It only it was just white supremacy.Smdh. Black people are getting murdered everyday all over the world now. It's like an epidemic. India, Italy...heck even in South Africa (still)...I moved to Japan 7 years ago thinking I was safe...come to find out cops murder black men in the back of police cars too. WTF? What do we do now, seriously? We don't want to work with each other and we just shrug it off when we get taken down like wild rabbits.
"We don't want to work with each other"
I think that is a myth. The problem has been more on the other side.
Black people with an agenda try to work with people who do not have them. You have black women with diplomas and jobs trying to play mothers to dusty adult men. You have brothers with futures trying to reform hoodrats. I don't even stay around people, black or otherwise, who do not match my agenda. All ideas are not equal.
As soon as I hear someone is a Trump voter, or a black feminist or a "what about black-on-black crime", mentally I put that person in the recycle bin. We need to get better at filtering out saboteurs.
We don't filter out enough people who have a counterproductive agenda. I work with about three black women right now. The four of us all have the agenda of making the money with the least amount of drama possible. Every time we talk, we get down to the money, the contracts, the meetings, the products. That is how black people should deal with other.
On the other hand, I have two black family members who each have a coon and a bed wench spirit. It made me sad but I had to cut that coon and that bed wench family member off to protect my monetary assets. I don't know when that white supremacist spirit will overtake them and they will sabotage me.
The thing is that black people are exactly where we should be given that we have been under systematic oppression ever since we were brought here on white European built, crewed and navigated slaves ships. If you get a daily beating, then of course your body and your mind will be broken after a certain period. Some parts of it will never heal. I have always been a technical person, in the sciences and the mathematics. Those are the only fields where there is across the board honesty because people have to be able to verify and recreate your assertions. As such, I know when someone is full of garbage and just talking to waste time.
"we just shrug it off when we get taken down like wild rabbits."
That I will agree with. More of us need to learn how to use small arms. And we need to take up economic arms. Black people accept this mistreatment because we need to work for white people and can't afford, literally, to offend them. I am looking at my social media feeds and all of my white "friends" are 100% quiet on the recent killings of unarmed black people. The rest of the black people on my feed don't say much either for fear of offending those same white people. So I agree that there should be a retaliation for each of these unjust killings.
Someone one my feed made a great point that black people in America never worry about terrorists in the middle east or whatever because we have to deal with a terrorist domestic police force.
Why am I worried about a guy in sandals and a turban when the real threat is wearing a badge and is authorized by the state?
I think you make some very good points. There are one or two points I don't totally 100 % agree with. The points that I don't totally agree with would be open for discussion and strategic planning to get a better understanding and resolution put in place. But for the most part our concerns are the same. We all have insights, gifts, perspectives, and talents to bring to the table to enlighten and strengthen one another. We have the technology in place finally to cut out the middleman aka agent who has always been able to tax and keep us apart by design. We are now free to communicate and support each other without a hater's interference. These are good times indeed if we act swiftly to take advantage of them. And learn to empower the right folks and disempower the right folks, by being conscious on who we trust and who we do business with. Good discussion. Let's keep building a wider base so the foundation is less destructible.
Much respect family. I don't agree 100% with anyone.
Even Tariq says stuff I question. So I am cool about learning over time.
But where I agree 100% with other people is that Black people need to get out of this state of second class citizenship and first class oppression. Once we get ourselves to a posture where we can defend ourselves economically and military from those who would penalize us for being melanin rich, then I can negotiate our other things. I don't even talk to black people who debate light skin versus dark skin, interracial dating, biracial people, Africans versus African-Americas versus AfroLatinos, etc. We get into a lot of side discussions while our people are getting curb stopped.
Awesome way to respond because it was in love and concern that I questioned even the small parts of your post in the first place. I would hope if you saw I had written something you questioned you would also give me the benefit of your perspective because it might lift me up. None of us know it all or can do it all alone. And even the parts that I questioned as i said would be open to further discussion because with clarification I might then agree 100 % with you. I love my mother and my siblings but I don't always agree 100 % with them.
Excellent followup post ! Thanks for the reply.
