  1. Just dropped in to get a whiff of what's going on here since I made my last departure, an exit that deferred to my aversion for being around those I can't stomach. And what a good decision that was. OMG! I can only gasp at how the vibe here has become even more irritating. 'Felt like I had stumbled into a FOX "News" echo chamber, reeking with the gospel of right wing half truths, and rampant with hysterical conspiracy theories involving the ubiquitous "they". But - before I provide further material for possible rebukes from Mzuri in her self-appointed role as the Sergeant-at-Arms of this forum, ever ready to lecture those who don't conform to the protocols she has taken the liberty to put in place, - let me assure that i am aware no one really gives a damn what I think. (And I don't give a damn that nobody doesn't give a damn.) Now, as I was saying... mulling over what's going on here, i've reached the conclusion that this mind boggling phenomenon called CIVILIZATION, in its infinite journey, lurches forward doing what it has always done in an environment teeming with natural and manufactured marvels; visible and invisible dangers. And because it is the nature of the bi-ped beast evolution has spawned, humanity engages in an eternal conflict that pits the "have's" against the "have-not's", and the "already-are's" against the "wanna-be's", dumping them into a horde of "never will-be's", leaving everyone to expect freedom and justice for all. Foolish dreamers - idiots upon whom the abused Earth will eventually take its revenge. Welcome to the real world. Ah, but every poster here clings to their own version of the truth about the "real" world where the ongoing clash between the bad "them" and the good "us" wages on. And each opinionated contributor is eager to advance political narratives or embrace deep state conspiracy theories. As if a government controlled by an evil cabal has to plot something that Mankind naturally does on its own, as if what is happening now is not just another rehearsal for the highly anticipated Armageddon extravaganza, as if there was never a bubonic plague, no unrest nor revolts among the masses, no power hungry despots nor upheavals of the status quo. As if there has never been the fall of Great Empires, as if societies and cultures don't recycle and go through eras and periods wherein the more things change the more they become the same, all under the direction of a Universe with a wicked sense of humor! Ha-Ha. The joke's on us as Fate mocks our hopes and Father Time yawns, bored by the repetition of the proverbial phoenix rising from its ashes. And Life goes on as Civilization survives. But all is not yet lost on this site, and in spite of it having become a haven for Democrat bashers, and a coop full of paranoid "Chicken Littles" beaned by acorns and panicked into thinking "the sky is falling, there is a calm voice of reason in this cyber wilderness, a someone exhibiting logic, and balance. Thank "goodness" for my boy, Troy, who neutralizes the histrionics and relegates others to wallow in the factoids of their misinformation. Happy New Year, ol buddy. Hang in there. And, oh yeah. Fuck Retrumpican obstructionists!

  2. ProfD I’m afraid if we owned all the means of production and distribution of our entertainment, we would succumb to the same market forced White folks do and produce simulator or even worse material. “blackploitationfilms, 1970s sitcoms, gangster rap, black reality shows,…” are all are easy to create and make money. people who produce culturally important entertainment usually struggle. Are there any recent counter examples?

  3. The entertainment industry dictates everything from Hattie McDaniel in "Gone with the Wind" to blackploitation films, 1970s sitcoms, gangster rap, black reality shows, etc. AfroAmericans have to own studios, distribution companies, movie theaters, TV channels, radio stations, etc., in order to control the art they produce and narrative. As long as AfroAmericans are signing contracts and taking out loans to produce art, they're at the mercy of the money folks.

  4. @daniellegfny In defense, many black people don't like superfly or sweetback. I can comprehend why they didn't, they do not, and they will not. Danielle, I know you know that for a time our forebears were enslaved to whites. But, doesn't that mean black people have the freedom to interpret the usa as they want? MAny of our forebears didn't want to be part of this country. I am not saying all. But no one can deny many black people forced from their home an ocean away, didn't want the trip, and died not getting what they wanted. Freedom from white people/the colonies of britian or the usa that came after it. So, in modernity, I don't see why any of us have a problem with some black people having an extremely different opinion to the arts , let alone anything else, when it isn't like our forebears planned for us to be here.

