You down with O.P.P.?

I think most people who are into hip-hop are aware that there have been very few prominent white MCs, but how often do people stop to wonder why, exactly, haven’t there been more?

Racist bastard that I am, I always assumed that it was because rappin’ is fuckin’ hard, and there just aren’t very many white people who can do it very well, which is, coincidentally, also my theory on why there haven’t been very many prominent female rappers.

But then I think we know I’ve got my share of issues. After all, it can be difficult to convince women to have sex with you when you’ve got more than one chin. (Thank God for prostitution!)

Tom Breihan may not have such issues, but he does happen to be one of the more prominent white fans of hip-hop, which is an issue in itself. Or is it? In fact, Breihan suggests, in his review of Jason Tanz’ new Other People’s Property: A Shadow History of Hip-Hop in White America, the main reason there aren’t more prominent white rappers is because race these days is such a non-issue.

(I also reviewed the book today for my own site.)

You see, it used to be the case that white people were naturally drawn to black music, becuase it’s more dangerous and sexy than most white music, but they preferred if it was performed by some sort of white intermediary figure. Hence Elvis Presley and the white man stealing rock and roll right out from under the black man.
But now we’re to the point where white people don’t have such hang ups. They’re still drawn to black music, but no for any sexual reasons; it’s just that black music is naturally better. As such, it follows that they’re no longer interested in having black music dumbed down for them by some Elvis figure.

Which sounds like a decent enough theory. Progress, even. You guys know I’m into progress except when it comes to my own waist line, in which case there may not be any progress between now and my impending death from a heart attack at the ripe old age of 39.

But I’m not sure how much I’m buying this into theory. I’m not saying there hasn’t been any progress on the race front since the 1960s, but there may have been a lot less than some of us would like to think. On the one hand, it’s true that black music is more accepted in the mainstream today than it was then, but I’m not sure to what extent white people’s relationship with black music has changed since then.

Do white people who listen to black music not it enjoy because, at least on some level, they’re drawn to some sort of perceived otherness in it, the same way that a lot of white bitches, on the low, like to have sex with black men (just not me)? If not, how do you explain this current rash of blackface hipster parties on college campuses and this general fascination with LCD rap, as if that’s the only thing the black community has to offer.

Speaking of white rappers, Jamie Radford did an interview with Jus Rhyme from ego trip’s (White) Rapper Show (who also happens to be interviewed in this book). It gets into some issues having to do with white people’s relationship with hip-hop.

    they love our music because deep down they know we are better than them…there are always exceptions but justin timberlake isnt one of them…neither is Fergaliscious…or whateva her name is…if you like hip hop you have a rebellious nature in you…white kids can get out of boring white culture or lack there of by dipping into ours with this music because you know a majority of them couldnt imaginge having black friends…with that said…this is the closest they could get to rubbing elbows with us…some do it on a personal level and you know what those are the ones who get respect from the black community because when they see us they see people and culture not black negroes…and vice versa…we deal with whites accordingly…you treat us “black” we will treat you “white”…i think i got off on a tangent…oh well…let it burn…

    gotta agree with N-cred on this one tho

    I never trust white people with black art it’s always about profit to them and their own interest I don’t wanna see the same shit that happened with rock n roll happen to hiphop.

    These dudes made elvis king of a genre he practically stole I aint respect that shit he takes all the glory and fame for something he aint help create and he takes all the credit and shit.

    but hiphop is way to cultural for them so it’s quite funny that when they try to do it ,it’s a bit corny

    I think its a whole “forbidden fruit” type of deal. The dangerous, taboo art form that their parents dont like (just like rock n roll in the 50′s). Plus the beats are as catchy as any music out there because of all the sampling that can be used.

    I dont think you can pinpoin any one reason why white kids are drawn to rap. I mean, you probably could choose one group of CAC’s and ask why does that certin group listen to rap.
    I say that to say that theres some kids who just love the music, feel the music. Theres some kids out there (believe it or not) that identify with what the rappers are talkin about, have seen the same shit and lived the same shit. Some people think just because they’re white that they dont live in the same conditions as any other race. Some kids just want to rebel and scare their parents, and some kids are looking for an identity.
    Its an ignorant question, its like trying to explain why anyone likes rap music. They all have their own reasons, their own answers. It would be closed minded to think that this question wasnt retorical, IMO.

    @ fern- i can tell you for sure that it isnt a forbidden fruit type of thing; i got into hip-hop with run-dmc, whodini, and de la — not exactly the most sinister of groups, right? and i havent exactly deviated from the conscious/avant-garde set either.
    –in my house we had michael jackson, sly and the family stone, aretha and many many more black artists. maybe this is unusual for the average white household, but i never made the distinction that there was a “better” race of people, and as far as there being better music made, that is purely subjective. i think most of us would agree with that.

  • Were Read 2 Def

    It is Wu-Tang’s fault that white kids like rap. Trust me.

  • blaQ

    black culture is more creative than most others…simple. we created 90% of the popular genres today.

    it has nothing to do with “taboo”..thats just an excuse. black music is just better, more exciting and creative. rock n roll had barely moved since whites took over it.

    most of yall are fuckin retarded, white people, overall, listen to rap music for the same reason that people listen to anything and like it, THEY RELATE TO IT IN SOME WAY!, granted there are those groups of people who love to follow the trends and think they are cool and don’t listen to it for the right reasons, but its like this with ALL races and ALL forms of music, believe it or not there are in fact white people out there who listen to rap cause they genuinely like it and relate to it in some way, and everyone saying that black people somehow “own” hip-hop are even more retarded, yeah sure black people might of started hip-hop but you can’t own a musical genre, its impossible and is just an example of people being greedy and their insecurities coming out, its impossible to own an art form, the first person who made a film was probably white, but white people don’t claim to own film cause that would be fuckin stupid, sure black people started rap but anyone has the right to like it or do it, no matter what race they are.

  • EnglandRepresent

    Afro-Americans have gotta be some of the most ignorant, dumb muthafuckas alive…..rash generalisation? Yup. DJ N-Cred’s assertions that white people like rap cos they wanna be black? most ridiculous shit I ever heard. The US rap game is different to the UK game but one of the most talented and respected rappers in the UK is Skinnyman, liked by black peeps and whites alike, cos he’s dope. I’m black and personally I like rap cos yeah I can relate to it but I’m also an educated brother and I relate to the lyricism in rap, plain and simple. There’s an equal amount of talented UK white rappers as there are black and they share pretty much an even sector of the market. The reason it ain’t the same in the US is cos no doubt whites are scared to put themselves out there cos they’ll get ridiculed not only by blacks but by whites as well. Its cos the stereotypical hip-hop MC is black and it takes some fuckin nuts to step outside the mould see Skinnyman and Eminem. And all this bullshit talk about Bol’s interview, leave it the fuck alone you faggots, who gives a fuck what he looks like, he’s a fuckin writer not a TV personality.

