On Blast!!!!

Conservative author Shelby Steele has criticized Senator Barack Obama. He accuses Obama of being an bargainer who makes whites feel comfortable because he (Obama) does not make them (whites) feel racist.   

 This is from an interview with Sandip Roy.

New America Media, Q&A, Sandip Roy, Posted: Feb 06, 2008

Sandip Roy: You say in your book that the buzz that he’s fresh and new and unconventional — that’s the buzz. But in fact you say, he is utterly conventional. What do you mean by that?

Shelby Steele: He is what I call a ‘bargainer’. Bargainers are blacks that enter the mainstream by basically making a bargain with white America. Saying, "I will give you the benefit of the doubt. I will not presume you are a racist, if you will not hold my race against me." Bill Cosby was a great bargainer; Oprah Winfrey is a great bargainer. Barack Obama is the first one to bring bargaining into politics. It is very effective because Whites like that bargain. They don’t want to have race rubbed in their face every minute. They respond to bargainers with warm feelings, with support, with affection. We usually say bargainers have some special qualities. Oprah, again, is a good example.

Chance: Shelby Steele is biracial, his mother is white and father is black. Barack Obama is also biracial — white mother and black African father (Kenya). Shelby was born in 1946; he grew in the Jim Crow era. Steele self identifies as African American (black).
The if your black know your place idea was rampant during the Jim Crow era until the success of the 1960s civil rights movement. Shelby tries to pander to whites by saying many unpleasant things about blacks, and it has gotten him only books deals, television appearances, speaking engagements, job, income, and some attention from white conservatives. Some of the unpleasant things Shelby says are accurate and true – the reality is, that Shelby is seen by white conservatives and blacks both as a type of “UNCLE TOM” who cashes in by criticizing blacks in front of whites. 

When Shelby criticizes black Americans in his books, essays, and columns as being their own worst enemy due to their cultural pathologies, bitterness about slavery, out of wedlock births, and crime whites and blacks can intuitively sense the psychological emotional state that Steele was in when he said or says these things. Another way it can be proven that whites also — view Shelby Steele as a lower type black man who cashes in financially by criticizing blacks — is the fact, that white conservatives and white liberals do not give him the same type of special attention as they give Barack Obama.

They have not elevated Shelby up to the level of national hero who can bring in new life to America and American politics. Shelby is seen as a black man who took the road of the easy by criticizing blacks to get an income out of the conservatives. I feel that white people do not respect a black man who takes this road, yes they will help him gain income money, book deals, job, and some fame but they do not view him highly and morally superior. They see these types of blacks as confirming that blacks will betray each other on a heart beat to gain some type of materialism from who ever can help them gain it.

Even though whites use these types of blacks — they do not respect them or view them as equals. Shelby said that Obama is conventional what he means by conventional is that Obama uses the technique called pandering to whites but this is not true. Obama is not conventional at all, and this is why many white conservatives and liberals like him. He is different from the “UNCLE TOM COON” who betrays African Americans so whites can elevate him to a higher status political, economically, book deals, job opportunity, etc.

If Obama was conventional like the average African American he would be sitting on the sidelines asking friends — which presidential candidate do you think is going to win instead of being a presidential candidate himself.

Shelby said Obama was the first to bring bargaining into politics. Look it is like this, bargaining has always been apart of politics former presidents Richard Nixion, Ronald Reagan, and many presidents before them bargained racially with voters. Also, Obama is not really bargaining at all. What has happened is whites and black Americans on average are not use to dealing with a politician unless race in brought into it. They are not use to dealing with a politician like Barack Obama who seems to show little interest in race and ethnicity when it comes to politics.

Shelby and many blacks like him have been bargaining with white conservatives for a long time, by saying things about blacks that white conservatives are afraid to say. The world of “UNCLE TOM” has its limits, and Shelby has reached the limits. And, it is white conservative Americans who determine the limits, go a problem with it go confront them. In life and politics it is partially about trade offs (bargaining).

The fact that many whites have not elevated Shelby Steele and other blacks of his character to a higher national level proves that whites whether conservative, liberal, libertarians, etc do not value blacks like Shelby higher than they value the Barack Obama type. An Uncle Tom, coon, Sambo, criticizing blacks to get some benefits out of whites, etc only reminds whites of their secret racism and injustices against African Americans.          

Shelby is Jealous because Obama did not take the road of a coon, Sambo, and Uncle Tom to get to where he is today. This also proves that many whites have some good in them, and blacks like Steele secretively view whites as very racists as a collective group. If Shelby and those blacks like him — did not view whites as secretively racist there would be not need to practice the art of “UNLCE TOM.”

Uncle Tom requires white racist support because whites often have the goods. Steele is in shock that Barack has pulled it off with out the help of practicing Tommy (Uncle Tom).
If Obama acts like Shelby white conservatives and liberals will disregard him. White America likes Obama because he was not raised in African American culture, he was in international culture and white culture, he is a young intelligent man, does not come across as the angry black man, he seems like he is for all people regardless of race, he and he currently does not come across as an Uncle Tom.

Shelby wants Obama to answer questions about race — so it will stir up white fear that Obama maybe in favor of African Americans only. 

 

Sandip Roy: Would you say he was always a bargainer, or is that a mantle he’s taken on more as he’s become politically active?

Shelby Steele: When Barack Obama was, I think in his junior year in high school, he said that he noticed that white people liked black people who weren’t angry. He knew even then, in terms of bargaining, he was ‘to the manor born’. Again, this is an old mast: Louis Armstrong was a great bargainer, so in that sense Obama represents an old paradigm, rather than a new one.

Chance: That is a good observation on the part of Obama. People are more willing to listen to you if you don’t make them feel you are angry at them. If many Uncle Toms of the African American race learned this they would not have to humiliate themselves in public by doing what they do. Good observation Barack. 
        

Sandip Roy: But can he be anything but a bargainer?

Shelby Steele: The other option is that he can be an individual-be himself. A good example of that was Harold Ford in Tennessee, and Michael Steele (no relation to me) in Maryland. These are two men who ran as individuals, and did very well, came very close and my guess is both of them will have a great political future.

