White Folks, You Got a Problem

Bey

White people,

We know that you’ve been angry and upset, especially for the past couple of weeks. We know you’re pissed off at Cam Newton for being a black quarterback for the Carolina Panthers. We know you’re miffed at Beyonce for that Half Time performance, because she had the audacity for rally for Black Lives Matter, another topic you have serious trouble with. There are other examples where you people (Yes, I said ‘you people’.) have shown your racist, white supremacist asses with glee and no apology. That is, until someone catches you.

Basically, you’re no longer center stage in everything, and that makes you mad. You make racist remarks to express your seething anger at us for taking some of the spots you think are only reserved for white people. You wish death upon us for making blackness a subject. We see it as racism at its most obvious.

Black people, and people of color (POC) in general, are not stupid. We recognize racism when we see and hear it. So, your assertion that you’re not racist or how something is not about race when it is won’t fly with many of us. We are well educated on what you people have done and are doing. And I say ‘you people’ instead of ‘some of you people’, because that is how you refer to us whenever we have done something stupid, terrible or not up to your ‘standards’. So, get a taste of what’s it’s like not to be you and savor it.

Yes, call it racist. Cry how this is making white people feel guilty as if that’s worse than death itself. Accuse us of using the very invention that your people have created and benefited from for hundreds of years. I honestly don’t care. Why? Because asking white people to hold themselves accountable for their racism and privileges whenever any incident of racism against POC occurs is not racist.

We are not oppressing white people and reaping the rewards from the oppression, nor are we making them ashamed to be white, contrary to popular right wing opinion. We only ask for fairness, equality and respect. I know that seems hard for you to grasp. Admit it. You have major problems with that. You have major problems with us, and it is tearing you apart inside. This begs to ask the question. If all lives matter, as many of you say, why do you have such a big problem with black ones?

Black folks are not perfect. We’re every bit as human you are. And no. Your skin, European features and overall history and culture don’t make you superior just as our skin color, African features and culture doesn’t make us less-than-human. Those are lies that you have adopted and cherished. It’s the lie that you hold dear. Sure, some of you are unaware. Yes, some of you are proud of living that lie. But the bottom line is that it’s YOUR PROBLEM!

It’s a problem so twisted that you hate us more than you love yourselves. You focus more on what’s supposedly ‘wrong’ with us way more than you figure out what’s so great about yourselves other than your overall whiteness. The proof is in white supremacist groups, conservative media and their pundits and on the internet.

Still, you can’t stand it when we call you out on your racist bullshit. And you have a fit when we love our blackness. Even you, who claim to not be racist, have a problem with us. But instead of facing it, you make excuses. You create lame ass reasons why you hate us. You create and cite statistics all day trying not to face your dark truth. You continue to hate and you’re fine with that?

If you want us to shut up and ‘stop bitching’, own up to your bullshit. Face that fact that you or your people have a race problem and make steps to fix it. For those of you who generally don’t give a fuck, go ahead and sink in the tar pit of white supremacy and racism. Humanity doesn’t need you.

  1. I really don’t pay much attention to Beyonce, but I gotta big up this display. Let’s hope this continues and is not just some shallow “I’m Black” marketing tool.

    Very good article Brotha. Very good indeed.

  2. The entitlement of their whining. What makes them think she made the video for them. Or is it the fact that it ISN’T for them part of the problem. The whole world is waking up to their special brand of evil bovine feces and it’s long overdue. As usual, we, the lowest on the socio-economic totem pole, will lead the charge against this collective menace of globalized white supremacy. But here’s the thing about these people…have you ever noticed that they never get more angry at you than when you express a love of Blackness coupled with a desire to separate and leave them completely alone? Try it and you will witness a complete psychological melt down. Let them be angry. They’ve been angry for over 400 years. Maybe it’s time we give them something to be angry about. After centuries of pussy footing, protesting and begging from a people steeped in hatred, can we accuse them of madness, when we ourselves exhibit terminal repetitive behavior in our dealings with them? I think they see that we are no longer the meek and docile “Negroids” that they are so contemptibly familiar with. I think they are scared to their souls of us truly becoming cohesive. Because if THEY were US, and were treated the way they have treated us, they would come at us full tilt with teeth bared. I say this, and I say this most succinctly, eff them. It’s not about them anymore. It’s about us. And if they want to throw a nuclear worthy tantrum while we snatch back our dignity and take the whole Earth with them…..oh well. Oh effing well. But something must be done.

