"They don't think it be like it is," baseball player Oscar Gamble once eloquently offered, "but it do." And, to quote Denzel Washington, "If you don't read the newspaper you're uninformed, if you do read it, you're misinformed." I was transcribing some notes from an old notebook I was filling up around 6 years ago and while reading my previous thoughts on what seemed to be a rise in populist attitudes, cults of personality and a steady increase in divide and conquer tactics it made me think a lot about what has filled that span of time. Thanks to incendiary media tactics and a growing cultural gap the country seems to have been swiftly fracturing itself meanwhile, with "race relations worse than they've been since the early 60's" it seems an odd time for a group that some media is calling "Black Supremacists" to be cozying up alongside some deplorable types who've earned the honorary title of "White Supremacists."

I mean, so long as you've not really read the history and just guessed based on how "people" with "opinions that matter" continually frame "how it really is."

This isn't the first time this has happened, of course. In fact, if you look back and see how this pattern repeats itself you'll notice some interesting patterns. Often you'll see "natural enemies" (or what the mainstream media attempts to paint as irrevocable adversaries) join arms against a common threat in order to shake off shared oppressors. One example from quite a while ago would be the unlikely, but not at all uneasy alliance between the American Nazi Party's George Lincoln Rockwell and prophet of the Nation of Islam's Elijah Muhammad, an seemingly odd kinship that is much mirrored by the mutual respect of some leaders of the White Nationalist community and that of Hotep's Black Nationalists.

George Lincoln Rockwell was the controversial leader of the American Nazi Party and in the early 60's one of his main goals was to negotiate a mutually beneficial truce between the ANP and the militant black nationalists of the Nation of Islam. Bear in mind, this is 1961 and the Black Panther party wouldn't be founded for another 5 years, so NOI was as militant and extremist a group of black nationalists to be found in the United States.

Fans of the so-called horseshoe theory will chalk this up to extremists having more in common despite the side of the spectrum they are on than moderates and centrists. That doesn't explain the whole picture though, I don't think. Rockwell was frank, pulling no punches when he told ANP members that the prophet Elijah Muhammad was a personage to be respected as he had: "gathered millions of the dirty, immoral, drunken, filthy-mouthed, lazy and repulsive people sneeringly called ‘niggers’ and inspired them to the point where they are clean, sober, honest, hard working, dignified, dedicated and admirable human beings in spite of their color […] Muhammad knows that mixing is a Jewish fraud and leads only to aggravation of the problems that it is supposed to solve […] I have talked to the Muslim leaders and am certain that a workable plan for separation of the races could be effected to the satisfaction of all concerned—except the communist-Jew agitators."

Believe it or not, even this instance wasn't some new and unprecedented happening. Marcus Garvey, considered one of the prototypical proponents of "Black Pride" and "Black Power" and "Black Liberation Theology" philosophy. Garvey's United Negro Improvement Association advocated a separationist policy. Garvey met with leaders of the KKK and afterward basically advocated that they should organize their own organizations similar to the KKK "so that they could look after their own interests" rather than appealing to white people to do it for them.

At another time, he spoke out if not in favor, at least expressing understanding of tribalism and ethnic-based in-group preference:

"You cannot blame any group of men, whether they are Chinese, Japanese, Anglo-Saxons or Frenchmen, for standing up for their interests or for organizing in their interest."

In fact, Garvey preferred the naked racialism, even racism, of certain of these groups to the shrouded patronizing micro-managing of well-meaning would-be white savior types:

"I regard the Klan, the Anglo-Saxon clubs and White American societies, as far as the Negro is concerned, as better friends of the race than all other groups of hypocritical whites put together."

<iframe width="640" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/FhE1-6oRl0E" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Garvey lost many followers with his bold, even outrageous stance in <a href="https://waverlyhs.weebly.com/us-history-blog-may-2015---may-2016/marcus-garvey-and-the-kkk-in-nebraska">meeting with KKK leaders</a> and as a result lost several followers. Two of the remaining, however, were Earl and Louise Little, the parents of Malcolm X.

