Let's Talk Race America
Leadership, how can you speak for people
that you  do not know or understand? 
Who Do You Represent?
RACE AND HOMELAND ISSUES  

Group Discussions 

Locate news article, read for evidence of systemic racism, bias and emotions behind        actions. Consider how society tolerates harsh cruelties as well harboring quiet and latent bias against others while appearing to be inclusive. What does it take to release these feelings and what sparks action? Who are the victims and who the perpetrators? How do we explain and justify bias? Where possible read COMMENTS and discuss how honest people can be when anonymous. They can also express common sense thoughts that are widely shared but politically incorrect to speak aloud. Finally, discuss how you believe that we should address common understandings to solve social and economic stratification issues at home and worldwide.

MESSAGE TO ADOS

KNOW THAT THIS IS YOUR ONLY HOMELAND

OWN IT, PROTECT IT, RESTORE THE LEGACY AND ENTITLEMENTS INHERITED FROM OUR ANCESTORS TO THEIR RIGHTFUL RECIPIENTS

Read it for yourself
Media today is flowing with Race Relations milk and honey with a large side of thorns that allows you to read and know without commenter  interpretations
ADDI QUOTE

The Golden Rule

Simply stated RESPECT, CONSIDERATION

Do unto our nation, citizens, coworkers as you desire that they would do unto yours, respecting their boundaries, culture and entitlements that are their inheritance.

LOVE   RESPECT  DO NO HARM

In a society that dehumanizes individuals and promotes relationships that fixate on "other" criteria, it teaches this. It becomes accepted and sustained within a system, institutionalized, and all assume roles in its maintenance

ALL are affected and MARKED with the reputation of your group, treated per the Mark. 

Therefore .......

No need to single out one group, one race, one class within the system to critique. All participates are responsible for changing it.

CAUTION

Combative and "hard" teaching tactics to make one group change is ineffective. 

APPROACH with an understanding of everyone's position in the problems and solutions.

MAKE IT WORTH THE JOY OF CHANGE

"Beware of all systems that rank people. Most people want high status or positions and shun those in lower positions. They justify upward mobility even as they step on lower tier people. They take full credit for their success and blame those at the lower end without acknowledging the forces embedded within systems that significantly determine opportunities."

The Beauty and Need for Diversity

Would we want to assimilate all flowers into

one type of rose, one bird, one breed of dog?

Can you imagine life without exposure to world cultures and all that they bring?

We are enriched by diversity.

Our identity is important to maintain.

Now, how do we figure out appreciation for everybody’s right of space, homeland,

values and how to interact with each other

on a respectful basis? Not taking but sharing.

When the primary reason for immigration is

to support the Homeland that they left,

what is the obligation of the Host Homeland

for their citizen's best interests?

First .....

KNOW US

Second .....

KNOW  OUR

HISTORY

Third ...... 

STOP CONFUSING

US WITH OTHER

BLACK ETHNIC GROUPS, OUR HISTORY AND ISSUES ARE NOT ALWAYS THE SAME

Systemic Racism Where You Live

1. When the local discount store markets and earns a fortune selling Black empowerment              t-shirts, pictures and novelty decorations, yet  they award literacy grants exclusively to white run nonprofits.

2. When respect for a new group's positions prompt their installation into decision making power and you do not monitor anti-Black bias, it hurts Black communities.

3. When you appreciate the work of Black run nonprofits, yet donate funds to white run nonprofits. Further insult is to start a similar nonprofit rather than support the Black run nonprofit because you believe that you can do it better.

4. When a white run company, nonprofit or school primarily serves the Black community and does no invest in training staff to understand and appreciate ADOS by teaching Black American History or providing Race Relations training

5. When don't see race means don't see history and heritage allowing you to feel justified in replacing ADOS with substitute ethnic Blacks.
