No ordinary Joe.

I was going to name actor Joe Morton as my House Negro of The Day because of his comments recently about slave films coming out of Hollywood. But the more I read into what he said the harder it was to totally disagree with him and dismiss him as a Negro who belonged in the house.

First, I love my man's character in the television series, Scandal. (Yes, I watch it. And if any of you brothers reading this are being honest , you will admit that you watch it as well.)It's probably why I gave pause before tossing him in the house.

Also, this subject is a very complicated and nuanced one; it's just not something we can make into a black and white issue. (Pun intended)

So let's take a look at what he said:

"12 Years A Slave is a film that is beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, and told in a compelling manner. However, there are some questions, in my opinion, as to its importance. Paramount among those questions is, What does this scenario illustrate that we didn’t know or haven’t seen before? And why does such a film garner such popularity? And the list of questions goes on: Why are equal rights the greatest, and seemingly the only, commercial product for so-called black film coming out of Hollywood? Does this imply that mea-culpa-slavery-films are an artistic perennial for a predominately white audience?

Why are there few films about African American heroes, produced by Hollywood, as opposed to African American victims? Why has there never been a film about Nat Love or William Pickett (African American cowboys), Bass Reeves (the first African American lawman in the west who, if Reeves were fictional, would be a combination of Sherlock Holmes, Superman, and the Lone Ranger) or The Exodusters (African American pioneers who ventured west)? These are stories about people who took charge of their own destinies and were only victims of their individual circumstances, like their white counterparts. These are characters that are heroic, not victims.

It is very difficult for me, as an American of African descent, to view a film like 12 Years a Slave, as brilliant as it might be perceived, without being angered about the amount of violence perpetrated upon black flesh and black womanhood, without feeling that the self-worth of modern day African Americans is being diminished, without feeling that this kind of film enflames an omnipresent and smoldering mistrust of whites by blacks."

OK, my first thought: Why would I care if whites "mistrust" me because of their own fears and prejudices? Sorry, scenes of "violence perpetrated upon black flesh" does not "diminish" the "self-worth" of the "modern day African", rather, it is needed to teach the "modern day African" his (or her) history and to show him (her) how far he (she) has come in this country.

Maybe if the "modern day African" truly understood history, he (she) would not do so much to squander away the future. Maybe there would be a greater appreciation for the struggle to get us where we are and more focus on moving forward to make sure that we never find ourselves in that position as well.

Why must we sanitize and diminish our history because we are afraid of how white folks feel about us? Do you think, for a minute, that Jews had this type o mindset when movies like Schindler's List were being produced and marketed?

It was a rhetorical question. Of course not. But this is the problem with so many "modern day Africans", who have been co- opted and homologized by the trappings of the house; they forget.

Having said all of that, I agree with what Morton said about movies about African American heroes such as Love, Pickett and Reeves. African Americans need to see this side of their history as well; we need to see movies about brave and noble people of color surviving against all odds.

But to say that the people who were brutalized and ravaged by slavery are playing roles of victim hood is thoughtless and contemptuous. They had no choice, and history done honestly should show things as they really were.

I would argue that some of the slaves we are seeing being portrayed were also courageous and heroic. To endure the type of brutality that they did and maintain their humanity is heroic.

Joe Morton is an actor, not a historical a scholar or black intellectual. But, like all of us, he has an opinion, and he has as a right to express them. But, unlike most of us, he is a celebrity, and as a result his words have more meaning.

Joe Morton should think a little bit more about his words next time.

Are you understanding what he said up there? He's saying that Blacks increasingly mistrust WHITES, not the other way around.

At this point the mistrust goes both ways on many occasions.

My thoughts are that trust is the basis of any good relation,between individuals and society. So I feel that trust does matter a lot.

I have not seen this movie. I may, if and when I can see it in the comfort of my home, and then perhaps I can make a more informed opinion.

But, none the less, my feelings are,just upon reading over the post, that ones history should never be forgotten and definitely should be immortalized in all audio,visual, historic and artistic forms. As The Field points out.

Yet, it should not be the only form of artistic endeavor and expression.

Because this then totally limits and boxes in the creative expression of the artist.

