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. They also seek not to be an apologist for the confused Negro.

There is no logic claiming a home in a foreign land. There are no Africans born in Tennessee that have descended from the people that were once enslaved in the United States of America. John said that Africans are born in Africa therefore Black Americans are born in America. Meanwhile, just what do the real Africans call Blacks in America?

South Georgia Pete went to Africa. However, he was identified as the Negro or Black man from America. But when Pete came back to Georgia he called himself an African American but the Africans knew he would always be a confused Negro.

Greetings Brethren,

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.

There were times as we look back on the time line when the Negras had no rights and really no name. But a clash of swords, black powder and cannon balls regained lost land for the victors. But what of the victims of the land who were the rogues that stole cotton at midnight?

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. Freedom thus came, or some said it was freedom and so did citizenship and the right to vote.

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.

The Proud Black American: Visions To Reality (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow) (16-25 October 2013)

One man who said he was/is an African American who resides in and was born and raised in Tennessee noted that he was rooted and grounded in African culture, customs, traditions etc. He thus changed his name learned to speak an African language and noted to everyone that would listen that he was/is African.

However the clear definitive qualities of culture in this instance note: The civilization of a given race or nation at a given time or over all time. Meanwhile there was no ship or boat large enough to carry or bring all of Africa to Tennessee or any port in New York or anywhere else along the eastern seaboard of the United States of America. He also refused to board any boat or ship even the pleasure boats all along the great Tennessee River and Chickamauga Lake.

Greetings Brethren,

Peace be unto you. I would imagine there was a time even before the trade in human beings took place that those that are Black stood up proud. I also believe that in many of these people regardless of the circumstances they always had some idea of not only who they were but their destiny.

The sands that are often blood-stained and dirt of the times of yesterday renders a historical record we have no control over. But we do have some control over the times of tomorrow. What about today? The Sun will rise today it will surely set on tomorrow. God the Father breaks the day.

What if yesterday had not seen an enslaved people from “The Land of the Blacks,” that some called Africa? Would we still see the distinct Black American personality that brought the world the powerful, call to freedom and liberation in the bottom beat of the Drums? Then came Spirituals, Work Songs that were Blues songs, Blues, Gospel, All that Jazz, Ragtime, Rhythm and Blues, Songs of contemporary Liberation, Rap and Hip Hop.

Would the transplanted African who came to America from Africa and gained citizenship (who became the African American) render the same contributions that Black Americans have given to the world?

Also as the independent mind continues to see through certain eyes “What if the South had won the Civil War?” Would Black Americans be better off today? Would there be more Black businesses? Would any of these Black people adopt the foreign notion of attaching African to their American heritage? Just how long will the people enslaved the Negroes remain in bondage?

ParaFable Cont.

There was nothing but silence as the Africans that refused to return home tried to fix Africa in a name. Meanwhile, the Black middle class and the lumpen proletariat had taken over the Name Game. The Ant Eater called ‘Sam last name Bo’ who also loved to eat members of the roach family joined in with the name changers.

The Colored Ant Eater was born in North Chattanooga. However, he was in constant denial about his home while embracing the land of some of his ancestors. Many thought he was foolish as no one he knew could pronounce his new name. The big Black flies were all over the place and they always wanted to visit Africa, take a hay ride and run and fly through the bush at midnight.

But ‘Money See’ and ‘Money Do’ and all the Baboons they knew and ‘King’ the Gorilla called the home where they slept home. Most were Black all over but nobody knew any color called Africa?

However, we all remember many tigers, lions and panthers that were raised outside of captivity in the new world called America who were set in rebellious ways. They carried a great grudge against the White Snakes.

The Snakes had bitten and poisoned many subjects from Africa and throughout the world. The Monkey Kingdom was no exception. Also the tigers and their clan were often poisoned as it was the custom of the White Snakes.

Meanwhile ‘Monkey See’ and ‘Monkey Do’ had great vision. They realized the essence of pride in the land they had worked, bled and died in all the wars for as Black Americans. However, the tigers, the lions and the panthers cried out in anger identifying with another place far away that knew not their name or the Name African American.

ParaFable Cont.

Most of the customs meanwhile were burned on a coal-oil soaked Black and White Cross. Then Jim who was a Rebel Crow took over. As time moved the American Experience began to really penetrate the hearts and minds of the Monkeys that were Black.

Nothing hung from the trees before and after “The Vale Of Tears” but possums and Strange Fruit. “The Name Game” presented a litany of colors and nick-names? Negra, Negress, Colored, Negro, Afro-American and Black. And some Monkeys went back to Africa while they still lived somewhere in California as African Americans.

“Monkey See” and” Monkey Do” transcended all time lines as they were in the first generation and destined to be in the last. Meanwhile the low crawling White Snakes ceased with the Name Game. Black Americans declared themselves Black. However, the Africans who refused to return to Africa said they had no country.

Bu no one went back home. Most that cried out in confusion as to homeland were kin to the Snakes that started all this commotion. ‘Monkey Do’ knew he had to try to bring an honest report.

