Ostrich alert.

Our friend Kamikaze really did not like the bad news that was reported last week about Jackson Public Schools and Jackson State University.  Kaze posted on Facebook:

Lemme tell yall summin...and listen good hear...

I better not see some of yall getting on my timeline with that "We need to let some white folks run _______" bulls**t hear? Whether its Jackson, Jackson State, Bo Jackson, or Action Jackson. I might block ya. And yall know I dont even block folks.

Dont yall fall for that banana in the tailpipe, that propaganda, that narrative... that they are trying to feed you that Black folks cant run anything. And further dont fall for the hype that surrounding bedroom communities run by white leaders are doing any better. Dont you find it interesting that The City, Our HBCU, and our school district are all simultaneously under fire...at the same damn time? Doesnt that puzzle you? Suddenly ALLLLLLL these Black folks are incompetent?..Money's been mismanaged for all this time and just NOW, yall goin public? And right after they tried to takeover the airport.... hmmmmmm. That don't seem strange to you? 
Listen. The incompetence, the mismanagement, the scandals, etc have NOTHING to do with it being Black folks in power. But EVERYTHING to do with what happens when you put the WRONG Black folks in power. Simple as that. When white politicians and officials do wrong I dont see an indictment against ALL white leadership. Do you? Folks on here talking bout "We need a white Mayor". "JSU needs a white president". If you dont get your self loathing, self-depricating arse outta here with that mess!!!!

The Fair commission might be the most corrupt entity in the state. Been running with impunity for decades. Dont see ANY Black folks over there...and ironically NO investigations into it either. Think about it

Kaze, Kaze, Kaze.  I hate to tell you this, but there is no GWC, otherwise known as the Great White Conspiracy.  The Mississippi Department of Education said this summer it was going to release the school ratings in October.  I can see it now, Dr. Carey Wright - who came from Washington DC and whose cronies happen to be black- called up IHL and asked if they had anything bad on JSU and if they did, could they break the bad news at the same time that she released the school ratings.  Um, yeah.

Kaze, if you had bothered to read this website over the last five years, you would see that JJ has been warning about Dr. Gray and the track JPS was on for quite some time.  Don't blame me that I turned out to be right when you should have been listening all along.  When did you say a word about Dr. Gray's performance?  When nearly a third of third graders flunked the reading test last year, did you say anything?  Nearly half of the third graders at one school failed that same test- crickets.  The truth is many Jacksonians such as yourself ignored JPS, did not hold its leaders accountable, and now refuse to admit there is a problem when someone does.

As for JSU, balance sheets are balance sheets.  Dr. Myers either spent the money and took on more debt or she did not do so.  You can shriek all day long that she is a victim of the GWC but balance sheets do not lie.  By the way Kaze, JSU is a public university.  You aren't suggesting it should support segregation, do you?  What would happen if whites enrolled at JSU en masse? Would Kaze be happy with those changes?

One reason Mississippi is dead last in everything is that there is often a refusal to admit there is a problem.  The blinders are even more powerful in Jackson where black community leaders are loath to admit anything is wrong.  If someone points out a problem, the response is to call him a racist, an Uncle Tom, or accuse him of adopting "white supremacist values" (if one is in the Malcolm X Grassroots crowd.).    Mr. Kaze's post is more of the same.

If the leaders are not incompetent can someone explain the change? I have been here since the fifties. It's different now from even 10 - 15 years ago. A lot different from 30 years ago.

Blacks have been taught for a long time that everything wrong in the world is the fault of the white man. To become a leader in the black community all a person has to do is yell racist and blame it all on the white person. It helps to put reverend in front of your name also. With those two things you can become a black leader. Doesn't matter if you and your friends steal every penny the people give or are forced to give.

Children cannot read, it is the white man's fault.

Money missing, it is the white man's fault.

City streets looking like goat trails, it is the white man's fault.

More city water running in the streets than in the faucets in homes, it is the white man's fault.

Law enforcement crooked, it is the white man's fault.

High crime in the inner cities, it is the white man's fault.

High % of black mothers raising their children alone, it is the white man's fault.

Can anyone ever get the courage to stand up and accept fault for anything?

Anonymous said...

It's not anyone's fault....it's everyone's fault.

Math is math.

If the tax base leaves then there is no way to sustain a city.

Blame helps no one but the politicians I suppose.

