I love my black people. They’re friendly to their neighbors, do their job and go home to their families, they exude positivity and most importantly uplift other blacks/African Americans.
I can’t stand Niggas. Disrespectful, nasty attitudes, negative from sun up to sun down, hate seeing another “nigga” or black folk doing well and minding their business and feel like somebody owes them something.
Niggas. The ones who live around the way. They may work during the day full-time, take care of their kids or spouses and own their homes on the block. Thing is “nigga” is something inside of them and like the color of their skin, won’t go anywhere. They carry this with them and it’s not a good thing because they don’t know how to turn it off. They absolutely hate to see another black person doing their thing especially if it’s a neighbor. The petty will never end and even if you mind your business, they will always have something bad to say or find something. Niggas are lazy giving all other races the impression that we don’t want anything, aren’t about anything and will never amount to anything or anyone. You can walk into a corner store and be called a bitch by a nigga all because you didn’t want to give him the time of day or number. You could have been polite as ever and smiled, he still calls you a bitch and goes home at night to the room in his mothers or grandmothers house. Niggas make you feel like punching somebody in the throat. How is it that, myself - a black woman, can’t walk past another black woman and give a compliment or say good morning and get nothing from another sistah in return? Or get the stank look “ like why is she speaking to me” type of thing. Girl! You aren’t that cute and it’s not that deep but I’ll let you have it lol. Crazy!
Black people. Like a breath of fresh air! Now, I’m not saying they don’t have their issues but it ain’t that deep to them. They live life like everyone else with careers, thriving business’ and worked for what they have. They speak with respect toward everyone and especially other blacks. They always want better or more and look for ways to better their situation. Conducting themselves with respect in public whether at work or just out and about is the norm for them. They grew above they counterparts and decided on something better instead of the constant negativity, fighting, and drama. They own their homes, raise their children and speak to their neighbors...no petty involved. Block parties, supporting the local black business’, and the old heads on the block that will check your child for doing something they weren’t supposed too. But it’s all love! Grand-parents being able to have the “open door” policy (lol) so you could see what mom mom such and such was cooking, hear a good story from her childhood or learn a lesson on anything about life. Seeing your neighbor from the next block upgrade their vehicle from an early 2000 something to the latest year and congratulate them for working hard with a handshake and a smile.
I had a customer come into the branch sometime last week, older black guy, very positive even though he had barely anything in his account, still had a smile on his face. Told me he was taking out his last for his daughter who needed something for college! He asked me how I was doing and how my day was going, vice versa all while I’m doing his transaction. He made the comment that he liked my customer service and it’s sad that when he goes into other establishments whether black owned or just working there, he doesn’t get that same positive customer service. I told him that I noticed the same thing and that we have to do better and become more of a unit like other races. They can all support one another, live in the same neighborhoods and do great things with no bad blood. Niggas, can not. I feel once we start with liking one another, then supporting one another, can actually work with one another and show more love, we may be okay. Until then we will keep killing one another, showing anger and better yet, showing black children that our behavior is okay and acceptable. It’s not. Sometimes I wish I could snap my fingers and everything could be different everywhere, not just certain areas. Kids could play outside and not have to worry about the violence around the corner. There would be way more programs available for children and the elderly to show people actually cared about them. Blacks would have more business’ around the way other than a barber shop, beauty salon, day care center or water ice stand. To give our people more variety so they won’t have to shop from the chinese, white, papi or african’s.
Until next time….
