I have not read this thread, but clicked this page. I agree that my grandmother always did and tried her hardest to do a great job at everything. My mother seemed to be and still is very complacent and doesn't mind giving minimal effort or accepting handouts. My generation has the mindset of my grandmother's. I try to coach/motivate my mother to do better, stand up for something, and make changes in her life. I can see some progress, but very slow... sometimes two steps forward and one step back.

I fcking hate the black baby boomers

Those Brothas sucked up all the benefits our grandparents fought for and then pulled the ladder up

They're useless pieces of sh*t who did the absolute minimum in paving the way for us

cherry one of them asked why me hair (I am natural) is not straight like other black women's hair (that is relaxed) and added that she wasn't trying to be racist

she also told me I was racist when I said a white co worker had a ghetto baby shower....she quickly changed it to classist lol

she also let me know she was terrified of saying the wrong thing to me because she does not know if something she may say is racist or not lol

lemme just go ahead and cosign all your statements from just reading pg 1-3


just came to requote Embarrassed

and to say i used to think like MD before i got educated (the irony) and ever since going back to uni my eyes have been opened in a way i never anticipated

i suggest those that think racism is over, isn't as bad and that we're absolutely free, please read and do some research on systematic/institutionalized racism...representation, prison industrial complex....there's so much...i'll even provide books to read

but i cannot accept the bs ppl spit....yes A LOT of fuccas stay making bad decisions but doing so in a system which already designed you to fail and do said things .....
there are so many levels to this sh*t and it took me a long time to truly understand the depths to which this statement is true..i'll never look at white ppl the same


please give me a list of books to read

Yes, I spoke with a black Civil Rights Activist (male) who was a chemist. He was talking about he didn't know where things "went wrong" and I told him...it was yalls kids. They contributed NOTHING to the progression of black people, but are the ones that complain the loudest. They became complacent. 

Think about it: 

If you were born from 1960 - 1970 you were 10, at the oldest, when your parents were fighting for equal rights. 

This means your teenage years came about in the 80s and young adult hood in the 90s. Thanks for nothing, cause yall didn't do sheit. You didn't have to fight in wars. You didn't have to fight as nearly as hard for equal treatment. You really didn't have to do sheit but not phuck up. You, unlike our generation, did not live through a recession. You got the benefit of Bill....we (1980s - 1990s) lived through Bush. 

Everything from the crack epidemic, heavy violence within the black community, general complacency, etc came from this era entirely. Even these ratchet hoes on tv (Love & Hip Hop etc) are mostly NOT in their 20s or even early 30s. The majority are pushing 40 and 50 years old. Even the Million Man March was orchestrated by our GRANDPARENTS generation. Those born in the 60s to 70s did not even bother to keep that up.  

I think the younger generation is more focused on progression and success than our parents by far, the only thing I'm not liking is that I think we are, admittedly, more ignorant about racism and our culture than we should be, but hell, that's because our parents did not feel it was necessary to instill those values.
