WOKE-ISM AND THE WHITENESS OF CANCEL CULTURE

Submitted by Pachamama

A sign of the nature of these times is the imposition of a new etymology. Whether it is ‘woke-ism’, on the one side, or ‘cancel culture’, on the other, the willful misguidance is no less profound. “Whiteness” is generally defined as being a political construction, a fiction.

In this piece we will attempt to tease out, or even capture, an ‘ahistorical’ moment where a faux progressivism pretends to confront long-held establishment lies, wickedness – across the board.

This convergence of interests should properly be the province of academia and particularly those from the Frankfurt School of critical social theory. Unfortunately though, It has long-failed to help us rethink or reform the social critiques of Marxism, as they had promised, even as Marx gave the ‘soft touch’ to racism and slavery; has not led to the rejection of mainstream political views; its tepid criticisms of capitalism have made it no less vicious; there has been no substantive ‘liberation’ of humanoids anywhere; while domination and exploitation continue at an algorithmic pace.

Some, with rightness, may suggest that woke-ism is deeply culturally bound. Others are reticent to jettison certain unrealities. Others are entrenched in the misbelief, or fear, that there will be some meeting of the minds at a point of moderation. Yet others wrongly look to this divine age of technological innovation to deliver mankind. In reality they intend that establishment systems should only be tinkered with on the margins if at all, but never radically transformed, far less prevent the new formations of the old systems of subjugation now reemerging as more virulent manifestations of technological oppression.

It is however clear that the perceived meanings of woke-ism and ‘Whiteness’ can never comfortably coexisted. For the first is predicated on the existence of what is real, presumably, while the other is entirely based on a deep and wide culture of unreality. An unreality not based within the longer evolution of humanoids.

Those who suggested that the removal of Horatio Nelson from the top of Broad Street was an attempt to ‘cancel’ their ‘culture’ are ideologically well-connected to the Proud Boys and other White supremacist forces in the United States of America, and elsewhere. We include Black lackeys in high places, like ‘a Johnny’ Muh Boy as the quintessentially modern-day house niggers! But still, its mere removal only flirts with the symbolic. The same is true about removals from landscapes elsewhere as well.

And for the lack of historical memory, eminently demonstrated by many on the side of Black Lives Matter, prevents a better understanding of their own arguments. This requires, amongst other things, taking a hard look at the ways in which that movement has been appropriated, internally and externally, by a wide range of interests included the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) of the United States of America, no less. It’s a ‘crying shame’ that even the marketing and recruitment of CIA agents, as an historically racist organization, have now fully appropriated wokeness.

There was a time when ‘whiteness’ meant something entirely different. It denoted somebody who was spiritual. It had nothing to do with pigmentation or ‘pinkness’. At that time all the ‘white’ people were Black, there was nobody else around.

But etymology is a linguistic bitch. People who argue that others seek to cancel their culture are ignorantly doubling-down on all the crimes committed in the name of the political construction which is Whiteness as if seeking to eternally be in a march to war against 90% of Earth’s peoples.

When those who represent ‘Whiteness’ talk about the cancellation of culture, or the irrational moderation of just demands, a level of credibility should be brought to the table based on the real and continuing cancelling which White people and their agents have committed for millennia. In the absence of such an accounting there can be no legitimate claims to a genocidal culture still being constructed and maintained on the bones of others.

  • I think the question we have to ask as Black people, is how do we regain the respectability, we once held prior to the Transatlantic Slave Trade? Because prior to the Transatlantic Slave Trade the Race of Black was looked upon favorably, but as the European Chattel Slavery started to developed, racist literature started to emerged characterizing the Race of Black in the most animalistic of terms.

    You want respectability get up and go to work especially if you dont have to, give your kids somebody to look up to that is all the respect you should need but if you are craving more.

    “In the first place, the rulers of neo-colonial States derive their authority to govern, not from the will of the people, but from the support which they obtain from their neo-colonialist masters. They have therefore little interest in developing education, strengthening the bargaining power of their workers employed by expatriate firms, or indeed of taking any step which would challenge the colonial pattern of commerce and industry, which it is the object of neo-colonialism to preserve. ‘Aid’, therefore, to a neo-colonial State is merely a revolving credit, paid by the neo-colonial master, passing through the neo-colonial State and returning to the neo-colonial master in the form of increased profits.” Nkhrumah

    Wokeness and Cancel cancel are part of the propaganda wars in western hemisphere by babylon’s finest spies and biased media.

