And you know I could keep going...
Recently, I was in the library once again, and while I was between book racks, I overheard two white guys conversing.
I was poring over Randall Robinson's book 'Quitting america': A Black man's departure from his native land; and for the uninitiated, Randall founded the TransAfrica forum, which exposes the dastardly foreign political deeds of the western powers regarding their African agenda. He's also a Harvard Law graduate on top of his being a fine political activist and author.
I shamefully admit, I still haven't read Randall's classic book, 'The Debt': What america owes to Blacks, about mandating reparations for the diaspora; but I definitely will soon.
Anyway, one of these guys was saying, "...yeah, we were working on the project later than usual and decided to order in some pizza; we cut on the tube, and me, Bob and my friends wanted to watch 'The Walking Dead'. But all the Black guys wanted to watch the 'All Star Game'; and some how, we got outvoted. So we watched that insipid game all night."
Insipid game? Compared to what? An even more insipid fictional drama about some damn zombies?
I then thought about the proliferation of zombie and vampire flicks I've seen come to movie theaters, TV and even live theater in some cases.
It made me pose the question, why do white people obsess so much over zombies and vampires?
Do we really need a new zombie or vampire movie every year to keep these people's appetites sated?
Then it hit me...you know how whites always steal everything from Black people culturally? Like how we dance, sing, dress and talk. The reason they're so prone to doing that is, they don't have any kind of spiritual foundation to create anything cooler themselves.
This reminds me of Oprah's 'Legend's Ball' back in 2005; where she held a celebration of celebrity Black women and invited a gospel choir for the entertainment. Now, there were some white folks in the audience, as is mandatory for any Oprah gathering, but when BeBe Winans went into the audience and passed the mic to the likes of Shirley Cesar and Patti Labelle, they started taking the audience spiritually higher; and white folks were wondering what was going on. 'Cause their pale skin is not only devoid of melanin, but it causes them to only reach the very lowest of spiritual levels.
Whitey got shook, 'cause we were taking them places they couldn't go.
This also reminds me of a white guy I know who swears up and down that Eddie Van Halen is the greatest guitarist who ever lived (If you don't know who he is, google him). Now, I know Eddie's no slouch, but when I mention Jimi Hendrix to this guy, he automatically says, "...oh yeah, well, he was very innovative, but I think Eddie had more technique...and he outlived Jimi by decades."
Firstly, Eddie is a virtuoso guitar player, and his techniques are and were very revolutionary; but anyone studying guitar over the course of years could very well pick up his techniques if they really tried.
Jimi's techniques for his creative use of the guitar's 'feedback', has everyone to this day shaking their heads, like, how'd he get those sounds out of the guitar? And what white people can't fathom, is Jimi was infusing his 'spirituality' into his guitar playing; i.e. his intrinsic knowledge of our people's Black spiritual sciences...and that's something you can't teach.
"Well I stand up next to a mountain, and chop it down with the edge of my hand...'cause I'm a VOODOO CHILD..."
As for Eddie outliving Jimi, the white guy probably doesn't know, or wouldn't believe, that Jimi Hendrix was murdered.
Moreover, Jimi's white manager had a hand in his murder.
So, it's now crystal clear to me why whites love zombies and vampires so much; its 'cause these lukewarm-fleshed, spiritually vacant and highly homicidal creatures, remind them of themselves.
And we as Black people need to remind ourselves that this is who they truly are; and this is why they're incapable of doing anything but causing destruction wherever they go.
And for the people saying not ALL whites are like that...I didn't say ALL OF THEM WERE.
I'm just relating to you how 99.9% of them are.
And if you don't believe me, hang around them for a couple of days, months or years...eventually, they'll show you their real selves.
And no Black person should be shocked by what they find.
For those of you who thought I forgot to mention Wesley Snipes in the movie 'Blade'; I haven't. I didn't include that here because after 'Blade' was successful, white executives sabotaged the film by giving more face time to Wesley's white co-stars in the sequels. So much so, he sued them for that and for wages he was owed and never received.
If you'd like to read more about that, you can see this Blog's short bio on Wesley Snipes here.
Here's the vid for the Oprah's Legends Ball 2005, where she had whitey shook over where our melanated minds could take us spiritually.
Note how Maria Shriver (white woman at the beginning of the video with her daughters), says when the singers started passing the mic around, "I hope they don't come near us."
This is nothing less than our people's 'spiritual ingenuity' at work...
