Black People Being Overly Happy About Dark Skinned Couples In Hollywood

Many times on social media, I notice a lot of black people being upset about black people in Hollywood dating or marrying white people. I saw people upset and arguing about Serena Williams marrying a white man. I remember a few years ago, I saw a post on Facebook of black women berating O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Ice Cube’s son) because he was with a white woman. I see black people being mad when they see dark skinned black celebrities date or marry light skinned people as well. A few years ago, I saw a video of a black woman on YouTube berating Kendrick Lamar for having a light skinned girlfriend.

On the other hand, I see black people being overly happy when they finally see a celebrity dark skinned couple. Denzel Washington and his wife, Pauletta, Viola Davis and her husband, Julius Tennon, or any rapper with a woman who isn’t light skinned, for example.

I understand why they would be happy when they see these dark skinned couples, given the fact that we actually don’t see them as much in the media. But this shows that there are huge problems in the black community. And even though I noticed people being overly happy about dark skinned couples, I also noticed that people don’t talk about those couples as much as they complain about interracial couples or a dark skinned person being with a light skinned person.

The problems I believe this behavior shows about the black community is that there’s a lot of colorism, especially in Hollywood. I also believe that people shouldn’t give interracial couples more attention than the dark skinned couples, especially when there are dark skinned couples out there. I believe interracial couples getting more attention than dark skinned couples also stems from colorism.

Another problem I believe the black community has is insecurity. I believe that when black people see these interracial couples, it makes them feel like they’re not wanted by their own people, especially if they are rich or a celebrity. Seeing interracial couples causes insecurities in some people, whether they admit it or not. I don’t believe there were be so many negative reactions if it didn’t cause insecurities. Therefore, when they see dark skinned people, they feel happier.

We have to stop letting this bother us so much. If these people don’t want to date other black people, then let them stay with the other people. As the saying goes, “Let the trash take itself out”. It’s better for them to date out instead of them continuing to date their own people, knowing they have deep rooted issues with their own people. All they’re going to do is mistreat them.

It’s pretty sad that after everything our race has been through throughout history and everything our people have fought for, we still have these strong, negative issues about skin color. What’s worst is a lot of black people don’t want to talk about these things. They’ll talk about white people and racism all day long. But when it comes time to talk about how black people perpetuate hate amongst each other over skin color and many other things, they want to shy away from it.

A reader of mine told me about this and I’m glad this was brought to my attention. I really wish that there will come a day where all black people can say we defeated colorism and we no longer have these problems.

When Black Men Diss Black Women, They Don’t Realize They’re Also Dissing Themselves

Over the years, I’ve heard many black men use statistics of all kinds to attack black women and treat them like they’re less than black men and aren’t good enough for black men. I’m pretty sure anyone who reads this post will know exactly what I’m talking about and have seen black men do this online themselves.

What black men don’t realize is that these statistics that they use to attack black women about are also a huge reflection of themselves. In this post, I’m going to name a few things I’ve seen many black men attack black women for online and explain how those very same things can be applied to them as well.

“Black women are the least likely women in the world to get married.” So many black men online love repeating this statistic like it doesn’t apply to them. But if black women are less likely to get married, what does that say about black men? It says that there’s a huge percentage of black men that aren’t marrying their own women! How are you complaining about black women being unmarried when it is YOUR job to marry them? Why aren’t you marrying your women? Also, they repeat this statistic like they’re getting married at a much higher rate than black women. Black men aren’t very likely to get married compared to other races of men in the world themselves.

Many black men will say it’s because of black women’s attitudes and they’re just not good enough to marry. But what makes them so good enough to marry black women? Many of these black men who repeat this statistic are not marriage material themselves. Many of them are abusers, cheaters, and users of women.

If you pay attention, almost, if not all of these black men who repeat this statistic online, are never married or been in a healthy, long term relationship with a black woman, or any woman, for that matter. Or if they have been married, they’ve been divorced multiple times. How do they get to talk so much about black women not being married when they can’t even get at least a long term relationship with a woman?

