Fight The Power!

PhotoFunia-2c3d3a4In the 1960s, the main mission was to obtain the freedom for black people. The symbol of solidarity was a raised clenched fist and the chant was “power to the people”. This sign of unity was also a sign of respect for one another.

It was a glorious time for Black America in the late 1960s because for a brief moment, it was awakened, they stand a stand and showed bravery as courageous black men and women demonstrate their pride for being black and began to acknowledge the greatness in their blackness.

During those days, there was an ill-fated war where the government drafted millions of black men during the Vietnam War. I can recall those fought and served were soon forgotten, but those who did were proud enough to take a stand by chanting “fight the power”! The response from the power, however, was told “America Love it or Leave it.” First, where were black people suppose to go? They took us from our place of origin, enslaved all brought here, and created a new race of people calling them Negro. So, the chant and the raised fist was a symbolic statement – “say it loud I am black, and I am proud”.

Looking back, I think what we learned was that the philosophy prescribed to us by the system and a continuous stream of unanswered questions and lies; like we see today with several wars, police brutality and blatant racism. The foundation of the civil rights movement was supported by a religious ideology full of unquestioned answers fooling people into the idea that all you need to do is just pray. While the system used the tried and true strategy of divide and conquer to kill the movement.

The movement’s protest strategy of marching in the 1950s resulted in a few crumbs after unrest and rage produce fear in the majority community – in other words among the powers that be. In those days, “they” could control information via what were virtually state-owned newspapers and the two or three television networks. The unrest of those days were rooted in racism, as is today, but today the genie is out of the bottle because of this thing called social media and video cameras in the hands of almost everyone. Think about it – it was social media that caused the Arab Spring uprising that toppled several regimes and dictators.

The American super-power was involved preaching morality and trying to impose democracy all over the world while doing unspeakable horrors at home and abroad. The government released a Senate Terror Report, which clearly appeared as if it was America that was the terrorist sponsored by the state. I will say as a person of color and a descendant of slaves, America never had any moral authority to advise or dictate anything close to a moral or human high-ground toward or for black people. Regarding what they released, black people have seen much of the same terror inflicted upon them right here at home under its apartheid-like system.

They system has not changed; NO – it’s still all about money. What I see that is different, however, is that the entire world sees and knows what is being done to black people in America and that what black America has been saying all along is true and a fact. However, the movement of this generation, Black Live Matters is speaking truth to power and is courageous enough to take a stand against racism and injustice. This movement comes with people of all stripes, colors, and creeds protesting around the world.

What we saw in the 1960s was more of a rehearsal for what some called a revolution. Brother Gil Scott-Heron called it “Winter in America” and he told us that the revolution will not be televised. There was a revolution, however, they called it the Arab Spring and it was televised! Gill appeared, at the time to be on to something. Hence, the government used tools like CONINTELPRO to cripple and killed any such notion. Now, as we can see today resulting from the atrocities of government agencies and police human-rights violations “the revolution is being televised”.

Let me add this about empires and religion, the Republicans, as did the Romans before them, cheered on the Lions, as the Christians were being fed to them in giant arenas for pure spectator enjoyment. Sort of like those lynching of black men and police killing of late. What these people are doing to black people in the streets of America in the name of “justice” is no different from what was done by the Roman state against its people. Remember how that turned out.

To those who have and are charged with killing and brutalizing people of color and the least of thee; I say to you – there’s no honorable way to kill, no gentle way to destroy. There is nothing good about racism or the war upon black and brown communities – it is simply Hypocrisy!

History tells us that those who make peaceful revolution impossible or fail to change a system when it is broken will make violent revolution inevitable. In the 1960s, they stopped using lynching and used fire hoses and dogs. Today, they use the police to shoot and kill. So I say, Fight the Power! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

The History Of Brown v Board

1-The racial history of America is sad and shameful, yet they continue to tell us how special and unique America is by repeating the same lie – “All men are created equal”. Most of America’s history, a black person had virtually no rights at all. However, the most egregious of them all was that a person of color could be killed for simply learning how to read or caught reading a book. The day of this ruling was one of the most important days in all of black history, except of course the slave’s emancipation!

It has been said that the South will rise again. As I look at America, it is rising with the help of the conservatives and other bigots. In fact, I say racism is alive and well. Back in the day, rather from the beginning of America, there was nothing more important to white folk of this ilk than restricting or denying education to black people; as it was against the law for the African to read. Jim Crow Laws enforced something they called “separate but equal” – better known as legal segregation. If you look at the numbers today, we are virtually in the same place regarding the current educational system in many places across the country as black people were back in the day. Also, they have virtually priced black people out of a college education.

