After Belafonte Criticism, Beyonce, Jay-Z Step Up for Trayvon Martin

ewposq

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

The people have spoken, and the Carters have answered.  Shortly after the stinging public criticism of her husband’s diss verse against Harry Belafonte, there’s been an uptick in the activism category on the busy schedules of Beyonce and Jay-Z.  This week, as the world expressed its rage about the Not Guilty verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman, Beyonce and Jay showed up to lend their support at a Trayvon Martin rally in New York.

Then, going beyond the call of duty, Beyonce posted a petition in support of Trayvon on her website.   These were some of the words on the petition:

“We are still struggling with the issue of inequality and the lack of value for a black man’s life. Trayvon Martin’s most basic civil right, the right to live, was violated. We have made so much progress and cannot allow hatred and racism to divide us. When we all join together, people of all races, we have the power to change the world we live in. We must fight for Trayvon the same way the generation before us fought for Emmett Till. I joined over 570,000 people in signing the petition below, and hopefully you will, too,” she said, linking to the petition.

Making matters even more interesting, Beyonce posted a picture of her visiting Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta and remembering the important contributions of the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.   I certainly hope the reflection was sincere, and that Beyonce is growing in her understanding of the black struggle, as well as her role and opportunity to be a part of it.  She should also learn from her friend Oprah Winfrey that sometimes, fighting for what you believe in means being strategically tough and controversial.

There is no proof that Belafonte’s words had anything to do with the Carter’s actions, but it’s awfully curious that this is the first time that I can recall Beyonce supporting any petition of any kind that might somehow be interpreted as an attack on the Obama Administration.  Obama Administration Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett takes her celebrity friendships seriously, and tends to interpret even modest requests from President Obama to be tantamount to black treason.  So, one shouldn’t take lightly Beyonce’s decision to put her name behind a petition that asks the Obama Administration to do anything.  They don’t seem to appreciate any degree of African American discontent.

I’m always smiling when celebrities step their game up, and I am happy with what the Carters have done this week.   Now, I only hope that Beyonce can convince her husband to never again write lyrics insulting one of the greatest civil rights icons in history.  Harry Belafonte’s sacrifices as an entertainer nearly left him unemployed, broke and d**d.  He is older than Jay-Z and Beyonce put together, so they should respect his wisdom and see his tough love as a call to arms for a community that is in deep peril.  For all of the money that black folks spend traveling to Beyonce and Jay-Z concerts, I hope they will remember that support should be a two-way street, and not just one where your audience is asked to “Watch the Throne” while you’re sitting in it, draped in diamonds and gold.

On a similar note, the Trayvon Martin tragedy wasn’t just painful just because of what happened to Trayvon.  It was symbolic of the millions of other Trayvon Martins around the country, many of whom are racially profiled, making them more likely to be stopped, arrested and incarcerated, even when they commit the same crimes as whites.  Just a night in jail can scar and destroy a person for life, and too many of our kids are being fed into the criminal justice system at an early age, either as a victim of perpetrator (the case of straight A student Gabbriella Calhoun is a perfect example of how good kids are destroyed by police who abuse their authority).

As a result of consistent racial profiling by police, millions of black men are part of the criminal justice system, and even more have died.  These are the men who were meant to be husbands and fathers in our communities, so we cannot allow their fates to be determined by an imbalanced and unjust system.  The same thing is true for all of the women who are now being affected.  This is destroying our families, and ultimately our community.  You only need to hear the messages in our music as a reflection of what has happened to black America as a result of being polluted by a corrupt criminal justice system.

These were the images that were discussed when I spoke extensively with Russell Simmons about our joint campaign to stop mass incarceration.  Over 175 celebrities, scholars and activists signed the letter that Russell and I wrote to President Obama, and our sense of urgency was driven by the fact that the black community is in a state of crisis.

Any statistician will tell you that when it comes to unemployment rates, urban violence, educational inequality and incarceration rates, black America has hit rock bottom.   We’ve gotten used to the idea that our families are falling apart, that people can’t find jobs, that our kids can’t read and that every other black man is going to prison.  We cannot accept our g******e to be part of business as usual, and Trayvon’s d***h is the social alarm clock we need to understand just how deep this problem goes.  But as with any alarm clock, you can’t just hit the snooze button.  You’ve got to get your black a** out of bed.

Times as dire as these require every soldier to line up and be prepared for battle:  Beyonce and Jay-Z included – No justice, no peace, no excuses.  It’s a new day in black America.

    viral infection you get when HS 1 and HS 2 combine for an infection site.

    This may well offer you enough prevention from fever blisters on lips.

    Another cause of cold sores comes from the ultraviolet rays of the
    sun. Some approaches to bad sores therapy might also concentrate
    of aiding in the hindering of abscess from breaking out.

