Dina, it keeps happening.
Are you familiar with John Taylor Gatto's Underground History of American Education?
If not, check it out.
I came to political Black partisanship by way of a stretch of cognitive activism. Thanks to a lengthy correspondance and collaboration with a great programmer focused on issues of mind and culture and how some people come to resist or be naturally immune to dopaminergy - I came to the realization that the Black cultural aesthetic is in large measure a defensive adaptation against cultural and psychological predation by dopaminergic culture (which is almost identical with western culture). In fact American Black culture it is the strongest and most durable bulwark against dopaminergy in the world.
Our cultural aesthetic, while quite thoroughly western in many regards, and clearly in this world - is not entirely of this world, n'ahmeen? Ishmael Reed prolly came closer than anybody else to narratively distilling and capturing the essence of the thing.
(Dumain's critical flip-flop on Reed is equally fascinating and well worth considering for what it represents, as well)
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son.

LA Unified Schools, one of the biggest in the country, no longer celebrate Christmas. That century old national tradition and sacred religious holiday can now only be referred to as "Winter Break" or "The Holidays".
What used to be called Easter is now "Spring Break". However, Rosh Shashona and Yom Kippur are official holidays.
Last year at the Christmas show ... excuse me ... the "Holiday Fest" ... I asked one of the teachers why my kids were singing a Stevie Wonder song. She said the previous year the kids sang "Silent Night" and received complaints about religious songs sung in school, so this year they couldn't sing anything with word "Christ" in it.
Secular fanatics like Skip like to argue that they the anti-Christmas fanatics are simply separating church from state. Bullshit. They are just replacing one religion with another.
They took "Christ" out of Christmas but we have a holiday for Demons and Witches. Halloween is a big deal these days. EVERYBODY participates.
However, few people know the true origin of Halloween. It's marketed to kids, so they assume it is innocent. Funny how people will attack rappers for "influencing" kids, but dress their kids up like mass murderers and fill their stomachs with sugar.
Tom Sanguinet, high priest in the Celtic tradition of Wicca (witchcraft) said "The modern holiday we call Halloween has its origins in the full moon closest to November 1, the witches’ New Year. It was a time when the "spirits" (demons) were supposed to be at their peak power and revisiting the earth planet." He went on to say, "Halloween is purely and absolutely evil, and there is nothing we ever have or will do that would make it acceptable to the Lord Jesus."
They are attacking religions that worship God, and attempting to replace them with religions that worship Satan and money.
Black people flocking to Ron Paul in droves.

God gave me grace
God put a smile on my face
God made me shine like the sun
Sometimes I feel like I'm the one

"We told Barak to fire the little fake fag gospel singer, but he wouldn't listen. Says he is afraid to lose the "black vote"? Yeah. Right. Like those welfare recipients vote.
Cross us again Mister and OJ will poll better than you."
"We can't even bring Minister Farrakhan to a black college without pressure from the Jewish lobby. A black college, with a black president, to teach black students, and you can't even bring Minister Farrakhan. But they will sponsor "Collegiate Cuties" or "Girls Gone Wild" or "MTV Spring Break in Cancun" and nonsense like that."

The Lakers surround Kobe with Luke Walton and Lamar Odom for three years and Jackson couldn't get past the first round.
Who gets blamed? The dude hittin' the buzzer beaters. Go figure.
Jackson must be using those Zen mind control techniques on the sports media and Laker fans, because this guy escapes criticism like a NeoCon.
Has decadent consumerism gone too far?

Robert Bailey Jr, one of the "Jena 6," has been receiving tens of thousands of dollars in CASH donations, which he keeps at home in his bedroom.
He bragged about it on MySpace and posted pics of himself rolling around in 100 dollar bills, and putting them in his mouth...
Damn. What's next? A video tape of these guys in a hotel room with drugs and guns while confessing to attempted murder?
So much for 'boots on the ground'.
protecting you, protecting Donald Trump,
making money for Haliburton,
but when they come home
they are living out of their cars.
What are they doin'
with all that money?"
Through the story of Herold Noel, a homeless Iraq war veteran suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and living out of his car in Brooklyn, the film reveals a failing system and the veteran’s struggle to survive after returning from the war. When I Came Home follows Herold’s battle with homelessness and PTSD as he tries to get help from the VA, city agencies, and various veterans organizations.
With temperatures dropping in New York, Herold meets fellow vet Paul Rieckhoff, founder of the country’s largest Iraq veteran advocacy organization. What follows is a media blitz that transforms the young, homeless veteran into the leader of a new movement.
Actress HALLE BERRY has been forced to issue a public apology after making an apparent anti-Semitic joke on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO. During the taping for Friday's show (19Oct07), the Oscar-winning star was showing Leno distorted images of herself on a computer, when she said: "Here's where I look like my Jewish cousin!" as a picture of her with a large nose appeared. When the joke received no laughs from the audience, Leno quipped, "I'm glad you said that and not me" - Berry requested the footage be scrapped. However, an audience member tells New York gossip column, PageSix, "Ms. Berry should know how unbelievably inappropriate her comment was. She should be ashamed of herself." But Berry insists she did not intend to cause offence. She says, "I so didn't mean to offend anybody - and after the show I realised it could be seen as offensive, so I asked Jay to take it out, and he did. "What happened was I was backstage before the show and I have three girls who are Jewish who work for me. We were going through pictures to see which ones looked silly, and one of my Jewish friends said (of the big-nose picture), 'That could be your Jewish cousin!' And I guess it was fresh in my mind, and it just came out of my mouth. But I didn't mean to offend anybody. I didn't. I didn't mean any harm. Please God." The scene was cut from the show.

