How the Black Vote Benefits White Supremacy

Posted: April 10, 2016 in Uncategorized

 

A friend sent two links this morning on former president, Bill Clinton, addressing the “Black Lives Matter” protestors. For those who haven’t seen the eye-opening (but not surprising) videos, I suggest they take a few moments to view it.

For those who missed the video of Hillary’s “super predator” comment, here it is:

It SHOULD BE EVIDENT who the Clintons are and what they represent to black people:

A return to OLD STYLE PLANTATION POLITICS.

(minus the free hams given out around election time)

Bill Clinton is the same president whose administration created the ‘three-strikes-you’re out” policies that created the mass incarceration of black non-violent drug users.

Hillary Clinton is the same person who referred to poor and oppressed black youth as “super predators” while she and her husband committed unspeakable crimes. 

In these clips, Bill Clinton says “Black Lives Matter” protestors are defending criminals.

Translation: Any unarmed black person who is shot or murdered by the police is a natural born criminal — or in the words of Hillary Clinton:

“A super predator”

Then ole Bill delivered a DOUBLE WHAMMY by linking black people with welfare in an appeal to his WHITE AUDIENCE, many of who delight in racist stereotypes about black people despite the FACT that there are MORE whites on welfare than any other ethnic group.

And then he told the LIE of all LIES:  that black poverty is the lowest it’s been since…

(when?)

In spite of the FACT that black poverty–all poverty–is skyrocketing in America.

Bottom line:  CLINTON KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT HE’S SAYING.

And he showed his true colors.

Those of a RACIST/WHITE SUPREMACIST.

Why would he do this now? Because he has to play the racial politics game as long as he can. And because he knows we have very short memories when it comes to white people (not black people).

He knows that the same black people he offended when he insulted President Obama during Obama’s re-election campaign have forgotten all about that now that a  Clinton is showing up at black churches and running for the White House.

Two Thoughts:

Black people DO NOT ELECT presidents. Our votes do NOT swing presidential elections. They aren’t enough of them.

I’ve asked myself many times:  why is all the emphasis being placed on black voters? I don’t see the same media attention being paid to Asian voters, Jewish voters, Hispanic voters, or any other ethnic group. Why us?

Here Are My Two Reasons:

1. To keep the black masses locked into the false promise of democracy. This is CRUCIAL to keep our population asleep and believing in LIES. By doing so, few of us will EVER think outside the system or outside the box or think for ourselves, and we will NEVER develop real strategies for our self-empowerment OR self-respect. We will continue to look to whites and those blacks endorsed by white (like Obama) to solve our problems.

2.  To use black people to manipulate and sway the white voters who vote along racial/racist lines so they will vote the way the white supremacists want them to vote. By making black people the MAIN FOCUS of presidential elections, this also TRANSFERS some of the rage that the white masses feel toward their government TOWARD us.

While it is not a total transfer of rage, black people (black bodies) provide an acceptable TARGET and a BUFFER ZONE to absorb some of the growing anger of the white population. All you have to do is read the comments after the Bill Clinton videos.

In other words WE BECOME THE SCAPEGOATS for the ruling white minority that is robbing everyone of their money and financial futures.

And for those who say, “My ancestors died for our right to vote” I say this:

1.  they did NOT die for the right to vote in a FRAUDULENT ELECTION where the needs of their people would be ignored. They fought for the right to vote because they thought it MEANT SOMETHING — and in their day it probably did to a degree. They wanted to have the SAME rights whites had, and that included the right to use a public bathroom or eat in a restaurant. Had they known what the vote would have become, maybe, they would have focused on something more meaningful — like ECONOMICS.

2.  They did NOT believe going into a voting booth once every four years was an effective way to overcome their oppression. They were fighting on other fronts besides voting rights. They were ACTIVE and ENGAGED.

3.  Just as we do not dress or talk or live the way our ancestors lived 60 YEARS AGO, there is NO reason to believe we must be locked into the SAME strategies that are OVER A HALF CENTURY OLD — especially when those strategies did not work.

4.  I do NOT believe our ancestors would be “honored” by our contributions that pretty much amount to nothing more than pushing a button or marking off a square on a ballot once every four years.

IF YOU VOTE, VOTE WITH YOUR EYES WIDE OPEN BASED ON YOUR OWN LOGIC

IF YOU DON’T VOTE YOU ARE NOT DISHONORING  YOUR ANCESTORS

THINK FOR YOURSELF

BE LOGICAL

AND KEEP YOUR WAR HATS ON

because you’re going to need them.

    Everything you wrote is so on point. The other communities you mentioned-Asians, Jews and latinos, are focused on group economics–as we should be. You never hear about Asians rallying their people to vote at the polls like we do..I do see Latinos are following our lead in that respect, but they still practice group economics..it’s like we have all but abandoned that in favor of political croneyism for the favored rent-a-coon class…what I think a lot of us don’t want to admit is that this is an apartheid system. Therefore there has to be a permanent caste system and black people have become the designated ‘untouchables’. I believe that most of us suffer from Stockholm & Post Slavery Traumatic Syndrome and I just really think most know the presidential sham is simply public entertainment that will end with a plantation overseer who is going to screw us in the end–regardless of who ‘wins’–so I just think people want to get ‘screwed’ by somebody they at least ‘like’ or who is ‘likable’…it’s sad cuz there is no democracy here..only democrazy..but most black people are like those stuck in the hulls of the Titanic–hoping that if we can just keep it afloat, that gives us one more day of survival..until Jesus comes to save us..

    • Trojan Pam says:

      @ maat433

      I agree, this is just a more sophisticated form of apartheid and it is definitely a caste system where blacks are held to the bottom

      all of which makes us extremely useful to the political charade of a presidential election

      By focusing on us, a lot of white rage is focused on us.

      I believe many black people “get it” — that the system is corrupt and it really doesn’t matter who is elected but to really THINK about it, requires more work than many of us want to do.

      Let’s be real. ANYONE reading this is on-line. That means they have the means (and probably the time) to do their own research.

      How many will before they vote? Very few. I understand it. People are stressed out, they have to spend a lot of time just functioning– and so they want to relax and be entertained, not be put into a position where they have to do MORE thinking.

      And the vote becomes little more than a “popularity contest” like you said.

      (democrazy is right on point)

    • Ma'am says:

      I notice African immigrants practice group economics as well. It’s an extension of cultural views, and possibly related to immigrant status, not to mention a language barrier. But they have problems and stresses, too.

