Van Stone: Trick Question- So Kamala Harris Doesn’t Even Know How The Black Issues In Jamaica And India Have Always Been The Black Issues In Black America? Name-calling White Eyes Is For Whom And Why? See the image below? It’s a fascinating photo of beautiful females identified as school-age youth -as young as age 14 and up. They are of Jamaican-Indian heritage. We love you girls! We love you for what you are doing- making the Black Experience look continually good and fresh and law abiding.

Van Stone: Trick Question- So Kamala Harris Doesn’t Even Know How The Black Issues In Jamaica And India Have Always Been The Black Issues In Black America? Name-calling White Eyes Is For Whom And Why?

We here in the U.S. are well aware that you have problems-many! And very few there in India-Jamaica can seem to solve them. And we here in the U.S. have the answer. But the answer for sure isn’t Kamala Harris.

Wait. For sure, none of the females in the photo is Kamala Harris? Really?

Nevertheless, the females look like some students who could experience going on a bus ride to any school anywhere in the world. Going on a bus ride during desecration in the U.S. perhaps?

What does the Jamaican-Indian culture have in connection with being Black in America? Everything about the Jamaica and India We Positive Image Black Folks know.

Jamaican Peoples! A little of this, a little of that. Place the West Africans, People of China, People of India, People-of-The-Map-of-the-Middle-East-Territory-As-We-Know-It-Today for over 350 years.
That’s right folks, the Middle East is Africa just the same as Egypt is Africa. Always have been. Always will be to US.

The girls in the image most likely were schooled that the great heroes of Old Jamaica fought with their lives for liberty.

The Black people of Jamaica fought for freedom to stand up against oppression because they had already known about how the original Black peoples were in America as owners of lands and explorers of more lands that would be theirs.

Once breaking free from their oppressors, the Out of Jamaica histories began to take shape forming an ever-bonding relations between the Jamaican culture and the Black American culture.

Women were first, children were second, and men were last in line of all virtues and values of family life. The Black American Experience only knew order and value and leadership as it was in this arrangement of the way of life and Black Americans.

Only after the White eyes begin to get control of all things possible, land and finance, did the Black American Experience, be it groups of peoples of Jamaica, India, China, go terribly wrong.

But who were and still is the White Eyes?

American Indians, or if you prefer to name-call them, Native Americans, identified abusive groups of White peoples as the White-Eyed-No-Soul. The White Eyed disliked groups of Black people. They are the ones who worked very hard to keep other groups of White peoples from learning that the skin complexion of the Native American is a dark-skinned complexion, so dark that it’s as black as the modern-day street.

The White Eyes created false skin complexion charts spreading the lies across the continents that Native Americans skin colors are very light-skinned, olive-skinned, and red-skinned nothing even close to the dark-skinned group of peoples of Africa. But since when was it that olive is a color on any color chart?

But, because groups of Black peoples also disliked other groups of Black people, the original Native American name-called Black people in America who don’t like other Black people, White Eyes also.
You would think that Kamala Harris would be having a discussion about these things, the Black Experience in America. But since Harris wants the Black vote without the hard times of the current Black vote I will enlighten you a little about what’s happening to our Black brothers and Black sisters in both Jamaica and India. Don’t be shocked that being Blacks of Jamaica and India sounds just like as if somebody was talking about being Black in America today.

Still, in 2019, Jamaica police commit 'hundreds of unlawful killings' yearly. Police officers in Jamaica carry out unlawful killings on the orders of state authorities or with their complicity, evidence gathered by Amnesty International suggests.

Still, in 2019, India’s abuse of women is the biggest human rights violation- at least to many.

Tragic rape cases have shocked the country. But the everyday suffering of 650 million Indian women and girls goes unnoticed.

The culturally sanctioned degradation of women is so complete that the prime minister of India, Narendra Modi, launched a national programme called Beti Bachao (Save Our Girls).

This violence is buried in the training of women in some deadly habits that invite human rights violations, but that are considered the essence of good womanhood.

One lesson in India is teaching girls to be afraid of their own bodies. When a girl is not supposed to exist, 1.3 billion people collectively pretend that girls don’t have bodies and especially no sexual parts. If girls do not have bodies, sexual molestation is not possible, and if molestation does happen, it has to be denied, and if it cannot be denied, the girl must be blamed.

I could go on about what’s happening today in Jamaica and India and how the abuses don’t seem to have an end in sight. Women out of Africa, into India, out of India into America have lost their own empowerment to lead men toward the protection of women and women’s human rights.

