    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......Based on this, you seem to have a much better understanding, which precludes me from further explaining, thanks...other than not naming the narrow port, strait of hormuz, all else is on point:

    The only importance and relevant things are for us to air our comments/criticisms/concerns/etc. about what Obama needs and should promise to do for our relations, i . e., for our votes, so he will get a second term in office...

    Most of our relations live in big cities, and no true plan to bail us out Obama has revealed yet...

    SMH...

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......Its easy to sense the deep love you have for our people, chuck. But Mr. Obama cannot save us from ourselves, even with an apparent 2nd term in office. What happens to us after eight(8) years with President Obama? We go back to square 1, watching white folk running the show.

    Naw, if we are to improve our situation, Mr. Obama, alone, isn't responsible for that. Its entirely up to us to shed the self-hate, envy, disgust, etc...we harbor against ourselves.

    Peace In,

    Brother Jahari Kavi ... i agree with you ... we are all under the umbrella ... and if pointing out who's here is all we can do, we're in trouble.

    I propose that there is more that we can do ... we can empathize with the next Brother or Sister under the umbrella.

    Who knows better than a Black Man, what another Black Man must go thru ... ?? ... yet it's often that very one that attacks his own first.

    We don't have to tear each other down, because they are under the same umbrella, or in the same boat, with us.

    It's suicidal behavior in my opinion ... just imagine ... all of us in a boat, the same boat, but we're fighting each other in the boat.

    It's not gonna be long before the whole boat goes down, from the fighting we're doing on the boat ... everyone will perish.

    They aint gave us the strongest boat to be in, the most sea-worthy in their fleet ... nope ... we're all in a dingy, fighting each other.

    I say let's stop all fighting of each other ... all diminishing of each other ... all tearing down of each other ... just stop it.

    Get our minds together, remember for one to survive on this dingy, we've all got to work together, row in the same direction, etc.

    But we've been conditioned to fight the ones that are under the umbrella with us, on the boat, or whatever analogy fits.

    I think we can overcome this ... in spite of the fact that we can't point to any great works from any of us ... i believe we can do it.

    We must first stop rocking our own boat ... throwing our own help overboard ... persecuting each other for being what we all are.

    I don't care who the Black Man or Woman is ... if they are in the same boat as me ... i'm standing in their defense.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Good comeback...

    And seeing your pic makes it clear nobody dares to waste your time etc.

    But I would appreciate more feedback as regards what else you've passed along to me...

    Thanks in advance...

    FYI...
