In the November 1, 2007 edition of Clutch Magazine, Angie Stone discusses the background to this song: "I can honestly say that in the past, for me - I can't really speak for everyone else - men have a problem with women who are making more money or who are positioned higher. And it definitely tears down the black family. I feel like it's designed that way - that's why I did the song 'Brother.' I wanted to make sure that men knew that we are not to judge love by the monetary value in it. We should definitely judge it for the foundation and for the heart and for the genuineness of what love is about as opposed to what it can bring to the table. Love is pure, love is innocent, love is broke."
Erica from Nairobi, Kenya...oh so that is what it is about makes perfect sense.i thought it was about appreciating the good men in society.
Eugene from Minneapolis, MnYeah, you go Angie!!! I have always loved this song! I thought it was about choosing a "good" the "black" man instead of complaining about the things that aren't happening and are happening that's not suppose to happen. What Angie is descibing makes sense fully.
"White "Christmas" was so popular that Bing had to re-record the song five years after the original 1942 recording because the original masters had been worn out from all the pressings. This is the version that became a holiday tradition.
