Terror: The Scourge Of Lynchings

5The term “Lynch’s Law” and subsequently “lynch law” and “lynching” originated during the American Revolution when Charles Lynch, a Virginia justice of the peace, ordered extralegal punishment for Loyalist. Although there are some who believe the term is to pay homage to the mythical figure “Willie Lynch”, which is not true. In the South before the Civil War, members of the abolitionist movement and other people opposing slavery were also targets of lynch mob violence. This was in many ways an effective tool of white supremacy to induce fear and to control blacks by white people.

Lynching was the practice of killing, an act of terror usually by a hanging resulting from extrajudicial mob action by white people against blacks. Lynchings in the United States occurred after the American Civil War in the late 1800s, the emancipation of slaves, and chiefly from the late 1800s through the 1960s. Lynchings took place most frequently against African American men and women in the South. But I remind you that anywhere south of Canada is south in America!

Lynchings occurred most frequently from 1890 to the 1920s, a time of political suppression of blacks by whites, with a peak in 1892. Lynchings were also very common in the Old West, where the victims were African American men. Most of the South was dominated politically by conservative Democrats. Lynching was part of the informal system of enforcement of white supremacy in the late 19th century following Reconstruction.

The number of lynchings in the South is also strongly associated with economic strains, although the causal nature of this link is unclear: low cotton prices, inflation, and economic stress are associated with higher frequencies of lynching. The granting of U.S. Constitutional rights to freedmen after the American Civil War during the Reconstruction Era (1865–1877) aroused anxieties among white Southerners, who were unwilling to concede such social status to African Americans, especially in areas of black concentration.

The whites blamed the freedmen for their own wartime hardship, economic losses, and loss of social and political privilege. During Reconstruction, freedmen and whites active in the pursuit of civil rights were sometimes lynched. Also, blacks were intimidated and attacked physically to prevent them from voting, with violence increasing around elections from 1868 into the late 1870s to suppress the black, Republican vote.

White Democrats regained control of state legislatures in 1876 and a national compromise on the presidential election resulted in the removal of federal troops and official end of Reconstruction in 1877. In later decades, there continued to be violence around elections to suppress black voting, particularly with the rise of the Populist Party and some victories by Populist-Republican Fusion candidates in the 1890s.

From 1885 to 1908, southern states passed new constitutions and electoral rules to disenfranchise most blacks, ending election violence by utterly excluding them from politics. The dominant whites enacted a series of segregation and Jim Crow laws to enforce blacks’ second-class status. During this period of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Lynchings reached a peak, reflecting the social repression and hard economic times.

Florida led the nation in lynchings per capita from 1900-1930. Georgia led the nation in lynchings from 1900-1931 with 302 incidents, according to The Tuskegee Institute. Lynchings peaked in many areas when it was time for landowners to settle accounts with sharecroppers. The Tuskegee Institute recorded 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites being lynched between 1882 and 1968, with the annual peak occurring in the 1890s, at a time of economic stress in the South and political suppression of blacks. A five-year study published in 2015 by the Equal Justice Initiative found that nearly 3,959 black men, women, and children were lynched in the twelve Southern states between 1877 and 1950.

African Americans mounted resistance to lynchings in numerous ways. Intellectuals and journalists encouraged public education, actively protesting and lobbying against lynch mob violence and government complicity in that violence. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), as well as numerous other organizations, organized support from white and black Americans alike and conducted a national campaign to get a federal anti-lynching law passed.

African-American women’s clubs raised funds to support the work of public campaigns, including anti-lynching plays. Their petition drives, letter campaigns, meetings and demonstrations helped to highlight the issues and combat lynching.[10] In the Great Migration, particularly from 1910 to 1940, 1.5 million African Americans left the South, primarily for destinations in northern and mid-western cities, both to gain better jobs and education and to escape the high rate of violence. From 1910 to 1930 particularly, more blacks migrated from counties with high numbers of lynchings.

From 1882 to 1968, “nearly 200 anti-lynching bills were introduced in Congress, and three passed the House. Seven presidents between 1890 and 1952 petitioned Congress to pass a federal law.” In 1920 the Republican Party promised at its national convention to support passage of such a law. In 1921 Leonidas C. Dyer from St. Louis sponsored an anti-lynching bill; it was passed in January 1922 in the United States House of Representatives, but a Senate filibuster by the Southern white Democratic block defeated it in December 1922. With the NAACP, Representative Dyer spoke across the country in support of his bill in 1923 and tried to gain passage that year and the next, but was defeated by the Solid South Democratic block.

