Ego Is Making Black Culture Become Extinct

Right now in current culture, competition has westernized the black male. Competition has helped molded the conscious culture not to speak out of love. But to prove that I can lead off being more smarter than you. While drinking heavy doses of liquor, bottle by bottle. Sitting in a throne with a head held so high you can not even see the ones falling before you parish. When we think of our economic resources, we talk with hot air spending it out of ignorance.

 

The ignorance of our sin has given a grace to breed a species that only care of themselves. Drinking  poisons that are fed from billion dollar industries that were built off the backs of slaves. Only for them to display our culture as people that need to worship the material possessions. Becoming even more rich as our people die, day by day. While we have our artist re-chant the songs that make corporate america even more rich.

 

It has gotten so bad to the point black media as an indie source now self-destructs on it’s own. Because of the lies that are woven so deep into our culture for years and years. That it has gotten to the point, I do not even have to do it. It self drives it’s own destiny. As the rich smiles in our face, while the broken boy that is black faces a destiny of being shot. Then the rich people laughs even more as our worshiped artist sings this same song.

 

We embraced a capitalistic mindset when we can not accomplish true capitalism that makes this culture go further. While this is happening, the black race is being at face for extinction. Making everything that encompass an African-american culture become non-existent. Ego has became a forefront, making our hands beat on our chest as it has always been depicted.

Paying R-E-S-P-E-C-T To Iconic Singer Aretha Franklin

Aretha has a soulful sound that is defying to our human ears. I do not even think our current generation ears will be use to hearing a sound very pure and powerful. Her singing can command people as if she was to stand atop a mountain summit giving a speech of woman empowerment. When hearing people like her, you wonder where did the soul go in most of our people today. During the civil rights era that took place her break out record was recorded over Otis Redding Respect. People marched and riot to that song. The song she made reflected an out-cry that most African-Americans wanted during that time. Respect for our rights being here on US soil. She sung at Martin Luther King speeches, helping Doctor King raise the spirits of the people fighting the injustice they were going through at that time.

Being an artist bred out of Motown, she had a street named after her in our great city Detroit. Close to Detroit’s Music Hall of Performing Arts, where other acts perform at still on this day. She is an inspiration for people that are faced with trial and tribulations they had coming up. She let the gifts god gave her shine through on the day we reckon of riots and destroying community property in Detroit. She has been a great gift in the eyes of other people. She stood for being a woman of power. Fighting for the rights owed to you as a human being. Coming from a broken family home, she did not let that stop her in sharing who she was and what she stood for.
