The Mid-South Tribune’s Endorsement of ALL Black Republican Candidates in 2020 Election

By Ms. Arelya J. Mitchell, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief

To the Black community, if you keep sending the same black representatives back, you’re going to keep getting the same thing: Nil or nothing.

                What our black citizens need to realize is that the second-round of stimulus checks are not going out because Democrat Nancy Pelosi has handed down the orders. Joining Nancy Pelosi is the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) which obeys Pelosi at the expense of black constituents in their respective districts. Pelosi’s relentlessness in leadership is to keep the black community in check, hoping that President Trump will be seen as the one holding back funds critically needed by all Americans. As usual, the CBC is aiding and abetting her. The Democrat Party’s oldest trick is to keep black Americans thinking that Republicans are white supremacists. It is no accident that in every presidential debate or townhall, or interview where a mainstream media journalist is in charge, the term “white supremacist” is tossed about when it comes to black issues. Not one of these journalists, to our observation, has ever brought up the issues of education, jobs, job creation, entrepreneurship, black-owned business, HBCUs, riots, black-on-black crime, the black family or any other issue which impacts the black community.

These ‘Democratified’ -pseudo -liberal journalists continuously play to the Democrats’ black base which is essentially the black female. To reemphasize: The Democrat Party caters to the black female. Period. Exclamation mark. Practically all of their leadership seminars are aimed at the black female. Any warrior knows that if you get rid of the male, it is easier to conquer the women and children; thus, this is the strategy of the Democrat Party to secure the Black Vote. Any warrior also knows that to conquer, you cut off communications. This is where Big Tech comes in to begin and continue its campaign of deleting any and all non-conforming blacks such as black Republicans, conservatives – or any black who does not conform to the will and whim of the Democrat Party. The move by Big Tech is to further advance a socialist agenda on the backs of the black citizens, and to annihilate BLEXIT and the Walk Away. Besides, Democrat candidate Joe Biden has already made it clear that “If you ain’t Democrat, you ain’t black.”

                Because the Democrat-led Congressional Black Caucus has chosen for decades now to put the Democrat Party over its respective constituents, it’s time for new black blood to replace it. This is why we are endorsing All of the black Republicans who are running for office in 2020. We are continuing what we have advocated for decades which is to turn the Black Vote into a Swing Vote.  We continue our resolve to replace this group of stagnant black officials with blacks who think economically. How pleased we were recently to hear multi-millionaire rap mogul Fifty Cent endorse President Donald Trump; albeit, his assertion of Trump not liking blacks, is absurd and a continuation of the propaganda that Republicans are racists and white supremacists.  If such were true about this President, a slew of rappers who befriended him before he was president would not have been anywhere around him. Yet, they were, as evidenced in numerous photos and videos with witnesses abound.

For decades upon decades, CBC members have run on two qualifications (1) being black and (2) being a Democrat. They needn’t deliver anything, and they have a freedom to punish any black citizen who won’t subjugate himself or herself to the Democrat Party. A case in point was during the President’s 2020 State of the Union speech in which the President announced that a little black girl had received a scholarship from a charter school her mother had been trying to get her into for years. Instead of applauding this achievement, the entire CBC chose to protest the little black girl and her mother. They sat. They sat on a black child’s achievement all because they did not want to insult the teachers’ union or public schools (Although, one can be assured that some of their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews are in private and charter schools). If parents feel that a public school does not fit the needs of their child, then they should have a “choice.” After all, this is the 21st Century. Joe Biden was not for school choice when that choice specifically stemmed from Jim Crow; when a black child had no choice. Biden had even enlisted the aid of former KKK member, the late Sen. Robert Byrd, to help him keep ‘white’ schools lily white.

It, too, was shameful how the CBC did not make any move on COVID-19 until the CARES Stimulus Bill was passed. Then they acted as if they really cared. Why? Because money came into play, and in too many instances, the CBC elites will take care of their own cliques and party members. Anytime sizable funds are released, it is incumbent on everyday black citizens to ask, “Where’s the money?” Kim Klacik who is running for Congress to represent Baltimore is asking that question. Millions have seen Klacik strut in her red dress touring the ruins of Baltimore which is still decaying from riots and decades of Democrat black leadership. In her political ad, Klacik examines the level of education in the city’s public schools where black students are not even proficient in math and reading. Unfortunately, this is the state of education is universal in the black community.

All of these inspiring and common-sensical black Republicans running are bringing out issues—real important issues—and they are proponents of black capitalism and capitalism. Read Burgess Owens’ book and philosophy. Owens is about Old School values which used to be an integral part of the black community. Joe Collins is taking on a mummified Maxine Waters who lives in a $6 million mansion OUTSIDE of her district. After all, she can’t possibly live in the same area as the black peasants who pay her salary and keep those expensive wigs on her head. Then, there’s the feisty Angela Stanton-King fighting to replace the legendary John Lewis who, in our opinion, should have resigned years ago. Lewis, in our opinion, and others in his ilk who emerged from the 60’s Civil Rights Movement had and have become stagnant, entitled, elitist and entrenched in what is now the good-ole-black boy-good-ole-black girl network. Then, there’s John James running for the U.S. Senate. As a West Point graduate, he has served his country in combat in Iraq and received two Air Medals and a Combat Action Badge (CAB). He has great ideas. Give him a chance to execute them. In the Memphis area, the same can be said of Charlotte Bergmann. We can go on with our accolades for this new level of black leadership—American leadership to expand the black middle class and build black wealth from the black farmland to the suburb to the city to the nation. Time to get rid of the present black rascals!

