On Accepting Both Sides Not Just Black- Biracial - The Arguments of Darker Skin Hues



White men, who didn't want to claim their intermixed children, especially during slavery wanted their black concubines, slaves, etc. to refer to their children as black only.  This way they wouldn't have to take responsibility for them, give them any inheritance, etc.  

Since then, blacks who feel inferior have at times angrily told lighter skin blacks about the one drop government rule (see more about that) and have taught their children not to refer themselves as anything but black. This ignorant mindset is gradually changing.  Those who are biracial should refer to themselves as such acknowledging the fact that you have a non-black mother or father as well as a black parent.

The Television Show Empire - Good Bait for the No-Good Fish

Whether a mother, father, preacher, or teacher, if you have been tuning into the television show, Empire, then you have your personal opinion whether good or bad, right or wrong.  One thing is for certain this show has many people in the African American community and elsewhere buzzing about it, so much in fact that some simply talk too much.

Share enough on Facebook, forums, and other places around the web and you never know who is watching.  How many braggart young drug dealers will be tempted to want to display their fine lifestyle on the Internet or boast about it offline?  Many have already showed piles of cash on Facebook accounts over the years.  You know some of these fools can't resist identifying with characters in movies and television shows.  Just imagine some young guys and girls emulating these actors and actresses for attention sake.  I recall back when Juice came out, a movie with Tupac Shakur back in the day.  I can't tell you how many young brothas thought they were the main characters in that movie.  A few even wanted friends to call them by those character's names!  Then there were many more who could recite lines out of that movie as well as others sometimes better than the actors!

You have to wonder why a network that is typically known for being conservative took a chance on a show with a drug dealer turned music producer.  Of course money is involved but there is more to it, I guarantee it.  Those of us who have spent years hearing stories about men and women in the entertainment industry who used drug money to finance their careers know that there's some truth in this story-telling.  Blacks who have worked hard, played fair, did honest work, and more don't like what they have described this show as "coonery."  They would have preferred to see a show where blacks are broadcasted around the world quite positively, but that's asking too much and besides most "programmed" blacks love escaping their lives and observing other people's woes for a change, listening to good music, and admiring pretty, shiny looking things--and don't say you don't!  A show like Empire packages it all quite well for the ordinary citizen and for those in the entertainment industry who like looking at a depiction of themselves on television.

It is quite sad though, that the rags to riches story is built on drug money.  It is even more disheartening to see that once again we see African Americans looking just as crooked, if not, worse as their white counterparts.  Remember nighttime 80s dramas like: Dallas, Knots Landing and Falcon Crest?   Drugs, power and sex, has been topics of interest in many mafia style movies that have been glorified over the years by young, successful African American males.  They too can recite lines out of the Godfather like they are auditioning for a future part in a movie!

The message has been made clear in many gangsta style shows/movies, do what you can to get what you want even if it means murdering someone who gets in the way.  The problem with that sort of thinking is unless you have people on your bankroll and you are well-connected, that message doesn't apply to you.  And even if one is doing quite well, there will always be a hater or a snitch who's jealous, hungry, or thirsty looking to watch you fall. Sounds like what happens behind the scenes in the modern day entertainment industry based on various media outlets reporting, doesn't it?  Who is this show for really?  Have you bothered to ask that question?  Who needed to be awakened/warned/humbled?

Now all we have to do is play a guessing game of what might come of some of these rappers and their families who built their fortunes on drug money in reality.  Eventually, you do reap what you sow.

The Ones that Cry Broke the Loudest Got Money - The Deception of Rich Black Folks

I knew deep down inside that certain relatives were doing much better in life than others despite the cries I heard from the wealthy ones about being broke.  These rich people had money--lots of it.  Some obtained it legally, others illegally, and still others were gifted with the wealth from deceased loved ones.

Don't be deceived, many blacks who cry, "I don't have any money...I spent it all up.  I can't help you. If I had the money..." really have it, they just aren't willing to share any with you!  I was angered when I realized just how many prosperous/well-off black folks or those with a "decent" income got money from me over the years under the guise, "I don' have much, but could you help..."  These people weren't poor, broke or disgusted, they were doing just fine!

