Sadly Its True The Good Die Young – The Sudden Leaving of The Great Taki Raton


I was very saddened to learn today that my friend Taki Raton – Black Milwaukee’s greatest champion of independent Black education and curriculum geared specifically for Black / African Americans youth and young adults transition this life to the afterlife in the realist of terms.

It is said and believed by many of humanity that the human spirit dies with the flesh after that “last dance,” called death. But nature and its ecological systems, including the stars in known solar systems in the universe teaches humanity that energy never ends, but it only transforms into something else. Sometimes seen but mostly unseen when concerning human beliefs about death.

Memories of those that love Taki Raton will never forget him. He lives on in our minds. Those that worked side by side with Taki Raton will forever remember him for his dedicated advocacy in uplifting positive events in the Black American Experience and our struggles for our race unity.

His work ethics will live on in the too many to count published news articles, delivered speeches and presentation, hosted cultural seminars and written education curriculums he professionally completed.

Taki Raton if no one said it while you were present with us, I said it now – Job Well Done Brother. A true, humble and loyal Black scholar that you are.

You will always be remembered by Milwaukee’s Black Community – Your spirit will never die Taki Raton.

I humbly submit this writing is incomplete mentioning all the great achievements of Taki Raton mission here in Milwaukee, but please fill free to write in the comment section what you believe deserves mention about the life of Taki Raton…

Black People Have Been Slapped Down By the American Society…What Will it Take A Beat Down…Before Black People Unite Together


I am of the opinion it is going to take a beat down instead of the “slap down” to get this message across to Black Americans. Example, our recent societal focus on Black incarceration rates, drug dealings / use, and cops killing unarmed Black men has been constantly occurring events in Black communities the past 50 years. Yet we continue to feed the hand that slaps us.

Yet overall, Black Americans have yet to unify together to oppose the ill forces our communities suffer disproportionately.

It is like living in a house with cockroaches, but no one living in the house steps on the pest to eliminate its habitation in the house.

Black people continue to plead to government and its social agencies to solve these issues. Instead of taking, the rings of accountability and responsibility to alter / reduce the course of these social traps that also affect other non-Blacks in our society.

Yet non-Black people manage well together in pooling their resources together cooperatively which lessen the impact of social ills in their communities.

Just maybe Black Americans need to accept who they are (Black Americans) instead of believing they are part of other people’s identities.

{I personally, adopted what considered a Muslim last name, to replace my father father’s x slave father adopted European / White person surname. My personal name change declaration does not dismiss my race identity as a Black man. On the contrary, it reaffirms my race lands (Africa) origins, which surnames naturally accomplish in the eyes of humanity.  Surnames originating on the African continent, not the European continent signifies the Black race. I am not a White man so why should I rationally continue carrying a White man surname. It just made rational sense to me to change my name when I claimed the stolen identity of my Black slave fore parents.} 

Black Americans have a unique identity but many of us deny its realness or authenticity due to the perceived negative construct of race identity in America great social experiment.

Black Wall Streets that use to exist across America are just reminders of any race natural human social order and social paths. We / our group turned its back on, to counter American societal racist tactics to appease government forces and ultimately the dominant ruling members of the American society.

Whereas a continuance of establishing Black Wall Street’s wherever x slaves migrated or relocated after the American Civil War ended would have ensured advancement and prosperity other races and ethnic groups immigrant fore parents have pasted down to their children since migrating to America to become American citizens.

The children of White, Red, Brown, and Yellow Americans accept without question who they are. This social norm unites them in the field of economics and gives them social advantages they all share, excluding the Black man and woman here in America.

There Are No Black Traitors in Our Midst Just Confused Blacks Believing in Lies That Blinds the True Reality of Race Matters


Alfonzo_R_image

It is sick and sad members of our community have developed no empathy for police officer’s, involved in shooting unarmed Black people, but it’s a natural feeling of non-sympathy resulting from White aggression against too many Black Americans. White aggression reduces our community high levels of non-sympathy for police officers scared of, and hate Black youth. 


Police officers looking for any meet with Black youth / men / women to exercise and carry out their power to use deadly force against unarmed Black people do not deserve our community sympathy. These type of brutal and beastly police do not think twice about unloading hot lead from their pistols in the living souls manifested in Black skin. 

I do not view the likes of Alfonso under racist derogatory terms, which intend to reduce Blacks humanity in the minds of other race / ethnic groups competing with the Black Race. 

Alfonso like far too many other Black Americans and Africans living back in our homelands, simply are not race loyal. Unaware that Black people, simply are despised and hated because of our dark complexions of our skin tones and shades, and more importantly races other than the Black race, realize race unity is powerful when competing for limited social resources in any given society.

