Pastor Randy Short is helping lead authentic black leaders’ pushback against the sold-out-and-infiltrated Black Lives Matter movement. Does he agree with me that white police should be ejected from African-American communities, in favor of self-policing by religiously based groups? Listen and see.

Randy once faced a police officer busting into a university study area at three a.m. with gun drawn: “I guess because I was very calm, and the officer said ‘you look tense.’ And I said ‘you have a loaded pistol.’ He put his gun away and left. But he would have happily killed me. And it would have been ‘self defense, he was afraid for his life’ and I would have been shot dead over a bunch of xerox copies of the 1919 race riot reports. Of course I’m a ‘threat to law enforcement,’ researching as a postgraduate student.”

Randy Short’s grandmother and grandfather had to escape lynching attempts. His brother survived an attempted homicide by a police officer. And he has had experiences with police, “enough to understand it’s easy to die, it’s easy to get killed, it’s easy to get beaten. So of course I’m very concerned about police brutality. But it’s only a symptom of my people as a collective not being free.”

In this interview Randy cites Twin Cities sources who say the murder of George Floyd by Derek Chauvin involved more than meets the eye, and should become the focus of a police corruption and organized crime investigation.

For my take on the big picture, see “George Floyd Killing: Mafia Murder or Human Sacrifice?” and “US Bankers Stole $7 Trillion During COVID Crisis (and their Media Is Changing the Subject to Race“).

  1. I have nit heard the evidence to support it. But I would not be surprised to discover that Mr. Floyd had inadvertently exposed or put at risk some other nefarious financial dealings.

    But until that evidence comes to light — it is just a wondering passing muse.

  2. In general, I think his assessment is correct.

    Though not everyone who is marching are fake.

    I am not sure I buy the insider relational dynamic, against there needs o be some support. You have the Matthew Shephard story correct in that it was not about Mr. Shepherd’s choice of expression.

    But white liberals have always hijacked legitimate concerns of back citizens regarding violations of their rights of the same. Whites have been hijacking civil rights issues since the 1960’s. That is absolutely correct, the civil rights act was unnecessary, because discrimination as it was practice was already against the law. The correct response to these violations was to enforce the laws – the mandate of the Constitution. The civil rights act has been used as a bludgeon against the black population.

    Interesting and unusual.

    For some reason, European whites tend not to have these problems with the cops. Nor do the Japanese or the Koreans. It’s almost like the observation is that high intelligence, low belligerence people can occupy a civil society and enjoy it without antagonizing law enforcement. Hell, even middling intelligence Mexicans, Cubans and some South Americans can do this. Really strange. Might take some thorough research to understand it fully. It probably has nothing to do with race.

    Probably.

    Laughing.

    Not based on the advocacy that whites have the same issues in greater numbers. The purpose of which is delimit the scope claimed the issue systemic. Some of you will have to make up your minds. Either this is a blacks only issue or as the more whites argument goes —- more are battered by police abuse than blacks.

    But never let it be said that the dominant society doesn’t want their power status both ways.

    Laugh.

    Floyd had the characteristic features of the sub Saharan African, blubber lips etc. As an African American radical once said. ‘Sub Saharan Africans never built a house.’ I am not sure he was right but I get his point. I imagine American cops of all races driven into an atavistic rage when in confrontations with them. Pastor Randy Short was relatively safe with an armed cop because he looked educated and intelligent. After all he wasn’t shot.

    There is that counterfeit $20 and both worked at the same night club.

    Counterfeiting, drugs, money laundering being exposed by Floyd?

