Just thinking about some things and wondering why and how. Why are some people of color so desperate for somebody to affirm us? Why do so many of us just follow the herd and why do we need some liberal authority to tell us how to vote and who to vote for. I would like to see the day when we ask hard questions of our political leaders , such as why after all the years of the great society, welfare, urban renewal and other grandiose plans and promise to lift up the black community are we still so behind in education, entrepreneurship, and family stability. Has government handouts really helped us or hurt us ? Was this the plan from the beginning? Give them just enough to keep them out of the competition for jobs, social standing and education and then we can keep them on the plantation and under our feet. And no, I am not mad at white people.
Certainly there are the achievers in our ranks, but as a whole are we living up to our potential ? Why can immigrants come into our communities and open up businesess and we may not own one store for miles around. When I was a child you could find black owned grocery stores, gas stations, and on and on in walking distance from our home. All gone now. Now, I am not mad at anyone who has a business in the black community but we should own some of them.
They tell us what is good for us and how we need them to make sure we get something from the government. Look around, how's that working out for us so far? How can we cast off the chains of dependency and rise up and take possession of our own destinies?
Oh and can we stop reducing our numbers by killing our kids before they even get here? We need our children. By the way, the mother of the American abortion movement was a racist who thought that having less poor and black people was a good thing for America. Do your research friends. It is way past time to move from the plantation. WE be free now. Or are we? Just sitting here thinking about some things and wondering why and how.
