Straight Outta Con-Man

Straight Outta Con Man:
Exposin’ the Truth About NWA
                      Min. Paul Scott

“Fool me one time shame on you/Fool me twice can’t put the blame on you”“
                No Role Modelz-  J Cole

I’d be lying to myself and you if I said that the trailer for the new NWA (N*** With Attitude)  movie, “Straight Outta Compton” didn’t make me wanna stand in  line and drop 10 bucks to see the flick.  The trailer suggests that the film centers around a group of young men  experiencing the trials and tribulations of being black in America during the 80’s, who used their fame  to become the official spokes-homies of the ‘hood.   In the  aftermath of the deaths of  Mike Brown, Sandra Bland,  Samuel DuBose and numerous others who died mysteriously after confrontations with CWA (Cops With Attitude)  ,  who wouldn’t want to see a film about a bunch of rappers throwing up their middle fingers in the face of authority and inspiring a generation of black youth to become revolutionists ?
Interesting story, indeed.  But it’s just not the story of NWA.

The real story of NWA goes more like this…”During a period in the late 80’s when rap artists like  Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions were succeeding in getting a nation of millions to stop selling crack and to stop killing each other, out of nowhere a group of rappers came along and destroyed  the foundation that they were building and leaving as their  legacy the broken bodies and shattered dreams  of millions of black men and grieving mothers...

For those of us who  were fortunate enough to live through the Reagan/Bush Era, we know the truth. The problems facing African Americans in 2015, are no  different from the problems that we faced during the 80’s with police brutality, white on black violence,  black on black violence etc.  And just like during the 80’s, when black political awareness was rising here comes  NWA again to lower the intelligence bar and turn potential revolutionists into apolitical  thugs.

I must admit, the way the music  industry used NWA was wickedly, brilliant.  While Public Enemy was trying to save black lives, they created a group  to destroy them.  So NWA’s  two politically  aware songs served  only as a Trojan Horse to bring people into the real agenda, profitizing the destruction of the  black community.

Matter of fact, NWA did not even deny the nefarious plot to overthrow conscious Hip Hop with gangsta-ism .They bragged about it!
According to  Vibe magazine writer, Cheo Hodaria Coker, Dr. Dre even admitted that NWA was created to be an alternative to music that promoted black power. So. this was no accident.

No one is denying that F*** the Police set a new standard in articulating the frustrations of young black men who were constantly being harassed by the cops . But the problem is, if you take “F*** the Police (and the contradictory Express Yourself)  out of the equation , what are you left with?  You are stuck with two albums and one EP that glorified black death and misogyny and inspired rappers of subsequent generations to follow their lead. Just listen to  “She Swallowed it” off of their second album where the Pied Pipers of Pedifphellia rapped about the  sexual gang bang of a 14 year old girl and the other subject matter did not really differ from that formula.

Now, there are some who would argue that NWA was not  really a symbol of black genocide. But that’s just like saying  that the Confederate Flag was not  really a symbol of white racism.  So, we are clearly dealing with revisionist history.

Now, ultimately,  I don’t blame five black kids from the hood  for  hatching such a genocidal plot, I blame the music  industry and in this case Jerry Heller, who is credited as being one of the co-founders of NWA. In my opinion, Heller is a war criminal and should be charged with war crimes against the African American community.

In his autobiography, Ruthless, a Memoir, Heller even confesses that based on the historical conspiracies  by the “powers that be”  to exterminate black people, “ if these conspiracies are true...then Eazy E and I were just pawns of C.I.A machinations too vast to contemplate.”

Therefore, if Eazy, Dre,  Cube, Ren and Yella are  guilty of anything, it is the sacrifice of young black lives on the altar of  the Synagogue  of Satan for the reward of riches beyond  their wildest dreams.
So, no I won’t be watching Straight Outta Compton and if you care anything about the state of Black America, neither should you. We cannot allow history to repeat itself where the revolutionary spirit of black youth is channeled into self destructive behaviours and the “enemy” ultimately becomes other black men.
Instead of spending our money on Straight Outta Compton , we should be buying books to teach the youth  about The Black Panthers  and other revolutionists who really stood up against police brutality.
The blood of the thousands of young men who died over the last 25 years trying to be “N**** demands it !

Boycott NWA Movie

Accusing NWA of being responsible for the destruction of a generation of young African Americans, a NC minister is calling for a boycott of the new NWA biopic movie  “Straight Outta Compton”.

Although the movie is not scheduled to be released until August 14, Minister  Paul Scott founder  of the Durham NC based Messianic Afrikan Nation says that the trailers for the movie are exploiting the emotions and racial tensions created by the recent deaths of African Americans such as Mike Brown , Sandra Bland, Samuel Dubose and numerous others who died mysteriously after run ins with CWA (Cops With Attitude) by painting a  false narrative of the true history of the group.

According to Scott, the group’s “political” song “F*** the Police” was just a Trojan Horse that lured people into the real agenda of profitizing black death. And the group’s song “She Swallowed It” about the sexual  gang bang of a 14 year old girl is more indicative of NWA catalog.

