"Give me a child 'til the age of seven and we'll show you the man."
Chances are, if you've ever driven or walked through a predominately African-American neighborhood, you've noticed a church and a liquor store on every corner. I'd venture to say, you probably encountered more churches than liquor stores. What message does this send to this neighborhood's residents and everyone else passing through these areas? Well, here's my take on it...
Any Black person can attest to the fact of being force fed the doctrines of Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesus Christ (or some other version of Christianity: Seventh Day Adventist, Jehovah's Witness, Baptist, Methodist, etc.) ad nauseum in their formative years. And there's a very distinct reason why our areas are targeted with these two philosophies.
Firstly, the tale of Martin Luther King goes pretty much like this: Uber-pacifist and baptist preacher King, revolutionized the Black Human Rights movement (wrongly termed the Civil Rights movement; we weren't fighting for the right to be civil) by telling our people it's better to overcome whites with our capacity to love, than to physically or economically fight back against nationalized, institutional white bigotry. So while he and other Black people got their heads beat in by mobs of white bigots, they continuously pray for their oppressors while being preyed upon. This comes back to the passages in the the bible saying: Love your enemy and pray for those who use you spitefully. What King never realized was the bible was written by our oppressors. So after integrating Blacks into handing their monies over to white institutions (which was the real agenda of integration--if you disagree, you're just in denial...do the research), the story ends with the pacifist, non-violent King, dying violently. The End.
Now, let's look directly at religion's role in this equation. Before I say anything directly about religion though, I'd like to just display some passages from the bible. Check these out:
Ephesians, Chapter 6:5:
Slaves, you must obey your earthly masters. Show them great respect and be as loyal to them as you are to christ.
Ephesians, Chapter 6:6:
Try to please them at all times, and not just when you think they are watching. You are SLAVES OF CHRIST (!?), so with your whole heart you must do what god wants you to do.
Gladly serve your master as though they were the lord himself, AND NOT SIMPLY PEOPLE.
You know that you will be rewarded for any good things you do, WHETHER YOU ARE SLAVES OR FREE.
I think these passages are pretty self-explanatory. When I first stumbled upon these verses, my jaw dropped.
This basically is the agenda of christianity in ALL its forms. The white elite wanna' keep us in a paradigm of being sheep led to slaughter, while we continuously forgive them for all the atrocities they levy on our people. And we continue to go for it. I recently read another blog on this website where a Black man was talking about all the self-hatred in the Black diaspora; even though I'm glad he tackled the subject, he tempered his argument by saying, "...we (Black people) are 'GOD'S PROPERTY', so we shouldn't feel inferior to anyone." Even when we try to break out of the 'ole negro programming, it's still lurking in our subconscious and holding us hostage to the white supremacist trick bag of religion. I must say though, more and more Blacks of and in the diaspora are waking up to the sham of christian dogmas. So what's the church's remedy for this? Other religions. I can't tell you the number of times I've watched popular youth-oriented shows to find buddhist statues in the background of almost every shot in the TV program. (Check it--TV 'PROGRAM') The same themes of 'forgiveness' run through buddhist dogmas which is why the white elite are giving us mega-doses of it on TV. Every time I see a black celebrity on TV, they're wearing black buddhist beads on their wrist...check it out, next time you tune in.
And the Black churches are filled with a predominance of black women. The majority of them single. Because, whether they or the church want to acknowledge it, the message they get and give every Sunday is: EVERYTHING NEGATIVE IS MASCULINE AND EVERYTHING POSITIVE IS FEMININE. Again, don't take my word for it...do the research.
Notice america's status quo always puts a negative spin on the Black spiritual sciences though; sciences like Voudun (Voodoo) and The Orishas. I've NEVER seen a hollywood film portraying the sciences of Voodoo in a positive light. If you can find or think of one, please let me know. That's because our Haitian ancestors used these spiritual sciences to free themselves from white oppressors. (Look up the Haitian Revolution). And also note, the Haitian Revolution to this day, is the only one with a claim of being the world's only successful slave revolt.
