We’re not Americans, we’re Africans who happen to be in America. We were kidnapped and brought here against our will from Africa. We didn’t land on Plymouth Rock – that rock landed on us.
Malcolm X, Harlem, cited in Goldman, “The Death and Life of Malcolm X”, p.157
The jingoism spewed by Caucasians in America Inc. is disgusting for its better than you smell, but it dips even more dramatically when this same crap come from the mouth of America inc’s former chattels, children of prisoners of wars once legislated as 3/5th of human. These brutalized victims of genocidal attacks occupied a position in this society equal to the plantation, chicken cow and hogs, but below that of the domesticated wolf.
These are the same wolves that were used to hunt and tear apart so called run-a-ways, freedom seekers who dared to act as more than property.
“Sitting at the table doesn’t make you a diner, unless you eat some of what’s on that plate. Being here in America doesn’t make you an American. Being born here in America doesn’t make you an American.”
Malcolm X Speaks, 1965
The past several elections from Ronald (Ray-gun) Reagan to the current puppet on the throne has done nothing but highlight how much the impoverished rank and file and monied/powerful members of Americans would prefer the corporation to remain the exact way it was before it was dragged kicking a screaming into the 20th century. They want to keep America inc. “pure”, they want to go back to the “good old days”, all code word for not just European…but “white” meaning the Nordic embellishment of Adolph Hitler and his third Reich. For decades Africans in America have agitated low key for acceptance on an equal footing in this cauldron of hate. Regardless of the agitation of the NCAAP and all the other Khazaar inspired satellites set up to thwart the legitimate freedom aspiration of Africans in America Inc. The mantra of civil rights was used to interrupt the clarion call for hue-man rights. A call that both Malik Al Shabazz and Martin Luther King were prepared to go to the United Nation for and were both assassinated for. Human rights above politics and civic rights form the basis of revolution from time immemorial.
People involved in a revolution don’t become part of the system; they destroy the system… The Negro revolution is no revolution because it condemns the system and then asks the system it has condemned accepting them…
Malcolm X, Interview with A. B. Spellman, May 1964
“Power never takes a back step – only in the face of more power.”
Malcolm X Speaks, 1965
“We are not fighting for integration, nor are we fighting for separation. We are fighting for recognition as human beings. We are fighting for…human rights.”
Speech, Black Revolution, New York, 1964
One of the reason why blogs such as www.thestartigfive.net and
www.sportsonmymind.com are relevant is because the tackle the unstated or swept under the rug issues of anti-African hatred intertwined in sports in America Inc., that mainstream media refuse to tackle in depth and consistently. Note Canada is not absolved from the same, but being the less talented ugly step child, Canadian anti-African hatred is not often discussed, thus allowing that society to quietly slip the debris under the expensive British rug, while making acceptable excuses to the ignorant and sycophants.
But America Inc. does everything flamboyantly, arrogantly and energetically. This is also why the scrutiny seems more intense because they draw attention to themselves. In the case of Michael Vick, we have a clear separation from reality and is similar to the war on drugs in baseball using Barry Bonds as its poster child, just like OJ Simpson is the poster child of domestic abuse and Tiger Woods the poster child for marital infidelity and countless other Africoid looking men exemplifying what is wrong in this Sodom and Gomorrah. Three years after being questionable arrested and intimidated into confessing to gambling on and killing pit bulls, Michael Vick is seen his star rise again in the Negro Neutering League as a highly paid gladiator. The sick and unhappy people begrudges him his redemptive efforts even though along the way he was sucking spit and licking ass, just for the right to be invited to work for a living. Michael Vick volunteered to neuter himself, making abesience at the feet of power driven group of old Caucasian men fronted by their puppet bitch Roger Goodell.
Just like the Constitution of the Corporation the United States of America Inc., the 3/4th of man theory is entrenched consciously and subconsciously in the souls of many folks… unfortunately by our action, not just Caucasian folks. This is why during the period when a coke head and drunk can lead the most powerful country into invading a another just because “he tried to kill my daddy”, devastating millions and, millions to come, destabilizing neighbouring countries, while their proxy make believe state wages the other prong of a two prong war in North East Africa to usurp the culture and sovereignty of a people older than them. And why Michael Vick still pisses people off more than that Texas war criminal, who lied to a willing United Nations. The misplaced hatred and jealousy of Africans who excel at something you can’t do or your heroes can’t do, causes you Caucasian hater to still feel sick at the mention of his name, much less his image.
Tools like Lofgren are picked up off the trash heap of his-story to comment on some one more popular than him, trying to knock the African man off his well earned perch…even if it’s the middle ladder up from Hades.
“The day that the black man takes an uncompromising step and realizes that he’s within his rights, when his own freedom is being jeopardized, to use any means necessary to bring about his freedom or put a halt to that injustice, I don’t think he’ll be by himself.”
Oxford Union Society debate, December 3, 1964
“The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
“If you’re born in America with a black skin, you’re born in prison.”
Interview, June 1963
