Be careful whom it is you hate; Sooner or later you turn into them

The other day I watched a documentary by a "former" Blood Gang member Cle "Bone" Sloan; called Bastards of the Party. In this documentary this dude talks about how he joined the gang, why he joined the gang and he somewhat touched on the history of gangs in the LA area. There was a lot of discussion as to why gangs where started in the late 40's, 50's and 60's. Gangs were started back then because of racism and protection from the racist practices that were prevalent back then. Blacks felt the need to band together to help one another out. Which is all good. I wish we still had that kind of unity and love for one another now.

But....There is always a but...

What is the reasoning and logic behind gangs today?
Who do we need protection from now?
I don't see the police and White gangs running around terrorizing Blacks today.

Is there still racism?
Is water wet?

But Black gangs of today are not protecting Blacks from racism. They are not protecting Black neighborhoods. They are not protecting Black women and children from being molested and raped if they are walking around these neighborhoods late at night. They are not walking kids to school in the early mornings to protect them from the "man". In fact they are doing the same shit now that they were originally trying to protect our people from.

So what was the purpose of this "former" Blood interviewing all the old heads in this documentary;getting them to shine some light on the history of how all this mess started, if all the gangs do today is ignore their history and become the thing that the gangs were started to fight against?

More Black men have been killed by other Black men than the KKK has ever thought about killing.
More Black men have been killed by other Black men than the Police has ever thought about killing.
I am guessing that more Black men have been killed by other Black men than in all the Wars that Black men have fought in while serving this country.

So what is the purpose of gangs today?

Is it still the White man's fault? Is the White man still pulling the triggers on all those guns in our neighborhoods?
Are they still loading all those clips? Are they still leaving a Black man's blood on the sidewalk outside of schools for young Black Children to walk around on their way to class?

Why are Black men still in gangs? Gangs designed not to protect, but to terrorize the people these gangs started out protecting?

What is the purpose of learning your History if you don't learn nothing from your History?

The Making of the African American,Negro, Colored or whatever we are told to call ourselves this year

This "speech" was supposedly given by a dude named William Lynch in the 1700's. There have been some doubts as to it's authenticity; however the tactics it outlines have been in use every since Black people were brought to this country. As a matter of fact, these tactics have been used to control and manipulate people of color all over the world. So whether or not this speech is legitimate and was actually given by a man named William Lynch doesn't really matter. What does matter is that it worked and is still working.

This speech was delivered by Willie Lynch on the bank of the James River in the colony of Virginia in 1712.  Lynch was a British slave owner in the West Indies. He was invited to the colony of Virginia in 1712 to teach his methods to slave owners there. The term “lynching” is derived from his last name.
[beginning of the Willie Lynch Letter]

Gentlemen. I greet you here on the bank of the James River in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and twelve. First, I shall thank you, the gentlemen of the Colony of Virginia, for bringing me here. I am here to help you solve some of your problems with slaves. Your invitation reached me on my modest plantation in the West Indies, where I have experimented with some of the newest, and still the oldest, methods for control of slaves. Ancient Rome would envy us if my program is implemented. As our boat sailed south on the James River, named for our illustrious King, whose version of the Bible we cherish, I saw enough to know that your problem is not unique. While Rome used cords of wood as crosses for standing human bodies along its highways in great numbers, you are here using the tree and the rope on occasions. I caught the whiff of a dead slave hanging from a tree, a couple miles back. You are not only losing valuable stock by hangings, you are having uprisings, slaves are running away, your crops are sometimes left in the fields too long for maximum profit, you suffer occasional fires, your animals are killed. Gentlemen, you know what your problems are; I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, I am here to introduce you to a method of solving them. In my bag here, I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is “AGE,” but it’s there only because it starts with an “a.” The second is “COLOR” or shade. There is INTELLIGENCE, SIZE, SEX, SIZES OF PLANTATIONS, STATUS on plantations, ATTITUDE of owners, whether the slaves live in the valley, on a hill, East, West, North, South, have fine hair, course hair, or is tall or short. Now that you have a list of differences, I shall give you an outline of action, but before that, I shall assure you that DISTRUST IS STRONGER THAN TRUST AND ENVY STRONGER THAN ADULATION, RESPECT OR ADMIRATION. The Black slaves after receiving this indoctrination shall carry on and will become self-refueling and self-generating for HUNDREDS of years, maybe THOUSANDS. Don’t forget, you must pitch the OLD black male vs. the YOUNG black male, and the YOUNG black male against the OLD black male. You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks. But it is NECESSARY THAT YOUR SLAVES TRUST AND DEPEND ON US. THEY MUST LOVE, RESPECT AND TRUST ONLY US. Gentlemen, these kits are your keys to control. Use them. Have your wives and children use them, never miss an opportunity. IF USED INTENSELY FOR ONE YEAR, THE SLAVES THEMSELVES WILL REMAIN PERPETUALLY DISTRUSTFUL. Thank you gentlemen.”

