For Your Own Safety, Keep Male-Identified Women Out Of Your Inner Circle

NUANCES ASIDE, THE “MAINSTREAM” OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE INVOLVES MALE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN WHICH RESULTS IN INJURIES, MAIMINGS AND DEATHS

There are nuances to the issue of domestic violence. I’ve seen them during my work experiences both as a former prosecutor and defense attorney. An ugly truth about many of these situations is that I’ve watched many women use allegations of domestic violence (as well as sexual abuse of the children) as “cards” to play during divorce and child support proceedings.

I’ve also watched many genuinely battered and abused women (some of whom were my clients) play games with the Orders of Protection that they get. They call the police to enforce the Order, and have the abusive man arrested, when they’re angry with the abusive man for a reason other than the abuse (cheating, and so on). And then they invite the abusive man back into their home (in violation of the protective order) when they’re feeling lovey-dovey again.

Seeing all of this at work has made me leery of trying to help such women. Truth be told, they have hardened my heart about this issue.

However, none of this negates the reality that the “mainstream” of domestic violence consists of male violence against women which results in injuries, maimings, and fatalities. The vast majority of seriously injured, maimed, and murdered domestic violence victims are women who were killed by men. Also, most physically mature males are physically much stronger than most physically mature females. So, with rare exceptions, there’s no real physical danger to a man in any weaponless confrontation with the vast majority of women. The man is physically stronger and can get away from most women. Women with the kick-buttocks physical abilities of Buffy the Vampire Slayer are rare, indeed.

Whatever nuances exist don’t erase the above realities. Because of our historical experiences of suffering racist court system atrocities such as the Scottsboro case, lynchings and other horrors, the African-American collective functions as a support network for accused Black male criminals. But we take this knee-jerk support of Black male criminals several extra steps when it comes to Black males accused of harming Black women and girls.

THERE’S A WIDESPREAD SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE AMONG AFRICAN-AMERICANS THAT SUPPORTS DOMESTICALLY VIOLENT BLACK MEN

When people speak of domestic violence, they usually focus on the people directly involved in domestic violence as perpetrators and victims. However, there’s a permissive social atmosphere that helps makes domestic violence within the context of an intimate relationship such a common event. Things don’t happen in a vacuum; and people tend to avoid behaviors that will cause them to be shunned. Unfortunately, among African-Americans, there’s no social penalty to pay for being a man who beats or rapes women. Nor is there any social penalty among African-Americans for being a Black male pedophile who preys on underage girls.

JUST LIKE THE ARAB WOMEN WHO SUPPORT THE SO-CALLED “HONOR KILLINGS” OF THEIR OWN DAUGHTERS, MOST AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMEN ARE DANGEROUSLY MALE-IDENTIFIED

It’s not enough for a woman to avoid domestically violent men. It’s best to also avoid allowing dangerously male-identified women into your inner circle. Unfortunately, most African-American women are dangerously male-identified. Too many of us are the same as the Arab, Pakistani, and Afghan women who support so-called “honor killings.” We support violence against other Black women and girls—as long as these attacks are committed by Black men (and not White men).

If I hadn’t already become jaded by working in the court system, I probably would have been amazed by the widespread support given to individuals such as R. Kelly and Chris Brown from the masses of African-Americans. Including, and especially, support from African-American women. I’ve chosen these two individuals as examples because there was corroborating photographic and video evidence in their cases that took the situation outside the realm of being characterized as solely “he said, she said.” In evaluating R. Kelly’s situation, there’s also his observed, long-term behavior pattern with underage girls. [So many of us are so quick to ignore and forget what he did to Aaliyah when she was underage. Starting with her parents, who let all of that go instead of having him arrested.]

I will note that many cases—of all kinds—are decided based on verbal testimony only. Not all crimes leave a physical trail. There are some pedophiles who restrict their sexual assaults to fondling children over their clothes. I’ve represented more than a few pedophiles. From conversations with them, it was clear to me that some of them knew that: First, many people (particularly other African-Americans) will dismiss verbal testimony as “he said, she said.” Second, most African-Americans will try to play defense attorney when they hear accusations of child molestation. And third, many African-American women believe that it is sufficient to break up with a man who propositions or molests their child, as opposed to also calling the police on him.

STOP TRYING TO APPLY COURT RULES TO THE OUTER WORLD

Rules about hearsay evidence and due process only apply to court proceedings. It’s foolish for people to apply the rules of court proceedings to public safety issues. It’s downright crazy for women to apply court rules to matters involving their own safety. It’s crazy to be more worried about being “fair” to a potentially dangerous person than your own safety. Court proceedings have little in common with real life or the outer world. The most important difference is that there’s armed security in court buildings. There is no armed security automatically at hand when you’re walking around in the real world. You’re on your own. The police generally arrive after you’ve been harmed. It would be good to remember that.

A MALE-IDENTIFIED WOMAN WILL GIVE ADVICE THAT CAN GET YOU (OR ANY OTHER WOMAN YOU CARE ABOUT) KILLED

A male-identified woman (even one you consider a friend or relative) is not going to react appropriately if you’re in physical danger from a violent boyfriend or husband. She also won’t react appropriately if your boyfriend of husband rapes or beats you. She’ll ask what you did “to cause him to react that way.” She’ll advise you to “hang on to your man.” She’ll advise you to “fight for and not give up on” your relationship. If you had the common sense to leave the violent man, she’ll advise you to return to him.

In short, a male-identified woman friend might get you killed—especially if you listen to her advice at a vulnerable moment.

TO IDENTIFY A DANGEROUSLY MALE-IDENTIFIED WOMAN—LOOK AT HOW THEY RESPONDED TO THE CRIMINAL CASES INVOLVING CHRIS BROWN AND R. KELLY

I won’t spend much time addressing what’s wrong with these statements. I figure that any woman who’s part of this audience already knows what’s wrong with the mentality behind the following sorts of reactions to these two cases.

About Chris Brown, did they say any of the following types of statements (this is not meant to be an exhaustive list, I’m sure you can list some more male predator-enabling statements you’ve heard from Black women):

(1) I don’t think he “really meant” to do what he did.

(2) We don’t know what he went through with Rihanna.

(3) What if Rihanna threw the first punch.

(4) I can’t judge Chris Brown.

(5) We don’t know what really happened. We can’t just go on photos.

(6) We don’t have all the evidence. [Khadija: This always tickles me. Nobody except God has “all the evidence.” The rest of us mortals go on whatever evidence we have, and the application of common sense. Which is scarce when people are looking to defend their accused-Black-male sacred cows.]

(7) I believe in redemption. [Khadija: Fake-religious African-Americans love this word, “redemption.” How can there be “redemption” when there’s NO sincere acknowledgment of wrongdoing? Not to mention that any redemption is between the predator and God. Redemption has nothing to do with common sense or public safety issues. “Redeemed” or not, it’s not safe to hang around predators.]

(8) I believe in second chances. [If a domestically violent man kills you, you don’t get a second chance.]

About R. Kelly, did they say any of the following types of statements (again, this is not meant to be an exhaustive list, I’m sure you can list some more male predator-enabling statements you’ve heard from Black women):

(1) We don’t know what really happened. We can’t just go on videos. Remember Forrest Gump.

(2) We don’t have all the evidence.

(3) I can’t judge R. Kelly.

(4) That girl (in the sex tape video) knew what she was doing; she’s (sexually) experienced. [This statement is shocking. Even for people lacking in human decency like most modern African-Americans. It’s been my observation that many (if not most) of the underage girls who are sexually active with grown men have a personal history of suffering prior molestation. Being sexually molested is how so many of these girls became sexually “experienced” in the first place. So, because a previous pervert was successful in molesting a girl, that makes it okay for a new pervert to molest the same girl? That’s an amazingly evil point of view.]

(5) I believe in redemption.

(6) I believe in second chances. [When your child’s innocence is stolen by a pedophile, there is no second chance to get it back.]

LET THESE SORTS OF STATEMENTS SERVE AS A WARNING TO YOU

Let these sorts of statements serve as a warning to you. Some things are matters of common sense, public safety, and are beyond all reasonable debate. Non-attorneys trying to apply (what they believe are) courtroom evidentiary rules to public safety issues get women killed and children harmed. If you value your own life, you’ll err on the side of common sense and preserving your own safety. And not worry about trying to apply courtroom rules to the outer world (such as hearsay and due process). After years of defense work, let me give you my overall impression of the percentage of guilty people who are in the court system. I’ll put it this way: From what I’ve seen, where there’s smoke, there’s usually fire.

Instead of considering their own safety, so many African-American women are brainwashed into trying to think like defense lawyers regarding any and all accused Black males. This is a gamble. One that can cost you your life.

If you have female acquaintances who knowingly socialize with, befriend, date and make excuses for men who are accused of being domestically violent, it’s best to purify your social life of these women. Such women will make excuses for a man who beats YOU into the ground.

If you have female acquaintances who knowingly socialize with, befriend, date and make excuses for men who are accused of being sexual predators, it’s best to cleanse your social life of these women. Such women will bring these predators around YOUR children. And they will make excuses for the predators if (actually, when) they proposition or molest your child. These women will also counsel you against calling the police on any sexual predator who attacks your child, especially their boyfriend-nephew-uncle-cousin. These women believe the sexual molestation of children should somehow be handled “in house.” “Handled in house” means ignored. While the sexual predator roams free and goes unpunished.

Keeping male-identified women out of your inner circle can be a matter of life and death. For you and your children.

    A very important message, Khadija, and very well said. I get an almost instantaneous headache when I hear these predator-enabling statements from BW. That’s why I limit my conversations about some of these issues/cases with certain people. I think a major area where the AA collective has gone wrong is the fact that we no longer have a strong policing arm. The social sanction against doing certain things has eroded to the point that predators are given license and the innocent are on their own. Our lives have so little value to others, in part because they see that we value ourselves so little as to allow a KNOWN predator to roam free, devouring at will. We have things so backwards, It’s like we wake up daily and willfully drink our poison as if it were a vitamin.

  2. I know I’m starting this conversation by going somewhat off-topic, but all of the insane indoctrination of AA women that we’ve been discussing is connected.

    A reader sent this news story to me today, and I’m almost speechless in response. Check out the photo that accompanies the story. http://www.chicagodefender.com/article-7709-deborah-movement-to-tackle-city-violence.html

    Note the presence of the themes we’ve been discussing: AA women trying to fight men’s battles, and these AA women don’t want the National Guard or any other serious attempts at security (the ongoing protection of BM criminals). After all, the National Guard just might shoot and kill their precious Black-male-criminal sacred cows.

    The mind boggles…

    Here’s the news story from a local Black newspaper (the Chicago Defender):

    “Deborah movement to tackle city violence
    by Rhonda Gillespie

    Dozens of women fed up with the violence and carnage within the Black community have taken to the streets and taken on a biblical name, as a show of strength and solidarity. They marched April 28 near The Black Star Project offices, a community action organization, near 35th Street and King Drive.

    The I Am Deborah Movement includes women who want to model the strength and tenacity of the biblical prophetess Deborah mentioned in the Book of Judges. Deborah was said to wage and win battles for God that men would not fight, according to a written statement the group released before the march.

    “She had orders from God to take care of her people. So we took that and we’re running with it,” Africa Porter-Ollarvia told the Defender. She is one of the leaders of the movement and a longtime volunteer at the Black Star Project.

    “These are our children dying,” said Porter-Ollarvia, who explained that finger-pointing as to who or what is the reason for the violence was not the group’s goal. “We just want to take full responsibility and accountability; galvanize, organize and strategize to save our people’s lives. … As women, we’re taking this into our hands because, you know, we’re the ones that are carrying all these babies.”

    Another of the movement’s leaders, Nefra Burlock, explained that one of the other missions the group has is to hold others in the community “who call themselves leaders” accountable.

