Willie Lynch: Why African Americans Have So Many Issues
by Marc Sims
Be not afraid, only believe Mark-5:36
When I was a boy, back in the 1970’s wanted to play baseball for the Chicago White Sox. I had daydreams of hitting homeruns, and doing my home run trot as the huge scoreboard explodes fireworks in the to Southside sky.
Dick Allen played first base for the White Sox, he was my favorite ball player. He wore the number 15, my lucky number. It would have been great to play professional baseball at the old White Sox park!
I had daydreams and daydreams of playing right field.
There were deep fly balls, and I would back up on the warning track, stick my out my hand to feel the closeness of the outfield wall. At the last second I would leap up and make a spectacular catch.
My dreams of a baseball career end thirty years ago after one season of little league. I thought I wasn’t good enough to play pony league and play ball in high school. I was also far too afraid to leave Chicago and try out for a minor league team.
Although I never achieved my baseball dreams I did taste a bit of baseball glory. The night the White Sox clinched a division title in 1983 I was there.
Old White Sox Park was standing room only packed! The sox hadn’t won anything since 1959 so this night was magic for Sox fans. When the final out was had the massive crowd exploded! The force of the crowd seem to float me down the stairs of the right field stands, then over the green padded wall, and down on to the warring track.
It was pandemonium on the field! I was running a run on the outfield as fire works field the Chicago sky!
I tell you this story to remind your mental visions can become a reality. Maybe not exactly they way you envisioned your goals, but your mind can draw you to your goals.
In grammar school and in high school I daydreamed of being a news anchor for the CBS owned TV station.
I would set at my desk and mentally pretended I was anchoring the Channel 2 News.
I wanted give TV viewers my views on the news! I had big dreams, but no plans to make them a reality. High school quickly ended and so did my career as a TV news anchor. The dream faded because I was afraid. I lack the academic skills, the dispend, and the confidence to prepare myself to be a news anchor.
Fear prevented me from asking anyone for wisdom and guidance. I suffered from a very poor self-image.
Eleven years later I mustered enough positive energy to become a public access producer. This wasn’t anchoring the Channel 2 News, but millions of Chicagoans could watch me provide information that they could not get on commercial television. The core of my life long dream became a reality and I hope to become a part of a cultural movement that will that every African American neighborhood is safe, clean, and has excellent schools.
During the 1970’s I wandered why Black people would intensely signify on each other? Why were we calling each other Black Sambos, high yellow niggas, and other degrading names? I wanted to know why some Black people lived in “the ghetto”? Why was everything white was good and everything black was bad?
Today you and I know the truth, but there are billions of people on earth who do not have a clue, or are in deep denial.
Part of my mission in life is to “demystify the bullshit”, and enlighten the masses! What is your mission in life?
Staying focus and achieving your personal goals is almost impossible without having a mission. The forces of evil will knock you down, but do not allow your fears and lack of confidence keep a on the canvas. It is easy to give up, but you can’t give up! Hang in there, use whatever skills you have, never quit and you will succeed.
You have the responsablity of inspiring and neutering future generations. The children you see everyday have dreams and goals, and it is our responsibility to help them achieve their goals.
We all have goals, dreams, and desires, but fear stops most people from living a more productive life. My fears has delayed this small book from being written and published. It has taken me more than ten years to overcome the fear of criticism. Some fears are natural, but most are learned, and all fears are in the mind. Fear is preventing the masses of African Americans from living far beyond a life of day-to-day survival.
African Americans think it is impossible to end the pervasive crime and hopelessness in our low-income neighborhoods. However, all things are possible!
We can achieve our goals as soon as we get over
Yes, I am talking about our conscious and unconscious fears of criticism, loss of friendship and loss of employment. Overcoming these fears are not an easy task for “the White man” controls for every aspect of life in the United States of America. During slavery Black people were punished for opposing white supremacy and today African Americans are afraid to oppose the racist institutions
of the United States. We have also been conditioned to revere the institutions of the US. We have been conditioned to fear and admire the local and national institutions of the Unite States of America.
African Americas will serve and protect the racist institutions of the United States before will mildly considering serving and protecting each other. Black people are subconsciously afraid of White people!
We have been made afraid to be are natural selves and conduct our selves as sons and daughters of God!
Everyday we kill each other in our neighborhood, or kill other human beings all over the world for the US military, but we known we better not harm any White people! Consciously and subconsciously all African Americans know it is not wise to take on “the man” and his family!
Integration has made us totally dependent on the benevolence of European Americans. Most of our jobs, mortgages, insurance, and consumer loans all come from white folks!
We are like a third world nation placed in check by debt and dependency. You can speak out against inequality, injustice, and white supremacy, but at you own economic peril! There are a few economically free African Americans but they are shamefully too full of fear to speak against white supremacy.
One reason this book was written was to free the author from “the master’s plantation”.
The white slave master and his overseers do not physically exist, they are just figments of my imagination.
I could have run away to freedom at anytime but was fearful I could not survive without a paycheck. A steady paycheck can defer the dream of becoming self-employed. Freeing yourself from debt and dead-end jobs is an extremely daunting task! Very few people can free themselves from their fears with out any help. There are African Americans who have freed themselves from the plantation, but how many of them are leading other black people to freedom?
You may have great dreams, desires, and goal but are afraid to go down the rough road to freedom.
To free your self from your fears, your neurosis, or your character disorder, or any other mental challenge you have may take years of dogged determination. Then again! You can begin to transform yourself instantly!
Everyday there are “moments of truth” were we choose to take a positive or negative action.
You can allow irrational fear control you and stifle your personal growth or you can become proactive and move closer to achieving your goals! I know it is hard to overcome fear, but you can. You have overcome other fears and you can overcome your current fears.
I wrote the first part of the book years ago then became discourage and stopped. A few years went buy before I was inspired to finish this book. Then there was two years of rewriting and proofreading. During the entire process there were hours, days, weeks, and months of procrastination.
This small book is the result of a transformed self-image. For years and years I felt I was not smart enough to write and book. I felt I was not smart enough to go beyond a paycheck-to-paycheck existence.
Most African Americans are in a perpetual survival mode. They are held down by the vicious forces of racism, classism, self-doubt, superstiton, and religious dogma.
Theses are pretty strong forces to overcome, but theses mental chains can be broken! A cultural movement is desperately needed to improve the self-image of the masses of Black people.
