That's not the Gulf Of Mexico


in the picture you are seeing. That's Nigeria. And apparently they have had their own environmental disaster long before all that "black gold" started spilling into the Gulf.

I read the following story over at The Root, and I do believe that it's cut and paste worthy:

"It's a truth universally acknowledged that in the news media that one missing white girl equals half a dozen dead black girls or 100 dead Muslims or 1,000 Africans with AIDS. The missing white girl will always get front-page coverage while death and disease striking men and women of color will be relegated to the inside pages, below the fold. Wikipedia even has an entry for it: Missing white woman syndrome.

It's a sad fact that this rule applies also to American oil spills. While everyone is now aware of the massive leak off the coast of Louisiana, in the Gulf of Mexico, only now is the U.S. news media beginning to notice in print the 50 years of environmental devastation inflicted in Nigeria. According to the Times story, oil spills equal to the Exxon Valdez spill have occurred every year for the past five decades.

''The oil spews from rusted and aging pipes, unchecked by what analysts say is ineffectual or collusive regulation, and abetted by deficient maintenance and sabotage," the Times article said. "In the face of this black tide is an infrequent protest--soldiers guarding an Exxon Mobil site beat women who were demonstrating last month, according to witnesses--but mostly resentful resignation.''

''Small children swim in the polluted estuary here, fishermen take their skiffs out ever farther--there's nothing we can catch here,'' said Pius Doron, perched anxiously over his boat--and market women trudge through oily streams.

''There is Shell oil on my body,'' said Hannah Baage, emerging from Gio Creek with a machete to cut the cassava stalks balanced on her head.." [Article]

Hannah, it's just too bad for you that you weren't born on A-merry-ca's Gulf Coast. But, then again, maybe it wouldn't have made any difference for you. Just ask the parents of Mitrice Richardson.

PSA: It feels good to be home. I missed you guys...well, some of you. :)

This is why your blog, my blog and thousands of other Black run blogs are so important, Mr. Field. So that we can learn what Shell oil is doing to the people of Nigeria and so people won't forget that Mitrice is still missing.

Great post and welcome back.

What up family. How you're doing Field? I got news. As you know Glenn Beck is having his March on Washington , the same day as Dr.King. The Urban League, NAACP, and Al Sharpton's NAN are having a counter-protest.Spread the word. Some of the folks on Kos have already lease busses.Here's the address so you can get some information.

Welcome back, Field. Where have you been?

I am truly bothered by Mitrice missing and no one has said much about her. Why hasn't Al Sharpton or NAACP come down hard on the police?

Oh yes, Shell and other oil companies have been destroying the environments for a long time. This time it is the Gulf and this time it will be a terrible mess that man will not be able to fix.

We must get away from dirty toxic crude oil. At least, we should cut out deep water drilling. It's destroying the environment that feeds us.

Yes Val, we have to stay on the Mitrice Richardson story, because if we don't no one else will.

I am still waiting on AfroSpear to give me the formula notating how many "Street Pirate On Black" homicides are equal to ONE Police On Black homicides?


Let's logically look at your comparison between American oil company governance and that which is in Nigeria.

* The oil companies in Nigeria cut a check directly to the CENTRAL GOVERNMENT as they are not drilling on "PRIVATE PROPERTY" but instead on Government land. The conflict in the Delta region is because the local people receive little benefit as the central government misappropriates the profits elsewhere in the nation, leaving the locals POOR.

* Despite your claims that American oil firms undercut American government regulation for their own interests - WE HAVE MANY TIMES THE NUMBER OF PIPELINES here in America without the catastrophic leaking that you point out in Nigeria.

I realize that from this story many of you have the view "SEE this is what the OIL COMPANIES do when there is no regulatory regime. They are going to pursue their own interests, damn the people".

I have a new term "Regulatory Bigots". Just as there will never be a point where the natural risks of a potentially dangerous industry are totally controlled some of you will NEVER reach the point when you feel that there is enough REGULATION.

- an accident happens - WE NEED MORE REGULATION.

