Is anyone else severely concerned for our community? I don't know. I was sitting on my couch waiting for this snow to blow over and started browsing through Worldstar. I know WSHH isn't a completely accurate depiction of our community by any means, but it got me thinking. Let me preface that by saying I know and am friends with many black professionals. However, do you think we've reached a point of no return?

The love of material things (likes on Instagram/FB, cars, other meaningless things, etc) and the miseducation of many of our young just seems overwhelming now. That coupled with the increased negative connotations black men and women have of each other. It's just so sad. We're literally turning on each other. Maybe the snow has me in my feelings.

There's definitely cause for concern. Some of us are truly lost and I don't know what the solution is.

Not concerned, just utterly pessimistic.

We just have voids in areas that we don't address, so we end up replacing them with items, material items that hold us over temporarily. Once the newness and excitement of the item fades, on to the next thing.

The whole world is getting to a point of no return.
We could point the finger to the greedy ones hoarding all of the resources, and messing with substances they really don't know how to control.

As far as our community, we need to stop looking outwardly for a white saviour and start 'saving' ourselves. Like that Angelina jolie thread. The problem with a white person doing it, they have managed to convince the world that they are the default and the status quo. What to be. The epitome of being. So when they say (intentionally or not) hey, let's embrace blacks (or colour) then they are still the power..like we wouldn't be embraced if it weren't for them.
But it takes too much strength for that, and most of us are just too conditioned. The layers are many, and the reality may very well be that many will perish. (Not just us blacks, because the entire rest of the world also have this inferiority complex)

Not me and mine, no further conditioning for me, and past conditionings I am very aware of them and keep myself in check. The awareness alone breaks the conditioning.
Focus on breaking your own conditioning, and the energy will catch on. It's linked to the reticular activating system of the brain. Not invested enough to dig anything up on the net right now but look it up if you want.

I think this is due to the fact that consumerism is the only driving force of north american society.
We are conditioned to consume. Consume consume consume. We're actually being pimped.

I often feel helpless about the state of the community.... 

The thought processes of some of our people are just wayyyyy off..... 

I do my best to give back and support but its so many other things wrong... 

We can't wait on the system to pull us up.... We must fix our own problems....

A vid of a random black chick suckin a dack while her baby watches is posted and reposted on WSHH, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, youknowyoudeadasswrong, LSA, BHM, the IC, etc, and the consensus is, "black chicks some nasty ass ratchet hoes."

Meanwhile, the myriad videos of white chicks phuckin dogs, snakes, horses, the gear shift of they Honda Civic, baseball bats, nerf footballs, bottles of beer, various vegetables (that they probably gave somebody to eat later that same day), and any and everything else they can cram in there are relegated to a specific few sites and general stay there. And even if it does get reposted elsewhere, the consensus is "she nasty...and probably drunk/high."

Propaganda
is a form of communication aimed towards influencing the attitude of the community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument. Propaganda statements may be partly false and partly true. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes.

As opposed to impartially providing information, propaganda, in its most basic sense, presents information primarily to influence an audience. Propaganda often presents facts selectively (thus possibly lying by omission) to encourage a particular synthesis, or uses loaded messages to produce an emotional rather than rational response to the information presented. The desired result is a change of the attitude toward the subject in the target audience to further a political, religious or commercial agenda. Propaganda can be used as a form of ideological or commercial warfare.

Recognize it. Reject it.
