Letters From Facebook Jail

Muhammad Rasheed - So this time I'm banned for 30 days, which as a long-time fan of the old Deputy Dawg cartoon made me chuckle when I saw the FB message. The titular character used to hand out 30-day sentences like candy on that show, so I heard his voice in my head as I read it (it also caused me to do my DD impression all day, of questionable accuracy since it kept transforming into a Paul Puma impression). Anyway, I submitted my report protesting the ban. Hopefully it kicks in and I'm able to return to my regular posting schedule on my M. Rasheed Art Page.

The funniest part about all of this to me, is how the white conservatives like to pretend they are SUPER-PATRIOTS! who are all about the Constitution and the rights of the US Citizen, etc., etc., when in reality they have placed themselves in the role of thought police who want to control the flow of information and force it to tell the pro-white supremacist narrative. I'm personally all about Freedom of Expression, and will willingly trade with anybody on any topic, both for my own knowledge and to use the data as fuel for my art. So their new habit of getting me FB banned out of some petty sense of tit-for-tat -- and the deletion of my Facebook Art Page -- has another goofy layer on top of it outside of the raw hypocrisy of the performance.

Facebook is my social media homeroom, so it sucks being unable to respond to the comments there now. My solution will be to copy/paste the comments into this "Letters From Facebook Jail" space and address them here. So peek in regularly for updates.


Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Alexander,

I have no hate towards whites. I do have total hatred towards your precious systemic racism w/white supremacy attachment though. The nature of racism is whites plundering Blacks to build up their own political, socio-economic class, so the "access" you believe I'm "clamoring for" is no less than protesting your traditional wrongs that I may be free to enjoy my people's own self-empowerment without further sabotage from you lot.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Alex,

It turns out that generations and generations of white people wearing hostile evil faces has made me lose my mind. lol Please tell your folks to knock it off and straighten out their faces. Thanks.

If you go through your life pretending racism is a fiction, and all Blacks who protest systemic racism are crazy, then you are the problem with the world. Take a bow.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Chuck, Jose, Nate & Sam, et al.,

The cartoon is based on the alt-right profile written by Abi Wilkinson, in which she points out that part of their modus operandi is to pretend that they aren't racist when in public. This is laughable since they are really shitty at it and seemingly unaware of all of their own blaring racist tells, which is what I'm poking fun of in the cartoon. "But we were being very polite as we called for the genocide of all the mud people. I don't know what gave us away."

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Virosh & Jason,

The problem with this silly GOP political talking point is that it pretends the 2-party system has always looked the way it does today. Up into the very recent past, the Democrats used to be split up into 2 main factions: the pro-Civil Rights Democrats in the North, and the anti-Civil Rights Southern Democrats ("Dixiecrats"). Reagan actively courted the Southern Democrats, using the coded ("states rights") language that his racist campaign manager devised, and they all ended up 'converting' to GOP-ism en masse to become the good ole boy GOP we know-n-love today. So all of the voter suppression ID laws the modern day GOP supports is 100% a reflection of their racist Democrat roots, but from a different angle than what you are preaching here.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Sean,

In the context of the argument the quote was pulled from, I'm saying that I don't negatively judge white men based solely on "the color of their skin," which is just nonsense misdirection speak that racists use in their effort to pretend the very real evils of systemic racism are only in my head. My judgment of you is based on the evils you have done and continue to do in order to maintain the racist aristocracy you've created at my expense. The label of "race" is the smoke & mirrors concept you've developed to justify the evil actions you perform, and to pretend you aren't doing anything. The idea that the "label" of race is just something I'm unfairly holding onto, is just more of your devilment at work.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Stuart,

lol Meanwhile, I'm reading this from my 91st FB ban. Y'all are SOOO full of crap. hahahaha If the racists that are clearly triggered by my work didn't care as you claim, then I wouldn't be banned, would I, Stuart? Maybe you should leave all the thinking for the grown-ups over at the big table, hm? smh

At the very least, my job is to make the racists uncomfortable, because they prefer to live in their La-La Land Whitopia pretending they are the white-hatted good guys of history who've never done anything wrong. My work is designed to push their nose in their own shit and MAKE them think about their true role in the historic record of Western Society. I'm banned by red-faced, teary-eyed, triggered white conservatives (and white liberals who pretend they aren't anti-Black) so my cartoons are working. Now I just need MORE exposure.  ;)

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Benjamin,

There were wealthy free Blacks during the very height of the slavery era, just as there is a wealthy Black upper class today. The problem isn't the poverty itself, but whites deliberately sabotaging Black people efforts to build wealth over generations and use the leverage for political and economic inclusion. For the last 150 yrs, whites have built up their own middle and upper middle classes by plundering the wealth of Blacks and exploiting their poor. This is the actual problem. Individual Blacks have never had a problem working hard and escaping poverty when they focus on that. The actual problem is YOU and your willing support of a system designed to uplift whites by stealing from Blacks.

Muhammad Rasheed - Wow. lol That one sounded personal, didn't it?

Dear Anthony,

Calm down before you give yourself a stroke. I am not a racist. Trust me I have never denied white people opportunities and/or economically excluded them from anything based on their racial classification or whatever else. I do hate white supremacy though. If that's why you are mad, then I suggest you get over it.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Wade,

It should be obvious (to a normal human anyway) that this cartoon wasn't designed to have a "ha-ha/he-he" type ending. Did you respond the same way whenever Bill Watterson would end some of his strips like that, with a thoughtful ending instead of humorous? Were you aware that cartoonists even had that kind of option? It turns out art is a lot more open & free than you seem to believe.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Ben,

I appreciate the conditioned support, but I am not allowing hate to distort my view of anything. The only thing I hate is the systemic racism and White Supremacist Ideology that all freedom-loving people should hate. These two asshats certainly don't represent the worst of it; they are just thug/henchmen level racists that Batman would take out with one punch while infiltrating the Big Bad's lair.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Daniel,

The slave trade has zero to do with Al-Islam the religion, as it is not supported in the Qur'an nor by it's founder Arab prophet (peace be upon him). Only raw greed drives the Arab slave practice, no different than it does among the judao-christian traders from the time of the West's Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade up to the current slavery 2.0 version of mass incarceration.

