Black Pride Comes Before a Fall

Years of success has went to the heads of many of our black elders in communities across our land.  Egos that are large like the watermelons planted in rich soil by slaves of yesteryear, the arrogant are selfish, jealous, and downright vengeful.  Why so prideful?  Why the need to raise one's tone of voice, look down on others, and act like a Know-It-All, when one knows not?  Why bother to break a fellow brother or sister down because he or she simply doesn't agree?  Why act rudely toward someone because he or she might be more knowledgeable about a certain subject matter?

Most blacks, as well as, non-blacks have already had a run-in or two with the sassy, young woman who looks for an opportunity to flaunt her nasty attitude while using her mouth to curse someone.  But let us not forget, the older blacks who use position, connections, money, and fame to do everything from control others to shed blood.  These mean-spirited people, who can smile in your face while steadily stab you in the back, are the ones you must watch while praying that you come out alive after all the mess they stir up.  The following are examples of prideful people doing things to cover themselves.

A black leader might be quick-tempered and ill-equipped to handle what he is not use to, so he passes his responsibilities on to others while taking credit for work he has not done.  Discerning observers should watch for this type of action and work swiftly to make changes before the boss takes the whole organization down with him (or her) due to sneaky ways of doing business.   In another example, a wife is argumentative and often angry about a variety of family issues.  Rather than deal with each problem one by one, she insults others while making excuses for her actions.  A person like this is better left alone to contemplate the havoc she has caused for herself and others, because she refuses to deal with her personal problems.  In this final example, a worker lacks discretion when it comes to conversing with his superiors without apology or making needed changes.  It is only a matter of time that leadership will eventually find a way to rid themselves of their "challenge."  All of these arrogant types are tempted to lie to keep jobs, money, relationship and more while throwing witnesses, advisers, and friends under the bus when their motives are called into question. 

"Who does she think she is coming into my office telling me about XYZ?  What kind of worker would feel the need to tell his boss about...Isn't he concerned that he may not get hired?"the man or woman with the issue of pride thinks to his or her self.  One with no ego issue could care less about money, fame, power, position, or impressing others.  Yet, the man or woman who believes that aging years, skin color, and personal satisfaction is of the utmost importance believes that most people think like him or her.  Therefore, the strategies that this individual might use to manipulate a person or situation will center around years of knowledge/connections/degree/job title, topics related to ethnicity, and self-esteem.  He or she might talk often about how much he or she knows, negative talk about fellow blacks while overtly or covertly bragging about one's self, family and connections.

This sort of negative behavior isn't just coming from old, prideful black men and women, but is also demonstrated in young, "think I know-it-all" black men and women who have studied and practiced the ways of arrogant mentors/teachers.  They believe that somehow they are different when in all actuality they are nothing more than Mini-Me's.  They too are concerned about money, power, fame, etc. and will fight to protect what little they have accumulated even if this means one day crossing the ones who showed them the ropes in the first place!  The young and the restless will flock to people and places (sometimes without their shepherds) in the hopes that their connections will get them into the "in" crowd--that is if they aren't already in due to shady dealings, ethics, and favor. 

Often critical of their elders, these young, foolish men and women will display child-like character when placed under pressure.  From lying to vehemently arguing over things that are not worth debating about.  The snobbish, also known as, boogie type of black will do nothing more than sit back and watch their own young hang themselves in career, family, and more.  While commenting to fellow senior brothers and sisters, "You can't tell these young people anything."
