You Betta Recognize What Dee-Dee Is Telling You


I wasn’t planning on saying anything else for a while (I’m working on my current novel), but a recent Facebook post by Mrs. Dee-Dee Lefrak (blog host of Black Women With Other Brothers) deserves special attention.

If you have any common sense, you’ll STOP pit-bulling against White men on behalf of Black males. 

I’ve talked about this before in various contexts.



If you have any common sense, you’ll recognize that when you’re being robbed in public by a BM, the random “typical” White male (and other nonblack male) bystander is MUCH more likely to come to your assistance than negro male bystanders (who are usually amused by seeing BW in distress).

In a recent Facebook post, Dee-Dee said:
‪#‎KeepSwirling‬ As I was saying about "The Man" regulating thugs morons and BP do not. BW are the brainwashed attack dogs for our race hoping for approval that will never come and how many BM do you think would come to the rescue of this Sista? Look at the video and make up your own mind. Yeh "The Man" helped her we know kneegrows would not have done so UNLESS they were her blood relatives/husband.
She’s right.


Note that these were Southern WM “Billy Bobs” that risked their own safety to help that BW in distress.

Over the years, I’ve witnessed a couple of similar situations in Chicago in which ethnic WM “Vinnie Barbarinos” and “Timmy O’Malleys” risked their own safety to help a BW who had her purse or necklace snatched by a negro male. While negro males stood around, watched and giggled at seeing a BW in distress. 

Ladies, wake up, recognize reality, and act accordingly.

African Americans Who Support NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton” = “Good Germans” Who Ignored Nazi Atrocities

I’ve been watching the various online conversations in BW-centric spaces about the number of African-Americans, particularly African-American Black women (AABW), who ran out to support woman-beating, colorist NWA’s movie “Straight Outta Compton.” I’ve watched sane, sensible, and self-respecting AABW express shock and dismay at this depraved* behavior by the legions of braind-dead AABW. 

[*For an AABW to support this movie—and thereby subsidize a group of negro males who have spent the last 25 years degrading BW and marketing that hatred of BW to the entire planet—IS an act of depravity.]

Here’s what sane, sensible, self-respecting AABW need to understand about the Black female mammies who support this flick: 

These women are the ethical equivalent of the good German civilians who chose to ignore and turn a blind eye to Nazi atrocities. It's the same decision to knowingly support an evil ideology and evil individuals that have caused death and destruction to large numbers of people.

But first, you need to get clear about the nature of hip-hop/(c)rap “music.” After roughly 30 years of lies, let’s start telling the plain truth about hip-hop/(c)rap “music.”

Hip-hop/(c)rap “Music” Is Inferior Music That Encouraged AAs To Abandon Our Traditional Talents

I’ve talked about this before during the comments to a blog post.

Faith,


No, you're not over-analyzing this. I'm annoyed by this element of the packaging of these musicians.

However...let's consider what I believe are some of the harsh realities involved in this:

(1) If these women didn't look like fashion models, many prospective audience members would say that the only reason why they took the time to become REAL musicians is because they're too unattractive to be pop divas.

This is an extremely ignorant but common reaction. The same way people presume that, in terms of women, smart = unattractive. In the music context, people assume that only unattractive women choose NOT to pursue the "no-talent required" path.

(2) The audience's tastes have become thoroughly corrupted after several decades of no-talent trash being lifted up. We've had about 25 years of an almost entire roster of "music artists" that can't play instruments, read music, or sing. This lack of talent has become normal to us. Because our tastes are corrupted, we tend to shun music products that require skill and discipline on the performers' part.

Since most audience members have developed unnatural reactions to music that requires the performers to have skill and discipline, such music has to be heavily marketed to them.Quality by itself is NOT sufficient to capture the attention of most modern audience members. In fact, modern AAs actively shun quality.

A friend told me a horror story of watching some Negro music awards show where audience members (including some Negro/colored celebrities) looked bored while Gladys Knight was singing; and only perked up when some no-talent, colored girl, heavily-produced, video diva (I can't remember which one) came on stage to "perform."

Sex sells. Sex sells the new classical videos long enough for the audience to hear the music along the way. It's like the tag line to the old Bill Cosby cartoon: "If you're not careful, you might learn something."

Without using sex to capture the audience's attention, many audience members will click off once they figure out that: (a) the song is instrumental; (b) has violin-, viola-, and cello-playing in it; and (c) probably lacks Beyonce-type dance steps.

Things have reached a point that anything of quality has to be heavily marketed and "slipped in." And so, we have the new classical musicians who can "pass" as fashion models.

After modern audience members have become more accustomed to hearing quality music products, then it will be possible to remove some of these artifical crutches used to present the music to them. Crutches such as only selecting female musicians who can "pass" as fashion models.

Peace, blessings and solidarity.

PioneerValleyWoman,


You said, "In my cynicism, I think modern day audiences have become so superficial that if the members of Bond chose the "talent over looks" approach, they would not even be capable of recognizing that the members of Bond are true musicians of talent."

RESPONSE: Exactly. This is absolutely insane. I can't get over the fact that most modern Negro "music artists" CANNOT play instruments, read music, or sing! Isn't having at least ONE of these skills a basic requirement before you can call yourself a musician?

