Good morning, family! After much reflection and soul-searching, I’ve come to the conclusion that my previous political ideas and activities were misled and inaccurate. For this reason, I”m moving to Britain, marrying a white woman I met at a Republican convention, and will begin to write books and deliver speeches explaining how racism no longer exists, how Black people are to blame for all of our problems, why ancient Greece is the cradle of world civilization, and why cultural assimilation is our best choice going forward. Because I believe in organization-building, I’ve started the Uncle Rawkus Club and Ronald Reagan Publishing Inc. to spread my new ideals. I hope you will support my new mission. Hakuna Matata!
Given my political past, I owe my faithful readers an explanation. I do so with the following points:
- Based on my new research, the TransAtlantic Slave Trade was a hoax, and whites never participated in such a thing. African people traveled to parts of the Caribbean, North and South America on their own and volunteered their free labor for 400 years.
- Greece, not Africa, is the actual cradle of world civilization. Ancient Greece created the foundations of math, law, science, philosophy, religion and art from which the entire world borrowed and benefited.
- Malcolm X and Marcus Garvey were FBI agents sent to warp Black Americans with hatred and finger-pointing. Their objectives were to divide the Black community and set us up for a race war we’d lose.
- “Race” is a social construct developed by Black people to degrade innocent white folk and engender sympathy and pity
APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS!
The only way I’d believe and write any of that crap is if someone abducted, labotomized, and drugged me!! But since I have your attention, on a serious note, I have created a campaign to donate 3000 copies of my book Truth for our Youth: A Self-Empowerment Book for Teens, to schools and youth development programs throughout the United States. To accomplish this, I created a page on Gofundme.com. Please visit the link and read more about this campaign. Then if you are willing, please donate what you can and share the link with friends, family members and co-workers. Thank you.
