The African origins of martial arts...


One evening, I was watching a Tariq Nasheed video (and for the uninitiated, Tariq is the man who produced the ‘Hidden Colors’ documentary series) and on this night, Tariq was talking about the recent climate surrounding the gestapo-like tactics of american cops and the ‘Blue Lives Matter’ law.

One anglophilic negro-of-a-Black man called into Tariq’s show and started a dumbfounded diatribe about the dysfunctional state of Black americans. He started out by saying that we (Black americans) shouldn’t resort to looting and burning down our own neighborhoods, if we want to stage any kind of continuous protests against police corruption.

Firstly, for any other Black men or women who subscribe to this nimrod’s point of view, let me say straight away that especially in the case of our people’s revolts in Ferguson, Missouri, that what those young men and women DID NOT do was burn down their own neighborhoods. 

Meaning, not one of those young people burned down the apartment, condo, or homes they lived in. What they burned down were the retail stores that our people didn't own. Moreover, they rightfully burned down these stores cause they continuously overcharge and disrespect us in our neighborhoods, while selling us expired products and thinking they’re doing us a favor in the process.

A few seconds later, this nit-wit said that in response to police brutality, just like Koreans have ‘Tae Kwon Do’, Thailand’s citizens have ‘Muay thai boxing’ and Brazilians have ‘Jiu-Jitsu’, Black people should create their own kind of organized ‘self-defense systems’.

I just shook my head.

I thought to myself, not only has this Tom bought into every stereotype white fascists fed him about us, but he has no idea where the martial arts really come from. So that's what I'm gonna' expound on in this post.

Let’s start with my own pseudonym, ‘MontUHURU Mimia’.

Our ancient ancestor’s worshipped an African war deity named ‘Montu’. And before the phrase ‘martial arts’ was coined, our people called these fighting methods the ‘Montu’ Arts. So not only did the ‘Montu Arts’ pre-date the ‘martial arts’ by several centuries, but I’ll show you how the contemporary martial arts were directly descended from our Montu Arts.

*Side note: One last fact about my pseudonym—the term ‘Uhuru’ is Swahili for ‘Freedom’, so my first name ‘MontUHURU’, literally translates into ‘War or fight for freedom’.

Now the pic to the right displays glyphs on the walls of the Temple of Ramses III. These glyphs illustrate a combination of hand and ‘fencing’ type fighting styles using sticks. These martial artists are also wearing face masks for protection. You can click onto this picture to see more of it. And I'd like to note how european 'fencing' still uses face masks to this day. Also, to the left and right of these central figures, are pictures depicting wrestling throws over the shoulders of other martial artists. The Temple of Ramses and these pics date back to 1080 B.C.E., and they're located in Kemet, Africa…this area is now known by the name whites gave it, and that name is ‘Egypt’.

This pic to the right, is one illustrating the ancient Nubian/Senegalese wrestling martial art called ‘Lutte’. The moves depicted on these walls are where modern Judo/Jiu-Jitsu, or MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) grappling techniques come from.

Now, when I was in my pre-teens, Bruce Lee was a bona-fide star in Black neighborhoods. We not only respected his fighting style, but the ingenuity of his mastering the art of blocking and countering simultaneously. And I also remember in a documentary called, ‘I am Bruce Lee’, the film’s white narrator credited him for creating the Hip-Hop style of ‘break-dancing’ from the way he wielded his ‘nun-chucks’ and pounded out his opponents feet while spinning in semi-circles on the floor. While he did this, he also moved his legs in a circular motion in the movie, ‘The Chinese Connection’.

Also, I remember how the iconic Hip-Hop group, the ‘Wu-Tang Clan’ revered asian martial arts movies depicting the fighting styles of the famed ‘Shaolin Temple’. So much so, that they actually named their group after a rebel gang in one of those films.

But if you wanna’ really talk about ‘asian’ martial arts and the Shaolin Temple, we’ll have to take yet another look at the founding contributions of ancient Black people.