My thoughts are that perhaps in film making, in order to branch out and expand fully, more emphasis should be given to the homeland. I would love to see that.

Romantic stories set in Kenya, The Congo, etc.,then perhaps moving on to America. So that there is a tie back to the great continent that is Africa. Not just the African American experience, which frankly is quite boring.

I would love to see movies like that!

Don't know if I'm making sense. Input and Feedback would be appreciated :D

Excuse me, I meant not just the typical 'American' experience type movie which frankly is quite boring :p

Bryan Ortez said...

I haven't seen 12 years a slave yet, I would like to or read the book.

I thought what would be different about 12 Years was that it is a true story. It also is the story of a free man who is swindled into slavery, showing how tentative the position of free black folks was in America at that time.

I think of slaves as heroic, they sustained families, generations, fought for their freedom, their humanity and dignity.

How many movies about slavery have ever been made? Roots, Django, 12 Years...

Someone on another blog shared after seeing Django with her in-laws, who are white, they told her they thought she enjoyed the movie too much.. white folks seem to think that discussing slavery brings the pangs of 'white guilt' I think white guilt is nonsense.

I think Desert's observation that that trust goes both ways is apt.

Black Sage said...

Paramount among those questions is, what does this scenario illustrate that we didn’t know or haven’t seen before? And why does such a film garner such popularity? – Joe Morton, Actor

The disposition of an African American as a slave gets a lot of attention due to the fact that it subliminally sends a message as to the position where white Amerikkkans would prefer blacks to be as a people. Downtrodden; a state of apathy; conforming; groveling; obedient and yes mam and yes sir when responding to whites. In other words, the position or state of being child-like is what whites would rather deal with than as parallel men carrying equal political, social and economic authority.

These are stories about people who took charge of their own destinies and were only victims of their individual circumstances, like their white counterparts. These are characters that are heroic, not victims. – Joe Morton, Actor

You’re correct Joe about those people taking charge of their own destinies. It’s just too darn unfortunate we don’t have the same character of black people in our contemporary settings. White folks should be happy about this.

Furthermore, you must remember Joe, history is usually told through the obscured lens of white people. This usually entails whites as being heroes and black people as the usual suspects or villains. The only manner in which to change historical inaccuracies is for blacks to begin a consortium of black owned studios and begin to tell to tell our own stories from our own perspective. It’s not about whites harboring feelings of smoldering mistrust by blacks. Phuck them, allow them to perceive thing as they want and uninterrupted, no matter how wrong they are, just like they currently are in most instances.

You must understand Joe, white feelings of guilt; feelings of being heroes; overwhelming feelings of being imperiled exist for reasons other than telling one side of the story or one side of history. Whites tell stories and make movies to prop up their own sagging self worth, their continuing troubled history involving their contact with darker peoples and always to further diminish the once glorious history of black and brown folks for them to feel inferior and unworthy.

SORRY WHITE FOLKS, IT’S NOT WORKING!

and perhaps Joe Morton might also want to think about producing a movie of his own :) One that will bring to bear all of his desires for what a good African American movie may/could be.

So many ideas...

Anonymous said...

Black Sage, you and Desert have very disturbing attitudes...Bryan too. This is the 21st Century and we need to 'moderate' what we say to Whites in America. Otherwise, it could lead to a race war. Is that what you want? I think not.

As Field said to Joe at the end of his post...Brothers and Sisters, 'think a little bit more about your words next time.' Let us build peace with the wm, not war or slavery....

That goes for you too, Brother PC. You are always out of bounds. You need to do something about your mouth.

See, this is the shit I don't like about you. You think because YOU do certain things, like watch that piece of shit called "Scandal", you think ALL Negroes watch it.

Well, let me be the first to tell you: ALL Negroes DON'T watch the same shit you watch. Some of us don't EVEN watch TV simply because it clutters the mind. I'd much rather read Scriptures or other Spiritual literature worthwhile than to watch TV.

I don't do a lot on the internet either. That's worse than television when it comes to cluttering the mind. The only reason I'm on this blog is because I have compassion and pity for my peeps. I recognize my peeps don't know what is being done to their minds. BUT, some of you folks had better WTFU.

