Amwerican singer Elvis Presley is labeled the “King of Rock and Roll”. Even though black people invented rock and roll music. Little Richard and Chuck Berry were more talented. But that’s another subject. There’s been a lot of talk about sexual predators during this witch hunt…Oops… I mean MeToo movement. But it seems that black men like Bill Cosby,Michael Jackson and R Kelly are getting the most press. They went and found women from thirty years ago to testify against legendary comedian Bill Cosby. Then sent the old man to jail. Then Twitter started a hashtag called MuteRKelly. There’s a new documentary called Leaving Neverland about Michael Jackson. The documentary interviews two white men who say Jackson molested them. Jackson has been dead ten years and they come out with this now? Why?? He’s not here to defend himself. Sounds like character assassination to me. Or a money grab. The reality is that Hollywood is full of rapists and pedophiles. And black people are corrupt in that business as well. But black people don’t control the mainstream media. So when they make a deal with these demons for fortune and fame..the devil will collect! If you do something they don’t like they can destroy you. They can publicly destroy your image through television. They can even frame you and send you to prison.
There are many white men in Hollywood and the music industry who have had sex with children. None of them are saints. But the media covers up for them. Where is the documentary on Woody Allen? What about Harvey Weinstein? That’s Oprah Winfrey’s buddy. I see Oprah had no problem doing the documentary about Michael Jackson. But she’s silent on Harvey. Jackson had his issues. I believe he had self hate issues and worshipped whites too much. But at least before his death he spoke out on the wicked people in the music industry. Oprah has shown her true colors. She is nothing but a Hollywood mammy. She and her lesbian lover Gayle King are tools for the white devils in Hollywood. They both make me SICK!!!
But why does Elvis get a pass? He met his future wife Priscilla in 1959. She was only fourteen at the time. They had a romance until they got married in 1967 when she was twenty-two years old. So let’s do the math here. From the time she was fourteen and until they got married…did they have sex??? You know damn well they did! So what’s the difference between him and R. Kelly? Didn’t Kelly marry Aaliyah when she was really sixteen? So where’s the hashtag #MuteElvisPresley? Jackson,Cosby and Kelly are not saints. They are imperfect people and have their flaws. But in a so-called justice system everyone should be treated the same. But that’s not the reality we live in. We live in a society controlled by Europeans Jews. They own the mainstream media and control Hollywood and the music industry. So don’t wait up for Oprah to make that Leaving Graceland documentary. You might be waiting for a very long time.
LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF OPRAH WINFREY? HAS SHE SOLD OUT?
I anticipate that this post will be unpopular. I acknowledge the contention that my assertions will certainly prompt and welcome the scathing comments in the section below. With that being said, I still very must feel that my perspective is worthy of articulation and exposure to those that care to listen.
Singer and R&B legend R.Kelly made headlines this week for allegedly assembling a sex cult consisting of underaged girls. These allegations bear a disturbing connection to R. Kelly’s previous trouble with the law, portraying Kelly as a an OJ-like figure–a haughty recidivist who finagled through the loopholes of the American legal system.
I feel obliged to state that I have no respect for R. Kelly as a man. I do however, respect his talent. I perceive the ‘Pied Piper’ as an enslaved black who used America’s need to hyper sexualize the black man as a means to foment his career. While Kelly defiantly made family friendly songs like “Step in The Name of Love” and inspirational songs like “I Believe I Can Fly” and “The World’s Greatest” most of Kelly’s hits are sexualized slow jams to which I’m sure proved background music to the conception of many post millennials. His sexualized image fueled a career spanning over two decades with a plethora of adoring black female fans.
These fans remained loyal to Kelly even after a video surfaced of the singer issuing a golden shower to a then-fifteen year old girl. The charges were eventually dropped and buried in the past of a musician who was still able to maintain his mogul stature despite dramatic changes in the music industry.
While my argument is not to pardon R. Kelly from blame, it is that he is not the primary cause of the hyper-sexualized black female body that faces violation without consequence. R. Kelly was relieved of any legal responsibility in previous allegations of sexually violating a black female teen simply because the black female body bears no significance to the Western world outside of monetary gain. Consider how quickly the western world kills and incarcerates the black body. The reason why Kelly was not susceptible to these consequences is not because of his riches, but because his “crimes” served an integral purpose in maintaining white supremacy. Moreover, the world was and is more interested in portraying Kelly and his victim as sexual beasts than to upholding the integrity of those they do not see as a human let alone bearing the presumed innocence of femininity or childhood.
