    The intent and purpose was and is to present one take on how/when/why etc. the browning (nonwhite) urbanization of some cities, was and/or is being reversed, as well as (to me) why the concept of black power also was and is bound to fail, as a given...

    I. e., however desirable of an idea, even the concept of African American nationalism was iffy at best, when we factor in the numbers of black rural migrants, way back when so many bailed from those mostly black rural communities, and/or particularly during the eras of segregation, who had merely been tenant farmers, after the end of some folks past enslavement, etc.

    So, those Black Migrations doomed the very basis of the concept of Black Power from the getgo, even after the idea got embraced by millions of our black neighbors, both during and after the Urban Rebellions, during the 20th century...

    Flashforward and now the popularity of person black genealogical research and/or annual/biannual 'black family unions' etc., reveal that some folks 'Roots' are don't go very deep, don't reflect true ties to anybody or anything important/relevant/significant, as in to help advance the idea of truly 'uplifting the race'...

    I mean to inform/not to offend...

    Again, let's do keep it real, elder bruh...

    FYI