Very informative show, Tariq. No harm intended in my comment about your debate with the white supremacist being a waste of time toward you. It's just dudes like that are so stupid, they won't even comprehend your logic.
Here we go... Already; the scared negro men are hollering the "we just gotta pray, y'all" mantra, followed closely by the "if they just pull up their pants" coons.
I have all your hidden colors .. no I didn't buy it .. but I'm not financially stable nor have I ever been .. I'm 1 of the many who works day in and day out and still haven't made ends meet I've went through a lot to much to much to put in a text.. I've watched and made my kids watch every documentary. .. I know u r trying to build a foundation. but the knowledge to me is too powerful. they should have your work on the learning channel.. national geographic. nbc abc fox.. white people need to teach your work in schools.to everybody. you have delt a great blow to the establishment.. I do support black business. I shop and eat at black own shops every day. I'm sorry I couldn't have paid for the copies but after I showed my freinds. .they all have bought all of your merchandise so it wasn't a total lost for you
Pirating Hidden Colors makes as much sense as stealing The Bible.
You will pay lots of money to buy things from crackers that hate us won't cha?
Now, I am not trying to play the moral high ground, but I will always use my money to support anyone who is for us.
Any show that puts us in a good light will get my money. What happens if people pay for their racist movies (which is why that racist, feminist, ghost Busters reboot is coming out), but if we don't pay for positive black images why would they invest in them?
That's kinda harsh. The poster didn't have to divulge that information, at all. At least, he was honest and apologetic. You can't ask for any more than that from anybody.
I was not tearing him/her down, I was encouraging them to support those who put out positive images of us so that it may continue.
I don't see anything wrong with what I said.
I can see your point and Mr. Jon's. Yeah, we have to come down hard.
The only issue I have with the poster is that I bet he would never bring that sob story to the indians, the chinese, the arabs, the whites, the koreans, etc.
I would have more respect for someone who kept that on the hush, got himself back on his feet, THEN went out and bought the authentic copies of Hidden Colors from a legitimate seller.
That is how you balance your karma.
I mean, the podcasts are free.
The ustream is free.
How much more free do people want?
Literally hundreds of hours of free content available from Tariq and people are STILL jacking his works? That is straight garbage. We need better thinkers than that. I don't even hang out with people who bootleg. Most Black entrepreneurs I know are creators so they get why copies are dangerous. I work with photographers and filmographers.
In my area, we have Black people who run social events, parties etc.
I see something there that I never see when I go to white events.
I see some dusty Black who somehow made it out to the venue but tells the organizer he has no money for the event and asks for a hookup. Black people need to get out that.
I get the attempt to be honest on the surface of it. But if I had put out as much content as Tariq over a period of ten years, and people were still jacking my content, I would be heated.
Yeah, I know I am being harsh but this plantation begging is not working out for us. If I was in that situation, I would be quiet as a church mouse before trying to rationalize boosting another man's product. Black people are going bankrupt over that mindset.
Some of us try to run game on each other that we know would get us shot by the other races. Try to explain to Jackie Chan that you jacked Drunken Master because you were broke. He will kick you in the face. And I wouldn't be mad at him.
Your point is excellent ! I often wonder why folks of color want to complain and then turn around and support the very folks who are exploiting them. And then hesitate to support folks like Tariq and others who actually are helping more than taking from those who share a common experience battling to thrive living in America and world-wide.
I don't support whites and I'm definitely not racist. . I believe that infomatiom should be free .. do you want to see your race do better or r u trying to capitalize on our ignorance. . Im confused .. if hidden colors is the number one documentary .. best believe black people r buying the shit .. white folks don't know or care to know anything about hidden colors. . u should be happy a negus is gaining knowledge instead of down loading .. kill kill this. . sell dope that bs.. r yall really trying to help us or profit like the moors that sold us into slavery in the first ace..
Repeating a lie over and over again will never make that lie true.
"I believe that infomatiom should be free"
Cool. Then what you should do is put together your OWN documentary,
pay top notch video and audio engineers,
pay quality editors,
pay a DVD pressing firm to create the DVDs,
and then pay a distributor to send them out to whoever asks.