    She told the Defender that I Am Deborah is an attempt to address the “tired and outdated state of our community.”

    The march last month came shortly after two state leaders made an appeal for the National Guard to step in and help stem the violence in some of the city’s neighborhoods.

    Police Supt. Jody Weis immediately rejected the idea, saying that violent crime occurs only in a small percentage of the city’s neighborhoods. The police chief continued to urge citizens to get more involved in helping the police solve and tackle violent crimes, especially shootings, by breaking what he called a code of silence.

    I Am Deborah is calling on women – and men – to help with safety patrols, mentor, tutor and encourage families to urge their members to stop the violence.

    On Mother’s Day, the group will be “walking in solidarity” at 9 a.m. in Brainerd Park “to stop the violence and take a stand on our community and our people,” Porter-Ollarvia said.”

      *sigh*

      In the Bible, in that part of Judges, Deborah was a judge because THE MEN IN THE SOCIETY AT THAT TIME HAD ABDICATED ALL RESPONSIBILITY AS MEN TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR SOCIETY!!!
      and, it wasn’t commended, it was JUDGED AS BAD!!
      Gah!!

      I used to work in child’s mental health and I feel the same way as you Khadija. Too many blind eyes and too many people who can’t wait to blame others to protect the poor BM molester/abuser at the expense of AA BW and AA children. The ship is sinking and sinking fast…

    • Faith says:

      If they’re not going to name names and hold the real culprits accountable their efforts are going to fail. But let them try and exhaust themselves. Maybe then they’ll stop avoiding the obvious. Ok they won’t as a group but maybe a few of these misguided women. At least they’re not being silent.

    • truth p. says:

      Why would they spend mothers day doing this?Are AA women allowed any rest?I’m smh @ the entire situation especially the fact that I know that many aa men will encourage this nonsense instead of being embarassed by it and doing the marching and protecting on their own.I know the intentions are good but I just don’t believe that this is good for those women.I wonder how many of them are single w/children?I would ask how many of them are assisted by the fathers but I can tell from a few comments made, i.e “These are our children dying,”We just want to take >FULL< responsibility and accountability; galvanize, organize and strategize to save our people’s lives. … As women, we’re taking this into our hands because, you know, we’re the ones that are carrying all these babies”,
      that the fathers have been completely exonerated of all respeonsibility.

      The whole entire thing screams of dysfunction.This stuff literally makes my blood boil.I'm all for aa women who may have had a baby by a dbr taking responsibility for their children but I do not feel that dbr's should be exonerated of responsibility to the child at least not financially,because we know that dbr covers a whole array of dysfunction and evil.If these women actively pursued child support than just maybe their kids wouldn't have to live in those communities and deal with all that evil.Many of them are willing to take money and everything else from the government but will not seek child support.All they care about is saving the po' bm and his rep.They don't give a darn about their children if they did they'd be asking these males to be more accountable for uncontrollable young bm that bw cannot do anything with.It's a shame and it pisses me off.

  3. Sharifa,

    Thank you for your kind words about the post; I truly appreciate it. You said, “I get an almost instantaneous headache when I hear these predator-enabling statements from BW. That’s why I limit my conversations about some of these issues/cases with certain people.”

    I know exactly what you mean. My eyes start to glaze over when I hear certain things. And then I say a prayer for the safety of any children being raised by—or around—such foolish women. I think many of us don’t realize what a security liability these women are.

    KM,

    You said, “In the Bible, in that part of Judges, Deborah was a judge because THE MEN IN THE SOCIETY AT THAT TIME HAD ABDICATED ALL RESPONSIBILITY AS MEN TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR SOCIETY!!!
    and, it wasn’t commended, it was JUDGED AS BAD!!
    Gah!! “

    My mouth dropped open when I first read that news story. Without being familiar with the Bible, I had the feeling that what these women are doing CAN’T possibly be the biblically correct answer! Especially given the fact that they want to hold everybody “accountable” EXCEPT the violent criminals who are killing all these people in their neighborhood(s). How these women managed to interpret an Old Testament section of the Bible . . . which is apparently chock full of accounts of the Israelites KILLING large numbers of their enemies—including the members of a corrupt Israelite tribe (the tribe of Benjamin)— into a rationale for protecting violent criminals (from being effectively policed) is far beyond my understanding. I’ll eventually get around to asking my friend (who is a Christian minister) about all of this. {shaking my head in amazement}

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

      Where are all the “Good Brothers”? Yes, I am being sarcastic.

      If they were present in such massive numbers as so many sister soldiers are always stating, there would not be any need for such a movement. It is madness…women doing men’s work.

      This is also a classic example of doing mental acrobatics to avoid the “Elephant in the Room”, namely that in a patriarchal world, the males have failed in their responsibility to defend and protect the women and children in their community.

      Back to the topic: Yes, there are many enablers and the wise will recognize them for what they are and put major distance away from these people. They can cost you your life and/or the life of your children.

  4. Tee says:

    My mother (God bless her), is too forgiving of foolishness. I saw this as a child.

    Too many people who did not love or have a vested interest in me and my siblings were allowed into my mother’s circle of friends.

    This is why I never allowed my son to spend summers with my mother. I never really felt safe/protected as a child.

    Regarding the article:

    These women are foolish. They are up against a Roman war machine, and they will pay greatly for it.

    The article said—

    “She had orders from God to take care of her people. So we took that and we’re running with it,” Africa Porter-Ollarvia told the Defender. She is one of the leaders of the movement and a longtime volunteer at the Black Star Project.

    Did Porter-Ollarvia hear God’s voice too,or the voices of others pumping her up for this nonsense?

    Too many Christians make the mistake of reading a biblical passage, and think because the Lord did something extraordinary for that person, he will do it for them.

    Seldom do they read the entire story–what was going on at the time, and why was Deborah so special that God would raise her up to such a position.

    WOW! (Eyes wide open, jaw to the floor)

    Great post my Lady!

  5. Karen,

    I don’t mind discussing the news story. Especially since I’m the one who brought it up in this conversation! *Smile*

    I’m still flabbergasted by this news story, and I don’t think I’m going to get over that sensation. I keep clicking back to look at the photo that goes with that news story: “I am Deborah & I protect my community” {shaking my head in amazement}

    You said, “Where are all the “Good Brothers”? Yes, I am being sarcastic.

    If they were present in such massive numbers as so many sister soldiers are always stating, there would not be any need for such a movement. It is madness…women doing men’s work.”

    Yes, indeed. I wonder what goes through these women’s heads as they march past the legions of passive, NON-protector and NON-provider, “good” adult AA males who live in that neighborhood.

    {sarcasm on} To quote the reaction of a reader named Omi (from the conversation immediately preceding this one)—I suppose all of this means that these particular BW in that neighborhood “know a lot of the wrong brothas.” {sarcasm off}

    I also don’t understand how they believe that a mass of women marching around carrying signs saying “I am Deborah & I protect my community” is going to stop the brutal attacks and MURDERS in that neighborhood. Who is that message (on their signs) directed to? And how is that message supposed to stop the killers from continuing their killing spree? I just don’t get it.

    You said, “This is also a classic example of doing mental acrobatics to avoid the “Elephant in the Room”, namely that in a patriarchal world, the males have failed in their responsibility to defend and protect the women and children in their community.”

    Yes, the mental gymnastics involved in this “I am Deborah” mess are amazing. Another “speed bump” to my comprehension of their action is how they managed to get this idea from that part of the Bible. Like the Quran and the Torah, the Bible is a fairly violent text. The Bible also recommends that the Israelites engage in ethnic cleansing and atrocities such as took place in Bosnia during the break-up of Yugoslavia. My point is that these Bible stories usually do NOT include soft and tender handling of the Israelites’ enemies—such folks usually end up DEAD. And the slaying of such folks is typically praised in the Bible.

    I’ll ultimately get around to reading through Judges and talk to my friend the minister. But from a quick glance at all of that, it would seem to me that the violent BM criminals that these women are shielding from the National Guard are akin to the corrupt Israelite tribe mentioned during that passage. The corrupt tribe of Benjamin that the other Israelites turned on—and in the account, they K-I-L-L-E-D thousands of these corrupt tribesmen as recompense for their corruption. Part of said corruption apparently involved these corrupt tribesmen gang raping and killing some man’s concubine.

    How these women twisted all of this around into a message to reject armed security (the National Guard) being brought in to protect THEM and THEIR children is beyond me. I keep harping on this particular point because it reminds me of a critique that Malcolm X made about so many AA Christians of his era—too many of them interpreted their Bible in a way that justified their cowardice and the status quo. That’s what I see happening here.

    Tee,

    Thank you for your kind words about the post; I truly appreciate it.

    You said, “My mother (God bless her), is too forgiving of foolishness. I saw this as a child. Too many people who did not love or have a vested interest in me and my siblings were allowed into my mother’s circle of friends.

    This is why I never allowed my son to spend summers with my mother. I never really felt safe/protected as a child.”

    That was wise of you to protect your son from being left in the care of careless people. Too many AA women let themselves be guilt-tripped into risking their children’s safety by leaving them unattended with various careless relatives.

    You said, “These women are foolish. They are up against a Roman war machine, and they will pay greatly for it.”

    Yes, indeed. I don’t think I’ll get over the shock of that story.

    You said, “Too many Christians make the mistake of reading a biblical passage, and think because the Lord did something extraordinary for that person, he will do it for them.”

    It amazes me to watch so many AAs look for supernatural intervention in their problems when God has already made earthly solutions readily available. He already provided the answers—which are staring these wilfully clueless AAs in their faces. But they don’t like those answers, and want other answers. Preferably supernatural, miraculous ones. {more head shaking}

    You said, “Seldom do they read the entire story–what was going on at the time, and why was Deborah so special that God would raise her up to such a position.”

    Yes, and I don’t understand how they missed the many accounts of K-I-L-L-I-N-G enemies in the Bible. There doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of appealing to an enemy’s (often non-existent) conscience in the Old Testament stories. Instead, there was a lot of direct, violent action taken against such persons. And this fighting is praised in the Bible. How does any of that “justify” the shielding of criminals? {yet more head shaking}

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

  6. I’ve not studied the situation in Chicago that closely, but I have worked these type situations. It’s my understanding that they’re having a power vacuum whereas a lot of gang leaders have been incarcerated and there are turf wars going on. If that’s the case I say play it as it lays. In other words, I’m not necessarily opposed to gangbangers killing one another. If, however, real people (No, I don’t consider gangbangers and other assorted criminal sociopaths to be real people) are being killed it’s time for swift action. I personally wouldn’t want the National Guard, not because I fear gangbangers being killed, but because I don’t think it’s fair to SOLDIERS to be put in the place of POLICE. Soldiers (Except MPs, and if they plan to send MPs I withdraw my objection), are not trained to police. Soldiers are trained to kill the enemy on sight. I’d hate for soldiers in doing what they’ve been trained to do, to wind up being charged with killing one of these fools and we know that’s what will happen with all these so-called community activists running around.

    One of the things we studied in grad school was the correlation between a population’s attitudes toward rape and sexual violence and the prevalence of rape and sexual violence in a particular population. Every time there was a strong relationship between the two. If the population had a negative attitude toward charging men with these crimes or felt that the woman was somehow at fault, the crime was always more prevalent. Of course, this is a chicken and egg situation, did the attitude exist and feed the crime, or did the prevalence of the crime normalize the behavior and thus increase the attitude. I submit that it’s probably the former rather than the latter.

    Black communities like the one I grew up in were almost a country onto themselves. They were formed as a bulwark against Jim Crow and for the most part as long as the criminals didn’t bother white people they were more or less allowed free reign within those communities. In my neighborhood it was common to hear talk of teenaged boys and young adult males “running trains” and various other sexual assaults on women and girls. Typically those girls were from “trashy” families and other than warning us to be careful nothing was done about it.