      Terms like apartheid and plantation being casually tossed off by people with internet access and electricity who can read and write and vote is really telling. Kids in Malawi are thrilled to get desks and have school uniforms. Students in Ghana study by streetlight for lack of power. Women spend their days gathering firewood. Some African girls invented a generator powered by urine. And y’all up here complaining? SMDH

  2. Timothy says:

    @Sister Trojan Pam,

    Excellent words Sister. Listening to Bill Clinton’s overtly racist statements tells us what the truth is in plain view. There is no ambiguity with Bill’s words. There is no mysticism behind his words. He told black people straight up that he hates us as a people and he is defending such a heinous law like the Crime Bill of 1994. He talks about drug dealers and murderers, but the black protesters never were defending drug dealers and murderers. That hypocritical liar Bill Clinton (who did a disgraceful response to the genocide in Rwanda and who supported NAFTA plus the Glass Steagall Act, which contributed to the economic recession of the 21st century) omits that the protesters were condemning Clinton’s extremist policing involving the criminal justice system. Bill knows full well that there are progressive alternatives to handle the issues in the black communities without establishing regressive three strikes policies. Also, many people in prison via the Crime Bill have nonviolent drug offenses (meaning that they aren’t drug dealers or murderers). People have to be told the truth. The Electoral College selects the President not the masses of the people democratically. The superdelegates have inordinate power in deciding who will be the Democratic or Republican nominees for President. Bill Clinton also made the racist statement about President Barack Obama back in 2008: “…”A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”

    History has always proven clearly that communities with strong families, strong institutions, and cultural cohesiveness prosper. Other ethnic groups in this country have utilized that formula to not only benefit themselves, but pass on that formula onto future generations. As for poverty, statistics show that mass incarceration increased during the Clinton Presidency including extreme poverty in America. The number of families with children living in extreme poverty–less than $2 a day per person–has doubled since 1996. Most people, who have poverty in America, are white people and the vast majority of black people in America don’t have welfare services. Also, certain welfare programs are gone since 1996 via the welfare reform act. The Clintons view black people in a patronizing way similar to a plantation. We are always the scapegoats of the crimes of the mostly white oligarchy. There is no liberation without social, political, economic, and spiritual power. More and more black people are realizing that we should have fought for self-determination in a higher level instead of token crumbs. We have to respect ourselves and not seek validation from those who are oppressing us. Our ancestors would definitely be ashamed of the condition of our people in the world. We are inspired by them and we will fight for black liberation.

    • Trojan Pam says:

      @ Timothy

      I would add that the twenty odd years Hillary has been in office, she can’t point to ONE thing she ever did to alleviate poverty or racism. NOT ONE THING

      She gloated at the assassination of an African leader because she took some credit for it

      what are we thinking???????

      • Timothy says:

        @Sister Trojan Pam

        Yes, Hillary was involving in the disastrous US/NATO invasion of Libya. When Gaddafi was assassinated without due process of law and he was just murdered unjustly, Libya became destabilized. Libyan rebels murdered and raped Black Libyan human beings too. Gaddafi wanted an independent African power base and the EU plus the US wanted to stop that plan. Hillary gloating over the murder of an African leaders shows her pro-imperialist agenda. Using discernment is very important and you’re right that folks shouldn’t be deceived about the agenda of the Clintons.

        • Trojan Pam says:

          @ Timothy

          Frankly, it saddens me and sickens me that Hillary Clinton can march into black churches after a FOUR YEAR ABSENCE, and have black people shower her with attention, praise and support.

          For what????

          And it’s sad that so many of us pretend to have a “connection” with our African roots yet care NOTHING about the FACT that HIllary was instrumental in the illegal, and immoral assassination of an African leader who had done nothing to merit it –other than seeking independence from the white supremacy system.

          That’s a real shame that we would flock to the polls to support her

    • Ron Gilliam says:

      Everything said is very much on point and clearly stated. However, the one point that is missing is “what are we going to do about it?” We can spend the rest of our lives “defining”, the time now however is to come up with solutions and get to work.

      • Trojan Pam says:

        @ Ron Gilliam

        There are bloggers (like Diaryofanegress and myself) who have posted many articles on things black people can do

        Authors (like Mr. Fuller, Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, and myself), have written books about the things black people can do

        Internet radio show hosts, like Gus Renegade of the COWS program and scholars like Dr. Kambon, who have advocated various strategies to deal with the system of white supremacy have talked extensively about things black people can do

        The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan has written and spoke on what black people can do

        I have included in all four of my books, “The Theory of Non-Violent Non-Participation” with over 20 suggestions of things black people can do that don’t cost a DIME.

        In all my books I make many suggestions.

        Brother, there is no shortage of “what are we going to do about it?”

        There is a shortage of interest

        FYI –I have posted many sound clips and videos of Mr. Fuller, Dr. Welsing, and Gus Renegade on my site. I always advocate that black people EDUCATE ourselves about the system BEFORE we create strategies that work.

      Head nod at Brother Timothy:

      I have never supported either of the Clintons nor did I EVER envision Bill Clinton as Amerikka’s , “first BLACK president.” The Clinton’s agenda is the same as other past WHITE Presidents: keep White Amerikka privileged. Yet, sadly, many of our people are still voting blindly…

      As for the poster that complained about “…really telling. Kids in Malawi are thrilled to get desks and have school uniforms. Students in Ghana study by streetlight for lack of power. Women spend their days gathering firewood. Some African girls invented a generator powered by urine. And y’all up here complaining? SMDH.”

      Excuse YOU? Are you so insensitive that you conveniently forget about black people in these United Snakes that are CATCHING HELL FROM SUB-HUMANS THAT WOULD LIKE NO MORE THAN TO SEE OUR DEMISE? It is not that blacks in Amerikka have no sympathy for the plight of blacks in other countries. To be sure, many blacks in Amerikka are in solidarity with blacks in other countries, but pedantic behaviors will not garner you much sympathy.

        @Phazex_Female

        Excellent Points and Thank you Sister.

        We, who are black Americans, have always care about black people in other countries. Maya Angelou and Malcolm X worked in Africa to promote the African independence movement in the Motherland. Many African Americans worked with South Africans during the 1980’s to fight the apartheid injustices going on in South Africa. The Clintons are a deception and their policies have been exposed succinctly by Sister Soujah decades ago. Bill Clinton’s recent comments about him lying that black protesters want to defend drug dealers and murderers should make people realize that just because someone is a Democrat doesn’t’ mean that this person is an ally of the black community. We have every right to speak truth to power. I appreciate your commentaries Sister.

        • Epi says:

          @ Brother Timothy:

          Say that! I think that many people, if not most, have reached the realization that the process is “FRAUDULENT,” but feel that inaction is not an option. They want to feel that they have some influence over their own lives by casting a vote, even as they lack confidence in the process. Maybe to them, not voting equates to giving up all hope for a brighter day. However, I do agree with you 100% that we need to concentrate on our own. We can begin by forming strong coalitions amongst ourselves, strengthening each other, and working to build our own economic base. It won’t happen overnight, but then, nothing worthwhile rarely does. With trust and integrity, we can maintain and make it happen. After all, we should never put our trust in “The Man,” but trust in one another, and most of all, trust in a higher power, allowing it to guide and direct us as we remain humble in the process, because after all is said and done, it’s much bigger than any one of us.

            @Sister Phazex_Female

            Great Points Sister.

            Many people do realize that the mainstream system has been co-opted by the powers that be. The Electoral College, not the people, ultimately decides who will be the next President. Also, super delegates massively influence the delegation process of the Republicans and the Democrats. The big myth is that voting alone can save us. If that was the case, we would be liberated a long time ago. Inaction is also not a solution as not doing anything is a guarantee that nothing will be done. One of the greatest points of our elders is that they believed in self-determination. We do need to use action and self-determination is part of the ways that we can get real results. Focusing on our own develops strength and you will notice that the mainstream media never criticizes Chinatown, Greektown, and other ethnic groups coming together and setting up their own institutions that they control. There are cultural groups and museum specifically geared to Chinese people, Koreans, Japanese, Hispanics, and other white ethnic groups, but Black Unity is taboo in our society. That’s a shame. Black Unity is Beautiful just like Black Love is Beautiful too. Black Love is a Revolutionary Act.

