Black Lives Matter: The Internal Problems of a Troubled Community


iCan'tBreathe

“I Can’t Breathe”, by Giulia Tassi.

We could’ve lawyered up. I don’t like the idea of my community being “The Riot People”. When Prop H8 passed, the LGBTQ community didn’t riot, the law professionals of their community rallied together and worked hard to influence legislation to win their right to marry. They changed the world! When anything happens to the Jewish community, post-WWII, their opposition is decimated with formidable political power. The Jews learned the hard way what happens to a marginalized group, surrounded by enemies and too few allies in government. They learned their lesson well and made up for it in spades! We Blacks need to do the same, but without destroying the hopes and dreams of shop owners.

The African-American community benefitted greatly from an African – American, or rather, a Kenyan-American POTUS for eight years. I raise this distinction for there is a significant difference between a Black person of Trans-Atlantic Slave ancestry that served in bondage in the antebellum South and a Black person of African history whose ancestors were never enslaved in that particular trade era for they didn’t lose their identities. The latter can draw pride of place from their specific country for their history was never wiped out. You can’t know who you are unless you know where you come from. That disconnect is the root of African-American’s lack of a sense of self worth and disunity. With that said, the difficulty in unifying and pooling our resources contributes to our lack of fixing our internal problems that would allow us to meet the help of outsiders half way out of our poverty en masse. Regardless of such obstacles, I feel this is the time to pull up our socks and solve this issue once and for all.

If this little boy shows an interest in science fiction, cartoons and comics at the age of 12, he will be bullied and guilt tripped into acting white through the age of 15, by the Dozens. 15 years old is when young Black men are changed to scary. Don’t let the Dozens and mean girls coerce you away from your goals! Fight the stigma! Strive toward the scientist, engineer or writer and all of the other wonderful things comic books and other geeky interest inspire you to be!

 

We can demand changes in our community, but attitudes from the Red State tax payers won’t change unless there is a clear trajectory that we will be able to repay their investment and pay for the upkeep of said changes ourselves with the upcoming generation (Gen Z) and maintain a healthy tax base. Everything decays. Obsoletion occurs. How will we not be seen as a money pit by the white and Asian tax payers whose high salaries fund our communities in addition to their own? Right now, the Right sees the redistribution of their wealth to a community they don’t admire as resources taken away from the repair of their roads and amenities. They can see Black leaders, but what of an educated constituency?  Like many problems in society, an oppressive Herd mentality gestates among the cool kids in a group’s formative years that is toxic to the fringe societies of geeks, nerds, art kids and other misfits who later do well in life. The consensus of African-Americans who have advanced in life cite an added guilt trip attributed to the fringe cliques in the 7th -12th grades by the so-called “cool kids”: cultural betrayal. Misery sure loves company. When will Blacks stop calling the geeks and nerds of their communities “White” for doing well in school thus preventing them from succeeding? When will the Dozens stop bullying those who chomp the bit and push ahead so much that these traumatized achievers don’t return to the Black community once they graduate from college and start their bright careers? All geeks and nerds are bullied by their communities, but only Blacks call our dweebs traitors. Geeks and nerds blossom late and get rich in STEM fields. Don’t chase away that tax base!

There are Black led law firms as depicted in CBS’s The Good Fight. I came across one as I researched probate lawyers in 2019. Simmons & Simmons of Greenville, Mississippi can help you and I am sure there are many others. Just think, if there were a community of these firms with pooled money funded by wealthy donors looking for a tax shelter, there would be no need for riots. Justice will be served through the Judicial system as it should, with significant power on the community’s side.

Sesame Solidarity

It’s frightening living in the Black community in times of strife of this nature. It can make reporting to work very uncomfortable because you don’t know if everyone hates you for what your community is destroying. I am very grateful to all of the corporations that have publicly offered their support of Black and Brown communities with PSA’s. Thank you very much. It means a lot.

Despite the very show of corporate and civil support for the Black and Brown communities, there is still darkness in the opposition brooding in the form of our current President of the United States. Donald Trump has emboldened the shadows among his constituents who use social media to organize their hatred. A recent misunderstood decision by Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg gives a platform to Trump’s dangerous rhetoric. The controversial post is left in tact in an effort to show the world what this madman is planning so they can prepare to counteract him, no to condone him. Zuckerman’s tactic is still risky, for although it is advantageous to know your enemy’s strategy, it is also dangerous for there are militias waiting for an excuse to wipe out marginalized communities and will use the presidents’s rhetoric as a greenlight. They can and will do so one fell swoop in merely a night. Blacks only make up 6% of the population. Undereducated and disparate, we don’t stand a chance! My only comfort is that the Hispanic community, which the militias will target next, is much larger, unified, and knows how to fight a revolution and win. They’ll avenge the Black community in their own preservation efforts should their defenses succeed.

