Not Black Enough

10 Jun

As a mixed race person, I’ve often been told Im ‘not black enough’.  They don’t mean my color, since I’m plenty black. They mean my ‘soul’, that I don’t think how they think a black person should think.  (but come on, every African American in America by now has white in them, so)

We aren’t kind to each other. Our crab-basket mentality keeps ourselves down. If one of us gets a good job and tries to improve then its ‘He actin white’.  If we work to improve our communities, work within the systems then its ‘coon’ or ‘uncle tom’.

But these ideas are put in our heads. They aren’t originally ours.  They have been put there by benevolent racism of the democrats. In 1963, the democrats realized they were on the wrong side of history.  Their generations of enslaving us, their decades of Jim Crow, their KKK and their segregation, were coming to an end.  So they threw us a bone in the form of the Civil Rights Act.

Yes, he said that. And we bought it because it was free money.  Before that moment in time, we had healthy black communities. Our fathers were with their families. We might have received maltreatment from some, BUT we were strong ourselves.  Did you ever hear about black wall street?

Yeah, that was us.  We had our own stores. Our own churches, restaurants, businesses and banks. We had our own schools, our own stores.  We had black Republican congressmen. We had healthy communities.

(And democrats burned Black Wall Street out, btw.)

I’m coming to terms with this. I’ve been a life-long democrat because of the civil rights act.  No republican ever owned a slave. The Republican party was formed to end slavery, and Abraham Lincoln was its first president. Democrats got so angry at the end of slavery, that they shot the president.  The democrats formed the KKK. The democrats made Jim Crow laws. The democrats fought de-segregation. Every responsible black person through those decades was republican.  We were strong.  And Dr. King, republican, made us stronger.

See in 1963, the democrats started handing out money. Welfare made our fathers WORTH LESS than the government.  The father started to become absent from black families. If the government can give you more than your husband, why have a husband? We let the democrats un-man our men.  Benevolent racism is when the democrats tell you, that you NEED them or you can’t make it on your own. Disguised racism is when the democrats tell you that you NEED them because you’ll never be a success without them. Subversive racism is when the democrats tell you to hate the people who believe you can succeed on your own.

At this point in time, I understand that its a lie that the democrats and republicans switched platforms and ideologies. No, Republicans have always understood that a man can only be a man if he stands on his own two feet. We don’t need taken care of. We have let ourselves be lied to.  Democrat run cities are becoming nightmares. Democrat policies have made us weak and dependent on handouts.  Democrats have ‘helped’ us, in return for votes. Votes that they do nothing with. The promised returns on our votes, never comes.
