Kanye West is all over social media because people are up in arms about him saying slavery seems like a choice. I have not watched the clip because how people are responding is what is important. At face value this statement seems at least distasteful but everyone is free to express themselves. But I see a deeper revelation from this the fallout.
SLAVERY WAS A CHOICE
Our ancestors could choose to remain slaves or try to escape or rebel and risk death and possibly the death of any loved ones. Now that is a shitty choice but it is still a choice and we have ancestors that did all of the above and I would never judge their decision because the key is we survived. We were not exterminated and I thank those who chose to endure in hopes that a future generation would know freedom and those who escaped and rebelled and died or succeeded. They are all us and they all played a vital role in our reality. Our history offers us lessons if we are open to learn them but judging by the continued terrorism black people face in the US, it is clear black people still have some lessons to learn. Why does the so called black man and woman chose to remain loyal to a system that was made to oppress them? We are all making choices everyday and just because we do not like the options doesn't mean the choice does not exist. The truth is not always comforting but must always be spoken.
VICTIMHOOD & GIVING YOUR POWER AWAY
Just because you are the victim does not mean you have to remain the victim. To claim that you have no choice is giving your power away. And to say our ancestors had no choice is to take their power way. Making a group of people feel powerless is the ultimate victory in oppression. Saying you have no choice is to admit defeat and to ask your oppressor to free you is admitting you do not have the power to free yourself. This makes you the ultimate victim because there is nothing you can do to attempt to save yourself. So the alternative is to accept your status and just complain about it in hopes that your oppressor will have a change of heart. People addicted to power don't chose to give power up and even when they appear to have had a change of heart, they just figured out another way to oppress. Yes black people are being actively oppressed and they are a victim of someone else's actions but to give in to oppression with no plans for how to overcome is playing the ultimate victim and AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT! We are so much more but we have to claim our power first.
You are under spiritual attack! The masses are possessed by whatever they pump in the media rather it is social media or primetime news. By controlling what people are thinking, they control their actions. They can be sure that people are going to express outrage and disgust which means they are not focusing on a solution to their oppression. The events are happening fast to cultivate a sense of powerlessness in people. Most are sheep being herded in whatever direction the oppressor guides them . The average person is so engrossed in their everyday grind that thinking for the next 2 generations is unfathomable and most see no end unless the US just suddenly becomes honorable which it has never been. But as long as they can keep everyone in a state of outrage they cannot effectively fight oppression. They use their celebrities to keep the masses occupied with entertainment, sports, politics and religion. This is the zombie apocalypse that has been in movies and tv shows, they were showing the people themselves but they embellished for entertainment value. People are just out here reacting to outside stimuli which is exactly what zombies do when they smell fresh meat. Celebrities are used as tools of oppression and cast spells over millions of people with whatever they are talking about or whatever conflict they are in. The masses are basically possessed by these "demons". They used religion to make possession and spells spooky and hokey while using them on the masses. You are under attack from all angles.
Remember in everything you do, you have a choice and just because you don't like the options doesn't mean there isn't a choice. Fearing the consequences of a choice doesn't mean the choice doesn't exist. We have to start being honest about the situation facing us and the power we have to change it. If you truly feel you have no power to change your circumstances then you are the ultimate victim and will continue to be taken advantaged of and abused. However, you can choose power and even if you do not change anything you do, you can claim your power to continue to make the same choices. Our lives are not forced on us but at times our choices are limited, don't be afraid to make the hard choices because freedom doesn't come free when there are those who want to oppress. This is reality and we have to acknowledge a change has to be made and commit to find a solution to our problems. For the Culture Ministries is my solution.