 

kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick offered to pay legal fees of arrested rioters. Now imagine a well managed mutual fund for victims of police violence and other civic resources the Black and Brown community needs.

Lawyers and judicial lawmakers can avert bloodshed altogether when a rogue police officer loses control and attacks someone from a powerful community. When your community is poor, you are powerless against police brutality and other systematic trespasses. To rise above the level of tax draining vermin in the Right’s eyes, we must close the achievement gap in the Black community en masse. No community is fully educated and moneyed (although the Jews and Asian-Americans come close) but we should at least vie for a majority per capita. We can better protect our poor this way, for in a capitalist society, economics, order and defense are tantamount. To be a threat to those tenets is be a target for extermination. To reiterate on a moral tactical standpoint, to riot is to show a lack of evolution in our community and causes. No Justice, No Peace was so 50 years ago. Turn 2020’s riot’s poison into medicine to develop a better strategy. Use the publicity of the current movement to organize our positive leaders, find and galvanize a common identity everyone can be proud of, pool resources and lawyer up!

Giving Hera What-for!


I stumbled upon an article on toxic femininity which although is more enlightened than rants of it’s type in previous decades, still raises my hackles.

I take issue with these statements:

“put on make-up that hints at impending orgasm”

“Hotness-amplifying femininity puts on a full display, advertising fertility and urgent sexuality. It invites male attention by, for instance, revealing flesh, or by painting on signals of sexual receptivity”

Ugh, ask any Gay man and he would call women dressed or painted like this a MUSE. Ask me and I would say the same! Ms. Heying, it’s Hera’s like you that make this world and its recent actresses so darn boring to look at. A “Hera” is a woman who hates presence of any woman more beautiful that she is and that’s just wrong. Where are our modern day Sophia Lorens, Audrey Hepburns and Elizabeth Taylors? HIDING, because of patriarchal feminine types like you! Save a precious few like Liv Tyler and Claire Florlani, (who we see precious little of) contemporary actresses are rather plain. Some women are ruled by Aphrodite and they would rather not have to be ogled by rheumy-eyed toadies! While I am happy that you at least allow these beauties to exist, they should also have a say in whether or not they want to be ogled by unwanted men.
If a dowdy woman knows not to yen for a gorgeous male model walking down the street in Armani, then mugwump men should follow the same rules! Don’t gaze longingly at the gorgeousness unless you fit the ideal and when you do, be respectful about it. A girl wants to hear of her beauty efforts in the context of aesthetics, not some drooling, blearily-eyed beast bent on possession of her. It’s time men as a whole adopted these rules of etiquette. Woman have had to hide their beauty long enough!

Retail Tale


Retail Tale

Black Friday. The day of glee for all retail bookkeepers but a day of hell for all retail workers. This year’s Black Friday was no different. The poor go-to sales dude for sanitation where I work had to clean a bathroom emergency. He didn’t know what he was in for, the manager just said, there was an incident. The poor guy, armed with disinfectant went into the men’s room expecting disaster, but not what the calamity he DID find.

Some asshole shat on the wall. No just projectile shitting, but smeared his feces, and the amount was considerable. Mr. Go-To was a good sport and attacked the “installation” best he could and went about his day pumping hand sanitizer on his palm to clear the ick from his person and hopefully his memory. Then there was a second incident, this time, in the women’s restroom. This time it was an unflushed commode full of shit. FILLED WITH INDIGESTION SHIT. Apparently, the stall ran out of toilet paper, so the copious pooper used the paper towels which clogged the commode. Indigestion on top of toilet clogging with only mild sanitation methods to resolve it. What a horribly dirty job! On top of that, poor Go-To guy really had no sanitized place to really disinfect himself. Public restrooms sinks are have luke warm water and filthy fixtures and the staff break room is a kitchen. That’s like breaking the house rule of using the kitchen sink to wash your hands after using the bathroom—on an epic scale! What goes into the body, kitchen, what goes out of the body bathroom. Not be inverted-EVER. Unfortunately, retail doesn’t have that luxury.

