#261. Dying First in Film

 There exists an unwritten rule in cinema: The Black character always dies first in the movie. Whether the film is action, drama, a love story or a psychological thriller, the Black character always dies first.

In the horror genre, this rule is normally pursued vigorously, as the Black person in the movie is of minor concern to the overall plot of the story. Having the antagonist of the film quickly kill off the Black person is a constructive way to make the viewer automatically lose all sympathy toward the villain.

The preponderance of Magical Negroes in film has assured the conditioning of movie-goers into believing all Black characters possess the innate ability to impact the hero/heroine positively, thus the sudden decimation of the Black character is grounds for instantaneous animosity toward the movie monster.

Black characters provide comic relief, for their all-too-brief time on the screen. Appearing to deliver a few stereotypical Black lines and enhance the compulsory diversity to the film, the Black character is the most easily disposable.

The demise of the Black character is highly memorable; normally the introducing the bad guy of the film in a most gory manner and helping setting the stage for the carnage that will inevitably ensue.

So in manner of speaking, the Black character is incredibly important to the overall film, their death signifying to the viewer that the movie is beginning to enter the actual noteworthy moments of the narrative.

Black Horror Movies ( is Web site devoted to tracking and educating people on this cinematic phenomenon:

"No way. I've seen this movie. The black dude dies first."
-Professor Harry Phineas Block (Orlando Jones), Evolution 
"Ooh, I'm done! Brothers never make it out of situations like this!"
-Sherman "Preacher" Dudley (LL Cool J), Deep Blue Sea

"Did you know that the black guy doesn't always die first?"
-sinister email, The Mangler 2
"Everybody knows black guys get it first in horror movies. It's like Horror Films 101."
-Elvis (Raymond Novarro Smith), Bloody Murder 2

So you're watching a horror movie when he comes on screen. He could be a jock, a nerd, or a smelter in a haunted copper factory, but you just know he's gonna wind up on the short end of the meat hook. Why? Because he's black. You feel guilty for thinking it, but this scenario is so recognizable that it's become a joke. In fright films, being black has become as much a kiss of death as having sex, doing drugs, or saying, "Is anyone there?"
The theatrical device of killing off the Black character has become a crutch that writers and directors have used for far too long, ruining many films from having more Magical Negroes to help navigate the main characters safely through the film and into the inevitable sequel. Black people even recognize the danger they face in film recognizing the patterns that have emerged of Black characters meeting a grisly fate.

How many potential Fictional Black History Month Heroes have been unfairly snuffed out early in a film thanks to the strict and rigid application of this unwritten rule?

The illustrious list of Black thespians who have died in films is long and distinguished but demonstrates the sheer disposability of the characters they played.

Integral to the story only because of the significance their death entails, Black characters are begrudgingly one-dimensional and undeveloped. It is only in the pleas for help and agonizing final seconds of their screen time that the viewer feels any emotion for them.

In horror films, Black actors need only two things: Their Blackness and the ability to die. Some Black characters do survive films, but these brave and lucky souls are the exception to the unwritten rule.

Sadly, there is no truth to the rumor that Black people being loud at movies began when they would attempt to implore the Black character about to meet a grim ending to "go the other away" or "look out behind you."

The moral of the story is that Black characters are incredibly unimportant to the movies success, with only a handful of bankable Black stars in Hollywood that can be called upon to carry a film to profitability.

Easily disposable, the Black character’s involvement in film is a mere formality that eerily mirrors real-life Black people’s existence. Life is cheap in the proverbial ghetto, where Black-on-Black crime is shockingly more prevalent then the Black character dying first in a movie.

Stuff Black People Don’t Like includes dying first in film. Is this unwritten rule a parody of Black life in the ghetto, an acknowledgment by Hollywood of the propensity for Black people to be deplorably denied a full and rich life by Black hands or is it just a re-occurring theme because the Black character has so little impact on the overall story?

Does the Black Vote Matter? No

In 2008 voter turnout during the United States Presidential election reached epic levels. Black people, encouraged by the candidacy of Mein Obama, went to the polls in record numbers. 65.2 percent of eligible Black voters went to the polls, supporting Barack Obama with near monolithic solidarity:
Does the Black vote matter? No.

Fully 96 percent of black voters supported Obama and constituted 13 percent of the electorate, a 2-percentage-point rise in their national turnout. As in past years, black women turned out at a higher rate than black men.
The euphoria of potentially exculpating white guilt forever with a vote for Mein Obama prompted white people to vote for him, truly granting victory to Zod-Obama.

You see, the Black vote really doesn’t matter. It’s inconsequential save in major cities, where Black people are losing their power (like Atlanta).

If white people hadn’t voted in such dramatic numbers for Obama – again, trying to wash away the perpetual stain of oppressor from their guilt-ridden souls – Mein Obama would not have won.

Looking at Obama’s approval ratings is eye-opening: Black people support Obama with 90 percent approval, while Disingenuous White Liberals (forever haunted by the specter of white guilt) provide Obama with a 37 percent approval rating:
As many as 88 percent of African Americans approve of the job he is doing handling the economy, compared to just 33 percent of whites. While most say the economy is bad, more African Americans than whites say it is in good shape now.

More than four in five African Americans think the president has made progress on many of the important issues facing the country, including providing affordable health care to all. Eighty-five percent of black voters said Mr. Obama has made progress health care, while just 40 percent of white voters said so. When it comes to ending the war in Iraq, 82 percent of black voters said they president the president has made progress, while just 56 percent of white voters agreed.

Of course Black people are excited about the Health care bill that was rammed through Congress: it helps them disproportionately.
In 2010 though, MARS is rising. People – though loath to admit it – can see. Though few people know just how deep the infection of Black Run America (BRA) goes, they can recognize the symptoms.

