Reading today an article about current Massachusetts Governor Deval
Patrick, we had to laugh, realizing he was describing in succinct detail
what we call Black-Run America (BRA). He called America a “civil rights nation”: So what does Deval Patrick’s memoir tell us about how black elites think? In my opinion, it is their conception of the United States as a “civil rights nation,” as Gov. Patrick articulates it in his memoir:
Ours may be the only nation in human history not
organized around a common language or religion or culture so much as a
common set of civil ideals. And we have defined those ideals over time
and through struggle as equality, opportunity, and fair play.The
highest pursuit in American life (whether it be civic, public, private,
entertainment, etc.) is the continued desire to purge the nation of
Black inequality (i.e. Black failure). That
Black inequality is the fault solely of some vague concept called
"white privilege" is the only accepted reasoning in the eyes of BRA,
and the history of the nation can be distilled as one of Black people
overcoming the enormous impediments of white supremacy.
Prominent movies have been made that canonized Black troops in the Civil War (Glory). A movie was made that hyped the contributions of Black pilots in World War 2 (The Tuskegee Airman)
to such a degree that watching the movie would lead the viewer to
believe these men were responsible for the downfall of the Third Reich.
Still another movie, a semi-true tale, was Men of Honor, which told the story of Carl Brashear, who overcame bigotry and Black fear of water to become the first Black Navy diver.
And let's not forget Cuba Gooding Jr.'s famous characterization of Dorie Miller in 2001’s Pearl Harbor, the Black cook who returned fire like every other American serviceman did during the Japanese attack but, because he was Black, became a national hero while valiantly overcoming the bigotry and racism from a character – played by Robert De Niro – who never even actually existed!
The Hollywood scriptwriters created a white bigot character for De Niro to play solely to the necessary racial provocations to make the story BRA approved.
that brings us to the story of the team of Navy SEALs killing the evil
terrorist Osama Bin Laden. If a more gripping, emotional, perfectly
scripted story can be fast-tracked for a summer 2012 release exists, we
dare you to show us.
However, a problem remains. The view of a multicultural Special Forces unit is a concept alien to the US Military, where Real American Heroes have the unpleasant tendency to be overwhelmingly white:It' s a situation that hasn' t been lost on minority members of special-operations forces.
"Those that are perceived as the most elite will have the smallest
minority representation," said Capt. Everett Greene, who recently
retired as the top-ranking black officer in the Navy SEALs.
Why does it matter if a small segment of the otherwise racially diverse military has so few minority members?
It' s the special-operations forces' missions -- all overseas, often
working with foreign governments and often in secret -- that make ethnic
diversity a significant issue with the brass.
Top generals and admirals argue that having more minority troops
would help bridge language and cultural differences that
special-operations forces often encounter in foreign countries.
The dearth of minorities in the elite forces is a sign of a much
larger and more serious problem facing America and its armed forces, say
sociologists who specialize in the military.
In a democracy, the sociologists argue, the military should reflect
of the civilian society -- in economic, cultural and racial diversity.
Today the military, particularly the Army, remains one of the few settings in which blacks routinely boss whites.
Blacks, Latinos, Asians, American Indians and other minorities now
make up 34 percent of the military, greater than the 28.5 percent
minority representation within the general U.S. population.
But the picture is very different in elite units.
The Army Special Forces, known by distinctive green berets, has 234
African-American officers and soldiers in a force of 5,200 men. Blacks make up 4.5 percent of the Green Berets, compared with nearly 24 percent of the male soldiers in the Army. The Navy has only 31 blacks among its 2,299 Sea-Air-Land, or SEAL, commandos, less than 2 percent of the force. African-Americans constitute nearly 17 percent of the male personnel within the Navy. And, the Air Force' s special-tactics groups have only eight blacks in a force of 472 men, less than 2 percent. Servicewide, about 14 percent of the Air Force' s male personnel are African-American.
The statistics have not improved significantly in recent years, despite heightened recruiting efforts. Thankfully tax dollars are being spent to try and find Black candidates for the Navy SEALs who aren’t afraid of water:
The Naval Special Warfare Center is embarking on new
marketing and awareness campaigns to reach more minority candidates who
have the best odds of becoming Navy SEALs in the hope that those efforts
will diversity the commando force.
The campaign is the latest move by Naval Special Warfare Command to
boost its recruitment of minorities, particularly African-Americans, to
attend the Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL course and follow-on SEAL
Qualification Training and join the all-male community of special
operators — one that historically has been largely white.
