a person who believes that the white race is inherently superior to 
other races and that white people should have control over people of other 


A few days ago, I had the distinct misfortune of seeing sheer dumbassedness at work. Yes, I know that isn’t a real word, but it’s the best way to describe the Tweets coming out of Tariq Nasheed about Daniel Holtzclaw and Michelle Malkin. Always desperate to gain attention, he chooses race baiting over intelligent conversations, and this one was no different.  You see, Tariq Nasheed has decided that a Japanese-American bi-racial man and a Filipino woman are white supremacists.  WHITE supremacists. Let that sink in for a minute.

I don’t mean to offend any bi-racial folks or Filipinos either, but that isn’t exactly what I would call white. Unless you are Tariq Nasheed. I suppose his idea of white is everyone that isn’t black? Sadly for him, the real world doesn’t work that way. He believes that true white supremacists are using “less white” people to infiltrate society or some such bunk. I swear to God, I can’t make this garbage up.

I’m guessing the guys in the Aryan Brotherhood missed that meeting that allowed for Asians to be co-opted. Yes, he clearly shows his own bias all through his many unvaried tweets about white supremacy. I spent a good portion of my day yesterday alternately going through his twitter feed, and throwing up in the back of my mouth. My takeaway is that unless you exalt every black man and woman, put them on a pedestal, accept that they can do no wrong, and believe that they are superior to everyone, Tariq Nasheed will call you a white supremacist.

I have friends of all different races. When I talk about them, or introduce them, I don’t say “My African friend” or “My Asian friend” or “My Mexican friend.” This makes me racist I suppose.  At least in his eyes. The very things he bashes and trashes in the Daniel Holtzclaw case are the same things he demands be given to black men and women. (You know, those pesky constitutional rights)  He obviously is one of those headline skimmer types. Actual research is beyond him, or he would have known that Daniel Holtzclaw didn’t target black women, but the two detectives that “investigated” this case sure did. Now, I ask you, if you feared you had a serial rapist on the loose, would you only interview one race? Or would you talk to every woman he came in contact with? The detectives targeted women that they felt would be the best manipulated.

Tariq Nasheed’s hue and cry about the DNA of a child found on Daniel Holtzclaw’s zipper is patently ridiculous. You can bet if he himself were charged with this crime, he’d suddenly be all about the realities of secondary transfer DNA. But for now, he’s decided that even the independent experts in the amicus brief are racist, too.

I could go on and on, picking apart his ill-formed arguments in minute detail. I won’t, though. It wouldn’t change his mind, nor would it change his race baiting ways. All I will say is that for a man that likes to point fingers and cry foul, he’s a bit disingenuous himself. Sadly, he fails to see that dealing that white supremacist card from the bottom of the deck has grown very thin from overuse. He’s turned into a caricature of himself, looking like a combination of children’s stories from Brer Rabbit, Chicken Little, and the boy that cried wolf. (I’m sure he’ll find that racist as well, because…RACISM) He does a greater disservice to his followers than he does good, and that’s a shame. He has an opportunity to use his voice, heard by many, for so much good. Instead, he strives to achieve nothing but divisiveness.

Feel free to read his twaddle and make up your own mind. Just like with the Daniel Holtzclaw case, I won’t tell you how to feel. All I ask is that you do your own research and make up your own mind. Don’t let others make it up for you. Each person has their very own brain for a reason. Use it, and stop letting others think for you!


  1. Why is so easily believed that Officer Edwards raped these women? When only Sherri Ellis was the only victim that described the officer as being “black”?

    Does Officer Edwards’s GPS match the victims stories as well? Was a teenager’s DNA found on Edward’s pants? Did Edwards turn off his computer when pulling over people, or friend them on social media?

    Why do Holtzclaw supporters believe the women when it comes to Officer Edwards, but think they are lying when it comes to Holtzclaw?

    THAT is what Tariq is talking about.


  2. Excellent piece. It is so important to stop this climate of race baiting. I love your point of doing the research yourself. Very important. It’s easy to fall prey to what’s being said and not do the digging yourself.
