The gospel of white supremacy (Part 9)...What do 'CVS' pharmacies and the 'conscious' stripper have in common?

'Consumer Value Stores', now known as the 'CVS Pharmacy', was founded on May 8, 1963 in the township of Lowell, Massachusetts by Stanley and Sidney Goldstein and Ralph Hoagland.

This company is the second largest pharmacy chain in the u.s. behind Walgreens, and is the second largest u.s. pharmacy based on total prescription revenues. Also, this company has 7,600 stores and is ranked 12th in the world according to Fortune 500 magazine.

A couple of years ago, I walked into one of these establishments in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. It was in the early afternoon and I was shopping for some items like toothpaste, eye wash and the like. After entering the store, I asked someone who I saw putting merchandise on the shelves which aisle the toothpaste was in. He gave me this deer in the headlights look. After a second, I saw that this was a spanish guy that barely spoke english. "Que?" he asked. So I said, "Donde es la pasta dentifrica?" remembering some of my high school spanish. He responded, “Oh...ocho, ocho.” Then he pointed towards aisle eight. I said “Gracias” and strode to the aisle.

I was looking at the toothpaste display when I felt some eyes on me. When I looked right, I saw this same spanish guy staring at me like I had three heads. I was like, “Que pasa?” and looked right back at him. He left. So I grabbed my toothpaste and kept it movin'. Then I went to the aisle for eyewashes, and sure enough, Julio was lookin' dead at me again like he was half-crazy. I was like okay, this refried bean eatin', leaf blowin' jerk is just following me around the store to make sure I don't steal anything. Mind you, this guy could barely speak english, but he knew that he should follow Black people around the store.

So I went to the manager of the store, who happened to be a dark-skinned asian. When I told him the problem, he said that there'd been a lot of thefts in the store lately. So basically, he was co-signing this spanish guy's B.S. So I took this dumb arab's name down and proceeded to call the regional managers of the store.

It took me about a week to get a response, but one of the regional managers called back and said they talked to this dumb arab manager and the orange-picking spaniard. Then this person apologized about the incident and proceeded to say that they'd issue me a twenty dollar coupon to shop for CVS in the future. I told this regional manager I didn't want a coupon to shop at CVS, I wanted to make sure no Black person went through what I did. They said they understood, but they wanted to make sure I continued shopping at CVS when I told them I'd never set foot in one again. So I told them what they could do was have someone check up on the behaviors of those two miscreants at their store. A couple of weeks later, I did return to the store, not to shop, but to make sure no one followed me around again, and no one did.

And for those of you thinking I should've taken the coupon, what I'd like to point out is, how that's a tactic companies use to smooth stuff over with people having a problem with their practices. And had I taken the coupon, the regional manager would have relayed this to habib and julio, and it would have been an excuse for them to keep up their harassment of Black people coming into that retail space. Moreover, I've seen cases where Black people took these discount coupons behind their harassment, and behind this, the same practices continued...unless our people demanded compensation collectively by way of a lawsuit.

Now, this reminded me of a situation that happened right after I wrote my post titled, 'The conscious stripper, Umar Johnson and the white fascist fear of Black homeschooling'. In that post, I spoke about how the Umar Johnson scandal had been staged, and how Umar and Khym Ringgold, were both white supremacist freemasons tasked with dissuading the Black Diaspora from opening Black Nationalist-oriented, independent schools that don't teach our children to hate themselves. And a couple of funny things happened behind my writing that post, and one of them was, Khym Ringgold sent me a 'friend request' on seen below. (If you'd like to see the Facebook 'friend request' a bit better, just click on it).  

I shook my head.

I was thinking, why the hell would this woman wanna' send me a friend request? What part of me calling her a skank and a troglodyte-of-a-negro didn't she understand?

Then after a couple of seconds, I realized what she was doing...she was employing the same tactic CVS had.

See, had I accepted ms. thing's Facebook request, what it would have done was discredit everything I'd written about her and Umar Johnson. It would have said to anyone coming to my Blog, that I wasn't really serious about the allegations I made against either one of them. Moreover, it would've taken all the credibility out of everything I wrote on this blog.

It would've made me look like an opportunist at best and a Black Nationalist fraud at worst.

The game these white supremacist freemasons are playing is chess not checkers.

Needless to say, I deleted this tramp's 'friend request'.

