Nepotism vs Tribalism (1193 hits)

When I ask this question:

 

( Disclaimer: My use of the term White America is not to indict all White Americans of European descent, but to address a false perception to the World that all is racially fine in the USA.) 

 

If and when will White America begin to realize that Black Americans are their only true ally left in the Non-White World?

 

The other destructive  N ...word in America is "Nepotism"!

 

Unless you live in a bubble or you are on a pedestal with your head in the clouds, the Corporate Media is full of bias, disparaging and dishonorable images of all of Black America that is being perpetrated Worldwide; but not including the reported cases of their race based discriminating practices, you are uninformed or you are ingenuous. 

 

In light of the documented, disenfranchising economic condition undermining Black Americans, we African / Americans are a family and it is time that we begin working toward our own family's interests. The idea that, "Charity begins at home" is not separatism nor selfishness. The neglecting of ourselves and relying on others to provide for us nurtures that negative perception other families have of our community.

 

My Reality: The System is and has been trumped up against Us as a People, and this is not an excuse. 

 

I went to Catholic school with the Irish and the Italians in NYC. The Irish were the police capitalizing on the Italian crime syndicate of extortion and the Jewish controlled the courts profiting on the Blacks and Hispanics incarceration for, most times trumped up cases. 

 

The Jewish were also the slum landlords and merchants exploiting and taking full advantage of the plight of the Black communities to enrich their own, after saying all of this, very little has changed since then. 

 

Now, our so called Black Elitist need to stop trying to Fitting-In, "What they don't realize that They are serious when They say, that no matter which ethnic group referring, we all look alike  to THEM?" 

 

Our Black Achievers should return some of their blessings, whether it is wealth and or intellect, and reinvest in the neighborhoods that were abandoned after Affirmative Action

 

I believe it is time for White America to realize we are a Western Hemisphere Tribe, made up of many families, separated by oceans, cultures, customs and religions. 

 

To a lot of the rest of The World, We All are the Ugly Americans!

I feel President Trump will be the best thing that has happened for Black Americans with the realization not to expect any special attention or assistance, and with Ms. Clinton, It would have been business as usual with the Republicans trying to block every effort she would make.

The character of President Obama's efforts has done so much toward the empowerment of our Black Family.

It is hard to imagine what America will be like now he is gone, especially for US!

Now, Obama is out office, we have to do like Harriet Tubman...

I am not the enemy, I come from a different time and a different background, and I have a different perspective on Life and my Purpose.

Being born in the Americas automatically makes me a Native American, regardless of where my parents, grandparents, or ancestors were born, even the indigenous people of the Americas were migrants.

Listening to others telling me how I should classify myself, I am Native American, born and raised.

Now, my born citizenship is of the United States of the Americas, probably long before you were born. I am also an African descendant and my blood runs deep in the Americas from Guyana to Canada. My Y chromosome is White European, like so many other Black American men. Imagine, Obama's race questioned, when he can trace his manhood directly back to Africa.

What I have noticed is that those who feel that they are of pure blood, no matter what race are less tolerant of diversity.

Those like you with all the knowledge and research, since there is no limitation on murder cases, now with documented photos, court and business records that can identify the Victims and their Murderers, this is where the historians and researchers, who love to correct and lecture, could be devoting their efforts in researching out and identify the Murderers and their benefactors for retribution and restitution for their crimes.

You will not reach the Youth or the ill informed by debating History or Religion.

I would agree that this generation will be the hardest to reach because of the fact that their lives have been void of Religious principles. It will be almost impossible to help someone spiritually if they do not realize that they have a Soul.

As a vocational art instructor, my solution has been to offer empowerment through trades for their self-realization. Art was my salvation, I had the need to (rebel) express myself and once I realized that if I want respect I had to give respect.

As an educator, before you will get disenchanted / disenfranchised youth to listen to what you have to share, you have to show them your human side,  they don't want to hear political rhetoric.
 
What will make the difference is if those productive men, still there in our communities, become the father / male role model to help others with the training, the resources, the guidance and leadership needed to discourage anti-social behavior.

I am 70, you and I know who we are, you sound because of your knowledge that you are superior, as an educator, I have learned many lesson of Humility. No one will listen to a chastising

I am a Pessimist about Humanity becoming any more Humane, especially when Harmony cannot even be achieved in our own Families.

Using a Biblical story as an example, if you consider how the Black race is portrayed in corporate media around the World, it is no wonder why we as a people, especially those of us speaking different languages, do not identify with each other, The Curse of Babel.

Pride

Mr. Powell, you have expressed your narcissism, your self-obsession, self regard, you sound and remind me of the old men, I grew-up listening to growing up in Harlem, during the '50s and 60's.

In my eyes, you demonstrated to me, you with all of your Knowledge, and I said this with contempt, because I do not view you as being wise. Your knowledge is wasted on me, your responses have offered nothing but ridicule, and offered nothing uplifting or empowering, to what I feel to be a serious topic.

I don't subscribe to sharing all the personal information like the youth are doing, but I do encourage to promote and to advertise. This is how most successful businesses are marketing their goods, products and services and the wealthy politicians are using the internet to campaign. But too many seniors are ignoring it and the young are squandering the privilege, which one day access will cost. This informational tool is vital to the rewriting of our history leveling the challenges we face as Black people.

To ignore the power offered by communicating through the social media websites, reminded me of the old saying, "If you want to hide something from a Negro put it in a book." Today, the internet should be our method of sharing information just like how our ancestors used the beating of the drums and the sending of smoke signals to communicate among themselves.

Every one of us knows someone who has accomplished a goal, achieved recognition, promoting and marketing their goods and services, that we can be using the internet for its free Advertising platform.

You clearly have demonstrated that you would practice Nepotism, serving only those who followed your beliefs. I believe-in and live by the ripple effects of sharing with those around me, not the trickle-down effect of letting others bare the bulk of sacrifice.

Religion

Like I have stated, "You will not reach the Youth or the ill informed by debating History or Religion."

I feel Religion is and has been the blight on mankind, especially when what you believe does not allow you to respect another. The shear hypocrisy of a professed, wealthy, Believers stepping over the needy and hungry to go into their House of Worship is another serious issue.

I feel and believe that if more people / believers got up off their knees and actual spend that time helping the needy, they would be more in the Grace of The Creator.

I have listened to both Muslims and Christians defending the fact that these people and these kinds of injustices are not the teachings of the Bible / Koran, and that They do not represent all Muslims or Christians / Believers.

My question to all Believers, Muslims and Christian, how can or why would anyone believe you, when this is allowed to happen, while you stand, watch and film such Sins / Crimes on to Humanity?

Like Christ, I listened, I learned and I developed my own perspective of The CREATOR / The SUPREME BEING and my purpose in life. This is why there are many authors of books on who and why We Are.

I AM not one of your followers!


We have been blessed with two gifts from The CREATOR / SUPREME BEING that I cherish, the Breath of Life and Free Will.

Who is The CREATOR, you would criticize?

For me, Time + Space + Energy (in its infancy evolved into) = Creation / Life

So, why would I listen to your dictates/?

This is and has been our problem as a people, no respect or tolerance for each others opinions.

You and your philosophy is outdated and will not resonate today in the BLACK communities, in time, we will see whose message, your or mines, will be best received and empowering.

Old Man, Wake-Up!
