Plantation Retreats- Black Degradation and White Depravity

Flag1..

Retreat1..

Those who have loved and dated across the color line have to negotiate the realities of race in our society, and by extension, its impact on their relationships. For many, this is done through explicit conversations. For others, these dialogues come implicitly, through gestures, and taken for granted shared assumptions.

But how many folks actually talk about how race impacts their own sexuality, attraction, physicality, or notions of the erotic?
We live in a society that is structured around many different hierarchies of power, authority, and difference. As Foucault brilliantly observed, Power is not sitting out there in the ether, an abstraction that we just talk about in philosophy classes. Power acts through and upon bodies. Certain people are racialized in American society for example. Their bodies are locations of power–and yes resistance. Likewise, certain types of bodies are marked as “normal,” while others are deemed “different” or “abnormal.”
The “popular” imagination holds many assumptions about particular types of bodies. The black male body is something to be policed, controlled, and feared. It is both envied and despised. The Asian female body is “erotic” and “submissive.” The black female body alternates between being fecund, always available, and out of control, while simultaneously being marked as “masculine,” asexual, and unattractive. Latinas are “hot” and “sexy.” White bodies of a certain type are taken as the baseline for what is considered “beautiful” or “normal.”
Mandingo2..
Ironically, the bodies of black and brown people which are considered beautiful or attractive by the white gaze are judged as such either by how “different” they are from white norms (the exotic or savage) or how close these racialized bodies–almost like impostors or stand-ins–are to the normalized white body.
The very language we use to discuss race, the physical, and the sexual, is a quotidian example of Power in action. But, how are matters complicated when a significant part of a given person’s sexuality, and sense of the erotic, is centered on playing around with the dynamics surrounding dominance and submission?
Consider the following passage from the Colorlines article “Playing with Race”:
Bed wench...

Contrary to popular notions, BDSM is not about abuse. It’s consensual and trusting and people refer to it as “play” (as in “I want to play with you”). The point of BDSM is not sexual intercourse. In fact, when Williams recalls her first experience as a masochist seven years ago, she says she met her partner, a white man, at a bar and “fell in love at first sight.” They made their way back to his hotel. “For the first time I felt someone could see who I really was.” And that was someone who found it erotic to be a submissive to her partner.

In recent years, Williams has added another element to her repertoire as a masochist. She’s begun to engage in what is called “race play” or “racial play”—that is getting aroused by intentionally using racial epithets like the word “nigger” or racist scenarios like a slave auction.

Race play is being enjoyed in the privacy of bedrooms and publicly at BDSM parties, and it’s far from just black and white. It also includes “playing out” Nazi interrogations of Jews or Latino-on-black racism, and the players can be of any racial background and paired up in a number of ways (including a black man calling his black girlfriend a “nigger bitch”). White master seeking black slave, however, seems the more popular of the combinations.

I could not engage is such types of role-playing. My personal politics would not allow it; my libido would not respond.

That is my choice. I do not deny others their pleasure.

Mandingo3..

However, as someone interested in the relationship between race, politics, and racial ideologies, I am fascinated by how individuals negotiate white supremacy and Power.

Are people like Williams or Mollena more “evolved” and “progressive” than those of us who cannot decouple the realities and burdens of race from their bodies and psyches in the present? Alternatively, could this deep sense of both owning and living in a racialized body, be turned into a location for pleasure and catharsis:

Vi Johnson, the black matriarch of BDSM, has presented on race play at kinky conferences and she believes the appeal is different for each person. “When you’re being sexually stimulated, you’re not thinking that what’s stimulating you is a racist image, ” she says. “You’re just getting turned on.”

So, for some, she says, race play is about playing with authority and for others, it might be humiliation.

Well-known sexuality and SM educator Midori, who is Japanese and German, often presents her theory that humiliation in BDSM is linked to self-esteem. Take the woman who likes it when her boyfriend calls her a “slut,” Midori says. Perhaps the woman internalized the idea that “good girls don’t,” but she enjoys her sexuality. Because the boyfriend sees her in all her complexity, Midori says, when he calls her a slut, “he is freeing her of the social expectations of having to be modest.”