Now, let me make something emphatically I think any white supremacist freemasonic organization is really gonna' give a damn about what I'm doing on this blog?


But I'll tell you this, after I wrote that post, several of my post headers started disappearing, along with several pictures concerning anything to do with my talks about white supremacist freemasonry. Even two of the pics for my e-books on this Blog's 'sidebar' had vanished. Also, I had been mysteriously signed out of my Twitter, Facebook and Flickr accounts that were directly connected to this blog. So while understanding that no white freemason is gonna' lose any sleep over my Blog, I also understand that I'm definitely a bit more on their radar than I was before.

So if you see any gross inconsistencies on this Blog in the future, like the ones I've listed above, know that it's not my doing. Meaning, I'm not gonna' put out a post without a proper header, or leave my blog in any kind of disarrayed state. Cause I do care deeply about how my blog is presented to the public, and I hope that sentiment comes across whenever people who frequent this blog come back to visit.

So, three things I'd like to state clearly about the Umar Johnson 'scandal' are...




And if you think my saying the white elite are hell-bent on keeping our children from going to schools where they'll get a pro-Black education is false, just look at what's happening to Atlanta's 'Morris Brown College'.

Morris Brown College is one of this country's oldest Black colleges and is facing foreclosure. In 2012, this college was set to have its assets auctioned off. And more recently, an abandoned wing of the college mysteriously went up in flames. And almost every other HBCU is under this kind of financial attack.

Now, inside all these sordid storm clouds lies a very shiny, silver lining. And that's this...

white fascists are making two very clear points behind these actions, and one is that the most effective way they keep our Diaspora in cycles of self-hatred, is through their curriculums in (mis)educational institutions. And two is, the best way to get our Diaspora out of a self-hating mind state, is to send our children to independent, pro-Black oriented schools.

So, in a very inadvertent way, white fascists are telling us what we need to do to escape this kind of mental tyranny.

We got our work cut out for us family...'cause like I said previously, with white birth rates falling below replacement levels, whitey's workin' overtime to get rid of us through multiple initiatives.

And since whitey's showin' us what we need to do...LET'S BE ABOUT THAT WORK ASAP!


And like Sam Jackson said in 'Do the Right Thing': “That's the double truth, Ruth!”

Why young brothas are saggin' (Part 2)...Lenny Kravitz and the myth of multiculturalism...

Leonard Albert Kravitz, a.k.a. 'Lenny' Kravitz, was born on May 26th, 1964 in Manhattan, New York City. His mother, Roxie Roker, was a well known actress who played 'Helen Willis' in the 1970's sit-com 'The Jeffersons'; and his father, Sy Kravitz, was an NBC television news producer.

Lenny's parents noticed he began banging on pots and pans in the kitchen, playing them as drums at the age of 3. At five, he expressed how he wanted to be a musician. Years later, he began playing drums and soon picked up the guitar.

In 1974, the Kravitz family relocated to Los Angeles when Lenny's mother Roxie landed the role on The Jeffersons. At the behest of his mother, Lenny joined the California Boy's Choir for three years, and with them, he also sang with the Metropolitan Opera. Kravitz attended Beverly Hills High School, where he would meet a young 'Slash', who later would play guitar in the rock band 'Guns and Roses'; and in 1978, Kravitz was accepted into the school's well respected music program. Lenny's goal out of school, was to be a studio musician; and he also acted in TV commercials during this time.

After spending the better part of a decade playing small clubs and producing several demos, Lenny landed a recording deal with 'Virgin' records, and put out his first album, 'Let Love Rule' in 1989.

Now, fast forward to March 9th, 1993; Lenny puts out his magnum opus, the 'Are you gonna' go my way' album. This record represented Lenny at the peak of his powers. And this album, its single and its accompanying video, solidified Lenny's status as a bona-fide rock star. And I mean rock star in the pantheon of the all time greats like Jimi Hendrix, Little Richard and Chuck Berry; and that's not to say he's as talented as the aforementioned three master musicians. But what it also did was solidify Lenny's status as more of a 'white' rock star, like a Robert Plant or an Axl Rose (google these guys if you don't know who they are). And I especially remember the video for 'Are you gonna' go my way' the single. In its opening scenes, Lenny stands beneath a 'halo' of light(s) that descended onto his head; this was meant to simulate and reinforce the white christ mythos; or as spanish people call him, christo blanco. And the jesus christ post Lenny's striking in this vid, is meant to tether him and his music to more of a white audience. This and Lenny's bi-ethnic background, made him even more of a sex symbol to white women.

