    Harmbee! The fourth night of Kwanzaa has arrived we thank God for the ancestors we are alive!
    Cooperative Economics=Ujamma, what can we do if we all come toether? Can we build a comm-unity!
    Can we come and unite in economic growth and development.
    We can account in our hood where the money was being spent.
    Ujamma, hands dip in waves of cotton as we share crop our way to the "Great up North". Ujamma, before freedom the underground railroad fed, clothed and educated a new unseen nation.

    Ujamma! Cooperative economics taught us to create jobs and legitimate hustles and sign notes and buy property acquire
    limited partnerships and Corporations as we become a new
    consuming Nation... that is not the cooperative economics that
    our forefathers had in mind ...cooperate in creating econmics,
    not in consuming alone...we must remember or we are doomed
    to repeat, lest we again have waves of cotton at our feet.
    Buying the Basketball team instead of being bought by the
    team. Cooperative economics owning the haircare company
    instead of keeping them in Rolls Royces and Mini Coopers.
    No, that was no blooper!

    Ujamma! on the fourth night the third red candle is lit representing the blood sweat and tears that it takes to create a community ...to create cooperative economics is to bleed as though in war...for your
    very life...for this impoverished strife. The blood of birth as we
    create this new evolving nation, Cooperative Econmics as
    we work shoulder to shoulder. Together we are everything
    apart we are just alone!

    Let us support our own, one hand supports the next, and so on. Economic building blocks, laying a firm foundation for the next.
