What does freedom look like to you?
What are you willing to sacrifice for that ultimate freedom?
It is time to take action!
Our ancestors sacrificed their lives, endured pain and prejudice just so we didn't have to. After being ripped off their land, riches & culture, our ancestors still stuck together for the greater good. They understood that they were stronger together than divided & most powerful when united.
So what happened to Xennials, Millienials & Generation Z? Instead of building together we tend to be selfish and want it all for ourselves. What happened to each one teach one? If I empower my brother or my sister that doesn't disempower me, that makes me understand that together we can all lead.
Jewellery, cars & clothes shouldn't be the main goal, building generational wealth & sustainability needs to be more important. We have adopted a consumer mentality, so we buy, buy, buy without a plan. Don't own anything not even a piece of our motherland. I don't believe our ancestors died for us to not take up our birth rights.
We fight each other, turn our backs on each other and put down each other. How can we expect non blacks to respect us when we don't even respect & love one another.
There is a difference between a slave & being enslaved, freedom is when we release ourselves from material & mental chains. (Telixia Inico)
Think about it!
Inspire & Motivate
It is our obligation to hold each other accountable. We must love, respect & inspire each other. I have grown up with the mentality that if I eat, we all eat but that has become lost in transit. If one person has opened the door, it is only right to support someone else to also enter. It is lonely at the top because there isn't much of us there from the hood, but it can stop being lonely if we release the blueprint so the next person can come up.
Bury me in the ocean, with my ancestors that jumped from the ships, because they knew death was better than bondage. (Michael B Jordan - Black Panther)
