The Mindset of Niggas; Reaching the Unreachable

by Natosha Lewis

In far too many communities across America it is a badge of honor to be called a “Nigga.” If you live in the inner city and you are not known as a “thug-ass Nigga,” you have no street credibility. If you have a job, attend school, get good grades and speak properly, you are most likely not heavily regarded, rather viewed as a square. A person with no street credibility gets no respect. To have respect is what one gets when he is getting paper (money), hoes or bitches. Sadly enough, too many young and old people alike will spend their entire inner city and incarcerated life attaining to be a Nigga, who gets much street credibility.

People will be offended, outraged and I’m sure a few protests, boycotts, marches and rallies will occur in response to this title. Great! The goal has been achieved. It is hoped that people are angered so much so that they do something that will evoke a positive change in the culture that all too often identifies themselves as Niggas. Oddly enough, read to find out who is considered the unreachable.



Candide

by Voltaire

The grand narrative of the Enlightenment, usually recounted and understood in terms of progress and modernity, generally appears as a simplified evolution from the trappings of superstition, feudalism, and everything “irrational” to a world more similar to today’s world. Alongside the Renaissance, the Enlightenment is credited for the transition to an adherence to reason, secularism, and promotion of values such as individual and collective freedom and liberty. At the heart of the movement in France was François-Marie Arouet, better known by the pen name Voltaire, whose voluminous writings advocated for greater liberalism, including the freedom of religion and the separation of church and state. In addition to the classic Candide, Voltaire was a biting polemic whose satirical attacks on the Catholic Church were among the fiercest of his day. He also understood the risks he was taking with these writings, at one point explaining, “It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong.”

The Enlightenment is looked upon fondly, and it serves to reinforce the notion that the present is superior to the past, but things did not change as rapidly or as completely as many believe. In fact, some recent historians have challenged the belief that the Enlightenment was responsible for the French Revolution, which is a vital issue when it comes to Voltaire. After all, Voltaire, as his contemporaries and as most of his modern readers know him, is widely regarded as the pinnacle of Enlightenment thought, the symbol of the era of reason, and the harbinger of modern values. In that regard, his work is often considered to be the backbone of the French Revolution, which began about a decade after his death. Voltaire was unquestionably monumental, but he was also an exceptional product of his age, and his writings can introduce readers to the broader picture of the Enlightenment as a sum of contrasting and varied forces, tendencies and events.

Voltaire’s most famous work was Candide, featuring a young man named Candide who lives a sheltered life in paradise being indoctrinated by his optimist mentor, Pangloss. Candide quits the lifestyle, becoming gradually disillusioned with the world as he sees others’ hardships. Candide is humorous and sarcastic, satirizing events like the Seven Years War and the Lisbon Earthquake in 1755. Candide ridicules religion, theologians, governments, the military, philosophies, and philosophers like Leibniz. Candide is widely acknowledged as one of the most important works in the West.
