This is not surprising at all . What's worse is that White America has NO justification to hate Blacks or anyone else. They've had every advantage, access and opportunity over Blacks for centuries yet they still blame Blacks and others for their failures.
When Blacks speak of past injustices we're accused of playing the "race card and being a Victim. Yes we are victims thanks to all White male government the majority of Whites elected into Congress and POTUS who created and enforced the most racist,oppressi­ve laws known to mankind. To this day White America has never been held accountable for the crimes she knowingly committed against her own Black citizens who stood beside this country and people in hope of being accepted and treated equally.
My comment is not an indictment of All White folks because many of them lost their families, friends,jobs and lives standing up for what is right and with Blacks in our quest for equality,unfort­unately the majority of White folks are not like them.They have my gratitude and respect.
Those who cry about so-called Blacks are racist against White folks I will quote Sista Souljah " We are the HATE that HATE produced". Did folks actually believed they would be embraced after centuries of oppressing and willingly disenfranchisin­g one group of citizens.

I used this word just yesterday...crying laughing at a friends joke and I said, "D___ you're retarded"
The difference between Ann and I: She has followers of white racist that gets off disrespecting the POTUS and other Black People. Also has Black friends that share her agenda and she can proudly say, "I have Black friends"
Me...I have a following of SistahZ and BruthaZ that have a mutual understanding of the word from back in the 70's/80's along with "spastic" as to how and when to use the word.
The Title of President is to be respected, however, we see the person holding it is not - and that depends on race.

Whites stole South Africa, created Apartheid, robbed her of her riches and jailed and killed thousands of Africans, the most famous one jailed being Nelson Mandela. Now he along with many whites are complaining about the Africans taking back their farm land which most still have not received due to all the red tape and yes, they are taking it by force if the whites won't give it back(which btw, are the whites who are threatening to shoot any African that tries to move them off the property which was never theirs to begin with, not the whites that comply). But he calls us a bunch of whining babies. Pay back is something else.

keep believing that lie . 90 percent of what you so called invented was most likely ,stolen. we know this to be true and so does real history. the middle east knows this, this is why they detest the lot of you.
such a shame. keep up the lie,spread the lie until it becomes truth. go read a book that hasnt been sanctioned by public education.all great nations will fall if its people are not rooted in truth.


My 3 Issues RE Alice Walker...

1} 'The Color Purple' indicates that Ms Walker seemingly has major 'issues' w [IE: a low opinion of] nearly ALL Black Men [except of course Obama].
2} Her long term 'curious' relationship w MS Gloria Steinem [MS Steinem is Walker's daughter's god-mother- even though ironically its been said MS Steinem does not believe in God]. Of course MS Steinem's MS Magazine helped hype Walker's 'The Color Purple' along w another book by a young Black woman that attacked Black men- especially Black Radicals &/or Nationalists. - PS: MS Steinem got into a 'curious' spat w Melissa Harris-Perry in 2008 RE: Obama vs Billary.
3} That Ms Walker has dis-avowed her own daughter, Rebekka, after Rebekka at age 39 - 40 decided she wanted to be a mother & stay w her son's father to help raise him. IMO this, along w point-1, is a bit much to swallow. [PS: The issue can't be that Rebekka's son's father is perhaps white {I don't know what his back-ground is} because Rebekka's own father is white & Jewish.]


Note by Me: A lot of Christians do understand the Israel/Palestine situation, but they aren't shown that much on television.

Yeah, Walker has nothing to

Yeah, Walker has nothing to gain from calling out Obomber. And, she's old and maybe "too tired" to fight, yada, yada. You are so right about her being another co-opted Negro. But those are poor excuses especially for someone who experienced Jim Crow and the civil rights struggle.
I'm glad the major players in the civil rights movement such as MLK didn't worry about losing or gaining something and were not too old and tired to fight. I'm sure there were some senior citizens who were knee deep in the struggle. From what I see of the Walker/Jesse/CBC 60s hangers-on, MLK and company did most of the work and had all of the cajones. The hangers-on just brought up the rear and took the credit along with advantage of every benefit MLK and company's blood/sweat/tears provided.
Way back when, your life was in real danger of being lost. Today, not so much, if at all, and these jokers are too chickens___  to demand face time to get in the face of their black president, much less raise a ruckus over a laundry lists of issues that need to be addressed, or even raise more than a bit of stern criticism towards King Barry. If MLK and those preceeding him considered what they had to gain and lose, we'd still be sitting at the back of the bus today.
As for the black Bible toters making the great pilgrimage to Jerusalem, most of the crowd doesn't have a clue about what's going on between Israel and Palestine - and don't care. They may have heard something on TV but do not pay attention to any of it. Even if they paid attention, they'd be just as ignorant as they are now since the media provides govt propaganda not the truth. If it ain't on TV or in the Bible, they don't know, don't believe you if you try to enlightened them, and just don't care.