    That all changed when I was twelve, and some young men from my neighborhood kidnapped a friend of mine and sexually assaulted her. This act was so blatant that law enforcement couldn’t ignore it. I’ve always wondered if the community hadn’t turned a blind eye to this behavior prior to that, if this ever would’ve happened. The sad part about this is this happened in a poor neighborhood barely out of Jim Crow in the south. The attitudes, while inexcusable are certainly understandable. What in the name of all heaven is our excuse now for defending these cretins?

  7. Hodan says:

    this aught to be a social study class and a monthly group discussion in every neighborhood within our communities. I work with youth, mostly black and other racially disfranchises groups and the layers of harmful believe and socialized norms is amazingly sad.

    Until we join the so-called mainstream society, or white community’s rejection of all criminally deviant men who holds more harm than good for them, we will continue to foster a toxic environment for our women and children of both gender.

  8. Faith says:

    That attitude is being expressed over the arrest of a former NFL player for raping a 16 year old. Some are using the word prostitute to dismiss the fact he still had sex with a minor. Besides in what world is it okay for a 16 y.o. to be a prostitute in the first place! Clearly there is abuse and expoloitation going on!

    I contrast that with the story of a university student who murdered his ex-girlfriend. Apparently he shook her and banged her head against the wall violently enough to kill her and stole her laptop. Yes the “kid” comes from a wealthy family and they’re both white but the white community has made sure to kick in PUNISHMENT. Despite the initial effort of the defense attorney to claim it was an “accident”, the prosecutor is lobbying for a death penalty charge. They are not playing.

    There are no rallies required.

    I took one look at that picture and SMDH.

    MEN protect communities. Not women. And if a woman is living in such a “community” (NOT) she needs to LEAVE ASAP and join an actual community that is working.

    I shake my head at these poor African-American women living in these Hell Holes. The older ones who can’t or won’t leave need to be PUSHING the younger ones OUT who do have a chance. So that they won’t be in the same Hell Holes as the older generation.

    These poor BW STILL (I can’t comprehend why) don’t understand that NO one is going to come to their rescue. They’ll have to save themselves by leaving. By not having anything to do with DBRBM. DBR men, or women period regardless of ancestry. But as long as they have what looks like a sick fetish to help “save” and protect these damaged beyond repair black males who are their sons, grandsons, cousins, boyfriends, even strangers (seriously SMH), they are LOST. Which means most are lost – and will continue to be victimized ALONE – because most still suffer from this affliction that I do not understand.

    The masses are gone and will continue to be gone because of their twisted and disturbed mindset. BUT, there IS a growing minority that IS savable. And a minority who never drank the kool-aid to begin with thank God. These BW empowerment sites are a GOD SEND to them.

    So thank God they exist.

    FWIW below is a link to an example of what an ACTUAL WORKING community looks like. These Asians in the Bay Area are FED UP with these DBRBM monsters. And I support their efforts to protect their people 100%.

    Notice that it is the MEN in their communities who are on the forefront of their struggle to protect their people.

    This is what a normal working community looks like.

    Jesse and Sharpton IMO need to be kicked in their behinds for getting worked up about these Hispanics in Arizona when BW (and others who have the misfortune of coming in contact with them) are being racially profiled by DBRBM. Targeted for harassment, abuse, and sometimes death. Jesse and Sharpton haven’t cleaned up their own backyards and they want to fight for the rights of someone else?

    SMH They have unfinished business in the black community to take care of.

      That is so true. Urban terrorism is a critical piece of *very* unfinished business. Sweep around your own front door.

      We must never forget the so-called black male leaders are offering their help with their hands out and expect something in return. We should not be making any efforts as individuals without reciprocity either. The Revs aren’t doing anything different from what they’ve been doing. As long as “we” the collective continue to let them do as they please they will, but it’s not as if Obama’s going to do better. They bulldozed 1/4 of Dettroit rather “quietly” a week or so ago and we know we must focus on securing our own positions in society as individual women.

    Khadija,

    I really appreciate your continued vigilance and discussion of these issues. Too many times these issues are just swept under the rug. I also appreciate that you draw on your legal experience to supplement the discussion. Thank you for this.

    Hi Kadejah! I haven’t commented in a few months but do not worry, I HAVE been reading 🙂

    I really don’t know what’s going on and I was thinking the other day: we’ve had all these natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and accusations of political corruption going on lately. Notice any patterns!? I seriously think that something BIG is going to happen in the USA soon, maybe even the world. It will probably be sudden and anyone who doesn’t fit the “bill” will be harmed in some way. Hate to be a conspieracy theorist but whatever is happening is not good and there’s nothing that anyone can do about it! Or….maybe I’m just being crazy and the world is just messed up in general lol! Let me know what you think!

    Correct link…

    Andy Lee, 39, carried a sign bearing images of Oscar Grant III and Tian Sheng Yu, a 59-year-old San Francisco man who died last month after being beaten in a random attack in downtown Oakland while he was shopping with his son. Two suspects have been arrested in the attack.
    Grant, who was shot and killed by former BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle at an Oakland BART station in 2009, is black.
    Lee, a San Francisco resident, said he simply wants the suspects in both cases to pay for their alleged crimes.
    “It’s not a color issue … there should be justice for what they did,”he said.
    In San Francisco, there have been at least three recent attacks against Asian Americans at or near San Francisco Municipal Railway T-Third light rail stops. One of the victims, 83-year-old Huan Chen, died in March after being beaten at a bus stop near Third Street and Oakdale Avenue.
    “No matter what, if [the victims] are Chinese, Caucasian, you don’t have the right to come out and beat up other people,” Lee said.
    A number of city supervisors attended the rally, including Board of Supervisors President David Chiu, who called the recent violence “tragic” and “horrific.”
    Chiu mentioned a number of positive changes since the recent attacks, including meetings between politicians and community leaders, more police officers assigned to the southeastern part of the city and a bilingual drop-in center where Asian victims can go to report crimes.

    When a community is truly fed up and SERIOUS they get the police involved. But what do you have in too many segments of the black community? “No snitching”.

    Many of these BW who are victims of these DBRBM are simply not serious about putting an end to it.

    Because that would involve law enforcement.

    Prey protecting the predators…

    • ZooPath says:

      Ugh, this targeting of asians by blacks is soooo emabarassing. Not a good look at all. If it makes the asian victims feel any better these DBRs are just as violent to other black people.

  14. **Reader’s Note**

    I just realized that I didn’t mention where I got the “these Deborah movement women don’t want effective security” impression from. The reader who informed me about the news story had forwarded to me an announcement sent out by some of the Deborah movement organizers. In part, it said:

    “Deborahs are encouraged to:

    1) Join us at an elementary school to mentor young girls on Friday, May 7, 2010. Please call [I deleted this info] at […] for more information.

    2) Join us at Operation PUSH on Saturday, May 8, 2010, at 10:00 am, 950 West 50th Street, Chicago, Illinois for a Women Against Violence Rally.

    3) Join us at a Mother’s Day Rally at Brainerd Park, 1246 West 92nd Street, Chicago, Illinois, on Sunday, May 9, 2010 at 1:30 pm to organize mothers and women to stop violence among our children and in our communities.

    4) Join us on Monday, May 10, 2010 at 7:00 pm, at a meeting being convene by State Representative LaShawn Ford to tell him that we need jobs and resources more than we need the National Guard in Chicago. Please call [..] at [..] for more information.

    5) Join us on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, at 6:00 pm at 3509 South King Drive to board a bus to visit Gary, Indiana where a 5 year old boy was beaten to death and to join Deborahs from Gary, East Chicago and Hammond who are also fed up with the death and destruction of Black children.”

  15. Crecilla says:

    Khadija,

    I am absolutely appalled at the “I am Deborah” movement. These women, however well-intentioned, are missing a few critical points. 1 – They are ALREADY fighting a man’s battle by trying to raise children on their own. The result: rampant violence by unchecked, disrespectful boys and young men who do not have a CLUE what manhood entails. They have not seen a man working everyday and protecting his family. But they have seen Pookie shoot Ray Ray for disrespecting him. So, they do what they see — which is violent and utter foolishness.

    2 – Many of these women are already fighting a man’s battle by being the sole financial provider of the household. The result: AA women have almost no net worth and in many of these communities, they actually have negative net worth.

    3 – If they are already fighting men’s battles and LOSING, what makes them think that they can fight and win this battle (which, technically is the result of LOSING the other battles)?

    They are not physically stronger than the male criminals, so how do they propose to “police” them? They do not have the assistance of MALES, which is necessary.

    Maybe they can “start snitching” — which may get them or their family killed. Or, they can urge their adult female children to stop reproducing with men who have no job and will not marry them…Perhaps these women should focus on a cultural shift. It’s their community’s culture that is killing them. Although, Khadija, you may simply argue that they should focus on MOVING, which is what I would do.

    Study finds median wealth for single black women at $5

    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/10068/1041225-84.stm

    “Among the most startling revelations in the wealth data is that while single white women in the prime of their working years (ages 36 to 49) have a median wealth of $42,600 (still only 61 percent of their single white male counterparts), the median wealth for single black women is only $5.”

    “Married or cohabitating white women have a median wealth of $167,500. Married or cohabitating black women have a median net worth of $31,500.”

    Khadija, you did it again! This very post explains in large part why I don’t speak to/with my best friend of 25 yrs much these days…I can’t even repeat what she said re: Chris Brown (actually, I finally stopped trying to figure out her rant on same).

    _____

    Hm, a mention of the National Guard ensues, and the “men” are still MIA–not even a half-baked co-sign from the errant ex-gangbanger or CeaseFire.

    when I first read the headline, I was thinking along the lines of a concerned citizen named Deborah who “snitched” then later moved out (or died), only to have these painfully misguided women capitalize on her memory, living or otherwise. Oh wait, then I kept reading. *sad face* No such luck–just more butchering of the Bible (and the Old Testament at that! Religiosity is a heckuva drug *smh*) to justify further sacrificing/sabotaging themselves and…and…even if my head weren’t congested right now, this STILL wouldn’t compute! This hurts and frustrates me to my core; I don’t dare ask how many of those women are my age (or my mother’s age, for that matter).

    Just another sign of the Ghettocalypse, folks. I’ll be flagging down a moving truck in the meantime; no telling what rally(ies) the indoctrinated BW in my neck of the woods are plotting as I type…*sigh*

  18. Roslyn,

    My take on the situation in Chicago is that:

    1-It feels to me as if this has been constantly going on for approximately the last 20-25 years. There’s been a constant “drip” of these “Black child killed by gangbangers” news stories. The number and pace of these incidents have increased over the years.

    2-Part of the reason why the number and tempo of these murders have increased over the years has been due to the spread of criminality among the AA population.

    When I first started doing defense work years ago, an AA defendant who was a college student or from a middle-class family was usually: (1) a normal young person who got in with the wrong crowd, or (2) did something stupid on impulse. They were a noticeable breed apart from the housing project/hoodrat-defendant population. You could immediately pick them out of a crowd of defendants standing around. Even if everyone in the crowd was casually dressed in jeans and sneakers.

    Not anymore. There is NO LONGER any meaningful difference in appearance, comportment, demeanor, attitude, or lack of manners between AA defendants from families that are “good families” on the surface and the housing project inhabitants.

    3-The City of Chicago has demolished most of these housing projects over the past years. Previously, the violent-hoodrat criminal population was concentrated and quarantined in these projects—AWAY from normal AAs. Now that the projects were demolished, these violent criminals’ mamas were given Section 8 vouchers. White and Latino neighborhoods would not tolerate having these people dumped in their areas.

    So this AA hoodrat population was dumped into previously working-class and middle-class AA neighborhoods. The hoodrats brought their violent crime with them to these previously more-or-less stable AA neighborhoods. The gangbanger murders that previously had been concentrated and mostly limited to the housing projects have now been dispersed throughout AA neighborhoods throughout the city.

