      I could be wrong, but I believe that the ‘first’ poster has accurately, described/articulated ‘our’ present ‘condition’, here in “Post-Racial” amerikkka. nuf said.

    Very very powerful testimony by Michael Eric Dyson; but he’s preaching to the choir. The ones who need to hear this information; the ones who are in charge of policy change; are not present. This is information that the black community knows without having to present statistics. We know this because we live this everyday. Everything that Brother Dyson has said is absolutely true. But what is going to be done about it. This is not new information. He poetically articulated with painter’s brush the plight of the black community; but my question is; what now?

    • msperc

      I hear u, but don’t assume all Blacks are “In Tune” to this information as HE presents it. Thus it needs to be discussed & understood!

      We have to accept that white society has an agenda to keep us down and learn to use their system against them. They want to categorize us as unintelligent and inabilities to learn, use that nonsense against them and wear those stereotypes as badges when it comes to applying for college. The ADHD, ADD and other stigmas they label our children makes our children eligble for various scholarships and grants for education. We are so quick to give white society to break our confidence and weaken us rather than use their evil intentions against them and in our favor. We do the same on our jobs, I have a performance issue, show me how my performance is an issue in the policies and procedures so I may improve and ensure it doesn’t happen again. Stop buying into the bullshit, know your job, know the policies and procedures, ask to see the Standard Operating Procedure SOP or SOG) they say you’re not living up to, AND DOCUMENT on your personnel record as they do!

    • Tomi

      Trust me the ones who are in charge of policy change heard it. They need to hear it whether they’re there or not. Did you hear about the guy that was murdered for leading the “Black Lives Matter?” They have to know that they cannot kill their way through this but have a dialogue. To me, he delivered a great speech.

    DO YOUR RESEARCH, JESUS ONLY CAME FOR THE BLACKS, HISPANICS & NATIVE INDIANS, THEY ARE THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN BE SAVE WHEN CHRIST RETURNS. EVERYONE ELSE IS GOING TO SLAVERY.. The churches have lied to you, Especially to Black People. To all you so called White People, You are RED & NOT WHITE. #God did not give you any melanin to fight from the sun because you are cursed & actually hate every single one of you. He made the black man stronger and he even gave us a Bigger DICK, Which prove we are more of a man than you Cave dwelling neanderthals Lmao. Look up the word Caucasian, it means Cave Dweller from the caucus mountain of mount #Russia, Lmao

    Listen If you are not #Black, #Hispanics or #NativeIndians and came from the decedent of the 12 sons of #Jacob which are the #TrueHebrew #Israelite #Jews then you are going to #Slavery when #Jesus #Christ returns and we will walk you like the dog that you really are. CAN’T WAIT.

    Your kingdom is falling and God says that esau which is you, That your seed is spoiled, meaning nothing you do is going to be good and everyone and every nation will then start hating you.

    How can #Jesus was a black man and a #Hebrew Jew from the tribe of Judah and now are you telling me that the new #Jewissssssh people are white #GTFOH while giving the world a so called white Jesus.. You are a bunch of imposters and #God is waking up his people as the true #Israelites. #Lmao now if you are a jew then where are the rest of your 11 tribes.

    Your kingdom is over, so you white devils can stop lying, slavery & chains is what is in your future. The jigs is up, lmao

    Hebrews 7:14 (KJV)
    For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.

    Jeremiah 14:2 (KJV)
    Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.

    Romans 9:13 (KJV)
    As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.

    Jeremiah 49:10 (KJV)
    But I have made Esau bare, I have uncovered his secret places, and he shall not be able to hide himself: his seed is spoiled, and his brethren, and his neighbours, and he is not.

    Exodus 21:16 (KJV)
    And he that stealeth a man, and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death.

    Isaiah 14:21 (KJV)
    Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

    Revelation 13:10 (KJV)
    He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

    Isaiah 14:1-2 (KJV)
    For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

    And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the Lord for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

    That is when we the real Jews will truly have real freedom, All the damm #Gentile on earth especially that damm so called #Whiteman which are really the #REDdevil on earth that the #Bible talks about which mean #TheDEviever.

      First of all you can be green, red, black or blue it doesn’t matter. Unless you be born again you won’t be seeing who you call JC. Stop telling those lies…you will be held accountable for them. The word says that God so loved the world. If you read that bible that you speak of you would know that Yahweh or Father God doesn’t look at the outside…he only searches the heart. You can be black as night but if your heart isn’t right you’ll be with your father THE DEVIL!

  • Mrs. D.

