The Energy Of Black Comedy Is Real and Closer to Home

What Happens When Black Comedy Becomes Too Real?
I just finished watching “Martin Lawrence Presents: 1st Amendment Standup” and I have to admit that aside from a couple of comedians it wasn’t really funny. I saw 3 episodes back to back. I’ve always like Martin Lawrence it’s not really his fault, and I will ALWAYS support him and all that he produces.

Comedy has always revolved around the ENERGIES present in our lives and communities. However it's harder to laugh due to the serious issues that plague this race. So when laughter stops in the community and things such as violence and the lack of pleasant social conditions become too REAL. These ENERGIES are in your face and can be felt in the community. When that happens comedy suffers.
I say to Black people come on now; we can’t continue to run from the ENERGY of our race and culture. The things that Black comedians say and try to get a laugh out of, isn’t as funny as times prior. The problems in our communities are real and escalating.
Jokes about Black sex aren’t funny anymore, Black women are the leaders in STD’s and Black men have become very aggressive sexually, physically and mentally. Jokes about violence aren’t funny anymore Black men are killing each other for frivolous reasons due to their daily frustrations and lack of loving homes, families and communities. Jokes about relationships aren’t funny anymore look at the type of social interactions that are occurring between Black men and Black women.
We can’t run from our ENERGY forever, we can’t hide behind jokes forever. God and this Universe wouldn’t allow it.
A female comedian “Chinnitta Morris” featured on the show was funny, raw and REAL. She joked about relationships and points out the fact that Black women have become so desperate they have lower their standards. She said at some point Black women in their desperation will think they don’t even need a man with teeth, they don’t need a man with a good job, 'any job will do' and the longer a woman waits the more her standards lower. She said that you go back to your list of “wants” after years of waiting and realize he doesn’t even need two legs you say “he can lean on me Lord, he can lean on me”.
Though I laughed; it’s hard not to laugh when Chinnitta takes the mic, the reality is:
This is not so funny when it’s true that we are facing an epidemic in this race. Black women are single due to the small pool of eligible Black men in the community, a problem which exists for many reasons. It’s NOT SO FUNNY when the hope and the prospect of that being different in the future seems slim for many, this sad reality will linger, even the brightest and most beautiful face it. Ironically sometimes they face it more than their counterparts who will settle for anyone.
She tricked the females in the audience when she opened her act by asking the age old question “Where are all the single ladies in the house” many women clapped and cheered, then she said stop trying to act like you happy, ya’ll know ya’ll mad ya’ll the main ones at home crying when ya gonna bless me Jesus praying, “oh Lord please I been to church three Sunday’s straight Lord, please send me a man”. Lol
This situation didn’t happen right away but over time and it won’t be corrected suddenly either, that’s why for the sake of future generations the rehabilitation needs to start now. There use to be a time when they called out for the “single ladies” and the single ladies hollered back, because it’s no big deal it just meant you where available and you’re acknowledging your group, “shouting out” with your group and those like you. It represented more of a choice.
Now many women are surprised to be in that position.
She got the crowd again, when she said “Where are all the married women” and they too clapped and cheered with the ENERGY of thank God I’m not a part of the single crowd then she said “ya’ll need to stop trying to act like you happy too, ya’ll know ya’ll not happy….”. NOT SO FUNNY, in a time where many Black women are getting married just so they won’t be single and considered a statistic.
She went on to point out that even UGLY Black men in this generation have an attitude and demands now.
This is because Black woman’s DESPERATE ENERGY and fear of being alone allows even an UGLY man to feel as if he has the upper hand. Black women think they can HIDE this ENERGY but they can’t. The culture that Black women support metaphysically makes their everyday social interactions more challenging. Once Black women realize this, they will stop supporting a culture that influences Black men to act in a way that affects how they are treated.

