Today I was finishing up some computer work I had to do for the job. Since I had about three hours of work to do, I decided to go to the local mall here, grab some lunch, and finish my work. The city and mall where I ended up is ill-relevant because I believe the scene I experienced would occur anywhere in the world today. What happened is I was sitting there working for about an hour until five young high school age African (Black) males came and sat at the table behind me. They had a plethora of dance moves they started practicing and the moves they exhibited were outstanding in my opinion. The young guys were about 15 or 16 and so as you can imagine, their interaction was peppered with a healthy dose of profanity, including the n word every two seconds. If you understand anything about social relations and history in this society, and African history in this society, nothing there should shock or surprise you. What I did find amusing is the reactions of White adults, and many so-called African Black people, who passed these young men. What I saw on pretty much all the faces of these people was fear to even pass these young men. Some tried to hide it with plastered on smiles, but after 49 years in this country, I know when folks are uncomfortable, especially when the reason is us. What does that say? It says a lot, but most of that isn't the reason I'm writing this. And for you that would dwell on how "intimidating" the young men must have been, my response to you is I started a conversation with them and found them quite engaging, excited I took time to express interest in them, and very interesting (of course), and wanting further interaction with me, but this is what I do. So what's the problem? It's that young men like this generate a response of apprehension because they are criminalized in this racist society. I know this because I was a 16 year old African male here myself and since I take great care of myself, I'm tall, muscular, and "intimidating" still, although I'm much older now. I don't make any excuses for the language these youth used, and certainly not for them using the n word, but I know after almost 30 years of organizing African people that the way to address that is to do exactly what I did, initiate a converation with them and build a relationship with them so I can help them see a different way of seeing themselves......The answer isn't to criminalize them and act as if they pose some sort of threat to you.....They couldn't care less about you because you can't even come close to competing with the elaborate dance steps they were demonstrating......Besides......Who the hell is anyone here to judge them? For anyone who would be offended by their language and aggressiveness, I'm three times as offended by the language, aggressiveness, ignorance, and arrogance of the idiots running for the republican presidential nomination.....The corporate CEOS and spokespeople who justify greed and destroying the planet, and all of you for allowing all of htat to happen and doing absolutely nothing to stop it. ....And you wonder why your own children work so hard to imitate those very same boys I saw today......Maybe you need to take some time to sit down and try and figure that one out.....Let me know when you get here with that one.
I'm sick of people telling me if I don't vote I'm a part of the problem. I've been a very involved political activist since I was 17 years old. Who the hell do you think you are telling me my contributions don't matter just because I'm not participating in the capitialist validation process known as the electoral process. Maybe the soft reforms you get from the democratic party are enough for you....Some healthcare reforms with no real teeth. What I can't understand is why you are so willing to sell out for that when the real solution is universal free health care. The absolute best health care I've received was the root canal I got in Havana, Cuba, in 1994. It's still strong today and every dentist who sees it praises the quality of the work until I tell them where I got it. That root canal was free of charge. No waiting.....No red tape. A 15 minute wait and I'm in the dentist chair. Then after the procedure was completed, they talked to me for 45 minutes about preventive care. Since their socialist system is based on keeping you from coming back, not wanting you back to make more money from you, that's the reason they take that diagnostic approach. I realize there are some of you who won't understand that or believe it's not possible, but you need to realize that if you feel that way it's because capitalism has you fooled. No.....We want guaranteed employment, living expenses being no more than 10% of your income, free education, free healthcare....These are things that characterize socialism.....Not any type of dictatorship as you are told. You live under a dictatorship of capital and the democratic/republican parties are the tools of those moneyed interest. The republicans dessiminate from the unilateral thought and the dems from the trilateral thought which means the viewpoint of the U.S. preminent first (unilateral) as opposed to the U.S, Western Europe, and Japan (trilateral) controlling the world together. This is a fundamental disagreement between the ruling classes which accounts for the two parties. Neither is designed to meet your interests. This is why you are consistently frustrated