I tried to get my cousin to listen to The Black Philip show today.
I played him a specific time in which Patrice O’neal was on a roll and preaching his “ahead of his time” wisdom about how women view manhood and never giving a man a break to relax and just have his peace. I played it for him not because I wanted him to learn but, more so just to watch him. A test if you will. I watched him “listen” to please me it seems but, after at least two minutes into it, he blocked it out and focused on other things on his phone. He “laughed” and nodded his head at certain parts but, I can tell he really wasn’t listening. He “heard” what was being said but, he was not “listening”.
I knew he would do this but, I wanted to see for myself if maybe all of our conversations that we have been having about women, life, relationships, etc had started to REALLY slip inside of his head. It has to a certain extent but, it really hasn’t SUNK in as far as how messed up the game is. Mainly because he asks questions about:
“How did these women become like this and how can we change them back to normal”
“Yeah this chick wants me. I talked to her and now waiting for the right moment to catch her. What do you think would be a good time?
“She has a man but, I can tell she wants me. Look at this text. All these smiley faces. What do you think that means?
All in all, I believe he still sees women as these “Above human level” people and still has them raised high to GOD like levels. I hear the way him, and the other guys I work with talk about women in great detail and trying to “figure” them out as if they are a puzzle that has and will be solved some day.
Its not just them its a lot of men that I see still having women as these mystery creatures. The answer is right here but, they simply refuse to listen and try to advance their mind. It seems like they WANT to still walk through the forest without a map. They want to still feel the struggle and pain of trying to “solve” this game called “Females and Relationships”. They want to be miserable just to at least feel something it seems like. Ignorance is not only bliss but, its life for these men.
I have tried to help my cousin and others around me when I start dropping some gems that I have learned on sites, experience, and just overall wisdom from getting older but, it just doesn’t TRULY register with them. They will laugh and nod and agree but, I can see in their eyes they are not really hearing me. Because two days later they will have a rookie like question about a text message or, why this (Older) woman wants them to move in with her SO quickly. I get the feeling that they view life as not a game but, this thing that is still mystical-like as if there is a big man in the sky controlling every person, event, and death. They view love and relationships as random instead of stepping outside the box and having a solid game plan. The earplugs are deeply planted inside of their ears and 90’s R&B is playing at extreme levels stuck on a 24 hour playlist.
This knowledge that I have learned is nothing in my opinion without being able to help other men and, to some extent even some women. I understand now that Spiderman quote that goes “With great power comes great responsibility”. I have the knowledge and I am still learning more and more each day. They best way to use this power to its full potential is I believe to help others. I am already Superman. Why not go beyond and help others reach inside and pull out their own best version of themselves.
It becomes frustrating when I see men fall for the same traps and pitfalls daily. Not just with family and the people I work with but, all around me as I watch the news or read another article about a man being raped in divorced, or worse killing himself over a woman. This knowledge can save lives and help raise a better family unit instead of continuing the cycle. Someone has to at least make a attempt at changing things. Martian Luther King and Malcolm X were once running through the same maze black people were, and still are going through to this day, until they receive higher knowledge to do more than what is expected of them as far as human and skin tone level is concerned.
“I often wish that I could save everyone but I’m a dreamer” as the Rapper Scarface said in his song with 2pac called “Smile”. I guess at times its good that I have some sort of secret knowledge that nobody else has. Its kind of cool in a nerd like way. But, sometimes I do wish some men would take off their headphones and try to find their own Superhero deep within themselves. I believe more lives and families could be saved. Hopefully one day it can be. Maybe then the “Genie” can go back in the bottle. But again
“I’m a dreamer”.