Decades later, during the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, violence erupted again, with attacks and murders of black activists throughout the South, and bombings in Birmingham, Alabama of homes of aspirational African Americans. In 1964 three Mississippi civil rights workers were lynched, abducted, shot and killed by KKK members including Neshoba County law enforcement. These galvanized national public support for federal civil rights and Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 ending segregation, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 to enforce constitutional rights to vote.

Lynching has evolved today to where the slave catchers (police) just shoot blacks dead! I would be remissed if I did not include lynching done for mere entertainment by white! This was terror by any form of sane thinking upon blacks and in many cases sanctioned by the American governments! And that is my thought provoking perspective…


Think About This?

This is important to understand that this is what they have done to our minds!

Trump: The Great White Hype

Featured Image -- 10389I read an article in the New York Times that thoroughly summed up what is in the hearts of White America. It was written by the well-known, racial antagonist Pat Buchanan, his rant trending on Twitter was spot on! My first thought when I saw his name that maybe he had died, which fortunately for him it was not so. But it was just another one of his racist rants. He is known to said somethings that are racist and stupid.

Well the new racist savior, Trump, went to Mexico and guess what – nothing happened. Nonetheless, as I read Buchanan’s commentary, he spoke truth to what white folks are feeling in America today. I would not wish death upon even the lowest of our species. When it comes to Pat Buchanan, the alternative is only slightly better, because the longer he breathes air, chews food and gets a decent amount of sleep, Buchanan can be counted on for his racist rants. That is what he does! In the latest commentary from the conservative commentator is a column in which he calls Donald Trump “The Great White Hope.”

In it, Buchanan whines about the pitfalls of being a white male in an ever-changing world where whites aren’t the only soldiers, scientists, carpenters, and clergy. He went on to say “The world has been turned upside-down for white children. In our schools, the history books have been rewritten, and old heroes blotted out, as their statues are taken down and their flags are put away.” Which is how they all feel, whether they admit it or not – it’s true. They call it being PC (politically correct) now, but they are thinking white only, bigotry and white supremacy. Look at it this way, they say the N-word as if they think we don’t know they are saying Nigger!

These words came out of the mouth of a man who cherishes the wretched history of white America evil past. He seemed upset because white “Children are being taught that America was ‘discovered’ by genocidal white racists, who murdered the native peoples of color, enslaved Africans to do the labor they refused to do, then went out and brutalized and colonized indigenous peoples all over the world.” In other words, they’re being taught the truth not the lies of his-story!

White folk and racists have always had a problem with the truth. It debunks their silly notions of white supremacy and the insulting fallacy that everyone else is inferior. This is what they call Manifest Destiny, which means God gave the world to them and everything in it. They see the first step in their demise as the election of the first black president in America – twice! And now there is a chance of electing a woman as president. They know the so-called founding fathers are rolling over in their graves. White folk are scared as hell because it is their generation that lost America.

Buchanan, like Trump and dare I say most white folk are counting the days until the end of the first black presidency. The sight of a black man behind a seal that says “President of the United States” — for nearly eight years, no less — has upset their sense of order in the world. White folks are supposed to rule and be at the top of the food chain, and now a woman might hold power and mark my words – they will treat Hillary worse than they treated Mr. Obama. Therefore, Buchanan argues the need a great white hope to make America great again.

Buchanan goes on to write “Lincoln and every president had been a white male… What has changed in our culture? Everything.” Adding that the “‘angry white male is now an acceptable slur in culture and politics.” Slur? He should consider the slurs the rest of us have endured for centuries. Buchanan, like most white men and Trump, wouldn’t last three days in this world being anything but what he is white. And if you think that is an exaggeration, try being the black, Hispanic, Native American or Asian in America throughout history and today.

It tells me a lot about racism and bigotry in America when they cry about the woes of being white, and now they have Trump the savor of White America! The truth is — there’s that word again, truth — people like Buchanan and Trump nor would any white person on the planet wouldn’t trade places with a black person for a minute. So they seek a Great White Hope, a fascist, to take back their country. An America where racism and bigotry reign supreme. 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…

 


Two Views Of America

(3)Today if you look at the election process you will clearly see White Supremacy on full display. The Donald exhibits all of the characteristics. His main claim is that “the system if rigged” when in fact he has gotten and taken advantage of privilege at every step and stage of his life. I was talking to a white friend a few days ago, and trying to impress upon me how fortunate “your people” are to live free in America, which is now a post-racial society and the usual proof bigots give is that we have a black president. Another old standby came from her lips; “we have problems, but it’s not as bad as it was”. She has no sense that it was her people who made it bad in the first place. To say that I was shocked in an understatement!

