1) …and focus on their own child molesters and pedophiles they elected to federal and nationalist office.
Did anyone bother to take the time out to note all of those children -black and white- that Michael was around and his only accusers are white-skinned? How much time did he have on his hands that they were so VERY important that he was willing to risk a lifelong career to accommodate their wishes of being ‘with him’ with him?
They likely wished he’d had time to spend “hundreds” of hours of his life molesting them same two white boys when, after more than ten years of police investigations, they never dredged up an ounce of evidence. Expect to hear from them again in 2024, around the 15th Anniversary of Michael’s death when their hearsay puts him on trial for something the AUTHORITIES couldn’t even find, and damned if they weren’t LOOKING REAL HARD! These Bottom Feeder post-mortem accusers need the money. Bad.
2) They also need to stop calling anyone anti-Semite.
The only Semites in the world are Black people, and that includes Michael Jackson. So anything they do to us or say about us is anti-Semitical, and they do it 24/7 non-stop without fail. They get to be anti-Semite ‘all day every day’ when it comes to us Black folks, so they need to shut their pieholes about it. They are what they accuse others of being.
3) FYI: Black conscious folks are telling the truth.
You can complain about it, but you can never find the lie in what they say. Don’t wait until a white man says it to believe it, they do their homework. They only need to be corrected in some of their walk-back on the Bible and Christianity, for it was never a “white man’s book” or a “white man’s God” from Day One. It’s a part of our own DNA and inheritance just the same as the land, the silver, the gold, and the oil … and is just something else they took from us and claimed was their own. The “conscious” community needs to stop dogging Black Christianity. They need to learn, too.
4) Double FYI: Black Christians don’t need another “beef” in the Black community when it comes to so-called “woke folk.”
The Black church trying to protect memberships and monetary funds/oligarchist finance in a world where The Lord God never created nor instituted any religion in the first place is what makes Black “conscious” persons go nutso on this alleged ‘white man’s religion’.
There is no gain in the cause of Christ while fighting other Black people who are inspired to tell a truth that the Black church can’t, or won’t out of plain fear. We fight about enough, and we don’t need another village “Hero” or another topic to beat each other up about. What we need is workers in the field on ALL levels who respect the blood-stained banner of God/Allah/Jehovah just as much as they do that filth-ridden American drag flag and nationalist anthem.
5) Mega-church mentality is so 1980s.
The entire ruse that led from witchcraft and lies about God and godliness (Florence Scovel Shinn and Norman Vincent Peale, look ’em up), to prosperity gospels (Smith Wigglesworth, AZUSA Street, and Kenneth Hagin, look ’em up) to evangelicalism (i.e., ‘white nationalist supremacy covered in oppressive Jesus talk’) taking a WRITTEN stance against even the cause of Social Justice in the world is a hardcore problem where we need ALL HANDS ON DECK, from the socially and morally conscious to the prayers of the righteous and the faithful few.
It deflects and weakens the Gospel and makes what is right seem wrong and what is wrong seem right. It’s only purpose is to ‘tickle ears’ and support “faith-based racism” in the world. Walk away while you still can and go back to the early Bible Study days with NEW KNOWLEDGE about who you are and where you came from on origin. It’s time to stop playing head games about tithes … you can tithe all of your life and still end up broke. For “God is no respecter of persons” or personalities, and is certainly not a Vegas slot machine to pump prayers and 10-percent of your income into while hoping for a jackpot payoff in Christianity LaLaLand. If Joel Osteen’s actions in Houston and some of these other dollar-preaching shysters out here are not proof of what they are really all about, then we are most assuredly lost. It simply don’t work like that.
Tithes are for the Storehouse and equality of distribution to the Children of Israel and to the “foreigner gleaning at the gate”, not for the purpose of pastoral bling. I can’t be anymore proud of Pastors who figured it out a long time ago and still serve the community by working hands-on in their communities while sticking with faithful traditions at the same time.
Your grandparents had it right even if they didn’t know everything you know now. Go Home to your own people and your own land and OVERCOME. In this “nationalist” world, that is your only position of power left.
6) In the end, “it’s all about the Benjamins, baby.”
Yes, there is more to it than just money. It’s money, power, position and what white supremacist (nationalist) values will buy for you on the open market. We created them demons and then empowered them by cutting each other to shreds. If that isn’t the act of a coward, we will never know what is.
If they don’t create poverty, they will never be “rich.”
