Is this “we are not a monolith” talk code for “I am one of the good ones”?

    It seems like that sometimes. Every time I see someone say that on here its due to them being into some shyt that most black folks ain’t into. Nothing wrong with having certain hobbies or interests. But to me it seems like when they say that they are trying to separate themselves from the rest of us. As if they are above the “typical” black folk shyt

    I can’t be the only one :mjpls:

    Black people are humans. Humans are individuals who have their own thoughts and experiences. A black human will have different thoughts and experiences than another, not the same thoughts like you assume

    Maybe some of us don't want to be associated with hoodrats and deadbeats, similar to white folks not wanting to be associated with rednecks and white trash :yeshrug:


    Let's have some standard for ourselves :wow:

    No.

    Not everyone had the same thoughts, feelings, etc. We dont operate with a hive mind. So i dont take it as :mjpls:. But then again, it depends on the context.

    I'm telling you there are people associated with the image of the modern black person that is negative. You can pretend they don't exist and aren't a prominent factor in our representation but any reasonable person will see otherwise

    I disagree. I've rarely read that on here or heard it personally in the context of something thats disparaging to Black people in general terms nor when in the context of an identified problem such as violence in Chicago. When I do see it its typically used in response to someone else trying to speak on behalf of all Black folks.

    And there's no shortage of Black leaders and census experts on the Coli who've earned the right to speak on behalf of all Black people no matter the subject. :skip:


    I'll will concede the way contrarian types come off occasionally at times fit the OP description. That doesn't necessarily mean they don't think their doo-doo don't stink though.

    I already said in the OP ain’t nothing wrong with having certain hobbies and interests. You came in the thread and elevated yourself over other black people right out the gate

    I feel you. But when one of the first responses in the thread is to distance themself it’s very telling