A lot of you Negroes need to get yourselves together. Some of you are so bullheaded that you can't even see what's coming to us and it's hidden right in front of your face. Instead, you are busy watch Scandal and football games and cooking Turkey for Thanksgiving Celebration of the massacre of Native Indians and enslavement of Blacks..your own people. Some of you folks are just plain brainwashed.

You’re correct, this is why it’s imperative that people should stop making slave oriented movies! Obviously, you fall squarely in the category of which I mentioned above. You’re incrementally being steered down a designed path to think and respond to whites in a certain manner. You know what, …. I’ll stop here because CLEARLY I’m on a another level, …… a level of which you have no knowledge of! Have fun being a roboticized, contemporary slave!

@Ms. Focus, did I hear you mentioned from the previous post that you're originally from the south or have some type of connection? I knew there was something special about you sista Focus!

focusedpurpose said...

hollywood (the name is of the occult.) is a creation of the fake Hebrews, aka the jeWish.

if folks think these slave movies are to get folks to remember their history- think again. your enemy who pretends to be you is deliberately leading you astray. while psychologically battering you.

if you believe a lie over Scriptures and go astray...that's on you.

take the lessons from history. be Love. don't be stupid. be wise as serpents and as harmless as doves...as it is written.

Desert, you do a bit of Truth with nonsense quite well. i think you had a freudian slip moment, too.

lol.

i.see.you;)

"Romantic stories set in Kenya, The Congo, etc.,then perhaps moving on to America. So that there is a tie back to the great continent that is Africa. Not just the African American experience, which frankly is quite boring."

when folk talk Africa, discussing Hebrewism...still won't go away.

nicety (nice. nasty.) diss all the way around, when you cleaned it up:

"Excuse me, I meant not just the typical 'American' experience type movie which frankly is quite boring :p "

you are not the only stubborn one. i promise. we both do nicety well;)

point of agreement:

"At this point the mistrust goes both ways on many occasions."

simple.

as a side-note: if i were a man, i would be focused on what the men of Iceland put to work. they managed to jail their buckwild bankers...

ps. i don't need that foreign black dude with the white wife to tell me about being a slave, either.

most folks, feel like Desert couldn't help but to blurt out. lol. while they grin in folks' faces and pretend they otherwise. of course collecting coins where they can.

There is no movie that could make me trust white people any less than I already do.

Some friends of mine were discussing having seen this movie and almost wishing they hadn't. They also said that the majority of the people in the audience were white and, despite how they felt about the movie, they couldn't understand why more black people weren't there to support "our" movie.

Personally, I will never watch "12 Years a Slave", "DJango", "Precious", "The Butler" or any other nonsense perpetuated by Hollywood.

Firstly because white folks have made enough money off slavery, underpaid black labor and off our continued oppression. I will not donate to this cause.

Secondly, I don't do violence well. I don't watch slasher movies, horror movies and such because I find them vulgar and disgusting. I have absolutely no interest in watching black people get beat for the purpose of entertainment or even for the supposed sake of re-enacting history.

It's not worth the cost to my psyche or my soul.

Thank you FP. I love you too. I cannot express my thanks to you enough for being here. I haven't made the strong connection with God that you have but I'm working on it. Sometimes I get annoyed at God because HE seems to disappear on me. Then reappears when I least expect HIM.

I slowly realizing that HE 'never' leaves me, it's 'me' who leaves HIM for some bullshit. I know, I know...I'm a spiritual retard. Low spiritual IQ. The beauty of seeking God is that the more I seek HIM, my Spiritual IQ increases! I actually get more discerning insight and feel like the vision of GOD will come! However, in the secular world of the human ego, if you are a retard, you are shit out of luck. lol

I thank GOD for making it possible for all of HIS children to seek HIM "IF" they so choose. I sometimes wish HE would take the power of 'choice' away and end this madness. But HE is GOD and I am HIS servant...at least I am striving to be. We'll see how far I can go in this lifetime before I die...

Peace to you, Sister.

Chris Albertson said...

