The fourth installment of the Self Hatred section focuses on issue of intra racism and how it effects the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Do hairstyles contribute to stereotypes about Black people even among Black people?
2. Is there any validity to the theory that slavery continues to contribute to our mentality today?
3. Are you color blind, color struck, or color stuck and why?
When we originally started the Black Advancement Inc. we were often questioned why we decided to focus specifically on Black people and Black issues. Granted, there are several reasons and explanation for this, however one of the main pillars of our reasoning was the issue of self hatred within the Black Community. This issue goes deep into the hearts of Black folks and can impact us in a variety of ways including but not excluded to hairstyle, fashion, and even romantic relationship. Our progress and struggle both hinge on our ability to get out of our own way. With that said the question remains, do are intra-racial issues contribute to the destruction of the Black Community?
