    I WAS TAUGHT IN THREE STEPS....LEARN , MATURE , GAIN WISDOM...

    AND WITHOUT LEARNING , MATURITY & WISDOM , HOW CAN ONE GROW ??

    FOR A LONG TIME I HAVE BELIEVED THAT WE AS BLACK PEOPLE HAVE YET TO PROPERLY MATURE IN OUR COSMETIC LIMITED FREEDOM......

    I HAVE ALSO BELIEVED THAT REVOLUTION HAS BEEN BANGING AT OUR DOOR FOR MANY MANY YEARS.....( and the hurricane Katrina aftermath was a wake-up call )

    THE WAY I SEE IT....REGARDLESS OF HOW WE ATTAIN OUR REAL FREEDOM , WE STILL HAVE TO BE WILLING TO LEARN , MATURE , & GAIN SOME WISDOM...

    ALL OF OUR IMPORTANT LEADERS THAT MADE HUGE DIFFERENCES....HAVE BEEN KILLED , INCARCERATED , & SILENCED....

    WE NOW HAVE ONE OF OUR OWN AS PRESIDENT . AND HE IS MARRIED TO A TRUE HERO IN MY OPINION....

    BUT....ALL I SEE HAPPENING HERE IS THE SAME THING THAT HAPPENED WHEN OUR BLACK POWER MOVEMENT GOT MIXED UP HEAVILY WITH THE PEACE/FREE LOVE MOVEMENT OF THE 60'S.....ANOTHER STIFLE IN OUR MATURITY....

    I SAY THIS BECAUSE I FEEL THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH BLACK WE PUT IN THE WHITE HOUSE , THE ESTABLISHMENT ITSELF WILL CONTINUE TO REIGN...

    SO , ARE WE MATURE ENOUGH YET TO MAKE ANY SERIOUS MOVES ?

    Great post WARRIOR, and to the question, I say yes and here is why. We are grass root operations now as a people, which means where ever we are we should be starting fires. Specifically, the home fires are burning right here and right now at Destee.com, and spreading, rapidly.

    I cannot speak for other operations, and shouldn't even try, but here is what I know, starting now and here, we can make a difference, in fact, a huge global difference, that is what I know.

    In addition, all fires begin very small, at least most do, and my brother friend, you are on fire...welcome home because you are WARRIOR...and Home is where ever you move to, you will still be able to be here with us, thats powerful.

    no,why...because we TALK TO MUCH,now what am i talking about-the INTERNET what esle,how gar do you think the[underground railroad]would have gotten if harriet tubman advertised in the newspapers of her day?if you want a serious grassroots movement then you do it by word of mouth and even then you have to be careful,now this forum is beautiful and the truth is spoken but to have a serious move made...keep it offline.

    oldiesman,

    Great points oldiesman, Harriet certainly couldn’t have advertised her actions expecting any degree of success, for real. Since we are no longer under that exact same kind of slavery now as then, can total secrecy still be the order of the day?

    Keita,

    If I am anything, it is consistent, lol@ Keitabut when night falls....when night falls....ah! So true brother, so true. However, in a recent post concerning Africom, it looked as though, or at least, I adopted your road to a solution:

    http://destee.com/forums/showpost.php?p=588006&postcount=19

    Over here dealing with Africom, I detect an entirely different approach than the above, please explain.
