BOBBEE BEE: NATIVE SON

NATIVE SON

In the age of Black Lives Matter, where we have witnessed the death of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, and little Tamir Rice, HBO decided to retell Richard Wright's classic 1940 novel Native Son, which tells the story of 20-year-old Bigger Thomas, who dreams of a life beyond his impoverished Chicago neighborhood after entering into a seductive new world of money and power.

This new HBO adaptation of Wright's work from director Rashid Johnson and playwright Suzan-Lori Parks re-airs on June 4th, Tuesday night at 8:15 PM.

I encourage everyone, who decides to watch this film, however, to please read Dr.Tommy J. Curry's book: The Man-Not:Race, Class, Genre, and The Dilemmas of Black Manhood in order to get a better philosophical understanding of the image of Black Masculinity, which is depicted in the film.

BOBBEE BEE: The MASSARCE OF THE INNOCENTS

The MASSARCE OF THE INNOCENTS

 by eric d. graham

While debating issues about abortion, arguing about the relevance of the #MeToo Movement and fighting over terms like Toxic Masculinity, we continue to WITNESS the murder of innocent Black men by the hands of the government, police officers, white vigilantes, and white supremacist, which sometimes comes in the form of character assassination-by the way of images of blackface wore by Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam in an old yearbook, the pushing of 1994 Crime Bill by Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden, the banning of the Honorable Louis Farrakhan from Facebook along with the recent sealed FBI audio tapes alleging Martin Luther King Jr. had affairs with 40 women, while watching a friend rape another... .

All of these incidents and ideas of discussion, create an atmosphere, where murder can be justified-regardless if the person is innocent.

Professor of Philosophy and Africana Studies at Texas A&M University, Tommy J. Curry, in his book entitled The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and The Dilemmas of Black Man address these conflicting issues and their relationship to Black Male Masculinity in America.

"What does it MEAN to think of the Black Male-to pull the meaning of his existence away from his body to be used by thought? How possible is it for him to be thought of, studied, or engaged beyond the historical caricaturization(s) that relegate him to the Macho, the criminal, the liar, the rapist, the murderer, the thug, the deadbeat father, the abuser, the misogynnist, the beast, the beast cub, the super-predator, or the devil? Is he nothing more than an unactualized (hu)man, a fatally flawed thing, struggling not against the murderous logics that rationalize his death but against the savageness assigned to him that continues to justify treating him as a nonhuman entity?

The Black male is unthought. He is an intuitive problem, an analytic falling designated by the negative ascription of Blackness and maleness. He is being who is described and defined by his menace, with little need to be understood as a living and complex human being subject to external and environmental forces and vulnerable to the mental anguish or depression of his death, imprisonment, and abuse within the present order of American society."-

With that said, this criminalization and constant murder, or justified homicide of the Black male body is an every present narrative, on the nightly news, the daily papers, Hollywood movies, and historical myths, which appear and reappear in the sub-conscious mind, and psyche of individuals, who, sometimes, tragically, live out- these dramatize stories into the real world, making them a bloody reality..."

We see evidence of these stories in the Bible, in the story of Joseph "The Prince of Egypt, where in Exodus 1;15-16, it is stated that:... the king of Egypt told the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, “When you help the Hebrew women in childbirth, look at the child when you deliver it. If it’s a boy, kill it, but if it’s a girl, let it live.”

This story, of course, reappears in the so-called new Testament as well, in Matthew 2:16, which states: "Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under...

Therefore, be mindful and conscious of your daily surroundings, preparing and protecting your children with wisdom and understanding during these troubling times, as the world debates abortion, the school to prison pipeline, guns in school, and even reparation.(bobbeethehater.blogspot.com)

BOBBEE BEE: FATHER'S DAY MESSAGE

LATE AFTERNOON SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON

Many parents make the mistake of always telling a child when he or she is wrong, rather than taking the time to tell them how to get right, and stay right. Biblical correction involves both. The number one extra-biblical Beatitude for all parents is: Blessed are the balanced."

When you police a child but never play with them, you're out of balance. Note carefully what King (Sol-om-on) wrote: "Correct your son, and he will give you rest; ...yes, he will give delight to your soul."

The word correct means to chastise to reprove, or to force back to the right way. Always remember that discipline is like a two-edge sword; it's not only to correct children when they're wrong; but to direct them to a way that's right. And you'll get better results from positive reinforcement than you will from negative reinforcement. Understand this: It's not your job to make your child happy; it's your job to nurture them into maturity. When you do that, their happiness is "guaranteed."

So you may as well quit trying to win a popularity contest with your child. They may always love you, but there are times when they definitely won't like you! Don't be discouraged.

