My question to you is, does being born in the Union make you apart of the union?
What’s happening in Black America Today?
They are actually charging us to look like them and it has gotten so bad, we’re charging each other to look like them. And if you don’t look like them, you are denied by one and ostracized by your own kind.
Is that you can’t read, can’t write, can’t speak, can’t understand or is that you just can’t read, write, and understand their language, their ways? Did/do they show any compassion for you or do they call you illiterate? Why were Black Americans considered illiterate and were they justified in this label?
Most don’t know they’re being forced to look like them because they have been so ingrained they feel it is normal to have to do all those things you don’t want. Or they’re justified by selling their souls to get what “they” have. Our standard is their standard and we fear adopting our own.
Some might ask what do you mean, nobody is forcing you to look like White America, but I beg to differ. First, Black Americans were denied and treated less than human. Then in a quest for equal human rights, we were downgraded to civil rights and there were never fully acknowledged. It is during our struggle to be treated as human beings is how we were tricked to look like them. I say look like them because it was their standards black people were and still are required to meet in order to be treated as human beings.
Are you illiterate because you don't understand a foreign language?
Today, money has become the standard as to whether or not Black Americans are recognized as human beings and then even though you may now be recognized, you’re still not considered equal. If they do not consider people like Shirley Chisholm, MLK, President Barack Obama… as equal, why do you think they would consider you as equal?
Why would you want to be validated by anyone who treats you less than human? Why would you want to assimilate with anyone who would treat you as inferior and themselves as superior? What happened to Black America yesterday is still happening to Black America today; accept today we’re just as negligent as they are.
