The UNION Is In A STATE…

The UNION Is In A STATE…

During President Obama’s State of the Union Address this Evening, January 25, 2011, he will discuss investing and or spending, and the topic of investing/spending for Education will most likely come up. This topic of discussion seems to have caused some consternation amongst Republicans in past months because they don’t see the need for investing/spending on education. This to Me is ridiculous because it seems that EDUCATION should be at the top of the list of things to invest in for America. Educational Investing/Spending would allow everyone to get an optimal education making America, and Americans, more competitive in a World market and putting individuals in a better position as far as being prepared to handle or live everyday life.

‘Why shouldn’t everyone have the best Education they can get?’

I’ve heard it said that some don’t want the ‘minorities’ in America to have the BEST Education that they can receive because it makes them too competitive in our Society and causes them the chance to advance. Minorities should just continue to be IGNORANT, never have Unity and continue committing GENOCIDE through violence, drugs and sex. ‘Competing with whom? Other Americans…?’  I hear this and Pray that it’s not a TRUTH, that it’s only Blindness in the eyes of a few, but then I’m most likely ‘Hoping Against Hope’ and will be the one that is Blind…

If the statement that I heard is TRUTH its Terrifyingly Sad but what’s more Saddening than that is the fact that Minorities fall for it or play right into it because of their actions and the way that they choose to live. Now I understand that a lot of individuals amongst the number of Minorities believe that they have to choose the way of life they live because ‘someone’ is holding them back from obtaining an Education and allowing them the opportunity to advance in life but this type of thinking or belief has to STOP or CHANGE because as long as Minorities have this mindset, knowing that another person or group doing ALL that they can to hold another back is Wrong and the fact of Minorities BELIEVING it as TRUTH amongst themselves is Wrong, things will never CHANGE or get better.

When we, Minorities or anyone for that matter, sees that they are being WRONGED by another it is not the time to be quiet and just allow it to happen, believing it as TRUTH and playing into it…Its time to stand and do ALL that you can in a Civilized and Peaceful manner to find a resolution that will work for ALL involved.  As long as Minorities continue to do as they have done and continue to do at present, playing into the LIE and making it TRUTH amongst their numbers, not saying to themselves, ‘This is enough! This cannot be the way things are supposed to be! It’s time to take a stand and bring about a CHANGE for the better for ALL,’ things won’t CHANGE, like President Obama hoped and pressed for in his campaign and Education will not be what America chooses to Invest or Spend its money on.

And, anyone that has the belief that ‘You will be better off by holding another back, whether individual or group, by whatever means you try to stop their progression,’ you are Wrong for thinking you should or could do this to another and your ‘COMEUPPANCE’ is around the bend.

People…America…We need to ‘Wake Up,’ come together in Unity and bring about a CHANGE for us ALL or we’ll forever be LOST!

On The Mall…

 

On The Mall

Thousands of People

No Face the same as the One

Next to it

Not Shopping for Things…Not Shopping at All

But Seeking…Seeking for a Word

Awaiting a Word

From a Man

A Leader…A Visionary

A Prophet…A Deliverer

And, at the same time a Threat

Ears listening

Anxiously…In the Silence

Among so Many

Then…

‘I Have A Dream…’

Breaks the Silence to Fall upon Ears

Ears that aren’t Deaf

Ears that long to Hear

Ears belonging to a People that know there is a Better Way

 

Listen…

The Words of Dr. King still resonate Today

‘GQ’ Gentleman’s Quality

GQ Gentleman’s Quality…

There used to be a time, not long ago, when being a Gentleman was looked at as the only way to be. A Man would wear his clothing to project the BEST part of whom he was. He would carry himself in a way that projected confidence, self-respect, intelligence, some sense of pride and some dignity. A Man would speak to a Woman in a way that showed he respected her and saw her as a Rose to be handled delicately, to let her know she was Special. During those days, not long ago, a Man was just that…A Gentle-Man…

I look around today and this Gentleman that used to exist is very hard to find in today’s Society. There are a few of Us ‘GENTLEMEN’ still out there but we are becoming extinct by the day. This is happening because we have adopted this ‘hard’ or ‘thuggish’ way of life that seems to make us feel as if we are stronger or more powerful than if we were the Gentlemen we should be. Walking around with our pants below our waists, our clothing many sizes larger than we are, speaking incorrect English, having a scowl upon our faces, acknowledging or speaking to Women as if they have been put here by GOD for our pleasure, not trying to educate ourselves or elevate our minds to a higher plane, having mediocre standards and having no sense of GODLY or Manly pride. This is a shame and we should ALL step back, Men and Women alike, and reevaluate where we have come from and where we are headed if we do not change this way of thinking or living.

Men, we need to gain back our ‘GENTLEMANLINESS’ and be the Gentle-Men that GOD created us to be. GOD placed Jesus here on Earth for a short time to not only die for us and save us from our Sins, but to show us an example of how a Man should live and carry himself in his daily walk. Jesus was the ‘consummate’ Gentleman… He was Gentle with everyone that He met as He went from place to place healing, performing Miracles and giving the masses an example of how life should be lived but He was also ‘stern’ when He needed to be, being a Man when He saw or felt things were not right or not in accordance with His Father’s Word. Jesus did ALL of this with His robe around His shoulders, not hanging off, with confidence in who He was, not concerned with what others said about Him, with self-respect and respect for others, with intelligence and dignity. He acknowledged everyone, Women and Men, with respect, nothing less.

As Men, we need to follow Jesus’ example and those before us who carried themselves as Gentlemen and have the Courage to step up and be the ‘GENTLEMEN’ we should be and raising the standards of the World we live in to its highest level and leave ALL of this mediocre thinking behind, putting it to rest. Not only do we Men have to adopt this way of GENTLEMNLINESS but Women, you have to step up and stop falling for anything less than a Gentleman in your life. Women, you have become so accustomed to the ‘LIE’ of a Man being ‘hard’ or ‘thuggish’ to be seen as though he is a Man, that you see a TRUE Gentleman as ‘soft’ or as ‘less than a Man.’ Women, you have to put a stop to Men approaching you in a disrespectful way and only allow a Gentleman to come into your World. (Anything less is a waste!) Women, make the Men step up and they will make the changes from the ‘LIE’ that you know today to the Gentlemen they should be, giving you what it is you want and have been missing for so long.

I choose to be a ‘GENTLEMAN.’ A ‘GENTLE-MAN’ because that to Me is the only way to walk through life confidently and upstanding, presenting myself in a way that is acceptable and GOOD in ALL ways.

Men let’s step up, be Gentlemen and show the World…Show the Women…Show the Young Men what it means to be a GENTLE-MAN.

I hope you choose the ‘GENTLEMANLY’ way…The ONLY Way…