    When this dumping and invasions of Section 8 individuals into other AA neighborhoods first began, many working-class and middle-class AAs were naive and didn’t want to be “snobs.” There were many arguments on local Black talk radio about how the rest of us should welcome Section 8 individuals into our neighborhoods. Not anymore. Not after the past years of being victimized by Section 8 invaders and their violent crime. I don’t hear many callers defending Section 8 bums anymore on local Black talk radio. The conversations have shifted to being more about how to get/keep Section 8 recipients OUT of one’s neighborhood.

    4-AA Negro criminals and gangs are not as organized as Latino gangs, much less organized and professional like the serious White and Asian mobsters. They’re too dumb to be organized. Organized, professional criminals tend to keep their violence within their own circles, and mostly leave civilians out of their crossfire. Randomly killing up civilians leads to increased police presence, which hinders their business operations.

    Since AA gangs (at least the Chicago-based ones) are not seriously organized like White organized crime, there’s constant turmoil from territory and hierarchy struggles between an ever-shifting cast of AA idiots. Successful drug dealers and other criminals have their cases in the FEDERAL courts, not the state court systems (which is where most AA Negro criminals are).

    For the most part, AA gangbangers never “graduate” beyond being fools standing on street corners yelling, “Rock, weed, blow!” The police don’t even have to bother getting a search warrant to harvest their quota-crop of Negro AA criminals. Because they’re stupid enough to conduct their bottom of the barrel level of criminal business out in the open on the street. Meanwhile, I’ve read reports of how certain groups of Mexican criminals in other parts of the country have come up with a home-delivery service for selling drugs to White folks. While leaving everybody else who’s uninvolved ALONE.

    You said, “If the population had a negative attitude toward charging men with these crimes or felt that the woman was somehow at fault, the crime was always more prevalent. Of course, this is a chicken and egg situation, did the attitude exist and feed the crime, or did the prevalence of the crime normalize the behavior and thus increase the attitude. I submit that it’s probably the former rather than the latter.”

    I agree.

    You said, “Black communities like the one I grew up in were almost a country onto themselves. They were formed as a bulwark against Jim Crow and for the most part as long as the criminals didn’t bother white people they were more or less allowed free reign within those communities. In my neighborhood it was common to hear talk of teenaged boys and young adult males “running trains” and various other sexual assaults on women and girls. Typically those girls were from “trashy” families and other than warning us to be careful nothing was done about it.”

    Growing up in my childhood neighborhood, guys couldn’t get away with anything as overt as “running trains” because most of the girls had fathers in the home who would NOT tolerate that. Doing something like that to a girl from a “good” family with an in-home dad was a good way to end up dead—or at minimum end up in prison. This only applied to in-home dads who were MARRIED. That “train” stuff was mostly done to poor AA girls and young women. At that time, what individual rapists could get away with in terms of AA girls from “good” families was individual date rapes, or attempted date rapes.

    Hodan,

    You said, “I work with youth, mostly black and other racially disfranchises groups and the layers of harmful believe and socialized norms is amazingly sad.”

    They’re deranged and damaged beyond repair, as far as I’m concerned. It’s best for normal people to simply get as far away from them as possible. Outside of striking distance.
    ___________________________________________

    Faith,

    You said, “That attitude is being expressed over the arrest of a former NFL player for raping a 16 year old. Some are using the word prostitute to dismiss the fact he still had sex with a minor. Besides in what world is it okay for a 16 y.o. to be a prostitute in the first place! Clearly there is abuse and expoloitation going on!”

    Oh yes—a history of being sexually abused and exploited is how many of these underaged girls in these situations became sexually “experienced” in the first place! It’s really some FOUL and EVIL “logic” when you think about: So, because some earlier pervert was successful in “breaking the girl in,” therefore it’s “okay” for a NEW batch of perverts to sexually exploit the girl???

    As far as the 2nd case you mentioned, White American men DON’T play when it comes to punishing anybody who harms their women and girls.

    Thank you for your kind words and encouragement; I truly appreciate it.

    I don’t enjoy relating what some trial lawyers refer to as “war stories,” but I see that too many AAs have a romanticized view of AA criminal defendants. What all these naive “I believe in redemption/2d chances” AA fools don’t realize is that 99% of the criminals that they worry so much about DON’T CARE—and have NO remorse whatsoever! Most criminals don’t give a single thought to the suffering that they cause their victims. Everything is always all about THEM.

    MissASP,

    Glad to hear that you’re still reading! 🙂 I don’t want to veer too far off topic, but I’ll say this in response to your question: I believe that a number of YUCKY things are headed our way as a planet, as a country, and as a specific people (AAs). I would suggest that you check out the blog posts at the previous blog with the tags “Reality Check” and “Geostrategy Nerd” for conversations about how to prepare as best one can.

    Crecilla,

    You said, “I am absolutely appalled at the “I am Deborah” movement.”

    Guurl, I feel the same way. I’m totally flabbergasted by the whole thing. It’s several steps beyond crazy… It’s amazing to see people do what one of my friends refers to as “trying to breathe water.”

    Yes, I believe any sensible person would run for their lives and leave those neighborhoods. I know it’ll sound cold as ice, but I don’t necessarily want these Deborah movement women to leave those areas. Since they’re that misguided, perhaps it’s safer for the rest of us that they DON’T leave and come among more normal people. I’m sure that these types of women would destroy any sanctuary by bringing their DBRBM sons, nephews, cousins and boyfriends with them to any new setting.

    {still shaking my head}

      This conversation is taking place in DC now. The younger middle class black professionals who are moving into Ward 8 (Anacostia-Marion Barry) are putting the kibbosh on more projects there…finally. My ward, 1, is a gentrifying barrio. I spend a lot of time on neighborhood blogs observing how these white yuppies and grad students (who will be yuppies whether they want to or not) handle their business. They attend every committee meeting and demand accountability of their councilmembers. It is THIS demographic that will keep the current CM from kow-towing too far to the Latino vote and keeps the current mayor from letting Marion Barry’s sycophants destroy the city.

      4-AA Negro criminals and gangs are not as organized as Latino gangs, much less organized and professional like the serious White and Asian mobsters. They’re too dumb to be organized. Organized, professional criminals tend to keep their violence within their own circles, and mostly leave civilians out of their crossfire. Randomly killing up civilians leads to increased police presence, which hinders their business operations

      As I said, I live in a gentrified barrio. MS-13 is definitely in the area. I have seen them, walked by them and stared at them. The smile and go on about their business. No lewd comments no hands where they are not supposed to be. NO RANDOM shootings. Best believe they are about their business, which is worldwide and lucrative. As much as I abhor gangs, I’d rather live around them then the black gangs/”crews” (DC political nomenclature to deflect the severity of a problem they can’t resolve). They are smart enough to know who to leave alone. They do NOT commit crimes against white people. Last year there was a rumor that they were going to “shoot random black women.” (1) what does that say about “our” nut-grabbin’ thugs that this rumor even has traction; (2) it feeds upon the glaring absence of male protectors in poor black communities.

      • SweetSoulSister says:

        MS-13 do in fact commit crimes against white people. In my home county (Loudoun County, Virginia), they killed an older man (William Bennett) out for a walk in his neighborhood, with his wife (Cynthia Bennett) and they attempted to kill the wife but she lived. This happened as part of a gang initiation. I grew up in this county and it is very affluent and had literally ZERO crime until hispanic gangs came in (I can’t even believe they can afford to live there, actually). My area (Northern Virginia) has been ruined by this scum and yes, they do kill whites. In fact, they will kill anyone.

  19. I found the L.A. Times news article that mentioned the (intelligent) business model used by some Mexican drug dealers who have come to the US from small villages in Mexico. This is quite a contrast from the open chaos and violence that AA criminals generally create. http://tinyurl.com/245yfky

    From the Feb. 14, 2010 edition of the Los Angeles Times story,

    “A lethal business model targets Middle America: Sugar cane farmers from a tiny Mexican county use savvy marketing and low prices to push black-tar heroin in the U.S.”

    “Immigrants from an obscure corner of Mexico are changing heroin use in many parts of America.

    Farm boys from a tiny county that once depended on sugar cane have perfected an ingenious business model for selling a semi-processed form of Mexican heroin known as black tar.

    Using convenient delivery by car and aggressive marketing, they have moved into cities and small towns across the United States, often creating demand for heroin where there was little or none. In many of those places, authorities report increases in overdoses and deaths.

    Immigrants from Xalisco in the Pacific Coast state of Nayarit, Mexico, they have brought an audacious entrepreneurial spirit to the heroin trade. Their success stems from both their product, which is cheaper and more potent than Colombian heroin, and their business model, which places a premium on customer convenience and satisfaction.

    Users need not venture into dangerous neighborhoods for their fix. Instead, they phone in their orders and drivers take the drug to them. Crew bosses sometimes call users after a delivery to check on the quality of service. They encourage users to bring in new customers, rewarding them with free heroin if they do.

    In contrast to Mexico’s big cartels — violent, top-down organizations that mainly enrich a small group — the Xalisco networks are small, decentralized businesses. Each is run by an entrepreneur whose workers may soon strike out on their own and become his competitors. They have no all-powerful leader and rarely use guns, according to narcotics investigators and imprisoned former dealers.

    Leaving the wholesale business to the cartels, they have mined outsize profits from the retail trade, selling heroin a tenth of a gram at a time. Competition among the networks has reduced prices, further spreading heroin addiction.

    …Their acumen and energy are a major reason why Mexican heroin has become more pervasive in this country, gaining market share at a time when heroin use overall is stable or declining, according to government estimates.

    …Xalisco bosses have avoided the nation’s largest cities with established heroin organizations. Instead, using Southern California and Phoenix as staging areas, they have established networks in Salt Lake City; Reno; Boise, Idaho; Indianapolis; Nashville; and Myrtle Beach, S.C., among other places. From those cities, their heroin — called black tar because it’s sticky and dark — has made its way into suburbs and small towns.

    …Among the idiosyncrasies of Xalisco dealers is that they generally do not sell to African Americans or Latinos. Instead, they have focused on middle- and working-class whites, believing them to be a safer and more profitable clientele, according to narcotics investigators and former dealers. “They’re going to move to a city with many young white people,” Chavez said. ‘That’s who uses their drug and that’s who they’re not afraid of….'” [the story continues]

    I’m always amazed by the lack of concern for the victim(s) – but black folk are falling all over themselves worrying about the outcome for the criminal(s). I’m like “Excuse Me?!?”.

    Personally, I would have loved to see the National Guard coming in to “clean-up” simply because I feel that if these thugs want to act like animals, they need to be PUT-DOWN like animals! Harsh, I know. *Shrugs*

    While these women are totally sad and delusional, I did get a rather good laugh at their complete ignorance (or glossing over) of the Bible. And, yes, folks love to ignore the abundance of very “natural” resources that the Creator has provided and wait around for the “supernatural”. Notice the army of ten thousand men (not women) and male leader (named Barak, no less)in the story so aptly overlooked. Also, please note that she went with him, not for him!!!

    Gurl… I just CAN’T with these sometime Bible women. *Rant-off*

    As always – keep bringing truth.

I don’t believe it of course but how many black people who went to school believes this mess subconsciously? Yes black women need to leave the ghetto and not look back. Yes, many white conservatives are NOT RACIST they just want to know what the heck is going on with us (not wanting to snitch) etc.

  22. Zoe1231,

    You’re welcome!

    You said, “I’m always amazed by the lack of concern for the victim(s) – but black folk are falling all over themselves worrying about the outcome for the criminal(s). I’m like “Excuse Me?!?”.”

    As I said in the post, I believe that this reaction is the fruit of incidents like the Scottsboro case, lynchings, Rosa Parks’ arrest, etc. That widespread, historical experience of oppression by a racist court system taught AAs to view AA defendants as something like political prisoners.