- if there is abundant REGULATION already in place you return back to the time when your adversary was in power and look at the REGULATIONS that they FAILED TO ENFORCE

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER will you reach the point of seeing that regardless of what you cook up in the legislature and the courts - there remains some RISK. The only place were THERE IS NO RISK is in the FACTORIES THAT ARE SHUT DOWN in Detroit and Cleveland. Then you all will be focusing upon the risk of having your foot cut on the broken glass from the windows that the kids throw rocks through.

Hathor said...

FN,
Even PBS has had documentaries about the ecological damage done to Nigeria from oil drilling, it has included more than just oil spills.
Black Looks has had articles over the past three years about the battles that have ensued in Nigeria, because of oil. It is much more than a few people stealing oil for fuel.
Here are a few links.

Val:

What SHELL is doing to the people?

What about how the corrupt government of Nigeria is failing to govern within their nation?

In a long running debate with a good friend of mine - he points out that Chevron(?) killed Nigerians as they demanded that NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT FORCES be deployed to protect their facilities from attack by angry locals.

REALLY? Chevron killed them????

Again the Nigerian Government is the controlling legal authority. THEIR TROOPS did the killing.

The only reason why my good friend (my best man at my wedding in fact. The one who I went to Cuba with to check out his savior Fidel Castro) and many of you other leftists hold the positions that you do is because YOU are not directly involved with any industries which force you to make tough economic decisions which have trade offs.

YOU DON'T WANT OIL??? Fine!! You revert back to the original GREEN ENERGY - hunting and gathering.

Even if we take away oil based fuels. There are lubricants, medicines, coatings, chemicals that we use on a daily basis that need petroleum.

YOUR present standard of living is a function of this evil oil.

I assure you that you have used some of the oil that once flowed through the LEAKY NIGERIAN PIPELINES. Little different than the WHITE FOLKS IN THE NORTH during slavery times in America who used COTTON picked by the hands of the enslaved African in the South.

Thank you Filled Negro for your blog and other AfroSpear blog for pointing out "Capitalistic Consumer Co-conspirators"

Despite the fact that 3 people were murdered in Baltimore over Father's Day weekend ALL LOYAL NEGROES are asked to come to the area on August 28 to join in on a PROTEST against Glenn Beck so that Kings name is not soiled????? WTF?

*King is soiled by the people who are TERRORIZING Black people in our own communities

*King is soiled by the monthly MURDER that takes place on MLK Jr Blvd or Joseph Lowery Bvd or Joseph Boone Blvd or most recently Ralph d Abernathy Blvd in Atlanta where a store owner KILLED a street pirate that tried to rob his tattoo shop

Kid it is clear that you are clueless.

KEEP GOING THROUGH!!!
After you have been exhausted from exclusively fighting the enemies that your fellow bigots can unite around yet you STILL have enemies that you are not willing to address cutting your throats inside your communities THEN you will realize the emptiness and fraud of your actions.

If my goal was to be LIKED by you I would be sitting in the row of chairs that you have assembled for those who like to THROW INDICTMENTS.

Unfortunately Hathor - the world is far more complex than what your pride that you have "CLEAN HANDS" affords to you.

It is hard for you to see that you are not traveling new territory? So many ANGRY REVOLUTIONS have been initiated by people who point out the same perpetual injustices that you do.

When they take the seat of power they see that they now need to make the tough decisions.

For you all it is easier to indict the OUTSIDER - Shell - than to look toward the GOVERNMENT of Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea to see that the oppression over people in the context of OIL exploration is NOT just caused by OIL COMPANIES. CORRUPT MEN who look just like the masses who run the GOVERNMENTS have naphtha on their hands as well.

If nothing else Hathor - take a step back and consider the PATTERNS of your thoughts that are applied to nearly each and every situation that comes across your desk. The LEFT is always throwing out INDICTMENTS, retaining their position on the "moral high ground". Yet your standard of living is nearly exclusively based upon receipt of the very resources that you condemn.

Green is but a GOVERNMENT ENFORCEMENT ACTION. Without MORE POWERFUL government, imposing itself upon our economic liberties - boot on the neck and all - there will be no Green Economy.

