Inflammatory Language

 

 

 

When you speak, do you use the word Nigger? How? In greeting? In jest? In regular conversation? And…since rappers say it ALL THE TIME, whites want to know why they can’t say it.

From the Latin word, “Niger” it meant, literally, black. How “nigger” came to be the epithet that it became…no one really knows. There are speculations that it was used as a nickname of the original word Nigrum/Negra/Noir and then used as an insult circa 1920-1930’s as the word we all know today.

Never has a word in the English language sparked such raw emotions and lead to heated debates, passionate violence, the Civil Rights Movement and affection towards the black family.

Listen to this:

Now this:

Knowing the origin of the word why do some blacks refer to themselves as niggers? Do you feel that it’s politically correct to use the phrase “the N word” to sugarcoat the vileness of the actual written word? Why is this word so important to AmeriKlan and thusly the world? And why does it spark rage, violence and brotherhood? If the power was removed from the word, do you think it would still have the same effect?

And, what is the difference between nigga and nigger? Don’t they basically mean the same thing? Moreover, who exactly would you consider a “nigger”?

Any thoughts?

The Conversation We Need to Have

 

 

Given the recent shootings by white males, James Holmes and Wade Michael Page amongst others, it would seem that AmeriKlan is in desperate need of a long overdue conversation pertaining to white male anger. Many, like myself, may feel that white, Christian, heterosexual males have naught to be angry about but given the rise of hate groups and mass shootings, I would surmise the contrary.

If anyone in the world has the right to be ranting and screaming irate, it’s the black man. I sincerely doubt that anyone who is HONEST will say otherwise. Yet, even within the confines of unemployment, the prison system that beguiles him and the police that literally become wet with desire for a bullet to penetrate his flesh, he finds a way to persevere.

Why are white males so angry?

What’s wrong? What could be wrong? Why are whites itching for this “race war” and doing everything in their power to ignite the flames? And why are black/ brown/ red/ yellow people of all countries turning the other cheek? Why aren’t we giving in? What does this say about our morality Vs.  theirs? And why is NO ONE acknowledging that?

This is one conversation that I welcome ALL peoples of every colour, every religion, every walk of life, especially WHITE MALES, to join in. I’m asking you to tell us what’s going on. Because frankly, we just don’t know anymore.

****This will be an honest, open, adult soul-searching discussion. If you are a troll and bring up bullshit black crime statistics, I’ll ban you****

The Niggerization of Watermelon

The watermelon is a vine-like flowering plant originating from Southern Africa. It is in the same family as squashes, cucumbers, pumpkins and gourds. Today, the Chinese are the largest producers of the fruit. Since the watermelon has traveled from Africa to Asia to Europe, then the Americas, it can be said that the fruit is universally eaten and enjoyed. With its high Vitamin A and C content, the watery fruit ( approx 90% ) is nutritious and delicious and helps strengthen the immune system and lower high blood pressure.

When did this summer fruit, enjoyed by all, become the stereotype of black people?

No one really knows. Some black scholars think it began in the rural south where watermelon, grown to be plentiful, were eaten to cool the parched throats of the Field Negroes. Others think it’s mostly a “southern food” like macaroni and cheese. Some believe that it didn’t matter if whites, including the Irish, who were indentured slaves and NOT considered white at the time, as well as blacks both ate them equally; anything could and was utilized in the defamation of blacks. This stereotype just stuck…and became wildly popular.

Today, the stereotype of the watermelon is everywhere:

to perhaps the most offensive:

This was taken shortly after Barack Obama won the presidency.

And to mock black athletes running for their own country:

Why is this stereotype offensive?

1. Personally, I don’t know. Being from another country, we grow all our own food. So eating melons, mangoes, yams, etc, is necessary for our survival. Even my relatives that lived  in the UK and the AmeriKlan south grew food.

2. Perhaps it implies indigence?

3. Since the Chinese are indeed the biggest distributors of the controversial fruit but they do not get stereotyped for it, it tells me that this is nothing more than an attack on Blackness.

4. There are no authentic “studies” that show that blacks eat an overwhelming amount of watermelon than any other race. In fact, there is no honest “food evidence” that shows that certain races eat more “X” than any other race. Example: Rice was long believed to be Chinese. That is a fallacy based on ignorance. Rice came from Africa. The Asians grow rice farms in the same manner the Africans did.

5. My personal belief: I find any food that fights disease and cancers and acts as a diuretic, to lower high blood pressure, that is “racialized” is quite bizarre.  I think racism/ white supremacy will use a sheet of paper as a weapon to hurt anyone they deem inferior. So the watermelon stereotype is just another tool to do so.

6. As a black woman in medicine, I urge all African peoples to eat more melons (watch out if you are diabetic). High in vitamins, fruit and vegetables will contribute to a longer life span and more resistance to disease. Our ancestors lived off of them for centuries so why shouldn’t we?

Any thoughts on this bizarre phenomena?

How Little Black Girls Learn to Hate Themselves

Look at this and tell me if you had one growing up:

Barbie Collector 2012 Holiday Doll

Chances are, you did. And so did I. Mine was called Ice Princess Barbie and she was beautiful. Long, golden hair, a pretty glittery dress with little white ice skates. I remember going to our favourite store, Woolworth’s, to find another doll that resembled me. There was none. (And, please, Cabbage Patch Dolls do not count). Later, with the demand for more realistic dolls for coloured girls, Mattel, in their graciousness, made this:

Now, allow me to point something out. Black Barbie looks STRIKINGLY similar to WHITE Barbie, no? As if the only way black women are to be recognized and created by an esteemed doll factory, we must be white-looking…but dipped in chocolate. When we complained, yet again, they shut us up by making her:

*deep sigh*

What messages does that send to little black girls in AmeriKlan, who are ALREADY beginning to realize that something is amiss?