If they think marriage is so special and they know the type of woman that they want, how come they can never find and marry these women? When black women end up with the wrong men, they say black women are looking in the wrong places for men and never giving good men a chance. Are these types of black men looking in the wrong places for women and not giving good women a chance? Or do they just know that no woman would ever want to be with them, especially long term? And if they do get this good woman that they claim they want, they’re going to do nothing, but dog her and ruin her self esteem and her life.

“There’s a huge percentage of black women that are single mothers and they are ruining the black community by raising fatherless children.”          This can easily be reflected on black men by me saying that this statement means that black men are impregnating large percentages of black women across this country, abandoning black women to take care of their children on their own, and have the audacity to mock and attack black women for something they did.

If there weren’t so many black men sleeping with black women unprotected and leaving them when they get pregnant, they wouldn’t have to worry about there being so many single mothers in the black community. And if these black men think that children being fatherless are destroying the black community, why aren’t they staying with their children? Why do they keep abandoning them? And if they aren’t yet ready to take care of child, why do they keep creating them?

There are also black men who say that there are so many black single mothers because black women “don’t know how to choose to the right man to get pregnant by”. But what is that saying about black men if there’s this many black men impregnating women and then abandoning them? Why is there so many black men that aren’t stepping up to the plate and raising the children that they are creating?

I honestly believe the real reason why so many black men hate single mothers is because THEY KNOW it is a reflection of their failures as men and as fathers. One of the worst things a father can do to a child is abandon them. From the way I see it, if a man abandons his child, he is a failure as a man.

When they look around the black community and see so many single mothers and so many fatherless children, it makes them think, are we this much of a failure to our women and children? But instead of taking that thought and doing better as men and fathers, they project and flip it in a way to attack black women.

“Most black women have multiple kids by multiple men.”                         My response to this statement is pretty much the same as black men’s statements about single mothers. They love picking black women apart for being single mothers, but they don’t see how that reflects on themselves. Just like how they don’t see how this statement reflects back on them. What is it saying about black men that the majority of black women have children by multiple men? It’s saying that the majority of black men are sleeping around with different women, having children with them, and then leaving. With many of them not even making an effort to take care of the children they created at all.

It’s easy for black men to sit up on a high horse and criticize black single mothers with multiple kids because black women are more likely to stay with their children, no matter how many they have. So, of course, it’s going to look like they have a lot of kids.

Black men, on the other hand, can have a child, abandon them, then pretend they don’t have any kids. But if these black men were single fathers who stayed with the kids they created, you would see that they will have multiple kids by multiple mothers, just like how they complain about black women having multiple kids by multiple men. And would more than likely have more kids than single black mothers.

It’s a shame that black women are criticized for staying with their kids and being smart and strong enough to leave the men that didn’t work out for them, while black men who abandon their children time and time again get a free pass.

“Too many black women are overweight or obese.”                                                       Not only do black men who say this rarely talk about how there’s a huge number of them who are overweight and obese also (when they do, it’s only after black women call them out for not talking about themselves), they don’t realize that the “overweight” women include the “thick” women they are constantly swooning over, not just the women who are too big for their liking. Most thick women are overweight by medical and statistics standards. They also like to pick on black women who are thin for not only being too skinny, but also for not having big boobs or a big butt. And don’t let her be athletic and muscular. They’ll say she looks like a man, especially if she’s dark skinned! They complain about black women being overweight, but don’t even like the women who aren’t overweight.                                                                                         

“Black women who date white men are bedwenches.”                                       These types of black men who are always complaining about and criticizing black women are always crying whenever they see a black woman in a relationship with a white man (at the same time saying they don’t care who black women date; we know that’s a lie), but they never talk about how black men date outside of their race at a much higher rate than black women. They are also constantly putting nonblack women on a pedestal over black women ALL THE TIME!

This ties into what I said about them not marrying their women, yet complaining about their women not being married. They don’t want to marry their own women, but get mad when their women marry men outside of their race. You don’t want to marry your women. Who else is going to marry them if you don’t? You don’t want to marry your own women, yet you hate when they’re single or marry outside of their race? MAKE IT MAKE SENSE!