"This too shall pass." Just keep administering the right mixture of nurture and discipline, and eventually they'll grow to like you again. More importantly, when they grow up, get married, and have children of their own, they'll have a role model and a plane for success. (Source: Word For Today) (bobbeethehater.blogspot.com)

BOBBEE BEE: THE RE-VIVAL: FROM THE BOWELS OF HELL

THE RE-VIVAL: FROM THE BOWELS OF HELL

The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad said the so-called Black man has over 76 Trillion years of History. So, I finally made it to The National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C, where I had an opportunity to observe just a small portion of this vast history in the "Hells of North America.

The 400,000-square-foot Smithsonian Institution museum is an interactive historical journey from the 'bowels of hell" ...from the bottom of slave ships, to the auction blocks, from the cotton fields to so-called Freedom. 


Everyone should take this pilgrimage to DC as I did. Matter of fact, this trip to The National Museum of African American History and Culture should be a mandatory duty that must be performed,at least once, by all adults and children, who are physically and financially capable of undertaking the long climb up the "so-called Stairway to Heaven" just like the Muslim's religious trek to Mecca.

BOBBEE BEE:WAR IS A RACKET

WAR IS A RACKET
by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC.

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.
I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.
I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket. There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” to point out enemies, its “muscle men” to destroy enemies, its “brain men” to plan war preparations, and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.
It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

BOBBEE BEE: BABYLON IS FALLING: NORTE DAME ON FIRE

"Notre Dame of Paris in flames. Emotion for a whole nation. Thoughts for all Catholics and for all French. Like all our countrymen, I'm sad tonight to see this part of us burn," -French President Emmanuel Macron

BABYLON IS FALLING: NORTE DAME ON FIRE
By eric d. graham

As the world celebrates the so-called Easter Holiday, with chocolate Easter Bunnies, pink suits, flowery dresses, and white images of Jesus Christ, was it divine intervention on April 15, WHEN we witnessed the magnificent 12th century Gothic architecture known as the Lady of Paris, the Norte Dame Cathedral burning in flames. Especially, with the avalanche of child sexual abuse accusations from Australian country towns to schools in Ireland and cities across the US, which have occurred in the last decade in the Catholic Church?

With the massive flames of yellow and brown smoke pluming from the 850 year old structure along the Seine River, some people cried, while others, seemingly, cheered.

Yes, truly, this tragic event presented two conflicting views, which criss-crossed each other’s path, days for before the alleged crucifixion of the “Son of God.”

Because, one-side saw- a House of Hollies, which claimed to house several revered religious artifacts, including the crown of thorns purportedly worn by Jesus as he was crucified going up in flames. While others, saw it as a House of Horrors, whose lies, fraudulent images of the Virgin Mary and Christ, along with its satanic practices, which led to enslavement of Africans, burning in the Hells of history.

Yes. We were all witnessing the fall of Babylon.

But, many people didn’t think this horrific event was an isolated one. Because, a dozen Catholic churches had been desecrated across France over the period of a week in egregious cases of anti-Christian vandalism, including excrement being spread across walls of churches, defacing the alleged faces of Christ and even, an arsonist attempt to burn down Saint Sulpice, one of Paris’ largest and important churches before the event surrounding Norte Dame.

On Fox News, Philippe Karsenty, a French elected official, who called the fire, France’s 9/11, tried to imply, along with many other Europeans-that the burning of Norte Dame could have been a terrorist attack by Islamic Jihadist, citing a foiled terror-plot in 2016, which involved three women, one named Ines Madani, who planned to blow up a car packed with gas canisters near the ancient Cathedral.

While, this theory, was quickly dismissed, everyone knows- no good crisis goes to waste.

Why? Because, out of chaos; comes order. Therefore, many believe this fire is just another false flag, government orchestrated event, which could be blamed on the Yellow Vest Protesters, a populist, grassroots political movement, which began in France in November 2018, who have protested in the streets for the 22nd consecutive Saturday, demanding lower fuel taxes, a reintroduction of the solidarity tax on wealth, a minimum-wage increase, the implementation of Citizens' initiative referendums, and the resignations of Emmanuel Macron, President of France, and his government.

BOBBEE BEE:EASTER SUNDAY: SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON (LISTEN CLOSELY)

EASTER SUNDAY: SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON (LISTEN CLOSELY)
by eric d.graham
We are witnessing "spiritual terrorism."
...
Whether, it comes from the hands of white supremacist Dylann Storm Roof, who murdered nine innocent people in a Charleston, South Carolina church in 2015. Or, at the hands of, Holden Matthews, the 21 year old son of a deputy sheriff, who was accused of setting fire to three historical Black churches in St.Landry Parish in Louisiana last week.

Yes, this is a form of "spiritual terrorism." No, different than the burning of Norte Dame in Paris
But, if we, as Black people, know our history- we can't be surprised. Not even with, with the recent terrorist attack at a Sri Lanka church, which 207 people have been killed and 450 injured by an alleged suicide bomber.

