The Holy Trinity

“More intelligent members of the dominant group are just better at legitimizing and protecting their privileged position than less intelligent members. In modern America, where blacks are mobilized to challenge racial inequality, this means that intelligent whites say — and may in fact truly believe — all the right things about racial equality in principle, but they just don’t actually do anything that would eliminate the privileges to which they have become accustomed.”

Congressman: Some Border Kids Are ‘Not Children’

blood-just-like-the-atlantic:

Holdon, I speak Old White Man. Let me translate.

"These kids are from places that have been ravaged by American via imperialism and ludicrous drug policies, and as such have been robbed of their childhood and innocence, are forced to grow up too fast and are forced out of their home countries, and therefore do not meet my standards of what it means to be a middle-class white American child, so let’s send them back into places where they may well be the victims of violence, because fuck ‘em."

An expert in one of the newer world languages—Old White Man—has thoughtfully translated this oration for us!

the irony in “these kids have been brought up in a culture of thievery. a culture of murder, of rape” sound like america to me

Soul II Soul - Back To Life (However Do You Want Me)

Blacks embrace capitalism, the most unnatural and outstanding example of man against himself that history can offer. After the Civil War, the form of slavery changed from chattel to economic slavery, and we were thrown onto the labor market to compete at a disadvantage with poor whites. Ever since that time, our principle enemy must be isolated and identified as capitalism. The slaver was and is the factory owner, the business man of capitalist Amerika, the man responsible for employment, wages, prices, control of the nation’s institutions and culture. It was the capitalist infrastructure of Europe and the U.S. which was responsible for the rape of Africa and Asia. Capitalism murdered those 30 million in the Congo. Believe me, the European and Anglo-Amerikan capitalist would never have wasted the ball and powder were it not for the profit principle. The men, all the men who went into Africa and Asia, the fleas who climbed on that elephant’s back with rape on their minds, richly deserve all that they are called. Every one of them deserved to die for their crimes. So do the ones who are still in Vietnam, Angola, Union of South Africa (U.S.A.!!). But we must not allow the emotional aspects of these issues, the scum at the surface, to obstruct our view of the big picture, the whole rotten hunk. It was capitalism that armed the ships , free enterprise that launched them, private ownership of property that fed the troops. Imperialism took up where the slave trade left off. It wasn’t until after the slave trade ended that America, England, France, and the Netherlands invaded and settled in on Afro-Asian soil in earnest. As the European industrial revolution took hold, new economic attractions replaced the older ones; chattel slavery was replaced by neoslavery. Capitalism, “free” enterprise, private ownership of public property armed and launched the ships and fed the troops; it should be clear that it was the profit motive that kept them there.

It was the profit motive that built the tenement house and the city project. Profit and loss prevents repairs and maintenance. Free enterprise bought the monopolistic chain store into the neighborhood. The concept of private ownership of facilities that the people need to exist brought the legions of hip-shooting, brainless pigs down upon our heads, our homes, our streets. They’re there to protect the entrepreneur!! His chain store, and his property that you are renting, his bank.

Black capitalism, black against itself. The silliest contradiction in a long train of spineless, mindless contradictions.
