Philly's finest?


Folks, if you happen to notice that I have been putting on a little weight lately, it's because I am not getting as much exercise as I used to. You see I used to get my exercise by chasing racism all over the place, but lately I haven't been doing any chasing at all. That's because racism has not even been running. In fact, racism has been right in my face and daring me to do something about it. Sometimes it has been subtle and harder to detect, and sometimes, not so much. I think racism took offense to the whole "post racial" A-merry-ca thing.


Right here in my hometown, the people who are supposed to protect me have been infected with the the big "R" bug. Who knew that the boyz in blue saw things in black and white? I thought the men behind those badges were totally color blind. (That was meant to be a joke)

Poor Philly, we have really been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately. First the swimming pool fiasco, and now this. Pretty soon people are going to say that we are a racist city........*pause; pause; and type* the Boston/Birmingham of the 21st century. That's not good.


And another thing that's not good is that people who are supposed to be putting their lives on the line for each other (not to mention us) can't really trust each other because of the alleged atmosphere of racism in the department. (Oh field, stop it, the Police Chief is black for crying out loud, what else do you people want? ) Honestly, I don't care what color the police chief is. Black, white,green, yellow, red, or whatever. He should not tolerate the alleged incidents of racism that we heard about in his department.


It shouldn't have gotten to this point, but now that it has, let's hope that Philly's finest get to the bottom of this, and fast.


"Sgt. Shaun Butts, a veteran who attended a news conference announcing the lawsuit, said postings often allege that black officers who get promoted must have cheated on their exams."It's always quoted as 'We're all blue,'" Butts said. "But then it makes you think, 'Are we really all blue?'"



You tell me Shaun, you tell me.

I think every police department in the U.S. ought to be dismantled and remade as modern police departments.

It seems to me that it would be cheaper in the long run to buy out all current police officers rather than to pay all of the lawsuits that police departments face every year.

Why are we allowing this bs in this new century?

Yup, even the blue race can't get along with each other. No hope for the rest of us.


"I have been putting on a little weight lately, it's because I am not getting as much exercise as I used to. "

No, it's Karma. You still haven't done the naked run as you promised.

Racism has brought on a new feeding frenzy for so many disgruntled AmeriKKKans. Now it's so big and obese that it can't even run, much less pretend it wasn't in the room. I think it's stalking you.

"Pretty soon people are going to say that we are a racist city..."

Field, you have GOT to be kidding. Philly has 'always' been a racist city. I am convinced that Philly is a city that cannot be helped when it comes to racism, esp. when it comes to the police.

For instance, when Frank Rizzo was Chief of Police the men in blue were known as the racists in blue. Today, the police force still remain racists in blue, except the Chief of Police is Black!

Philly has a 'black' Chief of Police who allows racism to run wild in his own police department. Now that's sickening.

Houston said...

This is probably apropos of nothing, but... you remember that movie back in the late 50s, Tony Curtis and Sydney Portier were chained together and had to learn to cooperate in order to survive? I see America's Whites and Blacks that way: symbolically tied together. Unless they can figure out how to work t ogether, neither will get free.

Me? I'm mixed-race. When race is broken down into just the two groups, Black and white, I see both sides as too stupid to figure it out. Ultimately, my people are going to win.

The real struggle is not between Blacks and Whites, but between the haves and have nots. Race is a distraction.

"Race is a distraction."

Obviously, for certain people, and people of power who refuse to see all human beings equal regardless of skin color. You are singing to the choir here.

""Me? I'm mixed-race.""

So why is that so important? People usually say that to throw others off, or to distract them from what's going to be said next regarding race.

""I see both sides as too stupid to figure it out. Ultimately, my people are going to win.'

??? And what people would that be? Bi-racial and Melungeon? When you walk down the street, do certain people of power see you as bi-racial/Melungeon or do they see you as white like themselves?

Why do some biracials/multiracials are always trying to signify themselves in these situations if race is such an artificial construct or a distraction of some sort? Some people's half race or quarter race acknowledgment seems so selective only when convenient.

""The real struggle is not between Blacks and Whites, but between the haves and have nots. "

Now that’s a distraction, trying to down play racism with economics being the forefront.

So now you don't think for a minute "race" has been an irreversible assessor for this mass disproportion of wealth and opportunity for the last hundreds of years?

The simple class system might have been prevalent in various places around the world, including Europe before those haunting voyages to raid Africa - which now brought on the new discriminating appraisal system we now know so well as race. It doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Ask all the black people around the world who live in poverty while living among non-blacks who just happen to be the 'haves'. Try the American ghettos, try the Brazilian Favelas etc.