Decades later when Rockwell showed up to attend a rally of the NOI, flanked by his ANP troopers, he was swarmed by black reporters intent on picking his brain, eager to discern his motives for appearing. Once again, pulling no punches he let the journalists in attendance know that he considered the NOI to be "black Nazis" and that he considered Muhammad something of a black Adolph Hitler. High praise from a man who regularly wears a swastika armband.

After this meeting, <a href="http://www.renegadetribune.com/when-george-lincoln-rockwell-elijah-muhammad-and-malcolm-x-shared-the-same-stage/">Rockwell decided to keep in touch with Malcolm X</a> via, "occasional telegrams and stormtrooper couriers when Malcolm was in the Washington area."

It was just a few months later in February of 1962 that Rockwell got his chance to not only attend but to speak to the assembly of NOI. Similar to the case with Garvey's audacious reach across the aisle, this didn't sit well with some in attendance, but the April 1962 issue of Muhammad Speaks made the Nation's "official perspective" on the matter no uncertain point:

"Mr. Rockwell (American Nazi Party) has spoken well. He has lived up to his name. He is not asking you and me to follow him. He endorsed the stand for self that you and I are taking. Why should not you applaud? No other white people want you to do such a thing. His own people will hurt him or try to hurt him, you heard what he said, just because they have taken a stand to see that you be separated to get justice and freedom. . . . What right have you to sit there and hold your hand when you know he is telling the truth. No, the trouble of it is you are scared to death! You don’t want the white slave master to say “I heard that you were there listening and enjoying the German Nazis or the White Circle leader.” What do we care if they are white? If they are speaking the truth for us, what do we care? We’ll stand on our heads and applaud!"

In 2016, the <a href="http://hotepnation.com/hotep-altright/">Hotep Nation announced</a> that they felt a similar kinship with many white nationalists in the Alt-Right camp at the time. To be clear, this article now bears a disclaimer regarding how Hotep leaders feel that Spencer and others have compromised the movement from shortly after that time, but that they still agree with many white nationalists on a multitude of points.

The article at Hotep Nation explains why Hoteps see eye to eye with many members of the White Nationalist community. Both of them are interested in self-determination and self-reliance, but also highly invested in their own community as well as opposing the "American people being pushed to the back in favor of foreign interests."

https://thegoldwater.com/news/24124-Liberals-Aghast-As-Kanye-West-Endorses-Donald-Trump-And

Hotep leaders, by the way, are among others "championing Trump's the nation from foreign terrorist entry into the United States" as well as the border wall. As for Nationalism:

"Hoteps want blacks to work towards having their own independent system where blacks do for blacks and don’t ask for handouts. The white nationalists and Alt-right want pretty much the same. […] Hoteps are sick of blacks complaining about white supremacy. Blacks talk about how their melanin is so magical but if this is true, then surely no melanin-recessive person should be able to stop you, right? Do you see how contradicting blacks are now?

Alt-Right is tired of hearing blacks cry about racial oppression, so naturally, they will support the Hoteps that push back on this type of behavior.

Hoteps believe that because of the internet, the many resources available to blacks, and the privilege of being an American, we no longer need to look to the so-called white man for help. We can do for our own. Is that so bad?

Besides, if America is so bad, why is everyone fighting to come here?"

A strict distinction is drawn in the addendum between genuine ethno-nationalists of whatever race who wish to put their own race first, advocate for their people, preserve their culture but still work for the common good of all humanity and the compromised sideshow of Spencer and Anglin's sideshow circus in a post-Pepe world. Ali Shakur (AKA "Hotep Jesus") argues that the narrative pushed by the media is using the Alt-Right in the same manner as they had been using Black Lives Matter, as a wedge in a divide and conquer strategy. Both in actuality being two sides of the same coin.

