Halos and Horns- Paul Ifayomi Grant

Angel1...jpg
I have been thinking about how to conceptualise an idea that I think most of you will be aware of, either consciously or subconsciously, but which I sense that a large proportion of the younger generations have not grasped. Now, I should make it clear that I think this lack of awareness is not the fault of the under 30s but is attributable to my generation’s failure to adequately teach them about how racism works, as well as the very skilled way in which Europeans continuously adapt and refine the way they express and operationalise the ideology of white supremacy.

I have previously written about why the idea of ‘Black Firsts’ seems to be so important to Afrikan people and long ago came to conclusion that it is because of the heartfelt, deepseated, aching desire of so many Afrikans to be/feel accepted by Europeans as their ‘equals’. The underlying thinking is that each ‘Black First’ proves to Europeans that we are capable of performing some task; or performing in some arena of life, as competently as Europeans and hence they should abandon their ideology of racial superiority. Of course this theory has been tested to destruction and proven to be utterly without merit, as the ultimate Black First, the election (twice) of Barack Obama proved.

The reason that Black Firsts don’t change they way Afrikans are viewed, no matter how talented the ‘Firstee’ is; or how conspicous their achievement, is because it is an idea that runs completely counter to the fundamental nature of racism.  Racism is an irrational philosophy/ideology/religion, hence its operation is not impacted by evidence or rational arguments. Paradoxically, as well as being irrational racism is also  rational in the sense that it is instrumental, which is to say that it helps Europeans to achieve their primary group goal; which is to exercise power and domination over groups they classify as nonwhite.  Put these two things together and you can understand why Black Firsts never stood a chance as a tactic or strategy to defeat racism.

Angel2...
The above image, from an infamous Benetton advert, almost perfectly depicts the idea I am seeking to convey.
The easiest way to conceptualise halos and horns is to understand that viewed through the lens of the religion/philosophy/ideology called white supremacy; every Afrikan child is metaphorically born with a pair of horns and every European child is born with a halo above their head. In other words all Afrikans are born guilty until proven innocent and all Europeans are born innocent until proven guilty. The practical ramifications of this are that an Afrikan can make one slip in an otherwise blameless life and be condemned to unforgiveable, irredeemable guilt, whereas as European can live a life of exploitative abuse, and except in the most extreme cases, always have the possibility of redemption.

What this means is that the positive things you do can only help yourself whilst the negative things you do will damage other Afrikans. That is to say that your positive deeds and achievements are never generalised to the wider group by Europeans – except in areas of stereotypical Afrikan achievement such as sport and music – however your negative deeds or failures can be; and are, attributed to being part of a group that is designated as inferior.

I will illustrate the above with a real life story. I have changed some of the details to protect people’s identities.
Once upon a time there was an intelligent young Afrikan woman named Adeola who wanted to be a solicitor. She grew up in humble financial circumstances and went to a very poor school, however she overcame these barriers as well as the ubiquitous racism and graduated well from University. She then had the task of securing a contract with a firm of solicitors to undertake her articles and after a relatively short period she was successful in this task. As was her wont she worked hard and qualified as a solicitor. She had been made aware by her boss that she was the first Afrikan trainee solicitor that the firm had ever recruited and thus felt a bit of added pressure in the sense that she did not want to ‘let the side down’. Anyway her boss was very pleased with her performance and two years after she was recruited, and just as she was qualifying, the firm recruited Femi, another hard working young Afrikan. Adeola gave Femi the ‘don’t let the side down’ pep talk and sure enough Femi prospered and qualified without any hiccups. Adeola’s line manager was pleased with both her and Femi and the following year recruited Tunde, who was not quite so focused and methodical as his predecessors. Tunde was not terrible but he was definitely not good and one day, after he had made a bit of a cock up, Adeola’s line manager turned to her in exasperation and said “If I had recruited Tunde first I would never have recruited another black trainee solicitor”. She thought it was a compliment to Adeola, however Adeola had an epiphany; and started to understand the subtleties of how racism works. She saw that whilst the halo is not transferable the horns definitely are!