The Republicans don’t care about the Black vote anymore. Nor should they. The majority of Black people vote for the Democratic Party because of the promise of entitlements, a continued expansion of the welfare state and because they rely on the Federal Government (i.e. the tax payer) to support their life styles.

Perhaps a gift of divine providence brought Stuff Black People Don’t Like online when it did, for the year and a half we have been documenting the rapid decline of America illustrates the most radical change in people’s views in American history.

Officer Crowley, though he acted ‘stupidly’, is the genesis of this awakening and when Black Run America (BRA) collapses completely in the coming years, it is he who will be remembered for the courage he displayed.

The Black vote is staying at home, having blown their wad forever on electing that half-white dude in 2008.

White people, Disingenuous White Liberals, provide the bedrock of the Democratic Party, and their diminishing numbers aren’t enough to provide Democratic candidates with victories. They need Black people and will employ any shameless tactic to get Black people to the polls:
No one expects African-Americans to vote in anywhere near their numbers from 2008, when their 65 percent turnout matched that of whites for the first time. But that isn't stopping Democratic organizers and supporting groups from using aggressive, even racially charged, tactics to get them to the polls Tuesday.

Mein Obama is forced to call into Black radio shows in a bid to rally the troops who still support him with a Banana Republic-like 90 percent approval. Wearing Barack Obama shirts is still a fashion statement in the Black community, an accepted accoutrement denoting admiration and fealty for Mein Obama, though it’s no longer fashionable in the community that matters.

White people are beginning to realize: There is no end to  “And Then?” the perpetual question of the Black community that follows any concession made to them by the the government:
Fifty-one percent (51%) of Americans believe the U.S. government is too sensitive to the concerns of racial, ethnic and social minorities in the country.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 24% of Adults think the government is not sensitive enough. Sixteen percent (16%) say the level of sensitivity is about right. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Perhaps not surprisingly, 56% of African-Americans say the government is not sensitive enough to minority concerns, while 61% of whites think the government is overly concerned. Those of other ethnicities are narrowly divided on the question.

Washington is now bankrupt. The majority of the states are bankrupt.  The Tea Party’s agenda will be to turn off the flow of cash into the hands of those who have been anointed and entitled in BRA because they have the requisite skin pigmentation.

For far too long America has been a land where the happiness of Black people has been the primary concern and motivation of the private, public and educational sectors at the expense of the overall health of the nation.

Though few will admit what is happening, SBPDL will: we are witnessing the beginning of the rise of MARS (Middle American Radicals), the complete rejection of the principles of BRA and the move toward the Second Civil War.
Yes Barack, you must implement the Baracka Flacka Flames “Head of the State” move:
“I’m the head of the state!” President Obama shouts, with a blend of jubilation and indignation on his face.

Except that’s not exactly what he says — the sentence is spiked with an expletive and a racial epithet.

See the controversial video here

And, of course, it’s not Mr. Obama, but an extremely convincing impersonator, James Davis, performing as Baracka Flacka Flames in a video called “Head of the State.” (The video is available onYouTube and elsewhere online.) The clip, which has been viewed more than million times since Thursday, is a spoof of the bombastic “Hard in Da Paint,” the recent hit by the rowdy Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame.

After that introduction, there are three more minutes of jarring juxtapositions. Mr. Davis’s Obama raps about his detractors with more curses and epithets, smokes marijuana, dances with a bottle of alcohol, pets a pit bull and more. Actresses play the first lady (Jefandi Cato, whose resemblance to Michelle Obama is a little uncanny) and Oprah Winfrey, who happily join in the raucous party.

Become authentically Black and you can make the Black vote relevant again. That’s it. This is the only way left to stave off electoral decimation, since this election is a referendum on not only your first two years in office, but Black Run America’s legitimacy.

MARS is rising. Remember, 54 percent of the Black population lives in the Southern states (interestingly, none of the top cities in 2010 to move to are in the South). No state outside of the South has a Black population comprising more than 25 percent of the population (Delaware has a 20 percent Black population), thus proving that the Black vote is incredibly overrated.

No, the Black vote doesn’t matter at all. This is beginning to seep into the minds of people infected by years of BRA propaganda, who are slowly realizing the severity of the contagion. The public sector is completely under the spell of BRA’s power, as evidence by the Department of Justice voting intimidation issue from 2008.

Even cities with identical names to failed Black cities garner bad press for daring to change their name, thus losing the negative association.

Black Run America is akin to the Great and Powerful Oz. Scary and overwhelming to those who believe it has magical, all-encompassing powers and is unimpeachable, the reality is simply this: people are beginning to realize it’s just a bunch of DWLs behind a curtain making a lot of noise.

The Black vote doesn’t matter. It’s nice that so many Black people became inspired by Mein Obama in 2008, but that was the culmination of centuries of torment (much of it real, most of it exaggerated).

MARS is rising. Across the nation, MARS is rising. Let that sink in for a second.

MARS is rising.

The people who SWPL whites despise are daring to speak out and say enough is enough.

Courage was all it was ever going to take. Never forget that.

#421. The 'Noose' Halloween Decoration

Few things in life conjure images of dread more than the prospect of death. The macabre thought of how we will meet our end is a contemplation few dare entertain.

Halloween is a time of the year where the ghostly, ghoulish, ghastly, grisly, grotesque and terrifying are confronted, traditionally a day where our own mortality is in question.

People visit haunted houses in an attempt to have their senses overloaded with simulated frights, all the while looking at iconography glorifying instruments that have contributed to death. No Halloween decoration induces fear quite like the noose, the hangman’s knot that has horrified criminals for many a century.

