Topic: Kola Boof on Soledad OBrien
Posted By: goodm3
Subject: Kola Boof on Soledad OBrien
Date Posted: Dec 06 2012 at 4:44pm
Does anyone follow Kola on Facebook. Here's what she had to say about Soledad. 

A White Woman (Soledad O'Brien) is given the power to DICTATE to Blacks what "blackness" is....she of an Irish name, white skin & everything but the burden.

She is to define an entire race of people from AFRICA based on the 1 drop
rule invented by the KKK and we're supposed to listen to her and not our
own continent. It's so typically arrogant and AMERICAN RACIST.
```````````````````````````
I don't give a what she's "PART"  https://www.facebook.com/magicone82" rel="nofollow - Charles MagicMan Paxton Jr.  ....she's WHITE. 

This country, America, has got to be the most racist place on earth that she can be called 'black"
but cannot be called what she really is....WHITE. 

And you Brotha Man mothers that don't like the truth. 
You can't possibly love Blackness/Africa yet sit up claiming this is a "Black" person. YOU
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This PROVES how **RACIST** the American people are (including the Blacks). 

Not a single Black person would dare claim that "anybody can be White" (even when they LOOK White). But they will claim that Africans are so inferior that just any 2% mattress- can be a Black person.

The KKK invented the 1 drop rule....to encourage Blacks to breed themselves into bastardization.

Blacks try to uphold this rule for dear life. They are still slaves. And it's a disgrace. But most of all, it shows their UTTER contempt and hatred for Africa and for Black people. The blanket hateful disrespect of claiming a White woman is "Black"----because she feels like it and we're nothing anyway. 

N!GGERS!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I don't give a HOW COARSE that White bitch hair is!!!  https://www.facebook.com/zachzielinski777" rel="nofollow - Zaak Fox  ...what in the is that supposed to mean?

DO Blue Eyes mean I'm white?? Would you make that same claim mother?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have a few drops of TURKISH blood--why can't I do a "White In America' tv. special. Explain that.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This whole nation (America)...is BUILT OFF the hatred of Black people.

They systematically BREEDING the Blacks off the landscape and calling it "love".....but it's really HATE.
If you love someone, then you want them to exist...you want to see them around. You don't erase them.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The POINT is  https://www.facebook.com/kinitrab" rel="nofollow - Kinitra Brooks  ...when will Black women be allowed to speak for their damn selves? Why is it so important to have her White face always claiming to be our spokesperson? As why are Black Americans so comfortable with White-looking people "as Black"? What defect causes you to see the "black" in Soledad but not the more obvious White? 

I'm not against her as a person....but I'm tired of the DICTATING that "Faux imitation" folks get away with. And I'm sick of the Western Blacks always positing White Images (Beyonce, Rihanna, etc.) as Black when they are in fact White Supremacist.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And she goes on and on with other posters..

what you say BHM? I personally like Soledad, but should she have covered the "Black in America" segments?  Should the 1 drop still apply?

The "one drop rule" as been really overstated in the last 2 decades

Black Americans don't use the "one drop rule"... never have to be honest
We use/used a mixture of rules inspired by the "one drop rule" and the "common sense" rule but more so the "common sense" rule

The "common sense" rule is actually understated
There have been many racial-determination court cases that have used the rule of "common sense" than there has been "one drop rule"

I wish people would pick up a damn book, geesh

I'm sure there are 1 or 2 points somewhere in her gibberish rant
But she's about 300 yrs+ too late

We have a community and it's imperfectly made but it's too late to rearrange that ish now and plus, there's really no (political, social, economical) benefit to us in it

BHM erased my a whole post. Screw Kola, she's got issues with lighter blacks. She has issues about not being seen a mixed and is completely moronic and disrespectful. And to think I liked her at a time. I'm so tired of colorism in the black community.. You are black if you look it, you identify yourself as black, and if you have black ancestors.

