Posting these videos is sure to cement my credentials as a “racist”, but that’s just the way it goes.
Before you all jump all over me: yes, I know what CofCC is. But rather than discredit the source, consider the information itself.
The first video is of former South African President Nelson Mandela singing along with a song in the Xhosa language. The subtitles giving the translated lyrics reveal a message that is somewhat different from the one Mr. Mandela gives in English when he talks to reporters:
The second video is an impassioned speech by the late Khalid Abdul Muhammad, an associate of Malcolm X and Louis Farrakhan, and chairman of the New Black Panther Party. In his speech Mr. Muhammad refers to Nelson Mandela’s words, but chides the South African President for not going far enough.
WARNING: the language in this video is offensive, and the content is disturbing:
Below the jump is a transcript of the video. Once again, the language is raw and disturbing:
– – – – – – – – –
“I say when they don’t get out of town by sundown… I say if they don’t get out of town… we kill the men… we kill the women, we kill the children, we kill the babies, we kill the blind, we kill the cripple, we kill the crazy, we kill the faggots, we kill the lesbians, I say goddamnit we KILL THEM ALL!
He [Mandela] said: “Well, why kill them all?”
“Why kill the women?” … First, “why kill the babies? They’re just little innocent blue-eyed babies!” … Because goddamnit they’re gonna grow up one day to rule YOUR babies. Kill them now…
“Why kill the women in South Africa?” I say kill the women because the women are military manufacturing center… And every nine months they lay down on their BACKS, and reinforcement rolls out from between their legs. So SHUT DOWN the military manufacturing center… by killing the white women.
“Why kill the older crackers,” the old crippit crackers in South Africa… How in the hell you think they got old?!… They got old oppressing and killing black people. I say kill the crippled, kill the [inaudible] goddamnit … Kill them all… Kill the faggots, kill the lesbians, and after you kill them ALL, I said that day about Mandela to let you know what he REALLY knows about me, he don’t know a DAMN THING, I said then you go to the goddamn GRAVE… And you DIG THEM UP! And you kill them a-goddamn-gain… Because they didn’t die HARD enough …
And if you don’t have the strength to dig them up after you done all THAT work… Just go to the grave and SHOOT in the damn grave…
Kill them again… because they didn’t die hard enough… I don’t have NO respect for Mandela.”
What are we to make of all this?
Black people in South Africa have been sorely oppressed. But how should the remaining minority of white people react to these demands that they be killed?
As for American blacks in the late-20th century United States — was their situation so brutally oppressive that the only solution is to kill all the “crackers”?
And what should the white response be to this sort of rhetoric? More set-asides for minorities? Somehow, I don’t think that will be good enough.
Increased affirmative action in education and hiring? More legislation outlawing discrimination?
Or are white people supposed to lie down and die to atone for the sins of their fathers?
The only thing I know for certain is that if a white man said the same things about black people, he would be arrested and charged with incitement, and with a “hate crime” enhancement attached.
But in the patronizing racism of “post-racial” American culture, black people cannot possibly be racists. No matter how vile and hateful their speech is, it is justified by the history of white oppression.
And this sort of rabid rhetoric did not die with Khalid Abdul Muhammad. It lives on in the New Black Panther Party, and now enjoys official immunity from any legal consequences, thanks to Eric Holder and the Justice Department under the post-racial administration of President Barack Hussein Obama.
