Four centuries of white supremacy in Venezuela by those who identify their ancestors as European came to an end with the 1998 election of Hugo Chavez who won with the overwhelming support of the Mestizo majority. This turn away from white supremacy continues under Maduro, Chavez’ chosen successor.
In my interviews with Chavez for BBC beginning in 2002, he talked with humor about the fury of a white ruling class finding itself displaced by dark-skinned man who was so visibly “Negro e Indio,” a label he wore loudly and proudly.
Why did the poor love Chavez? (And love is not too strong a word.) As even the US CIA’s surprisingly honest Fact Book states:
“Social investment in Venezuela during the Chavez administration reduced poverty from nearly 50% in 1999 to about 27% in 2011, increased school enrollment, substantially decreased infant and child mortality, and improved access to potable water and sanitation through social investment.”
Ending the Punishment of Poverty: Supreme Court Rules Against High Fines & Civil Asset Forfeiture…Temporarily…If The Court Remains Conservative
I was a fly on the wall of the Maintain Racism / White Supremacy Club meeting yesterday when they were discussing the Supreme Court’s decision against excessive fees, fines and forfeitures as criminal penalties.
They said: We not gonna’ give up our “modern debtors’ prison scheme” that targets African Americans with arrests and fines and then locks them up when they can’t pay.
Maintain Racism / White Supremacy Club Meeting
Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote the majority opinion and announced it from the bench:
“The protection against excessive fines guards against abuses of government’s punitive or criminal law-enforcement authority,” Ginsburg wrote. Quoting in part from the court’s ruling in 2010 that Second Amendment gun rights apply to the states, she said, This safeguard, we hold, is ‘fundamental to our scheme of ordered liberty.’ “
Club members were mad as shit at Ginsburg…but that ain’t gonna’ last…
Then somebody stood up and said, well, Ginsburg may have given them Blacks a tool to cut off our money but we can always reverse that law you know…for us, laws were made to be broken… always remember. And, the Niggers don’t have no Racism / white Supremacy Watch Club, like they should…so they don’t even know Ginsburg did them a big favor.
And, by the time they find out (Clarence) Thomas will have resigned and given Trump another seat to fill on the court.
Isn’t that ironic, Thomas is on the court because Thurgood Marshall resigned at the right time, when Bush was in office vs Carter, remember?
Boy our System of Racism / white Supremacy is really working, it keeps those white liberals from going too far left. They maybe liberal but the still white…they ain’t gonna give-up their privilege for real.
And, Blacks who still think some of us are different, still haven’t learned…none of us are that different…to really share the power.
Can you imagine what trouble we’d be in if Marshall and Ginsburg had retired when Carter was in office? And, because they didn’t that #onedecisionnotto stands to reverse… in this the 21 century all their 20th century decisions the two made…combined.
Y’all remember, when in 1980, Carter administration officials pressured that nigger Marshal to resign before the Senate flipped from Democratic to Republican…and he refused…loud laughter. They asked Ginsburg to resign, too…didn’t they…anyway, she didn’t. https://bit.ly/2VpqU5F
Now, in 2019, the court, already conservative is guaranteed to become more so cause Clarence Thomas’ thinking about resigning for Trump can appoint another one of us. Now, that’s a good nigger…that Thomas…what did that nigger Fanon write…Black Skin White Mask…yeah, that’s Thomas…he really thinks he’s one of us and he’ll do anything to try and prove it. He’ll retire early for the System of Racism / white Supremacy.
Couldn’t get Marshall to do that…Ginsburg, either. But when she dies, and it won’t be long…just hope it’s before the 2020 election, cause then we’re guaranteed another Trump appointee…and we can reverse all the laws we want…laughs…louder and louder and louder.
We’ll be guaranteed a conservative court for decades…laughterrrrr….
That Nigger Marshall did us a real favor retiring in ’91 and the Nigger Thomas is about to do it again…thank our white God for the System of Racism / white Supremacy which keeps niggers unconscious, indoctrinated, and addicted to white thinking.
: Johnny Cochran was right talking about guest on his TV show, when he said ‘conservatives are always more prepared than the liberals’. Black people seem not to realize, the conservatives have a 20 year plan playbook…always in the background, ready to be implemented whenever the time is right. That’s what all those think tanks in DC are for.
