Being niggerized is not something that just happens overnight. It takes years of deprogramming, programming and reprogramming to successfully niggerize a people. To be beat down to the point where you just willingly accept whatever you’re given is to be niggerized. To not speak out for fear of being attacked and/or vilified is to be niggerized. To humorize one’s own denigration because the pangs of reality are too much to bear is to be niggerized. To be awarded for perpetuating the self-hatred — the hallmark of niggardry — is to be niggerized. To be afraid to stand for what’s right and speak the truth is to be niggerized.
Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together. -Vincent van Gogh
Babel On In Babylon
To be niggerized is to concede to defeat. The niggerized mind denies or doesn’t realize that it’s oppressed at all. There’s a language and a thought process that goes along with being niggerized. “Well, if it was good enough for so-and-so, it’s good enough for me.” “Why fight when ain’t nothing gon’ ever change. Just shut up and do your job. Play the game and get that money.” “I’ll speak out when the time is right.”
To be niggerized is to not be in control of your thoughts. You are trained how to think, or better still, taught not to think at all.
“I call it the niggerization of a people, not just black people, because America been niggerized since 9/11. When you’re niggerized, you’re unsafe, unprotected, subject to random violence, hated for who you are. You become so scared that you defer to the powers that be, and you’re willing to consent to your own domination. And that’s the history of black people in America. That’s the history of black people in America.”
-Dr. Cornell West
Niggerization is not something that happens only to people of color. There are plenty white folks who have been niggerized. The white niggerized mind lives in fear of the Black crackwhore or the Black gangsta. They are hardworking, privileged white people who are as much victims of White, capitalist plutocracy as poor, disenfranchised Blacks. Oppression isn’t just black and white. It exists on a gradient scale from the top down. Only an elite few sit at the top unscathed by the assault of niggardry that plagues the rest of us.
The niggerized mind is taught to protect its master’s ideals, even at his or her own detriment. Truth is the only cure for injustice. To be honest is to be brave enough to take a stand for who you really are– no matter what color. The fact is the elite depends on oppressive silence to survive. Elite does not only mean the White race or the wealthy of America. The Elite are those who wish to control and manipulate others through means of deception. So the question is: How do we become niggerized?
The Niggerization of Propecia
Greed is the seed of Niggerization: the covetous desire to have something you don’t need, but been conditioned to feel you do. A healthy life with resources to provide for oneself and for those we care for should not be a privilege. It should be the right of every human being on this planet.
“If you define ‘nigger’ as someone whose lifestyle is defined by others, whose opportunities are defined by others, whose role in society is defined by others, the good news is that you don’t have to be black to be a nigger in this society. Most of the people in America are niggers.”
We become niggerized because The Elite preys on the insecurity that somehow we don’t feel complete. We become niggerized because we accept the illusion we’ve been sold. Eve was niggerized by Lucifer. Malcolm X was niggerized by Elijah Muhammad. The opposite of the truth is not a lie. A lie is not the absence of truth, it is the distortion of truth. A lie uses the truth to pull you in. The truth part resonates with you and makes the lie more palatable and believable. Belief is always questionable; knowledge is not.
-Zora Neale Hurston (from Their Eyes Were Watching God– 1937)
Niggardry does have one advantage though. The best way to find out who we are is to become who we’re not. We create the illusion so we can dismantle it. We build a glass house around us so at some point we can destroy it.

How To Break The Cycle
“Mr. President, take your campaign, the division, and anger and hate back to Chicago…” -Mitt Romney
This is nothing but racial coding for, “Nigger, carry your Black ass to the field and pick me some cotton.” “Boy, shut up and shine my shoes” “Negro, take your anger and go back to Africa.” “Nigga, instead of sitting here stunnin’, flossin’, and ballin’, go home and feed your family.”
God Is A Dirty Word
Atheism, like Christianity, is a belief. It is a belief and beliefs BeLie the truth. A belief is only a mirror of reality. Belief requires thought, and once thought is in the picture, there is already something in the way. The sole purpose of the existence of belief is to be questioned. The only way to truth is to break through the wall of belief.
