"Interracial Relationships" Are SADD 3.0

Sex is the principle around which the whole structure of [White Supremacy] . . . is organized." Gunnar Myrdal
Oklahoma Police Officer, Suspected Racist and Suspected Rapist Daniel Holtzclaw has been arrested and charged with raping and/or molesting at least eight black females. Just like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Jr.'s killers, Whites invested in Holtzclaw; an alleged White sexual predator raked in approximately $10,000 in roughly three days. His bond was subsequently lowered and he's been released to house arrest. Thus far, Daniele Watts has received more attention and harsher treatment. And it's undisputed that she's raped no one.

These incidents reflect White values. These concurrent events offer additional evidence of the global empire of White Supremacy, White Terrorism. Sexual exploitation of non-white people is a persistent, undeniable and essential component of White amusement and domination. The predatory White psyche is on display when powerful Whites celebrate Halle Berry for Monster's Ball and Kerry Washington for Scandal and Django Unchained - costarring Daniel Watts. Pulp Fiction - another Quentin Tarantino tour de force - has enjoyed two decades of global White reverence and adulation; an Academy Award nominated landmark featuring Ving Rhames (black male) being anally raped by a White male enforcement official. 

Again, we pause for Abner Louima and those whom deny Tarantino and his work are an accurate illustration of White Pathology.

One would hope that these contemporary incidents along with historical and scholarly analysis such as Reneathia Tate, Trojan Horse Publications, Danielle McGuire, Dr. Mwalimu Baruti and others would allow non-whites to easily grasp the logic of why no non-white person should engage in sexual  intercourse (or sexual play) with any White person. One would be mistaken.

Ms. Jaya Sundaresh (non-white female) visited The C.O.W.S. in August of 2014. We discussed her report on Michael Brown, Jr., antiblackness amongst non-black, non-white people, and the 8th area of people activity (SEX). Ms. Sundaresh admitted to having been in a sexual relationship with a White man for a number of years; she conceded that this likely influences her thinking on this matter. We continued our dialog after the conclusion of the broadcast. These are her thoughts:

Hi Gus, apologies for the long wait on this email. I've been very busy helping my grandparents move into their new place here in Bangalore, and I've also been thinking about how best to respond to you, how best to tackle this conversation. 
Frankly, I'm baffled at your claim that all interracial relationships are inherently exploitative. People from different layers in the kyriarchy enter into consensual, healthy relationships all the time. It's called heterosexuality. Men and women, who occupy very different positions in society, have been pairing off since time immemorial. I'd argue that the vast majority of these relationships have been coercive, and were established to extract labor and sexual labor from women, but it would be foolish to deny that there do exist at least some healthy, non-coercive heterosexual relationships. Same thing with interracial relationships. I'm sure that most of them are exploitative. My learning curve about my own relationship history was very steep, and now I pretty much exclusively date other men of color, and preferably South Asian men -- but to insist that interracial relationships are ALWAYS coercive is taking it a step too far.  
Women, in particular, have always had to wrestle with partners who wield more institutional power than they do. We have always had to deal with exploitation, and we have always found ways to make it work.
In conclusion, political lesbianism is not the answer to the problem of heterosexuality, and the problems inherent in interracial relationships won't be solved by avoiding them altogether.
Secondly, and more importantly, I'm a little stunned that you, as a man, would presume to tell other women of color who they can and cannot enter into relationships with. Because there's a context here, a history that can't be ignored. Men of color have been telling women of color what to do with their bodies for a very long time, now. Women have been turned into the symbols of anticolonial, antiracist, nationalist movements since they began. Men have consistently viewed women as repositories into which culture must be stored -- and have seen women as objects to be kept safe from exploitation, for the good of the nation. Women have been asked to wear the veil, to retreat into the shadows, to remain in their place, their sphere, to refrain from taking leadership positions -- all in the name of the struggle. Every time a woman chooses something for herself, it must be judged worthy by the ideological leaders of the struggle -- who generally happen to be men.  
Men of color have been telling women of color for a very long time who they're allowed to have sex with, and who they're not. I think anyone who asks women to circumscribe their actions for the sake of a greater goal, such as keeping culture alive, needs to stop and seriously reconsider whether they are denying women their autonomy.
I also just want to say -- it's insulting to presume to tell people of color that they are being exploited because they are in an interracial relationship, if they aren't. That disrespects the struggle of people who have actually been abused. People sometimes don't know when they're being exploited -- that's true. Many victims of abuse go through periods of denial and rationalization. But telling every Olivia Pope or Mindy Kaling that they are being exploited because they sometimes date white men is like telling every straight woman that they're being exploited because they sometimes date men. It just doesn't work. It goes too far.  
I hope this email makes my position clearer, and feel free to share my words with whoever you like. I look forward to hearing your response.

