What's Right with Being African American in the Community, Workplace?

Oftentimes we dissect ourselves in circles and mention much about what's wrong with us.  However, there is a lot that is right with us and others benefit much from our strengths and weaknesses.  Look around and you can see the impact that African Americans have made for decades from music to sports.  Those, on the outside looking in on our circles, always find a way to monetarily benefit, get some kind of name recognition, and more.  If we saw ourselves in the way that others saw us, then maybe many of us would be millionaires!


As we know, not every non-black has personal prejudices toward African Americans, but what some do have is a curiosity, a compassion, and a hunger for the truth.  The kind of truth that wasn't given to them by parents and grandparents about blacks.  "Why is it that black people say...Why do they react to...What is it about African Americans that they do...," these non-blacks ask us.  Then some knowledgeable black person will try to answer the questions for the rest of us.  Sometimes this works, but other times it doesn't since there really isn't a "one size fits all" kind of belief within the black community.  Just when you think you know something, you don't know anything about black!


Being that we all come in different shades, we also come from different backgrounds, and have interesting views about us and others.  But many of our people have been brainwashed through various media to prefer one issue over another, to act in ways that often keep us back rather than push us forward and eventually cause further harm to our self-esteem.  Than God for those who wake the community up and say, "Don't you see what is happening?  Do you see how they are using your own people against you?  Do you see the sell-outs?  Why do you want to be a part of that group?" 


The goodness of being black is knowing that you can rise above almost anything!  When you know your family history and the struggles they have undergone just trying to survive in communities, workplaces, families, and other places, you will say and do things that will make people re-evaluate their stereotypical mindset, "Wow, I didn't know you were as intelligent as you are.  I didn't know you had that kind of skill.  I thought that most blacks were..."  What's right about being black is when we do what's right!


African Americans determined to come up higher for self first is something worth mentioning in this piece, because if there is no love for self, there is no love for community.  These people are mentally strong, have big ideas, have coordinated the plans to get things done, and don't quit until they have made an evergreen impact.  They are built to withstand opposition and fight to do what's right.  Sometimes the only true enemy is the enemy of self!  There are those who self-destruct because they are ill-equipped to handle the tasks presented before them while pretending to be something they are not.  They have inflated egos and so there prideful ways cause them to get into much trouble with people who could have been great allies.


It doesn't take much to live a righteous life.  If one leaves his or her negative past behind and chooses to live honestly while genuinely loving others, he or she will at least get his or her foot in a door that is divinely chosen for him or her.  But if one wants to lie his or her way into establishments while using people, places and things to propel him or her in devious ways, then the individual will surely fall sooner or later.  Sometimes doing wrong appears like it's doing right when in all actuality it is what it is--wrong.  The twisting of truth and the support of misdeeds is what keeps the false teachers, preachers, mentors, and others in business.  Meanwhile, deceivers make promises to help a handful at the expense of the majority.  The so-called "favorites" have no clue in some of these well-established circles that they are merely snitches, servants, slaves, whores, errand boys, and more for the wolves in sheep's clothing.


In order for those to stay right or stay in the light, they must defend goodness.  Stand up for truth!  Have boundaries and know when to say, "I will not participate in this act...I am better than this.  I know the God I serve and He wouldn't approve."   Those black folks who have little concept on what it means to "get it together" or "get it right" most likely have been like pigs wallowing in mud for far too long.  Simply put, step outside of the box, read any manual that tells you what the rules of the game are, and test those instructions based on how you would want to be treated.  If it looks or feels wrong, keeps you up at night, makes you wish you should be doing something different, causes you to constantly watch your back, then you have to question, "Why I am putting myself through this?  Is God really in this?"  Chances are He's not.