I'm not trying to pick a fight, I just don't have tolerance for color-blind rhetoric of any kind.

"Me? I'm mixed-race. When race is broken down into just the two groups, Black and white, I see both sides as too stupid to figure it out. Ultimately, my people are going to win."

It annoys me to no end to see how mixed-race people believe they've transended above and beyond the whole race issue. There aren't gonna be any winners in the contest between Whites and Blacks for genuine racial equality. Whites can't get over the fact that a people they've always seen as "inferior" can, will and are succeeding right before their eyes, and Blacks want to not only fight amongst one another, but then pin every single problem in the Black community on Whites while doing zero introspection whatsoever. We have a lot of work ahead of us that needs to be done, before things turn genuinely ugly.

And for that, we should turn to the various "conservatives" and Republican figures who are clamoring for a race war between Whites and Blacks. I can only assume that this will give rise to excuses for "restoring order to the inner cities" by "controlling the undesirable element". Any bets on how exactly the "Black problem" is gonna get "solved"?

Anonymous said...

The reason we point that out is as a children we were beat up by blacks and hounded by whites.

When I go places black people still call me a hi-yellow nigga, a 1/2 breed nigga. "We are black" but many black people hate our guts. They often say you ain't one of us. We ain't a brother, try hearing that.

The same for Whites they use the other side. "You ain't one of us and you ain't one of them. So who are you one of?

Would you ever forget when MLK was killed blacks people told you to run yellow nigga home because they were going to beat your ass because of your color. Try standing to that crowd it took some real standing up to deal with that shit. And I didn't run home. Try proving you are black.

White folk gave us the same treatment. "I'M BLACK". How would you feel if your own Hi yellow sister told you she would'nt be with my type (her own brother) because she hated white men, she hated herself.

Your own mom loved her father who was Irish but she didn't like men of my color (her own son)

Do you get the idea of the pain we have endured being a 1/2 breed when you are BLACK and not accepted by blacks. The pain leaves deep scares.

Not every one goes through the same thing, it just happened to me.

Filled Negro:

I assure you that when I am driving through the streets of West Philly when I return home - I an not worried about the police pulling up to me at a traffic light, drawing their guns and forcing me out of my car to rob me and steal my car.

You have a basic problem with SUPERIORITY ASSUMED TO AUTHORITY.

This in itself is not the problem as we SHOULD have superior expectations upon our authority figures (Even when they are locally elected Democrats).

My problem with you and those among your bloggers who are propagandists is that you accompany this assignment of high expectations upon the authority figures with NO EXPECTATIONS about the individual thugs on the street. When they act, attacking Black folks , Filled Negro you and others attribute this to "derivative behavior" which stems from how they were treated for 400 years. (Even though they were born in 1990)

I wish there was some organization that the street thugs could join in which when they go on their pirate attack you and other operatives can attack this ORGANIZATION, hoping that your shaming will force the organization to crack down upon them.

Think about it Filled Negro - the one unknown Republican lady who failed to delete an offensive remark on her Facebook page has gotten more scorn from the AfroSpear pro-Democrat propaganda network than the assortment of THUG KILLERS who are making this a "Bloody Summer" for Black people throughout the nation.

Do you ever sit back and reconcile yourself Filled Negro? I am tired of doing this for you.

Thanks for this Field. Reading your post made me check the site out and write up my thoughts. Here's my thought process, but before, let me tell the trolls something. Yo ASSume too much. If you go around this blog, you will see that we DESPISE these thugs, more than you do. I know it's difficult for you to see that black people are not the trash you assume we are, but whether you wake up out of your stupor or not, it's true.

Here's my thing. The site has racists, but I wouldn't say it's all racist. I would say that there are a lot of racists there. The comments over at CNN aren't all racist either.

I just think that lawsuits OBVIOUSLY don't mean a damned thing. We aren't getting anywhere. Another approach has to be tried.

I hear ya. It's too bad that Blacks are like that. But keep in mind that quite a few Blacks are racists themselves. It's one of the reasons Blacks will never be able to unify as a race against racism. Ironically, they are outraged about racism against Blacks in this country, but remain racists themselves. So you are not the only one some blacks find fault with because of the color of your skin, eyes, features, or hair.

There are black women who find fault not only with black men who date outside of their race, but they find fault with black women who are brown to light complexion. Their attitude is, 'if you aren't dark skin, you are the enemy'. Some have formed support groups to help recruit and isolate themselves into a little black niche of sort.

