I agree. Not as long as we continue to back stab, kill, sabotage, disrespect, disregard, ignore and discredit each other. I don't see how. It gon take more than merely words. It's gon take a desire, will and a dedication. And a lot of black folks just ain't made of that...unless it comes with MONEY. So it will be interesting to see how this generation is going to prevail. I don't agree that it's all baby boomers fault. Grown folks gotta take responsibility for their own behavior once they KNOW. And even if they don't know, it is their responsibility to find out in order to pass the torch. Quite frankly the baby boomers did not create gangs or drugs to destroy the black community. They were the ones to fight for civil and human rights and TIRED to pass the torch on to folks like Tookie. Who of course had his own agenda as to what he and many others like him wanted to do with the black community....across this nation. Which was a sloooooooow painful burn for more than 30 years. So I agree with you my sista. We are NEVER gonna get there unless we revisit black love. And for a lot of us? We just don't KNOW what that is. But!
