Free read ☆ Stop Being Niggardly ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Nig·gard·ly adj nig´erd le1 stingy miserly; not generous2 begrudging about spending or granting3 provided in a meanly limited supply If you don’t know the definition of the word you might assume it to be a derogatory insult a racial slur You might be personally offended and deeply outraged You might write an angry editorial or organize a march You might even find yourself making national headlines In other words you’d better know what the word means before you pour your energy into overreacting to it That’s the jumping off point for this powerful directive from Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and bestselling author. This book was outstanding For the second time this year I have come across a book that speaks the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth Earlier this year I read the book ENOUGH by Juan Williams and I could not sing the praises of the message of that book enough and now I have discovered the book STOP BEING NIGGARDLY by Karen Hunter and I cannot stop singing praises of Ms Hunter s message The reason being the messages of both Ms Hunter and Mr Williams are very similar They both like Bill Cosby and Minister Farrakhan seek to help African Americans see the inappropriate behaviors that we African Americans partake in that keep us from being as successful as we can be Ms Hunter and Mr Williams express so elouently in their books my personal views and opinions concerning why African Americans as a race is not as far along as I know we could be In both books one might think the authors are Anti African American even though both are indeed African American As I have written in previous blogs the problem that I see with African Americans and yes I know I am generalizing and that there are individual cases is that we really do resist hearing the things we need to either stop doing or start doing to improve ourselves as a whole Not only do we resist hearing it we don t make the necessary changes needed for improvement This could never be evident then what Bill Cosby experienced when he delivered his now famous Pound Cake Speech He was lambasted by both African Americans who have uote unuote made it and by those who were nowhere near making it all because he had the courage to speak the truth in terms of what African Americans need to do to move forward Like President Barack Obama he heard that he wasn t Black enough or had lost his blackness because he expressed his views on why African Americans stay gridlocked in terms of moving forward in society He dared ask the African American community to look within her own house or in the mirror and as a result was ostracized and nearly outcast from the African American community Minister Louis Farrakhan has been preaching the same messages for years concerning our African Americans being able to do for ourselves to no avail We still tend to gravitate towards any silly fad that comes along ie sagging pants being fascinated by the Bling which is usually fake having to show that we spent the most money on an item albeit automobile sneakers jewelry etc calling each other derogatory terms and thinking it is cute not taking the importance of education seriously and the list goes on and on When someone points this out to us African Americans we then want to get an attitude or try to justify these behaviors in every which way possible Usually it has something to do with the white man or our having been enslaved for over four hundred years Yes there may some truth to these justifications however we cannot continue to be paralyzed by the fact that we were once slaves or by what the white man does or does not do Karen Hunter says it well in her book STOP BEING NIGGARDLY when she says I can t control white people I can only control me It has been my experience that we are uick to not do what we are supposed to do and then turn around and blame the white man for what we feel we ought to have received if we had done what we were supposed to have done How can you blame the white man for your not having a job because you dropped out of school How can you blame anyone for your limited options when you did not take your education seriously So just as when I wrote the blog concerning The Pound Cake Speech I expect folks to be critical of my views and I am okay with that I agree with Karen Hunter when she says that she knows that drops of water on any hard surface will over time wear through that hard surface and she hopes as do I to be yet another drop of water She likens the drops to the words of Nannie Helen Burroughs Marcus Garvey Marva Collins Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Malcolm X preachers and teachers who attempt to inspire and motivate people to have full lives The message is not new but it is resisted and denied It is our hope that enough of us will continue to be drops of water eroding that rock like surface of denial and resistance in order for African Americans to move to higher heights More of us must get to the point where we realize the truth and take action to move us further forward Being in denial or getting mad at the messengers will keep us stuck in mediocrity and will continue to move us further and further away from excellence Like Ms Hunter Mr Williams Mr Cosby and Minister Farrakhan I will continue to be that drop of water continuously hitting that hard surface of African American denial of our issues I am not anti white however I am pro black and because I am pro black I cannot just sit by and watch us as a people continue to move backward while making a bunch of excuses as to why Making excuses for why we ought to be able to call each other nigger and hos why we ought not speak correctly or parent our children correctly why we ought to be happy being mis educated and under educated and the list goes on I for one will not hold my peace because someone might say that I am not black enough or have lost touch with my blackness We can and must do better than what we do Nannie Mae Burroughs wrote in the 30 s Twelve Things the Negro Must Do and the twelve things she outlined still are applicable in 2010 and as we move into 2011 I say again we can and must do better than what we do Let us face it and fix it Twelve Things the Negro Must Do by Nannie Helen Burroughs1 The Negro Must Learn to Put First Things First2 The Negro Must Stop Expecting God and White Folk to Do for Him What He Can Do for Himself3 The Negro Must Keep Himself His Children and His Home Clean and Make the Surroundings in Which He Lives Comfortable and Attractive4 The Negro Must Learn to Dress More Appropriately for Work and for Leisure5 The Negro Must Make His Religion an Everyday Practice and Not Just a Sunday Go to Meeting Emotional Affair6 The Negro Must Highly Resolve to Wipe Out Mass Ignorance7 The Negro Must Stop Charging His Failures Up to His Color and to White People s Attitude8 The Negro Must Overcome His Bad Job Habits9 The Negro Must Improve His Conduct in Public Places10 The Negro Must Learn How to Operate Business for People Not for Negro People Only11 The Average So Called Educated Negro Will Have to Come Down Out of the Air12 The Negro Must Stop Forgetting His Friends Remember
