knock knock... here are the opportunities.

Opportunity Knocks...
 
Brother Tracy Gibson.
 
 
Opportunity.  knocks. [Knock, Knock!!] I am a very gifted, well- mannered and healing Spirit. A Black Radical thinker, a mortal Black man with Godly Ways and Black Visionary who is in business.  I need people around me who want to go into international marketing and international business in a BIG WAY!! I have to be honest with you, if you are about finding new markets AND returning a large percentage of the profits back to starving AND disenfranchised communities THEN you DO want to call me.  If you are after helping People more than exploiting People then I DO want YOU to call me.  By the way--I am a very radical thinker and a homosexual.  I am 57 years old, but I have ground-breaking ideas, but a slim wallet. I have been ripped off repeatedly, but I am learning. First of all THIS IS NOT A GAME as they tell you in business school.  ALSO: when they say don't mix business with pleasure--they are fools. Just Down Right Foolish!!! This is MY curriculum!! It is gained from the school of Hard Knocks and from learning the Hard Way.  I want people who have MBA's in business as well as street people and Homeless People, the disenfranchised and Uneducated People. AND everybody in between with or without BA's and BS's as far as degrees and qualifications are concerned!!! If you are in Community College, that is fine. I don't need a hand out, but a hand up!!! I have been doing this take-off-flight for some time now. About 15 years. People have run over me and taken what I have to offer, but they soon find out that GOD brings them right back for a secret hearing on copyright infringement, intellectual property rights and the general lack of good principals and virtue that exist in the business world. If you are about that kind of negativity, also, don't call me...  I am here to change that all around and bring forth better values, more ethical behavior and less greed, ruthlessness, nastiness, back-biting, competition and hatred in business and in the world generally.... I am willing to work with other businesses, and individuals, partnerships and so forth, but they must understand my value system and NOT be threatened by it.  The status quo is very much interested in stopping me. [They Will soon learn that the REAL threat is NOT to listen]. That is on My part as Well. I have a network of friends across the country [About 170 people, just about ALL Black people] who I am excited about and helping make money for.  I have a few components in place to help them, but I could use an infusion of cash, and ideas with no questions asked and no strings attached....... I do NOT represent any kind of cash or financial rip off, game, slimy people, negativity, greedy scams, fast-cash-making schemes, terrorists or other such foolishness and folly. I am a highly ethical, and a strongly Spiritual person [A Polytheist], with a strong Christian root and background... I DO NOT WANT TO destroy North America and the North American Corporate concept completely, but right now North America and its' businesses are ``on the table'' losing life force very quickly. I am here to do radical surgery. There are others who want the patient to die, but I think there is still time to change things massively and bring about fresh, new life, as a woman giving birth does.  My qualifications are not a physician’s degree, but over 35 years as a community activist and a person who wants real equality and to see formerly oppressed people get adequate funds to not only survive, but to thrive and thrive Well... I don't need another person who wants to rip me off--you have to take a ticket and get into the back of the line to do that--rip me off that is--and it only leads to disfavor with GOD... Considering some of the things SHE is doing right now, I don't think you want that... If you want to work to move people ahead and forward, no matter what your ethnic background, sexuality or gender or gender identity or religion is, and no matter what your age is, you have found the right place... If you e-mail me at: BLockBoi75@Yahoo.Com

or call me at 1.215.471.64.94. I will send you a resume and the three things I am working hardest on right now. I am sending a resume because it is only one page long. If they told you a resume needs be only one page don't listen to that. A resume needs to be as long as YOU think it needs to be to fully tell who you are, what your goals are and what you are looking for in life.  If a resume doesn't tell you that it is worthless. ANY employer who only wants a slight sketch of you on a resume to hire you is also a fool. I want to hear from you.  I have helped find jobs for people unintentionally and intentionally as they fall all over themselves [and each other] thinking there are great financial advantages to ripping me off--this is NOT true...   My competition--and I really DON'T have any such thing as competition--REALLY, needs to understand that I need people to finance me and work for me and or WITH me. I say I don't have ANY competition because there are people doing similar things as I am doing, but we are NOT in competition. We are ALL working for good in God's Eye's. They are most likely working with and through a not-for-profit company. I did that for a while, but find the profit mode much more to my liking because I want to and am hiring people and that is a great thing.   Believe me I have run an office before even though I am disabled with a mental health issue [I'm manic depressive, but I've been very, very stable for the last 15 years]... NOW, do you get that kind of honesty and truth from the general business community and the general businessman? I don't think so... I want to hear from you. If you are just a man or woman or transgendered person who wants to hang out and learn from me, I hope you will call me as Well. Because I will learn from you as Well....  I LOVe PEOPLE!!! What are your dreams, your expectations, your aspirations and your goals--WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO MOST IN LIFE, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT AT NIGHT AND AS SOON AS YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING? I am not interested in  how you want to exploit people, but how you want to help mankind, woman kind and Transgendered kind--Gay, Straight, multi-ethnic, multi-religious, BLACK, Latin Especially,  non-religious ALL of humanity including all races, creeds, colors and what have you..... OH, and by the way, that INCLUDES women.  If you want to keep women in the back seat with Gay people and Black people and Latin people and other disenfranchised groups of people I don't know how you got this ad, but you need to throw it away and move on to something else. Everybody takes a Front Seat on this bus--at least ethically speaking...  My name is Brother Tracy Gibson.  Please contact me as soon as you can. I look forward to hearing from you very, very soon... peace be with you... Send me a resume and I'll send you mine... BrotherTracy11@GMail.Com or BLockBoi75@Yahoo.Com

black seed

I Am A Black Seed…


By Brother Tracy Gibson…

I Am a Black Seed…

Tomorrow is a thousand yesterdays from now…

And A Thousands Tomorrows from Yesterday...

White Europeans feed off of My Soul…

They ate my ancestors alive

Through a process called slavery\or

The Black Holocaust

They don’t like to talk about it

We Live it

We are

Homeless

Starving

And Angry

Because they are still

Profiting from

Monsanto and Wal-Mart

Taking and not giving

They are ruthless

Cocaine sniffing Wall Street Leaches

They are Advertising agents

Mad Men

Dreaming up a new scream

To get into Black Pocketbooks and Black Wallets…

They are trying to take away another

Generation of Black Children

To the Prison farms to make your

Clothing at $3. An hour

Child Labor camps

The Fascists and the Racists

Actually WON World War II

You don’t skip a beat from the corporate

To the street

You think you have us BEAt

I saw a Tee-Shirt some White T Was wearing

That said ``We beat your BEST’’

You haven’t seen Our Best

We keep them protected

This system and society needs to be

Deconstructed Pin in HAT…

You constructed it largely

Without us

It Is OZ; it is Maybelle i-liner bent out of shape

It is a cold brusque that has lost its taste

It is White rice and White bread with no butter

Not sustainable

It MUST be impeached

It is a fake

An Ole muffin

A Tin Can

A Tired Iron

A carpetbagger and a Gerrymanderer

You forgot to ask for, ignored and rejected

The Help of Black people and Other People of Colour…

You have planted resentment, hatred and greed

In your own mind

It will reap you benefits

Five times what your planted

You are weeds

We must take our seed away from you and

Plant it in fresh rich fertile soil elsewhere

Monsanto Will Not Stop Us--even though they steal seeds

No, not the cemetery variety

The cemeteries Will be filled

They will be filled with your people even your babies if you

Don’t stop teaching hatred, greed and a life that

Is un-attainable for most and un-sustainable for almost all…

We come in Peace,

But you press us towards war,

We will not be easily forced for a fair one

BUT You will soon find the Caribbean and Africa and North and South Vietnam

And North and South America and Latin America OFF LIMITS

For the type of ole world robber baron

Capitalism you want to inflict on people

People who are Now awake…..