Never let it be said that there are no Black people given to outright cowardice, either. The act of First Man Adam, in fearfully blaming his Black wife, Eve, in the Garden of Eden, of throwing her ‘under several buses’ and trying to excuse himself from his own wrongs, for which he was blatantly responsible because he was there first and knew better … rather than taking responsibility for his sin and shortcomings, is what set off this whole mess we are living with now. He blamed her rather than apologizing and making amends and the world got turned backward and upside down and nothing has been the same since.
Temptation is powerful, and so is greed, jealousy/envy/hatred, and fear. The only thing we seem to respond to is money, because position and power is something we gave them and never took back, even after we saw they have no clue how to run a world. And still don’t, obviously. And we don’t take it back to its root origins in the world because we don’t want the job or the responsibility.
7) R. Kelly, Jussie Smollett, Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby, Prince…seems like everyone’s so-called “criminals” are in issue except for their own.
Stay focused. These distractions coming to us in the color or ethnic origins of Black that are not a problem on white skin (Trump, Epstein, Kraft, you probably can name all of their pedophiles, rapists, and child molesters faster than I can) are only meant to throw a dirty limp dishrag in the conversation so we can ignore the criminals in the White House. It’s meant to send us a ‘message’ about how white supremacy reigns in America no matter what we do, and the sad part is that President Barack Obama would never have seen this special brand of racism if he had never become President.
“They,” along with their own special brands of whores, pedophiles and child molesters that they can put on a formal, and a suit and tie and dress ’em up and make them look all “white official,” are dragging themselves into the gutters all alone, and all we’re doing is sitting back watching the Lord God beat them up one street and down another.
8) Don’t get all twisted up about who ‘we’ are based on a blood/spit DNA test.
We are monolithic when it comes to the racists/racism, but not when it comes to who we are and our place in the world.
We are both African and INDIGENOUS American.
We are Hebrew and Israel, and we are Ethiopian and Egyptian and even more than that, having mixed blood only less than 10,000 years ago in Greece and come up white in Rome. They also did kidnap “monkeys in the jungle” in Africa. You can look at the drug dealers and pimps and the cultural poverty of society’s crap rappers. and ‘baby mamas/daddies’ who happen not to be the white ones, and how quickly some of us are to obey racists as if we are still on plantations. How quickly we kill and disparage one another is a sign of a long beef between Cain and Abel that never ended.
Our attitudes and cultural proficiency sets us apart, not our money and what ‘hood we live in or what type of cars we drive.
Our ancestors were here AND there from the start and lived on this planet in CIVILIZED and uncivilized form nearly a quarter of a million years before a white face was seen on it. They have no resources or power that we didn’t give them, but when Black people start turning white skin into gods, it was never better said than this …
“God created Man, Man created white man, and when we disobeyed Him and chose white man to worship over God, He took them and shoved them dead in our asses and we’ve been stuck like this ever since. The End.”
That’s the entire Bible, with its centerpiece of the love of all mankind, and the Law and the Prophets…and the prophecies.
Some of us like being ruled by them, though. The main ones hollering about the ‘Bible and Christianity’, but who won’t give up the ‘white man’s’ money or his cars, houses, clothes and shoes and STOP FEEDING and ENABLING the “HE-MONSTER” … that’s a bigger problem than Michael Jackson -or- Jussie Smollett.
The fights stop here: Our many issues as Black people in this mental cesspool called America are only going to be resolved by three words: I LOVE YOU. Period.
Now prove it and throw all those other ‘shithole Americans’ in the ash heap where they belong and stop backstabbing each other to get what they got. It ain’t worth it. NONE of it. Own the responsibility and the healing all at once.
Ain’t but One God, and He made us first. Not for their hatred, but for own own love and empowerment of one another.
I’m not here to “beat up on Black folks,” or cause negativity and dissension. I’m here to spill the truth, such that it is.
Power, money and white nationalism: That’s all we are ‘subjected to’ and taken ‘subject to’ day in and out and apparently, we have not gotten truly tired of it just yet.
If I have it nailed down to a fine point and don’t have to go through numerous scads of details any more, it’s only because I’ve seen and experienced enough of it in a revolving cycle to repeat the hammered down words of The Preacher of the Book of Ecclesiastes: THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN.
In the words of our ancient Hebrew ancestors…
“Remember your Creator
in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come
and the years approach when you will say,
“I find no pleasure in them”—
2 before the sun and the light
and the moon and the stars grow dark,
and the clouds return after the rain;
3 when the keepers of the house tremble,
and the strong men stoop,
when the grinders cease because they are few,
and those looking through the windows grow dim;
4 when the doors to the street are closed
and the sound of grinding fades;
when people rise up at the sound of birds,
but all their songs grow faint;
5 when people are afraid of heights
and of dangers in the streets;
when the almond tree blossoms
and the grasshopper drags itself along
and desire no longer is stirred.
