quote:380 years of racism and oppression can not be easily reversed in five, ten, or fifteen years
In all seriousness - could YOU lay out a plan of how the latent effects of "380 years of racism and oppression" are going to finally be dissolved?
Will this be from ACTIONS BY WHITE FOLKS or actions CENTRALLY FOCUSED ON BLACK FOLKS?
For all of the huff and puff that you display and your supposed Black authority I find you and others to be uniquely CLUELESS when it comes to translating your ideas into workable solutions in the REAL WORLD among Black people.
It seems to me that change, whenever it does come will take place in the MOLDING OF NEW BORN BLACK BABIES. They are going to need to be indoctrinated with a new purpose. If there is 380 years of negative actions layed down preceeding their birth the people who are educating them are going to have to put some new ideas and understanding into their minds so that they can continue operating at their maximum potential yet not fall into the same trap that their ancestors have fallen.
Yet as I watch a news report about the pending financial hardship that the increase in credit card minimum payments, for example, it is clear that THOSE BLACK FOLKS WHO CHOSE TO BUY INTO THE AMERICAN CONSUMER CREDIT LIFESTYLE WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS REALITY THAT IS ZAPPING ALL OF THEIR FINANCIAL RESOURCES THAT COULD HAVE BEEN APPLIED TO CREATE WEALTH.
You appear to be all in the soup but you don't even know the flavor.
RHETORIC and misdirected RESOLVE is not going to fix this problem.
YOU NEED TO BE TALKING ABOUT WHAT BLACK FOLKS ARE WILLING TO GIVE UP TEMPORARILY IN THE CONTEXT OF AMERICAN SOCIETY SO THAT WE MIGHT RECOIL, REGROUP AND THEN RE-EMERGE.
I don't know how things will ultimately turn out for my people. I DO KNOW, however, that our young people listening to the SAMBO IGNORANCE of Young Jeezy, 50 Cent and The Game ARE NOT LAYING THE GROUNDWORK FOR REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE that is based on CONSTRUCTIVE ADVANCEMENT rather then REBELLION ABSENT AN ALTERNATIVE.
