Black Destiny and William Bennett
By Waldron H. Giles, Ph.D.
responses by Black people, over William Bennett’s cruel and
bizarre statements concerning the genocide of Black babies, were
to label him as a racist. In the example
he presented, his initial thoughts about Black genocide came too
quick from his lips for Black people to let him off the hook as
a racist. Merely calling him a racist perpetuates Black people’s
long history of being far too kind to their enemies in the face
of their words and actions that could lead to the destruction of
the born and unborn heirs.
person from the age of nine understands the terror associated
with their existence here in the US.
They know, deep within their souls, that their lives are
in serious and continuous jeopardy every moment even as some of
us are in a constant state of denial under the constant
synthetic glow of freedom, justice, and the pursuit of
to our sixth sense, developed via bitter experiences that
accompanied us from the shores of West Africa, we have the
unique ability to penetrate William Bennett’s true meaning as
he hides behind a myriad of excuses of misquotations and
misunderstandings. The Black penetration into the souls of many
of our white leaders began with the 16 million Black souls
consigned to the bottom of the Atlantic as casualties of the
great European and American form of capitalism.
With guns in one hand and a Bible in the other, the
leaders of this land of the free had no qualms about conducting
or condoning syphilis experiments at Tuskegee with attempts to
let this dreaded disease spread within an entire race, which
many believe to be a precursory model to AIDS.
practice of eugenics was started because many of the national
elite decided to do something about the higher birth rates of
the darker races. Some
of the initial eugenic experiments in the US took place in
Winston Salem, using IQ testing as selection criteria; groups of
children were sterilized in order to create a race free of
inferior people. The
Nazis picked up these grossly inhumane experiments and practiced
it on Jews and Russians in slave labor camps established during
the Second World War. No elements of technology were spared to rid this nation of
its Black inhabitants, even levees in New Orleans were blown in
1927 with history repeating itself in
82 years later with a lackadaisical response to hurricane
pursuit of Black genocide is not unique to William Bennett, as
history will attest, and has become ingrained within our
philanthropic, upper societal organizations, and national
foreign policy. Eugenics
gave birth to such organizations as Planned Parenthood and the
UN sterilization programs started under George Bush, the elder,
both aimed at curtailing the global population growth of the
darker races. The
former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, opined that our
foreign policy should be aimed at Depopulation:
“Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy
towards the third world, because the US economy will require
large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad,
especially from less developed countries.”
uses the word depopulation, which is genocidal; however, some
kinder and gentler folk might consider birth control as
depopulation. If we are truly honest, birth control might be a tad too slow
and uncertain to satisfy the likes of Messrs. Bennett or
is not solely a Black issue in the US since other examples are
readily apparent as this nation moved up the ladder of becoming
population of Native Americans was reduced from 16 million to
less than 2 million: since Christopher Columbus landed upon
these shores. Five
hundred thousand Japanese killed by two atomic bombs as the
Japanese desperately looked for a way to surrender with honor.
people understand the sinister implications of Mr. Bennett’s
statement all too well, and were not convinced by his subsequent
arguments around context. He
follows a long line of world leaders who have no compunction
around genocide and color.
Genocide in many respects ingrained in the American and
European psyche just as forgiveness, fear of retribution, and
turning the other cheek is imbedded in the Black culture.
misjudgment Black people make is the failure in exposing William
Bennett and his ilk as supporters, disciples, and practitioners
of genocide and mass murder.
In this situation, calling someone a racist is the same
as calling Adolph Hitler a petty politician.
This misjudgment has a variety of causes, which has
evolved from our many violent and turbulent experiences here in
the land of the free.
people’s continuing struggle for survival forces them to be
too optimistic about their future here in the US.
Therefore, when whites extol their own virtues or speak
of human rights. In desperation, Blacks too readily assume that
the horrors of slavery are indeed history without grasping their
own reality in terms of US induced human suffering in Iraq.
sad reality is that Black people understand Mr. Bennett all too
well and they must do something, and the weak racist
response is at least something!
Yet we realize that if the response is too strong; then
the anger and the wrath of the powerful will descend upon us
bringing those evil times of 19th and 20th century
of us feel that our meager gains accrued since the Civil Rights
struggle will be lost if we create too many waves.
Others feel that our leadership ranks have been weakened
by the upward mobility of our more formally educated brothers and sisters
and our voices now have become discordant and muted. Some of us take the practical route by rationalizing that
“Those who play along, move along,.
those who criticize are marginalized.”
