Black people are always playin’ ourselves tryin’ to keep up with white people.
400+ years ago they said we were heathens because we weren’t Christians …then we eventually became SUPER CHRISTIANS now many of us are so blinded by religion it’s a shame… we *(generally) get tricked into all kinds of bullshit in the name of “Jesus” Religion influences how we vote, how we spend our money, how we fit into society etc…— White folks are like “hold on black people don’t be so damn Christian.” Black people watched various white ethnic groups (i.e. Italians, Irish ) come up off organized crime and then when we try to do the same thing -THEY BUILD A WHOLE FUCKING INDUSTRY AROUND INCARCERATING BLACK MEN. White entertainers made mockery of black folks (native indians, asians, latinos and others too) in Minstrel shows and built and influential legacy of entertainment. Black people get in the game and try to flip our own pain/stereotypes etc… and “they” act as if our shitty directors/film makers are WORSE than their shitty directors/film makers. Tyler Perry is terrible (imo) but there are literally HUNDREDS of bad white directors too. We’re just trying to keep up. White people have appropriated and dominated music created by black people for centuries…they even crowned their own KING of Rock N Roll (that WE created). We come up with Hip Hop music and manage to keep it mostly black and “They” act as if Hip Hop is the most vile plague to ever infect society….. and they blame Hip Hop for EVERY BAD THING that happens in American society. (note: I realize that we could eventually get kicked out of rap too… and the way most “commercial rap” sounds… I don’t even know if it would be a bad thing…lol) .
How to get the music (lyfestile/Altered St8s/Plan-B)