Therefore, he noted that there is very little logic in someone in American claiming Africa because they believe they have no country but continue to live in America where they were born. ‘Monkey See’ who had good eyes also said… “If you were born in America just because you have ancestors from Africa does not make Africa your home.”

A big Black Gorilla who with pride carried the name of ‘King’ then said… “Those that have identified a particular home land although born in West Tennessee should return to that place.” Then a loud Hyena named ‘Helen’ said … “Are you crazy. Where will they go in Africa? Usually when one has a home it is not an entire country.”

‘Baby Face’ the latest Baboon on the block said… “You got that right. I live at 762 Vine Street in South West Atlanta, Georgia. But I have never been able to get a valid address for the Colored Monkeys that say Africa is their home.”

‘Monkey See’ then said… “Well how can you go home when you don’t know where your house or home is located.”

Then a wild Yellow and White Snake that most of the human subjects called ‘Dirt’ said… “I claim all of Africa.”

‘Monkey Do’ could not hold his peace… “Well beloved (speaking to the Yellow and White Snake) what part of Africa claims you? How often do you call home or when do you hear from your brethren all over Africa?”

The ParaFable Of Black Monkeys Kidnapped By White Snakes (10-19 October 2013)

There are many sad and ungrateful days for those that have forsaken the way home. Some meanwhile knocked as beggars at the door post of a foreign people that did not hear or see them in a masquerade regarding far-fetched customs they read or heard about.

Thus many of our lost brethren wander through time not realizing that no one can undo or change the historical record. If you are Black you cannot change or buy into a White ethnicity. But can you shop in another country?

Also no one can change their ethnic origins even with black to white chemicals produced by the devil. Culture comes upon one in the place of their birth and not from an unknown source.

There was once upon a time that all the Beautiful Black Monkeys lived in “The Land of the Blacks.” This was “The Land of Burnt Faces.” In later years this land of the world’s greatest resources became known as Africa.

The abject and contemptible Snakes carried the brethren of “Monkey See” and “Monkey Do” to a new land called America. No one wanted to go. Some were kidnapped and some tricked and sold and stolen into captivity by their own brethren because the Snakes wanted free labor.

The Eagle flew; the Crow emancipated and liberated dung upon low lying cotton fields and the Monkeys would sing and dance but mostly they picked cotton by the light of the day and night. No Colored or Black Monkeys really shared any of the crops and the tenants that farmed never had a home.

The human subjects watched as they were the slow creatures. If they had a brain none among them still could think. Most had gone mad due to the abuse and over- use of electronic devices. There were therefore rehabilitation centers on almost every corner. The human subjects gathered at these places for help. The disease was called Text-Mania.

Meanwhile the first generation transplanted souls kept some of their culture. However, the language of their people disappeared so did most customs, traditions, and religions. The assimilation and fusion of the distinct Black but Beautiful Monkey American Experience began to take place.

PARABLE CONFUSED NEGRO CONT.

Fetch-it and Catch-it were both born on a plantation. Fetch-it ran all through the Big House catching flies and anything Mr. (Massa) Gil-Moe wanted.

Catch-it ran all over the fields not as a field slave but as a runner with vicious dogs whenever Kunta and his kind tried to run even before they could walk.

This was a time when the first generation Blacks knew their names but soon with the new births everybody, all the wretched Black souls were given a name.

Negra and that other name was the order of the day. The female was the Negress and there was gal and boy.

With freedom the no name people were now glad to be called Colored but the N name was the most used.

Appeasement and a gift came from the Name Changers and Negro became sophisticated and proper. Some were even proud to be called Negro because then Black meant get back.

But soon the N word people got into the Name Game. Afro-American became popular for some while the bourgeoisie still existed now and then as the Negro.

By 1960 and Black Awareness James Brown and the N word people left Negro, Colored and Afro-American and became Black. Many had always been proud, so True.

But as sure as Black Reconstruction came to a close so did Black as a foreigner came into the Black community. The African American slipped in. Who helped him get in?

Some said he came because a Black man in Tennessee had no home or land or country to identify with. Therefore in malice at racism and injustice he cried out to Africa to anger an opponent who only laughed.

However, all Blacks did not accept such a foolish notion of an African born in Mississippi. But we soon found some that attempted to be African in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, New York and especially in California.

Soon many confused Negroes changed their enslaved names to a foreign Arabic or African name that most people in Black and White America and in Africa and the Middle East had problems pronouncing or understanding.

Many also began to wear what they thought were African clothing. Some chewed on sticks and thought this was African. The Cultural Nationalists meanwhile believed that they could steal or kidnap Africa while still living somewhere in California.

However, none of the African cultural converts went back to Africa or returned. Most never visited any country in Africa because most could ill afford the airfare or gas money to go across their own town.

Meanwhile Blacks in America still pleaded for equal rights as Americans because you have to be an African to seek equality in Africa but most military regimes in Africa only laugh and stomp soft heads while the real Africans, bleed Red, Black and Green blood and cry.

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 rights.

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 African Americans.

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.

Greetings Brethren,

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?

Greetings Brethren,

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.

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 1838.

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 and race.
