Some of you who claim to be "pro-black" or "conscious" are always looking for a fight, but constantly pick the wrong folks to fight. I'll fight you, because I don't back down from bullies or fools, and in my book many of you "Hoteps" qualify as both by trying to constantly fight Black Christians over our faith. I've finally accepted that we'll never have a true Black CommUNITY, because Black folks like you will never allow it.

One thing President Obama's presidency showed me is that the United States of America loves to hate, but hates to love; especially if you don't have the "complexion for the connection".

This is for "BLACK FOLKS ONLY": Some of our people in the Black Community who may on occasion be guilty of "cooning" aren't always your typical "coons" & sellouts. We can't be so quick to write them off and never allow them a way back into good standing without examining ourselves first. At times we're the ones guilty of selling them out, and driving them away into seeking acceptance from other communities because we won't accept them in ours as they are for being themselves.

Sadly, crazy Donald Trump was right; this election is rigged. 'Jill Stein & Ajamu Baraka' aren't included on the ballot in every state even though they won the Green Party's primary unanimously. Your votes mean nothing without the money to back them up, and the Black Community is broke, divided, and misguided; which is why our votes don't mean diddly, because we give our money to everyone else except us. Those with the money can buy political power (politicians & judges) to overturn what you vote for.

To all the bigots, passive racists, blatant racists, white supremacists, false patriots, and coons who keep telling Black folks in the United States of America to leave the country or go back to Africa because we protest against injustices you ignore, and because we refuse to honor the American national anthem written by a white supremacist slave owner, or because we refuse to salute the American flag that represents something America doesn't practice: WE AREN'T GOING ANYWHERE!

To my "Black" Muslim, Kemetic, Hebrew, and Atheist brethren in general: Until you all learn how to leave "religion" out of the equation in conversation about Black Empowerment you'll never help Black people, and our community will never be united. Religion is deeply personal and we're too emotional. Let your religion govern your behavior. Two-thirds of the Black Community is Christian by "choice", not by brainwashing. When you publicly attack people's faith, as you often do to Christians, you alienate more than half of the community you claim to love. The "trap" you fall into is offending your own in such an unwise way. Because of you I've just about given up on ever achieving a unified Black Community. The greatest dividers of the community are Black People like you. The government doesn't need a new "CoIntelPro Program" because they have you.

It is idolatry and near fanaticism to worship any flag or national anthem the way so many Americans have been brainwashed to do and believe in. It reminds me of how Black folks blindly follow the Democratic party, or even worst the Republican party. When did sporting events become sacred services for the flag & anthem at the kickoff, jump ball, or medal presentation? Nobody has to stand or hold their hands over their hearts if they don't want too. Folks "died" for that "right" also. I honor all my fallen brethren and those who served in my own way, but I support anyone's right not to stand for the national anthem, and don't see it as being disrespectful. One person sees the flag as a symbol of freedom while another sees it as a symbol of blistering injustice and abuse.

BLACK COMMUNITY: Christianity is not nor ever has been the Black Community's problem, but "White Supremacy" and division among us is our problem; not religion. White Supremacists don't have the same kinds of divisive discussions Black People have when it comes to oppressing us, religion, or their rights and protection, but we can't seem to help ourselves and just stay more divided by offending each other on a regular basis while going nowhere over these same issues. How is it they can put aside their differences to conquer you but you can't stop insulting your own people because of our differing beliefs? That's what you need to wake up from. Every white person is not out to harm you, and every Black person is not for you.

I firmly believe we have "Pied Piper Syndrome" in the Black Community. We seem to love being led by the sound of charismatic voices regardless of how many lies they tell or how much substance they lack. We do the same thing with music and bump to the funky beat while the empty words mesmerize our minds into a tailspin of stupidity, but "that's yo jam!" Any philosophy, religion, ideology, or otherwise can be seen as lies or false if those proclaiming it are living in abject hypocrisy and stark contradiction to it. Everyone isn't living foul or running game, but the good ones who are living honest and doing righteously don't seem to often get the same respect as the bad ones folks seem to prefer just like worthless lyrics covered over by a nice beat. Like mice hypnotized by the sound of the melody many of us blindly follow these pro-Black "Pied Pipers" going nowhere but in circles while feeding their narcissistic egos, funding their financial schemes, and making excuses for every wrong they do or lie they tell.

ATTENTION: There is no racism in America. It's a perfect Utopian society. The Native Americans who were here first were vagrants and loitering. The land was open for the taking, but being fair businessmen the colonists paid for it; even though they paid practically nothing by creating contracts with native folks they knew couldn’t read or understood their language. This magnificent government of the United States of Amerikkka kindly gave them reservations on the land that was already theirs so they could one day build casinos which the government keeps trying to tax even against their own laws. All America wants is the rest of their dignity. That's not a lot to ask considering all they've "given", or is it "taken"? I can't recall. Anyways...

