The Truth About Black People.

( Many Black people are more interested in embracing the myths of Fantasyland than facing reality. They like the idea of the fearless Black warrior willing to fight to the death for what they believe. But that’s clearly just a myth, if it weren’t we’d either be free, or dead by now. I recognized that fact as a teenager, so I set about the task of educating myself so I could come up with another way of seeking  liberation – one that didn’t involve attacking tanks with a slingshot.

Black people are thinkers not warriors, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It simply means that we’ve evolved to the next level into the people of the future. Because the simple fact is, God made birds to fly, fish to swim, and man to think. That’s why even though man isn’t as ferocious as a lion, or as powerful as the elephant, his intellect has allowed him to maintain dominion over the other animals nevertheless, and that’s exactly what we’re going to have to do with the ignorant two-legged Neanderthals left here among us.
Think about it – the myth about the “Black warrior” is a relic of another time. If the myth were even the least bit true, would George Zimmerman be able to walk around in complete comfort for all these years after brutally murdering one of our children? Absolutely not. So the fact is, while Black people like to go for bad, we’re not warriors – we have too much sense to want to put our lives on the line. While we haven’t gone about figuring out the details, we know instinctively that our problems can be overcome through more efficient means. Well, I’m giving you the details, and they’re very simple – we’ve simply got to make ourselves so knowledgeable that the powers that be can’t function without us. In short, we’ve got to make knowledge the new “soul”.
Black people are thinkers by nature, and what we call “soul” is nothing less than intellectual creativity trying to be unleashed.  That’s why we like to showboat and engage in creativity as a way of life. While we call it “soul”, it’s actually brilliance wiggling around inside of us because we’re not giving it anything else to do. So we need to start giving it something to do, by developing our intellect instead of trying to Twerk it out and fantasizing about being something we’re not. Black people are much too smart to be John Wayne.
Utilizing our creativity and ability to think is the only thing that’s going to move us forward. Going to war just ain’t what we’re about, because in our hearts we know that there ain’t nothing the least bit soulful about bein’ a dead hero. It’s a simple matter of common sense.
It was a combination of intelligence, the simple insight of a 17-year-old Black girl, and the recognition of the value of Black creativity that have people around the world demonstrating over the death of one Black man. That’s a resource that shouldn’t be squandered through stupidity.