"I had to cop out to 3 1/2," Prodigy said during the interview. "It's serious right now. The hip hop cops, they all over us son. They took my bullet-proof truck, they found a lil hammer in my car, so know I gotta do a lil' 3 1/2.
"I got a long record, but I beat all my cases because they were all illegal searches and this was an illegal search too, but the cops got on the stand [and] they was lying and all kinds of stuff ," he continued. "I was facing 15 years, so through the cops lying and the judge and the DA (District Attorney), I had to cop out. There was no way for me to win."
Prodigy sent out some kind words to T.I., who was recently set up by his bodyguard in a sting by ATF Agent (see "T.I. Arrested, Home Raided By Feds In Atlanta "). The Mobb Deep rapper said he understands what T.I. is going through and has seen it first hand -- when cops tried to get him to set up 50 Cent, the head of his label.
"Much love to T.I. and his whole family. There is no telling what's going on right now,' Prodigy said. "I've seen it first hand for myself that the cops is lying. When they locked me up they tried to get me to set up 50 Cent. They wanted me to plant drugs and guns in his car. I was like 'Hell no, I ain't doing that.' They told me if I plant stuff in his car, they would let me walk."

I like Dogs Too. But 5 Years In Prison, A $20 Million Bonus & $40 Million In Endorsements Is A Bit Much
skip sievert said...
Yea man, lets go and phuck up some dogs for kicks. Groovy yea, lets rip em apart. Maybe some of us will get a hard on.
Denmark Vesey said ...
Nah man, let's go crucify a person for phuckin' up some dogs. Let's really stick it to 'em. Let's focus national scorn on this dog abuser. Let's paint him as the worst, most evil man in America. Yeah. Let's start a slogan "Neuter Vick!" Yeah. That's the ticket.
Let's keep these stupid Americans distracted and angry at a football player while we steal billions of dollars and kill thousands of people.
What's distasteful about self-righteous Neo-liberals, is their breathless outrage over the deaths of pitbulls, yet these self-proclaimed "Secular Humanists" remain oddly silent when it comes to the deaths of children.
Skip, below is a post about Salee Allawee, a little girl who lost her legs in a US air-strike. Notice you didn't say anything there. Where's the dripping sarcasm when it comes to real human beings? What? Little brown Arab girls aren't as fashionable a cause as blue pitbulls?
What Bill say? Come On People!
Skip, Maybe ya'll should call yourselves "Secular Dogists" because it's not humans that you love.
As long as this government is killing children men shouldn't be put in prison for killing dogs.
Harry Potter. Innocent Children's Book About Demons, Witchcraft & The Occult or Sick Anti-Christian Social Engineering?
Millions of fans around the world were yesterday digesting the news that one of the main characters in the Harry Potter novels, Albus Dumbledore, is gay.
The revelation came from author JK Rowling during a question-and-answer session at New York's Carnegie Hall. It instantly hurtled around the internet and the world. News websites in China and Germany announced starkly: 'JK Rowling: "Dumbledore is gay".' One blogger wrote on a fansite: 'My head is spinning. Wow. One more reason to love gay men.'
Harry Potter 3: Witchcraft for Dummies
by URI DOWBENKO
Just as Mel Gibson’s movie ‘Kill Jesus’ (not to be confused with ‘Kill Bill’) introduced millions to the joys of “Christian” sadism & masochism, the Harry Potter books and movies have promoted the Occult and Secret World of Witchcraft.
In fact, the success of the books of J.K. Rowling (or her ghostwriters) is due to mankind’s endless fascination with the Astral Plane -- the dimension of time-space that is the Collective Unconscious and the fount of dreams, nightmares and fear, as well as emotional pain and trauma that lasts for lifetimes.
‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’ then is an illustrated guide to the Astral Plane, as seen through the eyes of the Illuminati and their scribes.
After all, it’s not easy being an Illuminati kid. First there’s boarding school, being sent away packing, since Illuminati don’t have any time for kids. They’re too busy running the world, of course. That was the point of ‘Princess Diaries’ (for Illuminati girls) and ‘Spiderman’ (for Illuminati boys).

Ten-year-old Salee Allawee of Iraq talks to USC students at an on campus.
A Detroit DJ and promoter is backing down from plans to sponsor a party at a local club that would allow “light skinned” black women into the bash for free, according to a report in The Detroit News.
Promoter Ulysses “DJ Lish” Barnes cancelled the event at Detroit’s Club APT after word of the party spread on the Internet, triggering a flood of angry emails and phone calls from around the country and highlighting tensions that sometimes flare between darker-skinned and lighter-skinned African-Americans.
“I made a mistake,” Barnes, who describes himself as a “dark-skinned” African-American, told the Detroit News. “I didn’t think there would be a backlash.”
"I didn't mean to offend anyone," he said. "I had planned a party for other shades (of black women). We were going to take a shade of color each week. Next week was going to be a party for 'Sexy Chocolate' and the week after that ‘Sexy Caramel.'”
Barnes told the Detroit News that he plans to host an event to raise money for a charity to make up for any problems or pain he caused over the party flier.
Kimberly, that attitude is ... uh ... sexy. Not a trace of "offended victim". Nice
