Or do black people not know how to support each other?
Black people always ask the question why is it so hard to make it? Well simply answered.. Because of our own selves. Us black people have a hard time supporting something that’s not already a big thing.
For a young black person to make it in the world of entertainment we have to make a million YouTube videos, throw thousands of events, spam your facebook account and kill your twitter time line just so you can recognize us. And even then you still might not pay us any attention.
Now I don’t know if it’s because some people just create garbage and post it online and now everyone is on defense on what they support, but for the most part its so many young talented black people trying to expose you to there talent and getting stiff armed because of the way us African Americans take in new things.
To tell the truth most of us wouldn’t download something even if its free. I guess that’s why so many black artist put out so much free music.
On the other hand white people get so much support from each other. Last night I worked a Dave Matthew’s Band concert, and you wouldn’t believe the energy and support that was coming from the crowd. Some people couldn’t get in and they were in the parking lot singing the songs and getting hype. Look how big the Justin Beibers, Jonas Brothers, and Miley Ciruses, all are. Even black artist like Flo Rida who went pop are getting more buzz because the way white people embraced them.
So blacks, African Americans, Negros.. DO BETTER!
But Hey, Maybe It’s Just Me, “Since most of our fans are black, Yall Probably aint gone read this..lol” Mike3G
On Twitter, members of #TeamDormtainment spoke about sometimes getting emotional due to Dormtainment. Not just overly happy, or excited, but upset when they are disrespected, deflated when they don’t get the chance they deserve, or other experiences concerning Dormtainment.
I wonder how many fans have ever experienced this other than myself. And should a fan go through the emotions of happy, sad, mad, etc, why would others consider that person a groupie? It’s kinda like Trey’s Angels. There are young women who love Trey Songz, would don’t just wanna screw his brains out. Those young women and even men who just want that attention. A simple hello would make their entire life. An autograph and picture would be cherished forever. So what’s the difference between those women/men who like Trey Songz, or Beyonce and those women and men who love Dormtainment?
Honestly the only difference I see is that Dormtainment isn’t world wide. But should Chris Brown insinuate that Trey Songz was homosexual, we’d have World War 3 on our hands and vice versa.
My main reason for writing this was simply because someone commented that those people who were HIGHLY OFFENDED by the video Spoken Reasons created was groupies. I don’t think they fully understand why most, if not all of Team Dormtainment was upset.
For instance, I was upset because SR didn’t just make fun of Dormtainment, he made fun of a lifestyle. A lifestyle that people have lost their lives because this is what they love. People are bullied daily because of their sexual orientation. I think people need to look at the underlying messages being shown to them. Use BOTH sides of your brain.