In the 5th or 6th century, a Buddhist monk named ‘Bodidharma’ traversed China. And in his journeys he closely observed the animals in nature, i.e., snakes, tigers, cranes, etc. After his travels, he formulated fighting styles based on these animals, and long story short, Bodidharma established the Shaolin Temple and its ‘nature-based’ martial arts techniques. Mind you, Bodidharma was a Black man.

Now, for those of you saying, c’mon bruh…there weren’t any Black people in ancient China, I’d tell you that China’s first dynasty, the ‘Shang’ dynasty, was comprised solely of Black people.

So whenever you watch any ‘karate flick’ like the cult classic ‘Five Deadly Venoms’, or any film centered around the Shaolin Temple, know that your ancestors founded those fighting styles.

Now, let’s go in on ‘Brazilian’ Jiu-jitsu…

First off, what that ignoramus of a Black man who called Tariq’s show didn’t know, is Brazil has the second largest concentration of Black people in it, outside of Africa.

So whenever you talk about Brazilians, you’re talking about Black people.

Now, I think by now, especially with the previous information, it’s fairly easy to see where Jiu-Jitsu’s grappling techniques come from. And I also think it's common knowledge that the most recognizably African martial art comes out of Brazil. And that martial art is called ‘Capoeira’. This circular-motioned fighting style is the most direct descendent of Hip-Hop’s break-dancing, and has its roots in the ancient Congo. It combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music, and is now very popular with white folks in keeping with their themes of cultural theft.

So I’ve said all that to say, or at least to reiterate, that Black people created not just some of the world's arts, but ALL of them. Additionally, we not only created some of the world's sciences—but ALL of the world’s sciences. And you don’t have to take my word for it, just research any science long enough and you’ll eventually find our people at its genesis.

Case in point, the symbol to the right is called the ‘Gye-Nyame’ and is pictured in the center of this post’s header. It’s what Bruce Lee’s looking sideways at. This is an ancient symbol from Ghana, Africa and it literally means, ‘except for God’. Now, what the ancient Ghanians meant by that phrase is, some achievements are nearly impossible to attain ‘except for God’. And this symbol is where ancient asians got their swirling ‘Yin-Yang’ symbol from (if you’ve never seen a Yin-Yang symbol, google it).

So if you’re a Black man or woman reading this, the next time you're watching a super cool kung-fu flick, or you’re admiring any fair-skinned martial artist’s style, remember the people who started all of these fighting systems…and then remember that they all looked like you.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...

I LOVE BEING BLACK!!

One mo' bald-faced lie about Black men...


Lie#4: Black men commit the most crimes in america.

A few days ago, I watched a video of a ‘CNN’ panel about the ‘BlackLivesMatter’ (BLM) movement, and the overall perception of america’s police force.

On this panel was a retired New York Police Department (NYPD) detective, turned law enforcement analyst named Harry Houck. The next panelist was a brotha named Marc Lamont Hill, who’s a CNN Political Commentator, as well as a professor at Morehouse College. And the last panelist was NYPD retired Police Chief, Phillip Banks, who also happens to be a Black man.

Now, this panel was mediated by a CNN commentator who started off by directing questions to Harry Houck, the retired NYPD detective. And he asked how Harry perceived the ‘BLM’ movement and what his thoughts were on the current civil unrest surrounding the state of american policing.

Harry then started waxing philosophic about how unfair it is for the police to be seen as ‘racists’, and said that the administrators of america’s police forces understand they have some problems, but those problems are being addressed. Then he said, that not only do the police have to own up to their problems, but the Black community has to own up to theirs as well.

Then he uttered a sentiment echoed by several white fascist henchmen and said: “Facts have to matter.” And mind you, this was a direct jab at the name of the BLM movement. Then, Henry pulled out a sheet of paper he got from his cronies in the NYPD, and started quoting some stats. He said that according to his buddies on the NYPD: “Blacks in New York City were responsible for 75% of all shootings, 70% of all robberies, and 60% of all violent crimes.” Then Harry said: “That’s why more Blacks go to jail than whites.”

