    There are those who continuously allow themselves to be misinformed and misled.. Few of us ever step up to challenge the information and the source so therefore we are at the mercy of the propaganda machine.. The world is gearing up for a major overhaul and if we aren't careful we as African/Black folks we'll be in a world of hurt...This article written by a white man Max Keller activist, is a wake-up call for all people... and if we as the dark skinned folks on this planet don't get our s--t together soon, our state of existence will be an extremely perilous one..If we think that the atmosphere is rife with racial tension, hostility (directed towards us) and hardships now, we are definitely in for a rude awakening.. We'd better get up off of our behinds and get busy with educating ourselves and reshaping the way we think and act in order to build a structure of power and relevance. The white world is a construct of universal rule and a self preservation mentality and they will use whatever means necessary to maintain it... We need to adopt that same mentality or before you know it we'll be confronted with more than just a stark reality folks...

    I just wished more black folks watched the Matrix and took those films as messages.

    This particular clip I think is targeted to black men.

    On the keeping (for)
    real side, I merely consider the aforementioned film light entertainment:

    And please do present more reliable sources to back up your opinions!

    Fair enough chuck, I wish I had the fire that I had back then, but an old mentor named Tony Brown convinced me a while back that the facts are out there. Those who are looking will find them, and they are not many. So I have to stick with light entertainment and leave the dissertations for those who have the energy to write them.

    Also as it applies to my real life experiences with African-Americans in general:

    Most are reflections of their own life choices etc!

    As a man thinketh so is he....I completely agree. So I thinketh that at my point in life I have to post clips and sounds bytes in this era. I cannot recommend that one read the Spook Who Sat by the Door, or the Invisible Man. We learned in that fashion. Learning has changed.

    Also there's a big difference between mere indoctrination as contrasted with being truly educated bro...

    Indeed chuck. We fight that fight daily. I have to educate black people daily that Lil Wayne is not who we are, it is what remains. Black excellence to many "black" people is acting "white". It is an amazing thing this Matrix that we live in.

    You have definitely said a mouthful there brother Ausura. There's this quote that says ("We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act but a habit") If those folks want to act ignorant and uneducated, then so be it. Let's just see how far they excel in life. I'll take excellence all day long..They can call whatever they want.. I call it a poor excuse to justify not being educated!!!
