What do most black people know about trust and loyalty? Basically nothing!
Please allow me to elaborate… All relationships are built on trust and loyalty. Without trust and loyalty, there’s also no unity. As a race, black people have been duped so much by white people in every capacity and aspect of our lives, we never get a chance to experience trust and loyalty. White people have never been loyal to us, and they have violated our trust from the beginning of time. The police are supposed to protect us, but they murder us for no reason. The banks are supposed to help make our lives better by giving us the opportunity to purchase a home and provide security for family through hard work, but they only offer predatory loans, so they can take our house back after a few years. The justice department is supposed to hand out justice in a fair way, but there’s a discrepancy in sentencing and honesty in black arrests and convictions. All those things that white people supposedly claim they provide in a fair and balanced way, is undermined by white privilege. White people have screwed us royally and psychologically to no end. Our demise as a people started with slavery when our forefathers in Africa didn’t stand up to white tyranny. How can a group of people unite when they don’t even trust one another, and have no loyalty to their own race? We can trace this predicament all the way back to slavery when white people pinned black people against each other, by kidnapping different tribes from different regions in Africa who couldn’t communicate with one another, because of language barriers. That’s just one aspect of it. We can also look at the House Negro versus the Field Negro, established perfectly by white people. We still have house Negroes today who feel that Trump is a great president. Kanye is not as much of an anomaly as most of us would like to believe. Sheriff Clarke and many others who aren’t as popular, support Trump privately. This stigma of “blind Negro syndrome” has very much to do with religion as well. However, I don’t want my blog to be about the way white people have masterfully destroyed the black family and the black community. I want us to be aware of the changes we need to make, in order to build trust and loyalty among ourselves.
In personal relationships, we all become vulnerable at one point in time, because we are often meeting a stranger, and most often we have no idea where the stranger is coming from, or his/her intentions. You can’t trust somebody without becoming vulnerable first. In rare cases, many of us have managed to develop loving and amorous relationships with people we’ve known all our lives, who also grew up in the same community with us. That used to be how most couples met. The marriage rate was also much higher then, in the black community. We’d find a girl or a boy in the neighborhood that we start developing a crush on during our pubescent years, and if she/he feels the same way, a relationship usually ensues when we get a little older. The high school sweetheart most often ended up being the wife back then. Those relationships with someone you grew up with, stand a better chance to last a lifetime, because we have been there all along to watch that person develop and grow in a way conducive to the reasons why we want to spend our lifetime with them. Still, it doesn’t mean that loyalty and trust aren’t tested in those relationships either. Too often couples outgrow each other intellectually, professionally and morally. Nowadays, we have even more of a difficult time developing relationships, because we are often attracted to strangers who move from one city to another, or one state to the next, and once they get there, they have the opportunity to create a new identity. By creating a new identity, I don’t mean that someone necessarily has to change his/her name, but there are certain characteristics a person can change about his/herself to attract the opposite sex that they couldn’t do around people who know them well. Most people move around nowadays, so that also gives them an opportunity to start fresh. The neighborhood dog or slut could become wholesome again in a new city. When you take into consideration online dating, there’s always potential for total failure in a relationship. There are so many fake characters on social media, sometimes I laugh when I see someone I know displaying a persona that I have no idea where it came from. It’s social media and everybody gets to become that person they always wanted to be, even when they’re not.
It’s bad enough that white folks created a wedge among us that has kept us from uniting for many centuries, but now we also have to deal sometimes with narcissistic people who can’t live up to the persona they have created, in order to gain someone’s love, trust and loyalty in a relationship. Do people lie in general? Of course! However, there are plenty of people who have become so comfortable with lying, their pathology is accepted and normal to them. Trump lies on a daily basis, and millions of people have accepted his lies. Obama lied as well, and many of the other former presidents lied. From the time I was a kid, there has always been some kind of security threat against the US, but I have yet to see a security breach on US soil, except for the one orchestrated on 9/11. We have invaded many countries under the false pretense of security threat, and millions of innocent people have loss their lives. The US government has been lying to us since the beginning of time. Most Americans tend to rally behind them whenever they decide they want to murder a million people or two, under the false pretense of security threats. Our young men and women, whether black, Asian, Hispanic or white, are just too eager to join the Armed Forces to show their patriotism. They go overseas to risk their lives for a bunch of rich assholes who continue to drive the false narrative of National Security threat. You see, we have grown so much to accept living with the lies that shape our daily lives, we decided to elect the ultimate liar in Trump. Clinton also swore he never had sex with that woman, until Monica Lewinsky gave the world her dress stained with his semen as a memento. It is what it is. Many leaders around the world have been decapitated and assassinated under false pretenses and lies. I’m still baffled by the fact that Americans feel the Middle East is a threat to our country. We created Bin Laden, ISIS, and every other group that this government has told us is a threat to our national security. We funded, armed and trained most of them. Many of us know this, but we don’t stand up to do anything about it. If all this is taking place around us, how in the world are we supposed to build trust in our personal relationships? The failed marriage rate is high in the black community because of lies, mistrust and disloyalty. You noticed I didn’t say divorce rate, right? That’s because there are just as many failed marriages in the black community as there are divorces. Many black couples never divorce, and they accept to live in a dysfunctional environment, sometimes for the sake of their children, and other times for financial reasons. Their children often grow up with those dysfunctions they are exposed to, and manage to normalize them in their own lives as adults. There are thousands of married couples living under the same roof that are dating and sleeping with other people.