Also, doesn’t this sound a lot like what abusers do to their victims? Tell and convince them that no one else wants them, but the abusers don’t want anyone else to have them?

These statements prove to me that black men who say these things not only severely lack self awareness, they severely lack accountability as well. They never think any kind of critique applies to them, but they think every critique applies to black women. I previously wrote a post on my blog about men (of all races, not just black men) hating accountability. Lacking accountability is huge for men, regardless of how much they claim women hate accountability.

Writing this post reminded me of a comment I saw on a YouTube channel some time ago that said something along the lines of, “Black men only talk about black women’s statistics because they are embarrassed about their own”. And I couldn’t agree more! That’s exactly why they do it!

If you know of any other negative statements you’ve heard black men say about black women that also reflects negatively back on them that I missed, leave them in the comments.

Are People Celebrating Death Without Knowing It?

I always thought that it was weird how when people are alive, so many others treat them like garbage and say all kinds of mean things to them. But when they die, many of those same people are at the funeral crying and talking about how much the dead people are going to be missed and saying all kinds of positive things.

There’s a scene in the movie, Wonder Woman 1984, where a man and a woman were arguing and the man said, “Why don’t you just drop dead?” And since people’s wishes were coming true, she actually did and he cried over her. Luckily, she was able to come back to life because Wonder Woman convinced everyone in the world to take back their wishes in order to stop the chaos going on. But still, you can see the immediate change in the man’s feelings towards the woman when she was alive versus when she died.

This phenomenon happens to celebrities, especially. When Whitney Houston was alive, so many people had so many negative things to say about her. So many people talked about her being on drugs and called her all sorts of names. Dragged her for her relationship with Bobby Brown. But when she died, her music sales shot up exponentially and so many people said they were going to miss her, talked about how great of a singer she was, and how good of a person she was.

Michael Jackson was constantly picked apart by people for everything you can think of. His plastic surgeries, the change in his skin complexion, him being accused of being a pedophile, and other scandals. But when he died, all that talk disappeared and turned into sorrow. People were even running in the streets crying when he died.

Many rappers who die end up getting called “legends” after they die, especially if they die young. And most of the time, most people have never heard of these rappers or ever listened to their music before. But because they died, all of a sudden, they’re legends?

There’s nothing wrong with showing your condolences to people when they die, especially if they die young or tragically. Death is a very sad thing for everyone. You don’t have to know someone to send your condolences, either. I say that because a lot of people try to use that as an excuse for when people are sending their condolences to a music artists they never heard of. I’ve heard people say, “I’ve never heard of this person, so I don’t care that they died”, or “Y’all don’t know this person. How are y’all so sad?” It’s okay to send condolences to music artists (or anyone) who die that you don’t know. But don’t be the type of person who always complains about them or their profession when they’re alive, but when they die, all of a sudden, you turn into a fan.

Don’t be the type of person that’s always dogging or ignoring someone when they’re alive, but the moment they die, all of a sudden, you want to care about them and be sad. Show people that kind of love when they’re alive. When they can see and hear it with their own eyes.

This phenomena in people made me wonder if this means that people are celebrating death without realizing it. It seems to me that this society hates people when they’re alive, but when they die, there’s all this sudden pouring of love and sorrow. Where did that all come from and where was it when the person was alive? I’m pretty sure these people would’ve loved to see and hear all this love and care when they were alive and probably really needed that type of positive energy.

All that made me think that there might be someone or something out there that would rather see people dead than alive and when they are dead, they’re celebrating the person’s death. I know that sounds dark and disturbing, but it’s definitely something I’ve been wondering about for years. I will never understand why people do that to one another.

Black Women Blaming Black Men For Why They Don’t Wear Their Natural Hair

Many times on social media, I’ve seen black women say that they don’t go natural because black men don’t like natural hair. If one black man said something negative about natural hair on social media, that man would not only get dragged, but many black women would say, “That’s why we don’t wear natural hair” or “We wear weave and straight hair because black men like it”.

