Sprinting To Hell, In Gasoline Underwear

 

minutemen-rally-2-709064.jpg

Actually I was typing out my post on the fact that there is a serious lack of diversity on channels such as the Discovery channel, TLC etc. when I ran across a Blog on my tag surfer called Sprinting to hell. The title of the post that caught my attention was called Reverse Racism and Me. Now you know that this title attracted me like candy to a kid, and I had to read it. My mistake! Anyhow, I made an even bigger mistake of answering to some of the comments made in the post that just made my head spin.

This fellow Josh who is the author of the post says in a comment that he doesn’t promote racism he just doesn’t want to take responsibility for black peoples problems. Yet in the post there are all kinds of statements like this: “My next topic: racism and why I hate your race. Ok, maybe I don’t hate your race, but I’m about sick and tired of hearing about how white people are keeping black people down. We aren’t. Black people in America: you have a culture based on ignorance and violence, so suck it and go to fucking school. And maybe if you have some extra time, learn to speak English. Nope, he doesn’t promote racism he is just pretends to in his Blog.

Now I could care less if Josh or any other person hates or doesn’t hate blacks. I am just tired of the whole “blacks need to take responsibility and do this or that” comments, or the “whites aren’t keeping blacks down” crap. Since we hear these same comments over and over from various white people, we can make a small leap and say yes, whites are keeping blacks down. See racists who may be in positions of power keep blacks down by subscribing to the same descriptions of blacks by Josh, that they are ignorant, violent, lack structured education and don’t speak English. We can safely garner that these Josh minded people probably wouldn’t be hiring a bunch of ignorant, violent, structured education lacking, unable to speak English people, which according to the Josh minded is synonymous with black culture thus black people.

He goes on to talk about blacks telling other blacks to vote for Obama simply because he is black. All I could do was laugh at this one since he says things such as “Can you even imagine if a white republican had said the same exact thing about Fred Thompson? Or fucking Bush for that matter. Forget you political affiliation for one minute and just imagine if Rush Limbaugh has told his listeners to vote for Fred Thompson because they should feel obligated to support their white community over any political views he might have? See what is so funny? Anyway, we all know Rush Limbaugh has said this type of thing, so has Bill O’Reilly and others. Also, since every person running for president has been a white male there really hasn’t been a need for whites to tell each other that. But, I don’t get a sense that Josh cares that the Mormons are telling Mormons to vote Romney who just so happens to be a Mormon. Where is the outrage, oh, and they’re mostly white!

Then he had to go into a stint on Jena 6 and the Duke Lacrosse case, YAWN! Yet with the Duke case he says: “Yeah, you jumped on her side cause she was a poor black victim, but it turns out she was just a trashy whore trying to extort money from the rich white boys from the next college over by playing the race card. I never heard a single word from either one of them after it came forth that she was lying. Tools. I could care less if he thinks they are tools, as they probably are. But, he acts as if this is the epitome of someone lying on people of another race. Did he forget Susan Smith who killed her kids and blamed it on a black man, Charles Stuart shot his pregnant wife in the head and blamed a black man, Jesse Anderson killed his wife stabbed himself and blamed two black men, Robert Harris hired a hit man to kill his fiancé for insurance and blamed it on a black man. There are so many more going all the way back to slavery yet wow we should be all concerned over the lying stripper, how many black men were lynched behind some lying skank, too many to count.

This is the money shot: “Here’s the deal. I’m not sorry your ancestors were enslaved. I’m not sorry your ancestors had to endure the civil rights era. I’m not sorry that shit in America is still tense. I couldn’t give a fuck less about any of the hardships your race has ever endured. Why should I be sorry that my ancestors were far superior to yours? In fact why shouldn’t I be proud of that? The Africans were chucking spears at each other when my people had guns and ships that could sail the Atlantic. My ancestors conquered the globe while yours degenerated into a continent devoured by civil war, and an American culture dominated by ignorance, violence, and the same tribalistic mindset that got you shackled and shipped over here in the first place. What if anything can you even say to this comedy driven rant?

