OPEN LETTER TO DEREK CAFFE ON BLACK SELF ACCOUNTABILITY….
Disclaimer: It is ok for people to come and engage under my statuses and notes and disagree, for that is the beauty of debate; however, oftentimes I will take some of the exchange and capitalize off of it by making another note addressing someone exclusively for something they’ve written. In this note my good friend Derek will be addressed for his lack of understanding on how black self accountability can be suppressed. It is quite sad that in this day in age you have some Blacks who feel because they have a higher level of consciousness (Derek is an Atheist) that they’re some what better than the rest. They suddenly forget where they come from and forget how the struggle is for everyone else. They have the “I did so can you” mentality, and they look down on all other Blacks who are not as super as themselves and call them victims, yes they’re victims but not victims to their own doings, but rather victims to an unforeseen force that is not controlled by themselves. In addition, my good friends Vicky and Aljorie as well, will slightly be addressed in this post, Vicky is an atheist too. As a Black Atheist myself, I find that many other Black Atheist are extremely quick to assume superiority over other Blacks, because they feel they’re mentally superior, this note will squash that right now. Again, just because a person may feel they’re mentally higher, that does not mean you should ignore the realities that everyone else have to face on a daily basis. It isn’t wise to generalize your own experience and hold that up as the standard upon which all other Blacks should be judged. At the end of the day if you’re Black in America you’re still subject to all of the discriminatory polices that affects Blacks whether, you’re an Atheist or Theist, but that is beside the point, I shall continue:
Derek and Vicky believes that Blacks have a lack of self accountability, now of course they’ve showed no proof for their assumption but let’s take a look at this. The last time I checked there are millions of nonprofit organizations out there doing what needs to be done in Black communities and there are loads of Black households who are producing well rounded Black children. What makes Derek a sad case of human matter, is his outright usage of typical stereotypes against his own kind. Derek, because he think he has “made it” now uses stereotypes to talk down to others whom he labeled victims and imbeciles. Derek is like Michael Steele, one of those Blacks that feel because he has a little credentials he has now arrived—NOT! In America you’re still subject to disparate impact and loads of discriminatory policies that are designed intentionally or unintentionally to hold you back. Derek, Vicky, and Aljorie believes that Blacks should just hop over the hurdles because they had done it and that govt should be ignored in the entire equation, yet they’ve FAILED to realize how govt plays a crucial role in both harboring and implementing polices that affect Blacks negatively. Why should there be hurdles in the first place? Looks like the U.S honor MLK just to preserve an image? Has the work of MLK truly been implemented? What came as a result of the Civil Rights Movement, when we still have record high disparities in place, which are again ignored and neglected by govt itself?
Again, govt will always have a role in discriminative policies, and when people feel as though they’re not being heard. The constitution guarantees us all the pursuit to happiness and freedom, and until that promise is fulfilled FOR ALL, then govt plays a crucial role in seeing fit that everyone is treated properly. Every time Blacks feel the need to demand from govt it is a problem. All other kinds of people can reap the benefits from utilizing govt except Blacks. Blacks are whiners as Derek calls them, they do nothing for themselves and are afraid to take “self accountability”. This is the collective ignorant thought pattern of many Americans when it comes to those who are underprivileged. Furthermore, what makes matters worst is that even some Blacks themselves believe the BS—SAD!! Derek, you may be Superman, or so you think, but everyone who takes self accountability doesn’t always make it buddy. Self accountability means nothing if one is living in a society that has barriers in place for him/her to never make it. Studies are done all the time that proves job discrimination to be prevalent. Why should a man take the time out to go to Harvard but yet come out and still not be able to get a job? Why should a man with a bachelors degree who has three jobs, have to find a fourth job and still not be able to pay for his daughter’s education? There are millions of people on a daily basis taking accountability, but again that effort is met by a force that is stronger than one individual and even a dozen individuals and that force is institutionalized racism and govt. The history of mistreatment upon Blacks in this country cannot be denied and because it once existed here blatantly, you cannot deny the FACT that at any time it can return or still be here. The sixties isn’t a period of time that existed centuries ago, you still have people who lived within those times ALIVE TODAY, and even many of those people will tell you much has not changed. The decades of social science research cannot be denied as well. Derek feel as though he has arrived, arrived to what? Ok you joined an army and defended a country that has never done anything for you? So now you feel as though you owe something to a land that has done nothing but perished the very essence of your being—Stockholm syndrome, I’d say!
