I Was Not Going To Blog About The Passing Of Chadwick Boseman, Until I Came Across This…..

Chadwick Boseman recalled being fired from a TV show after questioning the racial stereotypes of his role

Boseman said the role — in a soap opera on a major network — was possibly stereotypical. He played a young black man “with a violent streak pulled into the allure of gang involvement” and with “barely a glimpse of positivity or talent in the character.” Boseman didn’t want to judge the character, but he brought it up in a meeting with the show’s executives after filming the first couple of episodes.

It didn’t go well.

“I was let go from that job the next day,” Boseman said.

The soap opera in question was not named by Boseman, but he had appeared in All My Children and was quickly replaced. His replacement was none other than the actor Boseman played opposite in The Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan. Boseman went on to state that when he questioned the soap opera’s executives, they didn’t much like being questioned about how they were casting a Black male actor on the show. They wanted a Black actor to play a violent Black man whose mother was on heroin and so he was in foster care. Of course the character’s father had abandoned the family some years past.

This is how white executives in Hollywood want American descendants of slavery to be viewed. We are nothing more than a stereotype to them; something to show that we have a violent nature and therefore, need to be brought to heel, which is what Hilary Clinton stated. Joe Biden damn near said the same thing which is why he, for hours on the senate floor, talked up his 1994 crime bill that resulted in extended sentences for millions of American descendants of slavery.

And even though Chadwick Boseman questioned his role in All My Children, I wonder why he did not question his role in The Black Panther Movie brought to YOU by Disney and Marvel Comics because I am quite sure that he knew what the REAL and TRUE Black Panther Party and Movement was all about. I am pretty sure that he knew that when anyone initiated a search for “Black Panther,” some Disney and Marvel Comics bullshit would pop up first. Not to mention, that Boseman’s character was an African and the same typecasting was used in that film as was used in All My Children since the very same actor who went on to play a role he previously questioned, played a similar role in “The Black Panther Movie.” Didn’t Michael B. Jordan play the role of an American descendant of slavery who had a violent nature and would kill anyone without hesitation, even women? I did not look at the movie, but I certainly read enough blogs detailing what it was all about and how vicious the only actor portraying an American descendant of slavery was made to appear.

Growing up with top marks in school, Stevens went on to attend and graduate from the United States Naval Academy and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, before joining the United States Navy SEALs. Within the SEAL teams, Stevens was deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Africa, where he had the highest count of confirmed kills amongst everyone from his unit. Stevens also participated in several stateside missions in the United States of America. Due to his ruthlessness, while serving within the military, Stevens eventually gained the nickname “Killmonger.”

So in other words, questioning stereotypes is non-essential when there is more money involved because I am quite sure that compared to what All My Children was offering as a salary was nothing in comparison to what Chadwick Boseman made from starring in “The Black Panther” by Disney and Marvel Comics.

I have no idea what had become of Killmonger’s mother since I did not watch that farce of a film, but if whites are going to front the money for this type of movie, even though the screenwriters are reported to be Black; Joe Robert Cole and Ryan Coogler, they had better make damn sure that they get full approval from the white man and his input had better take stage, front and center and it would seem as with “The Black Panther Movie” brought to YOU by Disney and Marvel Comics, that is exactly what happened.

Boseman may have had a problem when he was typecast in All My Children as having had a heroin addict for a mother, was vicious and a foster child, whose father had long since abandoned him, but he had no such qualms when it came to starring in a movie that had an even worse role for an ADOS; that of being an unrelenting, vicious killer, even of women whose sole aim was to take over a kingdom that could fight back against colonialism and use it to free HIS people while the African continued to look to the colonizer as a savior.

It is fine to be all holier than thou, but if you want to start out that way, stay the course, you’ll be more believable. And make no mistake, ALL Black women are NOT heroin addicts, nor are we all single mothers. My husband was the first man to know me intimately and my son had two parents and neither one of us smoked cigarettes, much less did we use heroin. My father and my mother were married when they had me, their first, and though my father drank and my mother smoked cigarettes, neither had ever used illegal drugs and there are plenty of other Black families who do not and will not fit in with the whites’ agenda of us in trying to make it seem as though we are the worst things walking when whites are so low, they should be slithering and crawling across this planet since they are damn parasites.

I seriously wish that Black people would stop seeking the white man’s money at the expense of their soul because it is not worth it. Chadwick Boseman, only two years after playing his so-called, most ‘iconic’ role, is now dead at the age of 43 from colon cancer. And though he will be widely known for his role in “Black Panther,” brought to YOU by Disney and Marvel Comics, I am sure many, as did I, did not even know that he had also played Thurgood Marshall, in “Marshall.” Thurgood Marshall was the Supreme Court’s first and in my opinion, ONLY American descendant of slavery to have the dubious honor of being a Supreme Court justice since I don’t even recognize that Uncle Tom Clarence Thomas as one of us. Thurgood Marshall was the best justice the Supreme Court EVER had or EVER will have, bar none.

