Children out of wed lock during hs and during college is the number one reason a lot of our women are uneducated and have to work two three so so jobs to get by. Men in jail is the number one reason men during hs and during college won't ever be able to provide. We as a ppl have set up a culture in which failure is the norm and acceptable. Why is it when a black kid goes to college it's a big feat but when any other kid goes it's the norm? Our level of education is lower, our perception of ourselves is lower and our spiritual, social, mental, and physical degrading of ourselves is at an all time high. We have to go back to the time when being educated meant amunition against ignorance and in a time where there was a lack of social power, our education gave us defense. What is our defense now? How are we distinguishing ourselves as a literate and progressive race? We are not. Barack Obama is one man that shows a glimspe of what we can do as a people.......what about the rest of us?
