"Reverse racism" and other fables.

Tonight I am going to do a cut and paste job from a very talented blogger.


Because whenever I see something that's worth sharing I try to give it to you.


Besides, it's Black History Month. And now, more than ever, it is time to learn from each other.


Oh, and check out the link in the middle of Ms.Mitchell's post of comedian Aamer Rahman talking about reverse racism. ****


"It’s really disturbing when injustices that are linked to racism are brushed aside and we’re called race baiters for bringing it up. As if I’m imagining things. As if I created race. As if being silent is going to make everything okay. And the coup de grâce is that some unfortunate souls actually believe that by pointing out racism, that makes someone a racist. I find this to be a signifier of the failure of the education system. So many people know how to throw around the term, but so few know what it really means.


For everyone that’s confused, racism is a historically rooted systematic structure based on the creation of racial hierarchies. It’s racially based prejudices reinforced by systematic power structures that design global economic disparities, social guidelines for imprisonment, medical apartheid, and the socially determined value of life.


Just being born a Black woman in this current state of affairs, I simply do not have the power or capacity to be racist. And if it’s hard for you to grasp this information from me, please do Ask The White Guy and this really cool Bangladeshi Australian guy who gets it:****


Still, I don’t deny that as an African American woman in 2014 I am born with a certain level of privileges that my ancestors didn’t have. For one, I wouldn’t be writing on this blog because it would have been unlawful for me to read or write. I wouldn’t have gotten two master’s degrees (that I’ve been told Affirmative Action paid for) because that too is a punishable offense. For being an uppity negro wench, I would have been hanged and buried in some unknown location and it would have been deemed justified because I didn’t know my place. That fact is the disturbing root of this discussion. These seemingly innocent demands of my silencing are born out of that same legacy. These are “be quiet or we’ll reprimand you” statements. 


Instead of trying to silence discourse, just admit that you’re a coward. Just admit that comfort and dare I say privilege is more important to you than justice. No we can’t talk about the prison system, the fall of the middle class or the military industrial complex without race. No, no, no! To exclude race from these topics is to participate in the erasure of reality and to disregard the validity of millions of lived experiences. These “reverse racism” and “race-baiter” accusations are built on nothing more than modern day fairy tales.


The racial divide is real:"[More here]


Ms. Mitchell, if you have an offering plate you need to pass it.


Church!

Was that Mary Mitchell from the Sun-Times? Anyhoo, great post and on point. Before we have a discussion about race/racism she is exactly right, we have to agree on a definition of racism because whites and blahs have totally different defs but that's understandable because our experiences are totally different. The part that's disturbing to me is that many whites dismiss our experiences but that's always been the case. Just like some commenters here they believe all things are equal and make false equivalencies. Well, great topic and I wish many would learn from this but my guess is they won't.

Suffice it to say that when I'm done, I'll have more education than everyone in your family could live three lifetimes and have you stupid anal orifice.

And you and your elk will be addressing me as Dr.

Me and my "ELK"

you will never be a Doctor and yes you did five years ago say you were getting courted at the best medical schools to spend all the affirmative action money.

You are already too old granny, not to mention obviously too illiterate stupid and Dumb to ever become a doctor. You're a liar and a fraud.

pretty much.

while it can't be church without Him/His Word, though many try + fail without Him...

what is spoken can hold some Truth.

degrees have exactly nothing to do with being able to speak the Truth.

in a nutshell...she just said, she won't be quiet. she is going to tell the Truth + shame the devil.

how many years would one need to follow a lesson plan to reach that conclusion? this is not even high school level common sense people...

come on now.

really, ya'll?

that pledge of allegiance nonsense in early grade school had me on edge as a small child.

like, why we lying big people?

daily?

all grand + out loud as a group? wt...

lol.
_________________

color me "crazy"...

but i would prefer Church of Philadelphia, Rev. 3:7=13 ALL day over her very basic simple observations that folk are calling "church". though she makes sound observations.

just sayin'

LOL.

if i say it a different way, it cracks me up. rather than irking me. i pray no one takes offense;)

decided to change the way i was looking at things...

what if everybody just chose to call things what they are? refused to bow to fear?

i don't get THAT...maybe somebody with some degrees can bring me up to speed on that?

'cause lady woman in the post has two degrees and she ain't having it. what's the deal over here in the agnostic fields?

why folk wanna just focus on the Black...without attaching the spiritual side of the wild ride?

what's that about?

focusedpurpose said...

Pilot X-

i would Love to hear your thoughts.

you attempted to command me to stop talking to trolls a few threads back. nevertheless, i ask you;)

how 'bout that, sir?

to be clear, i AM interested in your take on these questions:

FP, "degrees have exactly nothing to do with being able to speak the Truth."