  • Viski

    “The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE” your a dumbass and i did read your last post so dont post that kind of bullshit up here. THough your points are valid about early history…society is so far removed from that period that you cannot possibly say that. We have transformed so much sence early civilization that saying something like that is rather ignorant, and completly false. I am white and i love rap music i cant say why but i no black person now a days is able to tell you why either cause hip hop has changed so much that it really doesnt discuss problems within the black community. Hip hop is good because it has rhythem and that does come from black culture im not denying that so there might be soimething better about black music than the original music white people produced, saying the reason behind that is because whites are inferior to blacks is completly false

  • E AKA THE REAL NORIEAGA

    Rap music is just superior to other forms of music because it relies heavily on the spoken word the most powerful musical tool.

    @DJ NCRED I get some of the stuff your saying ie. white people changing history to make themselves protagonists. But the instance you say one race is better thant the other you come off as insecure regardless of how many valid points you made.

  • VillAin

    i jus wish ppl would get off the black and white subject all together. if you dig a certain style of music then jus roll wit it. i get frustrated wit this topic, but white rappers always come off as trying to be somethin their not, they try to immitate other rappers and not just be themselves. i’d have more respect for that than some white dude tryin to sound like eminem or juelz santana, YA DIG!

I mean for real dog, you remind me of those geeks in high school who consistently got their ass whooped and then plotted on how you were going to get revenge on those bastards who wronged you (this might be a good time to mention then that if in fact that’s how you are, I’m just kidding!!! I don’t want some crazy nigga trying to Columbine me….but I digress….) You really just outed yourself with that interview. I’ve read countless posts of yours where you talk about Kanye being homo and all sorts of other teh ghey shit but judging off of how you presented yourself, you look like you sucked your fair share of dicks in your lifetime too! And what the fuck is up with your voice?! Haven’t you hit puberty yet? No wonder why you make your living by writing cause in reality who’s going to take you seriously the moment you open your mouth and speak?! Now I’ll admit, I enjoy a good majority of your posts. I actually find you quite entertaining at times (however now that I know you’re straight up homo I may need to re-evaluate some things). But the jig (literally) is up. Just accept the fact that you’re no better than all those other fake ass internet thugs out there. You’re just as homo (shout out to Weezy F. Baby!!) or teh ghey or whatever the fuck term it is you’ll come up with next as all these rappers you’re accusing. And just a bit of advice, you may want to stick to trashing Kanye and Lupe (I mean I’m sure you probably feel like you could probably kick their asses since they aren’t too hardcore….but if not at least you can offer them a blow job and not worry about the fear of rejection) but you should probably fall back from them other niggas like Bun B and Pimp C. Not for nothing but them niggas is a little scary and no matter how many free blowjobs you offer them it won’t save your ass from getting murked.

  • Ace

    I was reading tom breihan’s review of this book, and I was thinking about his primary supposition about whether white kids have a right to the music if they have been listening to it their whole lives. At the risk of sounding racist, I’m going to say that white people have no discernable right to hip-hop as breihan may suggest. White people can have a right to hip-hop when they start producing hip-hop on a substantial level. When I can name more than one white rapper who has made it then white people can have a right to it. When they start talking about their own experiences and their own politics and not mine, as a Black person, then they will have a right to hip-hop. Hip-hop is life, hip-hop is lived. The international scene is different because everyone is involved in it because everyone in those countries are striving together, so there’s no disparity. The white kids need to stop watching and get in if they want to stop being mocked. Every other group in America is involved in hip-hop and making substantial contributions. White people need to stop being on the sidelines and get onto the mainline.

    I think white people get scared off black music at first, and then years later discover it wasn’t that bad. That’s why so many white kids like Golden Age, and so many white rappers emulate Golden Age.

    It’s the same principle as Christian music — they’re always like ten years late on popular music cause they have to make sure it’s safe enough. (Pearl Jam — years pass — Creed)

    That’s why Jay-Z is big with whites now. Vol 1 was probably more pop than Kingdom Come, but it sold less because he was too black. Now he’s been around long enough that white people stopped acting scared.

    Lil Wayne will catch on soon, but white people see him as too black right now.

    that statement is basically the equivalent of me or any other white person saying that the reason there aren’t as many black people in college, or in good job positions, or the CEO’s of Fortune 500’s is cause the black person isn’t as smart as the white person…truth, every race is racist and it will never go away, learn to live with it”

    I am black and I agree with this guy. What do we need to tell to blacks that want to be CEO’s now. I will never say that it is because that dude is white that he’ not nice. That’s some racist shit. The problem with white mc’s compared to blacks is first, white kids don’t want to listen to a rapper that looks and sound like their suburn neighbour. On the other hand, black rappers are far away, their drug stories, shiesty bitches, baby mamas, how the world is crazy, is a story that is far way it’s like drama to them. Plus most of white rappers lack swagger and and cannot invent good slang (no weird al yankovic). The funny thing is most of companies are ran by TI’s, why they are not signing them? Also black kids are aware of of what happened to rock n roll. Go to any Jazz concert and count how many black kids is checking for jazz. Bottom line is black folks should not said that it is because that a dude is white that he’s not a good rapper. A white dude might say, “that’s why black college population is 10%”

    it would be funny as hell to hear a white rapper like for example, john brown or paul wall try to imitate that signature project pat flow like on “ballers” or “north memphis”, or “blunt to my lips”

    this race thing is just stupid blacks arent better that whites, whites arent better than blacks. Rap wouldnt exsist without the white man plain and simple ask russel simmons. Just like dre said every time an album goes platnium you know half the sales have to be outside the black community. Also there arent as many white rappers because they cant be fake. They cant talk about hustlin and life on the streets even though most black artist that talk about that dont live that life either. But nobody wants to listen to somebody rappin about the suburbs. Compare it to like why arent there any black country singers its just not there life style. But if a black man wants to be one no one will take them seriouslly unless there amazing kinf of like eminem with rap. Also there are good white rappers but nobody wants to hear them lil wyte go cop his first 2 albums there dope as hell.

    there aren’t more white people in rap for the simple reason that black people are racist, yes i said it, black people are racist just like white people are and people of every race are racist towards other races…its just how it is, and a black person saying that there aren’t more white people in rap because they aren’t as good at it as black people are are racist cause that statement is basically the equivalent of me or any other white person saying that the reason there aren’t as many black people in college, or in good job positions, or the CEO’s of Fortune 500’s is cause the black person isn’t as smart as the white person…truth, every race is racist and it will never go away, learn to live with it

    black people are not racist we just respond to the stupidity of whites…we are a loving people…in all our history when did we invade another country/race…when did we enslave another race…when did we discriminate another race…white folks are the ones who alienate…we move in to a majority white neighborhood what happens…the whites move out…dont give me that blacks are racist crap…uh there arent many white folks in rap because yall not built for this shit…yall, for the most part dont have enough “swag”…the reason white folks are advancing in the education, financial, and job arena is because yall mutha uckas run the shit…this ties back to the analogy of the whites getting a shovel while the blacks get a spoon…but in the end we get criticized for not winning a race we were set up to lose…

    This is to that idiot Bears suck hey bastard the Term ghetto come from the areas Jews lived in they didn’t invent it for black people.
    Having the highest unemployment rate has nothing to do with a person but Job availability and if you swallow that load of shit that the government is feeding you about job growth you are a bigger idiot than you proved to be when you wrote this post
    Drugs and the Jail population is directly connected to the social engineering or lack there of provided by the states, lets see first blacks are less than human, then they are second class citizens, then they get some rights but the old buddy system is still in full effect so when unemployeement is high crime and criminal activity often rise amoung all races blacks have been on this horrible end of the spectrum forever, if you don’t believe people are programed you are even more of an idiot than I thought, you have been programed with the crazy racist perspective you have because if you were open minded you actual see the big picture
    STD and Aids and generally bad health habits also come from being in a low social economic class go check the trailer park same shit or a mining town same shit different scenario not about race as much as economics in this country
    The crab mentatlity comes from self loathing sponsered by the country who brought them here if you are constantly looked at as low you start to think that ish is true.

