    in Politics Progressive

    Tonight in in Kala Nation's Sunday Night Sermon we will talk about intelligence and why are we against those who are smart.Why do we reject academics for street knowledge?When a White boy is born it is inbred in him the responsiblity of running the world.When a Black boy is born the world has no use for him.Why are the top money makers in Black America sports stars and entertainers?Why are the top money makers in Nigeria industrialist?Why are there no major discussions among 42 million African Americans about the topics of universal concern?Things such as energy,science,global warming,ecology,human development and WMD's?
    The answer is 400 years of acceptance of mediocrity low expectations and basic serfdom and outright buffoonery.Why are the Chinese and Asians populating Africa and getting rich?How do we rise above our collective lot in America?Or do we throw away what God gave all human beings to succeed on this Earth,A mind,a will,and self determination for a few crumbs?Tonight the Kalagenesis delivers a fire and brimstone Sunday Night sermon in Kala Land.
