I been refreshing the page waiting for this
She should be a Coon of the year award nominee!
Flex was on fire tonight. If white people knew that black people would even remotely use technology to organize, they would have never allowed broadband into black neighborhoods. White supremacists really have no precedent for handling organized online black campaigns. We can exchange game and tactics. This is what they fear. That publisher with the cake story and the one in Texas that said slaves were foreign workers would have had no opposition even ten years ago. The white supremacists are working on a strategy right now to oppose that strength that black people can organize online.
And instead of a white supremacist lie being accepted as gospel for years, that lie can be debunked immediately. Stacey Dash is one of those black marionettes that the white supremacists pull out of the closet only to attack black people. Then they put the marionette back in the closet. You rarely ever see a black asked about economic policy or foreign relations with China. Just sports and "black-on-black" crime. I am glad she went off script a bit. The ancestors got ahold her and she started walking off the plantation.
I think she is on her 3rd or 4th white husband so that bed wenching is strong.
And finally, I hate when people compare what black people have as though black people make up 50% of the population. We make up a weak, marginalized 10% of the US population. You can't compare the few black institutions that are nominally problack with the overwhelming white supremacy of Hollywood. A lot of black shows actually had white producers, writers and directors. Only the onscreen talent was black. And I find that white people are the most hostile during Black History Month, so February is really hell on black people. You pay the same cost everywhere and deal with more hostility. The white supremacists gave the black athlete his wake up call. The black actors are getting theirs. Crusty old Stallone gets nominated. White screen writers when on behalf of a story about the legendary NWA. It is just so obvious. Wake up sleepers.
WHITE PRIVILEGE II - MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS FEAT. JAMILA WOODS
I know you bring up technology all the time, I am proud of how black people have been using technology and social platforms to fight back.
Did you hear about the white girls who wore ni**ger on their shirts and one of them lost their scholarships after black Twitter dragged their asses?
My only problem with regards to the George Washington book is that change only happens if the company actually CARES about thr black peoples' voices.
In many cases the companies don't care about our complaints and nothing happens... This is thr case with Facebook and their racist double standards!
Man, with respect to technology, that is my messiah. I wish that enough black people would use it for more than gossip and booty shots on social media.
As an aside, Tariq could use a competent IT person.
On last weeks ustream he told the story of how his former editor almost made off with a rough edit of Hidden Colors 4. I cringed hearing that. Backups are a must, especially with cheap hard drives and cheap online storage. But I digress.
I remember the exact moment when I first started working and it hit me like a lightning bolt. Instead of begging some white man for the answer, look it up in a search engine. Or use the search engine to find the book that has my answer. Since that time, I will only ask a white man a question that takes less than a minute to answer.
The other thing about technology is that the white man will publish damn near all the specs on most of the common technology out there, specifically computers. If you speak English, French or German, you can learn everything you need to rebuild society.
White people are so confident that blacks won't do anything with all that technical knowledge in circulation that they can explain all types of stuff in the open. I am amazed at it sometimes.
My background is more computer oriented but I learn as much about electronics as possible so I can be useful if they turn the lights out on us.
As for companies, bad press is bad press. That is how jewish people and homosexuals got play. Those groups don't let up. They will brand you an anti-Semite or homophobe until you are chased out of your job or industry. Black people let up too often.
What happened to that dumb publisher is that the story kept growing. The heat was on so they had to get off the radar.
Companies never care about our complaints. They do care about marketing and money. Someone in that marketing department said pull the plug. They didn't even trot out the black illustrator. It was such a waste.
If I was the interviewer
Me: So Ms.Dash, you do know BET is owned by Viacom, which is the same white owned corporation that owns MTV and VH1 don't you?
Stacy: So...your point?
Me: If BET was so racist or segregationist as you say, why would would a WHITE media corporation buy it and put it under their umbrella?
Me: Also, the image awards is ran by the NAACP, which is just a black MANAGED organization that takes a substantial amount of WHITE FUNDING to keep its doors open. So if that award was so racist why would whites continue to fund the NAACP?
Me: you are right about one thing though...whites don't have a MONTH for history...They have the whole damn year!!! Have you ever heard of public schools?
