The Black Sentinel On Harry King Live

harry-king-live.jpg

HARRY KING, HOST: Tonight, “The Black Sentinel” Does she hate whites and why does she continue to talk about racism, I mean isn’t it dead already.

KING: Many in the Blogosphere are calling her a racist is she and why with the constant racism talk.

The Black Sentinel responds live — uncut, uncensored, unreal.

It’s all next on HARRY KING LIVE.

We are in Los Angeles with The Black Sentinel.

How are you?

B. SENTINEL: Hi Harry, I’m doing fine thanks.

KING: So I’ve been to your Blog and read a couple of posts and it does have a definite racial theme, does it bother you that people think that you’re racist and are constantly focusing on racism?

B. SENTINEL: You know Harry; I don’t expect people to understand the need I have to point out the disheartening racism which is all around. I am just disgusted that by pointing out the racism, I’m now the racist. It is inexplicable.

KING: Other than that?

B. SENTINEL: I guess I could really care less what these people think of me. I don’t care if they think I am racist or full of hate. My Blog speaks for itself.

KING: Really?

B. SENTINEL: Yeah, really. I’m not sorry — to tell you personally, first of all, I’m not sorry at all. I know you and others feel I should be apologetic for my portrayal of people with a white mindset. But, I have nothing to apologize for; the stink of hypocrisy needs to be shoved in everyone’s face until they gag themselves awake.

KING: All right, let’s discuss this white mindset.

What exactly is a white mindset?

B. SENTINEL: A white mindset is a mindset which is all about the dominant corporate culture which is primarily controlled by white people or non whites that support white privilege.

KING: How do you fix it?

B. SENTINEL: It will take a lot of effort on everyone’s part, no ONE person is going to fix it Harry.

KING: Were these the views,” that you’ve had all of your life?

B. SENTINEL: No, I was part of the white mindset trap myself as a youngster. You are being assimilated all throughout your school days, watching cartoons, movies and television in general. Also, your parents are part of the propaganda machine.

KING: So you had been, would you say, living with an assimilated viewpoint, due to your education?

B. SENTINEL: Well, hell yeah– I graduated from high school or the propaganda machine as I like to call it, thinking that the propaganda you hear about blacks was true to the most part, you know. I mean I dropped the bootstrap talk a lot — and I always felt that if you work hard get a degree things would just fall in your lap. Hell I was stupid.

I’m not that kind of girl. I knew I probably wasn’t hearing the whole story yet. But I thought having that white education was enough, and I didn’t need to know my black roots.

KING: It’s tough to hear, but let’s read a segment of the Blog that landed you in this world of hurt.

This is courtesy of the “Word Press,” which, by the way, made the Blog public.

(BEGIN KING READING BLOG SNIP)

B. SENTINEL SAID: Unfortunately, I believe that you can’t create a system where YOU are subjugating people and enthusiastically denying them equal pieces of the big life pie, then turn around and blame them for the fact that they don’t have a larger piece. All the while rewarding and praising those subjugated fools who decide to help spread the message of confusion, creating a class of people who are full of self hate, doubt and bewilderment. Hard work can only take you so far, then it comes down to whether you fit into white societies definition of an acceptable black, which is one that is a white clone willing to subjugate themselves to white society all neatly packaged in black skin.

(END KING READING BLOG SNIP)

KING: So is this the education you think you were lacking growing up?

B. SENTINEL: Hell yeah, I wish that someone had given me a straightforward look at exactly what is happening in America. A look at the hypocrisy and not fill me up with disdain for my brothers and sisters.

I knew that the propaganda surrounding the black community as a whole was pretty out of control, you know, anything to make us look lazy, shiftless, prone to criminality and just full of stupidity.

KING: How were you able to escape this as you say propaganda machine?

B. SENTINEL: I was watching television with my son and he questioned me as to why blacks were always the bad guy in the movie. He also was being called things in school such as rug head, nigger, chocolate bar and many more. It was disgusting, depressing and seriously eye opening. I thought I was doing right by my son placing him in all white schools away from the inner city where you constantly hear black on black crime stats and the like.

KING: Placing him in all white schools was the problem in your eyes?

B. SENTINEL: I believe so, absolutely. He was being harassed and couldn’t concentrate on getting educated in the things he needed such as math, English, you know the basics. He was getting educated on being assimilated, being discriminated against, being harassed and in being the outcast, the only one like him.

KING: Oh, well don’t you think that black on black crime is a problem too?

B. SENTINEL: Yes, of course any crime is a problem. Yet you never hear about white on white crime which happens with much frequency and in higher numbers. Yet with all the propaganda out here you would think that the only crimes that are being committed are by blacks against blacks. When they put white on white stats on the news every night or each time a white person commits a crime against another white person they scream “white on white crime” then you will see the severity of it as well.

