When whites claim that Elvis Presley is not dead, they’re not talking ‘bout that fat, drug addicted man who is now gone, but the process of Culture Banditry that is alive and well in Eminem, Britney Spears, Sting, the Rolling Stones, Madonna, Sanborn, Kenny G and the legions lining up to steal the culture of Afrikan people, enjoying wealth/power and respect after the theft from the people darker than blue.

We are mass media junkies, who must get a daily jolt of their barbarism, murder, sexual backwardness, and anti-Afrikan propaganda. Their mass media continues to “annihilate Afrikan Images” to stall our struggles for liberation. In addition they are managing and destroying our culture as they continue the “Black Holocaust.” The Culture Bandits goal is to control our consciousness and produce Negro victims for exploitation.
It is critical that we understand; cartoons, radio, talk shows, television, music, videos movies, soap operas sports and fashions. We will watch that bastard “Amerikkkan Kulture” as it continues to destroy positive Afrikan images and culture. The Culture Bandit Watch is design to dissect and expose the enemy and the sellouts who enjoy a life of privilege because of the damage they do to we!

Just something to think about.

You're right about Elvis. Everyone knows that.
But lemme focus on another aspect for a moment.
White Supremicists, usually listen to metal music, or punk music, or country.
In all the above styles you have the electric guitar.
Country is an off-shoot of Delta Blues. Delta Blues is black music, straight up, no chaser.
Punk and Metal are both offshoots of rock. Before Hendrix, and I just thought about this the other day. (I feel stupid being that it's so obvious.)
But before Hendrix, in rock music anyway what was there for guitar?
Alotta crap, Alotta pop crap.
Aside from Chuck Berry, BB King, Robert Johnson, Bo Diddley, and too many others to list here. Popular music was garbage. And aside from slight variations it all sounded kinda the same. It seems like every other 50's song is about a dance craze.

Enter The Hendrix.

In my opinion, Hendrix basically distinigrated the doors open for all the great guitar music after him, especially the 80's metal. For guitarists, Hendrix and all the others I mentioned, are, well, very special.

But culture will do what culture does. These artist's are pretty well universally recognized as the columns which support music today. And, what I don't want, is this to be taken away.
I don't listen to Elvis, because not only did he not write alot of "His" music, but the people who did write it, never got paid, or got paid almost nothing.
This is tough to talk about, those songs are too good do be done for free.
I'll hit this forum back when I have a bit of perspective.

If you don't already, listen to some Hendrix today, you'll hear what I mean.
And someday, tell a rascist, that without Chuck and Jimi, he'd be listening to classical music, or worse, he'd listen to polka.

This brings up another point. Television/media stereo types blacks, native americans, asains, indians(from india) and just about any other race you can think of.

The pollution hating, casino owning native. The ganbangin black or mexican kid, The asain nerd or the kung fu hero, the indian gas station clerk.

its part of the assimilation where you accept the white washed as being on par with the straight laced no water down variety of cultures that are more original. in the washing down the culture is homogenized where they become - those who adopt and conform - as looking sounding and talking the samer. they questiuon nothing and take everything as fact while standing for nothing except more of the same. these are the ones who don';t rock the boat nor voice opinions for fear will be outcasted. yet when you look at the culture the outcasted ones are the ones pushing the envelope. they want people to be self-conscious where they will live in fear of breaking down stereotypes and accept the status quo. the status quo has no quotes to dispell they will show nor tell the history of the culture of the given drones who get made like clones. its the making of the mainstream through co opting the margins into mainstreet through advertising then through outright blasphemy per se. the subliminals are to work the unconscious and show up as politics which arrest their developement and from that arrested developement they will need some therapy to free their mind of the chains that have been attached. the political brain freeze when we support the washing or say it is acceptable and the yourth don't know that they are being crapped on and the culture is getting robbed.

Divide and Conquer.

I see done by my own people just to make a buck. Chris Eyre, a native, directed Smoke Signals, which I thought was a good flick. Then he did a movie about Pine Ridge called "Skins," Which hit close to home- (my dad and several of my friends have cameo's in it) right out side, he made Pine Ridge look dead, and he made the indians here look stupid, then I realized he did the same thing to the reservation on Smoke Signals. Why couldn't he have made movie about an Indian super hero, or a scientist, or even a serial killer flick on the rez? He just used us to make a buck.

Why do people say this is racist material? Blacks are not allowed to own anything for too long. Certain peoples are going around "buying up" black business' and these people are not black, brown or whatever you what to call them. Essence mag, BET, Rocawear....just to name a few. Black people are constantly victimized in this Amerikkkan society and when one of us (another victim) they are called racist without any justification. This country was founded on racist ideals. Then they will say, "You are living in the past." The past is currently the present as Europeans continue the Black Holocaust all over this planet.

