Muhammad Rasheed - This Zora Neale Hurston quote is the concept behind why whites get mad when you protest the injustice inflicted upon you, and why they conspired to destroy Black-owned media. They hate the competing voice that contradicts how they want to spin the tale of what "really" happened. You NEED to tell your side of what happened, you NEED to filter the data through your lens of experiences, and you NEED to push back when their version of events is in violent opposition to what you know happened. They don't want you to fight back ("uppity"), and they get angry when you do.
You're not supposed to do anything about it, you have been subjugated into a vulnerable state ripe for continued exploitation. The West's obscene wealth amassed from free and exploited labor isn't going to maintain and grow by itself, and YOU, O Black people, are white people's number one cash cow. Do not sit back and allow the bipartisan voice to monopolize the flow of information, especially when Blacks are involved in anyway. Make yourself heard, because your silence is the death of your legacy.
“The 'end of a world' never is and never can be anything but the end of an illusion.” ~René Guénon
“Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished; But the heavens and the earth, which are new, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men” ~2Peter 3:6,7
Muhammad Rasheed - Please stop pretending abortions and police brutality are ideologically opposed, when the murder of Black people is the one thing universally agreed upon on both sides of the aisle.
Lisa Allen - Is this equating a woman's choice and police brutality or mass incarceration?
Muhammad Rasheed - No, this one is just focused on the terror-lynchings of cop killings compared to the medical industry's ongoing reaping of (FREE!) foetal tissue from the Black community. Both represent the support of the murder of Black bodies, and it is definitely a bipartisan support despite the song & dance of the liberal vs conservative teleplay.
The "woman's right to choose" talking point is separate from this particular argument.
Kirb Brimstone - Cop ain't pulling his weight.
Muhammad Rasheed - Sure he is. Random lynching terror by cops keeps the prey in an exploitative mindset ripe for the billion dollar mass incarceration industry. This is an old game with the moving pieces already worked out.
Kirb Brimstone - uh-huh. Give me numners
Muhammad Rasheed - Are you just ignoring my point in favor of your false equivalency fallacy? One kills to spread fear in a subjugated populace, while the other kills for free raw materials used in industry. So what would comparing the numbers prove?
Kirb Brimstone - I'd like comparative numbers. How many black lives has the "policeman" taken vs how many black lives the "abortionist" has taken.
Kirb Brimstone - the cartoon is clearly about taking black lives. I said the cop ain't pulling his weight in this bargain. You seem to disagree. I am asking if you have the numbers to support that.
Muhammad Rasheed - Okay, I see. Your false equivalency fallacy is based on what you imagine the “bargain” to be, which is apparently that they each have an equal quota of bodies to amass. As I explained, there’s no reason for that to be true since they are two completely different institutions (abortion services vs law enforcement) with two completely different approaches to the disregard for Black lives tradition (reaping raw material for science and industrial production versus white supremacist domestic terror).
The abortionist numbers have to be high because the fetal material he is reaping is used in drug, skin care, hair care, etc., industries, while the cops numbers don’t have to be high (compared to the abortion numbers). He’s in the same role his Democrat ancestors were in and just needs to kill Blacks at random to keep the population fearful, no different than how the KKK lynchings functioned.
Muhammad Rasheed - That's why I named the cartoon "Killing Blacks for Fun & Profit" because of the two different approaches and reasons the two institutions take in killing Blacks.
Kirb Brimstone - You know you are the one guilty of that fallacy right? How many balls have been killed (not incarcerated as tour cartoon is about killing) by Cops and how many have been killed by abortionists? It's not even close. Hence " The Cop isn't pulling his weight." You knew you were commuting that fallacy right? That's why you kept mentioning It? Or no?
Muhammad Rasheed - Did you type that with your foot?
It's "not even close" because they do it for different reasons, so the number of bodies each institution amasses doesn't have to match in order to reflect what they both have in common... a callus disregard for Black lives. Your insistence that the numbers have to match in order to reflect the premise is the false equivalency fallacy in action.
Kirb Brimstone - Then next time put "You kill 'em and I'll callously disregard 'em." You know... so the cartoon makes sense.
Muhammad Rasheed - It makes sense as is, and conveys exactly what I wanted to convey.
I'm unmoved by the impotent negativity of the present company who I always disagree with on politics and religion, who believes the cartoon unsuccessful. Once again I disagree with you. Will that be all, Kirb?

Muhammad Rasheed - Blacks aren't supposed to protest injustice because the architects and beneficiaries of systemic racism agreed among themselves that Black people would bear the brunt of injustice so that poor whites would be spared it.
Interestingly, note that the white's knee-jerk reaction to the Black protester is always an assault upon their intelligence ("idiot", "moron"). Did Blacks agree to be the butt of all societal wrongs as sacrificial lambs to help uphold 'whiteness'? If not, then why are we considered mentally inferior simply for demanding our God-given freedom rights?

