Documentary Uncle Tom

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2020 by andelino

It is both a “dismal” reflection and “depressing” statement of the times in which we live that a film like “Uncle Tom” is considered “controversial” and worthy of “media” censorship.

For daring to reject the prevailing “narrative” of black victim hood and instead choosing to “empower” the black community through individual actions, it has already been largely ignored by “conventional” media outlets.

To no one’s surprise, and to the film’s point, “black conservative” opinions do not matter. Hence a review three weeks in the making; if this film inexplicably “escaped” your radar, time to put it back on there. Sometimes second waves can be good.

Released on Juneteenth, “Uncle Tom” offers an alternative view, one of “uplift and optimism”, that run counter to the “depressing and damaging” narrative of black oppression by white America.

A statement by Herman Cain at the onset of the film captures the essence of the “divide” besetting our nation and the basis of the culture war in which we presently find ourselves mired. Cain states his three guiding lights are a “belief in God, belief in myself, and belief in the United States of America.” 

It dawned on me how little we hear phrases like this anymore.

Each of these beliefs is “anathema” to the current platform of the Democrats and the left. They say belief in God is “delusional”, they say belief in oneself is Eurocentric and rooted in “whiteness” (this is not a joke, Robin DiAngelo says the concept of individualism is pablum from Western Civilization), and they say belief in the United States is – get ready for it – “racist, sexist, intolerant, patriarchal, cisgender normative, therefore transphobic, heteronormative, therefore homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic and based in white supremacy and colonization.”

Someone, somewhere, has probably added to the list in the last five minutes.

Cain was speaking only for himself, but it is safe to suggest that not only are each of the film’s participants guided by a similar set of values but that conservatives as a whole are.

Here is Herman Cain, someone who grew up “poor and black” in the American South, and later became a decorated Naval officer, a computer science whiz, corporate executive, Federal Reserve branch chairman, and presidential candidate, and I find myself having more in common with him as a younger white male with a completely different childhood and professional background than I do most of my own siblings or cousins.

Why? Because we share the same values.

In the leftists’ perfect world, and as an example of their unifying themes and tolerance, I would owe Herman Cain reparations because I’m white and he would be expected to loathe me for ancient evils because he’s black. Does that make our country stronger?

The film opens with each interviewee running down a litany of “hateful” terms they have been called by fellow blacks as a result of simply rejecting the narrative of “victim hood.” For daring to step away from the expected party line, they are “demeaned and silenced.”

Each strong enough to withstand the hate, it is the silence that is most frustrating; how is it that thinkers like Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and Clarence Thomas are unknowns in the black community?

The election of Barack Obama was certainly a pinnacle achievement for the black community and provided inspiration outside the realms of hip-hop and sports, but there are others in the public sphere who could have been serving generations of young blacks as equally inspirational role models.

The film also delves into the various political and entrepreneurial success stories of black Americans, young and old. Executive producer Larry Elder and director Justin Malone assemble a group of people that, at any other time, would be exemplars of success and worthy of emulation for everyone.

The aforementioned Herman Cain, Colonel Allen West, Carol Swain, and Larry Elder himself appear alongside a younger generation of prominent black voices like Brandon Tatum and Candace Owens, among others, in a powerful showcasing of what “confidence, competence, and perseverance” can deliver. They neither wanted favor nor got it. They simply wanted the system and naysayers to get out of the way so they could go achieve.

Carol Swain, a prominent historian, and professor is introduced to us by saying “I never saw myself as handicapped because I was a black, because I was a woman, that I came from poverty…” Likewise, an early glimpse of Larry Elder shows him telling us that “I always knew I was going to be an achiever…I never thought of myself as a victim.”

Herman Cain relates the time a college student asked him “How did you deal with color and race when you were climbing the corporate ladder?” He laughs, then continues with his reply, “I didn’t – let them do it.”

Consistent across the interviews is a simple realization: “Not one person in the bunch sees themselves as a victim, and not surprisingly, each person is successful in their own way, in career, family, disposition. Each individual speaker is proud of who they are and their heritage.”

Indeed, the subjects of the film could not be more satisfied and content with their own outcomes in life, the result of “hard work, determination, and self-reliance.” They have applied themselves and as a result, each of them has lived the American Dream.

But, in order to do so, they, like anyone else, have to see themselves as Americans first. Not black and definitely not victims; but Americans.

