Anatomy of a House Nigga!

House Nigga, Slave, Sell Out! Negro! Calling a Black person any of these names can get you killed! You don't just throw them out flippantly and not prepare yourself for the potential consequences. On the other hand, if someone refers to you as one of these you might wanna run!


About a decade ago, University of California Regent, Ward Connelley, ushered in Prop 209. This banned affirmative action in admissions considerations to University of California Schools. This happened on then Governor Pete Wilson (R) watch. That, coupled with Prop 187 which banned services to Illegal immigrants made for an interesting year.



When Ward Connelley proposed Prop 209 Black Folks spoke loudly against it! Affirmative Action had only been in effect and enforced since the 1970's. It had a chilling effect on the amount of Black Students admitted to the UC Schools. This year, UCLA for instance had 96 Black Students receive degrees. UCLA has over 10,000 Students! You do the math!



It's funny cause when you heard Ward Connelley speak his point of view doesn't sound sinister. On the surface it sounds as if it's designed to leave the academic merits as the sole basis for entering the University. Fairness, Right? But we all know that admissions aren't decided on merit! The Universities themselves survive and thrive based on Philanthropist's, alumni contributions, federal and state subsidies and monies raised from the sports programs. Bowl games anyone?



You mean to tell me that all those "Special interests" received no favors when a student representing them applied for admission? Come on! You mean to tell me there were so many Black Folks, going to UCLA for example, in the 1990's, that it affected the campus majority racial complexion so much so that when Prop 209 was enforced that 96 Black Folks graduated in 2010?

So, what makes a Black Person who agrees with Connelley a Sell Out for instance? First, the majority of Black Folks were not in agreement with him. Does that make White Folks who don't agree with the majority view of White Folks a sell out Mista Jaycee?

I'll let you answer that. Black People told Ward Connelley this was a bad idea. It was pointed out that enforcement of Affirmative Action had was only about 30 years old, and however, flawed, it may be it still, had yet to counteract the unfair advantage, given to the majority White Populace over their Black Contempories. It was pointed out that schooling up to the college and University levels were still sub-standard in Black and Majority neighborhoods. It was pointed out that there had been no demonstration of wide spread discrimination against White people as a result of Affirmative Action. It was pointed out that the real beneficiaries of Affirmative Action were in fact White Women who while they out number Men are considered a Minority! Go Figure! None of these things, for instance, deterred Ward Connelley. Only a certain segment of powerful White interests backed Connelley. He ignored it! But what makes Connelley a Sell out is this. After you could clearly see the negative effect that passing this law had done you still went and sponsored it in other states. Connelley went so far as to turn a profit of over a Million Dollars in speaking engagements. That's when White Folks got mad! When they found out they Nigger, oops did I say that? I mean, Ward Connelley was making Money off it!

You mean you were selling out your own people's interests just on the goodness of your own heart? Oh, Ward!

Even after he could see the devastation he'd wrought he still carried on! That's my friends is a sell-out! He still preaches the party line! That my friends is a house nigger! Now, don't just read this and move on. Comment! Let's talk!

BE Prayerful! BE Mindful! BE Careful!

Such is life my sister, such is life.
The question remains Should we as blacks be admitted based on merit or based on whether our ancestors were slaves or not??

96 out of about 10,000. That's roughly 1%. Do you have any idea what the percentage was before he got destroyed it?

I think he's worse than a house negro, I see him as a race traitor which is far worse in my view.
