Do Some Things Stay The Same?
Today I thought I'd do something different and have an old school concert. Music is something that has always brought people together. That's why I like old school music because it had meaning and sometimes it was prophetic if you think about it. Does the world really keep on spinning or do we as human beings keep walking in circles and wind up back where we started from? Listen to the words of each song carefully and afterwards I'd like to hear your views on how much we've progressed.
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