So I've said all that to say this, the ultimate message behind the life of Martin Luther King jr., and having churches and liquor stores on every corner of Black neighborhoods is...WE WANT YOU TO BE INEBRIATED, SEMI-CONSCIOUS PACIFISTS, WHO DIE YOUNG AND VIOLENTLY. If you don't see this, again, you're just in denial. And again, don't take my word for it...do the research!
'til next time,
Ma'at Hotep (Peace and Justice)
I'd be remiss if I didn't shout out the Gnostic/demi-Netjer LLO525STAR for introducing me to these bible verses and so much more info. I might have not found elsewhere! You can see his YouTube video that first introduced me to these verses and the aesthetic of white supremacist religious trick bags here.

Absurd celebrations of the alpha white male (Part 1)…Tom Cruise, The Last Samurai, and asian amnesia…
In 2006, Japan’s Memorial Day Association declared October 6th ‘Tom Cruise Day’; supposedly ‘cause he’s been the highest profiled american actor who’s made the most trips to the island nation.
Another reason he’s so beloved in Japan is because of the film ‘The Last Samurai’, which has been playing on a continuous loop for the past week on the american movie classics network (AMC).
For those of you who’ve never seen this flick before; albeit I couldn’t imagine there’s a soul in america who hasn’t, I’ll give you a rough synopsis of the movie’s plot: Cruise plays Captain Nat Algren; he’s a military advisor who’s hired to defeat a group of Samurai warriors so he and his cohorts can make way for the latest phase of western ‘manifest destiny’; read: genocidal occupation. After losing the battle and being captured by the Samurai, he becomes enamored with their culture and joins them. At the final battle all the Samurai warriors lose their lives defending their homeland/culture except Tom; thus, making him…the white guy, the LAST SAMURAI.*yawn*
Don’t get me wrong, this movie has several redeeming qualities. A well-written script, lovely cinematography, and some of the best choreographed fight sequences in film, period. (Namely, the ninja attack on Katsumoto’s village) Problem is, how do hollywood and the japanese people reconcile calling some white guy the last samurai? And moreover, why do the japanese feel Tom deserves his own ‘day’?
Let’s take a little stroll back down memory lane, shall we?…After the December 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor, japanese americans were thrown into ‘internment/concentration camps’ in the good ‘ole U.S. of A. Let me put this another way, some 113,000 japanese people in this country, who had nothing to do with this bombing, were rounded up and incarcerated unjustly. But they’re giving an ‘american’ actor his own day in japan? Talk about a selective memory.
Let’s take one more stroll down this lane…in 1945, the japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were decimated by american atom bombs. Mind you, america is the ONLY country in the world to use nuclear weapons in any war—bar none—twice! Tom Cruise day in japan!? *shaking my head*
Is it me, or are people of color MUCH TOO forgiving of western whites? Everyday I see instances where Black and brown people extol the virtues of the 'scrupulous' and 'morally-high grounded' caucasian; and all I can do is shake my head. And we ALL do it; Africans of the diaspora, latinos, and all varieties of asians have these same bouts of historical amnesia.
Recently, I was on YouTube, and this person who identified themselves as ‘native american’ went on a rant that slandered Black people while talking about how ethical whites are. What?! Now, I don’t know if he was in fact a ‘native american’, but he seemed to press the issue and gave out info. on which tribe he was descended from, so I took him at his word. After I heard his bogus arguments, I asked him how he could talk about the virtuous nature of whites after what they did to his people, IN THIS COUNTRY! He responded by saying his people don’t pay any federal taxes and native american owned casinos were making them rich. I responded by saying, okay, you don’t pay any federal taxes…bravo! But you’re ‘native’ to this country, right? So why are you and yours paying ANY TAXES? As a ‘native’ person, you should be exempted from this nonsense. Then I said, it’s cool that your casinos are making you rich…but are at least HALF OF YOUR PEOPLE RICH BEHIND OWNING CASINOS? Are you personally rich? What he should or doesn’t know is, a large percentage of his people are STILL living on reservations. I remember seeing a news documentary about a native woman living on a reservation in Arizona; she didn’t even have running water in her home. This was in 2013! When the first whites washed up on these shores sick and starving, the 'native' americans fed them and nursed them back to health; and what did these virtuous whites do? They KILLED THESE NATIVES! That says to me, you’ve got to be one prideless idiot to praise the people that nearly wiped you and yours out. Also, it's documented that Black people occupied this country before and during the time 'native' americans were the majority population of this country. So 'native american indians' don't have a monopoly on this term...at least where Black people are concerned.
