A Broke White Pulitzer Prize Winner Finally Gets A Clue

Conservatives won't join shit, but a mob, saying others didn't work hard enough

It's only when whites go broke that they start to get it:

First to go: the insistence we've all been living equal all along,...

Why I Left The Right: A Preponderance Of Racists, Silly

"He's a Democrat, so it's O.K.: Get 'Em!!!"

It just never stops with these idiots.

Ever since the white conservatives laughter at Trayvon Martin's parents, the defiant attitude of Obama and his supporters has been made clearer and clearer, while the racial corruption of the Republicans (and their ilk) has been beyond a major disappointment. It's like scraping old paint off something that's (supposedly new) only revealed to have worthless, destructive, rust underneath.

I've pissed off a lot of people but I don't care: they're pissed because I took their ideology seriously and found it, and them, both wanting - and because (shamefully) I was right to do so. If they're not full-blown racists, they hang with racists, or vote with racists, or side with racists, or defend them. Anything but siding with black folks, who they duck behind the word "Democrat" to slander, like a black man wouldn't notice the deception: they "don't see color," so feel they can criticize and/or hurt blacks (myself included) at will - so long as they can say they're fighting the other party. None of America's racist historical context allowed. Except when they sneeringly call it a "plantation," like their hands are clean. My ass.

We've got your number now - just as I always said we would - and events are over-taking you all: racist and not-so-racist whites alike. It's time to change your tune or prepare for your inevitable defeat, the charade is now over - and history will not be stopped:

Because I, for one, will never buy another word, any of you will ever say, again,...

The Interview Is Nothing: Where Are The Black Movies?

Only in this racist country does it make sense to have 400 years of a mind-bending story and, instead of telling that, spend our time making white guy comedies just to piss off a Korean boy king:

I think it's been a deliberate plot to keep our similarities to South Africa hidden from view,...

Why Are Blacks So Touchy About Voter Suppression?

Oprah Winfrey, in a scene from the new Civil Rights movie, "Selma"

This sick practice was happening in my lifetime, but whites today insist - and I do mean insist - that, like slavery and all of America's other racial ills, it was ancient history. It's a fiction they need for some odd reason.

Considering how desperate they are for it to be true, we blacks can't help but to wonder why.

And that's not helpful,...

There's Something About Wisconsin That's All Wrong

They seem to think they're being so damned cute,....

"Playing The Victim" Is Easy (Being One's Complicated)

Damn, but this is a huge understatement:

Whoever wrote that, seriously, has no idea how unhelpful this deception has been - to individuals, communities, and science. How a belief in water can ricochet into deaths, and divorces, and other horrible crimes, far beyond anyone's imagination. Screaming into the night, for years on end. The very thought - that anyone, much less millions of people, could buy into something so destructively stupid - will leave me pondering humanity's inherent weaknesses for the rest of my days. (As though racism hadn't already.) And the manufacturers should all be locked up - in prisons or insane asylums. Who goes to work each day, puts on a lab coat, and produces nothing? It's mind-boggling. And amazing.

But, somebody did write The Bell Curve - and others still believe it - so I really shouldn't be surprised. By anything. 

I'm black, and - thanks to white folks - seen it all,...

Tales Of Real America: Murder On A Sunday Morning

Tales Of Real America: The Trials of Darryl Hunt 2006

Are You Sure It's Black Men Who Are "Thugs"? Really?

I see black men as what we are: an oppressed minority, doing what we have to do, based on the situation before us. I don't know what the rest of y'all see:

Whatever it is y'all is, you got us all wrong,...

Utah: When Visiting Somewhere Is All You Got In Mind

Salt Lake City Hoping To Boost Tourism By Reminding Visitors They’re Free To Leave At Any Time

A Black Man Killed Some Cops: Let's Go Get Ice Cream

The cops need a new slogan beyond "don't resist" - it's so old

Whites are particularly clueless now - actually, they always were

Unless you don't think about it, too much, having been black's permanent condition in this place. You don't have to think on much of anything, too-much, anymore. Not necessary. Nobody cares. Haven't you heard? They're building a "colorblind" dystopian NewAge with no past. The best of Left/Right thinking. I watch the movies.

Assassinate Bill Kristol has a nice ring to it

Free range, completely organic, and obviously yours.

Think again. Along with the financial crisis, we also got a new, massive, deficit of imagination, so deep even Hollywood can't think no mo: America's "promise" is now limited to the hope that a Dr. Oz could become a beloved celebrity, peddling “baseless or wrong” medical advice to your momma. (Like "I'll only put the tip in," a boy can still dream,...) 

The American Dream - is white criminals getting away

Strange, that hardly anybody could catch on to Oz - even when he was on television internationally (it was a British study that revealed him - not us) and there were people already calling him a quack online, TMR included. As Oz paraded across our TV screens each day, he proved - to me at least - the nature of law enforcement is "none." American education? Doesn't exist. Crime? A title reserved for black guys. Ethics? Come on. Whatever safeguards we imagine are in place - against anything? Non-existent. Whether or not, on a mass scale, anyone's using logic at all? The evidence clearly says "no." The Secret said you drew to us whatever you imagined and - wow - was that ugly.