There was a time, long ago when women actually were leaders of men for the sake of keeping the whole community safe and secure. That time was out of Africa and into India. Out of America into the Islands.

Van Stone: Trick Question- You Mean To Tell Us That You Didn’t See Kamala Harris and Jessie Jackson Deny Their Black Peoples And Betray The Black Peoples? Kamala Harris Is No Michelle Obama? Really? Which U.S. Constitution Is Candidate Harris Against?

Van Stone: Trick Question- You Mean To Tell Us That You Didn’t See Kamala Harris and Jessie Jackson Deny Their Black Peoples And Betray The Black Peoples? Kamala Harris Is No Michelle Obama? Really? Which U.S. Constitution Is Candidate Harris Against? 


Kamala Harris, a Black woman, running for president of the U.S. Harris already is going nowhere because she has denied and betrayed the groups of Black American Peoples. Born in California, identified herself as a Indian-American, Harris would like to have the Black American vote just as bad as all of the other presidential candidates want to. But there is no other group of peoples knowing more about Black History as much as Black Americans. Black Americans know that groups of oppressive White Americans dislike Black folks. And Black Americans also know that groups of oppressive Black Americans dislike Black folks.

When you are identified as a Black person in the U.S. and you deny groups of Black people, be your denial be the African American Culture, the Native American Culture, the Jamaican American Culture, the Mexican American Culture, etc.- all of these groups of Blacks of America peoples- to do that is, betrayal.

In 2019 as well as in the past times, Black American men and women who like other Black Americans are wrongfully incarcerated, filling up the prisons everywhere you can see in the U.S. An alarming rate of damn near 80% of Black Americans who like other Black Americans are in prison- more men.
Truth be told, in the U.S. it’s the Black Americans who dislike other Black Americans- free to constantly roam about- very little prison time- more men.

Of the 15% of Black Americans who like other groups of Blacks in America that are some of the most top sophisticated, law abiding citizens, focused on family, intellectuals and individuals- making up the rear guard helping the women, children and men, in that role, in that order of things to persuade the power of the Black vote in the U.S.

Just think, if the incarcerated, be their incarceration of a convicted federal level crime or not, were not denied their right to vote, how much more would the Black vote be in demand?

Black History is the storyteller of groups of Black peoples Out of Africa, Out of India, Out of China, and of course, Out of America and how the Black woman was the leader- then came the children- lastly came the man, in that order. Go as far back as the People of the Nile, the People of India and even the People of Europe and you will find Black History telling the story that women were the equal of men and how the men primary role was to keep the woman in an equal role and as the leader.
But Kamala Harris concept of leadership and the Black community is men should be the leader- what men? There are only 2 groups of men who are a part of the 2 groups of Races in America. The White Race and the Black Race.

Harris is not seeking the presidential seat to reduce the incarceration of the groups of Black peoples in America. If becoming president elect Harris seeks to stay the leadership of the oppressive White community- thereby, men shall continue to the leader, the leader of the so-called FREE WORLD.
If the Black American Experience doesn’t change when there comes a time that all groups of Black Americans reach equal grounds be it family, lands and financial, all together with the White American Experience it will be oppressive White men who continue to have stolen the lead of the woman in the role of the way of life.

How is a positive woman ever going to be able to take the lead without there ever being a positive man nearby all ready to ensure that the woman is successful? The positive woman chooses very carefully the positive man…

This leads me to Jessie Jackson, the not so- positive man.

It was Jessie Jackson, the informant during the life time of the X and MLK and other great former Black leaders of the U.S., the instigator, the Black man who dislikes groups of Black people, who made false claims telling the U.S. Gov. that all groups of Black Americans prefer to be name-called African American.

Civil Rights and Human Rights and Voting Rights were all means to and end of oppression against Blacks in America and Blacks of America. But Jessie Jackson really never wanted an end of oppression against Black Americans. How could Jackson actually want Black folks to keep hope alive while at the same time helping to create a culture-target of African Americans who would be targeted, singled out and then oppressed more so than all of the other groups of Black peoples in America?

The African American Culture had to learn quickly to try to put a spin on the name-calling African American making African American one of the most dynamic groups of Black Culture in the history of the world- all by their lonesome selves. Jessie Jackson was nowhere to be found after he started his all Black Americans prefer to be called, so and so havoc.

Once again, how could the Black woman of America take the lead and be her role, not play her role as original leader in the Black communities of the world?