1. That this country’s standard of beauty does not include you.

2. That AmeriKlan hates dark skin, round noses, full lips, coarse hair…which is everything that makes you who you are.

3. That in order to have a dollmaker realize that you even exist (40 million of us) you must look like a facsimile of a white counterpart…but with a skin hue that’s “not too dark” so whites won’t get offended. Therefore, my friends, this is not about you…it’s about pleasing them. The mind-fuck is relentless. It begins at an early age and lasts well into adulthood. That’s why so many black women hate themselves, feel unworthy of being loved, tolerate abuse from lovers and wear that hurt like a “chip on their shoulders.” By the way, this too is apart of “The Plan.” Self hate will take the lives of more blacks than the master’s whip and gun any day of the week.

Which brings me to my point: I personally do not care for Mr. Disney’s innocent female characters. He began to perpetuate the white damsel in distress since about 1937 with Snow White eagerly awaiting a kiss from her prince to bring her back to life. This too messes with the psyche of little white girls…but for now, I will focus on my people. Let me ask you something. And before you answer…just take a hard, long look at this picture:

Now look at this one:

Ok….take a minute to study both pictures.

Call me crazy( some already do ) but the Evil Queen, drawn in darker colours, a black cape, red-black lipstick and dark blue eye shadow, wants to murder a young girl, who is deemed prettier, so she can be “fairest in the land.” What subliminal message is this giving out to black and white girls? That “darker” women are envious of them, want what they have and wish to see harm come their way. See any similarities between 1937…and today’s world? I do.

More than you know…which brings me to my second point.

When I hear the tale of a white girl who threw acid in her own face and blamed a black woman who said, “Hey, pretty girl, want something to drink?”

And AmeriKlan begins to search frantically for this “evil black fiend”, which had many black women who sport a short-cropped hair-do to hide for fear of death or prison…only to realize that it was a lie to begin with…only to have the media turn around and comfort HER due to the fact that she suffers from a condition called “body dysmorphic disorder”…only to have everyone shrug it off and pretend that racism wasn’t a part of this…I sit back and think, again, about “The Plan.” Ask yourself this: Why was it so easy for everyone to believe that a black woman could do this? Because that’s how black women are portrayed in the world. Ugly. Devious. Envious of whites. And vengeful.

And we wonder why little black girls run to daddy and ask, “Am I ugly? What’s wrong with me?” For the sake of our children’s future and their sanity, please buy them dolls and action figures that look like us…if possible made by us. If we don’t break this chain of sickness, it may last another 400 years.

Black vs Black…In The Workplace

{This will be apart of an ongoing series exploring the dynamics of black relationships}

If you have brown skin, you know just how hard it is in the workplace. Since the powers that be never hire more than a certain number of us, except in food service and housekeeping, we must work twice as hard to be considered half as competent. Perhaps the most baffling thing about the black psyche is the way we relate and treat one another. I understand why whites hate us. It’s apart of who they are. But black animosity is quite stunning.

Take my friend X. As a SUNY graduate, she is smart as a whip, thin, model beautiful and hated amongst her black constituents. X is an overachiever. And proud of it. She comes from a long line of overachievers and knows the value of working her fingers to the  bone. X calls me to tell me the most heartbreaking thing a black person can hear; that the other black women on her job are trying to destroy her. Let’s examine this:

Whites have no conscience when it comes to making money. If they did, slavery would have never have happened.

I’ve seen whites invite someone over for a barbecue, play a round of golf with them, invite them to little Susie’s birthday party on Sunday afternoon…and on Monday morning, walk in with a Starbucks cup of coffee in their hands, go into the boardroom and slit that person’s throat over the MacKenzie Proposal…all without batting an eyelash.

For whites, money comes first over civility. For whites, it’s business as usual. For whites…no hard feelings, it’s just apart of Survival of the Fittest.

But for blacks…Ahhhh…..not only is it personal but the fact that the attack was administered by a fellow African makes it downright unforgiveable. Let’s examine why this occurs:

1. Knowing that there can only be but one black person at the top, this frenzy…this burning need encourages severe competition. Whites make the rules on how many black people they can hire, yes folks, the quota is real, and knowing this, we will fight tooth and nail to have a little slice of the “white-flavoured pie.” Even if the white pie is poisonous to our souls and distances us from our black family, the desire to be amongst the white elite will take precedence. Sorry folks, I know he’s your hero, but I never really cared for him:

2. Being a product of the white master’s competitive and inhumane ways, we view ourselves as an individual instead of a collective whole. Therefore only our needs count. Only our individual outcome is important. Selfishness becomes apart of our existence. Since you and you alone had to work 2 jobs to get where you are, why can’t other blacks do the same? They’re just lazy. Dumb. And Ignorant. If you pushed and made it, why can’t they? And why should you be responsible for the entire black race?

3. You genuinely hate other black people and wish to see them fail. I know this sounds farfetched but it’s an unfortunate reality. I’ve met a few blacks who hate other blacks. Of course this is the ultimate form of self-hate but it does exist. The thought that a black person will rise to power makes them uneasy. They are accustomed to taking orders from whites who are better suited to be in a position of authority. And a black person, no matter how qualified, can’t “measure up.” Since historically blacks have been subjugated by whites, having a black person in power warrants disrespect and a lackadaisical attitude. When a white boss tells you to get that report done ASAP and you’ll jump to get it done, a black manager isn’t a threat to your job due to the fact that you both come from the “same place.”

What are your thoughts on this phenomenon?

Since this will be an ongoing series, the comments will no doubt be brutal. But I urge all of you to speak honestly.

