    Peace and Blessings Family,

    We often come down hard on Sisters and Brothers that do jobs we feel are in support of the system we are all subject to.

    I've seen discussions about the police, military, actors, artists, politicians, etc., usually folk who've been allowed to make a bigger piece of money or have authority.

    I'm under the impression that every single job supports the system, in some way or another ... and if i'm wrong ... please correct me.

    Tell us, what jobs in the USA (or in the world) do not support the system?

    My point is ... how can you come down so hard on the holder of one job ... while you ignore the contribution you make on your job?

    Isn't there something a bit psychotic about this?

    To point at what another is doing, when you are basically doing the same?

    Talk to me Family ... what jobs do not support the system?

    Thanks in advance.

    :heart:

    The Amish prettymuch live in self sufficiecy and pay no taxes

    But the importance of black Solidarity day intiiated in 1969 was to emphaisize that we in all capacities do suport the system in the varios places where we work and that if we united as did the folks in what is now called Egypt and stoped working for that one day November 1,

    on a city wide state wide or national scale

    it would have a serious impact on the sytem and put them in a position to hear our greivances, and take our concerns as serious as they do the fat cats on Wall street

    Destee,

    While I believe I know what you mean when you say "the system".

    Do you mind defining and or giving examples of the 'system'
    so that we may have a frame of reference to work from?

    You've put for ideas worth pondering, as I am doing at this instant.
    I make this request so that I help to maintain the integrity of the
    topic which you've put forth so that I may respond accordingly.

    Brother Raptor ... Peace and Blessings,

    I mean the system as in the government, white supremacy, racism, the ones that are in control, that make and enforce the laws, etc.

    Does that help?

    my mistake, but in a capitalist system as this is, if we had the unity a combined day iof absence as well as complete boycotting would have a serious impact on the system

    Yes, I think.

    ...Okay.

    Admittedly, that is kind of tough.

    Because for me, anything that works toward the interest of afrikan people,
    innately does a disservice to "the system".

    Taxes nowithstanding,

    Being a teacher at an afrikan-centered school does not support the system.
    Assuming the curriculum socializes our children to go about things differently and
    in many cases better than before.

    Being a police commissioner who cracks down hard on police brutality does
    not support the system.

    Being a mayor that sees to it that black contractors get a reasonable share
    of the contracts where construction is concerned does not support the
    system.

    Working in relation with black farmers in creating food/produce stores that,
    built where predominately black folks reside, sell their food at competitive
    to low prices to black folk in proximity does not support the system.

    Supporting black actors/actresses, writers directors in the movie industry
    who will create substantively good shows/movies that bring (un)balance
    to the garbage hollyjew is making, does not support the system.

    I hope I stayed on point with respect to the topic you've put forth.

    If so, I would say in closing that no matter the job, if we haven't attained
    a certain level of consciousness (<<< that word again, lol), then virtually
    anything we do will support "the system".

    Brother Raptor ... i think you're right, in that it's going to be tough to find a job that does not support the system.

    Every one is required to support the system, report to the system, etc., if you work.

    All the activities you listed above, must FIRST support the system, if they want to keep those jobs.

    After meeting the job requirements, if one has a heart, is fair, reasonable, able, and/or inclined, they can impact those they come in contact with, more positively.

    But first and foremost ... to even maintain those positions ... you have to live up to what the system / law requires.

    I agree that most of us have the ability to impact others positively ... and may choose to do so or not ... but supporting the system is not a choice.

    If you're on a job, you've got to do what those who control the system, say you must do ... if you want to keep that job.

    Folk who don't have "conventional, legal, jobs" ... as determined by the system ... must also support the system ... by working free in prison, should they get caught ... or provide others in the system jobs, looking for them.

    Everyone supports the system ... if you work ... or have ever worked ... in this country.

    What we tend to do, is attack each other ... based on someone's perceived notion, that their support of the system, is less than another's.

    It's krazee to me ... a great distraction to us all ... for if we simply accepted that we all do it ... we could quit attacking each other.

    But i think that's how the system is meant to work ... it's thot of everything ... keeping us fussing at each other ... as we continue to support it.

    Yeah ... doing good stuff is great, trying to counter it is great, empowering a child when you can, feeding the hungry, protecting someone from mistreatment ... those are all great things ... but they do not negate the support given to the system.

    In fact, if we count all of that great stuff up, the system still prevails at the end of the day ... at least so far, that's been the case.

    Thanks for Sharing.

    :heart:

    In the Spirit of Sankofa and Peace and Love!




    .......None Sister Destee, according to Dr. Francis Cress Welsing, and I agree with her, the System of Racism White Supremacy is Global and dominates nine(9) areas of life: Economics, Education, Entertainment, Labor, Law, Politics, Religion, Sex and War. Any job after all of that isn't worth having, in my view.

    Great Post!
