Newsflash! Ordinary black children ARE not in the spotlight. Oh....no. They are too busy preparing for their future and STAYING outta trouble. These are our silent leaders who do not NEED to be in the center of attention to be deemed valuable...or NORMAL!!!!! I gotta better QUESTION. Where are the ordinary white kids? Not the trailer park ones focusing on getting pregnant at 16. Or the ones working on screwing the most men on youtube in American history. Or the ones joining the youth...

Wow! I was compelled a few months ago...maybe closer to 11 months to implement a "positive black people" task force in my community as a way to move forward into another venue to help our children acquire self-sufficiency without wearing myself out and by utilizing a "dream team approach." Its easier said than done. However, I am impressed by those positive black folks coming out of the wood works to participate in shifting the fate of our youth.

Something else. African cultures, you know, don't always value their own cultures. And if they do, they're torn or conflicted by the allure of materialism, mostly from Western imagery, an empty hallucination. But people are so poor too. Then there's extreme Islam that thinks it is the antidote to materialism. But their conditioning and insane actions are caught up in fatal error and human weakness too. This is how I ended up with my particular conclusions: All people's interpretations are...

Men, when you sit down, close your legs. No more "manspreading". If a woman was "womanspreading"; kinda nasty, I guess. If the fellas have their legs all spread across the seat, someone might get a glance of their lumpety dumpeties outline, if they're so lucky to have one. Keep dem legs closed. What's good for the women is good for the men. What's good for the goose, is good for the gander.