Here’s the kicker, though: Black folks tend to associate money with happiness, a better upbringing, honesty, trust and loyalty. That couldn’t be further from the truth. You really believe a successful doctor or lawyer can’t be crooked? How do you explain so many of them behind bars or getting disbarred for doing illegal shit? Morality has nothing to do with intelligence. There are plenty intelligent people out there who lack morals, just as there are plenty high moral people out there who lack intelligence. Black people, though, face the most difficult obstacles when it comes to building trust and loyalty in a relationship. We don’t even trust our own enough to support them in business, clean up our own neighborhood, demand more from the teachers in our schools, and to make sure our politicians are held to the job they are elected to do on our behalf, and that attitude is often carried into our personal relationships. At night, while walking in any black neighborhood, if we see a group of young black people, we are often scared for no damn reason, and are usually looking for escape routes in our minds, way before a confrontation even takes place. We grow suspicious of one another so much, it takes away the energy needed to build trust with each other. Most of us, at one point in our lives, have experienced a broken heart, where someone violated our trust and was disloyal when we didn’t think it was possible. That one experience and situation alone can scar us for the rest of our lives. Some people develop insecurities that usually build them into the most pathological liars. And some people just want to be able to trust and let go. These are all difficult situations for people, but where do we start to develop trust and loyalty in the black community? I’m asking, because I don’t have the answers.
It’s no secret that many of us grew up in a household with single moms, Jesus, grandmothers who raised us, blended families, or families where an evil stepparent almost forced some of us to catch a case. Whether we see our situation as dysfunctional or normal, most people certainly weren’t too happy watching their single mother struggle to make ends meet. No one wanted to be raised by a grandmother who was forced to take on the role of parent for their grandchildren. Even more people harbor ill feelings for not knowing their father, or having a father figure in their lives altogether. Having said this, why do we have such a difficult time righting the wrongs in our lives, so our own children won’t repeat them?
There’s plenty of blame to go around when it comes to black family dysfunction. We can start by putting it all on the colonizers who split the black family during slavery for their own benefit. Black men never developed a sense of commitment to their family, because white people would purposely make certain the family unit was broken, because a strong family unit instilled fear in many white people. There were male slaves who stood up for their “baby mama’s” (they weren’t allowed to marry) and children. Many black men lost their lives while defending their families during slavery, which is why the family was often broken to create detachment. Even more women stood up and risked their lives for the men in their lives. Some even allowed massa to continuously rape them, so they could protect the black men they loved. Anyway, highlighting all of this information makes no difference, because a lot of black people are still waiting for Jesus to come back and save them. It’s as if Jesus pulled the wool over his eyes for 400 years, while black people were in bondage. In addition, black folks see absolutely nothing wrong worshiping the same God as their colonizers. We have so many racist assholes in the Christian church telling the world Trump was god sent, it’s almost unbelievable that 100% of black people in this country have not turned atheist since Trump’s election. If Trump was God sent, according to these racist bastards, you all need to run as far away from Jesus as possible.
Anyway, I say all this to say that we need to do a better job evaluating ourselves, condition, and our situation. Otherwise, we’ll continue to live in a cycle of poverty, dysfunction, destruction, puppetry, foolery, exploitation by others, darkness, and anything else that you can think that would limit the growth of the black family.
Black men know that most of their single mothers struggled to raise them alone, but they grow up repeating the same mistakes that their absent fathers did. They get angry at black women for getting pregnant, and some of them don’t wanna take on the responsibility of being a father to their child, and help support their child’s mother. Black women also know what it’s like for a single woman to raise a child alone, in addition to knowing what it’s like to not have a father in their lives, but yet, many black women grow up to allow themselves to get pregnant by men who don’t want to be with them, or be around for their children. The best thing you have working for you is time. Time always reveals the true character of everyone. Furthermore, a lot of black women are allowing certain men to make them one of many baby mamas without any financial or emotional support for them and their children. You can’t blame anybody but yourself, if you end up being baby mam # 4 or 5. We have to address these issues. It’s not a blame game, it’s reality. We have to look at our lives and see what it is that made it good or bad. We must take the good for what it’s worth, and discard the bad from lingering into our family tree for generations. All bad cycles must be broken, but it takes personal responsibility to change that. We can’t get mad about issues that adversely affect our lives. We have to deal with those issues head on. When a mother tells a young boy, “you’re just like your bum ass father,” that boy will most likely believe his behavior is inherited, and he’ll try very little to try to change that behavior. We must be conscious of the things we say to our kids. No little girl is born “too hot to trot,” but people often refer to little girls as that, because of the possible behavior of their mothers, as opposed to trying to curb that behavior.
