"Sell Out"- One who is compromising of one's integrity, morality and principles in exchange for money, 'success' (however defined) or other personal gain. It is commonly associated with attempts to increase mass appeal or acceptability to mainstream society. A person, who does this, as opposed to continuing along his or her original path, is labeled a sellout and typically disregarded. Selling out is often seen as fickle; gaining success at the price of lost credibility. Often times black Republicans are accused of being sell outs when in fact the true sell out are right here within our own black community. So who’s the real sell outs and why do we never call them on it its time to speak truth about the real sell outs to the race.
Recently Alfonso one of this blogs video contributors had this to say about the real sell outs.
“A black men that sells death in the form of drugs… that’s a sell out
“A black man that sells another black women on the street... that’s a sell out
“A black man that says he loves his black sisters so much yet knocks her up leaving her to raise the kid alone ...that’s a sell out.
“A rapper that parades its beautiful black sisters half naked on stage to a world audience in order to make a buck... now that’s a sell out.
Can anyone add anything else?