10 Things Hurricane Katrina Taught Me

1. AmeriKlan doesn’t give a flying fuck about black people.

2. Bush is more dangerous, sick, evil and wicked than we realize.

3. White people will use any excuse to kill, maim, rape and abuse black people.

4. Katrina was premeditated. Look it up. (9th ward only? C’mon!)

5. If Katrina happened in my neighbourhood, my life and my family’s life would be in grave danger.

6. FEMA is a farce. ( They will help to implement martial law )

7. You CANNOT believe anything the media tells you.

8. The AmeriKlan government creates “situations” for the purpose of depopulation. Swine Flu, anyone?

9. Imagine the sickest, most deviant, evilest, vilest depraved being on earth. Racist Whites are sicker than that.

10. The media will murder any witnesses that dares to speak the truth.

What did Katrina teach/tell you?

Is Reverse Racism Real?

When I hear whites crying about their plight in this New AmeriKlan, I stop and take notice. When I hear wealthy white men and women pointing out how unfair this country is for them, I stop and listen…desperately…for them to tell me how.

“Ohhhhh…you can’t possibly understand how hard it is to be white nowadays! I’m the victim here…you know, with all this reverse racism against white folks! It’s not fair….*sobbing* ….It’s not right!”

What’s a sister to do? So I open my mouth and say…

Ummm, excuse me, sir? There’s no such thing.”

*sobbing stops and the hate stare begins*

The very system of white supremacy dictates who can and cannot be victims.

Whites, since the beginning, have self-segregated from the undesirable other. It is because of that self proclaimed privilege that they are able to oppress others, discriminate against others, scapegoat others whilst elevating themselves to supreme status. Now, with the “browning” of AmeriKlan, along with a black guy for president, whites are feeling more threatened than ever.

On the basis of race, creed and skin colour, non-whites are claiming certain privileges once reserved for whites, i.e. affirmative action. Which begs the question:

Is reverse racism real and if so how?

Open Discussion #1

Last night, after a heated discussion about one of my posts, I realized that we Coloureds need to air out our frustrations about this crazy world we’re living in. A simple topic lead to hurt feelings which is counterproductive to our struggle. We are family. All of us. If we took a DNA test, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that we are blood relations.

I personally do not like arguing with my people. I find it fruitless. So, I’m going to start an open discussion post every so often so we can talk about whatever is on our minds. Since we all live so spread out from each other…one poster isn’t even in North America, I can’t organize my people the way I’d like, so let’s do it this way. I find that talking, asking for help and seeking advise is the best way to heal from living in a supremacist society. I’ll keep this post up for a few days to let everyone have a turn.

So on this page, nothing is off limits, but there are rules:

1. No disrespect / hate of our people. NO name calling.

2. Everyone must help one another with plausible and reasonable solutions.

3. Speak honestly and openly about what’s troubling us.

4. We must promote education and spiritual healing through books, movies, documentaries( Mickey, you are awesome!!! ) and research.

Soooo……I’ll go first:

I went to main street the other day and saw this little girl, probably around 14 or 15, with low-slung pants and a thong showing above her waistband! I stopped to stare at her. I thought to myself, at that age, if I had worn that, my mama would’ve whooped my black ass.

What’s going on with our kids, people?

The Great White Hope

Look at this couple:

Notice a trend? I’m seeing a lot of good-looking, well-to-do, black men who date, consistently, obese white women. I never really paid attention to this phenomenon. In fact, I really don’t give a shit. It was my friend X, that I went to visit in NYC, that called it to my attention. We were strolling along Washington Square Park, looking at the jugglers and the break dancers, when she said, “Hey…look there…another one.” Another what, I wondered?

Another brother with his fat, white girlfriend. Boy, they don’t even care anymore to go for the pretty, white girls…as long as she’s white, they’ll bow down and grab her. Self-hating Negro.”  I stopped gobbling my Mango Gelato, turned and looked at her in slow motion and wondered if she was correct. Hmmm…maybe she’s on to something here. I have seen this plenty of times before but didn’t really stop to think about it. Why do some black men date and marry obese white women? This is seldom seen in the world of celebrities. Rich, good-looking black men will only date slender, blonde, stunningly good-looking white women. Some theories as to why:

1. Self hatred is a funny thing. When you,  a black man, look into the eyes of your black woman, you’ll see every fear, hope, disappointment and sorrow life has to offer. After all, she is the other half of your Negro self. A white woman has the ability to make you feel “better” about being unemployed, broke, dark-skinned, having prominent features and being uneducated. She is your “insurance” that someday you, the black man, will be accepted into white high society. Being with her elevates you to that “other level” you’ve been striving for your whole life.

2. An obese and unattractive white woman is considered to be amongst the dregs of white society. Her own white man will not have her. She, in her need to be adored, chooses the one man who is desperate enough to adore her simply for the colour of her skin and his own insecurities.

3. When a wealthy black man has “made it“, a black woman is no longer considered to be on his “level“. He must do as they do, walk as they walk and have what they have if he is to be on the same playing field.

4. They are, in simple terms, in love.

Now, I don’t believe that every black man who prefers white women does this out of hate for his black women. There are many reasons why this occurs. Preference may be one of them. I asked a black male friend once why he likes blondes. His answer was, ” Truth, why do you like pistachio ice cream?” I answered, ” Because…I just do.” His response, ” Same here.”

What are your thoughts?

How AmeriKlan Manipulates Whites

Do you know someone like this? White, male, heterosexual, middle-class, employed and full of rage? And does he by any chance watch this…?

You might be thinking, “That Truthbetold sure done lost it now!”

