It's Because I'm Young

Blackness. Jazz. Rap. Politics. History. Religion. When I'm stressed I turn to Coltrane and when I'm angry it's Mingus. James Baldwin is my favorite writer and Yasiin Bey my favorite rapper.  “I am black; I am in total fusion with the world, in sympathetic affinity with the earth, losing my id in the heart of the cosmos -- and the white man, however intelligent he may be, is incapable of understanding Louis Armstrong or songs from the Congo. I am black, not because of a curse, but because my skin has been able to capture all the cosmic effluvia. I am truly a drop of sun under the earth.” - Frantz Fanon

What really is ruining the Black Community is these Uncle Toms dipped in self hatred. Trying so hard to separate themselves from blackness, reaching for this validation from whites playong the “good nigger bad nigger” ideology.

Martin vs. Malcolm, DuBois vs. Washington, DuBois vs Garvey this is no accident. By continuously playing good nigger vs bad nigger you divide blacks. We take sides and rigorously critique each each of the spectrum ignoring the main goal. Division stunts the progression of black unity. Malcolm was killed as his message changed, Martin was killed as his message changed, the closer we got to unity to more we were attacked.

The harder you try to detach yourself from blackness the more you are psychologically destroying your sense of self. Self hatred brings you no closer to whites

    And it’s so pointless because these divisions don’t allow for nuance or real truth telling.
