Peep the ‘Showcasing Blacks’ Game

Cornel-West-Tavis-Smiley-Obama-Al-Sharpton

(from left to right: Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, President Obama, and Al Sharpton)

A friend called me today and told me that Tavis Smiley criticized President Obama’s remarks on Trayvon Martin’s death and the outcome of the George Zimmerman trial.

During a discussion on Sunday’s “Meet The Press,” Tavis Smiley criticized President Obama’s remarks on Trayvon Martin’s death and the outcome of the George Zimmerman trial.

Obama surprised everyone, including the White House press corps, when he walked into the briefing room unannounced on Friday. The president candidly commented on Travyon Martin’s death, saying that the teen “could have been [him] 35 years ago.” Smiley took to Twitter following the president’s unexpected comments, calling the remarks “weak as pre-sweetened Kool-Aid.”

President Obama’s personal remarks Friday on his reaction to the George Zimmerman verdict have been praised by many, including the parents of Trayon Martin, but black talk-show host Tavis Smiley says it’s too little too late. The PBS commentator, Smiley, appearing Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” was sharply critical of the president’s “weak as pre-sweetened Kool-Aid” response to a Florida jury’s decision clearing Mr. Zimmerman in the 2012 shooting death of the 17-year-old Trayvon.

“I appreciate and applaud the fact that the president did finally show up,” Mr. Smiley said. “But … he did not walk to the podium for an impromptu address to the nation. He was pushed to that podium. A week of protests outside the White House, pressure building on him inside the White House, pushed him to that podium.”

Before Friday’s remarks, in which the nation’s first black president noted that he himself had been subject to racial profiling, Mr. Obama had largely sidestepped the verdict — frustrating some civil rights leaders who want to see the administration take a more aggressive stand in the case, including the possibility of civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman.

Trayvon’s parents, who helped lead protest marches across the country on Saturday, said they were “deeply touched” by the president’s comments, but Mr. Smiley said Mr. Obama needs to do more.

“The bottom line is, this is not Libya. This is America. On this issue, you cannot lead from behind. What’s lacking in this moment is moral leadership. The country is begging for it. They’re craving it,” he said.

Black showcasing benefits white supremacy. There are no exceptions.

My knee jerk reaction (without thinking about it) was, “yeah, Tavis Smiley is right, it’s too little too late” — then I thought, wait a minute.  President Obama is NO MORE IN CHARGE OF ANYTHING than Tavis Smiley is.

And didn’t Tavis Smiley just host a “Latino Nation” symposium a few months ago, in spite of the devastating effects that legal AND illegal immigration has had on the astronomical black unemployment rate?

It was hard to believe hosting this symposium was Smiley’s idea, so who sent HIM to the podium to promote “Latino” interests? (Perhaps, it was the same people who allegedly sent Obama to the podium).

Smiley plans “Latino Nation” symposium, to “re-examine assumptions”

Public broadcaster Tavis Smiley is co-sponsoring a daylong symposium for discussion of issues of importance to the Latino community, modeled on his State of the Black Union gatherings.

The April 6 event at Chicago State University, “Latino Nation: Beyond the Numbers,” is the first time that “such a diverse and representative group of Latinos discusses its broad agenda on a national stage,” said Antonio Gonzalez, president of the co-sponsoring William C. Velásquez Institute, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas.

Smiley said that the “exponential growth” of the Latino community “demands that we re-examine the assumptions we hold to create new ideas and possibilities for a better, more united tomorrow.”

Agenda topics include health care, climate change, education, jobs and immigration. The participants, still being finalized, feature Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; Margaret Moran, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens, and actress Eva Longoria.

Smiley had sponsored State of the Black Union gatherings nationwide for 10 years, calling them “a pulse check on how African Americans were fairing economically, politically and socially.” He ended the events in 2010, saying that communication and activism on the Internet reduced the need for an annual in-person meeting.

From what I have observed the white supremacy system “showcases” prominent blacks in the political arena for five reasons: 

  1. They are used as the “SPOKESPERSON” for the black masses to make it appear that “someone” has our best interests at heart AND is speaking on our behalf.
  2. They are used to CONFUSE, DISTRACT, AND PERSUADE the black masses to WASTE VALUABLE TIME marching and protesting. (If marching worked, why are we still “marching” to solve the SAME problems 50 years later?)
  3. They are used to DEMONIZE other black people — which increases overall anti-blackness — and takes the FOCUS off the WHITE PEOPLE IN CHARGE who are to blame for whatever issue these powerless black people are arguing about.
  4. They SHIFT the focus away from RACISM/WHITE SUPREMACY (which is SELDOM IF EVER MENTIONED) to that black person OR the black people they are condemning or arguing with.
  5. They SERVE AS A LIGHTNING ROD to attract white rage over controversial issues to make it appear that blacks have REAL POWER, and are getting more attention, more opportunities, more money, and more help for our problems than whites are receiving.

SHOWCASING ‘PROMINENT  BLACKS’ ALWAYS SUPPORTS THE SYSTEM OF WHITE SUPREMACY

The END RESULT of all this black-on-black-bashing and bickering is MORE CONFUSION AND MORE ANTI-BLACKNESS AMONG BLACK PEOPLE, EFFECTIVELY LETTING THE WHITE PEOPLE IN CHARGE — WHO ARE REALLY RESPONSIBLE — OFF THE HOOK.

