Why do Black Americans resent intelligence in another Black American?
Posted By: Harry Watley on September 13, 2009 |
Black Americans should know that intelligence is a gifted talent.
For instance, Muhammad Ali was a gifted talented boxer. Dr. George W. Carver was a gifted scientist. President Obama is a gifted orator.
However, I have experience intelligently gifted children and were made to feel cursed by their own kind because they were smarter. These gifted children would soon act dumb in class just to be accepted by the less intelligent children.
Adults Blacks are the same. They would put down another Black person who was smarter than they are. They would criticize the person; make the person not feel welcome, and would say things as who Harry thinks he is?
Is not intelligent an asset to our race that would help to improve and advance our race? By the same token, if you had a mind to exterminate those of us who are intelligently gifted, would this not be savage which would keep our race in the dark ages while all the other races are advancing?
Lastly, who among us would not want our race to be sovereign free on a portion of this continent that we could call our very own country with borders to pursue Life, Liberty, Happiness and Prosperity in our own way? Now, would having sovereignty be something of intelligence to have?
Tell me what you think.

President Obama is a Black American. Every one must have a race before they could be anything else.

I would venture to say...Unintelligent Black People don't appreciate Intelligent Black People. I too, have also experienced the "He think he knows everything syndrome!" The few individuals that do not understand...I teach. The others, I ignore! They do not wish to be enlightened...they wish to be vindictive complainers that need...desire to be viewed as above everyone else while making others feel as though they havae committed a mortal sin for desiring enlightenment. It's heart breaking.
Peace and Love,
