No one will ever matter in the scheme of their own or others if they resist and refuse to emancipate their lot doing things to advance their collective existence.
It looks like Blacks which includes Africans, African Americans and their other cousins scattered all over the world, are still the doormats for every other race.
To change that position, we must engage in a self-pull up programs and agenda and that means; taking charge of our economic well being and remaining unapologetic in seeking what matters for us to prevail and not just overcome. In the animal kingdom, all animals are created equal but some are more equal than others by design and efforts. We can do so and improve the perception of our folks.
Countries in Africa are dismal when it comes to standing up to neo-colonial vestiges that still plague their national programs.
My mom used to say, “Son, how many times will something happen to you before you learn from them?” So, how many more years of crying and pointing to others before we belt up and charge ahead for our well being and collective existence? Come on, let's chart new courses for our various challenges!