  3. These white folks are out of their rabbit azz minds, Always trying to police black people. All these fool can kick rocks in open toe shoes. First they all piled up on Cam Newton now we can all have a glass of white tears. Let these ashy Beckys stay mad.

  4. Notice that as long as Beyonce stayed racially ambiguous they(white folks) had no problem. But as long as she was keeping it black they all started crying foul. I wonder will Beyonce continue to make statements on social injustices? Because if she does her career will tank. White America does not like it’s Negroes to be pro black. That’s why Fox News got that “cooon” Stacy Dash.

    1. Hey it’s better to go out on your feet than on your knees begging. I hope Beyoncé DOES keep the fire of discontent burning and I noticed that too as long as her hair stayed long and blonde and her skin stayed light they love her but when she gets a little too ‘real’ for them she is ghetto, ratchet, etc. typical code words for those bitches.

  5. We literally do get punished for expressing any semblance of blackness then we have to do the mental gymnastics to figure out what to show and what not to show to keep them (white people) from losing their damn minds.

  6. These people as a whole do not understand what justice really intells, for the past 6000+yrs they have been able to practice a foreign knowledge ( the art of deceitful practices aka lying and murder) on the aboriginal people. Us so called American negroes have been reared by white americans for the past 400+years. They actually believe they have (and maybe they do according to their god which rules this system which is contrary to our sanity and lives) the right to dictate our thought process. This belief is practiced by the most ignorant of them as well as their leaders, lawmakers. Our God is just and justice we will receive as soon as we lose our fear of these people who have shown themselves to be our 400+ year old open enemy and opposer.

  7. ” Basically, you’re no longer the center of everything and that makes you mad.”

    ^Yes, saar ! * reminding me of my uncle when he is in compliance of something*

    If that would have been Miley Cyrus with..as my late grandmother would say.. an ounce of a– and an army of White women wearing and dancing to the same tune as those women and men did during the half time show, it would have been ” beautiful”,” awesome” or “inspiring”,but it wasn’t so it’s everything but a child of god to them.

    I thought that the half time show was great..but you know I’m not talking about COLDplay. Bruno and Beyonce stole the show. It reminded me of the days when my brother was attending Morehouse college where the fraternities/sororities from Spelman College would have their stepsows and boy..oh boy were they spectacular! Even though it wasn’t a stepshow, I still loved the show and it’s theme

    The men and women with with Beyonce and Bruno we’re beyond awesome. Honestly, I thought that Beyonce lost it when she went mainstream but she just showed otherwise during. It all reminded me of the days of Black power of the 60s-70’s very nostalgic and wholesome. Rudy Guilliani was talking about how the Half-time show is anti-police. If that is the case, the same can be said about Donald Trump and his goons hurting, throwing out and harassing people at his rallies. Maybe listening to Hank Williams Jr( another racist) theme song talking wanting more football may have made Donald’s fans do it.. He should be talking about that before talking about Beyonce.

    Like some people have said, White society gets intimidated when we express our love for each other. I mean..it’s fine when they have no problem acccepting stereotypes and problems of our communities but when comes to expressing the beauty and love for Black people..just like it was performed during the SuperBowl, it makes them sick because it makes them feel good as long as the think we’re destroying each other. Is there is one thing I’ve learn about Black people is that we’re an ” unpredicatable” race of people and I mean that in a good way. People think they know us but they really don’t. We can cuss each other out and go through many trials and tribulations but at the end we end up being one big happy family. That is what make White society very sick…that we think for ourselves.

    If they boycott her shows..fine. Just like one woman said on a FB page Beyonce was never theirs to begin with and I’ll gladly take those tickets. I also hope that this will be a lesson for Beyonce. White society love you in their own image but will reject you when they can’t mold you into it.