    All and all music is a great part of black culture and is it wrong that white people and people of all colors enjoy what is made no. Just respect the architecs and everything is cool. Race is a racist notion in it self there is but one race on this planet and that is human now when you find some lizards men we may have an argument but it is dumb and I know you are to say blacks are better than whites and whites are better than blacks both groups are equally fucked up and imperfect end of discussion bitches

    most of yall are fuckin retarded, white people, overall, listen to rap music for the same reason that people listen to anything and like it, THEY RELATE TO IT IN SOME WAY!, granted there are those groups of people who love to follow the trends and think they are cool and don’t listen to it for the right reasons, but its like this with ALL races and ALL forms of music, believe it or not there are in fact white people out there who listen to rap cause they genuinely like it and relate to it in some way, and everyone saying that black people somehow “own” hip-hop are even more retarded, yeah sure black people might of started hip-hop but you can’t own a musical genre, its impossible and is just an example of people being greedy and their insecurities coming out, its impossible to own an art form, the first person who made a film was probably white, but white people don’t claim to own film cause that would be fuckin stupid, sure black people started rap but anyone has the right to like it or do it, no matter what race they are.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    a white person in america will never be able to fully relate to what a black person goes through…you have no clue…ever heard of the phrase “white privilege”…you white folks benefit from it everyday…because you listen to our music and go to the concerts you think you can relate…this ties to Tara’s post about touring ghettos…do you see blacks trying to do country music or heavy metal(sure there are a few i could count on my hand) but do you see us at white concerts…everyone is trying to do us…there is a reason for that…film did not come from a culture it was an invention…you try to make analogies that are way off base…hip hop stems from our culture and our way of life…

    Afro-Americans have gotta be some of the most ignorant, dumb muthafuckas alive…..rash generalisation? Yup. DJ N-Cred’s assertions that white people like rap cos they wanna be black? most ridiculous shit I ever heard. The US rap game is different to the UK game but one of the most talented and respected rappers in the UK is Skinnyman, liked by black peeps and whites alike, cos he’s dope. I’m black and personally I like rap cos yeah I can relate to it but I’m also an educated brother and I relate to the lyricism in rap, plain and simple. There’s an equal amount of talented UK white rappers as there are black and they share pretty much an even sector of the market. The reason it ain’t the same in the US is cos no doubt whites are scared to put themselves out there cos they’ll get ridiculed not only by blacks but by whites as well. Its cos the stereotypical hip-hop MC is black and it takes some fuckin nuts to step outside the mould see Skinnyman and Eminem. And all this bullshit talk about Bol’s interview, leave it the fuck alone you faggots, who gives a fuck what he looks like, he’s a fuckin writer not a TV personality.

    “The DJ Formerly Known as N-CREDIBLE” your a dumbass and i did read your last post so dont post that kind of bullshit up here. THough your points are valid about early history…society is so far removed from that period that you cannot possibly say that. We have transformed so much sence early civilization that saying something like that is rather ignorant, and completly false. I am white and i love rap music i cant say why but i no black person now a days is able to tell you why either cause hip hop has changed so much that it really doesnt discuss problems within the black community. Hip hop is good because it has rhythem and that does come from black culture im not denying that so there might be soimething better about black music than the original music white people produced, saying the reason behind that is because whites are inferior to blacks is completly false

    Ok, Im from the uk, Im white and in my 30′s, as a kid growing up I was told, “what you doing listening to black music?” by whites as well as blacks, my response, “it aint black music its rap music” listening to X-clan, I was told, “that aint for you.” Public Enemy, “that aint for you.” NWA “that aint for you.” Ive constantly been disrespected by whites and blacks for my love of rap music, yet I feel its my love for this music that has helped turn me into the grown man thats adult enough to not judge someone by the colour of their skin, or their beliefs, or funnily enough, their choice in music. I feel that all this article does is encourage racism and ignorance. As Nas once said. “One Love”

    i got into hip hop at first because it hit hardest on my shitty sub woofer that i had in my first car when i was 15 and before i knew it that was all i was listening to…so i started buying older cd’s to see where it all started at i liked some of the older stuff but none of it really stuck until i bought paid in full when i popped that in and the beats werent so obnoxious i actually got into the lyrics so i bought wu tang’s enter the 36 chambers and it was a rap….i started getting into the more lyric driven hip hop and thats whats keepin me a fan i may have never been through the struggles that they speak on in their raps but you can just recognize that the rappers are speakin on some real shit and they really mean the things they say and i can just feel them….and then you get into the fact that they write everything they say instead of paying someone to write it for them like so many other genres do…so in my opinion its one if not the only one form of music that is still honest and straight from the mind of the artist…..and thats real so i respect it

    what ever you say hiphop will always be a matter of race simpley because of the history white people have with black music(culture).

    If hiphop was still an undergound scene would white people want to get involved it? would they care about hiphop? funny, coz all of a sudden hiphop is mainstream they want to relate to it, really if not so much money was involved in hiphop would white people want to rap(produce)?

DJ N-Cred’s assertions that white people like rap cos they wanna be black? most ridiculous shit I ever heard. The US rap game is different to the UK game but one of the most talented and respected rappers in the UK is Skinnyman, liked by black peeps and whites alike, cos he’s dope. I’m black and personally I like rap cos yeah I can relate to it but I’m also an educated brother and I relate to the lyricism in rap, plain and simple. There’s an equal amount of talented UK white rappers as there are black and they share pretty much an even sector of the market. The reason it ain’t the same in the US is cos no doubt whites are scared to put themselves out there cos they’ll get ridiculed not only by blacks but by whites as well. Its cos the stereotypical hip-hop MC is black and it takes some fuckin nuts to step outside the mould see Skinnyman and Eminem. And all this bullshit talk about Bol’s interview, leave it the fuck alone you faggots, who gives a fuck what he looks like, he’s a fuckin writer not a TV personality.

    This one was my favorite retort.

    I dont even hafta say shit else, just go back and read through your own posts and see how stupid you look. Your “truth”, lmfao.
    Oh, and yeah I have learned shit on here, just not from ignorant racist teenagers like you. Noz, YN, Tara, Sick, all have knowledge to drop, and theres plenty of C-Boys who are intelligent and have fair and intelligent views on the issues at hand, even if you dont agree with EVERYTHING they say. If you could open your mind and your eyes a little bit and stop thinkin everyone’s on your dick maybe you’d realize that.

