ABCD: Is it productive to call out racists in the workplace?

In my experience? No.

Why?

If you call them out and not everyone in your office (especially people in power) agree with you and have your back (and get rid of the person), you're the one that's going to be ostracized.

You might feel good and that you did the right thing, but unless you have enough currency in your organization and a fail safe exit strategy (and some parents with money), you're screwed.

My philosophy is to take all out guerilla warfare on the person(s) or the entire organization. Don't let folks know what's going on, but have a plan and be ruthless in your execution.

ABCD: How many types of White people are there?

Racists.

"Try to hide it" racists.

"Don't want to believe they are racist" racists.

"Don't even know they are racist" racists (i.e. White folks who work in the diversity and anti racism worlds)

Plantation owner, racists (i.e. Jerry Jones)

Wolf among sheep, racists (i.e. Justin Trudeau)

"I could give two shits" racists (i.e. Trump)

Trying to deconstruct their inherited racism, racists.

Moral of the story:

There is one type of White people.

Racists.

ABCD: What do I do if my White boss calls me a monkey and tells me to dance?

Short and long answer:

Once I figure it out myself (without losing my job or getting black-balled, again), I'll let you know.

ABCD: Why does Colin Kaepernick still not have a job?

People like to say that Kaepernick still doesn't have a job in the NFL cause he's Black and was protesting the National White Supremacist call to arms (ie the US national anthem).

I say you are not incorrect, but the true reason is because he betrayed one key thing:

He was the light skinned House Negro that was accepted in to the homes of White America (which is a historical truth as us dark-skinned Negroes were out far back in the fields) and then spit in the master's food and slept with his wife.

Back in the day that would've gotten him castrated and/or lynched (or both cause White folks were/are real sadists). Now he's just unemployed.

And to tell the truth, to be an unemployed Black man in Amurika in 2017 is almost like getting your balls cut off.

White Supremacists are everywhere

We have all this talk about the 'alt-right' and 'right-wing extremist' in their nazi garb and shaved heads looking like Edward Norton from American History X. But, to tell you the truth, I don't fear those folks, nor do I think those are the people we, as Millennial Militants and People of Colour, should be worried about:

It's all those White supremacists in suits, in boardrooms, in classrooms, in the legislature, flying planes, cutting cheques, in operating rooms, and taking my taxes, that I worry about.

Don't let the rhetoric fool you to who is the real threat.