when you place your hopes on either. Well, I place my hopes on you the people. I place my hopes on the masses of African people and the construction of mass political party action. The creation of an All African Committee for Political Coordination, the vehicle Nkrumah called for that many, including Gaddafi, have contributed towards making come into existence. Also an All African People's Revolutionary Army under the guidance of the All African People's Revolutionary Party as called for by Kwame Nkrumah. At the same time, we support all people organizing into revolutionary parties and movements whether it be in Europe, the U.S., Asia, and the Americas. This is the true solution. We intend to work as hard as we can to stymie the demopublicans impact on the African communities and we encourage you to do the same in your communities. So stop insulting us true socialists by calling Obama one......If you are doing that its because you don't know what you're talking about. Talk to us and we will be happy to help you with your confusion. P.S....Be sure to check on the ignorant comments that will come with this post from the paid whores from the rightwing sewers. They will attack me, Fidel Castro, Jesus, and any other socialist they can think of, but they won't say anything to refute the truths that we promote because they are incapable of doing so (they probably don't get paid enough to do any research, but once they do engage in some scholastic research, they won't want to say the stupid things that they say
The above is a title to a utube video that has been posted for only a couple of months, but already has well over a quarter of a million views. This is a must view for anyone who claims to conduct serious research about world events to develop an informed opinion. This video very professionally and intellectually addresses and discredits the tired old "dictator" and "popular uprising" rhetoric that dominates capitalist airwaves. I should add that I have to admit that I so much look forward to reading the typical stupid comments I get from all the underdeveloped cave dwelling rightwing idiots who follow my blog. PLEASE keep responding. I know you get paid to respond to progressive and revolutionary blogs, but you don't distract me one bit. Your attacks are so simple minded I can respond to them in my sleep! Your idiotic and uninformed references to liberation theology (which I'm not a proponent although they keep foolishly trying to define me by it) provide outstanding humor to me and the people who read your comments. I think what you simple minded folks really want to do is study the ideas of Kwame Nkrumah, Sekou Ture, Amilcar Cabral, along with the "Final Speeches of Malcolm X," etc., to properly understand where I'm coming from. I don't believe in monotheism so it's absolutely moronic to keep trying to label me as a liberation theologist or a liberal....Liberals want to reform society. That's not my objective friends.......And show some intellectual fortitude and respond to this with more than just personal attacks against Malcolm and Nkrumah, or me, etc., because you are too intellectually lazy and/or stupid to study our ideas and actions.........Anyway, keep us laughing..........I get a lot of hits on this site and you do more with your anti-intellectual responses to expose the opportunism of your rightwing dumb down movement than we could do in 10 years. More importantly, I'm sure people who are genuinely interested in getting fresh and well researched perspectives will view this video. Gaddafi was no dictator. What he did was seriously push forward the idea of creating one African currency that was to be backed by Libyan gold. The capitalist ruling classes can never permit that to happen. This is why he's gone now. There are plenty of utube videos and even other more mainstream research you can do to illustrate the millions of Libyans that supported the LIbyan Jamihiriya. The only hope left for the defenders of capitalism is to try and discredit revolutionary ideas and actions. That's why they are so afraid of this occupy movement. It's also why the fools who attack me here do so. They know you are reading this and they don't want you to read stuff like this. Plain and simple. We don't spend time arguing with their rightwing sites because what they write is so stupid. We know all we have to do is counter their foolishness with real information. Notice how in their attacks they never address the data because they can't. They can't argue about how imperialism is against one African currency. They can't argue about how Malcolm put his finger on the pulse by saying capitalism is a blood sucking system so they attack his personal faults and the things he said when he was less politically developed. They do that because their paymasters know they have to stop you from reading what he said once he developed much stronger analysis and focus....The things that got him killed....They want you to be ignorant about those things just like they want you to be ignorant about what Dr. King was talking about when he was killed. They never talk about his "Why I Oppose the War in Vietnam" speech. Always just a watered down version of "I Have A Dream." It's ok though. They can't stop us (unless we keep laughing so hard we burst a gut). My dear late mother always told me "if evil people ain't talking about you....Then you ain't doin nothing!"