KING: All right, what’s the story between you and the White Sentinel?

B. SENTINEL: Well, the White Sentinel is ridiculous they are just another white mindset individual who is angry at the fact that I am pointing out hypocrisy within a system they are telling us daily is fair. This person uses racism to try and counter factual statements such as blacks are making only 58% what their white counterparts make. Is that fair? Does that sound like I am using racism to make points?

KING: But how did they know you as it seems your site would attract more blacks than whites?

B. SENTINEL: Well, I know for a fact that this person came to my site looking at a post for a video game that I talked about called Resident Evil 5. They commented and didn’t’ like my reply so they decided to, how can I put this nicely, bother me by sending me a lot of their racist friends and such.

KING: Now the reason you didn’t like — or don’t like – the White Sentinel is not that they aren’t black?

B. SENTINEL: No. I don’t care — you know…

KING: That has nothing to do with it?

B. SENTINEL: Nothing to do with it at all. I don’t care what color the person is. In fact I hope that white people as well as the white mindset people, because they are not all one in the same, come to my Blog and get a different take on life.

KING: White and white mindset not one in the same, can you explain?

B. SENTINEL: I thought they were at one time. You know, it is whites who are the problem with racism. Then as I read other Blogs like Brotherpeacemaker and such I found more points of views. And realized that not only whites can enjoy a system that subjugates lots of races do as well and will do what is necessary to protect that system. So there are white people like Donna Lamb or Molly Secours who understand and are enlightened to the plight of all people. So the phrase white mindset is born out of a lack of a better term.

KING: So are you going to continue the Blog undeterred by your protesters?

B. SENTINEL: Exactly right. They are obviously not going to learn anything from me and I sure as hell won’t learn much from them. They have closed minds and anyone who challenges the system is obviously to them someone who needs to be put in check. Unfortunately for them I won’t be put in check so they can bring on all the racists that they can find it won’t stop me from writing what I see in this nation.

KING: Good luck, Black Sentinel. Any last words before we go?

B. Sentinel: Thank you. I hope that more people will understand that pointing out racism doesn’t make you the racist. Just like pointing out a murder does not make you the murderer. I believe that my pointing out racism makes me a racial realist.

Who Absolved America Of Reparations Debt?

reparations.gif

I have been reading a lot about civil rights people who tried to sue large companies that profited from the slave trade such as Aetna, CSX (railroad), New York Life, AIG, J.P. Morgan Chase Manhattan Bank and Fleet Boston, back in 2002. These companies have admitted to the income they made from the slave trade and some have even apologized. Yet they feel that they should not be held liable because in the words of Aetna, “We do not believe a court would permit a lawsuit over events which — however regrettable — occurred hundreds of years ago,” “These issues in no way reflect Aetna today.” And of course it’s obvious that the court didn’t allow the suit or you would have undoubtedly heard of the payout by now.

Yet Swiss banks paid out more than 8 billion dollars to Jews whose families were damaged financially by the holocaust. Most of the people that were maligned had been killed in the concentration camps, so it stands to reason that their families were paid on their behalf. Yad Vashem noted that a fund was set up by the Swiss, as was a Hungarian fund for compensation of Holocaust victims and their heirs. So we see that a horrible wrong was set right by the perpetrators of that wrong. No one says that the Jews should have forgotten about the holocaust or that it was in the past and they should just move on.

These are the words that are constantly told to blacks who would like to see someone pay for the wrongs that were committed by these and other companies upon our families. But, as Aetna says it is regrettable yet it was so long ago and this doesn’t in anyway reflect what is going on with Aetna now. How would people react to a person who murdered someone 20 years ago yet they haven’t committed any similar crimes, come back and says “hey I know that I committed murder however unfortunate, but it occurred about 20 years ago, so this crime in no way reflects the me of today.” Would that be good enough for them to now be exempt from paying for their crime? Of course not, I have seen people put in jail after 50 years of living without committing another crime.

I find that it is interesting that no one has a problem with a white race (the Jews) getting reparations, talking about anti Semitism and actually having holocaust museums, speeches etc. Yet it was so long ago shouldn’t they now be told to move on? I feel that the only time race issues need to be put in the past is when it deals with blacks or Native Americans. Sure people will say well look at the Jews they are doing well. Yes let’s look at how well they are doing. For one thing they immediately got away from their tormentor’s and had a state created for them using someone else’s land, as there is still debate over whether that was or was not theirs to begin with. They were paid reparations so they had something to start over with. They are receiving a large stipend from the United States to continue living well.

