If white people think they’re victims of racism, there’s no use talking to them.

I’ve admitted a few times that I, myself, am racist. Although, it may not be a correct self-assessment. I’m more prejudiced than racist as I have no power to drive the prosperity of non-blacks and only non-blacks down while plotting ways to diminish any hope for them to be on par with us in any way due to loathsome myths that I’ve thoughtlessly ingested.

Yet, I’ve been accused of being racist…against whites by whites. Most entries in my blog are about the malign facets of whiteness: white racism, white supremacy, white fragility, etc. That alone is enough for passerbys and devoted trolls to deliver more ruinous whiteness in the form of deflection, name-calling, condemnation and denial. I’m called a racist. My opinions are delusional, silly and stupid, and the truth is fake.

The most important thing these white-minded individuals want me to know out of all of their banter is that white people are victims of racism. Either that or there’s more racism against them than nonwhites. So, one way or another, I’m wrong and – of course, racist – for blogging about all the shit whiteness has done and is doing. Discussing and criticizing whiteness is equivalent to attacking white people, and I’m fundamentally no different than the KKK.

But how oppressed are white people really are? Are they being pulled over by police in large numbers for “looking suspicious”? Are they followed around stores out of fear that they may shoplift? Are they passed over for jobs and careers based on white-sounding names? Are mostly white neighborhoods, especially poor ones, considered dangerous areas to live, especially at night?

I could ask more questions, present actual facts and data, but no matter what I ask or say, no matter what truths are given, white people will reject it as part of the fake news scheme, an unholy plot against white people, because they’re simply white.

This is why it’s not our responsibility to teach white people about ourselves or racism. Doing so is a full-time job with no pay or benefits, at least not for us.

No explanation or contest against their thinking is worthy of their attention. They’re really not interested in a discussion. They rather argue, put down and win by any means. They prefer apologies or better, that we agree with them and adopt their thinking. Nothing pleases whiteness more than people of color siding with it. As a black person, white people just don’t want to listen let alone hear about what you feel about racism unless if it’s from any of the broken records from the archive of whiteness.

Yet, some think going to spaces that weren’t meant for their comfort is somehow a good idea. They claim to want to add to the conversation and present “another side” to the issue which involves more hits from the broken record of whitenss. But in then end, all they’ll end up doing is intimidate, berate, shown hypocrisy, bully and threatened bloggers of color and white folks who disagree and tried to talk to these people and refuse to back down on what they know is right.

I’ve seen a lot of that while being a blogger. Self-proclaimed race realists, Tea Party members, Neo-Nazis, Trump supporters, cocky liberals and ignorant conservatives resort to being the worst kind of people just to get their points across. They will lie, deceive, gaslight and even threaten if they don’t get their way. Even more hair-pulling is when they claim that being a straight, white Christian male is the new homosexual, black Muslim female.

There would’ve been a slight chance for sympathy for these types as many of them are really struggling, but a lot of them prove, one way or another, that they are just horrible people, and they are living in a time where being horrible is somehow honorable. They don’t care that their hatred and deplorable attitudes harm others. Yet, they expect us to feel sorry that their precious people are somehow being oppressed.

They don’t deserve sympathy, because they truly don’t want it. And we should stop trying to reach out to those who would rather die than wake the hell up and realize who the REAL enemies are.

Gentlemen’s Foundry, Why Do You Believe That White People are Victims of Racism?

Tags

,

This is a question for Gentlemen’s Foundry.

This is not a question to humiliate you. I’m keeping it civil and I hope and expect you to do the same. As you know, a lot of white people believe that discrimination and racism against them is real and is on par with racism against blacks, and it’s obvious that you agree.

I believe you said you’ve experienced racism yourself and that you believe that all people, including whites, experience racism. And I’m very familiar with you calling me a racist and obsessively wanted me to explain what ‘whiteness’ means despite me answering your question and rejecting it. So, I expect straight and honest answers to why you feel that white people, including yourself are also victims of racism.

Everyone in this thread must keep it classy, especially you Gentlemen.

