I listen to this internet radio show based in Los Angeles and a topic made me think of something interesting. Is the black community in America so far gone that it's really not worth trying to wake them? Is the materialism and Western lifestyle so embedded in us that we are pretty much hopeless. Should more focus be on saving and developing Africa than trying to save a lot of people that really don't want to be saved? Think about it, even if conscious minded black folks could get a message out that would reach every African American, would it do any good? Are African Americans too caught up in Western living to even consider any other lifestyle? I always hear about the huge difference in mentality that Africans have compared to African Americans. What do you guys think? I'm sure we all know people that seem to love the way things are and think anything else is stupid. Some people seem to think "leaving the lost ones behind" would be a better approach, instead of wasting time and money trying to show them the alternative.