Chance: Well Shelby, how do you know that Obama is not being an individual? Michael Steele ran for the senate in 2006, and lost to Democratic congressman Ben Cardin. Part of the reason Steele lost is because was seen as a black man pandering to whites. Michael Steele ran a campaign commercial on that commercial he said his mother worked many years and she did not complain.

The expression she did not complain was understood by many Americans regardless of their ethnic background as Michael Steele pandering to white conservatives. He knew that many whites view blacks as complainers – so by saying that his mother did not complain it sent a subconscious message to potential white conservative voters that Michael Steele was willing to distance himself from blacks to get the white vote. Michael was playing the racial political bargaining game nothing more. Yet Shelby Steele accuses Barack Obama of playing the bargaining game. But hey bargaining is a part of life, and politics are apart of life. The Republican conservative Michael Steele lost his bid for the Senate, and was seen by whites and blacks regardless of their political affiliations as an worthless Uncle Tom. 

Harold Ford jr ran for the Senate in 2006, and lost Republican Bob Corker. He lost partially because Corker ran a commercial insinuating that Harold like white women and was a playboy. This caused some white men to think about a black man who is obsessed with white women, even though Harold ford is mixed race. Another reason Harold lost was because some black women in Tennessee where upset that Harold dated white women. So these black women did not vote. Harold lost by 3% margin it was the closest race in the state of Tennessee history.       

Harold was being his individual self but I would say that Michael Steele was not Michael was simply pandering to white conservatives.

  Sandip Roy: But the other traditional role is the challenger role.

Shelby Steele: Right. Challengers are blacks that never give whites the benefit of the doubt. Who say, ‘We’re going to presume that you are racist until you prove otherwise’; Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson are challengers. They did not go far in their presidential bids, because America simply is not going to embrace or feel warm or feel gratitude toward challengers. So their campaigns were more symbolic than anything else.

Chance: You are correct Shelby about Jackson and Sharpton – but the fact that whites embrace Obama means that they see something different about him. The major difference is culture; Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Shelby Steele have been raised in African American culture, and therefore their opinions about arce relations in America are determined by their experiences in America. Obama was not raised as an African American; he was raised in Indonesian culture and white American culture.

So Obama has different views on life in America, and is not contaminated with all of the psychological baggage from poor race relations in America between blacks and whites.

At least Jackson and Sharpton chose to fight for African Americans and civil rights. While Shelby is seen by whites and blacks as a bitter man who chose the easy way by becoming a standard black stick up man. Who criticizes blacks to get some benefits out of whites.

Sandip Roy: In this race, for example, would a woman like Hillary Clinton be a bargainer or would she be a challenger?

Shelby Steele: I think this is a mask for the most part, that blacks wear. Hillary is so well known, and has been around for such a long time at this point, that she’s primarily an individual.
          
Chance:
Hillary is an individual in general I agree – but it has a lot to do with her being a female also. She does not have to pander whites that much because she is a white woman. If she was a white male it would be harder to escape the racial political bargaining game.
Obama is an individual that is why he is where he is today. There are many African American politicians but they are not as popular as Obama because they come across as pro black identified or either an Uncle Tom. Only a few of them are neutral but they are not well known or popular like Obama.   

 Sandip  Roy: Because, you say, people think of race as something to go home to at night. You yourself, like Obama, are a product of a bi-racial relationship. Did you not feel the need for race being something to go home to at night?

Shelby Steele: I certainly did. But I’m older than Obama. I was raised in segregation, and my father raised me. I had an intact family, a blessing. My father was a hero of mine, still is. So I was not as insecure, probably, because I wasn’t in the circumstance that Barack Obama was, nevertheless, I was to a degree. I talk about the fact that after college I went to work in East St. Louis, one of the poorest black cities in the country. Obama went to the South Side of Chicago and did community work and I worked in Great Society programs. I think we both wanted to do good things, but on another level we were trying to establish that authenticity and achieve that sense of belonging.

Chance: Yes, that is it Shelby you are the product of racial segregation because you were born before Obama. You have internalized all of those unpleasant experiences of growing up in America during the racist Jim Crow era. You use the methods that many psychologically defeated African American blacks use to get ahead by attacking blacks to gain something from white conservatives. This is one of the techniques that are the result of having grown up in African American culture during Jim Crow era.    

In the beginning you did a lot of work on the great society program but somewhere you realized it was not for you. So you left and started pandering.

The difference between you and Obama is — you were raised in African American culture and Obama was raised in Indonesian culture and white culture therefore you both have different views. Obviously currently many whites like Obama.  
 
Sandip Roy: Because, you say, a white parent is a stain of inauthenticity?

Shelby Steele: That is the way it is often interpreted. I saw in South Carolina, a young black teenager being interviewed, calling Obama a "Halfrican." When you come from an interracial family, in that way, the implication is that there’s something phony about you.
So, your interracial background is often perceived that way, by people who don’t take the time to stop and think.

Chance: Halfrican is a term used to describe someone who is biracial. Therefore, they are only half black and not just black only. Halfrican is often a complement. It is more troublesome to the ears of some people to hear Obama just called black, when he is part white.

 Sandip Roy: But what option does he have? Is it really about Barack Obama, or is it about us, (and by us, I mean people in the media), because we say things like, if blacks vote for Hillary Clinton, Obama is obviously not black enough to attract his natural constituency. But if they vote for him we’ll say, it’s not so much as they did in Nevada, it’s taken not so much as a sign of Obama the candidate as opposed to voting for a racial brother. So, it’s kind of "damned if you do, and damned if you don’t."

Shelby Steele: That’s right. It’s a tough one. He’s a bound man. Bound, I think on many levels. If Obama has made a mistake, it is that, I think he never should have bargained in the first place. He should have presented himself as an individual. I think back to the nineties; ’96- Colin Powell had an opportunity to run. He came very close to running against a weak Bill Clinton in ’96. My sense is that he would’ve won, and he would’ve won as an individual, not as a bargainer. He would’ve (said), "This is what I stand for, these are my convictions, these are my principles, take me or leave me, but I’m not offering a bargain one way or another, I’m not challenging, I’m just an individual.
  