In the holy book of Islam -- a faith that is all about collecting good deeds so one may enter paradise -- the One God lists "freeing the slave" as one of the greatest good deeds the believers can perform. This religious trait alone almost wiped out slavery altogether pretty early on in Islam's history, but it was later brought back because the greed in men's hearts was unleashed and overwhelmed their piety. Despite the popular rhetoric of the day, slavery has nothing to do with religion itself. It is purely an anti-religious, greed-fueled economic system.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Jen,

That's not true. They did set up the original model of the Atlantic Slave Trade, having owned all of the initial apparatus involved (sugar cane plantations, ships, rum distilleries, West African port forts, etc.), but once the gentile whites got their hands on the system and went wild-eyed, drooling mad turning it into a super, mega-industry, the Jewish businessmen were mostly content to stay on the Wall Street speculative side of the incredibly lucrative slave economy, confining their "ownership" to company shares and the like. Relatively few decided to risk being on the hands-on side of slave ownership after the Revolutionary War when they took such massive losses.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Raymond & Lee,

So what? Was it Anthony Johnson's sole decision to permanently delegate the chattel slave status to Blacks in order to save poor whites from "the evils of white slavery?" That's the pact that the elite whites made with the poor whites that birthed the racist aristocracy we deal with today.  Whites conspired across class lines to make Black the official "let's shit on them" class so that poor whites could be spared the slavery state... a pact that manifests today as the "promise to the white working class" political talking point. Anthony Johnson's actions, although selfish and evil in their own right, were confined to his own crazy estate in force and scope.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Joe,

The majority of slave owners are for-profit prison CEOs.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Jakub,

I find it interesting (and by "interesting" I mean "batshit insane") that in your critique of this cartoon, you simultaneously blame Blacks for the problems of racism while dismissing racism. You don't think it matters if someone deliberately sabotages a nation and cripples its people, while you project racist talking points at the people for not being pulling themselves up by the bootstraps and bettering themselves as if they are in that state through laziness and not the sabotage. I find it interesting that you also seem to recognize that Blacks AREN'T the barbaric savages of the stereotype, but are on the receiving end of the barbaric savages who want only to hoard the world's wealth & power for themselves.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Michael,

No, but pretending to give free money and aid while pocketing it and leaving the people to rot IS racist and exploitative.

Muhammad Rasheed - Dear Tyler,

Since only the racists benefit from never mentioning or challenging their evil, I'm actually doing the very opposite of encouraging racism by pushing their noses into it and forcing them to think about it. Getting racists triggered, and forcing them to come up with alternate ways to justify their evil is one of the ways to combat racism, as it forces the national Candid & Courageous Conversation that can eventually lead to some form of long overdue, once-n-for-all closure of some description. The race war you've mentioned very well may be that closure, since it took the American Civil War to grant me the rudimentary freedoms I currently enjoy. I think we both know that the racists will never willingly give up the benefits of their racist aristocracy, just as their ancestors refused to willingly give up the extremely lucrative slave institution.

There are FAR more poor whites on the gov assistance programs. Presumably to supplement their heroin addictions and food stamp fraud businesses.

Dear Daniel,

Within this society, Black people are economically excluded as a self-empowered political entity, forcing them to use all of their skills and talents to support their rival white culture. It's part of the "integration" scam that deliberately sabotages the efforts of an independent Black empowerment. Consequently, Blacks are forced to take the jobs you've listed just to have a basic life above the poverty line -- jobs that do little more than aid the oppressor in subjugating their fellow Blacks into a state ripe for further exploitation.

The historical record is full of Blacks working hard to make it, followed immediately by whites taking from them and plundering them to increase the wealth gap and prevent Blacks from coming together and using their wealth to elevate themselves as a group. The entire socio-economic class of Blacks who as a whole do little more than use their skills and talents to support white institutions are ultimately traitors to their own people.

Dear Jack, Bjarni & Lynn,

Your lack of respect for the lessons of history make you look foolish here. Remember the slaves fought in the American Civil War at odds even more lop-sided than they are now. Remember your ancestors had convinced themselves that it was impossible for the Blacks to show themselves as brave and canny warriors since you lot believed they were inherently designed to be chattel. The rudimentary freedoms I have today came directly from my ancestors' performance during the last civil war. lol All three of you sound crazy.

If you refuse to leave my people alone to build up our own wealth for our benefit and live free as full US citizens then of course a new civil war is not only a good idea, but it is the only option. Freedom is worth the spilling of blood.

All branches of the US military are heavily represented by Black people; many Blacks are combat veterans, and are far more experienced in battle than their ancestors were during the previous civil war. It seems like you all refuse to use basic logic and reason to formulate your racist opinions. We don't have to fire the first bullet; all we have to do is walk in our God-given freedom and refuse to play your games and you will attack to protect your white supremacist/anti-Black society. We will win again because ours is the righteous fight of the believing oppressed and have God on our side. We will stay in our current oppressed state as long as we foolishly believe that whites will somehow come to their senses and stop abusing us just because.

Dear Mikhail, Logan & Daniel,

As you can see in the cartoon itself,  it's the white racist figure who is using the term "reverse racism," not my character. That's YOUR term, not mine. Are you even capable of basic comprehension of your own racist foolishness? Or is this just one of your very weak gaslighting efforts?

