AS I FOLDED UP MY SPEECH, EMBRACED THE PEOPLE I MET ON THIS ROAD, AND HEADED BACK TO POVERTY AND THEY AFFLUENCE. I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS…..
WE MUST ACKNOWLEDGE THE CRIMINALIZATION OF POVERTY THAT IS LEGISLATED
WE MUST ERADICATE EDUCATION MALPRACTICE
WE MUST CALL OUT THOSE WHO BRING GUNS AND DRUGS INTO OUR POOR BLACK COMMUNITIES
WE MUST CALL OUT THOSE WHO LEGISLATE ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS
WE MUST STOP WITH THE RESEARCH, STATISTICAL DATA AND HEAR FROM THE POOR THEMSELVES
WE MUST SEE THAT WHITES WHO HAVE NO RELATIONSHIP, WHO REFUSE TO BUILD BONDS, WHO ARE AFRAID, WHO MISS DAYS MAJORLY IN OUR INNER CITY SCHOOLS BECAUSE MUST STOP
WE MUST ADDRESS THESE WHITE TEACHERS WHO ARE IN PLACE TO CRIMINALIZE THE VERY POVERTY THAT IS LEGISLATED
WE MUST LOOK AT THE EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION FOR WHAT IT IS
WE MUST LOOK AT THE SYSTEM THAT ASSURE WHITES CAN HAVE AN EASY LIFE AND WE ARE PUSHED DEEPER INTO POVERTY WHILE BEING “highly educated.”
WE MUST ADDRESS THE CREDIT SYSTEM IN PLACE THAT IS INTERTWINED WITH SO MANY OTHER THINGS THAT ASSURE US OF A HORRIBLE LIFE
WE MUST UNEARTH, TEACH AND SPEAK THE TRUTH OF AMERICA SO WE CAN LIVE FREE AND HARMONIOUSLY
YES WE MUST!
WE CAN, WE DID, WE MUST!
