From Dr. Boyce Watkins - YourBlackWorld.comBanning...

2008-05-05T20:38:00.000-04:00

From Dr. Boyce Watkins - YourBlackWorld.comBanning Bill O’Reilly – The Patriotic Thing to Do As some of you know, I’ve interacted with Bill O’Reilly several times on his TV and radio shows. I have also had the “pleasure” of interacting with Sean Hannity, host of Hannity and Colmes, another show on Fox. Rush Limbaugh, the ex-drug addict, is another member of the Right Wing Axis of Ignorance, consisting of individuals who use their platforms to socially terrorize people of color. We are all affected by this and confront this hatred every day at work and at school. All of us know what it’s like to deal with that racist, sexist SOB who worships Bill O’Reilly because O’Reilly validates his racism. This person may be our boss, our co-worker or some other entitled, yet ignorant individual who has not been educated on the racial history of our nation.Today I woke up angry. I was angry because I thought about what Hannity, O’Reilly and others have done to this election. They’ve worked to bring the worst out in the American people to attack Senator Barack Obama, who has run one of the classiest, most intelligent and conscientious campaigns in American history. The moment that America was on its way toward making a breakthrough in its addiction to racism, the hate mongers from the Axis of Ignorance came marching in to remind America that Obama was just a black little boy.Bill O’Reilly needs to be taken off the air. Either he is ignorant, racist or represents the interests of racists. Either way, I continue to be insulted by the fact that this man feels comfortable attacking and disrespecting people of color. The type of racism that he and his sidekick Bernard Goldberg bring to the table is nothing short of the same old stuff that we’ve been dealing with for the past 400 years. We also can’t forget Juan Williams, the “Eternal Happy Negro” who conspires to provide black (not African-American, for he is Panamanian) validation for these racist viewpoints.Among other things, O’Reilly has mentioned the idea of “lynching” Michelle Obama over controversial comments and stated that Hurricane Katrina victims deserved to be abandoned to die by the Federal Government. I can only imagine what would happen if someone said that the 9/11 victims deserved to die…….a black host making that kind of comment would be taken off the air IMMEDIATELY. I personally continue to fight these issues when I am on TV, but there is a point of disbelief one reaches when you see someone get away with one hateful sentence after another from networks that truly don’t give a damn what black people think. We are invisible, irrelevant and disregarded by many of these shows. Personally, I am tired of it. I am tired of the unfair attacks on Senator Barack Obama, which represent the consistent, racist double standard of Fox News reporting. These individuals are consistently validated, even though they are far less educated, far more inflammatory and much less conscientious than Jeremiah Wright, the man they were licensed to demonize this past month. My skin shudders and my stomach turns when I hear any of them speak, and I do all I can to avoid turning to that channel. I have done a lot of interviews with Fox News in the past, and I don’t fault those who still do. But personally, I just can’t stomach them anymore.I ask those who believe in American honor and decency to ignore this network. Disregard the analysis, don’t respond to O’Reilly, Hannity or any other racist who says something you don’t agree with. Kill the Devil by starving it of attention. Don’t even watch Fox so you can “see what the enemy is thinking”. Just let them go and focus on a positive and productive future of the country that was built by your people.If you are so compelled, you may want to email Fox News (email addresses are below) reminding them that this behavior will not be tolerated. If you want to get something off your chest, please email us at info@[...]



Questions to which I am still trying to understand...

2008-05-01T14:41:00.000-04:00

Questions to which I am still trying to understand the answers:

1. Just why is it so important for the elected leadership of our country and our free press, which Jefferson called "the only tocsin of a nation," to focus its energies and intellect on criticizing the views of a private African American citizen? What, we haven't spent enough time and energy in this country giving black people a hard time over the past 400 years or so?

2. Why can't "the only tocsin of a nation" take a couple of minutes off of the 24/7 coverage of a private citizen's opinions to investigate and inform the citizenry about issues about which our elected officials can actually do something? As one tiny example, why can't "the only tocsin of a nation" explore why it is that the leadership of this country (i.e., both its Republican-led executive and Democratic-led legislative) cannot even get it together to renew the status quo for development of wind power and solar power in this country (by simply passing an extension of already-existing tax credits)?


