    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Did yall hear about this?

    George Zimmerman’s Website Raised $200,000, Lawyer Says

    “And he said those are the accounts that had the money from the Web site he had and that there was about $200,000, $204,000 that had come in to date.”

    And even though Zimmerman’s do-it-yourself website was taken down yesterday, O’Mara said that he plans to start a legal defense fund “done the right way” to solicit donations. “I’ve had dozens–hundreds actually of people wanting to donate,” the attorney said.

    What am i doing wrong? We never get anything close to this kind of support.

    We were here providing a place for all the many deaths inflicted on Black People for the last 14 years ... and all i get is grief when it comes to asking for or needing financial help to keep our home alive ... but this man ... these people ... financially support their own ... even when they're wrong.

    I aint even asking you to support us when we're wrong, just support us if you think we're right, if you think we're doing a good thing, if you'd like to see the site stay alive ... any little bit of help ... and i'm left struggling, worrying, praying, hoping that we can stay alive another month ... and then we have this.

    Something is really wrong.

    It's sad to me ... but the reality ... and i gotta deal with it.

    It aint easy.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    It's where we are as a people.

    Elizabeth Keckley saw recently emancipated Africans genuinely pining for slavery. Slavery!

    She summed it up:

    "Dependence had become part of their second nature, and independence brought with it the cares and vexations of poverty."

    Few of us planned to be collectively independent. Hence independence for the greater good is a struggle.

    I saw a program that was bringing employment to young girls in a small African village have to beg for money most of us had in our pockets. That's just where we are.

    If we don't try to change it--that's where we will be.

    Don't worry sister, in time I'm sure things will better than you could have wished for while you were writing that, I definitively plan on supporting the movement come payday.

    But on another note...:great: we live in a country where there's this much support for the wrong side of that kind of situation.....we might....just might...be living in a hostile country

    I am quoting our ancestor's book (Behind the Scenes).

    http://books.google.com/books?id=0U...QHp3LyJBA&ved=0CB8Q6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false

    At the end of the paragraph on page 140, she is quoted saying this, not in reference to herself, but of those Africans who were disappointed with 'freedom.'

    It's not pessimism that I mean to portray. Only the need to counteract the mis-education from which we suffer. Unfortunately, a lot of us don't find it necessary to counteract the mis-education.

    truth is we are so divided so egolistic and very aware against our own to where it's very hard to come together
    for any reason / but it show how others stick together even when they wrong!
    "intellectualism must be defined as what we are or else the concept itself is our enemy"
    this what we became through the years of mental whitewashed and change our thinking when it comes to supporting