There are a lot of bad habits we have not dropped since slavery, and the colonizers capitalize on them, because they enforced those poor values into our forefathers. Christianity was beaten into our forefathers, but most of us can’t seem to shake off Christianity. If the Christian God that loves all people continue to allow white people to do what they’re doing to black people around the world, you need to start questioning your Christian God. It’s just commonsense. Whenever I meet someone I feel who’s intelligent, starts talking about Jesus, I often think it erases everything that I held in high regards about that person, not because they are stupid, but because they are blinded by a God sold to their forefathers years ago by a group of con artists who wanted to dominate them at all cost, which erases their logical sense. We have to put a microscope on the problems that we face in the black community, before we can come up with solutions to for them.
Jesus is not even proactive when it comes to protecting his black followers who pray to him and whispers his name every chance they get. They even call out God in the bedroom, when a man is making them feel proper. It’s all out of habit, though.
No killer should be able to walk into a church to murder 9 people, if almighty God is really mighty and stronger than all forces. 4 little girls should not be killed in a church bombing, if almighty God has all the power that white people have sold you that he has. A Christian reverend like Dr. King should not be shot dead by an assassin’s bullet if his Christian God was proactive and protective. Most of us are raised in a dysfunctional way, with dysfunctional habits, but too many of us are allowing these functions to become the norm. We must question things and start changing our situation. Who benefits from religion? Take a look at religion on a global scale, and ask yourself, how do I benefit from this shit? Check out the Vatican’s net worth and other Christian organizations and pastors, tell me who really benefits from the bullshit they’re selling to you? White people made “Thou shall not kill” one of the 10 commandments in the bible, but these assholes murder people around the world everyday. If you’re okay with hypocrisy, go ahead, continue to pray to their fictitious God. However, if you’re an intelligent human being with a mind of your own, you will question why they have sold you on so many religious bullshit that they don’t even practice themselves.
I’m not saying religion has not salvaged some souls, but that’s only because those people have no personal willpower. No one but you can change you. No book written has the power to change anybody. However, when you start looking within for the answers, it’s very easy to change your path to benefit your self-growth. A drug addict most often lacks willpower and self control, so he believes a therapist can be trained to control his mind to stop him from using drugs. It’s all bullshit, but it works for the weak-minded who lacks willpower. How can somebody else teach you to stop a destructive behavior? How many praying mothers lost their children to gun violence? Jesus couldn’t prevent those murders from happening to begin with, especially when the cops are wrong? When 2 boxers step in the ring and get on their knees to pray before a fight, does Jesus pick the one with the stronger prayer? Hell no! The most skilled fighter always wins, even when he doesn’t pray. How many praying victims we saw step in the ring with Mayweather? As a matter of fact, he beat the living Jesus out of Manny Pacquiao who’s a pastor.
Black folks, we simply need to wake up.
I was reading an article on the new morning show on ESPN called “Get UP,” anchored by Mike Greenberg, Michelle Beadle and Jalen Rose. As I read the article I was annoyed. It stated that Mike Greenberg is earning a 6.5 million dollars a year for co-hosting the show. Michelle Beadle is paid 5 million dollars a year as another host. And Jalen Rose earns less than half of Grennberg’s salary, at 3 million dollars a year, as the third co-host. Having watched the show a couple of times, I can honestly say Jalen’s analysis of anything related to sport is always the most informative and the most entertaining. After all, he was hired to be part of the show, because he had demonstrated his ability to analyze sports. Michelle Beadle is more like a pretty face added for diversity and a woman’s opinion. I can’t, off the top of my head, recall where she came from or what she has done. Greenberg tries to bring that “Je ne sais quois” from his previous show, “Mike and Mike,” but it’s not working for that particular format. The formula seems disastrous, and I doubt the show will last. With the dismal viewership, it’s on its last legs. Still, I’m perturbed by the fact that Jalen Rose accepted such a low salary, compared to his co-host. Based on experience alone, as a former athlete and a sportscaster since his retirement from the NBA, he’s the most qualified for the highest salary. If this isn’t blatant racism, I don’t don’t what is. It doesn’t matter who negotiated his contract, the black guy has been shortchanged, and he’s accepted it. Whether Jalen was just happy to get a job, I have no idea, but moves like these set the precedence for white companies to continue to exploit black talent. I wasn’t satisfied researching just one particular show, so I dug a little deeper, and went to research the salaries of the talent on a few more shows on television, to see if there was a huge discrepancy between white and black employees’ salaries. Upon further investigation, I noticed, Lester Holt, the host of NBC’s evening news, who replaced disgraced journalist, “Lying Brian” Williams, is actually earning less than half the salary Williams earned, doing the exact same job. Williams earned 10 million dollars a year as the anchor of NBC’s evening news, while Lester Holt is only paid 4.5 million dollars a year. It’s been 3 years since Williams’ departure/termination from the show, and NBC is still refusing to pay Lester Holt a just salary. Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles are now discussing how they can see this form of Racism from NBC, while the execs at NBC who feel protected by white supremacy, see nothing wrong with it. I know the federal employment laws prohibit salary discrimination based on race gender and age, but how come Holt has not hired an attorney to fight NBC on this? It’s just another case of a black man happy that a white company gave him a high salaried job, even though he’s slighted. Here’s another atrocious case that I found; Hoda Kobt has been the host of NBC’s Today Show since sexual predator and deviant, Matt Lauer, was fired by NBC. Hoda Kobt is paid a salary of 7 million dollars a year for her new position as the lead anchor of the morning show. However, she’s being slighted to the tune of 18 million dollars a year, compared to the 25 million dollars a year despicable misogynist Lauer earned. Isn’t NBC being sexist, racist and supported misogyny all at the same time?
