10 Kinds of Black People Who Probably Hate Your Guts.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Lets be real.  Not every black person is your friend.  Not every black person cares about the black community.  So, the idea of “black unity” has to evolve in such a way that helps us to understand who our friends are and who our enemies are.  When I spoke to Dr. Steve Perry this week about our event in Washington DC on December 1, one thing we agreed on is that we are sometimes fooled into believing that we should stand behind another black person, just because they are black.  This, my friends, is a flawed strategy.

So, in order to further clarify my point on the matter, I thought I’d compile a list of 10 black people who probably hate your guts.  These are black people who look like you and me, but clearly do more harm than good to us and our children.  Here it goes:

1)      Rappers who hate black women and want to put your kids in a casket

We know that rappers are controlled by their labels, but they still hold some ability to decide what they spit when they are in the booth.  Also, most marketing experts will tell you that repeating a message to young impressionable minds DOES have an impact on their actions.  So, let’s stop pretending that repetitive messages of black men calling women b*tches and hoes, and encouraging drug addiction among black kids isn’t hurting them.  Some of these men are as harmful  as the KKK.

2)      Politicians who care more about protecting their power than fighting for the black community: A politician with a black face might actually be a politician in blackface.   Many of our political leaders have pledged allegiance to the very same systems that have served to oppress us for centuries.  Don’t let the makeup fool you.

3)      Wealthy entertainers and business people who see no reason to give back to their community:   If your community elevates you to economic success and you feel no obligation to your community, you’re no different from the man who receives 10 Christmas gifts and doesn’t buy anything for anyone.  A family cannot survive if an individual extracts resources from the family, but brings nothing to the table.   If you don’t care about the black community, then the black community should not care about you.  Period.

4)      Black people who think that being educated means you’re “acting white”: There is nothing white about being educated.   This kind of intellectual bully?ng should be st?mped out where it stands.  Misery lovesJeezyTurkeyGiveaway company, so anyone encouraging you to stay inside the cage of ignorance is simply keeping you down so they don’t feel bad about their own lack of achievement. It’s OK to sl?p em….just kidding….no, not really…..go ahead and sl?p em, I’ll forgive you.

5)      Black leaders who take so much corporate money that they start telling a pack of lies:  Part of the reason that black leadership doesn’t exist is because many of our most prominent citizens are spending so much time trying to find profitable alliances that they forget to advocate for the people.  When we have leaders that are spending more time fighting for immigration and gay rights than they are against black unemployment and incarceration, we know we’re in trouble.

 6)      Pastors who use the pulpit as way to get access to your wallet and your v?gina:  Preacher, p?mps and rappers can sometimes have a lot in common.  The way the pastor repeats himself over and over again, with slow, seductive music in the background is a common technique in hypnosis designed to make your subconscious mind open for suggestion (“Give me all your money”).  Not every preacher is working against his/her own people, but we know there are some snakes in the pulpit (you hear that Eddie Long?).

 7)      Black corporate types who make their money convincing black people to consume unhealthy products:  You know that guy who works for the marketing company that helps white corporations sell liquor and cigarettes to black people?  That’s the guy I’m talking about.   They can make their money, fine.  But at what expense?  Don’t presume that a black person is successful just because they drive a nice car.  If you sold your integrity to get a bigger paycheck, then you’ve signed yourself up for spiritual bankruptcy.

 8)      The neighborhood drug dealer who gives away turkeys at Thanksgiving:  Addictions are one of the most costly phenomena in the African American community.  It spawns abuse, incarceration, homicide, and countless tragedies in our families.  If I could blow up every liquor store, crack house and weed spot in America right now, I would (wait, throw BET and Vh1 into the mix).  We’ve lost too many otherwise productive citizens to the vices of drugs and alcoh?l.   Nothing great has ever been achieved by a group of people who sat around getting high and drunk every day, that’s a fact. So, it’s not normal that so many black teenagers think that drinking and smoking is cool….it’s not illegal to study.

 9)      The man with 10 kids by 8 different women and the women who choose to make babies with him:  How much unprotected intercourse do you have to have in order to produce so many kids?  So, not only are you a walking STD, you may have also traum?tized all of your children by forcing them to grow up confronting the struggles of abandonment, abuse and economic despair.  Don’t tell me that you’re being a good dad by buying Christmas presents every year, that doesn’t mean sh*t (excuse my French, but I can’t help it). But as we consider the perpetual baby daddy, we must also look at the long list of women who’ve chosen to sleep with him.  By allowing their desire for s-xual gratification to overcome the need to protect their children with a good father, they are just as guilty of being a loveless parent. Our children pay for our sins and poor choices….and then they repeat them.  This leads to an entire generation of children who are wandering lost in our communities without adequate structure and guidance at home.  That’s where the “knockout game” comes from.

  10)   Parents who raise their sons to be little boys instead of grown-?ss men:  Call me old fashioned, but I believe that men must be prepared and taught to lead.  They must be equipped with the essentials of manhood, and typically, it is the father that gives this to the son.  But the truth is that the lack of male role models and rise in the number of broken homes has created millions of young men who can’t fight their way out of a paper bag.   They know how to make babies, but don’t feel it’s important to take care of them.  They want to have money in their pockets, but don’t have the determination to go out and make it happen.  They can dribble basketballs with the best of them, but can’t read the first chapter of their black history books.  We must understand that, similar to faulty automobiles, WEAK MEN ARE BUILT.  That sorry, pathetic man who isn’t taking care of your kids was raised by someone who probably thinks they did a good job.  If we are to overcome many of the problems in the African American community, we can start by building better men.  Mass incarceration has weakened and emasculated the black man beyond belief, and we must fight like h**l to change this.

