Take a minute to check out the whole video and peep the ending. What does it say to you? Yesterday I had finished a book for the second time in several years that not only reminded me that Amerikka and for the most part, planet earth is being used as a prison colony by those who envision a world for themselves without too much dark matter people (the still need some to serve them tea and draw their bath), too much poor and indigenous peoples on ancestral land to interfere with his–Yurugu’s”— raping of the natural resources. Below is an image and description of the book
Written in solitary confinement, Kody Scott’s memoir of sixteen years as a gangbanger in Los Angeles was a searing best-seller and became a classic, published in ten languages, with more than 300,000 copies in print in the United States alone. After pumping eight blasts from a sawed-off shotgun at a group of rival gang members, twelve-year-old Kody Scott was initiated into the L.A. gang the Crips. He quickly matured into one of the most formidable Crip combat soldiers, earning the name “Monster” for committing acts of brutality and violence that repulsed even his fellow gang members. When the inevitable jail term confined him to a maximum-security cell, a complete political and personal transformation followed: from Monster to Sanyika Shakur, black nationalist, member of the New Afrikan Independence Movement, and crusader against the causes of gangsterism. In a document that has been compared to The Autobiography of Malcolm X and Eldridge Cleaver’s Soul on Ice, Shakur makes palpable the despair and decay of America’s inner cities and gives eloquent voice to one aspect of the black ghetto experience today.
I presume this book didn’t get the same publicity of this one considering the hoopla surrounding Stanley Williams’ execution which was signed off by then governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, you beloved action hero.
“The true stories I’ve written in this book are my living nightmares. My greatest hope is that the lessons the stories offer will help you make better choices than I did.” Stanley “Tookie” Williams, co-founder of the notorious Crips gang, is a death-row inmate. But in his two decades of incarceration, Williams has also become a respected author and activist whose dedication to ending gang warfare in the lives of inner-city children has earned him a 2001 Nobel Peace Prize nomination. In this award-winning book which has drawn praise from educators, government leaders, and families alike. Williams describes the brutal reality of being an inmate. He debunks myths of prisons as “gladiator schools” with blunt, riveting stories of overwhelming homesickness, the terror of solitary confinement, and the humiliation of strip-searches. Williams’ words are a frank challenge to adolescent readers to educate themselves, make intelligent decisions, and above all, not to follow in his footsteps.
Below is a series of video proposing to give us an incite into the culture. Not the first, maybe not the most in depth, but it is instructive none the less.
In his book, Sanyika Shakur, while going through a period of African specific growth, embracing the world view of the New Afrikan movement, stated that the issue of gang banging can never be eliminated, due to the systemic foundation which promotes economic disparity in the country. He concluded that the elimination of this culture has to happen within. Numerous experts or people with deeper knowledge than I have stated similar sentiments and this was why many in the New Afrikan movement, within the culture itself and others, have indicated that they are not willing to eliminate gangs, just strive to redirect their energies towards overstanding that the biggest gang they should be fighting is not each other but the Us government and its local derivatives. In Toronto, Canada and other cities in the country, the rise of the culture is alarming for citizens who have never thought they would experience a Amerikkklan style culture of violence as currently observed in places like parts of californium, Chicago and other war zones. He also mentioned how he will be a Crip for life. This is something evident in how he went after Ice Cube in the above video. This shows you how being in this culture BECOMES WHO YOU ARE!!! In the book Monster, Shakur talks about tagging, or advertising the affiliation of the area you are passing through. This is a calling card to those of another affiliation that dares to seek expansion of their own territories. The result would be tit for tat aggression and retaliation, scoping up bystanders and non affiliates along the way. Today, many have moved from tagging to video. Where affiliations are advertise on Youtube, world star hip hop and even in the music industry.
The recent case of two individuals wanted for murder in Toronto, came to an unusual end when a surviving victim of their shooting spree, was able to identify them from a music video they put out. Apparently they were also aspiring rappers. Now if as Shakur stated that the “banging” has to be dealt with internally and as he said in the book, these young people (the females are just as involved as the males) are fighting over territories not of their own.
I believe the issue of gangs and gang banging for many young males and not just those from the dark matter population in America, is part of an innate desire to belong to a masculine brotherhood. In ancient times men get initiated in to brotherhood, orders, cliques and organizations where men associates with men in order to reinforce and develop their manhood and all that it entails. However in ancient times, these organizations, were geared towards ensuring that the young males replace the older ones as rulers and or productive entities in their societies, cities and culture. This was partially out of necessity to protect themselves and what they built from invaders or interlopers from outside. On this side of the world, though, since our entire culture, language, spirituality, mores and all that our ancestors stood for were taken from us and replaced with a foreign one, we have a paradox of wanting to act on that innate feelings with out any concrete way of realizing, developing and or realizing their innate desires.
For me this is one of the most important documentary one can see” BASTARDS OF THE PARTY: Listen carefully to how and why the issue of controlling and eliminating gangs of dark matter men, in Amerikka will never be a priority for the biggest gang bangers of all, the Amerikkklan government.
Bastards of the Party is a 2005 documentary film produced by Alex Demyanenko and directed by former Bloods gang-member Cle Sloan. The film explores the creation of two of Los Angeles’s most notorious gangs, the Crips and the Bloods, from the perspective of the Los Angeles community. The film also denounces gang violence and presents meaningful solutions from former gang-members to stop this problem.
The documentary appeared at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival and at the 2006 Hollywood Black Film Festival. The television premiere aired on February 6, 2007 on HBO. Over 90 percent of the documentary was shot in 1996.
Bastards of the Party explores various influences on California African-American gang culture. The starting point is the crisis of black leadership that marked the end of the civil rights movement, particularly the government-instigated rivalry between the Black Panther Party and the Us Organization. Movements based on collective action gave way to individualism inspired by heroes of blaxploitation films like Super Fly. In this atmosphere, Raymond Washington created the concept of a gang of the new generation that went from “the cradle to the grave” and was joined by Stanley “Tookie” Williams and Jamel Barnes in the formation of the Crips. The collapse of domestic industry left black youth with few opportunities to escape from gang activity, which became a money-making operation based around the illegal drug traffic.
