"CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS MAN WAS AN ATTRACTION AT A NY ZOO???"


  

          

HOT DAMN!!! Just you think that you have heard it all, I mean you thought that you have heard the worst of the worst, you hear about this!!!>>> https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/03/the-man-who-was-caged-in-a-zoo

My sister just called me a couple of hours ago and asked me had I heard about this 2 hours ago, and she told me about this man, Ota Benga??? She told me that this African man had been locked up as an animal attraction at a zoo in NY. I looked up "Ota Benga" online and found out that this story is really true!!!...

"The black clergymen who had been summoned to Harlem’s Mount Olivet Baptist Church for an emergency meeting on the morning of Monday 10 September 1906, arrived in a state of outrage. A day earlier, the New York Times had reported that a young African man – a so-called “pygmy” – had been put on display in the monkey house of the city’s largest zoo. Under the headline “Bushman Shares a Cage With Bronx Park Apes”, the paper reported that crowds of up to 500 people at a time had gathered around the cage to gawk at the diminutive Ota Benga – just under 5ft tall, weighing 103lb – while he preoccupied himself with a pet parrot, deftly shot his bow and arrow, or wove a mat and hammock from bundles of twine placed in the cage. Children giggled and hooted with delight while adults laughed, many uneasily, at the sight"...

Yes!!! It is true that a human being is the lowest being on Gods earth!!! I don't have a lot to say about this and the more I write about it makes me feel sad and depressed. Brownsugar, (me), did not post this to make you feel as bad as I do but we all need to know as much about history as we can and I am not just speaking about Black history because there is truly people of all nationalities through human history that are and have been lower than the dirt we walk on and demanded respect as humans...???

This is just a piece of history I think we all need to know about, if you had never heard of this story before, please check out my links in this post...



I LUV U 2!!!

Just look at how Black folks are killing Black folks for nothing, I'm talking young children and even babies. It's just that Black crime is always highlighted in the media and crimes and bizarre stories about Whites and other races of people are pushed up under the rug...

I really didn't even read all of the information in the links that I posted because I just haven't been able to digest the whole story about this yet...

"White".

Can you really not do a simple thought experiment, and consider if the next time some atrocity carried out by black ppl is committed, put yourself in the shoes of someone reading the comment, "well, I know my black people, so I'm not surprised".

NOW, imagine you are a member of the tonight show band, and your website is the platform where such sentiments go unchecked and unmoderated.

To me, that sounds a lot like Steve K Bannon is on the drums of the Roots.

Except he's not...questo isn't a racist.

He just has terrible site management and moderation, and a dwindling number of users.

Of the sort that suggests, "the members of this racial group are especially inclined towards a given pathological behavior".

Pretty much the definition of racial bigotry, then.

YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A GENERALIZATION
GENERALIZATIONS ARE ROOTED IN IDEAS THAT LEAD OFF WITH "GENERALLY SPEAKING..."
GENERALLY SPEAKING, WHITE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HISTORICALLY RACIST
NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE
BUT YES WHITE PEOPLE

63. "So this is the road to go down?"
In response to Reply # 60


          

Lay observations about supposedly characteristic pathologies of various racial groups, given credence?

Statements like, "Well, you know how those _______________ are," considered rigorous?

And the hope is that, through dissemination of these kinds of generalizations, in a white supremacist, white-majority society, greater social cohesion and equity for minorities will come about?

94. "Whiteness is the common trait that forms the basis for an unending"
In response to Reply # 48


  

          


list of atrocities, a lot of which were committed in the name of protecting the purity and supremacy of whiteness. In this context, that comment and the sentiment behind it are more than called for.

Human being kept in a cage, which is derivative of the terrible things white people have done to non white people across all of human history. And yet you're more outraged at my four word response to "can you believe x y z" rather than the act itself. Go faux rage elsewhere.

Me and you did this dance already.

4. "For what it's worth"


A few thoughts that are maybe just stating the obvious on the defensive posture of discourse on "community deficiencies" that being black seems to necessitate:

>>>>>As a white man, if I think about "our issues" I'm often thinking about issues that I really don't consider specific to whites;


their universality is a given to me and I may just not have experienced them among non whites due to lack of knowledge on my part, or the current social structure not allowing them to be embodied by other races. The fact for example that there is white privilege and certain behaviors accompanying it doesn't mean that demonstrations of privilege by a similar dominant class of non whites would be radically different. They might be different in surface ways to do with culture, etc. but for a dominant class to take privileges is human nature in my view.

The same is true for an underclass. The issues of the black community aren't issues that would be intrinsic to black people in absolutely any circumstances. This is obvious unless you are a racist. You transplant people with white skin into the same circumstance you have the same outcome.

However, there are certain circumstances of the black predicament that reflect the operation of bad universal human impulses, in this case within black people, which are due to black circumstance more harmful in their outcomes. Think about the universal human trait of adolescent irresponsibility. A white adolescent person experiencing the same negative moment will have a better outcome. This is among other things what it means to be privileged.