We have warned you a million times

And you laughed in our faces and stepped on our toes

and rolled up

To the so-called legitimate bank of America

Awash in drug money and other

Ill-gotten gain………

Your time has come to an end…

OUR Time has arrived and will last for

17,000 generations....

If you are wise, you will join in this

fruit-bearing Liberation

It is filled with Peace, Wholesomeness, LOVe, Giving, Tables of Bounty,

Respectfulness, Peer-responsibility and sharing wealth and the day's crops

June Bug and Vanessa aren’t

Listening to M and M any longer

Mos Def please, a little Common…

A Little Roots, a Little of Wyn ton Marsala's

Hot Jazz

A Little Erica Badu

A Little Macy Gray

Our taste Buds May be poor for right now

But we are generating a taste for Classical

Jazz and The Lion in us Monk and John

Cole Train and Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn…

``A Tisket a Tasket a Brown and Yellow Basket’’

The White Basket is a basket case……

The wool was actually over your eyes all the time

You tried to sell us our own inferiority, all

Frizzed up Hollywood style, but

You ended up proving your own

Weaknesses and inferiority…

Who is your next Patsy—Obama is about revealed to the world

right about now

For what is He but

A Negative Zero…

You can’t lie yourself out of this one

Sucker….

I’m No Longer afraid to

Call Myself a Black Nationalist

And get the Community Education

I need to have the upper hand

Right Now…..

Right Now…

Jobs For Summer For Inner City Youth

Exxon Mobile
Corporate Headquarters
5959 Los Colinas Boulevard
Irving, Texas 75039-2298



Dear Concerned Corporate President or CEO:

I have rallied against you in the past, but I think, now, there is something we can work on together for the betterment of our country. I am proposing that Exxon Mobile put forth an employment program for inner city youth this summer in the United States. This will put needed dollars in the hands of our inner city youth; stem the growing tide of crime in inner cities by giving youth something to do over the Summer; and provide a desperately needed Public Relations boost to your company. Three positive things that will help all involved!!

This Summer Employment program will also help beleaguered cities with needed wage taxes and jobs. I am sure that Exxon Mobile can use the boost in Public Relations because I saw few people supporting your station in our neighborhood before it closed recently due to lack of support.

I know youth can use the jobs because there are few and far between jobs to go around in the communities across the nation. There will probably be only limited economic improvements by this Summer… People would appreciate the jobs and look on your company in a better way. The young people, both male and female, both Black, White, Asian and Latin, could certainly use the professional experience and the economic boost for themselves & their families.

The cost to Exxon Mobile would more than be off-set by the positive word of mouth, increased sales to a company that is trying to help the community instead of just profiting from it, and by creating better service to customers all summer.

Please let me know how I can help this idea become a reality. There is no time to waste. Young people could help with minor car repair; cleaning auto windshields, pumping gas, cleaning the stations up and so forth and their work will pay off in an increase in sales and customer traffic.

I hope to hear from you as soon as possible concerning this important matter. I have included a resume for your consideration.

Citgo Petroleum Corporation

P.O. Box 4689

Houston, TX 77210-4689





Dear Concerned Corporate President or CEO:





I have supported you in the past, and I think, now, there is something we can work on together for the betterment of our country. I am proposing that Citgo put forth an employment program for inner city youth this summer in the United States. If not this summer, how about for next summer? This will put needed dollars in the hands of our inner city youth; stem the growing tide of crime in inner cities by giving youth something to do over the Summer; and provide a needed Public Relations boost to your company because all oil companies are being looked on negatively as the big BP oil spill takes hold…. These are three positive things that will help all involved!!



This Summer Employment program will also help beleaguered cities with needed wage taxes and jobs. I am sure that Citgo can use the boost in Public Relations, even though your company has a solid record of helping the poor and less fortunate and not just worrying about your bottom line.



I know youth can use the jobs because there are few and far between jobs to go around in the communities across the nation. There will probably be only limited economic improvements by this Summer… People would appreciate the jobs and look on your company in a better way. The young people, both male and female, both Black, White, Asian and Latin, could certainly use the professional experience and the economic boost for themselves & their families. It would also build discipline in our youth…



The cost to Citgo would more than be off-set by the positive word of mouth; increased sales to a company that is trying to help the community instead of just profiting from it; and by creating better service to customers all summer.



Please let me know how I can help this idea become a reality. There is no time to waste. Young people could help with minor car repairs; cleaning auto windshields; pumping gas; cleaning the stations up and so forth and their work will pay off in an increase in sales, customer satisfaction and customer traffic.





I hope to hear from you as soon as possible concerning this important matter. I have included a resume for your consideration.

Where Are The Films That Worship Black Women.....

Where are the fils that worship Black women's Beauty...There must be hundreds of films that fortray the beauty of White women.  ``Body Heat,'' Cleopatria,'' Helena of Troy,'' ``Funny face,'' ``Mame,'' ``A Star Is Born,'' ``Funny Girl,'' and on and on.

But I can't think of a single film that shows a world conflict or the start of a beauty trend that depicts the beauty of our fantastic Black women, can you.... Name me one or several and I'll buy you an ice cream at 53rd and Chester in Philadelphia this summer...

We Can Think for Ourselves Successfully...

What do I Mean?


I Don't Think there is any sin!! At least calling it that is not doing us any good. Good People are sane enough, tuff enough, level-headed enough, ethical enough and positive- thinking enough to think for themselves if they are Well read and have taken the time to educate themselves about their true history. They can lead themselves morally and ethically. The Bible, I believe, and even organized religion, can be used as a base and part of the backbone for our moral and social and ethical base, but We as Black people, and eventually ALL people, have the power to make our own decisions and obey the law and make the right decisions and not allow ourselves to be pulled down by what we believe are evil spirits, negativity and hatefulness.  The belief in sin has been twisted and turned about to separate us as Black and Progressive and Radical left people and pull the rug out from under us. If I may, I say, toss out the rug and the oppressive use of it and the concept of sin!! We can see through it and it is not helping us move forward… Stay truthful to yourself and your People.  Keep your word and listen to the least of us ALWAYS!!! Also: Listen to people who consistently make sense.  There are crazy people among us, but there are a lot of very level-headed thinkers as well who can help us go far.....