Why? Because, we, as a people, have experienced a history of terrorism, at the hands of our wicked oppressors, who have used religion and the Bible to enslave us, right here in the Hells of North America.

No, we can't be surprised. For, we have encountered "spiritual terrorism, through the night-rides of the KKK, who burned crosses in our yards, lynched us from trees, bombed our churches, kidnapped our children, raped our women, terrorized our communities, and killed our prophets.
Yes. We, as Black people, are familiar with this term known as "spiritual terrorism." For, it is deeply-rooted in the creation of what today is called America.

Whether, it was the CIA, FBI, through it's Co-IntelPro, who feared the Rise of Black Messiah, we know about "spiritual terrorism."

So, on the so-called Resurrection Sunday, we must also deal with the "spiritual terrorism" that is burning in some of our hearts, in some of our minds, in some of our homes and in some of our churches, which is hanging on the wall in the form of "White Jesus."
For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he: (Prov 23:7)

Therefore, this satanic image must come down. And, be burned from our collective memory banks like the pictures, and false idols, which adorned the Norte Dame Cathedral in Paris.
Because, from a Black Liberation Theology perspective, according to Galatians 1:6-7, the scripture says, Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ....

So, don't be afraid. It's just a SIGN OF THE TIMES.......(bobbeethehater.blogspot.com)

BOBBEE BEE: MY EGGS ARE SCRAMBLED: IS IT GOOD WEDNESDAY OR GOOD FRIDAY?

MY EGGS ARE SCRAMBLED: IS IT GOOD WEDNESDAY OR GOOD FRIDAY?
By eric d. graham

On the day, they call Easter, which have been changed to Resurrection Day over the past couple of years, the question remains, was there really a crucifixion? Or, was it- a cruci-fiction?
Now, for those, who study Astro-theology, I understand, you may know a few ancient symbols about the spring equinox, which may reveal the hidden science behind this so-called Holy-Day. But, for those, who are still trapped in the Western-worldview of Christianity, who haven’t been expose to teachers like Ashra Kwesi, we still have to ask this question. Is this a hoax, like the one allegedly plotted by Jussie Smollett or is it a historical event?

Before you go any further, at this point of my academic growth, I am not trying to change anyone’s belief system or faith, do as you please. But, from a scholastic point view, I always seek moments to teach, expose, and explore taboo topics. Especially, to those, who are looking for answers in all the wrong places. In the book called The Choice (Islam & Christianity) Volume Two by Ahmed Deedat, a founding member of the Islamic Progation Centre International, he debates this topic of the crucifixion-along with other Christian dogmatic beliefs and scriptures.

With that said, why is it called Good Friday?


In Deedat’s book, in a chapter, simply called Simple Calculation, he asks if Jesus was placed in a tomb at sunset on Friday, where he was supposedly to be in the tomb on Saturday and resurrected on Sun-Day, where does the three day resurrection belief system come from?
This is a simple mathematics- ladies and gentlemen.

Why? Because, the grand total, regardless of how you add it up, equals to no more than one day and two nights, juggle it as you may. But, you will never get three days and three nights as –the biblical character Jesus had himself foretold, according to the Scriptures. Especially, if you celebrate Good Friday….

Ok.

According to Deedat, this is why new cults like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the 7th Day Adventists, the Christian Scientists, the Mormons, were introduced to the new doctrine of Good Wednesday by Mr. Robert Fahey, from the The Plain Truth Magazine, which tried to solve this three day Resurrection story by suggesting to believers to count backwards from the time (Jesus) was allegedly discovered to be missing from the tomb on SUN-DAY MORNING (the first day of the week) when Mary Magdalene went to anoint him.

See, if we deduct 3 days, and 3 nights from Sunday morning, we ought to get Wednesday as an answer.

Yes. This topic is up for discussion and debate along with the Norte Dame Cathedral claims of possessing the Crown of Throne, which were allegedly worn by Jesus, as well as fragment of the cross, he hung from and a portion of the nail that pierced his body.

Lord Have Mercy, the lies the Catholic Church will tell to deceive the world and remain in power.
With that said, as the scripture suggest “Study to shew thyself approved.” Besides, I don’t like boiled eggs. I like my eggs scrabbled in the morning….Or, maybe, sunny-side up. Or, sunny-side over.
Ok, now, I am really confused. (bobbeethehater.blogspot.com)

