An Inconsistency...

The Victim of White Supremacy known as Desmond Tutu recently advocated the "threat" of violence against the non-white individual known as Robert Mugabe. Tutu - the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize winner - is internationally renowned for his dedication to non-violence. Particularly his non-violent approach to combating the so called system of apartheid [aka White Supremacy].

I don't have a criticism of Mr. Tutu. I'm simply noting an inconsistency:

Here in Harlem, where there are probably more black people concentrated than any place in the world, some talk that non-violent talk too. But we find that they aren't non-violent with each other. You can go out to Harlem Hospital, where there are more black patients than any other hospital in the world, and see them going in there all cut up and shot up and busted up. Where they got violent with each other. My experience has been that in many instances where you find negroes talking about non-violence they are not non-violent with each other, and they are not loving with each other, or forgiving with each other. Usually when they say they're non-violent they mean non-violent with somebody else. They are non-violent with the enemy. A person come to your home, and if he's White and wants to heap some kind of brutality on you, you're non-violent. But if another NEGRO just stomps his foot, you'll rumble with him in a minute. Which shows you that there is an inconsistency...

"Mind Now Whatchu Say..."

What's good Victims of White Supremacy {VOWS} and Admitted/Suspected Racist? In a recent exchange of views, I stated that the process of combating Racism/White Supremacy (WHITE PEOPLE) and establishing Justice is predominantly about WORDS. Knowing what to say AND what not to say. I have observed that even as White people of the northwestern hemisphere stockpile firearms at an astronomic - dare I say, Extinction Level Event - rate in the wake of Mr. Obama's victory, the one thing they amass at a greater rate than munitions... is WORDS. If you recall, non-whites could be executed for reading during earlier periods of "American" history. White people overstand the potency of the pen.

So, a receptive Victim of Racism says, "Give me an example... this needs to be tangible to me!" I says, "No problem." I'll construct a list of terms non-whites should avoid. A second VOWS says, "If you make that list, I'd like to see a copy." Wow, I got two Victims of Racism requesting counter-racist suggestions. No time for lollygagging.


