The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
This is the perfect analogy for racism and bigotry
This world we live in…
None of this shit is funny.
All of this is self hate.
All of this is dehumanizing.
All of this is foolish ignorance.
This is not only disgusting, but appalling as well; exactly how can we succeed as a community when you put down the very women who bring you up?
These “men” are children.
If you do not support black women, you do not support black power. Black power is not just for black men. If you do not support black women.. Congratulations! You have ‘slave mentality’.
The hatred of black women is taught by the white oppressor, older generations of black men, the media, and at some times other black women. As a whole, we cannot grow as a community if you HATE more then half of it.
Often when colorism is discussed in the black community, men and some women attribute darker skin as manly and attach racial slurs (non reclaim) to them.
Having malice towards darker skin does not make you above any person, and just to set the record straight: DATING, MARRYING, or FUCKING a white woman does not make you closer to the white man. You are black, that is who you are and that is who you will be, that is your identifier. NO MATTER where you will go you are black. You ancestors and your grandparents fought for the right to love one another.
So let me ask you this:
Is your mother an ugly monkey?
Is your sister an illiterate darkie?
Is your DAUGHTER, with skin the color of gold tier melanin UNWORTHY of human love and emotion? Should she be subject to the hate you spew from you ignorant lips? Are her tears useless, because she inherited YOUR skin?
For those who participate in such behavior, what is your skin tone? 9/10 they are as dark if not darker then the women they belittle.
This ignorance has got to STOP, if not for our current generation…. Then the next.

This is so sad.
Called my contact/recruiter today to check on some things and ask a few questions and one question I asked him was how much do I need to weigh for boot camp and he talking bout the corps want me 192. You got me so f up. Lol. I haven’t been that skinny since high school. He know I have a football build so if I can get my body fat % to around 18-20 I will be ok. My body is killing me but this body I’m fixing to have is going to be killer. Just have to stick these classes out. I love physical challenges. :)

Sad to know that she is on her way to the dessert but also happy for the experience and the adventure it will give her. God please be with the both of us for as she is down range I will be headed to Officer Candidate School soon. Whenever people see a service man or woman they should always thank them for their service to this country and to other human individuals. I pray that she stays safe and will come back sane and in order. Damn, I already miss the good times we have had. Those memories and the ones to come will always be cherished. Life’s A Beach
