Buy Black on Black Friday
Buy Black on Black Friday
do we lack the economic vitality of Chinatown, Mexico town, white town,
gay town? And yet Black America is the 16th richest nation in the
world, but most of our money goes out the hood to feed and enrich
others. When will we do for self and kind? Of course first there must be
love of self and kind that is sorely lacking at this hour, although the
economic situation is, as Elijah demanded, forcing black unity.
Families are now living together who used to hate each other, but
circumstance is forcing them to get along.
We cannot demand
others give us economic justice when we don't give ourselves such. Why
should the white man hire you when you don't want to hire you, you
rather hire a Mexican, yet you would not think of going to Mexican town
to ask for a job, nor would you go to Chinatown, white town or gay town.
Yet from coast to coast Mexicans are working in Soulfood restaurants
and other black businesses because you won't acquire the discipline to
hold down a job. You want to tell the boss what to do. Smoke yo blunt
and talk on the cell phone at work. One day you will help self and kind
first, then help others.
Some of you declined to purchase my
$100.00 book, The Wisdom of Plato Negro, Volumes I and II, yet you who
went to college bought numerous hunid dollar books that drove you
insane, that have you yet addicted to the virus of white supremacy. At
least my hunid dollar book was written in an attempt to restore your
sanity. Furthermore, the entire contents of the book is available for
free on my blog.
You want economic justice, stop spending your
money with those who hate you, who won't employ you. Are you some kind
of trick sucker? Get a grip on your mind and fly right as the old folks
used to say. If you boycotted Black Friday by shopping with your own
kind or simply staying at home, America would ask what do you people
want? If you boycotted the shops, stores and malls during the holidays,
America would beg you to say what you people want!
Why are you spending $200.00 for tennis shoes that cost 50 cents to make in China.
what do you want, Hamlet, or shall we call you Othello's children! Do
you want a job or can you use the mind God gave you to create your own
job? Don't you see that even if you possess the skills for jobs in the
present era, you are not wanted. This is not entirely a racial matter
but a matter of the filthy, greedy, blood sucking capitalist system you
want to be part of. Imagine, even with high unemployment, the
corporations are doing fine, making mega profits with bonuses.
you are unemployed and possibly homeless since your good job was
outsourced to India and China, and you were a victim of the sub prime
loan scam. Of course the sub prime pyramid scheme shall ultimately
backfire in the face of the capitalists as we see in France, England,
Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain. And yes, ultimately it shall hit
America. The shit ain't hit the fan in America yet. Wait until they do
title searches on all the foreclosed properties that the new owners
attempt to purchase. Yes, they shall indeed be toxic securities,
Think of all the black wealth that has gone
with the wind, all the real estate blacks accumulated from sweat, blood
and tears. The little inheritance our ancestors and elders acquired is
gone because we were greedy and did not guard against being deceived, or
did not exercise the dictum buyer be aware.
And so, in the
Sisyphean tradition, we begin again the climb up the hill with the rock
in hand. We should consider establishing micro-loan banks to help our
people out of poverty as people are doing around the world. We must
become entrepreneurs and do for self. There is no other way out of this
conundrum unless we, in the manner called revolution, seize the
institutions that have stolen our wealth and divest them in the name of
the people, then share the wealth, feeling no sorrow for the blood
suckers of the poor, the greedy capitalist swine and their running dogs.
