As I've intimated in past posts, The Cinematic Symbolism Blog is at the nucleus of a multifaceted, multi-media project.
With that said, I'd like to offer the readers of this Blog something in the way of a more visual take on the subject of casting out the self hatred that's so pervasive in our diaspora.
The video at the end of this post, Kem Love, is a representation, to me at least, of what Black people should be viewing on a daily basis; loving images of Black men and women who are dedicated to healing themselves and loving each other.
Now recently, I've noticed...and you might have too, that this Blog may look a bit different. Meaning, the fonts of this Blog (both the ornate and regular ones) might look a bit smaller...understand this was NOT my doing.
This has happened to me several times on YouTube, when someone, or someone Black, takes on or talks disparagingly about the white supremacist american social order, and has their Blog or YouTube channel manipulated in some way to dissuade them from continuing on with their message.
This is now happening here.
Sometimes I think there's more internet agents than regular people who actually view these Blogs...or view mine at least.
But understand, when you take on this white supremacist beast, this is what happens; there are consequences to speaking against the white elitist status quo, and this is just the beginning of my travails with them.
But rest assured, I WILL NOT BE MOVED!
By that I mean, they surely can take away this medium, but I'll always find a way to get out my message!
I understand what I'm going through here is exceptionally light stuff compared to what my ancestors encountered fighting for their basic human rights, but even though my Blog is small in stature, it's gotten the attention of some white fascist who's figured I've gone too far.
I didn't make up this white supremacist social order, I'm just reporting on its machinations. And if I can't do that here, I'll surely find someplace where I can; or I'll create my own space unencumbered by the likes of white western fascism.
And of course it won't be easy...but I'll always find a way to get it done!
Until then...here's my video 'Kem Love'; enjoy!
