I remember a class I had when I was a kid, it must have bee in like 6th or 7th grade, I would have been 11 or so, and we were watching propaganda films from the Soviet Union that were against the US. The scene that stands out is a homeless dude sleeping on a bench and it was supposedly shot in middle America, Kansas or some shit, and the point the Soviets were trying to make was under capitalism you have people even in the heart of the country living in the streets with no place to go...and, the point they were making was their system is better. So to the point. My teacher, after showing us the film, gleefully pointed out that the scene couldn't have been shot in Kansas 'cause you can see the capitol building, ( in D.C.) in the background!!! We all got a good laugh about that. The point of all that is this: BY THIS TIME WE HAD FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT THE HOMELESS DUDE, IT TURNED INTO A BIG JOKE OVER HOW STUPID THE SOVIETS WERE.
This, my friends, is a large part of the problem...thank God, (or Apple) for our ipods so we don;t have to face these issues...like my professor Ridwan Laher said..."We gonna go to Starbucks and have a revolution over a latte" dude nailed it. Thank God for Starbucks and their pseudo-intellectualism, as well as their fake art on the walls...what a fucking joke.
I say-Get this shit out in the open!! Slavery must be recognized by our government. The rape of Africa by Europeans and their descendants must be acknowledged. The rape and pillage of the Native on this continent must be acknowledged as well.
I am formulating a proposal that I believe is reasonable that will begin to address these issues. To be posted soon...
I am thinking of a quote by Chris Rock I think, it was during a stand up routine and he was discussing race in the US and he led up to one question: When was the last time you saw a Native family eating at Denny's? The native has been systematically destroyed by the government of the United States. Genocide. By this government.
It must be acknowledged. It has to be addressed...
I read a quote in Robinson's book:
"Africa is having to pay a huge price once more for the historical accident that this vast and compact continent brought fabulous profits to western capitalism, first out of the trade in its people and then out of imperialist exploitation. This enrichment of one side of the world out of the exploitation of the other has left the African economy without the means to industrialise." -Kwame Nkrumah, Neo Colonialism: The Last Stage of Imperialism
The west has stripped Africa of it's riches. Then the west stripped the peoples of Africa of their history, language, arts...an appalling statement I read in my text for my Black Studies course is one that spoke of the African not having a past, there is a term for it, but essentially states that African came here with a blank slate.
What? You think for one minute that if an individual is uprooted from their home that wipes out their memory of their home, homeland, language, culture, etc? How deep does white arrogance run?
You can see it in this country. The arrogance of the United States is a direct result of the arrogance of whites...

I wonder if Crosby Stills Nash and Young will do a song about it..."6 dead in Wisconsin..."
It is time for a systemic change in the United States...
Check out this link. Forget about the smile. This bastard was a murderous cop. That's it.
Early Sunday morning a cop invaded a party and murdered several kids one of which was only 14. The S.O.B. went to school with them.
My question is this: Why are 20 year old made sheriffs' deputies? A 20 year old kid has no idea about life as a whole, has barely had any life experiences...Needless to say this cop was horrifically unstable. His instability should have been caught long before he was made a deputy and weapons put into his hand.
Years ago, the deputies in Greene county, Arkansas only made $6.50/hr. Jack-booted thugs that think they're John Wayne. Same with the judges who think they're demi-gods.
This is why I'm teaching my son not to trust the police. He is being taught not to talk to the police unless his momma or daddy are present, and he is being taught not to trust the system as a whole. My distrust, as well as my wife and subsequently our son is a direct result of the abuse, intimidation, bigotry and racism that we have seen and encountered with the police, D.A.'s and judges in this country. This system has no-one to blame but itself.

I'm glad God isn't like most of the natural fathers I know, myself included. I would suck at being god.
I wonder when the Church in America is going to hire a P.R. firm? I'll be willing to bet Jesus wants them to hurry up and get the ball rolling on that:) I can see him up there shaking his head when the Ted Haggards of the world are preaching against their own actions and sexuality oops! Then you get busted!
