News: Obama, Pharrell, Lemon, Holder, Capehart, Peterson, Gay Marriage, Black Colleges, RGIII, Etc.

By Walter L. Hilliard III


Obama, Always Blaming Black Folks – Can you believe it– first President Barack Obama tells Africa to stop blaming colonialism and the west for its problems, and now he’s telling Latin American countries at the “Summit of the Americas ” meetings in Panama to stop blaming the United States for its problems.  I’m just wondering where Obama’s White Paternalism comes from, his maternal grandpappy?  We all know his African daddy skipped town, but somebody needs to “check” him when he gets out of control.  The reality is that the United States and its various agencies, along with its military, has been the leader among all nations when it comes to working undercover to destabilize governments it doesn’t like, especially in Africa and Latin America.   But none of his behavior surprises me since he threw his pastor of 20 years, Jeremiah Wright, under the us” for political gain.  And we already know he always talks down to Black people or belittles them in front of the world; Jessie Jackson also said he wanted to “cut his [Obamas] nuts out” for “talking down to Black people.  Obviously, Obama still hasn’t learned a lesson.


Anyway . . . . I’m already tired of talking about him.


Jonathan Capehart, a Super Uncle Tom –  After a Black Backlash against liberal Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart “kind of apologized for writing a column trashing protestors and their “Black Lives Matter” efforts because a bogus Justice Department investigation predictably found Mike Brown’s killer Officer Darren Wilson innocent or that there wasn’t enough evidence to convict him.  Capehart, a gay (but of course he is, otherwise wouldn’t be writing for the Washington Post), columnist and editor at the Washington Post, wrote a column titled:  “Hands up, don’t shoot!  was built on a lie.”   Is he talking about the “generic lies” that Wilson, and every other cop that kills and unarmed Black man tells, told about feeling Brown was a threat, went for his gun, and so he had to kill him?  He also had the nerve to say:  “But we must never allow ourselves to march under the banner of a false narrative on behalf of someone who would otherwise offend our sense of right and wrong.”  You know, Capehart is the perfect example of a Black man who has been “neutered” by 400 years of White lies– lies that either make a Black man think like Malcolm X or cower and “effeminize” their mindset when confronting American oppression.  Although Capehart likes to “advertise” his homosexuality and White boyfriend, thinking he appears to be special to his oppressors, the fact is that he’s the worst kind of Black man on the planet because he has happily stepped into the non-threatening stereotypes of Black men that were created by “his master.”  And guess what, his masters are also laughing at him:  “See, that’s a good litter Nigger– he knows exactly we want him to be.  Ha, ha, ha!  Dumb Ass!!!!”


Yeaaaaa!!!! Marvin Gaye’s Family Wins – Finally, a Black person wins something back from the music industry Robber Barons. And Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke have been proven to be the crooks we knew they were, having stole the great Marvin Gaye’s “Got to Give it Up!” and created “Blurred Lines.”   But what’s just as newsworthy is how Thicke, distancing himself from Pharrell like a weasel when the charges came down, said he was “high” and really had nothing to do with writing the song— it was Pharrell’s fault. And like the mainstream music whoremonger and Uncle Tom he is, Pharrell agreed with Thicke “throwing him under the bus.” Bitch. But I guarantee you if a Black artist threw Pharrell under the bus, he’d put a “Black on Black” crime ass-whippin’ on him and try to cut him. But, no, Thicke is White, and so Pharrell reverts to a subservient, master-slave role.  It just goes to show that even though you may have talent, you can still be a major jackass!