Chance: Whites liked Colin Powell a lot, and Colin Powell is a conservative republican. Many whites like Brack Obama and Obama is a democrat. This proves that there is something about Obama that whites see that is different from many other blacks. Powell said that the Ronald Reagan administration was one the most racist administrations. Yet this did not anger many white conservatives. They view Colin Powell as man who speaks his mind and is very honest in his feelings and opinions.

Powell does not come across as an angry black man, this is one of the reasons whites listen to Powell when he criticizes whites, blacks, or whoever. Obama does not come across as angry at white folks, and they like and respect that. 

                                   Conclusion

Shelby Steele is biracial and Barack Obama is also. The difference between the two is that Shelby’s white ancestry is disabled meaning he is simply viewed as black by both white and black Americans. Shelby was raised to self identify black as his primary identity. So he has a stronger connection to African Americans than to white Americans. This also explains why he engages in some of the same defects like Uncle Tom, Coon, criticizing blacks to get some benefits out of whiter conservatives, etc etc he views himself as an outsider who is not accepted main stream white Americans because he is an African American. So only way to get in is to be an Uncle Tom which is an inferior status.

Barack Obama was raised in Indonesian culture and white American culture — so his white side is not disabled because he was raised by his white mother mainly. When Obama came to Kansas he lived with his white grandmother and grandfather thus being exposed to white culture. When he was a little boy his mother remarried, he second husband was Indonesian and they pout Barack in an Indonesian school. His white cultural side was the first culture he was introduced to. He has always had a connection to white people by way of culture and blood. Obama went in search of his blackness because he was raised white and international – so he had to find that side of himself. He went to Kenya, Africa to visit his black father (Barack Obama Sr.). He met his father and they talked about a variety of things.

White Americans recognize that Obama’s white cultural side is not disabled, and they feel comfortable around him because of it. Wherefore, in many African Americans and some biracial Americans their white cultural and ancestry is disabled. They embrace their blackness more. This is mainly due to the ODR (one drop rule). If you only embrace your black ancestry or one side of any of your ancestries then you will be seen as a member of what ever side you embrace. 

The reason an African American politician with the exception of Colin Powell, has never been able to get to the level of Obama is because they embrace their blackness more and disregard their white and other ancestries. Colin Powell let it be known that because he is seen as light skin, and not fully black it has helped whites feel comfortable with him. 

Embrace all of your ancestries, because they are apart of you. 

  Why We Are Excited About Obama and Why He Can’t Win

New America Media, Q&A, Sandip Roy, Posted: Feb 06, 2008

Editor’s Note: Barack Obama’s impressive showing in the Super Tuesday primaries also highlights his biggest challenge. His strong support among African Americans might have helped him in states like Georgia but could trap him in the very paradigm he seeks to transcend. Shelby Steele is the author of ‘A Bound Man – Why We are Excited About Obama And Why He Can’t Win.’ He spoke to UpFront host Sandip Roy.

SR: You say in your book that the buzz that he’s fresh and new and unconventional — that’s the buzz. But in fact you say, he is utterly conventional. What do you mean by that?

Shelby Steele: He is what I call a ‘bargainer’. Bargainers are blacks that enter the mainstream by basically making a bargain with white America. Saying, "I will give you the benefit of the doubt. I will not presume you are a racist, if you will not hold my race against me." Bill Cosby was a great bargainer; Oprah Winfrey is a great bargainer. Barack Obama is the first one to bring bargaining into politics. It is very effective because Whites like that bargain. They don’t want to have race rubbed in their face every minute. They respond to bargainers with warm feelings, with support, with affection. We usually say bargainers have some special qualities. Oprah, again, is a good example.

SR:Would you say he was always a bargainer, or is that a mantle he’s taken on more as he’s become politically active?

SS: When Barack Obama was, I think in his junior year in high school, he said that he noticed that white people liked black people who weren’t angry. He knew even then, in terms of bargaining, he was ‘to the manor born’. Again, this is an old mast: Louis Armstrong was a great bargainer, so in that sense Obama represents an old paradigm, rather than a new one.

SR: But can he be anything but a bargainer?

SS: The other option is that he can be an individual-be himself. A good example of that was Harold Ford in Tennessee, and Michael Steele (no relation to me) in Maryland. These are two men who ran as individuals, and did very well, came very close and my guess is both of them will have a great political future.

SS: Right. Challengers are blacks that never give whites the benefit of the doubt. Who say, ‘We’re going to presume that you are racist until you prove otherwise’; Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson are challengers. They did not go far in their presidential bids, because America simply is not going to embrace or feel warm or feel gratitude toward challengers. So their campaigns were more symbolic than anything else.

SR: In this race, for example, would a woman like Hillary Clinton be a bargainer or would she be a challenger?

SS: I think this is a mask for the most part, that blacks wear. Hillary is so well known, and has been around for such a long time at this point, that she’s primarily an individual.

SR: But with Barack Obama, you write that he has been embracing the African American side, the black side of him, more and more. Can you give some examples of how he has been doing that?

SS: I talk about this in the first half of the book that looks closely at Obama. This has been something of an obsession all his life; he comes from an interracial background, and his father abandoned the family, his African father, when Barack was only two years old. So, in one stroke he lost a father and a racial identity. He was raised in Hawaii in a largely white community by a white mother, white grandmother, white grandfather. Well, nothing wrong with that, they raised him very well, as we can see he is a fine young man. On the other hand, Obama always felt the need to belong, to establish his authentic ‘blackness,’ to feel a part of the black community. It was almost to the point of obsession. If you read his first book "Dreams from My Father" you see the arc of his life is pretty much devoted to establishing his bona fides as a black person. Most people look at Obama and say, ‘Well, I like him because he seems to transcend race,’ and on one level he does. But, on another level he’s been pretty much obsessed with it, it’s very important to him.

SR: Because, you say, people think of race as something to go home to at night. You yourself, like Obama, are a product of a bi-racial relationship. Did you not feel the need for race being something to go home to at night?

SS: I certainly did. But I’m older than Obama. I was raised in segregation, and my father raised me. I had an intact family, a blessing. My father was a hero of mine, still is. So I was not as insecure, probably, because I wasn’t in the circumstance that Barack Obama was, nevertheless, I was to a degree. I talk about the fact that after college I went to work in East St. Louis, one of the poorest black cities in the country. Obama went to the South Side of Chicago and did community work and I worked in Great Society programs. I think we both wanted to do good things, but on another level we were trying to establish that authenticity and achieve that sense of belonging.

