More Poems for Michael Brown: June Jordan's "Poem About About Police Violence"

The world needs our poets. I think of what Jordan, Cortez, and Maya Angelou would be saying if they were alive. However in looking at “Poem About About Police Violence” written by Jordan in 1974, perhaps they already said it all. 207 more words

The Coming Race War Won’t Be About Race

Will the recent rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, be a tipping point in the struggle against racial injustice, or will it be a minor footnote in some future grad student’s thesis on Civil Unrest in the Early Twenty-First Century? 1,530 more words

Paladin Justice reblogged this on saboteur365 and commented:

[caption id="attachment_9268" align="alignnone" width="584"]Black protesters in Ferguson, Missouri Black protesters in Ferguson, Missouri[/caption] Kareem Abdul-Jabar, the alleged author of this reblog, is full of it. The article is an effort to divert attention from race, where the attention properly belongs, to class, which is nonsense. Furthermore, Mr. Jabar's writing is better than that of most professors at the university that I worked with. I strongly suspect the article was written by someone at the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a truly vile liberal advocacy organization, and then polished by a professional writer. The gist of the article is that white Americans must unite with blacks and browns on the basis of class. The logic is that the poor white and the poor black are getting screwed by the System and should unite to fight the System together. One little problem. Poor blacks are mostly on welfare, receiving benefits paid for by whites. Poor whites are mostly working class people who reject the culture of shiftlessness that characterizes the black race. The idea that poor blacks and poor whites are victimized by the System in the same way is nonsense. Poor blacks simply don't have the IQ to make it higher up the rungs of the economic ladder, nor do they have the work ethic of poor whites. Poor whites were screwed by the globalists who said we would be better off if our manufacturing jobs were shipped off to Mexico and China. What we weren't told is that not everyone is capable of doing computer programming. We also weren't told that large numbers of Indians (dot heads, not feather heads) and Asians would be imported into the US via the immigration system to do those jobs on the cheap. Poor whites and poor blacks united? Like oil and vinegar. One group is addicted to gibsmedat, while the other group has had the rug pulled out from under its feet by the power elites, led by Jewish central bankers in the US and Europe. For the most part, poor blacks are not being "held back." Water seeks it own level and poor blacks are mostly at that level. Remember the slogan promoting Mexicans, "They do the jobs Americans won't do." The slogan references blacks implicitly if not explicitly. Any politician sincerely interested in helping poor blacks and poor whites would cut off immigration to the US, which would have the effect of raising wages through the market system. They would denounce vile rap music and other black cultural aspects that promote shiftlessness, illegitimacy, and gangsterism. They would place quotas or tariffs on imports to promote domestic manufacturing, which would open up jobs to the poor black and poor white alike. They would wean blacks off their gibsmedat benefits and teach the spiritual value of hard work and accomplishment. None of it will happen, though. The System is so thoroughly powerful and corrupt, nothing short of its complete overthrow will do. A good place to start would be to do as Ron Paul suggests and abolish the Federal Reserve. The Fed is the glue that holds the System together, which is why the power elites love the Fed. But don't expect poor whites, blacks, and browns to come together to see to it that the System is overthrown. As a black rapper might say in childish ryhyme, "The nigger that loots be the nigger the cop shoots."