  See below the names of all of our endorsements. Big Tech may stop you from posting, but find a way—including word of mouth—that it is time to VOTE black Republicans into Office. Already, we are getting word from blacks that they are voting for anyone with an “R” at the end of their name on the ballot. After this election, blacks must take on Big Tech in Silicon Valley with the same passion and commitment it did when it took on Jim Crow in the South. Because, now, as we all know, Big Tech is utilizing black algorithms and its overwhelming economic power to destroy the First Amendment rights of non-Democrat black citizens to keep those blacks in their place. When and if there is a congressional hearing on Big Tech’s censoring, black citizens and black pundits should be invited to participate in this renewal segregation under the guise of Tech Jim Crow.

                For the Record: We have already endorsed for a second time President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

                We kindly ask for you to Vote for the following Black Republicans:

Endorsement Editorial on Pres. Trump

By Ms. Arelya J. Mitchell, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief

The Mid-South Tribune

 

“What the hell do you have to lose?” If ever there was a crossroads moment it was when President Donald J. Trump asked this rhetorical question of the black community. We say ‘nothing’ as we did in 2016. We, again, endorse President Trump to continue to “Make America Great Again!”

President Trump thinks outside the ‘black’ box. He focuses on implementing economic policies which will benefit all Americans, because all Americans’ lives matter.

African Americans should reject the Democrat Party’s paved gold roads to Marxism, Socialism, and Communism – under the guise of Democrat Socialism. The Biden-Harris-Sanders-AOC-Congressional Black Caucus-Nancy Pelosi-Black Lives Matter-Antifa ticket will take the black community and America into economic genocide.   For too long, the black community remains a venue for any outside group to advance any crap it wants to.

Black Lives Matter advocates the following: 1. Marxism, 2. Anti-male 3. Anti-nuclear family (by labeling it white supremacist). 4. De-funding the police.  Black Lives Matter believes in the redistribution of wealth albeit George Soros has yet to redistribute his own; Democrat Party socialist Bernie Sanders has yet to redistribute his or give up two of his three houses; AOC has yet to redistribute her own; such superstars as LeBron James and Colin Kaepernick have yet to redistribute their own. Presently, a conclave of big advertisers, corporations, and Big Tech has formed partnerships to advance Marxism and Socialism in the black community while their respective communities remain capitalistic and riot-free. Safe.

Any warrior knows that if you want to control a community, you must first destroy or cripple its males and its means of communication.  Mainstream media outlets aid and abet the Antifa-Black Lives-Matter-Marxist-socialist agenda in the black community to push forth a ‘Medium is the Message’ and that message is Anti-Trump, anti-Republican Party, anti-capitalism to achieve Soros’ Open Society at any expense to the black community.

The elementary question remains in the black community: If you have had 400 years in slavery, why haven’t you advanced beyond reacting, marching and rioting? Why hasn’t the black community like any other minority advanced economically? Passage of the 1964 Civil Rights bill has already dismantled the once legality of Jim Crow not only in the South but nationwide.  If it were not so, the United States would not produce worldwide the highest number of black millionaires and multi-millionaires with a couple of billionaires thrown in here and there.

 

We watched Tuesday night when the President gave the citizenship pledge to five immigrants who did it the right way by going through the steps to become U.S. citizens.    First Lady Melania Trump, who became a citizen in 2006, told us why she wanted to get from under a communist regime to come to America. We heard the pain of Maximo Alvarez whose family escaped the Communist terrorism inflicted on Cuba by Castro. Alvarez is now the owner and founder of a gasoline distribution company.

Yes, the United States continues to be a land where black rappers can go from the street to mansions; yet, in too many instances we see some of those same rappers and superstars who ran up behind Donald Trump BEFORE he was president now disown him claiming that he is a racist. We appreciated how former NFL football star Herschel Walker told the world of his 37-year friendship with President Trump. Besides, we have to ask that if Donald Trump had been viewed as a racist, his TV reality show, “The Apprentice” would have not remained a No. One TV show for years. Do you really think that George “Segregation Now, Segregation Forever” Wallace would have been able to have a number one TV show in America’s households without being denounced as a racist?

