When a person takes action it is to get some form of result. When a group of people decide to take action, it is usually because they want a result. Actions should lead to results. In a sane person the results are usually ones that benefit that person. With this previous statement in mind, are there any beneficial results from some of the actions African Americans are taking?
In 2023 the actions taken by African Americans do not seem to be getting results that are beneficial to growth on any level. I am not talking about increasing the number of African American people in the USA. I am talking about increasing the quality of African American people. African Americans seem to be losing intelligence in a time where access to information is at ones finger tips. How can this be? Many African Americans, of all ages, live on their cell phones and use computers daily. Yet, with all this access to information African Americans actions and behaviors seem to be detrimental to their growth on all levels. What are the ultimate goals for 2023 African American actions? What is the end result?
What are the end results of the act of having African American females don wigs or weave as soon as they enroll in K-5? What are the ultimate goals of having African American females idolize female entertainers who rap about getting STD’s. How does this action enhance the pride, esteem and consciousness of African American females? What are the end results from African American female entertainers promoting sex with any gender that comes along? What are the end results to be gained by African American females from glorifying obesity, fake lashes, body augmentation and tattoos? Is this going to lead to respect for African American females from other races or even other African Americans with common sense?
What is the end result from the African American male wearing his hair in a bun, donning hoochie daddy shorts, and painting his nails pink? What are the results of having African American male athletes wear what appear to be sports bras in public? What are the end results of having African American males wear their pants so tight around their calves until they can’t wear socks? African American males always complain about not being respected by other races. Are any of these previous actions going to make the world sit up and say, “Those African American males exude machismo?” Is it any wonder that African American males are looked down upon by people of all races, including in many cases, African American females?
The end result is why thinking people take action. In the case of African Americans, they seem to have not thought about any result. A long term result is gained by taking actions that may take years to develop, but in the end bring about a desired goal. When you look at the actions the masses of African Americans are taking, or allowing themselves to be led into, they are heading to one destination. Subservience, disrespect and possible annihilation.
Many African Americans want to blame other races for their status. Outside influences have played a great role in the ignorance of African Americans. In 2023 there is really no excuse for African Americans to be going backwards or sliding into stupidity at such an alarming rate. People can only do to you what you allow them to do. African Americans you have some issues with other races, but in the end you have a decision to make. African American people take control of your minds and stop allowing yourself to be made into an image that ensures misery and death. Take back your power African Americans, unless the results you see in the USA are the end results you want.