The black race is fractured into numerous shards of prejudice, self-hatred, and hatred of each other, that it is clearly visible to the most casual observer! So, don't feel alone, you have a lot of company. But always remember, that it's THEIR problem, not yours.

Anon 2:30, you just worked my last good nerve. Are you saying that nobody non black should vote for a black candidate? Because you are certainly saying the opposite, that black people should only vote for black candidates. That's just ignorant.

We could list all day black people in high places who have screwed all over their black consituents. I hear Marion Berry is in trouble again. Black people in DC agree with you and I'd say they have the representation that they deserve.

If you allow yourself to be deceived by race or class, you will always be outside looking in.

Mixed race anon is right. If poor people in this country ever join forces, they will kick all of our asses. But it won't happen because black and white folks, at a minimum, are too invested in keeping conflict alive.

If character doesn't figure into your choices about people, you will spend a lifetime being disappponted.

And while I'm talking, let's talk ab out The Negro Chief Parks who alllowed off duty black police officers to provide security services for Death Row Records and Suge Knight. That's like off duty NYPD providing security for a mafia crime family.

I voted for Barack Obama primarily because of the Iraq war. I coudn't bear another four years of Republicans and thankfully a whole lot of non black people agreed with me.

That's very true. But my point was that nothing in the police department of Philly has changed since the days of Frank Rizzo. I mean NOTHING. I am still amazed that some Philadelphians consider the men in blue "Philly's finest." The white officers are as racist as the members of the Valley Swim Club.

Has the black Chief of Police been rendered powerless by the city to do anything about it? Or, is the Chief of Police an uncle tom?

The answer is "both".

BMWA said...

The Cincinnati PD has a pretty good track record for racism. The Chief Tom Streicher, once refered to one of his Sargents as a N-word. His justification was. He was using him as an example for what he might have to face on the streets. The former FOP president Keith Fangman has also used racial slurs against Blacks and Hispanics. Lets not forget Stephen Roach the cop who was accused but not prosecuted for shooting an unarmed man(Timothy Thomas) setting off the riots in 2001. IMO all PD's have some covert racism that eventually surfaces. That's why I dont trust themas far as I can spit on them.

Everyone seems to forget that the police department is a runoff of the slave patrollers back during slavery. Of course, they are going to be racist in every department.

You know, Anon, I've been around for years. I've seen blacks so white that they could've passed had they chose to.

And I might add: the communities in which I lived saw them as black, and nothing else.

I can't speak to your individual experience, but I don't see the likes of Hally Berry, or any lighter skin black receiving the kind of treatment from the fam that you say you're receiving.

I've got to ask: Where in these United States do you venture? In what cities, and what communities, are you hearing these remarks?

My sister lived in the ghetto for years, and they don't come no more high-yellow than she, and she never received this kind of treatment at the hands of her black people.

Again, I have to ask: If you're as you say you are, perhaps the fault lies within you--how are you presenting yourself (hopefully, not better than thou) as you move among us?

last time i checked it was illegal to threaten the life of the prez or for that matter threaten to take the life of anyone?

if this has in fact occurred why has the secret service not made any arrests?

stretching things aren't we.....bit of a drama queen?

When I was growing up I lived in a neighborhood where some black folk's could pass for WHITE, they lived side by side in nice home's. but, they never ever gave the impression that, they thought they were better than the dark skinned black's.

The person who made the statement about being called a (HIGH YELLOW NIG) their is something very strange about you! you seem to enjoy using the N word, and plus you write with a SPIRIT of RAGE! and I do not believe for a minute that, BLACK FOLK'S have been beating up on you like that, STOP LYING on AFRICAN AMERICAN'S!

Are you what they call a TROLL!!!!!!!!!

Anony 2:46 am, be assured there are "light" skinned and black biracial people who actually think they're some sort of victims of the black community. I also agree with BD and Granny.

Anony 4:50 AM, I realize my previous insomnia suffering rant may seem anti biracial, but I'm not. While I am not trying to negate your life experience (considering the age group and location), I don't think your experience has anymore damaging effects over the ones of the average dark-skinned Afrocentric looking black people who were taunted with derogatory names by other black people (slave descendants) in the black communities.

I think most honest black people today might find your life experience an exception. Black people and the black comm. have always accepted black biracials more than any other racial group in history. It also appears that from our oppressed/damaged history, even among each other today, it seems socially beneficial to appear to have a drop of something other, than to appear "untouched - straight of Africa". Therefore, your claim does seem hyper sensitive, or even suspicious.