Harry also said, he was tired of the public ‘second-guessing’ the ability of white cops to act in an unbiased manner.

Then Marc chimed in saying: “Cops should be second-guessed—just like every other public servant.” And then he proceeded to hotly contest Harry’s statement that Blacks are ‘predisposed’ to criminality.

Long story short, Marc put up a valiant fight, but ultimately, he and that token negro Phillip Banks, conceded that Harry was right about Blacks committing not only a disproportionately high amount of crimes, but the majority of overall crimes in america.

So, being the curious type of fellow I am, and in keeping with three other lies I debunked about Black men in the first post of this series, I went about doing some research to see if Black men actually do commit the most crimes in america. And here’s what I found…

First off, let’s take a look at america's national crime rates

According to FBI stats garnered by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2013 (the year these stats were last published), in terms of total arrests, 6,214,197 white people were arrested, and 2,549,655 Black people were as well.

In terms of arrests for rape, 8,946 white people were arrested for this crime, and 4,229 Black people were as well.

For aggravated assaults, 183,092 white people were arrested, and 98,748 Black people were as well.

For Burglary, 136,990 white people were arrested, and 61,709 Black people were as well.

For ‘violent crime’, 228,782 white people were arrested, and 151,627 Black people were as well.

For larceny-theft, 677,743 white people were arrested, and 284,358 Black people were as well.

For Motor Vehicle theft, 34,864 whites were arrested, and 15,960 Black people were arrested as well. (Remember the TV show ‘Bait Car’?)

For property crime, 855,225 white people were arrested, and 363,952 Black people were as well.

For Driving under the influence, 766,440 whites were arrested, and 113,982 Black people were as well.

Are you seeing a pattern here people?

Almost across the board, the ‘facts’ Henry Houck talked about prove that whites categorically commit more crimes in america than Black people do.

Now, I say almost, ‘cause there are two exceptions. In the category of ‘Murders and Negligent Manslaughter’, the number of whites arrested were 3,799 and the number of Blacks arrested were 4,379. And in the category of ‘Robbery’, 32,945 whites were arrested, and 44,271 Black people were as well.

Now, to the anglophiles of every color rejoicing and saying: “See—I told you it’s those low life Black bastards who kill and steal.” I’d like to tell you why these numbers are totally biased and down-right wrong…especially when it comes to the NYPD.

First off, pertaining to these numbers of murders and robberies, let me tell you which 10 cities are the most heavily policed in america…and when I say most heavily policed, I mean, the cities that have the most police presence in ratio to its number of citizens. The cities are as follows: 1.) Washington, D.C., 2.) Baltimore, MD., 3.) Chicago, IL., 4.) Wilmington, DE., 5.) Philadelphia, PA., 6.) New York, N.Y., 7.) St. Louis, MO., 8.) Miami Beach, FL., 9.) Birmingham, AL., 10.) Atlanta, GA.

Again, see a pattern here people?

The pattern I’m talking about is, these cities represent the ones in america with a heavy presence of Black residents. Also, we need to remember, post-integration, these were not only the cities Blacks were corralled into, but they’re the same ones whites left after we were (look up the term: ‘white flight’ sometimes).

So we know right off the bat, that ameirca’s national police force(s) are concentrated in these locales.

Now, being that New York City is number 6 on this list, let’s take a look at how some of Henry Houck’s pals in the NYPD get down when it comes to doing their jobs.

The american Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) did a study on the NYPD’s ‘stop-and-frisk’ policy, and here's what they found…in 2011, from the 685,724 people stopped, 53% were Black and only 9% were white. And out of roughly 686,000 people stopped, 89% were not convicted of any crime. Meaning, 9 out of 10 Black people stopped were innocent.

