Self Hatred and Self Destruction Are Far Greater Problems to Black Americans Than Racism!

Institutional racism is the least of the problems facing the masses of Black Americans today.

Yes, institutional racial is real and should be addressed.

However, the soft bigotry of low expectations, miseducation, illiteracy, broken families, HIV/AIDS, high abortion rates, mass incarceration, Black on Black crime, and pure self hatred are all the results of our own decisions.

These things are destroying us far more so than what anyone outside of predominantly Black communities can do to us.

Out of envy and jealousy, we seem to hate to see each other succeed. It’s called the “crab mentality”. I have experienced it first hand.

We are our own worst enemies.

If we can get with that- not looking for anyone else to blame- raise the level of expectation of ourselves and each other, and return to our first works of commitment to faith and family, we still have time to save the next generation.

A brief rant!

    Self hatred is definitely a major problem and our desire of assimilation. We don’t know our history nor respect yet we devour the history others choose for us. Indeed it is time for us to wake up. Certainly not going to get there by loving our enemies while we hate ourselves.
