The grotesque core of paradise


"Sometimes people hold a Core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And it is so important to protect the core belief, that they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief."  --FRANTZ FANON (1925-1961)


I was reviewing Fanon to understand the massified adoration of Barack Obama. I remembered since 2008 and 2009 I was constantly invited to be driven or flown to Washington D.C. to celebrate America's first Black and African-American president. When I declined I was reprimanded, chasten and questioned by family and friends for my so-called idealistic and irrational militancy. For a part of my family is from a place where Blacks have been executive office holders for decades. I am talking about the Caribbean, of course. History has brutally exposed these nergro paradises as complete political, social and economic failures. 

So much for the Black Prophets of Third World bourgeois electoral politics leading their Black flocks to the Promise Land. The Caribbean, of course! Instead, these dusky ringmasters of the neo-colonial circus have treated the Black working class to a non-stop circus under the bigtop of sadistic police terror, grinding poverty and cultural decadence set to the beachfront calypso rhythm of middle aged Canadian women sexing it with impoverished caricatures of island male authenticity.




I remember that between November and January (2008-2009) the U.S. Black "community" became an enraptured Baptist congregation, a veritable tent revival meeting, as the brothas and the sistas convulsed/danced in celebration of the inauguration of "our" first Black royal family. Meanwhile, AFROCOM first set its re-colonizing boots on African soil. 


Blacks continued to shake and shimmy as young people in the Middle East had to duck American-furnished drones. They even mumbled, croaked and hollered with joy as Blacks and American society in general began to smart from imposed economic austerity policies and the pickpocket expense of healthcare called "socialist" Obamacare. All the time, their eyes rolled in their sockets and their tongues clucked in parched mouths as local police went on a paramilitary fashion binge, and teargas became the preferred patriotic cologne on the streets of Law-and-Order. Think about it. That really happened.

Nonetheless, the youth of Ferguson were the first to hear the clatter of the locks on the genocidal ovens. They understood the trajectory of the inferno inside, the road sign to the contemporary paradise.


History is on our side but not time, and clarity has always been a weapon within history. As such, those of us who kick the scenery of the murderous AMERIKKKAN stage play and expose that the trees and bushes are cardboard daggers will never be celebrated.

"Ebola??!! Baby, I hope I don't catch Moby Dick!"

By Sekou OSEI
and William PLEASANT




This is a time for some serious reflection on the American character and its social development and outlook.

Here is why. I've witnessed in several "revolutionary" Black political meetings:

Young people argue and fight about the greatness of Rick Ross versus the greatness of  B. I. G. 
People tell me that Barack Obama is a Black Nationalist Radical Muslim and that Jamaica is the name of the region called the Caribbean, and everyone from the Caribbean is actually called a Jamaican.

 Meanwhile, I have been told that World Wars 1 and 2 were tricks played by a secret Jewish conspiracy "of" and "for" world domination. 

A number of people argued that Africa is a "nation" and they, Africans, live among and had to protect their food from angry monkeys, thus the basis for the spread of Ebola.(???) Oh, just like Moby Dick is a form of STD, I guess?

A number of Black people couldn't tell me the years of the American Civil War. Did you know that Nelson Mandela was the biological brother of Martin Luther King? Yes, lawd! 

Likewise, the American revolution was to create the greatest democracy that ever existed, and slavery was a minor contradiction in the evolution of this great republic, a brother has recently told me, with a straight face and professorship at a name brand university.

Prof. Molefi Assante might insist: 
"But I is the authentic Afrikan niggest!"

I have seen Black people with advanced degrees cry and throw a pissy-fit and actually vomit over who lost American Idol, while they haven't found a job in 8 months. 

I have heard that the TV program "Scandal" is an inspiring role model for young Black girls. This only came from Black women in their 40's 50's 60's, of course. 

A number of people have insisted that before Jessie Jackson became famous he started his career as a professional wrestler--from TV to politics.

Egypt is not in Africa, but a part of the Middle East, you know. And Turkey is the place where Oscar-Meyer cold cuts began. 

In short, Americans, even members of the erstwhile educated stratum, are fucking stupid!

