On the 26th of June in the year of the Metal Tiger, with the moon in the constellation Capricorn on the accepted calendar in use the Sun kissed the horizon, and ushered in the 1st full moon following the Summer Solstice of 2010. These new born thoughts are delivered to you on the 27th.  Why is Gyroscope7, “We Share the Same Journey” Blog being introduced at this time? The simple answer, albeit cryptic or abstract, today is the TIME, because tomorrow is the next day.  So, by default it becomes the key to procrastination. Therefore, ‘tomorrow’ is an oxymoron or more politely stated - a paradox.  That elusive day we perpetually look forward to as it dances across the horizon of infinity will forever be in the future.  And, from the severed artery in the Gulf of Mexico that connects the oceans to the rhythm of the earth’s pulse we polarize our thinking to the loss of income rather than the slow asphyxiation of ecosystems.  Why, because it is difficult for us to maintain a heading in the best interest of all of us – mineral – plant – animal - hue-man, and other.
 
Yes, my beloved and often estranged members of the hue-man clan - who remain filled with questions to recognize our DNA siblings in the family of earthlings. The challenge is profound to fathom that we are one?  In light of the vile and unspeakable things we inflict upon each other - often orchestrated by some of the most ingenuous sociopaths that have ever walked the face of this earth. More importantly, the very planet that sustains us, we disrespect born from the illusory disconnect fueled by those who catalogue our core “beliefs” to question our oneness.  We are taught from a codex of fragmented information that fuels ignorance and greed which gives birth to fear that vacuums the life-force we share. In our hearts, we are toddlers and children prone to believe thoughts that echo in our minds as reflections of ideas and beliefs incompatible with what we intuitively know.  We have a natural thirst for Ma’at, yet, the programming is strong and the themes are repetitive, hence our identity becomes so eroded that we are CHALLENGED to recognize self in each other.
 
As a result, reminders are necessary to impress upon us that ‘We Share the Same Journey’.  Again, you may ponder why? That which we witness daily as ‘NEWS’ reflects a one dimensional world which restricts us to four directions, as it focuses on agreed upon events hailing from designated areas as North, East, West, and South.  Today, you are reminded that your internal ‘gyroscope’ will be activated with music in this life’s journey. Welcome to the trail – the Path – the Tao, a vibration on Anansi’s web as we navigate the journey we all share – LIFE!
 

Staying Focused - Maintain Heading

We Share The Same Journey
Your internal gyroscope allows you to maintain alignment with the “Spirit” within. There are many names for this “Divine Force” that enables you to navigate any domain, for that matter - any dimension. It is OK to refer to it as a voice that inherently connects you to all, everyone and everything.  

This planet dances on the dynamic vortex which has us facing peril everyday.  That is why ~ “LOVE makes the world go round.” If you think this is cliché?  Have you ever seen prejudices and ignorance go out the window when there is a vehicle accident, a traumatic incident or a so called natural disaster?  Have you ever been in the emergency room (ER) and watched the ER team endless questions of Why, and philosophical beliefs instantaneously shift into oblivion as soon as a patient arrives? Have you ever seen the face of despair on a homeless person just squeak by on a heart of dignity, a senior citizen, a hungry child, a neglected animal heart song in their eyes?  Sure you have. And, what does this do to you?  It evokes the resonance of empathy, and activates the ‘mirror neurons’ in your brain. At that very moment, if you are unable to make a difference, you experience that fleeting moment - a sensation you lack adjectives to describe – that is the GOD in you. That is the fabric being woven into the ‘patch-work quilt’ of your unlabeled humanity which transcends, gender, age, cultural, religious, and ethnic shards of our collective shattered identity – as hue-mans.

In the event you are slightly perplexed – just a little bemused to fathom where we are going, catch your breath, because WE are about to heal the world. The very air you breathe is directly related to ocean currents, mountains, the forest and the trees; all the foliage that surrounds us.  From an ecological point of view – your habitat also referred to as your environment. 

In simple terms, where we live or struggle to live, due to the ignorance that stifles the fluidity of living - into just getting by, ‘one-day-at-a-time’.   For example, that man made geyser of crude gushing from the gulf in the ocean – we can curtail its devastation.  Sadly, we could have stopped it a lot earlier. Yes – stopped it!  As a matter of fact, lets just STOP it, and abstain from the thoughts of when or have “they” contained it yet?  Just think it, and affirm it, and ask the earth to forgive the ignorance, and misguided corporate entities' duplicity in aiding & abetting myopic political agendas. 

Have you ever swum in the amniotic fluid of the earth – off the shores of beautiful beaches where you could see the coral, the fishes, and a few things you had no words for? It is as hypnotic as watching babies sleep, as beautiful as any woman, as handsome as any man, as grand as any yacht. It is creation and evolution unfolding right before your eyes, with a simultaneous exquisite massage by the currents rhythmically spiraling around your person.  What can “I” (my person) tell you, other than remind you of things you have tucked away into your genetic memories. “I” am that echo of unspoken thoughts that rekindle memories of the first time you laughed until you cried tears of joy, a sensation that bathed your brain in endorphins of pleasure so overwhelming that your heart summoned a signal to make such memories real - - in spite of the journey ahead.

FOUL FAUCETS IN FLINT: Don't Touch That Tap

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 01/29/16

Foul Faucets: Don't Touch That Tap


Foul Faucets In Flint, what’s up with that? Don’t touch that tap! In the prelude to annihilate a people - a strategic military protocol must be implemented, on a grand scale – inconceivable to fathom by the masses.

 

In short, the insidious illusion of a ride on a carousel ensues which is in place to activate ‘Cognitive Genocide’ on a global scale. A declaration to announce to the world that ‘these people don’t matter.’ Technology has replaced their worth, and “they” have become a burden to the planet. I submit to you, that this is much bigger than a governor’s attempts to hide behind language to stabilize a budget in a state.  This is another government sanctioned social experiment that was interrupted by citizens, who became activists to curtail the slow demise of their families.

 

For the record, in April 2014 decisions were made to ‘flip the switch’ to the Flint River water, rather than continue the flow of water from Lake Huron. Rising documentation in Emails exchanged by Michigan officials confirmed that they were trucking clean water to their employees as early as January 2015, while the populace was being poisoned. For the sake of brevity & cogency, and to steer clear of subjecting the readers to a lengthy narrative peppered with scientific jargon familiar to engineers, chemist and physicians, I will insert isolated terms to illustrate the magnitude of these acts of heinous disregard for humanity - particularly to children and the elderly. 

 

In general, lead in water and trihalomethanes (a disinfectant known to be carcinogenic & used to treat ‘jacked-up’ microbial laden drinking water) produces a toxic cocktail that can mimic aggressive chemotherapy, with visible side effects in humans, such as, rashes, stunted growth, diarrhea, abdominal pains, diminished/loss of vision & hair, kidney & liver problems, and a variety of neurological compromises – more noticeable in babies and developing children. Sadly, it is even more alarming, as we acknowledge that cumulative central nervous system damage presents as a lifetime phenomena. While basic grooming and hygiene practices - become a triple labor, for younger children and senior citizens. Varying from such routines fosters a spectrum of stresses to degrade the immune system, and erode one’s overall health and longevity.

In simple terms, the residents will look like victims of biological warfare with devastating effects. All of which culminates into a cognitive genocide, as it replaces the memories of people filled with an effervescent quest to live into a tolerant citizenship, who will simply be washed away from the eyes of the media by another act of inhumanity.

Far to soon, narratives like this one, will be relegated to “conspiracy hype” as it is supplanted in importance during the systematic decimation of melanin dominant humans; of course, with the collateral damage of a few struggling (vanilla brothers & sisters (working class – “insignificant” Caucasian families) sprinkled in for distractive purposes.

 

In the ray of the sentinel into which my person is born, look for the next entry, as it will include what can be done at a level that impacts the victims.  In addition, it will shed some light on the cloak of ‘Cognitive Genocide’ to remove the memories and true identity of a people from the annals of earth’s historic archives. By the way, if you are wondering what can you do about it now? Take action – by simply doing something, if it only means adding another voice to the choir - to amp up the volume with lyrics thematically demanding  - COMPENSATION & JUSTICE!

