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).
