Five Minutes to an Argument

There is nothing more contentious than the discussion of religion...by and among black people.

Certainly, white people have and do war over religious discussions...the Protestant Reformation being one of several.


However, at the end of the day, after all of the bickering, what has unequivocally proven to be The STRONGEST Religion?

Again, "religion", according to compensatory logic is defined as: the sum total of everything that a person thinks, plus, everything that he or she says, plus, everything the he or she does.

Black people should immediately STOP ALL arguing and fighting, but especially over "religion."

Why? Because you really don't know much about the religion you claim, and you definitely don't want to waste valuable time and energy that would be better used in countering the strongest and most powerful religion in the world.

Think about it.

Do The Contents of This Blog Confuse You?

If so, I have so far failed in my attempt and objective....and for this, I apologize and will attempt to improve.

However, its not totally my fault and its definitely not yours.

A few years ago, I was exactly where you are....and to a certain degree, I am still there.

Still Learning

The confusion that you might have is not coincidental, nor is it an accident. Nor is it permanent, if you will stop, look, listen, and see.

Only you know your level of confusion or clarity about what is being written in this blog. 

This blog is NOT about simply complaining or even highlighting what should now be the obvious.

It is about what to do and what not to do in any given situation when interacting with people.

Solutions.

Tools.


On the job or classroom, what do you do (and NOT do) when called a n****r? Or treated like one.

What do you do when asked to help fire another non-white person?

What to do about "black-on-black" violence?

How NOT to be the least informed person in the boardroom.

Male/female relationships.

Take whatever you think that you know and understand about how the world functions and improve it by:

The above (UPDATE: link is no longer valid), one hour radio broadcast ( aired: May 25, 2011) is a capsule of almost everything that I have attempted to convey in this blog.

Please download and LISTEN to it...don't just hear it...slow down and really LISTEN (as many times as necessary) to what the elder has been attempting to explain for the past 42 years.

The information is as relevant today as it was in 1969.....actually even more so as the main problem remains unsolved.

/Justice/ is correct.

The Assignment & Well-Kept Subjects

Did you take a warm bath or shower last night?

This morning?

Were you able to wash your face with steady running water?

In a warm bathroom?

Did you use a toothbrush with toothpaste?


Another Perspective

Did you bathe in a stream or river...shared with livestock, other adults, and maybe some children?

Is that river downstream from some toxic industrial plant runoff?

Did you return to the same stream/river to wash your face, take a sip of water, and/or relieve yourself?

Reality Check
<<insert truth >>

Far too many non-white people consider themselves one or all of the following:
lucky
fortunate
thankful
blessed
privileged
chosen

and to some degree, would be correct in their thinking - however -  far too few understand, will admit to, or agree with truth. 

Truth is:

At best, we are well-kept subjects.

Humbly ask yourself, in the mirror if you must,  if there is something intrinsically special about you....something that makes you more "deserving" than a starving child in so-called Africa? India? Haiti? Thailand? Vietnam?

Is your existence in this place, at this time, special because of something you did? Or are you better by happenstance?

Do you take for granted that a majority of the earth's population of black/brown/yellow people do not have access to something as essential as drinking water?

Read it again.

The majority are forced to drink dirty, contaminated water....they and their offspring.

Yet, you're "thankful" that "God" has "blessed" you to have a better "life" than they.
Again, what makes you so special and deserving? Or, conversely what makes "them" less special...less deserving?

<<insert more truth>>
Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

You, me are definitely better kept subjects....at least for the time being, but that is nothing to be proud of or satisfied with.

Our comforts/luxuries/"blessings" are derived ULTIMATELY from and within a SYSTEM of INJUSTICE.

Children....real, breathing babies suffer from disease, war, and malnutrition all over the planet while we club, drink, smoke, shop, "floss", tweet, text, and sing "hallelujah."

They suffer to provide you/me with the raw materials used to produce and manufacture our "blessings" and comfort.