It’s been over sixty years since the landmark Brown v Board of Education case successfully argued before Supreme Court of the United States that allow equality in education. This case changed the face of America in a way unlike any other decision before or since. Here’s the story of how that came to be.

The Brown Case, as it is known, was not the first such case regarding civil rights argued before the court. However, it was the most significant of what some would say was the final battle in the courts that had been fought by African American parents since 1849, which started with Roberts v. City of Boston, Massachusetts.

It is important to note that Kansas was the site of eleven such cases spanning from 1881 to 1949. With that said, I would like to take the opportunity to pay homage to the valor of a skillful attorney, Thurgood Marshall, who brilliantly won this case and more than fifty other cases before the Supreme Court – winning all of them.

The Brown case was initiated and organized by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) leadership who recruited African American parents in Topeka, Kansas for a class action suit against the local school board. The Supreme Court combined five cases under the heading of Brown v. Board of Education: Delaware, Kansas, South Carolina, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. The ultimate goal sought by the NAACP was to end the practice of “separate but equal” throughout every segment of society, including public transportation, dining facilities, public schools and all forms of public accommodations. The Case was named after Oliver Brown one of 200 plaintiffs.

The Brown Supreme Court ruling determined racial segregation in public education was unconstitutional in Brown I, the first opinion. The court’s implementation mandate of “with all deliberate speed” in 1955, known as Brown II. In 1979, twenty-five years later, there was a Brown III because Topeka was not living up to the earlier Supreme Court ruling, which resulted in Topeka Public Schools building three magnet schools to comply with the court’s findings.

As had been the case since Homer Plessy, the subject in Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896, when the U.S. Supreme Court decided that a Louisiana law mandating separate but equal accommodations for blacks and whites on intrastate railroads was constitutional. This decision provided the legal foundation to justify many other actions by state and local governments to socially separate blacks and whites.

Now that I have provided some history related to the case let me add my commentary. It has been said, “As sure as things change they remain the same”. First, it took 60 years to overturn Plessy with the Brown case, and it took “with all deliberate speed” 13 years for integration to begin fully. During this period from 1954 to 1967, Governors blocked school entrances and actually closed schools rather than comply with the law of the land. I am not going to touch on the violence that caused President’s to send the US Army and National Guard troops to schools in order to protect the safety of those the ruling was intended benefit as a result of the Brown decision.

Since then and over time many scams have been devised to disenfranchise minorities and African Americans in particular – need I remind you of “No Child Left Behind”. This brings us to where we are today. Schools are more segregated than at ever, poorly funded, dilapidated facilities, and a police presence to save, oftentimes, the kids from themselves. The dropout rate averages 2 to 1. These are just a few issues and by any measure of academic standards or common sense – is a failure.

Let’s make sure we understand that public education was not created to develop minds, rather it was intended to simply teach reading, writing, and arithmetic. It was created to maintain a permanent underclass. Maybe the word “class” is the operative word in all of this – the haves have, and the have not’s will have not. So as sure as things change they remain the same.

We must remember the ghosts of so many who fought and died for the principle that “education is the single most important ingredient necessary to neutralize those forces that breed poverty and despair.” Black History is American History! And that’s my Thought Provoking Perspective…

The Hypocrisy Of Democracy

001I had a Granddaddy that I loved more than life itself. This man was never formally educated, yet he was brilliant because he had a special wisdom that was common sense. I posted an article some time ago called “Granddaddy’s Lessons” where I shared some of the wisdom I learned from him. He used to recite some witty sayings as he guided me into manhood, like “even a fool makes sense sometimes” and my favorite was “never argue with a fool.” Rarely have I ever questioned “Pop’s” wisdom, but witnessing the behavior of many rooted in racism from today’s so-conservatives I am reminded of the once thought dead “Citizens Counsels.” But just as things change they remain the same. Today we have a man named Trump!

While growing up, my grandfather would shield me from the wretchedness and evils of racism. However, I was old enough to witness the brutality of peaceful demonstrations by black people on television in the early sixties begging for not just civil rights but human rights. This was to include things like the church bombing that killed four little girls, police attacking marchers with dogs, the trampling of black people on horseback on Bloody Sunday, beatings and assaulting black people with high-pressure water hoses.

