"WHEN BLACK MEETS BLACK, THEN COMES THE END OF THE WAR!"
Is brotherhood a liabilty?
Not with me, it ain't.
So far when a brother needed me, I have come through.
Of course, with SOME brothers, brotherhood IS a liability because they will lust after your woman, covet your possessions, and/or talk behind your back.
Let me explain:
this photo is from 1863.. and it expresses the idea that Africans in America are so familial with one another that they cannot fight against one another. The picture shows Northern and Southern soldiers meeting on the battlefield.. and it says that they won't fight one another.
Well, we all know that's not true.
The Crips, the Bloods, the many black thugs and gangstas, and the wars between many hip hop artists and rappers have proved that.
As far as that 1863 picture...I don't know WHAT it means.
It appears that the artist just wanted to make some racist stereotypes and call a black man "Sambo".
I'm guessing the liability lies with whites, correct? That is, brotherhood recognized between blacks would mean an end of whatever means they use blacks for, an end of the war they have blacks waging against themselves, and the beginning of mass terror for whites all around?
Yeah.. I think that image implies all of that. It also reveals quite a bit about the cultural context of america during the Civil War.. meaning.. the idea floated today about the Civil war being about setting Africans free, I don't believe became popular until history was rewritten decades later. I never believed it would have been sold that way to the public back during that time. Why should they care about Africans?..
I honestly can't believe that's still such a popular idea; doesn't even sound like it makes sense, yet this is what is taught in schools, even black schools or I should say, especially black schools.
Just my opinion. Africans were engaged in tribal wars LONG before the invasion of the white man, so I believe that some so called "african americans" will dislike certain other so called "african americans" based on "tribal instinct".
The picture says:
THE BLACK CONSCRIPTION
"WHEN BLACK MEETS BLACK, THEN COMES THE END OF WAR"
Well "black met black" LONG before africa was invaded by the white man but that didn't put an end to war.
So your question "Brotherhood a liability" was about The Civil War, specifically???
I imagine that black soldiers during the Civil War would be similar to the black U.S soldiers of today.
Some would be "good soldiers" who would obey the orders of their superiors (i.e fight enemy black soldiers as long as they were told to) and some would be "militants" who see whites as their enemies.