  8. Also like Brotha stated I think it also angered them because they were excluded and they just don’t like seeing anything that celebrates blackness. It was just too black for the YT folks.

  9. They just don’t want us to express or celebrate ourselves. They want us to be silent and not speak out when we are dissatisfied. We get attacked for everything. They hate us. Adults attacking a young child is so disgusting. These beast are nothing but trash.

  10. Look, I’m not denying one bit that there’re racist white assholes out there, nor do I deny that there is a problem with police brutality towards blacks. I believe those racist cops should be shot dead like the animals they are. I feel bad for the environment that black people have to grow up in, and I wish it wasn’t this way.
    That all being said, my main criticism of BLM stems from the actions of the supporters and not the movement as a whole.
    Now, first of all, can I just say that celebrating a race is dumb, for ALL parties doing so? Who “celebrates” being white? That’s like clebrating having 2 feet and 2 hands, what’s the point of it? It’s a skin color. I would look a white person celebrating being white the same way I’d look at someone celebrate having 2 feet, it’s dumb.
    Now I know why they’re doing it, you can celebrate being black all you want. That’s fine, I have no issues. But I think the contraversy has more to do with the unpopularity of the BLM movement overall.
    Let me remind you that this is the same group of people that celebrated the death of police officers and continued to taunt police on twitter. Let me remind you this is the same group of people that routinely endorse gang violence among young black children.You’ve seen the photos and videos of these kids. Let me remind you this is the same group that refuses, and in some cases label you a racist, for even bringing up the fact that blacks kill other blacks at an insane rate. Where was all the outrage from BLM about the death of 9 year old Tyshawn Lee? If you had to Google that, you just proved my point.
    Where’s the outrage about black people getting murdered EVERY SINGLE DAY in Detroit, Chicago, and Memphis? Where’s BLM? Oh wait, looks like they’re too busy calling Climate Change and Ellen Degeneres Racist.
    My point here is that did you not think that people would have a bit of a problem with a celebrity endorsing this same group of people? You seem to think that only racist, white privileged, fuckhead whities hate BLM. You massively generalize all white people as racist in thus article based on a picture on Facebook. Let me ask you something: What about all the black people who oppose BLM because they are opposed to believing that it’s ALL white people’s fault for the turmoil of the black community? The blacks who believe that BLM stood up for them, but then left when they realized that BLM has accomplished nothing to aid in helping blacks out of crippling poverty, and stopping single black mothers from having so many kids that she couldn’t possibly take care of all of them. Seriously, name me 3 things that BLM have done to solve any of these problems of Poverty, Unemployment, Infant-and-Child mortality rate of blacks, and teenage pregnancy? I haven’t seen any.

    So before you go calling white people privileged shitstains who love nothing more than watching black people suffer, I ask that you re-evaluate whether or not what you’re doing or saying is actually progressing to solve these serious issues. I ask that you not be so ignorant in claiming that all white people HATE the fact that black people can have a voice. I ask that you not shit on the same country that voted in a black president by a majority white electorate.

    1. First of all, Black Lives Matter was created, because in this society black lives DON’T matter. When have they ever? And why is it such a problem for people to say it? People don’t seem to have an issue with Blue Lives Matter. So, why is saying Black Lives Matter such a problem, especially since this country made it its mission to make sure that they don’t matter ever since they were kidnapped from their homelands?

      Second, when have BLM ever celebrated the deaths of cops or taunted police on twitter? When have they ever endorsed gang violence among black children? And why must it be their responsibility to bring up and tackle crime in black communities (not ‘black-on-black crime’) when black communities have addressed and took on the problem for years upon years? I’m curious as to where you got your information from.

      Third, if I did generalize white people, it’s not without good reason. White people by and large not only don’t care about us, they hate us, especially if we stand up to their racism. And one of the reasons stem from them generalizing us throughout history in one negative stereotype after another. So, consider this a taste of their own medicine.

      Fourth, why not go to BLM’s website and research yourself what their objectives are instead of base them off of misinformation used to discredit it:

      http://blacklivesmatter.com/about/

      Also, one group can only do so much. The problems you mentioned have been mentioned for many years, and black people have done all they can to not only acknowledge them, but also fix them. What have YOU done instead of complaining?

