Indeed, Black people who practice anti-blackness is a form of self-loathing, but this would be an oversimplification, if I narrowly concluded this fact alone. If I left it at that then most of those Black persons would easily refute this by listing any number of inconsistencies to counter my accusation. What they cannot refute however, is the detriment of their attitudes and behaviors — motivated by ignorance, that portend a cognitive style of basing their beliefs solely on some intuition. An intuition that is incorrect, not some of the time but all of the time.

The failures in their non-analytical cognitive thinking styles is not even considered a perception but a huge blindspot. Their intuition has nothing to do with reflective or introspective thinking — evidently. It has nothing to do with self awareness — obviously.

What it does reveal is a fear impressed upon them by (whiteness) a set of insensitive beliefs motivated by ignorance that lack any appropriate domain of knowledge. This conspiracy effect is what we consistently see, which is reliant on an emotive thought process predicated on a misleading representativeness (such as church-going folk, or black elitists, to name a couple)…I guess you can call it magical thinking when they rely on these pseudo-ESP super powers — because it is definitely not based on empirical evidence, or even common sense.

  • **The conspiracy effect in this context is not limited to but includes the common cliché that Blacks are beholden to Democrats because they are promised handouts that actually never get handed out. The only plausible reason that Blacks vote liberal is because the African American community has historically held them to account for civil rights and fair economic initiatives. The other party doesn’t even pretend (the way most white liberals in governance do) to make such progressive moves (institutionally nor structurally) on social issues. It boils down to the lesser of two evils — one in which provides a sliver of an opening to move on civil rights.

As recently as 2012, studies show that 47 percent of blacks identify as liberal and 45 percent as conservative, but 93 percent voted for the reelection of Barack Obama. — Washington Post, September 28, 2016

A vote obviously aligned with the collective diaspora’s well-being and best interests that reflects a solidarity. I don’t know whose side those Anti-Black Blacks are on because surely republicans don’t want them and Trump just uses them.