So, your interracial background is often perceived that way, by people who don’t take the time to stop and think.

Is it really about Barack Obama, or is it about us, (and by us, I mean people in the media), because we say things like, if blacks vote for Hillary Clinton, Obama is obviously not black enough to attract his natural constituency. But if they vote for him we’ll say, it’s not so much as they did in Nevada, it’s taken not so much as a sign of Obama the candidate as opposed to voting for a racial brother.

He should have presented himself as an individual. I think back to the nineties; ’96- Colin Powell had an opportunity to run. He came very close to running against a weak Bill Clinton in ’96. My sense is that he would’ve won, and he would’ve won as an individual, not as a bargainer. He would’ve (said), "This is what I stand for, these are my convictions, these are my principles, take me or leave me, but I’m not offering a bargain one way or another, I’m not challenging, I’m just an individual.

SR: But is that realistic in politics? You are trying to create a tribe, a constituency. As an individual, that seems even harder a challenge.

SS: If you play the race game in politics, it’s going to come back to bite you in some way. In the subtitle of the book I talk about why Obama can’t win. That’s one of the problems I think he’s going to have. This is the one thing bargainers never do: bargainers never tell you what they really and truly think, what their deepest convictions are. Obama has yet to do that. We don’t really yet know who he is, and what his deep principles are. So he’s, in that sense, not giving us a reason to support him for the presidency. We need to know: when will you take this country to war, when would you not take this country to war. What is your feeling about equality under the law and racial preferences – where do you stand on all of these? What principles are guiding you as you confront these issues? So, he’s saying: ‘Give me power without me telling you what I’m going to do with it’. That is something that’s got to catch up with him at some point.

SR:What do you think he represents to all the people, because the other part of your title is "Why we are excited about Obama"? Why are we excited?

SS: This is what interests me. We are excited about Obama because of what he represents, rather than because of who he is. We don’t know, really, who he is. You go to the Republican side, pick any one of those candidates, John McCain seems to be ahead at the moment. Well, you know who John McCain is. You know what his convictions are, you can take them, you can leave them. With Obama you don’t know that, you don’t know what his convictions are. He never articulates them. So he basically, again, is using bargaining to get this basic excitement going, to give himself a certain kind of charisma. But how far can he go with that? At some point you’ve got to do more.

SR: But, what does make people excited about him? Obama seems to have something special.

SS: I have thought all along that the Obama phenomena is much more about white America than it is about just one single man. No man can just, on the basis of his talents alone, generate that kind of excitement. Obama is a very talented politician, but what excites us, what excites white America especially, and has all along about Obama, is that here is an opportunity, at last, to vote for and support a black man for the presidency of the United States. To achieve this convergence of a black skin in the White House. This would prove, at least as their thinking goes, that America is no longer a racist society, that we have gotten beyond that ugly past that we had, that we’ve been redeemed in some way. When that kind of mantle sits on your shoulders, you are going to be a rock star. People are going to see a certain charisma there, that goes way beyond your abilities and talents.

SR: So whether he wins the nomination or not, what do you think the Obama candidacy has achieved in America?

SS: It could’ve achieved more, but Obama has made the point that this is a society, that America is now in 2008, a largely white society, that is quite willing and able to consider a black man for the presidency of that nation — to put a black man in the most powerful office in the world. That is a profound statement about American society. Again, I grew up in segregation and I can tell you, that was not the case back then. So, America’s come a long, long way in a relatively short time in the scope of history. Obama, because he is a plausible candidate, verifies that this change has occurred, and that is, I think the underlying significance.

SR: Thank you

 The four horsemen of the apocalypse

 

Chance writes: The book of revelation (the apocalypse of St John) is a book of prophecy, and it has very esoteric interpretations which are not easily understood by the average religious or non religious person of today. Often many religious teachers misinterpret many parts of this book also. The four horsemen of the sixth chapter of the book of revelation actually symbolizes war and the various racial groups that populate the planet.

 By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com

 

 Four Horsemen In The Book Of Revelation

 (the apocalypse)

 

Revelation 6th Chapter verses 1-12

 

The White Horse

 

Verse 1. And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. 2. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. 

    Commentary: The white horse represents the white race, the white race conquered many non-white countries all over the world. The bow represents weapons the white race used many weapons like cannons, guns, swords, etc when they conquered the world. Observe from the 16th century to 19th century whites used weapons to conquer other countries around the world. White countries even conquered other white countries and other colonies that belonged to other European white countries. England, France, Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, and Denmark are white European countries that conquered other countries around the world.

The United States of America was conquered by whites and in world war two America (United States Of America) fought against Japan and Germany and defeated both countries and their allies. So the white horse represents the white race and this means any white person living in any country on the planet this includes Europe, America, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and any other country that has whites. This verse is also talking about how White America continues to conquer the world by trying to spread America’s political power, culture, and influence into other countries. White America by doing this is keeping the conqueror tradition of their European forefather alive. 

               The Red Horse

  Rev 6: verse 3. And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.  

 Commentary: The Red horse represents – The Native American Indians, The Native Americans are the red race, but the white race conquered them. Whites now have the red warrior blood of war in them just like the Native Americans had the red warrior blood of their forefathers in them. White Americans now have this red warrior characteristic inside of them. And power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, who is it that sits on top of the red horse and who is the rider of the red horse? The American government sits on top of and rides the red horse.

 
As stated the American government is the rider of the red horse. The government is a powerful system that governs the United States of America, and the American government will have wars with other foreign countries.  The great sword represents powerful weapons; the United States government has many powerful weapons that it will use to fight with other foreign countries. There will be no peace on earth because America and other countries will be fighting with each other and millions will die. The United States of America will very soon experience blackening of the sky over America due to nuclear bombs from China.

 These explosions will blacken the sun from view the citizens of America will howl with pain, fear, suffering, and dread. The storm is gathering itself in preparation for this event. The sky will be filled with pitch black clouds people of America will mourn, cry tears, death will be everywhere, and great tribulations will fall upon America. The United States of America will not survive let the winds blow and let the storms rise. “Oh yes” these tribulations will come to pass.

