Uncle Ruckus’ Revenge: Why Does Faizon Love Hate Black People So Much?
I consider myself one of many people who looks forward to the day when our folks are finally economically and emotionally liberated from White supremacy. However, I also consider myself one of those folks who wonder if that day will ever come.
You can ask anyone in the community and they will likely tell you that our biggest barrier to liberation is unity. We may all love each other, but we don’t always trust each other. Therefore, we don’t stick together. I think this is partially correct. In addition to our overall repulsion to sticking together, I also believe that there are some brown-skinned folks among us who really just hate Black people.
Call it being brainwashed by White supremacy or a byproduct of having way too much sugar in the diet, but we can’t deny that there are some folks with our same skin color walking amongst us who hate anything Black, even their own reflections. And I don’t mean those folks who are just ignorant. Often, we tend to mischaracterize and lump those who don’t have access to certain knowledge and information in with those who truly hate Black people. But I’m talking about those folks who even after being informed on an issue, still continue with their anti-Black posturing.
I’m talking about Black people-hating folks like Faizon Love, who is mostly known to the Black masses as Big Worm from the Black cinematic classic, Friday.
If you haven’t heard by now, Bill Cosby is guilty as sin. He admitted as much in the recently released court documents from a sexual assault civil suit filed against Cosby back in 2005. In those papers, the comedian told the court that he gave women prescription-grade Quaaludes for the purpose of having sex with them. Cosby’s guilt and innocence should be a closed debate now. But Big Worm isn’t ready to let it go. Instead, he decided to have a meltdown on Twitter.
You can read it for yourselves here. But basically, Worm is doubling down on the previous support he offered Cosby via Twitter. He has also decided to be more direct in his message to Cosby critics, tweeting out, “I’m gonna say it because Mr.Cosby can’t… Fuck them bitches and they mamas to!!! And the house nigga Hanibal Burress too.”
This time around, his rant was a lot more terse. It started out calm and slightly inconspicuous enough:
“You people kill me with this shit! This withe boy walks into a church and kills 9 people you not mad at that, but this upsets you FUCK YALL.”
But then he took it up a notch by adding:
“UNFORTUNATLY THE PROBLEM WITH NIGGAS… IS NIGGAS ….WHAT EVERY THESE CRACKERS GOT PLANED FOR YOU, YOU DESERVE!!! SPINELESS MONKEYS.”
His Twitter rant took an even stranger turn when Worm started tweeting out provocative pictures. The images included a lynched Black man hanging from a tree; Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. pointing at a window broken by a bullet hole; Sean Bell; George Zimmerman; and another picture of Dr. King, this time being assaulted by two white men.
If the pictures weren’t offensive enough, Big Worm tweeted out these threatening messages:
“I hope that White boy get off and him and George Zimmerman got to the B.E.T AWARDS together.. Sponsored By BURGER KING.”
“YOU MONKEY NIGGAS LOVE YOUR MASTER AND REPEAT EVERYTHING OUT HIS MOUTH….SO PLEASE KEEP IT UP!!!! #NEWSLAVES.”
“IM DONE TALKING TO YOU SPINELESS MOKEYS… YOU NEED TO LERN FROM THE LATIN COMMUNITY BECAUSE THAT IS TRUE LOVE OF PEOPLE”
He also tweeted out a picture of accused rapist and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger with the caption, “It’s not rape, if you win the Superbowl.”
The thing is, rape is always rape. Whether the person is prosecuted for it or not. Yet Big Worm is still mad and the question is why? And exactly at what and whom?
There is a lot of hate and anger happening within those tweets. He kind of reminds me of one of those Westboro Baptist Church members who protest the Bible’s supposed commandment against same-sex marriage in the most ungodly ways possible. Some may argue that Big Worm is very passionate about the frustrations and disappointment we all have felt from time to time over the lack of unity in our communities. But when you are hurling racist insults at us and wishing us pain and destruction at the hands of White supremacy, I think it is pretty clear you don’t love the community as much as you think you do. And that you may not love the community at all.