I tell this story to warn everyone to use retail bathrooms lightly. If you feel sick-STAY THE PHUCK HOME! If you have kids (usually little boys) who wait until the very last minute to use the bathroom, therefore they can’t hold their piss—leave ‘em at home! Send them to play day-after-Thanksgiving soccer-anything-but don’t torture retail workers! We’re not paid enough to slop up your shit. We’re in enough danger of infection handling money! Retailers only hire cleaning crews to clean bathrooms once a month. The rest is up to the sales staff who handle your merchandise and exchange money with you. Hygiene, good or bad, effects us all.

I had to educate poor Go-To sales guy of the existence of norovirus, which I hope he won’t contract. One thing is for sure, I’ll never sit in the break room again and will only show up for work 5 minutes before the clock in from now on. Heck, I may make a habit of finding something in the house to bleach upon returning home from work. Stay healthy everyone and watch what you eat before you venture out for an entire day!

The Curator’s Quest


Twenty-six years ago, I worked in an artist supply store in San Francisco. I was young and fairly pretty, but more so, I was very proud that I was going to college instead of becoming a statistic. One day a customer who happened to be a museum curator called in for a stock check. After I confirmed the item and told him my name for reference, he was elated that my name was “Ashanti”. “Such beautiful people!”, he cried. “Such wonderful this and that”. I chidingly said that I had hippie parents (who are known for giving extraordinary names to their children) and hung up the phone.
When he came in and collected his item, he was excited. He wanted to know if my immediate family or ancestors came from Ghana. I said, “I don’t know.” Crestfallen, he told me that American slavery was the cruelest because it was the first to eradicate the identities of it’s captives. Other institutions have tried, but those conquered people were made slaves on their own land, so they didn’t succeed. It’s more possible to retain one’s culture when they’re still living on their land or have access to it, rather than taken 3000 miles away from the soil of their origins. The curator then became angry and said something to the effect of “You don’t know who you are”.
I laughed it off (for I was always being bullied for being an ‘oreo’) and told him I may see him again sometime. He gave me a stern look and said: “No, you won’t.” The tough love stung. I hated African-American history because it was painful. I was interested in African history, but I didn’t know where to start. But, I had two ersatz segues…
I was dating a beautiful Turkish-Irish-American boy and I was in second year art history at the San Francisco Art Institute. I was so proud to be close to Barish, that he inspired my final project for art history class. As I gathered materials, I discovered a terrific book in print called. “Harem: the World Behind the Veil” by Alev Lytle Croutier. In that tome I discovered Delacroix, Ingres and a great story about Kosem the Sultana. I illustrated the story using the styles of Delacroix, Ingres and my own quasi-Elf Quest-Disney comic style and submitted it for my final assignment. (I got an A!) While I worked on the book, I also learned that a lot of Sub-Saharan African history can be learned from the Ottoman Turks who traded with them. I also had an old issue of Larry Gonick’s Cartoon History of the Universe which was later turned into a series of graphic novels which told EVERYONE’S HISTORY not just Western. My curators quest was well underway…

Professor Timothy Shutt says in his lecture: Wars of that Made the Western World, that “You can’t know who you are unless you know where you come from.” That also translates to me as “No one will respect your people unless their history is in tact.” I think the reason why I prefer African history to African-American history is because, after the victories, we (or should I say they) are still rulers in their own country, not pets in someone else’s. Not living under the hegemony of people who don’t look like you, who’s beauty standards you have to adhere to—or get as close to it as you can with whatever features you inherited from the White man who raped your enslaved ancestor. I know….this is a heavy topic that is the antithesis of my sunshine and lollipops personality…

I think identity is part of the Black Lives Matter movement. The police can’t tell the difference between us, so they shoot us because we look like the criminal they are chasing. We all look the same without a history outside this country to help outsiders working in the police force determine the subtle physical differences between us. A floating history that isn’t integrated into the curriculum in grade school. An intangible history most African-Americans can not fully claim because we lost our identities when colonial practices mixed up the tribes, muting our ability to communicate with one another over the Middle Passage. We lost our language and most of our traditions a generation or two after we were sold after landing.

Therefore, as benignly as possible, whenever there is a opportunity, I share Sub-Saharan African history in conversations. Not to be aggressive or derail topics or anything like that. I just want it to become more common knowledge. Europeans are taught African history, so are people in the Arab States and West Asia, but Americans are not, as the curator ALSO firmly told me. I’ll never forget him.

