Stop Profiling Hip Hop!!! It Is A "Lifestyle Of Peace"!

Houston rapper Trae speaks on TSU shooting


Details Of Incident On TSU's Campus


Why is this a big deal? "White folks do school shootings all of the time!!"

(I am now satisfied that I have 'beaten' all who are trying to use this event at TSU to paint all Blacks as violent. I have learned well from some of you.)


Trae appeared on Houston local news to discuss the unfortunate event that took place at "Trae Day", an event held July 22nd on the campus of Texas Southern University.
Trae whose real name is Fraiser Thompson III, spoke on the shooting that happened at what was supposed to be a community-wide event to help mostly the children have the opportunity to come out and have fun as well as meet celebrity hip-hop artists, enjoy festivities such as carnival rides, concert performances, and receive supplies for school also free HIV/STD testing. Trae cited the shocking incident happened after the event had ended. Due to the huge crowd capacity, the holiday celebration ended early in which most of the guest artists including Trae had already left the area. Trae expressed his opinion on the unfortunate shooting incident as an act of "cowardnes" but despite the shooting, Trae stressed that the event will still be held next year because it's all about the kids and giving them a future.

Terrell Owens Show


(Sorry about this Dr Marc Lamont Hill)

I am forced to say "No Homo" on this one.

This was the picture that I found on T.O.'s web site. My man clearly has an ego about as big as the stadium that is in the backdrop of his naked behind.

I did not realize that VH1 had turned into "Reality Show Central".
I did not realize that Terrell Owens had a reality show.

I saw it for the first time during my vacation day in which I relaxed and watched television.

My main question is about T.O.'s two female assistants.
If this show captures his full life then these two play a significant part in his life. The first thing that I thought of when I saw this is the difficulty that a love interest would have in stepping into his life.

I assume that my man has taken a break from committed relationships because I see no way that he could maintain one with these two in his life.

Don't get me wrong. They all seem to be good friends and I don't see anything romantic going on between him and these two. At best they will act as two sisters seeking to block an outsider from ever having a chance to "take their brother away".

The "Janeane Garofalo" Effect Among Black Propagandists

The "Janeane Garofalo" Effect Among Black Propagandists

And you wonder where Janeane Garofalo got her strategy where she alleges that RACISM is the motivating force for those who disagree with Obama.

Look no further than the stories seen today on the web site "TheGrio" to see a heavy dose of this same tactic:


Why is this important?

Previous presidents where dogged by some extremist groups seeking to discredit them. None of them had to worry about having RACISM alleged as their motivations. That is until we got a "Black guy" president.

The truth of the matter is that such claims of racial motivation is nothing more than attempt by the left to silence or discredit the critics.

Note: I don't agree with the forces challenging the Obama birth certificate. Obama's mother is an American. Thus he is an American, regardless of where he was born. It appears that the Hawaiian birth certificate is legitimate anyway.

Just imagine if Boyce Watkins had called the "9/11 Truthers" racists or some other means of dismissiveness?

With regard to the "Willie Horton" comment - this author knew what he was doing. "Willie Horton" is a code-word for a Black person being used incessantly in media imagery to garner a certain response in WHITE FOLKS.

Why is it that "Mission Accomplished" or other tactics are not seen in the same way, or vice versa?

Tom Joyner Wants To Talk About Race - As Long As He Gets To Play The Victim Role



Let the conversation be about crime and violence in the Black community and force him to see it as a problem INTRINSIC to the current culture and THEN you will see him clam up.

Instead he and other Progressives love to talk about race IF the problems are seen as "derivate behavior".

As with the comments of Attorney General Eric Holder from earlier this year - they are open for comment when they are able to put others on trial.

The Morphing Of American Health Care



This is actually a very very funny cartoon. The AJC's Mike Luckovich is a smart guy - even though he is a lefty.

Funny until you start inspecting the facts.

While Mr Luckovich details the consistent resistence to nationalized health care by the conservatives he is not going to plot the same historical time plot in regards to the growing expense of these same federal entitlement programs.

The key programs set up in the spirit of FDR (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid) are the 3 Horsemen of the Appolclypse when it comes to the long term risks to the nation's economy.

TV One To Do Sunday "Black Politics Show"


TV One to Begin Sunday Show Aimed at Black Politics


With all due respect - can someone distinguish for me "Democratic Politics" with "Black Politics"?

Aside from Reparations I can't think of any Democratic Platform that the Black Establishment is opposed to.

Please note - don't get confused with the assumption that they agree with the Democrats when the party is forced to "go right" (which is actually centrist). The fact remains that this is a disagreement with TACTICS rather than agenda.

