It seems like for decades following Proclamation 95, but more notably desegregation in the United States, there’s been a concerted effort to demonize, dehumanize, and disarm African Americans’ socioeconomic strength. Even African Americans’ capacity to procreate appeared to be consistently under attack.
To counter and defend against such profoundly wicked attacks, African Americans must put forth efforts stronger than those used to impede their natural birthrights. Furthermore, African Americans must inhibit obstacles that weaken their health, spirit, and economic resilience. Needless to say, if African Americans are unwilling to accept things for how they really are and are unable to come together to mitigate them, then they will self-destruct as a culture and ethnic group and not as a mass of unrelated persons.
African Americans’ approach has to be as unpretentious as they begin the arduous affair of empowering each other. African Americans must be unyielding—using knowledge as a weapon, aggressive wealth sharing, and deeds of fidelity—to secure their futures in an imperfect United States of America. More importantly, African Americans need to take a “no good man should be left behind” stance. African Americans need strong Black men to comprise the greater America that its ethnic group and culture live in, not emasculated and debilitated ones.
All things considered, cultural wealth comprises health, riches, pertinent infrastructure, and high living standards, with the ability to reciprocate and sustain it over many generations at a time.