To be clear, there is no such thing as "reverse racism." Western society is fundamentally structured to plunder and steal from Black people to support the centuries old white racist aristocracy. Efforts of Blacks to break free from this evil system, no matter how small, trigger whites into behaving the way you do here, acting in a kneejerk panic to steal my Freedom of Expression rights away.

Please improve.

Dear Joel,

Do you walk around with a bag of strawman effigies that you toss around willy-nilly like Mardi Gras beads? Because that's all you've done here. None of what you've typed here aligns to any kind of reality. The alt-right isn't interested in "Black genocide" because whites need the subjugated Black class to exploit of their wealth. They NEED Blacks to be the lowest socio-economic group so the poorest most raggedy whites will never be in that slot. In other words, without Blacks being artificially held down in that slot, the poor whites would take their defacto proper place as the abused footstools of the white elite.

Dear Joel,

1.) I am very much anti-Trump administration, anti-vote suppression, and anti-white supremacy. This is the angle that my political cartoons take. Obviously all of these angry white trolls who came to get my Art Page deleted off of Facebook are far-right Trump supporters precisely because they didn't agree with my anti-far right Trump supporter message. lol Since my Freedom of Expression was attacked and my platform was removed because people exactly like you disagreed with it, that 100% made me a victim of you racist anti-American types.

I do think it's interesting that you think it's alright to attack me because you think you are a victim though.

Dear Javier,

I'm still trying to understand why people like you think this comment is relevant to anything, and why you think it's supposed to mean anything to me. Let's break it down:
  1. I posted an anti-racism cartoon that triggered a legion of white supremacist types who typically operate within a racist hive mind and support each other no matter what.
  2. Through sheer word of mouth, the cartoon spread around enough white supremacist circles to attract a sufficient number of their trolls to make anti-Black comments on my posts.
  3. The white supremacists who agree with the bolder trolls decided to 'Like' one of the anti-Black comments a troll made.
  4. Javier and other like-minds believe that the 'Likes' that the white supremacists provided in support of one of their own members somehow has a significant meaning more potent than the original cartoon that triggered them all into kneejerk action in the first place.
  5. You're an idiot. Take a bow.

Mo'Nique's Righteous Fight

Jeremy Travis - [FB VIDEO] Mo'Nique Explains Her Side

Jeremy Travis
- So when Monique brought up this issue a few days ago, I didn't know the context and details and numbers behind it, so I just sat back and looked, listened, and learned. And the more I see, hear, and learn, the more I see that, not only does she have a well-stated, well-constructed, well-reasoned point, she also has a lot of people who couldn't care less about what she had to say, they just want her to shut the fuck up, DESPITE the fact that what she's saying and doing is correct and just.

Marlon Davis
- I think she has valid points. Especially after i seen a video compilation of Amy Schumer stealing jokes

Scootsie McKnickey
- MoNique literally has never done anything shitty or hurtful to anyone but for soooome reason niggas are aggressively coming for her. Im so confused

Muhammad Rasheed
- @Jeremy... I think it's an example of systemic racism/misogyny. Mo'Nique should be able to negotiate whatever she wants with the force of her talent, skill and accomplishments, but they were trying to keep her from that because they didn't want her to do it without playing the game their way. Compare her to Jerry Seinfeld, and see what he was able to negotiate for himself as a low-to-mediocre comedian. Why was he able to do what he did to gain the industry support that enabled him to become rich & famous the way he did? The gatekeepers and power-players allowed him to, but they didn't want Mo'Nique to do it and set a precedent with other Blacks. That game isn't designed for you. Only certain Blacks are allowed through that gate.

Scootsie McKnickey - Jerry Seinfeld literally has 0 talent and 1 show.  Its amazing how much bread white mediocrity generates

kreative_force - why didnt she try to get a special on KweliTv to begin with?

Muhammad Rasheed -Is that you on the left that's kicking her?

Muhammad Rasheed -You could just as seriously ask anybody that same question. Why do you think it's specifically relevant to Mo'Nique? lol Doesn't she have the right to try to negotiate whatever business she wants to try to get for herself?

kreative_force - its not a kick to her. She can't negotiate that with our own up and coming media outlet? I don't see the point in us repeatedly expecting other people's to allow us into their social order. Especially when we have our own that needs our attention. Then when they dont let one of us in or give us a lesser position/benfits we go back to our own people to try and fight our way in. C'mon. Netflix's ice ain't any colder than Kweli's.

kreative_force - Is she right to demand more $? sure. Is it smart to JUST do that? No. If she really wants to reach her audience we have a place for her to do that & she'll get the respect (and pay) she deserves. She shouldn't beg any network for a thing with all the years of work she's put into the industry.

Muhammad Rasheed -You make some good points, but they are based on projecting into her life decisions, goals and even into her plans. How do we know she didn’t negotiate with both NetFlix and the Kweli deal? How do we know she didn’t have several irons in the fire, and she protested the most high profile one that made the big news? 

We don’t know her business outside of what she allowed us to see; consequently I would prefer to confine our critique to what we do know since we are otherwise not privy to her business like that. She allowed us to see that which she was willing to discuss in a public forum, something she felt was worth discussing publicly. 

Also, bear in mind that it’s not normal to pursue your own brand under a Black-owned anything. That concept is actively frowned upon by white industry monopolizers AND Black people, and it’s certainly out of the box thinking in this day and age. What she SAW was two high-profile Black comedians and one mediocre, plagiarizing white woman comedian getting lucrative deals with NetFlix and she wanted to throw her hat into that ring, too. That’s a normal move. Out-of-the-box moves from Black creative people tend to come with a whole LOT of bs heat from Black critics, and not everyone is strong enough or willing to go in that direction. Tyler Perry’s success is enviable, but who wants to hear all that crabs-in-a-barrel shit from Black people about it? Oprah? JayZ? Dr. Dre? Will Smith? Every time a Black celebrity makes those kinds of power moves that they are supposed to make, the Black community acts a friggin’ fool about it. So if going to Kweli’s first wasn’t Mo’Nique’s first thought, whose fault is that? Hers? I wouldn’t think so.

