The Mind Of A Slave
One of the most exhilarating feelings in the world, is when you’re able to tell a racist piece shit white boss, “Take your job and shove it up your ass. I fucking quit!” Not many people get to do that in their lifetime, but you should try it, though. That’s a feeling of freedom that I will never forget. I say all this to highlight how impactful a statement it would be, if all the Dallas Cowboys players were to get on that field and kneel together, leaving Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliot, and racist ass Jerry Jones and his son to fall on their racist ass faces in front of the world on opening day. It’s only wishful thinking on my part, because the plantation owner seems to have managed to make these players believe he has the upper hand in this situation. The black players are completely unaware of the fact that there is no Dallas Cowboys without them. Jerry Jones, the plantation owner, gets to call the shots. His highly paid slaves are more than happy to follow his directives.
A lot of black folks don’t even know they are slaves, even though most of them live like slaves every day. Jerry Jones is just one billionaire in the limelight who gets to expose his racism to the world, because he’s in the business of sports. How many Jerry Jones are out there in corporate America? How many field Negroes like Dak Prescott are out there working in corporate America? The circumstances of the football players aren’t any different than the circumstances that many black people face every day at work. Keep in mind, Jerry Jones is not alone in his thinking, and his forceful position against his highly paid slaves. There are plenty of other owners who share those same sentiments. As a matter of fact, there are also plenty of former slaves who left Jones’ plantation who agree with his stance. The mind of a slave is usually controlled by money. As long as a slave can get paid for being a slave, he’s comfortable in his position as a slave. Retired players who played for Jerry Jones can’t seem to get past the paychecks they earned while playing for him. It’s almost as if the slave owners who fed their slaves well were good people. That’s as close as an analogy I can give you right now.Some people might question why I’m referring to NFL players as slaves. Well, check out the process when they’re getting signed, it’s nothing less than a slave auction with a bunch of muscular naked men displaying their physical prowess for their buyer, I mean owner, I mean team president.
Moving on to the way the mind of a slave works…football players are no different than the average black worker. They just have a higher pay scale, and more vacation time than the rest of us. However, their livelihood depends more on their physical abilities and mental capabilities, occasionally. Not all these players use their brain on the field. The smarter players understand why Kaepernick had to do what he did. Still, they’re not cerebral enough to understand what it would take for Kaepernick’s stance to make an impact in their overall lives. Despite all the money they earn, they have yet to realize they are still black, and are even more of a target for murder by police, because they like to drive around in expensive cars, and live in big mansions near white people. Ask Ving Rhames how that almost worked out for him? Anyway, a slave is a controlled human being who’s under the hypnosis of his master without knowing it. Like I said, many black people are slaves, but they don’t know that they are. They’ve been under white hypnosis for so long, they have learned to function that way. Call it “a sunken place,” if you will.
Here’s what most slaves do, and why they often can’t take a stance against the injustice they face:
1- They live way above their means.
Most black people spend more money than they earn, so they usually put themselves in a position where they are at the mercy of their boss or employer. These football players can’t band together, because most of them spend more money than was guaranteed to them in their first contracts. They’re relying on the next contract in 3-4 years to sustain their lifestyle. Regular black folks do the same shit. They have Hyundai money, but they’re at the Mercedes dealership shopping for a car they can’t afford. When they can’t afford a brand new Mercedes, they usually buy a used one that’s gonna cost them thousands of dollars to maintain. In addition, they want to buy a mansion when their living wages is set up for a 3 bedroom house. When you live like that, you’ll always be a slave to your boss.
2-Slaves usually spend their check before it reaches their hand.
Black people amass so much debt, they can’t even keep up with them. We buy unnecessary shit, just because we know there’s another paycheck coming in. We don’t save for a rainy day, because we automatically assume that the sun is going to shine every day. Your boss is laughing at you meanwhile, because he knows when you pull up in that Mercedes, you just handed him your livelihood and control over your life through your job, ’cause your paycheck is half his, and he’s driving a Toyota. He’s gonna be the best slave driver you ever met, because he knows you need that job. That’s a real slave for you.
