Are blacks mad that “racist” don’t want their money?… Or does it show a bigger problem the black community faces?…

In my hometown of Riviera Beach, Fl black promoters legally booked a beachfront venue to hold their own “independence” celebration. The significance of this is that if you were to Google “Riviera Beach, FL” the first paragraph of the city’s Wikipedia explains the city as such…

This is Wikipedia’s way of describing the city…

So a beachfront celebration makes sense here right? Well, like in most places the people with the money have confiscated the beaches. And unfortunately for the predominant population, that is not them… 

Hence, the dilemma…

Once you scroll past Riviera Beach’s Wikipedia page you will run into the same issues predominantly black cities have, unfortunately. Issues such as low-income homes, high single-parent household rates, and violence that is sometimes high enough to net us a spot on the Associated Press 50 most dangerous cities… 

So if you want me to be mad about whites along the beach closing their businesses when blacks hold an event there you’ll have to look elsewhere. Because not only do I not care, but as a “pro-black” person I encourage them to do so…

Why would I encourage discrimination?

There are several reasons why I’d encourage them to do so. The main reason is that it allows other black to profit off of other blacks. The black community nationwide has recently seen a tremendous uptick in black-owned businesses. During this event the black community here was upset that the businesses there did not want to serve them and others even closed early.

An example of the signs left in the businesses in the area by a Board of Directors on the island, prejudging the behavior of the people that would be attending the event…

The black community, in general, suffers from what I heard my elders call the “white ice is colder”-syndrome. We normally think that for us to have fun we have to have access to the things that they have and nothing in the world proves that as true. Why not say whatever but then be happy that our people were forced to only do business with us? But yes, we should have uninterrupted and free and clear access to the beach because the predominantly black city owns the beach. Or at least I would assume. Lol…

This is an excerpt from a post made by one of the DJs and co-promoters of the event. Harassment over public property is wrong on all levels…

So if the event’s host did all his paperwork right then no one should have harassed him before the event and their actions should have been judged by the event. Anything else is wrong by their own laws. But who cares if these “racists” people maybe, but definitely prejudice and bigoted people get our money from patronizing their businesses? I can tell you I’m happy it happened and I even count it as a win for us as a people. Thank you “racist” for helping us not help to keep you open longer!…

Another reason is do you really want racist people fixing your food? We’ll do you? Because even if they make your food in front of you nothing is stopping them from giving us the oldest stuff or the lowest quality stuff. And ultimately we know in today’s society people are inventive. 

Many businesses set harder rules and closed their amenities to the public for the event, which means they too assumed the worst…

And the last reason I’ll list is why would you want to share in a celebration with people that dislike you? I don’t want to share in a celebration with people that don’t want to be there. Don’t be mad that the haters didn’t show up to the party. We should have laughed at the fact that they hate someone so much that they will not accept money from them…

Laugh?!?…

Yes, in current times we should laugh. But we should also take note of this as something that could become a bigger issue and possibly a danger if society faces hardship. Does being rich matter at that point, or could racists just refuse your money based on your race during hard times? Is money a false comfort? This is the bigger problem I think it points out to us as a people.

The bigger problem…

Blacks in general control no resources. We are generally consumers and what normally happens during hardship is resources get tight. When resources get tight money not be worth more than bread. People could just say nope I don’t want your money and we know that this is a possibility. Because yea look at what you just read…

In conclusion, should we even show racists that we value their hating ass involvement in our celebrations? Or should we be having a serious discussion about the role of money in our community and just be happy a racist didn’t get some of the little bit that we have as a people left, while it still has value?…
