“Race” in the American workplace from a simple Black perspective... by Grey Williamson


Black man, underpaid, spends considerable effort not being blamed for something that can get him fired while trying to avoid not feeling “slave-ish”.
Black woman, underpaid, does the job of easily a dozen people for a pat on the back and less than the pay rate of one... while she tries to keep her head down long enough to retire before being burned out.
Both periodically deal with the mindf**k of watching the lazy, complaining, incompetent, but entitled co-worker get promoted past them, earning ultimately many times their salary just for showing up.
Each spends considerable time questioning their respect and dedication to the efforts of those that came before them, while they feel twisted up inside for not carrying the flag of the Black empowerment agenda higher.
All the while, they contend with the presence of c**ns...
These horrible sellout, bucking and shining negros that slip into these environments, playing their colored skins into a tool to nestle into a position of comforting “Massa’s” testicles... long enough to become “your” managers.
You know them, these tough-talking, almost corporate looking, self-important proponents of doing things the “right way” and being “accountable”... while they screw up every position that they stole by taking credit for the work of others... leaving right before they get fired and remarkably continuing to fail uphill...
perpetually adding ammunition for discriminatory work-mates to fire at you while you’re just trying to get your job done and survive in the workplace.
A good part of the Black cultural “job” experience is trying to figure out how to resolve wanting to slant someone’s head sideways without upending your own precarious position... and medicating the little stabbings that occur daily...
The little deaths.
And you wonder why there’s so much substance abuse and family conflict in what is left of our communities.
I write this to let you know that you are not alone... that your truth is “the” truth, and you have the right to feel fu**ed up when that vacation day a**hole gets promoted and your buddy gets fired for taking an extra 10 minutes on that cigarette break...
... and the one that put the hammer on him was that lavender tie, custard pocket-square wearing... or that bobbed perm, too-red lipstick wearing... smilie-so-bright-at-owner supervisor that’s better than you... than all of us that just don’t get “it”.
Keep your head up.
Fight the power.
Live your life.

OUR AMERICA: "Whiteness," "Reverse Racism" and an Attempt at Invalidation

Source: FUSION: These Trump supporters went full-on Nazi almost immediately after he won

There is no such thing as "reverse racism". That is invalidating speech... insult added to injury... for victim's responses to the violation of violent oppression.
Like calling self-defense "reverse assault"...
Don't buy in to Gamespeak BS.

Some white people experience bigotry not racism. That would be impossible for a "white" person. 
Racism is a system by which European "royalty" convinced other Cultures and Nations to conspire with them in order to subjugate the indigenous Africans for economic effect.
Those who can be identified as, or whose lineage is able to be immediately traced to the indigenous African, are what is referred to now as "Black" people.

"What is a 'White' person?"

I am not trying to be antagonistic.
Racism is so deep that a gang has formed that now dominates the world, with no real definitive characteristics... only prohibitive ones...
And they got millions of people to buy in based on what... similar appearance...
Simply unified by the idea that at least, they aren't "Black"?
This lack of clarity makes for the incomplete communication that allows for the insidious to play vicious games in the gaps.
It is time to call a spade, "a spade", and to deal with the truth... whatever that may be...
'cause the lies are killing us.

This racist "definition" is not mine, it is simply history. Once you are aware of what happened, you can always opine about what it means for you, personally... but that does not change history.
This is what racism attempts to do... rewrite history for the justification of systemic oppression.
I have no disdain or dismissal for anyone who experiences bigotry... your experiences are real and significant.
But placing them under the categories of "Black" oppression diminishes the massive effect... the truth of the monstrous continuous building of a devastating mechanism of genocidal destruction.
There is a multi-level war going on against Blacks and their related peoples.
Denial and minimization of that is a huge part of the problem... and I won't take part in that.

Labels without meaning or real classification are BS... and all the bullsh*t is only artillery to indiscriminately fire at anyone who fails the brown bag test.
Bullsh*t.

