On Playing Dumb - When Some Blacks Fit the Stereotype

The eyes will light up with some of our people when they hear of the latest gossip about a celebrity, how many points a favorite athlete made in a game, and what might be the latest bling that will make the ladies and gentlemen's heads turn when they walk by.  Meanwhile, others will just shake their heads, knowing full well that yet again the dumb down effect is working.  "Aren't you concerned about anything else?" the discerning loved one asks his or her foolish relative.  Not with some blacks, meaningless information and stuff is often more important than anything else.

Some blacks are in fact dumb enough to go along with just about anything.  Those with more money, an increase in assets, and additional opportunities can only see themselves in the mirror.  But as we all know, what goes up, must come down and this is why some blacks just aren't getting a break from mainstream media to the local neighborhood.  There is indeed a dark spirit that is ever present with some blacks who just never learn.  Prideful, argumentative, know-it-all blacks with a chip on their shoulders ignore wisdom, righteous living, and anything that is going to point out their ugly ways.  This is why some get labeled by successful groups and individuals, "Hard to work with...Bad attitude...Keep away...Self-hating black...Sell-out...Black and ugly..."  You get the point.

The lack of intelligence in some African-Americans tends to show up when under pressure.  Some eyes start twitching, words get mixed up, there is some stammering and stuttering, and a whole lot of lying.  Too dumb to shut up, the motor mouth black will keep going like an energizer rabbit.  "I don't know anything...What had happened was...I didn't see nothin'...What you talkin about?"  Like a Mexican pretending not to know English, an African American caught in a mess of drama will play dumb.  This is often encouraged in the ghetto.  "You know somethin'?"  Yes, you might say.  "Well then play dumb.  Don't everyone need to know what you know, you hear?"

This play dumb act (rooted from slavery when the masters questioned their slaves) has been going on for centuries and because of the stupidity in this teaching is why many blacks are often held back in school, sit on the bench at sporting events, and can't get or keep a good black man or woman to save their lives!  Dumb is viewed as cool.  Smart is considered weak, dumb, stupid etc.  When a non-black asks you a question, you are told by elders, "They don't need to know all your business."

Educated blacks are still purging out the mess left behind from previous generations who refused to pick up a book and actually enjoy reading it.  Young children have to be reminded that books come first then play.  The rebellious kids will fall out, argue, slam things, act like idiots when they are told to do homework.  Some are often scolded for singing, rapping, dancing and acting like a fool at the wrong place and at the wrong time, thanks to foolish parents who glorify buffoonery.  "Dance for mama, baby...go ahead...Rap...yeah shake that..."  Many know how to shimmy and shake before they even know how to pick up a book!

It isn't any wonder that some non-blacks will criticize certain blacks for acting ghetto and why others will accuse their people for playing dumb.  Just take a look around.  Dumb is on TV, in the comment sections of web pages, hanging on a wall, driving down the street, or singing on a stage.  I said it in the past, and I will say it again, "Come up higher!"  Educate those you claim to love and remind them there is a time and place for all things.  "When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me." 1 Corinthians 13:11 (NIV).

Discerning The Wheat from the Chaff - African American Foolishness - A Wake Up Call

"He is ready to separate the chaff from the wheat with his winnowing fork. Then he will clean up the threshing area, gathering the wheat into his barn but burning the chaff with never-ending fire." -- Matthew 3:12

Stupid, Unfocused, Silly, Sensitive, and Ignorant were all welcome to the party when you were growing up.  The host most likely didn't leave anyone out when you celebrated holidays with family and friends.  You were expected to go along to get along.  You were told, "That's your blood...your family...don't judge...He's good people...She loves you even if she acts crazy sometimes." 

We have all been there, forcing ourselves to tolerate certain people.  But today, when I looked around a stadium of white and brown people with blacks here and there, I realized all the more just how different we are even among our own culture and age groups.  There is no one size fits all with African Americans and I no longer have a one size fits all tolerance for our people either no matter age, background, neighborhood, faith, gender, etc.