      Fifth and finally, your entire response is exactly why I blog and why I wrote this post. You telling me what to do with my outrage, is the cornerstone of what’s wrong with white people when it comes to racism. And spare me with telling me not to, as you said, ‘shit on a the same country that voted a black president’. That doesn’t mean that racism died when he was elected. And that certainly doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t say anything about the racism that still goes on.

      And thanks for providing a great example of how NOT to engage in a conversation about racism.

      1. I’ll give credit where credit’s due, you didn’t delete my comment. Nice.
        Thanks for telling me to educate myself, I already did before you sent me the link. Allow me to point something out to you on their website:
        “We are committed to embodying justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.”
        Correct me if I’m wrong but all you did was insult me for merely having the gull to criticize you. Oh, unless it means peace against white people, well then fuck them right? Bunch of racist fucks who just love nothing more than watching black people fucking rot huh?
        I also find it very odd that you are so passionately against racism, but yet you find no problems grouping me in with the people who hate BLM solely based on my skin color and the fact that I only disagreed with you because I think that BLM isn’t taking proper steps to help solve these crippling problems in the black community. About 40% of the 82.7% of black people in Detroit are living either at or below the poverty level. Where’s BLM? Black people in gangs are killing each other EVERYDAY over drugs, money, and fucking each other girls. Where’s BLM? What about the high obesity rates among black people? It’s 72.7% of black adults! I thought Black Lives Mattered? Where are they?
        Here are some sources from the person you think is “uneducated”:
        http://minorityhealth.hhs.gov/omh/browse.aspx?lvl=4&lvlid=23
        http://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/bvvc.pdf
        https://www.census.gov/quickfacts/table/PST045215/2622000
        http://kff.org/other/state-indicator/adult-overweightobesity-rate-by-re/?currentTimeframe=0&sortModel=%7B%22colId%22:%22Location%22,%22sort%22:%22asc%22%7D
        I searched through the entire BLM website. I saw NOT ONE of these stats mentioned nor did I see them in any way trying to address it. What did I find? Information about their rallies. Yeah, because holding up signs has done a lot to solve the rampant gang violence! Rioting in the streets and destroying private property sure did a whole lot to solve the poverty crisis! Even if that was caused by white people, what effect has BLM had on these issues?
        Oh, you want to know what I’m doing about it?! I’m donating money to homeless shelters to help out all those black men and women who couldn’t afford the payments on their house anymore. I gave them some money so they don’t starve or get shot. Unlike what you seem to believe, I support BLM in their pursuit to give black people the right to stand up and speak.
        Unlike what you seem to believe, I love black people. My first boyfriend I ever had was black. He loved me, I loved him. He was there for me, he would do anything just to see me smile. He lived in a shitty house just across the street from me and he lived with a mother that abused and yelled at him, not to mention who also hated me for even being around him. I would do anything for all the good black men who are in his position right now, and I feel that BLM has failed thus far to do so. I will not oppose BLM, but I will not support it unless it makes some adjustments to lift those men out of the ghetto, and not just blame the evil white men. There’re certain white men who are a problem, but I want to see BLM take steps to stop all the violence, condemn all the people in their group who are celebrating the death of other human beings, and take major steps into presenting the image that black people aren’t racist, violent savages, because they’re not.
        Until I see them taking some steps, such as setting up homeless shelters and providing these black men with a job and transportation, clean water, and emotional help and support to help them fight drug addiction. This is what I believe black people deserve, unlike what you seem to think.

        Oh, and P.S,
        Congrats on missing the point of me bringing up the fact that Obama is president. “That doesn’t mean racism died..” No shit! I never said that! I only said that because why would an electorate of a majority of white folks, who according to you VIOLENTLY HATE ALL BLACK PEOPLE, vote in a black president? Whoops, how did that happen?!
        Also, nice job trying to claim that I’m telling you how to use your outrage. I wasn’t, thank you very much. I was only merely suggesting that your outrage was a bit misdirected. Just a bit.
        Oh and before you complain about the fact that my comment was nothing but complaining, here’s my response to that:
        “Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t cast stones.”

