If your long and distant objective is worthy of a long road, don’t try getting there by short cuts that transgress the rights of others …’ – Whitney Houston
I gave vivid accounts so those who don’t see it can see it now ..’ – Aremuorin
The subliminal seeds of discord sown by western influence on African soils socio-politically; psychologically and subliminally; still makes it pandemic-ally possible to stunt the continent’s growth economically like witchcraft. Even, within the diaspora.
You then wonder why Africans don’t clock the game and unite. This is a mental war game etching away the very weaving fabric of humanity.
As long as white privilege is perceived and championed as the status quo, racism is going no where. Otherwise, white supremacists, would have fessed up their evil systemic lies by now to the whole world and to their own putting an end to the fasad.
Africans are getting no reparations soon unlike the Jews until they learn self love, unity and put God first.
Like I said multiple times – ‘I don’t need the Pope to find God’. White Jesus can leave me alone now. I thrashed that in 2017 with 2017.
Christianity was in Africa before White Jesus showed up. So what the hell. Explain to me the demonics of slavery; it’s ebonics, and of the mind again? Anything that does not look like White Jesus is a threat to White Jesus.
I feel bad and awful for White folks who aren’t racist who just want to get on; and along, with everyone. It reminds me when I am running for the bus, upset-tingly getting stopped, or racially profiled as a drug dealer by White Jesus, and the police.
On boxing day I was a victim of a hit and run by a white male in a car with no break lights who ran off. On arrival of the Police (White Jesus) they declined to record the incident saying they don’t believe there was a collision.
Really? ‘I have a witness to it who is the reason why I am alive’ – I explained. I would have been crushed. My witness is the one who pulled me quickly out of the way. I got hit by the thigh and suffered, thankfully only minor injuries but ended in hospital – still.
Police (White Jesus) said the culprits friend controls the cctv and there is no footage; that nothing is going to happen so I should stop wasting my time. He added that the crime is over. I am pretty sure when he runs someone over who looks like White Jesus or the Police the crime will be recorded, and believed.
Even the culprit came out of the car to admit he had no break lights that’s why he hit me before he ran off when I took his car plate registration no.
If I as a black man hit a white person (White Jesus) with a car with no break lights, and ran off, I’d be the one in jail and the there would be a cctv footage.
So when the new H&M ad campaign; with a black kid called the coolest monkey in the jungle; backlash erupted again with denials of racial innuendos of prejudice by H&M: propagated with the help of main stream media: I’m like – ‘Yea, yea – I believe Hitler is Mexican and he built the Eifle tower, too’.
But here is the thing we blacks will still potentially buy from H&M again; cuz we don’t listen, watch and learn like the Jews. It’s not the first time to experience this systemic below the belt racial jibes.
Some blacks are still going to buy designers and brag about them when some of those brands don’t even give a rats about them but their money. Taking from them the very tools they possess to build their own brands only to be used against them psychologically; buttressed with social stigmatization, and economic oppression.
Whether you are black or white you should be outraged enough to feel empathy for humanity enough to warrant change for where peace, love and harmony reigns.
May the love of God sooth again. Amen ..’
Here is H&M’s Apology:
“We would like to put on record our position in relation to the image and promotion of a children’s sweater, and the ensuing response and criticism.
Our position is simple and unequivocal – we have got this wrong and we are deeply sorry.
H&M is fully committed to playing its part in addressing society’s issues and problems, whether it’s diversity, working conditions or environmental protection – and many others. Our standards are high and we feel that we have made real progress over the years in playing our part in promoting diversity and inclusion. But we clearly haven’t come far enough.
We agree with all the criticism that this has generated – we have got this wrong and we agree that, even if unintentional, passive or casual racism needs to be eradicated wherever it exists. We appreciate the support of those who have seen that our product and promotion were not intended to cause offense but, as a global brand, we have a responsibility to be aware of and attuned to all racial and cultural sensitivities – and we have not lived up to this responsibility this time.
We have taken down the image and we have removed the garment in question from sale. It will be recycled.
We will now be doing everything we possibly can to prevent this from happening again in future.
