Historically most black people have had limited exposure to whites due to segregation. I am talking direct contact not via the media. Things have changed since the 60s but even then the majority of black people have no direct contact with whites. We remain relatively divided and isolated and our alienation is causing increased marginalization. This is why I mentioned the OWS. It helped me to see that we have finally reached a point where the liberal/Marxist-socialist agenda has clearly failed in its 'Black Vanguard' theory. I could not make the same argument 20 years ago but today it is clear the liberal agenda has failed because there is no true black working class leadership on a mass scale. It has been politically neutralized and economically disenfranchised. Just look around. How many black people here are doing coalition work with whites trying to build common ground? We can't even come together to build consensus among ourselves, and less are trying to do so each day.
A lot of truth in the above.
However, one can't expect to knock the ball out of the bark every time they
step to the plate and take the first swing, then call it a game before we reach
middle of the inning if we don't knock it out of the park. Many of our aims
have been stunted; major set backs -no question.
THE_GOD said in another thread he (...we) will never ever have power.
Is he right?
I suggested that as of this point we stop having children (encourage our
children and or their children) to stop having kids, that way we'll just
phase out of existence. I doubt that many folks, here on Destee.com or
beyond, would accept that. But no power means death (sooner or later), right?
Regardless of whatever 'movement' black folks wanna title it, we'll never
get on base (ya'know, got to step on the first base before you make it home)
if we abort the game for not hitting a homerun... on the first swing.
So then I guess we should just do like john mayer and sit "waiting on the
world to change"?
From what you've shared in the past threads, you are doing some very good
things out west. Hang in there 'obi wan'... Who knows how many anakin's it will
take to find luke. That seems to be the way of things. We keep plugging, poking
probing and prodding. Just maybe she/he's in your classroom. Or runnin' with
a crew that I rap with from around the way from time to time when we find
ourselves in a cypher.
If Clyde can believe in jesus the christ; I can believe in us. (a little levity)
