Triple Darkness Repost
10.24.00


Gate Keeping is a serious problem which has been a blight on the African (Black) community ever since the early invaders of the Continent discovered that it was more profitable and less risky to rule by proxy through an artificially created, bought local elite.

Today we have so many Gate Keepers and a vast variety of gate keeping activities, it has become an almost "normal" experience. So much so that we often find ourselves pointing fingers at the militant, revolutionary activists (gate crashers) and tagging them as "trouble makers", radicals, militants or liberals without questioning why they have to cause trouble in the first instance. Most of us nowadays do not see gate keeping as a problem. Mainly because most of us are practising Gate Keepers.
  • What is a Gate Keeper?
  • What makes a Gate Keeper; are they born or are they made?
  • How do you recognise one?
  • Who do they work for?
  • How are they appointed and rewarded?
  • What can we do about this disease?
A Gate Keeper is a person who guards the interests of the oppressor against the advancing demands of the oppressed. He or she believes that it is their duty to prevent another person from doing something, saying something or going somewhere which the Gate Keeper thinks might cause offence to or encroach upon the authority of non-black people in power. ... Gate Keepers are usually from the community of which they feel duty bound to disenfranchise or act against.

In other words, a Gate Keeper is a traitor.

What makes a Gate Keeper?

Gate Keepers are not born backward, I do not believe that there is such a thing as a self-destructive traitor gene. Many diverse things may happen to a person as he or she grows up, that causes them to become who they are. How do you recognise a Gate Keeper and where do you look? The first thing you do is look at yourself. Do you see:

  1. someone who feels comfortable, energised, motivated and inspired when listening to, or associating with, anyone who speaks the truth, talks about freedom, opposes racism, exploitation, oppression and actively campaigns against social injustice?

  2. someone who gives credit where it is due, never trying to diminish the power or credibility of his or hercomrades?

  3. someone whose allegiance cannot be bought - at any price - by those who are currently waging a genocidal global war against you and your people?

  4. someone who will never betray their colleagues under any circumstance?

  5. someone who loves her / his people more than money or the trappings of "success"?


If you cannot answer "Yes" to all of those questions, you are most likely a Gate Keeper.

Red text my addition.

Well, we have witnessed many a "Gate Keeping" and have also been made aware of one of those seminal events in the unbalanced life and mind of our resident "Gate Keeper" extraordinare:

Don't get me wrong... I make plenty of spelling and grammatical errors. A lot as a product of trying to say too much. But I do recognize when I have done so and I know how I can be pretty verbose.

CON-Feed, on the other hand... Hmmm... "SPECIAL" is an apt term. Especially STUPID!! bump

I have to give it CON-Feed, he hablas le Ingles better than his ese Michael. Now trying to read a post from that guy is just downright cryptic!

CON-Feed is a punk-ass sellout, and Michael is a self-hating schizophrenic.
My enemy Isome:

Can you give us a few examples of "Gate Keepers" in the Black community? (I am sure your deck is stacked as usual)

Then as you rescan your list - If they HAVE NO POWER Among Black people via their thoughts and their numbers - please tell me how they are a THREAT to the masses?

Are you saying then they they in fact have A DISPROPORTIONATE AMOUNT OF POWER than their numbers indicate?

*****
Now let me ask you:

I have posted the sound track to "Hustle N Flow" several times on this message board. I made note of how the majority of these songs attack BLACK WOMEN for no reason except to profit off of the assault on their character.

These Sambo entertainers fail at #2 and #3 and #4 and #5 yet they escape the perpetual attack of people like you. They have a world wide audience. When I traveled out of the country twice this year the SAMBO beat me over to my destination. I saw their images all over the television and various ads. My image as a Black man was predefined.

Why is it that these people who are far more in number and have a far broader scope of transmission seem to escape any inspection of the content that they are releasing? Certainly if they were not Black they would NOT be able to say the words and put forth the images that they do.

Maybe you "Hate your enemies more than you attempt to build up your loved one's redirecting them from disrespecting your honor as a Black woman?"

Empty Maxist:

What am I "selling out"?

I have escaped the corrupt gravitational pull of the Black Quasi-Socialist Progressive Fundamentalist.

In his application of his measuring stick he has too often selectively apply his measurements that it no longer is a credible source of measure.

I have stopped making note of who you attack - it is too easy to predict. I now make note of who REALLY DOES violate your Black Consciousness as you remain silent. Some of you are about as unjust as a old school Southern jury hearing the case of a Black man who is charged with looking too hard at a White woman. The fact that he was born with his eyes sealed shut is of no consequence to you. GUILTY is the verdict that you render as you shape the evidence to fit the bias that you have had when you have entered the door of the courtroom. This man is GUILTY because he head followed the forward progression of the White woman and thus the White woman FELT UNCOMFORTABLE. He is guilty from HER PERSPECTIVE not from his lack of ability to see.

[b]I have always wondered how the Southern Racist could work up so much hatred for Blacks as he used the court system to carry forth his agenda. As I listen to some of you as you spout your ideology - I can see clearly how a person can execute such a systematic lynching based on their pre-programming.

