    I was at the gas station this morning, when I saw this newspaper. It's one of those free papers you can pick up just about anywhere, and it only comes out once a month; but I've always found it to be very informative. Besides, it's the only paper devoted to black issues besides The Final Call (which I also read).
    In any case, I saw this article and it really spoke the truth to me, and I thought I'd share it with my family here.

    http://www.michigancitizen.com/defa...&pform=&sc=1070&hn=michigancitizen&he=.comout

    Basically, what I'm reading is that all too often, racism & white supremacy are minimized & sterilized to the point that they are made to be seen as "a thing of the past" and "the exception, not the rule". Key words are used to describe them to make them even seem to be something else entirely (I hear the word prejudice used a lot to describe clearly racist actions).
    So family, tell me your thoughts on this. I'm always looking for an education.

    that has to be

    the ultimate programming/conditioning i've ever seen

    racism is a ruse lol

    hahahahahhahahahahaaha

    it's hilarious

    it doesn't even warrant a discussion

    just like the term "post-racial"

    lol

    we all know we might not see racism sense racism but it's there

    you can't see air but you KNOW it's there you're breathing

    but racism sometimes can't be seen until you stop breathing

    of course this article was not written for us

    it was written for programmed people and people under 25

    Yea I know, but I always try to get the truth out of something like it.
    I was drawn to the statement saying that white supremacy is the DNA that this country was founded on. Things like that I think about and feed on.
    I always love when I'm fed misinformation. They've done that to me my whole life, but I've learned to take it and find the truth. That way, they have unknowingly given me more ammunition.

    I found the article to be well-written and on point in explaining and explicating what "racism" really is, especially the part about Detroit!

    This is so true for that city and other major cities which have large Black populations and, perhaps, even some Black leadership. The "power structure" is still comprised of/from White control.

    And THIS part was reminiscent of a quote I once heard attributed to the late Sam Walton of the Wal-Mart Chain, "Any male White American has no reason not to succeed. This country was designed for him to be so."

    Now, I'm paraphrasing, but that was the gist of it. I've never been able to actually find it; but, whether he said it or not, it is certainly true.

    Sho nuff. In order to make a difference in the BIG picture, we have to make a difference in the small one first.