Hanging wit silent horror, the noose is a fear-inducing device that spells doom for whoever has the ignominy of wearing it on their neck.

A most garish Halloween decoration, the noose has become a contentious source of angst for Black people who see this particular ornamentation in people’s yards. The noose is the device used in lynchings that history tells us are a prominent scar upon white America that will never fade.

Lynchings have been called the “Holocaust of Black people” though from a span of “1882 and 1951, 4,730 people were lynched in the United States: 3,437 Negro and 1,293 white.” Lynchings have long been looked upon as a form of racial oppression, though the primary reasoning behind using a noose on a criminal was to bring about swift justice and deter illegal behavior in “outlaw” territory.

Lynching was used a tool to discourage rape, effectively sending a message to would be sexual predators. According to FBI statistics, 37,000+ white women were raped or sexually assaulted in 2005 alone in the United States, so this message has long been forgotten.

The rate of lynching’s by race from 1882-1951 correlates interestingly to the disproportionate amount of crime committed by Black people in today’s America. Even in the days when lynching was “prominent”, the nation only averaged 68 a year. A cursory glance of shows you more than 68 horrible stories of death transpiring daily across the nation.

Yet the pernicious myth of lynching continues unabated, leaving Halloween displays exploiting a noose as a scare prop quite vulnerable:
A Halloween display in Springfield, Ill., will be modified because of concerns that it is racist, the local NAACP said.

A compromise was reached Thursday in meeting of city officials, Springfield's National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and homeowner, Josh Witkowski, The Springfield State Journal-Register reported.

Springfield NAACP President Archie Lawrence had complained at Tuesday's city council meeting that the display was an effigy of a black man hanging from gallows. The hanging figure was dressed as a cowboy, its legs tied with rope, with a dark-colored skull.

Witkowski said he will change the color of the mask to silver with red and brown tones underneath. The cowboy hat will be removed to prevent casting a shadow on the mask. The rest of the display will remain the same, he said.

"After talking to Mr. Witkowski, one thing I am certain: It was never his intent to have a racist prop in his yard. I am absolutely certain of that," said Lawrence. "And to show the goodness of this man, what he did was he changed the prop to clearly reflect that it's just a Halloween image, nothing more and nothing less."
This happens all over the nation as those exterior decorators daring to employ nooses in their shrines of fright quickly cast themselves in league with mephistophelean white devils of the past:
In a dozen incidents during the weeks before Halloween this year, black and white Americans around the country faced a kind of Rorschach test of the national psyche: Is that a funny Halloween ghoul in a noose hanging from your neighbor’s tree? Or is that a racist symbol of lynching hiding in the Halloween tableau?...
The Rev. Johnny Gamble, pastor of the Friendship Baptist Church in Stratford, heard complaints from parishioners and went to see it for himself.

“At first, I couldn’t believe my eyes. But there it was. A mannequin of a black man, hanging from the neck,” said Mr. Gamble, who is black.

When he knocked at the door, Joyce Mounajed, Miss Cervero’s mother, told him the figure was not meant to be a black man, but was dark-hued to convey the idea of decaying flesh. It was “just a decoration,” he said she told him.

“I told her, ‘We don’t decorate like that. That is a symbol of lynching,’” Mr. Gamble said. “What if my great-grandfather was lynched? There are no two ways of looking at this; that thing is extremely offensive.”

The origins of Halloween are murky, with links to pagan traditions, All Saints Day (a Christian holiday celebrated the next day) and the great Hollywood tradition of Freddy Krueger’s undead tribe. But in all its versions, sociologists say, it has been a holiday that celebrates transgressions of one kind or another.

Richard Lachman, professor of sociology at the State University of New York at Albany, said the noose is a fairly new part of outdoor Halloween displays, hardly seen until the last few years.

“It cannot be taken as a joke,” he said, considering the history of lynching in the United States.
Jokes are no longer tolerated in America, especially on Halloween where a noose will always be construed as a device used for the impending lynching of a Black person. The connotations are just too obvious, even when turned around:
It's a still photo taken of a Halloween decoration in front of a house here in Houston. In that video you see two stuffed decorations.

One represents a Black man with a noose around a White man's neck. That White man appears to be picking cotton.