Persistant: Atlanta Hawks Futility, White Pathology

This entire government is geared up to fight a war against White people. I'm sorry to have to tell you that. I'm sorry to break the news. I realize it's shocking. I realize your heart is palpitating. I realize you're saying, "Wait a minute. You can't say that." Well, I just said it. I'll say it again. This entire federal government is geared up to fight a war against White people. There was just insurrection in Missouri. Rioting. Looting, etc. They been waiting for an insurrection by White people. That's what the Homeland Security is getting ready for. All you evil White crackers. Michael Savage

Don't dismiss Mr. Savage's commentary as reckless "right-wing" ravings. Several Whites have publicly expressed paranoia about Pres. Obama or random black "kids" plotting their demise.

We're all prejudice in one way or the other. If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it's late at night, I'm walking to the other side of the street. Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban
Cuban didn't stand his ground hypothetically or literally; he apologized to Trayvon Martin's family a few days after these remarks.

This is the context in which Bruce Levenson's allegedly controversial 2012 email should be evaluated. He's reportedly expressed remorse over his comments and agreed to sell his controlling share of the Atlanta Hawks franchise. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver condemned Levenson's musings and promised to re-double their anti-harassment and anti-discrimination policies with additional training.

Sensitivity training. A squirt of fragrance to mask centuries of pungent fumes of Racist rot in summer heat. The stench of Donald Sterling lingering fresh in our nose.

But Levenson isn't Sterling; the former does not have a public, irrefutable record of service as a White Race Soldier - terrorizing black citizens in many areas of people activity. Levenson's email presents frank business logistics and a matter-of-fact assessment of White convictions.

My theory is that the black crowd scared away the whites and there are simply not enough affluent black fans to build a significant season ticket base. Please don't get me wrong. There was nothing threatening going on in the arena back then. I never felt uncomfortable, but I think southern whites simply were not comfortable being in an arena or at a bar where they were in the minority. On fan sites I would read comments about how dangerous it is around Philips yet in our 9 years, I don’t know of a mugging or even a pick pocket incident. This was just racist garbage. When I hear some people saying the arena is in the wrong place I think it is code for there are too many blacks at the games.
A stadium filled with thousands of black people - some of them teens likely in hoodies. Cuban might be unwilling to accompany Dirk Nowitzki and company for their annual trip to ATL. Whitefolks generally have no interest being in close proximity to black people. If you're beyond middle school, this should be as shocking as the discovery that White "police" are often discourteous to black citizens or that Pres. Obama's election did not end Racism. Whites in Australia championed their "Whites Only" policy for decades. United States' citizenship was restricted solely to Whites until 1952. For several months, Whites have been downright unrelenting in promoting studies that conclude that a hefty portion of the White population has zero black friends; 75 percent of whites have "entirely white social networks without any [non-white] presence." If anything, there should be disbelief if Levenson is the first Hawks executive to comment on their critical mass of dark matter in the stands.

Pale forces of Madison Avenue and NBA executives including former commissioner David Stern have shared Levenson's anxieties about peddling an increasingly melanin dominant league to a majority White fan base. The following is from Dr. John Hoberman's Darwin's Athletes - published in 1996, nearly a decade before the infamous dress code and the ban on high school athletes joining the league.