The late Kwame Ture said the Democratic Party is a political party where homeless people can belong with millionaires and believe their interests are the same as the millionaires. So, please don't be confused and think I am in any way committed to the Democratic Party. I am a believer in Malcolm X's famous statement: "I'm not a politician...I'm not a student of politics....I'm neither a Republican, nor a Democrat, nor an American, and got sense enough to know it!" I'm a member of the All African People's Revolutionary Party. An independent, Pan-African political party that's based in Africa. So please understand this isn't just some liberal attack against the Republican party since we are opposed completely to the Demopublican capitialist political machine. That being said, what the hell right does Representative Alan West have the other night to declare that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be opposed to the Occupy America movement? Who the hell does West think he is to speak for Dr. King? Obviously he hasn't studied Dr. King's legacy very well. If he had, he would know that Dr. King was 100% committed to civil disobedience as a methodology to invoke social change. There are examples too numerous to list here e.g. the Montgomery Bus Boycott, the Birmingham Boycott, the poor people's march, and the Memphis Garbage Workers strike where Dr. King was killed in 1968. What are Alan West's credentials on civil disobedience? Could it be that his primary motivation for making a stupid statement like that is because there is a growing occupy movement in his hometown district in Palm Beach, Florida and those protestors were reported to have been chanting "Alan West got to go!!" That's the only explanation that makes sense. Understand that we don't care much what Alan West has to say about anything, but we do take issue with him invoking Dr. King's name in a dishonest and distorted way to try and bring credibility to his sellout political agenda. We're tired of these newjack 20th century sellout uncle tom politicians, whether they be republican or democrat, who try and claim our genuine leaders for justice and liberation. There isn't a single policy that this West is promoting that Dr. King would have supported and that fool knows that. Many of these newage sellout negro politicians have realized there is a lot of money in saying exactly what the White power structure wants you to say. There has always been a market for sellouts like West. This goes back to the 50s when the power structure used people like Jackie Robinson, the first Black baseball player, to speak out against the civil rights movement. So there has been a market there for any colored person who wanted to make some money to take on the political characteristics of those who have absolutely no interest in the African community and to articulate a long discredited anti-people analysis as to why African and other poor people suffer the way they do. They are able to do that because the audience they speak to isn't interested in historical accuracy. Just validation for their sick and immoral political agenda. That's why people like West and George W. Bush can incredibly connect themselves to people like Dr. King when these are the same scum would stood in Dr. King's way when he was alive. Don't be fooled by this nonsense. All of Dr. King's colleagues in the movement, including his children, have spoken out in support of the occupy movement. You can't find anyone who played a legitimate role in the civil rights movement who agrees with Alan West. He isn't with Dr. King's ideas and he isn't with you. His primary financial backers are the super political action committee group "Citizen's United" which backs rightwing candidates primarily from the backing it receives from insurance and energy corporations. Big surprise there. Also a big surprise that this minion West would oppose occupy America since the movement is expressing opposition against the capitalist system which butters his bread. In the final analysis, he has the right to oppose whomever and whatever he wants. He doesn't have the right to distort the message of Dr. King and those who would vomit at the thought of being associated with opportunists like him.