A Reality Check:  Who Pays The Paychecks of These ‘Prominent Blacks?’

220px-Cornel_West_2008

Cornel Ronald West

currently Professor of African American Studies at Princeton, and Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice at the Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He previously taught at Harvard before leaving the school after a highly-publicized dispute with then-president Lawrence Summers, as well as the University of Paris. West is a frequent media commentator on political and social issues. He often appears on networks such as CNN, CSPAN, MSNBC, and PBS and programs such as Real Time With Bill Maher, The Colbert Report, and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson. Since 2010 he has also co-hosted a radio program with Tavis Smiley, called Smiley and West. He has also made appearances in Hollywood blockbuster films the Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions, also providing commentary for the films.

tsmiley_s160x240Tavis Smiley

American talk show host, author, liberal political commentator, entrepreneur, advocate and philanthropist. Starting in 1996, he hosted the talk show BET Talk (later renamed BET Tonight) on BET. Controversially, after Smiley sold an exclusive interview of Sara Jane Olson to ABC News in 2001, BET declined to renew Smiley’s contract that year. Smiley then began hosting The Tavis Smiley Show on NPR from 2002 to 2004 and currently hosts Tavis Smiley on PBS on the weekdays and “The Tavis Smiley Show” from PRI.

Al_Sharpton

Alfred CharlesAlSharpton, Jr.

 He hosts his own radio talk show, Keepin’ It Real, and he makes regular guest appearances on Fox News (such as on The O’Reilly Factor), CNN, and MSNBC.

In 2011, he was named the host of MSNBC’s PoliticsNation, a nightly talk show. His “Action Network” is funded by CORPORATE AMERICA, among them (according to the New York Post), Anheuser-Busch and Colgate-Palmolive–and New York Mayor Bloomberg, the same Bloomberg who has vigorously defended the use of “stop  and frisk laws” — primarily aimed at demonizing and harassing black and brown males in New York City.

This post was NOT written to defend OR demonize the black people mentioned here. I have nothing against black people being successful OR making a living — even a very good living. My MAIN concern is:

Why would the white supremacy system reward the same black people  with book deals, TV shows, and high political offices who allegedly oppose it?

Because they are PRACTICING DECEPTION.

My OWN personal axiom regarding “prominent blacks:” 

If they are so successful they have become a household name–meaning the WHITE MEDIA has given them a high-profile political office, a MIKE (microphone) to speak to a national audience–or their “civil rights” organizations are funded by Corporate America then it should be obvious that they are working FOR the same (white) people who put them in that position. 

Which is why Mr. Neely Fuller, Jr., Dr. Kambon, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, and Dr. Johnson will NEVER be invited to appear on networks such as CNN, CSPAN, MSNBC, and PBS OR programs such as Real Time With Bill Maher, The Colbert Report, and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson…

BECAUSE THEY HAVE DEDICATED THEIR LIVES TO SINCERELY OPPOSING AND EXPOSING THE SYSTEM OF WHITE SUPREMACY


Some Final Words

SHOWCASE BLACKS

“After all, if Americans vote for a black man to lead the nation, it will be hard to continue labeling the country as prone to racism.” – Bill O’Reilly, conservative host of the “O’Reilly Factor”. (2008)

The term “Showcase Blacks” refers to the high-profile blacks that are used for racial showcasing by the whites in power. They may be political dignitaries, pro athletes, entertainers, educators, business people, Supreme Court justices,  US Secretary of States, and even the President of the United States.

However, their real purpose is to mask the REALITY of being black in America. These anointed black leaders and role models give license to the voices of exaggeration and deception via the media, and all the conservative right-wing talk show hosts, agitators, columnists, and pundits who cry:

“Look at all these successful blacks on C-Span, NBC, ABC, CNN, and ESPN! Blacks are sitting at the table in executive boardrooms and city halls all across the nation! They’re in the NBA, MLB, and NFL! Two blacks even won an Academy Award the same year! If America was as racist as these (ungrateful) blacks say it is, would a black woman be the queen of the talk shows? Would a black man and a black woman have been the Secretary of State, or a  black man have won the 2008 Democratic Presidential Iowa Caucus?”

Absolutely – If The Goal Was To Fool The Population

Showcasing Prominent Blacks Accomplishes Several Things:

  1. It deceives the black collective about the realities of racism.
  2. It neutralizes the legitimate claims of racism by blacks.
  3. It offers a pressure relief valve for the explosive build-up of frustration and rage within the black collective. If blacks believed they had nothing to gain, the nation would be at risk from millions of blacks who had nothing to lose.

In reality, the high visibility of Showcase Blacks actually confirms just the opposite.  The more prominent the Showcase Blacks — who are just a tiny percentage of the black population — the worse things are getting for the black masses.  In other words, the need to increase deception should serve as a warning to the black collective.

  1. I swear Beyoncè and her husband get weirder and weirder by the days…

    also you forgot to mention that West and Smiley have a thing for the white ladies.

    • Mariama says:

      @phoebeprunelle

      LOL!! It is crazy isn’t it? As if they don’t have enough fame, money and attention!! I call them illusionary activists. As far as West and Smiley, yeah I figured that one out. West never really sat well with me. He seems to be “trying to hard” to appear revolutionary. I read one of his books years ago and I just could not grasp what he was trying to say. Mos Def is one of the few entertainers that has been a social activist consistently. Not for show.