And the key to this is that you to send them out for FREE. You have to put out that knowledge for FREE.
No recouping your investment.
Keep doing that and you will stay broke. When you get a job, post the address so a bunch of us can roll up and get some FREE items.
"do you want to see your race do better or r u trying to capitalize on our ignorance."
Spoken like someone who has never owned a business. People who create products are trying, at the very least, to cover costs so they can continue to put out products. Any profits can fuel the next product cycle. How do you think corporations like Apple and Nike work? You try and run that plantation begging at your nearest Foot Locker and they will call security on you.
Tariq sold out his initial run of HC4 because he had to be conservative on how many DVD's. After it is a proven hit, he can get more DVDs pressed. But the point is, until he sells out inventory, he is going at risk.
Man, if you are going to be dusty, then keep that dustiness to yourself. Stop trying to sell a dirty hustle. You failed to address my point on how with all of the free content Tariq has put out, you feel the need to copy his product. You missed the point completely.
Put your own stuff out for free. Stop trying to force other people to operate at a loss because of your feelings.
I am all for brothers and sisters getting up on game.
But stop hustling BACKWARDS. DAMN. Go to Marvel and whine to them about why you needed to bootleg Ant Man. They'll send the FBI for you.
This is why Black people have to separate themselves from the dusty ones. I can kind of get that someone bootlegged. But I can't stand to listen to an explanation or defense for it.
I know people are going to say I am being mean but we can't keep making excuses.
There pure evio
This was definitely one of your most important radio shows. The gentlemen that spoke on black banks and the banking system touched on a topic for a future ongoing show. I think that's a step into the direction towards creating the economic base that would create the leverage needed to demand real freedom and just compensation. Russell Simmons was trying to tap into a larger economic base by offering his Rush card. I agree with you so much also on not needing or waiting on the white approval. Or trying to kiss ass to get in with folks who could care less about the struggle that their benefiting from. But with me it's not as much of a color thing as it is a wrong or right thing. Because we have to get to a point where we connect on common purposes with whoever supports our worthy causes. I notice color doesn't mean enough to some folks of color who will sell out just to fit in or selfishly get theirs. So it takes more than just having the same complection or not to bond with me. I'm not quick to trust you no matter what color you are. I also don't want to be a hater just because that's the in thing with the haters that are on top at the present moment. I don't want to be anything like the haters in the power positions abusing their temporary power. Like the late mc Breed said "ain't no future in your fronting". I think discussing and learning more about the banking system and how to use the knowledge to empower us is as important as understanding (or over standing) the non verbal communication piece you briefly touched on in a prior show. We have to get good at seeing through the deliberate distractions that are used by design to either prolong our plan, make us lose focus, or discourage us all together. Tariq you also mentioned a concern about putting money into a so call black owned bank. Your concern was it not being build upon integrity. Many often are quick to put money into our black church? We see that has not necessarily been the right answer. To get pass the fear we have to just put in what we could afford to lose and take a risk for the higher purpose. Up to now we have had an agent blocking us from making the one on one connection. Now it's up to us to make the connections. And then make them count. I'm open to connect with those of you (like Tariq) who demonstrate better than you conversate.
The very end of the show was disturbing to say the least. But there are many losing their lives and liberties daily that never even make it on the radar. I like the mention of not letting the right hand know what the left hand is doing. We will over come the madness ! Focus and determination are key.