 

The Mfundi – AKA The Sentinel

ANOTHER MORNING OF MOURNING

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 06/23/15

 

Welcome to the journey of oxymoronic joy on the pendulum of ‘pain & pleasure’. That’s how Beautiful Black is; touched by the iridescent crystalline matrix of Godly arranged molecules of melanin, when kissed by the Sun. Woven together into micro-strands of carbon that make hue-man life possible, as a temporary vessel to navigate this world. Why are these impeccable works of Art that announce our Identity, to be as creative as Crayola’s - in the hands of any child, type-casted - as “trash to be discarded?”  

It's a damn shame, that the ‘trail of tears’ meeting at your cheeks - are secondary to being awakened by the cool moisture of a soaked pillow, as a signature - to a restless sleep - to greet another day - in a Racist world.

 

If you study the “Isis Papers” by Dr. Frances Cress-Welsing, “Another Morning Of Mourning” will be readily over-stood or understood, depending upon your IQ of Consciousness. 

Of course, greater clarity may be gained, if you are familiar with Dr. Neely Fuller Jr., (Dr. Cress-Welsing’s Teacher). His axiom states, “If you don’t understand the system of white supremacy/racism everything else you understand will only serve to confuse you.”

 

Case in point: Nine lives were taken in Charleston South Carolina, as a symbolic reminder that you have NO MORE lives to give to this world. Nine denotes the end of the cycle of counting, before something new is born to another plane of consciousness. So, without skipping a beat, Black folk were misdirected, to discuss removing the Battle Flag of The Confederacy to place it in a museum. And, The President’s appropriate use and contextual reference of the “N-word” captured us like fish in a net. With malice & premeditation, our attention was channeled away from the place to pursue links that orchestrated the presence of the 21 year old “trigger-man”, who assassinated South Carolina Senate Member, Pastor Clementa Carlos Pinckney, and the other victims of murder; Susie Jackson, Daniel Simmons Sr., Ethel Lance, DePayne Doctor, Myra Thompson,  Cynthia Hurd, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, and Tywanza Sanders.

 

Our thinking was reengineered, to pause and reflect on the dismissal of Black Lives by the Circuit Judge who injected and superimposed (via a tactical technique in Psychology - called “PRIMING”) a “Plea for sympathy & Grief”, on behalf of the admitted murderer of Nine Blacks, who embraced this warped son of Satan into their ‘Bible-Study’ by the novelty of a carefully placed “Trojan Horse”, while Black folk were under the intoxicating trance of ‘Scripture’ - incubating thoughts, that the Devil has horns, rather than the sandy dirty hair of a ‘white-boy’ packing a gun.


Unknowingly, this became a prelude to their premature demise, from the trauma of a volley of 45 caliber bullets impacting each of them multiple times. After this devil in disguise inserted 5 to 7 new clips in the presence of one child who played possum (pretended to be “dead”). This evil uttered a few more nasty words then fled.

 

Readers remain mindful, that the racially motivated shooting of eight rounds fired toward the back of Walter Scott - services were just held on April 11 of 2015, following his homicide by a legal firearm in the hands of a North Charleston barbarian with a badge.

Yes, I state, and remind you again, “Another Morning Of Mourning”, we are charged to endure.

Obviously, there are too many pre-emptied Souls to name during this narrative flow. However the two “I” am about to mention are catalysts to recalibrate our thinking and awareness of the world we struggle to fathom, while white-folk kill us, without blinking.

When “I” evoke their names. “I” humbly ask that you Google their pictures and imagery to rekindle and upgrade your consciousness of the ‘Evil & Pathology’ that we face each and every day -– 24-7; for those people, who find it SO DIFFICULT to discuss or read - WHAT BLACK FOLK FACE 24 HOURS daily, throughout the year! Write into your search engines, the next time you are online; take 10 minutes to browse and read?  (Pictures/Images of Emmett Till and follow it 5 minutes later, with (Pictures/Images of Kendrick Johnson {of Valdosta Georgia}). Make a mental note, that these heinous killings of our youth, occurred greater than 55 years apart (28 August 1955 – 11 January 2013), yet that continuum of “death” in a variety of forms is unrelenting.

 

Why am “I” asking you to take a look for yourselves?

The main reason is, “I” fully recognize that some of you find Dr. Welsing’s and Dr. Neely Fuller’s position too much to fathom. And, finally, those pictures are irrefutable proof of the pathology and evil our people revisit in personal conversations, because the main media will shine the light elsewhere.  For example, “He went there” . . . “The “N-word���, and is the flag coming down in Charleston, as if that WILL NULLIFY SYSTEMATIC INSTITUTIONAL RACISM . . .

 

. . . While a Judge misdirected  (In psychology this technique is known as PRIMING.) the Family Members and public, to how many survivors embraced that classic Christian axiom, “We Forgive You” (to diffuse the focus on sympathy for the family to the Caucasian murderer) while he introduced an ‘Arraignment Date’ for mid-October of 2015, with the primary objective of diluting the public outcry for “Justice”, and EXTRA time to concoct a viable series of distracting stories or nuances to quell the CRY or even a Prayer for Justice.

 

Because TERRORISM is ONLY TERRORISM, when Caucasian lives are lost or they are bombed out of their homes, and their property is destroyed with no food or water to drink.

 

So, until then, The Corporation (USA) will continue to ration resources to “non-White” people throughout the globe, as this is consistent with the meaning of the fused terms from Latin: Corpus – the body and Ratio, meaning to ration.

 

Now, let us “pray while they take our families, men, women and children away - - - day by day . . .”

Simon Says

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 03/19/15

~ For Red, Brown & Black folk only ~                   Too many to name


When I was a little kid, we played a game that could get you ousted, if you failed to do exactly what “Simon Says.” Yep, really technical stuff, “Simon says,” rather than Simon said! Today, we are playing that same game again, which is inherently problematic. Mostly, because adults of color, particularly melanin dominant males can ill afford to play games, in a world that decimates us as a stress reliever.

 

Hands Up, hands down, wrong side of town, lounging around, laying down, dragged & scuffed across the ground; it doesn't matter, you are likely to be put down - - that is, choked, tased, maimed or shot, even after you are lying face down.  Leaving that most precious fluid Jackson Pollock rendered as a signature trail ~ on the improvised canvases of sidewalks, streets and grass ~ that you were there; knowing that the next pair of hands on your person is more likely distal extensions of the Coroner, rather than an EMT or an ER Doctor.  

 

Why . . .?  You failed to hear, comply or respond exactly to what “Simon says”  . . . because by the time you interpret what Simon said, puts the command in the past tense, which means, your response was other than immediate, and, invariably - this translates into lack of compliance, which somehow equals belligerence. This means, you are resisting arrest or a threat to Simon.  

 

Now you are classified as a “COMBATANT,” and that means WAR! The anthropological cultural default protocol kicks in, and is automatically uploaded into RAM or the micro-cortex of a barbarian with a badge.  Darker skin trumps human acknowledgement, and reduces you to an inhuman creature or animal with characteristics like the “Hulk or Thing,” all because, society sanctions the marginalization & dehumanization of males of color.

 

Simon, Hebrew in origin – meaning to hear or to be heard, even if you have a hearing impairment or in a heightened state of arousal, because you view “authorities” in uniform proximal to your person, friends or families, as potential threats, or dangerous, rather than someone to assist or give aid.

 

It's a DAMN SHAME, that greater than 85% of all authorities in uniform, ideally are there to “protect & serve,” while that 15% who managed to receive a badge, and a gun - are HIGHLY questionable Officers of the law. And, those are the ones, I tell all Red, Brown & Black folk to AVOID & OBSERVE!  

