My goal is to live as if our only option is peace. We must not be afraid to fight for what is right. If the message is painful to hear by the guilty so they must silence you. Malcolm X spent his last years constantly in fear for his family, but knew he had a message for his people.
Some of Malcolm’s Muslim brothers didn’t approve of unification and embracing all races. Malcolm lived looking over his shoulder and outside of his window. Malcolm X foreshadowed his own demise and he wasn’t wrong. We must look at the state of the world we are living in, that message of inner strength and self-pride is mandatory.
We have forgotten that we have other options in this world. We don’t have to hate and we don’t have to kill our own men. Who are you helping when you take a father from his son? Love your brothers no matter what color they represent. You must “respect the blood” of the activist that made it possible for your freedom and integration. GRAPHIC FOOTAGE
The people who are supposed to protect you will be the first to end your life, and get angry when a police man does it. It is awful when a police murders us and it is irresponsible. Say what you will, but the only difference from George Zimmerman and the killers of our people in Chiraq is the color of their skin.
We are brainwashed thanks, to our Willie Lynch mind-set and media obsession with skin color. We are embarrassed with our nappy hair. Does that make yourself more European? We have natural hair treatment that we used to avoid nappy hair. You can add extensions and weave with an silkier texture. It still does not mean you are unhappy with your race. Weave has a negative connotation and women debate, and have to defend the ideology of weave. Now, the skin bleaching cream is a horse of another color (no hair pun intended) because it is shameful that you hate your skin.
” I Was tired of being ugly.”
Even in songs people want a “Yellow” women like it is a trophy. When did black become ugly? Black became ugly during slavery and the House Slaves were usually mulattoes. The darker skinned slaves were treated as second class slaves and were required to be in the field. Our generation wouldn’t doubt their beauty unless this hatred is taught. We stopped loving ourselves.
You can’t leave your job dark-skinned and then show up the next day the color of Mariah Carey.
Something is wrong here, mentally not physically.
Your body, your liver, your self-hate and self-deprivation!
Suicide, leaves many unanswered questions!
Why did the person give up?
What could I have done?
Will that person go to Heaven or Hell?
Who pushed them to the edge?
Environmental Factors That Increase Suicide Risk
“Some people who have one or more of the major risk factors above can become suicidal in the face of factors in their environment, such as:
A highly stressful life event such as losing someone close, financial loss, or trouble with the law
Prolonged stress due to adversities such as unemployment, serious relationship conflict, harassment or bullying
Exposure to another person’s suicide, or to graphic or sensationalized accounts of suicide (contagion)
Access to lethal methods of suicide during a time of increased risk
Again, though, it is important to remember that these factors do not usually increase suicide risk for people who are not already vulnerable because of a preexisting mental disorder or other major risk factors. Exposure to extreme or prolonged environmental stress, however, can lead to depression, anxiety, and other disorders that in turn, can increase risk for suicide.”