I say all this to say, too many black people aren’t willing to fight the system to change things for their successor. As the predecessors for the next generation, they are leaving the door wide open for young black professionals to continue to be exploited by the racist white system. The examples I just gave are of people who earn millions of dollars, so they definitely have the means to file lawsuits for discrimination against their employer. Imagine the number of black engineers, accountants, managers, and other professional black people with regular salaries that are shortchanged in the business world everyday? I’m sure many of them aren’t saying anything either, because their survival is dependent on the decision these white people make on their behalf, regarding how much they should earn and how much their self-esteem and talent is worth, in spite of their education and experience in their fields. Now, I haven’t even compared the salaries of some of the garbage white athletes who can’t even compete at a professional level, who earn more money than the black athletes whose skill levels far exceed what a white athlete couldn’t even achieve while on steroids. These black people who get exploited often accept their fate, without realizing the impact it’s going to have on the generation coming up behind them. Believe it or not, I went through that crap as well before I started my own business. However, I did not take it lying down. I knew my rights, my worth, my ability, my experience, my level of education, and what I deserved. At the end of the day, I realized I was worth a lot more working for myself, than some racist organization who wanted to exploit my skills and talent. I’m not advocating that everyone should do what I did, but I am saying that these cowardice black people should pursue every legal avenue possible to make sure the playing fields are leveled for the next generation of up-and coming black professionals. When you sit idly by and do nothing about a situation that affects your group in society, you might as well have the whip in your hand, and take on the role of overseer for the slave master who handpicked you for your position that you are satisfied with, even though you are worth way more than they’re paying you.
This is not an attack on black professionals, but I’m sounding the alarm for their lack of action to change a situation where they are protected by existing laws, and have the means to go to battle with these companies to remedy a racist practice that will affect the next generation in the worse way. The issues that black people face on so many levels are insurmountable, but if we have so many black folks adjusting to the abuse, and growing content with the crumbs that are provided to them, our great grandchildren will be complaining about the same things, just as we are still complaining about the same issues brought to the forefront by Frederick Douglas, James Baldwin, Malcolm X, Dr. King, W. E.B. DuBois, Richard Wright, Heuy Newton, Eldrige Cleaver, Marcus Garvey, Toussaint L’Ouverture and so many other black leaders. These people put their lives and careers on the line to make things better for us, but now black people have grown so comfortable in their marginalized position by white people, they see no need to fight for the African race anymore.
As the white imperialists battle for supreme power among them around the world, very little attention or acknowledgement is given to the existence of black people in Africa, the US, Brazil and the Caribbean. Africa is not even offered a seat at the table, because Africans decided long ago it wasn’t worth it to fight white people for validation as their equal. Many of us have no choice but to claim the country or region where our forefathers were enslaved. As I place my magnifying glass on the insurmountable issues black people are facing worldwide, I’m realizing how exhausting it is to be black, but it’s especially exhausting, when you’re black and conscious. At the world summit, African leaders present are just a mere gesture from the imperialists to show the world Africa is taken into consideration. There’s no military might in any country in Africa. Africans can’t defend themselves against Nuclear bombs. They don’t even have the right to have a strong army, much less develop Nuclear weapon to defend their children against white aggression. It’s not as if we don’t know their history toward the continent and black people. The entire continent has been robbed at ‘Whitepoint,” meaning the white vultures from all over the world colluded to squander the resources of Africa, and the African people have to live with the perils of their cowardice and weak leaders who didn’t risk their lives to chase out these vultures. White people are completely against black prosperity anywhere in the world. You see, there can’t be a positive example of black prosperity anywhere in the world, because it will debunk white supremacy. The imperialists have placed more sanctions against countries in Africa than anywhere else. For every step that Africans make towards economic independence, the imperialists are there to remind them not to move too fast. Rwanda’s president decided he was no longer going to accept reject clothing from H&M, in order help develop the country’s own textile industry, but the US stepped in with threats of sanctions against the country. Some of you may not know the purpose of sanctions, but they are put in place to cripple a country’s economy and destroy their society. Can you imagine the nerves of these racist assholes? It’s reminiscent of that scene in a gangster movie that I saw, where the character “Dutch,” a white man, was forcing his black flunkie to bring home a sandwich to his family that he had taken a bite into, and didn’t want to finish, and had the nerve to question the man’s character and pride for refusing to wrap up the half bitten sandwich to take home to his family. The scraps were good enough for that black man’s family, just as the scraps from US companies should be good enough for Africa. That’s just one example of America bullying another country. You can research the other countries that are forced to accept US trash. Yes, they are black, too.
