WHERE HAVE ALL OF THE REAL MEN GONE? | LANCESCURV

In today’s society, the narrative often painted by the media tends to focus on the downtrodden and unmotivated men who seem to lack direction and drive. While it’s undeniable that there are men who fit this description, it’s equally important to recognize that there are many good men who stand as pillars of their communities. However, a pressing issue remains: the passionate commitment of these good men to play their roles as real men within the community seems to be waning.

Reflecting on the past, especially within the black community, we recall an era where men acted as sentinels and guardians. These were the men who took it upon themselves to ensure the safety, growth, and development of their neighborhoods. They were the real police, not in the sense of law enforcement, but as community leaders who resolved disputes, guided the youth, and offered their wisdom and resources to anyone in need. Their actions were driven by a profound sense of duty and love for their community.

Today, while there are still many good men, their presence and influence don’t seem as pronounced as in the past. The question we must ask ourselves is why. What has changed in our society that has led to this disconnection?

Highlighting the Good Men

There are still countless men who are quietly making a significant impact. These are the men who mentor young boys, who provide for their families, and who step up in times of crisis. They might not make headlines, but their influence is deeply felt by those around them. These men understand that being a real man is about more than just providing financial support; it’s about being a role model, a protector, and a leader.

Men like these are the unsung heroes of our communities. They are the coaches who spend their weekends training young athletes, the volunteers who organize community events, and the fathers who are present in their children’s lives. They embody the essence of what it means to be a real man, and their contributions cannot be overstated.

The Disconnection

However, there’s a growing concern about those who have distanced themselves from this role. In previous decades, the community itself often held men accountable, ensuring they stayed engaged and committed. Nowadays, with the rise of individualism and a shift in societal values, many men find themselves without the same level of communal support and expectation.

The proliferation of digital distractions, economic pressures, and the erosion of traditional community structures have also played a role. Men today are often bombarded with conflicting messages about masculinity and their role in society. This has led to confusion and, in some cases, a retreat from the responsibilities that define real manhood.

The Call to Action

To address this issue, we must first acknowledge and celebrate the good men among us. By highlighting their contributions, we set a positive example for others to follow. We must also create spaces where men feel empowered and encouraged to step into their roles as community leaders and role models.

Rebuilding a sense of community is crucial. We need to foster environments where men can connect, share their experiences, and support each other. Mentorship programs, community organizations, and local initiatives can all play a part in this.

Ultimately, the strength of our communities relies on the commitment of real men who are willing to stand up and be counted. It’s time to reignite the passion for community involvement and leadership that once defined manhood. By doing so, we can ensure that the legacy of real men continues to inspire and uplift future generations.

In conclusion, while the media may often highlight the negative, it’s essential to remember that there are still many good men out there. Their presence may not be as loud, but their impact is profound. We must encourage and support these men, while also challenging those who have lost their way to reconnect with the values and responsibilities that define true manhood. The future of our communities depends on it.