BOBBEE BEE: STRUGGLE AGAINST FAKE NEWS

by Danny Haiphong

The Mueller Report’s conclusion cannot reverse the damage that has been done to left journalism and activism by the fake news witch hunt.
Fake news is the creature of a desperate ruling class that no longer has any tolerance for truth. Ever since Trump was used as a “Pied Piper” to aid Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign effort, the Democratic Party and its allies in the corporate media and U.S. intelligence apparatus have lamented the dangers of “fake news” in an effort rid the internet of any deviations from their official narrative. The story goes that Russia helped Trump win the White House by giving WikiLeaks incriminating DNC emails which irreparably harmed the Clinton campaign. And just as WikiLeaks and Russia have been criminalized by lies that implicate them in colluding to tell the truth, we writers and journalists on the left have been criminalized as “dupes” of Russia. The Mueller Report’s conclusion that the Trump-Russia story was a farce from the beginning cannot reverse the damage that has been done to left journalism and activism by the fake news witch hunt.
Left journalists and activists were first targeted by a shady online organization called Washington Postshortly after the November 2016 election. This anonymous website labeled Black Agenda Report and other left websites as agents of the Kremlin. The U.S. intelligence apparatus released report after report that blamed Russia Today (RT) and Russian media generally for creating divisions in the U.S., mainly through their coverage of Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street protests. So-called “Alt-right forces” were equated with so-called “Alt-left forces”—a euphemism for left of the Democratic Party. RT, Sputnik, and others were then forced to register as agents of a foreign government. Social media and Silicon Valley monopolies changed their algorithms to suppress any content that challenged the many myths of American exceptionalism.  The NATO-owned Atlantic Council and neocon-sponsored NewsGuard corporation got in on the mix and is working to ensure that the war on “fake news” eventually reaches every single channel of electronic communication possible, including the software of the computers that we purchase.“
PropOrNot,” which was covered by the CIA and Jeff Bezos’
Black Agenda Report has felt the consequences of the U.S. Empire’s so-called war on “fake news.” So have outlets that express solidarity with Venezuela such as Telesur and Venezuelanalysis.Each have repeatedly seen their Facebook and social media accounts removed. Over 2,000 social media accounts sympathetic to Venezuela’s Bolivarian government were removed in February. Our struggle against “fake news” is thus international in scope and fundamentally different than the one being waged by our enemies in the ruling elite. 

This struggle must answer the calls to action being sounded by the most urgent questions of our period. The U.S. establishment has identified the struggle to defend the self-determination of peoples and nations around the world as the most dangerous question of all. Venezuela has been subject to ruthless bipartisan lies to vilify the Bolivarian project. Washington and its corporate media servants have portrayed the Venezuelan people as starved subjects of a ruthless Third World dictator who wields absolute power over them. We have heard this before. When Republican Senator Marco Rubio jovially posted on Twitter an image of the maimed corpse of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, he revealed the main objective of the U.S. for Venezuela: to overthrow its democratically-elected government in the same manner as Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and countless other nations which have been subject to U.S. imperial terrorism. When we discuss Venezuela, our first call to action is to unearth the lies that give ideological cover to the war mongers in the White House and corporate media.

BOBBEE BEE:JESSE HELMS: THE HELM OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY


My legacy will be up to others to describe”-Senator Jesse Helm
JESSE HELMS: THE HELM OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
by eric d. graham
The scripture say “There is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecc. 1:9) So, we shouldn’t be surprised, with all the plantation politics and racial rhetoric surrounding Donald Trump in this toxic political climate, currently polluting the airwaves and on the Internet.
Besides, in a state like North Carolina, where its Tar Heel version of Mount Rushmore, would probably bare the faces of: UNC’s legendary coach Dean Smith, Evangelist Billy Graham, former NASCAR driver Richard Petty and controversial, conservative, Republican Senator Jesse Helms, who ran a now-notorious ad that had a pair of white hands crumple up a job rejection letter with a voice over saying, “You needed that job, and you were the best qualified. But they had to give it to a minority because of a racial quota” to defeat former Charlotte Mayor Harvey Gantt, who is Black," in 1990 and 1996.
Oh yeah, good Ole Uncle Jesse, (sorry Dukes of Hazard fans) had a history of racist “southern tactics” to get them “GOOD OLE BOYS ELECTED.” Consider the infamous racist “WHITE PEOPLE WAKE UP” campaign flyer for Willis Smith’s 1950 Senate campaign against Frank Graham, which asked the “good folks” of North Carolina if they favored the “mingling of the races” over the old tradition of the South that, a young Helms allegedly participated in promoting.
But, he, couldn’t help it. It was his nature. For, he was only living out the essence of the segregated southern community of Monroe, NC that gave birth to him and his future political ideology, which had him defending the status quo, opposing Brown V. Board of Education’s attempt to desegregate schools and railing against the Martin Luther King Holiday by saying the slain civil rights leader was a Communist.
See, according to Timothy Tyson’s biography of civil rights leader Robert Williams, entitled Radio Free Dixie: Robert F. Williams and the Roots of Black Power, he (Williams) grew up in Monroe at the same time as Helms’ father, who was known for abusing his power and authority as a police officer. Especially, against the town’s African-American population.
Sadly, the more things change; the more they stay the same. Because, Black people are still suffering at the hands, and in some cases, the guns of the police, which politicians still use to justify their Law & Order rhetoric, during an election cycle. With this knowledge, consider the time in history, while reading an interview with Senator Helms from a March 8, 1974. He sounds, like he is on Fox News, discussing Donald Trump instead of ardent segregationist, former Alabama Governor, George Wallace.
“Well, I think that Governor Wallace is a symbol to a vast number of people in our state. I don't necessarily say that they're conservatives or moderates or liberals. I simply say that they are frustrated, because what they want, in my judgment, is somebody who will tell . . . who will level with them. Whether they agree with him or not. But who will tell them what he thinks and what he will do, and then do it. And George Wallace comes through as a man of that image. I'm sure that a lot of people who don't fully agree with George Wallace voted for him, simply because they felt that they could rely on his word...."
Unfortunately, some of us are probably too young or maybe have simply forgotten how powerful Jesse Helms, a former sports reporter for the Raleigh’s News & Observer and political commentator on WRAL-TV, was to the culture of southern politics. For those, who want to learn more about Jesse, I encourage you to read the entire article entitled How Jesse Helms Invented the Republican Party composed by the SplinterNews to get a true picture of the man, the myth, and the politician.
I know, none of this stuff appeared in our history books. But, for those, who can recall, Helms, who attended Wingate University and Wake Forest University, was the Republican Party's nomination for Vice President in 1976 for then-Republican presidential candidate Gerald Ford alongside with Bob Dole and Ronald Reagan, which Dole got Ford’s nomination, after he withdrew his name.
Helms’ name was thrown back into the political limelight again, four year later, in the 1980 presidential election in order to be the VP to Reagan, who decided to select former Director of the CIA George Bush instead after he withdrew his name for a second-time.
Yes, Jesse Helms, who served 30 years in the U.S Senate had a lot of power and influence, not only locally but internationally..And, if he truly desired it, could have been a presidential candidate. Despite him being a racist, he was still an iconic figure in the state of North Carolina and known as the Voice of Conservatism, due to his support of school prayer and the death penalty, as well as, his opposition to abortion, homosexuality, welfare and gun control.

Now, this is where the story gets interesting. Because, while we are still debating Zionism and the AIPAC’s influence on American politics, Jesse Helms, surprisingly, as a freshman senator in 1973, was the most outspoken critic of the Jewish State of Israel. He even proposed a resolution demanding that Israel return the West Bank to Jordan and opposed economic and military aid to Israel. 
Helms, however, according to The North Carolina Historical Review article entitled Reversing Gears: Jesse Helm’s Embrace of Christian Zionism, would eventually put on a yarmulke, take a trip to Israel, changing his thoughts about AIPAC, due to fundraising concerns during and after the 1984 Senate campaign, when he ran against Democratic governor James B. Hunt Jr., who accepted between $2 million and $3 million in total contributions from the pro-Israel Jewish community, while soliciting donations by warning that Helms was “building this massive war chest to fight “against things you and I care about….like the security and survival of Israel.”
Wait a minute. None Dare Call It Conspiracy. But, was the stone-cold conservative Jesse Helms, who was considered “anti-Semitic and anti-Israel” paid off by AIPAC in order to get reelected?
Now, to be fair to the Senator, he had connected with the Moral Majority and the Christian Right, which was founded by televangelist Jerry Falwell, who became an active Christian Zionist after Israel’s victory in the 1967 war.
But, I find it disturbing, that Helms would do a total 360, flip-flopping on his former statements and become a lukewarm politician toward Israel. He, even, advocated for the relocation of the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. (Sound, familiar)

“When it comes to standing up for principles that deserve to survive….Helms told a Northside Baptist Church in October 6, 1985."....we too often use our reverse gears”
We, however, see evidence of this playing out in the current political arena as politicians still fear speaking out against Israel. Even, Donald Trump fears this retribution. Despite, once twitting “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize…”
While, Jerry Falwell, is no longer the face of the Moral Morality and Christian Zionism, the 700 Club’s aging Pat Robeson, with their 24 hour propaganda programming, have picked up the mantle along with Pastor John Hagee and Vice President Mike Pence.
And, unbelievably, Jesse Helms, who died on the Fourth of July in 2008, at 86 years old, on the same day of the Declaration of Independence and the same day that Thomas Jefferson and John Adams died, along with his white middle-class, Evangelist voters were a part of this complicated political cabal.

BOBBEE BEE: WILL FORMER KLANSMAN DAVID DUKE RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020?

