The AFTER...?

The AFTER...?
Posted By: Ivan Butcher II on July 08, 2020

The BLACK-OUT DAY of JULY 7, 2020!

When you look at our conditions here, World-wide, I feel like I am (we as a Family are) living in a "Dog Day Afternoon," episode of the Twilight Zone.

If you consider how our Family is portrayed in the Corporate media around the World, it is no wonder that we as a people, especially those of us speaking different languages, do not identify with each other, The Curse of Babel.

Divide and Conquer

Instead of working together, most of them in the positions to make a difference seem to be looking out for themselves, the old "Crabs in a Barrel Syndrome."

Now, our so called Black Elitist need to stop trying to Fitting-In, "What they don't realize that They are serious when They say, that no matter which ethnic group referring, we all look alike to THEM?"

Unity is Progress!

We African / Americans are a family and it is time that we begin working toward our own family's interests. The idea that, "Charity begins at home" is not separatism nor selfishness. The neglecting of ourselves and relying on others to provide for us nurtures that negative perception other families have of our community.
