  • 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.