So to the Black folks who donned dashikis, African head wraps and other African attire and headed to a movie theater to see Disney and Marvel Comic’s version of Black Panther, as you can see, there is no Wakanda, there is no vibranium, there is no magical kingdom in Africa that is hidden from the pasty-assed colonizers who are still colonizing Africa and are the reasons why our Black asses are in Amerikkka, getting shot in the back, in our beds, getting kneed to death, lynched and so forth and so on. We are still the faces of health care disparities since ‘they’ tell us that colon cancer is preventable, but Chadwick Boseman just died of colon cancer at the age of 43. We are supposedly the faces of COVID-19 and since we are, then we are also ‘collectively’ The Face of Death. The whites tell us that we Black women are heroin addicts and single mothers and so our children are predators, thugs and vicious killers when what could be more vicious, more predatory like than those pasty-faced creatures that have crawled and slithered ALL across this planet, raping, pillaging, destroying, colonizing, brutalizing, enslaving, stealing and waging war on entire continents with impunity while judging those who inhabited colonized regions as savages? Those monstrous creatures sit on their debased, slimy asses and judge others and deem them to come up short when you shameless shits should not even have the ability to slither up a blade of grass, much less walk upright since you come from Neanderthals; you cave dwelling devils.

Whites, if you think for one damn second that I would ever buy your bullshit or participate in the degrading, demeaning shit that you have Black actors and actresses starring in, you’d better don ‘black’ face and play those roles your damn selves. Your next movie, “400+ Years A Slave” had better see YOUR damn pasty asses all got up in ‘black face’ and with YOUR damn dyed black backs getting pretend whipped. You don’t have a problem donning ‘black’ face any other time, what with your minstrel shows and shit, but you’ll not find any takers here. I’d rather have rags draping my ass than accept your thirty pieces of dirty silver and have to call myself a “sell out.”

And for those stupid Black shits who are screeching and wailing that Chadwick Boseman has finally reached, “Wakanda,” seriously!! Shut the fuck up!!

 

Opinion: Land of the Free Whites, Home of the Brave Blacks — Kreb Talk

Don’t believe the title of this piece? Let’s take a deeper look to fully understand how the title of this piece is absolutely true. Let’s talk labor. Two-hundred fifty years of free slave labor and another hundred years of Jim Crow created an economy that no other nation on earth could compete with.

Let’s talk inventions. All non-miseducated people know that the biggest thing the white man invented in America was the U.S. Patent Office in order to steal the rights to everyone else’s inventions. Inventions come out of necessary. Inventions mostly make doing things easier. It’s hard to invent something sitting on the plantation porch watching slaves do all the work. I guess one invention that could come from such sedentary work would be a fly swatter.  […]

via Opinion: Land of the Free Whites, Home of the Brave Blacks — Kreb Talk

And this is a comment from, of course, a white man in response to Kreb’s post about what whites have invented.

“Where I disagree is that white people added nothing to invention and innovation to the progress of society.”

And here is MY comment to that!

“Oh yeah! Whites invented shit;bombs, missiles, drones, GMO food, syphilis, smallpox, AIDS, ‘the clap’, torture, christianity which is actually a bold faced lie, alcohol, heroin, crack, napalm, Agent Orange, white phosphorous, war crimes, lies, hypocrisy, lawyers, criminal banks, Payday loans, furniture loan stores, FICO scores, credit cards, 30-year mortgage loans, taxes, indoctrination, abduction, slavery, shackles, prisons, identity theft; you know, ALL the things that have made OUR lives SO much better! And I hope you can tell that by “better,” I am being totally sarcastic.”

So yeah! You whites can most definitely take the blame for inventing shit that we SO fucking didn’t need and is why we are in deep shit today. So, why didn’t you debased white-assed motherfuckers just stick with inventing the goddamn ‘flyswatter’? The Indians certainly did NOT need your inventions; smallpox, smallpox blankets, alcohol, syphilis and other diseases that you filthy white, nasty disease dripping pus dickheads gave them and now you want to claim that you have spearheaded any gains in the advancement of medicine. I guess you had to find a way to cure your fucking clap and syphilis and now you’ve become so debased that even your so-called medical advancements are nothing since you can’t even cure the genital warts that look like cauliflower that’s all on your nasty private parts, nor can you cure the herpes that’s attached to it and that’s all around your nasty lipless mouths.

And tell me, how do you think that inventing nuclear shit is helping us since you debased white shits then proceeded to put that nuclear shit right on goddamn fault lines and there are earthquakes occurring in California as I type this and what the fuck do you think is going to happen when an earthquake and a nuclear power plant meet? Paradise? Millions of people are going to die because of what whites invented since not a goddamn thing you degenerate, stupid, brain dead idiots invented was in any way, shape or form, something that was beneficial to those of us who are ‘humans’ and not parasites.

Kreb was spot on when he said,

“Let’s talk leadership. Whether it was during Reconstruction when the nation was in a very, very bad situation after years of civil war and political turmoil, or during the Great Recession of 2007-2008, or during every single war this country has fought, white America has depended on Blacks to pull the country out of very, very bad places.”

That’s certainly true since Amerikkkan descendants of slaves have fought in every war that this country has started here or elsewhere and what the fuck did they get for their efforts? They got racism shoved down their throats. When Amerikkka finally entered the war against Germany, which by the way, was won by the Russians since Amerikkkans are Nazis, Amerikkkans brought the Nazis over here and had them stand guard over the American descendants of slaves who had fought for this country and the so-called “Allies” against Nazi Germany. The American descendants of slaves officers were not even allowed in the “Officer’s Club” even as German Nazi so-called ‘prisoners of war’ were. So, who was the goddamn enemy? Certainly NOT the Nazis since Amerikkka harbored them, had then stand guard over Amerikkkan descendants of slaves and just recently returned a 90 year-old Nazi back to Germany. So, these Nazi shits over here do indeed know exactly where their Nazi brothers are ‘hiding’. But when they are of no further use to them, why they then send those Nazi fucks packing.