            It is when black people want to set up our own institutions that we are unfairly criticized (when the people who orchestrated genocide in the four corners of the Earth, established the Maafa, and caused anti-black racism are white supremacists). Certainly, it won’t be an easy road into the Promised Land. We have to develop trust and integrity since no one can truly respect or trust an untrustworthy person. That is why we should mentor and grow apprenticeships into the next level, so black youth can not only know about STEM fields, but enact their own economic and political power bases. Also, mental transformation is in order since a black person must always love their black identity and their own humanity in order for change to come. The Knowledge of Self is very important. We should never trust the oppressor. We trust the truth. This is bigger than us as you have mentioned. We live in a planet and in an Universe that is vastly larger than us physically. Yet, the Most High established all of us for a purpose. We are indeed miracles since we survived a lot and our ancestors suffered massive brutality and murder. We should be humble and humbleness, strength, integrity, and courage are excellent characteristics to live by.

            Thank you for your words Sister.

  3. Joe says:

    I was all in for obama, news, magazines u name it i was ur man. I wasnt expecting a miracle just someone to really stand for our needs even if it meant only serving one term. At this point in time i see no point in voting unless me and other blacks are willing to put our money were our mouth is. Prostitution at its best and if ur not willing to pay then u cant complain about how ur going to be raped. Just take it with a smile.

    • Trojan Pam says:

      @ Joe

      A lot of people believed in the “We Are Change” Obama dream. Well, it wasn’t a dream, it was a nightmare. Obama, like the last five presidents is a SPOKESPERSON and NOTARY PUBLIC for the whites behind the scenes who really call the shots

      I hope that black people SEE the folly of falling behind “black leaders” we did not pick.

      As we can see black people lost on EVERY front during the eight years of the Obama administration.

      HBCUs
      Black farmers
      black workers
      Black poverty

      I don’t hold him responsible because I knew what he was. I only hope that some of us have gained some sophistication in our thinking and are more realistic about the political systems that control this country — the corporations and the banks call the shots, not the president

      Until we educate ourselves about this system, no amount of money thrown at it will make any difference. We have been voting for the lesser of two evils and it has gotten us NOTHING.

      It is time for a new strategy, rather than relying on one OVER A HALF CENTURY OLD.

    • Ma'am says:

  4. Trojan Pam says:

    @ Timothy,

    One more thing.I’d like to add.

    The media could be lying about the volume of black support for Hillary.

    They seemed bound and determined to stereotype all of us as Hillary supporters.

    The question is why? I believe it’s all about scapegoating and manipulating white voters.

    • Timothy says:

      @Sister Trojan Pam

      The corporate media is doing its job, which is to distort, manipulate, and use deception about how the real world works. Also, I read about how NYC Mayor DeBlasio joked about being late on CPT time and Hillary Clinton was there and not condemning DeBlasio for his racial baiting comment in trying to joke about us (or black people). The media is lax in reporting on this story. DeBlasio is a person who claims to be a “liberal” but once again show his real colors with him refusing to condemn the non indictment of the cop who killed Gurley, refusing to take on the police institution for real, etc. The political establishment certainly wants to show the lie that we live in a real democracy. Trump and others certainly manipulate white voters to promote the agenda of white supremacy. Black people are the scapegoats of the actions of the one percent without question. You’re right on that point Sister. Just because we as black people are exposing the two party duopoly doesn’t mean that we want to promote no solutions. The elders have talked about solutions for generations.

      • Trojan Pam says:

        @ Timothy

        Many black people don’t want solutions that don’t include white people and the white system

        That’s why they are so locked into doing what they are told and seem unable to think outside the box.

        I have seen NO OTHER ETHNIC GROUP that is more maligned when it comes to voting than black people.

        And frankly, it’s hard to argue with that assessment that many of us are TERRIFIED to punch any other button than “Democrat” — REGARDLESS of who is running.

        It’s no wonder none of the candidates have to promise us anything

        They know it is totally unnecessary

  5. Ms. J says:

    Great article!!!
    I have zero interest in voting this year for the reasons you highlighted.
    Another thing that annoyed me was how many (white) people acted like Trump’s candidacy was a joke even though white backlash against black progress (depending on how one sees Obama) has always been a part of this culture.
    Sanders seems very refined though in contrast, but I don’t thanks he’ll win.

    • Trojan Pam says:

      @ Ms. J

      I agree, Bernie Sanders could very well be a refined racist. I see it all as a stage play where different actors play different roles BUT at the end of the day (or the election), the hidden hands have already chosen the president.

      The people in power use the two party system to divide, fool, and subsequently control the population. Check out the book, ‘Tragedy and Hope’ by Quigley who admitted that the two party system was created to maintain power at the very top.

      I don’t have a problem with voting, it’s voting in FRAUDULENT ELECTIONS where the candidates work for their benefactors behind the scenes.

      And where the president has been chosen LONG before any person casts a single ballot.

  6. Ma'am says:

    Elections happen more than every four years. That’s part of the problem: people don’t vote in municipal, state or midterm elections, then complain about the people who get elected. You need to vote for schoolboard, mayor, city council, sheriff, congress people, senators, judges, District Attorneys and Governors. Vote early and often. You can’t go the gym sporadically to keep in shape, nor can you vote sporadically and keep local, state and federal governments in shape.

    To say no media attention is given to the Latino voting bloc is patently false. That has been a huge bloc for years. Perhaps you have heard of AIPAC? Are you not aware of how every politician says he or she supports Israel? It’s essential for earning “the Jewish vote.”(BTW, voting blocs do not mean every member of that group will or must vote a particular way.)

    Sounds like you’re not even up on the basics, but you’re out there disrespecting every person who struggled for you to have a right you take for granted.

    You want to talk about corrupt? Look at Chad, where the same man has been in power for 26 years. Look at Ghana. Or Congo. Talk about a stacked deck. You don’t know the meaning of an unfair system.

    Maybe you don’t remember the crack epidemic. If one was forrunate enough not to see it first hand, The Hughes Brothers gave us “Menace 2 Society” and Spike Lee gave us Samuel L. Jackson and Halle Berry in “Do the Right Thing.” Crack babies. Crack heaux. It was a devastating drug. Clergy and community demanded action. Now if the president, any president, hadn’t done anything, people would’ve said the president doesn’t care, or that it was a vast plot to destroy black urban communities. (If the government wanted to destroy people, they could it in far more efficient ways.)

    People, I implore you to vote. “You don’t need the bullet if you ain’t got the ballot.” Forget all this rah rah. Register and vote!

    • Trojan Pam says:

      @ ma’am

      I agree with the first part of your post. That’s why I HAVE VOTED FOR MANY YEARS (with increasing reluctance) in local elections because our votes can swing an election. However, AFTER the election is over then what?

