New Black revisited

[from his Oprah interview, this post and -read it—-> this article]

P: “The ‘new black’ doesn’t blame other races for our issues.”

me: The “OLD black” doesn’t blame other races for our issues either…unless ofc you’re talking about blaming another race for all the actual things they actually have done and are still doing to us -like racially profiling us, stalking and shooting us just for walking home, disproportionately arresting & jailing us for things like marijuana usage, denying us the right to vote, denying us home loans at the same rates as non-black races, suspending our pre-school children at many times the rate of their children, and other stuff like that. Otherwise, us “old blacks” aren’t blaming anyone else for anything (please see also - structural racism)

P: “The ‘new black’ dreams”

me: The “old black” dreams too. We are all but MADE of dreams. Your success is as much a byproduct of “old black” dreams as any time you personally put into your career

P: “and realizes that it’s not a pigmentation; it’s a mentality.”

me: Um…yeah…about that. Let’s do a little thought experiment. Imagine you accidentally stumble into the middle of a KKK rally out in the middle of BFE. Now, which is going to determine how I’m treated? My “mentality” or my skin’s pigment? Now imagine that the rest of the world has unseen elements of people who harbor a KKK type mentality…will my “mentality” work any better with them? Take your time with that one

me: Tbt, that’s even more ridic than that “blaming other races” bullshit. Black isn’t a fucking mentality or an attitude. It’s a fact of life, just like being tall or short. What if I have an off day (it could happen) and my “new black mentality” is turned down to zero…does that mean I suddenly cease being black? Do I no longer have to worry about being viewed as suspicious just because I’m out walking-while-black?


P: “And it’s either going to work for you, or it’s going to work against you.”

me: Soo…just to recap, if an “old black” somehow fails to be successful in a society that’s been structurally engineered over the last 400 or 500 years to specifically favor *another* race, let’s say the white race, then that’s all THEIR fault? No one else’s? Not even a tiny little bit? Just them alone. Got it. (see also - victim blaming)


P: “And you’ve got to pick the side you’re gonna be on.”

me: I agree that SOMEONE needs to re-evaluate and pick a side, but I don’t think it’s “old blacks.” Acknowledging cold hard reality is not -repeat- NOT the same as “blaming other races” and no one is saying black people shouldn’t always try their hardest -overwhelmingly most of us do & sometimes I think it’s a small miracle that lots more of us haven’t completely given up, considering the odds we often face

me: But implying that we should just “don’t worry be happy” is incredibly bish basic. It’s like ONLY training a Brinks armored car guard that nobody wants to rob them, so therefore they should just go out, stay positive & have a good day. But if they DO get robbed, well then, guess they just weren’t being positive enough

me: I think “new black” = post racial = color blind = BS

If Panther has a cameo Imma need it to be him meeting the Avengers, looking at their Quinjet and all their advanced technology, and then just chuckling and saying “Oh, that’s cute.”

Iran mother spares life of son’s killer in dramatic turn of events

An Iranian mother spared the life of her son’s convicted murderer with an emotional slap in the face as he awaited execution with the noose around his neck, a newspaper reported Thursday. The dramatic climax followed a rare public campaign to save the life of Balal, who at 19 killed another young man, Abdollah Hosseinzadeh, in a street fight with a knife back in 2007. (AFP)
