Why do Haitians, Jamaicans and Black Africans, own retail stores in america quicker than Black americans?
In the past few years, I've noticed how Black Africans, Jamaicans and Haitians, have waxed philosophic about how Black americans are the dumbest of our diaspora.
This always struck me as odd 'cause I hear them saying this, but when Barack Obama was elected president, I distinctly remember how a Jamaican co-worker of mine marked his calender with that date, saying it was 'history'. I also remember how many groups of Black Africans were literally celebrating in the streets back in the motherland, feeling it was their victory too.
And it never fails that when I remind people about Barack Obama's american presidency, how some Black person will ultimately say, well...he's not really Black. Well, consider this, the day Obama was elected, a white supremacist website, 'Stormfront', crashed due to all the traffic coming through it. A week after he was elected, 'teabaggers' rallied with high powered rifles slung over their shoulders just miles away from the white house. These same teabaggers, held picket signs saying Obama's plan was 'white slavery'; as if that's any different from Black slavery...you shallow caucasians. That and the fact that this president has gotten more hate mail than any other in history, tells me Barack is Black...whether he wants to be or not!
Anyway, when I was younger, there was a long avenue filled with retail stores several blocks from my house; and at one time, the owners of a good many of these convenience stores, were Jamaican and Haitian, and there might have been one Black African owned store as well. But, I didn't see one of these stores owned by a Black american. When I was older, I wondered why this was. And I hear the sentiments of these groups saying they come to america and pass Black americans by in terms of achievement all the time. Even though, like I said earlier, we do have a Black president in this country.
A couple of years after pondering this, due to my old neighborhood being gentrified, all the retail stores that were owned by Haitians, Jamaicans and Africans, are now owned by spanish and asian people; and again, Black americans couldn't seem to own one of these stores. And once more, the reason why alluded me. But being a little older, and a little more 'conscious', I found out the reason, and here it is...
I know I keep referring to the 'Black Wall Street' in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but this area represented Black americans doing everything right, as opposed to what we're doing today. In this area, we owned literally several hundred businesses, like restaurants, grocery stores, and like it says in the picture above, even a bus system; we created a thriving economy that rivaled whitey's...and mind you, this was in the early 1900's...POST-SLAVERY!
And again, it was so successful, that whitey bombed this area in 1921.
I'm reminding you of that to say this, the reason whitey will allow Haitians, Jamaicans and Black Africans to operate a business like a retail store before Black americans, is 'cause BLACK AMERICANS WERE THE ONLY GROUP OF BLACK PEOPLE WHO SHOWED WHITEY, ESPECIALLY IN AMERICA, THAT WE COULD BUILD AN ECONOMY THAT RIVALED OR POSSIBLY EVEN THREATENED TO TAKE OVER THEIR OWN!
And I'm saying this to illustrate the fact that, for the most part, Black Haitians, have been poor for centuries and are still poor, Black Jamaicans, have been poor for centuries and are still poor; and the overwhelming majority of Black Africans, have been poor for centuries...and are still poor. Beyond this, these groups come to america looking down on Black americans and treating white people like their gods! A lot of them don't realize how white fascists have made them so destitute in their native countries, that they had to leave just to make a living...that's why they're in america.
Now, with that stated, what I'm not saying is Black americans are better than these groups, 'cause we got tricked out of our economic power base(s) in this country to follow the agenda of 'integration'...and we've been beggin' ever since!
What I am saying is, Black americans and every other kind of Black person, needs to realize what we do have in common; and that's two things...one, we're all now dependent on white fascists for our food, clothing and shelter; and two, we've all been conditioned to hate ourselves and each other.
Ya' gotta' love these inbreds!
And once again, for any person saying I'm just telling people to hate whites, I'm saying that's a crock! My message is, let's get rid of the self-hatred whites have bred into us for decades, so we can work together.
Now, whitey will always tell us one of these groups is better than the other, this way they're always assured we have no unity...and ultimately, that's how they stay in power. If Black Haitians hate Black americans, and Black Jamaicans hate Black americans, and Black americans hate Black Africans, whitey sits back and laughs at us, 'cause he knows 'Willie Lynch' was right. I've actually seen Black americans spit at Black Africans who were working in a convenience store, 'cause they weren't 'one of us'. That's lunacy.
So, what's the solution?
Again, getting rid of our collective self-hatred, is the answer to all our problems!
And once again, I'm suggesting we do this with meditative techniques at the subconscious level, but in order to even get that far, we need to realize 'consciously' how we've been conditioned to hate ourselves more than any other kind of person on the planet for nearly two decades in our collective school systems...wherever we're located!
And we need to realize the conditioning we got to hate ourselves, is ten times worse than any other ethnic group gets in the world!
I mean, could you imagine if Black Haitians, Jamaicans, Africans and americans worked together? We'd all be rich!