In the US we try to lean on our political leaders for change, but once elected, they become a mockery of our existence, because they bamboozle us into using the voice we think we have, only for them to take it away when our issues come up for discussion. Bill Clinton is the perfect example of a con man who destroyed the black community with their own votes. The rise of white people to power and the insignificance of black people and black lives around the world, has everything to do with black people accepting the fate that white people have forced upon them. Everyday we wake up satisfied and content with our position in life, because it takes too much courage, dedication, hard work, determination and valor to fight for something better. As long as the Negro is able to pay his rent, own a car, and buy food, there’s no greater satisfaction in life. If his white employer makes him believe he’s being paid handsomely for doing a good job, he’ll put his life on the line for that white employer. Since we haven’t been able to beat them since 1804(Haitian Revolution and independence), we’ve been trying to join them. Joining them, though, has been very costly. Subjugation, exploitation, marginalization, and oppression are just a few of the words I can find to describe the state of black people, since the assimilation into white society has been on trial. However, they’re not even paying attention to the knocks at the door. Black folks don’t give a shit about the pain of white people. As a matter of fact, they use our pain and plight to their own benefit. Again, please reference Bill Clinton and his wife to understand this shit! The black church rolls it’s welcoming mat to many candidates during national and local elections, because they have the power to help elect all types of politicians who don’t mind kissing the elderly, the sick and the babies. Those same black churches aren’t talking black people into standing up for themselves against tyranny and injustice. Politicians come to the black congregation to get elected. Pastors go to the black congregation to ask for financial assistance when they need something, in addition to collecting tithes every Sunday. However, when the black congregation needs anything, the pastor ask them to turn to Jesus. If that makes sense to you, you’re probably a Christian. Sometimes I get tired of living in a world where I’m silently being told I better know my place in society. An entire continent is being told this every day. Who took out the hearts of the last African warriors? We didn’t get the benefit of learning what it’s like to be a warrior, because these white imperialists made cowards out of many of our forefathers. We live life at their mercy, and too many black people are fine with that.
Dependence is synonymous with white control and domination, but black people seem to have this fear of independence, no matter how prudent it is for us to be self-reliant. We do everything to help ourselves stay dependent on white people. The other day I walked by H & M. It was full of black people. I drove by a Starbucks, black folks were chilling under the canopy, as if two brothers weren’t arrested for no reason at Starbucks just a few weeks ago. Nordstrom Rack continues to rake in the black dollar, even though a young black kid shopping for prom was profiled, harassed and arrested for no reason there. And then we have the most garbage breakfast food entity in the world, Waffle House, I saw black people sitting at the tables and counter, eating that high cholesterol bullshit they shouldn’t eat, even though a sister was just humiliated and arrested by scumbag cowards with badges for no reason there, in addition to a young man who took his sister to the prom who got pummeled by another scumbag in blue. We have a long list of places that we shouldn’t patronize, but somehow we can’t seem to overcome this mental disability, where we play a major role in our exploitation and possible demise. One more thing: are we still watching the NFL? Why? When those racist assholes couldn’t come up with a viable solution to show compassion for a cause that involves 70% of their millionaire slaves, I mean players, they decided to place the culpability on the players, by threatening to assess a 15 yard penalty on any team where the players kneel for the anthem. I say all the black players on every team should kneel before each game, but that’s wishful thinking. Black people only show valor against other blacks. They are cowards to the umpteenth power when dealing with white folks. White supremacy seems to have all the solutions to stay supreme. Black inferiority seem to follow all the guidelines to stay inferior. Yeah, some of you are gonna be mad as hell at my last statement, but go stand in front of your mirror and ask yourselves, “Am I doing everything in my power to make sure I’m not enriching white supremacy?” Here’s a list of questions I have for you: Do you shop at stores where you are followed for no reason? Do you continue to support businesses where black people have had to deal with racism and racial profiling? When was the last time you went out of your way to support a black business? Are you quick to place the blame on black people because of their behavior or what they’re wearing when they fall victim to injustice? Do you find reasons to insult black men/women in your attempt to try to elevate another race? I’m just trying to ask a few questions, so I can help highlight some of the destructive behavior that some of us display daily. We watch our loved ones get shot and killed, arrested and humiliated, beaten and degraded, but we’ve done nothing to change their behavior toward us. Marching hasn’t worked since the 60’s. Economically, though, we have grown too accustomed to the convenience of white supremacy to even think about an economic boycott. I’m just saying!
