I duff my hat for you... I wish all of us understand that no one is left out in this mess. It's not black and white, it's injustice and ignorance. We need to talk our way into a healthy future.

 

We have to look instead at what we are missing or losing by hurting each other. It is not by chance that we have each other. Life without our neighbors will not be sweet. The more we love the more secure and protected our communities are.

 

My childhood was in an African village. I felt incredibly secure growing up, because I had my brothers, sisters, mother, father, aunts, uncles, nephews, neighbors and the rest of the village watching over me. We went out at nights in still darkness without lights. We were afraid of nothing except wild animals like lions and tigers that could harm us. We always knew that if we had trouble away from home a neighbor or passerby will take us home safely. We went to school on foot tens of miles away without supervision. Everybody was his brother’s keeper.

 

Where has that gone to? Why are we hating and hurting each other? I have tried to figure out why we cannot apply simple logic to understand that to hurt another person is to create a negative vibration that will come back to haunt us.

 

We are living life in the reverse. We all have infinite resource of abundant love to give away. The more you give away love the more you attract it to yourself. It is a universal rule. We can only reap what we sow. Our entire world is hurting as a result of our attitudes towards each other. How could we be missing such a wonderful opportunity we have to create and enjoy a paradise with everything?

 

Our ignorance shocks me. In 2009 I was in a comma and life support machine for 43 days. I was shown our world how it would have been if we were conscious of what it is that we have. Coupled with other experiences I had when I was near death I have never been that same again. I am hurting inside for us humans. We act like children who have no control and know nothing. But we brag and think we know a lot. Our ignorance is gradually killing us.

 

Love will feed and cloths all of us. Each and every one of us will be satisfied if we abandon greed and hate. My father died when I was fifteen, I quickly learned something that saved my life and made me who I am today. Love, forgiveness and sharing the little I have with others no mater my situation. I love human beings, I truly love us. I try very hard not to do anything that will cause pain in another person's life including animals and plants. I treat plants and nature with respect because they are all alive and part of us. We cannot exist without them. To me it is a duty, it is a calling, it is an obligation. This shows in my daily life and my business. If my life is not about people let me not have a life. I do not want it.

 

We are hurting each other with our ignorance. We need to begin reprograming our minds to accept the reality we left behind which is found in protecting and loving each other for our own safety and happiness.

 

Your idea of a t-shirt amazes me because that is what I am doing. Mine is "the spirit of a true rhino." But I have a wonderful project towards this. We have to do something and if you are interested we can talk and I will show you what my foundation is already doing. We can work together to keep pushing this idea through this type of effort. There is another way to make life worth living for everyone; it is called conscious living “Love.”

Obama has not been America's leader for 200 years. He did not start the problem of America, he is not the problem of America. He cannot undo a system that has been systematically constructed, and perfected for more than two hundred years. Anybody who blames Obama for not resolving the problems of America makes him or herself look unreasonable.

 

Obama did not start the war in Iraq, he did not start the war in Afganistan, he did not create Gwantanamo, he did not create the prisons with more than 4 million people. He did not create the economic crisis; he did not destroy the wall trade center. Obama is not the sole decision maker in Washington. Obama is the first black president just after a couple of years from shameful slavery. Obama did not come to repay all the debts America owes as a result of the uncontrolled spending behaviors of 1 percent of America. Please stop blaming black people for anything. It is insulting.

 

Accept facts that are real and honest. One black man cannot resolve the problems an entire country created in more than 200 years. Obama cannot resolve these problems in 8 years while he is not even given any opportunity to make change he promised. What you are doing is called black mail. Black mail is an evil adventure.

Here is an excellent article from one of the most hated men in America...Bill O'Reilly.Because he is on Fox News some people put no stock in what he has to say. He was a high school teacher himself and as a result has come cred in my mind.I agree with the following statement in this article... The main point here is that President Obama is not all that interested in what works because his educational agenda is tied into his social justice agenda. He firmly believes that America is not, is not a fair place. This statement goes back to his feelings on colonialism beliefs. Take it for what it's worth but I fully believe what Bill's saying.

Quoting bepositive:

There was the Holocaust, WW1 and WW2, 9/11, Genocides.......the list goes on and on.  Every race or religion has a past!!!  Do we really need to blame the past on how we are now??    

