Hello!

What do you think about when you see people walking around with their "pants hanging down"? This is a book that we all need to read and begin to move towards a positive understanding of "Why" and "How" things go to be how they are. Also what we should try to do to get back to where we need to be. Chapter titles include "It Takes A Village", "Jail Is Not A Place To Be", "Consumer Con Game", "Women At Fault", "Taking Care Of a Non-Working Man", and many others. www.pantshangingdown.com gives you more details. genestubbson@pantshangingdown. com. ______ Book Reviews____ Most of us accept the adage that "it takes a village to raise a child." However, when a child makes a big mistake in judgment or conduct, we don't blame the village, we blame the child. Rather than simply focus on the child, this book invites the village to look in the mirror for real answers to the troubles of our children. The village has changed and yet we question why our children have changed. Sorting out the ills of the village is the "true prescription" for healing the village's sick children. Pants Hanging Down reminds us that introspection, or self-examination, is a far healthier outlook than the "blame game". PHD is simply a "must read" for those who prefer the former. ------> Rep. Harold V. Dutton, Jr., State Representative - District 142, State of Texas ..... Gene Stubbson has written the most important book in my opinion in the last twenty years. He is an old man in a young man's body. Stubbson has captured the essence of my generation in a new philosophy that is so needed in our nation as it relates to our youth crisis in America today. How my mind reverted back to what he called a time when the "whole community" raised our families. How my heart lit up when this great young author talked about re-establishing family order. To quote this his eloquence, he writes "As the child's parent we need to set the example. We need to be structured as it is in nature and every civilized society whether it be industrialized or still hidden in the tall trees of primitive environments. We need to serve as examples as to what ought and should be done that produces productive members of society." I believe that Stubbson is right when he says that "we as a village have a responsibility to operate within a set of rules", just like we are taught in our education system. I agree. And I am now forced to ask too, "Where is the village?" Where are the congregations of homes, houses, families and people who lived their lives in small communities? Stubbson gives us the answers. Chapter two of this great book leads us out of the "city mentality" back to the "village", where we can be nourished, nurtured, and protected from ourselves. -----> Willie Jones, Senior Pastor New Mount Calvary MBC, Houston, Texas...... One of the most profound statements I've ever heard during my years as a criminal justice professional is ," You practice what you value and value what you practice." Meaning, what's in you will come out. Everything you try to hide is "oozing" out the side. Everything you try to contain will not be restrained. Prov. 23:7 states," So a man thinketh, so is he." Moreover, what's in your heart will manifest in your mind and what's in your mind will develop into your behavior and how you act. Who you are, regardless of what you say, and how others perceive you, is how you will be treated. PHD nails it! This "in-our-face" literary masterpiece personifies the "cancerous mentalities" plaguing our society today. Many of us degrade the hip-hop culture for showcasing their "nakedness". However, we as the upper echelon, fail to realize our "pants are hanging down", so to speak, in areas more pertinent than clothes. For they can change their clothes quicker than you can change your attitude. We all need to get this book as soon as it is released. -----> Toni Netters-Rutherford, Probation Officer...... "Pants Hanging Down" (PHD) is an excellent book that gets you thinking. It's an introspective work which analyzes and reviews the "causes and effects" of the lack of participation of "the village" in raising the children. ----- >Alphonso Delaney - Boyscout Master..... ?Thank you for taking the time to write something that not only I can relate to because that's how I was raised and grew up, but something that the kids growing up today need to read as well as their parents to remind them that it is because of the decisions that they have made that things are the way they are today. God bless and congratulations.? -----> Iesha Williams, Caterer Houston, TX..... ?In this book, Gene Stubbson has confronted the very core of the demise of the family, particularly those in the African-American community. His approach to ?Pants Hanging Down? takes you far beyond the sight of exposed dirty underwear. This book challenges you to look at the deficits in your life and how you contribute to the demise of our community and perhaps the dysfunctional aspects of our family. Gene should be commended for his courage to stand in the midst of issues and call a spade a spade. This book will help you become a better family member and gives you food for thought relative to being a part of improving your community. Gene, I salute you and look forward to the positive impact this book will have on our community.? ----->Talvin Paul, VP Youth Advocate Gulf Coast of Texas, Louisiana Mississippi ..... ?My feedback on your book is good. I commend you as a writer as I myself am an author. ?I thought the book had a positive effect and made some great points. I wish you continued success in your endeavors!? ----- >Brianne Smith..... ?I believe that the book shines a bright light for everyone who reads it, to take notice and become more focused on the sights around them. When they take notice then they will try to do more, and say more about the impact that this image of ?pants hanging down? has on our society.? -----> Betty Hinton, New Mt. Calvary MBC Houston, TX..... ?It really is a good thought provoking work of art.? -----> Barbara Owens, member New Mt. Calvary MBC..... ?An unparalleled literary work. PHD offers a farsighted solution to counterbalance the myopic perspective a segment of society has about today?s youth. Gene Stubbson proves he has his finger on the pulse of young people of this generation and I?m hopeful that this book will have a ?carryover? effect to the next generation as well. Excellent job, Gene. I can?t wait for your next book.? -----> Jack Coachman, Banking professional..... I am so proud of you. You have made a difference in our community and it is just getting started. As a high school teacher, I deal with the reality of this issue daily and usually, it is a direct result of trouble and misdirection with that youth predominantly stemming from a lack of home discipline. Everyday I speak the words, "Young man, pull up your pants, have some pride about yourself," or "Don't give people something to judge you by that is negative before they have had a chance to know you." I have found it refreshing that students are interested in the book. When they see it on my desk, the cover always sparks a question and then the door is opened to discussion. And a discussion is exactly what we need. -----> Phylicia Hill, M.Ed North Shore High School Career & Technical Education Chair.....