When the financial manager is appointed we can get down to the business of planning for the future...

Until then....JJ has to sell ads and nothing sells ads like clicks from race posts.

Kaze and most black people are no different than distressed people all over the world and throughout history. The all fall for the demagogue rhetoric of false leaders. When people have deep long term problems that take years to correct they are always attracted to some "leadership" that blames a historic boogey man for their problems. Adolph Hitler all but destroyed Europe by blaming all the problems on the Jews. The Dixiecrats blame the South's poverty and stupidity on the "Yankee carpetbaggers". The Irish blame the English. Trump can blame the economic despair of the middle class on the "illegals". Blame the aristocrats. Blame the communists. Blame the capitalists, and so on. Black people have been kicked and dragged by whites and have no good reason to trust them, so why not blame them when you cannot put your own house in order? Especially when some "leader" is telling you it's not your fault. Nobody likes to accept blame for their own problems. Nobody. The problem is, you'll never correct them until you do!!

Kingfish said...

Forget those examples. Want to know where you see that kind of rhetoric? The Palestinians. It's worked real well for them, hasn't it? Just replace whites with Jews and its the same message with the same results.

The two sides of Kaze - the educated with white folk reality (not JPS), and his appeal to black rapper Kaze. He knows better with his "grammer". He's a smart guy. Truly, the only people I have ever heard say that we need to get white folk in office is black folk. Logic is, the competitive factions in the black community which don't want the other to succeed.

Forgive me Kaze. Thank you Kaze. It just didn't dawn on me that the problem was that we had the WRONG black folks running things. My bad

Attitude and approach of Jackson's black political class is no different than the MSGOP establishment.

"Farish will be part of my legacy," Franklin says. "It will be here for my kids and my kids' kids. I've preached to other hip-hop artists about being smart businessmen and planning for a time when you might not be doing music. This serves as a living example. I'm making being a businessman cool. That to me is the most satisfying thing, merging those two worlds."

Kingfish cousin Catfish said...

We agree here - "One reason Mississippi is dead last in everything is that there is often a refusal to admit there is a problem."

We disagree here - "The blinders are even more powerful in Jackson where black community leaders are loath to admit anything is wrong."

The blinders are powerful across this state. Everyone points blame and never looks in the mirror. I am disappointed in you cousin for placing the onus solely on blacks in Jackson to admitting there are issues in the metro

Kingfish said...

Fair enough. However, it is the black community that suffers from higher rates of poverty, unwed birth rates, and poor education.

Cool Bidnessman said...

Lemme tell yall summin...hip-hop gonna save Jackson. All hip-hop artistes gonna be smart and cool bidnessmen. In 10 years we gonna be runnin' hip-hop law firms and hip-hop soda fountains and hip-hop day care centers and hip-hop bakeries and hip-hop real estate offices and hip-hop florists and hip-hop medical clinics, all run by smart hip-hop bidnessmen. Dr. DJ Freshy Fresh gon make tha deffest rhymes in his pest control business!

And we don't need no WHITE hip-hop bidnessmen. They all racist.

The most important aspect of running a business and being a businessman is not prudent financial discipline or inventory management or knowing your market or maintaining quality and customer satisfaction. The most important thing is being cool.

I guess I never got that memo.

Speaking of that propaganda, that narrative, does The Kaz have any clue what goes on inside of the black church?

Anonymous said...

Can someone send me a copy of the narrative, I feel left out.

No discussion of Kaz is complete without mentioning Rachel Terry. For a squirm in your seat go over to the CL for her gem of an article in there today. "Intentional criminalization" may be my new favorite term.

He ain't gonna fall for that banana in the tailpipe. His 30-year-old movie references are spot on, just like his hippity hoppity dope def and fresh rapper name.

Nothing says funkyfresh like quoting Eddie Murphy, using ghetto inspired slang, and insisting on being called by your rap handle. That's the man who knows how to fix this city!

Anonymous said...

Could Kaze enlighten lifetime Jacksonians about who are the right black folks to serve the City? Forgive us 20% for possibly supporting the wrong black folks unknowingly.

Myopic Viewpoints Are Contagious.. said...

Is it Kaz or Kaze?

Meanwhile there's this quote from the Blog Owner: "it is the black community that suffers from higher rates of poverty, unwed birth rates, and poor education."

