Brawling for God: What's wrong with Black people in North Carolina?

It was two years that a study came out discussing the religious tendencies of the various racial groups in America. The most religious group is Black people, though the high rates of abortion, out-of-wedlock birthrate and Black-on-Black crime is but a minor deviation from the gospel:
A 2009 study by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life found that African-Americans were more religious on a variety of measures than the U.S. population as a whole, with 87 percent of African-Americans describing themselves as belonging to one religious group or another. 

Nearly eight in 10 African-Americans said religion is very important in their lives, compared with 56 percent of the general U.S. adult population.
 That same article would state the number of atheists within the Black community is growing, that fact revealing a direct correlation to the above cited problems plaguing that racial group.

Despite evidence that some Black people are beginning to spurn the word of God in favor of a world devoid of a deity to worship, the majority of Black people are still incredible pious according to surveys (disregarding crime rates, marriage rates, out-of-wedlock birthrates).

Rarely has evidence of this deep devotion to God been on display like this past Sunday in North Carolina, when rival groups of Black people attending the same church got into a royally theological rumble:
 A large brawl broken up by about 30 police officers at a Fletcher church Sunday stemmed from an attempt to get rid of the current pastor, church members said today. 

Officers from five agencies in Henderson and Buncombe counties responded just after noon to Greater New Zion Baptist Church on Asheville Highway after a sheriff's deputy at the scene for routine security called about a fight, said Capt. Jerry Rice with the Henderson County Sheriff's Office.
Sunday and church is a deadly serious time for Black people, with two, three, sometimes even four hours devoted to worshiping the lord in a service. The Sunday sermon offers Black people an excuse to get dressed in the most opulent outfit in their wardrobe and an exhausting spiritual cleansing transpires once they sit down in a pew.

It has been called America's most segregated hour, but rarely are the differences in the various races on full display then at church:
Americans may be poised to nominate a black man to run for president, but it's segregation as usual in U.S. churches, according to the scholars. Only about 5 percent of the nation's churches are racially integrated, and half of them are in the process of becoming all-black or all-white, says Curtiss Paul DeYoung, co-author of "United by Faith," a book that examines interracial churches in the United States.

DeYoung's numbers are backed by other scholars who've done similar research. They say integrated churches are rare because attending one is like tiptoeing through a racial minefield. Just like in society, racial tensions in the church can erupt over everything from sharing power to interracial dating.
 Fighting over faith happens all the time. That's why we don't talk about religion at all here. But we will showcase events that require 30 cops to restore order, especially when this event transpires at a place of worship.

It's fitting that on the day of the massive church brawl, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) held its annual pay-per-view, the Royal Rumble.

Something tells us that had Vince McMahon known about a real brawl - instead of his choreographed male soap opera - that he would have broadcast the Black church brawl instead, guaranteeing a higher buy rate.

We know: you aren't supposed to make fun of Black people or admit that they have problems within their own community. The mere Saturday Night Live skit Blackenstein has infuriated Black people all over the Internet, showing how closely guarded Black people are regarding how other races few them.

The secrets out Black people, thanks to YouTube and World Star Hip Hop. Black riots transpire constantly and thanks to the Internet they can no longer go down the memory hole.

A riot broke out at a basketball game in Charlotte this past weekend, when a parent hit a resource officer. 10 students were arrested at Vance High School in Charlotte (70 percent Black), for brawling.

Video of the church brawl can be found here.

Is there any reason to continue posting stories of depravity in a community that is so obviously lacking in self-control? We at Stuff Black People Don't Like find it sad that the most pious people in America can't find commonality when airing their grievances and resort to brawling amid the pews.

Well, not for a month at least... it's time for a whole new batch of Black Fictional Heroes for Black history month.

Rashida Jones and The New York Times article on "Race Remixed"

The New York Times, that publication that still sets the agenda for the nation, has published a long article entitled Black? White? Asian? More Young Americans Choose All of the Above.

That chick from The Office and Parks and Recreation is Black?
In this article, these lines stand out the most:
One in seven new marriages is between spouses of different races or ethnicities, according to data from 2008 and 2009 that was analyzed by the Pew Research Center. Multiracial and multiethnic Americans (usually grouped together as “mixed race”) are one of the country’s fastest-growing demographic groups. And experts expect the racial results of the 2010 census, which will start to be released next month, to show the trend continuing or accelerating.

No one knows quite how the growth of the multiracial population will change the country. Optimists say the blending of the races is a step toward transcending race, to a place where America is free of bigotry, prejudice and programs like affirmative action.

Pessimists say that a more powerful multiracial movement will lead to more stratification and come at the expense of the number and influence of other minority groups, particularly African-Americans. 

And some sociologists say that grouping all multiracial people together glosses over differences in circumstances between someone who is, say, black and Latino, and someone who is Asian and white. (Among interracial couples, white-Asian pairings tend to be better educated and have higher incomes, according to Reynolds Farley, a professor emeritus at the University of Michigan.)

Along those lines, it is telling that the rates of intermarriage are lowest between blacks and whites, indicative of the enduring economic and social distance between them.

The best line is this one, "Optimists say the blending of the races is a step toward transcending race, to a place where America is free of bigotry, prejudice and programs like affirmative action."

It is SBPDL's belief that as long as programs like affirmative action exist then prejudicial thoughts will persist. Look, NASA is always going to be searching for that Black scientist to dispel bigots who believe they just don't exist save in movies, because they just don't exist save in movies.

A multiracial society will always have bigotry, because one racial group will always perform at a higher rate than other racial groups. Resentment will grow and efforts to rectify this problem will be codified into law. Thus is born affirmative action and ideas such as disparate impact. 

The New York Times article does mention income inequality as one of primary reasons that Black and white pairings are a rarity, as opposed to pairings from the model minority - Asians - and white people.

It should be obvious though that Malcolm Gladwell and Steve Sailer are correct about a rise of a mulatto elite. Educated Black women are finding it difficult to find suitable mates (some urge interracial dating), with the high incarceration rate of Black males coupled with the horrible rates of education force many of these women into childless situations.

Those Black women that are having kids tend to be single parents with a net worth of $5 dollars.

The real bigotry toward the mulatto elite and those mixed-race individuals profiled so glowingly by The New York Times will come from the majority of Black people who do not pass the Brown Paper Bag Test (BPBT).

Real Black people are being left behind at a rate that would make Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins mad with envy, while those Black people with white relatives (one-drop) are getting ahead at a much faster rate. Only in sports are authentically Black people getting ahead.