To the western gaze, the hyper sexuality of the young black female body violently seduces Kelly. To this same gaze, Kelly is a sexualized being unable to resist the callings of his bestial urges. Together, these caricatured images of black sexuality function assemble the historical narrative of blacks as primitive and underdeveloped beings worthy of the death and incarceration that befalls them.
Kelly, a melanated individual who believes his conventional success consummates his transition to whiteness, feels as entitled to young bodies as the white man did and does to young black females. Kelly, is a symbol of what happens when a morally impoverished black youth offsets a journey to acquire physical wealth and not a collective consciousness. As members of an oppressed collective, it is essential that we proceed with consciousness. To proceed without it, is to inevitably mirror our oppressors in thought and action.
There is also a large possibility that this ordeal is entirely fictional, and yet another means to lynch a black man by the rope of hyper sexuality. But the verity of these accusations does little to supersede its societal function. The scenario depicts how the black man and women are commonly pitted against one another and how the black male is villanized for implementing what he was nurtured to idolize—white male ideology.
The teachings of white supremacy are second nature to anyone not possessing a conscious gaze. I read The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison, a few years back and was mortified at what Pecola’s father does to her on the kitchen floor. I resented Morrison for years, holding her in contempt for depicting the black man as indifferently robbing his child of her innocence.
It took me several strides into consciousness to realize that the father was a man systemized and nurtured to become an animal, a subjugate human who performs the dirty work of his master in his oppressed state. This is not an excuse, as his actions are detestable and hard to read, yet even more difficult to process as a factual fate rendered to so many blacks throughout the diaspora silent in the shame of their systemic violation.
Kelly symbolically stands in the same image of this fictional black man who encompasses the factual narrative of so many other black males castrated by earthly demons who program the black body to inflict white evil onto their own people.
Kelly’s actions function to lure black women from blackness into the arms of feminism–yet example of society’s dedication to turning racist issues into sexist issues to further the cyclical disenfranchisement of blacks by hurling our struggle into oblivion. A second offense by a black praised for his prodigious talent, serves another blow to our collective identity alongside similar allegations afforded to other black greats like the late Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, Kobe Bryant, amongst others. These allegations function to fuel white esteem and denigrate black collective worth in staining the black psyche with portraits of themselves that seemingly lack a moral compass.
So, to those quick to compartmentalize a black man as a sexual villain— I would like to redirect your attention to the words of the late and great Malcolm X:
“If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”
To what contempt will you hold a system that upholds the systemic soiling of black female bodies?
To reiterate I am in no way excusing Kelly, but evoking a sense of nationalism to assert that we as a collective have been wronged by a system that lures us to incessantly blame ourselves but seldom confront the true villain and sole benefactor of global racism.
In closing, the power of blackness lies largely in realizing if and when we are being played. So while we may not be playing chess, our systemized state as blacks bears a close resemblance to a king being used to seize the most powerful piece of the game–his queen.

There has been much fanfare about the new August cover of Vanity Fair. It features tennis great Serena Williams. The black woman’s body is a beautiful sight to behold. And a pregnant woman is a glorious representation of new life. So when I saw the pregnant Williams I first thought it was beautiful. Then I had to remind myself that she was carrying a white man’s seed. But Williams is not alone in doing this. It seems many black athletes,singers,politicians and actors love to dilute their black genetics. Here’s a short list of black and (some biracial) people who over the years have continued to whiten their bloodline…
Ira Aldridge, Maya Angelou, Kofi Annan, Pearl Bailey, Amiri Baraka, Charles Barkley, Harry Belafonte, Julian Bond, Ed Bradley, Carol Mosely Braun, Lonnie Bristow, Avery Brooks, Georg Sanford Brown, Clarence Williams III, Johnetta Cole, Ward Connerly, Sammy Davis Jr., Father Divine, Frederick Douglass, Marian Wright Edelman, Olaudah Equiano (aka Gustavus Vasa), Franz Fanon, Roberta Flack, Henry Louis Gates, Clarence Gilyard, Cuba Gooding Jr., Berry Gordy, Dorien Harewood, Ken Hamblin, Calvin Hernton, Chester Himes, Gregory Hines, Michael Jackson, LaToya Jackson, Reggie Jackson, C.L.R.

