3.  “I will give you an example of how race affects my life. I live in a place called Alpine, New Jersey. Live in Alpine, New Jersey, right? My house costs millions of dollars. … In my neighborhood, there are four black people. Hundreds of houses, four black people. Who are these black people? Well, there’s me, Mary J. Blige, Jay Z and Eddie Murphy. Only black people in the whole neighborhood. So let’s break it down … Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it. Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He’s a f***ing dentist. He ain’t the best dentist in the world. He ain’t going to the dental hall of fame. He don’t get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He’s just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist.

No matter where I’m at, I’m like, “where the racism at?” I could be sitting down with Regis Philbin, doing an interview, talking about Madagascar 2, saying, “Yeah, Regis, Madagascar 2′s real good, man. I play a zebra again! And right in the middle of the interview, Regis’ll pull a pencil out of his pocket, stab me in the neck and say “take that, ya f***in’ n***er!”

I marched for Yusuf Hawkins [a black teenager killed by whites in Brooklyn in 1989], you know? I don’t totally agree with Bill Cosby. He said it wasn’t racial, it’s a gun issue. Well, it’s a gun-racial issue. You know what makes you approach a 6-foot-3 black guy in the middle of the night? A gun. Paul Blart’s not supposed to have a gun.”

16. “You don’t need no gun control. You know what you need? We need some bullet control. Man, we need to control the bullets, that’s right. I think all bullets should cost $5,000. $5,000 for a bullet. You know why? ‘Cause if a bullet costs $5,000, there’d be no more innocent bystanders. Every time someone gets shot, people will be like, ‘Damn, he must have did something. He put $50,000 worth of bullets in his a**!’ N***as will say ‘I would blow your f***ing head off … if I could afford it. I’m gonna get me another job, I’m gonna start saving some money, and then you’re dead, man. You better hope I can’t get no bullets on layaway!’”

Over-Patriotic White Americans

That’s it. That’s it! What, you think you’re better than somebody from France ’cause you came out of a p***y in Detroit?”

18. “Happy white people’s Independence Day. The slaves weren’t free, but I’m sure they enjoyed fireworks.”

7 Persistent Myths About Ancient Egypt You Will Never Look at The Same Again

cleopatra_coin 
Cleopatra Was Egyptian 
Cleopatra VII Philopator (69 B.C. – Aug. 12, 30 B.C.) is likely the most well-known of all the ancient Egyptian queens. What many people do not know is that Cleopatra was more than likely not ethnically Egyptian.
Born during the Greek occupation of ancient Egypt, Cleopatra actually descended from a long line of Greek Macedonians who descended from Ptolemy I, one of Alexander the Great’s most trusted lieutenants. The Ptolemaic Dynasty ruled Egypt from 323 to 30 B.C., and for the most part, maintained their Greek heritage.
The name Cleopatra was given to a number of the female members of the family. Her mother bore the same name, as well as an older sister, which is why the famous queen is actually known as Cleopatra the seventh. She reportedly was the first member of her family who learned to speak the Egyptian language.
Debates about her ethnicity rage on, but coins minted during her lifetime are likely the most accurate depiction of the monarch.

Interesting Facts You May Not Know About Patrice Lumumba

Patrice Lumumba: Poet, Revolutionary, and Freedom Fighter

PL6
Patrice Lumumba (July 2, 1925 –Jan. 17, 1961) was the first elected prime minister of the Republic of Congo. He ascended to power on June 30, 1960, the date of Congo’s independence from Belgium. Lumumba had a a vision of a united Congo with complete control over its economy and resources.

PL3
In December 1958, revolutionaries such as Lumumba, Shirley Graham DuBois, George Padmore and Kwame Nkrumah came together at the All-African Peoples Conference to plan a strategy for the total liberation of Africans and people of African descent worldwide. It was at the AAPC in Ghana that Lumumba became a known figure within liberation movement circles in Africa and the United States.


PL2
He wrote poems and essays such as May Our People Triumph and Dawn in the Heart of Africa for publication in Congolese journals, earning him acclaim nationally. PL1
In a 2001 report by the Belgian Commission, there had been previous U.S. and Belgian plots to kill Lumumba. Among them was a Central Intelligence Agency-sponsored attempt to poison him, which may have come on orders from U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Lumumba’s dream, however, was not accomplished. After his assassination on Jan. 17, 1961, Mobutu Sese Seko, a pro-Westerner, was installed and supported in office, primarily by Belgium and the United States. During his 30-plus-year reign, Congo amassed large debts, massive currency devaluations and civil unrest.


PL5
Lumumba’s legacy lives on. Countless streets, statues and buildings in countries such as Mali, Russia, Hungary and Cuba have been named in his honor. In 2003, the BBC reported that naming your child “Lumumba” in Africa was likely to give the child a head start in life.
PL7
After Lumumba’s assassination, protesters clashed with Belgian embassies and local police in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and at Trafalgar Square in London. Protestors in London shouted and cheered as the speakers criticized the new Congo regime, and then began shouting “Down with Belgium” and “Down with the United Nations”.