Rasheed, Muhammad. "The Truth Behind the 'Love Thy Enemy' Doctrine." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 07 Oct 2017. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
Muhammad Rasheed - I believe in the "love thy enemy" concept, but I recognize it was never designed as a universally applied principle per its scriptural context. The Christ Jesus, son of Mary (peace be upon him) was sent with a very specific message to a very specific people: The children of Israel. This was a people who already knew the Word of God, who had already been instructed in scripture, but their practical application of its precepts had devolved into a cold, legalistic religion devoid of the reflected mercy and compassion of that scripture's Divine Author. As is usually the case in a system in which a powerful wealthy elite rule over the common masses, it was the least powerful of society who received the brunt hateful coldness of all legalistic decisions. The lessening of mercy always flows top-down, you see. So when Jesus said to "love thy enemy," he wasn't talking to the people who were getting stoned, but to the self-righteous jackasses doing the stoning, as his admonishments were often directed towards the more powerful in society. He told them to 'turn the other cheek' when they felt a slight which came with forgiving the poor of their debts, forgiving the starving when they were forced to steal bread, forgiving those who in having a harder time in life were more likely to violate societal laws. It was difficult for his people to love the lower classes, because the wealthy & powerful are often aloof and hard-hearted to those they feel themselves better than, and it was to the rich among the children of Israel whom the Christ was sent to deliver his instruction.
"Love thy enemy" was never designed as a universal principle applicable to everyone, but it does have a clear application in the modern Western society. The dominant, powerful class of our day have proven scientifically incapable of feeling empathy towards groups they also hold in disdain, as undeserving of the material blessing that the rich hoard from them and treat as their enemies. To those wealthy and powerful who claim Western Christianity as their doctrine, even as they wage class warfare against the poor minorities, they should know that Jesus' instruction to "love thy enemy" was directed specifically towards them and their ilk.
Melody Winfield - I disagree Muhammad Rasheed. IT IS a universal principle. applicable to everyone e. Jesus wasn't wealthy and he nit only told people what to do, he did it himself. His disciples weren't wealthy either. And he taught them the same principles which they were commissioned to teach. No one is exempt!
Muhammad Rasheed - The Christ was wealthy. Was he not gifted with Frankincense, Myrrh and Gold for his mission? His wealth was for the people, as he personally preferred the selfless life of the ascetic. Wasn't the Christ the same messenger who explained to you the parable of the three stewards with the talents? Recall to mind that the most successful in stewardship was the one who cultivated and invested into the talent until it doubled and tripled in value. Of all people, do you think the Christ Jesus, son of Mary would have been one to instruct the people in wisdom that he did not practice himself? Also as you may recall, one of Jesus' miracles was that he was allowed a high-level precociousness from as early as the cradle, from which he directed the people to attend his affairs. This to prevent the greedy and desperate from devouring the gifts of the Magi, so that when he was finally ready for his mission of prophethood, he would have what he needed to bless those he was anointed to bless. The Christ had money. Be ye not of those who doubt.
The "love thy neighbor" doctrine can be applied universally by anyone who is wise, but it was preached to a very specific people, by a very specific messenger, for a very specific reason. Preached to a people who were told that it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for their selfish, hardened hearts to reach paradise. A people who, even if they had kept the Commandments their whole lives, still needed to give up all their wealth in order to prove they loved the promised next life of unseen spirit more than the material.
A people who -- then as now -- considered the poor their enemy.

Muhammad Rasheed - I took part in the Inktober challenge this year! For those unfamiliar, it's a hashtag movement founded by cartoonist Jake Parker. Originally, in 2009, he made it as a month-long daily challenge to improve his own inking technique, but it quickly went viral and became a global thing. As I created each one of mine, I faithfully posted all 31 inked cartoons in this blog post.
After the first two prompt words leaned themselves pretty easily to the slavery theme, I decided at that point to sub-challenge myself to make all of them slavery related. It turned out to be an intense, dark, disturbing, very cleansing and even spiritual project for me. It even got stressful in the end when Facebook started banning me for posting over a couple of them, forcing me to create an alternate account to keep from missing the daily posting requirement. Yet I made it through, and in the end my very first participation in the Inktober event was very fun and (I think so anyway) successful.
Here were the rules and prompt list words for this year followed by my submissions:
|Day 1: "Swift"|
|Day 2: "Divided"|
|Day 3: "Poison"|

Tariq Nasheed - OJ Simpson is the only person in the history of America to do 9 years in prison for "stealing" his own property.
Muhammad Rasheed - They're sending a message to all the vocal Reparationists.
