I DARE YOU BROTHERS & SISTERS I DARE YOU

Remember when they dared you? 

I dare you to open a book and read that book every day

I dare you to go beyond calling words to comprehending them every day 

I dare you to grow intellectually every day 

I dare you to absorb something new every day 

I dare you to attempt to utilize that magnificent machine between your ears every day

I dare you to act and think critically every day

I dare you to think beyond the boundaries or situations that you feel chain you're at least for 60 seconds every day

I dare you to truly love your black brother, your black brother’s brother every day

I dare you to attempt to be just a little better today than you were yesterday

I dare you to add just one new word today that could enrich your tomorrow

I dare you to allow yourself just 300 seconds to enrich your environmental conditions every day

I dare you to think beyond the fantasies of Olivia Pope 

I dare you to think beyond the fantasies of Ghost

I dare you to think beyond the irrelevancies of Hip Hop Atlanta

I dare you to think beyond the scripts of media televised living to building true thoughts of improving your personal living

I dare you to spend at least 1O0 dollars a month building your black community rather than enriching someone else’s community

I dare you to learn the historical importance of black men and women beyond Martin, Malcolm, DuBois, and Washington

I dare you to seek an answer to a question that you don't know and share that knowledge with someone else

I truly dare you to not be proud of that special someone who has struggled but refuses to give in or give up

That someone is YOU

I dare you to dream

I dare you to deny someone you love their dream

I dare you not to believe in the impossible when our ancestors vanquished the impossible daily

I dare you to think beyond the so-called box scores to the new-day life scores 

I dare you. I dare you, I D double dare you

I dare you not to believe that some form of Wakanda exists in every one of us

Don't dare us because we'll do it!
