THE NEGRO VS THE NIGGA

My mentor and I had a conversation a few weeks ago on Negroes. He said back when he was a Negro he went to a segregated elementary school, He also said that was a time when the elementary school principal lived 4 doors down from his grandmother and school. This was a time when school teachers along with his family attended the same church. Back in the day there were a strict code of ethics.

Fast forward to the 70′s, his school was inter-graded. There is an old saying, “be careful what you ask for, you just might get it!” When he arrived at the new school, the principal nor the teachers had no clue to who he or his grandmother were, to be frank they did not care.

I’m sure at the time he was thinking, “Now this is true freedom!” Freedom to skip class without his grandmother ever finding out, run around with the wrong crowd, smoke and talk back to teachers as well. He finally got a taste of that cookie, needless to say guidance, direction, and purpose went out the back door!

Hearing his story got me to thinking about our lost ones of today. If we had the Negro guidance like my mentor was/is to me, we would not have lost our way.

The Negro lost it’s fight when crack came along, it also lost most of it’s power in a paternity lawsuit, because of babies out of wedlock. The negro lost his best friend “my brother’s keeper” in a neighborhood shootout and left town for good when “ashamed” talked “shamed” into doing a reality show starring “immoral” and his family.

Great day beautiful people what it do? Like everyone else, I love my freedom and would select it over segregation any day of the week! But somewhere down the line, while the NEGRO was crossing the “freedom bridge” he forgot to bring the very “foundation” that carried US for centuries with him. Be EPIC and reach 1 teach 1 and pass it on! Stay encouraged

  1. I have to agree. The road paved along the way has gotten cracks in its foundation. It’s time to rebuild the village.