“Charles Grantham, the black executive director of the NBA Players Association, offered this assessment in 1991: "A few years ago the NBA was perceived on Madison Avenue as being too black and too drug-infested. Once that was turned around, the league was able to promote its new personalities as exciting stars who were caring and concerned about their communities." In addition to creating the illusion of substantial player involvement in the black community, this theater of pseudo-reconciliation also serves to mitigate the pathos of American segregation, as Peter de Jonge has pointed out, by creating one-sided relationships between white fans and the black athletes they admire from afar: "In the last decade, the N.B.A., long considered too black to attract a mainstream audience, has prospered by giving middle-class whites, desperate for some semblance of a connection to black America, a series of unthreatening yet bigger-than-Iife cartoon superheroes called Magic, Michael, Charles and Shaquille." Far from concealing this manipulative campaign, the president of the NBA, David Stern, has boasted of the league's image-based strategy to gentrify its black giants and in the process create crossover market appeal in the manner of the Disney entertainment empire: "They have theme parks, and we have theme parks. Only we call them arenas. They have characters: Mickey and Goofy. Our characters are named Magic and Michael [Jordan]." (pg 150)
Black athletes converted to $40 million clowns to soothe White angst. A paternalistic imperative demands that White coaches and owners domesticate, season black savages for White consumption. William C. Rhoden declared that this "plantation mentality" is not isolated to Sterling - or Levenson.
Every time I walk into a press box, Michel [Martin], and see no African-American reporters, or every time I walk into a newsroom and see no African-American editors or, like, no reporters, you know, [Whites] are saying the same things without necessarily saying it. We don't respect you.  We don't respect black people. We're not going to hire you. We don't want you around.
As a former resident of Atlanta, (Gone With The Wind) Georgia,  personal experience amplifies that Mr. Levenson and Mr. Rhoden ain't just whistlin' Dixie. Robert Weintraub details how Atlanta's pro sports teams provide an accurate, pitiful appraisal of Racism:
The NFL’s Falcons offer another window into the city’s racial rift. The Falcons, too, are moving to a new stadium, one that’s still in downtown Atlanta. While the franchise, led by owner Arthur Blank, is staying inside the city’s perimeter (“ITP” to the locals), it’s relocating from an area considered by many to be “too black” to attract white fans. And in the name of snagging larger profits from a surrounding entertainment district, the team is razing a pair of historic black Baptist churches in the vicinity of the new stadium. The symbolism there isn’t pretty.
A White-owned franchise expelling black temples of worship for the sake of enticing greater numbers of Matt Ryan's White flock... talk about Dr. King's most segregated Sunday hour. And while we're on Atlanta, remember the 2014 snow storm that blasted ATL like the second coming of General Sherman? Tracy Thompson did a spectacular job illustrating how White revulsion of black people stifled MARTA and exacerbated hazardous, winter driving conditions.
I was a kid when then-Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. proposed a rapid rail system to link Atlanta to its surrounding suburbs, and I distinctly remember the joke circulating among white people back then, the one that said that MARTA (the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) actually stood for “Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta.” Plain and simple, it was white folks’ fear of black folks that explained the failure of a sales-tax hike to fund rapid rail in three of the then five counties making up the metro Atlanta area.
Rich Benjamin documented Whites across the country yearning and/or working expeditiously to produce and maintain residential enclaves sans melanin - some of them in Forsyth, GA. Businesses incorporate this Racist predilection into their corporate strategy. Texas' Kung Fu Saloon has been repeatedly accused of mistreating potential non-white customers. A former White employee alleges that she was terminated for not adhering to their White Supremacist code:
Patrons or would-be patrons, have consistently complained that the dress code is selectively enforced against [non-whites]. Now an ex-event planner says she was trained to screen calls and deny customers who sounded "too ghetto" or "too Asian." The term "ghetto" she said, was code word for African American and added, "I never saw a white person turned away."  When she did not she heard comments like, "Why is it so dark in here? Why is it so Asian in here? Did you not screen these phone calls?"
Whites are not ignorant about Racism. They codify their pathologies into concepts and strategies that consistently yield the best results for the Racist White collective - which translates into predictable, perpetual abuse of non-white people, especially black people. Levenson believed that White Atlantans were using coded language to suggest that Hawks' games were treacherous because of the large black presence. The Dallas tavern was alleged to have a wardrobe code that could be strategically employed to exclude non-white people. David Stern and other White league executives (Suspected Race Soldiers) were widely believed to have instituted a dress code and age restrictions in acquiescence to their Racist fan base.

