This government doesn't care about us LOVING them. What's happening isn't even about emotion. It is and always has been about power and greed.
Ohhhhh Sister Queenie ... TEACH ME !! ...
You know you are speaking to me! ... lol ... and in all seriousness, if i'm this way, no doubt there are others of us just like me! They play that "love / emotion" card ... "They were persons who, for whatever reason, came to view their home country as the enemy" ... using the word "home," focusing my mind's eye there, because home to me, is love ... and i immediately relate it to love ... i called it love ... and then began addressing why i can't love them ... when it is not about love at all !!! ... whew!
Thank you Sister Queenie ... ... i'm learning!
NNQueen said:They are bound to insure some level of blind obedience from us. Can we be categorized as terrorists? What's the difference between a terrorist and a revolutionary? I guess the answer to that question has never really mattered to these oppressors and never will. No one but us cares what we do as long as whatever it is, is never contrary or in opposition to the oppressors mission nor will we be allowed to be a threat to their control.
Sister ... you are sound'n mighty revolutionary in da 'bove paragraph ... lol ... hahahaha ... under da circumstanceseseses ... you might wanna tone it down some ... I LOVE YOUUUUUUUUUUU ... ... i was gonna ask a few questions 'bout whatcha wrote ... but neva mine now ...
You know though Sister Queenie ... this makes me think of something we were discussing in voice chat recently, i'm sure as a direct result of this new racial profiling opportunity created ... well ... we were talking about how we should have "Bail Funds." I mentioned in chat how one of our Dear Beloved Brothers has this for him and the Brothers he works with. I surely hope i'm not referring to the name in error, but yall get the jist. I was so surprised and kinda taken aback ... in an awe-inspiring way ... when i heard him mention it. I don't believe we've ever discussed it beyond him saying it in passing ... but i was moved! I'm so proud of him! I don't want to post his name because this may not be something he wants everyone to know. If he reads this and decides to share, that would be great.
At any rate ... i think we need one of those too !!!
Better yet ... can we create our own bail bond company? Do we have any bail bond Sister or Brothers in that business? What's it take to do?

Black people need to give serious thought to thinking differently about this situation we find ourselves in because it's going to take more than a notion to change it.
I agree Sister. I think our first course of action, must be to heal first one's self ... then our people ... one person at a time.
Thanks for sharing, it's always a pleasure to read you!