 

I was born in Germany and was called a Nazi when we immigrated to the US in the 50's.  I didn't go around killing people because of it!!

 

The key word is educating people.  Show people what a kind, generous, loving person you are and they will see you for YOU not what you went through.

 

I am pretty much tired of the "race card' or "religion card" or whatever card is put down.  The way a person or persons act will define them in life not the color they are.



 

Please "Bepositve" this is not a race card neither is it a tv show, this is real life and what is still happening right now. Let's keep the black violence aside for a minute. Let me use my personal experience rather than using stories I read, watch or hear in the news.

 

I am a black African married to a white woman. I came straight and fresh from Africa, I had never experienced any form of slavery, neither the entire generations of my family. While we just got married and living in New York, we went out looking for a home to rent. White people will not rent us a home because of me. How did I know that? After going out looking for homes for close to a month people rejected us all the time.

 

My wife understood what was going on but she was ashamed to tell me. One day she got very frustrated about the whole deal and told me; "the reason why we cannot get a home is because we are inter racial." O-kay!!!? She said if she went out alone she will get a home, and I said; "ride on." She went out the next day and came back with a lease. Once I saw what happened I did everything in my wife's name. Guess what? She got me. She used it to control me for seven years and ended up taking away everything we had in that marriage somewhere down the line. You do not mean to tell me that is not racism and its aftermath, will you? Trust me I am not mad because I understand the problem. It is ignorance.

 

Now, Comparing the Holocaust, ww1, ww2, 9/11 Genocides with slavery that span hundreds of years is not fair. Slavery cannot be compared to war torn situations that lasts just a couple of years. Experience has shown that for a country to recover from war and its effects will take at most 50 years. But slavery that spans hundreds of years cannot take just fifty years especially when after it is abolish it is still being reinforced in various ways. I will not talk against Holocaust because neither my I nor family did experience it. Trying to down paly its effects on it victims will flair tempers. We have seen that time and again. Insanity is insanity, there are no two ways going about it

 

Slavery was not just about getting victims to work, the slavery process included the slaves and their entire families and offspring systematically brainwashed to act a certain way towards each other so that the master will stay in control. In fact teaching slave masters how to break slaves and how to enslave the black slave for at least 300 years was a fundamental part of the slavery. Go online now and search for this letter... "Willie Lynch: The making of a slave." May be it will give you another light on the experience of black people in American right at this moment.

 

Please do not get me wrong. This is not a problem of one race. Everyone is in this. You do not have to wave this. This is reality and it's only when we accept this reality and focus on removing the obstacles we can make life better for everyone. If we think we will just brush away something so fundamental and go ahead to live as if nothing is happening it will not be possible because people are still suffering.

Brother, you need to live as a black person in a white world for 24 hours then you will never ever say that again. I am not saying here that people should hurt and hate each other. But the best approach to resolving a problem is to recognize it exists. The fact that you are trying to ignore what black people have gone through and what they are still going through is tatamount to saying who cares what they are going through? Guess what? That does not take away the problems that you and my children will grow up and face. It is goin to be there so long as it is not recognized it exists.

 

You did not hear me say black people should pick up guns and go after white people for what they have been or going through. I said we need to talk our way into a healthy coexistence. Unfortunately your idea is an insult to everybody both black and white.

Quoting Hoping4Love2000:

BREAKING IT DOWN:

 

YOU:

All these statistics do not stop violence.

 

 
ME:

 

The statistics, which are not a "survey," but actual TRUTH show where the VIOLENCE stems and it lies in the black community far above anyone else's community...

 

YOU:

 

What stops violence is consciousness. Peple need to be conscious of the past how it affects the present and what to do about it. When you intill a culture of violence in people you should not expect anything differnt. What makes black people violent in America is the same thing that creates wars in Africa. Money, guns, bombs and weapons of mass destruction. Black people never invented any of the above.

 

ME:

Then the black community needs to TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND STOP THEIR VIOLENCE! How can you say white people started it when blacks are KILLING ONE ANOTHER at an alarming rate. If it were about "race," and slavery, they'd be killing whites. The statement regarding white people making guns and weapons creating violence is drenched with "self loathing" and makes about as much sense as saying whoever invented ice cream is the cause for America's obesity problem. 