    I have to confess that I started all of this nonsense by posting the following videos from the new negroes soundtrack which blew the white boys minds and put them on the back foot and in defence mode
    Woke as Me

    Racism 2.0

    White folks have traced the term “woke” to jazz artists but my own definition of woke is “enlightenment” or “spiritual awakening” as per buddhism and internal practises of meditation etc.

    White folks are paro about becoming a minority in Amerikkka as they think black folks will discriminate against them like in Planet of Apes original movie. The experiment of impregnating slaves in Americas has given black children with nappy hair and in Europe it has given over a longer time it has given white jews with jewfros and gypsies who worship black madonna. American land belongs to the native Americans who are are more like reddish brown skinned indigenous South American tribes and may be related to Asian Indians down the line.

    The Cancel Culture was another trope against Rightwing speakers in University, which has been highjacked to say cancelling Racist teachers and speakers is a breach freedom of speech or 1st amendment rights.

    I will use the philosophy, vision and ideology of two men who saw the road forward for the ANC from different angles of vision, to make my point regarding the push forward to address this racial divide between Black and White.

    Now I believe that the push forward to address the racial polarization between White and Black, must be approach with the same kind of inclusive vision Nelson Mandela held for ANC and South Africa.

    Nelson Mandela, believe as I do today, that the way forward for South Africa and the harmony between White and Black, must included Black, White, Indian and Colors, but Stephen Biko, believed as some do here today, that Black and Black exclusively, must be the ones to determine their own destiny, and no outside elements must be allowed into help solved the problem of our racial disharmony.

    Kiki, does that “fear” exist primarily in Europe and the USA or is it a fear on the ‘global’ scale?

    Whites are already outnumbered, significantly, at the global level.

    Just do a population count of the various Chinese and East Indian ethnic groups found right across the globe.

    Blacks or people of African descent represent a minority on the global scale of population numbers.

    So how can we continue to so facilely speak of “The challenges Black people have to penetrate as a collective…?”

    That singularity of similar pigmentation does NOT define our ideology, politics, social beliefs or any other personal/psychological trait and as such there is really no ‘collective’ … unless and until a gun (danger) is pointed at our head by a racist white hand (establishment persona).

    The dynamics of slavery obviously sets a theme of the powerful over the powerless enslaved …. but just as naturally history (Biblical dogma, no less) has boldly shown how those previously captive and subservient have integrated to society and risen to positions of absolute power…

    If we are honest we can see that the ‘collective’ is truly a figment of power wielded as needed to bash in one establishment structure merely to install another … it works well … until it doesnt!

    .And further honesty jettisons the concept that “our leaders have a responsibility to create a climate our people are exposed to our history etc,”.

    How MUCH more do we need to be led to another river of knowledge for water ??? … when we are bathed endlessly from the massive waterfall called the internet!!

    We can drink as much as we want, good sir!

    The only “drift” I can see is our mindless efforts to mimic the behaviours and practices of out white brethren : we want their straight hair (and spend endlessly in salons for it), we want their skins tones (and spend more for that too); we want their power over others (and we gyrate corruptly to achieve that)…

    In short too many want to be them in tone and practice … when we need to be unlike their wanton crassness ..

    But that ain’t how human behaviour works ….

    So let the fight continue. There is room for all of us …

    But he was not that stupid as to expect its realization through aping the white man’s brand of “Christianity”.

    Black people in the Diaspora ought to stop aping the white man’s religious bullshi**t and form their own Movement of Salvation of their sorry souls with Marcus Mosiah Garvey (MMG) their Messiah instead of some fictitious Jewish character called Jesus.