 Please leave a comment and share your thoughts on this. I want to know what you think, whether you think  this "speech" is fact or fiction or if it's words  have really defined Black American existence in this country.

America ranks 27th in the world when it comes to education...I wonder why?

Is it the American media's job to keep us informed about the important shit that is happening in our country on a daily basis; or is it their job to entertain us and keep our minds and thoughts OFF the important shit that is happening in our country on a daily basis?

I ask this because the other night our President gave a speech about our involvement in Afghanistan;( which I might be seeing in the near future by the way.)
I thought the speech was well said, but that is about it. In other words I thought it was a political speech filled with political talk that basically said a lot of pretty nice things but didn't say much of anything. The speech was very nice to listen to, given by a man that is according to the wifey, nice to look at; but it didn't mean nothing. Sorta like a hooker in Hunts Point up in the Bronx...Nice to look at with all the nice asses and titties; nice to listen to with the smooth silky way they ask for your money; but if you close your eyes and look with your mind instead of your eyes and hear with your gut instead of your ears; you will see, hear and understand exactly what is being shown to you and what is being told to you. Which is "you ain't nothing but a mark to me. You don't exist. You are only my car payment, my house note, food for my kids and my next hit of heroin. So fool listen to my nice voice. Look at my coke bottle ass shape and give me my money. But don't take too long in busting your nuts off, because I'ma have to charge you double. This shit ain't free nigga."

This is what I heard the other night when Big O was talking. This is what I hear whenever I hear any politrickster say anything that "concerns the American People."

"Give me my money."

But back to the subject......

Even though I thought the speech was bullshit;it still should have made major headlines. It still should have drowned out everything else....
This bullshit-ass shit about that crazy bytch Casey Anthony. It should have overshadowed the news about some Irish Gangsta getting caught after being on the run for the past 18 years. Bristol Palin's dumb ass 15 minutes of fame ass book should never have been talked about as well as Lindsey "I'm Lindsey Lohan Bitch" getting a pat on the hand again. Or Ron Pauls crazy ass talking about Fort Knox gold.

Our Involvement in Afghanistan should have been the major topic in US media outlets for the next week at least.
Sure it was covered and talked about..but it was treated as something that really does not matter at all.

Now all I am hearing, seeing and reading is bullshit ass talk that is as mind numbing as a blunt of that Chocolate Tye that is going around Oak Cliff right now.

Maybe that is a bad comparison..At least Chocolate Tye would be worth my 20 dollars.

Know thine Enemy so you can learn how to defeat them....

I try to keep an open mind about different stuff.
I try to understand why a person does whatever they do.
I try to put myself in the other persons shoes and try to see how they view the world.
I don't try to judge other people, but sometimes I fail miserably.

For example...

I have tried for about a month to listen to conservative talk radio whenever I am in my car. I wanted to see if I could try to understand the hate that most conservatives have towards our sitting President. I wanted to see if I could get a grip on all the negativity towards the way the country is being ran under the nations first African American President. I wanted to see if I could get some kind of mental picture of why they think the way they do.

I have failed.
I have tried to see their point of view and I cannot.
I don't understand it. I have tried and I cannot get it.

