You should be able to distinguish a man from a boy, the way the act, talk and dress. But I notice that black men who are well past their 20's still dress, act and talk like these youngs boys/teenagers. Whats up with that?

General statements about any people group are dangerous. African American men tend to be trend setters in clothing style. What may seem childish to you may be stylish to others. It all depends on how you view the world and where you come from. Life is for living. Have fun, be fun, dress fun as long as you are taking care of your responsibilities

In general most of people grow up in their 20is - 30is and some never do grow up. That is case with all races.
Men Acting Like Boys…..It’s Everyone’s Problem
Jay Reding
Has the rise of powerful women turned men into boys? This is the question author Kay Hymowitz asks in her provocative new book, Manning Up. Hymowitz argues that men today are free from the traditional tests of manhood—marrying and providing for children—and this freedom comes at a price: an increasing number of men are stuck in a state of permanent adolescence.

An increasing number of men are stuck in a state of permanent adolescence.

The statistics are shocking. Colleges are reducing the standards for male applicants to balance out the majority of incoming women. Among Americans 25 to 34, 34 percent of women have bachelor’s degrees compared to 27 percent of men. Young women in major cities earn more than fifteen times more than their male peers. And before you think this is good news for women, it also means that the field of eligible bachelors is dwindling.

So, why are men failing to grow up? Is it the fault of radical feminists? Is it the fault of the media? …Should we blame Canada?

Hymowitz argues that the real problem is our changing culture, which has become detrimental to men. Fifty years ago, men in their mid-to-late twenties were expected to be financially independent, married, and well on their way to starting families. Society expected men to grow up—so they did.

(Some did mature but many did not and still are acting and thinking like boys in a state of permanent adolescence. I have seen and do see people axting like boys in a man's body.) Story Reporta

The “knowledge economy” has changed all that. The modern world encourages people to stay in school well into their twenties, all the while accumulating debt that makes it even harder to become financially independent and start a family. Plus, the skills required by a knowledge economy are skills that come more naturally to women. Jobs like those in the design and communication fields emphasize traditionally feminine skill sets. Even the traditional male bastions of law and management are becoming increasingly dominated by women.

It’s easy for women to say that the turnabout is fair play, but the fact is this: our economy and our culture are not well-served by a lost generation of American men. A healthy society needs a mix of masculine and feminine values. It was stereotypically masculine daring that invented the Internet and landed men on the moon, and women have reasons of self-interest to want a change in affairs, not the least being the desire for a responsible, dependable romantic partner.

Hymowitz observes how many women are finding the dating scene filled with men who are far from marriageable material. Biology and culture have conspired to make women naturally want to seek higher-status males—a natural biological imperative to find mates that can take care of future offspring. In other words, women don’t usually want to “marry down”. But what happens when the supply of marriageable men is incredibly low? We are about to find out.

(We are not about to find out. The "supply" has long dried up in the african american culture.) Story Reports

Researchers report that the marriage rate has dropped to a new low of 31.1, meaning there are about 31 marriages in the U.S. for every 1,000 unmarried women, researchers found. In 1950, that number was 90.2. In 1920, it was 92.3.

Just 26 percent of black women are married today, compared with 56 percent of Asian women, the ethnic group with the highest proportion of married women. And while the percentage of college-educated women who get married has changed little in the past 50 years, it has dropped most significantly among women without a high school diploma, the analysis revealed. Among women with a bachelor's degree, 60 percent are married, compared with less than 30 percent among those who never graduated high school.

Instead, today’s men are tending to live lives free of most responsibility. Hymowitz criticizes the empty male culture of Maxim magazine, Spike TV, and lives lived with frat-boy abandon. Instead of shouldering responsibility, many American males have become experts at shirking it.

What may well happen is a vicious cycle: as the supply of marriageable college-educated men dwindles, more and more women will decide that they just don’t need men in their lives. This is already starting to happen. There is an increasing trend of women choosing to become single mothers. And the more women who opt out of marriage, the more it encourages men to do the same.

What can we do to arrest these trends? Firstly, we need to fix our educational system. Right now, 60 percent of new college entrants are women, and men are falling further and further behind. This is not a tolerable outcome. Our education system is failing American men in the same way that it once failed women. Secondly, we need a cultural shift. Popular culture may not be the driving reason men are falling behind, but it certainly doesn’t help. Culture needs to put more value on men as husbands and fathers rather than man-children.

SEAL Veteran: Military Leaders Being Asked if They Will Disarm Americans

Paul Joseph Watson

Litmus test includes question of whether top brass are comfortable with firing on U.S. citizens.

Former Navy SEAL Ben Smith warns that the Obama administration is asking top brass in the military if they would be comfortable with disarming U.S. citizens, a litmus test that includes gauging whether they would be prepared to order troops to fire on Americans.

Smith provoked headlines last week when he appeared on Fox News to assert that the federal government was trying to provoke veterans into violence as an excuse to implement martial law.

Speaking exclusively to the Alex Jones Show, Smith stated, “Going back to the beginning of this administration, I’ve had friends within the community talking about how they were brought in and questioned with people from more towards the top side and the questioning….where it was pointing was do you feel comfortable disarming American citizens,” adding that this was one of the many “funny things” occurring within the military.