Black men are taught how to treat Black women. Unfortunately many are taught by this culture and other men in the community. But the strongest influence that determines how men a man will treat a woman is by observing what women seem to respond to. Black women have sent the message that they support being treated badly because that is what they support.


It doesn't matter if you didn't want to send that message. As I stated before this is a metaphysical universe once you partake in an action you cannot control the ENERGY it releases. To release yourself from the ENERGY you would have to change your actions. That would mean that Black women would have to have a dedication in not supporting those who don't seem to respect them. This is a tough task for a race that can be swayed easily by rhythm.
The next comedian “Mark Simmons” joked about how he can’t even go get a gyro sandwich late at night after work from an Italian Restaurant in Chicago. He said “before I get started I want to tell all the thugs out there in Chicago stay from outside of all the late night Italian and beef gyro places you trouble makers” He said you pull up see 78 white T-shirts and you get scared and say “I ain’t about to go in here, oh no I’m not”.
He said if you dare to go in you have to sit in your car and figure out how much your order will be with tax and only take THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY in the restaurant. So if you get robbed they won’t take all your money, just the price of the sandwich.
Mark Simmons was funny because his jokes EXPOSED the ENERGY of this race, but again IT’S JUST TOO REAL! Its borderline sad.

We cannot and will NOT be able to continue to escape the ENERGY of Black men being more scared of each other then anybody else in the world.
He also spoke about Black women misrepresenting themselves, with weaves, extensions, the “booty pop”, false eyelashes, fake nails, contacts, then they what to show you their picture, he said “I don’t want to see your picture I need to see a X-RAY”, lol, lol, lol
But once again IT’S JUST TOO REAL, it's true. Women are try to transform themselves into the air-brushed illusion that is fed to them. This has always been the case but in this era they are trying to mirror video hoes, and hookers. To do so you must be fake. In the process many men are taught not to come against this because they are men. But subconsiously they need perfection for their fantasies but connect with real in reality. 

That's an ENERGY Black men would have to be honest about, clarify and correct by keeping those women under their bed. When they seemingly idolize them openly it changes the way that Black women have and the perception they have of themselves. This is why women talk about ass just as much as men in this era. It seems to be a man's main concern so it becomes there's also.

This comedy show took place in Chicago, how many people and their families in the audience do you think have been victimized by the ENERGY of many Chicago neighborhoods? Judging by the faces of some in the audience, I would say many.

Watch Chinnita Morris and Mark Simmons In Action:

Along with Mark Simmons and  Chinnitta Morris, Sandra Bernhard performed too. Ironically she was the funniest to me; her jokes did not revolve around stereotypical clich├ęs and repetitive topics. I’m glad some Black people stood up for her to make her feel welcomed, thus coming against those that sent DEAD ENERGY because they couldn't relate to her. Hooray to them!
Black people have always had a hard time listening to White comedy we will claim it’s not funny. But the truth is we won’t admit that we don’t understand much of it because we can’t relate to it, our lives are different. We come from environments that have different mentalities so we react differently to most situations. Many of us simply don’t have broad enough minds to grasp the many directions white comedians go in, “it’s like what?” We’ve always had trouble grasping broad minded people, even amongst ourselves. Black people who are broad minded are usually considered peculiar, corny, gay or lame.
It’s time for Black people to learn about Metaphysics, we have fueled as well as accelerated many of our problems by creating and supporting a culture that seems to highlight and celebrate being simple and negative. We celebrate and become nonchalant to all the ENERGIES we want to escape.
In God’s metaphysical world he will make what you embrace and the ENERGIES you allow to rain down on your environment and affect your life.
Again I will ALWAYS support Martin Lawerence and the stand-up comedy shows he puts out which give jobs to Black comedians, but we must assess the ENERGY in everything that we absorb.
And the fact of the matter is our jokes about NEGATIVITY are all so REAL now. The jokes don’t reflect or represent a few any more, instead they reflect many and the overwhelming, dominating ENERGIES of our communities.