      • Yeah he tries way too hard to convince everyone. He’s not a real revolutionary. He did a debate years ago with John Henrik Clarke and failed miserably in my opinion. West is just a pretender.

        • Mariama says:

          @Kushite Prince

          John Henrick Clarke was a real revolutionary….along with many others such as Dr. Amos Wilson, Steve Coakley, Dr Francess Cress Welsing, Dr. Fuller and the list goes on. It would be nice to see the ones who are alive get some tv time lol.

          • All those names are okay. But I don’t think any of them are the real deal. Tim Wise has the most knowledge about racism. I mean after all,he’s the one on television all the time,right? *sarcasm*

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ phoebeprunelle

      I knew Cornel West was (or still is?) married to a white female.

      I think Tavis is (or was) married to a black woman. I hope he still is

  2. it was also highly inappropriate for them (Bey and Jay) to inject themselves in the Martin family’s going-ons.

  3. What can you even say about the showcasing of Black people that hasn’t been already said? I find it a waste of time for Black people to be on camera or any media for that matter. It serve only one purpose and that is to promote white supremacy. I watch Black people completely change the way they act, talk, and behave when in the company of white people. It sickens me, but I know why they do it. We all want to be that good nigger.

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ hunglikejesus

      I have noticed that myself, how our behavior IMMEDIATELY changes whenever a white person enters the room. I’ve done it myself (and sometimes the reason I do it makes me want to kick myself in my own butt!)

      but that is the programming we received from cradle to grave, and I think that as much as black people SEEM confused about how dangerous white people are, I think a lot of that is DENIAL

      because if we really didn’t know anything about how racist man and racist woman OPERATED, why would our behavior change? See, that doesn’t add up and PROVES that black people understand a lot more than we pretend to NOT understand.

      Like this lady said once, “It is hard to wake someone up who is pretending to be asleep.”

  4. @TrojanPam
    Another great post Pam! All this showcasing is really getting on my dam nerves. All these clowns fighting for screen time to prove who cares about black folks the most. When we know none of them do. Most of them belong to this society anyway.

    http://kushiteprince.wordpress.com/2012/09/12/the-boule-skull-and-bones-societypart-2/

    Smiley,Sharpton,Jackson,West and Cosby are all in on the deception. What have they done to move us forward as a people? Where is our own educational system? Where is our economic growth? Where are our medical research centers? ZERO!!! They fight on these cable shows about whether Obama is doing enough–which is pointless since Obama has as much power as a manager at a Wal Mart. Black people need to research groups like The Boule and all these societies that mislead the black masses. I can’t take any of these so called leaders seriously. Although Tavis Smiley and Cornel West do speak the truth at times about Obama. They NEVER speak on the white/Jewish leaders behind the scenes that really pull the strings. These pundits are a complete joke!

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ Kushite Prince

      They know white people will put a hurting on them. In their place, I probably wouldn’t either.

      Just like Harvard Professor Henry Gates, after being arrested in his home, said it was an act of racism, AND then had to backtrack off that statement and was coerced into “having a beer” at a photo-op with the SAME white (racist) cop who arrested him.

      • Exactly! Gates was doing the moonwalk after that beer they all shared. I also remember that cop never apologized for that incident if I’m not mistaken. gates has NO backbone at all!

      • Mariama says:

        @Trojan Pam

        You know I really like Prof Henry Gates. Then I began to notice that he seemed to acquiesce himself to whites. I remember a comment he made regarding his racial makeup. He mentioned being something like 53% white, and all I could think to myself was ##@@@@what?? Is he serious? I really enjoyed his documentaries and was surprised when I realized that they were funded by the you know whos. The more that I know, the more so-called black entertainers and yes even educators that I am crossing off of my list. Like you said, we will never hear about the “real” ones.

        • TrojanPam says:

          @ Mariama

          It is common among black people with a white parent to be GREATLY CONFLICTED, especially if they were raised around a lot of white people.

          The white supremacists often take away our best and brightest students and turn them into the vehicles that the white supremacy system uses to run over black people.

          Regardless of how UN-codified this might sound, if a black person has a “household name” I assume they are being used by the white supremacy system against black people, even if that black person does not understand how they are being used.

          That is my PERSONAL litmus test: All “Household names” test NEGATIVE.

          • Mariama says:

            @Pam

            His father is extremely light-skinned with white lineage and his mother is black. So, where is the confusion? His father would be technically considered black. I would never ever want to bring children into this world knowing that they would be conflicted in terms of being half black/half white. That is too much considering our 500 year history. Too much pain and everything else that goes with that. What do you all think of blacks who have multiple baby fathers/mothers and they are all white? That is no coincidence. I wonder if they ever feel self-conscious about those decisions and wish that they could turn back the clock.

            • TrojanPam says:

              @ Mariama

              Thanks for the correction about Gates. I think his racial self-ID is evidence of his confusion and white validation seeking. Tragic.

              I agree, even as a little girl, I swore I would never have children with a white man. After i saw the way black adults made a big fuss over children like that, I knew I wanted NO PART of it.

              I suspect more black people secretly regret those choices (to have children with a white person) than those who are happy about them. I have witnessed this, especially among black males, who have told me that the white female turned their children against them. (Not saying this doesn’t happen with black females but that is another topic.)

