Why Do We Support Black Celebrities Who Destroy Black Communities?

One of the most destructive forces that has been plaguing the black community over the last 20 years has been the poison that is fed to us by our own people.

When the 90’s hit, and black people started so-called making it into the white mainstream of media, instead of using their celebrity to uplift and inspire our people to become better — the majority of them did the total opposite. They used their celebrity to inspire our people to do drugs, live whorish, fall in love with money, be selfish and sell out your people for the white’s man’s power.

Of course there have been exceptions by black celebs who didn’t sell out and used their platforms to take a stand for truth and righteousness like Lauryn Hill, Ray Lewis, Tavis Smiley, Eric Thomas, Cicely Tyson, etc. but the vast majority of what black celebs has put out there for us to consume over the last 20 plus years has been poison.

The Music Industry

For example, what have mainstream rappers been promoting to us through their lyrics for over the last 2 decades? The glorification of selling crack to our people, having sex with multiple partners, getting revenge and murdering on our own people, loving material things over spiritual things, and attaining riches by any means necessary. These are the types of messages that are in the lyrics of almost every rap or hip song today and these are the lyrics that our youth and young adults are listening to over and over again almost everyday of their lives.

By consuming this poison into their minds, the messages began to set up roots inside their soul and they start to become what they hear. As a result, our communities are a direct reflection of what Hip Hop and Rap promotes.

The Movie & TV Industry

Moving right along to the next form of media that many of our people have platforms on today, what have mainstream actors been promoting to us through their roles in the moves and TV shows over the last 2 decades? The acceptance of Adultery, Infidelity, Promiscuity, Homosexuality, Pornography, Cross-Dressing, Interracial Marriages, Drug Abuse, and Idol Worship. These are the types of characteristics and lifestyles of the roles that most black actors play in movies and television and our young people love to watch these types of movies imagery.

And just as music is programming our minds to live profane and immoral, so are the movies and tv shows we watch. Consequently, the majority of black people today carry the same characteristics that black actors play on films and tv.

The Correlation Between Black Celebs & The Black Community

So far, I have given you a small glimpse of how our people are planting poison into our communities through music and visual media. Now, let’s go deeper and get the specifics of how this is actually happening.

Black Celeb’s Road To Prominence:

  • Martin Lawrence rose to mainstream stardom by playing the female role of Big Momma.
  • Will Smith got his big break by kissing another man in his first film.
  • Halle Berry wins an Oscar for playing the role of a white man’s hore in Monster’s Ball.
  • Snoop Dawg rose to the top of the rap game by selling his soul to the Devil, literally.
  • Lil Kim becomes one of the hottest female rappers of the 90’s by exposing her body for all to see and promoting sexual promiscuity in her lyrics.
  • Rapper 50 Cent rose to fame with his first mainstream album, which taught young brothers in the hood to become drug dealers and kill each other to make it to the top.
  • Flavor Flav becomes relevant again by exploiting black women on his hit reality tv show.

The Next Generation Follows Suit:

  • Tyler Perry rises to fame by wearing a dress, lipstick, and a wig.
  • Jussie Smollett becomes a star by kissing other men on the hit show Empire.
  • Kerry Washington becomes a household name by playing the role of a white man’s hore on Scandal.
  • Kayne West rises to rap stardom after selling his soul to the Devil.
  • Nicki Minaj rises to fame by being the modern day version of Lil Kim, exposing her body for all to see and promoting promiscuity in her lyrics.
  • Wacka Flocka became a star rapper doing exactly what 50 Cent did; glorifying the life of drug dealing, murder, using women, and getting rich by any means necessary.
  • Peter Gunz becomes relevant again by exploiting his women on reality tv.

The Effects on The Black Community:

  • There is an epidemic of young black men who dress like women today in schools and colleges.
  • There is more promotion of black male homosexuality in the media today than ever before.
  • There are more black women giving their bodies up to white men in movies and in real life than ever before.
  • Well over 50% of the rap game has sold their soul to the Devil for riches and a come up in society.
  • The majority of young sistas in the hood today who listen to Hip Hop are promiscuous and over 72% of black women are unwed single parents.
  • The majority of young brothas in hood today who listen to hip hop have a reprobate mind and make up over 60% of the prison population.
  • The majority of reality tv shows that have a black cast exploit black women for their own personal gain.

STOP Supporting Our Demise

The reason why this poison has been able to set generational roots into our communities is because we as people support it. The media (film, tv, internet, music, news, etc.) dictates the culture and every time we watch any type of foolishness on tv, go see a movie that promotes it, buy their music or attend their concerts — we are supporting it.

And by supporting it, not only are we supporting the destruction of our people, but we are also making the entertainers who feed us this poison rich. The only reason why artists and actors are well known and rich in the first place is because we the consumers have made them rich and famous through our support. Therefore since we have the power to make their careers, we only have the power to brake their careers.

So if you’re like me and are sick and tired of seeing our people sink lower and lower in morality then let’s stop supporting the people who feed this poison into our communities through unrighteous entertainment. Of corse not all entertainment is bad for us, but the majority of what’s been produced today is… and if we truly care about the souls of our people, we will stop tuning into this nonsense.

After all, when was the last time someone like Jay-Z, Beyonce, Terrance Howard, or Kerry Washington used their platform to speak up about the racial injustices going on against our people? I’ll tell you when… NEVER! Yet, although they do nothing for us, they are all rich and famous because of us. How ironic is that?

This is why I no longer support most black celebrities because most of them don’t support us. And you would do well to adopt the same mentality. I mean why would you continue to support celebrities (buy their music, watch their shows, attend their concerts and films) that not only doesn’t support the black community, but also feeds us poison?

