  • What is a "community" and what is a" Neighborhood", By Claud Anderson

    "Unfortunately, most Black Americans live in neighborhoods, not communities. A community signifies commitment and the potential for power. Neighborhoods do not. The concept of a neighborhood implies an area that is residential in nature, with lesser wealth, power and status than a community. The majority of Black Americans live in impoverished Black neighborhoods and spend approximately 95 percent of their annual disposable income with people who live outside of their neighborhood. By spending its disposable income in other groups businesses and communities, Black America impoverishes itself and impedes the growth of functional communities."

    To build on to the post!!!!

    Community is the spirit, the guiding light of the tribe, whereby people come together in order to fulfill a specific purpose, to help others fulfill their purpose, and to take care of one another. The goal of the community is to make sure that each member of the community is heard and is properly giving the gifts he has brought to this world.

    Without this giving, the community dies. And without the community, the individual is left without a place where he can contribute. The community is that grounding place where people come and share their gifts and receive from others.

      True consciousness supersedes duality/polarity by thought, projection and intent
      You cannot come from something and not be that something.
