“We Must Deal With Them”


ryan1

For one moment let’s break Paul Ryan statement down to its roots. Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan stated… “We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular…” Obviously this is a broad statement considering the fact there are 19,355 cities in the US, but it leaves room for denial on his part if called to the carpet to answer if he is race baiting with his Tea Party white constituent political base.

Paul Ryan offered clarification to this statement by including specifically “men.” Continue…”of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value of the culture of work.”

Paul Ryan clarifies cities with the term “inner cities” which refers to the central section of a city where mostly ” Poor and middle-class Black Americans live.” Inner City is code term for America’s white racist. Believing that Black people only live there, destroying the landscape and real estate once occupied by their white grandfathers and mothers. Paul

Paul Ryan stated specifically… “in our inner cities.”

Paul Ryan himself was raise in a small white suburban town called Janesville, WI. But, Ryan believes like other (tens of millions) arrogant white people that they are rightful owners to all the land of these United States.

He did not specify which cities in particular are a “tailspin of culture.” Are we to think and believe that P.R., believes only Black men live in inner cities? Did anyone ask that specific question? Although white men living in inner cities are more than likely employed than Black men.

How do we know for a certainty he was specifically referring to Black men exclusively?

Because obviously White men and Black men cultures are different as the two shades black and white.

HE WAS NOT REFERRING TO WHITE CULTURE.
NOR DOES HE COMPREHEND THE IMPACT OF TRUE BLACK CULTURE, NOT WHAT HE READS ABOUT OR HEAR ABOUT IN MAINSTREAM MEDIA OUTLETS.

Paul Ryan fully understands U.S. cities culture and race demographics. Ryan majored in economics and political science or “Political Snake Charming,” at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

Paul Ryan race baiting statement ends in part suggesting or warning to his white constituents… “There is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with.”

What does he mean by “deal with…?”

Other than increasing the present and past Black male hyper-incarceration rates, illicit drugs dealings, gangs and gun violence across America. I can not imagine a worse groups social-culture condition(s), except Jewish people sufferings during Nazi Germany attempted genocide of them. Or may be Paul Ryan is signaling a return to American good old Institution of Slavery.

What do you think Black America?

Sounds to me like James Brown Hit song, “The Big Payback” lyrical lines sung in Paul Ryan voice… “I going to deal with you. I want revenge, my patience thin. I want revenge.”

Finally, Black People need to “Wake Up, Unify and Do For Self. Just as White People have done and continue to here in America the past 400 years!

 

The Black Conservative Town Hall 2013


FOX’s Sean Hannity Show hosted a Black Conservative Town hall and since then this video has spread like wild fire. It brought up issues many people liberal and conservative alike could relate to. Blacks began to find that there are not wide divisions between their conservative counterparts and themselves. This could be a great start for Blacks as we need to come together and start healing and talking to form the new Underground Railroad. Seeing that we really have more in common than differences will start to break down the walls of division and help us to start to focus on the true enemy that keeps us from moving forward.
This is a great video that needs to be shared in its entirety. Many people want to know about the elusive Black Conservative. Well here is a segment of us in a town hall answering questions and talking about issues and matters near and dear to our hearts.
I am sure if people listen to this with an open mind they will find some pieces where they can agree and find common bonds. The differences, well as I always say; We shall have to agree to disagree. However this video is very interesting and is great food for discussion.

Black People Need To Arm Themselves, Get MORE Guns


It’s been a minute Milwaukee. People showed up in my life and asked me to spend time researching some serious ish regarding this nation, this world and my people. One of the things we spent time discussing is gun legislation and whether or not my people are on the wrong side of this debate.

Let me be clear. YOU, EVERYONE has the right to do what they want in this country as long as you aren’t breaking the law.

Back to my commentary…in the video above, nuthead Ann Coulter tries her best to come across as the defender of the Black Right to own guns. She’s a trip so let’s forget the messenger…the messege is something different.

History does teach US (some of US) that the government NEVER wanted the Black Race to be armed. They wanted us mentally and physcially unable to do for self and protect our people. At the same time, the majority population enjoyed the freedom of the 2nd Amendment (and all of them) and have voraciously defended it.

All I will tell you is that I’m carrying and the steel will be hot and smoking when neccessary.

How can WE protect OURSELVES with the back of our hands in the face of someone armed to do OUR PEOPLE harm?

Look, the time is long overdue for US to understand that WE need to arm OURSELVES.

Habari Gani Senator Grothman!


104402591_640

This letter is a formal request demanding an apology from Wisconsin State Senator Glenn Grothman for his recent remarks about Kwanzaa. Actions of a more serious nature are to follow but for now, until you return my call as your staff promises, this will be a start.

