Why Spend Time Doing What I Do When People Show To Not Appreciate It?

I ask myself this question all the time. It be times where I don’t feel like people appreciate me, or my work am I wrong for feeling this way? There are times where I feel that I’m just wasting my time trying to bring awareness whether it be by my dealings with people on a spiritual level or through my music. I have mixed feelings about a whole lot of things in life. I see much of what goes on, because I pay attention, and I react to what I choose to, and I touch on what I feel I should when I need to.

Sometimes I feel as if I’m accomplishing nothing while others are accomplishing a whole lot, but the truth is, it may be just that I see what is going on, I don’t like nor approve of what’s going on, and the fact that many people are acceptable to the unacceptable, and though it appears that those who are in what I see to be good positions in this life are really not. Is it a illusion? Maybe, is it that my mind is playing tricks on me? Maybe, and should it matter to me? maybe. 

To be honest, I just wish that I was in a better position to be able to help the people who I see that are down. When I see some of my people they look so wore out, damaged and on they’re last leg. Like we’re just hanging on for dear life, poor with nothing more to offer. And then there’s a flip side where I see other races like Caucasians, Arabs, and now even Asians as well as others races who are seen to be doing better than my people why is this? Well, I do take the time to try and find out why, when I try to ask my people questions about what is it that they want, and do they have anything to talk about, they don’t want to speak on nothing why is this? 

So, when I come across these type, I say to myself why bother? Why spend my time trying to help those who show to not want to even help themselves by simply just talking about the conditions within the community, and touch on some ideas on how we as a people can work towards bringing a much needed change. I try to reach people, and even help people even when I myself too need help in certain areas. My people make it very hard to trust them. Trying to get my people involved is a task in itself, and at times can be very overwhelming. We talk about Black Lives Matter, but yet we’re the ones who are doing the most harm to one another, and to me, that is racist in itself.

How can we expect any type of change when we as a people are not making the necessary changes among-st one another? When I spend the time to do these post, it is in hopes that they will reach, and or be found by those who are trying to have a better standing to whats really going on, and just that alone is part of the reason to why I     find the strength to do what I do, and be who I am today verses who I once was many years prior to. Just today’s thoughts from the artist, and man who tries to elevate the minds of those who seek.

Why do those who are closer to you end up turning on you?

Is it those whose close and know the most that will do you the dirtiest?

I’m noticing this a lot, is it catching like the flu? Why is it that those who are closest to you are the ones who end up turning on you for some made up reason? I found that, it is proven fact that, it is the ones who call themselves down for you, and who say they have your back, your so called homeboy? home-girl? and any other name that one has come up with to define someone who suppose to have your back end up being the ones to STAB YOU IN THE BACK.

Ever watch that good movie where the childhood friend ends up becoming the arch rival, and either trying and or succeeding in killing the friend? Always finding a reason to do the one who has actually been a real supportive, and dedicated friend the worse have you noticed that? And it’s not just in the movies, the movies is just entertainment for you, and that is just good acting right? Wrong!!! Those type of acts being played out are actually being done by, and carried out by people everyday all around the world, but right now, I wanna keep it right here in the territory of Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let’s be honest, many of you know of this either by experience or you’ve seen it done and some actually think that it’s cool as hell to betray a friend? A family member and or someone who through their actions whom have shown to be that RYDA individual and to them or even you, it’s okay? And what might be the response if asked why? The reply may be: “Well, that’s just the way it is” REALLY?

 

So, basically some people actually BELIEVE that, it’s cool for those who are close to you to plot, scheme and have hidden agendas towards you, and even try and hurt and or even kill you? I mean you see it everyday going on in different parts of the streets in Kalamazoo (The Hood) right? Set each other up both men and women, and then make it like that’s the coolest thing to do. I guess my question is, what makes people want to do such foul and dirty deeds to someone who they profess that they love or have love for?

