John Lewis Dead at 80: an End of an Era.

John Lewis Dies, Grand Closing – Grand Opening

A civil rights icon passed on Friday. Mr. John Lewis dead at 80:  an end of an era. Now is the beginning of a new era, the era of Black empowerment.

With our civil rights icons finally passing on, now is the time for us to stop marching and start building. As I mentioned in my last post, the Black Community (aka. Blackistan aka the BC) made a grave error. We choose to advocate for civil rights & not carry on the mission that Booker T. Washington laid for us:

“I have begun everything with the idea that I could succeed, and I never had much patience with the multitudes of people who are always ready to explain why one cannot succeed.”

― Booker T. Washington, Up from Slavery

Booket T. also had this to say:

“No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem.”

― Booker T. Washington

From Good reads Booker T Washington quotes

These words are simply the truth & it does not matter where you start off in life, what matters is that you know where you are going. Let’s look into this further as we mourn the passing of one era and the birth of a new one.

The Black Empowerment Era

To be truthful the Black Empowerment era has been underway for quite some time, but it’s time to make it official. Black thinkers, like The Black Authority & Hotep Jesus have championed this for the longest time. The main issue in the BC (alias Blackistan) is that we stopped building & started focusing the majority of our attention on complaining about oppression.

It’s time to stop. In this new era the focus will be on building – building our own banking alternatives, building our own schools\institutions, on investing & entrepreneurship. We still have time to get this done – BUT time is running out.

The Trump Years – It’s Time To Build

While the BC still has time to get things back on track, time is running out. The Tump years are coming to an end, if then end comes this November or if we get 4 more years (which would be a Godsend) we do not have anymore time to BS.

The borders will be opened family, the third world will flow into the country & do you know who will take the brunt of the hit from this? You guessed it – US.

So, it’s time to learn a skill (eg. programming, computer learning) use those skills to secure employment either self-employment or traditional, have your side hustle, have your crypto stocked up (2021 will be epic) then keep scaling your side business until it is a profitable ongoing concern.

When you start out, start out small. If you lack skills, take any job you get while you develop & build up your skills. Study, read write & research subjects any many varying fields.

Commit yourself to being a student for life, don’t obsess over putting a piece of paper on the wall – focus on accumulating wealth & not on building up your self esteem. Do all of this with a spirit of gratitude, with a spirit of humbleness, for this breeds success & brings good things to you.

If we do not do these things, if we keep marching, rioting, plus complaining about the White man like a bunch of Nig-nogs with barely halve a brain – we are done. Because what has all the marching gotten us.

With the passing of John Lewis This is indeed an end of an era, but it is also an opening of an even better one.

So that concludes this week’s blog post. Next week I will ask a question to the #BlackLiesMatter cult.

Until next time,

Black Capo
