WAKE UP AND LIVE THE DREAM

What happened to honor, dignity, self-respect, purpose, and love. We have moved so far away from the moral compass until it is indescribable. There are endless theories on the genesis of values erosion in the African American race; however, the root of the problem is ingratitude. We have become calloused and ungrateful to our ancestors, the civil rights movement and Martin. If somehow we could reprogram the minds of African Americans between the ages of fourteen and twenty-five we would take our rightful place in society and be the movers and shakers God anointed us to be. Oh but there is so much competition [fashion, music, tattoos, tramp stamps, drugs, weapons, and drama]. Recalibrate your thinking, kill ignorance [not one another], fight stupidity, and live the dream our beloved Martin Luther King, Jr. imagined and died for.
