I stumbled upon this video earlier this week. I had to post this. It’s some Native Americans going at it with some white journalists. I love the way this woman put them in their place! She shut these white devils up! This is how you speak truth to these bastards. It got real quiet when she start talking about colonization and how the land is stolen. At one point she even tells the white female journalist that if it wasn’t for them they would be homeless! She really put those fools on blast! This is speaking TRUTH to power. This is how black people need to speak when confronted by these lowlifes. Don’t be afraid of them. They cower and run like roaches when confronted with FACTS. They don’t like to hear about their murderous his-story. And they didn’t like it at all.The video is only about four minutes long. Check it out and let me know what you think.
Yesterday former NFL running back OJ Simpson was given parole. Simpson played college football at the University of Southern California and professional football for the Buffalo Bills(1969-77). After retiring from football he became an actor. He appeared in television shows like Roots,Fire Power and films like Naked Gun. Back in 1995 Simpson was on trail for a double murder. He was on trial for the murders of his ex wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. Simpson was found not guilty and the media has been obsessed with Simpson ever since. Most whites feel he’s guilty. Even many blacks think he’s guilty. But many black people across the country were happy at the verdict. Mainly because many of us wanted to see if a rich black man could get a fair trial like rich white men get all the time. It’s been over twenty years and white folks are still mad. Simpson’s first wife was black. What if he was on trial for killing his black wife and her black friend? Do you think if he was found not guilty…whites would be upset? I highly doubt it. The truth is white people are upset because they believe that a black man got away with killing two white people.
What about all the lynchings of black men and women in the south? Some reports say there were over 4,000 murders of innocent black people from 1877-1950. And that’s a conservative estimate. I’m sure it’s much higher than that.
What about this horrific image(above) right here? That burned a black man alive! No trial needed at all. These monsters killed black men,women and children. If there was an accusation against a black man they would just beat him to death. Or just pummel him/her and then hang them! I want you to look at the pictures of these white men and women. Did they go to prison for murder? Was there a trial for murdering innocent black people? HELL NO!! These demonic bastards have killed millions of black people. And you want us to be concerned about OJ? Are you serious? Two white people don’t equate to millions of dead Africans. Black lives do NOT matter in a system of white supremacy. I’m not making any excuses for OJ Simpson. He’s a sellout coon that chases after white women. And he hasn’t done much for the black community. He lived his life wanting acceptance from whites. He got his wake up call after this trial. This issue is bigger than OJ Simpson. My ancestors were murdered in the Maafa. And we have gotten no reparations or even an apology from these sick bastards. So I really don’t give a damn if Simpson gets parole. I also think he was set up in that robbery attempt. This was white folks revenge for him getting off in 1995. White folks teach black people to forgive. But they want retribution and revenge when they feel someone did them wrong. Such damn hypocrites!
My last post was about who is black/African. But for part two I wanted to address the idea of race mixing. It has been an issue for hundreds of years. And for black people at this moment in time it’s a serious issue. Black people have been taught by this racist society that looking African is a bad thing. We are taught that being black means being ugly and inferior. So I ask the question…is being mixed race better? is being less black-looking better? In this racist culture many people would say it does. many black people that are full of self hatred would agree for sure. This video(above) is very disturbing for many reasons. This black women has obviously lost her damn mind. This braindead fool thinks a “super race” will be created by race mixing. She doesn’t believe in black power or black unity. She talks about the greatness of having melanin and seeing the greatness in yourself. Which is no a bad thing. But she’s talking only about the greatness of black women and how they will birth the new “super race”. She talking about giving the black womb to other races of men other than black men. Is this black greatness? is making mix raced babies the answer to racism? She sounds very intelligent and articulate. But I’m not falling for her nonsense. It sounds like just an excuse to hate black men and promote swirling. This woman is clearly delusional.
Then of course there is the issue of the “one drop rule”. This is the belief that a if a person is even partially black they must be considered a black/African person. The video above is very good. The narrator explains in a very analytical way how the one drop rule is destructive for black people. The definition give for the one drop rule is the following:
“The one-drop rule is a social and legal principle of racial classification that was historically prominent in the United States asserting that any person with even one ancestor of Saharan-African ancestry (“one drop” of black blood) is considered black (Negro in historical terms). This concept evolved over the course of the 19th century and became codified into law in the 20th century. It was associated with the principle of “invisible blackness” and is an example of hypodescent, the automatic assignment of children of a mixed union between different socioeconomic or ethnic groups to the group with the lower status.“
We can no longer fall for this propaganda. This is an obvious attack on melanin and black genetics. I would love to hear your thoughts.
Who is black? What is an African? This is a question I have been thinking about the last few years. Mainly because I have seen many debates on YouTube,Twitter and Facebook on who is a black person. It’s a hot topic that just wont seem to go away. I think the fact that people are debating it must mean many of us are still very confused. Why is that? Why is the black collective so confused about our own identity? The video(above) is really good. I know for some it might seem offensive. But you can tell that the speaker has really analyzed this issue. It’s a very touchy subject that most black people want to run away from.
