i've talked to a few black people who seem down at heart. i say, don't let it get you down so much. we have all seen fighters get knocked on their butts and still get up off the canvas and win that fight. when i used to play ball we didn't quit if the other team got a lead. we tried to come back on them. you do not quit until the bell rings. one thing i have learned in my long life is that things can change in ways that you would never anticipate. it seems to be going one way now but it can very well be going the other way tomorrow. ain't none of this mess permanent. don't get discouraged brothers and sisters.
