I saw this post on Facebook and i decided to link to it here. It has some great points.
Are Black Americans Stupid?
Here’s a quick preview:
I have been out of America for years, now. I can honestly say that when you leave American society, your mind and emotions began to heal. Your actions and thoughts begin to correct themselves. When you don’t watch the bs on TV, eat fast food, or listen to brain dead music on the radio, slowly, your “negro” programming wears off. Your taste buds change. Even the smell of your skin.
I met a rasta a few years ago at a bar. We sat for a while, had a few drinks, and in the middle of the conversation, he told me that I had the mind of a white man.
What the hell!?
I’m the most militant, pro-black person I know. How could he say that? I was offended. Years later, I understand what he meant. Before I get into that, let’s talk about MOST black people in America.
Niggas love being niggas, So much so, that they strive to be REAL niggas. They take pride in saying,”I am a real nigga”. Really? That was your goal in life? To be a real nigga?
I hope my followers will read this with intelligence and discretion. I don’t agree with everything the author said but i agree with a lot of it.
First of all, yes black people are racist. They can be very racist. Our racism comes from ingrained anger and a constant feeling of being oppressed. That isn’t a excuse for being a racist or a bigot. Just the facts. Even i have some racism and prejudice in my heart and i spend some time trying to get rid of it. It’s impossible since i am human of course, but at least i acknowledge it and try to curb it. Now as far as this election goes i am not voting for Obama, i just can’t. Obama’s policies have failed and the man has proven to be a empty suit or sorts. Now Romney ain’t much better in my opinion either.
What insults me are the claims from whites and blacks on the Left that is that if you don’t support Obama then you’re a racist. Wasn’t the very election of Obama supposed to herald in the new age of a Non-racist America? Apparently not, since the racist accusation has been going on since the man’s first year in office.
What is also offensive to me in some ways is that a large number of Black Americans are voting for Obama purely because he’s black, not based on policy or beliefs. In fact, many will push aside their beliefs just to vote for Obama. The selling of the proverbial soul as it is, just to give the ‘black man’ one more term. It really shines a light on how easily lead we are as a race.
In the end what makes me worry that when the next black nominee for president comes along Black America will blindly vote and follow even it said nominee drives the nation off a cliff. And what will Black America do when the country falls apart under said man’s leadership, expect to be coddled and bailed out of course. What will be truly sad is the sense of betrayal many of them will feel when their ‘great black hope’ fails to save them from the fires of their own folly.
Well I’ve been moving for about three weeks now. Although i have been living at my new place since two weeks ago. It’s kinda hard to explain but i have been slowly moving things in. Unfortunately i do not have a internet connection there as of yet, so i have to come to my parents place if i want to use the computer, and that is about a 10 minute plus drive at times. So i don’t think i’ll be here a lot. Now to other business.
We’ve been speaking about making a nudist website for people of color. Well I looked around and found out that there are several already set up and they are all dead. But i came up with a great idea. For now…this blog can be be our meeting spot. This is something i can easily maintain with out a lot of fuss or muss. Spam cam easily be regulated and people who we don’t want can be kicked out. I’ll see what i can do about setting up a separate page on this blog for nudist gatherings and people of color meeting up. If that is not practical or doesn’t work, then i already have another idea that i know will work.
Well according to a number of people being in the nude is equated with sex. Well that seems silly in a way but it also very true. Lets be honest, how many people want to have sex with their clothes on? No one i know of. But nudity can also be acquainted with bathing, tanning and a host of other things. For me i am of two minds about the nude form. It can be a sexual object as well as a object of beauty. But most of all it’s just an object.
The human body is the human body, weather it be clothed or nude it does not change that fact. And yet we are much more scared of nudity in a sexual context then we are scared or worried about sexual contexts in our advertising, movies and television. Advertisers no longer hide the fact that they know that sex sells, in fact they almost revel in the fact. Has anyone seen the Firestone Tire commercial where a group of dancers are dancing in falling water? The women are wearing white and it is obvious that they have nothing on underneath. But the camera and angles are set so you don’t truly see anything. But why?