Remember my post entitled The Plan? Well, there is another plan…but for white folks. Being invisible and a lowly Negress, no one has any expectations from me. So they never see me coming. I see right through the lies and bullshit that the media tells white folks to stir them into a racial panic. I usually write from a black perspective…brutal, raw and honest. But, being honest is a two-way street and I need to understand how white AmeriKlan comes to their conclusions, the reason why they think the way they do and why they CHOOSE to hold on to the obvious lies. So here goes.

Slavery was a bad thing. I think everyone, except for Donald Trump and Rush Limbaugh agrees on that.

When slavery ended, poison seeped into the souls of white folks everywhere. They knew, spiritually, that what they had done was wrong. Guilt, my friends, is a motherfucker. Denial begat Guilt. Rage begat Denial. And Projection is the ultimate coping mechanism. Whites, like blacks, are sick. But their sickness does not come from the pain of loss. It comes from the emptiness of greed. In order to live with that shallow feeling in the pit of their stomachs, in order to live with that uneasiness they feel whilst looking at our brown faces, in order to sleep, live and thrive in a society built on the destruction and the rape of another man’s soul, they lied to THEMSELVES that this mess is “all our fault“. That is how White Victimhood is born. It is out of their very own need to survive in their own system of white supremacy, that the white mind becomes deviant and falls prey to supremacist propaganda.

Why does this matter in modern-day AmeriKlan? Because we, humans, are like sponges. We soak up every glance, every slight, every unkind word, every imagery, every thing that has the potential to shape who we are and what we will become. This feeling of insignificance is burned into our brains from childhood and has a direct effect on how we will function as adults. When white AmeriKlan watches Faux News or any other program designed for brainwashing them, they begin to believe:

1. All blacks are bad therefore the slaughter of blacks is justified.

2. In order for AmeriKlan to be “safe” blacks and Muslims need to leave.

3. Mexicans are taking their jobs.

4. The black man is “holding them down”.

5. The black man wants your woman.

6. Black women are ugly and useless.

7. Blacks are milking the system with welfare.

8. Obama is a racist, socialist, Muslim, anti-American born in “another exotic country”.

9. All blacks want revenge for slavery.

10. Forget that the most atrocious crimes in this country is committed by whites and focus on the suspicious “others.”

This causes a neurotransmitter called epinephrine (adrenaline) to rush to the brain causing the “flight or fight” response I simply call severe anxiety. With a pounding heart, they have now lost the ability to think, reason and rationalize. That underlying fear, which they will never admit, is that they will lose their “white privilege.” Whites are perhaps the most cowardly race on the planet. Not due to the fact that they back away from a fight, history will tell you that they DO NOT, but from the fact that admitting the truth is their worst nightmare.

Faux News is brilliant in their propaganda! Disguised as “patriotic”, they use this country’s Puritanical value system coupled with white AmeriKlan’s need to believe that they are indeed moral, to convince whites that we, blacks,  are in desperate need of extermination. Hence the anger. Hence the anxiety. Hence the paranoia. Hence the need to buy more guns. Hence the need to assassinate Obama. Hence the need to shoot an unarmed black person. Get the idea?

The thing that amuses me is, why can’t they see it? Most blacks know, almost intrinsically, that AmeriKlan is still a nation of slaves in the form of “hard-working Americans.”  That’s why no matter how many hours you work…you’re still broke. That’s why no matter how much you take your Prozac…you’re still depressed. That’s why no matter how much you’ve saved to buy that first house…you’re still paying rent. And that’s why no matter how close you think you’ve come to defeating this system of supremacy…it morphs into a new unfathomable shape.

This country has a brainwashing method I like to call: “virtual Kool-Aid” ( yes, I just made that up ). All you need to do is sit back and let others tell you what to think. And if they can use statistics to prove that it’s “the truth”…even better.

And for the record…sugar, like Kool-Aid, is a tool used to cause depression which renders deep thinkers…useless. That’s why Kool-Aid and Hi-C Fruit Punch are not permitted in my home. To defeat this system, we need clear thinkers and that’s why I no longer watch TV or read the papers.

Random Thoughts This Sunday…

Last night, before I went to sleep, I read the bible. The Book of Revelations to be exact. Now, I’m not a very religious person but I am deeply spiritual. And I do believe in a Higher Power. Whenever I’m troubled and need the understanding of this strange world we live in as black folks, I read the bible.

My favourite book is the book of Job. I liken my experiences to Job but on a lesser scale. I’ve lost loved ones, had a house fire and nearly lost my life ( NO ONE can explain with reason how I survived, including the fire marshal ), had deep heartbreak, lost my job when my medical agency closed, been hungry and had a mental break, which I may add, opened my eyes to amazing clarity.  Sometimes when I look at the sky, I can almost feel the changes in the wind, the smell of the air, the taste of the diminishing quality of the food and sense the desperation of my brothers and sisters.

Being born a woman of my grandmother’s soul, I’m deeply empathetic. I pick up on the feelings of others and if I’m not careful, I internalize them and begin to fall into myself. Living in AmeriKlan, in brown skin, traps me in ways I can never articulate. I want to scream but have no voice…so I write to purge myself and acquire some form of sanity.

