Post Racial AmeriKKKa? Are You Fuckin Kidding Me?

WARNING: If Words Offend You…Like House Nigger…..move on. If Truth Offends You…Goodbye.

 

I’ve heard this term “Post Racial America” since 2008 when Barack Hussein Obama won his first term as President Of The United States Of America. It’s bull shit.

 

No such thing as a “Post Racial America” exist. The word “Post” is defined as “after.”

 

The term Post Racial America is defined as…..Post-racial America is a theoretical environment where the United States is devoid of racial preference, discrimination, and prejudice. Some Americans believed that the election of Barack Obama as President and wider acceptance of interracial marriage signified that the nation had entered this state, while others believe that groups such as the Tea Party movement prove it has not.

 

In January 2010 the Pew Research Center conducted a poll in conjunction with National Public Radio that indicated that 39% of persons of African-American descent felt they were in a better position than they had been five years ago, an increase of 19% from the previous poll taken in 2008.  Actor and director Mario Van Peebles made a television documentary titled Fair Game that challenged the idea that the United States had become a post-racial society.

Documentary “Fair Game”

Whats disgusting to me, as a Black Man, is I could only fine this 1 minute 6 second You Tube clip on this documentary by Mario Van Peebles…..in This Post Racial AmeriKKKa.

 

 

 

From NPR:

 

Mario Van Peebles On A ‘Post-Racial’ America

January 29, 2010

 

Mario Van Peebles discusses the idea behind his new documentary “Fair Game?” and comments on personal versus social responsibility.

 

After Wednesday night’s State of the Union, there was renewed talk of being in a post-racial America. A new documentary, Fair Game, airs Sunday on TVOne and it questions that very thesis. Host Michel Martin speaks with Mario Van Peebles, the director of the documentary.

 

MICHEL MARTIN, Host:

 

I’m Michel Martin, and this is TELL ME MORE from NPR News.

 

TLC: the 250th episode of the TLC hit “What Not to Wear.” That’s in just a few minutes.

 

But first, as we’ve discussed, President Obama gave his first formal State of the Union address this week. And while most people knew Obama’s first year in office would not be an easy one, many Americans still hope his presidency would usher in a post-racial era. Now, public opinion poll still show that Americans, in general, and African-Americans in particular see his presidency as a sign of the door of opportunity has opened.

 

But some believe it has opened all the way, to the point where they have lost patience with African-Americans who are not achieving.

 

(SOUNDBITE OF DOCUMENTARY, “FAIR GAME“))

Unidentified Woman: I’m not racist. I’m just tired to hear the black people complain. Obama’s election proves it. It’s a fair game.

 

MARTIN: That’s the opening of a new documentary called “Fair Game” from filmmaker Mario Van Peebles. And it asks: is it really a fair game for black men in America? The film features provocative interviews with a diverse array of black male scholars, celebrities and other public figures giving their perspective on that question. And it premieres Sunday night on the TV One cable network, and filmmaker Mario Van Peebles is with us now from NPR West. Welcome.

 

MARIO VAN PEEBLES: Thanks for having me on.

 

MARTIN: I should say welcome back because we last heard from you about your last TV One project called “Mario’s Green House,” which was about your efforts to go green with your very cute family. It had a serious subject, which is just how hard it can be and how much thought goes into going green. But it had a very lighthearted air. This is a very different project and I wanted to ask what drew you to this.

 

VAN PEEBLES: Well, I guess, you know, it’s interesting. I kind of grew up with that sort of cool ’60s “I’m with the band” mom who is always on the, you know, sort of, had an eco-consciousness. And then with my, you know, politically active – the risk of sounding Sarah Palin-ish – mavericky dad, who was always involved, you know, in what was happening with the Panthers and who, you know, did the first black power film in the ’70s, “Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song” actually. And so, I guess it’s sort of both sides in my family.

 

And really what’s interesting, all these things actually interconnect. If you sort of treat the environment in sort of this mechanical, industrial way that there’s a disconnect between man and the environment, it’s very easy to treat people that way.