These lesser kept subjects are, for the most part, out of sight and out of mind in lands that seem far away, but they are no less a person than you and I.

The Assignment of all people, but especially those "privileged and blessed" non-white people is to replace The System of White Supremacy/Racism with the System of Justice.

Have you done any work on this "Assignment" today?

The Grandest Snipe Hunt

From Wiki:
A snipe hunt, a form of wild-goose chase that is also known as a fool's errand, is a type of practical joke that involves experienced people making fun of credulous newcomers by giving them an impossible or imaginary task...

Thus describes the total existence of the majority of non-white peoples all over the planet:

A perpetual wild-goose chase.

While we are off chasing and defending undefined ideas and philosophies, the real task of producing /justice/ gets completely overlooked.

We genuinely sense that something isn't quite right, but ignorantly jump on the bandwagon (snipe hunt) of anything that has the appearance of being better, however:

Looks can be deceiving.

Non-white peoples, at a very early age, are taught certain "truths" that put us on this perpetual snipe hunt.

"Truths" such as:

Democrat
Democracy
Republic
Republican
Capitalism
Communism
Socialism
Free-Market
etc.

We spend the better part of our existence in defense of one or more of the above "truths" - while totally missing reality

The reality is that the above words, like so many others, do not accurately describe the way the world really works. As such, these words are used in many ways that cause massive confusion.  

This confusion is intentional.

Where there is confusion, there is imbalance. Where there is imbalance, /justice/ is not possible.

Simply Trying to Survive

/Justice/ Is Correct because:
"...Any people who value survival more than justice, do not understand that survival, without justice, is valueless.
Any people who do not know  the value of justice are an extremely ignorant people. This mostly pertains to Black and/or non-white people..." 
pg. 70 - The United Independent Compensatory Code/System/Concept

Times are tough, but "getting by" is simply not enough.

Delusions

"Delusion: false beliefs held by an individual which are stubbornly retained and defended despite their logical inconsistencies with objective reality and valid evidence to the contrary. Not only do such beliefs persist directly in the face of contradictory evidence, they persist in the face of continuous negative consequences resulting from their being held.....further....fantasy fills the vacuum of absent reality."
- Dr. Amos N. Wilson
As a direct result and consequence of our victimization, the victims of racism suffer from countless delusions.....

Logic will assist with gaining clarity.

Heaven, /Justice/ and Will

The other day, after speaking with some nice people that unexpectedly showed up at my door, I realized (again) the power of concept. Their concept has the power to compel them to canvass the neighborhood and knock on the doors of complete strangers to share their concept....

concept (noun):

1. a general notion or idea; .

2. an idea of something formed by mentally combining all its characteristics or particulars; a construct.

3. a directly conceived  or intuited object of thought.

4. something conceived in the mind

The realization came as the visitors spoke about the Creator's original intent and purpose for the earth.

They say that, at some unspecified time -  in the future, their god/jehovah will accomplish his original purpose by bringing about a literal world free of crime, sickness, death, and poverty....."paradise" is what they call it.

**Again, this discussion is about the power of concept - not "religious" belief.

Another concept: "heaven" - is shared by millions...billions?

Roughly stated, this concept says that Heaven is where the spirit will go upon death. In "heaven" there are nothing but good times....people at peace.

**Again,  we're talking concepts, and not arguing the validity of anyone's belief.

Concepts, as they are, are held in the mind. With certain effort, these concepts are thought to become reality at some future time.

Not ironically, the concepts of heaven, paradise, and (compensatory) /justice/ all share some characteristics.

Take your concept of heaven/paradise and compare it to the following compensatory definition/concept:

/Justice/

1. Balance between people,
2. Guaranteeing that no person is mistreated and,
3. Guaranteeing that the person who needs help the most, gets the most constructive help.

There is reason to believe that /justice/ is achievable when you (the reader) develop the will to produce it.

