I have a question; does any Black person out there believe that he or she is successful because they have overcome the odds of White America’s system?

If you do, then you obviously believe the system is a level playing field for all, now is it or is it not?

In other words, if White America does not favor you, would you be successful, regardless? If so, then how do you explain racism?

Incidentally, to a minimal extent, racism is naturally practice in nature, when one party depends on another party for its survival, that racism is practiced even to a greater extent.

Do you think that if Ms. Oprah Winfrey was not liked and favored by White Americans for the most part, would she be as successful as she is?

What say you?

Hello Jen,

Let me move across the landscape slowly with you, that nothing be missed.

I will never ask more than two questions at a time as a way of pushing back at you, if I disagree.

Firstly, who do you suppose is responsible for this system, and creating this system, as well, White America, Black Americans, Chinese-Americans or some other Americans?

Secondly, do you suppose that you may have fell through the cracks that most other Blacks are caught in the net?

Please explain, besides giving a yes or a no response.

What say you?

..."Firstly, who do you suppose is responsible for this system"...
Brother Harry... we all are responsible for this system as Americans. Instead of allowing the system to remain as it is, Why don't we all who thinks it's unfair do something about other than talk about it?

..."Secondly, do you suppose that you may have fell through the cracks that most other Blacks are caught in the net?"...

I don't understand this question. What do you mean by "fall through the cracks". This is a term used for people who somehow haven't received the help that they needed and therefore have been a victim of the negative outcomes. If this is what you mean, I haven't fallen through any cracks.

I consider myself to be a part of the American dream. Many times in my life people of various ethnic back grounds including my own attempted to put me in a box due to stereotypes for which I didn't fit. I was a young success story...a product of a single parent home who didn't fall through the cracks who happened to graduate the top of my high school class, who happened to be able to go to the one of the largest Universities in South Carolina, who happened to graduate from that very large University at the top of her Nursing Class... need I go further?

I think I will go further who defied every obstable placed before me. I bought my 1st house at the age of 24. I bought my 1st car at the age of 26 which was nice. I reached back into my community to try and help others who would allow me, but they all thought like you brother. They are the ones who have fallen through the crack with their "destructive thinking". We all must help ourselves inorder to help others.

I don't find this line of questioning useful for the betterment of Blacks in America.

The question should probably be broken down to share of wealth compared to the Caucasian entity. Since the inception of our sojourn in America the total gross net worth of Blacks in America has been half of one percent. Therefore Blacks in America need to find a way to unify their collective wealth to invest either here or overseas and continue well into the future in regards to saving and investing in commercial entities.
We all know that Caucasian America is not our friend. The so-called Black leadership needs to go over to China and Japan and ask those business leaders why they are so successful?

Hello Ms. Jen,

I would agree with you that we are all Americans, but not all Americans are responsible for this system. Take a notice that when we crack the American egg, different Americans spills out of the eggshell. For instance, Black Americans, White Americans, Asian Americans, etc. are the Americans within the egg.

Now, it is difficult for me logically to accept that Black Americans are responsible for the system when they never designed and instituted this system, especially when the system deliberately works against them. Do you feel that there is something wrong with my difficulty to accept that all Americans are responsible for this system?

In addition, tonight, CNN is presenting its second documentary of, “Black in America.” I would suppose that there is a reason why there is not a documentary of, White in America. I think the reasons are that multiples of problems exist with, Black in America that is counterproductive to Blacks. However, the same does not exist with, White in America. Consequentially, Black in America could not possibly be responsible for a system that works against them, even though they think they are responsible and can work within the system to change things.

So, please tell me again do you really think that Black Americans are responsible for this system?

Do you not think it is about time that Blacks in America seriously consider becoming a sovereign people or have complete independence from White America on a portion of this continent that we could call our very own country with open borders? What if something like this would have been, would you be excited?

Now, what falling through the cracks mean, is to be lost or be forgotten within a system, which implies a negative understanding to the idiom. Therefore, I stand corrected by you. You, my sister, for the most part have not fallen through the cracks while many of us have, since we are lost in jails and penitentiaries and forgotten about in a poor public school system. But, especially in the system at large which practices racism and prejudice in the banking industry, hospital care and business institutions against Blacks across-the-board.

Again, do you not suppose that the problems that have existed since we existed in White America would suddenly evaporate if we were a sovereign people on a portion of this continent to pursue Life, Liberty, Happiness and Prosperity for ourselves? Because right now Black Americans are entirely dependent upon White Americans for all of our needs, including the American dream that you consider yourself a part.

Am I right or am I wrong?

Hello Mr. Jeremy Hasan Ziglar,

You said this, “The question should probably be broken down to share of wealth compared to the Caucasian entity.”

I think Mr. Jeremy; you need to understand it starts with the entity that owns the real estate of America. White American people, owns this country, the same as the French people, owns France and the British people owns England.

In essence, you believe the solution that the Caucasian White American people should share their wealth with Black Americans, who were once their slaves and theoretically speaking, we still are since we were purchased as you would purchase a cow from a livestock auction.

The mindset that we ought to have and will soon develop is the desire to become sovereign or gain our complete independence on a portion of this continent that we could call our very own country with open borders from White America. We need an entity greater than White Americans to truly set us free.

Without becoming a sovereign people there will be no end to CNN documentary of, “Black in America.” or the NAACP or even the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Sovereignty is our only permanent solution ever to become a real people in this world.

Am I right or am I wrong?

What say you?

Hello Ms. Robinson,

Yes, a Black architect designed the nation’s capital of Washington, DC. However, that is no consolation for our sovereignty on a portion of this continent that we can call our very own country with borders.

Do you not ever want to see Black Americans completely on our own that we may pursue Life, Liberty, Happiness, and Prosperity on a portion of this continent?

If you do not, then what it is you are passing on to your children, except a slave mentality? Should you not pass on more than a desire for an equal education and better banking practices equal with the White customers?

What say you?

Harry: I agree that we should be a sovreign nation, however the majority of the Blacks in America don't want to part from their White Slave Master. Therefore we need to work with what we have. Your notion is noble, but the reality is very difficult to achieve!

Hello Jeremy,

Yes, I realize that the majority of Black Americans do not want to part from White America. However, that should not be a reason for us, who knows better to go along with them under the idea of working with what we have.

I know it may be difficult to convince you that our time have come since there have been so many before me, who said the same thing. But, I am telling you, our situation is going to change towards everything that I have been saying.

We are going to inherit a portion of this continent that we could call our very own country, with borders. The real difficulty, which is our collateral to God, is simply to desire our sovereignty as an entire people.

Therefore, the difficulty is to get the gang bangers, the rich and famous among us, the educated and ignorant, the clergies and activists, the young and old, etc., to understand that our future forecast or destiny is sovereignty or complete independence from White America that we may pursue Life, Liberty, Happiness, and Prosperity in our own way.

Our sovereignty is going to happen anyway but the more who realized it based on my communicating with them, as I am with you, we will be better prepare to receive our portion of this continent.

Sovereignty is our only permanent solution, and no other solution would make us a real people in this world and simultaneously resolve all the problems that CNN documentary of Black in America depict.

If you understand this as much as I do, you will see for yourself that anything from the greatest minds among us you will easily be able to show whom ever that only sovereignty is feasible.

What say you?

Blacks built, and may I say with out pay ,our capitol of Washington, D.C and built it on a Native-American burial ground...a gigantic NO, NO by their culture...another violation of too many civil rights and rules of our Constitution that will be corrected in time...
