I agree with you sentiments completely.<quoted text>
You are on the right track for sure, with that message. However, a couple of pieces are missing from the puzzle.
Indian and Chinese people do more than just love their identity and race. They come from proud, ancient civilizations that revere learning and scholarship.
Millions of Indian and Chinese students go crazy for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics - and do so without shame or guilt. To pursue knowledge is an honor.
But in Chicago, African-American honors students get shot to death by African-American hoodlums, thugs and gangsters:
And when the bright ones are not being shot down by low-IQ thugs, they are being laughed at for "talking white" or being "punk-azz nerds."
The deep cultural respect and esteem for knowledge that other advanced people of color have, is often not present in violence-soaked African or Diaspora communities. We have to be truthful to ourselves about this.
Might i also add that Africa was an ancient civilization lets not forget Egypt that revered learning and scholarship. And still does. Lets be fair to Ghana, Nigeria and Uganda
Because the black people that went to U.S.A and U.K to better their lives..........and go back to Africa and the Caribbean.
FORGOT the plan!
Do you know that the people in AFRICA are waiting for the educated and skilled black people or should i say decendants of africa to come back with those skills and build AFRICA into the EMPIRE that it once WAS??
And we are letting them down by small mindedness by being on YOU-TUBE!
This is why i keep saying and will keep saying it.
The white man has disarmed the black man.
I really do respect and admire Indian and Chinese men.
I really do wonder what proverb they would come up with regarding black men running to their former slave masters daughter?
I am ready to laugh so any suggestions would be welcomed please!
