First and foremost thank you for the knowledge in which you are passing on to our sister's and brother's of color. I've rather enjoyed this particular live show because it depict the truth on to many levels and the comment you made about blacks being stuck with that plantation mentally took me back to a discussion I had awhile back with my mother. Basically I voiced my opinion on wanting to actually move overseas and she made a comment stating that she doesn't understand why people travel to these different countries when America has many great wonders of its own. That kind of discouraged me in an aspect because she is my mother but after listening to your show I'm feeling very empowered and more eager to pack my bags and just explore for year. My question is what place would best to start my voyage of education?

Hello Gavin...I always wanted to live abroad and take my skills in English, computers and writing along with me. Thank you soo much for the information.
Excellent game Tariq....This makes me want to go get a passport. Matter of fact im going tommorow lol.Blacks do need to travel and get away from massa for a while. We are constantly told that Amerikkka is the greatest country on earth and that other countries are diseased,poverty and war stricken. Black people have internalized these things and have somewhat become brainwashed by that propaganda.True,there are unsafe parts in other countries but there are also unsafe parts here as well.Its time to free our minds from those mental chains and hop our asses on some planes. Tariq you are a true inspiration brotha....good game.
I wish more people would go travel abroad and they would really see the manipulation tactics used by the media. I'm a black man who grew up in Germany the majority of my childhood, so everything since my childhood has always been from a different perspective. I remember when I went first entered my freshman year of college and I had culture shock because there were some things my people were doing that was weird to me. I appreciate this show and keep passing knowledge to our people.
Hey brother interesting how you said you grew up in Germany, well let me be the first to tell you this. This information I am about to give you is shocking to the point of you being anger at the media here even more. Heck anger at the teachers who been teaching you lies here in America. I feel sorry for the Germany people on this one, because of the huge world war 1 and 2 debt they still have to pay, based on a lie. Watch this documentary called Hitler: The Greatest Story Never Told:
Yes this is very controversial, but spread the word brother. Everything that happen in World War 1 and 2 is a result to what is happening to today's wars. The research is out there, and literally everything in this documentary is true. As a matter of fact the never before seeing footage in this documentary should have been impossible to view, and its been banned a few times but it is now still on youtube.
As controversial as it is its important for everybody to watch this even us black people. Marcus Garvey at one time admired Hitler, because of the importance of nationalism(Marcus Gravey as the first before Hitler) both men talk about. Yes the Zionist Jews (the powers that be not the everyday Jew) controls the news media, Hollywood, music industry, influence US foreign policies and control what is said in the history books. They haven't been completely honest about everything that really happen in World War 2. Many world holocaust have been overshadowed by their story of the Jewish Holocaust(the media talk about this more than any other human tragedy before it). In your travels spread this knowledge to our Germany brothers and sisters
First off, thank you for taking the time to make this program of yours, your message is so important, I will be sharing it. Second, I have the solution to our traveling problems as Americans.

Fear of getting "took" renders blacks motionless in a lot of instances. Fear of banks, put money in mattresses. Fear of car salesman, ride the bus or get took by a black salesman. Fear that traveling costs a grip, don't even bother inquiring....travel agent don't want to educate you because they think blacks are just kicking tires.
My wife and I, first time we dipped off somewhere, we went to Honolulu. We stayed in a Marriot it just had a shower no tub, we didn't rent a car, we walked alot and caught the bus a couple times and we had a ball! The experience didn't put us out alot of money and we know what to do better next time. Get some comfortable shoes and go modest the first time and the learning starts there.
Japan, Germany, Belgium, France, Turkey, Hawaii, Qatar, Bahrain, Guam, S. Korea, Iceland, Saudi, Honduras...yeah the military sucks overall but I never would have gotten to visit these places has I not been in it. Good times.
My advice for the first time traveler abroad is to go with a tour group and from this experience you can decide which places you like best to return to for a longer period of time, if you so choose. With a tour group you have a tour guide who speaks the language, your accommodations are pre-paid and booked as well as your meals and transportation to all tour sites. You can't beat it, it's the only way to go.
That is a great idea. I was in Europe last summer and saw tourist buses loaded, literally, with Indians, Chinese, Japanese and Koreans lining up to see the sites.
Those groups were able to negotiate better rates because they brought in at least 50 people at a time. It is Group economics at a different level.