    It is understandable why earlier generations thought the way they did.
    It is frightening to actually read and observe how those of younger generations think. It makes one shiver.
    Underlying much of the fancy scribblings,is a hopeless, defeatist, surrender to Eurocentric thinking
    . When read critically the thinking is embarrassingly littered with exactly how Massa wants us to think.
    We keep being trapped into what is obviously an attempt at weak intellectual sophistication.’
    From reading the responses to this article, one can easily discern the struggles that you and others would have understanding why so many of us are like balloons; let go to be taken wherever and however the wind blows.
    It appears we are always more comfortable accepting the crumbs from the table.
    It is obvious that we have not truly studied the works of truly progressive Black thinkers . We are still blaming ourselves for atrocities that were inflicted on us.
    Some of these responses to this article are painful to read.
    Your persistence and consistence in attempting to educate us , is a debt that can never be repaid. I personally, have not encountered such brilliance in our country for several decades. It’s the closest , I have read since the late 60s.
    I can only hope that there are people, who may not necessarily comment on BU, who read your contributions.

    frightening indeed, what keeps me going are the volumes of information and once unavailable knowledge that was presented to me as a welcomed gift……the more the trifling display themselves, the more it comes back to me what inner troubles and torments the elderly suffered before they passed on and left not understanding why…….but now some of their descendants take great pleasure displaying themselves as fools….that is what disconnect causes, then they run out of steam and petty thoughts until next time..

    i refuse to let the younger generation 40 years and younger who are struggling to find self, be drawn into battles with personal demons unnecessarily….we owe them that much….I saw personally what that did to people in the diaspora and it’s nothing pretty…

    sad that we have all the tools available that our recent foreparents did not have and either misuse or ignore them..,,and ramble on and on about nothing…they believe they got all the time in the world, but they don’t…as i said, some will have to be given up, it’s their self-sacrifice, voluntary, they spent years on BU letting everyone know who they are, with pride.

    “It works until it doesn’t”!

    @Skinner, are our youth truly more ‘hopelessly defeatist’ than those of earlier more turbulent years???

    Based on the activities seen across media (particularly social media) there certainly appears to be quite assertive, radical and well educated youths carrying the fight forward.

    That we see so many who ‘surrender to Eurocentric thinking’ as you opined is also a function of the pervasive reach of social media… if u have stats to show that MORE lackeys abound today then in previous times then please cite them …. because the anecdotal references also suggest that Black folks are quite radical and assertive in their Blackness but also more keenly aware of how BEST to harmonize their disdain for the established order and yet inculcate themselves within that order.

    I was merely referencing some of the responses to the said article. I stand by what I said: While one can understand the thinking of earlier generations, it is difficult to understand why later or more present generations are caught in what is essentially colonialist thinking.
    Indeed if you were to peruse articles on race on BU, you may get a clearer understanding of what I am trying to say.
    As for statistics , I have none. I would not bother to ask you if you have any for your positions.
    In other words there is still a cause for concern. Otherwise some of the responses would have not been so profoundly backward.

  • For those who know no better, there is nothing called diminishing world resources, just as it was 60 years ago, the potential material resources are still great on the continent, it’s the greedy thieves as usual spreading false information to take what is not theirs and pauperize the continent and those Africans living in the diaspora.

    William…as we knew all along.

    “To start with, for the first time in human history the potential material resources of the world are so great that there is no need for there to be rich and poor. It is only the organisation to deploy these potential resources that is lacking. Effective world pressure can force such a redeployment, but world pressure is
    not exercised by appeals, however eloquent, or by arguments, however convincing. It is only achieved by deeds. It is necessary to secure a world realignment so that those who are at the moment the helpless victims of a system will be able in the future to exert a counter pressure. Such counter pressures do not
    lead to war. On the contrary, it is often their absence which constitutes the threat to peace.” Nkrumah

    I would agree with you that it is within the best interest of each and everyone Black person to take the steps to rid his or her self of the psychological trauma and mental conditioning, that still afflicts those of us who refused to take the time to understand that our own self-destructive behaviour is somehow intricately interwoven with our enslavement.

    But how does that understanding of our past, change the fact that for there to be any real change in the racist attitude and condition of those towards people of color; it must first start with the ones who are promoting the racist and extremist views and ideologies?

    So my thinking goes back to the philosophy of Nelson Mandela, who believed that the only way to achieved racial harmony is through the Inclusion of all races, to solve the problem of our racial disharmony.
