Katt Williams on Dave Chappelle: “But Dave Chappelle was decapitated in front of us. And until we deal that. Until we deal with the fact that a devout Muslim was accused of being a crackhead. And until we establish the fact that they said he went to Africa to smoke cocaine when we know they don’t have running water and food over there. When they don’t have paved roads over there. You saying he flew past Chicago and Miami and LA and New York and Detroit, you saying he went past Cleveland and Fort Pierce, Florida, and he went past Okeechobee and Oakland, you saying he went all the way to another country where they not eating? You talking about somebody who has a wife and children, five children, and lives on a farm, he doesn’t live here in Hollywood. You saying you convince people that person was an insane crackhead? And he hasn’t been on movies and TV for eight years is that correct? Ok then don’t tell me about what you wanna tell me, I just watched you decapitate him in front of me… Then when he made 500 million dollars, even though his contract said he was supposed to get half of it, they said he made too much for the contract to be valid, so we’ll offer you 10% of what you made. You mean he made 500 million and they offered him 50? Yes. And he said, “what do you think my fans are gonna say? When they find out you offered me 10% of what I made you.” And they said, “your fans will believe that you’re a crazy crackhead by the time you get home. And my nigga got on a flight in LA and by the time he got to Ohio it was so. And eight years later he hasn’t been in a movie or television and is just now trying to do his real comeback in Radio City Music Hall. It’s bees like that sometimes.”

And I’m a conspiracy theorist, huh?

Apologies if this is a silly question, but why does the US continue to support Israel? What does the US gain from Israel?

redphilistine:

For a number of reasons.

In terms of geopolitics, it is a western-oriented country that’s very friendly to the US and is willing to serve as a bulwark against possible threats from other Middle Eastern countries. Additionally, it has a very well-developed military with a multitude of weapons and a nuclear arsenal. The calculation for America is that it’s better to have Israel on “our” side than for “us” to let it go and fall in line with say Russia or China. 

In terms of domestic politics, there is a powerful lobby in Washington that enforces a consensus on Israel. It’s not that this lobby is invincible, far from it. However, to stand up to it, you need a lot of resources, including money and the ability to take hits and still emerge victorious. Politicians who might want to disagree look at the pros and cons and decide it’s not worth it to disagree. It also helps that zionism has literally acted as a ticket to Washington — e.g. Democrat Senator Dick Durbin who owes his career to zionism.

Moreover, Israel and Islamophobia go hand-in-hand. Especially after 9/11, hatred and bigotry against Muslims and Muslim-coded people has moved more into the mainstream on the right but also on the left. Israel has benefited from this because it is seen as fighting against Muslim extremists, even though that isn’t true. This is why Netanyahu once said that 9/11 was good for Israel

You hear whites talk about “Well, [slavery] was back there. We don’t have anything to do with that anymore.” And it’s an amazing situation because you have to remind them that you are still living off the interest of the wealth that your forefathers earned from slavery. You are still enjoying the accumulated wealth that bean with the enslavement of our people. And if you are going to enjoy the wealth that was generated by evil, then you must take the curse that comes along with it. And therefore, because you have received stolen goods you must pay the price as well; because you fight and struggle to protect those stolen goods, and you defend them, and you organize your society and your relationship to our people to maintain them and to continue to enhance them.
Dr. Amos N. Wilson (via disciplesofmalcolm)
We Palestinians don’t talk about fear, we talk about death. Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us. We have no bomb shelters, we have no sirens, we have nowhere we can take our children and keep them safe. They are scared. We are dying.

This is incredibly relevant.