Why is there so much onus on the Black Community to do more to clean up its neighborhoods when we don't own most of where we live or are given equal opportunity? That same expectation isn't put on White Communities. Our taxes pay for lawful protection too but we get government terrorism and police brutality too often instead. When we say "Black Lives Matter" a chorus of folks jump up in opposition to say, "All Lives Matter." If so, then why don't they also stand up against the injustices done to Black People as part of the "ALL"? I see folks going after the Black Lives Matter movement to address all the crime in the Black Community and I once agreed with their point to an extent, but have since changed my position. What is missed or ignored by the critics is all the current civil unrest brought on by the continuous killing of Black Men by police officers, and no fairness of justice being given even when the incident is caught on camera. I mean, even 25-years after the "Rodney King" taped beating by LAPD officers, who were subsequently acquitted, and which led to the L.A. Riots we're still that dumb?!

Trying to attack an individual's religious choice during a major group crisis IS THE WRONG WAY TO UNITE THE BLACK COMMUNITY! The manner in which the above pictured book is most often presented to Black People is as an attack on the Christian faith and Black Christians under the false pretense to liberate or enlighten them on what is erroneously called "the white man's religion." It's great for historical research to know how white people thought during slavery, but it is not used for historical research as much as it is used to try discrediting Black Christians in particular for being Christians and to try discouraging any others from becoming Christians. These same types of things cause divisions among those who are trying to unite within the Black Community, and can be fatal to any attempt at "Black Unity". Again, THIS IS THE WRONG WAY TO UNITE THE BLACK COMMUNITY! You will fail, and fail completely while we remain in the same conditions as a people together regardless of your beliefs.

Before I take a short break to collect myself from the stress of the recent tragic events in our nation I need to say this: "WHITE PEOPLE", I spend more time addressing Black People because of my common familial bond with them, but I don't trust the "White Community" in general to do anything to stop racism or stand beside the Black Community in fighting against injustice. There are some exceptional individuals who do stand for what is right regardless of skin color, and I love them irrespective of color because they respect & love me the same way so I'm not talking about them. However, they are a very small few who's voices get drowned out by the majority of you who choose to say and do nothing, or who choose to speak out against the victims of injustice & brutality. You blame us for the evil done to us but then cry and get outraged over the deaths of gorillas & lions while expecting us to cry for your children?! In response to your hypocrisy most Black folks feel like, "Hell naw to the naw naw naw!"

Whenever I've made statements about the necessity of unity in the Black Community for our advancement and to effectively combat the injustices against us the number one question that gets asked in response is, "HOW do we make this happen?" Often it seems as if I can hear the frustration, anger, and sadness behind the question being asked because I've felt the same way. In spite of all our many great achievements a "unified Black Community" is the one thing we have yet to accomplish, and it is the main thing those who oppose us fear most. Based on my experience it seems impossible, but nonetheless we have to make it happen because our survival depends on it. Until we get together we'll never be able to get it together. Without unity we can't save our community. We cannot face and overcome the regular crushing brutality and injustice against us as a divided people. So, "How do we unite?" Here's my answer to the question (take it or leave it):

It's not easy being a Black Christian with a revolutionary mindset. You are called a racist by insecure & insensitive white folks on a regular basis. You are called an "agent", "Uncle Tom", "coon", "brainwashed" or worst by other non-Christian Black People. You are criticized for not being enough of a Christian and too Black by other Black Christians. Your choices become either sellout and start buck dancing for white folks, or renounce your faith for Non-Christian black folks, or act like your skin color is "clear" and be willfully blind to the social injustices against Black People in order to please black church folks. Well, I'm not doing any of that so you can forget it. I'm going to be who I am whether you like it or not.

The violence in the world is never a surprise to me anymore, but the insensitivity to the suffering of others who are victims of it by those who claim to be morally upright or godly is always a disappointment. "Sodom and Gomorrah" represent actual places that were subjected to divine judgment, but for much more than what most folks zero in on that makes their story famous. Sexual perversion was not the only abomination Sodom & Gomorrah was guilty of, nor is it the first thing mentioned when God Almighty gives his reasons for why he destroyed them in judgment. Sadly, The Most High couldn't even find ten righteous people for whom he would have spared the whole for. History has a funny way of repeating itself if we're not careful, and we're even worst.

I tried to watch the new "ROOTS" miniseries remake but I can't watch the whole thing and don't like certain subtle messages in it. I don't knock anybody else for watching it, but I just can't do it. I still haven't made it through "12 Years A Slave" and probably never will because these movies anger me deeply no matter how historically accurate they may be. I'm aware of the true history and brutality of Western Colonial slavery, but no amount of stories made into movies will ever get the descendants of the architects of these European colonial powers who colonized & enslaved others to admit the criminality of it and set things right that their ancestors made wrong.

