a repost: Who Is Behind The Riots? Charlotte Police Says 70% Of Arrested Protesters Had Out Of State IDs…

“That is an ugly motherf******!!”

This is George Soros, a Hungarian-born Jewish billionaire magnate and “philanthropist”, prominent financial supporter of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. Why is this old, dried-out Caucasian dude supporting BLM? What’s his game?

Is our cause, our message being co-opted by “others” that do not have out best interests at heart? Or was that the plan all along? BLM is the same as the Civil Rights Movement, just with a different name.

Here’s a tidbit about the Civil Rights Movement that most people are not familiar with: The Jewish population were a huge supporter of the movement back in the sixties. Today, the mainstream media, Hollywood, most of your big-time corporations, and frankly the entire US government is run and/or heavily influenced by Jews. It benefits them to have us continuing to beg on our knees for non-existent ideals of “equality, unity, and diversity.”

a repost: ‘Emotional’ Judges Dish Out Harsher Sentences to Black Youth When LSU Team Loses, Study Says

This is some bullshit!


Article posted on Atlanta Blackstar (click link for original)

Football season is upon us, so it’s not uncommon to see the average crazed fan sporting the home team’s signature colors while screaming “TOUCHDOWN!” at the top of his lungs. On the flip side, that same raw emotion is often amplified when the team suffers an unexpected loss.

Many American football fans have emotional ties to their favorite teams — so much so that the “emotional shock” from an upset results in clouded judgement and biased decision-making. This was exactly the case for 207 Louisiana judges who presided over 8,228 juvenile cases from 1996 to 2012.

According to a recent study titled “Emotional Judges and Unlucky Juveniles,” judges in Louisiana handed out lengthier sentences to youths who appeared on trial the week following an LSU Tigers upset. The analysis, authored by LSU economics professor Ozkan Eran and fellow LSU professor Naci Mocan, also found that Black youths were disproportionately affected by the “football mania bias,” the Juvenile Justice Information Exchange reports.

“Importantly, the results are driven by judges who have received their bachelor’s degrees from the university with which the football team is affiliated (LSU Tigers),” the study states. “These results provide evidence for the impact of emotions in one domain on a behavior in a completely unrelated domain among a uniformly highly-educated group of individuals (judges), with decisions involving high stakes (sentence lengths). They also point to the existence of a subtle and previously-unnoticed capricious application of sentencing.”

The findings are disturbing, yet very telling of the implicit racial bias harbored by judges in the justice system. It’s also cause for concern, as appointed judicial officials are expected to interpret the law and hand down sentences that are free from bias or personal opinion.

“This study has wide-ranging implications on the juvenile justice system, especially giving hard evidence in support of why every system should adopt objective detention decision instruments at the front door, and risk and needs instruments at disposition hearings,” Steven Teske, chief juvenile court judge of the Clayton Judicial Circuit in Georgia, told the JJIE.

According to the report, incarceration and probation sentencing rates for juveniles who went to trial the week following an unexpected LSU loss were increased about 35 days per defendant. The type of offense the juveniles were accused of played no part in their harsh sentencing, JJIE reports.

This pattern was consistent over the 16-year span, but even longer sentences were handed down when the LSU Tigers lost an important game.

The JJIE noted that defendants had no way of avoiding the high-risk workweek following an LSU loss, as a computer is tasked with randomly setting the court schedule. Youths selected for trial that week were simply unlucky.

Yet, authors of the study were still unable to account for the impact of football fandom on the sentencing disparities between Black youth and white youth. For example, sentences increased 64 days for Black youth who appeared in court a week after a LSU upset. In contrast, the sentences of white youth only increased about eight days, according to the study.

“[Black defendants] bear much of the burden of judges’ wrath due to this emotional shock, which hints at a negative predisposition towards black defendants,” the study states.

Rachel Gassert, policy director at the Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights, said findings such as these are the main reasons the justice system needs an overhaul in “fair and objective processes,…sufficient checks and balances [and] training and robust funding for juvenile public defense.”

a repost: ‘Black Lives Matter’ is destined to fail unless it embraces Garveyism

Article published on theGrio.com (click link for original article)


Malcolm and Marcus would be ashamed of us.

All these years later, the children of the enslaved are still trying to wrestle their humanity out of the hands of the inhumane.  What a waste of precious energy.

So, I’ve got a question:  Have you had enough of trying to be an American, yet? We’re protesting, chanting and marching, all to what end?  To get something as basic as equal treatment under the law?

Ultimately, we still seek to convince an indifferent, complacent white majority we are more than three-fifths human, and above the level of dogs in the American pecking order.

As radical, revolutionary and threatening as the Black Lives Matter movement appears, it has a fundamental flaw.  It’s still an ‘ask’ to white people to validate our worth.

