How Do We Take Back Our Community?

OVERVIEW:

A “community” is a body of people that have common history, common language, common desires and common pains. At one time we were a community…even after the worst days of slavery, even after coming out of severe brutality, deprivation, and being made to believe that we were less than human chattel. But we never did to each other what we’re doing to one another today.

Our community is in a very challenging position…homes are broken, male-female relationships are at an all-time low, marriages are disrespected, children are being put into places with people who may not have their best interest at hand.

Did you know that children from fatherless homes are?

4.6 times more likely to commit suicide

10.8 times more likely to commit rape

6.6 times more likely to drop out of school

15.3 times more likely to end up in prison while a teenager

73 times more likely to be killed by someone that looks just like them

Minister Louis Farrakhan says that “Love is at the root of “Community”—real Community. Social beings, as God created us, have to live according to certain values, norms, rules, regulations that promote peace between each other, so we have to get back to “How do we learn to love?” You cannot love what you don’t know, or what you don’t understand. And the problem is that we are not being taught a sufficient Knowledge of Self that would allow us to love who we are, and how the most high creator created us.
