"What's up everyone!" I want to talk to you guys about power and how we must develop some real power if we plan on our continued survival on this planet and beyond as a people. First off I want to say that we as black people have a tremendous amount of power we are not a dependent people by any stretch of the imagination. We have been made to think that we are a powerless people who are hopelessly dependent on others for our very survival. I'm sure you guys know that this is BS. IN order for a small group of people to rule a larger group they must make those people think backwards. They will only give them and education and believe systems that will only reinforce this intended goal. Regardless of how good it makes the dominated people feel. What the dominated group fails to realize is that one of the key goals in a effective system of imperalism is to make the dominated group feel good when they are not acting out in their best interests. We have to realize that this type of relationship will only produce and attitude of self-destruction in the dominated people. The results of this type of relationship is clearly evident in our communities today. People like Bill Cosby and a host of other blacks speak about this self destructive behavior in our communties. We tend to talk about the problems in our community head on with out looking at the social and political implications. If Bill Cosby and other blacks want to talk about the issues in our community like crime and education. They must also address this relationship we have with europeans. Blacks like Bill Cosby talk like what's happening in our community is only a issue of morals and standards. The main argument always seems to be if we just get our act together and act more like the dominant class act. If we would just act right and spoke proper english and pursue a good education things would be better for us. You see all of that may sound good but in reality if we were to follow all of those rules we would still be in the same position we are in today. So to talk about the symptoms we see in our communities as if it's just and issue of morals and standards is just as backwards and self defeating as the actual behavior that exist. The problems that exist in the african world stems from us being dominated by another group "period". It comes from the lack of and our inability to cultivate and properly disperse power. You see blacks would rather look at the symptoms. Than deal with the issue of power. We would rather try to convert a criminal people to the own religion and constitution than deal with the reality of power. So you got these jokers like Cosby whining and complaining about speaking better english and pursuing education that is actually only a process in miseducation. They talk about these issue but continue to fail to deal with the subject of power and how another group uses their power to continue to dominate us.
