Don’t laugh at that picture above. This so-called proud African man actually married that creature. I know it’s hard to believe. This is a subject that shouldn’t even have to be addressed. But it seems to be a bit of a problem in the conscious community. It would seem that if a person is pro-black and race conscious that they would want to marry a black person. So it would seem. But we have these people some refer to as Fake Hoteps,that are making the truly conscious look bad. I have even seen it with black conscious black women too. They have on their African clothing,wearing braids or dreadlocks….and holding the hand of a white man! This is absolutely insane in my mind!
I even had some fool that told me this is not a contradiction. This is a major contradiction. If you love your African culture,love your heritage…it would be natural to want to be with a black person. You would want to pro create with a black person. Why would you want to dilute your bloodline with another race? It makes no sense. If you love yourself and how you look..why would you want children that don’t look like you? This is not about hating another race either. This is about self love and loving your own people.
This is a good video(above) by Pharaoh Allah. He speaks about all the pitfalls to dating white people. While he is a bit animated at times I agree with his overall point. And why it doesn’t help the black community in the long run. Many of these fake dudes talk about black power but it’s all just an act. If you’re going to talk about it then you need to BE about it! I’m tired of all these contradictions in our community. And this also goes for people using the excuse of “people of color” so they can marry Hispanics and Asians. I’m well aware of this ongoing trend.
This picture(above) looks ridiculous! What is this white man doing in African clothing? He looks like a damn fool! But this is the type of silliness and confusion that happens when we date/marry other races. It doesn’t matter if the person is Mexican,Chinese,Filipino,Cuban or Japanese. If they are NOT a black person and you claim to be pro-black…you are full of crap! You’re a walking contradiction. And you make the rest of us(real conscious) look bad. And we get lumped in the same group of disingenuous conscious people. And I’m sick of it. If you want to date/marry other races then just do it. Go make some mixed babies and go on with your life. But no more of this stupid ass fence riding. And please stop saying you’re conscious,pro black or a Pan Africanist….because it’s obvious you are not. Peace.
NBA star Kobe Bryant retired last week. Although the Lakers had a horrible year and didn’t make the playoffs,Kobe went out with a bang. He scored 60 points in his final game. It was very impressive for a 37 year old man with diminishing skills. As a kid I was a big Laker fan. I watched the Lakers win five championships during the “showtime era”. Although as a kid I liked Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Magic Johnson,I never cared for Kobe. He was an amazing athlete but I saw him as a ballhog that never passed the ball enough. Kobe always seemed aloof and standoffish to me. He also didn’t seem too involved with black culture and lacked a black identity.
I loved when football icon Jim Brown called him out a few years ago on Arsenio. I loved watching how Arsenio squirmed in his seat. Since he’s a big fan of Kobe and such an ass kisser. But Brown was correct. Kobe lacks a cultural identity and no real connection to black people. I remember when he marred his teenage wife Vanessa,his parents were against it. I don’t blame him. This Mexican woman brought nothing to the table and Kobe didn’t want a prenuptial agreement either. That’s when I knew this man was a damn fool! She has two kids with him so when she leaves his ass she’ll will take a huge load of cash with her. And she will take that wealth back to her community. When will these dumb black athletes wake up? Why do they keep marrying these non black women? All they do is use these brothers for their money.
And of course back in 2003 he was accused of raping a white woman. There was a lot of hype over this case. It seemed like it would be another OJ Simpson type of case. But she was paid off so we never got to see a big trial. I don’t know if Kobe raped her or maybe he was set up. But either way it did damage to his career. But he won another championship and…all was forgiven. After winning another ring he was back in good graces with his fans. But Kobe proved that he is just another black buffoon. He is not anyone for black children to admire.
Just like his idol Michael Jordan in many ways. Neither one feels they owe black people anything. Blacks have made them millionaires but they don’t speak out on our behalf. They think people should be seen as individuals. They are both apolitical too. And they both have children with Latina wives. Making sure that their wealth will go to other races. So long Kobe! You wont be missed.