 

YOU:

 

Slavery is the root of the violence among black Americans. They were brutalised, raped, enslaved, opressed and that is what they grow up with. It is a culture from slave masteras.

 

ME:

WHO IS "THEY?"


Stop whining over something you never endured. That would be akin to my great, great grandchildren "blaming" their lives on the abuse I suffered. People make CHOICES.... and those choices effect their lives as well as others. DR. Ben Carson CHOSE to study hard and become a doctor. Obama CHOSE to go to school and receive an education and become an attorney, as did his wife. Colonel Powell CHOSE to join military and make a difference. King CHOSE to make something of his life.

 

For EVERY TIME someone cries RACISM, it not only sets back that community, but it also INSULTS all those who have moved forward and made something of their lives. YOU and NO BLACK PERSON ALIVE endured "slavery".. so just STOP with the excuses for poor behavior!  We've ALL endured "something" in our lives, but not a soul alive has ever endured "slavery!" What if those young women who were held captive for years and years who were recently found allowed their abuse to stand in the way? Those women actually DID endure "slavery," so STOP WHINING about something you never endured. And WHY? B/C white man fought for your rights and now, your "rights" infringe on mine.  

YOU:

 

The wars in Africa are are incited by foreigners who want the resources in Africa. They come with hate, greed, and manipulate Afrcans to pick up arms against each other when they have been stiffled and made broke.

 

ME:

 

79.9% of South Africa are black and 9.2% are white... So STOP blaming the white man...
 
 
YOU:

 

I do not speak on behalf of black people; I know some people may think that because I have a black skin I am supporting blacks. Most if not all my freinds are very conscious white fokes and they do not like the situation all of us are creating blacks and whites. If you are not black then you have no idea what it means to be black.

 

ME: 

 

"ALL OF US" aren't "creating" situations. People who LIVE IN THE PAST THEY NEVER ENDURED AND WHINE ABOUT IT, CREATE "SITUATIONS." 

 

YOU:

 

Do you understand what it means to be hated or discriminated against just because of your skin?

 

ME:

 

Actually, YES! I  cannot have a "White Chamber of Commerce," a "White" Miss America pageant or even an ONLY WHITE Barbie doll.... or I would be called RACIST....

ALL DUE TO THE COLOUR OF MY SKIN....

 

YOU:

 

Everytime a black man walks down the streets he has to be alert just because he might be stopped abd accused of something he has no idea about.

 

ME:

 

Then perhaps the black communities need to put down their guns, stop killing one another and shake hands so they can be viewed differently. But, when half the MURERS are committed by a specific race comprising only 13% of a population, the way they are viewed won't change UNTIL THEY CHANGE....

 

 

Although I do not feel we asked the proper questions, etc in the Martin case.... This ONE SINGLE CASE has NOTHING to do with the stats of the state of the UNITED STATES...

 

And now people want to use it as a crutch! Zimmer isn't even white and they still cry racism! 

 

When people quit "blaming" others and the LONG AGO PAST for their grievances, that is when they can FINALLY MOVE FORWARD...  

 

If it were truly "that difficult" to prevail, we wouldn't be living in a nation with a BLACK President, 2 terms in a row... black surgeon generlas, black judges, stock brokers, politicians and get this. even black Republicans! 

 

YES, WHITES comprise almost 80% of USA, but all those RACIST BIGOTS voted for the BLACK MAN... 

 

There aren't enough blacks to out-vote whites if the majority of white people were prejudice. 

 

Do the math----- 
 
Take responsbility where it lies in your life

And stop whining! 

 

If whites were sooooooo prejudice, we wouldn't have a black President! 



 

Dang, between you (Hoping) and Liv, I can just go on vacation. Justsimplicity, be a part of the solution not the problem.  You can't because your own race will turn on you.  I've seen it many times.  A argument among the city council in B'ham, Alabama where a black lady got into a argument with the black mayor on whom was blacker  It's just stupid...racism against ones own color.  When will the excuses  end and people take responsibility for their own actions and the stereotype of their race?  Stereotypes happen for a reason.  When you mention slavery you must remember that it was the black race which sold it's own people into slavery.  You must also remember that when slaves were freed that some didn't want to leave, some slave owner were like family and good.  Doesn't make it right, just saying.  But that is history and I know of no one that is still alive that was a slave or a slave owner in America.  Time to stop using that one as a excuse, times have changed.  People are tired of the race card.

