Now that January is almost over theres a few things us as Black men need to focus our immediate attention on. Last years controversy in the conscious community with the likes of Dr. Umar and Tariq Nasheed among other beefs, the crucifying of Bro. Polight and such I’ve learned more horrible truths about us that I wish I didnt know. Since I was 12 years old getting my start working for a local conscious newspaper I’ve stood on the front lines against police brutality, economic disenfranchisement and now the Rights of Black men. But Im quickly being reminded of the internal problems we face that consistenly keeps us from finishing and winning the race. Heres the top 3 things we as Black men need to fix in 2018.

1). Supporting things that are not right and exact:

Since slavery we as Black men have lached on to numerous beliefs, policies and social positions that are counter productive to our survival as a race. It is true that you can never rid the earth of the original man physically, but the mind, the source from which everything derives, from the 11 systems of the body to the things we create and manifest can be destroyed if we continue to allow things that are not right and exact to co exist. To sum it up with 3 I’ll say: 1, no right is above Human rights, 2, knowledge of your history is the fuel for a successful future, and 3, Loyalty to your race is 2nd next to the most high as seen in Every race on the planet except us. These 3 are right and exact and absent of bias.

2) We need to stop fighting each other:

I did a post on Black on Black violence. And while many believe the killings in the streets are the problem what about the systematic killings in education, business, and politics? I know Black men who not only want to see another Black man fail but goes out their way to do so and the fact that one may be Godly and rightous matters none. The devils grip is so strong we see ourselves as the enemy in our own house. You see with what happened to Stacy, Dash and Omorosa. No amount of wealth and trinkets is worth sacrificing your own people. The past 10 years not only have we had our coons get just as famous as the snitches in the street but the so called conscious leaders have become the very sellouts they claim the preachers to be. Only here can you find Black leaders hating the 1st Black president the same way racist powerful whites do and then airing out differences on social media. I was here in Baltimore for the riots. The media was claiming gangs were planning to kill cops in retaliation for Freddie Greys death. What the rest of America didnt see was the Bloods, Crips, Black Police officers, Black Clergy, and activist held a “closed to the media” meeting that ultimately ended the violence and destruction of the city. All our differences need to be handled in that manner.

3). Hating our other brothers & sisters:

I had a long argument on social media in two different posts. One post this young brother was trying to convince black people not to trust anyone Half Black. He was young and void of history to know that no “African American” is 100% Black and alot of our leaders, male and female and most of us comes from a mixed background to some extent. But that doesnt define your blackness. The other post was how some “African Americans” dont consider Haitians, and other carribeans as Black. That blew my mind back cause I’ve never heard this in all my 37 years. These kids have no sense of history to know what black is.

As Black men it is our job to make whats wrong and incorrect Right and Exact for the betterment of our race. But in order to do that we must be Right and Exact within ourselves. The men are the foundation of society so there should be no mystery to our plight. Without knowledge wisdom and understanding of our culture we have no power. Every Black mans new year resolution should not be something insignificant or personal cause those are the hardest goals to reach. Our resolution should be the simplest of them all. We need to be who we are and what we are since we were born, a Blackman. Every other “Man” is doing just that, look at how far they’re going!
