most animals bred in captivity can not be returned to the wild. many animals bred in the wild can not be returned once captured. they will not survive. the american negro has been bred in captivity for a very long time. (my folks are from Virginia, we were bred, literally) legal segregation ended about 40 years ago. defacto racism continues to this day. black people have been seriously injured by white people. this is no joke. when you are seriously injured it will take some time to heal. some wounds will leave permanent scars. if i shoot you in the leg, you may be limping for the rest of your life. white people always play down the extent of the crime. this is natural, they don't want to pay the price. they have enlisted certain nergros to help them in this denial. these negros say, "let the white man off the hook, hate your self and your people". "don't blame the white man". having lived under active segregation, i say, never forget! if we need to hate, lets never forget where that hatred should be directed. i have been through a lot of psychotherapy in my time. i suffer from depression. one of the things i learned is that if you must make the choice, homicide is better than suicide. one of the things i learned is that you need to focus your righteous anger on the correct object of that anger. if you internalize it, it can kill you. if you focus it on the wrong object, it can cause you to kill the wrong one. meanwhile, the devil giggles. another thing i learned is that if you have been dysfunctional for many years, you can't go to therapy and get "fixed" in two sessions. it can take a long time and a lot of hard work. how long has the black holocaust been? why are people going around expecting everyone to be OK so soon? do they mean that the holocaust won't really real? it was just a bad dream? if there was true damage done how can we be expected to hit the ground running in less than one full generation? don't we even get the chance to rehab? if you shoot me in the leg i'm not going to run the 100 meters. certainly not now, maybe not ever. we can't begin to heal as a people until we come out of this dream of denial. we may eat the white man's food, lay with his woman, adopt his value system, but please can we stop using his view of reality? the first step to healing is to stop beating our selves. then we can start.
