    Man sometimes I feel so hopeless especially with what I see here in NY. Our people are not really interested in progressing truthfully. I work in corporate america and can tell you first hand a lot of corporate blacks are NOT interested in starting up their own businesses. You make 90,000 a year...great...what do you own? What assets do you have? People get so caught up and spend on nonsense as you guys had mentioned, but we never think of the future, it is quite sad. Also, this rap shit needs to be significantly cutback along with this other entertainment nonsense.

    That is a major problem. A lot of our people don't feel they have "made" until their working up under whites in corporate America. They move into these suburbs that are predominately whites and ultimately looked upon as guest in these neighborhoods and in the workplace. I never fully understood the mentality of blacks who are so content with working up under whites and not with starting their own thing. I guess it has to be either natural or instilled in you at an early age. This is why it is so important to nourish the entrepreneurial side of black children.

    And yeah I agree this rap shit needs to either undergo tremendous change or be cut off completely. It serves no benefit and harms more than it helps.

    Unite, enlighten and uplift.

    Build each other up instead of always trying to break our brother and sister down. That is step 1 to breaking the conditioning. It goes deep but it can be reversed and corrected through us if we utilize what we were blessed with.

    How do we get to the top? It is not a matter of trying to get there but a matter of realizing we already hold that position. Our true potential and greatness as Gods and Goddesses walking this earth is overlooked by this standard we often break and lose ourselves trying to live up to in general society, one which was created and designed for us, not by us. The white man's plan from the beginning of time: Strip us of our identity, forbid us to speak our language and celebrate our culture, have these white traditions imposed on us and forget who we are.

    Above all else know thyself. Starting at the root by gaining knowledge and building within knowing our true potential. Taking that "potential" and transforming it into our continuing reality with the awareness that WE don't need to conform, WE weren't meant to and to realize the tables have turned. They need us now, just take a look around; it's everywhere you look, the red, black and green. They're catering more and more to us as a people, the media is a prime example.

    Wake up and live with your eyes wide opened and then we can make a shift in house instead of looking outside for the answers.

    thanks for sharing, what are things you are blessed with empress?

    Its bigger than what a lot of people in here are making it. We need to own conglomerates, but we need to START some: black owned banks, health care, transportation & energy corporations, black owned nonprofits to build the bridges between those that have and those that don't, black owned schools (both formal and trade).


    The problem: this shit takes money and the only places to get money are white owned, quite the conundrum right?


    Look at the abandoned blue collar majority black cities (Detroit & Gary for instance) and these places have been destitute for decades. No jobs for anyone and everything just turned into a playground for dope dealers and gang bangers. All those abandoned steel & auto factories with nothing to replace it, that shit is a damn shame.

    What a bastion of go-getters. Some of you are hilarious. And all people arent going to think alike or follow the same path because they are the same "race". Similar people think similarly. One may be Asian and 1 Black. Check the white house. Everybody aint gon let others in their "community" hold them back no matter how much they want to. Thats the hard to accept reality for some.
