If you notice, on all Social Media , Facebook , Twitter, Instagram, even Yotube,
there is a lock down on any convo, about National state to state Black unity,
or trying to achieve it ,
National Collective Economics at a time when we need it the most
and creating a National Poltical Agenda
The anniversary of Malcolm's assassination was 5 days ago,
but when you look at the internet, it seems that any convo, sustained convo,
or focus on restoring this particular legacy; seems to have been assassinated
since the past 2 years!
Hi Ndugu ... Welcome!
I don't think I've had the pleasure of speaking with you, but I am glad you're here and thanks for joining us.
How is Trump or anyone keeping you from having the conversations you want to have?
We do have lots of pro black conversations here at destee, we have been doing it a long time.
In fact, when I first got on the Internet many years ago, I could not find a place where black people gathered together and discussed black issues. I was able to find 2 or 3 of us, here and there, on sites that did not cater to us, and at the time I was happy for that. Eventually though, it was not enough. Like you, I thought, such a shame that we do not have what I think is needed (a respectful environment for us, where we could come together, discuss, share, commune, etc.). Folk were building all kinds of sites but none that catered specifically to us. I ultimately came to the conclusion that I could cry about what another is not doing and wait for them to do it, or I could do it myself.
All that we (destee.com) are, we will never be able to satisfy everyone's wants and needs. Some people have come here and found us lacking, not doing what they think should be done, and I tell them like I had to learn, that we (they) must be and do the things wanted instead of waiting for someone else to do it. If it is something you can do here, our platform is available, discuss whatever you would like. As long as its done respectfully, the chances are slim that you will be hindered. If we are not the right platform, I encourage you to build that platform. Prior to starting destee.com, I knew nothing of such things (building web sites). I have learned all along the way. If I can do it, you can too.
You seem to have lots of passion and desire to see what is not visible to you, and I say channel that energy into creating what your mind's eye envisions. It may yield you much greater than you ever imagined. If you were to invest in such, building your own site that did exactly what you wanted it to do, you would grow to be much like facebook, twitter, etc., protective of your effort and not let anyone come in and make it be something other than you envisioned.
I ask again, how is Trump (or any) keeping you from discussing what you want?
Much Love and Peace.
