BLACK VALUES TODAY: What ARE THEY?

It seems that the Black man has no values.

The Black Community is falling apart because of this. The black man only looks out for his own needs and not his family needs. Look how blacks kill each other over drugs, over women they don't have respect for. But yet the black man well kill each other because of the respect that they deserve.

This is why black women are moving on to Men of other races that well show them Respect and the Love they and their family deserve.

"lying cheating stealing other peoples cultures"

Black Males kill each other everyday because they don't "Lie and cheat each other" ? Think again.

The black man makes up his culture as he go's on and it changes every day.

You need to ask yourself "Can the Black man truly feel love like he likes to talk about ?

LOL! On the other hand, what does it say about our values that so many womenfolk find themselves in a position where they are *willing* to be commodified?
They've lost their sense of dignity. They are alienated persons wholly swallowed up by their alienation.

Actually, looking out for "number one" only is part of the dominant ethos and ideology of modern capitalist culture. Black men and women are not peculiar in that way.
But once there were OTHER VALUES as well;and those other values seem to have waned.

This is true, Savant - and it's at this point where I begin to seriously ponder the potential of intra-racial socialism as a force to counter this lack of dignity.

By "intra-racial socialism," I mean a voluntary sense of sharing among and between members of our own group. This could only work with people who were *consciously* trying to reduce the negative effects of consumerism, materialism and money-worship. It could be something as simple as two women of the same size deciding to jointly purchase an extremely attractive - but very expensive - clothing item or pair of earrings... or any of the other things that would normally cause lower-income women to seek out the sort of men who expect to "buy" female companionship.

The black experience overall is one of isolation and alienation. The only way to get out of that experience is to drop ones own sense of culture and self to get out of it.

Black males have zero room to speak on topics such as dignity and whose losing what. That is about as comical as it gets.

lol. No man or woman is an island. So one can't simply be about themselves and be successful. Unless they are deranged and call success by another name.

There ARE brothers who are making it in life in a very dignified fashion and Savant happens to be one of them. I view men like him as positive role models.

Please tell me you are not trying to hate on good brothers...

In fact, ALL human beings need to think about values--black or white (or other0, male or female.
Perhaps we have already dropped our "sense of culture and of self" in through our immersion in the corrosive poison of the culture of consumerism. At least many of us have. Perhaps THAT'S the problem.

Blacks are at varying levels of consciousness. So probably we could find people willing to attempt cooperative styles of life and cooperative economics. Those more conscious Black folk would have to be pioneers charting new paths for themselves and others.

Now how do we CHANGE those circumstance. That's the fundamental question.
