So why do you suppose we don't do those beautiful things that you have so beautifully laid out? Evidently it is not that simple! Especially when you consider that much depends on economics, and we are living in the worst economic depression since 1930. Some economists maintain that this one is worse than the one in 1930. You really should study and understand oppression and exploitation, and what it does to its victims before you pontificate.

And why do you suppose that those beautifully laid-out beautiful things are not being done every day? Who told you they weren't? I know for a fact that they are being done. Believe it or not, there are successful relationships.. and friendships.. and businesses.. where folks do right be each other. Regardless of what your TV.. Youtube.. and Worldstar highlights, its happening all around you.

And listen.. Anybody that thinks that black people had an economic depression in 1930, doesn't know very much about black people in America. You must have no idea about the collective socio-economic context of black people circa 1930. Context is truly everything.. and within the context of black life in the 1930s.. the economic depression didn't make much difference. I remember either reading somewhere.. or hearing an interview.. where an older black man said something along the lines of: "the only difference during the depression was that we could eat at
the soup kitchens. Cause prior to that there was nothing like that available to black people".

So economists can maintain whatever they want, but before you apply whatever they're maintaining to us, you need to adjusts it for context.. meaning you need to learn what the condition and position of our people was at the time in question before you make any great leaps regarding meaning.. and significance.. and definitely before accusing others of ignorance.

Context is everything.

Now how about bringing this back around to the subject at hand: The black family unit.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
