Are black people importing the cocaine from Central America? Do we have the airplanes and infrastructure to create and smuggle the drugs here?
IMO it's not a coincidence that society is structured to subjugate some and to prop up others. Perhaps in this instance it is less conspiracy, and more that that's just the way society has been structured to serve some - at the expense of others.
I got your joke, but wanted to use your post as an opportunity to make the point - in anticipation of others seriously taking that position!
MBM, obviously you have been listening to Malcolm X on this topic. I feel as if this is something that black people have been consistently warned about and this is why Malcolm X was really killed. I also believe that his ties to various revolutionaries around the world and his plans to have black soldiers from Vietnam train freedom fighter armies in Africa was another motivation to have him knocked off. Were you aware that up to 75% of the Special Forces troops early in Vietnam were black? He definitely had the know how and black frustration to be able to pull this off.
Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the objectives. As long as we agree on objectives, we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods, or tactics, or strategy. We have to keep in mind at all times that we are not fighting for separation. We are fighting for recognition as free humans in this society
Malcolm X, 1965
