Parable of the Rabbit by Marvin X

Parable of the Rabbit

Parable of the Rabbit
There was a rabbit that laid chicken eggs. People were so impressed with this rabbit they went hunting for rabbit eggs. The eggs were of different colors, beautiful red, green, yellow, purple and blue colored eggs. What a magical rabbit this was.

Somehow the people made a strange connection between this rabbit and a man who was crucified, resurrected and ascended to heaven. According to this fantastic story, the man arose from inside a cave with a big rock at the entrance. He managed to remove the rock and was seen walking around in a garden. Maybe he was on an egg hunt too.

It was reported some women were in the garden hunting for the colored rabbit eggs when they saw the man hunting too, searching under bushes and in the grass, behind trees. They said he said he was hungry since he didn't get a chance to finish his last supper because a snitch reported to homeland security that he was a terrorist, had made terrorist remarks at the supper about what was going to happen to the king and his magicians called preachers, teachers and politicians, also known as Ten Percenters.

He called them liars and the father of lies, also said they were murderers and the truth was not in them. He said if God were their father they would love him but they sought to kill him because he told them the truth. So he was arrested and lynched on a tree, but he survived.

He told the women he didn't know why they did this to him since he was only trying to tell the truth because his father had told him the truth would set people free. His father told him he was divine and other people were too. We and our father are one, he told the women. They nodded in agreement and walked with him around the garden as he looked for more rabbit eggs to eat.

The women kissed him on the cheek, hand and feet and offered him a little wine they had brought in their basket for the egg hunt. He drank the wine, then told the women he had to depart for the upper room in his father's house. He promised they could come visit him one day. After he departed, the women continued hunting for the rabbit eggs and drinking their wine.

The Black Scholar and Revisionist Black History on Resurrection Sunday


I still forgot to give you your glasses, I was trying to explain so much as usual, as I find it’s easy for people to be misguided for lack of facts they don’t have. E.g. Brother Editor didn’t come to The Black Scholar as a poet; I don’t think he’d ever published a poem so much as in a student newspaper at that point. But even if he had been Baraka,  he didn’t use poetry to build The Black Scholar. He might have helped to build a poet or two in time, through The Black Scholar, but their poetry did not build The Black Scholar. The Black Scholar hit the ground running with the first issue, with essentially all of the articles obtained by me. They didn’t  know him and there was not yet The Black Scholar to know. As I said this morning, Julia got it in Newsweek through friends she had met in her job as Director of Education for the soon-to-be-opened Oakland Museum.  He didn’t build The Black Scholar, The Black Scholar made him, if we can say he ever was fully made, i.e., a made man, he is certainly not a self-made man, but a man who came to The Black Scholar on the make, with nothing beyond  the tools of an unknown English teacher.

I’ll hang on to the glasses. By the way, I didn’t mean for you guys to gut my brown supply chest next to the white file cabinet. I guess its contents were so scarce and rumpled you thought it was something rare.

The article below begins with the lie that Robert Chrisman, RIP,founded Black Scholar, when in fact Dr. Nathan Hare was the founder. 

Dr. Hare on the Black Scholar


One other thing, on the issue of whether the journal was black if all of its support or money wasn’t -- and I said that would be determined by its content (by which I was including its ideology) – I should exlain that it is true that Bob was black (or half-black, in that his father was white – doesn’t matter that both of his wives were white, as Julia complained to the New York Times, to Charlayne Hunter, whose husband, unknown to Julia, was also white!—so he was half black but he was not black black. 

Indeed, the white guy, Allen Ross, and I got along well and even saw eye to eye on most things. It was Bob Chrisman that both of us had problems with, indeed as I said this morning, Al quit before I did and frequently asked me to work with him with The Black Scholar Book Club, before the died. It was Julia’s idea to call Al’s widow, who came to our apartment with her and Al’s daughter and the three of them urged me to leave The Black Scholar, over my protests that I didn’t have time, that I had to finish  my dissertation for the psychology Ph.D. in order to graduate in August. They said if I got out now that would give me more time in time to finish my thesis . 

