NWA Film promotes self hatred and gangster mentality! I miss the old Ice Cube!

NWA Film

There’s been a lot of talk about the new biopic about rap group NWA. The film is called Straight Outta Compton. It’s been getting a lot of buzz the last few months. Being from the west coast I grew up listening to NWA as a teenager. All my friends loved the way they spoke about the gangster lifestyle in Compton,California. As a kid I wasn’t that socially aware of what NWA was really putting into my mind.  It wasn’t so much the profanity. I heard people cursing at home with family and friends.  It was more what image NWA was showing to the world.  Their music promoted black self-hate,drug and alcohol abuse,disrespect of black women and sexual promiscuity. Yes they really were NIggaz With Attitudes. But they basically promoted a lot of negative racial stereotypes. I know there will be those who will say…what about their most famous song F*ck Tha Police? Yes that was a groundbreaking song back in 1988. It highlighted how the racist police brutalize and kill black people.  I give them some props for bringing that to light.  As we all know the cops are still killing black people and not much as changed in that regard.  But even with that in mind,they still promoted the image of the black thug to the world. They got rich in the process and became household names.  But I can’t let them totally off the hook.  As I got older I started listening to other rappers from the east coast.  I liked a lot of the more pro-black,Afrocentric rappers. Rappers like Public Enemy,Brand Nubian,X Clan,KRS ONE,Jungle Brothers,Poor Righteous Teachers,A Tribe Called Quest,Black Sheep,De La Soul and Queen Latifah. Some of you may not be that familiar with these groups. I suggest you look them up.  I became drawn to these more socially conscious rappers who spoke about black pride and loving your African heritage. And I loved when Public Enemy released Fight The Power.  It’s still a very powerful song to this day. So where is the Public Enemy film??  I don’t think the powers that be will ever make one. The racist whites/Jews that run Hollywood don’t want to promote a film about a group that is trying  to WAKE UP black people. A group that doesn’t glorify anti-blackness,gangster attitudes and calling ourselves niggas.  That is the real reason this NWA film is being made.  It’s to keep instilling self-hatred into black minds.  That’s what Hollywood does best.

The group consisted of Dr. Dre,Ice Cube,Eazy E,DJ Yella and MC Ren. I’m sure the men and their families are glad their story is being told.  But I suspect it will be seriously watered down so that middle America(white) can enjoy it. It will be very sanitized in my opinion. Ice Cube was one of the primary writers of the group. I always thought he was the most talented behind the mic. While Dre was the master producer.  I miss the old Ice Cube though. When he left the group and went solo he had come groundbreaking albums. Albums like Death Certificate,Amerikkka’s Most Wanted,The Predator and Lethal Injection. But over the last ten years he’s really gotten soft. He has started doing films like Barbershop,Are We There Yet,21 Jump Street and Ride Along.  A bunch of silly ass Hollywood films. He was so outspoken in the early 1990’s. His music used to get me hyped up.  He wasn’t afraid to speak his mind about racism,police brutality and dissing The President if he felt like it.  Now he’s a complete Hollywood sellout! I don’t think I’ll be supporting this film. I think I’ll keep my money.

I used to love this song called True to The Game.  It’s funny to listen to now because it sounds like he’s almost describing himself.  He’s become  just another Hollywood sellout coon!

I’m glad Khalid Muhammad put his ass on blast!!!

The Butler- Why are we still playing butlers and maids?