Then people go to their eternal home
and mourners go about the streets.
6 Remember him—before the silver cord is severed,
and the golden bowl is broken;
before the pitcher is shattered at the spring,
and the wheel broken at the well,
7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it.
8 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher.
“Everything is meaningless!”
The Conclusion of the Matter
9 Not only was the Teacher wise, but he also imparted knowledge to the people. He pondered and searched out and set in order many proverbs.
10 The Teacher searched to find just the right words, and what he wrote was upright and true.
11 The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails—given by one shepherd.
12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.
13 Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.
14 For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.
This is where SUPERSTITION about “white Jesus” ENDS and COMMON SENSE opens hearts, eyes and minds to know that good and perfect truth and what, exactly, is the will of God.
“The Thief cometh not but for to STEAL and to KILL and to DESTROY, but I am come that you might have life and have it more abundantly.”

The Persecution of Michael Jackson
By ISHMAEL REED
Last Thursday, while working on some writing deadlines, I was switching channels on cable.
On CNN they were promoting �Black In America,” an exercise meant to boost ratings by making whites feel good by making blacks look bad, the marketing strategy of the mass media since the 1830s, according to a useful book entitled �The Showman and the Slave,� by Benjamin Reiss. The early penny press sold a �whiteness� upgrade to newly arriving immigrants by depicting blacks in illicit situations. By doing so they were marketing an early version of a self esteem boosting product. One of the initial sensational stories was about the autopsy of a black woman named Joice Heth, who claimed to be George Washington�s nurse and over one hundred years old.
It was the O. J. story of the time. Circus master, P. T. Barnum, charged admission to her autopsy, which attracted the perverted in droves. And so, if the people broadcasting cable news appear to be inmates of a carnival, there is a connection since the early days of the mass media to that form of show business.
According to Reiss, early newspapers were not only influenced by P. T. Barnum, but actually cooperated with him on some hoaxes and stunts.
I would classify CNN�s �Black in America� as a stunt.
In preparing for a sequel to the first “Black In America,” which boosted the networks ratings (the O. J. trial saved CNN!), CNN rolled out the usual stereotypes about black Americans.
Unmarried black mothers were exhibited, without mentioning that births to unmarried black women have plunged since 1976 more than that of any other ethnic group. Then we got some footage that implied that blacks as a group were homophobes even though Charles Blow, a statistician for The New York Times, recently published a chart showing that gays have the least to fear from blacks.
Recently, the media perpetrated a hoax that blacks were responsible for the passage of Proposition 8, the California proposition that banned gay marriage. An academic study refuted this claim, but that didn�t deter The New York Times from hiring Benjamin Schwarz to explain black homophobia. Schwarz is the writer who wrote in The Los Angeles Times that blacks who were victims of lynchings in the south were probably guilty.
In the last �Black in America,” Soledad O�Brien, CNN�s designated tough love agent against the brothers and sisters, scolded a black man for not attending his daughter�s birthday party. The aim of this scene was meant to humiliate black men as neglectful fathers. Ms. O�Brien won�t be permitted by her employees to mention that 75% of white children will live at one time or another in a single parent household and that the Gov. of South Carolina�s not showing up for Father�s Day isn�t just a lone aberration in �White America.�
How would CNN promote a �White in America?�
The thousands of meth addicts who have abandoned their children? The California rural and suburban white women who do more dope than Latino and black youth? The suburban Dallas white teenagers who are overdosing on �cheese� heroin? Why not? Can�t get State Farm, Ford and MacDonald�s to sponsor such a program? All of these companies are sponsoring �Black in America,� the aim of which is to cast collective blame on blacks for the country�s social problems. For ratings.
During CNN�s carnival act disguised as news, the scene of Zimbabwe�s Prime Minster being urinated upon by a monkey while sitting in his garden drew snickers in the newsroom. This is what passes for coverage of the African continent by CNN.
When the bulletin that Michael Jackson had died flashed across the screen, I was prepared for TV at it�s worst and I wasn�t disappointed.
The man wasn�t cold before the familiar adjectives were rolled out. �Weird, bizarre, eccentric,� the traditional language used to disparage artists by the bourgeoisie. Dan Abrams, who made his reputation by convicting O. J. Simpson before the opening arguments of his criminal trial, made a snarky comment about Jackson�s weirdness. Mr. Abrams, a higher up at MSNBC, employs a Hitler admirer named Pat Buchanan. Given Abram�s background, why isn�t that considered weird?