Race loyalty bounds the group to compete fairly and equitably against other races, as designed by the force of natural human creation. 

Black people on the planet simply need to wake up from accepting the lies and deceit about race matters. Race is a pre-ordain reality of life. Not to accept this fact will result in continue White aggression / oppression of our Black race.

Honesty Is Missing In America Race Discourse (The N-Word)


Honestly and truthfully, it is hypocritical and bias for the American media reporting the outraged over a single White woman Mom Beauton Gilbow. Viewed in a suspected video participating in a sing along to a Black Rap Artist hit song which is an Explicitly Dumb-Found Negro,” uses the n-word, not to mention well-known other rap artist uses as a chorus line / hook. People are reacting as though today’s White and Black youth are immune from American Racism and its institutionalized behaviors and grotesque practice denying equal access in the society to Black Americans.

On the other side of this issue too many Black American use the n-word like drinking Kool-Aid in the hood on hot summer days.

Black Americans on the other hand of the effects of racism justify use of, and condone Blacks ‘seemingly’ the privilege of using the n-word as a term of endearment be allowed exclusive use of the n-word in the American society and world for that matter.

This linguistic degenerative metamorphosis (n-word) into Black American culture is a phenomenon in the human family. Possibly no other enslaved race, or group in the history of the human family is known to adopted and endear slave master’s derogatory titles place on his or her group after freedom was given. The phenomenon more importantly, testifies to the psychological damage American Institutionalize Racism obviously has caused on too many descendants of American Black / African slaves, and free Black men and women during institutionalized slavery times.

A1-typical hypocrisy of modern-day Black men and women that profess cultural / race Blackness but follow in the linguistic traditions of days gone when slave traders and slave-masters reduced enslaved Black Africans to the level of “beast of burden.”

The American society which for the most part guided by the power and influence of the mass-media complex was serious about exposing and eliminating institutional racism it would condemn all social mechanisms of it practiced by all members and institutions of the American society. The Rap music industry endorses the n-word in much of its lyrical content, as an art form of expression. I ask who, what and why, racist behavior and beliefs are responsible for today’s continue use of the n-word? I really don’t have an authoritative answer and maybe our society will find sole responsibility for the present day use of the n-word by too many Black Americans in private and public circles.

Resolving social racism and its continue practices in the American society will never end by pointing fingers at racist mechanism when they come to light in view of the public eye of scrutiny, nor by ignoring the irrational use of the n-word by members of our society which the word devised intentions was to demise.

President Obama Exorcism of Reaganism


Many ordinary republicans like ordinary democrats have “political short term memory issues” that their perspective elected political leadership depend on to stay publicly employed, election season after election season. The only way to reduce or eliminate this abuse of power is to limit Congressional terms of office in line with US Presidential term limits. Both Democrats and Republicans supported the “Bush Wars.” Do anyone recall G.W. Bush proclamation; “He (Saddam) tried to kill my daddy,”  http://edition.cnn.com/2002/ALLPOLITICS/09/27/bush.war.talk/.

Not one congressional leader suggested G.W. Bush undergo psychological treatment to determine if he was mentally fit to lead the America people, anywhere, let alone into War.

At that time (September 2002), I considered this statement by G.W. Bush the greatest political “Freudian Slip,” in public by a sitting American President. More importantly it signaled the building wave of resentment against Reaganism leadership in American government. G.W. Bush sub-conscience public outcry for vengeance was the break in the grip Reaganism had on Capitol Hill, which ushered in the exorcist and his administration, President Obama (More about ideology exoticism can be found at, http://www.college.columbia.edu/cct/sep_oct09/columbia_forum 

As I have alluded in many past social threads in straightforward terms in my personal online blogs; White republican / Conservatives, high and low, have a problem with its 44th / 45th President skin color, it’s that simple people.

Furthermore, how can anyone forget the GOP / Tea Party Declaration, roughly six years six months ago: To do all in its power to discredit President Obama Administration and policy initiatives. Well conservatism and all its variants (Tea Party tactic) have failed to revive the age of Reaganism even with their racial divide rhetoric which all Americans know, but too many deny, is the biggest thorn in America history.

Democratic conservatives and Republican conservatives holding onto Reaganism and or its revival need to be removed by their perspective constituents. Liberals need to be thoroughly vented or tweaked to truly reveal if they are in line with realism and idealism cooperative politics introduced to America, by President Obama and his Administration actions.

Details of this new political reality replacing America “old boy” domestic and foreign politics / policies is revealed by President Obama in an interview with VOX @ http://www.vox.com/a/barack-obama-interview-vox-conversation/obama-foreign-policy-transcript
