First off I have to give my condolences to the Martin family. I can’t imagine how it feels to lose a son. With that said, it’s time to wake up Black people. No one should be surprised that Zimmerman got off. As soon as I saw that the jury was going to be all White, I already knew what was going down. We all know this case was just done to put on a show. The prosecution clearly didn’t go at Zimmerman as hard as they could have. The prosecution “star” witness was a walking stereotype. Fat, sassy, ghetto and can’t talk. That’s all the jury needed to see. The defense played right into those stereotypes. They even had a Black woman on the defense team laughing and joking with Zimmerman during the trial. Game recognize game dominate society. Putting that 34-year-old intern on the team was clearly game. You guys did a great job. All the Black people trying to defend her please kill yourself. I don’t want to hear how this was a come up. Come up from what? She’s not even a lawyer. She’s an intern at a law firm. We’re playing checkers and the dominate society is playing chess. The game is very real right now. This is the new Jim Crow. A message is being sent to Black people right now. The game is so deep that a lot of us don’t even realize what’s going on. You have to remember the new thing to do is to just deny racism still exist. Racism what’s that? The President is Black how could we be racist? You guys have Oprah, Jay-z, Rappers and Athletes. Again, that’s chess. These people are paraded around for everyone to see. This makes Black people think they’re doing better than they really are. When the 13th Amendment was passed in December 1865, Black people owned 1/2 of 1% of all the wealth in America. 148 years later we STILL OWN 1/2 of 1% of all the wealth in America. Pulling our resources together is a must! I don’t see anyone talking about this. It’s going to take a real group effort for Black people in America to not be treated as second class citizens. So what can Black people do? I have a few suggestions.
1. Practice Group Economics- Black people in this country have major spending power. We spend billions of dollars every year with people who don’t have our best interest in mind. It comes down to Black people not trusting other Black people. A Black person will give their money to anyone else but another Black people. This comes back to the different strokes syndrome a lot of Blacks suffer from. You really don’t want to be independent; you just want to be accepted. Black people will brag about being the first Black person at their job, neighborhood, and country club. That’s that old slave mentality; that White daddy complex. That’s some real sick shit we have not gotten over. Independence over acceptance.
2. Open Our Own Schools- This is very important for Black people in America to better themselves. Education is A MUST. Education is your foundation. We have a lot of parents that are ok with just sending their kids to school and letting the school babysit. This is one of the main reasons why Black children are being railroaded into special education programs. A lot of people don’t know that the school gets extra money for every child in special education. The school doesn’t have any incentive to take your child out of special education. Having a child in special ed that doesn’t need it messes with their self esteem. They will always think something is wrong with them even though they are perfectly fine. With having our own schools, we can control what our children learn and who teaches them. Also, parents need to be more involved.
3. Have Our Own Distribution Outlets- Black people need to control the images people see of us. I just read about a recent study that showed Black children have low self-esteem from watching TV. Is anyone surprised by this? When you turn on television, all you see are Black people doing dumb shit. The hot topic right now is the myth of Black on Black crime. The dominate society keeps saying Black people should be more concerned with Black on Black crime. If Zimmerman was Black, no one would care. This is clearly just another deflection tactic. I get why the dominate society is doing this. What kills me is Black people are actually believing this shit. I hear Black people saying, “We are killing each other so that’s a big problem.” Kill yourself for saying that. What the dominate society doesn’t tell you is that 84% of White people killed every year are killed by other Whites. I don’t see everyone going crazy over this. Is that now considered White on White crime? Every race kills each other at the same rates. You only hear about Black people. Crime is bad and I’m not defending it in any way. All I’m saying is to not fall for the Jedi mind trick Black people. Recognize the game for what it is. Even when the dominate society talks about this case, you notice they always have a Black person cooning it up. They put them in front of the camera to talk real crazy about other Black people. A lot of Black people are scared right now. They’re scared to challenge the dominate society. They think if they coon it up, they will be accepted. We need our own distribution outlets so we challenge all this stuff. With the negative images of Black people in this country, what White person can’t kill a Black person and say that their life wasn’t in danger?
What we have to remember is that this is not about hating another group of people. I don’t want anyone using this to justify any hate. Other groups know what’s going on. Some speak up, some don’t. It’s not their job to wake us up to it. We have to do it ourselves. Until we take these steps, nothing is going to get better. Unfortunately, it’s only going to get worst. Black people what are you going to do about it?