The above story took place some years ago and of course in 2017 no white manager would be as honest as the manager in the above scenario. However just because someone does not say something does not mean they are not thinking it or acting upon it.

The moral of this story; and this article, is that our achievements should be motivated by the desire to help ourselves, our families and our community. Trying to get Europeans, as  a collective, to respect our humanity, intelligence etc. is a waste of time and psychological energy. The first respect is self-respect as an Afrikan and the ironic thing is that even those people who don’t like you will respect you if you have commitment and integrity. Remember, people can like you without respecting you whilst they can respect you without liking you and the latter is always preferable to the former, although in an ideal world most of us would choose to be both liked and respected. These are the things we need to teach our young people to prepare them for an anti-Afrikan world.

Criminals for fighting back....

N*ggerizing the Contemporary Black Body,Bill Maher uses the N word

Bill Maher1...

It happened for the first time when I was seventeen.

I was interning for a local politician in Fresh Meadows, Queens. The environment was a predominately white office perched in an affluent neighborhood. My parents were over-protective and would not let me go onto the street and hand out literature, so most of my time was spent handling office duties—and as I would learn, engaging office politics.

One day while inserting data, a young white man rehashed an event that happened at Howard Beach. Rather than give an overview of the event, he decided to recite a racially charged graffiti act verbatim. The epithet read “f*ck all you n*ggers.” After reciting these words, he looked straight into my face, seemingly searching for something that I refused to acknowledge by returning his piercing gaze.

A similar event would occur years later in an interaction with a racial psychopath I mistook for a friend. Similar to my first experience, my pseudo friend expressed outrage in the use of a racial epithet, yet took it upon herself to repeat her uncle’s use of the word n*gger.  Like the previous incident, she too stared in my face as she uttered the term, a gaze I saw in my peripheral because I had refused her longing gaze. This same friend would go on to show me her white boyfriend dressed in blackface for Halloween. We have since lost touch, her face dissipated into a grudging appreciation for presenting a necessary evil to awaken my consciousness.

These particular incidents illustrate the antiracist efforts implemented by whites uncomfortable with black presence, working to transfer their discomfort onto the oppressed black body. This transfer is never painless. Rather it reflects the evil deemed necessary to maintain a fictive whiteness. The black body has historically been used a canvass for western anxiety, making the n word a common painting drawn on the black body to appease the demands of a white supremacist hierarchy.

Despite having the opposite effect, these incidents overtly functioned to distance the individual white body from their racist collective– an impossible, and disingenuous feat given the racial climate that defines America. It is this racial climate that predisposes any antiracist effort to inevitably help not hinder white supremacy.

Flash forward to this past semester. The setting is a writing course at a private university in New York City. To introduce a unit on critical queries I play Jadakiss’s “Why?” I am sure to play the clean version because as a black female on a journey to conscious, I have no place for expletives in my life let alone my classroom. Yet despite my efforts, when prompted to respond to a question in the song, a white female student stated “Why N*ggas can’t get no job?” despite the version played in class that stated “Why brothers can’t get no job?”

To which I responded “what did you say?”
She then proceeded to repeat the sentence and epithet. Every student in the class looked down. But, the worst is yet to come. When confronted about her word use she became combative and argumentative. This is the issue with the n word.

Is it an issue that white people use the n word? Yes. But this is not racism. It seems an essential component of oppression to preoccupy the oppressed with branches of racism and not the roots. Take for example the often unpleasant white and foreign businessmen that dominate black communities throughout America. Is it a problem that they are often unpleasant? Yes. Is this racist? No.

It is racist that the white and non-black foreigner monopolizes black economy—taking our money out of our communities. It is racist that the American system is designed to prevent black business ownership. Racism is the systemic action and language seen in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. It is the societal hierarchy white people observe in every aspect of western culture. Using the n word is yet another means for white people to assume their acquired hierarchy over black bodies. This student used the n word in the classroom of a black female instructor and fought for the right to use a racially offensive term–that’s racism. Bill Maher illustrated a similar dynamic in his use of the n-word Friday evening.