    Even when you do not have an active outbreak you can pass the

    Obviously, the more you engage in frequent and unsafe s****l practices, the more likely you are to eventually come into contact with HPV or any one of
    a number of other sexually transmitted diseases. It is wise to take precautions such as wearing
    sandals in a public shower to avoid contact with the shared floor surfaces.
    So the logical solution is to always practice safe s*x,
    particularly when you have a new s****l partner.

    Rosacea is a condition that has pimples in the middle third
    of the face. These prescribed drugs can have side effects so be sure to consult your physician
    if you are experiencing any symptoms. If a person
    adds plenty of water to this diet, the skin will show positive
    results in a very short period of time, with skin that renews itself quicker
    and that has a natural, healthy shine.

    Each of the Sunday talk displays failed to question the right query of Susan Rice. They should really have asked her if Obama and Israel can afford to get wrong about when Iran will have a nuclear weapon? The press should be talking about the long term negative impact it is going to have on Obama and the Democratic bash if Iran succeeds in obtaining a nuclear weapon below Obama’s watch

    now that human papillomavirus (HPV), not herpes, causes cervical cancer.
    In addition, red bumps may begin to appear after several days, which can then rupture, becoming oozing or bleeding ulcers.

    You’re right. There is no proof that what Beyonce and Jay Z did was related to what Belafonte said, but so what if it was? More attention should be given to those who fail to step up when major injustice is evident – celebrities and non celebrities alike. Standing for what’s right is EVERYBODY’S job, not just Jay Z and Beyonce’s.

    My Letter to Black People:

    Black people act like an abused woman who is in love with her abuser. Then she gets mad when she gets hit again. She’s thinking: ‘I thought you changed. I thought I was able to change you. Why am I still going through this? You said you wasn’t going to do that anymore.’ The problem is the abused woman is failing to see the reality of her abuser and because she doesn’t see this, she fails to respond appropriately. She allows her abuser to define her. She has not yet reached her level of self respect where she demands that she will no longer be abused by white people and will take them to a higher authority (United Nations and World Court) for prosecution. She lives in denial. All of the things that she worships white people for actually apply to her but she doesn’t know it. If she looked at her history she will see this but instead she listens to her abuser define her and tell her that she has no history worth looking at, she is ugly, stupid, bad, calls her expletives, etc. Sometimes she will even call herself those same expletives. These things attack the self esteem and self respect that she needs to confront her abuser and free herself. When her self esteem and self respect are attacked and she believes and internalizes this, she will act in self destructive behaviors because she believes she is worthless and is allowing her abuser to define her. This feeling of worthlessness in some Black people results in self destructive behavior among Black people.

    This tactic, on the part of the abuser, is not an accident. It is done on purpose, which is why, for the freedom of Black people to occur, we must know our history. In it, you will find your truth as well as the truth of the white man, your abuser, and it will reveal the lies that the white man, your abuser, has been telling you for centuries. It will reveal their criminality and savagery. Remember, the abuser is a killer and has no remorse. Remember the Native Americans. His lack of remorse is shown every day as he celebrates his ancestors who killed, raped, enslaved and stolen from our ancestors. And if he can control and condition your mind enough, he will have you celebrating them also. This shows you what he is. By doing this, he is telling you what he is.

    When the abused woman has really had enough, and she needs to develop self esteem and self respect to do so, (learning her truth and history is a great way to gain self esteem and self respect, which, again, is why white people discourage Black people from learning our history), she can free herself or die trying. She must decide that she will live free and not as a slave, (mental or otherwise) or die trying.

    They tell us not to look at our history. They say it’s in the past so forget about it. They present it under the context of white supremacy (slavery, struggle for civil rights, etc) but NOT our ancient history. They present us with European history: the Greeks and Romans, who actually were educated under the Africans but they don’t want you to know that so they can have you worshiping Greeks and Romans and not the Africans who taught them. They will tell you they brought civilization to the peoples of the world when in fact, it was African people who did this. It was Africans (Moors) who attempted to civilize Europeans during their Dark Ages when they went there in 711 AD when the Europeans were dying from their own filth and diseases. Europeans, particularly the Spanish, responded to this with the expulsion of the Moors from Europe in 1492 and the implementation of the slave trade, just as they responded to the Native Americans in North America who taught them how to survive the harsh winters with g******e and stealing the land … and you celebrate Thanksgiving every year. Save their lives and they’ll k**l you. These abusive people do these acts to Blacks all over the world.

    In the US, Blacks should think of this country as the house in which the abuse takes place. They b**t us, k**l us, rape us, rob us, lie to us, trick us, mislead us, condition us to hate ourselves so we commit self destructive acts, (which is a function of the system of racism/white supremacy and our self destructive behavior feeds the system of racism/white supremacy, which is why they want us to continue so they can use that as a justification to destroy us) and do all of these things to keep us subordinated to them so they can ultimately k**l us and / or use us to make them money (slavery – like the prison industrial complex).