3. Can we get a little humility in this country (Part I)? Isn't it undignified for us to permit (let alone demand) our leaders to crow, over and over, that the USA is the greatest country on Earth? In fact, isn't that just a little goshdarn obnoxious ?

4. Can we get a little humility in this country (Part II)? What, exactly, is not correct and factually true about Rev. Wright's statement, "We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans, and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back to our own front yards." Aside from "we never batted an eye" (which seems, in context, intended as a rhetorical flourish rather than a factual assertion), what, exactly, is factually incorrect about his statement? After all, it's not very different from what some very qualified people conclude (e.g., Michael Scheurer, Chalmers Johnson ["author of the prophetic book Blowback, written before 9/11"]). What might be possible for us and our progeny if, instead of getting all offended, we were to actually listen and try to learn something and do better next time?

5. Finally, who decreed that all politicians have to wear that particular tiny little anal-retentive flag pin to prove that they love this country? This is America, dammit! The next time some snivelling little "George Stay-on-top-of-this" tries this on the O man, I recommend that he pin an index-card signed photo of this or maybe this on his lapel , look him straight in the eye, and say, "Who are you to question the way I love my country, little fella?"

Sorry. Just had a few things to get off my chest.

Constructive feedback: You put words in my mouth and I'm too busy to go point by point with you. If having a black man like Obama is not going to make a difference, then vote for McCain.

2008-05-01T07:13:00.000-04:00

Michelle,

I know. Hillary and Huma.

Now what kind of shit is this? If the people at FOX Noise gets ahold of this, they'll destroy the Borg Queen for Obama!

2008-05-01T06:52:00.000-04:00

One of the odd thoughts which has occurred to me is that perhaps the Rev Dr Wright's comments were meant to push Mr Obama into running more of a "black" campaign.

Is that way off base?

2008-05-01T05:21:00.000-04:00

@Christopher about the lesbian/bi Hillary ... rumors or whatever?

Dear god please don't let Hillary be family. It's going to give the rest of us a bad name if she is.

Please please no. No. Do not want!

Whatever is true works for me but I hope it's not true because -- just no.

But seriously: if she is actually family and Senator Obama used that against her and played up his own acceptable hetero-ness, that would lose him my vote -- just like that. Because what kind of BS would that be for him to use it like that? That would just be a freaking ugly homophobic thing to do. Because on what basis would her being queer be reason for her not to be in office?

I think she should not be in office because she is a batshit-crazy corrupt power-hungry white terror on two feet. Straight or not, that's the problem with her as I see it.

I am a very strong Obama supporter BTW. And unlike Ms. Hillary he speaks truth to and about the LGBT communities, from what I can see.

Maybe you were joking, though. I'm so very much at that place about this primary where satire and reality begin to blur for me.

2008-05-01T01:35:00.000-04:00

Don't stay home in November. If Obama doesn't get the nomination and that's who you wanted to vote for look into the Green or Libertarian parties or write his name on the ballot - do something. Vote for your values. Don't hold your nose or compromise and hope it will all work out, too many of our ancestors DIED for the right to vote. We have to make sure they count for something.

2008-04-30T23:18:00.000-04:00

The best comments were by west coast story. Very thoughtful. This is the explanation for all the negativity towards barack from other blacks and even from field negro: "Black people are never going to overcome a damn thing. We can't stand to be supportive of a black person who has exceptional talent. We pick at him/her until we've reduced them to an n-word then we feel good because we think we've knocked them down to our level. Crabs in a barrel. We are so insecure that we assume anyone doing better than us believes they ARE better than us and who do they think they are? Someone close to me is voting for Hillary because "Michelle Obama thinks she' so much..." Yep, that's how we make our public policy decisions, like pouting, jealous, children. "

west coast story another gem: "White people can always rely on some self hating black person to do their dirty work for them."

Amen brother.

Now as for constructive feedback - i think he/she/it is a really really miserable person. He/she/it comes here purposely to be combative and argue with people. Talk about annoying. Get a life constructive. Or are you in love with field negro?

2008-04-30T23:04:00.000-04:00

All this mess going on the media about Billary, AARP McClain, and Obama has turn me back to watching regular tv shows...so Thanks to all this political smokescreen, I am now watching my previous shows...tried of giving the media rating...It all boils down to this, "vote for Obama or have 8 or 4 years of another f_ck up ecomony"...Tell that to the rest of clueless folks....

