I know most of you do not fall in the category of BLACKS DON'T READ
This is a piece that a Caucasian wrote and was read on a New York radio station by a Black student regarding Blacks.
THEY ARE STILL OUR SLAVES We can continue to reap profits from the Blacks without the effort of physical slavery Look at the current methods of containment that they use on themselves : IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.
Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once said, "The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in a book." We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the opportunity to read any book on any subject through the efforts of their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are numerous books readily available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.com, not to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid blueprints to reach economic equality (which should of been their fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all.
GREED is another weapon of containment, Blacks, since the abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their disposal. Last year they spent over 10 million dollars during Christmas, out of their 450 billion dollars in total income (2.22%).
Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture we care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it. Being primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed. They continually want more, with little thought for saving & investing.
They would rather buy new sneakers than invest in starting a business. Some even neglect their children to have the latest Polo or Red Monkeys, And they still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house gives them "Status" or that they have achieved their Dream.
They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty because their greed holds them back from collectively making better communities.
With the help of BET, and the rest of there media that often broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue to see huge profits like those of Timberland and Nike. They'll continue to show off to each other while we build solid communities with the profits from our businesses that we market to them.
SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the major ways we continue to contain them. One of their own, W.E.B Dubois said that there was an innate division in their culture. A "Talented Tenth" he called it. He was correct in his deduction that there are segments of their culture that has achieved some "form" of success. However, that segment missed the fullness of his work. They didn't read that the "Talented Tenth" was then responsible to aid The Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life. Instead, that segment has created another class, a Buppie class that looks down on their people or aides them in a condescending manner. They will never achieve what we have. Their selfishness will not allow them to able to work together on any project or endeavor of substance. When they do get together, their selfishness lets their EGOS get the way of their goal. Their so-called help organizations seem to only want to promote their name without making any real change in their communities.
They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels, and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best speakers, not the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness? They steadfastly refuse to see that TOGETHER EACH ACHIEVES MORE (TEAM)
They do not understand that they are no better than each other because of what they own, as a matter of fact, most of those Buppies are but one or two pay checks away from poverty. All of which is under the control of our of our pens in our offices and our rooms.
Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to READ, continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are "helping" their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little other than hold lavish conventions in our establishments. By the way, don't worry about any of them reading this letter, remember, THEY DON'T READ!!!!