With that said, we should see how the aforementioned info. shows us that 90% of NYPD’s forces, and national police forces overall, are concentrated in Black neighborhoods. So guess where those cops are gonna’ make the majority of their arrests?

So while Tyrone is getting hand-cuffed, trailer-parkTony is getting away with stealing cars, burglarizing homes, raping women, committing violent crimes, etc.

And let me tell ya’ what happenes to Tony if by some miracle a cop is patrolling a white neighborhood.

In one study done by the ‘Social Science Research Network’, they found that in several american states Black people were incarcerated for convicted felony offenses 51% of the time, while whites convicted of felonies were incarcerated 38% of the time. So if Tony does get caught, more than likely, his crime(s) will be reduced to a misdemeanor and he’ll be back at his trailer park in time to eat his fried bologna sandwich for dinner.

Now, I said I’d only debunk one ‘Bald-faced lie’…but since I'm feelin' the skin I'm in, let’s go for two…

As of late, white pundits are saying that cops shoot more white people than Black people, so there’s no bigotry involved in american policing. But let me show you why that’s a completely bogus theory.

According to recent data, there’s 160 million more white folks in america than Black people. whites make up 62% of the population and roughly 49% of police officer shooting victims. Black people however, account for 24% of police shooting victims, while only making up 13% of this country’s population.

This means that Blacks are 3 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO GET SHOT AND KILLED BY A COP, THAN A WHITE PERSON! 

So don’t let whitey bamboozle you with that non-sense!

And I’ve said all that to say this…if you’re a Black man or woman reading this post, you must understand that EVERY facet of the american social order is engineered to make you hate yourself and everyone who looks like you, ‘til the day you die.

And convincing you that our people commit the majority of this country’s crimes, is yet another way white fascists have set about doing this.

So let’s break out of this anglophilic stupor that’s been bred into us, so we can seek out the truth…and I’m not talking about a white fascist truth, but several of our own melanated ones.

And like Sam L. Jackson said in Spike Lee’s film, ‘Do the Right Thing’: “That’s the double truth, Ruth.”

3 reasons why an ethnic war won't happen in america...


"The racist dog policeman must withdraw immediately from our communities, cease their wanton murder and brutality and torture of Black people, or face the wrath of the armed people."
                                         --Dr. Huey P. Newton, 1968 

On July 7th, 2016, right after americans got done celebrating ‘Independence Day’, a ‘BlackLivesMatter’ protest turned deadly when five police officers were killed, and nine other cops were injured in Dallas, Texas.

Overnight, the BlackLivesMatter organization(s) were labeled as terrorists. A short time later, a ‘Blue Lives Matter’ bill was signed into law behind cops fearing they’d face another bout of rightful payback…I mean, lethal retaliation(s) behind the killing of Alton Sterling.

Now, let me just say, from what I've seen over the course of several years, it’s standard operating procedure for cops to cry foul when one (or some) of them fall, even though they've been acting like trigger-happy klansmen in our communities.

So I wasn’t surprised to see the ‘Blue Lives Matter’ law pass. Hell, I didn’t even get mad behind cops and politicians taking the name of the BlackLivesMatter initiatives to bellyache about a couple of them getting sniped off, when they've clearly been murdering scores of Black men. If anything, the Blue Lives Matter law reminded me of the ‘Mumford Act’ that passed in 1967. This piece of California legislation prevented Black Panthers from carrying fire arms when those brothas decided to strap up and match arms with those badge-wearing bigots called cops.

But what did piss me off was a video I saw by the Black man who inspired me to write this Blog. In it, he argued that the retaliatory strike committed against cops was evidence of a mental illness on the part of Black people. Basically, he likened our vengeance to a knee-jerking reaction seen in codependent abuse victims. But then I had to remind myself that his psyche has been so thoroughly raped by white fascists and their social order(s), that he’ll be kept in a perpetual state of self-hatred ‘til the day he dies. As I said previously, in the paradigm of Black self-hatred, you always have to place the blame on Blacks and never acknowledge the white fascist maneuverings in anything.

