It’s not like Trump or the powers that be have been shy about their agenda. The latest? Trump wants to replace foodstamps with boxes of food… to cut energy assistance to the poor. <br><br>Our response wasn’t to jump in front of this, to invest $200 million in feeding our own or buying dilapidated buildings in the hood for pennies on the dollar and transforming them into solar power renovated homes for poor people.<br><br>The same people who chose to be entertained will be the same people crying when foodstamps and energy assistance get cut. The same folks looking to the very government that put them in the trap to help them out. <br><br>Oh, and Disney ain’t coming to save nobody.

Our response wasn't to jump in front of this, to invest $200 million in feeding our own or buying dilapidated buildings in the hood for pennies on the dollar and transforming them into solar power renovated homes for poor people.

The same people who chose to be entertained will be the same people crying when foodstamps and energy assistance get cut. The same folks looking to the very government that put them in the trap to help them out.

Oh, and Disney ain't coming to save nobody.

Notice how few people who saw the movie are having this discussion? They didn’t wake up feeling empowered, ready to tackle our issues or even speak on the point Adofo makes, “Just came from watching Black Panther. If all we can hope to be is Black and beautiful while maintaining the status quo, we are going to die Black and beautiful. Before we die, we are going to continue to suffer from hunger, impoverishment and degradation. I don’t care if you don’t like me for saying it. I don’t care if you think I’m a Hotep nigga, whatever that is. History has shown us attempting to live vicariously through Black faces in high places will bring the masses of poor and oppressed Black people nothing but hunger, exploitation and ultimately death. If you can prove with any concrete evidence I am lying, I challenge you to do so.” – Adofo Minka

$200 million… One weekend. Proof of black spending power, you know, the power ‘black folks ain’t got no money’ brigade likes to pretend doesn’t exist… folks who want you dependent on government, who want to keep you voting for the lessor of evils and on some political party plantation. None of which has EVER worked… yet we have black folk who keep pushing this approach… at the expense of all others.