 

MARTIN: The film spotlights a number of dire but familiar statistics about African-American men, the disproportionate incarceration rate, the achievement gap both racially and between black men and women. It isn’t as though we have not heard these things before. What do you think you have added in this film that is new to the conversation?

 

VAN PEEBLES: Well, I think what is new to some degree is the time. You know, we have an African-American family in the White House. It’s got a lot of folks thinking about identity and what’s going on, and are we really post-racial, is it now a fair game? And in, you know, one of the things we examined was tests where they sent out applicants for jobs. And we found that the white guy with the exact same credentials as the black guy – except for the white guy had a prison record and the black guy did not – the white guy got more job interviews with that prison record.

 

MARTIN: The film puts a lot of emphasis into talking about the high incarceration rate and what effect it has on the African-American men in particular…

 

VAN PEEBLES: Right.

 

MARTIN: But I want to play a short clip from somebody named Glenn Martin. He’s an ex-offender who is now the vice president of the Fortune Society, that’s an organization that advocates for greater opportunities for former offenders. This is something that I must say was new to me…

 

VAN PEEBLES: Mm-hmm.

 

MARTIN: …having spent a lot of time reporting on these areas. He talks about the whole, the impact of having to pay huge arrearages for child support for men who’ve been incarcerated…

 

VAN PEEBLES: Right.

 

MARTIN: …who clearly, while they were incarcerated, were unable to earn income, and here is what he had to say.

 

GLENN MARTIN: When you’re in prison that don’t stop. You still pay child support. You can’t afford to pay it, so what? It builds up. Now, you walk out, you owe like 50 G’s in child support arrears. And you don’t usually owe it to your baby’s mother, you owe it to the state. And the state is not willing to forgive that. They’re like: you owe every penny of that 50 grand. So some cat gets a job, he goes to work. Two weeks later, child support kicks in. He’s like, man, I’m not doing this, 60 percent of my paycheck going towards child support and she is not even getting the money, my baby not even getting the money.

 

And then some cats say, you know what, she did that. She put me in that situation. I’m not even dealing with her. So, that just totally removes the person from even thinking about getting the family back together and doing the right thing and seeing if he could work it out.

 

MARTIN: The reason I’m highlighting this is he’s not the only person to say that there are just sort of systems that are in place that keep people in a hole. And once they’re in that hole, it’s very hard to get out of it.

 

MARTIN: You’re making excuses and the trick here is not to get in that hole to begin with. What do you say to that?

 

VAN PEEBLES: Correct. Okay, so this is a very good point. And this is the danger with, you know, when you get folks like myself who can make a living directing and that’s great. But I got here because I’m educated, that’s the truth. And I had a dad who, you know, saw to it that I was. What happens is it creates a dynamic where people don’t look at social responsibility. They only look at personal responsibility.

 

Yes, as an individual, it’s, you’ve got to get up there and do your best and get out there. But I’ll tell you what. My kids are going right now to a private school. They were at a public school for a minute.

 

There is a public school, you know, not too far from us that if you go to that public school, your diploma is worth next to nothing. So you could be the best kid at that school and you would not be prepared, when you got out, to go to any college. There is definitely places in America where if you’re born into that environment, your chances of getting out are really, really limited.

 

MARTIN: The film makes an interesting – has an interesting conversation with itself about the role of black celebrities in framing the larger national conversation about African-Americans in general. But I want to play an interesting clip from Chris Rock…

 

VAN PEEBLES: Okay.

 

MARTIN: …that’s kind of a response to the idea or a challenge to the idea that black celebrity in and of itself is just positive. Here it is.

 

(SOUNDBITE OF DOCUMENTARY, “FAIR GAME”))

CHRIS ROCK: Exceptional black people have always kind of been rewarded. Martin Luther King’s dream coming true is for mediocre black people to live and succeed in this world the same way that mediocre white people do.

 

MARTIN: You know, it sounds funny, but he’s very serious. He’s very clear about what he is saying. What do you think about that? Do you think that’s true?

 

VAN PEEBLES: I absolutely do. I think that there will always be – DuBois, I think, referred to it as the talented tenth. The people that will, you know, will get there. But the thing is the bigger group of us, how do they get across the line and what’s the shape of it to come?