A Few Things Trump Has Lied About So Far and the Opinions Some People (Including Those on the Right) Have of Him

Tags

,

Donald

The Washington Post has reported that so far, Trump has produced falsehoods over 1,600 times. Here are a few:

“Obamacare is a disaster. It’s virtually dead. As far as I’m concerned, it really is dead.” (This is the first one you’ll see when you click on the page, because it’s the most repeated line he said.)

“We have the highest stock market we’ve ever had.”

We have the lowest unemployment in 17 years.”

“I got to tour parts of Vietnam, and it’s really looking well. It’s looking beautiful. And the people are happy, and the people are waving, and they like the United States; perhaps they like me. But they were really lined up in the streets by the tens of thousands, and we very much appreciate that.”

“Putin “said he didn’t meddle. He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times. But I just asked him again, and he said he absolutely did not meddle in our election. He did not do what they’re saying he did.”

“Our trade deals are so bad. Last year, we lost $800 billion, right? Yeah. $800 [billion], approximately. Check it. But approximately $800 billion on trade.”

“Congratulations to all of the ‘DEPLORABLES’ and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory!”

“The deal is so bad for rich people, I had to throw in the estate tax just to give them something.”

Again, this is just a sample of hundreds – HUNDREDS, and this is from the month of November of this year alone! Click here to read more and to learn the details behind each statement.

So far, as if it needed to be told, Trump doesn’t have a lot of people rooting for him, and some are from the party he represents. Check out a few of things notable people have said about him:

“This guy doesn’t know what it means to be president.”

— President George W. Bush

“Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud… His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing members of the American public for suckers…”

— Mitt Romney

When called a sexual predator: “True.”

— Donald Trump

“Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like Ms. Heyer. I, along with many others, do not endorse this moral equivalency.”

— Senator Lindsey Graham

“[T]his disgusting dude is the President of the United States and you realize just how much he is diminishing the presidency of the United States … he is embarrassing. He is shameful. He is disgusting.”

— Ana Navarro

“I want my GOP colleagues to explain to my 3 granddaughters why they think these viciously sexist comments are acceptable from our President.”

— Representative Barbara Lee

“At this point, who doesn’t want Trump impeached?”

— Ann Coulter

I spoke on my opinion of Trump’s followers obedient to him apparently until the very end. Such people that would look to this guy and thinks he’s better than the previous president must really be stupid or blind as hell. Or both. Make no mistake, Obama was no prefect politician, and I was critical of him and his supporters as well. However, to say that what we have in the White House was better defies all reasoning.

To me, such people really hate America, share the traits of this clown-in-chief or both. To me, they’re more loyal to him than they are of this country. If this nation falls, they wouldn’t care, because they still idolize Trump.

The question is why? Why the bloody hell would you support a ranting, racist, misogynistic, incompetent-as-fuck, sexually abusive, pathological liar whose done nothing but humiliate your country and places it in danger at every turn and tweet?

Why?

Talking about the things the privileged do, which is mostly harmful, doesn’t necessarily mean hatred.

Tags

, , , , ,

And by ‘privileged’, I don’t mean rich people, at least not alone. I mean people afford societal advantages based on inherit traits i.e. skin color, gender, sexual orientation, etc.

I talk about white racism…a lot. So, I’m assumed to hate white people, or so it’s believed. There’s nothing intricate about it. It’s an open-and-shut case, a zero-sum game.

Not to throw any puns, but it’s not that black and white.

One thing I’ve noticed when it comes to people with societal privileges, they seem to can’t stand it when the lesser privileged puts them in an unfavorable spotlight. Right away, the immediate response is that they hate them and has unfairly placed them all into a tight box. The comments usually range in between “not all of us” to “you hate us”, which hints that they’re feelings aren’t used to being pointed out. As such, their emotions appear fragile enough to initiate rejection, deflection and condemnation.

Some will go into an extensive diatribe, which can be plagued with guilt tripping and derailing, in an attempt to prove the lesser privileged wrong. They will throw them under the bus in order to protect their feelings, ego and keep their bubble from getting burst. As stated earlier, they’re not mentally or emotionally prepared to have their privileges check as they’re taught all their lives that they don’t have to do any secondary thinking from beyond their mindset. Asking them to do so, puts them in an uncomfortable position, a place there they don’t want to go, and they tend to not want to go on any journeys.

