    Chuck:

    I hear and read what the posters are concerned about...

    But what are people around them worried about?

    I do feel and think they're find out the people around them are far more concerned about issues closer to home--not all that worried about what's going on/down, i. e., where they have no say so over--outside of these shores-- around the globe...

    FYI...

    ahhhhh ... okay ... thank you for helping me understand ... :love:

    yeah ... i think naturally, most folk are first concerned with their own ability to feed, clothe, shelter, and protect their own selves ...

    but after that ... if one can manage that ... then beyond home, outside, the rest of the world, begins to get a little attention

    we're all in the world together, and at some point, it's probably wise to consider the whole ... if one can

    Love You!

    :heart:

    I can't really speak for those around me much but i know we all reaching for the same
    thing some just in different ways but most of all we all as individuals concern about our
    daily living and survival /jobs but outside the home fronts many are divided .

    most folks i do know who is close biggest concern is survival right now the way things are
    today and how jobless so many are is a heavy weight upon them & family , lot of us in this
    or headed into this problem ......

    Exactly ! At this late hour of history, a dialogue should ensue about a discussion pertaining to that which is generaly described as , topics that should be talked about to get a more clear and comprehensive idea about what we discuss in general, and talk about in particular.
    For instance; the thread clearly asks what are the things that are on the minds of people in our area where we live, and that is important because people have a tendency to talk about this and that but where is the discussion or concern for that and this? Here folks are concerned about a few things, namely things listed as some things that are of great concern on their mind, and why is this you may ask? well because of the simple fact that ideas of expression, expressively addressed, more often then not, lead to conversations that discuss ideas and ideologies to be talked about and more to the point discussed in general.

    Chuck: Those who once pursued a 'me/mine/ours' drift, now find themselves in the same siuations as others, and it is up to us to remind them what reality was/is, if you black, in this white dominated nation...

    Not that I consider all white folks my enemy, but black folk reaching out to the 'occupy' reformers have learned to be cautious and wary too..

    I can tell you from my personal experiences, including those as a young black activist, some white activists only represent themselves-- and others do join their movements to better their own siuations...

    I have hardly brushed aside the wake up calls of posters here and others elsewhere..

    But nothing gained if nothing is risked...

    Always believe in yourselves, and Creators willing, you will reach your goals...

    FYI...

    But seriously one has to be living in a closet to think that the average Black person regardless of income is not up on the latest news, views, corruptions, colusions and conspiracy theories.

    Chuck:

    First of all, thanks, man...

    And in all due respect, I do feel and think too much of the time folk here post about everything but what the majority of their relations are truly concerned and worried about...

    Any number of reasons why not...

    But we have to...

    We are their reps in and outside of our/their communities...FYI...
