The Black Experience Is Not A Game You Play On Xbox!

Whoo!

Lawd!

I’m very quick when I get irritated but this young cat gets my RESPECT!

Ah, Hotep.  Not being comical but as you progress in the post, you’ll over-stand the greeting.

To set the preface, he’s talking to the ethics of certain people out here reppin’ Black empowerment, i.e., The Scribes, Black Hebrew Israelites, Dr. Umar Johnson, Irritated Genie, Red Pill and Blue Pill,et al; and the motivation of this video, one David Banner. He’s now joined the organized cabal of street, so called, “enlightened” hustlers out there using Black history as a come-up to wealth that either they don’t have the education or talent to make for themselves.  So their strategy has now become to pimp poor Black people with information that many could find on their own if they would just pay a visit to their local library.

When I listened to this…I was blown away.  Check it out for your selves and leave your comments below.

Was he right?

Dr. Umar Johnson Talks Man to MAN about Interracial Dating/Marriage…

 

For many years, this topic continues to dominate discussions.  I’ve written numerous articles on it.  And I really could GO THERE!  However, when I did, it was always typical: a group of Black men, mainly those guilty of this, always seemingly tried to hack the discussion–and per usual, the Black women that responded would be angry and unrepentant in their opposition to it.

However, it’s very different when a man weighs in.

Dr. Umar Johnson is very blunt about how he feels on Black issues.  He is unapologetically BLACK!!!  And after listening to the video; I felt that he hit on some very important points.

So, listen to it, and I invite rebuttals.

The Music of Bob Marley is The Remedy For Our Trying Times…

This weekend, one of my aunts was laid to rest after an unexpected illness.  I’ve been thinking about a lot of things lately and today, Bob Marley came to mind.  His music means so much to so many people around the world.

Redemption song was based on slavery in the new world.

Does this not sound like what we’re feeling subliminally?

Bob Marley was a unique individual as well as an inspired artist.  He used his music to educate, empower, and protest the powers that be.

In light of everything happening, I chose to post one of his last concerts before he passed away in 1982.

Watch, grow and listen.

Enjoy!

Introducing Christelyn Karazin…The Rise and Fall of a Negro Bedwench! OMG!

Whoo, Chile…I watched this crazy video while surfing YouTube and I just couldn’t. OMG!

Ladies and gentleman, meet, Chrystelyn Karazin. Head Negro Bedwench.  This Black woman hates Black men and has become a sensation on the channel for her rantings against them.

The narrator you here, goes by the name of The Black Authority.  And he saw this video by Christelyn.

Well, in this commentary breakdown of one of her videos, apparently, she’s upset because a white man that she flirted with on her channel, who goes by the name of The Vegenator, spoke honestly about why he’s just not interested in swirling.  He made a video about it and guess what?  He got a lot of likes—from Black men too, who supported his choice.  Ok. Life goes on.  Chrystelin saw the video and went nuts because of it.  She went Scarlet O’Hara and her performance should be nominated for an Academy award.  Her response is crazy.

Is there a psychiatrist on this channel? This woman is married to a white man. And she just felt, after being rejected by a white man on YouTube named the Vegenator (whom she doesn’t know) who isn’t attracted to Black women; now, she’s personally responsible for the hatred against Black women?

Personally, I’m not looking for the Great White Hope nor do I find white men the correct genetic choice for any conscious, intelligent Sista. Black people are 100% HUE-man (as in color) and are the original people of this earth. Why would any sane Black woman choose a low, bestial, reptilian brain, fragmented thinking, genetic defect, over a BLACK MAN? OMG!

I’m sorry, intelligent Black men aren’t defending stupid Black women who contribute to white supremacy; and then try to pull an Erica Cain emotional hustle on Black folks because some white dude managed to damage her sociopathy with one damn comment.

Is there a Hollywood producer on here?

THIS IS HER LIFE!

I’m doin’ just fine, THANK YOU….

The Greatest of All Time By Far…RIP Muhammad Ali

hqdefault (4)

On Friday night, I was still up when television programming was interrupted with *BREAKING NEWS*.  It had been reported earlier that day that Muhammad Ali had to be rushed to the hospital and that he was being placed on a ventilator.  I knew what was about to come: Muhammad Ali had died.

In that moment, the reflections that I had made me travel back to my childhood.  I remember watching many of the Champs greatest fights on Wide World of Sports on ABC. That was a time when boxing still was exciting to watch.  From Joe Frazier to George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Ken Norton, Roberto Duran, et al, I saw some of the greatest boxing ever.  Muhammad was also entertaining. He amused sports writers and made everyone laugh.  He especially made Black people proud.  His bravado was revolutionary at a time when it was naturally expected by white people for Black people to capitulate and be seen but not heard.  Not Muhammad. His mouth was as fast as his fists. This is the Muhammad Ali I remember before he was stricken with Parkinson’s Disease.

When it was announced that he had the disease, I was still in high school. I didn’t have much of a reaction.  But as the years would go by and the Champ’s physical condition deteriorated, I was ever more thankful of the memories of the fast talking, quit witted, comical poet and humanitarian that left us with so many memories.