He then goes on to say how he has been the victim of black on white hate crime. WHAAAA! Can you imagine with the crap this guy talks I am not at all surprised that someone put the beat down on him. I know that people shouldn’t commit assault and battery but like Chris Rock said, I can understand. He then ends his post with a bunch of ranting about popping a mouthy bitch in her mouth etc. But, what I find so poetic and funny is that he has a new post in which he talks about: “Tomorrow and Thursday I have court in the morning, and again next week. I have a slew of charges still pending. I may very well be getting locked up tomorrow. If I disappear for a while, that is why. I am not dead yet, I might just be spending a little time in the Wake county Hilton. Yep, blacks are the criminals, and yet none of my family or friends is being treated to the proverbial hot seat in a court room. I guess I can say that I know someone involved in the court system since my sister is an attorney who prosecutes criminals like Josh. Since he has been in the joint (slang for prison, right Josh) he undoubtedly knows he will be surrounded by a bunch of those ignorant, violent, structured education lacking, unable to speak English people and they probably won’t take to kindly to his assessment of them.

Mall Murdering Misfit’s Transformation

mall.jpg

Isn’t this an interesting turn of events that Robert Hawkins is all over the news after killing eight people and wounding five others, is being talked about as if he was such a tortured soul and worthy of our sympathy. Yet what sympathy was shown for Kiehl Coppin who also had mental problems yet was shot by police in a hail of twenty bullets after seeing what they thought was a gun which in reality was only a hairbrush. What do we know of his background except the fact that the police claim he said over and over that he “wanted” to die.

As I watch the news this morning every station is doing stories on Robert Hawkins background, the fact that he broke up with his girlfriend, lost his job and overall felt like a burden to those around him. Now tell me again what was the problem with Kiehl Coppin? What was his dilemma that caused him to act out on that faithful day the cops decided he needed twenty bullets as the cure. How many people did Kiehl kill that made him so detested by the news who could only point the finger at him and say that he “was” the problem. He as well as Robert couldn’t get healthcare for their mental dilemmas yet only one of them is seen as a case for why mental health needs closer scrutiny.

One news caster actually stated “how sad this young life ended feeling so tortured that he actually had to pick up a gun and do something so heinous to feel he mattered.” He was even described as “introverted, a troubled young man who was like a lost pound puppy that nobody wanted.” Exactly how tortured was poor Kiehl who was in his own home feeling poorly and in desperate need of mental care or maybe he was a lost puppy that it seems his mother wanted. In fact the only things that news casters reported about Kiehl was he had a history of violence, mental illness and arrests.

This is the second day that we are seeing around the clock coverage talking about Robert Hawkins and his tortured background and we saw all of about a few hours of coverage for a murder by cop victim who had a similar background just the wrong skin color. I am always fascinated as to what makes one person a media darling and the other a media pariah. Maybe if Kiehl had gotten a gun climbed the clock tower and taken out the town he would have gotten a little more sympathy from the news, media and people in general.

As I read the Blogs about both situations it became increasingly clear that this was a case of racial differences. I read more than a few comments for Kiehl that said “So a mentally deficient nigger is shot dead for not following directions. I can’t find the tears for this, LIBS.” And “His own mother called the cops saying he was threatening her life. People making a big deal about this are probably a bunch of criminal rats themselves.” These were taken from halfricanrevolution. Yet the comments heard for Robert are ones of sorrow even linking what he did to the fact that he was taking anti depressants and that was the reason for his outburst. Even his old school principal where he dropped out of school said he was a good kid and never ever showed any violence towards neither students nor teachers.

How many of Kiehl’s family, friends, teachers or principals did the press or anyone else talk with in order to find out what a tortured soul he was? Did they even care or was the whole point of coverage meant to show how the cops did what was necessary to stop what they felt was a dangerous and violent person who may have had a gun. When are we going to stop having this black equals guilty, bad or just plain doesn’t matter attitude when it comes to victims and perpetrators. If we are going to look at the fact that one mentally deranged person is becoming the martyr that he wanted while another deranged person is just gunned down without anyone’s pity, let’s just take out all the discrepancies and report the crime and be done with it all.

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.

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.

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.

Stanley Crouch’s Latest Rant On The Black Community

american-gangster11.jpg

I was looking at Booker Rising a Blog for our right of center African American friends as it gives me such fodder for my own posts. Stanley Crouch has a story titled “What a Crime: Denzel and friends pretty up a Drug Thug.” Stanley feels that this real life gangster Frank Lucas was given qualities that he just didn’t have and thus making him more seductive to the black youth who will undoubtedly rush right out and watch this black American Gangster. He feels that Denzel’s portrayal of Frank Lucas shows him as a “soft-spoken and sophisticated man who closely studies the written word and only explodes into violence every now and then.” Yet he was in actuality an illiterate thug who was super violent even putting a hit out on his own brother only to squash it since his mother was already grieving the death of another son.