I have been to Europe a bunch of times and got three lessons:
1. Bring good energy and people will give good energy.
2. Dress with some dignity and carry yourself as if you have self-respect.
3. Remember you are in someone else's house and learn at least a few words. Even something as simple and practical as "how much does this cost?" in Italian will earn you a lot of goodwill.
I was amazed at how well we were received, even in places with racist reputations. Europe has a long history of ethnic strife so its concept of race is different from the USA. I read somewhere that the original theories for the Nazis were inspired by what was happening in America under Jim Crow. I don't remember the source for that theory.
Racism isn't as wide spread in Europe like it is in America. if you did research or watch Hidden Colors 3, you realize that America was built on slavery and racism(unlike anywhere else). Many of the Europeans that came here back then, were mistreated and wasn't even considered white until they were brainwashed to adopt such social engineering concept, just like us adopting the social engineering concept of blackness. And your right Europe's concept of race was very different than America. As a matter fact South America, and everywhere else's concept of race is different than America. If you did research on Fredrick Douglas and many other black people that actually traveled back then, were more accepted elsewhere than America. Like Russia for example:
White people love to tell you that other countries are worse or just as bad as amerikkka, in terms of racism. That is SO not true but b/c we don't travel a lot, I never have anyone to help corroborate that statement. We really need to get out more and it's not as economically stressful as people think b/c you pay on your trip just like you pay a bill! You do have to have extra money for things you might want to buy but there's a limit to that anyway (at least that you are willing to declare, lol). Essentially, you don't have to pay for these trips in one lump sum and I think this is a common misconception among us.
I just got back from China about a month ago, and I had read a lot about racism out there. Yeah, the racism is out there, partially promoted by the mainstream media and some other races that travel and want to keep us out, but overall, I had a great time and plan on going back next year. We should be traveling and trying to establish businesses globally. There is a lot of money out there. Just look at the Chinese bringing iPhones back to China and selling them for thousands!
I really enjoyed this podcast, it reminded me of the regional mackin show Tariq did a couple years back, but this time it dealt with international travel. It is very crucial for us as black folks to travel outside the usa, so we can gain a different perspective of the world in which we live in. I hope within the next 5 years I can do some international travel. My first destination I want to travel to is Australia. Also, he forgot about the black missionaries that travel the world and preach the gospel and black students studying abroad.
I have always wanted to travel to Easter Island, it's on my bucket list😎
If you are new to travel, here is a list of interesting black travel sites:
Brothers and Sisters please try to support at least one black owned business especially when you travel in the USA, Africa, and the Caribbean
Please Google Black owned + the city or country
or if you are visiting a country or city that is predominately black ask about "locally" owned businesses
Meetup Groups/Black Travel Clubs
For sure, I do plan to look into these travel groups before planning a trip to Ghana, which I
hope to be in the near future.
*eta: I don't know what happened to my op but had to finish it in another post.
Can someone please enlighten me on whether an ex-con can get a passport to travel abroad. Many blacks have minor felonies that may prevent them from traveling. Just another way of keeping us on the plantation and prevent us from expanding globally. Any information will be helpful..
Situations where you may be denied a passport
•If you have an outstanding warrant
•If you are considered by the State Department as a flight risk for a pending trial
•If, after a manual review, the State Department concludes that you present a risk to yourself or others overseas.
So, generally, an ex-felon should have no problem obtaining a passport. It is just another form of identification. Getting a VISA, however, is another story b/c the receiving country has the right to run a background check to determine if they want you in their country.
Get your record expunged first. Tariq did an ad on a recent podcast (within the last ten I think) for a service that shows brothers how to clean up their identity. I say that because even if you leave the country with no problems at Customs, etc, you may have some coming back - they scrutinize brothers heavily in airports other than Atlanta/Chicago (where there are a lot of traveling people of color - Dallas is the worst I've experienced - I refuse to take connecting flights there anymore).