Still, we ask ourselves, ‘Why won’t the black community fight back this small, roach-hatred infested group of Black Lives Matter and Antifa?’ The black community needs to answer for itself.  It has in the 21st Century become a minority group which sits and sits on any other black who dares to move, to have something, be something. A prime example is the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) which literally sat when President Trump during his State of the Union speech announced that a little black girl had received a scholarship. These grown-ass CBC adults sat in unimaginable hatred of this little black girl and her mother who had achieved a better education opportunity all because Trump made a way for her to attend a charter school, something her mother had been trying to do for years. Is this not the same hatred the Little Rock Nine black children encountered when they wanted a better education? But you can bet your bottom dollar that many of their children are in private and charter schools. For the record, it was President Dwight D. Eisenhower who sent in the National Guard to protect these black children. Eisenhower was a Republican. There was a time in the black community when the entire neighborhood showed up for high school graduations. These were times of victorious celebration because for any black child to get an education meant the whole community was being lifted, moving forward, successfully breaking the Black Code which dictated that it was a crime to teach a slave to read and write.

Education and the value of education once upon a time had been respected in the black community and was looked on as the main building block to obtain middle class level. At the time, it was not money which made that determination because seldom did blacks have money or inherited money anyway. There were times when it was not uncommon to hear an uneducated parent say that their one goal in life was to make sure their black child got an education. These uneducated black parents were the movers and shakers in the community because they had the value of education. They never would have in a million years thought their child should be taught Ebonics (as advocated by 21st Century black academia and black liberal elitists) or have ACT tests eliminated to further dummy down the black child.

In a 21st Century, the black child is expendable.  President Trump introduced Operation LeGend in honor of four-year-old LeGend Taliferro who was shot to death by black thugs. Would a racist have done this? In a world of Biden and Harris, if young LeGend had lived, he might have been incarcerated quickly and forgotten.

“Operation LeGend is not to harass, it’s not to harm or to hurt. It’s to help investigate unsolved murders. In which one of those happens to be our innocent four-year-old son. This operation is personal for us. We want justice for our son and others. We have to take a stand in our communities to make this operation be successful,” Charron Powell, mother of LeGend Taliferro, stated.

Yet, the black community has failed to protect its children. There are no marches for the children. There is no passion for the children. Their innocent lives don’t matter. Their futures don’t matter.

President Trump has guaranteed a 10-year funding of HBCUs (Historical Black Colleges and Universities). Trump did this because he could not understand why HBCU presidents had been coming back and forth to the White House during past administrations to beg for funding. These colleges were the building blocks to black economic stability; yet, President Barack Obama’s policies began a road of displacing these colleges with community colleges, when there was clearly room for both—yet, America’s first ‘man of color’ president began an unprecedented level of wiping out black colleges and their historical significance. Of course, his disrespect for HBCUs extended to Congressional Black Caucus members whom he did not meet with when he first came into office. Obama managed to meet with every other group while the CBC begged to meet with him.  When he finally met with them, he stood up before the world to chastise them as if they were children: “What are you whining about?”

We have editorialized (and I in the capacity of editor of another newspaper) that HBCUs should be enhanced, especially in the 21st Century, by having ‘state-of the-science’ STEM departments. The HBCU has always embraced students regardless of race, color, and creed. And, in many instances those minorities such as Indians (as from India), Africans, and others who would not be embraced as academic members were embraced at black colleges. During the RNC Convention, even Nikki Haley said that her father taught at an HBCU. Today, a sizable number of white students go to and graduate from HBCUs, such as with Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri or Lane University in Jackson, Tennessee. These white students weren’t looking for color; they were looking for an education. They did not care that their professors were African American. Like any serious student, they wanted to learn.

We believe that HBCU presidents should again meet with the President and Secretary of Education De Voss to implement STEM departments so that more ‘Hidden Figures’ can be accommodated. Who knows? Maybe some will be part of the newly-formed Space Force. We were also pleased to see that HBCUs are included in the Opportunity Zones Initiative.  On a recent Fox & Friends (Fox Cable Network), HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson stated that “… Just designating a place an Opportunity Zone increases the property value by 1.1%. For the half of people who live in Opportunity Zones who own homes, that worth has gone up by $11 billion already. This is the type of thing the President is trying to do — a rising tide lifts and floats all boats. That’s what we’re talking about.”

Unlike when Mrs. Rosa Parks sat so that we may rise, the 21st black community has sat until mediocrity, contentment, 400-year excuse-making and violence became the norm. The black community has sat accepting promises made by the Democrat Party which delivered nil or nothing. The black community has sat and silently consented when Congressional Black Caucus members voted to pass NAFTA, further wiping away the black middle class in such cities as Detroit and Flint. The black Democrats of the Caucus continue to put Nancy Pelosi’s, Maxine Waters’, James Clyburn’s, and Old Guard black Democrat one-time civil rights activists’ emotionalism above black economic interests. Most of these congressmen and leaders such as Al Sharpton are relics of the past. If they cannot and refuse to adjust to the 21st Century, they should remain in the past. We were even disturbed how the late Cong. John Lewis embraced Black Lives Matter-Marxists, and especially disgusted how America’s first ‘man of color’ President Barack Obama used his funeral to further the Democrat agenda—not the black community’s socio-economic agenda. Of course, Obama didn’t do a damn thing for the African American community when he was there, so we were not surprised to hear his eulogy to the late Congressman become emotional rhetoric to secure the Black Vote. Just disgusted.