The campaign started Oct. 1, but much of the work is just beginning,
said Rosemary Heiss, an NSW Recruiting Directorate spokeswoman in
Naval Special Warfare Command hired three contractors for the
diversity initiative, which will renew naval special warfare’s outreach
to historically black colleges and universities; develop new marketing
strategies that focus awareness, screening and recruiting efforts on
minority communities; and develop research that identifies the traits of
successful BUD/S candidates to hone recruiting.
“Each initiative has a different approach to get a candidate that we
want. When you have a multifaceted approach, you start to mesh the
different initiatives together to get more successful candidates,” Cmdr.
Brodes Hartley, naval special warfare’s force diversity officer, said
in a Navy Compass article.
Navy SEAL training is considered among the toughest in the military,
with attrition rates from BUD/S average roughly 75 percent. But efforts
in recent years, including an expanded recruitment effort and retooled
preparatory course at the Naval Training Center in Great Lakes, Ill.,
are showing signs of easing attrition of potential SEAL and special
warfare combatant-craft crewman candidates.
However, overall minority numbers still remain short of existing
goals, and minority representation within NSW’s officer and enlisted
communities remains much lower than what is reflected in the U.S.
Roughly 12.5 percent of the U.S. population is black, a number
expected to rise to 13 percent by 2040, according to U.S. Census
predictions. But only 10 percent of SEAL officers are minorities — with
blacks representing 2 percent of officers — and minorities make up less
than 20 percent of enlisted special warfare operators, according to a
May contract solicitation for the pilot marketing and outreach program.Look, just do what the Naval Academy and U.S. Coast Guard Academy did and lower standards already!
The lamentable fact that the Special Forces are nearly all-white (as are the pilots in the Air Force and the majority of our best Officers in each branch)
is a factoid that won’t dissuade Hollywood casting agents from calling
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson (who will inevitably be
cast as the commanding officer of the SEAL team), Terry Crews, and that weird Black dude from the Old Spice commercials as potential actors in the inevitable SEAL TEAM 6 film that glorifies the men who took down Osama.
Hounsou can be the African immigrant and moral compass of the SEALs
team. Ice Cube would be perfect for the part of the inner-city brother
who really hates to swim but joined the Navy because his dad was a
janitor in the World Trade Center… “Iss all 'bout the revenge, brah;
Don Cheadle can be cast as President Mein Obama with Halle Berry the perfect Michelle Obama.
Well, all right. That might be going a little far. Just recast Vin Diesel (who played a SEAL in The Pacifer)
as the Token Black guy and then five white dudes and you’ve got a film.
The fact that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tweeted about getting a role in
the inevitable film is what got us thinking about the SEAL TEAM 6 film. You
just know the inevitable photo of the team that took out Osama isn’t
going to be a picture that Deval Patrick would approve of as a
BRA-approved, civil rights-type shot.
If it included Special Warfare Operator 1st Class David Goggins, we’d be fine with that:One
of the Navy's elite warriors demonstrated his commitment to giving back
to the local community when he paid a weeklong motivational visit to
African American students at a local high school and college in Atlanta
from Nov. 30 to Dec. 7.
Special Warfare Operator 1st Class David Goggins, a role model for
African American youth, addressed Morehouse College's faculty and
student body offering leadership strategies and tips on pushing past
mental and physical limits. He also visited South West DeKalb County
High School and Peachtree Ridge High School where he instructed students
currently on the wrestling, swimming, and track and field teams on
The students seemed to immediately connect with Goggins' honest and
humble approach when he shared some of his experiences while serving as a
"I'm just human, and I've had to learn my lessons just like everyone else," Goggins said.
He shared that he had to overcome the adversity of losing his father to murder.
"Sometimes I would hear people say 'Man, Goggins looks solid.', but they
didn't know that I was really broken down inside," Goggins said. "I was
able to push through that because I made a decision to push through --
for myself, my family and those fallen heroes. It's amazing how if you
tell yourself you've made a decision to finish something, your body can
reset itself -- the pain starts to go away."
Among Goggins' many physical feats is his ability to run 203 miles in 48
hours. Goggins is also no stranger to competing in "extreme" events
like the Badwater 135-miler, a run routed through Death Valley. He has
also competed in the Furnace Creek 508, which is a 508-mile bike race he
completed in 41 hours. A testament to his endurance, Goggins said he
often completed physical feats while battling injuries including broken
feet, torn muscles and kidney failure.
