We work, we sell, we take care of our families and when we are viewed in the media (Devil Tv) it is only as the most unruly; undisciplined; laziest group of people who walk the streets of America. Every culture has a label tagged on them. For me the question is why is Black Americans labeled as lazy?
Is it because we refuse to work on a farm, or is it because we feel we are just as much as an asset to this country than any other race. Black laziness comes from a plan to stick us on welfare; supply us with the lowest paying jobs; and violate all of our human rights by forcing us to become a ward of the state. Not through the prison system but through the social service network: welfare. Therefore becoming dependent on a system that is design to allow them to have access to us, our children and our overall daily living. Let’s look at how we have become the sole proprietor of the label “lazy group of people.”
The statistics contributing to this label include: High unemployment, school dropout rates, crime rates, pregnancy, and prison rates are the situations leading to this so called label of laziness. If we were to believe this, you are subject to believing that no other culture here in America is considered to be as lazy as black people and you would be wrong on all levels. From the President to corporate heads, blacks have been a very big part in this country’s growth and success.
Pal Ryan cited Charles Murray, a conservative social scientist who believes African-Americans are, as a population, less intelligent than whites due to genetic differences and that poverty remains a national problem because “a lot of poor people are born lazy.”
When blacks are born into extreme poverty they are looked at in a different way than whites or any other race because the establishment uses words like lazy, worthless, no good, welfare baby and plain dumb to describe them. However on the flip side of this, when white people who grew up in a rundown trailer parks with the education of a ten year old they are looked at as country folks.
Black Americans have always been the subject of words that depict laziness. A culture that built this country, fought for this country, died for this country and is still mentally and socially enslaved by this country today. The struggles of being a smart Black American or lazy Black American: I think black people have fell into this bull shit way of thinking. We built nations, we built our Nation’s Capitol and we’re still building.
Is this lazy? You have three kids, getting $500 in stamps, rent $20, utilities paid and you’re getting a check for $800 a month and you have a man giving you $300 to $400 a month. I don’t call that lazy, I call that being smart and taking full advantage of system that put you on this welfare program so they can control your lifestyle.