 

Anyway, whose “Laws” are they enforcing in the first place? And, much like child’s play, whether you have high anxiety in the presence of police, they – police NEED to be immersed in training, built upon scenarios designed to instill second nature into their responsivity to males of color. The specific behavior sets to parallel their paranoid reactivity and or proclivity to point their firearms - like a spontaneous reaction to touching a hot burner on a stove.

 

Sure, it’s like ‘Child’s Play’, “My baad – I thought that cell phone was a gun.” Institutional Racism has given these enforcers, ‘License To Kill’ with impunity! A racist system has created a zeitgeist that allows our male children and young adolescents - to be viewed as vermin, alongside the road of poorly lite Texas highways.  Racist Amerika sired Simon from the loins of ‘Jim Crow – Uncle Sam’ who signed off on mobs placing strange over ripened fruit on trees in the South, which evoked pathological grins & smiles on the faces of dried out salty thin wafers of toasted flour denizens – aka – crackers!  . . . Oops, my baad ~

 

“Cicero dicit fac hoc” (Cicero says do this.) This demonic chant has become an expression to excuse the public maiming, and killing of our males, right before our eyes with the generic response of: ‘the subject failed to comply to a direct police command’. Now, that we are clear about what happens to us, when we give thought or pause to what “SIMON SAYS.”

 

I submit to you, that we should replace Simon Says, with “Mother (Captain, Father) May I?” Let’s choose a much better game for today’s world. This will allow us to have a call & response feedback loop, to document accountability & responsibility.  “May I? Yes you may – or No you may not.”  The lesson is, one has to embrace simplicity when dealing with a Racist – one-track mind. So, let the records state, RACISM is the child of ignorance, and for Simon, that’s too much POWER - to place in the hands of one - who deems self as Judge & Jury. Yes, RACISM is the child of IGNORANCE! What fool of mental myopia is only able to see - the illusory moment of power over Blackness, with hi-tech mobile phone cameras in a world married to technology? Can I get a witness? “Can we all just get along?”  So, if this is Martin’s dream – I am certain his Spirit recognizes it  ~ as a Nightmare!


Because a brotha' does reside @ 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, North West in Washington, DC, while Uncle Sam’s cloned child Simon – - - - - - - - - - -

Chapter Zero: Going In Circles

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 11/25/14

Conscious melanin dominant hue-mans found no surprise,

We recognize the Façade of Justice, as just another disguise

Of basic make-up, to cover more games & lies

Spending millions of our Tax dollars, killing us like flies.

 

This is my prelude to the return of Judicial Quaaludes,

A sedative from the 70’s, with a little alcohol could reduce you to a mindless ZOMBIE!  Clearly, we have become the “Return of The Living Dead”, nodding in & out of that Psychopathic euphemistic disconnected commentary on why there was NO INDICTMENT, as a spark of potential “Justice” in Amerika!

AT least, that would have been a signal to respect the lives of our children; to the contrary, they spend our “MONEY” to enslave & contain us.

Please, “PAY” close attention, because “ATTENTION” is free, as they attempt to sidetrack us with a venomous diatribe about Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable, an Obstetrician (OB/Gyn) for eight years, who was licensed to examine vaginas (with censored discretion on national TV). The alleged and or real ‘sexual escapades’ of Dr. Bill Cosby simultaneously drops from the sky like an Ebony old chard meteor to refocus our attention on the impact of Powerful Black MEN – Moors in Amerikan “society”, as the real threat to women. Why have they elected to vilify him now – in his old age? Why now? The man who America saw delivering babies, totally wiped out from bringing children into the world and the ‘Father” who taught America how to raise her children - from those who struggled, to those who were affluent.

Check out the symbolism, they KILL our offspring, violate and MALIGN our women, while they criminalize our children, as default culprits for becoming a victim to INSTITUTIONAL RACISM! This is the zenith, the apex of PURE PATHOLOGY! Kill the child and eulogize him or her as the engineer of a system sanctioned murder with malice & paranoia.

Let us remain mindful, that ‘folk’ are angry with me for the candor and passion in my comments, as they tell you these words are inflammatory.  It has always been my understanding (over-standing), that inflammation is a natural response to an infection or the acute reaction to something that is toxic or disease bearing. I submit to you, that RACISM is a virulent vector, inherently prone to morbidity and/or death! So, inflammation is a natural corollary to any virus. Therefore, I only ask that you bear with me, as “I” point out the omnipresent grand hemorrhage that you would have us view as a “paper-cut!”    Let us not forget, the gift wrapped package of sympathy & deception to amplify the ‘knock-out’ punch of Ray Rice (on his wife). Adrian Peterson’s TOTALLY inappropriate behavior from a swell of emotional reactivity was juxtaposed on the Ebola plague in West Afrika, as particularly news worthy. Remember, how much does it cost, to PAY attention! How much?  Nothing!

That is why you are systematically bombarded with Judicial Quaaludes to keep you in a trance, totally oblivious to the fact that you find sanctuary in being a Zombie or a swift ostrich ready to bury your head in the sand, when faced with a TRUTH too painful to see.  Do you really believe that Amerika gives a damn about children of color? Look at the Borders! How can the original inhabitants of this country be illegal “aliens?” Visit the major city morgues, and peek inside of the body bags? The media parades before your eyes, the illusion and sound-bytes of concern about our women and children. Seriously, do you think the ‘good-old-boys’ give a _____ about a Black man knocking out his girlfriend in an elevator or Adrian injuring his child with a “switch,” while Racism makes daily rounds of removing people of color from the planet? Seriously . . . ?

Welcome back, to Chapter Zero! Please, be calm, as they kill our children and rape our women behind a badge in Oklahoma  (Daniel Holtzclaw on 16 counts of rape & sexual abuse) & throughout the world. Why are these stories muted in the news?

Yes sir, Mr. Policeman, you have license to Kill, with the functional cortex capacity of less than the weight of the 40 calibers you pepper our children with on any given day. And, some of you have the audacity to call me militant or an agitator for stringing words together to shine light on your PATHOLOGY! FYI, clearly, this ONLY applies to the SICK ones RACISM insulates beneath its colossal wings of vampirism.

More importantly, if these words percolate anger within you, look in the mirror, and focus on the reflection of your eyes and ask yourself, should you be legally allowed to carry a firearm/gun, with that mentality or lack of emotional control? Finally, if you fail to immediately check yourself, imagine what you would do while experiencing a surge of adrenaline, with your crew - the other ‘boys in blue’ nearby?

If these were your children, that sterile intellectual pseudo-scientific crap would never be uttered from your lips, penned by your pens, keyboarded on your computers or uploaded on social networks, tweeted or texted  -- to a living soul.

By the way, CHAPTER ZERO means, “Here we go – again”, the same old crap. We have seen this before, the “Façade of Justice.” 

I EVOKE my Ancestors of Nibiru & Tiamat to give you an idea of who &/or what you are dealing with . . .

PERSPECTIVES: A Sign of the Times

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 08/19/14

As a Sentinel who wears the title Mfundi & Daktari, I am getting tired of commenting about the pockets of pathology embedded beneath the rubric of Institutional Racism and global hegemony.  And, of course, by now, you have noticed, that it has been quite a while since my last entry. Nonetheless, I am compelled to share my thoughts on the signature of energy that enshrouds this planet, Tiamat, commonly referred to as Earth. Simply because, that's the name “White-folk” (pseudo-scientists) assigned to the 3rd planet from the Sun, we repeat it. 

The list is too long and updates are attached weekly via social media and major international networks. The carnage and vile acts that impact our children beneath exploited terms like, excessive force, militarization of Police precincts and their Officers, ‘collateral damage – radical extremists – human trafficking – border crossings – neglect due to alcohol-substance abuse, even – pedophilia, which falls under the ambiguous title of a mental health condition.  Sick is sick, be it euphemistically classified, as a mental disorder or sociological phenomenon. RACISM is the original father of a colony of leeches and vampires who have sought the colonization of people throughout the world, since their  (you know who) migration from the Caucus Mountains. 

