Yes, when I was 13 and 14 I denied racism existed. It's sad to say, but until I had my calling I used to support conservative values. Plus, I always said that the people in the hood were there by their own admission :snoop: However, as I've gotten older by 16 my views started to change :yeshrug: My people are mostly oppressed and are a victim of the oligarch system/white supremacy. Plus, unequal job opportunity/institutional racism. I'm glad I became aware and not that type anymore :jawalrus: I was kinda pro business too and used to say a poor person could get a job if they wanted.


Moral of the story, don't think you are better than the next man standing beside you. We are all people that bleed the same. I used to be judgmental, a know-it-all, and selfish. Trust me, you don't want to be that guy. Some conservative values I still respect as a Democratic-Socialist/Social-Democrat.

I'm proud to be of the 99%.

Yep, I used to be that breh :francis: My mother taking me to Alabama in 2010 changed that. Especially, when I went to the Civil Rights Museum. Just loved my African heritage ever-since. Also, I posted this because some of our people carry that uppity mindset and its sad :snoop:

Yo, I lowkey though that Sheriff David Clarke discovered the Coli and got his wakeup call based on that OP title.:mjlol:
Now, that guy is sick. If this site was alive in 08 and I was on here you'd be talking to a McCain supporter :snoop: Can't believe I supported that warhawk at 14. Voted for :obama: in 2012 doe.

Social-Democracy ideology in America won't help Black people. That's why Bernie Sanders is against reparations. :francis:

We have our different views on reparations. In my view, I don't think we should be given money. I want the urban areas to be invested and we have legislature to give us grants to start our own businesses. Then, we can network with our diaspora brothers in Jamaica, Brazil, and parts of Africa. I did like what Trump said about helping the AA's in the urban community. He's right on the failing infrastructure in those communities. This is coming from a person voting 3rd party.

:what: unlike you I'm not scared of the person I used to be.
Neither am I. If I was scared of who I was or wanted to be accepted by the others out of a fear of a lack of conformity I'd sound just like you.

I remember a time where you were told to never speak on or ask about your personal finances, religious beliefs or political opinions. Now we live in a day where a$$holes across the world share uneducated opinions on a universal platform called the internet thinking that their opinion carrys more weight than it really does

The biggest problem in our culture is the fact you have so many secular groups playing divide and conquer with individuals and utilizing peoples emotions as ammunition for a far greater agenda that goes beyond either yours or mine comprehension of society and the world

Average people such as you think short term, look at the world in a small mindframe and can offer nothing to the world beyond your basic, average opinions forcefed to you through facebook videos and twitter trends

How do I think short-term? I'm the biggest realist you'd ever encounter.
