Contradictions we should stop ignoring

Contradictions we should stop ignoring

RBG

People posting slogans on social media, advocating for their race and community, never once going out to befriend and bond with the people living in the communities they speak of. People never supporting local small businesses and local entrepreneurs, and never getting their hands dirty to physically help clean their community.

People who love to talk about the negative stereotypes being portrayed of them, while they continue to LOVE to be entertained by vulgar music, violent images on social media, movies and tv shows promoting dysfunctional lifestyles, lustful sex driven men and women, violent money hungry capitalists, and so on.

People, claiming they have respect for the ancestors, but behaving lazily, never taking time to actually read and study the knowledge provided and handed down by the ancestors – Example: Never having read important books written by the ancestors.

(Example)

“Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?” by Martin Luther King Jr.

“Southern Horrors and Other Writings: The Anti-Lynching Campaign of Ida B. Wells, 1892-1900” by Ida B. Wells

“The Philosophy and Opinions of Marcus Garvey: Africa for the Africans”

“Stolen Legacy: Greek Philosophy is Stolen Egyptian Philosophy” by George G. M. James

I could go on and on, but let’s be more mindful of the contradictions we display.