When it comes to public discourse about our mistakes, I see the defensive posture of statements like, "don't make proper corrective prescriptions to billboard" as perfectly understandable (though possibly not optimal). If a white person laments some trait of young people in general, there is nobody to exploit this info; therefore the message if accurate is entirely constructive.



This is a really tough problem to solve; it's not easy


---------

This you?:
Why can't black would be constructive prescribers like Kendrick speak to all youth? Surely there are whites experiencing whatever deficiencies he's describing. If Kendrick said, "kids these days don't respect themselves," would this make sense? If not, it's not because of vast differences between young people. Hmm


-----------
Feel free to shed your white tears wherever you like. Mock me however makes you feel good. I'm good here. You can't goad me into feeling a like of empathy or sympathy for you or your folks. Can't bait me into a discussion.

I think he's just a half ass troll that wants to ride the "black people are the real racists" narrative to get recognized on a denny or bartek level.

I truly don't feel he's smart enough or self aware enough to want to be anything more than a poster with name recognition now that the "big names" are gone.

In response to Reply # 23


          

The anti-white racism that goes on on this site and more and more openly in supposedly progressive movements, is just one of those things.

It just happens to be infecting and going unchecked on a web platform that I've been a member of for 16 years, and that used to be a far more diverse and inclusive place.

Other than the five minutes a month I spend on here interacting with the imbeciles who seem to now run this asylum, you have no clue about what other causes I'm involved in. Think whatever the fuck you want.

I knew that I would be labelled a racist for standing up to these racists. That's just the way it goes in the witch-hunting, ideological purity testing race to the bottom the left is currently engaged in. Fuck em.

I got nothing to say really, except the "racism" you are speaking on isn't bidirectional the way you think it is.

"white" is not a slur. It has damn near become an anointing.

To perceive context in a racist situation does NOT make the person a racist. A witness is not indicted by what is witnessed.

...and the understanding of the listener. That's it.

White was being used as a slur in this thread, and more broadly on OKP in general, and I objected. I have always objected when racist generalizations are thrown around.

Thus far, nobody agrees with my objection.

That's because OKP has become a haven for this kind of anti-white generalization, and anyone who opposes it is nonsensically deemed a racist.

Today it's my turn.

I vaguely remember the thread, but just now I have reread (to refresh my memory) only the single, linked post (by denny):

"LM has been hijacked (if they were ever virtuous before) by an extremely amoral faction of post-modernism. This world-view of post-modernist marxism is the blindest of the blind. The best emotional indicator is the boldness in which they accept inherited cultural privilege. Cell phones....'wants'.....hair.

The narcissism of the west is quantifiable. But these kids is crazy. On cellphones."




Where is the racist generalization?

70. "I don't know enough about the subject to comment."
In response to Reply # 68


          

It's very hard to understand what forms the ideological core of mass decentralized movements like BLM. It's a bit of a Rorschach test and I'm sure my idea of what it stands for would differ from anybody else's.

Actually, I guess the question about BLM is less what it stands for (since undoubtedly there are various points of view within the movement, some contradictory), but what it accomplishes, and this too is in the eye of the beholder.

I gather that BLM is about a lot more than police brutality, for instance some chapters have charters declaring the enemy to be capitalism at large (again, I'm too ignorant on the subject to know how widespread this is within the movement).

But whether I agree with parts of denny's point or not, there's still no racist generalization that I can see in the post you linked. Is there one somewhere else in the thread?

That is really good work. But what I'm seeing is that legitimate work like this is taking a backseat to issues that are sexier and issues that don't concern the majority of the black population. Like whether the police are allowed to march in a gay pride parade. Or white university professors staying home for a day of absence. Or whether we should ban the use of the word 'Phenotype'.

I think it's fair to say that BLM leadership is outta touch with common black people. Their agenda is skewed towards the experience of middle-class, privileged university students who have a post-modern Marxist worldview. This is not a common idealogy in black communities. The friction between BLM and other factions of the Ferguson protests seemed to be the first sign of this...at least that I'm aware of. I'm suggesting that this divide is growing."

Any of these paragraphs considered racist generalizations ?

79. "BLM isn't a racial group."
In response to Reply # 75


          

Therefore Dennys characterization of it is irrelevant to this discussion

In the bottom paragraph, is it racist to generalize black interests as opposed to the nefarious in his view ends of BLM? It's definitely a racial generalization I wouldn't personally make (I don't usually speak in terms of one groups interests, and wouldn't seek to define black interests in this way), but is it racist to say a groupn is misrepresenting it's supposed constituency? Seems like a stretch,

So a white alt right troll in Canada can speak for common black people and Black communities ?

"BLM leadership is outta touch with common black people"

"This is not a common idealogy in black communities"

None of that is a racist generalization ?

82. "RE: Majority Black"
In response to Reply # 80


          

>When talks about people in the group he is talking about

That would not make any sense in context, given he's saying that black people don't have the same interests as BLM. He can't be both generalizing BLM as somehow representative of black people and also unrepresentative as well. Think about it.