    I am so glad to see this discussion topic. I did not listen to the interview yet (in next hour or so). But it is troubling to see manipulation of the topic. In my opinion, economic disparity, racism (not only against African Americans, but to a lessor degree towards other ethnicities or religions), rich vs poor (whites, blacks, and the rest). Where is racism when it comes to Obama, Susan rice, Oprah, all those civil rights “Icons”, one can have their own list. They made it to the top, the hell with the rest.
    As Malcolm X pointed out that the white establishment was picking up black leaders to represent blacks. They were given the platform, access to the media and money.
    How would you like to know that “Miss” Rosa Park was young black activist and not an old lady as we are forced to believe when the bus incident happened in Dec. 1955. If you read Prof. Howard Zinn and watch Democracy Now (Amy Goodman), a different narrative emerges. The first black woman who refused to give her but seat to a white person was arrested about six months before Rosa Park. But no one will ever know about the pioneer of the bus incident. The “original ” lady was interviewed on Democracy now a few years ago. The establishment did not want her to be the icon of the movement. Proves the point Malcolm X made.
    I am still figuring it out who is funding and organizing the riots. With all those investigative tools, technology and Gizmos the Government is unable to find out. One of my overseas friend asked? how come the diamond district in Manhattan was left alone. Jewish Mafia colluding with the rioters????.
    Hard to find the answers. And above all why rioting? According to on line videos one can see the white girl starting fire in Wendys, White women women spray painting on Starbuck BLM while black girls trying to stop them, so many examples….. What is going on? Marvin Gay…………..

    Then why didn’t he? There were no witnesses.

    I think this “rev’rum” has some bullcrap in him-especially his police story.

    As far as your post, Rosa Parks (not Park) was a 40 something married woman-not old but not young at the time of her arrest.

    The “pioneer” of the bus boycott that you mention was Claudette Colvin. SHE was young-15. She was a high school student who got arrested 9 months before Parks. Colvin was an NAACP youth club member, where one of her mentors was……Rosa Parks.

    Colvin was also a foul mouthed, inarticulate, dark-skinned (that’s important to negroes) young woman who at the time, had gotten knocked up by a married neighbor just after turning 15, and was several months pregnant at 15 and in high school, which is why she wasn’t seen as a good martyr for the “cause”.

    The “white girls” starting fires in Atlanta is a scam. A white woman in a heavily black part of town would be, even under normal circumstances, be taking her life in her hands. If blacks really wanted to “stop her” they would have torn her limb from limb. It was either a light skinned black, or a useful idiot white woman picked to do it to make whites look culpable, It’s all kabuki propaganda for the mouthbreathing rubes.Sounds like you got taken in.

  10. Listening to Chet Atkins marks one as a what reverend?

    This guy doesn’t have the facts, just conjecture. This interview is an example of what happens when half-truths go unchallenged.

    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in while.

  11. “Then why didn’t he? There were no witnesses.’

    Because most black people don’t defend themselves, most of the time defend themselves in ways that d-escalate, reassure, appeals the sensibilities of . . . etc.

    He did not say,

    none of your dog gone business what i am ding in here, what are you doing in here with gun drawn — ” what burglar operates with the lights on? ”

    or

    “Sorry, no Clint Eastwood moment for you.”

    or

    “Good grief man. settle down, you look unhinged, irrational and quite the Barney Fife.”

    or

    “What complete jackass.”

    or

    “Maybe , start by asking another human being politely as human beings do — ”

    Any number of perfectly legal, sane, appropriate responses. But most back people explain their every move in detail when dealing wit the police, because they know the officer, is as irrational a mind given what he has been taught when dealing with black people and misstep could turn deadly in a seconds. That’s why. In other words, what the Pastor is saying is he avoided providing an opportunity for the officer to be any more irrational of mind than he already was.

    He avoided being “uppity” which is the code word for reason to engage in extrajudicial behavior — especially with respect to backs.

  12. “Colvin was also a foul mouthed, inarticulate, dark-skinned (that’s important to negroes) young woman who at the time, had gotten knocked up by a married neighbor just after turning 15, and was several months pregnant at 15 and in high school, which is why she wasn’t seen as a good martyr for the “cause”.”

    given the foulness that masquerades as intelligent discussion around these parts — it’s hard to take a lead off meant to justify what follows seriously.