Now that I think about it, I see where this sort of crazy thinking about music came from: It originated from AAs making excuses for defending/supporting no-talent rappers. "Oh, they're too poor to take music lessons...they're too poor to buy instruments...That's why they 'had to' express their 'creativity' in other ways...blah, blah, blah..." So here's the progression:

(1) At the beginning of hip-hop, AAs had the sense to realize that what these rappers were doing was INFERIOR, so we made the "they're too poor to do any better" excuses on their behalf.

(2) As time went on, no-talent products such as hip-hop (screaming and cursing over recycled beats from other people's work) became normalized as actual "music" to us.

(3) AAs started defending and justifying the hip-hop trash as if hip-hop is synonymous with "Blackness." I watched over the years as AAs who knew better were intimidated into silence (myself included) about just how INFERIOR this rap crap is. At this point, it's practically forbidden to point out the lack of actual talent or skill involved in creating rap trash.

(4) As more time went on, this garbage is all that most of us know.

We need to cleanse ourselves of this no-talent trash. Our defense of no-talent trash is the underlying reason why AA music has stagnated for the past 25 years. AAs used to come up with an entire NEW style of music every decade or so. Not any more. Not since the hip-hop trash took over. We went from being a people who could sing a cappella on street corners to no-singing, no-instrument-playing bums who steal 25-year old beats and melodies. Hmmph.

PioneerValleyWoman,


You said, "When I was coming up, the rap thing was just getting going, and I was such an iconoclast, nerdy kid, that I refused to be part of the pop culture my peers were into. I was listening to my parents' music and the oldies' stations."-------------------------------------------

RESPONSE: I was a teenager at the start of the rap crap. The thing is that a LOT of us HATED that mess from the very beginning. I remember my boyfriend and his male friends grumbling "This stuff they're chanting about is really degrading...and people are shaking their rumps to this?" My female friends and I were also grumbling about that mess at the beginning.

We all allowed ourselves to be silenced by accusations that we were just being "bourgie" (which, of course, is a bad thing---the very life circumstances that our grandparents prayed we would enjoy is a bad thing) when we expressed our dislike of that rap mess.

You're correct that a number of Black academics have a lot to answer for in defending this trash. Some of them have also sabotaged the academic careers of Black college students by pretending that this mess is worthy of serious, college level study. NOT!

NOBODY respects courses in Rap Video Vixen 203 or Hip-Hop Violence 101. And they shouldn't respect that, because it's an utter waste of time. It's also a diversion from studying things that are of actual value. Things like, I don't know...maybe learning how to read music and play an instrument.

Peace, blessings and solidarity.
I’m older than most of you in the reading audience. Most of y’all weren’t on the scene when hip-hop/(c)rap emerged. I was. I was there. I was a teenager in the 1980s when hip-hop/(c)rap started. The revisionist history spread by modern-day hip-hop/(c)rap fans who don’t know any better won’t tell you the truth. The revisionist liars want to pretend that most AA teens at that time liked that garbage from the very beginning. That’s NOT true. That’s not how things went down. 

Here’s what really happened:

Many of the other AA teens I knew (and all of my friends) hated that garbage when it started. As in hated it with a passion. Including the so-called “positive” hip-hop/(c)rap which has the same inherent flaws as the overtly violent gangster (c)rap:


All of that garbage steers AAs away from cultivating our traditional music talents and steers AAs toward lifting up mediocrity. As 1980s teenagers, we noticed the utter lack of talent involved in that mess. How do you call yourself a music performer when you can’t sing, can’t play an instrument and can’t read music?

In Chicago during that era, AA teens were listening to house music. But at age 15, 16, and 17 we allowed ourselves to be bullied into silence by the AA project kids and gang-influenced kids who liked that no-talent (c)rap mess. We didn’t want to be called “bougie.”

When we got to college, we allowed ourselves to be bullied into silence about the inferior nature of hip-hop/(c)rap by the misguided Black activists who had the knee-jerk reaction of supporting anything the Black underclass liked—even when it was something self-degrading and harmful, like most hip-hop/(c)rap.

A lot of young AAs from that era of the 1980s and 1990s knew better. Don’t let modern-day hip-hop/(c)rap fans trick you into believing that the only Black people “back in the day” who didn’t like hip-hop/(c)rap were old folks such as C. Delores Tucker. A lot of us who were young-uns back then knew better, but we let ourselves be bullied into silence by social pressure and fear of being called “bougie,” oreo, etc.

And so, the vast majority of AAs who knew better back then were cowards who allowed C. Delores Tucker to stand alone to face the slander and attacks from the (c)rappers and their supporters.

And so, the vast majority of AAs who respected our race, our ethnic group and ourselves enough to take exception to the violent anti-Black self-hatred being promoted by hip-hop/(c)rap were afraid of being perceived as oreos, Toms and traitors to our people. Meanwhile, an individual like Tupac could be considered “down with the cause”—even though he helped normalize mass dysfunction among AAs with his (c)rap and was screwing Madonna.

And now we have 2.5 generations of AAs who have NO ethical or moral compass whatsoever. We have masses of AAs who will knowingly support evil speech, evil actions and evil individuals who have caused great harm to AAs such as NWA and the pedophile R. Kelly.

