In the past few years, I've noticed how Black Africans, Jamaicans and Haitians, have waxed philosophic about how Black americans are the dumbest of our diaspora.
This always struck me as odd 'cause I hear them saying this, but when Barack Obama was elected president, I distinctly remember how a Jamaican co-worker of mine marked his calender with that date, saying it was 'history'. I also remember how many groups of Black Africans were literally celebrating in the streets back in the motherland, feeling it was their victory too.
And it never fails that when I remind people about Barack Obama's american presidency, how some Black person will ultimately say, well...he's not really Black. Well, consider this, the day Obama was elected, a white supremacist website, 'Stormfront', crashed due to all the traffic coming through it. A week after he was elected, 'teabaggers' rallied with high powered rifles slung over their shoulders just miles away from the white house. These same teabaggers, held picket signs saying Obama's plan was 'white slavery'; as if that's any different from Black slavery...you shallow caucasians. That and the fact that this president has gotten more hate mail than any other in history, tells me Barack is Black...whether he wants to be or not!
Anyway, when I was younger, there was a long avenue filled with retail stores several blocks from my house; and at one time, the owners of a good many of these convenience stores, were Jamaican and Haitian, and there might have been one Black African owned store as well. But, I didn't see one of these stores owned by a Black american. When I was older, I wondered why this was. And I hear the sentiments of these groups saying they come to america and pass Black americans by in terms of achievement all the time. Even though, like I said earlier, we do have a Black president in this country.
A couple of years after pondering this, due to my old neighborhood being gentrified, all the retail stores that were owned by Haitians, Jamaicans and Africans, are now owned by spanish and asian people; and again, Black americans couldn't seem to own one of these stores. And once more, the reason why alluded me. But being a little older, and a little more 'conscious', I found out the reason, and here it is...
I know I keep referring to the 'Black Wall Street' in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but this area represented Black americans doing everything right, as opposed to what we're doing today. In this area, we owned literally several hundred businesses, like restaurants, grocery stores, and like it says in the picture above, even a bus system; we created a thriving economy that rivaled whitey's...and mind you, this was in the early 1900's...POST-SLAVERY!
And again, it was so successful, that whitey bombed this area in 1921.
I'm reminding you of that to say this, the reason whitey will allow Haitians, Jamaicans and Black Africans to operate a business like a retail store before Black americans, is 'cause BLACK AMERICANS WERE THE ONLY GROUP OF BLACK PEOPLE WHO SHOWED WHITEY, ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA, THAT WE COULD BUILD AN ECONOMY THAT RIVALED OR POSSIBLY EVEN THREATENED TO TAKE OVER THEIR OWN!
And I'm saying this to illustrate the fact that, for the most part, Black Haitians, have been poor for centuries and are still poor, Black Jamaicans, have been poor for centuries and are still poor; and the overwhelming majority of Black Africans, have been poor for centuries...and are still poor. Beyond this, these groups come to america looking down on Black americans and treating white people like their gods! A lot of them don't realize how white fascists have made them so destitute in their native countries, that they had to leave just to make a living...that's why they're in america.
Now, with that stated, what I'm not saying is Black americans are better than these groups, 'cause we got tricked out of our economic power base(s) in this country to follow the agenda of 'integration'...and we've been beggin' ever since!
What I am saying is, Black americans and every other kind of Black person, needs to realize what we do have in common; and that's two things...one, we're all now dependent on white fascists for our food, clothing and shelter; and two, we've all been conditioned to hate ourselves and each other.
Ya' gotta' love these inbreds!
And once again, for any person saying I'm just telling people to hate whites, I'm saying that's a crock! My message is, let's get rid of the self-hatred whites have bred into us for decades, so we can work together.
Now, whitey will always tell us one of these groups is better than the other, this way they're always assured we have no unity...and ultimately, that's how they stay in power. If Black Haitians hate Black americans, and Black Jamaicans hate Black americans, and Black americans hate Black Africans, whitey sits back and laughs at us, 'cause he knows 'Willie Lynch' was right. I've actually seen Black americans spit at Black Africans who were working in a convenience store, 'cause they weren't 'one of us'. That's lunacy.
So, what's the solution?
Again, getting rid of our collective self-hatred, is the answer to all our problems!
And once again, I'm suggesting we do this with meditative techniques at the subconscious level, but in order to even get that far, we need to realize 'consciously' how we've been conditioned to hate ourselves more than any other kind of person on the planet for nearly two decades in our collective school systems...wherever we're located!
And we need to realize the conditioning we got to hate ourselves, is ten times worse than any other ethnic group gets in the world!
I mean, could you imagine if Black Haitians, Jamaicans, Africans and americans worked together? We'd all be rich!
The main tenet of white supremacy is every single Black person must feel like they're the worst kind of person walking the face of the earth...that's the game.
Now, in order to get rid of our self-hatred, there are a few methods that will work, but one that ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT!
And, I'll share that method with you in my next post. So stay tuned...
