Have we, as a people, settled for a measly 28 days (29 during Leap Years) of Black history?

Right, we need to listen to the clear voices of leaders and live it. The insults of white haters shows their disease, their spiritual emptiness. When we go under the spell and take insult in and hate ourselves, we lose self-respect and can attract more insult almost like we’re waiting for it. We need to see how we’ve been infected! I could care less about a $1200.00 pair of shoes. Money is more like a weapon, a protection. Shop and frisk: you’re not supposed to be able to buy nice things.