      2. Let me leave on one last note:
        Brothawolf,
        I personally wish you no ill will as a person. I honestly believe your heart is in the right place. I honestly believe that you care very deeply about your people, and that you are only doing what you think is right. I respect that to no end.
        All I’m saying here is that we’re on the same page believe it or not, but the only place where we disagree is on what’s being done about it. I see obesity, poverty, and gang violence as the main and biggest problems with the black community, but it’s clear you believe otherwise.
        I don’t hate you for it, you go where ever your path leads you.
        I only ask that you acknowledge where I’m coming from in this instance. I don’t find it very fitting that someone accuses me of hating blacks because I’m white. It’s the only thing I had a problem with.
        I simply feel that BLM doesn’t represent the solutions I want for the black community. I wish I could support a group that believes that we all have value, because as human beings, we are all valuable, we are the world.
        But sadly, I don’t feel right supporting this group. I don’t ask that you agree, I only ask you understand.
        As I’ve said, I bear no ill will, you do you. I will not stand in your way.

        Thank you.

    1. White supremacist tropes huh?

      Oh, you mean me bringing up the fact that maybe, just fucking maybe, the black community has far more problems than just the evil white people hate us and want us all dead! Obesity is huge among black adults, was that white people’s fault? Black people are killing each other over gang turf in major cities everyday. Did white people do that? Children are getting neglected and beaten by their own mothers everyday. You know all those videos on World Star Hip Hop.com, those are no joke.

      Did you even read ANY of the sources I gave? That’s a rhetorical question, of course you didn’t. Because who gives a shot right? It’s just facts! Fuck facts, we’re Black Lives Matter! We’ll just call white people racist pieces of shit and then wonder why we’re not being taken seriously.

      How someone can go so far out of their way to almost outright REFUSE to believe that black people have problems besides white people utterly baffles me to no end. It’s amazing how you call me the racist for SIMPLY pointing out that white people aren’t the root of all evil on planet earth like you seem to believe.

      Oh and before you call me uneducated, might I suggest you read a book first.

      P.S. Don’t bother responding to this comment, I’m not going to read it. I’ll be too busy going out and donating money to groups who actually DO care about black people and all races for that matter.
      Fuck you, and have a nice day.

      1. You know what, Appraxsis? You’re completely full of shit, and here’s why, should you care to read:

        First, you made a decision to leave comments that are offensive. Someone calls you on it, and then, you get pissed. Yes, your comments are laced with white supremacist tropes. And both me, Herneith and anyone else who’s aware saw that and were not pleased.

        Second, you continue on with your attachment towards problems in the black community as if they were created by no one else but black people themselves. You also make it seem as if those problems are confined to black people only as if white people don’t experience crime, poverty and obesity in their communities.

        Third, if Herneith chooses not to read your stats, that’s HER RIGHT TO DO SO. If you don’t like it, tough!

        Fourth, you’re comment only helps prove the racism that white people have by spewing racist replies. This is NOT saying that you’re racist, but so far, you’re doing a bad job of convincing us otherwise. And this latest retort is making you look worse and you only have YOURSELF to blame.

        Firth, you’re so obsessed with black people having problems, you make it seem like you know more about black people than black people. You have a hell of a lot to learn and you won’t get anywhere by being condescending.

        Bottomline, you need to take your head out of your lily white ass and learn why it is people like me and Herneith and myself are angry at white people like you. And frankly, we don’t care if you don’t come back, because you’ve shown your hateful ignorance and white privilege.

        Why not take her advice and educate yourself instead of thinking that you know what it means to be black, that is if you put your whiteness aside.

  11. To Appraxsis-

    Correct me if I’m wrong but all you did was insult me for merely having the gull to criticize you. Oh, unless it means peace against white people, well then fuck them right? Bunch of racist fucks who just love nothing more than watching black people fucking rot huh?

    Okay. How did I insult you exactly? I asked you questions to which you haven’t really answered. How is that insulting?