I am sure you have heard the naysayers lament; “it is hopeless”! “Trying to wake up the children of the mentally dead masses is a waste of your valuable time”! “ Black people don’t want freedom, they want fantasy”! “Why are you trying to push a mule that does not want to move”? “ Forget about the poor, and focus on making yourself one of the rich”! “
These are the worlds of the naysayers, but just imagine African Americans working together and ending the crime and poverty that plagues our lower income neighborhoods.
When we achieve this seemingly impossible dream half of the world would ask us for wisdom and guidance.
We are approaching the end of the world! Not the end of the planet earth, but the end of wars and rumors of wars. We are witnessing the fulfillment of “the scriptures” and the end of the bamboozlement of the masses! There is too much wisdom and technology for this world to have famine, diseases, and explicit ignorance. It is the responsibility of the righteous to enlighten and empower the masses, but the power of evil scares most of the righteous and they stick their heads in the sand. Which leaves them wide open for a good kick in the butt!
There is only a very small percent of “really” bad people in a high crime neighborhood. Theses people lead their minions to do evil and scare the rest of us back into our homes. Who are these people? Where did they come from? Are they evil sprits, or government agent provocateurs? These evil sprits who make our neighborhood “bad” are our children!
Black people are naturally peaceful people. It is unnatural for us to distrust, disrespect, and commit crimes against each other. There is an evil element that influences African American culture, our thoughts, and our consciousness. The system of white supremacy is very real and our children must be aware of it. Our children, especially our boys must know the “white man” is out to get them! The US government has, and will place agent provocateurs in African American neighborhoods to destabilize them. Don’t you wander why we cannot work together to pool our recourses and fund after school, and Saturday school programs for all our children? If there is a group of African Americans trying to organize to improve the conditions in our lower income neighborhoods you best believe Negro provocateurs are sent in to derail the process. We could negate these Negroes and end the chaos in our community if we focus on our children. Some children are blessed with a loving, nurturing home to go to after school. There also million of African American children who ain’t so lucky! If we really loved all children we would provide programs and instructions that will help them with their homework and inspire them to become productive human beings. The main thing that is stopping us is Willie Lynch. It is time to end the Willie Lynch effect!
Willie Lynch is a metaphor for the divide and conquer tactics that are used on Black people.
Remember the goal of our enemies is to keep the Black man, the Black woman, and their children divided! It is time to end our ignorance, and our self-hatred of each other.
There are six billion people on the earth but only a hundred and forty four thousand are needed the transform urban Black American and the rest of the world.
This is where “the tipping point” meets “the six degrees of separation”. This is how ideas can enter the consciousness of millions, or billions of people. This is how thoughts manifest into material things.
There was only a small percent of Black people who directly participated on the civil rights movement; a
”movement” that influenced the entire world!
One committed person can influence a lot of people, and a small group of committed people can motivate millions! We all have a circle of influence. We all know two or three hundred people. Also every one we know knows at least three hundred people.
Good news travels fast, and bad news even faster. There are positive and negative thoughts all around us. You have the power to send positive thoughts throughout the entire universe!
Do you think it is possible to raise the awareness of Black people to the point were we do not tolerate street crimes and inferior public schools?
Let me repeat, the goal is to make every African American neighborhood safe, clean, and to provide excellent schools for our children.
A cultural movement is the best way to achieve this goal. The goal must be repeated again and again until it is ingrained the mind of the masses of Black people. This can accomplish via the institutions and celebrities that influence popular culture.
This process of transforming urban Black America begins you sending positive information to your circle of influence. You may not personally know any athletes or entertainers but the people you know have friends or family that knows someone that personally knows someone who influences popular culture. When you contact everyone you know, you are connecting with thousands, maybe millions for people. Do you think a phone call, letter, post card, e-mail, or a thought saying “be not afraid, only believe” would positively influence almost everyone you know? Can you think of some other thought, message, or idea that would positively influence almost everyone you know? Will you consider sending positive thoughts to everyone you know?
All things are possible, but we must believe all things are possible. We will have all the power we need if we only believe.
African Americans as a group, believe there will always be homes and neighborhoods filled with chaos and drama. We can end the chaos and drama, but we need to replace our thoughts of complacency and hopelessness with thoughts of a transforming power and a divine purpose.
Willie Lynch: Why African Americans Have So Many Issues
by Marc Sims
This book was written to stimulate thought, create some debates, and inspire some action! It was also written with the hope that this book would be a small part of a new cultural movement. A movement that will insure that every African American neighborhood is safe and clean, with excellent schools.
It does not matter if we live in the city, the suburbs, or in a small country town, a new movement is needed to end the effects of Willie Lynch!
The civil rights era basically ended with the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The civil rights organizations of today are self-aggrandizing. They don’t concentrate
their efforts on making our old urban neighborhoods safe for women and children. The only concerned with getting job and contracts for their friends.
Too many middle class African Americans have been living off the success of the civil rights movement. As the civil rights generations age, the post civil rights generations have the reasonability to improve the quality
of life in African American communities. We can make life better of our children and grand children by organizing our mental and monetary resources. It is time to circle the wagons and pool our resources and protect our children.
Elijah Muhammad was the last leader that showed African Americans how to pool their resources. Ever since the years of the old Nation of Islam African Americans have been wondering in the wilderness.
It may take a few more years before Hip-Hop generations to develop a new pool our resources movement, but this movement is inevitable.
It is about time African Americans finally removed the mental shackles of slavery. We have the talent, and the money, but do we have the desire? If we started now we would see improvements in one year, and great changes three years.
Now you are problem asking your self how? What can I do today to begin to solve the societal ills of the African American community? How can I end the ignorance, and the selfishness among African Americans? If you want to do something, just physically or financially support a positive youth program in you neighborhood. The main challenge African Americans living in low-income neighborhoods is providing positive male role models for our children. If we just did that, most of our other challenges will take care of them selves! Send some money toady to an organization that teaches young people values and principles.
You would probably agree African Americans cannot exactly recreate a Marcus Garvy movement, or Dr. Martin Luther King’s civil rights movement, and we are too Christian to follow all the teachings of Elijah Muhammad. However we need to reexamine the writings and speeches of these
Mr. Muhammad said White people are naturally devilish people who make mischief all over the world. Christianity teaches its followers to love their enemies and to turn the other cheek. Do you think we will ever see a Black Nationalist Christian?
African Americans should also follow Booker T. Washington’s advice and lower our buckets. We have all the money we need right in our own neighborhoods. We more electricians, carpenters, and other people with skills to perform services for each other. It is a shame we have to ask other nationalities to fix our house, or our car.
