It’s Time for Boys to Become Men

So what does a boy do? For starters a boy likes to play games. Boys play games with other people and themselves. Boys likes toys, not real things that begin to move and shape the world. Boys like to play but do not engage in the productive activities of work. Boys like to tell jokes and be rhetorical. Boys like to pretend to be deeply involved when they are only “just playing.”

When that boyish mentality manifests in an adult body they become preoccupied with their toys. They like the flashy cars and sound systems over their children’s needs. They are more interested in impressing their homies than anything else. They have no major interest in anything beyond themselves. When you are preoccupied with someone for revenge or to get over on and take from, then you are a boy.

There is nothing wrong with a game as a means of recreation, but when the game becomes a substitute for your life plan, then you are still a boy. When other people are laying plans to shape the world and you are playing cards, then your boyishness is an illness. When you keep getting locked up and do not change your ways, then you are still a boy. When you put your girl or woman before you do your child, then you are still a boy. When other people are reading and writing books and you are shooting pool, then the game is a weapon against your progress and our progress. Until we stop playing games and start dealing with the imperatives of a “man’s” world, we will remain in real trouble.

Many of the problems that we face in our communities can be understood as byproducts of boys who should be men. The homicide rates are clearly examples of boys playing with life. The neglect of children by their fathers is evidence that boys are playing in the streets rather than taking care of their responsibilities.

We have a choice to give up our boyish conduct and set forth on the path to manhood. We must first recognize our confusion about the definition of manhood and understand that many of who we are calling “men” are either simply males or boys at play.
