Theme Message Music-A Tribe Called Quest: We The People
Greetings! It is nice to be back to blog about different topics as real-life subjects hit or move me to do such, awareness with exposure is a different kind of “support” for conscious elevation but yet in a unique kind of way.
“if the shoe does not fit, do not wear it. One can not be insulted unless they can internally or mentally identify–do not wear a shoe that does not fit”
A Real-Life Real Truth Perspective: This music video clearly is a message for how some may feel about others that do not share their interests, thoughts, looks, or ideas. If one thinks or believes that there are individuals that do not take a disliking to someone else based on how they look, what they believe, or the lifestyle that one may choose then I would say that the person may be truly delusional. I once put a question on social media that asked how would one know if a person is racist and I remember someone saying “their actions” and or the lack to take action, even though many can mask actions by pretending to not be a certain way yet feel the total opposite in their heart. I would also say what are their conversations, who do they talk to most of the time, and if they are diverse in their dealings with others. I have learned that many of us can be biased from time to time but to have hatred of a person that one may not know or have never dealt with is totally different. Many of us can be one way at work due to tolerance and be entirely different once we are home and around people that may really know who we are. I have seen individuals change once outside of the workplace with people that may not look like them as if they never knew them especially if they are around most of their kind. A student once told me that when she started attending a school that was of a majority population that looked entirely different than what she did, the students told her that they would now have to change their conversations because she was there as if she was at fault for being who she was or what she looked like. I have a love for integrated desegregated schools because it allows a child to be influenced by their experiences of others that may look different than themselves as opposed to only what maybe they were taught. True experiences can give a realistic depiction of someone else rather than what the media may try to tell concerning that group of people. Self-acceptance may also have a lot to do with one’s ability to accept others and it appears that sometimes hatred of someone else because of how they look, what they think, what they believe or the lifestyle they may choose can just be an internal issue that may require a lot of work mentally.