FAIR AND BALANCED?

This will be an interesting point. Whereas some feel it the "Black duty" to disagree with Fox News because they are "right biased" I wonder if they will hold TV One to the same standard? The fact that so many of them have a poster of left wing attack man Keith Olbermann on the wall next to the mounted "Obama limited edition plate", I find it rather difficult to believe that they will be demanding balance from this TV One show.

What Is A "Slave Catcher"? Must Be Something That Some White Bigot Came Up With

[quote]Slave Catcher to the nth degree.[/quote]

Rikyrah - could you tell me what a "Slave Catcher" is in functional terms?

If you are calling the Black folks who, during slavery times, had been conditioned into the American way of life and then traveled to Africa to go into the inlands to TRAP otherwise FREE Africans....your label is both ignorant and problematic.


You see, Rikyrah - a FREE African was a HUMAN BEING - a FREE and EQUAL HUMAN BEING prior to being tracked and then captured, warehoused at Goree Island and then put into slavery upon reaching the shores of America.

The term "slave catcher" makes the case that they were SLAVES prior to being caught.

A DOG CATCHER catches "dogs".
A fox trapper catches "foxes".

In your quest to slander a Black man who you don't agree with.....you ASSAULT ALL BLACK PEOPLE by referring to our FREE ANCESTORS in Africa as "Slaves that simply have not been CAUGHT YET".

It would be nice to see YOU stand up against the torrent of your highly bigoted ideological buddies and ask them to STOP using this IGNORANT term just as you would no doubt STOP them from using the N-word or calling a female the B-word.

Since I have seen you lead the charge in calling Clarence Thomas the same vile words that WHITE FOLKS used to call a Black man before his lynching - I am not sure that you have this courage within you when around your friends.

I can only imagine all of the little Black girls in Chicago that you talk to about not FOLLOWING ALONG WITH THEIR FRIENDS. Instead you tell them to THINK FOR THEMSELVES, holding the line about what they believe. Taking the teasing and peer pressure that they might receive. But becoming STRONGER and more clear as a result.

(If only you would start with Christian Progressive-Fundamentalist. You get her in line with a STANDARD, the rest of your bigoted friends would be easy.)

From "The Magical Negro Murder" To "Reference Belligerent White Man Who Didn't Get Arrested"

[quote]I've seen a white man scream and holler at a white state trooper and only get the ticket he had coming and that video footage gets shown on America's funniest videos. [/quote]

Aaron:

Perhaps then that Prof Gates should look for that particular jurisdiction that this White man that you speak of (and I think that I am familiar with the lunatic man that you are speaking of who was pulled off on the side of the road) and recreate his own rant which he did before the Cambridge cops.

I struggle to understand how you all provide an (assumed) logical basis for your arguments.

I knew of the "Magical Negro" who always swoops in at the blink of an eye and "kills the cop" instead of the convicted Black man (Mumia Abu Jamal, Jamil Al Amin, Troy Davis).

Now I will have to expand my domain and look at the "Reference Belligerent White Man" who always seems to do the same thing that the Black guy did but avoids arrest.

Whereas the Federal government's "National Institute of Standards and Technology" has the official reference for the pound, the meter, the yard and the gram and an atomic clock - all of them locked up for safe keeping so that all other institutions wishing to create a highly precise item will always be able to access an unchanging REFERENCE STANDARD......Aaron - I am willing to work with you to find this "Reference Belligerent White Man" so that we can place him among these other important reference standards and thus scour th nation seeking to calibrate the point at which a "White Racist Cop" should ARREST ANYONE who dares cross the line.

Should we do an audio recording of his voice? A video tape? Or do we need to find an actual White man to put up in a display case? His room and board might get expensive over time.

(Are some of you all proud of yourselves? Really.

I use sarcasm to hide the pain that I feel inside, knowing that some of you all are not PLAYING. You are really damaged in the way that you lead on.)

The Root.COM "We Understand Barabra Boxer's Perspective Now"

The other shoe dropped

When I saw the video tape of the head of the "National Black Chamber of Commerce" going up against Democrat Senator Barabra Boxer of California (and yes I did watch it in its entirety including the "My husband is a veteran as well" comment from Mrs Boxer) I KNEW that at the end of this the "usual suspects" would be castigating the head of the NBCC while tacitly defending Barbara Boxer.

No doubt their primary inspection would be of HIM and the question of "Is he a Republican"?

What was on display was the Democrat's worse nightmare. To have a factionalized Black America that now disallows them to play their own racial games is not a comfortable thing for this party.
What better way to nip this in the bud than to have the "Democrats who are Black" to go after this wayward Black guy?