What we have in the US is the vulgar marriage of technological over-development and social under-development  encapsulated in the cult of FASHION and vectored like malaria by the corporate-owned infotainment industry. 

American youths are inculcated with the notion that actual life means nothing, thus words and concepts mean nothing. Everything is just "style" and style alone is the apex of social presence. In this wasteland of empty gestures and postures, the young wait like sheep for the slaughter.

New Ebola Virus discovery

..and it's been afflicting us for six years so far.
--Baba Rumraisin

For My Nubian Queens


This is for My Nubian Queens, for the socially redundant and mentally retarded and general Obama supporters who insist that mental retardation is integral to the creative process. And this is also for those who think that "Scandal" is the proud apex of confident Black entrepreneurship, epitomized by the image of  a colored belly warmer who can be more than a social role model because she screws the "president" while humping from the top. Moreover so, from watching "Blackish," My Nubian Queens understand the importance of colored multi-culturalism in Black-face, since all that negroes need to assimilate in americKKKa today  is the ritual significance of a Bar Mitzvah in order to move beyond "race."  

Coonery has triumphed for My Nubian Queens, as they tread the the ruins of a once great culture.

Baby Doc Duvalier:The swine who escaped slaughter.

By Sekou OSEI
Baby Doc Duvalier - tens of thousands killed and tortured under his ...<b>Baby Doc</b>” Duvalier back in Haiti is (should be) BIG news































                            







Jean-Claude Duvalier (THEN & Pre-demise)

Hello,
Today has finally become a GOOD and GREAT day. The world is now a 
cleaner place. The clown pig called Jean-Claude Duvalier or "Baby Doc" 
has finally left the world and now we all must clean the stench that he left. 
He has left a tradition of harlot proxy betrayal of the people and now the 
world can flush this bloated Dung compost of useless fertilizer of a person. 
Konsa, deye mon yo,mon and the resistance and the resiliency of the of 
the Haitian people will never be stifle the ugly and intense beauty of it rose of liberation.

For its "insane" to think that the slaves would forget their slavery and Jean-Jacques Dessalines cease to be a ghost when children are kidnapped to line the pockets of white American run orphanage in the Dominican Republic. The ghost of Jean-Jacques Dessalines cease to be a ghost when the children of Haiti must suffer with cholera, where the means to stop it are just ignored as Nepalese soldiers pee in the river were to introduce the bacteria into the river as peace keepers, the ghost of Jean-Jacques Dessalines cease to be a ghost as the people give a terrifying whisper--Madame Martelly is pocketing the money...while the people collapse from hunger and can't send their children to school--As Sweet Micky is a sweet harlot who ceases to be entertaining. The ghost of Jean-Jacques Dessalines cease to be ghost in the body of Charlemagne Peralte who heard the peoples screaming whisper of Jean-Jacques Dessalines.

While in this century the struggles to stifle the intense 
beauty of ugliness in the liberation of the people as the 
slaves try to unlock the lock of history around their necks, 
put there by Black figures of proxies As a Papa-father of 
Doc the sterile curse Duvalier, while he bring himself to share 
power of money with the lights of mulatto, he jumps into the 
darkness with the new Black middles class who was barren 
of concern of the vast vast vast vast majority called the peasants
so under the vacuum of Vodou cultural nationalism the Papa had 
won the election in the birth of 1957, while the educated took to live
in the Congo the smiles of the Tonton Macoutes were too much 
on a bright day of ugly rains. The North Americans of White had 
found a useful ally to isolate those Spanish speaking radical 
revolutionaries whose sins were picking up the guns and knew 
how to aim and where. As nature whose have it because justice 
is the social human effort of the beauty of focus and the focus 
of beauty Papa Duvalier died a peaceful death.

