You know what I’ve been noticing lately? White people seem to have a problem with Black folks who love themselves.
Well, where I grew up in Chicago, this was normal. As was with cultural pride of all the other ethnic/racial groups in the city. It was never demonized.
However, those whites who do have a problem with Black people celebrating the richness of our culture, typically are those who have been raised in majority white communities and have been fed stereotypes from images on television.
The white pride that is demonstrated is not one of celebrating their ethnic origin but its one that is delusional and lacks humanity at the expense of people of color. It is seperatist, nationalistic, neo-Nazi and imposing some warped sense of racial superiority. Basically, it’s insanity. More boldly, it is an oxymoron wrapped in vincible ignorance. It is that same white pride that birthed the Ku Klux Klan. This pride is based on hatred and doing evil against innocent people. It’s inhumane.
Black pride is not evil. It is a celebration of our culture and affirms our identity through participation of creativity and upliftment through song, poetry, art, dance, social movements, and traditions.
Black people are not interested in dominating any group. Black people desire to exist without interference and live in harmony with nature and others on this planet. This is the true character of those of African descent.
White America’s current temper tantrum at the advent of the new Black Pride being demonstrated is more out of arrogance of the lesser group affirming themselves in the face of their dominance.
They are dying as a race. They are currently at negative birthrate and steadily declining. The world is becoming less white and more people of color. In less than 100 years, it is safe to conclude that possibly, white people could become extinct all together. What they feared is already upon them.
When Beyonce’s Formation video dropped, it slapped the hell out of White Supremacy. She gave them the middle finger all the while twirling and “slaying bitches” as she eliminated the proverbial presumption of those whites who still insist that Black people want to be like them.
We are better. Always have been. Always will be.
That is what is becoming clear to them.