So I don’t think that blacks and Jews are even comparable in their situations. I think that if right after slavery was over blacks had been given their own state away from our tormentor’s and reparations we might have had a fighting chance. Yet the Jews in Israel never had to endure Jim Crow, the KKK or discrimination on such a large scale as we see in America with blacks from whites. They had troubles don’t get me wrong. Yet they are in a better spot than most blacks at this time even counting terrorism, since most blacks are living with our own terrorism from overzealous cops who shoot blacks so many times blaming it on contagious shooting. Other forms of terrorism like racial profiling, police violence, racism in our daily lives from work to the grocery store.

Where does this leave us? Well the government of the United States promised the black community reparations of 40 acres and a mule. They have reneged on a debt, so the debt is still owed. I understand that people feel that they had nothing to do with slavery so should not be punished. If you leave a debt unpaid and you have no life insurance, the company will not just say oh well the debtor is gone so we don’t get paid. That company will make sure to get the money from your estate or your family. So why should this debt be any different? Is it because the debt is owed to blacks for their forefathers who have a bill outstanding with the United States? Yet here are all these people constantly talking about fiscal responsibility and how we as a people need to be responsible and repay our debts. Maybe what I am taking from the governments non payment of this debt is that it isn’t really so important to pay back debts especially if I don’t care about the people I owe a debt to.

So sorry AT&T I don’t care much for your company or any of your employees and others receiving your services, so I guess you can just eat my bill, thanks. Now I am sure everyone reading this will think that I need to pay AT&T as they have given me a service three years ago and sent me a bill for closing a cell phone account. Running up that bill was unfortunate and regrettable yet it occurred over three years ago and it in no way reflects who I am as a person right now. I would never run up a cell phone bill now. So how come this can’t work for me? What would happen if everyone decided that the bills they owe no matter how old no longer reflect who they are as a person right now, should they be exempt from paying them back? I bet the government would have a little something to say about that and probably bring back jailing debtors.

So unfortunately I don’t have any hopes of my forefather’s debt ever being repaid. I believe that this if nothing else shows the disdain that America feels for its black population. I am sure that most people feel that America’s support for the holocaust heirs getting retribution and reparations was completely justified. Yet it would be fiscally irresponsible and much too expensive to force companies and even the government who were all involved to pay a back debt to the black heirs of the American slavery holocaust even though we felt it was responsible to see that the Japanese got repaid for being forced into internment camps. Not to mention it is fiscally responsible to enter into a never ending war spending billions upon billions of dollars and it isn’t even helping us as a people. The irresponsibility of this government and its population is ridiculous to say the least.  Unless the debt of reparations payments the government owes has been absolved by ALL blacks, then this debt is still outstanding and the interest is adding up tremendously.

2 4 6 8 Why Do We Discriminate

honklab200.png

Most people find it unacceptable to be called by any type of racial epithet such as the dreaded N word, coon or spook for blacks and cracker, pecker wood or whitey for whites. Then you have chink, slanty or gook for the Asian population. Now these names are totally offensive for most people of these races who actually feel some pride in their race. Yet names such as braves, chiefs, and redskins are thrown about constantly and without one iota of care for the people that they offend.

The minute you start talking about this subject people immediately roll their eyes and start huffing loudly. They are just names of football, baseball and any other sport you can think of. It doesn’t mean anything, they are just names, and they aren’t offensive. They are tradition so the names shouldn’t be changed. If they are offending someone they should get over it. This is the stupid dribble you hear from different sports fans when there is mention of changing the names from some of their favorite teams.

No one would stand for baseball teams called the Colorado Coons, San Francisco Fags or the Portland Pecker woods. Yet the minute you mention the native slurs that we use to refer to our sports teams are offensive to Native Americans people could care less. I have even heard a person say “well they have those casinos they should be happy to be making a ton of money off of us.” How insensitive we are as a human race. Blacks are responsible for racism and the natives are supposed to enjoy and feel honored to have racial slurs that were used to identify them plastered all over the place.

Karl Swanson, who is vice-president of the Washington Redskins professional football team, declared in Sports Illustrated that his team’s name “symbolizes courage, dignity, and leadership,” and that the “Redskins symbolize the greatness and strength of a grand people.” How ridiculous can you be? He actually thinks that this name represents anything except racism is crazy. The name redskin according to history texts was a term that was used for the scalps brought in by white men to collect money for killing Native Americans and proving this with the “red skin” of the scalp thus proving it was a dead Native American.

But listening to Karl Swanson you can see that a person can put spin on any situation and make it sound extremely dignified. I am sure that with that spin Swanson was spewing, he could also have men in blackface dancing during half time and spin it so that they represented the great humor and entertainment value of the great black race. But yet people are quick to follow the leader and believe that since this is the name they have known since childhood we can’t possibly change it. The team just wouldn’t be the same and this is in spite of the fact that it is hurting people.