That’s different than having some stranger (and jerk) calling you a slut. The stranger doesn’t see the full woman. It’s similar with race play, Midori says. By focusing, for example, on a black man’s body, while he’s bound as a slave, she’s bolstering his own perception of himself as strong and powerful…

Her workshop demonstrations have included full auction scenes mimicking those of the Old South. In them, she is the plantation mistress inspecting a black man for “purchase.” He’s in shackles and “I slap him on his face and push him down on the ground, make him lick my shoes,” she says, emphasizing that she only does the demonstration after the “psychological” talk.

In the interest of transparency, I am a sex positive person (at least according to the survey on yourmorals.org). In many ways, I am also a bit of a libertine and a hedonist who is comfortable in both exclusive and open relationships. I also have certain predilections and tastes that more “vanilla” folks could find “kinky” or “different.” Ultimately, I am just myself, and do not know how to pretend to be anyone else.
I am also full of contradictions and complications as sexuality and the erotic are not neatly bounded constructs (for example, I do not like watching interracial porn where white men have aggressive sex with black women as chattel slavery looms too large in my mind; however, I have no problems watching black men have aggressive sex with white women). I have also dated many women from a range of racial backgrounds: I love women; I love variety.
I share those details not to titillate; rather, because while I am rendering a judgement of sorts, I would not want to sound “judgmental.” The difference is a subtle, but nonetheless, an important one.
One of the questions I will be asking Viola Johnson from the Carter Johnson Leather Library when I interview her in the next few weeks (fingers crossed) is how do we separate more “healthy” types of race play from those encounters that are rooted in disdain for the Other and white supremacy. Are these just inter-personal contracts or do these types of sexual relationships gain power (and are made erotic) precisely because of how they signal to larger societal taboos?
If the website Fetlife is any indication, there is apparently a not insubstantial number of people who engage in sexual roleplaying and BDSM using the motif of chattel slavery in the antebellum South. A cursory review of the member profiles suggests that many of these people are white supremacists. This is apparently not a deterrent to the black men and women who want to “serve” these white masters.
Race play...

Here a white “slave owning” master offers some insight on race play and “plantation retreats”:

My major kink-interest is in chattel slave-ownership in today’s world but following the historical models of 8,000 years of historical slave-ownership tradition (from Greek-Roman through modern day)…along with everything that might relate to it (which sometimes can go pretty far into the realm of BDSM activities, depending on the partner). I’m very knowlegble in the field of historical slavery.

Some of my other non-kink interests include history and philosophy, classic cars, music, science, singing and writing lyrics, architecture, comparative culture, language, reading and counseling..

I get a lot of questions about “Plantation Retreat”…so here are some basic facts:

My goal in creating and hosting Plantation Retreat is to provide a safe and welcoming, private place (and opportunity) for White Masters and plantation slaves/niggers to meet and explore their mutual fantasies. I get a lot of questions and answer many individual questions. To simplify things…here is some general basic information:

The gathering lasts for up to 2 weeks this year, with the main gathering around the 4th of July…folks can stay as long or as short a time as they want (some stay even longer). Masters can stay at the compound here or in a hotel if they want to (as can any personal slaves that they bring with them or any other slave that is ordered to do so).

Slaves arriving on their own stay here and are considered (and protected) as property of the plantation or my personal property.

Slaves sign up for a specific length of service. Slaves can specify what their limits are or that they will serve in any way the Master/guests desire. Sex is not required, but depends on individual choice (as do other activities). Most Masters desire to use slaves sexually in addition to normal domestic services. Some slaves are used only for hard labor. A slave’s assignments and duties are based on its experience and ability-level (some require whipping or punishment). Masters have their own king or queen bed (up to 5 available); slaves sleep where they are told to sleep (unless they are ordered into a Master’s bed and allowed to sleep there). Normally a slave sleeps at the foot of a Master’s bed, but some can be chained or caged elsewhere.