       The Black Horse

 Rev 6: verse 5. And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. 

  Commentary: The Black horse represents – The black race, all dark skin racial groups, and brown skin racial groups. The black horse also represents honest labor. Africans, Arabs, Mestizo Hispanics (Mestizo Hispanic are brown skinned), India and all of central Asia (Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc) and all brown skin and dark skin racial groups are   represented by the black horse. Many members of these black and brown racial groups work hard for their daily bread, many members of these racial groups are very poor and they have the highest amount of poverty in the world percentage wise. There is often a lot of famine (lack of food) among black and brown racial groups too.  

          Balance in hand represents slavery to unfair job trades as we know these darker racial groups are more exploited by employers than any other skin complexions. The black and brown racial groups have many of their members exploited with lower wages, longer hours with little pay, seldom get a pay raise, etc they are like slaves in chains bound to work hard and for little like a slave. But many of them work and bring home what money they can to their families. 

      Rev 6: Verse 6. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

  Commentary: The hard work that humans do by way of jobs to obtain their daily bread. All humans from all racial and ethnic groups have to work hard for a living so they can feed themselves and their families.  

 
 The Pale Horse (Yellow Horse)

 Rev 6: Verse 7. And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8.And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

 
Commentary: The Pale horse represents – The Yellow race, the yellow race are the oriental Asians. The verse is talking specifically about the China the Chinese army is powerful and when world war three erupts China is going to kill millions of people. The war between the East and West will happen and the east will win, China and its allies will defeat America and its allies. The Chinese horse drags death and hell with him.

  This pale horse (yellow horse) is filled with anger and is furious and death, hell, and destruction are with him. The Chinese army is incredibly and terribly powerful china has all kinds of dangerous weapons and when China fights America and America’s military allies they will become afraid of China. America will have to use nuclear weapons on China and China’s allies because the Chinese army will have easily defeated America’s military. But China has nuclear weapons also, and is going to use them on America and America’s military allies. Russia will help America fight against the Chinese but China is going to destroy Russia also. The yellow horse is the most powerful of the four horses no one can beat the yellow horse when war erupts.

 
 China’s government is an angry and furious government and is going to destroy all countries that fight against. The Chinese, North Koreans, and Muslims will be allies against America and its allies. Due to the war many countries will have many of its citizens starve too death. And what little food is around people are going to fight and kill each other for it. Money will be worthless and yes China will be hit with nuclear atomic weapons by America but when the war is over China and its allies will be the winners. The East (China) will defeat the west (America and Europe). 

             Rev 6:12  And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun because black as sack cloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.

 
 Commentary: The radio active particles of the nuclear explosions will greatly alter the ozone layer of planet earth. Scientists already have proven that the earth’s ozone layer is not as thick as it used to be and more ultraviolet radiation from the sun is reaching the Earth. Over exposure to ultraviolet radiation, often referred to as “UV rays,” can cause skin cancer and other serious health effects. The nuclear explosions are going to release pandemonium on earth, and the ozone layer which acts like a filter to protect humans from the sun will no loner protect us from the sun because of the radio active particles from the nuclear atomic bombs.

 The radio active particles will finally destroy the ozone layer which is a filter that protects humans from the sun rays. When this filter becomes totally altered by the nuclear atomic explosions it will no longer classify and decompose the solar rays into light and fire. And because of this therefore, the result will be humans will see the sun turn black as a sack cloth of hair. Fear will be every where and some people will commit suicide great tribulations will on the earth. The nuclear atomic explosions will bring plagues, earthquakes, sea quakes, tidal waves, and terrible cataclysm. Calamities, Calamities, calamities, “Oh yes” let the THUNDER GROWL and let the FLOODS FLOW.  These trials and tribulations must come first in order for there to be peace on earth in a future day.

ONE DROP: My Father’s Hidden Life–A Story of Race & Family Secrets by Bliss Broyard

Two months before he died of cancer, renowned literary critic Anatole Broyard called his grown son and daughter to his side, intending to reveal a secret he’d kept all their lives and most of his own: he was black. Born in the French Quarter in 1920, Anatole began to conceal his racial identity after the family moved from New Orleans to the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn and his parents resorted to "passing" in order to get work. From his bohemian days in the cafés of Greenwich Village in the 1940s to his ascension in the ranks of the literary elite, he continued to maintain the façade.

Serving as a daily book critic for the New York Times for more than a decade, and as a columnist and editor at the New York Times Book Review for several years after that, Anatole was an influential voice in American culture. To his children he was a charming and attentive father who had strived to raise his family in the lush enclaves of Connecticut and Martha’s Vineyard, providing an upbringing far removed from his own childhood. But even as he lay dying, the truth was too difficult for him to admit, and it was finally their mother who told Bliss and Todd that their sheltered New England childhood had come at a price.

In her remarkable memoir, Bliss Broyard examines her father’s choices and the impact of this revelation on her own life. Seeking out unknown relatives in New York, Los Angeles, and New Orleans, she uncovers the 250- year history of her family in America, and chronicles her own evolution from privileged Wasp to a woman of mixed-race ancestry. The result is a beautifully crafted and touching portrait of her father, and a provocative examination of the profound consequences of racial identity.

   Black And White IQ Research

 
Chance: The black and white and test score gap is not fake, it is real. Many people say that it is, white racism, culture, and environment that continue to cause blacks to score lower than whites on tests. Also, some people say that the tests are bias and test ones ability to live successfully in white western culture.

The reality is, that blacks and non-whites live in a western white culture so their mental abilities should be tested and measured to see how successful they will become while living in a western culture. Also Northern Asians who are Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans come to America as children, and enter the school system. These immigrant Asian kids often have to learn English as a second language, and they take the same IQ test and they out score whites and blacks.
 
These Asian immigrant kids come from various Asian cultures and yet, they out score students who have been raised in western culture. As stated previously, the IQ test measure learned mental skills ability, and nothing more. The IQ test does not measure your innate genetic ability and is not looking for genetics at all. The mental ability is based upon the culture of the country and society you live in. In the western world you tested based upon western culture. Now, in Asia and Africa peoples mental abilities are tested based upon the countries they grow up in. This has nothing to do with inferiority or superiority; it simply has to do with how strong are your mental abilities.                      
 
