As we are remembering the 40th anniversary of the Detroit riots (or rebellion..depending on who you are talking to) this week we need to have an open discussion on how Blacks are using racism as an excuse to get ahead in the United States.
Yes, I know that racism exists and I often will say no one wins the race in racism. However, there are those in our community who strongly feel that Blacks cannot be racists.
For example, Ron Daniels from the Black World Today site stated the following:
By definition, racism is the capacity/power to translate prejudice/bigotry into custom, policy or law. Black people have not had the predisposition or the power to oppress White people in this country. Hence the notion of "Black racism" is a contradiction in terms.
Mr. Daniels is a frequent visitor here in the City of Detroit. He is always invited to come speak at events sponsored by Detroit City Councilwoman Jo Ann Watson. Oftentimes, Mr. Daniels spew his hatred of Whites and even Black Republicans to promote his Black Superiority message.
This is the reason why Detroit has not healed after 40 years. We are still divided in this region and because lines have been drawn across racial barriers we still use race as an excuse to overcome our obstacles.
Detroit has many opportunities. Blacks and Whites who reside in Detroit need to stop looking at the color of the skin but the content of a person's character. What happens if a Black woman bypasses other Black women and go to a club with their White girlfriend? Is she selling out her race? Or is that person looking beyond the color of skin?
We brag about how Detroit is home to the Black Grassroots movements. However, these same Black Grassroots movements have done nothing but produce a generation of derelicts. They hate other races of people, yet, I have caught these same race hustlers at the casino gambling, in strip joints and even selling drugs to their own people. They preach about Black people need to stick together but their actions are different.
If a Black person tells the truth -- namely, that in 2007, 99% of Black problems are self-inflicted -- he is, like Bill Cosby and Thomas Sowell, dismissed as an Uncle Tom. If a white person tells the truth -- namely, that with a 70% illegitimacy rate, no amount of government hand-outs will do anything but provide the cancer victim with a very expensive band-aid -- he’s condemned as a racist.
That to me sounds confusing. However, Black race hustlers are doing this right now in Detroit. As a former "progressive liberal" I can account how many times I have blamed White people for Black people's actions.
When Blacks say they wish to have a dialogue with Whites, it only means that they want a forum at which to bash Whites. You know this to be true.
There is such a thing as white producing racism. However, what Blacks refuse to acknowledge is that Whites are intolerant of crime and the creeps who commit it, be they Black thugs or poor White trash. The latter are those lowlifes who form Aryan gangs; tattoo themselves with skulls and swastikas; and produce, distribute and use methamphetamines. I don’t know a single White person who isn’t ashamed to be of the same race as these vicious cretins.
But if a person such as myself who will say that the promiscuity, drug use and illiteracy is plaguing the Black underclass, I am told that I am blind, lost or even an sellout. The real shame should be that millions of Black children are fatherless; that their taste in music is for anything that’s crude, lewd and loud; that their role models are too often basketball players who make more babies than baskets; whose language skills are embarrassingly abysmal; and that, although most of the street punks are peddling drugs for roughly the minimum wage, they regard it as a worthier, more manly pursuit than working at a 7/11 or, God forbid, going to church, school or a library.
The Black Grassroots/Black civil rights leaders and Black clergy allow this foolishness to go on in the community. When was the last time you heard the NAACP have a campaign to tell our brothers to pull their pants up in public or the National Urban League tell our sisters to comb their hair before leaving the house so they can keep those rags off their heads?
Let me the first to tell you the truth. I used to be a Black Supremacist. Because Black Supremacy is deeply rooted in Detroit you can see how various religion or cults have sprouted up. Black supremacy, as with supremacism in general, is rooted in ethnocentrism and contains varying degrees of racism and xenophobia. Associations of black supremacy with calls for Black Cultural Power, ethnic cleansing and racial separation are common, but not necessarily intrinsic.
I cannot begin to tell you the number of Black people living in Detroit that consider Black supremacy acceptable because of its message about Black self-respect, Black self-sufficiency and Black economic improvement. We should be able to do that without hating others.
It is very easy for young Blacks to get caught up in this type of thinking. Whether they joined the 5% Nation, Nuwuabians, Nation of Islam, Nation of Yahweh, Ausar-Auset Society or the Rastafari movement (and I studied under every single one of these groups with the Nuwuabians being the longest) the pseudo-science can sound real.
Most of these Black organizations (civil, religious, or grassroots) that are supposed to stand up for Black people (supposedly) are built on fear, intimidation, racism and exploitation. Sexual exploitation is ALWAYS at the forefront of these types of groups. Guaranteed. If you are not having sex with your peer(s) you are having sex with small children, boys and girls as well as selling them for profit. Bi-sexuality, homosexuality, feminism and phedophila is extremely rampant in these types of groups and this is why I separate myself from these types of organizations.
It does not matter what church, civil rights organization or conscious rap group you belong to you are doing things that you have no business doing. One person in the New Afrika movement told me that Black men should not only be married to a woman but have several women on the side because this is how it has always been done in Mother Africa. It is not in the nature of a Black man to settle down with one woman because that is the ways of the White man and his culture.
