Summarizing the Reasons for Negative Portrayals of Black People
Sorry I haven't made a post in a while. I'll jump straight into the topic.
-Train Black Males to think like/become dusty niggas who trick off their money.
- The (over)promotion of sports stars
- The (over)promotion of flashy and/or gangsta rappers
- The media criminalization of black Males, especially Black youth.
- The promotion of passive, assimilation rhetoric, especially by showing Martin Luther King, Jr. all the time.
Reason(s) for it:
- To convince Black Males to become lazy.
- To convince Black Males to have no pride in themselves.
- To instill shame in Black males so that they look for examples of manhood, authority, and genius outside of themselves.
- To stifle any resolve by Black Men to protect themselves, their families, and their community from attacks from outside groups.
-Train Black Females to think like/become sleazy, sassy, uncooperative, and dysfunctional bastard baby-makers.
- The over-the-top portrayal of Black Females in sleazy and/or impoverished situations in movies and TV (Ex: TV shows such as 'Scandal', many Hip-Hop music videos nowadays, the 'ain't nobody got time for that' woman, etc.)
- Consistent portrayal of abusive and/or unstable relationships with Black Men (Ex: many Tyler Perry movies, 'Waiting to Exhale', 'For Colored Girls', 'The Color Purple', 'Their Eyes Were Watching God', etc.)
- Constant fighting and jealousy amongst Black Women ('Real Housewives of Atlanta', 'Bad Girls Club', etc.)
Reason(s) for it:
- To instill a sense of shame in Black Women.
- To promote and champion dysfunction as "normal".
- To turn dysfunction into an entire culture that infects the whole community, starting with the Black Woman.
- To turn her feminine nature into a weapon by warping her consciousness, thus causing her to destroy the very person that she needs the most, which is the Black Man.
-Promote the ideas of Black inferiority and dysfunction in order to justify any wrongdoing against them.
- Systematic Racism-White Supremacy
- The same people that are oppressed the most are the same that the "country" is indebted to.
