Thugs, Thug Life and Their Future as CEOS by Kyle Phoenix




Part of the delusion of "thuggery" and their supporters is that they can be anything because of "the realness" when in fact they haven't become anything. It takes no skill, no study, no patience, no work, no integrity, no accountability, no responsibility to be a "thug nigga". What are the requirements: Black or Latino, low education, moving/walking/acting in a certain way, bad grammar, tattoos, violent tendencies, outside the social norms that over 90% of us participate in. The rest of us keep the lights on, the trains on time, highways intact, stores full of products and employees, businesses open, cell phone companies up and running and a thug well he..........holds it down.

Exactly what is he holding down? 

When has a sitting President ever said, "I'm not sure how to handle a crisis of disaster level proportions in Oklahoma or the Middle East or terrorists, let me ask the Thug Coalition."

What a thug really represents is deep remnants of slavery, when expectations of men of color were so lowered that if he did any small thing, he was glorified for little and next to nothing.  Because all the glory was the fact that he was standing there....and could fuck.  The most basic of human body-ness. What they represent is the failure of the educational system and the prison pipeline where not only can't Leroy read, no one wants to try and help him, he's then labelled a "thug gonnabe" by the 3rd grade and he gets to slide into the Achievement Gap and the separate Special Ed. classroom (gray walls, tight desks, non-caring teachers) so that by the time he's a teenager and acting out we have his cell, which the industry makes $50,000 a year off of, ready, willing and able to accommodate him in.

Now that thug who's done a "lil' something illegal" he's subsidizing over $1 million dollars in revenue from the salaries of all the people who need him to be nothing but a thug so they can arrest him (cops), prosecute him, hold him (bailiffs), process him (clerks, adjudicate him (judges), hold him some more (bailiffs and correction officers), jail house him (construction team that built and maintains the prison) and eventually the Warden. Each thug is worth 1 million on the open USA market so that's why there's such an investment in Black and Latino men identifying as thugs---you get say 5 million of them to believe that they are anything but a neo-slave, that's billions of dollars in instant, replenish-able revenue---making money faster than cotton fields. Oh, yeah then while we got a good thug in prison we make him work for some of the largest companies in the country, earning 12 cents an hour. ( TWELVE CENTS AND HOUR.  No, you really have to think about that in a 40 hour week, building circuit boards, making customer service calls, acting as a catalog phone rep where in the real world at a not so great job it's at least $10 an hour.)

Yeah, thug life got that future going---well on his way to CEO of a Fortune 500 company with his deep understanding of market rates, corporate culture, sales force managing, shareholder stock price distribution and dividends----oh, wait he dropped out of high school to maintain thugness---he's got Tupac's lyrics memorized but the multiplication table is still a mystery.....well, then everyone knows that when we open up Forbes and Entrepreneur magazine it's lined page to page with thugs. 

Let us also not forget that thug perception has caused a lot of grief when people can't see past that perception---Trayvon, Sean Bell, yeah, keeping it real has no ramifications for the rest of us just walking along, eating some Skittles, out at a party.......
The Nation sees no problem with their being thugs because it keeps a social group from ever demanding more, keeps billions churning through the criminal justice system and incidentally also keeps billions in the education system as lots of WHite folk get to be teachers starting at $40k a year to administer "meh" level educations to children of color.  That might seem like a crime until you look at it from someone who gets to use that ever increasing 40K to buy a car, a house, etc. as long as they aren't tasked, financially, like most businesses with the outcome of their product.  A large percentage of teachers are skating through in lifelong jobs because we think that failure IS an option....cause we got that prison system lined up so the really mad thugs don't end up in your neighborhood too often.  I'm not even going to get into how this inherent contradiction of thug good, nigga good, thug bad, nigga bad is messing up the perceptual reality of White women who just want to make a good cinnabun and dont' know what's right to say, what's wrong, what's good, what's bad because them niggas got it going on, right, ma nigga? know what i mean, ma nigga? feel me, ma nigga?........but I digress,

The worse part is not when you tell others the lie, because they can see you're crazy. It's when you tell it to yourself or to a man just so he'll get naked with you....and give you that good Mandingo slave time lovin'.....cause that's what he's good for, right?  Stud service.  Keepin' it real.  My nigga.

Gay Is The New Black If You're White Because..........by Kyle Phoenix



Gay being the new Black is because White people have never been niggers.  The closest they have to relate is Germany/Jews and Italians, Polish, Irish in America (but then they got to default to White).  Suddenly though when White men came out as gay they were discriminated against by something they were intrinsically---not an ethnicity or religion that you could lie about but by something they can't shed.  To shed it would be to contradict their internalized sense of privilege and entitlement that says "I am a White man therefore I am ok."




Everything within Western civilization authenticates, supports and adheres to that precept.  But when one is "gay"---a White construct, which is why so many Whites adhere to it and it is discriminated against---White, privilege human beings look around to try and compare and figure out what this is and they realize---"Holy shit!  They've made me into a social nigger."  Where one can live, love, breathe, have children, work, control money, health care---holy shit a White man can be transformed into a nigger with just the admittance of who he is and he can never shed that lack of anonymity.  The only thing to do is to guilt White people back at the same time that one seeks allies (other niggerized folk.)

Now White people turn to each other---and the most vicious thing you can say to a White person is that they're a racist (unless they enjoy and extol being one) they will rebel against that because people of color mean racist by action, White people see racism as character.  So they can't be racist,right?  And if I want to convince people to side with me I press their deepest, most obvious Western civilization button---race.

One, you're treating me like a nigger---and our whole reality is predicated on White people not being ever treated like niggers.  And two, if you treat me like a nigger then you're racist....and White people will pass laws, build walls, shoot on sight but never admit to racism.

So gay is the new Black to convince White people to convince themselves that being a nigger, unless you are a nigger, is wrong.  Because then the obvious question would be, if you're so concerned with mis-perceptive discrimination based on sexuality, where was your anti-nigger protesting and legislating for Black and Latino issues yesterday and how come you're not at the rallies for Black and Latino issues, with your fine gay self, today?