WLMtoo - Reparations = Welfare
A Life of Love - Really? Are you saying victims of the holocaust received welfare? Tweet wisely.
Muhammad Rasheed - The term "welfare" has been weaponized by white conservatives for obvious reasons, but the majority of free gov funds out of that pie are paid to mega-corporations and white farmers.
They can call it whatever they want, just stop exploiting my people and pay what they owe.
WLMtoo - No one OWES you anything. You get what you EARN. No one alive today has been or owned a slave. If you think your getting paid you're f'd up!
Muhammad Rasheed - I mentioned white farmers get paid free gov money in the form of subsidies as an example. Note that Black farmers are excluded from this. This is but one example of many in which Blacks were excluded from programs designed to build up white people on free handouts, so you could turn around and lecture Blacks about what they need to earn.
Also note the lengthy historic record of envious whites attacking/killing successful Black communities and confiscating their assets.
And also note again the lengthy historic record of whites scamming Blacks in the housing market using redlining, gerrymandering, etc.
You owe alright, and I hope to see it paid out in my lifetime if only to see you in fury over losing your stolen assets to overdue justice.
Have a nice day. :)
WLMtoo - That's a freakin lie
Muhammad Rasheed - Meanwhile, it's the 'freaking' truth you've ducked since Reconstruction, trash. #JusticeIsComing
WLMtoo - If anyone knows about handouts it's blacks
Muhammad Rasheed - No one has received more free handouts than whites. Remember the Homesteading Act? All the cheap loans you and your businesses get?
WLMtoo - Assets? What assets? Boom boxes and Nikes! What do you have that anyone could possibly want? Idiot!
Muhammad Rasheed - For one, you've always lusted after my Black Body for labor. For two, my land that you stole. Next my citizenship as you disenfranchised me.
Next, my Black businesses as you ran your new expressway system through ONLY Black business districts throughout the nation. You've spent the last 500 yrs raping, pillaging, exploiting, appropriating everything Black. Do you even have an identity left, trash?
Other than your raping, pillaging, exploiting, appropriating Euro-culture, I mean.
WLMtoo - What land? Back in mother Africa? It's still a cesspool there. Always will be because black losers never amount to anything.
Muhammad Rasheed - The thousands and thousands of acres of land Free Blacks earned in these here United States of America since the 1600s. We had land. You took it through various confidence schemes, government bullying, and terrorism in the usual fashion your barbarity oozes.
WLMtoo - Now you're defending whites in Europe? Your brothers will take your race card for that.
Muhammad Rasheed - "Appropriating" was an adjective, trash.
WLMtoo - Every day is nice! It's good to be King
Muhammad Rasheed - What would such as you know of kinghood? You who slither around your hoarded mass of stolen property like the devil's imp.
Know you that Justice is Coming, trash. Enjoy your respite while you can.
WLMtoo - You came here with nothing, add nothing. You only take, we'd be a better country without you.
Muhammad Rasheed - Your elitist masters know better, trash. They know who I am, and how they dishonored me to raise themselves and their mongrel imp race up.
WLMtoo - You still have it, it's called a ghetto.
Muhammad Rasheed - The "ghetto" is where your savage leadership forced us after taking our assets, lands and disenfranchising us. Your memory is willfully short.
WLMtoo - What makes you think it's ok to rip whites without getting it back in return. Life doesn't work that way.
Muhammad Rasheed - Whites are the bad guys of the last half millennium's historical record. You deserve a ripping. Stand by. #JusticeIsComing
WLMtoo - Hahahaha! Bring it on boy. 10 million NRA members would love to see that happen.
Muhammad Rasheed - Not a single weapon formed to stop me will prosper. The Lord of Abraham is my Sire, and the laid up wealth of the wicked is my birthright.
WLMtoo - Go visit all your baby mamas today, get introduced to your future drug dealing spawn.
Muhammad Rasheed - The cesspool of poverty left to me after your exploitation will be the very gutter you perish in, trash. Get ready. #JusticeIsComing
WLMtoo - Don't start a war you can't win. We own your world.
Muhammad Rasheed - YOU started this war, trash, and I will certainly finish it. The white supremacy era has come to it's end. #JusticeIsComing
The One God of Abraham owns my world, and you as the squatter are done. Get ready. #JusticeIsComing
WLMtoo - No, that would be you and your Moooslam brotherhood.
Muhammad Rasheed - It doesn't matter under which banner the Black Nation draw our swords under. The One God will bless our holy fight against the oppressor.
It is TIME! Get ready, filth! Can you not feel it?! #JusticeIsComing
WLMtoo - You're a funny guy. Here to make us laugh. Do you see how quickly we slapped down your NFL brothers, put them right back in line.