Now, let's fast forward again to November 24th, 2000; gone were Lenny's lovely locks, and his star power had somewhat diminished; but the general public still knows who he is. That is, the majority of people in america know who he is...and let me explain why I'm making this statement.

On the above date, Lenny was walking on Collins Avenue, in Florida's Miami Beach area. He was with his personal trainer after a workout they'd had at a neighborhood gym. Three cop cars screeched to a stop in front of Lenny; he thought maybe one of the cops, who was a fan, recognized him. Then one of the cops gets out of his car and yells at Lenny, “Hey John, come over here.”

Lenny told the cop his name wasn't John, but that didn't stop them from slamming him up against one of their patrol cars and slapping handcuffs on him. They told Lenny there'd been a bank robbery in the area, and he fit a description...ya' know the one, Black and male. These cops pinned Lenny's personal trainer, who was spanish, to a gate. Lenny's trainer tried telling them who he was, but the cops said they were looking for a Black man with an 'afro' and a beard...boy, doesn't that narrow a search down!

After the cops told Lenny a near-by Bank of america branch had been robbed, they summoned one of the bank's tellers to the curb where they had Kravitz cuffed. And Lenny at the time was just in sweats, and had no ID on him. This woman bank teller told the cops emphatically, that they had the wrong guy. 

The Miami Beach police spokesman at the time, Bobby Hernandez, said he had no record of the Kravitz incident. Hernandez even said he was surprised to learn of the cuffing. "Usually, we don't handcuff unless we're provoked," says Hernandez, who was trying to find out more about the story. He did say, however, that the robbery suspect was still at large afterwards. 

Lenny was shocked that something like this could still happen in america, and wrote about the incident in his song, 'Bank robber man', on his 2001 album, 'Lenny'.

Now, even with Lenny's bi-ethnic looks and star power, the cops treated him like he was just another nigg#r...Lenny's dreams of multi-cultural and multi-ethnic bliss were gone. He'd officially gotten his Black wake-up call.

This also reminded me of the Black wake up call that Henry Louis Gates Jr. got a few years back. You know, the Black Harvard professor who was arrested for trying to get into his own house, when his door was jammed. The white neighbors he loved so much, were the first ones to call the cops on him. And even though Henry tried showing the cops his ID, to prove that the house he entered was his, they still lead him away in cuffs. Even though he wore nothing but slacks, collared shirts and penny loafers...and again, had a Harvard pedigree.

I'm bringing these incidents up to make a point about why our young brothas are wearing 'saggin' jeans.

Now, if Black people, who are 'morally upstanding', and fit the profile of 'certified pre-owned negros', are being treated this way, and our young Black men see this, then what would inspire them to emulate these pseudo-Black men?

I remember the Black politician Ras J. Baraka, who's now Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, saying that saggin' jeans make our young men look 'retarded'.

Now, after incidences like the shooting deaths of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Amadou Diallo...and ya' know I could keep goin'; and one of the mother of all travesties foisted on Black americans, Hurricane Katrina...and more recently, the shooting deaths of a Southern Carolina bible study group perpetrated by Dylann Roof, I ask who looks more retarded, our young Black men who are wearing saggin' jeans, or the Black adults who continue emulating their oppressors by wearing tight, european-styled three piece suits, dresses, shoes, and the like?

And mind you, our African ancestors never wore tight, restrictive clothing; europeans introduced us to these kinds of fashions. So whether our children know it or not, they're emulating their ancestry more than Black adults are. Meaning, our young men, are more in their right minds than we are.

Now, for the record, I confess that I don't like the way saggin' jeans look on our young men; and personally, as a middle-aged Black man, I wouldn't be caught dead in them. But, that doesn't mean I don't see why our young people, especially our young Black men are doing this. What they're saying to us, and the world is, why should we emulate the very people in this white fascist (american) social order, who want us dead?

And like I said in the first post of this series, while we're calling them idiots for how they dress, they're showing us how smart they really are. 'Cause defying the american status quo that's hell-bent on killing you and yours, is STRAIGHT UP INTELLIGENCE!

