This is an open letter to the black intelligentsia—the professors, doctors, politicians and opinion leaders mostly on the left but many on the right as well—who profit handsomely from the very system you pretend to be against. Malcolm X had you marked a long time ago; you are the heirs of house negros and studied coons who pray at the altars of “white” supremacy as you froth at the mouth acting like you are on one us. Take this letter for what it is, a thorough repudiation of every single one of your lot who are no better than the Africans who sold their own into slavery for the sake of a few dollars.
I always make it a point to use quote marks around the libel “black” for I know the pernicious nature of these brands, a designation given to us by slave traders in order to dehumanize us and impugn our characters. Today I shall dispense with the quote marks because the tag black applies to these treacherous serpents who profit in our names as they lick the boots of their masters. Instead of courageously leading their people out of the wilderness, these Moses and Tubmans in reverse march us back into bondage using the pains of the marginalized as their personal ATM machines.
~40% of rioters were biz owners or white collar, which “fits with research suggesting that the rise of right-wing extremist groups in the 1950s was fueled by people in the middle of society who felt they were losing status and power.”

I am talking to you Professor IBram X. Kendi, who wrote a book titled “How to Be an Antiracist” yet cozies up to the same racists who implement heinous policies that keep tens of millions of “black” folks mired in poverty. I am talking to you Ta-Nehisi Coates who made fortunes by turning grievance into a platinum coated panhandle. I am talking about Don Lemon who has perfected the art of shucking and jiving in ways that makes minstrel shows look like the second coming of the Haitian Insurrection by comparison. I am talking about Michelle Obama who cashed in on her husband’s hustle and is currently raking in the dough while giving cover to Biden as he goes about destroying whatever is left of the “black” middle-class.
I could go on naming hundreds of names but you get the drift; the supposed “talented tenth” who were supposed to lift the rest out of poverty and hopelessness have been weaponized by the establishment and turned against us. Here is how hoodwink works; black intellectuals are given two choices if they want to succeed: either be a sellout of the right or be a chiseler of the left. Once these ignominious “scholars” make a decision, the path to riches and stardom is paved for them. All they have to do is keep mum about the true sources of injustice and instead bamboozle their unwitting followers into thinking that the “other” side is to blame.
These sambos are so eager to appease their masters that they do a better job of maintaining “white” supremacy than any “white” person could do. They get on either Fox News and OAN on one side or MSNBC and CNN on the other side and tap dance on demand; they whoop and holler like rabid dogs on steroids. It is embarrassing that grown adults are reduced into infants; they bandy about big words to hide their shallow knowledge only to go home and swim in their ill gotten gains. House negros all of them, they live in their expensive chalets utterly disconnected from the plight of the people they supposedly speak for.
Most of the time, they are nowhere to be found until the camera lights are on us, that is when they make a Bee line for the hood as they rush to the nearest place of oppression. They arrive before bodies turn cold, preen for TVs and scream their cadences that they have perfected in their mirrors only to rush out once the hot mics go cold. These people are poison in ways that David Duke could never imagine; they are the second coming of Judas as they lead their people to the cross and crucify a generation of black youth at the cross of capitalism.
It is sad, these black “intellectuals” have enough cache and platforms to really challenge the establishment and in the process offer an alternative that could awaken the masses. Here is what I believe to be true with all my heart, those who have been given the most injustices are the ones who can alter the status quo. When it comes to historical pains, none have experienced more brutality than people who can trace their ancestry to the continent we now call “Africa”. As marginalized as “black” folks are, we still are the ones who shape the culture and move the needle, this is why the gentry invest in black opinion leaders, they are inverting a rebellion into a capitulation.
The biggest enemies of "black" people are black intellectuals. Getting paid by the very system of "white" supremacy they pretend to be fighting while using the pains of the oppressed to climb the social ladder:: #BouletOverseers

These same black grifters are currently being paid handsomely by Biotech corporations, the US government and devils like Bill Gates to convince “‘black” folks to get injected. We know better; we learned a long time ago thanks to the Tuskegee Institute experiments, to trust authority that comes around with needles about as much as we trust the news. Unmoved by our skepticism and motivated by their rank greed, these black shepherds are trying their hardest to lead us to a second holocaust against people who originate from a continent that was once called Ethiopia. To these black academician I only have three words: go to hell. May you burn there with your cash and may you get your comeuppance soon enough. #Note2BlackIntellectuals Click To Tweet
