Creating unhealthy perceptions, and celebrating a hero.

Baby K'Tan Baby Sling


If you figured out right away what is wrong with this picture good for you. If not, well, you are reading the right blog, because you have a lot of learning to do when it comes to America's problem with racial perceptions.


Now I am sure that the person who is responsible for creating the Baby K'Tan ad isn't necessarily a racist, but it just goes to show you the level of cluelessness and ignorance that is prevalent in yet another industry that has a tremendous influence over popular culture and thought.


It's all about the narrative, people, and in America, more than anywhere else, perception is reality.


You Negroes were understandably upset, and given our history with these types of issues I can't say that I blame you.


Finally, in honor of Veteran's Day, a little history lesson.


"The one life that U.S. Marine Dan Bullock had to give for his country lasted just 15 years, five months and 17 days.


The Brooklyn teen, after using a doctored birth certificate to enlist, became the youngest U.S. casualty of the Vietnam War when he was gunned down on June 7, 1969.


 It wasn’t until reporters visited the Marine’s family in Williamsburg that the nation learned the young man had been born on Dec. 21, 1953.


Forty-five years later, Bullock’s legacy is largely as a trivia answer in a fight that America would rather forget.


His old boot camp buddy Franklin McArthur says it shouldn’t be that way.
“He’s the youngest kid killed, and hardly anybody knows his name,” McArthur said from his Florida home. “It bothers me because he’s an historical figure, and everybody should know who he was.


“And hardly anybody does.”


A picture of Bullock’s boyish face adorns a wall at the city’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Lower Manhattan.


The slain teen looks forever east — frozen in time beneath his white dress hat, his lips pursed and his eyes fixed straight ahead.


His name adorns a street in his old Brooklyn neighborhood and a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Honolulu. His grave in North Carolina bears a stone paid for years ago by talk show host Sally Jesse Raphael.


Much of that attention was generated by McArthur, who says he remains haunted by the 15-year-old’s sudden and violent death.


Bullock was just 14 when he appeared with his bogus proof of age at the Albee Square Marine recruiting station in downtown Brooklyn.


He was a bright kid and big for his age — standing about 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds. But the rigors of boot camp at Parris Island, S.C., were too much for the recruit, who was still just 14.


“He had already kind of washed out when he got to my platoon,” McArthur recounted. “He had trouble keeping up.”


McArthur made it his mission to aid the young Marine, at times carrying the exhausted teen through the rigorous training. He made the commitment because he knew what put a rifle in Bullock’s hands.


“Dan joined the Marine Corps to help his family out,” McArthur recalled. “His father was a lumber worker and a sharecropper. He didn’t have any skills to get work in New York.”


The two men said farewell after boot camp. Bullock left behind his dad, his stepmom and his 13-year-old sister, Gloria, and wound up about 8,500 miles from Brooklyn.


The rifleman with the Second Platoon of Company F was at the An Hoa Combat Base in Quang Nam Province when a 1 a.m. firefight began on June 7, 1969.
The heroic teen, realizing his fellow Marines guarding the base perimeter were outgunned, began running back and forth to deliver much-needed ammunition for the better part of an hour.


Bullock’s commander, unaware of the dead Marine’s tender age, provided the details in a June 11 letter to his parents on Lee Ave. in Brooklyn." [More]


Come on Hollywood, give us a movie. Start working on it now so that you can release it in time for next Veteran's Day.

Brother Field, believe it or not, the ad was created by a Sister. I know because she is my cousin.

There is nothing racist about the ad nor is it wrong. It is just a fact of reality in our black community.

However, I understand where you are coming from: "Never talk about the Elephant in the living room" seems to be the way of folks like you.

You can NEVER sweep the lack of fatherhood in our community under the rug. It's there in neon lights, bro. EVERYONE SEES IT.

Field, that story about the baby carrier is fairly old news, like from several months back.

And it's very possible that the entire controversy was just the result of a bad coincidence. The company wanted to show both married couples and single parents on their packaging, and may have picked a black woman at random for the single mom, not realizing that they were sending an unintentional message to customers.

On the other hand, there have definitely been similar instances of product marketing where the message was unquestionably intentional. Like when Hallmark put out their Father's Day cards for single black moms ("You deserve applause for being the mom AND the dad!"). Their response to the ensuing controversy was completely unapologetic. Basically: Truth hurts. Deal with it, black men.

That story about the Marine was surprising to me, mainly because it was about Vietnam. I've never heard of any underaged Vietnam War servicepeople.

There were actually a lot of underaged guys that volunteered to fight in WWII, because that war was viewed as so essential to the nation. That "Freedom Isn't Free" talk usually rings pretty hollow because most of our wars aren't about freedom at all, but in the case of WWII, the freedom of the United States really was at stake.