No one feels that the sports or the sport teams should be somehow ruined, but that we need to rethink our use of derogatory language when naming them. People are complaining about the PC police, yet these people just happen to be the ones who don’t need any protection from this brand of policing. When people start attaching negative words, stereotypes and propaganda to the white race, they will be right there looking for a PC officer to pull out his Billy club and crack some skulls.

No Thanksgiving For Me

thanksgiving-natives.jpg

What exactly is the reason I have to celebrate Thanksgiving? I have sat and pondered that question for years now. I do love to visit with family and just have a family reunion of sort. Yet how do my ancestors who come from African and Native tribes think of this holiday? I understand that people will undoubtedly see this as un-American and un-patriotic or whatever else they can attach an UN to.

Even as a child I wondered why we celebrated this holiday. I wondered this because I lived in the Northwest which has Native American symbols everywhere, from totem poles to long houses down at the Pacific Ocean. Yet, there never seemed to be any Native American’s around. Now I loved the food and the fun, but Thanksgiving was the beginning of the end for the Native people. Think about that, as we sit and celebrate sloth, greed, envy, lust, pride, gluttony, vanity and anger; seven deadly sins according to the Catholics or Christians who are more than likely the main ones celebrating this disgusting tradition.

All for what, a new tribe hit the shores of America which of course had no name since the natives at that time had no concept of ownership. So this new tribe came to “America” looking to escape the tyranny of their home land and was also woefully unprepared to survive this first winter in the new land and had to get the help of the natives. Now if the natives had just left well enough alone they would have died and they would not have lost their land. Yet, being the civilized of the two, they did help and provided them with food and knowledge of farming this much different land. Helped with trade and scouting out the land etc. Yet what did the new tribe do for them? They decided that these people who had helped them and gave of themselves so willingly were savages and unworthy of the right to have this land or just live period.

The next years were probably hell for the natives as the white man tribe set about making sure they took each and every square inch of the land these people lived on and all their resources. The more of them that came the more land and resources they took from the natives. The white man even used germ warfare which gave the natives diseases unknown to this continent and the people, all for greed and some sense of superiority. Yet here we all are celebrating the beginning of the end of a once great people. I guess it is fitting since the people who are writing the history books are the ones who committed the heinous acts and the ones who decided that we should be celebrating it.

I know that people are saying right now that if what happened between the Native Americans and the white pilgrims had not happened that this wouldn’t be the America we all know today. And that would be a bad thing how? I know that my words will be misconstrued into words of hate for whites or hate for America but they aren’t. They are just words of a person who does not fully believe that we should be celebrating the death and destruction of a group of people purely for the greed and superiority of another. I am just refusing to participate or allow my children to participate in such a macabre celebration. I don’t in any way want to end the celebrating of others because that is their right to celebrate any and everything they would want. I am just interested in my family, my ancestors and how we perceive this supposed holiday.

To most it makes no difference, yet if they were to bring a homeless person in for the holidays, clean him up then feed him and then after dinner he decides that you are all unworthy savages and kills you, no one would want to celebrate that day as a great day you were so helpful. But, we all want to do so for the Native Americans. We should all be shamed to do so. So I will again agree to call this day nothing more than the day in which my family decides to get together and visit and eat. Even though to me this is still celebrating a day that deserves no such celebration, just by going through the motions of visiting family I am acquiescing to this gruesome of celebrations.

Was Slavery Black People’s Fault?

slavery_maryland_0327.jpg

Well I am sure this is just the first in a series of posts that I will be doing on my new fan who going by the name Zewb on Live Journal who has created a site titled The White Sentinel. This person was so enthralled with my writing that they decided they had to do a version for the white man. I would say that I am flattered but since this is one of my many racist visitors coming from a racist site called Encyclopedia Dramatica who talked about me in a post of theirs about Resident Evil 5, I actually could care less.

Yet since they have offered to have a lot of their so called friends visit my site for such a lively debate then let’s look at the first post that The White Sentinel has up is titled Slavery is black peoples fault. Unfortunately it was extremely poorly written and with such little if anything to back up the lame content whatsoever. I did expect more since if I were coming out with a counter to someone else’s site, I would make damn sure that the content in those posts would be overwhelming.

First of all White Sentinel believes that my site is a hate site aimed at hating whites. That is a problem with some white mindset people they always feel that anything that sheds light on how things “really” are, they get angry and chalk it up to hate. I don’t hate anyone and I don’t write my Blog to bash white people. I write my Blog to get black people to actually think about the position we are in, why we are in it and how we should be working to get out of it. Now how is that hateful? Now is it my fault that the source of the problems can be traced back to a white mindset? So his/her plan is to counter my pointing out racism with blatant hate speech.

