    I always wonder
    We preach so much about
    Black unity and how to change it
    How to make things better..
    Besides on this forum
    What outside activities do the people
    On here do to promote all the black preservation??
    I mean from race to lifestyles to education..
    Cause I see 100's of threads
    I see everyone always has there views
    Yet what are doing in the black community
    To make all of this happen??
    Besides haggling each other for days on these issues...

    Pretty much what I do in the community is rejected by my peers.

    It's boring.

    Don't mind.

    If you know what is in store for this world and understand trends, vision, prophesy, then you would see why you would want to stay away from alot of the things that occur. It's like your in WAR, when you take on the stuff out there, all you can think about is yourself to SURVIVE. If you like WAR then these times are the greatest to test your SKILL.

    If you like or would like to have PEACE, then you will have to be patient. That is the sacrifice. And patience is boring to enough folks. Patience doesnt mean your inactive or waiting. It just means to me your not at WAR. But for me it does have its reward in the game of life. Peace has led me into many ways to prosperity in whatever form because I can THINK beyond SURIVIAL and MYSELF.

    Otherwise all this preaching will continue without the works to back it up. And again it doesnt have to be material works either.

    Wait let me revise it there is works to back it up but it leads to more WAR. A WAR tree cannot bear PEACEFUL fruits. Only a PEACEFUL tree can bear PEACEFUL fruits.

    Just some thoughts on the matter.

    Yet your vision is part of your future
    Its not like you spend everyday on here
    Stated how much the white man is the devil
    Knowing full well you wouldnt say that to his face
    No matter the situation I have never seen that
    Its almost like people are living in the 60's still
    Trying to find away out-Yet there are so many avenues now
    Thats not to say that we are free in everyway
    yet I think we should be fortunate that we have what we have
    And if we dont like the way the world is do something about it
    Or leave the US cause if people hate the white man
    And all that the white man does here I dont see why people
    Put up with it and stay here!!!

    Thats my opinion though

    Let me ask you if you dont mind where did I say the "white man" is the devil.

    I use the term "ruthless white man" so is there any difference between the "white man" and a "ruthless white man"?

    If not then I am not making any false assumptions. Well again I do not wish to go further. Great day otherwise.

    Well, me myself, I don't do any community work or anything. I work during the day and I'm starting a business at night aside from living my life. I do talk to everyone I know and try to get them to think about the future, but as fas as trying to preach to everyone in the streets...no I don't do that. I can't help everyone, so I concentrate on people I know and meet. I will be able to do a lot more good when I have more free time after being fully a self-employed business owner. Then I want to work closely with other black businesses and other countries. But right now, I have to concentrate on me because I'm the only one who's going to do that.

    I feel that
    I support black businesses when I see one
    Yet its just when I am on here
    I notice how much hatred people have towards whites
    In some of these threads and I just wonder
    What has been done to them personally
    For them to react to whites the way they do
    I have some whites in my family
    Mainly latin and blacks yet-They never come off
    The way I see people on here potray whites to be
    Thats all I was trying to say...

    I just think as long as someone is happy
    It shouldnt matter where they shop at
    Who they date or whatever-Its like we saying we are not going
    To shop at white stores just for an example and only shop at blacks
    Yet the black business owner has to get alot of those products manufactured
    Also shipped rom others outside of the black community

    Yeah, I hear that. My feeling is, that black people have absolutley no power in this country and that isn't by accident. This country as a whole doesn't have the interest of black people on their mind. The reason is because black people have not shown that we have our own interest on our minds. We can't fault white people for what they do to us, until we fault ourselves for what we don't do. We have a lot of money in our hands, yet we support white businesses and others, then get surprised when something like Katrina happens. Why wouldn't it, since we have no economic power (as far as businesses and orginizations) that will hold people responsible for their mistreatment of black people. I think this is why it's important to support black businesses if they are good businesses. If they lack customer service and quality, then go somewhere else. Don't support them just because they're black. But, if there is a legit black owned business (who is doing good for black people's interests) why not show some love? They're more likely to serve our interest than any white owned business. But, a lot of people just hate white people because it's easier to hate a group as a whole, than to actually think about which ones are the problem. It's the same brainless nonsense that white hate groups subscribe to. No race of people are all bad. I think since black people don't have businesses set up or any infrastructures, it's more important to us not to put all of our money into the pockets of others, but on the other hand, black people have not stepped up to the plate. We can't blame white people for not having businesses set up. That's b/s. We could all do it, but we allow ourselves to play the victim role too much. That's the real reason we still put our money into others hands, because we don't want to take on the responsibility of providing for ourselves.

    Dam always keeping it real Bruh
    I felt that for real
    That is the reason its they take groups
    Some us all up and we sum them all up
    Evaluate life this way and then there is just
    Mindless seperation everywhere
    I think that its pathetic that people blame others
    For all of there problems instead of taking
    Responsibility for what they are doing for real
    Its funny to me that we do have alot of successful blacks
    Yet some of them only open up like restaurants or now
    It seems like they are investing sports teams
    Or now they are coming out with there own rims and shoes
    Which seem to be the two biggest things right now
    If blacks want to grow and build and develop
    Why not with all those millions invest in housing for blacks
    Or open something will help everyone like "Magic Johnson" does
    That Brother there has made some mistakes like everyone else
    But too me he is a true black leader I didnt realize how
    Much that brother has truely done I can respect someone like that

    Quote-That's the real reason we still put our money into others hands, because we don't want to take on the responsibility of providing for ourselves.
