fine man friday...

eventually i may come up with a better term than "fine man friday" but for the time being, that's the tag i'm giving it... fridays are my days to pay homage to the fine men i like to look at... perhaps i'll add a little content like i did a couple of years ago with my chocolate brown brother/brown brother lust week...

the fine man i've chosen for this friday is....
Lonnie Rashied Lynn, Jr. AKA Common Sense- now known simply as Common

Okay, I don't know anything about fine man fridays, but since yawl up in here oohing and oouuuuwe-ing, let a brother know what constitudes a fine man. I mean, is a bald head a must? Or maybe it's their bank account.

I'm just asking because I's like to be somebodies good time friday. *smile*

This man right here just oozes sex appeal.. yes he is a FINE MAN..

Carey, um.. the bank account isn't what makes him a FINE man, and it isn't the bald head though on Common it is a plus..

There are many things that constitutes a fine man.. but this I'll leave that to Ms. KIA for her to divulge to you!

my definition of a fine man is one who has character as well as charisma... whether he has a bald head like common or a head full like damian marley.

but it's more than that. from my upcoming brothers, i hope that you'll see that they are more than appealing to the eye but men who have something to say. men of standard. and they all won't be hollywood-fine but perhaps hood-fine or maybe even plain-fine.

@carey... i'm sure you are more than somebody's "good time friday" but somebody's "good time sunday thru saturday"! , a "365fine"! and you surely fit the bill... you're a thinking man. i like that. a man with an opinion and you don't seem afraid to vocalize.

Fine Man Friday works for me.

But what am I going to do? I haven't had none in 6 months and I am trying to go 6 more months.

Girl, looking at fine chocolate men is going to . . . I'll survive. Keep them coming. It will be all good.

I'll use your picks as inspiration for the love list I am currently working on.

Talk to me now, MsKnowsIt. You sho know what to say. :-)

Yeah, of course I was being facetiuos, but on the other hand, I was making a statement, or asking the question of what constitutes a fine man.

Generally, when I hear the word "fine", I hear an outward appearance.

Being a man, and being around men in casual situations, when we hear women say a dude is fine (with a lustful tone) we sometimes shake our heads and say "she/they don't know what they are in for".

Of course many women are only speaking on the groove thang, yet based on the comment is this thread, we all know, or should know, ugly goes to the bone.

But Ms Know, all that aside, I am a single black man in America (a thinking man as you said) so, I'm thinking, I'll be yo huckleberry on any given Friday, or saturday, or any day. :-)

I listen to Common's music, here and there. He has dropped some gems in his career that speak of positive messages and unspoken truths.

Common is the brother who, when I finally decide to go bald, I will credit with giving me the go-ahead.


A true brother.

A Song for Assata is my favorite Common song.