Kreb was also spot on when he said:

“Let’s talk culture. Everyone who doesn’t live under a rock and leaves their home every now and then or peeks at some type of media knows that there is no such thing as white culture in America. American culture is wholly owned and operated by American Descendants of Slaves. Don’t give me this shit about apple pie and baseball. You know as well as I do that all that shit is Black and I’m not about to present a dissertation on it. “

Yes indeed, tell me what the fuck is ‘white culture’. You debased monstrosities don’t have a culture. All you have is disease, destruction, theft, enslavement and war going on and that vile shit is most definitely NOT culture! So what culture do you have? Sunbathing to try and darken your pallid, flimsy flesh? Dog hair? Because that’s what you smell like, oh and fish. So, is smelling like fish, your culture? Because if it is, I wants no parts of it. In the comments, one of y’all know account whites, please post what you think is ‘white culture’ because damn if I know.

Kreb just continues to hit it out of the ballpark:

Let’s talk beauty. White people have duped so many Blacks that European beauty is the standard of beauty in America. They don’t believe that shit themselves. Even during slavery, white women made female slaves cover their hair and skin as much as possible. It was common for white women to lacerate the faces of their female slaves. Of course, this was all to make the female slave less attractive to her white men. Too bad for her, because nothing she did to make the Black female slave unpleasant to her white men worked. White men could not keep their hands and bodies off Black slave women and girls. Similarly, white men often took the brawniest male slave, that they referred to as “bulls”, from his newly purchased batch of slaves, stripped him naked, pull out his penis, and deflowered the male slave anally in front of the male slave’s wife and children in order to socially demasculinize him. If you think about it, this same construct is still going on today behind the lens of mainstream media (marginalizing Black beauty) and the criminal justice system (demasculinizing Black men).

Damn Kreb, I’m about speechless because you’ve damn near covered it all! Those debased white shits did in fact, do just as you described. In fact, the field of gynecology is what it is today thanks to Black slave women because white motherfuckers experimented on them without the benefit of anesthesia while mutilating them and also caused many of them to die from the experiments done on them and it continues to this day. Ask the family of Henrietta Lacks since they are suing Johns Hopkins Hospital Systems for using Ms. Lacks cancer cells for their benefit and never told her what they were doing to her and of course, she was an Amerikkkan descendant of slaves; she was just something to be used. She wasn’t a human being in the eyes of those Nazis at Johns Hopkins, just as none of us who are Amerikkkan descendants of slaves are viewed as human when whites certainly can lay no claim to that distinction.

Yes indeed, this vile ass shit that whites have been perpetrating against us began with our ancestors having been dragged over here to this shithole and it continues. Nothing has changed. Trust those worthless pale-assed creatures? Not on your life! And it goes without saying that a Black woman IS beauty defined, hence why white female parasites hate those thin lines that pass for lips, hate their flat asses, hate the paleness of their flimsy flesh and hate that dog hair that smells like a wet dog and actually resembles dog hair and if anyone is in any doubt of that, go here where there is plenty of proof.

And Kreb continues:

I ask all white people who reads this piece to honestly ask yourself if you think your people would have made the progress that American Descendants of Slaves have made in this country given them a 350 year head start in the vices of slavery and Jim Crow? Your greatest fear is that having that same power, American Descendants of Slaves would perpetrate the same vices on you that you’ve done and still do on us this very day. Almost all Blacks don’t give a damn about “getting you all back”. We know how counterproductive that would be. We also know that if you all just played on a level playing field, the chips will fall in our side of the field. You know that too. So yes, all this is the reason why this is the land of the free whites and home of the brave Blacks.

The only reason you pasty-assed rejects from who the hell knows where have nothing to fear from us is because we are nothing like you debased, depraved, blood thirsty, vile, vicious, barbaric, blood sucking leeches. We aren’t parasites and therefore, we don’t roam the planet in search of what we can suck, bone fucking dry from everyone, everything, everywhere. That’s what the fuck YOU whites are! And this is why you sit on your debased asses and look at us humans as the problem and incarcerate us by the millions, attempting to kill us off by the millions because that is what you are; filthy murderers! Oh yes, you invented shit alright! And that is exactly what you invented; shit! Not a damn thing that you ‘invented’ promoted peace, love, kindness, empathy, justice and freedom because you are too busy ‘inventing’ shit that kills, destroys, starts wars, inflicts pain and whatever else that leads to the total annihilation of us all. You have destroyed the air we breathe, the water we drink, the bees that help provide the food we eat. You have murdered entire species of plant, human and animal life. You have filled the air with toxins, the oceans with radiation and even the soil that we use to grow our food is nothing but a toxic waste dump and that is why we are all walking toxin factories about to drop dead because of the vile shit that whites ‘invented’. You whites are the mortal enemy to this entire godforsaken planet that you have manged to destroy. You fucking took paradise and destroyed it and now you debased creatures are looking to head to Mars? Your fucking asses are going down with the rest of us! So, you sit back and enjoy what YOU set in motion; floods, earthquakes, wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes; entire planetary upheaval. You set this shit in motion and now want to run from what’s coming for your ass! You ain’t going NO goddamn where!