I’ll let you answer that. Feel free to leave your comments below.

    I agree with you on this article my brother. We are a long way from where we were in the 60’s and 70’s and I guess that’s where we need to get back to. I do believe that we are headed back in that direction but I believe that it is going to be much worse than before. With the articles and books that you are putting out here is truly raising our awareness and that is what we need! For that I thank you.

      Shalom my brotha! Thanks for the kind words; I appreciate the encouragement. But we all have something to offer in regards to bettering our people: I’m just playing my part!

  • Joe Whitfield Jr December 5, 2015, 2:52 pm

    I fully agree with the words that were written in this column and the word says ,my people are destroyed by lack of knowledge. Continue to bring truth to all of us my brother!

    • Maurice Lindsay December 5, 2015, 3:47 pm

      Shalom brotha! Thanks for your comments. I really appreciate the kind words.

  • Tony September 11, 2016, 6:26 am

    I totally agree with you. I see television roles where black man are playing thug, adulterous men, pimps, etc. Nothing positive. The some in porn. Now there are black people, including black celebrities supporting racist trash like Trump and saying people like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton don’t care about black people. That they disrespect Martin Luther King. Black celebrities make me so mad, that I have little to no respect for them.

    • Maurice Lindsay September 11, 2016, 11:42 am

      Shalom Tony! I feel you man. It upsets me too. But the reason our people support them is because we are so in love with money, fame, and American Culture and that is what most black celebs promote. Therefore, they support them because they themselves are striving to achieve the same lifestyle. It’s a sad cycle.

  • Jeremy September 11, 2016, 11:52 pm

    Everytime we take a step forward, there’s always someone taking us two, three or four steps backwards. Black celebrities and rappers are some of those people.They make me a shame of being black. Now I see a lot of them supporting that kindergarten drop out Trump who is actually is talking about nothing accept some stupid wall. The same man endorsed by the KKK and other white power groups. Seeing Kanye West marrying Kim Kardashian and Shaq being a modern day coon. Alot of black television show using the same tired formula to make a hit show, bring in the stereotypes. When does the madness stop? We need to stop all the Bullshit. I already lost respect for black celebrities and the community. I’m sorry if I sound like an Oreo, but what I have seen over the years is burning me up.

  • quakerlife September 12, 2016, 11:58 am

    It is sad white people are now embracing this aspect of black culture. It used to be pretty small, even in the early 2000s, however with the popularity of hip hop and modern RNB rising, with white and black mainstream artists integrating themselves with one another, white people have found an avenue to enter such materialistic culture. Anyways, it’s clear that this might be done on purpose to beat down the black communities. But, now it’s not just the black communities, but all of America that is being demoralized, beaten down, embracing ignorance and defiling values.

    We live in the age of ‘ugly’, here in the USA.

    • Maurice Lindsay September 12, 2016, 4:23 pm

      I agree.

    • Jeremy September 12, 2016, 6:20 pm

      I totally agree you.

  • Jonas Sobe December 22, 2016, 6:55 am

    I fully agree with you on this article, but what I don’t really understand is when you mention “black Celebrities”, does that imply we should support the white ones ?, I strongly believe that our black brothers are fed this immoral conduct by the these whites, because 99% of time when a black man rises to fame and riches there is a white man behind who instruct and direct that black “puppet”‘s work. So what the whites do is, when it comes to their movies, music and whatever entertainment means they use a ‘clean” slate and send a correct information to their race which is contrary to what they instilled in our “lost” black celebrities. Isn’t re-educating our fellow celebrities about the value of good morals and self-preservation going to alleviate this curse which is falling upon our nation ?.

    • Maurice Lindsay January 6, 2017, 1:04 am

      Shalom Jonas. Yes, re-educating our brothers and sisters in the entertainment industry about the value of good morals could help alleviate the curse upon our people, but the majority of them are not interested in change. Their love of money prevents them from being able to hear the truth about the negative impact they are having on our people. This is why i say we should not support them, because our support of them helps them continue to pollute the minds of our people. However, this does not mean that we should support white celebrities. It just means that we should only support those in our communities that are influencing us to live righteous. Hope this answers your questions.

    • Anonymous January 26, 2017, 12:09 pm

      I don’t think we can just say that the black entertainment community have no morals and values, I’m sure it’s not completely true and I don’t think they need to be re-educated however our goals should be to educated the black community, the youth especially, they are vital to how our race will exist in the future, we want our children and grandchildren and so on to understand that entertainment is just that, it is not meant to be mocked. We must teach them to be leaders and show them how to lead by being the best example. I don’t believe there is a curse among us, at least not by God.

  • Anonymous January 26, 2017, 6:15 am

    I do believe that Black celebrities need to do better as far as help building their communities up. Building apartments and homes for low income families, giving scholarships to help black children with college expenses, promoting back businesses, etc. I believe they owe it to us, to return some of the support we give them. There are some exceptions including way more people than you named. Martin, Will, and Halle Barry were already famous before the projects you named, so this misinformation will call your credibility, however I agree with the message. I can tell that you are very passionate about this article, I myself feel this same passion. I’m only 25 years old and I feel that we should all be in the prairie days because social media, news, music, etc. are defining who we are as people, it’s sad how much technology(“the best thing to have happen to us”) has allowed the media to effect our minds. The zombie apocalypse is here and the virus is technology. Keep this passion, one day the world will awaken, but until then we need leaders to speak out on topics like black celebrities, technology and not enough spirituality.

    Whites are controlled by us ( the power elite) and would never follow our lies if they realized how we use them as cannon fodder and puppets. We used them in the 1840s to kick their Moorish masters out of Europe and have been using them to further our global communist agenda ever since. Be careful Maurice.
