The Sad Case of Black Self-Stereotyping — The GeoGee Experience Magazine — Medium


I don’t know why we (yes I’m including myself) Black people are insistent upon embracing negativism. And what makes it even harder for me to grasp is it’s negative connotations, references, and stereotypes of ourselves that we walk right into and get comfortable with. 

Then we proceed to wear this stuff as some sort of badge of honor.Take that word Nigger.

Yes, I said it. Nigger — no need tap dancing around it with that “N-word” politically correct bullshit.

It’s a word steeped in the storied history of Blacks that just won’t go away.It won’t go away because we are the very ones that keep breathing life into that word.

I'm a curious one that finds politics, social issues, and diverse progressive solutions interesting. I believe information and education are the most powerful weapons one can arm himself with. Those two dynamics alone open the doors to opportunities. I also subscribe to each one teach one for a better world for all.

  1. Wow! you dropped some real knowledge here brother and I have to acknowledge that while I don’t run around using that word, I do have a tendency to view it as harmless.
    But Gee that is just plain lazy thinking on my part.
    I appreciate your in-depth analysis of the origins of the word, as well as our tendency to embrace our negative characteristics as if they are a good thing.
    Thanks for challenging us all to step it up and begin rewriting our own story–from a conscious perspective.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to give it a read. I’m guilty of slinging that word from time to time but I’m working hard to diminish the use of it. The word will always be a part of history. It shouldn’t have any functional place in the present or future.
