Re: The Black "Progress Narrative" is Self-Defeating

Kocolicious ·
I agree that Blacks must start demanding instead of requesting. But we must also start respecting our cultures and the people in it and respect ourselves at the same time that's ONLY we can have any form of a Progress Narrative. It is only self-defeating when there's no self respect. We must there first. But!

I agree with him, too, provided that it is understood that to demand something does not necessarily have to be Verbal, that most of what we want has to be 'demanded' by our Actions [and non-Actions].

Nmaginate, good question. I would have to say that we have become so comfortable in American life and what self-defense methods we did try to use were always met with maximum resistance. On the first point about being comfortable in American life I guarantee that there is always one of us in the bunch who will say that they are so happy to be in America instead of in Africa. We have gotten comfortable with our instant gratification luxuries. We don't want to rock the boat too much any more.

Owning a studio isn't the only issue. The issue is in entertainment is distribution. You can own whatever you like, if the distribution channels are locked up between 3 or 4 companies, that's a bigger battle than most people know. It actually goes to the larger issue of media ownership. 5 companies own >90% of the media outlets.
