The Parable of The Confused Negro
(4 October 2013-12 October 2013)
There was a time when “Truth” and “Freedom” talked and debated all night long with “Black Willie” who called himself West Africa. But let the record note that he was born on the West side of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Willie was never called “Pretty Willie” or “Way-Out Willie” or “Fast Willie” just “Black Willie.” He also always had a problem with being called Black because his skin was very, very dark. Some folk Black like Willie “Truth” recalled were often called “Dirty Red.”
Any way “Black Willie” left the meeting house and said that Africa was his home and went to the bus station.
Black Americans Are Proud To Be Black
John remembered the time line of the infamous
“Name Game.” There was once a time when
Black folk fell down in Negra and Negro con-
fusion and frowned on being called Black.
Black as a way to help foster the crimes of
enslavement and economic racism was depicted
as negative and sad and to some bad. However,
there would be no flowers without the rain.
We also know that the rain often comes down
from a dark and cloudy sky. But the Son still
shines and all days as we liveth are bright and beautiful
regardless of the color of our skin.
John also had read extensively about the
time of many changes in the name of the enslaved
transplanted people from “The Land of the Blacks.”
Were all of these names nick names or were they real names?
Meanwhile some came confused and argued that the
African identity of Black Americans was necessary because
Blacks had no country. Where were Black Americans born?
John was also not just a dreamer.
He was a man that stayed in the Spirit of righteousness.
Therefore, he realized that there was a time when Blacks became
vocal. In loud voices and action they spoke up for equal
However, many believed that the United States was a place
that would never grant the rights of citizenship to Black
Americans. Therefore, the so-called African American was
created as an affront to a racist White America.
Meanwhile the Dark days of long ago when Colored,
Negroes and Blacks made claims for freedom, justice and
equality have passed on. So have significant attempts of
Black supremacy, separatism and malice.
But the willful attempts to still spite White people
or White America still lingers in the African American. Thus
no matter what report is rendered by the lost or the Black
and White side we cannot deny our African ancestry.
But our homeland the land of our birth is the United
States not Africa. Blacks born in America are Black furthermore
Africans do not identify Blacks from America as
The most important issue is that Blacks in America are
a distinct race. They are also Americans. But freedom,
justice and equality will never be achieved if we are
mis-directed as to our true ethnic identity.
If Blacks in America attempt the impossible and try
to be African in name and culture we will continue to be
confused. Why do some cry out for equal rights in
America and maintain a false, foolish and fictional,
Loyalty to Africa? How many Blacks in America know where
their African ancestors came from? If so that still does not make
a Black man born in Tennessee African.

The Black American: The Confusion Of The Negro
(27 September 2013, 6 October 2013)
Once more than once there was a time when a man child who lived in the household, the house of his blood father became blind to reality.
In jest, malice and at times hate he chose to identify with a man in another household as his father because he had rude dealings with his real father.
However, he knew not the person or the man only his name.
But this man did no feed him or provide anything for him as he received all of these things at his real home.
Also the foreign, fake or fool’s father knew not his lost son’s name. Nor did he care.
Peace be unto you. I wonder what Carter G. Woodson would think regarding the foolish notion that Black people born in the United States are African Americans. Meanwhile all the mulattoes and quadroons claim they are French Americans, Irish Americans, English Americans, and Spanish Americans. Some cried out they were Native Americans, Creek, Seminole and Cherokees.
But the main thing is they are all considered Black. At one time these Black souls felt alienated from America. Therefore, someone came along and suggested or established that all Black Americans should identify with Africa and therefore become African Americans. Some of these confused lost souls thought they had no home land.
One would therefore conclude that if this is true we are foreigners living in a strange land. If so Africa must be our home. But there are no so-called African Americans talking about returning to Africa the home of some of our ancestors.
Even the dogmatic Cultural Nationalists that have pimped this African American confusion just like the Euro-centric pseudo intellectuals are not preaching a back to Africa movement. So how can you claim a land that does not claim you? What have any so-called African Americans contributed to Africa?

