Real question that will be ignored. Good night. See, success is to be found here…personally and socially and it is totally ignored. Yes, I am a bitch. I ask hard questions. I am curious. Good night.
A lot of people don’t want to see African Americans as well-rounded…
Also too many Black people who have bought into to this notion that certain fields are not for us to partake in. That we’re to inept to get involved, it’s that whole “Black people don’t do that” thing, which feeds into us being inferior within our own communities.
Oh yes, I am aware. I am a BLACK woman for all intents and purposes and I am the only one that I know of, outside the UK who does what I do and am paid exceptionally well for it. You set your limitations and they are yours. Not promising you will always succeed, but enough of us do and that is the change we need. Thank you. I am waiting for the day when more smart people, and yes, of colour, get their spines together and own their shit and STOP STOP deciding your fate based on some asshat who is irrelevant liking or not liking you so you drop the fucking ball. Do what you are passionate about (preferably intellectually - as that is where the money is) and run, run that race that counts and not surprisingly you will end at the top of the heap. Not bullshit. Fact. Do the math.
Let me give you some examples before I drop the topic.
Your President…the best golfer in the world. The top three drivers on the planet. The person that created the cellphone. The person that augmented cooking oils. The person that made laundry services work as an economic vehicle. The person who wrote one of the most fundamental programs for computing at IBM. I could actually go on. See, they didn’t buy into the bullshit. They did what they were passionate about. Stop limiting your growth as a people based on pigment. Your skin colour is irrelevant. If you start out at the gate going oooooooh woe is me, no one cares no one likes me. Um no one needs to. Stop with this shit. Do what works and you are passionate about. No one owes you shit. Your intellect is what counts. Right…I am gone. Every now and then I get this bee in my bonnet because I see so many with such great potential FUCKING THEMSELVES with irrelevant superficial needs when they could BE so great. You are your worst enemy. Not the outside world. In case you have not notice. Anything done and achieved that changes the world, is not done by the fucking masses, but by the people who say…FUCK THIS SHIT and DO. The sheeple follow and maintain what you bring into the world. They too have a purpose…but first own your SHIT and that VAST intellect you are hiding.