The real solution for Blacks who’ve been socialized to act inferior to whites, is to recover from internalized inferiority and that’ll take a 12 Step Program to Recover from Internalized Inferiority…I heard a lady, Jackie Morgan’s writing a book about it…has rewritten the steps, traditions, everything. Heard it’ll be ready this year…2019. Man, I can’t wait.
: But in the mean time, the situation via the 2020 election is in the hands of Millennial and Generation Z’ers, because…1) they haven’t been indoctrinated by the System of Racism / white Supremacy as many years as previous generations, 2) they have experienced more diversity than previous generations, 3) they have been exposed more to the concept of ‘social justice’ than previous generations and 4) they have witnessed racism/white supremacy differently via Trumpism and understand the System of Racism / white Supremacy is just as much about class as race and thus, the white 1% ‘s about controlling poor whites as much as they’re about controlling people of color.
History to remember: “Most damaging for liberals were the Johnson blunder that led to the replacement of Chief Justice Warren by Chief Justice Burger; the replacement of Hugo Black by Lewis Powell (a corporate lawyer) in 1972; and that of Thurgood Marshall by Clarence Thomas in 1991. Justice Marshall had ignored some pleas to retire in the late 1970s, when Jimmy Carter was president, only to watch Republicans win the next three presidential elections.
Assemblywoman Shirley Weber Knows What to Ask For…Police Accountability Bill
Fear of Black Men No Longer An Excuse to Shoot
Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, D-San Diego, right, is hugged by Cephus Johnson, the uncle of Oscar Grant, who was killed by BART police n 2009. Weber announced a bill that would allow police to use deadly force only when there is no reasonable alternative.

Two bills introduced in the State Legislature, aim to bring California’s police use-of-force law into the 21stcentury and open a gap in the Blue Wall of silence surrounding investigations into police misconduct.
California lawmakers try once again to make it easier to prosecute police officers for killing civilians
A Good Analysis is Objective…Like a Debate…It’s About Making the Point With Facts vs Opinion
And, a good analysis is like a debate, remember the how the students in the Great Debaters won…with facts…not opinion?
Listening to the ‘debate’ on the Carl Nelson show yesterday evening on WOL 1450
AM on whether Kamala Harris was a suitable candidate…it was a good example of
“critical thinking” and the use of facts vs opinion in making a point.
They seemed not to know or realize that some of the most effective activists for Black people were not born in America, mixed race, and/or were even mulatto…like Marcus Garvey, Frederick Douglas, Minister Lous Farrakhan.
Critical thinking doesn’t/can’t use opinion (what one thinks or feels) to analyse and answer any question which was one of the lessons in the Great Debaters movie.
Other callers, made their point or argument with facts like her record not “…to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general…” [For she] “opposed them or stayed silent. Most troubling… Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors.”
In other word, Harris has not acted in the best interest of Black people which is an objective, critical reason to question her candidacy as worthy of our vote.
Critical thinking is the objective analysis of facts to form a judgment so to answer the question whether Kamala Harris is a worthy candidate thus her record needs to be analysed…facts gathered, reviewed then one can answer the question objectively.
Professor of Critical Thinking, Gerald Horne made the point that what’s important is 1) that all Black people are of African descent and thus are African. What he meant is, as Africans we can win any election voting as an ‘African voting block’. But, whites win if we let them divide us into numerous nationalities fighting among ourselves.
And, 2) it’s what Kamala Harris has done for Black people that counts…and the question we should be asking her and any/all other persons running for office…is…
….’what have you done for Black people’…what is your record helping Black people?
What is Harris’ answer to that question…what does the record say…that’s our answer to her worthiness.
Living, white Is Dangerous…Deadly, In Fact…Even for white People
Patriarchal Culture is Unhealthy
White people see the symptoms but are too patriarchal to see the problem, patriarchy. That’s why they don’t qualify to analyze any of America’s problem…only Black folk quality.
See the bottom of this collage, they say, “…Black and Hispanics, [despite being victims of the system of racism/white supremacy,] tend to have stronger family support, community support and church support to carry them through…rough times.”