I recognize the God that many of us pray to (and for others they simply respect, but nothing more), is not happy when we welcome any and everybody into our circles just because we have similar skin tones or have some commonalities.  Sure, we talk or minister to the lost, might even break bread sometimes, but many are not who we seek for counsel or ask to help with tasks.  Some people are indeed chaff while others are wheat.  The chaff are those that have little regard for wisdom, could care less about doing what is right, and have repeatedly looked for any and every excuse not to serve an Almighty God.  These same individuals are open to a conversation about all things related to Satan, but not so much when it comes to the things of God.  Talk about money, you got their attention.  Share practical information on their future purchases, they are listening.  Mention something about saving, investing, better ways to parent, the truth about dark celebrities, and similar eye-opening things and gradually you start to lose them.  Bring some music, shocking photos beverages and food, and you might engage some of these people to listen again.

Time is quite honestly running out for the chaff, they are everywhere!  From TV to that relative who puts up a fight any and every time any form of truth is being mentioned, God is indeed separating the wheat and the chaff.  Unrighteous relationships that have gone on whether in or out of the church are coming to a close.  Wicked people who worked closely and did much evil together will have their share of fall-outs until someone will say, "I can't take this anymore."  Others will cry out loud for the first time in years to the Great I Am after years of running from Him, because they just can't take the pain, stress, and lies anymore.  Oh, the days of trial are coming from the head on down in many of these so-called "black groups" and "black relationships." 

Enjoy these good times of television and Internet for now, those ungodly celebrations, and whispering about the evil that men and women do, soon there will be a massive conviction of those who God has called to Him--the chaff will be separated from the wheat!

Destroy Gangstalking Electronic Attacks with light energy - Light Body Life




Worked for the government, got involved with some illegal activities, whistle blew on someone or a group, or exposed a hidden secret/program/plan, then you or someone you know might be a victim of gang-stalking.  Many researchers, politicians, clergy, former members of secret societies and those connected with them died as a result of what they knew/said/did.  Others were merely apart of government related experiments.  Open up your mind, don't go along with disinformation agents who would have you believe it is all in the victims' minds.  Not everyone is crazy.  Chances are someone you know or heard of suddenly died that was "well-connected" didn't just die of natural causes.  People can be driven mad.  Others can go from being happy one day to practically over night think about killing themselves.  Then there are those who begin bad drug and alcohol habits and don't really no how it all began.  Some of these privileged individuals end up reaping what their ancestors sown.  What was done in darkness decades prior, comes back to haunt generations after them.  But whatever the case, don't dismiss the truth when it comes to some people when they say things like, "Someone is following me...I can't seem to get a job no matter what I do...I have pain in my chest every time I go there...I hear voices whenever I am around..."  There are many sophisticated ways to do away with an individual that don't involve a gun, pills, or a knife.  Wake up!

Black People Mental Illness and Recovery (Depression, Suicide, PTSD, OCD)



This video is a good example of how some circles converse about mental illness.  They tend to go, around, around and then the chatter calms down and nothing much is really said and no real solutions are provided.  There is one in the group who talks about the psychological factors, stats, etc. while the Average Joe is like, "What are you talking about?"  Another will share a personal experience while trying hard to make the lesson be less about her and more about teaching others.  Then there is one who doesn't quite understand much about the subject matter and wants to know more.  Another individual thinks he or she "gets it," but then at the same time chooses to focus on one of the participant's weaknesses to cover up or distract from what might be really going on with him or others in the room.  All seem to be in agreement about how black people should be strong, and overcome, etc.  But the truth of the matter is, a sick person can be strong for a moment and then end up right back where he or she started from, sick with no help.  Pep talks do nothing more than send people over the edge or make them rebel.  A sick person doesn't need a motivational speech on how strong black people should be.  Instead that mentally ill relative or friend needs help!  

When you watch the video, you might be able to pin-point each person I referenced in your own circle.  I am sharing this video, because not that long ago, someone talked to me about white people having their share of issues, but really didn't want to admit to mental illnesses with blacks especially around her.  I personally witnessed mentally disturbed black women and men "losing it" as well as teens and children freaking out when triggered.  I had a melt-down for a short period.  When triggers occurred in all situations that made the person "go crazy" so to speak, witnesses said things like, "Calm down, calm down..." others made threats, and then some actually wanted to fight the person having the fit.  It was obvious that the blind couldn't lead the blind!