From the Introduction to the Word Guide:

"The will to produce justice is the first thing that must happen before justice can be produced."

Truth About Victim

Truth hurts.

"victim" (noun):

1. a person who suffers from a destructive or injurious action or agency

2. a person who is deceived or cheated, as by his or her own emotions or ignorance, by the dishonesty of others, or by some impersonal agency

3. a person or animal sacrificed or regarded as sacrificed

4. a living creature sacrificed in religious rites

5.  a person or thing that suffers harm, death, etc, from another or from some adverse act, circumstance, etc

6. a person who is tricked or swindled; dupe

When I admit that I am a Victim of Racism - I am being truthful and it is the beginning of the end to my victim-hood.

Is it a "crutch" or a "cop out" to admit the truth?

Does the Victim of Fraud "cop out" by honestly admitting that he has been taken advantage of?

Again, truth hurts.

Does hiding from truth make one stronger or weaker?

...Until it sinks in....

Racism (White Supremacy) is mistreatment and domination based on color.

Yes, people of the same color/non-color* mistreat each other on a daily basis throughout the world.

It is correct to describe this behavior as what it is: mistreatment.

On the other hand, Racism (White Supremacy) is a "specific" form of mistreatment that tends to hide in plain sight.

Like on the job.

When a non-white person is asked for their opinion in the decision-making process, only to have their opinion constantly "vetoed" in favor of someone white.

Or the non-white person's authority is repeatedly undermined (by a white person), even when the non-white person is following the rules and guidelines set forth by the company.

Or, when the non-white person receives a reprimand for making a mistake that could have been prevented had they received the same training and assistance afforded to their white colleagues.

The very fact that the overwhelming majority of industry and jobs are dominated and controlled by white persons is Racism.

There is nothing wrong with white people owning and controlling businesses, however, Racism pretends that this majority ownership is simply a natural development in the course of human events. Racism pretends that non-white people had an insignificant role in laying the foundation, literally, for these businesses and industries.

Forty acres and a mule - promised, but not delivered is Racism.

So again, Racism -White Supremacy is a very specific form of mistreatment that says, you're non-white, so you are a candidate for mistreatment and domination based on your color.

ALL mistreatment is incorrect and must be replaced with /justice/.

/JUSTICE/ is:

1. Balance between people,
2. Guaranteeing that no person is mistreated and,
3. Guaranteeing that the person who needs help the most, gets the most help.

/Justice/ is correct.

*White is the non-color i.e. "Colored go to the back of the bus" referred to "people of color"...white people are not colored...

The "State of Georgia" did not execute Troy Davis...

Need evidence?

Ok.

Open a new window or tab.

Go to your favorite online atlas (i.e. mapquest, google earth...) or better, get your globe if you have one.

Locate the "State of Georgia" on the map.

Notice anything?

ANYTHING??

Let me help you.

The "State of Georgia" is simply a landmass on a map (or globe). As such, "The State of Georgia" simply sits there (on the map), day after day, millennium after millennium , doing what ALL "states" (areas of land, trees, rivers) do.

Too simplistic? Too amateurish?
 
Maybe, maybe not.

Let the evidence speak for itself.

Since you're looking at "The State of Georgia" on the map (aren't you?) - ask it this question point blank:

"Did you execute Troy Davis on last night?"

If your map responded in any manner with a yes or no, this exercise is over (for obvious reasons), but my gut tells me that the inanimate object made no response at all....

So what exactly is the point of the exercise?

Glad you asked.

"States" / "countries" / "nations" / "courts" consist of people.

Most of these decision-making people are classified as "white."

The effective majority of these people believe in and practice the religion of "White Supremacy".

I DID NOT SAY THAT THEY ALL DO,  but I DID SAY THAT THE EFFECTIVE MAJORITY DO.

The few that do not are ineffective and statistically  irrelevant as they did not have the power to stop the more powerful white people from executing two people (one "white" and one non-"white") on last night.