You see, racism is a disgusting plague that costs Black people their lives (police shootings; poor medical care; etc), leads to their being harassed and followed in department stores, denied apartments and bank loans, and fired by racist bosses.  And this plague has so infected White America that I can literally predict the feedback from them when something occurs involving Blacks. For example, after Pharrell and Robin Thicke were found guilty, I went on “Entertainment Tonight’s” website to watch the video of Gaye’s family being interviewed.   After watching the video, I decided to take a peek at the public commentaries that followed the video, figuring White folks were upset, especially since so many of them love Pharrell and Thicke.  And . . . Yup!  My fears were realized, as I read comment after comment trashing Gaye’s family as being greedy and undeserving.  I see the same thing when a Black athlete signs a big contract and the animosity from fans and sports talk show personalities start accusing Black players of receiving too much money.   Next, they begin making racist comments about how the player is going to buy “22 inch” rims, flashy jewelry, or an expensive car.  They want to know:  “So, what are you going to spend all that money on?”  They don’t believe Black people, no matter how talented they are, are deserving of lots of money. Sure, Black athletes buy jewelry and fancy cars, but White athletes by ranches, pickup trucks and snow mobiles—but you rarely hear anyone asking them what they’re going to do with all their money.

Don Lemon-Aid – So, unfortunately, two cops were shot (both are okay) in Ferguson recently, and CNN’s Don Lemon “Don’t be killin’ polices.” Polices? What in the hell is are polices? But that’s Don Lemon’s MO; he’s a racist in Blackface, intentionally interviewing an uneducated Black woman who doesn’t speak well and disparages the Black protestors (a ghetto Uncle Tom, if you will), showcasing her on CNN. And this isn’t the first time he’s done this. Now, look, Black people watch the mainstream media do this all the time, and we know it’s to make Black people look bad (Antione Dodson comes to mind), but Lemon is out of control.

US Attorney General Eric Holder Dehumanizing Blacks – “A damn punk!” That’s what US Attorney General Eric Holder called the individual(s) who shot two police officers in Ferguson, MO. He also said the attack on the officers “turned my stomach.”  No, of course I don’t condone such an act, but I never heard Holder call any of the cops that have shot scores of Black people this year punks.  I also never heard him make personal references to the character of any White common criminal.


So Holder was showing the difference between Black and White life: when White cops kill or shoot Black people, they say, “Be calm, we will investigate.” But when two cops are shot— these alleged shooters are “Damn punks.” It’s the same dehumanizing attitude Obama exhibited when he called Kanye West a “Jackass.” Holder and Obama know that White America wants them to “prove” they’re not racist against Whites. Of course this sounds silly, but just watch CNN and the other networks questioning Black protestors about the shooting of the cops, as if they’re not going to criticize the shooters or they’re going to condone violence against cops. For example, one of the “usual suspects,” CNN’s Jake Tapper, kept asking “leading” questions to a Black protest leader, trying to get her to condemn the police shooting and cancel their plans to protest the night the cops were shot.


Just a thought . . . .

Susan Rice A Murderer? – I once saw Susan Rice’s (rice is Black) face placed next to a genocide ad with skulls, denoting her so called “blindspot” regarding the genocide she discouraged then President Bill Clinton from stopping in Rwanda. Well, Clinton didn’t, heavily influenced by Rice, intervene and 800,000 Rwandans, 8,000 a day ended up killing one another (mainly Hutus killing Tutsis and moderate Hutus)– and he is ultimately most responsible.  Albeit the ad was placed by a Jewish demagogue looking to score political points against President Barack Obama because of his being upset with Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu, who was defiantly taking his case to the US Congress to complain about Obama possibly settling on a nuclear weapons treaty with Iran. Netanyahu and Obama have a cantankerous history because, but of course, Netanyahu believes Obama’s work with Iran regarding their potential to develop nuclear weapons is putting Israel in a dangerous position.

Why am I happy about the ad disparaging Rice? I’m happy because it reminds some, and informs others who didn’t know, about Rice’s responsibility for the genocide in Rwanda. More specifically, she intentionally avoided using the word “genocide” to honestly describe what the U.S. knew was going on, but what’s even more tragic and racist is you have a Black woman with power and influence indirectly causing the death of nearly a million people; however, many estimate that her actions lead to millions of deaths in Rwanda.  Rice, Clinton, Madeline Albright, Warren Christopher, and Anthony Lake were also responsible for the genocide because they colluded to deceive the public regarding their communications, knowing that the US would have been obligated to intervene in Rwanda because of the 1948 Genocide Convention agreement.  I have one question, if Whites were killing one another like the Blacks were in Rwanda, do you think the US and the world would have set idly by and let it happen?  Of course not.