We're screwed!!! The Imperial Lodge is about to haze us

This would be more appropriately posted under that picture of Obama wearing the King's Crown, check out this wild "New World Order," "Obama Deception" s___ from Glenn Greenwald.
This dude is absolutely incredible, unbelievable, "Hope and Change" my a__, if there ever was a Manchurian Candidate it's this President. It makes me go back to what he said in 08 while campaigning for President, it should have been a clarion call but stupid m***f____ were to caught up in the Melissa Perry symbolic b____:
"The Surge has Succeeded Beyond Our Wildest Dreams."
No s___. And you Mr. President have succeeded in instituting full blown facist, corptocracy beyond MY(our) wildest dreams.
It's OVER folks, we all just f___ around on the margins, its game, set, match to Obama and the New World Order.
The only thing that will change the current Emperors sitting in the WH is the full and complete collapse of the United States and Western allies. But even then don't expect them go down without a fight. "Renewable Energy?" You gone get renewable energy because all of our asses will be walking around glowing like a light bulb when full-scale nuclear war occurs.
Vote? For what, to legitimize the current and future dictators aka U.S. Presidents?
Obama Moves to Make the 'War on Terror' Permanent
Complete with a newly coined, creepy Orwellian euphemism – 'disposition matrix' – the administration institutionalizes the most extremist powers a government can claim
The Washington Post has a crucial and disturbing story this morning by Greg Miller about the concerted efforts by the Obama administration to fully institutionalize – to make officially permanent – the most extremist powers it has exercised in the name of the war on terror.
Based on interviews with "current and former officials from the White House and the Pentagon, as well as intelligence and counterterrorism agencies", Miller reports that as "the United States' conventional wars are winding down", the Obama administration "expects to continue adding names to kill or capture lists for years" (the "capture" part of that list is little more than symbolic, as the US focus is overwhelmingly on the "kill" part). Specifically, "among senior Obama administration officials, there is broad consensus that such operations are likely to be extended at least another decade." As Miller puts it: "That timeline suggests that the United States has reached only the midpoint of what was once known as the global war on terrorism."
In pursuit of this goal, "White House counterterrorism adviser John O Brennan is seeking to codify the administration's approach to generating capture/kill lists, part of a broader effort to guide future administrations through the counterterrorism processes that Obama has embraced." All of this, writes Miller, demonstrates "the extent to which Obama has institutionalized the highly classified practice of targeted killing, transforming ad-hoc elements into a counterterrorism infrastructure capable of sustaining a seemingly permanent war."
"Targeted killing is now so routine that the Obama administration has spent much of the past year codifying and streamlining the processes that sustain it."
The Post article cites numerous recent developments reflecting this Obama effort, including the fact that "CIA Director David H Petraeus is pushing for an expansion of the agency's fleet of armed drones", which "reflects the agency's transformation into a paramilitary force, and makes clear that it does not intend to dismantle its drone program and return to its pre-September 11 focus on gathering intelligence." The article also describes rapid expansion of commando operations by the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and, perhaps most disturbingly, the creation of a permanent bureaucratic infrastructure to allow the president to assassinate at will:
"JSOC also has established a secret targeting center across the Potomac River from Washington, current and former U.S. officials said. The elite command's targeting cells have traditionally been located near the front lines of its missions, including in Iraq and Afghanistan. But JSOC created a 'national capital region' task force that is a 15-minute commute from the White House so it could be more directly involved in deliberations about al-Qaeda lists."
The creepiest aspect of this development is the christening of a new Orwellian euphemism for due-process-free presidential assassinations: "disposition matrix". Writes Miller:
"Over the past two years, the Obama administration has been secretly developing a new blueprint for pursuing terrorists, a next-generation targeting list called the 'disposition matrix'.
"The matrix contains the names of terrorism suspects arrayed against an accounting of the resources being marshaled to track them down, including sealed indictments and clandestine operations. US officials said the database is designed to go beyond existing kill lists, mapping plans for the 'disposition' of suspects beyond the reach of American drones."
The "disposition matrix" has been developed and will be overseen by the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). One of its purposes is "to augment" the "separate but overlapping kill lists" maintained by the CIA and the Pentagon: to serve, in other words, as the centralized clearinghouse for determining who will be executed without due process based upon how one fits into the executive branch's "matrix". As Miller describes it, it is "a single, continually evolving database" which includes "biographies, locations, known associates and affiliated organizations" as well as "strategies for taking targets down, including extradition requests, capture operations and drone patrols". This analytical system that determines people's "disposition" will undoubtedly be kept completely secret; Marcy Wheeler sardonically said that she was "looking forward to the government's arguments explaining why it won't release the disposition matrix to ACLU under FOIA".
This was all motivated by Obama's refusal to arrest or detain terrorist suspects, and his resulting commitment simply to killing them at will (his will). Miller quotes "a former US counterterrorism official involved in developing the matrix" as explaining the impetus behind the program this way: "We had a disposition problem."
The central role played by the NCTC in determining who should be killed – "It is the keeper of the criteria," says one official to the Post – is, by itself, rather odious. As Kade Crockford of the ACLU of Massachusetts noted in response to this story, the ACLU has long warned that the real purpose of the NCTC – despite its nominal focus on terrorism - is the "massive, secretive data collection and mining of trillions of points of data about most people in the United States".

Roland surely could have done better than this . Sadly many of us allow them to say to us are you "using the race card" as if that allows them to end the conversation on race. You are a mental slave if you do. Ask them what is the race card? They say it but cannot explain it. Here is my definition The “race card” was created by whites. It was created to exempt a segment of white America from acknowledging and explaining the legacy of racism in this country. It’s a tactic utilized to dilute the legitimacy claims of race. Hence, a segment of whites embrace most claims of race lack substance. They assert African-Americans cry race in efforts of not staking their claim, implying they’d rather embrace mediocrity. Whites have defined its meaning through their actions. It’s a tool utilized to continue racism and not diminish it; as way to keep from facing the past; as a way of controlling the future. Study history. Read. Read Read .
