quote:I find it interesting that many of the American "Founding Fathers" (like Thomas Jefferson) were Deists and really considered "Bible believing" Christianity beneath them but didn't hesitate to teach it to their slaves. This religion has always been associated with the bottom rung of American society.
I say that to say this: A lot of the arrogance including the ideas of exclusivity and exceptionalism we've discussed here are features of Western Culture... And here we have Black people mimicking White/Western Thought while trying to pretend as if they are Black and conscious.
For some of the "pretenders", we are actually seeking guidance and the only source of information is the western/white. I don't think its pretending, we are just trying to get on the path. Personally, I am struggling with the revelation of the ridiculous amount of mis-info I've received from a child (only black girl in school, devoted catholic, southern BAP) So I am really using yall as my community. Maybe you should reach out and try to help us become more enlightened with information instead of attacks for not knowing. I think there is a process to becoming unplugged. (white brainwashing and devils brainwashing) Not everyone is as smart as yall, but ONE WHO LEARNS, TEACHES. And, I appreciate the lessons.