The other reason I'm writing this post, is recently, I saw a documentary on the 90's R&B group, 'Kid and Play'. Ya' know, the two young men who starred in the 'House Party' movies...and I remember the baggy attire they were fond of wearing later in their careers. I also distinctly remember Chris 'Kid' Reid saying that after his mother was killed in a car accident, he went to live with his father. Now, where they moved was a white section of Staten Island, New York; and Chris says that neighborhood was probably, “the most racist place on God's green earth.” 

Chris detailed how he got chased from school, from fishing in his local pond, and almost every other place in that borough, by gangs of white bullies. And being that his father was experiencing this as well, he moved them to an all Black neighborhood in Queens, New York. And when Chris speaks of that neighborhood, he literally said, “Whew...thank you, there was no more running for a while.” 

And I tell you, until that moment, I realized I'd never once heard a Black person say they were glad they moved from a white neighborhood, to an all Black one.

I'd always heard the opposite.

And this solidified to me, the types and the magnitudes of Black self-hatred, myself, and every Black person I know, has been indoctrinated into.

So ultimately, what I'm saying is this, Black elders have got to stop damning our youth in favor of whitey and their (destructive) culture. I remember one day when I lived in New York, I was in Times Square and I passed a group of Black Isrealites. Now, you would think these brothas would be pro-Black to the core...well, they were, except in the case of young Black men. I remember the leader of this particular group saying he was glad a young Black man was shot down 'cause he was a rapper. I forgot the rapper's name, but there were some other middle-aged Black men who listening to this imbecilic Black Isrealite, while they clapped gleefully at the mention of this rapper being shot dead. And I'm thinking, how stupid are these middle-aged men, when white cops treat them the same way they treat our youth.


Now, some may say the LAPD didn't kill Rodney the night they surrounded him and beat him within an inch of his life; but they certainly finished the job after he put his book out. And I might write about that incident in a later post.

So before we go pointing fingers at our young men for their styles of dress, or any negative behavior they might exhibit, we need to point the fingers back at ourselves and ask what resources have we truly left for them to survive and thrive with? Why is it that our young people still have to go to all sorts of non-Black people to get a job? Why are we not at least doing more to provide them with a better education at the grade, middle and high school levels, that doesn't teach them to hate themselves?

So before we begin chastising our young men about their style of dress, let's go down to our local police precincts and chastise those badge wearing inbreds for shooting down our children.

It's high time the Black Diaspora got back into our right minds, so we can unite and strategize for what whitey's got in store for us.

We need to understand that with white birth rates falling below replacement levels, white fascists are constantly on their grind to find the next round of weaponry they're gonna aim at us. Now, whether it's biological, financial, physical or psychological, we know they can't stop, won't stop, until they rid this world of us completely.

So to every Black man, woman, child, senior, etc.; let's put ALL our differences aside, so we can have a chance at surviving what whitey's got in store for us.

'Cause ya' ain't gonna' be nothin' nice.

Here's the Lenny Kravitz video for his single, 'Are you gonna' go my way'. Notice after the white halo descends onto Lenny, at 14 seconds into this video, we see a young Black man with a bar code on his T-shirt. This signifies how white fascists are intent on associating themselves with, and exploiting the culture(s) of young Black men, to make their white mainstream culture look 'cooler'. And this is ultimately what white fascists were doing with Lenny in this video...especially in terms of the white christ story. Also, check out how at 31 seconds in, you'll see a prominent scene of a Black woman dancing with a white guy; this happens again at 1:01 seconds into this vid. This is the typical divide and conquer tactic that will be employed by white fascists into perpetuity. They always gotta' keep Black men and women separated, as per the 'Willie Lynch letter'. 

Also, notice how this vid says it clocks in at 3:34 at first; but when you play it, how it switches the entire vid's run time to 3:33. Now, there just happens to be 33 degrees of white supremacist freemasonry...but there's also a higher degree designated for white freemasons exclusively, this is called the '33 and a third' degree. Coincidence? Hmmm...

3 bold-faced lies about Black men...

“...white people don't wanna' read about Black people,
Black women don't like Black men, and Black men
don't read, so who we gonna' sell your book to?”
--a quote from a white literary agent to Walter Mosley,
about his best-selling novel, which became a film,
'Devil in a blue dress'.

While I was watching a book reading given by Walter Mosley (who happens to be my favorite author), at Washington D.C.'s Library of Congress; I shook my head when Walter related how a literary agent had the nerve to utter the above quote to him; like it was the gospel truth.

