Awakening from niggahood/niggatude IS one our greatest challenges in 21st century. We have become dependent on others to find solutions to problem when they are apart of the problem. We depend on those in leadership who don't want to"rock the boat" within the establishment because they benefit from our dysfunctionality, our codependency, destabilization. Some of us in fact have been preconditioned by many factors. But it up to us to alter the mindset collectively. We have to establish a unifying objective. our survival as a people should be the greatest unifer but gunfortunately it isnot the cohesive motivator that brings us together-I am my brother"s keeper should be the unifying mantra. We should be as upbeat and driven about our collective WELL being as we were for electing Obama as president. We should be just as protective of Our money, economy, children as when those from the "rightwing" verbally attack Obama. The feeling of helplessness has been indoctrinated to into small pockets within our populations due to ignorance or laziness- especially with the young. When a war for survival is in progress everybody has an assignment. Everybody must be held accountable. In nature, the lives of bees and ants is most interesting example.