    Oh, my bad, I forgot you know everything and people cant handle it. Its obvious from your gloriously informative replies.

    Granted a majority of white people listen to rap because it has been so commercialized and they want to feel “cool”. but real Hip hop comes from the streets and the “ghetto” And believe it or not, there are a lot of white kids who grew up in the streets. Without a father, broke as a muthaphuka, wellfare, foodstamps all that shit. That is the reason black people like rap, because they can relate to it. They know what is being said, it talks to them. And since I grew up the same way, why should i listen to altenative or heavy metal or country. That shit has nothing to do with me or what i grew up on. Its not a race thing, its a social class thing. And it dont matter what color you are. POOR IS POOR, and the streets are the streets. 1 hundid……..Fuck all that HIP POP> quit buyin that shit. Support real artist!!!!!!!! UGK, Z-RO, Rap-a-lot records for life…If you a hater and you know it; FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!

  • honkey t

    Dunno…y’all short the music by talking this way. Can’t white peopel like hip hop because it is creative, inventive, unique and rythmic?

    Can’t I love NaS for the way he rewinds?

    Do I need to get a black pride hall pass to groove to Lupe or the Fuggees or OutKast?

    To reduce hiphop to just a “black thing” as many of you are doing, is to blantantly ignore the quality of the product. Its also pretty racist…in the sense that hip hop rules youth culture from Brazil to Nigeria to Japan and back again? You think Palestinians are identifying (or trying to cop) the black man’s pain, culture and style when they rap? Nah. “Its all in the Music…”

    so what your saying is whites and blacks are subject to the same thing???…sure there are some but what %…you see the % is way higher in the black community…i hope you dont think blacks and whites face the same thing day-to-day

    And it dont matter what color you are. POOR IS POOR, and the streets are the streets.

    your telling me the color of peoples skin has nothing to do with it…again whites try to say everything is A-ok…RACISM still exist…and blacks fall victim everyday…

    Hey N-Cred, how do you explain the influx of “Mafioso Rap” in the 90′s? If white people listening to rap = stealing black culture, then every rapper who has made a “mafioso” themed song/cd has stolen my culture, if we’re gonna get all petty with this. Why would they do that if black culture is so superior?

    Actually I said alot homie.

    Youre right N-Cred, not ALL blacks and whites face the same things everyday. The point that alot of people are trying to put across is that there are ALOT of white people that DO. Like it or not, theres people of every race suffering the same shit every day. I dont know about you but theres plenty of different races, black white spanish hatian, all facing the same shit in the hoods round here. So is it that hard to believe that those people that ARE suffering the same injustices and poverty and despair every day DO identify with the music?

    I dont know how else to break it down, man.

    Ill be the first to agree most white people are whack and got there heads up there ass but it aint fair for black people to claim rap to themselves just like it aint fair for white people to claim anything as theres and there are more black rappers that are succsesful because they got better flow and soul

    ___________________________________
    I will end this with this:

    White Like Me is an examination of what it means to be white, particularly, though not solely in the United States, using personal stories as opposed to statistics and heavy academic analysis to look at the issue of racism in this country.
    It’s sort of a memoir really, which explores six major themes: first, the way that whiteness confers a legacy of advantage built up over generations; secondly, the way that being white still today pays dividends, in the justice system, housing, education and elsewhere; third, the idea that whites can choose to resist racism and privilege, but doing so takes practice; fourth, that even progressive whites often inadvertently collaborate with racist structures, and that we have to be mindful of how easy it is to do so, so as to be on guard against perpetuating injustice; fifth, that racial privilege, while benefiting whites in relative terms, actually makes most whites worse off in absolute terms: culturally, materially, and in other ways; and finally, that in struggling for justice alongside people of color, whites can begin to regain a part of our humanity compromised by unjust social systems.
    I’m hoping to communicate that whiteness bestows advantage as well as responsibility for addressing those privileges, both individually and collectively. The purpose is not to feel guilty but to recognize the way in which our(white) racial elevation in this society has really weakened the social support structures and systems of mutuality upon which we all depend…

    Trust me… the mafia thing stems from culture. People’s fascination with mafia films, and the lifestyle is exactly the same as people’s fascination with martial arts movies. They’re both a part of their respective cultures. It wasn’t something that was taken from their daily life. They didn’t see organized crime going on around them. They watched The Godfather, Goodfellas, Casino, and emulated it. You’re saying that the problem with whites being in hip-hop is that they hi-jack it and make it their own… but isn’t that a good thing? Would you feel better if white rappers just emulated their black counterparts, and not bring in their own twist on things?

    This blog is ridiculous, first off Blacks should not be bitching at all about racism. How many times has a black comedian called white people crackers? Numerous times, and thats just Chris Rock. How many times has a white comedian dropped the N-Bomb on black people? Once, and everyone can’t stop talking about it. I admit it was a little outrageous, but blacks have more rights than white people. They have white rights, and then they also have additional black rights. Music does not have color, it has sound. Just because a person is black doesn’t mean that he is better at rap than a white person. If a white person grew up in a community like blacks do, they could rap too. How many black rock musicians do you know? This is the problem with the world, people feel superior just because there is a larger number of their race doing something, maybe we should all just forget being racist, and get back to making the world a better place. Oh, and black on black crime is also an issue, I saw 3 black guys beating a black lady in an alley today, stop being so violent.

    I thought white people liked hip hop because they either enjoyed shaking their butts now and then or could relate on some level to the lyrical content.

    White people come from broken homes and shitty back grounds too.

    ^this may be true, but if you think about it, that’s all their fault. black folk live in these type of conditions cuz most are basically forced to by the govrnement, and then we move up. whites, on the other hand, if they livin in broken-down homes and livin off government cheese and food stamps and what not, it’s more than likely their own fault. am i right or am i correct?

    Youre not speaking the truth, you’re spewing racist stereo-typical bullshit. Your points arent supported, and you’re playin the race card like a motherfucker. Its people like you that set civil rights back 20 years by claiming you’re oppressed and all that bullshit when you have no idea what opression is. Do you hear the JEWS bitching? They were the white man’s bitch and the EGYPTIANS (the people you claim all white people came from) bitch before america ever even existed. How about the JAPANESE that were put in concentration camps during WWII??? How about MY PEOPLE, the American Indians that were slaughtered by the 100′s of THOUSANDS??
    I gave you the benfit of the doubt, that because of you being from NO, I could feel where all your angst was coming from. I guess I was wrong.
    You need to quit fucking feeling sorry for yourself, or give us some examples of how YOU PERSONALY have been opressed. HORRIBLE things have happened to Africans and African Americans, yes, But HORRIBLE things have also happened to alot of other races in america including horrible unspeakable crimes against MY PEOPLE and you dont see me or them playin this bullshit do you?
    Things now are not EVEN CLOSE to the way things used to be, and you just wash all of the hard work of our civil rights leaders away when you claim that nothings changed or that things are remotely the same. Do you hear Oprah bitchin about being opressed? Do you hear the CEOs and kids in college bitchin about all this?
    Grow the fuck up. You’re basicly saying the same thing over and over and its getting old.
    Katrina in most people’s opinions had more to do with poverty than race and even the most powerful civil rights leaders have said the same. Quit abusing white guilt and playing the race card, cause Im not black and Ive had it just as hard as everyone else that lives in MY hood. We struggle together, we get by together, and we’re family, we dont see color, race, any of that shit.
    You wanna know what happened to my ancestors???? Blankets with small pox, taking our gold and furs for trinkets and alcohol and drugs, which is still the scourge of my people, slaughtered in wars where we were armed with bows and axes and they had shotguns and pistols. Do I use that as an excuse to bitch about how hard its been, even though I DO live in the hood and I HAVE suffered? Do I use that as an excuse for not stepping up in my own life and tryin to get out the hood?? Nope.

