White Supremacy Does NOT Exist!

 

The phrase White Supremacy is being thrown around a lot especially due to Donald Trump being named the President of the United Snakes States. of America.  Let’s look at this word Supremacy.

SUPREMACY:  the state or condition of being SUPERIOR TO ALL OTHERS in authority, power, or status. – Webster’s Dictionary.

Supreme : 1520s, from Middle French suprême (15c.) and directly from Latin supremus “highest,” superlative of superus “situated above,” from super “above” (see super-). Supreme Being “God” first attested 1690s; Supreme Court is from 1689. – Etymology Dictionary.

White supremacy is a lie and does NOT exist.  I’ll Explain.

I abandoned the term White Supremacy from my train of thought about 3 years ago.

I realized that white supremacy is a FICTIONAL narrative used to put a spell on the minds of people of color so that they feel less then and therefore behave as such and/or feel victimized in this age of information and the land of opportunity.

The real issue is White Privilege.  Let’s look at the definition & etymology of this word : Privilege.

Privilege:  a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available ONLY to a particular person or group of people. – Webster’s Dictionary

Privilege  (n.)  – mid-12c. “grant, commission” from Old French privilege “right, priority, privilege” (12c.) and directly from Latin privilegium “law applying to one person, bill of law in favor of or against an individual,” in the post-Augustine period “an ordinance in favor of an individual, privilege, prerogative,” from privus “individual” (see private (adj.)) + lex (genitive legis) “law” (see legal (adj.)). Meaning “advantage granted” is from mid-14c. in English. – Etymology Dictionary

White privilege is based on the silver spoon inherited by most whites due to slave labor and the financial rank of their forefathers.

Slaves and other immigrants, building the infrastructure of america for nothing or less than nothing, did not have the benefit of forming industry and business relative to their white counterparts.

Racism, as a created social construct, was deemed necessary to fuel American industry and justify making man into animal and unworthy of the spoils of his or her own labor. This also justified the mistreatment and mis-education of the Native Africans, Native Americans and other indentured servants.

This caste system with its roots in India and Aryans nomads from the north (where the group Aryan Nation got its name) where white men were better than men of any other color, became a tool of the class of the American banking elite and enforced through the Virginia slave codes enacted between the 16 and 1700’s

If we go back to the initial definition of Supremacy at the beginning of this article,and it’s etymology, we will see that saying the term White Supremacy is in essence saying the white man is Godlike in comparison to you. We will also see the term “supreme” introduced into law around the same time  the slave codes were .

Coincidence? I doubt it.

In history, when people are conquered, the land is taken, the old God’s or deities are replaced with those of the new rulers, their history and books are burned and erased, women are taken and subjugated and their language is changed to that of their conqueror. The ruling class is often educated, rich and has a large army.

This is a standard practice of WARFARE and most of it is PSYCHOLOGICAL.  There is nothing “Supreme” about it.  It’s the business of power and control of the minds and bodies of the masses.

A poor uneducated white man or “white trash” is just a Nigger with blond hair and blue eyes who doesn’t use his white privilege effectively. Nothing “supreme about him. An educated white man will benefit from white privilege mostly due to institutionalized racism, not supremacy or anything godlike as the definition states.

The 1% doesn’t care what color you are. They Tax EVERYBODY and create loopholes for themselves. They control the masses with Religion regardless of race and manipulate them EQUALLY. They practice divide and conquer tactics and use the media to accelerate group think.

The idea of White supremacy is a mesmerizing SPELL that DOESN’T exist and that idea may be holding you back. Saying someone is supreme or superior over and over is highly detrimental to one’s advancement and state of mind.

If I even think about that term, I mentally change it to WHITE PRIVILEGE which is much more truthful and accurate based on an objective historical lens.

Reprogram your mind and your body WILL follow. Repetition is key.

Proactive Educational Always Creates Elevation.  Ask Malcom X.

Compete with all that oppose you. Read on different subjects.. Create. Get out of your comfort zone.  Produce things. Consume less. Travel More.

No one is more supreme than YOU.  Be SUPREME.

Let’s get back to greatness!

Why the Ashy Conscious Hoteps Hate Beyonce

Sometimes it’s not good to do good to some people.

Some people are used to drama and pain because that’s all they know and if you show them kindness they will attack you for it or try to take advantage of your extending hand. They aren’t used to goodness and don’t know how to appreciate it.

You can give them a dollar and they say “Shit, He got it, He should have gave me ten dollars” . Or, you help them move all day and they say “Damn, she could have at least helped me unpack too”.  You know those people. Nothing is ever good enough and if you do one right thing they find five that you did wrong.

Ungrateful and want to take advantage of your kindness. SMH.

Let’s get into Beyonce’s AMAZING half time show at Superbowl 50.

Beyonce’s performance was excellent. She came out in all black and had her dancers dressed like female members of The revolutionary Black Panther Party who’s slogan was “POWER TO THE PEOPLE”. You know, the group that probably is the reason your kid is eating free lunch at school.

