Being an actual brotha from the hood who hustled hard and now living in this so-called mainstream Black life in the outskirts of Atlanta, I cannot help but be a cynic of the day to day hypocrisy of this so-called Black culture around me. I know something got to change but I’m writing this article just to point out some things I have to come across all of the time about our people and the sh*t we always say about things in our own community. So here is my perspective on the ish that some Black folks like to move their mouth about regarding our own people and culture. Ghetto Blacks I noticed on Facebook a certain number but most important, a certain type of cats posting up so-called “ghetto pics” depicting our people celebrating street culture such as wearing something tacky or some overweight sista wearing spandex with her belly button showing. The reason why I say a certain type of cats is because I personally know their character and the one posting ghetto pics are really condescending Black culture or “poor Black culture” and looking down on their own people in an uppity fashion. Radio One founded by Cathy Hughes run this kind of condescending “oh no they didn’t” crap on their so-called “positive Black media” network also. Well, I’m from that so-called some “ghetto culture” that these “I’m better than those ghetto Blacks” people are making fun of. With that news put out there, why my Chicago Housing Authority/West Side K-Town doing better and hustling harder and making big things happen than the middle class Blacks running around like they arrived? The reason why is because that same so-called ghetto culture taught cats like me to be creative with what we got and celebrate our lives regardless of the circumstances around us. If the “ghetto” want to do things like put large wheels and rims on a 20 year old car that been passed down by our uncle or some elder in the community, at least we are being handed down something while most of you uppity cats got underwater mortgages and car payments. Or if we airbrush a background canvas with our hands to take photographs against instead of use a printing service, that’s us using our creative ability to get things done. This is probably the reason why cats in the hood tend to either leap-frog middle class straight to rich class or move into the middle class but these so-called middle-class Black can barely move to upper-class and stay stagnant or drop down to the same poor class they been looking down on. I hope these cornballs realize who they talking around when they come around me trying to make fun of so called ghetto culture, real talk. I'm from the hood and I love my people and you will never ever see me make fun of some so-called "ghetto culture" when the real joke is the do-nothing stagnant middle and upper class Blacks - that's the real funny joke if we want to be honest.... Drugs The Black community ignorance of drugs makes them believe there is some control or spirituality or moral value to drug abuse. What’s worse is some ignorant Blacks fall for that propaganda about weed as a recreational drug. Someone need to tell these idiots there is no such thing as a recreational drug! Let me ask a simple history question - why they execute people in the Middle East and Asia for carrying/distributing drugs? The answer to that question is because those regions learned real fast that drugs were used by the British Empire to pacify and weakened the locales to be easily manipulated to support the British Empire. These cultures seen for hundreds of years the introduction of addictive drugs by the British and Portuguese traders to manipulate the local people. See, the White trading companies give the King or ruler some hash or heroin and when asking for trade deals, the British and Portuguese dangle a crack packet in front of the King or ruler and the ruler agree to whatever trade deal being offered and now we got spices and teas all coming from the Orient with no money coming back to them. The revolutionaries got smart to that and started executing cats who dealt in drugs because they know the collective damage and the true intention of mind control by the British Empire and Portuguese traders as a form of oppression. Today in the African-American community, we got Black people celebrating drug use. We got rapper who bragging they sold cocaine to their own Black people as if that is a badge of honor. We got families being destroyed by the addiction to drugs and we got a racist justice and prison complex system arresting and jailing cats for having less than an ounce of weed on their possession. But what is interesting is what Black people have to say about drug use. Then we got righteous Black folks running around saying that drugs is a moral decision and people need just say no to drugs. Well, the problem with that ignorant statement is I remember my uncles being addicted to alcohol, understanding a genetic code was passed down generations making people predisposition to being addicted based on their parents (mommy) addiction. My grandfather was mixed Black/Native American and I’m aware many Native Americans were genetically addicted to alcohol that was most likely given to them by the White man for that purpose. It is also known that cocaine was given to Blacks to make them work longer hours in the early 1900s and that how we saw all these “crazed Negro” stories from nearly 1900s newspapers. So we got the Black church and cats who believe they are morally superior running around saying the drug abusers bringing this upon themselves instead of understand how addiction is both genetic and used as an oppressive weapon for hundreds of years. So drug use continues in the Black community because some of us want to say drug use is a moral thing and those drug users just need a stronger mind and don’t realize the mind has turned against that person. HIV/AIDS AIDS and HIV has the same level of ignorance in the Black community with drugs where the church and these morally superior Blacks are running around saying this is a disease by choice. I really love all of the hypocrisy in the Black community where I know cats who talk that church ish all the time contracted HIV and now they are outcast by the same ignorant propaganda about HIV they were promoting out of their own mouth. HIV/AIDS already surpassed the point where it is a “gay disease” but we still got Black people who believe that crap. What’s sad is the truth that we got heterosexual Blacks running around f*cking any kind of way and just f*cking based on the most ignorant set of criteria I’ve seen that make me not want to be Black, real talk. I’ve