YOUNG MEN WHO CONCERN ME HOUR

Interesting question. Objectively he is an ideal candidate to be one. I have complicated feelings about Romeo though. A somewhat unifying theme among Young Men Who Concern Me, is that their troubles were not of their own making. This can be argued false for many of the Young Men, such as Brian who’s troubles come from pressure to succeed, but as you see in the car scene at the beginning of the movie, that pressure is largely external.
Romeo’s troubles are romantically based. I don’t have infinite sympathy for romantic troubles. I am concerned about the violent climate Romeo lives in, and I suppose that stems into the fact that their tragedy wouldn’t exist if the adult in their lives acted maturely.
Romeo is a concerning young man, but I would not call him a young man who concerns me. There’s a certain chronic element to the young men who concern me. Their lives are concerning to me in the long term. Romeo’s life is concerning, but not in the painful oh oh oh way of the Young Men Who Concern Me.
The criteria for being a YMWCM isn’t very logical though, it’s more emotion based. But in any case, Romeo doesn’t make the cut.

After seven years on your television screen, Shawn Hunter moved to New York City, where he became an alcoholic. No, I’m kidding. He married the love of his life, Angela Moore. That’s not true, either, but he did become a world-famous poet. Actually, last I heard he was the East Coast representative of The Center, a fundamentalist cult.
You may have picked up on the fact that I’m making all of this up. The dark truth is… Shawn has been locked in my basement for 12 years. It’s really best for both of us. I’m able to move on (well, except when people confuse me for him), and, as a fictional character, he’s much safer down there.
Because they seem totally capable of getting their shit together.