Another thing I’ve seen many times on social media is black women who actually do go natural, then say “black men don’t pay attention to me or compliment me when I wear natural hair”, so they go back to wearing weave or straightening their hair.

But on the flip side, when black men say they don’t like weave and they prefer women with natural hair, so many black women respond with “We don’t care what black men like or don’t like!”. Why is it that black women need all this attention and reassurance from black men, all of a sudden, when they wear their natural hair, but as soon as they wear weave or straightened hair, they don’t care what black men think?

I remember seeing a tweet some time ago where a black man said he didn’t like box braids and not only did black women respond with saying they “didn’t care what he liked”, they also posted pictures under his tweet with them in box braids out of spite to his tweet.

Why can’t black women do that when black men say something negative about their natural hair? Why do they all of a sudden care what black men think when they wear their natural hair? Why do they use black men saying something negative about natural hair as more of an excuse to wear weave and straightened hair, but when black men say something negative about weave and straightened hair, it doesn’t make them stop wearing weave or straightened hair?

Black women who use this excuse are full of crap! I’m sorry! Black men are not the reason you don’t wear your natural hair. Black men are not the reason you’re obsessed with weave and straightened hair. You’re not refusing to wear your natural hair because black men don’t like it. You’re refusing to wear your natural hair because YOU don’t like it! And you wear weave and straight hair, not because black men like it, but because YOU like it.

If you like wearing weave and straight hair, by all means, wear it. But STOP blaming black men for why you do it. Nobody is telling you to wear weave and straightened hair, but yourself!

This makes me think of how women of all races, not just black women, say that they wear makeup, dress in revealing clothing, and get plastic surgeries because men don’t pay attention to them when they don’t have makeup on, aren’t dressing in revealing clothing, or have their natural bodies. But as soon as a man says they prefer women without makeup and with natural bodies, want women to stop dressing in such revealing clothing, or women look better without makeup and surgeries, women say they don’t care what men think. Again, why do women care so much about what men think when they don’t have on makeup, aren’t dressing in revealing clothing, or don’t have surgeries, but when men say they don’t like those things when they wear them, all of a sudden, they don’t care what men think again?

Women get mad at men for saying they prefer how women look naturally because men busted their excuse. They love using men as an excuse for why they put so much unnatural things on and in their bodies for aesthetics and wear revealing clothing, but as soon as men say they don’t like all that stuff, women can’t use that as an excuse anymore.

The real reason women look for attention and reassurance from men suddenly when they wear their natural hair and go without makeup, dressing in revealing clothing, and surgeries is because they’re insecure with how they look naturally. They want men to give them more attention and reassurance so they can feel better. But when they wear weave, makeup, dress in revealing clothing, and get surgeries, their confidence is on 100%, so then all of a sudden, they no longer care what men think.

I’m sick of women blaming men for their choices. Wear weave, makeup, revealing clothing, and get surgeries all you want. But at least be honest and say you get them because YOU want to get them. Not because “men like it” or “men don’t like you when you don’t have it”. You prefer YOURSELF in weave and straightened hair. You prefer YOURSELF in makeup. You prefer YOURSELF in revealing clothing. You prefer YOURSELF in surgeries. You don’t get these things because men don’t like you without these things. YOU don’t like you without it.

Quit blaming that on men! Stop acting like you need so much reassurance from men when you’re in your natural state, then acting like you couldn’t care less about their reassurance when you’re wearing weave, straightened hair, makeup, revealing clothing, and plastic surgeries! Or quit lying and saying you don’t care about men’s opinions or their attention when you KNOW you do!

Why Does Talking About Racism & Slavery Make White People “Ashamed To Be White”?

Photo: (Flickr)

I’ve seen comments like this under many posts on social media and videos on YouTube that talk about racism and the racist history of America. Whenever a conversation about racism and slavery in America is being had, there’s always a white person saying that talking about that makes them “ashamed to be white”.

