Tuesday Open Thread | We Are Americans

For all the talk about going back to Africa…
We are Americans.
I had a discussion with an international student during graduate school, about the way we were treated in this country. She was like, ‘why don’t you just move?’
I was like, ‘ why should I move? My ancestors built this country.’ And, as I replied to her, I felt it in my bones. We have been here almost a half a millenia. This is our home. You fight for your home.
And, the thought that you would take mofos over to Africa to ‘train them’…Phuck Outta Here.

After 2016, we are on alert in social media. We are already calling out those that would try and bring the bullshyt for 2020. Unlike others, we aren’t about following the shiny objects, so they are about Voter Suppression.
Pan-African State in the South? What kind of foolishness is this? They do not understand us – AT ALL.
They don’t even understand what ‘civil disobedience’ means to us, and the legacy of it in this country. The mess that they discuss down below has no connection whatsoever to us as a community and our history. And, the foolishness that they are talking about would stand out to us as absolutely bogus on every front, or be seen as an FBI COINTELPRO-Type plot. Being able to see through the foolishness, is how we have survived as a people in this country for 400 years.

Russian documents reveal desire to sow racial discord — and violence — in the U.S.
The revelations come as U.S. intelligence agencies have warned of probable Russian meddling in the 2020 election.

May 20, 2019, 5:54 PM CDT
By Richard Engel, Kate Benyon-Tinker and Kennett Werner

LONDON — Russians who were linked to interference in the 2016 U.S. election discussed ambitious plans to stoke unrest and even violence inside the U.S. as recently as 2018, according to documents reviewed by NBC News.
The documents — communications between associates of Yevgeny Prigozhin, a Kremlin-linked oligarch indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller for previous influence operations against the U.S. — laid out a new plot to manipulate and radicalize African Americans. The plans show that Prigozhin’s circle has sought to exploit racial tensions well beyond Russia’s social media and misinformation efforts tied to the 2016 election.

…………………………..

The documents contained proposals for several ways to further exacerbate racial discord in the future, including a suggestion to recruit African Americans and transport them to camps in Africa “for combat prep and training in sabotage.” Those recruits would then be sent back to America to foment violence and work to establish a pan-African state in the South, particularly in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.
There is no indication that the plan — which is light on details — was ever put into action, but it offers a fresh example of the mindset around Russian efforts to sow discord in the U.S.
The blueprint, entitled “Development Strategy of a Pan-African State on U.S. Territory,” floated the idea of enlisting poor, formerly incarcerated African Americans “who have experience in organized crime groups” as well as members of “radical black movements for participation in civil disobedience actions.”
The goal was to “destabilize the internal situation in the U.S.”

 

One of the writers at The Root.Com wrote about this topic:

First of all, how was this race war semester abroad in Africa was supposed to work? Did they think black people were going to trust some oily-haired Russian motherfuckers? After serving years as both an amateur and a professional black person, I can tell you that black people don’t distinguish between Russians and regular, riding-on-the-passenger-side-with-their-bare-foot-hanging-out-of-the-car-window whites. I doubt if some niggas from Compton and Baltimore are going to embark on a trans-Atlantic trip because some guy named Sergei promised AK-47s and liberation. We fell for that one before. You know what they say:
“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, you might catch these hands.”

Yes, this about sums it up for me.

My favorite comment to the article, because it was so much the truth:

KC Complains A Lot

Black people don’t want a race war. We just want to be allowed to live in peace and not be bothered by nosey ass, triflin’ ass white people.

New Wakanda would be a Utopia if only because there would be a few big laws that governed the country.
1.) Mind ya damn business.
2.) Don’t start no shit, won’t be no shit.
3.) Talk shit, get hit.

White folks are the ones constantly going on about starting race wars. And as Michael Harriot points out, THEY ALREADY LOST ONE OF THOSE. How do they think the second one would turn out?

 
WE are Americans. Period.

    If any of my fam has 8 minutes, I’d like to ask you to please watch this short clip..

    I share this because it’s important to remember …to put things in perspective …remind folks the why and the how..

    Why most of our 2020 candidates aren’t catching on.. aren’t connecting, aren’t resonating.. aren’t awaking folks – especially those who need to most, but are resigned to – and scarily, are even buying what the treasonous buffoon and his enablers are peddling..

