Field got mail!


Let me start this post by saying congrats to the people of Egypt. You deserve your freedom. You took to the streets and sacrificed your time, blood, sweat, and tears for it. I guess a revolution can be televised after all.

Now to the mailbag:

I never usually post the e-mails that I get from readers. Primarily because most of them are just the usual hate filled rants about N*&&%r this and N*&^$r that; with a few choice curse words sprinkled in between.

But every now and then I get one without the usual cursing that I can actually publish. I will publish this one and attempt to answer some of the writer's questions.

"Hello,

Somehow I stumbled upon your blog "Field Negro". I must say that although you state that you are a lawyer you are very good at playing the black victim status/role and pandering to others who want to keep this fraudulent stereotype alive.. Go ahead and refer to yourself as a so called field Negro (as if you really know what it is like to work in the fields) play victim to the mean WHITE society that's keeping you down. Sir this argument is growing older than dirt and you know it. A Merry Ca as you refer to it is the place where people from all over the world come to seek a better life. I consider myself lucky to have been born here. Some people (like yourself) just don't appreciate the freedoms and the sacrifices made by Americans of all colors so that you could be free to write the drivel that you do.

By now I'm sure you've heard this all before and I'm quite certain that you have a steady and consistent argument in place in response to folks like myself. You mentioned in your profile that you were born in Jamaica. I just don't understand people like yourself who come here from other parts of the world only to spit on America and the privileges that are offered to all who really want to invest themselves. Invest not in harmful racist banter but with positive contributions to a country that right now needs less hate and more people to stand up and do what's right.

What is it that makes you hate America and white people so much? Do you realize that other's who come here, Chinese, Latinos Indian. etc etc are passing the black race by? Your failure to move forward is what is making this happen,sir. Your belief that slavery and victim status is the way to go is only holding the black people back. I don't see many Chinese complaining and bad mouthing America after arriving here from communist China.

Let's face it, America is not perfect. There will always be hate and racism and injustices done to some people of all races but why fuel the fires of hate and pain? Why not put that time and energy into helping others who need a hand pulling themselves up to possibly become an attorney like yourself or whatever dream they may have other than drugs and guns and a certain death on our streets?

In America today we are all free to come and free to go. No one is cracking a whip at our feet in the cotton fields. America needs your help,sir. You can either dive in and help out or you can keep spilling your negative hateful America bashing day in and day out. Just remember that you are free to make that choice. You are also free to go back to your country of origin if you really find it so bad here in A Merry Ca.

Sincerely,

Ralph Jones "

Well Ralph, first, let me say thanks for writing. I appreciate that fact that you tried to keep your tone somewhat civil. That must have been hard for you.

Anyway Ralph, let me start with your somewhat xenophobic premise that somehow you are entitled to claim A-merry-ca and I am not. Sir, unless you happen to be a Native American, you can make no such claim. I came to this country legally, and my status here affords me all the rights of citizenship. You happened to have been born here. Great. But remember, we have an equal claim to this country. You sir, by virtue of your birth, have no more rights and privileges than I do. (Unless, of course, we both decide to run for president)

You also fall into the trap of believing that everyone who comes to this country was living a miserable Third World existence. Nothing could be further from the truth. I can assure you, sir, that I did not come to this country needing a hand out. I know that throws off your narrative, but sometimes you just have to think outside of that xenophobic box. Also, I did not come here to spit on this country,--- my very A-merry-can wife would not allow it.

Ralph , you can't run away from your history, and the conditions that your history has created for generations of people (black and white) in A-merry-ca. There might be a day in A-merry-ca when uppity Negroes like myself wont post "drivel" on the Internet on a daily basis, but sorry, we are not there yet. There are still too many folks like you who are in denial.

I have contributed in many positive ways to this country, and, in spite of your red white and blue blinders, I am not so sure that you can say the same. I have also "moved forward" in my personal life. The difference between the two of us is is that I want others to move forward with me. You have deluded yourself under a cloud of white (or house) privilege, so you do not. I care about people not A-merry-can people. Just people. That might not be the A-merry-can way, but I am a human being first, not an A-merry-can.

So sorry Ralph, I will keep "bashing." Because no one (as you so conveniently reminded me) is "cracking a whip" at my feet. My job is to constantly remind people like you what A-merry-ca is capable of ,and if folks like me aren't always vigilant, she just might resort to her old ways.

Still Ralph, you are right about one thing; A-merry-ca does need help. But folks who are in denial like yourself won't be able to do much. In order to help A-merry-ca you have to first help yourself. The only way you can do that is by crawling from under that flag you conveniently use to shield yourself from the problems in this country. Problems, I might add, that were created over time by folks just like you.

A disappointing response from a disappointing letter.

PilotX said...

It is funny to me that people like Ralph don't see that their reality isn't the only one. They just seem to gloss over the fact that people like yourself, Leonard Pitts and Cynthia Tucker get all kinds of racist hate mail and sometimes death threats but they highlight the fact that you are the one being racist or are the problem. This conservative myopia is astonishing. Well, I for one am glad that at least they are recognizing racism exists in 2011, too bad the only racism they see is Black on white racism but it is progress. Funny thing on your blog was Rev Right admitting he dodn't know there was a Black national anthem, makes one wonder two things; 1. what else don't these guys know about Black culture and 2. given their lack of knowledge of Black culture what makes them think they have any business telling us what we should do and what we should feel? I don't go on stormfront telling racist whites what to think but then again maybe I should.