While the ghost of Jean-Jacques Dessaline's hand was to materialize and 
violently clutch heart of this comfortably pig, seeking not to remain a ghost. 
But the new stench among humanity who live without the air freshener 
of real democracy and liberation Duvalier the baby of Doc, while 
Jean-Jacques Dessaline whose atheism couldn't wait for his turning 
from the world of ghost as the Doc of Baby continued to have foreigners 
work the people to death giving life to death making baseballs,

     As Jean-Claude ran the world of Haiti to the ground to impress 
a mulatto of self-involved conspicuous consumption whose disease 
was called "Michele," who dance with imported French shoes and 
fur coat in very high air-conditions gold-plated rooms on Rue St Martin 
where she so grand that she fart perfume that could be smelled in 
Jacmel as she helped in the vulgar dance of the world-life of Haiti's 
parsimony into ceremoniousness empty burial, she couldn't hear the "click" 
of the magazine to know life is now in session, thus the usual divorce 
when the cash was to run away and low through appropriation of 
foreign aid and heavy taxation of the vast majority who stare.Baby 
and she shook the hands of General Henri Namphy and Prosper 
Avril they wipe the gun powder off their bows to shake hands. 
The ghost of Jean-Jacques Dessalines will cease to be a ghost 
as the children of the earth quake begin to stomp and get the focus 
of beauty and the beauty of focus as memories cease to be memories 
but the ugly beauty of the hostile rose of ghostly red.

As we and the world must cleanse the world of dead 
swine and put the stench of the inhuman against our 
humanity into the needed dungeons of justice. 
No peaceful reconciliation with war crimes against 
our humanity. Well the nature had flush the toilet in the 
most needed way and now the world a little cleaner way 
as the ghost of Jean-Jacques Dessalines cease to be a 
ghost as he plants the ugly beautiful rose of intense red of liberation....

And how was your Labor Day?

By William PLEASANT

And this is Baltimore, 9/1/2014...

There is the mist and smoke and fog of holiday flesh roasting for happiness, seasoned with the rot of wet garbage melting beneath a sadomaniacal summer sun.

There are the the grey, opaque eyes of the toddlers bobbing in heads braided as tightly and barbed as wire in gross plastic balls of too many colors. These are children dragged to full march by grossly obese mothers who keep the painful cadence with a drum roll of profanities.

There are the other morbidly obese women who gather at the curbstone, bent at what were once waists but a couple of years earlier, bent in some sort of supplication while spewing neon-pink vomit to the pavement and the frolic of gorging flies.

There are the Black men lounging beneath trees, on the greasy doorsteps of tenement caves, lounging after a gnut in/on one of the obese women or some of their children, lounging after a long drink of something cheap and poisonous, lounging and decaying on living bones, as juvenile vultures circle on stolen bicycles, separating the dying from the dead and calculating the booty the night will bring with darkness.

And finally, there is me. I survey the asphalt prairie. I dodge the blowing tumbleweeds of rubbish. I step lightly, 'less I detonate the landmines--daggers of broken bottles/molehills of dog droppings--that wreath the coffin of a dead American city. 

There is me in a mock quandary. My lips quiver: "Is this what the American working class dares call the star of its achievement? The singed meat and waxing sewage smells like a victory worthy of celebration?" Again, the quandary is a mock one. And I am not alone in my knowledge.

South Africa: 3rd World Solidarity or neo-colonial BULLSHIT


By William PLEASANT


Will South  African Pres. Joseph Zuma and the ANC put
their money (literally diamonds) where their mouths are?


For the sake of fairness, we enter below the entirety of the South African National Congress' (ANC) official position on the ongoing GENOCIDE against the Palestinian population of Gaza. For 50+ days, the zionist --with the active political and financial support of Pres. Barack Obama and the entire legislative branch of the US government--subjected the virtually unarmed population of Gaza to a massacre via land, sea and air. The entire world community recoiled in horror. Several Latin American nations, especially Argentina, Bolivia an Nicaragua, took punitive diplomatic retaliation against the Israeli settler regime. Not to be outdone, the ruling party of the Republic of South Africa put in its two cents. Read the following...