I would ask Pops, why white people did those things to us. He would say, “Those acts were the lawlessness of the bigotry and hatred of us” and nothing more than the hypocrisy of democracy. Today, as I recall those dreadful horrors inflicted upon human beings of color for what they said was to uphold the “Law.” It seems eerily similar to the atmosphere and mentality of the time we now see in the world we live in today where the plan is still to eliminate our race.

Now that I have matured, I better understand that there is a philosophy that enables racism to exist. What we thought was removed from the consciousness of the American dogma was simply lying dormant. Therefore, in order to understand the current political environment that is affecting and polarizing society, we must ask the question; is what we see conservatism or racism? To answer that question; here is Webster’s definition of both words:

Conservatism: a disposition in politics to preserve what is established b: a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions, and preferring gradual development to abrupt change; specifically: such a philosophy calling for lower taxes, limited government regulation of business and investing, a strong national defense, and individual financial responsibility for personal needs.

Racism: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial difference produces an inherent superiority of a particular race. 2: racial prejudice or discrimination.

Congressman John Lewis, who was beaten nearly to death on Bloody Sunday was assaulted with racial epithets and spit on – on the steps of the Nation’s Capital, which is the symbol, supposedly, of the freest nation on earth. Bricks were thrown through windows, death threats and other threatening messages have been made to Congressman, Government Officials, and threats against the President are the norm. President Obama continues to receive an unprecedented amount of death threats, insulted with disrespectful caricatures and referred to as the Antichrist. I would say this in the manifestation of hatred that is pure evil.

There is talk of secession, remember how well that worked out, it was called the Civil War which had its roots in the concepts that are on display now. As a result of the changing face of America, less white, the Trump types espouse predictions of Armageddon because something, as they see it, has gone terribly wrong with the America. To which I suppose only means that it is trying to live up to the lie that it has lived; meaning “a government for the people and by the people.” It amazes me, after witnessing the Bush years and the last decade of GOP criminal rule that the people elected a house and senate full of more of the same.

In the eyes of Conservatives, things are turned upside down. They tell black people that they make everything racial. Yet, they scream we want to “take back our country.” Back to what “Slavery”! More disheartening and most distasteful is that there are still African America’s, “House Negroes,” who chime in supporting their beliefs like the Trump who wants to be president. It appears that he forgot this nation was never fair or just; with respect to black people. Worse yet, there are some “Uncle Tom’s” that think race is no longer an issue or can remember the regular lynchings during the time “they” say was so great.

Just like “Manifest Destiny” was devised to justify one race’s superiority. The Conservatives movement now led by Trump is rooted in the psychology of racism, and we know that involves pitting one against the other. The standard trick is to use a black person to be the face of a situation or any number of these sellout Christians preachers that reminds me of my uncle Thomas, who we call Tom.

America’s ardent belief in Democracy, particularly everywhere else in the world, is shocking because they are not practicing it on its own shores. They make every effort to deny its own citizens the right to vote. The NEOCONs and war hawks can find billions of dollar in an instant to send anywhere in the world, but it seems to have forgotten Detroit, New Orleans, and anything related to people of color or minorities. More disturbing, an unarmed black person is shot down in the street every day, and they do nothing. Rather, their focus is to help the rich and encourage more war.

Back in the day, when we protested, peacefully, they called us un-American. They told us to “love it or leave it” – “go back to Africa.” We never threatened the lives of others when blacks begged for civil rights. However, when government officials do nothing – in my opinion it is treason. Let’s remember that once upon a time, people that had this mentality thought slavery was sanctioned by “God” and good for America. These conservatives are not just racist but the “Axis of evil.” And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


As Spoken By The King

200x200In light of the horrible state of race relations in America today. We see many murders at the hands of the law, the unequal justice, the corrupt penal system that has become nothing more than the 21st century’s version of slavery, and the unfair economic challenges imposed upon black people in America. Black people have a right to be angry when they are blamed for their current conditions as if slavery, Jim Crow laws, “black codes” and the historical legacy of mistreatment by the system of white supremacy that has had a long-term and devastating effects on the Black community.

Dr. King was a shining example of bravery and left us with some powerful words before his death that we should recall today in these trying times where racism has boldly reared its ugly head. White Supremacy main purpose is to subjugate, use, and to eliminate people of color, which is to be for the benefit of white people.

