Slavery According To The Doctor

1-I am thoroughly disheartened by the remarks of Ben Carson who somehow thinks slavery was a good thing and that they came to this country voluntarily on a pleasure cruise.  This is no accident that he was picked by 45 and the darling of white folk because he will any do any foolish the to advance the white supremacy agenda. They say and claim he is a brilliant neurosurgeon and that he detached a pair of twins, after his remarks on slavery I highly doubt this at all. Besides if he had done something so remarkable; he would have said so himself. I have not heard him say anything that makes any sense at all.

Nonetheless, I am sure he has heard the rumor that white folk kidnapped black people from Africa, put these people of color on ship and brought them to America in the most horrible conditions to be used for free as a beast of burden. So to the so-called Dr. slavery is in the strictest sense of the term, any system in which principles of property law are applied to people, allowing individuals to own, buy and sell other individuals, as a de jure form of property. A slave is unable to withdraw unilaterally from such an arrangement and works without remuneration.

Many scholars now use the term chattel slavery to refer to this specific sense of legalized, de jure slavery. In a broader sense, however, the word slavery may also refer to any situation in which an individual is de facto forced to work against his or her will. Kinda like today’s prison system. Scholars also use the more generic terms such as unfree labor or forced labor, to refer to such situations. This clown must know that a slave his ancestors and mine were bought here against their will in this deplorable situation as a slave from the time of their birth, capture, or purchase.

Even though slavery is now outlawed in every country that is if you don’ count the millions in prison; the number of slaves today is estimated between 12 million and 29.8 million by most historians. Yet, this guy calls them immigrants! This character is the most disgusting form of a person in my opinion! Make no mistake he said this to lend a sense of normalization to the wretchedness of the practice and to appease the white folk he is trying so desperately to gain favor with or as we would say to be a good “House Negro”! His statement flies in the face of what even a fifth grader knows!

Carson perpetuates the false narrative of America as a land of opportunity where everyone came of their own free will. The so-called American Dream has been a nightmare for those who were enslaved by this America. All I can say is that you beware of false narratives this guy is as delusional as his Master. And that is my thought provoking perspective…

Commentary: Dr. Ben And Politricks

FotoFlexer_Photo 1Let me begin this commentary by saying the challenge in the clown car, Republican candidates, is as simple as many of their  hypocritical positions. They bred this crop of people by way of their racist so-called Christian Conservatives beliefs, and, of course – the Tea Party! By the way, these groups are nothing more than an updated version of the Citizens Council of the past; in other words, the political arm of the Klan.

This is why it is so disturbing to me that Dr. Ben Carson appears to be so prominent among white folk. Let’s face it he has no more chance of being president than the man in the moon! Did he not learn nothing from Herman Kane! These folk only want a puppet and it is shameful that a man of his supposed intelligence should know better than to fall into this trap or should I say “sold-out”! He should be smart enough to know what a “house negro” is, rather he seem to betray his dignity in doing so.

He embarrassed himself badly over the weekend when he said on “Meet The Press”; he opposed having a Muslim serve as president of the United States. He went on to say that Islam was not “consistent” with the Constitution. In his view, he said, perhaps it is alright with him that perhaps a Muslim could serve in Congress under certain circumstances. Does this fool know that the Constitution for which he speech says, he is only 3/5th human? In other words, he is not human, an animal!

That’s outrageous, but it’s not so far out of the mainstream for what most Republican presidential contenders riding in this year’s clown car believe. It seems ironic that most of his base agrees with him; given that nearly half of Republican voters think Dr. Carson’s insane remark believe it has already happened with Obama. More shocking is that at least 43 percent of GOP voters or more mistakenly think President Barack Obama is a Muslim, according to recent polls. This is like saying Jeb is the smart Bush!

I think it is fair to thank Donald Trump for the persistence of that bit of misinformation. Prior to the last presidential election, he drew quite a bit of attention for claiming the Hawaii native Mr. Obama was a Muslim born outside the United States. Trump was wholly responsible for causing the president to produce his birth certificate. Obviously, Trump is sticking with it, by refusing to correct a questioner during a recent New Hampshire campaign event; who asserted that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.

Let’s get back to Dr. Carson’s Sunday gaffe; it was so egregious that it drew rebukes from the likes of Ted Cruz. Honestly, when this guy thinks you are out of bounds and wrong you know you have “F’ed up”! Frankly, the problem is that these “holier than thou” Republicans speak the same language as ancestors did during slavery. It was God’s law! The truth of the matter, the Constitution bans a religious test for public office, and this country claims to be about religion freedom.

I believe it was Kennedy who said, “I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accepts instruction on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials; and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all”. 1960 speech to Protestant ministers

This somehow is not practical for white America, by and large, which means those words seem to have gotten lost in the media, like the Sunday morning talk show studios and political rallies, town halls, and places like in Rowan County, Ky. What these nuts are saying is “do as I say and believe it is gospel. This insanity tramples the cherished Constitution they claim to hold so dearly.

