How do black leftist get ahead? They profit from racism.
Racism has become the best method of success in a country where slavery was abolished in 1865 and the 1965 Civil Rights Act eradicated segregation against black Americans once and for all.
It’s too bad that idea sticks like hard peanut butter in the throats of leftist progressives, both white and black, who have always wanted blacks to remain in slavery and deny them their constitutional rights as free individuals.
Case in point: Hip hop Def Jam founder Russell Simmons, who produced one of the most offensive videos about one of America’s greatest women: Harriet Tubman, the woman accurately known as “Moses,” because she led her people out of bondage. And despite Russell Simmons latest race hustle, Tubman accomplished her heroism without prostituting herself!

That’s right; the video is “The Harriet Tubman Sex Tape.” Think Hollywood actresses filming their sexcapades and then releasing the footage to the public.
In Simmons’ video, Harriet Tubman entices her “Massa” into bed to have sex with her. Unbeknownst to the master, someone is hiding in the closet filming the encounter for Harriet to use as blackmail.

After Tubman has sex with the “Massa,” she lets him know she filmed the encounter and she “has leverage” to use against him by telling everyone “about his negro loving ways.”
According to Simmons, his portrayal of Harriet Tubman “outwitting the master, I thought it was politically correct.”
One must ask how Simmons would even consider such a portrayal of Miss Tubman as “politically correct” when female slaves were often raped and beaten.
The NAACP doesn’t find this PC humorous. Simmons was forced to pull the video and publicly apologize.
Simmons is shocked by the NAACP’s reaction. Russell Simmons always gets away with race-baiting. This time the hip hop billionaire went too far in the eyes of the NAACP.
It’s too bad the NAACP wasn’t that outraged over disc jockeys Opie and Anthony who let a guest talk about wanting to rape Condoleezza Rice.
But it shouldn’t come as a shock that Simmons doesn’t see anything wrong in demeaning an American woman who risked her life to free black Americans from slavery. Simmons, who produces hip hop music overflowing with filthy language that glorifies black-on-black gang violence, raping women, and killing cops, all of which Simmons defends, is also known for progressive, racial, controversial statements.
In the real world of slavery, Miss Tubman toiled in bondage. She was not enticing the “Massa” to sleep with her for favors.
The real Harriet Tubman “served with distinction as a soldier, spy, and a nurse, spending time at Fort Monroe, where Jefferson Davis was later imprisoned.”
Miss Tubman “led roughly 70 slaves to freedom using the Underground Railroad and later went on to become a humanitarian and women’s suffragist.”
Furthermore, Harriet Tubman helped paved the way for all American women of all color and race.
When apologizing, Simmons justified the video:
My first impression of the Harriet Tubman piece was that it was about what one of the actors said in the video, that 162 years later, there’s still tremendous injustice.
“162 years later,” America does not have slavery, and segregation is non-existent. In fact Mr. Simmons, America has a black president in the Oval Office, elected by a majority of white Americans!
Look around Mr. Simmons, America has had black Americans in political office for decades, as well as prominent black businesspeople and celebrities.
Let’s get something else straight: Those actors in that video have no idea what Miss Tubman, or any slave went through. American slaves were not hanging around fields making fun of their lives, they were toiling under a whip!
Early Black Americans were not living the life of Russell Simmons and Oprah Winfrey (who screams if store clerks don’t prostrate to the pampered billionaire). Slaves suffered more than any American today—including Simmons— can possibly comprehend.
Freed slaves walked from state-to-state to be reunited with their lost families, and they took whatever work they could to earn a living. Unlike leftist progressives like Simmons, who wants to keep slavery alive in order to guilt white Americans into a life of atonement, freed slaves wanted to leave slavery behind, in the past.
As esteemed economist and author Thomas Sowell says:
[I]f you have ever enslaved anybody, an apology is not going to cut it. And if you never enslaved anybody, then what are you apologizing for? The very idea of apologizing for what somebody else did is meaningless, however fashionable it has become.
That’s problem with professional race hustlers like Simmons: Slavery and racism is not only fashionable, but enormously profitable.
Simmons makes money off black-on-black crime by glorifying it in music and videos, as well as fashion. And it is black Americans who are used for profit by progressive blacks—Simmons, Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan, Oprah, Obama—in order to create racial tension and animosity toward whites.
This fabricated-for-money tension, as Thomas Sowell notes, is tearing America apart:
[I]f we start operating on the principle that people alive today are responsible for what their ancestors did in centuries past, we will be adopting a principle that can tear any society apart, especially a multi-ethnic society like the United States. Even if we were willing to go down that dangerous road
Progressive pimps like Simmons are taking black America down that road, back to the past where progressives want black American’s lives postponed, while wealthy leftists like Simmons stay ahead using black Americans for profit.
Of course Simmons, who produces violent videos, says he “does not condone violence against women in any form.” That explains those lovingly abusive hip videos about raping women.
I’m sure Harriet Tubman were alive today she would be Simmons’ biggest fan!
Despite not “condoning violence against women,” Simmons must have thought the video was humorous or he never would have lampooned a woman, whose life before escaping slavery, was brutality, not enticing slave masters.
Heaven forbid Simmons use his money to produce authentic, historical movies about Harriet Tubman, who gave many hope, and continues to be an inspiration to women of all races and colors. Instead, Simmons spends his money to degrade Miss Tubman’s life prior to her successful efforts as an abolitionist.
Perhaps someone ought to lampoon Russell Simmons at a rodeo. Oh wait, making fun of progressive black Americans is racist, trashing Allen West and Condoleezza Rice as Uncle Toms and Aunt Jemima is putting black conservatives in their rightful place—the plantation.
