Malcolm X spoke out and focused his negativity against the oligarchy, and Dr King also focused his righteous indignation against global White Supremacy, but regading the community they worked tirelessly day and night to find ways to provide us with the benefits, and joys, we and our families enjoy today. Now that COINTELPRO had removed Afrocentricity fom every venue of Black media, from theater, movies, dance, literature, television, radio, hip hop, jazz, and pop music, a vaccuun has occured in regads to any apreciation or focus on Black nationalism. The common phrases Nation Time, and Do forSelf have been replaced by "N word please!" and "Nuckka" and the B word and the term Ho Like the Godfather said, how have we come so far? How have we lost focus? Here in NYC there has been practicaly no violence in the community, no gang wars, and a general sense of peace love and harmony. The Million Man and Million Woman Marches had something to do with it, the Blackout that forced those who were at each others throats, to look out for each others backs, the election of a chief of staff that looks like us, but all in all a kind of evolving out of the hatred and animosty mentality that builds nothing and only destroys. One can go from Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and yes even the Black areas of Staten Island anytime day or night without being harassed, stalked, insulted or set upon by crips or bloods, in fact crips and bloods have had a truce here for the past few years and no longer wear colors but gret members by unique (Masonic) hand signs. But what is going on in the other areas of this Wilderness? What is going on in the other 49 states were brothers cannot chat in harmony to build the Black community or help members in need without animosty or grudges.? How have some of our sisters felt a need to focus on fueling flame wars on a daily basis , rather then using their goddess energy to heal and nurture a community that is in need pof great repair. Long before the Bible was even a word in any language there were more then likely a thousand African proverbs, tens of thousands of years old stateing that, When you share the Good of your heart , you not only heal yourself but you heal the village and honor the ancestors but whwn you hide the Good of your heart and entertain only hostilty and disharmony on a daily basis, then one not only harms oneself, but one does harm to the entire community, and great displeasure, sorrow and anguish to the ancestors. Look at the economy! Look at the education system! Look at what is happening to our youth Look at what is planned for our elderly if we are not vigilent? And look at the increase in poverty, homelssness, and joblessness! At this time do we as a people realy have time to be negative or hold grudges?