So I’ve said all that to say this; if you’re a person of color who’s in a heated debate about how white people are so much more scrupulous than Black or brown people, hopefully, your melanated mind will slap you in the back of the head and re-mind you of how dastardly these people, white people, have proven themselves to be time and time again.
Let’s get our right minds back and stop being amnesiacs!!

When you think of ‘illegal substances’, what immediately comes to mind?
Probably narcotics like powdered cocaine or heroin…or possibly fields of ‘poppy’ plants swaying in a south asian breeze.
How about charcoal? And when I say charcoal, I’m not referencing some new vernacular for the latest designer ‘club’ drug; I’m talking about everyday, garden variety, let’s barbeque some burgers, charcoal.
Well, in Somalia, Africa charcoal has been turned into an illegal substance. Why? Well according to the United Nations Security Council and one of it’s ‘resolutions’ (Resolution 2036 to be exact), garden variety charcoal is almost solely responsible for funding ‘Al Shabab militant terrorists’. But let’s look at this case a little more closely.
Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen (or Al Shabab) is the Somali based cell of the Islamist militant group Al Qaeda. This group is an off-shoot of the Islamic Courts Union who suffered a defeat in 2006 by Somalia’s ‘Transitional Federal Government’. But to really find this group’s genesis, let’s look a little closer to home.
Here’s a quote made by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on October 7th, 2009:
“It seemed like a great idea, back in the 1980’s—to embolden—and train and equip—Taliban, mujahedin, and jihadists against the Soviet Union, which had invaded Afghanistan. And with our help, and with the Pakistani support—this group—including, at that time, Bin Laden, defeated the Soviet Union.”
Now if that isn’t clear enough, let’s make it a little more plain; Al Qaeda and the Taliban were created and funded by the american CIA to thwart the communist occupations of Pakistan and Afghanistan. And these ‘Al Shabab militants’ are said to have direct ties to Al Qaeda fundamentalists. So if the justification for sanctions on Somali charcoal is the funding of terrorists with links to Al Qaeda, guess who’s responsible for Al Shabab's rise? You got it, the good ‘ole U.S. of A.
There’s also an environmentalist ‘spin’ on the U.N.’s argument for the charcoal sanction. U.N. officials say charcoal production exacerbates desertification and deforestation in Somalia where droughts claim the lives of 29,000 children under the age of five. So let’s break down this debate. I have found no other continent where charcoal trading is illegal except Africa. And if I’m wrong, I’d love to hear your feedback correcting me. And NO African country is at the very top of the deforestation list…Somalia isn’t even on the top ten of this list. Now, when it comes to drought, you mean to tell me technology exists to send glorified dune-buggys to Mars, but we can’t take the salt out of sea water for human consumption and fly it where it’s needed?
These arguments are completely BOGUS!!
Wanna’ know why this sanction is really being levied against Somalia…and the Congo? It’s because Black Africans were beginning to make money trading charcoal; they were beginning to become financially stable, and if that continued to happen, the western powers wouldn't be able to exploit Africa's natural resources as freely. Africa has the richest repository of mineral resources in the free world. Especially when you’re talking about the Congo. The western powers have no interest in Africans empowering themselves, so the countries therein MUST be continuously destabilized by europe, the u.s., and israel. Point blank, period.
I remember a couple of years back looking at video footage of Black Africans gleefully carrying huge bails of charcoal to a collection site. I could see in their eyes they were going to use this resource to feed themselves and their families and become upwardly mobile; so when the western powers got wind of this, they had to shut them down. The African honey pot is just too sweet to be left to its rightful owners.
It’s the same soup reheated people. When you want another country’s resources, you declare them terrorists, or better yet, you create a terrorist faction in their country, then you occupy…I mean, liberate that country for the good name of the western powers. And you also liberate the country of it’s resources while your at it.
So the next time you see some insipid depiction of Somali pirates like in the first part of the movie ‘The Expendables’, know these people have tried all the ‘legal’ methods to make a living; it’s the savage europeans who’ve made them resort to such extreme violence.