Are you really so simple minded as to not understand the 'drag-down' those issues have on Southern society at large and the Jackson Metro in particular, both black and white? Do you really think 'the black community' is the only one suffering from those realities? We are all in this shit-hole together. There is no island. We all suffer. Employers, small businesses, shops, stores, schools, law enforcement, churches, joggers, strollers, walkers, tourists, visitors, church-goers, developers, entrepreneurs, casual observers, highway workers who pick up litter, cops, elected officials, apartment owners, apartment shoppers, train conductors, butchers, bakers, candle-stick makers. Shit, Man!

Kingfish cousin Catfish said...

"However, it is the black community that suffers from higher rates of poverty, unwed birth rates, and poor education." - that is true and many blacks will not deny that either

But there are things that can be done to the curb the policy, however the state legislature is more worried about a city clerk having to marry two gay people as to getting poor people employed

Rachel already comments here anonymously. Frequently. Hall runs her spouts on Mondays as filler so that he, in turn, can run response letters soaking up more filler inches from his reliable pen pals. Vinson Gibbs also comments here all the time. So, no thanks, already have my fill.

Please explain the 'banana in the tailpipe' suggestion. Is that some sort of prison-humor?

So.... Are you wanting the state to takeover Jackson?

Anonymous said...

@Produce Aisle - it's a line from Beverly Hills Cop (someone linked a clip above) where Eddie Murphy shoves a banana in the tailpipe of a cop car to disable it.

What the hell that has to do with Jackson Public Schools or JSU or some overgrown rapper's bitterness is anybody's guess.

Anonymous said...

5:39; City Clerks don't have the authority to 'marry people'. And if Tommy Head ever goes to prison, 'banana in the tailpipe' will suddenly take on new meaning.

you asked a good question when you said, "Can anyone ever get the courage to stand up and accept fault for anything?"

Here's a start black people do not blame white people for the sake of just pointing fingers, but you have to admit that they are justified in their feelings - if we are speaking about black people in Mississippi and what they have gone through in this state for the last 150 years.

Now here's where you have to hold black people accountable, that they must accept whats happened in the past and continue to make strides to move on from what has happened to their family or friends during those trying times.

We cannot deny that whites have had a financial head start in this state due to slavery and Jim Crow. Between 1887 to circa 1960's there were not many banks who were willing to loan black people money to acquire homes or business loans. That's an advantage whites had as opposed to blacks.

Yes opportunities have improved for blacks, blacks are not being murdered by whites for whistling at white women, or lynch mobs go after black men due to false allegations; however institutional racism is alive and well in Mississippi.

It is getting better, but at a snails pace. Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee and Arkansas are light years ahead of Mississippi in regards to racial reconciliation.

You're welcome to relocate to those places Brad...I mean Cousin Catfish.

Kingfish cousin Catfish said...

@ 7:50am

So you are proud of this dirty house better known as Mississippi?

Alabama is right next door - better roads, job opportunities, school systems, have won 5 national championships between 2 of the major universities. Hell, even when you are driving on 20 east or hwy 80 you notice there's barely any trash on their highways.

The bar is so low for Mississippi to use when it comes to improving and people like you, just say - "you don't like it, well leave"

Kill the apathy, get tired of living in filth and that's when this sh*t sandwich will turn into a piece of filet mignon

Anonymous said...

5:39 and 6:13....County clerks don't have the authority to marry people any more than city clerks do.

You must be the cousin the Kingfish family hopes won't show up at the family reunion.

Maybe we can rap our way to prosperity, Mr. Sho-Nuff. I suppose our future is selling Blockwear T-shirts and locally produced hip hop CDs.

You want to see filth, then drive Capitol Street from 220 to downtown. I'm certain you'll attribute that to the GWC, stealthily driving through West Jackson at night to toss out beer cans and fast food containers. The fact is that it's apathy of the locals who don't care about the fact that they live in filth. If they did, they'd be out picking up trash and taking care of their neighborhood.

Or we could just rap about it and sell t-shirts.

Do you think that might have something to do with the ability to repay home and business loans? It hasn't been that long ago that we got to see what happens when banks are forced to give loans to people who cannot repay them.

Sure you ignore Petal, Pearl, Philadelphia, Picayune, Gautier, Southaven, the list is long just like your excuses to place Mississippi's downfall strictly on Jackson.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
