I decided to delve DEEP into #controversy here. A ***trigger warning*** to the racially sensitive, this is a piece that is meant to be a shocker and to provoke analytic thought. This is a call to the Black Womb to divest from that which is NOT in her best interest. This is a call to the Black Womb to realize her great power as a Woman and to NOT deny her greatness to appease the wounded hyper-masculines within our cohort. I wrote this in generalizations because it was easier, not because I am unaware or too stupid to understand what a generalization is and that they do not always apply to the all. It is NOT your average piece of writing on race by the black woman. It is designed to piss you off and get you to thinking. I anticipate your angry gossip, angry comments and complete denials. I know who you are and what your go to knee-jerk reactions are when it comes to black accountability for what is in our scope of power and access to control and change. I decided to view you as CAPABLE and SOVEREIGN and not as the slave-class we been encouraged to be.
With that said I firmly believe that the Black Womb is the God of the universe! Science has proven that the entire human species originates out of Africa and the Mitochondrial DNA Genome has been here on the planet for thousands of years before the Y-Chromosomal pattern was created by, you guessed it, the Black Womb. Via Channeling I was able to gather that we Dawta's (the galaxy) didn't always utilize sexual alchemy (or fuck) on our suns to create them. I am thankful to Spirit for that message... The GALAXY or the DAWTA gives birth to/creates the SUN or SON. Let those that have an ear hear!
As such, and with all of this in mind:
If black people are the ORIGINAL creators of life. and if there be NOTHING new under the sun... all we do has already been done...
then MISOGYNY, RACISM, CLASSISM AND MORE are BLACK INVENTIONS gone rogue and wild (because we no longer control them en masse). If the Black man is the father of civilization, and many of you hold this to be the truth, and the black woman is its mother, WE CREATED THIS SHIT!
ALLLLLLLL OF IT! even and especially that shit we HATE is in existence.
I remember... being one of those race women who blame ALL black harms, horrors and issues on white folks. I thank Goddess for growing up. We can cite slavery, apartheid, global disenfranchisement ALL THE LIVE LONG DAY for all the ills of black society. and RIGHTEOUSLY SO! We can say that black men are abusive, black woman hating deadbeats on account of picking up the euro man all the live long day.
But I ask you: what about those 56 women raped hourly in the congo, that they know of there's only 56 per hr, who are not black american with the black american slave legacy? and they will say that it is colonialism that did it.
and I will ask: what about the FACT that africans SOLD THEIR OWN to the white man? as proof that WE CREATED THE SAME SYSTEM WE HATE and abhor, and they will say that slavery in africa was different than what white people did. you will hear about chattle slavery and other regurgitated soundbites on race relations.
And I will ask them about the 3 black/brown men who RAPED and murdered Quiana Jenkins, the WIFE of Marine Jan Pawel Pietrzak eventually killing him after making him watch them rape his wife, for being married to a white man? The same of which, after raping that woman, killing her husband via one shot to the head and then killing her with a double shot to the back of the head, wrote "nigger lover" on their bedroom wall. And they will use denial, excuses, the media, statistical tampering and more to say that those violent rapist murder's of OUR sister and her husband were innocent. (A jury sentenced 2 of them to death and one to life in jail without parole in June.) We will say it was that the man did something to them.. not that this couple was PUNISHED for their choice to LOVE one another.
and the blame will keep going BACK to white folks. This leaves no room for us to examine the ways in which we DO have the power to make choices that serve our highest good and best interest. which says, to me, that black people collectively when it is convenient for us, endorse the willful enslaving of our Divine Will, individual/collective Choice Power and Birth Rite to global white supremacy. How so?
ANY SOVEREIGN PERSON OR GROUP will be seeking to HEAL and harmonize their cohort. not find JUSTIFICATION, based on historics, economics and virtual access, for their dysfunctional, self defeating behaviors, attitudes, practices, beliefs and cultural adaptations.