Bill Maher welcomed guest Senator Ben Sasse on his HBO show “Real Time” in which the pair joked about the fields of Nebraska. When invited to “work the fields” by Sasse, Maher responded “I’m a house n*gger” to a reserved laughter from his audience, to which he expressed his gratitude.

Was Maher wrong for using the n word? Yes. But this was far from the first racist comment Maher has made and won’t be the last. It seems his sexual fetish for black Women serves as a means to validate his racial insensitivity to those foolish enough to believe that having sex with blacks makes forgives their racist tendencies. The very house slaves that he references were both products and victims of the white slave masters, and it is this ignored context that composes the core issue here.

The historical trajectory of black bodies in this country is not funny. The means for initial western wealth, who received cyclical disenfranchisement in exchange for centuries of labor, is hardly a laughing matter, at least for those robbed. In using the n word, the white person induces a collective amnesia that when retrieved portrays the retriever as “living in the past” or “playing the race card.”

Blacks have yet to receive reparations or even inclusion into canonical history for providing the greatest sacrifice for this country, so it seems a fractional effort for the western world to retire an epithet used to verbally subjugate the black body.

So why can’t the word be laid to rest?

The answer is simple, it bears too much power.

Many will say that “n*gger” is “just a word” and blacks put “too much emphasis” on this word. But it was never blacks who put too much emphasis on a term foreign to their indigenous tongue. This was never our word, rather the word is conjured from white creation solely to conceptualize black denigration. Yes, it’s an issue that blacks use the word. But until the black collective maintains power in economics, media, employment and housing , they lack the ability to be racist. Furthermore, it is not the black collective who have issues getting over themselves, it is the white collective that expresses difficulty “getting over” their fictive placement on a stolen land.

The abducted African remains the foundation for western wealth, and their significance much like the emaciated and overworked bodies have dissolved into the stolen American soil. Yet instead of sprouting seeds of progress, this soil breeds a continued oppression of black bodies. This oppression is perhaps most evident in the western words implication that colloquial or comedic use of the term “n*gger” symbolizes racial progress.

Thus, in waiting for the term’s retirement, the black collective anticipates the impossible–for the white world to take a small step to relinquish their systemic power. The term was implemented as a means to maintain a position above the black body, and whites continue to use the term publicly for the same reasons. Maher, could have easily, and I’m sure he and the majority of whites do, used the n word off camera. The decision to do so publicly was because he could. Similarly, in my provided examples, each white individual used this racial epithet in a public place, drunk off a systemic white power that conceives every public space as subject to white domination.

The sadistic white mind— historically inebriated off power—assumes the height of racial psychopathy in staring into the black collective and calling them what every stolen opportunity, every stolen dollar, and every drowned, whipped, lynched, burned and raped ancestor symbolizes in past and present America.

Interestingly, this gaze into the black eye, is a central component of my two earlier examples. Notably, both acts seemed centered on not just saying the word to a black person, but staring them in the eye as they did so. I align said behavior with the traditional racial psychopath who looked blacks in the eye as they raped them, who looked as black flesh was chewed by dogs, who watched the life leave a black body during public lynchings. Namely, my mind thinks of the late Claude Neal and the white eyes that watched his flesh be torn from his body and jammed down his throat in a torture murder that lasted several hours. Let us not forget the white gazes that purchased the mutilated portraits of black bodies, and those who purchased black limbs ripped from their bodies in mob attacks.

White desire to induce and see pain illustrates white assemblage as contingent on black dismemberment—substantiating the white collective as what Dr. Bobby Wright labeled a racial psychopath who performs evil with no conscious.

Maher does a similar act in staring down the contemporary pain of the black collective, and mocking the very institution that proved a platform for his lucrative whiteness and conventional success. His ability to stare into the collective gaze of the black collective and use a term that  jests the narrative of the abducted African violates the black body in the same manner as a lynching or rape.

Using the n-word is a socially accepted means to verbally assault the black body. The word does not function with the simplicity of an article, or the certainty of a noun. For the “n*gger” is no person, place or thing, it is an action. In a 2007 essay for The Atlantic entitle N*ggerization, Cornel West defines “n*ggerization” as the following:

N*ggerization is neither simply the dishonoring and devaluing of black people nor solely the economic exploitation and political disenfranchisement of them. It is also the wholesale attempt to impede democratization—to turn potential citizens into intimidated, fearful, and helpless subjects.

