Cast Your Vote! Cast Your Vote! Brother Jesse is a finalist in the Inaugural Black Man Can Awards in Journalism and Media

I am honored and humbled to be selected by TheBlackManCan.org and BlackCelebrityGiving.com as a finalist in the Inaugural Black Man Can Awards in the category of Media/Journalism. Congrats to ALL of the other finalists.

The organizers say often negative portrayals of black males make indelible impacts on how the people of the world view black men and boys. Media sources are saturated with such negative images, creating false perceptions in the minds of many. Minds from all races have absorbed many of these stereotypical images of our black men and boys; it is time for change.

These misconceptions still persist, thus great efforts to challenge the misperception of black men and boys are needed; the BlackManCan Awards will help aid in this effort. Born from the idea that positivity yields positivity, TheBlackManCan.org (BMC) and BlackCelebrityGiving.com (BCG) are excited to announce the Inaugural Black Man Can Awards! Recognizing accomplishments within the community and professional arenas, the awards will honor black men and boys in more than 10 categories who embody the definition of a positive black male!

We invite you to vote now in 12 categories and meet 60 fine men and boys who are the true example of a positive black male. Winners of the 2012 BlackManCan (BMC) Awards will receive an official crystal award trophy, website badge, bragging rights for one year and other sponsored products. Winners will be announced, Sunday June 17th, 2012, Father’s Day. “The only way to provide the positive contradiction to the prevailing Black Male image of today is to counteract negative images with positives ones,” says Brandon Frame Chief Visionary Officer of TheBlackManCan.org.