The following is from the 2003 revised edition of a Bessie Smith biography first published in 1972. I think it says much about Hollywood's mercenary attitude when it comes to portraying black people. Granted, there has been some enlightenment in them thar Hollywood Hills, but they haven't advanced much in the past 40 years. "Nothing But a Man" a low budget monochrome film starring Ivan Dixon and Abbey Lincoln, was released in 1964. It should have shown the way, but we got insulting exploitation films and the embarrassing "Lady Sings the Blues." When Susanne DePasse—who was responsible for the latter—call me to express an interest in adapting my Bessie Smith book, my answer to her was, "I saw 'Lady Sings the Blues,' to which she responded, "Oh, but we don't do that anymore."

Here's what I wrote in the later edition of "Bessie":

Film studios rely on outside readers for initial evaluations of new books. A 1972 Warner Brothers reader’s report on Bessie, gave a summation of Bessie Smith’s life as the book depicted it, but concluded that this was not recommended film material, because “Bessie Smith was not on drugs, and this is not the five-handkerchief stuff that ‘Lady Sings the Blues’ is made of.” Nevertheless, there was no dearth of interest in Bessie as film material, and one exploration predated the book’s publication. A Hollywood producer and erstwhile choreographer, Danny Dare, called to say that he knew I was working on a biography and that he was going to make a film with or without it, “so you might as well let us option the rights.” He went on to inform me that Dionne Warwick was up for the title role—that was all I needed to hear. When I told him Helen Hayes would be as good a choice, he seemed to believe me.

Because these movies are made by white liberals for the purpose of making them feel good about themselves, to demonize "other" whites, and secure the loyalties of black Americans.

"Get some shame fool" @ 3:13 PM
should read, while projecting:

Get some shame fool + a clue! old enough to know better, acting all brand new in public!!! trying in vain to double talk + divide+ distract...

when you stop projecting, you will see that you need to stand in the mirror and get that mixed up mess that is you together.

talk out both sides of your neck= fp call out. deal with it + compose yourself, as you get mad because i can see past all the teehee hee'ing you bring with your devilish, silly, mixed up, halloween candy distributing, thanksgiving celebrating self. i already posted the satanic calendar that you are right on schedule with...yet, you still have not managed a clue.

fools, according His Word, don't know Almighty nor respect His Word.

@ DeborahGirl. your comment = sane. anybody who sat through django...paid to get called the n-word over a hundred times, in public.

only a true Black fool- in Biblical sense- since demons got new school understanding + rules- would find that entertaining. add the spiritual aspect to it all...insanity.

small screen insanity like scandal also fits the bill. regularly folks enforce the stereotype of the bw on the side. so what if she got degrees, while she is...on the side?

smh.

Anon 4:08pm- sometimes, i wish Almighty would take away free will also.

i have reached the conclusion that's what makes people dumb.

those creatures not gifted/afflicted with free will...just do what they are supposed to be doing. quite a few human beings seem convinced we know better than our Almighty Creator and do whatever. then blame Him when our mess goes sideways.

we all fall down. the most important thing is to keep getting up and seeking Him.

since the resident devils went buck wild when i posted it before. let me do it again;)

somebody asked about Philly + Scripture.

Django Unbrained said...

12 Years a Slave is hailed by critics as a long-awaited breakthrough that finally dares to mention the subject of slavery after decades of the entertainment industry being controlled by the South.

As Leonard Maltin notes:

12 Years A Slave is a remake. What’s more, the original television film was directed by the celebrated Gordon Parks. Why no one seems to remember this is a mystery to me, yet all too typical of what I’ll call media amnesia. It first aired on PBS in 1984 as Solomon Northup’s Odyssey, reached a wider audience the following year when it was repeated as an installment of American Playhouse, and made its video debut under the title Half Slave, Half Free.

You can watch the 1984 version online for $2.99.

The remake has more whippings, though.

But that's the whole point, isn't it? The message behind the ongoing enshrinement of the rather amateurish 12 Years a Slave is that the cultural whippings of white folk for the sins of their great-great-great-great-grandfathers will continue until morale improves.

