    Yes...

    There are all sorts of excuses to cop out/kiss up/give up:

    But...

    I do some things for the sake of my own dignity/self respect/etc. too...

    And...

    How about you, too, posters?

    Holla holla...

    Any and all suggestions, as regards means/ways/etc. to move us forward again, from making new excuses to making a difference, both will be appreciated and quite welcomed...

    Thanks!

    It is not always easy or simple to pass along the lessons etc. of one's life experiences etc. via this form of communication...

    On the other hand:

    While it was and is obvious some of our peoples past generations were a bad reflection of merely seeing themselves as the helpless black victims of white victimizers, others didn't or wouldn't, or there wouldn't have been black slave revots, Fred Douglass, MLK, Jr., Malcolm X, the Panthers, etc., and everybody else some claim or say they continue to be inspired by, via posts on these boards or otherwise...

    Thing is:

    Never before has the regression and retreat of the people themselves been so characterized by their own wrongheaded deeds and words, whereas there wouldn't be a Fifty etc. if those sort of entertainers didn't have an audience to play to...

    Some of my generation had the likes of the Last Poets and Gil Scott/Heron who gave us wake up calls:

    Perhaps some of you need and should want to put out your own...

    :fyi:

    Why all of the annoying cheap shots and endless gripes?

    Also, it seems you're afraid to ever be wrong, afraid to admit anybody else is ever right, and since we're just airing our opinions, what's your point?!?

    Yes, you do seem and sound to so desire the attention, etc., but you're beginning to get it for all of the wrong reasons, bruh!

    Posters, I was and am simply striving and trying to get my point(s) across, annoyed (not angry)--disappointed--(hardly outraged). at a person who is being far less than he can (and should) be, i. e., because he also can't and won't exibit (good) common sense and/or use his head for more than a hatrack!

    Making it personal/being subjective about it all etc. is a classic (and lightweight) reaction--hardly a response to challenges, i. e., to what it does take to approach our various relations ala a 'tough love' perspective...

    It is our own shortcomings/weaknesses/etc. which undermine the very things "Ankhur" etc. complain and despair about too...

    Though it's also my desire to reach--to teach--not just preach!

    One leads by the way of one's own example...

    If only my 'critics'/detractors/(rivals) could and would strive and try to get their minds around that too...