Walter then said the reason she didn't think his magnum opus, 'Devil in a blue dress', was commercial, was because it featured the Black male hero, Ezekiel, or 'E-Z' Rollins (Mind you, the ancient Black deity 'Heru' is where we get the word 'hero' from).

This made me think about other stereotypes foisted on Black men that were baseless. So I thought I'd go about debunking some of these myths, or bold-faced lies, in this post.

So let's go in...

Lie # 1: There are more Black men in jail than in college...

During a 2007 NAACP forum, Barack Obama himself loudly proclaimed that, “We have more work to do when more young Black men languish in prison than attend colleges and universities across america.” And in another instance, the basketball playing Uncle Remus, I mean, Charles Barkley, explained on a TV show in 2012, reasons why he carried a gun. He stated, “You know, we as Black people always...we don't have respect for one another. You know, we've got more Black men in jail than in college, and crime in our neighborhoods is running rampant.” 

Now, when an athlete declares this, its not as hard-hitting as when the president, and the first Black president, in my lifetime anyway (look up John Hanson, who was the first Black president in this country under the 'Articles of Confederation' before George Washington) makes this statement. Any Black person, Black men especially, would take it as a fact after hearing Barack make this declaration. But, if you're a curious-minded Black person, you'll take the time to research these theorems to validate their veracity. 

Hell, even Walter Mosley said at his book reading that the reason he named one of his most popular serialized characters 'Socrates Fortlow', was because by his estimation, prison was and is, the Black man's university. And ultimately, this is where the majority of us are learning things.

Side note about the philosopher socrates, and all the greek/roman/white philosophers; the first university in the world was in Timbuktu, Africa; it was called 'Sankore' University, or the 'Sankore Madrasah'. And don't take my word for this, go look it up. This university was actually called an 'omniversity' cause ALL the sciences were housed under its roof. This is where the greeks/freaks learned sea navigation, science, art, astrology, astronomy, mathematics, and every other science known to mankind. So indeed, even the masterful writer Walter Mosley drank the white fascist 'his-story-cal' kool-aid, and was perpetuating this stereotype.

Now, in 2013, the 'National Prisoner Statistics Program' conducted by the 'Bureau of Justice Statistics', counted 745,000 Black men behind bars.

And in 2013, the american 'National Center for Educational Statistics', counted 1, 437, 363 Black men in american colleges.

And the numbers have been like this for at least the last five years. So Barack, Charles...and hell, even Walter were wrong. Goes to show you, how no Black person should take the word of white fascists, or the american white fascist social order as gospel...EVER!

Lie #2: Black men who engage in homosexual acts while incarcerated, are being infected with the HIV/AIDS virus, and are spreading the disease throughout the Black community once they're released...

A study done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Black american men in Georgia's penitentiary system, showed that 90% of them who had HIV, were infected before they arrived to the facility.

And of the men who were infected while in prison, half of them confessed to engaging in homosexual acts with male and female prison staff members.

Terry Butler, a CDC spokeswoman explained, “Media coverage of this issue over the past several years has been characterized by misperceptions that HIV transmissions in prisons is widespread...most news stories provide little evidence for that idea.”

So the next logical question would be: how are Black people being infected with HIV at such high rates?

Over the course of the last several decades, its been proven that the AIDS virus was foisted on populations of Black Africans through a Polio vaccine. And a man named Dr. Boyd Graves substantiated this through his reasearch in his book, 'State Origin: The evidence of the laboratory birth of AIDS'. My next post is gonna' be about brotha Boyd, and I'll leave a link for some info. where he displayed the 'flow chart' he found in his research proving AIDS was man-made. And mind you, the 'Polio' vaccine I mentioned earlier, just happened to be administered precisely in the areas where AIDS was first discovered in Africa. And I think we all know how (Kill) Bill Gates has been promoting these vaccination programs through his organization(s). So more than likely, the Black american population is being infected through the same vaccinating process. Meaning, if you're a Black man or woman reading this, you should think twice, or three times about getting a flu shot at your local pharmacy. And if you're hell-bent on receiving this shot, don't get it in a Black neighborhood. 'Cause more than likely, what they're shooting you up with, is more than just a strain of flu.

Lie #3: Black men are the poorest men in america...

According to a Pew Research study, the poorest men in america are spanish, not Black.

