Back at you,
You hid the nail on the head. I know this discussion is away from DNA, but it is all in the same. Finally, someone that see the development of Black Americans in the same way. If we don't watch it, just as we were imported for free labor, we can be exported because we don't provide any value. This is the American way and we had better understand it, and quick.
You raised a number of questions, and I believe we have to start by not continuing to act as slaves. In other words, we have got to stop depending or blaming our "Master" or "Government" for everything to happen to us. We have been free for over 150 years, and we continue to act and beg for everything. It is our problem, and believe it or not, nobody else is going to solve it for us. Others have their own problems, and have no interest or desire in solving ours.
Then, where do we start. It starts with understanding this country and its Constitution. This country was built on Money, Power, and Influence. Even slavery was a business deal. So first we need to do these things by first conserve money and buy value and not consumer goods. Then we need to encourage our children to enters into fields of science and technology, and not professional sports or social programs for the quick buck or the easy way out. We need to build a technology base within our people so we will learn how to solve problems and not become the problem. It is from such a base we will be able to build companies and add value to the "High Technology" American society.
