Open Letter to Beyonce & Jay Zee




Dear Beyonce & Jay Zee:
 
I was standing in the Black Bank in Philadelphia, Unity Bank, in Center City and a report came on about Beyonce. I didn’t hear much of it, but I did see a woman dancing with other Black women who I thought was out of control and living on the edge.  I Am a man who watches pornography, so please take this into account as you read this. I Am also a very decent and abiding and Loving man and a Man of God.  I don’t think that these things have to hold conflicting values or conflicting ethics in this strange and obtuse culture we live in.  One thing I know for sure, either the precious earth that God is said, in the Bible, to have created in six days, is going to go crashing out of control {Spiritually and religiously speaking} or it is about to be saved by mankind in Ways we can’t as humans, fully understand. When I saw Beyonce dancing I thought out loud and told the guard and the teller at the Bank – both of whom are good friends of mine – that Beyonce ``needs to put some clothes on.’’   If you go to Progress Plaza in Philadelphia and ask the teller and the guard if I said this they will tell you, yes I did say this.  I Am at a point of anger at seeing our young girls ``out of control’’ that makes me very sad and at the same times, makes me still. I Am still to listen to God about this and ask Him or Her what I can do to make things better.   That is a the crux of this letter being created.  I want you Beyonce to slow down and get some rest. You are on the same course our precious, gifted and lost Whitney Houston was on when we lost Her great personality and talent – a gift for the world to behold—when we lost Her to drugs and whatever else She was doing to death and destructing. I Am personally convinced that Her handlers, promoters, accountants, managers and hangers-on  were more responsible for Her death than She or Bobby Brown was. This was a loss that could have been snipped in the bud a few years before Her death, Whitney’s death that is, if She had taken another course and started to lead another life. I think you need to lead another life also.  It was great that you said something positive about Black Lives Matter and Black Youth needing to be helped and protected – often from the Police. But, we need you to slow down. Take time for your family. Listen to God. Read some Spiritual books. Take a nice vacation without all the hangers-on and just relax. I mean really relax with or without Jay Zee.  Rent an island if you have to, but rest is very important. So is time with your family. You need to do this. You also need to check your staff. Are you surrounded by People who have your best interests at heart, or are you surrounded by a grouping of White men and Jewish men who bring you the most money? I personally think  you need to listen to your heart and listen to God and listen to me and get a lot more Black employees who will take into consideration your need to be treated properly and with dignity and respect.  I have learned that no matter how much my thoughts put money before People, my job as a decent human being is to put People before money, appreciate People, speak to People on the street, understand their needs and motivations and where their corruptions come from.  It is not my job to avoid People, disrupt their lives unless they are really headed on the wrong path {like I feel you are} & devalue them as People. My job as a Black community leader is to value our Black People, show empathy, mercy and sympathy. Act as much as I can in a dignified manner, and work for truth, decency, LOVe in the world for everyone, and make my existence less financially and emotionally stressful for myself and my LOVed ones and my family and close friends, including my new LOVer.   Sometimes these things are not easy to balance, but I Am thankful to God that She or He gave me such a job and that
now, after years of work and struggle, my life is beginning to make sense to me.  Slow down and surround yourelf with decent People. Kind People and LOVing Black People.  Eat right. Exercise. Listen to more of the Blues & Jazz traditions. Talk to and call some of your ole friends from Destiny’s Child. They would LOVe to hear from you. Call your Mom and talk for about an hour or two. Go visit the ole neighborhood. Don’t do any drugs at all, except what a very reasonable and decent and trusted Black doctor has prescribed for you. Stop reading about yourself in the newspapers. Stop watching what’s on TV. It is there to mislead and corrupt, not to teach like it should be. I can replace yur name and Jay Zee name in this letter with just about any other Black star who is out of control.  I would have to change the details, but the basic letter would be the same.  You don’t have to listen to me, but I AM here writing you this letter at a late hour for a real reason. You must take care of yourself because there are hundreds of little Black girls running around who LOVe you and would be devastated if anything bad happened to you. For God’s sakes I hope and Pray I have reached you and that you will even get some counseling and help if you and Jay Zee need it. This is something you will benefit from, not something you need because you are mentally ill. I Am not joking when I say I want you to feel free to call me if you need to or send me an e-mail. {I can be reached at 1 215 823 9985 or at BrotherTracy11@GMail.Com. You deserve better for yourself and Jay Zee and the sweet, precious baby of yours. Read some of my articles at http://ThePoliticsofReal.Blogspot.Com and let me know what you think. Some of those dance steps you do look very edgy, unkempt, wild and unnecessary. I know young People basically need to slow down also and think about the course they are on. God bless you and I Pray you will be able to listen to your inner self& your inner God because you are a valuable asset to the world, to the Black Community & to many other Black activists & Black leaders such as myself. You deserve better.  God Bless you & your family.    

 

Peace & Blessings,

Activist, Organizer, LOVer of Humanity.