Then I saw another video by a brotha named Carlos Kaigler. And he was basically beseeching Black folks not to retaliate any further against the cops for fear of starting some kind of ethnic (or race) war. *Side note: I don’t use the term ‘race’ in these matters, ‘cause there’s only one race, and that’s the human race. People are really talking about ‘ethnicity’ and ‘ethnic’ groups when they make these arguments, whether they know it or not.

Now, not only did Carlos’ pleas for forgiveness remind me of the cowardly stylings of so-called Black leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Jesse Jackson, but it had me seeing how his mind was also caught in the white fascist/christian trap of telling Black folks to default to methods of peaceful, non-violent resistance, lest our ‘uppity’ behaviors result in our feeling the sting of the plantation master’s lash.

So for any other Black person still thinking this way, I’d like to list 3 reasons why an ethnic war won’t happen in america.

Reason#3: If the american social order were to disintegrate into a state of all-out ‘war’, especially over an extended period of time, the elites could be put out of business.

We all need to understand, that the ruling elite constructed this social order as a means of staying in power. Thus, white fascists depend on John and Jane Q. Public to keep showing up at their jobs, paying their taxes and shopping at Walmart.

Hence, if the american social order were to devolve into the chaos of a full-fledged ethnic war, all that would come to an abrupt halt. Meaning, we’d no longer have a need for money, ‘cause whoever had a gun, or several guns, could just take what they wanted. And any normalcy behind people going to jobs would stop behind fears of being killed en route to work, collecting taxes would be close to impossible, etc. etc. 

So the elites will do whatever it takes to keep america’s unofficial ‘caste system’ alive and well. By any means necessary.

Reason#2: Behind Black americans fighting and winning their freedom from slavery, the elites know that defeating us won’t be easy.

The Gullah Wars, which were fought between 1739 and 1858, were the battles Black people waged against white fascists that freed us from slavery.

Now, what I was taught in the american (mis)educational system was Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation freed Black slaves in america. But that’s a bald-faced lie.

First off, Abraham Lincoln not only owned slaves but he was so low down, that he had hundreds of freed Black americans sent to a slave colony in Haiti to be ‘re-enslaved’. In addition, The Emancipation Proclamation was not recognized by america’s slave owning states. So that proclamation fell on deaf ears when it came to white slave owners and their plantations.

Now, as a testament to how gallantly we fought to free ourselves, one of the Gullah Wars most famous slave revolts called the ‘Stono Rebellion’, which took place on September 9th, 1739, near South Carolina’s ‘Stono River’, saw Black slaves fighting so fiercely that in 1740, that state passed something called the ‘Negro Act’. And this act actually mandated a ‘prohibition’ against slavery.

That’s how feared our ancestors were. And mind you, this was just one of hundreds of battles/revolts our people waged against whitey.

So white fascists understand that an all-out ethnic war with us, won’t be won in three easy steps. These inbreds know it would be more of an ordeal than a slaughter.

Reason#1: And the number one reason why an ethnic war won’t break out in america is actually twofold…first, too many white people’s lives would be affected and/or taken away, and second, if any kind of ethnic war was going to happen in this county, it would have happened already.  

With white birth rates having fallen below replacement levels and white-on-white crimes being responsible for 89% of caucasian deaths in america, the last thing whitey wants to do is go head up with us in a country where so many more of their lives could be lost.

And whites also understand that we’d not only fight to defend ourselves, but we’d be fighting with a furious anger mixed with a bitterly impassioned need for vengeance for all the injustices they’ve committed against us.

Additionally, if an ethnic war didn’t happen behind the Civil Rights marches, the Nation Of Islam’s and Malcolm X’s ragings against white people, the Black Panther’s revolutionary stance against cops, and/or Ferguson, Missouri’s extensive revolts, then that kinda' war ain’t gonna’ happen here.

