    I bring this up because it seems and sounds that our role models continue to be celebrities and professional sports players...

    Are we not presuming/assuming too much on the basis of social custom and/or racial mythology?

    :thinking:

    So many blacks continue to need and want white folk to cosign whatever they claim or say which contradicts that...

    We were and are the role models for the world's people of color...

    It's never been easy, for any of us to get our minds around that, and what it obviously implies...

    Whites in general consider no or few people of color their equals...

    I. e., their bigotry/racism/ad naseum, did and does blind them...

    They did and do expect better than that, from even Obama, folks!

    It's like that: And that's the way it is...

    FYI

    The USA is the last remaining true white world power...

    Even in the case of Obama to be allowed to be its front man, him being on the world stage is a big concession...

    As is their custom, all of us are judged in relation to him, like it or not...

    Yes, they're are the world's worst hypocrites, but what else is new?!?

    FYI

    It is their worldviews etc. which reflect self promoting stereotypes...

    It should not be ours too...

    We were and are more a part of worldwide humanity than they choose to be...

    Viewing ourselves in reaction or reflection to this nation's white folk, exclusively and solely, reflects our shallow and short sided world viewpoints etc.

    FYI

    It is long overdue to let go on old conceptions/leading to wrong headed conclusions/making us new losers...

    As a particular black music pop icon once said:

    "Free your minds"

    And what follows, posters?

    "The kingdom of Heaven IS within!"

    Believe that too!

    Word: Truth...

    FYI