The main tenet of white supremacy is every single Black person must feel like they're the worst kind of person walking the face of the earth...that's the game.
Now, in order to get rid of our self-hatred, there are a few methods that will work, but one that ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT!
And, I'll share that method with you in my next post. So stay tuned...

Here's a short video featuring 'the Teacha' KRS-ONE; this is a minute dissertation on the methods of white supremacy, but it's POWERFUL! And it speaks directly to what happened to the Black Diaspora, especially here in america.

Melissa Ortiz and (Uncle) Tommy Sotomayor ask 'why are Black women so argumentative?'...Here's the answer...(Remix)
"Man, God didn't give us nothin'...he gave us big lips and nappy hair..."
-- quote from a young Black women to me about her views on Black people's looks.
About a year ago, I came across a YouTube video of a woman named Melissa Ortiz titled, 'Why are Black women so argumentative'. Now, I'll readily admit, this vid pissed me off to no end, not only because I've seen Ms. Ortiz's antics involving the dissing of Black women in the past, but I know that Ms. Ortiz is a spanish woman pretending to be Black, so she can have an easier time dissing Black women.
Now, if you've been following this Blog at all for a couple of months, I guess you know by now that I'm not a fan of (Uncle) Tommy Sotomayor's; but he posed this question a lot himself, and since he's what I call a 'white supremacist simp' he's used his self-hating diatribes to rationalize why Black women are predisposed to being bitter. So, I'd like to answer this question in hopes that it gives some insight into the disposition of the Black women society calls 'argumentative'.
First off, I'd like to state that Tommy, Melissa and the general public's notion that all Black women are argumentative and abrasive is A LIE!
If you do happen across one Black woman with an attitude, this post will expound on the reasons she might have for being that way, but ultimately, casting aspersion on the whole of Black women, is another technique used by (Uncle) Tommy and Melissa to slander the image of every Black woman.
Now, let's deal with the quote below my pictured header; this was a statement made to me by a young Black woman when I was in high school. So, for anyone wanting an insight into why Black women might be argumentative, take a hard look at this quote.
This young woman said, "GOD didn't give us (Black people) anything..." So what is that implying? It's saying that everything about Black people is wrong; it speaks to her being made to feel that our very existence on this earth is a mistake. That her very God has cast us out of his/her favor. Now, do you think she was born with this opinion?
This opinion was bred into her by the people Melissa Ortiz and Tommy Sotomayor love most, white fascists.
Now, can you imagine the pain this young woman was suffering and carrying around thinking this about herself?
Now, that's just for starters.
To everyone reading this, and especially Black men, think about the plight of the Black woman for a sec'. Now, you understand beauty, or physical attractiveness, means something different to a woman than it does a man. It is the measuring stick the overwhelming majority of all women determine their self-worth by; and this shouldn't be the case, but that's the way it is. So tell me, how would you feel about yourself, if all you saw on TV is the image of a blond haired, fair-skinned woman being portrayed as the standard of beauty, when your looks are completely the opposite of what you're seeing on the screen. Mind you, at the time, this was back in the mid-80's, there was nothing countering this sentiment. The Black power movement had flat-lined and the order of the day was, if you didn't have a hawk nose, pin-thin lips and damn near white skin, you weren't attractive, and no one was gonna' find you attractive.
And even though I was a young Black man, I understood how this sista felt, 'cause I had been made to feel the same way.
There was no one to tell that young sista that the Black woman was once the standard of beauty for women world-wide. Hell, Hollywood even made Cleopatra white (Elizabeth Taylor).
On top of this, think about what 'mainstream society' is saying to today's Black women in terms of dating and marriage. Whitey's stats tell Black women, she's the least likely to get married and the least likely to get responses on a dating website; and according to asian scientists (in this case an outright quack) like Satoshi Kanazawa, she's told her facial features are the least attractive amongst all ethnic groups of women.
Fortunately, there's a bit more of a Black consciousness to counter-act this kinda' non-sense now-a-days, but sub-consciously, the damage to our sistas has already been done by white supremacists and their institutions.
Now, consider that the majority of Black women grew up in fatherless homes. Mind you, this relationship is one of the most, if not the most important to a young woman in terms of her future relationships, 'cause this more than anything determines how good or bad her dating life with other men will be for pretty much the rest of her life. Meaning, once the father-daughter bond is broken, the ramifications of that can lead a young women into being oversexed and in abusive relationships as the norm. And, if the young woman's mother is conditioned to hate Black men as well, the young woman is in jeopardy of never being able to discern between a decent Black man who's courting her for the right reasons or one who means to do her harm. She could have the perfect Black man in front of her, but she'll never see him because to her, they're ALL out to abuse her.
And as a result of growing up without a father, more than likely, she and her mother will have to fend for themselves financially; and if she one day becomes a single mother herself, she'll have to play mother and father to a child. Not to mention, the travails she'll endure having to get and keep a job...or two.
