    21 Things African Americans Need To Do According To Tavis Smiley

    You may have come across this advice gem from Tavis Smiley before, but it is definitely worth repeating. Especially for those of us who are still sticking on our New Year's resolutions.


    1. Register to vote, or shut up!

    2. Take all that money out of those stocking caps, in
    cans, mattresses, and floorboards and invest money in
    something. For starters, invest in the food
    you eat and clothes you wear.

    3. Learn another language; Ebonics does not count.

    4. Stop using the "N" word,
    especially since Merriam-Webster has
    announced it isn't changing the definition.

    5. Buy something each week from a black vendor.

    6. Stop blaming white folk for 98% of your problems,
    while giving them 100% of your money.

    7. Subscribe to Ebony, JET, Black Enterprise, Essence.
    Then subscribe to one of the three weeklies:
    Time, Newsweek, or US News and World Report.
    After we read about what's going on in our world,
    how about knowing what's going on in theirs?
    It is, after all, your world.

    8. Stop walking past each other and not speaking.

    9. Be on time for something ... anything!

    10. Get an annual check up

    11. In all thy ways acknowledge Him (GOD) and He shall
    direct thy path.

    12. Stop being jealous of one another, learn to look
    past the material things and see the person for who they are.

    13. Get involved in at least one charitable or
    voluntary community service

    14. Say a prayer for someone besides yourself.

    15. Hug your child/spouse/parent today.

    16. LOVE ONE ANOTHER!

    17. Learn to Let Go and Let God.

    18. Stop talking about it, and be about it.

    19. Let GOD order your steps instead of the world.

    20. P.U.S.H.!! Pray Until Something Happens!

    21. In all that you do, get understanding,
    (turn off the TV, and open a book).


    *Don't just read this, DO IT and encourage others. Take nothing for granted..... Tell people what they mean to you - TODAY!!!!!!
