When we are at the place we need to be as black folks, then we can pick up that mantle of social justice and we will have the strength to carry the burden of being America's moral conscience. Until then we need to lay that mantle down and free our strengths in focus of our own people.
We cannot get to the place we need to be as Black folks without fighting social injustice. We don't have the luxury of picking these battles. All of our problems began with the hypocricy of White America... All men are created equal, except for the slaves. Because they are not people, they're property.
Are you suggesting that we lay down the mantle of fighting social injustice... and pick up the mantle of supporting social hypocricy?