              I know of black males who had trouble bonding with a son who looked more white than black, or who did not look anything like them. What man doesn’t want his son to resemble him or the black side of his family? What kind of LEGACY are we building when we have children who will more than likely be absorbed into the white community?

              I think a lot of black females have similar regrets, especially if their children do not identify as black and want to be white. What does that REALLY SAY about that child’s love and respect for that black parent?

              I have a female relative who married a white male and her oldest daughter told me that she hated her mother, and she told others that she hated her skin color (she was light-skinned but NOT WHITE), and as an adult is totally estranged from her mother and her black side and has gone over totally to the white side romantically.

              I know we should love all our children, regardless of where they came from, BUT in the real world, it makes absolutely NO SENSE to raise your own ENEMIES, children who will default to the “white side” and who in some instances will be used against their own “black side” and who ultimately when they have children, those children will be absorbed INTO the white community to one day OPPRESS AND MISTREAT THE SAME BLACK PEOPLE THEY CAME FROM (!)

              The black people in Haiti had to kill whites and “mixed race” people to win their freedom because those non-white people with white parents had sided with the whites in keeping their BLACK FAMILY MEMBERS oppressed (!)

              You can see that mentality here in the U.S. Rae Dawn Chong is a perfect example of a non-white female with a white parent who (I suspect) has a ton of issues with other black people and a ton of anti-blackness.

              It just makes no sense to breed your own enemies

              • Mariama says:

                @Pam

                With that said, and from the bottom of my heart, I would prefer childlessness than to be in your female relative’s shoes. It is a disgrace and a tragedy to bear children and for them to turn against you for being the very thing that you were meant to be: Black. I am sorry. I think that some black parents see these “mixies” as a pet, something to flaunt. And I have met some mixed raced folks who have a real air of superiority. I would die before I bear that kind of fruit. This is extremely tragic.

                And I love the Haitians for being revolutionary and fighting back. They knew the deal. That is why they are in such hell today. America has never forgived them for having the audacity to fight white supremacy. Rae Dawn Chong, well, that is another story.

              • TrojanPam says:

                @ Mariama

                I feel the same way, and like I said, even as a child, I saw the negative side of it, and how brown and dark children were made to feel inferior in the presence of those black children with a white parent.

                When you unknowingly treat a child with a white parent better than you treat darker children, you are ALSO teaching that child that he or she is better than other black people — including that black parent and their black family members (!)

                Right, the Haitians have been punished for opposing white rule and deliberately kept in an impoverished state. Right now, the white supremacy system is waging WAR on all non-white nations that dare resist their RE-COLONIZATION. That’s why it’s important that ALL black and non-white people educate ourselves about the system of white supremacy because EVERYTHING we are seeing right now is a by-product of it.

    That is crazy that these so called leaders are fighting over dumb things like is it Obama’s fault, no dummies its white supremacy fault and the elite.smh, fighting over dumb things that are not in our control. They will not promote real game changers like umar Johnson because how can u be against something and accept a paycheck and pat on the back from it?

    The real black ppl that have tried to do things to create change are dead or are not well known. These black leaders are just to pacify us and are like the slaves who’d keep watch over the other slaves for massa and tell on them if anybody got out of line. I bet if there is a black person that does start creating progress they would sit there and criticize them and throw them under the bus, because that is their job.

    If they wanted to help they’d create an organization for black youth and stop all this marching, all they doing is wearing out shoes. wouldn’t be surprised if they start being more for undocumented immigrants and trying to get us to march for them, all the while ignoring our issues. For them its a numbers game, lets face it latinos out number us.

      @ mstoogood4yall

      No one, especially the white supremacists, are going to REWARD someone who is trying to upset their “thing,” any more than Tony Soprano would pay an FBI informant to break up the Mob.

      I think black people are so starved for “symbols” of progress that we got sidetracked, dropped our books, and forget the lessons of the past.

      Everyone who is a household name in the entertainment, politics, religion, and educational field is knowing or unknowingly being used to maintain the system of white supremacy.

  6. decodeSOR says:

    If you’d take the wisdom that has been expressed by the likes of Dr. Welsing, Mr. Fuller, Dr. Kambon and Dr. Johnson, and fully comprehend the instructions they’re trying to get across to us, there would be no need to react to this type of media phenomena. In stepping up our game, one of the best things we can do is detach our mental tether from this type of destructive media. We are on our own, and arguments and superficial coalitions do not create opportunities nor solve the kind of serious problems that exist among us.

    In 2013, with all of the acquired knowledge and information we have about the practices, techniques and protocols of the SOR (mistreatment), why are we not smart enough to stop falling for the bait that keeps us in a state of confusion? Divide-and-conquer, ethnic & racial antagonisms and political differences have all been used before and very effectively. What are we learning from out past experiences?

    The best alternative any of us have is simply not viewing the very same media that repeatedly discredits us in every given instance of people activity, and have nothing to offer but more confusion. While it is wise to keep ourselves informed of what’s going on in the world, we still do ourselves a great disservice and increase our own dishonesty by falling for the bait offered by people within a system that we know for a fact does not have our best interests at heart, no matter how intelligent or rich or earnest we are.

    Let’s remind ourselves that the very same people criticized for not saying or doing the things we what really have no actual “power” to effectively and dynamically influence the type of change we’re seeking, primarily justice. Once we realize this, we will begin to agree that it would be more beneficial, as well as constructive, to seek alternative ways of rendering better results. The “media” only has as much power in influencing “our” thoughts and opinions as we allow them.

