I want this to go viral
One of many slanderous untruths corporate media likes to portray about Black America. Please reblog.
I asked my mom if she thought more college-aged black men were in college or in jail and she responded, “Oh, definitely in jail.” I read her these stats and she was surprised. This is a good campaign.
When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
