One of the reasons racism, Jim Crow, sexism, homophobia, and all the other isms remain with us is the complicity a few black people, POCs, and members of the aggrieved.
So, I am cutting up some videos believing I would have a nice quiet time to work on some videos, and then start working on trying to make my new book into an audio-book. Then I get a Facebook message from a very good friend and supporter of mine. She probably knew it would ring my bell and generate a strong response.
Egberto, please give me words to respond to this shit.
So, I go read the post from a "Patrick D. Hampton" that I swear could be out of the slavery days. Here is his post. I am copying it below just in case he changes it out of embarrassment.
Dear LeBron James,
You don’t speak for me and my boys.
I’m a father of four brown boys. It is my responsibility as a father to protect and serve them. There is no need for police in my home because as the father, I’m the authority in my home.
Police are needed where fathers and law and order are absent. When there is no father to protect and serve children, police have to move into that community to protect and serve.
Where there is no father or authority in the home or neighborhood, young men rebel. This is why police are having a hard time gaining compliance with fatherless boys on the side of the road. They refuse to sit down, be quiet, and comply. Why? Because the police are the first men to tell them NO and assert their authority. These boys have spent years under no ones authority. This is the main problem.
So please don’t speak for me and my boys. Me and my boys are not terrified of the police because we respect the police and accept their authority. That’s because they first had to respect me as their father and accept my authority. Actually one of them wants to be a police officer. You Lebron are trying to destroy that dream by painting police officers in a negative light when most a good guys.
We are terrified of the black men that kill each other in their black neighborhoods everyday. We are afraid of the black men that threaten us and call us cūns and uncle toms for desiring to live a peacefull and successful life. We are aware of the fact that 93% of all black homicides are by black men. (Bureau of Justice Statistics)
If you really want to help fatherless boys like yourself, stop using fear tactics and guilt trips. Help promote legislation like “EQUAL SHARED PARENTING” that helps divorced dads and single dads have more time with their children without paying more child support.
Help get legislation passed to make child support more fair and equal. Fund programs like my former #GoodGuys #GoodGirls Program (killed by ObamaCare) that helped young black youth save sex until marriage, learn their history, learn to respect police, develop work ethic and accomplish their goals.( https://youtu.be/1ZxCe3JXp3M ).
Stop blaming the police and help build better fathers. Stop saying police need more training and train more dads and young black boys on the the rule of law and police protocols.
Remember, there are millions of black and brown boys out here that are not being killed by police. They are alive and doing quite well. How? We obey the law. Comply with police and if the police does something wrong or unethical, they live to fight in court and not the side of the road.

As I have said many times, I usually do not respond to posts like these when I get angry because measured responses are generally better absorbed. The actions of the mentally enslaved like Mr. Hampton is responsible for the deaths, incarceration, and the destruction of families of thousands as he is complicit in the degradation of many sects in our society. I was angry, but I made sure to be composed. This is the comment I left.
The teachings of the master are working well in Mr. Patrick D. Hampton, a man who fails to understand the difference between respecting authority and subservience. It is said that once the mind is enslaved, the chains are no longer necessary.
Hampton is the perfect example. I repeat ad nauseam, crime among those who live together is about the same. So, one would find that white on white murder is similar to black on black. But that is not even the point since “criminality” has a socio-economic component that the selfish seldom see, “I’ve got mine.”
Mr. Hampton was likely stopped by the cops. He likely thought his treatment was always fine even though if he were white, he would not have been stopped in the first place, and if stopped treated with respect orders of magnitude greater. But to Mr. Hampton, that would not matter. After all, he had authority in his home, in his little fiefdom.
Mr. Hampton is a perfect example of why slavery, Jim Crow, and all these other evils have lasted so long. He is the necessary tool like the house slave and the slave who whipped the field slave on behalf of the master. Believe it or not, that is our socio-economic system even beyond race, Mr. Hampton is not only happy to play his role but happy to perpetuate it.
It is a human flaw too common in many of us. In Mr. Hampton’s case, it is racial. But for the survival of our corrupt economic system, racial is just one component. For it is clear now that America is an antiseptic slave state where the gradation of power and worth maintains a pecking order that allows a few to profit off of the labor of others.
What Mr. Hampton fails to realize is the police is the component to keep the most aggrieved caste under control. For the most aggrieved to stay in its state without revolt requires maximum physical control.
Many of our white brothers and sisters are starting to understand that racism is a tool of the economic system. Even if not in words and thought they get it with implicit observations. They have become more than allies. They are now complicit with us for change. As those numbers increase, our enslaved black and white brothers and sisters naturally react as they feel the comfort of their steady ground in their “state of being” shifting.
We should not simply pity the mentally enslaved like Mr. Hampton. We must continue to engage him publicly. He may be too wedded economically to his deceit. But others watching the conversation who have not publicly exposed their enslavement may be willing to go through the machinations to free themselves by actively joining the movement.
I just wrote a book recently that include some of Mr. Hampton’s delusions. The book is titled “It's Worth It: How to Talk To Your Right-Wing Relatives, Friends, and Neighbors” and you can find it on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/3iPVlxF
The Right-Wing is populating the internet with thousands of messages like this as a form of mind control. They want to create false narratives and it is clear that it is working on some. We must not only present a counter-narrative from a defensive posture. We must actively show how not only that these are tools of the system but it hurts even those who are subject to by into the patently false narrative.
Please share this widely. These folks have thousands of paid agents to create a narrative that corrupts the votes of many. Let's do our part to counter and to promote truth.
