The new black does not blame white people for our issues. The new black dreams and realises it's not about "pigmentation" it's a mentality. It's either going to work for you or against you.

same man who prides himself on being the only Black artist on the Billboard top 100 in all of 2013 as if that was his biggest accomplishment... being accepted by the whitewashed masses when he was  the main reason pop music existed in the late 90's early 00's Confused

I agree with him, while you can't change anyone else's mentality you can change your own and your circumstance. I see nothing wrong with telling people to get off their ass and start taking responsibility for your own success or failure.

It's weird because I live my life in a way that really considers whites as irrelevant.
The problem is, as I'm going along my merry way, they have a bad habit of injecting THEIR prejudices and biases in my life.
I would love nothing more for them to be a non factor in my life whatsoever.

It must be a strange place, where he lives. Whites don't systematically discriminate and all the black women are biracial.

There isn't anything wrong with encouraging self reliance and initiative. However this isn't what this is. It's respectability politics. Oh if you blacks weren't so angry and lazy then whites wouldn't be racist and discriminate against you. There are whites, Latinos, Asian, you name it that are lazy. However politicians don't routinely recommended and rally for shiftless whites to be shipped back to Europe. It's always Welfare blacks and never welfare whites. Heck Pres Obama is one of the most intelligent presidents we have had. He routinely has his intelligence and office questioned and disrespected. Our local news was doing a story about Potus and other former pres speaking for an event. It was former pres, former pres, former pres. and MR Obama.

Because the blame IS on white people. We can't break into a system that's routinely holding us back. Our educational system is worse, our neighborhoods aren't maintained equally, it's harder to get the jobs that do exist ...and why? Because white people, even at the lowest level, discriminate. Once that changes, more blacks will have opportunitues.

This ain't new, it's the same ol post reconstruction, smiling, I's happy for my freedoms massa negro. He has a LITTLE more opportunity because he's been accepted due to his own hard work mixed with luck, now he can act brand new like it was his black mentality, and not his black skin that made it more difficult than his white counterparts.

I think the problem with what he said is the way people interpreted it, because I didn't get any of that. I feel like he's saying that it's up to the black community to take hold of themselves and create their own avenues. white man won't give you a job, then make one. White man won't sell you a house, then build one. I think he's just saying don't use the issues of the white man as an excuse or diversion from the failures of the black community. Most of those welfare stereo-types you stated I hear blacks spout about each other the most.

Ill also add that retro blk had more self awareness. Even some of those who did co-mingle with white people. They realize the social dynamics that were in place that prevent prosperity within the AA community. Recognizing this does not remove our responsibility to ourselves to rise above. On the same note ignoring its existence brings no benefit.

Shame on Pharell and shame on these new blacks.  There is a difference between blaming whites and understanding your history and how it has shaped the present-day realities that the average black person lives out.  

I've heard these new blacks say 'that was whites of old not my friend Becky' but Becky damn sure cashes her privilege checks while side-eyeing your lack thereof.  Do mothers really think the state of the black community is wholly due to self-sabatoge?  Is this real life?  Maybe I could identify if I was born in 1992 or into money.  Nice beats or not there will be no Phawrong music in this house.  

Does it ever occur to people that they may have been in the right place at the right time or knew the right people?  Do people really believe all of their successes are a result of their flawlessness?  FOH

You have to play nice with the hands that feed you.
You have to sell yourself and abandon yourself publicly. You have to humiliate yourself first, infront of those who deeply feel inadequate, for the sole purpose of keeping up the charade and pretence of superiority.

And the rabbit hole is far much deeper, because what he doesn't know is that money is not real, and all who adopt the illusion of money is also being led astray, including the ones who created the illusion, because they know that they need this illusion for the very survival of their sense of identity.
How long can they run from the reality that they are just a by product of us? They do not exist separately.
Oh man. Life is great from the observer's pov. I don't think i'd want a piece of that devil's pie even for free.

The fact that he gets pride from being the only nicca to have a song in the Billboard top 100 is... kinda weird

for every other reason

oh nah… keep listening to people who preach self hate because the world respects THE out of black people in a suit and tie.

no matter what you do, say or dress like they’ll continue to do sh*t like

there’s no such thing as black empowerment while still shaming black people.

Quote The new black does not blame white people for our issues. The new black dreams and realises it's not about "pigmentation" it's a mentality. It's either going to work for you or against you.

   -pharrell


I think the point he was trying to make was too indepth, complicated, and important to be said in such a short, oversimplified, over-generalized way that stinks up what could be a powerful message.

He has a point that the mentality is a huge part of stagnancy in the black community. But the system creates that mentality,  from the media, people in our environment, and the actual government system. it was not always like this but that is what the system created. It doesn't mean we can't empower ourselves and break free of it, but it's foolish thinking to act like it is completely under our control either. Awareness, acknowledgement, and understanding of that is the way, not denial and delusion.

Black communtiy gets a smidget of opportunity, really no more than anybody else does-- actually most of the time less. The major difference is we are a minority, and the system is actively pushing against us, while favoring whites. This system is on all levels, the media, socially, in jobs, even the white house. (Look at how they have shat all over our president, and people look at the blatant disrespect and hindering of everything he tries to get through with dead eyes)

It just shows that even if you do improve your personal success, you can't go outside the black community barrier or actively contribute too much good to the community-- else the support you think you have from the popular media will vanish in thin air, like the rug being pulled out from under you. What you do must be in line with their agenda.the media also controls a lot of people's mentalities and priorities, and the mentalities of people in their environment. That's why black ppl need to break away from the media.

we should be teaching others especially young ones that from the beginning, you pretty much are trying to run against the wind. Mindset changes are important, it's the only thing we have control over, what we prioritize, and our strategy heading toward life. We cannot afford but to take full advantage of it, because there are too many factors against us. My parents are from africa and this is the mindset africans have and teach their children when they come to america. The black community needs to do the same, and teach the children this same mindset so they can break out of the poverty barrier-- they are at the same disadvantage as foreigners(if not worse) in this country.