In speaking with his staff today he was said to have done “extensive” research regarding Kwanzaa’s background and its founder. His extensive research missed quite a bit of current research, critical research!! I figured as much.

When doing important research, one should include participation in said event. For the Senator any Kwanzaa holiday event in this decade or ever for that matter would have sufficed. Senator Grothman was inconclusive and lacking full knowledge of what Kwanzaa has metamorphosed into. He also has not sought counsel from anyone who has direct insight into Kwanzaa and how we use it to bring about change and celebrate our accomplishments in the Black community. For a year’s passing we fight on the battlefield to try and curb crime, battle senseless violence and many other social ills, most times by ourselves with little assistance. We celebrate triumphs of our community that go under reported in a world that thrives on seeing negative images of Black stereotypical imagery and ignorance every night. While many saw Sandy Hook memorialized, we live it daily. Guns and shootings are very much a part of our world 24/7 with no moments of silence, no presidential speeches, and little talk about gun control.

For a week, we take time off to come together in unity to share our experiences and memorialize, unify, and reorganize so we can move forward, together for another year and pick each other up to make it through to the next year. Can many other communities even fathom what it is like to live how we live with almost no support? This is a time we can stand together in unity and love, battle worn and prepare for another year of surviving as we do? This is our time to do that and so much more. We educate, we elevate, we support, we celebrate. Kwanzaa is a week’s worth of addressing many things good and bad in our community. It is a conference of sorts to help us help each other make things better. We recruit the young from the streets into “our gangs” and get them off the streets to let them know there is hope and love awaiting them.

Now last I checked that is what some outspoken white folks keep harping on that Blacks need to get it together and address “our  issues”. Look what happens when we do? We get lynched for it!!! What is it you want Senator Grothman, a better Black community addressing our problems and issues or do you want us to ignore it all and keep shooting each other up, stay barefoot and pregnant? Pick which you prefer and get back to us!

Senator Grothman there is much more to Kwanzaa than you could ever know and if you got your head out of a book or away from uninformed people and met with real Blacks of differing varieties and did some real homework, you would see and meet people who would love to educate you to why this holiday is so desperately needed for our nation, not just for Blacks, and not just Wisconsin Blacks. There is much to Kwanzaa you missed and I feel so badly for you because you missed out on some great experiences to serve what purpose with your ill-advised statement. Sometimes when you don’t know something it is best to remain silent. Yes Kwanzaa is here to stay and it grows larger each year. No it is not a “white/hard-core left winger” holiday, we own this holiday (one thing no one can take from us) and we welcome people of every shade, color and creed each year. As I look around with so many people starving for “hope and change” (pun intended!) Kwanzaa will always be a welcome holiday with all its wonderful principles. As long as men fight and resources are limited, Kwanzaa will always be needed. As long as society argues and embraces hate, Kwanzaa will always be needed. Kwanzaa is a lovefest and it is too bad you missed your opportunity to unite with others and gather to just commune as one family because it seems like you needed it too! Maybe this is what you do not like about Kwanzaa. Kwanzaa is out of your control and is no longer a Black celebration but it is becoming a truly multicultural event because many people see its value in their lives as well which is why it is spreading. Especially in Wisconsin where fighting has become the norm, Kwanzaa’s values and guiding principles are a treasure for all!

Regardless of who founded Kwanzaa and what questionable circumstances surrounded the initial event, Kwanzaa like many American holidays has outgrown its past and its founder. We could say this of all American holidays that were started by racists or bigots or even presidents who owned US! We still pay tribute to  “great” presidents and leaders who were slave owners who took slaves as their mistresses and birthed bastard babies left to rot on plantations. I guess that is okay by you? I do not see you Senator spitting on their legacies or holidays. Your forked tongue is disgusting and sickening to me as a Black American, as a proud African Conservative American, as an American period. Your divisive statement, your lack of knowledge, your press release and why you chose to target Blacks especially after an election when we as Conservatives learned embarrassingly we need to build bridges with Blacks not burn them really makes me determined to get rid of mindsets like yours which cause our movement great angst! Your press release set us back about 50 years and for what reason? You needed attention? Someone Black cut you off that day? You miss Senator Lena Taylor? Well here she comes! It is people like you who we do not need in our movement and I do hope that you either learn real fast you need to apologize, and you make a big donation to the Black Conservative movement here in Milwaukee. Either way it won’t end well for you until you concede you made a very foolish mistake and you learn from it.

Example: on President’s Day will you release a similar press releases about George Washington activities and celebrations in schools and such and other presidents who defiled Black slaves? I don’t think you will so why start now against a people who have already been dealt their share of atrocities? Do you see where your slippery slope has taken you Senator Grothman? Wasn’t smart was it? Time to apologize!!