Now, does this mean whitey’s not gonna’ try to get rid of Black people on smaller and more localized levels?

HELL NO!!

white fascists are gonna’ throw everything and the kitchen sink at getting rid of Black people on smaller scales. That’s why we’re being gentrified out of our neighborhoods, our water supplies are being poisoned, cops are shooting us down in droves, and last but definitely not least, that’s why white fascists blew up those levees in New Orleans that caused the Hurricane Katrina disaster. 

But regardless of that, I'll reiterate that no Black american should live in fear of an ethnic war jumping off here. And thankfully, our children didn’t. Cause if they had, they wouldn’t have revolted so effectively in Ferguson, Missouri, and got Mike Brown’s parents speaking before the United Nations to tell those officials about the domestic terror(s) being perpetrated on Black people in america.

And this is also the reason no Black person should feel obligated to show any kind of remorse over dead cops. Like Carlos Kaigler did in his video.  

Now, whether Micah Xavier Johnson committed that heroic act in Dallas or not, I say what our ancestors said about any oppressor meeting with a lethal resistance from the oppressed.

I say it’s justice.

Plain and simple.  

And no Black person in america, should be remorseful about finally seeing some of that

The cult of Black and white Cinematic Symbolism (Part 9)...3 reasons why Marvel comics turned Iron Man into a Black woman...


A couple of days ago, I looked at my Twitter page and came across an errant ‘tweet’ reading: ‘Exclusive: Marvel’s New Iron Man is a Black woman’.

I thought I’d read it wrong, so I looked at the tweet a second time. Then I clicked on the tweet’s link. It led me to a ‘CNN’ article stating that a new character named, ‘Riri Williams’, will be taking the place of ‘Tony Stark’ as the new face of Iron Man. Now, according to the article, Riri’s backstory is that she’s a science prodigy who enrolled in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) at age 15. And she came to Tony Stark’s attention by way of building an ‘Iron Man suit’ in her dorm room.

The article was written by Lisa Respers, a Black woman who’s a senior producer for CNN’s digital entertainment space, and she’s stationed in Paris, France. And they chose Lisa to write this article, so the world would think Black women universally agree with this decision.

After shaking my head for a minute, I uttered two words to myself: “It figures.”

With that said, let me give you 3 reasons why Marvel turned Iron Man into a Black girl…

Reason#3: Iron Man being a Black girl not only reinforces the stereotype of Black females being hyper-masculine, but it also makes the white feminist ideal of single womanhood more palatable to younger Black females.

In the 80’s and 90’s especially, Black women adopted the “I don’t need no man” mantra. And this was made popular to them by america’s white fascist social order, post-integration.

Uncle S(L)am showed and proved to Black women that he’d indeed take care of their food, clothing and shelter, under one condition: They couldn’t have a man in the house. This condition fostered the sentiment that Black women could be the mother AND father of their children, which further reinforces reasons why they’d never have a need for a man in their lives.

Also, when you think of iron, you immediately think of a substance that’s cold and inflexible. And these attributes are ones that white fascists want the world’s men to ascribe to Black women. Elites want the world’s men to think of Black women as emotionally unavailable, abrasive, argumentative and ultimately, unapproachable.

And ideally, white fascists want to keep Black women in three states of being—they want to keep them well-paid, oversexed and alone. And ‘Scandal’s’ Olivia Pope is a prime example of this.

Reason#2: Making Iron Man a Black girl promotes gender confusion and homosexuality to younger Black females.

Another consequence exacted on Black americans via the white elitist trick of integration, was Black women cohabitating with other Black women as a means of forming something resembling a traditional ‘nuclear family’. And post-integration, a lot of Black girls were raised in these households. Thus, this is the only kind of family they know. And more than likely, this is the same kind of ‘family’ they’ll create as adults.