The black community has sat until Joe Biden authored and honed the Crime Bill which saw the incarceration of thousands of black men many of them the sons, grandsons, and great grandsons of the “Great Society” which dismantled the black family of its fathers for generations.

At least in President Trump’s case, it been “promises made and promises kept.” The black community had its highest employment rate in history until the China virus.

President Trump and the nation’s only black Republican U.S. senator, Tim Scott, introduced the First Step prison reform program which saw Mrs. Alice Marie Johnson get a second chance at life and a career. We saw during the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, August 25, former bank robber Jon Ponder tell the world how his life was changed and how he went on to found Hope for Prisoners in Las Vegas. We heard the story how Ponder found his Christian faith and became friends with former FBI agent Richard Beasley who arrested him. We saw President Trump put his action where his mouth was and give Ponder a full pardon. We saw President Trump attend the graduation ceremony of one-time prisoners in Ponder’s program who have received a second chance. President Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” achieved no more than lip-service and public relations when it came to helping young black men and boys, but such lip service has been the modus operandi of black Democrat politicos.

The black church sat until the Johnson Amendment was introduced to make it impotent. We have seen the black church welcome exclusively white Democrat politicians. It is sad to say that the black church was no longer about worshipping God, but worshipping the Golden Donkey. We have yet to see high profile ministers denounce the FACT that “Under God” was left out of the Pledge of Allegiance. The move to get rid of God and any reference to faith is not surprising. This is what Marxism does. This is what Black Lives Matter-Marxists do. After all, Karl Marx said that “religion is the opium of the people.” So, if you want to manipulate a community, you must destroy its churches and replace it with the Party—and that Party is the Democrat Party which continues to grow in its influence and dictatorship in the African American community.

God, give us the strength to say ‘no’—not to the Democrat Party but to ourselves for continuing to accept the fact that the Democrat Party rules in the black community. Its tentacles have reached into the black church, the black school, the black media and worst of all, the black family. It is no longer the community which held dearly a value system of mores which brought out the best in black leadership, black scholastic achievement, and black work ethic.  There was a time when the community preached “Young, Gifted, and Black.” There was a time when black parents and teachers taught and instilled in black children that they had to be two or three times as good at what they did because they were in a Jim Crow society and may inherit a Jim Crow society. There was a time when a black teacher with a raggedy book taught more to black children than a unionized white liberal teacher does now with expensive books, computers, and what have you. The black community continues to sit as little Black Johnny and Janey are dummied down to a point of no return. This is why we endorse Melania Trump’s “Be Best” Initiative which also stresses STEM to young black children.

We endorse the Opportunity Zones created by Senator Tim Scott, implemented by HUD Secretary and White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council Chairman Ben Carson and others under the leadership and commitment of President Trump who on more than one occasion has acknowledged that the black community’s next ‘opportunity’ should be and has to be economic, a philosophy we have advocated for years.  Even Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. advocated that economics is the next plank in the Civil Rights Movement. One has to only read and reread King’s ‘Mountaintop” speech, his final speech before he was assassinated on the steps of the Lorraine Motel on April 4, 1968.

We reemphasize:  Everything in the Black community emanates and has to be sanctioned by the Democrat Party from the black family to the black church to the black schools to the black media—EVERYTHING.

If America wants to see how a one-party system and full-blown socialism will look, it needn’t look any further than the black community.  It needn’t look any further than the deterioration of the black community. Look at the majority of that community accepting the rule of the mob, the bullying of the mob, and worse of all, worshipping the Golden Donkey.

Socialism is a lazy man’s capitalism.

We also say that it is time for a civil war inside the black community. The God-fearing, decent, hard-working black citizen must take back their community. Black ‘real’ men must work with police departments and stand guard around black-owned businesses and other businesses when riots break out to run off what we call the low-down, good-for-nothing black trash and white trash known respectively as Black Lives Matter-Marxists and Antifa from the neighborhood and to kick George Soros in his ‘Open Society’ ass. The black community must change the makeup of an irrelevant, defunct, good-ole-black boy and black girl network of the Congressional Black Caucus which was founded on welcoming both black Democrats and Republicans, but no more. Black citizens must also remember that the CBC did not give a damn about the China-Covid19 Virus in the black community until the CARES Act was introduced, and then they saw it as more of an opportunity to help their cliques rather than their constituents. Where were they when it became evident that the virus had no color line and would cross into the black community as well? Instead they joined their Democrat comrades in calling Trump xenophobic and praising Nancy Pelosi who wanted to go partying in Chinatown. It was evident that the CBC was more interested in making Trump look bad rather than in the health of their black constituents. Did you see even one of them early on inform their constituents on the potential danger of the China Virus? No. You can trace the timeline: They only became interested when CARES money came into play. The black community must not continue to send blacks to Congress based solely on the facts that they are black and Democrat. Nothing more.

Just like cream rises to the top, so does trash.

