What needs to happen is change. My people. Black people. We have to create our own change. I have recently seen video of a a black woman, Sandra Bland, be violated of her rights granted by the constitution. Over and over again the police mistreat us and we march and we demand change from people who will not give it to us. I need us to stop looking and waiting for this imaginary change to come from a government that could care less about us. We were brought here to do free labor our purpose was to never be treated equally. But we have to come to the realization that we no longer need these people’s approval or stamp to validate our existence. We are smarter than this.
“Integration was worst than segregation” – David Banner. Integration is the worst thing since slavery to happen to my people. We as black people no longer have self love. We are taught to hate everything about ourselves. We have been taught to do everything for white people’s approval. We want to be accepted by this white society and teach our kids to behave in certain ways so they can make white people happy. The love we once had for our own culture has damn near vanished. We don’t look after each other as we once did. We don’t care about our past and value where we came from. We don’t educate ourselves about our real history. We believe the crap they tell us in the classroom that make the white man seem innocent and teach us to forgive him.
Black people have began to study the white man and are beginning to treat each other like the white man has treated us and other people for centuries. We are taking the anger out on our own people by killing each other and tearing each other down. We have began to become capitalist like the white man and it doesn’t help our people. We gain money and forget where we come from and who we are. We only use where we came from to gain money and popularity. The white man has let us become a part of this evil economic system and it has not helped us as people. It separates us and makes one group people feel as though they are more important than the other. The color of the money in our wallets will not change America’s hatred toward the color of our skin.
What we need to do is rely on ourselves. Love one another. We need leaders to build up the communities we live in. We need to police our own communities to stop police brutality. We need to educate our children on the real history and tell them truth about this country. We need to have our own stores and own goods to start a black economic system. Not like the white mans economy. One with care and that doesn’t put money over a individuals life. We shall no longer fight in the white mans wars. We should build ourselves so we will no longer have to beg for the white mans sympathy and approval. The white man will only be accepted when they pay what they owe and then one day we may be able to start a partnership. Thank you.