Tracy Gibson.

Important Letter to Quency Jones From Last Year...

From: Brother Tracy Gibson
213 South 49th Street
Philadelphia, Penn 19139-4205

BLockBoi75@Yahoo.Com

Dear Brother Jones:

I hope you and your family are doing fine and well. I hear your daughter has a new movie coming out. I plan to see it, if finances allow. I want to make some suggestions for your corporation and your Foundation to invest in. My Corporation which is called ``Brother Tracy Gibson and Associates, INc.'' There are four components I am interested in getting funding for. 1} I have two books I Really, Really want to publish. The first book is entitled: ``A Grassroots Criteria for Liberation.'' This volume is dedicated to Black youth and there issues. It also relates to Latin youth and any other poor, disenfranchised and or poor youth who need direction, help in thinking more clearly and a better attitude about life. It is designed to build better values in our young men and women including more responsibility for the decisions they make; more respect for the people in the community including peers, the elderly, their parents, teachers, guardians, police and firemen; more dignity about themselves; more interests in Black history and Blacks in antiquity; more interests in business and finance; more interests in education and learning and starting businesses, etc. This first volume is designed and told by telling my own personal story and interjecting political analysis and old family stories with life-lessons, celebrity profiles and reviews of artistic events are included. I need $20,000.00 to get this book published. The second volume is entitled: ``Let the Children Gather--A Fantasy World of Real Life Poems.'' It is a book of poetry that reflects the high level of anger, frustration and resentment that is ramped among Black male youth at being blocked out of the economic and financial progress they see going on in their community and at seeing what little progress they are allowed to make often be suppressed, stolen and or ignored. I need $15,000.00 to publish this book. 2} I want to start a mostly Black, but partially multi-cultural security firm to help protect the growing and valued Black infrastructure across North America, but especially right here in West Philadelphia and North Philadelphia. I am in contact with a Miss Stephanie White who has a successful security company in Dallas, Texas {1.469.230.1849} Address: Post Office Box 181947, Dallas Texas 75218. I have also been in touch with a Mr. August Scott of Brooklyn, New York who worked several years for the Metropolitan Museum of Art as a security guard. I plan to hire both of them as consultants as I begin the process to start my own local security firm. You may know the story from the 1920's in Tulsa, Oklahoma where what was called the ``BLACK WALL STREET'' was destroyed after a racial incident sparked a White Supremest Riot. We cannot afford to have our valuable Black infrastructure destroyed in a matter of days when it took us 50 years to built it up Not only were some 350 people killed, but hotels, restaurants, large stores, funeral homes and other types of businesses owned and operated by Black people were also destroyed and burned to the ground. We need $150,000.00 in seed money for our security firm to be centered and headquartered in Philadelphia. We plan to hire former police officers, firemen and fire women, veterans coming back from the two wars our Nation has been involved in and young people who desperately need full-time and part-time employment in the Philadelphia region. We will have training in Philadelphia and a full, state of the art, Green, environmentally friendly building for our headquarters. 3} Another aspect of our corporation is called ``The Knowledge Hut Business Plan and The Knowledge Hut On-Line Store.'' This store will provide CD's, DVD's, Movies, Tee-Shirts, Greeting Cards, Posters, Books and a few light and healthy snack foods for young people to purchase and for their parents and guardians to buy for them and sometimes, to enjoy for themselves. Grandchildren, nieces, youth, children, cousins, second cousins and nephews will find delight in the products and will also be gaining an education in the strong values and ethics that are so lacking in our communities. The ONLY Products to be sold in our stores will be those products that uphold high community standards and values; represent positive social values and positive knowledge and understanding of complex political issues. The products will not just be thrown at our young customers, our parents and grand parents and guardians, but will be specifically selected to build, again, positive values in our people's youths such as responsibility, reliability, punctuality, obeying the law, business ethics, not to bully or smoke, how to start businesses in a hostile and tough economy and a tough business environment, and how to negotiate out of problems instead of using violence and intimidation to solve problems--a lesson our own national government and many other corporations could use to learn. Many of the products we are planning to sell we will produce at our own factory and hire some of the youth to get paid good living wages for their efforts. {We are starting as an on-line store to avoid the tremendous cost of building a modern, state of the art, Green factory right in North or West Philadelphia at first, but we don't think it will take too long before our dreams come to life and our hard work pays off.} We did test marketing of greeting cards and Tee-Shirts from April 2006 to September of 2007 at 3819 Lancaster Avenue, Philadelphia, Penn 19104, when we had an office here in Philadelphia's Powelton Village Section. We will be Progressive and stress education and knowledge building in every aspect of what we do. Our whole corporate effort is aimed at helping stabilize and support our youth. Our Books will not be selected to titillate and sexually excite {such books will not be sold by us}, but our Books will be selected to educate, inform, build self-help and self-survival skills as well as build self-esteem, self-respect, family values and other positive traits for the Black Family to build from. They will also help stimulate intellectual growth while helping develop good study habits, good hygiene and neighbor-building skills as our young people learn how to get along with other races, other religions and other types of people who are different from them. We are seeking $450,000.00 for ``The Knowledge Hut Business Plan'' and ``The Knowledge Hut Stores.'' {You can see our full Business Plan by going to Google: inputting Brother Tracy Gibson: and clicking on ``The Politics of Real'' This is my Blog. You will see a section that says ``The Knowledge Hut Business Plan'' 4} Another component we are planning is our Talent Agency--NOT YET NAMED... I remember once taking a tenant {I have been a Landlord and Property Owner and Property Manager for 28 years}. I took a tenant to try-out for an International Star-Search Program and fond a line wrapped around the Hotel on City Line Avenue for 4 blocks!! I have people in my church and in the Black community who I know who want to partner with me for this aspects of the business. My church's name is The Unity Fellowship Christ Church of Philadelphia, which is part of a network of some 30 churches across the country. I have family members who work in the entertainment business who I am sure will also help with consulting on this matter.

That is it in a nutshell!! I hope you can help. I have some 35 years of dedicated work behind me as a community organizer and a community activist. {Please see my Resume (Under Brother Tracy Gibson's Resume) enclosed or on the Blog--``The Politics of Real''

My Corporate EIN number is 27-0145705

I have contacted several Billionaires about my ideas including: Warren Buffett and George Sorros.... But neither of them have contacted me as yet. I hope you will give me a chance, because what I want to do will work towards the betterment of our entire country in the long run, as our Black youth stop being seen as the major ``problem'' and start to live active, productive, viable and proactive lives. The more we do to help them be viable and productive on the front end, the less we will have to spend on the back end for prison space, food and shelter in the court system, detention homes and the prison system. I thank you for your consideration.

Post Script: I deeply appreciate the work you have done and continue to do through the various programs you have founded and supported such as ``PROJECT Q,'' The Debt relief programs for Third World Countries, ``The We Are THE World'' Project, and many others. You through your efforts, have literally made the world a better place. GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Publishing Needs.....