He's training now for the Race Across America, which will take him 3,000
miles from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md., in less than nine
days. He trains for more eight hours a day -– with three broken ribs.The SEALs team that took out Osama didn’t look anything like the America valued by Disingenuous White Liberals and BRA bureaucrats fighting for a civil rights nation.Like most of the people who sign on who to defend America, they were all white.
movie won’t cast them as such, and you can bet Samuel L. Jackson will
have a part in the film. (And when asked his thoughts on the terrorists
and collateral damage, his character will be scripted to say, “Yes, they deserved to die. And I hope they burn in Hell!”).
Recall the furor over Black Hawk Down,
where one Token Black was cast among a sea of bad-ass white dudes
amidst an endless assault of Black people in Somali (think the scene
where aliens keep assaulting the marines in Aliens). When you think about it, Black Hawk Down could have been made about Hurricane Katrina or the LA riots of 1992.
Despite all the nonsense of America being a “civil rights nation” and the terrifying power of Black-Run America, white people still love this country and fight for it.
Despite all the nonsense of America being a “civil rights nation” and the terrifying power of Black-Run America, white people still love this country and fight for it. Superman might turn their back on this nation, but is that necessarily a bad thing?
Remember, Hollywood is putting out a Captain America in July where a reluctant Steve Rogers becomes the super-soldier (is he a secret member of the American First Committee?): Read it and weep you suckers who thought Hollywood might give us this one. But at the same time, don’t forget to thank Johnston for disappointing us before we spent the ten bucks:
“We’re sort of putting a slightly different spin on Steve Rogers,”
said Joe Johnston, whose past directing credits include “Jurassic Park
III” and “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. “He’s a guy that wants to serve his
country but he’s not a flag-waver. We’re reinterpretating sort of what
the comic book version of Steve Rogers was.” …
“He wants to serve his country, but he’s not this sort of
jingoistic American flag-waver,” Johnston said. “He’s just a good
person. We make a point of that in the script: Don’t change who you are
once you go from Steve Rogers to this super-soldier, you have to stay
who you are inside, that’s really what’s important more than your
strength and everything. It’ll be interesting and fun to put a different
spin on the character and one that the fans are really going to
Much, much more predictable heartbreak below the fold:
For Johnston, the imperative is artistic one, not a commercial one.
He wants a character that’s more complicated than a flag and a movie
that entertains without borders.
“Yeah and it’s also the idea that this is not about America so much
as it is about the spirit of doing the right thing,” the director said.
“It’s an international cast and an international story. It’s about what
makes America great and what make the rest of the world great too.”
An unenthusiastic Captain America, averse to fighting for the Red, White and Blue?
What? Was he mad that the military was segregated during World War II?
Don’t worry, his special forces unit has a Black guy to ensure that the
“civil rights” mission of American history in cinema remains in place:When it was recently announced that Derek Luke had a role in the upcoming Marvel film, 'Captain America: First Avenger,'
many fans and websites were curious as to which character the 36
year-old New Jersey native would play since the studio hadn't mentioned
it in numerous press releases on the film.
Luke will be playing one of Nick Fury's Howling Commando's, Gabe Jones, stated BlackFilm.com. Jones is remembered in the Marvel universe as a fierce fighter who always carried his trumpet into battle.
Other roles Luke was speculated for were a young Nick Fury, Fury's father Jack or Captain America's Avengers' partner Falcon.
As the first African-American to serve in an integrated unit, Jones
is one of the close confidantes to Sergeant Nick Fury, who would later
become the head of the organization S.H.I.E.L.D. Jones would later join
him as an agent. Let’s get real
for a second. Those members of SEALs Team 6 represent real-life Captain
America’s, as do all members of the United States Special Forces Units.
They aren’t joining the military just for a job (think Alvin Greene),
but they join because they love this country, have a desire to push
themselves to the edge of physicality and go back for more and probably
just want to kill some evil sons-of-a-bitches.
We at SBPDL support the United States
military and ask any member of the armed forces reading this site to
remember that America is much more than some “civil rights” concept. We
already know “diversity” is all that the military brass who bow before
BRA value, but the men who do the actual fighting aren’t in it for the
betterment of “civil rights” or BRA.
They still believe this country stands for something, and the majority of people who proudly wave the flag do as well. It ain’t “civil rights”…
So who do you think should be cast in the inevitable SEALs Team 6 film? Trust us: Three or four minority actors will get parts in it, when the SEALs unit probably looked something like this. Wait, they already made a movie about Navy SEALs with a token Black guy?
