~*HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF.......*~
"S.O.B. (Socially Offensive Behavior)", "College Hill", "Flavor of Love", "Hell Date" and so on. MTV Jams or VH1 Soul. What do I find? Black brothers talking about "bling bling" or "big pimpin." Why? Or I see my black sistas shakin it or lettin it all hang out while these same black brothers are pouring liquor over them or dry-humping them. What purpose does this, which you are doing, serve? Where are you going? What are you teaching the children? If my baby cousins can Pop, Lock and Drop It but they can't even spell "hello", then we have a problem my good people. Even though it was long before I was born, I remember there was a time when black artists tried to uplift their people, and it wasn't all about partying all the time. A time when James brown said it loud, because he was black and proud of it. If Martin Luther King Jr. was still alive today, do you think he could say it loud and still be proud? How could anyone be proud to say "I'm black" with the way we are letting people represent us?
In this same time period, Marvin Gaye asked what is going on with my people? Why are so many dying and being sent to jail? If he was still living, I know he would be just as confused, if not more, about where we are going.
Stand up and be loud, be proud. Represent your race--- for the better. Show them we are a strong people and that we have overcome slavery, Jim Crow, lynchings, and being "niggers".
But my people, how can we, when we are constantly refering to ourselves and "niggas" and "b****es". I don't want to be "tha baddest b****" and I sure AS HELL don't want to be a nigga. I am an intelligent, respectable young woman and I don't deserve that. Calling someone a nigga demotes them from the status of human being to something 110x of lesser value and worth. When the master would force his slaves to work and he would whip them, he wasn't whipping human beings because to beat another human being is hard, so we were less than human. We were niggers.
Those of us who are gang-banging and shooting up people because of a drug deal gone wrong, or because you looked at some one the wrong way, you know you're wrong. How can we escape stereotypes when niggas keep pulling us back? Recently, a stolen car was pulled over for speeding in Brooklyn. The people inside didn't want to be caught so they shot at the officers. One Asian who was shot in the arm and the other White and was shot twice in the face. He died.
The men were caught, because in their car was a bucket of chicken that was used to track their DNA. Now I'm not saying chicken is bad cuz I can't lie, it's good. The bad part is the three men in the car were African-American. Who is gonna break our chains and free us from our 21st century slavery? You're just showing the white people and everyone else we really are niggers.
It is so much easier to kill a nigga than is to kill a human being, much less a black brother or sister. "Yea let's go kill dat nigga". To kill a black brother is far more difficult, if not impossible. Black brothers are strong and don't let anyone stop their fighting spirit. Niggas are ignorant, illiterate and easy to bring down. The part that really makes the two different is the fact that niggas like to be ignorant and illiterate. Black brothers and sisters are strong because they have the history of all those other black brothers and sisters who fought for them. Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and all the others who died fighting the struggle for freedom and equal rights. Niggas have no true foundation to build on, because they have either forgotten it or choose to ignore it so they can be "ballin". They have no positive history to lift them higher. No souls of power from the past pushing them forward, because instead of staying niggers, those souls fought and became black soldiers. Niggas are not black brothers and sisters.
So you're reading this and you're saying, "I'm just saying it to my friends cuz it means yea, we're cool we're boys" Let me ask you this then. What if one of your white friends says it. It's offensive and you get pissed right? But he/she is your homie, your friend. Basically you're telling me that it's okay to demean and diminish the being of of a fellow black person because you're both black? I think I'll pass on doing that. Honestly, when anyone calls me a nigga I get very offended, and when I hear someone I love or respect say it, it hurts me, and changes the way I can look at them and think about them.
