Full disrespect my nigga, but the only reason why you reacting is because you’re projecting your inferiority complex on them. Be real, YOU saw Lamar as a crackhead. YOU reserved no empathy for him. And now you’re tryna dispel your cognitive dissonance through making it about some conspiracy of making black people not empathize.
Evading accountability is returning to the slave master. It’s a river that is contained by an ocean. Why don’t you instead take a look at how mental health is taken? I’ve seen an overwhelming number of people saying addiction is a choice and addicts deserve to no sympathy for the bad choices they made. So how are people then in the same breath questioning why Lamar was labeled a crackhead when there’s absolutely no space for any other narrative in the black community???
Why is empathy seen as somehow a limited commodity? Why is harshness and punishment seen as the only ways to curb bad behaviour? This is the same mentality that has people justify popping kids to straighten them out and if they are allowed to “act out” then that spells defiance in their teenage years.
I can’t stand when people use a broken and messed up world as reason to not transcend it and evolve past it. It’s all the more reason why we need to change so that we don’t perpetuate the world we were born into!! Tf. Everyone is well-versed in racism and corruption and elitism. And everyone who is corrupt and benefits from corruption isn’t going to change. Nor is change going to come from revamping the structure that arose from malicious intents. Ushering in new values through embodying them and consciously stopping to respond to the control mechanisms of the current system that is essentially a manifestation of the ego that abhors surrendering control, is what will create the momentum that’ll not only weaken the system from within but dissolve it organically. That’s how civilizations rise and fall. That’s the cosmic order and cycle of things. What you give attention to continues to exist. What you take back your focus and beliefs from stops being your reality, period. Reality isn’t a static one dimension. It’s fluctuating, it’s a feedback loop, it’s a mirror and not creator.