Blacks come in
varying degrees of enlightenment even though all recognize our
Some Blacks hope
that they will continue to be successful in their alien world;
look toward Colin and Condi as living and breathing role models
and as signs of hope for the future of our children.
Buried in the bowels of these hopes, perhaps, just
perhaps, those old days are gone never to return.
This group of
Blacks hope for the heaven with its promise of the mutual peace
and harmony amongst Black and white, and that the great playing
field of life will eventually be level and bootstraps will be
long and easy to grasp.
Their entire world is framed by the surrounding white
culture they emulate, everything of color is inferior, and in
reality, they hate themselves for being born with color, but
this is admitted only within the darker reaches of their souls.
struggle of living is too consuming to worry about the
Bennett’s of the world. In
fact, many believe any change would be a blessing, three meals
and a cot is better than what they currently have.
Included within this group are the believers in heaven
after death and that life is supposed to be one continuous
struggle with some minute relief on Sundays.
Within this group
are the Blacks who are passive to the dangers they face daily,
live out their lives in terror, and feel overwhelmed by the
power that continues to oppress them and their heirs.
The last group is
the revolutionaries who recognize the burning house for what it
is and are busy working to protect their heirs from the
devastation of consummate capitalism.
They yell, shout, scream, and resist with every living
fibre - Bennett and his boys.
It is this group the future of all humanity is anchored
and they are the disciples of Douglas, Martin, Malcolm, Rosa,
and Nelson and follow the paths explicitly laid out for the
people of the Sun. Sadly, there are some members of this group that are
caught up in hate for everything white that they strike out in
counterproductive ways that leads them to a lives of crime and
violence.. These cannot articulate correctly their struggle in true
these times when the world craves for moral leadership, Black
people have an obligation to their ancestors and their children
to identify and confront the William Bennetts of the world.
This becomes our sacred duty to bridge our horrible
history with our glorious future,
perverse nature; of those, who control and inhabit the world of
William Bennett, is that Blacks are portrayed as the ones who
are void of humanity and values but yet have always been ;and
still are used as objects for greed; materialism, and cannon
fodder for wars.
perverseness manifests itself in the spin which worships
materialism, rewards the deceitful, enslaves the less fortunate,
and the meek, and glorifies itself in the misery and turmoil of
others. Among all
this pseudo-glamour and spin, we must not
lose our integrity to the wiles and whims of the
capitalist propaganda that would glorify those with money and
possessions which has been obtained off the backs of our
ancestors and other less fortunate souls.
who act in duplicitous fashions (Bible in one hand and gun in
the other) are not to be trusted and never emulated or
worshipped whether they head a corporation, nation, or kingdom.
Those who would seek to mislead, enslave, and attempt to
create a world in their own perverted image through genocide
must be confronted, exposed, resisted, and politically
the People of the sun must
step up and lead the world back to sanity
is we Blacks who have become the center of humanity by virtue of
our journey through all of the imperialistic hells on earth.
They and they alone have atoned for the ravages of
capitalism and reaped its meager moral profits. It is their time
to lead a world hungry for morality, justice, and honesty to a
higher ground and bring King’s dream into reality.
This is their destiny.

Rudy: I have read your piece. It is
interesting. I do not necessarily agree with all its contents
and the particular perspective. I wonder what you have to say
about China restricting birth of one child per couple. Would it have
been viewed as genocidal if had been imposed by the UN? If a
Nigerian president ordered a similar measure in Nigeria, instead
of the present six per couple as is now the average, he
restricted it to three, would he then be a traitor to the Race
by slowing down population growth.
My suspicion is that this is what is meant by
Kissinger's term "depopulation" rather than as a code
word for genocide, as you suggest. From a sociobiological
perspective, I suspect that genocidal tendencies were
greater among our ancestors than they are today in America. But
you are entirely right racism indeed lays the foundation for
genocidal tendencies and policies. In short, we are not entirely
out of the woods, so to speak.
Waldron: I would like to
differentiate between birth control and genocide. Genocide
is defined as the deliberate destruction of a particular group.
The destruction is propagated along ethnic, religious, or social
Your example of the Chinese limiting births
to one couple was their attempt to slow down the population
growth rates since they felt at the time that their economy
could not sustain the higher growth rates. They have
now rescinded that one child per couple. I was in China
this summer and could not get an answer from anyone as to what
happened to couples who violated this order. In any event,
the rules were not aimed at destroying any particular group
within the Chinese ethnic system.
In fact, certain minority groups were exempt
from this ruling. Muslims, Yaks, and other smaller ethnic
and religious groups were exempt. The Nigerian example is
the same as the Chinese argument. As long as the kings did
not impose the rule on certain ethnic members and it applied to
all Nigerians, I would not call that genocide.