I met a new friend at my neighborhood Block Party last Saturday, June of 2012. Her name is S. J. Braxton. She has a business where she provides Flyers; Wedding Invitations; Letterhead; Business Cards; Church Programs; Conference Booklets and so forth, just about everything you need to publish, for a resonable price. She can be reached at 1.302.743.0644 or at her e-mail address at: sjbraxton@yahoo.com




I found her to be very easy to talk with, polite, curtious and professional. GIVE HER A CALL FOR YOUR PRINTING NEEDS--I KNOW I AM!!!

For Parents of Troubled Gay Black Youth [Males] at least 18 years of age. The Sophicicated Noble Gents of Philadelphia.....

I want to start a group of Sophisticated Noble Gentlemen of Philadelphia that will go to the Library together, study together, learn together and become responsible, learned, kind, and caring gentlemen. I originally thought this would be for Gay young men, because I'm gay, but if the community will have me, I think I can handle this for ALL gentlemen between about 18 and 25.  I think our young men, of all classes and persuasions, need more parenting than their original parents can handle.  Many young men don't have a Father figure and a man around to teach them dignity, respect, a LOVing nature, kindness towards women [if we are interested in women for partners or not], and even how to cook.  We need a community center to operate out of and another older man to help give the young men direction.  If there are more than five young men, I will probably need help.  We need to be teaching our young men honor and dignity and respect and how to act and react with high values and ethically, instead of get hot tempered and do something non-thinking and on the spur of the moment.  We need to use our minds, not our fists.  This could be a great pilot program for BME or the Colours Organization. 

Martin Luther King Jr. Was A Day Dreamer...

Unlike many People, Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. did His dreaming in the Day Time.  I don't know what He thought about when He was asleep, but His dreams came to His mind and were expounded and worked on while He was alive and awake.

This should clear up some confusion about those of us who say ``He was just a dreamer.'' He wasn't a dreamer in the traditional sense of the word.  He thought of, devised plans, and worked diligently on His plans for makinig His day time dreams--His vision of and for the world, to come true with each and every little step and movement He made while He graced us with His presence on This Earth.
And as The Reverend Rutherford B. Hayes [ A Brother and fellow Activist from Texas on the National Board of the National Action Network] says: Doctor King was fighting against the ``Nightmare of Poverty'' up until His last day on our Precious Planet earth.

If we don't understand this basic concept about Martin, we will never understand Him and the important legacy and work He left us to do.

A Real, Authentic Black Man—An Indigenous Black Man…

By Brother Tracy Gibson


Your sandals are like the ones Jesus Christ wore…
Your hair is locked, or perfectly braded by your woman or your man…
Your hands are worn from the heat and toil of working in the fields…
Your brow is wet with the honest result of toil…
Your ancestors sprang from the Nile Valley as they overlooked the Dynasty, the Empire of Ancient Africa they had created…
You are now ALL OVER THE WORLD..
From Egypt to Chad to Gibbon to Atlanta to Kenya to Philadelphia…
You are there and have seen it all…
You are a Christ Child…a MASTER of men…
A man who owns time itself… But you don’t Lord over other men and women…
You are the Indigenous One—not the invader…
You are the essence of love And Respect for humanity…
Your rugged feet walked through Nazareth and Bethlehem
Your ancestor’s eyes were cast into the sky to create the SUN And the STARS…
You are an ancient African man and
As you walk through the City of New York, the perfect mix of
The Ancient and the Contemporary, few Europeans understand the dimensions of your existence among them…

Frankly, you are superior…

You have come from dirt and dust to once again rule the world…
You are a champion of fairness, justice and righteousness among men who plunder and hate….
You are an African Emperor in a pin striped suit

READY FOR THE WORLD…….AND Still,

You are NOT, allowed to be the hero and romantic lead because the mere vision of you shapes thought, time and response ….

But let’s be clear, if you are not a large part of the shaping of the New World, there will be NO NEW WORLD…

Control Your Stress Levels...

To Control Stress is to TAKE ACTION in your life. It is to say ``NO'' to allowing the ole established order--who ever you think they may be--[or anyone or anything who is trying to dictate to you without having done their homework and having your best interests at heart and who are not coming from a position of LOVe and are just wanting to hoard power and money...] to dictate to you how you will interact with the people of our Nation and the Culture we live in. Reducing stress also allows you to take greater control over your life and to discover more, new positive things about yourself.  See the article on Black Self-LOVe!!!
























I am NOT a doctor or a psychiatrist or a therapist but some of the things that have worked for me in my personal attempts to reduce stress have been:

























































*Calling a good friend and talking out what's bothering me.





















* Turning off Network TV, especially the news, and violent Police Shows and reading a good book, listing to classic jazz [or even some classical European music] or exercising instead.





















* Calling my Pastor at church {Reverend Jeff Haskins} to discuss any serious problems I might be having.





















* Going for a good rudimentary walk {at least five blocks}.





















* Having sex with a significant other or your special partner. [Safe sex is highly recommended!!!]





















* A Good Professional massage will help lower stress.





















*Going to see a good old-fashioned comedy at the movies or an exciting OLD FASHIONED action movie. [Do they still make them?]





















* Other exercise like Aerobics, Jazz Dance or Push Ups or SIT UPS.





















[I have to be honest, at my age, 56, I rarely do these.]





















* Do house work such as cleaning, or washing the dishes or dusting or fixing something that you know for sure how to fix.

























































* Attending church service or visiting with friends...





















* Writing a letter about something that is bothering you or to someone who has hurt you, even if you do not mail it. I suggest putting it in your Bible if you don't mail it.

























































*Listening to the Calming ocean waves and the ocean crashing on rocks or at the shore [This really helps me and is REALLY fantastic... You can buy such natural sounds at major CD stores such as the one at Broad and Chestnjut Str]]

























































Stress reduction, in these difficult economic times we live in, can actually save lives and make life easier because it helps to:





















* Reduce and resolve interpersonal and stress related conflicts.





















* Relax the mind and body.





















* Lower blood pressure.

























































* Burn off dangerous fats.





















* Act as a coping mechanism.

























































* Help you get more enjoyment out of life.





















*And make personal interactions more meaningful and enjoyable.





















* The exercise aspect can also help you lose weight which is very helpful health wise. [Plus you will look better, which is a plus].

























































* Another suggestion is to go to www.Amazon.com and input stress reduction and see what books come up and buy one that is of interest to you.

























































It is important to remember to ``Do Something'' about stress, take an active Roll, instead of get angry and let it eat you up inside.

A Power Letter to Suzie Orman From September 2012 about Standing in Truth and REPARATIONS...

