Defining the Black Direction by Daryl Bates
Imagine trying to prepare for something without knowing what you are preparing for. We wouldn't know what or how to prepare. Going scuba diving would require a different set of training, tools and preparation then that of hiking. Knowing where we are going will help us determine the tools that are needed.
Becoming A More Dynamic and Powerful Member of American Society
We must prepare to do battle and equip ourselves with the weapons of American societal warfare - Health, Wealth, Community, and Ownership. In American society, with these items in order - it demands notice. This is what we currently do not possess - without it we are weak. A wolf without the pack, even a strong wolf, isn't much of a problem. However, a pack full of strong healthy wolves, with direction is a major issue. The strength of the wolf is the pack, and the strength of the pack is the wolf. We as black people in America must be like the wolf in its prowess. The wolf knows it draws its strength from the pack. The wolf knows its ability to eat, fight, hunt and survive - relies on the pack. The wolf also realizes its individual health is its ticket to being a viable member of the pack. This is our direction in America. We must develop ourselves. Become and remain physically and mentally healthy. Become individually strong through wealth and ownership, develop our communities - together. If we want to stop police brutality - unfair laws and sentencing, we have to do it together. Because nobody picks on a wolf, when that wolf, belongs to a pack.
- Action Plan -
Whenever you can - buy black. Go out of your way to purchase from black owned businesses. This is exactly what other races do, when they come to this country. They understand, strength and community viability comes from the conscious effort of financial support through commerce. Share this site with another black person. Become a subscriber.