    bitches like to go to the club or parties and shake they ass, men like to go to the club or parties and get bitches, rap is played in the club, club rap is the most popular rap with white folks…its cuz of the bitches mainly…

    other white folks tend to like “lyrical” rap, metaphors wordplay, that more original “hip hop” sound,, most white rappers try to rap in that style so their actual lyrics are decent sometimes but theres no soul or feeling in the delivery, just big words that rhyme, if you can’t make people “feel” what you sayin its not good music, hence the lack of good white rappers….

  • WestCoastBoss

    by the way EREAL,and anyone else who may be misinformed concerning this matter… bad shit has indeed happened to everyrace up under white rule here in america but you have all recieved repairations and are better off generally speaking in most aspects of life than so called “blacks” who live in “black” communities, don’t act like native americans don’t complain, its just that the white folks damn near killed all of you and you’re still all seperated into your individual tribes because you didn’t get your entire cultural identity stolen so you are easily divided and conquered with no unified voice… content with reservations, casinos and a check every month.. you still can live your original way of life and practice the customs your forefathers did…us “blacks” were purposely stripped of anything we could be proud of culturaly and had to reconstruct ourselves socially while adapting to american civilization…we’ve always been a musical people and through time and different era’s we developed hip hop so to say its not a “black” culture is a statement made by someone who chooses not to acknowledge hip hop anyway making they’re opinion not valid on this matter to begin with…while the “black” race card has been played too often, to speak the way you did is either ignoring simple facts that would destroy your arguement or being ignorant of those facts….

  • who killed him?

    Jack Johnson, the first Black heavyweight boxing champion, patented a wrench (U.S. patent #1,413,121) on April 18, 1922. His patent was not the first for a wrench. Solymon Merrick of Springfield, Massachusetts, patented the first wrench in 1835. Charles Moncky, a Baltimore mechanic, invented the monkey wrench around 1858. Moncky’s wrench was named using a purposeful misspelling of his name. On September 9, 1913, Robert Owen Jr, of Shawnee, Ohio, received a patent for the “Double Acting Wrench” (ratchet wrench), arguably the most important advancement in wrench technology. Daniel C. Stillson, a steamboat firefighter, received a patented on September 13, 1870 for an invention later known as the Stillson pipe wrench.

    Jack Johnson, the inventor, represents little more than an interesting historical footnote. He owes his fame and infamy to his boxing exploits and his violation of social norms. Born John Arthur Johnson (1878) in Galveston, Texas, Johnson fought as a youth in battle royals (public fights between 4-12 Blacks for the amusement of White patrons). As a teenager he worked on boats and on Galveston’s docks. Johnson began boxing in 1897 and quickly became a skilled fighter. On February 3, 1903 Johnson won the Colored Heavyweight Championship of the World title with a 20-round decision over Denver Ed Martin. This title did not satisfy Johnson; he wanted to become champion of the entire world.

    Johnson was an imposing and frightening figure in the ring. His body was chiseled: 6-foot-1 and 200 pounds. He was a skilled counter puncher with devastating punching power. Moreover, he rightly considered himself the world’s best boxer and when he was able to fight White fighters he “punished” them. At the beginning of the 20th century most Americans believed that Whites were physically superior to Blacks and the heavyweight champion of the boxing world was considered the epitome of physical strength. Johnson defeated White fighters, taunting them in front of mostly-White audiences. On July 17, 1907 he knocked out former world champion Bob Fitzsimmons in the 2nd round. Tommy Burns, the White champion, tried to avoid fighting Johnson, but the American public demanded that Burns put Johnson “in his place.” Burns’ reluctance to fight Johnson was eased by a guarantee of a $30,000 paycheck. On December 26, 1908, Johnson and Burns fought in Australia. Johnson severely beat Burns until a police inspector stopped the fight in the fourteenth round.

    Johnson’s victory was a major blow to Jim Crow. A White champion had been defeated by a so-called Negro. The Jim Crow system was, in effect, a racial hierarchy with Whites at the top and Blacks at the bottom; Whites were considered superior to Blacks in all important ways, including but not limited to intelligence, morality, courage, civilized behavior, and physical strength. Johnson’s victory over Burns led many Whites to physically assault innocent Blacks on America’s streets. Johnson lived as if the Jim Crow system did not exist. During the Jim Crow period Blacks were sometimes beaten for “talking back” to Whites; yet, Johnson spoke to Whites as if he were an equal — or a superior. He reveled in his riches and fame. And, at a time when Blacks were imprisoned, even lynched, for flirting with White women, Johnson openly dated White women and married three White women. In 1908 and for at least another decade, Jack Johnson was one of the most hated men in America. He was White America’s worse nightmare: a menacing black “brute,” profligate, arrogant, immoral, a threat to everything white. Thus, began the search for a “Great White Hope,” a White man to defeat the Black menace. James J. Jeffries, a former champion, came out of retirement to fight Johnson, but the fight was a mismatch. Johnson beat him easily on July 4, 1910. Nineteen people were killed in race riots after the fight.

    In 1912 Johnson was arrested for violation of the Mann Act, a law often used to prevent Black men from traveling with White women. During the Jim Crow period sexual relations between Black men and White women violated one of the nation’s most important taboos. Johnson was charged with transporting Lucille Cameron, his White girlfriend, across state lines for “immoral purposes.” Although the two married later that year, he was convicted of violating the Mann Act, a federal offense. The Judge was Kenesaw Mountain Landis who later became famous as a Commissioner of Major League Baseball. While his conviction was being appealed, Johnson fled to Europe to avoid incarceration. Lucille went with him. He remained a champion in exile until he lost on April 5, 1915 to Jess Willard in the 26th round in Havana, Cuba. Johnson claimed in his autobiography that he was promised a pardon if he “threw” the fight. There is a famous photograph of him laying on the mat having been “knocked out” by Willard. Johnson has one arm raised, apparently shielding his eyes from the sun’s rays.

    Johnson lived on the lam in Spain and Mexico until 1920. Tiring of living abroad, often alone in shanties, he returned to the United States and was sent to Leavenworth Federal Prison in Kansas. While in prison, Johnson conceptualized and diagrammed a tool to help tighten loosening fastening devices. This is the wrench that he patented on April 18, 1922.

