The Black Race and Self-Perception

“If you can define the self-perception of a race, you can define its future for generations.”

- Burgess Owens

 

The visionary, industrious, Christian and segregated Black community of the early to mid 1960’s understood and embraced the importance of a positive self-perception. It was this same recognition that drove millions of young patriotic Black men throughout our nation’s history to be among the first to volunteer when our nation went to war. It was reflected in their actions on the field of battle—courage, patriotism, faith, tenacity and love for race, God and country.

It has been recorded throughout the annals of American history beginning with our nation’s first martyr—an ex-slave and free Black man Crispus Attucks—in its fight for Independence in 1770. Our history records, among its host of proud war veterans, over 5,000 Black men who fought as patriots during the Revolutionary War.

We read of the courageous march south to battle the Confederate Army by the All-Black, 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Unlike their white counterparts, they understood from the beginning that they would be offered NO quarter if captured alive.

The importance of projecting a positive self-perception was seen with the 332nd Fighting Group nicknamed "Hell Fighters" by their German enemy, who received France’s highest military honor, the Croix de Guerre, during WWII. My dad and uncles were among the 125,000 proud Black American volunteers who, throughout their entire lives, considered their decision to serve during WWII as their greatest honor.

Our past Black generations understood instinctively that they were fighting the battle of racism on two fronts:

The most obvious was their fight against the Democratic Party’s racist Jim Crow laws, intimidation by its terrorist arm, the KKK, and its demeaning messaging of abortion by Black and White Democratic eugenicists.

The second battle, fighting to maintain and grow its positive self-perception, was not as easily measured. In hindsight, we can see the initial success of their mission. It is portrayed in pictures like the one of educated, disciplined and intelligent young WWII Black Tuskegee Airmen whose tenacity and courage earned the respect of White B-17 Fortress pilots, whose lives they protected and saved.

It was the understanding of the power of perception that allowed the Martin Luther King Jr. generations to stay true to the strategy of non-violence, refusing to retaliate when every emotional instinct would justify them doing so. Its leaders would lead demonstrations and often be jailed wearing white shirts, black ties and jackets—all for the sake of perception.

They fought against negative racist stereotyping with their appearance, their command of the English language, their emotional discipline and their Judeo-Christian love that allowed them to forgive and move forward. They had faith in the American Promise that these actions would soften the hearts of our nation and defeat the hateful and demeaning perception assigned by the southern Democratic Party.

They were correct in their faith in the American people.

What exactly were racist stereotypes that they were fighting during that era? It was the portrayal of an inferior, dependent and monkey-linked race. It was a race projected as sloppy in appearance and dress, uneducated, inarticulate, incapable of critical thinking, easy to “herd” into groupthink, physically, emotional and sexually undisciplined, reckless breeders. But, boy, do they LOVE to sing and dance.

This demeaning stereotype, once defeated by MLK’s generation, has reared is ugly head once again in the setting of BET (Black Entertainment TV), 100% owned and controlled by wealthy and powerful White Liberal/Socialist Democrats. Their three billion dollar purchase in 2001 gave Sumner Redstone and the Viacom Corp unfettered access to the urban Black community. They then proceeded for the next 15 years to fire-hose this community nationally with anti-White, anti-police, anti-American, anti-woman, anti-family liberal FILTH. It has resulted in the fermenting of hatred and distrust for police authority and a disdain for our American culture. As Viacom shines the light of unaddressed Black Misery as a political strategy, it has increased the dependency and loyalty of the Black urban community as a voting block for the Democratic Party. Predictably omitted are the facts that at the root of all Black misery, as far back as 70 years, are Anti-Black Democratic policies.

Within the BET website can be seen the dark and empathy-free heart of the White Socialist Democratic owners of BET, who have successfully re-established the racist stereotypes previously eradicated. The White racist perception of the Black race can be seen in BET’s featured star, a rapper that young urban fatherless boys will soon seek to emulate. It is the tattooed face and neck of a young man called “Young Thug.” With a tribal-like ring through his nose and inarticulate speech patterns, he has a continual presence on BET’s gossip page discussing his reckless breeding habits, accumulation of “baby mommas” and the babies who he refuses to support. His filthy language, filthy mind and disdain for commitment and respect for women is presented to our young Black girls and boys as normal—although the cowardly, wealthy White Wizard, hiding behind the curtain of Blackness, would never tolerate his presence around their family or living in their mixed neighborhood of Democratic elitists.

The 2016 White Liberal Democratic owners of BET have portrayed for 15 years a perception of Black Americans that remarkably mimics the racist Democratic-controlled south of the early to mid-1900’s—sloppy in appearance and dress, uneducated, inarticulate, incapable of critical thinking, easy to “herd” into groupthink, physically, emotional and sexually undisciplined, reckless breeders. But, boy, do they LOVE to sing and dance.

Within the website of Viacom, aka, BET is also seen the true cowardice and bullying of the White racist Wizard as they utilize a strategy proven effective in 1930’s by Margaret Sanger—The Negro Project. With the use of a Black front, they pay like-minded Socialist Black Americans to demean, attack and denigrate other Blacks who are deemed a threat to their plantation-like groupthink. Typically, these are articulate, educated, successful, Christian, patriotic and thoughtful Black Americans offering alternatives.

Ultimately the restoration of the Black community will rely on the delivery of this message by committed Black Conservative Americans. Other Americans can support this effort by helping to shed light on those who have purposely used misery and hopelessness to empower themselves and their party.

It is time we call Viacom CEO Phil Dauman, Sheri Redstone and the all-White Democratic Board of Viacom from behind the curtain of Blackness to explain their organizations decades-old strategy for fermenting the Marxist and racist hate group, Black Lives Matter. Every time a policemen is assassinated and another young Black American radicalized through their BET anti-police, anti-American website, this corporation and its leaders should be held accountable.

Only when the light and eyes of the American people are on these “Corporate Hate Breeders” will we be able to grant a level of safety to our police nationally and stem the divisive nature of the Democratic Party-driven Socialist/Marxist movement within our country.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