Why are we so desperate for white acceptance? Do we not value our African phenotype? Why do we want to dilute our black genetics? We are a beautiful people. We are beautiful with our full lips,dark skin and African textured hair. We don’t have to be mixed to be considered attractive. We are taught to hate our own reflection. Over hundreds of years of imperial indoctrination,slavery and colonization we have lost knowledge of self. They gave us European mythology full of false white gods and black demons. This is evident by the fact that our most intelligent,successful and athletic even want to reproduce with their oppressor. Many of these athletes and entertainers don’t see the beauty in themselves. They can only see beauty in their biracial offspring. Something that looks less black. Something less hue-man. They feel by accepting the white penis or white vagina will exclude them from black pain. They think by kissing white lips they wont be spat upon by white racism. But this is delusional. This shows how deep rooted the self hatred can be. Africans are the oldest people on the planet. The black man is the Original man. The black woman is the Original woman and the standard of beauty. All these other races are subspecies. European culture is anti-African by it’s very definition. But the reality is we don’t need their acceptance or consent for anything. All we have to do is accept and love ourselves. And once we do that we’ll be taking the first steps in reclaiming power and control over our own destinies.
The woman on the current cover of Rolling Stone is Paris Jackson. She is the daughter of the late music icon Michael Jackson. In the cover story Paris says that she knows for sure her father was killed. That may or may not be true but that’s a story for another time. This post is about the fact that Paris says in the interview that she considers herself a black woman. Of course social media went crazy over this story. In the interview she says:
“He is my father. He will always be my father,” she said. “He never wasn’t, and he never will not be. People that knew him really … say they see him in me, that it’s almost scary.”
She even expounded a bit more, saying that because of the “Smooth Criminal” singer’s instilling words, she considers herself a Black woman.
“I consider myself Black. [Dad] would look me in the eyes and he’d point his finger at me and he’d be like, ‘You’re Black. Be proud of your roots,'” she said. “And I’d be like, ‘OK, he’s my dad. Why would he lie to me?’ So I just believe what he told me. ‘Cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.”
Despite what her father told her, she said the outside world still sees her as white: “Most people that don’t know me call me white,” she said. “I’ve got light skin and, especially since I’ve had my hair blond, I look like I was born in Finland or something.”
Let me be clear,Paris is NOT a black woman. Anyone with eyesight can see that. I don’t give a damn what her father told her. She looks purely European to me. From a biological standpoint,she is more European than anything else. I personally believe that Paris and her two siblings are not biologically related to Michael Jackson. I think Michael used the sperm from a white man to impregnate Debbie Rowe because he didn’t want his children to look even half black. I went to school with plenty biracial kids and most don’t look like this woman. Let’s be honest here,Michael Jackson was a very gifted singer/dancer. I can’t take that away from him. But he had serious self-hate issues. I think Jackson hated himself so much he didn’t want to see a reflection of his blackness. I still can’t believe he married that ugly white woman Debbie Rowe. That woman is hideous! But that shows his self hatred(anti-blackness) was really deep. I saw black people on YouTube arguing in defense of Paris saying she was at least “culturally black”. I have heard this term many times before. I knew a white girl in high school that was adopted by a black couple. She listen to rap music and dressed in hip hop clothing. She told me she liked soul food,dated only black boys and spoke in a certain “black vernacular”. So many would say she is culturally black. So some may put Paris Jackson in that category. But Paris and the white girl I knew in high school are still not black women.
Some like to say that being black is a mindset. But I disagree. You either have African genes are you do not. You have melanin or you don’t. It’s that simple. This type of mentality diminishes the black experience and insults our ancestors. We are blessed to have African DNA in us. And we have to get away from worshipping whiteness and being ashamed of blackness. This is the mental illness many of us suffer from. Many of us can’t appreciate our blackness unless it’s close to whiteness. That’s why some us have interracial sex so we can have mixed babies. And then say “Isn’t this a beautiful black child?” This is why you have black fools saying “Paris should be allowed to call herself black.” This is an insult to authentic black people. It’s an insult to dark brown,dark skinned blacks with African textured hair. Paris has none of the physical traits of a black person. If she does have any African genes she must be about 0.000001 % black.
This picture(above) is Paris with her brothers Michael Jackson Jr and Prince. They are pictured with their grandmother Katherine Jackson. These children may have been raised around black people but that doesn’t make them black people. And we as black people have to stop giving everyone a pass. We must stop making blackness all inclusive. It makes us look stupid. They are making a mockery of our beautiful blackness. It’s because many of us don’t have the courage to create a definition of what is an African person. By allowing people like Paris to be considered is black is an insult to our intelligence. Paris or anyone that looks like her is not black. Michael Jackson told her to “be proud of your roots”. He must’ve meant her European roots.