I will share a few articles I found talking about white people saying this as proof, in case someone doesn’t believe that this actually happens and tries to refute it: https://aninjusticemag.com/i-am-embarrassed-to-be-a-white-man-53f4830ee30c?gif=true https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/underdog-psychology/202007/why-white-shame-is-term-everyone-should-learn https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_guilt

When black people talk about racism, police brutality, slavery, and history, we’re not asking white people to be “ashamed to be white”. We’re just asking them to NOT BE RACIST! Does this mean white people would rather be ashamed of themselves instead of not being racist when they do this? Are they this incapable of not being racist?

All black people ask is for police officers to stop killing unarmed black people. How is that “dividing this country”, as they claim whenever protests about it happen? Are they trying to say that police officers are that incapable of not killing unarmed black people that just talking about it and asking them to stop “divides this country”?

Why does talking about all the racist things that happened in the history of this country make white people “ashamed to be white”? Why doesn’t it just make them not want to be racist? Talking about America’s racist history is inevitable. It NEEDS to be talked about as long as this country exists. No one should EVER forget about this country’s racist history!

When black people talk about police brutality and ask police officers to stop killing unarmed black people, there are some white people who take that as black people saying they “hate the police” or they want to get rid of the police. Black people aren’t asking for the police to go away. They’re asking them to stop killing unarmed black people. How does asking police to stop committing brutality mean hating the police? Nobody hates the police. We hate them abusing people and their power!

Is white people doing this just a way for them to guilt trip black people into not talking about the things that they do because it makes them uncomfortable? Because they don’t want to face what their people are doing in this country? Also, when talking about slavery or anything else in America’s history, they love to say that it was “their ancestors and not them”. If they really believe that, then why does black people talking about these things make them ashamed instead of just making them not want to do the same things they did? Why do they feel guilty over something their “ancestors” did?

It’s because they know they are connected to those people. They know they are the same people, even though they try to convince black people that they aren’t.

Dear white people, black people asking you to just not be racist is NOT asking you to hate being white. It’s really not too much to ask. If it really is too much to ask of you to not be racist and not kill unarmed black people, then that’s YOUR problem. NOT black people simply asking you to be a decent person.

Why Are People Afraid To Have Daughters?

Photo: (Wikimedia Commons)

I’ve been hearing people say for years that they pray that they never have daughters because they’re afraid she will grow up to sleep with a lot of boys and dress in revealing clothing. As a matter of fact, I remember a particular conversation some girls were having when I was in middle school, where one of them said they didn’t want a daughter because they would be trying to sneak out of the house with boys and things of that nature, and other girls agreed with her.

This made me ponder, ‘Why are people so afraid of having daughters that they think about them being sexually active or what type of clothes they will be wearing before they’re even born, but no one’s ever afraid of having sons that grow up to beat, rape, and/or sexually harass women? I’ve never heard anybody say, “I never want a son because boys grow up to abuse women”.

So many people swear that their daughters will grow up to be a “whore” and live in constant fear of that with every passing year their daughters grow up, but nobody ever believes that their sons will grow up to be abusers, despite the fact that the number of women getting abused by men continues to remain high every year. I know a lot of people will say, “I raised my sons better than that.” Okay. You trust you raised your son better than to be an abuser, but you don’t trust your daughter’s sexuality?

Also, I believe it’s more likely that a boy will grow up to be an abuser or rapist than a girl will grow up to be the sexually active person so many people fear they will. I hate to say that, but hearing all these stories about women getting abused and raped by men makes me believe that.

Why are people more afraid of their daughters being sexually active and wearing revealing clothing than they are of their sons growing up to be abusers? Why does a girl’s sexuality have so many people in fear of having daughters, but men abusing women doesn’t make anyone afraid to have sons?

On the flip side, I’ve heard people say that they didn’t want to have daughters because of how many abusers there are in the world and they don’t want their daughters to go through that. Again, why does men abusing women make so many people afraid to have daughters, but it doesn’t make them afraid to have sons?

I believe this is deep rooted misogyny and sexism. And I believe when some people say they don’t want to have daughters because they’re “afraid they’re going to get abused”, they say that to make it seem like their fear of having a daughter is a good thing and isn’t deep rooted in misogyny.

