Only The 'Negro Leagues' Can We Celebrate -- Black Members of Birmingham City Council Wield Political Authority, Black-Power Style

It was never about equality. 

It was never about being judged by "the content of character."


It was about something else. 

Remember what voting actually represents, as Robert Heinlein outlined it succinctly in Starship Troopers
We all live under the shadow of this hegemon
To vote is to wield authority; it is the supreme authority from which all other authority derives—such as mine to make your lives miserable once a day. Force if you will!—the franchise is force, naked and raw, the Power of the Rods and the Ax. Whether it is exerted by ten men or by ten billion, political authority is force.
This is why Eric Holder and Barack Obama happily entertained Al Sharpton at the White House and pledged to do everything possible to strengthen the Voting Rights Act

This is what the victory in Birmingham back in 1963 represents and why the fight must endure, so Black-Run America (BRA) can continue to wield authority. 



Naked and raw. 

The supreme authority. 

In 2013 Birmingham, we see the end result of this authority play out, where elected council members argue against financially supporting an Indy Grand Prix event for the lack of 'black faces' [Birmingham mayor/council battle of wills kills million-dollar Barber Indy racing contract, Birmingham News, March 26, 2013]. 
It's a 74 percent black city, so those who elect these black individuals to represent their interests must be satisfied, right? 
Well, a recent city council debate (seven of the nine members are black) in Birmingham powerfully showcased Heinlein's axiom, when black council members voiced their opposition to honoring the white Southern League in a proposed museum for the Negro Leagues. [What's in a name? Apparently a lot when it comes to Birmingham's baseball museum, Birmingham News, July 31, 2013]:
The name and scope of Birmingham's planned baseball museum stirred heated debate and speeches on history and racial pride during today's Birmingham City Council meeting.
Controversy erupted over the proposal to add 'Southern League' to the title of the upcoming Negro League baseball museum. It wasn't the $252,000 amount on the agenda, but rather the working title of the project that lit fireworks on the dais.
The facility in its last conception was deemed a Negro League museum, but the listing from Mayor William Bell appeared to reintroduce the Southern League back into project.
Bell said the name was just a working title.
"That's the operational name," he said. "That's not going to be the permanent name."
Bell's staff as early as last fall said the museum would pay special homage to Birmingham's history in the Negro Leagues, but not necessarily exclude all of the Negro Leagues.
However, that wasn't enough for several council members including Council President Roderick Royal, Lashunda Scales and Steven Hoyt, who said the working title brings a changed focus for Birmingham's museum. They said Bell was wrong to renege on the city's commitment to creating a shrine to the Negro Leagues.
Royal, who early on advocated the Negro league museum concept, said the city should hold to its approved scope.
"I'm just saying. Let's just keep our commitment," he said. "I'm not trying to fan flames. I'm just saying that's what we committed and we need to honor that commitment."
Councilwoman Valerie Abbott said the group should cut the mayor "some slack" when it came to the name, after Bell said the council would be involved.
That spurred both a defense of the mayor from Councilman Jay Roberson and more criticism from Hoyt. Roberson said the city was correct in taking time to study the project.
"We have to be open-minded in that process," Roberson said.
Hoyt countered, saying city leaders should be ashamed for shying away from the Negro League concept. He described the inequities of the past and said the black players deserved the honor.
"This is Birmingham," Hoyt said. "I don't know how we correct the wrong until we somehow understand it's ok to celebrate black history in this city."
Today's debate reawakened an old debate going back four years.
Under former Mayor Larry Langford, the proposed museum was set to honor the Negro Leagues and Southern League and be built at Rickwood Field.
That concept came after an original plan for a Negro League museum at the site was expanded to include Birmingham's entire baseball history.
Some former Negro Leagues players then advocated building a museum downtown in the Civil Rights district rather than Rickwood, which was segregated at the time of the dual leagues.
Current Mayor Bell then proposed building the facility next to the new Barons stadium near Railroad Park. The concept, with council pressure, was also narrowed back to the Negro Leagues.
Both Hoyt and Scales called it shameful that a black mayor and a majority black council had to debate the issue.
"It's so unfortunate that you're looked upon as being a racist when you celebrate your race," Scales said. "Charity begins at home."
Finally, Bell distanced himself from the idea of expanding the museum, saying the joint name was simply an old working title.
The fight ended with a history lesson from Roberson and a motion that the working title be changed to the "Negro Southern League," taking the 'and' from the masthead to solidify the commitment to a singular league.

Birmingham is a city where it's city council passed an emergency bill banning the issuing of permits to new title loan, pawn shops, and check cashing stores, because these businesses represented the only growth industry in the 74 percent black city [Birmingham City Council extends ban on new payday lending, title pawn shops, Birmingham News, 10-16-12].



Naked and raw. 

The supreme authority. 

Used to stop the growth of payday loan stores, because the black residents of Birmingham lack future-time orientation. 

As do those elected to power in the city. 