We reiterate: It sickens us when black babies and children are shot like dogs and not a damn, no-good Democrat says a thing. When a community shows no outrage over the slaughtering of its children, that community ceases to be human and humane. These black Democrats and white Democrats are mainly in charge of these cities where these senseless killings are happening. In the spirit of Fannie Lou Hamer, ‘We are sick and tired of being sick and tired’ of the likes of a bug-eyed Chicago Mayor, a glazed-eyed New York mayor and self-righteous governor, black prosecutors such as the Soros-backed one who arrested the white McCloskeys  (Mark and Patty) who had enough guts to protect themselves when the BLM-Marxists and Antifa mob descended on their home. We don’t care if their house had been a mansion or a shack, it was theirs to defend. We have seen where Black Lives Matter-Marxists and Antifa have sealed off doors of a church to burn people alive inside. Recently, they sealed off a police station where police were still inside to burn them alive. Mainstream media will not report such incidents.

We support our police. Most of whom are good citizens and decent. The black community wants the police in their neighborhoods; the black community wants LAW and Order.

We applaud those ‘real’ black men of Englewood who ran BLM-Marxists and Antifa out of their neighborhood. Furthermore, we know these riots and lootings are no longer about George Floyd, but rather about delivering the black community to the Democrat Socialists for Election Time. Even, Democrat State Rep. Vernon Jones of Georgia was man enough to call out the Democrat Party about its neglect of black voters, and if you heard his speech at the Republican National Convention, you would have heard why he is endorsing President Trump and why he is putting the interests of his constituents over the interests of what has become the Democrat  Socialist Party.

We shall OVERCOME the Democrat Party!

If this black civil war inside the black community does not happen quickly, it will be economic genocide, and the black community will go by the way of the Etruscans. No company—from a Target, to an AutoZone, to a Kroger, to a Macy’s to a Home Depot to a mom-and-pop store will build anything back in the black community. Black businesses and entrepreneurship will have no place to take root.  Even Opportunity Zones will not work.

If the black community as a whole hasn’t the guts to get rid of Black Lives Matter-Marxists and Antifa, then it is time to bring in the Ark. And at that point, we must say to those blacks who want a better life for themselves, children and generations to come, get on the Ark. As for the rest, let the Flood come.

We shall OVERCOME the Democrat Party!

As we endorse President Donald J. Trump, we have still yet to hear any Democrat, the DNC, or a member of the Congressional Black Caucus denounce Black Lives Matter-Marxists, Antifa and violence in the black community. We have yet to see any of them reach out to black business owners who have seen their dreams burned to the ground. Not one of them has denounced the killing of retired policeman Dorn who was guarding his friend’s pawnshop during the riots. Antifa and Black Lives Matter-Marxists live streamed his brutal killing.  Big Tech did not censor that!

We have yet to see or hear Joe ‘He Ain’t Black’ Biden or his running mate Kamala ‘I Only Claim to be Black when it Benefits Me’ Harris hold a press conference denouncing the violence, black-on-black killing, the killing of black babies and children or even the killing of a white five-year-old little boy riding his tricycle when his black neighbor shot him pointblank in the forehead. This is about hate, and hate knows no color.

We strongly endorse President Donald John Trump and black Republicans. We urge our black citizens to give this President and the brave black Republicans a chance. We have nothing to lose, and everything to gain to stand up for  the black community which gave us Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mrs. Rosa Parks, Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer, Mr. Medgar Evers, and the thousands – black, white, and Jewish citizens who walked the bridge, sat at lunch counters, endured powerful water hoses and dogs, and sacrificed their lives, limb, and livelihood.

 

We endorse the Trump-Pence ticket to:

Make America Great Again!

Make Black America Safe Again!

 

Vote for Donald Trump on November 3rd.

 

Time to Separate Sports from Politics; Time to Put the Fans First

By Ms. Arelya J. Mitchell, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief

The Mid-South Tribune

Have you seen one elite African American NBA or NFL player come out to denounce the killing of black babies and children in Chicago or other hot spots? Have you seen even one of them lead a march against black-on-black crime?  We point out these two sports organizations because African American athletes are at the core of these organizations’ wealth. This black core inside both these organizations has employed bullying to get what they want in their support of Black Lives Matter (BLM). Any other player who goes against this elite black core of players will suffer their wrath. Just ask white quarterback Drew Brees who took his pill of ‘apologetism’ and backed down. One wonders how he will explain what could have been his white Rosa Parks moment to his sons.  We can suspect that there are black players who agree with Brees or who just want to play football and forget the politics. We can imagine there were some black players in the NBA and NFL who wanted to go to the White House when invited, because it was a once-in-a-lifetime event they could tell to their grandchildren. (Even when I was invited to the White House in the last century, it was an honor I shall always remember even if I did not vote for the President who invited me.). Yet, this elite core of black superstars called this shot in their lives.

We, too, thought Black Lives Matter would be a positive in the black community. We supported their cause to do something about police brutality but with the understanding that most of our police officers are good, decent people, and that it would be incumbent upon them to help rid the community of the bad apples. We thought BLM would act as a liaison between police and the black community.  But instead, this became a De-fund the Police Movement. As a veteran journalist, I have had many seniors come up to me and whisper how they wanted more police in the community. Whisper, because they were afraid—not of the police, but the black thugs and the black backlash. We thought this was a prime opportunity for a young group of blacks to take the role of leadership to protect the elder, the young, and the decent black citizens working to have something good, produce something good. These were the forgotten black people. They are still forgotten.

