Tariq - Why do you have Drug songs in your show?! Can you not find a more positive Intro song?
Your sending mixed and destructive messages.
Do better Brah.
You do have a point on that,but i still say Tariq's overall message was thorough. Black,african,"negroes,etc had better be aware of these savages.and they are all supremacists.i don't separate them anymore.the so called "decent ones" from the straight up white cracker supremacists.i have learned this just by my own observations in the past thirty plus years back when i was a teen in the 1980's.they all benefit from the violence,thievery and other fucked up dysfunctional crap their ancestors have done over the past centuries.so no, i can't and i won't give any of them a pass anymore.strictly business if i do have to deal with them, nothing personal.
I will admit that the concept of a "suspected white supremacy" database makes me nervous. While I understand the need for exposing racist cops and politicians who have committed specific actions I question whether this list could also be used to discredit and blackmail innocent people.
I am a white DJ with a number of Black clients, some of which are close friends and fans of this show. It's scary to think that a competitor or anyone with a grudge can pay $10 to falsely add my name to a list with the likes of David Duke and Darren Wilson. This would not only make me look bad, but would also make my clients look like fools. I hope that this database is well moderated and requires proof and a strict set of standards before a name is added to it.
I understand that the white media is rarely this understanding so I am in no position to ask you to be the bigger person here. That said it's up to you whether this database becomes a tool to protect and inform the community or a muckraker. If handled poorly it could easily become the latter.
@dc1969 Black family, don't even bother with the concern trolls. Tariq said he used the music as a hook for people who would not normally listen to a podcast. The music is the bait. The game reels them in.
I have no problem with trap music. Black people just need variety to balance it out.
On your points, I agree. I put all white people, with no exceptions, in the white extremist or white supremacist category.
Let them prove otherwise by turning on their own who target us. Having a racist uncle is not cute.
Agreed, Hors. And we also need to stay vigilant in recognizing that white supremacists come at us from all angles. I recently encountered a so-called white liberal wanting black liberals (since we are the Dem base) to capitulate, sympathize and bridge the divide between racist rethugs and Dems due to the violence that occurred on a DC baseball field. Don't fall for it. They're asking us to extend sympathy to a known white supremacist who does his damage in the halls of congress. Not today not any day.
Yeah sister, I seek out other Black people who are under the same code deliberately, either in school, working, self-employed and with an understanding of the need for Black economic independence. I can rock with Black people like that all day.
Other groups, I put at least in the suspected w.s. pile and deal with them strategically where it profits me personally. I have a plan to start with and end with them. No open-ended relations with non-Blacks. Too risky with no benefit to me realistically. Those people will sell you out and put you in danger because to them you are subhuman, lower than their pet dog.
