Racism is Alive & Kicking (STILL) at Ole Miss

Watch….

This video was posted by two University of Mississippi students  in response to Ole Miss’s decision to stop playing its traditional fight song From Dixie With Love due to the words chanted by Ole Miss fans at the end of the song.  The words  “The South Shall  Rise Again”  caused some people to feel that the song was supporting segregation. The University decided to stop the band from playing the song during football games.

The two students have since been suspended from the university.

BGT Thoughts:  Disgusted, yes….suprised, no!

Once again in the good ole state of Mississippi a few of the good ole boys have decided to show their true colors. In response to Ole Miss’s Chancellor Dan Jones enforcing the decision to not play the song From Dixie with Love at the football games due to the words “The South Shall Rise Again” being chanted at the end of the song, these two young men douchebags decided that they would record their thoughts on the decision and post the video on YouTube for the world to see.

Notice how eagerly they say the word nigger, must have learned that at home home huh?

For some people the words:

The South Shall Rise Again

holds no particular meaning, but for those who know anything about The South you know that a chant of those words means, we welcome segregation, bring on the white robes and confederate flags. The saying is defined in Wikipedia as:  A slogan popular with the KKK and other old Confederate factions after the  of American Civil War 1861-1865

 The big problem is not so much with the slogan itself even though it carries along with it a history of hate and racism. It is the idea that those who use it know very well that the slogan is linked to segregation and hate yet they choose to use it anyway. They choose to chant it proudly because of one ultimate reason, and that reason being that they totally agree with what it is linked to. These two students proved that with their ignorant YouTube rant.

Things never seem to change in Cotton Land smh.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, racism is very much alive and kicking. There is always someone ready and waiting to prove it!

BGT on Interracial Relationships (nothing personal)

…should I tread carefully…nah I never have before lol

5680865_1580914For those who have followed my past blogs, you know that I have had my arse chewed and handed back to me when it comes to my views on interracial dating. Example 1 and Example 2.  I have been called racist (yep! me! racist! ) I have been called ignorant and a list of other things that made me giggle. All because I have stated that I am not interested in dating anyone outside of my race.

Excuse me for thinking that I can date who I please and get away with it! Excuse me for blogging about why I date black men exclusively! Excuse me for saying that I loves me some black men and have no interest in dating outside my race. I never knew that it was mandatory to be open to interracial dating 😐

Well when I heard about this story I raised my eyebrow and said “hmmm, that’s disturbing, AND it has to be breaking some kind of law, isn’t it?”

Now those ppl who gave me a few words back on the BGT blogs about my interracial dating posts, would say that I would agree with this, but I don’t. My view is this: Date/marry whoever you like, but as for BGT I will date black men and black men only. I don’t  have to be open to dating outside of my race and I don’t have to be excited about other people dating outside of their race. Personally it has nothing to do with me, but as for me, I will stick with my black brothas.

BUT I do not believe that there should be any law that can determine what race of person you marry. That is utterly ridiculous and Keith Bardwell needs his ass sued for this. He says his denial of the marriage license to the interracial couple was based on his experience with interracial marriages and the fact that they do not last long. He went on to say that he is looking out for the children.

Bullshit Keith!

This statement is the one that screamed out racist douchebag

I’m not a racist. I just don’t believe in mixing the races that way,” Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. “I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else. 

  -Keith Bardwell

Keith that statement alone says that you are a racist. You are so racist you could be Rush Limbaugh’s play cousin. It is from MY personal experience Mr. Bardwell that when a white person starts a statement off with “I’m not racist” and throws in “I have black friends” you had better watch out because their KKK robe is hanging in the hall closet waiting on the next rally. And did he say mixing of the races? That is some Mississippi Slave Master talk if I ever heard any.  This happened in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana so thats close enough I guess.

The couple plans to consult the U.S. Justice Department to file a complaint and rightfully so.

Preconceived Notions About Race

szo0130 I, just as many of you, have been guilty of looking at someone and assuming that they were a specific race. I mean let’s be real, many times you look at a person and not negatively, but just in a general sense you assume that they are African American or Caucasian or Asian.  This isn’t done in a harmful or judgmental way, but when you speak of that person or make a mental note, you may place them in a specific racial category.

This clip from the Tyra Banks show was very eye opening for me. At the beginning of the show Tyra had the audience to guess at what race or mixture of races the shows guest. Some of the guests were biracial, others were of only race, but they all had been placed into categories by their peers, associates and strangers just because of their physical features and overall appearance.

Here is the clip from the show

The first young lady who was mixed with African American and White really threw me for a loop when she said she didn’t like black people. I along with the audience chuckled and then gave that “what da heck” look. Because I like many of them, who without knowing her racial background would have assumed she was an African American woman. Then when she said that she was biracial, mixed with black and white, but she did not claim the black part of her identity, I knew then that she  was seriously infected with some kind of racial stigma. Because in order to say that you are black and white but you don’t like black people is seriously a problem within yourself. Not only was that young lady’s mindset ridiculous, but it was also saddening.

Another portion of the show, that unfortunately was not included in the clip was two black women, one with fair, light skin and the other with darker skin. They both spoke on the racial resumptions that are placed upon them because of their shade of black. The lighter skinned woman talked about how she didn’t really have friends growing up because many of the girls assumed she was stuck up or thought she was better than them because she was lighter skinned. The darker woman talked about how she always felt the need to prove herself because she was of a darker shade. Both women suffered the same ridicule and discrimination.

