 I could care less if he looks like Obama.  Black folks should be ticked because satan is portrayed as a black entity.  I don't appreciate that at all.


 That is a tough one. Either spend your whole life fighting for what you are owed, and perhaps getting it several generations in the future, or go someplace where you can enjoy life now, and be treated as a human for a change.

Intelligent and a decent piece of writing. Seems you're all so powerful grandfather's legacy is still haunting the powers which be from his grave. Be ready and equipped. This stink ain't going away anytime quick. Malcolm X was a great man and it's a shame we haven't anybody like him to unite the mass Black community world wide..

Looks like COINTELPRO is still up and running.  Which would explain why they still will not make those records public.  Those of you that still question why we as a people are in the condition that we are in need to look no further than our elected public officials that appoint certain people to positions of power and then look the other way when things like this happen.  People such as myself always push for Black unity, but the truth is that there has always been, and always will be a force within the USA that will never allow black people to truly be organized and work together for the good of ourselves.  And there will always be those among us that would rather  continue eating the scraps dropped from the oppressors table instead of doing something for ourselves.

When Essence removed the tag line: "For Today's BLACK Woman" we all knew it was all over!


Once the national black community was full of revolutionaries. I've even met a few of the 1960s revolutionaries in the middle or old age: Angela Y. Davis, Huey P. Newton, Stokely Carmichael, Kathleen Cleaver & even CLR James.
These were/are men and women devoted to bring about a fundamental change in the sociel order, and in our order of values.
Freedom, self-determination, the transcendence of racism and economic exploitation. And, in Fanon's words, the settting "afoot of the New Man."
What they seek is as much a moral and spiritual revolution as an economic and political one.
In the 1960s, many gave their lives for the liberation of our people, black people, and indeed oppressed people throughout the land and throughout the world.
Even thier idea of freedom was different, as in no. 1 of the Ten Point Prgoram of the Black Panther Party: "We want FREEDOM. We want the power to determine the destiny of our Black community."
Community was at the heart of the very conception of freedom. And then you had Dr. King with his idea of Beloved Community.

Do we have it in us now to be revolutionaries? Or are we totally immersed and bemused by the toxic culture of consumerism and narcissism?
Have we a vision of a better life transcending the Established order?

Fred Hampton was not an armchair revolutionary. The corporate police state doesn't usually bother to take out arm chair revolutionaries. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and others were not armchair revolutionaries.
Revolution involves a process of radical social transformation, and a tremendous degree of commitment.
Do we have such people today?



Revolution to end the tyranny of the coporate racist state, and the racist capitalist order of society.
Revolutions are always from within and without; involving a radical transformation of the social order(its institutions, for examples) and a radical transformation of values and interhuman relations.
And while you obviously don't know this, you bemused millions of WHITE SERFS need a revolution nearly as badly as do we Blacks.
But the main difference between we Blacks and yourselves, is that most of us know we're not free, while you believe you are.



Yes there are many the problem is their voices are being drowned out by those puppets. I would suggest checking out Dr
Jeffries, Dr Umar Johnson, Dr. Cresling, Dr. Henrik Clarke there are others, but this is a great start



Why now allow the race baiters,(I'm not going to call them a "racist",debunk this?

" Researchers show vitamin D supplementation may help African-Americans lower blood pressure

High blood pressure, a risk factor for heart attacks, heart failure and stroke, is 40 percent more common in African-Americans than in other American ethnic groups. In a new study from Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH), along with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital, researchers show that vitamin D supplementation may help African-Americans lower their blood pressure. The study publishes online in the March 13, 2013 edition of the American Heart Association journal Hypertension.

"This study may explain and help treat an important public health disparity," said the study's lead author, John Forman, MD, a physician in the Renal Division and Kidney Clinical Research Institute at BWH. "More research is needed, but these data may indicate that vitamin D supplementation lowers blood pressure in African-Americans. "

Start debunking.

i agree 100%!


crazychris Reply:

no whites need somebody to emulate they need blacks to make the music or come up with styles and trends then they send in a token white who learn then starts off so called urban but then they get to the point where that white artist does’nt need to be around blacks anymore.
everlast was the token in ice t’s rhyme syndicate then he went from house of pain still hip hop from being solo to singing country.
same thing with kid rock, mark walberg, elvis who started out in black churces.
fred durst, britney, christina, they all don’t really need to be the token for black music anmymore they made they’re millions.
while the black artists expand as well but they’re forgotten and tossed back to the streets when they go broke.


Why is there a dte energy billboard at the top of the page?

Anyway. I think they want to kill off or leave a considerable amount of the population for dead.
There's no other plausible explanation for what's happening if you consider the fact that the banks don't pay any sales tax on its financial transactions/turnover.
The private "Federal" Reserve prints billion's every month, hundreds of times greater than the deficit of Detroit. This money is handed out to the banks and used to fuel new speculative bubbles.
You can't start a 401K because they might snatch that (plus they're using your retirement for attacks on places like Detroit). You can't put your money in the bank because they're gonna snatch that. And you can't keep your money in the house because they wanna take your guns. We pay into Social Security, Medicare, and other retirement programs and they wanna take that.
We can't win.
Glen is right, lawsuits ain't cuttin it. We can't trust the Unions and old civil rights groups. Time to start pushing the idea of a General strike.



