Does The Black Race Suffer From An Inferiority Complex?

As great as the late Michael Jackson was many Blacks questioned his acceptance to being a Black man. His transformation to a lighter skin complexion in his later years was viewed with suspicion. Despite many news reports which have suggested Michael Jackson was afflicted with the disease known as vitiligo, Blacks have remained suspicious. The suspicion was probably heightened because Michael Jackson succumbed to the plastic surgeons knife on many occasions, the result, the alteration of physical characteristics worn proudly by Blacks.

In recent days yet another high profile Black celebrity is being accused of ‘messing’ with his skin colour. Sammy Sosa the poor boy born in the Dominican Republic; who went on to become a famous baseball player in the American Major League Baseball admits to the following:

… in the middle of doing a cleansing process to his skin. The picture is deceiving. He said, If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture.

There is probably consensus to the point that prominent Black celebrities, especially sportsmen are role models for millions of children including Blacks around the globe. Some may question the effect decisions by high profile Black celebrities is having on the psyche of the Black race. Do we accept that colour is only skin deep? If that is the case what conclusions can be made by the decision of Sosa to undergo skin treatment?

The fact is many Blacks who are not celebrities purchase bleaches to lighten skin complexion, straighten curly hair which is a natural feature of Blacks and the list goes on. What does this say about our Black people? Are we reading too much into these kinds of decisions? Are these decisions indicative of a Black race continuing to struggle with poor esteem?

The big question: does the Black race suffer from an inferiority complex?

    One could look at Europeans’ clear desire to darken their skins (even for a few weeks only by suntanning or worse ultra violent light) as an indication that the ‘grass is greener on the other side’. Many people when asked are dissatisfied with the way they are.

    One could have argued stronger with the issue of skin bleaching that ravages a lot of black population.

    I strongly feel that some of us in the black family are ashamed of our hue.Some women and men will try extra hard to mate with a person of a lighter hue or “stright hair” so that their kids can be the beneficiary of a more “desire “phenotypical trait.Most people will not admit it but deep down even on a subliminal level the consciouness is there. I called it self-hatred.People in my family is guity of it but they will never admit it.And I think the same goes for a lot of the wealthy black brothers who date white women.While you may argue that a person can date and marry whomever thay want my question is why is it that weatlhy black men dispropotionately more than ony other ethnic group marry and date outside their group? Some give the filmsy excuse about the docility of the white women but deep down I think a lot of these brothers marry these white women out of self hatred …. to right the wrong of their curse lot so that their offspring is a little better off.

    Have you ever been in conversation with some black folks and hear them gloat about how many white ancestors are in their lineage. Some are quick to boast about their family members who have blue eyes, “pretty hair”, and light skin. While I am not saying that people should not embrace the diversity of their family makeup but some of us like to use the “whiteness” of our family makeup to assert that we are “coming from good breeed”.At the same time some of us use disparaging words to describe other family members as “black as tar” and “black pepper hair”. Wether we want to beleive it or not or in denial there is a certain segment of the black population who feel that blackness is a curse.

    John has adopted a very simplistic look at this situation as he is seeing Sosa as a black man. The question is what does Sosa see himself as? Sosa is what is described as Latino/Hispanic and some people who fall within that category do not identify themselves as “Black”, e.g. you may meet someone from Puerto Rico and they would describe themselves as Latino (although it is not a race) There are realms of articles about this subject as a simple Google search would show. I suggest that readers of the blog familiarize themselves about Latino/Hispanic attitudes toward race.

    After 350 years of slavery & the near total emasculation of the Black Man by the murderers & world killers Europeans and in addition the force culture & doctrine of the same said world killers & diabolical mass murderers the Europeans,it is not surprising that many Black people of this world are suffering from the belief that being of a darker complexion is a curse.

    It is sad but it is a fact that quite a few Black men & women of this world have a feeling of inadequacy and only see themselves as worthwhile if those unfortunate lost Black idiots are in the company of stinking Europeans.

    I worked in the hotel industry for over twenty years.I have seen so many instances where Black men & women were humiliated, embarrassed & even cursed by their White partners.I have witnessed while working at cocktails receptions & parties,Black guest either being ignored or not being recognized by the White quest at those events.I used to feel very sorry for those poor souls who would endured that type of torture just to be in the company of the White world killers.

    It seems that the greatest desire of some Black People is to be in the company of the White,smelly,disease mass murderers.Many stupid Black People believe they have “arrive” and gain acceptance because they are in the company of the White bastards.

    The biggest letdowns of Black people are those who we consider to be leaders in the black community.We have black movie stars like Syndey Pottier ,James Earl Jones and some others who find it difficult to make a beautiful Black woman their wife.They must go & pick up a piece of white trash and have them as their wives.A pathetic lot those sperm & ovary wasters are.We had in our midst the most unique individual that ever came out the womb of a woman.I am referring to that clown Michael Jackson.He is the only human being who was born as Black man but died as an old white woman.He was a monumental disgrace to the Black family.I have no respect for Michael Jackson .Michael Jackson died about 35 years ago when he started transforming himself from a Black person into a white woman.

