Black American Mutualist here. I'm not going to explain everything from a black point of view but I'll give a very quick summary on why black people aren't into socialism any longer.
So the problem is during the Reagan and Bush Sr. years is that the black consciousnesses switched from a socialist view into a capitalist view. Black people today think it is successful to become porkies themselves and exploit people than try and benefit everyone.
The black people quote of "I don't care if you gonna gets yours… I'mma get mines." Explains exactly what the black motivations are today.
I'm only 27 but I haven't really looked into it too hard. A lot of the changes to this capitalist view had to do with that a lot of young black athletes, movie stars and etc were finally getting put into the porky positions. Coupled to the fact due to a lower lifespan of black men and that the average black person's life is seen like a rocket. You better enjoy it as fast as you can before it all ends quickly.
Black people as a whole view blacks within the media as leaders regardless of what they represent. That's why we have been divided and conquered even within our own race. Too many different messages and now white porkies don't even have to try too hard to prevent us from organizing like Fred Hampton. Black people are very spooked and are almost as spooked as Holla Forums. I don't have the solutions but I keep remembering that scene from the Boondocks with MLK Jr. We have a very long way to go and it start with ourselves. We black people don't even entirely believe Black lives matters.
The reason I don't support BLM is because if we can't convince our own race that our lives matter, then why should we expect any other race to think we matter as well as a whole group.
It's going to take a very long time to fix it but you can't blame Afroplasm from where he is sitting at right now. He'll have to do a lot of reading like I have been doing for months to get himself in a despooked state of mind.
I wish you wouldn't use the word redpill. It doesn't mean anything here. However, I am with you there. Our race thinks capitalism is the path and we've already forgotten that socialism is the only path to unity within the Human Race.
I will say this. Your presence really shows how many people of the socialist view just think we blacks are nothing and that socialism has a very very far way to go if we really want to have humanity united as one.
Keep learning and keep fighting. Just stop being baiting into idpol fights because it solves nothing and then there are too many nazibols and other racists here that want to get under your skin. (Ironic, isn't it.)
Never start throwing insults because that means they have won. Keep arguing with facts.
I will tell you this, I'd find a form of socialism that you would personally like to be within and then start applying that to how we can fix the black race and get ourselves back on track.
I choose mutualism because I think markets can be a useful thing to use and I see Proudon as a better theorist than Marx. I'm way too Anarchist to accept communism, thus I found mutualism to be the best place for myself learn from.
Good luck my fellow black socialist.
