You don't see Black people on television. Not one show has an all Black line-up. The News that we get is largely constructed to form public opinion and being that the government controls the media; can one assess why even someone in the most distant parts of the world, have negative views of African Americans? It is by design. Everything negative that you see about US is "created" literally to construct social-engineering. Its intent: To maintain White Dominance.
You think this is a joke?

Where I live in Georgia, our local paper has a section called "Sound Off" in which people in the community can call and leave anonymous messages about anything that is bothering them. Well...I had been thinking about it for a long time, but I took the time to express how southern whites seem to think they can disrespect Black folks down here with absolute impunity. The arrogance, obnoxiousness and ignorance that many of them have toward African Americans is downright repugnant. Whether you go to the local Wal-Mart or the mall...McDonald's, etc., white folks have this audacity to presume they can talk or say anything to Black folks, whether they invite the interaction or not. I always tell folks that Georgia is a beautiful state, but Rednecks and that old Good 'Ol Boy system of the south f*ck it up.
I just spoke the truth to the paper...and I can't wait until my comments are published.
As relates to the country, I ask myself when...WHEN? Are Black people going to get angry? When are we going to wild out. The unemployment rate in and of itself calls for protest. Black people are losing their homes at record rates. Black males have dismal numbers in just about every category, yet, you dont' hear anything about our issues. Is it because we've become to lax and apathy has taken us over? Is it fear to SPEAK THE TRUTH? What?
Obama is not even addressing these issues and those advising him(mostly white) continue to convince him not confront our condition. I've lost respect for Obama and his cowardice is giving me reason to either support a different candidate in the upcoming election or actually sit out and not vote at all. This would be a travesty, but I'm disgusted with his administration.
Hell. Bill Clinton was awarded the moniker "The Nations First Black President" when he was in office because of his support and many programs he created to help the Black community and other minorities. He was honored to be given that title.
Obama, the brown man, doesn't even want to be considered as The Black President.
Whatever it is, I am demanding that all of you start writing your congressman and telling them what is wrong in your community and exercising your right as a voter and American citizen to be treated with dignity and respect by those WE ELECT to represent us.
Those in the Tea Party were not afraid to do this.
Black America has no excuse.
