Who Thought The Cartoon Was Just A Cartoon?

Racism Is Not Dead

Racism Is Not Dead







In spite of all of the progress that we have made as a nation, there are still a significant number of racists who think that the whole world is 1800’s south. This point of view is based on the success, comfort, and progress of a few ignorant people, who thank GOD, is now a minority.


And they miss this world so much that they will say or do anything to get back to it.


It is not, nor will it ever be back, unless we experience a run on stupid black people who think that these types of insults and attacks on the character of our First African American President, and the people of all races who support the change that he is attempting to bring to this country, is not leading up to something more then just posting a funny cartoon.


There is more to it then just a cartoon or a joke.


Did you hear the one about the new black guy in town?


A black man arrives in a new town and asks a white man,” where do all of the black people hang out round here?”


The white man says, “right over there on that tree.”


Just a joke?


Ha Ha My Ass!


Millions of black human beings were subjected to this cruel and mercilessness death simply because some people had a beef with them for the way that GOD made them.


So to all the ignorant, sleep, uninformed, and socially unwire black people, (and white people), who think that this is just a cartoon, let me just tell you, that somewhere, right now, there is more the one sick racist individual who has taken that cartoon, (which depicted a black monkey being shot to death), a monkey that no doubt represents President Obama, and he or she has internalized this cartoon, and has at least a thought, about doing something stupid to the president, and if he or she thinks about it long enough, this thought will blossom into a plan of action.


And to the many white racists who helped this issue sell out by purchasing as many copies as they could, because they think that it is just a funny cartoon; fine!


Your opinions, thoughts, and actions in support of this racist attack masked in humor, will never be enough to destroy the progress of a nation.


These are the kinds of subliminal messages that the media in this country have used for hundreds of years to control the masses.


This cartoon in no exception.


One thing I do agree with is “Freedom of Speech”, so they do have a right to post it, and we do have a right to respond to it, like the majority of the common sense people in this country, (of all races) has done.


I think that we needed to respond to this message of hate as we did.


But I also still maintain that the way that a few racist in high and low places treat us, is not nearly as important as how we as African Americans treat each other.


So to all who are still sleep, and continue to poison our neighborhoods, kill our sisters and brothers, (or anyone who is not a threat to you in any way), disrespect our woman, and neglect our children, you need to be more concerned about that.


Because this will be the true measure of our success or failure as a race of people, not what a few idiotic racist, who will always exists, say or think of us.


It is time for all African Americans, and other races of people who want peace, freedom and equality for the generations to come, to remain alert if you are already alert, or to work hard to become alert if you are not.


Do not let this minority of idiots pull the wool over your eyes, even if they do try to disguise it as a joke.


The old folks used to always say that “many true words are spoken in a joke”’ everyone needs to pay attention.

Of course The Cartoon Is A Racist Attack Against President Obama

Racism Is Not Dead

Racism Is Not Dead

The cartoon in today’s issue of the New York Post that depicts 2 white policeman killing a black chimpanzee, and then making the statement, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill”, is a direct attack on President Obama, the black race, white people who want a better country that features fairness and equality for all, (which is what the hell the United States of America is supposed to be all about anyway), and all people who are in the process of trying to heal and unify this nation. The statements made against Reverend Al Sharpton in defense of this article are also an insult on the intelligence of all black people who have not sold out in favor of the enemy. And by enemy, I am not referring to any particular race of people, but to those who cannot, or will not recognize this racist attack against our president for what it is; a racist attack against our president, and all the people who’s skin tone matches his. I predicted this as soon as I heard the story about the police having to shoot the out of control chimpanzee. However, I did not think that it would take the form of an attack against the president and his new stimulus bill which passed in spite of the republicans insistence on playing business as usual politics. The newspaper is trying to say that the black chimpanzee being shot represents Washington DC, and not President Obama. However, the only people who believe this crap are the white people who are racists, and the black people who are oblivious to the fact that our race is, and has always been under attack by those who still believe that we are apes, gorillas, chimpanzees and other inhuman creatures. This is why I continue to warn everyone who does not know, and remind those who do, that not only are we as a race of people under constant attack, but that all Americans of all races who know that it is wrong to hate or destroy people because of the way that GOD made them are also under attack. In other words, anyone who is devoted to making this country be the country that is was truly meant to be, is a target. And President Obama, his team, and all those who support him are the bulls eye. This is why we must not let our support for the president end just because November 4th 2008 has passed. The fight for freedom and equality for all Americans in this country based on who they are, and how they conduct themselves and contribute to society as citizens of this great nation, instead of the form in which GOD decided to make them; is not a fight that we can afford to lose. I’ll say it again as I have said many times before; the election of President Obama was just the first step in many that we need to repeat constantly in order to make this country work like it is supposed to work, (not just for the rich and the powerful), but for the poor people who are capable and willing to do better, and those who cannot because of circumstance beyond their control, the working class, and yes, even those who are well off. And to all of you who are well off, you need to pay particular attention to what is happening to your wealth these days. Because if the current economic situation does not convince you that you need the people who are lower on the totem pole to lift you up, then you will continue to lose your businesses, your corporate positions, and your generational wealth. Why? Because the Average Working American Citizen is your foundation, and no structure can raise up without it’s foundation. Yes the cartoon is a racist attack masked with humor. But what amazes me is the fact that so many people are shocked after all of these hundreds of years. Racism is not going to go away because we have our first African American President. So don’t expect it to. What is important is not that racism still exists, but it’s what all of the people who despise it do about it. It is very important that we demonstrate to the world that we are outraged about the injustices that continue to effect us all in this country. But the most important thing for us to remember is that it is not how they treat us that counts at this point in history, it is how we treat each other. So please be mindful of that. And to Reverend Al Sharpton, you did a great job in gathering a cross section of all different races and classes of people for a consensus on what this cartoon really meant, and how distasteful it was to many Americans, not just African Americans. The are only calling you a publicity seeker, because you are drawing attention to this and other situations that should not be occurring in America in the new millennium. Keep up the good work.