However aggressive the language, however disruptive the protests, black people already know that ‘Black Lives Matter.’  The statement is meant for white ears.

Researchers at the University of Toronto Scarborough conducted a study that found the human brain is considerably slow to register the activity of someone outside one’s own race. When witnessing simple actions of non-whites, researchers concluded the study’s white participants might as well have been watching a blank screen.

They don’t see us. They don’t recognize us.

We’ve got a self-esteem problem, and thus, we get the mechanics of power all wrong.  They’ve got us externally directed, when power is an internal thing.

When we say “Black Lives Matter,” we say it at an audience and are depending on the desired response.  It asserts that the power to make them matter is outside of us.  It is literally disempowering from the very utterance.

But hey, we have dependency issues.  How could we not?  Stockholm syndrome is real.

As a culture, we’ve been bred like dogs to depend on our masters.  The very language used in the terms “black” and “white” put us on correlated, interdependent terms.  The two terms define each other, but in the real world, it is quite different.  The fact is African people were the only people on earth for four-fifths of human existence.

Not only do we not need white people, it may well be the other way around.

Frankly, the only movement that didn’t rely on white opinion was the one that started it all.

Marcus Garvey’s ideas of self-reliance and self-determination are as applicable now as they’ve ever been.  Despite his flaws as a man, his grasp on common sense collective self-determination put the finish line on ground we can actually reach:  within our own power to manifest.

The first leaders of independent Africa were Garvey’s followers, including Jomo Kenyatta and Kwame Nkrumah.  These men understood that we suffer from institutional racism.  The only way to stop it is to win and control the institution, and a collection of institutions is a nation.

Upon close inspection, “Black Lives Matter” has been the subtext for almost every movement we created in America.  The Civil Rights movement was actually “Black Lives Matter.”  It said that they matter enough to have the rights to live as civilians who have equal protection under the law.

Even the Black Panthers were “Black Lives Matter;” matter enough to take up arms against the police if they try to take our lives.  Abolition was “Black Lives Matter;” matter enough to have the bonds of slavery cast off and live in freedom as all men should.  Get it?  Nothing has changed but the cast of characters.

It’s sad that a human lifetime is so short, because it can’t perceive when history repeats itself.  This is why knowing your history is so important.  It’s the only tool we have to measure the present and calculate the future.

“Black Lives Matter” is doomed, as all of its predecessors were, unless it evolves.

The mechanics are the same old game: placing the finish line behind white people’s change of mind.   They giveth, and they taketh away in this position.  They abolish Jim Crow while investing in prisons.  They allow a black president after removing the power of the office.  They allow integration but financially handicap us from buying homes in their communities.

That is not a sustainable plan for survival.

So should all 44 million of us move back to Africa?  Not necessarily in a physical sense, but our mindset has got to refocus and get realistic about long term freedom.  Freedom is responsibility.  An employee isn’t responsible for the company sinking or swimming, it’s the owner or CEO.

We’d actually have to know how to build our own houses, grow our own food, manufacture our own products, fortify our existing financial and educational institutions, create bonds with our brothers and sisters throughout the diaspora, and defend our own territory if we were going to be free.

These tasks sound daunting to some.  They’d rather continue arguing with white people about how evil their system of government is instead of learning the skills to make them obsolete.

Others see these challenges as a growth opportunity.  They know that nothing is out of the range of knowledge for African people.  From particle physics to weapons manufacturing, from global aviation to organic gardening, we can do all these things and more.  Screaming “Black Lives Matter” will solve nothing in our quest for self-reliance.  But go ahead.  Make another hashtag for the next black man to die senselessly at the hands of police.

Go the rally and lament about why black folks are so oppressed.  Maybe the question is not “What did we do to deserve oppression,” but rather “What haven’t we done to gain respect?”

The answer; love ourselves enough to put us first, the opinions of white America be damned!

a repost: Bayer agrees to buy Monsanto in $66 billion deal that could reshape agriculture

So the “aspirin” company is buying the “GMO” corporation?  The pharmaceutical company that creates poison to heal the body is joining forces with the agricultural corporation that is famous for creating “Franken” food (check this post out), artificial crops that are UNNATURAL to the body?

Isn’t this a conflict of interest?

Boy we are leaving the literal manifestation of HELL!

Wake up people!


Article posted on The Washington Post (click link for original article)

Seed and chemical giants Bayer and Monsanto said Wednesday that they will merge to become one of the world’s biggest agriculture giants, a $66 billion mega-deal that could reshape the future of farming and enhance their influence over the planet’s food supply.

