LISTEN: Farewell Until Next Time (The Brother’s Keeper with Daniel Whyte III)

Dear Y.B.M.:

I trust that you have enjoyed reading these letters of encouragement and challenge as much as I have enjoyed writing them.

When my little brother got married some years ago, I shared some things with him for his consideration regarding the married life, as all older brothers do, I am sure. After I finished, I quickly told him — using the nickname his college mates had given him — “Now, don’t try to use the things I’m telling you the same way I am using them. You have to put your ‘Tonio’ on it.”

By this, I meant that, due to the fact that even though we are brothers, we are still two different people, our wives are two different women — “My wife was born and raised in Jamaica, your wife was born and raised in America. You can’t just take what I say and run with it verbatim; you have to put your ‘Tonio’ on it. In other words, you have to ‘eat the chicken and leave the bones’, and apply things — or not apply things — in a way that is good for you and your wife.”

Y.B.M., put your “Tonio” on all that I have shared with you in this book, and in Letters to Young Black Men as well.

As we look forward to my next and final book in this trilogy of letters to you titled, Even Mo’ Letters to Young Black Men, we will discuss the following important topics:

1. Character
2. Leadership
3. Finances & Business
And a whole lot more.

Until then, Pray! Think! Do!