That wasn’t true, but I didn’t finish it on time. I’d already planned to leave The Black Scholar once I’d graduated, before Allen Ross left. But by the time I left, the three persons on the board were Marxists and we’d argue over whether some articles should be in the journal. That included black nationalist like Haki Madhubuti, though his article was published. And after I left there was even a forum to rebut it, but perhaps causing the uninitiated to think blackness was being highlighted if anything, and giving Haki some props to boot -- so it’s easy to be misled. Bob even balked at publishing maverick Marxists like Eldridge Cleaver when he was in Algiers and out of sorts with the Panthers and the movement and a black professor in Canada, who had a divergent view – momentarily forget his name, he wasn’t famous or anything, and we did publish him, but increasingly I was losing out, once Gloria started siding with the other two, I guess partly because I had pulled away to a considerable degree in the course of the psychology degree. 

So the Marxist thing was just one of the reasons I left. Plus they were Marxists but acting independent of other Marxists, so far as I know, with the other two basically conceding to Bob and his caucusing with them. So actually Bob took it over. He chose Robert Allen, with my consent, as I wasn’t expecting or even cut out for no screed. Neither Al nor I wanted to hurt The Black Scholar. It was suggested to me that I sue. I could have sued but with the shaky finances of the journal it could have crumbled. What I would have done if I’m doing it now was go with Al Ross with the Black Scholar Book Club as he had left with and implored me continuously to join him, and I also could have taken the lecture bureau, which was Bob idea trying to get part of my plenteous lecture fees at the time, but I was the one who knew how it worked and set it up. Indeed one thing I came up with, Classified Ads, Bob at first opposed. 

I told you how we turned the corner by refusing Signet’s first printing of 105,000 copies of “The Best of the Black Scholar” over the size of the author’s cut per book, and wound up getting a bigger cut per book on two books, with 4,000 and 3,000 copies printed of each before they went out of print. There we turned the corner at the door of the big-time into the upper echelons of mediocrity. People who would build a dune in the sand disdain skylifts.

Come to think of it I don’t know that Bob ever built anything else. If you don’t count the poem or two after he was at The Black Scholar and once took a leave of a month or so to work on some writing. He wasn’t missed but came back without the writing done, whatever it was. I mean the brother wrote an article in Scanlon’s, one of the few ever published anywhere, including in The Black Scholar, I remember one in the shortlved Scanlon’s called “Ecology is a Racist Shuck.” You don’t say. 

I almost simultaneously did an article for The Black Scholar called “Black Ecology,” which was translated into several languages around the world. Did he build that article. Indeed, I used to write little publisher’s statements and initial them. One day Al  told me Bob opposed me doing them, so I  stopped doing them, as I had other things to do. If you look at them you may see they set the tone. I interviewed people like Muhammad Ali (stayed a weekend in his home and did roadwork with him one morning when he was living outside Philadelphia to do the interview., and because I didn’t sign them when Robert Hauser wrote the biography of Ali he attributed it to  The Black Scholar and didn’t mention me. Queen Mother Moore was interviewed in my apartment (Bob didn’t know her) and I also paid my way to Detroit while I was on a speaking engagement somewhere and interviewed  Robert Williams shortly after he got back from China.


Dr. Hare teaches us the Fictive theory, i.e., everything the white man and black man says is fiction, a lie, until proven to be a fact. Dr. Hare's contribution to the Black Scholar has been erased from history by revisionists and their sycophants. Thank Allah we have his archives to put the record straight. Be careful, next these muddle headed intellectuals will tell you Malcolm X founded the Nation of Islam.--Marvin X

From Vol. 39, No. 3-4 (Fall/Winter 2009.)

Vol. 38, No. 1: The Candidacy of Barack Obama

Guest Editor: Dr. Charles P. Henry, Professor, University of California, Berkeley

Preface to the Spring 2008 issue:

The campaign of Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States provides a rare crystallization of U.S. historical, political, and social movement. Issues of racism, gender, generation, and national identity are reticulated through the prism of Obama's candidacy. We have dedicated a special issue of The Black Scholar to this subject. Dr. Charles P. Henry, Professor and Chair of the Department of Black Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, and a leading black political scientist, has served as Guest Editor and assembled major scholars for this effort.