  Professors Christopher Jencks and Meredith Phillips, wrote a book titled The Black-White Test Score Gap (published by WashingtonDC: Brookings Institution, 1998) the book explores the differences between the black and white IQ gap. The information in the book was thoroughly researched. It is a detailed collection of data and reports by various institutions, researchers, and authors. The book has fifteen chapters that are well written. This book is one of the most reliable collection of reports and research from credible institutions and researchers who have written about the IQ gap between blacks and whites.   

The gap appears at age 3 at the latest. It may well appear earlier but this has not been tested yet. The fact that the intelligence gap shows up at the age of three verifies that it can’t be culture or racism because children this young do not understand what culture is at the age of three.      
 
 
This is a summary of the introduction of the book titled The Black-White Test Score Gap. The summary is based upon the 47 page introduction of the book. 
 
Author Frank W. Sweet read the book and he put together the summary of the 47 page introduction below.

Summary Of the 47 page Introduction (The Black-White Test Score Gap)

 Two points need to be made immediately: the test gap is real and it has serious social consequences.
 
1. The Black-White test gap is real. It does not merely appear in one specific test nor in just a few particular tests. On the contrary, the gap appears in every test of those mental abilities that are important to success in Western culture. It appears in simple tests like counting backwards and in complex tests like the SAT. It appears in K-12 grades and in college graduation rates. It even appears in employers’ objective appraisals of on-the-job performance. The gap cannot be argued away by saying that it is culturally biased in that it measures only mental skills that are important in White society. Those skills are precisely the ones intended to be measured. Some people are misled because the media calls them “IQ” tests or “aptitude” tests as if they measured something innate. They do nothing of the sort. They measure learned mental skills, nothing more.

2. The test gap has serious social consequences. It imposes a crushing burden of incompetence, ignorance, and consequent poverty on the Black community. It also imposes a burden on U.S. society as a whole, which must deal with a host of social problems, from violent crime to child neglect, that spring from Black inability to fully contribute or produce.

Keeping those two points in mind—that the gap is both real and serious—examine the results of recent studies in three areas: preschool, grade school, and adolescence.

PRESCHOOL

3. The gap appears at age 3 at the latest. It may well appear earlier but this has not been tested yet.

4. The gap does not appear in unassimilated immigrants from sub-Saharan Africa.

5. The gap does not appear in unassimilated British West Indian immigrants of predominantly African ancestry.

6. The gap does not appear in unassimilated Latin American immigrants of predominantly African ancestry.

7. There is a slight correlation between gap width and skin tone.

8. There is no correlation between gap width and actual underlying African genetic admixture.

9. Children of wealthy Black families have essentially the same gap as children of poor Black families.

10. Children of college-educated Black families have essentially the same gap as children of uneducated Black families.

11. First-generation biracial children of a Black mother and White father have the same gap as children with two Black parents.

12. First-generation biracial children of a White mother and Black father have a slightly less severe gap.

13. Black children raised by two White adoptive parents have no gap at all. (That is, not until adolescence, when their mental skills plunge to the same level as Black children raised by Black parents.)

14. There is some weak evidence of a “grandmother effect.” Although children of Black parents have the same gap, regardless of those parents’ wealth or education, children with educated grandparents seem to have a significantly smaller gap.

GRADE SCHOOL

15. Reducing class sizes for Black children reduces the gap, but not by much. Increasing class sizes for White children has no effect on White children’s mental skills.

16. Increasing teacher skill level for Black children reduces the gap, but not by much. Reducing teacher skill level for White children has no effect on White children’s mental skills.

17. Having only White teachers teach Black children reduces the gap, but not by much. Having only Black teachers teach White children has no effect on White children’s mental skills.

18. Pouring massive funding into school resources for Black children (facilities, libraries, lunches, art, music) reduces the gap, but not by much. Withholding school resources from White children has no effect on White children’s mental skills.

ADOLESCENCE

19. Black children raised by White adoptive parents do not show any gap through grade school. But upon reaching adolescence their mental skills quickly deteriorate to the level of Black children raised by Black parents.

20. Only one study so far has examined John Ogbu’s Black “oppositional culture” hypothesis. (That Black adolescents deliberately fail in response to Black peer-pressure that punishes success as “acting White.”) The study disputes John Ogbu’s hypothesis because, when asked, Black high school students insisted that they study just as hard and just as much as White students and that they skip school no more often than White students.

21. Even if it exists, Black peer pressure that punishes success as “acting White” cannot possibly cause the Black-White test score gap because the gap appears by age 3 at the latest, long before peer pressure is an issue.

Buddhism, God, And Psychology

 (Buddha believed In God)

 

By Chance Kelsey, Chancellorfiles.com  

Chance: Many followers of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and other religions through out the world are convinced that Buddha did not believe in God. Therefore, it’s also believed that many Buddhists who follow the teachings of Buddha are atheist. Buddha did believe in God but the reason many Christians, Muslims, Jewish practitioners, and followers of other religions believe that Buddha did not believe in God is — because Buddha used symbology too describe GOD. Buddhism is very esoteric, and Buddha taught his monks the esoteric side of Buddhism. Buddha taught his lay followers (non-monks) the exoteric side of Buddhism. The exoteric means public and esoteric means hidden or secret.

Buddhism combines both of these two sides into one. When one reads a book on Buddhist teachings, many of the teachings can be hard to understand. The basic teachings are easy to understand, but when one gets to the esoteric teachings in the book it’s difficult to understand — unless you have been taught the esoteric teaching of Buddhism. Also, the majority of Buddhists do not even understand the esoteric side of their religion. Only, a small number comprehend the esoteric teachings of Buddhism. The teachings of Buddhism are so profound.

Buddha taught the Dharma, the word Dharma means doctrine (teachings), and every religion has a doctrine filled with various teachings on a variety of issues. It is a fact that evey religiom has an exoteric and an esoteric side. 

