Rather than talking and debating about the monstrosities going on in America right now, we need to shift our thinking to being solution focused. A lot of people are talking about protesting and marching which is all well and good, if we all decide to ACTUALLY do it. However, yesterday there was suppose to be a march down at the US Embassy, a friend and I went down there…you know there was no one there???? It was so embarrassing after so many people were hyping it on Facebook, talking about, “yeah I’m there 7 O’Clock”. Anyway I’m not here to dwell on the negative but like I said its all about being solution focused, we need ideas of how we are going to take a stand against this and actually stick to it, so please leave your solutions below.
Unfortunately there is too much talk going on within our culture and not enough action. I’m not even from America but I feel the pain and the plight of my people, and it hurts to know that we can’t even stand together when it comes to human life. It’s happening so much (these murders) that we are becoming desensitised to it. Action needs to be taken, if it’s a war then so be it, if you wanna take the peaceful route then hit them in the economy. Stop buying products from these corporate companies and name brand clothing lines and start supporting our own business, better yet start creating more of our own. We need to stand together for something and it needs to start today. I’m tired of the protesting and the debating, we need to be solution focused and think about something right now, TODAY!
Black men where is your fighting spirit? Black men have been public enemy number one for centuries and it seems like the only thing that entices you to violence is another black man! Have him look at you the wrong way of step on your foot and you wanna kill him!!! This behaviour is absurd, why can’t you save that fire for the people who really need it? Why is it always the black woman who has your back and is screaming the loudest for you? I read on another blog that we are the only race interested in integration (read the post here…very insightful), every other cultures parents are militant when it comes to interracial dating because they understand the importance of preserving their culture. It is true that we have always drawn the short stick because we had our history stolen from us and erased from memory so we don’t even know where we are coming from. Well it’s time to educate ourselves, know your history and be proud and stop waiting for the white man to validate you.
Meanwhile the church is praying…which I don’t have a problem with. What I do have a problem with is the fact that they don’t highlight the warrior spirit of the people they preach about in the bible such as David, Joshua, Gideon and Peter, they all had a fighting spirit. When Goliath came to defy the army of Israel did David pray in a corner? or did he say “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?” Make no mistake David said he would kill him and did it. That same David said about God “You train my hands for war and my fingers for battle”. I know you’re probably saying that the battle is spiritual now and we are no longer permitted to fight in the flesh. Well I say are we being killed spiritually or in the flesh right now? Because it kinda looks like real life to me. Yes I am angry and yes I can’t even get all my thoughts out on the page fast enough, it’s probably not even making any sense.
Anyway here is a link to a list of black owned companies in the uk you can start pumping your money into. It’s not much but it’s a start. In the meantime between time what ideas do you have?