    Until Black people begin to recognize that we have a glorious history and that we are the original inhabitants of this world and that human life could not have existed with out us,we will always be a despise race of people look down by all the other ethnic groups.Our Black men & women when they achieved a certain level of prosperity & status,they must bring along their fellow Black partner.Do not be of the stupid view that to gain social acceptance we must have a piece of white trash as our partner.Why my Black brothers & sisters go through the torture that is evident just to maintain an artificial status impression I would never now,but it seems they are prepare to endure that sort of treatment.

It is an open secret that a dispropotionate amount of successful blacks( athletes, movie star, etc) date or marry average white women and the question is why this?

    @John Walcott, dare I say that people often ignore salient features and see what they want to see, even with facts to the contrary. Take my name, for instance.

    Your piece has a number of contentious premises. One thing that has been shown is that black celebrities are role models for a very wide range of racial groups, to the extent that white American parents have been known to have to deal with the seeming paradox of their children wanting to ‘be like Mike’, in that case Jordan, the black basketballer. So, your arguments about why a black celebrity may mess with his skin is not on solid ground.

    You say “But it baffles me why a black man (and Sousa [sic] is black) would feel uncomfortable with his skin colour.
    Certainly such a person must be suffering from a latent psychological problem(s)”. The contention is that it’s the colour that bothered him and you go to a conclusion that is not supported by other evidence. If he has a psychological problem, we may find its root in excessive use of anabolic steriods, whose side effects, including on psychological balance are well known.

    When you say “I can’t answer your statistical question on how many Caucasians have cosmetic surgery (I wonder how this is related to the underlying theme of the thread?)” it reflects the fact that you do not think that other races or ethnicities do things to tamper with their natural looks, making it seem that blacks are unique or at least abnormal in doing so. My contention is that they are not. So, your search for an inferiority complex is bound to lead down some blind alleys.

    Caucasians dye their hair, cut it differently, get tanned, yet that is not seen or argued to be a sign of any sense of inferiority. But maybe it is, and feelings of inferiority are more normal than you wish to suggest. People do various things to ‘enhance’ their appearance, often from a sense that society wants them to be a certain way (bigger breasts, different nose and teeth, better looking hands and feet) and there is a huge industry built on what can be seen as mere vanity but may be an near universal sense of latent inferiority. It is not limited to black people. Humans are peculiar among the species in seeking to change their original/natural form. Some animals can change, but it’s usually only temporary and to deal with circumstances (weather, predators, mating needs). So think clearly about what blacks do relative to what others do.

    You can easily make blacks seem inferior by focusing on their actions without such a context.

    @John Walcott, some have argued that social acceptance is key, so human/animal behaviour seeks to find ways to increase that. If one lives in a society and is identified with a less desired minority, it would be quite natural to try to minimize the identifying signs. That said, it’s an option that’s really open to very few, so most of us just live with what God gave us and lump it.

    Dennis Jones makes valid points regarding whites making changes to their appearance. Indeed Asian women have eye lid surgery to have European looking rounder eyes.
    The reality is that anyone undertaking major changes is doing so because they feel inferior due to race, age et al. This tends to indicate that humans are actually somewhat alike regardless of race because their brains are the same.

No one can tell me what the spiritual beliefs my blood ancestors had because my family doesn’t know, we been brought up to believe in christainity. More than not I find myself having the same inferoirty complex.

    You see it in the media beautiful caucasian women, supermodels, playboy bunniess, actresses every where you look. Its hard not to equate the idea of beauty with fair skin because every time you look on the web or turn on the tv there she is a the a fair skinned goddess with glamour and fame and riches while you look in the mirror. Yes I find myself jealous, even chirst is depicted as being fair skinned when in reality he’d probably look more like an arab or iranian man.

    Its hard not wonder whether you’ve been past up for an opportunity in life be it a job promotion, a business loan, or anything simply because your skin is not the same as the current majority of the population.

    Its social conditioning, we might say liberty and justice for all but sometimes its more liberty and justice for all who look lighter.

    But I have african american girls bully me when I went elementry school for speaking proper english. So I can’t believe that alone is responsible for racial inferiort complexes

    You know they say the only color that matters is the color of your money if I look at life from that perspective then maybe id feel better. It would be the lesser of two evils.

    On another note I think the best movie I ever saw was the fifth element. The world in that movie was very racially diverse and but universally were pretty much the same.

    And here is what a group of cult people from over and away, who have come into this country and have established churches, which are heavily patronised by many blacks ,think of us.
    2 Nephi 5 :21-24
    And he had caused the cursing to come upon them,yea,even a sore cursing,because of their iniquity. For behold,they had hardened their hearts against him,that they had become like unto a flint, wherefore,as they were WHITE ,and exceedingly FAIR and DELIGHTSOME,that they might not be enticing unto MY people,the Lord God did cause a skin of BLACKNESS to come upon them.

    And thus saith the Lord God; I will cause that they shall be LOATHSOME,unto thy people,save they shall repent of their iniquities.

    And cursed shall be the seed of him that mixeth with their seed; for they shall be cursed even with the same cursing. And the Lord spske it,and it was done.