The Black American Dream
(20 September 2013, 29 September 2013)
Black American independent thinkers dream to reality. They also declare a loyalty to the land of their birth.
There is no logic claiming a home in a foreign land.
Peace be unto you. As God broke the day the clouds did not disappear but the Sun would still shine as my heart embraced the Spirit and I dreamed unto reality.
Meanwhile the Name Game took hold once more than once as Colored and Negro merged and so did the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments to the United States Constitution.
Emancipation also brought on a troubled and turbulent reconstruction period and soon a great lash backwards by 1877.
The former people enslaved became a new horse or mule that still worked and toiled like their ancestors in old cotton fields. They never shared the crop and there was always a displaced and rejected tenant on someone else’s farm or plantation.
Black Leadership: Weak, Strong, Compromised
At night and during the rise of the Sun at mid-
day John dreamed as he saw the independent posture
of the man Frederick Douglass. He fled from slavery in
Douglass was a Black Abolitionist as Africa knew
not his name or his claim to fame. He spoke up until
the time of Booker T. Washington but he stood tall
while Washington fell down.
Meanwhile Booker T. joined in the leadership ranks with
Douglass but had confused notions as the right way the
former enslaved brethren should go. He was attracted
to a compromised and sycophant view of his blackness.
Booker T. threw up and down his soiled and calloused hands
at the Atlanta Exposition as he embraced Grady as the architect
of the south. But soon by the time the century turned and 1900
W.E. B. DuBois emerged and soon would Marcus Garvey.
The liberal elements that took hold of Civil Rights Organizations
had no desire for the economic well being of the Blacks. Thus
these organizations became disturbed by liberalism that felt
they had the right way for all causes Black or Negro.
More than a century ago 100 years in the making conservative and liberal
agendas seemed to have well defined boundaries. Most saw liberals
with a feeling of justice for the downtrodden and those experiencing
the Black Holocaust or an on-going economic depression.
I remember Frederick Douglass in 1852 saying loud that the 4th of July
was a holiday for White America. But now the dream that has become
a reality is upon us in 2013.
The Black man, woman, boys and little girls are as much American
as apple pie. Their ancestors have paid the price as they baked many
pies in the big house called mansions and small houses on farms
owned by someone else.
The dream is now a living reality.
So is the distinct Black American personality

The Parable Of The Church Folk Who Listened To Man and Not God
(7 September 2013- 15 September 2013)
The only way to the Father and eternal life is through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. However, some rely on man and read nothing of the Bible. The Bible clearly teaches that the Mosaic Law of Old made a transition to the heart (Jews and Gentiles) in the New.
God wants your heart not your pocketbook. But man plays the lottery.
All along the way of garbage covered streets
and dirty pews were church folk. They were
alleged believers but they embraced man in the
Most attended church each Sunday and also
fell for and died in the tithing lie. No one
could convince them that they denied Christ
not even God the Father.
Brainwashed, tricked and bamboozled they
found great pleasure in embracing and proclaiming
a particular preacher as their father. They fell down
never to get up in praise of their idol and winked
at the real Father.
There is no second or third place for God and Christ.
The righteous saints had no doubt that He is always
first and so is Christ.
The Devil as Satan rode on a finite and materialistic
horse. His manure his dung equaled money as the world became
saturated with the lust and love of money. The preacher,
the church folk, the church goer, or those that play
Church brought this evil notion into God’s house.
Was this church still God’s house? Was this place
blemished more than a tainted sheep right before
the sacrifice? Who could sacrifice daily at the altar
and atone for sins?
Those that will never let go of the tithing lie will
also forever forsake Christ. God and Christ teach
a way out of the world. But to the lost the world
and filthy money is paradise.
Meanwhile the false teachers came with Bibles as no
one among the church folk were on one accord. Truth
was no priority among these pagan souls? The temporary
father was for a little while but the Father and Son are forever.

“GO BLUE RAIDERS”
TRANSITIONS IN PARTY POLITICS
Peace be unto you. Once there were real Democrats and Republicans. However no one now is the same. Meanwhile celebrity politicians take center stage. You first become a star and then you write a book. Chairs are thus won by many thespians as the media has a fit and the smoke-filled rooms on both sides of the aisle cry out Stop!
Abraham Lincoln Frowned But God Never Left
Soon after the days that the chattel chains broke
the people originally from “The Land of the Blacks,”
flocked to embrace Lincoln’s politics as he was the
god of the oppressed.
Freedom rang many bells and the freedom bell
did ring for some although it is a life-long process
as freedom is seen by some as oppression and
some as equal rights human.
Meanwhile a mere political philosophy did not
ensure neither freedom nor the right to vote but only
for a little while as freedom came to the battle
field as the right to citizenship was won and,
Not given. However many that knew God saw
it as a God given right. But for the most part with
this legacy of attempted freedom or human rights,
as a human subject being waged the new citizens stayed,
Within the ranks of the GOP. But as the new
century moved in and the surge of Civil Rights
Organizations came to fruition also an economic
down turn hit all and both sides suffered.
However, the poorest of the poor suffered most.
The depression that had historically been upon them
was now counted as a Depression for all people.
A man on the other side of the aisle came to the rescue.
FDR spelled out a program that would benefit all
that hungered for a place to eat, sleep and clothes to
wear and a school house. The inexperienced, unseasoned
citizens still looking for hope bolted from the ranks.
The balance was now one-sided as it had been
previously however these days and days since
there has been some mood to bring back the legacy
of Lincoln however, in very strange ways.
Many celebrity chairs now compete some Black
and some White. But will theatrics bring freedom
and justice? What would Lincoln think? But what
is God thinking as he perceived it before it happened.