Adrian Peterson Scores A Win Over Goodell – Thank Goodness! Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson, regarded as the bet back in the NFL, can return to football after a judge decided to overturn NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s suspension of Peterson, saying Goodell’s actions violated the league’s collective bargaining agreement. Goodell, playing to Public Opinion (“Uh-oh, Black folks, yaw betta run), was a “Black Player Career Murderer” this year, lying and also trying to destroy Ray Rice’s career. In fact, once Goodell came under pressure, he went after every player – all of whom happened to be Black – and tried to suspend them and destroy their careers, along with their teams, treating them as if they were “guilty before proven innocent.”



Obama Belittles Historically Black Colleges – Obama criticizing HBCUs, but not diploma mills like University of Phoenix. It’s not that Phoenix doesn’t offer a quality education; it’s more about their sucking up federal funds, including other predominantly White institutions, however, he will not criticize them. He’s the most powerful man in the world, choosing to behave as if he’s scared of and controlled by mainstream White opinion.

Immigration Must Be More Important To Obama Than The Plight Of Black People – President Barack Obama’s immigration efforts have been halted by a judge. The funny thing is we have over a million Black people in prison, many with inhumanely long sentences, and he’s going to step up and take on the law to help immigrants gain citizenship. And, yet, he refuses to step up and do anything for Backs and risk any criticism – despite the fact that we’ve been here for 400 years. Immigration is for everyone but Blacks – Haitians and Africans: “Because you’re Black, stay way back.” To those of you who have voted for and supported this man: Yaw betta wake up. If you don’t demand respect, you “gits not respect.” The sooner the shameless, racist, anti-Black Black man moves on, the better.

Gay Marriage Not Really A Black Thing – A YouGov Poll reveals that 48 percent of Whites, or half, favor gay marriage, while only 31 percent of Blacks do, less than a third. Forty percent of Hispanics support gay marriage, but 47 percent oppose gay marriage. Seventeen percent of Blacks “not sure,” while only 13 percent of Whites aren’t sure, and 14 percent of Hispanics aren’t. There should be no surprise that so many Whites support gay marriage because White gays are the engine that has driven the gay agenda, including bullying the first Black president to stand up and speak out on their behalf. However, once he was comfortably entrenched in office, they didn’t have to do much because he’s turned out to be the first gay president (there are also rumors Obama lived a gay lifestyle at one time, but gay a couple of gay Black men associated with him and Reverend Wright’s church mysteriously died) – based on his support, including repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and going public in support of gay marriage. But why would 31 percent of Black people support gay marriage when “the system” has targeted Blacks for homosexuality, as a form of population control or genocide, along with abortion. In 2012, Black women in NY aborted more Black babies than gave birth to babies. Shameful!!! But Blacks are the least supportive of gay marriage because many actually do realize the gay agenda (really the gay White agenda) is getting all kinds of support from leadership and mainstream Americans, most of who still see no problem with Black children and teenagers being blown away in the streets by policemen. “What about us,” Blacks are thinking? We’re doing pretty bad, especially since 2008 when the economy nearly collapsed and we lost most of the little wealth we had in our homes.”



RGIII Betta Recognize He’s Black – RGIII, generally speaking, hasn’t appeared to “get it” in the past—get the fact that he’s Black and will usually get the Nigg%^ Treatment (by the media, the coaches, the masses of White sports fan, etc.) like the rest of us, but he may never get it because his fame and fortune frequently gets him “a pass.”  He has to open up his eyes and pay attention and/or overcome his fear of the consequences of learning and repeating the truth.  Up until his injury, RGIII had it pretty good with mainstream America and its media— he found a White wife, was a star football player at Baylor, won the Heisman Trophy in 2011, was the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, and he was the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.  So after a serious injury and several poor performances after returning to the game he loves, he’s being reminded of his “place,” his being Black, by his White coach, Jay Gruden, who has taken every opportunity to belittle him, including benching him and “trashing” his performances when talking to the sports media. No, he’ll never admit that racism has a lot to do with how he’s been treated by the fans, the media, and his coach because they’ll run him out of the league; however, if he doesn’t come to see the truth, they’ll drive him crazy.

