When you're a successful brotha you are considered arrongant. when you're a unsuccessful brotha your considered a loser, deadbeat dad, jailbate, etc how do we blackmen deal with this mindset and do you think it can harm your success as a acheiving blackman.

Here is an example

------
Lots of black females (all of my friends) are already starting to do this. We ignore all black males who aren't family members. We don't talk to them, we don't look at them in the eye, when we do have to speak we make sure to talk AT them, not with them as if they are equals. Let them know that they are worthless c**n$ and they will crumble, because they know it's true. Also, always bring up their negative statistics, especially regarding HIV/AIDS. Never miss an opportunity to tell them that they make up the majority of AIDS cases in all countries, including America, and that they make up 94% of AIDS cases in blacks, while black women only make up 6%. It's like a big slice of humble pie.

This is called "negative mind conditioning".

Sure success black men are arrogant; when judged by the metrics of those who have a narcissitic interest or need to keep us at the bottom of the social/economic food chain or to keep us available as their default option for everything wrong in their lives. Successful Black men are arrogant for no other reason than the fact that we refuse to consent to the notion of our inferiority!

I agree it's crazy how we're viewed as arrogant truth of the matter people would rather see blackmen struggling then to see us successful even our women but there the biggest critics.

Narcissistic individuals can't tell others "well done" or "good job" because they feel lessened. Therefore, they must degrade people.

Lastly.

Women = high self esteem
Men = inflated ego or arrogant.

When women refer to their ego, it's positive or self esteem and a man's ego is negative inflated.

What's the difference? Euphemism!

It does not harm your success, I don't understand the arrogant part but I do understand why they can sometimes treat people like dirt. They were treated like dirt when they were climbing the ladder and they have not gotten over it. A lot of people hate you whether you are at the start or finish line.

A lot of people will see a successful man as arrogant just because he refuses to settle. It is good to aim for the best of anything, that way you could atleast get something good.

I feel what you saying but I was askin due to the hypocrisy of society when it comes to us blackmale when we are not successful people of all races even our own women go off on a anti blackman agenda rant then when we are successful people tend to still look at us in a negative light.

Successful people in general forget where they come from, sometimes. I love to see a bm/bw make something of themselves but when you have to put your nose so far up in the air after you make it, that you can't speak, it makes a congratulated success turn sour.

On the flip side, I have seen folks make it and don't change a beat. Just because they drive a better car and wear better clothes and can afford things they once couldn't, they stay the same cool person.

Money make a lot of folks that never had anything lose the most important things in life, like family and friends.