When I was a child, my cohort and I were accused of "thinking we were white." For me, it was on account of my vernacular, diction and the articulation of my thoughts. Even though, then, I was the most RADICAL MILITANT PRO-BLACK SISTA EVER, rockin the fro and all lol, I was too white for them. I read books, I didn't fuck around and I was serious about my studies. (serious about my studies meaning, i liked to learn. school sucked majorly and taught us nothing so BOOKS and writing became my best friends). I was NOT the best student in grade school, i was bored out of my mind and didn't see an end of that until College. But that, reading and enjoying learning, is what "white" kids do. My own cousins would say "auntie's kids think they white" because of how we carried ourselves. When my sisters and I made it through our teen years without being "knocked up" by black men (focus on black men here because we are black women) we REALLY thought we were white and too good and better than everyone else who had fallen victim to the okey-doke.
These are just a few of the ways that the dysfunctional black cohort attempts to police those trying to do better into acceptance of sub-par bullshit. I would enter debates and disputes all the time with people, attempting to help them see how they have taken every gross white supremacist ideal of blackness and applied it as the very embodiment of black. so black women can't read and be black... we gotta be tryina be white. black women cannot speak the "kings english," we tryina be white. black WOMEN cannot decide to reserve their sexual enjoyment for worthy partners... we tryina be white and what chu tryina say about the brothers? and it goes on and on this horrible denigration of Black Sovereignty and Black Will Power BY and AGAINST black women.
Historically, and presently, black people are oppressed. Yep, "black dude" in the white house and all, our lives (as a collective) are NOT anything like those of the blacks over on Pennsylvania ave. Our oppression's as black women (and I am addressing black women primarily in my writings as I believe in the Sisterhood) are multi-faceted and intersecting. The legacy of slavery, the implications and IMPACT that has had on the collective black psyche will NEVER be explored, honored or even considered by the dominant narrative. We have wasted centuries of effort, energy and capital trying to get the dominant narrative to change. And in 2013 people, BLACK PEOPLE even, are STILL espousing horrifically racist views of African's in the Diaspora. I saw a black woman say that Alek Wek had GORILLA features and as such was NOT as beautiful as european featured Beyonce, just 2 days ago. It didn't shock me or surprise me. I expected to hear that from a black woman about her own reflection. THAT is whats disgusting... the EXPECTATION that black women espouse and embody the same racist sexism they LAMENT, is disgusting and a clear sign of someone who has been around too long and seen too much.
In July 2013 an Italian Senate VP (a white male named Roberto Caldroni) came under fire for likening the nations FIRST Black Female Cabinet Minister to an orangutan.
These anti black female attitudes have swept our planet and been fueled by and large by our own brothers. Our disconnect from our Black Origins and Black Godis power has borked our concept of community. We were NEVER a viral people the way that the dominant culture has become. On the contrary, we were always communal. We see the great issue with trying to be communal within a virus. Colonization itself was, I have seen, the result of our collective inability or disinterest at organization within a collective. We either saw no merit to a collective, or failed to successfully establish an hegemony that SERVES the interest of blacks throughout the diaspora. As it stands, our own brothers themselves see no value in the community or the Womb's who birth it. I identify their divorce from the yin/feminine/Godis as the endorsement of yang/hyper-masculine/patri-male-god usurpation of our position. They, as the fathers of civilization and creation, have created this anti-black female sentiment and have since endorsed it for their own financial gain and ends, black females be damned!
and so my POINT here is... when is the excuse and blame going to be done with? when are we going to INTROSPECT and get to the ROOT of the problem, vs all this fraudulent cord cutting we have been doing around racialized sexism and sexualized racism?
Because, as it stands, the blaming of the white man for all the ills of black people, the ills of black men against black women, has gotten us no where. It has gotten us into a dis-empowered state within collective global disenfranchisement. It has gotten us programs designed to keep us dependent on the dominant culture and narrative. It has NOT gotten us greater harmony nor community. Black males still run rampant in crime based activities in our communities with no regard to the mothers and children there. Black males are still shooting up our neighborhoods and sending our sons, and dawtas, to early graves with impunity. and Black women are permitting them to do so and enabling the maintenance of "thug" culture as the identity of black maleness at large with impunity.
The consistent blaming of the white man has not done thing ONE to improve our lot, change our circumstances, improve the way our sons view our daughters and improve relations between our God's and her Suns. so again, when is the excuse and blame going to be enough to exact the necessary changes within our community and family? WHEN?
