I am beyond baffled at the legacy our Black, especially Jamaican men are leaving behind. I am a 80’s baby and I grow and see my father with over 8 baby mom and 12 plus kids. I think the lifestyle is NASTY per say, but At least he took care of All his children, he just couldn’t tame his Penis. From My Generation upward I notice Most of these Men want to plant seeds all over and forget it comes with a responsibility. For the life of me I cannot understand these men that their Dad skip town on their Moms, but yet they want to do the same thing to their Children. Did they forget how it felt wanting just to see Daddy, no matter if he had 50Cents and not even could see Daddy. I am begging for Some Male opinions as to why they do this and how do they sleep at night not knowing if their kids eat or sleep on the floor at nights. Most of these dancehall men are buying all the high price items for them and their New girlfriend that they are impressing and not even a dollar going towards their own flesh and blood. This all hit a nerve for me as my Child’s father is living this exact life. The worst part about this is these men just continuously move on to another victim and just to start the sufferization cycle again. At least the Americans do a little better in this department because Uncle SAM FORCE THEM to take care of the children until they are 18/21. Please do not suggest that I picked a better baby father, he was the “ perfect” man until I had My Child. I guess he figured I was now under his spell and at the mercy of his discretion. Everyday you see him he is clean, and if you didn’t know him you would not know he had Children because he has no time for them. My Mother told me to leave it to God as only he can show this Donor a sign.
I know I am not the only female in this situation, but I wanted to voice my opinion as it seems to now be the norm in the Jamaican Community. Why is it when break up occurs the Men forget about the Children with the EX?, Why do they feel as tho the Mother is the only person responsible for taking care of that Child? Why does it entice y’all to pour Champagne on dance floor instead of investing that $$$ into your child? It is a sad case when the poorest of people have the most Kids and then turn around cannot and will not take care of them; Then they wonder why the White folks are adamant to stay Faaaaaaaaaaar away from Us a a race/people.Funny thing is now half as these same men will remember they have Kids once Trump is ready to deport them. All of a sudden, their kids need them , they can’t go home.
