THEY ARE STILL OUR SLAVES
We can continue to reap profits from the Blacks without the effort of
physical slavery. Look at the current methods of containment that hey
use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.
Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once
said, "The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in
a book." We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the
opportunity to read any book on any subject through the efforts of
their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are numerous
books readily available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.com, not
to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid blueprints to
reach economic equality (which should have been their fight all along),
but few read consistently, if at all.
GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the
abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their
Last year they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas, out of their
billion dollars in total yearly income (2.22%).
Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture
we care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it.
primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed. They
continually want more, with little thought for saving or investing.
They would rather buy some new sneaker than invest in starting a
business. Some even neglect their children to have the latest Tommy or
FUBU, And they still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house
them "Status" or that they have achieved their Dream. They are fools!
The vast majority of their people are still in poverty because their
greed holds them back from collectively making better communities.
With the help of BET, and the rest of their black media that often
broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue to
see huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike. Tommy Hilfiger has even
jeered them, saying he doesn't want their money, and look at how the
fools spend more with him than ever before. They'll continue to show
to each other while we build solid communities with the profits from
businesses that we market to them.
SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the
major ways we can continue to contain them. One of their own, Dubois
said that there was an innate division in their culture. A "Talented
Tenth" he called it. He was correct in his deduction that there are
segments of their culture that has achieved some "form" of success.
However, that segment missed the fullness of his work. They didn't read
that the "Talented Tenth" was then responsible to aid The Non-Talented
Ninety Percent in achieving a better life.
Instead, that segment has created another class, a Buppie class that
looks down on their people or aids them in a condescending manner. They
will never achieve what we have. Their selfishness does not allow them
to be able to work together on any project or endeavor of substance.
When they do get together, their selfishness lets their egos get in the
way of their goal. Their so-called help organizations seem to only want
their name without making any real change in their community.
They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels,
and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best
speakers, not to the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness?
They steadfastly refuse to see that TOGETHER EACH ACHIEVES MORE (TEAM).
They do not understand that they are no better than each other because
of what they own, as a matter of fact, most of those Buppies are but
or two pay checks away from poverty. All of which is under the control
our pens in our offices and our rooms.
Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to read,
continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are
their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little
than hold lavish conventions in our hotels. By the way, don't worry
about any of them reading this letter, remember, 'THEY DON'T READ'!!!!
