My Skin is My Sin- Is it time to go underground?(Part 2 of 2)

Ninja1...

I’ve been on social media for over a decade. I have been in contact with black people on WordPress,Youtube and Twitter.  And I’ve had subscribers share my posts on Twitter,Tumblr and Facebook.  I have had some great conversations with black people here in the United States as well as Africa,Canada,London,Brazil and Jamaica.  We have talked about many subjects.  On my blog I have covered black power,black love,black families,African culture,black leaders,black business,survival skills,police brutality,politics,prison population,African history,racism,slavery,interracial marriage,biracial people,conspiracies and of courseEuropean global power. Through my years of research I realize that the government is spying on everyone.  The can track your whereabouts with your cellphone.  The FBI and CIA are also recording all your phone conversations.  And all your text messages are sent to a central database.  They also can hear your conversation at home with Smart TV’s.  They are constantly spying on us everywhere.

All this unnecessary surveillance has gotten out of control. All of our information is being consumed by the government. We must keep in mind that most of the social media is owned by white people.  YouTube,Instagram,Twitter,Tumblr,Wordpress,Google,Snapchat and Facebook are all owned and controlled by Europeans.  With so much surveillance you can’t really make any moves without them watching you.  Not to mention they can find most people using their email.  At times it feels like you can’t go anywhere without a closed caption camera in your face. There are cameras in banks,schools,hotels,airports,hospitals,restaurants and bars.  We are really living in a prison planet.

And if all this surveillance wasn’t enough people you still have people willingly giving up their personal information.  They have trained us to give up our information voluntarily and can use that information to create a personal database about the person.  The video(above) is an Apple advertisement for the new iPhone X.  It shows that that you can unlock it with facial recognition.  Sounds pretty neat right?  I think it’s a bad idea.  The first iPhones could be unlocked with a password.  Then they had the iPhones that could be unlocked only with a person’s thumbprint.  Now they come out with phones with facial recognition.  It seems to me they are slowly collecting data on everyone.  I also would tell people to beware of these DNA tests that have become popular in the last few years.  Companies like MyHeritage,23andMe,AncestryDNA and Living DNA are not always accurate.  Just be mindful when using them.  I have a funny feeling they are collecting the DNA of people and studying their genes.  Who knows?  They could use your DNA to create a disease that only attacks people with certain DNA strands.

FBI1...

So I just want to know your thoughts.  Do you think we need to go underground?  How can you have a movement without racist government agencies(FBI,CIA) watching your every move?  I know some people who have left Youtube because of all the restrictions.  Then there are others who have stopped blogging at WordPress due to frustration.  Some of our people feel so beat down and they’ve decided to give up.  I get frustrated just like anyone else.  I’ve thought about leaving WordPress and Youtube at times. Trying to wake people up can get very tiring and it starts to wear on you. It’s not that I want to give up it’s just I want some practical solutions. I want our people to be free mentally and physically.  And it seems black people don’t want to change.  Not all…..but too many of us.

Bloggers..

Kemet1...

Do we need our own social media?  I have heard black people mention sites like Blaqspot.com.  And the conscious black dating site Kemet Klique.  I don’t know if they are totally 100% Black operated.  If someone knows please tell me.  I still need to do research on these black social media sites.  But I’m asking all my fellow bloggers.  I know I have a lot of intelligent subscribers.  I know some of you have some great ideas.  So I’m asking Onitaset,Land of Kam,Hung Like Jesus,Negress,Cree,Shelby Courtland,Trojan Pam,Kelley,CC Saunders,Amos Magazine,OriginalBlackWoman,TruthAngel,BlackMyStory,Melanin Man,Lumumba Afrika,Sparks,1TawnyStranger,King Lo the Rastar,Kween Jasira,Malaika Mutere,Sunny Delyte,Clifford Green,M’Bwebe Ishangi,Roshumba Monique,FourthAngelsBowl,Moorbey,Nidotopian Warrior,Universal Jones and Tired Sista for your thoughts.  I’m open to any suggestions.  Should we leave YouTube and WordPress?  If we do,how do we communicate with each other?  Should we do it through email?  I ask because we need our own private spaces to communicate without outside interference. We are all being watched at every turn.   maybe we need to move in silence like ninjas. Any black person on social media that is trying liberate the minds of our people are seen as a threat. They don’t seem to care if you’re a Moor,Pan African,Hebrew Israelite or into Kemetic spirituality. All that matters is you’re trying to inform the black collective and open minds. They draw strength from our confusion.  Confusion is the enemy to revolution. We need some real solutions.  I’m open to hear anything at this point.  I’d love to hear your suggestions.