The Superbowl is the nations top televised sporting event and Bey chose the occasion to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party, highlight the #Blacklivesmatter movement and bring attention to the death of Mario Woods in California. Powerful.

She even channeled Micheal Jackson.

 

I was impressed and i’m not even a Beyonce fan. She showed a willingness to put her money and fame on the line to promote the struggle for Blacks in America and endure the criticism from the establishments of racism . SHE DID THIS ON THE BIGGEST STAGE IN AMERICA!!!

As i logged on to social media following morning i expected to see  so called “conscious” Black Americans happy as hell that:

A. Beyonce is waking up or

B. Beyonce did this for US in Black America!

But no. The Hoteps/Conscious community was NOT HAPPY. How disappointing it was to see the anger and vitriol  about Beyonce doing the RIGHT THING FOR BLACK PEOPLE!!

Is it because she wasn’t wearing 3/4th’s of cloth and a Kufi?

Ans: Yes, she was half naked. So was your momma when she had you and so are most indigenous African women. Even in traditional African ritual the women are scantily clad.

Is it because she has a blond weave?

Ans: She does. But again, youre momma or auntie might have one on now. Does this make her less black?

Is it because she doesn’t speak up about every single issue that black people want her too?

Ans: Singing is her job. The stage her workplace. Do you have #Blacklives matter stuff all over your cubicle?. Did you organize the people in your office to pray for Freddie Gray?

Nothing is good enough for those who do nothing. They don’t appreciate kindness. They spit on hands that help pull them up.

When she went to the march for Trayvon during the Zimmerman trial, the Black conscious community accused her of trying to steal attention from the seriousness of Trayvon’s death. So she slid to the background, stopped going to marches, but donated millions of dollars to #BlackLivesMatter and her and Jay Z were bailing out  protesters during the Baltimore Uprising. But the conscious community got mad and said she was just throwing money and not using her celebrity to bring light to the issues.

 

So now she performs at the Superbowl, the most viewed television moment of every year, with the Black Panthers as her backup dancers, fist in the damn air. She’s using her celebrity in a very public way to support blackness, and now y’all saying she just doing it for publicity?

Do you really think Beyonce needs to do a publicity stunt when she drops albums out of nowhere, with no promotion, that go multi platinum?  Seriously?

Remember this?

She’s been here the whole time and the black community has been attacking every effort she makes. Every. Single. One.

She should have done another catchy jingle song that she normally does and wouldn’t have to deal with this backlash from cretins like this……

It’s so sad that so many “conscious” people want to discredit what Beyonce is doing because of what she’s not doing.

Seemingly discrediting her because either she also supports gay rights or just simply don’t look the “Natural” part.

This lady not only financially supports black causes but risked alienating her most lucrative audience to make a statement on behalf of her own black Americans.

Yet these same people judging and ridiculing do nothing but look the part and sound the part but make no difference. Reminds me of many Baptist preachers. Just because you may feel like you need to rock a Afro in order to be proud of being black, many don’t.

Watching Hidden Colors twice a week, creating memes,  eating a alkaline diet while wearing your dashiki will not set your people free. You like style over substance. Stop wasting so much time being rebellious and be EFFECTIVE.

Mario Woods family must be ecstatic…

You conscious Hoteps hate Beyonce right? Tell me what YOU’RE doing that equals what Beyonce did at that Superbowl??? 

I’ll wait..

Be CONSCIOUS of the fact that being pro black is just that, being pro black and not a Afro or being a Hidden Colors enthusiasts … put your money, time and life on the line for your people and stop idolizing self severing rebellion. 

 

Get in Formation!!!!

 

Victimhood: The Sleeping Spell on Black America

 

In life, regardless of your upbringing or social status, there are two very important lifestyle choices one must make. You can choose to sit on the sidelines and watch things happen around you or you can act and be the one to change and make things happen around you.

You can be a spectator or a go getter.
You can fight for victory or accept victim hood. Fight or flight.

Unfortunately, it seems like alot of Black Americans have chosen victim hood as an acceptable lifestyle. Not all, but a good enough amount to make it a social issue. I’ll shortly explain why i have this perspective:

America is an ugly yet beautiful place.
It is filled with some of the most amazing success stories known to man and also home to some of the greatest atrocities committed by mankind. America will give your grandmother social security benefits and at the same time kick her out of a rent stabilized building so the landlord can build overpriced condos. Life isn’t fair and neither is America. In fact, globally America is the big bad bully coming to take your woman, her self esteem, your oil, your resources, your culture, your currency, kill and/or incarcerate your strong men and place American television programming in your country so they can put you through the psychological mind fuck of reality television, bad food, consumerism and perceived American perfection. The U.S.A. is the wild wild west and we, the taxpayers, provide these capitalist cowboys their guns and bullets whether we like it, realize it, or not.