The minimum requirement for slaves is that they be obedient and respectful of all Masters and work to give the Masters and enjoyable time. This can be anything from preparing and serving drinks and meals, doing housework or yard work, to providing sexual relief on demand, to hard labor in the compound (depending on the slave’s previously-stated limitations). Slaves should expect Masters to be totally comfortable and free in using humiliating or degrading racist speech in referring to or speaking to mud-slaves. It’s not all punishment and misery for slaves…there is plenty of time for camaraderie and playful fun also. Some slaves even form a brotherly bond with the other slaves that serve with them. Masters also form lasting bonds and friendships based on their mutual interests and sharing slaves.

It’s just a small friendly gathering of White Masters at my house/compound….being served by mud-slaves as might have been in a modern version of slave-days. one might call it a situation of consensual non-consent/slavery. Slaves can set their limits and the time they will be in service as slaves in advance…. and also what they expect to learn and experience from the experience. The more that a slave lets me know about itself in advance, the better I can guide its growth from the experience.

Backstage racism mates with BDSM, the eroticization of the black body, and finds a place online through a variant of cyber-racism. Amazing. We do in fact live in interesting times.

White supremacy is a mental illness. Western (and global) society is sick with it. All of us, across the color line, have been impacted by white supremacy and white racism. But who are we to judge how adults in a consensual relationship decide to work through its pain and ugliness?
As is per our tradition at WARN, here are some concluding questions.
Have any of you engaged in race play? For those of you in inter-racial relationships, how do you negotiate these bigger questions of race and the erotic? If our kinks and sexual predilections are in some way a function of life experience, trauma, early childhood experiences, etc. what happened in the life of a black person who is willing to play a slave for the pleasures of white racists?

Tales of Buffoonery: Episode 15(Magic Johnson)

Magic1..

Recently Nike dropped boxer Manny Pacquiao as a spokesman after  making anti-gay remarks.  I’m not the biggest fan of Manny but he has the right to speak his mind. He doesn’t have to support the gay agenda if he doesn’t want to.  On this one issue I do agree with him.  And this fool Magic Johnson lends his support of Nike.Los Angeles Lakers legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson supported Nike’s decision to drop boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao after the Filipino’s derogatory remarks toward gay people.

“I applaud Nike for terminating Manny Pacquiao’s contract after his derogatory statements that gay people are worse than animals,” Johnson posted on Twitter Thursday.

Pacquiao, a devout Christian, caused a stir worldwide for saying that gays and lesbians are worse than animals, a comment which prompted Nike to drop the boxer from its roster of athletes.

Nike launched a Be True campaign in support of gay marriage in the United States.

Johnson added gay people contributed to the more than $300 million in ticket and pay-per-view sales of Pacquiao’s fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. last year.

“Fans of all walks of life including gay fans supported May/Pac fight putting up $100 million in his pocket. I guess to him their money is still green,” Johnson also tweeted.

Johnson, who is a boxing fan, has watched several of Pacquiao’s fights including one of the four against Juan Manuel Marquez and the Mayweather bout, but it’s safe to say he won’t be there in the Filipino’s final against Timothy Bradley.

“I won’t be watching another one of Manny Pacquiao’s fights.

Magic Son

It’s a real shame to see Magic bow down to this sick gay agenda.  I used to love watching him play for the Lakers when I was a kid.  I grew up being a huge Los Angeles  Laker fan.  But it’s obvious that Magic has sold out.  As a kid I always heard rumors of Magic being a homosexual. Of course I was a fan so I refused to believe such claims. But I do remember him kissing his friend Isaiah Thomas each time they played against each other. But looking at this pic of his gay son EJ(above) it makes you wonder.  Like father,like son??

 

Tales of Buffoonery:Episode 14(Will Smith)

Will Smith1

I’m really getting tired of Will Smith pandering to white racists. He’s had a lot of success making films that make white people comfortable. I guess you could call them “raceless” films. And because of that he has become a media darling.  But lately he and his wife have criticized Hollywood for a lack of diversity. They are asking black people to boycott the Academy Awards this year.  They’re a little late. Most black people I know don’t really give a damn about the Oscars anyway.  But I think this is mostly sour grapes because he didn’t get nominate for his film Concussion.  He had a terrible African accent in the film.  He was not very believable in my opinion.  Well now he has hit a new low. This fool did an interview a few months ago with the Hollywood Reporter.  This clown actually said racism is rare.  Rare? On what planet?  The entire system is racist! This is insane in my mind. Here’s the quote:

“Everybody is prejudiced,” he said. “Everybody has their life experiences that make them prefer one thing over another — it makes them prefer blond hair over a brunette; if you see somebody with dark skin walking down the street, you have a different reaction than you have [with] someone who is 5-foot-1 and white.”