It would also be wise for African Americans to modernizes and expand W. E. B. Dubois’ vision of the talented tenth. African Americans receive college degrees every year, more Brothers and Sitters need to resist the temptations of the White life and use their education to build businesses that will benefit African Americans.
All of us want to live in clean and safe neighborhoods with excellent schools, but evidently some African Americans feel they cannot stop the crime in their neighborhood.
Leadership is desperately needed to inspire all the different tribes in the African American community to work together to make their neighborhoods safe and clean. Now when the new wave of leaders emerge, make sure you ask them if they are financed by white people! African Americans should be suspicious of leaders and organizations that receive thousands of dollars from American corporations. African Americans have to finance the organizations of the new young
Leaders. We do not want are young leaders corrupted by large sums of White money.
The suspicion and tension between blacks and whites will never end. White people have a long history of war and rumors of wars. Genocide is also part of their history. Privately, African Americans feel Aids is a virus created to kill undesirable human beings. This means poor people, especially people of color in Africa and Asia. Mother earth can provide the resources needed to feed, clothed, and shelter every human being, but the rich and supper rich have no plans to care for all of Gods children.
Although there is obvious injustice, inequality, and genocide, African Americans should not waste any energy hating the white people we see every day. Our focuses should be on transforming crime ridden and economically depressed African American neighborhoods. We should concentrate on strengthening our families and proving an excellent education for our children. After we save ourselves, then we can go save the rest of the world!
Whether we choose to live the rest of your life in the United States, or to follow the path W. E. B. Dubois and move to the west cost of Africa, we must continue to focus on your family, your neighborhood, and your community.
When African Americans eliminate the crime and poverty in our urban neighborhoods, we will gain the
respect of the world.
The goal is simple, clean and safe neighborhoods, with excellent schools!
We not should not allow ourselves to be distracted by any wars, any media subterfuge, or the reparations movement. It is ok to participate in the reparations movement, but do not let it distract you from making our neighborhoods clean and safe for African American women and children.
The reparations movement is very necessary, but it could divert us from pooling the resources African American have right now that solve all our challenges.
It may take twenty to twenty-five years of consistent pressure on the United States government for the descents of African slaves to obtain reparations.
We should first ask the United States for an apology for slavery, and then demand reparations for slavery. The next step is to watch out for the Negroes leaders who will try to water down the final settlement. As the reparations for slavery fight goes on our Willie Lynch slave mentality has to be destroyed before we are qualified to receive our forty acres, a mule, and millions of dollars from the US government. If every African American received a million dollars today, we would go on a mad spending spree, thus giving all money back to White people. First we have to get our act together, meaning, we must end the Willie Lynch mind set before we can correctly handle any reparations!
African Americans should take reasonability for our success and failures in our community.
We should not hold any animosity against any Latinos, Asians, or any other new immigrants. They have been allowed to imminagrate to the Unites States so whites can benefit from their labor and their income. Only large numbers of Black people are not wanted in the United States of America. The European American powers have always sought to control, incarcentrat, or Kill Black people. The purveyors of the Willie Lynch plan were so successful brain washing their slaves the descendents of African slaves cause as much harm to themselves to as their former slaver owners.
The resurrection of the mentally dead is long over do! When will African Americans ever wake up?
The entire world is waiting for African Americans to wake up and take control of their minds. In the past when Black people began to wake up Negro leaders were dispatched to rock black people back to sleep. The next time African Americans begin to smell the coffee, the agents and provocateurs will not be so successful. With computer technology so widely available, and so easy to use, everyone can read and understand the Willie Lynch speech. The flow of mind enlightening information is unstoppable! A person has really got to go out of their way to remain ignorant.
There are bookstores, libraries, talk radio, 24 hours TV news, informational audiotapes and compact disc to listen in the car. Only a deliberate fool will consciously reject undeniable truth. However, soon and very soon a fool will not be able to tell that lie; I did not know.
Willie Lynch: Why African Americans Have So Many Issues
by Marc Sims
DIVIDE AND CONQUER
Don’t forget, you must pit the old black male vs. the
young black, and the young black female against the old black female.
African Americans have been victimized by the Willie Lunch’s of the past and present. Yes, African Americans are victims of European America’s racism. Being a victim is not the problem. The challenge rallying to overcome the effects of the oppression. Now, this is a real challenge!
Do you think a person that can’t read or doesn’t read has the intellect ignore the forces of depiction?
There is an old saying; if you want to keep something from a nigger put it in a book!
Not enough African American read book with purpose of improving the quality of life in our community. There are books and web sites that will help anyone get more out of life. There is plenty of how to information; how to find a good husband, raise smart children, run a successful business, and successfully invest money.
Of course history book and biographies are some of the best books to read. The history of African American are filled with stories of triumph over racism.
White folks have always made it hard for Black folks to achieve, but when the playing field is even Black people achieve! After our talented Brothers and Sisters become successful they are socially separated from the masses of Black people. Thus we do not fully benefit from their talent, money or intellect.
We don’t all look alike or think alike, and we don’t all have the same goals and aspirations. However, we all have a common history, and we should not forget our ancestors who suffered though the centuries of slavery and the hellish years after slavery. Despite our education, economic, or political differences African American should work together to end the crime and poverty in our neighborhoods.
This book is for everyone to read, but especially for African American teens and young adults. They will have to decide whether to remain in the United States of America or relocate somewhere on the continent named Africa.
The thought of leaving the United States wouldn’t be necessary if American was a place of peace, justice, and equality. The US is a great place to live if you have the money to stay away from the crime ridden neighborhoods.
The poor in America have very few options. The poor endure the majority of the injustices of the United States.
So it is up to the upper and middle income African Americans to protect
Their less successful Brothers and Sisters. This is dammed near impossible because we are so divided and conquered. Willie Lynch did a great job of pitting the black woman against the black man, and the old against the young, and the lighter skinned slaves against the darker skinned slaves. Now African Americans have class divisions.
Today the talent our best and brightest educated Brothers And Sisters is use to benefit White folks, not us!
Today African Americans must come to gripes with reality and step out of the troubled waters of denial. Yes, it is time for African Americans to blame “the White man” for most of our problems! We after we get that off
of our chest, then we can begin to take reasonability for our future.
It is time for African Americans to end the curse of Willie Lynch!
