Much of the pain black people claim they feel is the result of being dependent on the group. That’s why you often hear them wanting to be king, queen, leader, ironically of the group.
Cut those cords. The group is responsible for holding you down, out and back.
Survival of the group identity, not your own personal identity, is the reason the leaders of the group corral you, herd you, enslave you as their’s to own, abuse, exploit. The goal of the group is to make you act in the best interests of the group, not in your best interest.

The dangers of that dynamic were expressed well by Penney: “If people are spooked or deterred from learning about important policy matters like terrorism and national security, this is a real threat to proper democratic debate.”…