Just for the record...... my comment was not aimed at you when I agreed with Mr. Jon with regard to being hesitant to support creators like Tariq and others in it to help us win it. But based on your reasoning I think we should all be able to get free Nike's, free cable, free cell phone service, free car rentals, walk into watch the NBA finals for free, get free food each month from our favorite fast food chains, and live in our homes for free among other free perks? If we don't have a real problem paying others who are exploiting us why are we suddenly unable to support those who need the support to be able to continue supporting us and making it easier for us in the first place? When we empower anyone we enable them the power to (continue to exploit us) or deliver better products and services to us. Not to mention actually show up in our communities and actually give back to them which we are not seeing from the large American corporations that we continue to suckerly empower without a second thought. I think we all can agree that we don't always have the money to pay for the music, dvd's, e-books, videos,and other things of value. And yes we should be able to still get those things if we're able to get them for free. But just be sure to make the attempt to also purchase and financially support the musicians, authors, producers, and creators whenever possible so they are empowered to keep creating better and less expensive products and services. You can best believe the creators of the products and services we are down loading, bootlegging, stealing, or getting for free (to include Tariq) had to pay money, blood, sweat, and frustration at some point creating what we don't value enough to think we should pay for. We can bet they still must pay higher taxes, accounting, legal fees, and other expenses than most, to continue to be able to maintain a business and feed and support their families. I think Tariq already addressed the issue with regard to blacks so call selling other blacks into slavery so I won't add to that. We're all we got, so we need to support one another whenever possible.
Straight up. When I deal with other Blacks, I deal with them at market rates. I don't ask or beg for discounts. If I do volume business, then we negotiate something. I never try to run a game on a Black that I would not first run on a white or a korean.
One of my home girls sells women's clothes. So I bought my family a bunch of her products for the holidays. She hooked me up because I bought a lot of shirts at once. That is how Black people should deal with each other.
It is one thing to cheat another Black out of a sale. It is another to try to justify it like it makes sense.
I get heated about this stuff especially because I have about sixty minutes worth of audio and video that I want to edit into a feature. The thought of my own people sabotaging my sales...well damn.
You know what's up ! We just need to be selective on who to include in the process. And realize some folks will take longer to shake the slave mentality or may never break the mental chains of bondage. But we must move on regardless. A person who makes less excuses and is willing to meet you half way is a person you won't have to carry or pull later. In fact, that person may one day be the very person Tariq or any other creator can call when they need a favor themselves. Some become haters without even knowing they are hating. But that doesn't make them less responsible for the hate. Let's keep building a wider base so the foundation is less destructible.
Why can't people see that whites are taking from the Germany playbook of "look at those people over there" in order to unify white people? If i'm white, and I want to stop whites from mass murder shootings and white on white crime, I need to create a false enemy to unify us. This strategy works!!
China doesn't really respect copyright laws at all. Do you know how many jobs they've created for their people copying business model after business model after business model after business model?!! We should do the same, fuck trying to reinvent everything. A beast can defend itself if you are using a lightweight compact pistol. It'll keep moving towards you. However, that shotgun creates a war on two fronts. That causes some real bleeding.
How can we bait more of these idiots to implicate themselves?
Don't you nigs see you're being manipulated!!
Fucking troll! What do you know about Powers of 10 exercise? I'll zoom in on your ass.
Using facebook live to gain public sympathy was very sneaky of you blacks. We'll just use facebook live to catch the millions of blacks robbing, stealing, killing. Damnatio memoriae!!!!!
If you would like to purchase Hidden Colors series but cant afford it put your money together and get the series. People go half on dinner, gas, drank, dank, even women. Lol. If you cant come up with $30 for something that can change your life you must not want the knowledge that bad. The brother is already selling the documentery at a discount in my opinion. Get your money up. $30 aint shit.
I think you left off the info on the best place to purchase the film documentaries so that the creator(Tariq) gets full compensation for the sale. I think that would be http://hiddencolorsfilm.com If that is not the best place or correct info perhaps you or Tariq can supply the correct info. I got my copies to peep the game and provide support. I suggest everyone get their copies too.
I saw the message boards. You motherfuckers seem to think we give a shit about you dating white woman. Well i'ma tell you a little something. As long we have asian woman, we don't give a shit what you nigs do.
Ya see, China don't like your kind neither. I seen the way China reported on that Minnesota Criminal. You blacks can't speak Chinese but i'll tell you they on the jew's media side. I guess you don't know nothin about Rupert Murdoch's billion dollar deals with China. All the elites talk about how to get ride of their "nigger problem" behind closed doors. So stop blaming the white man and focus on the jews.
