Colonialism is the extension of a nation's sovereignty over territory beyond its borders by the establishment of either settler colonies or administrative dependencies in which indigenous populations are directly ruled or displaced. Colonizers generally dominate the resources, labor, and markets of the colonial territory and may also impose socio-cultural, religious and linguistic structures on the conquered population (see also cultural imperialism). However, though colonialism is often used interchangeably with imperialism, the latter is sometimes used more broadly as it covers control exercised informally (via influence) as well as formally. The term colonialism may also be used to refer to a set of beliefs used to legitimize or promote this system. Colonialism was often based on the belief that the mores and values of the colonizer were superior to those of the colonized. (This can also be called ethnocentricism). Some observers link such beliefs regarding values to racism, and to pseudo-scientific theories dating to the 17th and 18th centuries. In terms of race, this led to a sort of proto-Social Darwinism that placed Caucasians at the top of the Animal Kingdom, "naturally" in charge of dominating and civilizing non-European indigenous populations. In terms of values, this led to cultural hegemony, chauvinistic jingoism, missionary zealotry and blindly patriotic nationalism in the colonies, especially among the colonizers READ

STACY DASH- This is not the body of a 40 year old woman. I can only pray that I am lucky enough to marry a girl that ages like her. I saw Marquis Houston’s new video and decided to post something about the way Stacy Dash doesn't seem to age. When I went looking for photos of her I found out she posed for Playboy this year. Whoa! her body is amazing. This might be a warped assumption but I think she has some enchanted servant snatching pretty young girls and draining the youth out of them. I think if we broke the spell all the young- old looking white chicks will magically get their youth back. (p.s. check her out in Playboy –Aug.2006- Oh Boy!) (BUY)(BUY)(BUY)

TYRESE-OH MY GOD! I just had to post about this. Tyrese putting out a double CD titled “ALTER EGO”. Baby boy is planning to attempt to do a rap album. One disk of his double CD is dedicated to his alter ego Black Ty, who has rapping abilities few have been aware of. If it sounds anything like that rap he spit on his first single “NOBODY ELSE” watch out! What the hell is going on? everybody wants to be a thug. This dude went from a Coke and a smile, singing “SWEET LADY” to being a Thugged out rapper over night. I guess he had to figure out a way to capitalize off the hood fame he acquired through “BABY BOY” and “THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS 2” movies. I can hear his publicist now. “The singing thing isn’t working for you; Rap, yeah rap is where it’s at for you Ty. Rap is in, it’s in and it’s big. You’ve got to get a piece of this. We’re going to create an alter ego for you. We’ll call him Black Ty, yeah that’s it, genius baby, pure genius.” What’s worse is that on his Mix tape you’ve got S&S and KAY SLAY cosigning this dude like he’s really hot. I think Mickey Mouse could start rapping tomorrow and there would be industry heads to cosign him for the right price.(SELL)
For anyone that curious enough to want to down load his mixtape here’s the link

P DIDDY- “COME TO ME” This dude and his dance move’s, the little scene with him in the doorway remind me of Paula Abdul’s “STRAIGHT UP” video. I could have sworn I saw some of those move’s in an old John Travolta movie, I think it was a joint from the middle of his career because he was fat. Why does Puff sound like his mouth is mad heavy on this joint? I can’t front though the song is mad catchy, that “do it, do it, do it, do it,” shit has been stuck in my head for days. (SELL)

HEATHER HEADLY- IN MY MIND- This chick really gets me. Interracial dating is cool with me, but this broad. She made that record “He is” which was supposed to be a record uplifting black men. She stay having black men in her videos on some “I love my brothers” type ish and married a white boy in real life. Maybe she’s just giving black male artists a taste of their own medicine. I might be bugging, but why is she cheesing in the video? Isn’t it supposed to be a song about longing? Something about her just rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it’s that oversized Lemon she has for a head. (SELL)

RUBEN STUDDARD- CHANGE ME- When I first heard it I thought it sucked, and now that I’ve gotten the opportunity to really listen to it…..I still think it sucks. Funny thing is though, I get what he’s trying to say with this record. I feel that much. He on some ‘you got so much to say about me, what if I start talking about all the stuff that’s wrong with you?’- Say ahh, like how your breath smell in the morning- like you’ve been drinking toilet bowl water after somebody hit it with a number 2.

The Island
If anyone has ever wondered about the possibilities of Stem Cell research I’d advise you to see this movie. Imagine a world where you could have yourself cloned for the specific purpose of providing you with vital organs as an insurance policy! You need a bone marrow no need searching for donors they’ll just take it from your clone; you need a new Kidney, a new heart, anything. I was watching Television with my very picky and neurotic girlfriend, who probably sat through the film because it fed into her paranoia about government conspiracies. You know microchips in human body’s type of stuff, when I came across this film.

They had this facility full of people you would assume were regular humans. As it would turn out they were basically a colony of clones purchased as insurance policies by celebrities. When they created the clones they’d feed images into their brains electronically to make them think they had a memory of a past. In the facility they’d put them through rigorous work outs to keep their organs in tip top shape. They had a scene where one of them pisses in the toilet and the toilet tells him he has too much sodium in his system and he gets put on a diet.