    Let’s remember that we are all victims of racism and should be mindful of how less critical we should be of others who really have no power within the “system”.

    “It is an act of Black mental health to refrain from criticizing and name-calling other Black people.” – Dr. Welsing.

    @ decodeSOR

    I knew when I wrote this post that it would appear that I was “name-calling” and that was not my intention.

    At the risk of breaking ranks, I do NOT feel ANYONE — including the victims — should be immune to constructive criticism or critical examination–including myself (since I’m a victim, too).

    Despite me being a victim, if I was misleading or harming other black people for PROFIT, I hope someone would expose me and call me out asap.

    This post was an attempt to IDENTIFY the (black) VEHICLES that are being used by the white supremacists DRIVERS to run down black people.

    Of course, the DRIVERS are the problem BUT if we learn to RECOGNIZE THE (black) VEHICLES THEY DRIVE, that is potentially LIFE-SAVING and BLACK-NATION-SAVING information.

    For example, there is a certain “civil rights” activist that is coming to my town and who I strongly suspect was sent here (by the Feds) to report (spy) on the black activists who are becoming more active due to certain events that are taking place against black people. I believe this “activist” was sent to either derail the local activists OR to help entrap them.

    If I had that critical info, I would NOT HESITATE to share this information with his potential victims EVEN if he is a victim, too. That’s MY position.

    Does that automatically mean I would be name-calling or blaming the victims? I don’t believe it is. Of course, I could be incorrect.

    My dilemma is:

    how do we maintain an honest dialogue about black showcasing that is still constructive?

    I’m greatly conflicted about this. I won’t deny it, I have a lot of negative feelings on this issue even though I realize that the real problem is the white supremacists and the system of white supremacy.

    That being said, I appreciate your response

  8. Ms. J says:

    Well, I have to say that I appreciate the work of you and the entire Umoja group, Pam. You all are trying fighting against racism and don’t seek any large-scale public attention to yourselves.

    Part of me wonders if some black people often do “anti-racism” work to get more attention, but I think the RWS know very well that it’s the unsung heroes who often do more for Black people than the Black people shown all over the media. After all, the message is much more important than the messenger.

    Other Black people tell me that they think I’m going to be a big leader someday, but I just want to help others who need it without any large-scale recognition. We ALL can be leaders if we just look around us and get constructive things done. I find it interesting that Black people are supposed to have some “Leader” tell them what to do, but many White people talk or act that way.

    But I have a question for all of you: Do you think Black people would be in a much better position if Mr. Fuller’s Code was much more popular with Black people during the Civil Rights era? I often wonder where we’d be as a people if we were all individually codified but united.

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ Ms J

      I agree that the message is more important than the messenger. That’s why we published under a pen name to keep the focus OFF of us. We are the least important part of our message.

      Becoming a “Leader of One” teaches us to think for ourselves BUT UNITED with other like-minded individuals to achieve a common goal using a common strategy.

      We have seen what happens when black people follow a ‘leader’ and that leader is jailed or killed. The followers become demoralized, discouraged and derailed.

      If Mr. Fuller had his code back in the early 60s (I don’t think he did) and we had chosen that road instead of “integration” we would have been an entirely different, more sane, and more self-respecting people, but I also think the white supremacy system’s reaction to us would have been entirely different.

      Hard to say how that would have turned out but it is an interesting question.

      Here’s the link to some Neely Fuller Sound clips on “codification”

        I love your “Leader Of One” comment. I think that if more of our people used this one, they would be so much better off. We should not care about integration, we should just want equality!

          @ Mariama

          I think being a “Leader of One’ is the most practical solution for the Victims of White Supremacy.

          Unfortunately, the system has refined their method of NEUTRALIZING any potential black “leader” that they cannot control. They learned their lesson during the 1960s during the “negro uprising” and unlike their Victims, they LEARN FROM THEIR MISTAKES, go back to the drawing board and come up with a NEW PLAN.

          the NEW PLAN is to CREATE “BLACK LEADERS” and finance them and control them so black people will be led astray and never be able to overcome our oppression.

          Actually, I don’t seek “equality” because that is impossible within a white supremacy system. What I seek is “JUSTICE” and unfortunately, I have concluded that the only POSSIBLE way to overcome our oppression is to SEPARATE FROM WHITE PEOPLE. At this time, it’s not practical, but I see no other recourse.

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ Ms J

      I appreciate your support for our efforts!

      I think more whites use “anti-racism” to make money than black people. Working in so-called “civil rights” is different from anti-racism work, in my opinion, because most civil rights prominent people don’t talk about “white supremacy” (in my limited experience) and are always seeking more integration than separation.

      I don’t think Mr. Fuller had a “code” in the 1960s, he was still developing it, I suspect, but, yes, black people would be MUCH BETTER OFF, had we had Mr. Fuller’s code and information.

      Of course, the white supremacy wasn’t going to sit idle and lose money, and that’s where the CODIFICATION + A LEADER OF ONE would come in

      for example, instead of MARCHING, black people would just stay HOME instead of financially supporting degrading films

      Instead of calling another black person a foul name, we would refrain from name calling each other

      Instead of sharing our precious black bodies with racist man and racist woman, we would spend our intimate time and energy VALIDATING AND LOVING EACH OTHER

      all those things are LEGAL, UNQUESTIONABLY A CHOICE, and something that would have HUGE RAMIFICATIONS if millions of black people became a LEADER of ONE and started LEADING OURSELVES toward more self-respecting behavior.