A woman's greatest want is security, or at least some semblance of financial stability; and unfortunately not nearly enough Black women get this from Black men. In some ways, she feels like she's been thrown to the wolves without any kind of protection or protector. And she sees that the majority of the time when Black men do make some money, they share it with some plain-looking white woman instead of them.
And understand, white men love seeing our women in this state, because it insures that the Black Diaspora will stay in continual disarray, and it makes Black women ripe for their exploitation, either in the work place, sexually or both.
Now, let's rewind back and see why so many of our children are born into fatherless homes.
Why is it that in the early 1900's the Black nuclear family was more intact than it is now?
Under segregation, we had no choice but to work together and more or less 'fend for ourselves. Behind this, we had areas like the 'Black Wall Street' where Black men not only created a thriving financial infrastructure, but the Black woman could depend on us for food, clothing and shelter. So much so, that white supremacists bombed the Black Wall Street on June 1st, 1921. Now for the white supremacist simps out there, should we just forget about this? Should we not blame the pale-skinned degenerates who destroyed the financial infrastructure we created when we were doing the right thing for ourselves?
Anyway, what happened next was the white fascists got hip to the fact that we would build back our businesses if this country was kept segregated, so integration became the first tool whitey used to get us away from one another, because unity is the truest power, not money.
After whitey effectively integrated us into 'mainstream society' and told us we could now go to his schools, he created a curriculum for us that would effectively make us hate ourselves and each other. This was the second and by far most effective tool used to get Black women and men away from one another.
Now, once Black women and men were conditioned to hate each other and we turned away from our financial infrastructure to integrate with these degenerate devils, Black women could no longer depend on Black men for food, clothing and shelter because we weren't working for ourselves, we were now working for whitey. Enter the public assistance system where Black women could now depend on white institutions for these needs. And what was the main condition for Black women to get this sort of financial help...you have to get rid of the Black man. This was the third tool used to get Black men and women away from one another.
My point is this, it's not a coincidence that the Black Diaspora is in this dysfunctional state, this was thoroughly planned out by white fascists so we would never be as powerful as we were during the times of the Black Wall Street.
And I'm not saying just sit back and blame whitey and everything will get better, again, I'm saying, let's see what's been done to us, so we can correct the problem and solve it.
So after all this, the last kind of man a Black woman wants to be with is a Black one. Now, once this Black woman has a college degree and some proximity to other ethnic groups of men, she says, I can't depend on Black men for anything, so let me try 'something new' and date outside of my diaspora. How this woman usually winds up after decades of being with white, spanish and asian men is oversexed and alone at fifty after spending decades being a sex toy for them...just like Black men with this same philosophy wind up after their pursuits of relationships outside of our community. We think we're really doing something by dating outside our diaspora, but ultimately the joke's on us, 'cause we both wind up being sex toys for every other ethnic group.
Now, for all the reasons stated, as a Black woman, this is gonna make you kinda' frustrated, kinda' angry and kinda' argumentative.
Now, if you're a Black man reading this, am I saying you should try to be in a relationship with a bitter Black woman? NO!
Am I saying that you should try to marry this type of Black woman? NO!
Am I saying this woman is hard to get along with. YES!
But consider this, and I'm talking to the Black men who fancy themselves Black Nationalists...myself included; what I'm saying is when you encounter a sista who you think is bitter and argumentative, for all the reasons I've just listed, you must see HER STRUGGLE FIRST, BEFORE YOU SEE HER ATTITUDE!
REMEMBER, SHE WASN'T BORN THAT WAY, SHE WAS BRED INTO BEING THAT BY THE AMERICAN SOCIAL ORDER! AND YOU MUST SEE HER ATTITUDE AS A SYMPTOM OF HER STRUGGLE!
Now, they'll be some brothas who say, aw man, what kind of 'simptastic' crap is that? You're sayin' I shouldn't dislike this woman?
What I'm saying is, here's what will happen to you if you just dismiss this sista as 'another bitter Black woman'...
First, you're gonna' cast aspersion on all Black women and think they're all like that, meaning you'll never have a good Black woman in your life, if you truly want one.
Second, you'll use this as a rationale on why you don't like being around Black people period; and this will reinforce the conditioning you have to hate your own kind.
Third, consciously or subconsciously, you'll use this to reinforce why you should hate yourself for being Black.
And this is no theory! I can say this will happen to you definitively 'cause I've done this myself!
This mentality was force-fed into us for one specific purpose; and that is for the Black Diaspora to hate itself...if you're a Black man or woman reading this, that includes you too!
Now, a clear example of how indulging in this kinda' hatred backfires on the person ingesting it, is the tale of Melissa Ortiz and Tommy Sotomayor themselves.
