Food for Thought: “Elevate!”

elevate (verb) definition from Dictionary.com:

1. to move or raise to a higher place or position;

2. lift up, to raise to a higher state, rank, or office; exalt, promote;

3. to raise to a higher intellectual or spiritual level

 

From the Melanated Man:

I know a woman. She is 94 years old, the matriarch of her family. Beautiful family. She would tell her sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters, and even great-grandsons and granddaughters that they should “elevate” themselves. I was thinking the other day how unique of encouragement that is to tell your loved ones. That a powerful statement! But I do have a couple questions:

-How can one person elevate themselves when they eat so much dead waste?

-How can a person elevate when their emotions and behavioral patterns mimic the dead mammals (MEAT) they partake of at the dinner table daily?

-How can a person elevate when they only use 10% of their brain (or so we have been told?)

-How can a person, who is black (melanated), think of elevating themselves when their spirituality is being abused by “religion?”

Just some food for thought…
