Question: Why Are White People Attracted To What Black People Say; But Can’t Take What They Hear?
This has to be an extremely broad question but one in which many Black people can relate to.
Many of us have visited websites that are marketed to the AA community; only to be infiltrated by “them”. They stay in the shadows for a while–observing what is being discussed, then, with masked intentions; they try to take a dip in the deep end of the pool, only to risk drowning because the truth we speak is just TOO DEEP for their minds. You see, white people aren’t accustomed to anything that is not customized from the white privilege they are used to. This is a white supremacist society: everything in print, the media, social settings, et al., is based on that system. They can’t see that. It’s a truism they can’t face. I guess one could look at it this way: white privilege is like an American Express card–THEY NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT.
Isn’t that how it is?
How many times have Black websites literally shut down because white folks–who were never invited, decided to crash a party where no one wanted their company? Freedom of Speech applies to Black people as well–not just “them”. However, how dare we say things that don’t esteem or privilege them. No. It just can’t be…this contradicts the self-righteous and biased view they have of themselves. Their behavior is never challenged. THEY ARE WHITE!
We need to discuss the behavior- -without mercy if need be.
For the past two weeks, I’ve literally disabled white bloggers from infiltrating my blog haven. It’s my spot–I control who gets in and who doesn’t. I’m PRIVILEGED here. It’s my domain and I Rule it with absolute authority. The racists are always easy to spot. Their comments genuinely condemn them; however, I’ve even had some try to mask their intentions with faux intellectualism, only to be exposed by some err in their exchange.
There were two white women just recently who had a problem with something I said on some older blogs. And you know what? I really didn’t care.
A note was put on my door from jump: NWA (No Whites Allowed). You will not get any White Privilege on this blog. No ma’am. And I’m not interested in hearing from white women who think that it’s a place for them to celebrate their unions with Black men–nor those who seem to be envious of Black people because they have something that they feel Blacks are supposed to have. You will not be given a seat at the head of the table here.
This blog will not be contaminated by “them”. I won’t allow it.
I giggle when they get upset at the temerity of this Negro woman to say such things. HA! Be gone. I could care less! I SEE THROUGH THEM. No matter how hard some try to mask it: They are as racist as the sky is high.
There is a truism that white folks need to face about themselves: what they have has been because of the labor of someone else. They are inheritors of wealth that allows them the freedom they have tried to deny others to have. Slavery was a major economic boost for many wealthy white families in this country. Over $800 Trillion dollars was generated from slavery–and that is just an estimate. Add to that, how institutionalized racism benefited them as well. And even our founding fathers understood posterity very well; many of their heirs inheriting the slaves of the authors of the Declaration of Independence. What a contradiction.
Black people were shut out of the system for over 400 years, but BY GOD! We overcame–and they just can’t figure that out. Black people are natural hustlers–we will find a way to make it. It’s just in us, but really, it’s very African. In Africa, over 90% of the people are entrepreneurs. It’s in their nature to create goods or provide service to the people in their villages. It’s second-nature.
I love my people. And many that come here are just looking for a place where they can talk freely about the issues that impact us all–and to discuss the issues that matter most to US–without some white man/woman interjecting their thoughts on those issues, but with malice and ill intent. Basically, to mask their bias against Black people. Our history is AMERICAN HISTORY. Without us; America would not even have much of a culture. It is our inventions, creativity, work ethic, contributions, and sharp intellects that have given much benefit to this country. And we simply will not be treated with indignation any further. We know what white people are and will tell them to their faces about themselves. Basically, we’re sick of them and this is true purging.
The real truth: White people need to face themselves and the system(White Supremacy). Are they really serious when they say they are interested in equality? I don’t believe most of them…and the reason being is that when you say you are interested in equality, it comes with a caveat: to truly believe in it; literally means the end of White Privilege. And this is where white folks stumble. They love supporting the Civil Rights movement, but when it came right down to it, it all boils down to equality–and even some of the most well-intentioned white folks, just can’t get their minds around that for it truly means the end of everything they know. This would mean that the redistribution of wealth would change–they would have less. Yes, it would be fairer, but this is scarier than the Exorcist for white folks who’ve become accustomed to affluence, material control/gain; and comforts from being in the upper-classes. And the biggest fear: That POC (People of color) would gain control over them, gaining political, economic, and cultural control–as they have had control over POC’s. They fear that what they did to others will come back on them.
Can you say: KARMA!
Whatever the case may be, the bottom line here is: The Truth is the foundation of this site, and I don’t give a damn if white folks can’t handle it. If they can’t accept that–BOUNCE.
Ever since Obama was elected, these people have been losing their damn minds. How many mass shootings have we had in the last 5 years? With exception to two; the majority of the shooters were WHITE MALES. They were upset because their lives were interrupted. Oh! The Irony. Who f*cked up the economy? Not Black people, but yet; we keep ending up as victims
An alarm has gone off. Those who heard it will respond in time. Those who are asleep shall perish.
Trust me; I pull no punches. White people keep asking for it. Seriously, I think it’s high time to TELL IT LIKE IT IS>>>Put hot sauce on it; and stuff it down their throats.
Don’t keep waving your hand in front of a lion; sooner or later he’s gonna bite it off to remind you that HE’S A LION!
With that, to answer my own question: White people can’t handle what they hear from us because many are just too arrogant and stupid to understand the truth coming from a proud, educated Black person. They fear it because it EXPOSES them without apology. And thus, If I have said anything that has offended whites: I’M DELIGHTED!