Andrew “Ol’ School Uncle Tom” Young – Recently, Andrew Young’s White friends must have instructed him to speak out on behalf of Danny Ferry, the White Atlanta Hawks (NBA) general manager who was in danger of losing his job because he made disparaging comments about a prospective African player, Lou Deng, the Hawks were considering bringing to the team. Ferry said that Deng couldn’t be trusted because, “he has a little African in him. Not in a bad way, but he’s like a guy who would have a nice store out front but sell you counterfeit stuff out the back.”


Me:  Why are Whites like Danny Ferry always forgiven, but Black people who speak out against gays (and gay Whites are really the power source of the gay movement) are punished or fired?


MySelf:  Well, because they’re White, stupid!


Me:  Oh, I must have forgotten this.

Al Jazeera America Reports On Homelessness & Kidnapping – Al Jazeera America recently reported on a Black D.C. child who’s been missing for over a year. Her family had ended up in a homeless shelter, where she was kidnapped by a suspected predator who got away with the crime, but later ended up dead, mysteriously, after news reports had implicated him as a suspect. The shelter was originally built as a hospital but now has over 200 mostly Black homeless families living among its rats and roaches, families who were forced out of affordable housing (rent raised) in D.C.— housing that continues to be bought up by income gentri-fiers. During the report, a Black female talked about an apartment her grandmother once lived in having the rent raised from $2,200 to over $4,000. “What a shame,” I thought.  However, this is all by design, and until Black people decided to say “no,” organize, make demands, and persist until their needs are addressed– nothing will change.

Chris Brown Gettin’ Down

But of course, all the critics are out in full force criticizing ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” for having Chris Brown perform on the show.

Now, look, no one’s excusing his assaulting Rihanna, but he’s a young man, he’s apologized, lost a great deal, and so it’s time to move on.  He deserves another chance to be “Chris Brown” and live his life.

Besides, how would you like it if the world kept reminding you of the mistakes you made when you were young?


DaYUM!!!  A Brotha Can’t Even Go to the Mall Anymore

Now really, though?!

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant made the news recently after he spun into a profanity-laced tirade on a mall security guard who stopped him and his buddies and told them to pull up their pants (Dez’s pants were up, a couple of his buddies pants were sagging).

Yes, the “nobody” security guard (off-duty cop; this makes it even worse) had the nerve to . . . yes he did.

Okay, I’m not a big fan of young Black men or hip hoppers who like to bop around with their draws hanging out, either, but a Black man already has to put up with being stopped by the police when he’s driving all the time, as well as scaring White women to clutch their purses on elevators.  But in the case of Bryant – even after having become a millionaire – he still has to put up with the haters.

I know Bryant and his boys had the bling-blinging and the security guard just couldn’t let his small mind pass up a big boy pants opportunity to put these Black boys in their place, so he did what he had to do and harassed them.

But Bryant, having not been satisfied, refused to leave after cursing out security – which I can understand – he also decided to raise more hell by defiantly parking in the fire lane outside the mall.  Eventually, after his lawyer and representative arrived, he left.  Bryant was also banned from the mall for three months.

I think he should sue them and start a campaign to encourage all Black people and people against racism, of any color, to never shop at that mall again until they apologize and donate money to a local community cause that helps poor kids

But that’s just me.

So of course Media Plantation Overseer Jim Rome couldn’t wait to get on the air and spew his juvenile, paternalistic take criticizing Bryant.  I just wanted Rome or any of these mainstream ridiculers of “all things Black” to try to, just once, to put themselves in the shoes of a young Black man and consider how they’d respond?

But, nahhh, that would be way too much to ask for.

