TWO PIMPS IN A POD

Boy, have whites done hard time under Barack Hussein Obama! To deliver his inauguration benediction, eight accursed years back, Obama commissioned one Rev. Joseph Lowery.

Lowery is to poetry what Beyoncé is to music. Both were greatly elevated by the outgoing, déclassé first couple. Lowery’s anti-white inaugural jingle beseeched the Lord to finally make “white embrace what is right,” allow “brown to stick around,” “yellow to be mellow,” and “the red man to get ahead.”

High art.

Indeed, on day one, Obama and his bitter and twisted better half hammered home that to be white in their America was never to be right. To be black was to have an eternal claim against whites, for no other reason than that they’re white.

Although America is the land of quotas, set-asides and affirmative action—a country that privileges minorities—the majority is, nevertheless, subjected to non-stop, relentless propaganda. Enforced by the tyranny of political correctness, this agitprop has led white Americans, most of whom harbor no racial animus, to believe racism saturates their society. So, whites say nothing when they’re roped into a Sisyphean struggle to appease the unappeasable.

Unappeasable is the job description of Rev. Al Sharpton, with whom Obama had made common cause. (Later, Black Lives Matter stole Sharpton’s thunder.)

With the election of Donald Trump, white America has essentially told these race pimps to talk to the hand (‘cause the face ain’t listening). They’ve had enough of the pigment burden. Besides, as a pragmatist and a doer, Trump is constitutionally indifferent to the racial-grievance industry.

So march Sharpton must.

Ahead of President-elect Trump’s inauguration, Sharpton’s “We Shall Not be Moved March” will take place on January 14. The reverend and his foot soldiers at CNN will meander to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. There, they will say stuff as memorable and meaningful as the ectoplasm that tumbled from Obama’s mouth, during his farewell address.

Let us hope that President-elect Trump “shall not be moved,” and that Al’s presence in the People’s House will be greatly reduced under a Trump administration. For as of June 2016, the White House Visitor Records logged 57 Obama-Sharpton love-ins.

Before he fades to black, in the memorable words of a Metallica ballad, an aspect of Sharpton’s lying persona should be exposed. It has been omitted from the tit-for-tat that goes for debate between Republicans and Democrats. (By which I mean the perennial, “No, Democrats are the real sexists, we love women. No, Democrats are the real racists; we’re the party of Lincoln.”)

BEWARE OF ACADEMIC AFROCENTRISM

When radio and TV talkers play a 1994 Al Sharpton harangue, delivered from Keane College, New Jersey, they typically call Sharpton a homophobe and a racist and leave it at that. They fail to explain the substance of the nonsense with which the reverend riles-up the receptive audience. Roars Sharpton (1.11 minutes in):

ORDER IT NOW

“White folks was [sic] in the caves while we was [sic] building empires. We never admired them, but they knew to admire us. We built pyramids before Donald Trump even knew what architecture was. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.”

The mythistory Sharpton peddles on this tape, frequently played by the heroic Sean Hannity, is called Afrocentrism. It’s promoted by a number of undistinguished African academics and imparted in some schools across North America, from grade school through to the university level, and, naturally, in the African Studies department.

I don’t know how else to break it to you, but the white man stole the black man’s accomplishments. According to the Sharpton abracadabra, Africans have an ineffable claim against Europeans. For how does one put a price on the mugging of a civilization?

The gist of Afrocentric mythistory: The venerable Greeks, the founders of Western Civilization, stole their philosophical and scientific know-how from Egypt. Egypt, and not Greece, is the fount of Western tradition. And although artifacts indicate that the Egyptians were more Benetton than black; by Sharpton’s telling, the Egyptians were actually black Africans.

How did this civilizational mugging occur? Aristotle is said to have sojourned to Egypt with Alexander the Great, smuggled books out of the Alexandrian library, and slapped his name on these books, promoting them as his own. He wasn’t alone. Socrates, Pythagoras and Plato were plagiarizers in their own right.

Elizabeth Taylor The Appropriator had no business playing Cleopatra. The Macedonian of the Ptolemaic bloodline was really a long-limbed black woman. In Afrocentric mythistory, even the Sphinx had negroid features. That is until it became the target of one of the first documented, racially motivated acts of vandalism. The facial crater borne so stoically by the Sphinx comes—don’t you know?—from being socked on the nose by Napoleon’s racist troops.

Is there no end to the antics of those white bad boys?

****

Tune in to Part II. Especially crucial for parents whose kids are pedagogically institutionalized, it’ll counter Afrocentric mythistory.

    Esperanza Spalding, whose music I do listen to (a charming and intelligent jazz), in her album Radio Music Society, in Black Gold, has such words:

    Think of all the strength you have in you
    From the blood you carry within you
    Ancient men, powerful men
    Built us a civilization

    They’ll be folks hell bent on putting you down
    Don’t get burned (don’t get burned)
    Not necessarily everyone will know your worth

    Think of all the strength you have in you
    From the blood you carry within you
    Ancient men, powerful men
    Built us a civilization
    Think of all the strength you have in you
    Powerful, powerful men
    Built us a civilization

    I always wondered what civilization does she mean and in what context (wink, wink). If to discount a fad with Timbuktu, what is she singing about? Yet, I have to clarify, unlike Beyonce, Spalding does write some cute music.

    And regarding her leftist lyrics : have you ever listened to the magnificent musical poetry of Cole Porter, or George Gershwin, or Johnny Mercer, or Hoagy Carmichael, ( Star dust) apparently not.

    A lot of avant-garde could be very much defined as unintelligent, such as some Zorn's work. I don't know if this will fit your own opinions.

    Rather laughable the mental level of Sharpton’s audience and base of support. Similar to the Nation of Islam’s ‘theology’ with it’s idea of Yakub the big-headed scientist and other such bizarre fairy tales. It’s an unsettling idea to realize that there’s literally millions of US residents who are persuaded by all this. Even less funny is the fact that Sharpton was a very frequent visitor of the president. It’s been a long eight years.

    Kind of blue is supposedly the biggest selling recording in jazz history, still racking up approx 25 000 sales per month and his, Mile's, solo on "Freddy the freeloader" is so marvelous it surpasses description.

    Miles made millions from this one single recording, recorded in 1959, and I am sure that he did not want to " choke" his white piano man on the recording, the legendary Bill Evans, such as alleged by someone else here.

    It is well established historical fact, you know (wink, wink). In the same time, the Black Plague (Death), if to follow Jesus was black logic, should also be credited to Al Sharpton. Wait, he is a black plague. The effects of his activity, as well as those of AG Eric Holder or his boss Obama are, in many important respects, comparable to the effects of this old Middle Ages thing and we still can not completely comprehend the consequences.

  19. IM – I followed your link to “undistinguished African academics” and found nothing of the kind. I found reference to the three volume work “Black Athena” by the very distinguished non-African scholar Martin Bernal, grandson of the great Egyptologist Sir Alan Gardiner.

    " A charming and intelligent jazz"

    would you please be so kind as to explain precisely what "unintelligent" jazz would encompass, as I myself have been performing jazz for over fifty years and I have yet to encounter an "unintelligent" version thereof, better or worse, but "unintelligent" no.
