I find it to be very overwhelming how some people feel like they need to straight step on other people in order to be successful. What do I mean by this? I mean how I see some people do, and say one thing, and turn around and act another way. Why is it so hard for a black man to finally see and be successful? To me, it seems like it is being projected that the only way a black man can see any type of leverage in feeling, and actually having a real essence of success is to get it negatively? What I see is that, the only way for a black man to have anything is to literally take from another in order to have.
The only way a black man can have something is to sell a man made substance (DRUGS) in order to feel like they’re having, and living the American Dream. Is this true? If so, why is that? Why is it that one has to feel like they’re being a slave to someone else in order to provide for self and your family? let me give you a blunt example. You have all these PRO BLACK, AFRICAN AMERICAN men who are successful people, and are clearly seen to be in a better position than other black people right?
I see these people on and offline talking real good, but I question they’re intent and purpose because here it is when you have black men out here who are trying to get it together are placed in somewhat of an awkward position, because these same men are left out here hanging to fend for self UNLESS you paying them for they’re fish (Product)?
Can you kinda see where I’m coming from? It’s like the only way some of these people will actually show to be of your best interest is for you to first be placed into a position to where they’re above,and you’re below. These same successful black people that I hear on they’re videos etc. for one, these same want you to be successful, and giving these lectures, but at the same time through they’re actions “You’re On Your Own.”
I have even tried myself to reach out to some of these same people, but through they’re actions there was no interest in connecting with this man who has, and still is working towards all that they preach, and I’m solo, and naught by choice. I don’t just talk, I show to be the change, and would like to unify, and connect with others to build, but these mafas man…. I’m telling you,i feel like they’re full of s***.
It’s hard as hell to try and build from nothing, and I feel like my own so called people don’t make it no better. When I think about the music industry and the successful mainstream rap artist’s who got deals, and opportunities and are in a great positions of power to reach back aren’t, and if they are it’s always a f***ed up catch to it why is that?
So when I think about all of this of what I be actually seeing, I have questions. All thought that, when you show to be self approved you would think that those who say they want to see you do better would reach out and support your work so long as it’s showing constructive energy. All of these Dr.s, and psychologist with no real time connectives to show black men how to build, and rise up, but without all of the bull****.
I welcome any so called political leaders to help answer these questions, because I feel like a black man should naught have to feel any less, because from what I know is that our people have adopted some of the same horrible ways that they speak on so diligently.