Henry Makow is a Canadian author, campaigner against homosexuality, public opponent of Zionism and Freemasonry, conspiracy theorist and the inventor of the board game Scruples. Makow believes a hidden hand is shaping modern history according to a long-term occult conspiracy agenda. He believes that democracy today is a charade and serves as an instrument of social control; the mass media generally stifles information and channels thought; and popular entertainment degrades us and diverts the audience from what is really happening. Makow has voiced his anti-homosexual, and anti New World Order views in his books.

Dr. Henry Makow is what you get when you cross a whiny, Warren Farrellian men's rights activist with a paranoid, David Ickian conspiracy theorist. In Makow's warped imagination, the world is being controlled by nefarious Judeo-Masonic/Satanic/Communist forces spearheaded by the Rockefeller Foundation, to which feminism can be attributed as a scheme designed to encourage women not to have children as part of greater depopulation efforts.

Makow believes that the world is controlled by the satanic Skull and Bones society, which is apparently an Illuminati front group. He knows this because George W. Bush once made the Satanic horn sign. Makow also believes that the Illuminati was created by Kabbalah Jews acting in concert with the Knights Templar. Feminism was apparently created as a way to get women on their side, and to encourage women to hate men, deign not to have children and take jobs outside of the home to reduce the population (the conspirators furthermore encourage homosexuality for the same reason). Makow refers to this as "the psychological sterilization of the human female", and naturally believes that the proper place of women is barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen and that all career women are covertly miserable on the inside.

Like some MGTOWers, and all too many mail order bride websites, he advocates that western men try marrying Asian women under the belief that they are more traditionally submissive, and has even written a decidedly creepy book about his experiences shopping for a bride in the Philippines.

Makow also believes in Federal Reserve crankery, and that Ezra Pound was going to blow the whistle on the Fed and then was jailed.

Anonymous said...

JFK, Lincoln, and James Garfield were all killed by the Illuminati/Rothschilds for trying to print money.

The Beatles were Illuminati mind controllers who promoted drug use, free sex and the New Age movement. As with Bush, Makow knows this because of a gesture John Lennon made with his hand on the cover of Yellow Submarine.

He is the author of several books, one of which, Cruel Hoax: Feminism and the New World Order claims that feminism was invented by Jewish international bankers to promote one world government, and also somehow connects feminism to 9/11 and calls on readers to "take back our heterosexuality". If none of this makes any sense, neither does Makow.

In his site, there is Wendy Thomas, who believes that family courts are controled by masonic judges who give away child custody to pedophiles and promote Richard Gardner's supposedly "pro-pedophile" theories. At least, in a stopped clock moment, another writer named Dan Absear is against people assuming that what he calls "doting fathers" are pedophiles just because they are actively involved in their children's lives, although he still makes his defense in a highly homophobic way (probably compounded by his wife, a "radical feminist lesbian, and likey a psychopath", leaving him for a "rather atractive female principal of [the] school").

Mrs. FN, i beg your pardon.



if that shoe doesn't fit...and even if it does...i make no apologies for Boldly speaking His Word at this blog.

this right here:

"Are you still stuck on Thanksgiving man! Give it up already! I mean really hellloooo, it's ovah, been ovar for a couple days now, in case you hadn't noticed, while ranting and raving at all the commenters on here!"

means i have failed to convey His Word. for this i AM sincerely sorry to my soul and ask Almighty to take away anything in me that displeases Him. i ask Him to show me how to be like Him. increase me in Patience.

the every day is a day to give thanks to Him message seems lost on you.

the day the enemy to your soul selected for your to practice certain rituals makes a mockery of Almighty + humanity. so forgive me if i remain on the look to Him message longer than the world would like. i understand i AM supposed to be shopping + focused on this mockery, in the secular- fawkery- aka "Christmas". move along! NOT.

it is, what it is. whether you like the concept or not. may Almighty send you a messenger that is able to speak into your listening.

when i look at my flow, considering how folks step to me- i AM Good. the meek shall inherit the earth. you have been double talking yet taking shots never the less. elders back in the day call what you do...throwing rocks + hiding hands. you are up in arms because i have got the nerve to tell you what i think about it + plus give you some Scripture because i Love you that much.

ps. if you are Mrs. FN a note off this blog would have sufficed. it should read like a thank you note, just in case you mixed that up, too. if you are not in fact Mrs. FN...