To use the word “nIgger” is an attempt to “n*ggerize,” to subject the black body to a verbal bludgeoning that ties the contemporary black body to a tree beside the ghosts of their ancestors, bare-backed and anticipating the physical wrath of white supremacy designed to force the black mind to mentally acquiesce to inferiority.

Therefore, it goes without saying that Maher’s apology is as insufficient as it is insincere. It also goes without saying that Maher should lose his job. Although it is doubtful that he was every deserving of such visibility anyhow.  Nevertheless, whether fired or not, Maher’s fate will not stop racism. Who knows, Maher may have a clause in his contract that promises a huge payout if fired. He is also at the end of his career, and in addition to being a white man in America, it is guaranteed that Maher will not suffer, because earth is not hell for whites. Thus, it is not his job that the conscious community desires Maher to lose, it is his privilege.

Will the heat of hell change the setting? No, just as firing Maher will not end black suffering. If Maher does get fired the firing will function to imply that the world has “come a long way,” despite occurring in a world where Bill O’Reilly can get fired for “sexual misconduct” but cops are not fired for murdering black men, women or children.

It will also serve as the foregrounds for firing blacks who saying things like “white people,” “pass the crackers” or even “white privilege.” As an oppressed group, we must be sure not to misconstrue what appears to be an opportunity for progress for what it is—an opportunity. Nothing in America has been said or done for the sole purpose of helping blacks, and America proceeds cyclically not linear.

Welfare, affirmative action, diversity initiatives, financial aid, etc all function to aid whites, despite seeming to provide opportunities to the disenfranchised. Moreover, in accordance with the historical trajectory of a country established on the spilled blood of those labeled “other,” the white world will find a way to turn n-word, a source of collective black pain, into a gain for whites.

Barack & Biracial Men- Black Genetics(Part 3 of 4)

Barack Obama...

I remember when I saw this cover(above) of Ebony magazine back in 2008.  It was when Barack Obama was running for President.  I remember hearing people say Obama looked so cool in his sunglasses. And I noticed that over the past eight years that there were more biracial men in the media.  There has always  been biracial men in the spotlight. But there seems to be more right now. I have also seen many more biracial women in the media over the last few years.  I will cover biracial women in part three. That is a an even bigger issue in my opinion.  But I did want to cover some of the biracial men that seemed to be getting a lot more press in recent years.  And what does it mean for black men?  Are they the new and improved black men? Or do they represent a “new white man’? I think Obama helped to bring interracial unions and biracial people more acceptance in American culture.  And worldwide for that matter.  I have seen more biracial men in sports,television and films.

Lenny Kravitz....

Back in the early 90’s Lenny Kravitz was one of the biggest rock stars.  His mother is black,father is Jewish.

Vin Diesel....

Actor Vin Diesel is biracial as well. Although he mostly plays racially ambiguous roles. He never really plays a “black” man though.

Shemar Moore....

Actor Shemar Moore has become a sex symbol among many black women. The picture(above) is of him and his white mother. He first gained fame on the soap opera The Young and The Restless. I remember ten years ago he was seen at a gay beach in Hawaii.  I’ll let you draw your own conclusions about his sexuality.

Boris Kodjoe...

This is biracial actor Boris Kodjoe.  His mother is a German white woman. I know many black women who have told me is their ideal man.  Although this is not a good picture. It leaves him looking very “suspect”.

The Rock....

Actor Dwayne Johnson has become a huge star over the last eight years.  He first became famous as a WWE wrestler known as The Rock.  And has become a sex symbol in his transition from wrestler to actor.  Although he is not a mulatto since he has a black father and Samoan mother. Much like actor Vin Diesel he plays racially ambiguous roles.  And is rarely paired with black women in films. But he still remains popular among many black women.

Jesse Willaims.....

Biracial actor Jesse Williams caused quite a stir last year at the BET Awards. The Grey’s Anatomy star gave a passionate speech about police brutality last year.  And many black people quickly gave the mixed race man his “black card”.