It seems that you'd rather me shut up than to point out these facts to you.

"The LEFT is always throwing out INDICTMENTS, retaining their position on the "moral high ground"."

It's amazing to me that you can write this bull$hit with a straight face.

JUST FOR INSTANCE, George Bush ran up the federal deficit more in 8 years than the previous 42 Presidents combined, expanded Medicare and got us into two unnecessary wars at the tune of $5 billion per month.

Yet we didn't hear shit from any tea partiers or free market libertarians until Obama got in office.

Instead of calling out "missing white women syndrome," the black community simple needs to copy it. It's time to start treating little black girls like they are worth their weight in gold. Instead, the issues of black women are usually lost in the mix of Jena Six and other type issues. How much marching and coverage did Jena Six get in comparison to Dunbar village?

The Dunbar Village criminals are locked up in jail and doing big time, right?

In Jena, LA white kids jump and beat up a black kid and nothing happens to them.

Black kids retaliate and get put in jail for attempted murder.

There is no comparison between the two incidents.

So stop trying to act there is.

You are right - I DON'T KNOW YOUR "individual" standard of living.

Thus I was not speaking of this.

I DO KNOW about your shared standard of living per your presence on the Internet to exchange your views with people you'll never meet (unless Filled Negro pays for a corporate jet that runs on Green Energy to pick us all up and have a Field-Negro convention)

Every word that you type travels across more than $60 billion of electronic switching equipment, most of it financed by CORPORATE BONDS

Every character that you type flows across the stolen land of the United States via fiber optic cable. Do you ever wonder how many Native American's bones were sliced in half as the corporate fiber installers trenched across the whole of America?

My basic point is that despite the fact that YOUR INDIVIDUAL HANDS are not soiled with the caustic fluids that CAPITALISTIC EXPLOITATION drip upon those with direct access YOU INDEED assume benefit from their (mis)deeds.

You need to look around the world where there IS no capitalistic exploitation (Chad) and make note that they also happen to not have Internet or water that comes out of the wall when they turn on their spigot.

CF why when whites commit crimes against blacks or other whites YOU DON'T CARE! When blacks do it to each other you want draconian measures taken or you think it's funny.I think that anyone that commits a crime SHOULD BE PUNISHED!Most murders are done by people of the same race and usually a aquaintance or a relative.

Let's look at some facts N***ers and not born, they are made.Blacks got the legal right to vote in 65'. When I went to vote in Cleveland in 2004 there were only three voting machines.A voting machine consisted of a suitcase with a light and a punchpin.HOW THE FUCK CAN IT BE BROKE! J.KENNETH BLACKWELL did that shit.EVERYONE IN CLEVELAND WENT TO WORK LATE THREE HOURS. That has never happened in the city of Cleveland.I AM NOT SAYING THIS SHIT FOR MY HEALTH. Elderly black men stood in line with me saying that they had their "roscoe" and thay wanted to use it on Blackwell. People cried.We felt like we were left alone in the woods. The county Cleveland is in ,Cuyahoga is the largest black county in the state.

As yourself a few questions:

How many whites are excuted for murdering blacks.If you kill a white person ,YOU GET EXCUTED.Name five whites excuted for killing blacks.

Why was drugs dumped only in black areas?

The comment from the Godfather of leaving drugs only in black neighborhoods,based on the Appalachin meetings.

Kid - I live in Metro-Atlanta.
FULTON COUNTY GEORGIA where Atlanta is housed is the BEST place for someone to commit murder and not get executed.

You fail to make note of this undercurrent.

When Whites kill Blacks in Georgia it is typically in one of these highly populated LEFTIST counties that don't execute.

As the AJC article which was attempting to expose the unfairness in the D.P. unintentionally pointed out - RURAL, conservative counties dole out the D.P. at higher rates. White who kill WHITES are executed. BLACKS who kill Whites in these places are executed.

In your fraud THIS is what you can't accept.

Why was drugs dumped only in black areas?
Because this is where the Drug Dealers choose to sell to their own community.

The comment from the Godfather of leaving drugs only in black neighborhoods,based on the Appalachin meetings.