The family in Houston that posted that decoration on their lawn has since taken it down. But they described it as just a Halloween prank.
What do you think? Is this a joke in bad taste?
Philip Dray's new book on lynching fits into that conventional wisdom.  Unless one is predisposed to question the Left's image of white Americans, a reader will be inclined to accept its narrative at face value.  Dray has written a readable chronology of lynching, with emphasis especially on the South, and shows the product of considerable research into the subjects he considers important. 
            This said, it remains important to note the ways his book lacks perspective.  (What follows is a discussion of just some of those ways, since a complete examination of them would go far beyond the scope of a book review):
            1.  His entire theme ("the lynching of black America") repeats the now-customary premise that lynching was primarily an expression of racism.  "Lynching," he says, "was a form of caste oppression... the white world's cruelty"; and, elsewhere, "victims were chosen for their race."
            What is odd is that he cites quite a lot of counter-evidence, but never reflects about it.  He tells about the San Francisco Vigilante Committees of 1851 and 1856; about the hanging of the white gamblers in Vicksburg; about the lynching of eleven whites in New Orleans in 1891 after the Police Superintendent was shot from ambush; that half the thirty lynch victims in Illinois after 1882 were white; that thirty-five whites were lynched in North Dakota in the mid-1880s for cattle rustling; and much more.  Lynching was not limited by race or by region of the country.
            Robert Zangrando's The NAACP Crusade Against Lynching, 1909-1950, cites the figures compiled by the Tuskegee Institute: that during the 87 year span between 1882 and 1968 a total of 1,297 whites and 3,445 blacks were lynched.  If racism were the prime mover, the almost 1,300 whites require some explanation.  The major explanation as an alternative to the racial one is the amount of crime to which local communities were reacting. 
            We know, of course, of the cattle-rustling and other crimes committed in the "wild west."  What most people today don't know about is the extent of black crime in the South.  In his book on lynching, James Elbert Cutler quotes with favor a statement that during those years "the worst instincts of the negro came to the front; the percentage of criminals among negroes increased to an alarming extent; many were guilty of crimes of violence of the most heinous and repulsive kind."  Another author tells that "in 1921-22, the homicide rates in Atlanta, Birmingham, Memphis, and New Orleans per 100,000 Negro population were 103.2, 97.2, 116.9, and 46.7 respectively, while the corresponding rates for the white population were 15.0, 28.0, 29.6, and 8.4."  W.E.B. DuBois, the black-activist leader whom today's conventional wisdom perhaps respects most from among the black leaders of that day, spoke candidly of "a class of black criminals, loafers, and ne'er-do-wells who are a menace to their fellows, both black and white."  That three-quarters of those lynched were black isn't surprising under those circumstances. 
            Dray makes the point that some of the lynchings were for trivial offenses, but fails to mention that there were whites as well as blacks who ran afoul of this.  In Pine Level, North Carolina, in 1908, blacks themselves lynched a black entertainer for "putting on a poor show."
No one wants to look upon a noose and have the chilling final thought that this rope will be their apparatus of doom. Chances are, though, if this was your final thought then you broke the law and the noose was warranted.

Stuff Black People Don’t Like includes the noose decoration, for Disingenuous White Liberals constantly bemoan the Holocaust against Black people that transpired from 1882-1951. Those who celebrate Halloween are warned not to use the noose in terrifying displays they create, for Black people who have been told of the past evils of white people by Crusading White Pedagogues will find nothing but racism in these hangman’s knots.

Sometimes that might be warranted, but most of the time it’s all done in good fun to elicit a fright.

There is nothing more frightening then the silhouette of a human swaying back and forth, with the sun departing in the background. The noose decoration is a reminder that law could once again be restored to the lawless; Black, Brown or white.

The Return of Halloween: Devils Night is Back

Trick or Treating. Halloween movies for kids. The ‘ghost’ costume and Halloween fraternity parties. McDonald’s old-school celebration of Halloween. Barack Obama costumes.

Is there a date that plays to the memory of Pre-Obama America with greater emotional power and iconography then Halloween? No.

Halloween evolved into a celebration of community, where neighbors would open their doors to children on the prowl for candy. Only in cities where a sense of identity, cooperation and civic pride converged could such a holiday mature.
Those cities with high rates of volunteerism seem to provide a window into the areas where Halloween flourishes., a popular real-estate Web site, took on the task of identifying the top 20 cities for Trick or Treating and came out with an interesting list:
We theorized that homes in more expensive neighborhoods would give out bigger, better candy. However, wealthy neighborhoods are not always the best for harvesting the most Halloween candy. For parents and kids alike, the walkability and density of a neighborhood is key to covering the most ground, in the fastest time, to collect the most candy. Safety, of course, is also a primary concern for parents on Halloween, thus adding crime data to the Index was a no-brainer.
Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Washington DC, Chicago, Milwaukee, Phoenix and San Diego are on the list, though Zillow then breaks down the data further offering the top five neighborhoods to Trick or Treat.
In every major city, gentrification is underway. SWPL whites have created enclaves that ward off undesirable elements from contaminating their sociological experiments. Zillow profiles the top neighborhoods in Atlanta to Trick or Treat and trust us; these are some of the whitest areas in the city:
Top 5 Atlanta Neighborhoods to Trick-or-Treat in 2010
  1. Virginia Highland
  2. Morningside / Lenox Park
  3. Inman Park
  4. Brookhaven
  5. Garden Hills
Odd that the Atlanta neighborhoods labeled the most dangerous in America recently aren’t environs profiled by Zillow as highly conducive locals for collecting candy.
Even worse, the failure to include Detroit into this list of top places to Trick or Treat makes us question the legitimacy of this study. Devils Night in Detroit is the type of community building exercise that one normally associates with civic-minded individuals:
Devil's Night in Detroit dates as early as the 1930s. Traditionally, city youths engaged in a night of criminal behavior, which usually consisted of acts of vandalism (such as egging, soaping, or toilet papering). These were almost exclusively acts of petty vandalism, causing little to no property damage.

However, in the early 1970s, the vandalism escalated to more devastating acts, such as arson. This primarily took place in the inner city, but surrounding suburbs were often affected as well. In addition, property owners unable to sell in the city's rapidly declining housing market would use Devil's Night as an opportunity to burn down their homes, collect the insurance money, and claim that an arsonist was at fault.

The crimes became more destructive in Detroit's inner-city neighborhoods, and included hundreds of acts of arson and vandalism every year. The destruction reached a peak in the mid- to late-1980s, with more than 800 fires set in 1984, and 500 to 800 fires in the three days and nights before Halloween in a typical year.
While some people bemoan Devils Night as a sign of decline in Detroit, we believe it exemplifies and embodies the true character of Halloween as practiced by Black people. This year, Halloween celebrations in Detroit are being stymied with the institution of a city-wide curfew to off-set any potential conflagrations started by young Black arsonists:
This weekend, Detroit could feature a rivalry between angels and devils. However, the team of angles is working hard to make sure the good guys win this battle.