I understand where she is coming from (as women of every color ought to be treated with respect), but didn't we as blacks tried this decades ago. Decades ago, we did everything we can to find some acceptance from mainstream Western society via assimilation and post racial rhetoric. What is the fruit of that? That fruit has been rotten to the core. So, we as black human beings of both genders should be concerned about building up our own culture and of our own way of thinking. White supremacy has allowed a huge amount of false beauty standards and so forth in the world. White women are highly represented in the fashion world and in magazines globally, but it is rare for a black woman to be on a cover of other prominent, international magazines. Some of our people want to placate a vicious society when the Jews, Hispanics, white ethnic groups, Indians, and others don't care what others think about them (they just create their own infrastructure and keep it moving. They could care less about acceptance from white supremacy. They want Power). I do not feel like we should hate non blacks since that is wasted energy. More energy should be made in promoting black African interests instead.

I feel if Jada wants to see more white girl on our black magazine she has money maybe she should start with that, may that can be her way of giving back(white) I haven't seen a black girl on "Marie Clare" just saying it has taken black over 50 years to get a foot in the white door. Had it not been for Mr. Johnson we'd still be struggling to get recognized .


I did some research on this series. Many of the advisors are from the same prosperity gospel movement that infiltrated some of Christianity to this day. They even get some of the Bible stories wrong. I have more respect for the History Channel (other than this issue) than the Discovery Channel since the History Channel at least tries to talk about some mysteries of life that I enjoy. As for the Obama controversy, far too often, the President is being used as a scapegoat for our country's ills collectively. It is so easy to say it's Obama's fault 24/7, but it takes a wise human being to witness & acknowledge Obama's errors while at the same time acknowledging that our oppression never started when President Barack Obama was elected at all. As for God and Satan, blacks are the first humans on Earth. God created black humans in his image first, so who do you think God is? It is obvious who God is. We all know who is Satan.

Yeah....because all black women behave in this manner right pal!

NO not hardly....stop acting as if all black women are exactly alike...they're all no more alike than we black men are all alike!

Stop acting like a's weak,pathetic and unbecoming!



As to your last point: Human relations, human community, is more involving than two points connected by a line. A new human community is what I've got in mind. It is an active relation of self with others and the world. There can be no "I" without a "thou".
In part, I have in mind something like Dr. King's idea of the World House, if you're familiar with WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE, CHAOS OR COMMUNITY? And I find myself in stream with the moral sentiments implied in the following words of Black revolutionary humanist Frantz Fanon:"What we want to do is to go forward all the the company of Man, in the company of ALL men."
This is the fundamental meaning of a new Revolution. FREEDOM RISING!!!



Tell that to the Algerians of whom the French massacred about 1 million. Or the Iraqis who were subjected to poison gas by the British long before Saddam Hussein. Or the Hereros, nearly exterminated by the Germans. Or even Europeans exterminated by other Europeans
Racist whites probably would not have allowed Muslim Arabs into Europe, except as cheap labor. Same way in which they admitted Blacks and others. But racist whites didn't mind allowing THEMSELVES in Muslim and other Third countries.

And after what those whites did to women of color in Africa, Asia and the Americas, don't b_--- to me about rape.

Last month he was on tour assisting Sister Souljah, promoting her new book - which I was very surprised.

Jada naively believes that all covers are created equal. You see, Jada, it is already assumed by white Americans that Black magazines are inherently "inferior". Just as Black colleges and all other Black institutions are also considered inherently "inferior". You will never see a white contestant for Miss Black America, because it
is already assumed that Miss America represents "all" of America which
is predominately Caucasian and inherently superior

We play into the inferiority by preferring white owned and operated firms and institutions rather than our own; we eschew even our own culture when we process our hair and when women try to emulate the same physical figure as white women. Consider the case of Zoe Saldana being cast as the lead for a biopic about Nina Simone. While Ms. Saldana is indeed a talented actress, she bears no resemblance to the late Ms Simone. Now while there are other talented Black actresses who would be equally
as capable of portraying Nina Simone and have a greater resemblance to
her, Ms.Saldana's complexion is more acceptable to white audiences rather than a Black actress who would more resemble the darker skinned Nina Simone who was proud of her looks to the point of militancy (God Bless Her) and Hollywood is not willing to risk huge amounts of money alienating white audience members. And yet they say there's no more segregation.
I would challenge Jada to request one of her Caucasian friends in Hollywood to offer to pose for a Black magazine and see what their reaction would be. The only one of note would be Coco Austin (wife of the rapper Ice-T) and you already see how white America in general regards her. I would welcome any discussion on the subject from Jada Pinkett-Smith or anyone for that matter if you think I'm wrong on this subject.


Real Lesson RE Dims vis-a-vis Bush Jr: Capitulation & Complicity

The Dims capitulated [or were in cahoots] from the very beginning vis-a-vis Bush Jr. First they 'conveniently' scape-goated Nader in 2000 because the Dims let Bush Jr get away w hi-jacking the 2000 election in broad day-lite [so Bush Jr did it again in 2004] & because Gore failed to win his own [& Slick Willie's]  home states of TN & AR. They then confirmed their capitualtion / complicity when the CBC tried a last ditch effort to challenge Bush's thievery in 2000 yet could NOT GET not even ONE so-called 'liberal / progressive' white Dim senator to sign on. In fact the CBC members were MOCKED by the senate. IMO this set the stage for the 9-11 'New Pearl Harbor' event including the Anthrax Home-Grown [via Fort De-trick MD] {false-flag}Terrorist Attacks on the Bush Jr / Cheney / NeoCON watch.
But the modern fore-runner to Dims' capitulation to Repug skull-duggery RE: Bush Jr- was the Iranian Oct [thru Jan] surprise 1980-81 w Skippy-Jiff Carter vis-a vis Holly-weird Ray-Gun. Word is that Carter refused to even listen to those who tried to tell him how Mr CIA / Skull{duggery}& Bones Bush Sr, Bill Casey & Bob Gates [all were top Ray-gun_Repug type CIA Guys] sabotaged his efforts to negotiate w the Iranians to end the hostage crisis.