Context is crucial to grasp the Racist motivations that produced the 2005 age and wardrobe referendums. NBA icon "property" Michael Jordan retired in 2003. A year later USA Basketball suffered its first defeat with NBA players at the Athens Olympics. A few short months after this international humiliation, the Detroit suburbs became the site of a historic melee between the Pistons and Indiana Pacers; Ron Artest (black male) charged into the stands to confront a Suspected Racist spectator (John Green) whom assaulted him with a beverage. Hoards of Whites abandoned Detroit for bleached suburbs like Auburn Hills precisely to escape niggers like Artest. If many Whites thought of (think of) Richard Sherman as a thug for raising his voice in the presence of a White Woman, one can imagine the impact of cornrowed black males slugging ticket-buying Whites. White flight from the NBA was widespread and bruising league purses. As White Supremacists have no intention of going out of business, they refine practices to achieve more favorable results, more White derrières in seats.

In 2005, retired Hall of Famer Charles Barkley succinctly summarized his view of the mandated wardrobe policy: "Of course it's Racist." Before anyone thinks of Barkley as the 21st century resurrection of Arthur Ashe, this is the same person who affirmed the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's murderer. Barkley elaborated on the logic buttressing the NBA garment regulations: "From the NBA perspective, they've got a product to sell. They've got to make it as attractive as possible to fans, viewers and corporate sponsors." That's White fans, White viewers and White corporate sponsors. Meaning Whites will package and adorn negro athletes in anyway they see fit to assuage Racist White consumers. Including putting Sir Charles in a dress... repeatedly.

2005 also marked the end of black athletes joining the NBA directly from high school. Barkley, Magic Johnson and a host of Whites professed that this was in everyone's best interest. Players would get time to mature and polish their skills at the collegiate level and the league would get older, better prepared (seasoned) products. These trite affirmations ignored that it was exclusively black players leaping from prom to the pros. They also didn't mention that few have expressed concern for Jennifer Capriati and other Whites as young as thirteen who've traveled the world playing White-dominated professional sports. NBA stars Tony Parker and Ricky Rubio began playing professional basketball in their respective countries (France, Spain) at 17. And these United States have no problem extending the ballot box or training you as a killer in any branch of the armed services at eighteen years of age. Only a bastion of hypocrisy would permit an 18-year-old to star in pornography but deny him NBA employment. Many of the league's best players of the last decade matriculated directly from high school. Kobe Bryant. Kevin Garnett. Dwight Howard. LeBron James. The NCAA plantation missed the chance to pimp these black athletes, and many Whites were less than enthused with the prospect of black males nabbing million dollar contracts before the ink dried on their high school diplomas. In many White circles, James (black people in general) remains unforgiven.

Bruce Levenson, Adam Silver and White NBA executives in total have a substantially higher percentage of black players than any other professional sports league. In a global System of White Supremacy, marketing a predominantly black league to White audiences demands an obsession with optics - the projection of blackness. Part of the fallout from the 2004 "malice in the Palace" was three consecutive years of White league MVP's (Steve Nash 2005, 2006; Dirk Nowitzki 2007). Forget those dark savages! Focus on these masterful White Tarzans, overseers of the hard court jungle, plantation. From Serena Williams to President Obama, Whites have been reluctant if not repulsed with the prospect of cheering on a black person in any capacity - much less rooting alongside a mostly black congregation. It's a gargantuan fraud for any Whites to take umbrage with what Levenson admits to writing. If his email warrants punitive action, thousands of other Whitefolks should be updating their resumes and submitting a notice of resignation - including Danny Ferry. 

