I was up thinking about the recent camera captures of the routine murders of our people. I could not sleep. I even found myself thinking about the guerrilla, and how they blamed the mother.smh at the power folk have and more at the power we give them. I know that lessons will repeat themselves until you learn them. It is my observation that the common thread is not what we have been angrily and emotionally ranting about ; that is tooooo easy. None of these brothers had wages, they only had profits and they were resistors by their very nature,entrepreneurs. None of them were any value to the very system we think we can fix. We are never going to have value if we are waiting on being valued by a society whose system is rigged in capitalism and classism and so many other isms we choose to be victims of. No values can be elected. You either have them or you don’t.
What all of these brothers had in common was an illegal hustle that has always been against the slave and black codes. There is nothing new here. We know it because no one is alarmed. This is an ongoing open ritual from an open enemy. Whether it was Trayvon appearing to be vagrant or Alton illegally engaging in commerce, Niggers are not allowed to engage in these activities for the record. Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Sisters we are not immune. You try talking to these code enforcers the way you talk to black men and you will surely be made an example. Try thinking you matter because you graduated in their system or think you are better because you choose to do without their system you will surely be made an example.
We have to take some responsibility here. We want to be the Nigger, negro, the black, the African American, the feminist, the people of color of law. We want to be successful in the U.S democratic paradigm. We go bankrupt trying to go to their schools, we work for companies not run by us, we send our children to their schools to be taught to do the same thing, hate ourselves and start the cycle all over again. We abandoned reconstruction during its climax and literally bought into integration where the black dollar matters and never the lives.
We have not tried to make the black dollar matter. We have not tried to nationalize that dollar. We have not tried to stay together without the system or separate without the system. We have not tried raising our children with both parents. We have not tried to be disciplined to not even get into a situation where the aforementioned IS NOT an option. We have not tried to make a sacrifice and just stop showing allegiance to these companies by stop working for them. We have not tried to pull our assets out of their schools. We have not tried turning off the television. We have not tried eating clean. We have not tried to grow enough food in our backyard to sustain our families. We have not tried to learn self defense. We have not tried to create our own militias. We have not tried to know civics and law.
We have not tried to get off the plantation. We are only trying to be more comfortable. We cannot fix this system and we should not put any more effort into doing so as we are foreign to it. It is a fiction that only exist in reality because we give it our human powered resource. We can fix ourselves. We just have to try one person, one family,one collective at a time and we are going to have to come to the realization that we are going to have to do it on our own. We are going to have to change our priorities. We can no longer want what is marketed to us unless it comes from us. We can no longer settle for privilege. We must claim our rights and we must do it as a unit of many units. ~Abundance Child
