Currently as divided as we are now we might as well forget optimism, and give up hope of ever living the lives we strongly desire and deserve. Online dating has evolved immensely and we have a niche for everything you can imagine!
You can find dating sites for men who like big women, interracial dating sites, black women and white men only, Asian only, Jewish only, Lesbians only and the list goes on and nobody has any issues with these – there are even sites for people who wish to have affairs and people with STDs!
Intending to break the mental chains and the victim state of mind, although it might be perceived as a simplistic/generalist approach remember even the greatest problems we encounter surprisingly have the simplest solutions.
And it is my strong belief that getting everyone on the same level and platform and opening up a simple conversation is the first giant step we have to take.
Although some may argue that the context of the lyrics are predominantly relevant to the African American people, they are furthest from the truth, in real sense the issues regarding the cycle stemming from poverty to drug dealing, gang violence, police brutality is almost identical in every black neighbourhood in the world, no matter the zip code, whether in Chicago, London, Paris, Johannesburg or Lagos.
Organized crime stemming from economic inequality and deliberate denial of opportunity is almost similar in all-black communities with a varying exception on the degree of severity like violence and police brutality depending on where you are from.
The fact that we as black male are raised to the notion that concealing our feelings and emotions is a trait that adds to the value of our manhood doesn’t help, it only makes the black almost unreachable on a level of normal human connections emotionally thus shutting down only add to counter-productivity in all aspects of our daily life and this negative chain of reactions tickles down to how we treat our loved ones.
, unfortunately, it does not transpire well, as relationships fail due to the ability to express the hurt and anger unfairly imposed on us.
In my current diverse era of popular music, and the instant Internet gratification of viral fame it’s hard to miss the message being passed on by our young blood, while most of it may be true half of it is fabrication to satisfy the unfortunate self distorted image of how it feels to be black, because in reality not all black people pop opioid pills, or mix lean (codeine) in their soda for leisure, sell narcotics for a living or have a ton pile of assault rifles laying around their homes as constantly depicted by the so call mumble generation of rappers.I can go thousands of words deep days about this but without a workable solution it is meaningless literal blabber It may be appropriate to recommend awareness of self first and acknowledging the odds against black men and the adaptations to manoeuvre this dangerous moment that yields lifelong consequences but the solution lies with the realization that dysfunctional state worsens when we are divided as a community thus easily conquered, and as political as it sounds unity of the black masses is the first step in healing the tumour that is constantly plagued against us, that is getting all people on board and opening up the vital conversation affecting our kind in general.And how is that possible to unite mass of colored and people of African heritage from different continents, well that’s a no brainer, the universe has already solved that problem for us, and that is through technology, and by leveraging our universal access to online social platforms we can create a platform custom-tailored to us and our specific needs and of course rational policies to avoid drifting from the main purpose of creation of such a platform, such that then dynamic movements like Black life Matters won’t be a onetime time event that trends only for a few weeks after an atrocity against African people occurs but a way of daily life empowerment to the people of our heritage.This sequence leads to the creation of a maniac and dangerous carefree state of mind and we sure know what follows violence of sorts, crime, truancy, and ignorance.
Thus the next time you come across the phrase ‘break the program’ hint those last few words.One thing we have managed to maintain in our ever changing world is our freedom to have preferences in who we date.