The real reason you don’t want to have a daughter is because you hate girls and women. You’ve been brainwashed to believe girls are more difficult to raise than boys. The truth is people just care more about their girls because this society is built on controlling women, especially sexually. So much so, that they try to do it long before they’re even born. So many people out there don’t care about what their sons do. Their sons do whatever they want while they’re putting a microscope on their daughters.

And I’ve heard both men and women say they pray that they never have daughters because of both of these reasons, so I don’t want men and women coming under this post to point fingers at each other about who says it or doesn’t. I’ve heard a lot of women in my life repeat internalized sexist ideas.

So many people are so eager to control the sexualities of their young girls so much, but they never talk about how they’re going to control their sons from abusing girls and women as they grow up.

How are any of you more afraid of how your daughters’ sexualities might be than you are of your sons being abusers? How are your daughters’ sexualities more of a threat to you than your sons being abusers, harassers, and rapists? You’re more afraid of female sexuality than you are of violence. I will never understand that.

Stop Saying We Need More Black Doctors, Lawyers, etc.!

(Photo: Flickr)

I know this title sounds bad, but hear me out. I hear so many black people say, “We don’t need anymore black basketball players and entertainers. We need more black lawyers and doctors.” Although this is true, my problem with this is people acting like they don’t know WHY there aren’t more black doctors and lawyers. They actually avoid talking about WHY.

Another issue I have is that people who say this perpetuate the idea that black youth only want to be athletes and entertainers, which is absolutely NOT true AT ALL! That is a racist and stereotypical idea, whether you knew that or not. Just because you see more black athletes and entertainers on TV than you see black doctors and lawyers doesn’t mean anything. You can ask many black children what they want to be when they grow up and you will hear all kinds of different answers. You won’t hear JUST “athlete” or “entertainer”. TV is a LIE! Stop taking everything you see on there as the end all be all!

One reason why there aren’t more black doctors and lawyers is because going to college for these professions is incredibly expensive. Many black parents simply can’t afford to send their kids to college to become a doctor or lawyer. Scholarships and grants exist, yes, but they’re not always easy to get. And the ones that are easier to obtain don’t cover much of the cost.

Another reason, and this is the one that I feel people like to dance around the most, is that there is heavy racism in professions like these. People love pretending that racism doesn’t exist anymore. We hear way too many stories about how poorly the medical system treated black people throughout history and the present. We hear way too many stories about how poorly and unjustly the judicial system treated black people throughout history and the present. With all these stories that we hear, what makes you think they would make it easy for black people to come up in these professions?

It’s easier for a black person to become an athlete or entertainer than it is to become a doctor or lawyer. Many colleges and universities give full ride scholarships to black students to come play basketball of they’re good enough, but not many colleges and universities are giving full ride scholarships to black students to come study to become a doctor or lawyer.

Stop acting like you don’t know the real reasons why there aren’t more black doctors and lawyers. Everybody wants to talk about problems and issues in the black community, but no one wants to talk about the reason why the problems and issues exist in the first place. We will never find solutions to problems if we ignore the roots of the problems.

What we should be saying is, “Colleges and universities need to be more affordable and accessible for all people.” And “More things need to be done about racism, especially in the medical and judicial fields”.

If we want more black doctors and lawyers, the solutions will have to be that colleges need to be more affordable and obtainable. More needs to be done about filtering racism in these professions instead of simply pretending they don’t exist. We need to acknowledge these things or there will never be enough black lawyers and doctors.

We need to stop acting like going to college to become a doctor or lawyer is easy. We need to stop acting like black people simply aren’t choosing to become doctors and lawyers. There’s reasons why there aren’t more black doctors and lawyers and we know them all! Let’s stop lying about and/or ignoring this issue and start working to change things!

Are Black People Divisive?

Candace Owens tweeted that Juneteenth was “lame” and “divisive” and wouldn’t celebrate it and would celebrate the Fourth of July instead. Bill Maher hated that they played the Black National Anthem at this past Monday’s football game and called it “segregation”.