Field,

Great post. Too bad you have to go through so much crap when you have a site that allows opposing views no matter how wacky they are.

Field, this is well stated and heart felt by many of us who appreciate your blog and opinions. We may not always agree, yet, we have a forum to do so.

Langston Hughes, one of my favorite poets lamented:

"I swear to the Lord
I still can't see
Why Democracy means
Everybody but me"

Dear Field,
I, for one, appreciate your vision, thoughts, and sense of humor. Keep blogging, the way you want to blog. There's plenty of internet out there for those who don't want to read what you have to say.

You have got to be kidding. Field attacks the right wing daily and you can't see why Field get hate mail? If not, then you, sir are quite stupid.

Field needs to learn how to make better responses than the complaining email he receives. Of course, you, mr PilotX thinks Field walks on water, like most of the bm on this blog. As often mentioned, you bm need to check yourselves and become more responsible in what you do, say and behave. If you did that, you wouldn't receive such email.

Love how one claiming to be AfAm calls Obama a mongrel. -Snicker- Onliest ones who do that is wites. If wite needs to ask...hit up dem Africans...they will laugh at your infinite ignorance and then 'splain it to you.

Ralph just can't understand why after 300+ years of waiting patiently, folks just don't want to wait. Or be told anything by ill-educated louts whose main income-producing asset is wite skin.

Ralph also isn't privy to any Chinese. They do complain and 'bad mouth' the US. But, then...that takes them trusting you.

Field, I appreciate FN blog. It is a lot of fun, entertainment and true gossip in the A-merry-ca way. It has been a blast talking to folks from the hood like mell, uts, mack and pilotX. This internet communication has helped me understand how bm think and why they disrespect bw. It's very sad and I don't blame bw for turning away from them.

As the good Rev Manning would say, "They are a sorry shameless excuse for a bm."

Field, "I swear Anon.@ 8:50 PM is an old white man from Arkansas.He never fails. :)"

Now see, there you go slamming me again. Nevertheless, I really love FN blog, it hurts to be called out on here by some of you progressive naive mean-spirited black dems, but I don't know what I would do if FN didn't exist. There would be nothing else to do but drink moonshine and say the N-word as fast as I can and as many times I could in an hour. But since I've been on FN, I have not had the desire to say the N-word at all.

Field, your blog has had a calming effect on me in my old age. I can even sleep through the night without thinking of Negroes my ancestors used to own. I want you to know how much I appreciate what you have done for me. I love Negroes in a way I have never loved anyone before...

Oh anon, I know why Field and other Black bloggers get hate mail, never said I didn't. The part that astonishes me is that he gets attacked for doing something butthose that attack him completely ignore those attacking him. If I get 100 e-mail a day from white people calling me the n-word and using other racist language don't tell me that the only racism out there is from me. This is the old trick from the 60's. We don't need no help with our nigras, they was quite happy til ya'll agitators came here and stirred em up. Of course us lynching em, burning crosses in their lawns and keeping em from voting ain't got nothing to do with it. I swear the more things change..........

Pretty good commentary Field! Way to stand up for yourself.

I have to admit that the anons who fail to present an argument but take anonymous pot shots are getting old and making it harder to have real discussion and debate.

I mean if you hate everybody and everything how many ways can you say it. And then whats the point everybody gets it.

Dear Ralph,
I am possibly one of the whitest people alive. I quite enjoyed the time I spent with Mr. Field and am questioning your accusation that he hates white people. If this is what you get by readign his site, you are hypersensitive and in general denial of the reality around you.

I would only add the following to what you said, Field. That bit about how when asked what is next, at the end of the US Civil War, Fredrick Douglass answered,"Agitate agitate!"

Loved the mention of "uppity Negroes."

Beyond that, I am sure you have done your bit for community if not country. I did three years court appointed cases at 1801 Vine, if you know what I mean.

Rev Manning would disagree. Agitating the white man is a terrible thing to do as any self-respecting Negro will tell you. Negroes need to agitate themselves enough to straighten up and fly right.

With bm like Mellaneous, Mack Lyons and uts our black community is lacking discipline and creative ideas. We are stuck because of folks like them.

What ever happened to Jody? RT? Kathy? Christopher? Damn, a lot of white folks are missing. Field you should have an EEOC policy posted in your sidebar.

As a matter of fact, the 'fact' that you don't have such an EEOC statement in 2011 proves that you are a racist. Ralph had you pegged right, and as a bm I am standing with brother Ralph because there is NO EXCUSE not to have an EEOC policy posted.

Field, you should be ashamed of yourself. You owe Ralph and other patriotic Conservatives an apology.

Now exactly what is it about us that's bugging you, aside from what FP and LAA tell you? You really need to stop running up behind those women. They're not gonna give you any and I wouldn't blame them.

You remind me of the "friend" who keeps hanging around a woman, being her listening post, "yes" man and amen corner just so he can slide up in that. It never works. You should...I dunno....resign yourself to finding the ugliest white girl you find and be happy with that*, lol^.