As a result, I am charged with revisiting topics I have in the past, like a phantom that creeps from the abyss bowels of Darwin’s thesis of entitlement for the original Flintstones.  The decimation of melanin dominant male children by paranoid Caucasian males, with a license to kill - is pure madness. Even (007) Double 0 Seven had to answer to someone, while ‘Black folk’ are simply told to let the system run its course, after each incident in this vicious cycle of decimation. 

This is the last quarter, and two minutes are left in the game. Therefore, I suggest that the 13th member of the team, come down to the field, and ‘lets handle this’, because it is obvious, that the Referees are calling fouls and throwing flags in the game of LIFE, which makes it virtually impossible for Black men to be treated fairly. Even after a life ending injury, the media maligns him and suggests without accountability, free of impunity that in his demise, he is typecast as the culprit of his untimely (dispiriting/”death”).  In the aftermath of such sound-bytes & disconnected videos, we dialogue & speculate about its plausibility, while awaiting the possibility of an arrest & indictment for Second degree murder, or manslaughter with malicious intent in the wake of any city USA, for a ‘trial by his peers’ . . . May I suggest, that you read, “The Façade of Justice” again? 

In today’s world of collapsing borders and the ambiguity surrounding ethnicities, it remains Krystal Klear, Aboriginals, Native peoples of color, throughout the world, particularly, Black men are used for stress relief and Target Practice

So, please, remember to delete the lullabies from your playlist! For all of those folk who thought melanin in the White House was a signal for a party & parity. May I suggest that you check that straightaway? Michael Jackson was “minted” and christened the King of Pop, and he was jerked around more than taffy and folk obsessed with Bungee Jumping, prior to his ‘crossing over’ under QUESTIONABLE circumstances. 

For a Black man in Amerika, Justice is as likely as a 5-year-old kid catching a Marlin and a Great White on the same line. I bet you $100 USD against a donut, if your President went jogging in blue sweats with a hoody and five escorts, at night, on foot in Any City USA, with Limos a hundred meters away, the local police would stop them, if they had NO jet Black GMC SUV escorts 500 meters ahead. The point is - no community cop, would take the time to recognize. The assumption would be, at the most, after inquiry, there is a possible resemblance. May I remind you, Justice is a Façade for Black folk to talk about and ‘wonder when’, while it serves as a remote concept and a catalyst for paranoid “White” males - TO KILL OUR CHILDREN!

Oh, by the way, remember to delete those lullabies from your I-Pod or wherever you keep your preferred playlists? 

It is noteworthy, to mention that, hours before I sat at my computer console, I was reflecting on my swim with a Pod of Orcas (imaginary, albeit recurring thoughts that surface from regular dreams). The senior Orca, Alpha female, (unable to determine which) telepathically relayed a message to me.  It just eased into my thoughts – “out to sea we go, sharks abound - return to your habitat.”  (Wow, I never knew echolocation, had a telepathic pulse for hue-mans.) Simultaneously, this huge satin black creature, with an impeccably white ventral belly flanked by jet-black borders reminiscent of an hourglass, expelled a copious stream of fluid. I am certain it had to be a spray of urine, as it squirted out like a thin spray of slim. It appeared to be bioluminescent or iridescent, as it seemingly added an extra sheen to my wet suit.  Now, why in the world would this so called “KILLER WHALE’ piss on me? After about two hours plus of allowing me to swim within the pod, nearly 8 meters proximal to the largest Orca that flanked me at the 9 o’clock position, with 2 calves about 5 meters away. With graceful precision it swam closer and forced me to submerge, as it pissed upon me -- good-bye.

Now, the ‘Perspective’ unfolds, sorties, rockets and drone strikes compounded by loss of life at sea, downed commercial aircraft, random group homicides in schools, cinemas, military constellations, bizarre weather patterns, birds falling from the sky, Bees are disappearing, thousands of fish being washed to shore, sink holes, floods and mud slides akin to biblical plagues; could this be the “pole shift?”  Perhaps, mainstream Scientists are playing with their high-tech destructive toys or the universe is making an announcement that the demise of the authors of ‘agribusiness” and chaos is imminent. 

Their carnage & destructive habits hails their own demise, as they perpetually fight among themselves, while shooting our young men for sport.  Perhaps, it crossed your mind? Why has it become necessary to punctuate with redundancy, the pathology of Institutional RACISM?  Their time is up!  

Just beneath this entry, I amplified this same theme 13 months ago, the mentality fostered by people in DEEP DENIAL about the war being waged on Afrikan-Amerikan males, and more specifically, melanin dominant hue-mans throughout the world. While the media ‘trains its lens & sound-bytes’ on Ferguson Missouri, EBOLA weaves through Afrika like a colossal Anaconda, shedding viral material for another experiment in the Motherland.  

In the meantime, stateside, one of my favorite cities from childhood, the home of Motown, The Twenty Grand and Cadillac Motors dances at the borders of the poverty line for clean drinking water and decent housing, as we receive weekly reminders, that our Latino brothers & Sisters are jammed up trying to cross borders on Land, that was theirs, before the “White-man” came. Ask yourself, where is the intelligence among us? These people neutralize life on every front, and refer to women and children as collateral damage. They even have a published history of burning their own women when their tunnel vision, failed to control them. 

Hence, these recurring dreams; the wisest creatures in the vast oceans, which watch over us with our myopic vision and shallow insights, will never be our pets. Ironically, they protect us, as guests, when they feel our spirit in their habitat.  What say you – about your role?  What will you do? Clearly, to passively wait for misguided greedy old men to conceptualize what is compassion or empathy, is a one-way ticket to Hell.

Just as Black athletes and Entertainers have a purpose in the Universe that far exceeds “White folks” moments of joy, as they exploit their talents & skills. We have to reclaim our destiny, and navigate our journey in life, rather than wait for people incapable of granting permission. 

From Tellus in Latin, we get Tellurian, which means earth dweller. Why the digression? We were simply members of the hue-man race, prior to the return of the isolated ostracized occupants who came out of the caves in the Caucus Mountains, rediscovery of seasons, streams and the warmth of Sunlight. 

Look what isolation and ignorance did to their people skills. Racism was born from diseased minds, and developed into a metastatic cancer, which fueled a stream of genocidal behaviors to decimate men of color via incessant wars, engineered by ignorant paranoid Caucasian males. Almost all of who continue to terrorize melanin dominant people. They push their perspectives about the different “Races” that populate this speck of dust, beneath the rubric of religion or the social construct – they call Race. They replaced the terms that meant dwellers of the land.  

As a result, this barbaric insanity, paranoia and greed, gave birth to what Neely Fuller & Dr. Francis Cress-Welsing have justifiably termed, “The System of White Supremacy”. As a Sentinel, assigned to this realm, may I share with you, that historians will record by the 3rd decade of the 21st century, how such ignorance, delayed open and welcome access to other “planets” and your very short life expectancy.   

All of us suffer, mostly because of the incalculable waste of human life and resources, due to wars, religion, and unspoken embedded fears of “White-males” genetic annihilation. All of which is built upon the premise, that this planet lacks the assets to sustain us.  Now back to the Orca urinating on my wet suit. It was a temporary layer & field of protection to deter sharks, until I was either on board or back to shore.  Mind you, these are the so-called “Killer Whales” - Sea-World exploits, as well trained animals to entertain us, in ‘Goldfish bowls’. A charade perpetuated by myopic greedy Caucasian men, who claim to be worthy businessmen, who made their decisions after well thought out input and guidelines from the most knowledgeable marine biologists. The point is, every path made by these folk, since their trek from the Caucus Mountains, has either exploited or corrupted natural habitats or escorted a variety of species onto a list doomed for extinction. 

In simple terms, I am emphatically suggesting, that any life form or species Caucasian men view as unable to control or exploit, becomes classified, as expendable. So, if you think, they will ever be sincere in protecting the interests of people of color – Black men in particular. I strongly suggest, that you seek to bond with Rod Serling – because, you are existing in The Twilight Zone . . . 

You have just received another 'Reality Check', in a circular narrative, as “A Sign Of The Times” . . .

