I think this attitude really hurts us culturally because we are not aggressive and focused enough to have and maintain our own instead, we sit around and wait on God. And that attitude has become a major part of our culture, church goer or not. And what compounds it, Black churches encourages it and sets an example of doing nothing that is meaningful that creates economic well being of the communities they serve, oops they prey.
Churches could be game changers but they are about conforming and serving the establishment, sad to say.
I think church have quelled Black indignation that should be the reason for us to pull together and do something together as a people that lead to material and economic upliftment.
Economically we are orientated outward and because of that, we are not able to validate ourselves inward.