Plenty of Detroit neighborhoods have really embraced the idea that Devils' Night is now Angels' Night. The Detroit Police and Fire Departments are working to make sure it stays that way.

"We like to turn around and make it into something positive," said Detroit Police Sergeant Daniel Williams.

A night that once prompted fear is being transformed one year at a time. For years, Devils' Night was marked by flames, but today Angels' Night has a far different purpose…

Halloween. A holiday that should indelibly showcase the great divide that exists in America between incompatible cultures.

With this, let us reinstitute Halloween week at Stuff Black People Don’t Like.

The Roots of SWPL white people and How to get Back to the Future for Untouchable white people

Twenty-five years ago, a movie debut that changed cinema forever. Spawning two sequels, Back to the Future became the gold standard for time-travel movies and created a squirm-inducing moment when Marty McFly (played by Michael J. Fox) locked lips with his future mom in 1955.

Twenty-five years later, a generation has passed with new people being born into a nation that looks incredibly different from the one glorified in Hill Valley from Back to the Future. People who fondly remember the film are merely glancing upon a piece of pure Pre-Obama America pie, perhaps subconsciously desiring a return to a time period when Michael Jackson was still Black and the future seemed so bright that shades might be necessary.

Stuff Black People Don’t Like recalls a line from the much maligned Back to the Future Part III and realizes it sums up the current epoch poetically:
Jennifer Parker: Dr. Brown, I brought this note back from the future and now it's erased.
Doc: Of course it's erased.
Jennifer Parker: But what does that mean?
Doc: It means your future hasn't been written yet. No one's has. Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one, both of you.
Marty McFly: [Marty wraps his arm around Jennifer] We will, Doc.
Yesterday, we discussed the quickly diverging groups of white people in Black Run America (BRA) – Stuff White People Like (SWPL) whites and Untouchable whites.

SWPL whites are status-seeking whites that have never met a Black cause or benefit they didn’t fall head over heels in love with and support, since they epitomize Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) to the letter.

 Untouchable whites are those white people who reside in states that SWPL whites pour scorn upon, and who face uphill battles in garnering an elite education because of their degraded status.

They live in states that have white populations that are increasingly aware of the apparatus known as BRA that has been constructed by the government, corporate and educational sectors to promote Black people above their station at the expense of all others.

Interestingly, SWPL whites have no use for Black people save to utilize them as they further their own interests in the status-seeking game they play against Untouchable whites.
Take, for example, the state of Washington, home to one of the finest examples of a SWPL white city, Seattle. A most interesting exchange recently transpired there that highlights the supreme level of trouble this nation is in:
State Supreme Court justices Richard Sanders and James Johnson stunned some participants at a recent court meeting when they said African Americans are overrepresented in the prison population because they commit a disproportionate number of crimes.

Both justices disputed the view held by some that racial discrimination plays a significant role in the disparity.

Johnson also used the term "poverty pimp," an apparent reference to people who purportedly exploit the poor in the legal system, say those who attended the meeting.
Sanders later confirmed his remarks about imprisoned African Americans, saying "certain minority groups" are "disproportionally represented in prison because they have a crime problem."

"That's right," he told The Seattle Times this week. "I think that's obvious."
Johnson did not respond to several messages left Wednesday and Thursday with three staffers in Olympia. He also did not respond to messages left Thursday at his home and with Sanders. Johnson's staff said he was with the court in Spokane to hear cases at the Gonzaga University law school.

African Americans represent about 4 percent of Washington's population but nearly 20 percent of the state prison population. Similar disparities nationwide have been attributed by some researchers to sentencing practices, inadequate legal representation, drug-enforcement policies and criminal-enforcement procedures that unfairly affect African Americans.
A quick consultation with would help anyone understand the true face of criminality in this nation, though DWLs labor under the delusion that white people continue to be the catalyst for Black iniquity.

Black people have an profound inability to cooperate with the police, which many DWLs interpret as signs of racism on the part of police. Racial discrimination on the part of Untouchable whites - unrefined and disgusting beings - is always to blame for Black failure in the eyes of SWPL whites.

Lost in the excitement of Back to the Future's 25th reunion is the spread in Entertainment Weekly reuniting those Black actors who played in the TV mini-series Roots:
“There’s a line that goes through the Civil Rights movement, through Roots in [the] 1970s, to Barack Obama being elected,” LeVar Burton notes as he and Roots co-stars Ben Vereen and Louis Gossett Jr. reminisce about their days playing Kunta Kinte, Chicken George, and Fiddler. Thirty-three years after the miniseries first appeared on ABC (85 percent of the population tuned in for at least part of it, with the finale drawing 100 million viewers), a lot has changed in the country and the culture.

But, as Vereen points out in the embedded video below, filmed at EW’s Reunion 2010 shoot in Los Angeles earlier this month, not even Roots was able to enlighten everybody. He remembers what happened when co-star Madge Sinclair (nominated for an Emmy for playing Belle) approached one of the networks with a post-Roots project. “She was told they had done their quota for the African-American community,” he says.
Roots mesmerized an entire nation, washing viewers in buckets of white guilt as it took everyone back to the past of black enslavement. Roots became the ultimate device for inducing white guilt and enabling the continued construction of Black Run America, for white people would bear the eternal mark of sin for their insidious actions toward Black people.

One problem: Roots is just as fictional as Back to the Future, no matter what Kunta Kinte may have said:
MANY things resurrect themselves, some great, some not. 

The case against Alex Haley who became a millionaire and a celebrity through the profits made from his novel "Roots" and its offshoots is growing at such speed that we may someday come to understand just who this extraordinarily dishonest man actually was. 