"States" (land, trees,& rivers) do not and can not practice non-justice, however, the white people who believe in and practice White Supremacy do.

The first step toward producing /justice/ is recognizing the #1 obstacle in the process.

"Everybody is Racist"

Impossible, and ridiculous -  once you have a real definition for what Racism is and is not.


I could type it out, and later, I likely will, but people would rather watch tv or listen to sermons, speeches, etc so, put this one on  your MP3 player:

The Obstacle To /Justice/ Part I

"If you do not understand White Supremacy (Racism) --- what it is, and how it works --- everything else that you understand, will only confuse you." - Neely Fuller Jr.


Stop.

Read the above quote again.

This time, much slower and preferably out loud.

Why?

Because if you are like most people, you read it, but you didn't really "get it."

I'm equally as guilty.

When I first heard/read the statement, the gravity of those 24 words missed me almost completely.

Why?

Partly because of preconceived notions, but mainly because of ego.

Like many, I assumed I understood what Racism is, after all, I was born and raised in Birmingham, AL...the place where dynamite was used liberally and deliberately to terrorize and murder those that  might upset the status quo.

Little did I know or understand that Racism (being a total System of thought, speech, and action) is exponentially more complex than simply not being able to vote, having to sit in the back of the bus, or having to attend segregated schools.

Sure, most black people will say that they know what Racism is - being the undeniable reality that it is, however, NONE of us truly understand how Racism works.

The evidence?

NONE of us have figured out how to end it.

When you understand how a thing is put together, you also know how to take it apart.

While there are a lot of spokespersons, there are no proven experts on Racism.

Racism is White Supremacy and White Supremacy is Racism and it is THE #1 Obstacle to /justice/  as /justice/ and Racism cannot co-exist.

Stated again:

Racism (White Supremacy) is non-justice, thus /justice/ can not exist while non-justice exists.

Again, this is what /justice/ looks like and without it, /justice/ has not been produced:

1. Balance between people,
2. Guaranteeing that no person is mistreated and,
3. Guaranteeing that the person who needs help the most, gets the most constructive help.

What is Justice?

Succinctly put, /Justice/ is a great idea. Really, it is the greatest idea ever conceived, however, it has(had) one major flaw:

The idea, as popularly stated (i.e. "fairness","moral rightness") , is far too vague for any meaningful and lasting application.

"Justice" is a moving target that differs from one "culture" to the next, and even within the same "culture".

This vagueness allows /justice/ to remain, at best,  unevenly distributed, and at worst, outright denied...just ask Troy DavisUpdate 9/20.

To pin down the moving target that is /justice/, whenever the word /justice/ is used in this blog, I mean the following compensatory definition (as suggested to me by The Compensatory Concept.) :

1. Balance between people,
2. Guaranteeing that no person is mistreated and,
3. Guaranteeing that the person who needs help the most, gets the most constructive help.
 
Presently, /justice/ is only a concept and not the reality.

To bring the concept into reality requires YOUR participation.

Quite possibly, it may be your reason for existence.

/Justice/ Is Correct

When signing up for this blog service, among other things, you are presented with the Terms of Service.  The following quote is an excerpt:

"By their very nature, Blogger.com and Blogspot.com may carry offensive, harmful, inaccurate or otherwise inappropriate material, or in some cases, postings that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. We expect that you will use caution and common sense and exercise proper judgment when using Blogger.com and Blogspot.com..."
I added the italics and the orange color for emphasis.

In a System of Justice, such warnings will be unnecessary, HOWEVER, as we presently exist in a System of Non-Justice, it would be prudent to apply the above suggestion to not only blogger.com, but  EVERYTHING you read, EVERYTHING you see, and EVERYTHING you hear...

/Justice/ Is Correct because  intentionally offensive, harmful, inaccurate, inappropriate, mislabeled, and otherwise deceptive thought, speech, and/or action are all incorrect behaviors.

Why intentionally bring harm (injustice) to another person?