I’ve had arguments with AABW child welfare workers who still support pedophile R. Kelly’s products. Including self-identified Christian AABW child welfare personnel. This sort of disconnect exists because the masses of modern-day AAs have no ethical compass whatsoever when it comes to holding BM accountable for anything. They have no ethical compass because they’ve spent their entire lives listening to anti-Black, anti-self-respect hate speech ideology that we refer to as hip-hop and rap. Which brings me to my next point.

Most Hip-hop/(c)rap “Music” Is Anti-Black Hate Speech Ideology

Let’s be clear: Most hip-hop/(c)rap “music” IS the equivalent of Radio Rwanda. Most hip-hop/(c)rap “music” is HATE SPEECH IDEOLOGY. Which is why hip-hop/(c)rap fans have to dig deep to come up with a few names of some so-called “positive” hip-hop/rap performersmost of whom are obscure and not at all representative of what that particular genre is about. 

As an aside, nobody is fooled by folks digging up a few so-called “positive” performers from 30 years ago. Because quite frankly, the so-called “positive” hip-hop/rap performers from 30 years ago weren't all that “positive” or politically aware. Not when you compare them to earlier performers such as Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder. Or poet and proto-rapper Gil Scott-Heron. According to the Wikipedia entry:
Regarding hip hop music in the 1990s, he said in an interview:
They need to study music. I played in several bands before I began my career as a poet. There’s a big difference between putting words over some music, and blending those same words into the music. There’s not a lot of humor. They use a lot of slang and colloquialisms, and you don’t really see inside the person. Instead, you just get a lot of posturing.
Just sayin.

What sane, sensible and self-respecting AABW need to understand is that hip-hop/(c)rap isn’t just entertainment for the past 2.5 generations of AAs. It’s an evil ideology that the past couple of generations of AAs have been indoctrinated into—it’s the moral and practical equivalent of Hitler Youth. When it comes to atrocities committed and marketed by AABM, most modern day AAs are “Good Germans.”

When you talk to AA males and AA mammy mules who support R. Kelly, NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton,” etc. you’re talking to AAs who’ve grown up in the ethical equivalent of Hitler Youth. You can’t reason with Negro Slave Hitler Youth! Such folks are beyond reason.

When you try to reason with Negro Slave Hitler Youth about their active support of evil, they’ll tell you that woman-beating, colorism and lethal gangbanger violence existed before NWA and other gangster (c)rappers. Yeah, the same way genocide existed and had been carried out in various countries prior to Nazi Germany.

But here’s the difference these Negro Slave Hitler Youth graduates don’t understand: Genocide existed prior to Nazi Germany; but the Nazis mechanized and industrialized genocide.

Similarly, woman-beating, colorism and lethal gangbanger violence existed prior to NWA; but NWA and other gangster (c)rappers mass-marketed these evils to the AA collective and normalized these evils among the AA collective.

History shows that it takes extreme measures to cleanse indoctrinated people’s minds of that type of filth. Once that kind of filth is allowed to take root among a people, you have to actively stamp it out to get the people back to some level of sanity. [The Union’s failure to actively stamp out deranged racist Southern ideology after the U.S. Civil War was a major strategic mistake. Which is why there are still problems with that region of the U.S. today.]

You have to do things like physically destroying every symbol that supports a deranged ideology. Which is what American troops did in occupied Germany after WWII.  Like in the video below.


You also have to make examples of folks who collaborated with evil in order to get the masses back to some level of sanity. Negro Slave Hitler Youth act as if sane and sensible AAs verbally questioning their choice to financially support evil is some sort of an attack. I even saw one Hitler Youth Negro Mammy accuse those AAs who have enough self-respect to boycott evil such as NWA of “targeting” the mammies who ran out to support that movie.

These AA Slave Collaborators With Anti-Black Evil have no idea what “targeting” collaborators looks like in the real world. Here are some historical examples of how other folks dealt with the collaborators from among their nations:



Thankfully, in the modern day AA context, all of this isn’t really necessary in order to cleanse the AA collective of AA Slave Collaborators With Anti-Black Evil. Because in one way or another, most AA collaborators depend on the rest of us to feed them. The masses of everyday AA Slave Collaborators With Anti-Black Evil are not thriving. Because the AA collective is not thriving (in large part due to the self-destructive, dysfunctional values and behaviors that 25+ years of hip-hop/(c)rap culture has normalized among AAs).

