An 18-year-old black man shot and killed by a suburban St. Louis police officer was unarmed, police said Sunday during a news conference that occurred while hundreds of angry protesters gathered outside to demand answers. (Aug. 10)

Black people and people of colour everywhere are in deep crisis. Wherever we go we see the indicators of cultural desperation. In some ways near slavery conditions still prevail. In others, there are attempts to reverse the hands of time. In still others, there is a pretence that real cultural advancement is irreversible. Underneath all this there remains a creeping and persistent destruction of African peoples in ways that fortify the notion that there was no clean break from the slavery period. In this article we will concentrate on the continuation of a silent genocide of Black American males. A genocide that connects with a straight line to chattel slavery, Jim Crow and this New Jim Crow. A genocide employing instruments of state and police powers against helpless communities.

This genocide has to be properly located within the wider context of cultural collapse amongst African-Americans in Detroit, the impoverishment of the middle classes, a normalized militarism at home and abroad, widespread perceptions of hopelessness by large swaths of the American population, the growing militancy of poor Whites as manifested by the rise in the numbers of Neo-Nazi groups, the privatization of the commons, a growing consolidation of capital; galloping and unrepayable household, corporate and national debt. Externally, the challenge to America’s dominance is growing; the world has fallen out of love with an Americanism made popular by movies and the over-abundance of consumer goods. This is the same America that has been killing young, Black, unarmed men in its streets as if there were to always be lynchings. And Black people seemingly have no permanent and legal redress. The police are seldom held accountable, unable to police itself. While the District Attorneys have continuingly shown a distaste for the prosecution of police officers to the fullest extent of what passes for law. By all other measures people of colour are targeted most. Whether it be Stop and Frisk or Driving While Black, police officers in the USA generally see people of colour as criminals, period! An easily available source for meeting daily targets.

The Caribbean GIMME Nations

Blacks told to ‘pull up the ass dragging pants’

The majority of the Caribbean countries, that had slave populations, have and are still wallowing around in the financial abyss. One has to ask WHY. Well one suggestion that is hard to dispute is that all of these nations have a large population of people descended from African Slaves. These descended slave populations, during the majority of their history have been looked after by Caucasian people and they have developed a GIMME/Support Me attitude. Work ethics and the ability to support oneself is not in-bred, just the opposite is true. The majority of these slave populations now blame everything on their slave history, it’s all whiteys fault. They may have a point, however it’s been 150 years, six(6) generations since the end of slavery and they still blaming the same devil. It’s about time these black descendants of Africa take an inward look at themselves, pull up the ass dragging pants and start putting the blame on themselves.

THE HALO EFFECT: How Subliminal Images, Vicious Stereotyping, and Black Misogyny Used by Avowed Racists to Propagate Racial and Economic Supremacy

Russian image which sparked controversy.

When the Black author Sophia Stewart, the real creator of the most successful SCIFI movie franchise in history (‘The Matrix,’) won her a Billion Dollar copyright case against the Wachowski Brothers, Joel Silver and Warner Brothers – there have been outside citations and implications as to racial injustice because (Ms Stewart is African American).

In setting the record straight, on June 13th 2004, Sophia Stewart’s press release read: ‘The Matrix & Terminator movie franchises have made world history and have ultimately changed the way people view movies and how Hollywood does business, yet the real truth about the creator and creation of these films continue to elude the masses because the hidden secret of the matter is that these films were created and written by a BLACK WOMAN* – a Black woman named Sophia Stewart. But Hollywood does not want you to know this fact simply because it would change history. Also it would encourage our Black children to realize a dream and that is…nothing is impossible for them to achieve!’

In the above pictorial graphic, dated, cited and used on January 20th 2014 – (Martin Luther King Day), by Russian Garage Magazine Editor-In-Chief Dasha Zhukova, as she sits on a hog-tied ‘Black Woman’ in the form of a chair, in a shocking editorial that has outraged many in social media and around the world. The chair pictured in the Buro 24/7 website interview is an artwork created by Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard, one of a series that reinterprets art historical works from pop culture artist Allen Jones as a commentary on gender and racial politics. For many who commented on the picture – one question kept coming to the fore: “why would a white woman want to sit on a hogtied Black woman as an artistic depiction given women’s long history of oppression and misogyny? Some felt that the image was destined to incite reactions but also to reinforce certain basic stereotypes which are entrenched within the debate on “race”, i.e. racial supremacy.

The Path to REPARATIONS

Submitted by Ras Jahaziel

At this epoch of Mankind’s evo­lu­tion, where democ­racy and respect for human rights are being immor­tal­ized as indis­pen­si­ble virtues which every soci­ety must pos­sess and are uni­ver­sal yard­sticks by which the actions of gov­ern­ments are mea­sured, it is almost incon­ceiv­able that there are still those who con­tinue to reject the idea of repa­ra­tions for descen­dants of African slaves. Recently, a book on the sub­ject by Pro­fes­sor Sir Hilary McD. Beck­les, pro-​vice chan­cel­lor at the UWI Cave Hill cam­pus a lead­ing activist and eco­nomic his­to­rian was pub­lished. Enti­tled Britain Black Debt: Repa­ra­tions for Caribbean Slav­ery and Native Geno­cide, it sets out a com­pelling case for Repa­ra­tions from Britain which can­not be coun­ter­acted by any of the sophisms and spe­cious rea­sons posited by cyn­i­cal detractors.