Besides, I thought they grew tired of various anons acting like fools most of the time (not saying that all anons act that way, but most of you are fucking things up for your fellow anons*). I'm sure they'll come back and provide us with unique insight from time to time.

****

And some people dare question my contempt for the intellectual capability of right wingers (broadly.)

1801 Vine is the main Family Law Court in Philly. Doing 'Court appointed cases,' is the way lawyers say they are getting cases from either the judges of the courtl or the clerk of the court. I got more cases from the clerk, back in the day when I did that.

But you do (sir or madam) prove what I say about the right wing.

Fundamentally evil in thought and deed. I want to say you should be ashamed of yourself, but I know that would yield no satisfactorly reply.

There is no good thing to say about some troll who picks a fight through insults and viciousness. So I really ought to just leave it at that.

You should not take yourself so seriously. It is not good for the heart and soul. None of us is going to get out of this life alive anyway, so lighten up...get out of that self-pitying mode that you leftists charish so much.lol

Btw having contempt for right wingers or ANYBODY does not hurt them, but it does a lot of damage to you. I hate to see a perfectly good leftist piss away his life on resentments where evil certainly arises.:)

Go to church and confess your sins, and you will feel better about yourself.:)

"I don't see many Chinese complaining and bad mouthing America after arriving here from communist China."

Why don't you ask Leeland Yee the State Senator from California that Rush Limbaugh's fans send death threats to?

About 100 years ago the Chinese started the Boxer Rebellion to clean their country of foreign influence. The phrase that was common then was "sick man of Asia". So they got rid of the colonialist and got rid of the opium.

Now Africa and the Mideast is still trying to shake the shackles of Colonialism. We also have that same problem in America.

The main problem with most of the world is "corrupt" Capitalism.Eliminate most of the "corrupt" Capitalism and most of the worlds problems will be solved.

I am willing to take you at your word for the just kidding thing. But please take the follwoing seriously (even if you reject it.) Before going to law school I earned a BA in Theatre, and studied English, and Mass Comm and related technical subjects.

And based on that I swear with the certainly of someone who has worked in communication, show biz, that joking in "text" is a way harder trick to pull off then telling a joke to your buddies at work or where ever you hang.

Text really sucks for communication, save for the sophisticated writer, dealing with as sophisticated an audience. Nuance is usually lost and literal meaning comes across way the fug stronger than figurative. That's the rule.

Assume attempts at humor are doomed to failure, until people pay you to repeat the feat. And I mean people other than those douchebags at FNCs Redeye.

I am tired of you FN folks picking on poor Ralph for exercising his first amendment rights. He was merely concerned about Field and the direction FN seemed to be going. Which is toward an all Black blog. He was only trying to protect Field from going to jail.

We live in post-racial A-Merry-ca and we are a diversified color-blind nation. Kid, I know this sounds foreign to you but that's because you live in Cleveland. In Cleveland NOTHING is right for the Whites or Blacks. Hell, even LeBron couldn't stand it there and they were paying him millions to stay.

mellaneous said...

Kid you got part of the analysis right. Most Americans don't know that China is a capitalist country and adheres to the free market, because they listen to the Big Business press which sometimes slips and still refers to China as communist, but its not.

And Africa is still struggling with the vestiges of colonialism called neo-colonialism in which the corrupt leaders of many African states do the bidding of Western Imperialism while lining their own pockets.

The North Africans and the Arab world are struggling against captalism. Capitalism which has its basis in the profit motive and individuals owning the means of production, or to put another way the means for the average person to eat, is inherently corrupt.

All one has to do is look at the glaring inequities in our society today and see that something is wrong with this system.

(Personally I go through the bother of re writing "text" jokes that have not been properly rendered for mere text, before I forward them. I mean, I do have standards to keep up! The mere transcript of a spoken joke is not guaranteed to flow properly in text. It's a different medium. Anyone with a rudimentary education should see that.)

Question is can anyone anchored in the quagmire that is rational thought get yours.

I am not meaning to be insulting, but declarative.

What the hell do you mean by that, in other words?

Are you Ann Althouse in disguise or something weird like that?

Last remark. All else you need to know about me is that for the 20 or so years of my legal career, I have often repeated the same old joke:

"I gave up my career in show biz for this shit?"


Point is. Get some show biz credits. Till then? Bla bla yadda yadda to you, bub.

I compared your reliability to a Swiss watch. Your character, on the other hand, comes nowhere close. The above posted is proof of both.

"....a sorry representation of your race". By the way that's worded, I thought you were one of those condesending Whites who attempt to browbeat "reverse racists" by tut-tutting them in a disapproving manner. Or a so-called "conservative Black" who has to jig and jive all day just to get his white conservative counterparts to even remember he exists. They've been telling you the country club's been "full" for the past few years, haven't they?

Before The Mayflower said...

When I encounter statements like this one from Ralph Jones, I try to divine why someone would take the time to criticize both the purpose and the methods of someone with whom they say they disagree.

Ralph Jones, it seems, have bought the concept of American exceptionalism, and don't mind handing it out gratis to all he perceives are claiming a state of penury.

Some socialism (spreading the wealth), it seems, is a good thing.

Because you're successful in your profession, this in itself should preclude the possibility of you crying foul, and cloaking yourself in victimhood, presumably in response to the ravages of racism.

