I was having a conversation with a person at my job today. Now her manager told me she was trying to contact me...but I didn't know why...later I found out, but that's another issue.

Her manager told me she was "Iranian" so I may not understand what she is saying but to "take my time with her". I said "OK". She came to my office and wanted to discuss web infrastructure, which is one of the things I do to make my way in this world.

This lady asked me if I was African American. I thought that was a strange question in the middle of a conversation about web infrastructure security...switches and routers...and such. Well I responded by telling her "I'm trying to become one". She looked at me in an odd sort of way. She then responded by saying she was "Middle Eastern".

What?...I thought. I asked her "How can you be in the middle of a direction?

This is the reason you have to stick with the three categories of people that are the result of white supremacy (racism)...white people...non-white people...white supremacists (racists).

Everyone on this planet has a color classification. When you get away from color all you have left is deeds. That's when I start asking what does an "Iranian" person do that nobody else does? People, because of the words we use, will get other people off track...way off track...by using words that do not reveal truth.

Now how can someone "prove" they are from the middle of a direction? Every time the person attempts to point to where they are from...wherever they point to is north of somewhere else, south of somewhere else, west of somewhere else, and east of somewhere else.

Logically speaking no one can "prove" they are in the middle of a direction right now...let alone they come from one. If you go with that pretty soon you will become confused about what you are talking about.

Follow THE LOGIC.

V_GOD,

This also brings up the questions:

Middle East? East of What? Who is doing the geography, the mapping?
What is the left, near, right, or far east?

I find that answering those questions will bring one closer to understanding who is doing all of the classifying and eventually discover why.

Yes...I concur.

"Jihad" is a word getting heavy rotation in contemporary media.

The attached link is for an article which attempts to define the word by explaining what the words means to people who speak the Arabic language.

In addition, her comments explain how words function as tools to get things done, by the effect they have on a persons thinking..

I heard an interview with a U.S marine captain in Iraq where he explained how and why he had to prevent his soldiers from calling the people resisting the invasion of Iraq, "Feyhadeen".

In the Arabic language the term means "spiritual struggle".

The marine captain was smart enough to know the effect that word had on the thinking of Iraqis and how that thinking affected their actions.

He used the compensatory technique of replacing the word "Feyhadeen" with a word that meant criminal.

The link is an example of the same technique being used with the word Jihad

That's interesting. At some point the non-white people are going to have to master words instead of having words master us. Give the word a definition that is designed to reveal truth in a manner that justice and correctness is promoted. The white people who practice white supremacy (racism) are going to give all words definitions that work for injustice...this is a given under this SYSTEM of mistreatment they run. This is one of the ways they maintain their SYSTEM of mistreatment. The non-white people of the universe have to give words definitions that work for justice...words that work toward guaranteeing no person is mistreated and also guaranteeing the person that needs help the most get the most help.

There is no better counter move.

That's quite a interesting philosophy you adhere to. As for the "Iranian" I would like to say as an African/American woman that all of those as they referred to themselves as "middle easterners' are just another 'devil' we must face and defeat.

Their customs are antiquated, primitive, barbaric, savagery. They are as much an enemy to African/Americans as the whites. They are simply put, a "New devil" who has the same ill-will towards blacks as does their white supremacist rival. What's worse, these beings are murderous without a cause, just plain savage in their outlook and simply hiding behind alleged 'religious principles' to justify their savage, bloodthirst against all, including and specifically women who they have no respect for at all.

These primitives now set up in the U.S. to as one report put it, 'kill 4 million Americans' mean to kill 'black' as well as white and anybody else. Such barbaric mentality makes them the enemy to the black. Now mind you, I am not discussing this to denigrate any religion as we all know there are blacks who adhere to the Koran. I don't denounce civilized blacks such as NOI at least the righteous within their groups who practice their religious civily. Meaning, not forcing their views on others.

Rather, I'm speaking of these inane, psychotic, so called 'middle easterners' and for that matter some africans who believe 'all' who do not think like them is the 'infidel' worthy of death.

Bottom line, these beings are as unjust, racist, psychotic, savage as the white racists. NO FRIEND OF THE BLACK!

What do you mean when you say "devil"?
