MALCOLM X: THE HOUSE NEGRO AND THE FIELD NEGRO

november 19, 2008

Så hvad var det Malcolm X (fvmh) mente når han snakkede om de to forskellige typer af “negroes”, the house negro og the field negro ?

Til jer som ikke ved det (eller som tror I ved det) kan tjekke dette korte klip ud fra en tale af Malcolm X. Hvis I hellere/både vil læse talen, så er det teksten forneden, som skal læses:

“Back during slavery, when Black people like me talked to the slaves, they didn’t kill ’em, they sent some old house Negro along behind him to undo what he said. You have to read the history of slavery to understand this. There were two kinds of Negroes. There was that old house Negro and the field Negro. And the house Negro always looked out for his master. When the field Negroes got too much out of line, he held them back in check. He put ’em back on the plantation. The house Negro could afford to do that because he lived better than the field Negro. He ate better, he dressed better, and he lived in a better house. He lived right up next to his master – in the attic or the basement. He ate the same food his master ate and wore his same clothes. And he could talk just like his master – good diction. And he loved his master more than his master loved himself. That’s why he didn’t want his master hurt. If the master got sick, he’d say, “What’s the matter, boss, we sick?” [Laughter] When the master’s house caught afire, he’d try and put the fire out. He didn’t want his master’s house burned. He never wanted his master’s property threatened. And he was more defensive of it than the master was. That was the house Negro. But then you had some field Negroes, who lived in huts, had nothing to lose. They wore the worst kind of clothes. They ate the worst food. And they caught hell. They felt the sting of the lash. They hated their master. Oh yes, they did. If the master got sick, they’d pray that the master died. If the master’s house caught afire, they’d pray for a strong wind to come along. This was the difference between the two. And today you still have house Negroes and field Negroes. I’m a field Negro.”

Manden var så klog. ALT hvad han sagde var fornuftigt og rigtigt. Han var ikke bange for at sige sandheden og for at forsvare sit folk.

Black Is Beautiful

oktober 3, 2008

Vi ser tit sorte kvinder (og mænd), der benægter og hader deres sorte identitet ved at glatte og farve deres hår, så de kan ligne den hvide mand og kvinde. Det irriterer mig grænseløst. Vær glad for dit afrohår, vær glad for din sorte skønhed. Omfavn din sorte identitet. Black is Beautiful! Know yourself, love yourself. Break the mental chains.

Det lille klip nedenfor er taget fra Tyra Banks talkshow, hvor en koreansk pige har fået opereret sine øjenlåg, for at ligne den hvide kvinde mere. Og Tyra indrømmer rent faktisk, at hun farver og glatter sit hår for at komme et skridt nærmere på den hvide kvindes udseende. Det skuffer mig meget, for hun er en rigtig intelligent kvinde. Men hun indrømmer det i det mindste (som indtil videre er den eneste der har gjort det). Respekt for det!

Klippet nedenfor er Malcolm X’ (fvmh) tale om netop dette emne. Manden er så klog. Lyt godt efter.

Jeg har plukket nogle kommentarer om Malcolm X. Her er nogle få:

This is the man, 16 years ago who woke me up and I love him for it! He is a true Internationalist Revolutionary Hero who has yet got the due respect that he deserves. I could only wish and hope that his message reaches the population in general and the Black population in particular. Obama is not the savior,he is a chump!

We lost a great leader in Malcolm X in 1965. I was only 4 years old. Malcolm X was the best critical thinker. He was the one who started the Black Power movement. Even James Brown wrote a song “Say It Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud” in 1968. Malcolm X’s words contributed to black people loving who they are, loving that they came from the richest continent in the world. Africa is the cradle of civilization. It is where all humans derived. BALCK PEOPLE are the ORIGINAL HUMAN BEINGS.

This man is/was the greatest in my book!! he’s not going to get the Malcolm X holidays and all..but we know why, i like the Malcolm X way. Malcolm X don’t need no white people to put him on a pedestal. He spoke his words and spoke the truth and then he got killed. I love you Malcolm.

malcolm embraces the true sentiments of blacks. Although martin was extremely courageous i beleive he had a sub-conscience fear of whites. He loved them while they slaughtered millions of our brothers. Raped millions of women and daughters. and had it not been for men like malcolm, huey p. newton, etc.our community as a whole would surely be torn asunder

Blaxploitation

Blaxploitation

Blaxploitation

“Blaxploitation” af Hasan Salaam. Lyrics :

It’s a new day, but shit don’t change.
Plantation, politics and capital gain,
through trials and tribulations.
It’s hard to maintain.
As we push forward, it’s just more of the same.
Hip Hop selling products from Pepsi to champagne.
Advertisers, bad advisors abandon their campaign.
Soon as the dollar’s made,
they on the money train,
Sweeping through our demographics
like rocks of cocaine.
Excessive compulsive, self-indulgence,
impulsive consumerism, and that shit’s repulsive!
The markets like a carcus to a flock of vultures,
salivating at the chance to exploit our culture…

[Chorus]
It’s Blaxploitation – exagerration, infatuation, love-hate relation.
We do the work, but who gets the payments
Our 40 Acres, Our Reparations!

That’s how it is. But shit dont change.
Plantations, politics and capital gain.
For the right price of fortune and fame,
who be rappin in black face
for bling and a chain?
Go ahead and do the math
Ice, floss and flash,
used to worship gold
now praying to platinum calf.
After the cash, whats fuckin with that?
Oh mighty dollars, replaced Allah
so holla back!
21 gun salute, Let your pistols clap.
Just as long as the violence is black on black.
Glorify crack, then it’s a rap.
A million sold for your soul,
if there’s a price for that.
Vanilla Ice and Hammer,
hip hop or propaganda?
It’s mainstream now; shit bumps in Montana.
White boys in Iowa call each other ‘nigga’.
They said it wouldnt last y’all…
come on, go figure.

[Chorus]

It’s a new day, and somethin gotta change.
Plantation, politics and capital gain.
Modern day slaves with a mind full of chains,
and overseers will never be
loosenin’ up our reigns.
Black, Brown, Red and Yellow
left unable to plan.
Glass ceilings and jail bars make it hard to advance.
Amerikkka never gave brother Malcolm a chance,
till they wanted 33 cents for their government stamps.
Japanese Americans locked in concentration camps,
Indigenous people stocked in reservation lands,
The colonization just started in Afghanastan,
the world is at war and its the fault of Uncle Sam…

[Chorus]

Jeg elsker den sang!