We all know that none of us are perfect. We all have aspects of our history that we prefer no one know anything about. This is of course more of an issue if you are a public figure, especially in this 24/7 media world we live in today because nothing you do is going to escape documentation and the subsequent scrutiny. That being said, I want to talk about the dishonest and cowardly approach being taken by the enemies of African liberation (who can be any nationality/race) to try and defame our heroes and heroines by attempting to constantly bring up issues in their lives that may be deemed controversial or inappropriate by some people today. An example is the effort some of these scrum are making to depit Malcolm X as gay because of his admitted (in his autobiography) association with an older White gentleman during his pre-awakening as the powerful revolutionary African nationalist that we identify him as today. Another example is the attempt to portray Huey P. Newton as a drug addict because of his struggle with crack cocaine during the latter years of his life and his apparent murder at the hands of a drug dealer some claim he was attempting to rob. This portrayal of brother Huey is an attempt to discredit his founding of the Black Panther Party in Oakland. Finally, the effort to create this narrative about Ernesto "Che" Guevara that suggests that he begged for his life at the time he was captured and murdered in Bolivia and that he was captured in the first place due to his being betrayed by Fidel Castro and the leaders of the Cuban Revolution where Che started his political life. It's not my attempt to explain or discuss any homosexual activity by Malcolm or any drug activity by Huey. It's also not my intention to even validate the accusations against Che. Starting with Che, his courage is unquestionable and anyone who suggests Castro betrayed him is just parroting the imperialist line because they have no real information about the history of Che's struggle in Bolivia. With Macolm and Huey, their personal actions occurred before and after their rise to political leadership and participation so it makes no sense to suggest in any way that those activities would even be relevant to their political lives. I understand the focus of our enemies is to suggest that these actions serve as proof of some sort of lack of integrity by these great brothers, but all one has to do is just examine the courage displayed by both brother Malcolm and Huey, the commitment required, and the sacrifice endured by each and any suggestion questioning their credibility during their political lives is absurd. Especially since the scum who level those accusations can't provide you one minute of activity on their part that reflects even a toenail's worth of courage as it relates to achieving African forward progress that those two displayed on a regular basis. Finally......Isn't it funny that these same vemon who level those baseless charges are never just as apt to point out the contradictions of the so-called "founding fathers" whose transgressions, unlike those of Malcolm, Huey, and Che, are personal and questionably even moral issues. I'm talking about George scurvy carrying, Washington....George S.T.D. Washington. The first president who owned at least 65 Africans as personal property. How the hell can he be any founding father when he practiced genocide against Africans? The same with Thomas Jefferson who fathered African children from an African slave woman. He is revered as some sort of statesman when he denied fatherhood of his African child and refused to initially provide any support for the upbringing of the child. This is the resume of a lowlife scumball....Not someone who deserves respect and the reverence reserved for those thugs some of you call leaders. Still, we never hear you explain or even acknowledge and address these issues? We never hear you talk about George W. Bush who was by his own admission a heavily drinking, lazy, manipulative man who's climb to the top of the capitialist world is linked only to his family ties and not any hard work on his part. What a low life bum! Yet he's held up as some sort of respectful version of a family man when he couldn't stand up to Malcolm's spit when it comes to looking at the characteristics of trustworthiness, integrity, honesty, and sincerity. Malcolm didn't even sign his house into his name because he was committed to the movement to a fault. This type of selfless feature would never be something that could ever be confused with self serving and dishonest weakneed people like Bush senior, junior, Bill Clinton, or even Obama. Some of you may be surprised by the inclusion of Obama with the other creepy individuals, but he belongs there. He's a much nicer and smoother version, but the end result remains the same. Now let's address that contradiction why don't we....And the comment section is turned on here so anyone can click on where it indicates there is a comment and you can read what is being written. Let those who want to share honest input proceed and please....Let the idiots expose themselves for all to see!!!
