www.bittermedicineblogs.com – We discuss the recent white nationalist (alt-right) protest at the University of Virginia (Charlottesville) over the decision to remove a statue of Confederate, General Robert E. Lee, from a downtown park. But its more than just the removal of a statue! It’s also about white identity and advocating whiteness.
The alt-right are white supremacists that go beyond basic conservativism (i.e. the tradition of whiteness). The alt-right are essentially the media and propaganda arm of white racism and white supremacists thought. They comprise of young, white, college educated males. Its most notable members are Steve Bannon, a Trump advisor and strategist; and Richard B. Spencer, president of National Policy Institute, a white nationalist think tank.
We breakdown a past speech of Richard B. Sherman’s and reveal our admiration for his outlook. Our admiration is like the admiration the Hon. Marcus Garvey held for Mussolini and Hitler who each pushed a brand of nationalist leadership in their respective countries. Nationalism restores nations pride and Garvey felt that Blacks could use a dose of this to rehabilitate themselves and Africa.
We also read the Hon. Marcus Garvey’s essay, “African Fundamentalism”, written almost 100 years ago yet still rings true for the Black community now. Taken together with the alt-rights ideology (and flipping it) of identity above all else, recognizing our greatness, and seeing fairness as a losers’ mentality, we advocate fighting fire with fire and establishing an ALT-BLACK movement.
Most Black folks prefer to play along to get along; sing kumbaya, and have their head in the clouds as opposed to being unapologetically Black and savage in our endeavor for liberation.
These and other topics are discussed. Listen to find out more!
