merely adopted it

Mood: “I need to write that really good shit that goes unappreciated while I’m alive and then gets blows up when I’m dead so I can bask in posthumous glory 🔥”

Reality: “Ah you think writer’s block is your enemy? You merely adopted the block. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn’t see my own writing until I was already dead, by then it was nothing to me but more misery”

As a black man, to hear another black person talking about cultural appropriation, I cringe and I cringe hard.

Let me explain why.

And by all means, if you think I’m wrong, call me out on it.

I can appreciate black people being interested in African culture and wanting to even claim it, but ffs you’re AMERICAN. You’re not from Africa, your parents aren’t, your grandparents aren’t and more than likely your great-grandparents and they’re parents aren’t. You’re so fucking far removed from Africa, you literally have no right to be complaining that your culture is being stolen and that everyone doing it is racist, because you have no African culture. It was not imparted to you from a proceeding generation. It was something you merely adopted as your own. Taking a bunch of classes about African history and culture doesn’t make it yours and it doesn’t make you a fucking expert. To be quite honest, unless you can actually trace what part of Africa your blood line descends from, you’re basically talking out your ass. All you people don’t descend from Egypt, which for some reason seems to be the main part of Africa that is brought up in these discussions. Hell most of you ain’t even been to Africa, let alone out of the country, or your respective state. The most culture you have is either the ghetto or the suburbs.

And again, correct me if I’m wrong, please, because what I’m about to say here is really crazy. I know people who are direct descendents from Africa, interacted with them on a daily basis, and a lot of them bounce back and forth between here and there quite frequently and everyone of them said that African-Americans are hated in Africa. One told me becuase we aren’t pure blood African (could be b.s. but it could be true). The others told me it was because we have a sense of self-entitlement, which is true about American’s in general. You’re religiously trying to protect a culture from outside invasion and use, and it possible that the very descendents of that culture hates your guts.

I said all that to say this. Shut the fuck up. Your arguments about appropriation are bullshit.

If you believe they aren’t, then tell me. I want to hear them. Message me privately or respond here, I don’t care. Just be prepared defend your position cause I’m gonna try to poke holes in it.

I was close to finding him. I can feel it. My father is hear. I just need to make a few more calculations, then I could find him. Mitth’raw’nuruodo. I MUST find my biological father at all costs. He’s the only one in my family that I respect. The rest of the mere adoptives are useless to me. ONLY my father has the answers.

I feel a slit bump on my left arm as I see a young girl in a cadet uniform.   

  • Non-swimmer: OMG I love going to the pool to swim
  • Swimmer: You think the pool is your ally but you merely adopted the chlorine. I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't do dryland until I was a MAN, and by then it was nothing to me but torture.
