kinda made me proud to be Black in America. The reason I used the word
kinda, is because I’m not all the way there yet. When I watch what’s happening
in today’s society in America,
the movie depicts something a world apart from what’s taking place today.
As a person raised in the South in the early 1950s’, I witnessed things that let me know
America has progressed in a big way
since those days; however, the journey still have a long way to go.
Since Barack Hussein Obama became President, race relations in
have deteriorated. This deterioration by know means is the fault of President
Obama, this deterioration became prevalent because the acts of a few who just
couldn't live with the fact that a Black man is living in the White House.
During the push for equal rights for every American to vote, the majority of Americans were down with that; Whites stood shoulder to shoulder with Blacks. However, there are some today trying to turn the wheels of progress backwards.
I believe one of the most important actions that can bring this backward progress to an immediate halt, is for Black people to focus more on derailing Black on Black crime.
Let me go a little deeper on why I used the phrase, “I’m kinda proud to be Black in
I see White people participating in, and using racists terms and not cognizant
of their actions. I see Black people not mindful that they are participating in
acts, and saying things allowing Whites to believe that they accept themselves
as second class citizens.