seen and I can testify to this also where 70% of the Black women at any high school, college or university that is f*cking, these sistas f*cked the same one dude who is bragging he f*cked all of those sistas to the rest of us. And you think I’m going to put my d*ck in that chick after realizing the “alpha male” pollinated all these ignorant ass sistas and she just let just any cat penetrate her like that? These sistas are not judging brothas for quality and character no more and running around calling themselves “liberated" talking about they can screw what they like not realizing the ramifications. It is more dangerous and diseases for a woman to going around f*cking any dude than it is for a gay man to go around engaging in anal sex. A lot of fatal ish can enter that vaginal cavity than HIV but sistas seem to ignore that little fact. Look, I’m not worried about gay people – I’m worried about the ignorant ass sista that think these sissy ass brothas is what a brotha supposed to look like and he giving her stupid ass AIDS/HIV and she now infecting the heterosexual community. That’s what’s going on in the Black community and that makes HIV/AIDS no longer a “gay disease” in our communities. I cannot deal with sistas like I used to because of the kind of men they talk about who they want to get penetrated by and I’m looking at dude and see he got that gay stare from a mile away. That is the very first thing I look for in a sista when I get with her – if she talking about some football player look fine, post up some pics on Facebook of some brotha who works out in the gym, or how good looking someone who played in Red Tails look - I’m leaving her ignorant ass alone real quickly because that’s a stupid chick that will be a HIV carrier if she isn’t already a dormant carrier. I deal with chicks that like real dudes for being a real dude, not these cornball sistas that rely on media and her girlfriends to stereotype what a real man should look like – those are the same chicks catching the majority of new HIV cases in the 21st century just as much as gays. Gay Marriage I do not understand for the life of me why the Black community is so obsessed with opposing gay marriage when the state of heterosexual Judeo-Christian Black marriages is so messed up. I think Black folks need to take care of our own marriage/family structure before having an opinion on other people marriages, including gay marriage. We Black folks are definitely in no position to have any opinion about someone else marrying when brothas and sistas can barely have a functional heterosexual relationship. I would strongly encourage the gay cats promoting gay marriage to infiltrate these Black churches and expose all of the hypocritical stuff going on with church like these church husbands f*cking other women in the church and all that other stuff. Go into the Black church and then expose all of that crap, especially those churches that oppose gay marriage like Bishop Eddie Long church – you cats probably already setup Bishop Eddie Long like that and he fell for it. These Black church-going characters are the first one to talk about how the Bible says this or that and they start quoting scriptures and you go to their church and see a White-looking Jesus on prominent display. Then they want to tell me and you it don’t matter what color Jesus is portrayed. And like I said from the beginning which is why I cannot comment on this too much is there is a basic foundation which is why Black folks are so obsessed about worrying about gay people marrying in the first place? I know what the issue is and that we have Blacks who want to exercise the same bigotry against gays that was leveled against us Blacks by Whites. It’s called transference and that is when we redirect things that happen to us to other people, especially negative experiences. To me, the issue isn’t about supporting or opposing gay marriage – the issue that I take notice of is why does this Black person have an opinion about the matter in the first place? Entrepreneurship Black entrepreneurship is the most controversial topic right now because we are running into a so-called gate keeper mentality that want to talk entrepreneurship but really don’t want to see Black people become entrepreneurs because the status quo are scared of Black people succeeding and surpassing the gatekeepers. So what they do is put in place these phony cats that want to talk about entrepreneurship and give yall cornball and totally useless talk on the entrepreneur angle like a hustle/grind blog or some entrepreneurship conference or anything except being about real work. There is no argument against pursuing entrepreneurship in the Black community and you know that and I know that. You know these Republican-based corporations ain’t hiring brothas and sistas no more and want to marginalize us. They imposed unwritten “sanctions” against African-Americans and they colluded on this behind closed doors, it is very apparent they are upset with a Black couple from the South Side of Chicago getting into the White House. However, if you look around at Black media when it comes to Black entrepreneurship, you dealing with a lot of crap and nonsense out there. You got Black Enterprise magazine who after they got called out by Dream and Hustle, started promoting some tagline about personal finance instead of entrepreneurship which shows you they never gave a damn about empowering our community and was only about promoting their Boule and uppity friends in that BS magazine. Then you got the Al Sharpton character who talk more about we need jobs instead of saying we need employers with his ass-backward thinking on how African-Americans need to progress economically. I’m going to tell you straight up – these cats truly do not want to see me and you become entrepreneurs and become more successful than what they want us to be. You cats need to be smart enough to recognize this already and realize you are the one who got to put food on your own table and eat tonight and tomorrow or you are going to go hungry. We got Black folks talking a whole bunch of distracted crap about entrepreneurship and running cornball hustle/grind blogs trying to counter my blog like this is a popularity contest. There is nothing to be popular about in the discussion for doing for self and I hope you cats reading these blogs fully understand that. Dream and Hustle don’t give a damn about 48 Laws of Power, Tyler Perry chip making game or some way of thinking when it comes to the business. The only thing we give a damn about is having brothas and sistas look at opportunities they can apply as