We live in a reciprocal world, when one takes or fails to take actions, there are consequences. Black people seem to think that they can fail to do certain things, maintain certain mindsets and stand for themselves solely and there is no cycle of returns. This is a serious issue especially seeing that Western society is becoming openly hostile and xenophobic again. People who hadn’t planned and prepared for stormy weather are now scarred they might get caught in the rain.
The problems we see today is the result of a lack of foundations been laid out. Having white people and other non-blacks holding the keys to black youths education, employment, media and political representation was always going to a be a recipe for disaster.
I’m am going to be brutally honest when I put it here. The world is reciprocal. All these old black people who have failed to create a durable, stable community will meet their destruction whether in life or having their legacy tarnished in death. Everybody knows the saying ‘you reap what you sow’ so why is it the older generations are shaking in their boots at the sight of Brexit, Trump and the like? Do they not see that the world is reciprocal, one must also realise this white man that these blacks idolise, follow religiously and deem as the ‘standard’ are going to receive a terrible backlash as their numbers and influence wanes. A major problem also arises for young black people, our elders have failed, how can we repair this? Do we want to be caught up in the fate they shall receive? The older generations by and large are not even trying to recognise what hasn’t been done, they want to be faultless for what has occurred. We cannot continue to follow this pattern or else will we go down with the ship, we are going to have to deal with the mess left behind by our predecessors. The time for consequences is now, the easy access to housing, easy access to training for blue-collar work, government jobs and other factors that have helped older generations are going into permanent hibernation for the youth. We have to deal with the reciprocal nature of the world.
The fear, the mistakes, the hopelessness of the older generations must be booted to the curb. The white support structure that funded the prolonged weakened state of black families is drawing to a close. The reciprocal world around us is doing as it has always done. It’s time for us to plant new seed so they can sprout into a rainforest and not a bunch of dried up weeds. The focus on morality, ideology and mentality must be accompanied by a drive to gain the tangibles which can easily transform those aspects for the masses. The foundations, the physical ones, must be met and can no longer continuously be ignored.