September 19th 2012 Wednesday 2:04 A.M. [Re-Edited Later]


To: Writer Suzie Orman
From: Brother Tracy Gibson

The Black Millionaire's Network

Philadelphia, PA 19139-4205

1.215.471.64.94

Dear Ms. Orman:

I pick up a lot of books on self-help and read about 20 to 30 pages. Then I find some kind of excuse and never finish the books. I was reading ``The Money Class'' and I found the information quite good and useful. However, I was talking with a Black Nationalist friend of mine and because you are White, he totally discounted what you might have been able to contribute to his present financial life situation, which I believe is in need of help, by the way. I spoke with Him about this and I realized He had a point. White people in the U.S. are living on a financial cushion that has been provided by People of colour for generations. By Some estimates by Black historians and Black researchers, there are about $ One Trillion Dollars due Africans and African Americans for past and present discrimination, slavery, The Black Holocaust, illegal financial manipulation through the Banking system and through the Mortgage process, etc. This is something you never, never discuss in your book. It is a reality my Nationalist friends harp on all the time. It is just part of the reason that White people continue to out-strip Non-Whites [Especially Black people, Native Americans and Latinos--at least Some groups of Latinos, especially Puerto Ric an People and especially males]--and it is the reason why when you talk about ``Standing in Your Truth'' I cringe and it also made me put your book down. You are only standing in a partial TRUTH. When you have generations of people of colour who have had their economics and their economies devastated by conquering White Settlers; en slavers with White skin; and discriminating Whites here on the Main Land--and on the Main Line by the Way, as Well--who take all the good jobs for themselves and leave us people of colour with nothing more than serious left-overs--you haven't REALLY looked at the truth for everybody at all. You should read the books I have listed on a separate sheet of paper here by Doctor Charles Ogeletree, Joe R. Feagin and Doctor Claud Anderson. They speak a much deeper truth to Black people, indigenous people, oppressed people and those who feel discriminated against, exploited, used and abused by Whites and by Capitalism {as we know it}. Unless you admit this and acknowledge how this exploitation and continued discrimination has built a cushion for Whites {Which still exists today} and has devastated Blacks, women, the indigenous and exploited people--you are only telling part of the story and you are only standing in a partial Truth yourself.

There are policies--covered under so-called National Security--that allow Blacks only a second-Class existence; There are policies that allow Black and Latin people to be discussed as a consumer class of people for other groups of in-coming Americans to come to Our Communities and set up businesses and pull literally Billions of dollars out of our communities without batting an eyelash. The Jewish People did it; The South Koreans did it; and some New more wealthy and well-connected Latin groups are now doing it. Of course, regular White folk--like Irish, Italians, WASPS, French, German and so forth, have also been about taking our money and giving very, very little back in return... This is why my Nationalist friend gets upset and he has helped me see the falsehood and the hypocrisy in your New Book ``The Money Class.'' At the very least you should have had a section about how Whites through a system of exploitation, degradation and discrimination, have used Government and corporate policy to keep White Male faces at the helm of corporations and keep money in the pockets of Whites that is totally lacking in the pockets of Black people and other exploited groups like women {some among them}, Latinos {some among them}and indigenous peoples like Native Americans.

This is a truth that you are NOT standing in and I challenge you to write a book that looks at this
TRuth so we can really pull the rug off of the more heinous aspects of American life that Whites -- especially Republicans--continue to benefit from and yet refuse to admit is happening. I have worked myself with a group of dedicated Black men and Black women on the REPARATIONS issue which is dedicated to bringing economic justice to OUR cause as Black People. Most recently, I have moved into becoming a business person because I want to have a positive impact on helping myself become more financially sound and also helping my people become more financially sound. I have been working at establishing my business since about 2002 and worked on research and development for years to start my own company. We incorporated in 2006, but still are NOT fully solvent. This is, in part, due to more of the same treatment I mentioned earlier. I don't get much help from our Mayor in Philadelphia, Mr. Michael Nutter, nor Our City Councilpersons Jannie Blackwell and Blondell Reynolds Brown. [I have to ask in a more direct and forthright Way and stop pussyfooting!!] You see, while Black people vote them into office, it is Whites and American Asians who open their checkbooks and write the checks to make their campaign coffers fat and lovely. This is something that creates an imbalance of Power--both social and especially economically--which they are NOT teaching at our city's prestigious Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania and it is something that exploited classes of people are not even fully aware of at the Grass-Roots Level. [This is the reason I have written several books which have yet to be published]. So in the end your book ``The Money Class'' is written on a half-truth. Yes, we MUST ALL take more responsibility for our financial decisions--but this Nation of Ours is by no means a level playing field. It is a field that continues to benefit and prop up people with While skin. The supporters of people with White skin might get red-hot headed but the masses of Black people such as those in North Philadelphia, South West Philadelphia and even parts of West Philadelphia and German Town continue to feel the economic whip of the task-master and continue to be left out in the cold economically.

This is true of the economic policies handed down from the Treasury Department on down to the State Department which continues to allow Blacks and some groups of White poor people and Poor Latin People to be talked about as people who must be kept ``in their place'' and made to remain a ``consumer class'' while White men on means--means that are ill-gotten in many instances--are funnelled into our Nation's best Business Schools to become rich, powerful, connected Captains of Industry. These policies, remain in tact regardless of the colour of the person in the White House and regardless of whether we have a Republican or a Democrat in office. Until you deal with this level of dishonesty, manipulation, exploitation [both historically and present-day] and the evilness inherent in the North American way of life and the American system--you are NOT ``Standing in Truth'' at all. Please read the letter which will be posted on my Google Blog {The Blog is called ``The Politics of Real''. The letter is to Warren Buffet and describes how Whites of means can invest to begin to correct these wrongs, but basically, we as Black people will probably end up correcting these wrongs because White People, quite frankly, have very little record of doing the correct things when it comes to justice and fair play. Please also see the enclosed information about the Black Millionaire's Network which is a path for Black and other oppressed people to create more economic fairness, equality, leverage, stability and economic justice for themselves and help open the eyes of oppressed people to help educate the and level the playing field FOR THEMSELVES!!! BASICALLY IF WE DON'T DO IT, NO ONE WILL!!!

A Fair Warning to The Jewish People...and their Lackies.....

The hoarding of Wealth and Money and the control of wealth, money, stock and currencies by Jewish People and other People who serve their interests and or other greedy and corrupted interests continues to and will always undermine the ability of the Jewish People to take their rightful place among the decent, the righteous and the courageous--unless they take on the mantle of righteous liberators for justice, mend their ways and at least consider advancing to the point where their Homeland is considered property of the world--not just theirs.  I know this is a scary proposition for them, but ALL change is scary for ALL of us.  They can no longer hold the Middle East and the World hostage under the guise of ``Israeli Security.''

Getting Un-Stuck From what is holding us Back and Moving Forward.....in a Great and Positive Way.......

A Getting Un-Stuck and Moving Forward Production.....


By Brother Tracy Gibson...

