If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there. Family, where do we want to go as a collective people? I don't necessarily mean geographically, although I am not excluding it. I get the impression that most of us, myself included, have no intentions of leaving the United States for Africa or any other location. Some, however, plan or think we should plan an exodus from the United States. I think both are viable options as long as we act upon our desire. Basically, some are of the opinion that White people will never change their ways regardless of what we do or don't do. If this is the case, we are in a state of perpetual victimhood unless we make a definative change. So, are we happy with our current conditions? If not, lets articulate the things we are not willing to accept and see if we can offer some brainstorming for collective goals & solutions towards those goals. ALSO, this thread is not for bashing someone elses ideas...this is just brainstorming so as far as ideas go, no one has a monopoly on ideas and anything goes as far as possibilities that should be on the table for potential solutions. This is an attempt to build a coalition of the willing, those willing to get in the fight and become proactive towards effecting change in the areas of our collective lives that we are dissatisfied with. If we can never expect equitable treatment from White people, we certainly don't want to be perpetually dependent upon them for employment, justice in the Criminal Justice "system", or for educating us to be independent of them. So, with that in mind, lets brainstorm for ideas for how we can set and reach collective goals and solutions. What do we want for our: Geographic location? Family structure? Education system? Employment? Business and Technology? Crime reduction? Health and Health Care. Etc. etc. Most importantly, this is not about DREAMING unrealistic dreams. This is about tangible goals and practical solutions for reaching those goals. Do not use this thread to bash the ideas of others, especially if you have no ideas of your own. If you have nothing positive to bring to the table, please just observe. If you see fault with a potential solution, please present that fault in a respectful and civil manner. We cannot solve our problems through infighting. Hopefully, this can be a thought provoking exercise which produces some practical options for going to where it is we want to go. Remember: If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there.