Take the curious story of current Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones. SBPDL loves The Office and when Jones was on that show it never occurred to us that she was partially Black. In fact, the daughter of Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton faced discrimination from a Black sorority she tried to join because she didn't look Black enough:
Rashida is a Harvard grad. She claims she struggled with her identity there and was "rejected" by some traditionally black sororities. While I feel Rashida on her inability to fit in, I've never met a black sorority who turned down an not-black-black-woman considering that many black Greek organizations have historically LOVED women who can pass a paper bag test and LOVE any women, black or NBBP, who have rich, famous fathers.

 Rashida Jones is not Black enough by Black peoples standards to be considered Black, though The New York Times continues to tell us that bigotry will go away as soon as evil white racists all die off so that multiculturalism can usher in a new era of peace and utter tranquility.

Wouldn't it be nice if society worked the way Stuff White People Like (SWPL) white people wish it did?

We at Stuff Black People Don't Like can only laugh at stories such as the one The New York Times has just published and will assuredly publish as 2010 Census data becomes available. To understand the real America, just read The Big Sort.

The stratification in America by race, income, political ideology and class is incredible right.

Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) can have their multiracial fairytale, but the truth is they only welcome members of the mulatto elite into the neighborhoods, though they will never tire from fighting for the rights of permanently disadvantaged Black people from afar.

And Rashida Jones still will never, ever be considered authentically Black.

Are white people war criminals in BRA?: The situation in Charlotte and American Renaissance

It is a well-known fact that by 2050, the United States of America will have a majority-minority population. What this means is anyone's guess, but based on current trends in credit allocation, mortgage defaults and access to low rates for car insurance, drop-out rates and with the abysmal record for majority Black cities and, the future isn't going to be the one depicted in the cartoon The Jetsons.

The first casualty as we approach this glorious moment of white displacement will be free speech and the right to assembly. Already language resistant to the changes transpiring in America has been labeled as an over-utilization of "Hate Facts" as few voices are able to articulate what is coming without being tarred and feathered, publicly humiliated and ultimately shunned from polite society.  

Omar Thornton and the Tuscon shooting show us quite clearly what Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs), who have all the power in Black Run America (BRA), truly desire in the coming months, years and decades to come.

A devotion to antiquated documents written by Dead White Males still is a trademark of those who believe the United States operates under its original governing ideals. BRA has no need for any of the Bill of the Rights, the US Constitution being the most consistently ignored document (but eagerly cited by enthusiastic devotees to Pre-Obama America) governing our daily lives.

Two stories highlight what the future holds, whether you decide to accept it or not. One is from Clayton County in 2005. We have talked about it before, but must highlight it again:
On his first day at work, the new sheriff of Clayton County called 27 employees into his office on Monday, fired them and had snipers stand guard on the roof as they were escorted out the door.
A judge on Tuesday ordered him to rehire the employees.

The sheriff, Victor Hill, 39, defended the firings and said he had the right to shake up the department in whatever way he felt necessary.

Sheriff Hill also said it was necessary to fire the workers the way he did, including taking some deputies home in vans normally used to transport prisoners because the deputies were barred from using county cars.
Sheriff Hill was among a spate of black candidates elected last year in the county, which was once dominated by rural whites. The fired employees included four of the highest-ranking officers, all of them white. Sheriff Hill told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that their replacements would be black.
A once thriving county outside of Atlanta, reduced to losing its accreditation, bus system, posting some of the highest foreclosure and crime rates in the nation all because white people fled to safer, "better" school districts thereby leaving Black people in charge. 

 Once in charge, they fired the remaining white police officers and marched them out with snipers on the roof aiming their guns upon them like war criminals.

Would it be wise to label all white people in America now war criminals? Since Newsweek magazine published a story claiming white babies are racist for their natural predilections for members of their own race, DWL's appear to waging a calculated war on nature, nurturing a sense of white guilt into all of these criminals.

Their crime? Being white, an unpardonable sin. 

Perhaps this is why no one dares discuss the gross disparities in rape by race. The UN wants declare rape a tool of war, but the rates of Black-on-white rape in America outnumber white-on-Black rape by, well, a lot:
In the United States in 2005, 37,460 white females were sexually assaulted or raped by a black man, while between zero and ten black women were sexually assaulted or raped by a white man.

What this means is that every day in the United States, over one hundred white women are raped or sexually assaulted by a black man.

A defeated people have no voice. The onus of guilt already weighs upon the shoulders of war criminals before they even stand trial. This is what transpires in BRA, with DWL's silencing any opposition to the awesome changes in America by declaring that racism is obviously a mental illness and that any opposed the changes in the United States is undeniably a racist.

Perhaps this is why so many articles are being published discussing the lack of Black people in certain vocations? Will it one day become a crime if a certain percentage of Black people isn't employed in a private or public sector job? It's already that way in South Africa.

Remember the name Jared Taylor? He was - without a shred of credible evidence - thrown under the bus in the Tuscon shooting. Now the organization he heads is being denied the right to peacefully assembly, thanks to the actions of an elected Black official in Charlotte:
 When a white nationalist magazine announced a conference in Charlotte, anarchists and other groups vowed to protest or disrupt the gathering.

But behind the scenes the conference apparently met an unexpected obstacle: Charlotte City Council member Patrick Cannon.

On Wednesday, American Renaissance magazine said plans for its annual conference are now in limbo because the hotel where it was scheduled to take place canceled the reservation.
An e-mail Cannon sent to a constituent early this week suggested he was lobbying local hotels to refuse to book American Renaissance.

Cannon wrote that he had contacted hotels and that "they seem to be cooperating."
"An attempt was made for accommodations at another hotel but based on what I ask to take place they were denied again," the e-mail said.

Jared Taylor, American Renaissance editor, said Cannon's e-mail violated the First Amendment.
"It's unconscionable (that) public officials would try to interfere in private contractual affairs," Taylor said. "We have never run into this before."

In a brief interview Wednesday, Cannon said he sent the e-mail to "update a constituent on where things stood."

"By no means would I be in the business of trying to violate someone's rights," Cannon said.
That this story isn't a national scandal shows you not only BRA's power, but the ability of DWL's to control all news and the direction of any and all debates. 
What do people expect is going to happen in America? The TSA already conditions us to accept a mindset of guilt before innocence.  Daring to hold a conference in defense of the historical majority population of the United States is now forbidden, with elected officials dedicated to defending the Constitution actively seeking to stop said conference and peaceful assembly of individuals from transpiring. 
When white people fled Detroit, the city fell to ruin. When white people fled Prince George's County, Birmingham, DeKalb County and... insert name of majority Black city here, that city or county saw a dramatic decline in standard of living for its citizens, a complete drop in quality of schools (despite an increase of spending per pupil) and overall quality of life. 