TheRoot.com - please find the references to "Cap And Trade" - the legislation under discussion by the Senate - anywhere in the NAACP REPORT.

This was the germane point of their discussion.

Cythia Tucker - Call It (The Republicans) As She Sees It (Them)

AJC: Calls to fix traffic are familiar

As I was cutting and pasting the link above I was thinking that maybe I need to put myself on trial as well.

The issue is about the Georgia transportation funding proposal that crashed and burned in the recent legislative session. One side wanted to allow regions of the state to collaborate on regional transporation solutions. The rural legislators opposed this plan. They know that the Metro Atlanta region is the key economic engine for the state. To them "localism" means that they will be cut off.

Admittedly, as did Ms Tucker - I noted how the traditional positions of the ideologies had switched in this debate. Where as Ms Tucker focused on the Republicans who all of a sudden are against "local control" I looked at state senator Kasim Reed, a liberal Democrat who effectively told the rural folks in South Georgia "Keep your hands off of our Atlanta money". Of course this is not the typically position of the Democrat.

As the legislative session came to a close with the stalemate intact I could not understand why they could not develop a hybrid. Use 75% of the money for regional projects and break some off for the rural.

Don't think that Ms Tucker and I are kindred spirits, standing on the opposite sides of the same fence. I am able to make note of the actions of both the Democrats AND the Republicans and call them both out. Ms Tucker only see Republican "strikes" as she shows great anticipation of "Striking Them Out" on a called 3rd Strike. She would like to throw them out after 1 strike if she could.

The Competing Drug Companies Within The Black Community - The NKKKCP vs The GOD-P

From Booker Rising:

[quote]And they are not going to stop carrying "prison shanks" into the high school if blacks become Republicans.[/quote]

SouldBrother:

Did I ever tell you about these two competing prescriptions that each of a set of twins were given with the purpose of CURING the ailment that they had?

Both of these these brothers took their drugs reliably with the expectation that they would one day be CURED just as the television commercials that were sponsored by the respective drug companies had marketed to them.

Drug A was made by the company "NKKKCP". Their drug was more popular with the people "who looked like" the twins. Most of the ads from the NKKKCP often focused on attacking Drug B instead of specifically noting the benefits of their own damned drug, pointing to scientific evidence of their own effectiveness. In fact there are cases of deaths by OVERDOSES of the concoction sold by the NKKKCP.

Now Drug B was also problematic. In fact it was a sugar pill and had no paramalogical benefit either. Unfortunately this drug company which is called "The GOD-P" has serious image problems. It seems that all of the rogue drug company executives from the "NKKKCP" jumped ship over to the "GOD-P" - or at least this is what the backers of the "NKKKCP" tell us. Thus the drug from the "GOD-P" is not used by "people who look like the twins".

Despite this fact of low usage this drug is blamed for more deaths of "these people" than where the drugs are actually available for distribution.

SouldBrother - the real problem is NOT the DRUG COMPANIES. The problem is that the community that the twins live in DOES NOT HAVE AN "FDA" type organization.

This organization's ONLY JOB is to evaluation the EFFICACY of any drug that purports to cure an ailment.

Thus, SouldBrother - it is ironic that you ask "is the GOD-P's drug ANY MORE EFFECTIVE than the NKKKCP's drug. In truth, if you were not bigoted you would be noting the MASS DISTRIBUTION of the NKKKCP's drug, note its FAILURES to provide any pharmacological benefits and then seek a RECALL of this drug - just as you have been advocating against the ineffective drug of the GOD-P's concoction.

The fact that the NKKKCP's drug has been more pervasively MARKETED with the marketeers from the company shedding their corporate uniforms and blending into the masses, functioning as insidious operatives should have YOU, as an unbiased member of the FDA to mandate NEW LABELING REQUIREMENTS.

All members of the NKKKCP or the GOD-P seeking to do covert marketing within the community MUST wear a corporate badge from their home company AND be escorted around the community by a fully vetted member of the community.

SouldBrother and TPDB - do you wish to wear the badge or become OBJECTIVE members of the FDA? In truth I am not sure that either of you could pass the background check that is necessary.

In Cynthia Tucker's World This Should Qualify As An "Attack On Obama"

Obama’s next stop: Main St.

I realize how difficult writing this type of article is for Cynthia Tucker.
You see her default form is to "speak in the voice of Obama". She is more comfortable in attacking Republicans to clear the way for Obama and other Democrats to have an easier time in implementing their agenda.

