Seed Planter: Greetings, Dr. Welsing I was watching the White Supremacy programming device commonly known as the tellievision. The program “Hip Hop and LA Riots” seemed like it was used as a tool to program and provoke certain behaviors in victims of racism, possibly resulting in an uprising, once Zimmerman walks. Did you notice this?
Dr. Welsing: Yes, this is exactly why black people must understand what the system is and how it works. We already know Zimmerman is going to walk. We know this. Why burn down the stores in our own neighborhoods? We should be saying to ourselves this is proof. Proof of the existence of the system of Racism/White Supremacy. No more denying it. It’s time to respect ourselves, and modify our current behaviors in order to produce a system of Justice.
Seed Planter: I agree, thank you. I appreciate your efforts, you have helped me see what it is that I’m looking at everyday.