Then you should round up some Black or Hispanic drug dealers that ONLY sell into White communities to balance things out.

CF if you aren't going to stand up for my rights,THEN GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY WAY!

You damn right black people are the problem, black people like you ,Jesse Lee Peterson,a pimp like Michael Steele , a guy that with the help of Republican Don King robbed his own brother in law Mike Tyson.

Name one black republican that contributed to th ewelfare of black people in America. You would have to go back further than Frederick Douglass.

CF,
I am not impressed with your usage of techno speak.

I would say my connection uses no more energy that if I made a piece of toast, if that much. If I make a phone call, that uses the same infrastructure. The energy I use in my household and how I drive determines my energy foot print. You are the one who says that my life style is creating much havoc on the world or that I don't understand how I impact upon this planet. This I say, you can not know.

I am not a person who thinks my sh*t doesn't stink. That I can live on earth without leaving a trace, but I have lived without the amenities or benefits of oil and know how to start a fire to do more than just BBQ.

Kid, I was stationed in Cleveland while I was in the Coast Guard. It was 84-85 and I was in Cleveland one month when a black woman and her two children were firebombed and killed after being moved into Section 8 housing right in the middle of a white ethnic neighborhood called "Slavic Village".

The firebombers were never found or arrested.

No protests, marches or national media coverage.

And we can pretty much guess who those black boys were cuddling under that tree which started the entire racial riff in the first place. Talking smack to white boys about it didn't help either. A lot of those "black man's mission fighter" black women marching in those hot black t-shirts didn't even figure that part.

Let me ask you a question Kid:

Can you detail what ACORN has ever done to make ONE BLACK PERSON "UN-poor"?

How do we judge the EFFECTIVENESS of ACORN besides their overwhelming success of running "Get Out The Black Vote For The Democrats" campaigns?

If you ever leave Cleveland come to Atlanta. I will show you the Vine City and Pittsburg sections of the city. They both have more CAMPAIGN SIGNS per block than most other areas of the city. Ironically these other areas are better kept and thus their community standards would disallow so much signage all over the place.

Ironically in these two places is GROSS POVERTY. They are functionally "Poverty HARVESTING AREAS FOR VOTES". If I were an elected official from these areas which are the "Killing Fields" for Black bodies and Black dreams I would be EMBARRASSED to put my campaign sign up as an INCUMBENT.

Rough me up if it gets the anger out of you Kid. I can take it.

Just don't FOOL YOURSELF into believing that your agenda has ANYTHING to do with ORGANIC BLACK DEVELOPMENT.

It is ONLY a "Leftist Movement" with Black coal soot sprinkled upon it with ANGER to call it a "Angry Black POWER" movement.

The point is that you can move to the middle of the Arizona desert and construct the most massive solar array to collect enough energy to have a 100% green energy house.

Without CONNECTIVITY to the grid:

* The Internet grid
* The Telephone grid
* etc

the AMOUNT of energy that you use is not the relevant point!!!

You where you live as compared to the person who lives in the mountains of Uruguay have the OPTION to consume a little or a lot. A person in a disconnected state can TRY AS HARD AS HE WANTS TO - if there is no INFRASTRUCTURE - funded by evil capitalism - that connect her to the grid - these THEORIES of amount of consumption per the stewardship of the Earth go out of the window.

mellaneous said...

What up brother Field! Glad you posted that Roots link and the NYTimes story. I am working on that very thing for a new website, I'll tell more about it as it progresses, or at least I hope it will progress.

The Niger Delta is a mess these people which used to provide much of the food for the interior and just about all the fish now have to import frozen fish.

The spills are usually the result of the malfunction of equipment and the pork guy is right there has been sabotage but the vast majority of leakage is due to faulty equipment especially pipelines.

CF is actually part right about the role of the corrupt Nigerian government which pulls in get this a little more than $60 billion a year from the oil industry,but of course as per usual he somehow seems to think well this is just the cost of doing business.

The corruption runs deep even in the locales where the money is distributed corruption and greed keeps the money from getting to the little people.

