Please join us as we discuss white identity politics. This 3 part series will discuss how the establishment profits from identity politics. We will discuss how capitalism was built on slave labor and is currently fueled by anti-blackness. The political elite continues to exploit and manipulate the proletariat for their own selfish agenda.
How did European immigrants became 'white' and at what cost?
How is white supremacy perpetuated by honorary white people?
What role does people of color play in capitalism?
Are (some) white people victims of identity politics? Does it adversely impact their lives?
What are social contracts? How are they negotiated?
Are people of color truly attempting to end white supremacy or are they trying to get a seat or better seat at the table?
Are the black political elite overseers that profit from telling poor and working class blacks to forget about and/or pray about being oppressed?
And much more...

More Oscar Backlash-As more celebrities speak out on the whiteness of the Oscars, Actress Stacy Dash has a different take on the controvesy!!
Where is the relationship between blacks and Hollywood? Most people don't know that Hollywood was built on the exploitation of black inferiority. There is a culture and legacy of black degradation in Hollywood. Movie studios, writers, film directors, casting directors, producers, and actors all seem to prefer (whiteness). The fact of the matter is we only have a few Oscar winners because our work isn't respected by the dominant culture. Our stories are unable to get told because of this phenomenon. Is a boycott enough? Should we be more concerned about creating our own?
Hr1 A light dusting of snow brings Washington DC to it's knees. Over 100 accidents in the first day! It's going to be a rough weekend.
Jimmy Kimmel goes man on the street asking people their thoughts on MLK, Jr., endorsing Trump for president.
UnitedHealth reconsidering participation in Obamacare due to excessive losses. What are they going to do now? Private companies don't survive without profit.
US Air Force to allow service members to carry weapons.
Obama destroyed after US Navy boats transporting top ISIS terror leader captured by Iran. Huge coverup... and ridiculous cooperation with Iran. Shameful.
Hr2 Jesse Watters asks people to explain the difference between Democrats and Republicans.
Jane Fonda and a few other actors drive the Dump Trump campaign. Anyone else think this may just be the campaign that seals the deal for his presidency?
Arizona State offered a course called “The Problem with Whiteness" and Portland Community College took it one step further by declaring April 2016 to be “Whiteness History Month.” And that's not a good thing. It's meant to shame whites.
What happened to that clear line of respect between teachers and students? trusting teachers with our kids, not have to worry about them having sex with our teens!
Hr3 Freedom of speech does not apply100% on a school campus. It's basically it's own island. The principal has an enormous amount of latitude in deciding how to apply rules and laws.
Marco Rubio stands up for atheists and Christians saying... no one forces you to believe in God & no one will stop me from talking about God either. Protecting the 1st Amendment.

What does it really mean to be white? And how do white people define themselves in a post-Ferguson world full of rage and protest? Today on BOLD, LeGrande Green interviews Whitney Dow, the award-winning director of “The Whiteness Project,” an explosive documentary about race and cultural identity in America.
Whitney tells LeGrande: “People see this as controversial but I don't. I simply wanted to create a vehicle for white people to look at themselves. Whiteness is an attribute that affects everything in our everyday life and our interactions. But no one talks about it.”
“The Whiteness Project” features intimate interviews with 21 people from Buffalo, New York, discussing race in a frank–and often cringeworthy–fashion. People like “Jason” who says, “For some reason, some black people hold on to the back-in-the-day slave thing. Should slavery be something that because it happened we owe black people more? Absolutely not.” Another woman expresses her fear at how “black men in general” take a smile as “an invitation to approach.”
In essence what is the Human Being? The human history reveals that the very first Human Beings Are Black, the fantasy of White people is their lie. They have set themselves apart from the rest of the world. The idea of whiteness comes from the lie of Superiority. If something is white in this world it is classified as better, but is it truly better? For this lie is told to children from birth “you are white”. The only thing I have seen on a human being that is white is HAIR. Those people who come from the Caucuses Mountain Chain are in fact beige. Beige is the lightest shade of Brown, it appears that way on the color spectrum and that is the truth of the matter. Those who are paler colors of Brown are initiating a mindset in the world that they are some how better than those who a darker shades of Brown, Yellow, Red and Black because they are set above and seen more favorable to rule others through Wealth. Wealth which they have acquired through, murder, conquest, and thievery. We will hear from the films of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing on her theory of WHITE SUPREMACY.
Waking up White author Debby Irving offers firsthand insight to the everyday perpetuation of racial inequality by well-intentioned white people. A community organizer and classroom teacher for 25 years, Irving grappled with racial injustice without understanding racism as a systemic issue or her own whiteness as an obstacle to it. Her book tells the story of how she went from well-meaning to well-doing. Waking Up White functions as both a “Racism 101” for white people and a rare exposé on whiteness for people of color. By sharing her sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions, she offers a fresh perspective on bias, stereotypes, manners, and tolerance. Her husband says: “It couldn’t have happened to a whiter person.”
Debby devotes herself to working with white people exploring the impact white skin can have on perception, problem solving, and engaging in racial justice work. Her first book, Waking Up White, tells the story of how she went from well-meaning to well-doing.
Racism is a word that we've heard over and over in the last year. Are police killing people due to their race? The Washington Post put out an article Monday titled "Did White Privelage Prevent the Planned Parenthood Attacker from Being Killed". They later changed the title to include the word "whiteness" instead of white privelage.
The LESMA team promises interesting and thought-provoking dialogue on this topic and what we can do today to change the narrative repeated in the media so frequently. Tune in!
From the crest of Olivet, Jesus looked upon Jerusalem. Fair and peaceful was the scene spread out before Him. It was the season of the Passover, and from all lands the children of Jacob had gathered there to celebrate the great national festival. In the midst of gardens and vineyards, and green slopes studded with pilgrims' tents, rose the terraced hills, the stately palaces, and massive bulwarks of Israel's capital. The daughter of Zion seemed in her pride to say, I sit a queen and shall see no sorrow; as lovely then, and deeming herself as secure in Heaven's favor, as when, ages before, the royal minstrel sang: "Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, . . . the city of the great King." Psalm 48:2. In full view were the magnificent buildings of the temple. The rays of the setting sun lighted up the snowy whiteness of its marble walls and gleamed from golden gate and tower and pinnacle. "The perfection of
beauty" it stood, the pride of the Jewish nation. What child of Israel could gaze upon the scene without a thrill of joy and admiration! But far other thoughts occupied the mind of Jesus. "When He was come near, He beheld the city, and wept over it." Luke 19:41. Amid the universal rejoicing of the triumphal entry, while palm branches waved, while glad hosannas awoke the echoes of the hills, and thousands of voices declared Him king, the world's Redeemer was overwhelmed with a sudden and mysterious sorrow. He, the Son of God, the Promised One of Israel, whose power had conquered death and called its captives from the grave, was in tears, not of ordinary grief, but of intense, irrepressible agony.
