    destee family this was sent to me today....
    it needed to be passed on and so:

    For those of you who heard it, this is the article Dee Lee was reading this
    morning on a New York radio station. For those of you who didn't hear it,
    this is very deep. This is a heavy piece and a Caucasian wrote it .

    THEY ARE STILL OUR SLAVES We can continue to reap profits from the Blacks
    without the effort of physical slavery Look at the current methods of
    containment that they use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.

    Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once said,
    "The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in a book."
    We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the opportunity to read
    any book on any subject through the efforts of their fight for freedom, yet
    they refuse to read. There are numerous books readily available at Borders,
    Barnes & Noble, and, not to mention their own Black Bookstores
    that provide solid blueprints to reach economic equality (which should have
    been their fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all.

    GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the abolition
    of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their disposal. Last year
    they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas, out of their 450 billion
    dollars in total yearly income (2.22%).

    Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture we
    care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it. Being
    primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed. They
    continually want more, with little thought for saving or investing.

    They would rather buy some new sneaker than invest in starting a business.
    Some even neglect their children to have the latest Tommy or FUBU, And they
    still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house gives them "Status" or
    that they have achieved their Dream.

    They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty
    because their greed holds them back from collectively making better

    With the help of BET, and the rest of their black media that often
    broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue to see
    huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike. (Tommy Hilfiger has even jeered
    them, saying he doesn't want their money, and look at how the fools spend
    more with him than ever before!). They'll continue to show off to each other
    while we build solid communities with the profits from our businesses that
    we market to them.

    SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the major
    ways we can continue to contain them. One of their own, Dubois said that
    there was an innate division in their culture. A "Talented Tenth" he called
    it. He was correct in his deduction that there are segments of their culture
    that has achieved some "form" of success. However, that segment missed the
    fullness of his work.
    They didn't read that the "Talented Tenth" was then responsible to aid The
    Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life. Instead, that
    segment h as created another class, a Buppie class that looks down on their
    people or aids them in a condescending manner. They will never achieve what
    we have. Their selfishness does not allow them to be able to work together
    on any project or endeavor of substance. When they do get together, their
    selfishness lets their egos get in the way of their goal Their so-called
    help organizations seem to only want to promote their name without making
    any real change in their community.

    They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels, and
    talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best speakers,
    not to the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness? They
    steadfastly refuse to see that TOGETHER EACH ACHIEVES MORE (TEAM)

    They do not understand that they are no better than each other because of
    what they own, as a matter of fact, most of those Buppies are but one or two
    pay checks away from poverty. All of which is under the control of our pens
    in our offices and our rooms.

    Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to read,
    continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are "helping"
    their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little other than
    hold lavish conventions in our hotels. By the way, don't worry about any of
    them reading this letter, remember, 'THEY DON'T READ!!!!