I guarantee you the leader(s) of a Black organization (civil, religious or grassroots) is practicing immorality to the highest degree. After being involved in this type of movement for almost 20 years I have seen and heard first hand of these types of behaviors. Think about it. Any Black Church that supports the liberal agenda like homosexuality (the United Church of Christ and their affiliates), welfare, failing public schools and the likes are normally supported by Democrats politically. That is why you often hear in our community "it does not matter what is going on in the pastor's or CEO's bedroom." (1) It does matter because if you are whore in your bedroom with different people you will be a whore in public and (2) if you go both ways (bi-sexual) that too will eventually come out. It always does. These Black churches or Black organizations do not push for prayer in schools (they tell individuals to pray to their own God), they do teach students abstinence (they give out condoms in schools) and will not speak out against the quality of education in the failing public schools (that is the government's job to do this...a tax paying babysitting service).
Some of these Black organizations justify supremacist assertions with purported qualities of melanin based on distortions of scientific fact or speculation. This contention is known generally as "Melanin Theory", an agenda that has no scientific basis whatsoever. The central idea of the "Melanin Theory" is that the levels of melanin in dark skin naturally enhance intelligence and emotional, psychic and spiritual sensitivity and physical prowess.
Believers in melanin theory claim that the greater concentration of cutaneous melanin functions as a superconductor of sound and heat energy. Some assert that it can absorb electromagnetic radiation, others that it can convert light and magnetic fields to sound; that it can process information without reporting to the brain; and, further, that it is the chemical basis for what is commonly called "soul".
They also claim that, because neuromelanin, which is found in the substantia nigra (in Latin, literally "black substance") of the human brain, plays a role in the transmission of neuronal impulses, higher levels of melanin in skin enable nerve synapses to fire more quickly and efficiently as well, thereby enhancing the natural athleticism of blacks. However, no direct correlation between race and the level of melanin in the substantia nigra has been observed.
For example of this type of racist foolishness, psychiatrist and writer Frances Cress Welsing, express the same idea by their use of the term "hue-man" instead of "human,". Welsing is the author of "The Cress Theory of Color Confrontation" and "The Isis Papers: The Keys to the Colors", which in part ascribes certain purported, inherent and behavioral differences between blacks and whites to a "melanin deficiency" in whites:
On both St. Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, the white male gives gifts of chocolate candy with nuts…. If his sweetheart ingests "chocolate with nuts," the white male can fantasize that he is genetically equal to the Black male…. Is it not also curious that when white males are young and vigorous, they attempt to master the large brown balls, but as they become older and wiser, they psychologically resign themselves to their inability to master the large brown balls? Their focus then shifts masochistically to hitting the tiny white golf balls in disgust and resignation—in full final realization of white genetic recessiveness (text is taken from the Isis Papers).
Welsing also claims that the prevalence of high blood pressure among African Americans is due to the fact that melanin exchanges "black photons" with other electrons and, therefore, picks up the negative energy vibrations from white people.
While such garbage is being published Blacks in our community eat this type of racist bulls*** and use it to make themselves feel good.
Former North Carolina State University professor Kamau Kambon received applause from the Black audience at a forum on Hurricane Katrina media coverage at Howard University Law School when he suggested that the solution to Black problems was to "exterminate the white people." I will not even get into Malik Zulu Shabazz from the New Black Panther Party.
Most of these Black organizations are tied in with socialism. The Michigan Welfare Rights Organization is an off-shoot of the National Welfare Rights Organization who later became ACORN, another radical liberal organization. The MWRO fights water shut offs in the urban community. Not one time that this organization teaches homeowners prevention tactics to stop their water from being shut off. They feel that local government should just turn on people's water, even if they have not paid. Most of the Detroit City Council are made up of Socialist activists. They preach about Black power and discuss in public how Whites are suppressing Blacks in the political arena. All are myths and should be dismissed.
Black supremacy is viewed by human rights organizations as equivalent to the white supremacy movement.
Most White folks in this country are not racist. I find more hatred coming from Black people in my own community than White people. In their heart, they agree with black comedian Chris Rock when he says, “I love black people, but I hate niggers,” even if they themselves are not allowed to make such an honest declaration.
When we see Black kids with the top of their baggy pants drooping somewhere south of their butts, annoying people with their ear-splitting boom boxes, saying “they be” when they mean “they are,” and we pretend that theirs is a different, but equally fine culture as our own, we’re no better than those enablers who give money to drug addicts or booze to alcoholics.
According to the Black Grassroots activists it is OK for children to split their verbs because they are speaking a dialect. I have even heard Molefi Asante from Temple University say the same thing. How ridiculous.
When Detroiters finally stop patronizing loafers, louts and criminals, stop encouraging people who were born 120 years after the Emancipation Proclamation, 20 years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act, to pretend that their sloth and ignorance are the fault of Whites, only then will Black Detroiters will come one step closer to having that colorblind society they claim they want.
