    My advice to men like me

    More from TheTruth53

    If You are of Good Character, Sound Mind, Ambitious, and True to Your Fellow Man or Woman as Well as Self You Will Succeed no Matter Your Ethnicity, or Your Plight!

     
    As a Black man from the "inner-city", using constructive independent thought and making it a point to be ethical, law abiding, showing respect for the rights of other individuals, and holding accountable the individuals/organizations who have contempt for the laws/Constitution are definitely tools to enhance the survival of any family member, as well as, yourself, in the US of A.

    Do your best not to follow in the footsteps of any fool, including any university educated fool!

    Poem: 'if' by rudyard kipling

    "If you can keep your head when all about you

    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

    But make allowance for their doubting too;

    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

    Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,

    Or being hated, don't give way to hating,

    And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

    If you can dream - and not make dreams your master,

    If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;

    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

    And treat those two impostors just the same;

    If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken

    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

    Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

    And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

    If you can make one heap of all your winnings

    And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

    And lose, and start again at your beginnings

    And never breathe a word about your loss;

    If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

    To serve your turn long after they are gone,

    And so hold on when there is nothing in you

    Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

    If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

    Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,

    If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

    If all men count with you, but none too much;

    If you can fill the unforgiving minute

    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,

    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,

    And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!"

    Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936)

    "Employee Lies Punishable, Justices Say" by David Savage, Los Angeles Times, January 22, 1998

    "An employee who is asked about possible wrongdoing has only two responses: Tell the truth or say nothing”. -Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, David Savage, Los Angeles Times, January 22, 1998)

    ....and all public servants are employees of taxpaying citizens, because the taxpayers actually pay the salaries of all public servants who derive his or her income from the taxpayers.
