Pass the torch
or it will burn out

In Black America we always have to "reinvent the wheel" every generation. This affects our Islamic institutions, ghetto politics & everything in between!
They say the younger generation has no respect for the elders or "ole' heads". And this is true a lot of times (not all the time... but sometimes). But they rarely mention how a lot of our elders disrespect or do slimy stuff in the background to undermine the up and coming youngsters.
So the "torch" rarely gets passed on. The youngins go to war with the elders and take the "torch"! If the youngins lose, the thing dies out with the elder dead with the "torch" still in his hand!
