Black Republicans Promoting Self-Hatred? I Don't Think So by Akindele Akinyemi
I would like to take the time to discuss self-hatred. I get e-mails all the time about how I am practicing self-hatred against Black people. This is because my harsh statements on Detroit or Black men should have an option to date outside their race. This is not self-hatred. This is the world in which we live in.
Many Black people feel that those who demonstrate a preference for clothing styles, music choices, etc. that have been predominantly associated with white culture are self-hating. Almost all feel that being a Black Republican is a form of self-hatred. This is so far from the truth. A Black Republican hating himself is no different than Black democrats hating themselves.
There are so many young people in the liberal wings that has followed their parents on hating anything different that it is ridiculous. They teach their children to stay Black and not intermingle with Whites and other races of people. They teach them African-Centered socialist information that keeps them angry at the world and keeps them in a mindset of oppression. Not one time they are taught how Blacks and other races of people built the world when studying world history.
According to liberals, self-hating Blacks are defined as those who have multicultural friends, denounce homosexuality, denounce poverty from their minds, accept free market capitalism as a means of survival, believe in traditional Christian values, don't party with people that are not going anywhere, don't use drugs or lay up with anyone, love God more than their family and friends, and accept America as a great nation. They have old school values and are family conscious.
This is defined as self-hatred from our liberal counterparts.
So you find Black Republicans that are in the pursuit of happiness more than their Black liberal counterparts. Black Republicans who do not support welfare as a means of survival.
Now allow me to flip the script.
Just like I asked the question a while ago, who are the real uncle toms in the community, I am asking who is really practicing self-hatred?
Self-hatred is anyone who supports failing public schools and have no clue or option for our children. It is a type of person who enjoys using drugs, having sex outside their relationship and passing diseases to their loved ones.
It is the type of individual who sits on their asses and complain about Urban Michigan without giving solutions. They are the ones that consistently vote for the same Black Democrats based off name recognition.
Speaking of Black Democrats, any Black Democrat that do not vote their values according to biblical principle is practicing a high degree of self-hatred? For example, any Black female or male Democrat that come into the community and tells their constituents that they do not support abortion but receives money from EMILY's LIST is practicing self-hatred.
Self-hatred is when I turn on TV 33/FM 88.1 WHPR and hear Call Em Out giving away Sambo Awards. This is self-hatred to the highest level. When I hear the Council of Baptist Pastors denounce candidates who are biblically versed and go on spiritual values this is self-hatred on a spiritual level.
What about accepting homosexuality? You love your boy or girl more than the opposite sex. A form of self-hatred.
Accepting welfare and poverty as the norm? Self-hatred.
Thinking you the stuff because you have a bridge card instead of VISA or Master Card? Self-hatred.
Always begging for the crumbs that fall of the table financially instead of investing in your education and working hard to live? Self-hatred.
Accepting lawlessness in our community as the norm? Black self-hatred.
We accept BET, VH1, MTV, WJLB, 102.7 FM as the norm for our children while we should be educating them at home? Self-hatred.
Hating any Republican, even the ones that look like you but loving those people who would enjoy wiping you off the face of the Earth? A form of self-hatred.
Accepting socialism/communism in our community? Black Self-Hatred. Brothers not at home or sisters hoe ing around with other men while they should be working on their marriage and spending time with their children? Black self-hatred.
Killing our people while civil rights groups and African-Centered nationalists sit on the sidelines and do nothing. Self-hatred. The self-hatred runs so deep in the Black Nationalist community that they hide behind their African centered masks and practice victimology. That is nothing but hatred of self.
To them when we promote family values in our community and choose to move to the suburbs we are practicing self-hatred because we are supposed to stay in the hood. Even if it means costing your freedom or in many cases your life.
And then when we propose solutions to save our community like regionalization or privatizing or educational choice Black Republicans are promoting self-hatred.
The real Black self-hatred are those who are afraid to live in the real world.
