  I agree with you in your entire commentary[and for those whitefolks "spying"...here's a known secret...there are many of your children fitting the SAME description and suffering from the angsts of drugs, dropping outta high school, being unemployment/unskilled...pretending to be a tough hoodrat as well...so don't smurk]. 

 

I do have a serious problem with CBC and other black politicans position...since and before we had a black president.  Me personally, I am appauled at their current behavior.  Cuz from where I stand...and I'm speaking again personally....every TIME I ask politicans in the district I hold many programs to fork over some donation money [outta their petty cash]....some of them don't even RESPOND!!!  And then when they are up for election....strangely I get election notifications in the mail....to vote for them that is or donate some money.  WTF?!  But But But!  You wouldn't even consider giving me a thin dime....now you want my time...to vote for WHO?  Not you.  And that's where the cancer begins.  Right there in our community with powerful folks with a gift of gap that move mountains...but won't and don't in the neighborhoods they represent...unless of course there is a public beating....or some other grand slamming public outcry/issue that will ensure future votes...you will see them then and only then.  I know I have. 

 

What we NEED is town meetings in our local neighborhoods with citizens, honest politicans, concern parents, teachers-everybody!  We need to have them REGULARLY.  And we need to have them where they [town meetings] are public-friendly with no hidden agendas.  And talk about the issues with schools, crefews[I had them when I was a kid], jobs,and holding parents/adolescents with personal responsibility to destructive/bad behavior....the whole nine yards.  We need to start there.  And those town meetings can evolve into awareness and power from the ground up causing the social cancer affecting our people to be eradicated.  But!  You can't just zap it out in one gathering.  Oh....no no no.  This is a process that begins in the home evolving into the community and eventually society. It can happen.  We just gotta want it bad enough....but!  I'm just sayin