  6. Orthodox Jews live it up on Welfare Is Nels White? Because these wildly errant assertions have been proffered by White racists for decades. I've read them so many times in online forums. Well, Nels, I am sorry to inform you that Blacks do not commit more crimes than other ethnic groups. Blacks are simply arrested in greater numbers by law enforcement and often, false testimony and evidence has been employed to imprison them for long terms. The news media, especially, when it's local, will always highlight and exploit criminal acts supposedly committed by Blacks. I guess Nels never heard of the Innocence Project. The views that emanate from this poster's mind reminds me of the nonsense from White racists I contended with for years on countless online Conservative forums. They too, always made mention of Black Crime, which is kind of hilarious since more than 86% of murdered Whites are killed by other White people, according to the Justice Dept. But folks like Nels only want to grouse about killings in Black communities. it's all because for White conservatives and the Blacks who love them, Black people are the main problem. As long as Blacks who love Trump and hate Democrats can frame the debate in terms of Black crime, Black drug addiction, Black families and Black pathology it means they can ignore the spree killers, family massacres, drug addiction and criminal pathology among White people. These days, about half of Blacks suspects arrested for allegedly committing violent crimes are mentally ill, off their meds, delusional and should have be in institutions, not on the streets. Blacks support phony politicians, according to Nels? Has anybody been reading the latest news about Donald Trump? How this racist clown conspired to thwart the will of the people in the 2020 election? And some on here are forever beating up on the Democratic Party. I cannot believe I am reading such racist lies in the year 2022. And in a Black discussion forum. Yeah, White racists who were Democrats in the 19th Century birthed the Ku Klux Klan and did many horrible things. In fact, White racists were known as Dixiecrats right up until the time of LBJ. The major parties switched racial ideologies during the late 1960's and early 1970's. I thought most Black people knew this. If Nels is indeed Black, pray for this individual who appears full of self-hate. I had only one issue with Maxine Waters. Her urging to harass political opponents while they are out in public. I thought her view was criminal, illogical and dangerous and still believe so. Black people are outnumbered in the U.S. And many of our White detractors own guns and it's no secret that those who endorse the hatred of many Republicans hope and pray they get to use them against us. Nel's vituperative diatribe against Black people also includes this insulting lie: That Black people VOLUNTARILY rely on government assistance to survive. As if Orthodox and Russian Jews do not. As if Chinese immigrants in New York City do not. In Brooklyn, N.Y., the Chinese community offered year round classes for their people to teach them how to receive Social Service money. Russian Jews became wealthy by taking advantage of welfare payouts while running businesses behind the scenes. There are entire Orthodox Jewish towns in Orange County, N.Y., such as Kiryas Joel, where nearly 90% of the residents receive welfare. Go talk to Black residents of these areas and you will discover that I am telling the truth. Does Nels not understand there is no longer a lifetime reliance on social service assistance in many states? That many on welfare have to work? That many are forced to undergo drug testing? Not so for members of "favored" groups. They get to do what they want, including secretly owning companies, hiding outside income, using their homes and other properties and declaring these sites of religious teaching? This means they don't have to pay taxes. Yet, Nels wants to attack Black people? Is this person a plant? An undercover racial terrorist? It is individuals such as Nels and those who like their comments who are dooming Black people. Because they are not helping at all. But they are hurting us. Not all Blacks are criminals. Not all Blacks are uneducated. It is a sin that some Blacks advance a bit, then seek to slam the door on others desperately trying to better themselves. Such folks are cowards, totally afraid to face new competition and talent. Isn't that why Whites kept Blacks out of professional sports leagues for so long? They were terrified Blacks were better. And many of us were. https://forward.com/opinion/382944/lakewood-welfare-fraudsters-prove-jews-are-on-the-white-side-of-law/

  8. @Cynique, happy new year. I'm glad you popped in to check on the gallery. @Troy definitely tries to maintain levity around here. As always, I give him props for giving us this space to grumble, complain, theorize, pontificate, etc. This forum is like a barbershop or salon or any other place folks show up to talk about current events, politics, religion, sports, etc. Differing views and opinions can lead to interesting dialog. Sometimes, it can be constructive and/or educational. Regardless, there's nothing new under the sun. Shooting the breeze on a forum defnitely won't change the arc of the universe.

  12. @richardmurray, thanks for posting this thread. If I can emphasize a salient point here... white American private schools, colleges and universities are the epicenter of networking to maintain white supremacy. There is a reason that piece of paper from an Ivy League school carries so much weight. It has little or nothing to do with brain power and everything to do with connections. H8ll, George Bush went to Yale. Black folks should be using their institutions of higher learning in a similar manner. Network and make strategic alliances. Not just to get a piece of paper and have to beg a dumb white supremacist for a job.

  13. Cynique, Some of the comments I come across on here are really pitiful. So much anti-Black sentiment from people who claim to be Black. Unsubstantiated charges, repeats of decades old anti-Black tropes and a whole lot of ignorance of recent history. I am beginning to become convinced that some of these Trump supporters look at this lying, racist and clown as their god. They need to worship Massa Trump so they can be told whom to hate, whom to insult and how to grovel if they are ever going to be acceptable to him. I am not sure this is the case with all of them. But I bet a few have a secret desire to be pointed to the fields so they can live out their true dream as a subservient toady to a man they deem superior.