The story of Jesse Lee Peterson is a great example of a political awakening. As a young, angry black man who accepted the myth that blacks could not achieve, he nonetheless observed the likes of Jesse Jackson profit handsomely off “race hustling.” If Jesse Jackson could beat the system and enrich himself, why couldn’t other blacks?

In a flash, the narrative wisped away. Colin Kaepernick makes an appearance as a modern-day example of someone simultaneously “decrying” the American system and generating enormous “sums of money” for himself for doing it.

What the film is not, and this is most important, is a plea for black Americans to just change their “voting” habits on a whim. Insofar as that is the current modus operandi, pulling a lever uncritically is the entire complaint of the production team.

Right now, they ask why 95% of blacks are “dependable” Democrats; simply switching over to the other side in equal numbers “ignores” the larger problem, namely seeking out “solutions” that are best for the community.

In many ways, in fact, a just-as-common complaint among many of the film’s subjects is that they are equally “abandoned” by the conservative right. Carol Swain found out firsthand that the Republican establishment didn’t seem overly concerned with “winning” black votes in her native Nashville during a mayoral run, and Colonel Allen West observes that Republicans have largely “written off” the black vote, having accepted it is a monolithic bloc.

Still, one cannot help but notice the appeal to the Republican Party. After all, there are staggering revelations about the percentage of “Planned Parenthood” operating in black communities (75%) and the resultant sheer loss of black life via “abortion” (20 million since Roe v. Wade; 52% of all black pregnancies ending in abortion).

There is then the incompatibility between Democrats supporting unchecked “illegal” immigration that imposes a burden not only on the low-wage job market but the welfare state, too. Both disproportionately impact the black community. School choice could be added to the list.

At the same time, the narrative about black “oppression” could be countered if the media celebrated aspects going well.

As Larry Elder observes, “if black America were a country, it’d be the 15th wealthiest country in the world.” Candace Owens remarks, in a Congressional hearing, that “white supremacy” would not crack a list on things the black community needs to worry about; yet, what is the narrative in the media and culture?

The dialogues are intended to be eye-opening for the black community, but this film is so powerful because it can resonate with anybody. Yes, it is a movie with only black voices, and the black voices speak directly to an intended black audience, but their messages transcend race.

That is the beauty of the conservative message. We look beyond superficial traits like skin color and focus on values. This film speaks about a specific value system – seeing oneself as in control of a personal narrative, working through challenges and coming out stronger, accepting America as a terrific country of opportunity, and being rewarded for hard work.

Every single American would become a better person having adopted such values, and the country would become better for it as well.

This film needs to be seen by everyone. Share the message!

You Did It, My Nigga

My Nigga 01

Comedian Larry Wilmore “ended” his White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech with a “shout out” to President Obama, calling him “my nigga” after he said he’s “always joked” he voted for the president “because” he’s black.

“I’ve always joked that I voted for the president because he’s black. Behind that joke is a humble appreciation for the historical implications for what your presidency means,” Wilmore said.

“When I was a kid, I lived in a country where people couldn’t accept a black quarterback. Now think about that. A black man was thought by his mere color not good enough to lead a football team. And now to live in your time, Mr. President, when a black man can lead the entire free world,” Wilmore said.

“Words alone do me no justice. So, Mr. President, if I’m going to keep it 100: Yo, Barry, you did it, my nigga. You did it,” Wilmore said pounding his chest.

Nigga Obama “appreciated the sentiment” from comedian Larry Wilmore.

Earnest said he spoke to the president “personally” about the speech afterwards.

My Nigga 02

“He said that he appreciated the spirit of the sentiments that Mr. Wilmore expressed,” Earnest said during the White House press briefing.

Earnest argued that the “context” of the word, and the “use” of it in a comedic setting, was important for “critics” to recognize.

“I’m confident that Mr. Wilmore used the word by design; he was seeking to be provocative,” Earnest said, adding that any reading of him using the word wasn’t making Obama the “butt of a joke.”

He added that it wasn’t the “first” time that perhaps a WHCD comedian “caused” controversy, citing previous “speeches” by Stephen Colbert and Wanda Sykes as examples.

Wilmore’s speech, Earnest asserted, was a “tough assignment,” especially after being asked to follow up a “roasting” from the president, but that Obama knew comedians “get much closer to the line than they ordinarily would.”

Rev. Al Sharpton was not “amused” saying the use of the word was “very inappropriate” in an interview with TMZ. Neither apparently was actor Ernie Hudson.