Instead, BLM has yet to step foot inside of a black community to call out the barbarism of Chicago and the killing of black babies and children. The infamous Colin Kaepernick has yet to denounce black-on-black crime and the slaughter of black children. We have yet to hear him denounce the killing of a one-year-old black baby or any denouncement from any of these elite black athletes who reside in the sanctity of black privilege and wealth. We have yet to hear even Rev. Al Sharpton or Rev. Jesse Jackson denounce the latest killings of black babies and children and the maiming of black seniors. Why? The answer is simple enough: It does not fit their agenda to keep their status of leadership in a community which is throwing them overboard to cater to BLM and this black core of multi-millionaire athletes who bask in capitalism. They have in fact as has LeBron James kowtowed to China to keep their multi-millions intact. Besides, do you really think LeBron James or members of the black multi-millionaires in the NFL and NBA would be making the fortunes they are in any African nation if they’d been born there since they are so into ‘black this and black that’ without any regard to character? When an ethnic group does little to protect its young, it becomes worthless and loses all respect.

Black Lives Matter was going by the wayside until George Floyd’s horrific death. We were all mortified and condemned his death—his murder. Regardless of race, color, or creed, we as Americans and human beings renounced what these ‘bad’ cops did and how they gave our good decent police officers a bad name. Yet, it became immediately clear that George Floyd’s death became an undercover operation for Antifa to conjoin with BLM to destroy and burn down black-owned businesses and other businesses such as AutoZone and Target; to loot at will; to video a killing of a retired black policeman who was guarding his friend’s business to play online; to desecrate statues of Frederick Douglass, Abe Lincoln, and monuments that slaves themselves  paid to have erected. Antifa, which is mostly comprised of paid young angry white agitators, had no problem in utilizing BLM and BLM had no problem being utilized. BLM and Antifa to this date have continued to destroy anybody and any community they deem fit to destroy so they can plow the field for the United States to become a bona fide Marxist/socialist government.  They have seized Portland and Seattle for weeks, and the pathetic thing is that these cities are mainly run by black Democrats who have yet to denounce black-on-black crime and the killing of black babies.  This is black privilege: You are allowed to say nothing negative about another black person or organization.

This America has produced more black millionaires than any nation in the world. This America in spite of flaws has produced black multi-millionaire athletes inside the NFL and NBA. Any talented black boy or young man has the opportunity to kick or bounce a ball and go straight to the bank with million-dollar checks. Yet, if he gets to the NBA or NFL, he hasn’t the Freedom of Speech. This select core of privileged black athletes has handed down the Commandments that If Thou Art Black, Thou Must not have an Opinion contrary to BLM. Thou must Renounce any President who is not a Democrat. In fact, these elite black athletes adhere to what the Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has stated that “If you ain’t Democrat, you ain’t black!” Yet, this elite group of black privileged athletes would not re-distribute their own wealth. We don’t see Kaepernick or LeBron James redistributing their wealth as BLM’s Marxist philosophy advocates. In fact, LeBron James seemingly is more concerned about hurting China’s feelings than denouncing the killing of black children or black-on-black crime. One can almost deduce that if the Chairman of the People’s Republic of China invited him to an event, LeBron James and these other elite black athletes would flock there, not giving a damn about China’s history of slaughtering and enslaving its own people.

No matter how much this elite core of black athletes bitch, they would not have been who they are had not what happened in the past (slavery) brought them to where they are, the United States of America. You are born who you are because of the past. No one has a choice where and to whom they are born. It is what makes ‘you’ you and after that, you have the right to ‘Pursue Happiness’. Many want to come to America because of this principle. Even Jackie Robinson made it in spite of the flaws. Jim Brown made it in spite of the flaws. Yes, this nation is flawed because it is not heaven. No nation is.

Unfortunately, the black community (collectively speaking, because there are individuals who can think on their own) remains a community which reacts. Black Lives Matter and this core of elite black athletes fall into that category. They are symptomatic of 21st Century weak black leadership. During the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, African American leaders and citizens sat in churches, thought out and organized to rid the nation of the legality of ‘systemic racism’. Let us repeat this. The ‘legality of systemic racism’ was eradicated with the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Making Jim Crow illegal was the goal. It was achieved.  It was achieved with black, white, Jewish, and others marching against it; with black, white, Jewish and other lawyers filing lawsuits against it and winning. For the record: Had not Republicans voted to pass the Civil Rights Bill during the Johnson administration, there would have been no bill because the Democrat Party in the South was pro-segregation just as it was pro-slavery in the 19th Century.  Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer fought the Democrat Party to get her rights inside this party to even be a delegate; thus, the Mississippi Freedom Democrat Party was founded.

