Let's Be Real
*Disclaimer: Before I begin let me - - you know what? There is no disclaimer this week. This is for all those ghetto ass leeching mother f*ckers who are giving the rest of us hard working black people a bad name. Read it and weep because I'm talking about you.
Topic: Black People vs. Niggers
For years now, black people have had to endure countless atrocities because of our skin color. They faced tremendous odds and came out on top, proving that you couldn't hold us down. They fought for what they believed in and demanded what they deserved. After trial and hardships like no one would understand but another black person, we are only now getting our just due. And just when we thought we could finally put our past behind us and say look at all we've accomplished, who shows up to damn us all to hell and set us back three hundred years?
You guessed it. Niggers.
Notice that I am not using the 'a' at the end of the word. No. That is now a term of endearment, more affectionate than the previous insult. So I will not be using the term affectionately.
Niggers have found a way to make us all look stupid. They perpetuate every stereotype, and live up to the least expectations of soceity. They give everyone else a reason to hate the race as a whole. The only thing worse that being a nigger is an ignant one. Examples are as follows:
The list could go on and on and on but I'm sure you can fill in the necessary blanks. Be it a sell out socialite or a gold tooth wearing bum, ignance comes in all shapes and sizes. I knew it was alive and well when Condi Rice (who hails from Alabama, the most racist state in America) said at Rosa Parks funeral that she never experienced racism. I was ready to kick her in the face. WTF? Colin Powell spends so much time kissing ass that I'm not sure if he's really black or just one hell of a brown noser.
I bet a few of you are wondering why I put Sharpton and Jackson up there. The two of them, whom I unaffectionately nicknamed the Spokesperson and the Cheerleader for the Oppressed Black Man, respectively, are both sad excuses for leaders. They find a way to jump on every bandwagon known to man. Sharpton? 1987, Tawana Brawley, he was there. 1997, Abner Louima, he was there. 1999, Amadou Diallo. You guessed it. He was there. And wherever he is, Jackson is sure to follow. Although he might want to keep his business out of the streets. (I'm sorry Ms. Jackson. Whoo! I am fo' real...) The way I see it, if the two of them really had any pull and if they were really a threat they'd have been assasinated by now. They are hot air blowers. Pretty soon that steam is going to run out though, as soon as everyone else figures it out.
As for Mase and 'em, when did weaves and gold teeth become a way of life? Why is it that your slang makes you who you are? Am I the only person thoroughly insulted by the fact that Ebonics is accepted vernacular? Why is it that white children strive to be lawyer's and doctor's but the nigger's kids are still trying to fit rims on that Escalade? Why are you proud to be ghetto? That's a way of life? After all your ancestors did for you this is how you show appreciation? They fought and died. I know King would turn in his grave if he were alive today.
Put down the headphones and the remote and pick up a damn book. Educate yourself. Folks should be embarrassed that my man Djimon Honsou taught himself English for his role in Amistad. And he speaks it more fluently than folks who've been speaking English their whole lives. There's a problem with that.
My mama is one of the few proud black women left who can truly say her kids are going to be something. My brothers and I were not raised watching booty videos or listening to all the latest rap cuts. (Mind you, I can rip off any lyric to any 50 Cent song if asked but I can also identify Beethoven's 5th if asked. Ask any kid in my hood who Chopin, Bach or Mozart are and they'll ask if its liquor or weed) The point is there was equal balance. Why is it that your child knows all the lines to the hottest rap songs but s/he can't spell his/her own name?
Remember Bitches and Sisters off the Blueprint 2 album? Same thing applies. Black people strive to educate and better themselves. Niggers learn from thestreets and think that's acceptable. Black people work hard for what they have. Niggers leech off of you. Black people are outspoken and eloquent. Niggers are blissful in their ignorance.
I hate the fact that our race is divided down the middle by such idiocy. But as long people continue to think that their not wanting anything out of life is okay it will continue. Get off your ass and do something with yourself. Be on time for something. You don't need those rims, you need to pay your rent. Welfare is the lazy man's way out. Don't think of the unemployment line as a blessing, think of it as a chance to say, hey, I can be doing so much better than this. Have a dream, have a goal, stick to it. Realize that crack is only going to get you incarcerated or killed. You all saw Scarface, Blow, New Jack City, Paid In Full, State Property, you know how they end. That's the only way to go. You have a hoop dream, go for it.
Aspire to be great, to leave a mark. (Take that literally and I will slap you.) Don't live to be the next this or the next that. Live to be you. You'll feel much better that you did.