Even if the cops arrest you for just a weekend, you may come out of that experience a different person. So, if you are imprisoning people on a massive scale, isn't that mental genocide? What's the percentage of people who have been locked up (even if for 2 days) for just violent; sexual crimes? Prison should only be used for violent and sexual crimes. Theft should be two strike. All other crimes should be counseling and community service? Why isn't the prison system that simple?
No one deserves to be stuff in cells with violent sex offending thieves. It's like the system wants you to become like that through osmosis. People always talk about success is about who you hang around. So wouldn't throwing basically a halfway decent person in a cell for a couple days influence them negatively?
"...for just non-violent, non-sexual crimes?" ****
I think it's important to discuss the paradigm that cops from other countries operate under compared to ours. In other countries, cops aren't so much in their cars looking out the windows like the community they are policing is full of demons. They know people in the community by name, not because they committed a crime before but because they are just local people trying to make it.
Those cops may even impart wisdom and what not until the local population with a few short conversations here and there. But like Neely Fuller said, "there's a reason they make cop cars so comfortable". Keep those poor people oppressed. This would mean the average person from outside of the U.S. couldn't understand the policing culture here. They imagine it's just like their policing culturing. Hmmm
Black Family, check out this article.
I was laughing at this article. Of course, Black people are still on our own. But if we get on code, plenty of people from the outside will partner with us on procuring what we need. When Black people have an economy, the Russians, Germans and Chinese will sell us damn near anything. ;-)
China says U.S. can't slam others on rights when it has racism problems at home
We can say one thing at least... The US is an international embarrassment. This not the first time this has happened either. Also, the Bahamas is issuing a travel warning to black males who want to visit the USA. Imagine that a white (1st world) nation on the danger list.
For a country that likes to be the trophy child of the world, America's reputation isn't looking to bad right now. We'd be vulnerable for an attack too!
I always say. White supremacy is VERY costly because it is very demanding.
Man, just keep in mind that the USA has been doing a lot of things in foreign countries. Those people have long memories.
Believe that they will sell Blacks in America anything we are willing to buy. But like that caller said on the ustream, we need to really study what it is we are buying. ;-) There is no need to go to the closet white supremacist.
Sho' you right.
China CCTV was out here in Baton Rouge interviewing us but I can't find the interviews online.
With the advent of technology, Black people no longer need to go through the NY Times, LA Times and Washington Post as liberal gatekeepers. I like that Tariq goes overseas to chop it up. I think Malcolm X said something about how he got his best welcomes from white college students in Europe. There are other races who are hungry for the realness. I am not trying to run from white supremacists, who are damn near everywhere. But sometimes you got to get out of that limit they put on you. Chill in the major capitals of the world. Use some street smarts. Odds are you will be okay.
I stay out of poor areas and when in Europe I never go anywhere near a soccer match or a bar that is displaying soccer matches.
Yeah man. Part of the code for me is knowing foreign languages and going to foreign countries. You show up to another country with some sense and some good energy, plenty of the locals will give you love. Black culture carries a lot of weight overseas. We can use that to our advantage. I went to a music festival recently in Europe and the locals were really impressed that a Black american came to their country and knew their language. I was getting 100% cooperation.
That way, you don't have to be held hostage by the information the white supremacist media pushes here in the USA.
I remember listening to a real time translation of a foreign ambassador who was disagreeing with the local white supremacist government on some war planning. The local white supremacist was straight up lying about what the foreign ambassador had said.
I work in technology so unless it is written in a technical manual, I don't give a damn what some white supremacist says. Unless it is weather or traffic related, I never read or follow the domestic news sources. I don't even get upset when they say crazy racist things.
Let Giuliani and Trump talk. Let them get all crazy on the microphone.
I prefer when they are vocal because then the bed wenches and the buck dancers have to deal with them face to face, like that black republican who got kicked out of a Trump rally. De Blasio has a Black wife but watch his son get targeted by the NYPD as soon as he is out of office.