And then came along Michelle Obama, a Black woman. Most Black Americans who like other groups of Black Americans recognized how and when Michelle Obama was actually taking the lead- making it ever so clear to all Americans be they White Americans or Black Americans that Black American Experience Issues come first on the agenda of service, gratitude and restoring in America.

Harris is no Obama, Michelle Obama that is. It was Michelle Obama who reminded Americans about the first Constitution of the U.S. not the current U.S. Constitution. The current U.S. Constitution is a design packaged to ensure that no other groups of peoples, be they groups of White peoples or groups of Black peoples, -only the dominate groups of White peoples, the White oppressors against all except for their other dominate groups of peoples who are in full agreement, - shall have family. That’s all you need is family, any type of positive family- groups of people who like you and you like them too- to make it in America.

This is the U.S. Constitution that Harris is for- she swears by this U.S. Constitution as she sees herself as the Black American who is Indian-American first and foremost in America.

There was a first Black U.S. president during the first U. S. Constitution. And his name wasn’t Obama.
The first U.S. Constitution was drafted, stolen from the Native Americans in conception. You see, the Indians of America already long been had a constitution as the original groups of Black peoples were here. And the women were the leaders, then the children, and last was the men.

From the conception of all of the U.S. Constitutions and their changes at no time has the woman been included to be recognized as ANYTHING. This fact I guarantee that Harris will avoid in her all out effort to be the next president of the U.S.

Van Stone: Trick Question- Forget? In 1985 Mayor Wilson Goode’s Police Dropped A Bomb On A West Philly Neighborhood Killing 11 And Destroying 61 Homes? Good Was The Best Mayor Philly Has Ever Had? Huh?

Van Stone: Trick Question- Forget? In 1985 Mayor Wilson Goode’s Police Dropped A Bomb On A West Philly Neighborhood Killing 11 And Destroying 61 Homes? Good Was The Best Mayor Philly Has Ever Had? Huh?


You got to be kidding. Wilson Goode was Philadelphia's greatest Mayor? The only thing that Goode was Philadelphia's first Black mayor.

Get real. How can the mayor be a scapegoat when he is the boss of the police and fire department? And your comments are just one reason why terrible groups of Black peoples went out and voted for Goode to have a second term.

You are probably just one of the many Black people who dislike Black people. I told you that I have a name for people like you… White Eyes- meaning a Black person who dislikes other Black peoples and oppresses other groups of Black people. White Eyes.

Goode did nothing for Black Tangibles...

Blacks have been in more oppressive and discrimination situations living in Philly when Goode was mayor. Improvements for Blacks in Philly came along only after Goode, since mayor Rendell and especially since mayor Street. Goode betrayed the Black Community. He had no vision for Black Tangibles.

He was a mean and grumpy individual who didn't have the patience for youth or adults trying to cope with crisis.

He exploited the Blackness.

He created a non-profit organization which he named after him and got lots of money because of it. He hired no Black people although he had the funds that was supposed to be used to do so. He demanded of all Blacks who were interested in working with kids to volunteer meanwhile he made sure that Whites who demonstrated no proof that they were interested in working with kids got jobs.

Drop a bomb in a residential neighborhood be it a White neighborhood or Black neighborhood?

There was no good reason to drop a bomb in a residential neighborhood.

And for the record, the Philadelphia fire dept is one of the best, if not the best, fire department when it comes to big city first aid and cpr and disasters responses. So, don’t go hating fire personnel, especially Philly’s finest fire personnel, the Phila. Fire Dept. We love you Phila. Fire Dept. When have you ever read a story that the Philadelphia Fire Dept willfully schemed to ignore a fire just because it was in a particular neighborhood? Fire while Black? Only Driving while Black is a problem in big cities. The Philly fire department will go anywhere, even out of Philly if there wasn’t stipulations that prevents them to do that.

Anyway, back to the 63rd and Pine Street neighborhood that had no protection against Goode’s bomb- The neighborhood burned due to a bomb not materials that may be associated with house fires.
People keep old paint and whatnot in their homes which may be a cause for a house fire to happen.
But since when have you ever heard that most people, especially Black people, keep old bombs in their houses which may be a cause for a house fire to happen?

And finally, during the Goode bomb drop there were Black police officers as well as Black firemen qualified to do their jobs.

If Philadelphia had a mayor during the Move group era who actually had good common sense, not Goode as a name, most likely Philly wouldn't have had to cope with the death of small children and miles of residential neighborhood being ruined.

If you have some better info about Goode let’s see it. Otherwise, Blacker Pride has absolutely nothing to do with a person who just so happen to be born Black.
