I’ll tell you what Booker T. Washington, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, Bill Cosby, Frederick Wilson II and Clayton Craddock all have in common….the message of taking personal responsibility for your actions. Or, as my man in the video below said, “responsi-damn-bility.” I hope more people can hear this message, again, because it seems to have been repeated to the masses of black folks for well over 100 years.
We have to take care of our own people. The “Great Society” of LBJ has failed black people. Democrats seem to only want to keep us dependent on all levels of government so that they will vote for them and control us in perpetuity. Maybe the events in Ferguson are the start of another black awakening in America.
I feel it is time to reject the notion that you cannot compete with other people and need a handicap. We have to reject the pop culture of violence death and destruction. Reject the notion that we need a ” black leader” and start thinking for ourselves. Take control of your families and keep “family court” out of your lives at all costs. Speak proper English. Mothers and fathers keep your children by your side and raise them together in the same home. Be faithful to your spouse and reject any notion that the nuclear family is unimportant. Emulate the strong black men and women of generations in the past.
It is time to tell the story of the people who don’t follow the democratic talking points. We all don’t think alike and we want change from within.
Sometimes, we are our own worst enemy.
Take some “Responsi-damn-bility” and let’s make real progress. This is a great video and spot on:
