As White Supremacy Annihilates the Black Community, Why Do So Many Black Men Remain Obsessed with Homosexuality?

As White Supremacy Annihilates the Black Community, Why Do So Many Black Men Remain Obsessed with Homosexuality?

by F. Palmer

As someone who holds no animus to any member of the LGBT community for their residence gay_dads.jpgin this group and also a black man who works in the death grip of white supremacy to earn enough to survive and help out my family and friends to the best of my ability, I must say the following towards any black or African man who believes that gay men are weak by nature and less than a “real man” due to a perceived natural servility and acquiescence of a s*xual nature that is extrapolated out to all other human interactions:

Memo to all black men, the greatest sign of our collective servility in the white mind is not our sexual identity of a homos*xual nature or anything else. It is the BLATANT obsequious nature we exhibit in every other aspect of our lives as we traipse off to work everyday to prop up a system that has been committing genocide on black people across the globe for centuries now.

If you got the average white person to list the reasons why black people are naturally inferior, homos*xuality wouldn’t even make the list. It is a preoccupation TOTALLY in the black male mind. Using prison as an extreme example, it wouldn’t be the homos*xuality that is practiced in prison by ALL people in any place, be it by force or choice, where white judgment would reside, but that we allow the state to imprison our children at increasing rates and sit silently while the adults are institutionalized to the point where that is tragically becoming our NORMAL existence.

Even during the hallowed days of African freedom in the mother land to our most miserable days on any plantation in the Western world during the African diaspora, the homos*xuality of the African wasn’t the reason that the European designated us as beasts of burden. It was the fact we were and are Africans…period..end of story. I defy ANYONE to find a justification in the long history of white supremacist screeds of anglo subjugation of the African being our homos*xuality or perceived effeminate attributes. Because if you do believe the bullsh¡t about there being no homos*xuality in Africa before the European, then you must admit that the disgust and revilement of us didn’t emanate from homos*xuality since your argument is that it didn’t exist. So to sit back now and think that is on the docket of things that represent our animalistic nature to anglo society is f*cking ludicrous.

The fact that black men continuously harp on the fear of being perceived as “weak” due to this idiotic focus on homos*xuality being synonymous with black men in the white mind, is sickening since we are two-legged swine and soldiers policing, imprisoning and killing black and brown people in all corners of the world, helping to build bombs and munitions to decimate non-anglos without a care, assisting in every type of parasitic relationship between the Global North and the Global South, handmaidens in the destruction of the Earth itself and innumerable other endeavors which makes it plainly clear that it hasn’t sunk into our thick collective souls that this is what REALLY makes the usual white man laugh at us, while shrugging his shoulders at our s*x lives. If anything, the only reason the average white person would want more black folks on this Earth is to profit off our misery that has always been comparable to a child burning ants with a magnifying glass for personal amusement.

Yet, Negroes will isolate their existence to this non-issue in the white mind to the detriment of everything else of REAL importance in the greatest mass delusion in society. The constant current harangue of black men shouting they aren’t gay is akin to a boy incessantly telling his father he is strong.

Then, in a sign of total dismissiveness that is above the child’s head where he placates the boy’s entreaties with a smile and encouragement that masks inner laughter about the childish musings, white men snicker behind the back of black men and roll their eyes. I am waiting for the day that black men start making this part of their general introduction to white people since we are fixated on their views of us as these s*xually feminine or masculine individuals , “Hi, my name is James and I am not gay”…The same Negro who preens with pride with sh*t like ‘Once you go black, you never go back’ or the MYTHOLOGY of the size of the black genitalia is the same mfer who becomes angry at any slights against his manhood with homos*xuality being the greatest one and having ALL of this encompassing the greatest sign of SELF-DEBASEMENT where the black man has turned himself into the very animal we have always said we weren’t in our own f*cking mind.

Although a person who is guilty of helping to contribute to this system myself to whatever degree, even if it is for altruistic reasons such as helping out as many people as I can financially as long as I can until I can’t take it anymore or the white man I work for has no more use for me, I can still say the above since I not only hold no animus towards the LGBT community, but align my liberation efforts with theirs in removing the shackles of oppression from all of our lives in whatever area they may reside.

F. Palmer’s blog posts are a new feature at BreakingBrown for sharing a black man’s painfully honest, bullsh*t free observations.

White High School Dropout Has Same Chances of Getting a Job as Black College Graduate

White High School Dropout Has Same Chances of Getting a Job as Black College Graduate

Probably the most pervasive myth in the American lexicon is that the U.S. is a meritocracy. The reason affirmativeblack_college action exists is to thwart the entrenched bias in education and employment, but now that neo-liberals and conservatives are leaning toward a color-blind approach, it is imperative that those on the forefront of these debates draw attention to rampant bias that still exists in the U.S.

When it comes to employment, a white high school drop-out has the same chance of getting a job as a black college graduate. That fact alone highlights the level of bias still present in the U.S., but it doesn’t end there.

According to ThinkProgress, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census researched how race impacts education and employment and the result should disabuse anyone of the notion that the U.S. is even close to becoming a post-racial society. The study found that a black man with an associates degree has the same chance of getting a job as a white man with only a high school diploma.