Mr. Lynch was right, his tactics have lasted for 300 years. It is amazing African Americans have been mental slaves for so long! We act like don’t want to be free. It looks like we just want to have a good time. We do not want justice and peace. We just want large amounts of pleasure. We want every thing rich white folks have. We want to buy our way to happiness.
They way we think and what we do is no accident, we have programmed to be mental slaves.
This is our life in the United States of America, the land of the free and the home of the slaves!

Willie Lynch: Why African Americans Have So Many Issues (Feb 2004)
by Marc Sims
Unedited Galley Version please excuse the typos
THE FUTURE OF AFRICAN AMERICANS
And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not their's, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
Genesis 15 Verse 13 & 14
The fate of African Americans is tied to the fate of the United States. Although the United States is changing, whites will stay in power because the American way is the white American way. Anyone who hopes to obtain any position of power must think like white European Americans. The future challenge for the powers that be is keeping the poor and lower educated African Americans happy in their neighborhoods, or in prison.
The “white man” has a
great track record of conditioning
and controlling the minds of African Americans. Today television is the number on tool of mind control and African Americans watch more television than any people on the planet earth.
TV distracts and pacifies Black folks so well we have desire to improve the conditions in our urban neighborhoods.
The intuitions the United States have controlled the minds of the slaves, the Negros, and today’s African Americans.
When the United States was a developing country, black folks were slaves. Most of us did what we were told to do. After a few hundred years, we became sharecroppers! In the south and the north, most of us did what we were conditioned to do. When the United States went to war, African Americans went to fight for their county.
African Americans have always been loyal servants to white people.
Now there is no real need for us, especially low income American Americans.
African Americans were present at the beginning of the United States and we will be present when the United States falls from grace. This is the place we call home. We don’t know any better, or we don’t think our lives can be any better living outside the United States.
Our minds have been programmed to believe that Jesus or some other messiah will save us before the United States goes down the drain. That would be wonderful, but Jesus beaming African Americans up to heaven is against the physical laws of nature.
More than likely, the United States will continue its decline because the majority of its citizens refuse to be fair. Capitalism, racism, and white supremacy are teamed up to beat down the majority of African Americans. From the horrors of slavery up to the present we have endured racism, and white supremacy. When we moved from the country racism was waiting for us in the city.
When African Americans moved to the suburbs racism was there to greet us. Racism and white supremacy is everywhere, it is the American way.
At the founding of this great nation, white men owned slaves! For over two hundred years America has continued the great tradition of injustices and inequality. America has a long history and an ever present reality of injustices and inequality against the Indians, the descendants of black African slaves, and anyone else who fights for real freedom and justice.
The modern day advocates for freedom and justice are not popular people.
If you are against the American’s unfair penile system, you’re against the American way and conservative values. You are against white America if you are for justice for all; especially if you want justice for the descendants of black African slaves.
The United States media will brand you as a bonified nut if you advocate the decimalization of illegal drugs, or other consensual crimes. You will be considered a communist if you want a Universal health plan for all US citizens. In the United States there is freedom and opportunity, but your freedom and opportunities are limited by your level of education and income.
The United States is a good place to live for those who do not rock the boat, but all great governments eventually come to the end of the road.
The United States of America can go in three directions. It could become a fair and just society. It could fall into a second world status. Or it could totally collapse. We already see the economic gap between the rich and the poor widening. We are also seeing an expanding multicultural United States. We also see a defacto one world economic system. This is the national progression of capitalism.
The United States is a country where you can see first world, second world, and third world communities. This is a country full of greatness and great contradictions. The United States is the land of milk and honey, and also a land like Sodom and Gomorra. There are mind blowing technical advances and also intense religious dogma, zealousness, and superstition. Eventually these contradictions will blow up into conflict.
We are beyond the year 2000 and real religious people continue to anticipate the arrival of a physical Jesus, or some supreme messiah, or unidentified flying objects comming down out of the sky to save the righteous. We need to have some serious discussions about “the end of the world’! We need to ask the Hebrew Israelites if African Americans are really the chosen people of God. Also the followers of Elijah Muhammad ought to fully explain the prophesy of Ezekiel’s wheel in the sky. Is there a huge space station in the cosmos poised to destroy the United States of America?
We also need to discuss the reality of Jesus! What parts of the Bible are real and what are the writer’s parabolic embellishments? We should also study other religions and their vision of the end of the world.
These questions are important because African Americans seem to be more focused on their after life opposed to their succeeding generations.
The majority of Americans would agree the end is near, but how near? The majority of Americans would agree the strange and aggressive weather that hits the United States is a sign. Is the strange weather a warning or is it the result of man made chemicals altering the earth’s atmosphere?
All good and bad things must come to an end, so let’s analyze the present. Can the United States of American remain the earth’s number one super power as it becomes more and more multicultural? Will the United States go through a steep economic decline, a devastating military defeat, or diplomatic blunder that will allow the European Union to become the earth’s “one world” super power? When will World War III begin? Will it be in 2017, 2027, or 2037?
The war of Armageddon should be the least of our worries as United States citizens because if there is a God, punishment is inevitable. The United States government has not yet given reparations for slavery. They have not given apologies for the past and present ill treatment of African Americans. Please understand some religious people believe African Americans are like the Hebrew salves and the United States will be punished by God!
White people are a minority on the planet so you will see them continue to concentrate their power to maintain their power. They will also continue to give up some power to stay in power. Don’t be surprised when you see a Latino Pope, or a Pope of African decent. Don’t be surprised when you see a Female President and a African American President. You may see this within the next fifteen to twenty-five years. However, it doesn’t matter who is the front man or women, the White man will always be in charge!
The United States is the number one economic super power for now, but it looks like the European Common Market is poised to take that position. Whether the United States remains the ruler of the free world or slides back to second or third place really doesn’t matter. Some time in this century, white people will have to earnestly share power with the earth’s people
of color. This will happen after their spears are turned into plow shears and they study war no more.
In present day America, it’s about money and the love of money could eventually ruin the United States of America. The love of money can create evils and selfishness. The US dollar is backed by the power of the US military, world trade, and the willingness of national and international investors. If the United States totally collapses, the world’s economic systems will also collapse. If the United States falls, African Americans will go down the drain with everyone else! In the meantime and for the foreseeable future, African American civil rights organizations will continue to rant and rave about how we are not treated like wealthy white Americans. The deeply, and semi-religious African Americans will continue to wait on Jesus, or some other messiah to beam them up to heaven. The rest of us will enjoy life in the moment; watching TV, spending money, gambling, shaking our booty, stuffing our faces, getting high, or getting our freak on. Ninety five percent of Black people will continue to do what they have been doing.