The word “racism,” he said, implies something worse: the feeling that “your race generally is superior.”

“And I have to say, I live with constant prejudice, but racism is actually rare — someone who thinks their race is superior,” Smith continued.

Smith said that, on the rare occasions when he’s encountered someone in Hollywood who’s actually racist, he’s immediately decided not to work with them. And, he said, it does happen.

A moment later, the interviewer asked if actors could do anything to fight this kind of racism. The other African-American actor on the panel, Samuel L. Jackson, answered with a simple “No.” But Smith was more optimistic about their chances.

“As actors, we have the ultimate power,” he said. “Historically, story combined with imagery moves humanity forward. What we do — not that it’s a responsibility, but it is the ultimate forum for changing people’s hearts and minds.”

Will Smith2..

Here’s a picture of Smith smooching David Letterman. I find it very fitting. Since he loves to kiss white ass so much!  I swear this man is a closet homosexual! This man has NO pride. To say that racism is rare is to diminish the oppression and suffering of African people by a racist society.  You’re a disgrace Mr Smith!

Tales of Buffoonery: Episode 13(Chiwetel Ejiofor)

Chiwetel..

I haven’t done a Buffoonery post in awhile.  And I know a lot of my followers like them so I thought I’d bring it back.  When I saw this article I knew I had to do a post on it. British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor recently said that homosexuals have it harder than blacks.  Can you believe that?  It’s bad enough his wife is white but to say something like that is unforgivable.  And people still tell me the gay agenda is not real. I thought I had misread it when I first saw it. Chiwetel Ejiofor believes Hollywood still marginalizes people because of their sexuality. The industry has been accused of a lack of diversity following the 2016 Academy Awards nominations, where no African-American actor or director was nominated for a top honor for the second year in a row, but the actor “believes it’s harder for someone to succeed if they’re homosexual than if they’re black. “I hope this changes (but) I think it’s probably harder to be gay,” he said.

“I think sexuality is still marginalized in a way that is pretty open. I think it’s tough. I think for one’s own peace of mind, for one’s own sense of self and psychological health, I feel like that’s the horrible thing about ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’… Because it produces a sense of shame, and therefore this sense of being ‘less than’, you know? And I hate that. I hate that for anybody.”

But Ejiofor, 38, argues that at the same time, a person’s sexuality isn’t anyone else’s business, and if the individual wants to, they should be able to declare their preference without fear of it affecting their opportunities in life in any way.

“If I hadn’t had the opportunities and the fortune that I have had, of course I would have a very different perspective to that, but I can’t be completely intellectually dishonest about what has happened in my life… It’s a tiny bit more nuanced for me to talk about,” he explained.”

This is taking self-hating coonery to a new level.  Hollywood is ran by a bunch of Jewish butt pirates…but they have it harder than blacks??  What do you think?

Lee Daniels & Danny Strong: Masters of Black Degradation

Daniels1

The above picture is director/producer Lee Daniels and Danny Strong. This “dynamic duo” is doing everything they can to vilify and destroy the image of black people. Danny Strong is a man of Jewish descent. And of course most of Hollywood is ran and controlled by Jews. So I don’t think Strong is losing any sleep about promoting negative stereotypes of black people. Strong could care less about the plight of black people. But Daniels seems more than happy to help him in his quest. I’ve seen many of Daniels films over the years. He’s directed films like Shadowboxer,The Paperboy,Precious and The Butler. Daniels also produced Monster’s ball and The Woodsman. The Woodsman starred actor Kevin Bacon. It was about a  pedophile trying to “reform”.  Sounds very inspiring right?  Many of his films seem to follow a pattern. They always seem to involve rape,incest,interracial sex,black degradation,colorism,anti-blackness and homosexuality. And many times these subjects are seem in a positive light. It’s like his films are either promoting these things or he’s trying to get us to understand these sexual perversions. I think Daniels is a mentally ill man. I’m not joking. I’m very serious.How can any self respecting black man promote these things? He should be ashamed of himself. This man must be insane!