Today it’s Muslims, gays or transgender individuals who are the target of the bigotry, and yes black folk too. They would want to deny the rights of American citizens like they did to people from Africa, the Native American’s, Japanese and the Mexicans people. Carson should be smart enough to know, as well as his Republican cohorts, such extreme religious views are hypocritical at best, and Nazi-like at worse! He should also know that this bigotry is not limited to Islam. First, it was the Native Americans, the stolen slaves from Africa, and everybody else but white people.

Religious bigotry is as bad as racial bigotry and worst when it comes from a black man, which is like the pot calling the kettle black. Now that Dr. Carson has demonstrated his disdain for religious freedom, my question is “what kind of disdain does he have for himself”?

Dr. Carson, they don’t care about you! Then maybe they do, after all, they replaced Justice Marshall with Clarence Thomas! I think I can speak for a large part of the black community and say we have much disdain for his house Negro status! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

The Black Face In The Clown Car

1004795_10201334073855180_857894681_nIt is time for America to get knee deep in the madness that is to elect a replacement for President Obama. Hence, the “clown car” is loading with every right-wing nut and conservative from the other side vying for a seat raising their ugly head, which is nothing more that code for Klan like thinking. It should not be a surprise because the last election proved how that there are many supporters for some of these people. Frankly, it’s a bit scary.

Every so often, in fact, they find some Negro who has gone beyond anything rational when it comes to the African American Diaspora. This time they found a so-called good Negro in a noted doctor or should I quote Malcolm and say “House Nigger” to run. Let me be clear, I am for anyone who has something to offer and I say that notwithstanding that the GOP has shown they do not. Then they prop-up the good doctor to be one of the clowns on their side.

One of the big-time Republican donors said that President Obama was “the most dangerous man in America”, which seems to be this guys talking points. Personally, I hope this guy’s political career will have a short lived. Frankly, he is the kind of person Dr. Carter G. Woodson wrote about in the “Mis-Education of the Negro”; where he so eloquently said, “If there is “no back door,” he will make one”.

Can I say the good doctor is ignorant of history, I will, because “those who forget the past are bound to repeat its mistakes”. I will remind the good doctor of the fate of a few Republicans that came before him like the ghosts of Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, Michael Steele or J.C. Watts who were dismissed when they were no longer useful.

These Negro’s and I meant to use that term, chooses to place great emphasis on being a “conservative.” Must remember that there were and are very influential members of the Ku Klux Klan and other terror groups like the Red Shirts, Knights of the White Camelia and White Citizens Council, many of which wore white sheets and did dreadful things to our people.

Let’s take Cain, for example. One of Cain’s shortcomings was that he came on the scene swinging with statement like Blacks who voted Democratic were “brainwashed” and that thirty-five percent of Blacks were ready to vote for him. Then he boldly proclaimed the Koch brothers were his “brothers by another mother.” How did that work out for him? He now resides in the forgotten piles of useless Black Republicans.

Let’s look at another example, Michael Steele former Chairman of the Republican National Committee. When the Republican Party could not settle on a leader after several rounds of voting, the GOP tried the Ol’ Willie Lynch strategy that was to pit him against President Obama. What better way to bring down the Black man from the lofty position of leadership than to sic another Black man against him. Doctor that is the role you are playing to get your seat in the clown car.

Again, this Negro came out swing; “I will engage the Black Community”. The shame in this is; when some of the most vile criticisms and racist characterizations were leveled against President Obama. These guys don’t have the guts to say, “Wait a minute this is out of bounds!” Instead, he/they join the gang and often louder then the rest. I have a good idea how this story will turn out for him.

Then there is Ol’ Uncle Thomas, who was nominated to the Supreme Court replacing the only Black man to sit on the Court. As a Republican, many people believed Thomas was not really a replacement for the Liberal Thurgood Marshall, who was instrumental in the historic 1954 Brown v. Board of Education case in which the Supreme Court ruled that segregation was illegal and unconstitutional.

Let me remind you this is the guy who appears to be sleeping on the bench and said during his confirmation hearing that it was a “high tech lynching.” He went to work; siding with some of the most Conservative rulings imaginable. Let’s see how kind history is to him.

How about J.C. Watts who, and I will only admit this once, I liked. He was young, articulate and good looking; presumably with a great future in the Republican Party. Didn’t seem to work out so well or let me just say he was soon “retired” and only trucked out to make a comment about some insignificant issue? Do these guys sound like Allen Keys, Ward Connelly, or any number of others used by the GOP? Ray Charles, who was blind and dead, can see fault in their position. Maybe thirty pieces of silver is worth more to them than it is to me.

Being reminded of their need for a sort of Spook who sat by the Door; well, they got one because he is speaking their language so they can bankroll his candidacy. I know he thinks of himself as some kind of supreme patriot! With that said, let me end this pitiful assessment of what is to come by saying “Negro Please!” And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