Not only that, but it divides the different cultures of people to believe certain things about each other to not get along. If you think- oh those indians are all drunks don't go over there, or those black guys will shoot you if go in their neighborhood, we don't learn from each other, we don't grow. It's not really trying to merge cultures, it's more like understanding each other to get along. If you have blacks and mexicans fighting or mexicans vs. mexicans, blacks vs. blacks, mexicans vs. indians etc.... killing each other, it only opens up opportunities for whites. Jobs, realastate, funeral homes, guns, alcohol, law enforcement, lawyers, politics- that's how they keep us poor- in order to have an upper class you gotta have a working class. Sure minorities have jobs in high places, but what is the majority of the minority doing?

If you break the stereo types, you have people working together for a better community. Of course it isn't just stereo types that keep people divided, or the only cause of poverty, but it doesn't help make things better. White people don't want to see minorities working together, reading books, taking their jobs. Television reflects that. They want see you on cops getting beat down by 300 pound white dude. They want see a minorty break dancing on TV, not a minority becoming a procecutor and slapping some white dude in Jail. Why do you think all the shows about Law have white person defending the minorities?

Stop playing Victimology, grow some balls and get over it. I nor anyone else I have ever known did anything racist that inflicted mental or physical harm upon another.

No body's trying to pick on you, it's just that, some of us grew up with a lot of racism. It might not be right there in front of your eyes, but it's there. You tell us to get over it, but your just throwing it back in our face- get over slavery, get over reservations, get over it- how can I get over it when it effects where I can find a job and where I can live. All I can do is speak out against it, and if the truth hursts then re-evaluate how you live and set an example for your peers.

It's different for you, becuase whites treat you as an equal(i'm assuming your white). This post just can't explain to you the type of shit that some people go through because of race, so saying just because someone never experienced slavery in the whip and chains sense, they still face the mentality of people that would like to see them in chains, or they like to see you suffering. Some- not all- but some people like to see others suffer.

No one is playing "Victimology" as you say. You said, "You personally, did not suffer the way slaves did and to keep bringing it up over & over again is only kicking dirt on their graves." No, must of us do not suffer the way our ancestors did but we do suffer in ways that are comparable. Of course You and your peers cannot see it because none of the oppression is directed your way or maybe You are the ones doing the Oppressing.

You also said Even if I inadverantly supported something racist, that is the way the racist so called fathers of usa have the system set up.

If you inadvertently supported something racist, what you don't know if you did or didn't do something to oppress another person. Let's get real, son. If their is a doubt about whether or not you "supported something racist" that can lead to suspicion which leads to doubt. I suggest you take you own advice and grow a pair. Those so-called racist fathers you speak of were not mine were they your fathers? If so, that explains why you say we don't suffer to you we are mere animals, thats what your fore fathers taught you so you would not have the testicular fortitude to stand up and learn anything different about other cultures. This country was built on the backs of my ancestors if it were not for them you would have no resources to use. There is no stereotype here this is based strictly off the historical actual facts of the "racist fathers" of the U.S.A.(United Snakes of America- Benjamin Franklin.)

And both of you - You seem like bright dudes, seek ways to get outside of the "normal" society. This is where people with questions often look for answers. The people without questions, maybe ya shouldn't bother with so much. If they're happy with things, then they're stupid. F' em.

they the whites respect the culture but not the the people who started created that culture. example they respect jazz greatly but the blacks who started/created not. it is like they patronize them for the culture bot use pogroms to keep them back - like a press of sortskeep pressing them to create more new culture facets but don't pay them the respect needed to actually get the benefits from the culture. they pander for they have no culture that they can sell to people who are more creative and lively. they want 'soul' and 'cool points'. they want to be able to walk and talk among those they wish to divide through the various politics they get stirred up from them entering those people via their culture. they have to be labled racist for me if they give any due credit it is after they have died - postmously. when another facet of the culture has sprung up like covering/closing a door so the next don't know what cultures they have in their repoitore/background. they have no respect which is tinged with racism. we got getting and have to stop being bamboozled.

Voyager is now leaving our Solar System. This is to say the very least, far away.

Chuck Berry = R&B transformed and improved into Rock&Roll to influence kids in England to grow up to be The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton

What is your point?

My point is that, these songs were included on a record that if found by any other intelligent life, will be the 1st things they hear from our species, from our planet. My point is that out of every song in existance up until the 1960's when this craft was launched, NASA chose the songs listed.

Of course now that I think about it, radio waves travel much faster through empty space than Voyager ever could. So if they're listening, then they've heard everything up until very recently.

So, I suppose, my point is that an actual copy of Chuck Berry's music, among many others. An actual hard, pressed copy of this, has made it farther away from our planet than any other man made object ever has. And that it was created by us as a beacon, to introdice ourselves to other species.

Besides all that, it's interesting.

This is why I dislike this forum. It's cynical.

Despite what you think the information you posted has nothing to do the with the topic being discussed in this particular thread. You tried to throw Elvis in at the end of your post to try and make it fit but it doesn't. Thats cynical.

If you are wrong admit it and move on. No need for juvenile behavior.