I’m black, but I’m also a male. I don’t have white privilege, but I have male privilege. Racism effects me, but not sexism or misogyny. I’m also straight. So, I don’t have to worry about homophobia. Yet, my straight male privileges have me think that I have authorities to talk about things that only the LGBTQ and women understand. It wasn’t until I “grew up” that I learn to check my privileges more often.

But being a person of color in this country, I’ve dealt with realities of racism and how it’s a part of every institution here. I know that white racism is still in existence and is still dangerous. I’m forced to deal with this truth everyday. All people of color have to.

White people dominate every institution in America. Politics, business, technology, even education. There are mostly white people in high positions. Yet, despite that, there are white folks who genuinely believe that they’re now discriminated against.

You would think that it would hint them at what people of color deal with on the daily and feel more sympathetic. Some do. Some don’t. Those who won’t end up becoming the problem, becoming racists themselves believing that people of color are racist against them and that white people are undergoing a racial genocide due to affirmative action and interracial dating.

With the growing crisis of sexual harassment in Hollywood and politics becoming the talk of the media, it should come to no surprise that there are men who want to remind women that not all men are sexual deviants. Even though that’s true, women – and even men who are also victims – the point is not to condemn men but to speak out against a crime that powerful people, who happen to be males, have made a mission to keep under wraps to cover their asses and maintain high status.

Yet, we men think that those women, and feminists in general, simply hate men and are actively working to take down powerful ones. Our privilege make us suspect the worse, ignoring what’s fact and what must be done. Men have it better than women in a patriarchal society to where our crimes against women are usually excused or justified. What’s worse is that our privilege will turn us into defenders of the status quo adding to the problem and making it worse.

To make things as clear as crystal, most people of color don’t hate white people. Most women don’t hate men. Most LGBTQ don’t hate straight people. And so on. They – we are just sick of the truckloads of shit done to us for the lamest of reasons. It’s not the color of white skin, the penis or the attraction to the opposite sex. It’s the content of the character…or lack thereof.

From NPR:

Jim Nabors, the comic actor best known for his years playing Gomer Pyle, one of TV’s most lovable goofs, has died at the age of 87. Nabors’ husband, Stan Cadwallader, confirmed to The Associated Press that the actor and singer died at home in Honolulu.

“Everybody knows he was a wonderful man. And that’s all we can say about him,” Cadwallader told the news service. “He’s going to be dearly missed.”

xPraetorius is permanently BANNED

Tags

, ,

As of now, xPraetorius of the blog entitled Praetorian Writers’ Group is hereby banned indefinitely from this blog. I will not link to the blog, but if you’re curious and want to check it out, put the blog’s name in the search engine.

At this time, I want to sincerely apologize for my mismanagement and thoughtless decision to lift the ban against him/her/them – screw it, I’ll refer to it as ‘him’ – giving him a chance to express his views in hopes that xPraetorius will conduct himself in a more civil fashion without the condescension that he is known for. I’ll admit, it was a serious misstep on my part as his views are considerably toxic, and he’s frankly just an unapologetic abusive asshole.

For those who want to know why xPraetorius banned, it’s not due to different views, but the way he argues. Here are segments from how xPraetorius responds to differing views as well as what he believes to be true:

“…You’re an ignorant, uneducated, illiterate moron, with very little going on between your ears. I’d prefer it if such as you would ignore me. You never have anything intelligent to say, so there’s no point in your saying anything at all.”

This was directed at a commenter who defiantly and humorously refutes xPraetorius’ responses.

“…There were more white European slaves in Africa than there were in America.”

“Your racism is a great discredit to you personally. You demand that others not be racist, but it’s okay for you to be racist? Are you kidding me?”

Note that I NEVER said that it was okay for me to be racist. I even said I wasn’t proud of it. But that confession is what he holds on to and uses it to further his bullying.

