Wake Up Black Folks!

(ThyBlackMan.com) I was searching keywords that are searched on the web concerning African Americans/Black People, and I found out that some disturbing terms were looked up on the search engines. Now, I was looking for things such as Hip Hop or sports type of keywords, and guess what I found. The top keywords on the list when it comes to black folks were…

  • Why are Black People So Rude
  • Black People are Ugly
  • Why do Black People Look Like Monkeys
  • Black People and Watermelon
Now this does not really surprise me, but it is a bit disturbing knowing that this is what falls at the top of the list of things being typed into search engines about us. This means that there a plenty of people that think that we are rude, ugly, look like monkeys, and were made to eat watermelon. Now I want to say a few things to people who think these things. Some black people that you meet might be rude because of the way the world treats us like $h!t at times.
 
We might have a little anger in us being that most of our jobs work the hell out of us for minimum wage, while boss-man is sitting in the officewake-up screwing his secretary and popping pills. As far as the ugly thing… I say let’s line up a hundred blacks and a hundred of any other race and have a honest beauty contest. Why do we look like monkeys, I rather look like a monkey than a caveman. Last but not least, I don’t really like watermelon, but Ill take the fried chicken just like most of the world be it black or white.
 
Being that there are plenty of people that feel this way, and we work for many of them. We shop at their stores, by our cars from their dealerships, and overall support their businesses after the way that they feel about us. I’m not talking about just white people either, I’m talking about any non African Americans, or black descendants of Africa. Why is it so hard for us to put our money together to start companies, or just shop with each other.
 
I am here to tell you this, in 2014, I am going to seriously find black businesses to handle most of my needs. The only thing that bothers me is that its hard to find a black owned gas station, bank, or any Major company that we own. With that being said, we have plenty of work to do. I am tired of giving my little money to people who would not invite me to their houses unless it meant that I would have to clean or wash some shit. Don’t you get tired of this stuff, and if you are, what are you going to do?

    FYI, Kataurus: BLACK PPL MAKE THESE STATEMENTS/COMMENTS ALSO. It’s not only non-blacks typing these things in the search engine. Even I know that some blacks are rude. They have no self-respect, let alone respect for anybody else. Black isn’t always beautiful. Are you saying that you’ve never seen an ugly black person. If that’s the case then you don’t live on planet Earth. I see ugly ppl of all races everyday. Did you know that black parents call their own children ugly? That should make you mad. And another thing: Blacks treat other blacks even shittier on a daily basis. Does that make you angry?

    I recommend these books: Powernomics from Dr. Claud Anderson and Our Black Year. They are available on amazon.com.