Muhammad Rasheed - Keep laughing. We'll see together how long it holds up as #JusticeIsComing
WLMtoo - Anytime you're ready boy
Muhammad Rasheed - Clean your neck for me. :)
WLMtoo - Odds are one of your own gets you first.
Muhammad Rasheed - lol At this point it should be obvious that I see through your bs partisan smoke-screen bullets. I think I'm more insulted that you tried that crap on me, than I am of your blatant racism. I think that's my vanity acting up. lol
Muhammad Rasheed - Please note that "Sambo" was an Indian tale (Kipling-era European colonialism agents brought it back) that you appropriated and labeled onto me out of ignorance. Everywhere you turn there's more and more evidence of your thieving in the land you call "western history." Do you think you will somehow not be trash if you cover your filth in the stolen riches of others? Alas! A futile and sad hope.
WLMtoo - Not ignorance, just humor. We think it's funny.
Muhammad Rasheed - You poor white trash had no idea the tale wasn't talking about me, but was from India. It was definitely ignorance. But we'll see how funny you think it when you find your headless soul writhing in hell.
WLMtoo - We'd gladly send you back to mother Africa but even you'd admit it's better here.
Muhammad Rasheed - I don't care to waste the discussion about Africa on one such as you. Just make sure your neck is clean & anointed to receive my blade.
WLMtoo - I'm probably going to hell for many reasons, you ain't one of them. I'll see you there, you can get me a beer.
Muhammad Rasheed - Nay. As a believer in the One God of Abraham, I will enjoy the reward of my Lord. Hell is your portion for your commitment to evil. Trust that you will be too busy experiencing a literally Unimaginable Torment to even remember to think about beer.
WLMtoo - Making threats on twitter will get you banned.
Muhammad Rasheed - Oppressing God's people will earn you hell, trash. I guess that makes us even.
WLMtoo - You threaten to kill and I'm the evil one. You're a confused man. You need a mirror. I'll send you one.
Muhammad Rasheed - I'm just reminding you that the Race War of legend is on its way, and God will be on MY side in it as the believing oppressed. You already know #JusticeIsComing for that ass, so it wasn't a threat. You just don't like to think about it, hence the beer and heroin.
WLMtoo - God loves everyone, even you.
Muhammad Rasheed - Don't presume to speak for my Lord, trash. You chose racism, the hoarding monopoly and classism over God's righteousness, remember? The One God loves NOT those who love sowing evil in the earth! REMEMBER the tales of the prophets!! Your portion is hellfire for your savage deeds, while I'll receive the wealth you've stolen and amassed in this life, and paradise in the next! Glory be to God!
Muhammad Rasheed - I'm tickled by how you got triggered by my "threat" as you called it, while your people have been lynching/terrorizing me for centuries now. The savage imps of the devil are consistently cowardly when they find out JUSTICE IS COMING. The KKK had been hanging me from trees for 150 yrs, yet just the SIGHT of The Black Panthers holding guns made you piss yourself.
And you had the nerve to refer to yourself as a king. I look forward to the Race War, trash. My blade ACHES to destroy you in God's Name.
WLMtoo - My family has been here since 1935, we've never lynched or killed anyone. How many has your family killed?
Muhammad Rasheed - You may toss that lie upon the pile with all your other sins for Judgment, filth.
WLMtoo - My sins of judgement!That's a joke. You've decided every white is the devil and you're going to lay your sword upon them. You're the problem
Muhammad Rasheed - YOU decided to act out the devil's role when you stepped your savage, unwashed hide out of Europe, beast! Does my shining the spotlight on you make you uncomfortable? AYE!! Know you that hellfire will be even MORE uncomfortable!
WLMtoo - I'm done with you. My boyz are here to cut my lawn and clean my pool. Just trying to help a brother up!
Muhammad Rasheed - Do so by cleaning your neck. Enjoy your family.
You are dismissed.
WLMtoo - Never been to Europe, not sure what you're talking about. If I'm blamed for slavery somebody better get their ass here and clean my house.
Muhammad Rasheed - Do you pretend innocence while proudly wearing the badge of white supremacy support as your user name? Go away now.
WLMtoo - All your tweets sound like Samuel L Jackson in Pulp Fiction.
Muhammad Rasheed - And all yours sound like the racist, unrepentant hellbound.
Muhammad Rasheed - I thought you had shit to do? Go away, I'm trying to finish this cartoon and you're distracting me.
WLMtoo - Yep, we're twins, but I'm the better looking one.
Muhammad Rasheed - btw I'll take that as a compliment since Jules was clearly the best character in Tarantino's film folio.
WLMtoo - He was good, much better than Travolta
WLMtoo - Don't draw Muhammad, the Muslims get pissed and will kill you. Then I won't have you to torture.
Muhammad Rasheed - I AM Muslim, you dotard.
