Mother, mothers you’re still crying and Brother, brother, brothers you’re still dying. I guess we couldn’t find a way to bring the love here today because here we are almost 45 years from the release of What’s Going On, and nothing has changed. Blacks are still economically dependent on the white man, and when one of them stands up to those in power he or she are deemed antagonistic or a radical for not going along with the status quo.
Some will disagree and say we’ve made many strides in this countdry, and race relations have gotten better but that’s usually stated by a white in control or a black who has an illusion of power. I know some will say America has come a long way–we have a Black President for Christ sake. What good is a Black President when the race that he comes from is still living below the poverty rate, poor and disenfranchised? I’m not one to put all the blame on the white man; at the same time he contribution to the demise of black America is significant. This should be remembered when the white establishment is admonishing them for their lack of knowledge.
Father, fathers you didn’t properly educate because you didn’t teach the children to gain power through economics. Blacks got off the path of becoming economically independent so that they could be accepted by white folks. By doing that blacks are still at the bottom economically, academically, and socially. I’m not saying that blacks should segregate, but black need to start spending their dollars in their community at least 3x before sending it out of the community. Their so-called Black leaders and churches have failed the black community. With all the money blacks have donated to churches and their undying support for the Democratic Party they’re still at the bottom of the economic food chain. What’s Going On?
Picket lines and picket signs have not changed the conditions of blacks in America. Their condition will change when they know their self-worth and stop being consumers. Then the white establishment will talk to them and began to understand their economic situation.
What’s Going On?
