Here is a broad, sweeping generalization that should not need debate: most women have more commitments than men. Men are blind to many things when it comes to women—and her commitments are no exception. Most of the women I have met are committed to their insecurities, their dysfunctional family, their rituals to manage their insecurities and a gut-bucket full of financial situations, featuring overwhelming debt.

Most males I have met have the same kind of commitments (but they are smaller in scale) with the exception of family commitments. Most males in my pathetic world (so far) are assumed to be incompetent/incapacitated/incarcerated so their family commitments are limited. The male commitment to insecurities, by the way, can dwarf those of women when males resort to physical violence to steal a sense of gravitas and relevance from others.

And, speaking of hormones, male recklessness (mixed with immature optimism) and hormonal drive can ‘encourage’ us guys to allow women into our lives with commitments that many us will eventually reject. Once we reject her commitments, we are thrown into the confusion of “men are afraid of commitment” or “men are afraid of her commitments.” As far as she is concerned (under a massive dose of American narcissism) there is no distinction between these confused two. It is therefore our mental-health exercise as ‘real’ men to make the distinction.

When we start this exercise, we become authentically aware of her commitments. And awareness often leads to being wary which is the slippery slope toward fear. My recommendation: do not be ashamed of this fear. I consistently failed to respect this fear because I consistently failed to respect women in terms of their commitments.

Like an idiot, I assumed that all adult people—especially women—were able to effectively communicate a list of their commitments. I failed as a “young man” (all the way into my early forties) that real people (including myself) are unable to list their commitments—and there will be no cool app that will help us realize exactly what we are committed to.

So, now I will try to remember a few interesting things on the Web that illustrate why we should be wary or outright afraid:

101 East—Australia’s Dowry Deaths. I had no idea that the families of the wives of many Indian women are obligated to give several gifts to the husband’s family. The husband, in this particular situation, killed his wife and then killed himself rather than deal with this commitment directly. It must me mentioned that all of the murder went down in Australia—not India. You might ask, What does this extreme example have to do with me? From my personal life, I now understand that sometimes when a brother is rebuffed by an Indian sister here in America she is not really being racist—she is trying to save his life!

How Home Ownership Keeps Blacks Poorer Than Whites. This article by Dorothy Brown, a professor of tax law at Emory University Law School, does not mention that black women are leading black men in home ownership. And what is also not mentioned is that this commitment can lead to a relationship where a functional Black man pours his financial resources into her commitment. When this situation does not lead to the desired effect from either party, the outcomes can be quite subtle but scary. Sometimes a couple stays together because the dude has no place else to go: all of his money is invested in property owned by a person that is not (behind closed doors) invested in him. I would be more impressed by a sister who rents a small apartment in a very posh neighborhood but owns properties similar to the sister from Affordable Real Estate Investments. What I am trying to say is that a commitment to one house is often not based on a business decision nor is it based on love for children.

101 East—Australia: Bringing Them Home. What happens when your superfine Indonesian wife “steals” your kid? This is a question a brother based in Australia has to answer featured in this 101 East report. I bring this negative news into the mix to remind brothers that dating internationally is not a perfect refuge from our domestic problems. There are many, hidden, family commitments that sleek brown girl in the cute outfit may have.

The American single mother’s burden—Inside Story Americas The American single mother is too easy a target for the expression of fear. I mention this here just to take the opportunity to admit that I was not afraid of single mothers at all as a young man.

The Stream—Family on your own terms. This report introduces the concept of co-parenting which is a millennial way of talking about joint custody. Good luck with that.

Emotional Recklessness isn’t the answer to the Racial Wealth Gap. “Attorney Antonio Moore uses a combination of data, and personal insight to explain how reckless emotions have become the new place to hide the consequence of extreme wealth inequality.” Now all you got to do, son, is take that commitment to recklessness and put it in a “love” relationship.

Buy this book at Amazon.com! By way of introduction, straight from his Twitter page: “Antonio Moore graduated from UCLA [and] Loyola Law School. He is [an] Emmy nominated producer of the documentary Crack in the System that aired on Al Jazeera.”

My way of introducing Antonio Moore is through this statement: the world-famous Nigerian musician Fela had to leave Africa and come to Los Angeles to learn about Africa. That North-American east-coast-based academic “of color” to this day might laugh at such a true statement. That is because there is a well-deserved, inherent disrespect for the West coast “of color” in general and Los Angeles in particular. Even as a Los Angeles native, I have been and will be guilty of this disrespect.

But what no assimilated dumb-ass can deny is that Los Angeles is known the world over for the place you come to establish the pinnacle of one’s success. That means Los Angeles natives have had the “privilege” of seeing up close and personal the intimate details of world-class white privilege. This is the leading reason why the Black and sane of us Angelenos appear so unappreciative or even “crazy” throughout the broke-ass, bootlicking world (and the world includes members of our own families). We are not impressed by cash-backed stunts novices think we are “too jealous” to see. So, when Mindy Kaling or some kid off Crenshaw by way of Senegal drops a new Tee Vee show we are not “pretending” to be unconcerned about their work. We are comparing their work from a vast back catalog of failed businesses that were based in Los Angeles.