I've read scores of reports of Muammar Qaddafi's capture and murder today, but you can make note that this will be one of those posts that declares loud and clear that Qaddafi's death is a significant blow to Africa's future development. To those rightwing hacks, fools, idiots, and buffoons who will have a lot a words, but nothing to say about Qaddafi and Africa (at least not anything tangibly credible), this statement of support for Qaddafi is unforgiveable, but you should know by now we don't write for those simple minded people. For anyone who wants to know why anyone would say Qaddafi's death is tragic, here are the concrete reasons (and for the idiots reading, if you have an opinion, deconstruct these ill-refutable facts, don't just disagree with your usual baseless rhetoric): Under the Libyan Jamihiriya, it's ill-refutable that Libya's standard of living was the highest in all of Africa as it relates to health care, education, and overall quality of life. It's a fact that the people of Libya enjoyed the highest level of development in Africa as it relates to technological infrastructure e.g. the construction of the Wasra dam project which supplied sustainable drinking water to all citizens in Libya and the surrounding drought stricken countries like Chad (it's also an unfortunate fact that the NATO e.g. U.S. bomb strikes against Libya have intentionally destroyed the Wasra dams). It's also a fact that Libyan families enjoyed the highest income and standard of living of any country in Africa. How was all of this possible? Because the Libyan Jamihiriya utilized the massive oil wealth of the country to distribute that wealth to create opportunities for education, free education, and we all know an educated people is a self determinative people. It's unquestionable that Libya had been the only African country to avoid falling into the International Monetary Fund's financial extortation trap and consequently, it's not a surprise that Qaddafi was a major supporter and provided a major push for the creation of a true African Union with teeth, not the present model which is simply a mouthpiece for African heads of state who have to bow down to Western capitalist interests. Qaddafi used the A.U. to push for a united states of Africa as called for by Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana, and founder of the All African People's Revolutionary Party, whose government was overthrown by the CIA in February, 1966. If you understand how neo-colonialist institutions like the I.M.F. work to maintain control of African resources, then it also shouldn't come as a surprise to you that South African President Zuma could be so confused as to state that Qaddafi was so militant about creating a united states of Africa that he "intimidated" other African head's of state. Let's think this through. We're talking about governments that all have relatively similar population sizes, militaries, etc. We aren't talking about neighborhood gangs. We're talking about diplomats who created a setting, the Organization of African Unity (by Nkrumah) and later the A.U., to facilitate the discussion of ideas, proposals, structures, and programs to benefit the African continent. If this is the case, how could one president intimidate anyone else in such a setting? There is really only one way. If you have one entity whose arguments, positions, and abilities to function are based solely on the direction and interests of another party, and that entity is forced to deal with an entity that is not beholden to any other interests, then obviously, the entity that can think and act independently is always going to intimidate the other entity that can't spit without getting permission from someone else. This is the reason Qaddafi was so important for Africa and the A.U. and this is why his absence will push back the progressive movement for justice and forward progress in Africa. Still, whether he is truly dead or not, and no matter how much the capitalist propaganda machine continues to try and build animosity towards the Jamihiriya, there are a couple of things you need to pay attention to. First, watch how the standard of living for Libyans will drop. Don't just listen to the sound bite comments of handpicked individuals, study the issue. You will see that the standard will drop. We are sure of that because it's obvious that once these whore mongering people who claim to be "rebels" from the so-called Transitional Government take power, they will establish the same exploitative "pay me and take what you want" corruption that has come to define post-independence politics in Africa. Second, study as much as you can about the political and economic reasons supporting a united states of Africa and try to understand why Qaddafi would support such an entity and why we support it. Analyze the ill-refutable fact that Qaddafi himself had nothing personal to gain from uniting Africa. His country was already mineral rich e.g. oil, although there is absolutely no evidence that he sought to manipulate that wealth for himself (even his enemies don't make that accusation against him or least they can't prove it because it doesn't exist!). There's no advantage for him, but there is a huge upside for Africa and Africans to unite and that was Qaddafi's primary motivation. In fact, I would argue it was his militant push for African unity over the last five years that led to the attacks against his regime. Finally, understand what we mean when we say united states of Africa. We are talking about one political government in Africa under an all African committee for political coordination which unites all of Africa's mineral, political, and economic potentital. We're talking about one continental government. One currency, and most importantly, one political government with one Pan-Africanist and socialist objective and agenda for Africa. This makes perfect economic sense because the 54 countries in Africa were created for the most part by Europe to facilitate colonialism, not African self determination so if you understand Africa's history, it shouldn't be a surprise to you why the I.M.F and imperialism control Africa today. It also shouldn't be a surprise that anyone who speaks out against this robbery, like Qaddafi, would be isolated, and eliminated. So there it is......And remember. We have no problem with you disagreeing, but disagree with the facts presented here. One unified socialist Africa....Libya's advancements and position within Africa over the last 42 years. Don't listen to the type of idiots who suggest Qaddafi's death as some sort of victory. If you want an example of how that plays out, look at Iraq. They killed Saddam Hussein 8 years ago and where is Iraq today? Don't let them corportize your brain and don't become a non-thinking idiot. Question them. Question them.....QUESTION THEM!!
