The Ten DEADLIEST ENEMIES of The Black Community...

*Ever wonder why things are the way they are? What you see in some areas within the Black Community today are the effects of CHOICES made decades prior. Here is a list of the 10 worst enemies of the Black community:

1.) Irresponsible Baby Breeders( Why are so many woman having children they can't afford? )
2.) Absentee fathers(It takes a man to MAKE A MAN !)
3.) Criminals that degrade their communities with their behavior and lack of moral values
4.) Dysfunctional families
5.) Parents that won't discipline their children
6.) Materialism
7.) Class bigotry
8.) Lack of solidarity in communities
9.) Churches that don't care
10.) Uncaring neighbors

Notice that I didn't include the KKK or White America as being the main culprits of the many of the problems that are existent in some areas of the Black community today.

The above issues are the main ingredients that created the problems facing many communities in Black America.

Sometimes, we are the enemy and if we don't care about who we are as a people; then we should not expect others to care either.

It all starts and ends with US .

I wholeheartedly agreed with everything listed, amongst a few others. And while it's certainly true that it begins with Us, it's also fair to say that one shouldn't hold their breath in anticipation of the revolution.

Revolutions are usually sparked by economic disparities between the have and have-nots.

What is wrong with some Black people is the disparity of education about themselves, their history and the reality of how much racism has impacted our people psychologically over time.

Completely agree with everything you said. Our community is lacking knowledge of our own history. How tragic is that.