These types of coons are what I called the Cancer to those Blacks who do try to make something of themselves but are held back by the system. People such as Derek gives credibility to White Supremacy, because instead of looking at the totality of one’s situation, Vicky, Aljorie, and Derek will judge all Blacks together without ever recognizing the aggravating and mitigating factors that surrounds each person’s unique situation. This is a result of social engineering. Some people are forced due to their circumstances to chose between the lesser of two evils, not every choice a person make may be an option orchestrated by himself. For instance, a poor teen mother needing food for her baby, and as a result going out to shoplift the food, yes she had a choice to allow that baby to starve or to get the baby some food by any means necessary (lesser of two evils). The govt and special interests that profits off of the decapitation of Blacks don’t want people to think CRITICALLY about the conditions in which Blacks find themselves because if they did they just may realize that there is more to it than what you see on the surface. Self accountability can be SUPPRESSED! That is a matter of FACT! There are millions of Black men who come out of jail and want a better life but can’t achieve that due to polices that impact them disproportionately. As a result, they are left to the same devices that got them into trouble in the first place—SAD and very barbaric of this nation to allow that. Critical thinking is a must in order to understand the complexity of this issue. It is so sad that as a self proclaimed Black Atheist even Derek is highly selective in how he chooses to utilize his critical thinking capability if it is even present at all. Most atheists acknowledge only facts, yet it is heavily sad to see that when it comes to these issues here both Vicky and Derek falls short. Aljorie claims to be a believer in a higher being, yet she failed to prove countless times how this higher being has helped Blacks—SAD again!! The worst types of people out there are those like Derek who will use stereotypes to belittle his own kind. Vicky as an Atheist even went as so far to search up manufactured stats on wedlock. Now as an Atheist what are you worrying about wedlock issues for (typical Christian/Republican rhetoric), I thought you were an atheist? I come to realize that there are going to be some Blacks out there who will think they’re better no matter what, and because they THINK they’ve overcame something they feel everyone else can do the same! These types of Blacks REFUSE to recognize the obstacles that still exist, yet they feel as though they’re the mold upon which all Blacks can look to, to base their lives off of—Pls! Derek you’re far from a millionaire, yea you have your little business but it isn’t hitting on shit because it isn’t widely known, and so what you joined the U.S Army, an Army that fights for U.S Corporate interest and not the people, what do you want a little Debbie cake? There is nothing about you that makes you any much more better than the next Black fellow whom is struggling and looking to blame govt for its malpractices and negligence. Govt and capitalism has failed you just like the rest of us buddy, FACE IT!
Blacks are apart of this democracy like everyone else, and because of that we have a right to demand from our govt. We pay taxes and we helped to build this land, hell we built the Whitehouse. But according to Vicky those who complain ain’t doing shit with themselves—PROVE IT! MLK complained about govt would you say the same about him Vicky? Nuff sed!! Just because it is possible for one to jump those hurdles that doesn’t mean the hurdles and the troubles they cost should be ignored. If that were the case MLK, Malcolm and the alike would have stayed shut! Instead they kept speaking up for those who could not overcome the obstacles like they have. Derek, for some reason you seem to think you’re your own island, and with that mentality you won’t last long buddy, reality will be sure to hit you soon! Racism plays a huge part in the “self decapitation” that is prevalent within the Black Community today. Blacks were stripped of their entire essence of being, their culture, their language, etc. For some, not knowing thyself has a huge impact on their lives. Feeling as though you’re exiled in a nation your people had helped to build can be psychologically damaging. Being the science project of White Men and their screwed up theories and studies can also lead to mental strain. Again, just because you SUPPOSEDLY had gotten over those things, that doesn’t mean everyone else can/should. These injustices MUST be spoken about until they’re damint gone! Because until there is TRUE EQUALITY in this land, people are going to ALWAYS have govt and racism to blame after they’ve seen that they put their all into something and still failed to accomplish their goals because of forces that are out of their control. Derek, govt has a duty to make sure everyone is comfortable and heard, this is why we vote in people to represent us in govt, but of course the only people that are comfortably represented in the U.S Congress are Whites, which clearly isn’t a surprise given the history of this nation, but Derek, Vicky and Aljorie will have one to believe that it is what it is and one should run like an Olympic Gold Medalist and hop over the fucking hurdle—HELL NO! That isn’t what the constitution guarantees. Nobody should be forced to ly down and take it up the ass while certain people get to reap the benefits of others being oppressed. Whites have all the status they have today because others had been purposely held down. Imagine if there weren’t any disparities in any area? Imagine the presence Blacks would have, we too are capable of being scientists, doctors, lawyers, etc.. Why should young Black children be forced to only aspire to be entertainers? (Look up Labeling Theory and then observe the media) Racism plays a huge role in every negative thing Blacks have to face in this land, and history shows this. Derek, FACE IT! Don’t be embarrassed of who you are and where you come from. Don’t think you’re better because you have a two cent business and was in the Army, because at the end of the day nobody cares, you’re still a Black man, who is subject to all types of negative policies that are designed to beat you down.. FACE IT!!! At any time that ass can be shot and killed by a big city police officer without any form of justice prevailing. At anytime some form of institutionalized racism can knock on your door and slow down your goals. FACE IT!! Just because you THINK you’re doing it, that doesn’t give you the right to call other Blacks whiners, who the hell are you? What have you accomplished, what makes you stand out so damn good from the rest of us? I am not trying to force you to denote your own accomplishments; however, one should NEVER forget where he came from and never forget the history behind the struggle. Things are not different today; I would say it is more subtle due to changes in morale. But Derek you are in NO POSITION to speak how you’re speaking. Using stereotypical nonsense isn’t the way to describe ALL BLACKS, Derek. Any one whom is SMART would know that. You have a serious case of Stockholm Syndrome but considering the fact that you’ve joined the racist U.S Army I can understand why you now hate your own kind and think you’re better, but see if you are truly all that, then that business of yours would be known world wide and your ranking would be much higher than what it is, all one has to do is reflect upon his/her life to see how racism has affected them, stop living in denial Derek, there is still hope for you. Vicky you said that Black Sisters get on you because you’re lighter etc, c’mon you should be smart enough to know not to develop a disdain for your own kind due to such pettiness. See some Blacks say the things Derek and Vicky say because of bad relations with other Blacks and so it makes them feel good to speak down to other Blacks—Very babyish! Developing a character like that of an Uncle Tom is not cute, Derek, Vicky and Aljorie. One cannot claim to be of higher consciousness and then fall short when it comes to discussing the realities that Blacks have to face in America, that’s some flip flopping shit! You three are still my buddies lol, but let’s get it together folks!
