    Black power and reality in the 21st Century
    by Monroe Anderson

    I’ve been getting this viral email from white friends, black friends, even one of my Indian
    friends. It’s one of these truths that’s been hiding in plain site: Black is In!
    I’m old enough to remember the ’60s when we were last in. It turned out to be short and sweet.
    By the 1970s, there was talk of our being treated with benign neglect.
    In the 1980s, under the Reagan regime, it was no longer benign. And then it got worse.
    But I digress. Reportedly, we’re the new "it" ethnic group.To make it more palatable to the
    ignorance-is-bliss crowd, the truth is often packaged as a joke.
    The fact that Black People are now the new black is no exception. Check it out.

    Unfortunately, it's nothing new.

    Whites get tans to be darker like us.

    White women get collagen injections to have lips like us.
    (Angelina Jolie is just their poster child)

    They want hair like us. (Ever seen a White person with dreads?!) wow.

    Remember Bo Derek in the movie "10" and suddenly Corn-rows were a "new" hairstyle craze for White women?

    The list goes on....

    Whenever "Black" has been "in," White people jump on the bandwagon or they try to appropriate what has always been Black for themselves and call it theirs.

    Something tells me that the "new" black will be treated the same as the "old".

    Another great post oldsoul,


    Most definitely, and I agree with most of the posters here, in addition, the end times of the Gentiles is approaching.

    OMG.. is that barrack and the po po....

    tried to check it out in detail but i can't open it...

    ignorant black is what's in...

    i mean hiphop is a 10 billion dollar industry being used to finance war within the mainstream...

    they've always wanted to be like us as it is mostly suburban whites that buy garbage music.....

    that's more money then what some small contries have....

    i don't think it's a big deal when they imitate us... i think it's a big problem when we try to imitate them.....

    Nice Wind

    Let me expalin the term Nice Wind!
    If I am standing with you. And having a conversation. Then what you are saying sounds good. To my ears, to my enjoyment of hearing you speak, or it is down right GOOD NEWS! So thanks oldsoul for the thread!


    Everything you said is real.

    But oldsoul.. haven't we always been in?

    I have never felt personally.
    That we as a race were ever inferior.
    Never entered my mind, but the thought did cross.

    It Didn't get entertainment from me.

    CHANGE.. is what you see.
    Because this window of opportunity was slipping fast.
    To be in again.





    If you take the train, all aboard settled in and enjoying everything
    that is about to happen.
    When you get there.
    As you get there and stuff.
    And find you don't have a ticket to continue.

    Wouldn't that be a tragic situation
    to face when you really was trying
    to get someplace?

    I only ask this because.
    Windows CLOSE. fast, slow, and mostly they don't exist to climb thru. WINDOWS OF OPPORTUNITY shut Fast.

    To be in is really good. It is the latest!
    Not like fashion, because we remember the good parts of that time period.
    The 60's as you mentioned. the 70's and 80's

    man things CHANGED when the REPUB's took the train. " Under the Reagan regime" he did as you claim and much worse to the ( US ) the BOTTOM RAIL THAT is NOW ON TOP. ( meaning we are in ) ( What we gonna do with it? )
    How we gonna spend the equity ( Positives ) of the situation? )

    FOR NOW!
    So how do the fashion keep its glow. Wash it.

    How do we sustain CONTINUOUSLY FOREVER and EVER the being IN. On top. The TOP RAIL.

    Wash yourself with a new open mind, eyes and heart to see. So the blessing that have always been hoped for
    That has always never been with out US.. you
    Can be and the life you have always wanted to build. Or the one you NEED can be constructed when theere is an IN or CHANGE in mind or MOTION felt all over the WORLD> Shaken to the CORE by the same bbeastr... Money.. money money... Greed.
    In all this turmoil.. is opportunity!
    Your BLESSING CAN BE .... Can be Recieved.. Can we get the church to sing....AMEN...bro

    Peace Brother oldsoul.. haven't chatted with ya for a period.. You been traveling or what?