But please, PLEASE, go ask your lord and savior and racist-in-chief, Donald J. Trump for some help when you and your shit gets fucked up because Monday, July, 8th, even the White House basement was flooded. Washington, DC was flooded. So if he can’t even keep the official residence of this shithole, dry, then what the fuck do you think he can do for your dumb white ass? Not a goddamn thing. People in California who were impacted by two major earthquakes are even now, sleeping on mattresses in their front yard because the only thing the governor of California did for them was to take his stupid ass to the affected areas for a photo op, shake his head and say, “I feel for you!,” hopped right on back in his helicopter and took himself the fuck off. Meanwhile, those people are wailing and moaning for some assistance and it SO ain’t coming, it ain’t even funny. Those who are down in New Orleans are even now, flooded out in the famous French Quarter. Go on down and try and enjoy yourself today on Bourbon Street, I dare ya. It’s fucking flooded. Tropical Storm or Hurricane Barry is almost ready to barrel through there and already the Mississippi is about to overflow the levees. HA! Levees! what a joke!

So yeah whites, welcome to YOUR inventions; climate change otherwise known as global warming! Enjoy the wildfires, the floods, the earthquakes, the hurricanes, the tornadoes and the levee breachs; another one of your sorry ass inventions!

 

Power Of The Black Collective — changingthenarrative

I am a dark skin black woman who was born in the UK and was raised in the USA. I moved back to the UK and have been living in the UK since 2006. I do not identify with being American or British because neither of the two respect or honor black people and wish […]

I am so lucky to be raised in USA because it has opened to eyes to see how black people in the UK are treated and we are NOT treated better than black people in USA. We are systematically kept from connecting with each other and realizing our potential as well as knowing and learning from each other.

via Power Of The Black Collective — changingthenarrative

This bears repeating!

“We are systematically kept from connecting with each other and realizing our potential as well as knowing and learning from each other.”

And by this, she means that we are SEGREGATED from each other! Never mind being ‘segregated’ from the whites. I’d love that! I wish we’d always been ‘segregated’ from the whites. If we had, we would not be where we are now. Segregation was more helpful for us than we will ever know.

What does segregation mean?

the enforced separation of different racial groups in a country, community, or establishment.

the action or state of setting someone or something apart from other people or things or being set apart.

Because we allowed ourselves to fall for the whites’ shit in supposedly ‘desegregating’ us from them, what we allowed to happen was the fact that we ‘segregated’ ourselves from one another. After that, we became enemies. Where once we looked out for one another, now we no longer are willing to help pull each other up. We look at one another as enemies instead while the whites sit back in glee and watch us crash and burn.

All you need do is take a look around and see why ‘desegregation’ was not a good thing for Amerikkkan descendants of slaves because for those of you who grew up in the 70s and early 80s, tell me how many Black prostitutes, homeless people and drug addicts did you see? I can honestly say that when I was growing up, I never saw a prostitute or a homeless person. In fact, it was when I was almost an adult was when I first became aware of drugs and that was in the mid 80s when I heard about crack. I had only heard of weed once before I was married and my ex-husband’s friend asked him if he could smoke some weed in our house and I said, “Hell no! We don’t allow smoking in here!” The first I heard about weed was when I found out that my baby sister had been smoking it with her boyfriend, but even then I didn’t even know what it was. That’s how clueless I’ve always been about illicit drugs and why I am SO against drugs, it ain’t even funny.

Maybe because I am from a small town and not a big city is why I was never bombarded with all of the horrors that can be found in big cities. Yes, my baby sister did eventually take up crack, but that was after I was gone from the home and so no, crackheads were certainly not streaming past me every single day. I had to hear by way of a long distance telephone call that my sister was on crack and I’m like, “What’s that?” Nowadays, who the hell can say that? We allowed the whites to introduce that shit into our communities and it was to get us to fall apart in more ways than one and that is exactly what happened.

When we were segregated from the whites and had our own communities, we were the better off for it. There were no whites in my neighborhood and we all got along. Neighbors looked out for the children of their neighbors. Backyard barbecues became neighborhood barbecues, but that does not happen now and do you know why? Look where we’re at? In HUD housing slums. In inner city hovels owned by slumlords that do nothing but collect the rent and take it back to their gated communities. When I was growing up, Black people owned their own homes, businesses and invested in one  another.

A sad fact is that the Black people of yesteryear who were school teachers, lawyers, doctors, business owners and well-paid factory workers are either elderly and ailing or dead and what’s out here now can’t even read, “See Dick and Jane run!” Now how sad is that? There is no such thing as an inner city education. There is no such thing as a two-parent household. There is no such thing as a mother going to school when the teacher sends home an adverse report card on their child. If I brought home a report card that didn’t look right, my mother made it her business to be over at the school getting to the bottom of why because I was always a straight A student, on Honor Roll and some more shit! Likewise, I was the same way with my son, but that cannot be going down with what I see happening with Black children today. And how I know this is because I have ridden city buses when school was let out and the Black children on those buses were screaming, cussing, yelling, fighting and carrying on. That would not have been going on in my day. That wasn’t even going on in my son’s day, but it sure as hell is going down today.