The investigative reporter Philip Nobile pinned Haley's reputation to the wall in a Village Voice article he did in 1993 about what he calls "the greatest literary hoax of the century." Nobile has been attacked for kicking mud on the reputation of a man who did so much for Negro America by showing that it was possible to find one's way all the distance back to Africa. 

But all those who hate Nobile are talking out of their necks. The new BBC documentary "The Roots of Alex Haley" proves that they have something else on their minds besides the truth. Haley is still revered, and the support system for his work continues to perpetuate an enormous fraud on the public. That fraud and its spin-offs are so lucrative that the den of thieves that rises from the golden garbage cans of publishing, TV, tourism and the academy are threatened by this documentary, which has yet to find an outlet here. I wonder why. 

Like the Tawana Brawley hoax, the story of just what Haley brought off is an example of how history and tragic fact can be pillaged by an individual willing to exploit whatever the naive might consider sacred. Haley arrived on the scene when Negroes were becoming obsessed with their African ancestry and were having overwrought reactions to a tale of slavery that always, conveniently, left out the crucial role of the cooperative and profiting Africans. 

Stolen words 

Haley stole from a white man's novel, Harold Courlander's "The African" and, says black writer Margaret Walker, from her own "Jubilee." Only a year after Haley had become a literary star, he was sued by Courlander and settled after a five-week trial for $650,000. 

Judge Robert Ward, who presided over the case, says in the documentary: "Alex Haley perpetrated a hoax on the public." But with prototypical Caucasian paternalism, he tells the camera: "I encouraged a settlement because I believed that Alex Haley was a significant figure in the black community. I believe that Haley was a symbol. I believe that it would not serve any purpose to smash the symbol." 

In other words: If those darkies are happy with their African heritage hoax, let them have it. They're children anyway. The truth would overwhelm them, poor things. 

Since "Roots," hundreds of thousands of Negro Americans have traveled back to Africa, creating quite a tourist industry. It's one the Gambian government seems to have foreseen when it supplied Haley with an interpreter to help him patch together the lie of tracing his family back to the African village of Juffure.
In the BBC documentary, one expert after another shows just how much Americans were hoodwinked by this man. We find out that Haley admits to having had extensive passages written by his editor, Murray Fisher. 

Lisa Drew, another Doubleday editor, saw the big money coming and put "Roots" on the nonfiction list although it was obviously a novel. Presenting herself as a friend of the Negro, she offers the absurd defense that she didn't want bigots to dismiss the tale as a lie. Well, the whole thing is a lie, one that looms so large the Pulitzer Prize committee refuses to consider withdrawing the special prize Haley received. You got to watch those paternalists.
SWPL white people still believe the lie that Roots is gospel, a true account of the gross injustices inflicted upon Black people by vengeful, dispassionate whites. It's merely fiction, as real as Mayor Goldie Wilson.

What was real is Pre-Obama America. People across the country are beginning to remember that, and the impediment to this past is the creature known as Black Run America.

The future is what we make of it.

Stuff Black People Don't Like will return to normal posts tomorrow (and the cross-posting will continue at the new Web site /

But it must stated, unequivocally, that there is nothing more vile than a SWPL white person. The people of Washington deserve better then to have these vermin bemoan the sagacious reasoning of two members of the state Supreme Court when it comes to crime and Black people.

Roots has sprouted in the minds of SWPL white people, turning them into DWLs incapable of living in the real world, though they strangely self-segregate far away from Black people.

To get Back to the Future that America once had, BRA must be dismantled, and only Untouchable white people can make that happen.

But is America worth saving at this point? Is the infection of BRA to deep to excise?

Stuff White People Like whites against Untouchable whites

For those unaware, Stuff Black People Don’t Like found inspiration in the formidable Web site and book Stuff White People Like. Originally, the plan for the forthcoming book (SBPDL: Year One) was to include a Black hand with a defiant thumbs down, an obvious riff on the Stuff White People Like book cover.

A quick conversation with a few lawyer friends dissuaded us from that idea for the time being, though it will probably grace the cover of a book down the line.
Stuff White People Like (SWPL) people are an interesting lot, summed up brilliantly in this entry from the book:
#8. Barack Obama:
Because white people are afraid that if they don’t like him that they will be called racist.
 Has  more straight-forward reasoning ever been supplied to authenticate the admiration for Mein Obama by Disingenuous White Liberals (DWL) who congregate in cities that have a conspicuous absent of Black people

While most whites abandon Mein Obama with a speed unparalleled in American politics, DWLs offer General Zod their loyalty, obedience and check books.
These cities occupied by SWPL-types are some of the safest, cleanest and volunteer-friendly in America, plus, they offer some of the best areas for Trick-or-Treating in the nation. Strangely, the worst neighborhoods in America are scarcely found within these SWPL metropolises.

 But then again, kids aren’t found to often in these areas. Steve Sailer (oddly, an inspiration for both Christian Lander’s idea of SWPL and a major influence upon SBPDL) coined the term Affordable Family Formation, which eloquently points out the trends found in white American demographics:
The single most useful and understandable birthrate measure is the “total fertility rate.” This estimates, based on recent births, how many children the average woman currently in her childbearing years will have. The National Center for Health Statistics reported that in 2002 the average white woman was giving birth at a pace consistent with having 1.83 babies during her lifetime, or 13 percent below the replacement rate of 2.1 children per woman. This below-replacement level has not changed dramatically in three decades.