My father is also biracial, but he has never been anything other than an average looking light skinned black man to other black people. He rarely talks about race, but he sees himself as a black person, nothing better over other blacks and nothing less. He never looked for any kind of special treatment, so if a derogatory name were to be called, I doubt there would be such disappointing feelings as you experienced. When I was a little girl, the only thing odd I've heard black people call him was "Dane man". It didn't appear to be derogatory, because black men around my area would test each other, talk jive, laugh, call each other names and give each other the hand moves afterwards.

Anony, I have a feeling there is a deeper issue going on with you, which has nothing to do with the names black people may have called you. I think you need to be up front and honest with yourself first and foremost.

Anony 7:15 PM,

Go cry yourself a river.

"Would you ever forget when MLK was killed blacks people told you to run yellow nigga home because they were going to beat your ass because of your color. Try standing to that crowd it took some real standing up to deal with that shit. And I didn't run home. Try proving you are black."

Anon, I don't doubt your experience. There are other Blacks who have had similar experiences to yours- It doesn't mean that it happens to everyone but it DOES happen to people within and without the Black Community. I have seen it, and heard it so I know it happens.

I don't know what alternate reality are living in but I co-sign with Anon 12:56. I seem to recall that Mariah Carey caught a mountain of garbage for no other reason than she is half black and half white. Even though she has done more for inner city kids than most so-called entertainers, her pedigree is all some negroes here cared about.

As I've seen how black people treat mixed kids. It doesn't happen to everyone but it happens and I've seen it. Negroes make fun of folks based on skin color, hair texture, speech pattersn, etc.

Do none of you recall "Good and Bad Hair" from School Daze? Did you think that Spike made that up? C'mon, people.

"I seem to recall that Mariah Carey caught a mountain of garbage for no other reason than she is half black and half white."

From who?

Any evidence of this?

"As I've seen how black people treat mixed kids."

Yeah so have I.

Lightskinned greeneyed black women (and men) usually have a line of darkskinned blacks chasing after them for dates. And lightskinned black women are often stuck up and self centered because of all the attention they get from darksinned men.

"Do none of you recall "Good and Bad Hair" from School Daze?"

Sure do.

The lightskinned women thought they were better and prettier than the darskinned sisters.

Called them "jigaboos" and "black nappy beasts".

What are you talking about?

Many thanks for your co-sign, WCS. Other the Anon that everyone was skeptical of, I was beginning to think that I was the only one on this blog who had ever seen it, or heard it. I wonder if personality sometimes comes before the principle of truth on this blog.

Some things are just generational and regional. Like when part of your life, the one drop rule is enforced or Jack and Jill in some regions were a cornucopia of Black folks and at others, you had to take their word that they were.

The real struggle is not between Blacks and Whites, but between the haves and have nots. Race is a distraction.

Amen. The reason why Philadelphia is such a racist city is because it is a white working class city. In the future it is going to be about class not race. Mark my words. The haves versus the have nots and the white have nots will give the black haves hell.

I SAID "WHITE & BLACK"

The reason we point that out is as a children we were beat up by blacks and HOUNDED by WHITES.

"Beat up by blacks & HOUNDED BY WHITES"

The same for "WHITES" they use the other side. "You ain't one of us and you ain't one of them. So who are you one of?

"WHITE FOLK" gave us the same treatment. "I'M BLACK".

"NOT EVERY ONE" goes through the same thing, it just happened to me.

AON: "WHITE RACIST GUY" A.K.A. MR R GO DO "SOMETHING WHITE" LIKE SURFING OR CHASING BLONDE BABES WITH BIG BOOBS".

La♥Incognita, If I could only write with the "STYLE & GRAMMAR" you write with, I can tell you worked very hard to get an education I have no doubt about it. I would be one smart "N-WORD"

I wrote "BLACK & WHITE". FN was the only one that read what I wrote, maybe I could have written it better.

That's why I wrote the following with the "Spirit of Anger" ...

I know someone will post a commentary about what I just wrote, they will disect and justify why everything I said was way out and some kind of self pity.

Go right ahead and explain it, You will, I've heard it all before! So take your best shot at least you don't get your ass beat up on FN.

I love you all on this blog and we will all be back tommorrow to do this same shit.

AON: "RACIST WHITE GUY GO DO SOMETHING WHITE, PLEASE".

P.S. I'll raise ya

1.Daryl Gates,
1.Rodney King,
1.Willie Williams
1.Benard Parks
1.Bratton (Ex NYC PD)
1 Suge Knight

Beat that hand!

Peace!