Trevor Noah....

The picture(above) is of Trevor Noah.  The comedian/actor is the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central.  he is pictured with his girlfriend,model Jordyn Taylor.  She is racially mixed  so I guess the paring his fitting.  Noah is a media darling because of his left-leaning liberal views. Although I don’t find him that funny.

Jussie Smollett...

This is actor Jussie Smollett. Most people know him from the hit drama Empire.   He plays a homosexual on the show.  Which is fitting since he’s a homosexual in real life as well. He’s pictured her with his sister actress Jurnee.  They have a black mother and white father.  This picture is quite interesting.  What’s with the “black power” fist? What message are they sending?  Is that you can be conscious,biracial,pro-black and gay all at the same time?  Good lord….what world am I living in?  God help us.

Drake....

Of course we can’t discuss biracial people without mentioning Canadian rapper Drake.  Drake has become one of rap music’s biggest stars in the last eight years or so. He started as a child actor and late did underground mixtapes as a rapper. His mother(pictured above) is Jewish and his father is black.  I can’t help but to think that having those Jewish connections helped him in the industry. Also according to Halakha(Jewish law) a Jew must be born to a Jewish mother. Accepting the principles and practices of  Judaism doesn’t make a person a Jew. So even with a black father technically…. Drake is a Jew.

J Cole....

Rapper J. Cole(with mother) has seen his popularity rise in recent years.  He has gotten praise from many rap fans because of his socially conscious lyrics.

Miguel...

The picture(above) is of r&b/pop singer Miguel and his Mexican father. Miguel became popular when his debut cd came out in 2010.  His music style is a mix of funk,r&b and elements of rock. Many music critics have compared him to the late pop icon Prince.

Derek Jeter.....

Retired baseball player Derek Jeter was one of the most well know athletes while playing for the New York Yankees.  Here is Jeter pictured with his parents and sister Sharlee.

TONY PARKER OF THE SAN ANTONIO SPURS

NBA veteran Tony Parker has played for the San Antonio Spurs for over fifteen years.  And he has won four NBA championships. He has a black father and white mother. He has been one of the most well known biracial athletes over the last ten years.

San Francisco 49ers 2011 Headshots

Of course what list would be complete with biracial NFL star Colin Kaepernick.  I recently heard that he will now stand for the pledge of allegiance. Why the change of heart? I guess all the hype is over now.  It helped to cause some more racial tension and get people talking.  But I guess that time has passed…so it’s back to football! That is if any team picks him up.

Lewis Hamilton...

This is racecar driver Lewis Hamilton pictured with his white mother.  He was born and raised in the United Kingdom.  His first racecar win was the Canadian Grand prix in 2007.  His popularity has really grown over the last ten years.

 

Joakim Noah.....

Chicago Bulls basketball player Joakim Noah has a white mother and black father.  He’s very popular with the Chicago fans.  This pic(above) he is with his mother and sister Yelena.

Aaron Gordon...Zach Lavine...

This picture(above) is of NBA players Aaron Gordon and Zach Lavine. Gordon plays for the Orlando Magic and Lavine plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves.  Last year during the 2016 NBA All Star weekend these two were the finalists in the Slam Dunk contest.  It was close but Lavine ending up winning the contest.  I just thought it was interesting that the last two finalists were both biracial men.  I thought it was odd. Are they going to be the face of the NBA?  Much like Drake is the face of rap music?  Or how Obama was the face of the nation.  Hmmmm…something to think about.

Matt Barnes...

NBA star Matt Barnes(with mother) has always been a headache for the NBA. He has a really bad temper and needs to seek anger management. He has played for the LA Clippers,New York Knicks,Orlando Magic,LA Lakers and Golden State Warriors. He gets moved around a lot because of his temper tantrums and bad attitude.

Lavar Ball...

The black man in the pic(above) is Lavar Ball.  Ball is a retired football player. He was a practice squad member for the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers. He and his white wife Tina have three sons,Lonzo,LiAngelo and LaMelo.  They have become a huge media sensation in the basketball world. They have all appeared on ESPN.  They all played for Chino Hills high school.  The oldest son Lonzo played one year at UCLA.  He is already said he is entering the NBA draft. He has groomed his mulatto sons from birth to be basketball players.

