“They Are Still Our Slaves: White Man's Perspective

AFRICANGLOBE – For those of you who heard of it, this is an article Dee Lee was reading on a New York radio station. For those of you who didn’t hear it, this is very deep. This is a heavy piece and a Caucasian wrote it.

We can continue to reap profits from the Blacks without the effort of physical slavery. Look at the current methods of containment that they use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.
Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once said, “The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in a book.
We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the opportunity to read any book on any subject through the efforts of their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are numerous books readily available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon. com, not to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid blueprints to reach economic equality&&& (which should have been their fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all.
GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their disposal. Last year they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas, out of their 450 billion dollars in total yearly income (2.22%).
Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture we care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it. Being primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed. They continually want more, with little thought for saving or investing.
They would rather buy some new sneakers than invest in starting a business. Some even neglect their children to have the latest Tommy or FUBU, and they still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house gives them “Status” or that they have achieved their Dream. They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty because their greed holds them back from collectively making better communities.
With the help of BET, and the rest of their Black media that often broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue to see huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike. (Tommy Hilfiger has even jeered them, saying he doesn’t want their money, and look at how the fools spend more with him than ever before!). They’ll continue to show off to each other while we build solid communities with the profits from our businesses that we market to them.
SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the major ways we can continue to contain them. One of their own, Dubois said that there was an innate division in their culture.”Talented Tenth” he called it. He was correct in his deduction that there are segments of their culture that has achieved some “form” of success. However, that segment missed the fullness of his work. They didn’t read that the “Talented Tenth” was then responsible to aid The Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life.
Instead, that segment has created another class, Buppie class that looks down on their people or aids them in a condescending manner. They will never achieve what we have. Their selfishness does not allow them to be able to work together on any project or endeavor of substance.
When they do get together, their selfishness lets their egos get in the way of their goal. Their so-called help organizations seem to only want to promote their name without making any real change in their community.
They are content to sit in conferences and conventions in our hotels, and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best speakers, not to the best doers. Is there no end to their selfishness? They steadfastly refuse to see that TOGETHER EACH ACHIEVES MORE (TEAM)
They do not understand that they are no better than each other because of what they own , as a matter of fact, most of those Buppies are but one or two pay checks away from poverty. All of which is under the control of our pens in our offices and our rooms.
Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to read, continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are “helping” their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little other than hold lavish conventions in our hotels. By the way, don’t worry about any of them reading this letter, remember, ‘THEY DON’T READ!!!!
Now that you have read this, I want to get an ongoing discussion on the topic. I want everyone who reads this to post your opinions of this letter. Do you feel that is true. If so, in what ways? How can us as the African race get away from these stereotypes or accusations that are raised within this text?
The evidence is provided in this letter. Did this letter take you aback as it did to us? Let us know what you think. Tell your friends to read this also. Remember that in order to have progress you must address the issues pertaining to your people so please keep this in mind and educate your friends and most importantly educate yourselves.

i would have to somewhat agree. positive shows about black men and women are not promote or fought for.  like michael baisden show get cancled while shows like love and hip hop gain ratings. even though street life is real, without a doubt, while do we promote  it in music? our teens will not succeed in a country where the constitution says all men are created equal but when it was written black men weren't even considered men. without education, without knowing the history of a society that does not want you to succeed you will not make it. as black people we have the ability to do incredible things to help society. and we have are still doing this. but we allow them to promote us in a bad light. we put ourselves in a bad light! ignorance exist in all races. but as black people we allow the word to be our label.  our appearance , with the PANTS SAGGING, the crazy dress talking like we had no home training. how can we expect ANYONE to take us serious. in the early 1900s we dressed with pride, and style and we had respect for ourselves. look and our grandparent photos. are their pants sagging? what is the most irritating to me and is so sad is getting in fights (and posting it on certain websites). most of us who listen to kenny smoove are of the older crowd. the teen and preteens are our future. they will not all be basketball, football, baseball players or rappers. so education and people PUSHING them to be something is what needs to happen. when you look at the senate ,or congress or people in government  or fortune 5 top company you don't see a lot  our faces. but when you look at the prison system or the low paying jobs where you need no education you see  several our faces among others. I'm not a highly educated person myself at all as you can most likely tell. but i know if we as a people do not give more involved in a positive way and read the books that he said we don't read we will not make it. we don't need more rappers, we need lawyers we don't need more dope dealers (we aren't the only race that has them to be perfectly clear) we need doctors, educators. we don't need more million dollars preachers, we need people who will up lift you without your money just as jesus did. (i still haven't  found in the bible 1 prophet or followers of jesus who got paid for it)  in order for us to succeed we must stand together and push forward and "DEMAND"  we get and use the same tools to succeed as other races do. otherwise, we will continue to have these discussions on how we can better ourself while other races are doing it. QUIT TALKING AND START DOING !THE AMOUNT OF TIME WE SPEND TALKING WE COULD HAVE HAD IT DONE!.............THIS IS MY OPINION ONLY.