Butler
On August 16 a new film will be released. The Butler is just the latest film in Hollywood propaganda. It’s the story of a butler(Cecil Gaines) who served eight presidents from 1952-1986.The producers made sure to put a lot of black celebrities in it so that black people will flock to the theaters in droves. It stars Forest Whitaker as the main character,Cecil Gaines. With Oprah Winfrey playing his wife.It also stars Lenny Kravitz,Cuba Gooding Jr,David Oyelowo,Terrence Howard and Yaya Alafia. Even Mariah Carey has a small cameo in the film. Don’t worry though,there are white people in the film as well. We don’t want people to think this is a “black film”. Most of the white men in the film are playing the Presidents. Actors like Alan Rickman,Liev Schreiber,Robin Williams and James Mardsen.And of course this film is by director Lee “Monster’s Ball” Daniels. This homosexual self-hating director is doing everything he can to degrade the image of black people. If Monster’s Ball and Precious weren’t enough,now we have this garbage in theaters. There are so many great uplifting stories to tell black children. There are great black heroes and African heroes in our history. We had civilizations long before we ever had contact with Europeans. Hollywood makes great films that put their history in a positive light. Stories about the Romans and Greek empires. They make films that give them a sense of pride showing themselves as great warriors. Films like Gladiator,Lords of the Rings,Alexander and 300. And what do we get. Think Like a Man? Booty Call? Barbershop? Madea Goes to Jail?? This is a disgrace! And Hollywood is very slick. They know black people will most likely see this film if they hype it up enough and put big black stars in it. Please do NOT spend your money on this film. We have to let our voices be heard. Let Hollywood know that we are hip to this game they’re playing with us. They keep making films like this to keep us in a subservient mindset. Don’t fall for it.
They keep telling us that times have changed. Have they really changed? Back in the 20’s and 30’s black women like Hattie McDaniel had to play maids. I realize the acting opportunities were limited back then.
The Help1
If that’s true then how do you explain films like The Help?
The Help2
We don’t want to admit it but nothing has really changed. This is nothing but the refinement of white supremacy. We are still playing maids,butlers,thugs,pimps,whores,gang members and drug dealers. What makes this film so bad is how they try to gloss it up like playing a butler is so regal and grand. I watched the trailer and they play this moving sentimental music in it. I had to hold back my laughter. I could hardly keep a straight face. And I’ve watched some of the interviews with the black actors in this film. Look at this video of Cuba Gooding Jr and Lenny Kravitz. It’s really funny watching these two clowns try to explain how playing a butler is such a honor. See how long you can watch it before you start laughing.

Another thing I noticed in the trailer is actor David Oyelowo plays the son of Forest Whitaker. He gets involved in the civil rights movement and eventually becomes militant and joins the Black Panthers. Needless to say,he and his father don’t see eye to eye politically. There’s a scene at the dinner table where he and his father get into an argument. He insults his father and then his mother(Oprah Winfrey) slaps him across the face! She then tells him “Everything you have is because of that butler!” It’s a very powerful scene. But it’s also very telling. By having the mother slap the militant son it’s telling black people to not fight back. The son is portrayed as the villain and is not following the “right path”. The film is telling black people to be more like the butler. In other words,black people should not fight back but just be quiet and obey your white oppressors. We should “suffer in silence”. This is white supremacy and Hollywood propaganda at it’s finest.
Some might say that I’m overreacting because I haven’t seen the film. But I don’t have to see it to know it’s propaganda. I’ve seen Hollywood do this time and time again. And I’m really quite sick of it. I’m tired of seeing my people portrayed this way. Films like this are nothing but mind control. And all these black actors know it as well. But they just want a paycheck. Here’s a video from a brother named Solomon on Youtube. I totally agree with his all his points about this film.

The truth is we need our own film studios. That way we can write and produce the stories we want to tell. And when I say studios I’m talking about black owned and operated film production companies. Tyler Perry has his own film company and Oprah Winfrey has her cable station OWN. But they are still backed by white/Jewish owners. Which means if Oprah or Tyler tried to tell a story that was too powerful,positive and uplifting about black people—their white slave owners could tell them not to make it. I must be telling the truth because look at the irrelevant material that Oprah and Tyler produce. Tyler with his silly sitcoms that reinforce negative black stereotypes. And Oprah doing her exclusive interviews with Lance Armstrong and Rihanna. These are topics that are totally irrelevant to the struggles of black people. We are facing unemployment,suicide,drug addiction,police brutality,genocide,AIDS and imprisonment. Meanwhile Oprah is interviewing Lindsay Lohan?! Come on Oprah, get with it!
Like I said that means we need independent studios so no one can tell us what stories to tell or how to tell it. There are so many stories about black doctors,teachers,inventors and scientists that could be told. Where are the big motion pictures about Ida B. Wells,Dred Scott,Booker T. Washington,Charles Drew,Adam Clayton Powell Jr,Martin Delaney,Kwame Ture,Althea Gibson,Marcus Garvey,Harriet Tubman,Madame C.J. Walker and Fannie Lou Hamer? Where are the films about great Africans like Askia Toure,Queen Tiye,Yaa Asantewa,Idris Alooma,Taharka,Funmilayo Ransome Kuti,Kwame Nkrumah,Queen Nzinga,Khufu and Queen Nefertiti? We should be proud of such a rich and beautiful history. We have a history of black men and women who fought for justice,truth and black liberation. We can’t expect our oppressors to tell the stories of our people in the correct manner. If anything they will most likely alter and distort the legacies of our great leaders,teachers and freedom fighters. Now after looking at this short list of great black people in history I ask you again…..Why are we still playing butlers and maids?
