urbgriot said it best "economics is an extension of culture..."

The one-sidedness that you are requiring of the responder is narrow and meaningless. To "look past" culture and base all of the problems of minority simply on their "economic situations," is not only ridiculous but impossible. Culture is NOT, I repeat, NOT a variable within the equation of economics, attitudes, stereotypes, etc. Instead culture is the culmination of guidelines, rules and structure that make the equation even possible.


***Words of Wisdom***

"Every time you rise from your sleeping state, you have been reincarnated. Every time you recover from a bad experience, you have been reincarnated. Every time you have been given a new lease on life, you have been reincarnated. Every time you breath in and out, take in the fresh breath of life and feel the divine intelligence flowing in and around you, you have been reincarnated."- Mfundishi Bakari

On "love":

"I am in love everyday, whether I am with someone or not. Why? All love is based on a search for spirit. For me love is timeless, transcendent, peaceful, freeing, soul-based, unifying, and enhanced evolution. This is the basis of my activism."- Nettrice, the embodiment of Oshun

"Since we all make up the rules as we go along, love can mean many different things to many different people. But, for me love is a total commitment to understanding that is not limited to just people but is open to the totality of life. As long as we approach love from a fear based mentality and perceive it through veils of guardedness and anxiety, it will always be restricted by our fears."- Mfundishi Bakari
