"The most dangerous place for a Black man to be is with a black woman."
"Are black women the biggest enemy of Black men?"
"The most classless, vile and unladylike women are..."
"Systas can't keep their legs or their mouths closed."
"Sistas are made of weaves, tattoos and bad attitudes."
These are but a few of the sentiments Uncle Tommy has spewed on his several YouTube channels.
Tommy has basically made a career out of slandering black women; and he has hordes of them and Black men, hanging on his every word.
I should know, I was one of 'em.
But after hearing these sentiments repeatedly, and hearing Tom say how Black people in general, lack the capacity to think critically, I came to my senses and dumped this self-hating Uncle Ruckus bastard.
But if Uncle Tommy knew what I've recently found out, he'd stop his rants about black women tommorrow.
And what I found out is this...YOU CAN'T HATE ANY FACTION OF THE BLACK DIASPORA, AND NOT HATE YOURSELF FOR BEING BLACK.
And what I mean is, if you're a Black man who hates black women, guess what? You're gonna' hate yourself consciously or subconsciously for being Black.
Just like if you're a Black elder who hates the Black youth, you're gonna hate yourself for being Black; and if you're a Black African who hates Black americans, you're gonna hate yourself for being Black...etc.etc.
AND THERE IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE.
Now, understand what I'm saying; I'm not suggesting that as a Black man or woman you have to love and trust every single Black person you meet...that's impractical. I'm just saying again, you can't hate any one group of Black people without it affecting you.
Now, if Tommy knew this, he'd rethink his whole approach to dealing with black women and Black people altogether. 'Cause if we know nothing else about Tom, we know he loves himself above anything or anyone else.
With that being said, here's why Uncle Tom will never come to this conclusion.
It's because Black people like Tommy actually like feeling inferior to white people.
They're comfortable feeling subordinate to them, because they've been so conditioned to think white people created everything known to mankind, that to them, it feels intrinsically right to let them have their way. Even when it hurts them and their kind.
I remember talking to a Black co-worker of mine, and this person was a mature Jamaican man; we talked about a white co-worker who was obviously dim-witted and while we verbalized this to each other, this man said to me: "Yeah, that guy's an idiot. But I shouldn't say that, because he is white after all."
I thought my head was gonna' explode.
I couldn't believe what I'd just heard.
There was another instance where I worked along side a mature African guy who would always boast about his 'manly' status. He would question other men about how sexually active they were and tell black women he couldn't be with them because he's such a 'big African man'.
I remember one day, some white man rejected him in some form or fashion, and this 'big African man' started balling like a baby. He was so conditioned to love them, that he was literally brought to tears by some pale-skinned inbred because that person disliked him.
Now, I'm not casting aspersion on Black Jamaicans or Africans, but this is how conditioned Black people on the whole are to hate themselves and love whites. And because we spend the majority of our lives mired in this kind of conditioning, it feels totally natural.
Now, what this makes me think of, is brotha Gil-Scot Heron's hyper-prescient and timeless quote: "The revolution will not be televised."
This proverb is beyond pithy 'cause it's the stark raving truth. And in it's truest sense, especially pertaining to Black people, the greatest revolution isn't going to happen in the streets, or on social media, or anyplace where it can be publicly broadcast.
It's gonna' happen in our minds.
'Cause until you and I do the subconscious work to recondition ourselves out of the white supremacist mindset we've had force fed into us, we'll always love whites more than we love ourselves.
And for those of you who want to include brown people in our revolution, understand, they love white people just as much, or possibly more than we do. And consciously or subconsciously, they hate us just like white people do...an again, possibly more so.
So understand, we have to do the meditative, subconscious work necessary to truly love our Black selves and each other again.
And for those Black people who think it's all about finance, remember, the Black 'nuclear' family was more intact when we as a people had less than we do now.
So I'm saying to every brotha and sista out there, the subconscious mind is the real battlefield. And I've begun building my arsenal with a meditative regimen that'll help me fight off the truest enemy of our people...and that's Black self-hatred.
Now, might our revolution involve taking to the streets in the future? Possibly. But again, until you're mentally ready to defend yourself and your communities, you won't take up arms to protect yourself anyway.
And I for one, intend to be ready to defend myself.
