For All Points-Of-The-View.
Black social justice organisations like” Black Lives Matter” are doing a tremendous job in fighting against the injustice and inequality black people face all over America. They deserve to be commended for it. Recently when the two black men were unjustly arrested and humiliated at Starbucks, our black organisations rose up to defended them admirably. The Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson apologized on for the atrocious behavior of his employee. He went even further by shutting down stores nationwide to allow sensitivity training for all employees. He deserved to be commended for such a response. Black organisations should have stood up and proclaimed their appreciation loud and clear. If they did this must have been a whisper for I did not hear it.
In my book, “Leave the Rat Race to the Rats”, I contend that we need to pay more attention to reinforcing good deeds. To quote from my book:
“We must be vigilant for good deeds and must Acknowledge them. We must resist taking good deeds for granted. To resist this, we must pay attention to the triple A’s.
Be Aware of good deeds, Acknowledge them, and show Appreciation for them. In short, Triple A them.”
We must realize we are up against a formidable enemy, the notorious 1% richest that dominate America. Even worse we have to contend with a vindictive white racist president in the White House whose maliciousness exceeds all expectations. This is a crisis!
Do you know what their strategy to dominate is? It is tried and effective. It is divide and conquer. Pitting white against black is important to them. We cannot allow them to use their fake new, lies and dishonesty to tear us apart. We must build alliances. Many of these people who are abusing black people have been duped by the 1%. They are just pawns. They are victims too, but just don’t know it.
Black organisations cannot win the battle alone nor do they have to fight alone. There are lots of people of goodwill out there who have not been brainwashed. Let’s reach out to welcome them, like the CEO of Starbucks. If they waver, let’s strengthen the bonds rather than weaken them with the typical knee-jerk destructive criticism. Above all let’s concentrate on reinforcing good deeds. Let recruiting the 99% be our goal.