People run around acting like they care, but then turn around and contradict themselves by committing the same acts that they say that they despise. And you know what’s worse? Our race of people (Black/African Decent) got it real bad, but then turn around and try to raise an issue when they feel like they’ve been violated by an opposite race (Caucasians Etc.) or raising hell about what they’ve done to our race of people, but turn around and commit the same acts on your own people? 

You know what I call that? BEING A RACIST TOWARDS YOUR RACE OF PEOPLE IN A VERY NEGATIVE WAY. Now, a young Caucasian actually tried to actually challenge me on that, and some of my own as well of the fact that it is possible to be considered as a racist to your own race of people, and when I got through breaking it down, he (Caucasian) young man actually had to think about it. Now, I’m not saying that I am even right, I’m just asking if it’s possible? Is these type of acts that is being projected from a race of people being demonstrated towards one another through my own race of people? Why of course it is, but you need to have a better standing with the wording that you choose to use.

I don’t do the assumption thing, brother Malcolm X said it best: “Don’t assume anything brother” do you remember? I do, and it makes sense. And while I’m on it, what he experienced is a perfect example to what I’m talking about. Look how we do one another, and I’m supposed to just look at it like it’s just the normal? Naw, not me, that shit is horrible, and for your own people of race to do a man who was only trying to guide the people right, and give them hope for me, that says a lot, and to be honest it hurts even til this very day.

Mathew 10:36 “And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.”

So, I just look at some of the things that go on and try to make these things open for discussion while many choose other wise. I’m not looking for a way to prove that, I’m right I just bring what I feel should manifest to the forefront, because a lot of people out here acting like their on some real shhh…. When all actuality they’re faking, and can’t be trusted. Why should you even want to trust the untrustworthy just for honor sake to allow self to be dishonored in the end?

People nowadays have no control over their emotions and feelings, and all they want to do is find fault in someone else just to save face, and try to avoid the fact that they are possibly victims of their own misguided thoughts and ways picked up and learned from ones external environment? “Leaned Behaviors” is what I call it, and trust me, I know about it. So if you see this as a real problem feel free to engage, because it’s open for discussion. Leave a comment below if you choose, and let me know if I’m wrong or not.

Kalamazoo Michigan native rap artist is approached by two Caucasians.

Was my experience Good or Bad? Watch the video and find out.

So, after watching this video, and that’s if you did were you surprised? Shocked? Did you learn something? Be honest what were your first thoughts on the video before even watching it? Were they Good or Bad? Was it worth taking the time to watch? Was there anything that you learned from it? A lot of questions I’m asking huh? Well, that just goes to show you how important it is to ask questions. One might not see this video to be of importance, and one may even be in total disagreement with the video, but ask your self: “Is it worth thinking about in the end?

Regardless how much programmed hate is being pushed, you still have a choice; a choice to either be mentally enslaved and misguided by others beliefs, thoughts, anger and imbalanced feelings and or emotions, or you find a way to break the chains that have been placed on your mind. No one is born racist, to me, it is nothing more than another mans idea, which it is, and it works quite well wouldn’t you say?

And just so one knows, this was not one of my plans, I was just a part of the plan that I knew not of laid out by the Creator (God/Allah) and the Universe. What happened was bigger than just what happened that day, it was meant, and now I too have a choice, a choice to either shed light on it even though it might not be the entertainment that some have a thirst for and seek, but it’s also a way to show that, what we do, and how we spend our time we are truly responsible for the actions we take either good or bad, and what you choose to do with your mind, time and energy, you are the one must find a way. And there is, you just have to take the time out to see it.

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Whats your take on the video? Was it a pretty good one? Let me know what you think, and your views on racism in America. Do people really be hiding their true feelings towards others of a different race by acting and putting on a mask? Is it okay to be a racist so as long as you don’t infringe, disrespect and or violate someone Else’s rights and life?

There are some very important questions here that really need to be answered, and until people do so we continue to allow lies to stand. Leave a comment if you have any questions. Peace, and many blessings.
