The Spreading Culture and Black Lives Matter

Updated on August 23, 2018

Politico-Socio issues stay ever with us. Gain perspective deciding if these words resonate with your understanding and thinking.

Such beauty can be found in it. Inspiration can come from the good in it. It is Urban Black culture. Urban Black culture is not the only Black culture there is. It is the most popular by far. The religious culture of many Black Americans does not make it to Hollywood or the news media like Urban Black culture. Sure, Tyler Perry has made some inroads into the Urban culture of America infusing it with tidbits of religious and moral insights. The reality of the insignificance of that impact is humbling and humiliating.

Much of the world thinks of Black American culture as one big block party where everyone is smoking marijuana. Is Black culture in America all about self-medication? Mainstream American culture is depicted as a self-medicating culture. Alcohol. An entire generation of people is growing up on social media exchanging ideas about what it is to be Black. How many of those influenced are getting enough information to know that Black lives matter enough to show that there is cultural diversity in the Black American culture?


What's in a Word?

Now it is acceptable to use profanity. If I want to express myself and the only words I can use are profane then I am glorified and paid millions. It is not unique to the Black community, but it is what helps to promote the culture that destroys it.

A loose tongue is the beginning of the destruction of morals. The mouth can set the world on fire or heal it. It is all in the message. Currently, the "Black community's" message to the world is pretty vulgar judging by the majority of media it puts out, at least by the music and movie producers. I put it in quotations because in truth, there is not one large Black community. There are groups of communities of Blacks more accurately. That is another topic, however. Anyway, back to the vulgar uncouthness of speech in Black America. Why should anyone care? Hollywood is doing the same thing to mainstream America.

The same thing is happening to all of the nations. It is just having the most impact immediately on the Black community. Listen, America. The destruction of the Black community means the destruction of America. It is a signal that one community is falling, and being villanized for so doing.

Gansta-ism is spreading like cancer. It has almost consumed the Black cultural influence and is slowly doing the same for the rest of American culture. Luckily, the media's cultural portrayal of Black culture is not reality. Right now it is just a clarion call to the disillusioned youth who come from an indigent disadvantage.

Don't you believe me? Watch TV and movies. Look at what constitutes a hero now. Compare what good is now to what it was even 20 years ago. What used to be evil is now good. What is now good used to be evil.

So, if Black lives don't matter to some, they should matter to all now because non-Black lives are next on the agenda. If 14% of your body is on fire, I am sure you would be alarmed enough to pay extra attention to that part of your body. Well, Black lives are 14% of the American body of people, and cultural evil is burning it up!

Weigh In

Do you agree that music can influence bad behavior and loosen morals over time?

See results

The Solution is Small

You probably think that I might be crazy if you have read this far to reduce the problems that make the BLM movement necessary to something as simple as swearing, huh? I might be. All this bad behavior the kids express, I bet they are not doing it while they are listening to hymns! Not the sane ones anyway!

Be educated, by small and simple things do great things come to pass. Something as small as using clean language can change the brain's chemistry and promote positive attitudes.

There is no guarantee for every person, but the majority of people can expect a personality adjustment in the positive direction as he or she listens to clean music and speaks with a clean tongue. Edited music does not work. You just say the profanity in your head if you have ever heard the songs.

How does this help Black lives to matter? It is a long-term solution. It takes a single generation to change a culture. The culture changes and people start to view the group of people differently. If the people are considered respectful, their lives that already matter are treated with the same respect as other lives that matter.

Intelligent Women make God-like Mothers

Black Women, take control of your bodies and stop needing a man to validate you!

Look, life without morals is the result of a bad society. Sleeping with every Tom, Dick, Harry or every Dayquawn, Tyrone, and Desmond will not bring you happiness. Say no to the man more than yes. Require him to put a ring on it rather than a condom in it. Control your own appetites. Stop having kids so that you can have somebody to love you. It is not fair to the kids or the men that provided them for you. It is not fair to society when it has to discipline them for you because you are alone and cannot do the job naturally meant for two people, namely a mother and a father. For heaven's sake go back to church!

Most Black mothers have children by multiple fathers. What kind of hell is this? I am sure when God gave the command to save sex only in legal marriage He was considering the horrible lives these Black youths go through without it. This goes for all fatherless youth, but we are talking specifically about the Black ones here. 75% of Black families are fatherless in one estimate!!!

Black lives do matter. It is terribly unfair for children to have four siblings and only the mother is the common parent. That is a reality for many Blacks and others. It is a trend that will destroy this country. The warning signs are showing in the most vulnerable segment of society, the Black communities.

p.s. If you don't have this problem then I am not talking to you! However, it is affecting you.

Approximately 75% of Black families are fatherless in one estimate!!!


How does this help Black lives matter? The women respect themselves and carry themselves in such a manner. They do not use sex as a gift to men, but as the way God intended for families to come into the world. The kids grow up in whole families with both parents and have a better chance of avoiding criminal behavior. It is what is right now. It can be something different tomorrow.


It is the small things that destroy because we forget to pay attention.

It is the small things that build. All good things come in pieces at a time.