Bayer, the German firm better known for pharmaceuticals such as Aleve and Alka-Seltzer, said it will spearhead the largest all-cash buyout in history in hopes of taking over St. Louis-based Monsanto, the world’s largest supplier of genetically modified seeds.

The merger marks one of the most prominent signs yet of the broadening acceptance of genetically modified foods, a bogeyman for environmental activists that has nevertheless redefined the capabilities for crops in the United States and worldwide.

The deal would also further strengthen the companies’ grips on vital seeds, pesticides and farm technologies, a concerning turn that critics said could raise prices, reduce choice and stifle innovations needed to feed a growing world.

“These companies make the case that they need to get bigger to help them respond to climate change, changing diets, growing populations . . . but so much of their research focuses on the big commodity crops that make the most money,” said Pat Mooney, executive director of the ETC Group, a Canada-based environmental advocacy group.

“They’re just so narrowly focused,” Mooney said, “that there’s a general feeling they can’t get us to the innovations we need.”

The deal is likely to draw intense scrutiny from antitrust regulators, who will assess whether the merger would unfairly lead to higher prices and fewer choices for farmers’ most important building blocks. The new company would preside over roughly one-quarter of the world’s seed and pesticide supplies.

Justice Department investigators have in recent years launched investigations into “possible anticompetitive practices” in the Monsanto-led U.S. seed industry, although a formal investigation was closed in 2012 without pursuing charges.

Regulatory crackdowns have dashed several high-profile mega-mergers this year, including a $160 billion deal between pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and Allergan.

The Bayer deal — the largest corporate mega-merger in a year full of them — is also likely to meet congressional resistance. Calling the merger “a threat to all Americans,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday urged regulators to block the deal and reopen an investigation into Monsanto’s massive influence over the seed and chemical markets.

Step into the shoes of a spy tasked with uncovering the source of a government data leak.

“These mergers boost the profits of huge corporations and leave Americans paying even higher prices,” Sanders said in a statement.

Genetically modified seeds dominate U.S. farming and are used in the growing of more than 90 percent of corn, cotton and soybean crops. But their use remains a major driver of environmental protests in Europe and has led to political action at home. In July, President Obama signed into law a bill requiring food companies to label products that include genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.

With its rapid development and fierce protection of genetically engineered seeds and pesticides, Monsanto has been made into an arch-villain for some environmental and consumer activists, who worry that the chemical underpinnings of “Frankenseeds” threaten human health and allow laboratories to play God.

The advanced seeds have also provided for a range of benefits, including stronger pest resistance, streamlined weed control and more efficient harvests around the world.

Years of research have revealed no proof that genetically engineered crops pose risks to human health. A National Academies of Sciences expert panel concluded in May that there was “no substantiated evidence” that the crops had endangered our bodies or hurt the globe.

“Asking whether GMOs are safe is like asking whether toys are safe,” said Rick Amasino, a University of Wisconsin professor of biochemistry who participated in the report. “Most people would recognize that as too broad a question. You can’t lump all chemicals into one bin.”

“Farmers don’t have to use these things. They have a choice,” Amasino added. “Industry is giving farmers something that, I suspect, farmers want.”

Dana Perls, a senior campaigner on food and technology with Friends of the Earth, said agricultural juggernauts such as Monsanto have crafted institutional blocks that prevent small farmers from freely choosing how to grow their crops.

“This further consolidation over our food system removes even more power from people to control their agriculture, and to choose what we can and can’t consume,” Perls said. The deal, she added, would “make it even more difficult to make sure that what comes onto the market is safe for people and the environment.”

The deal would be the largest German takeover yet of an American firm. Known in the United States largely for its health-care products, Bayer would emerge from the deal further focused on its business in agriculture chemicals, crop supplies, and compounds that kill bugs and weeds.

Bayer first made a $62 billion offer for Monsanto in May and has increased its bid over months of negotiations. The all-cash deal is valued at about $128 a share and is larger than the previous record, the $60 billion merger between brewers Anheuser-Busch and InBev in 2008.

Sales in 2015 at Bayer, which has 117,000 employees, totaled roughly $51 billion, about 30 percent of which came from its crop division. Sales at Monsanto, which employs 20,000 and also develops such products as the weed-killing herbicide Roundup, totaled $15 billion last year.

The companies portrayed the merger as a landmark agreement that would help them invest more in researching and developing chemicals for the global harvesting of vegetables, corn and other crops. The deal, they added, would also help them save $1.5 billion through cost-cutting, added purchasing power and other “synergies” within three years.

“The whole agricultural industry around the world is basically going through a transformation. It’s the last big industry in the world to be digitized,” said Robb Fraley, Monsanto’s chief technology officer. “This allows us to make more investments, have more capabilities and build better products for farmers, that they can use to grow crops with higher yields . . . and farm better, farm smarter.”

