Why I Am Giving Up Negroes In 2002!!
I am soo tired of Negroes!!!!!
I have had enough of:
A. The 'I believe everything white people tell me' negroes. Damn, GOD gave you a brain for a reason and it wasn't so your head would not cave in when you put headphones on. Use it once in awhile, you may grow to like it.....
B. 'Their ice is colder than ours negroes.' My GOD in heaven, we got people who WILL NOT FOR ANY REASON do business with people who look like them. What is that all about? Is your self-esteem that low that anyone who looks like you will automatically have an inferior product? Please consult a therapist, ASAP!!
C. 'Black people and African people do not get along Negroes.' Please cut the foolishness and make a new friend and stop listening to divide and conquer tactics of the oppressor.
D. 'The Hispanics ain't for s*** negroes.' See C.
E. 'I like what your organization has done, but never mind it's almost 100 years old and you are doing great work, I am going to steal your information, put my name on it and call it something new' Negroes!! How disrespectful can you get? Your ancestors shed blood and lost lives creating these organizations. They did it so that you could use them as a stepping stone and move from a position of advance so that your children could advance as well. Now here you come, a Johnny-come-lately and you think the elders of these organizations are inadequate or past their prime? Take time and listen to or walk with them, they have a lot to share. Do this and you will see, as I do, that while you can and probably will enhance what the organization is about, yours is not an original thought, and to suggest such a thing is very insulting.
F. 'I am gonna treat you any kind of way I want, cause you a N*gg* like I am Negroes'. Oh No , see,,,, #1,. I am not a N*gg* and you and I will have some issues if you call me that horrible word!! #2. You got some issues with self-esteem and self-love and you transferring that mess to me? No, I am not having that!!!
G. 'I will run interference to defend some one who don't give diddly about me, against my own people Negroes'. How ignorant can you be?
H. 'I don't care what you say,, the massa been mighty good to me Negroes'. I hope you enjoy it when you burn in hell with your massa!!!! Don't be surprised when your massa kicks you to the curb when we no longer pay you any attention. You see your 'worth' will be nil and that's all massa can use of you, your worth to the Black community. When we finally take you to the edge of the village, don't be shocked to see your massa walking away from you as well.
I. The We's Negro. i.e., 'We's sick boss?' This is somewhat on the flag wavers. Those Blacks who think they are included in the American dream. Malcolm said we didn't have a dream, we had a nightmare. I agree. Wake up!!!
J. The 'My Ego is soo outta proportion, it's in charge Negroes'. You know you really need to check that mess. It will cause you to self-destruct and I will be on the side lines watching,, Believe it!!
K. The 'It's all about me Negroes'. I hate to burst your bubble, but it is NOT about you. It never has been and it never will be. It's about the collective. You see, long before you were a glimmer in the eyes of your parents, millions of Black people died so that you could have the chance to be as selfish as you are. As the Elders say "If you don't stand for something, You'll Fall for anything!!!!" Check yourself and do it soon.
L. The 'I am so miserable in my life that in order for me to feel better, I must tear your down Negroes'. To see this is actually a shame. That person is so unhappy, they don't see joy in anything or anyone. What a waste of the precious time you have on the earth. Don't waste it with a lot of foolishness. Get a grip, do something. Do something you've always wanted to do, and stop sitting around nagging and picking all of the time!!
M. The 'I am better than you Negro' get on my last nerve. What makes a person think they are better than anyone else? The Holy Qu'ran says the best are those who keep their duty to ALLAH. What makes you think you are better? Schooling, money, a job, where you live? I hate to be the one to tell you, but you are in error, grave error. There is no one who is greater than another, some have more or less material items, some have more or less artistic ability, some have more or less formal education, but all are equal and are to be treated and respected as such.
N. One would think the 'Color Struck Negroes' would have died of natural causes by the year 2001, but alas, no, we are still cursed with them. I never could understand that light is right madness, but still I see and hear it. Please see M.
When I started this list of the Negroes I am kicking to the curb in 2002, I had no idea the list would be this long. What a family, huh? 30 years later and our inter-family skills are still lacking. Most of us do not want to think we still have these problems and that we have 'advanced'. How can one advance in the world when we have foolishness at home?
