That Latina chick got one of her so called friends to argue with me on twitter. Come to find out the guy is an obvious bigot towards black people. And she's friends with this guy. HMMMMM
It's "us" and "we" when it's convenient, but "your people" when we're getting killed and arrested out in the streets. You touched on brothers getting in shape and having some warriors out here to protect our communties recently. Would like to hear you speak more on brothers being prepared for shit hitting the fan.
Off topic, Dick Gregory said something that resonnated with me recently and I'll paraphrase. If it's only black folks killing black folks (that black on black bs the SWS like to regurgitate) then who's filling up the prisons in Idaho and these other mostly white states? White people made the weapons and you mean to tell me they aren't violent?
Great show Tariq.
Before listening to the podcast I'll answer the question:
I think you should stay off 'hood rat's
' it's the pot calling the kettle black.
I used to think Tariq was really reaching with his assertion that white extremists used the word Muslim as code for Black.
But sure enough, that old man insinuated that Black protester was a member of ISIS!
A while back I read how prison administrators were "concerned" about incarcerated Black Muslim converts being radicalized etc. Of course this is just a smokescreen to further oppress black men. But once again, this is why I respect the brother Tariq. He stays on these white extremists.
Not to derail this conversation but white supremacy really is a mental sickness.
I just remembered the Casey Anthony acquittal and the Joran Van Der Sloot investigation. In both cases, those people were left alone. Van Der Sloot literally went and killed someone else. Somehow, he is not demonized and threatened. Incredible.
Man, I couldn't agree with Tariq any more than I do this episode!!!
I am sure to NEVER denounce Trump on social media. As if everyone woke up one day and decided racism was bad... -_-
When groups say "Trump is racist" they're saying "help, he's going to be bad news for US!"
Fuck these fake allies... Then when Trump doesn't become prez and we have a (slightly) less vocal white supremacist at the helm, other groups will go back to worrying about themselves.
Blacks need to STOP being used!!!
And yes, no one loves MLK like white supremacists... Their ideology is "MLK wants you to bend over and just take it!"
And as much as I respect Tariq, I don't understand why he continue to entertain these idiots. It's borderline stopping to their level.
If a Kindergartner told me 1 + 1 = 7 and refused to be educated I'd say "that's nice kiddo" and just walk away.
Cosign on all points. I haven't commented on any of the political posts on my social media feed. Black people are losing their minds over the prospect of a Trump presidency. But damn near none of these Blacks are getting gun permits, purchasing firearms or pooling their money. They pray, dance and then vote.
If Hillary loses, you will see the real racist liberals and progressives blame the Blacks for not getting out and voting. Black people are going to really get that wakeup call if Trump carries it.
With respect to Tariq and his debates...
The thing is, people aren't exactly like machines that you program one time. Sometimes it takes repeated listening for a message to click.That is why he repeats a lot on his mack lessons. You might need to hear that message 20 times. And there is a universal theme so of course it repeats.
Usually I tune out when Tariq has a caller but if your profession is public speaking, then you have to speak to the public. And that includes a whole lot of idiots. Good luck finding 1% of an audience with a functional brain. I used to work tech support and I feel for people who have to talk to random people for a living.
And I think it helps for people to see that you can confront white racism and still win. When I was a kid my father would never let a white person talk slick to him. I used to think he was going overboard but now I realize that he was making sure that white racists thought twice. Once they get emboldened, it is a wrap for us, even more so than it would be if we had just made a stand.
The thing is Black people in America got Civil Rights because they made a stand with those rifles and cocktails.
"But damn near none of these Blacks are getting gun permits, purchasing firearms or pooling their money. They pray, dance and then vote."
After 400+ years, I would think the term "slow-learner" won't even cut it anymore.
"The thing is, people aren't exactly like machines that you program one time. Sometimes it takes repeated listening for a message to click.That is why he repeats a lot on his mack lessons. You might need to hear that message 20 times. And there is a universal theme so of course it repeats."
Fair enough. I think 90% of people do not want to learn anything. They want someone to confirm their pre-existing thoughts.
"And I think it helps for people to see that you can confront white racism and still win. When I was a kid my father would never let a white person talk slick to him.

Respect to your pops. That's why, even though it was violence, I liked that right now, a video is going viral of a black girl giving a Mike Tyson-like punch to a white girl who said the N-word to her.
That really sends a statement. Imagine if that white girl called the black girl the N-word and nothing happened. The white girl would try to push the line next time she has an encounter... Possibly assail a black person.