Both companies said that they would seek antitrust approval in 30 global jurisdictions, possibly including emerging markets for seeds and pesticides such as China, India and Brazil. Bayer has committed to paying a $2 billion antitrust breakup fee if the deal falls apart.

Asked whether they were worried about regulatory challenges from a new U.S. administration, Monsanto chief executive Hugh Grant said on a call Wednesday that the companies were “much more focused on the innovation horizon than the political horizon.”

David Balto, a former Federal Trade Commission policy director who works with farmers and consumer groups, said there was a strong chance that the Justice Department regulators would crack down on the deal.

“Antitrust cops are learning they’re cops,” Balto said. The companies “have chosen to do a deal in the year of merging dangerously. They are in for a tough time.”

A growing Bayer-Monsanto giant could also block out smaller competitors, said Matthew Crisp, the chief executive of Benson Hill Biosystems, an agricultural technology firm.

“Large companies’ model of innovation . . . has served as a barrier to entry for smaller companies interested in developing more choice for farmers,” Crisp said.

Monsanto’s St. Louis headquarters will become the companies’ commercial headquarters for North America, but it’s unclear how the mega-deal might affect jobs there. Grant said on a call Wednesday that the merger would help the city become a “global center” for the seed business, adding, “This is good news for St. Louis.”

Shares of Bayer and Monsanto climbed less than 1 percent on Wednesday, a reflection of investors’ timidity over a potential antitrust block. Jim Nelson, a portfolio manager at Euro Pacific Asset Management, said that “some Bayer shareholders want the company to focus on the pharmaceutical business, and not go off into Monsanto’s signature GMO-seed business, which they view as a risk.”

Economy & Business Alerts

Breaking news about economic and business issues.

The $100 billion global market for seeds and pesticides has grown increasingly competitive, as farmers duel for crop and market share on a planet whose population is expected to grow more than 30 percent by 2050, to 9.7 billion.

Tensions have escalated further because global crop prices have fallen for three years in a row, squeezing profits and forcing the seed and agriculture industries to cut costs and trim their workforces. Monsanto said last year that it would lay off 12 percent of its employees, or 2,600 jobs.

Rival seed and chemical giants, including Dow Chemical, DuPont and Syngenta, have launched their own mega-deals in recent months as part of an accelerating race to consolidation.

Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute, said that rapid tightening could weaken the inventiveness of an industry focused on advancing the world’s food supply.

“It is vitally important to have competing, head-to-head, research-and-development programs in this market,” Moss said. But with this deal, “we would go from six competitors in agricultural biotechnology down to four. That would have significantly harmful effects on the pace of innovation.”

“Ownership is a one-sided relationship!”



From the Melanated Man:

I reposted an article recently on how man’s sense of superiority is destroying the planet as we speak. There was a statement made concerning man’s destructive need to own and conquer everything and everyone. I wanted to elaborate more on that topic.

FYI, when I mention the word man, I intentionally leave off the hue-; the type of being that I’m referring to that contains this trait to own and conquer has no color, is MELANIN-RECESSIVE, at the bottom of the chart.  HUE-MANS, MELANATED individuals  who have a true connection to not only the planet but the universe do not have traits, unless they choose to inherit them, to assimilate into a Eurocentric frame of mind.

Ownership (from Google)-the act, state, or right of possessing something.

The idea of ownership fits nicely in the ARTIFICIAL, MATERIALISTIC WESTERN PHILOSOPHY that rules the current day! Anything that does not have its own life source besides the energy and value we give it (i.e. a business, a house, a car) is fair game. It is the perfect foundation for the  CAPITALISTIC, PARASITIC WESTERN SOCIETY. Since the majority of us  MELANATED folk worship and hold true this wonderful philosophy, we can only mesh with folk with the same mindset, ignoring the minority of us who choose to retain their AFRICAN-CENTERED perspective.

Hence, unity amongst us is futile.

You know, when those things that have LIFE get added into this philosophy, the problem becomes harrowing and devastating.

Because HUE-MANS are not meant to be slaves, unless they want to be.

And no ANIMAL really wants to be a pet, entertainment for the masses, or served for DINNER!

Also, the earth does NOT want to be OWNED only to serve the benefit of PARASITES!

Speaking of the earth, if you have an AFRICAN-CENTERED perspective, there no possible way you can own land! At best you are occupying space. And during your time of occupying space,a physical and metaphysical relationship is developed between you and Mother Earth. And a relationship is all about RESPECT.

You treat her right, she will do the same to you.

But when you own that land, that space, it gives you the ability to do whatever you want to do with it. With an EUROCENTRIC perspective, the earth only serves the interest of those with that mindset. They rape and steal from Mother Earth until there is no more for her to give.