Mental illness is real!  I have seen the ugliness of it in relatives and it doesn't always look like the homeless man or woman walking down the street.  Their money, homes and cars have been covering up what has really been going on behind closed doors in their dark conversations, personal interests, and more.  For far too long, some of my relatives have given troubled family and friends the pass on their disturbing mental conditions that have gone on for years on and off such as:  violent conversations for seemingly little offenses, anger outbursts, depressing talks of death, repeated lying, impulsive shopping and gambling, abusive parenting, physical and emotional abuse of partners (i.e.) emotional withdrawal and shoving, phobias (scared of everything from bugs to getting on the plane), over-the-top bragging about material goods and children, sudden relocations without notice, isolation periods, repeated forgetfulness, obsession with church and other civic associations, paranoia, constant bad-mouthing, frequent busybodiness, self-absorbed behaviors, and hoarding material wealth.   All these things are ongoing for months even years with different people having a few or more of these issues (you only need five to be diagnosed with something) and black folks make excuses, look away, or keep secrets.  "You know he crazy...don't say nothin'...all we can do is pray," some say.

So if you notice "somethin' ain't right" and it is affecting you and your loved ones, don't pretend to be strong, all-knowing, and powerful, you aren't God and neither is your family and friends!  Find out what the issues are and seek helpful resources.

Black Greek Organizations, Church Groups, & Civic Organizations: Pressuring Young Minds to Commit

Every year, nearing the end of summer, an increase of past movies glorifying Greek organizations bombard our television screens. Searches related to Greek sororities and fraternities rise. There is also recruitment efforts boosted for other groups as well from religious to governmental.

The strategies to permeate one's mind, "to just consider" are everywhere! Far too often, those who don't demonstrate critical thinking skills get sucked into groups they really didn't want to be involved, but either the organization's name recognition, promises, or pressures from others like "your parents and grandparents belonged; therefore, it's only right that you do the same" is why new recruits blindly follow others not realizing the long-term effects especially when one breaks an oath.

So what does an individual do when he or she is surrounded by happy smiles, good food, strong drink, and numerous promises of future opportunities?

Research.

Find out everything you can about the organization from the bottom to the top. There is the propaganda that the people at the bottom receive and the secrets that those at the top know. Wouldn't you want to be privy to what goes on at the top? Never trust a person or group at the bottom or the top with your life without doing thorough research.

Most likely, as a potential member, you already know the pros, because the representative(s) of the group has often reminded you of them from word of mouth to handouts. Now it's time for you to smile back at that recruiter with "I will think about it." But beware, recruits are trained to have a rebuttal for just about anything you say! Stand strong when responding to a recruit's pressure tactics. Whether they sell you on the group by offering something you desire or use fear or guilt to get you to commit, understand they are on a time limit. They know the more time they allow for you "to think about it" the more likely you will go snooping around and find out some information they don't want you to know about. Many recruiters don't like the Internet because the truth always exists amongst the lies and some groups try real hard to keep the Internet clean of any negativity surrounding them. So if you don't find anything, it doesn't mean it's "all good," go to the library. Research the group like preparing to write a term paper. Who does the group report to? There are always a circle of people at the top who run the organizations within their circle such as the Sigma Pi Phi also known as the Boule, a historically black elitist organization modeled after Skull and Bones. Sigma Pi Phi is head over the four black sororities and four black fraternities while a more powerful group known as the Illuminati runs the Boule and many other fraternal groups, businesses, banks, and other organizations worldwide.

The people at the top will tell those at the bottom what to say, how to say it, where to go, what to do, etc. to grow the organization. This may include "befriending" you and others to find out more about your culture, hobbies, psychological challenges, and more and what better way than to search your name and associations via the Internet. To obtain all of this information from unsuspecting people, recruiters will help those at the top create agendas geared to generate more power over the masses and more wealth for them now and in the future. Those annual membership fees and extra expenses charged by so many groups are greatly appreciated by the elite! Even a local church headed by a pastor with a large following is connected to a few occult affiliations (find out more about this by researching the organizations a pastor lists on his website and if they aren't listed ask the church secretary for a pamphlet, brochure, or media packet. Zealot church members will encourage your attendance in the hopes that you will keep giving to the elite's causes. They may even offer you things that seem too good to be true. Be wise and watch as well as pray for signs of deception. The minister and his or her assistance are formally trained to get members and many large churches get paid well doing it! Meanwhile, you can only hope that your own personal needs get met like food in your refrigerator, rent paid, and utility bills stay current —you know the simple pleasures of life while you are forking over your last money because someone pressures you "to give to God's work."