States, however, differ significantly in white fertility. The most fecund whites are in heavily Mormon Utah, which, not coincidentally, was the only state where Bush received over 70 percent. White women average 2.45 babies in Utah compared to merely 1.11 babies in Washington, D.C., where Bush earned but 9 percent. The three New England states where Bush won less than 40 percent—Massachusetts, Vermont, and Rhode Island—are three of the four states with the lowest white birthrates, with little Rhode Island dipping below 1.5 babies per woman.

Bush carried the 19 states with the highest white fertility (just as he did in 2000), and 25 out of the top 26, with highly unionized Michigan being the one blue exception to the rule. (The least prolific red states are West Virginia, North Dakota, and Florida.)

In sharp contrast, Kerry won the 16 states at the bottom of the list, with the Democrats’ anchor states of California (1.65) and New York (1.72) having quite infertile whites.
White people in areas that are routinely covered here at SBPDL are outbreeding those white people who deem themselves more sophisticated and cosmopolitan, dwelling in overpriced domiciles (prices that way to legally keep Black people out) found in cities abound with culture exemplified by those who frequent Whole Foods.
The wrong kind of white person shops at Wal-Mart (interesting, both of these stores have had incidents where Black patrons were encouraged by anonymous PA pirates to leave the store). This wrong kind of white person is exactly whom Charles Murray talks about in a recent article he published:
We know, for one thing, that the New Elite clusters in a comparatively small number of cities and in selected neighborhoods in those cities. This concentration isn't limited to the elite neighborhoods of Washington, New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and San Francisco. It extends to university cities with ancillary high-tech jobs, such as Austin and the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill triangle. 

With geographical clustering goes cultural clustering. Get into a conversation about television with members of the New Elite, and they can probably talk about a few trendy shows -- "Mad Men" now, "The Sopranos" a few years ago. But they haven't any idea who replaced Bob Barker on "The Price Is Right." They know who Oprah is, but they've never watched one of her shows from beginning to end.

Talk to them about sports, and you may get an animated discussion of yoga, pilates, skiing or mountain biking, but they are unlikely to know who Jimmie Johnson is (the really famous Jimmie Johnson, not the former Dallas Cowboys coach), and the acronym MMA means nothing to them. 

They can talk about books endlessly, but they've never read a "Left Behind" novel (65 million copies sold) or a Harlequin romance (part of a genre with a core readership of 29 million Americans). 

They take interesting vacations and can tell you all about a great backpacking spot in the Sierra Nevada or an exquisite B&B overlooking Boothbay Harbor, but they wouldn't be caught dead in an RV or on a cruise ship (unless it was a small one going to the Galapagos). They have never heard of Branson, Mo. 

There are so many quintessentially American things that few members of the New Elite have experienced. They probably haven't ever attended a meeting of a Kiwanis Club or Rotary Club, or lived for at least a year in a small town (college doesn't count) or in an urban neighborhood in which most of their neighbors did not have college degrees (gentrifying neighborhoods don't count). They are unlikely to have spent at least a year with a family income less than twice the poverty line (graduate school doesn't count) or to have a close friend who is an evangelical Christian. They are unlikely to have even visited a factory floor, let alone worked on one. 

Taken individually, members of the New Elite are isolated from mainstream America as a result of lifestyle choices that are nobody's business but their own. But add them all up, and they mean that the New Elite lives in a world that doesn't intersect with mainstream America in many important ways. When the tea party says the New Elite doesn't get America, there is some truth in the accusation.
Those people who comprise the truly left behind in American life represent the best elements that remain in this nation. Denigrated by DWLs as "Tea Baggers" or as hateful, bigoted, xenophobic rednecks, these are the people who have watched as Black Run America (BRA) has been erected with hardly a peep of protest.
Untouchable whites as seen in the film "Next of Kin"
The United States is bankrupt - morally and financially - thanks to the Frankenstein monster that is BRA. Programs that seemed reasonable at the time of their creation now cause people to cast doubts about any Black person who attains a role of prominence in a company, government agency or, well, any position of power; The Department of Justice is plagued by those whose guilt clouds any notion of fairness and equality under the law; and each day the ticking time bomb of the Black underclass creeps ever closer to finally reaching 'zero'.
Bifurcation has transpired in America, and the blogger Half-Sigma illustrated why that is with this statement:
Is SWPL the new elite? I think so, especially if you accept that there are two flavors of SWPL: preppy-SWPL and hipster-SWPL. Investment bankers are preppy-SWPL and people working for non-profits or in creative industries are hipster-SWPL, but both types of SWPL like sushi and degrees from Ivy League schools and neither type of SWPL would take a vacation to visit the heartland of America in an RV. 

Now what creates the resentment of Tea Party people towards the SWPL elite is the fact that the SWPL elite disdain the “wrong kind of white people.” SWPLs feel like they belong to a different tribe than the non-SWPL whites. They are more interested in teaching English to monks in Sri Lanka and bringing solar power to remote parts of the Himalayas than they are in helping Americans living in the same country.
We've been hard on the Tea Party here in the past, but have come to realize that the elements that comprise this movement are the best that remain of Pre-Obama America.They represent what we will label "untouchable whites" who live in so-called Red States and espouse views which progressives label anachronistic.

So thanks are due to Christian Lander. The more we at SBPDL read about SWPL people (and visit the cities that SWPL-types call home), the more we realize what a deplorable lot they represent. Based on demographic trends though, SWPL people are entering the twilight phase of their dominance.

SWPL-types have nothing but contempt and hatred for those lacking their alacrity for causes that would mean extinction if practiced.

 What does it all mean? We'll explore that tomorrow.

A Jack Johnson Moment for the 21st Century: Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez

Black people had their chance, but have sadly let the moment pass them by without the faintest hint of opposition.

