    Default Black People Don't Read!

    For those of you who heard it, this is the article Dee Lee read one morning on a New York radio station. For those of you who didn't hear it, it is titled BLACKS DON'T READ. This is a heavy piece and a caucasian (Obroni, whiteman, Oyibo) wrote it.

    Enjoy!!

    THEY ARE STILL OUR SLAVES we can continue to reap profits from the Blacks without the effort of physical slavery. Look at the current methods of containment that they use on themselves: IGNORANCE, GREED, and SELFISHNESS.

    Their IGNORANCE is the primary weapon of containment. A great man once said, "The best way to hide something from Black people is to put it in a book."

    We now live in the Information Age. They have gained the opportunity to read any book on any subject through the efforts of their fight for freedom, yet they refuse to read. There are
    numerous books readily available at Borders, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.com, not to mention their own Black Bookstores that provide solid blueprints to reach economic equality (which should have been their fight all along), but few read consistently, if at all.

    GREED is another powerful weapon of containment. Blacks, since the abolition of slavery, have had large amounts of money at their disposal. Last year they spent 10 billion dollars during Christmas, out of their 450 billion dollars in total yearly income (2.22%). Any of us can use them as our target market, for any business venture we care to dream up, no matter how outlandish, they will buy into it. Being primarily a consumer people, they function totally by greed. They continually want more, with little thought for saving or investing. They would rather buy some new sneaker than invest
    in starting a business. Some even neglect their children to have the latest Tommy or FUBU, and they still think that having a Mercedes, and a big house gives them "Status" or that they have achieved the American Dream. They are fools! The vast majority of their people are still in poverty because their greed holds them back from collectively making better communities.
    With the help of BET, and the rest of their black media that often broadcasts destructive images into their own homes, we will continue to see huge profits like those of Tommy and Nike. (Tommy Hilfiger has even jeered them, saying he doesn't want their money, and look at how the fools spend more with him than ever before!). They'll continue to show off to each other while we build solid communities with the profits from our businesses that
    we market to them.

    SELFISHNESS, ingrained in their minds through slavery, is one of the major ways we can continue to contain them. One of their own, Dubois said that there was an innate division in their culture. A "Talented Tenth" he called it. He was correct in his deduction that there are segments of their culture that has achieved some "form" of success. However, that segment missed the fullness of his work. They didn't read that the "Talented Tenth" was then responsible to aid The Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life. Instead, that segment has created another class, a Buppie class that looks down on their people or aids them in a condescending manner.
    They will never achieve what we have. Their selfishness does not allow them to be able to work together on any project or endeavor of substance. When they do get together, their selfishness lets their egos get in the way of their goal. Their so-called help organizations seem to only want to promote their name without making any real change in their community. They are content to sit
    in conferences and conventions in our hotels, and talk about what they will do, while they award plaques to the best speakers, not the best doers.
    Is there no end to their selfishness?

    They steadfastly refuse to see that TOGETHER EACH ACHIEVES MORE TEAM)! They do not understand that they are no better than each other of what they own in fact, most of those Buppies are but one or two paychecks away from poverty. All of which is under the control of our pens in our offices and our rooms. Yes, we will continue to contain them as long as they refuse to read, continue to buy anything they want, and keep thinking they are "helping" their communities by paying dues to organizations which do little
    other than hold lavish conventions in our hotels. By the way, don't worry about any of them reading this letter, remember, 'THEY DON'T READ!!!!

    BLACKS DON'T READ?? Hmm this is a deep one so over to you all let's hear your take on this.

    Do you agree or disagree?

    As sad as this piece may sound, it is very true. The Black mentality of "Blame it on the Whiteman" is stifling the progress and development of the "Black Mind".The Black man of today, would rather buy than invent, he would rather complain than be the solution to the problem. He would rather make "easy paper" than better himself through education and when the few who see the essence of exercising their brains in order to unearth their potential do so, they are berrated as being "soft".

    The Martin Luther King's, of old must be turning in their graves to see how wretched the Black mind has become. In deed, Black's don't read and like the writer stated, "they will not read this either".

    Well stated my friend. The ignorance of most black folks could't be more apparent. If we do not change our mindsets and attitude towards life, we would become extinct as a race by the next century.