The necessity of the Vietnam War was a lot more debatable, and there wasn't exactly a stampede of people eagerly rushing to enlist to go fight in it.

The draft had been eliminated and men were drafted by a "lottery" method. At least, that's the way it was 'suppose' to be. However, many Whites ran across the border to Canada to avoid going.

Meanwhile, Blacks as usual, experienced a lot of bad luck because they were drafted in overwhelming numbers. Consequently, they died in overwhelming numbers while their white counterparts who fled to Canada were "pardoned" by America.

I will never forget the evil our country did to bm. They are the fruits that fall near the tree of their forefathers who came to America to be free while crafting the evils of institutionalized slavery and racism.

Good Lord field, that is so sad. He may have been big but his face looks about 15. I find it hard to believe someone didn't notice.

My boyfriend at the time was drafted. He came back kinda crazy. I hate that Johnson did the civil rights thing and then went and blew it with the Vietnam escalation. I've wondered if Vietnam was a way of dealing with, killing, the Great Society. King's calls for economic justice and an end to the war made him more dangerous to The Big Cigars than calls for integration.

Heidi aka Mom said...

I looked long and hard at that Baby KTan ad and I finally decided that the problem is that when the mom and dad were shown, dad was not wearing the baby carrier. Let mom do it and watch admiringly as she does it all. Then I looked carefully and noticed the organic carrier was 100% cotton - perhaps cotton and black folks should not be emphasized because of slavery. I'm white mom and trying hard to see insidious things that I don't notice. I also thought the black carrier looked uncomfortable and the baby in the white carrier looked happier. After reading some of the comments I realized the issue was showing only a woman with one and a couple with the other. And the woman with no man in the picture was not white. I don't know if black single-parenthood was implied by the picture or inferred by the reader.

Wait.... What? Cracka is a racial slur?

The first black chick i asked out on a date told me she didn't like crackas.

I thought well, ok, not everyone likes Ritz crackers.

Years later i was dating a older black lady and she would text me while i was at work.

One day she texted me to hurry home, mommy wants a cracka.

So being the good white man that i am, i stopped by the store and got my Nubian princess some crackers.

It wasn't until i got in the door that i realized i was the cracka mommy wanted.....

No, the war had nothing to do with the Great Society that Johnson had envisioned. The war had everything to do with defeating and preventing the spread of communism.

FYI. JFK expanded our involvement after Eisenhower in Vietnam. Johnson followed the escalation to prevent defeat by communism.

Johnson truly wanted a Great Society(Blacks included) but that Vietnam War was the kiss of death for him.

Bottom line: The Japanese tried to take down Vietnam but ended up losing. The French tried to colonize Vietnam and lost in the end. Then the US tried and lost. Anyone who tries to defeat Vietnam is in for a long long fight with no guarantee of winning.

Now we are engaged in a war(s) in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and who knows who else in the middle east. We are fighting another very determined bold and courageous enemy with a religious faith that blights 'fear' of dying.

Considering we are scarred of dying and damn near everything, we are in a lot of trouble.

After Vietnam one would think America learned its lessons. It is obvious that we didn't because the situation in the middle east is a repeat except one thing: they will be coming for us on our own land.

America needs a memory. It could save a lot of heartache.

Nah. It wasn't some kind of conspiracy, just lots of wrong-headed beliefs. Overly complicated political theories and Cold War paranoia, with little understanding of the people and culture of Vietnam.

If you're really interested in understanding the boneheaded thinking of the people who caused that war, a good place to start is with the memoirs of the architect of the war, Sec. of Defense Robert McNamara:

In Retrospect: The Tragedy and Lessons of Vietnam

McNamara is pretty honest about all the things they got wrong.

Brother Field... big props for the knowledge of a war that was hurriedly forgotten. Yes PFC Bullock looks young because he/we were young.

The Draftees were older than the most of the volunteers. To be drafted you usually would have your 19th birthday prior to being drafted. By the time you arrive in Vietnam you were usually having your 20th year.

Now a lot of young men that turned 18, the legal age to join, will most likely get to Vietnam at 18 years 5 mos. Basic training was 2 mos and then AIT (Advanced Individual Training) was 2 more months. After 18-30 days leave prior to shipment to Vietnam your age was 18.5 on arrival in country. Then a lot of us had one year of pure hell.

I turned 18 the last day of May 1969. I enlisted June 6 1969. !3 Jun 69 I was in Ft Benning Ga. After basic I went to medical training Aug 69 to Sep 69 Ft Sam Houston, TX from there Advance medical training Oct 69. Nov 69 I was on my way to Vietnam. This timeframe was not unique. We were young in Vietnam. Brother Bullock just blended in with the other baby face young men. Our officers were much older they were about 26 ish due to them having gone to ROTC and officer training- which was about a year.