Quoting wwww12345:

Thugs, want-to-be gangsters, gangsters, and druggies usually don't live long.. Unfortunately, they usually hurt a lot of other people before they expire.



wwww12345, The problem is that there is glorification of the gangster culture, how can we expect change?  Where is the change Obama promised?  Do you believe it is getting worse or better?  And I agree.

Quoting Hoping4Love2000:

According to the BUREAU OF JUSTICE----

 

Whites, at least in 2005, killed other whites by 85%.

 

Overhwelmingly, black on black murder? 93%

 

While I totally agree with you on violence and crime and the nastiness surrounding our beautiful nation..... 

 

I hold issue with our President staking claim to the Martin murder and saying, "My son would have looked much like Trayvon." 

 

What does THAT mean? 

 

If the President wants to cry for ANY CHILDREN THAT COULD LOOK LIKE HIS? He needs to hit the streets of Detroit and Chicago, and talk to them..... 

 

See, this IS a "RACE" issue at the end of the day... 

 

Black boys and young black men are KILLING EACH OTHER at an INCREDIBLE and almost DIS-BELIEVING rate, but I have yet to see Obama walk the streets or hold a press conference to tell THOSE BOYS of the HOPE they have to make good lives for themselves....

 

MURDER is HORRIFIC for ANY AGE and ANY RACE..... But the MAJORITY of HOMICIDES are due to Gang Violence--- 

 

And I don't know how to "FIX" that.. 

 

I left the Chicago area in 1999 due to violence, and California in 1990, due to 

VIOLENCE.... 

 

I hated the violence outside Atlanta, and now I see it in Columbia!

 

You can't reason with animals....

 

And I'm afraid I don't have the faintest clue how to reach them. 

 

Now I want out of Columbia---- 

 

4 year old (guessing she is black as her name is Zahara) shot the other day by stray bullet while watchng tv in her apartment --- by a BLACK MAN. He is said to have been a gang suspect and they suspect this is a gang related shooting. (Thank God, I think the little one is ok now!) 

 

Mother of 4 (white) shot while working in a bakery early hours of morning to spend more time with kids out of school... KILLERS? Two 18 year olds an a 16 year old--- ALL BLACK.

 

So yes, white people, especially males, DO KILL- but when whites make up 77% of poulation and blacks make up 13%---

 

What I find most alarming is almost the same amount of blacks are falling prey to their OWN RACE when black is barely a blimp on the radar scale....

 

I do NOT find ANY of this relevant to the Martin case. That case is a FLUKE, not the norm of crimes, and I reserve conjecture on that standing.. 

 

But CDC and Justice Department stats don't lie.... 

 

It's a shame to see so many black individuals thrive, as even Obama has, and so many do not.

 

EDUCATION? REHABILITATION? WINNING WAR ON DRUGS? 

 

Sadly, I have no answers... 

 

It certanly sounds like Africa was a much mre peaceful place to live, despite worrying over ferocious lions and nasty snakes!

 

The lions we have here are lost souls who live in GANGS, and are addicted to drugs and violence.

 

**If anyone holds issue w/ the stats I posted... 

TAKE IT UP WITH THE CDC and BUREAU OF JUSTICE.... 

I MERELY SPEAK THE TRUTH!!!

 

Picture below taken from DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE 2005

 

 

 


Very nice, Hoping.  I agree totally.  Obama should have kept his trap shut.  If he were not President, I wouldn't have a problem with what he said.  But if you think about it...did it sound racist?  "My son would have looked much like Trayvon."  Does that mean if Trayvon  were not black then it would be less important?  If a Asian, White, Hispanic young man lost his life, that would not have looked like Obama, would that make it less important or tragic? Maybe I shouldn't go that far, but it definitely could be taken that way.


 

I'll give you a start to helping the problem of Black on Black murders.  If the racist civil rights leaders would place the same priority in going into cities such as Chicago and protesting/educating then that would surely be a start.  So why don't they?  Because they make their living dividing the races, inciting separation among races.  You can add the media to that also...a story doesn't sell unless the media can get the folks upset.  Then they can keep them hooked.