The screenplay for The Butler was written by Danny Strong. A film that was made to remind us we as black people are still servants in this country. Now Daniels and Strong have teamed up again to bring us the new drama…EMPIRE.

Empire5

This show has been getting huge ratings since it premiered a few weeks ago. It stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. The negative stereotypes are endless. Terrence plays music mogul Lucious Lyon. And Taraji is his ex wife Cookie. Lucious and Cookie??? Not stereotypical names at all right? But ir doesn’t stop there. He has three sons involved in the company.

His son Andre plays the clean shaven,educated,corny sellout Uncle Tom. Of course he has MUST have a white wife right?

Empire4

Then there is Jamal. He is the passionate songwriter. The sensitive misunderstood homosexual son. His gay lover is a Latino man.

Empire1

An interracial gay couple! I wonder where Lee Daniels got the idea for that relationship?

Daniels2

Oh yeah! Never mind.

Lee Daniels was also kind enough to give Gabourey Sibide a part on the show. She most famous for playing the star in the film Precious. She plays the dark skinned overweight,blonde weave wearing assistant for Lucious Lyon.

Empire2

Cookie also has an assistant. Her name is Porsha. Played by actress Ta’Rhonda Jones.

Empire3

Much like Cookie,Porsha plays a brash,loud mouth ghetto talking black woman. I also noticed that there was a black maid in an episode. She was dark skinned just like Gabourey and Ta’Rhonda. I hope this is not colorism. I hope Daniels is not trying to tell us subliminally that dark skinned people should be seen as servants to others. Of course not! He would never try to brainwash us like that……..would he? Then there is the son,Hakeem. He is the aspiring rapper that wants to please his father. Hakeem is an ignorant,self centered sex- crazed fool. Not much different than his mother Cookie. Even the father Lucious is trying to be a shrewd businessman in the corporate world. But he ends up killing his best friend. So this reinforces the idea that the black man is still a cold blooded killer at heart. This show is NOT good for black people. Everyone is double crossing each other. It paints black people with a broad brush. This is no different than the sick reality shows. Black people must change our way of thinking. We have to stop gravitating towards ignorance and things that put us in a negative light. Danny Strong is a sick,twisted racist man! He knows exactly what he’s doing. What does he know about black life? Not one damn thing!! He’s filled this show with every negative self destructive stereotype of black people you can name. This Jewish man is an enemy to black people. I also suspect he’s a homosexual,which is why he and Daniels promote it so much.

Empire7

Lee Daniels is an enemy too. I realize that white supremacy is the REAL enemy. As well as the Jewish controlled media. But the time has come to call out some people. Daniels is a self hating,narcissistic,mentally ill man. And shows like Empire promote black dysfunction as normal. And Lee Daniels and Danny Strong have perfected the art of black misery.Their films and television shows show black people as pitiful,unloved,unworthy and devalued. It’s time to say….NO MORE!!

Tales of Buffoonery: Episode 7 (Charles Barkley)

Charles

Where do I start with this guy? Charles Barkley is a big loud mouth. Most of the time he should just keep his mouth shut. He’s one of the biggest self hating athletes in the sports world. A true boot licking Uncle Tom in my opinion. He has no dignity or self respect.  A total kiss ass for white supremacy! Anytime he criticizes black people the mainstream media is right there to promote. You know he’s anti-black because racist bigot Rush Limbaugh is one of his biggest supporters. What does that tell you? This over weight cross dresser is an insult to black men everywhere. He makes so many anti-black statements I could do a whole “Tales of Buffoonery” series on him alone. I want you to check out his recent statements. I think he should just shut the hell up! You might disagree. Let me know your thoughts.

Former NBA star Charles Barkley said during a recent radio interview that “we would be living in the wild, Wild West” if it weren’t for police officers and that there is no excuse for “scumbags” to be torching police vehicles in Ferguson, Missouri.

“I can’t believe anything I hear on television anymore,” he said on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia on Tuesday, the day after a grand jury decided not to indict the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown. Mr. Barkley said he agreed with the grand jury’s decision.
