It’s wild… black folks have this “Shhhh, white folks watching” mentality when it comes to speaking out on these issues, but they don’t give a damn white folks watching when they got it in for another black person, then the gloves come off. Black folks bear their souls on social media, are emotional, wear their feelings on their sleeves… we’ll post fight videos, “bitches ain’t shit” videos, “niggas ain’t shit” videos… we will get on social media and show our whole ass… there are entire channels, websites and platforms created by black people specifically to show us at our worse… We allow others to commodity the worst of our existence and call it entertainment. We worship our own who are complicit. WE show others how we feel about each other and how to treat us, then get mad when they treat us accordingly. Yes racism exists… and racists are gonna do what they do regardless of what we do. Our actions are used against us as justification.

The gender war… there is a growing number of black men who don’t value black women and black women who don’t value black men. Yet somehow black babies keep being born into this toxicity. Every day these groups get on online and bash each other. Black youtube is haven for this, although it exists throughout social media. A lot of it comes from the conscious community, people who are supposed to know better, but don’t. They have yet to realize how destructive this on so many levels. It’s unhealthy, it’s contributes to further destruction of our family structures and it gives the opposition a window into the black male/female dynamic…. all the ammo they need to further exploit, divide and conquer. As long as brothas and sistas are fighting each other, they’re not effectively fighting them.

Self hate is very real… when I say ‘self hate’ I mean seeing little value in black people or black lives as a collective. Emulating the oppressor. It stars at the top. Black leaders see little value in black people beyond votes. Black clergy see little value in black people beyond what they can put in a collection plate. Black nonprofits see little value in black people beyond the pain, suffering and deaths they can exploit for a grant.