This picture(above) shows different African women around the world. And of course there are people of African descent in America,Canada and the United Kingdom. Some people say many of us are mixed raced people. Some say we come in different shades because of years of race mixing. I will address race mixing in part two of this series. I personally don’t think race mixing is good for the black collective. It seems to cause more confusion more than anything else. But I guess the real question is how is a black person defined? What do Africans look like? How are Africans classified?
Fellow blogger C.C. Saunders stated this about blackness:
“Blackness is not limited to a skin color, but it is a state of being, an incomparable experience prompted by skin color, facial features, body type and hair texture. Omitting any identifying attribute allots a significant privilege absent from the lifetime of any black person possessing these attributes in entirety. However, melanin, while a chief component of blackness, does not encompass the totality of blackness. To distinguish between black and melanated is essential to understanding blackness as a collective identity.”
Blogger Amos Magazine said this about African people:
“Prior to the enslavement of West and Central Africans, Africans had certain traits and certain biological markers that made them a separate distinct group. Africans prior to 1500 and prior to the infamous fictitious Willie Lynch Letter had traits. Africans prior to the invasion of Arabs, Berbers and other West Asian people had skin color from brown to dark brown. This is an African trait. Africans had one common hair texture. Yes, Europeans upon arriving in what today is called Rwanda did notice that many Africans were a lighter shade of Brown from other Africans. But they were not yellow or near white. They were simply a pecan brown color as compared to the dark chocolate color of the other group. They used these slight differences in order to pit one group against on another. Today, DNA* test (* because there are holes in this science) show that the Hutu and Tutsi were actually the same people and that Hutu and Tutsi were actually social status. Now Negros will use to in order to say mulattoes are Africans. ***(3star concepts mean this is something to pay special attention to) ***The Tutsi who were divided into people of a lighter hue of brown were not products of mixed raced sexual relationships. My opponents will purposely leave this out in order to compare a mulatto vs. an authentic African or an authentic disasporic Africans.”
Blogger Bhekizitha breaks it down from a biological standpoint:
“An African / Black person is clearly visually a “close” descendant of people from East Africa, a region comprised of countries now known as Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda. Their color variation ranges from bronze, dark reddish-brown, dark or nut brown, dark-chocolate color plus “peppercorn” hair.”
This video(above) is very interesting. I first saw this video about four years ago. It’s the author Supreme Understanding. He has authored books such as How to Hustle and Win,Knowledge of Self and Black God. I’ve read a few of his books. I must admit that he knows quite a bit about black history and African culture. But he’s not African…he’s an Indian man. Years ago I remember seeing him in a picture with his black wife. In this video he says that being black is color,culture and consciousness. So he’s saying it’s not just physical traits that make you black. So if a Mexican,Indian or Asian man listens to rap music,studies African culture and has a black wife…..that makes him black? So it’s just about having a black consciousness? This can create a problem in the long run.
This picture(above) is from Supreme Understanding’s website. It’s titled What is Black? Looking at the pictures you can see all these dark skinned people from India,China,Pacific Islands,Malaysia and Australia. But are these people really Africans? Or do they have racial admixture? Were the original inhabitants of Australia or India really Africans? And if so,what does it mean for black people today? I think black people really like to be all inclusive. We like hearing that our ancestors were all over the world and created civilizations. That’s very true to a large extent. And to many of us we have a dream of creating some type of racial utopia. A world in which all people who have some melanin are brothers and sisters. But this is not reality. There will always be racial and cultural divisions. Just because you have dark skinned people in India and Malaysia doesn’t mean they can relate to a black person in America. The culture of a dark skinned Aborigine in Australia is totally different than a black person living in Jamaica. I always promote black unity,black love and black power on this blog. But you can’t have any type of unity if you can’t even decide who is black and who is not black. How can you have any type of cohesiveness when there are no clear cut definitions on your identity? And this is why the video by Supreme is problematic. He believes that all “people of color” are fighting against a white power structure. Therefore we are all in this fight together. But my thinking is that why can’t we fight a racist society and still maintain our own unique racial identity. Why does everyone with a little bit of color have to be considered black? By making everyone black…no one is really black. Our unique blackness gets lost in the process. Chinese people don’t have this problem. They don’t accept just anyone who might have their physical traits. I’ve seen Hispanics with a yellowish skin tone but they are not seen as Chinese. I’ve seen people that were biracial(Black/Chinese) with slanted eyes. But just because they had slanted eyes,Chinese people still don’t see them as one of them. By doing this it helps them stay homogeneous. They are able to maintain their racial identity. And this is something black/African people must keep in mind when want to distinguish ourselves from other groups. By letting anyone claim “blackness” it devalues those that are black in the process.
This dark melanin goddess is model Liliann Uwanyuze. This beautiful sista is an African model from Rwanda. It’s nice to see more African women getting some shine in the fashion world. Check out the pics and enjoy the video!
