"Get into the Know"
It seems to me that America is a very individualistic society and we as African Americans have subscribe to this wholeheartedly so no covenant among us could never be sustainable.
We have that "I gotta get mine, you gotta get yours" type of attitude. We no longer wanna be obligated to a larger society, culture or tradition...we just want our piece of the American Dream by any means necessary.
Where do we turn back or fall back on since we refuse to built "real correlations" with each other!??
Materialism is not related with the colour of the skin and individualism is a positive word to me which express that we are unique and everyone try to express this on His own way. Selfishness is an another question which is present in our modern societies.
....The souls are not blacks or/and whites, appearance is just an outer thing. Nothing to do with the ppl with "I the gotta get mine attitude". They will suffer a lot.
Hi Olga ... What I meant by individualism is when people only think of themselves and don't consider others by their actions... maybe the word selfishness is a better fit.; and your right... these action are not just a problem of people of color in America but unfortunately, it affects us more than any other group in America and probably the world. It's no fun to put this out but it must be said!!!
