You completely missed my point brother. The point is, they have NO reason to stay out of our business. Why should a white person enjoying all the privileges of being white willing give up any of that? I'm saying yes, we know it, especially as Rasta, how the system works, but it's as if we (black people in general) still expect massa to decide to give us a bigger piece of the pie. Educate the children about how the system works, not so that they can grow up and complain about it, but so that they don't expect anything to be given to them, they need to accomplish on their own. We need that strength in our community, instead of resignation to the fact that life is 'hard'. We need to take our rightful place in society, not hope that white people will give us a place just below them.
By the way, of course they're going to fight us, did we expect them to just sit by and let the black man rise? Let's gain strength and unity through their adversity!
Love And Peace,
