Every single day, there is something challenging us.
If it’s not what it’s being said about us, it’s direct confrontation on our culture.
We are in a state of emergency whether people want to believe that or not.
There have many days in which I envision some kind of attack, and what our response will be.
Dr. Umar Johnson, noted Clinical Psychologist and lecturer, has stated publicly that the government is creating disturbances on purpose as some kind of “test run” on the public. And why is that? To impose Martial Law on Black people. Basically, to have a reason to wipe us out. That’s always been the plan of the white establishment.
Everyone has been protesting. I saw an image yesterday of those who marched on Ferguson last year and I can only wonder what will be the follow-up. Will they implement a strategy and plan of attack to achieve their goals? And just what are they?
People are so quick to join the bandwagon, but no one ever checks to see if the brakes work before the crash.
We are a people divided. No one can agree to a separate agenda to rally around.
All of the players are out for themselves and could care less whom they use to achieve notoriety.
Black people are a mess right now and or enemy knows it. They just keep intensifying their tactics, just to see how we’ll respond, and frankly, it’s very clear that many Black people aren’t prepared for such an onslaught of attack. They know it too.
We are not a community anymore. More than any other group, Black people practice radical individualism. I got mine…you get yours. That’s the mentality, and just look at where it’s gotten us: we no longer talk to our neighbors. We don’t help our families. Everything we do has a price. And just what do Black people invest in?
Still yet, we blame white folks and white supremacy for all of our downfalls. Is it really their fault totally, or should we bear some accountability?
The basic truth here: Many of us are afraid to confront white people. And this has been a major weakness, so much so, white men have become arrogant in their disrespect towards our women and children.
Psychologically speaking, a person who is willing to be disrespected in order to be accepted, is a person who has little self-respect.
So what do we do?
We gotta close ranks. We have to stop tolerating cowards.
Everything we are is because of what we accept. And it is simply unacceptable for Black people to keep condoning the disrespect on our community and people.
I’m not afraid to fight. The images in my mind are violent. There is an immediate responsibility that needs to be charged here. If freedom means that I must sacrifice who I am in order to protect my enemy’s feelings, it won’t happen.
In the immortal words of Dr. Martin Luther King: “If peace means accepting second class citizenship, then I don’t want it. If peace means keeping my mouth shut in the midst of evil and injustice, then I don’t want it. If peace means being complacent and accepting the status quo, then I don’t want it. If peace means being passive, then I don’t want it. If peace means a willingness to be exploited and humiliated, then that’s the kind of peace that I don’t want—-DR. KING (from his speech in Louisville Kentucky , 1956)
Until the Black man, the Black woman, and the Black family is unified, there will be NO REVOLUTION!
