This from a neo-conniving right wing tool who advocates war, but couldn't get into the military for all the multiple cysts on his big fat, pale, flabby, diseased, nasty, NAZI a$$? HA! Please! Rush just needs to stop the hating! Just hateful! He just needs Jesus in his wretched life, that's what!

Francis L. Holland, Esq.

Over at the Afrosphere blog, where I posted arguing that we should forever refuse to use the word "race," except when referring to it as "the pseudo-scientific fallacious white supremacist concept of 'race,' " someone argued that Blacks might scientifically be effectively something like a sub-species or "breed" of the human species, like the difference between two groups of dogs.

I have insisted that the pseudo-scientific word "race" is a white supremacists' word created as a badge of inferiority to rationalize the subjugation and enslavement of Black people.

Some have asserted that the word "race" may have some biological basis after all, because although Blacks may not be a separate but equal species of humans, it may be scientifically correct to assert that we are a something like a sub-breed or "sub-species" of humans.

I will NEVER, EVER, refer to us as a separate "race" or a "separate" "sub-species," of humans because (1) it is not scientifically compelled by the evidence and (2) IT IS NOT IN OUR POLITICAL INTERESTS! In fact it is diametrically opposed to our political interests.

My mother, the late Dr. Rachel V. Holland, who died in 1997, was college professor who taught Sociology for 20 years. She focused on teaching about what was then called "racism," but is now coming to be called Extreme Color-Arousal.

Throughout her twenty years of teaching, my mother taught me and all of her students this fundamental principle of Black existence in America, paraphrasing:

"For hundreds of years, whites have perpetuated an argument that Blacks were from a separate and inferior race for the purpose of justifying our enslavement and segregation. Every argument about what "race" Blacks are from and what are the "inherent biological characteristics" of the "Black race" is a politically-motivated attempt by white people to demean Black people, and so you should NEVER engage in arguments about the genetic content of the Black race.

You cannot win this argument, because as soon as you concede that there is ANY scientific reason to engage in this pseudo-scientific "genetics" battle, you have already lost the political war."

There are more whites than there are Blacks in the United States, and many of them have endless energy to discuss and debate the genetic basis of Blacks' inferiority. The discussion itself maligns Blacks and so the white supremacists win for so long as the public believes there is any reason to have the discussion at all. Thankfully, many white now accept the fact that "There is only one race - the human race!" Let's not go backward politically, with Blacks looking to defend the word "race" just so that they can continue to call others "racist" instead of adopting the more scientifically descriptive term "Extreme Color Arousal."

Whites (and Blacks) will NEVER, EVER be able to believe that a separate Black "race" is nonetheless equal.

So, although biologically we could argue over whether Blacks are perhaps a "sub-species" of humans, it ought to be apparent that that is not our best argument for equality! Language matters. When you concede that you are "sub" you linguistically concede that you are "lower-than" on a hierarchy, even if you could (and will have to) argue for thousands of years that this is not what was intended.

If those who disagree with me agree that "race" is not correct and they believe that "sub-species" is more correct, then we have to decide which of the new terms - skin-color or sub-species - can help us move to the next level in America. I think it's obvious that we can get further by insisting that whites abuse us aroused by our skin-color rather than saying that whites abuse us because we are from a separate "sub-species." If we are so foolish as to concede that we are we are from a separate race OR "sub-species" then perhaps we deserve to be abused!

The answer is simple. We must insist, at every turn, that the reason that whites discriminate against us has nothing to do with the fallacious "race" or "sub-species" terms and has EVERYTHING to do with their antagonistic attitude toward our "skin-color."

This linguistic struggle is as important as insisting that we are Blacks instead of "Negroes" or "Colored." Words matter. Defining ourselves instead of being defined by others matters. The way that we choose to define our struggle with whites matters precisely because we are powerful when we assert the right and the power to define our struggle and ourselves.

We can make a huge step forward in decolonizing our minds if we stop using the term "racism" and instead use the term Extreme Color-Aroused Antagonism. The word "extreme" in this term also makes it clear that we are not calling "everybody a racist," but are acknowledging, quite scientifically, the gradations among those who are color-aroused.

The word "race" is not our chosen definition of ourselves; it is a white supremacist definition that we have passively accepted. To the degree that we have made it our own and let it define us, it is like the slave name that Asabagna rejected when he assumed the name Asabagna. The word "race" is politically analogous to the slave name that Cassius Clay rejected when he insisted on being called "Muhammad Ali." Muhammad Ali no longer wanted to be defined by the badges of inferiority sub-humanity created for Blacks during the time of slavery. When he insisted on being called Muhammad Ali, it was revolutionary in America, just as insisting on being called "Black people" rather than "the Black race" will be revolutionary awakening for Black people as well as white people.

Muhammad Ali did not become "the greatest" simply by winning in the boxing ring. He became the greatest by insisting on defining his own reality in relation to white American.

If Muhammad Ali had the courage in the 1960's to abandon a slave name and insist on defining himself and his relation to white people, surely we can find the courage to insist that we are discriminated against because of our "skin-color" and not because of our "race" and "racism." We can put the locus and focus of this problem back where it belongs - on white people's Extreme Color Arousal - rather than on Black people's "inferior "racial" characteristics." In any case, like the name Cassius Clay vs. the name Muhammad Ali, it's our choice to make.

Let me make it clear that this IS NOT an argument for or about "color-blindness." Arguments about "race" actually take the focus off our of color difference, which is obvious, and puts the focus on unspecified "racial differences," a pseudo-scientific myth that has been used by white supremacists to compel and perpetuate our separate and unequal status in America.

Big Bill

Obama is such a white boy. Hell, if he wasn't raised by poor white folks he would be Jack and Jill and Boule fo' sho'. Give me a real black man for president, not some social climbing scrawny fool who can't even talk like a brutha. Hanging out with those hi yella hi tone folks from DC and Atlanta. Gimme a real brutha any day of the week. He really is a "Magic Negro", Rush got that right.

berrybrowne

i guess we can't get that mad because it's fine with obama himself, right? i'm still trying to sort out my feelings on 1) his annoying, "that's just comedy, guys" response and limbaugh's pleased, "that's how 'you guys'" should respond to race-based humor reply; and 2) the washingtonpost headline article that explores how obama is reaching out to black voters by publicly criticizing us, a la mr. cosby.

come on barack, i'm trying to pull for you...

Me

Rush didnt make that song. It was a spinoff from an article written in the LA Times called "Obama, the Magic Negro" written by David Ehrenstein.

He plays it to anger Al Sharpton who supposedly doesnt support Barack.

Rush actually regularly refers to Barack as "Godlike for the Godless".

Karim

Limbaugh is an racist scumbag who needs to be pulled, and until he is, I say boycott his sponsors.

Chris M

This doesn't have anything to do with the post, but I couldn't find any contact info for you elsewhere. I just thought that you'd be interested to know that eBay is advertising Black Slaves:

I love Rush! Suck it pansies!

trevjr

Amazing. As a 50 year black man, this video almost brought me to tears. That there is so much hate in this world is depressing.
Please tell me they did not get a black man to sing on that.they go after hiphop and rap but this is OK because he said negro instead of nigger. No Rush will not be fired or even chastized for this. And they say there is no more racism these days?