 

MARTIN: What do you think you learned from this? I mean, you’ve thought about a lot of these issues for a long time. Like President Obama, you have – if you don’t mind my using this expression – feet in many worlds. You are biracial, like the president, and you’ve lived all over the place. You’ve traveled quite a bit. Did you learn anything from reporting this film that you had not thought about before or known before?

 

VAN PEEBLES: Yeah. Well, I learned a lot. What I didn’t know when I started it was how much mentorship meant. No matter what color you are, if you mentor some little boy or girl, you make a huge difference in their lives because they then model behavior that leads to success versus modeling behavior that doesn’t. And I think we have an opportunity and that’s why “Fair Game” is a bit also of a call to action. If, you know, if you’ve got money, you can give it, you can donate.

 

But if you’ve got time, and that’s the biggest thing, you know, mentor someone. Mentor someone that doesn’t just look like you. Let them learn about you and understand you and connect. And I think that’s one of the biggest things I learned.

 

MARTIN: Mario Van Peebles is one of the producers and the host of the new documentary “Fair Game.” It premieres this Sunday on TV One. It explores the lives and challenges of African-American men in the Obama era. And he was kind enough to join us from NPR West. Thank you so much for speaking with us.

 

VAN PEEBLES: Thank you for having me on.

 

Thank you NPR.

Allow me to break it down for you who don’t know….there is no such thing as a “Post Racial America.” There is a “Post Racial AmeriKKKa”…and THAT AmeriKKKa has become a land of genocide for Black males.

 

Stand Your Ground Laws in 31 states have made it open season on Black males, replacing the tree & rope of southern lynchings with a firearm sanctioned by The NRA, A.L.E.C., The Koch Brothers and racist, scared, gun nuts who stand behind an antiquated 2nd amendment.

 

Trayvon Martin. Jordan Davis. Melissa Alexander. Remember the names, then research the thousands of other names you never hear about on local & national media networks, of Black skinned Americans killed under this Stand Your Ground Law.

 

You don’t need a rope or a tree to lynch a Black American in 2013. You only need to procure a gun at a gun trade show, or any gun shop across AmeriKKKa, then feel threatened by someone of color. Aim, pull the trigger. Then scream Self Defense.

 

racism-in-america

 

 

There are two America’s. One is The United States Of America, which has humans who love and respect human life and stand for equality for ALL Americans. Then there is The United States Of AmeriKKKa, now THAT AmeriKKKa has sub humans who want equality ONLY for those who look, think and conduct themselves as caucasian, wealthy, greedy, evil caucasian males.

 

There are a few house niggers allowed to participate in that AmeriKKKa, just as in slavery times, the caucasian slavers employed house niggers as slavers to lure unsuspecting Africans into the nets of the caucasian slavers. House niggers are always useful to capture more Black Americans in slave nets….which in 2013, is the TeaTardedRepubliCANT Party.

 

There are also a few gullible women who forsake their own best interest of freedom for ALL women, the choice to decide their path on women’s issues such as birth control, contraception and equal pay, just to follow their caucasian menfolk. There are a lot of poor caucasian AmeriKKKans who vote against their own best interests on every level, to avoid voting for and supporting “That Negro President.”

 

That’s what separates the two America/AmeriKKKa’s and it has divided this once great nation in half.

 

little-rock schoolintegration civility-rights

 

Post Racial my Black Ass.

 

This Government Shutdown is not about ObamaCARES or The Debt Ceiling OR A Clean Continuing Resolution.

 

This government shutdown is racist and not very shy about it either.

 

Let me break it down for you who don’t know. Racist ass caucasians, and the hand full of house niggers who follow behind, sucking their nasty sweaty balls, do not want Barack Hussein Obama to be a success because he is Black. ObamaCARES is something that will put Barack Hussein Obama in the history books for much more than being the first Black human to be elected President Of The United States.

 

563637_402184726528923_333562452_n (1)

 

The Affordable Health Care Act elevates Barack Hussein Obama into the history books with The Presidents who implemented Social SecurityMedicareMedicaid, The G.I. Bill. It secures a legacy no other caucasian POTUS has had since those great men who started the above mentioned social services.