Of course it was a corrupt corporation behind it all. The CEO of the company had the clones believing they were regular humans and that they couldn’t go outside because disease had plagued society and killed off humanity. They had them believing the world outside of the city was one filled with pestilence and disease. The facility where they were housed was claimed to be the only quarantined and disease free place left on Earth (with the exception of the Island). The Island was a place the company created to prevent the clones from becoming suspicious of the disappearance of other clones they had befriended. The company had created a lottery system where the winner, a.k.a the next clone to have a vital organ removed and be murdered, would get to go to the Island, which is supposed to be the only disease free paradise left on Earth.. I found this crazy the clones that won would be ecstatic and celebrating none the wiser unsuspecting of their preeminent doom.
The company had the people that were purchasing the clones as insurance policies believe the clones were in a veggie state and didn’t talk, walk or engage in any human activity, which was a lie, but hey they couldn’t have the policy holders feeling guilty about what was going on now could they. Well as luck would have it, one of the clones finds himself at the wrong place at the right time and sees something he shouldn’t but needs to see. He escapes the facility and all sorts of high speed chases and action scenes ensue. After it’s all said and done the whole thing is exposed and the movie ends, well not quite it’s a bit more to it than that but you get the picture. It was good movie over all; at least I liked it anyway. My girlfriend seemed like she pretty much enjoyed it also or maybe it was just the possibility of that whole cloning thing that had us captivated. Anyway I advise anyone curious about the future of Stem cell research or Cloning to check this movie.

What's this really about? Does Freddy Fox really have a problem with Rakim or is this just a ploy for attention? In my opinion this is what's killing East coast rap. Rappers on the East coast need to stop focusing on beefing and turn their attention back to making good music. I do have to admit though that Freddy Fox's rants do seem to be valid. If you’re interested in what Freddy Fox has to say about it you can check the article on

THE 13TH AMENDMENT CONDONING SLAVERY! and you thought it was over......

This a repost. I posted this a while back but I decided to add two more parts to this post. I want to explain the true importance of this Amendment and the threat that it poses to the Brown skinned community. Be sure to check back for part 2 & 3


M Amendment 13th

Section 1. Neither Slavery, nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
(Ratified December 6, 1865)

To many, the 13th Amendment is recognized as an act of liberation for blacks in America. Being passed to outlaw slavery in the period following the Civil War, which many consider a war fought to end slavery. The 13th Amendment has long been celebrated as a positive footnote in African American History. Few have paid enough attention to notice the negative aspects of the Amendment; Negative aspects which provide a loophole that could lead to the re-enslavement of Blacks in America. I’ll highlight the areas of concern as I overview the amendment. Neither Slavery, nor involuntary servitude, EXCEPT AS A PUNISHMENT FOR CRIME WHERE OF THE PARTY SHALL HAVE BEEN DULY CONVICTED, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. CONGRESS SHALL HAVE POWER TO ENFORCE THIS ARTICLE BY APPROPRIATE LEGISLATION. I look at the part that states (Except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted) which basically means that slavery is legal as a means of punishment of convicted criminals. Now, many may perceive themselves to be safe from this law as a result of what they’ve come to associate with being a criminal and crime. This is where I take the time to enlighten those that do to the true definition of crime and criminal.

Crime – 1. Illegal act: an action prohibited by law or a failure to act as required by law, 2. Illegal activity: activity that involves breaking the law.

Criminal- 1. Someone acting illegally: someone who has committed a crime

Many have come to view the term crime as a representation of major criminal acts and the term misdemeanor as a separate entity representing minor offenses to the law, not recognizing the fact that any violation of the law is recognized as a crime and any person that violates the law can be deemed a criminal. My reason for concern with the 13th Amendment is the fact that it provides a legal loophole for slavery and is unspecific in its terms of what leaves an individual susceptible to the punishment that can be inflicted through its use within the judicial system. Now, Crime is a pretty general term that can be used to represent anything from J walking to bank robbery, Imagine being enslaved for loitering, littering, j-walking, disorderly conduct, or speeding; then imagine it being perfectly legal.
The reasons that I have for being concerned with this law and its danger to the black community are as follows: Racial profiling of African Americans, rising incarceration rates for African Americans, the rate in which blacks are being arrested and targeted by law enforcement officials, and the promotion of individuals from predominantly black poverty stricken neighborhoods as criminals. The statistical fact that an African American individual is five times more likely to be convicted than a Caucasian on trial for the same offense implies that we do have somewhat of an unfair judicial system. Having an amendment that states that an individual can be legally enslaved as a means of punishment for a violation of the law, with African Americans being dominant in arrest and convictions is something that I find extremely alarming. The tendency of people to be unsympathetic towards the punishment of criminals, creates an opportunity for this amendment to lead to the re-enslavement of African Americans, as people will view it as nothing more than a criminal being punished for a crime committed. Many fail to view court appointed community service as a form of slavery for the reason I just stated, when it is a modern form of slavery. The only difference between slavery through community service and the slavery that was experienced by Africans in the history books is that rather than picking cotton we’re cleaning city parks and scraping graffiti off of subway walls, but it’s still forced labor. Maybe my concerns are invalid, for the fact that if you don’t commit a crime your not susceptible to the amendment, but you take a look at what can be defined as a crime and tell me that in all cases slavery would be fair punishment. Now, I could be a conspiracy theorist, I could be just another black man trying to exempt myself of accountability of my actions, and maybe all this could just be paranoia, but to quote the basketball player Charles Barkley when he said “, I may be wrong, but I doubt it”
