I Recieved this During My First Year of College, I am Suprised it's still Making the Rounds Now, and Sad That it Still Rings Just as True Today

I just recieved this email this morning, and can remember recieving the same email back in my freshmen year of College. I don't even know if this guy Dee Lee exists, but it Touched a nerve honestly. Check it out:
POIGNANT!! The sad thing about this article is
that the essence of it is true. The truth hurts. I just hope this sets more Black
people in motion towards making real progress. Chris Rock, a Black comedian, even joked that Blacks don't read.
Help prove them wrong! Read and pass
Please Note: For those of you who heard it, this is
the article Dee Lee was reading this morning on a New York radio station.
those of you who didn't hear it, this is very deep. This is a heavy
piece and a Caucasian wrote it.

We can continue to reap profits from
Blacks without the effort of physical slavery. Look at the current
methods of containment that they use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.
Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon
of containment. A great man once said, 'The best way to hide something
from Black people is to put it in a book.' We now live in the Information
Age. They have gained the opportunity to read any book on any subject
through the efforts of their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are
numerous books readily available at Borders, Barnes &Noble, and, not to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid blueprints to reach economic equality (which should have been their fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all.
GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their disposal. Last year they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas, out of their 450 billion dollars in total yearly income(2.22%).
Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture we care to dream up, no matter how
outlandish, they will buy into it. Being primarily a consumer people, they function
totally by greed. They continually want more, with little thought for saving
or investing. They would rather buy some new sneaker
than invest in starting a business. Some even neglect their children to
have the latest Tommy or FUBU, And they still think that having a Mercedes,
and a big house gives them 'Status' or that they have achieved their Dream.
They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty because their greed holds them back from collectively making better communities.
With the help of BET, and the rest of their black media that often broadcasts destructive images into their own
homes, we will continue to see huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike.
(Tommy Hilfiger has even jeered them, saying he doesn't want their money,
and look at how the fools spend more with him than ever before!). They'll
continue to show off to each other while we build solid communities with the
profits from our businesses that we market to them.
SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the major ways we can continue to contain
them. One of their own, Dubois said that there was an innate division in
their culture. A 'Talented Tenth' he called it. He was correct in his
deduction that there are segments of their culture that has achieved some
'form' of success. However, that segment missed the
fullness of his work. They didn't read that the 'Talented Tenth' was then
responsible to aid The Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life..
Instead, that segment has created another class, a Buppie class that looks
down on their people or aids them in a condescending manner. They will never
achieve what we have.. Their selfishness does not allow them to be able to
work together on any project or endeavor of substance. When they do get
together, their selfishness lets their egos get in the way of their goal Their so-called help organizations seem to only want to promote their name without making any real change in their community.
They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels, and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best speakers, not to the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness? They steadfastly refuse to see that Together Each Achieves More (TEAM). They do not understand that they are no better than each other because of what they own, as a matter of fact,
most of those Buppies are but one or two pay checks away from poverty. All
of which is under the control of our pens in our offices and our rooms.Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to read, continue to buy anything they want, and
keep thinking they are 'helping' their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little other than hold lavish conventions in
our hotels. By the way, don't worry about any of them reading this letter, remember, 'THEY DON'T READ!!!!
