Black people today have such an apathy and complacent nature, we've become so accepting of degrading images of us, even DEFENDING and celebrating them, that it's impossible to start a revolution. Black people are too busy rationalizing their dysfunction to have a revolution. Revolution for what? No one wants anything to change! There's no doubt in my mind that we've de-evolved as a people since the days of the civil rights movement. There is no more thirst for knowledge; there is no commitment to integrity.
People don't even think for themselves any more. I can't tell you how many times that I hear people say, "Oh nooooo, violent movies and video games aren't bad for you, I watch them all the time and nothing's wrong with me," when every study that's been done on the effect of viewing violent images has proven that it desensitizes people to violence. That's just one tiny example of how people are steeped in their ignorance and not willing to see past their dysfunction. There are too many to count and there isn't anyone who is willing to challenge the status quo and speak out about the things that are detrimental to us because too many people love their dysfunction. Nobody except me, that is.
Want to know what's revolutionary thinking?
Black women straightening their hair is physically and psychologically damaging.
Black men are raised to be emotionally immature.
The psychological effects of slavery are so long lasting and pervasive they haven't even begun to be examined.
Homosexuality is natural and normal and homophobia is pathological
Christianity is in no way related to the study and pursuit of the Creator and it is damaging for people of African descent to hold on to those paralyzing beliefs.
I can back up all of my assertions with facts but the majority of people don't want to hear anything about , truth, facts, or revolution. They want to have a march and say, "Stop discrimination now," for a few days after a white person says something racist. We don't even have a clear picture of what discrimination and racism is, and how it affects us. The exact same people that want a revolution aren't even willing to put the blame on white people for our conditions. You can't have a revolution if you are afraid to place accountability on the culprits of generations of abuse without falling all over yourself to apologize for speaking up for yourself. You can't have a revolution if the only thing you know about Dr. King is "I have a dream."
You want a revolution? I got a revolution for you but no one is going to join the revolution because it goes against the current dementia that is accepted as norm. The days of sit ins and marches is over. Now is the time for real revolution.
