    The world is watching, If it was not known before the mask is off and it shows the blatant racism and classism that goes on here

    Right now we are in a weakened state but we are still so very strong. The question is what will we do NOW collectively to restore ourselves to the glory we once had? And the glory I am speaking of goes beyond the fashion etc.(Not taking away from that) But that glory is a drop in the bucket. However, it does serve as a reminder of the influence we actually have in this world.

    I mean we as Black People, regardless of religion, spirituality, income and so-called economic status.
    Because first and foremost we are black people before anything else.

    The government has failed in a proper reponse to this crisis. I did just hear that the airlines are able to land at airports now and are going to start evacuation flights. There is a convoy of over 1700 semi trailers that should be there by tomorrow carrying food, medical, and tents for housing.

    I have to completly agree that it has taken way to long to evacuate these people. They are desperate and need all of our help and not just our tax money James.