  14. Richard Murray, the images are portraits, not photos. I have taken and shot hundreds and hundreds of photos. As well as at least 20 weddings and countless parties, baby showers and other events. But a photographic portrait is quite different. This type of photography entails conception, discussion and finally, cooperation between a shooter and a model.

  15. I taught myself Portrait Photography and collaborated with many a Black photographer as well as models of all stripes. I did not limit myself to only Black because beauty as well as art, can be everywhere. News Writing and Editor was my profession. Teaching my passion. Photography was a hobby that over a decade and half eventually morphed into a part time business. However, I really preferred charity, volunteering and aiding the homeless.

  16. The Democrats are about to get their backsides waxed in this year's midterm elections. Several mistakes are to blame and most are unforced errors. 1) Too many Black people remain ignorant of what Critical Race Theory actually is. It's not Black History, although many well-meaning Black folks claim that it is. And sadly, they cling to this errant view on social media. But Critical Race Theory is NOT Black History, which is a collection of truths and facts. Theories are simply suppositions. I will maintain that CRT is taught only at the university level not in grade, intermediate or any high schools. The problem lies in that few have come up with a ONE SENTENCE description of exactly what Critical Race Theory is. Most who try to explain it employ 50-cent word verbiage which average readers in the U.S. have a hard time understanding since most read at a 7th and 8th grade level. Others dance around it claiming: "Oh, it's been around for 40 years and such and such.” Long-winded explanations do little to clear the air. So, I fashioned a one-sentence retort that can be shoved in the face of CRT detractors. Because the GOP and its supporters have been killing us on messaging while we've gleefully surrendered the intellectual landscape by choosing to scream dumb chit such as "Defund the Police!" Oh, yeah, what a winning slogan that was. Here is my one sentence description of CRT: Critical Race Theory is a premise that posits skin color and race determine the outcomes of most decisions, laws and behavior in the U.S. That's it! That is the one sentence description. And this one line should have been tossed back at those White racists who have been skewering us with attacks on the social term "woke." This is why we have lost the Messaging War. And CRT is going to be used by millions upon millions of racist and angry Whites, Latinos and some Blacks to clobber the Democrats at the polls in November. 2) Refusal to acknowledge Bernie Sanders' push for so-called Democratic Socialism has failed miserably. Far too many folks are still drunk on Bernie's Kool-Aid. I keep running into folks who swear the solution to everything is Socialism. As if this canard of economic belief has been successful in any modern society or nation. However, by listening to this aged clown Bernie, AOC and her merry band of knuckleheads threw in all their social wants and desires into the Build Back Better bill, completely guaranteeing that no one, except maybe Kim Jong-Un, would go for it. The bill had to be reworked a few times before the House took a vote. That's why it failed. BBB contained too too much, would cost too much and proved far too ambitious for most legislators and pundits. But you can't tell Bernie Bots anything. They truly believe they were sent from on high to rule. Yeah, okay. In addition to having a new Voting Rights Bill fail, Black people are now going to have to contend with even more Red states preparing their own voter suppression laws. Gotta hand it to all those dumb-azz 2016 third party voters. By denying Hillary Clinton their votes, they enabled Trump to squeak by in enough states to win him the White House. I doubted Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would have survived the first term of whomever won in 2016. She didn't. And this gave Trump a chance to appoint three toadies to the Supreme Court. I believe more than 10% of Bernie Bots voted for Trump in 2016. Some news outlets peg it higher. Even if most return to the Dems this year, we're still going to lose in November. Bernie supporters likely put Trump over the top

  18. After seeing what the Democrats were doing to America(ns) election after election after election, I bolted from the party decades ago and never looked back, watching a fatigued and suffering black America (- that wouldn't listen, succumb to the Democrat's gaslighting -), in the rear view mirror. As a former election official in (then) a major metropolitan area, I can tell you with 100% certainty that Bernie supporters didn't put Trump over the top. Trump won outright. "Red states preparing their own voter suppression laws" | No - voter and election integrity efforts and laws are not voter suppression. Until black America wakes up and realizes that it has been taken to the cleaners since the creation of the Ku Klux Klan-founding Democrat party, it will continue to suffer through the misery of being marginalized and taken for granted as nothing more than minstrelized suckers chasing a wrinkled $100 bill in the wind across a busy highway, while blindfolded.