My comments may be long because as I leave this earth I still seek the solace of the young man I left in Vietnam. That young man was me. HISTORY does not treat the survivors of wars on equal footing with the dead. I contend living death is no picnic either. A lot of Black young men went to the war to maybe have the majority accept us as men. That trick did not work in America circa 1969 forward.

Again, Brother Bullock serve as an example of sacrifice. StillaPanther2

SAP2, thanks for your comment re:Vietnam. I went to Nam as a Captain about the same time as you shipped over.

I relate very much to bm going to war in order to be accepted by the society of the majority. I come from a line of military men. The belief that Blacks would be accepted as equals did not and never will, imo.

I remember my uncles who fought in WWII talking about their return home(America) from Europe at the end of the war.

They frequently talked about riding the train home and had to ride in the caboose with the cooks, waiters, bathroom cleaners while the Germans(former Nazis) got to ride in first class with the Whites.

Each generation of Blacks since WWII has come up with the hopeful ideal that if they go to fight for their country their country will honor them as equal men.

Again, EVERY GENERATION up to the Vietnam War held those hopes for bm and their families. It never came to pass, and it never will.

I remember coming 'home' and landing at Oakland terminal to be debriefed. I lived on the east coast at the time and went to SFO to catch a flight to Baltimore. While waiting for my flight, I noticed some 'flower children' harassing a Vet from Nam, who was walking through the terminal to catch a flight home.

These so called peace-loving flower children were spitting on the soldier(about 20yrs old) and calling him a "baby killer".

The young man was from Kentucky who had wanted to be somebody by going to fight for his country. That act by those mean-spirited Californians left me with two thoughts: 1. Americans are an ungrateful and uncaring lot of people. 2.) They aren't worth fighting for.

I ended my commission and never looked back at the military. Or so I thought.

Each Veteran's Day brings back the memories of over 58,000 soldiers who gave their lives for their country...NEEDLESSLY.

Finally, I have concluded that the Whites who enslaved our people centuries ago are of the same mind and heart today. There is no difference, except technology, science and standard of living are better, but 'internally' the minds hearts and souls of American people have not changed much.

That includes Blacks. We still feel less than and it shows in our behaviors and that evil degrading word we call ourselves so much that it has become acceptable to us. I am amazed that Whites don't have to put us down so much. We automatically do it to ourselves at an unconscious level.

Thank you Vietnam captain. We (young Blacks) were so proud of Black officers. My best day in Vietnam was when I had a total Black crew for my helicopter. A Black captain pilot (CPT Jackson from Philadelphia), a Black co-pilot (LT Arnold from NYC) and a Black crew-chief (SPC Amos Surles from Alabama). So to see Black officers gave us hope that you all were in the brain trust. Thank you for serving as a role model. I only gave my crew names because I am still hoping to one day see/talk to them about just being there.

We must be living on different planets in different countries where bm are in abundance when it comes to fathering their children. It's too bad bw, black boys, and black girls won't speak up about the devastation they feel because of the high percentages of fathers who desert their families.

Of course, it's easy for you to ignore it(The Elephant)/ deny it, and cry "bullshit" because you have no children.

Or maybe you do, but have deserted them?

Field, I doubt you can find another American, Black or White, who does not know the crippling family problems in our community.

Sometimes FOX NEWS are 'spot on' about us... Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Of course, it doesn't take a genius to identify what is right in front of their face.

Yet, somehow, a Negro like you cannot see this huge Elephant in the living room. There ARE others like you...they are called 'space cadets.'

The story about the underage marine is indeed tragic. He was one very brave and selfless young man.

The bigger story - and bigger tragedy - in my view is that his parents failed to protect him and provide for him. That's what parents do - no matter what it takes. If the father couldn't find work in NYC then he should have taken his family somewhere he could have supported them.

At any time, this family could have alerted the DOD of his age. But they didn't. They were content to send that young boy to the jaws of hell and cash his paychecks.

Absolutely disgusting.

The family, that is. Not the young boy, who was more a man at 14 than his dead beat father could ever hope to be.

Re: the word nigger

The first time I came to this country over 20 years ago, there was a black family headed by a lady (no dad in sight) in our neighborhood.

This lady's lifestyle (flashy expensive car, designer clothes, expensive home furnishings, eating out all the time) didn't seem to match her income.

I remember once when this topic came up at the bus stop. That's when I was told she was "Nigger Rich". I had to ask for clarification, because I truly didn't understand what was being communicated to me.

That was actually the first instance in a long line of examples how whites, no matter how they actually act around blacks, don't respect/value anything a black person has achieved and/or owns.

And I remain surprised that so many black people seem to judge their own personal success by measuring it against a yardstick defined by whites.

Too many people in this country obsess over what they don't have, to appreciate what they do have.

Compared to most of the rest of the world, anyone in America is "rich" beyond measure.