When white people fled Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans in 2005, what was left behind overwhelmed a city and required hired mercenaries to restore order. A day without white people... New Orleans during Katrina. 

Will we make it to 2050? With BRA failing before our eyes, increasing the vice around acceptable dialogue will become vital to holding the center together.

One thing should be crystal clear by now: white people are already considered war criminals by those running BRA. War criminals are marched around with snipers aiming high-powered rifles at their heads and completely denied any right to speak on their behalf, their guilt already presumed. 

You might not agree with American Renaissance, but freedom of speech and the freedom to assembly is increasingly under attack.

What will 2050 look like? Well, at least the Navy will be diverse.

#519. Jimmer Fredette of Brigham Young University

Jimmer Fredette scoring yet again in a BYU game
Basketball, as Bill Simmons makes clear in his tome The Big Book of Basketball, is a Black sport. Time magazine wrote this in 1977:
Nearly 65% of National Basketball Association players are blacks. Says Jerry West, the former superstar who is now coach of the Los Angeles Lakers: "When I first came into the league [in 1960], it was just starting to turn into a black league. And let's face it. This is a black league now." 
The growing black dominance in sports is evident in college athletics too. During the recent N.C.A.A. basketball playoffs, for example, Champion Marquette and Contenders Michigan and University of Nevada at Las Vegas each had only one white in their starting lineups. In N.C.A.A. football, most of 1976's top-ranked teams were loaded with black stars—in numbers far out of proportion to the percentage of black students on campus.
Black dominance in basketball (and the slow integration of college football, which became a rampaging flood) led to the destruction of the idea of white supremacy. The notion of a starting lineup of only white players as a viable option was destroyed when Texas Western (starting five Blacks) defeated lily-white Kentucky in the 1966 NCAA finals. Coached by Adolph Rupp, Kentucky’s all-white team would undergo one of the fatal blows against white supremacy that might prove fatal.   This is how Sports Illustrated remembered the game in 25 years after the fact:
Apparently, though, Rupp could see the forest for the trees. Midway through the 1965-66 season he halted practice and gathered his undefeated Rupp's Runts—no starter was taller than 6'5"—around him. He told them about the college basketball poll he'd seen in that morning's newspaper. "Boys," Rupp said in his scratchy Kansas twang, "when you go home tonight, I want you to look long and hard at these rankings. One. Two. Three. Kentucky, Duke, Vanderbilt. All from the South. And all white. Read it and remember. You'll never see it happen again."

Five years after College Park, a 7'1" black player named Tom Payne suited up for Rupp and Kentucky. Seven years after College Park, Alabama-George Wallace, governor—started five black players. In the 1980s, 82 of the 100 starters in the NCAA championship game were black. Indeed, from 1982 through '85, only one first-stringer on a national champion was white, Matt Doherty of North Carolina. Twenty-five years after College Park, 19 of the 20 starters on the four top-seeded teams in the 1991 tournament—UNLV, Ohio State, Arkansas and North Carolina—are black. The lone white player is Pete Chilcutt of North Carolina.

The point of these numbers, the best moral of all, is that after Texas Western rose to the cusp of a revolution, the denouement was so swift and total that it was hardly noticed. Now college basketball is all Harry's brothers.
The 2010 NCAA Tournament was one for the ages, with Butler and Duke providing a championship for the ages with seven or eight white guys on the floor the majority of the game. Basketball fans hate Duke, primarily for the team’s whiteness in an almost endless Black sea of hoops stars that Predominately White Institutions trot out. 

The Orlando Sentinel published an article in 2009 stating that NCAA Tournament teams had a lack of white players, though research from our good friend Richard Lapchick continues to show that those white players graduate at a much higher rate than Black basketball players. Why is that?

That same paper published a story detailing how the University of Florida has become a haven for white basketball players, where the thug culture so prevalent on most college teams is filtered with a safety net of fellow melanin-deficient athletes to pal around with:
But one thing is obvious: White players can feel as if they belong at Florida. Billy Donovan has cultivated an environment for the white player to flourish. Florida forward Chandler Parsons said he evaluated the white-player track record of schools when he was being recruited in 2007. 

"Youlook at any school in the past that has had a white guy do well,"Parsons said. "If you're a white recruit, you look at that stuff. Butyou really want to look at a school that fits your style of play. All black, all white, all Spanish, doesn't matter as long as you can flourish in that system."
That the two big sports – basketball and football – are dominated by Black athletes mean the lone white guys in locker rooms require instant bonding. Just ask Peyton Hillis what he experienced in the 2010 NFL season. When a white player dominates a sport that Blacks have for so long presided over, you’re bound to see resentment from Black athletes. 

Enter the next great white hope in basketball, Brigham Young scoring sensation Jimmer Fredette. Sports Illustrated once asked where the white athlete went and wrote these dismissive words:
Most kids, black and white, report that coaches generally are the ones who encourage positional segregation. But Mater Dei's Rollinson often encounters white parents who won't consider that their child might be good enough to play a "black" position at the college level. He says these parents see their son lining up at cornerback or wide receiver and say, "He'll never make it because he's not black." Rollinson tries to tell them their boy runs a 4.5 40-yard dash and has great hands, but they don't want to hear it. "They come right back and say, 'Don't give me that BYU story,' " Rollinson says.

Brigham Young is perhaps the most prominent exception to the black domination of sports. Relying almost exclusively on white talent, the Mormon school has fielded teams that have continually competed at the highest level. The football team sits perennially in the Top 20, making an occasional run at a national title. The basketball team has won 15 Western Athletic Conference titles, made 17 NCAA tournament appearances and produced a dozen All-Americas, and for a week in 1987 it held the No. 2 ranking in the country—yet the Cougars have never started more than one black. "I don't think I had ever played on or against an all-white team," says Van Horn, the former Ute. "When we played BYU, it was strange."

