Being a highly intuitive person has taught me to take people at face value, and to always rely upon my gut instinct. What you see sometimes is really what you get. Therefore, you have to learn how to make sound decisions based upon your own intuition. Sometimes, when you recognize situations that are potentially dangerous for you, it is best to avoid the situation. If you never rely upon your inner self, you’ll find yourself making bad choices, which will ultimately work against you.
Based on the moral fabric of our society, I no longer feel safe when dealing with the general public. In Atlanta, there are very little social programs that provide services to those with a history of mental illness. Therefore, the criminally insane are finding themselves behind bars at the county and city jails awaiting release only to return to the only life they know, which is fighting for their own basic survival. Like the Vandals and Visigoths of old, they plunder, rape, robe, and murder. Most black males today are the new Vandals and Visigoths. They are not strong enough to be future leaders and providers. They cannot even provide for themselves. While we continue to coddle and make excuses for young, criminally insane black males walking within our midst, many go about their daily routine living in fear of being raped, stabbed, robbed, and murdered every day. You can’t even walk down the street without feeling a sense of doom. Most of our young males are too weak and bitchified to be the natural leaders and providers they are supposed to be.
The gay male is not our problem, but the bitchified black male is a disgrace to the generations that came before us.
The qualities of leadership are not always wrapped up in a title. Your degree doesn’t naturally make you a leader. The leader carries oneself honorably. The leader is not perfect. However, the leader is ever vigilant of those who would cause harm, and is protective of his or her children. The leader inspires others to personal and/or collective greatness. The leader fights to maintain his/her freedom and dignity even if it means overthrowing the established order of things. Within the black community, there are far too many self-appointed leaders that don’t possess a shred of human dignity, and they are more a liability than an asset to the members of their community. No wonder your sons and daughters are dying indiscriminately at the hands of others. You place your faith in the wrong leaders expecting good results, but they are useless to the black community.
In Chicago, shooting deaths among black males are an everyday occurrence, which leads me to question, where are the true black leaders in that city? Often, many black people look outside themselves for leadership or a personal savior? They look to Jesus or Muhammad or President Obama to save them from their miserable lives. But when will they save themselves?
The young black males of my generation brag to their peers and anyone else who would listen about spending time in jail and prison. This is the ultimate badge of shame and degradation that any human being should never willingly subject himself to. But somehow, the young black male has turned his own slavery against himself, and has willingly accepted a lesser role in society. This, to me, is the ultimate failure of the black man.
At least, have enough dignity to reject your own slavery!
You must understand that we as a people will always have enemies. But the young black male has become his own worst enemy. Many of you don’t have anything to contribute to the advancement of black people worldwide. Many of you are a walking blight upon nature. You have no usefulness to the black community, and therefore, you are not what the true definition of a man entails. You might as well be dead.
Since when has the hip-hop culture become black African culture in America? Why have the Americanized African man and woman allowed Europeans to define black African culture?
The problem with American-born black people is there are far too many who are too weak to define their own true identity. Many of you don’t know who you are, because you have allowed society to define who you are. Many walk around with an air of invincibility, very controlling, very haughty, and you pretend to be on top of the world. But you have no real power, which is why you feel the constant need to control others. Black arrogant pricks on the job are black people’s Achille’s Heel.