entrepreneurial strategies so they can launch businesses and sustain themselves. And we will follow through with real work and action. Besides, I dealt with some of these cats running hustle/grind blogs and can personally tell you they don’t know two-sh*ts about running, growing over even having the guts to launch a business but trying to tell you cats how to do it. I knew a fake hustle blogger who was selling how to e-books and I ordered his book and he didn’t even send me the book or any correspondence after I paid. I had another blogger talking about selling underwear and sock subscription and sent me some cheap socks and underwear shrunken up in a food processor wrap. I’m telling you cats from experience that a lot of Black people do not want to see Black entrepreneurs succeed and will make light of Black entrepreneurship to you. They will distract you on everything except how to go directly in and start your business and succeed.Then you got wannabees that think this is a “hustle culture” fad to hop on and talk about. They will say not everybody can be an entrepreneur and all other kind of stuff and you need to be smart enough to filter out the nonsense and subscribe only to cats who are truly about it. Politics Some of our people actually have the nerve to say “Obama is the President of America, not Black America” and that is one of those statements I hope cats got rebuked real fast if that crap come out of their mouth again. That “he is not President of Black America” statement is so vile with ignorance and self-hatred that I do not want to say what should happen to anybody that make that statement. That statement is basically a coward/subservient statement saying that other people and matters are more important than us even when we stood in line for 3 hours to vote for the first Black President of the United States. Then what do Black people do when President Obama gets in office? We post pics of Barack and Michelle Obama on Facebook talking about they are a lovely couple and personify them instead of demanding President Barack Obama do his damn job and do things for brothas and sistas that have been ignored by previous presidencies. Then President Obama sings Al Green while the Department of Labor has buried in statistics that Black unemployment is rising while the national unemployment is decreasing and Black people are running around pretending nothing is going wrong. Black people already conditioned Barack Obama to believe he don’t need to do anything for Black people except sing Al Green. Maybe Barack Obama sing Al Green while another “Black” president play the saxophone in the background.. But here is the dumbest ish of all Black people are saying – they are telling us President Barack Obama did not want to do anything for us in the first term because he need to get re-elected! Isn’t that the same 1800s slavery conditioning that Black people have to be a corpse in the casket before they see the promise land while others enjoy a life of freedom and privilege? So I have to wait for President Barack Obama to be re-elected while I personally know plenty of Blacks who been marginalized and family passed away due to extreme poverty – something Blacks want to ignore also. Black people like to say a lot of stuff about politics like what the Republicans are about instead of talking about what our current Black politicians are not doing for us. I just spoke on the Pittsburgh area in Southwest Atlanta about how dilapidated that community is when it could be very vibrant but there is no Republicans or Herman Cain controlling that area – that area is controlled by Black politicians! In most of the hoods we will be covering on the wiki, you are going to see Black politician names who been part of that community most of their lives. Overall, Black people like to talk everything about politics except holding our own local politicians accountable to advancing our interests. We don’t have real PACs and lobbies that bring in the kind of money other groups do and all we got is a bunch of cats talking about how Al Sharpton is telling it like it is on MSNBC – get the f*ck on somewhere with that. Wealth Black people look at wealth as attainment of material things instead of realization that a well-managed life is true wealth. The cat that makes $45K has a nice home on the South Side of Chicago and hang out at the community club and block party, take his motorcycle out on Lake Shore Drive and go to Las Vegas and chill is more wealthier than some famous rap star that have to watch their back all the time, worried if they get one of the skanks they screw pregnant and have to make self-hating music to sell to their non-Black audience just to show off expensive cars and jewelry like they own oil wells in the Middle East. Everyday regular Black people are wealthy and have invaluable assets like land, education and talent but we do not use it for our advantage. We got Detroit which is a major modern worldwide city and look at the very few rich to non-existent brothas and sistas reinvesting in Detroit and help bring that city back. They got talent in Detroit but they ain’t working together and doing things and instead turning on each other and backstabbing each other. All of them could be wealthy if they just work together but brothas and sistas working together ain’t protocol in the Midwest. We have communities and neighborhoods and political clout and educational institutions that make our people wealthy but we don’t use it and instead admire some two-bit Black person in the media showing off a fancy car or celebrated by mainstream media. Then you got others trying so hard to assimilate with others instead of realizing all they have to do is invest in themselves and they may find themselves richer. The sad part is there is so many Black millionaires who are rich off investing in their own community that go unnoticed while the majority of Black folks chasing these cats on television who are operating on cash advances and have to spend the next 7-8 years recouping. Black people have to learn how to recognize wealth and start looking in the mirror. It’s plenty of Black celebrities who are sued by someone or an entity who said they gave some Black celebrity money and that celebrity didn’t repay the money or some Black celebrity going through foreclosure on their home. Then yall wondering why they foreclosing on these rich Black celebrities home and don’t realize they never had the home outright in the first place while it’s cats in your own hood who own their ish and making millions a year and you nor Black Enterprise Magazine want to acknowledge that.