They then go on to write extremely fallible information to try and show how slavery was black peoples fault. He/she starts off with: Everyone seems to believe that the evil white people sailed across the sea to Africa, abducted a bunch of black people, and put them to work in the cotton fields, but that’s simply not what happened. What really happened was the Africans sold their own people into slavery. African kings would wage wars against neighboring states and sell captives to Europeans, who would in turn, sell them to the Americas. Now this is just ridiculous, how did the Europeans get the slaves, by mail order? Of course they had help from some of the African’s to get the slaves, which have never been in question. Yet, the Jews helped the Nazi’s do their thing and no one says that Jews are responsible for the Holocaust. American’s helped train Bin Laden and other Al Qaeda members yet no one blames America for the crimes of 9/11.

So where exactly is he/she going with this? If the Europeans didn’t get the slaves through mail order then they surely must have gotten them from a passing African ship that just happened to be a delivery service for slaves are us. We all know how the slaves came to be in Europeans possession so let’s just move on. Next they go to “The African kings made so much money doing this that they began waging wars for the sole purpose of capturing and selling their own African brethren.” Right because the African Kings didn’t already have whatever they needed at their disposal; it took a bunch of Europeans to give them riches. We don’t really even need to go any further into that one as it is ridiculous. I am sure that the trade was welcome and Africans and Europeans had two different ideas of what enslavement was.

Moving right along they go on to say “White people didn’t enslave anyone. They simply bought slaves that the Africans had captured in war. See now isn’t that just a feel good statement. My ancestors never enslaved anyone; they got them like that already. Yeah, OK let’s go with that then. Since they got them as slaves did that mean they had to continue with it? If they were such a holy and righteous folk, wouldn’t that be against their religion and let them free? I guess not, I guess they just had to take them since the African kings forced those slaves on them.

Those poor Europeans must have said “what, we didn’t come here for slaves; we just came for the beach.” When the Africans got their spears and forced the slaves on them and they went along with it out of sheer terror. How terrible for those Europeans who have been so maligned by this whole slavery fiasco. This whole thing has been just a big misunderstanding and I think the blacks owe them an apology.

Oh, but it gets even better next is “If anything, those captured slaves were lucky; if I had the choice between working in a cotton field and having my limbs hacked off with a machete, I’d put on my overalls and get to work. Yes, those slave were lucky alright, to be saved from crazy machete wielding Africans that didn’t actually have access to any machetes yet. But, hey don’t let that stop them. Yet, we all know that white slave owners frequently used farm tools to hack off the limbs of African slaves who dared to want their freedom. Not to mention that it was considered a disease called “Drapetomania” by Samuel Cartwright (you can read more on Brotherpeacemaker’s “A lifetime of propaganda” when a slave had the nerve to want freedom.

Those great white slave owners treated those slaves like royalty. Why they raped and beat them. Slave owners forced them to never use their mother tongue, or religion lest they be punished severely. The slave master actually decided that they didn’t need clothes so rags would do, and shoes, they didn’t need no stinking shoes. How about food, “ah just give whatever we won’t or don’t eat” is what they were saying. Also, it didn’t matter if the food was rotten such as clabber milk (sour milk), a staple in most black homes or the shacks that they were allowed to cram themselves in.

But, we know that the slave master was so good to them slaves, so good that they refused to let them go because they loved them so much. I am sure that The White Sentinel would love to have put on their overalls and gone right to camp slavery since it was just a big picnic in the park. If I sound like I am being facetious, well you got me. I can’t help but to do so, as this is just plain stupid. So I just could barely answer this post without being so facetious. So take it with a grain of salt and know that this White Sentinel is just nonsense.

Wage Racism Driving Blacks To The Poor House

race-race.jpg

We’re all making more money today says the CNN anchor, yet the gap between blacks and whites are getting wider. The report shows that white women’s pay is up more than five fold while white men stayed relatively stagnant. Black men on the other hand income has dropped yet they touted that income offsets by gains among black women. On CNN’s website the story goes on to say that the average black family was making only 58% of the average white family. They also said that most people think that the playing field for blacks and whites has been leveled.

Marc Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League said that the disparities that we see between the two races is because of inadequate schools in black neighborhoods, workplace discrimination and too many black families with only one parent. It was also noted that middle income blacks were not passing wealth on to their children while white families in middle and poor classes were. This tells of the inherent wealth that comes with white privilege. Even though this factor seems to never get reported.

But ask any person with a white mindset and the playing field “IS” even. Explain that the disparity has existed since slavery ended, the excuses run from blacks don’t have the experience to blacks don’t make education a priority. We have black people such as John McWhorter, Shelby Steele, Bill Cosby and Stanley Crouch who love to say that blacks have the same opportunity as any white person and if we just work hard and pull on our bootstraps we will undoubtedly be just as well off as our white counterpart. Now how is that, when reports like this continue to come out? It is obvious that white business does not feel we are as valuable or worth the same pay as our white counterpart. Neither working hard nor a college education is a guarantee of anything which I spoke to in my article “College Degrees Don’t Ensure Employment For Blacks.”