With all this mirth and merriment going on, we will see a small group of African Americans who will make preparations to go back home! This sounds crazy but many African Americans have moved to Africa and we will see more brothers and sister leave the United States. It sounds crazy now, but American capitalism cannot last forever. Now if you feel the United States is domed, go get your reparations, and start making preparations to leave the country.
The new world order will get old real fast, and the nations of Asia and the Arab world may end up having a world war with the United States and Europe.
World war three, the economic collapse of the United States, or any thing else will not persuade Black people to leave America.
At the end of slavery, most of the slaves did not want to go back to Africa because North America was the only home they knew. Most African Americans feel like Americans, not Africans. Moving to Africa is a scary proposition. In reality, only a very small percentage of African Americans will eventually move to the continent of Africa because they will become extremely dissatisfied with America. The millions that remain will continue to be second, third, and fourth class citizens. They will continue to fight the white power structure for civil rights and equality.
Most African Americans believe in a supreme being. They feel their personal problems and the world’s problems will receive a divine solution. African Americans need to believe they are divine, and that there are gods they will solve all of their problems.
African Americans have the power and money to solve every problem facing us today. We just suffer from the curse of Willie Lynch. We are blinded and stymied by envy, jealousy, and distrust of each other.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. That’s an old, trite, saying but it’s true for African Americans. At the turn of the century, whites had total control in the United States and we suffered injustice and inequality. Today whites Americans continue to control the United States and we suffered injustice and inequality. The descendents of African slaves seem to be content with their lives in the United States. Or we are so overwhelmed with life’s daily struggles we have very little energy to fight the forces that divide and conquer. There are millions of African Americans who are dissatisfied with their life in America but there are not enough young leaders to organize them. The Marcus Garvy movement flourished in the 1920’s; hopefully we don’t have to wait long for history to repeat its self!
Willie Lynch: Why African Americans Have So Many Issues
by Marc Sims
Unedited Galley Version please excuse the typos
RACE AND CLASS
You must also have all your white servants and overseers distrust all blacks but it is necessary that your slaves trust and depend on us.
Old joke: What do you call a black man with a Ph.D. from Harvard? You call him or her nigger! We hope this old joke is not a reality today, but African Americans as a group, will never become equal to European Americans. Well, some whites will treat you as an equal if you do not show any real love for your people. Just become a race neutral Negro and you will have plenty of white friends!
Many economically successful African Americans have tried their best to become white, meaning that want to be accepted by whites. This is understandable, because white folks have all the money. The medium income African Americans have is half of the medium income of white Americans. This is one reason why most black neighborhoods don’t look as nice as white neighborhoods. It takes a lot of money to keep a home looking like new. The other reason why most of our communities don’t look as nice as other communities is African Americans have a love/hate relationship with each other. Although we instinctively love each other, we were taught by Willie Lynch to distrust each other. This distrust is one reason why there are so many businesses run by other nationalities in our communities. When we see a Black owned business, it triggers the thought; “why should I make that nigger rich”! We because jealous and go spend our money with people who have no intentions of circulating money though the African American community. Most of the billions and billions of dollars we earn every year lands in banks, insurance companies, mortgages companies, and other business that are own by European Americans.
We have all the money we need to solve all of our problems, but we spend too much money foolishly. We spend too much for the out side of our bodies vs. the inside of our bodies! We eat too much! We drink and get high too much! And of course we gamble way too much money! We buy millions of lottery tickets every day. You only need one ticket to win, but we buy 10, 20, or 30 every week! The money we lose at the casino, the horse or dog track, and buying lottery tickets add up to hundreds of millions of dollars that could have used to developed the minds of African American children.
African Americans also have love/hate feelings for whites and the United States of America. The United States is our home. We have lived here, as a people for over four hundred years, and 95% of us have no intentions of moving back to the continent of Africa. America has many problems, but it is the only home we know we know. Be it ever so racist, there is no place
We are naturally peaceful people! We do not kill European Americans for the past and present unequal and genocidal treatment we have received. African Americans are like any other people; we just want peace, justice, and equality.
In America we have plenty of race and class issues. The lower educated African Americans have little class, the want-to-be bourgeoisie think they have a lot of class, and the real black bourgeoisie spend most of their time with their white classy friends.
In the good old USA conservative African Americans are rewarded very well for being color blind Negroes. White conservatives accept this small group because they are non-threatening and will not dare blame Willie Lynch or any other European American for dividing Black people. They act like there is no inequality and no injustices in the United States. They have been thoroughly brainwashed and see black as being bad and white as being good. African American conservatives believe the majority should rule, and white
European Americans are the largest group of people in the United States. African American conservatives may mean well, but they fail to realize they are pawns trotted out for the purpose of dividing African Americans. You will see Black conservatives on television but you will rarely see Black nationalist on the same TV show.
The conservatives tell Black folks to think for them-selves and become successful individuals. Yes, anyone can become a successful individual in the USA. All you have to do is to use your education or skills to get a good job or open up a business. Give your customers or employer what they want, and then save and invest 10% of your earnings and live happily ever after.
As an individual you can achieve great success in America, but what about the rest of your people? The conservatives will tell you to forget about “your people”!
African Americans on the liberal side of the political spectrum ain’t that much better! They spend too much time at some policy meeting, or at some political party, and not enough time on the ground with the urban poor. African American liberals are basically assimilationist, so they really do not want to solve the problems of the urban poor. Their focus is keeping their good jobs and making money for European American corporations and foundations.
African American politicians are assimilationist. Today we have more elected officials and community organizations than ever before and poverty and crime remains a huge issue in our community.
African American democrats and republicans are not willing to (or are unable to) eliminate crime and poverty in the African American community. With the ineffectiveness of our politicians we can understand why young Africans Americans, and the poor don’t vote. They don’t see any real tangible results coming from the electoral process.
What they see is African American liberals and conservatives being house negroes who work on different parts of the master,s house!
For younger African Americans, racism and white supremacy are like the atoms of the air. They cannot see it, touch or smell it, but racism affects them every day of their lives. When they go to school, they’re taught from a white American point of view. When they watch TV or go the movies, they see the white European American world view. When they go out and work in corporate America, they see American racism and capitalism in all its glory. When young African Americans find themselves in court, they are judge by white America’s point of view. When the younger brothers and sisters finally figure out something ain’t right, it’s too late. It is a shame every generation is not sat down and taught all about the reality of the world.
