Question: why are these memes with pictures of monkeys depicting ppl of color so funny and popular among black ppl? These aren’t funny and are down right racists! I remember clearly at the young age of 5 my mother showing me pictures of “coon cartoons” I remembered I laughed at the pictures bc they appeared to be funny but my laughter was cut very short by my mother who scolded me and told me this is not funny! She told me, This is how black people were viewed, not as humans but as animals who could be treated as such. I was kind of confused at that moment but her words never left me. And to this day I can’t even fathom why in the world would black ppl now in this day and age make fun of and dehumanize our own selves with these memes! I love to laugh, especially at a hilarious meme…but I would never ever in my life laugh at a monkey meme nor repost it! I mean we live in a world where we have come so far but we still have a long way to go when it comes to race! I have been following the Mike Brown situation and the comments a lot of ppl are leaving are ignorant & hurtful! It saddens my heart to see so many hurtful things being said about the victim as well as the protestors and even the black community as a whole! I could go on but I’m going to leave it at that! So many want to see change but the change starts from within!

True words to live by…you try to help the ppl you love bc you know and understand they didn’t have a normal upbringing, parents weren’t there, let downs and heartbreaks, ect. But if I’m doing everything I can to be there for you, give advice, pray for you and whatnot and all you do in return is show ungratefulness then what else can I do 😕 ??? Nothing but pray The Lord give you wisdom ! #growup #getpastyourself #getpastwhatsholdingyouback time to be an adult now #ihaveagenuineheart #soifiloveyou #believeitsreal