The word Bodhi means enlighten and sattva means being and this is why Buddha was called the bodhisattva. Buddha’s real name at birth was Siddhartha Gautama who lived in India around 2500 years ago. Jesus Christ was born about 500 years after Buddha, and Prophet Muhammad was born in Mecca (Saudi Arabia) in the year 570 A.D. (this makes Islam only about 500 and something years younger than Christianity) after Jesus Christ. Jesus’ last name was Pandira, in Hebrew it was Yeshua Ben Pandira. Ben means son of in Hebrew.  

The name Joshua is the transliteration of the Hebrew name, Yeshua, from which the Greek transliteration of Jesus is derived. Both mean “God saved us." So Jesus’ real name is Joshua Pandira. 

BUDDHA    

The name Buddha means the Awakened one, Buddha is a title and a rank. A bodhi sattva when he becomes purified of all the character defects becomes a BUDDHA. Only, a Bodhisattva can become a Buddha. In some Buddhist scriptures some Bodhi sattvas are called Maha sattvas, Maha means great Sattva means being.         

The Jewel In The Lotus (God And Heart)

Buddha mentioned the Jewel in the Lotus, a jewel is a very precious stone, a lotus is a type of flower often lotuses can be found floating in a pond or lake. When Buddha spoke of the Jewel in the Lotus he was speaking in symbolic terms.

The Jewel symbolizes God and the Lotus symbolizes the heart. God is compared to being precious like a jewel and the heart is often compared to a precious flower. Buddha called God a jewel, and this Jewel lives in the heart.

In Christianity Mount Zion represent the heart and God lives in your inner Mount Zion. This is what is meant by go to your father (God) in secret (heart).    

Mental Defilements (Psychology Of Buddhism)

In Buddhism the mental defilements are the character defects that every human carries. The defects of anger, greed, sexual lust, hate, murder, jealousy, laziness, gluttony, and all the rest of the character flaws that humans possess. The goal is to gradually eliminate these mental defilements from your self, Buddhists also, call the mental defilements aggregates. The mental aggregates are all the character defects that each human carries.

Idols And Infidels

Esoterically in Christianity Idols symbolizes Character defects, and in Islam Infidels symbolizes Character defects.

Buddha And Mara (Ego)

Chance: When Buddha was sitting under the Bodhi tree he defeated Mara and his army. Mara symbolizes the Ego, and the ego of every human is their own inner Satan. Mara wants to continue controlling your life but you must fight against your inner Mara (Ego-Satan) and his army. The Satan of Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and of every religion is the inner ego of every human being. Of course there is a general evil force (entity) that is Satan, but every one has an ego (Satan) inside of them also.    

The origin of the legend of Mara is first noticeable in the Padhana Sutta (See Samyutta Nikaya vs.425-49). Mara has a ten-fold army.

Ten Army of Mara
sensuous pleasures (kama);
dissatisfaction (arati);
hunger and thirst (khuppassa);
craving (tanha);
sloth and torpor (thina middha);
fear (bhiru);
doubt (vicikkicha);
hypocrisy and obstinacy (makkha and thambha);
gain, fame and reverence (labha, siloka and sakkara);
self-exaltation and disparaging others (attukkamsana and paravambhana)

He has three daughters, Tanha, Arati and Raga representing the three out of the ten forces of Mara’s army.
Mara wanted to keep the Buddha from Reaching full enlightenment by sending his three daughters Tanha (craving or desire), Raga (lust), and Arati (aversion or a feeling of intense dislike or hate). But the Buddha prevailed and reached Anuttara Samyak Sambodhi, the Consumation of Incomparable Enlightenment. 
An means "un," uttara means "excelled," samyak means "right," sam means "all-pervading," and bodhi is translated” enlighten." Taken together, the term is translated "unexcelled, right, all-pervading enlightenment."
 
"Unexcelled" means that this way thoroughly penetrates true reality and reaches the ultimate nature of things; nothing surpasses it. Why? Because it is perfect.
"Right" refers to enlightened wisdom. Because it knows things just as they are, it is called "right wisdom." Because dharma-nature is formless, Enlightened wisdom is no-knowing.

"All-pervading" has two meanings:

1. The Enlightened mind knows all things everywhere;
      2. The dharma-body universally fills the dharma-realm. Neither the body nor the mind ever fails to be present everywhere.

Salvation And Liberation

When Buddha spoke of Liberation and annihilation he was talking about the annihilation of the ego (mara the Satan) and Character defects. When this annihilation happens one has obtained liberation. The Hindus call liberation Mosksha and the Christians call liberation Salvation. This liberation leads to Nirvana (heaven). 

The Sufis also speak of annihilation, and this annihilation that the Sufis speak of is the same as Buddhism’s concept of annihilation. The Sufis are the mystic of Islam and they are esotericists.

Gods And Angels

The gods of Buddhism are angels and arch angels; they are just called gods by Buddhists. Sometimes a misunderstanding occurs among people of various religions because of terminology.  

Conclusion
Every religion emanates from the same GOD, and every religion has two sides one exoteric and the other esoteric — but the average religious follower only studies the exoteric side of their particular religion. We should look for the similarities in religion more than the differences.

Richard Wright Black Boy

 

By Chance Kelsey, Chancellorfiles.com

 

Richard Wright (writer and poet)

 Chance: Richard Wright was born on September 4, 1908 and he died November 28, 1960 at the age of 52 years old. Richard Wright was a famous writer, poet, novelist, and essayist Wright was one of the most famous black American writers that ever lived. Richard was born on Rucker’s plantation between located Roxie Mississippi and Natchez Mississippi, and this is why some biographer say he was born in town of Roxie, Mississippi and other biographers say he was born in Natchez, Mississippi. He wrote many essays and novels, his most famous two are books Native son and black boy.
 
Black boy is Richard’s person autobiography of his life as a young boy growing up in the Southern parts of the United States. He lived in the Southern States of Mississippi, Tennessee, and Arkansas but the majority of his young childhood was spent in Mississippi. Richard did not enjoy living in the racist South because of the racial tensions that whites created made life miserable for blacks.
 