Me: Wow, all these years and you're still a clueless cunt...Ok we're done here.
They don't really allow those kind of back people on t.v. though, just bed-wenches, sell outs, and W.S.
If you're making a good point they'll cut your mic off QUICK!!!!#
(19:40 mark) Voting w/o money or resources to BUY politicians ultimately gives the "illusion of inclusion" and they KNOW this.
"This nigga's been grunting for the last 30 years!!!"
LMAO!!!!!! 40 actually. But anywho...
On The Oscars: I'm actually surprised that Flex went in on this. It has nothing to do with economics, it is an ARBITRARY ass award!
Hell, you can even argue that beauty contests are important because they reinforce racial beauty... Oscar's are completely on the whim of some stupid, biased, committee. Even DiCaprio should get an Oscar and they keep playing him.
There are some things I feel are important, and others that I feel are just begging for white approval. If they play us, so what, create a black Oscars. Just like there was a Negro League due to our exclusion and white people started LUSTING after black players.
I am so happy to see someone as intelligent as Flex has the same mindset as I do regarding voting.
It's fuckin' pointless!
The difference between me and 99% of the population is that I can see propaganda.
They'll be athletes, actors, singers, entertainers, etc. peer pressuring us to vote.
"Yo, make sure you get out to da booth this November dawg!"
Anything the media is forcing on you usually has a nefarious intention behind it.
And our society has a way of shaming people who abstain from voting.
Listen, if voting REALLY gave the citizens that much power, those in power would NEVER in a million years allow us to vote their power away. Don't be ridiculous.
I recommend REGISTERING to vote. Registering allows us to serve on juries, so if a jury (is composed fairly, that is) we have the ability to vote against white supremacists.
What is the point of bootlegging Hidden Colors? I mean really. The purpose is to promote group economics, so why buy it to do just the opposite?
I seriously do not understand.
That's like how The Bible is the most stolen book... go figure!
I am glad that the Oscar issue came up. You see, black entertainers, such as athletes, musicians and actors are held on a pedestal relative to the 99% of the black population that has to do a nine to five or do a hustle. Because we have flashy and rich black celebrities, that means the USA is a just nation, right? Riiiiight.
The Oscars were a way of letting black actors know that they are and were never needed. Tariq said something a while back about how he loves when white supremacists speak plainly and clearly to black people to let them know their place in this system. All of this time black actors have not learned to pool their money together. They are still in a beggar's position. I thought Viola Davis' speech last year was embarrassing. All these black actors do is buck dance and beg. I don't care about any of them getting an Oscar. Black people should pool their money and fund their own shows and movies. How many times do they have to learn this? They compete for the scraps at Hollywood's table. Over a hundred years of begging and they have nothing to show for them. Keep begging another hundred years. And some of these old crusty white actors are clapping back, unfiltered, telling these blacks to wait and maybe they didn't deserve it. I love it.
Shawn Wayans was on The Breakfast Club recently and he was asked about the Oscars. Say what you want about Shawn's Wayans movies, he finances his own stuff and makes a good return. Check out the returns on Shawn Wayans' films at boxofficemojo.
That man is doing alright. I am not the target audience for the Wayans and Perry movies but I have deep respect for these brothers and their ability to produce their own works. Each one found a lane and worked it. And I read somewhere that Shawn Wayans bounced from the Scary Movies franchise when he stopped getting a producer credit and then he started the Haunted House franchise where is now a producer. Seriously check out the returns on the movies where Shawn Wayans is a producer and an actor. I don't count another man's money but I respect a real hustler. Black people can make it when we want to make it, ignoring that respectability politics nonsense.
As for voting, yeah, I show up to the voting booth, but I don't vote for the establishment candidates. I agree with Tariq that black people should get out of the voting and focus on the power and the money. Or at least pool some money together to buy some of these white candidates like the other groups do.
Not to be on some fake negro outrage, but I never liked the term "coon". Just that general revulsion of any white labels, especially the slurs. But we can't escape them anyway. 99% of us have white derived names but I digress.