Yes! Now that is what I call "Church". Preach it...

No matter how many degrees one may get, if you can't see the Truth, then you are just an overly-educated proud fool.

Now don't get me wrong. Degrees are useful and good to have. But they do nothing for character, or give you a leg up with GOD on Judgment Day.

FP, you are beautiful and have insight into the simple profound truth. Thanks you. This blog needs you to point out the truth without sugar coating it with bs.

PilotX:Freeing Slaves from the republican plantation since the 70's said...

Well FP, I do try to ignore the trolls as much as I can but sometimes I'm in a mood and need to fool around. I also dislike misinformation to stand so I sometimes take the bait. One of my many faults huh? Ha!
I don't think it's fear but after a while you just get tired of blah sites getting hijacked by racists with an agenda. Think about how much cooler FN would be with a bunch of progressive minded people of color just kicking back and chatting it up. One can dream right?

----------------------
I am surprised that PilotX thinks Blacks and Whites have different definitions of racism. When did that happen? Was it doing Jim Crow? the Civil Rights? When did the definition of racism CHANGE?

Blacks sure as hell didn't change it. But many have accepted the change as re-defined by some Whites. Of course, the so-called 'new' definition works to the favor of Whites and against Blacks.

So, what's new? They've ALWAYS flipped everything on us and we've accepted whatever they gave us. Your comment proves it.

Hell the Gates incident was further proof Whites don't want to deal with the truth. And neither do a lot of Blacks known as uncle toms. The thing is we are so confused and screwed up in America, no one knows which end is which.

AND, we are scared of the truth. So we stick our heads in the sand hoping it will go away. IT WON'T.

We are all wedded to the truth because we come from GOD who is the TRUTH.

Or they could try reading Field's posts for a change.

Come on racist white folks/jigging Toms on this blog, this isn't rockect science because if it were, MOST of your dumb asses wouldn't "get it" anyway.

ALL it takes to understand the racist plight of Black folk is to give a damn about a race other than your own!

Of course, that requires seeing some other than yourselves as human.......now that I think about it, fuggeditaboutit, the history of man in the world tells me that will NEVER happen.

PilotX:Freeing Slaves from the republican plantation since the 70's said...

Good point Doc but in this country too much energy has gone into dehumanizing us so it will take a while to undo the damage. Some folks are so invested in the idea that they are superior because of the color of their skin it's a shock to their reality when they find out it's not true. Were getting to the point where things are getting better but we still have a ways to go.

If I were White I would see no reason to give up my superiority status to Blacks. It just would not make sense...Period.

Of course, we would like and deeply wish that would happen but IT WILL NOT. Why? Because Whites would lose their identity and no human being is willing to give up their identity as the superior race.

Dr.Nǚwáng said...

@PilotX, I think you're right. But as long as PWTs think sorry lives are due to the success of Black folks, things will NEVER change to any significant extent.

And the Repubs will keep their "base" into eternity.

White privilege is a status that Whites thoroughly enjoy. It's great to be born White and in America.

Now Dr Nuwang wants Whites to give up their privileges 'for' her? GTFOH.

PilotX:Freeing Slaves from the republican plantation since the 70's said...

You got it Doc, it started years ago when the Scotch/Irish came here with an inferiority complex so they held the idea that "at least I'm not a N****er" and it helped them with their cultural identity. That shift lead us to where we are, had slavery remained strictly economic we wouldn't have seen the level of racism we did. While the southern strategy still works it is becoming less and less effective, see the last two presidential elections as evidence. The gop must exppand their base in the coming decads or they will see further declines in their support.

Bill said...

Right-wingnuts win, Obamacare delayed.

Oops, it wasn't the right-wing winning, it was Obama's decision to push the deadline past the, as CNN puts it, "the pivotal midterm election."

Even CNN, pushing the faux talking points admits it's a political decision.

What happens to all those people that lost their insurance, are they now screwed for the next year because the democrat party screwed Obamacare up and don't want to lose political power?

Oh, I see where you are coming from. Different states of mind standing for what they think is right.

The question is, who is right? Is there anyone right?

I mean, who started this evil mess anyway?

MLK said we must learn to live as brothers and sisters or perish as fools. Of course, nobody believes that.

Frankly, I am sick and tired of the whole mess anyway because it is wicked and evil. And there seems to be nothing to stop it.

The Evil of racism is ruling the earth and America. I sometimes wonder if human life is worth living for some of us, esp the poor, degraded and hated.

KinkyCon said...

The smell of desperation.

The race hustle isn't what it use to be.

Back in the day, calling people racist would silence dissent. Race hustlers were quite effective playing the race against people they disagree with.

Times they are a changin'.

People are fighting back.

Trumping race cards with facts. Exposing DukeLacrosse/Zimmerman race baiting.