I should have known better when I saw one changing cars every year, paying off his house, and shopping for himself quite often like it was Christmas.  But I talked myself into believing I was just being helpful and that I would get my blessings.  Later, I found out that this property owner had sold land he had in another state for almost a million!  If I had been paying close attention to another person, I would have known that his house had long been paid for and he too always had nice cars.  This one had won the lottery for six figures. Then there were male relatives and some women too, who had a way of looking quite humble most of the time, but if there was a special event, the jewelry and clothing would come out that would cost far more than a monthly grocery bill.  I was forewarned by my discerning grandmother about these folks, "They got money.  Don't let them tell you any different."

These Negroes and N*ggas had somewhere to lay their heads without worry.  They had cars they drove without worrying about gas money and maintenance.  These were black folks who had full bellies and whenever they needed something they got it.  Meanwhile, I struggled with my finances and wondered why.  God himself said, "You emotionally spend your money.  You let your feelings get in the way of spending, saving, investing etc."  As I got older, I struggled with college student loans, you would think that black parents who claimed they didn't have any money wouldn't bother encouraging their children to attend college.  But if they can borrow, beg or steal for money, they will.  Now think about the many student loans that the children can get if the parents co-sign on them while threatening children heavily about messing up their good names.  If the bills aren't being paid until after college, which is highly recommended to put them off by many black parents because "I don't have the money!" the rich black parent can take a deep sigh of relief, because he or she won't have to pay anything but basic essentials for the child they like to brag about having to pay this bill and that one while he or she is in college.  But what about that hefty student loan you told them to not worry about?  Whether completed studies or not, the student loans will be left up to their sons and daughters to pay while mom and dad's credit remains intact, they own their house, save their money, buy their vehicles etc.

These wealthy black folks who have received cheap labor from sisters, brothers, cousins, and others in order to protect their wealth and retire comfortably are no different than a slave master!  They take what they can get from anyone who will listen to and obey them, pity, or believe their lies of a big payoff later for helping them that never comes.  Meanwhile, they have obtained riches off of using relatives, lying on applications, faking injuries, exaggerating stories, and more.  Pimping their own relatives like a pimp does his hos!

Greedy black folks know how to swindle their way out of paying full price for something, obtaining much for little, using, and abusing others while pretending to "help" those in need.  The next time you feel tempted to take your hard-earned money and help that relative who has some idea that requires a donation of time or service, think again!  Get them to pay you close to what they would pay the white man or woman.  Pay attention to how they spend and how they save.  Don't assume that what wise relatives tell you is a lie, ignorant, or they don't know what they are talking about when it comes to those closest to you.  And most of all, don't sleep on those who like to advise/teach/brag about their spending and saving habits and what all someone or a group gave them, most likely they are misers, stingy people who know how to protect their assets. Are you protecting yours?  For those of you who are coming into some money, for God sake, get a financial planner!  Broke black folks who never had anything worthwhile don't know anything about saving and investing!

Black Love: Love You, Love Me

Love you
be content with all you do.
See the good in you,
be true!

Love me,
love you,
do you?
This is all I want for you!

If you are content with yourself,
enjoy being yourself,
then less problems for me,
you see?

Love my black man, woman
glad to have my skin tan.
Enjoy receiving love
from above.
Knowing when to give,
and when to shove.

Push away blues,
and people who use, abuse
and choose
to be something
they weren't never meant to be.

Forgot to look in the mirror and say,
"Love me" today, so I pray.
Hoping that the Divine One
will show me the way!

Bad stuff will always be around,
but you don't have to get down.
See the love in your own hometown!

Between the cries, lies, and sighs,
there is no love that dies, it thrives!

Love found me, I didn't chase it.
Love rescued me when I didn't want it.
Some just sit, throw fits, won't commit.

Still angry about the past,
cursing a future saying, "It won't last."
Some moving way, way too fast!

Love starts with loving you,
then loving me,
remember, love is free!
Then see your future,
for what it could be.