I haven't seen that Black girl knocking out the white girl for calling her the n-word. I know white people want a universal hood pass on using that word because they all listen to Jay-Z. But I will never accept a white man just calling me nigger. White people refuse that Black people should have exclusive rights to just that one word. I never get the urge to say kike, wop, chink or spic. So how diseased in the brain does a white person have to be to want to say nigger?
In 2014, an old Black, retired corrections officer killed one of those hispanics, you know the ones who are minorities when it is convenient. Well that hispanic had roughed up the old Black man and called him a nigger. That Black man was probably around during the Civil Rights movement. He chased that hispanic down, pulled out his piece and murked him, right there in the subway.
The DA didn't even file charges. Good luck stacking a jury and getting a conviction in NYC after an old Black man was called nigger.
I don't wish death on anyone, especially over a word. But I don't regret what happened to that hispanic because this is what happens when Black people get tired of being pushed around. Imagine growing up under Jim Crow and segregation and some hispanic calls you nigger because he has a Black friend.
So yeah, I hope more videos surface showing non-blacks getting that two piece over saying the n-word. That needs to happen a lot more. Back in the day, a white had to at least EARN a hood piece by doing some grimy things. And even then they wouldn't call a black nigger. But whites these days use their mixtape collection as political cover.
"The thing is Black people in America got Civil Rights because they made a stand with those rifles and cocktails."
Agreed! You gotta do deep research to find that out. W.S. will tell you. Bend over and take all of their abuse and all your problems will be solved! Then attribute it to Martin Luther King.
Man, I had almost all white teachers coming up. But I am just recently realizing how brainwashed my classmates were on the teachings of MLK. White people loved telling us about Civil Disobedience and the Mountaintop Speech. They loved showing those pictures of Blacks at the lunch counter just taking abuse. But they never bring up that for all of his preaching on peaceful solutions, MLK still got murdered by a white supremacist. All that conciliatory language and he still was killed.
And Tariq was right about the shaming tactic of invoking MLK. It is like these white people know that Black youth are programmed to go limp whenever MLK is mentioned. GTFOH.
Let me further elaborate on my comment: firstly, It's quite unfair to label women in such a derogatory way, men can be hood rats too, everyone starts somewhere it's where you end that's important, so I understNd the meaning of game and whatnot, but come on. You do a good job at inspiring and leadership, but we can't label each other in a negative light. We have so much more to be concerned with. Sometime people don't do better cause they don't know better. I would think you would encourage blk relationships, you can't save everybody, I can charge you to the game without the labels.
"everyone starts somewhere it's where you end that's important, "
You do know that that's literally the point he made right? That hoodrat is a mentality not a location.
Also, we do need more exclusivity in the black community. Every group has acceptable & unacceptable behavior except for blacks. That's a problem.
Someone took time with the elevated 'male hood rat ' took him under his wing, taught him game. People need to work together with one another.
Damn. A hit dog just hollered.
I guess hoodrats and star wars are sacrosanct in the black community.
You can't say anything negative about either one.
Yeah, I found the suburban breed of hoodrat the most disgusting. The people in the city sometimes have no choice about a gutter environment. The ones in the suburbs just go overboard to keep it real.
And black people do need social and economic exclusivity.
I've said it before but white people who escape hillbilly country will kick you dead in the chest if you suggest they go back and associate with those people in any form.
Bill Clinton grew up poor in Arkansas but ask his hometown the last time he saw any of them. You don't even hear about Roger Clinton, his own brother. Other groups get money. They self-separate with like minded peers. Somehow Black people get conned and shamed into accepting every disgusting hoodrat and grimy goon. Later for all that. Let them kick rocks. The Game is not for everyone. Tariq talked about that when he described the genesis of Hidden Colors and the story of the 300.
How cliché, I'm not a feminist or hoodrat as you say. I own apt buildings son yes a female. My handle name says it all. You and your like minded males keep thinking this labeling is cute, but when your old and done you may end up by yourself.
While some Native Americans are kicking black people out of their communities, other Native Americans are getting legal enforcement of treaties. I feel for the injustices that Natives have suffered but they don't ride for us. And they still get restitution from the government.
Look up that child custody case in California, where 1.5% Native ancestry was sufficient for a family to get legal rights over that little girl.
Look up that recent land case in Omaha, Nebraska where Natives got land treaties enforced.
This is the power of getting specific rights for black people.
All that people of color and minority nonsense is for the birds.
Demand specific rights for black people. Somehow the state knows how to profile black people to punish them but does not know how to profile black people when it comes to giving out restitution.
How does that work?
How can the state identify you when it wants to arrest you but can't see you when it needs to cut a check?
I am so happy to see that black people are waking up to this garbage.
