1 thing black people need to work on in 2012 – ASAP

Share Button

Through out the century, every 30-40 years there is an outcry from people about “needing jobs”.

When will that question ever change to, “how can we create jobs?” by “minorities”?

Obama has served his 4 years – 16% of “black” Americans are unemployed. Those that are employed make 20% less than their white counterparts, even at the same job. Has much changed?

The question for black people is: What date, time and place can we all meet to combine our skills, talents, resources and ideas together?  Why can’t we create jobs for ourselves and for other Americans?

We built the great cities of America, brick by brick, but now we act helpless. We want unemployment checks, we pour our money into large corporations not owned by just people, we devour food stamps.

We built Wall St., but we can’t build a smarter banking system. We built America but we do not want to protect our mother country – Africa – from her devastation.  We want to stay safe in our bubbles here in America, and turn the cheek to our families in Africa & Haiti.  We sign up to become assassins in the US Armed forces, risking our lives for a people who don’t even care about us, and watch our fellow soldiers rape and kill our own blood.

There is no such thing as the Middle East. Look at a map. A real one. It is in Northeastern Africa. Using the name “Middle East” – is just another way to differentiate and impose separation. We are all a part of each other.

Who are you? What talents do you have? What skills have you mastered?

If we can not stand for what is right and be willing to act for the future of our country and the next generation; what will the future be like?

Did you just go to college, graduate, get a comfortable but shitty job simply to get out of the hood and move out of your parents basement? Is what yours is yours?

We can actually lead a life changing life for the good of everyone.  Let me know the date & time, I’ll be there when y’all are ready.

    When we work on ourselves, we can in turn help others! There won’t be a magic wand spread across the country giving people jobs– and the thing is, who wants a Just Over Broke anyhow? People yearn for “job security,” but how secure are you when someone else is in control of your paycheck? Even millionaire basketball players were held in limbo for three months because they are owned.

    Self-creation of multiple streams of abundance is the freest way to be. As for me, I’m finally dropping the sandbags that hang from my shoulder…got rid of all of the chains; now there’s just one more to go.

    @mizChartreuse it’s funny you mention professional basketball players – that is such a perfect example of another form of a “owner-dependent” relationship. There is no magic wand for eliminating broke lifestyles, agreed. It takes work, plus the knowledge of trying new avenues. Like you said, MULTIPLE income streams is the best road for abundance. I believe more and more people are beginning to really seek that out in their lives now, but still so many of us are struggling.

    You have one more chain to drop? What’s stopping you? You are strong in all you do, with the power of the creator in you. Speak it and don’t doubt! You will succeed. I’m with you too, in essence. I try to choose action over hope, but it is still a challenge.

    I echo you completely.

    This is my last chain: I’ve worked at the United Center stadium in Chicago, home to the Bulls basketball and Blackhawks hockey teams, for about six years. I started as a hostess at a private club and moved on to working at the bar after a year and a half. It’s been a great run, but with me becoming more awake and more entrepreneurial-independent, the rules and bureaucracy at the stadium make it hard to breathe! I literally had to talk myself into going into work yesterday, when my mind was SCREAMING at me “Walk out. Just turn around and walk out right now.”

    The only thing keeping me there is the fact that I love my coworkers, the money is good, and my partner and I have created a fantastic subculture and family dynamic at our club since we deal with so much of the system there. The season goes from September and ends in May (then there are playoffs), so I’m considering this my farewell season. Part of me wants to just stop going in now, but since I am working there by choice and not necessity, I am planning to finish out this season and be done with it, and save up as much cash as possible from that place.

    I’m going to Trinidad on February 1st for about a month, though…so I wouldn’t be surprised if I just decided to never return. 🙂 And if that happens, so be it! But if I do come back to the states and find it intolerable to put on that dreamed button-up shirt, I won’t be mad at myself for leaving that era behind. Time for new beginnings!

    @mizChartreuse I and many others can relate to this experience! Dreading & dragging through the doors of work hum-drum, beginning another day of the same thing… but Trinidad! If you decided to never return that would definitely be understandable! I was just talking to a friend the other day about how buying some land, no matter where, and just living off of it would be a 1000% dream come true. Go for it girl, enjoy yourself, let life’s opportunities charm your time here on Earth 🙂