This support system is cultural; it’s a benefit of Matriarchal culture…soooo, white folk need to start living matriarchally, is what those white women are saying in books like
Danger: Don’t Raise Your Black Boy by white Values…because…
American Psychological Association links ‘masculinity ideology’ to homophobia, misogyny…
Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax must not have been taught African history, as Molefi Asante would prescribe; must not have been raised via the principles of MAAT and Ubuntu; and must not have lived Black or Matriarchal culture which is gender-equal, according to Cheikh Anta Diop. Why, because as, WEB Dubois, is you only know white culture, you will think and act white.
So when we send our boys to public schools…which can only teach white patriarchal values, they learn to be ‘abusers’…to act like white men…just like Trump and Brett Kavanagh…examples of white peoples’ brightest and greatest… When our Black men are raised ‘white’ they act white…not realizing that when they get caught, unlike Gov. Ralph Northam, they, like Fairfax will most probably be impeached.
Just compare behavior and value system of Detroit Red, Eurocentric patriarchal values vs Malcolm X, Afrocentric matriarchal values.
Dr. Frances Welsing thinks it imperitive that Blacks understand the system of racism/white supremacy so as not to be confused about everything. And, understanding the difference between white patriarchal culture and Black African matriarchy culture, is paramount…because culture you’re raised in gives you your values.
Lesson 1 Culture: white vs Black
Part A Patriarchy
Patriarchy is a social system in which males hold primary power and predominate in roles of political leadership, moral authority, social privilege and control of property. Some patriarchal societies are also patrilineal, meaning that property and title are inherited by the male lineage.
For the first time in its 127-year history, the American Psychological Association admits that masculine ideology or patriarchy is bad…for men and women. It’s issuing guidelines because practitioners don’t know how to address or treat the condition — and the 36-page document features a warning.
“Traditional masculinity ideology has been shown to limit males’ psychological development, constrain their behavior, result in gender role strain and gender role conflict and negatively influence mental health and physical health,” the report warns.”
“The new “Guidelines for the Psychological Practice with Boys and Men” defines “masculinity ideology” as “a particular constellation of standards that have held sway over large segments of the population, including: anti-femininity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure, risk, and violence.” The report also links this ideology to homophobia, bullying and sexual harassment.”
WARNING: This is a white man’s condition that Black men get when raised ‘white’ or via patriarchal culture vs Black African matriarchal culture…primarily via school and the white man’s media (Tylor Perry vs Spike Lee).
TO BE SAVED: Black people need to start living their Matriarchal culture which teaches the values of Ubuntu and the principles of MAAT or just basic respect… for everybody!!
Part B Matriarchy
Societies of Peace: Matriarchies Past, Present, and Future
African Matriarchal culture is the 1st culture, the oldest culture…under which the world has existed 200,000 years, and, which still exist in parts of Africa. Violent Patriarchy wouldn’t have allowed the world to exist 200,000 years. Just within the white man’s 8,000 years of existence, there’s been constant conflict, the creation of the atom bomb, global warming, the oceans and even, space is full of junk, etc.
See below, even whites consider Matriarchy as societies of peace:
White women even want to make it a field of study:
Matriarachy is a culture, not dominated by women, but descent is through women’s lenage…see below, Diop’s ,Two Cradle Theory, a brief description of both cultures.
If The Grass Roots Aren’t Prepared To Move Into Positions of Power, the Middle Class…Mulattoes Will
And… Nothing Will Change
My opinion, since the ‘grass roots’ have not prepared (studied) people to be politically literate to represent them, a Kamala Harris is better than any white person.
But historically, mulattoes, if they haven’t been taught African history or taught a sence of social justice, they tend to think, act, and govern as whites do.
But, let’s be clear…Kamala Harris didn’t live an ‘inner city’ life…and though, non-white, lived a middle class existence…her mother is Indian, see her mother’s sister below and her father’s mother is Tamil Indian and his father is Jamaica.
But to really understand the role of the middle class who’re often mulattoes…because they’re often granted more privilege (more education, better jobs, higher positions) than ‘darker’ non-whites and, because they’re asked to support the system of racism/white supremacy for the privilege…you need to read Fanon, Chancelor Williams, and/or just google mulattoe, buffer group…