The dramatic rise in the Mestizo population in the United States dooms Black people (in the long run) on the racial totem pole. Immigration reform would have maintained their place as the dominant minority group for as long as the United States existed, but Black people have now been eclipsed.

Losing Compton and turf wars across the nation to ruthless Latino gangs, Black people are witnessing a growing coalition of legal and illegal immigrants forming a La Raza movement that threatens the stability of the United States.

Think back to 2006 and the massive rallies held in cities throughout the country. Millions of legal and illegal immigrants joined in waving Mexican flags and denouncing America for being insufficiently benevolent toward their cause.

Tolerance to this massive criminality in our midst is waning, as is evident when one consults opinion polls on illegal immigration or looks toward Arizona's lead in the matter. Were there more high-profile Mexican athletes, the American public might look the other way as they do toward the disproportionate amount criminality of rampant in the Black community.

Since no one watches baseball anymore, Hispanics lack a hero to rally around that the American people care about. With college football and NFL, white people see positive examples of Black people and remain willfully blind to the more unsavory aspects diversity offers.

It is SBPDL's contention that sports offer the primary positive examples of Black people in this country and that it was athletes who helped pave the way for Black people in other vocations (entertainment, politics, etc) to finally gain acceptance.

Without sports, local nightly news casts would broadcast Black achievements at a most melancholy pace.

The genesis of Black people finding hope and ultimately a hero to cheer for and rally around as cause célèbre can be traced to a sports figure who forever altered the course of the United States: Jack Johnson

Funny, a century later Cain Velasquez will attempt to do for the growing Hispanic population exactly what Johnson did for Black people in the first decade of the 20th century: inspire hope and bring together a community behind a sports figure that can motivate a people to push for societal change and acceptance.

It boils down to this: Johnson winning the the heavyweight title in boxing forever destroyed the notion of white supremacy and caused massive riots in cities throughout the nation as angry whites realized the implications of Great White Hopes going down in defeat to his right hand and Black people became energized by a Black man defiantly standing up in a way that emboldened a new generation of leaders for the Black community:
No, where Johnson faced his fiercest fight was out of the ring, in American society, where racism fueled his payback for being the white world's worst nightmare: a black man who beat white fighters with ease, slept with and married white women with frequency, drove fast cars and flashed cash. In an era when the lynching of blacks averaged about 150 a year, Jack Johnson was audacious in his independence. 

"Johnson in many ways is an embodiment of the African American struggle to be truly free in this country -- economically, socially and politically," says Burns in the film's press material. "He absolutely refused to play by the rules set by the white establishment, or even those of the black community. In that sense, he fought for freedom not just as a black man, but as an individual."

He would have none of the notion that blacks should try to fit in and get by. As he won more and more fights, Jack Johnson decided he would get his. The money came in, the prostitutes piled up, the cars got fancier and white America tried to ignore him. When John L. Sullivan became the first heavyweight champion of the world in the late 19th century, the title captured the imagination of the culture. It was the zenith of the sport, but also a racial marker. 

Sullivan said he would never let a black man fight for the title. This drawing of the color line was adopted by subsequent champions, including Jim Jeffries, the people's favorite, whose ducking of Johnson became an art form. Never one to give up, Johnson pounded Jeffries' brother in a fight and -- yet again -- challenged Jim Jeffries to put the crown on the line. He never did and retired undefeated.
Though it is Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and the UFC, the Brock Lesnar- Cain Velasquez tomorrow night has the trappings of a 21st century Jack Johnson moment. MMA is a sport that is growing in popularity and the UFC has played up its marketing of the main event of the card as the opportunity for the "First Mexican Heavyweight Champion".

Velasquez is fighting for exactly what is tattooed across his chest - "Brown Pride" - and has hinted at the struggle Latino immigrants face as being an inspiration in the fight against Lesnar:
Velasquez was first asked in Thursday's call to address his views on Arizona's controversial illegal-immigration law.
"I'm against, definitely," Velasquez told the reporter. "Both my parents came into the United States from Mexico."
The reporter then encouraged Velasquez to tell Lesnar about Velasquez's walk-in song at UFC fights. "It's a story about a man crossing the border and all the hardships ... " Velasquez said.
UFC is the new "it" sport, pitting one man against another in a fight where only one will emerge victorious. Just like pugilism, spectators can discern for themselves when members of different races oppose one another.

Brock vs. Cain is white vs. brown, American vs. Mexican. Though it won't have the same fire of Jack Johnson's destruction of white supremacy in the early 1900s and the clarion call for a "white fighter to avenge the white race" that emerged in the wake of his victories, a Velasquez win would fuel the Hispanic community across the nation, causing spontaneous celebrations at a time they have little to celebrate about. 

If Lesnar wins, well, he'll enjoy a Corona and a burrito in honor of Velasquez's Hispanic heritage.

MMA followers are notoriously and egregiously white, prompting many Black fighters to complain of harassment on the part of enthusiastic fans demeaning their accomplishments.

Brock Lesnar got his start in Vince McMahon's WWF/WWE, headlining Wrestlemania 19. During one Lesnar promo, he wore a Mexican sombrero and had a Mariachi band play to poke fun at the late Eddie Guerrero.

Sports. The Black power movement took off with Jack Johnson. The Brown power movement will take off tomorrow with a Velasquez victory.

A Lesnar victory, who once claimed he was built like a "Black man", would ensure that the popularity of the sport of MMA continues to take off. White people will have a Great White Hope to continue to cheer for, though they will vehemently deny it.

Professional wrestling was once the outlet for this type of energy, but with Lesnar emerging as the dominant heavyweight in the world, the Caste System in sports is starting to look ever the more obvious.

It was Black pride in the 20th century. Will Brown pride prevail now?