Prescott1.....

NFL rookie Dak Prescott(with mother) has made quite an impression lately.  The Dallas Cowboys quarterback seems to be fitting in well as the new face of the team. I know there are a lot racist rednecks in Dallas.  I know because I’ve been to Texas before. But I’m sure they’ll accept him with open arms.  Just as long as their biracial quarterback is winning games for them.

Blake Griffin...

NBA star Blake Griffin(with father and mother) has been a big asset for the Los Angeles Clippers. He has been playing with the Clippers since 2009.  His skills have improved over the last few years. I remember when he was in the Slam Dunk contest back in 2011. I saw some video of the dunk contest on YouTube.  There were some white guys making comments on the video.  Some were saying that Griffin should be considered a white man.  I guess they wanted to see a non-black person win so bad they were willing to accept a biracial man as white.  But this got me thinking.  Do they want biracial men to be the “new blacks”?  Do they want to replace African men with biracial men? Is it easier for whites to accept those that have a white parent? After all,biracials are in closer proximity to whiteness than someone with two black parents.  I personally believe this is psychological warfare. And many of us don’t understand this tactic very much.  There are many ways to attack a person.  It doesn’t always have to be physical.   Attacking a persons  mind can be just as effective. Psychological warfare is a form of propaganda or a threat.  It’s a psychological technique to mislead,demoralize,intimidate or influence the thinking or the behavior of an enemy.  This is what is being done to black people. This is all being done on purpose.  The white/jewish controlled media is purposely putting more biracial men to the forefront.   They are doing this to confuse the minds of black people. This all goes against the collective best interest of black people.  It also promotes the idea that interracial sex is a good thing.  They are giving us the false belief that being half-black is better than having two black parents.  This is just another way to promote black inferiority and degrade black genetics.  This all helps to reinforce the idea that being dark skinned and having African features is ugly and unwanted.

Shaun King....

We better have a clear definition on who is black and who is NOT.  Otherwise we’ll keep getting melanin recessive imposters like Shaun King(pic above).  This white activist is going around telling people he’s a black man when he has already been exposed as a white man by his white mother and father. This is insulting to all black people.  But this is what happens when you let everyone claim blackness.  We got to put an end to this.  This has really gotten out of hand. So what do you think?  Am I on to something?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

The Purge films aren’t Fiction!

The Purge....

Racist Hollywood always has a way of telling you the truth through their films.  They want you to think it’s all fiction..when many times it is TRUTH.

Organ Harvesting: It’s a Global problem!

Since the abduction of black girls recently  in Washington DC,people have asked me what happened to them.  A subject that keeps coming up is organ harvesting. I think this is serious problem for black people.  I think there are very powerful people kidnapping black children and adults for their organs. This is a very scary issue that some people don’t want to touch on.  Even in the horror film Get Out is shows black people being abducted and being used for their organs.  Not too many realize that Hollywood was showing what they already do.  Are black people paying attention? I hope so. Art imitates life right? And many people aren’t aware that this is a global problem.  It is really big on the black market.  It’s not only big in America but also India,China and Jamaica.  The video(above) is a Jamaican doctor.  He explains how much of a problem it is in Jamaica. Here’s an article from the Kulture Kritic about organ harvesting:

In a 2006 article, USA today estimated that more than 16,800 families had been represented in lawsuits that claimed that their loved ones’ body parts had been stolen for profit over the course of the previous 19 years. The estimate was based on data from federal and local investigators, lawsuits and public organizations such as medical universities.

David Matas

The lucrative business of illegally harvesting and selling organs and body parts without consent does not appear to have slowed down since then. The World Health Organization estimates that as many as 7,000 kidneys are illegally obtained by traffickers every year. Other organs such as hearts, lungs and livers and human tissue such as bones, tendons and other body parts are illegally harvested all over the world for transplant, research and education.

