I saw a meme some time ago with Martin Luther King Locking arms with a group of Black men vs Young black boys today sagging their pants. The caption read “when they respected us vs why they don’t respect us now”…While I understand the point the meme was trying to make I feel the deeper message is problematic.
White people DID NOT respect blacks during that civil rights era. They were Bombing little blacks girls in churches and spraying black people down with hoses. Blacks dressing in nice suits and dresses DID NOT change the harsh treatment they received. That Meme is inaccurate. The way Black people dress, how much money they made, how low they cut their hair, how straight the made their hair, or how “educated” they were has never changed the way whites view Blacks. Like my dude Tupac said “I don’t care if you a lawyer, a doctor…These white folks view us as Niggers and thugs”
Whats the point of this post? The point that too many black people practice this pseudo-logical philosophy that if we somehow someway “act” more towards white peoples standards then they will accept and respect us. If yall stop “cussin, killing each other, acting this or that way white people will respect us” ask yourself, is that really true? What evidence do you have?
I know people of the African diaspora living in Africa, America, Europe, and The Carribean lost their culture/history/Africanisms so it may be hard to understand but White People ARE NOT the standard for Humanity. White culture/customs are NOT the Alpha and Omega of Human life. Regardless of what they have programmed into your mind what your ancestors practiced is what civilized the world. Always remember that. Peace.
