I don't even claim this to be a black thing, but in relationship to white males, some supposedly black ones are sure on the cop out/kiss up side...

I e., some fear what they don't really know for sure what the other fella's about, and in the process forgot what we used to be!

Culture and society etc. have changed...

We haven't, if we undervalue our brains, overvalue what our bodies can or do provide us, too...

We have been and some are in touch with the present, not fond memories of our ancestors pasts, be it from Mother Africa to extended families in the Americas..

I. e., most of the our distant or present relations live in urban centers, and so our conceptions have to be changed to help us face up to the challenges of the here and now...

I know Black people don't read for the very fact that majority of them go to church every sunday, yet somehow almost all of them don't know that Jesus Christ in the Bible is a man of Color.
Now the questions is why is that? The answer is simple, slavery, for centuries Negroes were not allowed to read or white, they were beaten or put to do death for doing so. It's no surprise that the majority don't read, or to be exact don't read books about their history. Many are afraid of reading about the atrocities and dehumanization of their ancestors, the reading invoke anger and hatred toward white people. They don't like the feeling, some just don't wanna see masa in a bad light. Its the same reason, some will happily go watch the movies Help and the Butler but stays far away 12 Years a slave. It's called Stockholm Syndrome. Though these same people will read things on facebook all day and read World star HipHop and Bossip but are ignorant of who Marcus Garvey is, Ike Turner, or Jesus Christ. Almost 99% of Black people go to Church every sunday, yet to this day the vast majority of them don't know and don't even care to know that Christ is a so called Black man, or a man of Color.

And if you were to dare to tell him that Christ is a Black man, he looks like you, have the same hair texture, same skin color, he is from your own nation, this Black person or Christian will call you racist, some will even fight you. Why? Because Christians don't read the Bible, but are in love with the image of the Beast white Jesus. The answer is because the mind of the Negro have been destroyed since slavery and it needs to be repaired by God's by actually doing what they were forbidden to do reading.



Well said bro. Black-king, but please tell me "Ike Turner" is a typo, for the record, and that you meant to reference "Nat Turner."
