A central premise of liberal Black thought states America is a racist country. Add our embattled ally Israel to that list too if recent internet hate are any indication of Left bias.
If we accept the racist premise that every city is a trap waiting to spring on urban boys and men, what is our personal responsibility?
It seems to me, especially in an economy on life support, that avoiding addictions and arrests top the list.
Imagine how expensive legal drugs like tobacco and alcohol are on ever thinning pockets? An estimated 14% of smokers income goes to their habit.
Bail bond; Probation; parole; fines; classes and other expenses associated with being a defendant or supervisee argue against the fleeting benefits of crime.
Especially in a society that hates urban boys and men, according to beloved liberal brethern,
My role on the streets is showing them how "racist" addictive and criminal behavior is against themselves. How do you impair reasoning; amass derogatory records and not expect an allegedly biased society to sanction you?
You do the White Boogey Man's job by providing ample ammunition to use against you. If affected boys and men don't get out of this outcast mentality, we'll have to write them off.
A down economy is the worst time to be an addict and/or criminal. Here in Louisiana, budget cuts reduce the amount of treatment and offender re-entry options available.
The only dependable program urban boys and men have is our behavior. Waiting for distant bureaucrats or philanthropists to rescue us is waiting in vain.
All we control is our conduct. Obama doesn't have a magic remote control he can press to make life better.
The foreseeable future looks challenging. Considering ourselves outcasts doesn't help matters.
We are citizens whether people like it or not. We pay the same taxes and are held to the same rules as those some say hate us for color alone.
Acting like outcasts throws you into the arms of addiction and state supervision.
If society is as racist as liberal brothers claim, why do their job for them?
Making peace with America starts with making peace within ourselves.
You can't drink; drug and thug your way to freedom.
I've seen to too many die who found out otherwise.