Soledad has been fooling the world with that perm.  I consider anybody with that grade of hair(child pic) to be Black.  However, Soledad has White children so she should have been automatically disqualified to speak for the Black race.

Don't be sorry cuz Im gonna tell you anyways

It means that the Black community has been constructed by the ignorant practices, rules and laws of racist Whites. As a result we have a mixture of people--some African, some mixed with Native or White and some mixed with all three.

Now, in 2012, it's a benefit to the "Black American community" to have as many people of African descent identify as one community. It makes our numbers larger and our political interests more important and our group more visible

I don't see how black folk don't understand that claiming anyone and everyone as black is a disadvantage to us in many ways…..

Like they have this nearly white woman with white children telling US what it means to be black in America. And we will forever eat that sh*t up. And we will forever breed ourselves out.

I just hope that sh*t doesn't hit Africa anytime soon. I want to be able to go somewhere and see ACTUAL black people and not some 1/4 1/3 1/100 black ish that's accepted here.

Agreed.
 
It's not like people have a CHOICE of what color they turn out to be? Duh! How can you hate light skinned black people? She's just as messed up as those 'White Power' crazies running around in circles talking about how to keep the White race 'pure'. DUH?  They can no more keep the White race pure than they can keep the Black race pure.Confused
 
It is almost a symbionic  relationship at this point - each feeding off the other.
 
Two sides of the same messed up coin!
 
Kola is a nutcase. That rant was pure hatred ... which will never amount to anything Confused because it's just ... poison. I've beem hearing that crap since 1973... means nothing.
 
She just needs to see a shrink and figure out a way to get over herself because the world is not changing for her.

I understand her frustrations to an extent

Our identity has been blotted out, you have to go digging with your fingers crossed to find our truth a lot of the time. And sometimes only certain people are chosen for the public to look to. It sends a certain message subconsciously. I think if who we were was obvious to the world, and most importantly to us, we wouldn't have a lot of the issues we have today. ( Such as, if a light skinned biracial woman who looks white (because I never knew she was half black until now) is telling us about us. We'd know already.) Starting with our own ideas of who we are and what our purpose in this life should be. 

Of course it is now up to us as individuals to be self-reflective enough to define ourselves for ourselves, despite being on our enemy's turn. We are desolate and afflicted. 

Anyway, biracial people exist and if they want to identify as black, they have that right. And if they want to use their white to their advantage since black is such a disadvantage (in society, purposely) then they have that opportunity. As long as they understand that their whiteness is a privilege rooted in hatred and bias, and why someone more black would be frustrated by that. 

Like people who get mad at me because I don't like whites. WTF!! 'you're racist and full of hate' Am I supposed to? Based on my experiences in this world, I effin hate white people. Period. it is what it is. I don't like swirling. I never will because I hate whites. But it is what it is, I can only control myself.

I honestly believe that it would've been the same way had "biracial" always been a category
Except I believe that even more mixed people would hate their "Black" side

If we went by Kola's rule there would be siblings with identical genetic backgrounds claiming two different races. Neither option makes sense but I'd rather claim my family, given the choice.

I sort of understand the point she was trying to make, although I don't much care for the delivery. Her standpoint pretty much erases black people from the diaspora and the complexity of the history, in my viewpoint. But I didn't even know that Soledad had any black in her until I read it in Essence or some other magazine. In light of everything that's going on in terms of colorism and acceptable standards of "black beauty", I can see how annoying that can be. But I don't like the fact that she's taking personal shots at this woman (even though she says she isn't, she is). I usually like Kola but she's becoming more vulgar and basic as time goes by. She needs to cool it down some and make her points in a more articulate way, as she used to. The 2% mattress line is beyond insulting. As if people chose to be enslaved

TBH I think that the media should represent it's citizens in a fair and balanced way

That being said, it's very hypocritical of her to be so concerned with how Black women are viewed and yet she carries herself in such an undignified way

she can go have a seat away from the computer somewhere

no... blacks claiming them. 

