    I know this is off the topic but it need some action from the media.


    Kamau Kambon, C-SPAN, Oct. 14

    The following is an extract from a speech by black activist Kamau Kambon on C-SPAN’s “Black Media Forum on Image of Black Americans in Mainstream Media,” which was broadcast on Oct. 14.

    “And we have to start thinking about a solution to the problem. So that these young sisters and brothers who are here now, who are 15, 16, 17, are not here 25 years later talking about these same problems.

    “Now how do I know that the white people know that we are going to come up with a solution to the problem. I know it because they have retina scans, racial profiling, DNA banks, and they’re monitoring our people to try to prevent the ONE person from coming up with the ONE idea. And the one idea is, how we are going to exterminate white people because that in my estimation is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve the problem. [tepid applause] Now I don’t care whether you clap or not but I’m saying to you that we need to solve this problem because they are going to kill us. And I will leave on that. So we just have to set up our own system and stop playing and get very serious and not get diverted from coming up with a solution to the problem and the problem on the planet is white people.”

    Listen to the whole speech on C-SPAN. (It begins at 3:33:00)
    If this was a white man it would have been war on the news. But since there black its a free pass and needs to stop! My daughters who is 12 was watching it with me and i had no idea what was going to be said. after he said those things she asked me “DAD WHY TO THEY WANT TO KILL US? WHAT DID WE DO WRONG?”
    I told her nothing they just want a free pass in the world without working like all other races to make a life for there self.
    Here is the link below.

    The media is blind to all wrong doings of blacks like kambone on c-span saying KILL ALL WHITES and alot other racist hate things going on even with FARKON who is supported my so called civil rights groups like NAACP,BLACK CUKUS LEADERS and alot others. This is racist and the media does nothing to report on it.And then you Have FARAKON who is the number 1 racist of all but yet is able to rally and make racist remarks agaisnt Whites And Jews. Calling whites {{{WHITE DEVILS}}}. And he is supported by so called civil rights leadrs as NAACP,BLACK CUKUS LEADERS AND OTHERS…. Whats going on here???? And the BLACK ON WHITE HATE CRIMES ARE STAGERING NUMBERS.
    Look at what happend to Bill Bennet after his comments was taking outa text and made to sound racist. IT WAS ALL OVER THE NEWS. But yet when blacks make threats agianst whites its covered up.
    And is getting outa control. Listen to the rap songs about whites…its wrong and the media knows this…
    Only one person coverd this story and it was BILL ORILLY! after i wrote some 30 emails to FOX NEWS!.
    Write you congressmen and media and demand answers. This is racism. And if we dont stop it now its going to get outa control. Look at what happend to ohio teldo. Nazi group goese to protest black on white gang crimes and the blacks start looting and burning house throwing rocks. its crazy. and no i dont support nazi groups just making a valid point!

    and then a girls rights a letter in school about issues she sees and now is labled a racist.. this is wrong.

    here is her letter and she speaks the truth.

    Student observes double standards at Winthrop

    by Christine Byington
    November 05, 2005

    Black people at Winthrop will probably be angry. And I’m sure they will proclaim that Christine Byington doesn’t care about black people. If you care, however, you will read this thoughtfully.

    To begin, I think it’s important to state a fact obvious to those who know me well. I don’t mean to implicate all blacks in this. I just have a problem with the belligerent ones who think we aren’t doing enough for them.

    Hurricane Katrina brought back to the public attention the ongoing issue of race relations in America. The tragedy quickly shifted from concern for the people affected by the hurricane to the judgment that the federal government did not like black people. Obviously, the federal government has a vendetta against the blacks and chose not to respond to them quickly, right?

    I guess we’re assuming that the many people of various ethnic backgrounds in the Bush administration don’t care about black people, either.

    Today in the daily student announcements I saw the “Black Fact of the Week.” I did not have a problem with this in itself. Surely it is important for us to understand the contributions of black people in our lives. However, this is just one piece of an ever-complicating problem on campus.

    In case you don’t know, there are quite a few groups on Facebook devoted to black people. Two in particular caught my attention: “Winthrop Does Not Like Black People” and “I Should’ve Went to a Blacker College.”

    The first group describes itself as, “a group for people that agree that Winthrop is not a university for black people. Winthrop really doesn’t try to do anything for blacks and black people has to work so hard to get things here.”