Tariq was really preaching to the choir on this one - the reason I couldn't donate $1000 to Hidden Colors 3 this time was I put $6000 on my teeth,(longtime listeners know how he roasts people for their teeth) and I went to Taiwan again. I wish he had talked about Easter Island more, like he did about Malaysia (GIMME DOLLA!!!), but I assume that the footage will find its way into Hidden Colors 4 when it drops. Does anybody know if Tariq brings movies to sell at his seminars? Since he coming to St Louis again, I gotta come through up from Memphis... and would like to buy movies without waiting on Amazon (plus its gotta be more money going to Tariq's pocket doing it direct). Pleased if anyone knows... Oh yeah, if anyone wants to know about Japan, Sweden, Korea or Taiwan, let me know... I have been 31 times to Japan in eight years. I don't think just ANYBODY should go over to a foreign country though. Especially if they are military, the majority of people of color doing crimes is people behaving out of their element
http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2008/04/05/national/voices-told-sailor-to-stab-taxi-driver-counsel-says/ This dumb a$$ fool made a lot of trouble for ALL of US.
I have been to Japan a few times (and lived there for a six-month stint), and I spent a few days in Taiwan (only long enough to get a taste of it). I'd like to know more about Taiwan. You can hit me up on my site or my Twitter (@GAGainz).
You know more than me man, I have just visited and had some experiences. I just want to chop it up in this topic, so we can avoid situations like I posted above. During that time, I was in a convenience store in Izu Atagawa and the clerk screamed "Amerikajin killed taxi driver!!!' and literally ran out of the store! When that $$$t happened I was so mad I boycotted the country for two years.
Just came back from A province in China called Anhui. super nice a and very cute people. I report that everyone call me African or American. I didn't care, I was too busy eating good food with my extended family there. And yes, if you have never left the U.s.a, you are at an extreme mental disadvantage. We got it good in the U.S.a BUT white supremacy still sucks. I'm not comfortable being second class, no matter how rich my country. Check out James ESL YouTube channel. It's a brother teaching English.
Of course no other country is as bad as America. The U.S.'s entire foundation is based on racism/ white supremacy.
However, Tariq makes the point that black people are scared and the fear is unwarranted. Is that completely true?
We watch Balotelli in 'football' games in Europe and he is getting harassed and has bananas thrown at him -- that's pretty bad. And billionaire Oprah, being kicked out of a store.
I'm not saying it's that bad, but I can see why some black people may be cautious.
But yea, traveling internationally is the best.
It helps you realize that the world is bigger than what it seems at times. Bigger than your neighborhood, bigger than your city, hell, bigger than your Jim-Crow country.
When you're on an airplane flying to another time zone, it makes everything else seem petty in comparison.
I track European football peripherally and have very little sympathy for Balotelli and the rest of those players. Hear me out. There is a significant number of really talented black strikers playing for many of these teams. The next time a banana gets thrown or the crowd makes monkey noises, all of those black strikers, or a plurality of them need to say they will stop playing until the banana throwers are banned for life from the soccer games.
The UK got control of its hooligan problem by banning people for life from the stadiums. It can be done. The other day, a Japanese man posted a sign at a soccer stadium that the entrance was for Japanese people only, no foreigners. What did the Japanese federation do? They forced the home team to play the next game in front of an empty stadium. No crowds were allowed. Look it up. I guarantee you that type of harsh action will stop the future racist signs.
So these strikers need to walk off and go into the locker room the first time a banana hits the field. Because the next time a guy throws a banana, the crowd will beat him down, plain and simple. They are fanatics for soccer. Overseas, soccer is a tribal activity at heart, and people stick with those teams for life, just like they rep their hometowns.
We keep coming to the same problem of getting on the same page and forming an economic base. Those soccer players, be they brown skinned Arabs or blacks, need to get on the same page with respect to racist fans. That is a simple point. Otherwise, the soccer federation will ignore it.
So again, I feel no sympathy for Balotelli. I mean just get the top 10 black strikers to agree to stop playing each time a banana hits the ground. As a parallel, I read somewhere(again I vaguely remember where, some sports blog) that some of the top players in the NBA had refused to play next season if Donald Sterling remained owner of the Clippers. If black people had no leverage, it would be sad but we have a lot of leverage we refuse to use...which is sadder.
That sounds like a good idea, but I am wondering how unified black people are to pull this off.
I mean if one black man says "I am sitting this one out" if he doesn't get 5 other brothers (or whatever the critical number is) to join... he's S.O.L.
