8 PM EST - “The last four or five hundred years of European contact with Africa produced a body of literature that presented Africa in a very bad light and Africans in very lurid terms. The reason for this had to do with the need to justify the slave trade and slavery.” - Chinua Achebe
There is a lot of anti-blackness in the black community from those perhaps meaning well but it is anti-blackness nonetheless and needs to be eliminated. It is understandable to hear this anti-blackness among people those who do not claim to be and are clearly not conscious of the various manifestations of racism.
I blame most of it on the anti-black media programming coming from white people who control 90% of global mass media of course utilizing the talents of their non-white employees to help push it.
I blame some of it on intentional deception in order to manipulate people into supporting an agenda.
I chalk up some of it to people simply not reading enough and not knowing the definitions of the words they are using.