Michelle A. Rhee is an american educator who was the former chancellor of Washington D.C.’s public schools. Her academic pedigree looks like this: Michelle graduated from Cornell University with a B.A. in government. She also received a Masters in public policy from Harvard’s prestigious John F. Kennedy school of government.
Shortly after these accomplishments, she was assigned to under-performing schools in Baltimore, Maryland; then she went to Harlem, New York’s Park Elementary school.
Now Michelle fancied herself, or was sold to the public as a bit of a revolutionary. She was the face of over-achievement and higher standards for all students, and she was going to single-handedly reform the D.C. schools and the swarthy populous that attended them. At least again, this was the bill of goods sold to the public.
Unable to bridge the cultural gaps between her and her students, Michelle said the pressures of teaching those first years made her literally break out in hives. One method she thought might work to control a group of students, was putting masking tape on their mouths so they could be quiet on their way to the lunch room. As she peeled the pieces of tape off these eight year olds, they began crying out in pain. At one point Michelle says she had “Thirty-five kids who were crying.” So much for the Harvard education.
After this fiasco, she took a teaching course and got her official teacher’s certification. She then returned to Harlem’s Park Elementary. The grades of students in Rhee’s class dropped significantly after her return. Average math percentiles fell from 64% to 17%; while the reading scores dropped from 37% to 21%.
In her second and third years of teaching, Rhee’s students made a slight improvement in overall test scores, but those scores were contested by a retired math teacher as being less than half of what she originally stated.
In 1997 Rhee founded ‘The New Teacher Project’ that supplied the D.C. area with 23,000 mid-career professionals wanting to be teachers. It was instrumental in re-designing the D.C. schools recruitment and hiring process.
After this, Rhee was offered the chancellor’s job for the D.C.’s school districts. Mind you, she had no experience running a school system and was never even a principal. Other teachers and education officials thought there were more qualified people for the job.
Rhee inherited a failing school system where students were performing below the averages of state standardized tests. So what did Rhee do? She closed 23 schools, fired 36 principals, and cut 121 office jobs. Way to go! When asked why she made these cuts, the stated reasons were under-enrollment and various school complex’s ‘excessive square footage’. What?
Rhee also renegotiated teacher’s salaries saying they’d have a chance to make upwards of $140,000 a year, provided they met her requirements for ‘student achievement’. You know…the kind she failed to produce in her classrooms. The biggest caveat would be these teachers loss of tenure rights or their smaller pay raises with tenure rights retained.
After the contracts were finalized, Rhee fired 241 teachers and put 737 more school employees on notice for termination.
Now I’ve said all that to say this; Rhee had no intentions of helping these failing schools. She was sent to eviscerate them.
There’s been wide spread criticism of her actions, and rightfully so. But americans need to wake up to a reality that many of us don’t want to face. America has always loved cheap labor. So there must always be a ready-made segment of this country to fill that void. And guess where they’re slated to come from…you got it, poor neighborhoods and under-performing schools. That’s the reason these schools stay over-crowded and under-funded. For this country to be ‘one of the richest’ in the world, our oligarchs feel that not everyone should have access to a quality education; these people NEED to be exploitable. And like Sam Jackson said in ‘Do the right thing’…that’s the truth, Ruth.
Now, while looking up this woman’s history I found an interesting stat; it said that D.C. schools were performing poorly despite having the advantage of the third highest rates of spending per student in the U.S. This stat was provided by Reuters on May 24th, 2007. It also stated that D.C. spends $8,701 per student on average. Here’s the problem, there’s no break down on how much of that goes to ‘urban’ and ‘suburban’ schools.
One stat I looked up said on average in N.Y.C., which has the largest urban public school system in this country, operating expenses per student were $4,351. Which is $1-$2,000 less than its ‘suburban’ counter-parts; like Westchester which spends $6,605, Nassau county which spends $6,539, Rockland county which spends $6,189, and Suffolk county which spends $5,852.
Now which students, urban or suburban, do you think this government’s slated for its ‘cheap labor’ work force?
