White Christian Male

It has become disturbing how the White Christian Male or WCM are being portrayed in the media. WCM are our neighbors. You may even know one. Ever since the horrific events in Las Vegas, I've begun to think how the WCM had become the poster boy for American Radicalism. Let's disregard the fact that 54% of mass shootings in the United States since 1982 have been perpetrated by a WCM. You have to remember and understand that the majority of right wing politicians and civil right violating law enforcement officers in this country are WCM. Some even secretly belong to the KKK. It is beyond me how a segment of the population can be seen with such hatred and disdain.

I never imagined living in a world where an entire group of men of a certain ethnic group and religion could be judged solely on the actions of a few. What's next? A WCM Ban? Thank the Lord Jesus Christ that an intelligent, level headed WCM has taking the reigns of this country to lead it back in time to when The White Man was The Right Man.

This is how I imagine the average WCM, GOP wing nut thinks. This ladies and gentlemen is called satire. Unfortunately this joke has become a reality. The war on decency and racial harmony has begun. Well, at least this generation's chapter of it.

It stated even before Mr Trump took office. During his campaign. He was giving the secret signal to America's closeted racists. Many who's parents and grand parents remember the good old days when racism was a way of life. When we didn't mix or mingle. Of course, with the advent of the 20th century, things began to change. People of color began to be treated equally. They began to vote, get educations and hold positions of power in industry, finance and politics. White America tried to fight back, but were silenced so their Racism became dormant, until the Great White Hope came to save them and say, It's OK to hate a people based on their race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, and sexual orientation, just as long as they are not Straight White Christian Males.

Black lives don't matter. All immigrants are dangerous. All young Black males are thugs. If you say it and hear it enough, you begin to believe. You begin to blame all your problems on them. You think that somehow you have been mistreated. The best part is you know that since you are WCM, you will never be deemed a terrorist, no matter how many people you kill. You will never be charged with a hate crime, no matter how many People of Color you denigrate, harass, maim and murder. Your a WCM and you can do no wrong.

Pish Posh you say? Let's take away the W and the M and leave the C for Christian. How can a God fearing Christian hate their fellow man. I guess the same way that you think that all Muslims are militant and want to blow us up. Based on what? The WCM uses religion as a shroud to justify their behavior and disdain for other human beings. Religion does not create saints. There have been wars waged based on religion. God would never condone violence and hatred for anyone. Religion was create by man to serve man. People of every creed have misrepresented their core beliefs in order to persuade others to think how they think and con them into believing that they are serving God by killing destroying their "enemy"

At the end of the day people will believe what they want. They will blame the world for their problems and unfortunately they will hand down their beliefs to future generations marring any chance they have of living a harmonious society everyone is truly respected and treated equally. In reality, equality is a myth. It's a shiny trinket that the White man invented to con the natives into believe that they were worthy. It's equality on their terms. Don't stir the pot or complain or you will be harshly reminded on who really pulls the strings. The treatment of Colin Kaepernick is the greatest demonstration of the existence of inequality in America. You can be black, you can throw the ball, you can be rich, but you can't call us out. You can't stance for the continued injustice in America.

The Get Down Part II [A Review]

The second part of Netflix's The Get Down came out today. Last year I specifically got Netflix to watch the first part of the series. I was hooked. A show like this is made for a guy like me. Although I was born in 1979, I do remember listening to early Hip Hop and Disco records at home at an early age. I'm also a Hip Hop head, so seeing the graffiti, the breakdancing and Djing was also right up my alley.

For: Granted From: Now On [A Pep Talk]

Never take what you have for granted. No matter how meager, insignificant, or ordinary it may seem. Just remember that there is always someone willing to do what it takes to get what you're taking for granted

[My Hip Hop Story + The Evolution of Hip Hop Review]

I recently watched a documentary on Netflix about the birth of Hip Hop, titled The  Evolution of Hip Hop. From a cinematographic standpoint, I feel it was well produce and directed. They did a good job of covering the basics, they focused on the music more than anything. It included interviews with key figures, although some were completely excluded. It's perfect for a rap history novice, who may have never been exposed to the culture. If I were teaching a Rap History class to grade school children, I would have them watch this film.

What's New? [TWO ZERO ONE SEVEN]

New Year, New Me. Bullshit! Why do people wait until the Earth orbits the sun to decide to stop all the dumb-ass shit they love to do? Lose weight, stop smoking, curse less. You name it, and there is a resolution for it. Why don't people make resolutions for things that actually matter. How about you stop being an asshole or sleeping around. People are so oblivious. Here's an idea, instead of coming up with a lame resolution, ask your friends and family what they think you can improve on. You'd be surprised on how shitty of a person you really are. Jokes aside, how about a resolution that has nothing to do with you.

The Future of Black History Month

"If a race has no history, it has no worthwhile tradition, it becomes a negligible factor in the thought of the world, and it stands in danger of being exterminated. The American Indian left no continuous record. He did not appreciate the value of tradition; and where is he today? The Hebrew keenly appreciated the value of tradition, as is attested by the Bible itself. In spite of worldwide persecution, therefore, he is a great factor in our civilization"