The paucity of African-American players on BYU teams has worked against them. "We haven't had the quickness that a black student-athlete has," says Roger Reid, a Cougars basketball coach for 19 years, seven of them as head coach. Nevertheless, BYU has beaten predominantly black teams from such schools as UCLA, Notre Dame and Virginia. The Cougars have defeated black teams that started games thinking that when push came to shove, their own athletic superiority would tell. San Diego Padres out-fielder Tony Gwynn learned this. As a junior point guard in 1980 he went to Provo, Utah, with his San Diego State team and got beaten badly. "Those BYU guys were flying through the air, jumping over guys, getting rebounds, and that's the first time I thought, These guys are really athletic," Gwynn says. "Our whole club was shocked."
Perhaps it fitting that Ferdette, college basketball’s leading scorer – a modern day version of Pistol Pete Maravich – had one of his best games of the season against that same San Diego State team. Scoring 43 points and leading a BYU team that had 4 or 5 players on the court at all time against an all-Black San Diego State squad, Ferdette dominated the game. 
But it is his race that has sports writers questioning whether he can compete at the next level:
From everywhere on the floor, Fredette is a relentless, ferocious scorer. His range stretches far beyond the 3-point line, and his deftness with the ball – not to mention his toughness – gets him to the basket and the free-throw line. He’s scoring in the 30s, the 40s on some nights – averaging a nation-best 27.4 points per game – and perhaps it’s so amazing because people just don’t see that coming from a 6-foot-2 Mormon out of upstate New York. There’s no debating Fredette’s greatness as a collegiate scorer, but most fascinating is projecting what kind of pro player he’ll be.
Conversations with multiple NBA general managers and scouts who’ve tracked Fredette’s progress result in one consensus: Almost no one agrees on anything. Perhaps there’s something about a white guard with American roots which causes such prejudging, stereotyping and skepticism to abound. Perhaps there’s something about a white guard with American roots which causes such rooting interest and overhype. People are forever trying to pin Fredette into a neat little comparative box. Most agree he could top out in the late lottery around 12 or 13 but probably won’t last past the mid-20s.

It’s funny how Fredette draws comparisons to Gonzaga’s Adam Morrison(notes) and Duke’s J.J. Redick(notes). They don’t play so much like him, but they sure are white guys. Thirty years ago, the best player in BYU history, Danny Ainge, would’ve been the highest-drafted player in school history had he told NBA teams he preferred pro basketball over pro baseball. He was a different athlete than Fredette – bigger, faster and more suited for the pro game. For whatever it was worth, there was no shortage of comparable players in the NBA.

“I was a guy who could run, had good speed, and never in my college career did anyone question my athleticism,” Ainge said. “If I wasn’t playing baseball, I would’ve certainly been one of the top five or six picks. I don’t think anyone in the NBA was thinking about that with me or Doug Collins. We were bigger. We were athletic.”
Fredette has been unstoppable this year, shooting the ball with a precision normally reserved for automatons on an assembly line, though an attempt at a breakaway slam dunk become fodder for ESPN analysts who pointed out that white guys really can’t jump.
But they sure can shoot lights out. 
Where is the diversity?
BYU is chastised for its lack of diversity constantly, as this Sports Illustrated article on University of Utah football coach Kyle Whittingham attacked the school for being, well, too white:
To get them there, Utah recruiters often must battle preconceived notions about the state. Before senior Shaky Smithson became a star returner at Utah (he leads the nation in punt returns, with 23.3 yards per touch), he was a star receiver and returner at East Los Angeles Community College. He was guarded when Utah's coaches first tried to woo him. He had visited a friend in Provo and been turned off by its lack of diversity. Persuaded that Salt Lake was different, Smithson took a visit. "It was a big eye-opener," he says. "Lot of restaurants, lot of clubs. There's a lot to do here, and the people, they accept you with open arms."

While BYU remains one of the nation's most monochromatic teams, Whittingham takes pleasure in pointing out that his is "the most diverse program in the country." A third of the Utes are white, a third African-American, a third Polynesian. Half are Mormon. Some are married, and some are married with children. "The beautiful thing about this team," Bergstrom says, "is that we're diverse, yet we can make fun of our differences and nobody gets upset about it."
If you are a parent reading this who has a talented white son that excels at football or basketball, consider sending them out west to schools like Colorado State, BYU, the Air Force Academy, Wyoming, Boise State, Montana (Division FCS), Rice, Stanford or a university that will play white athletes and offer a program such as Florida basketball does. 

Go where white players get the chance to play. The Southeastern Conference (SEC) equals 12 PWI schools (all with more than 85 percent white enrollment) that have football teams comprised of more than 65 percent Black athletes in football and 85 percent in basketball. Do they graduate? Who cares as long as they win games and championships!

If your kids play baseball, well, every college baseball program is overwhelmingly white. 

When you breakdown the decline of the United States, sports offer a direct window into how small, incremental changes through integration allowed positive images of Black people to percolate slowly into the white American mind.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: sports offer the primary positive examples of Black people in America. Jimmer and other talented white athletes threaten these images by showing that white players can compete at levels at or exceeding the talent of Black players. 

Now when sports fans see Jimmer Ferdette of BYU dominating a basketball game, they immediately laugh at his talents because they have conditioned to believe the only legitimate form of basketball is played by Black players. 

They experience a form of cognitive dissonance watching a white guy perform at levels that exceed that of even the best Black player. Because, after all, basketball is a Black man’s game. 

Just don’t tell that to Jimmer. Or Peyton Hillis. 

Stuff Black People Don’t Like includes Jimmer Fredette, yet another great white hope in basketball who will be surrounded by nine or ten Black players on his NBA team that will undoubtedly treat him like Pistol Pete was by the Hawks. 

You can bet the Utah Jazz will try and draft him.

Until then, he provides every white sports fan with an image of what white basketball actually looks like.

Errant snowballs, Chicken and Waffles for MLK Day and Navy Standards in Decline: SBPDL Re-dux

Didn't we warn people about acknowledging soul food and Black people's love for it?
This Web site started as a joke, a late-night idea conceived by a number of friends engaged in a conversation on forbidden topics. It’s evolved into something else entirely chronicling a nation in swift, virtually free-fall decline.

Three past entries are in the news again, necessitating a sequel of sorts. They include errant snowballs in Washington D.C.; Naval Academy Standards; and acknowledging Black people’s love of soul food.

Just like the soul food meal at NBC headquarters last February for Black History Month, the honoring of Black people through a meal of chicken and waffles seemed a good idea at the University of California-Irvine. However this meal broke one of the primary rules of Black Run America (never publicly acknowledge Black stereotypes) though the popular TV show Man vs. Food has showcased a popular Atlanta restaurant serving the exact items.

The offending meal will regrettably cause many heads to roll:
Students at the University of California-Irvine were irked when an on-campus dining facility served fried chicken and waffles in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, reports the Daily Pilot

The dinner came on the first night of the campus's 28th annual Martin Luther King Jr. symposium.
Although university representative Cathy Lawhon acknowledged that the decision to link the foods with MLK's name was insensitive, she said that the chef in question would not face disciplinary action from the university.

Lawhon said the Jan. 17 dinner was "put together at the last minute," according to the Los Angeles Times.
Regardless of intent, some students were offended by the nod to the culinary stereotype. "It's just another in a long line of small events on our campus that aren't meant to be taken in a certain way, but are at least questionable in their cultural legitimacy," Black Student Union director of communications John Murillo III told the Times.

