DIALOGUE AND DISCUSSION ON EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT AND RACE
If there is no work then there will be NO THING there---like Jim Brown said when he asked the question "What chew gon do?"
I wonder how many people read that article? I've seen plenty of articles, clips, links floating around but never have seen this one before. Interesting and very brave indeed to express such an unpopular viewpoint. When I hear or read something regarding the lables of so called black and white people and their efforts to defend such lables, I have come to understand it as both sides debating over the opposite side of the same coin. In another way, I'm suggesting that maybe so called whites and blacks are fighting so hard to validate the superiority and inferiority of different skin tones, they both seem to me to be in the same position of low self image and all the while attempting to surpass one another while giving power of self determination to someone else outside of themselves?
Labels restrict growth. It's like being put in mold and expected to remain there.
The article was a step forward in the right direction, to say the least.