Jones feels that your personal station in life should be proof enough that American exceptionalism is a wealth that all can have simply for the asking.

Further, Jones believes that WHITE society is not guilty for any perceived plaint blacks may have and that we should stop holding them responsible. We're embracing an outdated view of white Americans.

And to accentuate his point, that American exceptionalism may be found around every corner, Jones details some of the benefits you're receiving, and concludes that you're unappreciative because you're critical of the country that God has shed his grace upon.

You, and other blacks like you, are the problem. You're the "racist." You're the ones filled with "hate." You're the ones who refuse to acknowledge American exceptionalism, this shining light upon a majestic hill.

The most amazing part of his diatribe is his willingness to admit America's shortcomings. "Let's face it, America is not perfect. There will always be hate and racism and injustices done to some people of all races but why fuel the fires of hate and pain?"

Yet, he wishes you and other blacks to exercise restraint. He wishes you and other blacks, in the name of American exceptionalism, to be silent in the face of racist atrocities, all so that he can have the America of his dreams, and of his imagining.

And Ralph Jones sums it all up in the eternal words of all those who believe that American exceptionalism should never be tarnished, should never be spoken of in less than glowing terms, and prayerful reverence, that we should either "love America or leave it."

Ralph Jones believes in American exceptionalism. What he doesn't realizes, or refuses to admit, is that many Americans are left out, excepted, from the American exceptionalism he's so proud to embrace, defend, and praise for its supposed rarity in our world.

@anon, re-read the post slower it may help your understanding.
@SPC, are you REALLY stuck on the whole Democrats used to be the party of racism stuff? Enslavement is what you got from that? Wow, I know it's meant to be hyperbolic but the point you missed isn't whether or not the type of people that send racist e-mail and such are holding anyone back but that they exist at all. I and most everyone on this blog are successful and live a pretty good life but there is still racism out there and needs to be addressed. Do I spend all day or even a small part of my day worrying or thinking about it? Not really but when folks start going on about the only racism is Black on white racism I do feel the need to share a bit of reality is all. Anything else sir or ma'am?

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Well...all I can say to you Ralph is that you shouldn't judge a book by the cover, sometimes it takes a few pages, and then again sometimes it takes the end.

Nevertheless, you've judged Field wrong. I discerned his heart a long time ago, and he has a good heart. He is a sincere, honorable, and decent man with moral principles. His parents instilled those qualities in him.

In spite of what you think, the other posters on here are not bad people and neither are they misguided, blind, or lacking in intelligence. There are some highly intelligent posters on here.

Most of the posters are passionate in their beliefs. Yes, the convo on here gets heated at times, but don't let that fool you, because it's more like family members venting their grievances.

Your existence lies in politics, which proves Amerikkkans capitalist mindset continues to churn more political rhetoric in order to create wealth for yourself while denying other human beings the benefit of wealth by exclusion and bigotry.

I'm a white person who come to your blog daily because I will find it interesting, amusing or informative. I think it's healthy to know how people feel outside of the little world we all make for ourselves.

You have the right to write whatever you want. And if you want to chase racism, go right ahead. That seems to be a chief complaint here.

If Ralph has a problem with you being an attorney, he has the option of going to law school and doing the same.

The point I really want to make though is for every Ralph out there, there are many more unlike him. We don't have the anger or the hatred to compel writing such emails. You get so much hate mail I think it would distort your perception.

I liked your line about hiding under the flag. I'm going to use it.

I read the letter you posted carefully. There were some comments made by the author I found as status quo isms of racism, including all races. I also felt the writer was authentically attempting a dialogue with you, with his own purpose of understanding what your mission here is. After I read your response, I just felt disappointed that his effort, however you may frame it, was sadly shot down without true understanding of the small steps people sometimes must take to move forward. In your response to the writer, the sarcasm, blaming posture, the degrading comments you made, were not congruent to this man's honest attempt to express his frustration though willingness to add something positive to his perspective. I don't believe this writer will make much of an attempt again. He made himself vulnerable to you because he apparently believed you were the real thing, a true seeker of peace. You let him, and those of us who do seek understanding and movement to higher ground, down. You are a race baiter. What you did was to attack an honest effort, with relish, not to proove you are equal. But to make a clear statement as to your superiority. This is the very nature at the heart of racism. You acted out the basis of being racist, with a sort of malicious glee. What you have written here, what you do here, will not enlighten, inform, hold accountable or result in anything constructive or healing where racism is concerned. You don't print the obvious haters comments; you did print this man's struggle to understand, though you seemed to take pride in shaming him for his attempt. Shame on you, for your prejudice disguised as activism. Shame on you for posing as someone who cares about racism when what you are really wanting is a forum to project your flagging self-esteem onto others and then beat them up for participating. Yours is a narcissistic endeavor, carefully constructed based on your beliefs and having the ability to manipulate what people say as proof that you are right. You aren't. You hurt people just as all racists hurt people. You are a perpetrator of racism and it's continued scarring of the face of our entire world. You will fend off these comments quite succesfully, because this is what you do to hide behind your own sinister motives, to make it the issue of other people, split off your own terrible racism, refusing to allow your owning your own racial anger. I'm sorry you hate yourself, and punish others for the misery you inflict upon yourself. I'm sorry you will not print this, because it does expose you. And I don't believe you will risk that.

field, only you and your devoted followers see the military coup in Egypt as an outright victory.

