Great Points from Sister Trojan Pam

@ Timothy,

I agree that there are all forms of power. Black people are not as powerful as whites in the material sense, but we have power that doesn’t require money or guns or material things. It is the power over self, the power over the things we choose to do and not do.

There are so many ways black people can become more powerful.

We can CHOOSE what we say to other people

We can CHOOSE what entertainment we engage in

We can CHOOSE who we share our bodies with

We can CHOOSE what entertainers we support financially

And the list is too long

All the above have to do with either decreasing OR increasing our own self-respect.

And until we gain power over SELF and learn how to weed out the negative things we have the POWER to eliminate, we need not talk about any other kind of power

because it will just be a pipe dream

-Sister Trojan Pam