“I don’t suspect this post will make it to your blog… you have a tendency to censor those who disagree with you. Shame, though, because it represents another opportunity for you to learn, and to grow, and to be a better man. An opportunity that, I regretfully assume, you’ll decline to take.”

Bullshit. I censor those who won’t act like adults on my blog. I can agree to disagree, but you can’t argue with facts.

“You can’t talk to me because you don’t have anything worth saying.”

“Your inability to control your temper makes you seem like an uneducated, half-wit. You’re not, are you?”

“Because it’s not a big problem. There’s no reason to get all hot and bothered about something that’s not a big problem.”

‘It’ meaning racism, particularly against people of color, especially blacks.

“BW and I have gone back and forth for a long time. It’s all part of a long-standing effort on the part of my colleagues and me to study the Race Grievance Industry as a whole. BW is one of the RGI’s “foot soldiers,” and one of the few stubborn enough to hang in there for a while. Most of the ranks of the RGI are cowards, and unable to maintain a cordial debate. BW has his moments (see the rant in this thread) and then he has other moments when he’s not a complete clodpole.”

“BW’s an okay bloke, but prone to flights of fancy, and convinced that he’s a real soldier against racism. However, the racism he rails against hasn’t been a big problem in America for half a century. What black people face in America is daunting, but it’s because of a massively condescending, horribly infantilizing impulse on the part of the political Left.”

And this little gem:

“Obama is a racist, while Trump is not. Therefore to rant about Trump’s racism would be the same thing as accusing Shaquille O’Neal of being short. Why rant about something that’s not true. So, yes, also I’m not a racist.”

Get the picture?

I’ve tried my best to discuss and even tried to debate in a civil manner. As I’ve learned, people like xPraetorius seems more concerned with the tone of one’s argument as opposed to why they’re upset in the first place. But in xPraetorius’ case, it’s not just about the tone of those against racism but that the problem itself isn’t major.

Frankly, it’s gotten past vexing. As you can see by the snippets from the piles of responses he leaves behind, xPraetorius is not interested in civility and can’t stop with the juvenile name-calling or childish condemnation foolishly claiming how it’s not harmful and is somehow smart. Furthermore, his views are warped in favor of actual racism, the kind he doesn’t think is a huge issue. Yet, he believes he’s intellectually motivated and is dedicated to the truth. But as you can see, he thinks 45 is not a racist. How close to the truth can he be?

I never intended to change xPraetorius’ conservative views, but his lack of tact, manners and blatant childish refusal of different opinions as well as simple-to-research facts told in a respectable manner made it impossible to have an open conversation with him. However, it seemed he wished for me to accept and adopt the right wing way of thinking, but he doesn’t seem adult enough to accept that I refuse and that I’m not as liberal as he thinks. Yet, his constant attacks have drained me, and I made the decision to cut him off completely.

You can be sure there’s a chance, xPraetorius will copy, paste and refute this post in his own blog while making himself look intellectually superior. He will call me a coward, among other names, and make me look foolish on his blog. He has the right to do so, but I will back away from his bullshit from now on, and he can call me a coward all he wants.

So far, xPraetorius went after another black blogger Abagond. Then, he turned towards me. And now he’s after At the Bar. But he’s no longer allowed to come here as his IP address is on the comment blacklist and will NEVER be removed.

In the end, it’s best for myself and all of us to distance ourselves from xPraetorius, otherwise his views and cyberbullying tactics will harm us more to his apparent sick satisfaction if we allow his trolling to continue here.

From the Guardian:

US teen idol David Cassidy, best known as Keith Partridge on the hit 1970s series The Partridge Family, has died at the age of 67 from organ failure.

Cassidy had been hospitalised in Florida for several days, after experiencing failure of the kidney and liver.

His death was confirmed by publicist Jo-Ann Geffen, who shared a statement from his family.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, our uncle, and our dear brother, David Cassidy.

“David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long. Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years.”

This goes out to any and all trolls

Tags

, ,

Like I said in my previous entry, a couple of trolls seem to be attracted to what I have to say to the point where they won’t live and let go. I’ve dealt with the likes of the Praetorian Writers Group and now I’m dealing with a fellow going by the name Gentlemen’s Foundry (GF).