At this point, there is NO reason to cheer. In the history of Islam there is only one Islamic nation that became a "democracy" following a takeover of the country by its military.

Will Egypt become the second Islamic nation to transition from a military dictatorship to a democracy? Nobody knows.

However, Obama's wimpiness is one factor that says the generals will decide they like running Egypt and they will continue to run it for as long as they can.

After all, they are Islamic, and Islam is a religion/political doctrine and military. Hence, it is within their belief system for the Islamic generals to hold the power in their Islamic republic.

The Egyptain military has reasonably good ties to the US military. Therefore, Obama will not object when the Egyptian generals make no moves to hand over power.

The generals will say "It's too soon. The people are not ready."

Before the Mayflower I think what you said really nails Ralph Jones and describes acurately articulates his real problem with Field's commentary.

Ultimately he wants Field to SHUT UP! Talk of the truth the racism, the poverty, inequality and inequities suffered by many Americans should be swept under the rug and ignored because it sullies the ideal. And besides, its not affecting him and he is saying he really doesn't care so why don't folks like Field just go away.

Before the Mayflower said:

"Yet, he wishes you and other blacks to exercise restraint. He wishes you and other blacks, in the name of American exceptionalism, to be silent in the face of racist atrocities, all so that he can have the America of his dreams, and of his imagining.

And Ralph Jones sums it all up in the eternal words of all those who believe that American exceptionalism should never be tarnished, should never be spoken of in less than glowing terms, and prayerful reverence, that we should either "love America or leave it."

Ralph Jones believes in American exceptionalism. What he doesn't realizes, or refuses to admit, is that many Americans are left out, excepted, from the American exceptionalism he's so proud to embrace, defend, and praise for its supposed rarity in our world."

Rev. Right said...

I thought Ralph made some valid points, primary among them that you are very good at ignoring all the obvious positive features of America and display a somewhat perplexing need to wear your hatred on your sleeve, even when that sleeve is part of a thousand dollar suit.

I’ll give you this: Blacks have a history here that is not shared by immigrants from China or anywhere else, and such comparisons have limited usefulness. Would you have been a Philadelphia lawyer had you been born in Philadelphia instead of Jamaica? It’s great that you want the same kind of success you’ve experienced to be shared by other people who look like you. But wrap your head around this possibility: People who want the same kind of success for everyone are not necessarily racist because they want to ignore race. Some people honestly believe that the American ideal offers the best way for all of us and that a continuing focus on amping up racial acrimony is not the way to eliminate racial acrimony. This idea that somehow white America wants to keep black America down is just insane. I’m sure you can find some retarded Klan guy in trailer somewhere who would say that, but the vast majority of America recognizes we are all in this boat together.

Ralph is right that America is exceptional. Nowhere has so much prosperity been generated for so many. No other country has the level of social mobility that America has. There is a reason people from all over the world come to America, and it is not because it is an oppressive capitalist plutocracy where opportunity is restricted by racism.

That nothing human is perfect should be recognized by any thinking adult. Does the mindset of your blog advance things towards that ideal or does a commitment to resentment and reflexive opposition slow the wheel of progress? By selectively choosing stories and narratives designed to nurture a sense of grievance, you limit the path to the one visible between the blinders.

To give your post some moral ballast, you linked to an account of shameful lynching that occurred over 80 years ago. That such acts happened here should never be forgotten, but how many lynchings have happened in your lifetime? Every year, more young black men are killed by other young black men than were ever lynched in the 145 years since the Civil War.

Lots of Blacks do just fine. There are, as in every society, some people who struggle in America, only some of whom are black. If so many blacks do so well, can the main problem still be white racism? Or might it be something else? Have liberal programs made things better, or have things actually gotten worse for those left behind?

You accuse Ralph of being in denial of America’s past. Are you in denial of America’s present?

mellaneous said...

Anon 12:33 it seems you think too much of yourself, not only was your diatribe inaccurate -- that is unless you are blind or dishonest, or both- it reveals your own lack of knowledge about the problems of race in this country.

There was nothing conciliatory about the letter starting with the opening sentence which has no relation to what Field does at all.

"Playing the victim status," really and then lifting this straw man and calling it "fraudulent." And ending the letter by suggesting that Field exit the country stage left, doesn't sound like a sincere effort to dialogue to me. Its like inviting someone to leave your house while saying you want to have an honest and forthright and respectful conversation.

And you miss the whole point of Field's blog, he is extremely democratic and censures no one.

And surely he wouldn't censure you, since all you did was demonstrate your own narrow brand of thinking.

Surely you didn't think it was profound or even revelatory!

Of the above programs, only Social Security and Medicare/Medicaid are, in any sense, wealth redistribution programs.

Europeans looked at the US and saw our Progressive and Socialist efforts...and wished they could have fairness. Now, we have the caste system and the rich-solely-by-birth.

The vast bulk of "wealth" in the US is accumulated by the inventiveness and hard work of those who have it. Inheritance is not a significant path to wealth in this country.

Meanwhile, in many cases of of families with inherited wealth, the successive generations have worked hard to build up what their forebears began.