  19. @Chevdove One point, about the support for said law in nyc. you have to comprehend, nyc has a larger percentage of recent immigres than any other city in the usa by a wide margin. So you have to comprehend, most city councils in the usa don't have any interest for a law like this, but nyc is a unique city, not just in size, but its makeup. For example, washington d.c. itself has a large black population, who are in the descendent of enslaved mold, but the virginia counties outside washington d.c. are filled with immigrants, but many of these immigrants are financially above the immigrants who are in nyc , who are usually from more financially poorer means. then you look at a los angeles. los angeles is the second largest city in the usa, but the mexican populace in los angeles is a majority of the latin american community and they tend to be very wary of recent immigrants, while nyc's latin american populace is the most multigeographic of a latin american communit in the usa, you have colombians/nicaraguant/s paraguayans/peruvians/ et cetera, the mix means less a singular focus as in los angeles and the asian community in nyc is also not led by the chinese american community in the way los angeles has a huge chinese american community that dictates more and is less prone to this law. so.. the uniqueness of nyc's makeup has a role to play in this.

  20. You're 100% correct. The prison industrial complex has also become a mental health institution. Mentally ill folks are free to roam certain communities until they commit a crime. Then, they're locked up and released back into the community once time is served. Rinse and repeat. I saw this coming down the pike back in the 1990s.

  21. I actually DO care about what people say. Some folks on here make some incredibly valid points. And some of them alert others to events and issues they may be unaware of. Yeah, we all have opinions and viewpoints. But that does not mean we should malign each other or engage in feuds. I am Democrat and have been since the days of Gerald Ford. I am not a Bernie fan and view him solely as a chief divider of those on the Left. (Not to mention a really grumpy loser). Maybe what is missing is a true humor column that bears some connection to current events. Because honestly, that's all I'm interested in. Oh, and NFL football. That's still on free TV.

  28. Happy Birthday to Marcus Garvey Considering Marcus Garvey saw the caribbean or north america during his life as places that Black people needed to get away from, when you think of the struggles/challenges/unhappiness in Black Americans <Blacks or Negras from Canada/USA/MExico/JAmaica/HAiti/Dominican Republic/Puerto Rico/Trinidad/Colombia/Venezuela/Brazil/Chile/Argentina or any other land in the American continent> in the American Continent, was MArcus Garvey proven right about the inefficacy of Black people living side Whites? Side the best efficacy of Blacks when they live mostly around Blacks? And today happens to be MArtin Luther King Jr Day I quote MArtin Luther King Jr the third concernng voting rights legislation ""he would be greatly disappointed in the leadership in the Senate...that it's chosen so far not to get this done"" MLK the Third either is using very well constructed language or doesn't know his father. Disappointment today refers to an unfulfilled desire or want. Not, to remove from office. if MLK the third is suggesting MLK jr. will desire senators be disappointed. I 100% concur to that. MLK jr. always said in words how dysfunctional the class of elected officials are to the improvement of the populace in the U.S.A. If MLK the third is suggesting MLK jr. desired or thought the congress of the usa will act in the betterment of voting rights, Ihe doesn't know his father. MLK jr. wasn't an elected official for a simple reason. That path doesn't lead to the freedom leaded to tell the truth, to lead the people when what has to be said can't be a lie. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the battle of Hayes-Pond. https://www.lumbeetribe.com/ Happy birthday Sade Nothing can come between us- For the distant lovers The Sweetest Taboo- For the secret lovers Love is stronger than Pride - For the long time lovers <NEar my favorite Sade song, though I don't have a clear favorite> Smooth operator- For the players Is it a crime- for the mistresses or ladies of the evening out there And just so you know, Sade's early videos had an interwoven story about her and a guy if you notice:)

  29. That is the essence of my entire practice. I have turned the feeling of a thing into a description of its quality. You are an unconscious psychic and a conscious mystic. In my way of thinking you have a logical mind. Which makes your thinking first rate. However your feelings while being harder to articulate, give you a sense of understanding. So I believe that if you have a hard time defining a feeling it will guide you to a solution which involves it's resolution. I have been going deeper into my esoteric rabbit hole. I can count on one hand the people that can even remotely relate to it. You are one of the five. You are a wonderful blend of the Solar and the Lunar. To me you are the Logical Poet.

