wastefulness in the Black Community.....

There is a great deal of wastefulness in the Black community.  For example: we literally saved the United State's Coinyack industry by being manipulated into buying so much of the booze that we literally bought enough to ``save the industry,'' that many business people had all but written off.  We, as Black People, also spend thousands of dollars on cigarettes; illegal drugs and diet sodas--none of which are good for a Person's health and ALL of which have been mentioned in several health journals as health risks.  Our District Attorney in Philadelphia thinks it is a good idea for the laws on marijuana use to be relaxed.  He and many other Law-Makers say the use of marijuana could be regulated by the government and this would lead to less harmful chemicals being introduced to the ``joint'' and would mean less Black men in jail for illegal possession if the use and possession of marijuana were DE-criminalized.  I personally think that our youth especially need to be thinking clearly and not have their minds fogged with such chemicals that are even naturally in ``joint.''  We have to be on top of what we are doing and thinking clearly so we can face the world and the city with a clear mind--ready to take on problems and move into a brighter better future.  What do you think?  Feel free to write me at BrotherTracy11@GMail.Com.

When we start to take back our money, save it, and spend it on books that are designed to help our community--such as ``Our Black Year,'' by Maggie Anderson--who spent years with Her husband doing research in the Chicago area about how best to spend money in BLack communities and what that means for our forward motion as a people, we will have really begun to make the progress we ALL, as Black People, really dream of, earn and deserve.

It Is Wonderful...

``It is wonderful how People act like real Human Beings during the Kwanzaa--Christmas Holiday Season. Even White People manage to act Like real Human Beings over the Kwanzaa--Christmas Holiday Season. It would be so nice if everybody acted like decent Human Beings During the whole year, every year--until the end of seven millinium--counting one day at a time and starting from today--November 25th, 2013.  Now wouldn't that be nice? I think so. ''

The Community Takes on the Issue of Helping Black Youth.


we have a big job as members of the black community to help our black youth take their studies more seriously, respect peers and elders; and be more thrifty while saving money for the future instead of getrting involved in negative things and emotional spending.

It is a job we can ALL take on, even if you, like me, have very little direct interaction with Black youth and have a very busy scheduel....

Peace and Blessings,

``Fear of a Black Republican,'' By Brother Tracy Gibson.....

At the end of the film ``Fear of a Black Republican,'' grass-roots Republican activists crying foul and armed with charges of racism, failed socialism and demanding REPARATIONS [but not being too vecefirous in their demeanor], visit the D.C. office of Nanci Palisi concerning how the Democratic Party has failed to truly represent Black People and has taken Black voters for granted.  Made to answer questions are conservative Anne Coulder [Who says she choses Donna Brazile over former governor Howard Dean {2005 - 2009}--who she called ``The idiot in Green Pants'']; and 2008 Republican contender, former Arizona Senator John McCaine [who says he would ``welcome Blacks and all people'' into the Republican fold.]

Former Black Republican Senator, Edward Brooks is one of the interviewees in this film directed by Kevin J. Williams, who is a White Republicans living in Trenton, New Jersey at the time {2011}.
He said, ``The Republican Party ignors the Black vote, The Democrats take them for granted.'' Black jorunalist Tavis Smiley also chimes in as does Black activist and college professor Cornell West.  A Republican stratigest discusses how ``writing off'' Black voters and not spending time and money to ``wake up'' the Black voters comes at a costs to the conservative party.

The roots of the Republican Party are traced back to the abolitionist movement who championed the causes of the anti slavery movement and found their hero in electing Abraham Lincoln. The devistatingly low numbers of Black Republican voters were reviewed [which, the film forgot to mention, is mostl likely why former President George W. Bush found himself having to ``steal'' the election of 2000 and 2004.].

After looking at the Republican Party history, the film also open the flood-gates of thought by showing us that is was, according to this film, the Democratic Party that championed the causes of the Ku Klux Klan and provided the platform for them to kill and chastize Blacks in the South during and after slavery. 

ALso Examined: How Senator John Kennedy, in his successful bid for the Presidency in 1960, prepared a voter pamphlet that specifically targeted Black voters and got them to the poles, while the Republican candidate feared reacing out to the Black voter and lost the White House bid that year.

Three aspects of the film that were important, but ignored, were 1] The dominance of the Tee-Party and their racists, pro-Capitalists goals; and 2] how liberal Republicans were hounded out of the Republican Party and what impact that has on voting patterns and legislation.  3] How do Republicans open their hearts and minds to re-capture the anti-racist roots of the party and become truly workable for a broader spectrum of North Americans while also having a more sustainable foreign policy that is fair to the world's people and finds Ways to treat other countries with humanity instead of exploitation, brutality and weaponry. [Perhaps Mr. Williams should consider making a second part to this film and work with a Black moderate filmmaker.].