Melissa was a staunch advocate of Tommy's and made videos saying his diatribes about Black women were the gospel truth. As of late though, they are now feuding and talking about how much they can't stand each other.
And it serves that refried bean eatin', leaf blowin', orange-pickin' tramp right...ya' see, she tried to openly diss Black women by saying she was one of them, and being that Tommy hates Black women, she met his wrath too.
Again, good for her a$$!
Now consider this, if you're a Black man complaining that there's no Black women who are genial, demure and exquisitely feminine, then here's what you (and I) have to do. Get together with some other brothas and build a community where the only thing Black women have to concern themselves about is taking care of (their) children and keeping up the home you provide for them to take care of those children in. Period. This will more than likely ensure that these Black women will have the sweet demeanor of some white trust fund baby named Buffy.
You can't expect a woman who's working two jobs, or extended hours on one of them consistently, raising kids alone and who never knew their father to be 'apple pie' sweet...that's crazy.
But in order for us to do any of this...we HAVE TO GET RID OF OUR COLLECTIVE SELF-HATRED!
Now, I advocate meditative techniques to do this at the subconscious level, but if we can at least consciously see this has been done to us, we can start on the path to fixing it!
Black men, we have made strides individually...we have; now we need to make them collectively to benefit the whole of the diaspora.
I'm ready to put some work in...how 'bout you?

In 1712, William Lynch, a british slave owner in the West Indies, was brought to the american colony of Virginia to consult a large group of slave-owning inbreds on how to curb the mass revolts that were happening in the area.
The term 'lynching' referring to the hanging of Black men in america was actually attributed to him and his surname.
Now, I'm figuring if you've been reading my Blog for any amount of time you've heard about or have actually read this letter. But in case you haven't, I'm going to go over its main tenets here.
But before we do that, let's go over this first part of the Willie Lynch speech/letter in its entirety...
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.
If installed correctly, it will control the slaves for at least three hundred 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.
In a nutshell, what dastardly Will is advocating is exploiting the differences between slaves so they'll fight amongst each other. In the latter part of this speech, he makes this plain by saying slave owners should pit light-skinned slaves against dark-skinned slaves, young slaves against older slaves, males slaves against female slaves, house slaves against field slaves, etc.
Now, not only are these methods still effective, but because of the 1964 Civil Rights act signed by President Johnson, which basically made 'integration' the law in america, these methods work more powerfully now than they did under segregation laws. Let me explain why...
In the early 1900's Tulsa, Oklahoma's 'Black Wall Street' was a thriving metropolis where many Black men were multimillionaires. The Black Diaspora there literally had their own banks, grocery stores, bus lines and every other kind of business associated with a thriving city. The american government bombed this city in 1921, calling this a 'race riot' to cover up for their dastardly method of stopping this city from continuing to prosper. Blacks were getting too powerful and Black women could wholly depend on Black men in this city to provide them and their children with food, clothing and shelter.
But the white elites were smart enough to realize that if they could keep bombing this community, Blacks staying in these segregated areas, would continue to build these businesses back up, thus continuing their growth. So whitey needed a sure-fire way to get our money into their pockets...their answer, intergration.
Enter Martin Luther King Jr.
Now, MLK spearheaded the Civil Rights movement and integration which was a trick played on us again, to get our dollars into white pockets. And it worked! We've never been as powerful since. Fast forward about fifty years later and this doctrine works so well, and Black men and women have been rendered so dysfunctional by its effects, that we can hardly date each other or engage in loving relationships with one another anymore.
The first thing elitist white fascists did when we entered their school system was create an 'education' specifically designed to make Black people hate themselves and each other; so for seventeen or eighteen years, if you're a Black man or woman reading this, you and I have been ingesting or ingested the white supremacist conditioning that has us now relegating ourselves to the status of sex toys for white, asian and spanish men and women.
How you ask?
If again, you are a Black man or woman reading this, whitey has us hating one another so much that we now spend the majority of our lives trying to date and mate anyone except another Black man or woman...ESPECIALLY if we have a college degree.
Also, the main tenet of the Willie Lynch letter is slave owners MUST GET THE BLACK WOMAN AWAY FROM THE BLACK MAN! It is and was imperative that Black men and women were and are made to hate each other through these white supremacist initiatives.
Now, I've said all that to say this, at some point we have to at least acknowledge 'consciously' that this was DONE TO US BY WHITE PEOPLE!
We can't keep thinking white people are our friends without staying in this cycle of dysfunction for the rest of our lives. Now, if you've been reading this Blog at all for the past couple of months, you probably know I advocate the use of meditative techniques to recondition ourselves out of this self-hatred at the 'subconscious' level. But as of late, I've gotten a lot of resistance to this idea. So what I'm advocating, or pushing for now is to make the Black Diaspora aware, at least consciously, that this was done to us; that's why the Black Diaspora is so ready to hate and hurt our own kind. If we can acknowledge this consciously, maybe it will lead to our doing something to correct this at the subconscious level, 'cause that's the place you really have to go to change behavior.
