Can AAs Afford “Me First” Atttitude? If AAs continue going downhill, we won’t be able to get back up the hill. Duh!! I’m sure we know that. Most AAs I meet complain, just as we do on here, about the sad state of things, but very few would be willing to give up the “Me First” selfish attitude. Most of us want what we want when and how we want it and we just keep blaming others for our downhill slide. Obviously, we have to do something radically different if we are to remain intact as a group. So I’m asking what RADICAL changes in your life or lifestyle are you willing to make in order for us to stand tall? For Ex. Would you be willing to pool your money, energy, knowledge, time, etc. with other entrepreneurs to: Start a business? Buy land and learn how to farm? Buy a building and live in with people you haven’t known that long? Would you be willing to move to another part of the country if you could hook up with other progressive Black people who were doing one of the above? Go into therapy if your “issues” are keeping you stuck in a rut. Marry a man or woman you didn’t love if it meant you could have a better life and lifestyle for you and your children? Or what else would you be willing to do to start us moving up the hill?
