Goddess morning Royals. First, give praise and worship to the all High.
We know what we need to do but we aren’t sure on how to do it, since we are radical thinkers. They know the family bond in our people isn’t strong anymore, so they use that against us. They know that if they save us from us then we will turn on them. Therefore “society” has no mean of saving black people. They make too much money from our demise and self-destruction to want to save us. In reality who are they saving us from but our own kind. As a nation, we are strong and a force of determination, with the will to do anything and everything we put our minds to. The only way to continue to keep us down is if they continue to beat us down.
They force us to feel guilty about not being able to support our families the way they think we should. In reality, they are controlling our homes and family’s lives. Let’s be honest here what is guilt; the fact or state of have committed an offense, crime, violation, or wrong especially against moral or penal law; culpability.
We have no reason to feel guilty because we committed none of these things. We do more than our best on what we have to offer our families and if we come together as a community, “society know we would have more. When your child doesn’t get all that they want, remember this, they still have a roof over their heads, clothes on their backs, shoes upon their feet, food for their hunger, water for their thirst, and a person to provide it all for them, you. Take pride in knowing your best is good enough for now. Never thirst after what the next man has because you never know their struggle to get it.
Learn to be disciplined in your spending, living, learning, growing, and waiting because not all thing is for everyone. Like the old saying goes be careful what you wish for because you never know the cost of their fortune. Preying on what the next man have could leave you with a bad taste in your mouth, pain in your heart, misery in your life and death at your door. Be careful what you are willing to give up just to get what you want.
For me I’ll stay with the necessities. I’ll gladly move pass the basics when the Higher Power guide my footsteps. Moving without him causes two spaces ahead then drops you five spaces back so you end up worse than before you started. Learn to be patient in your walk, talk, drive and relationship for you could end with nothing which is less you may have started with, when starting this journey. Reminder, the Higher Power does things in decency and order. You can’t run before you learn to walk and can’t walk before you learn to stand and you can’t stand properly without balance and understanding.
You must understand the process before you do a job, or before you buy a car or before you move to a new home or buy a new home. There is a systematic order to do these things, thinking you are getting ahead of the game when you’re not. You are actually setting yourself up for failure. You ruin your own chances of success by not taking the necessary precaution to prevent failure. So anxious to make it you forget that not all things come together as planned but if you’re not prepared for obstacles then you already failed before you began.
Knowing your status, stance, and prospective on success as well lost will have prepared you for anything life throws at you. Understanding your goals not just achieving them, but really know them makes for a better business, work environment, and boss, also a better person, mother, father, neighbor, and activist. My goal is to help black families come together and stay together. To learn to face trouble head on, to overcome obstacles that they come to, and jump hurdles they encounter. To love, pass the physical and enjoy the mental, to join in the spiritual and touch the soul. To reunite the village and communize the unreached the lonely souls. To rejuvenate the weary and idolize the helpers.
We can only tolerate so much before our tolerance level have reach a level of no return but with God’s help, we can reach a level where we can tolerate anything as long as it’s for our people. I mean why not, we’ve tolerated all “society” gives or shall I say throw at us. We have endured their shit for over 400 plus years but have a level when it come to our own kind, please are we serious!
The only reason “society” have the power is because we give it to them, or so they think. The real fact is we as black hold the real power. The power of spending, building, giving, sharing, and taking. We spend over fifteen billion dollars a year in this country and they get rich from it, so if we stop spending on what they have then they will feel the pain. No more movies, no more cable, no more cell phones, no more crime, no more corner stores, no more name brand clothes, or tennis, no more cars, no more drugs, and no more dinning out/partying. They will feel the pain and know of the struggle. They would know of our pain and hurt. They would have to work themselves.
If we built our own banks for just us, made our ow movies just for us, communicated face to face, designed our own clothes and shops just for us, cars and grow our own food. We ourselves would feel better, think better, do better, and recycle our money through our communities. We would stabilize our families and increase the power of black thus decreasing the crime rate and the power “society” has over us. We would finally be able to stand as a nation; a very proud, productive, and creative nation.
Stability is what we don’t have even those who have jobs. Those jobs aren’t secured, they think we are expendable. Make sure we are irreplaceable by being our own bosses and creating job for our own kind. What we know is that it won’t happen overnight but with everyone joining in and putting forth the effort this could happen within three to ten years? We ourselves have a lot of work to do on us for us to make it happen.
It’s not a hard task if we revert to our natural roots! Not physically but mentally to take pride in our color and what we have to offer as a proud race. Yes, I know you aren’t giving up on your cell phones but we as black need black own and black operated businesses that feeds our needs. Our communities have suffered long enough, I remember when all the corner stores in East Baltimore was black owned and operated. There wasn’t another culture or race that own another store in East Baltimore. Now that’s all that own the same stores I use to buy my family’s goods from. However, the carryout was owned by the Asians but that was for those like myself, who ate Yakami, Lo Mein, Egg Foo Yung or other Chinese cuisine; even the bars were owned by black. Where did our status go? Why did we as black fall so hard? Because, those who couldn’t do for themselves didn’t want for those who could to continue with their success and “society” helping hand didn’t help at all. For a matter of fact, they hurt the most by forcing crack cocaine and heroin into the city and then started a campaign for the war on drugs. Are you serious and black people fell for the hype? While “society” was pulling the wool over our eyes and pushing their drugs harder in our communities, we decided that forcing them down our own people throats, shooting them in their veins, or shoving it in their noses to get rich was the best thing for the neighborhoods. But in all honesty, where are those drug dealers now? Oh, yes in jail, prison, dead, or users themselves. Yes, “society” knew exactly what they were doing we just didn’t have a clue.
It was fast money and that is the problem with black people. We all wanted that fast money, the get rich quick scams, but at what cost it didn’t matter to us. We were suffering and didn’t even know it. We were infecting our own lives and didn’t care because the fast money made everything look different. At least when the dealers ate, I can say the neighborhood ate as well. We have the audacity to think fast money is the best money, but we are slowly learning it isn’t. It’s all comes with a price and sometimes that price is worse than living, death is the not a reward that equals a come up. It is a sentence that equals exactly what it is; death! Now look at our communities in the worse conditions that have ever been in since I can remember.
I see our young children no longer the pushers but as junkies buying prescription drugs from addicts.
First, they gave you a taste then when your power got big, they pulled the plug away and threw you in their prisons. Making more money off you and all the while this was their plans from the beginning. Either way they made money off us whether it was selling it, buying it, or locking you up for it. Until this day they still profit what they can from the black communities.
We lost our way because everything flashy looks good. Plus, it looked good against the poverty we were facing. Somehow, when the flash come, we missed the picture behind the glitter and gold. We couldn’t see the future for the present looked appealing. Now look where we are still scrapping for scraps and begging for more. Why when we had it all, by supporting the black businesses, that was already established? We missed our boat but the one thing I do know is boats and ship must dock to load and unload. When it our turn, remember our best features we have is communication. If we band together verbally, then our psyche tells us to do it mentally, and then physically.
Sending you all love and kisses. #GoddessLove