Why else did the businesses welcome millions of immigrants? We already had folks here willing to work...had the skills...and gave honest labour.

When it comes to labor-intensive businesses, the cost of labor is crucial to the success or failure of the business. In the US, 99% of all shoes are imported. One of the only quality shoe-makers remaining in the US is the Allen-Edmonds shoes company in Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, I'm sure lots of people in the US can operate shoe-making equipment. But, it doesn't matter because labor is too costly for shoe-makers to run profitably. Same story for most clothing.

Same story for the steel industry. These days, most of the steel made in the US is Specialty steel. Commodity steel comes from other nations.

Bottom line -- if the lowest priced labor were really the issue, then everyone in Haiti would have a job. But employers have no interest in Haiti because worker productivity is way too low. You don't understand the concept of "productivity." When it comes to low skill jobs, American workers must compete with workers in Pakistan, Bangladesh and China.

But, the profit could be far, far more if you imported unskilled, illiterate, desperate peasants from the 'rice fields'.

Those people come here of their own free will. Meanwhile, there are fewer and fewer no-skill, low-skill jobs every day. When I was in high school lots of guys worked in gas stations pumping gas. No more. Those jobs are gone because minimum wage is higher than the cost of having the customer pump his own gas.

Problem was, once their kids got them that eveel school and socialization...they wanted the same wage as gawd-fearin' wites.

When a kid graduates from engineering school, he generally gets a decent job. Race doesn't matter. But one reason it doesn't matter is that only asians and whites go to engineering school. Blacks studying engineering are a rarity.

Why else the desire to eliminate public schools?

The goal is to replace bad schools with good schools.

However, since a school is defined by the students who attend classes in the school building, the heavily black schools reflect the lives of the black kids enrolled in them. Black kids rarely get as far as calculus, physics and chemistry. Their English skills are subpar. The problem lies in black culture.

They ran out of cheap immigrants...so they moved the factory.

No one goes to college to obtain a low-skill factory job. Meanwhile, as GM, Chrysler and a long list of steel companies showed, bankruptcy is what you get when expenses exceed revenue for too long.

By the way, the Border Book Store is filing for bankruptcy on Monday. It will close at least a third of its stores. But it's more likely the company will go into liquidation because the bookstore business is just about dead. We are becoming a nation of e-Readers.

Try reading history...it is far more than wite dudez

Yeah. Read it on your e-Reader. You'll have to read an e-Book because it's no longer possible to run a profitable bookstore.

no_slappz said...

mold,

Ding-dongs like you love the notion that changes in the economic landscape are tied solely to the desire of a "capitalist" to make piles of money.

Unfortunately for you, the history of organized labor shows that the endless demands for higher wages and more benefits eventually leads to bankruptcy and the movement of jobs to more congenial precincts.

Microsoft and lots of other high-tech firms employ no union members represented by collective bargaining agreements. Yet they thrive and they pay everyone a lot of money.

Why is that? How do they do it? The answer: Value.

GM is now a much smaller than it was a few years ago. Why? Bankruptcy resulting from excessive labor and benefit costs. You can be certain the New GM is going to export more and more jobs to other countries. If not, it will face another bankruptcy. But rather than allow the company to go Chapter 22, as people in the junk bond business say, its US operations will go into liquidation -- Chapter 7.

That's what happens in the real world. Only nitwits with no understanding of the financial world believe the fantasies that fill your head.

The Post Office is a dead man walking. Why? Wages and benefits are too high, and way too much union opposition to automation that reduces the number of jobs. If Pitney Bowes were put in charge of the Post Office, it would get back on track and taxpayers would no longer have to subsidize the operations.

Rev. Right

"If so many blacks do so well, can the main problem still be white racism?"

I don't believe that anyone said that it was the "main" problem.

However, it is still a very serious problem reflected in the attitudes of people like yourself who feel totally comfortable lecturing and lambasting black folks for "hypersensitivity" and "seeing racism everywhere"" while at the same time you react hysterically to any recognition of white racism or any criticism of people who happen to be white by blacks.

You have a problem with "equality".

You seem to feel that it's a self-evident right of your to offer opinions on race, politics, economics, etc....but you resent when blacks do it.

Especially when it's in opposition to your views.

"Have liberal programs made things better, or have things actually gotten worse for those left behind?"

I'm still waiting for you guys to detail all these "liberal programs" that black folks are supposedly receiving that are unavailable to anyone else.

Conservative policies have certainly made the situation worse.

Under conservative government, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer.

Low skill jobs are outsourced and workers are laid off while American companies record profits.

The War on Drugs and the rush for mass incarceration has ruined the futures and opportunities of millions of young men of color who have committed the same crimes as whites who have money for lawyers or are offered rehabilitation programs.

You just don't want to HEAR about it.

"Ralph" said,

"What is it that makes you hate America and white people so much?"

"Ralph", you obviously don't know anything about Black history or about the salient statistics that describe Blacks' existence in the United States at the present. Otherwise, you wouldn't ask such a question.

If you understood anything about the Black people in America, you would ask, 'How can Black people continue to tolerate living in America in the face of these statistics and realities?'

For example, although Blacks are 12.8% of the USA, there is not a single Black US Senator today. Not even one. We are 00.00 percent of the US Senate.