“Give me your oil to fuel my industry!”

“Give me your trees so I can make DEAD PAPER for people to worship!”

The earth is a living and breathing organism! It has a LIFE of it’s own! And she’s fighting back as we speak!

Did it give you permission to own her? 

It is not possible for man to have a connection with the earth if he has no MELANIN. Without that connection, there is NO relationship. Hence, the creation of the ownership ideology.

Ownership is a one-sided relationship. Remember that.


My MELANATED family, we need to dump this useless concoction, and ultimately this  EUROCENTRIC mindset and get back in touch with what’s REAL.

Respect the earth! Don’t abuse her to DEATH!

Honor the animals with reverence! Refrain from eating DEAD BLOOD!

Love your fellow HUE-MANS! We’re not meant to be slaves to another man’s whim, or VICE VERSA!

I know I may be sounding like a broken record, but it’s TRUTH.

IMO, it’s the only TRUTH that matters at the end of the day.


As my old pastor would say, “Be encouraged!”



Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanated Man



a repost: Deep African Thought

Posted on ThyBlackMan.com (click link for original post)



“The word ‘Ubuntu’ comes from one of the Bantu dialects of Africa. It is a traditional African philosophy that gives an understanding of us as human beings in relation with the rest of the world. According to Ubuntu, there exists a common link between us all and it is through this tie, through our interaction with our fellow human beings, that we discover our own human qualities. The Zulus would say, “Umuntu Ngumuntu Ngabantu”, which means that a person is a person through other persons. We affirm our humanity when we acknowledge that of others.” Ubuntu philosophy as an African philosophy for peace  http://www.africafiles.org/article.asp?ID=20359

Last week we discussed the need to rethink Africa and our relationship to the continent and our ancient forbearers. We desperately need to do this because we have been indoctrinated and programmed to see Africa as backward, uncivilized, bereft of culture other than drumming and dancing and as offering nothing noteworthy to humanity. Last week I suggested these notions propagated by our Arab and European enemies were/are designed to assuage any guilt they felt about their invasions, rape, theft, capture, kidnapping and colonization of African people and as a way to justify their pillage, plunder and rapine of Africa.  I say any guilt because they have never repented of their sins of imperialism and plunder over the years. They’ve only shifted their modus operandi to accommodate and use their advanced material weaponry and psychological warfare so their oppression is less obvious because it is so thorough and all pervasive.

We need to realize most of what these foreigners, invaders and aliens said/say about Africa is not true. During their invasions they discovered countless ruins of great civilizations, clear cut evidence of advanced cultures and vast treasures that they suppressed, stole, appropriated to whites or extraterrestrials.

The ruling class who disseminate their “history“, archeology, anthropology and “education” are even at odds with first hand eye witness accounts by Arabs and Europeans who chronicled the magnificence of Africa and its people! Their denial of history and African accomplishments speaks volumes about themselves and their deep seated inadequacies. Western “education” reflects the consciousness and values of the ruling class. In this case the megalomaniacal capitalists who financed the industrial and technological “revolutions” that needed brute labor and dim intellect to keep the machines humming, to develop and maintain the wasteful, pollution causing factories, businesses and armies that fueled the rise and expansion of the Western economy.

Schools and curricula were developed to forge common identities for the emerging European nation states out of diverse ethnic, tribal and racial groups and prepare them to plunder the world, to work in the factories, mills, mines and large farms.  The downside of this ongoing pattern is the ecocide, total disrespect and desecration of nature the West demonstrates with each passing minute, day, month, year.

Their fantasies about Europe being the epicenter of all human progress gives whites a false sense of superiority and non-Europeans suffering under their imperialistic hegemony suffer from a debilitating sense of inferiority, emptiness, defeat and purposelessness. Part of their brainwashing technique is to always show us as defeated, subjugated and happily acquiescing to their domination.

But we are not defeated, we’ve only been brainwashed to think we are. We can use Black History Month to jump start and reenergize ourselves to begin a three hundred sixty five day search for our true selves, our rich history, heritage and innate potential.  We can use Black History Month to decolonize our minds, to deprogram ourselves and erase the lies and distortions we have been feed and forced to internalize about Africa, Africans and ourselves. We can use Black History Month to discover how our ancestors fought back and defeated their enemies.

As I said last week we are a deep and creative people. The depths of our creativity are not just in the monuments our ancestors left but in the values and consciousness that created and produced them. At the root of those accomplishments was a cosmology, a philosophy and value system which is antithetical to that of the Europeans, what we have been brainwashed and conditioned to internalize. African technology, architecture, building, science and social organization were all based upon deep metaphysical and humanitarian values. These values are found throughout the continent in every indigenous traditional culture and group.

