How can we (begin to) have an authentic conversation about this issue, such that we can insulate ourselves from the external compression caused by a racist system that is literally killing us? Explain to me what you think the reason is that the system needs Black people to put under its boot? And, if we truly understand what this "need" is, and see it clearly for what it is, do you believe Black people have the ability to deprogram from a slave mentality and form a mass resistance?
Personally I feel it is viable stage first step for the nuclear Black family, Not just us Black men but Black women and Black children alike. However we can't establish and guarantee our future to struggle for perseverance unless a cross section of Black men, Black women and our Black sons and daughters rich or poor need to return to the basic tenets that our elders established for us that many times resulted in their incarceration and more so their deaths at the ends of 6 strand ropes. We need to reestablish the nuclear family then form neighborhood coalitions to establish our own power base by creating massive voting blocks, starting wholly controlled real estate, banking ventures, business ventures and real world career training for our youth. Solid post.

Can we truly develop a healthy state of mind while living in the belly of the beast? As I scrolled down your list in your last post, SOA, I started to feel sad when I had to acknowledge that many of our Black men suffer from mental health issues...and when our Black men suffer, the entire Black community suffers as well. But questions also came to mind as I scrolled through the list, that are very important to our healing. Where is our homeland? Where are our roots? We are so spread out and often detached in the U.S., wouldn't it make us feel better when we looked around and lived where there are a majority of people like us and owning and running stuff? I remember what it felt like before integration and I feel a sense of loss now that I don't have that same experience today. How can we truly rise above depression when we are constantly reminded that we are an oppressed people? Isn't it only fair that our dreams be our reality? Who wants to live constantly in a dream state? How many of us can honestly say that we are happy or feel joy most of the time? Or at least feel a sense of self-satisfaction? I don't mean to be pessimistic or sound hopeless when it comes to Black people in the U.S. being able to achieve good mental health, but in all honesty, I wonder whether we can living here.

sure we can.

i have been through a lot of therapy and done a lot of spiritual restructuring.
as a result i have achieved a good balance. don't have as many friends as i once did.
i can say that as long as one's happiness depends on external things they will be vulnerable.
true happiness comes from spiritual peace which is internal and which we control.
