DO YOU WANT TO SPEND YOUR DOLLARS, ON BLACK BUSINESSES, OR ORGANIZATIONS, THAT DO NOT SUPPORT OTHER BLACKS, WHO ARE ALSO DOING WHAT THEY CAN, FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE BLACK COMMUNITY?Here is a list of some of the ones who has not supported me or this Blog. Which is dedicated to fighting systematic discrimination, against the Black community and other marginalized groups.
Giving the appearance, that they are for black culture and the black community, when they don’t support other blacks, who are also be doing what they can for the advancement of the black community. Most of them capitalized on the fact that they are from the black community, when it comes to promoting their own self interest. (which may have the appearance of a black owned business, or agency), but that is where the similarity ends with some of them. They don't really support others who are dealing with the same unjust system, that targets us as a community. In fact most, if not all of the ones that I have mentioned here, are sell outs, in one way or another.
To 'sell out' is defied, as an act of deliberate betrayal, or compromised. And the reason in my opinion doesn't really matters why you do it. I would term anyone who betrays someone of their own race, community, e.t.c, as a sell out. Keep your reasons, or excuses for yourself. It is the act of betraying, that makes you a sell out. This would even include those blacks who 'turns a blind eye', i.e refused to support another black person, whose actions are in helping to maintain the same community. Or on the other hand, someone who may do something for the wrong reasons.
And Unless you are blind and dumb, this Blog of mine, does help to advance the cause of the Black community. It has done so from day one, and has made a public stance against the discrimination and other negative actions against the black community. The truth is that some blacks fear the backlash, for supporting someone like me, from the establishment. It is the divide and conquer rule, that has worked so well against us, for the last four hundred years of slavery. Yes, I said slavery, because we are still an enslaved race. Some of us has managed to free ourselves, but the majority are still slaves today.
Are Black people weaker than other races?. Some are beginning to ask this question, as so many blacks are so susceptible to outside influences and has a lack of racial pride. This is a down right personal attack against some of them, in the hope that they would change. The reason being that they are also visible members of the black community and for some they are also so called role models and or mentors, without others knowing how they treat other blacks, as members of the same community. If you are going to represent your community, to the broader community, as businesses, organizations, or whatever, then at least show some solidarity. Else you may be exposed and then look like a fool.