For Trayvon Martin & The Unspoken Adolescents of Color

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 07/17/13

Thespians In The Façade of Justice

First of all, you will need at least 10 to 15 minutes to read this.  That is, if you intend to join me on a journey to examine the Actors & Magicians outside of Hollywood? Although, they are an unpopular class of "Thespians," who put on their own 'makeup', there is something "mind altering" - about Live-Theatre, 'Box-Office'  cinema rarely accomplishes.  It is my hope, that the forthcoming paragraphs  will   help you to gain - a better understanding of a topic, that many Americans pretend really isn't a PROBLEM.

It’s nothing new, mostly because, “Justice” is usually what money can buy; who you know or how astute attorney’s are at putting their spin on Juror’s perceptions -- of the actual facts. I am a Behavioral Neuroscientist, with a Masters in Clinical Psychology. I received a Doctoral degree in (Neuropsychology/Psycho-biology). So, I do know a litttle about human behavior. More importantly, I am a parent,  who sprang from a pool of the darkest shades of melanin, with X & Y chromosomes to announce my identity - what? ~~~ I am a Black man . . .

Ordinarily, my background would be referenced elsewhere, Yet, the contentiousness & volatility attached to the subject matter merits a synopsis about who is pushing the envelopI mention this because, we reside in a “society” that conditions us to dismiss a person’s perspective, if they lack what Amerikan’s refer to as a pertinent education or level of expertise.  I also have the distinct honor & privilege to be a Board Certified Fellow & Diplomate in African Centered (Black) Psychology. 


All conscious, Black parents know, that the universal police cliche' "to Protect & Serve" becomes a different saying, for Afrikan-Amerikan youth, boys in particular! The unspoken mantra becomes, to 'Avoid & Observe'. Without J.D. (Esq. /esquire) behind your name or any other letters, you can easily recall the outcome of the trial involving Rodney King, after viewing video footage from 1991 of LAPD officers brutalizing him to the fringes of death, all of which was caught on camera. And, somehow, what everyone observed, with his or her own eyes of the unedited footage was dissected, frame by frame, to excuse the barbaric behavior as within the limits of the “LAW.” The officers were acquitted in the spring of 1992.

Years later, there was a case in New York City. Amadou Diallo was riddled with bullets. He was described, as 'resembling or he favored a serial rapist.' On the 4th of February 1999, he was shot 19 times during a volley of 41 bullets. An NYPD officer said, "he mistook his wallet for a gun." A fellow officer had also stumbled, and they subsequently concluded, that he may have been shot by Diallo to justify the unrelenting gunfire. The state was later sued for 'Wrongful Death & Racial Profiling." There are far too many incidents to cite to  point out how "dark skinned" males seem to amp up the paranoia of Caucasian men.

Clearly, these psychopaths, yes - psychopaths, are following an unspoken script, endorsed by a society that selects characters to play specific roles. If it has crossed your mind, what makes them psychopaths? Their blatant disregard for the law, lack of remorse, and denial of a crime in the presence of irrefutable evidence. Hence, the title, Thespians In The Façade Of Justice, is being shared to offer some perspective on the outcome and the acquittal of the murderer of 17-year-old (& 21 days) Trayvon Martin. Reportedly, the killer later requested, that he wanted his gun back, because he is even more afraid now. His attorneys' agreed, that they think his life is in greater jeopardy.

In the event, you are perplexed about this unfolding reference; the only reason, I am citing the OJ Simpson Trial, is to highlight the NEED for major  financial resources to assure one can be “Lawyered–Up,” in order to showcase what it takes to have the actual evidence presented. Although, little comparison can be made, when it comes to the blatant systematic disregard to afford “Justice” for Afrikan-American  males in the 21st century, money can buy attorneys, who are very familiar with how to influence jurors.  Regardless, of the state's prosecution team being "out-lawyered," the travesty of allowing a killer of an unarmed teenager to be released with the blessings and sympathy of the court beckons memories of lynching (Coloreds) Blacks, before WWII, when the Ku Klux Klan ruled the south.

After stalking this kid for blocks at night in the rain, by car/truck/SUV (unsure of vehicle type), and finally on foot, with a loaded 9mm at his rear buttocks over his hip,  and a confrontation, which escalated into a skirmish that took this youngster's life, the Defense Attorneys' managed - to type cast the victim, as the assailant. ~~ Remain mindful, that NOT ONE TIME, did this self appointed policeman identify himself.  More importantly, he remained FREE for well over a month, after the shooting.  ~~~ Actions of paranoid ‘White-folk’ have gone run amok in Amerika.  Today, courts have become theatres for “Thespians” to parade around on center stage, working their magic with theatrics that would mesmerize viewers of Cirque Du Soleil finest shows. Why, because they juggle and toy with life & death decisions right before our eyes.

From the scene of a crime to the Halls of “Justice,” even when Afrikan-American males are the obvious victims, “justice” sways on the elusive scales of truth from the hospitals to the morgues. The scenarios malign & marginalize their worth, from the “womb to the tomb,” that darker skin – makes them, a bad seed - destined to wreck havoc on civilization. ~~ I submit to you, “Justice” wears very dark, tinted flip-up sunglasses, and she has removed the ‘blindfold’ that insures blind-justice. Beneath that robe - specifically, for Black, Red & Brown folks, I suspect a hidden dagger tucked away, at her waist, to shred the truth behind closed doors. ~~ These iconic statues holding the "scales-of-Justice" are merely bastardized versions of the Goddess of MA’AT - taken from ancient Egypt/Kemet.  Originally, native to North Afrika – before the Greeks & Romans, and contemporary European scholars renamed this region - The Middle East. MA’AT symbolized that your heart should be as light as a feather to balance the scales of truth. (The abbreviated meaning.)

Clearly, a layperson can discern what happens in court without having degrees to punctuate their name, but will they be heard or get any publicity? Typically, ‘news stories’ that lead, have drama to showcase tragedy. That is why we have “Thespians-At-Law,” who are very adamant during the vetting of potential Jurors. This is done to screen out Jurors, whom grilling attorneys doubt their ability to modify their perceptions. 

I encourage you to read further in other sources, rather than embrace what I am clearly stating. In short, knowledge & exposure play a major role in how we respond to what is put before us.  The majority of us are too uncomfortable to admit this. Even when the facts, definitively suggest that, those of us socialized in Amerika are “herd-thinkers,” if in fact, that can be considered as thinking? Mind you, I am not referring to you -- the current reader.

These views refer to the group or any cohort, who share similar demographics. Most of our perceptions are derived from socialization & common beliefs. However, they are anchored in the media, and to a degree, in select neighborhoods of cyberspace. So, people have a tendency to believe what they hear frequently or are constantly exposed to, particularly, if such views are repetitive, neatly packaged or spouted from the mouths of those viewed as objective, and more importantly, highly credentialed in the eyes of mainstream Americans. A great number of whom swallow their prejudices, as they slowly sip the intoxicating liquors of jargon extracted from  “professional witnesses” -- they vicariously identify with, who invariably -- often have Caucasian phenotypes or unquestionable traits common among the well assimilated to traditional “American” values or mannerisms.

By now, we should know, that “Justice” has very little to do with the actual evidence. In fact, in the U.S., it is more a function of modifying one’s perceptions into apperceptions. In simple terms, the morpheme or prefix (“ap”) modifies the meaning of the word to indicate that the context or history of the word (stimulus, image, action/event) has taken on new meaning to the perceiver. Usually, this is based upon the context of exposure or beliefs attached to the word and/or image(s), which shift a perception into an apperception. For example, had I introduced this brief commentary/discourse in a vernacular peculiar to specific ethnic groups or ‘street-talk’ peppered with the lexicon of Ebonics, Creole or Patois, I as the writer would have been judged and classified. The same would unfold, had I introduced these views with language threads common among the Irish in Belfast or working class Londoners who speak Cockney, stereotyped to be connected with Whitechapel in East London, a region attached to the ‘Jack the Ripper’ murders. The point is - a person’s “accepted” background, trumps the validity of information content, even in the arena where one seeks “Justice.”