      The candidates are beholding to the same people that financed them. We saw that happen in Illinois when the black vote allegedly swung the election in Rahm Emmanuel’s and Governor Rauner’s favor.

      And soon after blacks threw their support behind these two, Mayor Emmanuel closed a large number of black schools and Governor Rauner has gutted the social net programs that thousands of poor people relied on. He is also instrumental in closing Chicago State University, one of the few black colleges in the Chicago area. Hundreds of mostly black teachers and administrators are being laid off and many students, some in their senior year will not graduate.

      I agree that there are other voting blocks but I have NOT heard them getting the amount of media attention that blacks have gotten this time around. I haven’t heard anyone attach the Hispanic bloc to any one candidate. Maybe, you have heard differently. I can only speak from what I have seen and heard. Of course, the Hispanic voting bloc is used as scapegoats to rile up the white voting bloc but there is something much more insidious when it comes to black voters.

      One other difference in the media coverage is the Hispanic bloc at least has a reason to vote. They are not portrayed as “brainless Democratic sheep” (like blacks are) but are portrayed as voting in their own self-interests.

      Even President Obama promised to ‘solve” the immigration” problem–and has delivered on his numerous attempts to legalize what is clearly illegal immigration while he promised black voters NOTHING — and has delivered NOTHING.

      What candidate has the media attached Asian voters to? What about the Jewish voters? What candidate are they falling in line behind? If you have the answers I’d appreciate you posting that info here.

      What is Hillary going to do for black people? What has Hillary done for black people? What is her track record? I would think those who advocate voting should at least have a REASONABLE expectation that this or that candidate is going to do something for them — and if that candidate has been in government office for over two decades, the person voting has no excuse not to have a concrete reason why they are or are not supporting them. When I talk to the average black voter all they tell me is the same mantra:

      “My ancestors died for my right to vote.”

      Sorry, but I got off that bus a LONG TIME AGO.

      I never once said there isn’t corruption elsewhere in the world. A lot of the conflict and corruption in African countries today originated with the colonization of Africa by Europeans who STILL control much of Africa. But that’s another topic and there is no need to defend something I never said.

      I will not address the issue of crack cocaine as that is so far off topic, I don’t understand why you referred to it.

      Bottom line, if you want to vote– vote. I have said over and over that I am not telling people to not vote. I’m telling them to be LOGICAL and use their OWN research as to whether it is beneficial or not beneficial. And to not be swayed by other people’s guilt trips or fear mongering.

      I could suggest they forget all the “rah-rah” about voting for candidates that have done NOTHING to improve the lives of black people — but that would sound too disrespectful.

      To all others: ask yourself WHO BENEFITS from black=Democrats VS white=Republicans?

      The SAME PEOPLE WHO CONTROL BOTH PARTIES.

      FOLLOW YOUR LOGIC AND RESEARCH. DO NOT FOLLOW ANYONE ELSE’S

    On the topic of futility

    Did you know President Obama refused to pardon Marcus Garvey?

    (who should have never been convicted of a crime?)

    So much for “Change you can believe in”

    • Timothy says:

      @Sister Trojan Pam

      I didn’t know of that story. He or the President has commuted the sentences of many people, but he can’t pardon Marcus Garvey. Marcus Garvey was a man who inspired many people in the conscious community. Garvey has promoted black pan-Diasporic unity and he was right to advocate the end of mental slavery among our people. This current reality is not change that we can believe in. It is the continuation of the status quo on many levels. Thank you for the information Sister.

      • Trojan Pam says:

        @ Timothy

        President Obama — in my opinion — doesn’t have the power to decide who is pardoned and who is not.

        But, I am also convinced that he is well aware of the role he was HIRED to play and for the most part doesn’t have a problem with it — except in perhaps a few instances.

        Whenever he goes “off script” he catches hell for it

        Again, I try not to hold him responsible for the horrific decisions of his administration but I don’t take that position to protect him, I do it because I believe it is accurate. Why blame a black man (or any black person) for the policies of the white supremacists?

          The President is a very intelligent man, so he knows what the deal is. He knows that the powers that be calls the shots and that the policies of white supremacists have harmed the lives of the black community in many ways. You have made interesting points. We have to look at the personages behind the scenes that call shots. I have recently studied the Persian Gulf War and I realize that the war was done to promote Western oil interests not to promote democracy in Kuwait as Kuwait was ruled by an authoritarian. You have made great points.

            Like most things in this system, the political system is a CULT. The members are lured OR born into it-and are programmed to cooperate with it and are rewarded by their cooperation

            When they go against the cult, they are dealt with in any number of ways

            dishonor/slander/destroy their reputations
            threatened or a family member is threatened
            they are disabled (killed)
            family member is killed

            No one rises to the level of Commander in Chief unless they are ENTRENCHED and proven LOYAL to the cult’s agenda. PERIOD.

            If you follow his rise, it is clear Obama was slated for this role long before any of us ever heard of him

            What is surprising–to me– is how the movies will SHOW the people how the real world works and how corrupt it is

            yet when it comes to real life, the people seem clueless.

            Maybe they think movies are just entertainment but I believe nothing is farther from the truth.

            • Timothy says:

              @Sister Trojan Pam

              Movies readily show predictive programming (or how things actually are or future plans of the elite) in plain view. One example is the movie Spectre saying a secret group exploits terrorism as a way for them to form a new world order. Also, the movie Eyes Wide Shut shows secret cultic parties which exist in real life. The political system is like a cult, especially in the highest levels. I have notices that many Presidents are not only related to each other, but related to European Royals. Even the current President is related to other Presidents and European royals too. So, many of these puppets are related to each other. Things in this level of politics never happen by happenstance. Many industry heads work with the military industrial complex in movie projects, so the Hollywood entity is allied with the military industrial complex. People who are President follow the same agenda, which is why there is a continuity in the policies of the many administrations (and those advisors to the Presidents are readily linked to the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group). The Hollywood and political cults certainly outline nefariousness, divisiveness, and evil. I certainly agree with you.

    Marcus Garvey never committed any crime as a universal man! The white man charged him because he was inspiring consciousness and advocating end to mental slavery among Black people, and this to a racist white man was a crime. We should refuse to validate RWS baseless charges, lies and injustices. The Honorable MG was our Saint, he does not need forgiveness from any man on this planet because he did nothing wrong in trying to save his people/us. This is my view Sister. I am an apologetic un compromising Black man. Black without apology, as I strive each day to replace the system of WS with a system of JUSTICE in order that there will be peace on planet earth.

    • Trojan Pam says:

      @ JW

      I completely agree. I didn’t mean to imply that he committed a crime but that he was charged and convicted of a crime. And if a modern day Marcus Garvey materialized within our midst they would probably kill him.

      based on what we know about this system, it’s unfortunate that we didn’t see through the Obama phenomenon, where our enemies actually raised, educated, vetted, financed and (s)elected a person they chose as our “black leader.”

      We should NEVER let our enemies choose our leaders. Would the white supremacists allow their victims to choose their leader? Of course not.

      But over the last 500 years, the white supremacists demoralized and terrorized our population to such an extent that we would desperately grab at any sign of progress and “black power” — ie. “change” that many intelligent people fell for the lie.