Race and class issues are very real in the good old USA and the African American urban poor are burdened the most.
Nobody wants to live with poor black people. In fact, poor black people do not even want to live in a poor black neighborhood. White families will live with black families until the black families begin to out number them.
The first fear of the white family is miscegenation! The slave master mixed his genetics with his Black slaves, but the average White person doesn’t want any race mixing. This is very understandable, and this needs to be thoroughly discussed. If you disagree, read this great book, The Isis Papers by Dr. Frances Cress Welsing.
The vast majority of European Americans live in European American neighborhoods. They do not want to live as a minority, surrounded by “the minorities”. You can’t fault them, they just need to be honest about their views on race relations in America.
It would be great to hear today’s white parents say; “I don’t want my son or daughter having babies with black people”. It would be great to hear today’s White people say; “I am afraid of Black people”. Whites seem to fear retribution from African Americans. They seem to fear we will beat them up, or rob them, or have sexual relations with their women. We all need to begin speaking honestly about our feelings and about each other.
This is natural; you would expected to see people of the same ethnic or racial group living in their own neighborhood. Birds of a feather flock together. However there are some exceptions! What is also natural is sexual attractions between men and women. There are some serious and uptight views about how sexuality and race should be handled in the United States. All the different people in the United States must be honest about their feelings of race mixing. It is time for some new discussions on race in the USA.
In the good old days, white Americans were the dominant race. When we watched television shows or a movie, we would see whites but very few African, Americans Latinos, Asians, or any one else. Today’s TV shows and movies have more “minority” actors but the Euros are still the dominant race. This is the result of market forces and racist forces that are against the non-white people of America.
Remember racism and capitalism go hand in hand. African Americans are rarely the leading men or women. If they are, they are lone rangers with a White Tonto as their sidekick. There are also not enough movies and TV shows were African Americans have a family, an extended black family, or black friends. We are a very diverse group of human beings, and television producers do not want to show the diversity of today’s African Americans. We all don’t know each other. Some of us can’t dance or sing, or run real fast. Either the white folks who produce television shows and motion pictures don’t understand us, or they don’t want to understand us, or they are totally focused on the bottom line. The majority of television and movie producers may not be racist, but probably a few European Americans it the media who can’t stand Black people.
We also know most white people have real trouble seeing the world the way we see the world.
African Americans do not own the large media conglomerates, so we can only ask white folks to become fair and show the full spectrum of our life in America.
It is tempting to cut most whites some slack because they cannot really understand what it means to be an African American. Also, the average white person is not the real enemy. The average white person is striving to make a decent living for himself and his family. The real enemies of black people are the leaders and institutions of White American supremacy.
The institutions of white America have created the negative perception of African Americans and that negative perception is passed down to all the nationalities of America. The perception is black men are violent and sex crazy and black women are promiscuous and money hungry. Most Americans think we all go to church on Sunday morning. They think everything black is bad and everything white is good. We have all bought into the constant vilification of African Americans.
Racial problems remain real in America because American’s institutions are inherently racist. African Americans cannot get major motion picture or television show made without the approval of white people. African Americans cannot get a product on the shelf of a major store without the approval of white people. Basically, Black people cannot do anything on a national or international scale without the approval of a white person. Yes, white people control every aspect of capitalism in the United States. That’s just the way it is! Every rich African American probably understands the white American power structure can make them poor overnight. The White man giveth and the White man can taketh away! Any brother and sister who forgets this racist capitalist reality will be reminded!
Living in a racist society is bad, but being poor and living in a racist society is even worst. So, the American rich people keep their mouths shut. The middle class people keep their mouths shut, and the poor people continue in misery.
As a group, African Americans will never fully assimilate into mainstream American society. Capitalism cannot create equality! There will always be economic winners and losers under American capitalism. Regardless of the capital we have only 10% to 20% of African Americans really want
fully assimilate into mainstream American society. Most of us want maintain as much of our African American cultural as possible.
White people are in power and
we live in their world! They make the rules and change them whenever they feel like changing them. White people want to stay in control and they do so by culturally making all the non-white people living in the United States, “American”.
What is equally sad is that main line African American organizations continuing to strive for integration. May be soon these old civil rights organizations will realize they are at a dead end. Since 1865, whites have tried to tell African Americans they will not accept all of us. Liberal whites can only deal with a small percentage of us, and the white conservatives will only accept black folks who don't like being black. White people naturally prefer African Americans who are race neutral Negroes. They reject the Black Nationalist or the overly Afrocentric. Integration is all right for the rich or highly educated African American population, but white folks don’t want the rest of us. You would think it would be easy for African Americans to fully integrate into the white community since we are less than fifteen percent of the United States population. Integration should be easy, right? The old civil rights generations wanted integration, or at least assimilation. They wanted European Americans to accepted them as equals. Fortunately the new generations don’t have the same desires of their grandparents.
In the United States of America there are lower income whites, Latinos, Asians, and other Americans, but the low income African Americans catch more hell then any other group.
The United States of America has a real race and class problem. We tolerate each other because we have a few dollars in our pockets. As long as the money keeps flowing, we can all get along.
American society has always determined who is black and who is white. African Americans will quickly tell about their white bloodline, but you will rarely hear white people discuss their genetic history if it includes black blood. There is a new game “they” are playing to weaken the power of African Americans. The game is biracial allegiance and multiculturalism. Remember their goal is to keep African Americans divided.
It does not matter what you call mixed race children, these children will have some hard choices. Who really wants to be a black? In the USA black is bad and white is good. The American media sets the standards for beauty and success. African Americans set the standards for athletics and entertainment, but we don’t have the money and media power that white folks have. Because of this most Americans strive for the European American standards of success. Multiculturalism and biracial allegiance gives African Americans another way to distend themselves from our heritage as they strive to be “American”.
Hopefully, biracial African Americans will speak up and work for justice and equality for the black side of their family.
Believe it or not, there are some good white people. There are a few who fight for freedom, justice and equality. There are also a few we are friendly on the job or at the ball game and who see African Americans as equal human beings. It is too bad there are only a few good European Americans that have any real political or economic power. African Americans should work with them and other Americans of goodwill. However, the bulk of our time is needed in our own homes and communities.