    We have integrated into a society that has a racist / white supremacist ideology. White people are not going to change this. Our subordination (mental, physical, emotional, spiritual, economic, cultural, educational – or rather, our miseducation) brings them benefits. This is why whites celebrate their ancestors who have killed, raped, enslaved, stolen from and terrorized our ancestors (Columbus, Washington, Jefferson, Cortez, etc.) because these people brought tremendous benefits to white people from the crimes they committed against our ancestors and at our ancestor’s expense. This is why ‘Black’ is considered to be bad, wrong, ugly, evil, etc. This is why the media shows negative and / or stereotypical images of Blacks. This is why there is police brutality and injustice in the courts. This is why there is the funneling of crack into the Black neighborhoods by the Federal government. This is why there is a criminalization of the image of Black people to more easily put them into prisons to provide workers in the prison industrial complex. This is why they claim that the children of the Black pyramid builders, science and mathematics discovers, arts and architecture originators, etc. are not intelligent. This is why they don’t show Blacks as intellectuals but as entertainers (sports, music, dancing, comedy, drama). They teach lies and distortions to our children in their integrated schools. They claim Blacks are on welfare when in fact, colonialism, imperialism and slavery are welfare systems for whites because they are living off of our lands, resources and labor that they have stolen from us. They present us as criminals when they acquired and hold our lands, resources and labor through criminal acts. They say Blacks are lazy when our labor not only supported them but built this country in the first place. They show us as v*****t when it is through their violence that they acquired our lands, resource, labor … and even US! Other examples of their violence are police brutality, rapes, the violence of the klan, lynchings and castrations, destruction of our Black Wall Streets like Rosewood, FL and Tulsa, OK as well as others (therefore destroying our economic base and independence), the decimation of the Native American population, not to mention what they do to themselves. In fact, they ran out of Europe to escape their own violence which included anything from the Inquisitions, religious persecutions, witch hunts and tortures of various kinds. Modern day examples of their white on white violence includes shooting sprees in malls, colleges, high schools and even children in elementary schools. So Black people, we must not allow ourselves to be defined by such a v*****t culture of people. If Black people allow themselves to be defined by this society, then they will think badly of themselves and they will exhibit the negative, self destructive behavior that many of us have. We must look to our ancient ancestor’s example of correct living (Maat for example) and relate to each other according to that model.

    After our abusers do all of this to us, they tell us to forget that all of this has happened and it’s all in the past (forget our history), forgive them (as the white Jesus commands) and the abused woman obeys. Then, the cycle starts again. The abused woman also refuses to see what is in front of her face every day, which is the reality of what has happened to her neighbors who suffered under the same abuse: the absence of the Native Americans.

    Black people – learn your history, understand colonialism, imperialism, and the SYSTEM of racism/white supremacy. The system of racism / white supremacy is a calculated, orchestrated system, not a bunch of isolated acts of discrimination and hate as you might think it is. Know that the systems of colonialism, imperialism and racism/white supremacy are the systems that support white people but destroy us and white people are not going to destroy the systems that support them, regardless of how friendly or nice they may appear to you. Some may appear to be assisting you by attacking the SYMPTOMS of these systems, but they will never attack the heart of these systems directly. Therefore, they are complicit with these systems and are keeping them in place while they are presenting you with a false image of themselves that you are believing as true. Don’t pay attention to the superficial stuff they do as a people. Look at the TRUTH of the BEHAVIOR and the END RESULTS that they want: non-white population decimation, acquisition of other’s land and resources for their own benefit, mass slavery for their own benefit (mental and physical slavery), falsification and forgery of Black historical figures. These acts are done for our destruction. Black Christians – research your history so you will find the person you call Jesus was actually Black. Research the Black Madonna and Child and its origins. Find out WHY the IMAGE of Jesus was changed from Black to white, which was to get you to pray to WHITE. Read Neely Fuller and study the works of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing on the system of racism / white supremacy. Civil Rights is like asking the abuser for justice because his courts are in his house. Go to the United Nations World Court as a people and tell the world EVERYTHING about the abuse we have suffered in this stolen house called the United States. Quick, easy lesson to prove in human genetics: if a Black person and a white person have a baby together, the baby would be a ‘person of color’. That means that Blacks are genetically dominant in terms of skin color to whites. Therefore, the first human beings on the planet had to be Black. White people can not produce a person that is genetically dominant to themselves. If the first people on the planet were white, everyone would be white. But Black people can produce an albino (a genetically recessive person). Understand, as Dr. Frances Cress Welsing states, The Creator of the Universe made the original human being Black and all of the other colors of people come from Black people. If you hate yourself because you are Black, then you hate what The Creator of the Universe has made. If you learn to love yourself and love what The Creator of the Universe created when He created you (Original Human Being, who was Black), then you can access that Creative Force to help you to free yourself. Bottom line: learn to love yourself and other Black people, stop engaging in self destructive behavior, stop allowing yourself to be defined IN ANY WAY by your abuser, learn your history and decide once and for all, that you will NO LONGER BE ABUSED by a people that your color produced on the planet that The Creator of the Universe put YOU in first. Black people, you are the first people to inhabit all lands on this planet so stop allowing yourselves to be defined, and ultimately destroyed, by the last people to appear on the planet.
    Once we are successful freeing ourselves as a people, worldwide, then we can concentrate on healing the planet that has been poisoned by the abuser during it’s sick pursuit of wealth and power that it wanted for its own benefit but at the tremendous expense of others. They treat the Earth the same way they treat us. See what they do to The Creator’s creations? Then, we can live on the Earth according to the indigenous wisdom of our ancient Black ancestors and the guidance of The Creator, who put us here in the first place.
    Wake up sleeping giant. Black people, go to the United Nations World Court.
    With MUCH, MUCH, MUCH LOVE
    P.S. Trayvon Martin – May you rest in peace in the presence of The Creator of the Universe, the One who created you as He created the first Black human being. Ultimately, you will have justice.

