A political promise to talk is no commitment to listen

By Alred C. Frett

Even where Blind leads Blind, Folly is no Legacy:

As the New World remains filled with Old Practices, those in Power continue to create Conditions and Laws to have the Less Fortunate destroy each other on their behalf… While some recognise this others refuse to see, so it is refreshing when South Africa’s ANC resolves to leave the International Criminal Court because they see powerful nations use it to "trample" the human rights of weaker ones.

…And the Baggage of Slavery continues to weigh us down:

There is no doubt the global effects of Slavery remain high and Systemic Discrimination and Injustice within most Societies continue to diminish Human Rights while increasing the undue imprisonment of African Descendants… Meanwhile we are trained to downplay these wrongs by telling ourselves that they will pass with time – They never do and our Children are left to carry burdens we create.

Is National Health Insurance really Social Security?

By Alred C. Frett

Practice makes perfect even to those skilled in Deceit & Destruction:

If we lose ourselves it’s impossible to lead others – However, as indoctrinated Descendants of Slaves we are conditioned to accept wrong as right and regard ourselves as Lazy & Violent when Historical Facts show Europeans as the ones who stole America from Mexicans & Indians, robbed the Resources of others, enslaved Africans, slaughtered Indians, Muslims, Blacks & Japanese.

Turning hippocratic oath into hypocrites come forth

By Alred C. Frett

But you already know that so let’s change the script and have you answer some questions that may better reveal your need for or against the struggle.

Weeping, wailing & gnashing of teeth from political pains

Hating ourselves enough to hurt ourselves:

If one didn’t know better they could easily think all the Noise Makers are innocent and justified in making a Racket about NHIS and other Complaints but these Problems are not new and no alternate solutions were offered by opposing Candidates… Thus, if this Snap Election was to create a Population of ‘Walking Dead’ who would be seen and not heard, it partially succeeded.

Can blacks progress without religion?

By Alred C. Frett

Our Ancestors possessed Intelligence but were denied Knowledge:

Some say Life is a Journey but in fact it’s more like a Road and we are Travelers on a Pilgrimage - There may be Hills and Valleys, open Fields and flooded Plains, well-paved Streets and rugged Tracks and as different as we are - for better or worse - we all end at the same Finish Line… When it’s over it’s over and what really matters is what we withdrew and what we contributed along the way.
