"There is a crisis of unprecedented magnitude in the black community. All of us notice it, some of us talk about it, and very few is willing to do anything about it.” This crisis is becoming so widespread that movements such as “Occupy Wall Street” are taking place all around the world by various race groups. But, the question is… why are so many of us not rolling-up our sleeves and getting involved? As African Americans, we are the group that is most disproportionate in education–– which is being taken over by private companies, prison-industrial complexes, low-income, no healthcare or low-quality care, highest unemployment, and small retirement accounts; if any. Why are we conditioned to keep our heads down? Why are we so conditioned to feel that we are more powerful as an individual than as a collective? Why do we feel that if something does not directly affect me… it’s not my problem? We are hurting… so why aren’t we fighting for one another? SayWord Family, please tune in on Wednesday at 8pm. We will not only discuss the issues, we'll also discuss ways we can get involved to change them.