    Black Outrage should be directed at those who came before and did rob and k**l others. So if white woman seem scared on elavtors and car doors lock when we walk by it’s because whites were shaped into this stereotype thinking. There is a reason why people behave the way they do. “Dropped locks” is a learned behavior. If 50 youths all of a sudden show up a store on Michigan Avenue in Chicago, is the store owner supposed to welcome the business? Expect a good day in sales? Or is his store about to be cleaned out? History says the later.

I consider Derrick to be a brother of information, so much so that I have been doing my share of researching OURstory. I ‘ve always wondered why KKKrackers never liked us and my research has led me to believe that we are the originators of modern day living. much of what is going on today can be traced back to our ancestors in Africa and most people don’t know that at one time, we were the first to claim America as ours, way before the Indians were even thought about, South America included. we need to also BOYCOTT and start our own businesses and stop giving these KKKrackers our hard earned dollars so we can circulate them through our communities and prosper.

      I don’t like to brag and boast, but I have a son, who just graduated from college with a Major in Information Systems Technology and a Minor in Marketing! Any more questions?

      Also, I am returning back to college to continue my degree in Communications…I am a junior! Any more questions?

      Now, let’s get to the nitty gritty; as far as, a ‘dangerous’ mind is concerned; you MUST read a book entitled “THE ICEMAN’S INHERITANCE” [Prehistoric Sources of Western Man’s Racism, Se.xism and Agrression by Michael Bradley, and there is an introduction by Dr. John Henrik Clarke.

      HERE’S A QUOTE FROM THE BOOK:

      “Bradley delves back into the Ice Age to find prehistoric sources of the white race’s aggression, racism and se.xism. The author offers a persuasive argument that the white race is more agressive than other groups.”

      Now, what were you saying about me being dangerous?

      Read the book, and see, who the REAL ‘dangerous’ people are on this planet! Hint: THEY AIN’T BLACK!

      By the way…the author of this book is a caucasoid!

Notice alot of celebrities & athletes haven’t put themselves out there?.. AS A. MATTER OF FACT (like the petition concept)…. The Carter’s being the BOSS they are…TALENT being TALENT could enlist a number of artist from each region and “{under one stream of consciousness }” (Not Michael Jackson.

    As much as I would love to threaten people over social media and go off about what I would like to see happen to certain people. I’m not. But here is a small sample of what I would like to see.

    1. George Zimmerman and his entire family tracked for the rest of their hopefully short lives. I don’t care if Zimmerman is hiding out in a pot of rice in China. I want someone there to post his picture and address on any and all internet media for the rest of his time on Earth. Why shouldn’t we keep tabs on a child murderer?

    2. Either Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature get this Immoral Law they came up with off the books or they can get the same treatment Zimmerman gets. Tracked and hunted for the rest of their lives. Remember when Bush started his evil fake War against Iraq killing millions of people just so Haliburton could make a few extra sheckels. They printed up a deck of cards of people most wanted in Saddam’s Army and dropped thousands of the decks all around Iraq. If you saw anyone on the deck it was open season. Print some of those up for everyone who took part in creating this Law that got Martin killed. Or do you spineless Blacks need a whiteman’s approval to call anyone your enemy?

    3. Boycotting Florida is one thing but go deeper and harder. All these so-called Black clowns who play for any Florida sports team during this boycott get a Black people ban for life as far as I’m concerned. Don’t cry me a river either. If you are good enough to play for the Gators, Dolphins, Heat and make millions of dollars for some white family in Florida you can take your Black behind anywhere and do the same thing. Let’s see how long Rick Scott keeps his job when the cable revenue for all these sports teams dry up when Black people stop paying for that sports package. Let’s see if that new library is getting built at A & M with no Black running backs for the touchdown and the alumni money disappears. You can threaten a Whiteman all day but when you take away his paper or what he thinks he owns like grown men who play sports for him. Then that’s when you will see some changes.