I sat back and enjoyed the foolishness of her thoughts, which was rooted in what they hold so dear – “privilege”! Then, of course, she tried to play the race card using Ben Carson to show as some kind of proof. I continued to hear the usual; you people should be proud to be an American. I guess she thought I was buying this nonsense, so she brought up the Donald. OMG!

She went on to quote Dr. Woodson saying that “Regardless of what we are taught history shows that it does not matter who is in power… those who have not learned to do for themselves and have to depend solely on others never obtain any more rights or privileges in the end than they did in the beginning.” I could not see how this proved her point, but it was entertaining. My sense was that this meant they are taking their country back!

It amazed me that someone who smiled in my face would present me with this conclusion, particularly, when you look at the state of race relations in America today on every level. Black people and people of color are at the top of every negative category across the board; be it unemployment, healthcare, housing, education, you name it. She is trying to educate me, say things have changed, and that I should support Trump.

As she rambled, she must have begun to realize she sounded more and more like someone from “Masters Time.” She started to realize that I was not buying her argument at all. So she reached deep and went Martin Luther King saying he would support Trump. Now the militant in me came forward. I remained her that Dr. King’s legacy her been reduced and sanitized down to four words – “I have a dream”. She seemed to know nothing about COINTELPRO, the lynchings, murders, slavery or that her people done for centuries.

I know she thought, like most, that her evidence that there is no longer any racism sounded good, but the reality is not much has changed. Yes, we do have a “Black Face” in the White House, and I am glad to have lived long enough to have witnessed this phenomenal event. Especially when no one living or dead would have ever thought that a black president would ever live in the White House as president. Nonetheless, I took the opportunity to remind her of what Carter G. Woodson said in 1933 in his still relevant novel “The Mis-Education of the Negro:

“History shows that it does not matter who is in power… those who have not learned to do for themselves and have to depend solely on others never obtain any more rights or privileges in the end than they did in the beginning.” In the same novel, he also reminded us that “if you control what a man is thinking you don’t have to worry about what he thinks”.

So it was time for the smackdown and let her know that she make as about much sense as the Donald – nothing has changed. I can recall in my lifetime where the “N-Word” was the last thing a black man or woman, heard before being lynched. I remember vividly the KKK terrorizing black communities burning down houses and bombings churches under the protection of law; this is also to include murder with no justice for the crime. These cowards held down and raped black women for amusement.

They, society, white people, the Republican and Tea Party is not that much different than the old Citizens Counsels. Today, the police still act in many ways under a similar code; they can “Stop and Frisk” you at their pleasure, beat and brutalize, and kill with no repercussions. The Prison Industrial Complex where you find “Just Us” is big business filled with 21st Century Slaves trade on the Stock Market; just like slaves were back in the day. Yet, Stand Your Ground is nothing more than vigilante justice for people who reflect her image.

African Americans have been here since August of the year 1619, and they are still debating whether or not we can vote. Just for clarity, every so many years that portion of the Voting Rights Act must be reauthorized and signed into law, and in the span of time between re-authorization they try every trick imaginable to suppress the vote. Then she stopped me to say that the Constitution protects all Americans, which I suppose was her trump card. So I quickly reminded her that it still says people of color are you viewed as – 3/5 human.

I suggested to her that she might want to be rational and return to earth and stop using the meaningless and false impressions because we know better! There’s no such thing as “post-racial” it is just racism. Just before she stormed off; I reminded her that I knew Jim Crow and his son, James Crow Jr. Esq. continues the mission of his father in ways more clever and wicked than his namesake. And that’s my Thought Provoking Perspective…


White Folk Just Don’t Understand

Twenty First Century Lynching’s

(4)Let me begin by saying the police were formed by slave masters to hunt down and catch runaway slave. There has been a continuing culture of brutality and abuse from that day to this. Let’s stop thinking that white folk care about the killing of any black person by a police officer. They can see as we do that what is happening is wrong and see it as murder just as we do. Because of the White Supremacy Code that they must uphold and use the smile to tell a lie about it because a cover up is to follow.

This type of murder and abuse has been a staple of White Supremacy dating back centuries. The difference now is that we have social media, and everybody has a camera. Therefore, they can no longer hide this misconduct and not reported on mainstream media; as it was in the Trayvon Martin case where it took over a year for this crime to be reported.

In Baton Rouge, Louisiana the fatal police shooting of a father of five children, Alton Sterling, who was fatally shot by police early Tuesday morning. Sterling was a 37-year-old black man. The two officers involved in the murder were videotaped showing Sterling pinned to the ground by two white police officers. Thank you, Arthur “Silky Slim” Reed, founder of Stop the Killing, a youth mentoring program based in Baton Rouge for making the first cell phone video of the police shooting of Alton Sterling.

