We as Black people are feared for all the wrong reasons. White America first tried to label our people as drugged up dopers who get high then rape and
That didn't work so then white America blamed the crack epidemic on us and said that we black people were responsible for that. Then it turned out to
be the US government(Reagan administration)who was responsible for pumping MASSIVE AMOUNTS of coc aine and guns into our urban communities via
the drug cartels THUS CREATING A REALITY & CREATING A DRUG MARKET to point their fingers at us black people to blame.
They know nothing about our culture apart from what they see on BET and MSM(and both are wrong). It is a shame actually because most blacks that I
know apart from my family are well-educated, decent, honest hard working people who are making an honest living by working hard and TAKING CARE OF
It is a # shame in this day and age that white people still see us black people as a threat when they have more to fear from their OWN government who
provides "safety" and "freedoms" to them.
Now enter the Obama era...The first African-American President of the United States a.k.a. Bush's fall guy. This did not help us as a people either
due to what I call the Obama Effect
The Obama Effect basically did us in as a race due to our people(black America) anticipating not HOPE ...Not CHANGE...but ENTITLEMENT!
I saw this coming around the corner while Obama was running for office. Now white America has another stereotypic tail to try to pin on us. Most white
people will tell you, "Oh I have several black friends"...I have news for you...
NO YOU DON'T!
DON'T LIE TO YOURSELF!... AND PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SELL ME THOSE WOLF TICKETS!
I AM NOT BUYING THEM!... NOT EVEN ON SALE!!!
Facebook, Twitter, ect doesn't count. Let me define the definition of the term "Friend"
Friend - One who HAS THE 100% MUTUAL TRUST and TRUE COMPANIONSHIP of another INDIVIDUAL.
Now that definition you will not find in Merriam-Webster... that is the sacred definition that we as black people know.
MOST white people do not have the *100% MUTUAL TRUST & 100% TRUE COMPANIONSHIP of ANY BLACK PERSON.
Besides the average white person saying, "My 847 Facebook "Friends" has black people in it"...so?
If you were to ask any of them to come to your IMMEDIATE AID and RESCUE you are in for a shock and surprise...one that you probably NEED!
Where as if any of my fellow friends needed me I am on the next plane smoking!(and vica versa)..That is a TRUE FRIEND!...and to tell you the truth I
only have a hand full that I can count on like that, and so do they and onward and so forth. Makes for a high quality circle of what us black people
call TRUES!....but least I digress....
I was raised very well to do, never wanted for anything and was grounded on the premise of "NEVER LET WHITE PEOPLE IN YOUR HOUSE" and with that being
said for a reason due to NO TRUST of them and the JEALOUSY FACTOR of whites having their stereotypes of us black people not having a brain to think
with let alone gainful & luxurous material things(bought for with cash that was earned with GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT that was obtain through the
establishment of a HIGH EDUCATION...which was paid for via HARD WORK, SCHOLARSHIPS and GRANTS) ...and we kept the latest and greatest of
everything..in fact were the first to have WHATEVER.
So BROTHER I see your point and I say unto you, "do not chase the wind" for white America will forever have their stereotypic image of us as black
America has of them.
I applaud your efforts and attempt to try to get your point into their reasoning facilities, but when you are dealing with HOME GROWN IGNORANCE don't
waste your time....time is too precious.