“At every level of education, race impacts a person’s chance of getting a job,” researcher Tom Allison told ThinkProgress. This fact is evidenced not only by the overall unemployment rate, but the unemployment rate for black millennials, which was 16.6 percent in May, as compared to 7.1 percent for white millennials.

What are all the factors contributing to a high unemployment rate for blacks?

The study attributes the employment gap mainly to hiring discrimination, high incarceration rates for black people, and African Americans’ lack of inherited wealth from past generations due to a long history of discrimination. Less inherited wealth results in low homeownership rates and high deficits among African Americans: While a college-educated white American has an average net worth of $75,000, a college-educated black American has a net worth of less than $17,500.

There is a bright light though, considering that, according to Rory O’Sullivan of the Young Invincibles’, blacks do much better when they obtain advanced degrees. As an example, “a professional degree gives a black male a 146 percent larger increase in employment opportunities than his white counterparts.”

Texas Open Carry Advocates Cancel March Through Black Neighborhood

Texas Open Carry Advocates Cancel March Through Black Neighborhood

Conservatives typically claim that although they’re not in favor of affirmative action, they are in favor of a color blind society. This, however, does not explain why a Texas gun advocacy group canceled a march through the mostly African-American Fifth Ward community.

According to organizers, the Sunday march was canceled due to a scheduling snafu, but the change has some wondering whether the gun advocates were having second thoughts about taking their message to a black neighborhood.

The group had previously trumpeted the march as a way to “show that gun rights belong to all,” before abruptly calling it off.

“In order to respond directly to this challenge by a liberal, anti-gun race baiter, we planned an event in 5th Ward. It was a spur of the moment, ‘we’ll prove you wrong’ rush effort,” said gun rights advocate David Amad, according to The Raw Story.

“First of all, we don’t see color,” he explained. “Gun rights don’t discriminate based on skin color and neither will we.”

Amad previously told the Houston Chronicle that the type of response they received would be based on how they carried themselves during the march: “If you go marching through the Fifth Ward like a bunch of stuffy old white boys carrying guns and spitting tobacco you’ll get a bad response, but if you go in there talking to people like human beings and explain what you’re doing, the response will be different.”

Amad also noted that they’d be collecting donations for a food drive.

Still, even though this march has been in the works for a while, Amad expects everyone to believe that a scheduling conflict was the reason for calling it off. Maybe the optics of a bunch of white men marching through a black neighborhood with guns had something to do with it.

Conservative White Observers Will be Trolling Black Mississippi Voters in Tomorrow’s Primary

Conservative White Observers Will be Trolling Black Mississippi Voters in Tomorrow’s Primary

As BreakingBrown reported earlier today, embattled Mississippi U.S. Senator Thad Cochran has reached out to black voterblack voters in hopes of pulling victory from the jaws of defeat in Tuesday’s primary.

At least a dozen black preachers met at a church to devise a plan to convince their flock to support Republican incumbent Thad Cochran, but now there’s a new obstacle. Cochran’s opponent, Chris McDaniel, is supported by the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party, and  those sympathetic to McDaniel will be trolling black precincts to ensure that there are no abnormalities.

The Wire reports that conservative backers of McDaniel–including the Senate Conservative Fund, FreedomWorks, and the Tea Party Patriots–have formed a group of election observers concerned about Cochran’s outreach to African-Americans.

“The laws in Mississippi are unusually open to poll watching from the outside,” Ken Cuccinelli, the Senate Conservatives Fund’s president reportedly said. “We’re going to take full advantage of that and we’re going to lay eyes on Cochran’s effort to bring Democrats in … And of course, if they voted in primaries, that’s illegal.”

Since Mississippi voters aren’t required to register for a party, voters of any political affiliation can vote in the run-off election so long as they didn’t vote in the June 3 Democratic primary.

Many view the Tea Party’s effort to keep Democratic voters from crossing over as a thinly veiled attempt to keep black voters from casting a vote for Cochran.

Black Miss. Preachers Persuade Congregation to Vote for Anti-Affirmative Action Republican

Sen. Thad Cochran

If Mississippi U.S. Senator Thad Cochran makes it past tomorrow’s primary, he may owe his win to black pastors who have been working behind the scenes to get him elected.

The New York Times reports that a dozen black pastors met in a store front church to devise a plan for convincing their members to support Sen. Cochran in the primary.

In explaining their position, Bishop Ronnie C. Crudup Sr., a pastor at the New Horizon Church International, said that “in tough times, you’ve got to do some unusual things.”

He added: “You’ve got to be willing to cross the line sometimes, and go over to some strange places for our interests.”

But what exactly are “our” interests? And since when has Cochran supported them? Cochran is rated at zero percent by the ACLU, indicating an “anti-civil rights” stance, according to ontheissues.org. He is also anti-affirmative action, receiving only an eleven percent approval from the NAACP.

Miss. Democrats are giddy at the thought of Cochran losing his primary to Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel since it could open the door for a Democratic win.

Meanwhile, Cochran’s camp knows it must expand its base and is looking to black voters to rescue their candidate.

“We’ve got efforts reaching out to black voters in Mississippi who want to vote for Thad because they like what Thad is for,” Cochran campaign advisor Austin Barbour told the Times. “Thad Cochran is someone who, even with his conservative message, represents all of Mississippi. He’s not some hostile screamer.”

The winner on Tuesday will face Democrat Travis Childers in November.