The Times reports that dining service providers Aramark said they will offer cultural sensitivity training for chefs and managers in light of the event.

No word on if Flava Flav’s new chicken restaurant in Iowa will cause patron’s to engage in a random Beat Whitey riot.

Cafeteria managers, restaurant owners and any working in the food service industry be forewarned: do not promote stereotypical Black food dishes near any holiday that celebrates a Black figure or Black history month. It will be seen as painting Black people in a negative light, which can never occur in Black Run America.

It should be noted that out of 26,000 students, Cal-Irvine has roughly 550 Black students (or two percent of the undergraduate enrollment).

If snow and cold weather are among Black people’s worst nightmare, errant snowballs represent weaponized projectiles of frosty doom for the person who dares throw the missile. Just ask this Washington D.C. citizen who was hit with an errant snowball:
Tossing a snowball almost cost a man his life in Lake Ridge.

Tyree Merle Alexander, 40, was arrested early Thursday morning after he sliced another man's neck with a box cutter, Prince William County police said.

Alexander was shoveling snow around 4 a.m. Thursday on the 3800 block of Core Place in Lake Ridge. Authorities said Alexander was hit by a snowball thrown by a 23-year-old Woodbridge man. An argument ensued between the two, ending when Alexander produced a blade and cut his victim, police said.

Occupants of a nearby house came outside and began fighting with Alexander. The fracas was broken up when police arrived and took Alexander in to custody.

The victim was airlifted to a nearby hospital with life threatening injuries, but is expected to survive.

Unlike the Washington D.C Black detective who brought a gun to a snowball fight, this guy brought a knife. Errant snowballs and Black people don’t mix.
The Naval Academy has been in the news of late, with a Black, high ranking Navy officer proclaiming diversity as the future of the maritime force. The only way to achieve this glorious vision is to lower Naval Academy (and Coast Guard Academy) standards, with the previous requirements for admittance a precarious task for Black students.

Bruce Fleming, a professor at the Academy, pointed out the absurdity of diluting the officer pool with the poisonous, toxic idea of diversity and created a minor controversy in 2009. Now, he’s back with a vengeance:
Fleming wrote a piece last year exposing the fact that the USNA had a “two-tiered” system of admission that was designed to bring more minorities into the academy. (Since access to the full article has expired, reporting on the article is available here.) And he began speaking to academy alumni about the lower standards.  

"We’ll do anything to get non-white students,” he said,  in order to appear more diverse and improve the football team.  According to Fleming, the admissions system is two-tiered because  minority candidates have lower test scores and grades than their counterparts. In short,  Fleming says that the Academy is rejecting better qualified white applicants to admit minority candidates with less impressive credentials.  The USNA has been very aggressive on the affirmative action front in recent years.  In 2009, Adm. Gary Roughead, the chief of naval operations, went so far as to say that  “diversity is the No. 1 priority” at the academy. (Gee, I guess training warriors and officer’s is now #2).

But Fleming, who has served on the academy’s admissions board,  goes even further.   While white applicants are required to secure a nomination by a member of congress or other federal official, minority candidates are sometimes given what he calls “a pro forma nomination to make it legit.”
But it gets even worse. As the Associated Press reports:

“Fleming told The Associated Press that midshipmen who struggle are given easier coursework or unlimited tutoring, breeding resentment among students who expected to get a first-rate education along with their military training. The environment is particularly toxic for talented black midshipmen, he said, because they are perceived by some classmates as less-qualified.
‘My students are disillusioned beyond belief,’ Fleming said. ‘They see people being coddled for political reasons or racial reasons or sports reasons.’

The result, he said, is a watered-down officer corps that weakens the military. Navy leaders haven’t fully articulated their reasoning for wanting more minority officers, he said.
‘What I hear is, what the enlisted people want is an officer who won’t get them killed,’ he said.”
The Navy apparently doesn’t care for Fleming’s honesty.  Even though he was recommended for a merit pay increase by his supervisors, it was denied by the Navy brass.  So Fleming filed a complaint.   While he cannot discuss the details, he says that he is very satisfied with the result.

We learned in the Fort Hood shooting that diversity can never be the casualty of any event that transpires in Black Run America, because an increasing of diversity is the primary goal of every institution in BRA. Regardless of the consequences, diversity is the primary goal, equating to a replacement of qualified individuals with unqualified Black people possessing a collectivist mentality.

The United States military (save Special Forces and Air Force pilots) is a testament to this philosophy. Who are we fooling; every institution in America is a testament to this philosophy whether government, academic or private sector.

BRA will collapse into itself clinging desperately to the prevailing ideology of egalitarianism, with every television channel broadcasting propitiations to a belief system that no one ever believed in the first place save those sociopathic enough to compete for positions of power.

There’s nothing to laugh at anymore. World Star Hip Hop (the best Black Web site) broadcasts the unvarnished, uncensored truth of the growing Black underclass and people commenting at the stories posted there that highlight atrocious behavior find humor in the visual proceedings they watch.
In short, you need to understand what we write here is not hate, but a delineation of Hate Facts.

And concealing Hate Facts from normal Americans is a task even the hardened gatekeeper and battle-tested censor is incapable of succeeding at today.

Homeroom Segregation in Pennsylvania, Black Mother Arrested for Sending Kids to White School District: Where the hell is Superman!

Superman!! Where are you?
Does anyone see the inherent contradiction in two stories that have galvanized the nation this week? You have a school that has had huge disparity in white and Black test scores that believes segregating students by race in homeroom and giving them Black mentors will by osmosis grant them the ability to perform better on tests. Then you have the ultimate tale of woe, a Black mother living in government housing who sends her kids to a white school so that they can get a better education.

The story from Pennsylvania of homeroom segregation:
A high school has defended its decision to segregate students by race and gender.

The scheme, at McCaskey East High School in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, separates black students from the rest of the school pupils, and then further breaks it down into black females and black males.

The separation is only for a short period  - six minutes each day and 20 minutes twice a month - but it has drawn criticism for raising the spectre of racial segregation.
Today the school's principal defended the policy.

Bill Jimenez said the school noticed that black students were not performing as well as other students, and that research had shown that same-race classes with strong same-race role models led to better academic results…

He told 'One of the things we said when we did this was, "Let's look at the data, let's not run from it. Let's confront it and see what we can do about it".'

The idea came from Angela Tilghman, an instructional coach at McCaskey East.

She said statistics had shown about a third of McCaskey's African-Americans scored proficient or advanced in reading on last year's Pennsylvania System of School Assessment tests, compared with 60 per cent of white students and 42 per cent of students overall.