And tbh, I can see a lot of scared coons on some ol'
"I ain't messin' up my paper tryin' to be Malcolm X my nigga"
I wonder how much worse it would be for international black people who don't identify with black because their hair S-curls naturally.
If black people anywhere refuse to use the power in their hands, then they will keep getting what they are getting, plain and simple. I don't endorse it. That is just the reality. Walk off the field and as those ratings, advertising dollars, attendance levels and memorabilia sales go down, watch as the soccer federation miraculously finds a workable solution to the blatant racism. A while back, I saw a GROWN BLACK man crying on the soccer field due to monkey chants and thought to myself: "when did we sink so low?!?" I have QUIT well paying jobs for much less disrespect than that.
And another thing, those Europeans aim racist chants at EVERY melanated player. They don't care which tribe/ethnic group they claim. S-curl, dread, bald etc. They make no difference. I said this before in another thread but I am heartened that so many of the Africans I meet understand that the dominant society does not care about anything other than skin complexion.
I THINK Donald Sterling is gone not because of black players, its because the power-that-be (some rich white illuminati-scale type cats) wanted him gone. Same for this stuff with Goodell. I think they are trying to get rid of traditional sports so they can bring in those straight up gladiator sports like back in boody-diddling Rome days ie Batlle Royale or Hunger Games
Never underestimate quiet storms that start major wars. If you want to maintain white supremacy then you must quell ANYTHING that will rally black people. Sterling had done messier things through the years but his statements kept getting repeated in the press. That is dangerous to white supremacy because even the coon can't defend a Sterling, try though he may.
Donald Sterling's mouthpiece was awesome because he told those rich black players exactly what he thought of them, despite all of their riches. Did you see that Anderson Cooper interview? WOW.
My point is that Sterling told all of black American, no matter how much I pay you, you are still just a nigger on my plantation. That is a call to war. Right now, black people are distracted. Flashpoints like a Sterling or a Ferguson will wake up anyone who is not comatose, coon or bed wench.
I completely believe that a bunch of rich black ball players got their feelings hurt and threatened to sit it out unless Sterling left. How does it feel to have your illusion shattered like that? You are rich and black and he sees you no differently than a slave trader in the South.
Even more succinctly, somehow the two richest countries in Europe, France and Germany, managed to make the phrases Sieg Heil and the Nazi salute criminally offensive yet they can't do the same for monkey chants and thrown bananas? WTF.
Bravo! I have traveled abroad without being in the military or for a hookup-lol. I taught English abroad and had a great time doing it. People are so happy to meet Black Americans because they listen to our music and view our culture from afar. Some places we are treated like celebrities. Yes there is so much mis-information out there about traveling and it's sad. But people who want to listen and do it will find a way.
That is a great point. Black people have a lot of goodwill built up overseas due to the affinity the WORLD has for black music. You will find entire websites dedicated to black musicians run by Koreans, Japanese, Germans, etc. Now, of course we do not want to be known just as entertainers but that musical marketing has blunted a lot of the imagery that would have us portrayed as demonic. I remember watching video of Michael Jackson, back when he was still visibly a black man, going to Japan. Those Japanese people lost their freaking minds. I mean, young girls still in their school uniforms were chasing after his motorcade. I can't remember who said that MJ was the first black man that other (white, Asian) men actually wanted to BE rather than just emulate.
That is why black people have to regain control of black culture and black music. It is necessary to open doors to other cultures. Whenever you see music videos of young men, of damned near any country, they are emulating black men from the inner cities for the most part. It is surreal at times. Even the neo-Nazis have their own rappers. Go figure.
The racism I have experienced outside of the US has come from the hands of white supremacist who thought I was a native or an African from Africa. And once they figured it out I wasn't/wouldn't take no mess from them it all went well...Except for a couple times when a slap or kick was needed
You are right. A lot of the racism that we face overseas will come from White folks that think that Black folks shouldn't leave the plantation. They want to keep the world as their playground and will try to throw salt in our game overseas. Even on forums they try to promote negativity when it comes to Black folks traveling. I am not saying that racism doesn't exist in these other cultures and locations, but much of it is permeated by other travelers trying to promote ill and of course, the mainstream media.
It is no surprise Xi'-an was a terrible dating spot for you. I know Xi can me "West" in Mandarin Chinese. Xi'an people are famous for their caucasian features. That's just an invitation to white supremacist ideologies.
