Be the assertion true, that insanity is the expecting of a different result; while perpetuating the same ideologies and behavior patterns, then insanity is the plight of black Americans, as well as those charged with their education and liberation. This form of insanity is marked by illiteracy, decadent neighborhoods, spiritual ineptitude and social and financial insufficiency. It is the chains that have been passed down from generation to generation irrespective of the Emancipation Proclamation.
It is the reason we gain education, yet not the power to positively alter the circumstances of our people en masse. It is the reason we claim spiritual fortitude, but have no relative impact on our surroundings. It is the reason that you can find entire neighborhoods in black communities where the people who live there own only 0-5% of the businesses and real estate of the community. It is what makes us vulnerable to the designs of spiritual predators and silver tongued politicians. It is the total darkness on which Austin so articulately pens. It is evolving and compounding.