The situation in Gaza Strip

10 July 2014
The African National Congress (ANC),condemns in the strongest terms, the barbaric attacks on the defenceless Palestinian people of Gaza. Israeli attacks on the besieged Gaza strip have resulted in the deaths of over 27 Palestinians, at least 6 of them children. The Israeli attacks have further resulted in injuring over 200 Palestinians and traumatising thousands of others.
As we move towards the month of August and are reminded of he atrocities of Nazi Germany, surely we must ask the people of Israel has the term "lest we forget" lost it meaning.
The state of Israel has turned the occupied territories of Palestine into permanent death camps. Of course the killing of any child irrespective of race color or creed must be condemned and the death of two Israeli young people is surely as senseless as any other death. But for the State of Israel, the notion of an eye for an eye has become perpetual massacre with merciless revenge which has lasted for more than 60 years. It is time to stop the killing now.

The recent attacks must cease as well as the ongoing and illegal Israeli occupation and collective Israeli punishment of the Palestinians. Gaza is the world`s largest open air prison with over 1,5 million Palestinians caged in and cut off from the rest of the world. The Gaza Strip is the world`s most densely populated piece of land on this earth making the Israeli bombing of the Palestinian Gaza Strip all the more horrendous. The collective punishment and illegal siege of the Palestinian people of Gaza must immediately end.
In line with our 2012 policy resolutions, that called on "all South Africans to support the programmes and campaigns of the Palestinian civil society which seek to put pressure on Israel", branches and structures of the ANC across the country will be joining the Palestine solidarity and boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement in organizing protests and pickets calling for the immediate end of Israeli violence against the Palestinian people. We call on all South Africans, Black, White, Jewish, Muslim, Christian and all others to join us in expressing our solidarity. Solidarity will brings us together as different South Africans just as how the international anti-apartheid movement brought people together.
The Israeli regime must realise that its acts of violence like these attacks on Gaza will only lead to its international isolation. After its 2009 attacks on Gaza which resulted in over 1400 Palestinians being killed, more than 400 of them children, the BDS and international isolation of Israel increased exponentially. Apartheid South Africa`s wanton killing of our people during the 1980s lead to its isolation, it would seem that Israel is taking a similar path of isolation by embarking on these attacks.
The ANC reiterates its 2012 policy position that as an organisation we are unequivocal in our support for the Palestinian people in their struggle for self-determination, and unapologetic in our view that the Palestinians are the victims and the oppressed in the conflict with Israel.

Oh so noble is this  posturing on behalf of human rights and Third World Solidarity. But the policies of South Africa's ANC regime, in pursuit of its neo-colonial and neo-liberal agendas, tell a different story. Currently, South Africa supports zionism in Palestine to the hilt. It is as complicit in the racist atrocities perpetrated by the Israelis against the indigenous Palestinians as is Obama and his corrupt crew in Washington, DC.


The ANC's hands in Palestinian blood


In July 2000, the global diamond industry set up the World Diamond Council--WDC. (The US became a signatory in 2003.) The WDC was established as a response to public outrage about the use of diamonds to fund bloody conflicts in western African countries and it includes representatives from the World Federation of Diamond Bourses and the International Diamond Manufacturers Association. The council’s ultimate mandate is “the development, implementation and oversight of a tracking system for the export and import of rough diamonds to prevent the exploitation of diamonds for illicit purposes such as war and inhumane acts.” Significantly, the WDC limits its concern about human rights violations to those funded by rough diamonds only. In 2003, the WDC introduced a system of self-regulation called the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme to stem the flow of “conflict” or “blood diamonds.” In keeping with the limited concerns of the WDC, the UN-mandated Kimberly Process adopted a very narrow definition of what constitutes a conflict or blood diamond: “rough diamonds used by rebel movements or their allies to finance conflict aimed at undermining legitimate governments.” Consequently and deliberately, the much more lucrative trade in cut and polished diamonds avoids the human rights strictures applying to rough diamonds, provided the industry uses only Kimberly Process-compliant rough diamonds. Regardless of the human rights violations and atrocities funded by revenue from the Israeli diamond industry, governments and other vested interests party to the Kimberly Process facilitate the unrestricted access of diamonds crafted in Israel to the multi-billion dollar global diamond market. In short, the Israeli diamond industry was exempted from the Kimberly scheme, and New York City's 47th Street Diamond Market continues to flourish unabated, despite the fact that its primary product is manufacture under the auspices of a ROGUE REGIME.



