I suspect that our observations are not in absolute terms, nevertheless; without technical definitions we know of whom we speak and the perception that they are the world's carpet, far from it. In addressing this perception, it is important to note that there is an alarming void in genuine black leadership and as a result every black despot is vying to demonstrate how intellectually gifted and talanted he is.
There are so many brilliant blacks who emerged while still enslaved in North America and in the most deplorable conditions, that it amazes me as to how present day blacks have become so true to their masters. Perhaps it is because they have been told that they are free. Freedom for blacks is a relative term, and therein lies the problem.
How can this problem be addressed? Well, blacks must cease being consumers and must define what freedom and democracy actually means to them as a distinct entity. From these conclusions blacks can then define the role that must be played for them to voluntarily abandon the yoke of self imposed repression.