In mathematics, only 27 per cent of black students scored proficient or advanced.
These Black kids aren’t doing that great by attending an integrated are they? There scores are consistent with Black scores nationwide.  So what does the Black mother of two Black children living in government housing think is going to happen by sending her kids from the ghetto of Akron to a better (better is an educational synonym for white) school district

Will they magically find that Waiting for “Superman” produces better educational results there, surrounded by white pupils?:
Ohio mother of two Kelley Williams-Bolar was released from jail on Wednesday after serving nine days for falsifying records so that her two daughters could attend a better school.

Williams-Bolar was convicted by a jury of using her father's address to claim residency status that would allow her children to attend a higher-performing suburban school.

While her sentence was light in terms of jail time, Williams-Bolar was put on probation for two years and ordered to complete 80 hours of community service. The conviction may threaten her ability to get the teaching license she was working on.

According to NPR,

And the judge felt strongly enough about it in this case that the judge has written a letter to the State Department of Education saying this woman has no record, please don't make this a reason to pull her license.
The case has struck a cord across the nation with many sympathetic to the struggle of a mother trying to get the best education for her children. The racial undertones of Williams-Bolar's case have also not gone unnoticed.

Syracuse University Professor Boyce Watkins, who has written about the case, told HLN,
"I felt that the sentence was draconian and really, the case of Kelley WIlliams-Bolar, it's such a microcosm of everything that is wrong with America when it comes to access to educational quality, when it comes to economic inequality and when it comes to inequality in the criminal justice system."
Although many parents lie about residency, Williams-Bolar's case is unique because other parents never land in court. According to NPR, the mother fought to keep her children in the school, while other Ohio parents quickly removed their children from the school if they were confronted by district officials over residency issues.
 The United States of America, for roughly 50 – 60 years, has been built upon a lie. The educational system in the United States spends more on education and per pupil than any other nation on earth. While white students and Asians perform at levels that would rank the country among the elite, an anchor scrapping the bottom of a sadly destitute and bleak academic ocean pulls the overall score down.

Parents move their children to “better” neighborhoods and school districts, in the hopes of removing their kids from a bad element that curiously gets in more disciplinary problems at an astonishing rate. Property value in these Whitopia’s is tied directly to the school system and when that system harbors to many Black students those white families that can will move away in search of that elusive white whale, the “better” school district.

Williams-Bolar thought that by sending her kids to a “better” school district they would post higher scores on reading, math and science aptitude tests. Such is not the case, as the pernicious racial gap in learning is a persistent beast haunting the educational-equality dreams of all Disingenuous White Liberals.
In Wake County, North Carolina, forced busing to achieve economic equality is coming to an end:
IN RALEIGH, N.C. The sprawling Wake County School District has long been a rarity. Some of its best, most diverse schools are in the poorest sections of this capital city. And its suburban schools, rather than being exclusive enclaves, include children whose parents cannot afford a house in the neighborhood. 

But over the past year, a new majority-Republican school board backed by national tea party conservatives has set the district on a strikingly different course. Pledging to "say no to the social engineers!" it has abolished the policy behind one of the nation's most celebrated integration efforts. 

And as the board moves toward a system in which students attend neighborhood schools, some members are embracing the provocative idea that concentrating poor children, who are usually minorities, in a few schools could have merits - logic that critics are blasting as a 21st-century case for segregation.
One would assume that a sensible idea is having kids attend schools in the neighborhood that their parents live in, instead of riding buses for hours a day to achieve some sort of economic balance. One group in the south receives a disproportionate amount of free lunches in school, so this policy would be virtually impossible to implement in most states. 

It’s time to end the insanity. What is in front of our eyes is a truth that once powered the United States; now we are powered by a force that desires locating the next top NASA engineers from a racial group completely deficient in the area of scientific competence

You can only laugh when you read the story of segregation in Pennsylvania to try and improve Black scores, while they already attend school with white students. Juxtapose that with a Black woman living in government housing in Akron sending her kids to a “better” – ahem, white - school system in the vain hope that it may improve their test scores.

The hysteria of these stories shows how powerful Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) are right now, though they send their children to private schools far removed from the crumbling Black underclass.

But for those paying attention (H/T as always to Steve Sailer), the gaping holes in the primary notion holding Black Run America (BRA) together – coerced equality - is breaking apart.

Black people and Self-esteem

In the next five years, if trends continue unabated, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will be forced off of television. Highlighting movies from a bygone era, littered with faces whiter than the ones nominated for the 2011 Academy Awards, this channel operates in direct conflict with the new regime dominating us today – Black Run America (BRA).

Seeing films that pay tribute to a time before integration (what we call Pre-Obama America) is just too much to stomach for 21st century Americans – Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) and Black people alike – since they glorify a nation that treated Black people as second class citizens.

Every movie made that fails to showcase diversity in a positive light will be remade, more than likely starring Jaden and Willow Smith. The son and daughter of box-office star Will Smith, Jaden already remade The Karate Kid and Willow will star in a remake of the beloved play about an orphan named Annie.
No word yet on whether a white couple will portray the adoptees in the film or if it will be a white Hollywood actress in need of a cool, chic accessory.

Black kids need positive examples of Black people to emulate and movies might improve Black people’s self-esteem knowing that they could grow up to be stars too (though most Black kids grow up believing they can make a living in professional sports, something that many professional Black athletes fail to end up doing).

Watching movies that lionize a stifling world of rigid conformity and banal whiteness, Black people in America can no longer endure the sights of movies that run on TCM. As we learned in 1954 with a fictional Doll Study used to justify low self-esteem among Black children - which helped ensure the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Brown in that landmark case ending segregation – it vital that we do nothing to damage Black people’s self-worth.

Perpetuating images of a happy, prosperous America before integration – as TCM does – can no longer be allowed, for it might destroy Black people and their self-esteem. If poor test scores, high dropout rates, disproportionate crime rates, being incubators for sexual transmitted diseases, poor credit scores, a net-worth of $5 dollars for single Black mothers, a horrible track record for running major metropolitan cities and once prosperous counties, and white flight occurring once a few Black families move into the neighborhood doesn’t impact Black self-esteem negatively, nothing will.

Many have argued that seeing positive examples of Black people in academic settings will improve Black children’s test scores in science, math and English/ reading comprehension, areas that need drastic improvement if the vocational goals for Blacks are to exceed being a barber.

It was stated the Mein Obama would have a positive influence on Black people and radically improve the scholastic achievements of Black students. The election of a half-white dude to the Oval Office has proven to offer no quantifiable improvements in Black student’s performance, though the rate that Black students are disciplined in schools has risen dramatically.