3-Slaves try to keep up with the Joneses.
Educated black folks especially, feel the need to show the world they have arrived. Not withstanding their student loan debt from their 6-8 years in college, these fools also feel they need to advertise their success to the world by buying shit that immediately give them status, a status most can’t afford right after college. They waste money on designer clothing, luxury cars, and usually live in areas they can barely afford, but they look successful to the rest of the world, though. And they are barely treading water. That’s how a slave thinks.
4-Slaves feel the need to impress other slaves.
This one is the funniest one yet, because these slaves are often found hanging at fancy lounges, hip restaurants and clubs owned by the children or relatives of the slave master, you know? white-owned establishments. They go there to display the latest fashion and designer clothing that they are wearing, and are quick to drop $1000.00 on a bottle of liquor that normally costs $50.00 at the liquor store. This is their stage, and they’ll do anything to own it, without realizing the white owner will throw their asses out or discriminate against them at will. Black-owned lounges, restaurants, bars and clubs around the neighborhood are not good enough for them. They need to be downtown where the trendy white folks hang out. They usually take over white establishments on certain nights. These nights are often designated as “Negro night.” White people know to stay away. Keywords like “Hip Hop night” is used. They feel the need to enrich white supremacy further by wasting their money at these white establishments. Typical slave.
5-These slaves think they are better slaves because of their position at work.
Most often these people are supervisors or managers at their company, but they mostly supervise or manage other black employees. They often refer to their good work habit, dedication, education, and drive to justify their position and why they are better than other black people. They are quick to throw around their many degrees, and brag about the different organizations that they are a part of, and most of the time, they’re not even as active in these organizations as they pretend to be. They’re too busy at work to have time to do anything else, but don’t let them tell it. These are the type of slaves who think they’re in charge of the plantation.
6-These slaves believe their masters love them.
In the eyes of these slaves, white people can do no wrong. As long as their boss gives them the overtime when they need it, that boss is the epitome of the picture of that white Jesus hanging on their wall at home and at work. These are your ass kissing slaves.
7-These slaves love their master more than they love themselves.
These slaves usually date out of their race, and they find every excuse in their heads to paint a bad picture of black men and women of their own race. Everything white is right, and everything black is bad. They don’t want to go to places where black people are the majority. Any Hip Hop spot is out of the question, because they automatically assume they might get shot, or get into a fight. They go to bars and stand out like a sore thumb around the white people who wish they weren’t there. White women and white men are gods and goddesses to them, and they will do anything to please them. They’re very submissive to their white partner. However, they like to bump heads with other black people in a relationship. These are basically your Sambos, a slave of a different type, who hate themselves and the skin they were born in.
8-These slaves don’t know that they are slaves.
These people are just lost. They think the world doesn’t see color, and all the black people that are discriminated against brought it on themselves. They blame black folks for dressing a certain way, for talking a certain way, an for acting a certain way in every situation that we face. These are your totally fucking lost slaves.
9-These slaves prepare their children to become slaves.
These folks are in love with the suburbs, white education, white society, white standards, white culture, and white people. They tell their kids to find a great job after college with a white company, and if they work hard enough, they can be just like their white neighbor. Their children usually date out of their race, because they are often the token Negro at the school they attend. If there’s another token female there, she’s more likely to be into white boys. These are your comatose slaves. These people aren’t even aware of the black world. They see a fictitious utopia in their heads.
10-These slaves are very comfortable in their positions as slaves.
This particular category includes all of the above categories, because for the most part, black people are very comfortable in their position as second class citizens, not just in this country, but worldwide. They don’t like to challenge white people in any way, so they just do what they’re told, and accept anything that white people dish out to them. They love to march, beg and protest peacefully. These are your comfortable slaves, and that’s most black people. If we weren’t so comfortable as slaves, white people wouldn’t be able to sleep at night, given all the shit they have done to us.
