You ever notice how black folks had to fight to do certain things, that they no longer bother to even do now?
Wait! Pause on life.
Before you start attacking me, talking bout “I don’t do that” or “not all black folks are the same”, let me say this.
I’m BLACK! I know that! Relax! I’m not saying YOU don’t do it, I’m just saying I’ve noticed that there are a lot of people that don’t do it.
So if it doesn’t apply, let it fly!
As I was saying …
I’ve noticed that we black folks, yes including me, don’t do some of the things that our ancestors had to fight to do like …
Sit In The Front Of The Bus
So you thought Rosa went to jail for you to walk past all those empty seats in the front of the bus so you could go sit in the last row? Then act a damn fool in the back like you ain’t got no damn sense?
Get it together! Sit in the front and act right!
Just in case you didn’t know, our ancestors weren’t allowed to read.
So explain to me why, now that we are allowed to read, you still won’t pick up a damn book?
Hell, read a freaking magazine! I’ve learned a lot from my Cosmo. (It’s the only magazine I actually pay for!) But Fast Company is good too! And there’s so many damn magazines out there, it’s pretty hard not to find one you like.
Not to mention that newspapers are free! (Well some of them.)
So please explain to me what’s your damn excuse for not reading? I’ll wait …
If you’re over 18, which you should be since you’re reading this blog, then you should be voting.
(If you’re not 18 I’m going to need you to quietly exit now. Lol)
If you’re not voting, please explain to me why. And if it starts with, well our vote doesn’t count, please have several seats. How would you know if your vote counts or not if you don’t even vote? How would we know, if there are millions of people just like you with that state of mind?
If we don’t vote of course it’s not going to count!
So try again! Better yet, go sign up to vote now! Because if you don’t vote and we end up with Donald Trump, I’m coming for you! LOL
Im sowwy, but this ain’t really English.
Dat ain’t propa’ partna.
Yes, I do it too, but the difference with me is. I can also speak proper English, I just choose to speak in slang. (Mainly because I’m lazy and speaking proper is a lot more work. LOL)
However, I hate hearing people speak slang, and only slang. If you can’t speak proper English, you shouldn’t be speaking slang. Learn the actual language first!
Go To School
I’m not going into statistics or anything on this one, because I know way too many people myself that haven’t finished HS.
And clearly it’s an issue if there are commercials about it right? LOL
However, the least we can do is finish HS. I don’t care how much you hate school, suck it up and get through it.
Then you can do what ever you want after that!
Because if you haven’t noticed, jobs are getting harder to come by, and people with bachelor degrees can barely get a job. So imagine what it’s like for those who don’t have a HS diploma!
So do you agree, or do you just think I’m crazy? LOL
Got something else to add to the list?
