THE TRUTH IS AMERICA:
- Trayvon scenarios have plagued minority America for a long time
- Trayvon scenarios have been black on black as well as white on black, black v. hispanic, black/white v. native American and so on
- We have sat idly and complacently by as the gains that were made in the Civil Rights era have slowly but consistently eroded
- We have allowed our children to fall prey to the affluent traps (uncensored tv, computers, ipods, ipads, games) of the majority culture at the expense of education, morality, respect for elders, community values and respect for self
- We have allowed our children to drop out, fail to aspire to higher education, utilize substances that are premarked self destruct
- YOU SAY, NOT ALL OF OUR CHILDREN ARE THAT WAY, WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS TALKING TO?
- AS LONG AS ANY CHILD IS LEFT BEHIND, DROPS OUT, IS MAIMED, MURDERED.....we ALL HAVE SUFFERED A LOSS!
- We sing 'we shall overcome...' but we act like we already have! UH-UH, WHAT YOU MEAN?
- When is the last time you attended and/ or joined the NAACP? the Urban League? Democratic group?
- When is the last time you signed a petition?
- When is the last time you marched?
- When is the last time you joined hands and walked together children for something that benefitted someone other than yourself?
- When is the last time you voted in a Pastor who was an activist? Tracked the School Board, the City Council? the Board of Supervisors? Supported a black political candidate? Filed to recall a candidate whose conduct was detrimental to minorities?
- When is the last time your church rallied for a REAL cause?
WHEN IS THE LAST TIME WE KICKED UP A LOT OF DUST AND DIRT AND RODE HARD OTHER THAN IN A BLACK RODEO? Time for a change, the truth is AMERICA!