    I also find it very odd that you are so passionately against racism, but yet you find no problems grouping me in with the people who hate BLM solely based on my skin color and the fact that I only disagreed with you because I think that BLM isn’t taking proper steps to help solve these crippling problems in the black community. About 40% of the 82.7% of black people in Detroit are living either at or below the poverty level. Where’s BLM? Black people in gangs are killing each other EVERYDAY over drugs, money, and fucking each other girls. Where’s BLM? What about the high obesity rates among black people? It’s 72.7% of black adults! I thought Black Lives Mattered? Where are they?

    Who are you to tell black people, BLM specifically, where their priorities should be and how to handle them, when it appears that you’re just criticizing and not actively helping. And your judgments based on your ‘disappointments’ won’t help anything. All you’re doing is bring up statistics and blaming a movement for which you clearly know nothing about.

    I searched through the entire BLM website. I saw NOT ONE of these stats mentioned nor did I see them in any way trying to address it. What did I find? Information about their rallies. Yeah, because holding up signs has done a lot to solve the rampant gang violence! Rioting in the streets and destroying private property sure did a whole lot to solve the poverty crisis! Even if that was caused by white people, what effect has BLM had on these issues?

    Oh, you want to know what I’m doing about it?! I’m donating money to homeless shelters to help out all those black men and women who couldn’t afford the payments on their house anymore. I gave them some money so they don’t starve or get shot. Unlike what you seem to believe, I support BLM in their pursuit to give black people the right to stand up and speak.

    Why should the website have the stats? It’s THEIR website, NOT YOURS. They don’t have to please you or any other white person who’s all about lecturing black people on what’s wrong with them.

    You’re giving money to the homeless. That’s good, but what do you want, a cookie? If you support BLM, then why are you here whining about what they’re not doing according to you?

    Unlike what you seem to believe, I love black people. My first boyfriend I ever had was black. He loved me, I loved him. He was there for me, he would do anything just to see me smile. He lived in a shitty house just across the street from me and he lived with a mother that abused and yelled at him, not to mention who also hated me for even being around him. I would do anything for all the good black men who are in his position right now, and I feel that BLM has failed thus far to do so. I will not oppose BLM, but I will not support it unless it makes some adjustments to lift those men out of the ghetto, and not just blame the evil white men. There’re certain white men who are a problem, but I want to see BLM take steps to stop all the violence, condemn all the people in their group who are celebrating the death of other human beings, and take major steps into presenting the image that black people aren’t racist, violent savages, because they’re not.

    You know what, save the ‘I dated a black man’ babble, because I’ve heard it before. That means NOTHING, especially after reading your comments. And while you’re at it, save the ‘blaming the white man’ babble as well, because all you’re doing is showing your RACIST ATTITUDE. And frankly, I’m sick of it, because I ran into white people like you who are just as, if not more, condescending and clueless towards any and/or all movements by black people for black people.

    I bet the same ramblings you’ve given were the same ramblings white people gave during the Civil Rights Movements. Just a thought, though.

    All I’m saying here is that we’re on the same page believe it or not, but the only place where we disagree is on what’s being done about it. I see obesity, poverty, and gang violence as the main and biggest problems with the black community, but it’s clear you believe otherwise.

    No. We’re not on the same page. I don’t even think we’re reading the same book. All you’ve been acknowledging are our problems. Why not take a step further and see our greatness? More importantly, why not see our humanity instead of all things wrong with us that’s also wrong in every community?

    If you think you’re an ally – if you’re trying to be an ally, you’re off to a horrible start. You waltz in here unleashing a list of criticisms on a movement you seem to be disappoint about. And your only defense are tired-white-isms that only serve to deflect and denounce a movement you appear ignorant about and are apparently unwilling to learn. You see, you’re all about talking instead of listening. And if that’s how you do things, don’t be shocked if you bring this mess into another blog or forum and you get cursed out.

    So yes, your comments were insulting, typical and devoid of any substance as you advertised yourself as a “good white person”. The reality is YOU’RE JUST LIKE MANY WHITE FOLKS OUT THERE. You’re all about finger-pointing and not about mind-opening. Maybe you genuinely care about black people. So why not care enough to learn from them, instead of looking down at them?