This cycle is one that has been ongoing within the African American race. However this episode of the Tyra Banks show demonstrated that this issue is one that abides in all races. Mexicans versus Puerto Ricans, Japanese versus Chinese and so on and so on. All over the world people see color before they hear, see or know anything else about a person. It is only normal to see skin color, but living by skin color is the problem.

KKK: White Power Meeting being held in the Midsouth

Blackgirlthinking personal thoughts in red

kkk2A KKK meeting is scheduled to take place in the Mid South, November 7, 2008 in Olive Branch, MS (good ole Mississippi, we see hasn’t much changed) The event was to take place at the Whispering Woods Hotel but the reservation has now been canceled by the hotel. Statements from the hotel state that they had no clue that the reservation booked by EURO Group was for a KKK meeting, they had no way of knowing that information. Whispering Woods Hotel and Conference Center also stated that they do not discriminate against any individual or group of individuals. To read the full statement from Whispering Woods Hotel and Conference Center click here —> statement

Well known KKK member David Duke stated that the Midsouth was chosen for the meeting because of its convenient location (plus it is in the south where negros were hung, bled and died for many years and cotton still grows plentiful) Duke who describes himself as a white civil rights advocate (I describe him as an overall  ignorant ass) says the conference aims to “issue a clarion call” for a white power movement across the United States.
Olive Branch Police plan to be on standby just in case the situtation turns violent or any other problems occur.

Here is my issue. Why in the hell is it legal to hold a meeting to discuss hate for non-white people, which may include discussion of violent actions. Which may also in turn include recruitment and other plans for nationwide violent activities to be planned and acted upon against African Americans. How is it legal in the year 2008 for the KKK to plan a KKK rally, announce it, book a hotel for the KKK rally and nothing be done about it. Oh well the police will be on standby ||wtf||

Things like this disgust me. If Obama had not won the election I could have closed my eyes and swore we were still in the 1700s.

Skinheads Plot to Kill Barack Obama & African Americans

When all else fails, and defeat creeps nearer plot to murder innocent African Americans, after all everything is their fault anyway!

I guess a plot to kill Barack Obama by the skinheads should be no surprise to me or anyone else. But regardless of the fact that it was to be expected, that makes it no less despicable and ignorant.

———————————–

Federal prosecutors have charged two men; Daniel Cowart and Paul Schlesselman with a plot to assassinate Barack Obama along with a killing spree that would involve murdering over 100 innocent African Americans. Both Schlesselman and Cowart are self-described white supremacists (aka dumbasses with less sense than God gave a rock) the plot included robbing a federally licensed gun dealer, beheading 14 African Americans and shooting countless others. The plot was to end with an assassination of presidential candidate Barack Obama, all to be done while Daniel Cowart and Paul Schlesselman wore white tuxedos and top hats.

-Between the two I wonder who came up with the brilliant idea of the tuxedos and top hats…that was pure brilliance wasn’t it?  ||gag||

Assassination Plot- Full Story from CNN.com

———————————–

It is undoubtedly sad that in the year 2008 white supremacists still exist. It is heartbreaking and unexplainable why centuries after (physical) slavery ended for African Americans the struggle to be seen as equal is still an everyday fight. Decades after Martin Luther King Jr. proclaimed that he had a dream, for African Americans the fulfillment of his dream has yet to come to fruition.  Our struggle continues because the foot of the oppressor has not been lifted and the tiny bit of equality we have seen is only a glimpse of what we deserve.

Barack Obama being nominated as the Democratic presidential candidate put hope in the hearts of many people who have prayed for change and hoped for a chance to be treated fairly and represented by someone who cared for all people, not just the ones whose skin mirrored theirs. It brought a feeling of hope and promise to their beings because now the glimmer of hope they had, which had almost tapered out, has now be rejuvenated. With the change he promises they see hope when all seemed hopeless and with that hope, they turned out in record numbers to vote. People who had never voted before in their lives, registered to vote, went out to the poll and cast their votes for the change they believed in, and that change was Barack Obama.

Obama’s nomination alone was enough to rile up the racist imbeciles who live with the belief that white people are superior to black people and with years of study and practice, this belief has become fact to them. The mere thought of a non-white person being nominated and having a more than decent chance at becoming the President of the United States is a horrific event for them. For them, the notion that African Americans may be soon celebrating what in their eyes is a “black victory” is enough to set their racist souls ablaze. It is enough to get them in action and plot an assassination.

For those of us who have no doubt that racism is still very much alive and kicking because we have seen, felt and/or experienced it; we expected something like this to happen.  We feared for Barack Obama as if we knew him personally, we prayed for him and hoped that he and his family would be strong enough to endure what was to come.  Sadly we expect even more racist acts to be plotted before Election Day and unfortunately we expect Barack Obama’s life to be threatened countless times if he is elected President of the Untied States of America. Our deepest hope and prayer is that none of these attempts are successful.

“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed”

-Martin Luther King Jr.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

-Martin Luther King Jr.

A good many observers have remarked that if equality could come at once the Negro would not be ready for it. I submit that the white American is even more unprepared.
