100 Black Men Wearing Suits Greeted Kids On The First Day Of School For An Incredibly Vital Reason
Erasing the stigma, one high five at a time.
By Mandy Velez

There’s a certain stereotype that follows men of color collectively, wherever they go, no matter what they do. It’s the notion that they’re deadbeats, thugs or just simply not that involved in their community.

DeVaughn Ward and Pastor AJ Johnson know these stereotypes all too well, so they planned an event that puts those notions to shame — just in time for the first day of school. After seeing a group of men in Georgia greet kids on their first day, Ward and Johnson knew they had to bring the idea….

I’m in love with this “WHY TF YOU LYING?” Dude..

Yesterday I captured the best video my daughter will have with her father. She has opened his heart to what true love feels like and he or her will never get that unconditional love from nowhere else because the bond that God had set between them is unbreakable. I promise to never tear that apart because the way she smiles at him she knows Daddy always gon have her back and as her mother it’s my job to make sure that smile stays there. God is working….keep working Lord

I’m not crying, you are! OMG I am so crying…I’m crying.

You know what Black Man doesn't get enough credit for being excellent?

Lewis Hamilton

The first ever, Black, Formula 1 Driver.

From his wiki:

In his first season in Formula One, Hamilton set numerous records, while finishing second in the 2007 Formula One Championship, just one point behind Kimi Räikkönen. He won the World Championship the following season, becoming the then-youngest Formula One world champion in history before Sebastian Vettel broke the record two years later. Following his second world title in 2014, he was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year. He is the only driver on the current grid to have won at least one race in each season he has competed to date, with McLaren from 2007 until 2012, and with Mercedes since 2013. He has more race victories than any other British driver in the history of Formula One and is currently 5th on the all-time wins list, with 39 wins.

I know we give Serena, Venus and our Olympians a lot of support, but this man is out there breaking barriers. More credit to him, especially in an elitist racing circuit as F1.