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

As for BLM, Hoteps consider them dangerous controlled opposition, who threaten black people in America. A similar sentiment to Marcus Garvey's feeling about the NAACP. Hoteps feel BLM is a cultural Marxist op perpetrated by "leftist" puppetmasters. It is a sugarcoated blue pill to pacify and placate:

"Do a Twitter search on Shaun King (white man pretending to be black), Deray, and whatever white person represents the far left in conjunction with the following terms: GMO, Monsanto, Federal Reserve Banking, IMF, or central banking. You’ll discover NOTHING. It will return ZERO results because these people don’t/won’t/can’t discuss these issues. It’s taboo on the Left. The Left still believes the official story on 9/11 – that’s how lost they are."

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Of course, after this article, despite much praise from self-identified white nationalists, Hotep received quite a bit of flak from other black people. Cries of "race traitor" and Uncle Tom were common.

<img src="https://media.8ch.net/file_store/cb5a7f7a050baddad819bc2dcf84d90e2519568fad91c5f59029c26892f9609c.png" style="max-height:640px;max-width:480px;">

"You know it’s bad when I’d rather align with a racist white than a cry baby black. Why? Because a white nationalist will agree that blacks have to do for blacks and stop complaining about what whitey did/does to them."

In a <a href="http://hotepnation.com/hotep-altright-race-traitor/">follow-up article</a>, Shakur has to explain in plain English for those who have the patience and comprehension and eyes to see what Hotep (Egyptian for "peace") Nation stands for:

Hotep Nation is a group of people looking to restore integrity to the term “hotep” as it has been smeared by left-wing black media and the likes. Hotep Nation is about self-empowerment, self-accountability, and independence for people of African descent. This is a “pro-black” movement for the benefit of all Earth people."

Shakur went on to invoke the ghost of George Lincoln Rockwell (like Malcolm X, assassinated by "one of his own" a former follower):

<blockquote>Nazi Leader George Lincoln Rockwell said,'You know that we call you ‘niggers.’ But wouldn’t you rather be confronted by honest white men who tell you to your face what the others all say behind your back?'

I agree with Mr. Rockwell. Please do tell me exactly how you feel. I don’t want you to hide it. I’d rather have a knife through the chest I can see coming than a knife in the back that I can’t. It appears to me that blacks prefer whites to hide their racism. I personally prefer my racist blunt and upfront. I like honesty. </blockquote>

There's a passage in the Bible regarding being either hot or cold, as the lukewarm, God will spit out. There are shades of this sentiment echoed as Shakur addresses grievances with Hillary Clinton, "a known racist. But because she hides it well by appearing to appeal to black concerns, by 'putting hot sauce in her bag,' they hold no qualms. Even though she blatantly called them 'super-predators' and her husband enabled mass incarceration.

Of course, the negroes who love to appeal to their white democrat masters, deem this not 'pro-black.' They want acceptance from 'whitey.' I’m disgusted by this."

Shakur relates how he was asked what figureheads like Marcus Garvey or Malcolm X would think of his actions. The irony here being self-evident at this point, as they did much the same. Garvey, Shakur notes, found "the movement" crowded out by, "'mere opportunists who were living off their so-called leadership while the poor people were groping in the dark. I traveled through thirty-eight States and everywhere found the same condition.'

I can definitely relate to Garvey here. I too see the landscape filled with race pimps and hustlers."

