Dr. Charles Singleton Shares "A Father’s Day Story for ALL Times And Seasons -- Agape Love!"
Left Father And Son: Jason (son) and Larry (Dad) Lovelace | Written By Dr. Charles Singleton (Right) 
Yes, as time goes by, seemingly, for many years now, I have talked and walked alongside my dear friends: Jason, a 37- year-old man (son), with verbal and physical birth challenges, and Larry, the father, who loves and cares for him nightly and daily; as the two of them walk as one.

Jason, while walking often, must carefully hold on to his father’s shirt or jacket; but he is never left behind.  Because, his birth from this motherly earth burdened him with dearth: cerebral palsy, spastic paralysis, apnea-breathing- stoppage, short falls, missed steps; notions of glee, and occasional laughter of liveliness, you see.

Jason’s and Larry’s love for each other speaks to me every time I am with them at Stonecrest Mall, Lithonia, GA, Stone Mountain Park, Stone Mountain, GA, and elsewhere.  From this fatherly-loved experience, I am so deeply touched in my heart, mind, soul, and throughout my entire earthly-spirit.  Inseparably, you see my friends, father’s love, from this strong man (Larry’s heart-felt example), who helps his son Jason to securely stand, walk and talk, is the absolute mainstay of human kindness and our existence.  For there is more to the eyes that we often do not see.  Indeed, and truly, this fatherly love and sincere affection is extraordinarily outstanding; father’s love is just “like a mother’s love for her child, she will do anything, she will do it with a smile, and when trouble comes everything is alright, that's what she will say.  She is up early in the morning and sometimes late at night, doing all she can to make everything alright.” --- Love Will Go All The Way, Lee Williams & the Spiritual QC's, 1998

See Why Outspoken Columnist Tolson Banner Calls Out Bernie Sanders And Cornel West On Why We Can't Wait For Reparations

A CALL TO BERNIE SANDERS AND CORNEL WEST ON REPARATIONS: "BLACK PEOPLE CAN'T WAIT!

Nationwide --  Have you ever been caught in the middle of "sumptin" where it seemed as if there was no way out? Like table tennis, you are "pinged and ponged" between two opposing forces: red and blue states. Incessantly, you are slammed into the net because neither side is willing to reconcile the dichotomy of America's ongoing white tribal war: benign neglect by Democrat liberals and recalcitrance by Republican conservatives.

Malcolm X referred to this as the fox or the wolf for black people. This is the nature of reparations where white people are either asking black people to be patient like the Biblical Job or resign ourselves to the waiting room, get in line, take a ticket and listen out for their number (untold millions of Africans who died, as well as, those who were enslaved during the Christian/Atlantic enslavement trade) - which to this day has never been called. No reconciliation; no atonement; and no healing.


This constant request from white people (some blacks as well) to be patient and wait are the critical reasons why Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote the book Why We Can't Wait. King laid out several reasons to make his case during the tumultuous 60's. Those same reasons are applicable today for black people: disillusionment with the way justice is served up for black people; lack of confidence in politicians and the government; decolonization of Africa (today neo-colonialism); living out the true meaning of the Emancipation Proclamation; and economic inequality.