Although he does not totally excuse the members of NWA, Scott says the majority of the blame goes to the music industry, including white co-founder Jerry Heller who Scott refers to as  a “war criminal who should be brought up on charges of war  crimes against the African American community for his role in our genocide.”

Scott says that the only thing that the five young black men from Compton are guilty of is “sacrificing the lives of millions of black youth on the altar of the Synagogue of Satan for the reward of blood money beyond their wildest dreams.”

Scott is urging people not to support the movie but instead use the money to buy books to teach the youth about The Black Panther Party and other revolutionists who truly fought against police brutality.

How About an Assata Monument?

North Carolina governor, Pat McCrory  recently upset a lot of folk when he signed the Historic Artifact and Patriotism Act. The act, basically, says that you can't remove that smiling statue of the old  KKK member down the street all willy-nilly. The removal will now require a thumbs up by the NC General Assembly.

But what really got my attention was the response of the Governor's Press Secretary Graham Wilson, who according to WTVD, dissed and dismissed the criticisms with " Our discussions should be centered around the addition of new monuments that will reflect the diversity of the individuals and events that shaped North Carolina."

This may come as a shock..But actually I agree with him.

Let's add some new monuments and give the old rusty Confederate statues some brand new neighbors.

I suggest that first on the guest list should be a few unsung African American heroes and heroines with ties to the Tar Heel state.

Let's start with David Walker who was born in Wilmington in 1785. His work "Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World" was so inflammatory that historians have suggested that it may have inspired Nat Turner's bloody  slave revolt of 1831.

Or what about Robert Williams  born in 1925 in Monroe North Carolina who wrote the book "Negroes With Guns"  and advocated armed self defense while many black folk were advocating nonviolence ?

And last but not least,  there is Assata Shakur who was born in New York but was raised in Wilmington. Shakur, former member of the Black Liberation Army was sentenced to prison in the early 70's in connection with the murder of a New Jersey State trooper. She is currently in exile in Cuba. I would love to see a statue of Assata Shakur holding an AK-47 smack dab in the middle of the NC State Capitol grounds.

Let's all contact Governor McCrory's office and tell him that we accept his office's challenge and we would like to see statues of Walker, Williams and Shakur erected immediately, in the heart of downtown Raleigh. It's gonna be kinda like a Black Power Mt. Rushmore.

So, yes, I agree with Graham Wilson, tell the Confederate statues to move over...

Guess who's coming to dinner ?

7/9 Debate with Sean Hannity and Rev. Jessie Lee Peterson

Fly the RBG Flag on the 4th

Whether African Americans should celebrate Independence Day, has been an ongoing debate in this country for decades. However, with the current racial turmoil in which this country finds herself, the debate has intensified. With this year's racial unrest in cities like Baltimore and the current controversy over the Confederate flag, a NC minister is calling on all Africans Americans to replace the Red, White and Blue with the Red, Black and Green.

Minister Paul Scott, founder of the Durham NC based Messianic Afrikan Nation ministry is asking that African Americans  adopt the Black Liberation flag as the official flag of African Americans this July 4th. The flag was originally created in 1920 by Marcus Garvey , founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association to be the official flag of all African people." At the time, Garvey's movement boasted a membership of two million people.

According to Scott, the campaign is not only to protest the injustices against African Americans but to call for black unity which he hopes will stop the black on black violence that is so prevalent in Durham and many cities around the country.

Already hundreds of African American Facebook users are changing their profile pics to Black Liberation flag colors to protest injustice and call for black unity.

As Marcus Garvey said in 1921,

“Show me the race or the nation without a flag, and I will show you a race of people without any pride.

Papa's Got a Brand New Flag...

Papa's Got a Brand New Flag:
Why African Americans Need a New Symbol of Freedom

                                             Min. Paul Scott

Today, the governor of South Carolina , Nikki Haley called for the removal of the Confederate flag from the  SC State Capital. And that's  a good thing. Personally, I believe that anything even resembling a Confederate flag needs to be used for toilet paper at Taco Bell...

For many white Southerners , the Confederate  flag represents the heritage of their ancestors, but for me it represents the last thing my ancestors saw before they were hanged from trees in the South Carolina swamps.

Now, I know people in SC are having victory cookouts right now and having "We Shall Over Come" karaoke concerts  But , don't expect me to be overly, over joyed with the symbolic gesture of removing the Confederate rag.

To be historically correct, just as much injustice was done to African Americans under the Stars and Stripes as was done under the Stars and Bars. Matter of fact, even today, in the cities where many of the racist acts are happening,  Old Glory is waving proudly.  And the police officers who are committing terrible acts of violence  against black kids aren't pledging allegiance to the Confederate flag, they are pledging allegiance to the Red, White and Blue.

As black people we  need our own flag to represent our heritage.   Matter of fact we already have one. 

