You know, I am damn near burned the hell out because of that very fact. I have grown weary of so many Black people having such a nonchalant attitude regarding the true state of African America/Americans and the Black race globally. For example, I hadn't been too long ago trying to explain why Black people should just skip buying pizza from Papa John's after the owner of the chain tried to sabotage Obama/the Healthcare Act, etc., by "threatening" to "have" to fire employees, etc., etc., all I got from this person was, "uh, well, I love Papa John's Pizza, so . . . " I know that seems trivial by comparison to many of the truly big and pressing issues facing Black people, African America and the Black race globally, but, this is the attitude of far too many Black people no matter what the issue. I really don't think it would matter one way or another to many Black people if they were re-enacting slavery, or sending Black people to the gas chambers, or if the owner of Papa Johns' was a sabotaging racist; I think it all the same to them.
One thing I have learned/am learning for sure, is that, Ignorance is dangerous and just as much a contagious disease that leads to mental slavery, self-inflicted harm and genocide of a people, as a genocidal war, war tactics and germ warfare being waged against those people.
EXACTLY!!!! my sista. And you know it's even more than that...I mean more than what we can see with the naked and third eye....cuz I tell you! Between the ignorance of blackfolks and the ignorance of act not called gay outside the United States? Both are gonna be the downfall of this country. Watch. Cuz the real difference? Each is the paradox to the other. And if you look closely the act not call gay outside the United States is what is enslaving Africans in North Africa, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somolia...etc, It is the silent power. And this silent power is loudly coming to America. Hell it's already here.
So with the top of the crop Africans aka African Americans creating a beautiful life for massa but not for themselves [and they can't see it cuz they are tooooo busy committing self-genocide] and on the other side of the world the attempt to keep Africa enslaved and engaged in the psycho destruction of its own people so that these folks [participating in the thousands of year old act not called gay] can continue to enjoy what they considered a beautiful life...this cycle is simply a paradox. And once we understand that...and that we are really living by faith and not by "sight" cuz the eyes can be fooled....only then can we pull ourselves outta this cesspool of violence and ignorance and go about rebuilding our culture as a whole...including everything "black" from the inside and outside of American soil. Only then we will be FREE. Cuz the real secret is massa and sultan....are really....cowards...whose power strengthens with IGNORANCE. Once that's dismantled permenantly? Real freedom will emerge. But! We have to be ready for it. Will we? That's the million dollar question. Cuz many of us like comfort. are lazy and don't know how to look beyond what is seen. So time will tell. But!