What in the world do you think is going to come out of that? Certainly not another Maya Angelou, nor another Frederick Douglass, Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, Alice Walker, Octavia Butler, Alex Haley and I could go on and on. But there will be none to follow them if our children are allowed to drop out of school or be herded from a classroom straight into a prison cell simply because we are aiding and abetting the white man in his continued enslavement of our minds, our bodies and our souls. We were better than what we are becoming. We were never, as a people, down for disrespecting our bodies, flaunting our wares to all and sundry, taking up the perversions of the sick whites who are a given when it comes to debauchery, sadism, masochism and all things perverted and unnatural. That was never who we were and I damn sure as hell refuse to take that shit up and neither should you. If you have to stand alone, then stand alone, but it is much better to stand alone than to descend into the depths of depravity which is where the white man can be found; lasciviously salivating over ALL that is perverse, deviant, warped, twisted and sick. And that is what the whites want for us. Just look around you because it is ALL around you! Black rappers are mostly gay. The Black man is becoming emasculated right before our very eyes. Beautiful Black women are being encouraged to mate with white parasites and they are doing so and what they are helping to produce is not even entirely human. For what could be brought forth from whites when all you need do is look around at what is going down with this planet to see what makes whites tick; greed, death, disease and destruction. That is all you will get from whites and the proof is what you see each and every day when you open your eyes. They promote nothing but evil, wars and hatred because that is what they are. But that was never us and it is certainly nothing that we should be having anything to do with or even get next to.

If there is to be any segregation, then segregate yourselves from your mortal foe; the white man. But never segregate yourselves from each other. Come together and get back to understanding that we must find what we once shared. We have got to reach out and help one another because we only have enemies outside of our kind and our kind are those of us who are Amerikkkan descendants of slaves. No one on this planet has the background that we do and no one can understand us like we can understand each other if only we will open our eyes, our hearts and our minds to the fact that we need to get it together, my people! I truly hope that we can. Prove me right, I beg you!

If You Don’t Like How Black People Are Depicted In Movies Produced By Whites, Don’t Whine About It, Boycott. It Really Is That Simple.

Hollywood has been depicting Black people in the most demeaning roles since day one and for us to continue to hand over our hard-earned dollars to sit up and watch pure shit is ridiculous even if we are doing so in order to write down our thoughts on just how fucked over Black people are in the latest film to come down the pike.

A blogger I follow never fails to post her perspective on every movie that portrays a Black person or in other words, an American descendant of slaves in a demeaning, stereotypical or otherwise fucked up way and each time she has posted her perspective, not one time has there been a perspective detailing the wonderful and glorifying role for the American descendant of slaves. Each time, the Black body has been compartmentalized such as in ‘The Help’, ‘The Butler’, ‘Gone With The Wind’, ‘Monster’s Ball’, ‘Twelve Years A Slave’, ‘Mandingo’, ‘Birth of A Nation’, ‘The Jazz Singer’, ‘Aladdin’ and the list is endless. Each perspective basically mirrors the previous perspective and on and on it goes.

So my question would be, “Why sit up and watch what you already know that you are going to see and take umbrage with?” Whites are not going to change. Maybe a person is so desperate to be entertained that anything will do, but when the script is always the same and continues in that vein and ends as predicted, why even bother anymore? I just don’t get it. But then again, I don’t watch TV, nor do I spend my money sitting in a movie theater to watch some mess that I know I am going to complain about since whites ALWAYS depict Black people in the worst possible way while at the same time, portraying themselves as saviors and the very milk of human kindness when nothing could be further from the truth.

We get it! Hollywood shits on Black people, ALWAYS and that will never change. Until Black people pool their money together and open their own studios and produce their own movies, the portrayal of Black people in movies as thugs, prostitutes, drug addicts, ghetto hood rats, mammies, butlers, slaves and the like will continue. Whites enjoy their privilege of denigrating Black people and portraying them in the most demeaning ways possible while they sit back and pretend that even their shit don’t stink. But at the same time, since we already know that this shit is going to go down, why continue to sit there and watch that mess? Why give whites your money because when you do, how does that adversely affect them? It doesn’t. It merely emboldens the whites to continue to produce the same vile shit and that is why you are writing a perspective or an analysis that basically says the same thing, over and over again. Nothing changes. You need only change the title of the movie and the perspective or analysis fits each and every movie that has even one Black actor/actress ‘playing’ in it.

One movie the blogger took exception to is titled “Ma, Revenge of the Mammy.” Now, right out of the gate, I am not going to waste my time and especially my money watching something with that title. As I have stated previously, do we need to see any more ‘mammy’ films? Hell no! Why would we? If you’ve seen one ‘mammy’ film, you’ve seen them all.

Another movie that the blogger wrote her perspective on is titled, “Aladdin,” with Will Smith playing the role of a genie. Like I am going to head to a theater to sit up and watch that mess. Hell no! I also read the perspective on “Aladdin” posted by yet another blogger that I follow and he is also Black and he did not like the movie and he stated that Will Smith’s awkward performance as the Genie made him look more like a flamboyant wedding planner than the cosmic comedy act he was supposed to be.