That’s my list, love it or hate it, and that’s what Steve Perry, Etan Thomas, Janks Morton, Towanna Freeman, Wilmer Leon and I are going to talk about in Washington, DC.  It’s time to start having conversations that are REAL, and political correctness must be thrown out the window.  MSNBC, FOX, Democrats, Republicans and all the other groups seeking African American assimilation are NOT invited to this discussion, we need to talk about OURSELVES.

    Everything that everyone says that black people need to do, we’ve got black folks already doing this. We got Linda Boasmond of Cedar Concepts, owner of chemical manafacturing plant on the South Side of Chicago and her company is making over $20,000,000 a year. We’ve got tons of successful black entrepreneurs that most people ain’t never heard of. Tons of them. We got Ron Hayes, owner of goodphellaz barbershops in Atlanta, Jahmal Ramsey, owner of 2B Groomed barbershop in Philadelphia, and Kim Kimble of Kimble Hair Studios in L.A. Then you have Najah Aziz, owner of Like the River hair salon in Atlanta. Her salon has revenues of over $1,000,000 a year. There are countless, hundreds of thousands, if not millions of black entrepreneurs in this country that are very successful in their businesses, but most don’t who they are. They’re not on TV, not in the limelight, Black Enterprise doesn’t cover them, but they make a decent living for themselves and their families. We have more options and opportunities to support black owned businesses and build a stronger economic base for ourselves than at any other time in history. There are more multi millionaires in the black community today in 2017 than at anytime in history. And I’m not talking about professional athletes, entertainers, and a handful of business tycoons, I’m talking about lots of ordinary every day black men and women doing it. Not talking about it, but being about it.

    The ultimate solution to these issues is to recycle the dollars in our community. We can talk about all the other issues but unless we’re circulating the dollars, ain’t nothing changing.

  3. Orlando Boyden Coombs says:

    These 10 things are just a repeat of the same ole pathologies that do not represent the masses of black people in America. We’re not all living out a script from menace to society, we’re not. We’ve been brow beat over the head and conditioned to believe that blacks are in this horrible and perilous condition. But is that really the case? There are 46 plus million people of African descent in this country. You think the vast majority of them are locked up, jobless, drug addicted, committing crimes, and getting killed. No.

  4. Rene says:

    In every group you’re going to have opportunists who will exploit their own people for $$$$. We see our opportunists all the time in entertainment yet cheer them on whether it’s musicians, athletes, actors, etc. They bring nothing substantial to the community but take our money and then embarrass us as a whole by their appearance, demeanor, and homosexual lifestyles.

  5. Papacool says:

    All this article does is motivate me to do better. Every type of person described should not be limited to our race, but rather is a reflection of all of society as a whole. We can not stop living just because these people exist, but we should learn how to band together to eradicate the symptoms of the diseases that expose themselves within our communities. If the majority of these people do not have the ability to love themselves, how can they be expected to love others? The sadness in all of this is that we find ourselves constantly accepting misbehavior on all levels of the game of life. When people have had the freedom and liberty of doing things ass backwards for so long, they have the tendency to think that the things they do are normal. We see it, but do not speak up due to being afraid of getting involved. When it becomes important to save a person’s soul rather than watch them go over the wayside, nothing we can do or say will matter. To put others ahead of self is not the way we are designed to operate. We have been brainwashed into the by any means necessary to achieve success is the American way. Thank God everyone has not bought into the hype. In order to make things better, we all need to take the first step. People need to have an incentive to do better and until it registers, there is nothing anyone can do for those that do not want to get on that Soul Train. We seem to love to criticize and point fingers rather than realize that except for the Grace of God you or I could have been in the same or worse position. So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, maybe we need to reset our moral compasses to begin doing the deed and not just thinking about it. Hopefully if only one person gets fired up that would be better than none. Peace out, Papacool.

    Re: Northern_Magnolia says:

    I would really like to know the name or at least the team this athlete plays for. The reason is that probably 97% of the black athletes tend to become nothing but complete embarrassments for Black Americans. I will be a total super fan of any intelligent, conscious minded black athlete or entertainer who understands the need for black economic development. I’m soo sick and tired of these ignorant, illiterate, numb skulled 21st century minstrels Negros who piss all their money down a toilet and send the wrong messages to black youth.

    Excellent Article. How do I get involved more in my community?

  8. Northern_Magnolia says:

    Just before the weekend, I had time to sit down with a professional basketball player who is putting his resources — time, treasure, and talent — back into his community. I covered him with respect for that, because what he is doing is highly respectable. I will root for his team, and be at his games whenever possible, from here on out. I say that to say that when we withdraw our adulation and approval from those who care nothing about us, and give our respect and support to those who do care, we will be able to foster more of what we need.

  9. toomanygrandkids says:

    Very good article and so well written. I’ve known this information since I was a young teenager. There’s ALWAYS been black folks who didn’t deserve respect, but other/many blacks gave them respect anyway. Actually, black children are forced to call drug dealers mister, even though dealers are destroying black communities. Even unfit females w/ children are called Miss or Mrs, which would include drug addicts/alcoholics. Giving these black folks repect doesn’t change their behavior or ways of thinking or living. It only allows them to continue disrespecting themselves and others. I refer to them as backstabbers and energizer bunnies.

    For decades, the ten types of blacks you’ve mentioned are the REAL reason why black communities are in such a mess. A HOT MESS!

  10. Realman2 says:

    I have encountered every type of black person listed in this article too many times. Our communities have an excess supply of these people.