And this study also says, that roughly 10% of america's white populus are living in poverty. Now, what does this really mean in relation to this lie/question? Well, there are roughly 300 million white people living in america; so if 10% are living in poverty, that means about 30 million whites are living with and in impoverished conditions. This same study says roughly 27% of Blacks americans are living in poverty as well. So let's break down these numbers...

There are approximately 30 million Black people living in america; now of those, again, 27% are impoverished. This means that about 10 million Black americans are opposed to 30 million whites.

And I know what some will say, you're probably thinking the number's higher for whites just because there's more white people in america, but remember, white people have the 'white privilege'...meaning, there's no reason any white person in this country should be poor. And there's surely no reason why the majority of people on welfare in this country are white. And mind you, that statistic has been a fact for decades.

Now, in regards to spanish people, and I know the 'PC' term for spanish-speaking people is 'latino', but not only is the term 'latino' a white invention for people who didn't want to identify themselves as Black, but since they don't like us, I figure I shouldn't give them the respect of using a 'PC' term when it comes to them. With that said, there are roughly 54 million spanish people living in america. And their rate of poverty is at approximately 28.2% according to this Pew Research study. So there's about 15 million of them living in impoverished conditions. And those are just the ones who are registered, this number doesn't represent undocumented spanish americans. Beyond this, I've seen instances where a spanish person got a job before a Black person, simply because they were spanish. So, they do have more access to resources, especially in terms of jobs, than our people.

Now, I wanted to debunk three lies about Black men...but since I'm feeling the skin I'm in, let's go for four.

Lie #4: Black men are the poorest men in the world...

I remember growing up thinking that the majority of the world's famine-ridden and starving people lived in Africa. But after looking at a research study done by the 'World Food Programme', I found out that the continent leading in world hunger rates isn't's Asia!

This study says roughly 227 million people in Africa are living in conditions of famine, as opposed to 552 million people in Asia.

Now, white fascists have created the above stereotypes/lies about Black men/people in order to do one thing, and that's get Black people as a whole to hate themselves from the cradle to the grave. And unfortunately, it's working TOO WELL!

I expounded on two examples where a Black man who inspired me to write this blog, and a Black woman who was looking and commenting on my Blog for the better part of a year, both exposed themselves as completely self-hating anglophiles. And what's saddest about this is, the majority of us feel the same way. And what's worse is, those who acknowledge feeling this way, don't and won't do anything to change it.

Lastly, the quote made by that inbred of a literary agent who said, “...Black men don't read...”, was another lie about us I wanted to address. And I did this with the pictured header of this post. Now, the books represented there like Reginald Lewis', 'Why should white guys have all the fun', and Tyrone Powers, 'Eyes to my soul', are but a few books I read in my early twenties that made a real impact on me (And if you wanna' see those book covers more closely, you can click on my header to expand it). And there's no dearth of Black men reading or writing books today. Even though there may be less physical distribution centers for their stories, ala retail book stores, our stories are pretty readily available through any website where books are sold. And our appetites for these stories don't show any signs of waning.

So I hope this clears up some of the fallacies behind being a Black man in america, or in the world period; and I hope any Black man, especially a young one, can look at this and be inspired to keep your chin up and your aspirations high. Understand, you are the closest representation of God on this earth, this is why you can create every other type of man, while none of them can create one of you. Know that there's no challenge in this world too great for you to overcome.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again...I LOVE BEING A BLACK MAN!!!

The cult of Black and white cinematic symbolism (Part 2.5)...Why the Black Diaspora should boycott the movie 'Creed'...

Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone, better known as Sylvester Stallone, was born in New York City on July 6th, 1946. He was the elder son of Frank Stallone Sr., who was a hair-dresser and beautician, and Jacqueline Stallone, who was an astrologer, dancer and former promoter of women's wrestling.

At age 15, afer his parents divorced, Sly moved to Philadelphia to be with his mother, Jackie, and her new husband. By this time, he had begun lifting weights and was enrolled in Devereaux High School where he took up fencing, football, and the discus. 

Following graduation, Stallone received an athletic scholarship from the American College of Switzerland. While there he was a girls' athletic coach and in his spare time he starred in a school production of Arthur Miller's 'Death of a Salesman'. The experience inspired him to become an actor and after returning stateside, he started studying drama at the University of Miami until he decided to move to New York in 1969 to pursue his dream.

