    nah, not really. stop hanging out with dumb nikkas. there are literally thousands of like minded individuals. hell, you are one of many on thecoli

    if you expect deviation from ignorance to win you friends, you are misguided. there has never been a person in history whose pursuit of knowledge didnt bankrupt them socially. that is why geniuses are often lonely

    Man it's good to have knowledge on shyt but the truth is majority of folks in this world dont care like you'd really think or choose not to wanna wake up.

    Majority of these women don't give a fukk if you on some woke shyt unless you got clout like solluminati to go with it. They just worried bout getting financed and piped good.:heh:

    Check buddy from the matrix with the glasses who knew everything bout the real world but STILL gave it up and double crossed neo and dem just to return back to that fake matrix lifestyle. Ignorance is bliss and its why you see a lot poor and dumb people being the happiest cause they ain't got the education/knowledge to know what's really up. Some people just don't wanna wake up.:manny:

    This. Same for me at 38. I used to go hard for the things I believed in God, Christianity, black pride, black empowerment etc.

    Now I just do me. People are who they are. You don't believe in God. :yeshrug: you don't want to learn about and say attend a rally or financial support causes fighting mass incarceration or helping black kids go to college :yeshrug: I just do me. I push my line but no more convincing grown ups for me.

    Me and my pops were talking about how most movements are spurred by young people. Think how young MLK was.

    When you get older a little "fukk that shyt" sets in. That "shyt" being trying to get others to become conscious.

    I feel you. There is a Baldwin quote where he says (I'm paraphrasing) to be a conscious black man in this country is to be constantly engaged.

    I would add to be a conscious black man around unconscious black men is maddening.

    Any people in yo circle feel the same as you?

    I agree with everything but the bolded. Especially the friends part. I used to have friends of all races when I was younger..not no more lol.

    Jesus wasn't white. Anyone with a understanding of geography knows this. White society pushed that lie in an effort to white wash Christianity...like they try to white wash everything.

    Bruh I just posted the James Baldwin quote which basically says this.

    Ignorance is bliss.

    Push the line..but you gotta unplug sometimes.

    man ignorance really is bliss

    it must suck being a young breh with some shyt like autism but these dudes have no idea about the fukkery in the world around them. They may not be able to engage in all the social shyt we love but they also won’t know the truth about society.

    They won’t know they (and our people) are trapped in this shyt. Some can come in this thread and try to clown it but clowns act like clowns because accepting the truth feels like it exposes the truth bytch in them. And they’d rather play it off like it’s another way.

    How can you consider yourself “conscious” and call Tariq an opportunistic charlatan?

    I slightly disagree. People in general are attracted to passion. They want to FEEL!

    Another tip, the tone and how its being presented matters.

    Giving people some intellectual food to chew on is some inspiring shyt!

    People want to see action. Too many "conscious" brothers just talk to be heard but ain't about doing shyt.

    @George's Dilemma

    You proving my point lol
    I never said i was complaining about institutionalized racism or pivoting from the Lakers game into Umar Johnsons opinion on interracial dating lol anything like that but these kind of topics and discussions always leads to Ad Hominem attacks or some kind of red herring straying away from the subject
    It always leads to being gaslighted or told to shut the fukk up if you not volunteering or organizing people in the community etc...for example one day at work a female coworker stated that black lives don’t matter to black people only when cops kill us other than that black people kill each other and hate each other


    I explained to her statistically that black people don’t kill each other more than any other race and explained that crime is a poverty proximity issue and provided statistics to prove that 99% of black men do not commit homicide or violent crime based on statistics


    She got mad and said nikkas ain’t shyt lol
