I never thought of it that way,many points.Keita said:What stagnates the black teens mind? HHhhmm...suffice it to say that it began at birth and not during the teen years. The teen years are simply a continuation of the previous years that they were blinded, misguided, visually and miseducationally controlled and manipulated...socially or environmentally conditioned or heavily impressed upon="teen carry over of the previous years".
This is the general answer, not the absolute answer, for nothing can be applied to 100% of the people. The previous conditions I mentioned are conditions that make it extremely difficult for teens to over come or move beyond without something interjecting upon their previous conditioning. Why? Because a ball set in motion tends to stay in motion unless something interferes with it.
Therefore the problem with the teens is that there is not enough interference to cause the ball to go in another direction. Why? Because unfortunately there are not enough knowledgeable adults to bring this about as it pertains to what they really need. My greatest pain is to see our teens go through the same cycles of ignorance and control that the older generations went through, meaning that "those who fail to remember the past are doomed to repeat it".
Remember, we as a people are victims of "historical amnesia". As long as you remember that, you will search the ends of the earth to acquire what you need or what was taken. Do not become a victim of any thought process until you have exhausted every possible angle to an issue or question which will allow you to weigh it out for yourself.
