According to Twitter, gone should be the days of the Black proverb “I ain’t one of your little friends” that has lived in our households since (what feels like) the beginning of time.

Recently, a man by the name of Dana White took to the social networking platform to give a brief breakdown of why he feels that it’s actually imperative for Black parents to be their child’s first friend.

“Black people, you can absolutely be your child’s friend and parent. If you can’t figure out that balance and understand why it’s necessary, maybe don’t have kids,” he wrote in the now-viral tweet. “A Black child’s first and best friends should be at home.”

White continued by expressing that a lot of the younger generation in the Black community haven’t been able to say that they were provided safe havens throughout their adolescence.

“I’ve worked with too many young people over the years who can’t tell their parents anything because that relationship is strictly ‘do what I say or else,'” he said. “This is not a world that loves or is friendly to Black children. They will learn that young and be reminded often. Be a soft place.”

However, the user didn’t quite end it there. He then followed up with a thread of other tweets, further detailing the dire need for Black children to be allowed spaces of security from their parentals in today’s social climate.

“This is not a world that loves or is friendly to Black children. They will learn that young and be reminded often. Be a soft place,” White elaborated.

Of course, White’s rant welcomed a bunch of opinions from others. Some sat in agreement, while others blatantly disagreed.

Here’s what they had to say about the topic at hand…