The WDC created a web site called Diamondfacts.org to promote the virtues of the industry. It lists 24 facts extolling the benefits of the diamond industry — primarily to India and countries in Africa. Some of the benefits include that an estimated 5 million people have access to appropriate healthcare globally thanks to revenues from diamonds; diamond revenues enable every child in Botswana to receive free education up to the age of 13; the revenue from diamonds is instrumental in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
Despite the WDC's self-serving hype, the African diamond industry actually only benefits the native comprador bourgeois class and its assorted parasites (police, customs officials, local bankers and outright gangsters) who feed on the graft derived from skirting the Kimberly Process altogether. In fact, most diamonds entering the cutting and polishing houses in Tel Aviv and NYC are non-compliant gems. In the case of NYC, these illegal diamonds enter via JFK Airport in the trouser pockets of American diamond merchants who are overwhelmingly members of various hyper-zionistic, Jewish religious cults scattered throughout the Borough of Brooklyn. These smugglers are capable of introducing $2 to $5 million dollars worth  of rough diamonds (approximately the weight of a SNICKERS BAR) to the US market in a single trip between NYC and Tel Aviv. Conveniently for them, there are NO US customs taxes on rough diamonds entering the country. Moreover, due to the obscene pro-zionist corruption of the federal government, these criminals are rarely challenged by customs agents at the JFK border.
NYC's 47th St. Diamond District is the epicenter of the Africa-Israel diamond industry in the US.
Excluding Namibia and Angola, which have sought to add industrial value to their diamond resources, the vast majority of African nations export raw materials to Europe, the US and, most importantly, Israel. Put simply, cash-starved, native African diamond miners sell their stones to Israeli versions of Jungle Jim at what is widely described as BUSH PRICE. That means that large and exquisite diamonds are very often purchased at well below wholesale prices. For example: a rough diamond that sells for $300 per carat (0.20 grams) is snatched from Africans for $50 or less! This is hardly a benefit to the African working and peasant classes. A tour of present-day slums in South Africa, in particular, speak volumes to the daily rip-of off the nation's natural resources to the benefit the Israelis and other colonial rapists, as well as their facilitators in the ANC regime.

Israel's diamond industry helps fund atrocities and human rights abuses such as the killing, maiming and terrorizing of thousands of innocent men, women and children in Palestine and Lebanon — the sort of atrocities the Kimberly Process was supposed to prevent being funded by revenue from diamonds.
The list of WDC “Diamond Facts” paints a farcical image of the industry. It asserts that the greatest benefits are being felt in some of the poorest nations of the world. But Israel, one of the wealthiest nations, towers over all other countries in terms of the net benefit derived from the diamond industry. The added value to the Israeli economy from the export of diamonds was nearly $10 billion in 2008 (see Figure 2 below).
The WDC website is equally selective when it comes to providing information about which countries are most dependent on diamonds. It explains that Namibia, one of the minor diamond exporting countries in monetary terms, derives 40 percent (Trade PerformanceHS: Exports of Israel” accessed 25 March 2010) (See Figures 3 and 4). By comparison, the budget for Israel’s Ministry of Defense was $16 billion in 2008.
Revenue from the diamond industry helps fund Israel’s illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories, its brutal subjugation of the Palestinian people and its international network of saboteurs, spies and assassins. None of this is alluded to in the WDC’s “Diamond Facts.”
Contrary to claims by the diamond industry and jewelers that all diamonds are now conflict free, they are not. Israel’s dominant position in the industry means that diamonds crafted in Israel are interspersed globally with diamonds crafted in other countries. Consumers who purchase diamonds that are not laser-inscribed to identify where they were crafted run a significant risk of purchasing a diamond crafted in Israel, thereby helping to fund gross human rights violations. The Kimberly Process Certification Scheme strictures only apply to rough diamonds, thus allowing diamonds crafted in Israel to freely enter the market regardless of the criminal actions of the Israeli government and armed forces. The Kimberly Process is a joke when it comes to sanctioning the zionist regime for its genocidal policies in Palestine. When it comes to policing the diamond industry, arrogantly ruled by the Israelis and their US-based junior partners in NYC, the wolves have been left to guard the sheep. Likewise, the US government is the ringmaster of this bloodstained circus by refusing to enforce its own treaty obligations to the Kimberly Process, especially when it comes to sanctioning Jewish-American smugglers..
Given the failure of Western governments to hold Israel to account for numerous breaches of international law including international humanitarian law, breaches of the UN Charter, its failure to abide by more than 30 binding UN Security Council Resolutions, breaches of EU Agreements and disregard for the 2004 advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice, they are unlikely to insist that the diamond industry broaden the definition of a conflict diamond to include cut and polished diamonds that directly fund Israel's human rights abuses against the indigenous peoples of Palestine.
The chart below demonstrates the extent to which the zionist regime relies on diamonds to fuel its economy.
The diamond industry is a major pillar of the Israeli economy (see Figure 5 above). No other developed country is so heavily dependent on a single luxury commodity.

