In an artcle at MyBrotha.com, Reaching Out to Your Brother
, the writer offered this description of an "Elite" brother.
We reserve the term, "elite" to describe only those men who know and understand the true meaning of being a man, not those of domineering, egotistical or pretentious character. We feel obligated to use the word "elite", simply because many Black men do not fall into this category. Those considered to be the best of the best, are those who have excelled in many facets of their lives. These men generate positive influence in the lives of young men and women; remain diligent in their personal endeavors and career-related goals; seek to grow, understand and respect their connections with the women in their lives; and through religion and spirituality, learn to walk by Faith and not by sight.
How do you measure up? What do you think about this description? Is this one of those "lightening bolt" terms that set folks off, and they miss the point? Is the writer indulging in polarizing brothers with this description?
