    Just the thought of how many Mcduffie's there are that we don't know about, boggles the mind. Oldsoul, the video certainly does your awesome award winning piece of poetry, justice. Awesome..

    We have so many reason to be banded together and organized. Oldsoul your class
    this morning just lit a fire within my spirit. WE MUST DO SOMETHING!!

    The knowledge is here and in our faces daily. But we do nothing. Why??? Are we
    too afraid of going to jail? Can't we just have picket lines letting the world know
    we are still here and do not accept the mistreatment we're receiving from the white
    oppressors.

    CAN'T WE COME TOGETHER AS A RACE AND CONTINUE THE FIGHT FOR OUR ANCESTORS!!! Which can only benefit us on the whole!

    I'm so frustrated, with crime in our communities. I know violence is everywhere, but
    can't we just organize and help our own communities?

    Oh for the days and attitudes of old. I guess we had a leader and stood behind and beside him/them at that time. Im not speaking of violence, just quiet demonstrations,
    asking those in our communities to declare a moratorium on killing, beating and stealing.

    One day at a time.

    I was just thinking, is this something maybe us women could spearhead?

    What say you..my sistahs??