Black people are the only group of people who can go from wanting to be in Wakanda, and dreaming about a place like Wakanda, the last couple of months, to wanting to be at Buckingham palace this past week. Wakanda was just a temporary reprieve. I see we’ve moved on. As inspiring some of you claim that movie was, you did absolutely nothing to change yourself after watching Black Panther. Disney is laughing all the way to the bank, though. We have gotten so used to the idea of wanting to be closer to our exploiters, we were just waiting for an opportunity to start clapping again for massa, even if his entire family enriched him and made him a prince by colonizing our forefathers in their homeland. Are we significant enough to take the necessary steps to establish the changes that we seek as a people? Maybe we’re just comfortable being insignificant? Is it the threat of death at the hands of our oppressor that stands in the way of us revolting? Sanctions and the threat of annihilation seem to work well against African countries. My generation has witnessed the assassination of many leaders here and abroad at the hands of the CIA and US government, maybe that’s what it is…
Black people made the decision to allow white supremacy, white dominance, and white privilege to flourish around the world a long time ago. By Black people, I mean the African race. However, black people today, continue to follow those same paths, by continuing to strengthen white supremacy daily. I will elaborate on this a little more. First, let me preface this by saying that deflecting the real issues faced by our race, is not going to magically provide a solution to our problems. How has the African race allowed white supremacy and white privilege to flourish? Well, let’s go back to the 1770’s through 1804 when the Haitians made the choice to live as free men or die. Many of you got pissed at Kanye for saying “Slavery was a choice.” Black people are emotional like that. Though Kanye never took the time to explain his position, so many black people are ignorant to facts, they all jumped on the bandwagon to destroy Kanye without researching the facts related to his statement. This blog is not about Kanye, though, it’s about the cowardice role that African leaders played in the demise, subjugation, enslavement and the marginalization of black people worldwide. Even the black intellectual and black elite are not aware enough of history to understand the capacity in which black people have allowed white supremacy to thrive around the world. In the 1770’s on a tiny island called Hispaniola, known as modern day Haiti and the Dominican Republic, a group of slaves rose up and decided they no longer wanted to endure slavery. Without much military training and military might, but with the heart of lions, these African slaves put their lives on the line, to not only end slavery on the island of Hispaniola, but to liberate black people worldwide. Napoleon’s army was viewed as the mightiest army around the world at the time, as this little racist midget set out to conquer territories for France. Haiti also helped many South American countries to liberate themselves from the grips of the Spaniards. Having said that, why did the Haitians fight alone for their independence? Why didn’t the leaders in Africa send African troops to Haiti to help assist their cause? In addition, why didn’t those leaders in Africa see Haiti as an example to stand up against colonization and imperialism in their own homeland? The white plan was laid out, and the African leaders did absolutely nothing to change the course of their history. They didn’t band together to destroy the roots of white supremacy in Africa. They allowed white supremacy to outsmart them. South Africa, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, and many other countries in Africa are controlled and run by the white minority economically. For years, they experienced apartheid, and had to appeal to the international community, which is primarily made up of white supremacist countries, to ask for their assistance to help put an end to apartheid. The US government was a staunch supporter of apartheid in South Africa. We have nobody but ourselves to blame for that. Napoleon and his army could not conquer so many regions of Africa, if African leaders saw Haiti as an example of black supremacy. Some of you are going to dissect this blog by presenting bullshit arguments about the strength of white supremacy, and how we were powerless when it came to our enslavement. To that, I say “bullshit!” Haitians didn’t manufacture arms, but they were tired of living in bondage, and they didn’t want their children to have to go through what they went through, so they stood up and fought back under the common goal of “Liberty or death!” Imagine if all the Africans had stood up with Haiti at the time? They could’ve liberated every African nation from white tyranny. Haiti will always be the mother of black liberation. Without the Haitian Revolution, slavery would have lasted for another century or more in the United States. The sacrifices the Haitians made were on behalf of all black people, but the white world want you to forget about their great contribution to humanity. Let’s not forget that Haitians also helped the US gain their independence from the British and the French. White supremacy has flourished so much, we are at the point where we’re forced into a powerless position, and we believe we’ll never be able to overcome white domination and white control around the world. That’s exactly how white people wanted it, and African leaders allowed it to happen. Now, let’s fast forward to present time: Black people of our modern time have made absolutely no sacrifices for the future black generation. By that, I mean we have grown attached so much to the conveniences provided by white supremacy, we don’t even see the role we play in strengthening white supremacy. White supremacy is all around us, and we’re empowering them everyday. We continue to shop in stores where we are followed like criminals, without giving a second thought to our contribution to the bottom line of the stores. In addition, we often end up buying items from stores where we are profiled, just to prove to them we can afford what they believe we might be stealing. How does that philosophy work to our advantage? If our money goes to a racist store with a history of profiling black shoppers, how does spending our money in that establishment help our cause in society? We can’t even organize a boycott to stand with our brothers Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid against the NFL. Everywhere we turn, white supremacy seems to be thriving. Most black cops claim they join the police force to make a difference, to give black people a voice. However, those same black cops often stay silent when they witness white officers committing heinous crimes and abusing their badge against black people. Also, in many cases, we have black police officers who have adopted the same racist mentality from white cops, and apply them in the black community. Where is our advantage in all this? If you’re a trained cop with a gun, and you’re keeping silent about injustice you witness from your fellow officers because you’re afraid for your life, how are the regular black civilians supposed to feel in the presence of law enforcement? Do you know how many David Clarkes are out there? This brother is so far gone, I think he’s just waiting to raise enough money to whiten his skin. These dangerous people are worse than white supremacy itself, because they lend credence to imperialism and racism. There’s a long list of things that we do that help white supremacy thrive, but we are so hungry for acceptance and inclusion, black independence is a foregone conclusion to many of us. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and many other social media sites, are all white-owned, and we are often suspended on these sites for displaying our black pride, and encouraging black people to fight social injustice and white supremacy. Instead of creating our own social media sites, we learn to live within the constraints and restraints that these white people have imposed on us. We are too terrified to develop our own social media sites, even though we have over 2 billion black people worldwide that we can potentially serve on these sites. Our participation on these social media sites contributes to the value of these entities, and we continue to help make billionaires out of a group of people whose primary goal is to keep us marginalized. We rely on the Huffington Post, The Root, NBC Black, Atlanta Black Star, and many other white-owned news outlets, as reliable sources for black news and education, without understanding how they are appropriating our plight to become stronger, more powerful and rich. We need to wake up and figure out a way to get away from all this bullshit. White people aren’t getting tired any time soon of exploiting us. Don’t be fooled by a system that allows a sprinkle of black people to reach a pinnacle of success that will convince you that racism has vanished. The system cannot work without allowing a few cracks through the door. Please analyze everything!