In the future, I will refer to blacks like Stacy Dash as sock puppets for white supremacy. Funny how Fox will use that weird white Clark guy as the savior of black kids and then the next week bring out its black sock puppet to shame black symbols that are mostly owned by white people. BET is black owned. Ebony is controlled by JP Morgan. Oprah's OWN is fifty percent owned by Discovery Networks and rides on its channels. I got into an argument with a black sock puppet about Oprah's OWN. I had to explain to her that Oprah can't do jack without Discovery Network's approval. I don't know if the ownership structure has changed since it launched but Discovery Networks fronted Oprah a lot of that money to start her network. Black people do not own 100% of anything in Hollywood on a large scale.
You can't make this up. Black people are really in the matrix.
I agree with you about the word Coon. I don't like it either. I certainly don't like to give white supremacists the satisfaction of a black person degrading another black person with a racial slur even though I disagree with them.
Tariq had mentioned that if he won the 1.5 billion dollar lottery, he would no longer do lectures, documentaries, the show and kick back and enjoy the money. That's cool, but if I won that money, I would SERIOUSLY help out the black community. One of the first things I would do is open a chain of convenience stores in black areas and hire black people. Thus, forcing the Koreans store owners to close shop in our neighborhoods.
And you are so right about the importance of black people using technology to organize. The Internet has allowed us to develop a sort of *REAL* BET.
The case about the white cop who raped all of those black women is one example. I literally did not even hear about that case until last month. I was really surprised that I didn't hear about it because I've always been up to speed on news stories. Several people that I know who live in different parts of the country didn't hear about it either. I learned about it on another brother's YouTube channel. Of course had it been a black police officer raping a lot of white women, it would have been covered 24/7
" Tariq had mentioned that if he won the 1.5 billion dollar lottery, he would no longer do lectures, documentaries, the show and kick back and enjoy the money. "
And now the brother contradicted himself... In past shows he states there's no money in this. Now it's "I'm only doing this for the money"
Has it occurred to you that he was only joking about something highly unlikely? As John Oliver pointed out the odds of winning the lottery are akin to scoring a Superbowl winning touchdown while being attacked by a shark.
BTW If that ever happens I'm throwing Tariq to the shark.
Admittedly, I was picking on a petty point.
I don't think he'd really stop talking about black issues.
If anything he'd most likely build a black infrastructure and hire other blacks... I would think at least.
cali the black folks have the power to shut the Koreans and others down now,we are too lazy to work together.
plus you got to vote else you get Ferguson and flint, too many of us more worried bout jay-z than shit that really affects us.
satchseven I agree that blacks have the power now to do that. But if I had that kind of money, I would take the initiative and hopefully other blacks who have the resources and money would follow suit.
And yes, voting can help. However, you have to hold candidates accountable. They either have to serve the community or get out of Dodge. A good number of those elected officials in Ferguson and flint had been reelected.
enjoyed this very much!
Great show, but Angela Bassett actually lost the Oscar in '94 to Holly Hunter from The Piano. Angela still should have won, though.
I know blacks are against the LGBT movement but I'm proud of it. I like to travel to Thailand and de asia. Just because I'm white doesn't mean I'm into ladyboys. These days the politicians try to trap powerful foreigners with lady boys. That won't work anymore because the LGBT international community is very strong.
What I love about the Asians is that they know that there's nothing special about the blacks. They don't even recognize the negroids.
Nice try at deflecting the melanin energy in this post.
At the federal, state and local level, it has been a majority of white men at damn near 100% who have passed every single law against LGBT. The face of every anti-LGBT law in the USA has been a white man. Go to any large black church and you will see plenty of gays and lesbians.
The black community has no power, politically, economically or militarily, to deny any group rights. That is the white supremacists job. This is provable by just looking at the case law over the past 200 years.
White people pass anti-LGBT whatever legislation. And then blame the black community for homophobia. This is what happened in California with Prop 22. White Mormons were behind financing Prop 22. But black clergy got the blame when it passed.
Beware of white man who speaks with forked tongue.
Ice cube was on a uk chat show named graham Norton show. He responded to a question about boycotting the oscars. He replied that there is no need to boycott something he was never invited to anyway and that he makes movies for his fans and if get accolades and recognition for them it is nice but not that important and that's how other actors should do.