At this moment, I reflect on what I admired about Mr. Ali.  And truthfully, it was not his boxing.  The traits I liked in Muhammad was that he was bold and courageous.  You see, he stood up for racism and injustice at a time when that wasn’t popular.  When he said he was “The Greatest of All Time”  he meant that.  Call it a premonition of destiny but he lived up to ever word of it.  However, to be great, one has to overcome many things.  And when he was convicted of draft dodging, after protesting the Vietnam War, Muhammad suffered a lot financially and personally.  He angered government officials and they tried to destroy him.  He lost an incredible amount of money at this time, not being allowed to fight. It would be a long 5 years.  However, he continued to speak out about what he believed.  He earned the entire world’s respect and was raised up.  You see, Muhammad Ali was just an athlete–he was a conscious man who was strong enough to lived by his convictions.  He took hard jabs at a society about pervasive racism against his people.

Since the 1960’s, The name Muhammad Ali has been known to the word.  And the mere mentioning of it can spark even the hardest person to smile.

The tributes will be many.

Mine is just one of them.

However, I am very sincere when I say…that I’m glad that God gave us Muhammad Ali for 74 years.

His funeral is planned for Friday in Louisville Kentucky.

After a long, wonderful life and journey, The Greatest of All Time shall now be put to rest where it all began….

RIP Muhammad Ali.

OMG! Imitation of Life: A Real Life Case!

91JXVhnbusL._SL1500_

Today, one of my friends posted a video from an old Judge Maybelline show from a few years back.  I watched it, and I was floored.

Do you guys remember the old movie Imitation of Life about a mulatto girl passing for white, trying to hide her Black identity, all the while her mother, a Black housekeeper loved her, even though in her denial of self, she rejected her time and time again.

There were two versions. The first in 1934 and the other in 1959.  Most people prefer the latter.

Examine the description of the plot of the movie:

Lora Meredith (Lana Turner), a white single mother who dreams of being on Broadway, has a chance encounter with Annie Johnson (Juanita Moore), a black widow. Annie becomes the caretaker of Lora’s daughter, Suzie (Sandra Dee), while Lora pursues her stage career. Both women deal with the difficulties of motherhood: Lora’s thirst for fame threatens her relationship with Suzie, while Annie’s light-skinned daughter, Sarah Jane (Susan Kohner), struggles with her African-American identity.

There really were people who passed.

I’ve heard of some of the cases over the years but never took the time to really get into the lunacy of self-hatred.  It’s a crime of nature in some ways.  God made us the way we are. That’s not any reason to hate one’s self if the Creator

Loving one’s self is a personal decision and I abhor anyone who doesn’t love themselves.

This is the seed of slavery and its mental effects on people of color.

All mother and daughters have issues. However, I will stand before the Queen of England and give my mother praise. She raised me to be who I am today. I’m not the richest woman on earth but my life is wealthy because of the standard my mother set before me. I walk talk with the best of them and whenever I walk into a room; my self esteem is so high, everyone in that room would want to be me. That’s GOOD PARENTING.

Anyway, I’d like you all to watch this video and comment.

As with what happened at the end of Imitation of Life, there is a similar conclusion.

It’s sad.

You can’t raise your children to be Black and proud if the images they see don’t reflect that.

 

 

The Dark Skin Behind The Mask…

61181181ff05b868b23cf7a28c3e5ed8

Colorism is back.  In all its ugly forms. The shade of Black you are determines what level of acceptance you receive today.  Many thought this had died after the 60’s but that was all covered up when the late multiculturalism convinced many among us that race no longer mattered.  We all were safe now from the big, bad, white hooded, masked racists who terrorized Black people in old times.

But that was all a lie.

White people are evil creatures who inflict many mental wounds of people of color and I was thinking today of just how deep it reaches.

Malcolm X once asked: “Who taught you to hate yourself?”  He highlighted this in this timeless speech in 1962.

The only reason this matters is because many Black people are psychologically programmed to hate themselves. Mental enslavement is a disease that can only be cured by self-love. You learn to love yourself from your parents.

At the end of the day, what you think of yourself is the only thing that matters. I’m honey-complexioned and don’t feel marginalized because of my skin tone. I do have female relatives who are dark-skinned, as we all do. Yes, I’ve witnessed firsthand how colorism impacts our people.

Black people are too concerned with what white people think of them and this is where the problem lies. Why does it matter to us what they think? A white person trying to dictate beauty standards on Black people is the equivalent of a cat trying to teach a dog how to bark. Their opinion should not even matter.

The ignorance that white people project on Black people is innately them projecting their own self-hatred onto us. What they demean about us, in truth, is knowing that Black people are what they can never be: THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF THIS PLANET.

Our Blackness is our blessing. Their white skin is a curse. That hate that Black skin because it is a constant reminder from the creator of who was created in HIS image.

White people are at negative birthrate right now. World wide, the white population will be cut in half in less than 35 years. This has caused fear of extinction in as little as 100 years. What does that say?

Our skin is melanated gold. Our brain and body can’t function without melanin. Melanin is the chemical key to life itself. It is the major organizing molecule for living systems.

We are the only beings on this planet that have the power to create another race–other races cannot do that.

The next time any white person tries to inflict their mental sickness onto you for having dark skin, remind them that it’s because of the component of that dark skin that created ALL LIFE.

What this says is the BLACK LIFE DOES MATTER because without out it; nothing would exist.

We are the world!
