Barack Obama on Tuesday railed against toxic masculinity, saying at an event with NBA superstar Steph Curry in Oakland that being a man isn’t about being “able to dominate,” but about being “responsible, working hard, being kind, respectful, [and] compassionate.”

“All of us have to recognize that being a man is first and foremost being a good human,” the former president said. “If you’re confident about your strength, you don’t need to show me by putting somebody else down.”

“Show me by lifting somebody else up,” he added.https://www.menshealth.com/trending-news/a26426959/barack-obama-steph-curry-being-a-man/

I cannot agree more with former President Barack Obama's statement. Being a man is really being a good person to everyone and helping them.

I remember when I was in the Haitian airport and President Obama came on the TV. I immediately felt proud to be an American. His heart. His heart. His heart. He is still leading with heart. I miss that. I miss him.

His heart? You mean like when he ordered drone strikes on innocent women and children?

Are you delusional, how about his actions in Flint, Michigan and the water crisis. That was in the U.S. Actions speak louder than words, words can be deceiving as we are painfully reminded every time the Dump opens his mouth.

It’s amazing how many ignorant people out there calling names to someone that is intelligent. But because he is black they put their hood on.