Most of the players resented Jerry [Krause] for one reason or another. It started with Michael [Jordan]. During his second year with the Bulls, Michael broke his left foot and had to sit out most of the season recovering from the injury. At a certain point, Michael insisted that his foot was fully healed, but Jerry refused to let him play until the doctors gave him the final okay. When Michael pushed back, Jerry told him that management had made the decision because he was their property, an unfortunate gaffe that alienated Michael and tainted his relationship with Krause from that day forward. (pg. 113)  Eleven Rings Phil Jackson
Which brings us back to (Racist Suspect) Mark Cuban's "slippery slope." When additional evidence of Donald Sterling's White Supremacist legacy was revealed during the 2014 playoffs, Cuban opposed Sterling being forced to sell his property. He found it un-American to persecute someone for repugnant, "backstage" comments. Tommy LaSorta, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton and other Whites castigated V. Stiviano for reminding the public of Sterling's Racism. Bill Maher railed against "political correctness" and alleged breaches of privacy that ensnared role models and all around swell folks like Sterling, Paula Deen and Paul Ryan.

There's a reason the likes of George Zimmerman, Darren Wilson and Suspected Rapist Daniel Holtzclaw aren't merely supported with White lip service. These killers and alleged molesters are upgraded to new tax brackets with obese donations from numerous members of the White Supremacist Army. Donald Sterling got a lifetime ban and $2 billion for the sale of the Clippers. (A few dozen folks have speculated that Levenson wanted to divest in the Hawks, and self-identifying as a Racist was his means of departure. Lump me in with the likes Donald Sterling, just make sure we're in the same tax bracket.) Racism is the cash cow. Whites make certain that other White people being penalized for terrorizing black people is as common as a black occupant of the White House.

And that splash of melanin at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue still has many Whites disgruntled - even beyond the grave. To the point that Michael Savage, Cliven Bundy and Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks believe there's a war against Whites. Darkies like Attorney General Eric Holder are orchestrating a lynching of well meaning Whitefolks such as Officer Wilson. More than 100 - mostly White - Seattle "Police" Officers have named Holder among others as defendants in a lawsuit opposing federally mandated reforms to address allegations of Racism and police misconduct.

Levenson's dismissal will likely bolster the persecution complex of melanin deficient Whites who fear their country, way of life and freedoms to hail the Redskins and swap nigger jokes are being curtailed. The deterioration has reached new lows where a blond White Woman can't call a black person a "Faggot Ass Nigger" without fear of being recorded and reprimanded. Where will it end?

Samuel Sommers, PhD recently documented that a significant number of Whites now believe they are victims of Racism. Growing numbers of black people obtaining correct information on and accurately articulating what Racism is and how it works, is a monumental threat to Whites; some Whites have already stated that opposition to Racism equals opposition to Whites.  Increasing numbers of non-white people are utilizing ever-evolving technology to document Whitefolks trifling, terroristic targeting of black people. Cellphones are now integral weapons in spotlighting Racism. Email and text messages are proving increasingly detrimental to the Racist enterprise - they have a stubborn shelf life and can easily get loose on the web. Levenson's discharge will likely amplify White unease - a defensive anxiety that the slightest verbal faux pas will wound the childish sensibilities of black people and cost a hard working White Soldier like Jimmy The Greek or Marge Schott their livelihood. And we still got two more years of that damn Obama.

The Levenson saga is only a couple days old and largely unsettled. In fact, it seems Levenson's former colleague and Hawks' General Manager Danny Ferry will also be under scrutiny. He has admitted to reading the following remarks about African born player, Loul Deng:

Deng "has a little African in him. Not in a bad way, but he's like a guy who would have a nice store out front but sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back."
A White Duke graduate being reprimanded for deprecating an African (who happens to be a fellow Blue Devil alumnus)... what is the world coming to?

Expecting anything other than eternal deception, hostility, warfare, and terrorism from Whites is like betting on a Hawks' championship parade down Peachtree. You're destined for years of disappointment.