2008-04-30T22:45:00.000-04:00

Let me guess; this "someone", this "man" you talk about, he is a democrat, right? And of course you want us to follow your "man" to the light. Am I correct?

".. am more concerned about the question of if a certain IDEOLOGY that is prone to lump assumptions invalidism and inferiority upon Black people via their policies that attempt to always "distribute fish" to us.....can EVER view us as EQUAL human beings.."

Well I actually like "fish." So keep it coming. What good is it to teach me how to fish if there isn't any fish in the lake?

".. there are far, far, far more White Liberal Extremists with regards to ECONOMICS, PROPERTY RIGHTS (ie: confiscatory taxation), FOREIGN POLICY and IMMIGRATION that Obama is NOT going to distance himself from. He is THEM and THEM is HE."

Well I will be damned, I didn't know that. Well the "O" man has my vote now for sure.

[quote]andyfrombrooklyn, don't mind con...feedback; he thinks that only repub-lie-cans are human beings.[/quote]

Actually Field Negro - I have no control over what the Republicans Do.

I am more concerned about the question of if a certain IDEOLOGY that is prone to lump assumptions invalidism and inferiority upon Black people via their policies that attempt to always "distribute fish" to us.....can EVER view us as EQUAL human beings when they are the hand that provides for the "needy" in exchange for our votes?

What do you think Field Negro?

When someone has you where it is a matter of having you EXCITED to vote for them or......you don't vote at all and thus he provides you with VAN SERVICE to the polls to do what he knows you are going to do rather than ISSUE ADS spent in your community to CONVINCE you via your intellect (as you look past what your eyes tell you about their EXISTING domination of your community) indeed this man has you right where YOU benefit him the most. The reverse is very, very questionable.

2008-04-30T22:27:00.000-04:00

[quote]Black people are so in love with feeling good for five minutes, they are happy to dismiss an opportunity to have a black man in the Oval Office who understands our issues. [/quote]West Coast Story:You need to see the recently re-released documentary "Eyes On The Prize II". If you remove the name Barack Obama and President and replace it with Carl Stokes and Cleveland - it is eery how much history is repeating itself regarding the "AUDACITY OF HOPE" expressed by Black folks that ONE BLACK MAN in an elected office is going to do WONDERS for their community. While I am not saying that Stokes was a bad mayor I AM saying that the Cleveland of 2008 did not transform into the vision that was hoped by laying all of our dreams out for the ONE BLACK MAN IN OFFICE.For me as a Black man who is OBSERVING MY PEOPLE IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THAT WHICH WE ARE BEHOLDEN TO BUT THAT WHICH IS ZAPPING US OF OUR POWER - it is clear to me that much of this is misplaced energy and assumptions of what POLITICAL POWER can do for you while failing to build up ECONOMIC, ACADEMIC and to some extent MILITARY power before hand.You can ignore everything above that I have said only if you accept this one summary statement:SOME OF YOU ARE SEEKING TO HAVE THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT IN OFFICE.........I am seeking TO HAVE OUR COMMUNITIES TRANSFORMED INTO AREAS THAT ARE MORE IN LINE WITH OUR COMMON GOALS AS A PEOPLE.I dare to say that we can make an extrapolation by referencing the fact that despite Philly, Baltimore, DC, Detroit, New Orleans, Newark and many other cities having had BOTH a Black (more accurately - an individual who is POPULARLY elected by our community) 'chief executive' and an overwhelming legislative body that is of the favored party and STILL this has not translated into the expected transformation of our communities.CLEARLY political power in the AMERICAN political system alone IS NOT the gateway toward the fix in our community.[quote]Just like all those handkerchief head buffoons who were clapping and cheering during Wright's Monday speech. Cornell West was in the front row. Thank you for confirming my distaste for that phony Negro.[/quote]Unfortunately CORNEL WEST is a very, very, very POPULAR FIGURE with the same Black folks that you talk about.[quote]Black people are never going to overcome a damn thing.[/quote]I reject this statement.Ours is a problem with MANAGEMENT and EXECUTION rather than some permanent inferiority. [quote] We can't stand to be supportive of a black person who has exceptional talent.[/quote]West Coast Story:This is a ridiculous comment. So often I have heard people talk about OBAMA'S INTELLIGENCE with the assumption that I am supposed to yield to him because he is "smart" or something. This in itself is not a justification to vote for the man. I damned sure guarantee that a "TALENTED Black conservative running as an evil Republican" will not be able to draw upon these same characteristics for support among Black people. Let's stop faking the funk on this one.For me - Barack Obama is like the "Verizon Wireless" man. Its not just him to look at - it is the whole cast of LEFT WING EXTREMISTS who tags along with him. I was actually disappointed that he sort of overgeneralized about Wright on Monday. Even as an evil Black Conservative I agreed with his history lesson about the Black church and other elements.For me - it is not just the Black Leftwing Nationalist Church that is tied around Obama's neck - there are far, far, far more White Liberal Extremists with regards to ECONOMICS, PROPERTY RIGHTS (ie: confiscatory taxation), FOREIGN POLICY and IMMIGRATION that Obama is NOT going to distance himself from. He is THEM and THEM is HE.If you want to talk abo[...]