The Courtroom becomes a stage, and the witness stand becomes center stage – with the “spotlight” trained on the witness for microscopic scrutiny of every nuance of one’s biometrics; on the canvas attorneys’ orchestrate Jurors or the public to focus on. The character of your person becomes a tool to morph evidence into whatever a skilled attorney (Thespian or Magician) puts before you. Even the judge is compelled to follow the ‘script’. 

Think of those classic iconic Greek masks of  ‘Comedy & Tragedy’ or Happiness & Sadness (originally African masks of archetypes). For the sake of fair argument, today’s Judicial System really does have laudable intentions in pursuit of Justice. However, REALITY strongly suggests otherwise. On your on; simply do a cursory survey of who among the socioeconomic spectrum disproportionately fills the dockets of courtrooms in America. Briefly examine the income bracket, gender and ethnic groups, while cross-referencing convictions with sentencing? I recommend that avenue rather than sharing my biased interpretations, because each of us recalls unique life experiences. 

Travesties of “Justice” are nothing new to working class people. In fact, they are part of the daily reality endured by melanin dominant humans throughout the Americas. For example, these three tragedies are highlighted to illustrate the pathology supported by Amerikan “Justice.” In May of 2012, a 13 year old Black kid, Darius Simmons was shot to death after taking out the trash in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The shooting was captured on the gun owner’s personal surveillance camera. It is blatant and premeditated, as you watch this elderly “Whiteman” go back into his house to retrieve a gun with no visible signs of stress or immediate provocation. Jordan Russell Davis, another 17 year old killed in Jacksonville, Florida at the hands of a paranoid Caucasian male with a powerful handgun on the 23rd of November 2012. The murderer alleged that their music was too loud and they appeared to have a shotgun in their SUV, following an exchange of words; alleged to be filled with expletives. ~~~ This young man is equally invisible. He only showed up as a blip or glitch on the radar of the Amerikan media. The murdered teen, Kendrick Johnson (aka KJ), who was found in a rolled up wrestling mat - upside down in Lowndes High School (old gym), in Valdosta Georgia 11 January of 2013. This 17 year-old Afrikan-american teenager, who was compared to the infamous Emmett Till with respect to the condition of his vessel (body) after examining photos, continues to be a mystery. In fact, county local authorities claimed, ‘he fell inside of the rolled up mat and expired, because he was unable to free himself while trying to retrieve a shoe.’ 

Hopefully, people of color will aggressively seize the time with action plans. Or will we wait to take a PROACTIVE approach based on pastoral care Professor Gregory Ellison’s book, “Cut Dead But Still Alive” in efforts to explore the redemption of a few troubled Souls,  as they attempt to navigate the crucible - in search of the “American Dream?” As a people and a Nation, have we become so delusional, that we believe Amerika cares anything about our male teenagers – other than their ability to make money for corporate professional franchises, as athletes or entertainers? 

Chances are likely, that in the vast theatre of life, on this “Amerikan-stage,” scripts are written and certain people are cast to fit roles prepared by quasi-invisible Directors. Shadow Directors, who skillfully undermine access to meaningful education,  & socio-architectural engineers who draft policies, designed to funnel our youth along coercive paths that lead to incarceration. All of which, comes back to haunt people of color in Hollywood, as exploitative films of urban youth. And, when those “movies” are aired for the American people and the world to watch, the viewers are anxious to see what the trailers & sound-bytes have advertised to take you on a roller coaster of emotions fueled by stereotypes, and personal prejudices. Finally, when the box office reviews share the net profit index, 95% of those royalties never reach the communities or people exploited. 

Scenarios of drama and Director's "creative-rights" pulse waves of emotions that crescendo with surges of adrenaline and endorphins, only rivaled by passionate sex to fuel our escape from reality.  Invariably, such experiences leave one in  deep Theta, a state akin to a trance or a toddler falling asleep to a lullaby, as the human body & mind submits to a cascade of personal reflections. Only to awaken to another day, as we attempt to fathom that Thespians and Magicians have become tools to distract us from "Justice."

In closing, may I candidly suggest, that in order to safeguard the future of young males of color, that “Black” fathers become the helmsman, to navigate the fleet of urban community ships, through the turbulent ocean currents of piranha & shark infested waters of mined laden tsunami waves of institutional RACISM! This WE MUST DO, rather than wait for mainstream society - to give us permission, to have an academic staged directed conversation or Town-Hall meeting -- dialogue or “community-talk” - about Ryan Coogler’s film, Fruitvale Station, which encapsulates the last 24 hours of Oscar Grant’s life New Year’s Day in 2009. And, at that well thought out time, when "that day" comes to an end, after observing those prescreened scholars,  from  mainstream Amerika ~ intellectualizing about the plight of our children, in a Nation or world – that could truly give a DAMN, ~~ "business will go on as usual" ...

Red Tails: The Tuskegee Airmen

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 01/18/12

Before you see these gladiators of the sky choreograph aerial 'dogfights' seemingly impossible outside of "Snoopy's" imagination, allow me to share a perspective to offer some context. "And, to the last man, we fight - we fight - we fight," a mantra that Afrikan-American men, resound in their hearts everyday. A chant that resonates among the conscious men of color who realize that the battles for our sanity & a piece of the "American pie" are a daily campaign of war. "Red Tails" is more than a rare cinematic tapestry of Afrikan-American men showcasing their talent, as Thespians of the silver & blue screens. It is the Spirit of our Ancestor's voices echoing in the wind on the perpetual pendulum of time - a petition for parity. 

A masterpiece of action, captured in a realm, where lift, drag, & gravity are equally dangerous to flying bullets and the dreaded 88mm flak cannon. This film announces to the world - the legacy of African-American's in harms way, bravery, brilliance, sensitivities, resilience, and Aviator skills, to safeguard a place that would lynch either one of them without 'due process.' 

Short of being a commander of a ship, having the Wings & title of a Pilot conferred upon a person a passport to write music on the skies of heaven, and in theory/title, granted the right to give enlisted Caucasian men orders. So, in a country wedded to a pledge to malign and undermine the true history and contributions by a people upon whose backs this nation was virtually built, it was taboo and blasphemy to entrust them with such power & visibility. It was common knowledge, that in the American military, racism was at home, just like sand on the beach & fried chicken in the south. 

The 'good old boys' have been dedicated to denying the world the privilege of seeing men of color rescue and escort "White men" to safety, during an era when they amplified that these people were lazy cowards and less intelligent than apes! Unless they saw an opportunity of making incredibly large net earnings at the box-office and subsequent video releases. "White men" dreaded people of color coming into the knowledge that melanin dominant  humans protected those who usually abuse and deny them their human rights. Remember, the primary incentives to explore telling our stories are directly related to making money, and keeping the truth camouflaged or muted by the versions 'America' is more comfortable disseminating.

Buried in the archives of tainted records - layered to hide contributions made by Afrikan-Americans - are gigabytes, even terabytes of stories, easily penned into a script for Hollywood venues.  And, when such truths are told in the great forums of cinema, melanin dominant boys will evolve into men in pursuit of goals, other than to entertain and excel in sports. At that time, our children will seek fame & fortune beyond the stereotypes, while our ‘vanilla siblings’ will jump on & off the carousel of fear. People of color, no longer have the luxury to wait until “White folk” tell our stories, even when making money assuages their fears, because they will continue to associate our sense of cultural identity, as defiance and militancy. 

Marginalization, and abuse are engraved into the cultural mindset of American education, and collective beliefs as tolerable prejudices, and “bad apples,” rather than the obvious pathology, characteristic of paranoid thinking, as evidenced today in government. My misguided ‘vanilla brothers’ of the earth are intoxicated by their habits & addiction to greed, so much so, that they are petrified with fear and ignorance.  Even in the 21st century, many Americans - remain in deep denial of the haunting messages buried in the memories of witnesses who observed German prisoners of war being treated in America better than the returning Tuskegee aviators who never lost a bomber they escorted. 

