"...when the man runs his game, lord knows he sure runs it mean..."
--lyric from Melvin Van Peebles stage play, 'Ain't suppose to die a natural death'.
A couple of years ago, I was watching BET's 'Comic View', and there was a popular comedian named Earthquake who was doing his thing on stage.
Now, Earthquake had a very 'down-home' type of delivery, which was part of his charm; and being that he was a mature Black man, I guess he was representing his southern roots.
But on this episode, he said if he met god, he'd ask him one question: what did the first brotha do to make life so hard on Black men?
Now, at the time I kind of laughed this joke off, but then I started to ponder the question. And even then, it surprised me that this mature Black man, and Black men in general, didn't know and thoroughly understand the answer.
Now, if you're a Black christian, you should be very familiar with the 'curse of Ham'. The Book of Genesis records an instance of Noah cursing his son Ham's descendants to be slaves. Although there is no biblical evidence that Ham was the father of African peoples, various Jewish, Christian and Islamic writers came to believe that he was, and their association helped to justify centuries of African enslavement.
This is why I don't subscribe to white supremacist religions of any sort. Mind you, ALL religions were created by white supremacists as a means of keeping global Black populations under their control.
Even the 'book of mormon' says in 'Nephi 5:21' that: "...as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people, the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them." They're talking about Black people in this passage folks. So as you can see, mormons are notorious bigots.
And being that white elites keep us mired in religion, and in the paradigm of bowing and begging, we're kept out of our spiritual sciences like the 'Orishas' and 'Voudun', which is where the real power to effect change lies.
But the basic function of religion, especially pertaining to Black folks, is to internalize some sense that you as a Black person, are inherently wrong. Now combine this with the white supremacist education we receive, and you almost can't help being a self-hating 'hue-man'.
Beyond that, the real reason we're so subjugated and reviled, especially when it comes to Black men is this...
BLACK MEN LITERALLY HAVE THE GENETIC POWER TO BREED WHITE PEOPLE OUT OF EXISTENCE.
Coincidentally, this is why Black men have the stereotype of having big phallus'. It has nothing to do with physical penis size, it has to do with genetic power over recessive-traited people. We can literally breed any ethnic group out of existence 'cause we can create any other kind of man, but none of them can create one of us. So as Chuck D (Public Enemy) stated, we are Public Enemy # 1 to the white elite.
Black people, and Black americans especially, forget that white people are the world's MINORITY. Three quarters of this earth's population is Black and brown. Meaning that white people always have to be conscious of population numbers and populus stat breakdowns.
You must have noticed how every TV commercial you see lately has a black woman paired with a white man, or a Black man paired with a white woman (Cheerios commercial). This is because the white elite need to keep us separated so we don't produce any pure bred Black boys that will turn into genetically-dominate Black men.
And with white birth rates falling below replacement levels, the white elite are scrambling to find ways for white couples to have as many kids as possible. Why do you think white male politicians are damn near outlawing abortions. It's so their women can keep all those white children.
The MTV show '16 and pregnant' was created to make pregnancy for young white girls 'cooler', so they'll be inclined to have more children. There's actually an article on young white girls getting pregnant so they can be on the show.
And this speaks directly to what I call the 'Zero-sum' game of the white elites. And the phrase 'Zero-sum' is talking about white people's need to win at all costs. There is no room for Black people to win with them because we have the ability to wipe them out.
In terms of this 'game'...for white people, failure is not an option.
Thus the reason why white elites use genocides, germ and chemical warfare, disease manufacturing, induction of global famine and drought situations, creation of civil and tribal wars, etc. to achieve this goal.
They will and are doing anything they can to win this game; 'cause if they don't, they die. Period.
And the Black man's genetic power to wipe them out, is his 'original sin' (where have we heard that before?).
So for 'Earthquake' and every other Black man wondering why white supremacists lock us in prisons as much as they do, or keep us hating ourselves as much as we do, here's your answer.
And now that we have this question answered, it's time to take back what's rightfully ours; our black woman and our Black communities.
So let's get to work.
The first line in this post is again, from Melvin Van Peebles' stage play 'Ain't suppose to die a natural death'; and here's a clip of this play from the 1972 Tony Awards TV broadcast. Check out a young Garret Morris before he went on the first incarnation of 'Saturday Night Live'. In this montage, we see the results of white supremacist gestapo-like police officers, and how they operate in our communities; in keeping with the agenda of the 'Zero-sum' game.
