there are people who use social media to learn and grow.
there are those who use it to inform and share.
there are those who have a more nefarious motive.
this is for the trolls
I think that BARKLEY IS A OOFTAH!
completely co opted and ruined by internalized racism.
He is so oppressed that mentally he has become the oppressor himself and like others of his ilk. he speaks to Massa using the pronoun as an extension of himself, as if he doesn’t exists without his beloved Massa.
Are we sick? is our house on fire?
Not realizing that Massa don’t care about him or his kind. He is just another piece of property.
In the face of black pride, action and unity.
black people who are in the same condition as Barkley react as viscerally and negatively as do the whites who cling desperately to the myth of supremacy and the advantages of privilege without which they cant maintain their mediocre existence.
the fact is that Black People in America are oppressed. my entry into this country was a bill of sale. and many cling to the notion of blacks as property and black people as less than human. ( and dont get me started on the internalized racism in the black community related to complexion and hair texture) For oppression to work, you have to believe that it is valid, ultimately accept the badge of inferiority.
strip a people of their language, and history and then tell them they are inferior because they have no culture.
strip a people of their language, and history and then tell them they are inferior when they create a new culture.
deny a people access to education and tell them that they are inferior because they are uneducated, ignorant, stupid
deny a people access to economic opportunities and tell them that they are inferior because they are poor.
use brutality to control a people, via organized (KKK and other vigilantes) and militarized (state action, via police, national guard and military) force and tell them that they are violent when they resist that brutality.
Dear TROLLS and OOFTAHS
I get that you find Black pride frightening. you feel that it is an attack on whiteness.
let me disabuse you of that notion.
my being pro BLACK doesnt make me ANTI white.
My being ProBLACK makes me Anti white privilege, anti racism, anti myth of white supremcy and all organizations, institutions and individuals that support and enforce racism white privilege and the mythology of white supremacy.
and if you stand with them you are ANTI BLACK AND ANTI- ME