    Cornel West has been on a rampage lately! In this article he calls Al Sharpton and other prominent blacks nothing but rent-a-negroes! Very strong words!

    http://www.eurweb.com/2013/07/west-msnbc-is-rent-a-negro-net-and-sharpton-is-on-obama-plantation/

    I can’t deny that what he says has a lot of truth to it. But those that are NOT codified will not realize that West is one also!lol Deception is the name of the game. And that is a game that racist man/woman know how to play very well.

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ Kushite Prince

      I don’t know what the deal is with Cornel West, but if his “tirades” didn’t benefit the system of white supremacy, he wouldn’t get a SECOND of on-air time.

      I strongly suspect that he is being used to promote more anti-blackness not just among black people, but also non-black people, who are watching black people literally PULVERIZE other black people on air. Not too long ago Rae Dawn Chong was blasting Oprah (have no idea why), saying the most awful things.

      I would warn ANY AND ALL PARENTS of black children to STEER THEM AWAY from the entertainment field (which includes newscasters and pundits), it is one of the most TOXIC DUMPS on the planet for black people

    Speaking of Racial Showcasing, the Hispanic juror from the George Zimmerman trial did an interview on Good Morning America. She said that she wanted Zimmerman to be charged as guilty, but she faced much pressure from the five White females to not push for a hung jury.

    This woman looks like she could have some Black ancestry, and she’s the only one who has publicly shown her face. This is so telling. Thanks for the post, Pam!

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ Ms J

      I heard about that Juror, too. As soon as the verdict was announced, the news media in my town were already giving specific details about the Hispanic juror but NONE about the white female jurors, and when I heard that, I thought, uh-oh, here we go, throwing the non-white person under the bus.

      Now, she’s getting all this attention and surely, some black people will be angry at this non-white person and will have forgotten that the MAJORITY OF JURORS WERE WHITE FEMALES.

      I told a black male friend of mine before the verdict was announced that afterwards, NOBODY BLACK would be talking bad about those WHITE FEMALE JURORS or white females in general, but would still be talking BAD about that 19-year-old black female witness, Rachel Jantel.

      So far, I haven’t heard a peep of a comment about white females.

  11. LBM says:

    Posted on CREE :

    One of the things we can start to do is stop maintaining white folks lies. Anyone watching the ESPY Awards can see clearly that WHITE FEMALES ARE NOT AFRAID OF BLACK MALES. Can we stop THAT lie?? I live in NYC and I see white females with the nattiest, blackest, etc etc dudes. So please. More than one of those jurors probably “rented a dread” at some point. My last trip to Senegal/Gambia was filled with images of white female predators paying for Black “escorts”. Where’s the fear? Stop the nonsense.

    Another ache in my tooth : stop mimicking “black on black crime” unless we’re going to start saying “white on white crime.” No matter how many white males kill their wives and feed them to the neighbors, or white females kill their children – no one is saying it’s okay for any random Black person to walk up to a white creature and murder them.

    These may seem minor but they things we can do (or not do) immediately.

    P.S. Some of those flappin’ jaw “showcasers” on CNN and the like, sex with white females so why aren’t they questioning this supposed “fear factor?”

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ LBM

      Excellent points, just like Zimmerman wasn’t afraid of a 17-year-old UNARMED black male, OTHERWISE he wouldn’t have stalked him or gotten close enough to provoke a confrontation.

      You’re absolutely right. White females are NOT the least bit fearful of black males OR black people. The only exceptions might be some circumstances where any woman would be afraid but otherwise, I have seen no evidence of that “fear.”

      I have watched white females get aggressive with black males with the expectation that he will back down (and they are seldom disappointed). I have seen a white female deliberately step on a black male’s shoe and laugh it off like a joke (no, he didn’t know her AND no, he didn’t think it was funny).

      I have seen random white females wandering around poor black neighborhoods (hunting for a ‘good time’), coming into black bars and nightclubs, and associating with (sexing) random black males like they didn’t have a fear in the world. Years ago, I was friendly with some young black males (in their 20s) who used to talk about the white females who would come to where they were hanging out and offer to have sex with them in the bushes, and this was so COMMON that these males didn’t think it was a big deal.

      And like you mentioned, thousands of white females of all ages travel a thousand MILES or more just to have random sexual encounters with strange black males in Senegal and who knows where else in the world they travel just to have sex with the big, black boogey-men of their twisted and racist imaginations.

      http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/senegal/100428/senegal-news-sex-tourism

      That’s not fear, that’s WHITE ENTITLEMENT. And as far as that old white-damsel-in-distress routine of grabbing their purses when a black male in a business suit gets on an elevator is all part of MAINTAINING THE WHITE SUPREMACY SYSTEM by demonizing their Victims.

      I’ll also add (and this might offend some) but the DOMINANT POSITION of the white female in a white supremacy system ALSO MEANS she is the DOMINANT ONE in a sexual relationship with a black male. Without realizing it, the black male is SUBMITTING to the white female– it is NEVER the other way around, regardless of what lies she tells him OR what he believes.