      Now, it’s time to be honest about what and who we’re dealing with.

      The TRUTH will make you stronger. A LIE makes us weak.

        This is just a portion of what black voters gained from voting for Rauner for Illinois governor

        • Timothy says:

          @Sister Trojan Pam

          That is very revealing video. Ronald Reagan was a notorious deception. One of the easiest ways to show people the viciousness of white supremacy is to outline a sketch of Ronald Reagan. Reagan was once a FDR Democrat. By the 1950’s, he was a far right Republican, which he became for the rest of his life. Dr. King called him an extremist. He opposed the actions of the Black Panthers, he supported the Vietnam War (which was an unjust war. Even historians have said that the conflict in Vietnam could have been solved back in the 1950’s, but military industrial complex supporters like McNamara, Stimson, Westmoreland, etc. supported the war along with LBJ under the guise of fighting Communism when Ho Chi Minh was heavily nationalist in his ideology. Vietnam was no direct threat to America and the conflict in essence was a civil war). Governor Rauner is an extremist who wants massive austerity measures.

          Even mainstream journalists from the Illinois area have criticized Rauner because of his policies from cutting benefits to his lax response to the epidemic of police terrorism in his state. Lax revenues, deindustralization, the War on Drugs, family issues (which are caused by economic oppression, racism, bad policies, etc.), and other complications is a recipe for disaster. Yes, Reagan fired many PATCO workers back in 1981. Reagan caused the deficit to triple during his 2 terms, and he saw the growth of homelessness in America. Reagan used policies to increase the mass incarceration state. Today, Reagan (who was a honorary 33rd Degree Freemason, a member of the Bohemian Grove, and his ally Casey was a well known Knight of Malta. I was in Kindergarten at the end of Reagan’s 2nd term. I studied Reagan’s real background many years ago) has been almost deified by many white supremacists. Rauner is a representation of the same evil tradition of austerity and the status quo that Reagan represented decades ago (black people continue to be made the scapegoats of the actions of the one percent, which is a shame). Rahm Emanuel has done a terrible job as mayor Chicago just like Rauner has done a terrible job as Governor of Illinois. Our Governor (where from I’m in Virginia) is a pro-Hillary Clinton agent, so it is what it is.

          Thank you for showing the video Sister.

            Interesting information. I did not know about a lot of this. I want to add that this isn’t about Democrat VS Republican. Rauner is a Republican, Rahm Emmanuel is a Democrat (who supported Rauner– go figure)

            They BOTH have a similar agenda. Devastate the black population and destroy unions.

            People MUST get out of the false thinking of supporting EITHER party. BOTH parties are controlled by the same people — and in the end, get the same results

            MORE POWER TO THE CORPORATIONS, THE BANKS, AND THE WHITE ELITE

            MORE POVERTY FOR EVERYONE ELSE.

            Don’t be fooled by the ‘good cop/bad cop’ scenarios between the two parties. At the end of the day they are playing for the SAME TEAM but make it look like they oppose each other

            how can this be true if they both work for the same people?

          • Epi says:

            Good Morning, Brother Timothy:

            Rahm Emanuel has NO interest in the black citizens of Chi-town (as we call it). I have read quite a bit about him and how, during his tenure, blacks have taken an economic down-ward spiral even more.

            Case in point, I have a female student, that has made some serious strides since leaving Chi-town academically speaking. She shared with me that there are “no jobs there.” Long story short, on a wing and a prayer she and her three children relocated and she enrolled in a non-traditional course of study: Automotive Technology. Since enrolling, she has made the Dean’s List TWICE and is now on the brink of graduation in May with the promise of employment upon graduation. In addition, she has already enrolled in Aeronautical Engineering at another college and her oldest child graduated from high school last year as class Valedictorian. I admit that, coming off the welfare rolls for years, I am very proud of her and what she has accomplished in a little over two years. Not to mention she also shared with me that she had little family support in Chi-town.

            Many of us are aware that we live in and exist in a crooked system and we must “navigate” through it. However, undergoing the daily modalities of living, with conscious thought and effort, it is STILL about “F1” though much focus is placed on that “almighty dollar.”

            Family first.

              @Phazex_Female

              Hello Sister Phazex_Female

              I agree with you on the Democratic mayor Rahm Emanuel. He was once a member of Bill Clinton’s team. Also, he is known to use profanity and other disrespectful language against people, so I have no respect for Rahm. His record has been terrible for black people. Black people are struggling in a lot of ways as a product of the bad policies from Rahm and others. That is why a wide spectrum of people are disgusted with the actions of the mayor. He has shown lax, disgraceful actions in addressing police brutality, poverty, and workers’ rights in Chicago. He has fired even qualified black teachers and closed numerous schools. Also, Chicago is a city with a lot of history and great people live there. So, we always have the backs of the people in Chicago who are fighting against the evil system of racism/white supremacy.

              Also, bless the female student. Her story is very inspiring and it is always a blessing for any black person to work in STEM fields. She is right that the economic situation in Chicago is difficult and precarious, especially for black people. That is why black people (with degrees and excellent qualifications) struggle to get jobs while many white people barely out of high school can have a Tech job because of family connections, various business links, or white privilege.

              Also, it is great news that the female student is on the Dean’s List twice and is about to graduate with the promise of employment. We are all proud of the Sister indeed. It is very important to develop family cohesiveness as we are all family as black people regardless. When one of us suffer, then we all suffer. So, it is very important to encourage each other, to support each other, and to fight for the necessary self-determination that our elders and our ancestors (from Harriet Tubman to Patrice Lumumba) justly believed in. We believe in black liberation. Thank you for your eloquent, thorough commentary Sister. I appreciate your words a great deal.

However, I will also state that I will be glad for the day when MORE of our people involve themselves in consciousness-raising.

                Also, I was unaware that Rahm Emmanuel was a former member of Bill Clinton’s team. The reality is that they all circle their wagons and insulate one another. Good to know.

              Conscious raising is very important. One of the ways to grow conscious is to view a black person that you encounter as you are encountering a black relative and act in a just fashion. Healthy eating also improves the immune system and the human soul too. You’re right about Amerikka too. We get the flu and we are the scapegoats. Your story is important to show since it shows us the truth that while we are alive on this Earth, we have to move to help ourselves and help others. Either we get busy living or get busy dying.

    For those who BLINDLY vote Democratic:
    ______

    On Dec. 15, President Obama signed the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014 into law, empowering any multiemployer pension fund — commonly managed by unions — to cut benefits for workers and current retirees if the plan is 20 percent or more underfunded.

      Great Information. It does seem like it will be a Trump vs. Hillary race. Also, many states have cut pensions like in Detroit too. The Multiemployer Pension Reform Act is sponsored by the establishment for the establishment. Also, before Democrats and Republicans existed, we were here. So, we should follow the interests of our people first and foremost beyond the agenda of the 2 corporate parties.

      • Trojan Pam says:

        @ Timothy,

        That’s what I’m waiting on, to see if Trump will be the nominee or if the powers that be will be bold enough to deny him. I would be surprised to see a Trump VS Hillary race. Very surprised. What I hope people is forget the Dem VS Rep nonsense. Both parties are the same.

