This post is from Sonny B regarding the Jax Public Library sponsored Zoom call with Frederick Joseph discussing his book The Black Friend: On Being a Better White Person. He isn’t happy and none of us should be. Is this appropriate for a Public Library to approve the belittling of white people solely based on the color of their skin? To learn more about this Zoom call see link below and feel free to contact the Library and let them know what you think. Be a Better White Person
I like to start out with my writings revealing what my ethnicity is, so not to be labeled as a racist, an Uncle Tom maybe, but not a racist. In this hostile racial climate, one can never be too careful.
I am a proud black American law-abiding citizen of this great nation. I am not oppressed, and I thank God for the opportunities and freedoms the USA affords me as a native, husband and a father. I love all people and ALL LIVES DO MATTER. I tell it like it is and that doesn’t make me popular amongst my race of people, but I like the ole saying, “The truth hurts.”
Occasionally, I use a passage out of one of the most celebrated and most hated books in the world, the Holy Bible. It always shines the light on you as an individual. How you should treat others as yourself. How we should love our neighbor as ourselves. You know, those goodly characteristics every person should strive for. So, let me set the tone for where I’m heading. (NIV) Matthew 7:15 “ You hypocrite first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” In other words, you’re pointing out a very tiny problem of another person, when your problem is enormous.
This is a response to the Lit Chat online author talk with Frederick Joseph, titled “ The black friend: On being a better white person. This conversation will be shown live on zoom, Wednesday, March 31, 2021 at 7pm with the support of our local library. A 17 year old named Taylor Richardson was instrumental in bringing popularity and attention to Frederick Joseph’s book all over the world. This column isn’t to throw shade on the young lady, because she is obviously a brilliant and motivated student at the Bolles School. This article is written to expose the hypocritical lie and the bill of goods that’s been sold to the black race to keep us angry, bitter and ignorant to the truth.
The division between blacks and whites is spread throughout our nation by way of the: media, academia, Hollywood, sports, music, major corporations and now our very own libraries here in our wonderful city. The book by Frederick Joseph is one of the few books recommended for reading, highlighting the notion, to show white people how to become a better white person. Do we think that this would be offensive to white people? Or do we even care because of the hostile racial climate favoring the black race?
I have a question, What if a white man did it? I mean, wrote a book on how black people can become a better black person and made it live on zoom in our public library. If we were honest, we know there would be hell to pay. I would even say, that the library would deny it on the basis of racism. We would see the double standard in rare form as it has become the norm all over America. Blacks and the far- left liberals can say anything they want, but the conservative voice is told to sit down and shut-up. In other words, if you do not agree with leftist ideals, you do not have a voice under the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The left lump everything under hate speech..if it fits the description or not.
The Canadian rapper Tom MacDonald said it best in his Fake Woke lyrics, “ There’s a difference between hate speech and speech that you hate.”
The left say they are tolerant, until you disagree with them. If your ideology doesn’t line up with theirs: then they resort to name calling. If that doesn’t work, then they censor you or threaten your livelihood. If anyone is a major threat to exposing their propaganda, they dox you. Or they even use physical violence to shut you up.
A very brutal, and violent attack against conservative journalist Andy Ngo is a prime example of the left’s “tolerant” level. We saw this during 2020 with the protest (RIOTS) as mostly peaceful and as one mayor would put it, “It’s a summer of love.” A year of chaos, yet the media celebrated it and ignored the lawlessness, destruction and violence. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. always led a true peaceful protest, because I believe he realized that injustice plus injustice never equals a solution. I tend to wonder what he would think about the Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) today.
Meanwhile, for some odd reason, we as blacks think we have a corner on the market about who’s racist. I call us the racism Nazi, we see racism in everybody else, except us. We look for racism around every corner to have something to complain about.
Just think about this quote from Abraham Lincoln, “If you look for the bad in mankind, expecting to find it, you surely will.” I like to add to that by saying, “Racism comes in all colors, just because you’re black, God does not give you a pass!!!”
I’m fed up with the blackness movement and how the black race uses victim-hood to get demands. White progressives are perpetuating this nonsense by giving way to the divisive platform. Let’s just be honest, the George Floyd death was about a white man killing a black man. If we really cared about black lives, we would be lamenting in the streets day and night because of BLACK ON BLACK MURDER that take the lives of thousands of blacks every year in America.
Yet, we want to tell white people how to be better?
The elites want it to be about race, this is why police brutality gets 24/7 coverage. This is called identity politics and it is destroying our country from within. This is an excerpt from my ‘Look to a Nation’ poem:
“How else do you get blacks and whites to riot,
you feed them racism and you make it a steady diet.” – Sonny B
Police brutality, systematic racism, social injustice and white privilege is a diversion tactic to direct your attention away from the real issues in the black community. What do I mean? Let me explain:
I was reading an article from Fox 45 News out of Baltimore, by Chris Papst, posted on March 1, 2021, titled “City student passes 3 classes in four years, ranks near top half of class with 0.13 GPA.” This is a black student by the way. He ranks 62 out of his class of 120. That means 58 students in his class has a 0.13 GPA or lower. This was appalling as I shook my head in disbelief. I asked myself, how could this even be possible? The student in question, is the son of a black single mother of (3) three, with (3) three jobs to make ends meet and to provide for her children. WHERE IS THE FATHER?
Needless to say, my heart aches for black single mothers in the same predicament all across America. Yet, there is silence from wealthy black enablers like: Lebron James, Colin Kaepernick, Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, Jemele Hill, Don Lemon, Joy Reid and Snoop Dogg to name a few. These are some of the loudest mouths on issues like racism, police brutality, and social injustice. They spew racial hate and disdain for our country, but ignore the fact of: Fatherlessness, teen pregnancy, black abortion (Legal Genocide), crime, black on black murder, incarceration, gang violence, illiteracy and school dropout in the black community.
I have been screaming from the mountain top about these self-inflicted issues of the black community to my black race, only to be scorned and reminded about police brutality, something that hardly exists. However, with 24/7 coverage by the mainstream media, you would think police brutality is an epidemic.
The black race can be gullible and emotional, this is why we accept this narrative, because the harsh reality is, it’s very difficult to take responsibility for our own undoing. Unfortunately, all across America, black ghettos are in ruins. The disheartening thing is, they are mostly governed by black democratic officials sworn to serve these communities. While republicans are complicit in this sham of humanity, as they hide behind conservative values.
2020 taught me a lot, but November 3, 2020 told me that there is no difference between a wolf and a wolf in sheep’s clothing. We have a one party system! Think on this question for a while, “If you are an Independent, why don’t have the same voting privileges equal to a democrat or republican?”
I never thought I would see the day when the white male would be the most hated and scrutinized in America. Or that patriotism would become synonymous with white supremacy. Or that, I would see so called Americans yelling death to America and bring in socialism while burning the American flag. Or Coca-Cola, a major corporation in the United States of America telling their white employees to be less white. What? Am I the only one dumbfounded? I don’t have any words for this lunacy except…
when virtue leaves the room, it’s replaced by chaos.
Lastly, as I digress back to my original point. Let’s be realistic – if a white man wrote a book on how black people can become a better black person, BLM, black community leaders and black pastors would be on fire. The bias media bullhorn would be more than happy to stoke the flames with 24/7 coverage.
How does a foreign entity destroy the USA without ever firing a shot? Without using brutal and bloody traditional war tactics? You use identity politics — a plan directly from The Art of War. You pit white vs black; women vs men; left vs right; democrats vs republicans; homosexuals vs heterosexuals and poor vs wealthy.
Or just write a book telling white people how to become a better white person and display it for all to see on Zoom.
