Mrs. Glenda Moore wasn't drunk. She wasn't high. She isn't a prostitute. She's a married black mother of two boys who were allowed to drown during the 2012 ravages of Hurricane Sandy. Her White neighbors rejected her maternal pleas, branded her a potential looter, thug.After [her] boys disappeared, Mrs Glenda Moore knocked on a nearby door for help but was told: 'I don't know you. I'm not going to help you.’ Mrs Moore then tried another neighbor near her Staten Island home, but when she rang the bell they turned off the lights and refused to answer. Her cousin Nancy Jean, 41, fought back tears as she described the ordeal. 'I can’t believe the way she was treated by the [Whites] she went to for help.
I'm sure Renisha McBride's family and friends wish she had received the same deaf ear; it seems likely that if Theodore Wafer had ignored her, she might still be alive. But his White manhood could not tolerate withdrawal from confrontation.
The summer of 2014 has seen a chorus of chatter on the problem of black masculinity. Ray Rice displaced O.J. Simpson as the embodiment of domestic abuse. White females were the vanguard in the effort to neuter and suspend Stephen A. Smith for suggesting that Rice and other male abusers might be provoked to violence. Former News 12 New Jersey reporter Sean Bergin proclaimed that the infinite pathologies plaguing black people are the result of shiftless black fathers. There have even been a sizable number of reports chastising black males' negligible interest in the murder trial of Renisha McBride in comparison to the historic and ongoing allure of Trayvon Martin.
Black males have much room for improvement. Domestic abuse is indefensible. But most black males' - non-white males and females globally - current concept of what a man is, what a man does, is based on our understanding and experience with the likes of Theodore Wafer, The Man.
I then examined certain other specific patterns of language used by Black males within the white supremacy culture. To begin with, Black males in particular, but also black females, refer to the white male as "The Man." Once this term "The Man" is thought or uttered, the brain computes that... the white male is "The Man," meaning logically "The only Man"... (Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, The Isis Papers pg. 120)
White Jesus, John Wayne, Justin Timberlake, Clint Eastwood, Charlton Heston, Superman, Elvis Presley or Theodore Wafer. Biblical or fictitious, gun-toting or hip-shaking, these White prototypes of manhood fortify White Supremacy and have contaminated the thoughts and behaviors of millions of black males.
Wafer also admits he was mad when he grabbed his shotgun that was in a closet, saying he didn't want to "cower" in his home and wasn't going to be a victim.President Barack Obama has been chided for nearly two full terms for shrinking from conflict, not being aggressive, man enough for the White House. He wasn't sufficiently angry in responding to the 2010 BP oil spill. He demonstrated "incompetence" and "ineptitude" as he slunk away from the hostilities in Syria. Sen. John McCain and a host of others have denounced him as a weakling for his handling of the conflict in Gaza, President Vladimir Putin and the non-white children leap-frogging the southern border.
The criticisms suggest that many Whites would prefer if the commander and chief were more like Dearborn Heights' own, Theodore Wafer. Our leader should look forward to the of sting battle. Wafer didn't waste time to locate his phone to solicit assistance, and he refused to be intimidated on his own property. He flexed his second amendment right to carry a big stick and invited Renisha McBride to make his day. McBride provoked him, "crossed the line" by descending unidentified upon his residence; his White manhood demanded maximum, lethal retaliation.
During cross examination, assistant prosecutor Athina Siringas said Wafer never told officers he was scared until they asked. "I had a lot of emotions, fear, panicking," Wafer said. "I guess in front of a cop I didn't want to come across as less of a man."Wafer has just ended the life of an unarmed nineteen-year-old female. Blasted bits of her head across his lawn. Yet his focus is on projecting the appropriate image of unflinching White masculinity.
Wafer's tear ducts worked overtime during his first day on the witness stand, but minutes after wiping McBride off the earth, he shed no tears. He informed officers that he was full of "piss and vinegar" and wanted to brandish his firearm to whom ever happened to be knocking at his door.
This is ethos of White masculinity. Wafer, Anthony Cumia, and Chicago's David Nicosia are contemporary manifestations of this barbaric tradition.
Nicosia told Judge Arnette Hubbard he wanted her to stop smoking outside a Chicago courthouse. The attorney says Nicosia called the 79-year-old judge “Rosa Parks” and spat in her face. A county sheriff’s spokeswoman said 55-year-old Nicosia walked away but Hubbard followed and confronted him. She said Nicosia spit on Hubbard again before slapping the judge’s face.White men are not to retreat or endure the impudence of a black female at any time - especially not at the ungodly hour of four in the morning. Any amount of physical force is justified - perhaps mandatory - to remind an uncouth or sassy negress like McBride or Dr. Ersula Ore that they are to always remember their place and never challenge the patriarch of White Supremacy.