WILL FORMER KLANSMAN DAVID DUKE RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2020?
By eric d. graham
In this hostile political environment, with the election of Donald Trump in 2016, racism, seemingly, has gotten a face-lift.
While White Supremacy has been injected with a dose of steroids and a bit of roid rage, where white revenge fantasy and vigilante (Injustice), which was implied by actor Liam Neeson during an interview promoting his film “Cold Pursuit, “-has gone on a killing spree, randomly murdering innocent men, women, and children at churches (in Charleston, SC with Dylann Roof in 2015) in synagogues (in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by the hands of Robert D. Bowers in 2018) and at the mosque (in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2019)
With such poisonous venom being spread throughout the land, where police terrorism, racism, xenophobia, and “anti-Semitism “have increased along with the recent burning of three historically Black churches in one south Louisiana parish in the last two weeks, could former Republican Louisiana State Representative David Duke be the perfect political candidate in 2020?
As crazy as it may seem, with the #ADOS movement demanding reparations for the atrocities of slavery, Minnesota Congresswoman Rep. Ilhan Omar igniting debate over Israel's influence in American politics and movie director Spike Lee winning an Oscar for the film BlacKkKlansman, which subliminally suggested that a former Klansmen could actually win the presidency, anything is possible.
Seriously, with all the “blackface” politicians being exposed and the hidden racial hatred in the hearts of so many people pouring out on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter-why wouldn’t “white bread” America vote for David Duke, who according to him, gained 60% of the white vote while running for governor of Louisiana and the U.S.Senate.

Historically, Duke, a former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klutz Klan, who ran as a Democratic presidential candidate in the 1988 primaries and as a Republican in the 1992 presidential primaries, although the Republican party officials tried to block his participation, is no worse than any other presidential candidate, including Washington or Jefferson, who both owned slaves during their election. So, having him a part of the 2020 presidential lineup, wouldn't be shocking.
Let’s not forget, Trump’s own presidential campaign in 2016, which was crafted by his former chief strategist Steve Bannon, as well as the slogan “Build That Wall” allegedly came from David Duke, are all part of the White Nationalist platform.
What is that White Nationalist platform that Trump and Duke have in common, you ask?
Well, they both, politically, fear “white” ethnic cleansing, where Confederate statues are being toppled and “white” history is allegedly systematically being erased from the public sphere along with the apocalyptic view of Islamic Sharia Law taking over the land, as well as, a mass invasion of illegal immigrants crossing the Mexican border, who offer nothing but crime, drugs, and destruction to the “so-called”American way of life.
Unfortunately, with no wall yet to be built along the border and a continuous support for Israel, which came when he moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, many of Trump’s MAGA red hat wearing supporters feel he has reneged on his political promises of securing the border and providing jobs for a dwindling middle class.
This level of disloyalty from 45, oddly, has created an opening for Duke, who has “hung” up his KKK hood and replaced it with a tight-khaki shirt, while appearing unrecognizable to some due to his plastic surgery, which has him looking like the comedian carrot top with his well-shaped arms and a new “non”-violent political approach, despite the horrible incident that occurred at Charlottesville.)
Keep in mind, the professor of history, despite his unpopularity, is a seasoned politician, who is very crafty with his words, unlike Trump. See, while Trump pretends to be against Goldman Sachs, Dr.Duke really is.
Shockingly, while Duke’s overall view on international bankers, the Federal Reserve, Zionism, “fake-news,” the explosion of the Hollyweird "Gay agenda" and the Israel Lobby, is prevented from appearing on mainstream media, it has a large following on alternative news sites and the underground media, which Trump and Bannon utilized to defeat the Clinton Dynasty in 2016, which left Hillary devastated and "The Donald" surprised.
In a recent interview, Duke said, “Democracy is a lie in this country. It is an Oligarchy of Tyrants….It is not a fair system.”
By definition, an oligarchy is a system of government ruled by the few, especially despotic power exercised by a small and privileged group for corrupt or selfish purposes. ...
While that statement may seem strange, according to Abigail Abram, of Time Magazine, Donald Trump, in 2016, nominated the richest cabinet and inner circle in modern U.S. History, which had a net worth of $4.5 billion.
That’s right $4.5 billion.
Here is a short list of Trump’s historic billion dollar cabinet:


Betsy DeVos (Secretary of Education)-$579 Million, Jared Kushner (Senior adviser to the president for strategic planning) $241 million, Wilbur L. Ross (Secretary of Commerce) $326 million, Gary D.

While Trump has publicly rejected Duke and other white supremacists, with so much money being raised in order to run an affected political campaign, could we have a former Klansmen in the White House?