Last night, in the quietness of my burnt-orange coloured bedroom, I snuggled up with my favourite blanket and let myself imagine with utmost honesty and fright, what is going on in the world. Why we are suffering so much and filled with depression and anger. It was then that the Spirit told me to read the Book of Revelations…so I did:

Revelations Chapter 13

13:1  Then I stood on the sand of the sea. I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads. On his horns were ten crowns, and on his heads, blasphemous names.
13:2  The beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
13:3  One of his heads looked like it had been wounded fatally. His fatal wound was healed, and the whole earth marveled at the beast.
13:4  They worshiped the dragon, because he gave his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
13:5  A mouth speaking great things and blasphemy was given to him. Authority to make war for forty-two months was given to him.
13:6  He opened his mouth for blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his dwelling, those who dwell in heaven.
13:7  It was given to him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. Authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation was given to him.
13:8  All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been killed.
13:9  If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
13:10  If anyone has captivity, he will go. If anyone is with the sword, he must be killed. Here is the endurance and the faith of the saints.
13:11  I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon.
13:12  He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. He makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.
13:13  He performs great signs, even making fire come down out of the sky to the earth in the sight of people.
13:14  He deceives my own people who dwell on the earth because of the signs he was granted to do in front of the beast; saying to those who dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who had the sword wound and lived.
13:15  It was given to him to give breath to it, to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as wouldn’t worship the image of the beast to be killed.
13:16  He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads;
13:17  and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name.
13:18  Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is six hundred sixty-six.

Now what does that all mean? My interpretation:

The beast: Society

The sea: Nations or large groups of people

Speaking great things and blasphemy: Lying to the people and brainwashing them to have control. If you can make any large group of people believe that their neighbour is the enemy whilst using them for your own purposes…mission accomplished.

13:7: Speaks volumes without me having to say one word.

The life of the Lamb: All that believe in Christ/ Goodness/ Fairness/ Equality

13:9 …let him hear: Listen and understand to what society is telling you directly and indirectly. They mean it.

13:10 My absolute favourite! I read this over and over to gain patience and understanding. I believe the saying goes: As ye sow, so shall ye reap!

The rest of this passage, for me anyway, deals with the lying, deceit and enslavement of God’s children for power and profit.

13:16 and 13:17 deals with the mark of the beast. Did you know that during slavery, it was not uncommon for slavemaster’s to “brand” their slaves much like the way you brand your cows? That “mark” meant you were their property.

As I descend further and further into my African roots and learn the history of this country and what was done to my people, I vacillate between rage, pity, contempt and forgiveness. I know deep down whites are just as burdened as we are by their sins. They wear the heavy strain of guilt and shame like a thick cloak wrapped around their shoulders. That’s why denial is such a potent defense mechanism. We wear our depression, anger and resentment on our sleeves and faces. To be frank, I pity them. Honestly. For they have lost all humanity with the ghosts of ancestors past.

Wise As An Owl

I’ve been working on this post for a while now. I deleted it. Then rewrote it. It’s ridiculous, really, but it needs to be said. Since whites in AmeriKlan…

SIMPLY.

CANNOT.

HEAR.

ANYTHING.

Bad about themselves from a black person, God made Tim Wise. If you don’t know Tim J. Wise, let me tell you a few things about this fellow:

He’s a white anti-racist scholar….or so he claims. He’s a southerner. He’s an author and an orator that speaks about whiteness and its supremacist machinations in AmeriKlan. He’s trained companies and law enforcement officials on how to undo racial practices in the workforce( which we blacks know only teaches them how to be MORE racist and get away with it ). And he’s esteemed, well-spoken, highly educated and thought to be “One of the most brilliant, articulate and courageous critics of white privilege in the nation.”

“Tim Wise is one of the few people, along with perhaps Frederick Douglass, who has ever really spoken honestly and forcefully to white people about themselves…” —Charles Ogletree, Professor of Law, Harvard Law School; Director, Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice

“(Wise’s) work is revolutionary, and those who react negatively are simply afraid of hearing the truth…” —Robin D.G. Kelley, Professor of History, University of Southern California, author of Race Rebels, and Yo’ Mama’s Disfunktional!

I’ve noticed a few things about the white mind while traveling across this country. Most whites in this society are monolithic. They act, speak and think the exact same things. That’s why say, in Vermont, I can hear the same conversation with two white women that I hear in say, Michigan. White supremacy has prepped them from birth on how to be the same..think the same…eat the same…shop in all the same stores…much like The Borg. With supremacy, sameness is key. Since I no longer speak to or have relations with whites lest I go mad, I wonder who will converse with them regarding The Problem with No Name?” (Folks, if you haven’t read my post yet, please do.)

Wise, a white scholar, says EXACTLY the same things blacks have been saying for centuries, in fact he himself even says that he is NOT saying anything new. Yet when he speaks, a hush falls over the crowd and they hang onto his every word in adoration. In fact, with his old southern-like, preacher-ish way of speaking, he reminds me of the Baptist ministers I knew in church. Please listen to an excerpt:

Wise, ever so eloquently, explained to an “educated” white man why only blacks can call each other “niggers.” The man, in his desperate need to understand this “problem with no name” was transfixed. I found the whole thing riveting. And extremely amusing. I began to wonder why is Mr. Tim Wise the voice to be heard regarding the “complicated issue of race in AmeriKlan?”

My Supposition:

1. Whites don’t want to hear a black person tell them anything about racism for fear of being blamed for it. Remember, whites in AmeriKlan are good, decent, moral, Puritanical Christians (excuse me while I cough). Getting blamed for something that happened a really, really, really long time ago forces them to deal with their sickness called racism. And it also forces them to answer for the sins of perpetuating this supremacist society directly or indirectly, with the most detrimental of all actions: silence and acceptance. Who wants to swallow that medicine?

2. Whites only believe what other whites tell and teach them. This is the foundation of racism in and of itself. But don’t tell them that. That’s why only white people can teach other white people about racism. Please see example #1.

3. Mr. Wise, a white man, will “break it to them gently” using lengthy, multi-syllabic words while a black person will just say it “like it is”. This matters greatly to them. The way you say something is more important than what you say.