Racism and bias in any shape or form, conscious or unconscious, deliberate or accidental, are simply unacceptable and need to be eradicated from society. In this instance we have not been sensitive enough to this agenda.
Please accept our humble apologies”.
After conversation’s with varied opinions and having a feel for the complexities within multiculturalism and race relations; in my personal view. I have learned that the collective acts of subtle, passive and subliminal racism left people of color to be passive themselves, and / or playing games to survive. A dangerous blurry line to thread. As for those who insist it does not exist. Hear this:
When the script is flipped watch how ‘White Jesus and her tribe(s)’ switch their narratives. However, when it’s an expression of people of color’s, lived chorused challenges; experience-wise, it’s always argued, or implied to be an over reaction by White Jesus and her tribe(s). Question is Why? Could it be guilt, denial or irrational fear?
Don’t come for me with it if you know you don’t want it. Keep it where the sun won’t shine. Too done with for that ..’ –
When black artistes stop rapping about ‘Gucci and Bitches’ on their records maybe the system will stop killing us!
I wish Jesus came tonight – to put an end to all this barbarism entrenched in racial inequality ..’ I want to vomit the more I read about white supremacy and their systematic, abusive hatefulness on other races, conveniently purposed, for centuries. Love knows, most of us despise any kind of intolerance. This is our history!
Yet, claiming innocence, insisting their forefathers did it. But, why then are you privileging from it, and why aren’t you doing more, to eradicate it – it’s brutal bare faced upsurge – systematically, in modern times.
How graphic can you get. Blacks are not looting and lynching white cops. I mean – America is totally – f’ed up. Its like 400 years backwards. You murder a citizen and leave him 4 hours dead in the streets – and you are a cop, whose meant to uphold the law. What do you call that? Even a puppy will be picked quicker than that.
Imagine, a dog bit Philip White’s face off, and he died in custody ..’ Ridiculous! What are we to be? To be savaged – cuz we are black? – For God’s sakes! They lie, kill, steal, use and abuse us – abandonedly.
We can’t fight all battles. One at a time. I’m picking mine here. I’m on about Racial Equality. You fight the other battles – pick one that suits you, too ..’ Go do your best ..’ There is no White Jesus, by the way. At least, thats not what he told me – the last time we spoke!
“Being gay in America is wrong. Being black is wrong. Being a successful woman is wrong. Being a lesbian is wrong. If all this is wrong, tell me something; what is right?” – Havana Smalls
Good people are priceless. It’s not a colour thing. Good is good, Bad is just, vile! A systematic vile, violating system – that demeans humanity – the coloured race for 400 years, is injustice; so much that, while Jews get reparation, they don’t – to just, scratch the surface.
And when blacks open up, their hearts, pain and abject sorrow, to the universe – to tell their truths – they try to silence us, by trying to brand us as ‘Haters’, Bigots, Racist and etc’. Seriously? Why?
At the end of the day – who is to say your pain is greater than my pain?
Why is it an issue when blacks speak out, on their injustices suffered historically – that some other races try so hard to undermine it unapologetically, with heresy and lies?
Why Why Why. Or are we not human beings?
I still don’t get it ..’
Thank goodness – you can flick on youtube, and google history quicker than 1914.
Why is it that the coloured races, are the ones having to go thru this; and not the white race? Excuse me for asking! Who made up these rules? No race should have to experience this amount of barbarism, and evilness – in 2015.
It’s a slap In the face, when slave OWNERS get paid COMPENSATION, and the slavery victims, get NOTHING. That’s white supremacy right there! It’s just further mental slavery – going on, unchallenged and re-branded.
Why is it that when the white race are victims and perpetrators, they get reparation, but when, the black race are victims; they get nothing. Even for slavery & indignation?
It proves that the benefactors of slavery – don’t give a hoot, as long as they keep what does not belong to them, come what may. Injustices perpetuated today, systematically, unlawfully in insurmountable, despicable ways.
When will the black race get some; ‘equal opportunities’ like the rest of the human race? At least Jews got reparation, some where. I doubt the entire white race know what is to be black.