Most Americans know that it will take a while for the economy to recover, but they expect Obama to make economic revival his number one task. Those photo ops in glittering palaces were a bit off-message


Cynthia Tucker is not yet at the point where she is prepared to go on the attack against the Obama Administration in her support for the economic interests of the American public. Obama's presence in office IS the evidence that the American public's interests are being served.

For the first time, President Obama’s overseas travel, with his photogenic family in tow, seemed jarring and discordant — out of touch with the everyday woes of constituents back home. As photographers flashed pictures of the first family abroad, analysts were poring over the depressing economic news of continuing job losses. Somehow, photos of the Obamas in resplendent, gold-bedecked palaces smacked of Marie Antoinette.

It’s not the president’s fault that the gathering of the G-8, the world’s biggest economies, was held overseas just as second-quarter economic reports revealed that unemployment in the U.S. had jumped to 9.5 percent. But, now that’s he’s back, it will be Obama’s failure if he doesn’t grab the microphone immediately to remind the nation that he has a plan to revive the economy and produce jobs.

Vibe Magazine Folds

Vibe Magazine Folds - Loss of 16-year-old magazine leaves marketplace without mainstream hip-hop/ R&B title.

I have subscribed off and on to Vibe over its 16 year run. It certainly was a higher quality outfit than some of the other alternatives in this space. Sorry to see it fold.


Vibe magazine, the urban glossy founded in 1992 by legendary producer Quincy Jones, announced on Tuesday (June 30) that the publication is folding and will no longer produce print issues or publish its Web site, Vibe.com.

With the closing of the title, effective immediately, there now remains no large circulation print publication dedicated to covering hip-hop, R&B and fashion on a mainstream level.

During the magazine's memorable 16-year-run, a number of iconic covers were produced, chief among them images of Suge Knight's Death Row roster adorned all in black, and simple, striking photos of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Aaliyah to mark their deaths. The magazine, however, will forever be remembered for its controversial coverage of the East Coast/ West Coast hip-hop rivalry, which inspired many of the scenes from the film "Notorious."

A number of notable editors helmed VIBE over the years, including Alan Light, Emil Wilbekin, Mimi Valdes and current editor-in-chief Danyel Smith. (This reporter and MTV News Hip-Hop Editor Shaheem Reid both spent time on Vibe's staff as well.)

You Mean Even White House Reporter Helen Thomas As Gone After Obama More Than AfroSpear Ever Would Think To Do? No Way!!

Helen Thomas hits White House for lack of transparency

At the White House presser on Wednesday, several correspondents questioned the way the Oval Office selected questions from the public for today’s virtual town hall.
President Barack Obama answered pre-selected questions Wednesday afternoon about health care sent in from emails, Facebook and Twitter. CBS’ Chip Reid and columnist Helen Thomas thought this reflected a lack of transparency at the White House.
“It feels like the concept of a town hall, I think, is to have an open public forum. And this sounds like a very tightly controlled audience and list of questions. Why do it that way?” asked Reid.
White House press secretary Richard Gibbs deflected the question, but that only raised the ire of Helen Thomas, UPI’s veteran correspondent who has long been at the top of the White House press corps totem pole.

“We have never had that in the White House,” Thomas said, referring to the degree that press events are pre-scripted in the Obama administration. “I’m amazed, I’m amazed at you people who called for openness and transparency…”
That’s when things got testy, and Gibbs looked very uncomfortable as Reid and Thomas took turns attacking his evasive answers.
“Calling reporters the night before, telling them they’re going to be called on — that’s shocking,” Thomas said, referring to an incident last week when Huffington Post blogger Nico Pitney was given advance warning that he would be called on to ask a question on behalf of the Iranian public.

My Rebuttal To Filled Negro's Question

My friend Filled Negro was tipped off about my rant against him. He made a post about me and my words.

Well actually he didn't say much about my detailed documentation about what is really going on WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY.

Instead he did the expected. He asked me to detail "What has my party ever done for Black people?"




Alright, Filled Negro. I just read my own work.

I STAND BY EVERY WORD THAT I SAID.
Thank you Keisha for reading my blog and "holla'rin at your boy".

I have to apologize to you Filled Negro. For I made a post about YOU but did not give you a hat tip that I did. I did create this post, however, having just submitted an entry into one of your message threads.


Here is what gets me as the STANDARD TACTIC used by you and other BQPFRCs, Filled Negro:

[quote], tell me what your party would do to improve the plight of people who are poor in urban A-merry-ca and poor people in general?[/quote]

Here is my rebutall:

1) I HAVE NO PARTY. I am a Black Conservative Independent.