It is time for you to get a clue or get to steppin’ as we say in where I come from. And to save you the hassle, I am 100% Black African Conservative. Today you shame my people and our Conservative movement. You embarrass me.

We cannot claim a holiday as our own like our Hispanic and Asian brothers and sisters to mention a couple. If you remember those were taken from us. We have but a few things we cherish and this is one. However being the selfless people we are we share this gift with you still. And though you showed bigotry, your invitation for next year’s event to light the Kinora candle awaits you. How forgiving a people we are! This is the heart of the Black because we are compassionate and we are a loving people always. Even in the face of pure hate and evil we show God’s mercy and forgiveness.

However you do have to atone for your words and your LACK of exploring deeper than paper. You simply must. When you are ready, we will take you into our world and then it is time for you to understand the plight of the Black of 2012. Living in 1960 something is pretty useless when talking about the here and now of Kwanzaa.

Until then however this cannot be washed away or overlooked. You must not make such a careless statement and walk away. This statement was like spitting in the face of our ancestors and it cannot be taken lightly. And it is only fitting that a fellow conservative be the one to re-light the Kinora to start the atonement.

There will be no peace until there is atonement for your hate manifested into words. Sadder yet there are Blacks and Africans who share the Senator’s sentiments. There is not much I can do about them. They have that right afforded them by the First Amendment. The difference with them is that they did not use the media to make an attack against a people who did not attack them. This Senator did and now he must atone and right his tragic wrong and we shall not be moved until he does.

Trust and believe if you don’t get it together, there will be an alter call, Kwanzaa re-celebration, Black History Month, etc… and all things Black at your office and in your face real soon. Get it together Senator. You have been warned!!

Peace Family,

Why Must We Still Hear About Kwanzaa?

Madison: Why are hard-core left wingers still trying to talk about Kwanzaa – the supposed African-American holiday celebration between Christmas and New Year’s?
As has been well publicized, Kwanzaa is not some African or African-American tradition. It was invented in 1966 by Ron Karenga, a 1960s radical leader and founder of something called the “US Organization”. This group, often referred to as the “United Slaves” is even more radical than the Black Panthers. The United Slaves killed two Black Panther members and Karenga himself wound up going to prison for assaulting some of his own members. Karenga was a racist and didn’t like the idea that Christ died for all of our sins, so he felt blacks should have their own holiday – hence, Kwanzaa.

Of course, almost no black people today care about Kwanzaa – just white left-wingers who try to shove this down black people’s throats in an effort to divide Americans. Irresponsible public school districts such as Green Bay and Madison (and who knows how many others, see links below) try to tell a new generation that blacks have a separate holiday than Christians. Waring Fincke, left-wing West Bend lawyer and vice chair of the Washington County Democratic Party, encouraged people to learn more about Kwanzaa in a column in July. Fortunately, almost all black people ignore Waring Fincke and his ilk and their efforts to divide Americans.

But why do they do it? They don’t like America and seek to destroy it by pretending that its values as expressed in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution, don’t apply to everyone. Mainstream Americans must be more outspoken on this issue. It’s time it’s slapped down once and for all. With tens of millions of honorable black Americans in our country’s past, we should not let a violent nut like Karenga speak for them. (By the way, after getting out of prison he was hired as a professor at California State Long Beach. When are we going to stop funding left wing nuts at our public universities?) The churches ought to be particularly appalled since Karenga thought Christmas was a white religion and was trying to draw black people from it. Be on the lookout if a K-12 or college teacher tries to tell your children or grandchildren it’s a real holiday.

So Who Really Has Who In Chains?


So Who Really Has Who In Chains?

In another silly, ill-advised, racist misspeak by Vice President Joe Biden, Uncle Joe told a predominantly Black audience (in Ebonics no less) that a President Romney/Republican administration would put “Y’ALL back in chains.”

Since when did Joe Biden toss the Queen’s English overboard for slang? I know Obama is biracial and has a race card by default, but who gave Biden a race card?

[And as an aside just because one is biracial does not mean they should automatically get the coveted race card. We mixed folk ain’t all born into Black liberation!  But that discussion is for another time.]


Here is an interesting observation; Uncle Joe does not use altered dialect with whites or other groups. He does not speak much Spanish to Hispanic assemblies.  Why did he feel it was permissible to “get comfortable” when formally addressing African Americans?

Once again Negros get the back end of the donkey’s…..you know what I mean. We sat idly by while Obama scolded us and told us we were lazy and to take off our slippers. Now we allow a white man (with a history of racially cantankerous messages) to “jive talk” us? What next? Hills will resume her southern slang when she hits the stump? Why not just add black face and make it a real minstrel show! Go all out!

Outrage from African Americans, “hell to the naw!” in my “Madea” voice.

