From the Melanated Man:
Imagine placing your pet lizard in the glass jar or a shoe box, with no holes poked for air, enclosed in a small space with no room to roam and GROW!
(The idea of KEEPING A PET is screwed up anyway!)
That’s the BLACK MAN in the standard American workplace, blue and white collar.
From the garbage man to the Presidente.
What are BLACK MEN sacrificing by ASSIMILATING into a PREDOMINANTLY WHITE WORKPLACE?
Working for another type of MAN?
- Our dignity,
- Our sense of SELF,
- Leverage for our FREEDOM,
- True RESPECT from our families and community, *especially our wives
How can our BLACK WIVES honestly love and respect their BLACK HUSBANDS who serve a MAN who has no regard for their lives?
Factoring in that the traditional roles for men and women have swapped (*intentionally) with women overall becoming the sole breadwinners. You can’t tell me that DOES NOT change the psyche of women towards men IN GENERAL.
Are our BLACK WIVES actually in love with the LIFESTYLE offered by said MAN and his TECHNOLOGY…OR COULD IT BE THAT OUR BLACK WIVES LOVE THAT MAN MORE SO THAN THEIR BLACK HUSBANDS?
*That question will be explored in depth in an upcoming post VERY SOON…but I digress.
…The one that is unwilling to work shall not eat.
2 Thessalonians 3:10
The Bible is valid (*although it’s been tampered with) and I agree with this verse. But it DOES NOT mention HOW that work should be performed, who it should be performed FOR, and what ACTUALLY is WORK!
Context is important of course.
Man (nor WO-MAN) was NOT made to be IDLE; these bodies were created to MOVE and BE ACTIVE!
Due to our MELANIN CONTENT , the CONCEPT of WORK for BLACK MEN goes well beyond the boundaries set by the-powers-that-be (or CAUCASIANS) that suppresses our TRUE POTENTIAL to maintain THE MATRIX. We are SUFFOCATED through menial labor, tokenism, and illusions of caste elevation through our OWN efforts of Uncle Tomfoolery and SELF-HATE.
And it doesn’t matter if you are an *BLACK BUSINESS OWNER or not; we operate in an environment that is TOXIC to a BLACK AWAKENING! I mentioned something similar in a recent post, about doing what the Romans do…
We are better than that!
WE ARE VISIONARIES OF THE HIGHEST ORDER ON EARTH!
WE CAN CREATE AND BUILD ANYTHING FROM NOTHING (DARK MATTER, BABY!)
WE ARE THE MOST SPIRITUAL AND COSMICALLY IN-TUNED TO THE UNIVERSE!
BLACK MEN, we sell ourselves short because we don’t know or understand this.
WORK for US will lift our community up from the doldrums of poverty and despair, reminding us that we are the ORIGINAL CREATORS OF CIVILIZATION, that we can TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES.
OUR type of WORK will give us the ability to grow and mature in our MANHOOD as our ancestors did, who ruled the earth thousands of years ago.
OUR type of WORK will put the BLACK WOMAN back on the pedestal where she rightfully belongs. It will return the BLACK WOMAN’S overall confidence and respect for her BLACK MAN that has been lost over the centuries.
OUR type of WORK will be passed on through our SEED, good STRONG seed, to sustain and maintain a REALITY that can be PROSPEROUS for the MANY GENERATIONS OF STRONG, SECURE BLACK MEN to follow. Here’s a little secret BLACK MEN: YOU CAN CHANGE THE SEED YOU SEW IF YOU DECIDE TO CHANGE! Something to think about, huh?
BLACK MEN, ask yourself, HONESTLY, if your WORK meets the criteria above. Let’s take our *NEED FOR *DEAD PAPER out of the equation and let’s pretend we are not under the wrath of this PARASITIC, CAPITALISTIC system. And the fact we have to FEED OUR FAMILIES WITH A TOXIC WESTERNIZED LIFESTYLE.
Does your WORK meet the criteria?
Granted, my list is not the end-all-be-all, but I DO believe it’s spot-on for the most part. And I’m not perfect myself. I can improve in the WORK department as well. And I have…I think.
Mentioned in What Sparked My Transformation (Part 1), I don’t have a regular 9 to 5. I am a FULL-TIME FATHER (sounds better than STAY-AT-HOME DAD!) which I take very seriously. That’s my WORK, and I DO think that I’m affecting REAL, SUSTAINING CHANGE in my daughters’ lives in some capacity. I believe I’m meeting my criteria in some form or fashion: feeding them foods that will help them grow in great health and also their BLACKNESS, and keeping them out in the SUN as much as I can, because remember, THE SUN OF COURSE IS OUR MAIN BENEFACTOR!
I think they’ve benefited from their father having a transformation as well. Not to mention the MANY others in my life, including my followers, meaning…
This blog classifying as MY WORK. I think I have caused some people to think and become CONSCIOUS a little. That makes me proud and UPLIFTS me. Even though I’m not getting paid nor do I want to. A person’s, especially a black-melanated one, awakening means much more than DEAD PAPER.
BLACK MEN, that’s the effect we SHOULD be looking for!
Through this entire post, I haven’t commented on the fact that ,BLACK MEN, we work in areas that are hazardous to our health, physically and metaphysically.
The factories with the many UNNATURAL chemicals that could kill us over time through contact and inhalation, the offices we work in with tons of ARTIFICIAL LIGHT emitting from light bulbs and the computers, traveling from city to city on insufficient amount of sleep to gain more clientele, etc.,etc., ETC.!
We’re under a tremendous amount of stress from MASSA to produce for MASSA’S EMPIRE!
Shouldn’t be surprised to understand why one of the leading causes of death for BLACK MEN is related to the HEART.
We really put our BLOOD, SWEAT, and TEARS into this NONSENSE.
Again I ask BLACK MEN, does this CURRENT scenario meet the criteria?
You should know the answer to that question at this point.
REMEMBER THE PET LIZARD???
BLACK MEN, LET’S RETURN TO GREATNESS!
Peace and Love to my melanated family,
The Melanated Man