I know, Field. And we're cool too.

I'm just feeling protective about Barack nowadays. He's been drop kicked by so many comers and mealtickets in the media and it just ain't right.

I feel like we need to circle the wagons, send him love and defend him against the evil Hillbots.

And what's wrong iwth Clowning? Sometimes folk need to be clowned. Sometimes they need smartass comments dropped on them so they get the point.

What's wrong with that.

The amn was having a good time sticking it to the media bastards who've called him crazy, a wackadoodle, and racist.

They didn't treat him with measured tones and respect. Why should he?

What? WTF? Field, you were dogging Barack on NPR?

Why? Tell us it isn't so? Barack doesn't need anymore people dogging him. What he needs are people to elevate him. Be kind to him. Show him the respect he deserves.

Field

I heard you blogger's session on NPR.

You just had to dog the "O" man - you were like a msm pundit, you just had to squeeze it in - off topic.

Turn the knife Field.

Other than that, you were great.

2008-04-30T20:44:00.000-04:00

You know, when my ex the civil rights lawyer told me that a black man in the Republican Party was like a deer being a member of the NRA, I thought that the only person I'd have to use that line on was my twin brother.

Thank you, Mr. Reilly, for giving me another chance to drag it out.

I don't understand you anymore than I understand my twin brother, but then again, I'm an independent agnostic and he's a Republican, right wing Christian who actually has no real knowledge of the totality of Christianity.

I guess in it's own sick, twisted way, it makes sense.

This is actually a cool blog. I'll make it a point to check it out. Name's Denise by the way, but i'll come up id'ed by my blog. Sorry 'bout that.

2008-04-30T20:33:00.000-04:00

Wow Field you got the conversation started and I think Christopher brought levity though. What we gonna do after all this is over? I donn't think Rev. Wright played the crab but had his feelings hurt and decided to show his butt.

Somebody said it right earlier when they said that he should have been more diplomatic. Most of what he said was on point but the AIDS thing makes him sound like a lunatic to the true believers. Most of us know that this government has never been moral and is capable of doing anything for the sake of power or profit. There were enough real injustices that he could have referenced without allowing the thought initiators (press)to tell everyone that he is crazy.

If Obama wins it will definitely bring us closer to real change because the disillusionment that will surely come about when it becomes clear that he cannot or will not change the direction of US imperialism, may result in folks concluding that real change will have to come from the people.

Macdaddy: "The bottomline for me is that Barack, a black man, is trying to run for president in racist, white America and, therefore, has to make compromises that some of us blacks and progressives don't like. If he doesn't, he won't be president."

That's it--enough said!

2008-04-30T17:23:00.000-04:00

Hey, now. If they had broke this before Iowa, he'd be done. Now we got no choice, and that's the truth. Obama will remain my choice, because change is necessary (as is hard truth, though that's bad for politicking).

It's all in psychology. Everyone who voted for Obama, they already committed. Everyone who Bought Obama with nickels and dimes and a ten-spot that came out of their lunch money? They committed. They not gonna change because of some bubeemitzeis (fairy tales).
