Hi Bob, It was good speaking to you today, some of my concerns are race relations and the state of the world today I don’t know where or how to begin. I want to build some sort of a relationship with you.I want to give people something to think about, most of the time I speak if not all the time I speak. I am an african american man. I grew up in the city of Compton ca .I watched all of history from the 60’s to date just to analyze todays race relations. I will not blame neither group for the problems we face as a nation of god fearing people. it’s a game that most people don;t understand because we are not paying attention to , Lets say colors Red & Blue most of us Identify that as Republican and Democratic , ( Crips & Bloods ) whats the difference one is a gang and the other is a political party, you choose colors to Identify your team mates .Lets play chess colors are Black & white one good one bad which side are you on . lets take the plug on the wall you have three prongs , on the right is power on the left is common on the bottom is ground. lets rename it on the right lets call that god on the left lets call that the common man on the bottom lets call that the devil. common & power can play together common &ground can play together But power & ground can;t Because they are both Kings in the game of Life, (Chess) what team are you on, food for thought.? Lot more to talk about I Look forward to a response. Thanks