I was fortunate enough to get my credit rating increased by 200 points over the last nine months. I had to take the initiative and work at it. If you want to get un-stuck I need you to do a few things. Prioritize getting your credit rating up because a low credit score is at the root of many of our financial problems as Black and ``so-called'' oppressed people. [We are really, now, Liberators and the New Ruling Class--even though we still identify with being members of an oppressed class]. There are steps you can take and I am listing some of them for you here:
1] Start off the New Year by refusing to stay stuck. Call my friend Aline Wechsler at Consumer Information Bureau and allow her to help you get into a program to get your credit score for free and follow her program to get your Credit Score Up for the New Year, or better yet, DO IT RIGHT NOW!!!. You will find it easier to buy a house; buy a car; finance investment property; get a personal or business loan and any multitude of other advantages will come along much easier also. There is a cost for Aline's services, [ ABOUT $300.] but that is well worth the expense. She can be reached at: 1.800. 613.13.32 at extension 6870 / or call her direct at 1.954.623.68.70. [Call during regular business hours or later until 8 P.M. or call on Saturday from 12 noon to 7 P.M.]
2] Two young Brothers held a book signing at Giovanni's Room at 12th and Pine, on Saturday night, December 22nd, 2012 to discuss their New Book; ``Don't Just Dream About it... Wake Up! Awaken Your Inner and Outer New World...'' By Darien K. Marshall and Darius L. Jones. I Highly Recommend this book.....
3] ALSO: Get a copy of: ``The Money Class,'' by Suze Orman... I have read most of this book and it will change your ideas about money and how we look at money as consumers instead of people who are serious about holding onto money; saving it; having it in the future; and being ``well off'' enough to be comfortable.... An excellent book.... [Miss Orman's book does not look at the issues of REPARATION and how European People and their country's whole economic structure is based on capitalist racial exploitation.  These issues make the arguments skewed in our direction, but even Susie is NOT ready to deal with that in reality.  None-the-less, her book is well worth reading.]

4] Join The Black Millionaire's Network. [The BMN] Call me and I will tell you more about that. Membership is free until November 1, 2013.... I will tell you how to join and what some of the benefits are.  Look for information at church [Unity Fellowship Christ Church in Philadelphia] and please read below about the BMN and how to reach me if you lose this e-mail. Phone: 1.215.471.64.94. E-Mail: BlockBoi75@yahoo.Com or BrotherTracy11@GMail.Com
5] Pick up a copy of: ``The Life You Want: Get Motivated, Lose Weight, and Be Happy,'' by Bob Greene, who was a coach for Oprah. This is another life-changing book about diet, food, exercise, addiction and getting on with the healing process for yourself, your friends and your family. You might find it at the Library, but you should buy a copy and read through it as much as you like.  While Bob Greene is White, he has a good deal of advice that can help all people, especially those who formerly called themselves oppressed.

6] Pick up a copy of the thinner Oprah magazine for January 2013.... It is time for a Big Change and you don't have to believe me to know that. Oprah Magazine Writer Martha Beck is writing about it.

Quote:

``May We Help You,''

``Imagine the Choices you'd make if you had no fear--of failing, of losing, of being alone, of disapproval,'' I strongly suggest everyone read this article as soon as possible. It is on Page 43 through 44 and on page 49 of the January 2013 issue of ``O'' Magazine..




XXX




Also, Brothers and Sisters, and my Transgendered friends, We want you to read about sugar from an expert in Oprah Magazine. You don't have to take My word for it. Read pages 81 through 83 all about sugar. It is in the January 2013 issue of Oprah Magazine.... An article by Stephanie Schomer gives what some Doctors think about sugar, how to avoid it, and what the really bad effects are and or can be.....

``The Sweet Low Down,'' gives you the REAL sweet Science on SUGAR....
XXX


``The Garden Variety'' by Katie Arnold-Ratliff with Photography by Marcus Nilsson describes a number of really great recipes that are vegetarian... including ``RED Cabbage with Feta and Mint'' and ``Cali-flower Cake''. Remember that Feta cheese is high in salt, so you might want to use yoguart or light sour cream.  Cheese is a fat and should be avoided at all cost. I know you might like or LOVe cheese, but you can control eating it as I have.....Your body will thank you.

Don't miss this exciting issue and don't forget to subscribe to Oprah Magazine. It is getting rather thin and even she needs our help and support.


Brother Tracy Gibson...

XXX As usual, don't forget to read what Doctor OZ has to say about health in his column as well...


Post Script: By the Way, Oprah was just thrilled by one of my writing colleagues, Sister Ayana Mathis' new book ``The Twelve Tribes of Hattie,'' It is reviewed by Oprah Herself.... She was deeply touched by this novel and very moved. The book isn't even in bookstores as yet. It is about 12 different character's life stories and how their stories interplay with the movement of Blacks from the South to the North in the 1920's and 1930's. [There is even one section on a character named Philadelphia.]


Get the Book. I plan to because I know I will enjoy it. You will to.

don't boot me without reading this here.......

Listen Up, Before You Give Me the Boot...










By Brother Tracy Gibson









Before you give me the boot because I am Same Gender Loving or a Homosexual there are a few things you should know about my history, motivations, goals, aspirations, and my acceptance and or non-acceptance of my so-called ``lifestyle''... I am a Pro-Black Family Man, I may not have children myself {That I know of} or a wife, but I want our children to grow up straight and have families--I DON'T want them to share my lifestyle. I love Black Men AND Black Women.. I love Black children—but only in positive, progressive, holistic, spiritual and appropriate Ways {I pray about this ALL the time, and I mean ALL the time}-- and I have dedicated my life to our black children’s betterment and advancement.









I may well be and definitely am a Homosexual, but that doesn't mean I want others in our community to take on this lifestyle. I want to see our young men and young women grow up to be straight, responsible, caring, loving, respectable, law-abiding, trustworthy, non-drug using {Illegal drugs I mean}, and honest people. If they do turn out to be Homosexual or Same Gender Loving, I don't want to see them ostracized by our community and hated or disrespected, but accepted and given the chance to accomplish what they can for the short time we are all here on this planet earth. So-called Gay people or Homosexuals are a secret weapon in our fight for liberation and a secret Way to help finance our struggle and movement—especially black gay and lesbian and black transgendered people, but they need to be trained, respected and loved and appreciated…. [A TALL order, I know.] {Many of us—as Gay people--have disposable income because we don't have children and the medical bills, food bills and tuition costs that comes along with being parents..} To be ostracized for being Same Gender Loving is just the same as being ostracized for being disabled, Black, left-handed, or into an addictive lifestyle such as having a food addiction or a drug dependency... We all need to not only have more tolerance of ourselves and each other, if we want to be accepted ourselves, we also need to learn to take on the nature of LOVe, Peace, Understanding, Self-Acceptance, Growth, Kindness and Sharing--not the non-virtues of greed, hatred, deceit, repugnance, guilt, and deception.









Yes, Yes, Yes, all this is very hard to discuss because I am right in the heart of the Black community of West Philadelphia and I can be targeted like anyone else. But I have to be honest with the community because I not only want your emotional support, but I also want your financial support and I want to be looked upon as an ethical leader among the Black men of the community.



