"I pledge allegience to my black people"

A Nation of Islam activist teaches his 7 year-old daughter to play the "race card". Talk about getting a head start on hate!

Disgusting.

Read on.....

__________


One of the nation's fastest-rising poetry prodigies is a 7-year-old New York girl whose poisonous demagogic advocacy of black separatism makes Al Sharpton look like Mister Rogers.

Autum Ashante' of Mount Vernon, N.Y., has performed at HBO's Def Poetry Jam, The Cotton Club in L.A., The Apollo Theater in Harlem, the African Street Festival, Caroline's on Broadway, the Russell Simmons Phat Farm Fashion Show, Steve Harvey's "Big Time," a prestigious Grammy Foundation event, and at universities and other venues across the country. She recites her verses not only in English, but also in fluent Swahili and Arabic (she attended the Islamic Darul Arkam School in Mount Vernon).

Autum has appeared at a tribute to black nationalist Marcus Garvey, America-bashing 9/11 conspiracy-monger Amiri Baraka's annual family cookout and the extremist New Black Panther Party's Million Youth March. The city of New York honored her with a proclamation for inspiring "her peers, as well as adults, while also demonstrating the power of a father's love, the importance of education and the limitless boundaries of the human mind." New York City councilwoman Yvette Clark called her "one of the most precious young talents that this world has ever known."


Most recently, as New York Post education reporter David Andreatta reported this weekend, she was invited to perform at public middle and high schools in Peekskill, N.Y., for Black History Month.

Here, in full, is what precious little Autum -- groomed by her single father, Batin Ashante, a Nation of Islam poet/activist -- spewed:

White Nationalism Put U In Bondage

White nationalism is what put you in bondage
Pirate and vampires like Columbus, Morgan, and Darwin
Drank the blood of the sheep, trampled all over them with
Steel, tricks and deceit.
Nothing has changed take a look in our streets
The mis-education of she and Hegro -- leaves you on your knee2grow
Black lands taken from your hands, by vampires with no remorse
They took the gold, the wisdom and all of the storytellers
They took the black women, with the black man weak
Made to watch as they changed the paradigm
Of our village
They killed the blind, they killed the lazy, they went
So far as to kill the unborn baby
Yeah White nationalism is what put you in bondage
Pirates and vampires like Columbus, Morgan, and Darwin
They drank the blood of the sheep, trampled all over them with
Steel laden feet, throw in the tricks alcohol and deceit.
Nothing has changed take a look at our streets.


Autum's performance also included commanding white students to remain seated as she led black students in a recitation of the "Black Child's Pledge," by Black Panther Shirley Williams, which reads in part:

I pledge allegiance to my Black People.

I pledge to develop my mind and body to the greatest extent possible.

I will learn all that I can in order to give my best to my People in their struggle for liberation.

. . . I will discipline myself to direct my energies thoughtfully and constructively rather than wasting them in idle hatred.

I will train myself never to hurt or allow others to harm my Black brothers and sisters . . .

These principles I pledge to practice daily and to teach them to others in order to unite my People.


Complaints from shocked students and parents led to a tape-recorded apology sent to all parents apologizing for the performance. Autum's father condemned white district officials as "racist crackers." Autum defended her poem by explaining to the Westchester Journal News that white people are "devils and they should be gone. We should be away from them and still be in Africa."

And make note of this: The official who invited Autum to speak, Melvin Bolden, is a public school music teacher, Peekskill councilman and producer of her first spoken word album.

Who is surprised? If you set aside a separate holiday for Black History Month in the public schools, if you set aside separate graduation ceremonies, college dorms, academic departments, recruiting programs, and government contracts and subcontracts by race, you send a message that hard-core racial separatism is not only acceptable -- but desired.

Autum Ashante' is the natural offspring of militant multiculturalism and government-sanctioned identity politics. We reap what we sow.

_____________

As I said... disgusting.

Mike

A very unsurprising response from the likes of you. But I'll bite anyway.

You actually think what's going on in this little girl's head is HEALTHY?....

Never mind.... I'm sure you probably do.

Out of the mouths of babes

I distinctly remember that when I was eleven (and still a Christian), the list of people it was "ok" to hate included:
  • Murderers
  • Homosexuals
  • Devil Worshipers

Which of these subgroups are actually worthy of "hate"?

What's in her head may or may not be healthy, but maybe it's just a fleeting thought. I worry far more about what is (or isn't) being pounded into kid's minds on a nightly basis via the television.

Have you caught a case of bonehead's "Chronic Irrelevancy Syndrome"?...

I didn't know we were talking about the unwarranted hate that is sometimes taught by "extremist christians".

I am talking about the unwarranted hate that is being taught to this poor 7 year-old girl by her obviously extremist father, and furthermore, how that same hate is being spread by her numerous public appearances.

When I was working in Louisiana, I met a guy from your neck-o-the-woods (Jaw'ja), who proudly showed me a pic of the bumper sticker on his Harley's saddlebags: "If we'd known ya'll were gonna be this much trouble, we'd of picked our own damned cotton".

How many parents are infecting their kids with that kind of racist hateful sentiment, versus the kind you're decrying in this thread? I'd venture to say the ratio is somewhat skewed toward one side and not the other.

Pretty sad that this little girl is being taught to hate so much at such an impressionable age.

Mike, I agree that this is a sad course of thinking and public speaking to send a child on. I think it's important to have a sense of what has gone down in the past but it should be balanced. AFAIK, most of the Africans that slave traders got hold of were traded to them by other Africans who liked the idea of getting rid of enemies and getting some cool stuff at the same time.

And if you want to see lousy treatment of black people, check out today's Africa.

Morgan Freeman was on 60 Minutes a while back saying, among other things, that he didn't want a "black history month." He asked Mike Wallace if he wanted a "Jewish history month." Wallace said no. Freeman is a class act, IMO, in addition to being one ballsy actor. Let us hope his style of thinking propagates.

I gotta agree with this well put point here.
If her Dad is a bigoted dope...IF. There's still a chance that a prodigal child who has the talent to write like this; will see through some of the lies she is tought and become a prosperous person. TBL Agree or not; that is an amazing poem.

Take home message:

It's ok for black people to be racist because there are white racists.

Congratulations peroxide, you clear up these messy conundrums so well.

Yep.

Equally disgusting. I'm glad they're on trial, and I hope they are punished harshly.

Unfortunately, this little girl's father can't be put on trial for what he's teaching his daughter. "Astounding stupidity" is still legal.

Mike

Yes.

Finally, something we can agree on tonight.

"If he is a bigoted dope?!?!"......

"IF????"....

Are you serious?....

Perhaps you missed this part:

Autum's father condemned white district officials as "racist crackers." Autum defended her poem by explaining to the Westchester Journal News that white people are "devils and they should be gone. We should be away from them and still be in Africa."

Where else would a 7 year-old girl being raised by her single father, who is a Nation of Islam activist, have learned such racist drivel?

"IF????".....

Mike