        And pay attention to who really controls the votes and the elections. The elite, not the people. It is time to let go of fairy tales and wishful thinking and deal with reality.

        • Timothy says:

          @Sister Trojan Pam

          The GOP race will be interesting to witness. If Trump doesn’t get the delegate votes, then it will go into a new type of procedure and the convention will decide who will receive the nomination. Sanders seems to be more refined in his rhetoric in trying to stir people into the Democratic Party. Sanders says that he’s a democratic socialist, but he’s not calling for the nationalization of the banks, he supports drone attacks in foreign countries, and he voted for the Crime Bill. Also, he voted for the extradition of Sister Assata Shakur (who is an innocent black woman) to America. Assata Shakur is a heroic black woman who loves our black people so much. So, that tells me right there that Bernie Sanders is tied to the system just like Cruz, Trump, Hillary, and Kasich. Both parties are complicit in advancing the interests of the establishment.

          For some, it is very difficult for some to escape fantasy and deal with reality. Some people are mentally caught into the Matrix of deception. We have to deal with reality if we desire to witness the truth.

    What is everyone’s thoughts on Harriet Tubman being on the 20-dollar bill now?

    • Timothy says:

      @Ms. J

      First, we should take time to revere and honor the sacrifice of Harriet Tubman. She saved lives, stood up against tyranny and promoted justice for our people. America was created in the midst of hypocrisy and contradictions. Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were slave owners and racists. For a long time, many groups wanted Harriet Tubman to be on the 20 dollar bill. I read where she won’t be on the 20 dollar bill until years later. Today, some want to use this news as a means to promote the myth that we have progress. We should be focused on eliminating racism and economic oppression. Harriet Tubman being on the 20 dollar bill is better than than having Andrew Jackson on it, but we shouldn’t celebrate token gestures when we still have a corrupt system oppressing our people. This system continues to harm our black people, so we don’t have a total victory until the system of white supremacy is gone being replaced with a system of justice.

      Thank you for asking the question.

      Goodnight Sister.

    • Trojan Pam says:

      @ Ms J

      I do not want to see Harriet Tubman on any U.S. currency because it is not a sincere tribute but is simply an act of DECEPTION, to keep the “slaves” caught in the delusion of inclusion.

      I would love to see the day where black people stop craving symbolism and start demanding real progress. We are so easily pacified by meaningless gestures that we would not stop to ask:

      why would the same people keeping us trapped in modern day slavery want to honor a black woman who fought against slavery?

              I agree with your statement, ” first, we become the FOCAL POINT again for enraged whites who feel blacks are getting special treatment.”

              I glad you mention this statement. When white people feel that they are losing power they will physically & verbally attack black people. Prime example, look at what happen to Black Wall street, when white people felt that black people were becoming too independent and didn’t need their white master support so they attack innocence black people. This illusion of Harriet Tubman on a $20 bill will up lift black people self esteem to some degree but the repercussion they will face will be dangerous. Furthermore, white people are already pissed that we have a black family in the white house now a black person on a $20 bill. Also the presidential campaign is race baiting as well which is causing more tension. White supremacy is on a agenda that they must achieve to stay in power.

              • Trojan Pam says:

      @Sister Sister Sharon

      Hello Sister

      You’re Welcome. I appreciate your wisdom too. I have read the link about Ben Carson. Here are my views. Ben Carson have made it his duty to submit to the interests of the GOP (which have a long history of promoting the War on Drugs, austerity, race-baiting, etc. Both parties of the Democrats and the Republicans have done nefarious actions). For him to praise Andrew Jackson makes me very aware of why I disagree with him. Carson supports Trump, who is the same male (not man since Trump is not a real man) who disrespects him during that campaign. So, I am not surprised at his statements. Also, I find it interesting that he wants Harriet Tubman to be on a 2 dollar bill rather than a 20. Regardless if one agrees with Tubman on a bill or not, that statement shows a slick way of him in making Jackson above Tubman (in significance), which isn’t the case at all. Andrew Jackson was a white supremacist who owned slaves, oppressed Native Americans, and appointed the racist Chief Taney to the Supreme Court. Taney supported the evil Dred Scott decision. Andrew Jackson used pet banks, which contributed to the Panic of 1837 when the nation experienced a massive recession. So, our eyes are open about these issues. We always praise the hero Harriet Tubman for her strength, her sacrifice, and for her courage as a great black woman.

            Prince’s body was cremated very quickly. I do believe that an independent autopsy is needed to find the actual causing of his passing without speculative commentaries or conjecture.

            The story of Tamir Rice is very tragic. The authorities disgracefully have blamed a child for his own death. The cops of Cleveland have been cited by the DOJ for its discriminatory and racist policies against black people in the city of Cleveland. Tamir Rice was murdered by a person who was criticized by people in other cities because of his reckless behavior as an officer. It is a disgrace that to this day, racist bigots want to blame Tamir Rice for is own death when a murderer shot Tamir Rice (who was unarmed and was no direct threat to anyone) in less than 3 seconds. The cop, who murdered Tamir Rice, should be prison. We send prayers and condolences to the family of Tamir Rice.

Prince played over 20 instruments and he had incredible talent. He was an icon. There are conflicting accounts now. I recall that he had flu like symptoms just before he passed. We do know that other celebrities have passed under suspicious circumstances like Jimi Hendrix (he was illegally monitored by the FBI), etc. I feel for Prince’s family and his fans. Therefore, the truth should be known about his passing. Prince wanted artists to own their own rights to their songs. That is why he had a battle with Warner Brothers.

We are going to take the high road and disagree with them (then, keep it moving). Words are powerful and we do believe in using words in the right way to expose evil and to inspire people.

    Bless you like always.

    @Sister Courtney

    I have listened to Tariq views on Harriet Tubman being placed on the 20 dollar bill. It is important mention that he talked about many other issues too. One issue is about how the cops arrested 6 year old kids from an elementary school. That is just disgraceful. It shows that even the smallest of black kids are harassed and arrested by crooked cops. We know that black kids are suspended in harsher terms even if black kids and non black kids do the same offense. Babies being arrested and placed into juvenile locations is totally evil and unacceptable. The young kids were not fighting anyone at all. We are under attack. White supremacists are very overt in mistreating black people and ruining the lives of many of our black people.

    He’s right to expose the injustice of Akai Gurley being killed. Liang and the other cop with him in NYC never immediately called an ambulance or caused CPR. DA Thompspon is a disgrace to recommend probation and no jail time for Liang. The corporate media didn’t really cover the case at all, because Akai Gurley was so unjust and so evil that the media forces can’t sugarcoat what has happened. They or those cops stepped over a dying Akai Gurley, and walked down one more flight of stairs to speak with the neighbor (whose name is Melissa Lopez) on the phone with 911, leaving an untrained civilian to perform CPR on a bleeding victim.

    Neither Liang nor Landau ever called for an ambulance. It was Gurley’s girlfriend (whose name is Melissa Butler) who ultimately administered CPR initially not those cops. People who have done far less have received longer sentences than that cop. It is something that people should be outraged about. Judge Chun was the Manhattan Assist. DA under Rudy Giuliani and he supported the evil stop and frisk policy. We know that police misconduct is a problem found nationally and globally. I express condolences to the family of Akai Gurley. It is a disgrace that some Chinese people in NYC supported a killer like Liang. We should respond to this injustice by building our economic power in our communities.

