Definition of a Safe Negro...

I had to post this when I came across it.

It's from the Dancy Communications Network (or DNC) and it has alot of Black-positive stuff on it.

The original link is here:

And the whole article is below. Check it out.


Definition of a safe Negro

Definition of a safe Negro is a Black Elected Official, President/Chair of an organization, Pastor of a church, Minister and grassroots leader who do not question or have anything to say in a public meeting as it relates to the problems within the Black community.
One who feels he/she has arrived. (Arrived = forgot from whence they came and because they have a little something they look down on other black folks.)

One who knows and sees racism but try to act as if it do not exist. One who will follow Racist White Folks around by believing in what they say without doing their own homework.

One who will sit on boards and will not vote for positive change that will affect the black community because they do not want to rock the boat. One who will get in the (real black leaders) lane because they want to tell others about their role when they don't even know their role or the rules.

One who say they want to groom young blacks to be leaders when all they really want to do is use them. One who will talk about (real black leaders) who are actively engaged in community issues, know the issues and speak out in the public.

One who is jealous of the (real black leaders) who will speak truth to power by confronting racism and other isms that exist while the safe Negro benefits.

This is a few examples of my definition of a safe Negro.



Am I a "Safe Negro?"

Ha! You Wish!

Omg!! Just found this. You made me chuckle. I'm a frustrated educator in a system of folk who don't know we are free. I'm surrounded by Safe Negroes.