Willie Lynch: Why African Americans Have So Many Issues (Paperback)
by Marc Sims
I have outlined a number of differences among the slaves, and I take these differences and make them bigger. I use fear, distrust, and envy for control purposes.
The African American masses have a hard time unifying and transforming the our low-income neighborhoods because of two forces - negroisum and white supremacy. We can defeat racism and white supremacy if we ever defeat negroism.
Unfortunately, most African American leaders act as if the white man cannot be defeated. The truth is, they really do not want white supremacy defeated. They will say, “how are we going to make some money with out the help of the white man”? They have a; if you can’t beat them, join them mentality. Many African American leaders pretend they are fighting for the advancement of the masses of Black people but the fighting for the advancement of them selves, their family, and their friends. The original followers of Elijah Muhammad were taught about the 5%; the poor righteous teachers, the 10%; the bloodsuckers, and the 85%; the mentally dead masses. Most African American leaders would be tossed in the 85% group, but the rest are part of the 10% blood-sucking group. The 10% are people who have wisdom and knowledge, but use their wisdom and knowledge to hoodwink and bamboozle the mentally African American dead masses.
To many African American leaders are corrupt to some degree. This is because they give in to the need to stay on top. That desire, combined with the desire to keep the money rolling in corrupts their honest intentions.
In the United States, the goal is to make a whole lot of money and, or gain a whole lot of power. The goal of the poor is to just get through the day. The goal of the middle classes is to stay away from the poor and to act like they have got it going on!
Living the life of the rich and famous is very exciting. Going to fancy parties, driving luxury automobiles, and in a large home or a deluxe apartment in the sky is the goal of African American “leaders”. In the United States cash is king, and having a mulit-million dollar investment portfolio is even better. This is especially true if you are a “leader”. The poor masses will not follow someone poor like them, and the middle class will not follow someone who is not “educated”. The masses want their leaders to have lots of money, expensive cars, and fine clothes.
The masses follow the “leader” or follow the follower rather than following proven principles and values.
What African Americans follow is truth mixed with falsehood, wrapped in dazzling packaging.
Most African American leaders probably feel the masses are asses! Because of this, many African American leaders face a dilemma. If they tell masses of African Americans “the whole truth” the masses wouldn’t believe it. If they told the masses the hard cold truth, they lose his followers and go broke
or get themselves killed. The truth can set the masses free, but it will also create some enemies for our leaders. The Willie Lynch powers that be don’t want the black masses to know the truth, so the black leaders who know the truth keep the to themselves.
Any African American leader who tries to enlighten the masses will be vilified in the media. If that doesn’t work, the IRS will investigate him or her. If that doesn’t stop the bold black leader, the powers that be will find a way to put these black leaders in jail or have them killed!
New, strong, and truthful African American leaders are desperately needed to tell young African Americans about the Willie Lynch game. It is the game of divide and conquer! It has African Americans fighting and killing each other everyday.
There are white and black leaders who are running the Willie Lynch game on African Americans every day. The United States government, the media
and every other American institutions are a part of the game. Young brothers and sisters need to know the United States has a history of investigating and infiltrating black organizations. If the United States had government agents and provocateurs in the past, they can surely have them now. There probably are investigations and infiltrations of black organizations going on right now, and the purpose is to keep us at odds with each other. Have you ever notice that every time a group African Americans begin to get a movement going some Negroes, or some conservatives show up to derail the movement? Think about it!
African American communities are in chaos, and we are accustomed to chaos. Too many of our “leaders” believe the Black poor are hopeless, so they just dazzle the masses with bullshit, but poor can be transformed if the culture around them changes.
New leaders are desperately needed
to change our urban culture. We need new black leaders who are specialist. We need leaders you will specialize in finance, business, real estate, the law, psychology, and education. Theses specialist have to show young African American students how run a business, and how to provide products and services for the Black community.
We also need black leaders that will take an issue and stay with it to the end. Will see someone become very passionate about an issue for a month or a year then just burn out. Enlightening the masses is hard job, because the masses are comfortable. When you spend a lot of time listening to the radio or watching a silly TV show or DVD you have very little time for enlightenment.
African Americans need leaders but not need any more religious leaders.
We have far too many religious “leaders”! We have prayed, and turned the other cheek long enough! African Americans need at the least a 144,000 young hell raisers!
The problem is organized religion is fear based, so it holds back African Americans from real enlightenment. Organized religion has the average Brother and Sista afraid of going to hell, but they must realize they are already living in hell. Especially if you are following a leader who is getting their haven while they live, and you live from paycheck to paycheck.
Many African American leaders are Christians, but they are afraid to truly become Christ like. Christ was a man of truth! He did not capitulate, grin and tap dance, or lick the boots of the Sadducees and Pharisees. Today’s Christian ministers ought to be ashamed of themselves. How many ministers tell their followers that the kingdom of heaven is within? How many ministers tell their followers to work together, pool their resources, and turn their neighborhoods into a haven on earth?
It would wonderful if we had leaders that would enlighten us to the point where we did not need leaders.
African American leaders want the masses to follow them, but we need leaders that will lead masses to themselves.
In this modern time, as we live in this new millennium, there still remain divisions between the young and the old, the dark skinned and the light skinned, the male and the female African Americans. Our leaders should be working to end theses divisions!
African Americans are a very confused people because real leaders rarely allowed on major radio or TV talk shows. The media in America gives us African Americans who are non-threathing. When we see these brothers and sisters on television they are very well read but they are conservatives or integrationist. The media producers keep the nationalist thinking African American leaders far away from the masses for fear they will wake up
It is all about mind control! It is all about controlling your thoughts! Who you are, where you live, and what you have, are all reflections of your thoughts. Willie Lynch conditioned the thoughts of the slaves and their thoughts were passed down from generation to generation. These are thoughts of fear, powerlessness, and distrust. You, the poor, the rich, or anyone else cannot become successful without the help of other people. It takes a unified force of thought to bring thought into material reality. This is how a individual or a community manifests their goals. It takes real thinking, a real plan, a real purpose, and some real action to achieve a goal. Manifesting a thought from your mind into a physical reality may take some time, but it can be done. You have done this for your self millions of times in your life.
It can take month after month, or year after year of positive actions before success is achieved, but success is inventible for the person that is committed to the quest.
Fear is the number one reason for failure! That is why the assistance of wise people is definitely needed to overcome one’s fears of failure. This is why leadership should encourage the masses of American Americans to think positive thoughts and work in a corporative manner.
