A little sumptin for y a
We are not suppose to play our drums anymore,
They have been broken,
The people who brought us here don't like the drums.
THEY know the drums give us strength.
So they have forbidden us to play them.
The Drums give us strength........
--lyrics to some tribal house tune I work out to. I crack up every time. Especially when I want to cuss out the white boy at the front desk (at my gym) who always pretends like I'm speaking another language when I ask him the most basic things. I have this song blasting in my head, while I ask him for a fucking towel. Fucker. Just gimme the goddamn towel. Don't make me get my tribe after yo ass.
The headlines on the local black folks newspaper cracks me up too. I don't know why they don't just come out and say "KILL WHITEY!" on the front page. It's always some headline about how the black man is being disparaged and beat down by the white man.
That's why I love Chicago. We have all decided to hate whitey, and that's just how it is.
I know. Totally. Un.Productive.
She always blames me for everything.

Pro-black is usually considered anti-white by the non-black populace. Especially if there is any blame being thrown at the mainstream.
"Jena 6: Young Black Males the Target of Small-town Racism"
Is not read word for word, but read
"Jena 6: Niggas blaming the white man for their ignorance. AGAIN."
It all sounds reasonable to me.
Maybe we need more black rage, indian rage, jewish rage, muslim rage, rage against the white man. Put the fucker on notice.

"here is an anti-immigrant message"
But you see, blacks won't take those jobs...

Times like this I miss my little brother. Right now we would be breaking into our little chatter where he whines about how hard he's working for peanuts, why they always keeping the black man down, then I say hey imagine being a black woman, we have to put up with black men AND the white man, not to mention oppression by our sistas! and on and on. And then we break down into laughter because it is all so ridiculous, as he gets into his super-expensive SUV and goes to his huge condo with his wealthy girlfriend, worrying about when he is next going to be able to replace his designer warddrobe.

I dunno, I didn't see the article in question as particularly racist. There was a strong bias to the article, but it's not a shocking one considering it appears in a black paper (do they use white ink?). If the facts as reported in that article are true, the district superintendant really is being a peckerwood, although at least the principal seems to have his head on straight. Kids hung nooses from a tree at our school, I'd expect the kids gone by sunrise, and I'd be running for the school board if they weren't.