Movies such as Casino, The Godfather trilogy, Goodfellas, Once Upon A Time In America, Traffic, Prizi’s Honor, The Transporter, Pulp Fiction, Scarface, Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs, Carlito’s Way and for television the Soprano’s are all a bunch of extremely violent films that glorified drug use, drug sales, prison life and of course murder on an astronomical scale. I don’t think that this one will be any different. There have been super violent black gangster movies as well such as Sugar Hill, Menace 2 Society, Colors, Boyz In The Hood, Juice, New Jack City and Super fly. Yet they did not spark a real increase in the inner city violence which has been going strong for a while.

According to Stanley, “That such icy qualities are not in the movie makes it a highly crafted piece of poisonous eye candy.” He obviously feels that our black youth are so vulnerable and so pathetic that they lack the sophistication of white kids to see a movie and not run home to the “ghetto” and start shooting it out gangster style. White kids as well as black watch these movies to almost excess and yet no one attributes any abhorrent behaviors white kids do to this. What is the reason for this; black kids are unable to distinguish reality from fiction or are they just more prone to mimicking gangster type violence.

Stanley also comments that Washington should be more responsible in the roles he chooses due to the influence on our youth. The movie the Basketball Diaries was a dead ringer for the Columbine school shootings yet where was Mr. Crouch, to point out that Leonardo DiCaprio should have been more responsible in the movie roles he decides to play since he is very influential in the lives of a lot of young teens. Doing a little research for this film I looked up whether or not inner city violence go up after any of these films and the answer was a resounding NO. Not any instances of any increase or decrease in any violence after super violent films were released. That should put Stanley’s mind at ease to find out that our kids really aren’t that stupid after all and no that reality and fantasy are separate.

With his conservative views he should understand that the movie isn’t a direct correlation of the real life events because that isn’t what makes money. This is all about the bottom line with movies. These people that are funding these films are out to make money not tell the real story of some supposed illiterate black gangster. This is capitalism at its best and since most conservatives have a firm base in money he shouldn’t be asking such idiotic questions as to why they didn’t portray him straight from history. Hell even our presidents are given larger than life stories to make them historically greater than they were. Did Washington admit to cutting down the cherry tree because he couldn’t tell a lie? Or would it be better to portray him as the hateful slave owner who subjugated untold amounts of blacks? No, money talks and that is the bottom line on this movie, making more money and that is inherently American. Maybe Stanley should stick to critiquing jazz instead of movies.

Pointing Out Racism Makes Me The Racist

water11.jpg

I have been doing a lot of Blog surfing and commenting when I couldn’t stomach the tripe that seems to be served up when it comes to racism and whites. It seems that the whites commenting on those Blogs have more of a problem with people actually pointing out racism than they do with the actual racism. It was so bad that one commenter actually said “number 1 for me is not the nig word BUT the fact that he was having a PRIVATE conversation when some ass hole invaded his privacy.” Now how would this sound if I used this with the recent news of Chester Stiles who raped a three year old girl and videoed the sick event and the tape being given to the FBI so the perpetrator could be apprehended. Now using this one white person’s comment we should all be mad at the person who gave up the tape after all Chester did make it in the privacy of his own home.

But this wasn’t even the worse of it. The one thing that seemed to bother me most was that the majority of the white people commenting felt the need to tell me that it isn’t racism that plagues blacks and exactly how black people can improve themselves so they won’t have any problems that mimic racism. Not only this but what blacks are doing that holds them down. Now we all know that the crap they were spewing was the same propaganda that you see on the news and more likely FOX news to be exact. Such as blacks need to stop wearing their pants around their knees, stop committing all these crimes and end up in jail, black parents don’t teach their kids right from wrong, and we are all sitting on welfare etc. Then you point out the stupidity in the statements only to be told that you are the problem with the black community, you know all this talk of racism and I’m holding the black race back.

Funny I didn’t know that a black person looking at racism keeps other blacks from obtaining jobs, healthcare and education. Anyway a person said “If he is racist – and doesn’t broadcast it to the public – that is his right. He is entitled to think anything he wants to as long as he doesn’t hurt anyone.” It does hurt people. How, well because it won’t stay in the home, so when these men that actually have power are these so called at home racists they bring these feelings to work and blacks get shafted out of decent jobs, healthcare and education. So isn’t that hurting someone or does that matter? These people are so consumed with the fact that they believe that racism is not an issue, because for them it isn’t, that no matter what the racist scenario is, it wouldn’t be racist at all.