As Charles Henry points out in his article, "Obama '08 -- Articulate and Clean," Obama's march to the Presidency has been on a road cleared by purposeful black political activity and leadership in modern times, commencing with the Voter Rights Act of 1965, the 1972 presidential candidacy of Cong. Shirley Chisholm and the l984 and 1988 campaigns of Reverend Jesse Jackson.

Ronald Walters seizes precisely upon the timing of Obama and the historical moment in his essay, "Obama's Edge: Understanding Nation Time," as the black candidacy moved from a flank movement into central command of U.S. consciousness in 2008. Walters notes the juxtaposition of Obamas' new vision with the degradation of the U.S. population, resources, and morale by George W. Bush's presidency. With the phrase, "our time has come," Obama tapped into the conscious and unconscious political will of alienated Americans.

The international aspects of Barack Obama's candidacy are treated in Clarence Lusane's "We Must Lead the World: The Obama Doctrine and the Re-branding of U.S. Hegemony," which assesses both the status quo postures of Obama foreign policy, as well as the prospects for change that his transparency and legacy of Black political vision offer.

Central to this candidacy has been the competition with Senator Hillary Clinton, herself an historical first. A leading feminist, Alice Walker's "Lest We Forget: an Open Letter to My Sisters," traces her own personal history anti finds in it the rational for black political movement and supporting Obama's candidacy,

We consider methodology as Diane Pinderhughes explores the complex intersection of gender, race, and class interest in "Intersectionality: Race and Gender in the 2008 Presidential Nomination Campaign." Ronald Williams' II article, "Barack Obama and the Complicated Boundaries of Blackness" offers a review of the literature. Williams explores the ambiguities of African American identities, with emphasis upon conditions and characteristics of indigenous and non-indigenous African Americans.

We are also pleased to publish a major text by Barack Obama, his address delivered in Philadelphia on March 18, 2008, "To Form a More Perfect Union," a forthright discussion of racism and its effects, as it impedes the full realization of American democracy. Obama reaffirms his belief in "the more perfect union of the Constitution," a belief which comes from my unyielding faith in the decency and generosity of the American people. ... (and which) also comes from my own American story." We hope you enjoy this issue. As always, feel free to send us a letter with your reactions.

Silencia Por Favor

It is only when we reach this age
we come to see we know nothing
knowing is beginning
yet it is The End
and so we begin and end with ignorance
it is the only thing we can claim for sure
ignorance and illusion
we are sure about this
after all the women, wine, dope, money
momentary passions in the night
early morn
things unsatisfied
things eternally oppositional
The moment can transcend the moment into the eternal
and if we don't get there so what
let's have ease after difficulty
no oppositional personality
silencia por favor.
no words can cover all the years tears fears
silencia por favor.
--El Muhajir (Marvin X)

is a groundbreaking collection, capturing the best new work from the poets who have brought fresh energy, life, and relevance to American poetry.

“Here is a democratic orchestration of voices and visions, poets of all ages, ethnicities, and geographic locations coming together to create a dialogue and to jam–not slam. This is our mouth on paper, our hearts on our sleeves, our refusal to shut up and swallow our silence. These poems are tough, honest, astute, perceptive, lyrical, blunt, sad, funny, heartbreaking, and true. They shout, they curse, they whisper, and sing. But most of all, they tell it like it is.”

Black California

Book Description

March 1, 2011
150 years of the California African American experienceBlack California is the first comprehensive anthology celebrating black writing through almost two centuries of Californian history. In a patchwork quilt pieced from poetry, fiction, essays, drama, and memoirs, this anthology traces the trajectory of African American writers. Each piece gives a voice to the resonating rhythms that created the African American literary tradition in California. These voices speak of dreams and disasters, of heroic achievements and tragic failures, of freedom and betrayal, of racial discrimination and subsequent restoration all setting the pulse of the black California experience.
Early works include a letter written by Pao Pico, the last Mexican governor of California; an excerpt from mountain man, freed slave, and honorary Crow Indian James Beckwourth; and a poem written by James Madison Bell and recited to a public gathering of black people commemorating the death of President Lincoln. More recent contributions include pieces from beat poets Ted Joans and Bob Kaufman, Black Panther Eldridge Cleaver, Black Arts Movement poet Marvin X, comedian Brian Copeland, and feminists Lucille Clifton and June Jordan.