There was a recent conversation regarding Western Europe’s introduction to coffee via a battle with the Turks and someone in Austria is credited with the coffee drink. I bristle at the Austrian being given sole credit for developing coffee as a drink. Coffee plants only grow on the equator. I learned that in my coffee class as a former Starbucks employee. So yeah, the Arabs and Ottoman Turks became famous for coffee, but they had to train with SOMEONE, a people much farther south of the Mediterranean below the Sahel and on the equator to get the beans. There also accounts that they drank coffee. I’ll have to research that to be sure. Yes, I am sure that coffee was cultivated and possibly enjoyed as a drink by equatorial peoples independently all over the world. My argument is against giving only one culture this honor. I’m not letting this go.

My thanks to all historians, but I wish to specially thank Larry Gonick for telling history in comic book form. It’s MUCH easer to remember images that make you laugh than tomes of text. Thank you very much, Mr. Gonick for making the Curator’s Quest more enjoyable.

If you’re interested, here are the differences between the world’s four regional coffees courtesy of the Starbucks new employee coffee course.

Ethiopian: Bold, bright, tangy, citrus-like.

Arabian: Bold, dark and husky

Sumatran: Bold, darkest and husky

Columbian: light and refreshing

The bolder coffees come from regions where the beans get only one rinse either before or after they are roasted.

The light coffees from the Americas are very thoroughly rinsed, because water isn’t as scarce there. These are the perfect coffees for those, like myself, who don’t want to punched awake in the face in the morning.

Arabian (Yemen) coffees are the base for Verona and French Roast.

Ethiopian coffees are great for dessert pairings. Kinda like coffee/tea  because of it’s tangy properties. Lemon cookie or maple oat nut scone with your tangy coffee? Yum!

A Long Time Coming…


Bill Cosby is no longer a hero. I think many still appreciate all the good he has done, but the Rape of Persephone has done it’s deed against a dark god of the underworld. Being a Hades male ( a man who prefers women much young enough to be daughter) is rougher than usual these days. What’s more, being a Black man with a yen for White women sparks the flame of White Sexual Paranoia.

scientific_racism_irish-1899In the Romantic Era, it was observed that the Sub-Saharan African man was the last race to have yet to procreate his genes beyond his native lands, so great systematic efforts were made to suppress the threat. In America, it was called Jim Crow. The objective was to dissuade Black men from marrying White women, To do so, he must be made less attractive to her by keeping him poor and disenfranchised. These were vigorously enforced tenet, while limiting the Black community’s education ( in certain subjects), less so. Per usual, industries will take mathematicians wherever they can get them! All kidding aside, systematic racism did little else but cover up the “problem” for the two factions were still craving each other from their respected sides.

breckGirlBlack fetish white women for their hair. Skin is secondary, for although there is Colorism in favor of light skinned women in the Black community, long, loose, non-textured hair reigns supreme. The strife this causes among Black has little weight compared to the other side of the spectrum. For although a Black woman may find herself abandoned with her children, she’s not going to gather a posse and lynch him! For the longest time, there has been a dichotomy of phobia and fetishism regarding Black men, especially the rumors of penis size. Therefore, when the two fetishes were more or less free to fulfill there desires the result for many cases was awkward and unlawful.


Sex is in part an act of conquest
and when finally given a chance, there were Black men who conquered all they could! They took on every adventurous non-Black female availble, often marrying them. Why not? Marrying outside of one’s race, especially a White person is upward mobility. Mister no longer has to beat Celie for not being Shug. Now, he can bypass the honey colored Shug and marry the French girls on the post cards he hoards in cookie tins. However, on the White woman’s side, being at the top (or the Center), the only way to go is down. Is her curiosity worth losing her place at the center? Being dragged to margins must’ve ran through the minds of many a White woman after climaxing with her dark partner. The surge of emotion caused by the realization of lost power made many scream rape.

blackLicorice

Cosby’s use of quaaludes to loosen the nerves of his partners should never of have been used. It’s equivalent of taking advantage of a woman who is drunk and there are rules against that. Yes, it’s physically frustrating to be blue-balled by a partner who reneged on her consent, but rules are rules. Passions must be controlled! Furthermore, as a Black man, there will be very little sympathy for mistakes…..especially repeated mistakes. Tip: keep a tab of black licorice next to the condom in your wallet!
Cosby justifiably campaigned against the errant behavior of Black men who perpetuate pickaninnynegrobeastnegative stereotypes. However, Uncle Ruckus performed the worst one of all. He became the monsterous Black man in pursuit of White women in D.W. Lawrences Birth of Nation. How could he do such a thing knowing how important he was to Black community and kids of every race every where? You’re not allowed to have serious flaws as a public figure, but being in such a position of one of power and power corrupts. Did the powerful Bill Cosby feel that the women he sodomized were to powerless to be heard? A fatal mistake: never underestimate the urge for a White man to protect his fair damsels—especially blondes.