“Turtle Island” and home to the Red and Brown men who lived in harmony with nature – before the “White man” came, was carved into many pieces to affirm the system of values imposed by colonizers. The descendants of those “White men” continue to suppress the truth, and elevate a few tokens rather than acknowledge the great contributions of men & women of darker hue. This is consistent with today’s lexicon, keeping alive - the notion of dishonesty, and one failing to keep his word as, “an Indian giver.”  “The good-old boys” are unrelenting in their propaganda, and they would rather undermine a Presidency to serve all the people, rather than share the wealth with those to whom it truly belongs. 

Almost 70 years ago, the US government realized that not only did they need the help of “Russia” (aka The Soviet Union/USSR) our later declared threat and enemy to safeguard this nation’s security, but the infamous Tuskegee Airmen, and the ‘Navajo Code Talkers’ of the Pacific theatre from 1942 – 1945, who saved thousands of lives, which hastened the end of the war.  Other roles were also played by those of darker hue, the men who wore the ‘Black Panther’ patch, as an insignia, indicating that they were either in tank divisions of offense or young warriors charged to destroy enemy tanks. 

The last group  (of color, except with White Officers) deployed to engage in battle was the 679th Tank Battalion of which my father is a survivor.  ~~ I remember having his patch sewn on one of my brother’s “Blues” after his discharge from the Marine Corps, as the Viet Nam war came to an end. 

Red Tails, although a very special story, is just another laudable tale, which surfaced under another name as an HBO special in 1995. There are many, many more about our unsung heroes & heroines of color,  which have yet to be told. The well-known Josephine Baker story, and her treatment peppered with society-sanctioned humiliation, after she served the alliance to aid the French and the US.  The gifted & talented warriors, who played invisible roles in realizing the allied forces triumph over 'the Nazi war machine,' should be recognized daily.  Just as the Old-Guard of Arlington National Cemetery watches over the “Tomb of The Unknown Soldier," we should serve as sentinels and voices for those who may be forgotten.  Those of us, with pen, voice or real estate in cyberspace, should sound an alarm that their stories are told with accuracy and recognition in their honor. 

America, a very young nation, with less than two centuries of Independence, as a declared sovereign country, was in the business of making short sighted deals & decisions derived from greed, colonialism, and American bred Institutional Racism. 

Forces that punctuated her pathology have been clarified by the wisdom of one of America’s most well-read and internationally renowned Psychiatrist, Dr. Frances Cress-Welsing. Which begs the question, why?  What would compel a Psychiatrist to delve into such international issues related to politics, humanity, war & the global economy?  Actually, the answer is simple and succinct; the pathological fear of melanin dominant men (commonly & mistakenly referred to as Black men) impacts the collective mental health of a Nation. Accordingly, Dr. Cress-Welsing's thesis remains unchanged, "they (Caucasian men) fear their genetic annihilation," via the phenotypic dominance expressed in the chromosomes of men of color. 

My position, although definitively supportive of  "The Cress Theory of White Supremacy" merely adds, that executive functioning, that is planning and judgment, borne from insight are diminished, due to an insidious form of cerebral compromise, (skewed left hemispheric functioning exacerbated by pineal calcification) which impacts the biochemistry of the limbic system, with respect to subcortical nuclei that modulate one's quest for food, sex and shelter. In this group, rather than meeting the basic survival needs of a species, they are driven by aggression and greed, rather than negotiation strategies with the collective human family.   

The genocide of the Native Americans, the import of Afrikans via the slave trade, burning Caucasian women in Salem Massachusetts, and the Jim Crow laws that saluted lynching men of color and raping our women were all conceived in the minds or "dysfunctional brain's" of Caucasian men connected to exclusive fraternities & clubs, including the American born terrorists - Ku Klux Klan.  Their collective actions continue to serve as a barometer of the temperament of this segment of the human family, as a select group of misguided "men" married to a doctrine fueled by a global media they manipulate. 

This small cohort continues to corrupt the beliefs and behavior of the masses with their viral laden archetypes borne from a lineage tied to an ice age that thwarted their ability to connect with nature. Thereby, birthing a mentality prone to hoarding behavior and barbaric acts of terrorism, all of which is associated with base chakra obsessions to control and manipulate the world or realm of physicality. In part, this is due to their inability to grasp the fact, that we are spiritual beings, inherently connected to each other and the earth. 

Having shared the above, it is my sincere hope that my candor is viewed as other than offensive or abrasive.  So, please pardon my choice, to steer clear of euphemisms and politically correct language?  Something is profoundly wrong with these folk, a very small segment of the 'human' occupants on the planet earth empowered to orchestrate such chaos.  Dr. Cress-Welsing, eloquently expands on Neely Fuller's research, "The System of White Supremacy" (SOWS) in great detail.   May I suggest that you Google it, and read about it on your own to better understand their perspective on the forces that drive these pathological fears. 

Conversely, very similar motives are emphasized in my research, which are addressed in my primary published works, "Reality Check . . . & The Awakening . . . " Both texts address the system of values and mechanized approach to remove Spirit from that which makes us human. References are also cited to shed some light on what fuels the paranoia & propaganda of Caucasian men.  Even, beneath the banner of a military alliance to defeat Germany & Japan, propaganda fueled the ignorance and fear manufactured in America that carried strange deceitful tales. One in particular comes to mind, that the Tuskegee airmen had tails, as well as, all so called "coloreds" or Negroes. The objective was to suggest that these gifted Aviators & Warriors who were first given inferior and outdated aircraft lacked the intelligence of monkeys, thereby ensuring that they would fail in all of their missions. For the record, the P-51 Mustangs were delivered much later during the war when the US realized that they would lose, in light of the number of bombers failing to return after sorties. 

More importantly, the stories about so-called 'coloreds' or Negroes having tails was a futile attempt to forestall European women from engaging in intimate relationships with the 'coloreds or negroes' in the military. This lends very strong support to the Cress Theory's foundation premise, Caucasian's fear of genetic annihilation. 

In the event, you are in search of a classic thematic commentary on the movie in a vacuum, wedded to the storyline of the accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen, you may be too conditioned as a linear thinking well trained member of the herd to fathom the global significance of the movie. Moreover, what sound minded people would obsess over who escorts them or their crew to safety during a military campaign? Men of color, particularly those who are 'conscious' have to balance themselves daily in efforts to navigate life in a world prone to stereotype them, and declare their worth. When melanin dominant men leave the sanctuary of their homes, they have to be vigilant as they walk the gauntlet with every step, until they have returned home because that is a day-to-day reality of war in America.

Reality Check ~ Abracadabra: Is it Madness or Magic?

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 10/07/11

First of all, the Gentleman @ 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue of Washington, DC, USA still has my support. Now, please allow me to explore the issues before us that somehow have been skewed to suggest that the current President's pace is too slow in addressing the plethora of critical concerns impacting this nation. The above translates into why "I" have been away so long.  In these very challenging times, all of us must be astute & resolute in handling our affairs. The current economic "zeitgeist" is indeed, the sign of our times.  

~~ Being the President of one of the most gifted nations on the 3rd planet from the Sun, which is only one of greater than 200 billion stars. (The sun is a star, Eteoha, Terra, Ereds, Eresetu, Diqiu, Prthv, Gaia, Tellus; aka "earth" is merely a small planet). Yes my siblings, she has many, many names.  Please pardon the tangent?  "I" am merely attempting to illustrate where we fit into the grand scheme of the universe. With greater than 200 billion stars, it is incalculable to surmise how many planets reside in the galaxies.

Moving forward, the US President, has a sworn duty to the Republic, rather than this planet. As such, those duties transcend the above average human inhabitant's imagination. Understandably, the lay public receives information on a "need-to-know basis." And, guess what? That same tenet applies to the President.  Having shared that, the quagmire unfolds. The current US President is genuinely interested in empowering the people to navigate their destiny. After all, the republic constitutes the people; at least, this is what the language suggests. However, Republicans slice the pie to serve the needs of their constituents, and Democrats claim to slice the pie for all of theirs (the people), that is, those who are eligible to participate in the electoral process.