4. Wise, who shares their skin, doesn’t pose as a threat to their whiteness.

5. Because blacks are considered scary to converse with it. See Example #1.

6. Because blacks are still considered inferior, low-class, dumb and nothing can be learned from the black man.

Why is this a problem, you ask? Why even write this post? Because Mr. Wise, in his alleged “goodness” has taken on the White Man’s Burden Syndrome…for white people. This burden, given to them by The Almighty, compels them to be the omniscient beings they were born to be. In order for whites to understand the pathology of their illness, they need to be confronted with it. Head on. We’re not children. Blacks had no choice but to confront racial hatred head on so why should whites be coddled?

They know EXACTLY what this “problem with no name” is. They know every single time they look at our brown faces…and glance away. They know when they feel the need to stop talking whenever we enter the room. They know when they are fearful of saying the “wrong things” and upsetting us. And they know every time an incident occurs because of racism and they try, oh so desperately to convince us, “See? It happened to me too!” I don’t buy the bullshit! And neither should you!

In fact, my awakening has lead me to believe that white supremacy intentionally created Mr. Wise as a distraction to Amos Wilson, Dr. Welsing and Neely Fuller. If I’ve learned one thing about the system of white supremacy, that thing is this:

White people will do just about anything to remain supreme.

Blackaholics Anonymous

Hi. My name is Chad and I’m addicted to black people.”

Hi Chad!”

I secretly envy them. Watch “black” movies, try to walk like them, dress like them, act like them…and it’s ruining my life!”

Do you know someone like Chad? A well-to-do white ( or working-class ) person who fits this description? I do. I work with a “Chad” and between snickering at him, looking at him with utter amazement and wondering what happened, I decided to explore why Chad left the cushy world of argyles and fisherman’s sweaters for chains, backwards hats and a dialect that even the most “street” black person finds amusing.

I went to public school. That means I saw all kinds of kids from all backgrounds. But the ones that stuck out most in my mind was the white child who wanted to fit in with the black kids. He wanted this so desperately, he grew dreadlocks, began to listen to 2 live crew, got an earring( the most potent form of rebellion back in the day ), cut class and started smoking. He also began to desire black women. And not just any black woman but the darkest black woman he could find. I began to wonder where this was coming from….

In college, the same phenomenon occurred; especially with the lust for dark-skinned women. Then it dawned on me. Whites have convinced themselves, through their own white supremacy, that they have no culture, no indigenous food, no “real music” ( Johnny Cash and Elvis don’t count since they were heavily influenced by black singers ), no dance ( Polka apparently isn’t popular with youngsters ) and thusly, no identity. They wanted to be apart of something “cool”, fresh, new, exciting and taboo. And in white supremacist AmeriKlan, what could be more exciting, taboo and popular than the culture of blacks? Forbidden fruit is always sweetest. I tried to understand how this affinity for black culture came about. After all, aren’t we inferior beings? We’re always told that we are the lowest form of humans on earth and how no self-respecting white person could ever desire to be black. So what gives?

Black mystery has always been apart of the white conscience. We are deemed suave, great dancers, sensual( this is both good and bad ) athletic but also unintelligent, slow, inept and downtrodden. Why would an alleged race of “superior” people want to aspire to be like us? Because white society, the rulers, can pick apart all the good within any culture, apply it to themselves for their betterment whilst pointing out why that very culture is beneath them. Case in point? Look at this:

And this:

Both are white women with  typical “black” features. We were given these assets, yes, I made a pun, from God. On us, it’s deemed disgusting, unkempt, unattractive….On them, it’s a “phenomenon”…white women EVERYWHERE want the “Kim Look“. Uhhhhhh….excuse me? What is the “Kim Look” exactly? Curvaceousness? Didn’t black women write the book on curves?

And that’s why when a certain movie star had this look, AmeriKlan went crazy:

****sigh****

People, after observing this out in the open, (and remember, I am invisible so people say and do certain things right in front of me) I decided that white society depends on blacks for more than just touchdowns. We are a necessary part of their own self discovery. For Example: without Buddy Guy, B.B. King and Muddy Waters…Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart and Stevie Ray Vaughan wouldn’t be the superstars they are today. And that’s only show business. Imagine if we tapped into food, art, dance, literature, dialect and clothing? I’d be typing for days…

AmeriKlan’s Free Labour System

My brothers and sisters, do not be fooled. Prison was created for a reason. The answer? Free Labour.

I don’t need to tell you about our past as slaves, the ridiculous taxes that they knew we couldn’t pay once (physical)slavery ended and the police that collaborated with the court system to arrest us for the slightest infraction, a thing called “Black Tax“…we already touched on that. What I want to discuss today is the way it currently operates. Under the very clever cloak of “planting evidence” by the police, racial profiling and the bribes that the judges get, the prison system is a booming business. And the longer the sentences, the greater the payoff per “head count.” Privatized prisons make even more money per “head.” Which is why strict policing and irredeemable punishment is encouraged in predominately black neighbourhoods.

Free labour, A.K.A. slavery is illegal. Not illegal in the sense that it does not happen, it does…it’s illegal on paper, for show and tell. AmeriKlan is a country that is prideful of its own magnificence. Never mind the killing, raping, stealing, cheating and utter hypocrisy, that is unimportant. What is important, however, is AmeriKlan’s wealth. Free labour helped whites to buy that wonderful Victorian home with the gingerbread moulding, on 100 acres with the white picket fence. Free labour helped whites to open businesses that enabled their children to go to the best schools. Free labour helped whites to build communities, built by us, that we were not allowed to live in, so they could self segregate from the savage that sought to rape their daughters. And free labour helped older whites to pass on literally, billions of dollars to their spawn so that, they too could live comfortably in the country that we built.

