What’s going on in Charlottesville right now is the reason we don’t need “Black Lives Matter” I don’t expect you to understand what is so obvious! For the simple reason we’ve not progressed beyond The Reconstruction Era. Civil Rights were a fight for something we were all ready given. Instead of a Black Lives Matter Movement, we need a “Proud To Be Black Movement.” In 2017 we are still trying to convince a faction of America that “we matter” That mindset shows me that a lot of blacks don’t understand that we built America. We were its most valuable commodity and now its primary consumer, trend setter, and test subject. The Caucasian follows as the Black person most notably “The Black Woman” leads.
Our community will never resemble the Jewish, Italian, or Asian communities mainly because they have HERITAGE. We don’t we have heritage what we have is an inherited plan of survival whether it be the way we eat, think or socialize. We are united by 1 thing for sure our skin color and everything from there gets murky. We have an ingrained mistrust of each other and a compassionate streak that rivals Gandhi. That is our major weakness and also what makes us the most religious people in this country. It just doesn’t lend itself to each other, it is only for everything and everyone not associated with being black.
As time has moved on we have only gotten more compassionate and more blind to facts. The person that calls themselves a “White Supremacist” is the Caucasian pit-bull. They fight for a cause that all white people will benefit from even the people standing on the other side of them protesting the White Supremacist. Do you understand that Reconstruction Era gave us, BLACKS complete equality as Americans? There should have been no need for a Civil Rights Movement. I will leave it here, think about every single opportunity the Black Race has had to make sure the Reconstruction Era rights were honored.
We as a people have a trait it is a trait a characteristic that does not allow us to be proactive, instead we are reactive, and only when things have gotten to the worst they possible can be. Even still our compassion for anyone that is not “Black” comes into play. Seeing a black person fighting for animal rights is an exact example of this trait. Someone would defend a beast that has more right to live than some people think you do, what sense does that make?
Today we are still looked upon as inferior, yet we represent ourselves as inferior for the most part. We allow class and wages to separate and segregate our selves from each other! We can’t even understand how the word “nigger/nigga” is not a term of endearment, instead it is a racial slur used to keep us identified as less than! Yet not even I can stop using it! The Black Race is in 2 wars the first is the same war every ethnicity is in, to prove their history matters and their culture is unique and valuable. The 2nd war is the most important war because it negates the first because the black race in America has no roots to trace back to, accept slavery. Which gave us no cultural identity, and left us to replicate the Caucasian man and woman’s lifestyle, dress and attitude. Which is why we have never rebelled against them, we are ingrained they are a step parent of sorts. It is a generational Stockholm syndrome manifestation.
Yeah that’s scary I know you can get a DNA trace that will take you back to Africa, but that’s not who you really are, You are really from Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Louisville etc… that’s who you really are. Your “Big Momma” “Dai-Dai” and “Boogies” your cousins from New York to California 90% trace back to slavery. I said 90% because freemen from Europe and Africa did come over and settle in the West, North and South. Not to mention there were Africans already in America before Slavery chattel slavery was proliferated and became the machine it was. Even if your people came from the Islands they were originally slaves as well, don’t get cocky!
I am going to leave it here for you to decide where we go from here. Remember begging for someone to accept you is a lot different from showing some your proud enough to make them respect you! The Black race in 2017 should not still be begging for respect and acknowledgment, period! It shows a bigger deficit of Intelligence, Pride, Culture, and Self Respect among ourselves to think that a compassionate self destructive community could ever defeat a savage, well funded machine built on hate and supported openly and from the closet.
