What I've said for a long time about many things including education, black on black crime, and so many opportunities that are available. But instead we are too quick to use excuses and catch phrases as to why we don't. We want to now be "upset and fearful" of police and scream #blacklivesmatter
but we are the biggest threat to ourselves. Our lack of economic empowerment and as a whole being the biggest consumers of products shows where our focus really is. We blindly follow a polical party that dangles carrots with empty promises of help and caring. When in reality they are no different and just use us in a different way to stay subject to keep them in power. We allow the media and Hollywood to portray us as criminals, dysfunctional families, and nothing but the worse kind of people. And we watch it and give it life and praise it as great entertainment. To me it's nothing more than modern day black face. We've come a long way but still have a great deal of distance to travel.