LOL.

i AM trying to get to heaven, so i will let folk reach their own conclusions;)

blessings to you.

Wow! Makow is crazier than a road lizard. Smh!

focusedpurpose said...

for Anon seeking to discredit Makow...

this is from the silence folk handbook. lol. it is routinely done to all others that speak like makow in any respect.

when i link to anybody, you will notice i often add: "...as a place to start."

any link is a place to start...not the end all be all.

question everything. let no one fool you by any means. as Granny + the Word says: study to show yourself approved...

you should know that i agree with the whiny assessment of Makow. i agree that in his white supremacy protecting mind...he equates "western" women to white women. his asian woman shopping is done frequently by western wm that have been burned by ww.

it is important to note there is not one person among US without flaws/sins...not a one. others have linked to his callous posts re: BW before. you had best believe i have taken note of his reckless with BW + some of all women ways.

here's where i differ from others.

i can listen to folks that i don't like nor agree with- they too have a voice + a message. i can even work with + leverage their gifts, at times. there is nothing about their different thought that threatens the existence of my thoughts or belief in Him + His Word.

makow has NOT published a single email i sent his way. nor has he had a response. that's fine, too. lol. we can agree to disagree on some points. where he is giving information worth additional thought...i share that. folks all over the world are waking up. makow is not the only source of info.

but he will post some Truth. i must give credit where credit is due. rather than running down a million reasons to discredit the speaker of some historical facts...why not scrutinize the facts?

if you don't believe the Rockefeller plan for humanity...you may want to google Aaron Russo. he spilled the beans despite the costs associated with doing so...

i know. i know.

conspiracy theory!

conspiracy theorist!


then just like that i AM supposed to be real still + quiet.

nope.

i.still.don't.care + won't.be.quiet.about.it.

i already covered this before. my question at the end of this post...at this point, i don't act like i have questions. with confidence i can say what i need to say...

http://focusedpurpose.blogspot.com/2008/05/conspiracy-theory-what-exactly-does.html


Makow is not the only one telling it. nor is he the only flawed person telling it. if that makes sense to you...if you can't wrap your brain around what i AM saying- that is fine also.

thanks for your comment. there is enough real info, even in your comment, anyone seeking truth can get familiar.

so while Makow and i don't agree on all points...i can sometimes give him some cyber dap.

like with this info:

Instead, you are busy watch Scandal and football games and cooking Turkey for Thanksgiving Celebration of the massacre of Native Indians..
=================


Oh man, how the America haters love this story! I’ve heard it over and over and over.

Did you know that the US gave these evil blankets to Indians all over the country, even here in California? Or Hudson Bay traders gave them to Indians in Canada? That those blankets wiped out “generations” of Indians? That the US gave them out to reservation Indians in the 1800′s? That Puritans gave out the blankets to Massachusetts Indians? Neither did I.

Ward Churchill said the US Army gave Indians them nasty blankets. He lied, and he should have known better.

It’s always nice to track down a myth, or is it really a myth?

Turns out, Americans never gave smallpox blankets to any Indians anywhere at anytime. Not the government, not the Army, not anyone. So we are absolved on that one. The incident occurred in 1763, before there even was a USA, before there even were Americans. The British done it, and the guy who is accused of doing it never even did it.

Further, it was in the midst of a horrible and genocidal war (on both sides) called Pontiac’s Rebellion, which occurred around the Great Lakes area during this time.

In the course of the Pontiac Rebellion, a famous British general named Lord Jeffrey Amherst wrote a letter to the besieged British troops in one of the forts suggesting that they give the Indians smallpox-infected blankets. Turns out that this had already been done by that very subordinate. Simeon Ecuyer, the Swiss-born British officer in command of Fort Pitt, was the guy that done it.

But no one knows how the plan worked out. The two Delaware chiefs who got the blankets were in good health later. The smallpox epidemic that was sweeping the attacking Indians during this war started before the incident. The Indians themselves said that they were getting smallpox by attacking settler villages infected with smallpox and then bringing it back to their villages.

So, it’s certain that one British commander, and not even the one usually accused, did give Indians smallpox-infected blankets in the course of a war that was genocidal on both sides.