After citing the article Where did 'Straight Outta Compton' make the mostmoney? Not where you'd think, Breukelen Bleu in a recent Facebook post made some observations about the general state of BW in Atlanta (a theater in Atlanta had the top ticket sales during the opening weekend of that movie):
The area that Straight Out of Compton made THE MOST MONEY in, was NOT Compton itself. It wasn't even in LA, Cali, or the west coast for that matter.
.
It was Atlanta, Georgia.
.
The ATL.
.
.....................................
.
An area that has the 4th largest black population in the country; where single black WOMEN outnumber single black men by 80,000; where 60% of the black men could contract HIV by the age of 30; where a large portion of the black male population is closeted gay men living deceitful heterosexual lives; where only 29% of the black female population is currently married; where the black unemployment rate is almost 15%- almost 3 times the national average; where the crime rates are 232% higher than the national average; where reported rapes are 4x the national average; where a person has a 1 in 14 chance of becoming a victim of a crime; in a state where gun deaths are up 8%; where 56% of domestic violence deaths are caused by guns; where 42% of domestic violence deaths had children present during the killing; where 3000 domestic violence survivors are turned away from shelters per year; where the gap between the richest and the poorest is the highest in the country and the richest are worth 20 TIMES the poorest; where black women are contracting HIV rates at 5x the rates originally estimated for black women by the CDC; where the OOW rates top 74%..
.
.......................................
.
THIS ^^^city, where all of the dysfunction, mayhem, poverty, violence, domestic abuse, family instability, rape and murder depicted in songs like "Bitches Aint Shit But Hos' & Tricks' and "One Less Bitch" plays out in REAL LIFE, affecting black women in DISPROPORTIONATE NUMBERS. is the same city who topped the list of ticket sales which demographics were....
.
.................................................................................................................
"About 51% of ticket buyers were younger than 30, and 46% were black. More surprising: About 52% of the audience was female."
................................................................................................................
.
52 PERCENT.
.
That means that there were LOTS of black women who spent their MONEY in support of a group who contributed to the belief that black women are little more than beasts and animals with graphs and charts having been created, to support the notion.
.
Now, think again about them Jewish Business men and then tell me again how this shit dont matter and how there isnt something extremely disturbing about the average black womans response to NWA and what they respresent. Fuck the emotionality. Fuck the politics and respectability concerns. Fuck the faux outrage and selective morality.
.
Just look at the NUMBERS.
.
If BW can look at those numbers I presented above, and reconcile them with that 56.1 MILLION dollar earnings for Straight Out of Compton this weekend and NOT see something wrong -
Well, then black women DESERVE the rapes, murder, oppression, mistreatment, degradation, poverty and shame we endure. Cuz any group too stupid to recognize the connection between those all of those numbers is too STUPID to expect be treated any other way.
.
We are supposedly one of the most educated demographics in the country. But we sure dont let them book smarts translate into common sense. Some of the women I have seen support this mess have surprised me - and saddened me. Because if even THOSE sistas caint see whats right in front of us, then what that says about the rest of black womanhood is scary.
You aint gotta be a feminist, anti-rap activist, BWE follower or PhD to add.
.
All you need is a decent calculator and some perspective.
For those of us who are sane, sensible, self-respecting AABW, the BW Collaborators With Anti-Black Evil who ran out to support this movie are not us; and we are not them. 

The bulk of these women are not thriving, and we don't owe them anything at all. 

These women deserve to continue twisting in the wind. As I've said before, the answer is very simple:

When you really want something to stop, you have to STOP feeding anybody and everybody who keeps it going.

Stop feeding the Black men who hate Black women. Stop feeding the Black women who persist in supporting these Black men.

#BlackLivesMatter = NWA “Straight Outta Compton” & Self-Respecting African-American Black Women Need To Boycott BOTH Of Them


Until now, I've remained publicly silent about my suspicions and concerns regarding the #BlackLivesMatter movement, but looking at the photo above was the last straw for me. The Black female fool who was screaming at a frail looking and elderly progressive politician named Bernie Sanders probably has no clue just how horrible this photo looks.

As I said in this post:

IN A PATRIARCHAL WORLD, DEFEMINIZATION HAS SEVERE CONSEQUENCES FOR WOMEN

Halima, blog host of Black Women’s Interracial Relationship Circle, is holding an extremely important discussion about how many Black women have been programmed to cooperate with being defeminized. On a patriarchal planet, defeminization has severe consequences for women. As Halima points out, defeminization by becoming un-women means that a woman won’t receive what she identified as the four main manifestations of male protection: courtesy, concern, consideration, and concessions.
As I said in another post:
It’s defeminizing for a woman to brawl publicly with men. When an African-American woman does this it reinforces the negative, repellent image of African-American women as belligerent she-males and un-women. She’s also validating broken and damaged Black men’s slander of African-American women as “Sapphires.” All in all, cyber-brawling is an extremely bad look for Black women. [ . . . ]

OTHER TYPES OF WOMEN KNOW BETTER THAN TO LOWER THEIR IMAGE BY BRAWLING IN PUBLIC. THEY FIGHT INDIRECTLY BY HAVING MEN FIGHT OTHER MALES ON THEIR BEHALF.

Other types of women know better than to be seen doing anything like that in public. They know better than to be seen publicly fighting with males. Other women know that it’s much better to have a man fight other males on their behalf. This way they preserve their image as feminine, desirable women. As opposed to making themselves look like she-males. 

   

When you look at the HEAVY damage they're doing to African-American Black women's image, #BlackLivesMatter = NWA

Regardless of whatever the Black women involved in the #BlackLivesMatter movement THINK they're accomplishing, they are really acting as a Trojan horse that's damaging African-American Black women's interests.