    The problem is that this view of AA defendants is OBSOLETE. The court system is still utterly racist through and through. However, the defendants are ALSO racist (most Black underclass defendants that I’ve observed have a deep and abiding hatred for other Black people—which they express in their behavior), vicious and violent—through and through.

    I will add that most AAs have no real sense of reality about the court system. I’m not bothered by its racism—because from what I’ve read there’s NO “better” court system in any other country. Similar to our whining about the public schools**, what most AAs don’t realize is that most other court systems—including those in civilized, stable countries like the UK and France—DON’T coddle defendants as much as the US courts.

    [**Most countries on this planet DON’T have totally free public school systems. In most countries, parents can’t do what the majority of AAs do—use the public schools as a free babysitting service and make no investment whatsoever in their children’s education. In most countries around the world, parents have to pay school fees, school uniform fees, etc. AAs complain about so many things without realizing that they would be even worse off in other countries. So many AAs are totally out of touch with reality.]

    In some Western European countries, there’s no concept of bail/bond—they’ll get around to your case, whenever they get around to it. And you wait in jail until they get around to it. In some Western European countries, there’s no concept of the adversarial system. Instead, cases are perceived as a joint search for “the truth” by both sides. Well, this wouldn’t work out very well for the bulk of defendants—who are generally guilty. [If not guilty of what they were arrested for, then guilty of something else. People don’t automatically get arrested the very first time they do something wrong.]

    So, my issue isn’t so much with racism in the court system—that’s to be found anywhere. My issue is with the sanctimonious hypocrisy of the US court system. Other places’ court systems don’t tell so many lies regarding their operations. They don’t pretend to be about “equal justice, yadda, yadda, yadda.” So everybody’s on notice in other countries that you really need to stay OUT of the courts.

    Various players in the US court system claim to be so much better than other places, and they’re not. If they just ‘fessed up and told people up front what the real deal is in terms of court, then I wouldn’t have a problem. Fair warning and notice.

    Although, I will add that AAs want to have it both ways: We’ve been whining for almost a century about the racism of the US court system. But yet we act shocked and surprised when we do things to end up in the court system and are hit with racism-based enhanced penalties for our actions. Well, since we already know it’s racist, we can’t then seriously “clutch our pearls” in horror and claim to be surprised when it does something racist.

    You said, “While these women are totally sad and delusional, I did get a rather good laugh at their complete ignorance (or glossing over) of the Bible.”

    That’s why I’m harping on that particular point. So many times, when AA women say crazy, DBR-enabling things that they claim are rooted in the Bible, nobody questions their wacky interpretations of scripture. I believe more of us need to start questioning these off-kilter citations of scripture.

    The things that are commonly accepted within the AA collective are NOT normal. Other people see what AAs are doing; they just don’t always say anything to us about it. [We tend to howl about racism whenever anybody talks about the deranged, savage things that so many AAs are involved in.]

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

      Khadija,
      Although, I will add that AAs want to have it both ways: We’ve been whining for almost a century about the racism of the US court system. But yet we act shocked and surprised when we do things to end up in the court system and are hit with racism-based enhanced penalties for our actions. Well, since we already know it’s racist, we can’t then seriously “clutch our pearls” in horror and claim to be surprised when it does something racist.

      I wasn’t going to comment on this, but when I followed the link to the article about razing parts of Detroit, I saw this headline, “Rally planned for 16 jailed teenagers.”

      “The NAACP Western Wayne County Branch plans to hold a rally at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday asking for the release of 16 African-American teens who were jailed after being cited for causing a misdemeanor disturbance in the township.”
      http://www.freep.com/article/20100510/NEWS05/5100333

      We all know the stakes are higher for black defendants in terms of conviction rates and length of sentences. That should only serve as an added incentive to make sure one avoids getting involved in the courts system. And it is an incredibly bad look that the AA “community” and organizations like the NAACP continue to focus on protecting and coddling these thugs and hoodlums rather than working to punish them and cast them out.

    Khadija:

    Oh yes—a history of being sexually abused and exploited is how many of these underaged girls in these situations became sexually “experienced” in the first place! It’s really some FOUL and EVIL “logic” when you think about: So, because some earlier pervert was successful in “breaking the girl in,” therefore it’s “okay” for a NEW batch of perverts to sexually exploit the girl???

    My reply:

    That presumes those evil creatures are even willing to recognize that a young underage girl could be sexually abused, or that if a young underage girls is sexually abused, that it is something terrible…This ties in, of course, with the mindsets that predominate among certain men and male-identified women, as you have been speaking about here.

    If no one can recognize that a young girl can be exploited or abused, then no one can certainly recognize, as you noted, when she falls into further abuse and exploitation afterward.

    The presumption exists that she is always acting out of free will; many act as though young girls have the agency of grown women; they no longer recognize the boundaries between childhood/girlhood and adulthood.

    Regarding the “Deborahs,” I went and re-read the book of judges to see where she was mentioned, and these women are just not reading it correctly, and you called it, even though you had not read the book and are not even a Christian!

    So what happened in the book. It is true, Deborah was a leader of her people, a prophetess, but she inspired the men to act and vanquish the enemies of her people. She inspired the men who would lead the armies. She prophesied that the general of their enemies’ army would be undone by a woman. But he was not undone by a woman who fought him in a public battle. She used a stealth strategy of seeming to help him when he was in need, ie., after his army had been vanquished–she gave him water and then let him rest. Once he fell asleep, she killed him.

    So if these Deborahs want to get it right, this is what it would look like.

    A Rev. Mama figure on a stage, ie., someone like the late Dorothy Height, surrounded by MEN; she would be introducing the young men who would be the leaders in fighting the battle.

    That would be the public face of the strategy. if the Deborahs insisted that they wanted to be like those ancient women of the Old Testament, they would need something more.

    The behind the scenes strategy would entail identifying some stone-serious (and brave) women to do battle behind the scenes in a stealth strategy. Here I’m thinking of a “honey trap,” where a woman would be brought in to seduce and then set up a man for his destruction.

    This is far more biblical than what these Deborahs are imagining–there are countless stories in the bible of women using the “honey trap.”

    Jubilee,

    Darwin did not write in any of his books that black men have the brains of 11 year old white men. Nor did he write a book called Survival of the Fittest. He didn’t even come up with the term ‘survival of the fittest.’

    Darwin was not a racist as commonly believed. The idea of racist human development was made by Ernst Haeckel. People have wrongly attrivuted other’s evolutionary ideas to Darwin’s theory of evolution.

  26. PioneerValleyWoman,

    You said, “If no one can recognize that a young girl can be exploited or abused, then no one can certainly recognize, as you noted, when she falls into further abuse and exploitation afterward.

    The presumption exists that she is always acting out of free will; many act as though young girls have the agency of grown women; they no longer recognize the boundaries between childhood/girlhood and adulthood.

    FOUL, FOUL, FOUL. There is much EVIL within the AA collective. And there will be a reckoning for our widespread lack of human decency. All of this is interconnected. And intertwined with our becoming a permanent underclass in this country.

    You said, “Regarding the “Deborahs,” I went and re-read the book of judges to see where she was mentioned, and these women are just not reading it correctly, and you called it, even though you had not read the book and are not even a Christian!”

    Well, I know that God does NOT endorse stupidity. And what these self-proclaimed “Deborahs” are doing is just so idiotic on so many levels that it could NOT have been rooted in scripture. This brings me to the next point: What has to happen for these Sista Soldiers (religious and secular) to get it through their heads that women are NOT supposed to be fighting on the front lines?!

    On the one hand, these particular Deborah fools at least realize that they’re fighting alone—without BM. They’re not hallucinating about that aspect of what’s going on. Some other BF Sista Soldier fools actually believe that there’s a cadre of BM fighting alongside of them. {more head shaking}

    You said, “This is far more biblical than what these Deborahs are imagining–there are countless stories in the bible of women using the “honey trap.”

    PVW, THANKS for clearing that up and breaking that down about that Bible passage. No matter how much the Sista Soldiers want to pretend, it is unheard of throughout human history for women to form the bulk of the troops on the front lines.

    **CRITICIZING A SACRED COW ALERT** I believe the normalizing of this “BW on the front lines” madness was one of several extremely negative, unintended consequences of the manner in which the Civil Rights Movement was conducted. Even as a preteen, I’ve always had deep misgivings about the cowardly decision to throw defenseless BW and Black children on the front lines to face off against rabid Bull Connors, etc. This “Deborah” mess is one particularly rotten fruit from that long-ago tree.

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

    Khadija said: “{sarcasm on} To quote the reaction of a reader named Omi (from the conversation immediately preceding this one)—I suppose all of this means that these particular BW in that neighborhood “know a lot of the wrong brothas.” {sarcasm off}”

    Immediately I read the story, this poster is the first thing that popped into my head. I decided that I was going to mention her in my reply but I see you also remembered what she said. What people like that (Omi) don’t get is that in any situation, if the women in a community are the ones who have to galvanize and ‘strategize’ for issues concerning that community, especially one as basic as safety and security, it means one thing…..that the ‘males’ in that community are REFUSING to do it!

    One thing that very few realise about the civil rights complex is this: it is well known that women were the foot soldiers of the civil rights movement. Even today, the majority of donations coming into organisations like the NAACP are from AAW’s pockets. What does that tell you of the BM today AND the BM of yester years who were all too keen on being leaders in the civil rights movement but left the foot soldiering to the women?

    I’m always shaken whenever I watch footage of, say, the Selma march. Because the footage is old, grainy and in black & white, it is easy for people to not see what was really going on. Try watching a few of these videos. You will notice that a high proportion of the Black folks being beaten by the police are women. You’ll see them with their batons and attack dogs, dragging these young women. I always wonder why those BM were all too comfortable with putting these women in harm’s way. Yes, it was a fight for equality, but let us be honest, that was a man’s fight. After all, when they were fighting for voting rights, the majority of them (the BM) just like WM, believed that women should not get the vote. Many of them were really fighting for civil right for BM. But they wanted BW to fight with them. Another aspect to it was the desire for increased access to WW, without the threat of beatings, lynchings etc (I know it makes many uncomfortable, but the fact that many of the BM in the CVM did not publicly say that is what they wanted does not mean they didn’t want it). So please tell me, what exactly was supposed to be the benefit to the women who marched with them.

    I know that part of the reason they put women on the frontline (e.g in the Selma case) was because of the belief that the police wouldn’t attack them. However, previous events should have led them to believe otherwise (and therefore, I don’t believe that these men actually believed that these women would be safe), yet they still put them out front. And even if they did think so, are they any different from the suicide bombers in Palestine who (falsely) assume that surrounding their house with a line of Palestinian children would stop Israeli police from firing on/bombing their buildings? It has never stopped the Israeli police, yet these folks continue to do it. Their motivation is because they KNOW that these innocent, defenceless children will get killed, so they need that angle to be shown in the media, as it is not good for the Israeli army’s image. I have yet to figure out the AAM’s motives for doing the same with AAW.

    “Yes, I believe any sensible person would run for their lives and leave those neighborhoods. I know it’ll sound cold as ice, but I don’t necessarily want these Deborah movement women to leave those areas. Since they’re that misguided, perhaps it’s safer for the rest of us that they DON’T leave and come among more normal people. I’m sure that these types of women would destroy any sanctuary by bringing their DBRBM sons, nephews, cousins and boyfriends with them to any new setting.”