It would only be racist, as I see it, to generalize in this way if one were saying that, essentially, the political movement in question would appeal to the interests of a community, if only the community were smarter/better/more morally sound. Denny is saying just the opposite--that BLM is morally bankrupt, and black people's interests aren't served by this deficient organization.

His statement can be incorrect, but it's hard to see how it could be considered racist.

In response to Reply # 82


          

if a political movement came along that was advocating shooting all humans in the head, you wouldn't have to assert anything definitive about Jews to say the movement poorly represents their interests.

86. "Denny thinks that it is."
In response to Reply # 85
Mon Jul-17-17 04:13 PM by Stringer Bell

          

He is arguing that the post-modernist, Marxist nature of BLM makes it genocidally dangerous.

I don't agree, but that it his argument.

*EDIT TO ADD* I shouldn't speak for Denny here. I think that's his argument. But even if I'm wrong about that, the simple point here is, for political movements that are deranged or fundamentally flawed, you wouldn't need to assert anything about a group to say the movement won't benefit that group. Example: Anti-capitalists aren't saying anything generalizing about Africans when they say capitalism exploits them. They are just saying, capitalism exploits humans, including Africans.

88. "Again, not a racial group."
In response to Reply # 87


          

You really don't see the distinction?

Republicans are majority white. Nobody with sense would argue that it's racist against whites to generalize about Republican political ideology. It's a political party that people actively chose based on a kinship with its written platform and traditions.

It would be racist (and stupid) though to generalize about white political ideology.

This whole exchange kicked off because a dumb guy generalized about the evil tendencies, not of a particular political faction united under a shared ideology, but of all people with white skin, full stop.

I have to depart this conversation as I'm late for something, but I think I've said my piece here anyway. Will stop back to read replies at a later time.

Common black people and Black communities is not a political party.

and you still did not explain why you objections are limited to this thread when the alt right troll is constantly posting racist and stupid generalized comments about people and groups.

He can't speak on a community that he is not a part of and he does not know anything about because he is not connected to the community. All of his theories and conclusions are based on assumptions. Given that he can't speak for common black people and he can't speak for Black communities.

In response to Reply # 47


  

          

"White" in this example is used as an identifier for the purposes of addressing the backdrop for which the context of a situation can exist. Again, White Supremacy allows this to be a factor. Acknowledging the qualifier does not make that make the person with the observation also "racist".

In response to Reply # 4


  

          

time that something like this has happened in history. As I stated before, all through the years, White crime has been shaded and covered up to give you the impression that everything that they did was okay. I am not surprised at all that this has happened before; for some strange reason, I am learning about so many things in Black history that I did not know. A lot of things that should have been in the news or newspapers that should have been told but I guess it took the www. to come into play before a lot of truths have leaked out.

AtoZ...I have another significant "cover-up" from the 1980's which happened right in Harvey, IL where there was a White female veterinarian that had sex with a dog and birthed a baby with fur and claws.

I have searched the internet and I don't see it anywhere. This happened at Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey, IL. I know that this story is true, first of all because my brother's friend was working security at that hospital at the time that it happened. Back in the 1980's, they covered the trial on Channel 7 Eyewitness news. During the coverage of this story they never told all of the details as far as the fact that the baby had fur and claws until the trial was over and they made it very brief...

If anyone has any information or link about this murder trial, please post a link, thank you !!!

black on black DOES NOT EXIST:

Bureau of Justice Statistics report explicitly states that between 2008 and 2012, “Poor urban blacks (51.3 per 1,000) had rates of violence similar to poor urban whites (56.4 per 1,000).”

Reply two is kinda scary because you black, allegedly?. Immediately reporting to the "but black on black crime" is regressive because it reinforces this white supremacist myth touted by alt right members such as the Stringer Bell above. It is incredibly disheartening to read a black woman resort to such a reply. DO BETTER, BE BETTER.

This reply of yours supports this myth that we're violent vile animals. Relax no one is going to hurt you or do anything like that because of a difference of opinion. I'd guess the vast majority of us are incredibly disillusioned and read your replies as strange considering you're one of us, allegedly?

From the amazing replies to this post, I'm kind of thinking, "maybe I'm not one of y'allz. Death & cruelty is just what it is regardless of what race commits the crime. Until we stop killing each other for nothing we are no better than any other race, AND...You're right, I can kind of relax when I walk down the street and see a group of our Black brothers hanging out and looking for somebody to fuck with because I always walk with 2 dogs, one with happens to be a big-assed pitbull, so you are right I don't have much to worry about 'cause, niggaz are scared of dogs...I can see it in their face when they grant me sidewalk !!!

^^ That destroys most of your arguments but let me continue to erase all of these false narratives our oppressors have fed you. You can't find a black on black crime stat from 2016 because they don't exist.

Your statements ignore proven data in regards to police harassment and intentional targeting of black americans by police across the country. Refer to data from Ferguson, New York's stop and frisk and other investigations around the country. Read these and stop before spouting BS about black people and crime.

Black on black crime is an alt right white supremacist myth used as a mantra parroted to dehumanize african-americans.

We need some happiness in this post to counteract your self hate.

Let me defecate on the eventual black prison myth you'll spout:
