All Black people love conspiracies. Conspiracies that blame all Black problems on White people flourish in the Black community, especially conspiracies that date back hundreds of years, even thousands. Believing that White people stole numerous Black inventions; that many famous "White" people were actually Black - from Beethoven to Plato to Babe Ruth - and that White people are actually "ice people".
Black people believe that crack was introduced to their community to kill them and keep them down; that AIDS was invented to kill them all off, due to their high fecundity rates; and that gangsta rap was created to convince Blacks to kill each other.
Rev. Jeremiah Wright, pastor to the Obama's for 20 years, said, regarding the treatment of Blacks:
"The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing 'God Bless America.' No, no, no, God damn America, that's in the Bible for killing innocent people... God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme."Black people have a natural distrust and aversion of government, and believe that anything that originates from Washington, or from the media, or from the mouth of any White person is only approved to bring about their collective destruction by THE MAN.
The Man is:
"The Man" is a slang phrase that refers to the government, leaders of large corporations, and other authority figures in general, rather than a specific person. "The Man" is colloquially defined as the figurative person who controls the world."All of the above mentioned plagues befallen the Black community are byproducts of "The Man" and his iniquitous imagination.Black people believe that "The Man" is behind all of his failures and all of his faults. He has kept Black people from creating flourishing nations in Africa; kept the alarmingly high Black illegitimate birthrate from falling; denied Black people a true golfing star and ensured Black scholastic achievement to be a mere dream.
(Watch Dave Chappelle discuss "The Man" and the numerous conspiracies that continue to destroy the Black community).
With the election of Barack Obama to the highest office of government, many Black people thought "The Man" was off their back, but Black people will recall he is only half-Black.
No, to Black people everywhere, "The Man" is sitting in an opulent high-rise office, surrounded by numerous - "The Man" - in training. He is sipping a glass of wine, while enjoying a cigar. His feet are propped up as he discusses the nefarious plans to subdue the Black man and all his recent gains. As he peers out the window of a 100-story building, the only thoughts "The Man" has, is how to acquire more power, and how to keep the Black man down.
Black people fear the rise of "The Man" and his omnipresent power is a constant reminder to Black people that they won't be free of his maniacal reign until all White people are removed from any position of power.