Firstly, let me start off my post with this preamble:
I in no way endorse or encourage the physical, verbal, or mental abuse of any person because of their ethnicity, cultural background or sexual orientation.This post is in no way seeking to initiate any such actions towards anyone. I believe every person’s human right is to live freely and without harm coming to them because of their beliefs; however radical, as long as they don’t cause harm to another human being.
With that said, I’d like to appeal to all Black people who are not anglophiles or brain-washed drones of the western world’s white supremacist system.
The other day I watched Will Smith and his son on the Ellen show. They came out to thunderous applause and both ran up and down the aisle between Ellen’s studio audience, high-fiving several people as they went. When they got to actually sit down for the interview, Will went into his spiel about how he kisses his son on the mouth and what a ‘natural’ way this is for any man to show affection to and for his son. Then he began promoting his new film ‘After Earth’ which is yet another flick about this world in its post-apocalyptic phases. Kinda’ like ‘I am legend’.
Hmmm…seems like Black people are constantly getting those twin themes from Will’s flicks. Human extinction and homosexuality (check out Will in ‘Six degrees of separation’). The real reason Will became a ‘Scientologist’ (Note Scientology was founded by L. Ron Hubbard, a notorious bigot), and why he’s pushing the same aforementioned messages in his films, is due to his working with white supremacists who guide his career choices. And they are trying to get Black men especially to adopt and adapt to the homosexual lifestyle with a passion.
I know the ‘PC’ thing to do is say, that’s okay…after all, it’s just entertainment. But nothing could be farther from the truth! So without further ado, here’s my top 3 reasons why any sane Black person…and especially Black men, should resoundly REJECT homosexuality:
Number 3: Homosexuality is the result of a childhood trauma…NO ONE IS BORN THAT WAY!
Every time I bring this up, there’s a guaranteed knee-jerked reaction from people as they tell me, “That’s not the truth!” If you look into the history of any homosexual person, what you will find is the overwhelming majority of them come from unstable and abusive households. And the abuse they suffer at the hands of parents, other family members, friends of their family or strangers outside their homes is what makes these people sexually conflicted. I can hear you guys saying, c’mon that’s bogus. But don’t take my word for it…do the research. I’ve had instances when I’ve shared this with two gay men, and both of them said that wasn’t the truth. But after talking for a couple of more minutes they both confessed to me that they were molested by someone in their youth.
As a younger man I would always wonder why some of the best looking men were gay. I would think, they could have any woman they want. What I later realized was exceptionally good looking young boys are PRIME targets for pedophiles; that’s why so many male models are gay. I also realized the reason gays tend to be so exceptionally smart is because their home’s living conditions were often so volatile that they had to think on their feet at a very young age to survive their home's traumatic environment. They had to exercise their mental muscles at a lot younger age than people who lived in placid, stable two parent households and this manifests in their being exceptionally bright later on in life.
Number 2: Homosexuality is being used as a covert means of population control in the Black diaspora.
“We don’t want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
—Margaret Sanger, the creator of Planned Parenthood.
After the contraceptive ‘pill’ was made available to the public, Margaret Sanger opened one of the first ‘birth control’ clinics in Harlem, New York. She also hired an all Black female staff, so Black women would feel more comfortable trying this pill. But this proved to be a much too overt operation to bring about her goals. Flash forward to the present day, Jason Collins is on the cover of Sports Illustrated as the first professional basketball player to profess that he’s openly gay. See the connection?
One of the reasons I wrote this post is because of how hard they’re pushing homosexuality’s mainstreaming on Black men. Because they know we set the cultural trends. They also know if we ‘openly’ accept this lifestyle as normal, every other ethnic group, consciously or subconsciously, will adopt this lifestyle as ‘cool’. It’s the same reason Kanye West is wearing a damn dress…the pansy.
On top of this, white elitist men know that Black men have the genetic ability to literally breed them out of existence. This is THE biggest reason they would have Black men adopting the gay lifestyle. Wonder why america concentrates ALL of its law enforcement in Black communities? It’s got nothing to do with stopping crime. It’s really an attempt to get all free Black men behind bars so they can’t mate with Black women. And if they’re there long enough, hopefully, they too can adopt the gay lifestyle that’s so pervasive in prisons.
And the Number 1 reason is: Some of america’s biggest bigots are gay white men.
