Just Who Are Perpetuating the Black Culture Stereotypes?

The Daily Wire:

Video shows multiple women twerking next to and on top of an ambulance as paramedics tried to make their way through a crowd of Juneteenth partiers to tend to numerous shooting victims. According to the Oakland Police Department, some 5,000 gathered at Lake Merritt in Oakland, California, to celebrate the holiday on Saturday, when at least seven people were shot. Thus far, at least one has succumbed to their injuries.

The Juneteenth celebrations  resulted in dozens of shootings and other violent and destructive acts across the country. Unfortunately, this was predictable.

One could view this video and have many thoughts:

  • Why such a total disregard for human life?
  • Why hinder the efforts of paramedics to save the life your community celebration accepted as a normal sacrifice?
  • Why are those in the video so desensitized to shootings?
  • Why do the black women in the video degrade themselves to sexual primitive, animalistic caricatures exhibiting no self-esteem?
  • Why do the black men in the video promote the further objectification of black women by degrading them in front of the crowd gathered in some frenzy – like an aggressive act?
  • Why does the crowd in the video feel they have the right to become so out of control and destructive?

There are more thoughts but the one that stands out to me the most is – not all stereotypes of black culture are based on racism or bigotry. Some are based on reality.

Another thought came to mind as well- These women are behaving exactly as Black culture tells them to act to be accepted.

Exhibit A- warning extremely graphic:

Exhibit B- warning extremely graphic:

There could be at least 100 more exhibits readily available to post , sadly.

You tell me, just who perpetuates the black culture stereotypes?

"The simple step of a courageous individual is to not take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

I was born and raised in the enigma known as "The Big Easy." There, rooted along the banks of the great Mississippi River between the creeping bayou and Lake Pontchartrain, I was conscripted on all things pertaining to human nature.  I am the quintessential southern woman, that is to say, I defy most could never accurately define what that label truly represents.  Brined below sea level where one respects; the haunts lingering about, the force of storm surge, the ethos of Mardi Gras, and the sanctity of generational family-I know what it is to belong to an organically diverse culture.

Early on in life, my career path serpentined and led to brief stints of living varied experiences as I indulged my passions for painting, musical theater, and the culinary arts. My young experiences evolved my purpose and honed my intuitive skills and I became a Medical Professional specializing in mental health with a focus on child/adolescent needs. After living decades in NOLA, and after hurricane  Katrina unearthed the realities of modern-day inner cities, I made the pivotal decision to relocate to where my family and I spent our summers in a quest to find security and civility in my life.

High up on one of the "grandfather mountains" I now perch in a Smoky mountain community in East Tennessee. Although, I would not trade my formative years in Louisiana, unfortunately,  that era of  America  is  no longer obtainable in the times we live - changing course was the best decision "Evah!"

I am a warrior  for freedom and truth , steeped in my ancestral history ,I am constantly reminded that stillness and introspection expands the mind and heart to possess a more nuanced understanding of all things in our internal and external world. We are all destined to bash ourselves against the rotted cultural rocks of humanity's unraveling until we recognize that a shared moral tone is essential for a free society. A healthy culture is one comprised of many unique people who offer shading and depth to the experience of living, yet all choose to accept basic truths that bind us all together-a societal moral tone. Intolerance  , censorship, intersectionality, cancel culture, apathy ,and ignorance will only groom oppression and tyranny.  Critical thought, differentiation, and dissent is your individual right granted not by government -and must always be protected, championed, and defended.