Or at this point, is the Black Diaspora so far gone, we don't have any chance of getting our right minds back?
I say where there's life, there's hope...and I can't give up on my people, it's just not in my nature.
So, if you are a Black man or woman reading this who considers themselves a Black Nationalist, conscious, or who just gives a damn about their people, and if you ever find yourself tempted to cast aspersion on our people for our negative behavior(s), think about the conditioning we've endured to make us this way. Remember, WE WE'RE NOT BORN LIKE THIS AND WE'RE NOT DOOMED TO CONTINUE BEING THIS WAY!
And the changing of our people believe it or not, starts with YOU!
So what are you willing to do to break this vicious cycle?

"...damnit, If you want a friend, look in the mirror."
--Dr. John Henrik Clarke speaking on the Black
Diaspora's search for political allies amongst non-Black people.
There ain't no justice, there's 'just-us'.
--Old African American proverb.
As of late, I've begun expounding on how I don't care about the plights of white, asian and spanish people; and even though this might seem mean-spirited, I'm not doing this merely as an exercise in embracing Black Nationalist extremities, I'm doing this 'cause the only people who talk about or practice any kind of 'multiculturalism' is our people.
It's imperative at some point that the Black Diaspora realize, we have no political allies in other ethnic groups. They either concentrate on their own agendas, or they band together to team up against us.
But hearing that message ad nauseum on this Blog, might result in the message losing its potency. It's kinda' like how I'm stressing subconscious meditation to cure us of the white supremacist induced self-hatred we carry throughout this life; at some point, hearing that same diatribe on this Blog over and over again can get pretty hackneyed.
Thus, I'm happy to have found an advocate in one of our ingenious ancestors, Dr. John Henrik Clarke.
Now, recently, I came across a video taped lecture of Dr. Clarke's called 'You have no friends'; the title pertains again to the Black Diaspora's thinking other ethnic groups have their best interest at heart. And in this lecture Dr. Clarke does a masterful job of elucidating how Black people are under the illusion that by working with other ethnic groups, we can achieve some kind of political camaraderie, that could get us closer to a socio-economic freedom. He tells us to basically wake up and smell the coffee, and puts into historical context how other ethnic groups continually prey on us when we do seek them out for some sort of assistance.
Now, I've never based an entire Blog post around a video, but this is the exception. I was always thinking about writing some sort of homage to Dr. Clarke, but never thought the timing was right. But accompanied by his videotaped message, I think this is the perfect way to introduce him to this Blog's audience. Firstly though, let me give you a bit of a primer as to who this masterful man was.
Dr. John Henrik Clarke was born on January 1, 1915, in Union Springs, Alabama. He was the youngest child of John and Willie Ella Clark who moved to Columbus, Georgia with hopes of earning enough money to purchase some land outright instead of sharecropping.
Dr. Clarke tells a story of how he was working for a white lawyer in his youth, and how he saw the lawyer's library was stocked with books on european history. Dr. Clarke stated to the lawyer how he'd like to read some books on Black history, to which this lawyer replied, "Unfortunately, you come from a people who have no history."
Even as a youth he knew this was a bald-faced lie; and he dedicated his life to finding his people in the annals of the world's historical events.
Clarke left Georgia in 1933 on a freight train bound for Harlem, New York City to pursue academics and activism.
He was 18 when he arrived in Harlem, and his skills as a writer and lecturer would be nurtured during the years of the 'Harlem Renaissance'. He studied history and world literature at Columbia and New York Universities and at the League for Professional Writers. Dr. Clarke was also co-founder of the 'Harlem Quarterly' newspaper (1949-1951), book review editor of the Negro History Bulletin (1948-1952), and a feature writer for the Black-owned Pittsburgh Courier and the Ghana Evening News.
Dr. Clarke became prominent in the Black Power Movement in the 1960's. He advocated for studies in academic institutions that told African history from a Black Nationalist's perspective. One of his peers was quoted as saying, "Clarke was a scholar devoted to redressing what he saw as a systematic and racist repression and distortion of African history by traditional scholars."
Besides teaching at Hunter College and Cornell University, Dr. Clarke founded professional associations dedicated to the study of Black culture. He was a founder along with Dr. Leonard Jeffries (another great Black scholar, google him if you haven't heard of this man) and first president of the African Heritage Studies Association and he was a founding member of the Black Academy of Arts and Letters. He was also one of the founding members of the African American Scholars Council.
At age 78, Dr. Clarke received his official doctorate from California Miramar University in Los Angeles.
Dr. Clarke returned to the ancestors on July 16, 1998.