In a twenty-four time frame, another black man was shot four times and killed, Philando Castile in Minnesota, for doing absolutely nothing and in front of his daughter and girlfriend. Fortunately, she had the mindset to live stream the incident. Even with video proof they still try to negate the face or try to make us believe we did not see what we thought we saw. In other words, our lying eyes are playing tricks on us and in the Louisiana case they say both of the body camera’s fell off the police. Shake my damn head! We heard this same story with Rodney King; we did not see what we thought we did.

It is a time that we take our belief in white out of the equation like was done in the Charlotte Church shooting were those black folk prayed and forgave the murder immediately. Black leadership should call to arms black people’s right to defend and protect their lives against this terror. We have seen there is no consequence for murdering an unarmed black person. Sorry turning the other cheek has failed miserably. Their behavior is as bad, if not worse than ISIS!

These so-called public servants will go so far as to go after and prosecute the person who captures the incident on video. For example, the New York Daily News reports that the man who filmed the chokehold death of Eric Garner, Ramsey Orta, is preparing to head to prison for four years for filming that incident. Further, the Baltimore DA is under attack for trying to prosecute the officers in the Freddie Gray case. No DA in America has taken any such action against a police officer. So far this year there has been over five hundred killing of black people by the police.

Once those who murder black people realize that we are no longer an easy target, this will stop. Unfortunately, more lives will be lost before we stop this police state. However, for the sake of our children people must exercise their right to obtain a firearm permit, obtain optimal target training, and be willing to stand up to injustice, especially when the lives of black people is threatened.

I can recall the words of H. Rap Brown who told us to “ Burn Baby Burn”. After he uttered these words this insanity stopped, at least for a while. These acts of terror are nothing more than what ISIS doing and this terror is nothing more than a war on black people. So let’s call it what is ISIS American Style and the terror being inflicted on innocent and in most cases unarmed black people would make Hitler blush!

As is always the case, the real so-called Americans, white folk, continue to not believe there is no problem and nothing to see here. Make no mistake these deaths were assassinations. They always say that there are so many good police, I don’t know any! But if this is the case, why the hell don’t they snatch, come from behind that blue wall of silence and do something about the bad cops. And that’s thought provoking perspectives…

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!

His-Story: Paper Genocide

(3)It is important to understand that White Supremacy had to rewrite the true history, with little facts, because they had to deny the history of other people, especially black people, through what I call His-Story. Today, as more information of truth is revealed, we know now that there is no truth in the story they tell. They made us believe that black people live in caves, but the most ingrained image is the black people live in the jungle, which there is no evidence anywhere that black people ever lived in a cave.

We must also except that there was never any truth in what is taught in schools or classrooms in America. Just like the word “library” literally means that is where the lies are buried! If you research and read books by those who lived the history or at a particular period of history, you will usually find some truth. White folk has done a great job of censorship. This is why the school systems in America sanctions what books a student can study. It is evidenced by the fact slavery is barely mentioned, if taught at all, what is taught is nothing more than the white man’s fantasy or maybe guilt relief.

There was nothing kind or decent about stealing another human being from his land to enslave for life with the only purpose to be used as a beast of burden. NOTHING! When they tell the story, they have to put a good face on the evil they did because it was done, supposedly, in the name of God. This was the greatest crime of all to have the church sanction the practice and declare it as an entitlement by God for white people. They even made him white so that all other people worship the face of a white man.

Let’s talk about the good book, which was changed many times, twenty-eight times, in fact, to suit and justify the crimes done by the white men. Don’t you find it odd that the church on Sunday morning is the most segregated place in America? Trust me; the only God white folk know and believe in is the paper they wrote on money “In God We Trust” – the money.

Most believe the story of white Jesus to be true; not being aware that it is merely a tool to brainwash and oppress.  Just like most still believe the lie “All men are created equal.” I am always amazed that the lies told by his-story still resonate so profoundly in the minds of people today. Malcolm told us a long time ago that “only a fool would let the enemy teach his children.” I guess it is no surprise because they taught you and I suppose that makes you a fool too. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


Sabotaging The Slave Narrative

811_160A few weeks ago they showed the reworked story of the epic slave drama “Roots”. All of the white critics complained that it made white folk look horrible. Duh – yes, what their ancestors did during slavery was horrible. In fact, in my view, it was the greatest crime known to mankind. They have always told the story the way they wanted to tell a story. Usually with more lies than true, but people are more knowledgeable today and don’t believe that “BS” about how happy the slaves were or how good they were treated.