We live in a society that makes normal people with normal accomplishments feel like they’re nothing. Everybody wants to be front and center for attention for the most mind boggling nothingness they can display to the world. It all started with the Kardashians becoming famous for having done absolutely nothing in the world, and for having absolutely no talent worthy of acknowledgement. Unless, of course, you believe having sex with a C list celebrity on video has become the way to fame for the common person. We have shifted from being private citizens to forcing ourselves to become as public as possible for the attention. From the time we wake up in the morning, the world needs to know what kind of toothpaste we use, if we use any at all; what kind of soap we shower with, if we practice good hygiene; which brand of toilet paper we use to wipe our ass, if we aren’t too filthy to take the time to wipe our asses properly. Some people are so desperate for attention, they often neglect the filth captured in the background of their picture. And sometimes the filth is sitting in the foreground right in front of them, but they’re so occupied with their selfie, they don’t even realize that they’re displaying to the world how filthy they are. Clean your goddamn bathroom, and stop stepping over piles of dirty ass clothes in your room, just so you can take a selfie for the world to see your filthy ass. Social media has forced us to move away from being normal human beings. Nobody really gives a shit that you’re eating a 3 course meal at a 5 star and sometimes zero star restaurant. Nobody but you care about the reaction you’re gonna get from people after getting dressed for an outing. We have all fallen into the habit of displaying to the world our every move, while the world now cares nothing about humanity. What the fuck is an Instagram model anyway? Any pretty girl who throws on some salacious outfit now refers to herself as an Instagram model, because 10,000 or more thirsty people are clapping for her. Other than buying and paying for your own clothing, how the fuck are you earning a paycheck as a model? Are you sponsored by the big companies to wear their clothing? Every kid now wants to to be a sensation without having anything for us to sensationalize. Some people will go to extreme measures to create a sensation for the benefit of attention. Being normal is the new stupid!
I remember when people used to respect the hard working parents who brought home the bacon after working long hours at a respectable job. I remember when doctors, lawyers, teachers, accountants, nurses and other professionals were held in high regards. I remember when kids used to aspire to become a great lawyer, doctor, nurse, teacher and other worthy professions. Nowadays, every kid is looking to social media to make it big. 50% of the black male population are aspiring rappers, even though too many of them have a 3rd grade level vocabulary and lack of understanding of general subjects. We tend to build up those people that we hardly know, while tearing down those people that are accessible and close to us. Our narcissistic values rely on the approval of strangers, and because of it, we tend to support the efforts of strangers more than we support our own. If the neighbor down the street from us decides to launch a clothing line, we’ll most likely clown him for his efforts. However, when a celebrity we have never met decides to go on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to post about the launching of their next venture, we want to be the first one to share it and help it spread like wildfire. We don’t do the same for the people building businesses in the community. We don’t support the people from our community who are putting the effort into changing the lives of our people daily. I really don’t give a shit if Gucci or any other high end fashion designer is launching a new line of clothing. I care more about the person in my neighborhood opening a bookstore, or another entity that will serve the community to make it better. We promote racist brands that want to destroy us on a daily basis, instead of standing behind the brands created by our own people. Narcissistic behavior has much to do with the vanities of the world, and black people are all caught up in it. You can’t be caught with things that will bring about your financial demise. Don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting the finer things in life, but we should not allow that to become the very air we breathe every minute of the day. In addition, we need to start acting our wage! Enjoying the fruit of our labor is only just and right, but we shouldn’t push our lifestyle on other people, and belittle those who can’t afford to keep up with the Joneses, or the fake lifestyle we’re struggling to maintain.
We have developed this sense of entitlement, where we believe we should own things that we can’t even afford. Our children want to wear $200.00 sneakers at 10 years old, while our light bill is delinquent. We are living backwards! This all has to do with narcissism. We’re raising a bunch of narcissistic children who will grow up to believe they are entitled to shit that they can’t even afford. President Trump cares more about ratings than being president, because as a narcissist, he needs to feel that he has an impact on everything around him. His behavior is no different than the normal folk who constantly seek the approval and adoration of others online. For some reason, we believe impacting the daily lives of others with our clothing, food, homes, cars, and anything else we own, by posting pictures, will remove our insecurities. Anybody online can become whatever they want. It’s ego-driven and it has no purpose.
