To continue to be led down this path knowing what we know today… after everything we experienced the past 4 years… is to contribute to our own demise.

I feel deja vu… Democrats, black leaders and movement leaders are doubling/tripling down, putting the pedal to the metal, flooring it, highspeed, travelling faster than the speed of light down the path that got us where we are. They’re not listening to those they claim to represent. They’re not heeding the warning signs. They’re still playing 2008 politics… once again no plan, simply banking on antiTrump / anti-police sentiment, identity politics and intersectionality to win… a strategy applied in 2016 presidential election that resulted in the worst upset in US political history…. and not one single officer serving a minute in prison for killing an unarmed black person.
I don’t feel powerless. I know a lot of you do, but I don’t… because I know what’s possible. I look at the trillions we make for those outside our community based on our raw talent and natural ability. By talking to a beat, we created a multitrillion dollar artform that is emulated around the world. Black athletes raised on some of the harshest streets in Amerikkka make trillions for sports leagues, team owners and the gambling industry. Look at what we just made Disney. Every day brothas and sistas make something from nothing, a dollar out of 15 cents and look fly in the process… I don’t feel powerless. I see untapped power and a revenue stream in the trillions. We don’t have to play their game. We can create our own.