PARABLE: THE PLACE FOR MAN
(12 Nov. 2005 by Carl A. Patton, Stewart Creek, LaVergne, TN)
“WHAT ARE THE LABEL’S AND TITLES OF LIFE?”
I could see John he looked disgusted but there was a smile on his heart. As he grew he knew that there were no liberal or conservative Christians; the people that follow Christ.
He was grateful he knew that among these people reside no political titles are political parties. So up went the Democrats and the Republicans. Where are the Independents, do they exist?
“Out upon the land stood the law. As John opened the Book he found no reference to the many titles of the world. However, he did see that the law of the Book was uncompromising. He prayed for courage as there was/is only one title and He is King.”

The Parable Of The Weapon of Mass Destruction (7 January 2013)
I fell and was called to a conversation with John.
The children cried, screamed and hollered. The old
folk wept and the demon possessed trigger man laughed
as he had no tears.
One man found a time of insanity when he lost his job.
He did not have to go to a pawn shop or gun store. He
went home fetched his arsenal and tried to eliminate
everyone at his former workplace that winked at him.
Guns are called weapons in the military but they must
have some help to kill. A hammer strikes a nail but
does the hammer build the house. I saw many unused
tools rusting in decay in a tool box.
The guns the rifles the man O' war assault rifles rested
not used and in need of a good cleaning in a gun rack.
That shot-gun has never fired any buck shot by its
own power. What power?
That trigger finger never really controls the weapon.
A society sick in many ways especially Spiritual decay
has a certain attitude. The young and old have a
particular mind-set and heart failure.
Man, meanwhile lower than lower animals, kills for
fun. The hunter rich and wealthy, cherished his trophy
which was the head of big game. Mercy in the Lions
Den. They roamed in Large Land Rovers all through
the jungles of Africa.
The rape of “The Land of the Blacks” even included the
elephant, the great cheetah and tiger land as some roam and
wander all through the African Savanna, for ages at peace,
until gun powder came.
But some stayed at home to stalk the deer whose antlers
adorn many mantel-pieces. The corpses of innocent
babes rotted in the fields, the jungle and the all
along the mountain side.
The Plains Indians still cry as the great Bison the
Buffalo would no longer roam as dead animals
rotted in the sun, scalped of their hide the skin
and fur that kept the Comanche warm during
the great winter’s of the open Plains.
We see thus many killers of men, women, children, boys
and little girls practice all day and night on a
gun range outdoors and indoors well into midnight.
The money barons the real gun-runners smiled as
the weapon of mass destruction came not cheap.
Nor did the bullets they let fly. The world thus
bears witness to a great obsession with killing
tools. While some come to hoard guns for protection
and others think that one day there will be a great
Revolt over the economics of racism.
John however had some answers. Banning all things
used unwisely is not really the answer as this will
never come to daylight or midnight. However, seeing
the heart Doctor who rendered His blood once and for all
will fix any problem.
Peace and Sweet Paradise,

EXCERPT: The Fable Of The Gun Toting Snakes (17 January 2 February 2013)
All snakes were not good and all snakes were not snakes.
But the guns had no name. A deer gave a hungry man
one shot. But an advancing enemy platoon offered
many targets that should not have been available.
Throughout the great forest and the jungles of the world the animal kingdom was outraged at the senseless slaughter of helpless birds in their nests. The Albatross was a big flying bird. While resting and breeding in the cold Arctic islands in the north some ruthless drunken human subjects who were sailing on a fishing vessel came ashore. Some of these rebellious human subjects we bear witness were also seen in larcenous possession of several military style weapons used for warfare.
Sun Smooth the leader of the Albatross clan tells the following story:
“We were taking turns sitting over the nests of our young when we heard a great amount of noise in the area of the sea shore. I had just come back from a long ride and glide of more than a thousand miles over many great and wide streams of water with much food for our young. We were nesting along our favorite ridges which were near the sea. Suddenly Silent Wind my mate cried out saying…
“The mean, the bad and from our experiences wicked human subjects have come to rob and kill us.”
“She then said…
“They are coming to take our babies from their nests.”
Sun Smooth continued his discussion and said….“We had wandered to this place from our southern resting place in the Bird Island known as the South Georgia Colony. We were defenseless as the human subjects had a few guns but all of them had some sort of club or knife. They murdered our babies in their nests and tried to kill us but we flew over their heads and tried to swipe them with our wide wing-span.”
King Cobra always the narrator resumed the discussion. King Cobra was also one of the good snakes as most of the snakes had gone rogue and often assisted the human subjects who were obsessed with trying to kill any member of the animal kingdom. We also remember that these snakes since Creation had an initial time of rebellion. They thus were reduced to moving upon their bellies as some sneaked and crawled around looking and searching for mischief.
But suddenly Sun Smooth insisted on making the following comments and concerns regarding the narration of King Cobra about the gun toting snakes. He said….
“King Cobra I hope you tell us about the coalition that the evil snakes made with the rebels among the human subjects. We know also of some human subjects that rose to the leadership ranks trying to help the animal kingdom and the human subjects. We know Sully the friend of the scorpion was one. John the great peace-keeper who continued on a mission of bringing all of the animal kingdom and the human subjects to peaceful co-existence in love was also murdered and killed by a gun.
