    I feel you tremendously, this piece was profound and it's so unfortunate that what you speak of is true and a growing state of mind of among black America today but if the enlightened ones such as ourselves are still striving for emancipation and spiritual elevation in order to obtain education, liberation and reparations - There will be change, it is inevitable.
