Fish, such as the ones in the photo above, swim in schools as a defense against predators. While they are together, the fish can swim faster and can find food more proficiently.
“Fish evolved to swim in schools to better protect themselves from predators, improve their foraging and swim more efficiently. Unlike shoaling, in which fish merely swim loosely together, schooling requires coordinated body positions and synchronized movement.”Huffington Post
This same technique could be used by Black (melanated) people in America to liberate ourselves from the system of racism white supremacy.
Think of how productive we could be as a people if stopped arguing, debating, hating on each other, fighting with each other, and moved in a seamless harmony like schools of fish.
We can not acquire power as a unit if we think of ourselves as “individuals” separate and apart from the masses of our people.
Perfect example, everyday Black people say “we need another Black Wall Street” yet the millionaires amongst our people never link up and use their plentiful resources to manifest that reality. Why? Because we live in a society that encourages individualism, “it’s all about me, me, me”.
However, if Black people in America functioned as the school of fish does, rich and poor alike would contribute our money and energy towards “another Black Wall Street” or anything else we decide to do at a moment’s notice. Such as how recently the NAFC, a black militia, unified as one collective unit when they exercised their 2nd amendment right in Stone Mountain, Georgia. It was one of the largest gatherings of legally armed Black people America has seen in about 100 years.
If we transferred our emphasis to the collective goals rather than individual differences we wouldn’t need to argue or debate.
It would be universally understood that everyone is making a sacrifice for the greater whole, and the greater whole is what’s most important.