Later Hardee’s put out a commercial with a women in a scantly clad bikini laying and provocative rolling all over a car while she moaned and groaned as she was eating a cheeseburger. For those of us who know what satire is; immediately got the joke. The joke was simple, “If your product is truly good, then why do you need a half naked woman to sell it? If your product is that good then it’ll sell weather you use sexual imagery or not. Now Hardee’s caught some flack over the commercial but it proved it’s point and it spawned several other commercials who made satire of the “sex sells” mindset. And yet to be quite honest, we still don’t complain enough if we are so upset about sex and nudity.
I guess part of my view on sex and nudity comes from dealing with nude models. You’d be surprised how many models anger and piss you off with their eccentrics. After a while no matter how beautiful they are their attitudes or the difficulties in dealing with said model make her as ugly as all get out. A great looking body can never cover up a ugly personality.
But for all the life of me i cannot still figure out why Black America is so hateful toward its own nakedness. I have had a terrible time finding amateur models of the Afro-American/Black persuasion. They seem to be totally frightened of posing nude. And those that are not are generally not the type i wish to deal with. But i still don’t get it. One of my original models, Norma had to put her clothes on within 1 minute of me stopping the shoot. It didn’t matter if i was going to start right back up in three minutes, she had to put her clothes on again. I have to admit she infuriated me with this. It was like she was obsessive with it, and when i asked her why she just claimed that she felt evil, wrong, and ugly when she was nude. I gave up trying to convince her otherwise. I’ve come to realize that trying to change a person’s perception of self is extremely hard unless you brainwash them.
As a guy i find it kind of insulting that TV thinks half naked women are o.k. but not men. In softcore porn if any of the male’s genitalia shows then it gets a X rating right off the bat. So what’s wrong with a exposed male penis? Well we’ve been having that conversation in the Clothes Free forums for over a year now. We have a lot of answers but no real solution. But most of all we seems to have a lot of feminists who think a erect male penis is a sign of evil. I think that is the most idiotic and sexist thing i have ever heard in all my life. But enough about that.
I hope one day i can walk down the street in the nude if i want and no one will be shocked. I hope that one day i can live in a nudist community without every white person in their 40’s on up looking at me like i am some kind of gargantuagn dicked predator coming to scoop up their wives and daughters. If you have to worry about that then that means you have no faith in yer wife or your daughter. Although i will admit i chuckle whenever i think about such a thing.
Well it is all said and done! I voted McCain of course. But i am proud that we now have a new black president! As an African American i wonder now how we in Black American will face tomorrow. Will we get better or will we continue down the path of self-destruction. There is no excuse for us now! I can only hope for the best for my country now. And pray things get better! *sigh* I have some other things weighing heavy on my heart though. I’ll have to deal with them. *sigh* Well i need to cheer up.
When i heard what Jesse Jackson said he wanted to do to Obama’s anatomy I was shocked beyond all belief. My first thought was, “Jesse Jackson, what the fuck is wrong with you, man?” I mean this has to be the crab barrel mentality at it’s worst. But worst of all he was talking about doing the exact same thing that white males had been doing to black men for years, yet Jesse whispered so candidly about doing the same to Obama. Now i ain’t no fan of Obama, politically, but the man has been addressing a number of concerns in the Black community for years, and yes i know Jesse said it before too…well he kinda said it but no body got the message…heh. Almost sorry for the bit of humor there.
But back to the seriousness at hand. Why did Jessie Jackson say this? Jealousy. Pure jealousy. That’s all it is. Why? Because Obama is going to all of these black churches and is speaking out about how black men need to return to the home and take care of the children they father. Now Jessie has supposedly been saying this for years and feels that Obama has no right to take his place and speak on such matters.
But I also sense one other reason for his comments. Jessie probably feels that Obama is doing this for pure political gain and that Obama doesn’t truly care about the black race. That is what I think the other reason for his comments are.
P.S. Sorry for the lateness of this post but i have been busy and didn’t have a lot of time to write