Dr. King understood this which explains why most of has words have been sanitized, removed or reduced primarily to “I have a dream”. However, as I look at the state of black America today, this dream was more like a nightmare.

Here are some quotes “they” would never tell you about:

“I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today – my own government.”

“There is a magnificent new militancy within the Negro community all across this nation. And I welcome this as a marvelous development. The Negro of America is saying he’s determined to be free and he is militant enough to stand up.”

“You can’t talk about solving the economic problem of the Negro without talking about billions of dollars. You can’t talk about ending the slums without first saying profit must be taken out of the slums. You’re really tampering and getting on dangerous ground because you are messing with folk then. You are messing with captains of industry. Now this means that we are treading in difficult water, because it really means that we are saying that something is wrong with capitalism.”

“It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked ‘insufficient funds.’”

“We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. Frankly I have never yet engaged in a direct action movement that was ‘well timed,’ according to the timetable of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease of segregation. For years now I have heard the word ‘Wait!’ It rings in the ear of every Negro with a piercing familiarity. This ‘wait’ has almost always meant ‘never.’ We must come to see with the distinguished jurist of yesterday that ‘justice too long delayed is justice denied.’”

“The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists will we be? Will we be extremists for hate or for love? Will we be extremists for the preservation of injustice or the extension of justice?”

“If America does not use her vast resources of wealth to end poverty and make it possible for all of God’s children to have the basic necessities of life, she too will go to hell.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“If our economic system is to survive, there has to be a better distribution of wealth … we can’t have a system where some people live in superfluous, inordinate wealth, while others live in abject deadening poverty.”

“The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists, who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood. The trailblazers in human, academic, scientific and religious freedom have always been nonconformists. In any cause that concerns the progress of mankind, put your faith in the nonconformist!”

“Somebody told a lie one day. They couched it in language. They made everything Black ugly and evil. Look in your dictionaries and see the synonyms of the word Black. It’s always something degrading and low and sinister. Look at the word White, it’s always something pure, high and clean. Well I want to get the language right tonight. I want to get the language so right that everyone here will cry out: ‘Yes, I’m Black, I’m proud of it. I’m Black and I’m beautiful!’”

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

“I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro’s great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen’s Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: ‘I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action’; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man’s freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.’”

“Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”

“No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they’d die for.

Dr. King taught us a powerful lesson, which was the only way black problem could be solve was to boycott and starve the system through economics. If ever there was a time to wake up that time is now! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

 


A Simple Truth

007_1000

Freedom of speech and freedom of action are meaningless without the freedom to think. The problem here is that most of the world’s people are fed a study diet of lies to control their thinking. No other people have been more brainwashed that those of African descents to the point of near insanity. They tricked people into giving them the vote and made then think they are free. Meanwhile, the deceive those folks with a smile while gerrymandering districts to take away the vote.

Carter G. Woodson said in his epic novel The Mis-Education of the Negro that “if you control what a man is thinking you never have to worry about what he thinks”. This cultural group, black people, knows truth through the brutal experiences of history; yet believe His-Story and fail to realize his version of truth is nothing more than a deception.

To enforce its effectiveness they used what they called the “Good Book” that conditions the people to call a white man “father” and savior. Then they give you a dream of a place called “heaven,” where one day – when you die – everything is going to be amazing. This place has streets paved with gold waiting for you.

Here’s the problem with this concept, as I see it, black people have been living in and catching hell throughout all of America existence. Those who preach this theory do not seem to acknowledge that from the beginning of this race they “created and called “Negro” was intended to be a nation of people living in a nation without a nationality.

The word terror and terrorist is commonly used today but never used to address the practice used under the guise of “Manifest Destiny” or the theme of “White Supremacy” throughout the foundation of the nation. The terrorist of the past who stole the land to build a nation called themselves patriots. They created a vile terrorist group, the KKK, and if they don’t actively support it – they sympathized because they did not and don’t neutralize it. There are government documents proving that the top law enforcement agency created and use of a subversive program called COINTELPRO to “neutralize” what they believed to be threats to neutralize black leaders.

Even with documented facts, there are some people who don’t take seriously the extent of the FBI, CIA and other government agencies to take down black people for the simplest threat to the power structure and control. We know assassinations, murder, and terror at the hands of the government has been a staple influencing curtain desired outcomes. Not only abroad but right here on the nations streets. I suggest as evidence, the murders of Dr. King, Malcolm X, JFK, RFK, and countless lynching and black people killed at the hands of the police.

