Yassuh Massuh! 13 Ways to Know You MIGHT be Infected with a Slave Mentality

wwwsswwsWe make a lot of references to the slave mentality.  So, the your black world team decided to put together a list of ways to know that you might possess the slave mentality. The list is meant to be funny, but then again, it’s not.  It would only be funny is these things weren’t true for some of us.  But at least we now know the symptoms.

Here you go:


1)      If you’re the one who will spend $300 at Wal-Mart, but think a black man is a criminal for asking you to spend $9.99 to support his business.  Remember that Wal-Mart doesn’t give a d*amn about you, but black businesses tend to be the ones that will hire black workers.  Go ahead and spend the $9.99  to help a brother or sister out, it won’t hurt you.

2)      If you are complaining that no one will give you a job, yet don’t want to listen when someone tells you that you can start your own business.  Just accept that white America doesn’t love you if you don’t ever learn how to love yourself.   You don’t have to always work for somebody else.

3)      If you think that nappy hair is a curse that can only be cured with the use of poisonous and expensive substances

4)      If you think that a light skinned woman is automatically more attractive than a dark-skinned one, even if she has the face of a blow fish.

5)      If you support a politician just because he’s a black democrat, but can’t really explain why.

6)      If you hear a rapper call black women b*tches and hoes and still play that music in front of your kids.  That’s it: train your daughter to be a hοe while she’s young.

7)      If you congratulate your son for not going to jail, but don’t care that he never learned how to read.

8)      If you think a black man deserves a trophy for taking care of his own d*amn kids

9)      If you think that your child’s father is an optional, unnecessary accessory in the child-rearing process and that your kids are just fine without their daddy around.  Sorry to break it to you, but the damage won’t be seen for another 10 years.

10)   If you are able to work 10 hours a day at a fast food restaurant but think that studying for three hours a day is a waste of time

11)   If your kids know how to twerk before they learn their ABCs

12)   If your kids think that Harriet Tubman is a hairy man who fixes bath tubs.

13)   If you “can’t afford” to pay for your child’s tutor, but save your tax refund to buy him a pair of Air Jordans

  56. Hi there i read your web site typically and assumed i’d personally say every one of the best for 2010!

  57. Most of you, especialy Devon knows exactly how I feel. I’ll just share my comments on my timeliine; most people who read my page like what I have to say.

  58. Ever wonder WHY??? there are no black owned businesses or supermarket???

    • Yeah I do wonder. Since down here in Miami there are a whole mess of Latino owned supermarkets like El Presidente, Sedanos, and La Mia. There is also a Latino Walgreens which is Navarro.

  59. Oh give it a rest, would you??? Geeesh. Black people just love to keep “stirring the pot”. STHU!!!!

    • You probably do wish some1 black was stirring that pot for you and hoping they was putting something tasteful in it for you. You give it a rest with that ignorant(glad I spelled it right) ****. or find some1 who wants to hear it. Endearment not ignorance, Bucko. Jesus should beat ur ass. U know he’s black right. just gotta say that. cause ya’ll was drawing too hard that image black artist were confussed about for a time and probably got a premonition about. Run the race for the right team.

  60. Sorry but this sounds more like someone’s rant.

  61. Franklin from florida

    Glad to see you back Derrick, missed your knowledge.


  63. Being over+++ I just ave a problem with having to Ms Annie to white person that is yoounger than me but its alright to call me by my first name Kiss my ASs I can’t. Do it call me what you want. This the South I know but ain’t going to happen

  64. That is truly scary. We as Black People need to get our priorities straight.

  65. I didn’t get this article at all! There are NO black owned businesses where I reside! We have black farmers, yet no black owned supermarkets…LOL! Do I need to go on? How can u own a business, with no money to start a business? Whoever wrote this needs Drug Rehab! Smoking weed while thinking can be a disastrous thing! This is sad…

  66. Using the term “slave mentality” to describe another black person MIGHT be a sign of having a slave mentality….

  67. The Wal-Mart part of the list is the most interesting part. The Waltons are billionaires, but can’t even pay their employees (not counting managers and those above) living wages. Yet, millions of people give their money to them without this realization. It’s exploitation, and those employees know they can do better. Meanwhile, Costco pays their employees $12+/hr (starting pay!), and the average salary there is well over 40k/yr for base-level employees without college diplomas.

