The Biggest Problem Facing The Black Community!

About a year ago, a fellow activist, brotherpeacemaker, said that the biggest problem facing the black community is our inability to come together at times of adversity...

I must say I agree. Although brotherpeacemaker made this bold revelation in 2007, the problem of diviseveness is still with us today...the victories of Jena Six and Barack Obama aside.

So, tell me black folk, how do we go about coming together as a people?

Personally, I think that most of our problems in the Black community come from within. We need to improve our self-love so that we will stop tearing down one another.

This is my first time visiting your blog. I like the flow. I look forward to seeing how your blog evolves over time...

peace, Villager

Hello Villager - welcome to the African American Pragmatist. Thanks for your comment and insights. I agree we need to stop tearing each other down--but how do we stop? Tell me, what sort of other things do we do as a community that hurt us?