To borrow a concept from systems theory, The Purpose of a System Is What It Does (POSIWID).
POSIWID (the purpose of the system is what it does) is a way of thinking about complex systems, giving us a different perspective on a range of social and political issues. When we understand the complex loops that maintain the status quo, we are better equipped to make positive changes in organizations and society.
The origins of POSIWID thinking
The term POSIWID was coined by Stafford Beer. It was picked up and developed further in a trio of books written in the 1980s by engineer Bill Livingston.
Approach
The POSIWID principle applies a kind of backwards logic to systems thinking – from effects to causes.
If a complex system produces a given outcome, or if a given outcome emerges from a complex system, then we may assume some purpose linked to this outcome. This is a useful guide for investigation and interpretation. Ignore the official purpose of the system, ignore what the designers and custodians of a system say, and concentrate on its actual behaviour.
(emphasis added in bold)

Violent Black male criminals and predators (such as the BW-hating and woman-beating creatures in NWA like Dr. Dre) —
— and their unwitting enablers such as the misguided foreign-origin BW who are several of the founders and primary participants in the #BlackLivesMatter movement —
don’t have to be involved in a conscious, deliberate conspiracy in order to separately act in ways that create ONE overall result: the destruction of African-American Black women’s image. The Purpose of a System Is What It Does (POSIWID).

The Purpose of a System Is What It Does (POSIWID). And what these #BlackLivesMatter women activists are DOING—regardless of whatever it is they think they’re accomplishing—is destroying African-American Black women’s image. 
Reasons why self-actualizing African-American Black women should be suspicious of #BlackLivesMatter:
(1) Heavy Command And Control of #BlackLivesMatter By Foreign-Origin Blacks. Cofounder Opal Tometi is the child of Nigerian immigrants. Tia Osu, who disrupted the Netroots Nation Presidential Town Hall, is half-Nigerian. This is significant to me because I don't trust outsiders to protect African-American interests. I don't trust them to do it because the historical pattern is that outsiders don't protect African-American interests. I talked about this in terms of our Black foreign "cousins" at length in the post, Charity Should Begin at Home, Part 1: "Study:Universities prefer foreign black students"
The core problem is our general refusal to properly understand our unique history, our unique struggle, and our unique situation within this country. Many African-Americans refuse to understand that other so-called people of color (including many of our foreign Black cousins) are actually RIVALS for many of the resources and opportunities that our people's struggle created. We want to believe that we are in "coalitions" with other people.

Umm. . . No. What has happened is that other ethnic groups have harnessed our energy and resources in support of their agendas. When African-Americans participate in coalitions, we allow others to capitalize off of our unique history and the unique debt that is owed to us. Resources that should go to us as restitution for the specific harms that have been done to us in this country are siphoned off by other groups. The African-American Civil Rights Movement created resources that should have been used as restitution for the centuries of slavery, followed by the century of official Jim Crow segregation that our people have suffered right here. Instead, these resources have been converted into vague "diversity" programs that benefit everybody else.

There's a story entitled, "Study: Universities prefer foreign black students" from the March 7, 2007 issue of The Daily Princetonian. Here's the link:www.dailyprincetonian.com/archives/2007/03/07/news/17622.shtml

The story describes the current situation. Here's the money quote:

"Blacks at Ivy League schools are over three times more likely to be immigrants than blacks in America's general population, a study published in February's American Journal of Education and coauthored by Princeton researchers suggests. Within the United States, first and second-generation black immigrants make up 13 percent of the total black population. In contrast, data from the National Longitudinal Study of Freshmen found that international black students---either first or second-generation---made up 23 percent of blacks attending public universities and 41 percent of those attending Ivy League schools." (emphasis added)

This is just the beginning stage of this trend line. I could compare it to the point in the 1960s when the Moynihan Report came out warning about the rise of single-parent Black families. We ignore this situation at our own peril. Many of us depend on set-aside programs to either pay for, or to get into, much of higher education. If these resources created by our civil rights martyrs continue to be systematically diverted to other people, then we're in a lot of trouble as a group. Any future depends upon access to higher education.

What will we do when the percentage of immigrant-origin Blacks among Black college students reaches 51%? Or 75%? Or 90%?

It looks like we'll do something similar to what we do in terms of Latino immigration. We stand and watch while legal and illegal Latino immigrants work at construction jobs in Black residential areas. Soon, we'll be watching our foreign Black cousins and their children go off to college while we remain behind in our slums.

Here's another money quote from the story,"What to do with the conclusions of the study depends on admission officers' definition of affirmative action, Massey said. 'If the purpose of affirmative action is to redress past wrongs and redress former slaves and people victimized by a century of Jim Crow, then you want to favor native blacks perhaps,' he said. 'If the purpose is to reflect the diversity of American society, then you want to favor immigrant blacks.'"

This ties into why I have extremely ambivalent feelings about Black immigrants who are pushy about claiming the label "African-American" for themselves. Other people re-defining our category to suit their needs helps to obscure situations like the one described in the article. After all, how does one measure or track this situation if immigrant-origin Blacks are claiming to be "African-Americans"? I also start to wonder if some of them are so quick to claim this label when there's nothing to be gained from calling oneself "African-American." Do they call themselves "African-American" just to reap the benefits of our struggle? Or do they do this out of a real sense of solidarity with us?

I've met a number of Black immigrants who stand in sincere solidarity with us. I've met a number who do not. I've also run across those who only claim any connection to us when there is something to be gained.

The story ends with a quote from an African student stating that he doesn't feel that Africans are overrepresented at Princeton. He goes on to add that, in economic terms, African children are disadvantaged compared to African-American children. I see nothing wrong with him saying this. He's just looking our for his best interests. I would be saying similar things if I was of immigrant origin.

