B4L:

Jordans are OK to wear, better to wear Jordan's than the store brands .  With all this snow here I have my Tims on and will contiue to wear them.

I agree with soflorattler, the hangin pants are not cool.  I've never had gold teeth, so I would also the gold teeth are a no no.  Tight fitting clothes, shirts, pants etc. are also no no's.

Locks:  fine

Cornrows: :no: ...especially if you have a receding hairline...boy stop...

Jeans and starter Jerseys as a general wardrobe? :no:  (it can be ok every now and again depending on the event...ie football games, other sporting events)

I've seen men with bald spots and receding hairlines with locks (around the spot) and they look atrocious

Dangling his keys or fidgeting with his keys so you can see what kind
of car he drives.

The rosary as  a fashion  accesory

Unlaced Timberlands/Puffy coat/Jeans hanging off the butt/Skullcap w/The hoodie Look

Locs, leave that to young guys!!!

Basketball shorts(leave them at the gym or on the court) w/ the undershirt

White 3XL S T-shirt, Man Capris and Sneakers (although this style is hideous on men of any age)

I am not competing with anyone but myself.
I simply want to be a better person today than I was yesterday.

You should NOT be living with your mama unless you are her primary caregiver due to her illness/age or you are recovering from a recent divorce

Hanging with 21-25 year olds in the club on a daily basis.....

Using money orders to pay your bills...get a free checking account please...

Cashing your check at the check cashing place and flaunting a wad like you've done something...if you don't have at least 3-5 times that amount in your bank account sit down....as a matter of fact sit your a-- down anyway flaunting a wad of cash.....

To you former high school football players especially in small-town USA....let it go baby...we know how great you were....Friday nights you are at the game bragging and acting a fool with the opposing teams fans..be a fan but remember you are grown now...

I think that is it for now..

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
