During my younger years with my father we really never got along, but now that I am older and have put things aside, me and him talk about different things from time to time... I was having a conversation with my father last week, about Africans and how they are always at war with each other.... and he brought up a good point... Basically he was saying how some races are blessed with certain resources... Like the Arabs have the oil, that makes them rich.... We have the biggest source of diamonds in the world... Africa as a continent, could possibly be the biggest power in the world with the money that comes from that resource... The potential for money would be astounding... and could quite possibly end all hunger.... Just think if Africa developed a network that created a way for every country in the continent to prosper we would be unstoppable... but because of our lack of unity, we have been easily divided and conquer by the Europeans. That then got me to thinking about all the tribal wars that have been going on between us since the beginnings of time... and how we used to trade and sell our own people... Then I take a look at how we are killing each other and pimping our women here in the US literally everyday... Especially here in DC, brothers get killed like its nothing.... its seems like not much have changed... Like are we natural killers or something? Could it be that it is in our programming to be violent toward each other? Thinking about it makes me sad for us for real... its like we have been this way since the beginning of time... and it possibly may never change... I like to think of myself as a person who stays open to all possibilities... Im wondering does anybody feel differently? Do you think its possible that blacks could ever find better ways to solve their problems with each other? Could we ever be a peaceful people?