DISCLAIMER-I AM NOT RELIGIOUS! Religion kills, I am a believer-big difference.
But Jesus is a lot cooler than people give him credit for. In the south-hang on- Kelli just said it. "God is not the God that is represented in the South" She's absolutly right. The churches for the most part-to give some background-I preached in some of the most hardcore Pentecostal churches in the South. In Arkansas. Churches that taught no pants for women, no cutting hair, no makeup, no facial hair on men,(women it was ok), no short sleeves, no t.v. radio if it was christian radio, but only if they played southern gospel music (which is just country-style gospel music) 'cause "christian rock" was definetly out. The only vice one could have while in Pentecost was FOOOOOOD!!!! And Lots of it! Man, I remeber when Brother Gray would call a fast, you could sense the tension in the church, it was palpable. Then when it was over, usually in a day or so, cause the fat asses would be faint with hunger...there would be vats of ro-tel cheese dip, fried chicken, pork steaks, (we were too damn poor to afford pork CHOPS), greens beans and cornbread cakes, ice cream, soda, tons more food, green beans w/bacon black eyed peas fried catfish & hushpuppies...actually it all sounds pretty f*cking good right now, it's harvest time in Oregon these days and I, my friends, have a green card...no, I haven't immigrated (don't get me started on what I think of the terrible way Latinos are being treated in the U.S. now, f*ck the Republicans and these sorry rednecks).
Yeah those were the good 'ole days, listen to the preacher talk about how everybody goin to hell but us. But don't tell that to the Baptists cause they think THEY'RE the only goin to heaven...lots o fun.
Again, did I mention I live in Oregon?
Thinking of that I'd like to take all of these white soccer moms with their ridiculous soccer balls on their mini vans and make like lemmings off a cliff. Same with the SUV drivers trying to navigate their behemoths thru Starbucks drive thru so they can get a caramel macchiato "venti" of course, with its 750 calories or so "food porn" I heard someone refer to it...along with a blueberry ooze cake...then listen to them bitch about how their trucks and their asses can't fit thru the drive thru (I've got to get a picture of that). What has this country come to? A bunch of whining white racists worried sick that "the Mexicans" are going to take over or worse yet, "the Blacks" may buy a house in their neigborhood.
My wife and I moved to Portland from the south, in particular North Carolina, in the blue ridge range of the great smoky mountains. Don't let the name fool ya, the bud there sucked. Much better here. My Lady was born and raised in a pissant town named Forrest City in Arkansas.
Where did the name come from? The founding fathers, white racist pigs that they were, and still are, (see pat flanagin and hank and samuel flanagin-more on those clowns in the future, there is plenty to say about those pigs...)couldn't seem to come up with anything better so they named it after Confederate "war hero" and founder of the ku klux klan, Nathan Bedford Forrest. Disgusting, huh? Yep that's the south, and I spent 15 years in it. While in Arkansas, from 11/87 until 8/2000, I saw cross burnings on my neighbors lawn in Pocahontas, met a guy who owned land in melbourne, ar, that he proudly displayed a plaque on an oak tree signifying it was a tree used for lynching blacks, saw police beat black people mercilessly, saw poverty, oppression of blacks, and an utter unwillingness for the politicians to do anything. When I was walking to work one morning in 1989 I rounded the corner and saw several police cars, cops, news, neighbors, etc standing around a smoldering cross that had been pushed over into the grass. The police response? "Awww its just some rednecks out fooling around" The outrage I felt and feel still over some damn white redneck cop dismissing such hate as a "redneck joke" fuels my contempt for the white system we have in this country.
I really dig my Intro to Black Studies Class, I'm going to continue on in that, and perhaps law school. I'm 39 on 10/21, but my life is just beginning. I'm so thankful for my Lady and my son, as well as my other children. More about that and the ridiculousness of the discriminating Child Support scam in the US. God help these bastards when I get my degrees...Your time is coming.
Peace to all who need it, and to those that have tried to murder me in the past and destroy my life and my families'-the clock is ticking...
