    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. :grouphug:

    We should not down each other for no reason...but should be self critical. It is in our best interest to know which problems are our own doings and which come from systemic and systematic racism. If the prob is caused by something we are doing wrong, it will never go away until WE correct it. Once we know what is our fault and work on it together, we will know for sure the rest is the "system" being stronger after correcting our own wrongs, we can fight that system holding down members of the dispora.

    tell me do you know of ANY websites at all where white people are self critical?
    where can i lurk to find the Asians beating them selves up?

    NONE of our problems will go away until WE correct them, that's true.
    we have to correct all the problems, those caused by us and those not caused by us also.

    the first one I'd like to correct is the "******* ain't ****" vibe that so readily slips from our lips.

    Yeah, the trend of trying to knock down any black person who "has it better" is a bad one. Jelousy is a sickness that is hurting the community.

    As for whites and others being self critical,,,I could care less if they do or not. I only care what we do. Arrogance is the downfall of any community and we must be humble enuff to know when we have screwed up. Just becuase we do that does NOT mean our main focus is not protecting ourself from others....we gotta build our self up to be strong. Those problems that we cause and dont solve are our weak points and the system has much experience exploiting our weak points to keep us down.

    If we clean up our own back yard first....we will have all the time in the world to blow up theirs, while protecting ours from them.