We’ve already said it before: Black people love being Black. They see nothing wrong with how they act, what they wear and how the world views them. In fact they are shocked when private businesses enact dress codes or deny them entry, cities enact curfews and society demands obedience to laws that seem to prey upon Black people only.

Every racial group in America – even DWLs – realize that housing prices plummet when Black people move near; that school districts measure of effectiveness rise and fall with the amount of Black enrollment; and that malls and businesses shutter once they go Black (they never come back).
Every group, that is, save Black people:
In 2002, Jennifer Crocker and Jean Twenge conducted a “meta-analysis of studies of self-esteem.” They intended to discover which American ethnic group would score the highest on a self-esteem test. They also wanted to identify how each group’s self-esteem ranked in comparison to how positively society regarded that group. The researchers proceeded by making 712 self-esteem comparisons among five ethnic groups: Native Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, African Americans and European Americans.

The outcomes surprised Crocker and Twenge. They learned that African Americans scored the highest in the self-esteem category, but ranked last in the area of Society’s Positive Regard for the group. They concluded that African Americans consistently make positive statements about themselves even though society does not view them positively. European Americans were second, Latinos third, Native Americans fourth, and Asian Americans were last. Asian Americans’ ranking surprised the researchers because, outside of European Americans, the other groups hold them in high regard.
This is a Black world now, despite continued Black failures in high school, college, law bar exams and a complete reliance on the government for jobs and entitlements. It’s becoming obvious that this world can’t last forever, but one would never gather this from observing studies that discuss rates of self-esteem among Black people.

The belief that movies should reflect greater diversity and that a re-writing of actual history to conform to a pleasant Afrocentricism worldview is necessary to improve Black people’s self-esteem and ultimately destroy the racial gap in achievement belies the facts:
Indeed, black students enrolled in Afrocentric educational programs receive a full-course diet in self-esteem enhancement, all of it positioned on the shaky theoretical ground that injecting racial pride into black children will help them overcome obstacles to academic success.

But again, the value of self-esteem for black children is highly questionable, even if it does not come packaged in Afrocentrism.

Self-esteem theory made its first dramatic impact upon American schools in 1954, when the Supreme Court accepted that school segregation damaged the self-esteem of African-American children in its Brown v. Board of Education ruling. Low self-esteem, the Court said, "affects the motivation of a child to learn, and has a tendency to retard children’s educational and mental development." According to Barbara Lerner, this proposition makes three questionable assumptions about blacks: (1) Low self-esteem is the major cause of low academic achievement; (2) Blacks have a lower self-esteem than whites; and (3) Changing white attitudes toward blacks will raise black self-esteem. Taken together, these faulty notions provide the reasoning behind the current repudiation of high standards and expectations in our public schools.

In reality, black children at the same grade level and in the same school system as white children display a higher sense of self-esteem. African Americans usually report "slightly higher levels of agreement with statements about taking a positive attitude toward oneself, judging oneself to be a person ‘of worth,’ and being generally satisfied with oneself."

Studies also show that, like whites, enhancement of global self-concept is not a potent intervention for academic improvement for African-American adolescents.22 Stanley Rothman and his colleagues at Smith College’s Center for the Study of Social and Political Change found that while the self-esteem levels of blacks are now at least as high as those of whites, the average academic attainment among African-American students is still below that of whites. They conclude that the evidence "appears to show quite conclusively that the low self-esteem hypothesis is neither a necessary nor sufficient explanation of African-American achievement levels."
Black people see nothing wrong with Antoine Dodson, YouTube videos that display fights in public places and in fact glorify them at such places as World Star Hip Hop, a vast compendium glorifying Black achievement.

Atlantic monthly reported that in 30 years, all Black women will be considered morbidly obese. One wonders if the extra layers of skin will have any impact on their psychological well being, since Black women have some of the highest of self-esteem in the world:
African-American women will say positive things about themselves that Caucasian women are not comfortable with saying about themselves (Dent 1).

Rushton found that African-American women have equal or higher self-esteem levels then Caucasians or Latinos (Rushton 9). Gray-Little found that not only African-American adult women have higher self-esteem than Caucasian women but the same is true in children and adolescents (Gray-Little 17). Abba supports the idea that African-American's hold higher self-esteem standings throughout life (Abbas 2). Differences in self-esteem between African-American women and Caucasian's are less during childhood years and grow to adulthood (Twenge 1).
One study (found here) states that a conclusive link to why Black people have higher self-esteem cannot be determined. Indeed scientists studying the high rates of Black self-esteem have been befuddled in attempts at ascertaining why such rates exist, when empirical evidence for this belief is obviously non-existent.

The United States of America has been forced to lower standards in every profession (militarily, law, medical, academia, police, firefighters) at the private and public level to accommodate Black people’s inability to perform at the same level of whites, yet they maintain a higher level of self-esteem then Asians who outperform even white people.

Entire counties outside of major metropolitan areas that were once prosperous and white have been ceded to Black people and new counties further from these cities have become havens, enclaves for whites (and Asians) who desire a high standard of living.

DWLs price Black people out of living in their cities, yet utilize their relationship as the guardians of Blacks to position themselves as morally superior to untouchable whites.

Through it all, Black people maintain the highest rates of self-esteem while also maintaining the highest rates of unemployment, incarceration and contributing to the continued decline in educational standards despite the highest rates of educational spending in the world.

White kids and Asians don’t participate in Waiting for Superman, a task left to the Crusading White Pedagogues and their Black students.

All of the classic movies that are on TCM will one day be remade, with Black faces thankfully subbing for the smiling, ethereal white faces. Like the Soviet Union who once airbrushed pictures of people who had fallen out of favor with the Communist party, Black Run America will begin airbrushing out of United States history all memories of Pre-Obama America.

Black test scores won’t improve. Black-run cities, counties, schools and local governments will continue to crumble and when Black people flee what they have wrought and enter white enclaves, white people will move away, perpetuating this absurd tale.

And through it all Blacks will still have the highest rates of self-esteem…

Where are the Black people? The 2011 Academy Awards Nominees are Whiter then ever

Perhaps the Oscar should be white instead of gold
Editor’s note: Posts on self-esteem and shame are delayed for one more day.

Everyone loves movies. The escapism offered by viewing a film grants us the opportunity to visit exotic locations and live vicariously through glamorous actors and actresses. Computer Generated Images (CGI) - produced almost entirely by white people - have led to such films as Avatar, the entire Pixar resume of films and countless action movies, allowing directors (almost all white) to utilize scripts (written almost exclusively by white people) that will eventually be scored beautifully by composers (almost all white) while actors and actresses (with few prominent roles going to Black actresses) work their magic in front of the camera.

