AN OPEN LETTER TO IYANLA VANZANT REGARDING FERGUSON!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Iyanla Vanzant,

May God be pleased with you, and your loved ones, and I pray you receive this in a positive but strong spirit, and not one of defensiveness and umbrage.

"Justice" is a principle of fair dealing. It has legal, ethical, and real time aspects to it. Justice also balances the human mind. When human beings feel deprived of justice, their frustration, anger and fear grows within that mind. The greater the injustice, the greater the imbalance. To blame those deprived of justice for reacting to IN-justice in ways not deemed "appropriate" by civil society, is morally disingenuous. The key to solving the problem is to discover the root of their oppression, deal with it, remove it or contain it, and then-but ONLY then-can a spirit of PEACE begin to develop......

...When protesters say, "No Justice, No Peace", what they are saying is, "without that principle of fair dealing, there will be no rest....no ease...." to scold the victim for reacting to his oppression,only appears that you want to PACIFY HIM OR HER, not bring peace.

Iyanla, not once have you had a show spotlighting "black on black crime" on your "Fix My Life" series. We here in Chicago have NEVER seen you come in the hood with your rhetoric, talking about "Fix my life"...you are playing up to the whites and non blacks in your audience by shifting blame to "black on black crime". Saddening.

Please stop preaching about "black on black crime" until you, like many of us in as many ways as we can try to quell this malady,roll your sleeves up and spotlight THAT on your show, to "interrupt the pattern..." then have seats. You look hypocritical by droning on about that issue without ANY action on your part. You are supposed to be an ELDER. Yet your argument is out of order.

Tighten up, Mama.

When the possibility that white police officers may be threatened, here you come with your cameras, trolling for ratings, trying to pacify the victim and mollify the predators. I was HIGHLY disappointed at what you presented tonight. I think that you bit off far more than you can chew, and some things need time before cameras and psychobabble come into the picture.

Were you sent there to "interrupt the pattern", or pacify the "Negroes"??? The flowery rhetoric you preach is nothing new to me. I was raised under many Afrocentric men and women, and pastors, Imams, etc....please be careful that your heart is clear and pure, because it can come across as a new age, evangelical "performance" for your show and for your boss, Oprah Winfrey.

God bless,

Love,

Hassan Hartley

"THE NEW MINSTREL SHOW: COONERY AND BUFFOONERY" CAMPAIGN HAS BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-new-minstrel-show-coonery-and-buffoonery/x/8270091

Hey guys!


This is the initial campaign for my new book and documentary, "THE NEW MINSTREL SHOW: Coonery and Buffoonery in 21st Century Black Entertainment"......I initially wanted actual pictures of people like some of Tyler Perry's characters, Married to Medicine,  Nene Leakes, Lil Wayne, etc....but there would be legal issues in so doing.



The images of blacks in the dominant society's media have regressed to the point where Amos and Andy would look like pro black radicals....



What is the impact of this on black children?

What is the impact on how non-blacks who are in state and Federal Government and make policy view us...?
Is there a purpose for depicting black women as hyper aggressive, angry, loud bullies?
Why are black  men portrayed as inarticulate, uneducated thugs and gangsters by the media?
Why are some blacks so eager to fall into those stereotypes for the sake of a dollar?What, from a scientific perspective, is the impact of negative imagery on the black psyche...?
Are homosexual black men the new sidekicks and mammies for black women on reality TV...?


(Coon Train clips created by Tariq Elite...)

I will also rate, on a "coon scale", with each entertainer, how they fall in the cartoonish, negative imagery of their portrayals.


I am working on both a book and a documentary on this topic....
I am looking to raise $8,500 to $10,000 for both...
( The book is 100% SELF PUBLISHED, and the documentary will be 100% INDEPENDENT, as to avoid being watered down by mainstream book publishing houses executives and editors).

 In this book, I will focus on the ratchet, ignorant,(or as some folks say,"ignant"), stereotypical imagery of black folks on television, in Hollywood, in sports, politics and in music. It will be both deep and entertaining, so get ready! Look for it sometime in late fall 2014/early winter 2014!!!!!!!!!!!

THE NEW MINSTREL SHOW: COONERY AND BUFFOONERY IN 21ST CENTURY BLACK ENTERTAINMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!


COMING SOON! WITH YOUR HELP!

