"Soul Brother" is no longer a term commonly used as far as I can tell. I was gonna call this the "Black Man's Power package" would that or some variation using "Black man" have been better?  I thought what would it sound like if some white guy created a package called the "White Man's Power Package." To me it sounds racist...

 

But some believe racism is tied to power and therefore Black people can't be racist.  That is not an idea I fully embrace, but I see where those who believe it are coming from.

 

At any rate, white people could benefit from reading these books, but I know the VAST majority never will.  Though Williams, in his heyday, enjoyed broad appeal and acclaim as does Mosley... so you never know.

 

Maybe I should have just promoted the books as six excellent books titles ... nah I'll target my Brother's.  No one pays much attention to our mental nourishment.

That comes from a Marxist perspective of the Hegelian Dialect and Historical Materialism. It’s where everything is the result of competing interest.

 

”Soul” seems to me be more commonly used when referring to food, Now the people are using the word that rhymes with Ninja to replace Soul Brother and the word that rhymes with Rich to replace Soul Sister.

 

 I am not even sure if soul was something implanted upon our community. Well until we meet again. I leave you this

I can't say I understand what that means.

 

James Brown was Soul Brother #1. It seems he may have been the last soul Brother...

@Troy Dialectic comprises three stages of development: first, the thesis, a statement of an idea; second, the antithesis, a reaction that contradicts or negates the thesis; and third, the synthesis, a statement through which the differences between the two points are resolved. Dialectical materialism, a theory or set of theories produced mainly by Karl Marxand Friedrich Engels, adapted the Hegelian dialectic into arguments regarding traditional materialism