    I don’t think you are being cold at all. I realised what was going on during the conversation on the previous blog (and other blogs) during the ‘ark’ and ‘divestment’ discussions. The vast majority of the women who were opposed to it did so because they saw in their sons/nephews the VERY damaged behaviour we speak about. So they wanted to ‘divest’ (obviously, they did not understand what it really meant), but wanted to bring their damaged relatives with them. They wanted other BW who had left to accept their damaged BM relatives and allow them to be in their midst. From the article, it seems that these women are the types who REFUSE to flatly say out loud WHO it is that is bringing destruction to their community. Secondly, they are against bringing in any ‘outside’ help (in this case, the National Guard), despite the fact that all their ‘in-house’ efforts to date have failed…..miserably. The vibe I get from these ‘I am Deborah’ women is the same I get from those who refuse to heed warnings till it is too late. If you bring them within your midst, you will pay for it….dearly.
    __________________________

    Regarding domestic violence, I’ll say this. About 3 weeks ago, I visited the blog of someone I would have grouped as a BWE blogger. She has posted on the previous site on numerous occasions. As I had not been to her blog for some time, I was going over some of her posts. There was one in which she was lamenting about the state of Chris Brown’s career, and how it was hypocritical of some stores to not stock his CD, yet sell those of say, other rappers. Some posters commented that Brown was not owed a career, and if he needed to eat, he could always find another line of work. After all, there is no rule that says everyone is entitled to make millions. The one part of her post which really rubbed me the wrong way was when she compared him to Tiger Woods. She said, in her own words I should add, that what Tiger Woods did (cheat on his wife) was worse than what Chris Brown did (beat up his girlfriend senseless, and leave her unconscious on the side of the road, at night time). Why she felt that Wood’s infidelity was worse than Brown almost committing murder, only she knows. I was too disgusted to even ask. Frankly, I suspect that she sees the victim in Woods’ case as a WW, and the victim in Brown’s case as a BW, and therefore, Elin Nordegeren deserves more sympathy than Rihanna. The fact that she is a BW does not mean that subconsciously, she doesn’t reason that way. She was so upset with Woods but felt that Brown deserved redemption and should be allowed to continue to make millions. I also think that another source of her strong negative reaction to Woods compared to Brown is that Tiger was with non-Black women. Brown, on the other hand, was with a ‘sista’. So you know, a BM can cheat, beat you and do all sorts, as long as he is with a BW, then its a’ight! I can tell you that I haven’t gone back to her blog since.

  28. JaliliMaster,

    As always, you’ve brought up some heavy-duty, reality-check nuances to the conversation. Thank you!

    You said, “What people like that (Omi) don’t get is that in any situation, if the women in a community are the ones who have to galvanize and ‘strategize’ for issues concerning that community, especially one as basic as safety and security, it means one thing…..that the ‘males’ in that community are REFUSING to do it!”

    BW like that are tightly focused on the 1 or 2 Black males that show up to community forums. NOT on the fact that 95+ % of those who lift a finger to respond to BC issues are BW. These women are the secular version of the legions of AA churchwomen who fixate on the roughly 5% of their fellow church members who are men.

    Somehow, these 2-3 BM in the pews—who are often elderly and joined the church AFTER enjoying a full life of sleeping around, much like the often-elderly BM fossilized loudmouths from the 1960s who attend community forums—are enough to “tide them over” in their delusion that BM are fighting alongside of them.

    You said, “One thing that very few realise about the civil rights complex is this: it is well known that women were the foot soldiers of the civil rights movement. Even today, the majority of donations coming into organisations like the NAACP are from AAW’s pockets. What does that tell you of the BM today AND the BM of yester years who were all too keen on being leaders in the civil rights movement but left the foot soldiering to the women?”

    It says that BM know they can count on most AA women to be mules, suckers and fools.

    You said, “I’m always shaken whenever I watch footage of, say, the Selma march. Because the footage is old, grainy and in black & white, it is easy for people to not see what was really going on. Try watching a few of these videos. You will notice that a high proportion of the Black folks being beaten by the police are women. You’ll see them with their batons and attack dogs, dragging these young women. I always wonder why those BM were all too comfortable with putting these women in harm’s way.”

    I’m happy you mentioned this. Those videos have always made my skin crawl since childhood. And for the exact reason that you’ve mentioned. In my childhood mind, it was inconceivable to me that so many of these (BM) “daddys” let these bad men do all these bad things to their wives and children. As a child I KNEW–without ever having to ask or being directly told—that my Dad would NEVER let anything like that happen to me, my brother or Mom.

    I KNEW there would a lot of hurt and dead “bad men” (along with their dogs) if somebody tried to do something like that to me, my brother or Mom.

    I couldn’t articulate this in words as a child, but I remember that it scared me to watch those videos and see so many “daddys” NOT protecting other kids and their Moms from snarling, biting dogs and “bad men.” I didn’t understand any of that. And I didn’t feel very good about Dr. King or the other men who stood around while all of that was being done to BW and children. Even though I knew that I was “supposed” to like them.

    You said, “I don’t believe that these men actually believed that these women would be safe), yet they still put them out front. And even if they did think so, are they any different from the suicide bombers in Palestine who (falsely) assume that surrounding their house with a line of Palestinian children would stop Israeli police from firing on/bombing their buildings? It has never stopped the Israeli police, yet these folks continue to do it. Their motivation is because they KNOW that these innocent, defenceless children will get killed, so they need that angle to be shown in the media, as it is not good for the Israeli army’s image. I have yet to figure out the AAM’s motives for doing the same with AAW.

    Oh, I believe Dr. King and his crew made the SAME callous and cynical calculation as the Palestinian activists who had boys throwing rocks at heavily-armed Israeli troops—knowing that Yitzhak Rabin had ordered the troops to “break the children’s bones.” It would create negative film of racist and brutal Israeli/US Southern enforcers.

    You said, “I realised what was going on during the conversation on the previous blog (and other blogs) during the ‘ark’ and ‘divestment’ discussions. The vast majority of the women who were opposed to it did so because they saw in their sons/nephews the VERY damaged behaviour we speak about. So they wanted to ‘divest’ (obviously, they did not understand what it really meant), but wanted to bring their damaged relatives with them. They wanted other BW who had left to accept their damaged BM relatives and allow them to be in their midst.”

    Again, I’m happy you said this out loud. I had come to the same conclusion. These types of BW want the benefits of divestment (safety, etc.) without having to pay the price for this safety (by leaving behind all their beloved DBRBM).

    You said, “From the article, it seems that these women are the types who REFUSE to flatly say out loud WHO it is that is bringing destruction to their community. Secondly, they are against bringing in any ‘outside’ help (in this case, the National Guard), despite the fact that all their ‘in-house’ efforts to date have failed…..miserably.”

    ITA.

    You said, “The vibe I get from these ‘I am Deborah’ women is the same I get from those who refuse to heed warnings till it is too late. If you bring them within your midst, you will pay for it….dearly.”(emphasis added)

    Exactly! These Sista Soldiers, and these male-identified BW are a liability and straight-up THREAT to the rest of us. We need to cut them loose and toss them overboard. ASAP!

    As far as the situation you mentioned with the other purported “BWE blogger”:

    I’ve had similar observations and experiences. But this is really about a larger problem—the fact that so many BW lack discernment. Just because something or somebody calls themself being about “BW’s empowerment” does not necessarily make it so.

    What you’re describing is a symptom of a larger problem—BW’s general lack of discernment. Too many BW blindly gobble up anything at all that claims to be in support of BW. Without examining it first.

    This isn’t something that I believe can be directly addressed. You and I can’t directly teach other BW how to exercise some discernment. It has to come from within by the use of properly functioning internal sensors. I’ve been trying to encourage the realizations that would stimulate more discernment. [With the previous conversations about gravitating toward “rotten food,” and so on.] I believe that the development of discernment is a long-term project for many women.

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

    • Karen says:

      What worries me most about the need to develop discernment is that time is no longer on our side. AA BW must develop critical thinking and the ability to assess and discern the various situations to be able to act now.

      The violence is increasing and ultimately measures will be taken which may very well result in there being physical barricades to prevent those that may want to leave to be able to leave.

      When this violence starts to spread to non-black areas, a crackdown will come.

  29. ***Warning: EXTREMELY LONG recap in response. LOL!***

    Karen,

    You said, “What worries me most about the need to develop discernment is that time is no longer on our side. AA BW must develop critical thinking and the ability to assess and discern the various situations to be able to act now.”

    You’re right. Time is NOT on the side of those AA women who are in “the Matrix.” But there’s nothing more that those of us who have already escaped can do about do about that. We’ve been yelling the alarm and warning these women all along. At this point, I’m more preoccupied with my Ark.

    Meanwhile, a number of the things that I warned folks about a while ago, are in progress (as predicted). Things like the planned shrinking of failing US cities—most of which have large AA populations. http://www.freep.com/article/20100429/NEWS05/4290435/Bing-staff-backs-off-talk-about-downsizing-Detroit

    At the previous blog, I warned folks about this during a post from August 2009. http://muslimbushido.blogspot.com/2009/08/geostrategy-nerd-federal-government-is.html As I mentioned at that time, “…the federal government is talking about razing sections of 50 economically depressed cities like Detroit, and letting nature reclaim the bulldozed districts! I would expect that most of these cities have substantial African-American populations. Whatever the outcome of this plan, it won’t be a pretty picture. The time to get out is NOW.”

    As I said then, “the odds of something like this working in a way that’s favorable to those Black folks who are left behind are slim to none. However this scheme works out for other people (such as White yuppies), the intention is NOT to help AAs have sustainable living environments. As usual, AAs are NOT on the government’s radar in any positive sense. We are undesirables to be managed and dealt with.”

    Regarding the recent statements from Detroit politicians, it really doesn’t matter much what any politician says to y’all Detroit residents. Whoever is in power there will have to do something about that failing city. And they’re NOT going to consult with y’all in advance. The same way they didn’t announce to you that they’ve been talking about these sorts of shrinkage schemes LONG before y’all got wind of it.

    So, for those audience members who weren’t there at the previous blog, let me recap some of my previously stated predictions that pertain to AA women and girls:

    (1)(a) The federal government is going to shrink, and pull the plug on failing cities (which tend to have large AA populations), and failing parts of cities (which tend to consist of AA residential neighborhoods).

    (1)(b) The US elites will switch to the Western European model—where the slums are in the isolated SUBURBS, while the center cities are kept nice as cultural jewels in the crown. For example, French slums are in the suburbs, while cities like Paris are kept nice.

    Here’s what I noticed has gradually happened in the Chicago area: They demolished many of the hellhole, all-Black housing projects. They steered the former inhabitants (with Section 8 vouchers in hand) into previously stable AA working class and middle class neighborhoods; thereby destroying them.

    They also encouraged the former housing project residents to move into some poor Southern suburbs. Well, the trick to that is that these south suburbs are like “Gilligan’s Island” in terms of isolation. The CTA doesn’t run all the way out to these places. And the local mass transportation in these places have very limited schedules.

    So these tranplants are more or less marooned compared to the public transportation mobility available in the city! I don’t think that was an accident.

    And let me point out the economic chain reaction with this sort of thing. Another thing that informs my negative reaction to this scheme is what it says about the federal government’s planning for these cities: It says that they DON’T expect these cities (that I’m sure have high percentages of AAs) to EVER recover economically!

    It also strongly communicates the message of “We don’t want to keep paying to service you Negroes!” The populations that are leaving these cities aren’t being killed in a war. They’re moving to other places that have viable economies.

    What does this plan for “50 cities that will never recover economically” mean for the legions of AAs whose livelihoods are tied to government sector jobs in these cities? Keep in mind that these government sector jobs depend upon local tax bases. What does this mean for the legions of AA postal workers, teachers, etc.?

    For example, do we expect that downsized AA government employees from Detroit will be able to find employment in thriving White suburbs of Detroit? Doesn’t it stand to reason that comparable government sector jobs in the suburbs neighboring these dying cities are already filled?

    Also, considering that AAs are, by and large, an urban people who don’t own farmland for self-sufficiency, this planned de-urbanization can have severe negative implications for us.