BOBBEE BEE: PERFORMANCE POLITICS: THE BACHELOR, THE BOOKER, & THE DANCER

PERFORMANCE POLITICS: THE BACHELOR, THE BOOKER, & THE DANCER
by eric d.graham
(Action)
 Is LGBT activist and comedian Ellen DeGeneres the NEW kingmaker, where politicians go to dance and boogie, before bowing down and kissing her ring, while confessing their allegiance to the "white" LBGT community?
Unfortunately, it seems, as if, it is true. Because, while comedian Kevin Hart refused "the new-Oprah's "advise surrounding this year's Oscars , 2020 presidential candidate, junior United States Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, 49, painfully two-stepped his way "Obama-style" to music along side the slender talk show host before sitting down and announcing he had a girlfriend- in actress-Rosario Dawson, who just (conveniently) shared the news with TMZ on Thursday when leaving a Washington, D.C. airport.
Ellen, satirically, even, urged the 36th Mayor of Newark,as if, it was an episode of ABC's The Bachelor, to get married in the White House so America could have a “royal wedding" similar to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Laughably, the female comedian promised to be a “big part of it,” -(the wedding) if Booker decided to say "I do" during or after the election.
And, while, Booker put on his best political performance face in order to gain white female votes by being soft-spoken , non-threatening and "kind", he promised Ellen that .." there will be gender diversity on the ticket."
Remember, this is the same Cory Booker, who played hot scotch and double-dutch while trying to avoid questions about Reparation on the Breakfast Club just a month ago.
This-my friend- was a classic example of performance politics at its finest. 

BOBBEE BEE:$150,000 Reason College Athletes Should Get Paid

$150,000 Reason College Athletes Should Get Paid
by eric d.graham
Did you know (contractually) that UNC's coach Roy Williams will receive a $150,000 bonus for advancing to the Sweet 16?
Oh yes, Williams has already made $145,148 in bonuses for making the NCAA tournament and advancing to the second round, according to the Raleigh News & Observer.
But, how much do the players get? There is no need to play that Alex Trebek Jeopardy-theme music. You know the answer....ZERO!!!
I know...this is an old debate. But, while #ADOS is forcing all presidential candidates to address the issue of Reparations, which means making of amends for a wrong one has done, by paying money to help those who have been wronged, we must force the NCAA to address the issue of athletes getting paid. Especially, during March Madness.
Yes, all athletes should be saying, "Cut the Check..."
Consider these "incredible" facts, before you defend the NCAA and your favorite team.
If UNC wins over Alabama, Williams receives a $200,000 bonus. And, a trip to the Final Four, means he gets to cash-in another check worth $200,000. Plus, he gets another additional check for $250,000 if he wins the national championship.
So, in total, if the Tar Heels advance to the national championship game and win, he could walk away with a hefty bag worth $650,000.
Think about that!!!! Especially, if you see your favorite coach dancing and gyrating, while cutting down those nets.
I guess..that's why they call it March Madness!!!! (fouls & fumbles with Patrick Williams and E.Graham) (bobbeethehater.blogspot.com) (BASN-Newsroom)Michael-louis Ingram

