"Outraged," about what, racism is well and alive to the point that it is embedded into the institution. What we should be outraged about is the many youths we are loosing to black on black violence. Who is going to carry on the legacy of our people if our youths are becoming instinct? How many black men died since the inception of 2007 due to black on black violence in Philadelphia? And how many lives does it take for us to become outraged? Please my people where ever you dwell, whatever you do, touch a life and huge it and try as hard as you can so that person can fathom beyond today which at times seems like purgatory. I know we all want a piece of the American pie, but trust me it is polluted with poison. Please, Please let us try to help each other: help comes in many forms and shape, so please don't hesitate to give someone a hand. I had a black professor once, and said to me “I got mine and that is what matters;” in other words my people, today we are so caught up in trying to gain material success we forget the legacy of our grandparents and the many lives who died for on our behalf. Think about it if Harriet Tubman did not come back to free those slaves what would have happened to them. Helping someone takes courage and patience virtues that lash with the premise of capitalism.