Muhammad Rasheed - I suspect she also wanted to make up for the lost time and show up with her own lucrative and vindicating power-move like Chappelle did. I'm more disappointed at the crazy way Blacks are responding to her than I am at her not getting the deal she wanted.

Walking Down the Time

Muhammad Rasheed - As I sit here patiently counting down the time to when I’ll be released from my Facebook ban, I analyze the specific technique used to silence my efforts to use my art to fight the diabolical White Supremacist Ideology and its willing supporters. I posted a cartoon which illustrated a point I made during a #WhenTheAliensCome discussion, and over the next few days a legion of white supremacists showed up to complain and ridicule me. Nearly drunk on all of the triggered drama they provided for me to cartoon later, it didn’t take long before I was banned the first time for 24 hrs. I promptly sent a protest report to Facebook to let them know I was an editorial cartoonist who was being harassed by extremists weaponizing their auto-report system to monopolize Freedom of Expression for themselves. My note was either ignored by FB Admins who were of like-minds to my dedicated enemy, or my complaint was simply too far down in the queue to do me much good. In any event, only a couple hours or so after that ban I was banned again, this time for seven days, in which I now count down the remaining hours.
Once banned, the white supremacists immediately started filling up my cartoon with taunts and vitriol to which I couldn’t immediately respond. To my delight though, I found that I still retained the ability to delete posts and ban people! I used this power freely to prevent the enemy from controlling the narrative of what was going on, removing all posts that (“Well, actually…”) sought to matter of fact proclaim lies as definitive truths to indoctrinate the readers.  Not on MY page you’re not. I left all the comments though that I intended to address within the short time I had before being banned again, which I fully expect since the nature of the attack is pure cowardice. One of my favorite comments I read once the enemy realized I was deleting posts from my invisible-silent realm, was one protesting how unfair it was that I didn’t allow this virtual army of racist trolls to say whatever they wished on my Art Page while I was otherwise unable to address their toxic caucasity directly using my preferred weapons. Isn’t that one of the most classically WHITE things you’ve ever heard? The virtual lynch mob of legions of trolls said it was “unfair” that I used what little tools I had at my disposal to defend myself from their literal attack on my Right to Freedom of Expression. lol This is a sliver of the amazing nonsense we have to deal with on the grander scale as African-Americans.
Although I don’t expect to have very much time as a free man once this 7-day ban is lifted (I wouldn’t be surprised if they flagged/reported every single cartoon in my Art Page folio in efforts to get my entire account deleted), I don’t consider this a loss. The fact that they got triggered and came on the run… from pure word-of-mouth mind you… meant that my work is doing what it was intended to do: Speak truth to power and force them to do some form of damage control to cover up their newly-bared asses for the documented record. The actual content of what they say doesn’t matter very much (they lie as their first language and can never be trusted, since they only care about supporting white supremacy at all costs), but the fact that they protest at all says volumes and lets me know the mission of my art is successful. If they said nothing at all it would be one thing, of course, but they’re the ones that ironically invented the term “triggered” in this context, and it’s only the hurt dog that yelps.
So what is my mission? Outside of basic entertainment, my cartoons adhere to 3 Prime Directives, which are as follows:
1.)   To Make the Complex Simple. I believe this is true of all art, and especially the cartoon media and its naturally inherent emphasis on glyphs, short-hands and symbols.

2.)   To Decode the Objectives & Methods of White Supremacy. The main tool of racists is their propaganda – using gaslighting, repetition of nonsense, subliminal imagery, and other indoctrination techniques – to encode their toxic message into everyone. They indoctrinate themselves to justify their actions and convince themselves it is okay (in fact, their DUTY!) to exploit and plunder Black people. The video below from Agyei Tyehimba describes the specific role of my art best.

[EXCERPT] 5 Types of Black People Needed in the Black Liberation Movement by Agyei Tyehimba

3.)   To Make the Oppressor Class Uncomfortable. As Ta-Nehisi Coates points out in the vid below, the racist aristocracy doesn’t get to comfortably enjoy the loot plundered from Blacks. To allow them that comfort is to throw in the towel of cowardice, and hope they toss us a crumb. No. If you aren’t triggering them and refusing to take their bs seriously then you are just as wrong as they are, and count as the “good friends” who allowed evil to rage about with your silence. The fight is a righteous fight.
I don’t know if I’ll end up losing my Facebook account in the end, but there are other social media outlets, and other means of distributing my work. What are the chances that FB will make their reporting system less white racist lynch mob friendly in the near future? This is a perfect example of the need for Black-owned media safe spaces, free of the sabotaging reach of the white racist fake patriots.

Extraterrestrial Rude Awakening

Riaan van Niekerk - #WhenTheAliensCome a lot of people will be changing their religious beliefs

Melanin Monroe - Why? Just cuz God created life here doesn’t mean he can’t do it elsewhere. That’s always been my take ♀️

Riaan van Niekerk - Could possibly be.

Muhammad Rasheed - In the Qur'an, God refers to Himself as "Lord of all the worlds," so I'll be straight. It's the folk who think the earth is only 6,000 yrs old who'll have the issues.

Omar Diaz - Or that we came from monkeys...