So where are all these outraged people white and black to protest the fact that the obvious white privilege is getting worse when it comes to being able to support our families? It is interesting how so many people claim that they aren’t racist and they support equal rights, yet what about equal rights to have equaled pay? So now aren’t we in violation of the Universal Declaration where article 23 just happens to state: (2) everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work. I guess this doesn’t apply to blacks in America.

We will send our army out to other nations and force them to follow the Universal declaration yet we won’t bother to force ourselves to uphold it. You constantly hear people complaining about how there are so many inequities for people in different Middle Eastern countries, China or how about North Korea and we are still telling our black community to bend over, shut up and take it. If it wasn’t so pathetic I would laugh since we are a ludicrous nation of people who constantly look at our race problems and say “uh, uh, I don’t see nuthin’, there isn’t anything wrong with our system of living. The status quo is just fine for white folks so what’s the problem?”

Then as soon as blacks get unemployment, welfare or better yet affirmative action then we are the ones looking for a handout or special treatment. Yet, white people having higher wages that are still leaving blacks in the dust isn’t special treatment, white affirmative action or some sort of white only welfare. It seems to me that a serious shake up or shake down of corporate America needs to happen and soon in order for blacks to be able to just get a fair shake and a level playing field. But, if we continue to allow the same people who are putting us in this situation now to “continue” running things, we will never have a fair shake or a level playing field.

Yet like I have said before we as a black community continue to sit idle all the while letting the rapist who have been raping us for years tell us what is or isn’t rape. Letting them take the wheel to drive us to equality when this study shows they have no intention of driving us anywhere except right to the poor house. Let me and others talk of putting an end to this white supremacist run system and then I’m the racist. Talk of blacks getting together to take the catalyst out of our lives and I’m some sort of separatist who wants to ruin the black community by depriving them of white society. Please, you don’t see antelope on the plains of Africa looking to live closer to the lions which ravages their numbers. But somehow this is exactly what whites and blacks with a white mindset would have us do.

Unfortunately, I believe that it is far too late to run, so we must find a way to break free from this tyranny that the people with their white mindsets are placing on us. Level playing field, equality, these are misnomers that those benefiting from there opposites would like for us to believe will be coming one day soon, when in fact they have no intentions of allowing that. What would be gained for them to level the playing field, what benefit would be gotten from equality? Of course the answer is nothing since they are already benefiting from the way thing are now. Since we see they will gain nothing we should know that it is up to us to take it upon ourselves to level the playing field.

An eighteen year old young black man was killed today it seems he was carrying a dangerous and deadly hair brush. That’s right you heard it a hairbrush. It seems the cops started their well known contagious shooting again for a hairbrush that they mistook for a gun. I know whenever I see people on the street with hairbrushes I drop and take cover lest the stray bullets get me. Seriously though, how many of our black youth and men need to die due to overzealous cops and their bad eyesight?

The young man’s mother called the cops due to a family disagreement in which the boy brandished a gun. The 911 operator says she heard the boy claim he had a gun. When the cops showed up the boy had come out of a first floor window. At that point according to the police he didn’t stop moving and they opened fire once they saw he was carrying a dark object under his shirt. Huh? How did they see it was a dark object if it was under his shirt? Anyway this is the reason they felt they needed to open fire on him shooting him about twenty times. Whatever happened to one or two shots then find out if more is necessary.

I can just hear the people with a white mindset having now, hey these things happen, if he hadn’t have been fighting with his family, he wouldn’t have been shot. Also, it wasn’t a racist shooting because (you fill in whatever pathetic tag line used to explain away racism here). Unfortunately, this type of “accidental shooting” doesn’t seem to happen to white men or most other nationalities for that matter. How many men other than black men have things in their hands when the cops show up to a home, I am sure plenty. How about when a cop stops a man that isn’t black do any of them pull out there wallets, yep I bet they do. Yet somehow the greeting of 20 to 50 bullets is only doled out when these encounters happen with black men.

The police are saying that the young man had a history of mental illness and they think that the mother had been trying to get him committed earlier that day. And this is an excuse how? Oh, maybe he was so crazy that “HE” thought he was carrying a gun, so the cops played along and commenced in shooting him as if it “WERE” real. This whole issue of mental illness is beside the point and just another tactic to try and skirt the issue. The issue is, the boy had NO gun and according to plenty of witnesses dropped the brush before the shooting started. They claim that as soon as the boy dropped the brush the cops started shooting him up.