 

Can you imagine an America without Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, SNAP, Veterans Benefits? In 30 years, Barack Hussein Obama will be known as the Father Of American Health Care. Now what racist ass cracka caucasian wants THAT?

 

Think it any coincidence the U.S. Government was shut down by racist caucasian slaves of the Koch Brothers and Grover Norquist on the VERY SAME DAY ObamaCARES opens it’s enrollment?

 

What has been the headlines today, Government Shutdown or ObamaCARES Open Enrollment?

 

They could NOT allow The Affordable Health Care Act to be a success. I mean how can some Harvard educated Black dude be mentioned in the same breath as  President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Social Security Act of 1935. They could not possibly “let” a Negro be thought of in the same way we think of President Lyndon B. Johnson and Medicare…heaven forbid!!

 

SO, the TeaTardedRepubliCANTS devised a plan to make Barack Hussein Obama the shame of the 44 Presidents. Make his signature legislation, legislation that saves lives and insures millions of Americans for the very FIRST time in their lives, The Affordable Health Care Act aka ObamaCARES, the single reason for shutting down theUnited States Government.

 

It’s ALL about race. P.E.R.I O.D.

 

And they were able to accomplish all this carnage for middle class federal employees and their families, middle class business owners, middle class workers, the poor, the elderly, American military personnel, children and expectant mothers, ONLY  because you middle class voters sat on your lazy asses on Tuesday, November 2, 2010.

 

Grover Norquist and The Koch Brothers thank you.

 

What YOU going to do on “NO”vember 4th, 2014? You better VOTE while YOU still have the right to vote. The UNSupreme Court Of The United States Of AmeriKKKa may just wake up on “NO”vember 5th and take that right away.

 

If YOU believe there is such a thing as a “Post Racial America” YOU are either blind and deaf to the current events….

 

Or YOU are caucasian.

 

Welcome to a “Post Racial AmeriKKKa.”

  1. Wonderful as always. I am leaving you with something I thought you might be interested in.

  2. Reblogged this on idealisticrebel and commented:
    Racism is getting worse I think. Great blog.

  3. Very well written & put together piece Jueseppi; as usual…I don’t tip-toe very well through tulips either; so I’m just going to say it like it is. Or least the way I see it and live it. I know alot of people from coast to coast. Upclose and personal..Great deal of folks I know are White.I do not recall any , not one, Black person I know saying they thought it was a post-racial America. Not when President Obama was elected; and certainly not NOW. Though I have heard it said..But again NOT from Black folks. I think many White folks thought and think that..But I can only assume from the things I’ve heard for I’ve no clue what anyone truly thinks..(behind closed doors..) Only what they say out loud and in public. (with some people there IS a difference..example=Paula Deen) What I do feel many Blacks I know, including myself, felt/feel, once Pres. Obama was elected. Is that NOW there is nothing that is impossible for our sons(I’ve got 3 of them..) to accomplish in America. The ice has been broken..But OMG what a feat & dang near miracle it took for Pres. Obama to get there..I’ve written on this topic. I’ve blogged on this topic. It is interesting to see that some White folks not only think its a post-racial America; but also say they don’t live nor have they ever lived in an area of racial issues/tension. WOW. I won’t even dig into that scenario right now. Because first of all I don’t feel it exists..

    What I will say is this. We’ve yet a LONG way to go in our country in getting things equal & FAIR. A long way..And that became even moreso obvious since Barack Obama was elected POTUS. Very much moreso..Just! the level of BLATANT disrespect Pres. Obama has endured right there in D.C. is proof positive..And that is just the tip of the iceberg..It is deep. I see people in my life trying hard to level out the playing fields. It is tough work! But it can be done..there are scores and scores of groups helping other people. People helping others withOUT funds from the government. Mentors and food banks and job centers and etc etc..I myself have just signed on to mentor a young woman from an urban area..She is in GREAT need of a mentor and has a strong desire to be a rose rising UP from the cement..She is 20 yrs old and wants to get her G.E.D..I want her to get her diploma and then onto college..I’m to meet her Monday and friends of mine are nervous I will get too attached..And I probably will for I know no other way to than to nuture and love..I think there is nothing love can’t fix and cure. I got off on a tangent but my point is this is not a post-racial America

    • Good luck with your meeting on Monday. Thats a very good thing you’re doing. I wish I had patience to mentor but I do not. I’d make a horrible teacher. AmeriKKKa is fucked, and will continue to be fucked until America stops accepting racism. Thank you for your supportive words Bernadette.