    Johnson boxed professionally from 1897 to 1928, and boxed in exhibition matches until 1945. During his boxing career, Jack Johnson fought 114 fights, winning 80 matches, 45 by knockouts. He was killed in a car crash while driving to see the Joe Louis-Billy Conn championship fight.

    Open Letter from Assata Shakur
    Assata Shakur

    My name is Assata Shakur, and I am a 20th century escaped slave. Because of government persecution, I was left with no other choice than to flee from the political repression, racism and violence that dominate the US government’s policy towards people of color. I am an ex-political prisoner, and I have been living in exile in Cuba since 1984.

    I have been a political activist most of my life, and although the U.S. government has done everything in its power to criminalize me, I am not a criminal, nor have I ever been one. In the 1960s, I participated in various struggles: the black liberation movement, the student rights movement, and the movement to end the war in Vietnam. I joined the Black Panther Party. By 1969 the Black Panther Party had become the number one organization targeted by the FBI’s COINTELPRO program. Because the Black Panther Party demanded the total liberation of black people, J. Edgar Hoover called it “greatest threat to the internal security of the country” and vowed to destroy it and its leaders and activists.

    In 1978, my case was one of many cases bought before the United Nations Organization in a petition filed by the National Conference of Black Lawyers, the National Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, and the United Church of Christ Commission for Racial Justice, exposing the existence of political prisoners in the United States, their political persecution, and the cruel and inhuman treatment they receive in US prisons. According to the report:

    The FBI and the New York Police Department in particular, charged and accused Assata Shakur of participating in attacks on law enforcement personnel and widely circulated such charges and accusations among police agencies and units. The FBI and the NYPD further charged her as being a leader of the Black Liberation Army which the government and its respective agencies described as an organization engaged in the shooting of police officers. This description of the Black Liberation Army and the accusation of Assata Shakur’s relationship to it was widely circulated by government agents among police agencies and units. As a result of these activities by the government, Ms. Shakur became a hunted person; posters in police precincts and banks described her as being involved in serious criminal activities; she was highlighted on the FBI’s most wanted list; and to police at all levels she became a ‘shoot-to-kill’ target.”

    I was falsely accused in six different “criminal cases” and in all six of these cases I was eventually acquitted or the charges were dismissed. The fact that I was acquitted or that the charges were dismissed, did not mean that I received justice in the courts, that was certainly not the case. It only meant that the “evidence” presented against me was so flimsy and false that my innocence became evident. This political persecution was part and parcel of the government’s policy of eliminating political opponents by charging them with crimes and arresting them with no regard to the factual basis of such charges.

    On May 2, 1973 I, along with Zayd Malik Shakur and Sundiata Acoli were stopped on the New Jersey Turnpike, supposedly for a “faulty tail light.” Sundiata Acoli got out of the car to determine why we were stopped. Zayd and I remained in the car. State trooper Harper then came to the car, opened the door and began to question us. Because we were black, and riding in a car with Vermont license plates, he claimed he became “suspicious.” He then drew his gun, pointed it at us, and told us to put our hands up in the air, in front of us, where he could see them. I complied and in a split second, there was a sound that came from outside the car, there was a sudden movement, and I was shot once with my arms held up in the air, and then once again from the back.

    Zayd Malik Shakur was later killed, trooper Werner Foerster was killed, and even though trooper Harper admitted that he shot and killed Zayd Malik Shakur, under the New Jersey felony murder law, I was charged with killing both Zayd Malik Shakur, who was my closest friend and comrade, and charged in the death of trooper Forester. Never in my life have I felt such grief. Zayd had vowed to protect me, and to help me to get to a safe place, and it was clear that he had lost his life, trying to protect both me and Sundiata. Although he was also unarmed, and the gun that killed trooper Foerster was found under Zayd’s leg, Sundiata Acoli, who was captured later, was also charged with both deaths. Neither Sundiata Acoli nor I ever received a fair trial We were both convicted in the news media way before our trials. No news media was ever permitted to interview us, although the New Jersey police and the FBI fed stories to the press on a daily basis. In 1977, I was convicted by an all- white jury and sentenced to life plus 33 years in prison. In 1979, fearing that I would be murdered in prison, and knowing that I would never receive any justice, I was liberated from prison, aided by committed comrades who understood the depths of the injustices in my case, and who were also extremely fearful for my life.

    The U.S. Senate’s 1976 Church Commission report on intelligence operations inside the USA, revealed that “The FBI has attempted covertly to influence the public’s perception of persons and organizations by disseminating derogatory information to the press, either anonymously or through “friendly” news contacts.” This same policy is evidently still very much in effect today.

    On December 24, 1997, The New Jersey State called a press conference to announce that New Jersey State Police had written a letter to Pope John Paul II asking him to intervene on their behalf and to aid in having me extradited back to New Jersey prisons. The New Jersey State Police refused to make their letter public. Knowing that they had probably totally distort the facts, and attempted to get the Pope to do the devils work in the name of religion, I decided to write the Pope to inform him about the reality of’ “justice” for black people in the State of New Jersey and in the United States. (See attached Letter to the Pope).

    In January of 1998, during the pope’s visit to Cuba, I agreed to do an interview with NBC journalist Ralph Penza around my letter to the Pope, about my experiences in New Jersey court system, and about the changes I saw in the United States and it’s treatment of Black people in the last 25 years. I agreed to do this interview because I saw this secret letter to the Pope as a vicious, vulgar, publicity maneuver on the part of the New Jersey State Police, and as a cynical attempt to manipulate Pope John Paul II. I have lived in Cuba for many years, and was completely out of touch with the sensationalist, dishonest, nature of the establishment media today. It is worse today than it was 30 years ago. After years of being victimized by the “establishment” media it was naive of me to hope that I might finally get the opportunity to tell “my side of the story.” Instead of an interview with me, what took place was a “staged media event” in three parts, full of distortions, inaccuracies and outright lies. NBC purposely misrepresented the facts. Not only did NBC spend thousands of dollars promoting this “exclusive interview series” on NBC, they also spent a great deal of money advertising this “exclusive interview” on black radio stations and also placed notices in local newspapers.
    DISTORTIONS AND LIES IN THE NBC SERIES