If the application of birth control is
against one ethnic or racial group, then I would call it
genocide. Planned Parenthood comes close to genocide since
it is largely targeted at minority communities. As I
pointed out in my article, Panned Parenthood is an outgrowth of
the eugenic experiments that took placed in the 20's.
This begs to another point that is the earth
has enough capacity to support all forms of human life.
Many of the shortages we face that lead to starvation are really
man-made via the controlling of land. I would say that
Kissinger's reference to depopulation might be considered birth
control had he not tied it to the resources in Third World
nations that the West needs. Oil is certainly behind the
genocide in Darfur. Oil is also behind the Iraqi genocide
with the pollution of Iraq via depleted uranium which will
curtail birth rates and make the oil easier to obtain since
there will be fewer Iraqis to defend their land. I think
birth control is too slow and inefficient to keep pace with
the speed required to tap new sources of natural resources that
are housed in third world nations..
Kissinger is an outgrowth of the Rockefeller
dynasty and this family understands the relationship between
population and natural resources (oil). The more people
there are, the more difficult it is to make larger profits off
their own resources. People have a habit of getting in the
way, look at the insurgents in Iraq. You can exercise much
better control over fewer people. That is why the US never
let the slave population grow to more that 20%. France
lost Haiti due to this population oversight. As a means of
controlling the earth's resources, the west has used
genocide as a means of insuring their wealth and superiority.
As a race that has been blessed with higher
birthrates, we have yet to learn how to take advantage of this
gift and use it to make life on earth via technology, better for
everyone. Pat Buchanan has a book that gives you the white
perspective on their lower birthrates and the ultimate failure
of western(European and white American) civilizations.
I think our western brainwashing prevents us from seeing many of
our threats as clearly as we should and that is why I wanted to
sound the William Bennett alarm.

Salvage the Bones
A Novel by Jesmyn Ward
On one level, Salvage the Bones is a simple story about a poor black family that’s about to be trashed by one of the most deadly hurricanes in U.S. history. What makes the novel so powerful, though, is the way Ward winds private passions with that menace gathering force out in the Gulf of Mexico. Without a hint of pretension, in the simple lives of these poor people living among chickens and abandoned cars, she evokes the tenacious love and desperation of classical tragedy. The force that pushes back against Katrina’s inexorable winds is the voice of Ward’s narrator, a 14-year-old girl named Esch, the only daughter among four siblings. Precocious, passionate and sensitive, she speaks almost entirely in phrases soaked in her family’s raw land. Everything here is gritty, loamy and alive, as though the very soil were animated. Her brother’s “blood smells like wet hot earth after summer rain. . . . His scalp looks like fresh turned dirt.” Her father’s hands “are like gravel,” while her own hand “slides through his grip like a wet fish,” and a handsome boy’s “muscles jabbered like chickens.” Admittedly, Ward can push so hard on this simile-obsessed style that her paragraphs risk sounding like a compost heap, but this isn’t usually just metaphor for metaphor’s sake. She conveys something fundamental about Esch’s fluid state of mind: her figurative sense of the world in which all things correspond and connect. She and her brothers live in a ramshackle house steeped in grief since their mother died giving birth to her last child. . . . What remains, what’s salvaged, is something indomitable in these tough siblings, the strength of their love, the permanence of their devotion.—

Hopes and Prospects
By Noam Chomsky
In this urgent new book, Noam Chomsky
surveys the dangers and prospects of our
early twenty-first century. Exploring
challenges such as the growing gap
between North and South, American
exceptionalism (including under
President Barack Obama), the fiascos of
Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S.-Israeli
assault on Gaza, and the recent
financial bailouts, he also sees hope
for the future and a way to move
forward—in the democratic wave in Latin
America and in the global solidarity
movements that suggest "real progress
toward freedom and justice." Hopes and
Prospects is essential reading for
anyone who is concerned about the
primary challenges still facing the
human race. "This is a classic Chomsky
work: a bonfire of myths and lies,
sophistries and delusions. Noam Chomsky
is an enduring inspiration all over the
world—to millions, I suspect—for the
simple reason that he is a truth-teller
on an epic scale. I salute him." —John
In dissecting the rhetoric and logic of
American empire and class domination, at
home and abroad, Chomsky continues a
longstanding and crucial work of
elucidation and activism . . .the
writing remains unswervingly rational
and principled throughout, and lends
bracing impetus to the real alternatives
