Good or bad, black or white, like it or not; Beyonce has accomplished more in 4 minutes to shake up racism in this country then has been done by all of us combined in 50 years! She could have done better, she could have done worse; or she could have sat back and pretended nothing was happening like most everybody else. Formation has not only rocked the foundation of white dominance in America but has set off a ripple effect around the globe surpassing the highest magnitude of an earthquake on the Richter Scale — She gets a 10.0.
In recent history for Black America, the Black Panthers were the first group to get the NATIONAL ATTENTION of White America and that was over 50 years ago. They effectively outraged and injected fear into the class of white supremacy; but after the Black Panthers were all wiped out along with every other Black leader that was a potential threat of that time, white America has utterly ignored Black America since…that is until Beyonce performed live at the super bowl and in less than 5 minutes she GOT THEIR ATTENTION Nationally! If we have learned our lesson the outcome will not be the same but the opportunity to do for self is once again upon us.
I strongly believe that if there is going to be change in the black communities around the world, it will be by the might and determination of those in danger of the greatest losses – The Black Woman. She has shown what one black woman can do; imagine what all Black women can do together under one formation to stop the killings and disrespect.
