Black People : Gossiping about Black Folks.

It may sound petty and bordering on paranoid but I wonder if this could play a part in the violence against Black men at the hands of cops and others of different races?

I think the way we are portrayed in tv, the news and movies influences how people see Blacks/African Americans/Africans because I see the media and Hollywood as a for of computer coding.


Television is used to promote commercial, social and political agendas.

Television has effects on society’s behavior and beliefs by publicizing stereotypes, especially with race. According to research done in 2015 by Dixon on misrepresentation of race in local news, Blacks, in particular, were accurately depicted as perpetrators, victims, and officers. However, although Latinos were accurately depicted as perpetrators, they continued to be underrepresented as victims and officers. Conversely, Whites remained significantly overrepresented as victims and officers

Gossip has been researched in terms of its origins in evolutionary psychology, which has found gossip to be an important means for people to monitor cooperative reputations and so maintain widespread indirect reciprocity. Indirect reciprocity is a social interaction in which one actor helps another and is then benefited by a third party. Gossip has also been identified by Robin Dunbar, an evolutionary biologist, as aiding social bonding in large groups.

Peter Vajda identifies gossip as a form of workplace violence, noting that it is "essentially a form of attack." Gossip is thought by many to "empower one person while disempowering another" (Hafen). Accordingly, many companies have formal policies in their employee handbooks against gossip.

If there are rules for gossiping in the workplace and if gossiping is considered an attack there then it should also be considered an attack outside the workplace and in any place that people gather and talk about other people. It's an impossibility but if there was a way to curb people from 'gossiping' about Black people including other Blacks I wonder if the violence/murder against Blacks by cops, which is obviously is based in some way in a prejudgment or prejudice, would wean off? but if this could possibly happen then it would cross the line in regards to limiting free speech and the way a person thinks.

The media doesn't help all the time but without it, and some additional knowing and research. We get the truth sometimes. The media job is to check the politicians and report to the citizens that something is wrong. Politicians have us fighting at out r levels, and the media is distracted long enough that they get to rob the treasury, do some dirty stuff before they are seen.. then they claim it is so. The have immunity, the police do, the parole officers do they all do.. all politicians do. Diplomatic to a great degree.. and that does exist and held by some.

Here is the question.. argument.. Officer did you really have to do that to do your job? They answer yes..
Then they are protected. That simple... Immunity applys

You can't argue with them once that claim is made.. that it was justified and necessary in order to do their job. They hold out on arresting the officer, go thru some appeasing motions and waste time to come around and give that answer.

The Devil is A Lier .. and the Media does play up the clips and report to get coverage, but the culprits are the people that allow the game.

The political arena of games.. Politics, politicians play.. one against the other.. Poor Whites against Blacks ( their homes, salaries, their children's education, their security all on the working class.. US ) like they care.. selfish Senators and Representatives looking out for theirs , and really looking out for themselves.

Since they know there will be so many Democrats and so many claiming to be Republican..

Take that way and all the games end. Politicians will almost personally talk to the common man and woman for support

Goes on all year, all the time and we as pawns are always fighting, suffering looking for justice.



It goes without saying that those who seek to exercise their constitutionally protected right to assemble in the street and speak their minds will find no support from Jefferson Beauregard Sessions’s Justice Department, or from police brutality’s cheerleader-in-chief, Donald Trump.

What we have seen in St. Louis over the last fortnight is the outline of an actually existing police state. There is no apparent check on the actions of police officers but the limits of their own energy and the dictates of their own conscience.

The Dred Scott decision effectively argued that black people lived in Missouri by the grace of white people.

"No Rights Which the White Man was Bound to Respect": The Dred Scott Decision
On March 6, 1857, Chief Justice Roger Taney issued what is widely regarded as the worst Supreme Court opinion ever. He noted that the question before the Court was whether African Americans are citizens of the United States and thus able to file suit in federal court. His analysis of that issue is couched in abjectly racist language:

[African Americans] had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect; and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit. He was bought and sold, and treated as an ordinary article of merchandise and traffic, whenever a profit could be made by it

The response to this opinion was immediate. Rather than settle the issue of slavery, it simply inflamed public opinion and divided the country further. Frederick Douglass assailed Chief Justice Taney's opinion, noting that the rights of African Americans derive not from any judicial pronouncement, but from natural law:

We are now told, in tones of lofty exultation, that the day is lost all lost and that we might as well give up the struggle. The highest authority has spoken. The voice of the Supreme Court has gone out over the troubled waves of the National Conscience, saying peace, be still . . . The Supreme Court of the United States is not the only power in this world. It is very great, but the Supreme Court of the Almighty is greater.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.