Now, what makes and made Dr. Clarke deserving of the title 'Master Teacher' was his ability to put dates and world historical events contextually into a modern day perspective. He was able to delineate where and when concepts like greek philosophy were stolen from the schools of ancient Black people and give our diaspora chapter and verse of how they repackaged our sciences and spiritual practices so they could claim them as their own.
I've never asked the readers of this Blog to watch a video I've posted in its entirety, but this too will be the exception. If you are a Black man or woman who fancies themselves a Black Nationalist or conscious at all...or if you're just down for your people, you'd be well served to watch the entire thirty minutes of this video. Reason being, it touches on so many topics pertaining to Black Nationalism. Whether it's the African origins of every religion, or the european creations of male chauvinism and homosexuality, there's something to suit every stripe of Black Nationalist in Dr. Clarke's magnificent lecture.
SO I SAY HOTEP AND KEM WESIR TO THE NEGUS/NETJER/NETER/GOD, DR. JOHN HENRIK CLARKE!
Also, this entry marks a milestone, being that its my 100th Blog post!
I'd like to send a shout out to all the comrades that have been ridin' wit' me for nearly two years; and I'd like to send a special shout out to 'Kev' and 'Clair' for their support in my curating of this Blog. I'd also like to say, there's more e-books and vids in the works and on the way, so if you feel so inclined, stay tuned...you won't be dissapointed.
Enjoy this vid!

Recently, cars like BMW's 'mini' Cooper have become fashionable in 'yuppie' circles for their enhanced parking capabilities and their sticker price. Even Mercedes-Benz has put out one of these 'smart' cars called the 'Pure Coupe' which a person could own for about $14,000.
I myself have seen these 'urban dune-buggies' zipping about the city and have witnessed their increased maneuverability in traffic, and they do seem like the perfect solution for 'city-dwellers' who are always looking for parking spaces near their homes.
With that said, there's a more insidious reason for the appearance of these 'smart' cars on our shores and abroad as well...and it has to do with white fascists and their agenda for Black people. Now, I could include spanish and asian people in this white fascist agenda, but since these people have an all-abiding love for whitey and they can't stand us, I say, to hell with them.
Now, according to a 'Forbes' magazine article titled, 'The 10 most popular car colors' by journalist Matthew De Paula; in america, the most popular car color is white, hands down, since 1998, according to DuPont color marketing manager Nancy Lockhart. Now, over the course of the last few years, I myself have seen more white cars on the road than I ever have in my life, but I've noticed one thing about these 'smart' or 'mini' cars...and that is, rarely do I see a white colored one.
Now, I'm not saying I never see one of these cars in white, again, I'm saying I rarely do. They're usually some shade of blue, Black or silver; and there's a reason for this.
Ya' see, white cars attract white people. Now, people in general are tribal, but whitey is hyper-tribal. And one of the best examples of their hyper-tribalism is their 'acceptance' of Black music. I remember growing up, when Black people listened to every kind of popular musical genre and whites listened strictly to white Rock and Roll artists and european classical music. I also remember when Rap music was just starting out around the early 80's, and whitey wanted nothing to do with it, that is, until Rick Rubin put out the 'Beastie Boys'.
Now, the Beastie Boys were originally a 'punk rock' band, until Rick noticed there was more money to be made with Rap music, so this was one way he exploited the culture. And I think we've all at least heard about what happened when Elvis arrived on the scene. White people were secretly listening to 'Little Richard' and 'Chuck Berry' records, but when Elvis arrived, this is what really got them to acknowledge their love of Rock and Roll.
Remember, whites used to call Rock and Roll 'jungle music' because Black people created it and were the only ones playing it. But that's usually how whitey steals any facet of our culture, he laughs at what we're doing one moment, then in ten years, he's doing the very same thing himself, and in twenty years, he's claiming our culture as his own.
But back to 'mini' and 'smart' cars...if these manufacturing companies offered too many of these cars in white, whitey might start buying them in droves, especially those white people in more 'rural' areas and white supremacists don't want that, here's why...
These small cars are kept primarily in Black and blue colors, so they'll attract our people, and with their decreased sticker price, whitey hopes we'll take to them in droves, 'cause an accident in one of these cars would most likely be fatal being that they're so small.
These cars were put out primarily to decrease populations of Black people with their increased driving risk. And to thwart the notion of this, manufacturers are saying these cars have 'smarter' technological frames to keep the driver safer. But what they're not telling you is, if you get into an accident with a full sized SUV in one of these things, you're as good as gone. There's not enough 'smart' technology in the world to stop your mini car from being crushed like a can in one of these smack-ups.
And what I've also noticed is the white 'mini' cars that are being offered are usually 'electric cars' with higher sticker prices. White fascists did this to dissuade the average Black driver because they know we'll usually shy away from these for fear of not being offered adequate numbers of 'fueling' stations, or we think the car's performance will have a lack of 'torque'.
