The racism of Indiana Jones

The racist as an action hero

White Americans will watch another "Indiana Jones" film tomorrow which follows the exploits of a celebrated grave-robber and destroyer of indigenous cultures. These films consistency portray people of colour in an insensitive fashion and are filled with historical inaccuracies. The white man stole knowledge from Africa and destroyed the great library at Alexandria to hide his crimes. Now he makes films celebrating this kind of thievery.

The Day I Stood With Barack Obama At The MILLION MAN MARCH

Millions of African men including Barack Obama and myself heeded the call from Minister Louis Farrakhan to gather at Washington, DC

On October 16, 1995 millions of African men heeded the call from the leader and the Supreme Minister of the Nation of Islam to gather in the white man’s capital city of Washington, DC.

I attended the event along with several of my students, colleagues and friends. It was one of the most important days in African history, a moment in time when we united as one to take a stand against the white man at the very place where he plotted against us. It was the largest gathering of human beings at one location on Earth. It was also the day when I first met Barack Obama.

We gathered on that fateful day to be strong African men who would defend our families, history and culture. The spirit of that day was like nothing I had ever experienced, or have experienced since. I marched down to the National Mall with fellow Africans of all ages. When I reached the stage area on the steps of the Capitol and looked out into a sea of African men, many who stood for at least 10 hours, I held back tears. I knew this day would forever cause a change, if not in the world, certainly in me.

A colleague of mine, Mosi Kenyatta introduced me to Obama. Kenyatta told me that Obama was a teacher such as me who taught Obama taught law at the University of Chicago and that he also had plans to enter politics. I told Obama that I was pleased to hear this as the African people needed leaders who could help protect us from the white power structure. I briefly inquired of him as to what he knew of African history and great African leaders. I reminded him that he was the son of Kings and Queens and the no white man could ever hold him in judgment.

Obama promised me he would do what he could should he win election. He expressed hope that we could meet again. We wished each other "amahoro" and parted ways.

This was the day that Obama took his major first step towards the American Presidency. The inspiration of Farrakhan was undeniable and like the millions of other African men that day, Obama found his calling and discovered the path he must take. Today I join him on that path so that we can bring forth the vision of hope that Farrakhan showed us that day.

Because of Obama my students have hope

Barack Obama can end of the suffering of the African people caused by the white power structure of America

There is a new feeling, a new mood and a new sense of direction among my students as this semester comes to an end. All semester long we have discussed Barack Obama and what he represents. For the first time, students in my class are actually thinking of staying in America because of Barack Obama. He represents hope and we are hopeful.

Will the Bush Regime unleash the ethnic bomb on people of colour?

As we saw in West Virginia this week, Barack Obama must overcome racism in order to be the next American President. The Bush Regime will remain in power for at least another six months and the concerned peoples must worry about what that regime may yet still do.

In 2001 they staged the 9/11 hoax and they later attacked the nation of Afghanistan. In 2003 they invaded Iraq and in 2005 they murdered thousands in the Hurricane Katrina attack. We saw what happened in Burma and in China during the past month.

Clearly they are deeply worried about the very real prospect of an Obama Presidency. Will they unleash an ethnic bomb?

The following is from an open letter published by Senator Obama’s church to the African celebrity, Oprah Winfrey:

I do know that Mr. Mandela, who is probably the most respected man on Earth today, is your friend and hero. He is also mine. I met him in Chicago; and I had the honor of visiting him at his home in South Africa, years back. You are also a friend and a great admirer of Cape Town Archbishop Tutu, a Nobel Peace Prize dignitary, a man who has stood against injustice and racism almost his entire life. Both men describe Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians, the natives of the land, as worse than apartheid. Recently, Israel prevented Bishop Tutu from coming to Gaza to investigate and report Israel’s war crimes to the United Nations.

I must tell you that Israel was the closest ally to the White Supremacists of South Africa. In fact, South Africa allowed Israel to test its nuclear weapons in the ocean off South Africa. The Israelis were given a blank check: they could test whenever they desired and did not even have to ask permission. Both worked on an ethnic bomb that kills Blacks and Arabs.

Arabs have always supported the dismantling of this racist government. In 1962, African-Arab Sudan granted Mandela a passport to travel with to gain international support in his struggle to free his people. Libya, among other Arab states, provided Mandela and other African liberation movements, political as well as material support. As a result, Libya was designated by the White House as a terrorist rogue state. What a great honor!

The destruction in Burma is eerily similar to what happened in the wake of the Katrina Hurricane attack in 2005

The destruction in Burma is bringing back memories of the Hurricane Katrina attack of 2005

The death toll from the May 3 cyclone in Burma continues to rise. Some fear it may number over a million. But questions are being raised. Why did this cyclone seem to only target Burma and not a white nation such as Australia? And why is the U.S. government so eager to send its military to Burma to “help”?

The government of Burma has shown wise restraint so far in resisting these supposed offers of help from the United States. The world has not forgotten what happened in New Orleans in 2005. As we all know, the U.S. government continues to promote the lie that what happened in New Orleans was simply a natural disaster. Was Burma targeted and attacked as was New Orleans by the Bush Regime?

Another reason why the world needs Barack Obama to be the next American President.

My postings now available on the Barack Obama blog

I have been advising the Obama campaign on a limited basis during the past year and it has been a truly rewarding experience. I have met many wonderful people including both current and former students of mine. The exciting possibility of an African President of the United States is impossible to ignore.

With the current semester coming to an end I look forward to spending more time and energy helping Barack Obama overcome the white power structure and bring about truth and justice.

In assist in this goal, I am now also posting on the Obama site at
