Gentrifying Black Culture
 

 
I was thinking about this the other day: what if we were able to completely obliterate the ghetto, hood component of black society? I ask because if you think about it, the typical dream for most black people is to escape poverty yet still be 'real' aka 'hood rich'. That's what's promoted in rap and movies; that you can have money, but still be relevant to the bottom-tier commoner lifestyle.

The problem with that is it's a lie. People of means don't want that around them and those like me from the bottom don't want to be a*sociated with that element either.

So what if, over time, those elements were quietly removed from blackdom and replaced with propaganda that instilled proper purpose and motive within our people? What if the 'hood' aesthetic was targeted and shown as completely undesirable to young, impressionable minds?

The hood element was instilled in our people after “the man” coopted hiphop and turned it against us....


Since then, the music has glorified the degradation of our people by our own people...




They weaponized this sh*t my G... fr fr

That's why I'm excited for Kevin Samuels and his fame lately

He clearly calls athletes and rappers a different category since their money comes different, instead focus on the STEM based and intellectual and hard working blue collar guap. That's how this nonsense gets less tolerates

The thing is... these communities already exist and trey are living comfortably and they ain't worries, so just up to the rest to get him to it nd control that ethnic image!

Before the crack era this pride of hood status was never a thing. It’s hard to mentally take many people out of that, it takes decades. From at least the 1970s to now in 2021, that’s 50+ years. There were always wealthy or being built black communities that get burnt to the ground

Yep

I’m reading a book on how people are taken over by pride and ego and use circumstances to create a sense of identity. The book explains how to remove yourself from your past and upbringing and to stop trying to find salvation in these things!

And it ain't no projects
Keeping it real is not an understood concept
Yeah, complexion's not a contest
'Cause racism has no context

Hip-hop ain't got a section called "Conscious"
Everybody rappin' like crack never happened
Crips never occurred no Bloods to attack them
Matter of fact no hood to attack in

The problem is we a*sociate “the hood” with black culture. A culture is built on spirituality, economic resources, and language. “The hood” has none of that

I agree. The problem is that our people, especially the youth segment, has nothing else to feel proud about than "being real" or "staying down". There's no room for maturation in a subsect that so tightly holds onto stereotypes and narratives meant to destroy us.

I only hope KS isn't just out here trying to enrich his pockets off the struggles of blackdom. It's easy to continually find fault, but harder to bring real resolution. I would love to see a show where he brings on examples of his FBI/CIA people to show that it's not just pie-in-the-sky idealism propping up his platform.

the problem is, the world most black professionals live in, is the white man's world

i feel like a lot of 9 to 5'ers have to 'bend the knee' to white ppl society

keep up with billy, play tennis, go skiing that sort of thing, in order to get ahead. it's exactly what the movie 'get out' was about

if thats your thing do it, but a lot of us from the hood wasn't raised that way and don't see the appeal in that. i'm not losing my cultural identity no matter how much money i get, especially cuz white ppl (Kim k, miley, billy eilish, justin beiber, post malone, etc.) all want to be us

idk i might sound ignorant as fu*k to ya but i mean no disrespect

right I’m confused dog—



statistically, the majority of Black people aren’t living in poverty (hoods) and for the people who are it’s a lot grinding every day to create a better situation for themselves and their kids—

so when I see this goofy say “obliterate the hoods but leave the fat double wide living white lady with welfare babies running around everywhere”

I already know what time it is
