Charlie Sheen might behave not so badly if he had African parents, writes China Okasi in her Black Voices on Money story, Man, If Charlie Sheen Had Some African Parents.... Yep, the "winning" actor might not be disgracing himself and his family quite so much had he grown up hearing these words: "HEY! Come and answer your father's name!"

"The phrase is like a helpful command that nudges you to do something -- anything -- good, if only for the sake of your papa," says Okasi, who offers an insightful commentary on all things Sheen.

Sheen's story was just one of 85 that published on 17 AOL sites last week. Forty-one writers showcased their masterpieces, and you can see them all by scrolling down for a complete listing of all published works.
