    Agreed. It's like people don't even want to do the minimal amount of effort.

    I'm not even saying do that because blasting random white folks will get you nowhere. Revolution involves use of military and guerrilla tactics to produce specific results.

    I was agreeing with you, I worded it wrong.

    Anyway revolution doesn't have to necessarily involve military tactics. Even something as simple as buying from only black owned businesses would help.

    Yeah you are right because it is not needed and uncalled for.

    A revolution is a fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time. The word revolution comes from the Latin revolutio, "a turn around"

    What is needed is evolution.

    Disagree, a top down change is needed. A redistribution of wealth and power is needed. The system has been evolving to more effectively control and manipulate people. What do you think the report of 30k drones in US skies is?

    That is a start, but eventually when you realize that certain powers that be find Black self sufficiency a threat to the order then you'll come to understand that military interaction is inevitable.

    And then what? When you get rid of the system and replace it with another one. It will eventually get corrupted, too. Is it better when black people are running a corrupted system? Man is corrupted. anything man does will never be perfect.

    So what needs to happen is black people need to learn how to play within the system and manipulate it when needed. Prosperity depends only on how much you are willing to give for it.

    I don't know who disagreed with me but people underestimate the value of economics. When Obama came out and urged Americans to buy American China interpreted this as an act of war. Economics is why the hood is a warzone. According to some estimates African Americans collectively have a spending power of 1 trillion dollars. That's like the GDP of a 1st world country. So why are we at the bottom of the totem pole economically? Because all of our capital is being siphoned out of our communities. Koreans own 95% of the billion dollar black hair care industry. And if you look at most major black areas you'll notice that blacks are not the owners of the businesses they frequent. We don't produce anything, we just consume.

    We don't even have the money to fund a military advanced enough to be a threat to anyone.

    At this point in the game, its not about black revolution.... its about human revolution all across the board, in every city, state, and country. There isnt any race not under threat, even the white race. Its time for the underprivileged majority to take this 🤬 back from the super privileged minority, and become truly free. This is where we are today in 2012.

    You can't have a revolution without liberating the permanent underclass, and in every society in America, Europe and Africa, that is the black population.

    Not just the black population, though. Are you ready for non-black people to be apart of your revolution?

    Oh yes a strong military is integral but we need to have our house in order first. Our biggest problem is mental. Black peoples allegiance is not 100% with their people. That's a huge problem. If you observe a lot of the black movements in America it was often another black person who sabotaged it. Malcolm X was killed by black muslims. Marcus Garvey's group was infiltrated by Agent 800 so on and so forth.

    Whatever I'm not trying to preach though...

    The question are non Black people ready to include Black people. I've hung out with a lot of revolutionary types including, Socialists, and commies, and general anarchists, and most of these groups focus on a world wide revolution while simultaneously minimizing the very real horror imposed upon dark skinned people. Africa has been the most 🤬 continent on this planet, and the savaging of it's resources and people have been the lynch pin in this capitalistic monster.

    The perpetuation of a permanent black underclass in america through legislation and by proxy economic and social isolation have fed the prison industrial complex and the military industrial complex.

    Already copped them ether. It's why I agree with Malcolm when he says that the only true Black revolution has to be Black led. The driving force of any revolution should be self determination. A people have a right to determine their government and how they will interact with the world, whether it be global community or isolation or something in between.

    True, but a smart man considers that every alliance may be temporary, a matter of convenience over shared goals.

    @BlackThor356

    I think the entertainment industry, the music industry specifically has a bunch of cowardly ass 🤬 running around fronting like they're real G's when they really betty crockett cupcake soft. Back in the day at least we had Ice-T coming out with Cop Killa NWA 🤬 the Police, Dre and Snoop Deep Cover. Now we aint got none of that, we only got gangstas that get brolic with other weak ass dudes and consequently when 🤬 gets real, like 10 police beatin down one dude in broad daylight, you got dudes that will stand around and film the 🤬 and talk some side ways 🤬 , but they not gonna do anythng.

    🤬 are Shook when it comes to the real. Real G's aint, but we havent had many Real G's around lately.

    Have you looked at the 90s babies and the 00 babies? Real G's of the new generation are almost non-existent.