I've been called a lot of nasty things over the years, and words can only wound if you let them. However, that only applies if you have a strong sense of self.

People who need to use slurs or foul language to express themselves or to try and degrade others don't have a strong sense of self. They should be pitied.

Anon 3:12pm. I can understand how you can feel that way,but,in places where there is poverty,and lack of employment opportunities, the military is still seen as a way out by many. As the proverbial 'bootstrap to pull oneself up' and out of hardship. And it does serve this purpose for many.

For example that is the case here in Puerto Rico. Many young men enlist either full time or in the Reserves or the National Guard for this reason.

I don't know why the parents did not stop him,but I do know that sometimes you may have a very headstrong child,who simply refuses to listen.

They may also not have wanted to thwart his dream and be held responsible later on. There are many reasons, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt.

May he rest in peace. and no I had not ever heard of this case. Thank you Field for writing it. It's been on my mind all day!

let's just remain in the past...guess don't let the past rob you of your future is just the ish folk like to tell womenfolk when they are trying to heal from some man demon madness, huh? LOL.

anyhoo...

in the past is where the Blessed Blacks live with everything except when it comes to looking at the Black family. THEN we want to get all modern with it and make it the BW's sole responsibility.

we got rappers that used their highly visible platform to encourage folk to BE + Love "rough necks"...

these same ones are now SWEARING that Black men are responsible, great fathers + protectors. and there is not even the clarifying SOME word thrown in...

the same Black men that insist on the SOME word being tossed in with e'erthang else are as quiet as church mice, too. they are NOT telling nor calling out...

the HUGE blanket statement LIE- considering the broken condition of our nation.

SOME Black men are ALL of that + more. be clear. i see + give props where props are due. the vast majority...not so much though. but SSHHHH! if we ignore it + pretend folk mentioning it are NOT Black...

maybe THAT will fix the sinister, demonic, break down of the Black family + ALL families problem?

'cause folk best believe, ALL nations got now in mild doses + turned up next. the devil is Real and really does not Love ANY nation. despite all that White is Right baloney..

war= human sacrifices to defeated satan. it is no accident that the infantry is comprised of throw away/cannon fodder Blacks and Latinos. you know, those they would rather to imprison or kill than educate? them.

the most "patriotic" White folk with means KNOW to avoid war at all costs. those that don't know learn Real quick. or they got "special" status that allows them to check out as one of the 322 Bush boys did for MONTHS without consequences. when other folk pull that same biz it is called going awol + there is some hell to pay.

the best thing that Blacks and Latinos can do is stay OUT of the military. there is no first class citizenship to fight for. and typically the US goes to war with folk of color that are not doing anything that negatively impacts the lives of Blacks and Latinos.

we/U.S are usually the aggressors and out to take folks' stuff on a superior seeds of Edom tip. no one is really messing with the US. notice the terrorists are home grown? from McVeigh to Saddam CIA hand picked + trained Hussein. i pray in Yah's Name that the sheeple of the US will wake up...

or at the very least not be afraid to call evil what it is...

i Love our sons + daughters, all colors, and think standing for the troops= NOT sending them into harm's way behind foolishness. that to me is a good way to show that Love. we have NO business in afghanistan, iran, syria,libya, iraq, and for the sake of this trip down memory lane convo...vietnam. america is slated to feel the Wrath of Yah for Good reason. refusing to call it is NOT patriotic...it is treason. which is what the misleaders are up to daily. the american masses have been sold all the way out...

at the very least we could Stand and Shout out the Truth with Boldness.

or...

we could cut that home of the brave lie on out, too.

time to shame the devil and tell the Truth in this nation established by devil worshiping, slave holding, freemasons. cut that "Chr-stian" nation lie on out, too.

Blessings all!

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

He says he's asked by some single mothers why they aren't represented in advertising. I guess some single moms want people that represent them.

Since most black mothers are single mothers, the company choose well.

I'm glad we have diversiatay in America.

Not like the 1980's when Reagan was president.

As for that package advertising,well it's out of this world!

If the reason is that they wanted to advertise to single mothers also, then why not put a white single mother and a black couple? As well as what they have now. All four options?

Hard to believe that in this day and age advertising could be so insensitive!

Cant really disagree with that.

Thank feminism and liberal brain washing for it.

Its not that a "black man" got elected..its the fact that he's an evil lying progressive scumbag that bothers most people.

I like Ben Carson very much. Hes black..how does that work?

Really? When in this day and age has society and advertising been sensitive?

I've read your comments for years. Do you consider yourself sensitive?

Because he's says stoopid shit and you're stoooopid.

"Im not denying there weren't hurdles for Stilla P..im just saying that some people act like opportunity wasn't given at all."

Given? He took that shit and put up with stoooopid people like you. And from your comment it does seem as if you're denying hurdles were in front of people of color back then. Think before you post, if that's possible.
