Blought #15: You woke? Then go back to sleep...
What is a faux black elite you ask? My definition is as follows, any African American who claims to be “woke” and attempts to exude a higher level of knowledge of self over their fellow African Americans. I posted a meme that mirrored my sentiments. A high school classmate of mine by the name of Daniel had this to say:
“This is something I've noticed as well. Most notably people who claim to be "woke" seem to still be limited in their thought process. A lot have the "if it glitters its gold mentality" about the information they find and the sources they receive it from. Almost like they're so excited to be classified in this group of very intelligent people of color that they've come up with to label themselves as, that they make the same illogical and poorly reasoned decisions that made them "sleep" or whatever there alternative is in the first place.
True intelligence does not have to be thrown in your face, its to be recognized. Nor does it make any sense to educate yourself for the purpose of bragging to others.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself. They are most easily identified by wearing African diaspora garb and regurgitating insanely inaccurate memes and information regarding our history. Faux Black Elite, you’re hurting the cause. Peace.