Stallone auditioned frequently but only occasionally found stage work and eventually had to resort to appearing in a softcore porn film titled, 'Party at Kitty's and Studs', which was later repackaged as 'The Italian Stallion' after he became famous. He managed to secure a bit role in Woody Allen's Bananas (1971), but after he was turned down for The Godfather (1971), he became even more discouraged.

Rather than give up, Stallone channeled his frustrations into writing, churning out lots of scripts, some of which were produced. Still auditioning though, he managed to land a starring role in the movie, 'Rebel', in 1973.

In 1974 Stallone married actress Sasha Czack and they moved to California in the hope of building their acting careers. His first minor success came when he wrote the screenplay for the film, 'Lords of Flatbush' (1974) with Henry Winkler, which he also co-starred in.

Then, on March 24th, 1975, Stallone went to see the Muhammad Ali vs. Chuck Wepner fight. Now, supposedly, he was so inspiried by what he saw, he went home and after three days and twenty straight hours of writing, he produced the script for his film, 'Rocky'.

Now, other stories like the autobiographical flick 'Somebody up there likes me', about the life of Rocky Graziano, may have been the real inspiration behind this film; but personally, when I saw the movie 'On the Waterfront', starring Marlon Brando, I was shocked at how many comparisons I saw to the film Rocky. After watching several scenes, I was literally thinking, oh, so this is where Sly got that idea from.

The film Rocky was released in 1976; and we all know how this was the movie that made Sly an international star. I think we've all seen this flick about a journey-man boxer who works part-time as an enforcer for a local Philadelphia loan shark. One day Rocky is given a shot at the Heavy-weight boxing title by it's owner 'Apollo Creed', and even though Rocky loses to him in a split-decision, Rocky's still lauded for 'going the distance' with the champ.

And I'm pretty sure everyone knows about the other sequels in the Rocky franchise. But the one I'd like to focus on is 'Rocky 4', where he squares off against the hulking Russian, 'Ivan Drago'.

Now, Rocky 4 was released in theaters on November 27th, 1985. It was also written and directed by Sly Stallone, and it was produced for a budget of $28 million, and raked in over $300 million in american theaters.

This movie is the story of Russia's top boxer, Ivan Drago, coming to america to show his athletic superiority to the whole of the american boxing community. Ivan wants to fight Rocky, but instead Apollo Creed agrees to introduce him into the ranks of american boxing. Ivan kills Creed in the ring, and afterwards Rocky fights him to get revenge supposedly for Creed, but more so for his country. Thus, the poster of Rocky 4, where Sly is draped in the american flag.

Now, what I wanna' comment most on is the killing of Creed. If you've ever watched this flick, you'll remember how Ivan Drago was a 6 foot 5, 260 pound, giant of a guy. And what were his facial features like? He was blonde-haired and blue eyed. The walking embodiment of the aryan ideal. This was the archetypal aryan 'superman'; and these were the types of men recruited for the Nazi 'SS'. And Drago's physical traits were fundamentally what Hitler's diatribes of ethnic purity were founded on; even though Hitler himself didn't have blonde hair and blue eyes. In the 1936 Olympics, Hilter set out to show how athletically superior these men were, until brotha Jesse Owens showed 'em all what time it really was.

So right before Creed and Drago are set to fight, Creed puts on this big theatrical production, lead by brotha James Brown singing the song, 'Living in america'. Now, if you haven't seen this movie in a while, watch the scene where Drago delivers the death blow to Creed. Creed's Black corner man sees him getting killed and yells to Rocky, “Throw in the towel!” But Rocky freezes. He doesn't throw in the towel, he drops it. Now, this was supposed to show how perplexed Rocky was at Drago's 'freakish' strength, but in essence, what Rocky's doing, is letting Drago, the white aryan, kill Creed, the Black man. See, it's not enough that Creed was defeated and his title was taken away, the white fascist/aryan ideal, is that the game's not over, or the job's not done, until the Black man is dead.

Understand, the Black man has the most genetic power to breed white men out of existence. So a Black man 'Living in america', or anywhere else for that matter, is a threat to white men, and people, everywhere. And this is further emphasized by white birth rates currently falling below replacement levels. So James Brown's singing 'Living in america' before Creed dies, is sending the sublime message that for Black men, 'Living in america' is a death sentence.