The illegal harvesting of organs and tissue from Black men, woman, and children who are kidnapped and murdered is not covered widely in the mainstream media and is many times written off has more of a conspiracy theory than fact. However, there are several cases that prove that illegal organ harvesting from Black people is happening, not just in other countries, but right here in the United States.

Organ harvesting....

Get Out....png

In 2008, former dentist Michael Mastromarino was indicted for stealing more than 1,000 bodies in order to sell body parts and tissue. Michael Brown of Murrieta, California kept bodies that he was supposed to have cremated and sold them for more than $400,000. These men and others who participate in the illegal harvesting and trade of body tissue leave many families without answers about what happened to their family members organs and/or body parts.

 

The illegal harvesting of organs from Black people seems to be more sinister due to the fact that organs must be harvested not long after death for them to be viable for transplant. This leads to cases where families have trouble finding answers about the mysterious circumstances their family members died under.

One such case is that of 14-year-old Jason Smith in Eros, Louisiana whose death was ruled an accidental drowning despite the fact that his organs were missing when his body was found. A case that received more attention but did not provide the family with any more answers is that of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson whose death was initially ruled to have been the result of accidental suffocation. A second autopsy yielded a different conclusion, but when the second autopsy was performed, his body had been stuffed with newspaper, and his organs were missing.

Organ2....

More recently in September 2014, 24-year-old Ryan Singleton’s body was found in a California desert with his eyes, heart, lung, liver and kidneys missing. Singleton’s mother believes that his organs were stolen because the rest of his body remained in tact, meaning the organs had not been eaten by animals.

As the disparity between supply and demand for organs  continues to be insurmountable, authorities are considering rewriting the 1984 law that bans the sale of organs, but in the meantime, the World Health Organization estimates that a human organ is illegally sold every hour, and families all over the world are left without answers about their loved ones death’s and burials.

Missing women....

Organ4.....

Here’s some information taken from Selfuni’s WordPress blog:

64,000 African-Americans girls are reported missing, but nobody’s looking for them.  Why?

Despite representing 12.85% of the population, black Americans accounted for nearly 226,000 — or 34% — of all missing persons reported in 2012. According to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, the comparison with other racial groups is unfavorable: Whites and Hispanics are a combined 80.1% of the population, but account for 60% of missing persons.

This is especially troubling when you break down the numbers by age. Black and Missing reports that 37% of missing minors and 28.2% of missing adults in 2013 were black. No fewer than 270,000 minorities have gone missing since 2010, 135,000 of whom were black and 64,000 were black women, according to the Atlanta Black Star.

Essence points to a 2010 report titled “Missing Children in National News Coverage,” which found that while black children accounted for 33.2% of missing children that year, the media exposure rate was an unimpressive 19.5%. While black men go missing at statistically higher rates, coverage of black female disappearances is particularly telling in light of the attention similar stories get when white women are involved.

“In the field, I’ve seen a majority of black missing children classified as runaways, who don’t get Amber Alerts.”

Medical History

No way the same US government and media that gave so much attention to 2-300 Nigerian girls would ignore 64,000(!) its own, unless there was a reason.  The most likely reason is organ harvesting, and the  skin is the body’s biggest organ.  Considering America’s dark history of medical exploitation of Blacks, this isn’t as far-fetched as it seems at first.

First of all, there’s a long history of medical research using unwitting/unwilling African-American women for medical experiments:

on the 19th century medical plantation—a locality spatially separate from the agricultural plantation—black women’s bodies were imagined as the ideal test subjects of research and innovation within what became modern gynecology.

http://dsq-sds.org/article/view/3248/3184

That trend has continued from Emancipation until today, at the GOVERNMENT level: ”

throughout their long history in the USA, African-Americans have been secretly used as guinea pigs for medical experimentation by various American governments

http://newafricanmagazine.com/medical-scandal/#sthash.YEwwEi19.dpuf

It’s a MARKET. The medical industry cannot advance without unwitting/unwilling Black subjects. Cells secretly harvested, and later cultivated from a Black woman are the source of ALL cells used for medical research- vaccines, cloning, testing, etc. “This represented an enormous boon to medical and biological research” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrietta_Lacks