The following is an alleged quote from white multi-billionaire George Soros whom many accuse of financing Black Lives Matter and Antifa, but whether Soros said this or not is irrelevant because the quote is true regardless of where it actually originated:

“I’m going to bring down the United States by funding black hate groups. We’ll put them in a mental trap and make them blame white people. The black community is the easiest to manipulate.”

It was alleged that George Soros made this quote in Germany’s BILD newspaper in 2014.  Not only I as a veteran journalist but as a political scientist and hopefully with common sense most of time (We are all flawed and can screw up), know that this is one of the tactics used to advance Marxism in the black community. Marxism is socialism and communism. Black Lives Matter has called itself Marxists (See their website); therefore, in all of our editorials and opinion pieces, we are now referring to it as Black Lives Matter-Marxists or BLMM. ANTIFA (the Left’s KKK) is part of this Marxist movement via the black community; via manipulating the black community.  You have to be a fool not to realize that these riots and looting are perpetuated by and organized by paid agitators. You can only get away with what rhymes with ‘hit’ in the black community, because this community is so obsessed with the excuse of slavery and ‘systemic racism’ that it no longer thinks – just reacts. It is rabid in calling anyone who doesn’t agree with it ‘racist’. The word ‘racist’ is now up there with the little boy who cried ‘wolf’. We are now hearing blacks who are sick and tired of hearing the words ‘racists’ and ‘racism’. Of course, these are the black individuals who will never be heard because they are preempted by BLMM, Antifa, and a core of elite black athletes mainly in the NFL and NBA and who now control the NFL and NBA merely because they are black. Their black privilege has replaced white privilege (they both cancel out each other without producing anything of worth).

Now let’s get dirty and to the point: It is disturbing that now Madison Avenue advertisers and corporations have joined in to advance Marxism in the African American community while they bask in capitalism. This conclave of advertisers and corporations now praises BLMM and has caved into this hysteria to appease the black community without asking what real black people want. Real black people want law and order, school safety, home ownership, business and entrepreneurship, good schools, good jobs—you know, what any decent American regardless of race, color, or creed would want. They want the best for their families; however, BLMM states that the nuclear family is white supremacist and must be done away with. This is right out of the playbook of communism. Destroy the family.  No matter how much BLMM claims to protest over George Floyd, it is anti-male and anti-father. BLMM follows the credo of Karl Marx who stated that religion is the opium of the people. So, it is no accident that even churches and Christianity (staples in the black community) are prime targets of BLMM and Antifa.

It is naïve to think that the powers-that-be in the NFL and NBA and the conclave of advertisers and corporations really believe this BLMM-Antifa tenets. They know damn well that the black community cannot sustain their businesses as consumers. BECAUSE, the black community is po (can’t even afford the ‘or). These advertisers and corporations move on FEAR which is catalytic in their irrationality in funding a Marxist movement in the black community. It is their public relations move not to look racist. They have been sufficiently bullied; furthermore, they know they can capitalize on the fact that the black community reacts; it is emotional.

Notice that BLMM and Antifa or any other Soros-backed group did not go into the Hispanic community (Look at how the Hispanics rose up to save Goya Foods with a ‘buy-cot’ to stamp out Antifa and BLMM’s boycott of this Hispanic company which employs over 4,000 of their own and others); they did not go into a Japanese or Chinese-American community; they did not go into a Jewish community; they did not go into a Native American community; or even to be totally absurd—into a Martian community.  Why? Because the black community is easy.  It reacts.  All you have to do is yell ‘racism’ and that’ll do it. This is a hard thing to say; yet, it is the cold-blooded truth. Advertisers and corporations have poured millions via Black Lives Matter-Marxists to keep the ‘natives from being restless’ and to keep their own capitalism intact which means in the long run, they do not give a damn about this nation or the value system of vision and hard work which made it possible for “Wealth of a Nation”.  Yet, they pay millions to bring this “sh—t” into the black community.

This 21st Century black community is economically and intellectually stagnated in the same manner you find in Orwell’s “Animal Farm.” Everyone all of the world knows in the long run that protest in the black community goes nowhere except into oblivion only to raise its ugly head to march or riot. How long do you march? How long do you riot? How long do you blame slavery? Slavery is NOT unique and exclusive to blacks. Every race at one time or another in world history has endured slavery. You do not get a get-out-of-the-human race card by having slave ancestors. The world owes you nothing.

Blacks should remember the history of slavery, but must not live every day in that history which stagnates today and annihilates tomorrow. This black generation has already negated the gains. Previous black generations did not see themselves as victims but rather as Overcomers who demanded the American Dream. They were taught to be two or three times better in their skills and education. That value of education served as an economic framework to participate in capitalism. I’ve often said that socialism is a lazy man’s capitalism. BLMM proves my point. It takes little brain cells to destroy and a lot more to build. We need to OVERCOME.

