Last year, word out on Jack Ma, owner of ALIBABA…
He’s also the one who said people need to spend money on their OWN people.
Meritorious manumission (something used by whites to give Black people rewards and incentives for taking down other Black people) says we are too quick to turn one another in and to turn on one another and to go elsewhere to invest and buy, so the poverty gaps that are there between Black and white in America will remain forever. We will ALWAYS be behind the rest of the world, as a race. We shoot each other and we toss white people’s drugs, liquor, and destructive self-hating rap music between one another and our children and women, et al, for the ultimate internalized take-down. They take care of themselves and we take care of them, too.
We –as a race of people who do not yet know we are a People– also tend to not understand or overstand that though other races argue and fuss and throw chairs at one another and tend to disagree on much, they also pretty much keep their drama to themselves and stand together as one UNITED on the world front.
Ma Quote: “If we don’t align together, human beings are going to fight each other, because each technology revolution makes the world unbalanced. We are very lucky because the world is in a big transformation because of technology. This new technology will create a lot of successful people, interesting careers but honestly, every new technology will create social problems.”
If we don’t align together, human beings are going to fight each other, because each technology revolution makes the world unbalanced. We know Ma wasn’t talking about Black or Afrocentric (African-American) peoples when he said that. He already knows we’re a lost cause to the world AS A RACE, especially when it comes to technology and BALANCE and RE-balance.
How “right” was Kanye West for taking his family’s name to grovel and beg at the feet of Donald Trump and talk about high-tech aeroplanes that he didn’t invent? How deep and abiding is it that Trump can now buy these types of supersonic technologies with taxpayer money and simultaneously allow his own employees to go without work or pay?
We laugh, sure, but the two of them are walking around with A LOT of our money in their pockets in both the private and government sectors, and we’re still out here looking for one of those 7.1 million “jobs” Trump said he created in the real world while also unemploying thousands of federal government employees (mostly Black people, we know) all by himself.
Since we now know that our economics will stay on the perpetual downturn as a race due to our own actions or inactions in our communities;
_and we have also learned how individualism may get one broken piece of the puzzle somewhere in life, but we cannot –as a whole– ever rely on individualization to close the racial wealth gaps-the world simply doesn’t work that way (i.e., Ayn Rand was totally wrong);
_and we have also learned that the Black or African-American race is too dependent on other nations and world markets to get consumable products “for showcase purposes” rather than for long-term progress…
Here are several thought-provoking ideas about how to carry on as a family unit in spite of all else…
