    Well, I'm not speaking about poverty in wholly economic terms, but in general.

    Still not clear....

    What does poverty have to do with low expectations..low morale in terms of Black mindset..? Poverty will affect anyones mindset..I need more. Its not just poverty that causes low expectations and low morale

    WELL....IN MY OPINION.....
    WE HAVE AT THE VERY LEAST , BEEN BRAINWASHED....
    WE'VE BEEN CAPTURED...
    MANIPULATED...
    DECIEVED...
    RAPED....
    CONDITIONED...
    DIVIDED....

    AND A HOST OF A LOT OF OTHER EVILS....

    I LIVED IN A GHETTO , WITH THE GHETTO MINDSET FOR MANY YEARS...

    ONE THING I DO KNOW WHEN IT COMES TO A GROUP OF PEOPLE REPRODUCING WITHIN AN ENDLESS MIND-CONTROLLING CYCLE WITHIN A POVERTY-FILLED ENVIRONMENT....

    IT'S BEEN SET UP TO LOOK LIKE THERE'S NO WAY OUT....AND SOME OF US WHO ARE NOT SO FORTUNATE TO BE TAUGHT OR EXPOSED TO POSITIVE THOUGHT ON A REGULAR BASIS , REALLY DO ADAPT TO AND ACCEPT THE POVERTY MINDSET......ESPECIALLY WHEN THE MAJORITY DWELL IN IT....

    EVEN SOME OF US THAT ARE EDUCATED , CAN LET THE SUFFERING ( or ghetto mindset ) THAT WE EXPERIENCED , COME TO LIGHT IN CERTAIN WAYS UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.......HENRY LOUIS GATES BEING ARRESTED , FOR EXAMPLE..

    MY ISSUES ARE MOSTLY CENTERED AROUND THE IMAGES THAT OUR FAMOUS STARS ARE FORCED TO DISPLAY....BECAUSE IT CONFUSES US AS A PEOPLE IN WHOLE AND IT GIVES THE IMPRESSION THAT THROUGH SPORTS & ENTERTAINMENT IS THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE IT BIG.....

    AND CONSIDERING THAT THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY IS UNDER THE COMPLETE CONTROL OF THESE " DEVILS ".....MAKES ME VERY ANGRY....

    SO , YES......I DO BELIEVE SOME OF US ARE STUCK IN THE POVERTY/GHETTO - MINDSET....SOME BY CHOICE WITHOUT POSITIVE KNOWLEDGE.......SOME BY RELAPSE.....AND SOME BY DECEPTION & MANIPULATION....

    i don't know do First Americans have one?

    We want to blame White folks for stereotyping us, and now we sit here and support White Supremacy , by totaly disregarding the Black professional class, the Black business class, the Black middle class and the Black working class.
    I grew up working class and Muhammed Speaks was in the house since I was 3

    So I can tell you that the Nation of Islam......, we will march to Washington , but neglect thier prosperity conciousness that they worked hard to achieve, for over 50 years,

    when it comes to conversations like this.

    And folks want to talk about Metu Neter, but forget the prosperity conciousness of Kemetic shrines of the Ausar-Auset Community in most Black communities here and in the Caribean,
    also Smau Tauii in Brooklyn under Queen Afua
    and also Yaweh Ben Yaweh community in Florida,
    and the churches of Reverand Johnnie Youngblood, Pastor Bernard, and Herbert Daughtry.

    Now when you mention Duaghtry, you have to mention Elombe Braith and the Patrice Lumuba Coalition,
    Sister Viola Pummer and the December 12th Movement, and City Councilman Charles Barron,
    all with tens of thousands of followers who are too busy dealing with Black Nationalism, and PanAfricanism, to be under the yoke of some mind controlled party,
    so no poverty mindset there either!
