When the lives and hopes of people are shattered, they tend to accept a defeatist attitude. Their spirit tends to be crushed and incapable of logically seeing through the circumstances; they become locked into a perpetual cycle of depravity in which darkness becomes the norm. But through these situations we find our character and strength when we connect back to the source of our true being. If we allow for our spirits to accept things as they are, we will never recognize the significance of redemption.
It’s time we stop acting like things are so ok, while kicking our feet up to relax, and putting our activism on the shelf to switch on our consciousness autopilot. We still have mass incarceration issues to deal with. The economics of our communities get worse by the moment, not better. We still have thousands of people who will die because they have no access to healthcare. True, some things are not constitutional rights, but we had to fight to get the constitution to reflect human rights. It didn’t drop out of the sky; a Great War was fought to ensure equal rights for my ancestors. I’m proud of the legacy of John Brown. He was a white man, totally unwilling to tolerate the inequality of slavery. But it appears now that we lack the compassion and dedication that’s needed to forge a new political reality. It appears that we are comfortable with indifference. This may be ok for some, but the masses are fed up.
It’s a new day! We don’t have to tolerate inequalities anymore. It’s our right to stand and demand justice, equality and recognition for our work.
Will you stand for what is right ?
Will you support the fight for our future ?
Will you stand by and allow your children’s future to be placed in the hands of people who only want praise and celebrity?
We have champions and we have posers.
Which ones are you willing to support ?