"A former police officer named Michael Elsbury is being criminally investigated after Baton Rouge police allegedly discovered he had sent a series of text messages containing racial slurs.....Wishes a ferguson would happens to Baton Rouge" - September 6th, 2014
Baidu ---> http://www.inquisitr.com/1456166/cop-wishes-a-ferguson-on-baton-rouge-texts-that-he-hates-african-monkeys-and-loves-arresting-thugs-with-saggy-pants/
The Japanese NHK had a really fair and balanced round table discussion on Ferguson. It was almost clinical how they described WHY Black people were upset about what had happened. The other thing that I was struck by was that the Japanese did not frame it as an "angry black" issue as they mentioned how other races were marching with Black people against injustice. Even the graphics and pictures they used showed white protesters.
In other words, they did not describe Black protests as anti-white protests. White supremacists control the press here but an Asian press with almost no Black people and a historic grievance with the USA can print damn near anything.
BLM is dangerous because it leaves people hanging in mid-air. You see or hear, "Black Lives Matter!" then your fight or flight response is triggered. There's no equivalent 140-character twitter message about what to do. If it's top down funded, then i'm sure that's next. But it's like torture,
"Black Live Matter!" then what?
"Black Lives Matter!" okay then what?
"Black Lives Matter!" Alright, i hear you but this is getting annoying.
You know white supremacists stay planning and plotting. So you have to look at the end game and be very suspicious of anyone the mainstream press embraces.
Back in the 1990s, when a white supremacist wanted to deflect and shame a Black person who called out an injustice, the white supremacist would say something like:
What about Marion Barry?
What about Jesse Jackson?
What about Al Sharpton?
What about Farrakhan?
What about OJ?
Well Barry is dead.
Jackson was completely neutered when the Obama administration froze him out over two terms.
Sharpton is getting the boot at MSNBC eventually. He is too busy banging 20 years-olds etc.
Farrakhan is out of the press.Young black people have no idea who he is.
And OJ is too old to have any meaning to anyone born after 2000.
So my point is that, while I do not wish death on any Black person, the old guard that white supremacists used to deflect is dead or dying. Or at least powerless and neutered. Sharpton is not getting a White House invite no matter who wins in November.
The bottom line is that white supremacists need someone to shame the new generation of young Blacks. So they can say:
What about BLM?
What about Deray?
Deray is being groomed as the new go to Black guy for the white liberal and conservative media. He is the proxy that they will use as cover to harm Black children.
So whenever a white person brings it up, I say I am not a member of BLM. If they bring up Deray I will act confused and say Deray who? And then ask them I have no idea what the hell they are talking about. Then watch them stutter into a long explanation about Deray, etc. Black people have to learn to stay out of these discussions that have the sole purpose of draining our energy and wasting our time.
The bottom line is that the white supremacists never stay idle.
While the old civil rights guard is dying off, the white supremacists are grooming a new batch of buck dancers and bed wenches. Starting with Deray and BLM. When BLM starts training Black people on using handguns or in starting coops, then I will pay attention.
I discovered a new idea for hurting black children. Babysit them and show them "Don't hug me I'm scared" over and over again. The perfect crime ; )
You're probably a cop surfing the internet in your squad car. Do your job!!! Stop visting these pro-white websites and getting mentally pumped up!! Walk the streets, stop patrolling!! You're probably a top user on these white supremacists sites, you cops have the internet right next to you!!!! That means you're not in your right mind. The internet is not real life.
I have a feeling you're on a white supremacist website seconds before you get out of the car to harass someone. You're basically a Dylan Roof in uniform. You're life is exactly the same!!!! You're both spending way to much time on these white nationalist website while patrolling. THis is the cultural phenomenon of cops.!! BOOM SOLVED IT!!!
Black Family. Check out this article. Examples like this one is why I never worry about the buck dancer and the bed wench. All of them get a wake up call eventually. I hope Giuliani and Trump keep lighting up the bed wenches and the buck dancers. The only thing they understand is their white daddy. I remember this Black man caping hard for suspected white supremacists.
“While I thank God I have not endured bodily harm, I have, however, felt the pressure applied by the scales of justice when they are slanted,” said Scott. “I have felt the anger, the frustration, the sadness, and the humiliation that comes with the feeling that you are being targeted for being nothing more than yourself.”
Someone needs to hit Scott with the ""what about black on black crime?"