Black leaders must teach the masses how to clear their minds and think with pure thoughts. If we had mind enlightening leaders, African Americans would be inspired to make every neighborhood safe and clean.
While we wait for the new leaders to emerge, it is up to ordinary people like you to lead the way. Yes, ordinary people like you! Your mission, it you choose to accept it, is to influence the influencers of popular culture. That means you have to call, write, e-mail, or go out in the streets and protest until you get their attention. Then tell the radio stations, television and motion picture producers exactly what you want!
Willie Lynch: Why African Americans Have So Many Issues
by Marc Sims
For fear of the young male’s life, she will
Psychologically train him to be mentally weak and
dependent buy physically strong.
The brothers have some serious problems! Every day African American men have to fight a covert racist society and the negative perceptions and realities of just being a black man. It’s damn near a loosing battle! It takes a whole lot of energy. Only a few brothers are strong enough to deal with the mental stress and strain of white supremacy. Too many brothers are not even aware of how white supremacy affects them. There are a whole lot of Brothers that are angry and they take their anger out on their families. Theses men are physically beating up their girl friends, their baby’s mama, their babies, or their own mother. There are thousands of young Brothers terrorizing African American neighborhoods. They are angry, but they will not take their anger out on the “White Man”! These Brothers do not have a historical awareness of institutional racism and White supremacy. We know it is not fashionable to blame “the white man,” but white men has a long history of holding down the progress of the Black man.
Please understand, a conscious black man is a direct threat to the United States white male dominated society.
White man is a minority, he is only a small percentage the earth’s human population so he uses fear and ignorance to rule over the human family.
In the days of slavery, white men knew they had to turn their African slaves into something they could control. So African men, women, and children were turned into Negroes. Today, most African American men are bourgeois Negroes, or ghetto Negroes; very few Black men are attempting to raise the consciousness of the masses. The unseen forces don’t want the masses to gain any awareness so the manufacturing of men with a Negro or ghetto mentality continues to be a massive 24/7 process.
The modern African American boy is mentally crushed in grammar school. They may have some promise in pre-school or kindergarten, but in first grade the process kicks in the high gear. By the time a boy gets to the six grade, the ball game is all most over! African American boys need to be seriously protected from the brain washing tactics of the United States educational system. Black boys come out of grammar school not loving their African heritage, their African American heritage, or themselves. Year after year we allow our boys to attend inferior public schools and then we wonder why they don’t like school. African American boys don’t like school because the school educators, administrators, and the American education system do not like African American boys. The African American boys that are forced by their parents to conform do well in school will tend to start acting “white”. The boys who do not conform tend to start acting like niggers!
For the sake of this argument, acting like white people means you have a dislike for the poor, or less educated African Americans. There is a real thin line between being educated and acting like white people. Children are not stupid and they know when a peer or adult is acting white. Children know when a teacher cares about them or when a teacher is out for themselves.
How many formally educated African American men really care about the masses of African Americans?
Our boys need an excellent education, but they also have to be taught to love themselves. Boys who hate themselves can grow up to become men who abuse their girlfriends, wives, mothers, or grandmothers. A young man who loves him self is least likely to commit suicide or cause harm to his family or his neighborhood.
Some boys grow up to become well-adjusted men, and boys grow up to become angry men. Special schools must be created for of our boys “bad” boys. These grammar schools should be built in the county so the boys are far away from the angry urban life! Think about it! The United States governments build prisons in the country, but these institutions are there to make sure African American men never realize their true potential.
There are so many black men in prison it would make a wise person think America’s public schools and state prisons are structured to stop the raise of a black messiah. The powers that be do not want to see a modern version of Martin Luther King or Malcolm X.
Black men are about six percent of the United State’s population and they are about fifty percent of the inmates in the various prisons throughout the United States. African Americans are disproportionately in prison, disproportionately college dropouts, and they are disproportionately murdered. One can easily see there is a grand conspiracy to control or destroy young black men, thus destabilizing the Black community.
The white man does not want to fairly compete with the black man on a mental or physical level. The black man is a very powerful human being. This is why the main goal of Willie Lynch was to separate the black man from the black woman. The black man is powerful and unstoppable when he works in unison with the black woman. Too bad the sisters and the brothers don’t work together; they have been bamboozled by Willie Lynch.
Some African American men are physically threatening! Some African American men are intellectually threatening! Some African American men are spiritually threatening! The White man is threatened by a Brother who has his stuff together.
There are plenty of successful African American men but the Brothers have one strong weakness, women, especially White women!
There was a time when black men were killed for talking to, or just looking at a white women. Now jungle fever is a way of life. We know it’s a challenge for any man to turn down some really good booty, but men can muster the energy to control themselves if they have real good reasons to control themselves. Far to may African American men are focused the their personal needs and not the needs of the African American Family. The White girls are focused on what they and they know what Black men want!
Most men have very simple needs. They want plenty of good food, good sports, and good sex! African American men want women to comfort them, not to constantly nag them! Sure, most men need to be aggressively encouraged, but not constantly nagged. The white woman knows men want like a king, so she will do what ever it takes to make the Black man feel like a king.
Today African American women have to compete all kind a women of color, and also the Black man’s desire for the White woman!
African American community has a chronic need for more African American families in our urban neighborhoods. We have too much chaos in our community because of the divisions between the African American women and men.
Willie Lynch is still in effect! He did an outstanding job getting us to distrust each other. It will take a few years of intense private meetings, community forums, movies, television and radio shows to eliminate our Willie Lynch conditioning. The challenge is getting our well-read African American men to display some of their knowledge and creativity in public. These brothers need to quit “sciencing” to each other and go out and “science” to our African American boys!
Teaching boy about their life in racist America is a formidable task but real men have to step in the ring and teach our boys how to triumph over the forces of evil. African American man and women have let Black men who are wise teach their boys the racist history of the United States and how present day America is still racist today. We cannot expect the public school system to teach Black boys properly.
“The village” has to teach our boys principles and values. For far too long the African American community have allowed African American men to abandon their children. Unfortunately we can’t teach old dogs, so we will have to focus our attention and our boys. They need to grow up in a community, a culture that doesn’t allow irresponsibility. Children should have the love of their father or at least one healthy relationship with a real man. A boy will have trouble becoming a responsible man if he is allowed to be irresponsible. So it is our responsibility; teachers, preachers, athletes, entertainers, all of us, must help the young boys in our community become responsible men.
