Man, as much as I disagree with Tariq about things sometimes, this is why I respect him. This man practices what he preaches and is serious about pooling resources to the black community. Respect!
I think he has the platform to raise money for politicians (like he always mentions we should do) and he should take advantage of that here in the States.
With respect to white people in giving AID to Africa, I hate seeing it so I am glad the sister has an orphanage going on.
At the risk of sounding anti-white, I don't want to see whites with our kids... AT ALL!!!
Many go there and molest kids. Some adopt them and still have their white supremacist views. Hell, I don't even like how many of the white women go there and take pictures of kids post them all over social media as if to say "look at my pet N*ggers!"
Many of them are on some messiah complex. White people are so contradictory. They deprive an entire continent, spread AIDS then send a bunch of these volunteers and missionaries to feed them a hot lunch or two and a bowl of soup. That way internationally it looks like white folks are helping the continent but blacks just can't get it together, when in reality they are the ones causing the conditions.
That's like shooting someone in the chest and giving them a band-aid and pretend you are a savior.
*Btw, Tariq should've kicked the white dude out of his lecture, we need to stop letting shit like this slide. Tbh, I wouldn't even have allowed white people in to begin with, but to each his own.
It took me too long to figure out that the shows Different Strokes and Webster from the 1980s were really propaganda. They were produced to make black kids see their salvation in a white savior, who had a big house and luxury. I won't lie. I watched those shows and wanted to live with a white family too, even though both my parents were married, had me in wedlock and provided for everything I needed and even some luxury items that were just treats. That mind control is a mother.
I don't have a problem objectively with the black kid having a white adoptive parent. I do have a problem with it happening in the context of white supremacy. For example, what is the root cause of why black kids are in the foster care system? If you eliminate the root cause through economic development, then you won't see as many black kids in the system. It is weird for them to degrade the black family system through white supremacy and then for white people to give themselves an award for adopting the black kids who come out of that system.
Black kids in Africa are often poor due to the legacy of colonialism. To see white people show up and congratulate themselves for barely addressing what their ancestors did is just ridiculous.
And people might wonder how the minority in S.A. dominates the majority. Those people forget that the South Africans had a lot of help from the USA, UK, Europe and the Israelis. That is why the P,M. of Israel did not go to Mandela's funeral. He would have been chased out of there. The CIA, from what I read, was the group that gave the S.A. police the coordinates for Mandela's hideout. The USA supported the apartheid system until the 1980s, until it got too embarrassing politically. S.A. were the white world's proxy government in Africa. The white south africans had a lot of financial and military support from white people elsewhere. Otherwise, they would have not listed long.
Black people need to get hipper to these systems that white people have been enforcing for a long time. None of this is new. Black people are just late as a group to what is really happening.
The Union of South Africa is the USA too, don't let an ocean and a funny accent fool you. It's the same neo nazi shyt.
Yeah, black people need to wake up quickly to the universal white supremacist code.
A few years ago, I was on a tech project in the USA.
There was a white south african woman working at the same site.
I learned she was one of the south africans who left when the ANC took power when I overheard her telling another white coworker that the blacks were actually better off under apartheid.
I always wonder why when white people say blacks were better off with slavery and apartheid, they never put other white people in that system. Since it is so good, white people should be included too right?
I live in Namibia, one country next door to SA.. Here the people suffer from the same systems as described in todays' show.
Sadly, the system will not change until the people began working to get their natural resources back, Uranium, Diamonds, Gold, etc...
I just listened to Tariq's UStream.
That was a really good show. Mandela was able to come out of prison and go straight to the presidency? That always seemed like a fairy tale to me. What he broke down was real talk. I have to salute that brother for going into the black area in another country to really see what was going down.
And for the clowns who complain about his wife being biracial or light skinned. She rolled in with him right into the hood.
So you have dark skinned black men and black women who are on that buck dancing and bed wenching, but we have to kick a ligt skin black or biracial to the curb even when she is a rider, willing to bring money and a weapon in our war? Smh. Black people need to pick up books on military history and get a dictionary to figure out the words allies and strategy. But I digress...Keep excluding real allies while traitors walk in our communities. That is why we are always isolated.
As far as that white guy goes, black people have been infiltrated from day zero. We always have spies among us who run back and report to their white daddies. Even if Tariq banned white people, some traitor could still bring in a hidden camera. That happens all the time. That is partly why slavery lasted so long. Not to blame the blacks but if you planned a rebellion some bed wench or buck dancer would run and tell the plantation owner. That is why I always recommend just doing projects with small groups where you can point to a saboteur really quickly.
And white people really only have one debate technique: deflect.
If you stay on topic, they really are left weaponless. I got into it with a suspected white supremacist the other day. She said "well what about Jews in Germany? They were discriminated against"
I told that woman point blank. "I don't want to talk about Jews in Germany. I want to talk about blacks in America" And I said it with authority. She backed down so fast and had no response for anything else I said.
Black people just need to learn how not to get distracted or intimidated. You really have nothing to lose. Running scared is only getting us killed faster.
Yea, we need to get off of that colorism b.s. If you claim to be pro-black and you are still indoctrinated by Willi Lynch syndrome, you are a walking contradiction!
There are the darkest blacks who are out cooning (y'all know who they are, I won't say any names.) And you have mulattos and "high yellas" like Jessie Williams who go hard for the black community.
You're right, a black coon can always be a spy/ agent, some blacks rather be the white man's lapdog than take a seat alongside him. But we might as well get read of the visible threat/ control what we can.
As far as debating is concerned, I agree 110%. Once people start deflecting you KNOW they realized they lost the argument. So many people don't realize when they've been deflected and end up losing argument they should've won.
That doesn't go only for race, that goes for ANY argument/ debate. I argue with pure logic, people change the subject and I say
"that's not the topic, please answer the question."
Eventually the person will become angry and ad hominem. Humans are an emotional species, not rational, stick to facts and you'll win. Which is why it is useless to argue with white supremacists... especially online. They will pull intellectual dishonesty, or if they are losing they might just say:
"Whatever dude, I don't wanna talk about this anymore/ I'm bored". Lol
Damn, my school teachers would be embarrassed!
Yeah man. I don't get into extended debates with dusty blacks. I don't get into extended debates with white supremacists. I give those fools about five minutes to make every single one of their points. If they are not talking about dismantling white supremacy after five minutes then I don't care.
White people love to bring up statistics as a means for silencing blacks. Tariq brought up an interesting technique. He said to just ask white supremacists, if blacks are so bad, then what are they going to do about it as a FINAL SOLUTION. That gets to the point real quick.
Man, I grew up in a black neighborhood. When I watched the news and read the papers, it was like my entire 'hood was a crimezone. But looking back and knowing more about geography and statistics, I realize that only certain parts had problems, specifically the parts with subsidized housing. The parts where black people owned homes were stable. All that to say, propaganda is a tool of war. When the educated blacks left those neighborhoods to live condos in the suburbs, white people scooped up the cheap real estate on single family homes with front and back yards!!! I know literally of a black generation that missed out on real estate wealth. I am talking about the kids who were in my neighborhood growing up!
And I agree with controlling what we can. I don't include any non-blacks in the planning stages of anything I do. I don't trust them to let the project be successful.
