  This is a GREAT picture my sista.  Cuz veiwing it does two things.  One:  Onebring attention to the fact that SLAVERY is in our history....but!  Slavery is in the history of other cultures as well...we are JUST the latest slaves i.e. captured against our will human beings in the last few thousands years.  And two:  slavery is the STATE of mind and will continue to be the state of behavior as long as we believe subconssciously we were NOTHING else.  So I think this picture is very poignant and upbeat in appearance enough for those to just take a looky and reflect.  But!

This is so true and also what the problem is in the first place.

 

I just do not know what it is going to take for Black people to wake up, to stop living on D'Nile about the true position the Black race is in, not only in America, but worldwide.  When is the Black race going to wake up and realize that Black people are merely just being "tolerated" in any society, culture, group or race, and eventually on the entire planet? 

 

I don't know either, Sis!  But ... MAYBE when that happens is when Black people WILL REALIZE .... that, united, we produce the economy of the 16th largest country in the world!!  That UNITED, we could take care of everything we need to live independently, safely, self-governed and unaided ....  of the White oppression that continues to stifle and suffocate us as a people!!

 

I'm hoping that whenever that WAKE UP does happen ...  is when Blackfolks will realize that we don't NEED White people ... even living in their America ... under their "American" rules and laws!!  Their "game" is designed to "win" .... MONEY.  But the rules don't EXCLUDE us as much as we EXCLUDE OURSELVES!!  

 

To pool our OWN money, talents, academics, and culture .... using their methods for success ... could make us even MORE successful and advanced than they are!!    Considering that they have no problem eating their young .... whereas we would be more inclined to cultivate ours ... which is really just the natural order of our (and their) natures!

Ignorant.

 

How about instead of buying up land only to turn around and sell it away, maybe SIT on the damn land. Develop it, market it and LEASE it to the movie industry.

Wow...long time no hear from.....

 

The NOI's economic blueprint is based on the productive value of land and not making money off of rents in perpetuity (that raises more problems and issue in and of it self).  THLF's overall point (which is his focus) is that whatever development that takes place, must take place in ways that develop and benefit the people.

The NOI doesn't have an economic blueprint. Someone please tell me where this economic blueprint got the city of Detroit in the first place? NOWHERE.

 

Black euntrepreneurs need to buy up as much land as they can. Hollywood has been trying to make a deal with Detroit for years. They need studio space--start from there.

Not exactly.

Louis Schimmel, emergency manager of Pontiac, Michigan screwed that deal up. He and a few other wet blankets were against backing incentives to Hollywood with state pension funds. Just to add insult to injury, Hollywood was planning on shooting over 40 films there, one of which being IRON-MAN, which took in over 200 million overseas BEFORE debuting in the U.S., until Schimmel came on the scene, hosed everything down and ran off investors. Now, if news of an economic opportunity of this scale has been accessible to the general populus for years, then how the hell is it that the almighty NOI didn't step in and provide some spotlight on the issue? Yeah, that's what I thought. The NOI is garbage--a front. They've lost relevence decades ago, which is why I don't want to hear a damn thing from Louis Decepticon.
