June 27th. Your Self-Fulfilling Prophesy
The BET Awards honoring achievements of Black Artists in Music, TV & Movies is tonight June 28th on the BET Network
Normally, I would take the day off & not post anything on the 28th of any month, but this falls under the category "If you See Something, Say Something."
In the National Conversation respecting Race Relations it is necessary for each & every person to do their part.
Yesterday just before I logged out & turned off my computer, I saw this on Social Media:
Lyrics Excerpt from DJ Screw's June 27th:

This is NOT something to be celebrated.
In fact, it is a SHAMEFUL DISGRACE.
Profanity such as this is Vile, Disgusting & Obscene on its' face.
As such, Profanity is NOT protect by the 1st Amendment guarantee to Free Speech. In fact is is PROHIBITED:
Federal Communications Commission on www.fcc.gov regarding Obscene, Indecent and Profane Broadcasts:
So where do I even begin to unpack everything that's wrong with Rap Music???
Let's start here with the use of the "N-word."
Thinking about these DJ Screw Lyrics who is using the "N-word?"
Me or you???
Then there's the "B-Word."
Could the word BITCH be considered a Racial SLUR???
Name Calling aside, why would anyone want to SPEAK THAT OVER THEMSELVES???
I have been following several Thought Leaders for several years now who speak on the "Secret Law of Attraction," people like Lisa Nichols, Jack Canfield, Zig Ziglar & became aware of Houston's own Marianne Williamson when she tossed her hat into the ring as a Presidential Candidate back in 2019.
This has become an entire Industry in & of itself.
This has nothing to do with Physical or Romantic Attraction.
The entire premise of the Secret Law of Attraction is that we Manifest our Thoughts.
We become what we think about.
Why in the world would young Black Rappers speak such garbage over themselves???
Why would they call themselves "Gangsta???"
If we become our thoughts, if we become what we think about, why would you speak this over yourself & your Community?
Listen to some of the Church Pastors speaking about "The Power of 'I Am'."
"I am smart."
"I am Healthy."
"I am Prosesperous."
"I am Nice."
Rappers should speak good thoughts about themselves.
We do have Free Speech.
We CAN say whatever we want.
We should think about what we are releasing out into the World because the Universe is Listening.