AN OPEN LETTER TO (SOME) CHRISTIAN PREACHERS: I haven't said much on ministry or Church issues lately but recently a few folks who call themselves by these various titles of some kind of preacher have gotten my attention because they have been up to no good with their same old self promotion without any humility, so this is directly to them. There's no need to comment in their defense unless you follow them and feel you need to defend your own bad decision for your seared consciousness sake because you're convicted, yet trying to justify your bad judgment and lack of discernment in supporting them. No matter how sincere a person started out what makes them false now is the fact they continue to teach false doctrine while leading a false lifestyle. Don't let fame or acclaim fool you or you're just a fool being easily fooled; which is what they count on. Now on to these preachers...

Folks in the U.S. are some of the most stupid, offensive, and clueless as it relates to the global community. How many countries do you know that celebrate other countries Independence days on such a large scale? Does Mexico celebrate "The 4th of July"? NO! Yet, in the United States we're celebrating "Cinco de Mayo" more & more every year and its becoming a huge marketing vehicle for American businesses to capitalize on. Just listen to these politicians talking about building a massive wall to keep Mexicans out. They don't want them in but will allow their culture in because they can make money off of it by exploiting them. I have nothing against Mexico or Mexicans but this is the United States of America not Mexico and the government of this country is not their friend but has always been their enemy. Just check the history and see for yourself.

QUESTION: If you had a family member or close friend who got robbed, swindled, raped, or molested and the perpetrator got caught but they were a very important person, would that change your opinion of the offender's guilt? Would you prefer forgiving the offender, restoring them and getting them some help over defending & helping their victim? What if it was your child, mother, sister, father, brother, spouse or other relation they robbed, swindled, raped, or molested? How important does the victim have to be in your eyes in order to get equal or greater consideration than their high profile assailant or V.I.P offender? It doesn't require knowing God or being religious to do what is right, but doing what is right in the face of wrong is always of God. Wrong is wrong and right is right no matter who is doing it, but there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

I write and teach because those are my gifts. People today seem to prefer visual stimulation such as videos & television over reading & research because we're more entertainment oriented than intellectually interested. They often make videos their main resources for what they consider infallible scholarly or spiritual information. Great things do often come by that medium, but the scholars you parrot and meme also wrote books and research papers to be read. The old saying of, "If you want to hide something from a (black) person just write it down or put it in a book", didn't come about without merit. It's not actually talking about a complete absence of reading but an apathy towards investigative study in one's reading to discern truth.

As I talk to my own adult children and experience the world through their eyes while also watching their children grow up before me, I see things much differently than I have before. The same as I say to Black men about Black women I say also to Black women about Black men: "Please don't give up on Black men because the ones you met so far were a disappointment." A good man doesn't always start out as a good man, but he often becomes one after making many foolish mistakes. The insensitive axe doesn't understand the pain it causes the tree.

I'm not one for "New Year's Resolutions" anymore or yearly "prophetic slogans", but I will share my personal focus for 2016 and beyond: "Stay in your lane, run your race at your pace, do what's right even if it seems you're the only one doing it, teach as you were taught & gifted to do because that's your commission in this life, and let your dreams become words to communicate & translate into blueprints & plans for the actions you take towards the things you create." You must learn to fully accept who you are with the gifts and purpose you've been given whether others accept it or not.

I've never had a problem with the name "Jesus". I know how old the letter "J" is, and its use as it pertains to the name of "Jesus" is not a controversy or conspiracy as some others believe. "Jesus" is a transliteration of the Greek "Iesous" which is a transliteration of the Hebrew "Yehoshua" for "Joshua" or the Aramaic "Yeshua" depending on the dialect and accent one uses. The Greek alphabet does not have a "Y", and the "I" in Greek is the closest equivalent to the Aramaic or Hebrew "Y". "SOUS" (not "Zeus" as falsely taught by some) is the transliteration of the "SHUA" sound. When translating languages you cannot simply make people easily change their accent to pronounce words with letters they don't have in their alphabet. This is true even when speaking a different dialect of the same language.
Dear BLACK PEOPLE, in the year of 2016 please stop doing commercials or other publicity that makes you looks like happy slaves cooning and buck dancing for chicken, income tax refunds, hair care products, and anything from fast food restaurants that is bad for your health. Let's stop the violence, murder, abuse, parental neglect, male chauvinist misogyny of our women, ultra-feminist disrespect of our men, and crime against one another. Stop the incessant debates over religion that further divide us to try proving which is more "pro-black". You can research and decide for yourselves what you want to believe in without insulting everyone else because their freewill choice doesn't agree with yours. Religion, philosophy, and science aren't the problem but people are the problem regardless of their color or ethnicity. The Black Community too often deifies white supremacy, and sounds as if it suffers from an inferiority complex that is massaged by pro-black revolutionary tirades which are ultimately nothing more than venting.