    They (or Gurley’s family) deserve much more respect than this. I do agree with Tariq on the Harriet Tubman dollar bill situation. Like always, we honor the sacrifice and heroic courage of Harriet Tubman. She saved hundreds of lives of black people. Yet, her being placed on the dollar bill was used as a means by the powers that be to deflect their responsibility in oppressing our people. Also, other racists are still on our currency. So, we have a long way to go. Also, we should expose Andrew Jackson (who destroyed a black fort filled with black men, black women, and black children. The Battle of Negro Fort was a short military siege in 1816 in which forces of the United States assaulted and managed to blow up an African-American fortified stronghold in the frontier of northern Spanish Florida.The Seminole Wars are interesting to study) too as a white supremacist, a person who had black slaves, and he was involved in the Panic during the 19th century that harmed the economy. Having Andrew Jackson on the back of the 20 dollar bill is disgraceful. So, we have to know about the subtle tactics of white supremacy.

      Thank you for taking the time to listen to the podcast. I agree don’t always agree with Tariq (he’s a misogynist), but I agree with his comments here. And I agree with everything that you said. I didn’t know that about Chun. Thanks for the info.

    @ Everybody:

    I know that this is OT, but I thought that this video would be interesting to watch:

    • Timothy says:

      @Sister Courtney

      Good Afternoon Sister.

      This video is interesting. Many Youtube videos do outline these types of experiments (which gauge human reactions to various situations). First, I love history and I know a lot of the history of New York City from the Dutch explorers to the black Harlem Renaissance. New York City has a smorgasbord of culture and architecture. NYC is the home of a strong civil rights movement and where Afeni Shakur worked to help black people for years. RIP to Afeni Shakur. This experiment deals with inter-religious (or interfaith) relationships. These relationships were not reported as much back then in America, because relationships back then were mostly intrareligious in America. Now, interfaith couples are growing as compared to decades ago in America. The Muslim/Jewish couple should have been left alone and it is disgraceful for some people to jeer at them. They or the couple aren’t bothering anyone. They are not messing with anyone. It shows that bigotry and intolerance are found everywhere including in NYC. One coward threw a bottle near the couple too in Brooklyn. The experiment outlines a very important lesson.

      That lesson is that regardless if we believe in religion or not, we should treat people fairly and with respect. The Golden Rule is a universal principle that should be honored. Many people were shocked by the couple. That is why some folks starred at the couple with shock, disbelief, and abhorrence. Some folks used vulgar, evil epithets to describe the couple in an offensive way. I believe in black liberation. Also, I don’t believe in disrespecting people minding their own business. The experiment clearly shows that we have a long way to go in ending prejudice and nefarious intolerance. We believe in promoting peace and justice. The end of the video has people who expressed more progressive views on the couple. In the final analysis, we want the system of white supremacy to end, so justice can exist. We don’t hate any human being. We do hate evil and injustice though. Peace is a honorable principle.

      Thank you for showing the video Sister. 🙂

      I will comment on your other video (about Donald Trump) soon. God Bless You.

  20. Courtney H. says:

    Speaking of politics, here’s another video:

    • Timothy says:

      @Sister Courtney

      I have listened to this video about politics. The video has the former Grand Wizard of the Klan and another person talking about Trump. One thing must be mentioned. Both men said that they don’t know if Trump is a real racist. I do believe that Donald Trump is a racist point blank period exclamation point. Donald Trump refers to black people as “the blacks” regularly and he disrespects BLM protesters. He even condoned the beating of a Black Lives Matter protester by a white thug in November 2015 in Alabama. When Trump was serving as the president of his family’s real estate company, the Trump Management Corporation, in 1973, the Justice Department sued the company for accusations of racial discrimination against black people looking to rent apartments in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. There are rumors of Trump’s father being an ally of the Klan in Queens, NYC decades ago. Trump entertained the Birther nonsense.

      He disrespected the Central Park Five even after they were acquitted and released from prison, so Trump is a racist. Racists are hypocrites. That is why white racists have expressed hatred of black people, but many of them have raped innocent black people for years and centuries. The Klan is a terrorist organization since its inception in 1866. They have used murder, rape, assaults, harassment, and other evils against black people (and others) since their beginnings.

      The Klan is a nefarious enemy. Also, white supremacists from David Duke to American Renaissance support Donald Trump, because as the white man in the video has said, Trump gets to speak about things in public that the masses of racist white people say in private. Trump is overt in his hatred, in his anti-Muslim bigotry, in his evil misogyny, and in his deplorable narcissism. Also, Trump’s agenda of austerity, xenophobia, the near unconditional support of the police institution, hatred of women, and other authoritarian policies are part and parcel of the agenda of white supremacists. White racists say the N word, they want to falsely blame black people for all of the problems in America (when the 1 percent caused the economic recession in the first place), and they are cowardly. The video is informative to describe the psyche of white racists. Like always, we believe in black people respecting each other. We want our black institutions to grow and we should reject distractions. We oppose imperialism and injustice. That means that we don’t want the Middle East to be puppet states of the West. Also, we believe in self-determination (as advocated by Ida B. Wells, Dr. King, Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Fred Hampton, and other great Brothers plus great Sisters). In other words, we want to define our goals in our own way and we desire black liberation without compromise. I don’t support Trump. The video was eye opening.

      Thank you for showing the video Sister Courtney. 🙂

  21. Courtney H. says:

    @ Everyone: HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

    @ Brother Timothy:

    Thank you for watching the two videos. I thought that they were very interesting. The video about the Muslim/Jewish couples shows that there is still a lot of hatred out there. I think it’s weird that they worship the same God (but call Him different names — Allah/God) are still hating and killing each other. I agree with your comments about this video.

    I agree with you on the other video as well. The two men seemed to downplay Trump’s racism. We cannot afford to downplay or be dishonest about people’s hatreds, because when haters are in power, they use their hatred to oppress people. Racists of all kinds need to be called out.

    Again, thank you for watching the videos and responding. I greatly appreciate it.

    May you have a blessed weekend, Brother. 🙂

    • Timothy says:

      @Sister Courtney

      Thank you for your words Sister.

      I totally agree with your sentiments. Yes, racism in any form should be called out and opposed. There is no need for any person to be show unjustified hatred against human beings. People of various creeds ought to be able to peacefully co-exist in the world. The videos certainly make me think about subjects in a great fashion. Learning information is a life long situation that we love and enjoy.

      Trump’s racism and extremism are very transparent, it’s open, and it’s evil. He supports torture and banning any Muslim from coming into America. That is not right. Trump is exploiting the fears of people and the economic stagnation (including other economic problems in America) as a way for him to gain support. I don’t support Trump’s agenda and his regressive ideologies. Evil can only end when folks confront evil and advance the power of goodness. We have hope and we have faith. We also believe in using actions that can bless others. We also believe in God. I greatly appreciate your commentaries as well. You’re a Blessing like always Sister. 🙂

      Also, Happy Mothers Day to you and everyone else.