When are we going to start looking out for our best interests? When are we going to use whatever influence we have with any of these college admissions officers to ensure that African-Americans get at least a proportionate slice of the resources that our martyrs created? Let me be clear: I'm not interested in blocking anybody else's advancement. I just want to make sure that my own group gets our slice. I've got some phone calls to make. I hope you make some calls too.
Now, back to Opal Tometi and Tia Osu: Both of them are members of the Black Alliance For Just Immigration. In fact, Ms. Tometi is the Executive Director of BAJI. Essentially, these women and their organization want to bring more immigrants into the U.S.
Bringing more immigrants (including more Black immigrants) into the U.S. does NOT help African-Americans' interests. In fact, it HARMS the interests of African-Americans. Dr. Claud Anderson of the Harvest Institute has warned African-Americans about this for years. Please read the Harvest Institute Alert article from 2006, How Immigration Harms Native Blacks and Advantages Immigrants.
(2) There are reasons to suspect that #BlackLivesMatter activists are cat's paws for Hillary Clinton and/or the Democratic party establishment.
From what I can tell, I notice that so far the only gatherings these #BlackLivesMatter women activists seem to be disrupting are Bernie Sanders' appearances. Cui bono? Who benefits from that? Who benefits the most from that? 
You can weigh the points raised by the following articles and come to your own conclusions (I don't buy into everything said in the following articles, but they raise interesting points to consider):
When you really want something to stop, you have to STOP feeding anybody and everybody who keeps it going.

As I said in an another post,

YOU DON’T NEED A RESISTANCE MOVEMENT AGAINST PEOPLE WHO DEPEND ON YOU TO FEED THEM. IF YOU’RE FEEDING SOMEBODY AND YOU DON’T LIKE WHAT THEY’RE DOING—STOP FEEDING THEM!

Most of the African-American males who demean and degrade Black women in public are being fed directly or indirectly . . . by Black women. African-American women buy their “music,” see their films, read their books, follow their blogs, agitate in support of them getting tenure, and so on. African-American women control most of the money within the African-American collective. We’re the ones who are making most of the consumer purchases that prop up the African-American males who hate us. The short-term answer is simple:
Stop feeding the Black men who hate Black women. Stop feeding the Black women who persist in supporting these Black men.
Today I'll add another point:

STOP feeding and supporting the Black women activists in #BlackLivesMatter who persist in destroying African-American Black women's image.

Karmic Overdraft Fees WILL Apply

Breukelen Bleu has published a Facebook post that could literally mean the difference between life and death for you and any African-American Black woman and girl you care about. I strongly urge you to read it NOW, while she still has it publicly visible.

I'm republishing part of it because what she's saying is vital. And it's exactly the sort of thing that elicits frenzied and sustained attacks from African-American BW (AABW) who are still either fully or partially indoctrinated in Sista Soldiering and Mammy Muling. I'm discussing Ms. Bleu's post to add my voice and my support to her message in that post.

Karmic Overdraft Fees WILL Be Applied

In part, Breukelen Bleu said:
I want to point out the reason why in my past posts, I have warned BW about standing in the position of 'liberator' and placing the bullseye on themselves with those "Iam(fill in the blank with name of victim) hashtag campaigns, allowing themselves to become The Face of The Struggle and The Face of The Resulting Pain. What we think is showing our solidarity with the person who was mistreated, is really marking ourselves as the next TARGET for the same thing to happen to us. By donning hoodies and skittles, putting our children in 'Dont Shoot' imagery, manning the front lines taking on armed, militarized MEN, engaging in small and large acts of defiance, and offering both actual and symbolic tokens of good will to 'the struggle', what we believe is helping those we feel need 'justice' is having a side affect that has very DANGEROUS and DEADLY consequences. You do NOT put yourself in the image of The Sacrifice - EVER. Its like ASKING the Universe to tag dat ass for future problems. (Its also the reason why wearing the sign of The Sacrifice - the Christian Cross is a NO-NO - but thats a discussion for another day, also.)
.
It has not been lost on some, that there have been many incidences of BW who have been harmed, killed or compromised - women who have been OUTWARDLY defiant of the system and who have OPENLY voiced opposition to the 'inequities' that black men....I mean, black 'people' experience.
.
From losing eyes during protests...
.
To being gunned down after anti-violence events BW have coordinated...
.
To being shot at or after anti-gun rallies....
.
Being shot while protesting police brutality...
.
Being a state representative and being gassed at a rally...
To being stricken with a life threatening illness (with little community support until SOMEBODY decided to share her story...cough, cough (I was one of them)....)
To ending up dead after a 'routine' traffic stop...
.....BW are experiencing many repercussions from our participation in the 'struggle'. Now, one might say that all of these examples are simply 'coincidences' - that they are simply the 'follies' of life that could have happened even if they were NOT involved in the fight for black men - I mean, black "people'.
But those of us who know better scoff as such deflections. This is NOT 'coincidental'. Its is the consequences of spiritual Law. . . [ ]
.
Altho I wasnt quite sure what was exactly was going on, my 'spidey sense' started tingling about the number of black women who have either been 'anti violence' activist, 'anti police brutality' activists, 'save the negros' activists, politicians, etc, who have ended up harmed, maimed or DEAD while actively engaging in those activities;
Many more than I am seeing reported as similar incidents about black men.
There is something about all of it that read very...something...to me. I noticed that those BW who very OUTWARDLY come against this system end up taken out - but any number of means. Some are killed by other blacks. Some by police. Some fall ill. But they be end up GOT in the end.
This latest case really sealed it for me. The irony of THIS woman, who was so OPENLY defiant against police brutality to end up dead HERSELF...in a state far from home... by cops who couldnt POSSIBLY have known who she was... is simply too much to ignore.
.
And when I mentioned it amongst Wise Women, the answer was provided in one simple statement.
.
"If you stand in the sacrifice seat for someone that wont do it for you....this is what you get."
.
In essence, The Law of One Sided Loyalty.
.
When you operate from a desire to help those who WON'T and HAVENT helped you, you are placing yourself in the DEFICIT. And just like any bank account, when overdrawn, OVERDRAFT FEES APPLY.
.
These unfortunate occurrences that are happening to BW are OVERDRAFT FEES. Its what happens when you over extend yourself in the name of those who wouldnt and dont RECIPROCATE. Its what it looks like to have your One Sided Loyalty Karma come back and kick yo ass. You would think said "karma' would come for those who benefit from that onesidedness wouldnt you? But thats not quite how it works. The "karma' comes for those who allow themselves to be in the DEFICIT - not those who take advantage of the arrangement. So in essence, those who allow themselves, their image, their energy, their money, their love and their lives to be PIMPED, are the ones who get GOT. THEY agree to the terms by not demanding any payment for their devotion. And so the fees come out of THEIR side of the deal.
Not the ones who are getting over.
Think about the Pimp/Prostitute dynamic. Who is it that usually gets in trouble? The Pimp? The John?
Or the Prostitute?
.
Moral considerations dont apply here. It has nothing to do with 'victim blaming' or attempting to 'silence the voices of BW'. Its about ENERGY and how it works; WITHOUT moral compunctions and without choosing sides based on percieved right or wrong. When you place yourself, your image and your bloodline in The Sacrifice Seat, particularly for those who will NOT RETURN THE FAVOR, you are calling down upon yourself a DEBT - a debt that is oftimes, paid in blood;
Your blood or that of your children.
.
We must understand that the Universe doesnt take sides. It simply balances the ledger. Think about how NUTS BW look, ALLLL riled up and frothing at the mouth over 'racism' and 'whitey', when we barely stop to blink at all the terrors that take place in blackistan!

