It's Spring again... Beautiful day in the Pacific northwest. Sun is shining. The weather is sweet. I thought I would take a moment to soak in some Vitamin D, rest my eyes - a l'il yard time in the Prison of White Supremacy.
White people are out in great numbers. Playing tennis. Tossing the frisbee. Volleyball. I witnessed a congregation of White folks out in the grass. They weren't yelling obscenities. No brawls. They were having a grand ol' time.
As I lay in the grass, I was thinking large groups of black people don't
do this. Come together in a harmonious exchange, good-natured frolicking and fellowship. Large numbers of Negroes tends to produce mo' beef then a cattle ranch. And we evidence this perpetually. The black church ain't even tranquil - I done observed more than my fair share of static about what happened at the deacon board meeting or what sister Johnson said to deacon Anderson. The System of White Supremacy conditions non-whites to have abject contempt for other non-whites. Black feuds have become legendary; the stuff of Hollywood epics and folk lore - this could easily fill up a week of Black History Month.
Booker T Washington vs W.E.B. DuBouis
Malcolm X vs Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Black Panther Party vs The United Slaves
2Pac vs Biggie Smalls
LL Cool J vs Kool Moe Dee
Hutus vs Tutsis
The Bloods vs The Crips
But I caught myself.
I'm just supporting the White man's stereotype's. Not every black gathering results in a melee and yellow tape. Most of us try to be sensible and respectful. Marcus Garvey said...
"Stop acting like a bitch... Yeah, I called you a bitch cause that's how you acting."
I thought my ears were deceiving me. This fusillade of scorn was so out of place with the tranquility of the sunny afternoon. And I hadn't seen any black people around, so I was stunned as to whom could be saying this.
"You niggas be cutting me off, and that's what bitches do. Now get the fuck away from my car."
To my dismay... black people arrived. And with an inhospitable entrance to boot. They exited quickly; I took a deep breath and returned to my solitude - the polite banter of the nearby Suspected Racists like rain on a tin roof, soothing. But I make sure I remember whom is to blame for the conduct of all non-white people in the known universe. WHITE PEOPLE. Specifically, the White people who participate in the System of White Supremacy. They are most responsible for any and everything that happens on this planet with regards to people - and most certainly with regards to the loathsome manner in which non-whites relate to each other. Our behavior is a direct reflection of our suffering .
I know we are capable of more, and many of us desire to see all non-white people functioning to the best of their abilities. Replacing White Supremacy With Justice is the only thing that will allow for this to happen. But in the mean time in between time... might be helpful to minimize/avoid contact with non-whites.
Absence makes the heart grow stronger.
Can't have an argument with someone you don't talk to.

business: serious activity requiring time and effort and usually the avoidance of distractions
The word BUSINESS is said 48 times in the original Godfather; that's about once every three and a half minutes in a three hour film. It's been my observation that many Victims of White Supremacy adore the Corleone saga. Cool & the gang. Let's use Mario Puzo's masterpiece to aid our counter-racist effort.
Vito Corleone: I thought - Santino - was a bad Don, rest in peace.
This pint-size line reveals much about the importance of honesty in operating a successful business. Vito Corleone was able to speak candidly about his slain son's ineptitude in heading the family enterprise. He does not allow grief to embellish Sonny as a tactician, a poised leader of men. Vito Corleone keeps it real! I love and miss my son, but he was bad for business.
Why was Sonny bad for business? Emotional. Impulsive. Inconsiderate. Rash. Short-tempered. Sleeping around on his wife at his sister's wedding, his savage, public assault on his brother-in-law or his insatiable desire to do battle with the Five Families. Sonny displays a persistent and debilitating lack of self-control - his Achilles heal for sure. Restraint is critical to succeeding in business.
Victims of White Supremacy are no-seat-belt-door-open-pants-unbuttoned UNRESTRAINED in how we deal with Racism/White Supremacy - for the most part. We ready throw hands if a White person calls us nigger. Teary eyed if a Suspected/Admitted Racist apologies for the mistreatment of non-white people. Our responses to the System of Racism are saturated in emotions which frequently obstruct our ability to make sensible decisions.
Virgil "The Turk" Sollozzo: I hope you're not a hothead like your brother Sonny. You can't talk business with him...
The unchecked emotions of non-whites frequently obliterates our ability engage in constructive dialogue on the business of counter-racism. A victim just shared with me that he was unable to question a Suspected Racist because he could not remain calm; his feelings erupted and shutdown his ability to carefully interrogate a White person. This happens all the time.
I struggle to think of instances where non-whites have been Michael Corleone. Meticulous, calculating and deliberate in what they said and did to deal with White Supremacy. The few instances where I have observed this... White people have generally been befuddled and stunned. They're accustomed to Sonny too; they don't expect methodical Victims of White Supremacy.
Racists know how to deal with Sonny. White people are exceptional at manipulating the emotions of non-whites. Let me say this one mo' time... White people are exceptional at manipulating the emotions of Victims of White Supremacy. I've seen White people take us from livid to laughter and back again. Just like Sonny... White people enrage us so that we sprint to our demise - which they have painstakingly rehearsed. If you want real life examples of this, check out the April 13th edition of The C.O.W.S. Radio Show. Dr. Kenneth O'Reilly talks about how White FBI agents instigated conflict between non-white people during the so called Civil Rights Movement which resulted in non-whites killing other non-whites.
Victims of White Supremacy would take a major weapon from the Racists if we trained ourselves to leave emotions out of our counter-racist strategies. Michael Corleone doesn't name-call and spew profanities. He makes shrewd choices based on the long term objectives for the success of the business. Counter-racism would take a quantum leap if our behavior looked less like Sonny, more like Michael.
Tom Hagen: This is business, not personal, Sonny!
Discontinuing sexual intercourse between White people and non-white people is a logical business move. Having sexual intercourse with a Suspected Racist is an extraordinary distraction and impairs the non-white person's critical thinking - especially as it relates to Racism. Having sex with a White person makes things real personal... not good for business.
Being suspicious of all White people is a business move; it's not vengeance for past wrongs to butchered non-whites. It's the sensible mind frame to adopt in the context of White Supremacy. Any honest and logical White person will understand this(check out The C.O.W.S. for evidence that this is true)... it's not personal, it's business.
And if a Suspected Racist objects to this line of reasoning... let them know:
Counter-racism is the business that was thrust upon me. The Business of White Supremacy has compelled me to be in the business of counter-racism. I wish it wasn't this way; it's not personal. I hope you understand. And if you don't... that's part of the business too.