Today, in this glorious nation, free labour is called The Prison System. When a black/brown man gets caught with a Mary Jane cigarette or baggie and is sentenced to 20 years in prison, while a white teenager is let off with a “stern warning”, you must ask yourself a serious question. What’s going on? When a black man steals a pair of shoes( I’m NOT excusing bad behaviour) and gets life imprisonment and a young white girl, a la Winona Ryder, gets 100 hours of community service, you must ask your self, what’s going on? Well let me tell you.

Money is being made by contracting, code word for EXPLOITING, the free labour that is provided by the inmates to Big Business. Yes, Big Business, like Wall Street. In simple terms, corporate stockholders rely on inmates to grow rich. Since I don’t belive anything that is written and published by the FBI/Department of Justice concerning us, I will not quote too many statistics. You know your favorite pair of Brand Name shoes? Chances are it may have been sewn by an inmate. And the pretty bird house that adorns your backyard that says, “Made proudly in the USA?”…It may have come from Riker’s Island. What is the net worth for the exploitation of my people by Fortune 500 companies…? Again, I hate statistics but somewhere in the 950 million range. A YEAR.

2. Microsoft(Yes, Mr. Gates…we’re on to you)

3. Revlon (Who advertises “white beauty” via the media. Another brainwashing tool)

4. Macy’s (Christmas time is big business. Incarceration increases when you don’t have money for gifts)

5. AT &T(Big Brother is always watching and listening)

6. Target

7. Dell…and many, many more…

Does this remind you of anything? Think hard…Nazi Germany with the concentration camps and forced labour comes to my mind. What about yours??? It seems the more things change, the more they remain the same. Another aspect to consider in this diabolical scheme. When the primary breadwinner is incarcerated, the family is left to fend for themselves in terms of food, rent/mortgage, bills, schooling, clothing and life lessons on how to survive. They will, having been exposed to this trauma, will be MORE likely to follow in the footsteps of the incarcerated parent. Broken homes begat broken children. Broken children begat a broken system. A broken system will lead to future generations of “Free Labour.”

Which, my brothers, is all apart of…”The Plan.”

Young White Rage

When the Columbine massacre occurred, white AmeriKlan sat back in horrified wonder at how something so heinous could happen in their quiet community. In a country, like this one, that actually believes its own magnificence, you have those that feel safe and secure in their middle class suburban communities…for white supremacy teaches ALL OF US that bad things do not happen with others that look like you. Fear comes from the “exotic”, the unknown and the different.

When you have the media, a supremacist tool used for brainwashing, that preaches the innocence of images that resemble your own, you become open, lackadaisical and trusting of that image, thusly creating an illusion that is surely destined for failure. Blacks intimately know this system called “supremacist terror” because we are the beneficiaries of it. Therefore we can easily judge most situations that are potentially dangerous, learn how to avoid it and teach our children to recognize its “warning signs”. Those that belong to the system of terror, in simple terms, cannot. Supremacy teaches whites that anyone and everyone who “isn’t like them” is to be regarded with utmost suspicion. Which bring me to the crux of my supposition.

If a young black boy went to Home Depot to buy “certain ingredients”, the cashier would automatically be “suspicious” of why he wanted them. Case in point…I was sick recently and needed some Sudafed. Did you know that the popular cough syrup is used to make a homemade drug called “meth?” I didn’t. In fact, living in my little rural farming community, I’m lost when it comes to many things of this nature. I was questioned, extensively, on why I needed the syrup…”Ummmm…I’m sick?” The manager was called to confirm the purchase and I left with yet another confirmation that in AmeriKlan, something was surely amiss.

The Columbine boys in question look, well…normal. Don’t they?

In fact, they look like average boys you would see walking the streets of Central Park. But then came the diaries they kept…OUT IN THE OPEN! Diaries about anger, killing and “exacting revenge on the world.” Then came a school report…ON NAZISM, and not one teacher blinked, got that “funny feeling in the pit of her stomach” and sought immediately to meet and question the parents. Then came the court ordered anger management classes after they were caught breaking into a van in 1998. Then came the detailed explanation of how he would destroy others…with the date 4/20, (which by the way, WAS HITLER’S BIRTHDAY) written on his calendar, and his own dad claims he never knew about it! Not one person at school…no teacher, no administrator, not one person looked at these kids and went, “Hmmmm…” Ok…sooooooo, let me get this straight:

You live in the same house with a teenage boy, who has obvious anger problems, who has written a manifesto about murdering people, who has researched Hitler and has a police record and to you, the father, the boy is just experiencing normal teen angst? If that was a black boy, believe me, there’d be some ass-whooping going on. And the teacher, who would have had that “funny feeling” from the moment she laid eyes on him, would have alerted the school principal…at once!

I remember the day I watched the news and saw with horror, the videotape with those handsome boys carrying guns and wearing a backwards hat( a symbol of “thuggery” in the black community yet with whites, it’s a fashion statement ). I winced at what the parents were going through. Then my friend from the mid-west called me. She is, perhaps, one of the quickest young women I’ve ever met. I said, “Yeah, I can’t imagine what the moms and dads are feeling right now.” She said ever so quietly…

“Truthbetold, I’m not shocked. Whites are the original terrorists. We know that. Everyone around the world knows that. The only people who doesn’t seem to know that…is them.” At her sharp yet powerful statement, I inhaled. We talked for a while and when I hung up, I realized that she was right. White supremacy, doesn’t just cause terror to brown folks. We are the beneficiaries of their hatred. But the mental strain caused by their own intrinsic terror is what perpetuates these crimes. History doesn’t lie. We know it…They…do not.

The Fear: A Continuation to “The Plan”

 

 

 

 

****This post is dedicated to my African man. When God created me from your rib, you became the other half of my spiritual self. Therefore, my existence depends on your survival****

Black men in AmeriKlan, let me reveal “The Fear.”

