What if we already have the power we need to put an end to the madness and make Black Lives Matter? I’m talking reparations. It always comes around to this. But typical approaches to reparations consist of demands we don’t have the power to enforce. Let’s talk about a different way…
The reality is that something has got to change, right?
Clearly, what we’ve thought we had accomplished isn’t quite accomplished. The system we’ve used to get this far now seems broken. The hopes have been broken of those who depend upon an effective system for overcoming.
So how do we fix this? How do we repair the breach?
If you’ve downloaded your copy of Reparations: The Foundation for Black Power, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t read that guide book, then download your free copy here.
After all the racial flare-ups in America, it’s important that we consider the end goal of any effort. The stakes are too high for us to keep darting around like squirrels from one objective to the next, right? I hope you’d agree with that…
What we’ve seen time and time again is that “the Black man has no rights that the White man is bound to respect.” (The More You Know…) And White America doesn’t have to respect our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because we aren’t independent enough to MAKE them.
And we seem to be okay with that power dynamic…
Reparations is KEY to Making Black Lives Matter!
If Black Lives are going to matter, then we have to get clear on what we believe about the value of Black Lives. And that is real reparations.
So, when you hear my explanation/definition of reparations how do you respond?
