(ThyBlackMan.com) Black people sure are powerful when it comes to things that really matter to them: food, clothes and entertainment. This could be the reason that so much change has occurred in matters of clothing ads and TV viewing.

Aren’t sure what I am talking about?

In the latest adventure of Black Power in America, critics caused an uproar over a recent GapKids ad that black girl was standing with a white girl resting her arm on her head. The photo stirred up enough emotions of inferiority within the black community, that the advertisers pulled it from the Internet.

Our Black Power goes far into media, look at all of the characters we have placed with the proper skin color and features for our viewing pleasure.

One thing our power is, or hasn’t been, capable of, is dealing with and protesting real life black issues.

What issues, you ask?2016-blackissues

Well, how can the black community deal with poverty issues when their money goes outside of their community or used for entertainment?

How can the black community deal with the self-hatred that’s been created within our community with gangs and drug dealer territory wars?

Where is the logic in having the country know the statistics about our community, see how we treat each other every day, hear the derogatory terms we call each other as terms of endearment…and scream Black Lives Matter at the same time?

Not only is it blatantly racist to say only black lives matter when it comes to police brutality, but it’s also ignorant.

For instance, what kind of ill-logic was used when Black Lives Matter protested a black man’s art exhibit called, Kin Killin Kin, a collection of charcoal drawings that the artist James Pates says, ‘…portrays young Black men wearing the KKK hoods and displaying signs that are synonymous with gang activity.’.

The #BLM organization stated that the drawings comparison of black men as KKK members was dishonest.  “To equate the KKK to a group of people who have been enslaved, segregated, and degraded into second-class citizenship is callous and outright offensive.’, said a spokesman for the #BLM Memphis chapter.

In all honesty, their statement was a mirror in which Pate’s drawings was conveying. The Black Lives Matter movement has embarrassed their race with their blatant disregard for black lives in America. If they really wanted to ignore other’s lives in America, the lead they could do is put a spotlight on black lives in a constructive way. Protesting a black man’s art exhibit who was displaying a collective of drawings that was meant to inspire constructive conversation that would lead to positive change. Of course the display was intended to provoke thought and conversation. How did thinking while looking at a collection of drawings create a protestant spirit among #BLM supporter?

The art display protest was a mirror to what is going on in the black community. The community hates to see their own truth and so they protest.

Those drawings depict exactly what is going on in the black community.

Why else do we as a community glorify such hatred towards each other in, what else…black art: movies, music, the videos, and reality TV?

    It amazes me how many of you are still brainwashed to call yourselves BLACK. Black is the color of your car tires, not your skin. The white oppressive slave trader called you black and himself white to set up a contrast and to attach negative images and denotations to you based on a lie about color. Look up BLACK in the dictionary.

    Research even shows that blacks are perceived by other groups as very different from African Americans. But we still keep calling ourselves what someone else defined us as, what we are not and what has a negative dictionary denotation in society. WAKE UP. LOOK AT THE REAL COLOR OF YOUR SKIN. YOU ARE NOT BLACK. You are an African American. The lie of calling us black and defining us by color (the wrong color) has been in place so long that our people accept it as truth – but it’s not. Know your colors.

    Native Americans do not allow others to call them red men. Asians do not accept being called yellow men. Hispanics do not answer to “what’s up brown man”. And Caucasians are not white, notebook paper is white. Wake up and see the plan where white racist supremacists plotted to redefine our people from Africa. STOP CALLING YOURSELF SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE NOT!
    AFRICAN AMERICANS ARE NOT BLACK.

    Black is the color of your car tires, not your skin author. Being called “black” is a lie and it should be offensive. Haitians, Jamaicans and even Africans do not accept being called “black”, Why do you think that is? They are identified by tribes, klans, geographic areas and their respective countries. By using the very term black to describe us, we are doing the following:

    1. Using a term white oppressors and slave masters gave us.

    2. Letting someone else define us other than our own people.

    3. Calling ourselves something we are not.

    4. Buying into thee lie and the negative denotation. Check the dictionary.

    5. Being set apart in a way that no other ethnic group allows. Native Americans are not called Red Man. Asians are not called Yellow Man. Hispanics are not called Brown Man. They do not and will not accept being defined by color and by some other race or ethnic group at that.

    6. Ignoring our actual color (brown) which means brainwashing has worked. Any time someone can get an entire race, ethnic group or culture to ignore what they are and call themselves what they factually are not, THEY HAVE BEEN INDOCTRINATED, ASSIMILATED AND BRAINWASHED.

    7. Playing right into the oppressor’s profiles and stereotypes. Did you know studies show there is a different perception of black people than there is of African Americans? Words create perceptions and perceptions create actions towards us.

    WAKE UP. You know your colors. And even though others around the world equated our ancestors with the color of the soil in Africa or the meaning of negro/negroid, that does not change the fact that WE ARE BROWN – NOT BLACK.

    If you look in the dictionary or send an email to brainstormonline@yahoo.com, I will send you the research. Facts are facts and YOU ARE BROWN, NOT BLACK. When you receive the revelation of wy they keep calling African Americans “black” and Caucasian people “white”, you may just wake up!

    STOP LETTING OTHER GROUPS DEFINE YOU WITH AN OBVIOUS LIE that we have heard and accepted so much that we believe it’s true and forget our colors. The de-programming has to take root or African Americans will forever be defined, limited and oppressed by those who get us to accept a lie.

    I have been saying the same thing for so long! I thought I was the only one who felt this way.
    I am so damned tired if the excuses..”the poverty, the school to prison pipeline, the white man, an now the 1994 Crime Bill!”. These self deluding, excuse making BLM kids need to do as my mother used to say
    “sit down, sit down and shut up!” You were not around in the 80s and 90s to witness the wave of crime that hit the black community. This sunami caused black people to demand that the government do something to address the crime that was rampant. Sweet, innocent angels were not dragged up off the streets and taken to jail. The greatest majority made life in the community hell for older people who could not take their social security checks to the bank, kids who couldn’t walk,to school,
    hard working people could not leave their homes for fear of
    coming home to an empty house! We Black people need to
    OWN OUR SHIT!!! Take responsibility for our lives and our
    choices and or God’s sake….stop the blaming, stop,the excuses!
