I taught my Black sons how to stay out of JAIL avoiding “fun” sex. And being a law-abiding citizen learning to navigate sex and women with all sorts of baggage in addition to the LAW unfortunately is a “miserable chore.”

I taught them about real life. Some children in our society don’t get to grow up and have fun with little or no consequences.
