So, a little look at what wordpress wants me to read is always interesting.
Black lady has a blog. Usual blog material. Children used to gain likes and some personal hardship stories. Most of the stories gravitate about her race. Like me and many others she feels it’s important to state her life matters.
Her blog promotes tee-shirts of one type. It has black lives matter tee-shirts and one of the slogans is – the link for amazon (I see no reason to support a racists blog) is just below in case you fancy one – LIGHTLY MELANATED HELLO BLACK
I didn’t know what this meant so I went and looked it up. I looked up the medical. I looked up the black lives matter material.
There is much to say here but one thing is evident, the people printing the tee-shirts didn’t bother doing any medical research.
On a tee-shirt promoting page stating, white people are constantly racist to black and brown people and that there were no nice words ever put in front of black, I was invited to leave a comment.
Well, strictly I wasn’t invited as I’m not black, but I am human and we are the same race so I decided to drop my two pennies in.
Probably best if I don’t repeat what I wrote. Let’s just say I’m fed up a certain humans promoting segregation of the races.
There is article after article about how awful it is that black people feel they are being discriminated against but there is no proof presented, just feelings, that’s not discrimination.
Actual discrimination is when you are not entitled to the same freedoms as others or are restricted from facilities and services on the basis of colour, gender or age. It is definitely not ‘hurt feelings’.
The word Nigga for instance…for decades white people in my country are not allowed to say it but black people still use it amongst themselves and on music promotional material etc.
I got asked to promote something yesterday on another platform. I read the material for the album and realised that I’m not allowed to say one line of it. Why would I promote any musician who is calling himself a nigga?
We are not allowed to say something that black people are allowed to say. That is discrimination.
By the way, I don’t want to say nigga, it’s and I’m surprised that black people do want to say and promote themselves saying it..
I going to assume it’s so they can be discriminative in their speech knowing it cannot be repeated or sampled by people not allowed to say it?
Well please remember, it’s not actually against the ‘law’ of our country to say this word. We just refrained out of politeness..Perhaps ‘artists’ should consider doing the same?
If you have a talent do it, share it and become the best you can, being black isn’t a talent it’s a stroke of luck – like being born white or brown or pigmented.
It’s not easy being human but if we all continue trying to be heard on merit of colour – that’s putting life in the shade and life is going to get very boring.
I’m bored of writing about it and I’m bored of reading about it.
Why can’t wordpress show me the people I’ve previously followed in my reader rather than promoting the same agenda as the national papers and media in my country. It’s sad and see through.
Peace for all.
