See, I’m about to leave, but I’ll be late just answer this question that I didn’t answer for a LONG TIME.
Being Black is like being a half-desirable pet up for adoption.Some people want you, but most can’t imagine what it’d be like having you in the house. Get me? No?
Okay, so there’s the whole slavery thing no one ever wants to bring up. Seriously, but then again it’s the same with any painful issue, pushing it away like a bitch. It sucked, and that’s an understatement. What it really did was place a massive complex on black folk for years to come. You see it now, and even my mom has it. The most interesting thing is that it’s not only just the whole “secondary race” thing, and to explain that, it’s like when you play a game and you choose a race, but all the real perks seem to go for the Light Elves, but the Dark ones seem to be like playing in hard mode. It’s part fear, part rage, part subservience. Like what you told me about what you dad said, something along the lines of colored folk not wanting to serve other colored folk from envy. The more I try to figure it out the worse it gets. There’s the media, putting down black folks left and right, showing off when a jewish or white kid goes missing, yet the black, hispanic and even the asian kids go missing and not a fucking thing on the news. I wish they’d have a section on this particular media practice, so it’d be like, ”Three black, 4 hispanic , and 2 asian kids were brutally murdered today by a crazy white wealth business owner, And Not a Fuck was given.” ”That’s right Sarah, but the one jewish kid who was lost for a whole 3 hours will get special coverage and a mention every 30 minutes along with a WHOLE SEGMENT about keeping your kids safe” The Media, whatever. There’s Mcdonalds trying to market to black folk, because they know they can. There’s the Black women who believe that black men don’t love black women, which is an experience and growth issue. Then there’s a bit something. Egypt. See, The whole middle east and east Africa in general, have black people. There’s the whole dispute of the noses on the sphinx and what not, and you know fuck that. I’m not trying to claim shit, I’m just saying, if it’s in Africa, it’s African. Yes? Alright. There’s the mass ignorance that floats around like plague in the middle ages. No one wants “niggers”. The whole oreo thing, I’ll tackle later, I’ve got too much to say.
So, It’s a big pot of fucked up shit, with a bit of really good organic rosemary. In the end, it’s just a pot pf fucked up shit, with some rosemary.
Whoever is most important. Group, Parents, Partners, World, Individuals, Nations, Businesses, Political Parties. But, it’s an important part in life to make sure you know this answer, at least somewhere in yourself.
