    It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences that connect us as a whole and a people, as men we have to find unity a brotherhood
    and a united we stand, we have to stop and mentally thing how short we come to the power we
    behold being divided, yes we disconnected, yes we losing the battle but not the war in a system
    that is design against us our youth men, sons and culture...

    The only way to win is become one , a voice so strong a hand so powerful a structure unbreakable
    we need our sisters, women they are our power scoop that will help mend us as men, brothers
    so are we really so divided and disconnected ??

    We first need to connect with God and His precepts.

    Without God, we have no foundation on which to build.

    while I do agree , we also have to see that we served differently due to many beliefs which is part of us
    being disconnected this where we have to see us as a people a culture with different views but find a
    common ground to unite ourselves as men against the system that is our oppressor we have to learn how
    to mix the many beliefs to a point where we can agree and how to disagree but offer a solution on the table
    we have to know our own spiritual self and understand someone else beyond being a cretic or blaming to
    mask there own spirituality.

    When our enslaved ancestors cried to the heavenly Father for their freedom, He heard them and released them from bondage.

    Odd that some of their descendants would be denouncing Him today!

    When their enslaved ancestors were being beaten, raped, abused, terrorized, tortured, and dehumanized, they prayed to their Father in heaven and He heard them, which is why we're on this website free to communicate like we do today!

    You know the first thing the slaves said when they were told they were free?

    They said something like, "Thank you Jesus!" ,"Thank you God!", or "Thank you Lord!"

    I believe in sticking with what works, so if the heavenly Father worked for them, then He should work for me!

    We have the benefit to have many things that we still yet aware how to make them work for us , yes I agree that we
    have a common place a community to come in now we have to build as a whole and not single to make a different
    in the Ameri-land of unjust, greed and hate , we have to reflect on these things with mental power and yes our almighty
    above whom so ever we served , I do agree to find GOD let him lead your faith to unity this we must strive forward
    for our children, women, communities and self.....

    That's my point brother RAPTOR I'm trying to make, this why we have to look beyond our religion factor
    to a different common ground for unity that will empower us as a people and men.

    Is this why we so disconnected ?

    In terms of a disconnect, in an of itself, I would say no.