PL8
Lumumba’s political philosophy remains relevant and is embraced as a symbol of African independence efforts. In the 2006 elections, a number of the running parties affiliated themselves with Lumumba’s political philosophy.
PL9
On June 28, 1964, U.S. human rights activist Malcolm X gave a speech at a rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity (a movement he founded) at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City. During this speech, Malcolm X proclaimed “Lumumba [is] the greatest black man who ever walked the African continent. He didn’t fear anybody. He had those people so scared they had to kill him. They couldn’t buy him; they couldn’t frighten him; they couldn’t reach him.” 


PL11
His life and works have been celebrated through books and films. Lumumba is a 2000 film directed by Raoul Peck that focused on Lumumba in the months before and after the Republic of the Congo achieved independence. Africa’s Lost Leader (Life and Times) and The Assassination of Lumumba are perhaps the most popular books celebrating his life.
PL12
Lumumba’s last letter to his wife is written as if he knew he was going to die fighting for his country. He ends the letter with the phrase “Long live the Congo! Long live Africa.”

6 Billionaires You Didn’t Know Spent Millions to Oust Obama

obama adelson
Sheldon Adelson, Estimated Net Worth $37.1B
Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire behind the Las Vegas Sands casino empire, told Forbes in 2012 that he would be willing to do “whatever it takes” to dethrone President Obama. Including spending upwards of $100 million. Adelson’s total investments against Obama are unknown. According to Politico, an estimated $20 million to $30 million of the giving went to groups that do not disclose their donors and had not been reported before. Another $10 million went to Restore Our Future, paying for anti-Obama ads in swing states.
Adelson has maintained his rhetoric against Obama.


obama ken
Ken Griffin, Estimated Net Worth $5.2B
Billionaire Ken Griffin, who runs the Chicago-based Citadel, was filled with hometown pride when Sen. Barack Obama decided to run for president. The hedge fund manager invited Obama to speak to his Citadel employees and raised thousands of dollars for his campaign. The hometown pride didn’t last long.
From 2010-12, Griffin and his wife gave $800,000 to American Crossroads, the super political action committee co-founded by Karl Rove, President George W. Bush’s former adviser. He later gave $100,000 to the super PAC supporting 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Griffin didn’t keep his disdain for Obama to himself. In a 2012 interview with the Chicago Tribune, he said that the country was drifting toward Soviet-style central planning, that the administration had “embraced class warfare” as a “political tool” and that wealthy people have “insufficient influence” in politics.

obama simmons
Harold Simmons, Estimated Net Worth $10B
The now-deceased Dallas oil billionaire wasn’t shy about speaking out against the president. In a March 2012 interview with the Wall Street Journal, Harold Simmons stated, “Obama is the most dangerous American alive because he would eliminate free enterprise in this country.”
According to Forbes, Simmons was the second biggest billionaire donor to GOP candidates and causes in 2012. He gave more than $25 million to Republican super PACs during the 2012 presidential election.
obama koch brothers
Charles and David Koch, Estimated Net Worth $41.3B Each
Charles and David Koch may be the wealthiest and most vocal brothers against Obama’s policies. But while their rhetoric is well-publicized, most notably at their biannual summits of like-minded rich conservatives where Charles once compared Obama to former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, their donations to a political group leave less of a paper trail.
According to Forbes, David held a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser for Romney at his Hamptons estate in 2012. His right-wing think tank Americans for Prosperity spent more than $30 million on ads supporting Republican candidates and condemning Obama’s record. However, as a nonprofit, the organization isn’t required to disclose its donors; the Koch brothers could have donated some of those millions, or not.

obama joe
Joe Ricketts, Estimated Net Worth $1.4B
Chicago Cubs owner Joe Ricketts was embroiled in a scandal in 2012 when a 54-page document was leaked to The New York Times detailing his attempts to fund a $10 million anti-Obama campaign. The proposal included linking Obama with his former spiritual adviser the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., painting Obama as a “metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln” and hiring an “extremely literate conservative African-American” as a mouthpiece.
When news broke, Ricketts denied any involvement. According to The Times, his efforts to put his money behind smearing Obama didn’t end there. Ricketts helped to finance author Dinesh D’Souza’s successful documentary 2016: Obama’s America, which claims to highlight the president’s “anticolonial” views. He also put money behind the marketing of the book that the film is based on The Roots of Obama’s Rage (2010).

Nina Simone
Legendary jazz singer and civil rights activist Nina Simone was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in the late 1980s.
Nadine Cohodas, author of Princess Noire: The Tumultuous Reign of Nina Simone (2012), touches on Simone’s behavior and bipolar symptoms. The 2004 book, Nina Simone: Break Down and Let It All Out, written by Sylvia Hampton and David Nathan, was the first to reveal Simone’s battle with mental illness. The authors describe Simone’s behavior under the condition:
“Nina Simone had a reputation in the music industry for being volatile and sometimes difficult to deal with, a characterization with which she strenuously took issue. In 1995, she shot and wounded her neighbor’s son with a pneumatic pistol after his laughter disturbed her concentration. She also fired a gun at a record company executive whom she accused of stealing royalties. It is now recognized that this  ’difficulty’ was the result of bipolar disorder. Simone reluctantly took medication for her condition from the mid-1960s on. All this was only known to a small group of intimates, and kept out of public view for many years.”

Gray replied: “It feels bipolar. It just has very extreme ups and downs. It’s one thing and then another, and they’re always opposite.”
