WHY IS THIS A CRITICAL ISSUE?
A pervasive cultural mantra inside the African-American community is debilitating a generation of men and boys, with lifelong challenges to maintain healthy relationships with the women in their lives. Unreconciled parental anger leads to young and adult men replicating family behaviors patterns, because they are under the spiritual authority of those things they resent, and ultimately determine what they are attracted to as well. “Hate your Mamma, Marry Your Mamma” Stated simply, in order to ascend to an adult reconciled and healthy relationship with either parent, men must be empowered to understand that while they will always be their parent’s son, the time has to come when they are no longer their parent’s child
WHAT IS WHY HE HATES YOU ABOUT?
Janks Morton in his semi autobiographical work tackles head on the taboo subject of parental resentment in the African American community and how a lifetime of repressed feelings determined the outcomes of his life. As you turn the pages of the book, you will see how the 11th commandment of “Thou shalt not question thy Mother” led the author through a lifetime of delusion, which translated directly to his inability to maintain a sustained healthy loving relationship with any woman, anywhere.
Morton sheds light on a subject matter that too often is swept under the rug in the African-American community, and brings center stage an intimate and personal perspective on how his inability to develop an adult healthy and loving relationship with the matriarch of his family, sent him on a tailspin of unreconciled and repressed emotions. Morton unfolds a searing examination of an ideologue that challenges Father, Mothers, Daughters and Sons, to find a pathway to forgiveness for their first teachers of love lessons.