More dangerous in my view was the documented involvement of the government in the Crack Cocaine Epidemic and the extreme sentencing guidelines resulting from the War on Drugs. If that didn’t work to destroy a black lives and communities, the system will assassinate and destroy the character of a person to neutralize the target. For example, Bill Cosby, Michael Jackson, Dave Chappelle, Lauryn Hill, Jimi Hendrix, Tupac Shakur, Whitney Houston, etc… With the advent of technology, this can be easily done with satellites, social media, iphones, computers, and mainstream media under their control.

The people of African descent from the day they were first dragged onto the shores of this place they called “merica” have been subjected to the most inhuman brutality and oppression incomparable to any moral or Christian ideology. Being conditioned to believe in a man pictured to look like the oppressor to worship and call father makes that domination possible. Keep in mind there is always the remembrance of Nat Turner and Denmark Vesey that produces the fear that drives the thinking of the oppressor. There must never be a black messiah!

With the resurgent of killings at the hands of the law clearly speaks to a culture of oppression and supremacy. It is clear, and I have said many times, that the system is designed to protect the system! For those with blood on their hands, we know it is your purpose to make sure people of African descent will never be anything more than what you were created to be – a slave physically or mentally. And to make sure that this once mighty race of people never rise again!

in terms of race relations; when you consider stealing the land, the African, slavery, lynching, police killings, and all manner of abuse. Who is the terrorist! Therefore, in light of “their” horrible history and past they have blood on the hands! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


Commentary: The Ferguson Effect

th (4)Well, Well, Well!!! Over the weekend, I heard the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. America’s Top Cop said, in essence, cops are afraid to do their jobs because of the Ferguson Effect. Is he admitting that their job is to kill unarmed black people or that they are doing wrong and don’t want people to evidence it? Frankly, no one thinks this is true, not even him, unless maybe the folks at the FOP, who are paid to make sure the cops get off when they kill. If what he said has any merit, fire them for not doing their job like anybody else.

In light of the horrible history of his agency I thought, at first, old man Hoover visited him in his sleep. I am sure this guy knows the history of his agency when Hoover had a vendetta against the black community. My entire life I have known, read about, seen police brutality and corruption by cops. Just a reminder for those who didn’t know, the primary reason the Black Panthers were formed, carried guns openly was because of extreme police misconduct, and abuse upon the black community. Remember, Hoover versus Dr. King; Hoover versus the Black Panthers, Freed Hampton or any other black organization trying to secure equal right for black people. Or maybe he forgot about COINTELPRO!

Now, the conversation has shifted to Black Lives Matter Organization comparing them to the Klug Klux Klan with attempts to demonize the group and shut them down. In my opinion, this guy and his agency should be out front leading the charge for better law enforcement. But it is not! It sounds like he is providing cover or attempting to cast shade on the evil being perpetrated by these shameful police actions against black people. The American people have every right to protest against the almost daily killing of unarmed black people.

Let me recap; Comey’s statement blamed the increase in shootings and killings, in part, on the frequency of civilians reaching for their smartphones to document anything from traffic stops to protests. On Friday, he told several hundred students at the University of Chicago Law School the “era of viral videos” has led officers to feel they’re “under siege” and unwilling to get out of their cars.

The New York Times reported several people at the Justice Department “privately fumed” at the remarks. The White House on Monday slammed FBI Director Comey’s notion that pervasive cell phone footage featuring police actions has led to an uptick in violent crime. Earnest said there was no evidence to back up Comey’s statements. “In fact, you hear law enforcement leaders across the country indicating that that’s not what’s taking place,” Earnest said.

Comey also said, the prevalence of drugs and guns may be to blame. On Monday, he reiterated to a group of law enforcement officials at the International Association of Chiefs of Police that he had a “strong sense” officers were changing their behavior for fear of being caught on camera. Does he not get it, that is the exact reason for videotaping the despicable behavior because their superiors are doing nothing to stop the lawlessness taking place in the police ranks. Everybody knows and can see the behavior we have seen within the racks is downright despicable.

As if he does not believe there is something called the First Amendment; he went on to say, “Each time somebody interprets [the] hashtag ‘Black Lives Matter’ as anti-law enforcement, one line moves away, and each time that someone interprets [the] hashtag ‘Police Lives Matter’ as anti-black, the other line moves away,”.  He said, using an analogy of two lines, one representing law enforcement and the other local communities.

