I have been a victim of this phenomenon a lot in my life. It seems like when it comes to dealing with other black men, many of them secretly wish to see me fail; many of whom I thought were on the same team as me. These niggas are only cool with you when they COMPLETELY outdo you in every way; then they go from hating on you, to looking down on you. Or better yet, they make sure to NEVER acknowledge you in any way that will give you any type of shine, hoping that you will DROP OFF and quit. Then, after you are gone, they want to finally give you props. PLEASE!!
I have been the recipient of a shocking amount of Silent Haterism from other black men for a while now; to where everything that I have done has been largely unsupported by the, so-called, brotherhood. Many of these niggas are completely out for self, and they could care less about helping to bring up the next black man. It has come to my conclusion, that DarkOneSun is disliked by a lot of the brothers who I thought that I was cool with.
Over the past two years, I have come out with many projects that were geared towards black men; and many of them have been largely IGNORED by the brotherhood; and they all know damn well about them. I have seen many of these niggas support everyone but me. At first, I thought that they didn’t know about the stuff that I did. However, my stuff can be found all over the damn internet. It doesn’t seem to matter what it is either; book, blog, forum, etc. These cats seem to conveniently IGNORE everything that I do.
I could see if the projects were hidden from plain sight, but they can easily be found anywhere on Google. I have looked on various websites, and have seen black men conversing on these websites in a way that’s laborious to them, all in an effort to keep from supporting my forum. There’s no excuse, they all know about it. At first I thought that I was, maybe, imagining things. However, it appears that ole’ DarkOneSun is silently hated by many of the brothers that I thought that I was cool with. While I support them, they NEVER support anything that I ever do.
In fact, they will support anyone BUT me, for that matter. I have never been guilty of silently hating on another brother, like they ALWAYS seem to do on me. Some of these niggas make me laugh, talking about how they are going to build, and all of that mess. However, many of these cats have never built a damn thing besides a pile of rhetoric. I also notice that many of these cats follow the women wherever they go; and do nothing but argue with them non-stop about the same old issues.
It seems like many of these cats are in a never-ending search for fame, and could care less about helping out other black men; even if there is no cost involved. For the life of me, I am trying to figure out why am I the recipient of this mess? I built a forum for many black men to speak on, and yet, these cats go anywhere BUT there. I wrote a book for young black men to read, and get through society. Yet, these young cats do nothing but send me PMs how to get through life, when I put it all in a book for the young heads to read.
Honestly, I am getting sick of many black men trying to get every damn thing for free. They will help you out in ANY way, as long as it doesn’t benefit you at damn all. One brother told me, one time: “How about giving away your book for free?” I guess that I am supposed to give away a damn 646 page book for free? Yeah, they want the book, as long as I don’t benefit in ANY WAY from my own work? I mean, how in the hell can black men ever do business with one another if they don’t want to support other black men’s endeavors?
With another group that I belong to, when my book was announced, the thread went all the damn way down to the bottom, and off of the page altogether. Hell, I donated to their cause, and they wouldn’t even ACKNOWLEDGE mine. I thought that we were on the same team. However, they sure as hell don’t act like it anymore. Along the way, I must have fell in ill-repute with some of the brethren; and I don’t have a damn clue as to what I did for that to even happen.
It should all be about trying to bring up other black men any way you can. Especially, the ones who are trying to do things that benefit other black men; as a whole. It looks like many of the brothers have let their egos get in the way of this happening. It also appears that they HATE to see another brother succeed at all off of their OWN HARD WORK; and will SILENTLY HATE your ass into oblivion hoping that you eventually give up and quit. They really kill the drive that many black men have in creating things for the benefit of other brothers.
If there’s one thing that I have never done is quit, and I will win this war. I will be victorious.
That is all.