Still, America has the one thing everyone worldwide wants and not every country provides which is this:

The opportunity to live whatever lifestyle you choose…. as long as you can finance it.

 

What? You thought i was going to type life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Ha!! That’s American propaganda folks!
Lets examine why its propaganda..

Life: Monsanto based foods will kill you. Lets not mention the health drawbacks of a fast food diet. Toxic waste emissions making the ozone deplete. Global warming. High rent. Terrorism via American foreign policy, etc.

Liberty: America has the highest prison population in the world. Most of them black and Latino. More and more are children being tried as adults. Nuff said.

 

The pursuit of happiness: Capitalism is extremely self serving and exploitative. It will place you in a subprime mortgage knowing its going to quadruple and not inform you. Capitalism is perpetual buyer beware. This keeps people on edge and unhappy.

Nevertheless. …….

People from all walks of life and ethnic backgrounds overcome insurmountable odds and are triumphant in spite of them.  People come off of train, plane, boat and illegally cross  borders all for the promise of the American dream. They come into this country and oftentimes do menial labor while attending school or saving money to invest in their dreams.

They then open stores, become doctors and lawyers, build good credit, practice cooperative economics, buy and sell to another, organize and build institutions and maintain their cultural integrity for the most part while doing so.

In short, they come to America to win and struggle and sacrifice to do so. Nothing stops them.

Africans and people from the Caribbean often come into this country with little usually and oftentimes cant even speak the English language correctly . Yet they still become business owners, builders and educated professionals.

What’s stopping black people born in America from succeeding in the country everyone wants to come to?

Two simple reasons: American cultural hubris and the highly promoted images of black limitation, criminality, injustice and racism in American media that blacks in America accept as truth.

American cultural hubris is the cultural expectation that you will be taken care of by the American system.  Black people have taken on this hubris in the same way White Americans have, without realizing that America is not, nor was not built to service black needs or black justice.  It was built for Whites to be Kings and for blacks to be servants.The recent cases of police brutality and police assassinations on young black men are opening many eyes to this fact. In fact, a white criminal is more likely to get a job than a black male with no criminal record. Yet, black Americans still feel victimized when these things are discovered rather than fight tooth and nail to build their own institutions to service their needs like the Jews, Amish, Asian and even the African and Caribbean communities.

American  hubris also leads many to think that the black millionaire or billionaire is obligated to save them or “give back to the hood”.  Also, that a Black leader will “fix it” and somehow miraculously take care of everything wrong with black America.  The other option is to just wait for Jesus and the rapture and receive their heaven upon death. Thinking that someone or something  else will take care of the problem while neglecting one’s own remedies for the community.  We need to seek ways individually and collectively to contribute in saving the present and future generations instead of waiting for a savior to come and bring us to the promised land.

Black limitation is also constantly pushed through american media as almost a fact of life. Black men are shown as criminals on every 10 pm newscast daily and black violence is a mainstay while other cultures violent acts get little to no airplay. If you turn on BET during the day, you’ll see repeated payday loan and debt consolidation commercials, as if black people accept being in debt as their destiny. We can also go into the cop shows that reinforce black criminality and police violence as somehow part of black peoples birthright. Look at the lack of black success stories and black entrepreneurs, that are not either sports figures or entertainers, that are showcased via the media. The blatant injustice against blacks that the courts sanction and rationalize.  Reality shows showcasing our worst behavior worldwide hardly help either.

BUT…Blacks from other countries don’t complain. They come here work hard and organize among their culture to create stores and institutions for their well being. They don’t subscribe to victim hood. They subscribe to a by any means necessary mentality. The same one Malcolm X and the N.O.I. espoused decades ago and is still relevant.

Blacks in America need to realize they are not wanted in America and certainly not beloved by the powers that run it.  The descendants of slaves are not meant to rise and become kings. Power is never freely given but taken. We need to become self sufficient, self aware, culturally educated and empowered and realize that we have to take care of themselves, as our own separate cultural entity with unique issues, before blaming the government, popular media,  successful blacks, schools and other entities for their underclass status in America.

American Blacks need an independent do for self attitude that is focused less on complaining and bitching about what “they” are doing to us and more on organizing and fixing the issues that stop the “they” from doing it to us in the first place. The focus should always be the solution and not the problem itself.
The focus should never be on how you are being victimized but how to gain victory.

If a black man or woman from any other part of the world can come here and succeed, there is nothing stopping us who were born here in the US who have  opportunities that some blacks in the Diaspora would kill for.

 

Break the curse. Educate yourself and your family. Participate in local politics. Sacrifice some fun and fuckery to build. Mentor a child in your own family first or a child in your neighborhood that could use advice. Start a business. Attend a class. Watch less television. Tap into your own gifts. Create. Outwork other cultures.  Move from victim to victory. Our ancestors died and struggled for this.

Peace, Power and Prosperity….