I’m sure you’ve seen the comments he left which allude to me being a racist. I admitted some years ago that I AM a racist (even though technically I’m prejudice), and I’m not proud one bit. On that note, I’m also sexist, and I’m not proud of it either. I accept that I’m both those things, and have been working to change. I don’t hide behind a smokescreen of denial by pointing fingers. But I digress as I’m not accusing GF of anything in this post.

However, GF has accused me of being racist. So, I’m not scarred by it. I admit it, because this is a racist nation and one cannot live in a racist nation and not be affected by it. Again, I’m not proud of it, nor am I in denial of it. Yet, these conservative mofos think they’re immune to it, and that us who are black and more on the left side of thinking are somehow a threat to the well-being to white male civilization.

Of course, me admitting to being racist is more than enough fuel for the those like GF to use against me. xPraetorius used that “I’m racist against whites” thing before, and I knew it was only a matter of time before another like-minded individual to pounce in my den.

I don’t write about white racism out of some sick satisfaction. I find no pleasure in talking about an issue that affects me way more than people like GF can fully comprehend. I grew up, met and have been friends with white folks, and after learning at a later age that white racism is still a significant topic generated an internal conflict.

I’m still friends with most of the white people in my life. I lost a few after my woke side took form. But I still love them all as I love all people. I doubt GF believes that since he believes that straight white males have it tough due to conspiracies against the group and that he’s no racist even though such a belief is essentially a race-based issue.

More may be coming for me for speaking against racism and white supremacy, and GF seems hellbent in trying to defeat me by any and all means in an internet fight I don’t intend on waging. In a response to my post, he did exactly what I said he would do, went to his blog and refuted every point made while simultaneously proving mine in the process. In one of his responses he left this little warning:

“Listen, coward. Anytime someone tries to divide my country along racial lines, it is a threat to my fellow citizens and my family. Regardless of their skin color. Being considered a minority, in selective conditions, does not make you immune to my wrath.”

It does no good to convince GF that I’m NOT the one dividing his country, and I have a strong feeling that telling him who really is will do a world of good. People like Steve Bannon, Milo Yiannopolis, Mike Cernovich, Chuck C. Johnson, Richard Spencer, Tim Gionet, Andrew, Anglin, Paul Kersey, Jared Taylor, Carl Benjamin, David Duke and our own clown-in-chief and his gang – just to name a few – are the ones GF needs to truly worry about, not me.

Seeing how both xPraetorius and GF have been mostly silent about those individuals whose racist views are as plain as the noses on their faces, it just shows how disingenuous their stance against racism really is. So, to me, that means they’re full of shit, and anyone else with like minds are also full of shit.

I don’t know why they’re obsessed with me or my blog, but if their underlying motive is to make me run, it won’t work. If GF thinks I’m a threat to his country, he’s either delusional as fuck and is trying to bring me down for reasons only his therapist can theorize or he’s a typical troll, even though he won’t admit it, who’s seeking attention and amusement due to narcissism and sadism.

So, I would like to let him and any other troll lurking about that if you want to silence the message, then you BETTER silence the messenger. If you have any wrath to unleash to satisfy your insecurities, you better be thorough and do a damn good job.

As they say from where I live, get at me.

Rest In Peace, Della Reese

From CBS News:

Della Reese, best known for her work on “Touched by an Angel,” has died at age 86. The actress and gospel-influenced singer found her greatest fame as Tess, the wise angel in the long-running television drama, when she was in her 60s.

Reese’s co-star on the series, Roma Downey, said in a statement that the actress died peacefully Sunday evening in her home in the Los Angeles area.

Reese’s representative, Lynda Bensky, said in a statement to CBS News, “The world has lost a huge talent. A successful actor, singer, writer and more for decades. She was also a trailblazer … Her cup was never half empt y … and it wasn’t half full … it was overflowing with goodness and love for everyone. She was the most consistently positive and optimistic person I have known.”

Bensky added that Reese touched so many people with her positivity. “That was the gift she gave you when you were in her company,” she wrote. “She truly personified being ‘Touched By An Angel.'”
