Dear fellow black people I know we have had a rough past but we should not let the past determine our future. They say that children live what they learn but it is time that we stop believing some of the things we were taught. For example during slavery the white masters tried to engrave in our minds that we were bad people. Today that image is projected in many of the things we share on social media. This may be an exaggeration on my part but about 95% of the post and videos posted and shared by black people depict black people in a negative manner.
The white master used to bring the slaves together in public and make them watch other slaves being beaten now we make videos of us beating our children and post them for the world to see that our children are bad and need public humiliation. We portray ourselves as people who are constantly at war with one another; every fight has to go on video so it can be shared with the rest of the world. We never miss on opportunity to show the world each day that our men are thugs, gangsters, deadbeats and lazy bums and then we wonder why they get treated accordingly. We portray our women as low class, loud mouthed and rachet with just ass and boobs and no brains.
We are so much more than the images we constantly share. The problem is only a few will share the positive stories but the negative ones are shared by millions. People don’t get to see the positive things we do because we rarely share those. My fellow black people we fail to understand that white folks judge us by the very images that we portray to them. When will we wake up and see that we are our own worst enemies. My fellow black people there are good and bad people in every race we are not the worst so stop telling the world that we are. Stop sharing those negative videos.