you claim those who accept the label or who put the label on themselves.
according to BHM even if someone says they're black and considers themselves black, BHM still wouldn't accept them.
like Ben Justice who rejects the entire label of biracial and says he think it is a pretty term used to erase the history of black americans.
shrugs
tbh bhm is the only place this is an issue bc irl biracials, light brights, high yellas, redbones include themselves in the spectrum of black.
skin tone is not the sole measure of blackness.
i know people who are technically biracial--both parents biracial--but they just say they and they're parents are black.
black is inclusive, white is exclusive
fighting that fact aint gonna help black folk
considering many civil rights leaders have had some white white in them

In middle school when I was 13, I’d be stopped in the hallway, with a question. “If you’re a Brotha Man, why don’t you have big lips?” I was often asked. “Why is your name so weird?” People would apologize for asking me if I was black. I didn’t know how to take the apology. I just ignored them and pushed forward with a quest to become a typical Long Island teenager. I chopped off the end of my name and had people call me Solie, which I spelled with a heart over the “i” in true Long Island high-school-girl fashion. But my hair would never “wing” like Farrah Fawcett’s.

I agree with Koala...Soledad does not represent... I demote Soledad to someone who did a few presentations on tv regarding my race of people.

lmao. the first time i saw her i legit was like "why couldn't CNN find a black anchor." i had to google her. it seems like she identifies strongly with being hispanic maybe moreso than being black. i am tired of her being the mouthpiece. she can whine and say blacks arent accepting her but i mean whites will so she's good. just keep those naps hidden girl.



Her appearance, and that of her siblings, seemed "black" to those around here, but her mother raised them as "classically Latino."

She required a devotion to our family and a strong immigrant work ethic. She always worked; we always worked. She cooked; we ate. She focused on us; we focused. My parents were not radicals as individuals, but their way of life was radical by definition. They were a mixed family in a single-race town.

I dont understand why we should be surprised when a (mixed) Black woman with a White father  marries a White man

nothing about that surprises me... especially after seeing that "pro-Black men who marrry outside their race" thread. You have some fully Black brothas and sistas taking up White SO while simultaneously preaching for the advancement of Black people

I would be disappointed if my kids turned out like that TBH. Most of my mixed friends married Black, so I am hopeful.

Yea but many (Black) people are assuming that their goal is to "whiten" their genes but not every mixed person who marries White has that mind frame, though that may be what they're technically doing

I don't know. We renewed the lease on our loft for 6 months, and he is talking about house shopping. He got a realtor and everything. My sister said I shouldn't entertain the house thing until he proposes. He says he wants to get married, so I don't know.

I did too. I tried. I dated some nice Nigerian guys, but it never worked out. I do love my people though. I love our culture, food, clothing, music, language, etc. If it doesn't work with the current boo, I'm definitely looking for one of my own.

Like they have this nearly white woman with white children telling US what it means to be black in America. And we will forever eat that sh*t up. And we will forever breed ourselves out.

I just hope that sh*t doesn't hit Africa anytime soon. I want to be able to go somewhere and see ACTUAL black people and not some 1/4 1/3 1/100 black ish that's accepted here.


Black in America isn't the same as black in Africa obviously. But go ahead and kick out all the light skinned folk that look white to you and see what we left with.

I'd be ok with that *shrug* I actually like my people and my lineage and what we've fought for and what this generation of people are working so hard to destroy (a true black identity) :)

Oh, Kola...

To all the people who were arguing for pro-black folk to marry white, is Soledad considered pro-black?

What if her kids were "community volunteers"LOL and married white? Would they be considered pro-black too? Where does the madness end.

But what about her? Do yall consider her black? Pro-black at that even though she does "work" for the community and married a white man?

i dont really care tbh. i have no actual opinion on her seed. but their kids, if they marry white, cannot even pretend. her kids can say mom is biracial--i dont think Soledad claims black. her kids will likely marry white and they def. will not be black.  they will be white with some strange in there.