"KILL HIM! KILL HIM! KILL HIM! KILL HIM!

Hey guys.....

A few weeks ago, I experienced a "situation"......

I was watering my plants (I am growing my own vegetables in my apartment), and noticed that the sun was out, so I wanted to  get them some sun.....I tried pulling up the shades, only it went up too far....I look down and see a drug deal going down between four black brothers.......

They immediately assumed I was spying on their deal, and ran off.....


Before they ran though, they said, " NIGGA WE COMING BACK WITH SOME HEAT AND MERC YOUR ASS!!!!!!!!"

Merc is slang for murder....


I have no guns, and now four thugs threatened my life....I called the police and told them to send a car because I am in fear for my life.....

I didn't give a DAMN about the drugs..... I WANT TO STAY ALIVE....



Within a few minutes, two squad cars pulled up and I explained what happened....they asked me if I saw where they went...I told them the little I knew....they basically blew me off and said....

"Well if they come back, just file a complaint......"


Wait, WTF...?



I got even more scared and started getting my shoes on to GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE.....

In 3 minutes, I noticed the same two cars pulled the four thugs over....



AND WAS LOCKING THEM UP.......


The whole neighborhood was outside shouting at my window, calling a "dry snitching bitch ass nigga...."

Turns out, they all types of drugs AND guns on them........

Someone yelled out, " He gonna get at least 10 years....that's FED TIME!!!!"

His girlfriend comes out.......screaming at the other thugs....

I WANT YOU TO KILL HIM

Then about 50 people started chanting at my window...

"KILL HIM"

"KILL HIM"


men....women...even children.....shouting......


"Im gonna die today..." I thought.....

For five to seven hours, they were shouting at my window.....they were blocking the front entrance,so they felt I had no where to go......

I called all my friends......

crickets.

Then I turned to my family.....

Finally Moms  called me back......"pack a bag and I'm gonna pull up....JUMP IN THE CAR AND LETS HIT IT OUT OF THERE..."


.....And we did......


Now, what do you guys suggest I do.....?

Give me your thoughts on the situation....?

HELP ME UNDERSTAND THIS PETTINESS!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey guys....


Below is a copy of an email I received with the words,

Card Violation Warning: Sales Tax‏

 

 

So I clicked on the email, assuming that it was mere junk, and here is what it read....

Good afternoon,

I hope this finds you well. My name is Rossie Montenegro and I am an Office Manager at Florida International University. I have called the number listed on your website (773-655-0125 )to speak with a representative about my issue but have been unable to speak with someone and would greatly appreciate a reply to this email.

I ordered the book "When The Lights Go Out: The Truth About Black Male Prison Sexuality" from your business on behalf of a faculty member in my department on January 2013. I was unaware that I was charged a sales tax of $1.40 from which Florida International University is exempt as a public state university. As a result, I received the violation below and have been instructed to contact you so that the $1.40 sales tax may be refunded into my department credit card.

I would greatly appreciate your assistance in resolving this issue promptly. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or require more information. Thank you in advance.

Best wishes,


Rossie Montenegro
Office Manager, Health Services Administration

VIOLATION? WHAT....?

 

$1.40.....

 

NOT $14.00....

 

NOT $140.00.....

 

ONE DOLLAR.....

 

40 CENTS.....

 

Now, being that my business is an online entity, let's ignore the fact that sales tax is applicable for online companies, and that because I am not based in Florida, Florida laws do not necessarily apply....

  Did you catch the date of the sale...?

January, 2013...?


What year is it now...?


This...."Woman".....decided to write a multiple paragraph letter, and then CC it to about ten different people in her school...

 

Ever since the death of Trayvon Martin, I have been suspicious of non-blacks in Florida. This confirms that doubt.

How petty.

How utterly infantile and petty.

 

So petty, that I had to put her on BLAST.

 

This is all.

Brother Hassan

WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT: STILL ON SALE! GET YOUR COPY TODAY!

CLICK HERE FOR YOUR KINDLE E-BOOK COPY TODAY!

https://www.payloadz.com/go/sip?id=2669864







Let me start off by telling you what this book is NOT:

1).It is NOT about prison rape, or sexual abuse.
2).It is NOT prison erotica, filth, or smut.
3). It is NOT fiction.
4). It damn sure is NOT a joke, or punchline.