How can people that profess a strong believe in Christianity be so hateful and bigoted?
How can they spread shit that they know is nothing but lies and bullshit?

Like I said I have tried to listen to this bullshit for about a month and I can't do it anymore.
I am tired of getting mad and cussing at the radio for the mess they talk about.

Nothing they talk about is based on any facts. It is all baseless rhetoric. It is all opinion based bullshit.

I have heard some of the most outrageous and despicable stuff on conservative talk radio,that I am surprised that the FCC has not shut them down.
I have heard so much overtly racist bullshit that I am surprised that the NAACP, the Urban League, ACLU and all the other "equal" rights groups ain't staging daily protests in front of these studios.

But this is America. "Freedom of speech" and all.

I ain't mad at these racist, bigoted pea-sized braindead assholes for taking advantage of  their "god" giving right to say whatever the hell they feel like saying.
I just cannot and will not waste anymore of my braincells listening to their bullshit.

Keep your enemies close?
Why waste time on assholes that are predictable?

Stupid is the new straight A student

I have an idea about Sarah Palin that I wish to share with ya'll....

My Rethug buddy and I were talking about her last week at work. My buddy is one of the few Rethugs that cannot stand the woman. He says that he wishes that she would just go back to Alaska; count the money she has made over the past 2 years and keep her mouth closed. He says that she is a disgrace to the party he loves with her "folksy, mama bear" bullshit.

Well  I can't knock the dude for his opinion.

But my opinion is this...

Sarah Palin is not a stupid woman; no matter how dumb she sounds whenever she opens her mouth. It is practically guaranteed that when she opens her mouth, the sound-bites are going to end up on The Daily Show, Stephen Colbert, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimball and Comedy Central. I mean the chick should start her own stand-up routine she sounds so stupid. For instance....listen to her bullshit about how Paul Revere was warning the BRITISH instead of warning the colonists that the BRITISH were coming..

Really Sarah?

But having said that..I have to say this....

I think it is all an act. See, I think that this woman has realized the main factor in determining how successful a woman can be here in the "land of opportunity."

Most men have a problem with Brainy, independent, got her own shit-don't need mine type women.
Most of us are intimidated by a woman who is capable of running shit.
She always ends up being a bitch, bull-dyke, cunt and all the other derogatory terms we have for women in this society of ours.
Don't believe me?
Look at how Hillary Clinton, Oprah and Martha Stewart have been vilified and demeaned by the man controlled media. And those 3 are only the ones I can put a name to at the moment. There are thousands of other smart capable women; that let it be known that they are smart and capable; who do not get a chance to showcase their potential because weak  minded ass men feel like the bitches they are whenever they are in the same room with these women.

But on the other hand...

Dumb, needy insecure looking women are always depicted as being hot and desirable. (IE...Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Rhianna, Sarah Palin)...Men flock to these stupid looking women like they are dying of thirst and these women are the last cup of water for miles. These are the women that end up getting pushed to the front of the class, get their own reality shows and sign multi-million dollar modeling contracts.

Why you may ask?

We men do not feel intimidated by these women. We don't feel like our manhood will be threatened by being seen with women like this. We like to feel like we are the only light in a room of darkness; and these women let it be known that their light ain't shining at all.

Sarah Palin has figured this out.
So don't hate the playa people..This woman has figured out how to play. And she is playing it well..

There is no future in this world for a smart, independent, got her shit together woman.

At least not in the male dominated culture we live in.

Oh and fellas...I know that my man-card will be reevaluated after this is read though-out these here Internets,
but hey somebody has to tell it real at least once a year.

Oh and one more thing I need to clear up right now..

This is in no way an endorsement for Sarah Palin.. I cannot stand the woman. Every time I hear her damn voice, I have to run and grab an encyclopedia and just start reading that shit so I can replace the braincells I lost by listening to her brain dead ass bullshit. She is irritating as hell to me.

I just understand why she does what she does.
So I ain't mad at her...
Use what you got to get what you need Boo-Boo.
And if dumb ass men want to pay you millions of dollars to be the dumb blond, then Baby...bleach the shit out of your shit.

I'm just saying...