2) My goal is NOT TO PROMOTE THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. Instead it is to DISLODGE the Onchocerca volvulus worm known as the Democratic Party from the NUCLEUS of the Racial Consciousness of BLACK PEOPLE, forcing them out to the PERIPHERY and forced to WORK AND DELIVER upon their promises before they can get support from our community.


You see, Filled Negro: I REJECT YOUR CHALLENGE about ME proving to YOU what "my party" has ever done for Black people.

Get this, Filled Negro:

There is a Democratic drug and an evil Republican drug.

You and the Black Establishment told OUR PEOPLE for the last 50 years that THE DRUG THAT THEY WERE PUSHING UPON BLACK AMERICA was going to CURE US of what ails us. That the OTHER DRUG was a concoction of deadly substances that was sure to KILL US.

Filled Negro the present state of Black America makes your challenge to me rendered irrelevant, obsolete, diversionary and COWARDLY of you.

With EVERY SINGLE KEY INSTITUTION in every single metropolitan area that has a Black voter base of at least 35% MONOPOLY DOMINATED by YOUR PARTY your challenge to me to SHOW YOU WHAT THE REPUBLICANS HAVE EVER DONE FOR BLACKS falls on its face.

I have a better TIME HORIZON than you do Filled Negro. You see when I did live in Philly there was a struggle to have the PROGRESSIVES take over the schools, the municipal offices and the state and federal representation. I know EXACTLY what the strategy of the ground game was. I listened to my adult neighbors talking to my parents.

Fast forward, Filled Negro, and we see that to-damned-day the PROGRESSIVE, DEMOCRATIC PARTY controls all of the key chess pieces on the board in your God forsaken town!!

YOU WON FILLED NEGRO!!! Your spirit should be content.

Yet as I continue my conversations with my family and friends who remain in the area I see that a good number of them - despite being loyal Black DEMOCRATS have jetted from the city proper and they live in South Jersey, Delaware and the suburbs northwest of Mt Airy,etc.

Filled Negro - one of my friends lives in LIMERICK PA!!! How many Black people lived in LIMERICK 25 years ago? Hell when I was growing up we knew that if we crossed over 63Rd Street - we'd have to fight the White boys for coming into their turf. Now we have Black folks living in LIMERICK, near the nuclear power plant.

I am very observant, Filled Negro. I listen to their MOTIVATIONS for moving out. Despite their Democratic and Progressive leanings they have VOTED "no confidence" in the aggregate environment that is in place despite their POLITICAL victories.

I coined the term "Black Flight Progressives" in accordance with what I am seeing with Black folks who are exiting the Progressive counties in Metro Atlanta to live next door to their Ideological Enemies yet STILL VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATS. They will not change their POLITICAL VOTE. Instead they'll change their ADDRESS.

It is perverted that they are actually receiving their "Black Best Interests" of quality education, safe community, strong local economy (ie: retained home values in this recession) by MOVING NEXT DOOR TO THEIR ADVERSARY than they are able to obtain while living in the place that their favored ideology controls.

Thus, Filled Negro - I FULLY REJECT YOUR QUESTION THAT YOU ASK OF ME TO SHOW YOU WHAT THE CONSERVATIVES HAVE EVER DONE FOR BLACK AMERICANS.

I know that YOU KNOW in your heart the REAL question that needs to be asked is:

Now that the PROGRESSIVES have control over our communities.......JUST AS WE HAVE ARRANGED IT.......which of the key PERMANENT INTERESTS have been addressed now that we have FAVORABLE PEOPLE in power?

* Are your schools preparing our young people for the new set of challenges that they'll face?

* Are the communities safe enough to allow Black people to gather together on the streets to socialize with each other, building a strong fabric amongst the people without fear of crime?

* Are the local business districts sound enough to create JOBS for those within the community as it produces a venue for those in the community to trade their goods and services within?

* Is the prevailing lifestyle one that promotes health? The goal of living a long, disease free life, absent the nagging ailments that come from unhealthy choices or risky behavior?


You see Filled Negro "You are WINNING but you are LOSING at the same time".

I marvel as I read BQPFRC blogs and monitor radios hows such as Warren Ballentine. You offer great specificity about what the EVIL REPUBLICANS are doing to harm the Black community. Yet when it comes to confronting the problems WITHIN you all always talk about what "WE NEED TO DO AS A PEOPLE" but NEVER do you link this present state of grievances up with:

* Your Ideology and its failings
* Your Prevailing Political party and the control that it has

As an ideological bigot you are disinclined to DO INTROSPECTION so that these problems might be solved.

Thus the Democratic Party will continue to GROW IN POWER.
Your best interests will continue to remain UNFULFILLED. You are thus forced to live for election night victories to take away the pain that is in place during the intervening periods.
