Over Self-Importance: Divisive and Destructive

Black folks, in a racist society that devalues us we must psychologically have an appropriate sense of self-esteem and self-confidence to be a self-determining people. 

Regarding self-confidence it is a feeling of self-assurance that comes from an appreciation of our abilities or qualities that is not condescending.

In our interpersonal relations with each other a lot of us have a negative twisted egotistical confidence ‘arrogance’ characterized by having an exaggerated sense of our importance 'swag' that fosters Black-on-Black conflicts, violence, and murders. 

Yes there is white supremacy that we must check but there is also a sense of superiority amongst each other in various forms that must be checked too!