You basically as a black person cannot afford but to try extremely hard all your life, and take advantage of every opportunity you have access to. This would in total be the only way to improve the black community, because the system will never help us, as long as it stays this way. we have to fight for everything. as long as the root of the problem(the system) isn't changed, it makes getting opportunity very difficult, because the system is actively working against us. To try and ignore that and undermine how hard you have to work and persistent you have to be as a normal person of color to be successful is foolish.

People in his position got there too easy, and are living the easy life because they are rich and that's why they don't understand the system. They got lucky and don't really have any experience. basically their spoilt brats, like everyone is these days. I am saying this and i'm only 20.

I like that post about retro blacks getting sh*t done, because they really did. Now adays we sprinkle a few rich blacks in the mix to influence normal blacks who aren't living the easy life to sit satisfied like sheep. I will not be turned into a sheeple. Thumbs Down

Peep the flex though, the new black doesn't want to focus on black.

Lmao.
Bye Pharrell. I think i want to bring my melanin to my new mentality.

He needs to take his light skin ass wannabe skater? self and go sit in the delusional corner.Sleepy And I used to like some of his stuff.
He's a coon in training. Most white people suck, once in a while a person may find a few that
aren't dumb asses or high and mighty. Just because he's close to white, doesn't make him right. WTH I am saying?! Yeah anyways he need to stop it.LOL

I watched the shorter one first and thank you for posting this.Thumbs UpClap After watching it she hit the nail on the head. If the black person speaks about the injustice its "you're too hyper sensitive" or "reverse racism". All bullsh*t. It's like we don't have the right to point out our own injustices, or it becomes "that black person who is just whining all the time". This is the kind of crap we are dealing with now. Even other blacks are being fooled by it, this recent societal pressure to not speak up about something that is clearly racist or offensive. We now encourage each other to shut up. It's some weird psychological brainwash that we don't have the right to speak up when we have been wronged-- and even when you do speak up, everyone has been trained to deafen their ears to it when it comes from the mouth of the person who actually experiences it. Then we get called the angry black woman, the aggressive black man, the reverse racist.

I'm watching through the first video(the long one) and it's very interesting. "Culture is a huge part of creating a stable human being" Her message really resonates with me. I'm agreeing with everything she's saying, gonna watch the entire thing.

Pharrell has done what the typical fund inflated negro does...get amnesia and the 'get like me' syndrome. Spitting into the faces of the very people who helped him rise to the top.

You don't think there will be some vague sweeping apology for our interpretation of his bullsh*t?  He's been crying a lot lately on TV, what if he cries when he apologizes?

This was a great presentation.  Wish I could have seen the slides.  We need so much more of this.  More people brave enough to talk about the chains and recognize that being American and being white is not synonymous.  More people to say we are absolutely incredible.  As wonderful as my parents have been I see their PTSS.  Thanks Av.

"However politicians don't routinely recommended and rally for shiftless whites to be shipped back to Europe. It's always Welfare blacks and never welfare whites. Heck Pres Obama is one of the most intelligent presidents we have had."

Lawd, tell it! I get so sick and damn tired of people like Rep. Paul Ryan claiming “inner city poverty” results from folks who’ve refused to work for generations. They claim those “urban people” would rather live off the government than earn an honest day’s pay. They talk about how crack cocaine has destroyed the black community.

You never, ever hear those same people talking about rural whites in the same manner. Nope, those “good, hardworking Americans” have been dealt a raw deal, a bad hand; their poverty is a result of circumstances beyond their control. You never hear those same folks complain about the various types of addiction that have ravaged parts of Eastern KY.  For them, poor people in Eastern KY are poor because of something that was done TO them; poor people in NOLA are poor because of something they’ve done to themselves.

Pharrell is right that there are some issues that are our own, of our own making, but even those issues can be directly correlated to white privilege, domination, and the policies they’ve enacted. The last slave was freed in 1964, not 1865. We never got that 40 acres nor that mule. Instead, we got an additional 100 years of indentured servitude, terrorism, robbery, rape, and murder. There are big problems in the Black community, no doubt, but in a very short period of time we’ve come a mighty, mighty long way.

The bolded is what I understood from his quote. Besides the fact that he may be a coon, a vampire, a _____________, he is right when he meant that you need to take responsability for your life.

That's because it isn't his reality. Why do you think that black boy who bought a belt at Barney's was harrassed by police as soon as he stepped out, and Jay Z got to work on designing something for Barneys? Because one was unknown and poor and the other is famous and black.

@starry - what was this test with college students about?

@pinkiecube - I see the "stop being so sensitive" all over the media. I hate reading the comments section on anything about blacks being discriminated or accusing someone of discrimination because they get sooo many nasty comments saying that blacks are too sensitive, they need to get over it, it's 2014, blablabla.

His Black card has been replaced with a 'coon' card, If ever he experiences racism, he must find a clear friend to defend him and confirm that it is racist, if this fails he will have to publicly admit to the black race that he was wrong and there is no new black in a twitter message, only then can the Centre for Coon control issue him with a provisional black card.
