    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I'm amazed at how some can point out the shortcomings of another, so easily.

    I've read recently, where we've called each other names, accused each other of being less intelligent, less this, less that, more this, more that ... never speaking to your own shortcomings.

    But i challenge you all ... to stop for a minute ... and look at yourself.

    Try to measure if you can, how much of the slave master's mentality you exhibit.

    Attacking your own ... please ... just stop for a second and look.

    You are not all that you think you are, for if you were, you'd not attack your own so mercilessly.

    This thread is about YOU ... not your Brother ... not your Sister ... but YOU.

    Are you all that our people need you to be ... do you have any room for improvement ... while you point fingers at others?

    :heart:

    NO..Im not and YES there is room for improvement which is why I am constantly woring towrads higher levels of certification, higher levels of self-consciousness but I AM NOT the one to allow anyone to FALSELY accuse me of anything without a challenge.

    That is How my DAD raised me to be.

    A MAN.

    Peace!

    This thread has nothing to do with the President ... you're way off, by leaps and bounds.

    That's unfortunate.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Truth!




    Sister Destee,

    He is only being himself, sarcastic, which is the raggediness he laid on the table tonight, about himself and out of his loins.