Karma bit Bill Cosby in the ass. The #metoo movement is toppling many former heroes off their pedestals. John K., my beloved Charlie Rose and who know who else will suffer, for although #metoo is a good cause, there is a caustic side of it with certain women among its numbers who are clearly out for blood and are enjoying their catharsis no matter how much the fallen has contributed to society.

hadesPersephoneHowever, our current president is immune to this witch hunt. Harkening back to mythology, Hades only committed one crime to Zeus and Poseidon’s many, many affronts. Zeus makes alliences and lives in atmospheric real estate that is the envy of mortal. Poseidon realm of the sea if a source of food and travel. However, because Hades is the god rarely seen and represents the Suscious which is unkonwn to mankind. Hade, the god whose world is so dark and feared that no woman would come down to live with him, thus the need to steal a bride, that he can not ever be forgiven in the imagination of surface dwellers. Black men seen to be ruled by Mars, but when they’re rich, they’re ruled by Hades.

mappleThorpe_NEARobert Mapplethorpe narrated this dichotomy in a controversial exhibit in 1990 which nearly brought down the National Endowment for the Arts. As a conceptual artist he had done his job for it slugged the Christian Right and the South at such a visceral level they called the exhibit pornography. However, those who know how to recognize the allegory of conceptual art recognized its power and either heralded it with with public funds ( for it told a very public and historical social construct story) or feared the change it would bring and called for the NEA’s demise.

Mapplethorpe_Derrick_Cross_zpsc1999365.jpg~originalThe exhibit was a series of photographs depicting very dark, muscular and statuesque Black men in sexual acts with White men ( including Mapplethorpe himself) and voyueristic nudes. The perfect allegory explaining the Blackamoor in Peterouchka and Shakespeare’s Othello. The Forbidden Fruit is no longer forbidden and hasn’t been since 1968. Rejoice it seems to say, jump in! And to flabby, pie bald White husbands in homogenous communities this narrative was a visceral threat, for under the surface, wives are bought and their continued sexual favors in marriage are either duty or enticed by baubles and credit cards. Whereas the Black man, as poor as he is never seems to have dry spells. Dark is masculine and white is feminine in the Western psyche and Jessie Helms and Pat Buchannan didn’t like their wives craving dark meat.

The NEA was forever impaired after Jessie Helms’s crusade. Funding is no longer granted to individuals, leaving artists to incorporate as a brand to finance their projects. We have to be leaders when we don’t want to be. Or worse search for individual endowments, thus exposing themselves to scams and giving their valuable information to marketing firms.

mappleThorpeThe positive thing to come out of Mapplethrope exhibit is that Black man were not scary to the Center anymore. An unknown white actress stuck her neck out and opening admired Michael Jordan in Space Jam buy saying, “He’s so good looking”. That’s quite a reversal from Sixteen Candles principle characters exclaiming “A BLACK GUY-Y” “No, a pink one!” eleven years before. White women and Black men are free to beeline toward each other, producing lovely children and an ever loving society. Thanks in part to Mappelthorpe and not soon enough for Bill Cosby, there is no reason for socially conscious White woman to fear losing power for sleeping with or marry a Black man and Black men are free to procreate their genes.

BEWARE: HR SCAMS!


Hello, Job Seekers.
There is an HR scam going around. Two representatives from Getronics, who claimed to have found me though your service, contacted and offered me employment which turned out to be a phishing scam. They sent me a counterfeit check to pay for office set up expenses ( I was unaware of this) and now my bank account is closed due to fraud. Getronics may still be a legitimate company, but the following representatives are not:
Mary Cook: mcook1159@gmail.com

Mark Hancock: markhancock@camelothome.org

BE WARNED! Although, I followed up to verify the legitimacy of the company, I neglected to verify the domains of the email addresses. Search everything. Although, we all know that is easier said than done.

 

Respectfully,

Ashanti Miller