Also not covered in this film: How the United States, in many sectors, is considered a corporation--not a country-- and how this concept [real or imagined] impacts on legislation, and our ability to positively lead our people, be truthful withour people and move into the future. What does this ``corporate concept'' say to Black voters, some of the most loyal Democrats in the country? If this ``corporate concept'' is true, who is in control of this corporation? Also not covered: how every other ethnic group in the United States is allowed to set up shop and exploit Black shoppers, except for Black Americans themselves [especially in some cities like Newark, New Jersey; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Detroit, Michigan.].

The film is a Trenton / Princeton case study, but was also filmed in Washington, D.C. and Georgia.

Introspective Thoughts on Being Gay in North America....

It is not easy being Black and Gay in North America. Yes we are attractive and in ``Vogue.'' Yes we have sex and have fun and can, to some degree, enjoy our lives, especially now with the higher level of acceptance of Gay and Lesbian people in general. But underneath the parties, the bar scene, the entertainment industry jobs and the flashy new acceptance and the ``Gay Marriage'' issue in the headlines, there is a lot of pain that runs very, very deep and a Black community that is still unforgiving, harsh and often hateful towards us. But all that aside, I have to ask each and every Gay and Lesbian Black person in North America, what have they done lately to raise the ethical standards of yourself and our community? What have you done to be more honest in your personal and business relationships? What have you done to make your living as a faithful Christian, Jew or Muslim ring true, real and authentic with yourself [ourselves] and in the face of GOD? What have you done to be honesty with yourself about the issues you have that need clarification, study, thought and mental and emotional healing? When we do these things, this introspective homework, we will see our level of acceptance rise and even if we don't our level of self-esteem, self-LOVe and self-acceptance will go up significantly and that will cause the healing and the forward motion we have all been seeking.

I have been politically and financially and even socially ostracized for some time  for some of the views I havee.

Dear Will Smith.....

Dear Will Smith:

I don't know if the photos of you with the White chick are real and accurate.  It is NONE of my business or concern. I know you most probably don't like having your photos and your life splattered across the media like that. I know you want to maintain a wholesome and clean image for yourself and your family--even if you DID have an affair with the White woman. 

One thing I want you to know: The White-run Goliath Media has a tendency to run crazy with stories about Black male celebrities who act out and have affairs outside of their major relationship.  They go especially crazy if the major and or dominate relationship is with a beautiful Black woman, like you have and most likely cherish with Sister Jada Picket Smith--your wife.

Just look at the carnivorous behaviour of Barbara Walters as she stalks her pray like a crazy shark waiting for more blood to appear in the water as she covers Kanye West and that White woman of His.  And Kanye West doesn't even have a Black main squeeze like you do.  Barbara Walters is just totally out of Her mind.

I look back at the years you have spent with Jada and I am hopeful that you can clear this matter up.If nothing else, for the sake of the children.   I am hoping that the whole fiasco was not staged.  I know full well--as a career PR man--that sometimes celebrities stage sch events to get their names in the media--no matter what--when they want to get a Big Budget film ``Green Lighted'' like your ``Hancock II'' or  ``Bad Boys III'' both of which are coming up for budget review.  Why on earth you should have to stoop to something like that when you have one of the biggest names in ALL of Hollywood, I can't fathom for one potato.

By the Way, have you ever thought of doing another movie out on the limb like maybe a re-make of ``A Patch of Blue,'' or ``One Potato, Two Potato,''??  Our Nation is really suffering from a lack of racial understanding and racial sharing.  Different races haven't made any significant since we ALL got duped into voting for President Barack Obama in 2008.  We need a major motion picture to examine this racial thing in a Big Way.  I hope you decide to do so instead of just making another easy $20 Million Dollars by making ``Bad Boys III or ``Hancock II.''

{By the Way, I have to admit to you once again that the scene with you and Martin Lawrence chastising the young 16 year-old boy as He comes up to the house to take Lawrence's daughter to a date is possibly the funnest damned movie scene I have ever sceen. That is saying a GREAT DEAL because I have seen literally thousands of movies.}

I look back at your movie career and I know for sure that you LOVe our Black people.  I don't care how many White Women they catch you in bed with.  I also know for sure that you have done a great many things for the poor folks here back in your Home Town of Philadelphia.

I have one favor to ask.  I have a very hard-headed friend, a Brother, who lives near Overbook High School.  He is about to lose His house and destabilize His entire block if He doesn't get His house repaired with a new roof and heating system.  Let me know if you can help or point me in the direction of getting Him help.  He was a very good friend for about ten years, but we have had a falling out over this because I promised Him I would somehow get Him the money, but haven't come through as yet. Take care. Stay in there.  We LOVe you back here in Philadelphia.

With Peace and Blessings,

Brother Tracy Gibson.......