There are a couple unspoken "rules" I'd like to share with you, with your new to THIS blog ass.

People say whatever they about and to, the people who post here, and most of the time, it's all in good fun.

But by mentioning someone's kid, now you're working yourself up on a virtual ass whippin' like you've NEVER had before.

For the most part the TRUE Christians among us could not give a rat's a$$ about your copying/pasting scripture as if you're some religious scholar which you can't possibly be because you didn't finish college. We all KNOW that neither Jesus NOR God boasted of who they were/are in the arrogant way you do here every day.

So what you NEED to do False Priestess, is "sat" you fake ass, non religious heathen self down somewhere before you create more pain, depression, and loneliness in your life.

And keep comments about the children of the people who post here out of your mouth before your fat a$$ has the stroke you've been working on for YEARS, and you loose to ability to either type or speak.

Now I'll keep the rest of your personal business off this blog if you show some respect for people's kids.

@Desert, I've known you on this blog and from you visiting mine when I had the time to blog. I've always liked you because you have a sweet spirit and have the gift of a peacemaker when things get too heated up between some of the people who comment on here.

I never took your playful convo with Field or anonymous as unladylike or evil. Laughter is good medicine for the soul. And that is very much needed on here at times. Sometimes Field's spirit needs uplifting like anyone else on here. I'm positive that he enjoys a few laughs on here too. He has a sense of humor.

You and I both have flirted with Field in the past. A few times in the past we did it together. Field and Mrs. Field know that we're just having fun with him to make him laugh. You and I are old women and the last thing on our minds is stealing a man or someone's husband or boyfriend. Puleeze! I guarantee you that Mrs. Field was laughing and probably shook her head and said that Desert and granny are a mess. Believe me, Mrs. Field is not a woman who lacks confidence in herself or her relationship with Field. People that have posted on here for a long time know that we've even joked with her in our post about whose man Denzel Washington is. I'm sure she has read it, laughed, and had a playful witty reply all in fun.

Be encourage and know that you are loved on here.

@Dr Nuwang,

You be encourage and stay strong! Not only are you going to be a doctor, but you're going to be a good one.

But, as you say it's been done in a lighthearted, even comically exaggerated way, and up to now everyone's been in on it, and yes hopefully it does break the tension of the debate at times, and as you well say,to lift spirits because it's not easy, Lord knows :)

As well as my ongoing wait for the seafarer Anon, who by the way STILL hasn't shown up!!! X(

I'm glad to hear that you enjoy it as well. At heart,I'm a clown, and I like to make people at least smile.

and hopefully The Field will still find time to continue to blog, 'cos as you know he's going to be famous soooon!!! X)

And we'll be here arguing back and forth over the politics and human interest articles he posts.

No ones going to hinder that!!!

@ Black Sage-

my position and comments are not high pitched.

though there is high pitched hyena cackling going on.

there are even demons suggesting that Almighty Himself is a golden calf.

LOL.

got 'em stirred up today...

@ Granny, i believe you have also thought it made sense to refer to Black people as "blah" people...

Every African in America needs to see 12 Years A Slave. Most believe that slavery was abolished "so this could never happen to me". The 13th Amendment to the Constitution states: Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.. Slavery is alive and well, ask those doing life in Angola or Parchman. Many are poor and had a lawyer you wouldn't trust to wash your car.
Anyone can end up in the same circumstance if you get bad luck, an ethically challenged prosecutor and unfortunate geography.

Awwww Granny! I love you! Thanks for such sweet and kind words! They made my night!

Hey ya'll, I LOVE you and Granny too!

MUAH!

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

That is so true Malik. Yes!

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Malik,

People seem to miss that word, EXCEPT that was written in that amendment. Slavery and indentured servitude was not fully abolished. The word EXCEPT is and has always be the catch 22 in it.

I tell young people that all the time. Prisons are plantations and in the world of capitalism business in those industries are flourishing. Oh yes, they are.

If that's true, there may be some hope for our inner cities, which could sure use a dose a slavery right about now.

Thanks Granny!

