An Old Black Veteran Speaks His Mind

I have no way of verifying this.  It was sent to me by a friend of mine who I think is reliable and he admitted up front that since no name was associated with it, he could not verify it and he was also concerned that even if he could it would endanger the person who wrote it.  Symptoms of the times in which we are living.  So I'm putting up my Uncle Remus picture to go with it.  It rings true, but I don't know.

I was told by my parents (yes, a married man and woman with my last name), that I was nigger.  We lived in “ Nigger Town ” in a small Texas town, no A/C, grass growing through the floor, no car, no TV.  We washed our bodies with lye soap that my mother made, by hand.  I thought I was a nigger, until I graduated high school, went to college, did an enlistment in the Army, and got a job.  I am now retired, own my own home, have 6 children by ONE WOMAN, and we all have the same last name.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts, a Master’s Degree in Sociology.  My retirement, VA disability from combat in the Korean War (I only have one leg), and part-time pay in a local college, is about $125,000 a year.  From dirt poor nigger, to old, black, proud American.

Yes, I am black, and I can say “nigger”, because I understand the true meaning of the word.

Let’s clear up a few things about the Michael Brown incident.

-Fact:  It is not called "shoplifting or stealing", it's called "robbery", which is a felony.  Brown stole something and assaulted someone, that means ROBBERY.  It’s on video, and it’s a fact.  Not shoplifting, not theft, not “lifting” a few cigars, but ROBBERY!

-Michael Brown, like Trayvon, was portrayed by the media as a “little black boy”, cute little headphones, and his cap and gown photo, gunned down by a ruthless police assassin, executed by “whitey”.  First, I have never seen a cop drag a person into their car’s driver door to arrest them.  So, let us be clear, Michael Brown was a nigger; a sorry assed, criminal, hoodlum, nigger.  Nobody wants to say that, but I will.  He had a criminal record a mile long, was known for numerous assaults, robberies, including the one you saw with your own eyes, and still refuse to call it a robbery.  He was, like so many others, living a life that he thought he was “entitled” to,  just for being alive.  Gangsta rap, weed, drinking, guns, and those stupid-assed low profile rims, makes him some kind of bad-ass nigger. 

-I have fought communist Chinese and North Korean soldiers in the 1950’s with more honor than that nigger.  Yep, I peeled potatoes and shot communists.  That’s the only job a nigger soldier could get.

-Rodney King?  Black Riots!

-Trayvon?  Black Riots!

-Hurricane Katrina?  Black Riots!  Stealing TV’s, designer clothes, etc.

-O.J. Simpson kills white man and white woman, found NOT GUILTY?  Did white folks riot?  Nope!

-In fact, when is the last time white people rioted?  Civil War, maybe?  That’s because they are, relatively, civilized people, much like many black Americans.  Protesting is one thing, hell, I’m all for it.  Even if you are an ignorant idiot, you have a right to protest.

-Stop only showing the young black "cap and gown" photos of Michael.  Charles Manson may have a few of those laying around, as well.  Show the nigger "gangsta" photos of the "poor unarmed teenager" (grown man) pics that have been removed from his Facebook page, holding the loaded pistol, smoking weed, with a mouthful of money.

-Militarization?  The stupid-assed media that publicizes this has no idea what “militarization” really is.  Cops wear helmets and vests, and drive armored vehicle because unemployed niggers thrown bricks at them, moron!  You put on an "Adam 12" uniform and walk down the streets of Ferguson during the criminal riots.  I can guarantee that you'll jump into the first armored "military tank" that you see.

-You only "want the police" when you "need the police", otherwise, you mock and fear what you do not understand about the police.  And by the way, the police are trained to take your shit, but I wouldn't fuck around with those Army National Guard, they aren’t as well disciplined “culturally” to take your shit like police do every day.  They will ventilate your black asses with M-16s, with military precision and extreme prejudice.

-And finally, the way we protest and demand justice, is run down the streets breaking shit, looting stores, and acting like a bunch of untrained monkeys?  Hell, after Rodney King, criminal niggers were actually killing people, thinking they were entitled to be worse criminals than they already were.  For those black criminals that do that, you are a disgrace to your race, inflamed by idiots like Al Sharpton, instead of listening to logic from proud black Americans, like Bill Cosby, Samuel Jackson, Colin Powell, Allen West, me, etc.

-You blame white people for your ignorance, criminal acts, unemployed laziness, etc.

-You blame white people for 89% of the prisons in America being full of blacks.  They did nothing wrong, the racists white cops framed them all, right?  No chance at school, no chance for college, military, employment?  BULL SHIT!

-More niggers kill niggers, than niggers killing whites, whites killing niggers, and whites killing whites….COMBINED.  I find this astounding.

-It's not white peoples' faults, the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by a white man years ago.  You can go to school, get a job, buy a house, and vote, JUST LIKE WHITE FOLKS!!!!   You are not a slave, you are not discriminated against!  Slavery is abolished, and nobody alive today, was alive when it was popular.  Get over it!  You are discriminated against because you are a criminal, sorry-assed nigger.  Otherwise, black Americans are treated like everyone else.