Just as these white folks did not believe that they had evil in their hearts regardless of what the fruit that they have produced indicate, some of you are equally blind to your own racism and proclivity for evil. You are no better than those who's historical record you spit upon. You are not guided by justice.

Spoken in the most White light...

But I'm going to help you out, CON-Feed. Not only am I going to challenge you to THINK (for a change) like I do them "White Boys"... but, since ISOME was so adept in re-posting something that capsulizes this bit of knowledge you are in desperate need of, I'll just go right ahead and give it to you in the raw (sentiment):

Dude... Get a CLUE before you open your damn mouth.

Please note that Slavery was RACIALIZED (and institutionalized) before there was "Racism" or Race Hate via pseudo-scientific doctrines on "race."

So, as I have had to ask too many times:
WHAT DOES HATE HAVE TO DO WITH IT?

Like I said... GET A CLUE!!

Spelling, grammar, syntax, you name it I've botched it... you know what I'm talking about... you already hit the nail on the head. ...special kind of stupid.
Richard Dixon talks about his disconnection from the African diaspora:
    Such individuals are so ashamed of being black that they are drawn to an Euro-centric perspective in thought, culture, and association. A destructive perspective which historically has viewed people of color (particularly black people) with prejudice and unimportant in the shaping of world civilization. I can say such things based on my own personal experiences. It was not that long ago that I was one those brothers who not only denied his blackness, but wanted to destroy and humiliate the stalwarts of the African-American community by participating in a smear campaign of half-truths, bigotry, and arrogance while as a black Republican.


Here someone admits what others see clearly: that current political identifiers and one's view of others in the Black community are tied together.

I doubt that during his enchantment with the GOP that he could see himself for the Gate Keeper that he was.
Can't say I've ever heard of Richard Dixon but apparently he said the following as reported by a self-described Radical Right Wing website which shares CON-Feeds language and disdain for "Liberal Socialists" along with his an inane WHITE focus on the NAACP, etc.:
quote:
"Black Conservatism finds its roots in White Conservatism. Its elements are a total belligerency to present day black leadership, an indifferent attitude to the historic struggle of the African-American experience, an elitist view of the urban poor, and a total disconnection with the black populace in general."

"It is from a white elitist perspective that such black conservatives like Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and Shelby Steele derive their notions about the state of Black America in this country."

"They harbor, embrace, and validate these notions to the detriment of African-Americans and add fuel to a widening racial polarization."

I first heard of Richard Dixon back in '00. With the installation of the current mis-administration the Gate Keepers rose to prominence, albeit w/out credibility in the very community from which they originate.

More from Dixon:
    My socialization into Club white was further validated when I decided to join a predominantly white college called DePauw University in Greencastle, IN. For those of you not familiar with this institution of higher learning its most distinguish black alumni were Vernon Jordan and Dr. Percy L. Julian. There were only 36 African-Americans out of a predominantly white student body of 2500 students. Since there were no black sororities or fraternities at the time, I joined a white fraternity called Lambda Chi Alpha just to fit in. Most of my extra-curricular activities were centered on white college life minus the black student union. I did not get involved until my sophomore year and only after I helped to shape it into the image of what I thought it should be. Finally, during my final year of college I met a white woman who I eventually married two and a half years later. I didn't marry her because she was white, but because at the time I loved her. Yet lurking in the back of my mind was the notion that marrying outside the black experience would seem to make things easier for me in my ascension up through corporate America. I even joined the Mormon Faith later in the marriage to further appease the Anglo-Saxon mentality. I considered myself smart, articulate, well-spoken, ambitious, aggressive, and ruthless, qualities that I thought was endearing in White Corporate America.

That is pretty interesting.

Black Quasi-Socialist Progressives seem to have much in common with White Racists in my view.

They see Blacks as "damaged goods", unable to enter into colleges, for example, without special consideration.

I hear little difference between the quasi-socialist policies of the White Ted Kennedy and the majority of members of the Congressional Black Caucus. They both tacitly acknowledge the lack of a Black economic infrastructure locally and thus they seek funds from the Federal government to flow downward across political boundaires to compensate for the lacks within many majority Black communities.

Interestingly enough, however, the same defense of property that is seen by wealthy White folks in this country as they attempt to defend their wallets against the "leftists" is also exhibited by these LEFTISTS when it comes to protecting the national wallet against spending on foreign interests that could mean less for domestic social programs. Make no mistake about it these Leftists cannot claim to be HUMANITARIANS in their their efforts. They are only a special interest group that seeks to advance their agenda for people who they see are within their band only. They make use of the man made "Nation state" as a boundary for their concerns despite their rhetoric about how such a construct was rooted in European supremacy and exploitation.
A Gate Keeper is a person who guards the interests of the oppressor against the advancing demands of the oppressed. He or she believes that it is their duty to prevent another person from doing something, saying something or going somewhere which the Gate Keeper thinks might cause offence to or encroach upon the authority of non-black people in power. ... Gate Keepers are usually from the community of which they feel duty bound to disenfranchise or act against.
