an amazing book i need to recommend - Ace of Spades by David Matthews
this is my first posting. hello! my name is sarah, and i'm half black half jewish. my mother is jewish.

A friend of mine recommended a book called 'Ace of Spades' by David Matthews (you can find it here: http://tr.im/iGsu), and I love it so much. I'm half way through it and I can't believe how great this book is. It's so funny and personable. There are moments where I have to put the book down and just burst out laughing. But wow, is it well written! David Matthews is poetic with his words. Truly astounding.

Here's a brief description from The New Yorker:
The son of a Zionist white mother and a Malcolm X-admiring black father, Matthews, in this memoir, is a boy without a race in a city, Baltimore, that requires him to choose one. The story of racial pinball is not entirely unfamiliar: the black kids reject him as too light-skinned, the whites as too broad-nosed. But Matthews displays improvisational verve—blacks are "burnished" and "browned butter," and whites are anything from "alabaster" to "a puffy marshmallow in Baltimore’s steaming cup of cocoa"—and narrates with the vigor of a movie script. Indeed, it is on television that, as a child, he finds the clarity he yearns for. "I was a living contradiction of elements that shouldn’t have been," he writes at one point, whereas on TV "everything was black, or white, and a lot like life."

Really, i can't recommend this book more! I love it! Have you read it?

Не поддавайтесь провокации!
Уважаемые блогеры!

Некоторое время назад в интернете появился трейлер фильма “Ихтиандр. Начало”.

К сожалению, самого фильма не существует, и съёмки его не планируются!

Трейлер нарезан “поклонниками” из рабочего материала нашего клипа, который действительно снял Виктор Вилкс. Это было сделано без нашего ведома и без ведома Вилкса.

Пожалуйста, в случае, если вы размещали трейлер несуществующего фильма у себя в блоге, на сайте, либо на внешних видеосерверах, удалите его и информацию о нем или сообщите нам.

Трейлер крайне непрофессионального качества, что не очень приятно.
Надеемся на ваше понимание и содействие.

the only non-racist (or so it seems...where are the rest of you hiding?) in the group

hi, everyone (that is, if this group isn’t completely dead yet).

 

here are some of my posts and i’d like to know what y’all think (excuse my lack of capitalization and whatever else):

 

1.

 

subject: you think the only people who are people are the people who look and think like you.

Message: idk where i stand w/ illegals...well, i am a big portion native american, maybe i do. *ahem* =/ so...*sigh*. i'd rather not continue.

but honestly...okay, i hate it when people break the law, BUT they have such a good reason to! :( so...um, what did y'all think about the immigration issue w/ europe? do tell. i'd like to hear. not to be a snob, or anything. LOL. :|

i'm happy they brought over Christianity. which is my life, well, soon to be, anyways...BUT they didn't need to be so BRUTAL about it. the majority were hypocrites (what men intended for evil, God meant for good…that goes for slavery as well, but i’m not getting into that!). idk. if i had a secular life, i'd love to have lived like my native american ancestors. but, then i wouldnt be Christian. but i'm just saying IF i weren't Christian. and maybe there could’ve been missionaries who converted us, but didnt take over our land…<i>Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest; come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth; come roll in all the riches all around you and, for once, never wonder what they're worth.</i> well, i’m not complaining. what’s done is done.

i dont hate anyone who hates Mexicans or others for whatever reason (i used to be semi-racist to blacks…i’m working on it). i've come to realize that we're all victims of our demons. but...in the end, you'll be taking responsibility for your actions, of which you have the choice to choose, on your own. =/

 

<b>this whole immigration issue is, in fact, and shamefully, a <u>RACE</u> issue.</b> as i said, i wont hold it against anyone. i hope y'all hear me out and understand where i'm coming from. *sigh* and don't try to deny it. anyone can see through it. and what’s even lamer is that so many racist white americans themselves have native american (not to mention black) in them. dna tests should be mandatory; i bet there’d be less racism. or maybe it will be proven one day that adam and eve were black. hopefully. the world would be a better place. there is no such thing as a pureblood, especially american ones. it’s all up to whoever finds the proof.

 

2.

 

message: i think the native american way of living is much more superior than “western”, and any other, culture. i sometimes wish y'all had just left us alone.

(question: are the majority of people on this community racist? i feel so out of place! but race is an interesting issue, and i guess i dont mind sharing it with the likes of y'all...and yes, y'all are racist. i'm not even going to begin!).