The problems with both of these statements is that these people and anyone who agreed with them either has zero sense of history or is outright ignoring and/or lying about it. Black people weren’t even considered citizens when the Fourth of July became a holiday. Black people were still slaves during that time!

Black people were also still slaves when the American National Anthem was written. The American National Anthem was written by Francis Scott Key. Who is Francis Scott Key? He was a slaveowner! And he was leader of the American Colonization Society, which sent freed slaves to Africa because that organization believed upper class white people couldn’t live amongst black people (Yet, they’re calling black people divisive? You support an anthem written by someone who was part of an organization that didn’t believe blacks and whites could live together. šŸ˜’). Even though he freed some of his slaves, he was anti abolitionist. He did not support immediate ending to slavery.

People are so adamant about a holiday and a song that didn’t have black people in mind at all when they were created, but they want to call black people “divisive” if they choose not to celebrate the holiday or stand for that song. And more than likely the people who created the holiday and the song are racists.

And it’s funny how so many people want to call black people “divisive” for wanting to celebrate Juneteenth and have their anthem included in sports events as well, but black people celebrate every holiday in the year with white people EVERY year. Black people always stand for the American National Anthem.

But white people and coon black people can’t celebrate ONE holiday with us. White people and black coons can’t support a song about our people ONE time. Who’s really the divisive ones? Which holiday and song is the real divisive one?

And why is it that America is allowed to celebrate their freedom from British rule, but black people aren’t allowed to celebrate their freedom from slavery? And before anyone says, “No black people living in America today were ever slaves, so there’s no reason to celebrate it”, we can say, “No American living today were ever under British rule”. So, by that logic, we shouldn’t be celebrating that, either.

Black people, STOP letting whites and coons call you divisive for wanting to like and celebrate something that’s for your people, especially if you celebrate everything else about every other group of people! You’re not dividing this country for wanting to celebrate Juneteenth and wanting to accept the Black National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice And Sing”, as well. You can do both of those things and still be accepting of other holidays and songs.

This country was already divided long ago! And it’s going to continue to be divided for a very long time because of the history this country has. It’s not something that’s going to easily go away. It’s not something you can just stop talking about. NEVER let anyone blame our people for that!

White people divided this country when they brought slavery. White people divided this country with racist laws that went on for centuries. White people divided this country when they tore black families apart during slavery when they sold children, husbands, and wives away from each other. White people divided this country when they literally put up signs telling black people that they weren’t allowed in certain places. White people divided this country when they literally invented the concept of race and decided to discriminate against people based off that.

Racist police officers divided this country when they beat and kill unarmed people. Not black people for protesting against it. White people are divisive when they have done racist things to black people for centuries. Not black people for talking about it.

America wants black people to “forget about and get over” slavery and all the racist history it has, but tells everyone else to never forget when something bad happens to America.

Black people, you should NEVER forget this country’s racist history towards our people! And you should NEVER trust anyone who tells you to do that, especially if they never forget about anything horrible that happened to them. Don’t let white people blame you for mess THEY created!

Stuff like this is exactly why it’s very important for every black person to KNOW THEIR HISTORY. So we can catch stuff like this. If we don’t know our history, we’re going to think white people are right when they call us divisive for these things when really they are lying and gaslighting. Read history books regularly! If you don’t have books, read history articles online. It doesn’t matter as long as you read it and never forget it! Teach your children to read history, too! Don’t gloss over or sugarcoat a single thing!

I understand white people calling black people divisive for stupid reasons because that’s the type of people they are. But black people should know better. If you call black people divisive for wanting to celebrate Juneteenth, or for any reason for that matter, especially if you never call white people divisive for anything that they do, you have forgotten about your history and hate your people!

The Police Aren’t Making Mistakes. They Know What They’re Doing!

We all know of all the stories in the news about police abusing or killingĀ  unarmed people. One of the things I’ve heard a lot the whole time these stories were in the news is that the police “need better training”; the reason why these shootings of unarmed people keep happening is because police aren’t “properly trained”. I don’t believe that police need better training at all when it comes to abusing and killing unarmed people.

