Big props for passing on this latest wake call to all of us!!!!!
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.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?
sure we can.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.
