First and foremost, you have judged most Black people, what a generalization of a people. Secondly, It appears that you have painted too big of a picture with a broad brush, broad in a sense that you stated most Black people. Do you know most black people?
People only know what they know, therefore, in some instances that I am aware of, many times people are unaware of what they have done wrong, it wasn't until I called them on it, they are apologetic and many times sincerely didn't realize what they had done One must remember, it is a mind set, we as a people have not yet learned abstracted thinking, therefore, on many occasions, I find myself dealing with people that have a one track mind. They can't in vision because they were taught a certain way, be it religion, the system, etc, works in a certain manner. It is very difficult to uncondition a person's mind set's, especially African Americans that have been taught in a certain manner. I can think of a multitude of examples; however, I will use one that I feel most appropriate.
Examples, here in Calif. we have groups that are dealing with "Three Strikes Laws", Children Protective Services, Criminal Courts, Probate etc. What I've attempted to share with them is that these situations are only branches, yes, branches tied to a tree and the tree being the courts.
My feeling is this, as opposed to fighting different fronts; thus, keeping us divided, let's place all the branches under one umbrella and call it civil rights violations for being denied the right to Due Process in the courts, based upon the fact that all of the so-called branches are receiving the same results from the courts, which is the tree and the people are losing.
What I later discover is that a person is so fixed upon their particular case, they argue with you saying "the courts can't do this and that", or what does CPS have to do with criminal cases etc,.(They can't see the common tie is lack of Due Process, too busy looking at his branch) they continue to believe in a system that continues to blatantly demonstrates to the public at large that they aren't following any laws, this is one example of a person that continues to hold unto what they've have been taught . This ultimately brings negativity into the game because they are now mad because I am only attempting to teach them something, they can't see the obvious which goes to their in ability to abstract think.( sometime abstract thinking goes against what one was taught) Now we continue to divide, thus bringing about more negativity which ultimately produce new groups competing with one another never really accomplishing anything. Bottom line, this is nothing more than a mind set, an inability to have abstracted thinking and a feeling of low self esteem.
I found in my experiences that some people that I have known personally only want a title, they are ineffective, low self esteem, hold positions for ceremonial purposes and have allowed a group and/or a community to decline all in an effort to hold unto a title, all for self image. As I have often said, we are sick, four-hundred years of slavery, freed, and no therapy. What do you expect!!
Lastly, it isn't a sin not to know something, the sin is when you don't know and you don't know that you don't know. I could elaborate more; however, for the sake of not going negative myself, I decline.
