Frederick Douglass said he prayed for 20 years and when nothing changed he starting praying with his legs. He started acting on what he wanted to change instead of just praying about it.
Black people can commit to coming together every week for worship but we can’t commit to coming together to plan, organize , and mobilize to better our communities? All that prayer and yet Black people have the worst problems. Prayer isn’t enough. When will we get it?
Many of the problems we face today are ROOTED from oppression. You have systems constantly at work to exploit and destroy black folks globally and we think that all we have to do is pray about it. This type of thinking is part of the reason for lack of advancement for people of the African Diaspora. Before you get upset, unfollow, or attempt to justify why yo ass in church every sunday think about what I am saying with a clear head. Can YOU dedicate one day a week to help fix your community like you do church or the Mosque? Priorities…
Peace!

Indeed, black people can go to church once a week and meet up for service to praise God, but won’t come together to organize programs or even discuss how to improve their community. We must be active in our community to fully be uplifted.

Race is a made up concept the isn’t scientifically proven and Yes there is only one race the “human race” however in REALITY race is significant, relevant, and it is a factor in everything. 
Race is a made up concept that isn’t scientifically proven and Yes there is only one race the “human race” however in REALITY race is significant, relevant, and it is a factor in everything. The whole world looks as Black people as second class humans. No one respects blacks as a whole whether you realize it or not. The main reason Is because our homeland Africa was Invaded and our civilizations destroyed. Now we live without control of our own resources, we have no power, and we are not unified. We have NO global POWER and because of the successful programming of self -hate and miseducation we don’t even respect ourselves. There is no repercussions for killing or destroying black folks. Outsiders have nothing to fear. Do you think the United Nations gives a fuck what African nations think? You think America cares what Black Americans feel? We can’t even get blatant murderers of black children in prison. You a humanitarian? A dog’s life is more valuable in America than a Black Man. You fighting for the betterment of humanity? Do you see “humanity” coming to the aid of black folks?I say how the hell are you black trying to be a humanitarian fighting for everyone else’s issues and no one cares about blacks. Black Man and Woman you are your only friend. We gotta get our own shit together before we venture out trying to save the world. You save your own home first. Nobody can get black folks out of the situation we are in global but Black people. Striving for the betterment of humanity sounds real good. It just some shit that sounds good makes you seem like you are “above” the bullshit. I”m unapologetically afrikan until our situation changes.

Oya is the Yoruba warrior-goddess of fire, wind, magic, fertility, and other chaotic, electrifying phenomena. She’s also the goddess of the Niger river, and she wears a lot of red!
She is not a goddess in quite the same sense as a Greco-Roman deity, but is an “orisha,” an elemental spirit.