Yet after they shot him twenty or so times they ran over and put their knees in his back, handcuffed him and threw him in the back of the squad car. I guess he was still a danger even if he was full of lead by then. Yet, I would love to know when this type of incident happens to white men and if it did wouldn’t some lawmaker get all riled up and put an immediate stop to the madness. But, since it isn’t white males but black ones nobody gives a damn and thus the killing continues amidst a gaggle of excuses. Then the news will turn around and tell me I should be sad and care when a cop gets shot.

The propaganda tells us that it is a travesty when a person shoots a cop and we should learn about their family and their great service to the community. Whose communities, obviously not the black one, for all I know these cops that are getting shot are the same ones who unload on blacks carrying brushes, wallets and candy bars. The news doesn’t find out this information, but they do find out that the black male/female being shot or tasered or punched and pepper sprayed had a history of mental illness, criminality, or whatever they deem pertinent to showing that they deserved the mistreatment given to them by the cops.

Where the hell is Bill Cosby, he has been in Detroit and the like telling the black community there that they should be cooperating with the police to catch criminals. Well now where is Bill Cosby or any of the other big talkers who always have something bad to say about or to the black community? What do they have to say to the New York police department? Of course, we will never hear a peep out of these folks since it isn’t a problem to kill blacks on a whim. None of them cares unless they can be pointing their finger at blacks at it plays better for the white media.

Pimps Of The Pulpit

 

cropped-big-dollar.jpg

Creflo Dollar wants to help god help you to get rich! Wait a minute, he wants to have you help HIM to get rich, that’s better. Pulpit pimps such as Mr. Dollar have no intention of helping people with their prosperity speak. And just like prostitution the only one who seems to prosper is the pimp. The parishioners are making sure that Mr. Dollar has the best that god has to offer, now what of their living standards? Are their living standards equal to or better than those of Mr. Dollar?

Creflo Dollar was on CNN to defend what it is that he does, which he never exactly explained. He says that he runs his business oops; I mean church by the book. He gives the IRS all necessary paper work in order to track exactly how much money is coming in and how much is going out and where it goes. So he can’t understand exactly why the Senate Finance Committee would be probing him. He says they have all they need and now they are just starting to meddle in church business! And pray tell what would that business be?

Creflo and the rest of these preachers are getting paid big bucks for their sermons because as Creflo will tell you, pimpin’ the pulpit ain’t easy. These so called good Christians are just another piece of the puzzle called get rich off the backs of the believers. They are just as bad as Enron, WorldCom and the Banking and Loan folks. People trusted them and believed in what they said as they cooked the books. Now people believe that by giving my money to this pimp I will be blessed by god to receive all my fondest wishes. I think I would rather rub the genie bottle, at least it was free.

Dollar, who heads the Creflo Dollar Ministries and World Changers Church International in College Park, maybe that should be Money Changers Church International. Anyway, Dollar said during an interview that his spending and the personal spending of other successful mega church pastors should be seen in the context of all the money that they and their congregations raise for the poor and others in need, in line with Christ’s example to love and help others.

“I have given over a hundred cars away to people. I’ve purchased over four or five homes and given them to people. We don’t share that information. I feel like I’m forced to share it right now, because there’s so much assumption in that area of excess versus success. I don’t think that excess is necessarily wrong. Just because something is excessive doesn’t mean it’s wrong. It’s just based on how you obtain that excess. If you didn’t obtain it in a wrong way, and you worked hard, and you did things right and legal and up-front and open, excess is not necessarily wrong. “I have given over a hundred cars away to people. I’ve purchased over four or five homes and given them to people.

Creflo also has preached that it is a curse to be poor. God wants everyone to be wealthy. Yet wasn’t Jesus poor? And wasn’t that by choice or was he cursed by his own father? Also, does Mr. Dollar really think that ALL people can be rich? That is impossible or maybe just implausible. There can only be so many rich people due to the fact that if everyone were rich then rich would have no meaning, we would all just be, since there would be nothing to compare it to. In order to have rich there must be poor.

You have to look at these pimps and wonder how much is too much. When is enough, enough? Do you really need to lord over your parishioners like a sultan or king. In the bible it speaks of preachers living humbly. What ever happened to that, or has that been taken out of the bible? Corinthians 9:18, What then is my reward? Just this: that in preaching the gospel I may offer it free of charge, and so not misuse my rights as a preacher of the gospel.

Toys To Die For

ticklemeelmo.jpg

Well I guess the importing; outsourcing pain has come home to roost so to speak. Recalls of our children’s toys are on the rise. It seems that toys coming in from China are tainted to say the least. Lead had been the big worry but now your kids might be ingesting the date rape drug GHB. What’s next we will have an influx of wonder woman dolls that are the heroin instead of heroine. The only people we have to blame are ourselves for allowing our lawmakers to sanction exporting all of our manufacturing to China and elsewhere.