God is such a loaded term. The moment you say “God,” people feel self-righteous, defensive, angry, resentful, entitled, guilty, manipulated, empowered, love, compassion, redemption– just about the gamut of every emotion there is to be had. Why? Why does God evoke such adoration and angst all at the same time?
Because so many atrocities of this world have been done “In the name of God…” by humans, it’s highly unlikely we will ever all agree on whether God or the idea of God is intrinsically good or bad. And no matter how many good deeds done “In His (Her) name…” nothing will change this.

Go To The Ant
“I study ants and that’s because I like to think about how organizations work. And in particular, how the simple parts of organizations interact to create the behavior of the whole organization. They all live in colonies consisting of one or a few queens and then all the ants you see walking around are sterile, female workers. And all ant colonies have in common that there’s no central control. Nobody tells anybody what to do. The queen just lays the eggs. There’s no management. No ant directs the behavior of any other ant and I try to figure out how that works.”
“So, ants never make more ants; colonies make more colonies.” She goes on to say, “And curiously and interesting it looks as though at any time about half the ants in the colony are just doing nothing. So despite what it says in the bible about look to the ant thou sluggard…” -Deborah Gordon
But are those ants doing nothing or is it that it just looks as though they’re doing nothing? She also says that those ants serve as a buffer in the middle between the younger worker ants at the bottom of the colony and the older worker ones at the top, and eventually get recruited by the worker ants. Sounds to me as though there seems to be balance between rest and work that is contingent on the middle for survival– there’s a brief lesson on economics! Ha.
. . . to quote the full scripture . . . Proverbs 6:6-8
6 “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: 7 Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, 8 Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.”
In other words, ants have not been niggerized. They all see the benefit of serving the colony over their individual needs. No ant feels a need to have dominion over the others. With no ruler, they carry out their tasks perfectly fine, and are known to adapt to the task at hand– even if it doesn’t fit their “job description.” They are somehow social without being socialized. #BAM!
Walls of Superstition
“When you believe in things you don’t understand, then you suffer…” -Stevie Wonder
Matthew 5:43-48 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
The idea of “haters” is something that has become commonplace amongst the youth of today almost to the point of being cliché, particularly in social media. I have even coined my own Twitter meme in honor of it- #mfcomn. It’s a hashtag for: Mothafuckas Chillin’ On My Nutz
I’ve honestly done some of my best work fueled by the venom of my haters. It inspires me and I’m really thankful for the naysayers. It is because of the backdrop of darkness we are able to experience the sun in all its glory.
An Atheistic Love
“It is not possible to be an atheist and love music. It is not possible to be an atheist and love anything. God is love.”
In some ways, a disbelief in God is more faith in God than belief. Belief is the domain of the discursive intellect. People believed that the world was flat until they actually traveled all the way around to find that it wasn’t. We now have proof the earth is round and no longer have to believe in it. Belief is always subject to change. Knowledge is unflappable as it’s founded on experiential evidence we know to be true.
The Niggerization of Love
When you niggerize something, you create an image of something that’s vile, to be feared, you objectify it, you brand it, you sell it, you smear its name.
That’s what it is to be a nigger and we’ve made a nigger out of God.
The story of Jesus Christ is one of the greatest examples of niggerization that’s ever been told. He was vilified, crucified, and hung from a tree– just like a nigger!
Here Comes The Son
Man made God in his own image. God didn’t create this “vengeful, terrible” image of itself, man did. God is the most powerful force in the universe. There is no sickness that God can’t cure. Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. Jesus raised the dead and cured the sick. Jesus fed the multitudes. Whoever believes in Him shall not die, but have everlasting life
God is love and love is God. 1 John 4:8 says– “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” If God is love, this scripture is basically saying: if you don’t love, you don’t know love. Therefore it is not possible to love and not know love. You don’t have to believe in God to love, but you have to believe in love to love. So, by the definition of Atheism, God is an atheist. Love does not “believe” in love. Love is love.
You don’t have to believe in yourself when you know yourself.
Love is the most powerful force in the universe. There is no sickness that love can’t cure. Love raises the dead and cures the sick. Love feeds the multitudes. Whoever believes in love shall not die, but shall live forever. A life without love is no life at all.
Love is within us all.
