    Family ... i mean ... i'm jes say'n ... but for real doe ...

    We have no substantive evidence of collective unity ... little individual responsibility ... while opportunity for both abounds ... we complain.

    We find and focus on things to complain about. He aint this. She aint that. When great things regarding each other could be spoke of, we opt to complain.

    It's the kraziest thing to witness.

    All grown men and women, spewing rhetoric of unity, forgiveness, God, Spirituality, Ancestors, togetherness, and forward movement with their words ... the same men and women will contradict those words with other words and actions contrary to it all. Canceling out one's own good, with their own negativity, losing their own ground.

    It's psychotic behavior Family.

    Something is really really wrong.

    I think we all need to stop, be still, and listen ... don't talk ... no one talk ... and everyone listen.

    So the complaining can stop.

    We are too blessed, to always be complaining about every little thing ... insignificant stuff ... we give inordinate amounts of energy to ... it's krazee.

    We are blessed to have each other, in the condition that each is in, right now.

    Imagine if we got news that any one of us passed away tonight, no matter the disagreements shared previously, our hearts would be heavy ... we would miss that Sister or Brother ... yet right now, we are blessed to have each other, and can show no real appreciation or respect.

    It's psychotic. Plain and Simple. Krazee.

    The therapist couch will be available soon (Dr. PurpleMoons is on her way) ... yall just stand in line ... and she'll get to each of you as soon as possible ... :injured:

    :heart:

    the complainers are the ones history remembers as those who wake up folks out of complacency like

    Good point !! Complaining may be worthy if you're willing to do the work and it brings about change.

    there is also the concept of just doing the work in isolated groups and never alerting anyone about the storm ahead, but it is interesting that all of these folks were also accused of just talking and doing nothing, folks wanted to challenge them also,
    and as stated before when they presented the work they did, they were left isolated.

    Do we have a concept of what journalism means?
    When someone calls the alarm, they must put out the fire as well?

    Maybe it's best not to alert anyone or pull the fire alarm as they did and just let things sink or the fire burn down the house without calling the alarm, none of these folks became rich nor got pleasure from thier complaining

    maybe we should just accept white supremacy in it's miriad forms, fold our hands and be quiet, and submit.

    thats possible, but many are sensitive about complaints regarding the new administration and it's policies, and making posts exposing that

    appears to some, as complaints on a "brother"

    I just love your thinking style !!

    That's why it's so important to take a stand. Choose our battles, wisely, Yes. But take that stand.

    How many people say such wise , pretty, words, Repetitious often. But exercise the opposite ??

    Anybody ( That's black ) that says a word that not to their liking or out the box. What do we do , shoot them down. Because it don't sound familiar !!

    We keep looking for one person to be all and have all the answers , When will we realize that the answers, solution , puzzle pieces cleverly comes from US , never again will we see an , "me", "I" or just "YOU " ??

    We beat down each other. And love the image of.............

    But Excellent post, and sincerely, Thank you for being YOURSELF !!!

    And NEVER SUBMIT !! To many already have !!!

    Much love to you, and Peace
