The Pacification Of Ferguson

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! To the point…

How many Ferguson, Missouri police officers are Black? Don’t the Ferguson citizens want to become police officers? That’s one way to end racist police terror.

How many members of the Ferguson, Missouri town/city council are Black? Don’t registered voters of Ferguson want to go into politics?

Will there ever be a Black person as mayor of Ferguson? I’m not playing the Race Card; just saying. Citizens will have to overcome their inertia and self-defeat to change the future. If things don’t change soon, Ferguson will continue to be pacified by a predominate White Citizens Council.

This is what one gets when you read Frantz Fanons‘ ‘Wretched of the Earth’ book.  Until neXt time…

Africa Did Not Protect Us

…will she in the future?

Greetings fellow zobopians! Still reading my copy of a Frantz Fanon book. Reading Fanons’ ‘Wretched of the Earth’ will get one to thinking. Especially this golden nugget of thought:

The continent of Africa was supposed to protect its people from the hostile environment of colonialism and slavery. EPIC FAILURE! Instead, Mother Africa gave free rein to its malevolent instincts; the selling of humans to other humans with ships.

Meanwhile, the colonial mother only protected the African from itself, from its ego, its physiology, its biology, and its ontological misfortune. Colonialism only protected its own social group, (the European), and its own profit.

If Mother Africa can not or will not provide and protect its own citizens, then Africa doesn’t deserve them or itself. Continent Africa should read Frantz Fanons’ ‘Wretched of the Earth’. It could use the lesson for its own future. As for the people of the African Diaspora in the Western hemisphere…that’s another story.

Thanks for reading…until neXt time…

I Think Frantz Fanon Saw The Future

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! Yes, I think medical specialist and intellectual Frantz Fanon, (Black Skin, White Masks) saw into the future. I’m reading his other book, Wretched of the Earth, and it’s almost as if he saw into the minds of modern day Black American or African revolutionaries. Either we didn’t read Mr. Fanons’ book correctly or we just keep on making the same pathetic mistakes over & over. Anyway, not to get all preachy, follow my Twitter feed @zobop_republic to read #FrantzFanon quotes.

Until that day…

Release Us From Hate

Leave a comment

Greetings fellow zobopians! Sorry for the delay in a new post. I’ve been reading a new book on Freakonomics and Frantz Fanon (Black Skin, White Mask). I actually found the Frantz Fanon book more interesting. I’ve read the first Freakonomic books years ago anyway. I don’t think I’m missing anything. Anyway…here’s some food for thought:
