PARIS - Outta my life


In my way of thinking about black on black violence from my studies and personal experiences it is an effect / consequence rather than a cause / primary issue. We live in the citadel culture of violence. There should be no denial that from its inception America has been a country that glorifies wars and violence in the name of "peace". She has been at war against Afrikan / Black people from the time they brought us here against our will to date ( a most violent process). Every year in its history America has been at war and imposing violence in one form or another against one or more of its "adversaries". Black people were/are reared and breed in a culture of white mob violence, lynching, slavery, suffering and death. The history of violence against Afrikans in Amerikkka is so horrific as to be almost beyond belief. Socio-structural and institutional violence (vertical violence) begets interpersonal and intrapersonal violence (horizontal violence). Thus, the problem of black on black violence is a problem of cultural mis -orientation, self-hatred and self-alienation. What we are seeing manifest as black on black violence is an emulation of the cultural ways of our oppressor. We have internalized his ways. This is called intropression: When the oppressed are subject to oppression as long as us we internalize the oppressor and thus do to ourselves what the oppressor once did to us. When a Black man kills another Black man he's saying in his mind "I'm gon kill you nigga" and in actuality he's killing himself who he hates so much because he was train to do so...CULTURAL MIS-ORIENTATION LEADS TO SELF HATRED. Superimpose this on the facts of unprecedented unemployment rates in our communities, miseducation and the dope game / government element facilitated narcotization of our communities (CIA) , mass media propaganda that feeds us a study diet of consummerism, materialism and individualism; breeding jealousy, envy and haterism and you have all the ingredients for self destruction. That being said, for those of us that are suffering from passivist psycho -pathology, please keep in mind that much of the life process is necessarily a violent experience, eg. childbirth, securing the meat that most of us eat and even the hot food you put in your mouth are all violent acts. My point here is that maybe the solution to black on black violence in amerikkka is RBG Luv. That is to say, proper knowledge and cultural orientation will inform us that we need to get RBGed Up and fight against the causes to prevent the effect. In doing this however, the first government we must overthrow is the government of our own corrupt minds. Something RBG Street Scholars Think Tank is about helping us do.

Black On Black Violence - Real Talk

By Paris

What is it with us? Why do we kill each other at a rate that's disproportionately higher than that of other people? Sure, we've heard the excuses before - that we're prone to crime, violent by nature, and poor and oppressed - but what are the real causes? Here we are, in 2006, countless articles & news reports later, and our precious communities are still in a state of distress. It appears that the problem of black on black crime doesn't seem to be improving, but rather steadily getting worse by the day. But what's really going on?...Read More

American soldier exposes US policy in Iraq

"KILL EVERYBODY" - US ARMY SPECIALIST DARRELL ANDERSON EXPOSES US POLICY "I joined in '03," 'cause I was broke, I needed money, but I was a young American kid, I wanted to fight in a war. I joined up. [A] month out of training I arrived in Baghdad, Iraq, January '04. Saddam's been captured. And I get there and the guys I'm serving with have been there for six months already; they were there in '03. And I go, "Well, you know what, I think it's come out that, you know, these people had nothing to do with 9/11, there was no Iraqi on those planes. We can see around here there's no Al Qaida, there's no terrorist syndicates in Baghdad, or Iraq. Saddam had stamped 'em out." And I asked my buddies, "Well, you know, we're here to find 'weapons of mass destruction'." And they laughed at me. And I said, "Well, you know, we're here to 'help the people.'" And they laughed at me. And I said, "What's our mission? What's our goal?"...They're like, "All we're trying to do is make it home alive..." Anderson describes the escalation of violence against unarmed civilians: "In April, they told us, "In a crowded area, if one person shoots at you, kill everybody." Anderson explains the rationale from the officers: "They [members of the crowd of people] are letting them [the person or persons firing at the U.S. military] attack you. They're no longer innocent if they're there at the time of the crime..." (9/11 conference, Chandler AZ Feb 23-25, 2007) / snowshoefilms post-production/ 9:46

Some relevant background: In trying to suppress the Yugoslavian resistance, Nazi Gen. Keitel, supreme commander of the armed forces, issued this order in Sept. 1941:
"In order to nip disorders in the bud the sternest measures must be applied at the first sign of insurrection. It should also be taken into consideration that in the countries in question a human life is often valueless. In a reprisal for the life of a German soldier, the general rule should be capital punishment for 50-100 Communists. The manner of execution must have a frightening effect."

Perhaps the American generals, the neo-cons, and the new world order planners who direct them are copying the Nazi playbook. More likely, though, they are progressing along parallel lines because they've committed the same egregious war crimes; they can only compound their crimes until they "kill everybody" who resists them. The Yugoslavian partisans fighting German fascism were called "communists." Today, U.S. fascism calls that same resistance in Iraq and Afghanistan "terrorist." Gen. Keitel was hanged for this and other war crimes by the Nuremberg Tribunal on October 16, 1946.

After 7 months in Iraq, Darrell Anderson, 22, decided that he wasn't to risk going back to Iraq to kill or be killed. He fled to Canada, a deserter. While there, though, he felt he wasn't doing enough to expose and stop the war and returned to U.S. and, possibly, a long prison sentence. Perhaps to undermine the legal case of other deserters in Canada, the U.S. military imprisoned Anderson only a few days, releasing him with a 'less than honorable' discharge. Given Anderson's heroic determination to organize and help GI and other war resisters, the U.S. military may come to believe they've made a mistake.
