The un-Balanced Social Scale

I was thinking to myself looking across the road at this all white trucking company… Where could a black man go where he was greeted and viewed as an equal? I mean, we all know there was one black person stuffed in some dark corner of the business but, when I say ‘all white’ I’m sure the masses understand that meeting some ‘quota’ to keep your money flowing in, and actually integrating other races and affiliations into the company is NOT a liKed concept nor is it given any kind of actual precedence or press.
Then that got me to thinking why is that? We can easily find Mexicans with landscaping companies and Asians with Reseraunt chains and Indians with hotel stocks. But African Americans? Not one. Does this, maybe have something to do with the fact that, those other races are seen as ‘true immigrants’ no history of ownership or inslavitude, no reparations owed, but never received. Through racism and intentional brainwashing (media and music) they keep our families torn and our minds on the liquor stores on the corner and the club down the street because after all the only blacks I see who make it are in the music videos or in the ring. You don’t have to value education, or learn beneficial networking skills because the truth of the matter is after all, sometimes ‘it’s not what ya know but who ya know’. “YOLO” started by people who worked hard to make something of themselves yet all we see portrayed in the media is the money cars and clothes (not to mention the hoes), making us value how we look to others, through superficial numbers that never add up in our favor. Such as, the more women you can get that much more of a man you are…but see how those numbers don’t add up because yes you may get ten women pregnant but if that was your only goal then you lose, because now we have more kids out there who didn’t have the guidance about life they deserved so they grow up to become men who reiterate the notion that we don’t need to own businesses, bank accounts, have a leg to stand on let alone a seat at the white man’s table.