Muhammad Rasheed - I'm sure the evolutionists will pull some kind of spin out of their butts, until the aliens confirm that melanin is friggin' AWESOME. Then they'll declare war on the aliens and pretend they are an invading force.

They'd rather destroy the whole planet than deal with THAT shit. lol

Omar Diaz - You're absolutely right. Funny enough, people of faiths will be more accepting of alien life than evolutionists and agnostics. #teamaliens

Matt McKinney - wow, calling white people monkeys? That's not racist at all

Muhammad Rasheed - White people invented the concept of "humans evolved from an ape-like common ancestor" and labeled humans "primates."  Obviously they WANT to be monkeys, so how is it racist that I call them what they want to be again?

Matt McKinney - If humans evolved from monkeys, that means that white and black people evolved too. But in this comic, the black people are shown to be KINGZ while white people are attacked and name-called. It’s not hard to admit your prejudice!

Muhammad Rasheed - Humans didn't evolve from monkeys. Whites invented the concept because they wanted to separate themselves from the Book of Genesis origins of the species. They're the ones that want to be monkeys, so I called them that in the cartoon. So how am I being racist?

Matt McKinney - Well you also admit in one of your other comics that it’s ok to hate white people, because they’re the ones who are “systematically oppressing you”

Muhammad Rasheed - lol Are you actually equating white people with white supremacy? Because the latter is the only thing that deserves hatred. Is this what you are admitting in public? That they are in fact one and the same? Tell me.

Matt McKinney
- How is there white supremacy exactly? Cause so far, all I’ve seen white people being seen as a negative trait by the media and racists cartoonists like you

Muhammad Rasheed‏ - All that means, Matt, is that you haven't studied the topic. You believe political talking points are the alpha-n-omega of the issue.

Matt McKinney - Yeah I haven’t studied enough books that tell I’m the devil for being white. And that everything is my fault. I should really catch up on that

Muhammad Rasheed‏
- Admitting to the deficiency is the first step in curing it.

Matt McKinney - I haven't done anything to any person whatsoever based on their skin color. It's racist to assume that all members of one singular race are responsible for everything wrong with your life. "It's all the whites fault!" It's all the blacks fault!" It's the same shit.

Muhammad Rasheed‏ - Matt, it's clear that you have done no research into this subject to even know what the facts are, so your attempts to shut down the people who are read up on the topic absolutely contribute to a white supremacist culture. I'm genuinely sorry to see you gaslighting. It's racist.

Matt McKinney
- Gaslighting is the new term to describe when somebody is proving you and your flawed beliefs wrong

Muhammad Rasheed‏ - lol You're doing it again, Matt.

Matt McKinney - You really don’t have anything to say

Muhammad Rasheed‏ - Oh, is THAT why you're doing all of this triggered trolling on my Tweets? Because I'm NOT saying anything. #SeemsLegit

Matt McKinney - Oh I’m trolling huh? Yeah, people who don’t agree with your racist bullshit don’t have legitimate problems with it, they’re just TROLLING!!

Muhammad Rasheed‏ - Especially once they admit in a public forum that they are unlearned on the topic of discussion, while passionately opinionated about it from a base of willful ignorance. That's the tool kit racist trolls often bring with them.

Fake Fight: Jeff Sessions versus States' Rights

Joy Reid - [The Atlantic] Jeff Sessions's Unqualified Praise for a 1924 Immigration Law

Joy Reid - Donald Trump, Jefferson Sessions, Stephen Miller, Michael Anton (AKA Publius Decius Mus)... these people aren’t complicated. They are the pro-Apartheid white South African, the “Rhodesian,” the Confederate holdout... the George Wallace voter in the 60s...

Muhammad Rasheed - That's why this marijuana battle between Sessions vs States' Rights looks suspicious as hell. I think it's a set-up.

TeeKay - If it’s illegal, they can have more arrests and be sent to Session owned prisons. Cha-ching!

Muhammad Rasheed - There's that, but there's also the traditional pro-racism aspect of the States' Rights position. If they successfully push back against the federal gov  because Sessions allows them to  it'll create a dangerous precedent that could be the true aim of both sides.

The Fed built up its power specifically because of the States' pushback over the civil right's fight during the last 150 yrs. There's no way this Sessions vs States' Rights pot battle isn't a smokescreen scam. I predict the two will create some form of "States' Rights Sovereignty Bill" from this song-n-dance, enabling them to bring jim crow or slavery back or something similarly crazy whether its illegal on the federal level or not.

Notes While Observing: The Sloppiest Cover-Up of All

Muhammad Rasheed - I read a potent post from a Black activist about a month or so ago that asked if white Black History scholars ever considered the Black scholars that were now left out because of the space they are filling. I made a note that it was an excellent point, but kept it moving. I remembered her point later when I picked up a couple of excellent Black History books that happened to have been written by white men.

As I meditated on the idea of this, I noticed that they weren’t “just” excellent books; they were actually the definitive works on key subjects within the history of systemic racism, with the establishment throwing every major literature award at them and holding them and their books up as THE works. The authors were also from the Jewish community. Combined with the very ugly controversy surrounding Dr. Tony Martin’s infamous public battle with that community – which showed them in a very bad light indeed – it revealed a pattern that was as disappointing as it was “smdh” sloppy and silly looking.