Loren Lott was born September 9,1992.  She  is a San Diego native. She came to Atlanta with her twin brother, Evan Lott, to earn her bachelor’s degree in Mass Media arts from Clark Atlanta University. Loren dreamed of entertaining, but her mother, Sharian Lott, told her at 7 she wouldn’t be able to go to Knott’s Berry Farm if she was famous so Loren decided to pursue other things, but Sharian did tell Loren that at 13 she could ask her again. Later Loren realized her mother just wanted her to have a normal childhood. To Sharian’s surprise when Loren turned 13 she asked her mother if she could act and Sharian accepted, and after sending hundreds of bold messages to agents Loren finally got one in Hollywood along with a manager a month later.

Black Storytellers: Should they have a Black spouse?

I saw this trailer about a month ago.   It’s for a six-part mini-series called Guerrilla on Showtime.  It’s about an interracial couple who are activists in London during the 1970’s.  It kind of  reminds me of the Black Panthers or Black Liberation Army movements.  It stars actor Babou Ceesay and actress Freida Pinto. Actor Idris Elba also is in the series. But I thought it was strange that the film had Indian actress Freida Pinto has the lead actress.  And I saw virtually no black women in the trailer.  Black women have been fighting against racism and sexism since forever.  Is this the erasure of black women? And even if there are some black women in it…why is the lead female an Indian?  I guess some will say that it’s to show that Indian people struggle with racism as well.  But why can’t we ever show black men and women working together against their oppression?  Why can’t we see many more films of black men and women loving each other? What are we  supposed to take from films like this?  That it’s better to fight racism and oppression if you’re having sex with a  non-black person.  This is utter nonsense! And we can no longer fall for this trap. Black unity and black love  is the answer.

Freida Pinto...

Who needs Assata Shakur? Yaa Asantewaa is not needed either.  Freida Pinto will lead black people to freedom!  She is the savior for black people! This would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

John Ridley....

So after seeing the trailer I wanted to see who was the creator of this series.  I found out that the executive producer is John Ridley. Ridley is a screenwriter,novelist and director. He won an Academy award for his screenplay of 12 Years a Slave. He also is the producer of the show American Crime.  The picture(above) is of Ridley and his Asian wife Gayle.  His wife isn’t black so is this why he didn’t cast a black woman as the lead in his new series?  And why are all these men without black wives telling black stories?  And he’s not the only one. I have noticed black actors,directors and producers telling black stories without black wives.

Steve McQueen.....

This is director Steve McQueen.  McQueen grew up in London. He’s good friends with John Ridley because he directed 12 Years a Slave.  This picture(above) is McQueen and his Dutch wife Bianca.

David Oyelowo...

Actor David Oyelowo is another black British man.  He has been in films like The Butler,The Help,A United Kingdom and Jack Reacher. He even played Martin Luther King in the film Selma. Should this man be playing black historical figures?  This is a picture of him and his white wife Jessica.

Get Out poster....

Jordan Peele....

Actor/filmmaker Jordan Peele got a lot of praise for his horror film Get Out.  It broke box office records making over $160 million.  Some say it was a great horror film.  Some say it was a film that had a much more deep psychological meaning to it.  It definitely had a lot of subliminal messages regarding racsim,occultism and organ harvesting.  But some may not know that he’s biracial.  Peele has a white mother.  And his wife Chelsea is a Zionist Jew.  So even though he told some truths in the film Get Out..will expose it all? Will he tell black people everything that racists whites are doing in Hollywood?  Is wife is a Jew so I know he has some insider information.  But the question is…who is he loyal to?

Underground...

John Legend...

The television drama Underground takes place during slavery.  It has been getting good reviews from critics.  One of the executive producers is singer/songwriter John Legend. He will even play Frederick Douglass in an upcoming episode. His wife is model Chrissy  Teigen.  Her mother is Thai and father is white.  That makes her a hapa. If you don’t know what that is go look it up.

Nate Parker....

Of course we can’t forget actor/director Nate Parker. Parker directed the controversial slave rebellion film The Birth of a Nation.  The film had some good elements and some truth in it.  But it was mostly controversial because back when he was in college Parker was accused of raping a white woman. He claims he was innocent and that people should support the film.  I’ve seen him in interviews and he seems intelligent and articulate. But he can’t be too smart because if that white woman caused him so much grief why did he go and marry a white woman.  What sense does that make??? Some negroes never learn. Anyway this is a picture of him and his ugly ass wife Sarah.Sunken Place....

I bring up this issue because I wonder can they be trusted. Can they accurately tell the black experience?  Can they express our pain and struggle?  Can they express the truth about our oppressors if they’re married to them?  Can they be about black love but not married to black women?  These are the questions that come to my mind. But I think they hire these type of men because they know they’re not about black empowerment. They will always be intellectually dishonest about the black experience.  They know that since they have non-black wives they have already been compromised. The interracial element just adds more confusion to the black psyche. We must be careful watching anything by these men. These films have a way of  distorting black consciousness. And keeping us stuck in the “sunken place”.
