I'm in the process of searching for a home, but there's one thing that's giving me pause. White people. Why the hell should I stay here and continue to tolerate their racism? Why should I contribute to an economy and a society that doesn't care much, if anything about blacks? Why help them, which essentially gives them more power than they deserve? Secondly, life is too short to fight the same battle that we have been since the country was founded. Right now I'm a bit torn, on whether or not I should setup permanently here in America or just leave.

So, I'm curious, why do we continue to put up with this when we don't have to? Blacks play a significant role in driving the US economy, yet what do we get in return? Why not take our money elsewhere... Curious to hear your reasoning, do we really think that marching is going to change racist people? Is it worth staying here in America, if so why?

Sure, leaving the USA is one option for some African Americans and the reason I say that is because you need money to move and everyone who might want to leave, will find it difficult to if they don't have the resources to make that happen.

And, you had better know that where you're going is a better place for AA's and not assume that just because we may all be Black that we are accepting of each other. And you'd better hope that the country you want to relocate to will have open borders and accept you in masse.


But, for me, why "run away" when we still have some constitutional rights and freedoms that give us an ability to change things where we are? We may not have come here voluntarily, but we built this nation, fought and died for the right to be treated as deserving citizens and to receive equitable treatment. Some of us may not want to give up the fruits of our labor or the labor of our ancestors, or forget those who fought and died for us and whose bones are buried in the very soil that they toiled over and called "home." We have spent generations honing the skill to know our enemies that are brutal but not that smart and I won't give them the satisfaction when they try to make it so unbearable here for us--or so they would like to think--that I would choose to leave. Somehow that smells to me like a coward and that, I'm not.

That's just me...

It's like choosing your own poison; to fight the beast in the center ring or fight on the fringes. For that's the choice because there is not one part of the world the Neo-liberal racist ideology has not touched.......or deserted once there.

Peace,

Learning to navigate life in a white ruled country takes knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Blessed are they that live in the white world without being of the white world. It begins with taking the devil off the planet (which is essentially taking white people out of your focus). When your focus is on you and not on them, you can begin making strides to a better existence. When you allow things to occupy your attention, anyone or anything can be that devil.

You can go anywhere and face discrimination. You can go anywhere and find poverty. You still have to learn how to master them.

Peace

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
