but you all have to stop instilling this fear mentality into the minds and spirits of black males.
No amount of “playing the game” shucking and jiving, grinnin and skinnin,” and “just be humble” is gonna stop anti-black racists from trying to extinguish us.
YOu have got to allow boys to develop…
I really don’t understand this. How did a (presumably) black man completely miss the centuries of racism and oppression white people put us through and blame black females for these issues? White supremacy is to blame here, not black women.
stopped reading at females
Ok *Heavy Sigh* this is one of the major issues in the black community. When will we realize that blaming “light skin” black people, or female black people is just the same damn tactics that were used against black people by whites and other races from the very beginning. I mean really learn your history. That way you aren’t doomed to repeat it, and I don’t have to see ignorant ass shit in my feed. I will end here, but I leave you with this gif.
no. You fucking buffoon. Your ass is gettin caught up in who’s being blamed rather than who’s being affected.
My original post has been a major fuckin issue since black females realized white men kill black males they can’t break. What black females did, teaching their sons and brothers, etc was to try and increase their probability of survival by teaching us how to be less threatening.
This coping mechanism is flawed. It doesn’t work and has been turned against us. So quite frankly I don’t give a damn you feel some kind of way because my post adresses this issue. I care about the impact not your ego.
I originally wasn’t going to respond to you, but I have a younger brother who means the world to me and I feel like I owe it to him to respond to you. Also I don’t want you to further confuse lessons in adapting to the world around you as fear mongering. You do not live in a perfect world, though it is my hope that one day you will. However we both know that hopes are not realities, with that said I’ll dive in. I am a feminist, in that I believe in human rights and gender equality. I think that every person is responsible for their own actions no matter what others have done to them, and this is something I have told to my brother time and time again. My mom and every female (black or not) my brother and I have ever come into contact with have stressed to us the power of education and hard work. Anger and blame don’t fix years of oppression,but learning how to talk to people at their level of comfort is the way to truly begin change. So I hope that you’ll consider taking responsibility for yourself and learn of your heritage, so that you can bring about positive change in your community.