Meanwhile, Black America is burning! Black America is fucked up and Black people are using their voice to write perspectives on why whites are still insisting that Black people play subservient and dumbass roles in white produced films; fake ass fantasy produced by fake ass Hollywood. Why are we even sitting up in movie theaters in the first damn place watching this shit play out? The white man is a given. We know he ain’t about shit and is not about to put a Black person in a role that is uplifting or has any real and true meaning or value for Black people. Whites are our mortal enemy and they show us that shit each and every single day because while you sit your ass up in a movie theater, some Black man, woman and child is getting unholy hell beat out of them by racist cops or are being herded to prison on bullshit drug charges or are being denied loans, housing, employment and some more shit. Homelessness is an epidemic among Black people and because of homelessness, typhus and hookworm are extremely problematic for Black people who we all know don’t get adequate health care if they can get any healthcare at all. Gentrification is taking place all across this country. Focus on that! The few remaining hoods all have Asian liquor stores on every corner. They have ‘convenience’ stores owned by those Hindu motherfuckers on every corner robbing us blind while selling us outdated products at the same time. The Asians are also all up in the hood selling Black hair care products since they have cornered the market on that shit, not to mention the Asian takeout joints selling fried rice and fake ass beef broccoli.

But you want to concentrate on some meaningless shit like a movie. Seriously???!!! You could use your pen and your perspective on what really matters because that shit on a movie screen does not matter since not one of us should be sitting in a movie theater watching movies produced by our mortal enemy. What matters is what is going down daily that you fail to even acknowledge because you want us to understand that Hollywood is continuing to fuck us over in how Black people are typecast. Black America is burning and yet we are supposed to get all bent-out-of-shape over some well-paid Black actors/actresses that do ‘make believe’ when reality needs far more attention than it is receiving. If those Black people have no problem playing the fool, the slave, the butler, the mammy, the white man’s bed wench, the idiot, the prostitute, the pimp, the drug dealer; that shit is on them. There would not be a role for those stereotypes if there were not Black actors/actresses willing to play them and to say that Black people don’t have the money to open their own studios and produce their own movies is pure bullshit because though Blacks in Hollywood are not paid nearly what their white counterparts are paid, many have not done that poorly that they could not pool their money together and in all actuality open their own studios and produce their own movies. But no! They want the white man to pat them on their weave come Oscars time and Golden Globes time and on and on it goes for playing roles that a cockroach wouldn’t take. Again, that shit’s on them!

And you are just as bad as the Blacks who star in those roles because if not for people like you paying the white man when you head inside a movie theater and pay for that ticket, popcorn, soda, nachos and more shit of the like, the white man would not continuously put out those movies. Whites don’t do a goddamn thing unless there is profit in it. Take the profit out and that shit stops. But you won’t do that because Black people love to be entertained even if we are being entertained by watching mammies, slaves, fake ass African kingdoms, Black butlers, maids, pimps and prostitutes. As long as we can watch some make believe fake ass Black Panther “Wakanda Forever” shit and some Aladdin shit and some Twelve Years A Slave, Mandingo, The Help, The Butler, Ma, the Mammy and some more shit of the like, why we is there with bells on and money in hand! We really are our own worst enemy and I see more proof of this every goddamn day. More’s the damn pity!

Even the BBC took umbrage with Octavia Spencer starring in ‘Ma, Revenge of the Mammy.”

Octavia Spencer has played a maid, nurse or cleaner a total of 21 times, including in two of her three Oscar-nominated performances

A creation of white supremacy

Maybe the most important thing to know about mammy, though, is that she never actually existed. As evidenced in the research of historians including Cheryl Thurber and Patricia Turner, while the care of white children in the antebellum US South was sometimes entrusted to enslaved people, these ‘house slaves’ were typically light-skinned teenage girls (conditions for enslaved black women were, in any case, so harsh that 90 per cent died before their 50th birthday). Given the poor diet available to slaves, they were also highly unlikely to have been either fat or jolly. All this, according to the psychologist Chanequa Walker-Barnes, “affirms that Mammy was a largely mythical figure with little basis in the lived experiences of black women.”

Indeed, as Thurber has noted, literary depictions of the mammy peaked several decades after slavery, in nostalgic memoirs of the Old South written between 1906 and 1912. Along with other ‘controlling images’ of African-Americans such as the Sambo, the Jezebel and the Sapphire, the mammy was a creation of white supremacy, intended to bolster and legitimise the status quo. Or, put more simply, the US were so desperate to be absolved of the crimes of slavery, that such an absolver — maternal, asexual, ever-loyal and black — had to be invented.

But yeah, I really want to go see that! And believe me, big fucking eye-roll going on here!

The Forgotten Tale of How Black Psychiatrists Helped Make Sesame Street, the children’s television show entranced preschoolers—and helped teach impressionable black kids. — The Most Revolutionary Act

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Photos Getty In the wake of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4, 1968, a newly formed group called the Black Psychiatrists of America began to challenge their white colleagues to think about racism in a new way. Its members had been discussing for some time the […]

Below is a comment I posted on this article.

“There is no way that Black people, who are mentally ill, can go to whites and expect and receive help because the main reason why many Black people are mentally ill is due to the horrendous racism that we are exposed to, constantly. How then are we supposed to get relief from the very ones who are why we are mentally ill?