When Smith was asked by radio host Alex Jones if this line of questioning included a litmus test whereby military officers were asked if they would fire on U.S. citizens, he responded in the affirmative.

Smith said the litmus test was related to the recent firing of top military commanders Navy Vice Adm. Tim Giardina and Maj. Gen. Michael Carey.

Smith linked the premise to former Obama advisor Van Jones, who was forced to resign in September 2009 after his links with a Marxist organization were revealed.

“You drop the radical pose for the radical ends,” said Smith, paraphrasing Van Jones.

The idea of U.S. soldiers being asked if they will fire on American citizens during a crisis or mass disarmament program has emerged from several different sources over the last two decades.

In January, 2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Jim Garrow claimed he was told by a top military veteran that the Obama administration’s “litmus test” for new military leaders is whether or not they will obey an order to fire on U.S. citizens.

Concerns over U.S. troops being given orders to fire on American citizens in the event of mass gun confiscation first arose in May 1994 when hundreds of Marines at 29 Palms, California were given a survey as part of an academic project by Navy Lieutenant Commander Ernest Guy Cunningham which asked the Marines if they would, “Fire upon U.S. citizens who refuse or resist confiscation of firearms banned by the United States government.”

The survey was subsequently leaked because many of the Marines who took it were shocked by the tone of the question.

What is the underlying problem?

Krokodil use reportedly spreadin: What makes dangerous drug so addictive?

Krokodil use reportedly spreadin: What makes dangerous drug so addictive?

More cases of Krokodil use are reportedly popping up around the United States, prompting some medical professionals to warn that the addictive, poisonous drug has reached American shores.

The Chicago Tribune reported last week that at least six people in the Chicago area were suspected of having used the opiate drug that can cause the skin to rot away. A woman from Joliet, Ill. chronicled her krokodil addiction to Joliet Patch. And, an Arizona poison control center said in September it had received what was suspected to be the first two calls about cases of Krokodil use in the country.

Krokodil, scientific name desomorphine, is an opiate in the same family as heroin, oxycodone and codeine. Krokodil has a faster onset, shorter duration of high and is more potent than morphine.

Opiates are especially addictive because they directly influence the reward center of the brain. The more of an addictive substance a user takes, the more that center of their brain is activated, Dr. Richard Friedman, director of the psychopharmacology clinic at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City, told

"It's more rewarding than any other naturally occurring thing," Friedman said of an opiate drug. "Nothing feels quite as good as it does."

Krokodil has grown in popularity, especially in Russia, where heroin addiction is rampant. About 1 million users are estimated to be abusing the drug in Russia, according to the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. Vice chronicled the ongoing battle against the addictive drug in their documentary "Krokodil Tears."

It doesn't help that the drug is easy to produce at home with codeine, gasoline, paint thinner and a few other ingredients. Codeine is sold over-the-counter in Russia, and addicts can easily purchase these items necessary to cook the drug.

The finished product isn't purified and may contain toxic substances left over from the cooking process, which cause tissue damage to the veins and flesh and can result in gangrene, or body tissue that rots and dies. The drug got its nickname -- which means crocodile in Russian -- for the green, scale-like spots abusers develop after shooting up. The average user dies within two to three years after starting to use the drug.

"You're poisoning yourself," Friedman warned. "It's very corrosive and toxic."

While the sight of flesh falling off the bones may be enough to get an average person to avoid the drug, to the addict it's not as simple. Friedman pointed out that even though addicted persons see that their behavior is harmful and irrational, they still have a limited ability to stop because the reward center of the brain is so enriched by the drug. Not having the drug could lead to significant withdrawal symptoms that feel like an illness.

"When people are using this it's not so much about getting a high anymore, it's more about not going through withdrawals," Dr. Gerald Grosso, clinical director of Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach, Calif., told Grosso said he has personally never treated someone addicted to Krokodil.

Reports suggest some people resort to the drug once they're already addicted to other opiates. Grosso explained that people might start out abusing prescription opiates like oxycodone, but then progress to cheaper heroin once they start running low on funds. Krokodil would be the next step down, especially for those who are extremely addicted and low on cash. According to TIME, a hit of Krokodil costs about $8, but heroin can run up to $25 to $30.

Part of the problem is that attitudes are shifting towards opiate drug use, Grosso explained.

Friedman, who also hasn't personally seen any Krokodil users, believes everyone should be scared about this drug -- not just hardened users. There's a potential for many more cases, including first-time opiate users, especially since the drug is easy to make at home, unlike other opiates that have to be synthesized from the poppy plant.

"I would say there should be an alarm bell about this drug, because above just the fact that its another opiate unlike any other opiate that we know about this, one is married to a series of dangerous poisons," he pointed out. "You can't take this drug without actually poisoning yourself."

There are methods to treat opiate addiction, including taking other prescription opiates like methadone and suboxone. But opiate addiction is a chronic problem that comes with an extremely difficult withdrawal period.

"We need to find out what is the underlying problem and how do we address it, as opposed to just treating symptoms," he said.
