What Frightens Them is it Our Potential and Their Inferiority Complex(ion)? (702 hits)


What Frightens Them is it Our Potential and Their Inferiority Complex(ion)? 

 

I do not ask this question in a derogatory manner, it is our complexion to how Black people are identified and judged, in addition to many viewing it as our beauty flaw.

 

But, as soon as a Black man speaks up to his family that it is time to clean our own houses and take care of our own businesses, he is labeled a separatist or a racist if they mention why. 

 

The Ruin of a Nation Begins in the Homes of Its People ( a Ghanaian proverb)

 

 

African/Americans, we are a family and it is time that we begin working toward our own family's interests. The idea that, "Charity begins at home" is not separatism nor selfishness. The neglecting of ourselves and relying on others to provide for us nurtures that negative perception other families have of our community.

 

Is it Racist?

 

- to stop supporting any system that is failing to address our family needs

 

- to encourage family own businesses and entrepreneurship in our own neighborhoods

 

- to vote for candidates who empathies with our families job, health, housing,etc., conditions

 

- to insist that our neighborhood schools are staffed, equipped and supplied equally to publicly subsidized charter schools

 

- to tell our Youth that there are those who will harm and prey on you solely because of their complexion

 

- to unify our resources to ensure we qualify for some of the government infrastructure and capital improvement projects, especially those that will be developed and built in our communities.

 

- to be treated justly with the allocation of government contracts, loans, grants, scholarships, etc.

 

- to council your family that until we take ownership of our own financial, political and social destiny, we will be seen as not deserving of other families' respect. 

 

So speaking to my family of Americans, like President Obama stated in one of his speeches: There’s no Liberal America, a Conservative America, Red States and Blue States, Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats; there is not a Black America, a White America, a Latino America or an Asian America — There’s the United States of America.

 

To allot of the rest of The World, We All are the Ugly Americans.

Mr. Butcher ll,

There are so many things wrong about your blog. Your blog gives me insight of how ignorantly you think. Iíll pick just this one thing to show you how wrong you are.

This was quoted in your blog, ďThe Ruin of a Nation Begins in the Homes of Its People ( a Ghanaian proverb)Ē
41 million Black Americans descendants of plantation slaves had never been a nation. Black Americans are a NEW race of people and we began in ruins. Black Americans were born out of ruins.

Consequentially, your dumb-ass Ghanaianís proverb is not applicable to Black Americans. Your do not think analytically and you do not reason rationally. You donít know what you are talking about and you need to listen to me!

WOW! Brother Butcher II,

Direct and to the point. These are reasonable points to demand from our local, state and Nations government.

Steve,

If your question would relate to the point Iíve made opposing Mr. Butcher ll I would love to give an answer!
The is that Black Americans had never been a nation!

Mr. ass-hole Butcher! I said your African proverb is not applicable to us Black Americans including your self. Why you are a damn fool is because when ever I oppose you regardless of your subject you always respond as with criticism and nothing firing back at me that I am wrong.

I want to dialogue with intelligent minded Black Americans! Are there any intelligent Black Americans our there?

Am I wrong to say that Black Americans were never a nation? And, since Black Americans were never a nation how can your dumb-ass African proverb apply to us Black Americans dummy? Speak what you know is true or listen to me because I am our first genuine prophet!

Mr. Deacon,

White American has never given Black Americans anything! Black Americans will get what we need and want from God as the Children of Israel did when they were in Egypt as slaves the same as us here in White America.

The Jewish Jesus White Americaís god has never done anything for us either since both Jesus and White America are the same people and you havenít figured that out yet even though Iíve been giving ample cues. You are extremely stupid!

Brother Buther,

If I may. FuFu this blog is not about you, knucklehead.

So, stop trying to use your Daddy's tools of distraction, misdirection, and deception here. This topic is something Black Americans can do as a people right now.

Is that one line all you saw?

If you want to talk about your issues, start a blog!!!

Harry,

Ivan made this point:

- to be treated justly with the allocation of government contracts, loans, grants, scholarships, etc.

You profited from your work on the World Trade Center and now you are comfortably retired in the land of America.

Steve,

It is not humanly possible that one race of people e.g. White Americans could or would treat a different race of people e.g. Black Americans equally. Even if it was possible it would still be wrong and a disadvantage to Black Americans because Black Americans would never know what it is like to be sovereign and completely depending on ourselves. Black Americans would never know the feelings to become a world power to guide and influence the thoughts of other country for the benefit of the world.

Black Americans should want to be the best steward of Godís earth as Caucasian people are today and they feel very good to be in the front of every one else. Black Americans would never feel this awesome feel if we continue to have these inferiority feel begging White Americaís government to treat Black Americans better.

