(Note: I do not know if this is the "Black gay ad" that Irritated Genie is concerned about. But that AIN'T a father hugging his son. They appear to be two Black males married to each other....in America)
UPDATE: DON'T JUST LOOK AT 'BEVEL' - LOOK AT "VIBE MAGAZINE" - YET ANOTHER BLACK FACED PROPAGANDA PORTAL INTO THE BLACK COMMUNITY
He Needs To Ask: "Did NAS - The Black History Professor" Co-Sign On This New Black Gay Male Advertising Campaign.
ANALYSIS - YOU CANNOT "FIGHT PROGRESSIVE FUNDAMENTALIST HOMOSEXUAL ADVOCACY. YOU CAN ONLY FORCE BLACK AMERICANS TO SEE THE COSTS OF THE "MOLESTATION OF THEIR SPIRIT OF DISCERNMENT"
I must start out by saying that "BLACKNESS" alone is not a foundation for constructing a nation.
GO LOOK AT VARIOUS AFRICAN NATIONS TODAY to vet out this truth.
So called 'Black Unity' is ONLY used as a tool in places where Blacks are CONTAINERIZED in a predominately White nation. PERIOD!!
Whereas today we see "Blackness" used as a tool to DISARM 'Containerized Blacks' in support of an ulterior motive (Progressive Nationalism, Consumerism, et al) I do admit that I am tempted to give blanket support to people like "Irritated Genie" because he is aware of the attacks on Black institutions at the hands of Black faces who work for the "Confederation Of Progressive Fundamentalist Nationalist Factions".
He is calling out the systematic propaganda fed into the 'Black Community Consciousness Nucleus', unchecked by the normal 'Spirit of Discernment'. One only need to read "Ebony", "Essence" or "The NAACP Crisis" to see that a SPECIAL COLLECTION OF NEGROES are the content providers for these Black-faced propaganda portals.
To his credit "Irritated Genie" makes the case that his support for a BLACK COMPANY/BLACK PRODUCT will never supplant his BLACK COMMUNITY INSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY.
The Black shaving products company named "Bevel" has been in on the trend of upstart companies seeking to grab a portion of the market that is dominated by Gillette and Schick.
WALKER and COMPANY - Owner Of "Bevel" - Values
Walker and Company website
Walker and Company's CORPORATE VALUES Did Not Motivate It To Step In And Provide A CHARACTER REFERENCE On Behalf Of A BOOK WRITTEN TO GIVE 'YOUNG BLACK MALES A PURPOSE TO SUBMIT TO' - That Was Slandered As HOMOPHOBIC.
NEITHER RACE NOR SEXUAL PREFERENCE CAN TRUMP MATERIAL OUTCOMES THE COLLECTIVE STANDARD OF LIVING WITHIN A "PHYSICAL CONTAINER" (The Land)
Inside of the container called "America" - RACE and SEXAULITY can indeed be used as the basis of ADVOCACY.......as long as the underlying SYSTEM is providing WATER, FOOD, SHELTER, SECURITY and BASIC ECONOMIC NEEDS.
In that sense - most of the advocacy done by Black Americans are contextual.
The 97% REST OF WORLD BLACKS are living in a different realm.
As I noted before - most Blacks in this world do not advocate based upon "Blackness" (against their Black lead government) and the notion of so called 'Gay Rights' still doesnt' stand against the notion of 'Ancient African Tradition And Culture'.
Yet ironically - the very same people who claim that 'Slavery/Colonization Stole Our AFRICAN CULTURE' are themselves ready to go along with their Progressive American leaders' willingness to sanction 'Nations Of Color' who discriminate against homosexuals based upon their 'Traditions'.
This shows - once again - that "The SLAVE EXPERIENCE" is ONLY used as a bargaining chip inside of America.
The 26 Billion dollar male facial care market inside of the USA is a drop in the bucket of the UNMET NEEDS for 'Rest Of World Blacks'.
While a few of the people making comments on the YouTube video above ask: "Why are you spitting on a fellow Black man and woman who want the same freedoms that you want, but are GAY, thus creating a HOUSE DIVIDED?"
The larger truth is that as BLACKS AND GAYS fight their fight inside of CONTAINER OF AMERICA - they are of little use to the structural needs of the larger collection of Black people, many of whom don't have access to clean water to take a shave.