But we could not have a global System of White Terrorism without the White matriarch.
All this got me thinking about privilege-denying, white supremacist-backing white women, and the tyranny they can cause when they don't get their way. These women like to have it both ways: sit upon their pedestal and look down with resentment upon people of color and, when it suits them, jump off their pedestal and claim that if we dismantle sexism, other forms of oppression will crumble. These same women will decry the persistence of sexism/misogyny, but deny they are complicit in white [supremacy] that oppresses people of color on a totally different level...White Women have demonstrated immense power over the last year. They rallied around Texas State Senator Wendy Davis and have her poised to challenge for governorship. They were integral in weaving the false narrative about Isla Vista suspected murderer Elliot Rodger; the #YesAllWomen campaign reduced him to a vessel of misogyny and undiluted evil. They used the firing of former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson to insist that their oppression is on par with Harriet Jacobs and other oppressed non-whites.
White women were a critical component in the Trayvon Martin murder trial, and they are equally pivotal in the McBride murder case; the judge, and defense attorney are both White females in McBride's trial - two of the jurors are as well.
Where were these pale allies when Rachel Jeantel was being lampooned and blamed during the court case of 2013? Where were our melanin deficient sisters when First Lady Michele Obama was being heckled by a White female member of Code Pink? Where have they been for the duration of the Renisha McBride proceedings? Does #YesAllWomen include melanin dominant females?
"The sound in the front was louder than the sound on the side and there was something slapping the window," he said. "The floor was vibrating from the banging on the doors."An overworked White Supremacist trope is that black people are superhuman creatures, capable of extraordinary feats of physical force. Black females are habitually lauded for being reservoirs of strength, incapable of submission. Consequently, they're most often denied the delicacy and fragility that White females elicit reflexively. According to Mr. Wafer, McBride was fixin' to huff and puff and blow his house away. Of course he had no recourse; he had to defend his property and life and annihilating
Prosecutors then played a video of Wafer being questioned by an investigator at the police department, where he sips on something they've given him to drink and does not appear to be emotional. Police told him the person he shot and killed was young. And, at times, Wafer refers to the person he shot as "IT."It. Ain't I a human? Absolutely not. One would think our White sisters in arms would be equally appalled by this commentary and attacking Wafer with the same conviction and venom they aimed at Stephen A. Smith. White feminists have been mum on McBride. A teenage black female talked about as an inanimate object. A thing. "It." A hefty number of Whites would not permit a fetus to be described in such terms.
Numerous witnesses have testified over the course of the trial that a mere $56 dollars had been recovered from Renisha’s body. On the audio recording, however, police officers can be heard noting that a $100 bill had been found on her person, leading to one officer responding “No kidding?” This in turn led to a discussion on the officers’ part as to whether McBride had been working as a prostitute and had been seeking to collect money owed.Michelle Beadle where are you? Sandra Fluke where are you? Calling any and all White feminists. Just because a black female has a Franklin in her pocket, she's a whore? President Obama proudly penned the Lilly Ledbetter Act in 2009. Why not pay it forward in supporting an unarmed, black, teenage female gunned down and suspected of being a hooker? #YesAllWomen declared that this sexist world cultivates exploitation and violence against woman with token punishments if any. Why hasn't McBride's murder and subsequent verbal demeaning produced indignant White feminist comrades?
Where has justice gone when we can’t protect ourselves or our property? What message is our “justice” system sending? The jurors just gave permission to [Breaking and Entering] to every thug out there. So sad.This is Racist Suspect Michelle Roose Walter's response to Theodore Wafer being found guilty of second degree murder for McBride's death. Walter sounds like a kindred spirit of Charlton Heston, former NRA President and star of Planet of The Apes. In the Context of White Supremacy, termination of black life is always supposed to be a rational, just and non-punishable act. White life, White property and White rule are infinitely, eternally superior to a billion Renisha McBrides or Glenda Moores.
Syreeta McFadden remarked, "Only in America can a dead black [teen] go on trial for his [or her] own murder." Under the System of White Supremacy, the injustice is that Trayvon Martin and McBride can't be exhumed and convicted for being black and likely thugs.