All of our society is unstable, having been victimized by a small group of people working the concept of "racism" into the foundation of the living environment.
We all are suffering from a diminished existence because of the attempted invalidation of "Black" people.
To expect that only Blacks would suffer as the result of this, is unreasonable, illogical, and unrealistic.
Truth is the answer...
Truth as a bludgeon if necessary, because some people just won't get it unless they have to... unless pain is involved.

Still no one will define what a "white" person is.

What is the defining unique characteristics, the culture... the lineage... the history?

Will anyone answer this?

"What is a 'white' person?"

For some time now, I have been posing this question all over social media.
A "Black" person is someone who can be, or has been identified as having indigenous "African" ancestry. 
Easy.
But no one either has been able to, or is willing to seriously confront the "White" question?
Why?
Is it too convenient to just treat it like a gang or religious affiliation?
Are we afraid that a real definition would cause massive reclassification with legal ramifications?
Or do we just need to entertain a distracting mythology?

I honestly do not have a definition. 
I have asked for help.
How can we have real discussion of race, or real cultural "exchange" if we don't know what the "labels" mean or classifications are?
The question is still out there.

I don't want to be agreed with.
I just want truth.

It has been years now, and no one will discuss it.
The beat goes on.

MORE HILLARY CLINTON UNVEILING: Black Children to Prison Pipeline Matters

Bill Clinton is sometimes known as the first African-American president and Hillary Clinton won the South Carolina primary with an overwhelming majority of the African-American vote. But what is their true record on helping the black community? Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, presents a Final Judgment on Hillary Clinton's true record with African-Americans.

During a speech on criminal justice reform, she was confronted on her use of the label "Super Predators" for Black children with problematic behavior and equating them to wild dogs that need to be brought "to heel".

In response, Clinton lied... Casually...
"You want to hear the facts, or you just wanna talk... You know what, Nobody's ever asked me before... I'll be happy to address it, but you're the first person to ask me..."
And then invalidated... Casually...
"Okay, back to the issues."

She was asked, simply, to apologize for the role she played in mass incarceration... that her husband admitted publicly was a terrible mistake.

Her and her husband used welfare "reform", criminal justice "reform" and trade "reform" to destroy the lives of an entire generation of Black children from Arkansas to Haiti.

They celebrated the immediate results and her husband waited until after his two terms and "immunity" to admit his role in the moneymaking horrors.

This is not an exaggeration. The info is readily available.

The worst kind of racist is the one that likes you only in an inferior position, and expects your blind support... even to your own detriment.

They expect you to sell out your people for the opportunity to keep company with your superiors.

Open your eyes.

Protect your neck.

GLOBAL BLACKNESS: We Are Everyone: Intimidated by the Grandeur of Black World History?

Nayara Justino thought her dreams had come true when she was selected as the Globeleza carnival queen in 2013 after a public vote on one of Brazil's biggest TV shows. Subscribe to The Guardian ► http://is.gd/subscribeguardian But some regarded her complexion to be too dark to be an acceptable queen.

NAYARA JUSTINO (sOURCE:  uol )

NAYARA JUSTINO (sOURCE: uol)

While I am happy for Nayara Justino... and I know that there is a good percentage of the populace that needs to be struck in the head with the reality of that barbaric, satanic, historical experience...
I do not have it in me to watch another TV or Cinema production about the Black "slave" experience.
I just can't.
There are many that are intimidated by the grandeur of Black world history. They are afraid that, to address the whole of Black culture and personality would diminish theirs.
But when has that ever happened?
Where in history have we done anything but enhance and enrich every thing around us?
Who can say that they are not better for Black style and influence... and say it without Black contributions to their "voice"?
We are more than just the result of oppression and abuse. We have more to say than to scream out in pain... 
"We" are everyone. "We" own everyone's stories.
This is why I art.
I want to help to show the world a complete human existence, one "work" at a time...
And help it be made whole.
Ambitious?
So be it.
