THE WHEEL SPEAKS 2013 - RIP MADIBA

  1. 1. THE WHEEL SPEAKS 2013 - RIP MADIBA As we collectively reflect internationally on the life of the great Nelson Mandela let us not deny what has to be addressed. A situation that has been truthfully ignored even more so today then ever and that’s race relations. We’re not talking about a brand or marketing something to benefits an individuals attempt to glorify their identity because of a personal plight. We’re simply talking about what’s more often ignored and it’s not right. And the more something seems more beneficial to especially modern day media marketeers the more dangerous a situation it becomes. Because it’s no longer about the betterment for all society it becomes more of an emphasis on certain individuals and of course how can a profit be generated. We’re collectively as a nation lost and in limbo seemingly without a true destination. Simply ask the question that needs to be targeted on an international level and it’s simple “where do we go as a collective people” because it’s become so rivetingly obvious that many of us unbeknownst are being ostracized or exiled in our own communities. This is a great time to speak to our children of all races exactly of what the word Apartheid means. Racism is sadly more so alive than ever and anyone who frowns especially upon verbal acknowledgement of it's existence today is probably guilty in some way or another of it festering. I remember years ago a campaign was created by Sean Combs aka P Diddy where the slogan or catch phrase was "Vote Or Die". Sadly voting does empower racism as well to simply meaning that racist individuals are very well aware the complexity of the world has change. And don't for one second assume that everyone no matter how harmonious the speeches simply will or do represent everyone as a people.
  2. 2. I've seen from a personal level how it can be assume that a vote defines an individual (or someone assume to be a winner). We are all defined by our contributions to society as caring people not by being judgmental or exclusive thinkers. We live in a society that has changed in so many ways but sadly has for the worst when it comes to race relations. And as the years progressive pass those who have led or champion the call to unite us as a collective people are being called home. And as we all still search in limbo for what continues to evasively be non-associated with society in general. Until we learn we'll continue to cry always at the wrong time together as a people RIP MADIBA!
 Respectfully,
