It is so easy to be spiritually invested and entrapped by this Olympic buzz. Please do not get me wrong I am freaking elated to see my people doing big things but I still can’t shake the feeling that this too is an unfortunate ritual.
Black folk everywhere do feel this boost of pride, energy and motivation when they see their people beating all the odds and pushing the limits- and there is nothing would with that. But in the same day you report that Obama’s ratings are higher than Romney?
I feel the elation and joy
I sense a set up.
An unshakable feeling that this indeed is the build up to the big break down.
A breakdown on a physical level though, there is something enduring and resilient about the Black spirit therefore spiritual purges & fortification are necessary for the events that lay ahead.