-If you choose to create "baby daddy and baby mama", and fake disabilities as an excuse for laziness to draw social security disability…… instead of husband, wife, family, job, mortgage, it's YOUR FAULT, not white folks.  And there are a lot of proud black Americans that will tell you the same, as I AM ONE OF THEM!!!

-Remember, the way you act on the camera, is remembered by everyone who sees it.  They will never forget it.  It shows them how you, as the black race, responds to situation that don’t particularly go the way you think they should.  It will become a reference standard, something they expect from you when the next media report doesn't go your way.  Stop being stupid niggers, and be a proud black American.  My parents raised me well, but they were wrong about one thing, I am not a nigger.

I will not be around long.  While my mind is still sharp, and my aim is still good, my body is eating away with cancer.  It started in the prostate, and is spreading rapidly.  After I die, I have asked my children to publish my writings, and include my name.  Although I am not expecting any miracles, I can only hope that American will stop blaming color, start blaming criminals, and see people for what they really are.  We have too many countries that want us dead.  We should not be fighting each other.


  1. Mr. Schneider, did you write this article?

  2. No ... if you read the intro you'll see what I know about the post. It was sent to me by a friend who also expressed uncertainty about its provenance. I published it because I thought it had the ring of authenticity having known some old irascible black non-coms in my life. We live in a time when everything is sexualized, racialized, politicized, monitized but not very rational. So I thought I'd put it up.

  3. Colonel Buster (USAF T-Birds, 1965-66)

  4. It is cowardly to publish these words, and I wish you would have refrained from doing so.

    (I have seen this published elsewhere, and I'm adapting my response from the original comment I left when I first saw it.)

    Just so you know, use of the word "nigger," is not always offensive to me. In many cases, I find it helpful to place certain attitudes and mindsets in a historical context. When I hear someone use the word "nigger," it helps me to identify their overall demographic makeup and gives me a clue as to what their attitudes might be about race.

    In this case, it is as I suspected. This writing is thoroughly and indisputably affected by the stain of racism, and I *do* find it shocking that you felt it appropriate to forward, even anonymously. Even though some of his points about personal responsibility contain small nuggets of truth, I find the tone and content of this piece of writing overwhelmingly offensive, and I suspect that it was written in an attempt to create a caricature of conservative black thought, not by an actual black person, but by a white person infected with such a thoroughly institutionalized sense of racism that, like a fish in polluted water, it cannot even comprehend much less recognize its toxic presence. I know many black people who have conservative leanings, and I am confident that every one of them would be horrified by those words.

    This piece of writing (I refuse to dignify it by attaching to it a quasi-journalistic term like "article") is so horrifically racist that I'm having a hard time even understanding how you might've thought this might be okay to post, and makes me suspect that perhaps you have been the victim of a vicious prank whereby your blog security was compromised and someone posted this on your behalf.

    I'd be happy to dicuss these issues in greater detail with you or anyone else who wants to discuss the issues respectfully, but I cannot engage a piece of hate speech masquerading as anti-PC bravery. If this person were so brave, they would attach their name and face to these words, so that I and others who stand for decency and righteousness can call them to account for their wicked attitudes about my brethren.

  5. Well Jelani -- did you have anything substantive to say or is this just you playing the "I'm offended" card. I don't do "I'm offended" cards because frankly I don't care whether you're offended. Being offended is an emotion. Be more specific if you want to engage the unknown author. We are living in a country where there is a lot of diversity and that means there's plenty to be offended about or you don't have any standards at all.

    So be specific or shut up. As for "hate speech" that's just another "I'm offended" card. Do you have any specific data or principles, or anything fact based and principle based to talk about or are you just venting your spleen because you don't really have anything to say?

    1. What the hell are you talking about? His entire comment was better written and more substantive that this drivel you posted from an anonymous, yet somehow reliable friend (undoubtedly now, yourself.) I believe the point he's trying to make is that this whole piece comes off as some asshole with a blog looking to squeeze "nigger" onto the screen as many times as possible to, what, promote an honest discourse on race relations in America? Here's a tip on journalistic credibility: Cite your sources. If you don't have any, you're posting bullshit. And also, your black friend-of-a-friend may want to reconsider Bill Cosby as a positive role model for the black community.


  7. It smells like Klan. Seriously. These are barely-tweaked grievances that are classic KKK and white nationalist. Anyone familiar with their literature would see this as coming from a white guy in black face.

  8. I can't read the mind of the author. I've never knowingly met a Klan member. But since I've just watched the mindless destruction in Ferguson after the decision that Wilson had not done anything wrong (a decision that based on the facts I've heard seems appropriate) I have to say that the points made fit the actions of the black community. It's sad but they have to take responsibility for their own actions. I don't care how angry you are. It doesn't justify destroying your own neighborhood and the businesses that bring goods and services to you. So I respectfully disagree.
