The third installment of the Self Hatred section focuses on the concept of acting black and how it effects the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. What constitutes acting Black and are these associations fair?
2. Do you subscribe to the notion that there are Black people and there are n_ _ _ _ _ _ and if so, why?
3. Have we been brainwashed to think, act, and react, in a certain way to things and if so, why?
We are not a monolithic people. Some of us voted for Mitt Romney, some of us don’t like chicken, some of us use proper english at all times, and yes our ethnicity is still that of a person of African decent. However, we would be remiss if we honestly didn’t look at ourselves for what we have become. We have painted ourselves into a corner labeled blackness where a person can only be considered Black if they do certain things and do things a certain way. Not to mention, the baggage of outside perspectives on and about us. Does the idea of acting Black contribute to the destruction of the Black Community?