Reverse racism exists.

SCOTUS and courts throughout this country have said so.

The race card/race hustling continues to lose its effectiveness, reverse racism continues to be exposed in cities/businesses that are black run, the more angry and desperate the race industry will become.


Ms.Mitchell is a great example.

Field? Who's idea was the image you used?

That is so historically INACCURATE that it fries me around the edges.

I lived through that era. The Panthers were about defense of the Black community, Klan was about terror. Tell me when a Panther went into a white person's house and took someone out and lynched them?

Don't ever let someone change our history.

The panthers were also all about killing whites, selling drugs, and pimping.

Anon, I can't say who's right or wrong because everyone's definition is based on experience. There seems to be an imbalance of experience because some peoples' opinion of us is based on stereotypes and biased media. Now as we are becoming more intertwined we are beginning to understand each other better but we do have a way to go. The comments section of this blog is a cross section of society. If only we could talk to each other instead of talking at each other.

KC @ 11:46AM- folk like you talking about "race baiting" miss the point of adult Ancient convos...like the Bible described little babies that you are.

therefore, i cannot get mad at you.

i will ask why you folk don't talk about the NONSTOP lies ww tell re: rape + everything else?

had one of 'em make a lying ww appearance in the Zimmerman case even. lol. since ya'll just can't stop talking about the Duke case. which, for the record, no one who was not there, knows what happened. man's "law" stays on the wrong side of Truth + Justice.

period.

here's what's so:

white folk, and the colored happy slaves that side with ‘em, that seek to miss the wicked plucked from earth biz -might want to get familiar with Him/His Word. in this good 'ole "Chr-stian nation" built by Black folk for White folk...let ya'll tell it.

but then some of ya'll lie about that, too.

no, Black folk didn't build this nation. oh, that 400 years of forced free labor? forget about that. we've come a long way. we got poverty insuring gov’t programs to take care of that little white lapse in human behavior/golden rule observation.

the system CLEARLY hates ya'll Black folk. BUT we reserve the right to pretend that welfare programs do good, so we may ridicule you for falling prey to a system DESIGNED to keep you impoverished, broken, experimented on + outcasts.

those that we allow out of the lower/underclasses---must NEVER tell the Truth about what happens. they will see up close how things go down too. in their token seats/status/roles. honoring Him/His Word = quickest route to "no credibility" the way this has all been set up. the tokens play by the rules at all times. even the "pastors/preachers"...

look.

see.

then, stop whining about that!

we work hard!

we are smart!

we are White folk!

we killed + stole the land! it belongs to us!!!

get rid of the ww's baby 'cause we want our country back!!!

aka

Esau/Edom’s proud, before destruction song…

;(

lol! @ folk needing to just STOP it already...

birthright = all lies.

wake up.

in case you didn’t know…Abram is the same Abraham…father of many nations.

in the interest of removing all stumbling blocks from His People/my people’s paths.

those not with Him/His Word will learn:

see it again/confirmed in UNIVERSAL LAW here:

what you choose to believe is your business. i share because i understand that in white folks' racist churches...they steer clear of the Truth as much as possible. this is why there are so many Truth free wfolk on the loose, looking like their lying, lynching ancestors. while swearing they had nothing to do with nothing-while perpetuating racist lies.

lol.

you missed the nice lady’s point entirely. maybe you should re-read?

what she said was:

stop talking about nwo and all its demonic functions…’til folk want to discuss the whole race issue, honestly, in Truth.

maybe then the judgment will make more sense ya?

which goes right back to the UNIVERSAL LAW lying white folk + the happy colored slaves that Love 'em to the death; swear on a stack of Bibles is the “foundation” of this wicked to the very core nation.

i would draw some stick figures if i could to help you real “smart” folk Understand Almighty is NOT the One. that He/His Word will NOT be mocked.

lol.

instead…I AM going to work on not trippin’ off the fact that i feel like a little girl trying to point out to the “teacher” that she is “teaching” HUGE/little white lies.

daily.

while trying to hold in how little i appreciated having my day hijacked with such utter nonsense. + give the appearance of cooperation with the sick twisted, lie infested, whitened to be damned experiment.

momma said: you wanna teach the class? or do you want good grades?

spent a lot of time compromising as a child.

have put aside childish things.

we can compromise on some things, but the Truth of His Word/Him...

not so much.

these lies do a true number on humanity. folks un-angling their eyes, bleaching their skin, sewing in hair (all colors!), and some more Yah got this all wrong/people are smarter stuff.

suffering the whole time for the disobedience to Him/His Word. while blaming/accusing Him/His Word.

the lies especially jack white folk though…

it becomes a challenge NOT to laugh at ya’ll.

for Real.

but that ain’t Right.

so with a straight face, from the heart, i simply suggest you folk get more facts/much needed clues.

that’s all.