One thing I will say about people outside of the US. They are outside of the propaganda machine. A lot of foreigners understand exactly how the US has been abusive toward the black population. Not because foreigners love blacks, but they rather they can remain objective. So black people still have a chance to write their own stories outside of the USA, simply because other nations refuse to accept the narrative coming from DC and Hollywood. We have an audience if we can at least get on the same page.
I am no fan of North Korea. That regime is evil. But it was hilarious when its state news network called out the USA for killing unarmed blacks. Same thing with Iran. When Iranians and North Koreans are pointing to the rampant police brutality as something NOT to do, black people should have no fear in going out into the world.
There is some documentary out there about an American black basketball player who went to Iran and had a good time, was treated respectfully, etc. It can happen people. Just don't inherit the USA's beefs.
I agree travel is important, but as a black person from the UK I disagree when it's said we dont travel.
maybe AA people dont but we do.
USA, Europe, pacific islands, Africa - my friends and I have been all over.
I have known that AA people dont travel, but a lot of us black UK people do. We usually start between the ages of 18 - 21
I have been to your country and had a great time. People there were mad friendly. Glad to hear that you kept Scotland.
I think the bigger point is that the black Americans have the largest influence so blacks from the USA moving/traveling/networking in the world in sufficiently large numbers will change the status quo. Being a polyglot who travels, from the UK or any African nation, is fairly common. It is cheap diplomatically and financially for Europeans to move around other nations in the EU. And Africa is just across the Mediterranean. Blacks in the UK are mostly outside of the propaganda machine. From what I have seen of UK media, you also lack the coon and bed wench tradition.
Again, not to discount the influence of other blacks in other nations, as I deeply respect the entire African diaspora. But the black population here is uniquely manipulated and oppressed, because we are so close to the power base. If blacks in America start doing anything, good or bad, in large numbers, that carries over to all of popular culture across the globe. Hence the programmed fear of traveling. But I digress...perhaps.
Hors Sfier are you an African or a European out of interest.
& regarding Balotelli if he attacked a fan he'd be finished. The law is different here. I do however agree with pitch abandonment - the other fans would eject the antagonists themselves - and they are 90% white.
Football (you guys incorrectly call it 'soccer' (???)) is the European white mans religion - they do kill over it.
I am a black American, plain and simple. I would never recommend a black player attack anyone for throwing a banana. That is an emotional response. As I said and as evidenced by recent actions by certain authorities, when the owners want to get a lock on a problem they do it...quickly.
Hors Sfier I ask not to offend but to gain perspective on your point of view. You sound unAmerican if you know what I mean, as I have found many in my experience to be insular and slightly intolerant.
I have on some fronts other Americans - mainly those well travelled to be more amenable and open
Most of my social circle growing up was from the 3rd world, so in my mindset I am a 3rd world man. My social contemporaries are mostly black with a smattering of Asians and Latinos. I deal with white people only in specific, mostly work related contexts. No offense to them. I just feel better dealing with groups of other blacks.
As for the insular and intolerant Americans you find, Americans, especially black Americans are a heavily programmed people, programmed to behave a certain way, the same way your desktop computer is programmed to run certain programs. Once I understand that truth, everything else made sense. The challenge is deprogramming and reprogramming. You Europeans seem to have a better handle on challenging the system. I dig that you have more than a 2 party system, as evidenced by what happened in France recently. But I digress...yet again.
if I look at a big picture for this question my answer would be we Moore Americans don't travel because of the conditions we were mentally put through on slave ships and trains if your put in an extreme condition for hundreds of years on or two things I can think of could happen you become extreme or you fear the extreme and I think we grew into fear of going outside of the place that enslaved us. Like if you kidnapped a person for so long then the people who did the kidnapping dressed you feed you and cleanse you then after awhile your brain starts to shift to protecting your enemies because they are all you become to know. It's the same as being kidnapped from one land to another. Now say this been going on for five hundred years I think that can put a mental chain like condition on us and our seeds. But I also believe that the mental chains in our head our braking apart and letting the truth about who we really are the will royal kings and queens mentality that of our ancestors first condition us with before slavery was ever put into existence are now being released mentally. So it may not seem like black people doesn't travel out of America but there is an uprising in that because our minds are opening up.
This is a great post. Thank for share
