From the Melanated Man:
A friend of mine once told me that the body, your body, my body, is ultimately a slave. I knew exactly what he was talking about but didn’t understand the gravity and depth of the idea until recently. For those of you that believe that the body is a temple as the Good Book suggests, or a vehicle/tool for the soul, you can probably level with me a bit on what I’m about to say.
We give our bodies the food we want to give it.
We exercise and train our bodies the way we see fit.
We place our bodies through many, many dangers and risks that I can’t list all of them at the moment…so we can enjoy our lives and have fun, to alleviate the feelings of grief and sadness in times of despair, or for simple tasks such as commuting to work or school on a daily basis.
Ultimately, we are in control of our bodies. We choose consciously and unconsciously how we use it, what we do with our lives, based off our inner desires. And alot of the times we willingly choose to give our bodies, our time, to ENTITIES that don’t add any value to our cause and existence.
Maybe it’s time to reevaluate our goals and aspirations. I digress, but anyway…
No one can make you do what you don’t want to do…everybody should know that by now.
And when it comes to the plight of the BLACK-MELANATED individual, a dangerous game is being played on our psyche concerning this topic.
On one hand, you have statements like “you can’t blame the oppressed for their own suffering”, “the oppressor likes to shift the blame to the oppressed”, or when it concerns indigenous peoples in all parts of the earth “the colonized.” It’s as if we don’t have control of our situation, our bodies, OUR LIVES.
Sounds like the platform for Democrats.
On the other hand, there are statements being made such as “you must take responsibility for your actions”, or my personal favorite “you must pull yourself up by your bootstraps.”
Sounds like the platform for Republicans. Now I understand the GAME of politics.
WHICH ONE IS RIGHT??
Considering that the-powers-that-be, the elites, Massa and their agents are the ones who are making these statements, it doesn’t matter which side you choose. At the end of the day it only benefits THEIR agenda.
I DON’T BELIEVE IN ANY INSTITUTION OF SLAVERY OF ANY KIND, FROM ANY TIME PERIOD, HOWEVER BRUTAL IT WAS, REGARDLESS OF WHO WERE SLAVES!!! THERE IS NO WAY ANYONE CAN MAKE YOU A SLAVE WITHOUT YOU WILLINGLY GIVING IN TO THEM!!
Uhh ohh…so what’s the real deal? Is it possible we could be responsible for our own suffering?
Maybe. We have to do a double-take on our MY-STORY, our mystery I mean. Because unfortunately it’s still a mystery to us.
QUESTION THOSE WHO PERPETUATE THE SLAVE NARRATIVE, EVEN IF THEY’RE BLACK! ONCE YOU REALIZE THE POWER YOU HAVE IN AND OVER YOU LIFE, EVERYTHING WILL BECOME CRYSTAL CLEAR!
But as mentioned so many times before, if you don’t have KNOWLEDGE OF SELF, you’re EASY PICKINGS. As my mom used to tell me, “if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!”
As I would say, “if you’re not a slave to yourself, you’re a slave to someone else!”
Think about it.
Peace and Love to my melanated family,
The Melanated Man
