PROFESSOR GRIFF IS A GIMMICK HE IS FAKE pt.1
A recent conversation came to mind as I watched and listened to the video. All day could be spent pointing out different communication styles, cultural differences, the lack guns or violent threats, but that is off-topic.
More white people kill white people, and more black people kill black people. You are more likely to be killed by someone you know, and that is a fact. Most white people know white people and live among white people and most black people know black people and live among black people. Naturally, there are black on black crimes, as there are white and white crimes (domestic abuse, serial murderers, homicides and suicides) . Crimes are violent in any complexion.
In addition, data require understanding context to provide reliable interpretations that are meaningful as well as accurate. Pointing out black on black crime for the purpose of feeding stereotypes, detracts from focusing on police violence against black and brown folks as well as solutions.
Furthermore, when anglo-values are the contexts used to interpret data (findings), data validity and integrity become suspect. Black people and all non-white cultures are judged by anglo-values and not their unique values. Why is that? And why does that make a difference?
I believe Golden Lady’s anger colored her perspectives and in a discussion she might also accuse me of being white. Similar to anger, anglo-values color interpretations.
Golden Lady voiced feelings of darker pigmented black people who are the very bottom of the barrel based on anglo-values of society, including black communities. Remember, what other people think about you is NONE of your business!
Resentment builds over time when the focus is on what others think, instead of your own thoughts, gratitudes and future. Pigmented debates lead to further resentment and isolation, creating fragmentation and division within the black community. The end-result is STRESS with NO RELIEF, leaving us bitter or abandoning our cultures.
There is a world full of diverse people….In choosing opportunities, remember some like it hot; some like it cold and some like in the middle. Find people who like it YOUR way; stop worrying about the others who don’t.