    I stopped shopping there a long time ago. I wish millions of others did the same thing. Capitalism is a good thing, but only when it’s not being abused by greedy corporations. Sadly, we have one too many of those.

  68. Oh, don’t get me started. Love my Black people, however, the mentality of some just amaze me. It’s sad, however I refuse to give up on us. Mentoring our children and letting them know that depending on the government makes one a slave to not realizing that they can do better. WORD!!

  69. Your Massuh World; you are a perfect example with a slave mentality.

    You erase Real Black Truth, but let your cracker planters (trolls) say anythang about Black people.



    • Hey Derrick!!!! Instead of ranting and belittling your fellow brothas and sistas, try to enlighten them. You seem to be more of the enemy than the oppressor.

    • Whoops! Better take my meds or my down low self is gonna start spewing falsehoods created by black supremacists from the 1950’s and pass it off as ‘scientific knowledge’. Now, back to my gaye secks dunjin to get my booty played with

  70. Simply outrageous, sad and true all at the same time.. :) 😉 😀 :P. I love it ~♥~

  71. There are other things you could have added to this list but this is a good start. Its sad but Black people have gone backward not forward. The unemployment rate is just as hign now in the Black community as it was 50 years ago. That was the reason for the March on Washington. Now they have commercialized the March on Washington. Oh well.

  72. I think Yassuh Massuh has a slave mentality 4 coming up with this crap!

    • I agree, why would anyone come up with a conversation like this? Yassuh Massuh was a term some of our forefathers/mothers had to use to even feed their family! It was a ploy to make the enslaver think that ithey were superior to them! No MAN IS MORE SUPERIOR THAN ANOTHER , I believe .

  73.       If you support a politician just because he’s a black democrat, but can’t really explain why
    the whole reason obama got elected.
    stupid ne.grows

  74. when i first saw the picture i was offended but then i realised the messge was consistent to it

  75. devon,

    outstanding comment. i agree with every word you say. it’s a shame that the majority of our people are literally sleepwalking through life fighting the medicine you and a few others are dispensing to remedy their malaise of misinformation. i guess they’ll wake up when the shackles are clamped in place.

    i have put out recommendations of audio,video and book. yet people don’t like it when they are proven to be so wrong. they will use my words and my recommendations yet not give credit. they are like mental, academic scavengers regurgitating others concepts without an ounce of their own original thought in their simple little minds. i say this not to belittle them, just to state the facts of the matter.

    like i mentioned to this brother, on another post, there are a few (including yourself), not thousands, who understand what is really going on. the rest are so stupid that they want you to be stupid with them. i can’t do it. i know you can’t either.

    what i have seen of your comments you seem to get it. if the ignorant don’t want the knowledge let them wallow in their own mental waste!

    what you are experiencing, this frustration, is the allegory of plato’s cave. check out the website to see exactly what you are feeling.

    the webpage is: http://www.ancientgreece.co.uk/knowledge/story/sto_set.html

    you will see what i mean.

    i am too tired to continue seeing the stupidity of the masses who will post thousands for “massahs” discussions yet not even a hundred for their actual voting rights being taken away. tens of thousands for a billboard to “pull your pants up” yet not even a hundred to actually make progress and cast a light on, and make people pay personally (CSC v.p. calls blacks n-word). i have commented on these posts myself trying to educate while commenting but the river of distraction from the uninformed is too much for me to stand much longer.

    i even believe that we have people from the great group, who shall remain nameless, looking at this website who would love to help us in acquiring info to expose the blatant racism out there, but because we aren’t serious enough as cohesive group that it would useless to get involved until they see a true serious group ready to do the work.

    if you continue on, good luck. i wish you well. keep up the fight, if you can.

  76. Devon,
    you have hit the nail on the head. Most black people have no concept of what true wealth is. I am not just talking about monetary means, but the enormous benefits of investing time in your children, and community. The benefits that we as a people and society would reap would be enourmous. Please read “Black Labor White Wealth by Claud Anderson, ed.D.
    It gives a clear and concise understanding why most Blacks think like they do and what we need to do to fix it.

  77. You said it all,brother !!!!!!
