    Read this.


    The sad thing about this article is that the essence of it is true. The
    truth hurts. I just hope this sets more Black people in motion towards
    making real progress. Chris Rock, a Black comedian, even joked that
    Blacks don't read.

    Help prove them wrong! Read and pass on.

    Please Note:

    For those of you who heard it, this is the article Dee Lee was reading
    this morning on a New York radio station. For those of you who didn't
    hear it, this is very deep. This is a heavy piece and a Caucasian
    wrote it.

    THEY ARE STILL OUR SLAVES We can continue to reap profits from the
    Blacks without the effort of physical slavery Look at the current
    methods of containment that they use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED,

    Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once
    said, "The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it
    in a book." We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the
    opportunity to read any book on any subject through the efforts of
    their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are numerous
    books readily available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, and,
    not to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid
    blueprints to reach economic equality (which should have been their
    fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all.

    GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the
    abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their
    disposal. Last year they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas,
    out of their 450 billion dollars in total yearly income (2.22%).

    Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture
    we care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it.
    Being primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed.
    They continually want more, with little thought for saving or

    They would rather buy some new sneaker than invest in starting
    business. Some even neglect their children to have the latest Tommy or
    FUBU, And they still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house
    gives them "Status" or that they have achieved their Dream.

    They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty
    because their greed holds them back from collectively making better

    With the help of BET, and the rest of their black media
    that often
    broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue
    to see huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike. (Tommy Hilfiger has
    even jeered them, saying he doesn't want their money, and look at how
    the fools spend more with him than ever before!). They'll continue to
    show off to each other while we build solid communities with the
    profits from our businesses that we market to them.

    SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the
    major ways we can continue to contain them. One of their own, Dubois
    said that there was an innate division in their culture. A "Talented
    Tenth" he called it. He was correct in his deduction that there are
    segments of their culture that has achieved some "form" of success.

    However, that segment missed the fullness of his work. They didn't
    read that the "Talented Tenth" was then responsible to aid The
    Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life. Instead, that
    segment has created another class, a Buppie class that looks down on
    their people or aids them in a condescending manner.

    They will never achieve what we have. Their selfishness does not allow
    them to be able to work together on any project or endeavor of
    substance. When they do get together, their selfishness lets their
    egos get in the way of their goal Their so-called help organizations
    seem to only want to promote their name without making any real change
    in their community.

    They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels,
    and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best
    speakers, not to the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness?
    They steadfastly refuse to see that TOGETHER EACH ACHIEVES MORE (TEAM)

    They do not understand that they are no better than each other because
    of what they own, as a matter of fact, most of those Buppies are but
    one or two pay checks away from poverty. All of which is under the
    control of our pens in our offices and our rooms.

    Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to re ad,
    continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are
    "helping" their
    communities by paying dues to organizations which do little other than
    hold lavish conventions in our hotels. By the way, don't worry about
    any of them reading this letter, remember, 'THEY DON'T READ!!!!