Also, in one scene, while Drago is training, he's shot up with some sort of serum which looks to be steroidal in nature; this is saying something that Brotha Panic (google him if you don't know who he is) phrased beautifully in one of his lectures, and that's how 'technology is the white man's spirituality'. And it's also the way they compensate for their lack of melanated gifts that are natural to Black men (again Jesse Owens). An example of this kind of technology is the Black gun. There are guns that are painted different colors, but the vast majority of them are colored Black, especially when you think about the pistols issued to white cops. And the reason the gun is so phallic-looking, is 'cause it's paying homage to the Black man's penis being more genetically powerful than a white man's. And notice I didn't say anything about penis 'size', this is a stereotype white men/women gave us.

And anyone who thinks I'm exaggerating when I say that white men secretly wish they were as genetically, or physically powerful as Black men, should take a gander at this cover of 'Men's Journal' magazine from July 2014. I recently saw this in a dentist's office. Now, remember when Klansmen would talk 'til they turned blue about 'ethnic purity'? Well what we have now, are white men so desperate to identify themselves with Black male virility, that they're not only tanning themselves, but they're now smearing themselves with dirt to darken their skin. And if you're saying, aw c'mon bruh, you're reading too much into this cover, I want you to notice how this whiteboi is not only holding a Black bag behind his head, but how he's wearing Black trunks as well. And the sub-title, 'PUSH HARDER' is clearly a sexual reference. So you make the call.

Hell, even the Rocky poster for what people thought was the last picture in that franchise has him cast not only in Black and white (to the left), but shows him throwing the 'Black power' fist.

Moving on...

Now, the latest movie in the Rocky franchise, 'Creed', began filming in england and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 19th, 2015; and is slated for a release date of November 25th, 2015. And this film features Micheal B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed. You should take note of the Creed movie poster in this post's header, where the young Creed is still wearing red, white and white fascists are basically saying, across generations, this is still the story of the Black man in america.

I've got the trailer for this film at the end of this post, and in it, you'll see how it starts in total darkness, before a white flourescent light flickers on; this is setting up the Black and white cinematic symbolism I spoke about in my post before last. Then we see the 'MGM', 'Warner Brothers' and 'New Line Cinema' logos, one after the other, all in Black and white. A few seconds after, we see the young Creed stepping into a boxing gym, where the gym's trainer reminds him, “...your daddy died in the ring.”

This and the fact that Rocky agrees to train the young Creed for his championship fight is saying, that a Black man (Apollo Creed) can't turn a young Black man (Apollo's son) into a winner, but the white man (Rocky) can. And with the young Creed wearing red, white and blue, this flick's saying how this is one of the universal truths of the american social order.

Now this is further exemplified in this picture of Rocky and the young Creed, where Rocky is completely dressed in Black, while the young Creed wears a white t-shirt. This is meant to show Creed is the subordinate of the two. And it shows how Creed is supposedly weaker, physically or genetically, than Rocky is. Just like how white men are genetically weaker than Black men. Remember, white people are genetically recessive (the truest definition of the word 'degenerate'). Now this is how whitey always twists our truths. He takes what is real and puts his white supremacist spin on it. It's just like when white people have us calling ourselves 'minorities', when whitey knows that they're the world's real minority; but in order to keep Black people feeling inferior, they have us saying this about ourselves.

And ultimately, this movie is meant to keep young Black men content with ingesting the various aspects of american culture that are designed to either kill them, or make them hate themselves.

Now, we saw the same non-sensical mess in the movie, 'Django Unchained', where Jamie Foxx as Django was shooting down the various white men in the 'Candy Land mansion', and a Tupac song came on.

Not only was this song cinematically and chronologically out of place, but it was meant to indoctrinate young Black men and women into the idea that their history is only comprised of american slavery. Just like the crap they learn in american schools.

See, white fascists know that the last, best hope for our Diaspora to come up out of our dysfunction, lies with our young people. So by all means, they're doing whatever they can to keep them abiding by and imbibing in, the self-hating doctrine that was nearly force-fed to my generation in every pre, middle and american high school (The Umar Johnson 'scandal').

I wouldn't be suprised if they pushed the release date for this flick back to Christmas, just like they did for Django.

So if and when this flick comes to a theater near you, do yourself and the Black community a favor, and give that twenty or thirty dollars you'd spend at the cineaplex to a Black-owned business.

Let's show Stallone, that our 'Creed' from now on, will be avoiding entertainment that's meant to keep us hating ourselves and everyone who looks like us.

And like Sam Jackson said in 'Do the Right Thing': “...that's the triple truth, Ruth.”