Former Calfornia poet laureate Al Young called to inform me that CNN�s Jeffrey Toobin, another O. J. alumni, and a man who said that blacks shouldn�t be �patted on the head� or �patronized� for believing in O. J. Simpson�s innocence, had made some ugly comments about Jackson. (A star who has had at least a dozen facelifts called into the �Larry King Show� to comment about MJ�s altering his appearance).
Also weird was MSBC�s Savanah Guthries� air-headed depiction of the trial. (For a list of Ms. Guthries� false reportings see MediaMatters.com).
She said that the evidence against Jackson in the trial was �devastating.” So devastating that some legal experts said that Jackson should never have been brought to trial and that the aim of the trial was to seek a pound of flesh from Jackson for being uppity and for putting the name of Thomas W. Sneddon Jr., a vindictive District Attorney, into a song. In my opinion it was the prosecution of Jackson by this District Attorney, who, among other things, violated Jackson�s fourth amendment rights, and made disparaging remarks about the star during a press conference, and the side-show pro prosecution media coverage that killed Jackson.
In my lengthy examination of the trial printed in my book, �Mixing It Up, Taking on The Media Bullies,� I concluded that though millions of Jackson�s fans celebrated his acquittal, the District Attorney, who was allowed to squander the California taxpayers� money so that he might humiliate a rich black man, whom he felt had sassed him, was the victor. At the beginning of the trial, Jackson was dancing on top of a van. During the trial he had to be hospitalized. At the end, he was a frail emaciated wreck.
Because of the malicious prosecution of Jackson by Sneddon and Sneddon�s claque in the media, Jackson will always be regarded as a pedophile.
(When the trial opened, a USA Today / CNN / Gallup Poll found that 72% of whites and 51% of Blacks believed that the charges against Jackson were �Definitely� or �Probably� true.) Wherever �Mad Dog� Sneddon, this hateful man might be in his retirement, he can gloat over the death of the man against whom he waged a vendetta with all of the power of the state at his disposal. Sneddon even tried to introduce photos of Jackson�s genitals during the 2005 trial, which proved too much even for the pro prosecution judge.
Of course, none of Sneddon�s abuse or the abuse of Jackson by his accusers was mentioned by an old corporate media, out of touch and on life supports. For infotainers like Katie Couric, Jackson�s father Joe was MJ�s sole abuser. In the eyes of yesterday�s media, black fathers are the principal actors in domestic violence.
Guthrie also said that the prosecution �had conducted mini trials within the trial,� which brought up �a whole history of prior bad acts of molestation.� She was referring to 1994 case in which Jackson was accused of pedophilia by a youngster who, according to writer Mary Fisher, a serious journalist, was used by his father to wrest some cash from Jackson.
In”Mixing It Up,� I summarized Mary Fisher�s serious and thorough investigation that was originally published in GQ, October, 1994, under the title �Was Michael Jackson Framed?� Jackson settled out of court because Johnnie Cochran didn�t want him to face one of those all white suburban juries that O. J. faced.
Fisher wrote: �It�s a story of greed, ambition, misconceptions of part of police and prosecutors, a lazy and sensation-seeking media and the use of a powerful, hypnotic drug. It may also be a story about how a case was simply invented.�
Fisher claimed that the first case arose from the ambitions of the thirteen-year-old accuser�s stepfather, Evan Chandler, who exploited Jackson�s friendship with his son.
At one point, he asked Jackson to build him a house. Fisher said that the child denied being abused by Jackson until he was administered the drug sodium amytal, which is known to induce false memory. Chandler refused to be interviewed for the article and refused to appear on the Today Show, where Fisher repeated her charges before a nationwide audience. She said that the whole scheme was concocted by the child�s stepfather to destroy the superstar.
None of the media descriptions of Jackson�s career, including a superficial pop-driven survey of the star�s career by Anderson Cooper, referred to the 2005 plaintiff�s lies and his mother�s shabby history of conning individuals and institutions including J. C. Penney�s, which she accused of sexual abuse. She claimed that she had been �fondled inappropriately� by store personnel. Documents also hinted that ��the mom rehearsed her children to corroborate her story.�
During the 2005 trial, Jackson�s Attorney, Tom Mesereau Jr. got the teenage boy to admit that he lied under oath during the J. C. Penny case. USA Today reported on March 1, 2005, that the mother used the boy as a prop to get money from Mike Tyson, Adam Sandler, Jim Carrey, Jay Leno and others, �even though insurance was paying his bills.” Linda Deutsch, one of the last of hard-nosed shoe leather journalists, reporting for the Associated Press on March of 2005. said that Mesereau got the 15 year old to admit that he�d told Jeffrey Alpert, a school official that �nothing happened” between Jackson and him.