Fitting, this year celebrates "50 Years Forward" for Birmingham -- a liberation of the city from the hands of evil white rule, to enlightened, noble, and inclusive black rule

THEY SAY IT’S ALWAYS DARKEST BEFORE THE DAWN. And this has never been more true than in 1963, the height of the Civil Rights Movement. The events of that year revealed the best and worst humanity had to offer, as some of Birmingham’s most courageous citizens fought to release their city from the terrible grip of hatred and discrimination. 
Now, 50 Years Forward, we’re coming together to commemorate “The Movement That Changed The World.” And to celebrate those who sacrificed so much to make it happen, armed with nothing more than hope in their hearts, a prayer on their lips, and the winds of freedom at their backs.
The state of Birmingham in 2013, and the actions of those elected officials in the city council represents the exercising of political force and authority few people wish to acknowledge. 

Black power, pure and simple. "50 Years Forward" is merely the celebration of the enshrining into law universal black power and white acquiescence to this concept.  

White dispossession. 

Let's leave on another Starship Troopers quote, shall we?:
“There is an old song which asserts ‘the best things in life are free.’ Not true! Utterly false! This was the tragic fallacy which brought on the decadence and collapse of the democracies of the twentieth century; those noble experiments failed because the people had been led to believe that they could simply vote for whatever they wanted . . . and get it, without toil, without sweat, without tears.

The civil rights movement wasn't as much about racial "fairness" as it was about mulatto blacks displacing whites as the rulers of blue gum blacks.

Kansas City 'negroes' are having a fit about Birmingham making a competing Negro Leagues museum which shows you how much demand there is for such a thing in the U.S. Every time the one in KC is in the news, there's about 3-5 white people staring at the displays and that's it. But the museums will buy a few tricked out Cadillacs for some connected 'negros' and that's all that matters. We moved our family out of the city and spend most of our money elsewhere just so we don't support that stuff. I suggest all white people do the same.

The main white population in Birmingham is the old and poor people trapped in East Lake and Center Point neighborhoods which are project areas. Plus a few white homosexuals living in South Side near the fountain. Every other white person is still "claimed" by the city in their MSA count, Metropolitan Statistical Area. The city wants to partner with the suburbs on many projects- like city bus service. Birmingham kept raising the fees for their buses to go into the satellite well heeled white communities to the point they pulled out and now have to make other arrangements for their maids and yard people. The local newspaper went to 3 day a week printing of their rag. It became a tiresome litany of "no death penalty", "white privilege" tripe and such. I laughed the day the idiots scrambled for work. Why don't they go back north and preach that shit to someone who gives a fuck! White privilege my ass, it's called acting like people are supposed to act. Obey the laws, show some civility, be responsible, etc. The ones claimnig undue privilege lack the knowledge or skills to participate in such a system, so the system must be flawed. One young man came to the front desk seeking temporary or part time work. I happen to overhear his request,"Ya need sum crimma hep?". I had to get a nearby black to translate "Do you need any Christmas help?". Yeah, he has a great future in the prison he's probably in today.

Here's a link telling the reason of the true demise of Detroit:

The 16st street church bombing was a cowardly and hateful event in the 1960. Jump forward a few decades and one of hte county commissioners responsible for Jefferson county filing for bankruptcy due to political corruption was Chris McNair. His daughter was killed in the bombing. As he was in his 80s there was a mighty effort to have him avoid serving any time for his role as a thief in office. When they decided to prosecute the men accused of bombing that church, one was 74 years old and they convicted him and he died in prison. The symbolism of showing white guilt atonement and black power was too strong. From 2011-" Fast-forward to now, and McNair is an 85-year-old man who in June began serving a five-year sentence at a federal penitentiary in Illinois for public corruption. At his age, it could be a life sentence unless President Obama intervenes and pardons him, which I and so many others who knew McNair pray will happen.

How did this man, who nearly 50 years ago became a symbol for dignity and graciousness in the face of disaster, fall so far from grace? His accusers will say it was greed, though McNair appeared to plead naivete. The old man told prosecutors he didn't mean to break the law and didn't understand that he had.

The former member of the Jefferson County Commission was convicted by a federal jury in 2006 of bribery and conspiracy involving a $3.2 billion construction project to repair the county's sewer system. In all, 21 people were convicted or pleaded guilty in the case.

McNair was accused of taking nearly $1 million from companies that won bids to do the work, including $225,000 to expand his photography studio and add a memorial room, $320,000 to build a lake house in Arkansas, and $410,000 in cash.

McNair contended that whatever he took from the contractors were not bribes, but gifts from friends. His daughter Lisa tried to explain further to another Birmingham expatriate I know, Diane McWhorter, author of Carry Me Home, who recently wrote about the case for the New York Times.

Lisa McNair said the white men gave her father gifts because they felt guilty for the McNairs' tragedy after seeing the local premiere of Spike Lee's 1997 documentary on the church bombing, Four Little Girls."

I know, right.


Well, last night, while watching one of the cable TV movies, I finally saw that revolting Cheerio ad with the race traitor white bitch, the half-breed deformed daughter and negro/nigerian dad on the couch.

Absolutely revolting. But, it got me to thinking.