People of Color


I'll share my view on what is incorrect about a portion of these terms; I'll leave the remainder for you to "chew on".
  • Other: An intoxicated White man approached me - double YIKES! I knew the gentlemen, but I mean... this is White Supremacy! He explained that he recently got glasses and now recognized the trauma of being the other. The other what? The other Suspected Racist? The Other Side of Town? (Curtis can tell you about the non-white side of town). The System of Racism obliterates and confounds non-whites with convoluted and indirect speech. I ain't never heard nobody say, "Other than White". That's a lil' too honest, reveals a lil' too much about the Racist environment in which we exist. Non-whites should discontinue the use of this phrase AND question anyone who uses it. Make them announce exactly who they are referencing when they say other.
  • Minority: This is an excellent example of how words shape comprehension and perceptions of the world. Non-whites - 90% of the global population - are trained to reference themselves as MINORities. On a subconscious level this conditions non-whites to devalue themselves and their mistreatment, to perceive themselves as an outnumbered, niggardly* faction within an American Democracy where the majority[WHITE PEOPLE] rules. It would be most accurate to say that the overwhelming majority of the individuals in the known universe are classified as non-white and exist within a global System of White Supremacy - established, maintained, expanded and refined by less than ten percent of the global population who classify themselves as WHITE. [*niggardly - less plentiful than what is normal, necessary, or desirable; meager]
  • Half-White: The Victim of White Supremacy known as Queen P has dialoged with me and defended the use of Half-White for some time. I felt I could never adequately express what was incorrect about this term. As usual, I was missing the obvious. In the context of White Supremacy, exactly what does it mean to be WHITE? This is a critical question that every Victim of Racism should answer; and they should make certain to ask a plethora of White people to break this down for them. I guarantee it'll be a memorable experience each time you ask a White person to specify what it means to be White - make sure you ask them if they are White first. Cause I mean, you gotta know what it means to be White, if you know you are White, right? Once you grasp what it means to be White, the inaccuracy of the term Half-White will be obvious.
  • Ethnic: June, 2008. Spring quarter comes to a close at the University of Washington. I bumped into a non-white student en route to submitting their final. She was finishing up a course in American Ethnic Studies. I says, "You just completed a quarter of exploration in the department of Ethnic Studies. What does 'ethnic' mean?" The student had no idea. I asked if this was problematic? She concurred and invited me to ask some of her classmates. We asked students and Teaching Assistants... no one knew what "ethnic" meant. Until... we bumped into a queen, a White woman. "What does ethnic mean?" She said - without hesitation, "non-white." Thank you for clearing this up oh, enchanted, fair maiden. Let's just stick with non-white to minimize confusion.
  • African-American: I've actually had a White woman get angry with me because I decried the use of the term African-American. "Malcolm X coined that term... your roots to the Motherland... Ubuntu... Ali Bumaye!" I suspect this White woman - Georgia Roberts - has had sexual intercourse with non-whites [state side and the Motherland]. Next time I see her, I'll ask for her view on whether Charlize Theron is African-American. Theron, born in Benoni, South Africa, became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 2007 - and she speaks Xhosa. She may have a better claim to the term than I. I ain't put a toe down no where near Africa and can barely speak English - as you can see. Oh yeah, talking 'bout White women got me distracted. What are the qualifications for being African-American? And what do the terms African and American mean?
  • People of Color: White people and non-whites alike got a vice grip on this term. Major difference? Many White people have an elaborate understanding of this phrase & how it supports the System of White Supremacy. Non-whites - as usual - display our victimization, i.e., our deficiencies in comprehension. And I got counter-racist case studies to bolster my view! The admitted White Supremacist known as Rebecca Aanerud (206.221.0710) defended her use of People of Color. Aanerud said that substituting Non-White for People of Color, gives the impression that White is the norm, the standard of judgement; that anything not white is some how deviant. Codified, A+ response? "Ms. Aanerud, in a System of White Supremacy, is that true?" "Well... erh.... uh.... ummm.... Yes, but..." Thank you Ms. Aanerud; no further questions. Non-whites who defend this phrase, didn't comment on semantics or what truths and information the term "People of Color" conveys. They explained that "People of Color" was birthed in the struggle for liberation, and that the use of the term is an homage to blood shed and lives lost. Malcolm and C. L. R. James used this term, so it most certainly should be carried forward and enunciated with dignity. Translation: we're doing this because we've always done this. Hallmark victimization, niggardly thinking (glance back at that definition).

Words are tools, weapons not accessories. Speech is not a Malcolm X cap or a dashiki - a catch-phrase or garment brandished to impress, imitate truth. Speech is the verbalization of accurate information. This is done by precision crafted selection and deletion of words that reveal or conceal truth. The best evidence that non-whites are retarded by the System of Racism, is our collective failure to communicate.

It is said that the [non-white] loves to
jabber; in my own case, when I think of
the word jabber I see a gay group of children
calling and shouting for the sake of calling
and shouting - children in the midst of play,
to the degree to which play can be
considered an [imitation of ]... life.
The [non-white] loves to jabber, and
from this... leads to a new proposition:
The [non-white] is just a child. [Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Mask pg. 26]
Children are careless with words. Elementary school teachers remind tikes to refrain from using words if they do not know what they mean. Why? Because most likely they do not know what they are saying. Any words that you cannot define in a simple to understand manner should be added to the above list. Words transport your thoughts and feelings to the world. You don't choose words based on how they sound or because other people use the them. You select words that best convey your meaning. Communication is reduced to incoherent babble when the spoken/heard words are not understood. And many of the terms used in discussions of Racism ARE NOT CLEAR. And if you don't believe it... break out a pen and pad and see if you got simple, easy to grasp definitions for every term listed above (Start with post-racial).

Non-whites - Victims of White Supremacy - scamper about calling words without meaning, easily fascinated, manipulated by sounds. I have been - and often still am - guilty of this myself. And I place culpability on the White people who practice Racism.
Admitted White Supremacist David Allen stated, "We speak the language of White Supremacy." Meaning, the tools we use to connect with everything and everyone, the linguistic framework which defines our world, our lives, has been engineered to support the mistreatment of non-whites. White Supremacists make a concerted effort to use words that do not reflect truth about their criminal system; their primary activity is deceiving non-whites, and they flourish in doing so. Non-whites are literally being smothered by language that diverts attention from and/or promotes the system of Racism. I believe the terms above exemplify this - and there are others!