At the core of these values was/is the notion we are a spiritual people linked and connected to a vast spiritual universe most of which is undetectable to the five senses. All Africans believe in an invisible universal energy/intelligence or force that permeates all creation. Europeans called this idea pan-theism god in everything. Europeans don’t believe or comprehend this because they are essentially materialists, they only accept what they can experience via the senses; although their astrophysicists and physicists now say the universe is composed of pure energy that vibrates a differing frequencies from the undetectable ultra-ethereal to the densest levels we call physical matter.

Our ancestors articulated this thousands of years ago. Read George G.M. James great work Stolen Legacy  to get a glimpse of how a handful of Greek “philosophers” plagiarized African cosmology and philosophy. James points out that to the rank and file Greeks these plagiarized African ideas were totally foreign and incomprehensible.

The metaphysical ideas of Kemet are thousands of years old and were probably originated by Africans who originated outside the NileValley deep in the interior of Africa. We are discovering more about the values that produced the societies in South Africa and we should  explore and learn more about them. Discerning and understanding these values and the consciousness of the people gives us deeper insight into their culture their social organization and how they interacted with each other, others and their immediate and distant environments.

In South Africa there is an ancient word Ubuntu that to me is the essence of African, holism, deep thought and philosophy. “The word Ubuntu originates from one of the Bantu dialects of Africa, and is pronounced as uu-Boon-too. It is a traditional African philosophy that offers us an understanding of ourselves in relation with the world. According to Ubuntu, there exists a common bond between us all and it is through this bond, through our interaction with our fellow human beings, that we discover our own human qualities. Or as the Zulus would say, ‘Umuntu Ngumuntu Ngabantu’, which means that a person is a person through other persons. We affirm our humanity when we acknowledge that of others. The South African Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu describes Ubuntu as:

‘It is the essence of being human. It speaks of the fact that my humanity is caught up and is inextricably bound up in yours. I am human because I belong. It speaks about wholeness, it speaks about compassion. A person with Ubuntu is welcoming, hospitable, warm and generous, willing to share. Such people are open and available to others, willing to be vulnerable, affirming of others, do not feel threatened that others are able and good, for they have a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that they belong in a greater whole. They know that they are diminished when others are humiliated, diminished when others are oppressed, diminished when others are treated as if they were less than who they are. The quality of Ubuntu gives people resilience, enabling them to survive and emerge still human despite all efforts to dehumanize them.’” https://motivationinspirationandlife.wordpress.com/2012/06/02/ubuntu-i-am-what-i-am-because-of-who-we-all-are/

Ubuntu is an ancient African concept as is Ma’at (Divine Order, Truth, Balance, Harmony, Justice, Righteousness and Reciprocity). Both were the root and underpinning of African culture, social, ethical and relational values. Both were the philosophical mortar that held the societies together, that allowed them to define themselves within a communal framework and live in a collective, harmonious manner. This philosophy laid the foundation of a genuine attempt to live together in harmony and peace.

Were the societies perfect? Of course not. They were the first to do it so they learned by trial error, intuition and experience. Our African ancestors put into place family, peer and age social controls to reinforce values of Ubuntu and Ma’at. For thousands of years we worked to live together in harmony because our values were collective and humane not exploitative and rapacious.

What if we rediscovered, relearned and revitalized Ubuntu and Ma’at then adapted them to modern living as a way of transcending this hostile environment? What if we looked for an alternative to the crass materialism, decadence and emptiness of the West and embraced our own African values and philosophies?  How would the quality of our lives be different if we based our thinking, emotions, actions and relationships on Ubuntu and Ma’at? This is not as far fetched as you might think. We do have agency in this, we can choose the values we live by.

The Western way is unsustainable, it is built on selfishness, greed, theft, war, exploitation and wanton violence. That model cannot last forever, its inhumane values are destroying the planet as we speak! We see the concomitant moral rot and devastation all around us now. Things are not getting better. We have to search for and find an alternative to European madness and psychopathy.

Social reform only goes so far in a morally depraved culture like this. We need a total transformation, a turnaround in values and I am suggesting we look to our African ancestral roots for the solutions to these issues. Ubuntu is such a solution.  Africans are a deep and creative people.  As Desmond Tutu said, “The quality of Ubuntu gives people resilience, enabling them to survive and emerge still human despite all efforts to dehumanize them.”

We need to seriously rethink Africa, embrace our powerful legacy of deep thought, humane values, live and restructure our relationships in accordance to those values. Failure to do so will result in sure spiritual, psychological and physical death.

Food for Thought: Should I even bother fighting “Racism and Discrimination?”