About a hundred years ago, “Gone with the Wind” told a story about the mythologized Old South of wealthy planters and obedient slaves to which white folks viewed with great fanfare. I suppose that made them feel better about how great things use to be. This week, a very different sort of story is being told about the Civil War and Reconstruction era called the “Free State of Jones” will commemorate the 150th anniversary of the War and Reconstruction, and the public would do very well not to take the film seriously. This was done primarily done to appease the guilt of their souls.

This movie challenges our many misconceptions of the Civil War and Reconstruction and attempts to make it different than it actually was. I will call it the whitewashed virgin to promote a dialogue about what may have been possible more than a century ago, in other words – a fantasy with a white man the hero – not the devil. The “Free State of Jones” is based on a true story, or so they claim, of interracial resistance to the Confederacy in Civil War Mississippi. It is a story of how a white farmer from humble origins came to see how the Confederacy favored the rich planters at the expense of men and women like himself. So he chose to organize a rebellion aimed at establishing a terrain of freedom, a “free state,” in the county of Jones.

There were, in fact, thousands of white men and women, they say, might have felt like this in the Confederate South. The strongest resistance to the Confederacy came, not from poor white folk, but from those who were destined to be its main victims: the slaves. In Mississippi and elsewhere in the Confederate South, they took the opportunity of the War to flee their plantations and farms, head to Union lines, or form Maroons in swamps and remote woodlands, denying slaveholders the labor and submission that had been expected. During his own battles with the Confederacy in rural Jones County, this white man forged alliances with African Americans, most specifically one slave with whom he developed an intimate relationship.

The interracial alliance that appeared to be developing in Civil War Jones County truly blossomed during Reconstruction. In effect, this white man joined the African Americans’ fight against local Confederates who were determined to “win the peace” through the mechanisms of black codes, apprenticeship laws, and vigilante terrorism that federal pardons issued by President Andrew Johnson had made possible. Doesn’t this make your eyes water! This reminds me of today, when every white person alive at the time of the Dr. King’s March on Washington says they were there.

The advent of Radical Reconstruction in 1867 enabled this white guy and his black allies to build a movement that made a new dawning of freedom; emancipation, citizenship, political rights, access to land and economic independence, which sounds a lot like King’s Dream Speech, more than a reality. Supposedly, they organized their ranks, voted in the face of violent intimidation, claimed office, and attempted to fashion an example of interracial justice that would, in fact, survive the counterrevolutionary backlash of the day, known as Redemption and live on in a variety of important ways.

It is a breathtaking fantasy, and one that gives the lie of the long-standing demonizations of Reconstruction. This film unlike the “Birth of a Nation” and “Gone with the Wind” seared into public memory and instead demonstrates that the courageous efforts of ordinary black and white people brought a new nation into being not the racist one that was in reality. It kinda sounds like that lie – “all men are created equal”.

In my view, this movie “Free State of Jones” is the happiest of all horse shit. This is just another half-hearted attempt for them to rewrite history, soften the horrors and abuse of the institution of slavery; in other words, a new chapter to the lies of His-story. Yet, it’s been centuries, and no white person has made such a thing for black people a reality! I’ll close by saying that creating and telling despicable false rendition of this “BS” is what they do – easing their guilt and shame for the evils sins of their fathers. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…


The Creator Of The Documentaries Hidden Colors

th (4)Tariq Nasheed, also known as Tariq Elite, is a young black author, documentary film producer, media personality, satirist, Internet radio host, relationship expert, and social commentator, focusing on the psychology of dating and African American social history. Tariq is profound, and dare I say one of a kind as his works explore the hidden history of African America people. If you have not purchased your copy of the DVD’s or seen them – it is a must!

In the attached interviews, I think he speaks profoundly about the subject of black history, or as we say Real Talk, on topics both current and past. This message is only comparable to the documentary movies Hidden Colors. Nasheed produced the 2011 documentary film Hidden Colors, on the history of African and aboriginal peoples. The film had a limited theatrical release around the United States before being made available on DVD. Nasheed’s follow-up film and DVD, Hidden Colors 2: The Triumph of Melanin, was released in 2012. Support this man and hear the truth about the history of black people because the Hollywood depictions are lies!

Tariq Nasheed the following interview he discusses creating Hidden Colors, Group Economics, America’s Prison System, Police Brutality. In Part 2 of this interview, Tariq Nasheed talks about his thoughts on George Zimmerman, overcoming poverty, and he also gives gems to aspiring writers on how he got his writing career off the ground. I am proud of the young brother, his work, and the collection of supporting scholars who help narrate the historic documentaries. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

Please watch the interviews and listen to the truth he speaks.
