Being Black Is Not A Monolith! – The Red Carpet

Are Black people Monolithic?

Are we all the same?

Do we react in a similar manner regardless of the vast amount of cultural, political, religious, nationalistic variables that we possess?

While the answers to these questions are quite obvious, many who depend solely on what the so called Mainstream Media puts out to the world on the imagery of Black people collectively may be led to believe just that.

But it’s also a case of life imitating art because many gullible and impressionable Black people feel that the limited roles that are projected to the world are the only manifestations of our “development” that are possible to attain.

Many of us have internalized that if we are not a baby mama, thug, dope boy, combative and confrontational loud woman, butler, maid, mammy, clown, stripper, buck, philanderer, prostitute, drunk or buffoon, that we cannot be anything else other than the limited people of that list.

Hollywood dictates what imagery goes out to the world and too many of us talk revolution when we are broke and unknown yet readily cater to the mentality of the people who cut those big checks and turn around to call ourselves “The New Black!”

So we fall into place never to make waves because we’ve tasted “the promised land” of a wrongly perceived inclusion and will sell out the rest of a suffering oppressed people because we think this will secure our position to receive more of the slave-master’s amenities.

But regardless as to WHAT Hollywood and the News Media platforms choose to project of us as a people, we are NOT MONOLITHIC!

Listen in once again to the brilliance of Dr. Ramona Brockett as she displays an insight that threads together the many shrouded factors that a cunning industry utilizes to manufacture a deadly perception that is the precursor to our total destruction if we don’t WAKE UP!

God bless you all and thank you for listening and your participation.

Peace, Righteous Love & Revolution Always,

Your Brother,