Remember, white birth rates are falling below replacement levels and whitey knows in a century or two, he could go the way of the dinosaur. So by all means, he's hyper-obsessive about 'depopulation' and 'population control'. I liken this to how the white medical establishment handles cancer patients, they basically guarantee that cancer victims are going to die with 'chemo' and 'radiation treatments' that destroy the body's immune system. And they do all of this understanding some of their people will be affected, but they just consider these people 'collateral damage' towards their white supremacist agenda.
So, if you're a Black man or woman reading this, make the smart choice and stay away from these 'mini' cars...'cause your life may depend on it.

Over the course of the last few years, I've come across my share of YouTube videos about social issues pertaining to Black people. And what strikes me as odd is, amongst Black people outside of america, the prevailing sentiment seems to be that Black americans are the dumbest of the diaspora.
I remember one instance when a Black brit was relaying this to the YouTube audience and one dark-skinned asian person agreed whole-heartedly. Now, with the history of Black brits and dark-skinned asians suffering injustices at the hands of myriad groups of british white supremacists, I was perplexed as to why they felt this way. When I challenged him on it, the Black brit basically said, that's what he was raised to believe. There were a couple of Black Africans who held these beliefs and when I reminded them how there are a good many of our people over there literally starving to death, and if that's the case, why would you call Black americans stupid? They conceded that I had a point.
There were also a few times where Haitians published these beliefs, and when I reminded these commenters that they spoke french because these are the people who ultimately conquered them, they just kind of dismissed my point. I remember one instance about four or five years ago, when white supremacists had completely devalued Haiti's currency.
I saw footage of Haitian men flipping through wads of worthless dollars, and the situation got so bad, that a good many of them resorted to literally eating dirt to survive; and the white media had footage of them doing this. But Black americans are idiots?
What I didn't understand about that situation is how Haitian citizens could be so proud of the Haitian Revolution of 1791, as they should be 'cause they defeated Napoleon's armies, but suddenly now, how they're so content to let white supremacists have their way with the island and their people. I guess the answer is during the Haitian Revolution they could physically 'see' their enemy, where as devalued currency doesn't really have a white face attached to it. Moreover, if the citizens of the island aren't the ones who had a hand in devaluing the currency in the first place, I wondered why their rebellious past didn't have them looting the stores to get what they needed. If white people are telling you your dollars are worthless, they're the ones dictating those terms...doesn't mean you have to abide by them. Why resort to eating dirt when you can do what your ancestors did, take up arms and get free. Then, when these same Haitians get to the states, they look down on Black americans and cater to whites like their gods. This still boggles my mind.
Also, there's the reasoning of Black Haitians, Jamaicans and Africans that Black americans didn't fight hard enough to get themselves out of slavery, which is the excuse they use to diss us; but they fail to realize that the reason they're in america is because white supremacists have made it impossible for them to earn a living in their country.
And when I related the facts of the recent Haitian crisis to a Black american co-worker, that person stated emphatically that Black Haitians are 'animals'. I just shook my head.
See, wherever Black people are in the diaspora, we may think we're superior to one another based on geography, but the one thing uniting us is the programming we get to hate ourselves in the white supremacist institutions of pre, middle and grade schools.
And if you're a Black man or woman reading this, whatever country you hail from, take comfort in knowing that you've never seen anything or anyone dumber in your life than one kinda' person...and that's a POOR WHITE MAN!
Now, whether you're a Black Haitian, Jamaican, Brazilian, African, etc., you have to admit that the whole of this world, especially in america, is set up for EVERY white man to win. The white male privilege is alive and well...and being squandered by many a white male on every continent. I don't know about other countries, but in america, the majority of people on public assistance or welfare are white; and it's been that way for decades. This still puzzles me.
On my way to work I pass scores of broke white men who are homeless or pan-handling in the streets and I'm like, are you that dumb-founded that you don't realize this whole country, continent and world has placed everything in your favor? Did you miss the e-mail that was sent to every white guy saying, if you only have half a brain you can lead a bountiful/wonderful life?
Not one of you can deny that this person exclusively has been given the most chance to thrive in this world, so when you pass one of these inbreds on the streets and they ask you for change, tell them to change their focus, so they can finally see and cash in their white male privilege chip(s)...this goes for gay white men too; 'cause the majority of them don't identify themselves as gay, so they still benefit from the (straight) white male privilege.
So, again, if you are a member of the Black Diaspora, and you're ever thinking about dissin' one of your own kind in another country, take a minute to ponder the plight of broke white men everywhere...and give that brotha or sista on a different shore a pass.
You'll be glad ya' did.

Fortunately or unfortunately, I've gotten a chance to visit several states in this country. Especially this country's sprawling cities. And whether you're talking about Chicago, New York, or L.A., the one thing they all have in common, is its population of poor and working class Black people being gentrified right out of their neighborhoods.