This travesty could be corrected if the two US Senators from each state were elected from two separate districts, each of which was comprised of half of the state electorate, rather than in at-large state-wide election districts. Election from districts would result in minority-majority districts in some states.

US Senators should be elected in in two districts per state, each of which has half of the state's population.

It's a well-known fact that as Blacks gained voting rights, cities tried to prevent us from winning seats on city councils and other boards by implementing at-large elections, where the white majority of the city could overrule any Black candidate.

It is not clear from the US Constitution that there would be any Constitutional barrier to the two US Senators being elected from two districts per state.

White people have utterly no concern that Blacks lack any representation in the US Senate, and have even less desire to rectify the problem.

That's just one example of why I "hate America", but if you read the American Journal of Color Arousal, and the Francis L. Holland Blog, the Police Brutality Blog and particularly the BANNED Francis L. Holland DailyKos essays you will know why I hate America, even if you don't and cannot ever understand.

Meanwhile, Randall Robinson (from Transafrica) and I have simply decided NOT to live in the United States at all.

Here in Brazil, it's illegal to call people color-aroused epithets or discriminate against people based on their skin color. In the United States, there is a Constitutional right to hurl color-aroused epithets and insults.

If you're tired of being called the "N" word, then move to Brazil, where having that awful experience can by law lead to the culprit being jailed and having to pay a penalty to the victim(s) and/or community service, usually in a state-mandated negotiation with the victim(s).

To be poor and white in America basically means you’ll probably stay poor and white.

Or join they join the military because they find no other reasonable chance for advancement without putting their lives at risk or come back from Iraq with a limb shot off just to pay for college.

Why not the same rules for other races? Racism on full display before our eyes but yet Field is called the racist. Sad.

"Black kids rarely get as far as calculus". Um, no Slapz, few American kids get as far as calculus, physics and chemistry. There's a reason most professors of higher mathmatics in many universities come from China, India, western Asia and the Motherland. Very few white kids make it that far.

Field. I'm still in law, but I do grunt work for other litigators.

But yes, I want out.

I hope some day to stop saying, "I gave up my career in show biz for this" to "Babies I'm back!"

Alicia first calling the President Hobama makes you sound childish and ignorant. what happened to your 300 I.Q.? You have no credibility here.Are you so distant from reality that you believe Alex Jones a paid operative of the right, the Koch family, and Glenn Beck's bullshit? Alex Jones is also a friend of Charlos Estavez aka Charley Sheen. You actually believe what ex-CIA agent Larry C. Johnson said about the POTUS? You are OBSESSED with the POTUS and either you need help or are a highly paid operative of the Koch family or CIA. Gee what raging capitalist supports the President? None!

Van Jones supports him.

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan supports him.

Rev Jeremiah Wright supports him.

Former Panthers and Black Nationalist supports him.

The only people that don't support the President are Republicans, Tea Baggers, Stormfront, racist billionaires, Fox employees, Uncle Toms, Aunt Jemima's AND YOU!

You sound very delusional almost like the gentleman that was obsessed with Dr. King's mother and killed her, or the blackwoman that stabbed Dr. King in the chest.

Either you need help or are a Ratfucker.

President Obama’s own work in 1983 for Business International Corporation, a CIA front that conducted seminars with the world’s most powerful leaders and used journalists as agents abroad, dovetails with CIA espionage activities conducted by his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham in 1960s post-coup Indonesia on behalf of a number of CIA front operations, including the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation. Dunham met and married Lolo Soetoro, Obama’s stepfather, at the East-West Center in 1965. Soetoro was recalled to Indonesia in 1965 to serve as a senior army officer and assist General Suharto and the CIA in the bloody overthrow of President Sukarno.

New details on Obama’s CIA front employer

(WMR) -- WMR has obtained additional details on Business International Corporation (BIC), the CIA front company where President Obama spent a year working after graduating from Columbia University in 1983.

BIC used journalists as non-official cover (NOC) agents around the world. The firm published weekly and fortnightly newsletters for business executives, including Business International, Business Europe, Business Latin America, and Business Asia.

On February 24, 2009, WMR reported: “For one year, Obama worked as a researcher in BIC’s financial services division where he wrote for two BIC publications, Financing Foreign Operations and Business International Money Report, a weekly newsletter.

“An informed source has told WMR that Obama’s tuition debt at Columbia was paid off by BIC. In addition, WMR has learned that when Obama lived in Indonesia with his mother and his adoptive father Lolo Soetoro, the 20-year-old Obama, who was known as ‘Barry Soetoro,’ traveled to Pakistan in 1981 and was hosted by the family of Muhammadmian Soomro, a Pakistani Sindhi who became acting president of Pakistan after the resignation of General Pervez Musharraf on August 18, 2008.

“WMR was told that the Obama/Soetoro trip to Pakistan, ostensibly to go ‘partridge hunting’ with the Soomros, related to unknown CIA business. The covert CIA program to assist the Afghan mujaheddin was already well underway at the time and Pakistan was the major base of operations for the CIA’s support . . . BIC had long been associated with CIA activities since being founded by Eldridge Haynes, a self-professed liberal Democrat. The BIC headquarters was located at the prestigious address of 1 Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in Manhattan

Francis Holland, "Here in Brazil, it's illegal to call people color-aroused epithets or discriminate against people based on their skin color. In the United States, there is a Constitutional right to hurl color-aroused epithets and insults."