      That ACT OF SUBMISSION on the part of the black male actually FEMINIZES HIM, not in the physical sense, but in a PSYCHOLOGICAL SENSE, which might explain the tendencies of black males (who exclusively sex white females) to be very aggressive, even hostile toward black females.

      I have experienced this behavior personally many times, and now I believe that this aggression is DISPLACED ANGER that he cannot express toward that DOMINANT white female population that has demeaned and humiliated him publicly and privately — even while in the same bedroom — because it is unsafe for the black male to take it out on the white female population unless he’s willing to risk jail or death.

      SEX with white people MANDATES that the black person (male and female) is always the SUBMISSIVE ONE, even when it appears to be the opposite, because that white person is calling the shots and is the one who more than likely initiated the sexual encounter.

      White people always do the choosing, NOT the other way around. I talk about this behavior in the book, “The Interracial Con Game.”

      Once black people understand the (con) game called “interracial sex,” they will never again believe that it is a liberating or humanizing experience, but is one of UNEQUALS where the white person is engaging in an act of EXPLOITATION.

      Your second point (excellent also) about the media never calling white people killing other white people as “white-on-white crime.” Or that whites killing whites means black people oughta be able to do it, too.

      Never thought about that! In that light, I agree that we should cease and desist calling it “black-on-black” as though killing is the domain of black people, something that has roots in our defective character and genetics.

      Both your points are worthy of a blog all by themselves, and if I get time, I might write them

      • No there is no “real” fear from white females about dealing with Black men…

        they want to replace Black women…

        • TrojanPam says:

          @ phoebeprunelle

          Dr. Welsing talks about their desire to “produce color”

          There is some kind of pathologically twisted thinking on the part of white females who desire sex with the same black males they are practicing racism against.

          When you look at the deliberate omission of black females from black male images on TV and in movies, and you look at the white females who hold decision making positions in that industry, it sure looks like they want to us to disappear.

          of course, if every black male had children with white females, and had no children with black females, after a while there would BE NO MORE BLACK PEOPLE.

          I suspect that is another motive although I don’t believe the Creator will let that happen. Black people will be here after white people are gone, I suspect.

          • Mariama says:

            @Pam

            I hope so! I have ALWAYS been extremely cautious around white women who have no black female friends and who actively seek black men. That says too much to me. I also never trusted white men who have no black male friends and seek out black women only. The psychology of this is extremely diabolical.

            • TrojanPam says:

              @ Mariama

              I am cautious of ANY white males and females in general (I do not socialize with them) but especially those who seek sexual intercourse with blacks. I don’t see any constructive purpose in accomodating them or their behavior, but that’s me.

              • Mariama says:

                @Pam

                I agree with you 100%. I just get extremely uncomfortable, so I know how you feel. There are so many unspoken racial dynanics that people are in denial about.

        • Mariama says:

          @Phoebeprunelle:

          That is such a “dead-on” comment!! The fact that they are trying to replace us means that they fear us. Any person trying to “replace” another deliberately must be deeply insecure. They know that they can never replace the “real thing.” That says alot. And, you also made a comment about so-called mixed women being the loose cannons. What do you mean? In terms of what? Are you talking mentally, spiritually, culturally? To me, they have been the ones to greatly greatly benefit from white supremacy. I would love to hear your thoughts.

          • @Mariama,

            What i meant by mixed Black women (particularly those with at least one white parent) are more likely to reject Blackness–not in all cases of course–but i have seen it play out time again.

            I suspect it has a LOT to do with the ideals of “race” and beauty for those mixed Sisters who have certain markers that set them apart from Black women with a Black mother and Black father…

            For instance, most of the mixed Black women i know have only dated and wound up marrying white males. It’s funny to me when Sisters complain that mixed “light” skinned Sisters get first dibbs on “good” Brothers when the reality is that lots of mixed Sisters typically aren’t checking for the Brothers in the first place, lol! Especially if she grew up middle class and attended schools where the majority of guys were white.

            The ironic thing in all of this is that the ideal of “race” and good looks affects mixed Brothers differently. Those that i know personally have Black wives! I think it has a lot to do with how the Black community has treated mixed Black boys (sure, we raise them)–there is no “premium” on them though–in fact, i would say that many end up having to prove their Black manhood to others in the community thus he sub-consciously seeks out a Black women (usually a darker complexioned one at that).

            @All–i am not saying i have done any research, this is just based off my personal experiences.

            Phoebe

            • Mariama says:

              @Phoebe:

              Your assessment seems really on point. I think that mixed women are just valued for looking less black and mixed men are challenged for looking less black.

  13. LBM says:

    And too Pam, a lot of the so-called “black-on-black” crime in Chicago is likely due to some of the same reason here in NYC : it’s a part of gentrification. There was an area here in Brooklyn called Fort Greene that was so demonized back in the day – reports of people sleeping in their bathtubs, bullets coming through windows, the next thing we knew you couldn’t rent a room in Fort Greene let alone rent an apartment or buy a brownstone. We see the same thing happening in “do or die Bed-Stuy” where the drug dealers work for the cops. Older Black brownstone owners sold and moved – whites suddenly “discovered” the great homes and proximity to the city. Now there’s a freakin’ invasion. We purposely moved into our home on a brownstone block with all other Black homeowners (?) “up in” Bedstuy figuring we wouldn’t be around the creatures who had started to invade other areas. Well…the subhumans have arrived. Some brought by colored folk. I’m bracing myself now because the house next door may very well be occupied by them in the near future. You know I’m vexed….So all that to say that oftentimes the violence in Black “communities” is very well orchestrated to the point of Black folk moving, calling for draconian arrests, and otherwise aiding in our own housing demise….And again, when whites move onto a block of predominantly Black folks – in the ‘hood- where’s this “fear” they feign? Those females jog right through the joint in their skimpy drawers not only unafraid but hoping Mandingo will approach them.

