In public school where the majority is black, ive learned that black history, black power, and slavery are the most common topics here. Yet the blacks are the ones always sitting in the back, always failing class - IF they’re even there - fighting, cussing, speaking like ignorant, uneducated fools, stealing, disrespecting one another and their peers, and not giving a damn about anything but themselves and their run-down lives.
Im just saying. Slavery is old news. I understand we have black history month and that theres a reason to celebrate that. But don’t keep playing these bullshit black power and free the slaves movies in my classes, and teaching these same lessons over and over. I have nothing to learn from them that I didn’t already know, and it serves no just purpose when the VERY people that you’re preaching about don’t even take advantage of the rights they’ve won over to themselves, and educate themselves and be productive to this society.
And on one last note: when your watching these movies and being taught these lessons, don’t look to your neighbor that is white, and shake your head in disgust because he/she “harmed” your kind. 1) Your ancestors may.not have even been slaves, 2) No one directly caused YOU any harm, and 3) Who is to say that the very person you’re looking at in disgust’s ancestors weren’t the very whites that helped free your ancestors?
And I conclude.