In service to the Palestinian struggle for liberation, South Africa could shatter the spine of the settler regime's economy. Everybody knows this, especially the more radical elements of the ANC-led coalition government. More than two years ago, the South African left called on the ANC to shut down diamond trade gangsterism in the country.

Organisations including South Africa's National Union of Mineworkers (NUM); the country's largest trade union federation, COSATU; the SA Communist Party; Young Communist League; South African Students Congress (SASCO); Congress of South African Students (COSAS), the Coalition for a Free Palestine and BDS South Africa have demanded the end to the pimp-whore relationship between the ANC and the Israeli diamond mongerers.
In a statement issued at a press conference (June 13, 2012) held at COSATU's Head Office in Johannesburg pointed out that the KPCS presents an opportunity for South African officials to show "moral vision and political leadership" by excluding Israel. "The billions of dollars' worth of diamonds exported via Israel are," said the pro-Palestinian coalition, "a major source of revenue for the Israeli military, which stands accused of war crimes." Such a move would have local benefits too, it added, by "bringing home" many lucrative diamond processing jobs to South Africa. Income from diamond processing carried out in Israel also, charged the coalition, helps to develop military hardware such as pilotless drones.
Speaking to Business Day newspaper, Southern Africa Resource Watch director Claude Kabemba explained that the old Kimberly Process scheme is an anachronism, since most diamond-linked conflicts have been resolved, He asserted that the Kimberley Process now has to expand its mandate and monitor the entire diamond chain: 
Continued Kabemba, "The Kimberley Process has played an important role over the past decade in resolving conflicts linked to the diamond trade but there is no doubt that it has to be reformed... [by] expanding the definition of conflict to include human rights abuses linked to diamond extraction perpetrated by governments and companies; and expanding downstream monitoring so that the process covers not just the rough diamond trade but also the international movement and polishing of diamonds."
The statement from South Africa's pro-Palestinian coalition called 
on the Kimberley Process to:
  1. Exclude Israel from the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) due to Israel's human rights abuses against the indigenous Palestinians;
  2. Expand the Kimberley Process to include cut and polished diamonds in addition to rough diamonds; and
  3. End all exports of rough diamonds to Israel immediately.
A member of South Africa's Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign said that a boycott of Israeli "blood diamonds", and specifically the banning of diamond-polishing in the country, is a win-win solution for all. "Consumers will have a clear conscience that their diamonds are not funding, assisting or in any way involved with the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine," insisted Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, "and more jobs will be created locally for our people by bringing this diamond processing back home instead of it being done in Israel." While opponents of the Israel boycott often try to claim that the boycott will harm South Africans, added Ndlozi, this is a case where it only benefits them.
If the ANC regime wants to concretely address the oppression of the Palestinian people, then the writing is on the wall: EXPEL THE ISRAELI DIAMOND MACHINE FROM SOUTH AFRICA. It's expression of Third World Solidarity with the Palestinians will amount to little more than neo-colonial BULLSHIT otherwise.
