¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

This has been a hard piece to write, and it may be a hard one to read. I’ve lamented over touching this subject for months decided that I will know this should be shown to world. Some may see what I write as wrong and/or judgmental, but one way or the other, I'm only writing what is SO plainly evident, despite the declarations to the contrary. I’ve seen AND heard more than enough of how racism in America is everyone else fault EXCEPT black folks. Most black persons in America have this FALSE righteousness and they allow it to hold them back! They make excuse after excuse as to why they can’t live a life that’s better than sub par (and few have a point), but I feel they need to let go the things that are taking them NOWHERE and find a way to bridge the racial gap that exists. 

I’m hoping that someone can find a way to usher in a new era of positive race consciousness by showing ALL on this planet that developing a healthy worldview is the ONLY way we can truly function as human beings. Developing a healthy worldview is a prerequisite to personal, spiritual and global development. Our worldview cannot start from AND stall @ the feet of our ancestors. There needs to be a reality check so as a people we can realize our place in time. This reality requires total understanding on the objective level as well as on the subjective level of our existence.
The work of consciously developing ourselves is about realizing the truth, and to realize truth people must be willing to investigate and share facts. The ongoing legacy of colonialism has brought destruction and ongoing distress to both the colonizer and the colonized. Every colonized people, every people in whose soul an inferiority complex has been created by the destruction of their memory, adopts the language and values of the colonizing nations. To quote Frantz Fanon, "The colonized is elevated above the jungle status in proportion to his adoption of the colonial country's cultural standards. The colonized people perceive themselves superior as they renounce their blackness. "They are used to convey their master's orders to their fellowmen, and for this they enjoy a superficial position of honor.

When I speak of black folks in America it is NOT that they are unworthy of live, it is just to stimulate latent memories, towards a resurgence of self-confidence, which is greatly lacking among them. A lot of black people dream of a form of salvation that consists of things read in fairytales, when they MUST strive to ensure that their children are not held hostage by that form of self-debasing mentality.


  1. Very well said. There's a lot of people - white AND black - who want to maintain things just as they are. Like soldiers in a never-ending war - they don't want the war to end, because their existence will then have no meaning.

  2. Being that I'm a Black American residing in the United States I can identify with the complaints and actions registered by other Black men and women.

    Life for Blacks in the United States of America can be vey challenging and yes there are some things that are not readily available to us without a struggle, but over all life is good.

    Taught as a young child,I was taught I could do and be anything I wanted to with hard work, education and by abiding by the law. Yes I have complaints to register just like the next Black man or woman.

    We face obstacles and challegnes, mistreated and often sterotyped. Let no man put asunder. Life for Blacks is much different than that of other races in the United States of America. We have to let go of some of the shyte we hold on to, and other races must let go of their hateful ways.

  3. I agree. I too get tired of hearing the complaints. I am tired of it being a mentality of setbacks instead of trying to move ahead progressively.

    Certainly there are prejudice and discrimination that takes place but to use it as an excuse for what seems like an entire life of 'injustice' is just overdone.
