    While many are made to believe there are no good things in the world. They are being mislead. When they said ...if you want to blind the Negro Race, put the information in a book. It was written when we were not allowed to read. Then the Laws, Jim Crow and Klan came along. Because the word was out. We could read and comprehend.

    What is needed today is, for the false thoughts and portals that were established to be torn down immediately on an individual basis.

    The one that has Blacks hating the government. In many ways everything we need is there, available and for the taking. It is structured so it has to gotten by means that many Blacks either don't know about or care to participate in.

    The CASH is there. Millions... established to help us build centers of education, learning and create jobs and receive incomes from the grants. We don't play the game, so we don't get to play. Our churches can teach us how to get the cash.. they have a status of non-profit. With them showing us how to write a proposal, and funneling the grants thru the Black churches. We can Rise... NOW! Today !!

    No Lie..

    The millions are here. In grant form. With deadlines. Must be a non-profit ( a church is ) or community organization is is easy to establish without a lot of red tape. Build computer training centers, help women and children grants, help the incarcerated grants, help veterans grants or get a custom one you prefer searched out and work it.

    Yale.. some will exclaim, I don't want anything from whitey.
    Well it is your tax dollars. Not whiteys.. yours.
    The government must do what they say they will. What they do is hide the way to receive what they must do for American citizens. Whites, Hispanics and Others play. Are you a PLAYA!

    Any authors out there?
    Know anyone that wrote a book, that quality's?