Here are a few significant areas where the dots connect in my notes:
  • Despite the ridiculously, casually ample primary-sourced evidence of the Jewish community’s key role in establishing and driving the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, they vehemently deny it with a wild-eyed red face. There’s nothing else they can do about all of this evidence since it’s out in the world and everywhere. They stand by this insane denial to the point where they literally destroyed the credibility of a major institution, using it as the mouth piece to publicly proclaim that the historical facts that prove beyond the shadow of doubt that they absolutely were major players in anti-Black slavery should be ignored, and everyone should instead believe their denials just because they said so.
  • The 1906 edition of the Jewish Encyclopedia, described by The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives scholars as "the most monumental Jewish scientific work of modern times," doesn’t mention Black people. In all of its entries and articles, following the Jewish diaspora throughout the ages and around the world, and featuring their relationships with all other peoples, it very carefully barely mentions Black people. It barely mentions them in the entry for Ham, son of Noah, whom the Talmudists took pains to use as their justification for why it was okay to target Blacks for slavery. That entry’s writers clearly were reluctant to talk about Blacks even in that context, and did so as sparingly as they could get away with. “Black people? I’m afraid I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
  • Outside of all the evidence of their hands being on the slave trade itself, all the other key points in the development of anti-Black systemic racism have a group of celebrated, award-winning Jewish scholars who have taken ownership of the scholarship, and you’ll find THE definitive works on those sub-topics penned by them with impressive and comprehensive readable information… except for one conspicuous part: The record has been scrubbed of their involvement. 

I’m not a Nazi, so I have no desire, nor is there reason for me to harp on this item at length, but I do feel compelled to say something about all of this to the Jewish community members that may read this: What you want me to believe about your role in anti-Black racism is completely unreasonable based on the facts of history, as well as how you currently behave regarding it. I honestly can’t tell whether you are really being this ridiculously sloppy with this cover-up attempt, or you just feel arrogantly confident in your powers while thinking I’m just that stupid. It clearly looks like you want to simultaneously deny your history of exploiting and plundering Black people throughout history up into the modern day, while you continue to do it in the classic “have my cake and eat it, too” model. My guess is that the allure of the wealth is just too much to resist, but you still want to play this “We're friends of the Blacks because we are both a persecuted peoples” type role. It looks slimy and slippery and just BAD. It’s not fooling anyone… people HAVE to see all of this, but they just go along with it because they don’t want to be on your bad side and get the “anti-semite” label slapped on them as punishment, which of course is unfair and evil.

My advice is that you just come clean. Publicly put everything on the table, admit for the record that yes, you did jizz on your stomach while pretending you didn’t, and work out some kind of apology/make-up with the African-American community, and yes, this should involve a wealth transfer (You know what I mean). Otherwise this is going to end crazy as there’s only so much abuse people can take. There is a natural breaking point to these actions, and you are well aware of them. I would imagine that it’s this very same “have my cake and eat it, too” habit that’s responsible for the centuries-long trend of people eventually getting fed up and chasing you out of their countries in a murderous mob that you bemoan all the time. I strongly suggest you seize the trends of your history by the horns, and do something different this time. Stop what you are doing, come clean, cease plundering the wealth and sabotaging the empowerment efforts of Blacks, and be the true friend that you currently just pretend to be in order to get close to them. Build your wealth by empowering Blacks instead of stealing from them. Reflect your status as a believing people by creating safe spaces for them to do lucrative business as a generous empowering force, and not a monopolizing hoarder.

I sincerely hope you take this note to heart, and it eventually leads to a change in your minds and actions for the better.



Roger Crownover - Exactly...a white of us vs. them type of sense for the teaching oh how it should be done , in not a humanist way of things and history........funny how the real mis-treatment of fellow humans bubbles up to the top of the teach heap ..

Clayton Elmy - Goldstein isn't a white name

Muhammad Rasheed - @Clayton... lol Of course it is. It's certainly not an African or Middle Eastern name, innit?

Muhammad Rasheed - What is it then? Japanese?

Chris Merck - this rasheed nut is antisemite

Muhammad Rasheed - I'm not an 'anti-semite' just because I pointed out that -stein isn't African nor Middle Eastern, snowflake. Man-up, please.

Etienne Lacour - First people to create slavery were africans and egyptians, first people to put an end to it were white people, yet there are still some cases of slavery in nowadays' sub-saharian africa.

Muhammad Rasheed - The first people to turn human trafficking into a mega-corporate super-business were white people. The first people to permanently delegate chattel along racial phenotype were white people. The first people to legally say a people weren't human so they could keep them in bondage were white people. The first people to claim to abolish slavery, but merely called it something else while continuing to keep those same people in an exploitative state, all while pretending they weren't still doing it, are white people.

But thanks for playing.

Etienne Lacour - Nice PoV though.

Going Deep: Learning to Recognize the Truth

fitchick007 - "Beliefs can't change facts. Facts, however, should change your beliefs."

fitchick007 - Boom!

Muhammad Rasheed - Remember that time when I laid out the facts as to why the legend of Noah wasn't fiction and you rejected it in favor of your anti-religion beliefs? #GoodTimes #BoomToo

pharoah_resurrected - @M. Rasheed... what are anti religion beliefs?

Muhammad Rasheed - @pharoah_resurrected... ln the context of a few brief discussions l had with the OP, 'anti-religion' was in reference to her penchant for uncritically rejecting the entire kit-n-kaboodle of the Abrahamic message.

pharoah_resurrected - @M. Rasheed... with study some of the abrahamic religion was stolen from Kemet and other earlier civilizations . Just like today many of our customs have been taken from us so this isn't a surprise that history repeats itself. Also much of the Abrahamic religion has been changed.