Evolutionary psychology of fundamental intent
The following webpage describes the contrasting evolutionary psychological origins of different types of fundamental intent. It describes the effect of climates and other environmental traits, the secondary effects that result from different gender ratios, specific beliefs and ideals that stem from such evolved fundamental intent, and specific geographical areas and human subspecies that demonstrate those principles.

Leftwingers who use anti-racism to squelch free speech - A new trend?
To be anti-racist, is it necessary to squelch the Constitutionally protected free speech of others who you dislike? It's also becoming increasing clear that double standards are also the modus operandi of the Communists and Pseudo-Anarchists [mostly thugs with little understanding of anti-statism and just like to break stuff] who use anti-racist language to promote their hatemongering.

http://community.livejournal.com/debunkingwhite/415644.html?thread=7474588#t7474588

"Sorry, no, I do not recognize the cultural concept of free speech for this group. Just like I don't accept the concept of racism against white people, I don't accept the concept that this action has"censored" the Minute Men."

The above individual is who dictators like Stalin used as their ideological officers. It's amazing how easy it is to dismiss the opposition's rights based on idealistic goals.

http://community.livejournal.com/debunkingwhite/415644.html?thread=7493276#t7493276

"Unlike many liberals I'm not overly concerned with free speech. I think people have tons of freedom to speak, but most have absolutely nothing to say... and even fewer listen critically."

In other words, your freedom to speak depends entirely on the political correctness of what you say and if it passes muster by those like myself and other like-minded individuals.

Rabid Anti-Americanism + Speech in Harlem = Blackfolk Support
I guess it comes to no surprise to anyone familiar with the militant wing of the blackfolk community that they basically don't have the U.S.' best interests in mind. So THIS THREAD should come to no surprise to anyone.

" Citgo, which is owned by the government of Venezuela"

Ummm, I didn't know that. I think I start making more of an effort to buy gas at Citgo.

yobachi2003 <-- Well known Afrocentrist militant in LJ circles and against Blacks mixing with other races.


And then there's this, where Chavez is considered a good guy because he has black people working with him. It doesn't matter if you're a Communist Fidel Castro wannabe, as long as you support black people, then you're A-OK. One wonders what if Adolf Hitler supported militant Blacks in order to undermine the U.S. during WWII, would he be supported too by the militant wing of BF as a great guy, like Castro and Chavez?

How much emotional race baggage are you carrying?
Let's play a little game. Sony's ad campaign for their new "white" PSP serves somewhat as a personal Rorschach test for personal neuroses about race. This is useful to be aware of because predetermined biases, be they through cultural indoctrination or personal experience, often prevent us from properly evaluating things as they really are. What are your first impressions upon seeing the picture from the ad? Innocent play on words, or overt and scandalous racism?

Hey I've got an affirmative action question that some of you race-obsessed folks might be knowledgeable on. When you apply for a job in the United States, you are often asked to fill out a "voluntary" supplemental information form for affirmative action purposes. Naturally, if I were not white, filling this out could only work in my favor. But since I fit its description of white, I'm curious, is it better to refuse to fill it out since it might attract unwanted government attention if they end up having too high a ratio of white employees? Which is more likely to hurt my chances of getting hired, refusing to fill it out or confessing to being white? Is it like being gay in the military? Would be better for them if I just didn't divulge the information? I've seen a look I could have sworn was disappointment on an HR recruiter's face when she saw the form with the "white" box checked. Maybe I could try to pass myself off as a mix?

Of US Children Under 5, Nearly Half Are Minorities.
Of U.S. Children Under 5, Nearly Half Are Minorities
Hispanic Growth Fuels Rise, Census Says

By D'Vera Cohn and Tara Bahrampour
Washington Post Staff Writers
Wednesday, May 10, 2006; Page A01

Nearly half of the nation's children under 5 are racial or ethnic minorities, and the percentage is increasing mainly because the Hispanic population is growing so rapidly, according to a census report released today.

Hispanics are the nation's largest and fastest-growing minority group. They accounted for 49 percent of the country's growth from 2004 to 2005, the report shows. And the increase in young children is largely a Hispanic story, driving 70 percent of the growth in children younger than 5. Forty-five percent of U.S. children younger than 5 are minorities.

The new numbers offer a preview of demographic shifts to come, with broad implications for the nation's schools, workforce and Social Security.