I admit that I'm not the most technologically sophisticated person. I mean, I do alright, but I wish someone could help me learn how to post comments live on this blog so that everyone can see the assinine comments I get from right wing idiots with third grade educations. For example, on my post about Malcolm X, these idiots write back calling Malcolm a homosexual and a draft dodger like those are supposed to be some sort of insults or something. Then they call him a nazi as if that makes any sense whatsoever. They also accuse me of using the term racist with no validation. They do that while not at all addressing the many well documented examples of systematic racism that I generate on this blog e.g. systematic discrimination in employment, housing, police brutality, prison sentencing, health, and every other area anyone with half a brain and a sincere desire to find out can confirm. I know why they don't address those points. First, to do so would be to intellectual and scientific, instead of relying on childish rhetoric like they did as it relates to Malcolm's death. Second, they simply don't have an answer for the evidence. They can't refute it so their simplistic response is to make personal accusations against true freedom fighters for justice. If you know how to help me publish these stupid comments, please let me know. I feel like I'm being selfish by keeping these hilarious comments all to myself. rded.
The recently released book by the late Manning Marable, "Malcolm X "A Life Reinvention" adds oil to the fire to expose and resolve the questions surrounding the murder of our beloved brother minister. There are a couple of points that should be made absolutely clear. First, there is overwhelming evidence that the federal government, specifically the FBI, was engaged in extensive espionage against brother Malcolm, his family, and followers. There is significant evidence of ongoing communication and cooperation between the FBI and local police agencies regarding Malcolm's activities, none of which were ever even questioned as illegal in any way for whatever that's worth. It's also clear that the FBI had informants in the highest levels of the Nation of Islam at the time and that these people were functioning at a high level to raise and maintain the level of animosity towards Malcolm in the NOI. Second, it's clear that top NOI officials, acting in conjunction with agitation carried out by FBI people strategically placed within the NOI., organized and carried out the assassination of brother Malcolm (if you know anything about the FBI and intelligence organizations, then you know they regularly assassinate people, but never actually carry out the killings themselves. They have a very well developed system of using surrogates to conduct their dirty work). Third, it's clear that only one of the five participants in the assassination was ever imprisoned and that two innocent men served long prison sentences. As for the other four men? Those lowdown scum have lived in relative peace for the last 46 years, making absolutely no positive contributions to our people's forward progress after robbing us of perhaps the most important and influential proponent of our liberation. As we move towards 50 years since the assassination I reflect on my own feelings of inadequacy and limited value as a youth. I realize now how much institutional racism plagued me and my playmates as children and how lost and alienated I felt as a youth. I remember how discovering Malcolm X at 17 and studying his life gave me inspiration and strength and how I have lived with him as my example of ideological development, personal discipline, and courageous commitment for the last 30+ years. It goes without saying that I have complete contempt for the FBI. As far as I'm concerned their reason for existing is to sabotage any genuine efforts for justice on behalf of oppressed people. I also have absolute contempt for those lowdown scum, living and dead, who worked to sabotage brother Malcolm, including those who may still be within the Nation of Islam today at many different levels of leadership wthin that organization. Those are my personal feelings, but I do call upon African people to study up on this situation. Those who participated in that criminal act against our people should be cast out of our communities. Actually, a whole lot more than that should happen to them, but at the very least, they should be exposed, and cast out. We'll let history take care of the rest. As for Malcolm, I'll continue to do what I've been doing since I was a teenager. Using his example to guide my thinking and actions and working tirelessly to spread his message of Pan-Africanism and revolutionary change and justice. That's what you have to understand about our enemies. They truly believe they can crush a movement by killing it's spokespeople. One day they will see clearly just how wrong they are.