Find out the history of the group.

Who really created this award-winning organization? Once again, there is the story the people at the bottom are fed and the story that those at the top know. What are the organization's principles? How have they changed over the years? The originator usually had good intentions many years ago, but after decades of changing hands: ideas, values, and goals are often rearranged for good, evil or just grow stale.

While you are researching the history, you should look for contradictions, hypocrisy, cover-ups, and money trails. Do wonder why, for instance, an African American, Irish, Asian, Mexican, Italian or some other race would build an organization on say Greek philosophies, Satanism, Christianity (but not practice), Eastern mysticism and more? You should wonder what type of culture derived from say, Greece, Israel, Egypt, and Africa. Was witchcraft, homosexuality, drunkenness, sorcery, human sacrifices significant back then and still are all-too important now?

Ask yourself, why would Americans subscribe to foreign beliefs? What types of additional study would you be required to participate in if you joined the group? For instance, you should question why studying mystery religions, eccentric philosophers, sexually confused persons, or deranged lunatics really be helpful to your mind and future family? Note the negatives and positives. Compare what you have discovered with your own personal convictions. Understand that what you involve yourself with over a long period of time will affect those around you in the future especially if you plan on sharing the group's gospel to get relatives and friends involved. Immoral philosophies and brainwashing have been known to cause a breakdown in one's personal or professional relationships. There are many people who could care less about good, evil, demons, angels, and other things related to spiritual matters. There are others who rather walk solo than to pay allegiance to any group for a lifetime. Those at the top know this and that's why they can easily get members to join who may not care about spiritual things or loyalty, but they care a whole lot about money and connections.

In time, the "sell-out" who was adamant about not conforming is now a fast-talking representative who at some point will be approached to do something out of character, bizarre, or may even cost one his or her reputation or freedom. How awful it must feel for a new recruit to walk around knowing at any given moment photos, email, text messages or other evidence may pop up one day for all to see if this person should break an oath? If the potential recruit had only done his or her homework early on, this person wouldn't have ever registered, but now the fearful member feels obligated to the group.

Examine the logos, symbols, colors, and hand-signs.

There is more to what you see. What does each symbol stand for on the organization's crest? Most gullible members have no idea or what they know isn't the real truth. Remember there is the meaning you are given by the recruit and the one you will have to find for yourself when it comes to the group's historical background. Search other groups to find similar logos, symbols, hand-signs, and colors. You will be surprised how supposedly opposing groups are in fact interconnected. You will have to look closely, because some symbols are very creatively hidden. Chances are all of them report to the same people, which means only one thing, they all point to one main group who holds a certain belief system that you might not accept for you and your future family. Think realistically about the long-term impact your membership to the group will make on your life. Ask yourself, "Are there other ways I can get ahead without them?" How might the group affect my personal relationships in the future? Also, when viewing the group's literature such as event dates, pay attention to number patterns, nothing is coincidental when the same numbers, dates, and times keep showing up. What do the numbers, colors, hand-signs, and symbols mean?

Observe the group's activities.

In every organization there is a ring leader and then there are the rest of the people. How does the leader get along with everyone else? Are tasks evenly demonstrated or are a few individuals doing the most important tasks of the group on a regular basis while others are left in the dark until the last minute? Why? Does the group make decisions together or do leaders often meet separately without input from the rest?

Representatives of groups often boast about their affiliations and name drop. Don't be so easily impressed. There are sacrifices that people make in every organization to reach the top and it isn't all glamorous! Some of what they do is reprehensible behind closed doors! The kind of stuff what would make a mother cry. What type of connections does the group really have to the outside world? What are specific examples of how a group helped a member who was in trouble? What does one have to do to establish a network that would benefit his or her career goals? Why do they want you? They may have already done research on your background and found some things that could help them for good, evil or both.

Be sure any and everything you are expected to do is outlined and find out what the fine print says on those contracts. You can easily search for examples online especially on websites that allow visitors to upload confidential documents.

Talk to others about the group then ask questions.

