2 years ago, when I started this blog, I really wasn’t sure if anyone would even pay attention to what I had to say. I spent a lot of time creating a page that was easy to read. The inserts and widgets you see were carefully put in place to make it look, at least, like a professional blog. Well, quickly, as I started posting blog topics, people responded. Soon there after, I gained a following. Wordpress rewarded my blog with all type of awards for “likes” and number of follower attraction and such. I was flattered. However, my primary motivation was to just speak the truth–as I saw it. Raw, unapologetic; pure critical thinking in action.
People responded positively. They liked what I had to say. Cool, I thought.
I’m very humbled by those who follow this blog and have learned by the mind pieces I’ve presented. For those who’ve visited, you’ll be greeted with this message: “Only the TRUTH is spoken here. Get used to it! What is this blog about? It’s very clear that I’m promoting Black love, community, and family values of the African American community. If you do not understand that and have negative attitudes, and views about my people, you are not welcome here–and will be banned immediately.” I was serving notice to any and all non-Black, but in particular, white folks, who thought they would have access to my blog, giving their unwanted advice or comments with impunity.
First and foremost, I don’t allow whites on my blog for a reason: For almost 20 years, no matter where I visited online in various discussion groups or sites that were mixed or African American sites that allowed non Blacks, it was always the same experience, Black people would be muzzled from speaking about OUR ISSUES for fear of offending “the others” or when things got heated in racial discussions, the whites would feign abuse and complain, thus, either well known personalities would get sanctioned or banned. That’s precisely what happened to Blackvoices (my cyber Alma-mater). And is the foundational reason why I absolutely will not esteem nor invite whites on this blog.
Why? Because they are arrogant, fragmented-thinking, reptilian brain, reactive, duplicitous, hypocritical, cretins. It’s always…how they see things. They don’t have the ability to understand another’s point of view nor do they have the character or conviction to introspect and examine themselves for being the reason why this country and this world is the way it is. Simply put, white people don’t have the courage to take responsibility for their evil. It’s easier to demonize others.
The time that I spend going through the comment filter from many of them–I have no choice but to spam the majority. Complete idiots.
It is my pleasure to block that type of negative energy.
Consider your presence on my blog, as one who has been chosen. Almost like a secret society in some ways. We speak about those things truthfully that oftentimes, aren’t spoken and should be.
I’ve noticed how the lack of African American voices is becoming ever more present on WordPress. Our voices need to be here as well as our POV. It is necessary in this current climate.
Someone commented yesterday that WordPress has suspended many of the Black blogger pages. I can only guess why…They should have put in more security and not been intimidated to be inclusionary to an enemy who does not see us as human beings. They wanted to appear as “nice Negroes” and they found out the hard way of what happens when you allow snakes in your house.
I assure all, that will never be the case here.