Yet this is not a phenomenon that will happen over and over since we are in such a consumer driven society. We are out buying our children every little bobble that catches their eye. Never has society as a whole been so seduced by materialism. And it is this materialism that is making our kids sick, brain damaged and dead. The amount of name brand garbage that is pushed on kids from the moment they are old enough to set eyes on the television numbers in the millions. From Dora the Explorer to Elmo, our kids are bombarded like being in a game of dodge ball.

All I see and hear from magazines and mothering shows is everything that you need to buy for your baby, child, pre-teen, teen and young adult. I receive a popular baby magazine and one of the feature stories is baby must haves. It is just a large advertisement for all the unnecessary items that all the different companies are pushing. Yet the one thing that you don’t see is stories that feature items made in the US because that would be few.

The latest toy recall is the Aqua Dots which allows kids to stick dots together using water making fun shapes and pictures. Well it seems that if the kid ingests the Aqua Dots they will turn into GHB through a weird chemical reaction in the body. The children that have ingested these have either gone into a coma or died. The list for these recalled toys is probably longer than Santa Claus’s list. There are all manners of toys on the list from baby beds due to lead to older kids building sets.

Is our relationship with the Chinese toy manufacturers more important than our children that our own government won’t shut this obvious hazardous situation down? Because it seems to me that these companies who have their manufacturing going on over seas should be getting fined. But, I have always felt that if a company wants to bypass American workers so they can go cheap and dangerous they should be fined to bring that crap back into the country. I understand that this is extremely controversial but we are effectively un-employing American’s in order to maximize profits.

Racism In Affirmative Action

p-admi-large.gif

I think that people of all races and nationalities are confused as to exactly what affirmative action is and who it benefits. Because, people are constantly pointing to affirmative action in order to show that whites are being discriminated due its use. According to Wikipedia Affirmative Action refers to policies intended to promote access to education or employment aimed at a historically socio-politically non-dominant group (typically, minorities or women). That brings up the statements that blacks don’t need anything else since they have received enough through affirmative action and welfare etc.

According to Donna Lamb the persons benefiting most from affirmative action is white women. Yet when a white man does not get a job for any reason he never looks to the white woman and says that the company discriminated against him to hire her, it is always that the company hired a black. Not just any black but some black who of course he (white man) knows is not nearly as qualified as he is. The white person never gives the reason they believe this black person is under qualified. Does having black skin make this person under qualified or did they have privilege to see his credentials and that is the reason they can make that statement.

Let’s talk about affirmative action and how it has been benefiting white people since the day they stole this land from the native man. When white society decided to promote access to education, employment and land ownership to whites only and deny this opportunity to the original land owners and blacks, they were in effect using a type of affirmative action to further their status. Westward expansion or manifest destiny was another such affirmative action or welfare program utilized by white Americans. This program worked by giving or selling land out west to majority white settlers to start homesteading. This land is still flowing down from white forefathers today. Jim Crow and other discrimination practices were also a form of affirmative action by allowing whites to get ahead by giving good paying jobs etc. for white only.

Even today in the higher paying workforce you see that it is predominantly white. Of course people will say that this could be that only whites apply due to the lack of qualifications from blacks and other minorities. Yet if education was an equal opportunity blacks and other minorities would be qualified and applying for these jobs. The unequal education system is a large part of the problem with employment disparities. With blacks and minorities living most often in the inner cities where education and any form of civic government funds are severely lacking and all the while their white suburban counterparts are flourishing. Even if you took all the tax money for schools and put them in a big pot then doled them out equally amongst all schools you would still have disparities. The reason the disparity would last is that the inner city schools are falling apart, barely have competent staff, and lacking in all equipment. The schools in the inner city would have to play catch up still before they could compete, yet no one really wants them to compete or we would fix the mess.

Then you have the people who believe that blacks were given enough just by welfare alone. Now this statement in itself is racist yet let’s tackles it anyway. Through this statement a person is assuming that 100% of blacks have, are or will be on welfare in their lifetime and that is 100% false. Even if they were it wouldn’t amount to the same dollar figure that whites are handing down to their children in inherent wealth meaning land ownership, paid college tuitions, first home down payments and any number of things that undoubtedly came from all the affirmative actions they have benefited from. Not to mention the future wealth due to continued affirmative action where whites continue to benefit from the disparities of society due to white privilege.

But, no matter how much you give people this type of information they will continue to look at affirmative action as if it is giving blacks some unfair advantage. With businesses continuing to be dominated by white people these so called advantages blacks have are extremely hard to see. Only when white privilege in work, education and health care are removed will we see an actual improvement in the lives of blacks and other minorities. Yet, so many people with a white mindset which can be any race of people are hell bent on keeping the status quo thereby keeping whites in a dominating position everywhere in our society.