    This was the candidate’s SPOUSE.. not even the historic candidate himself..

    She was an unknown, no-name, fully black woman and wife campaigning in support of her husband …on the national stage, in a still very racist and hostile country …with no powerful political machine behind her, no renowned family name, no big money, no actual political ‘training’, no expensive staff, no teleprompter, no notes..

    She in 8 minutes captures her audience, encapsulating every pertinent issue before a largely skeptical crowd who didn’t know her from Adam..

    This fam, is the difference.. And this fam, was just the candidate’s wife…

        She absolutely is..

        Authentic, integrity and percipience in spades… has and speaks with utmost conviction.. believable, and she gets it.. understands the issues that affect regular folks and what folks care about the most.. connects, compels.. using her own lived experience to draw the picture clearly, in honest and convincing ways..

        Watch the lady behind her – to your right… you can see her eyes wide in disbelief …she can’t believe that this is just the candidate’s wife..

        And the guy who keeps uh-huh-ing in agreement..

        That is how you know you’re reaching folks..

        That is how you get folks to wake up, to care, to get engaged, to show up and vote..

        All while our complicit media turns a blind eye, aids and abets the normalization and legitimization of the despicable treasonous clown and his criminality and endless atrocities..

        And as goes the United States, so goes the world..

        So now all manner of racist, incurious, ignorant, buffoonish faux-strongmen are springing up all over the world and playing the racist masses for fools while hijacking power, grifting to their heart’s content and lining their pockets and grabbing onto power and sending the world back to the dark ages.,

        And all while folks twiddle their thumbs..

      Who the f*ck is this dude? Another person who pretends to know 100% what older Americans think and believe. I make no bones about rejecting Sanders. His behavior before, during, and after the 2016 election turned me OFF to listening to anything he has to say. He turned millions of Americans against HRC and other Democrats for no d@mn reason other than his ego and his belief that he, like DJT, has all of the answers to all of our problems. I’m an older American, and I’m very concerned about wealth and social inequality and climate change, along with other things like voter suppression, racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, the rising cost of a college education, under-investment in our public education system, or crumbling infrastructure, our growing anti-science movement, misogyny, male lawmakers pretending to be gynecologists and obstetricians—just to name a few, and these do not represent my entire list of concerns.

      They are cooking the books, manipulating job numbers right before our eyes to assuage the treasonous buffoon, even as glaring signs and all else point to troubling economic times …in much the same way the WH doctor, with a straight face, told folks without flinching, that a morbidly obese man was the ‘healthiest person ever’, had ‘perfect genes’, weighed half his actual weight and added inches to his actual height –

      The economy is NOT booming …but somehow, even the media has bought into this glaring lie – and as usual is helping to actively and aggressively push the false narrative.. And prefacing every dialogue – especially re: 2020, with just how ‘great’ the economy is doing..

      Setting up these blatantly and deceptively false narrative …LIES, actually …about a mythical ‘booming economy’… is designed to sell a bloody treasonous buffoon as at least ‘adept’ in what is deemed most important to Americans ..the economy and their wallets.. And inoculate him against any consequences for his brazen criminality..

      So folks are losing their jobs right left and center, businesses are closing, prices of goods are skyrocketing, even the bloody stock market is swinging wildly, but folks are out of work, sitting home unable to pay their bills, and yet being told that life’s never been better..

      And the media as usual, plays right along ..

      It doesn’t matter. Impeachment is impeachment. Trump won’t convict in the Senate because there is a GOP majority.

      It doesn’t remove Trump from office. It is the voice of the people saying that a criminal president will not be tolerated. It closes the door to future criminal candidates.

      Trump suffers consequences or the presidency will forever be open to dishonorable men.

    Your articles are interesting. Actually, there are some good and bad people everywhere. Racism is not acceptable at all, but this is reality that “Mental Disorders” also exist. From 10, if 2 are racists, and 8 are good, then condemn 2 and appreciate 8. Generally people condemn a lot and appreciate less. The Glass is half full also. Actually “Poverty” is the actual problem, and this a global problem now.
    (But if you consider that society is not cooperating with each other then I can understand your feelings also.)
