But why play the #afrocard when you don't have to if you're really trying to help? Is the afro the protest when you can't #TakeAKnee? I don't know if that's helpful at all. If you're a wise woman you learn to style your hair according to the things you want to accomplish. It's lovely to just not care and do whatever you want. But most of us haven't had that luxury, and the whole point of the protest is to help those who have been oppressed, right? I mean whose attention are you trying to get? Just angry black folk or those who have the power to make things better for all? #TheBench #KaepernickAdvice
Maybe if he went all natural (for him) his message would be more widely received. In my observation, a mixed race man with soft wavy hair can speak to some folk about things that a black man with an afro can not. Sometimes standing out from the crowd and identifying with authority is how you make change for the underdog. For most normal humans (non ASD) and those with the need to belong, it's easier to just hang out with the crowd and keep them stirred up. But is that really helping or just keeping you in a position of popularity with the masses? This lesson can be applied across societies, industries, relationships and all human interaction.
#HypeMen and sensationalists like to point out that throughout history, it's protest that has brought about change. Wrong! That just gets attention and sometimes goes on for years with scores of lives and property lost. It's used wisely as a bargaining chip, just like going on strike. Ultimately somebody has to sit down at a table and have intelligent conversation to make and affect change. Real #changeagents try that first and then protested so they can say they tried, and so the message never gets lost until the demands are met. #JS What's the real goal here and are we going about it the most effective way?
