pictured above is Tim Wise, white liberal “anti-racist”, the go-to white person for Black people who want to prove the existence of the mythical “good white person”. He is also an admitted white supremacist, and has called the work of legendary Black psychiatrist, scholar, and author Dr. Frances Cress Welsing, who has done more for Black people then ten Tim Wise’s ever could, “pseudo-scientific bullsh-t”
“In this deceitful American game of power politics, the Negroes (i.e., the race problem, the integration and civil rights issues) are nothing but tools, used by one group of whites called Liberals against another group of whites called Conservatives, either to get into power or to remain in power. Among whites here in America, the political teams are no longer divided into Democrats and Republicans. The whites who are now struggling for control of the American political throne are divided into “liberal” and “conservative” camps. The white liberals from both parties cross party lines to work together toward the same goal, and white conservatives from both parties do likewise.
The white liberal differs from the white conservative only in one way: the liberal is more deceitful than the conservative. The liberal is more hypocritical than the conservative. Both want power, but the white liberal is the one who has perfected the art of posing as the Negro’s friend and benefactor; and by winning the friendship, allegiance, and support of the Negro, the white liberal is able to use the Negro as a pawn or tool in this political “football game” that is constantly raging between the white liberals and white conservatives.
Politically the American Negro is nothing but a football and the white liberals control this mentally dead ball through tricks of tokenism: false promises of integration and civil rights. In this profitable game of deceiving and exploiting the political politician of the American Negro, those white liberals have the willing cooperation of the Negro civil rights leaders. These “leaders” sell out our people for just a few crumbs of token recognition and token gains. These “leaders” are satisfied with token victories and token progress because they themselves are nothing but token leaders.” – Malcolm X
I would like to open this piece with a small personal anecdote/confession. As a child I, like many confused children of the 1980’s, was a big professional wrestling fan. The very simple, yet dramatic morality play of good guys vs. bad guys, as well as my love of seeing a good fight between professionals (although scripted for entertainment purposes), was something that attracted me to the art form. I immensely enjoyed and fondly remember going to the Philadelphia Spectrum with my parents and my grandmother, who was also a big fan, to watch and root for my favorite wrestlers. But the way that I and many others saw wrestling changed forever one day in 1987. That day, two of the bitterest rivals in wrestling, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, a so-called “good guy” or “babyface” as they are called in wrestling, and the Iron Sheik, a “bad guy” or “heel”, were riding in a car together and were pulled over by the state police. They both had drugs on their possession and were both arrested. Aside from the drug possession charge, which did not match the “good guy” persona of Duggan, the most confusing part of the story for my young mind was how Hacksaw Duggan, the so-called all-American hero (gag…) and the Iron Sheik, the anti-American Arab, could be riding together without an all-out brawl occurring. That’s when it became clear for me that this thing that I liked so much was “fake” for all intents and purposes, and the men who pretended to be enemies were in fact not only co-workers, but actual friends in some cases, who worked together to entertain, and more importantly, to make money from people who had no idea how it all works.
When I see the infighting between so-called liberals (the left wing of the white supremacist bird) and the so-called conservatives (the right wing), I’m often reminded of professional wrestling. The left wing and the right wing are nothing more than two factions of the same racist institution. And there are few things more dangerous to Black people who are interested in replacing white supremacy with justice than the patronizing white liberal, who during election season, for instance, comes through to Black areas to shake hands, kiss babies and talk some jive, then once they are elected, talk serious strategy and collaborate with suspected white supremacist and people who align themselves with a so-called conservative ideology, or who uses a friendly demeanor and intelligent sounding but often empty rhetoric to pacify and confuse Black people, helping to maintain racism/white supremacy in the process. As Malcolm X said in the opening quote, they are essentially vying for control to see who has the best methods for perpetuating the system of racism/white supremacy, with the liberals taking on the good guy “babyface” role, and the conservatives taking on the bad guy “heel” role. Both are equally threatened by actual, functional Black Liberation counter-racist movements, as has been demonstrated time and time again throughout history. Neither faction is very interested in the system of white supremacy, a system that their ancestors robbed, raped, killed and completely exterminated entire groups of non-whites to create, to be ended. Their only quarrel is the way in which the system of white supremacy will be maintained, with so-called conservatives taking a more overtly hard lined approach, while so-called liberals taking a softer, more conciliatory (on the surface) tone toward non-whites/victims of white supremacy.
It is my opinion that the more conciliatory the message on the surface, the more dangerous for Black people, due to the sheer deception and confusion that it creates within Black/Afrikan people. These liberals are well aware of some Black people’s desire to “put it all behind us” and live in a superficial, integrated/sub-amalgamated harmonious existence, which only exists in some Black peoples dreams (and some Black peoples nightmares as well). They are also aware of a large number of Black people’s case of what is known as “Stockholm Syndrome”. And most tragically, they are aware of many black people’s susceptibility to the proverbial “white savior”, which in my opinion has been nurtured through our continued exposure to white media (the cliche white/non-Black teacher or sports coach who comes in to save the troubled Black children/teenagers archetype for instance), as the media is the propaganda arm of racism/white supremacy.
These white liberals, due to their access to Black people which Black people freely give them, are able to study Black people closely, much more so than some open alt-right conservative/pseudo fascist can, and learn what makes Black people “tick”, psychologically and emotionally, as well as what pulls at the heart strings of many Black people. And they have absolutely no qualms whatsoever with using their “inside information” against Black people, to among other things, confuse Black people as to who and what our real enemy is. This is especially true with whites who define themselves as communist/Marxist/socialist, kwk., as well as some “conspiracy theorist” types, who historically have used economics, so-called “worker’s rights”, and the idea of poor Black people and whites uniting to overthrow the “elite” or the “1%” as a rallying point to distract Black people from fighting racism/white supremacy, which is the number one problem facing non-whites, but especially those classified as Black/Afrikan on planet earth. Anything that gets Black people off of the task of eliminating white supremacy is extraordinarily dangerous, and anyone whose sole purpose is to water down or quell Black peoples hunger for liberation is the enemy, and is practicing a refined type of white supremacy in my view.
As has been said many times by many well respected counter-racist minds, whites, not some, but all, and that includes the smiling liberal types, are not at all ignorant about the system of racism/white supremacy, nor are they ignorant of the benefits of being white in such a system. They are also well aware that their status would be ultimately meaningless, if everyone also enjoyed the same status socially. So in order for white supremacy to mean anything at all, there must be a subjugated, oppressed group to contrast. Black people have been singled out to be that group. And if the white supremacists and their sympathizers have anything to say about it, that status would be permanent. The benefits of being white are benefits that they not only relish in having, but they also would like to pass down to their children, and have their children pass that down to their children. The system of white supremacy, if I may use another analogy, is similar to an heirloom in that way. So following the logic of my assessment, I ask the question- why would whites unite with and work with Black people to overthrow a system that not only do they benefit disproportionately from, but they also would like their offspring far down the line to also benefit from? If we were to follow the logic, and use our brain computers, as Dr. Frances Cress Welsing would say, I think we could easily come to the correct answer.