    My main point with that description, being the amateur grammarian that I purport to be, is that the first step to “get things here” is to use proper English. To get what you want, you have to work hard. I don’t think this is a problem unique to black people. Everyone has to work hard in college.

    I also wonder what they want. If anyone who is a member of that group would like to inform us what they want, then that would be super. My friends and I hypothesize that professors are equal opportunity dislikers. They don’t necessarily make things difficult for you because of your skin color or any other variable. They make things difficult because they can.

    Seriously, though, what would you like Winthrop to do more of for you? I’m sure the administration would like to hear your options because they dedicate themselves to making Winthrop a positive learning environment. No, that was not a facetious comment.

    The second group I mentioned begins its description with a simple question:

    “Are u sick of not finding anyone good to do your hair without paying an arm and a leg? Do you ever see an HBCU’s band and then hear the sorry Winthrop Pep Band and feel ashamed? Do you find yourself fleeing to other colleges just to enjoy a REAL homecoming (ex: football team)? Did you look around the first day of orientation and was like what the hell did I get myself into? Then you should have gone to a blacker college!”

    I think this opinion I am about to write applies to everyone who complains for hours about Winthrop. If you hate the school so much, you have options. Namely, go ahead and go to another college. This Facebook group brings up the issue of having no football team at Winthrop. I don’t know about anyone else, but I knew Winthrop didn’t have a football team when I applied. Chances are you did too.

    I have enjoyed many-a-comment in class about the plight of black people. Now, I understand taking pride in your heritage. However, it is just that-heritage. We no longer hose people in the streets. I’d say if you have the freedom to sit in a classroom and state those opinions, you’ve got it pretty well. I think the problem many people see with all the racially based arguments is that it seems those who argue the points are using past experience as present justification. They still think that the United States is a racist country and that the country isn’t doing enough for them.

    I am a Republican and I definitely believe in the Republican-esque approach to achievement: Anyone can succeed in life if they try hard enough. Sure, there might have been many barriers to black success 40 years ago. However, it’s 2005. With the exception of a minority of businesses and perhaps universities, there are not many barriers to deal with anymore.

    In fact, I think there has been a surge in specialized programs for people of various ethnic backgrounds. For example, I’ve been looking into summer research programs in psychology. I’ve noticed that most of the programs are limited to students of ill-represented groups (i.e., ethnic minorities). I am only half black and I don’t want to use that as my way to get into a program.

    Ultimately, I think we need to achieve more equality. To be truly equitable, for example, we should offer programs that are specifically for whites. Yes, I just said that. I’m sure a lot of people just slammed the paper down and spouted a few expletives. But don’t you see the logic here? It can’t be a problem in one instance and not in another. Kids, that’s called a double standard.

    This happens far too often, though. Some blacks are happy with the programs that benefit them. Once a similar program starts that is geared toward whites, all of a sudden the program becomes racist. Like a person I know once said, if an Association of Ivorites was established on campus, people would be up in arms.

    We need only look at the case of a whites-only scholarship established at Roger Williams University last year. The group who sponsored the scholarship did so not out of racism but out of a desire to be fair.

    Those who complain about the state of affairs tend to cite this desire for fairness. However, to be truly fair, we should offer such specialized opportunities for various groups in America. We should also offer White Facts of the Day and Hispanic Facts of the Day, among others.

    I think it’s important to mention the groups on Facebook that are devoted to intelligent and articulate blacks. It’s somewhat disappointing when that is perceived as a surprise. I’m sure if you approached any of those people and asked them what people in their families or communities thought of them, you’d probably find a few who would tell you people didn’t like them.

    Some in the black community frown upon black students succeeding in life. I think we have a problem when we need Facebook groups to highlight the articulate blacks on campus. While others are spending time complaining about the way things are, there are students at this school who are doing something about those problems.

    A basic observation of people would show you that if you devote time to complaining about the way things are (Jesse Jackson), you don’t have as much time to devote to finding effective solutions.

    To the angry black people who might be reading this column, understand that I do not mean ill will toward you. Basically, I’m the “safe” person to write this because I’m biracial. Know that there are many people on this campus who feel the same way I do but who do not want to air their opinions in the Johnsonian because, well, they are white.

    I think it’s sad when some whites feel they must stifle their opinions because of the color of their skin. That must be what life was like for blacks in the 1950s.