Watching movies (and television), one would imagine the United States still has a population that is 90 percent white, as it did in the mid-1960s. Though token Black characters appear in movies cast as characters without historical equals (sometimes in situations that have no historical precedent or basis in fact), Hollywood remains an institution teemed in an astounding whiteness.

Traditionally the embodiment of the most progressive, Stuff White People Like (SWPL), Disingenuous White Liberal (DWL) mindset and agenda, Hollywood is tragically stuck in a situation where they must market their movies to the rest of America. Because of the scholastic shortcomings and ineptitude of Black people, vocations such as director, screenwriter, producer, composer and the small armies of support staff that work on the production of  films are overwhelming white.

You aren't handed jobs in life, you earn them, which is a contradictory concept to our entitled Black friends. 

Whenever a Black director, screenwriter, composer, actor or actress comes along and woes Hollywood, critics (most of whom are white and rabidly DWL) and the American public, they will be pushed to the moon, regardless of their portfolio.

It is a constant, deafening refrain come awards season when Hollywood gathers to congratulate itself for producing vapid films of questionable merit and shockingly little entertainment value that the monster of enforced, codified diversity rears its ugly, ever-expanding head.

Hollywood films and television shows preach an undying devotion to the tenets of diversity (glorifying every racial group – save white people - and normalizing every sexual orientation, life-style, etc.) and never fail to pay homage to the concept of Black Run America (BRA), but when Oscar season comes around (and the Emmy’s) few Black people are ever nominated and the Academy Awards voters will be forever castigated if they fail to bestow the  Oscar upon that Black person who is nominated.

Take this CNN article, “Where’s the Diversity at the Oscars?” which laments the paucity of Black faces up for awards. Isn’t it 2011, not 1951? Where is the progressivism? Certainly not the cabinet of the new Republican Ohio governor, but you’re telling us that a Gabrielle Sidibe film couldn’t be found precious enough to be nominated?

Black actresses have a tough time finding roles that will win them acclaim. It’s been nine years since Black history was made at the 2002 Oscars, when Halle Berry and Denzel Washington both won Oscars. Other than that year, the past 70 years of the Oscars have been nearly monochromatic in their whiteness, with a few token Blacks winning every now and then to maintain the mirage of diversity.

What does that CNN article say?:
After the Academy Awards ceremony in 2010, there was a great deal of hope that the glass ceiling had finally been shattered in Hollywood.
"The Kathryn Bigelow" effect was coined by some industry observers who believed that her win for "The Hurt Locker," the first Oscar for a woman director, would open doors of opportunity for females behind the camera. The riveting film "Precious" yielded a best supporting actress win for African-American performer Mo'Nique, and the first ever statuette for an African-American screenwriter in the best adapted screenplay category went to Geoffrey Fletcher.

But that was last year.

This year there was a decided dearth of diversity in the Oscar nominations. There are no women or people of color among the director nominees, and the acting nominees are all white. Javier Bardem, who is up for best actor for his role in "Biutiful,' is a Spaniard and therefore European.

Which raises the question: Why in an era of ever increasing diversity among movie audiences is that not being reflected among the nominees for Hollywood's most prestigious award? Where are the diverse faces both in front of and behind the cameras?

It's a complex issue that involves both supply and demand. 

But historically far fewer meaty dramatic roles, which are beloved by the academy, have been written for or awarded to actors of color, and women behind the camera are greatly outnumbered by men.

"The stories that we would really like to tell usually don't get greenlit," said Rocky Seker, a former creative developer for a director with Sony Pictures and now a film curator who runs Invisible Woman ... Black Cinema at Large. "We're just not taken seriously. It's all a moneymaking issue."

Both groups also find it difficult to break into the big-budget Hollywood films that garner the attention to carry the momentum needed for nominations. Seker said she often comes across wonderfully made black independent films that just aren't able to get big-studio backing or distribution deals.

While Debra Granik and Lisa Cholodenko have both received critical acclaim for their turns as directors of "Winter's Bone" and "The Kids Are All Right," respectively, their films did not enjoy the same media attention as "Black Swan" or "The Social Network," whose male directors were nominated. (Granik and Cholodenko both were nominated for their screenwriting efforts.)

Cathy Schulman is a producer of the Oscar-winning film "Crash" and president of Women In Film, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing sexual equality in filmmaking. She said that when there are 10 nominations for best film, but only five director nominees, invariably it means someone will be slighted.

"On the one hand, I am very encouraged to see that there are women sprinkled throughout most of the categories, with the continued strength as we've seen before in art direction, in music and in other areas that we have consistently seen a strength in," Schulman said. "What does disappoint is the lack of women in the writer, director, producer roles and some of the other key departments like cinematography and editorial, though there is one woman, Pamela Martin, who has been nominated for editorial (for "The Fighter") and that is certainly well-deserved."

Martha Lauzen, executive director of the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University, said, "There are lots of reasons at both the individual level as well as the industry level that converge to suppress diversity both on the screen and behind the scenes."

Lauzen added, "The film industry does not exist in a vacuum; it is part of a larger culture, and our attitudes about gender and race are extremely deeply held. Those attitudes don't change overnight or with an Oscar win."
Hollywood and television have the ability to completely shape public opinion, steering debates on key issues any which way they desire. It is movies and television (plus sports) that have provided the bulk of positive (wholly fictional) examples of Black people, and it is through this medium that beloved stars like Will Smith, Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington and Jamie Foxx have become household names.

We have reached a point in Black Run America (BRA) where we have been trained to see Black people prominently in movies, television and sports, so that when they don’t appear racism is only acceptable culprit. The absence of Black people in any situation, whether it be vocation, avocation, awards ceremony or in academia can only be attributed to racism.

This is how the DWL mind thinks and increasingly all minds in America.

That the Oscars lack any Black nominees for Best Actor and Actress, Supporting Actor and Actresses, Director or for any discernable characters in Best Picture translates to unrepentant racism on the part of an entire industry that has been solely dedicated the complete, methodical destruction of anything resembling Pre-Obama America for the past 50 years (just take a look at Black Fictional Heroes).

Here at Stuff Black People Don’t Like, we don’t hide the fact that we love movies. It is obvious that movies and television have provided ample opportunities to promote agendas that would never, ever be accepted without careful behavioral modification placed in the story-lines (just check out White Dog if you don't believe us).

It’s just fitting that an entire industry is now thrown under the proverbial bus for not placating Black actors and actresses and the spattering of Black directors, screenwriters, producers, composers, animators, special effects designers, etc., enough.

A beast of monumental proportions has been unleashed in America. Black Run America (BRA) has made us so dependent on Black people that anytime a dearth of them are present, we feel racism is the only logical explanation for this situation.
