Dear White Man

As you can see, the title might be very provocative to some of my readers. Don’t know why, because in 2014, on a million dollar budget, Justin Simien put out a movie called “Dear White People, which made over five million bucks in eleven theaters over a few weeks and finished as the 3rd highest-grossing film to come out of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. It’s not like it hasn’t been addressed before. Anywho, I am just talking to one white man named Steven King.

Steven King is a congressman from Iowa who during a roundtable in 2016 made the following remark, “White people have contributed more to the advancement of human civilization than any other “sub-group of people.” Now before I get ready to rip him a new one and then set it on fire, I’m going to just point out the two most obvious things he left out in his declaration. #1.) You wouldn’t have even been here talking this BS, if it wasn’t for a black person who 60,000 years ago left Africa and fathered your race. #2.) Your “sub-group” is responsible for the majority of all the humans killed by other humans since recorded history and your sub-group only represent 11.5% of the population… Now I want you hold on while I get my gloves and some matches…

Ripping A New One

Around 70,000 years ago, an event called the great migration began. It was then that black men and women, the only humans at the time, migrated from Africa and fanned out across the earth to father the human race. There were no Whites, Asians, Indians, Mexicans, Japanese, Eskimoes or none of that !@@!#. It was only us. Now, we had been around at least 200,000 years before that. The earliest fossils of recognizably modern Homo sapiens appear in the fossil record at Omo Kibish in Ethiopia, around 200,000 years ago. Scientist know this because we have left a genetic map. Every human on this planet has a copy of the Mitochondrial Eve. Its a gene passed down from mother to child in an unbroken line and through the mothers of those mothers, back until all lines converge on one woman. Her name was Sapphire Blackface from deep dark Africa. Okay, maybe her name wasn”t Sapphire, but you know what I mean. Now I want to put some “National Geographic,” on it.

According to the genetic and paleontological record, we only started to leave Africa between 60,000 and 70,000 years ago. What set this in motion is uncertain, but we think it has something to do with major climatic shifts that were happening around that time—a sudden cooling in the Earth’s climate driven by the onset of one of the worst parts of the last Ice Age. This cold snap would have made life difficult for our African ancestors, and the genetic evidence points to a sharp reduction in population size around this time. In fact, the human population likely dropped to fewer than 10,000. We were holding on by a thread. Once the climate started to improve, after 70,000 years ago, we came back from this near-extinction event. The population expanded, and some intrepid explorers ventured beyond Africa. The earliest people to colonize the Eurasian landmass likely did so across the Bab-al-Mandab Strait separating present-day Yemen from Djibouti. These early beachcombers expanded rapidly along the coast to India, and reached Southeast Asia and Australia by 50,000 years ago. The first great foray of our species beyond Africa had led us all the way across the globe. Slightly later, a little after 50,000 years ago, a second group appears to have set out on an inland trek, leaving behind the certainties of life in the tropics to head out into the Middle East and southern Central Asia. From these base camps, they were poised to colonize the northern latitudes of Asia, Europe, and beyond.” The second group would turn into our white babies due to nature no longer having to protect you from the sun, but keep you warm from the cold. Your hair became straight and layered to keep your brain from freezing and your nostrils narrowed so the cold would not destroy your lungs. You no longer needed as much melanin to protect you because you stayed hidden from the sun by covering yourselves in animal skins and taking shelter in the caves that kept you warm. So you see Steve, you not really a part of another race, you just a light skinned black man. All those accomplishments you talking about were done by the sons and daughters of migrating black people.

Setting It On Fire

Steven Arnold King, you was born in 1949, just 4 years after the most devastating war humanity had ever seen. Over 80 million people were killed. It was started by a member of your sub-group as you like to call yourself, but we know the real story right? 80 years before that on this continent an estimated 800,000 people were killed in a Civil War deciding if your sub-group would be able to keep the children of the black people who bore your race as slaves. Indeed, the children of the black men and women who migrated to northern Europe and Asia have done somethings. I estimate they have killed 10 out of every 100 human beings ever born. It’s almost biblical Steve. Matthew: 10:21 – “Brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death.” Anywho, lets change gears here. From your naive statement, I can see you don’t know much about world history, so let’s talk about US history. Without the help of Sacagewea, a brown women the North West passage would have never been found. These are the children of black migrants that crossed the land bridge during the end of an ice age some 40,000 years ago. Lewis Howard Latimore, who invented the filament that the first light bulbs used. Patricia Bath, who patented eye laser surgery. Hidden Figures mathmaticians, Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who calculated flight trajectories for Project Mercury, NASA supervisor and mathematician Dorothy Vaughan and Janelle Monáe a NASA engineer. I could go on and on but I will let you listen to a song by Stevie Wonder. He has sold over 100 million records worldwide, which placed him among the best-selling music artists of all time and has won 25 Grammy Awards, making him one of the most awarded artists of all time. I just want to say one thing before I leave.. ” Son, I want you to come to me before you go out there making stupid statements about yo family. Now I’m gonna have to punish you. Now that I have ripped you a new one, I want you to put the old one on the ground in front of that statue at the Market Street Park. Don’t forget to bring the Tiki torches and matches.
