Anything helps people..we all we got. We have to build and re-build our communities, for the youths.
No need to be selfish, we all have an expiration date. The little good you do, will go a long way!
We build our communities up by building up our youths as they're the future!
How do we give back to the youth? How are we able to reach them and help them? We must “meet them where they are”. When we come home to Plymouth, the place to meet the youth is at Adam Street’s basketball court. Adam Street’s basketball court is a special place in the community where many have spent with family or friends playing basketball, and many still do. As many as 20 kids can be seen playing basketball at any given time there. The court is dilapidated, outdated, and has many unsafe elements that we would like to improve and replace.
We came across this documentary/movie last night and wanted to share the importance of such movie. If you haven't see it, we highly suggest to take some time and watch. "Mully" is based out of Kenya. Take away from this movie..self-sustainment, ownership, hope and unwavering because there are other people that genuinely need our help domestic and foreign.
This is why, self-sustainment is truly important because the need to be dependent on this system of white supremacy will wither away. Your goal is bigger than just you. Each One, Teach One.
We need to see our Black brothers and sisters as our ACTUAL brothers and sisters instead of just another person because if this had happened to one of them, we'd be making more noise.
We talk about "If anything happens to my family"..well..Black people with no relations are STILL our family and when circumstances such as these arise, the family thing to do is open up and don't be silent.
Put pressure on these investigative organizations to DO THEIR JOB. Better yet, create our OWN investigative organization!
A debate can be healthy without all the disrespect.
If our message do not align with each other, then we can find ways to work on that and NOT be disrespectful. If you have more experience in a subject area, then let's talk about it.
We are NOT illiterates.
Whatever we agree on, we should be working on those things. We seem to find soo much energy on what we don't agree on when that energy could be utilized for our benefit like economic empowerment!
So a while back i was back up north in Chicago and i helped the youth department in Midlothian, IL with a creative mural piece . My Concept was for the Dr. Seuss Idea and i am glad to say i was apart of something postive at least . One step at a time we can make it positve if we work with each other and drive that creative spirit in all directions. I am glad to see that it was brought to fruition .