    You need to read some history. That description of Colvin (excepting the dark-skinned part) came from maintsream histories, like David Garrow’s Bearing the Cross.

    As for the significance of “dark-skinned,” MLK was on the record as saying that he’d never sleep with a “black” (i.e., dark-skinned) woman.

    Randy speculates that the officer might have happily killed him had the officer perceived him as threatening or maybe even just uppity. Fortunately Randy overcame the adrenaline and was able to come across as calm and non-threatening. But ones instinct in such situations is “fight or flight” which means most people wouldn’t be able to maintain that much self-control. So situations like this often end up with the cop “happily” killing the “threatening” black guy, and then lying about the circumstances to make it sound justified.

    I’m the OP. Thanks for your comments. I’m a big fan of yours.

    I didn’t fully expand upon the dark-skinned part of my comment. Like you, and unlike a lot of people, even on here, I’ve been around the groid block a time or two. I know them very well, which is why I dislike them very much. I figured someone like you would know what I meant, but not everyone would.

    Dark skin is important to blacks in a negative image sort of way. So Colvin being a bluegum was a factor against her. That and being a knocked up 15 year old. But being a high yellow was a big factor in the selection of Rosa Parks.

    Unlike the clown I responded to, who evidently didn’t know Colvin’s name and misspelled Parks’s, I knew all this schitt a long time ago. My mention of Colvin’s skin tone being a factor was not written lightly. Here are some other mentions of it:

    I’ve spent a lot of time among knigrow males. One of their prime pastimes is talking smack to each other, bragging about how they mouthed off to cops who they have encountered due to their monkeyshines. Often they will mimic the cop’s “white” voice. Even allowing for their considerable capacity for BS, most knigrows are not in the least scared of cops, and since most are drunk/high almost all the time, their already feeble judgment is usually clouded.

    I can hear a concern troll like yourself saying “b…but it’s a very serious potentially life and death situation that can easily escalate”.

    Well, duh. These people didn’t advance so far by overthinking things.

  17. $7 Trillion is nothing nowadays. The Levy Economic Institute and several economists estimate that Obama’s FED gave out $29 Trillion in the 2009-12 Bank Bailouts. “Liquidity injections” have happened frequently since then, this latest bailout is just the early first step. Stealing taxpayer money to keep the House Of Cards stock market functioning is the only function nowadays of government. Too big and too important and too rich to fail or jail.

  18. “You need to read some history. That description of Colvin (excepting the dark-skinned part) came from maintsream histories, like David Garrow’s Bearing the Cross.”

    I have no idea what you are talking about. My comment had no bearing on whether or not the gentlemen had relations with anyone. But instead to the side reference about being foul mouthed which is no stranger to these parts.

    but to what seems to be your point, I have this response.

    People have relations with whom they will and their preferences are impacted by subjective rationale that often defy convention, even if that convention is one of color socio-expectations. A preference for greens or blue has no verified standard based on skin alone as the frustrated colonials experienced repeated In other words, I don’t think the gentlemen in question represents an authority of the choice of relations.

  19. “Dark skin is important to blacks in a negative image sort of way. So Colvin being a bluegum was a factor against her. That and being a knocked up 15 year old. But being a high yellow was a big factor in the selection of Rosa Parks.”

    Uhhh, you think this is some profound revelation. Blacks are very well acquainted with the issues regarding color class status. It is not as intense as the white social construction, but it’s no secret that many blacks of said tine consider themselves if some higher value because of what it provided to social power, especially among whites. And many blacks/afican americans who could

    “pass”

    did so. Not because of hatred of self, but because, it was a path to assimilation and fewer problems — anyone who understands pragmatism, understands this. But that structuration as widely practiced in and out African American life — is indicative of just how systemic the color expectations are in out country.

    That model was roundly used in playing black slaves one against the other as with seasoning practices of establishing who was an acceptable black.

    ———————-

    The tell, it was whites who defined mullattos as blacks instead of whites and established the “one drop rule” as a national standard — an unwritten law.
