I hate to be the bearer of bad news...but have you ever heard the expression "army of one"? There is a reason you were born onto this planet by yourself and you'll leave by yourself.MetaSaience said:Bro. Oldiesman, I was thinking the very same! Let's consider what Bro. Edward Williams is telling us. If we are indeed born into a race war, who are our generals? Bro. Williams you bring up a very interesting point. What is a War? Who has educated us about what a "War" is? White folks. In truth we engage in a Race War everyday, ask our unemployed Brothas, our Black Women, or our Black students.
And in all this, who are our Generals? Jesse Jackson?? Al Sharpton....I seriously hope not. In fact, let's look at it this way. Why do we look at these people as Black Leaders or Generals when they have to Army to come defend us?
Perhaps Farrakhan has an army to come defend us? Maybe Rappers like David Banner, 50 Cent and T.I.? T.I. stars in the new movie "American Gangster" and based on his recent weapons charges he's really trying to be one. But again, as Bro. Williams suggests we don't have to be shooting guns to be in a war.
The War in Iraq, is this a Race War as well? Perhaps. In a real War people do die, and we have been dying based upon deliberate attacks from Whites since our arrival here. Attacks on our basic Human rights, attacks on our culture and spiritual freedoms, attacks on our Families, Men Women and children, attacks on our health, attacks on our minds- even attacks on our future.
If we cannot afford a general, one will be appointed for us at the
The General, Chief of Staff, Lieutenant General, Major General, Brigadier General, Colonel, Lieutenant Colonel, Major, Captain, 1st Lieutenant, 2nd Lieutenant, Sergeant Major, First Sergeant, Master Sergeant, Sergeant First Class, Staff Sergeant, Sergeant, Corporal , Specialist, Private First Class, Private...all of whom are YOU. You can't count on anyone else helping you.
Now what happens when we take this position? We no longer name-call other non-white people who don't agree with what we say. Because we know they are not a part of what we are here to do. And you don't have to worry about insubordination because it is just you. Just you against THEM.
Sorry 'bout that...
