talking about creoles, it really gets to me that Swahili is held in high regard compared to other African languages even though its existence was merely for slave trade.

Ayo Panic...can you break this shit down for me? It's from one of the comments at the last M&G opinion piece I posted. Shit's way too higher grade for me (either that or it's the whole Friday afternoon Itis thing), but it seems hella interesting. Please don't Colin me...

It's important when evaluating both the argument and the counter-argument to focus on the texts themselves, not on emotion or name-calling. A good way to do this is to a**ume this were an argument that "Michael Jordan’s recent disagreement with the Washington mayor is a product of tall people’s supremacy complex" and apply your own tests to the logic. To the counter-argument first – I would not necessarily agree that “These judgments are also not connected to Cliff as a person, but rather to his being a white person and this is what makes Mngxitama a racist”. There is insufficient evidence to draw this final conclusion. Rather, the key elements of the ‘post colonial literary theory’ used in Mngxitama’s argument are (1) The use of words and generalisations that cannot be specifically defined and can’t be tied down in time and space (a good French legal test of whether a definition is meaningful or not) – look carefully at the words ‘the whole reality’ in this sentence “A basic mistake is the misreading of white supremacy as the preserve of neo-Nazi lunatic elements and not part of the whole reality that naturalises white privilege at the expense of blacks.” What is the exact semantic meaning of “the whole reality”? (2) Determinism – the removal of agency. This is an ingredient common to Marxist theory (and some racist theory – Mein Kampf, or Houston Stewart Chamberlain’s Myth of the 20th Century for instance). Racism is not a conscious act by sentient, sapient beings, with agents and recipients. It is a mysterious ether, with none of the before, that all of one group or another are guilty of. There are no individual distinctions between people. No member of any group has any choices as an individual, and individual decisions are all subsumed into some mysterious “collective unconscious” – the use of the actual word “unconscious” indicates this . All of group X are one thing or another – be they Jews, whites, blacks, the proletariat, the bourgeoisie or any other collective noun one may choose. The logic of (a) Does the individual have any choices at all? and (b) Is there any empirical or scientific evidence to back up the collective uniformity theory? are not tested. Hence I would argue that the primary thesis being advanced is one of “supreme determinism” or pa**ive observation of inexorable forces beyond any active control, and this theory could be applied to any dichotomy in social science (tall vs short people, for instance). However there needs to be a more rigorous argument to support this “determinism” theory rather than stating it as a self-evident truth. That’s when the argument starts becoming interesting.

This is the kind of stuff that my man Solarman f***s with!!! ;) ;) ;)

sad indeed, i dont have answers to this but i think the justice system especially the court proceedings are part of the problem. I dont know how it feels to be raped, coz im a guy and has never been arrested, but too often the victims are interrogated in a most insensitive manner and the credibility of the woman has been questioned in an inappropriate manner. In many cases, the woman’s own behavior or even her style of dress have been given unreasonable attention during the proceedings. remember the Kanga story, this on itself implies that the woman has provoked it!!

Today, 15 years ago, Ken Saro-Wiwa and other activists were executed for standing up against the Nigerian government and Shell's crude oil extraction in the Niger Delta.

That is the case with most white people!!! It is like they are programmed not see  white privilege which is the root cause of racism. but i guess one could argue that is the case with men as well, we don't see our male privilege. But yeah f*** Kanye, f*** Bush and f*** Matt Lauer!!!

The first excerpts of former President George W. Bush's interview with NBC New's Matt Lauer were released on Tuesday night. And what stands among the noteworthy bits about Bush's political mindset in the moment of existential crises is that, for all that happened, his low point was being called racist by Kanye West.

From the interview, which will air Monday, November 8, 2010 at 8 p.m. ET on "Matt Lauer Reports" in advance of the release of Bush's book "Decision Points."

MATT LAUER: About a week after the storm hit NBC aired a telethon asking for help for the victims of Katrina. We had celebrities coming in to ask for money. And I remember it vividly because I hosted it. And at one part of the evening I introduced Kanye West. Were you watching?
PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: Nope.

MATT LAUER: You remember what he said?

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: Yes, I do. He called me a racist.

MATT LAUER: Well, what he said, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: That's -- "he's a racist." And I didn't appreciate it then. I don't appreciate it now. It's one thing to say, "I don't appreciate the way he's handled his business." It's another thing to say, "This man's a racist." I resent it, it's not true, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency.

MATT LAUER: This from the book. "Five years later I can barely write those words without feeling disgust." You go on. "I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn't like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq's weapons of ma** destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to Katrina represented an all time low."

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: Yeah. I still feel that way as you read those words. I felt 'em when I heard 'em, felt 'em when I wrote 'em and I felt 'em when I'm listening to 'em.

MATT LAUER: You say you told Laura at the time it was the worst moment of your Presidency?

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH: Yes. My record was strong I felt when it came to race relations and giving people a chance. And-- it was a disgusting moment.

after reading an article about ZAR nightclub, it would not be a bad idea to ma**acare a tenderpreneur and all his broke friends and go to spend all his money at the club whilst rocking some blood-soaked Timbs.