    4. Serious propaganda supporting this cause. I need artist to create symbols clowning Florida, I need comedians to shame and talk as much cra p as possible about anyone supporting this State while this Law is in effect. I need all you rappers who love using your lyrical ability to tell me how many tons of coke you sold, how many Black men you murdered, how many sisters you date raped. For once in your sorry lives. Put your talent to some real use and make some music that will get in these kids heads and ears about the seriousness of supporting a system or government that wants your money but doesn’t care about your life.

    These kneegrow simp apologist weak spined intellectual mental excuses that if you are not firebombing something or shooting someone and maybe not brave enough, have the financial resourced to contribute to this cause that you are meaningless and should not even stand with us, are a bunch of b**t kissing chimps that love this system. EVERYONE brings something to the table including the waterboy who gives the soldier’s a drink on the battlefield and the armchair revoluntionary who spreads the news as much as they can. You all bring something to the table and don’t let anyone convince that you don’t because you don’t meet your enemies requirements for a contribution. Fight with whatever skill set you have and bring help bring this Law down and these Evil Men to meet their justice. This isn’t the 60′s anymore. We have new tools for a new battlefield.

    Keep in mind everything I wrote is legal. Unlike calling for open murder. It is completely legal to stop giving your money to people who don’t care about your life with supporting cable and sports teams. It is completely legal to track some child killers whereabouts and post his picture on the net. If he can follow people, he can be followed. It is perfectly legal to crack jokes, shame and ostracize people from you your community who don’t support your beliefs. When their money starts getting messed up let’s see who has the Power then.

    With all due respect to my people that live in Florida. Until that Law is gone and Zimmerman and Scott get what they deserve. EFF Florida, say it Black and say it Proud!

    I’m out.

The only truth, is that they have REFUSED to join the BOYCOTT!!! We. Don’t need anymore LIP SERVICE in the black community!!! Start boycotting, it becomes easier and you can become more creative with your boycotting as the months and years pass by!!! I have been BOYCOTTING FOR four years!!!

    Black people need to GIVE UP on buying into the white slave masters MATERIALISTISM AND CONSUMERISM! It is worst than an ADDICTIVE DRUG! Just look at how it helps to keep black people down…how many black hair care products are manufactured by black people??? How many black people design and manufacture clothes that actually fit us properly…how many black people own grocery stores, how many black people own family farms, how many black people are actually producers in HOLLYweird, that project black people in a positive way…how many black people are financing the music industry, that creates uplifting music, with a positive message to get black people up on their feet fighting for our cause???? The how many list is endless!!! Start boycotting white business and fake black people who promote white racism…and the money that is saved can go further to finance our cause with our money!!! This is how black people have control!!! Allowing white people to finance our colleges, establish the NAACP, and other organizations…keeps the white people in charge!

      WE MUST GET SOME REAL LEADERS LIKE MALCOLM X, NAT TURNER, SOJOURNER TRUTH, HARRIET TUBMAN, IDA B. WELLS (who was the FIRST woman, who didn’t give up her seat to a white boy 72 years BEFORE Rosa Parks)!!! WE NEED BROKE, POOR STRONG REBELS, WHO ARE “RICH” WITH TRUTH, AND REVOLUTION TEACHINGS! A REVOLUTION AIN’T NOTHING, BUT A CHANGE…A REAL CHANGE!

      This marching and posing with puppets don’t mean shyt! I’m glad you can see through these negroids! Sharptongue is too old, and it’s time for some new ‘ingredients’ to put into the soup!

      We are gonna be s**t down, talked about, lied on, but our fore fathers and mothers went through the same da.mn thang! WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PLEASE EVERYBODY! You will have some bottom feeders in anythang we do!

      Y’all strong Black women make me feel proud! This is what these caucasoids don’t want us to do…he doesn’t want us to UNITE and become ONE, like we did back in the day!!! The O’jays said, WE MUST HAVE UNITY!!!

      THIS IS ALL WE NEED!

      I need a new car, but I ain’t buying shyt! Do you know Black people buy more Mercedes Benz than any race? Just OBSERVE these greedy screachas, who are not saying a word about our condition. They want ALL the ‘gold’ for themselves.

      Black people MUST separate from this religion called xtianity! IT HAS BLACK PEOPLE MESSED UP MENTALLY! Why do we have to DIE in order to enjoy or just rewards? What the he.ll can you do when you are 6 feet under when rats, roaches, water bugs and every da.mn thang else is eating your d**d azz up?

      How long will negroids keep waiting for a caucasoid to come falling down from space to save their d**d thinking azzes. Negroids are d**d mentally and spiritually!!! That melanin needs to start circulating their wave-lengths!

      Haven’t y’all been manipulated long enough?

      @PAUL GEARY: “AGAPELOVE,LOYALTY,COMMUNITY=UNITY VOICE FROM THE BAYOU”
      +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++=

      AGAPE LOVE MEANS:

      “The “lying lore of Western Christianity” describes Agape love as the love of God or Christ for mankind. Wrong!

