Did it achieve it's purpose? Look beyond RACE then because we are not even in the one being run. Will it take a Caucasian individual to come out and say.. basically African Americans are having a problem with integration, because they cant keep up? Given a level or in some cases almost level field... they just can't compete? What is the matter. I see those who complain about Integration. There is no reason to not take advantage of this time in our lives to be all one can be. Achieving all one can and doing more than those before has ever done and accomplished. All the while I see stagnation. No change, no growth. Not growing to any potential. Integration has given us is an opportunity to compete. Ancestors before and recent past like...Garvey, Malcolm, Martin did all they could to show us how to apply our GOD given talents. If you separate now where are you going... we haven't built any independent establishments yet. Haven't learned yet to get along or be strong especially supportive. If you had a male around you growing up you learned something, you were told something, or you should have garnered something. You learned something. Learn to assimilate the good judgement of those surrounding you, and those in your family that have their thinking caps on, their head clear and feet on the ground ready to run and are looking to achieving something. Call it an awkward position. Cop-Out.. call it what it is. In the streets squandering opportunity. The argument... I am not getting up, doing nothing to support this country, this establishment, or the white man... yet if you haven't lost that opportunity to help yourself by being caught up in his penal system... then you get up everyday, like it or not... and commute to his place of ownership and make his bread.