The late, great Negro author, James Baldwin, wrote, "The Victim who is able to articulate the situation of the victim has ceased to be a victim: he or she has become a threat."
To make it plain. As a Victim of Racism, you threaten the System of White Supremacy - and support the establishment of Justice - by telling your story well. The use of words that efficiently, accurately reveal truth and articulate your mistreatment, are ruinous to a system founded on lies. The terms listed above do not threaten the System of White Supremacy. All non-whites, all opponents of Racism, should dedicate themselves to fashioning words and meanings that expose Racists and their activities.
We should all be using the best words possible to snitch on White people!

The Misunderstanding of Racism Part I

If you do not understand White Supremacy (Racism) - what it is, and how it works, everything else that you understand, will only confuse you.
- Neely Fuller, Jr.

To clarify, my definition of Racism/White Supremacy is:

A global system of people who classify themselves as "White" and are dedicated to mistreating/subjugating everyone they classify as not "White" for their (White people's) benefit.

I am a miseducated victim of White Supremacy. My ignorance is a principle aspect of my molestation under the system of Racism/White Supremacy. I am neither qualified nor motivated to admonish any non-white individual. I'm on the bottom of the slave ship too.

But acknowledging deficiencies is necessary. My own and those of the non-white collective - of which I am a member.

The non-whites of the known universe have displayed a stripper-skimpy comprehension of Racism/White Supremacy, which we have been subject to, tormented by for some time. Not gonna' waste time defending this statement. I'll just challenge anyone to find a non-white person who can truthfully say that they have never, don't ever encounter mistreatment on the basis of color. Should you find that individual, stop reading and put me and as many non-whites as possible in contact with this most special person.

That's what I thought. Movin' on...

Non-whites - including myself - continually evidence their minuscule grasp of White Supremacy. Por favor, examine the following statement from a victim of racism:

Whites are much smarter than non-whites but that does not mean that every white is smarter than every non-white or that every white is smart.
This statement may be true. However, finding one or eight White people, who happen to be less "intelligent" then a handful of non-whites, in no way negates the universal system of White Domination. In fact, should you find a "not-so-smart" White person, you'll get an opportunity to observe the terrifying brilliance of Racism.

Many White people have voiced
misgivings about the "intellect" of Mr. George W. Bush. I've had my own doubts. But last I checked, Mr. Bush is the forty-third President of the United States. For all his reported cerebral shortcomings, he triumphed in the contested 2000 presidential election, invaded the area of the world known as Iraq and got around to New Orleans when he felt like it. Mr. Bush has shown the ability to do what he wants, and no one has shown themselves capable of stopping him. That's smart.

Mr. Bush's proficiency is very much related to his access to information, individuals, locations... a staggering system of resources.

At its core, White Supremacy is about the White collective's ability to function in an organized, codified manner for the benefit of the entire unit.
White people are effective individually because they are effective collectively; non-white people are ineffective individually because they are ineffective collectively.

Marinate on that last sentence. Let's stick with Mr. Bush to illustrate the logic of this statement. Mr. Bush's grandfather - Prescott Bush - was a US Senator. Mr. Bush's father - George H. W. Bush - was a two term Vice President, a one term President and former director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Mr. Bush's brother, Jeb Bush, is the former Governor of Florida - remember all those ballot problems in the 2000 election? Mr. Bush's immediate family is a gaudy
global network.

Compare this to a "smart" victim of racism. We'll take Mr. Malcolm X. His father - Earl Little - died under suspicious circumstances when Malcolm was only thirteen. Malcolm's mother - Louise Little - was the offspring of a White man raping a non-white woman; Mrs. Little was later declared insane and institutionalized for twenty-six years. Consequently, Malcolm and his orphaned siblings were parcelled out to various foster homes. This is not a system of resources. This is a menagerie of trauma.