 

Hoping you did a awesome job with this one. Kudos!

 

I just edited to say one other thing.  There is a hip coolness among the young black culture in American pertaining to gangs and being thugs.  This is glorified in rap music, which brainwashes the youth.  This needs to be changed or the violence will continue. Do we allow freedom of speech to sometimes go to far?  If it results in violence then which would be better, to save a life or give someone the right to glorify violence under freedom of speech?

I wonder where in Africa you have tigers...

 

Other than that, you're description of feeling safe because you had family watch over you and your siblngs is something that is often missing in modern Western society.

While I totally agree with you on violence and crime and the nastiness surrounding our beautiful nation..... 

 

I hold issue with our President staking claim to the Martin murder and saying, "My son would have looked much like Trayvon." 

 

What does THAT mean? 

 

If the President wants to cry for ANY CHILDREN THAT COULD LOOK LIKE HIS? He needs to hit the streets of Detroit and Chicago, and talk to them..... 

 

See, this IS a "RACE" issue at the end of the day... 

 

Black boys and young black men are KILLING EACH OTHER at an INCREDIBLE and almost DIS-BELIEVING rate, but I have yet to see Obama walk the streets or hold a press conference to tell THOSE BOYS of the HOPE they have to make good lives for themselves....

 

MURDER is HORRIFIC for ANY AGE and ANY RACE..... But the MAJORITY of HOMICIDES are due to Gang Violence--- 

 

And I don't know how to "FIX" that.. 

 

I left the Chicago area in 1999 due to violence, and California in 1990, due to 

VIOLENCE.... 

 

I hated the violence outside Atlanta, and now I see it in Columbia!

 

You can't reason with animals....

 

And I'm afraid I don't have the faintest clue how to reach them. 

 

Now I want out of Columbia---- 

 

4 year old (guessing she is black as her name is Zahara) shot the other day by stray bullet while watchng tv in her apartment --- by a BLACK MAN. He is said to have been a gang suspect and they suspect this is a gang related shooting. (Thank God, I think the little one is ok now!) 

 

Mother of 4 (white) shot while working in a bakery early hours of morning to spend more time with kids out of school... KILLERS? Two 18 year olds an a 16 year old--- ALL BLACK.

 

So yes, white people, especially males, DO KILL- but when whites make up 77% of poulation and blacks make up 13%---

 

What I find most alarming is almost the same amount of blacks are falling prey to their OWN RACE when black is barely a blimp on the radar scale....

 

I do NOT find ANY of this relevant to the Martin case. That case is a FLUKE, not the norm of crimes, and I reserve conjecture on that standing.. 

 

But CDC and Justice Department stats don't lie.... 

 

It's a shame to see so many black individuals thrive, as even Obama has, and so many do not.

 

EDUCATION? REHABILITATION? WINNING WAR ON DRUGS? 

 

Sadly, I have no answers... 

 

It certanly sounds like Africa was a much mre peaceful place to live, despite worrying over ferocious lions and nasty snakes!

 

The lions we have here are lost souls who live in GANGS, and are addicted to drugs and violence.

 

**If anyone holds issue w/ the stats I posted... 

TAKE IT UP WITH THE CDC and BUREAU OF JUSTICE.... 

I MERELY SPEAK THE TRUTH!!!

Now that this has been CLARIFIED and is not my "opinion."

 

 

 

Let's go to MURDERS... 

 

 

 

Fact is- Although "Blacks" make up only 13.1% of the population in the U.S., the MURDER rate is overwhelmingly, neck and neck with "White" murder victims. 

 

EVERYONE REVIEWING- NOTE:

 

White WOMEN are MORE LIKELY to be MURDERED than Black WOMEN.....

WELCOME again JUSTSIMPLICITY---

 

I could "feel" the anguish in your words as I read, and I no doubt feel the same. 

 

The recent Treyvon Martin case has set emotions at a high level; and, though I do not feel I have enough "evidence" to qualify a verdict, it doesn't ease the horror I feel when my mind wanders to the incident. 

 

I do wish to state some FACTS however.....

 

FACT:

 

African-Americans make up 13.1% of the U.S. Population. (CDC) 

WHITES make up 77.9%

(I prefer to BACK UP my findings by LEGITIMATE means... This is directly from the CDC)
