TELLING BLACKS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY
FOR THEIR LIVES AND STOP BLAMING RACISM!
"On Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver
took to Instagram to give his thoughts on race
relations in America and
explained that the reason black people are unsuccessful
is not because of white people,
but because other black people are holding them back.
First and foremost I would like to say I do a great job minding my own business but it’s pressing on my heart to share my thoughts about white Americans & black Americans (racism). I saw a person quote Charles Barkley when he said, “We as black people we’re never going to be successful not because you white people but because of other black people.” I hate to admit it but I understand that quote.
Bryant expands upon this message by remarking that while racism, such as what leads to racial profiling, does exist, too often African Americans embrace a message that scapegoats racism rather than a message that focuses on individual accountability:
I’ve been racially profiled on numerous occasions but not once has it influenced an ill feeling inside me about anyone outside of that issue. REAL SLAVERY is different from what’s going on in our world now.. we all (every ethnicity) have the opportunity to lead by EXAMPLE. Instead of making videos about the history of racism that get applause or people with influence merely doing things to post for social media we should focus on individual accountability to be better as a whole.
"Real question what is wrong with being sophisticated and black? Why do we associate those who chose the straight and narrow as not being “black enough.” … We focus hard on fighting the realities that exist instead of creating our own reality. The ones who came before us (Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X…) paved a new path for us to follow. The struggles and hurt they endured created new life for us today. It is not our job to carry the burden but it is our job to lead by example."
Bryant’s message is unique today, especially among prominent African American athletes and celebrities who often lament American injustices onstage, in the media, or on one knee on the sidelines while the national anthem is playing.