Nigeria which had a flourishing export industry in many food staples now imports most of its food primarily because of the large amount of eco damage. The Niger Delta is one of the 10 most fertile regions in the entire world.

Nigeria - well at least its people -is incredibly one of the poorer countries in Africa as a result of the corruption.

There has been some organized opposition to the oil companies by many locals especially in the Niger Delta region because they feel that and in fact have been left out of the benefits that spring from the black gold that comes from its region.

Many of the young people have taken an approach that says if we can't benefit from the oil then noone will. Many have begun kidnapping oil company employees and trying to destroy entire drilling stations.

Field its worse than we can imagine. The women in the areas are selling themselves to make money and of course their primary clients are the foreign oil workers.

Here we have the perfect greed inspired capitalist storm. Greedy industrialists don't consider the consequences of their drilling do little to make sure that the very people who they are taking mineral wealth from benefit while they get to blame the government who they know are not going to do the right thing with the money.

The development of this inferior person's station is life has more to do with YOU fighting against his ENEMY rather than building up COMPETENCY in this person and others in his community so that together they can generate ORGANIC production that emanates from within the zone that they control and is transacted with others who VALUE their wares.

Here is how the "conflict" between you and I goes.

YOU make some sort of ad hominem against some entity that you have issues with:

* Corporations
* Capitalism
* etc

Even though its not targeted at ME - it rubs me the wrong way. I then post something that shows the "big picture" (ie: YOU have likely used the oil that flowed through the corroded pipelines in Nigeria) as I attempt to show the connectedness of commerce in this world and YOU take it as some sort of personal attack against YOU.

As I have said before I do not know your personal situation. Unlike KID I couldn't venture to state that YOU therefore killed the Nigerian people who drilled a hole through an active gasoline pipeline to siphon some gasoline off, only to see several hundred people die in the explosion. You may be an ultimate consumer of this commodity that gets laundered as it passes through the supply chain but I would never make it all about YOU. I am as complicit of a consumer as you.

My ONLY agenda is to get people to stop standing on moral high grounds; stop waiting until the government FORCES US to do something in unison; before any of us chooses to live the "Green Life" based upon their own compass reading.

(I did not indicate that you have not already Gone Green this).

I have no personal beef with you Hathor. At the end of it all we need workable solutions that rely on practicality and pragmatism. Various "burn them at the stake" schemes so often have unintended consequences.

This happened in Trumbull County,Youngstown near the Pennsylvania border, no where near Cuyahoga County. He sent "challengrs" to imtimidate little ole black ladies from Birminham like my mother you sorry mother fucker.

Why didn''t blackwell go to jail? He wrote a law that said he couldn't get sued. Jennifer Brunner try but couldn't.

And are we feeling sorry for what these poor black women have to do, or are we condemning what they desperately must to do to put food on their tables.

Ya know Mell, most of those Nigerian officials and law makers are black Nigerian/African men who have been making these same resource and land raping contracts with those "foreigners" for generations. And they do it literally through sexing, bedding and marrying the foreign man's sisters, daughters and cousins.

Take a look at all those MANY prosperous "me firsters" anti-black female Nigerian male officials and dignitaries who so happen to be married to the same "foreign man's" white woman. Have you ever noticed that? It's staggering. These greedy African men help "foreigners" suck and mass rape Africa. These same African men sold out their own black people, they sold out, pimped and oppressed black women and black children for generations and decades out of greed along with the "foreign man". I Just thought I'd remind you.

TOLD BY WHOM??????????

This is a creation of your mind.

Any black man who isn't a celebrity and has dated a white woman knows the venom and grief you'll get from black women.

"I always welcome the refreshing sight of seeing a black woman in an IR with a non-black man. There is A LOT of catching up to do for black women in IRs."

Well what's stopping you?

I'll tell you what's stopping you but you'll never admit it.

Non-black men don't ask black women out often for whatever reasons one cares to postulate.

Shell should have to renegotiate the drilling contract so it benefits the residents and not just the politicians and Shell. Shell should be fined and they should train and hire locals to rebuild the lines. That was part of the problem the whole time. Performing field work on the pipes was and is dangerous because they're hated.

