You know my sista that is a statement that I've said over and over that unfortunately for me...it is an automatic thought. But! I stopped saying it cuz I didn't want to be a broken record and most importantly it will NOT change that fact. I have finally accepted it i.e. that black people are NOT passionate enough about HELPING each other as other cultures are. It's like burying your loved one...you just have do your OWN thing. And pray that maybe a ripple effect will emerge. I will say it was the HARDEST thing that I ever had to do,,,and that is ACCEPT what I cannot change, And understand that change come from within. All these wealthy blacks all over the world who have the ability to eradicate this problem. The price of one designer's dress can start the process. But! The question continues: Will black people EVER come to their OWN aid? I can no longer attempt to reply with the same answer. Cuz it breaks my heart to do so. But!
