Once again, there was a debate through a Facebook post.
Recently Donald Glover, also known as, Childish Gambino released This Is America music video and the mass is on FIRE! There are hidden messages within his movements. These substances were performed BRILLIANTLY throughout the video. Yet, the focus from the media is shifted on Childish Gambino's (non-black) partner and not the video, itself.
T: No, tf not.
Me: Yes. This topic is one of those 'Divide and Conquer' type of ordeal.
There is no official definition of the word. Which why it's a problem, the movement itself can be misinterpreted, and plays into the role of 'Divide and Conquer. Pro-Black doesn't mean Anti-White. The very nature of Pro-Black is to uplift and support 'Black' people within its community and help spread the positive image; in order to COMBAT the stereotypical negativity that surrounds the 'Black' community.
If you are within question about this situation, then you should ask yourself this:
What has this individual done for the 'Black' Community? What is his impact or influences? Do I support this individual?
What I say next is intended to whoever it may fit:
In this situation, You're being hypocrite trying to find hypocrisy in an individual. If a 'black' man/woman found someone who makes him/her happy (and it so happen to be someone from a different race); then by all means let that man/woman BE HAPPY. The focus shouldn't be on someone's dating profile, rather, it should be on the influences that person brings.
What you're doing is implanting the stereotypical "Black should only date Black" mindset on someone else. When you know "Love knows no Color." One last thing, if you are a 'Black' person who only dates outside of your race, because "Black people are too ratchet" then YOU ARE THE REAL TOXIC towards the 'Black' Community.
I stand by this. It's long. I promise you, it's straight to the point.
The media portrays this situation to be complex, when in fact, it isn't. Stop trying to provoke rather than support; when there isn't any problem at all. You are unknowingly supporting the 'divide and conquer' rather than supporting your Black Brother. You are depicting racial/Class status, into this situation which is created by society. The same society which plans to divide you from your black brothers and sisters.
If you are afraid of the potential downside of Gambino's influences ( the one where it can lead more men into marrying other races, bcuz of 'black' stereotypes), Then you should tackle the "De-humanizing" mindset that is programmed inside a 'black' person's mind. Everybody is beautiful. Black, too. If you, my black queen, so happen to fall in love with a person who is not black. I will ask you a simple question. Does he make you happy? If, yes. you don't need my validation, but I support your relationship. If he doesn't, then find someone who makes you happy. Push that agenda then you are uplifting the 'black' community. THAT'S how you support the black community, no matter the situation you're in.
The OPPOSITE of this progression would be, for example
Black Male: "All These Black women are the same, bruh. That's why I date this one white bitch. Less Drama."
Black Male: "I date black women too, but they are last place on my list, cuz.....I don't know."
You have individuals who are within this mindset. That's demonstrates human degradation. That's where our attentions should be focused on. Especially the last example I gave out, cuz the male in the last example. Coulda made "his list" that way because of the influences by the media. Not saying 100%, it's that way, but it is a POSSIBILITY.
If the situations of a Black male was like:
Black Male: "Yeah, my current girlfriend is Asian. My last girlfriend was black. it wasn't all that terrible. it just wasn't meant to be, but this new relationship I'm in. She makes me happy."
That is TOTALLY fucking fine with me.
You should question the approach and not the results when it comes these types of situations. Love itself, is simple yet, complex at the same time. That's the beauty of it.
But ask yourself: If you're not supporting someone who has uplifted his community through his art (in multiple areas), not piece of shit of a person, and demonstrates positive influences towards his community. Who's the real Hypocrite here?
