    "Now when you look at the Emperor

    don't say what you see or what is obvious"

    For 8 years the neocons told white Americans don't ask questions about Bush,
    and if you post facts about his actions in progressive newspaper or websites
    , you are unpatriotic:em0800:

    Sounds like they desired a dictatorship:SuN032:

    But are some Black folks telling others the same thing in the past 2 years?

    Dont say what you see, just say the Emperor's clothes are stylish:qqb016::em1100::em1100:

    Thatz right;

    The trick is ... if you speak the truth or what is obvious then they will attack you; and try to use you as a exploited example to the rest not to do the same ...

    Speak up...

    That is why on television you never hear a criminal speak for himself you only hear media or a

    Judge

    who

    cannot understand what you are saying because you are not speaking " Kings language" or "water laws" ...

    But after the case the judge will go down the street and order burgerz and friez and whatever else with out a problem....


    This is obviously crazy...

    But no one ....


    let me recant that


    No media coverz it...



    I just find it fun to realize that the reality I live in is not my fault...


    And I hope each one of you out there realize that non of this is your fault...


    Many people out there are screwing you over "Because" you are a thinker...


    So now that the world is in a mid point it iz time to sell dancing,sportz and singing agian .... muhahahahaahhahaha


    Well I mean ...... it worked last time ... muhahaha!!!!

    Bin Laden's dead. The Adminstration bombed Africa.


    Time for us all to get back to work.

    Food, clothing, shelter, education and employment.

    yes but who is controlling the strings to that?

    A Monsanto man inspecting the natios food?
    We cant even feed ourselves, the Black farmers ere paid past seeding time so an entire season was lost waiting and then got 50 grand just enough to pay 1/8 of back bills

    Cothing?
    garment workers unions are being busted across the nation ,
    as wellas manufacturing being outsourced and
    bust the move;
    the outsourcing is now subsidized,
    and we still do not cloth ourselves, yeah we got hip hop designer this or that but cant even purchase a piar of drawers or swaet socks from a black company.

    Shelter? who is fighting the war against the poor in the 9th ward, where they seekto demolish homes unscathed by katrina to bild luxury co-ops and condos?
    Where is the bailout for Black families who have bee ripped off, not for being ignorant and not doing thei homework r reading the fine print, but for being scammed by verifaible illegal subprime loans, well at least 40 state attorney generals claimed they were illegal,
    and the funds cut from HUd in the last 2 years

    Yeah Food Clothing and Shelter, if one is talking about some real tangible Black nationalism, that if worked on now by at least 70% of us would not take fruiton until about 6 years

    but meanwhile what are folks to do in the
    mean time in between time?

    No one has all the answers. Cant feed all the people in the world.


    And I dont profess to be a social engineer, control no strings, etc.

    Its easy to list all the ills in the community, but it's gotta start sometime, somewhere.

    Maybe its as simple as doing something nice for the kids, being respectful to each other.
    I think we are capable of doing both at the same time. Principles of Black Nationalism, while we work within the existing system.

    We are creative.

    you have an idea why this post was bumped up

    For instance they have practicaly one half of the black community right now here in the largest city in the world too sppoked to ride the subway or Amtrak
    on Mother's Day weekend out of fear of

    the ghost of Bin Laden,
    and you could not tell one of them this is all hype,

    so I made the response becuase I wondered where you where coming from, with such a basic statement

    in lieu of all this ;

    "Lemme make some press so my ratinig can go up"

    propaganda in the press that has folks feeling scared or patriotic for all the wrong reasons.

    And folks are telling us to shut up and put our heads in the sand like ostriches and pretend that al of this is not happening.