When I was in Minnesota, my cousin was seeing white mental health ‘care’ professionals and they filled him so full of poisons, I went to that mental health ‘care’ facility and threw fits. I pointed out the obvious in that the place was filled to bursting with descendants of slaves who had been sent to that facility by the courts which are set up to set up descendants of slaves. I pointed out the fact that there were no Black doctors or therapists on staff and I even filed a complaint with the board. I’ll have you know that the next time I visited that establishment with my cousin, he was asked if he wanted to see a BLACK psychiatrist and a BLACK therapist. There had been none before that time! I refuse to sit somewhere and allow us to get mistreated. If we don’t speak up for ourselves, we will continue to be mistreated and I am having none of it!

He now has to see a Black psychiatrist via Skype since no Black psychiatrist in their right mind would come down here to Hillbilly Hollow, but he requested to see a Black psychiatrist and even though it is via Skype, that is who he is seeing. He requested a Black case manager and that is who he has. His primary care doctor is Black and everyone he sees for his care is Black. We insist upon it and we ALWAYS will. If one refuses to come to us, we come to them or via Skype, but we would have it no other way! And it shouldn’t be any other way! And Black psychiatrists are very much aware of why Black people request them! They know the deal! Just as those depicted in this article knew the deal. It may be a ‘forgotten tale’, but this shit cannot be ‘forgotten’ by us since we still suffer from untold atrocities from being caught up in a system we wanted no part of because we did not immigrate here, our ancestors were dragged here. This shit’s not on us!”

———————————————————————————————————–

American descendants of slaves, I cannot stress to you enough that enough is enough! If we don’t stand up for ourselves, no one else will. We are not here to win a popularity contest and I don’t care who hates my guts, I am going to tell it like it is. When I see fucked up shit, I call it out! If you don’t, you will continue to get shitted on. Get up off that stupid dumbass Facebook and Twitter shit and take a stand against the shit that’s shoved down our throats, daily. You see that I don’t take shit shoved down my throat and you don’t have to either. Whites ain’t fucking playing with us and I ain’t fucking playing with them. You have no idea how much you can accomplish if you simply stand up for yourself and believe me, when you do, you are also helping someone else who looks just like you! Try it! You’ll find out just how right I am. The white devils count on us thinking that we’ve got no choice but to put up with their shit. Show them that you ain’t no punk ass bitch that’ll put up with their racism, prejudice, bigotry and some mo shit! I don’t tolerate their shit and you don’t have to either! To hell with them and their shit!

Why do you think that this article is titled, “The forgotten tale of how Black psychiatrists helped make Sesame Street, the children’s television show entranced preschoolers-and helped teach impressionable Black kids?” It is because everything that we do that’s wonderful is to be ‘forgotten’, overlooked, ignored. The only shit we are to be recognized for is for being criminals and drug addicts, but that’s not who or what we are.

When I lived in Minnesota, I lived in a small town in the middle of no goddamn where that didn’t even have bus service. When I looked at my first electric bill, I noticed that the bill contained a ‘transit tax’. Now, I’m thinking, “What the hell am I paying a ‘transit tax’ for when there is no ‘transit’ out in the middle of this godforsaken nowhere? I picked up the phone and called Metro Transit and asked about that shit. Guess the fuck what! Those worthless white-assed motherfuckers had decided to bring mass transit to the area and after multiple plans and charts and drafts had been drawn up, decided that it just wasn’t feasible to bring bus service to that area. And yet, they continued to charge everyone who lived in that small town, a ‘transit tax’ even though those white fuckers had scrapped bringing transit to the town. Now, this town had mostly white asses in it and yet they were too stupid to look at their electric bill, see that they were paying a ‘transit tax’ and yet there was not a bus or light rail or subway stop any goddamn where! You see, this is how stupid whites really are and yet, they try and portray us as the damn dummies! I screeched and hollered and threatened to go door to door and tell every damn body in that town that they had been paying a transit tax for FOUR, that’s 4 goddamn years for nothing! I told MNDOT(Minnesota Department of Transportation and Metro Transit that I was filing charges of fraud against them for defrauding people out of their money since that is exactly what they did. Guess the fuck what! Transit was introduced to that goddamn city and I was called by the City Administrator and was told that “thanks to you, bus service is being started up and that there was going to be a ribbon cutting ceremony and that I would be requested to speak.” When the bitch found out that I was Black, all that shit changed. The white bitch that they had paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to for her land on which to build the Park and Ride, was featured in the newspaper. The Park and Ride was named for her ass and I was never even an afterthought. But even so, when Metro Transit came in, they took away that goddamn sign with her fucking name on it and put up “Metro Transit Park And Ride.” So the city authorized and paid for, with our tax dollars, a big ass brick sign with her name and ‘Park and Ride’ chiseled on it, all for nothing. Whites are lethal and ferocious in their fucking racism!

