Despite what some of you might think - IN PERSON - I do not bring forth POLITICS to a group of Black people who I know. I work to AVOID IT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, because I already know the outcome: The "Intellectual Sovereignty" of the "Colonized Americanized So-Called Negro" is fully fused to HIS AMERICAN EXPERIENCE and POLITICS. (There Is No "BLACK" In His Experience.)
Just as when I walk into a business meeting with a room full of WHITE FOLKS and ask myself: "I wonder what these WHITE FOLKS talk about when there is no Black person in attendance)......I find myself saying the same thing about "Americanized Blacks" and their discussions that ultimately resort to two key magnetic poles:
- WHITE RIGHT WING RACISM
- AMERICAN POLITICS AS THE KEY VENUE IN THE "BLACK FIGHT"
In an recent gathering of friends I witnessed something that only a trained eye would uncover.
With at least two Black females who I know can't stand each other from previous interactions - they received SPIRITUAL UNITY with each other when the conversation devolved into the 'American Elections" only to predictably collapse into a CAT FIGHT, after they came to agreement on politics, and the conversation turned to more casual matters and a PERCEIVED SLIGHT was uncovered by one against the other.
THE MAIN STRUCTURE OF THIS STORY IS 100% TRUE.
I ONLY CHANGED UP SOME OF THE NON-RELEVANT DETAILS IN ORDER TO COVER MY TRACKS
|Among our group of friends, we both know that "Porsha" and "Kenya" don't get along, so we work hard to keep them away from each other and to focus on GOOD TIMES AMONG FRIENDS, rather than pettiness|
|After about 45 minutes of laughing, ribbing and small talk.........THE 4TH "Hillary Game Me Health Care" Commercial came on in the summertime cookout that I recently attended with friends.||"DAMN DAMN DAMN!!!!"
Someone just made a comment about DONALD TRUMP and I know where the conversation is going next.
(NOPE - in business I have learned to not contribute to the "Just Us Chickens" conversations about the RACISM that was suffered from the MICROAGGRESSION that one perceived from a White co-worker.
I have extended this to POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS among Black people. You will NEVER hear me instigate a political discussion, despite what you might think from this blog's content)
JUST AS IT IS OBVIOUS THAT "THE FILLED NEGRO BLOG" IS NOT "PRO-BLACK DEVELOPMENT" BUT ANTI-WHITE RIGHT WING ENEMY - So Too Is It Obvious That The Majority Of POLITICAL Discussions Among The "Colonized Americanized So-Called Negro" Is:
THIS IS THE 'RELIGION OF AMERICA'.
It has the POWER to compel TWO PERPETUALLY BATTLING BLACK PEOPLE (Two Females or 'The Crips and The Bloods' ) To Come Together AND VOTE as the "BLACKEST Expression Of Their BLACKNESS"
|FAST FORWARD about 25 minutes later, after the POLITICAL discussion had disappated and the conversation shifted to a more INTROSPECTIVE focus on:
In real life I CANNOT RELATE TO PEOPLE WHO WATCH "REAL HOUSE WIVES" and the other new Cat Fight Shows.
ONE COMMENT that was assumed to be a SLIGHT - because "Porsha" already had the worst case scenario about "Kenya's" intentions took it as a MIGROAGRESSION and she fired back.
ALL OF IT WENT OVER MY HEAD.
As a man who lived the Black Fraternity experience and has had close friends that we "Play The Dozens" against every time we see each other - THE SLIGHT is never cause for us coming to blows.
Of course there is always a measure of truth to the words but the best defense is to make an equally funny come back to brush back the other person.
NEEDLESS TO SAY when the temperature in the room heated up "Kenya" left the cookout early.
MY PART: When "Porsha" tried to talk about Kenya after she left - I RESPECTFULLY spoke up and changed the subject.
