So, about this latest demonstration— at the expense of the famous Jackson clan— of the power of white folks to wreak havoc on black people. I shudder at the number of black people I know of who’ve had white folks tear the relations of their kin asunder with some title of “husband,” or “wife.” And, even if rarer, the same goes when they assume the title of “son” or “daughter.” They dominate everything with a wave of their pinky and are as bold as a blazing sun at 1AM. Just think about how a room full of black people goes quiet when talking about our number #1 problem as soon as one white guy/gal/child walks in or by. Imagine if that clog is in the pipeline of your kin. This is an excerpt from blackbluedog about such an incident:
“Michael’s daughter, Paris Jackson, is the subject of the most recent controversy in a complex drama that has involved Michael’s will, family fights and a feud for the ages. The battle allegedly came to a head when Janet slapped Paris and called her a “spoiled little b*tch.
In typical spoiled California teenager tradition, Paris (age 14) then slapped Janet back and said, “This is our house. Not the Jackson family house. Get the f*ck out!“
Translation: “Nigger, step back! We’re white. We’ll take it from here. Stay in your place if you know what’s good for you. Black people get shot for less than this. ((SLAP)). Got that?”
One of the best things about counter-racist codification is that words, whole paragraphs and sentences can be redeployed in similar circumstances and be just as effective. Very economical. And, when working from disadvantage, being economical in time and effort is essential. From my March 2010 commentary on these white heirs of Michael Jackson:
FROM MARCH 07, 2010
Neither cosmetic surgery nor chemical hair-straighteners change genetics. Would Michael Jackson’s genes plus those of a a blonde “Scandanavian” produce what you see above? Are those young persons above likely, despite all their words at the most recent Grammy award show about their “Grandparents,” likely to be white persons who do and/or will practice racism (white supremacy)? The Jackson clan might want to contact Mr. Mark Riding who was a guest on the C.O.W.S. (Context of White Supremacy) Blogtalk radio show. Mr. Riding is a black male raising a white child and, well, listen for yourself…( the most applicable clip is at 1:17:26 to 1:20:01)
Let’s replace white supremacy with justice.