Antonio Moore is on a first name basis with the Black billionaire, Byron Allen. I am sincerely unfazed. Here is the video from the tonetalks channel:



My previous use of ‘broke-ass’ is, again, not an ignorant statement. Almost every person of an African color, having lineage leading back to slavery is effectively a broke-ass. (Remember what ChuckD said kids? Our status is the saddest // I don’t care where you at: Black) Antonio Moore has the refined, astute data to back up this sweeping statement. The very informative Yvette Carnell channel (BreakingBrown.com) has the groundbreaking video, “‘We Overstate the Value of Education for the Purpose of Economic Gain,’ Says Duke Professor”:



I regard this video as groundbreaking—especially for those producers/journalists/artists that are younger than me—because the best kept secret of the post-Cosby 20th century is the finances around faking-it-to-never-ever-be-making-it in the black world. This issue is very, very personal and I am still pleasantly astonished that Antonio Moore, Yvette Carnell and Irami Osei-Frimpong are working hard to make this a mainstream talking point in the so-called middle-class or even upper-class black social sets. I point out these three (and there are others out there) because these three do not link their talking points up with any commercial products. These three are not making shopping-channel infomericals out of Black poverty.

Now, these three do ask for donations. I do not prefer this behavior. I would rather see gainfully employed groups of blacks funding voices like these behind the scenes. It would be a living, breathing demonstration of self determination in white-owned venue like YouTube.com (and every other mufukkin thing in the Black world). What my little “fantasy” (for too many Negroes) would demonstrate (especially for Black men) is that we are getting this message out in spite of the fact that we are working for “the man.” We would then not appear arguably hypocritical complaining about how broke-ass blacks are taking charity and then turn around and ask for charity. Deeper still, this would demonstrate publicly what I know privately, that authentic Black people can easily move between super-white-bread worlds and the deep hood without it looking like an episode of Shaft in Africa.

You see, kids, a few of us LAUSD kids in the 1970s were deliberately and systematically trained by radical Black teachers (mostly Black women, including my mother) to infiltrate higher education to get a “job” and send the “job” money back to the ’hood by choosing to live in the ’hood (which is now being gentrified by non-Black people from all over the United States and the broke-ass world). Too many of these Black women teachers from my past vastly underestimated the Reagan-era backlashes of the 1980s (featuring crack cocaine) and that is why a brother like me is sitting here writing this from a place of alienation and aspersions of “he crazy”…

So, when I say that these efforts by this young brother, Antonio Moore, is better than nothing, it is because I can imagine Black people doing way, way better. Because I saw us doing way, way better. It is my responsibility as an elder to respond to these efforts. So here are a few points that may not seem so “crazy” right about now:

  • Antonio Moore and Yvette Carnell are both dipping into the Booker T. Washington school of thought. The Black academics from the 1980s that trained me were overwhelmingly radical and Marxist and therefore often condescended to Booker T. Washington. We are so broke as a people that we should not make this mistake again. Booker T. Washington has something to offer contemporary Black people.
  • To remove ancient Africa from the African-American imagination is exactly like removing ancient Greece and Rome from the Euro-centric imagination. Both thefts will result in dumb-ass mufukkas. It is typical, American anti-intellectualism. I became an intellectual as a child a few blocks away from a dude selling crack on a street corner—so I don’t need to hear about blacks being “too broke” to care about ancient Africa.
  • To confuse or conflate contemporary, materialistic, Euro-centric, continental Africans with the universe-scale power of ancient African Deep Thought is a bitch move, lacking all “nuance.”
  • There is a deliberate underestimation of the role fucked up members of one’s black-ass family play in the undermining of Black wealth. You cannot turn around and ask donations from people whose families you’ve insulted so one may be motivated not to go into detail about this.

Bottom line: being authentically Black in the media capital of the entire planet has its advantages. When I make a statement like, ‘In the late 1990s, after failing several times to develop strategic, Black partnerships, I surrendered and turned myself in to white corporate America,’ you will not laugh and say, “Bryan, you so crazy.” There is a reason why a glum, “negative,” non-ass-kissing Black person has lasted in the white American corporate world for so long (over two decades). And this “success” is due to the Black women that trained me (and my father)—but, again, authentically Black people know this get-a-job, American-dream shit is actually defeat.

There are deliberate, policy-level, strategic white reasons why you have never heard of Bryan Wilhite or any other Los Angeles native with my lineage, training and character (which most niggas regard as useless and crazy). I literally sat across the table from future-billionaire Dr. Dre (when he was in the World Class Wreckin’ Cru) in the Crenshaw offices of 1580 KDAY. Ava DuVernay interviewed my longtime childhood friend (also a product of Los-Angeles-based, Black-radical education) not by chance or accident. The white folks and their unwitting minions know exactly where we are and how to keep us here. It takes a nation of millions to hold us back. What Antonio Moore and his crew are trying to do is break-brown down these artificial walls for a new generation.