Blessings to you.

It's all relative, but compare to you guys, yeah.

We've got conservatives too, but ours aren't insane. As a general rule they are wrong, but at least rational. You guys on the other hand have people that believe in creationism and the "teachings" of the likes of Ayn Rand.

If you have a society were people are so irrational that they view Rush, and Hannity as serious political commentators, rather than people who should be locked away in a padded cell, then your society is well and truly fucked.

Check out old media such as Meet the Press and you can even see the same language used by the racists of the day especially "race baiters". Deja vu all over again. Kinda like the new BSG "what happened before will happen again".

I saw, in real life, whites only signs, had family that lived in Albany, Ga., had family run out of town for being tired of being treated as less than human. None of you went through it, but now you have the nerve to pass judgment?

i was born to folk that resist. with an affinity for elders. born and raised in a part of the country that hasn't quite gotten the we's all free memo, just yet. lol. where some ww still seem to think folks peeling grapes + whatnot. lol! they are just low key with it now. no longer drawing on lips. plumping them up to be all mean without reason.

if you read soul on ice...then you know no one is making new facts over here. Black men that want a lot of props for their on-going trials/tribulations; act white when it is time to address their love of sexism. mistreatment of Black women. ya'll will howl long + hard about racism. then hit the get over it button on sexism quick! lol.

i call foul on that. the fact that folk couldn't for the longest see fit to denounce that boned head practicing rape on bp person pretty much did it for me and their movement. then add the additional shenanigans and i am done. though i can appreciate folk wanting to be armed and protecting their property. just seems getting the eldridge cleavers together would be priority. BW having more value than property and all. surely BM get this?

that's my point.

read books + asked plenty somebodies. metal head plated folk in the family. gifts for missing "curfews" imposed on Blacks.

asked folk from famous activists that thought Black women's place in the struggle was in the prone position to the everyday afrocentric talking, well adjusted to oppression, daishiki wearing, LOVE them some ww or do the mrs. eldridge cleaver bw version of things only when it comes to bw- lesser known activists.

nobody gots nothing on the topic. particularly when questions are phrased the way i put 'em. lol. folks stay ready to do the topic switch. or they get rather loud. lol. like if one can see clearly...they must not be able to hear.

not sure what facts you think are being re-written. but i respect your indignant passion on the topic. dang it!

lol.

i also see your point regarding the good that came from the Bp's efforts.

you know Scriptures has aliens, spaceships, reigning with Almighty, the whole nine, right? better than a movie. some of the places are right here right now. with exactly what is written happening, right now. it is wild. lol. you want to be apart of something. follow Him/His Word and Stand with Him on it. i promise you...things get Real interesting.

lol.

you know He/His Word is no respecter of persons, right?

said another way...anybody + everybody is welcome.

don't think we necessarily disagree too much. not sure what the "common" vs "scientific" notions are though. lol. i do think you have irked me in the most recent past behaving rather trollishly relating to me. unless i misunderstood.

so i thought i would be defiant and talk to you- one of the resident trolls directly. one need not be Anon to be a troll. this done as entertainment and a break from my to do list.

but we can call it a shout out in the interest of moving on;)

that's me being agreeable.

lol!

None of you has the stones to do what they did. None of you."

This is true.

I'll take a pass, folks 3,000 years ago didn't really have a grasp of what was going on in the natural world so they ascribed alot of stuff to an invisible deity. Not really my cup of tea but everybody's gotta have a bag.

They badmouthed the BP, but keep silent about how J.E. Hoover ordered food for the poor and hungry children and medical supplies in the free clinics vandalized and destroyed.

Yep, they started a lot of good programs for their community. The BP were educated people. Most social programs today are imitations of their programs.

Of course, granny sometimes standing for truth, can offer no proof.

Just more racial paranoia.

Thank you. And with that, I become invisible again.

Muah ha ha ha ha ha!

'ole Ronnie Reagan hoped all the poor that were to be fed by other activist groups' efforts developed botulism + died.

there has been evil on all sides.

just because folk have the mentality that there are so many BW...maiming, raping + breaking a few = cost of doing business. does NOT mean that i must agree. if speaking out against it, puts some BM in the line of fire- sobeit.

frankly...i wish the elder women would have done more of their part to address the injustice visited upon the lives of BW by BM.

during slavery + subsequent.

those BW that lack the courage to tell the Truth- should at the very least support the younger women coming through determined to free human beings. those young women that refuse to trade one type of oppression for another. teach the younger women the Truth. stop recycling generational lie after generational lie.

the average BW today deals with racism + sexism on some level daily. pretending it is all coming from NON Blacks is a game of pretend i refuse to play.