The fear begins with the notion that you won’t succumb to “The Plan.” That you’ll defy all odds and become educated, well-spoken, dignified, confident and take AmeriKlan away from them. With proper encouragement, a good foundation of love from your friends and family and a college degree, you’ll be gaining on them. Having an education DOES NOT guarantee you success, but it will open doors for you, something white racist AmeriKlans fear the most.

Look at this guy called Barack. He’s educated, well-spoken, smart and driven. And you must agree, he’s got a nice little job, right? But let’s get back to The Fear…After going against “The Plan”, you’ll want more money with your new education. Then that corner office. After a few years, maybe your own business. Then you’ll be able to employ them to work for you. So you’ll be in charge, have the control, make the rules…See where I’m going with this? White supremacy is the antithesis of black enlightenment. If you, a black man, have a nice house, that’s one LESS nice house for them. If you, a black man, make more money, that’s one LESS dollar for them. And so it goes.

But, The Fear doesn’t stop there. There’s also the women. Since white supremacy states that white women are prized, valued and prettier than ALL other women, when you, a black man, have all the amenities only a white man should have, naturally the white woman will be yours for the taking. But what about the black woman? If you are supreme, then she becomes prized, beautiful and valued. See how it works? Ever wonder why, no matter how hard you give at your job, you just can’t get a fair shake? Ever wonder why a white man with a prison record is more likely to acquire and maintain a job than a qualified, educated black man WITH NO PRISON RECORD??? It is being done on purpose. All apart of The Fear.

On the job, you’ll be harshly criticized, swiftly punished with no means of redemption, watched like a hawk, discredited, ignored, mocked, have rumors and lies spread about you,(please, for the love of GOD, don’t be alone with a white woman for any reason unless you have a chaperone…this is especially true for doctors, construction workers, realtors/home inspectors and teachers) and made to feel dumb, slow and incompetent. This will spill over into your personal life as well. You’ll be angry, depressed, homicidal, likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, hit your woman, beat your children, overspend as a way of compensating, which I might add, leads to a lowered credit rating and has the ability to affect home and car purchases…All apart of The Fear.

And when you’ve had enough, you’ll save up money and build your own damn company in your basement or garage. You’ll struggle to eat and pay rent. You’ll fight the banks for a loan and humbly accept any amount they give you just to have a little slice of the pie. Then, somehow, someone will throw a monkey wrench in your life to try to take away everything you’ve sweated for, begged God for and had many sleepless nights wondering what will become of your life.

If you give up now, you’ll succumb to The Fear.

The Problem With No Name

****This post is dedicated to my black readers, male and female, who have written intensely personal comments and emails to me…either on this blog or other blogs. You are not alone…We are sick. I was tempted to call America an infirmary but that would suggest that we are being cared for and we all know that’s not true. For every sickness, there must be a cure…****

My white readers comment on my blog all the time. Some comments are deleted due to racial epithets, some due to excessive racial profanity and some for just being stupid and incoherent. Some write to me and ask, “Why do you keep bringing this up?Yeah…I sorta know that there may be something wrong with the world but you can’t deny that blacks commit more crimes and thusly are the problem.”

OK…fair enough. Thank you for responding. Since my people have known, from day one, that this “problem with no name” indeed has a name, just sit back and allow me to educate our paler readers.

Since I am invisible being a brown-hued female and all, many people talk right in front of me. I hear discussions on the bus, at the park, in my neighbours backyard and at work when they think I’m safely out of earshot. Whites seem to believe, almost exclusively, that blacks are the greatest problem in AmeriKlan and perhaps, in the world. But…the very essence of supremacy, the control system of said mentality, the principles and its foundation of how we are viewed, comes from the mind of whites.

Therefore, blackness isn’t the problem…whiteness is. The concept of skin colour, which is a creation of the white mind, is the pathology in which white supremacy thrives. And because of that supremacy, that control to dictate what is considered right and wrong, ugly and beautiful, sinful and holy, worthy and unworthy, dangerous and benign, whites have the means to influence not just how THEY are judged but how WE are judged.

I will give you a simple but potent example. Please prepare to be shocked. Look at this being:

What makes THE WORLD believe that this deity, this divine holy spirit, looks like this? Supremacy does. Because whiteness has the ultimate power to dictate how they are viewed. They can manipulate any imagery, any tool, change history to benefit themselves and transform a man who is middle-eastern in descent into a Germanic form with blonde hair and blue eyes to meet their needs. If Jesus were to be portrayed realistically, some say he may have looked like this:

My black scholar friends hypothesize that due to the Egyptian(which I’d like to add, is in Africa) influence during biblical times, coupled with the fact that scientists, both black and white, have proven that ALL life comes from Africa, feel that if Jesus is to be properly portrayed, he should look like this:

Not what you were expecting, is it? A far cry indeed from the Nordic God you “know so well”.

Whiteness, and its need for self-preservation, will change anything about itself that is deemed unclean, unholy, evil, wanton and unjust to point the finger at any scapegoat to distance itself from the fact that yes, there is a problem. It is because of that power to deny oneself as being flawed, that leads whiteness into a cancerous sickness of the mind and the spirit. That very sickness has spilled over to the black race in the form of depression, low self-esteem and suicide. To control a man’s mind is perhaps the most potent form of slavery. That is why today, in modern-day AmeriKlan, you see blacks still suffering from the slave mentality called unworthiness. And because slavery is still alive and well, we can choose to fight this illness, or perish.

The problem does have a name. It’s a name that is reinforced throughout history to be our greatest inventors, scientists, physicians, leaders, teachers, politicians, bankers, farmers and Gods. And that name, once and for all, is called Whiteness.
