Mr. Prairie View hosts seminar for gentlemen

Mr. Prairie View 2012-2013 Timothy Bryant hosted the "What Is The PVAMU Man?" April 22.
"This was setup so we can understand how to respect each other, how to tell the truth, and how to be consistent with integrity in everything you do," Bryant said.
Bryant wanted the audience to have a panel that could provide different interpretations of the perfect Prairie View A&M University man.
The panel consisted of members Kariss Gordon, Ashley Williams, 2012- 2013 Ms. PV Chasmine Cousins, Joe Rivers, Abimbola Daramola, and life coach James Martin II.
Different from similar seminars, this one included hilarious skits and dramatic performances that showcased what a PVAMU man should and should not in relationships.
The seminar was packed with eager students hoping to figure out what a PVAMU man really stands for.
Sex was the first topic brought up at the seminar, with Ashley Williams stating that she believes men and women should try to abstain from sex until marriage because of the emotional stress that can come with it.
"When you have sex with someone you give not only your body to them but your mind and soul also," said Williams.
It was not long after one of the major issues in African American society, the way some black man dress today, came up.
"One of the biggest things I hate right now is seeing black men with the sagging pants down to their thighs," said Martin. "You can't wear that, you have to dress up to get what you want in life."
The seminar did not only give the audience insight on how to become more refined versions of themselves, it allowed them the chance to establish relationships with each other.
Bryant allowed all the male viewers to introduce themselves to the room and sometimes to an unsuspecting crush.
Even with Bryant's help one audience member stated he still found it hard to approach women because of his fear of rejection.
Martin said, "Most men should present themselves with all the confidence they can have because most men who approach women rudely have swagger deficiency. It's a trial and error thing; you have to go through rejection to be able to get over the fear."
Freshman business marketing major Sean Lewis felt that the seminar was a success in getting the message across that black men should set standards for themselves to uphold and to always respect women.
"I loved it and it was great. It gave us something to look forward to with future Mr. PV seminars," said Lewis.
