I’m not big on giving gifts at Christmas, Kwanzaa or anything else. The holiday season has become so distorted that our children now think that Jesus was born at Wal-Mart. I believe in giving gifts of love and upliftment (which kinda makes my kids hate me sometimes). So, in this holiday season, I thought I’d give a gift of love to you. Forgive the sarcasm, but that’s just how I roll. Sometimes, when facing the problems that are so pervasive in our community, we have to laugh to keep from crying (or smacking somebody upside the head).
As we each do our part to make things better for our kids, I remain optimistic that the future is going to be great for black folks. So, here are the gifts I’d like to give black folks for Christmas.