Talking is simply casually mentioning your observations and feelings about the organization and its activities. You may say something like, "That was interesting. I liked the way you arranged the party. Someone has great organization skills! Wow, I could learn a thing or two." By doing this, you are building a connection with whomever it is that you want to obtain information.

Don't ask questions that reveal everything you know; rather pretends to be ignorant. When they answer follow up with, "I didn't know that. Interesting. How might I learn more?" Here are questions you might ask, "What was the founder(s) intent when he created this organization? What types of activities did the founder participate in over the years? " You are basically quizzing this person to see if they know more about the organization other than the script that they were given to study. So who is this recruiter and how can their group really benefit you? Here are a few questions to ask, "Are there any events that the group attends resulting in paying jobs for most members? What are some of the challenges you face as a member? Do you have to pay any out of pocket expenses to orchestrate group events?" Now when you ask these questions, observe the recruit's reactions. A disgruntled person will show his or her true colors in time. You have to be extra careful who you are talking to and never badmouth anyone, or reveal any of your findings! For example, you don't say, "I saw this video about the illuminati and your group is affiliated with them. Did you know that?" Right away, the person who you are talking to is going to shut down. They may even sound the alarm to others in the group about you. Remember, you don't let the left hand know what the right hand is doing—a timeless adage from yesteryear that still works to this day. It is very easy to find out whether information is factual or not without drawing attention to it.

If the individual or group really wants your membership, they will look for clever ways to get around the truth such as: finding your weaknesses and using them against you in order for you to lean on them in the future, find errors in your belief system, talk to people you know, use bullies to get you to run to them for help, and do something nice for you to get you to join. Later, they will focus their attention elsewhere seeking yet another gullible new recruit.

Avoid going along just to get along.

So many people join churches, organizations, civic groups, companies, and more just so that they are not ridiculed or ousted from other affiliations. You have earned your stripes to be called, "adult" after being raised for so many years by relatives, teachers, etc. As a child, you didn't always go with the program set before you, so why at 20 plus will you allow yourself to be manipulated, forced, coerced, threatened, or even physically assaulted?

Find out the truth about certain traditions. For example, why do Greek college organizations really paddle? Why are there Greek organizations on college campuses? You will have to look back to Greek customs to answer this one. It is symbolic of a certain act—do your research.

In closing, be mindful of why you will be joining a certain group, how much time, money, and your life will be sacrificed. Also, when you see something that goes against your own personal convictions, walk out. If you don't have any morals that you can call your own, then create some!

Change Your Mind, Do What Is Right and The Good is Sure to Follow

You never know when something you hoped/prayed/wished for is going to come, but when it does finally show up, will you be ready?  Too often our people are ill prepared when blessings show up.


I think of men and women who ask God for babies, but yet don't make any life adjustments that will make room for the attention, love, care and more that is required to raise a child.  They continue to work long hours, attend every event imaginable, and waste money.  Then when the news comes, "We're pregnant."  It isn't long before the happy news wears off and now a couple is arguing about things like:  prenatal appointments, baby products, money, and everything else related to family.


You might be one of many looking out for some good things to happen in your life.  Have you gave up anything while you wait?  For some of us, the wait has been much longer than anticipated because we permitted distractions to get us off focus, we didn't always follow wise counsel, we fought with people who only had our best interests in mind, and more.  Therefore, the more unprepared you are, the longer you have to wait.  Some blacks didn't bother to give up anything to get something, so they have been hit with everything from illness to dysfunctional appliances in homes they love more than God!


Our people are rich with material goods, but poor with wisdom.  Our people think they know much, but know very little.  Many of our relatives and friends are foolish, liars and lazy.  They say one thing, but do another.  Looking at the size of many African Americans, it is clear to see that like hogs, they eat everything in site, but wisdom.  So it isn't any wonder when knowledge is preached, black folks are too tired to listen!


Anything you want to accomplish in life, you must change your mindset!  This is also true when it comes to spirituality, wellness, finances, marriage, parenting, business planning, and more.  If you are unwilling to change your mind first, followed by making necessary sacrifices, and waiting on blessings rather than just jumping out there and doing whatever you want, don't wonder why nothing you touch never turns into gold.  Besides, if you are a child of God, you know better than to believe that a mere mortal has a Midas touch anyway.