    In an NBC interview Gov. Whitman was quoted as saying that “this has nothing to do with race, this had everything to do with crime.” Either Gov. Whitman is completely unfamiliar with the facts in my case, or her sensitivity to racism and to the plight of black people and other people of color in the United States is at a sub-zero level. In 1973 the trial in Middlesex County had to be stopped because of the overwhelming racism expressed in the jury room. The court was finally forced to rule that the entire jury panel had been contaminated by racist comments like “If she’s black, she’s guilty.” In an obvious effort to prevent us from being tried by “a jury of our peers the New Jersey courts ordered that a jury be selected from Morris County, New Jersey where only 2.2 percent of the population was black and 97.5 percent of potential jurors were white. In a study done in Morris County, one of the wealthiest counties in the country, 92 percent of the registered voters said that they were familiar with the case through the news media, and 72 percent believed we were guilty based on pretrial publicity. During the jury selection process in Morris County, white supremacists from the National Social White People’s Party, wearing Swastikas, demonstrated carrying signs reading “SUPPORT WHITE POLICE.” The trial was later moved back to Middlesex County where 70 percent thought I was guilty based on pretrial publicity I was tried by an all-white jury, where the presumption of innocence was not the criteria for jury selection. Potential jurors were merely asked if they could “put their prejudices aside, and “render a fair verdict.” The basic reality in the United States is that being black is a crime and black people are always “suspects” and an accusation is usually a conviction. Most white people still think that being a “black militant” or a “black revolutionary” is tantamount to being guilty of some kind of crime. The current situation in New Jersey’s prisons, underlines the racism that dominates the politics of the state of New Jersey, in particular and in the U.S. as a whole. Although the population of New Jersey is approximately 78 percent white, more than 75 percent of New Jersey’s prison population is made up of blacks and Latinos. 80 percent of the women in Jersey prisons are people of color. That may not seem like racism to Gov. Whitman, but it reeks of of racism to us.

    The NBC story implied that Governor Christie Whitman raised the reward for my capture based on my interview with NBC. The fact of the matter is that she has been campaigning since she was elected into office to double the reward for my capture. In 1994, she appointed Col. Carl Williams who immediately vowed to make my capture a priority. In 1995, Gov. Whitman sought to “match a $25,000 departmental appropriation sponsored by an “unidentified legislator.” I watched a tape of Gov. Whitman’s “testimony” in her interview with NBC. She gave a very dramatic, exaggerated version of what happened, but there is no evidence whatsoever to support her claim that Trooper Foerster had “four bullets in him at least, and then they got up and with his own gun, fired two bullets into his head.” She claimed that she was writing Janet Reno for federal assistance in my capture, based on what she saw in the NBC interview. If this is the kind of “information” that is being passed on to Janet Reno and the Pope, it is clear that the facts have been totally distorted. Whitman also claimed that my return to prison should be a condition for “normalizing relations with Cuba”. How did I get so important that my life can determine the foreign relations between two governments? Anybody who knows anything about New Jersey politics can be certain that her motives are purely political. She, like Torrecelli and several other opportunistic politicians in New Jersey came to power, as part- time lobbyists for the Batistia faction – soliciting votes from right wing Cubans. They want to use my case as a barrier for normalizing relations with Cuba, and as a pretext for maintaining the immoral blockade against the Cuban people.

    In what can only be called deliberate deception and slander NBC aired a photograph of a woman with a gun in her hand implying that the woman in the photograph was me. I was not, in fact, the woman in the photograph. The photograph was taken from a highly publicized case where I was accused of bank robbery. Not only did I voluntarily insist on participating in a lineup, during which witnesses selected another woman, but during the trial, several witnesses, including the manager of the bank, testified that the woman in that photograph was not me. I was acquitted of that bank robbery. NBC aired that photograph on at least 5 different occasions, representing the woman in the photograph as me. How is it possible, that the New Jersey State Police, who claim to have a detective working full time on my case, Governor of New Jersey Christine Whitman, who claimed she reviewed all the “evidence,” or NBC, which has an extensive research department, did not know that the photograph was false? It was a vile, fraudulent attempt to make me look guilty. NBC deliberately misrepresented the truth. Even after many people had called in, and there was massive fax, and e-mail campaign protesting NBC’s mutilation of the facts, Ralph Penza and NBC continued to broadcast that photograph, representing it as me. Not once have the New Jersey State Police, Governor Christine Whitman, or NBC come forth and stated that I was not the woman in the photograph, or that I had been acquitted of that charge.

    Another major lie and distortion was that we had left trooper Werner Foerster on the roadside to die. The truth is that there was a major cover-up as to what happened on May 2, 1973. Trooper Harper, the same man who shot me with my arms raised in the air, testified that he returned to the State Police Headquarters which was less than 200 yards away, “To seek aid.” However, tape recordings and police reports made on May 2, 1973 prove that not only did Trooper Harper give several conflicting statements about what happened on the turnpike, but he never once mentioned the name of Werner Foerster, or the fact that the incident took place right in front of the Trooper Headquarters. In an effort to hide his tracks and cover his guilt he said nothing whatsoever about Foerster to his superiors or to his fellow officers.

    In a clear attempt to discredit me, Col. Carl Williams of the New Jersey State Police was allowed to give blow by blow distortions of my interview. In my interview I stated that on the night of May 2, 1973 I was shot with my arms in the air, then shot again in the back. Williams stated “that is absolutely false. Our records show that she reached in her pocketbook, pulled out a nine millimeter weapon and started firing.” However, the claim that I reached into my pocketbook and pulled out a gun, while inside the car was even contested by trooper Harper. Although on three official reports, and when he testified before the grand jury he stated that he saw me take a gun out of my pocketbook, he finally admitted under cross-examination that he never saw me with my hands in a pocketbook, never saw me with a weapon inside the car, and that he did not see me shoot him.

    The truth is that I was examined by 3 medical specialists:

    (1) A Neurologist who testified that I was immediately paralyzed immediately after the being shot.
    (2) A Surgeon who testified that “It was absolutely anatomically necessary that both arms be in the air for Mrs. Chesimard to receive the wounds.” The same surgeon also testified that the claim by Trooper Harper that I had been crouching in a firing position when I was shot was “totally anatomically impossible.”
    (3) A Pathologist who testified that “There is no conceivable way that it [the bullet] could have traveled over to hit the clavicle if her arm was down.” he said “It was impossible to have that trajectory”

    The prosecutors presented no medical testimony whatsoever to refute the above medical evidence.

    No evidence whatsoever was ever presented that I had a 9-millimeter weapon, in fact New Jersey State Police testified that the 9-millimeter weapon belonged to Zayd Malik Shakur based on a holster fitting the weapon that they was recovered from his body.

    There were no fingerprints, or any other evidence whatsoever that linked me to any guns or ammunition.

    The results of the Neutron Activation test to determine whether or not I had fired a weapon were negative.

    Although Col. Williams refers to us as the “criminal element” neither Zayd, or Sundiata Acoli or I were criminals, we were political activists. I was a college student until the police kicked down my door in an effort to force me to “cooperate” with them and Sundiata Acoli was a computer expert who had worked for NASA, before he joined the Black Panther Party and was targeted by COINTELPRO.

    In an obvious maneuver to provoke sympathy for the police, the NBC series juxtaposed my interview with the weeping widow of Werner Foerster. While I can sympathize with her grief, I believe that her appearance was deliberately included to appeal to people’s emotions, to blur the facts, to make me look like a villain, and to create the kind of lynch mob mentality that has historically been associated with white women portrayed as victims of black people. In essence the supposed interview with me became a forum for the New State Police, Foerster’s widow, and the obviously hostile commentary of Ralph Penza. The two initial programs together lasted 3.5 minutes – me – 59 seconds, the widow 50 seconds, the state police 38 seconds, and Penza – 68 seconds. Not once in the interview was I ever asked about Zayd, Sundiata or their families. As the interview went on, it was painfully evident that Ralph Penza would never see me as a human being. Although I tried to talk about racism and about the victims of government and police repression, it was clear that he was totally uninterested.

