Why would I say that? What I'm about to write is contrary to the official narrative being espoused in the Black community. It's been said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting to get a different result. Yes we have been freed from slavery since December 1865, we are no longer chattel, we are free. Yes, there was The Civil Rights Act of 1964 signed into law by the 2nd racist President named Johnson to enforce what the 13th, 14th and 15th amendment gave us Constitutionally. But the Democrat LBJ stated and I quote" after I pass this legislation into law , I'll have those Niggers voting democratic for the next 100 years". Yes by his words there was a contrived plan to keep Blacks down. Yes, Bill Clinton instituted 3 strikes and you're out program, effectively tripling the Black prison population. Yes we have been hoodwinked, bamboozled and led astray by the Deep State, the government handouts, by our leadership, the media and the church singing "we shall overcome" see faith without works is dead.
But we already know that we have instituted one physical plantation for the new Virtual Plantation of our minds. Wasn't there a slogan" that a mind is a terrible thing to waste". We already know LBJ spoke into the atmosphere and we continue to do the same thing over and over again expecting to get a different result. The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 12:2-3, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind." He is point blank telling us it's our attitude and mindset that needs to change.
Then if that's the case then it's not the White establishment foot pressed firmly on our necks that hold us back but our attitude, mindset and the prevailing narrative that needs to change starting with our antiquated educational system. In our educational system our kids study subjects they will never use in preparing for a world that no longer exists and is changing rapidly. Today the most dangerous advice given to kids is go to college to get a good, safe and secure job. The reality these days working in corporate America there is a good chance you will be pushed out of your job before you retire. Even workers in their 50's are experiencing multiple job loses in their lifetime because they are not familiar with technology and how fast it is moving. Even people in their 30's are falling behind the technology curve. Now back to we are not changing their minds, Then why are we not changing their minds? because they don't respect us. They don't respect us because we don't own our destiny. I have been concerned by the lack of financial education in our school system. Many of our kids have credit cards before they leave high school yet they have never had a course in money, how to invest it. how to turn it, how to make it, how to be a entrepreneur and have others working for you or basic financial literacy on what is real money and how it works in the real world. I don't want my children trapped in the rat race of the virtual plantation in a job they can't stand and know nothing about money except work hard for it instead of making money you earn work for you. See there are rules that the rich play by and there are rules that the other 95% of the population play by which they learn in school and at home. Let me say this, the way technology and the business world is moving exponentially; then how can the educational system teach subjects that it does not know? Let me also say scholastic skills are important but so are financial skills.
In conclusion the old saying is you can lead horse to water but you can't make him drink, in the poem " Invictus" it states " It matters not how strait the gate, how charged the punishment the scroll, I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul," the information is out here, there are even mentors who will give back, we are unconquered and undefeated because we are still standing despite what has been done and continues to be done, if we want to change their minds about us, our narrative needs to change, our mind needs renewing, speak into the atmosphere of what you want, we need to be doers and not just consumers asking for handouts.