      The origin of the word is Greek (Greek means gay). Therefore, any referenced meanings coming from this ‘nefarious’ group are not going to be accurate nor original as far as truth and enlightenment is concerned.

      THE GREEKS INTRODUCED BU.TT FVCKING TO THE WORLD!

      Agape love is SAMESE.X love. Therefore, any other reference is incorrect. It is no wonder that religion is so confused, confusing and backward.

      Due to the fact that this man-made construct derives its information from the so-called Hebrews/Jews and Greeks; both of which were female haters; it is no wonder that the world exists, as it does today, which is biased, se.xist, and full of low moral fiber!

      Christians today use the wrong meaning, and by doing so are actually endorsing; rather than rejecting ho.mose.xuality.”

      WITH THIS TRUTH IN MIND; THIS PUTS A WHOLE NEW MEANING OF XTIANITY AND AGAPE LOVE!!! REMEMBER, queen james DID NOT WRITE THE BIBLE; IT’S JUST “HIS VERSION” OF THE BIBLE!!! ALSO, REMEMBER, HE WAS A GAY GUY!!! DO THE MATH ON “AGAPE LOVE”!!!

      THE BIBLE SPEAKS IN CODE LANUGAGE

      This is what I try teach about this demonic religion that has y’all messed up! There is Truth in it, but you have to SEARCH FOR IT!

      John 5:39 reads: “Search the scriptures…”

      I only quote the REAL scriptures from the bible because Afrikans wrote the ORIGINAL Scroll, which was a Book of Laws!!! As a matter of Truth, the Black Messiah told us that it was written in OUR LAWS, THAT WE ARE GODS!

      John 10:34 reads: “Is it not written in YOUR LAW, I said, YOU ARE GODS?”

      GOD IS IN YOU!!! THE HE.LL WITH AGAPE LOVE; LOVE YOURSELF AND YOUR PEOPLE BEFORE YOU LOVE ANYBODY ELSE!!! IT’S CALLED “UNITY”!!!

They had Black women, who would nurse on the brothers, who were beaten by pigs, biten by dogs, or hosed down by that racist fire department back in the day; and still is racist toward Black firefighters!

      The nurses guild was introduced to the church by these brave women! Today, these negroid females come to the entertainment center trying to pull the screacha, or maybe his wife!!! THIS SHYT IS BODACIOUS IN 2013!

      The Truth needs to be told because the LIES have ran out, and people are ready for a change! They know what’s going on, but some of them are so hooked on that religion, they may have withdrawal symptons, if they shake it loose. RELIGION IS A DRUG!

    I am happy that the Carters showed their support. We have to also remember that some entertainers and artist have the money to do this without worrying about losing money i.e. Oprah and the Carters, they control a lot of their wealth so they can make stands as they see fit. Other artist are controlled and can’t be as vocal. I am more worried about the generation under 35 why are they not speaking out instead of killing each other over things they don’t even own or have stock in. When are we as a people going to invest in our own futures and future generations and not wait for others to step up.

    I go to parents meetings all the time and see maybe 10-20 parents out of 400 kids, where are they? WHY are they not speaking up for their own children, can’t expect others to do for you if you are not willing to do for self. Why children being passed to the next grade and can’t even read and add? This is not the Carters Responsibility it is OURS! I bet you Blu Ivy will be able to read before she becomes two? How about our children there is no excuse.

      Signing a petition is tossing a stone and maybe bruising the actions of evil doers. The BOYCOTT is the A-BOMB that destroys their actions. They still cheap n he most pitiful. Why can’t he speak. Where’ his man?

    I wish I could believe the JZ-Beyonce quick turn around; unfortunately I don’t. What they have is a fast-acting PR staff working to cover them up after getting a load of JZ’s drivel about Harry Belafonte. Fair or not, I certainly don’t believe the posting on Beyoncé’s web site (I’d like to know who wrote it for her). Showing up at a rally was no more than damage control. No doubt, they’ll carry on with their careers and though I wish no one ill, I’ll carry on as I’ve been doing the last several months: basically ignoring them.

    Derrick, I am ready, but how do I boycott. We need a leader or leaders telling us how to go about it. Just boycott is a general statement. This must be organized. I am retired and I have a mental disorder, but I am intelligent. I am willing and able to help. I can’t go outside, but I can work from my computer. What can I do from here? We have got to have direction. James Brown said that “I’m Black and I’m proud and we all started taking pride in our natural hair and loving ourselves. Today, it will take much more. How do I go about doing my part in this movement (once it gets started)?

      You MUST do what the other Conscious Thinkers and Rebels are doing…BOYCOTT any MAJOR department stores, automobile dealerships, and just buy NECCESSITIES, instead of splurging and giving these foreigners your money!

      YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO MARCH, BUT YOU ARE ABLE TO BOYCOTT! YOU ARE HURTING THEM IN THEIR POCKETS; WHILE MARCHING IS PUTTING MONEY IN THOSE STORE OWNERS, AUTOMOBILE DEALERS, HOTELS, MOTELS, RESTAURANTS, AND GAS STATIONS, WHILE “YOUR” NECCESSITIES, THAT YOU MAY NEED HAVE TO BE GIVEN TO SOMEBODY ELSE!!! WHY HELP ‘THEM’ WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO HELP YOURSELF FIRST; LIKE THEY DO!!!

      Do you actually think, these foreigners LOVE you better than they love their OWN? And, that bible tells you to LOVE your enemies! Do your enemies love YOU? How many ‘cheeks’ have they turned when it comes to OUR justice, liberty, freedom, and equality? HUH?

      BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! CRACKERS!!!

      THEY HATE US; BUT LOVE OUR MONEY!!!

    I thought jay was wrong about what he said about the civil rights icon but I never thought he was complete uncle tom. If your not a uncle tom rapper that either trashes your own people or conscious but won’t do or say anything in times like these you will never get signed to begin with. You notice some of the most radical rappers are the most silent . Immortal said the case wasn’t about race and basically told us to teach our children to be slaves. Lastly you can’t forget Lupe he talked about us like dogs and sided with zimmerman. As a reward whites thanked him and his followers on twitter followers went up. Whether or not jay z truly cares about his people doesn’t matter to me. We need help from any where we can get it. What they took from us when Zimmerman got off was our pride. You may have your big mansions and fancy cars but if you mess with one if us we are going h**t you.

    This shyt ain’t nothing, but a front!

    Their slave makers let them go to the rally, so they will not get BOYCOTTED for the products they promote!

    Wake-up y’all this ain’t nothing, but a game! How come the other sc(rappers) are not speaking up, and coming out to support Brother Trayvon? They are controlled, also.

    If they had any ba.lls; they would tell Black people to BOYCOTT!!! But, that would c*t into their earnings. These entertainers today are NOTHING like the Black entertainers back in the ’60′s.

    Smokey Robinson told a theater back in the day; that he was not going to perform, unless the Blacks could come down from the balcony, and watch his show!

    Donny Hathaway was a Rebel also! He was thrown out of his hotel window back in the day because he Rebelled against racist crackers! They claimed he committed s*****e, but the mob killed him!

    Nina Simone was another Black Rebel back in the day. She had a song called TO BE YOUNG, GIFTED, AND BLACK!!! She didn’t take shyt off of crackers.

    The Temptatiions were also Rebels (quiet as it’s kept); they wrote a message song against racism back in the day! It was called “Message From A Black Man”

    Eartha Kitt was another Rebel back in the day; she spoke up to crackers all the time.

    Although, he was gay; James Baldwin was a very outspoken brother back in the day! He was so fed up with amerikkka, he moved to eu(rope)!!!

    Little Richard also spoke up to crackers, and still does to this day!!!

    These were gay men, but they still spoke up against crackers!!! These so-called male gangstas are quiet like house mice!!! YOU CAN’T HEAR THEM!!!

    I can go on and on, but y’all get the message.

    These entertainers and singers were Revolutionaries. These little twits today, ain’t worth two wooden nickels! THEY CAN’T REBEL BECAUSE THEY ARE ILLUMINATI, AND OWNED!!!

    BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! CRACKERS!!!

      Once again Derrick,I’m with what you’re saying. I just found out about this site today,tried others only to see that they are just a front & about making “their own” business,(a name,bling bling, & chin-a-ling). but I’m going to see what this staff of “YBWN” is really about. You know I can’t MAKE you STOP,but I wish you’ld tone down on the “C”word Bro.Derrick.Even the hull of a ship under the sea level has to be cleaned every now & then. And it’s hull above the waterline has to be scraped,sanded,& painted every now&then that it may last. The Children of Almighty God must strengthen,exhort,& uphold each other. The color of the skin doesn’t make one right,(you just attested to that again in your 1st 2 sentences). But those of us who does the Will of Our Father which is in Heaven is what makes Us Right! We NEED Each Other! I can say n***a in the presence of my Brothers who understands the TRUE meaning of the WORD to us. But I don’t say it in “their” presence, and neither can “they” say it in MINE!!! & I trust you know who “their & they” are. Not asking you to lose your power,but that you gain more Strength! Peace My Brother!

        +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

        Brother Trip, I OVERstand what you are saying, but I only underSTAND about the c-word; what does that mean?

        My brother, it’s time to stop including our enemies on our struggles. This is just a coverup when these caucasoids march and sing in these movemments because they KNOW that somethang bigger than marching is going on behind our backs.

        Just because they march with us doesn’t mean they are our ‘friends’. Marcus Garvey went, and talked to the lead imperial wizard of the klan! He said, he wanted to see how they became; so ORGANIZED.

