Blackface performers are, “…the filthy scum of white society, who have stolen from us a complexion denied them by nature, in which to make money, and pander to the corrupt taste of their white fellow citizens.” — Frederick Douglass

So now we can’t even enjoy a sporting event without racism?

I’m not talking about Donald Sterling, the racist former owner of The Los Angeles Clippers, I’m referring to the World Cup match between Germany and Ghana where ignorant German fans wore black-painted faces in a bigoted attempt to poke fun at Ghanaian soccer players.

It wasn’t funny. It’s 2014 and we’re still dealing with the remnants of blackface 180 years after white actors first performed in blackface in New York theaters.

Germany has now placed racism on an international stage again. You may have heard about the 1936 Berlin Olympics where track star Jesse Owen ruined Hitler’s plans of German sporting domination.

I’m not sure officials can regulate bigotry in the stands, but World Cup soccer’s governing body, FIFA, has started an investigation into racial discrimination.

Fare, an anti-discrimination organization, sent a blistering report to FIFA as a result of several racial incidents during the World Cup.

    Fuck white people, I can’t stand them. White people are some of the most un-evolved people on the earth. You can barely call them people. They are animals with no souls. The devil finds the whites bodies as a easy vessel to occupy. Lets not forget where whites came from. They are a mix race of blacks and neanderthals. It shows in their behavior and in the way they still treat people like they still have to fight over their fresh kill. God never ment for our people to associate with them.
    With that out I now know what I am going to be for Halloween this year. I am going to go in white face and profile all the black children accusing them of stealing candy from peoples homes. That or I am going to go as a KKK member running for president on the Republikkkan ticken.

    Thomas Hobbes said that”man is selfish,man is wicked;he is always vaing against one another”Racism springs from selfishness,wickedness and ignorance. Since there will always be ignorant people,there will always be racist.It IS appropriate to resist racism.One of the lines of resistance is through self improvement.The Aryans can no longer feel superior to the contemporary Chinese as they used to do to their previous generation. Unless we blacks buckle_up,as the Chinese have done,the ignorance and wickedness of the Aryans will continue to find expression in the denigration of the black race

    The biggest mistake we ever made was selling the lie of equality and a post racial world to our children. We have indulged in every filthy thing pop culture has to offer, spent billions of dollars trying to buy acceptance and friendship, allowed television to mold our children and what do we have to show for it? Nothing but a lost and confused generation. We should have listened to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and Minister Farrakhan and built a new reality for ourselves and stop expecting our enemy to change. We must overcome our childish bickering and really sit down and map out a future for ourselves. Begging others to accept us and assimilation obviously does not work.