    (2) HBCUs will eventually become KNOWN as centers of HIV/AIDS infections—they will have a reputation similar to that of San Francisco during the 1980s and early 1990s. This process has begun. It was briefly in the news a few years back, and then nobody has talked about it since then. And certainly, nobody among the AA (mis)leadership class is preparing for this.

    I explained this during this post at the previous blog: http://muslimbushido.blogspot.com/2009/08/please-join-me-for-round-of-geostrategy.html

    I gave the following hints as I asked readers to reason along with me, “Here are 3 (somewhat) interlocking hints:”

    1-In what way can we say that Washington, D.C. (where Howard University is located) has replaced San Francisco?

    2-Historically Black colleges; and

    3-The gender imbalances at HBCUs. According to Understanding Gender at Public Historically Black Colleges and Universities: A Special Report of the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund, Inc., “Females are a majority (63%) of the total number of students enrolled at the 45 public Historically Black Colleges and Universities. . . ” pg. 10. http://www.thurgoodmarshallfund.org/downloads/2006_gender_study.pdf

    What’s the emerging, life-threatening problem at these schools that nobody’s really talking about? A problem that will only get worse, using our previous collective behavior as a roadmap?

    Answer: The unchecked spread of HIV/AIDs at HBCUs! Here’s the emerging equation:

    Gender imbalance that favors BM students at HBCUs (in terms of dating and sex)—

    + the resulting increased amounts of mansharing by BF students on these campuses

    + Washington, DC replacing San Francisco as an HIV/AIDs capital (so dating BM from off-campus in DC is also HIGH-risk given the epidemic conditions there)

    + the inherent homophobia of the AA community, particularly the Black South where the bulk of these HBCUs are located

    + the resulting increased closeted, “down low” behaviors by a percentage of BM students who might feel freer to self-identify as gay/bisexual if they weren’t at HBCUs

    + a spike in HIV infection rates among Black students that was briefly reported on in 2004

    + fewer “degrees of social separation” between AA college students/graduates and HIV+ jailbirds and drug addicts

    = HBCUs becoming HIV/AIDS magnets and centers!

    Here’s the beginning section of a news story from 2004 that folks can start with: http://tinyurl.com/29d3j3v

    “Black colleges seek to stem HIV cases

    Stepping up safe-sex education after spike in infections

    The Associated Press
    updated 2:23 p.m. CT, Mon., March. 22, 2004

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Many historically black colleges are stepping up safe-sex education in response to health researchers’’ finding of a spike in HIV infection rates among black students more than 20 years into the AIDS epidemic.

    Experts attribute the rise to a potent mixture of recklessness, homophobia, lack of information and denial —— and colleges are increasingly looking to honest talk by students like Jonathan Perry as part of the solution.

    ““It’’s affecting the future,”” says Perry, who is openly gay and HIV positive. He speaks at campus forums on the issue, including a ““Stomp Out HIV/STDs”” conference this weekend sponsored by North Carolina’’s 12 minority-serving schools and the state Division of Public Health.”

    This is why I urge every Black parent I know to NOT send their daughters to HBCUs.

    (3) “Peace wall”-type police barricades will be placed around violent Black residential areas. This is what Karen has been savvy enough to mention during earlier conversations at the previous blog. Yes, indeed, these walls WILL ultimately go up. And then “the Deborahs” and assorted other foolish BW—and their helpless children—will literally be trapped FOR REAL in close proximity to the violent DBRBM that they want to coddle.

    Not to mention that these DBRBM’s savage attacks on others, like the murders of Asians mentioned earlier will ENSURE that NOBODY else cares about law-abiding AAs who will be walled together with the violent DBR AAs.

    It’s all connected.

    Now, I’m willing to mention and discuss these sorts of things in the comment section here. But I’m not willing to write any more blog posts directly discussing these sorts of things. I already gave the direct warnings to all who would listen. I’m busy with my Ark and other pursuits right now.

    Karen, unfortunately, there will be MANY casualties among AA women and children. Because most AA women want to cling to the Matrix. Faith (blog host of Acts of Faith in Love & Life) talked about this recently. http://actsoffaithblog.com/pushback-from-the-partially-aware-but-still-indoctrinated-black-woman

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

      Dear Khadija,

      What is done is done. The warning has been issued. I have been on my ark for quite some time and continue to refine my preparations.

      My conscience is clear along with all of us who have raised the alarm.

      Time to leave these shores.

      • Dear Karen,

        You said, “Time to leave these shores.”

        ITA. At this blog, I’m only really talking to the segment of AA women who will survive and thrive. The “Deborahs,” the Sista Soldiers, the male-identified BW, and the rest are dead women walking—their bodies just haven’t fallen over. Yet.

        Meanwhile, my Ark preparations continue. I’ve got color swatches to look at for choosing the interior decor’s color palette. And crates of sparkling apple cider (among other things) that need to be stockpiled. LOL!

      WASHINGTON — White flight? In a reversal, America’s suburbs are now more likely to be home to minorities, the poor and a rapidly growing older population as many younger, educated whites move to cities for jobs and shorter commutes.

      An analysis of 2000-2008 census data by the Brookings Institution highlights the demographic “tipping points” seen in the past decade and the looming problems in the 100 largest metropolitan areas, which represent two-thirds of the U.S. population.

      The findings could offer an important road map as political parties, including the tea party movement, seek to win support in suburban battlegrounds in the fall elections and beyond. In 2008, Barack Obama carried a substantial share of the suburbs, partly with the help of minorities and immigrants.

      The analysis being released Sunday provides the freshest detail on the nation’s growing race and age divide, which is now feeding tensions in Arizona over its new immigration law.

        I read this article also. And living outside of DC, I can attest to what LaJane Galt said about the demographic shift already underway in this area. It is way more expensive to live in the nice parts of DC than in any of the nicest surrounding suburbs in MD or VA. The subway line serving Montgomery County is long and circuitous for residents in the more southern and less wealthy towns. It’s rapidly falling apart with no money for repairs and there have been a number of fatal accidents. Most of the white residents in these areas have cars so they are not the ones stranded when the Red Line is out of service. They also have the means to relocate once the area becomes totally isolated.

        I was surprised at the number of out of state white grad students I met who decided to move into the city and stay there after school. Every so often I hear grumblings about the gentrification currently going on in DC and how poor black residents are being pushed out.

        Last year I saw a news story about a group of white artists who were creating an artists’ community in the middle of the Detroit ghetto by buying and renovating some of the dirt cheap houses there. Here is an article http://detnews.com/article/20090313/LIFESTYLE/903130306/Detroit-s-hard-edge—-and-dirt-cheap-real-estate—-attract-artists-from-around-the-world
        and a video http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/36601203#36601203 about them.

        • LaJane Galt says:

          Funny how you mentioned that. Patti Smith considers Detroit the new place to be.

        • KM says:

          It’s happening here in Philly too! And, this fall, I’ll be moving in an area with the white artists/hipsters too because despite all of their issues, there is protection in living in a majority white area. Even if I”m living in a closet to be there.

      • MissASP says:

        I saw this article too! Any bw with common sense will go with them. Stay out of black residential areas. I’ve been raised in the suburbs all my life and get called “oreo” for it! Call me that if you want, at least I live in a safe area and have safe friends!

    “Regarding domestic violence, I’ll say this. About 3 weeks ago, I visited the blog of someone I would have grouped as a BWE blogger. She has posted on the previous site on numerous occasions. As I had not been to her blog for some time, I was going over some of her posts. There was one in which she was lamenting about the state of Chris Brown’s career, and how it was hypocritical of some stores to not stock his CD, yet sell those of say, other rappers. Some posters commented that Brown was not owed a career, and if he needed to eat, he could always find another line of work. After all, there is no rule that says everyone is entitled to make millions. The one part of her post which really rubbed me the wrong way was when she compared him to Tiger Woods. She said, in her own words I should add, that what Tiger Woods did (cheat on his wife) was worse than what Chris Brown did (beat up his girlfriend senseless, and leave her unconscious on the side of the road, at night time). Why she felt that Wood’s infidelity was worse than Brown almost committing murder, only she knows. I was too disgusted to even ask.”

    JaliliMaster, I do believe I know of the site that you speak of… So sad!!! I don’t go there often myself.

    I must add that this seems to be such a common thought pattern among AAW. I didn’t realize it until a few months ago when I went to lunch with one of the only family members that I socialize with on the regular (most I have cut off for various reasons). This woman is very dear to me, but to hear her speak of the Chris Brown situation shook me to my core. From the way she speaks, she still feels that somehow this is Rihanna’s fault too. She does not think that Rihanna did enough to combat the negative image in which the news portrayed Chris. I pointed out to her that Rihanna never once came out to defend herself against all of the accusations that people threw around saying that somehow Rihanna is to blame. If I recall Rihanna did not speak of the situation for at least 8 months.

    I couldn’t figure out how someone who had been in a domestic violence marriage for years could possibly think this, but then I remembered that she didn’t leave her marriage because of the domestic violence, she left because of her husband’s affair.

    It just seems to me that these women don’t take domestic violence (which can lead to maiming and death) at all serious – but become completely indignant with the thought of the same partner that beats them having an affair. I contrast this with my co-worker who one day out of the blue stated that she would prefer to have a man cheat on her than a man that beats her.

    I guess for them “the lesser of two evils” principle applies. I still don’t understand how these women get to the point where it’s an either/or thought process with these subjects. If I believed that these were my only choices I would completely stop dating.

    Wow this is so true and powerful. Many bw will drown in their ignorance and stupidity. They better wake up before it is too late. They better look to the East and West for salvation and peace of mind.

    Yeah I remember a few years ago Ebony magazine did a expose on SBW not dating at HBCUs. They found out that many young women were dating the same young men on campus. Some were sharing men openly. Also they found out that many of these women were dating each other!Yes you read it right. These desperate sbw were in temporary lesbian relationships until a sbm was available. I know it is true because my distant cousin was doing it at a HBCU here in GA. These HBCUs are a breeding ground,cesspool for not only HIV ,but lesbianism too. I have nothing against them , but if a ybf is not a lesbian then why start dating one? this is how low we have become as women. We have sunk to a level of disparity. I am so thankful that I woke up 2 years ago and found you ,Evia, and others. You don’t know how sick and perverted our bc is until you have seen the worse of the worse. I see them everyday at work masquerading as if they are there to really get an education when they are just sucking the system dry. It is awful how they disrespect teachers and administrators. I can’t wait to leave. I am trying to hang on if I could walk I would tomorrow. We hear you loud and clear Some of us are still trying to work and save to escape.

    • MissASP says:

      WOW, couldn’t you transfer to a non-HBCU. I’m going off to college next year and HBCU’s were NEVER on my list of possible colleges. Most bp don’t like bgs like me lol!

  32. Sistrunkqueen,

    You said, “Yeah I remember a few years ago Ebony magazine did a expose on SBW not dating at HBCUs. They found out that many young women were dating the same young men on campus.

    {a moment of stunned silence in response}

    It’s one thing if these young women are having lesbian relationships out of their own inclinations or sense of curiousity (exploring their own sexuality). As far as I’m concerned, that’s fine and within the range of normal behavior if those are their motives. In other words, if they’re doing that because that’s what they actually WANT to do.

    It’s something totally ELSE if they are having lesbian relationships because they are clinging to “nuthin’ but a BM” indoctrination even when it has artificially reproduced a prison-like situation where—according to this “nuthin’ but a BM” madness—only other women are available for sex. Meanwhile, these young woman are NOT living in a prison—and there are other, non-Black men available for dating and sex. THIS is utterly insane! {shaking my head}

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

    • LaJane Galt says:

      A few years ago, I used to read a [now defunct] blog written by a black lesbian. She described the heartbreak and unfairness of straight women who were using lesbians for physical affection. She was not discussing bisexual women, or women who were necessarily exploring their sexuality. They really were in it until some dude came along.

      So very cruel and pathetic.

    They have no idea how STUPID they look and sound.