Why? Just why was that ad made and put on TV? It was intentional. A group of people intentionally decided on that race mixing message since nothing like that is NOT intentional. I have a brother in the movie business who flat out tells me how they cast such ads and shows.

No doubt a large segment of Whites hate it. Maybe a few really like it, but the makers of Cheerio will get more negative than positive. Or, put it another way. They would never, ever, put out an ad that infuriated a significant portion of Asian, african or mexican viwers, right? So why this towards the White viewer?

They don't care if they lose money. Remember, the bankers create their own money. It is printed and loaned to their friends at will and they have been doing this for 100 years.

Just have their "group" buy up the corporations, media, text book printers, movie companies and advertising agencies. Then, begin to push and shove race mixing on the Whites. Especially White women and White girls. Get them to love the black man and hate the White man.

This began in the 50's and 60's and is just accelerating. Remember that movie: "Guess who coming to diner"?

It is working. What do they care if the don't make any money. They don't have to. They control the world's banks. They control the money.

Yes, I believe in the Grand Conspiracy since I know what I see and I see what I know. They are making their final move and in the next year it will be so very obvious us to those of use with eyes and ears.

It is coming and we all need to prepare for war.

Negroes leave DC white man with permanent brain damage

Just another in an endless series of these attacks. This guy was a fool, wandering around capital hill in the middle of the night. But the situation has gotten much worse. Fifteen years ago he would have been robbed. Now you get savagely beaten. This negro used a baseball bat, taking a full swing to the back of this guy's head. It's getting worse, they're more viciously violent and blood thirsty. Negroes are satanic, they're evil. A black soulless evil that enjoys inflicting pain on any human it can. I can only suspect that before the attack this guy saw negroes as poor, unfortunate people, uneducated and discriminated against. I'd like to know what he thinks of them now.

Yes. Jay, I once had the same opinion, having been raised by liberals. After college I lived in several majority-black countries, but found the people I met to be decent. I knew that there were idiots lurking somewhere, so I was careful. I had a good time with the blacks I hung out with.
Fast forward to now, I have endured a brutal assault and now realize that purchasing a home in a black neighborhood (not where I got assaulted, which was lily white) was perhaps one of the most foolish things I ever did. At least I got out of there ahead of the real estate crash I saw coming and before anyone messed with me.
I now can see clearly. (I can see clearly now, the Lib is gone... I can see all dumb nogs for what they are..." ) I suffer advanced negro fatigue and I am so happy to have this site. Thanks Paul. Thanks all fellow commenters.
Get well, TC. Watch your six until your countrymen are allowed or take by force the right to maintain order.

screw em all and let em spend what little tax revenue that shithole actually receives, once the place blows up and they've got no services then they can all take a dump in the negro baseball museum, animals in cheap suits, can't wait for the day they're all gone or hopefully dead.

Your question is one which really is profoundly difficult to answer. The late Larry Auster and others wrestled with it for a long time - with only partial answers. There is really nothing quite like it in world history. What you're describing could not have happened a hundred years ago. The ceaseless propaganda and non-stop gaslighting over the past century have produced a type of spiritual and psychological malaise in the majority of whites, but that hardly seems adequate to explain the whole thing. The rigged economic system coupled with bribery, corruption and sell-outs have done tremendous damage as well. Even in South Africa, where prancing members groid puppet-regime openly boast of exterminating them, the majority of the remaining whites continue to go along with the plan, denying what is in front of their 'lying eyes', paying their taxes and obeying their odious laws. Even though more awaken every day, the overall number of those who can see is still quite small.

I'm tellin you right now, anything to enshrine black power will be built regardless of what jobs it brings or what good it truly does. It's all about dem spinnin rimz - it's narcissism. A nice self congratulatory pat on the back for inheriting the hard work of the white man and claiming it through force (political power to stick with the Troopers theme).

This is the same reason that many thousands of years from now some white crusaders trekking across the northern plains will find a giant black fist in the ground. Then soon after dig up the remains of the black museums of Detroit and wonder, as they look around at their lilly white world with blacks in servitude, "Wow, black people built this great metropolis, what happened to it?"

OK, OK. I bought a Kindle copy of Starship Troopers. I've started it. You can stop harassing me now.

I've often wondered about the hagiographic accounts of Jackie Robinson. He had been a star in the Negro Leagues and from what I've read that was hard. They used the spitter and they had many other areas where the rules were routinely broken.

I am willing also to accept that the players in the Negroes Leagues were better athletes in general that those in the white leagues. So for the 'love of the game' and an opportunity to play with the best players - Robinson should have stayed in with the Negroes.

But he went for the big bucks. I'm not blaming him - pursuit of the dollar - is admirable, but it is not heroic.

Or to look at it another way - who was the best NBA basketball player of all time. I would say Rick Barry because he had the most effect on player's salaries.

Or maybe you think it's not just about the money?

Why don't white people in the US adopt the caste system from India ? It has worked for thousands of years. Everyone knows their place, you can't marry out your caste. You are born into a caste and you have to live with it for the rest of your life.

Adopting the caste system in America would solve 99% of the problems. It's a tried and tested method. People get used to it and, learn to live with it.
