Hey Fambly, some of the comments made in brotha oldsoul's class this morning leave me wondering if we really understand what genocide is all about. Some of us say well sure if you can't afford children then you chouldn't have them. That sounds reasonable. That sounds like something common sense would tell you. But genocide is not about economics. Poverty is currently just the most useful tool for eliminating the greatest number of Blacks from the Earth. When we know eugenics came long before welfare how can anyone come up with a reason we should not have children (that is to say a future existence) and we just sit back and say yep you got me there. Can't argue witcha. Like this is a freaking board game and after we lose we can slap high five with the winners to show our good sportsmanship? Economics is used right now to hide the fact that eugenics and genocide is about eliminating people on the basis of their ethnice group. When terrible things happen to other people it is human nature for us to categorize those pople into a group to which we do not belong. We say well I'm not poor. I'm not uneducated so it won't happen to me. We forget this is a manufactured poverty from which we are a pink slip away. We cannot afford to categorize other Black people as "them." We have been taught to do this. We have been programed to think that if we turn our backs on other Blacks we will be rewarded but if we try to help them or identify with them we will be punished. Cast into the category of folks marked for genocide. We are already marked. Our life cannot be saved by a bunch of dead presidents.