Now do you see how fucking racist whites are?!!! Were you ever in ANY doubt because if so, I’ve erased any and all of it! Those racist bastards never publicly acknowledged that I was the reason bus service was brought to that area and they never will, but I got the satisfaction of pissing off multiple whites while at the same time, helping the few Black people who lived in that area have reliable transportation to and from Minneapolis, MN. This is what we can do Black folks when we put our mind to it! And even though we don’t get recognized for our accomplishments and achievements, don’t let that deter you from trying. It has never deterred me and it won’t. Those white bastards want us to give up when we never receive recognition for the great and good things we do, but it ain’t about their awards and shit, it’s about the fact that we don’t give up and we help one another out! So keep on keeping on, but you ain’t going to get it done by sitting all up on Facebook and Twitter. That shit is meaningless. Do something meaningful for a change and you can make a difference! Believe me, I know!

Taye Diggs Is Now ‘Tanya Diggs’!

wtf1

Unfortunately, Stella, you cannot get your groove back AGAIN with Taye Diggs as the co-star because Taye Diggs is now playing a transgender role in the broadway show, Hedwig And The Angry Inch. And according to ‘Tanya Diggs’, he has ‘a flaming gay man’ inside of him.
The claim is that his son, by a white woman, is “cool with it,” even though he is only five years old. Quite frankly, I think that ‘Tanya Diggs’ five year old son is really cool with all the colors that have been painted on his daddy’s face. I mean, the only thing I can remember at age five was reciting the colors when my kindergarten teacher held them up. In a few years, I wonder will his son remember to be “cool with it” when he realizes that his daddy had his face painted and was tarted up to look like a really ugly woman…uh..I mean, transgender.

It would appear that every man is being bitten by the transgender bug and Hollywood is certainly hell bent on glorifying the truly ludicrous. Yes, I know, each to his or her or ITS own, however, I cannot help but wonder at the sudden explosion of LGBT in every direction from the Supreme Court to Broadway to the Espy Awards. It would also appear that roles for heterosexuals will soon be on the decline and quite obviously, by design. I suppose it is a good thing that I had no aspiration of becoming a star because if I did, I would have to play the role of a dyke in order to get a part.

We have certainly come so far from the days of watching movies in black and white when married couples slept in separate twin size beds and the love scene consisted of a quick peck on the cheek. Sigh! How I wish for days long gone! Oh, the Victorian in me recalls the quaintness of courting, waiting for marriage before engaging in sex and the refusal to expose our children to pageants and make-up and magazines that inspire them to emulate the obscene, the deviant and the perverted; not to mention, the look of starvation and the introduction to STDs and pregnancies as early as nine. But they tell me that this is progress. Well, I guess ‘they’ know better. However, when I look around, ‘they’ apparently, really don’t know what ‘progress’ really means. And again, someone once asked the question, “Does God owe Sodom and Gomorrah, an apology?” I would hazard a guess that ‘God’ does indeed, owe Sodom and Gomorrah, an apology because if this is considered ‘progress’, then I cannot see how we are all the better for it!

I’m Just Too Stubborn To Conform!

nonconformist

Place the noose around my neck.
Leave me for the birds to peck.
Drown me in a sea of blood.
I’ll be washed away in that crimson flood.

Do not think to quench my thirst.
I broke the rules, I’m now accursed.
Throw me in the lion’s den.
I’ll never make it out again.

Douse me good with gasoline.
Sit back and watch the fiery scene.
Beat me until my bones do break.
Then toss me in with a rattlesnake.

Bury me while I’m still alive.
Place a bet that I won’t survive.
Shove me off the train platform.
I’m just too stubborn to conform.

I would much rather stand alone,
than kneel before the emperor’s throne,
nor suffer fools that stand in line,
and feed at the trough of elitist swine.

I wrote this poem for all who dare to question, who will not just accept, but will ask the tough questions, seek their own answers, dare to take a stand, even if you stand alone! I will not follow the crowd, nor will I conform to the dictates of a fucked up society that can no longer discern the innocent from the guilty and quite actually believe that the innocent are the guilty and the guilty are innocent. You choose ignorance and obedience. I choose truth and justice and that is why I have no problem standing alone!

Your Subliminal Message, I Repel!

subliminal2

A blank page is like a challenge,
it screams at me to speak,
And to look inside myself,
to find what makes me so unique.

I am a wonder and an enigma,
and not just muscle, tissue and bone.
There are depths that beg exploring,
to take a journey into the unknown.

The time for introspection,
is when I just can’t figure out,
what makes me who I am,
and what I think I know, I doubt.

Is there some fundamental flaw,
or a lack of fortitude,
that keeps me vacillating,
about what I do and what I should?

To all the questions in my mind,
am I looking for success,
as defined by a society,
with a perfectionist complex?

Your lies should not define me,
nor should you control my thoughts.
You keep me guessing and obsessing,
over my weight, my looks and my warts.

The outside has no substance.
It’s just an ever changing shell.
And when next I see my image,
your subliminal message, I repel.

This one is about the need to stop identifying with a society obsessed with perfection as defined by said society via Hollywood movies, magazines and models. Real beauty is what is in your heart. The beauty of your heart should be more desirable than some image that has been displayed and upheld as, perfection. This is why we have lost sight of what is truly important. If we look inside ourselves and find that there are things that we can change about why we hate certain people or why we are cold and callous, then that is a good start. Beauty begins from within and if your heart is beautiful because you are caring, compassionate, empathetic, sympathetic, loving, kind and concerned about others, step in front of a mirror and that inner beauty is what you shall behold.
