Answers to the severe problems in Black America are not easy and will take a long time. However, there are a few things that would dramatically improve the condition of the urban environment in short order.[twitter-follow username=”R_R_Rye”]
1.) Stop Voting Democrat- A black person voting D is like a black person joining the Confederacy. It’s not really even a comparison so much as literally the same thing. Sad but true. Sharpton, Jackson or any other prominent black SJW, these are the real Uncle Toms of the world. Their bank accounts prove it. 90+% of the black vote goes to Democrats. How exactly do Republicans benefit from the status quo? Note this is not a de facto endorsement of R’s either, it’s just that Democrats are the party that have built a system of benefiting from black dependency and suffering.
Slave owners obviously had to feed and house their slaves, but could use it as another means of control. Until they worked up the courage to break free they were beholden to the master for survival due to poor education and lack of opportunity. That is the inner city experience and the welfare state today. A few warm meals and a place to sleep at night so work on the vote plantation can continue to run smoothly.
2.) Stop Listening to Rap, or at Least Use Purchasing Power to Change it- Sure, the best days of hard-core “gangsta” rap are gone. But it still promotes a concept that is largely counterproductive and divisive. In many ways rappers are similar to the Al Sharptons of the world, getting rich by perpetuating a culture of poverty. They sell a fantasy not unlike the lottery. A few get rich. Most get a modicum of cold comfort, a vicious cycle, and an increasingly jaded and exclusionary worldview.
3.) Stop Thinking in Terms of Colors or Groups and Start Thinking as Individuals- Banding together with similar people is instinctive and sometimes beneficial. But it also breeds suspicion and hostility to others as well as hindering one from discovering just how unique and unlike everyone else they are.
4.) Obey the Law- Whether or not the police encounter deaths in recent news were preventable aside, let’s all be honest. None of them came into contact with police while taking cookies to grandma’s house. It’s a cold, hard fact. Police are not the cause, they are the effect.
