Report From the "City Stole Black Owned Land and Erected a Monument" Files in Culture, Race & Economy Posted October 9 ProfD But you know Winter for America can actually turn out to be SPRING for Black America .....if we play our cards right. Like Napoleon Hill said, every misfortune carries within it the seed for a FORTUNE....if you know where to look! As AfroAmericans we've had so many opportunities since a year ago to flip things around and build our own little economies. For example..... When the schools closed, many AfroAmericans discovered that they could do a better job educating their OWN children than the public schools. But that desire to stay on the Caucasian's porch...up under his awning where it's nice and shady...kept most of our people from moving. This Global Pandemic could actually be an opportunity INTELLIGENT AfroAmericans have been looking for to structure and build our own independent miniature communities inside the larger national one LIKE the Black Wallstreets and Bruce-Streets of the past. Companies make maximum profits by shipping jobs overseas.And you know the REAL reason most of these jobs were shipped overseas..........was to keep them out of the reach of AfroAmericans. Before the 1980s, the U.S. was the manufacturing capital of the world. Especially in places like Detroit. But so many Black folks were working factory jobs and joining unions, making good money and buying homes and property....without a degree...White men got jealous and decided they had to "do something" about that. White dudes got tired of every time they look up, here's a nicca with a bigger house and nicer car than HIS grinning at him with a gold tooth in his mouth. "Heeeey there big time......" .....so they started sending the manufacturing jobs over seas. And when more Black folks started getting degrees and entering the corporate world...they started sending THOSE jobs overseas too Unless I'm in a hurry, I still look for a human being to ring up my purchases. But, I see the handwriting on the wall. The cashier's days are numbered. Lol...not with THIS virus still raging. Unless the cashier is a fine sister that I have a strong desire to flirt with...I'm taking my ass over to the self-check out lane to avoid them putting their sweaty hands on my pears and hot sauce bottles. Some of them women got all kinds of boogers and dandruff and flakes and shit stuck in them long nails from digging in their nose and scratching their itchy scalp...and now they want to grin at me while they're groping my groceries...lol. Yeah, in most of the stores this way they are trying to phase out the cashiers. But they're having a hard time doing it because the automated machines keep fucking up....lol. They have a row of automatic self-check out machines and every time you turn around one of those lights on them keep going off to request assistance. They have almost as many attendants to help with the self-check out machines...as they have machines themselves...lol. That acutaly defeats the purpose. -You buy alcohol and they need to check your age....need to call an attendant to check your ID -An item is on sale but the machine didn't register it...need to call an attendant to verify it's on sale -A woman stands too close to the machine and her titties get checked out....need to call an attendant to get her titties taken off the item list (or she won't be able to walk out of the store with them...lol). Those attendants STAY busy because humans are so in need and unpredictable that as much as they try, machines just can't take the place of a human. Banks keep trying to do it too....but end up going back to the friendly bank teller.