Listening to ignoramuses is intelligence squared and can't be stopped

All of this occurred to me while trying to “boost my immune system” preparing for “competitive yoga.”

Just keep repeating "It's not about race" and, I swear, race will go away

Yep, surrounded by stupid, and have been for a long, long time. I live in a place consumed with staying on the wrong course. History says that’s just how they roll, and history doesn't guarantee happy endings. It explains they consider idiocy brave and/or patriotic:

Everything has a connection to slavery - even you

We can change this

The trick is to getting these deplorable assholes, we actually have to live with as they "make up their minds," to admit they’re wrong. It’s not easy - and especially not without them losing their fucking minds. For instance, you can say “Justice shouldn’t warrant an apology,” but whenever that simple right - which blacks are still fighting for after centuries of South Africa-style treatment - is trivialized as “playing the victim,” well, that’s when you know you’re getting a special taste of America’s particular madness. If anybody's the problem, it’s Obama. Riiiight. Blacks were always the ones “making progress” with his election - not whites. They’re fine. Always been fine. Will always be fine, and they don’t know what your problem is.

Stay in the shade and you won't burn - everybody knows that

"You can get it if you really want but you must try, try and tryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy"

Well, for one, the propensity to hide things - like the history needed to judge your present actions. It's deliberate, and dishonest, to repeatedly put Rudy Giuliani on TV and not a historian. It doesn’t build trust. It's the spreading of lies and ignorance - just like Dr. Oz. We need to be on the stoop, out in the open. 

This is normal, and so much better

Chilled but not shaken

Yes, this weekend in New York, something happened that blacks have predicted for centuries, and whites are more upset than normal. On behalf of my peoples, we're sorry trying to live white's lie isn't more fun. This struggle, forced on us, isn't either. 

This is abnormal, and getting so much worse

But - in case you haven't noticed - this propensity for solipsism will be no replacement for justice,...

The Slave Catchers Turned Their Backs On NY's Mayor

Anybody still thinking "race doesn't matter"? So much so that whether or not Jeb Bush is running for president was last week's most important story? Really? 

I guess I've just been intellectually outclassed again.

So what have we got now? New York City police officers have decided to look more like a New York City gang, throwing a temper tantrum with guns, saying it's "wartime" against,...someone (let me guess!) because they've lost two of their own. I wonder who will get hurt under this "wartime" against a dead man? Tell me: is it common to make this kind of declaration, against a vaguely-defined enemy, whenever cop killers are out there - and even after we know the perp has killed himself? 

It strikes me as an odd thing to do and say, that does not scream "To Protect And To Serve" at all. More like something they'd say to reinforce the idea they're even more determined to strike,...someone.

So does turning their backs to their - our - elected officials. Or declaring those officials to have blood on their hands for trying to protect their own children from a very real threat - the cops - because those kids have black skin.

As events move forward on these re-examinations of American history, I think the NYPD would be on much safer ground to claim, and remember, a slave catcher's job was always to simply do as they were told:

Enforcing society's justice, and injustices - not their own - as this society sees fit.

And then start acting like it.

And not like just some common gang,...

Change Is Hard –- Even Harder When We Carry History

Nobody talks about why we left Cuba, but you know why,...

If Hating Whites Is So Wrong, Why Has Hating Blacks Worked Out So Well For American White's Success?

I didn’t say it, it was a "SONY leak: Denzel Washington should not star in lead roles overseas because the world is 'racist’.“ I coulda said it. Coulda said it a lot. I’ll say it now. Done.

Come on, you’ve got to be pretty fucking dense to miss that message - and the fact Hollywood makes shitty movies - but, right here and now, we’ve also got The View’s Whoopi Goldberg chiming in and saying she does “not agree with the blanket statement that America is racist.” You have to remember: she also once admitted to not being sure if we landed on the moon, so Whoop’s on her own here.

Next, we’ve got a Wisconsin law professor giving evidence she’s not "a reasonable, objective person,“ which is kind-of-close to inching-toward integrity, somewhere in the world, so,…Bra-vo for that.

Somebody must think he’s making good on his promise to try and transform this place, because the Associated Press is reporting that President Obama “is shaking up the governing status quo and creating a new normal for his successors.” After the wacko whites recently went on a gun buying frenzy and everything. Balls of Steel.

The 10 best moments in political comedy this year. Gotta have that. Like Soylent Green, they’re people!

Speaking of people, Bill O'Reilly Attacked Samuel L. Jackson For “Jumping On The Grievance Train” like everybody else who's black. Apparently O'Reilly thinks Jackson should jump off. I think a new O'Reilly book, called “Killing Samuel L. Jackson,” is in order. A perfect gift from Sumpin’ Claus.

And BTW - Democracy Sucks. Whether it was ever any good is now back up for debate. Is Daniel Ellsberg still alive? I’m just asking. Thinking about attending The Miscegenation Ball but I need a date-that’s-not-a-date, youknowhatI’msayin’?

And finally, Kendrick Lamar visited Stephen Colbert to prove he’s running out of ideas, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a mess because the induction committee (like Ann Althouse) has bad taste, and not only is “Liquid Fire” real but - even if you’re Criming while white (and you know you are) when I can’t - Hillary Clinton still wants you to know BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Though we’re all the same,…