"...because the 'sane' among us thoroughly enjoy it." Only a crazy person would claim to be sane. YOU are jealous of FP. I have been noticing your comments. FP has too much intelligence and wisdom and depth for you to understand much. So you must try to tear her down....TNB.

DR NUWANG IS A JEALOUS SISTER.

Thanks so much Dr! I think that's exactly what I'll do! Can't be wasting time on that 'thing' :)

You are full of shit... You will do no such thing. You will go right on 'trying' to attack FP.

You have some folks fooled but you don't fool me.

"@Desert, I've known you on this blog and from you visiting mine when I had the time to blog. I've always liked you because you have a sweet spirit and have the gift of a peacemaker when things get too heated up between some of the people who comment on here."

Well, she's been nothing but mean to me. and I've known her for a long time too....longer than you.

And you and your blog was a waste of time and sucked some people in to believe in you. It turns out that you abandoned your followers and didn't have the decency to let them know. You, Desert and Dr Nuwang are ALL inconsiderate self-centered people who don't give a damn about NOBODY but yourselves.

I appreciate FP and the message she brings. To call GOD a golden calf is pure ignorance and about as far from GOD as you can be. That's where Desert, Dr Nuwang and yourself come in. At your age, or any age, you ought not to be in that state of heart about HIM where you think of HIM as a golden calf.

HE is to be worshipped and praised, not made into a golden calf. There is a story in the Bible re: this kind of thinking. Check it out. It didn't end well for those nuts who thought that way.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Child, if striking out with insults makes you feel better do what you do, but you're not fooling nobody but yourself. I'm praying for you.

Granny, do you go to church or believe in God? Is he the man with the white beard in the sky?

I ask because a lot of black churches have pictures of Christ and he is White.

How can you be free of shackles of the wm when you worship him? It's crazy and it makes Blacks crazy. And nobody is speaking about this very profound harmful mind boggler.

Anonymous,

No human being knows what God looks like or has seen Him. It tells you that in the bible. Also, it tells you that the kingdom of God is within you.

Where I am a member at, the only thing hanging on our wall is a huge cross. There is a picture of the pastor and his wife up in the far corner of the church.

Btw, we the people are the church. The building they call church is just a place where people of like faith go to worship and fellowship with like believers.

I agree with your last sentences. It does not make sense to me either because of what I said in my first sentence.

I have and read the book about Solomon Northup, but still plan to watch the movie week after next.

Nevertheless, I wish they'd make a movie about Martha W. Steward, Thurgood Marshall, the framing of Marcus Garvey, Toussaint L'Ouverture, Ida B. Wells, The Louisiana Native Guardsmen,etc.

I called FP's fabrication of a super being HER Golden Calf. Nobody else. Because it is what I observe. Like Muhammad and his sock puppet Allah, like Moses and his sock puppet Jehovah, which both these Holy "Profits" used to mindscrew the people, she uses her sock puppet, her personally created-for-her golden calf which she whoreships (hey do a little sumpin sumpin for me, I'll whoreship you)to "expose truths." THen she always disengenuously adds "It's all love." She reminds me of the Christians ... I may not "love" you, but Gawd does. So I have to also. How little-souled and hypocritic. Sickening and pathetic. Angry bitter self-righeous racist horror show.

ANd then she giggles and tee-hees that she got the devils riled up. Danger riles people up. Don't let this one near children. She and her Almighty,Her Jehovallah, are the real devils. They destroy children and are as bad as Kinsey. They are equal to him with their destructive memes.

September said...

Religious FANATICS are the biggest MURDERERS of all time. Moses and his Israelites slaughered men, women and children who were not THEM. Mohammad and his roving mobs of Muslims slaughtered men,women and children with Allahs blessings. Christian slave traders slaughtered millions with the lust for gold. She is of this lineage. Same spirit, different dog and pony show.

Forget the movies! The question that should be asked is "Why the hell are Africans in this country, at all?" I am tired of this ex-European crap, day in, and damn day out!!! They don't like us; we don't like them, and we're all pretending this shit is working. IT IS NOT; AND IT NEVER WILL!!!! Now what? Leave the country? Pay up those 300 years of unpaid labor due to the ancestors and you'll get your wish. I promise!!!!!!!