That is what the Children of Israel were doing; begging Pharaoh to treat them better and God said the hell with that and brought the Children of Israel out of Egypt and into a country of their own. Intelligent Black Americans want the same and we will have all of what Iíve been saying in my life time.

Forgive me Mr. Ivan Butcher II --- I first looked at the Title of this Blog and then the Picture

What Frightens Them is it Our Potential and Their Inferiority Complex(ion)?

AND

the picture of Two MEN that are DEAD since 1968

AND

the Greatest President America EVER produced Commander in Chief Baraaka Hussein Obama

1st Impression that the THREE men CANNOT be ANY picture TOGETHER ---- A FALSEHOOD

One Man; AlHaj AbdulMaleek AsShabazz was a Muslim that saw NO Inferiority or racialistic racism

-------and Last words were;

-------"all Men, whether they be european or african are the Family of Adaam(as)"

a second man Dr.Martin Luther King 11 a selfProfessed negro christianPreacher

-------and Last words were, "i had a dream ......."

NOW for The GREATEST, EVER ---American Representative of the United States of America Constitution Our Commander in Chief President Baraaka Hussein

in 2004(when both other men were DEAD) and again in 1/20/2015 Said.......

"......there is not a 'black America or a white America' THERE is a United States of America......"

So the INFERIORITY and FEARFUL will be the racistlyIgnorant 'blackWhiteLightDark' racialists

President Baraaka Hussein Obama followers WILL continue to Prosper and Grow away from Stereotypes and Misconceptions of the olde Past

When will the rest of America?

Greetings Robert,

Respecting all feedback, Perception is a Preconceived Notion!

As an artist, I take liberty in whatever manner I choose to express myself, everyone has a choice to agree or disagree. I see nothing wrong with my interpretation of how I have been addressed as being a Racist, by comparing it to the efforts of others of my past growing up in America.

and Last words were;

-------"all Men, whether they be european or african are the Family of Adaam(as)"

Try telling that to a Racist!

We as a people spend too much time on labels trying to define ourselves. The reality, They are serious when They say that, no matter which ethnic group referring, We all look alike to THEM.

What I have noticed is that those who feel that they are of pure blood, no matter what race are less tolerant of diversity.


A 21st Century Reality for European Descendants:

Denial is Contrary to Self-Preservation!

I understand too well, why White America (European Descendants) would be on the defensive about the issues of the past in regarding the Race Relationship with Black Americans.

Considering the birth rate statistics shows that it takes 4.1 White women (E. D.) to match the average birth rate of Non-White women of 5 children, World-wide.

So, if you consider that the World population of White people (E. D.) not only are fewer in numbers, and inhabit and possess disproportioned amounts of land small pockets of countries, such as, the European countries, Canada, South Africa, USA, etc. not excluding Australia.

In each one of these countries because of European Colonialism, those Nations, especially with the birth rate disparity all have a growing immigration concerns. In addition to the their issues with of the impact abortion, gay marriage and mixed marriages is having on the White Race (E. D.).

For an example, there will be no peace with Israel until the Israeli children of the Holocaust survivors pass on, their fear is that when borders are opened, Children Who Play Together, Will Lay Together.

Israel would be consumed with Arab / African blood and culture. Tradition is what holds together Israel's fragile existence as a Tribe.

What I have noticed is that those who feel that they are of pure blood, no matter what race are less tolerant of diversity.

If and when will White America begin to realize that Black Americans are their only true ally left in the Non-White World?

And this is an older chart and only of the USA.:

Harry,

Remember when you said I shouldn't be teaching black youth? So why aren't you teaching them? The proverb Ivan repeated here is perfectly applicable to you. Here you are an experienced carpenter and businessman, and have you passed on any of that valuable knowledge to any of the younger generation? Think how much more beneficial that would be than flapping your gums about prophets! You are a very irresponsible man!

*********************************************************************************

I guess YOU did not like the phrase

---"all Men, whether they be european or african are the Family of Adaam(as)"

I watched on Television Series Called ---- Dark Girls- Light Girls

My writings at BIA, have constantly interpreted that all 'blackWhiteRedYellow' selfIdentification is Senseless, and this series verified my thoughts---- TO ME, that in 2015 when those that look darker, or lighter become closer to the same color----the racism WILL be even MORE nonsensical

Oh, artistic One--------do you like these comments?

1.BIA, is an African American Family site to SHATTER olde Stereotypes and Misconceptions........

and

2. ---"all Mankind, European/nsAmerican, Pacific or AfricanAsian are the Family of Adaam(as)"

Do those address yourArtistic persona...........?

Ivan,

I know exactly what you mean, "Art was my salvation." In 1988 a friend of mine told me what I needed was to learn an art. Bernardo was his name, and though we have long since lost touch I remember him as clear as day. He told me he was Jesus, which at the time I thought, well okay, but now I know exactly what he meant. Anyway, I chose photography.