I asked my Brazilian neighbor if there was any prejudice in Brazil and she said "YES" there is plenty. In fact, that's WHY she left Brazil.

So Francis, what the hell are you talking about?

moozlum kidding:

farrakhan said mike tyson was not a rapist too...so????

Second only to “Sankofa”, “Mandingo” is a classic film on the brutality of African
slavery in America. In a bloody scene, star Ken Norton is forced to maul a fellow slave as
white masters and mistresses cheer. It is a haunting scene; from which ghosts spooked
me as I watched Mike Tyson chew on Evander Holyfield. Centuries later, Black men still
shed each others’ blood for show.

Perhaps now, after Mike has publicly mauled a champion, in view of millions, his
unconditional defenders will consider that he may have raped a groupie, late one night,
when they were alone in his hotel room. Now that he has maimed a stronger man, before
the world, they will consider that he may have brutalized his ex-wife, and other weaker
persons, in private. We all display our best behavior in public. What is Mike’s worst?

that mf hobama is the worst and most evil cia baby politico in history

and history will document that!...bet!!!

hobama is a slumlord rat who pimped rev w and the tucc and all of chi!!!


Hobama has never been a wimp! Indeed, Hobama is a stone cold brawler when he is bashing and ignoring black “mongrels”. He was a Chicago gangster when he robbed the poor to pay over 23 trillion to beloved banksters. He was ruthless when he slandered and axed Reverend Jeremiah Wright. He was a victorious warrior against Hillary Clinton and John McCain. He was a legendary thug when he slew politicos in Chicago . He was heartless when he evaded the murder of Donald Young. He was fierce as he denied the outing of Larry Sinclair. And, Hobama is a fearless fellow Republican whenever he is making demonic deals that slay his most ardent Democratic fans. He is brazenly angry whenever he is attacking anyone who dares to disagree with his rabidly elitist and warmongering antics!

No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am 'toxic' in terms of the Obama administration," Wright wrote the president of Africa 6000 International earlier this year.

"I am 'radioactive,' Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally!" he wrote. "Any advice that I offer is going to be taken as something to be avoided. Please understand that!"

Oh "Lawd" Field..what's going on with these comments!!! How do you stand it?

Anonymous said...

I cannot believe you actually asked me "how can I be a narcissist and hate myself?" Self-hatred is the etiological development failure of the narcissistic personality. The attempts to be superior are compensatory. I don't believe you are as educated as you claim to be. You don't care enough about what you say to people to research what you are talking about. This is the behavior of a narcissist; one who believes it is not necessary to make an effort to deliver correct information to readers. As to psychiatric intervention, I'll save you the trouble of wasting your money. Narcissistic personality disorder is not responsive to intervention. The narcissist only learns how to be a better narcissist in the therapy situation. Thus, for you, psychiatric intervention is contraindicated. You are stuck with yourself and the "yes" people you attrack as narcissistic nourishment. Look it up. I believe people deserve to hear from someone who knows of what they speak. Condolences. You are not only a race baiter, you are also a slave to attention seeking.

AbuAmirah said...

First off, Alicia Banks is fucking crazy. Now, Field, thanks for your well reasoned, articulate response. Why is it that CONservative mother'fers always drop that "If you don't like it, then you can leave" card? Anyway, keep doing what you're doing.

field negro said...

Thanks AbuAmirah, I plan to.

Anon@ 8:55 PM, who said I was educated? I sure never said I was.
(That would be my parents and my sister. [All Doctors]I was always the dumbest one at the dinner table) If I was I would have known what that big word you used meant.E-T-I-O-L-O-G-I-C-A-L?

Color me impressed.

"You are not only a race baiter, you are also a slave to attention seeking."

Now why did you have to use the word,"slave"?

See, and I just started to like you.

alicia banks said...

aa:

thanks for the compliment!!!

all my s/heroes are/have been called crazy

now answer my valid lingering questions and stop playing craxy like a fox!

Narcissist don't "like" people. They like the attention they believe is congruent with their level of importance. Ergo, I haven't "lost" your liking me. I said "slave" because narcissism is color blind. Ethnicities aside, nacissists go to extremes to attract narcissist "food." Like your blog. A blog with an inflammatory name such as yours invites all kinds of attention. I might guess if you are from a family of high acheivers, this may be your compensatory activity. Talking to rote thinkers. Words have context which impact their meanings. Check the dictionary, on slave. Okay, well, I "done this", and you don't provide enough in the way of interesting responses to hold my attention. Good luck to you.

Field: This Southern American of mixed Cherokee & Irish descent is feeling your response. Whenever an Alabama Land Baron grew tired of oppressing Black Folks, Native Americans, Irish Catholics & Germans were almost always next in line. That is unless one of those pesky, Jewish lawyers from Eastern Europe could be accused of stirring up the sharecroppers & steel workers. The Alabama Legislature won't even repeal our antiquated, racist state laws because they secretly hope that a future wave of ultra conservative federal judges will strike down the rulings that declared them unconstitutional. Hold their feet to the fire Field. This nation will revert to its old ways if we allow it.
