... the other Black experience

Sometimes I hate watching the news. Every single day they report story after story about black people commiting crimes. They demonize black men and just isn't fair. People see the way the media portray us and they believe it! ITs not like white people don't commit crimes or get arrested. Sometimes I think that the news is just rascist as hell! I'm tired of seeing black faces onTV about things baby mama drama, drug selling, kidnapping, raping, stealing,and killing. I'm tired of being demonized by the fucking media. And I think its about time black people that WE stop givig them stories to tell. As long as we keep doing all these things to each other, things are just going to worse for us. African Americans need a new unbiased image. I mean it can't just be us breaking the law.

JICA, Me & my people was just talking last night on the subject of 2 kinds of perceptions starting with the BIG lie that Pat Robertson told the news that "the reason why Haiti Is going through what they're going through is because they made a pact with the devil" when in fact he is the devil. He lied knowing the fact that the majority of some black people dont know their history beyond Martin Luther King(& maybe)Malcolm X. And that's another reason why we keep hurting ourselves(as well as the Willie Lynch theory)because we truly dont know ourselves. Because if we did, There would be no news because they would'nt have anything to talk about. Besides, all the white people that are commiting the major crimes are all rich buttering everybody's bread including the media.
