There are many people in the USA in love. Some of these people may be in love with money. Some people are in love with other people. All people have a love for something or someone. African American people have to start loving the one person who they subconsciously seem to hate. African American people need to start loving the person in the mirror.
When you are dealing with the subconscious mind you have to understand it runs on what is put into it. The majority of African Americans have had their subconscious programmed by people who do not care for them. The key to manipulating people is to make their misery and misfortune seem like either a badge of honor or a good thing. This has been done to African Americans for the past 600 years. It’s time for African Americans to break this subconscious self-hate program. It’s time for African Americans to express agape love toward the person in the mirror.
Many African Americans will say they love themselves. Yet, their actions are detrimental to their health and well being. This is where the subconscious programming is in effect. African Americans can talk love from their mouth, but their actions say otherwise. African Americans do not even realize they are acting in ways that are leading them into extinction. Why? The African American subconscious mind is controlled by an enemy hand. How can a person claim to love themselves when the actions they take are prolonged suicidal acts? Think of the hideous dietary practices of many African Americans. Aren’t many African Americans committing suicide via the fork? If one loved themselves would they eat themselves to death?
African American lack of love for themselves creates children who inherit the self hate programming from parents. How can a person who subconsciously hates themself love another? This is impossible even if the other person sprang from their own loins. Think. African Americans constantly complain about the police or other law enforcement killing or incarcerating African American youth. Yet, African American parents watch their children go into a hostile world wearing the garb that marks them as menaces. You see this happen every day when African Americans send their children to school. Fashion should not dictate if a person is a criminal. In the USA this is far from the truth. Why then do African Americans send their children into the world dressed like the stereotypical thug or harlot? If this is love, then whose concept of love is it? Who benefits from the previous loving actions by African Americans?
The 2023 African American concept of music and entertainment is a classic example of this lack of self-love. I heard someone state that hip hop was to blame for a pro athlete’s actions. Rap music has more blood on its hands than one athlete. A genre of music that for the past 35 years has glorified buffoonery. Buffoonery is too kind. Rap music has negatively shaped the African American existence to the point of no return. Everyone isn’t selling kilos of cocaine. Every stripper isn’t making tens of thousands a night. How many murders has the average African American committed? The main murder African Americans have committed is the person in the mirror. The murder of the person in the mirror is why music like rap is still thriving in the African American community.
It is time for African Americans to make a choice. African Americans have to love themselves if they want to end the violence and poverty in their community. African Americans have to take some quiet time and truly look at what they are thinking and their actions towards themselves. Do not be afraid to ask, “Is this really a show of love for myself,” before you take action. If every African American loved themselves in agape fashion, the murder rate would drop. If you love something you cherish and protect it. African American lives will fall into this category when they learn to truly love themselves.