As you may or may NOT know, I was sexually molested as a black child growing up in West Philadelphia. I was about eight or nine and I was working for a shop-keeper helping him run a general store. One day we were sitting in the back of the store watching ``Gomer Pile,'' –I swear this is true--and he must have been board or something and he decided to put his hands where they didn't belong. I was way too young to know what the heck was going on so I let things occur. After the incident {Which didn't include any penis penetration on either of our parts} I left the store and never went back. Talking about this to you is no joke and it should signal to you the importance of what I'm getting at. Sometimes, for the good of the community, we have to get over embarrassment and talk about the difficult things.









I thought my childhood was a great thing, a great time, but a few years later I started to have the issues of anger and resentment for no apparent reason. I finally talked with my Mom and Dad about the incident when I was about 17. They were shocked and saddened by what had happened, but it was something that, even then, they didn't really want to talk about.









What I'm getting at here is the fact that now I want to help other youth, especially Black youths, who have been ostracized by their families because of the fact that they are Homosexuals. I also want to help Black families deal with talking more directly, openly and clearly to their young men and young women about sex in a positive, honest and forthright way {without fear and embarrassment. So what happened to me doesn't have to happen to them so easily and so quickly without something like therapy and prison time happening to the perpetrator (s). I want more forthright talk and discussion on ALL the issues that face us, not just ones surrounding sex. It is interesting to note that according to some statistics, something like 50 % of Gay or Same Gender Loving men were sexually abused when they were children--often at the hands of a Father, Uncle, Family friend, Employer or someone else like a Step-Father or cousin. This is something we don't want to talk about and something that still gets swept under the rug. In case you haven't noticed lately, there are a lot of lumpy rugs in the Black community. My self-proclaimed job has been to lift those old rugs up and start a cleaning and dusting process that will help us look at not only our sexual abuse issues more clearly, but also other issues such as how we deceive ourselves about our finances; how we abuse ourselves and each other physically and mentally; how we obsess over food, clothing, cars, diamonds and other material items and how these obsessions are NOT healthy mentally, financially or even socially and physically; how we waste millions of dollars each week on the Lotto; and how we have allowed drugs {legal prescriptions and illegal drugs} to take a hold of the ethics in our community and turn our entire community upside down. I want to see us turned right-side up like Farrakhan does, but I DON’T think we have to hate Jewish People or Lesbian and Gay people to get there. {I do think Jewish People have taken advantage of us as black people. They have helped exploit and oppress us, but we can boycott their stores, research and find out what stores they own and stop purchasing the diamonds and gold chains that they are mining in Africa. That is the Way to get at them, not just bad-mouthing them and hating them. That is childish and silly.}









It is time for a fresh start. It is time for fresh discussions. It is time for fresh and new people to get a chance to lead our people and our nation. The Old Guard has largely been manipulated, at a real expense to our community and to our oppressors. Our old guard taught us a lot, but considering the state of our community they have, at least partially, failed Big Time. It is time for a New Look... It is time to bring truth to light, as the Brilliant Reggie Bryant, formerly of WRTI Radio and WURD Radio used to say. There are thousands of men and women in our community who want to bring more truth, understanding and light into how we deal with each other and how we deal with our own oppression. I have dedicated about 35 years of my life to this struggle--the struggle for human rights, civility, Civil Rights, decency, Women's Rights, and even Gay rights {I know some of you don't like that one, but I'm trying to explain why we should take a second look at that instead of allowing the Right Wing to control the debate and listen to them. We should make up our own minds on this subject. } The Black Church, at least some sectors of it, have allowed themselves to be manipulated and moved to right wing actions like chastising Gays and Lesbians, ostracizing gays and lesbians and transgendered people, and even supporting the killing of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgendered people in Africa, which, by the way, is something I deplore and something I plan to fight actively against through presenting positive information that will help to internationally criminalize taking physical action against people who have different lifestyles.









As you know there have been more and more people coming out about their own experiences. There is a former NFL player who is a Homosexual and has been speaking out about his experiences. He is also Black, as I am also. There are other activists like Keith Boykin who have written books on the subject such as ``One More River to Cross: Black and Gay in America,’’ ; and there are films coming out about the subject such as ``Noah's Arc: The Complete First Season,'' {Cable TV Show}, Starring Nick Arquette, Jensen Atwod and Rodney Chester; ``Dirty Laundry,'' starring Rockmond Dunbar, Loretta Devine, and Jenifer Lewis; ``Tongues Untied,'' directed by Marlon Riggs; ``Looking for Langston,'' Starring Ben Ellison, Matthew Baidoo and Akim Mosaji; ``Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom,'' Starring Darryl Stephens and Jensen Atwood, {2008} ``Brother to Brother'' (2005) Starring Anthony Mackie, Larry Gilliard Jr., and Duane Bouttle; ``A Litany For Survival, '' by Lesbian filmmaker Michelle Parkerson, {A play cousin of mine who I know personally}; and ``Adodi--25 Years









Later, The Legacy.. '' a film by filmmaker Rod Patrick Risbrook for which I was interviewed and which is due out next August {2013}..









There are also several books on the subject such as: ``Brother to Brother,'' By Essex Hemphill ``In the Life: A Black Gay Anthology’’ by Joseph Beam {The first such know book in history...} ``Another Country,'' by famed Black writer James Baldwin and ``Sister Outsider,'' by Poet Audry Lord...









When we as Black thinking people see a subject that people are squabbling, fighting, arguing over and that is driving a shaft of hatred and anger through our community, the best thing to do is to take time and read about the subject and NOT take on angry and hateful position that only causes consternation, disgruntlement, anger and more hatred. That leads us nowhere fast. Elections have been lost by us on a National level, like in 2004, when the Republican Party manipulated this ``GAY'' issue and used it like a rope around our necks. Knowledge loosens the rope and lets us breath and reach agreement to work together on what we can and not feel hatred about different sectors of our community.. Reading and research also allows us to understand points of view different from our own.









I have noticed the very obtuse ways in which we are living in North America. We are letting a culture that basically hates us raise our children by letting them freely watch the muck and mire on TV; we are allowing our children to run free and curse us, disrespect us and not attend church or Mosque when we know they will greatly benefit from some constructive, consistent religious experiences; we let our society say we should not allow our parents, grandparents and trusted and respected elders and guardians and other such trusted and respected friends and extended family members and our children experience time together and read together and learn to respect each other. We have lost this part of our African root and our African culture. We can win it back and re-institute such positive cultural and social advantages back into our communities. It will take time, It can happen, but we ALL have to work at it. It may mean replacing some politicians and some churches who are about profits and not people, but if that is so, let it be and let it happen, or get out of the Way. We must and can do better.









The ``Doing Better'' part is where me and my company come in. I am not alone. There are literally thousands of activists who want to help Black people reach more unified, understanding and work together where we can. I hope you will read several other articles in this BLOG:

so you will understand the level of dedication I have shown in helping resolve and work on community problems on a local, statewide, national and international level. Give me and us as part of the Vanguard of the community a chance. Open your mind. Read. Listen to others. Read Progressive writing like: ``The Nation Magazine,'' ``The Progressive,'' ``Mother Jones,'' ``The Crisis,'' and ``The Worker's World Newspaper,'' and ``The Final Call,'' which have liberal and even radical perspectives on this issue of Gays and Gay Rights and other issues. There is also an organization called the Black Radical Congress, which is a Black radical Organization {Which I have worked for, for a brief time in the past} which has a more open and understanding policy in dealing positively with Gay, Lesbian and Same Gender Loving issues and people. I thank you for reading this and I wish you well...THIS ARTICLE IS POSTED on my blog, BUT STILL BEING EDITED!!!