Jim Goad is a man who has been called everything from a Nazi to a rape apologist. I call him a genuinely entertaining, informative and funny fellow myself. He seems to get as much of a kick out of <a href="http://takimag.com/article/the_happy_hoteps_jim_goad/print#ixzz5Mh7HEMWS">the "Happy Hoteps"</a> as I do. Goad, the author of The Redneck Manifesto and The New Church Ladies (a comparison of SJW "shut-it-down" culture to that of censorious fundamentalist Christians in the 80's and 90's)seems to "get" Hotep even if a lot of black folk don't necessarily follow along yet:

<blockquote>Watching the YouTube channels of primary propagandists Hotep Jesus and Uncle Hotep, I didn’t detect one droplet of hatred for white people. In fact, I couldn’t detect even the mildest Hate Vibe at all. That’s because when it comes to “hate,” I’ve discovered over the years a fundamental principle that works with almost mathematical efficiency—those who lob it as an accusation tend to be far more hateful than any of the accused haters. These Hotep brothers don’t bother themselves with infantile, hyper-emotional concepts such as “hate” and “racism.”

Not only did I find myself nodding along in rabid agreement with everything I’ve heard these two “woke” black dudes say, these are the most likeable colored fellas I’ve seen in a coon’s age. Listening to them speak, it struck me how much more profoundly happy and how much funnier they are than all the brooding, angry, Black Lives Matter assholes and Ta-Nahesi Coates sourpusses.

It’s amazing how much more likeable black people are when you remove the leftism. Same goes for the whites. Same goes for anyone. Leftism can take anyone and make them unlikeable.</blockquote>

Jesus Hotep, who Goad describes as looking like "the bastard son of Bob Marley and Jimmy Durante" made a splash on Red Ice TV talking about ethno-nationalism, racial relations between minorities and other topics while pointing out that both could just as easily "poke fun at the left together."

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Poking fun (and just fun in general) seems to play an important role in the Hotep "victor" mentality. It is Jesus Hotep who went viral playing the Robin Hood role in a video where, after "the Starbucks incident" he asks the lady behind the counter for his free cup of coffee as reparations since, of course, the company and presumably the barista are racist. Of course, she obliges and the grinning Hotep palms off the beverage to a young black boy near the counter.

<img src="https://media.8ch.net/file_store/2c0636ea06848a3f410bc89b1b707a94d4f16eae20b9a04e95f03bc58ad76f6c.png" style="max-height:640px;max-width:480px;">

Hoteps have created friction not only in the black community but in the larger left-wing ecology. They are perceived as ignoring the issues of women, LGBTQ, illegals and a whole host of other "protected castes." As such, they are obviously the target of such article headlines that (no seriously, they exist) proclaim that straight, cis-gendered, black men are "the white men of black people."

Yes, that was Fonzi and he seems to have made it just over the shark. Aren't you impressed with peak modernity? Hoteps are an affront to intersectionality, feminism and many of the foundational planks of left-leaning ideologues and demagogues. Remember though, Hotep is for "race first, not race only" and their primary aim beyond improving things for their own people and preserving their own culture is to be "good for all humanity."

I hate to resort to a Jordan Peterson-ism, but shouldn't we all clean up our own messy rooms first before we go out saving the world at large in the first place? (Implied "bucko.")

In another YouTube video, Uncle Hotep tries to clear up the air on exactly what Hotep is. Once again, I mean. If you haven't noticed, people are often more likely to see what they expect to see or want to see than what's really there. This can be especially so depending on the angle, the lighting and what buzzwords are floating in the vicinity. In the video, Uncle Hotep is duded up in a red MAGA hat. Yes, there's an air of showmanship and performance about donning such a controversial article of clothing.

<iframe width="711" height="400" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/9rFXyFYhzok" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

(Holy hell, did I just have to honestly and unironically write that last sentence? Yes, yes I did because minorities and gays have been beaten bloody by straights and whites for <i>daring</i> such an impudent and "uppity" act as appearing in public with a Make America Great Again ball cap. Not like he was rocking gang colors and flashing signs, then again that would be much more easily forgiven.)

It's more than just flair or clickbait though, I believe. A part of me earnestly feels that it's in part due to the semiotic desire (perhaps even need) to counter-signal against the dominant paradigm they're attempting to subvert. Holy cow, it's this inverted praxis? Have we tilted the Situationists perspective on the Spectacle? Is DeBord spinning in his grave yet?