There's a certain amount of synchronicity in the discussion Ms. Bleu is hosting about this. Friends and I (including one friend who is a sho'nuff "church lady" who attends a "sanctified, holy roller"-type church) have been discussing the exact same topic ever since the Charleston Church Massacre. I suspect that other AABW have been discussing the karmic angles to this. Much like Breukelen Bleu, my "spidey sense" has also been tingling for a while about all these events. I'm sure that other AABW have been having similar reactions as these events accumulate.

When You Engage In Inappropriate, Preemptive, Unrequested, Blanket Forgiveness, You've Agreed To Pay The Wrongdoer's Earthly Karmic Energy Bill

I'm not any sort of expert in spiritual matters. I'm a layperson when it comes to such matters. But I have started to notice the patterns involved in such matters. The same way I don't have to be a physicist or have a deep understanding of gravity in order to know that it's unwise to step off the top of a building.

Not every AABW church lady is a gullible fool. [Even though far too many of them have worked their fingers to the bone to create that public image for themselves as a group.] Similar to how I felt, my church lady friend was absolutely outraged by the spectacle of the Charleston Church Massacre victims' [AA slave] relatives announcing that they forgive the killer. Her first reaction was, "Did he ASK for forgiveness??!!??"

I've been watching AABW give out these types of blanket, unsolicited Forgiveness Free Passes to certain categories of wrongdoers. I've also been watching these AABW pay the price for doing that. The Charleston Church Massacre killer will get what's coming to him in the afterlife. However, the afterlife doesn't address the extreme amount of negative energy he created here on Earth by snuffing out that many lives without just cause.

My Christian friend and I have been talking about how the type and amount of negative energy created by such an act doesn't just dissipate. It's got to go somewhere. By all standards of justice, that negative energy created by those murders is supposed to boomerang "Return To Sender"-style back on the killer.

But, by giving an Unrequested Inappropriate Preemptive Forgiveness Free Pass to the killer—who murdered their own flesh and blood—these slaves have interposed themselves between the killer and the negative karmic energy boomerang that was en route to hit him upside his head. In short, these slave relatives have offered to pick up the Earthly karmic energy "tab" for this killer. As it always does, time will tell how their choice to do that works out for those massacre victims' relatives.

Even Some Of The Slave Church Preacher-Hustlers Can Feel The Energy Shifting

Even a stopped clock is factually correct twice a day. I ran across this clip at a blog that was complaining about this individual (who appears to preside over a church full of women—like most of the preachers in the AA slave church). Whatever else might be wrong with this individual, he slipped up and told a large chunk of truth at the 3:47 point in the video when he said:
"Listen to me, preacher. You can't hide behind your pulpit no more. Because they're coming in to shoot you. You can't hide behind the cloth. They don't care nothing about that no more."

Of course, he's a fool (like so many other AA religious misleaders). For more about this fool and others of his ilk, see THIS thread at Lipstick Alley.