From the Melanated Man:

I had an interesting experience this past weekend while out of town in Kansas City accompanying my wife on a recruiting seminar. I gave me a chance to spend some quality time with my two younger brothers, Craig and Arnold, who also happen to live there with their parents.

(Kansas City is not a bad town to tour and visit if you haven’t had the chance. It has a laid back feel to it, which is what I like. I wouldn’t mind living there if it wasn’t too far from my family back in Georgia and Alabama and wasn’t situated in the middle of the Midwest where there are not that many of US to be found en masse. Although overall I enjoyed my trip, there were a couple of occasions where I simply felt out of place and basically a foreigner.)

Which brings me back to my story…

My brothers and I decided to go out for a drink after taking in a movie. So we go to a Buffalo Wild Wings in the Zona Rosa shopping plaza in the northern part of Kansas City. We all approach the bar which where there were three seats available. There were a couple of glasses of beers that were half-drunken set in front them as well. Initially I did not sit down at first because I was not sure if the individuals that were sitting there were going to return The second oldest Craig insisted that we sit.

I’m not that hip to bar rules considering I don’t go out for drinks often if at all, but apparently I’ve been told once you leave the bar that is an indication that you’re done. Well the bartender never got the memo.We waited about FIVE minutes before she decided to acknowledge us, even though she was oddly staring at us behind the bar from the time we arrived. The bartender, who is of course Caucasian/European,  NEVER cleaned off the drinks or took our drink orders.

Yeahhhh, there are people sitting in those chairs,” she said. “And I have people sitting there, and there,” as she proceeded to point to two other chairs at the bar that were empty for the same amount of time we had arrived. From my and Craig’s perspective, she  had the look and demeanor that she really  had to think about the blatant LIE she was telling us.

Slightly disgusted, we decided to leave. And we headed over to another establishment in the same shopping plaza Bar Louie. We walk in and I had this feeling come over me like I was walking into a Woolworth’s in the middle of Mississippi Pre-Civil Rights Era. Although the place was loud and people we were dancing and carrying on, it seemed for a brief moment everyone there (about 98% of the patrons were Caucasians/Europeans) were covertly staring at the three of us, like we didn’t belong there.

Is there REALLY a threat of three educated BLACK-MELANATED individuals hanging out in public together?

Soooo…we sit down at an empty table and this TIME the waiter acknowledges us right away and appeared to be genuinely nice. For a moment, I felt a slight calm. The feeling I had previously when we walked in receded a little bit. Maybe I am overreacting, I thought.  The experience we had Buffalo Wild Wings had shook me a little so of course I was still apprehensive. He, of the Caucasian flavor as well, promptly took our drink orders with no issues. Everything seemed to be going OK.

And then…he asked us if he could hold a credit card from us. He told us that he had issues of people walking out on the bill in the past and that’s why he asked. Reluctantly Craig gave the waiter his credit card. We both looked at each other as if we had the same thought in mind:

“Did we just get DISCRIMINATED TWICE on the same night?”

Was the waiter telling the truth regarding having patrons walking out on the bill? If so, were the those patrons BLACK? Did he assume since we were BLACK that their was a good chance it would happen again? Is it standard policy for their restaurant to hold a credit card prior to serving their patrons?

That feeling I had when walked in the bar returned TENFOLD.And unfortunately, we stayed and had our drinks. At this point we didn’t want to let ignorance ruin our rare brother moment and we had our drink. Nevertheless it did put a damper on our time together as me and Craig discussed back and forth about the events that transpired starting with the Buffalo Wild Wings situation. The youngest of us Arnold didn’t really have much to say throughout both ordeals, as if he was simply going along with the flow.

I wonder what his thoughts were, what kind of example we set for him.

The next morning me and the wifey went by their house and had breakfast with Craig and his parents. Arnold had to go to work that morning so we never got to hear his views on the night before. According to the parents, the consensus was that we should have reported the incident to management and to be more mindful of the sacrifices that were made so we can enjoy the same establishments and benefits as our “white” counterparts without any foolishness occurring. My wife (who loves to speak her mind when she feels a hint of being snubbed) agreed with them for the most part.

Craig and I pretty much said the same thing: we didn’t have the energy to fight or complain about being possibly discriminated against when ultimately it’s not OUR establishment.

And of course there was an obvious back and forth for the next 45 minutes to an hour. We were on two opposite ends of the spectrum.


Should we even bother fighting “discrimination and racism?”


My personal opinion…

That night I didn’t have the energy. Honestly, even if I did, I wouldn’t want to. When it boils down to it, this SYSTEM (THIS MATRIX!) was not made for my benefit, or those who look like me.