I've recently received quite a few ignorant and misguided responses from White brethen accusing me of being a proponent of liberal thought. There were enough so that it was easier to respond here so lLet me help you confused souls. I'm not a proponent of liberal thought. because to be so would mean I would be a believer in reform for the capitalist system. What I am is a proponent of Nrkumahist/Tureist ideology e.g. Pan-Africanism as my objective ala one unified socialist Africa. I don't believe the amerikkkan capitalist structure can be reformed. It should only be destroyed and replaced by a people before profit socialist construction leading to world communism. This is, in my opinion, the only way to provide what the people need in a system that is controlled by the masses of people. I could tell you more about that, but I just want to go back and comment on the allegations that racism doesn't exist any longer. White people keep saying that, but they are never able to respond intelligently to the clear examples of racism that are provided (for all those who honestly seek answers). First, what other explanation do you have for the fact that Black people get three times the sentence for the same conviction as White people for the same crime? That Black people with the same qualifications as White people are five times less likely to get the job, loan, apartment rental, etc. That Black systematically receive inferior healthcare and services and receive far less pay for the same job as their White counterparts. That Africa, Asia, and Central and South America (and America before 1492) are ignored in academia while Europe is treated as the center of world development and civilization? This is only the tip of the iceberg, but I fear a more indepth analysis would overwhelm you. I'm not trying to be rude or funny. It's just amazing how commonly fashionable it is to be stupid in this society today. One final note, stop accusing me of being against White people. You look so stupid to the multitude of White associates, friends, confidantes, and comrades that I have that follow this site. To my White associates, no need to feel the need to apologize for these idiots. They level those accusations because they have no where else to go. Their arguments are weak, immoral, and dripping with selfishness. They are angry because the people's current reactions against capitalism (see occupy America) are the manifestation of everything I'm saying here. They know their desperate attempt to portray people like me as being against White people is baseless. It must be nice to be White and just deny racism without having to answer to the obvious examples of it's manifestation (and when they do pose an answer it's always the same...Individual progress....e.g. using people like MIchael Jordan to gauge against the masses of poor Black people......How unscientific and stupid!). You may not have to answer now....That's how white privilege works, but before long, you'll have to answer. You can get mad at me for saying that. You can send more stupid responses (which I probably won't answer...It's getting boring), about liberal ideology, but what you should do is sit down and think about why you can't refute what I'm saying. In case you don't know, a refutation is a denial of evidence, not responding to a charge by leveling something ill-relevant, which is what you are doing by responding to racism by charging liberal ideology.....One idiot even accused me of being a liberation theologist! I'm not even a Christian! Amazing!!!! They heard a few weeks of comment about liberation theology after Jeremiah Wright, read a few internet articles about it, and now they are experts on it.......I repeat....Amazing!!!!
Someone posted a comment to my blog on Troy Davis. The person was very concerned about debating the facts around Davis's conviction related to what actually happened when the officer who was killed. The writer ended their response by accusing me and others I suppose of "clinging" to racism. That accusation is so insanely funny to me, but it's one that a lot of White people (and well trained Black people) hide behind. What that writer and many other people are missing is even if Troy Davis was guilty, there's absolutely no defense for the racist methodology in which the so-called justice system is carried out systematically. White people who complain about our anger about that have absolutely no moral ground or credibility to criticize us because the minute one of your relatives is wrongly treated by police you are all over defending your relative, friend, or whomever, and your situations cannot even hold the jock strap of what we experience. People like the writer expose their true ignorance when they state such things (as he did) that we "cling" to racism. The inference there is that we have some reason to hide behind something and make excuses for something. Obviously the writer didn't read this site very carefully. It's impossible to reduce us as angry and misguided. We are scientists at understanding this social problem and we are activists dedicated to eradicating it. The truth is I have manuevered quite successfully through the White corporate world, earning enough money to travel extensively and finance my political work. My point being you can take me and place me in any environment that White people come from and I will do as well, if not better, than any of them. By the same token, there are very few Whites who would last a day in the environment that produced me and that produces millions of African people everyday. I know that. You know that, and we both know each of us knows that. So stop pretending that the problems we talk about are in our head. You've been using that same strategy for 40 years. It's tired and discredited. Stop acting like you have something to defend when we call the system out. Don't you see that your beloved system is in a severe state of decline? Deal with that! It's happening whether you want to admit it or not. Soon you will have no choice. In the meantime, you trying to talk to me about the validity of racism is about as credible as me trying to talk to any mother about the lack of difficulty in childbirth.