According to the late historian, Dr. Tony Martin in his work, Race First, in 1920 The Honorable Marcus Garvey , in his Declaration of Rights of the Negro Peoples of the World  adopted  the  Red Black and Green flag as the official symbol of the "African race."   According to Dr, Martin, Red stands for "the color of the blood which men must shed for their redemption and liberty."  Black for "the color of the noble and distinguished race to which we belong." And Green "for the luxuriant vegetation of our Motherland."  Marcus Garvey was the leader of the UNIA (Universal Negro Improvement Association) which, at its height boasted two million members. 

So, in 2015  its time for black people to start waving our own flags again.

On July 4th, African Americans should once again adopt the Red, Black and Green Flag as our official symbol. There should be Red, Black and Green flags on black households, clothing and license plates from McKinney TX, to Baltimore MD, to Charleston SC.

Back in the , 60's James Brown had a hit song with "Papa's  Got a Brand New Bag," however today we are saying "Papa's Got a Brand new Flag."

If we really want to stop, not only racism and police brutality but also our children from killing each other in the street,  we have to give them something to be proud of.

As Marcus Garvey once said,

Show me the race or the nation without a flag, and I will show you a race of people without any pride.

Is Right Wing Media to Blame for Charleston Massacre ?

Originally published 8/8/10

Haters for Hire:
Understanding Racism for Ratings

Min. Paul Scott

It all started when, while standing in the checkout line at Community Foods Supermarket, Mike White told a joke that he heard on the local right wing radio morning show. However, Rasheed Blackmon, who was in line behind him was not amused. The simple off-color joke led to a racial slug-fest, as customers throughout the store began clubbing each other with frozen pizzas and boxes of Twinkies.The radio station finally got what they had been pushing for; a race riot on aisle five of the local grocery store...

Since the last presidential election, there has been a growing interest in right wing shock jocks with new ones springing up like weeds everyday in markets across the country. Whether it be Clear Channel's Rush Radio affiliates or Fox News, the line between journalism and entertainment has been permanently blurred. What is passing for examples of intelligent racial discourse are merely cheap one-liners and the conservative equivalent of "yo' mama" jokes.

Racism for ratings has become the order of the day and stations are scrambling to hire their own stable of hired haters.

What is ironic is that I doubt very seriously that most of the pundits who spew the racist rhetoric actually feel that way when they are off the clock nor will they be able to defend their positions in public debates. They subscribe to the old saying, "I'm not a racist; I just play one on TV." For them the profits of racial rage are strictly business, nothing personal.

Unfortunately, if you follow the right wing rhetoric to its logical conclusion, eventually some one's gonna get hurt and it's not going to be one of the media moguls in an office building in downtown Manhattan nor one of the local haters-for-hire hidden away in a DJ booth in some undisclosed location, it's going to be one of your friends or neighbors. After the racial Apocalypse, the head honchos at corporate will just put the racial rebel rousers in their Clear Channel Radio Host Protection Program, change their identities and ship them off to some unsuspecting town in Idaho where they will start the same mayhem over again, while leaving their former city of employment in shambles.

While many will be quick to blame the messenger, it must be noted that as early as the 18th century, Thomas Jefferson warned that if America did not get its collective act together in terms of race relations, according to Bradford Chambers in his book "Chronicles of Black Protests," he foresaw a race war and the "extermination of the one or the other race."

You have folks on both sides of the political gulf that take what they hear on Fox News and conservative radio as the Gospel, a reflection of how the average white American feels about people of color. However, just as the Hip Hop videos on Black Entertainment Television do not reflect the lifestyle choices of all African Americans, neither does Fox News reflect the racial attitudes of all whites.

According to WEB Dubois in his book, "Black Reconstruction in America, " in 1860 only 7% of the total population of the South owned nearly three million of the 3,953,676 slaves. These were the members of the "planter class" who controlled the politics and economics of the southern states. Dubois wrote that the propagation of the doctrine of black inferiority was based on the interests of this planter class by which the majority of the population (poor whites) were manipulated. In modern society, the planter class would be the media moguls and their prophets of rage, while the poor whites would be the majority of their listeners.

One of the reasons why this trend continues is that most Americans have a very lackadaisical attitude when it comes to historical research. It is easier to listen to some bigot on the radio and just parrot right wing talking points than it is to engage in a critical analysis of the race problem. Plus, it's more entertaining to watch Glenn Beck go off one one of his tirades than it is to sit down and read a book. Let's face it, the Right's theater of the absurd sells out every night.

Also, we live in an area where the local newspapers would rather pretend that by ignoring racial issues they will eventually disappear. Racial issues will not make the morning paper until two days after blood is flowing waist high in the streets,evidence of the old adage "if it bleeds, it leads."

Nationally, this has been a long hot summer in regards to the topic of race in America and with the upcoming mid-term elections, you can bet that the heat of the summer will bleed into the fall.

While the media gatekeepers are cashing in on the racial hatred, folks like you and I are just pawns in the game.