Once they see they're in mortal danger, people who value themselves have armed security at their houses of worship. Oh, like White Christians and Jews. But not AA slaves. And this gets back to Breukelen Bleu's point in another part of her post about the karmic price tag that AABW pay for ignoring, excusing and sweeping under the rug the ever-increasing number of BM-committed atrocities. While these same AABW hypocritically shriek and howl about the trespasses that WM commit against BM.

To paraphrase the preacher-hustler above, "they haven't cared nothing about" shooting in [what purports to be] a house of God since at least five years ago. I have a long memory for things that trouble my spirit. And my "spidey sense" has been tingling on and off about the physical danger involved in attending the AA slave church since some Blackistani gang members shot two Black teenagers during a service at a slave church in 2010.

It wasn't just the shooting itself inside a church that troubled my spirit, it was the utterly inappropriate response by the AA Black church members. I commented on that during a blog discussion around the time of that shooting:
To clarify my earlier comments:
Here’s the link a friend sent me to the news story I mentioned earlier.http://www.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/02/15/california.church.shooting/?hpt=Sbin
The story itself isn’t all that important. As I and other BWE bloggers have warned, Rwanda-type conditions are emerging right now in many Black residential areas. The number and pace of these sorts of news stories coming out of Black residential areas will only increase.
What IS significant is the attitude expressed by the quotes attributed to the BM deacon and another BM church member. Here’s the quote:
“I’m sure there’s some fear and shock, but we’re not running,” said Ezekiel Wallace, the church deacon. “We are going to be doing what we always do: Pray and have church.”
“We’re not scared, but we’re sort of mystified because this is God’s church,” said Earl Young, a church member since 1967. “We refuse to let the devil make us run and hide because that’s probably what they want us to do.”
Note that there’s NO mention of a special men’s meeting to discuss new security measures in the aftermath of this shooting. By their statements, they’re putting everyone on notice that the BW and girls in their church are . . . on their own . . . in terms of their physical safety. Is this the attitude of normal M-E-N? No, it’s not. Normal men function as protectors and providers for the women and children who are in their orbit.
If he can’t physically protect the women and children in his orbit himself (due to age or so on), a normal man will make arrangements for other men to provide physical security. A normal man would not take the blase attitude of “Oh well, let’s pray and do nothing else . . .”
I’m highlighting this because this BM deacon is probably somebody that most AAs would (mistakenly) assume is a “good” man. But he’s NOT a “good” man and he’s NOT a quality man—because he’s not protective of the women and children in his circle of responsibility. This deacon is of NO value to the women and children of that church. And I suspect that he’s of NO value to any of the women and children around him anywhere else.
The mark of a real man is that he REGULATES what goes on in the environment around “his” women and children. He polices other men. Other men can’t just do anything, and do it any kind of way, around “his” women and children. They can’t curse freely around “his” women and children. They can’t sexually harass “his” women and children. A real man certainly WON’T leave the door wide open for other males to FREELY engage in gunplay and shootouts in any setting that “his” women and children frequent—such as the church they attend.
This particular individual isn’t only a member of that church, he’s a deacon. If he was a real man, then he would take on some of the responsibility for protecting the women and children in that church. Either himself, or by making other arrangements such as hiring a security guard.
This episode is a perfect example of why I’m saying that the odds of having a healthy and wholesome marriage with an AA man are NOT promising. And not worth a marriage-minded woman investing her time in dating most of them. The bulk of AA males either don’t know how to, or don’t want to, function as protectors and providers for their OWN children.. The proof of this is seen every single day in Black residential communities around the US. [ ]
[ ]. . . {more head shaking about that “church”—it sounds more like one of Satan’s playgrounds where he’s free to do whatever he wants—without opposition}
I’ll repeat: In a patriarchal world, the condition of women and children are a reflection of the “men” in their lives. Men set the tone for what goes on with, and around, the women and children in their orbit. Men police the actions of other males. Normal men function as PROTECTORS and PROVIDERS for the women and children in their orbit.
When women and children are UN-safe and UN-avenged when attacked, it’s an indication that they’re surrounded by inferior, no-quality men.
[A small percentage of predators will always get through initially—among real men, this percentage is kept to a minimum because real men seek retribution of some sort for the wrongs that are done against the women and children in their orbit.]
As a collective, those AA Christians who were aware of it let that church shooting slide (as far as I could tell). I didn't hear of any emergency town hall meetings called by nationally known AA clergy such as Reverend Baby Daddy or Reverend Hot Comb. I don't recall any TV specials featuring AA Black Talking Heads discussing security in the AA slave church. From what I could see, there was never a break taken from Business As Usual.

As so on both a practical AND an energy level, the message was sent out into the Universe that many [if not most] AA Christians are essentially okay with folks shooting them inside their churches during church services. That message was recently repeated and amplified by the Charleston Church Massacre victims' relatives who gave an Unrequested, Inappropriate, Preemptive Forgiveness Free Pass to the killer. That message has a price tag attached to it. A price tag printed in blood.

The Tempo Of Incidents Is Speeding Up

Another thing I notice is that the tempo of these Karmic Overdraft Fees WILL Apply incidents is speeding up. There are more and more incidents, and the time period between incidents is getting shorter and shorter.

If you want to live, you'll get FAR away from the Sacrifice Seat, and FAR away from anybody who is doing anything at all to offer themselves up as The Sacrifice.
