We like to hash out armchair strategies. We know exactly what our problems are as a peoplee and we are not short on solutions for how we need to deal with those problems. But when the nitty gets down to the gritty we come nose to nose with the "fact" that our enemies will not let us do these things. That one little three letter word is the root. the core. the height, length depth and width of all our problems. LET. we need to change this situation because see we don't succeed in life because someone let us, but because no one can stop us. We must move out of the situation where someone has to let us do stuff to the situation where we are the lords of our own destiny. And let me tell y'all something, the white man is not going to put us in that sitution. He's not going to show us how to get to that situation. And yea, he's going to try to stop us, but so whaat? He had to fight for his own freedom. He said give me liberty or give me death. As long as we would rather live on our knees than die on our feet then that's where life will leave us--on our knees whining like children about what those mean white folks won't let us do--rebelling like teenagers who want toe previleges of adulthood but not the responsibilities. I think we can do better than this. If you're with me give me a 1.