Shamefully, the majority of Black people are so conditioned to hate themselves and their own kind, when this happens, we think it's making our communities better.
We actually think seeing some white faces ensures us that we'll be treated better by whitey on the whole. I remember Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X) saying of his old Brooklyn, NYC neighborhood, that an annual event in Prospect Park, near his home was cancelled due to the African drumming ceremony being a little too loud for new noise ordinances whitey had just instituted. Spike reacted to this by saying, "You can't just come into someone's neighborhood and just disrupt the order of things, or just stop traditional rituals taking place over the course of decades just 'cause you feel like it."
Now, if the practice of gentrification wasn't insidious enough, the real reason behind it is even more so.
Anyone who's read this Blog for any amount of time knows I've talked extensively about white birth rates falling below replacement levels, and the effects of this on the white psyche; well, behind this we're seeing a 'white flight' in reverse because whitey feels that our diaspora is a little too close to necessary resources in these 'cities'. Meaning, Black people have too much access to public transportation and retail stores where they could buy necessary supplies like food, water, clothing, etc.
So what whitey's now doing is coming back into the city and kicking us out of our neighborhoods, so he can enjoy the close(r) access to these conveniences.
But there's an even more insidious side to the 'endgame' of this new wave of gentrification, and it has to do with an initiative called 'Rex 84' or 'The King Alfred Plan'.
Now, this basically is a mission statement on how the white elite are going to round up the Black Diaspora in a span of eight hours, put them on trains, and have our people put into incinerators for extermination.
This was originally drafted in case an ethnic war ever broke out in this country, and it was revised in 1984, thus 'Rex 84' to include spanish people...ya' know, those people who think whitey loves them so much.
Now, we're currently seeing the first phases of this, meaning, whites removing us from our neighborhoods to more desolate locations. See, if you move from say, Brooklyn, NYC to Pine Bluff, Arkansas, not only are you going to experience a major culture shock, but the nearest retail store is probably gonna' be at least a mile away AND you'll have nearly no access to public transportation. So, if you don't already have a car, you're screwed and stationary!
Access to goods are going to be three times worse than we're used to, intentionally.
And this has already happened in the case of Hurricane Katrina victims, i.e. Black people, and how the white elite bombed those levees and those who survived being flooded out of their wards were taken to places like Arizona and New Mexico to live. The white elite especially want to relocate Black southerners, 'cause according to them, that's where the majority of us are in this country.
So, here's the 'timeline' of this plan once the 'emergency' happens with our people according to this document; and I'll leave a link at the end of this post so you can see this document in it's entirety.
1. Local police and Minority leaders in action to head off the Emergency.
2. Countdown to eight hours begins at the moment the President determines the Emergency to be:
c. Of Long Duration (8th hour)
3. County police join local police (7th hour)
4. State police join county and local police (6th hour)
5. Federal marshals join state, county, and local forces (5th hour)
6. National guards federalized, held in readiness (4th hour)
7. Regular Armed Forces alerted, take up positions;
Minority troops divided and detained,
along with all white sympathizers, under guard (3rd hour)
8. All minority leaders, national and local detained (2nd hour)
9. President addresses Minority on radio-television,
gives it one hour to end the Emergency (1st hour)
10. All units under regional commands into the Emergency (0 hour)
â€œ0â€ Committee Report:
Survey shows that during a six-year period, production created 9,000,000 objects, or 1,500,000 each year. Production could not dispose of the containers, which proved a bottleneck. However, that was almost 20 years ago. We suggest that vaporization techniques be employed to overcome the production problems inherent in King Alfred.
Now, the 'committee report' part of this, refers to 9 million 'objects' that could not be effectively disposed of. What they're talking about, when they say 'objects' are people in concentration camps in nazi germany. They're basically saying, how the millions of people they were trying to dispose of didn't vaporize or 'burn up' fast enough, causing a 'bottleneck' or a blockage. So they in essence have created new techniques to dispose of those objects more quickly; basically with nuclear powered ovens that would vaporize these groups of people in an instant; so, again, there wouldn't be any kind of assembly line blockage when it comes to their plans for massive extermination of Black people.
Now, do you still wonder who the devil(s) of this earth are?
But, here's the $64,000 question...when the deputized militias, a.k.a white klansmen, come knocking on our doors and pointing high powered rifles in our face, telling us to get on these trains or we'll shoot you dead, will we be ready to defend ourselves?
Or, will we still be mired in the self-hatred that's got us so dysfunctional, that we can no longer form stable and loving relationships or families any more?
As a Black man or woman reading this and seeing the first phases of this happening as this post is being written, do you even give a damn that this is whitey's plan for us?
Only time will give us this answer...but I hope it's not too late for our diaspora when it does.