"you have MADE countless anti-bf comments herien and you KNOW SO!!!"

PRODUCE ONE!!!!!!

"your most vile remarks are reserved for single black professional het females"

More bullshit.

I've said several time that I know single sisters who have a trail of men running after them.

I worked with a beautiful young sister who has been proposed to no less than 3 times in the last two years.

My problem, which I've clearly stated, is with the females who claim they can't find anyone "on their level" or "good enough" for them when in reality they should be damn happy if Junebug the garbageman shows them some attention.

As far as my quote that you produced, where is the black women animus???

You may not like what I said but there was nothing anti-female about it.

uptownsteve said...

"Does Mrs. Uptown ever read this blog??"

On occassion.

And to quote her, ya'll have the "lackanookie blues."

RottnKid:

I am a "corporate Negro" so I think in terms of frameworks.

YES my "thoughts have changed".

I see that now, MORE THAN EVER, there is a need to have everyone drawn into a model by which:

1) Their claims can be VALIDATED as true (See Kid)

2) They are made clear about the the OBJECTIVES that they are working toward.

3) They are made to see that METHODOLOGY used to "obtain these objectives" are NOT the same as "getting there". (ie: your preferred ideology is a methodology)

4) That just because you can show how POPULAR your methodology is DOES NOT MEAN that it is EFFECTIVE

5) That the main people who are resistant to TRANSPARENT SCRUTINY of their POPULAR THOUGHTS are "inside traders" - just as the banking industry is.

They prefer their POWER to their PERMANENT INTERESTS.

This is what I have learned RottnKid - in addition to mastering my debate techniques against some people. (Steve - I can see his tactics from 2 miles away)

Again - please detail MECHANICALLY how "Ward Connerly THREW OUT Black kids?"

It sounds like you don't care about the HOOK UP that got the kids into school in the first place. You are pissed that it was taken away.

WHAT IS LOST in your argument if the SCHOOLS from which the "wide middle" of Black people come from which should be REFOCUSED into raising every Black student's capabilities 2 standard deviations HIGHER. This would INCREASE the number of Black candidates in the pool and drastically improve the admissions count.

Wow. You mean to tell me if some economist was to document the FORCE that destroyed the GDP of Cleveland MY FACE would be shown?

I just learned how to spell the name of the Cuyahoga.

My barber is from Cleveland. He told me how he moved after seeing so many of his lifelong friends destroy their lives or be killed. I didn't realize that I KILLED THEM.

I should be ashamed of myself.
Maybe I should turn myself in and become a star after writing "Dispatches From Death Row; The Black Conservative Edition"?

If shit like this keeps up , the only way to save America is to turn to Marxist or REAL Socialism.

In YOUR VIEW - if things DO CHANGE you STILL are going to want SOCIALISM. Who are you fooling, fool?


Have you read the news on yahoo today the rich just got richer.


The REAL question you should ask yourself is WHAT ADDITIONAL VALUE HAVE YOU CREATED IN YOUR SKILLS that would have a person who was foolish enough to hire you to PAY you more money.

I WOULDN'T HIRE YOU based on what I know about you. You'd likely GO ON STRIKE and stay within my office as you take YOURSELF hostage and demand that I feed you.


It looks like if the President isn't allowed to fix America ,the place is going to look like the French Revolution.There's a lot of whites in Cleveland out of work and the know the President didn't do it.

Notice the SWITCH FOLKS.
Bush would have CAUSED the increased INCOME GAP.
With Kid OBAMA'S GONNA FIX IT.

Again WHAT COMPETENCIES WILL BE DEVELOPED among those with a HIGHER WAGE in your world?

Hey LA Audio you made a good point about the choices of the Nigerian bureaucrats and administrators. It makes sense because they are clearly haters of themselves and everything thats black.

It affects them all I read in some African journal that many of the Nigerian sisters were trying to hustle the foreigns mainly European oil men because they got to charge them more and they gladly paid.

I guess the European men in Europe aren't as undercover but those pigs have been fathering children with women over their and leaving them too.

Quick question, conservative troll.

