    As the economy quietly declines, schools close, wars increase, families continue to fall apart or battle, from one city to the next from one state to the next, from one Carribbean nation to the next and from one African nation to the next.

    Why is a conversation regarding the common good such a rare thing,

    particularly at this very auspicious time in our history?

    I honestly think we are solution oriented when working together collectively
    for the bigger picture

    Reaching a solution to the many why's will take some brainstorming
    working facts and reality to our break downs

    The rare things for the common good will always bring forth a conversation
    talked about / displayed and so forth this where we as brothers come into
    a united unity for the sake of our history

    I can't say why and who , no more then what if , guess we have to dig deeper
    to see what is so suspicious and understand why ........

    If I knew and understood more about your educational background etc.:

    I could be in a better position to answer your question...

    I. e., my guess is you have a better formal education than most of us, and some things you just can't expect from those who weren't/aren't as lucky...

    'Detroit Red' (Malcolm X) had to make a choice...

    So did Huey Newton...

    Etc.

    I. e., be down with the crew etc., continue to prey on their own people, or be up(lifting), i. e., be a part of the problem--even indirectly--by chance, or be a part of the solution--by choice!

    It's all about what's in your heart--what your minds reflect--your calls--your choices--how you have to remember that your actions will result in certain consequences etc.

    You will be a reflection of allowing others to determine your fates or determine your own...

    Good luck!

    Take care...

    Peace...
