Need to vent this somewhere, so whatever on Poal seemed like the best place.
Started watching Black Panther. I knew what to expect. Not surprised at all by what I saw. Watched to see just how bad it was. What DID surprise me is the thought process that did a few cycles in the background while I watched, which I will share.
Along with the myriad of other things we've been indoctrinated to or plain lied to about (6 gorillion, fluoridated water for teeth, food pyramid etc etc) I just started thinking how much I fucking HATE Africa. Not blacks, not the stupid Wakanda story. Just the whole fucking continent. Why?
Growing up in the 70s / 80s, I was indoctrinated along with many who were left unattended in front of a TV with cunt face Sally Struthers (Hey the Archie Bunker lady!) wearing her high end fucking boots and crying telling us we need to feed those poor africans. Then the pics of flies buzzing around little skinny kids. Damn, who wouldn't feel bad for them?
I remember getting the little cardboard DIY UNICEF box to collect money for those fucks at Halloween, reducing my overall max carry capacity for candy by hauling all the change around. And why did I do that? Because of those poor kids with flies on them and Sally fucking Struthers.
But we saved them right? Nope. Now it's time for all our favorite music stars to all get together in this unheard of event - USA For Africa. I mean, that event was fucking off the charts. We are the World was #1 forever. They raised a shitload of money and awareness. There is not 1 kid I grew up with who did not know about poor kids with no food and covered in flies.
That was the early / mid 80s. We are talking almost FORTY years ago.
Not many years later our soldiers DIED for those fucks in Mogadishu.
So this thought process was running while watching glorious Wakanda. Damn, we've been fucking "saving" these assholes for at least FORTY years that I know about, probably longer. What has changed? Then of course I start recalling the myriad stories about mud huts vs. bridges built by Westerners, then thinking about land grabs in SA.
The whole thing is really fucked. We were indoctrinated by people we, as kids, knew, loved on some level and trusted on some level that it was our responsibility to help those fuckers. But outside of church or home, no one ever told or taught us to take care of the homeless, the PTSD vets, the single mothers barely scraping by. No! We were taught to look down on them! This is America dammit. If you have nothing, it's you own damn fault. But don't forget the poor starving African kids.
Anyways, just made me fucking angry. This indoctrination bullshit. Demoncrat or Republican alike, doesn't matter. They've all supported it. So much fucking lying in the "greatest" country in the world and the "land of the free".
So watching that shit show of a movie, just made me angry. Not at the stupid blacks pretending to be high tech whatevers. They actually do not deserve the blame do they? Have they changed in forty years? Nope. Are they doing something unexpected? Not at all. Pretty much chugging along same as ALWAYS.
What made me angry is the realization that I was successfully indoctrinated at a very young age and bought -- hook, line and sinker what the media and hollyjews were selling.
I woke up of course. But how many do?
And now look where we are. Whites literally = the devil or Hitler unless you are a white chick having a mixed baby.
I grew up honestly not racist. Still don't consider myself to be. My friends told some nigger jokes back then that I laughed at, but black or white did not really matter to me. Even now, I see the reality of very low IQ vs moderate to high IQ. Seriously, what do you expect from them? That's like hating a dog for licking his balls. Makes almost no sense.
I said earlier I just hate all of Africa. That is true. Much like I hate rats or cockroaches or stray animals in my yard. I don't like that they are dumb and rely on the world to feed and protect them. I don't like that they are to be considered as equals in every way, yet they are obviously not. So while I DO think we as humans have some responsibility to other humans, I don't think we need to keep propping them up to try and get them on our level. I don't like that I ever bought into the lies.
I am mostly seething with anger for those who created and then propagated the lies that many I grew up with hold dear as "base truths". How much more the kids of today who believe in climate change and gender fluidity? And on and on.
Made me feel a bit angry and hopeless. So had to let it out. I know most of you will understand. Could not share this with most people I know in real life. They would get "the look" and slowly back away.
Thanks for reading. Feels a little better to at least let some of it out.