Stress Management - High Blood Pressure and the African American Woman

I am an African-American woman who was born and raised in the south. My family, like many other southern families, idea of having a good meal is eating smothered pork chops, home made mashed potatoes with gravy, collard greens with ham hock and jiffy cornbread with butter on top. In the south, we love to eat the hog and all of its parts. Southerners are known for eating chitlings, pork ribs, chopped barbecue, ham sandwiches, pork sausage, and bacon.

Everything Good To You Is Not Good For You
My mother cooked and fed her children pork because her parents cooked and fed their family pork. My mother died from too much stress on her heart, as did her mother. They both had high blood pressure and they both died young. I am forty years of age and I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure. Do you see the pattern? Is this a pattern in your family as well?

Eat Healthy
The way that you can manage the stress that is being placed on your heart is by preventing it before it happens. When you eat fried foods and pork products you run the risk of clogging up the walls of your arteries. If your arteries are clogged with build up from grease then you are putting stress on your heart because your heart has to pump extra hard to get the blood to your vital organs. Managing stress starts with your diet by limiting the amount of pork, salt and fried foods that you intake and increasing the amount of fruits,vegetables, whole grains and fiber that you eat. Before you change your diet, you should consult with your doctor. There are also many books out there about healthy eating as it relates to African-American women.

Exercise
You can also reduce the amount of stress you place on your heart by exercising. Your heart is a muscle that is connected to valves which are connected to your arteries. When your heart is pumping blood it moves the valves and when you are inactive there is not enough blood flowing to keep your valves working properly. Walking for about 30 minutes a day is a great exercise for strengthening your heart and keeping your blood flowing properly. You should consult with your doctor before you start a new exercise regime.

Statics show that African American women have a high risk of being diagnosed with high blood pressure. High blood pressure is a disease that can be passed on from family to family but you can also have high blood pressure because of controllable variables such as being over weight, inactivity and having poor eating habits. High blood pressure is a silent killer and can lead to strokes and heart attacks. If you have not done so already, get you blood pressure checked and work on controlling the amount of stress that you place on your heart.

What's Wrong, What's Right with Our People?

Aren't you tired of having to make excuses for fools, helping stubborn individuals, or pretending as if people are alright in your own family when you know they are not?

For years, I have looked the other way on some things dealing with "our people," because I know that we have been beat up in the media for far too long and are still being portrayed negatively.  I also observed how various systems have abused many of us mentally, physically and spiritually in many ways over the years.  So I, like many other black women, have said positive things about the brothas, whether true or not, in some circles.  We have encouraged the Lazy, The Good-for-Nothing, Stupid, and Crazy even when these folks didn't win our respect.  We have helped these folks from  showering them with compliments to supporting their weak businesses.  However, I'm tired.  I said, it, "I'm tired!!!"  What gives?  How many times will fools keep falling into money traps and looking to women to bail them out?  When will young brothas stop running with the wrong company only to end up in jail or six feet deep?  When will the lying, cheating, eye-rolling, deep sighing, and avoiding the truth stop?  How long, Lord?  How long?  I'm tired of some of our people, especially in mainstream media keep making fools of themselves and then acting as if God gave them some wicked talent.  Stop supporting the sex, lies, mayhem, gossip, and other things that you know you wouldn't sit up and look at with a child or your mother for that matter?

Love and Hate

This business of self-hate is so real and non-blacks are making money marketing this issue around the web--so stop supporting them especially when you don't know the website owner behind the scenes!  I can't tell you how many times I have seen our people act so nice with non-blacks and act ugly with those who love them!  I mean what sense does this make?  A mother looks out for her broke, busted and disgusted son, and she can't even get a Mother's Day card.  A father almost goes to jail trying to see his children, because the mother is mad about one issue or the other--what does that have to do with seeing his kids?  A divorced father mad with the mother strategically looks for ways to keep the black woman out while letting the white lawyer, white girlfriend/wife, and white establishment handle all his business.  Then you have those who embrace all things non-black or hate anything not black!  What gives?

Trust

Our people are some fickle folks!  Today they will love you, then tomorrow they won't.  They will play these "I'm so broke" games, but suddenly money shows up when they really want or need something.  Some are jealous, angry, and often think that someone is up to something even when the evidence shows there are no games being played.  Some black folks need love too!  There are those who can be trusted!