    I have stated publicly on various occasions that I was ashamed of participating in my trial in New Jersey trial because it was so racist, but I did testify. Even though I was extremely limited by the judge, as to what I could testfy about, I testified as clearly as I could about what happened that night. After being almost fatally wounded I managed to climb in the back seat of the car to get away from the shooting. Sundiata drove the car five miles down the road carried me into a grassy area because he was afraid that the police would see the car parked on the side of the road and just start shooting into it again. Yes, it was five miles down the highway where I was captured, dragged out of the car, stomped and then left on the ground. Although I drifted in and out of consciousness I remember clearly that both while I was lying on the ground, and while I was in the ambulance, I kept hearing the State troopers ask “is she dead yet?” Because of my condition I have no independent recollection of how long I was on the ground, or how long it was before the ambulance was allowed to leave for the hospital, but in the trial transcript trooper Harper stated that it was while he was being questioned, some time after 2:00 am that a detective told him that I had just been brought into the hospital. I was the only live “suspect” in custody, and prior to that time Harper, had never told anyone that a woman had shot him.

    As I watched Governor Whitman’s interview the one thing that struck me was her “outrage” at my joy about being a grandmother, and my “quite nice life” as she put it here in Cuba. While I love the Cuban people and the solidarity they have shown me, the pain of being torn away from everybody I love has been intense. I have never had the opportunity to see or to hold my grandchild. If Gov. Whitman thinks that my life has been so nice, that 50 years of dealing with racism, poverty, persecution, brutality, prison, underground, exile and blatant lies has been so nice, then I’d be more than happy to let her walk in my shoes for a while so she can get a taste of how it feels. I am a proud black woman, and I’m not about to get on the television and cry for Ralph Penza or any other journalist, but the way I have suffered in my lifetime, and the way my people have suffered, only god can bear witness to.

    Col. Williams of the New Jersey State Police stated “we would do everything we could go get her off the island of Cuba and if that includes kidnaping, we would do it.” I guess the theory is that if they could kidnap millions of Africans from Africa 400 years ago, they should be able to kidnap one African woman today. It is nothing but an attempt to bring about the re-incarnation of the Fugitive Slave Act. All I represent is just another slave that they want to bring back to the plantation. Well, I might be a slave, but I will go to my grave a rebellious slave. I am and I feel like a maroon woman. I will never voluntarily accept the condition of slavery, whether it’s de-facto or ipso-facto, official, or unofficial. In another recent interview, Williams talked about asking the federal government to add to the $50,000 reward for my capture. He also talked about seeking “outside money, or something like that, a benefactor, whatever.” Now who is he looking to “contribute” to that “cause”? The Ku Klux Klan, the Neo Nazi Parties, the white militia organizations? But the plot gets even thicker. He says that the money might lure bounty hunters. “There are individuals out there, I guess they call themselves ‘soldiers of fortune’ who might be interested in doing something, in turning her over to us” Well, in the old days they used to call them slave-catchers, trackers, or patter-rollers, now they are called mercenaries. Neither the governor nor the state police say one word about “justice.” They have no moral authority to do so. The level of their moral and ethical bankruptcy is evident in their eagerness to not only break the law and hire hoodlums, all in the name of “law and order.” But you know what gets to me, what makes me truly indignant? With the schools in Paterson, N.J. falling down, with areas of Newark looking like a disaster area, with the crack epidemic, with the wide-spread poverty and unemployment in New Jersey, these depraved, decadent, would-be slave-masters want federal funds to help put this “nigger wench” back in her place. They call me the “most wanted woman” in Amerika. I find that ironic. I’ve never felt very “wanted” before. When it came to jobs, I was never the “most wanted,” when it came to “economic opportunities I was never the “most wanted, when it came to decent housing.” It seems like the only time Black people are on the “most wanted” list is when they want to put us in prison.

    But at this moment, I am not so concerned about myself. Everybody has to die sometime, and all I want is to go with dignity. I am more concerned about the growing poverty, the growing despair that is rife in Amerika. I am more concerned about our younger generations, who represent our future. I am more concerned that one-third of young black are either in prison or under the jurisdiction of the “criminal in-justice system.” I am more concerned about the rise of the prison-industrial complex that is turning our people into slaves again. I am more concerned about the repression, the police brutality, violence, the rising wave of racism that makes up the political landscape of the U.S. today. Our young people deserve a future, and I consider it the mandate of my ancestors to be part of the struggle to insure that they have one. They have the right to live free from political repression. The U.S. is becoming more and more of a police state and that fact compels us to fight against political repression. I urge you all, every single person who reads this statement, to fight to free all political prisoners. As the concentration camps in the U.S. turn into death camps, I urge you to fight to abolish the death penalty. I make a special, urgent appeal to you to fight to save the life of Mumia Abu-Jamal, the only political prisoner who is currently on death row.

    It has been a long time since I have lived inside the United States. But during my lifetime I have seen every prominent black leader, politician or activist come under attack by the establishment media. When African-Americans appear on news programs they are usually talking about sports, entertainment or they are in handcuffs. When we have a protest they ridicule it, minimized it, or cut the numbers of the people who attended in half. The news is big business and it is owned operated by affluent white men. Unfortunately, they shape the way that many people see the world, and even the way people see themselves. Too often black journalists, and other journalists of color mimic their white counterparts. They often gear their reports to reflect the foreign policies and the domestic policies of the same people who are oppressing their people. In the establishment media, the bombing and of murder of thousands of innocent women and children in Libya or Iraq or Panama is seen as “patriotic,” while those who fight for freedom, no matter where they are, are seen as “radicals,” “extremists,” or “terrorists.”

    Like most poor and oppressed people in the United States, I do not have a voice. Black people, poor people in the U.S. have no real freedom of speech, no real freedom of expression and very little freedom of the press. The black press and the progressive media has historically played an essential role in the struggle for social justice. We need to continue and to expand that tradition. We need to create media outlets that help to educate our people and our children, and not annihilate their minds. I am only one woman. I own no TV stations, or Radio Stations or Newspapers. But I feel that people need to be educated as to what is going on, and to understand the connection between the news media and the instruments of repression in Amerika. All I have is my voice, my spirit and the will to tell the truth. But I sincerely ask, those of you in the Black media, those of you in the progressive media, those of you who believe in truth freedom, To publish this statement and to let people know what is happening. We have no voice, so you must be the voice of the voiceless.

    Free all Political Prisoners,
    I send you Love and Revolutionary Greetings From Cuba, One of the Largest, Most Resistant and Most Courageous Palenques (Maroon Camps) That has ever existed on the Face of this Planet.

    I agree for the most part that “black” seems to be better, but there are alot of terrible black artists, especially in hiphop. But theres ahelluvalot of even worse emo shit that seems to be on the radio these days, and none of its by black artists. You couldn’t say that black musicians are more talented at all tjough, its just they make more interesting music.
