I don’t have to make you trust me, you’ll gravitate to that on your own.
For hundreds of thousands of years Africula had seen men and women do all kind of stuff to test one another’s emotional reactions. He called them commitment tests. The tests often involved the concealment of a series of pre-manufactured situations and disingenuous circumstances which were designed to reveal the depth of the others commitment to the relationship. Based on everything other than the pursuit of truth and because of the emotional sensitivities of most of the people involved, the commitment tests more than not prevented open, honest organic feedback.
Why? It’s like restless relaxation. Karma produced bad vibes. Constructive yet somehow still bad advice. Because the person administering the test would then turn around in that same context of honest dishonesty and lecture Black Twitter or Tumblr about the urban virtues of honesty and transparency being vital to a successfully sustained relationship. It’s like they learned nothing or forgot everything they agreed with from the friendship and honesty gifted thesis of Girl Trip despite having seen the movie or its for emphasis clips multiple times.
Africula was listening to this song while making the above entry.
