Dear TruthBeTold Part 6
“I’ve been reading your posts for a good while now and have a question. You keep on talking about how we need to build things and start companies but every time we do something, whites take it away. They hold all key positions in banks so we can’t get loans and own all the top realty companies so we can’t get mortgages.
Once they know you have anything, you’re targeted.
How can we build, like you say, when it’s all going to be taken from us?”

First, we have to realize something.
Whites are going to do EVERYTHING in their power to keep us in an inferior position.
THAT’S THEIR JOB.
That’s the reason why they were placed here on this realm and they will never, ever change.
Second, your points are valid.
But let me point out one thing.
Whites, Arabs, Asians and all other groups, including those that have just entered this country, do one thing that blacks REFUSE to do.
WORK AS A COLLECTIVE.
We wish to attach ourselves to everyone else but those that look like us. Yes, I’m aware that slavery obliterated our self love. Yes, I’m quite aware that it stills continues today. But how long must we finger point to someone else except the man or woman in the mirror?
Last year, our collective income, in America alone, totaled over 2 TRILLION dollars. How much of that was spent on each other? How much of that “buying power” was spent, collectively, buying communal land and opening up farmer’s markets like the Hispanics are doing?
How much of that “buying power” was spent, collectively, on helping each other to grow and build businesses like the Pakistanis, Mexicans and Polish are doing?
How much of that “buying power” was spent, collectively, on helping each other to build our own hospitals like the Joos are doing?
We love to moan about “those other folks are doing this and doing that” but we are too lazy and too complacent and too apathetic to fully commit ourselves to doing the same. Regarding bank loans, CASH TALKS. Up here, the Puerto Ricans bought, as a tiny group, about 25 of them, a small piece of dirt land. They intend to turn it into a mini Spanish market filled with homemade foods from their country.
My next door neighbour just bought a house with relatively good bones in poor cosmetic condition. IN CASH. Where did the money come from? His mom, sister, brother, cousins, etc. Day and night they toil to clean up the flimsy roof and trash littered in the yard. You can bet when they are done, it’ll be beautiful and they’ll have a good high-priced rental property.
Why do blacks fail?
Because we’re too scared to succeed. And too damn happy with our slavery.
Life outside the plantation is much scarier, for SOME OF US, than getting beaten, raped and killed while on the plantation.
We have the power to make serious changes, if we choose to.
But first, we do need to acknowledge that we are very much to blame for our own suffering.
I’d advise you to read this:
Hopefully, I’ve answered your question.
By the way, another reason why we fail is because black people talk too damn much. We love to tell other people what we’re planning to do…not realizing you may be talking to the enemy. Keep our mouths shut and we’ll be better off.
