Charges of Reverse Racism Are
Answered With My Parable On Bullying
Promoting Clera’s Creative Gifts Drove Someone To Accuse Me Of Reverse Racism

By Kamau Austin, Publisher The Black News Scoop

As you know our publications have a goal to help Black businesses, community organizations, and cultural organizations raise awareness so they can be financed or supported by our community.  We can't expect others to support us if we can't support ourselves.

We aim to do the opposite of mainstream media and show the positive things that our people do in our communities especially to advance and enhance our neighbors.  However, there are times where conservative whites or others try to use our civil rights terminology and language against us by charging "reverse racism" when we advance Black organizations and causes.

I like to deal with data and facts.  However, recently I felt like giving parables or a storied analogy to someone who accused me of reverse racism for promoting a Black holiday gift-wrapping business Clera’s Creative Gifts during the Christmas Holidays.  This business  uses afrocentric and Black images for their gift wrapping products.

Below is the parable I shared with them...

Harold Phifer has announced the publication of his second book, a collection of autobiographical short stories exploring his sad and often appalling upbringing in Columbus, Mississippi.  Kept secret for more than 50 years, Phifer’s childhood was largely forgotten until an explosion during a job in Afghanistan forced him to take some time off to recover in a paradise beach resort in Thailand.

While there, he met an unusual but compassionate stranger who pulled him into a long discussion about his experiences growing up. Hours later, Phifer finally found a measure of peace from the ghosts of his past and began planning out the stories that would later appear in Surviving Chaos. The book is available for purchase via AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Audible.  For More Info Click Here

When I was in elementary school there were 2 bullies, both much bigger and stronger than me who threatened me and tormented me every day. They made my life in school a living hell.

One day they did their routine of pushing me around. Something in me snapped and I went into some survival altered state and beat the crap out of the closest bully to me.

I didn't know I had that combative mode in me.

The teacher, a young white woman -- not that really matters, yelled at me and grabbed me. To her I was a bully and wayward child who was out of control.

To her I was the problem.

She never took into account that those 2 bullies tortured me and bullied me for months and I was acting in self defense. But you know what? Those 2 bullies never bothered me again in school.

The conversation after this story share went in another direction away from the reverse racism claim against me.  It diffused the claim.

The next time someone accuses you of reverse racism charges for promoting Black success or empowerment maybe share an analogy, parable or story with them.  Your story may be more impactful than mine in making a point.
