    Here is another question like first for the young and old, males and females. Same rule applies, only one answer please. Here is the question.


    As African Americans what is our greatest downfall?


    I personally feel many of us have no call to action. This means, we can talk and get fired up about something but can never summon the courage to act upon our words or thoughts.

    What do you think? Please share.

    Our downfall is unity! We don't support each other enough. We become distracted easily and our focused is turned away from the goal at hand.

    So true. We've become complacent, unwilling to leave our comfort zones.

    Our refusal to share with one another. Whether it be feelings, fears or a good job lead.
