|Soul loss of black americans.|
"How did Black Americans go from aspiring to excellence to glorifying debased and otherwise degrading behavior?" is a good question someone asked. It deserves a thoughtful response, and a nod in the direction of the right answer(s).
In a word: soul loss.
For the most part it is a question asked just to be asking. Healers at the deeper levels know most are not committed to excellence because freedom is attached to that goal! More to the point: any group who fights hard to call themselves niggers will be just that! And niggers ain't free, and niggers don't like aspirations above nigger shit!
This is the consciousness of death beat upon the drums Blacks no longer use properly!
And then moments come, and there are gatherings of a class of Black Americans, like Cécile Charles who embody what their ancestors came from and learned to survive with from their complex spirituality deeply connected to the urge to excel far beyond mere survival.
