*The untimely death of well-known YouTube influencer Kevin Samuels is the latest example that tomorrow is not promised. That’s why it’s important the message you preach should be the life you lead! Samuels made a name for himself criticizing mostly Black women for what he called destructive behavior unconducive to healthy relationships. While I understand and might agree with some of his arguments – it turns out Samuels was leading a double life: Promoting family connections while not having the best relationship with his own family members.
Samuels’ own mother admitted she found out about the death of her only child the same way I did; via social media. That proves he wasn’t as close to his mom as he should have been. If a man doesn’t respect his mom enough to stay in touch with her and to see about her well-being, he’s not the kind of man I would seek for a personal relationship.

Was he a hypocrite? Click the video above and let’s talk about it.