    This is a wonderful sermon… But, why was it not delivered to the sinners? And then, I wonder… I wonder if it was preached, amplified, from the rooftops and every available corner in Washington DC, if it would ever become as serious and as much a matter of life and death to the potentates of the hallowed congressional halls as it is to those relegated to the view from the overflow and from balcony seats?

    I recently had a stunning realization… I realize that the racism which is a standard and hallmark of American society came over on the ships of those fleeing so-called religious oppression. It came to these shores and terrorized and brutalized people of color, and then by continued, unbridled terror and brutality, perpetrated itself through African slavery and westward expansion. I realized that AMERICA was built, not just on the backs of my ancestors, but by way of the ships and wagon wheels of American racism. Perhaps, had some brave souls other than John Brown and others, stood up, en mass, and called those sinners to repent, we may have had an ear to listen to the cries of racial injustice, today… for surely, it would not be as pervasive as it currently is. But, we had no substantial representation… no one mass of organized, legal white voices to speak up and call to a stop the demonic flow of racist ideology across the country. It has been slightly debated, it even fueled and won a Civil War, but it has NEVER effectively ended the racist terror and brutality which is now inherently American.
    Consequently, we have none in the hallowed houses of legislation and Constitution, TO THIS DAY, to call the current masses into to repentance. And so, we just keep witnessing Trayvon after Trayvon after Trayvon being crucified, but no sincere, effective response to his blood being shed. We already know that he died for us… But, still, the sin continues.

    • Csmith

      ^ Very sad, this way of thinking

  • In the United States the term “black people” is NOT an indicator of SKIN COLOR or ETHNIC ORIGIN but is instead a socially based racial classification related to being African American, with a family history associated with INSTITUTIONALIZED SLAVERY! Institutionalized slavery, meaning: that even though slaves were free, they still had the mindset of being slaves, and didn’t know how not to be! The term black was used throughout, but not frequently since IT CARRIED A CERTAIN STIGMA. In his 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech, Martin Luther King, Jr. uses the terms negro fifteen times and black ONLY four times. Each time he uses black it is in parallel construction with white; for example, “black men and white men”! BLACK PEOPLE is a term used in certain countries, often in socially based systems of racial classification or of ethnicity, to describe persons who are perceived to be dark-skinned compared to other given populations. As such, the meaning of the expression varies widely both between and within societies, and depends significantly on context. For many other individuals, communities and countries, “black” is also perceived as a derogatory, outdated, reductive or otherwise unrepresentative label, and as a result is NEITHER USED NOR DEFINED. In South Africa and Latin America, mixed-race people are generally not classified as “black”! #IamNotBlackIAmAFRIKAN https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=r0wVBQAAQBAJ

            Nice try, Jeb! My parents were married from 1954-1997. They passed away in 1997. I’ll let you do the math. If you knew who your father was, you’d have more of a sense of manhood. Your single mom couldn’t impart those lessons in manhood on you, so you grew up to be exactly what you are — a pathetic, unemployed white coward who sits behind a keyboard and fake avatar.

  • emeraldeyes24

    WHERE are all the white people? [Oh, wait, I saw one white woman sitting with the Representatives at the front] The good doctor doesn’t need to eloquently speak to the black men in his presence about the racism, suspicion, and irrational attitudes of white cops, and many citizens. They KNOW of which he speaks. On the other hand the white community needs to hear it, need to feel the fear that the mothers of black sons feel, the frustration that black men feel that yet another generation of black sons are being beaten and criminalized.

  • Robert Cantu

    This speech, this powerful and true full speech, just makes me say. I’m so proud I’m not black. Lol!!! It must suck being black. Everything he’s saying it true and I’m so happy I never experienced 1% of what black people experience.

    Mr. Dyson spoke the truth and we as a people owe it to our children to fight for a better way for them to live. They aren’t building prisons for the other children, they’re building them for our, because it’s a business for them. Profit and Margin.

        Us black folks are too cowardly for something like that. We’d rather march, hold hands and wear t-shirts. We rebel, but never revolt. Revolution leads to change. Rebellion leads back to business as usual.

    Mr. Dyson is a liar…..he is dressing up the truth. In every dynamics white is going to have more because they have 7 times more people than black.

    This is bullshit grandstanding that is helping no one. Black family is fractured and only black people can fix it, especially black men. They need to take responsibility for their actions and take care of their children and keep them off the street.

    President Obama knows very little about black Americans and their problems. He grew up in Jakarta and Hawaii where his grandparents raised him. His grandmother was the Vice President of a Bank ….he wasn’t raised black.