Business

I literally sat and cried when I clicked on website after website of black businesses that are now 404s! There is no trace that any of these sites ever existed.  I was disappointed to see all these "likes" from people who could care less about us and have been selling out for years.  I also noticed the many rags to riches stories and saw the one eye and pyramids here there on a local, national and international level not just with mainstream celebrities either!  It is sickening!

That's what's wrong!  Now what is right?

Everyday our people are being awakened to truth in all it's forms!  Mental, physical and spiritual truth has been manifesting for a long time now, and some are actually doing something productive with their knowledge.  Others are breaking away from toxic "in the box" family and friends.  They are learning about things like going "No Contact" and leaving their pasts behind.  Others are not running into the arms of non-blacks as they begin their quest to find themselves.  They are welcoming all things black while living in a white world.  There are blacks who love self--sometimes too much which gets them in trouble with their heavenly Father, because they are not Him!

Contrary to what mainstream media wants to brainwash the world about African Americans with, many of us are doing just fine, thank you!  We are still working our businesses or working for others, raising children under the fear and admonition of the one true God (not Lucifer), attending worship services on or offline, we are caring for the sick, investing and donating finances, and many of us have long been keeping young children off the street. We all aren't supporting the god of Hip Hop and all his poisonous lyrics and we all don't like or care about pimp preachers, scantily dressed musicians, drug dealers, trouble-making children, and ghetto folks who think they know it all!
 
Rebellious, stubborn, sexually confused folks, drunks, drug addicts, and gambling buffoons are not what the truly conscious blacks are applauding or associating with despite what you have heard.  There are still biblical precepts and they will be followed.  We will not be bullied or have others' agendas shoved down our throats.  I know I watched reality TV foolishness in the real world since I was a child, and I'm tired of seeing it on TV, so I shut the idiot box off when mentally sick and stupid folks come on.  If you are tired too, hit big business where it hurts, switch those channels!  

So as much as the media would like to paint a broad stroke of someone or group's agenda and market it all around the world, take heed what you see isn't always what you get.  Tread softly when you regurgitate what you saw or heard to an African American and don't assume that media propaganda is an accurate portrayal of all of us, because it is not!

5 Signs You Have Shady Relatives

When you talk with deceptive people, some will smile and act respectful while hiding hidden agendas in their minds and hearts.  Others will react just like they are, devilish.  They have jealous stares, don't smile, and often curse about one thing or another.  Those that are shady are cold-hearted and would like nothing more than to take your possessions and hard-earned money while bragging to others how they played you.  So how do you know which family members are truly in your corner and which ones are not?

1.  You heard about their negative reputation from others.  Don't think they will make an exception for you because you grew up together.  They typically don't like any one in the family who is successful when they are still struggling.  Sure, they might grin in your face, slap you on the back and say "I love you," but these fools are as crooked as their teeth!

2.  They have far too many excuses for the stuff they do when confronted.  They spend money they aren't supposed to, they go places that they shouldn't, and they place blame on everyone else, but themselves.  These lying folks are never to be trusted.  Sooner or later they will slip up and you will catch them playing you or someone else.

3.  They have many things, but can never tell you where they got them or how much they paid for them.  These slick folks usually have long stories they tell while eyes are shifting, hands are moving, and feet are shuffling.  Thieves will never be straight up with you!

4.  You or others are often a target for borrowing money or contributing to one of their fast money ideas.  What usually ends up happening is someone or a group is being tricked by the shady relative and now they need some help to get out of his or her mess. 

5.  They put spouses, children and other relatives to do their dirty work.  From stealing your children's toys to lying on applications, whatever the shady relative needs he or she will enlist the help of "family."  Those stupid enough to go along will do just that i.e.) tax season--need I say more.  Unfortunately, some will be brainwashed into taking the fall later.

When you know that people in your family, like the ones previously described, avoid falling into their traps!  Don't assume because they are your "favorite,"  a pastor, teacher, attorney, healthcare worker, city council person, or in some other reputable position that they are straight.  These predators are just looking for someone naive enough to be their protege, apprentice, worker, or slave to get their shady business done.  Don't sleep on wisdom!
