In January, I decided that I needed to step it up a notch or two regarding limiting my exposure to mainstream media. This includes, te-LIE-vision, some websites and blogs (i.e., black celebrity gossip sites), the news (not watching too much, just enough to know what’s going on), radio (been successful with this in the last year), magazine articles, and other forms of mass media. I will be doing more screening on what I watch, read, and listen to. I’m doing this because I have been finding myself getting quite angry A LOT in the last year or so over the constant bombardment of white supremacist, anti-black propaganda that is flooding the radio and t.v. airwaves and other media outlets. It is never-ending and has gotten worse in the last 8-9 years. I need to do more of this to protect my physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional health. I know that I will not be able to shield myself from everything negative because that is almost impossible because WHITE SUPREMACY (RACISM) IS EVERYWHERE!, but fortunately I can limit and control my consumption of it.
Te-LIE-vision, radio (esp., hip hop, r&b stations), magazines, social media, and other forms of media are chocked full of cursing, anti-blackness, homosexuality, misogynior (anti-black misogyny), interracial dating, marriage, and procreation propaganda, black-on-black violence, houseniggering, white ass kissing, white supremacist (anti-black) thought, cooning, buffoonery, and other negative slave thoughts and behaviors encouraging the Black masses to aid and abet in our own MAAFA (great destruction). Black insanity and dysfunction is presented as normal and many of us don’t have (or use) our GOD GIVEN MELANIN THIRD EYE SENSES to see it. When more aware brothers and sisters warn many Black People about the amount of negative Black Insanity-type media polluting the media and how much we’re consuming it’s taken lightly as “just entertainment.” White supremacist programming is designed to keep the Black Inferiority/White Superiority myth alive and well and too many fall for it hook, line, and sinker.
Many people report in various discussion forums and blogs that limiting their media exposure or just eliminating t.v and radio all together has given them a peace of mind from if not all at least some of the insanity that is white supremacy (racism) terrorism. As an aware Black Woman all of the white Supremacy (racism) terrorism angers me because I am able to see what some Black People are not able to or don’t want to see. Therefore, making me angry A LOT. What goes into our minds is just as important as what goes into our bodies. I will strive to nurture my mind with as much positive media as possible cause I need to stay sane in the midst of insanity.