Muhammad Rasheed - The tradition of naming the message after the prophet Abraham does tend to cause a lot of doctrinal confusion. The last books within the One God's revealed scripture came through the two nations of Abraham's seed, but that doesn't mean the message of God began with the Semite patriarch. As God explains in the scripture, the message was first revealed to the very first humans, and prophets throughout human history and all around the world, were anointed to preach it. The shades of the message that are reflected still within the records of ancient Kemet's relics don't represent a theft, but instead represent the evidence of the long forgotten prophets of the One God that were raised up among the ancient Egyptians to return them to the pure message that the antediluvian Neter once knew.

pharoah_resurrected - Which God would this be because their are over 4000 religions yet only one devil. Also the scripture is to be taken on an esoteric level. For example the whole Abraham story is an allegory

pharoah_resurrected - King Khufu is the Noah story that the bible plagiarized.

pharoah_resurrected - The two of each animal is symbolic of the two sets of chromosomes in the body

fitchick007 - @pharoah_resurrected... Wow

pharoah_resurrected - To accept these stories would been to accept the discrepancies and I've been told God makes no mistakes

pharoah_resurrected - Also it is clear the God of the old testament is not the same as the new testament. More likely the demiurge of this earthly plane

pharoah_resurrected - The whole Noah story sets up to the theory of how blacks were made by curse through Noahs children. Do to believe this story is to curse oneself.

fitchick007 - @M. Rasheed... Do you know anything about your actual African based spirituality or just the religion used to justify slavery and Black people being the cursed people??? Any concept of our Orishas?

Muhammad Rasheed - @pharoah_resurrected... There is only One God. The “4,000 religions” you’ve referenced were founded by people rightly-guided by the One God’s messenger, and over generations, their descendants were allured by the pagan taint that threw them off the path. Over and over and over again, God would anoint new prophets to re-align the people back to The Path once they had strayed. This was an old game – between God, the people, the message, the adversary and the prophets – played out on the global stage for the estimated 3 million years humans have been on this world.

Muhammad Rasheed - @pharoah_resurrected… lol Khufu was FAR younger than the prophet Noah (peace be upon him). Khufu was a Fourth Dynastic figure who ruled during the 26th century B.C. Noah lived just prior to the Younger Dryas event which took place 12,800 years ago.

Muhammad Rasheed - @pharoah_resurrected… Noah was one of several figures during the 1,300 yr long time period the One God charged to save that which was worth saving before the coming global cataclysmic smashed humanity down to the Stone Age. Some of those prophets were no doubt Masters of the Sciences, and probably did save the recorded information represented by the “two sets of chromosomes.” But they all also saved one male and one female of each animal they required for sustenance, as well as the domesticated grains and plants they had cultivated.

Muhammad Rasheed - @pharoah_resurrected… God makes no mistakes, but humans make mistakes all the time. Even those humans charged with protecting the integrity of the message God revealed to save humankind from his base nature and the temptations of the adversary. The taint and error that humans have allowed into the previous scriptures was corrected by God as preached by the newly-anointed messengers who also confirmed and fulfilled what came before. Our job is to study the material to learn how to discern truth from error, as abandoning the scripture to embrace pagan taint is to both embrace the error, as well as demonstrate a lazy-sloppiness in scholarship and a hatred for truth.

Muhammad Rasheed - @pharoah_resurrected… The New Testament books were written by Paul the Usurper and his evangelicals, and are merely the most recent demonstration of humans allowing pagan taint to infest the pure message of the One God. God confirmed that the message revealed to the Christ Jesus, son of Mary was indeed pure, but it was Paul who seized it, twisted it into a barely recognizable falsehood to be more palatable to the tribes of Europe. Your “demiurge” comment gives Paul and them too much credit, and even sounds like you’ve tipped over into your Gnostic studies in the effort.

Muhammad Rasheed - @pharoah_resurrected… The One God confirms that Noah was one of the righteous messengers and an excellent prophet for us to emulate, so I reject the “laid up drunk and naked” tale out of hand. With that being said though, the concept of Noah’s son being ‘cursed’ to father the Black race is not in the OT, but is fleshed out within the Talmud, as it was the Caucasoid Jew that used it to justify his version of the slave trade and eagerly regurgitated by Christian slave owners once heard for the same purpose. Both versions of the Noah tale are false; the prophet was a willing and dedicated servant of the Most High God of reality, who submitted his whole will to his Lord and knew Peace.

Muhammad Rasheed - @fitchick007… Since the Black peoples of the African continent are the oldest people on earth, most of the unknown prophets the One God referenced from deepest antiquity were indeed the origins of “African-based spirituality.” In the usual fashion, as humans are want to do for untold aeons, they were the first to cover over the pure message of their Maker with pagan taint, requiring continuous correction from newly-anointed prophets raised up among them over the ages. The rebelliousness of the Hebrews chronicled in the scriptures carried by the Semite nations were merely the latest versions of a drama that had already been played out in the human story, revealing little more than not only is there nothing new under the sun, but that we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past since we never seem to learn the lessons.

fitchick007 - @M. Rasheed... Seriously all that sounds like whaa-whaa-whaawuuu. Pure brainwashing. Do u identify with your African roots, or do you believe we are cursed people as made popular by that bible with the white sky daddy?????

Muhammad Rasheed - @fitchick007… If it sounds like “whaa-whaa-whaawuuu” to you, then you should study more and then engage when you are better prepared, Queen (see: ‘beliefs vs facts’ quote above)

fitchick007 - @M. Rasheed...  *BLOCKED*

Fear of Abandonment: Motivations for the Origins of White Domestic Terror

Muhammad Rasheed - The "promise to the white working class" that Bernie Sanders is so focused on as his top priority, is the newly politically correct language for the old pact between the white elite and the poor whites. This is the pact that created "race, racism, and whiteness" that lays as the USA's enduring sin against Black people.

Back in 1619, there was a lot of North American wilderness that needed to be tamed, and the invested moneyed class needed a bondsman class to work it. The poor whites and the Blacks were in the role of indentured servant and slave at the time, but the poor whites were feeling some kind of way about that. They had already spent centuries – even millennia – being the go-to abused stooges for the white elite whenever they needed some labor done. In the unlimited potential of the New World's frontiers, the poor whites decided they didn't want to be in that role anymore, and over the next 230 yrs, the historical record of national policy reflected that the white elite agreed their poor skinfolk didn't have to.