Would a sports metaphor work better? Think Kevin Garnett. Minnesota Timberwolves are the non-white team. Boston Celtics, the White team. In Minnesota, Garnett had no help. Individually, phenomenal player. But the ineptitude of the team retarded Garnett's ability to thrive. But with the Celtics... Paul Pierce and Ray Allen provided the much needed system of resources. When Garnett finally acquired a competent and capable cadre, the collective success amplified Garnett's individual achievement.

It takes a village... Sadly, White Supremacy is the only village, community, co-op or collective in the known universe. The Racists flood, gentrify, deport and Manifest Destiny non-whites at will. And they excel at this because they function as a cohesive network of people, unified around preserving:



Bottom Line? Smart and not-smart White people are the "top of the line". All the non-whites are below the line, back of the bus, bottom of the boat.

Ouch. That smarts.

Part II...

Exactly what do you mean when you say "smart"?

Obama... Extinction Level Event?

Many, many years ago - about a half score (1998). In a galaxy still dominated by Racism/White Supremacy. I read an article on Busta Rhymes. He discussed the film Deep Impact (1998). Specifically, he spoke about Morgan Freeman's role as President of the United States in the context of the planet being under the threat of obliteration. Bus-A-Bus felt this was an illustration of Racism/White Supremacy. In fact, he said it was as if the Racists were saying: "Look here nigga. The world is coming to an end, and it's your job to announce it. Now, get out there and tell 'em it's all over, nigga." The fact that a negro was commander-in-chief only heightened the apocalyptic nature of the film.

At the time, I wasn't intensely focused on White Supremacy - would have loved to snuggle with a pert blond. But this article stuck with me; Busta's view had a deep impact. The foundation had been laid for associating Armageddon-like catastrophe with a negro in the Oval Office.

Hold up, Hold up. Armageddon (1998) came out at the exact same time as Deep Impact. Same film basically; A big rock from space is gonna smash us! We're all gonna die! Big difference? White president in Armageddon. How does this play out in the two films? The White president and his staff solve problems. They gather constructive information and the most knowledgeable White people from across the globe to produce a course of action. They destroy the asteroid and celebrate the awesomeness of the White team. In Deep Impact... the non-white president's efforts to avert catastrophe fail miserably, and they resort to hiding a handful of - mostly White - folks in underground caves. The comet barrels into Earth. The Eastern seaboard and a few million folks are wiped out. Quite a contrast.]

...And along came Mr. Obama. University of Washington's Chair of Women Studies and admitted White Supremacist,
David Allen, has stated that anything that makes White people happy, should make non-whites highly suspicious. The abundance of zealous White people sporting t-shirts and bumper stickers to promote Mr. Obama and an unspecified change, has not Replaced White Supremacy With Justice. As such... I assume these White people have every intention of continuing the global enterprise of mistreating non-whites throughout the known universe.

And photos like this only amplify my suspicions that the White people of the northwestern hemisphere are gearing up for another round of Blame The Black Man. [Click to check out the website where I found this pic; there are more like this.] Charles Stuart. Susan Smith. Willie Horton. The Scottsboro Boys. 9/11. Even during financial paucity, there's always a wealth of condemnation and accusations to be dolled out on non-white males.

Blame The Black Man is especially brutal when the victim was once beloved by White people. OJ Simpson. In '92 he had it all. Hefty bank account, petite White woman and a Hollywood career. By 1994... the juice was the race card - the emblem of White people's disgust for any non-white person who attributes their troubles to Racism. Michael Jackson. 1984 he was moon walking Brooke Shields to the Grammys. By 2004, he was on the verge of trading in Neverland for San Quentin. Martin Luther King, Jr. In 1964, the reigning Time magazine Man of the Year had a Nobel Prize in his pocket and was the certified, undisputed dignified negro. After one too many comments about the violence against non-whites in the area of the world known as Vietnam... he was reduced to just nigger.

The cemeteries and prisons are bloated with case histories of non-white victims of the - frequently unsubstantiated - indictments of White folks. Mack Charles Parker. Geranimo Pratt. Marcus Garvey. Michael Vick. Paul Robeson. And I fear Mr. Obama is next in line. If elected, an economic Chernobyl will greet him. And there just ain't a good track record for White people being patient and understanding with black males during hard times - or Good Times.