Connie Keenan, editor of Mid Valley News, wrote of a hoax that the boy�s mother perpetrated on that newspaper. She made a pitch that her son needed medical care and that she had no financial means to provide it. During the first week of the newspaper�s appeal, the mother received $965 in donations. It turned out that the boy was being treated at Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles with no cost to the family.
Connie Keenan concluded that �My gut level, she�s a shark. She was after money. My readers were used. My staff was used. It�s sickening.”
While referring to Jackson as �bizarre� none of the cable reporting about Jackson�s death cited the bizarre courtroom testimony of the plaintiff�s mother, Janet Arvizo. At one point during her testimony, she said that feared her children would disappear from Neverland, Jackson�s ranch, in a hot air balloon.
On Apr 18, 2005, Agence France-Presse reported �The mother of Michael Jackson’s young molestation accuser claimed that she feared her children would be spirited away from the star’s Neverland Ranch in a hot air balloon. In some of the most bizarre testimony of Jackson’s frequently surreal trial, the woman revealed that she told police she feared her three kids would vanish from Neverland into California’s blue skies.
“Did you tell the sheriff that you thought your children might disappear in a hot air balloon from Neverland?” Jackson’s lead lawyer Thomas Mesereau asked the woman under cross-examination.
“I made them aware,” she said.
Finally, in November of 2006, according to TMZ, Janet Arvizo pled no contest to a welfare fraud charge in Los Angeles.
She was ordered to 150 hours of community service and to pay $8, 600 in restitution. During Jackson’s trial, Arvizo invoked the Fifth regarding welfare fraud. Seems that she applied for welfare even though she�d received a $150, 000 settlement from J. C. Penny�s. Even with the mother�s behavior and the boys lies, Nancy Grace, commenting on the death of Jackson, said that she was surprised by the not guilty verdict in the Jackson trial. No wonder Ms. Grace has been called� a cheerleader for the prosecution.�
Yet, these journalists insist that their news product is superior to that of bloggers. (Journalistic bottom feeder, Diane Dimond, a Sneddon fan and Jackson stalker was invited by MSNBC to weigh in during which she was allowed to engage in doofus speculation much of it ugly about Jackson�s life and death)
G. Q. s Mary Fisher accused her colleagues of lazy journalism of the sort that defamed Jackson in life and in death.
Maureen Orth from Vanity Fair didn�t read Mary Fisher�s findings. She was on the Chris Matthews Show accusing Jackson of �serious felonies� involving pedophilia. Another reporter who seemed to nullify the 2005 Jackson jurie’s decision was �Morning Joe�s� adjunct bimbo, Courtney Hazlett. She said that there would be no pilgrimage to Neverland … as there was to Graceland, because �bad things happened at Never Land.”
We are led to believe that Presley and his entourage spent their days at Graceland drinking milk and reading each other passages from the scriptures.
All of these opinions seem to indicate that Cable�s talking heads have taken it upon themselves to nullify the judgment of juries whenever they please. This all white electronic jury has placed itself above the law.
But at least Jackson didn�t suffer from the kind of hi tech lynching accorded the tragic Patsy Ramsey. For years cable, which now not only calls elections but acts as judge and jury, accused her of murdering her child. Only after her death was it found that she was innocent.
If the reporting on Jackson�s death by the media wasn�t salacious and ignorant enough, it didn�t get any better the next day, June 26.
Ignoring Jackson�s philanthropic pursuits and contributions to forty charities, on the �Today Show,� it was all about what happened to all of the nigger�s money and whether he died from too many drugs and what�s to become of his children, questions meant to attract the prurient.
Again, Diane Dimod was invited on to spread scurrilous unconfirmed rumors about the dead star. Some of the modern day carnival barkers like Chris Matthews expressed surprise that Jackson�s death resulted in such an outpouring of worldwide mourning. This is what happens to people like Matthews who dwell in an insulated white supremacist bubble (that includes the Anglo wannabe and Churchill admiring Irish among them) which holds that a narrow cultural strip between New York and Washington represents the world.
I would like to have seen more independent African-American journalists comment on the passing of Michael Jackson, but, according to Richard Prince, who runs a media blog for the Maynard Journalism Institute, hundreds have lost their jobs over the last two years, including Pulitzer Prize winners like Les Payne.
With the absence of black and Latinos from journalism, the media have become a spare all-white jury always ready to take down a black celebrity for the entertainment of the types who used to attend those acts created by P. T. Barnum.
