It use to be a rite of passage for men to teach their sons all about vehicles.  So now especially in this fallen economy, these sons need to put their skills to work.  Even though cars have changed with all the new technology, there are plenty of opportunities out there for men and young males who are knowledgeable about cars. 
Men and especially young males ages 14 and older need to stop making excuses that they can't make money -- legally.  Remember when creating businesses, you want to create businesses that solves problems.  Men and young males who are good with vehicles, can set up several potential businesses to assist women.   Read more

If I Had A Son

What You Must Do Now To Save Your Children


June 1, 2015


By Cathy Harris, DearCathy.com, Advice Columnist


This is an open letter and national call to action to all black fathers to save black youths by helping them become successful business owners.  There is no blueprint to show anyone how to raise a black child but first all black fathers need to be a part of their child's life.


We can no longer tell our youths to go to school and get a good job.  Due to the failing economy, the whole paradigm has now shifted and that's why schools are serving as feeder systems into prisons.


We know that black males are the last hired and first fired in the workplace simply because when companies hire a black female, they have hired a minority who is: 1) a female, and 2) an African American.  So the company gets two quotas when they hire black females instead of black males.  So it will be extremely hard for black males, no matter their age, background or education to hold on to many jobs in America.


In the past black youths went to school, got out and got jobs and worked for 30 years and retired.  But now if you end up in the workplace, there's a good chance that you will be forced out no matter what type of credentials you have acquired.


Because of the economy, the people in charge in the workplace are bringing in their relatives and friends at an alarming rate, and this practice has totally polluted most workplaces in America.  


So why do we continue to prepare our children for a workplace that doesn't want them in the first place?  At this point, we have no other choice but to prepare our children to become business owners.


A Father's Duty:


With over 70% of homes being ran by black women, black men or fathers, must now step up to the plate and do the right thing and be in the lives of their children.  Black mothers are very strong individuals but still sometimes they need help!  Read More

Most Common Cancer in Men - 

Prostate Cancer


By Cathy Harris, DearCathy.com, Advice Columnist


June 1, 2015


Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in American men after skin cancer. African American men have the highest rate of prostate cancer in the world. Men with family histories of the disease are also at greater risk. In addition, the risk for prostate cancer increases with age.


Prostate cancer usually occurs in older men. It most often appears after age 50. Prostate cancer forms in tissues of the prostate (a gland in the male reproductive system). The prostate produces semen, the fluid that carries sperm. The prostate gland is found below the bladder and in front of the rectum.


Normally, the prostate is about the size of a walnut. As a man gets older, the prostate often becomes enlarged. More than one-half of American men over the age of 60, have some enlargement of the prostate. This is not usually caused by cancer but could possibly cause other problems.


While the exact causes of prostate cancer are not known, certain risk factors have been linked to prostate cancer. A risk factor is something that increases a person's chance of getting a disease. Aging is the greatest risk factor for prostate cancer. Family history also plays a role.


If a man's father or brother has cancer of the prostate, his risk is two to three times greater than average. Diet may also be a factor. Men who eat large amounts of animal fat, particularly fats from red meat, may face a greater risk of prostate cancer than men who eat less animal fat.


Often, there are no symptoms in the early stages of prostate cancer. If symptoms do occur, they can vary, depending on the size and exact location of the lump or the growth in the prostate. Since the prostate surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine and semen, any change in the prostate can cause problems with urination and ejaculation. However, similar symptoms can be caused by a number of things, including an infection or a noncancerous condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).


If a man has any problems with weak or interrupted flow or pain while urinating, painful ejaculation, blood in the urine or semen, or, a nagging pain in the back, hips or pelvis, he should see a health care provider or an urologist to find out what's going on. A health care provider may order tests to determine the cause of the symptoms. Read More

How To Interact With the Police 
in Your Car, On the Streets, 
In Your Home
Audiobook Available Now on:
Available as E-book, Paperback & Audiobook
  Preface - A Note to The Reader
Do you know what to do when stopped and questioned by the police - in your car, on the streets or in your home? If you answered "NO" to this question, you need to read this book! Not only should you read this book but you should tell everyone you love and care about to read it also.
Do you trust the police? The goal is to arm yourself with the knowledge and power you need so you don't become just another victim.
Not only should young males be watchful of actions by the police but what about sexual profiling in this country? Women who often drive alone are at just a higher risk of being accosted by the police as others.
Women are just as likely to be profiled as men by local, state and federal law enforcement officers especially since the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS.gov) in 2003.
Many women will no longer stop when directed by a police officer to pull over. Some will call 911 and ask for additional police to come to the scene and refuse to open their windows until backup police arrive.
Cops are known to rape or extort women for sex during highway pullovers. The situation is badly deteriorating. It comes as no surprise that unstable, aggressive bullies gravitate to police work, and quite a few are sexual predators.
Therefore, this book is an action plan for the entire family on what actions to take to protect themselves when driving a car, walking on the streets or in their homes.
As a business owner, community organizer and advocate, I have heard many, many stories about what the police is capable of and what they get away with. The reason for this is that most people do not understand their rights!
Advocates and activists don't trust local police agencies to self-investigate or police themselves. Nor do they trust district attorneys, grand juries, police commissions or local officials to be any more fair and impartial when investigating the police.
Many advocates don't understand that the Justice Department has always had on their books a strong arsenal of civil rights statutes to prosecute abusive police officers.
This office is equipped to dispatch their top civil rights lawyers to handle federal probes. But this will happen only if we demand it!
In the past it has taken major media attention, large scale protests and even a major riot, such as Rodney King LA riot of 1992, before the Justice Department has used its legal weapons.
Where there is evidence of sexual or racial profiling and/or police brutality, the Attorney General must send a strong message to law enforcement agencies that the Justice Department will go after lawbreakers whether they wear a "mask" or a "badge."
Not only will this book help you stay alive when you encounter a police officer, but if you are violated by the police, it provides an action plan on what steps to take to receive justice. Good luck!

What Communities Can Do to Help 
Save Youth
  • Open recreation centers back up.
  • Open tutoring and learning centers in the community.
  • Allow parents and other volunteers to come into schools like years earlier and teach kids how to read.
  • Extend library hours and stop closing libraries on Friday nights -- even if it is game night.
  • Make sure Chamber of Commerces and other business networks cater to youth entrepreneurs but BAN Network and Multi-Level Marketing (aka Pyramid Schemes) businesses.
  • Hold community parenting classes for mothers and include personal development classes.
  • Open 24 hours day-care centers so parents especially mothers can go to work or start businesses.
  • Allow kids to form businesses to teach families how to grow food again.
  • Form weekly or monthly shadowing/mentoring businesses where youths can follow adults for the entire day.