Nevermind the obvious POISON that they sell at Buffalo Wild Wings and Bar Louie with not only the  alcohol, but the  DEATH FOOD that does you no good in the first place. Not to mention the countless number of flat screens they have that completely DUMB DOWN YOUR BRAIN by televising CORPORATE-RULED SPORTS to put you to sleep.

Hey if we really had our priorities in check, we wouldn’t be frequenting establishments that kill us in many ways than one.But not only do we want to be accepted in these establishments, we try to recreate them ourselves. The  only difference is the owners and patrons have BLACK FACES…

…but still don’t know a GODDAMN thing about themselves.

“Racism and Discrimination” is a multi-faceted creation by the powers-that-be, the elites, Massa to pull you into their SICK GAME. It is a very complex and tricky one; people are still being played to THIS DAY.


(FYI, RACE DOES NOT EXIST! MELANIN EXISTS! That’s how those in power really view the many different peoples of the planet, based on MELANIN CONTENT! We need to start applying that same tactic as well in ALL FACETS of OUR lives.)

By creating *LABELS (a future post that is LONG overdue)  for people, it gives those in power the ability to easily identify who they wish to DISCRIMINATE against within their MATRIX. And once that occurs, of course the 99% will began to complain regarding the DISCRIMINATION.

The more they complain and beg for equal rights, to be accepted and to assimilate within the MATRIX, the more obvious it is to those in power that they don’t know anything about themselves.

“They’re sheep, easy pickings for us!”

If you actually knew the MATRIX you so desperately want to integrate into, you would probably prefer to kill yourself instead…and I hate to say that, but that’s how destructive it is.

That’s my viewpoint on the situation.


Really think about what’s going on. AS BLACK-MELANATED PEOPLE we want to be treated fairly, we want to be considered in the conversation. But are we really begging for acceptance? Why do we have to keep fighting the same battles over and over and over AGAIN?

Maybe it’s time to tell Massa,” FUCK YOU! We’re going to do our OWN thing!”

Whenever we decide to learn about OURSELVES first, then maybe someday that will occur.

Until then…I’ll keep doing what I’m doing to make that happen!



Peace and Love to my melanated family,

*Future Post


P.S. To my brother Arnold (lol!), I hope you learned something from our experience(s) the other night. I’m sure you did. Feel free to hit me up and we can talk about it, mane!



Are you a slave to someone else, or YOURSELF?





From the Melanated Man:

A friend of mine once told me that the body, your body, my body, is ultimately a slave. I knew exactly what he was talking about but didn’t understand the gravity and depth of the idea until recently. For those of you that believe that the body is a temple as the Good Book suggests, or a vehicle/tool for the soul, you can probably level with me a bit on what I’m about to say.

We give our bodies the food we want to give it.

We exercise and train our bodies the way we see fit.

We place our bodies through many, many dangers and risks that I can’t list all of them at the moment…so we can enjoy our lives and have fun, to alleviate the feelings of grief and sadness in times of despair, or for simple tasks such as commuting to work or school on a daily basis.

Ultimately, we are in control of our bodies. We choose consciously and unconsciously how we use it, what we do with our lives, based off our inner desires. And alot of the times we willingly choose to give our bodies, our time, to ENTITIES that don’t add any value to our cause and existence.

Maybe it’s time to reevaluate our goals and aspirations.  I digress, but anyway…

No one can make you do what you don’t want to do…everybody should know that by now.

And when it comes to the plight of the BLACK-MELANATED individual, a dangerous game is being played on our psyche concerning this topic.

On one hand, you have statements like “you can’t blame the oppressed for their own suffering”, “the oppressor likes to shift the blame to the oppressed”,  or when it concerns indigenous peoples in all parts of the earth “the colonized.” It’s as if we don’t have control of our situation, our bodies, OUR LIVES.

Sounds like the platform for Democrats.

On the other hand, there are statements being made such as “you must take responsibility for your actions”, or my personal favorite “you must pull yourself up by your bootstraps.”  

Sounds like the platform for Republicans.  Now I understand the GAME of politics.


Considering that the-powers-that-be, the elites, Massa and their agents are the ones who are making these statements, it doesn’t matter which side you choose. At the end of the day it only benefits THEIR agenda.


Uhh ohh…so what’s the real deal? Is it possible we could be responsible for our own suffering?

Maybe. We have to do a double-take on our MY-STORY, our mystery I mean. Because unfortunately it’s still a mystery to us.


But as mentioned so many times before, if you don’t have KNOWLEDGE OF SELF, you’re EASY PICKINGS. As my mom used to tell me, “if you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything!”

As I would say, “if you’re not a slave to yourself, you’re a slave to someone else!”

Think about it.


Peace and Love to my melanated family,

The Melanated Man
