Division & Distractions

Black vs white,

LGBT vs Straight,

Black vs Gay,

Democrat vs Republican,

White vs Hispanic,

Men vs Women

In America there are many divisions and distractions. While you’re at each others throats and on your electronic devices, Corporations are making huge amounts of profit, off of you.

Sex, violence, and keeping people at odds sell like nobodies business. Even in the most simplistic of ways. For example, sports is divisive by its very nature. Team or solo, you are taught to pick a side. It should be all fun and games, but how many arguments have you witnessed, or even been in over people you don’t even know?

Politics are in the same boat. It’s a sophisticated distraction.

We get so caught up in the back and forth banter from slicked tongued salesman, that we  often end up not holding those who are supposed to work for us, up on their end of the bargain.

Next thing we know, we get the jagged end of the stick, and they left with the whole damn tree.

This isn’t a MLK style plea, to all get along, this is a Malcolm X style, wake your ass up and pay attention.

You’ve been had! You’ve been took! Hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led astray! Run amok!

Remember the slogan, “What’s in your wallet?” The real question should of been what’s in your savings?

Wait, am I being to real right now? Ok let me recenter you:

There you are. All better?

In the new world of instant gratification, and short attention spans, this may be the best time for any professional swindler. ✌🏿

  1. Good stuff Brother Dave. While we fighting each other, our masters are laughing their way to the bank. Facebook is free because we are the product … they sell our information to advertisers. We give them our information so they can exploit us better, in the name of “individual expression” of course

    • We race to give them our info too. Same with downloading apps. They want our personal info, and “control” over it as well when we agree to their terms and conditions. To put it plainly, they have us by the balls, really because we let them. Because we want to use their “free” “cool” and “useful” apps.

  2. If this ain’t the truth. Providing us with the perfect amount of distraction to keep enough money flowing in their direction. Sometimes it feels like we’re being used in social experiments. How humiliating it would feel if we were to observe ourselves from an aerial view smh.
