Over the course of the last few years, I've noticed that morons have shrewdly decided to label themselves free thinkers with little to no opposition. In addition to patting themselves on the back for being outside-the-box thinkers—that are no longer sheep, "free thinkers," frequently fashion themselves to the "One" that has figured out the matrix.
What is the matrix you might ask? The matrix is a program (a set of ideas/principles) that impedes society's ability to think freely. So according to free thinkers, the majority of humanity has accepted a mental virus that prevents them from thinking for themselves. While I do agree that most people lack the ability or desire to truly analyze complicated issues in a meaningful manner, it's fascinating to watch purported free thinkers push anti-Black and harmful beliefs that are rooted in hateful ideology originally crafted by slave owners. Morons like Candace Owens and Kanye West believe that being a white supremacist trapped in a Black body makes them unique and free thinkers, when in actuality, being a white supremacists who hates those infused with melanin has been the popular thing to be in this country since America's inception.
A true "free thinker" is an individual who possesses the ability and patience to digest information and form their own opinions versus parroting and regurgitating ideologies that have existed in the mind's of racists since the 1600s. How can you claim to be a free thinker or non-sheep when your core set of beliefs aren't even your own? A person who's really capable of thinking outside-the-box would find themselves promoting ideas and innovative solutions that have no alignment to the Republican or Democratic parties. Why is that you may ask? Well, the great Malcolm X said it best:
"If you stick a knife in my back nine inches and pull it out six inches, there's no progress. If you pull it all the way out that's not progress. Progress is healing the wound that the blow made. And they haven't even pulled the knife out much less heal the wound. They won't even admit the knife is there.
Neither party is interested in healing the devastating wound that exist in the heart of African Americans as the result of America's actions. So instead of promoting this foolish idea that Black Americans need to flee the Democratic Party in mass numbers and become Republicans, the more free way of thinking would be emphasizing that it's time to acknowledge that neither party is good for us. The two-party system is incapable of pursuing or implementing the changes that are needed to repair the damage that the government has systemically inflicted upon the Black community. Both parties openly oppose reparations, which means both parties are inherently anti-Black. Instead of telling African Americans that one party would be better for us than the other party, a free thinker would be advocating that as many of us as possible become Independents that demand the reparations that are owed to us.
Black men in particular are tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. While politicians and their cohorts continue to try to bully Black men into voting just to vote, the silent coalition of Black men that have decided that voting for the lesser of two evils is no longer an option is expanding exponentially. Many of these brothers have participated in every election since they have turned eighteen, but they have decided that enough is enough. These brothers didn't reach this point of no return because a moron or shill from the Republican party like Candace Owens or Kanye West inspired them to do so, these brothers just finally woke up and fully digested what Malcolm X said in the 60s and it resonated with them and set them on a course of not participating in politics until Reparations are on the table.
This country is in for a rude awakening with the upcoming elections because politicians are listening to the loud voices of puppets/sheep that are masquerading as free thinkers, instead of developing policies that appeal to the true free thinkers. Free thinkers are individuals that will not be bullied or guilted into voting just because "our ancestors died for the right to vote." A free thinker knows that our ancestors weren't merely fighting for the right to vote, they were fighting for the right to be free. If voting doesn't lead to true freedom or at a minimum—reparations, get ready for the silent free thinkers to show that their votes aren't free.