Thus, for this kind of Black girl, reading this comic or seeing a movie with this version of Iron Man in it, will reinforce reasons why they should adopt a masculine ‘nature’. And what white elites are hoping to do, is get more Black girls feeling that they not only don’t need a man, but that they’re actually men themselves.

Thus, homosexuality and gender confusion go hand-in-hand.

Reason#1: And the number one reason Marvel comics turned Iron Man into a Black girl is…in an age where so many white women are doing everything they can to look like Black women, white fascists have got to denigrate the Black woman’s femininity, so the world’s men can be kept believing that white women are still the world’s prettiest.

California based model Priscilla Caputo, seen left, paid for several collagen lip injections over the course of three years. While she thought this would boost her career, her manic obsession with bigger, fuller lips caused her to over-inflate them to inhuman looking sizes.

Now, I’ll never forget how in my freshman year of high school, a sista openly said to me, “Man, God didn’t give us nothing, he gave us big lips and nappy hair…” And I didn’t respond, cause the american (mis)educational system taught me to feel the same way.

Fast forward to today, when literally millions of white women like Priscilla are getting butt and lip injections trying to look like the very people that young sista thought God had forsaken. It boggles my mind to see pics of white women ‘twerking’ and obsessively squatting themselves off in gyms to have bigger behinds, when we were told how gross and disgusting these physical features were supposed to be.

Now, the public at large might think this is a harmless trend, but this spells trouble for white fascists. And here’s why…

white fascism has conditioned nearly everyone in the free world to think of the white woman as the epitome of feminine beauty. So what happens when this woman spends millions of dollars trying to look like another type of woman?

And let me put that in more layman’s terms—what happens when white women show us that Black women are the world's most attractive females?

I’ll tell you what happens…it not only shatters the notion of the white standard of ‘classic’ beauty, but it says that everything we’ve been taught about the white fascist status quo is a lie.

But what’s even more detrimental to white fascists than this, is how this may affect the psyche of Black women.

See, if a Black woman realizes that she’s the epitome of feminine beauty, then a woman like Olivia Pope wouldn’t allow herself to be used like a sex toy for the gratification of a white man, who she thinks is god. And if that happens, then she would give a person like Fitzgerald Grant III an ultimatum: Either marry me, or we’re done having sex. Point blank, period.

And if this happens, Black women would see God in themselves more and in white people less. Thus, she’d be more liable to fight against the same patriarchal white fascists that white feminists want her to defend. She’d also see that the overwhelming majority of white feminists were not only seeking out and marrying the same oppressive white man they’d been railing against for years, but she’d understand how white feminists only speak out against misogyny when Black men are their targets.

Additionally, a Black woman who knows that she’s the standard of feminine beauty wouldn’t want to put someone else’s hair on her own. Nor would she want to bleach her own hair or skin. And she'd stop putting colored contacts in her eyes.

But even more frightening to the elites, is a Black woman who behind liking her looks, would want to create a family that looks more like herself.

And even more threatening, is a Black woman who’d want to marry someone who looks more like herself, a Black man.

So turning Iron Man into a Black girl basically keeps a new generation of young Black women thinking that their femininity will never equal that of a white woman’s. And this in turn, keeps them thinking that the white woman’s man, the white man, is still god.

So if you’re a Black woman reading this, I hope you now know that white women are telling you emphatically by their lip and butt injections, and obsessive tanning, that YOU are the world’s prettiest woman.

But here’s the real, real question: Will you ever think of yourself that way?

Can you come up out of your conditioned self-hatred enough to see that you are being acknowledged as the world’s prettiest woman?

Cause let me tell you, it’s IMPERATIVE that you do!

And it’s not only important for your own self-esteem, but it’s necessary for the very survival of the Black Diaspora.

And like Sam L. Jackson said in the Spike Lee movie, ‘Do The Right Thing’: “That’s the double truth, Ruth.”