This is a matter of record. Exhibit A: The post Civil War period known as Reconstruction. Liberated(?) negroes were permitted to hold political offices throughout the former Confederacy. White people did not support their popularly elected non-white officials. White people did not revel in the hard fought pursuit of the democratic principles on which this so called nation was established. White people were infuriated. And when White people get cross... they get busy. They organized, channeled their hostility in a most brutal and potent manner. And then made Birth of a Nation (1915) to commemorate the heroism of the Klan for posterity.

Global system. White people don't solely target non-whites in this area of the world. The exact same thing happened in the area of the world known as Germany. Hitler and the gang were reeling from a combat loss just like the White Confederates. German White people were disgruntled. What did they do? They galvanized around the most powerful motivating force in the known universe. White Supremacy. So called "Jews" were classified as non-white, and The Third Reich was proud to announce their world view:
All really significant symptoms of decay... can in the last analysis be reduced to racial causes. Whether we consider questions of general justice or cankers of economic life, symptoms of cultural decline or processes of political degeneration, questions of faulty schooling or the bad influence exerted on grown-ups by the press, etc., everywhere and always it is fundamentally the disregard of the racial needs of our own people or failure to see a foreign racial menace.
[Adolf Hitler
Mein Kampf pg. 328]
Catch Shindler's List (1993) if you're unfamiliar with what happens when the White Supremacists concentrate on a perceived non-white hazard.

And when the Racists' launch their offensive, rest assured that the
mongrelization of the "great race" will be a primary complaint. An everlasting White Supremacists' rallying cry is a perceived(imagined/fabricated) threat to the chaste and fragile White Queen. I strongly suspect that Mr. Obama being the offspring of a White/non-white marriage, will fuel the animosity of many White people. It's been a consistent topic throughout his campaign.

I feel your disbelief. A great many non-whites along with hordes of White people[Suspected Racists] will shout, "t'ain't so!" "Barack Obama's candidacy illustrates the demise of bigotry and discrimination. In the post-racial era, candidates and civilians alike will be judged on character, not color." Sounds delightful. And I wanna believe. But the greatest pathology in the world, is to believe in something just because you wish it to be so. The overwhelming evidence shows that we live in a global system of Racism/White Supremacy. And as a non-white/victim of racism, it is my duty to adjust my thoughts, speech, actions and expectations accordingly.

My intent is not to dissuade anyone from voting for Obama - by all means support him. But rather, to make certain that no one equates having a non-white residing in the White House with the end of the empire of Racism/White Supremacy. In fact, I suspect the White Supremacist's anticipate that a multitude of non-whites will view an Obama victory as a death knoll for Racism; they will consequently be blind, deaf, distracted sitting...
victims of racism. As if the White Supremacists need any further advantages.

I already see this strategy at work. A victim of racism(VOR) was being accosted in a California airport by a Suspected White Supremacist. In codified fashion, he told her that he felt he was being mistreated because he was not White. Her response? "Why, I never! I support Barack Obama. How could i possibly be a Racist?" The slam dunk non-white reply: "
Can a White person support Barack Obama AND practice White Supremacy?" [you can submit your answer in the above survey.] In predictable White Supremacist fashion, the Suspected Racist declined to answer the question and exited abruptly - to attend an Obama fundraiser no doubt.

All victims of racism should assume that White people can AND WILL support Mr. Obama while remaining
steadfast accomplices in the global White Supremacy cartel. All non-whites should suspect that any White person who backs Mr. Obama, is doing so with Racist intent. As long as the system of White Supremacy exists, victims of racism have no reason to think otherwise.

This system is designed and dedicated to abusing individuals classified as non-white - and to manipulate non-whites into assisting in their own demise. On this basis, when I see
droves of White people endorsing and singing the praises of Mr. Obama... I'm leery. Non-whites exist within razor narrow margins that White people change with ease. "Obama" becomes "Osama" with the flick of a letter. For non-whites, there's a microscopic line between the love and hate of White people, and non-whites are never far from their bad side.

Which is why - with great regret, I expect cataclysmic disaster. I hope I'm wrong. But should Obama be victorious, I will not be the least be surprised if we end up singing that same ol'
Sob Story.

It's just another case of that old Racism (White Supremacy).