  36. The Wu-Tang Clan said it best..."cash rules everything around me..." I'm just as guilty of stopping at the gas pump, looking at the ridiculous price and filling up my truck. Same goes for the prices I see in the grocery store. I just shake my head and spend the money. A few months ago, when there was a cyber attack on the computer system controlling the east coast gas pipeline, the media told us the disruption would lead to a price increase at the pump and fuel shortages. Nevermind that before computers existed, we knew how to get gas from one place to another just fine. On cue, panic buying made it happen. When the pandemic started, there was a run on food, toilet paper, bottled water, Lysol, bleach, cleaning supplies, masks, etc. I've never known Americans to be so hungry or sh8tty or clean in my half century on the planet. Panic buying. Now, we have supply shortages and empty shelves and price gouging. Rinse and repeat. So, I wouldn't be surprised if they used a Ukrainian invasion to jack up prices on natural gas and everything else. They aren't doing it out of necessity. It's only because they can get away with it.

It’s because out society has advanced so much that people are easy to be offended and not realize how bad conditions were at the time Roosevelt lived. The questions could be. “Why was the Black man and Red man included?” “What message was the sculptor trying to portray?” I concur. Which makes people parrot Sidney Poiter was the first Black America to win an Oscar, when it was Hattie McDaniels for her role in Gone With The Wind.

  43. Facts. Being white is their pre-existing condition and the privileges that come with it. Whites do not have to navigate the obstacles of race as it relates to their progress and success in life. Whites do not have to meet the same qualifications and standards they impose on non-whites when it comes to opportunities. White supremacy provides a power that allows whites to focus on everything else because their skin color is never a liability. Being white is an asset.

  45. I did not write “significant” but it has had a negative impact on life expectancy wouldn’t you agree? The centers for disease control reported on this last year. Other contributors to the decline in life expectancy includes an increase and overdose deaths. True, but why ignore the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people who could have been saved with a simple vaccine? the risk of dying from Covid unvaxxed is much higher than dying from a blood clot from the vaccine … that is just math. you know the science behind these vaccines not invented yesterday; decades of research was already done. you should read this article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sciencenews.org/article/covid-coronavirus-vaccine-development-speed/amp it with help you understand how the vaccine was approved so quickly. Black people have already died, disproportionately, in huge numbers. Almost a quarter million Africans have died from Covid. More than 100,000 black Americans have died from the disease. How people gloss over these death figures boggles the mind.

  46. Pioneer1, snippets like this just diminish the value and potency of the message you're trying to convey. The Great Reset is not a hoax or a conspiracy theory, but it appears that the gaslighters (who either are or may be in your head), have succeeded in obfuscating the simplicity of what the elitists and globalists are trying to achieve. In a nutshell, this reset has been underway long before the death of JFK, but it has now picked up a head of steam because of (2) Davos, China, the Democrats, the Left, and the Marxists, socialists and communists who have been licking their chops and salivating over the (1) dumbing-down of America. Liberals and Democrats alike look at the general (average) (liberal) U.S. black population as nothing more than uneducated + under-educated + uninformed + low information + low IQ + race-sensitive suckers, and that wide swath of the population just can't see that it's being used, royally. Thus, the race catalyst has been elevated to the point of optimum mental and social manipulation. The people who are pursuing and driving the (real) Great Reset are sucking the common sense right out of the black mind at light speed. Remember, the globalists and corporate America are more interested in separating from your money, freedom and sanity, as opposed to adding real tangible, exponential and sustainable value to your life. "Because I'm LOOKING FORWARD to a Global Reset, to be honest." | If you're truly looking forward to a global reset, then you are in for a really nasty surprise. The New World Order that you are thinking about is one that will put you and those you love at the bottom of the ladder for what could potentially be an eternity. Perhaps you might want to step back, do a deep dive, and research the many facets of geopolitics, global finance, big tech, the manipulative climate change hoax, social engineering, the (real) history of the Democrat party, sovereign nations, (mainstream) media messaging, and a host of other pertinent subjects. The goal here is to develop the intellectual curiosity, acuity, capacity, gravitas and honesty, that will be necessary in order to navigate the storm that's coming.

In American the deletion of history is a relativity new occurrence, at least at the speed it is moving, as - compared to the dumbing down process that has been in full swing for at least three generations in varying degrees and served up on a multitude of platforms… some overt, others covert… at the whim of the Global Power Elite/Deep State." = = = https://wakeup-world.com/2016/10/24/the-deliberate-dumbing-down-of-america-7-ways-the-ruling-elite-are-making-us-dumber/ "If you want to hijack a planet, what could be a better way of doing it than by controlling the populace without them ever knowing?

  47. Thanks so much Richard for your response. You make a good point that goes to the heart of the contradiction in American history. The genocide of indigenous people and enslavement of blacks were conscious collectively racist acts by people who built a legal and constitutional framework around individualism. In a sense racism is systemic even collective yet it enables white people to view themselves and function as individuals. They then deny the systemic problem and black experience.