    Note: I too have witnessed several cases of white females “insisting” on Black male attention. Black males who deal with white females ought to really be calling them out on this “fear” nonsense. Like you said, even in those relationships THEY (the black males) are the ones who are reduced.

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ LBM

      the deceptive behavior of white females around black people, especially black males, is so obvious even Stevie Wonder could peep it (no disrespect)

      That’s why we wrote an entire book on interracial con games. Those who don’t believe, might be surprised by what they read

  14. Hey Pam and Mariama,

    I hear what you are saying about Black folks with one white parent…

    but here has been my experience,

    No matter WHAT they SAY or DO they desperately want to be a part of Blackness…

    I grew up with plenty mixed-raced Black guys with blue eyes (although not necessarily a white trait) that preferred Black women (the dark chocolate at that lol)

    Yet if there are loose canons–it tends to be the mixed raced Black female.

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ phoebeprunelle

      my experience has been that it all depends on who raised them. If the male OR female were raised around or with the white parent or white people, they have a tendency to default to the white side but if they have been raised around black people and that white parent is NOT in their life, they tend to be more black-identified — in my experience.

  15. @Pam,

    I take your word for it :-)

    However, i do think there is an observable (not scientific) difference between mixed raced Black women and men…

    The mixed Black men tend to be more comfortable with identifying as Black, but i have seen time and time again, mixed Black women (especially those who may have lighter skin and straighter hair) be on the fence. In fact, ALL of the mixed raced Black women i know personally married white dudes…

    • TrojanPam says:

      @ phoebeprunelle

      whether it be male or female, that’s something all black people need to think about before having a child with a white person.

      there is nothing “cute” about it. It does NOT advance “race relations.” It is nothing new, just look at all the different colors the descendants of slavery come in.

      What “side” will that child identify with even while white people classify them as non-white?

      Will that child embrace their “black side” or reject it? And if they reject their black side, what does that say about their (genuine) love or respect for their black parent?

      all these are questions that need to be thought about and from what I have seen and experienced — even within my own family — having children with white people creates more confusion, more division, more denial, more anti-blackness, more need for white validation, and destroys the possibility of black unity.

      You can’t even have an HONEST conversation about racism when you bring that mix into a black family circle.

    • Mariama says:

      @phoebeprunelle:

      What I find really interesting in the case that you explained is mixed-race women marrying white men. Look at Halle Berry for example. Black men used to loooooooove her until her movie “Monsters Ball.” After that, she was no longer their trophy mixed black woman. When she started openly dating white men on and off camera, even bearing children for them, well you know how the rest of the story goes. I find it intersting that color-struck black men expect mixed race black women to be loyal to them only!! That is quite ironic considering that these women are of two or more races.

      • @Mariama,

        That goes back to the “premium” that many Black people place on mixed Black women (unfairly so), yet MANY of us would like to stick our heads in the sand and ignore this…

        The case of Halle–well…you know the deal. Berry’s parent who is white is her mother and she was solely raised by her because her Black father left. Berry’s life values are that of a white woman’s because IT was a white woman that RAISED her…

        It shouldn’t have surprised anyone when she decided to have children with white men…

        But Thandie Newton, Marsha Thomas, Corinne Bailey Rae, Zadie Smith, Karen Parsons, Paula Patton, Tamara Mowry, Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Maya Rudolph and others, all Black women with one white parent have all married white males…and countless of other non celebrity Sisters in academia, politics and the European aristocracy…

        The only mixed Black man i know of that openly dates white women is Terrance Howard. You’d expect a Brother like Shemar Moore with a white mom to just date white women, but thus far he has only been linked to Sisters…Barack Obama admitted to dating a few white girls, but one of his past lovers admitted that “i knew i would eventually have to let him go because i knew he preferred Black women”–her words, no one else’s.

        Let’s be real; mixed Black dudes are not valued half as much by Black folks as mixed Black chicks are–that’s the Pink Elephant in the room when Black folks discuss “interracial”–if we choose to discuss it honestly at all!!!

        • Mariama says:

          @phoebeprunelle:

          OMG!! You hit the hammer on the nail perfectly!! It is funny how the same black men who value so-called mixed women, have a resentment towards mixed/light men. I could never figure that one out. This of course, is a result of white supremacy, which has caused so much confusion around the world and the African/black community. I really resent that.

        • TrojanPam says:

          @ phoebeprunelle

          the irony is these black females with a white parent often place a premium on white males — and sometimes, white females.

          I have a younger female relative who has a white parent, and she once told me, while she was in college, that black males often tell her they prefer “bi-racial” girls but didn’t know that she didn’t date black males.

          She is now living with a white female lover

          sad, indeed, all the way around

  16. Even with this verdict–there will still be some Black men who insist that white women are “nicer” to them compared to Black women.

  17. […] Peep the ‘Showcasing Blacks’ Game 0 […]
