    As you stated, vocational training is important.

    Maybe I'm not in the right mood to discuss this...but we all know what needs to be done. We need to start with loving one another...AGAIN. We should care for one another like we once did as a people.

    We need our own way of communicating. We need to stop believing in what's on television.

    We should always think positive of one another before thinking negative. That comes with trust....and trust comes with communion.

    We'll have to start small...but it will grow big time from there.

    If we don't do these things, nothing else will work. Not business, not relationships....NOTHING!

    This may be the wrong forum for this topic. I'm not sure. Or maybe I went off on a different topic. If I did, my bad.

    No, you are in the right mood, and frame of mind bruh...

    There has been no semblance of unity in the black community since integration took place. We kicked our own to the curb and ran to Yt. Much, if not all, of our heritage, including our togetherness, and many of our institutions have been mostly lost or destroyed. Like Operation Push back in the day in Chicago. We as a people pretty much say nothing and do nothing to effectively hold on to our rich heritage for example here where I live in Washington state. IMO we are probably the most divided people on the earth when, in fact, it should be the opposite. We don’t support each other nearly as much as we should, in business or anything else. A black own business does you wrong, they get dragged thru the mud and never patronized again. While Wal=Mart, Macys, McDonalds, etc do it all the time and we still flock to them.

    Also whites, Asians and other minorities have their differences also. But the one thing they don’t have a problem with is “the crabs in the barrel” mentality from which we blacks suffer.

    Sorry for the rant...

    Much luv and respect

    Peace!

    Does anyone ever feel like black Americans, especially those of my generation(born in the late 80's to early 90's) stay focused on fighting small battles instead of organizing and preparing themselves to come out strong in the war set on us?

    That's why I think it's vitally important for us to start repairing relationships among ourselves.

    There is another thread speaking of how to decrease Black homicide. The answer, IMO, is we need to love each other more...and that comes from developing strong relationships with one another.

    I agree with you. We also keep fighting the same issues that should have been settled a long time ago. We keep hashing up the same crap over and over. I don't know how many conversations can be had over light skin/dark skin issues...or the young against the older...or the male vs female. This silliness needs to stop.

    As I stated above, we need to work on developing strong relationships. And, for those people who just can't get along, stay away from each other...dang.
