Ringside: Episode 43

This ain’t no party, this ain’t no disco,
This ain’t no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey,
I ain’t got time for that now – Life During Wartime, Talking Heads

Its crazy out there! Come inside, put up your checkered vans, pour a glass of absinthe and listen.

1. KKK, Neo nazis I know. What the heck is White Nationalism? Is it a growing dangerous group of ne’er-do-wells? or has the media magnified a rather minor group?
2. Antifa? Sounds good, but who do you define as fascists? Margaret Sanger?
3. Should we tear down statues that represent the side of the civil war that was ok with in humanizing slavery? or are they just lessons for history?
4. Jesus calls a canaanite woman a dog?! Was he sexist and racist? Was she an enabler? What’s this story all about?
5. Mandela said that racism is not inherent but learned. Is that true?

  1. Indeed, you have succinctly summarized the problem: “It is crazy out there.” That is why tonight I have turned off my 55 inch TV, which shows me the world as it is, in living color, in clear HD high definition. And the world is crazier than it was when my parents turned on our first TV in 1950, a 17 inch Westinghouse set hooked up to a roof antenna. Things, even life itself, seemed to be painted in black and white only. So now, for tonight, I am listening to classical music, calm and soothing, and the world outside can be as crazy as ever, and I will ignore it.


  2. You guys are wrong to state that there aren’t any prominent black-supremacist groups who believe that white people are racially inferior. Dead wrong.

    Google King Samir Shabazz, the leader of the New Black Panther Party’s Philadelphia Chapter. Google Khalid Abdul Muhammad who said, “There are no good crackers, and if you find one, kill him before he changes.”

    The Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League have identified numerous sects within the Black Israelites movement as black-supremacist. I ran in to some of these guys a while back outside of a Starbucks near the Del Paso Heights neighborhood of Sacramento (we used to live there). They were making Youtube videos from a laptop and ranting and raving about white imperialism, and how black people are the true Israelites. They almost got into a fight with some gang-banger that was walking by. I looked them up when I got home and was somewhat shocked by what I found.

    White nationalism gets more attention, because the media has a vested interest in trying to discredit Republicans by associating them with white nationalism. Black nationalism is probably just as big of a movement, and it’s equally as racist as white nationalism. This doesn’t fit the media’s narrative, though, so no one talks about it. That doesn’t mean, though, that black-supremacists don’t exist or that they aren’t dangerous.


  3. The Nation of Islam currently has an estimated membership of over 20,000 members.

    This is from a Wikipedia article on the Nation of Islam’s view regarding white people:

    Wallace Fard Muhammad taught that the original peoples of the world were black and that white people were a race of “devils” created by a scientist named Yakub (the Biblical and Qur’anic Jacob) on the Greek island of Patmos. According to the supreme wisdom lessons, Fard taught that whites were devils because of a culture of lies and murder that Yakub instituted on the island to ensure the creation of his new people. Fard taught that Yakub established a secret eugenics policy among the ruling class on the island. They were to kill all dark babies at birth and lie to the parents about the child’s fate. Further, they were to ensure that lighter-skinned children thrived in society. This policy encouraged a general preference for light skin. It was necessary to allow the process of grafting or making of a lighter-skinned race of people who would be different. The idea was that if the light-skinned people were allowed to mate freely with the dark-skinned people, the population would remain dark-skinned due to the genetic dominance of the original dark-skinned people. This process took approximately 600 years to produce a blond-haired, blue-eyed group of people. As they migrated into the mainland, they were greeted and welcomed by the indigenous people wherever they went. But according to the supreme wisdom lessons, they started making trouble among the righteous people, telling lies and causing confusion and mischief. This is when the ruling class of the Middle East decided to round up all the troublemakers they could find and march them out, over the hot desert sands, into the caves and hillsides of Europe. Elijah claimed that this history is well-known and preserved, and is ritualized or re-enacted within many fraternal organizations and secret societies. Fard taught that much of the savage ways of white people came from living in the caves and hillsides of Europe for over 2,000 years without divine revelation or knowledge of civilization.[37] The writings of Elijah Muhammad advise a student must learn that the white man is “Yacub’s grafted Devil” and “the Skunk of the planet Earth”.[38]