Why is it that every time minorities are happy, republicans, and angry white men (like yourself) are angry and sad?

"You want to paint anybody who doesn't share your intense anti-black male animus as "not caring about black women" and it's nonsense.

You black proto-femmes are as bad as white racists.

You don't want to say or hear anything about white men who attack or disrespect black women.

All you want to talk about is how us terrible black men treat our women."


I'm not concerned about women who fit the above description. As far as I'm concerned, that's their problem to sort out and work through. But I am concerned about them unleashing their neurosis on young black boys. Imagine seeing your son read WAOD and Sojourner's Passport. Now try to keep him from internalizing that by explaining to him that those screeds are just that. In a worst case scenario, he comes away with the conclusion that black women simply aren't worth the time or effort, since he'll more than likely be demonized no matter how "right" or "wrong" he does by them.

The white establishment isn't too worried about their men marrying black women. As long as the white women remain unsullied by black geneology, it's a win-win. The black gene pool gets "beiged-out", the menfolk continue to get killed off thanks to continued tomfoolery, plus they lose what was once a reliable means of support and unity and well....the "black problem" eventually solves itself.

What? You didn't think that our people were an endangered species? Well, we are. Under constant threat from both internal and external forces. Whites don't have to deal with such a problem.

Mack Lyons said...

"I cannot believe that mere ideology would motivate a black man to so fiercely defend white racists and reactionaries at every turn while savagely slandering and attacking his own people."

An extreme case of self-hatred can do that. The whole "Uncle Ruckus" thing seems funny because people just can't get around how a man can have that much of a hate jones over his ethnic makeup. Since he can't change who he was born without possibly killing himself, he proceeds to sabotage his fellow blacks -- kinda like a crab in a bucket.

Crabs eventually get cooked and eaten. Too bad crabs can't think that far -- or even believe such a thing could happen to them.

Damn - Low and Country - you put a Geechie hex on my computer.

I typed up an excellent reframing of your "Happy Black people" statement and then my Google Chrome browser froze up when I hit the button.

In short I said that it is PERVERTED to look for HAPPY BLACK PEOPLE. Racist WHITE FOLKS noted in the past that regardless of how much they dogged out Black folks during the work week they were the most happy lot of people on the weekend as they got to dancing, singing in church and boozing at the Hooch joint.

I then posted a video of "Chicago Lady 216".
http://withintheblackcommunity.blogspot.com/2010/05/transcript-of-chicago-lady-216s.html

This is show "CNN: The Deadly Streets Of Chicago". Everyone on the show is a parent who has suffered from a "Street Pirate Lynching" on streets of the most Democratic eco-system in America.

Chicago Lady 216 had thought that the Earth's axis had titled on Nov 4, 2008 and that all of the Earth would enjoy tropical sun year round.

Then a STREET PIRATE took the life of her child and caused her "Obama Commemorative Plate" to shatter to the ground. Despite her attempts to glue it all back together her world was never the same.

I get the feeling that SHE would say "President Obama MAKE ME FEEL THE WAY YOU MADE ME FEEL in 2008 once again!!! I will do ANYTHING for you to make me feel that way again".

I then stated that HAPPINESS must be inspected by the UNDERPINNINGS.

You can get happy off of WEED.
You can get happy when a no good slixter brings you roses on a 11pm booty call while his wife is sleeping.

Do you see that HAPPINESS in and of itself IS NOT an indicator of you having achieve your PERMANENT INTERESTS?

I was hoping for a more insightful, informative, discussion about Black folks' relationship w/ the environment and our contributions (both good and bad) to what will sooner rather than later be an energy crisis. Although I do appreciate the 1st-hand accounts of what's going on in Nigeria.

Nigeria is a macro-view of what MOST inner-city, predominantly Black or Latino neighborhoods look like. While yes, there are no major oil leaks, there are PLENTY examples of ground-water, public schools, abandoned manufacturing buildings, or massive levels of toxicity in the air or in the ground in many of these neighborhoods. They talk about the Spill in the Gulf but little has been dedicated to areas in the state capitol of Baton Rouge "affectionately" named 'Cancer Alley' due to the high levels of toxicity from the refineries lining the Mississippi. The neighborhood one of my grandmother lives in has cancer rates nearing record levels. But all over this country we have public schools who are predominantly black or latino have record levels of lead poisoning or Superfund sites serve as the back-drop to some of these same neighborhoods.

