    The proper name if you need one is.....appropriation.
    Definition if you need one is:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_appropriation
    Cultural appropriation - Wikipedia
    en.wikipedia.org


    Here's another term for your consideration......gentrification.
    Not exactly the same but the two are actually quite inter-related and quite dependent on enabling each other.

    Why do roaches and mice come out when you are asleep??

    When we were awake in the 60s, 70s and 80s and knew we would not only boycott them , but have 24 hour demonstrations around their offices , globally and around the mansions of the owners and CEOs, they would not have pulled this crap!

    Well in a psychological sense they cant destroy us if we're woke but in a literal sense vermin despise light because it prevents them from doing what they do and as such exposes them for what they are.

    I'm confused here. Are you making a statement and/or asking questions? If your query is real world and you're not going somewhere else with this then you must be referring to venomous and/or nonvenomous snakebites somewhere in the outback where that happened to be the recommended treatment at that time in history where medical help was or still is hours away because in my 3 years as a paramedic we rarely if at all witnessed any patient that looked at all sleepy, unconscious or dead, if anything they were running around usually in pain depending on the type of snake that bit them. All we did was secure them, calm them down as best we could, place them on a stretcher usually in a semi supine position according to patient comfort and transport them to the nearest receiving hospital, while enroute the patients vitals were checked and noted, we'd call the receiving hospital to advise them of the situation and asked if further treatment was ordered by the ER attending physician. By the time we started an IV line we'd already arrived at the hospital. End of adventure. I hope this helped.

    We are asleep, and that is why White Supremacy has been acting like rats roaches nd water bugs, cause our lights have been off for the past 25 years !
    We were bitten as Brother James illustrated in hs great piece of , artwork collage
    by the poisonous snake , of a abharant culture
    and no group, no leadership and no quorum of young minds, are trying to shake the community, to keep us from falling asleep and dieng slowly or be reduced to a very reacl chattel slavery in the next 100 years,
    from the effect!
    All of the Black face stuff, they do intentionally, all the police abuse and lynchings they do intentionally, all the missing Black girls in Chicago, the poison water in Flint, the racist crap they put sumbliminally in movies ,
    the dumping of truck loads of free guns and free ammo in certain communities , still goes on intentionally and will not stop,

    until we wake up!

    And they know that

    Ndugu I say this not because we are supposedly from the same neck of the woods "The County of Kings" but also because I sincerely respect your wisdom, passion and more so your tireless perseverance and Destee would benefit greatly from what you could impart to the membership in the form of a blog but here's the deal and there's no way around it. I'm not going to address the mechanics or style of your comments but let's seriously analyze what we are, what we were and what the future holds for our future, you know, the ones who will inherit our legacy. If we're still asleep how did we manage to stumble and bumble into the New Millennium? Yet millions of us claim through print, radio, TV and as of late social media we are now "WOKE". Dumb Negros in the world of perpetual sleep could never figure out we are being manipulated by audio and/or visual subliminal suggestion. Those are your words. Now I have no idea when that interpretation of a birth of a nation circa 1915 AD "WOKE" us up but I digress. Would you even be willing to concede that we are not a race of dull witted Negros as "The Other Man" claims and give "US" credit for once to have been "WOKE" from the day our elders bid farewell to Mother Africa until just the other day when our esteemed Caucasian po po claimed the life of yet another Brother for holding a cellphone while Black? Yes? No? Maybe? Again, 25 years or 400 years or some other mathematical equation? Brother James was not the victim of White disenfranchisement but our own uncaring apathetic attitude of not appreciating a masterpiece of truth that at least should have evoked some passion from our own. You know, spread the word like the word is spread when the next White po po "No questions asked" gun buy back program benevolently surfaces in the hood. We had a massive and more so powerful blended leadership structure that literally turned the White Power structure on it's pointy head. You think the WH ordered the DOJ to spend millions of so-called "White" tax dollars to do what to sleeping Negros? COINTELPRO would never have needed to exist if we as a failed stupid race were sleep. We're no threat according to you. Again those are your words. Very few entities with some manner of power and control does anything unintentionally. Now that's a little reluctant credit you have to give bossman. We're not stupid and neither is he. Our problem is bossman possesses the power to dominate and control and what he can't control he destroys. It's in his nature and eventually our LORD GOD will be the instrument of his destruction. Last but no least White men who seek to manipulate others don't give away anything for free, dope, guns, their women or favor. There are no truck loads of government funded, sponsored or approved guns, dope or any other form of contraband offloading into Black areas. It's our own idiots greed for money, turf claim, a better existence while father time counts down to destiny at the detriment of their own "US" that brings that life destroying filth in from White and Hispanic distributors that don't even live in our neighborhoods. I'll grant you this, if we have any "NON-WOKE" Blacks among us it's the purveyors of contraband and other illegal activities that create wholesale destruction of the rest of us. Their shame and disgrace is they know that in their trade there is no pension plan, no medical plan and the usual retirement plans are prison or death, that's their disgrace. The fact that they well know this is their shame. Money for nothing. Take care.

    Did you see my reference point?? Brother jamesfromPhilly did a montage about how the community was infected in the 90s to get us to forget about the acheivements and struggles and ability to unite in the 60s 70s and even 80s! If you are from Brooklyn then surely you are aware of what Sonny Carson, Jitu Weusi and Nation of Gods and Earths, acheived on a street level, in that borough, and about all the manifestations of Black nationalism that were destroyed by the late 80s like Freedom National Bank, the East Cultural Center, Black News, and Uhuru Sasa school to name a few ! You cant deny seeing how the community and yes even the family unit, extended and personal changed in the 90s! Bruh I said a snake bite, and yes that was a snake bite that COINTELRPO did ! We can argue that point day and night !
