WHO IS REALLY FAKE?!
This topic could be happening right now because the AL-GORE-RHYTHMS have finally pushed me to the edge by CHOOSING TO SHOW ME a bunch of people that are constantly making comments online about "fake this and fake that".
Let me start by saying that this is not meant to disrespect anyone, but these bars shall be dropped on this here blog.
Pretty Woman, a 1990 movie starring the beautiful and talented Julia Roberts was a major box office hit and her highest-grossing movie to date.
HOWEVER, in the cover art of this movie, they only kept her head. Her body was actually photoshopped and replaced by a body double.
I personally think this is fine, it's entertainment, but I'm giving this example because who is really coming for Ms. Roberts? But what if she was a Black woman?
Can you imagine if Julia Roberts was a beautiful black woman on a major box office movie with a photoshopped body? I scoff at the thought. And digress.
When I see so many (Black) people bring up this topic of fake, it makes me wonder if the same energy is kept throughout their personal relationships.
It's VERY EASY to call someone fake when they are at a distance. (Which further proves my point).
MANY people are perfectly fine with fake if it's attached to someone or something you find desirable.
MANY people let fake situations ICE SKATE, CHA-CHA SLIDE AND DO THE MACARENA with people who actually deserve a consequence, while you hate on and judge (and often LIE ON) folk you just don't happen to like.
OR you DO like them, but you won't accept your own admiration so you do the next best thing which is to take the low and immature road of being on FAULT RADAR.
God, I swear I've dismissed so many because unfortunately God gave me the (very annoying at times) discernment of being able to tell motives behind actions, quite a bit.
It's often a delayed reaction after years of disrespect I let slide until I knew there wouldn't be peace anymore.
Discernment is quite a blessing, but sometimes it doesn't match how you feel. That part, I get.
But I don't get the inequality of (often loose) "principles" toward others. You definitely have a choice what you choose to entertain which includes shows, music and programs that make your mind focus on toxic behaviors all the time.
The same way you choose your daily diet (or lack thereof), you can choose the tone and vibe of content you consume regularly which could ultimately shape your view of the world.
((Bows head)) God, help Black entertainment because BLACK viewers are entirely too amused at watching their own people act like sh*t stains for humans.
The point is, with so many REGULAR complaints about this topic (whether direct or passive-aggressive), you would think the whole "fakeness" problem would be more under control, eh?
You know what's fake? Judging people with LIMITED CONCRETE FACTS.
You know what's fake? Lying on people who MIND THEIR BUSINESS to make yourself look better.
I can't even say it makes you look worse because some of you know how to spin a narrative with precision.
You know what is fake as all hell? N***AS WHO FOCUS ON THE FAULTS OF OTHER N***AS ALL THE G DAMN TIME AND NOT ONE TIME THOUGHT TO PICK UP A F*****G MIRROR TO ADD THEMSELVES TO THE JUDGMENT EQUATION.
So many people are very "honorable" judges for others while being powerful lawyers for themselves.
So many people think because they have a platform of some sort, they have the agency to give advice (meanwhile they drink themselves unconscious every night due to running from demons aka trauma). I'm not judging the drinking.
I'M JUDGING THE JUDGMENT.
And honestly, I DO believe that imperfection should have platforms (as they very much do). I had one for almost 5 years.
However, when people give irresponsible assessments of others (which are just projections of their own insecurities), I see the connections of why we are still treated horribly to this day.
Black hatred is absolutely an epidemic.
Whether people want to accept it or not, Black people are in a very peculiar situation in the US. Money does help where you fit into this group. You would think there would be a touch more effort to get on the same page. But NAH.
I di-FU**ING-gress. Again.
Word of advice...
IF YOU BOND WITH OTHERS BY PUTTING PEOPLE DOWN, YOU SHOULD GO READ SOME BOOKS.
CHARACTER IS A VALUABLE THING TO POSSESS.
PS: I love my filter game. I LOVE Y'ALL TOO. 💋
