Where we’re going

King Coe tha Great



Where We're Going... By: King Coe The Great Since we've seen our past; now let us see where we're going... Too many of us have the potential to lead our people, but fail to utilize it. Why? I don't know but enough is enough!! Our forefathers fought tooth and nail to get us to where we are today and it's still not enough. Let us not let the "Underground Railroad" be for naught. Don't let the deaths of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Fred Hampton, Jonathan Jackson, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, Eric Gardner, Rekia Boyd, Sean Bell, LeQuan McDonald, Andy Lopez, Sandy Hook, The Carolina Church shooting or any other life lost because of racism be for nothing. How long will we be considered deaf, dumb and blind?? W.E.B. DuBois said that there was a "talented tenth" amongst the Blaq Race. This % of blaqs are supposed to lead us out of our struggles and into our greatness!! They are our future doctors, lawyers, principals, dentists, chemists, judges, entrepreneurs, bankers, astronauts and even presidents. We've lived through a great time in the history of Hybrid Amerika. We lived to see Dr. King's vision manifest into a reality exactly 40 years as he predicted it. A Blaq president! Whatever one's opinion may be... it happened! Facts!! He is that talented 10th Mr. Dubois spoke of in the year of 1903. So why can't we continue producing Oprah Winfrey's, Barack Obama's, Cornel West's, Raven Symone's, Lisa Raye's, Taraj P. Heason's, Vivica Fox's, Thurgood Marshall's, Jesse William's, Martin Lawrence's, Regina King's, Tupac's, Ice Cube's, Wayan Brothers's, Condolesa Rice's, etc., etc... There is nothing but space and opportunity ahead of us. Prison is a form of modern slavery designed to keep us from being who and what our abilities will us to be. How long will we continue to fake our gangster? Because gangsterism was created to serve and protect our families first and then our communities second. And anything that interfered with those duties were dealt with as an enemy to our people. Let us stop taking away and replenish our people. For now that we know where we came from; it's clearer to see where we're heading. I thank each and everyone who took the time to read this message. I leave you with peace, respect and encouragement to conquer this struggle for liberty and greatness, and our fight for equality and justice.. We strive to struggle, we struggle to survive...
