24773: Roberts (news) "They Will Treat You Like Animals"

"They Will Treat You Like Animals"
The Abuse of Haitian Kids at PS 34
Los Angeles, Ca.
1. vicious or violent person somebody who enjoys treating other
people and animals in a cruel and violent way
2. offensive term an offensive term for a member of a people
considered inferior or not as advanced as your own group
Peace to Encarta the Linguists across North America thank you.
Either the administrators of New York City's Public School 34 aren't
hip to semantics, or their most recent interpretation and application
of the term "savage" is entirely incongruent to the discourse of
White-patriarchal-privilege, and most specifically here, the
hastening assault against the Haitian Global Community by a myriad
selection of American society. For further elaboration, please see
As a seasoned and rather proud cynic, there are few displays of
barbarism that tweak the nerves, bring about a spat of fury, a
vitriolic spasm, and what have you. Forget that last bit of deceit.
In reality, all too often, I do succumb to the sexy red temptress of
rage. The latest chapter of rancor and virulence proliferated by New
York Public School 34's Assistant Principle Nancy Miller and
Principle Pauline Shakespeare has my bowels in fits.
"While all my city is heavy I drop elephant shit
Smeared the face of the fascist priest's pulpit"
Zach De La Rocha
New York's cultural cabal stays heavy, dropping fecal matter from the
fuselage of pig despotism, late-night blackface, mayoral-Mussolinism
and the like; Stuka war eagles razing the Black, Brown and Migrant
communities like the Ho Chi Minh trail. For the Haitian Community,
Operation Phoenix leapt through McNamara's porthole of kill-tha-gook
and embedded itself within the psyche of city-commandants. 'Nou tout
Viet Cong' We are all Viet Cong. Savages, in short.
Thirteen fourth grade students on public trial. The jury PS34
populace. The courtroom school cafeteria. The crime being Haitian. In
response to a classroom conflict involving two students, educational
hack Nancy Miller, as white-cloaked-judge in de facto robe, sentenced
the youths to public humiliation and ethnic degradation. As
punishment for acting in the universal vein of childhood, she sat the
children on the cafeteria floor before the student-jury, forced them
to eat their lunch of rice and chicken with bare hands, subjecting
them to a primary-educational-stoning, equipped with demeaning
glances and ridicule per their peers. According to the "guilty"
parties, Miller's articulation was as such: "In Haiti, they treat you
like animals, and I will treat you the same way here." Yes Ms.
Miller, in Haiti, they, 'Blancs yo' (Whites / foreigners / outsiders,
aka UN, U$, France, Canada, USAID, OAS, CIA, 184, Haitian Elite) do
treat us as inferior peoples, acting as only savages can. We expect
no less from you, you studious apprentice. Only through the lens of a
dysfunctional clique of negrophobes could such a valiant people be
"considered inferior." If time travel were possible, now would be an
excellent time to send message to General Le Clerc and Napoleon
Bonaparte. The query: How humiliating was the serving, guerilla style
The plot thickens. Principle Pauline Shakespeare, a sister no less
pause for dramatic effect, a 'fucking' sister exemplified the role of
house-hand, Sanbo, McWhorter, Watts, Powell, Condoskeeza, Cosby,
Blackwell; attempted a cover up, in doing so, efforting to bribe the
gesticulating "savages," rather "animals," with ice cream. Shit, you
know tha ghetto's got sweet teeth. Miller and Shakespeare promoted
the stereotype to the wrong community. In Haiti, we sharpen sugar
cane stalks to pierce United Nations APV's.
Mucho Kudos to Juan Gonzalez of the 'New York Daily News' for
breaking a story, previously solely known to the listener ship of New
York and East Coast Haitian Radio. I'll go on the offensive here.
Those who are morally outraged and shocked require a crash-course in
Jim Crow history. For extra credit, do rent Jerry Bruckheimer's
amateurish, over-budgeted, over-hyped, vituperative, virulent
Hollywood concoction, Bad Boys II, from your neighborhood dope dealer
(Hollyhood Video the pointy cap, sorcerer type of hood of "lynch a
nigga by his toe", as opposed to "Boys in tha Hood"). Will Smith's
gloves are as white as bleach, lips as red as Porsche during the many
scenes in which Haitian's are demeaned, vilified, dehumanized and
slandered with a belligerence not bettered by Jesse Helms. Or, find a
copy of Rockstar's video-gaming filth, Vice City. Deconstruct the
argumentation of genocide: "I hate those Haitians. We'll take them
out, we'll take these Haitians down," uncannily similar logic
permeating the above shoot-em-up pornography (that's how Bruckheimer
does it, PS2's fo real!). Arsenio and Whoopi cooning to Middle
America circa 1990's with limericks about AIDS and Haitians; Abner
Louima, toilet plunger, need I say more? And the savages are?
That the latest colonization, pillage and genocide of the Haitian
People (presidential kidnapping and coup d'etat, February 29th 2004,
10,000+ murdered since, countless internally and externally exiled,
Apartheid on the rise) be ample ammunition to spark the carbines of
dissent is understood. Yeah, the PS34 investigation ensues,
bureaucratic double-speak tight-lipped replies to independent media
intrigues. This drama was authored centuries past by an ancestor by
way of slave-ownership of school Principal Ms. Pauline, The
Shakespeare, William precisely. Moral outrage is the director's cue.
Appealing to the collective conscience of that class history has
proven have none, is no more than propagating a lineage of
perfunctory reforms increasingly insulting to the victims of
injustice. 'Revolution or Reform? Revolution in the Revolution'? My
peoples Rosa and Regis, where tha hell you at?