Those folks preach about all the good cops out there and praise them as heroes. Seems to me, if there are so many good cops, where are they when the bad ones are doing and inflicting terror on the community, particularly black communities around this country. Is it because Ferguson exposed the diabolical actions of the police that he is referring too that some change is taking place. Maybe that why he says the Ferguson Effect is dangerous.

The remarks noted in his presentation lend no credence to the so-called Ferguson Effect; even though Comey has conceded himself there is little evidence to support this theory. In case you don’t know the term is named after last year’s unrest in Missouri, which was coined after the killing of Michael Brown and linked the rise in violent crime to harsh scrutiny over officers’ use of force. In fact, the rise in murder rates, which launched the notion that “#BlackLivesMatter Costs Black Lives,” has drawn harsh criticism mainly from the right wing folks and conservatives.

The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates has adamantly stated, and I agree, “There is no Ferguson effect” and called the link between crime and less-aggressive policing “utterly baseless.” Why doesn’t he and others see that what they call law enforcement, we call a gang of lawless thugs who are nothing more than an occupying force, who operate with impunity in the use of force against the people who they are paid to protect and serve. Let me say this – I have never in my entire life had a positive encounter with the police. So dude, what you proclaim is as much a fantasy as Peter Pan!!! And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


Manufactured Perception: Don’t Believe The Hype

9

The reason there is such a thing as media is to control the minds of people. It is designed for the purposes of propaganda! The media is the most powerful form of persuasion and illusion. This is true in all forms, and it is not designed for truth! Propaganda wins the day, and it is the media’s job to subversively control your thinking. You know the old adage “if you control what a man is thinking. You don’t have to worry about what he thinks.” In order for media to work effectively, imagery is the key. Most are designed to produce “fear”.

You see imagery is important to your minds interpretation. When you watch a program, you are made to believe whatever it is – is true. When you know, it is designed and created specifically to inject something into your brain, which the brain conceives as reality. When you watch television, they call the show “a program” – got it! This is the only truth in media; they are telling you that you are being programmed.

Just look at commercials, they make you fall for the obvious – lies. For example, look at a medical or drug commercial. The pills they are trying to sell makes you think it will heal your body. All while telling you at the end of the commercial the numerous side effects that may affect or kill you, if you take the particular drug. Yet, people take the drug anyway.

There are other forms as well – like movies; they rewrite history all the time, and most believe it as truth. Religion: they made you believe in a white deity when you know that the man’s image could not have come from that region of the world. In fact, the picture you see was painted sixteen hundred years after the fact.

This brings me to the bloodsuckers of the ignorant, which is the news that comes from your daily news stations and daily newspapers that have convinced you that when you read it or see it – it must be true! These vehicles are the most dangerous of all media. The people who infect your minds with their views of truth are nothing more than intellectual masturbators and conscience pimps. Did you know that the daily newspaper is written on a fifth-grade level? This is significant because it speaks to the intellectual capacity of those who read its messages.

This brings me to the situation and recent events pertaining to the killings of unarmed black people, for virtually nothing. Since the death of Michael Brown, like all the other black men murdered, the media leaks lies and so-call evidence have been presented by the media suggesting that it was the victims for their own death. The St. Louis newspaper, as well as the entire government apparatus, operates on the same principle established by Missouri’s infamous Dred Scott Decision that said, “There are no rights of a black man that a white man is bound to respect”.

This apparatus feels that there is no probable cause to arrest the cop’s who kill unarmed black people in the street animal. This concept is similar to the rash of nearly weekly deaths of black men and women under cover of law that have occurred over the past year or more.

Let me give you an example, there was a man [Pro Football Player] named Plaxico Burress, who shot himself; yet, they found probable cause to arrest, convict, and incarcerate him in prison for about three years. However,  a cop shooting an unarmed black kid – not enough to charge!

Media is a tool of the system. Therefore, until and if there is a trial, be very aware of what they tell you about the events in this matter, and, in fact, every instance of so-called news. People we are about to witness the biggest fraud since the Rodney King incident. I say this with much pain and sadness because it appears they are signaling “there will be no charges” in this case – like the others.

They, the powers that be, think it will just go away – but NOT THIS TIME! This just might be the event that sparks what Gil Scott-Heron was talking about when he said “The Revolution will not be televised” but it will. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
