When the Farmer spend is life time out in the rain and Sun, to plant and produce various kinds of food stuff, to feed and sustain the community and Nations, and he is treated in a very ungrateful manner, by the rulers who set the prices for goods, it is a very bad thing to do. Now if the Farmer does not produce any food in any Society, then all industry will close down and come to a stand still, because people have to eat, in order to nourish their structure, in order for them to go to work, and to keep the industries running. So if the Farmer stop from producing food, then the Hospitals, and all industries would be closed down and activities across each country would callapse. Now I am just using the Farmer as a reference, to point out how these Sysems which call them selves private investors and Government, can under pay and downpress, various kinds of productive workers, as essential as they may be, for the daily running of the various industries in the Societies in which we are living today. When one class of people, is so rejected to be paid what is called minimum wages, and another is paid maximum wages, and even more than maximum, then there is some dishonesty there, and it is deliberately done, because it is written in the laws of the legal system of the Governments.
Some people make $5.00 per hour, some make $10.00, some make $15.00 0r $20.00, but some make $1000.00 while there are others who make $20,000 or $200.000 per hour. So we are living in Societies which are creating various classes of people as we live from day to day, and these various classes of people, are being created as a result of the various amount of money, which each group earns, at the end of each year, not by the fact that we breathe the same fresh air, and benefit from the same rain drops, Sunlight and the envirnment of Mother Nature and Father Time.
So the masses of the people suffers, because a Doctors can charge you $500.00 for attention and medication, and a lawyer can charge you $400.00 per hour, when your full weeks pay, may only be $150.00 or $200.00. Well, I do not have to explain any further, since you all should know, that food, rent and other basic cost will have to come out of the very small wages, which is earned by the poor masses of people, in every society of this world in which we are presently living.
Now we can go back to Africa and Africans, the violence and genocides, which took place in the Congo, Rwanda, Dafur and other parts of Africa, took place as a result of Capitalism, it is and was Capitailism, which invaded, captured and kidnapped African humanity, and brutalized them across the Middle Passage, leaving their land and other properties in Mama Africa, including their families, since they could not take their land with them across the Middle Passage. Then they implemented the tactics of divide and rule, and Africa and Africans are still divided until this very day. Even the African Union which is the talk of the news today, their are heads of State who are members of the Union, who are still doing bad things to the masses of the people, This is some thing which we must look into and talk about it, considering that these are our people and their living conditions are very much degrading.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African People everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