        Thank you for response and kind words. I greatly appreciate it. I also agree with your response about Larry Elder. Your comments about him are spot-on!

        • Timothy says:

          @Sister Courtney

          Thank you for your words Sister. Yes, many people know about Larry Elder. He’s like Ben Carson before Ben Carson back in the day. Like always, we learn from each other and we want the same goal which is the total liberation of our black people. We love life, we believe in social tranquility, and we want racism & oppression to end.

          Have a Great Day Sister. 🙂

    @Timothy and everyone

    What do you think of Larry Elder? What do you think of this?

    • Epi says:

      What do YOU think of Larry Elder?

      • Timothy says:

        @Epi

        Larry Elder is a person that I heard about since the 1990’s. At first, I thought, Larry Elder was just joking, but later I found out that he is a true believer of far right politics. Larry Elder is wrong on racial matters. First, African American is a term used by Malcolm X long before Jesse Jackson talked about it. Malcolm X said that we are African Americans back during the 1960’s.There is nothing wrong with being called an African American. Larry Elder believes in executing the destructive war on terror. He denies any connection to Africa when his ancestors came from Africa. I consider myself a black American or an African American. Elder minimizes institutionalized racism. There are studies which document how black people with African sounding names are given less economic opportunities than those with more Eurocentric names (even if black people and white people have exactly the same qualification). The murder of black people in Charleston is an example of racism. The situation of the emails from Sony that have executives slandering black people is an example of racism. The situation of black girls being kicked out of schools because of their hair is an example of racism. So, racism is real. Some people want to worship white conservative talking points instead of promoting black liberation.

        Elder needs to know that most crime are most intraracial. Many black people have condemned intraracial crime for years and decades. So, Elder uses white supremacist talking points while he ignores the reality of the system of racism/white supremacy. The truth is that overall crime rates in the black community has declined since 1980. The life expectancy of black people in America has increased since 2000. The black teen pregnancy rate has declined since 1992. The cancer rates in many cases in the black community has declined. Black male suicide rates have declined since 2005. Black women graduation rates have increased and black women now own record businesses in America. Racism, sexism, and xenophobia are serious problems in America. So, Elder is a conservative/libertarian extremist who wants to minimize black pain. Also, he was one person who supported the Iraq War, which has been a disaster for America. Progressive policies of investment, a social safety net, and expansion of human rights legislation from 1945 to 1975 declined the poverty rate by 50% and caused the greatest amount of reduction of income inequality in American history (possibly in human history). One canard that people like Elder use is about welfare.

        Modern welfare is mostly eliminated by Bill Clinton’s 1996 repeal of the ADFC. I don’t agree with forcing fathers out of the home in order for welfare to exist, but that doesn’t negate the need to help the poor. That means that the anti-family provision was wrong not that all social safety net programs are evil. Most black people don’t have welfare and welfare has declined since the 1990’s. We see many problems now as a product of Reaganonomics, bad trade deals , deindustralization, discrimination, economic problems, and unjust wars (these problems didn’t originate by black people or single mothers). MIcroaggressions are real. Families should develop not by shaming every single mother. Black people have the right to fight for justice.

        God Bless You Sister.

        • Epi says:

          Brother Timothy:

          All that you have stated I am well aware of and I DO agree. How well I re-call Clinton’s ’96 repeal of AFDC as well with record numbers of individuals that had never exercised their voting rights becoming active in the political process.

          Good commentary you shared. Thank you.

          • Timothy says:

            @Sister Epi

            You’re Welcome Sister

            1996 was a year of many developments. I was 13 back then. I remember it just like it was yesterday. There was coverage about Clinton, the election, and the Olympics going on in Atlanta.

  23. purushakti says:

    @Timothy

    Thank you. I certainly appreciate your comments.

    @Epi

    I think that he’s not afraid to speak and expose himself publicly. I don’t agree with all of his ideas but some of his arguments are worth hearing.

    • Epi says:

      I agree with you in that Larry Elder is NOT monolithic, however I am of the opinion that Larry Elder IS out of touch regarding black culture just as for example, Clarence Thomas is. Rather than provide pro-action solutions Larry Elder, on the whole, disparages black people.

    • Timothy says:

      @Sister Courtney

      I have read the link. Once again, Brother Kushite Prince have outlined great information. Dogs are domesticated wolves and they once lived in close proximity with ancient white people (whose ancestors came from Europe and Central Asia). Hollywood loves to show films that outline animals acting in the most murderous or perverse ways. There is that undercurrent of the promotion of bestiality (which is an abomination and a crime against nature) in that Hollywood crowd and among other perverted people. It certainly is a fact that the one percent controls the industry and white folks are not the original humans. They are related to Neanderthals and black people are the original human beings. Some folks have a sick perspective of showing more empathy and compassion for a dog than a human being who is black. That is one major point that the link is desiring to convey. The vicious, carnivorous actions of many wolves are personified by the cruel actions of white racists (who have done record amounts of war crimes, genocides, sexual abuse, rape, economic exploitation, etc. spanning centuries). That is why there is a fixation of some to show white people as wolves or transforming into wolves. All of this information coming out in our generation is a sign from God that time is continuing and more folks have to wake up. Perversion of goodness is always part of that industry.

      Once again, our eyes are on the prize and the beauty of Blackness is eternal.

      Thank you for showing that informative link Sister. Bless You. 🙂

    Great post but our people are going to see some real devastation once the new president is elected. We’re already catching hell now, even though we have a biracial president. Our people have this illusion that we have made it to the promise land since we have a black (biracial) president who invites & hangout with other black celebs. Whites are already pissed that they feel like they losing power since a black president is in office but when we get back another white president black people will catch serious hell.

  25. I do agree with you, as we also know the civil war was nothing about slavery.keep in mind and carefully select the path, the one less taken to vote, or the highways, no vote. I preferred weather I counted or not to be present here today .

    Our vote , we had none we were strategically called 3.5 human. We did not vote, but we were counted.

    Very good article thank #Saymyname

      Voting is an obsolete strategy when there is no real difference between the two parties AND when neither party is serving our needs.

      It’s time for a new strategy.

          • I have posted and clearly watched. As I do not like this whole Clinton Foundation issue with Haiti and looked up numbers. Not very generous.

            They Claim she may have Parkinson’s . Let’s pause and remember the psyops of journalism and social media. They tend to use a different lens.

            Thank you

      • Haaaa we know this, but Ime only- believe. That once in a few severe venues in this Country their is a must give it to the people. Very few but a small rabbit hole.

        Womans right to vote, desegration, Black vote. I know it’s only a few, but think back they had to unite and be loud…very loud.

    Thank you for taking the time to watch the video; I know that it was almost an hour long, so I really appreciate it. 🙂

    I agree with your conclusions about the video; these four brothers covered a lot of issues during this video. Despite all the cussing, I agree with you that these are four intelligent Black men with varying perspectives on these issues. I liked the fact also that even when they disagreed with one another, they were respectful. Respect is greatly missing in political discourse nowadays.

      I agree with your sentiments. Respect is important in our black community. We can have diverse views on issues and be honorable with each other at the same time. We are inspired by the past, we live in the present, and we fight to have a better future for black people.

      Have a Great Monday Sister. 🙂