    Nurturing, protecting, etc… They don’t realize that’s the problem. They’ve been nurturing and protecting these monsters all along and now these DBRBM are biting the hands that have fed them all along.

    And these coddlers and enablers still don’t have a clue.

    They should be embarrassed but don’t have the sense to be.

    “Taking their rightful places.” LOL and a big WTH. As MEN? Because it’s a MAN’S rightful place to be the protector of his community. A protector of vulnerable women and children.

    NOT women. SMH These sister solider’s are looking seriously shemale to the public at large.

    And FOOLISH and insane. Outsiders are really beginning to wonder (if and when they wonder at all) what’s wrong with some AA BW.

    Some SILLY misguided and delusional BW marching with some signs is supposed to stop crime?

    SMH

    The BEST thing to do is for those BW OUTSIDE the Matrix/asylum to stay as far away from these loonies as possible and steer their Arks FAR away from these Hell pits. Never looking back.

    And these Deborah women don’t realize how ODD this is and how ODD it will appear to the public at large?

    And they’re calling this strange abnormality (where women are expected and actually appear to be looking forward to doing a man’s job of protecting – which they can’t – in ADDITION to being mother AND father to poverty stricken and disadvantaged OOW children) a COMMUNITY?

    SMH

    And did ya’ll notice there was a sum total of TWO older black males shown in that video? One outside marching and another one inside the “meeting”?

    And they may have been the same man.

    SMH These fools look lUDICROUS. All of them.

    On a lighter note, I certainly hope EVERYONE enjoyed this Sunday.

    Count you’re blessings everyone. I count mine everyday.

  34. Felicia,

    From what I can tell from doing a Google news search, that “I am Deborah” madness has only been covered by 2 local news entities: the Chicago Defender (a local Black paper) and WGN (is affiliated with the Chicago Tribune newspaper and controls 2 local tv stations, one on cable). Thank God for small favors. This madness is NOT a good look for AA BW. As you said, “SMH These sister solider’s are looking seriously shemale to the public at large.”

    You said, “And did ya’ll notice there was a sum total of TWO older black males shown in that video? One outside marching and another one inside the “meeting”? And they may have been the same man.”

    The ONE BM inside the meeting might have been a local (minor) politican or wanna-be activist—I didn’t catch his face. I did notice one of the books prominently displayed on the table at the meeting had “Black Male” in the title.

    And yes, I found more confirmation that these Deborah movement women don’t want adequate security. From a 4/29/10 entry on the WGN.com website: http://www.wgntv.com/news/wgntv-women-form-anticrime-movement-apr29,0,2601207.story

    “CHICAGO – Two Lawmakers recently called for a deployment of National Guard troops to protect Chicago’s streets.

    Now, hundreds of Chicago women are responding with their own initiative.

    The “I Am Deborah Movement” was created in response to tackle youth violence in Chicago. These women come from diverse backgrounds, including mothers and women of sororities and churches across Chicago.

    The group will take on actions to help curb violence in Chicago including safety patrols, mentoring, and teaching parenting skills. The group says it’s aim is to “take control of their communities, to start to patrol streets of Chicago, help improve parenting skills of Young Mothers and mentor wayward youth.”

    “I Am Deborah Movement” will also arrange support groups for men and demonstrations to prevent violence.

    Group leaders tell WGNtv it’s time for women to take the lead in the fight against street crime.

    “The Deborah movement speaks to that, we come together and we solve our own problems.” said participant Afrika Porter-Ollarvia, “These are our children. So, who’s going to be more passionate, more concerned?”

    Women of the”I Am Deborah Movement” say community involvement is key, and calling in the national guard would be a mistake.

    “We don’t need the National Guard,” said Porter-Ollarvia, “…let us handle our situations, our community and our conditions.”

    The group is part of the Black Star Project, a community group that aims to improve the lives of Black and Latino Chicagoans. [Khadija speaking here: Good God, yet another instance of confused AAs worrying about Latinos—who are NOT worrying about us! When will these one-sided, false “coalitions” stop?!]

    Group Activist Nefra Burlock, said the group is modeled after the biblical prophetess, Deborah.

    “She was an oracle to the people. She was an adviser. She would advise them at times of war. It had come to a point where the streets were wreaking havoc and it wasn’t even safe to travel on the highway. And we look at that as the situation in Chicago.”

    “I Am Deborah Movement” welcomes men who are willing to support their cause and efforts. Right now, the group is planning an event for Mother’s Day on Sunday May 8, 2010. According to the Black Star Movement, that anti-violence event will be modeled after the works of the prophet Deborah.

    The “I Am Deborah Movement” meets at The Black Star Project location. That’s at 3509 S. King Drive, Suite B.”(emphasis added)
    *******************************************

    I don’t know how closely these “I am Deborah” nuts are affiliated with a local Black activist group called The Black Star Project. [Apparently named after Marcus Garvey’s failed/sabotaged initiative to have a line of Black-owned steamships. See this link: http://tinyurl.com/2agpahw%5D

    Let me note that the Black Star Project didn’t previously have a reputation of being insane. Or if they’ve been crazy all along, I didn’t know they were crazy before. Up to now, what they’ve been talking about has usually centered around education issues and issues about the local public schools. http://www.blackstarproject.org/

    From their website: “Founded in 1996 by Phillip Jackson, The Black Star Project is committed to improving the quality of life in Black and Latino communities of Chicago and nationwide by eliminating the racial academic achievement gap. Our mission is to provide educational services that help pre-school through college students succeed academically and become knowledgeable and productive citizens with the support of their parents, families, schools and communities.”

    {more of this “Black & Latino” mess—long sigh} The founder, Phillip Jackson, has spent a lot of time over the years on local Black talk radio talking about education issues. {sigh}

    Felicia, you said, “The BEST thing to do is for those BW OUTSIDE the Matrix/asylum to stay as far away from these loonies as possible and steer their Arks FAR away from these Hell pits. Never looking back.”

    That’s the bottom line with all of this.

      Yep, their sons/babydaddies/bed partners would be the first ones to go in a NG sweep.

      Young Mothers what’s missing here?

      Black and Latino Chicagoans I speak Spanish and have NEVER heard Latinos ever reference us in their efforts. If they did, they would have spoken in English. Subconsciously, some of us have realized that the powers that be no longer have any guilt and have found a new pet project (see AZ).

  35. TJ,

    You said, “I’ve been a reader of your blog for some time now, and I truly appreciate the information and clear analysis you provide. I recently read an Associated Press article that supports your first prediction above, regarding the demographic shifts that are happening in cities and suburbs right now…”

    Thank you for your kind words about the blog; I truly appreciate it.

    The interesting thing about all of this is that it’s doom, gloom and destruction primarily for the deluded AA BW who continue clinging to the old behavior patterns of: (1) remaining behind in Black residential areas; (2) depending upon ONE “good job;” and (3) and holding out for “nuthin’ but a BM.”

    Meanwhile, the rest of us—the sojourners—will most likely be just fine! Because there are several HUGE advantages for those of us who have moved on from (or never bought into) that mindset. The social, marriage and business opportunities in the US are so very much more fluid now than they’ve been before. Things were VERY different even just 25 years ago.

    In addition to dating (mostly) BM, I dated young men across various racial categories when I was in college. At that time, much fewer WM or AM were willing to publicly date BW—at least in the Midwest (including Chicago). The new business opportunities created by the internet did not exist at that time. The opportunities to self-publish books and self-produce video and music made available by personal computers did not exist the way they do now.

    I’m not saying that things were terrible then. Not at all. {chuckling} I’m saying that right now there are open doors and open windows that didn’t exist just 2.5 decades ago. Now is the time to take advantage of these opportunities. They might not last forever.

    And there are still some generalized, mass problems looming on the horizon that could effect everybody on the planet (catastrophic weather change, ongoing economic collapse, water shortages, peak oil, the mass bee die-off that could have catastrophic impact on the human food chain, and so on).

    Whatever the future holds for those people who are part of the mainstream of this society (meaning everybody else EXCEPT AAs who are settling into permanent, soon-to-be-completely-ignored, underclass status in this country), there are currently WIDE-OPEN opportunities to live well. There were many people who still made a lot of money—and lived well—even during the previous Great Depression!

    Those of us who are part of this particular blog community can also live well no matter what the future holds! It’s a matter of preparation and taking advantage of ALL available opportunities.

    I would strongly urge readers to read The Wisdom of Wallace D. Wattles. http://tinyurl.com/292e7mo This is the author I discussed during the Is Opportunity Monopolized? post. I believe it’s well worth the time to read his books.

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

  36. ***Note to Readers***

    In making this new site the kind of project that’s sustainable for me over the long-run, I’ve had to streamline how I handle certain things. The comments section is one of them. What this means is that I’ll give substantive responses to those folks who enter the conversations early (as I did across the board at the previous blog).

    After each post is a couple of days old, I’ll generally continue to publish new comments from readers. (That meet the commenting guidelines as set forth at the previous blog—those who are unfamiliar can read the comment “box” at the previous blog.)

    But, after a each post is a couple of days old, I generally WON’T continue responding to new comments.

    In other words, I’ll continue to publish comments to this post, but I’m not going to reply to any more comments in this thread. FYI. Please feel free to talk among yourselves!

    Peace, blessings and solidarity.

    I can bet that majority of these women are single mothers of OOW children, hence the reason why they are marching in the first place as opposed to their (non-existent) husbands. These are the very women who populate our streets with fatherless thugs, yet they want to give parenting lessons. I’d laugh if it wasn’t so sad and pathetic!
    ________________________________
    “I Am Deborah Movement” will also arrange support groups for men and demonstrations to prevent violence.

    Will arrange support groups for men? Support for what exactly? So for these men to even turn up to merely take part in a flimsy ‘demonstration’, they need these women to organise it. AA men are all coming across as a truly pathetic bunch! What exactly is it going to take for them to stand up and do the right thing. For all my annoyance at these women, the thought is still in the back of my head…….”even if they can’t do it because it is right, at least do the right thing out of sheer embarrassment”. I have NEVER, and I mean NEVER once ever come across AA men trying to improve anything in the bc without them wanting AA women to make some sort of big sacrifice on their behalf. I don’t see other BM doing this nonsense, not the Black Caribbean or Black African men. It is as if AA men want to get people’s respect without having to earn it. The fact is that try as hard as you like, if you keep on treating the women around you this way, no man is going to respect you. Compare these women’s reaction to that of Jewish women or Asian women in San Francisco. When they were worried about violence around them, what did they do? Nothing. Why? The men in their communities took care of it. If any AA woman is in this sort of situation and has the common sense to know it’s not right, she should get out. YOU ARE NOT IN RWANDA. YOU ARE NOT IN DR CONGO! This is ridiculous. It is AA men’s JOB and DUTY to protect their communities. It has never been made a matter of choice. It is just what men do. For those women who want to continue being mules….let them. Save yourself!

    This confirms my previous comments. As the woman said….these are “our children”. Most of the teen males who kill and most of the teen males who are killed on the streets are fatherless males. She doesn’t want the National Guard because as she said, these are “their children” that the troops will be firing on. If she was able to make the distinction between her children and the gangbangers, she’s see that hard measures are necessary. The fact that she doesn’t seem too differentiate between the two says a lot!

    But as long as they have what looks like a sick fetish to help “save” and protect these damaged beyond repair black males who are their sons, grandsons, cousins, boyfriends, even strangers (seriously SMH), they are LOST. Which means most are lost – and will continue to be victimized ALONE – because most still suffer from this affliction that I do not understand.

    My response:
    I have never, ever understood the reactionary way in which black women come to the defense of negro males. It never ceases to amaze me how the mules will so very quickly jump in front of the train (literally and figuratively) for these negroes and yet, these same “women” wouldn’t even spit on another black woman if she happened to be on fire. IMO, it’s self loathing at it’s very worst.