My Time Well Spent With The Homeless.....[edited version]

My Time Well Spent With The Homeless…..


By Brother Tracy Gibson…..



A funny thing happened on my Way to Dinner with my Homeless Friends... I discovered who I am and my own values through the way my so-called friends treated ME. One of my friends told me that Homeless People were OK, but that some of them were ``NASTY.'' That one word cut me worse than a surgeon's knife--deep and long--like the scar on my chest and upper stomach left from a liver biopsy. [Thank GOD it was be-nine] I will carry that scar for the rest of my life, just like I will carry the scar from that one word ``NASTY'--the rest of my life...

I carry the word NASTY for several reasons. I carry it because that is similar to what my Mother said about me when she discovered I was a homosexual. ``Why do you defile your body so?'' she asked me. She might as well have said, ``How can you do those NASTY things with other men?'' This cut me to the quick. I was only in my early 20's when she said this, but I knew I had been irrevocably hurt by those simple words. They especially hurt because they came from my own flesh and blood--my Mother, who I loved dearly and holistically since I was able to first breathe GOD's fresh air. They hurt even more because it was always My Mother who protected me and guarded me against the harsh words of My Father. [I have forgiven Him as totally as I can]. It was like a mutiny on the bounty. It was like pain a thousand times worse than being slapped directly in the face by someone you love dearly--and for seemingly NO GOOD REASON....... I couldn't determine a good reason for the term she used from what I had heard because being a homosexual was all I knew after unsuccessfully chasing girls around in High School and taking a bath up-stream in De-Nile for a few short months during the summer of 1977...

Yes. Maybe I was and am too sensitive. Maybe I need to get over it. And I have tried and I work at healing every day, but We live in a society that hurts to the quick again and again and again in a thousand ways. We have to be more receptive to the LOVe we find in our hearts and in the hearts of others. We have to allow others to come to us with the pain WE have caused them and ask for their forgiveness as Well. I am sure the Brother who used that word ``NASTY'' about Homeless People was not trying to hurt MY feelings, but when you sit and eat and dine with certain people, just about any people, you begin to understand their pain. That is why the Whites kept the luncheonettes ALL White during the early days of the Civil Rights struggles; that is Why the Whites during Apartheid in South Africa kept Blacks away from their all-White establishments. When you share space with the ones you hate you get to see them up close and personal and if you have ANY humanity in you,--and if they have ANY humanity in them--you begin to understand and feel and even like or LOVe. Close proximity is something that can begin to heal wounds. That is if you have ANY humanity in you at all.

Then again, there are some people who are just hateful, but GOD will have HIS way with them as Well, before this crazy experiment called life on earth is through.

I have eaten with these people, my Homeless Brothers and Sisters, about TEN times. I learned something each time. First, Me. Being the bossy type, I would do the whole feeding the Homeless thing a lot differently than they do it where I go for food. I would always ask for at least a few cents from them so they could feel a part of the process--not just feel that something was being given to them. This was the brilliance of what Father Devine did back in the day. Psychologists have proven that people feel more incorporated into what is going on if they are giving something to whatever process they are taking part in. Yet this simple fact gets away from the good-hearted, good-natured people who prepare the food and serve the food to the Homeless People at Arch Street United Methodist Church and the other places I went to as well….. If Homeless People are asked for a simple penny they will feel part of the process. Such money, although it may be low in quantity, is worth more ethically--get that--ethically--than a Millionaire's Dollars from a rich man or rich woman because it comes from the heart and is probably treasured more as it is harder to come by. [There is something about an old woman in the Bible who gave Her last money to either Jesus or the Church and was blessed.] I am sure there must be a Bible quote about the money of the poor being of great value as opposed to the money of the rich being sometimes, valueless ethically--somewhere in the King James Version.

When the poor begin to understand, as some of them already have, that the further they put their hands out for food and a hand out, the more the Oligarchy puts their hand into the poor person's pocket to take away whatever financial and economic blessings they have. The more poor people realize this the better off they become instantly. When they are asked to be a part of their own economic support system, the quicker they, the poor as a community of People, will be able to face the future as proud, courageous People ready to learn how to take their future into their own hand--not as hoards of victims unable to bend, form and mold their own destinies.

At last Blush, when I ate with the Homeless this time the food was a bit better. It didn't seem to be something that was just thrown together. The people who serve the food are ultimately almost always White, but the Homeless are largely Black. There are increasing numbers of Whites as well. But what really gets me is the children of the Homeless. The little boys and little girls who are under 12, some as young as five and six, who are in a matrix, a storm of poverty that is NOT of their making. They make me wonder how on Earth are they getting schooling? Where is their next meal coming from? What about the meal after that? ANd there are thousands of such children. Even with the food stamp program that the Republicans want to cut. Even with the Medicare Cuts coming along as the Wall Street and Madison Avenue Executives take home million dollar bonuses. Where is the fairness? Where is the humanity? Where is GOD in this church that gives food, but gives few solutions as to how to grow from poverty. The poor little faces. The poor little hands and feet…... GOD please help them, or give me something to help them with. I'll get some people together and help them if you help me GOD!!!

The dinner on Sunday March 17th at 6:30 P.M. was chicken in gravy with those fake mashed white mashed potatoes and string beans. The string beans were not canned. This was a good thing and there was even a little salad. There was enough for people to have seconds. This was good because some Homeless People don't know when or where their next meal is coming from. There is a Sistah named Sicarie Rhodes in Philadelphia who has helped feed Homeless People for almost Her entire Adult life. There are other activists; Black; White; Latin; Gay; Straight; Transgendered; Jewish; Christian; Muslim and Orthodox--that help Homeless People as Well. I just have a shortage of food and have to eat there. I write about it as a learning process for me and I share the stories with Others. It is a reality that some people might never know, but it is a reality that many of us shouldn't ever want to know or get to know. . . Still, We Should care. . But the story of the Untouchables in East India is much, much worse. I carry their story with me each and every day as well because I promised some East Indians I would write about them when I was in South Africa for the Conference Against Racism in 2001. I never wrote the article, but their story is also in me and harkens for a word or two, so I am letting them know I have not forgotten them as well. I will have to do research about the untouchables because I can't go to India and see them and be with them. I DON’T HAVE THE MONEY AND I WILL NOT TAKE IT FROM SOURCES THAT ARE ATTATCHED TO UNSAVORY INTERESTS…..…… Research is all I can do and writing ... My activism is largely held down and out by the fear of the people and their indifference and by the government and their Patriot Act I and Patriot Act II and the Other National Security Act and by the haters, but I will not let that stop me.