This one is my favorite for sure, “If a business owner works their butt off to build a business and writes checks to employees to work in that business, they have the right to hire the employees that they feel will help them build their business. Getting hired isn’t a “right” anymore than driving is.” What a simplistic view that does not look at the big picture. We already see that the majority of companies are predominantly white so according to her they should be completely white if that is what the company owner wants. But, there are laws that prohibit companies from this exact behavior. So if she believes that companies should be able to go all white which is essentially what this will boil down to since most companies only have the law required amount of blacks; then she believes that the blacks who don’t get hired should either live in extreme poverty and on welfare start turning to crime. Or maybe they should all go work at McDonald’s like one of them told me we should be doing.

Yet these are the same people who will swear they are neither racist nor prejudiced and want nothing more than to have equality rain supreme. But with the things that they say, it is almost like they are ignoring or forgiving the racist due to having the same feelings. None can tell me what happened and when to level the playing between blacks and whites. And until we level this playing field then the disparity between blacks and whites will continue. We will continue to support the racist and demonize the whistle blower because they invaded someone’s privacy thus the status quo will be safe for another days subjugation of black people.

Sextra Credit Becomes Deadly

ht_kelsey_071031_ms.jpg

The report out today is that there are some 2,570 cases that were reported over a 5 year span. And according to ABC news about 10 percent of all children boys and girls, in kindergarten through 11th grade have reported receiving some sort of sexual harassment by an adult while in school. About 7 percent of those cases involved physical abuse, said Charol Shakeshaft, an education professor at Hofstra University and author of a congressionally mandated study on teacher misconduct for the Department of Education.Just think of the amounts that are not reported. Now we have another teacher running off with a 13 year old boy. And finally a death comes from a teacher’s sextra credit, where the teacher’s husband shot to death the teen student that his wife was molesting. This poor boy was victimized twice, once by the teacher then by her husband. When are we going to get tough on these perverts who are running into the teaching profession?

abc_gma_teacher_070318_sp.jpg

The way we are handling these teachers is akin to how the Catholic Church handled the hordes of perverted men who ran to join the priesthood and thus began the molestation scandals there. Mary Kay Letourneau convicted child rapist recently did an interview saying that she understood why these teachers are running away. She said that instead of allowing her to be separated from her children, she bore with her then 12 year old lover; she would have run off as well. The sentences are slim to none for these perverted teachers so that it is a no brainer as to why others come up the ranks and do the same thing. Schools at this point seem to be a haven for pedophiles. There are so many cases that it should be looked at like a serious epidemic in the school system. They can start calling the schools systems motto no child left un-sexed. Maybe the schools don’t want to take the time to pay attention to what these teachers are doing or maybe they are choosing to overlook it so as not to have scandal raging around their schools. Whatever it is, the schools are woefully ill at protecting our children.

I am going to raise another view on this issue and that is the race of the perpetrators because I really think that if the majority of these teachers were Black, the powers that be would put a stop to this behavior immediately. We see from the numbers on crime that Blacks are far more likely to face jail time and harsher penalties for the very same crimes committed by Whites. So why hasn’t there been a tidy little catch phrase like Black on Black crime, how about we call it White teacher on student crime. Now each time a teacher does her or his thing with a student we can talk about how White teacher on student crime is out of control. Because, isn’t it really out of control? I am sure that a lot of people will read this part and feel that this is problematic. But I am looking at the fact that when something that America feels is a problem is being perpetrated by a few more Blacks than Whites it is worthy of a catch phrase. Such as with the baggy pants epidemic, aren’t White kids in White areas wearing their clothes the same way?

Until we start severely punishing these pedophiles, because that is what they are, this type of behavior will continue until it is down to our pre-school and kindergarten children. Instead of looking at it as a victimless crime when boys are molested by female teachers we should look at this problem the same way we see male teacher on female student crime. I for one will continue to bring this White teacher on student crime to the attention of all who wish to read about it. We need to start asking our law makers what exactly is it they plan to do to fix this problem. Until we see the disparity of crime in America no one will lift a finger to do anything about any problem involving a large number of White people victimizing others. If you would like more information on White crime statistics please refer to a couple of posts that I found highly informative, Read them and weep, Statistical rates are not real numbers, Raw numbers don’t lie , and Black crime statistics are hopelessly screwed, I mean skewed . All these posts talk about the ridiculousness of crime statistics how they hurt us all in America.