Yet, our level of consciousness about the environment or use of energy (which is DEFINITELY more than a Black or Latino issue) is a case of wanting or "cake and eat it" kind of syndrome.
We want to be able to drive whatever kind of cars, regardless of the emissions, we want to be able to drill anywhere we want in order to keep our gas prices low, we're not willing to commit tax-payer money to explore innovate ways to develop, safer, cleaner, green industry---which could also help the badly-needed dwindling manufacturing sector.

So until we start having a community and national awakening around people of color's relationship w/ the environment & our use of energy, we'll keep seeing disasters like Nigeria, the Gulf, or the many neighborhoods all over the U.S.

I am going to leave one of my rare comments here. I don't think people get it. What's left of the U.S. economy is hanging by a thread. If they can't cap that runaway blowout with relief wells, all hell's going to break loose right here at home.

The situation in Nigeria absolutely sucks. I don't mean to minimize it for a minute. But honest, folks, we are hanging by a thread, for real.

Anonymous said...

Grinder, I live close to the Gulf and have always fished there. That's done now. I read read 'The Old Man and the Sea' when it started and just got sad all over again. It just sucks. River repair quickly but the gulf won't.

Grinder, it's nice to hear from you again. I've always enjoyed your comments, they have always been informative and helpful.

I agree that if the relief well doesn't work, America will be in very big trouble. I am fearful that the relief well may turn out to be a failure. If that happens, I shudder to think what will happen to our nation.

I am praying that it will work, for the sake of our country and everyone.

I hope you will comment more in the future.

Black Girl #1:

Would YOU support the Federal Government providing:
* Respirators
* Hazmat Suits
* Removal Tools
* Secure Dumpsters
* Trucks to haul the materials away

TO these "Black and Hispanic" communities and ask that the local people coalesce to organize a group of concerned citizens to CLEAN UP THEIR OWN COMMUNITY, being employed by LOCAL FUNDING and/or VOLUNTEERING? The thought being that since this is an INVESTMENT IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES, which have been long over looked in the way of resources that they would be have a vested interest in removing these brownfields?

I get the feeling that you will see my proposal which asks the community to clean up their own communities as PUNISHMENT rather than a rational way forward. Can you imagine if we were alive 200 years ago and the newly stolen land needed to be prepared for human habitation absent a central government to hand out paychecks?

““Risk”remains a key issue for every business, but at BP it is fundamental to what we do. We operate at the frontiers of the energy industry, in an environment where attitude to risk is key … We continue to show our ability to take on and manage risk, doing the difficult things that others either can’t do or choose not to do.”

Given that there is the MWWS designation, I think it only fair that there also be a designation of "Hollering, "Nigga!" - That propensity of white women for making accusations against a phantom black man to cover their own misdeeds. HN! once resulting in lynchings, hangings, and sometimes entire towns being burned to the ground (see Rosewood.) In the late 20th century it was often met with scepticism when the accusation did not match known behavior patterns of black men. (see Susan Smith, and "The runaway bride.") It should also be noted that HN! is also done by white men, usually after the fatal shooting of a spouse, during which said white male sustains a much less letal wound after which the phantom black male runs into the night.

grinder said...

At the moment, anyway, I am finding myself relatively uninterested in BP's malfeasance, or even in what's happening in Nigeria. Note the word, "relatively." Yeah, BP should be held to account, and Nigeria is a disaster. But right now, I am very closely focused on the Gulf relief well operation.

I honestly believe that the Obama administration is fully aware of the high stakes involved. I further strongly suspect that they are downplaying those stakes, because if they came out and told us that the American future is hanging on this, everyone would freeze and the economy would go into a tailspin.

But make no mistake, folks, this is as big as it gets.

I was looking on the web site and saw that you haven't covered the BP disaster recently. I saw this article on how it affects black culture and black life and what not.
