Despite My Peeve About White People Who Know Nothing About Black and Brown People, Talking About Black and Brown People

I am not going to rag on a certain racist adjacent white lady blogger for continuing to talk about Black and/or brown brown people.  But to say this, and repeat myself in sum:  when white (lady bloggers) people talk about black and/or brown people, they prove how little they know about us, and give us increasing reasons to despise them and their disrespect for Black and/or brown people.  For your own good, shut the fuck up about black and brown people.  

Now for the main thing.  I had an idea about how Rush Limbaugh  and Newt Gingrich are two people who are most to blame for the shit show that is the GOP lately.  And in a related vein, the GOP is so unhinged from fact and reason they will celebrate the destruction of our democracy,  But I actually was looking for an image to go with my specific thought that Rush's evil plan is going on as he hoped even if he is dead. And that is how I found out that he was buried with military honors.  I find that to be disgusting but is there anything about the GOP lately that isn't?

The Problem with Critical Race Theory w/ Charisse Burden-Stelly. (It's Not What the Critics Say.)

Spoiler alert.

My favorite part is when Charisse Burden-Stelly dismisses the CRT critics as:

allowed to remain ignorant as fuck.

For the record, she says that after a perfectly reasonable, and intelligent discussion of the issues.

But her salty dismissal is to my mind the sauce on the meat.  Adds flavor!

I could crank about a certain racist adjacent blogger. But I decided against that . . .

But I just saw some good segment on PBS News Hour with rapper/poet Common, and a Chicago pastor talking about systemic racism in Chicago. Over the years and years. And since I looked at a certain racist adjacent blogger's page, earlier today. And I was already cranky about racists and racist adjacent bitches?

This:

If you do not believe there is systemic racism in America. And I mean, not just against all black and brown folk. I mean against all not white folk . . . .


No more pretending there is another side. There are facts and there are lies. And the only part up for debate is which bitches are just ignorant, and which are really, truly racists?

Prove Me Wrong, Black Guys on Blogging Heads

 Racist and or Otherwise Out of Control Cops Killed Twice As Many People as Previously Reported.


And they have been killing black and brown people at a higher rate.

I do not expect the lying liars who have been spewing that previous and now disproven, toxic bullshit to recant.  Well I specifically do not expect Heather MacDonald to recant.   She has made a great part of her career gleefully spreading lies about how "not" racist America is, particularly, institutions, particularly Five-0.  But I don't expect "The Black Guys on Blogging Heads," to, either.  But between the two of them?  McWhorter, maybe?  I hope both prove me wrong.

And no, no.  Fuck no!  I don't give anyone slack because it was medical examiners, allegedly, underreporting.  

Particularly any black people.  You negros should have expected that shit!

Negros please!

Let Us Not Name Names. But This is One of the Hallmarks of an Inferior Mind. My Opinion at Least. Universalizing.


                                                                                                                                                                


First, the ignorant quote, which will remain unattributed:

 "And I think if Americans were perfectly honest, we'd all confess to having a love/hate relationship with the guy."

No!  No!  Motherfucker, no!

Firstly, I am a native of the NYC area, and have lived most of my life in this area . . . . always in the North East, Atlantic Coast region.  And particularly, here in the Tri State Area, there are millions of people who have despised  Bozo for decades.  So no.  The quote is factually wrong.  Now for the rhetorical deconstruction.

It is a particularly bullshit form of argument to not only advance an ipse dixit argument   --   one for which there is no support, save the unsupported assertion itself.  But it is another level of bullshit when the argument is so wide in reach, there is no fucking way it can be true.  And further, no matter how much one could try to verify, one could never possibly collect enough data that could support it, and in trying, one would not only disprove it first, but quickly.  It's a baseless, and specific generalization. 

But here is the last bullshit part.  Or at least the last I will include.  It is universalizing.  It is that insipid form of argument when someone has their own opinion about some shit, and baselessly ascribes that to everyone.

Talk about nasty, sloppy, shitty, bullshit thinking and argument. 

But back to the way I and millions of my fellow Tri State Area neighbors think about Bozo?  There was this brit com  called "Chef."  The title character was played by the brilliant Sir Lenny Henry.  "Chef" had a recurring line, that went like, "I hate you with a passion you never will understand."

One should never underestimate the millions of people who truly hate Bozo, and have for decades.  Never mind, the thousands of people who were directly or indirectly fucked over by him, over the course of his life.  

I don't merely call bullshit on that quote.  I call fluffing!  And I mean, in the urban dictionary sense.

Related to Last Post, More White Republican Racist Bullshit.

 

I hope the next 007 is an Afro Latin Woman. How about Ariana De Bose? She is playing Anita in the upcoming West Side Story?

Oh. She self identifies as queer. She is a triple threat in more ways than on a stage.

What Does a Racist Adjacent White Lady Blogger Get from Watching Chappelle?

 Definitely none of the jokes.  


At least none of those concerning blackness, and black folk. And yet again, I find myself talking about Ann Althouse, who has all the depth of knowledge about black and brown folk as a randomly selected four year old would know about the proper way to calibrate the fuel rods at a breeder nuclear reactor.

And to be blunt about it, not a fucking thing!

At risk of being redundant  (but this is within the topical range of my declared pet peeve,) some, and by that I mean many many lots of white folk, just need to fucking stop even talking about black and brown people.  They put their ignorance on full display to we, the black and brown people. And we will judge them for it.  And harshly, oftentimes.

As a related aside.  Growing up as black or brown people in America means you have to learn 1000 times more about white people, than the average white person learns about black and brown folk   As I just said to someone yesterday.  The major difference in society from 50 years ago regarding the races, is we now live in a country where seeing darker faces in the media all the time, is normal.  Granted.  That did not keep some white racist motherfuckers from bitching and moaning about the black reboot of "The Wonder Years."  So the whole 'darker faces in the media all the time,' thing is far from universally accepted and valued.  Despite the number of black and brown athletes and entertainers, the culture is still mostly white.  The institutions were created for whites.  The government was created for whites.  (Hint.  That is the core idea behind Critical Race Theory.  America was made for white people, and built by black people who were enslaved, and forced to do it.  And that power imbalance is still far from being eliminated.)

But before I started typing this, I had in mind the fetishes.  There is that one fetish that lots of racist and or racist adjacent white people have.  And like I said already, it is the one where despite not knowing fuck all about black or brown people, they wanna talk about black and brown people, and do so.  Sort of like the early grade school child who learns some tiny factoid, and prattles and rambles on the topic, despite knowing essentially nothing about it.  But there is a deeper meaning with the witless white folk talking about black and brown people.  That would be the control part.  At minimum, it is clearly about white people trying to control the conversations about black and brown people.  And here in the Americas, that is clearly a descendant of the whole, they will try to control everything possible about black and brown people, because they are white people.  And they believe white people are better.

And that naturally leads to the other fetish.  That is the one where pretty much at least, sort of knowingly, white people are still trying to control everything possible about black and brown people, because they are white people.  And they believe white people are better.

And that good people, is a nutshell answer to the question, how is any county in the Americas still racist?  That shit is still going on!  Stop fucking denying it!