You speak of freeing the blackface of slavery; that we fight ourselves. Really? Is that what you call freedom. Please. Re check the meaning in the dictionary. Tribalism, Religious bias, and Ignorance, FORTIFIED WITH DIRTY POLITICS are different agendas, to systematic racial profiling and discrimination – when you know beta, that white Jesus won’t approve.
And who funds a good no of in fightings in other peoples country? Uhm ..’ Then the offensive one; tells me to go back to Africa ..’ If I go back to Africa – where are you gonna go. Cause question is, where are you from? At least I have roots. 3 things you need to stay out of – 1. The Truth 2. Real History 3. The Sun – cuz they’ll burn you ..’
Then my jewish brother lashes at me “I’m jewish, and none of you motherfuckers were ever exterminated in gas chambers or ovens”. Oh! I’m sorry ..’ 300 brothers and sisters in the Greenwood, Tulsa riots, 1921. Apparently, the airforce was deployed. :: Oh we were hung up on trees and burned alive, castrated and tortured ..’
or And, unfortunately – racism has not ended for the black race – its ongoing ..’ So there is a conundrum for you if you are not black. Try flagging down a black cab in London in 2015 – at night, if you are black. You would be lucky, if 1 or 2, in five stopped. When we tell some white folks; they don’t understand and we have only scratched the surface.
We were taken slaves for centuries out of our own mother land and sold ..’ And, many of us have no history or traceable roots ..’ Still we suffer the indignation by virtue of the constance persecution daily – through racial profiling for being coloured ..’ Paint yourself black for a day or two, then walk around ..’ See how it feels to be treated differently, let alone 400 years! THIS IS A SLOW BURN. Trust me.
I was told by a British Today – that I don’t live in America, when I explained police brutality black men. I was like, I have fans, friends, colleagues, cousins and family in America, and travel to America for business. Does that not count? Plus, I don’t want to get shot – when I go there.
Typical, baffling mindsets, of the subset of Ignorant – Privileged Europeans – who still don’t get it. Another said I’m exaggerating the status of affairs, and nos. Another said, those doing it – are dead! I was like – Oh really? Now you make me cross, more defiant and will, write these perpetrators, under the table. This is why we are screaming it louder – so you can know. Racism is rife and slavery has not stopped in the world.
The black race is not racist, because; we are not mobilised, socially, economically, politically or financially, to be able to suppress other races – disadvantageously.
Blacks had servants not slaves, nor did we burn them up hung on trees, in stacks like your ancestors did ..’ I grew up with several – in Africa. Sometimes there’s an arrangement – where the servant get’s, food, lodging, grooming, education, learn a trade, clothes, health and all other benefits of the family they serve, in return – for their servitude.
Do not distort the two. Even white Jesus will tell you that. What happens here is that, some servants like to severe their contract / agreement – before – their apprenticeship’s over ..’
And that’s where the confusion lies. Don’t sell us fibs. We know the truth. Africans always, once, thrived off, communal dwellings and partnerships, by barter. Unlike some other races – it takes a village to raise a child in Africa, traditionally. And we did not burn or hang our servants on trees. – the ones you call slaves.
This is what the white supremacists exploited wickedly. Divisions, lies, apartheid, separation and segregation. You did (do) that locally, nationally, internationally, in Africa, and in other nations too. Hence, incited organised xenophobia. Please! Don’t even try it.
One thing that black race do have, thou, is faith. Faith, in a God. The more we were, murdered, hung, and burned alive, the more we prayed, wrote, and/or, recited a plethora number of songs of freedom – like ‘Amazing Grace, Redemption Song, Your Love & Emptiness’, in those cotton fields; we toiled. I guess, not much has changed, arguably, for racism; for the black race.
“There is nothing above love. There is only one love. There is only one redemption. No other love is greater. In it we find mercy and grace. And not just for some”.
It’s beyond comprehension – as to why you hate us so much. We are human just like you. Every human being has a right to live, without fear of persecution, for their race, or racial profile. If you continue to silence this – your children will be next.
This needs to stop! Period!