I can really hear you guys moaning behind this statement. You’re probably like, c’mon…white gay men are some of the most liberal in the world. Really?
I remember hearing the Black female comedian Sheryl Underwood, ya’ know, the one who co-hosts the women’s TV show ‘The Talk’...saying that one evening she went to a gay club, and one of the white male patrons there called her a ‘porch monkey’. Beyond this, what's even more shameful is I heard Sheryl declare that she won’t date a man unless he knows who ‘Shelly Fabares’ is. That’s the woman who played Donna Reed’s oldest child on the Donna Reed show for the aspiring anglophiles out there. And she probably wonders why she’s still oversexed and unmarried...or why there's not a line of white male suitors beating a path to her door. Sad.
Beyond this example, I remember watching a group of gay white men picket in front of a blood bank in dire need of donors; this circle of white gay men chanted, “No black blood…no black blood.” Still think these people are your friends? Welp, here’s one more example, I worked around a gay white man who took pleasure in reading aloud complaints that were sent to my department, this was until I gave that pansy a good talking to. This man did everything he could to get me fired, and he even tried to tell me that only my people use ethnic slurs as endearments…after I called him a bigot, he quietly walked off.
So if you’re a Black person reading this, especially if you’re a Black man, know this lifestyle is being pushed on you to make it ‘popular’. The white elites figure that the final nod of approval this lifestyle needs is an endorsement by us. Especially when it comes to the Hip-Hop community.
So when you see ads for gay pride parades, or any medium of entertainment that extols this lifestyle…JUST SAY NO…HOMO!
Addendum: YouTube's King Lo the Rastar has done an excellent video thesis on the mainstreaming of homosexuality; he's named this series of vids 'The "F" bomb'; you can see it on his YouTube channel here.
Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Several minutes later, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 143 points.
This in itself isn’t shocking considering the information sent via Twitter by the Associated Press, but there was one small problem…the ‘tweet’ was fake.
So after organizations like the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) and the CFTC (Commodities and Futures Trading Commission) supposedly mandated new financial regulations to thwart another financial crisis, what happens? The financial markets are nearly destroyed by a bogus, errant ‘tweet’.
What’s wrong with this picture people?
That same Tuesday by 1:18 p.m., after said tweet was deemed fake by the Associated Press, the stock markets rebounded and gained back its losses. Mind you, that fake tweet wiped out 136.5 billion dollars of the S&P 500’s index value.Yep…that’s billion with a ‘b’.
Talk about truth being stranger than fiction.
But wait, it gets worse; the reason the stock market crashed so suddenly, isn’t only because no one checked the veracity of said tweet, it’s because the problem wasn’t entirely caused by ‘people’. The market crashed behind ‘AUTOMATED’ trades as well. Yep, you read that right; nearly HALF these trades were made solely by computers.
High Frequency Trading (HFT) is a new-fangled method of stock trades that take flesh and blood humans out of the mix so these transactions can literally happen in seconds. HFT is wholly comprised of computer algorithms that not only follow the markets looking for ‘key words’ to follow trends, but these programs actually buy and sell stocks too. So there’s literally no one ‘minding the store’ as far as these trades go. On top of that, HFT computers are programmed to make ‘illegitimate trades’ to fool or sabotage other HFT computers into thinking certain trends are happening when they’re not. This is to cut down on the competition when other HFT-driven firms might take a piece of their action. If it sounds scary, that’s ‘cause it is. And to think, people have their life savings in the hands of these purposely corrupted computer programs.
Just when you thought ‘exotic financial instruments’ like the credit default swap were being tamed by the bureaucrats who run these markets, we’re finding out the financial industry’s ‘crap shoot’ stylings are alive and well. But in the case of HFT, you can skip the ‘alive’ part.
So what’s it gonna’ take to stop these corrupted computings? Hows about consumers who have money invested with these HFT firms pulling their capital out. Or swearing at your local politician in a Town Hall meeting to let them know the proletariat are done taking this corporate tomfoolery!
Until then, it’ll be more of the same casino-like behavior from the Wall Street bunch. But ultimately, they couldn’t do it unless we let them. So it’s time to get organized and get some results. And the sooner, the better.