 

RICHARD AND THE WHITEMAN (VIOLENCE)

 

Richard in an essay he wrote called “The Ethic Of Jim Crow,” remembers the time he accepted a ride from a Richard Wright“friendly” white man. When the white man offered him a drink of whiskey Wright politely said, “oh no.” The man punched him hard in the face and, said nigger ain’t you learned to say “sir” to a white man? The pain from the blow would pass, but the pain from N word would stay with him forever. Wright also said, that blacks were partly responsible for allowing whites to treat them the way they did. He felt that whites were guilty of racism and mistreating black people but at the same–time blacks let it continue and happen because blacks were complacent.
 
 
In 1946 at the age of 38 years old Richard moved to Paris, France and lived there until his death on November 28, 1960. He was getting ready to move to London, England when he died he had already sent his wife and two daughters to live in London, but immigration paper work held him back. He was waiting for everything to clear up so he could get his immigration visa paper approved and this is why he remained in Paris, France.
 

RICHARD AND BLACK CULTURE

 
He believed that blacks suffered from cultural barrenness. In his book black boy Richard Wright wrote: I used to mull over the strange absence of real kindness in Negroes, how unstable was our tenderness, how lacking in genuine passion we were, how void of great hope, how timid our joy, how bare our traditions, how hollow our memories, how lacking we were in those intangible sentiments that bind man to man, and how shallow was even our despair." (Richard Wright’s book black boy)
 
Richard Wright wrote: I saw that what had been taken for our emotional strength was our negative confusions, our flights, our fears, our frenzy under pressure." (Richard Wright’s book black boy)
 
Many other black authors during Wright’s time and after wrote about how the black community was strong culturally, loving, kind, compassionate, united etc but Wright revealed the unpleasant side of the of black America. And he revealed the unpleasant side in his writings in the 1940s and this was a time period when a black person could be murder by a white person and the white person could easily remain or if convicted receive a lesser sentence.
 
A period when whites would beat, humiliate, throw racial insults publicly, rape black women, and do all kinds of evil things to blacks and get away with it.
 
 

APPRECIATION

 
Chance: Richard Wright deserves to be congratulated for speaking the truth about the unpleasant cultural and moral degradation that blacks allowed to run rampant among them–selves during his time period. He deserves our highest praises for also – telling the truth about how white racism and white supremacy made life miserable for blacks.
 
He criticized both whites and blacks for their collective character defects he did not betray blacks so he could get some benefits out of whites, and at the same–time he did not blame whites for all of the character flaws of Black America.
 
Wright understood that when people live in a country they influence each other in good and bad ways culturally. He traveled to Africa, South America, and Europe also Richard Wright, is the one who made the expression BLACK POWER popular. When he started saying black power the expression spread through-out America and the world.
 
In later generations many blacks read that expression in some books written by other writers who mentioned Wright’s black power expression. And some blacks heard other blacks saying black power so they started saying it publicly. Yes, Richard Wright may have lived his last days in Paris, France but he left a powerful impression on his fellow blacks Americans and Americans of every ethnic group.
 
His influence on readers even living around the world in other countries has been well documented. He was courageous and said what needed to be said to both white and black America and for those truths that you spoke regarding the relationship between black and white Americans I say that you Mr. Richard Wright.

The Ancient Egyptian Religion

By Chance, Chancellorfiles

Chance: The country of Egypt has a fascinating ancient history, out of all the ancient histories from around the world Egyptian history is the ancient history that most archeologist, historians, esoteric religious writers, etc have been most fascinated with. I am talking about the Egypt of 2000 and 3000 years ago when black people ruled the country of Egypt. Today Egypt is predominatly Arab and the major religion is Islam although there are some Arab Egyptians who are coptic christians the majority of the people of Egypt are Muslims.      

Ancient Egyptians had an esoteric side to their religion also, and this esoteric side of the ancient Egyptian religious mysteries was taught only to a select few esoteric students. In public daily life the people of Egypt were taught the basic teachings of their religion. But those Egyptians who had joined the religious mystery schools were taught the esoteric (secret and hidden) meanings and interpretations of the Egyptian religion. What is an esoteric religious school? It is a school were the secret and hidden side of a religion is taught. These esoteric schools were also called mystery schools in ancient times. Because what these esoteric religious mystery schools taught was a mystery to the people of general public who had not been students at an esoteric religious school.

Set And Osiris

In the ancient Egyptian religious system SET is said to be Satan and OSIRIS is said to be GOD. Some people spell Osiris differently they spell it Osirus but the two names represent the samething. Osiris is greek the ancient Eygptians called God Ausar and Ausar is the original Egyptian name of Osiris. Sometimes Set’s name is spelled sat by some people. Also some writers and authors spell set with a TH so is ends up spelled Seth. So set, seth, and sat are the same entity. Often ancient Egyptian paintings show Set and Osiris sitting at a table together – Set sitting on one end and Osirus sitting on the other side of the table. This sitting in front of each other symbolizes the battle between light and darkness Set and Osiris fighting and dueling to see who will finally get control of the world. Set being evil and Osiris being good.

It is said that Set had children, the Egyptians called these children the Red Demons of Set. The red demons of set symbolizes the character defects that we humans have defects like anger, sexual lust, hate, jealous, greed, and any character flaw that  a person has. Now Set and Osiris lived in the country of Egypt, but Egypt has an esoteric interpretation also, and that is the country of Egypt symbolizes the physical body. So Osiris and Set live inside of your physical body.
Osiris is the God that lives in your heart and Set is the ego that lives in you also. Osiris (God) is in your heart and Set (negative ego) lives out side of your heart and is always trying to overthrow Osiris. The heart is Osiris’s Kingdom and Set is trying to overthrow that kingdom and establish his own evil kingdom. Set has his red demons and when you eliminate a character defect (red demon) you create a virtue in its place. These virtues then become a servant of osiris. You must help your inner Osiris create more servants (virtues). Your physical body is the temple of the living God, and the living God lives in your heart.      
Ancient Egyptian Religions Characters

Osiris (sometimes spelled Osirus) – God

Set – 1. Satan every religion teaches that there is an entity called Satan. 2. Set also is your inner negative ego.

Red demons – Character defects

Egypt – Physical body 

All religions have two sides to them, and all religions are similar especially when it comes to the esoteric side. Comparative religion is a great subject because comparative religion searches for the similarities and not just the differences between the various religions.
