Smart girls are the over-thinkers, the insecure ones, the different ones. They know what the real world is like. They analyze every little thing in life. Why? To avoid getting hurt. To find happiness. They stay up at night trying to think about every possible situation to get through all the problems. They think too much. They trust less people. Their insecurity proves their respect towards themselves. Of course they try to live away from a drama-filled life. Smart girls know their worth, now that’s the ones worth keeping by your side.

It is not coincidental that hip hop has made “nigga” the most common noun in popular music but you have almost never heard any certified thug utter the word cracker, ofay, honky, peckerwood, wop, dago, guinea, kike or any other white-oriented epithet. The reason for that is simple: Massa ain’t havin’ it. The word fag, once a commonplace derisive in the music has all but disappeared from hip hop’s vocabulary. (Yes, these thugs fear the backlash from white gays too.) And bitch is still allowed with the common understanding that the term is referring to black women. The point is this: debasement of black communities is entirely acceptable—required even— by hip hop’s predominantly white consumer base.

A lot of us love to shout phrases like “Black is Beautiful” and throw the fist up, which is by all means fine, but we should never lose sight of the simple fact that the world is run by power. We need Power. Just repeating phrases and throwing the fist up is not going to get us where we need to be. We have years and years of Knowledge but knowledge is only power when you can manifest it into your actions and make changes. Otherwise you’re walking around with a gun with no bullets. After obtaining Power, we would no longer need to walk around shouting phrases such as “Black is Beautiful” or even throwing our fist up because our very presence would allow people to know what we are about.
 “We must remember, the world is not ruled by blackness or beauty, it’s ruled by power.  And to be black and beautiful means nothing unless ultimately you are black and powerful.” Dr. John Henrik Clarke