Remember, that Hotep is, in part a counter-reaction. Ah yes, you can call them reactionaries if you need to put them in a pigeonhole. They do have some dreadfully "traditionalist" trappings. But they didn't spring from a vacuum. BLM is an older movement than Hotep. BLM's existence and purred on a sense of urgency, a need for Hotep to come into being.

Back to semiotics against, it's the counter-signal to the signal aiming to subvert the dominant paradigm as self-same "leftist" types or me as a teenager, used to say all the time. BLM was developed to be a monolithic block appealing to all black people with any "social conscience" and any white people who weren't knuckle-dragging, racist oppressor types.

Hotep did their part to explode that framework a little bit calling for, among other things self-accountability. Self-accountability is one of the primary qualities of the Hotep mindset. By pointing out that BLM ignores the fact that a far greater amount of deaths in the black community are caused by black on black violence, they alienate themselves from any but "those horrible racists" on the right.

Uncle Hotep, in his video, explains: "If there's a black group that's oppressed in America it's a Hotep." Now, don't get Uncle Hotep screwed up here though. He's not bragging. Oppression Olympics isn't a game that Hoteps want to play. Focusing on improving yourself and your state in life is a goal and they don't think that wallowing in self-pity about how "somebody else" is holding you back is a healthy, beneficial or effective short or long-term strategy for achieving any sort of success or self-actualization. Honestly, I'm pretty sure many shrinks might agree but you'd have to word it correctly and leave the BLM mess out of it. Shrinks gotta eat too, and the social sciences are fairly rife with the strictures of political correctness.

An example of the Hotep philosophy is shown in the comments section of this video, one viewer points out: "We had a black Wall Street, the whites bombed it. They have never stopped being terrorists." This is that attitude that Kanye, after being schooled by "Redpilled Black," Candace Owens refers to as the "choice" of a "victimhood state of mind." Now as to whether Kanye was right about centuries of slavery being "a choice," eh… he's Kanye, you know, what did you expect?

Handy Mayhem's reply: "its 2017…time to rebuild or put it to bed."

To be fair, I've lurked many an ethno-nationalist forum for many years. There's a sort of unironic hypocrisy at play when some white nationalists decry blacks "blaming white oppression and institutional racism for everything" in one breath while putting all their failures on "tha joos!" It starts within, you want to make a difference in the world? Make yourself a better person and do good things for those in whatever in-group you're in. Setting a positive example, busting up negative attitudes and demolishing paradigms that hold us back rather than convincing ourselves we've lost and should give in and wait for a hero, or organization or government to come save us.

There is only one race in this world and that is the human race. Having said that there are only two kinds in that group. Male and female which is defined by what your body produces……eggs or sperm. Not what you think it is at the moment or what you imagine it should be. Clinically you have mental issues beyond those borders.

@ Jeff Allen: BULL$HIT! whites had jet airplanes and Africans had not yet invented THE WHEEL. Blacks are clearly a human sub-species. how is it that blacks can tout their superior athletic abilities but whites can't admit that they are smarter without being branded "racist"?

—I personally prefer my racist blunt and upfront. I like honesty.— .

there is nothing wrong with being racist. racism is NORMAL HUMAN BEHAVIOR that has been vilified by leftist scum.

Hitler was a good and great man who was vilified by the commie lunatic Stalin and his lying jews with their "holocaust" BULLSHIT.

No such thing as race… ummm then how do you explain genetic diseases such as phenylketonuria or sickle cell disease.

Why do Asians lack an enzyme that metabolizes alcohol making them more susceptible to intoxication.

Is it a "cultural" thing? If I listen to enough koto music will my liver stop making those enzymes?

Here's one… if race doesn't exist except as a cultural construct, then what do those genetic tests that can approximate the last 300 or so years of your ethnic ancestry measure?

Genes exist, genius.