Let’s wrap this up. We do not condone Marxism in the black community. These black athletes have butterfly lives. In fact, with all their foolishness of thinking they have won something, they need to sit their black asses down and think. You don’t let some group of paid agitators come in and “F” over your community or even for that matter, you don’t let advertisers and corporations in their fear place a Marxist group in a leadership capacity in the black community. We doubt that millennials know the true history of Marxism, of Stalin, of Mao Zedong or even such black leaders as Idi Amin or the ones who slaughtered Rwandans, or those who destroyed their citizens in the name of Marxism/socialism/communism. Extreme groups on either Left or Right are implosive and will take down everybody. (Watch South Africa as it disintegrates with its new government of socialism).

At the end of the day, those NFL, NBA, advertisers and corporations powers-that-be with  common sense may be silent now and/or pretending to be silent but they will come to their senses and begin to replace these elite black athletes who have done little but bitch and jumped on a BLMM Antifa bandwagon that no sensible American regardless of race, color, or creed would jump on.  Common sense will not let these black pseudo progressives destroy the most prosperous nation which still remains a world beacon for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Dream.

Let it be understood that we will fight BLMM and Antifa by any means necessary. Yes, we will ‘Lift Our Voice and Sing’ while also singing the National Anthem. We don’t give a damn how many millions advertisers and corporations fund BLMM with or in spite of any blackball of ourselves because of our editorial stand. (We’ve gone through it before). We are Americans. Don’t tread on US.

To those black Americans who get it, get on the Ark. To those black Americans who don’t. Let the Flood come.

It is time for advertisers and corporations to get the hell out of advancing Marxism/socialism in the black community. It is time for sports to get out of politics. It is time for sports to put fans first. It is time to be pro-America.

Time for ANTIFA to Leave the Black Community!

By Arelya J. Mitchell, Publisher/Editor-In-Chief

It is time to stop ANTIFA! It is time for mainstream media to STOP calling the chaos the George Floyd protest movement. This is no longer about George Floyd. This is about ANTIFA (the new KKK) which is advancing their agenda of Democrat Socialism on the back of the black community. There is a reason why you see no black leaders come out. The riots also advance their agenda. The more riots, the more they believe will advance the Democrat Party. In other words, there is NO black leadership. It has subjugated itself with what used to be the Democrat Party, the radical left, ANTIFA, and whatever trash is sponsoring ANTIFA. This black leadership does not care that black-owned businesses and small businesses are being destroyed or that this is a coup to destroy the United States of America. Even during war time amid Jim Crow, black citizens always fought to preserve this nation—warts and all. Why? Because it is still home—warts and all! ANTIFA and the trash sponsoring it know that African Americans will vote for and support anything with ‘Democrat’ attached to it, even when it is attached to that euphemism called Democrat Socialism. Even when it is attached to the lie called Democrat Socialism. ANTIFA knows that blacks will not question anything connected to the Democrat Party. ANTIFA and the trash sponsoring it have counted on this. ANTIFA’s hatred for this nation is beyond party lines, beyond the President, beyond reason. It is time to STOP ANTIFA from raping the Black community to ruin this nation, to ruin livelihoods, to ruin dreams. Yes, there is police brutality by a few bad apples and the issue should be addressed. BUT, it is time to follow the money and find WHO is sponsoring ANTIFA, a group of thugs that creates chaos. ANTIFA is nothing; ANTIFA creates nothing! Time to find the snake and cut off the head before this nation is reduced to a third-world nation and before the black community is further raped by it. Now is the time for decent, hard-working Black Americans to take back their community and RE-BUILD. Black leadership will not speak out against ANTIFA because ANTIFA is part of the rot which has now taken root in what used to be the Democrat Party. THINK about it. Have you heard any black leader even utter the word ANTIFA? Have you? Or any word against ANTIFA? ANTIFA is part of the rot inside the Democrat Party which now has a stronghold on black leadership and yes, even black ministers to the extent that to speak out against ANTIFA is to speak out against the Democrat Party. We all know in the black community that the Democrat Party has been held sacred to the point of blaspheme. Never mind that ANTIFA deliberately burned down a D.C. church to send the message that it has no respect for churches. Any church! The new Democrat Party has purged and censored black representatives such as Vernon Jones, Karen Whitsett, and John DeBerry (who is also a minister). These lone black officeholders in the spirit of Dr. King would not go along with their agenda. With the same venom of a rogue police who murdered George Floyd, ANTIFA has put its knee on the neck of the black community so it cannot breathe. Have you even heard Gov. Cuomo or Bill DeBlasio or any pseudo-liberal Democrat of a big city denounce ANTIFA or even use the word ANTIFA? You have not. ANTIFA which claims to be Anti-fascism is in fact fascism, and a fascism which is quickly claiming the black lives that truly matter under the guise of the Democrat Party, under the guise of bailing out the looters in the name of George Floyd. Black-owned and small businesses are not being bailed out. ANTIFA is the leftist KKK which seeks to control blacks by any means necessary to advance its agenda. Again, we ask mainstream media to STOP labeling this violence as a George Floyd Protest. It is not! It is an ANTIFA protest. It is time to dismantle ANTIFA; it is time to destroy ANTIFA, and rebuild these United States of America! We say to ANTIFA and the Trash that sponsors it “Don’t tread on US (United States)!”