      • Thank you for the well wishes Jueseppi..Confident a person as I’ve grown to be? And just between you and me? Well and whoever is reading this; I am a little nervous! After all this isn’t “my” child; you know? And the stakes are high..I was told this young lady is high energy(which makes her a perfect match for me) and yearns! to grow out of her environment and yet needs guidance…I just want to be a positive influence on her and gently show her she can EXCEL beyond anyone else’s dreams for her..Even her own. Problem IS when it comes to education and child-rearing I was not always gentle..I said things like they “were”…I didn’t mince words often with my sons..After all they were to one day be MEN; as they have grown to be..But this is a young lady and I’m not her parent. So it will be a learning experience for me also..I’ve prayed that I can give her something to help her nearer her goals and potential. Nervous I am but also excited for the opportunity to make a difference

      • You will be good for her and even better for yourself since your sons are not much in need of guidance any longer as they once were.

      • It is going to be a new experience that is for sure..My first official , on paper, time mentoring someone..My mentors(yep I’ve got mentors..) are suggesting I keep my emotions under wraps and try to remember it is NOT my child..Not sure how to do that though so we shall see…

      • Tone it down 6 notches and you’ll be just fine & dandy.

      • Did I tell you you’re one of the few & rare people who has spelled my name correctly??? And that is including folks who have known me forever..lol, lol! What a memory you have

      • My first true love in high school was named Bernadette Mitchell….and I shoulda married that beauty of a woman. I could never forget that name.

      • ahhhh I’m glad she represented for the Bernadettes! WE are a breed all our own..You do know they named a song after me???

      • Yes, I know…the dells or was it the 4 tops?

      • The 4 Tops sing it, of course! Was one of my Daddy’s fave groups and songs so I heard it often in the 70s? Tho I think the song came out in late or mid 60s And? Every word in that song rings true to form .. Check this out last night ? OMG first time doing Karoke at a new spot that I really really reallyyy like ! Atmosphere was awesome and even the owner catered to me.. Made me a special pot of Joffrey coffee Yummy! And I was the only person in the place drinking coffee instead of liquor Go figure it was a big sports bar type place And the Karoke DJ? Wowwww had such a nice singing voice Tore the notes off a Frank Sinatra song to break the ice I’m no Sinatra fan but he made it sound greatttt And guess what was the ONLY song he dedicated and played to anyone ? He played BERNADETTE after I went up to turn in my song request I was going to sing . Wowww needless to say I was impressed with the place and had a FABulous time

      • But you failed to mention anything about Officer Friendly….

      • Officer Friendly is really truly too good to be true..I mean who lucks UP and meets someone this compatible right out of the gate??? He is trying to maintain himself & his compose; yet last night? Caught me offguard by running his hand through my hair(from across the table no less..) I really didn’t expect that! I must’ve looked at him like he was crazy(I mean anyone in their right mind knows NOT to mess with a sister’s hair; unless invited) His explanation , & he started explaining quickly, left me speechless! I was glad I had bit my tongue & not snapped at him (which was my first thought to do) Other than that there is only one thing that I foresee as being possibly problematic..But I’m trying to wait it out to see how it unfolds. Briefly. Least for one more date..

  4. I believe you.

  5. Reblogged this on Social Awareness.

  6. I have a white friend who, with her husband, adopted a Black boy, a Black-Hispanic bi-racial boy and a Korean girl. She told often how her white friends tried to fit her kids into their idea of what they should be. The boys would be into sports and the girl into math, music and art. Our world is sick because of racism. :(