Well, at least Wilmore didn’t call Nigga Obama “Uncle Tom,” a black man who will do anything to stay in good standing with “the white man” while betraying his own people.

My Nigga 03

Michelle Obama’s “Fist Bump” after the dinner evening.

“Nigga” Obama seems to be “relishing” the fact that he’s “almost done” with his time in the White “Rainbow” Mosque.

After all, he released a video called “Couch Commander” in which he “shirks” his presidential responsibilities and “contemplates” what he will do “after” leaving office.

Over the course of four minutes Obama gets some “advice” from Joe Biden, watches “Toy Story 3” with golfing buddy John Boehner and has some tough “Fuck you, Chuck Todd” criticism for “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.

January 20, 2017 cannot come “soon enough.” On that date, our long national “nightmare” will be over.

“Nigga” Obama will no longer be “president” of the United States. You can even start the “countdown” now with these handy clocks.

My Nigga 06

These are a “must-have” for those of us who have somehow made it this far “through” the Obama disaster.

Trust me. There’s no “feeling” quite like seeing “Nigga” Obama’s time at the White “Rainbow” Mosque slipping away.

But what if you want “more” than a countdown “clock?”

If you want to be reminded “daily” how close we are to the “end” of the Obama nation, thankfully, there exists a “calendar” to help you do just that.

My Nigga 045

Every single day you can be “blessed” with the fresh realization that America is one day “closer” to getting the Obama’s out of the White “Rainbow” Mosque.

What can “possibly” be a better “gift” than that?’

Seriously, if he wants to spend all day “golfing” and fooling around with “Snapchat” filters, then he should just “spare” us the next eight months and “get out” now.

His last “day” cannot come “soon” enough.

Speaking of other Niggas”

My Nigga 04

Here is rapper “50 Cent,” whose real name is Curtis Jackson, filming himself “mocking” a janitor at the airport, then posting it “proudly” on his Instagram, because he “thought” the guy had smoked “too much” weed.

“What kind of shit you think he took before he got to work today?” the rapper asks the camera. “He’s high as a motherfucker, right here in the airport. Pupils dilated, everything. The new generation is fucking crazy.”

As it turns out Andrew Farrell is “mentally” challenged. One of his fans saw the video and “promptly” corrected the “Nigga” rapper.

“I went to school with him,” Rusty Stone wrote. “His name is Andrew Farrell. He has extreme social difficulties just to let you know. He has a hard enough time getting through life without jackasses like you making fun of him. I hope you feel good about yourself. You just lost a huge fan.”

“50 Cents” is indeed a perfect moniker for this “brainless Nigga dude.”

Uncle Tom

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on March 24, 2013 by andelino

Uncle Tom CabinPalestinian journalist Abdel Bari Atwan describes Obama as an “Uncle Tom” – an epithet derived from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 novel, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.”

The slightly more controversial version, though hardly more insulting, is “House Negro” – a black person who works in his slave master’s house, while the others toil in the field.

On his personal blog, he has criticized Obama for daring to suggest that Palestinians must acknowledge Israel’s right to exist:

“We thought he’d understand the Palestinians’ suffering under Israeli occupation, their humiliation at checkpoints and the whole racist infrastructure of the Zionist state.

But we were wrong. He has broken our trust and dashed our hopes, reminding us instead of Uncle Tom (from Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin) – the black servant whose subservience to his white master overcame his humanity.

Barack Hussein Obama surprised us with his speech in Jerusalem when he demanded the Palestinians recognize Israel as a Jewish state and urged the Arab states to recognize Israel. People who deny Israel’s right to exit, Obama reasoned, are like people who deny the Earth and the sky.”

That Abdel Bari Atwan would use the “Uncle Tom” term to describe Obama’s recent call for the Palestinians to recognize Israel is rather interesting.

You may recall, this is a man who in 2007 publicly reflected on his wishes that Israel would be the victim of a nuclear strike.

He said, “If the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar Square and dance with delight.” 

When quizzed on his statements by students at the London School of Economics, Atwan descended into further racial slurs, accusing young, Jewish students of being personally responsible for the bombing of Gaza.

And this is a man who is frequently trotted out as a “Palestinian voice” by the BBC and other news outlets, as well as appearing on platforms for “human rights” organizations like Amnesty International.

It looks like “Uncle Tom” has upset the Palestinians…
