cc I know why you didn't understand the Mercedes analogy. The bible don't say nothin about go forth and buy luxury cars
Oh, folks following The Bible when it comes to being fruitful, but the parts about marriage, adultery, laziness, etc. can be conveniently ignored?
It's humorous how folks, (myself included), pick and chose which parts of The Bible we can use to justify our actions.
A person " be fruitful and multiply" by someone they're not married to, multiple times, not work and leech off "the system", but some folks ignore the adultery and sloth aspects of the situation but screech that the "fruitful" part is perfectly ok because The Bible said so.
I seriously enjoy BHM. If it wasn't for BHM, I wouldn't know that there were so many seemingly educated and successful folks that support the rights of criminals, leeches, self destructive behavior, the "baby mama/daddy" epidemic,people not striving for better, people having no sense of pride, accountability and self sufficiency, to the point you would think they hope Black people will continue to fail.
So many Black leaders fought and died for us to have the right to get educations, get a fair wage, work jobs that weren't accessible to Blacks, fair loan rates for home ownership ,etc., and now we have folks that continue to pat folks on the back for not even attempting to exercise their rights that those leaders gave their lives for.
It comes across as either; enabling and encouragement of failure for whatever inconceivable reason or a purposeful attempt to widen the financial distance between themselves and the poor, by dayum near telling them it's perfectly fine to do things that detriment their lives.CONTINUOUSLY. (Like the skinny friend that encourages her fat friend to eat what she wants so she can stay the "skinny one." )
And then get angry at folks that want to see poor/uneducated folks at least TRY to improve the situations that they whine and moan about.
I'm glad I don't associate with folks that every time I make a detrimental decision,(that 99% of the time, the outcome was predictable), tell me it's perfectly fine, don't worry about it, keep up the good work, other folks should mind their business, the Government, The Bible, the Man In The Moon, etc.
With friends like that, I wouldn't need enemies.
This is an eye opener. Makes me fully understand why, as a race, we seem to be going backwards instead of forward. Too many of our own endorsing and supporting our failure and attacking the ones that don't.
This is truly scary. And totally mind blowing. I'm not exaggerating. I've lived in several states, numerous cities, encountered and worked with people from a vast arrange of races, cultures, ethnicities, education levels and socio-economic classes, and have NEVER, EVER heard/read/observed the ideologies/sentiments expressed on this site. (If I did, they were so few and far between that I don't even remember.)
I'm sure my ideologies/sentiments are just as bizarre and inconceivable, etc. to some of you as yours are to me. "How could someone, that genuinely loves their own people, possibly think like that?? You would think they detested them."
I'm not saying this to be disrespectful, throw a job, etc. I REALLY can't begin to understand why so many intelligent, educated, professional minded, Black women come across,(to ME), as encouraging failure and non accountability.
I could never begin to understand that stance. Surely, some things aren't meant for me to understand.
