Stop Toming part 2
Unfortunately, to many black people have no problem putting on a modern day minstrel show for the world to see. The sad thing is, it seems to be selling records, DVD, and movie tickets in a major way. When will black entertainers realize that "they" are not laughing with you but at you.
At least Dave Chappelle woke up, but only after he put on one hell on minstrel show for two seasons. The first time I watched his show I found a few of his skits amusing, but most of Chapelle's skits and jokes I found very offensive. When I would talk to other black people about The Chappelle show, many of them could not understand how some portions of is show is offensive to African-Americans (and all black people for that matter).
One thing that I've realized about human beings in my short time on this earth is that most don't like to think. Most people prefer to do the minimal amount of thinking, even those who are academically gifted are guilty of not using their brain. Maybe this is why so many black people particularly the young, do not give thought to how they are embarrassing their people when they make fools(example:50 cent,T.I, Lil Kim) out of themselves for a dollar.
Black people have had the worst History in the last few hundred years than any other race of people on earth. So many blacks in Africa and throughout the diaspora have fought so hard so that we, today's blacks , could live a life in which we are seen as human beings not wild animals.
That is why it is so maddening to see so many blacks today accepting "the Flava-Flava guide to life" as the Bible.
PURE IGNORANCE BELOW
