I've been sitting here for a few minutes thinking of an excuse for publishing a Happy Father's Day piece a day after Father's Day. Well, an excuse other than "We're Black as hell, man. You all, of all people, should know this by now." But bullshit excuses are for Marcia Clark and Warriors fans. (Too soon?) And what better post-Father's Day lesson to our Black babies than to teach them how to embrace their Blackness? How not to be ashamed of CPT existing as the default?

Anyway, I had an amazing first Father's Day yesterday, and I hope the rest of you dads out there can say the same. Happy belated!
