Jennifer Parker: Dr. Brown, I brought this note back from the future and now it's erased.
Doc: Of course it's erased.
Jennifer Parker: But what does that mean?
Doc: It means your future hasn't been written yet. No one's has. Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one, both of you.
Marty McFly: [Marty wraps his arm around Jennifer] We will, Doc.
SWPL whites are status-seeking whites that have never met a Black cause or benefit they didn’t fall head over heels in love with and support, since they epitomize Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) to the letter.
Untouchable whites are those white people who reside in states that SWPL whites pour scorn upon, and who face uphill battles in garnering an elite education because of their degraded status.
They live in states that have white populations that are increasingly aware of the apparatus known as BRA that has been constructed by the government, corporate and educational sectors to promote Black people above their station at the expense of all others.
State Supreme Court justices Richard Sanders and James Johnson stunned some participants at a recent court meeting when they said African Americans are overrepresented in the prison population because they commit a disproportionate number of crimes.
Both justices disputed the view held by some that racial discrimination plays a significant role in the disparity.
Johnson also used the term "poverty pimp," an apparent reference to people who purportedly exploit the poor in the legal system, say those who attended the meeting.
Sanders later confirmed his remarks about imprisoned African Americans, saying "certain minority groups" are "disproportionally represented in prison because they have a crime problem."
"That's right," he told The Seattle Times this week. "I think that's obvious."
Johnson did not respond to several messages left Wednesday and Thursday with three staffers in Olympia. He also did not respond to messages left Thursday at his home and with Sanders. Johnson's staff said he was with the court in Spokane to hear cases at the Gonzaga University law school.
African Americans represent about 4 percent of Washington's population but nearly 20 percent of the state prison population. Similar disparities nationwide have been attributed by some researchers to sentencing practices, inadequate legal representation, drug-enforcement policies and criminal-enforcement procedures that unfairly affect African Americans.
Lost in the excitement of Back to the Future's 25th reunion is the spread in Entertainment Weekly reuniting those Black actors who played in the TV mini-series Roots:
“There’s a line that goes through the Civil Rights movement, through Roots in [the] 1970s, to Barack Obama being elected,” LeVar Burton notes as he and Roots co-stars Ben Vereen and Louis Gossett Jr. reminisce about their days playing Kunta Kinte, Chicken George, and Fiddler. Thirty-three years after the miniseries first appeared on ABC (85 percent of the population tuned in for at least part of it, with the finale drawing 100 million viewers), a lot has changed in the country and the culture.Roots mesmerized an entire nation, washing viewers in buckets of white guilt as it took everyone back to the past of black enslavement. Roots became the ultimate device for inducing white guilt and enabling the continued construction of Black Run America, for white people would bear the eternal mark of sin for their insidious actions toward Black people.
But, as Vereen points out in the embedded video below, filmed at EW’s Reunion 2010 shoot in Los Angeles earlier this month, not even Roots was able to enlighten everybody. He remembers what happened when co-star Madge Sinclair (nominated for an Emmy for playing Belle) approached one of the networks with a post-Roots project. “She was told they had done their quota for the African-American community,” he says.
One problem: Roots is just as fictional as Back to the Future, no matter what Kunta Kinte may have said:
MANY things resurrect themselves, some great, some not.
The case against Alex Haley who became a millionaire and a celebrity through the profits made from his novel "Roots" and its offshoots is growing at such speed that we may someday come to understand just who this extraordinarily dishonest man actually was.
The investigative reporter Philip Nobile pinned Haley's reputation to the wall in a Village Voice article he did in 1993 about what he calls "the greatest literary hoax of the century." Nobile has been attacked for kicking mud on the reputation of a man who did so much for Negro America by showing that it was possible to find one's way all the distance back to Africa.
But all those who hate Nobile are talking out of their necks. The new BBC documentary "The Roots of Alex Haley" proves that they have something else on their minds besides the truth. Haley is still revered, and the support system for his work continues to perpetuate an enormous fraud on the public. That fraud and its spin-offs are so lucrative that the den of thieves that rises from the golden garbage cans of publishing, TV, tourism and the academy are threatened by this documentary, which has yet to find an outlet here. I wonder why.
Like the Tawana Brawley hoax, the story of just what Haley brought off is an example of how history and tragic fact can be pillaged by an individual willing to exploit whatever the naive might consider sacred. Haley arrived on the scene when Negroes were becoming obsessed with their African ancestry and were having overwrought reactions to a tale of slavery that always, conveniently, left out the crucial role of the cooperative and profiting Africans.
Haley stole from a white man's novel, Harold Courlander's "The African" and, says black writer Margaret Walker, from her own "Jubilee." Only a year after Haley had become a literary star, he was sued by Courlander and settled after a five-week trial for $650,000.
Judge Robert Ward, who presided over the case, says in the documentary: "Alex Haley perpetrated a hoax on the public." But with prototypical Caucasian paternalism, he tells the camera: "I encouraged a settlement because I believed that Alex Haley was a significant figure in the black community. I believe that Haley was a symbol. I believe that it would not serve any purpose to smash the symbol."
In other words: If those darkies are happy with their African heritage hoax, let them have it. They're children anyway. The truth would overwhelm them, poor things.
Since "Roots," hundreds of thousands of Negro Americans have traveled back to Africa, creating quite a tourist industry. It's one the Gambian government seems to have foreseen when it supplied Haley with an interpreter to help him patch together the lie of tracing his family back to the African village of Juffure.
In the BBC documentary, one expert after another shows just how much Americans were hoodwinked by this man. We find out that Haley admits to having had extensive passages written by his editor, Murray Fisher.
Lisa Drew, another Doubleday editor, saw the big money coming and put "Roots" on the nonfiction list although it was obviously a novel. Presenting herself as a friend of the Negro, she offers the absurd defense that she didn't want bigots to dismiss the tale as a lie. Well, the whole thing is a lie, one that looms so large the Pulitzer Prize committee refuses to consider withdrawing the special prize Haley received. You got to watch those paternalists.
The future is what we make of it.
Stuff Black People Don't Like will return to normal posts tomorrow (and the cross-posting will continue at the new Web site SBPDL.net / SBPDL.wordpress.com.
But it must stated, unequivocally, that there is nothing more vile than a SWPL white person. The people of Washington deserve better then to have these vermin bemoan the sagacious reasoning of two members of the state Supreme Court when it comes to crime and Black people.
Roots has sprouted in the minds of SWPL white people, turning them into DWLs incapable of living in the real world, though they strangely self-segregate far away from Black people.
To get Back to the Future that America once had, BRA must be dismantled, and only Untouchable white people can make that happen.
But is America worth saving at this point? Is the infection of BRA to deep to excise?
