    According to popular belief historically and religiously failure to change in relationships has been at the root of disunity.Therefore in our efforts to nuify the Black family,we must first acknowledge how we as a nation have been changed from our original state through robbery of the knowledge of self and not just the historical truths,but also the actual science of what internally makes us tick

    true very true brethren

    i don't see many people acknowledging though

    i see allegiance to the "matrix"

    how do we even begin to break the "spell"?

    by someone daring to speculate "maybe we could break the spell by ..."

    the beginnings of any answer are always contained within the question.

    Interesting concept. Like So'ja, I am curious to learn of steps to "change."

    Maybe we can break the spell by...

    Letting go of preconceived, programmed, propaganda that has been forced upon us by "outsiders". We have to examine the things that we believe FIRST. This goes for religious beliefs, social beliefs, scientific beliefs, and the nature of humans beliefs. The problem with this is PRIDE. Nobody wants to be wrong. So, we have people defending their respective beliefs to the death yet they are DEAD WRONG! Points that keep us from unifying...

    1. We have to realize that the root to ALL EVIL (INCLUDING RACISM) is ignorance. People don't know something...or the believe something that is UNTRUE that is the root to evil.
    2. We are too lazy to seek TRUTH. If it is not something we already You have to fight ignorance with KNOWLEDGE...that is say TRUTH!! None of us have it all, so we continually have to willing to seek truth, study opposing views, use reason, and change to conform to what is ACTUALLY TRUE!
    3.We are unwilling to change! Change is scary and people will fight is tooth and nail. Or just ignore it all-together.

    4.We have to DECIDE ON A CAUSE. The reason we aren't all going in the right direction is because we are not all fight for the same thing. People fight to liberate us (but don't know how). People fight to segregate us. People fight for selfish reasons. People fight just because they are angry. People fight hip-hop, and movies, and drugs, and politics, and each other. But very few of us fight for FREEDOM OF OUR MINDS. Once we have dispelled all of the myths about us, our Creator, and our World we will be free to do whatever it is that our hearts dream of. Until then, we will be splintered and the laughing stock of those whose plan it was to have us right where we are now.

    I like that! Ever evolving, not becoming stagnant.