Black folk don’t usually utter a complaint when they perceive the messenger to be Democratic or of the left because they are always on “their side. Let that have been Romney or Ryan talkin’ chains, we would be talking about crucifixion times or what country to exile them for eternity!

We would not be side stepping this with a “birther” joke. And yes it was a joke. The same joke told by Leno, Kimmel, Fallon, Letterman, Maher, etc… All made the same type of birther joke, all white, and no one made a peep about racism then. So don’t come claiming it now! Unless, you are okay with being a hypocrite or Democratic shill, you can’t claim it to a logical thinking person ever!

If a racist act is a racist act, than it must always be a racist act not when it suits us or makes us feel better. Logic, simple logic. What is unacceptable for one white man must be unacceptable for all white men otherwise it looks self-serving and sheepish. Why do I feel like Mr. Spock could really be an asset right now? #LLAP!

With all that being said, here is an interesting article for us ponder about who really has us in chains.

If you see the light, you know that answer very well!  

Peace Family,

Preacher Says Biden and Democrats are the Ones Putting Black People in Chains

A pastor claims that Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks about Republicans putting black people in chains was not off the mark. But the twist is that the pastor himself believes that it’s the Democrats who have been seeking to keep people in chains, not the Republicans.

Rev. CL Bryant, who does not appear to be a very big fan of President Barack Obama, is one of the people behind the new documentary “Runaway Slave.” He says that the Democrats have been controlling black people for a very long time and kept them in slavery with social programs, pandering and taking their vote for granted.

“You’re already there!” said Bryant. “Chained to the highest unemployment rate, chained to debt, chained to a 40 percent abortion rate!”

Speaking in Virginia to a mostly African American audience, Biden said that the Republicans are going to “put y’all back in chains” by letting banks write their own rules.

The Republicans immediately fired back, stating that Biden has gone too far in his comments.

“After weeks of slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney, the Obama campaign has reached a new low,” Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul said in a statement. “The comments made by the Vice President of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama Campaign will say and do anything to win this election. President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”

Bryant feels that part of the reason that black people are suffering so much is because they pin too many of their hopes onto the Democratic Party.

“This is a reflection of the history of the Democratic party. Their hypocrisy toward blacks was reinforced by this statement made by VP Joe Biden when he used the party’s timeless tactic: fear,” Bryant said. “Just another attempt to enslave the vote of a people they have long taken for granted. Also that the VP from the east coast would say ‘Put chains on y’all’ is evidence of blatant, shameless and misguided pandering to Black folks.”

Connecticut Police Officers Charged with Violating Civil Rights of Latinos


Police Chief Len Gallo (left) and Mayor Joseph Maturo (right)

The police chief of East Haven, Connecticut has stepped down after four of his officers were arrested and charged with violating the rights of Latino citizens.

According to The LA Times, federal authorities began investigating East Haven police in 2009 after local activists said that police had used its power to abuse Latinos. Last December, the Department of Justice released what it found, saying there was a pattern of discrimination at the police department  during the period of Jan. 1, 2009, to Dec. 31, 2010.

According to the indictment, some of those patterns included the assault of individuals while they were handcuffed, unreasonable searches and seizures, and arresting and detaining without probable cause. One of the officers reportedly slapped a man handcuffed in his car, and another threw a man to the ground and kicked him while he was handcuffed.

The investigation also found 40% of all traffic stops by one officer involved Latinos. East Haven’s population of Latino drivers was about 8.3%  at the time.

The indictment also accuses unnamed union leaders of trying to block misconduct investigations.

Chief Len Gallo’s resignation was announced last Monday at a news conference, with Mayor Joseph Maturo reportedly saying he was putting together a search committee to find a replacement.

But wait, it gets better.

Right after federal officials announced charges against the four officers, the same mayor was asked by reporters, “What are you doing for the Latino community today?” He replied, “I might have tacos when I go home. I’m not quite sure yet.”

The governor spoke up in outrage soon after.

“The comments by East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo are repugnant,” the governor said in a statement. “They represent either a horrible lack of judgment or worse, an underlying insensitivity to our Latino community that is unacceptable. Being tired is no excuse. He owes an apology to the community, and more importantly, he needs to show what he’s going to do to repair the damage he’s done. And he needs to do it today.”

Maturo later issued an apology on a radio program. “It was stupid, it was insensitive and I gave my detractors … a reason to make matters worse with a ‘gotcha’ and an insensitive and stupid answer to something I should have never said,” Maturo said. “Unfortunately, I let the stress of the situation get the best of me and inflamed what is already a serious and unfortunate situation.”

 

What do you think punishment will be for the officers? Should the mayor step down also? Can police officers be coerced into such behavior by colleagues and employees or is this a willful choice? Will we all just get along ever?