I saw the police take Kyle Rittenhouse into custody without abusing or killing him and he had just shot and killed two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Dylann Roof killed nine people in a church in Charleston, South Carolina. Not only did the police take him into custody without abusing or killing him, they bought him Burger King! And the police officers weren’t even there when all those people stormed the Capitol! We all know how that would’ve went down if that was a whole bunch of black people doing that!

And for the people who like to use someone’s past or them being on drugs as an excuse to justify the police killing unarmed people, someone’s past isn’t an excuse for the police to kill people. They aren’t supposed to kill anyone because of what they did in their past. They aren’t supposed to kill people because they’re “on drugs”. If they can take armed people who just came from a murdering spree in without a problem, someone “being on drugs” shouldn’t even be an issue. People would rather make excuses and justify the police killing people instead of admitting that there’s a problem in the police force.

This whole “police need better training” crap is a lie created to make it look like these cops are making mistakes when they kill someone. It’s to make it look like they weren’t properly trained to safely diffuse a situation and bring someone in. They don’t need any training. They know exactly what they’re doing. They’re doing this stuff on purpose!

And don’t think for a second that the police would never do anything like that. There’s so many stories of cops doing foul things to people, especially black people, all throughout history. There’s stories of police planting false evidence, like drugs and guns, on people. There’s stories of police forcing innocent people to confess to crimes they didn’t commit. There’s stories of police brutality on people for minor offenses or sometimes nothing at all. There’s stories of police spraying people with fire hoses and sending dogs out to attack people. There’s stories of police throwing tear gas on and attacking protesters.

With all the stories we’ve heard about police all throughout history and still to this present day, why is it so hard for people to admit that the police force is corrupt? Why do people continue to make excuses for everything the police does wrong? Why do people get so mad at the people who are protesting against the police when they should really be mad at the police? They’re the ones causing all this unrest! If they stopped abusing and killing unarmed people, the protests will stop!

People Doing Gay Things, But Don’t Want To Identify As Gay

I remember about a year ago where Tank talked in an interview about how a man can have oral sex with another man and not be gay. I will share the video at the end of this post. But at the time, so many people were arguing and sharing how much they agreed or disagreed with his statement.

The people who agreed with his statement called the people who disagreed with his statement “homophobic” because they felt like people weren’t allowing them to explore their sexuality. Tank’s comments and these arguments made me realize that lots of people out there want to partake in homosexual acts, but don’t want to be called gay for it.

It’s not homophobic if a person calls someone else gay if they do or say a gay thing. It’s calling a spade a spade. If anyone is homophobic, it’s the people doing and saying gay things, but don’t want to admit that they’re gay. They are afraid of the label that comes with doing sexual things with the same gender. There’s a reason why they want to do gay things, but don’t want to be called gay.

And if you have to “explore your sexuality” to know whether or not you’re straight, then you’re not straight. You know if you’re straight or not! You know what you’re attracted to! You are part of LGBTQ if you feel like you have to question your sexuality. As a matter of fact, that’s what the Q in LGBTQ stands for—QUESTIONING (It also stands for QUEER). You might also be bisexual or pansexual.

If you want to explore your sexuality, fine. There’s nothing wrong with that. But at least be honest with yourself about it. Don’t say you’re a straight man when you just slept with or had oral sex with another man. Or say you’re a straight woman when you just slept with or had oral sex with another woman.

It’s a shame how people try to bend the definition of words to fit what they’re doing. If you’re strictly attracted to and sleeping with the same gender as yourself, then you are gay or homosexual. If you are attracted to and sleeping with people who are the opposite gender as yourself and the same gender as yourself, you are bisexual. If you are attracted to and sleep with people who are the same gender as yourself, opposite as yourself, and transgender, and the sexuality of a person doesn’t matter to you when it comes to who you’re attracted to, you are pansexual. If you strictly are attracted to and only sleep with people the opposite gender as yourself, then and only then, are you straight or heterosexual.

Everyone knows what these words mean. Stop acting like you don’t know and stop trying to twist and distort what it means. You lying to yourself about what these words mean doesn’t change what they mean.