 My book, "When The Lights Go Out: The Truth About Black Male Prison Sexuality", is the culmination of a study that I conducted among over 2,000 current and former black male prison inmates, a study of human sexuality, sexual identity politics within the prison social fabric, and the separation of fact from myth as it relates to long held stereotypes of prison sexual abuse.


I examine the role of education, religion, hip-hop, homophobia, and the impact of what I call a "manhood vacuum" on young black men in prison, who are being trafficked in and out of the system at annual rates higher than the population of black slaves in the U.S. in 1850, shortly before the Civil War. As so many millions of young black men are captured and warehoused in prisons, sexuality, sexual contact, and the possibility of massive HIV and other STI infections being brought home to millions of black women(and other men) cannot be ignored, and my book takes a provocative, nuanced, thoughtful look into a world that most people are either too scared or too homophobic to have healthy discussions about. Find out what really happens, When The Lights Go Out.

ARE BLACK WOMEN ABOVE CRITIQUE WITHIN THE BLACK COMMUNITY????

Hey guys!


I was booted out of a Facebook travel group dedicated to "international travel".


LOLOLOL!!!!

You will never, ever guess why.
A black female posted an article reposted from a blog by Cory Alexander Haywood listed below:

http://www.eurweb.com/2013/11/the-black-hat-hey-sisters-feel-free-to-pursue-white-men-they-dont-want-you-anyway/

In this travel group on Facebook,(Nomad-ness Travel) the black women who read this article did not deconstruct it with logic, see it for what it was(a conversation piece wherein generalizations are used to get black men and women to discussing "interracial" relationships, an already incendiary topic), they went on the attack.

Personal insults, vitriol, anger, viciousness were the order of the day as the response to this ONE black man's blog. The level of viciousness is never higher than when black women are criticized, no matter the topic. Black males can be thrown under the bus with frequency and regularity akin to rush hour in a major city when it comes to topics related to us.

Are black women so above reproach that they cannot even withstand ANY critique, whether justified or not????

When I asked several of the black women who were launching personal attacks against the guy to give a cogent, coherent argument in response without emotion to his blog, they turned their sights on me personally.

It got nasty.

One woman, who was nearly 275lbs. with a haircut no longer than mine, began attempting to call me an "internet troll"  


I fired back with statistics about 80% of black women being classified as "obese" and going in on her personally to show her that if you want to get personal, you PICKED THE RIGHT DUDE TO TRY IT WITH.


She backed off slowly with every wig snatching read I shot her way. Some other gal named Kia Richards tried to back her up and was even more vicious. I asked her if she was a bitch(are you a bitch?I don't recall saying anything to you and yet you called me a "loser", Fag"  and other names in my inbox)...., and she immediately retreated after that, when I asked her if she was a bitch and pointed out she was named after the cheapest car on the market, but wants me to treat her like a queen. After one of the admins, a woman with a penis who identified itself as Jason Francis, deleted me, I began putting dots together...

Most of the negative customer service I see in person happens occurs when black women are the cashiers.

Nasty, rude, overbearing, mean, aggressive, bossy, shrill behavior that has no place in a customer service context.

Obviously all black women are not like this, but my need to preface my critique with such remarks shows how  vitriolic and illogical the ones that are can be.

Let's face it: The black community is a matriarchy, and there are far too many black women who feel that blistering attacks on black men with whom they disagree on ANYTHING is "cute" and acceptable. Ask for logic and with each response, they devolve five years until kindergarten viciousness is their norm. When Iyanla Vanzant said black women were "out of order" months ago, even she was attacked with hatred by her own sisters.

Whether I agree or disagree with even a word of dude's article, my merely asking for logic got me attacked as if I were him so let's have at it. Black women use black men as verbal punching bags in these incendiary debates, yet the minute a brother fights back, far too many play "victim" and act as though they did nothing wrong.

I'm sick of nasty, rude, shrill, disrespectful sisters in customer service positions thinking that they can treat black male patrons like dirt, but if a white male comes in( and I have witnessed this) and calls them a bitch, they have the classic Negro Bed Wench look of hurt and rejection in their eyes, as if their master did not validate them.


BLACK WOMEN.

I LOVE YOU.

YOU NEED TO PULL NASTY "BITCH" ATTITUDE OUT OF YOU AND THROW IT AWAY, HOWEVER.


YOU ARE OUT OF ORDER.