        After he found out how to ORGANIZE, he started the movement to go back to Afrika, and he ORGANIZED a group of people, who were ready to go on his BLACK STAR STEAMSHIP that him, and his people purchased to take his people back to Afrika!!!

        That is what the majority of these crackers are doing when they appear to be involved with our movements! They want to OBSERVE how we are surviving, and they go back, and report our progress we are making to THEIR leaders, that we NEVER see!!! THE PROSPER TODAY FROM OUR MOVEMENTS!

        Today, we have screachas, who own lear jets, helicopters, airplanes, and other transportation, but they ONLY use these vehicles for themselves…the flock can only CONtribute 10% of their earnings for them to fly, but they are NOT ALLOWED to fly inside their toys.

        YOUR WORDS: “But those of us who does the Will of Our Father which is in Heaven is what makes Us Right!”

        You lost me with god mess! I ain’t into religion, my brother; therefore, we may have to side step religion, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some diaglog.

        Just don’t mention ‘god’ and ‘jesus’ because GOD IS IN YOU!!! Didn’t MARY MARY say that: IT’S THE GOD IN YOU?

        My brother, I’m not trying to please negroids or caucasoids because we are living in the most racist country on the planet! It’s time to LOVE OURSELVES, and stop worrying about eveybody else….this is our problem. WE WORRY ABOUT TAKING CARE OF OTHER PEOPLE INSTEAD OF OUR OWN.

        Do you see caucasoids trying to patronize the little businesses we still own? Do you see the arabs, mexicans, or the people from India running to our restarants and stores, that we have left? OF COURSE NOT! But, we patronzie their businesses DAILY!!!

        You must OVERstand that crackers KNOW I speak the Truth, and when I address them in person; I GAIN MY RESPECT! You would be surprised, how they look when I address them like a MAN! It’s a look of shock on their faces because they expect me to hold my head down, and move on! I AIN’T THE ONE!

        YOUR WORDS: “The Children of Almighty God must strengthen,exhort,& uphold each other.”

        Psalm 82:6 reads: “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH.”

        John 10:34 reads: “Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?”

        I’m not into ‘jesus’, but I wanted to show you that the Black Messiah told us that WE ARE GODS!!!

        THE ONLY WAY WE WILL BE ABLE TO UPHOLD ONE ANOTHER IS TO “UNITE ORGANIZE”!!! WE MUST PUT OUR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS TO THE SIDE, AND “UNIFY” AS “ONE”. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY WE WILL SURVIVE.

        WE HAVE BEEN DIVIDED, SINCE OUR FORCED ENSLAVEMENT (500 years); NOW IT’S TIME TO BELIEVE IN OURSELVES, AND THE ‘GOD’ THAT IS WITHIN US; NOT UP IN THE SKY!!!

        BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! CRACKERS!!!

        ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

        I must correct you; I am not a genius; I just LOVE to READ, RESEARCH, and wRITE (the three R’s)! I appreciate the compliment, tho.

        We ALL have different talents, these are just some talents that were TAUGHT to me by my Dad! He was an avid READER and WRITER before he died. He also wrote his people by letters back in the day!

        We communicated by post office instead of long distance! We only called one another for an emergency or during the he.ll-a-days (holidays). WE WERE A TIGHT KNIT FAMILY BACK THEN. We also had to go through an operator, so she could connect us to our long distance party! Today, we can just start dialing anywhere!

        Back in the day it took a week or two to get our mail (depending where you live); now you can get it overnight! This is the jet age, and we must not continue to use old SLOW tactics to fight our new age enemies!

        They (amerikkka) are fighting and taking over other countries with new age bombs called drones, and other weapons that can wipe out a city or village! Therefore, we must change as a people, and stop marching and singing because these 1960 tactics have gone done the drain!

        It’s like; our enemies have bazookas and machine guns, but we are fighting with bow and arrows!!! IT’S TIME TO UPDATE…NOW!!!

        I also got rid of my cable, and I haven’t watched tell-a-LIE-vision in 5 months and I DON’T MISS IT! I go to the library, and research material, I watch documentaries on the net, and I love to write, read, cook, travel, and stay in shape by walking!

        I’m just a Black man out here doing the best I can!

        I’m looking into tutroing some children, if I can get some help! I can rent a room out, but I need some help; just like our BOYCOTT that is coming up; WE CAN’T DO IT BY OURSELVES!!! WE MUST HELP EACH OTHER!!!

        YOU HAVE A GENIUS IN YOU; WE ALL HAVE THAT GOD/GENIUS IN US…START USING IT!!! IF YOU KEEP WAITING FOR THAT ‘holy ghost’ TO COME FALLING FROM THE SKY…YOU MIGHT BE d**d!!!

        Some xtians have been waiting for 60 years, and they’re still shouting, praying, and begging to see ‘god’.

        BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! BOYCOTT! CRACKERS!!!
