Tell Me Something Good

When we teach our people about the struggle, let's not make them feel:
or that they have:
a. bad religion
b. bad hair
c. bad clothes
d. stupid ideas
or that we have:
a. the deepest deepness
b. the hippest contacts
c. the shee-it
d. the anti-stupid (did i mention that)
We must accept our people right where they are at. They are already getting dissed, beaten up and torn down, no matter how fabulous or hardcore their persona. We gotta wean our people offa this shit-stem just like a baby from a bottle, slowly and deliberately, while replacing it with what's good and righteous in a loving manner.
My minister/teacher would always address me as "ma'am" while she was imparting great wisdom to me with such tremendous humility. She made my every remark seem genius, that my presence on the planet was necessary. i always left feeling extremely important, and that's how we uplift our people!
Speak truth to the people, but also tell them something good. That one good thing might be the only one good thing they get to hear all day. Something that will quicken their pulsebeat, something to chew on and savor, something to research on their own, something to pass on to someone they meet up with later on.
We're in it to WIN it. We MUST. Our ancestors are depending on us to.