The whites covenanted across class and political party lines to make Blacks the permanent slave class, creating 'racism' as we know it. Now the poor whites would be forever free of being the go-to abused stooge of the white elite as long as this covenant was maintained. Within the new white supremacist society, it was the poor whites themselves who were in charge of managing that system and holding it together in their favor. They knew that ultimately the white elite really didn't care WHO was in that bondsman class, just as long as their gravy train didn't stop. Somebody was going to be in that role and they allowed the poor whites to manage that part, vowing not to do anything that would sabotage the poor white efforts. At a certain point, the whites decided to expand the slave holding states and share the wealth by giving the most industrious of poor whites free lands and the opportunity to pull themselves up out of poverty as freshly-minted slave owners.

President Abraham Lincoln of course said "No," and the slave holders decided to secede and form their own nation to continue their plans. The president said, "Hell, no," and then there was a war.  To end what was to become the bloodiest war in American history, Lincoln played the Ultimate Trump Card by abolishing slavery. In other words, he dissolved the "Blacks as permanent bondsman" concept that not only held together the 'whiteness-by-way-of-antiBlackness' social contract, but was the very source of the 1% white elite wealth!

Once the war was over, the white elite weren't thinking about their pact with the poor whites, since they were desperately trying to figure out how to keep their own income streams coming in. Sharecropping schemes and the proto-mass incarceration were the main ways they tried to salvage the old Black body exploitation racket that amassed the West's obscene wealth, but to limited success. In 1913, when the Money Trust conspired and succeeded in passing the Federal Reserve Act, starting the nation on the fiat-debt culture tract of today, then the 1% were finally able to recover fully. Over the next few decades, they were able to replace the slave institution wealth-building apparatus with a real estate/housing wealth-building apparatus (among other things) and their fortune was once again secured and growing.

Meanwhile, during the time when the white elite were trying to keep their legs from falling out from under their decadent lifestyle, the poor whites were FREAKING OUT! The Reconstruction Era was a nightmare for them as they watched the newly freed Blacks emerge from their shackles to become literate, property-owning, politicians... and they were GREAT at it. The poor whites thought that it was just a matter of time before they replaced the Blacks as the 1%'s abused stooges again, and they went on a barbaric wave of domestic terror to sabotage the rapidly elevating Blacks at every rung they could reach. This emotional outburst of pure fear birthed the century-long Lynching Era, as the whites not only desperately tried to hold onto their artificially propped up status in the racist aristocracy, but they mourned the major come-up promised to them in that old pre-Civil War covenant with the white elite. Forced to live and work together as both races competed for jobs in the same factories across the nation, whites continued to release their pent up resentments with regular lynching parties.

Eventually the evil Lynching Era came to an end when the white elite used the credit system to enable the poor whites to receive their long ago planned come up into the middle class in the new segregated housing schemes that continue the trend of exploiting and plundering Black people. Now that they were once again assured that the "promise to the white working class" would be upheld by the white elite, the poor whites finally calmed down and only terrorized Blacks enough to maintain the status quo. When President Barack Obama was elected, the poor whites freaked out again, assured that the first African-American POTUS would once again dissolve the "Blacks as permanent bondsman" concept. Although he performed nothing so dramatic as that, president Obama did work hard to enable all of the country's poor to have the obstacles to economic upward mobility removed, which would by default aid the Blacks who were disproportionately affected by a system designed to punish the poor. Even though it would cut the throats of their own poorest members, the whites installed a white supremacist president to follow Obama to ensure that the little bit of upward trajectory gifted to Blacks would be repealed.

This summary is the nature of the systemic racism in the United States of America, and it should be clear that it will never be cured by talking, or appealing to anyone's innate sense of morality, justice or reason. The whites will never willingly release their anti-Black fueled monopoly of wealth & power since they not only refuse to share with Blacks as equals, they are afraid that if given that chance, Blacks will flip the system and rule over whites. They live in quiet terror over even the possibility of such an event, fearing the petty revenges that may be justifiably unleashed upon them by the small cliques among Blacks with less self-restraint. Consequently, every single thing whites say about Black people – whether it's in their political rhetoric, their opinions about Black social lives, their pseudo-scientific opinions about Black physiology in drug use, criminality, evolution, etc., etc., – are all lies designed to maintain their anti-Black, racist aristocracy. The only way this situation will change is to force them to leave you alone.

To do so I suggest you use the Black Boycott. Don't spend any money on white-owned product or services, and the white elite will absolutely want to negotiate. The first thing they will ask for, is for the middle & upper class Blacks to accept a bribe to look away so that they can continue to exploit the poor Blacks. WHEN you reject their offer and counter with:

  • Cease & desist ALL systemic racism against Black people
  • Pay Blacks Reparations for all wrongs done to Blacks from slavery to the present day
  • Leave Blacks ALONE forever
... then they will allow their poor white pitbulls to attack and the American Civil War 2.0  will begin. I personally think that the sooner we get this war over with the better, with one warning: If Blacks hope to win this war against what seems like impossible odds, I suggest you do so in the Name of the One God of Abraham. I know what you're thinking. You're going on about "but the white man's religion!" and "used to justify slavery!" and et cetera, but it's not what you think. He's not a believer as he pretends; he worships himself as the son of god and pinnacle of human evolution in a white supremacist-fueled fantasy he pulled out of his ass. It's a delusional side effect of the self-indoctrination needed to pull off the systemic racism described above. As long as you make sure to submit your whole will to the One God, the Supreme Creator of reality, you will always have the advantage and will be the victor no matter what. I promise.
