I am sure that by now everybody who frequents different blogs have heard about THIS.
Is this surprising to me?
Does it upset me?
'Well "Mr. A Blackman's View" how does this not upset you?
Well I guess it will be better to show you than tell you, even though I am going to tell you too. Check out these pictures......
Now after seeing these coons depicted above is it any wonder that White People think that we are all like this?
This shit I have shown above is what our "culture" supposedly is. This is what being "Black in America" means.
This is what the thousands of Black People that fought for our right to be treated as a human beings died for.
This is their legacy.
So who is in the wrong here?
Is it the ignorant White Folks that believe what they see in rap video's, BET or the MSM?
Or is it the ignorant Black Folks that try with every breath in their bodies to live up to all the negative stereo-types said White Folks believe?
Appearances are everything.
If we as Black People continue to appear to be "ghetto", then we will be continually treated as "ghetto".
Even though the term "Ghetto" did not start out as being a code word for Black People. Ghetto's for those of you that do not know their history, was started in America to keep the Jews, Italians and Irish that migrated here from their respected countries in one central location. These immigrants whether by design or necessity all congregated together in their own Little Italy's, Little Jerusalem, or Little Dublin's. They lived in the poorest housing, went to the poorest schools and ate the scraps that the British Immigrants left on the floors of their mansions.
But unlike the Blacks that eventually took over their "ghetto's", they shied away from everything that made other people think of them as lawless animals. They fought for their respect and passed that respect down to their children. Now all these people are looked at as being respectable Americans, while my people are subjected to "Compton Parties" during the very month that is supposed to enlighten the world to our accomplishments in this country.
Is this by design also?
I believe it is.....
But there is no excuse for my people in this day and age to try to make the lies that were started by others the truth.
As I said in a very recent post, We cannot expect others to respect us if we do not respect ourselves.
All the warriors of our past American History have got to be very upset with the way their Grandchildren turned out. Instead of quoting the words of Langston Hughes, we are quoting the words of that number one coon Plies and all the other Lil's and Yungs that have become the modern day version of Malcolm X.
So don't get mad at the ignorant ass White Kids that are only reenacting what they see everyday. Get mad at the men and women in the mirror that are starring in the real life version of Black American Culture, the reality show as seen on BET, MTV and VH1, with the sound track featuring all the Yungs, Jezzies, Lil's and the Mommies,with the occasional appearance by the Ga-ga's the Thickes or the Mayers.