Such language gives rise to what the Original Native Americans referred to as, "speaking with a forked-tongue" ~ double talk!  Herein lies the ultimate challenge. The President is attempting to empower the people, and contrary to popular belief, he too receives "stories." Albeit his information network dwarfs the people with respect to volume, urgency & priority, information is delivered ad infinitum on a "need-to-know basis," a great deal of which lacks corroboration.  In today's world, a substantial amount of 'intelligence' is "cyber-alert-chatter;" most of which is distractive & disinformation. This begets the inquiry,'who decides what the President should know'?

Abracadabra, briefing protocols were in place prior to him being sworn in.  Generations before Facebook & Twitter, The Associated Press & World Press, and a variety of International Intelligence agencies with a spectrum of "storefronts" to leak and or tweak information controlled the stream of thought. Thereby, influencing the ebb & flow of global stock markets, with Wall Street serving as a pillar of the US hub.  Reality Check, the Internet has changed all of that into something new, so new, that it morphs like a chameleon, as you read these words! 

The magic of Abracadabra has mutated into the MADNESS fueled by the "good-old-boys" pulling strings in the House & Senate to toy with this country's solvency and stability like kids 'playing seesaw' on the playground. Essentially, on any given project or Bill, they 'call huddle' ~ followed by a time out or throwing a questionable flag to distract and or frustrate the republic (the people). As a result, the lay public reacts to the cues amplified by the magicians of the media ~Abracadabra~ only to beget Marvin Gaye's classic, "What's Going On" ~~~ 

Your attention becomes focused on an illusion, which prompts you to believe that the President has the power & resources to make these tricks transparent.  Hence, the paradox, and the oxymoron of "Freedom of Speech" in a system of Free Enterprise married to capitalism announce its presence. Money and resources purchases marketing strategies and tactics to deliver inaccurate information daily.

And, woe to those who dare violate that market of stock - cash flow in the money mill of GLOBAL PLUTOCRACY! Safe passage IS ostracism and loss of job. 

At such times, because of the Internet, and the time sensitive parameters of controlling group-think, tactics of immediacy are deployed - Abracadabra, the magic of marketing madness, that is confusion - the twin of chaos.

This is analogous to you trying to drive your car during rush hour in the heart of the Holiday season with 3 kids in the back seat, while two have managed to release their seatbelts attempting to stick their heads - out the window. Mind you, the falling snow is becoming heavier ~ slush is building up, and Troopers are trying to extract those drivers who are "tipsy" from the flow of traffic. You are driving, with nowhere to pull over - while the only child in a seatbelt has begun to lament about how he needs to go to the toilet. And, in the event - you are among those readers who question the relevance of such a scenario or metaphor, remember, our children are our most precious cargo. 

If you are still oblivious, the primary objective is to get them to a safe & secure place, to ensure their future & prosperity. Such is the sworn duty and mission of the President, prior to being baptized into the ocean of turbulent murky waters, which has buried skeletons in deep sea chests rather than a skeleton or two in a closet.  Welcome to the true face of international politics, where high school civics has been replaced with "sacrifices-have-to-be-made," collateral damage and a "threat to national security," often become a manufactured priority.  This ending statement, Trumps the needs of the middle & working class everyday!!

Just Because It's Mother's Day - Everyday!

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 05/08/11

As you can see, it has been many months since "I" have chosen to share a post. Obviously, a great deal has transpired subsequent to my last entry.  Incidents "I" preferred to avoid mentioning here, prompted me to chart a path conducive to foster wisdom, rather than public dialogue.  Eyes Of Ma'at is a valued sanctuary. Therefore, "I" make conscious efforts to steer clear of reactionary comments.  Moving forth, "I" will revisit recording my reflections in cyberspace.  Having shared that, "I" have elected to repeat my thoughts regarding "Mother's Day", as a symbolic reminder to the birthing of a new consciousness for the 'Hue-man Family' in our preparation to thrive in 2012,

"Just Because It's Mother's Day - Everyday!

So, here we are again, dancing around the divine order of the universe in efforts to acknowledge the fathomless envelop of a woman's womb. The most sacred portal of creation capable of weaving genetic material into the manifestation of a hue-man offspring, that spiral of creation we lovingly christen as a baby.  Metaphysically translated into a "Ba-be", that is the bringing forth of a spirit into form. Hence, the reference to the Egyptian (Kemetian) term "BA" for Spirit and the English term "Be" - a state of that which has manifest or has come into existence (being - am or is) "BE!"  Where else has science or history taken us to verify this truth, other than the womb of a woman?  Each day you breathe life - you are compelled by the Laws of Nature to celebrate and honor your Mother, regardless of the memories you may cherish or prefer to have never touched the archives of your filed away recollections - she granted you the gift of life - birth! That alone makes her your MOTHER, albeit you may view her as other than mums, mommy, mama or a nice Lady, the title is perpetually hers to claim - MOTHER!

Sacred implies something that is 'Godlike', an adjective that bespeaks veneration reminiscent of qualities akin to one's Creator. The depth and compassion of a people are determined by the treatment and place held by the women who have given birth. However, one should remain mindful that all women nurture regardless of fruit ripened from the orchard of their vessel. Because women mirror the environment and the ecosystems of the planet, what she produces is directly related to how we treat her or sustain her.  Choosing very carefully, a few lyrics from the late James Brown classic, "A Man's World", but it would be nothing ~ nothing, without a woman or a girl."    

Clearly, nothing would be recorded of the universe for the very strings of DNA are painted on the canvas of life with her mitochondrial DNA, the energy that allows Spirit to "BE" woven into form. She is the maestro of matter, the keeper of "Higgs Boson" and the musician that initiates the electromagnetic super charged "Higgs Field" that evokes GOD to take on mass and sculpt itself into form. And, it is her energy that will rise again like the Phoenix associated with each Winter Solstice, shifting the season from the barrenness of Winter, into the earth's reorientation to bathe in the light of the SUN for Spring to announce an encore appearance. This too you can count on for the Solstice of 2012, forbade the ways of men to interfere.  And, you are invited to take these words literally, 'forbade the ways of men to inter you into a state of fear.' 

Happy Mother's Day

Let us treat the earth better - our Mothers will be pleased.

 

The Original Paradigm

by Mfundi Rasayon, PhD on 08/09/10

     This is a brief entry. During the last week of July 2010, Dr. Lennell Dade (Associate Professor of Psychology at Lincoln University) and I were privileged to present at The 42nd International Convention of The Association of Black Psychologists, in Chicago, Illinois. We presented on, The Paradigm Shift: Stolen Legacy2, which addressed the tendency of mainstream scientists and scholar's efforts to repackage what ancient civilizations embraced and practiced millennia before Europe's Renaissance. Specifically, a fundamental goal was to add clarity and confirmation to the origins of New Age thinking and concepts of Complementary Medicine & Spirituality to be rooted in beliefs that predate Pythagoras, and any notion of Graeco-Roman science or history.   

     In summary, our presentation along with a variety of others emphasized the need for people of color in particular, to rise above the pseudo-protocol and distractions systematically employed to marginalize and or dismiss the achievements of melanin dominant peoples' throughout the world.  We concluded, by revisiting the position taken and advocated in the book, Stolen Legacy by George James, that our melanin recessive siblings find it excruciatingly difficult to accept, and acknowledge the phenomenal impact and contributions of so called yellow, red, brown and particularly Black (Afrikans) have had, and continue to have on science, medicine, architecture and history.

       Finally, we along with the collective membership of the organization accepted our mission to better educate our estranged members of the hue-man family to a reality that they find so difficult to fathom. In closing, I share these observations, because Americans continue to struggle with the polarized beliefs that people of color - as penned in his-story is a reasonable representation of the Truth. So, today I have chosen to share with you, that we have been so consistently misinformed that an obvious facade obscures the facts so much, that many of us succumb to childish anger when we are exposed to such knowledge.
