Through struggle, you build character. Not only do you build character but you end up finding others that are in the same struggle that can help get you through…
Becoming older and being more conscious about the world around me, I am starting to realize the amount of people, preferably young adults, that are on the same path of consciousness that I am. Along with the positivity, I begin to look at the negative, RATCHET, inappropriateness that is leading the Black community in its downfall beginning with our youth.
Not only are people beginning to take a stand and ignore things like TV shows that exploit African Americans, or the framing and shaping of the stereotypical Black person, but we are teaching and and talking about the REAL issues… and whats REALLY going on.
Granted, we are not as radical as our great leaders in the 60’s, but i must argue that we are getting there.
The rise of Black intellects will be the revolution. Not only will folks become conscious and informed about issues, but sharing knowledge and building leaders will be a trend.
We are getting closer to our liberation, I feel it coming.