Bryant must remember that there are a lot of cops that love to shoot Black men; don’t give them another reason to do so because we already they don’t really even need a legitimate reason to shoot and kill us.



It’s funny – but expected – how the mainstream sports media never says anything about the sacred, can-do-no-wrong Duke University basketball coaching God Mike Krzyzewski and the obviousness of his intentionally recruiting White players (and starting four) in a major college basketball world where most of the players are Black.  If his efforts weren’t intentional, the makeup of his team and starters wouldn’t be “so White.”  No, you would never here Krzyzewski make a racist comment, but actions speak louder than words and he’s not the class act he’s always portrayed as.

Recently, NBA personality Jalen Rose mentioned that when he was in school, he and his friends were well aware that they would never be recruited by Duke because of their poor background (“poor” also being a word for “race” in this case, as well).

No, all that glitters is rarely gold — Ya heard!!!


Still Scared

During a recent interview with CNN Newsroom host Don Lemon, Rodney King,  the LA PD beat-down victim, made a peculiar comment that caught my attention.  He said that at one point during his trial, in reference to an aspect of the case, his mother said, “Whatever you say, don’t say it was racism.”  King, taking his mother’s advice, caused problems during the trial because the prosecutors criticized him for changing his story several times about whether or not the police used a racial epithet – the N-Word.  King said he tried to appease his mother and not bring up race by not acknowledging that he heard the N-Word during the beating, but he ultimately told the truth that the officers did use the word while he was being beaten.

King’s mother’s fear exemplifies how distorted the thinking of Blacks can become when dealing with whether or not to bring up the issue of racism.  It is this type of fear that actually enables racism to continue and let Whites (law enforcement, in this case) off the hook because so many Black people are afraid to acknowledge racism when it’s clearly a factor.

I understand King’s mother was trying to protect him from media and juror backlash by telling him not to acknowledge the issue of race, but if she, at her age, still can’t tell the truth about racism, then she needs to find a plantation somewhere that makes her “comfortable.”

We cannot overcome racism or any issue if continue to refuse even talk about it.


Slavery Alive & Well?

If recent NCAA Basketball Tournament on TV didn’t look like a plantation to you then you must be looking through a pair of rose-colored glasses.

If you take off the glasses, here’s what you’ll see: teams and starting fives that are predominantly or all Black; practically all of the head coaches are White, as are the assistant coaches; an ocean of White fans in the stands; a few Black commentators, but mostly White; and commercials filled with White actors.  Not to mention that most of the Black announcers or experts were former players, but this is less so the case with the White announcers — they don’t really have to had been former players to get their jobs.


BYU Hypocrisy

Not too long ago, you may have picked up on the mainstream media’s fascination with the Black Brigham Young University (BYU) player, Brandon Davies, being suspended from the team for the season for violating the Mormon college’s no-sex code.  Most of the media posterized Davies and praised BYU and their head coach for the suspension.

I mean, huh?  It’s been well-documented by current and former BYU students that there’s a ton of students having sex on BYU’s campus and that the Honor Code, which bans sex, is pretty much a joke.

Let’s keep it real, Davies is Black (his girlfriend is said to be White), attending a conservative institution, and he’s being held accountable by a religion that has historically practiced racism.  In fact, not until 1978 was a 100 year ban lifted that barred Black men from the Mormon priesthood.

Years ago, Jim McMahon, the Chicago Bears former Super Bowl QB and others violated BYU’s Honor Code by having sex but they were not suspended from the team.

It seems that BYU has a double standard when it comes to Black athletes who violate the code.  Former BYU running back Ronney Jenkins, who is also Black, was suspended for having sex with a White female when he was at BYU; however, some of his White teammates were doing the same, but were not suspended.

But is all this really a surprise – that a Black male athlete at any predominantly White institution is treated differently?

I think not.

But what’s so horrendous is that the mainstream media stays away from the racial issues, but glamorizes BYU’s “moral” Honor Code.

Maybe, just mayble, there is no double-standard operating at BYU?