First of all, we must take a look at who’s birthing these boys who grow up to become despicable men. Whether we’re talking about Harvey Weinstein, Trump, Matt Lauer, or any of the other white sexual deviants in society, white women must shoulder the blame for raising these sick bastards, and continue to support them as adults. I can applaud and stand by the “#metoo” movement, which was started by a black woman, but white women have managed to empower these sick demented white men by remaining silent, and allowing these predators to prey on more victims. It’s not really about when they’re ready to come out, but more about what they can get until they are in a comfortable enough position to come out. Meanwhile, more victims are preyed upon, as some of these white women build their careers, and allowing these white sexual predators to become invincible with the judicial system. Predators understand who they have to forge relationships with, to remain powerful. When your inner circle is made up of judges and politicians, it’s very easy for a person to believe he’s untouchable. Most of America’s political influence can be bought, and even judges have their price, so a predator relies on those relationship to maintain his predatory behavior. White women allow that behavior to be refined and mature when they keep quiet long enough to get out from under the predator. Practice makes perfect, so they say! When a sexual assault victim chooses to remain silent because of career, it basically means you don’t care about the other women coming behind you in the same career path, who also have to deal with the predators who abused you. Harvey Weinstein’s list of victim is way too long, and took too much time to build. Most of the women on his list are white women who became successful in their own right, while pursuing their acting careers in Hollywood. Their path to success was through Weinstein, but why didn’t they stop him in his track? They continued to empower a rapist, because the rapist was the path to their success. These sexual deviants are made stronger, because so many women choose their careers over their pain. We all know that white men have a history of raping men, women and children across the globe, and some judges have managed to normalize that behavior by handing out light sentences to these predators. Some of the most influential men in America have been accused of rape. Many of them have raped children and served less than 3 years in prison for their heinous acts. We can go all the way back to Africa to dissect the dichotomy of rape, as it was brought to the continent by the white man. If Africans were “naked” or wore very little clothing around one another and there was no rape issue, where was that behavior learned? Many black women committed suicide to avoid being raped by these sick bastards during the voyage from Africa. The raping of black women didn’t start on US soil. Many African women never set foot on their slave ships, because they opted to take their own lives, instead of allowing a white man to rape them. Even more committed to being forcibly raped for the protection of their children and their husbands. White men see rape as a power trip, and they even sodomize men, because it gives their weak asses a sense of strength, since they know they are truly the weaklings of the world physically.
I’m sure Weinstein’s circle is full of rapists, because white men like to boast about their deviant acts. Whenever someone condones the act of rape, they might as well be a rapist themselves. White people even want to go as far as romanticizing the relationship between Thomas Jefferson and his rape victim, Sally Hemings. It was never a romantic relationship, it was simply an arrangement for rape sessions at Jefferson’s will. He was a rapist, because he never recognized any of the children that Hemings bore for him. Jefferson was no different than Harvey Weinstein. He abused his power and took advantage of another human being, because he knew there were no consequences to his actions. Weinstein’s actions, however, remained inconsequential, because his victims chose to remain silent, in order to attain success in their field of acting. Sarah Hemings and many other black women had no choice. White men ran rampant, raping every back woman they could, without without any repercussion for their action. This behavior has carried over for many centuries now, but not once did these white women stand up against their husbands, to make sure they were not raising a bunch of rapists who would unfurl on society. Certain despicable behaviors are passed on through DNA, and we know that there aren’t anybody with pure African blood left in the western world. In addition, certain behaviors in society are learned and practiced because of exposure. Since white people like to claim that Africans walked around naked in the jungle, let me point out that rape was never an issue prior to the white man’s presence in Africa. Sexual predators have been normalized to the point where the White House is occupied by serial sexual predator #1. In addition, these sick bastards are trying to also normalize pedophilia. What kind of sick world are we living in? Who’s birthing and raising these psychopaths? Again, we need to go to the root of the problem, because these men didn’t birth themselves. White women aren’t raising white men to respect anybody in society. They raise them to feel they are superior to everybody, including their own mamas. We need a feminst movement because white women aren’t doing their jobs as mothers. Unfortunately, some black women are following suit as well. Certain behavioral issues should be tackled in the home, but white women aren’t tackling rape and other deviant behaviors, as it relates to their sons. I can’t speak for the fathers, because they were most likely raised without respect for women, so they can’t pass on to their sons what they don’t know. However, we must hold white women responsible for the despicable behavior of the white men they raise. You have to start teaching your sons to respect you and other women!
If the first woman who was raped by Weinstein went to the authorities right after it happened, he would’ve been stopped in his track, and he wouldn’t have been able to continue to go on a raping rampage where hundreds of women are victimized. In addition, a network of rapists wouldnt’ have been able to get off the ground, because the first rapist would have been exposed soon enough. Again, we can all act like these women are victims without responsibilities if we want to, but they are, and were, responsible to protect the young up-and-coming actresses from predators like Weinstein. Let’s shine the light on the entire white society, not just the portion where we want to show compassion to the victims, because they were silenced by a powerful magnate. In the greater context of history, Trump is not the first man to have had abused women sexually. Thomas Jefferson was also not the first president to repeatedly rape his slaves. Sally Hemings is the only recorded case we know about, but I’m certain there were plenty others. Stop accepting the history white people like to dictate to us. Look at history in its entirety, in order for us to understand how to remedy their sick behavior.