BOBBEE BEE: Politics of Corruption: Taking a closer look a college sports

Politics of Corruption: Taking a closer look a college sports


By
Updated: June 22, 2014


With the recent scandal involving Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel and the current scandal involving UNC’s Rashard McCants, we, at BlackAthlete.com, felt it was necessary to re-publish this excellent article, especially after NCAA President Mark Emmert was cross-examined for the O’Bannon v. NCAA case on Thursday.
NORTH CAROLINA–(BASN)”In life, never forget the golden rule. Those with the gold make the rules.” The government of the United States should investigate the BCS and the NCAA like it was the MOB.
It should infiltrate it as if it was a Mega Church full of prosperity pimps or a drug cartel.
Why? Because according to certain reports, a university like THE OHIO STATE can make millions of dollars a year while an athlete, like Terrelle Pryor “shamefully” makes $40,000 from signing his autograph on a few sports items, is criminalized and vilified.
While pondering that scenario, one must conclude that the NCAA is a bunch of white collar criminals.
They are, in fact, no different from these corporate CEOs, who make millions of dollars off of cheap labor in “so-called” third world countries. But for some odd reason, the media focuses its attention on punishing those, who commit blue collar “crimes.”payme
The Blame Game
Therefore, they accuse Reggie Bush rather than USC for the problem.
They blame Cam Newton instead of Mississippi State for the problem.
They punish Terrelle Pryor instead of Ohio State for the problem.
As a result, in the end, they bailout the universities instead of the players like President Obama bailed out the bankers on Wall Street. This is similar to the War on Drugs in the USA, where they lock up petty street hustlers or the small time drug users instead of arresting the big-time drug kingpins.
Former Ohio State (RB) Maurice Clarett confirmed this recently on the Dan Patrick Show when he said, “It’s not a Terrelle Pryor problem. It’s not a Jim Tressel problem, it’s a culture….” ‘
Clarett was correct.
The problem begins and ends with a culture that has been corrupt from the top down, and not from the bottom up.
A System of Pimps and Hoes
To be brutally honest, college athletics is a system of pimps and hoes.
To prove this point, recently South Carolina Gamecocks football head coach Steve Spurrier offered a payment proposal, where the coaches would pay the players $300 a game out of their own pockets.
But many sports analysts felt that Spurrier’s proposal to pay players was simply a clever recruiting tool for South Carolina and the SEC. “A bunch of us coaches felt so strongly about it that we would be willing to pay it–70 guys 300 bucks a game.”
“This is only $21,000 a game. I doubt it will get passed, but as coaches in the SEC, we make all the money, as do universities, and television. And we need to get more to our players….” said Spurrier, who makes $2.5 million a year not including other bonuses.
If this ain’t a pimp-move, I don’t know what is. The Fear of Socialism in Sports Spurrier’s proposal to pay players, in effect, had a few shrewd capitalists feeling as if he was practicing some weird form of Socialism.
But did Spurrier really want to “share the wealth” like President Obama suggested during his 2008 campaign? According to NCAA President Mark Emmert, Spurrier’s payment proposal would destroy the “sacredness” of college athletics.
“I think paying players by game doesn’t make any sense to me at all.” Emmert said.
“Are you going to pay them for every game they go to, are you going to pay them for women’s volleyball, and why $300, why not $600, why not $1000. If you are just paying them for a game why not $3,000?” he scolded. “Where do you set that number and why do you set that number? That’s converting student-athletes into employees and I’m adamantly opposed to that and I think that would be the death of intercollegiate athletics.” millions
Despite Emmert’s disapproval of paying college athletes, he can’t deny the fact that college sports is a big business.
College athletics is a Big Business.
How big a business is it?
According to the dailybeast.com, during the 20 day basketball extravaganza known as March Madness, the NCAA makes $185 million on corporate sponsorships plus $300 million off of NCAA merchadise sales, while $770 million is spend on TV license fees, $613.8 million on television advertisement, and $7.5 million on beer sells.
Seeing those numbers, there is no question, college athletics is a big business.
And to understand the game, just like politics, one must follow the money.
Politics of Corruption
ccaWhy? Because there is a Politics of Corruption running college sports.
What do I mean by a politics of corruption? When you look at the word politics, the first part of the word “poli” which means many.
And the last part of the word is tics, which means a bloodsucker.
Therefore, by definition the term politics means “many bloodsuckers.”
And without a doubt, we all have to agree that the NCAA is sucking the life force of these young college athletes by collecting billions of dollars annually off of their blood, sweat, and tears.
Even though we know that this form of economic exploitation is wrong, the philosophy of college sports of see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil protects this evil empire.
Football Rules million
Why? Because there is a code of silence that governs the game.
For instance, you know the old saying, What happens in Vegas; Stays in Vegas.
Well, that phrase is a little different in college sports.
The motto for many universities: is football rules or basketball rules.
Therefore, there are no rules.
Why? Because, football is the cash cow.
And you are not going to kill the holy cow, if it is worshipped and viewed as being sacred by the people in order to feed a few hungry athletes hamburgers for dinner. But this golden calf must be destroyed just like Moses, the Lawgiver, did in the Bible….
In other words, there must be some new laws or commandments to govern this growing entity.
caspA system driven by greed.
According to Jesse Jackson, of the Rainbow Push Coalition, Capitalism only works if they are checks and balances.
Well, if it is true for Capitalism, it is true for the NCAA.
But this will be a difficult task, because greed drives both of these institutions.
And in a world, where we worship the rich and despise the poor, the rich will always get richer.
Not surprisingly, the NCAA is a microcosm of the macrocosm.
In other words, it is a capitalistic system based off of exploitation, where profit over the people is the law of the land.
Or should I say, profit over the players is the law of the field or the court.
But now this capitalistic system is slowly collapsing, as more universities are being investigated.
And with each investigation, more scandals are surfacing.
Why? Because the NCAA is not a democracy.
It is not governed of, for, and by the people or the players.
It is a plutocracy.
Rich getting richer pluto
A plutocracy means ruled for the rich by the rich.
And a plutocracy’s only purpose is to protect the wealth of the rich.
Therefore, the biggest threat to a plutocracy is for the peasants or the players to revolt against the system.
The sense of rebellion can be seen with the new “one and done” phenomenon occurring in college basketball. But let’s remember the famous words of Frederick Douglas, who said “Power concedes nothing without demand Therefore, maybe all college athletes should unite, organize and boycott the NCAA and create and articulate a list of demands.
This type of athletic alliance could spark a revolution in college sports like none other and potentially change the way the game is played.
If this happens, then, and only then, will the ball truly be in the hands of the players.
If this doesn’t happen, college athletes will continue to be exploited while the rich get richer and richer.
