Who are you going to call?

In Knowledge, Truth, Wisdom by Cliff Green11 Comments

With everything that is going on in today’s world it amazes me that a lot of people still refuse to face reality. I have noticed that people are more concerned about actors, musicians and athletes than they are their own family. They call their names more than the people that they know in real life. This isn’t to throw shade at those people, but how come we do not realize that in the court of a king those people would be nothing more than jesters. They are entertainers. Entertainment has been used since the beginning of time to keep the masses from focusing on things that truly matter!

I am saying this because today literally today, I finally watched the Jesse Williams speech that you all were loving so much. No shade towards him because it was a good speech, but back to the first paragraph of these people being entertainers. I’m guessing since someone said on TV what I and others have been saying for years, the same message now gets high acclaim.

I hear people screaming that we need to support black-owned businesses. We need to do this black and do that black. But when the people who you KNOW are doing that stuff, where is all the support that you were screaming about at? I have a site, this site, where I literally have put out enough knowledge to wake the people up, but is the support there? Am I asking for monetary support? No! I am asking these things because if people who know me and what I am about can’t support me; how are they suppose to support other black people who they don’t even know? This goes for all the others out there that are doing the same thing.

We are to caught up on worrying about entertainers instead of worrying about the people who truly matter. When you needed that helping hand, who did you call? Me or the person on TV? I’m just saying.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting Wyzedome! A wish common sense was actually common. There is so much work to do. But no problem, keep up the good work!

  2. It’s frustrating to deal with entertainment-focused people. I wish I was forewarned long ago. I could have saved myself a lot of unease.

    You are always spot on with your wisdom, much appreciated. I want to repeat this phrase: “When you needed that helping hand, who did you call? Me or the person on TV?”

      I appreciate you stopping by Onitaset! It is so frustrating listening to people go on and on about people with whom they never crossed paths with. I wish I would have figured this out a long time ago as well. All we can do is plant a seed and hope that it blossoms.

  3. I definitely agree with you on people putting more focus on entertainers and everything else in that category but at the same time those people like Jesse Williams can reach more people then those of us who aren’t in the “lime light”. Being the ones in a smaller light we need to support and challenge those like him more because in turn it helps us too. We all have roles in our overcoming of the systemic racism in this country. By him and others speaking it can make people seek information. Which means coming to your sight and the likes of others. Trust me you know I know its frustrating but keep doing what you’re doing and be patient. The time is most definitely coming. People are waking up. Just think there are people who won’t hear his speech but will read your articles. We have to support each other on all levels. Keep grinding and keep supporting. Sometimes you can’t worry about the messenger just worry about the message.

      You know me, I’m not worried about them. I do not pay any of them attention (not in a bad way, I just don’t watch television) that’s why I am just now seeing the speech. I wish more of them would speak up and use their platform. But there goes the conundrum. They are here to entertain. WE need to quit looking for saviors (celebrities) to do or say what needs to be said and done.

      It’s a sad time that we are living in. But I can still see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!

      1. I’m glad you see the light at the end of the tunnel as I am inclined to think that there is steep drop into the confines of the abyss.

          I am laughing but to be honest, you’re right. I was trying to be positive. But as the days go by the more I realize how far gone most people are. Having an intellectual conversation with a someone comes far and few in between! But people like you and the others that I have found through blogging, give me that little spark of light that keeps my hopes up.
