Kola Boof vs Amiri Baracka


There was a bit of excitement on the black activist set at the Harlem Book fair on Saturday...


Kola Booth, writer, feminist and one time concubine of Osama bin Ladin, slapped fire out of activist, writer, poet Amiri Baracka.

Apparently there was a mix up with the start time Kola was given to panel her novel, 'The Sexy Part of the Bible'.

Kola was told her start time was at 3:30 but book fair flyers said she wasn't scheduled untill 4:30. After being told of the mix up outspoken Kola took the stage at 3:30 anyway and all hell broke loose.

According to Kola's Twitter time line 78 year old Amiri Baracka began to heckle her and called her a bitch seven times, so she slapped him.

Police were called but Amiri declined to press charges.

As respected as he is, he called her a bitch? Yet he's one of those cats that would be the first to talk about what a white man says about Black women. I hate fake black intellectuals.

amiri baracka is a poet and writer. kola boof is a feminist writer. at one point she was screwing osama bin laden and she tried to tell the u.s. gov't where he was hiding out but they ignored her. she wrote an article a while ago about how everyone ignored her and did not believe her because she was a black woman. i'll see if i can find it.

Illiteracy in the black community is rampant! Most black men can name their favorite team line up and tell you what school they attended before they go pro but cannot tell you who their congressman and/or senator is and I am sure don’t have an idea of how the politician that represents them votes! People are stupid not to pay attention to the things that really affect their life but all of this other nonsense has precedence?

Malika said...

here is an article about her. http://necolebitchie.com/2011/05/16/osama-bin-ladens-mistress-kola-boof-speaks-out/

baracka wrote a book a while back about hiphop and i expected to like it, but it's like it was written to explain to uppity white people what hiphop is about. he sounded so far removed that i didn't even bother to finish the book. smh

I expected so much better from intelligent black peoplle but this is what happens when you put people on pedestals.

whenever i see "black activist" i automatically think "white woman", in the sense of "i bet he's got a white woman at home!"

She took the stage at her AGREED time and looks like she did the right thing cause this rude axx inaccurate axx nicca bish tried to use the situation as an excuse to dog her! That shot to the head was deserved and his sorry butt knew it! Trying to be slick and dog a chick on the low azz muthafuka! Bet he won't try that shyt with her no mo! Women take heed! Fcuk trying to appease a disrespectful azz nukka!!! Knowing they were wrong she stood up for herself and they should have accommodated her as gentlemen! I bet if that was one of their YT bitches asserting herself they wouldn't have acted like this! COONS!! I swear, black people stay clueless and #losing!!!

I agree. Alot of times when black male activits say BLACK POWER they often mean BLACK MALE POWER.

You can't just be coldcockin' an OG like that.

Then again, you can't just be calling a Black woman out their name like that, either.
Multiple times at that.

Not surprisingly, a laying of hands was the end result. Call it a draw and retreat to y'all separate corners.

Case Closed!

Sidenote:
A little disappointed at Mr. Baracka's lack of restraint.

Quick Run down for all those unfamiliar with these people.

THere was no mix up on Kola Boofs book session time.

Kola Boof talks bad about black men and self hate issues.

Therefore black men who had control over certain venues would get Kola Boof's autograph and book reading sessions cancelled at different venues.


Kola Boof said she did NOT WILLFULLY go with Osama Bin Laden and that she basically was raped by him.She said she participated in survival sex with Osama by pretending to be a willing girlfriend instead of the rape victim she was so he would not kill her.

Amiri Baracka had children by a white woman whom he left behind in the sixties to marry a black woman due to his new found "black pride" at the time.Apparently he neglected the two children from the white woman and had 6 children by his black wife and became a poet and activist.He used to be called an anti white racist due to being involved in "black nationalism" and saying some anti white things.Eventually he took back all the anti white things he said and decided to become a socialist.

Amiri Baracka like many other black men don't like Kola Boof because she calls black men "self hating niggerstock" because they pursue non black women and seemingly hate black women according to Kola.

Amiri Bracka and black men forget that Kola Boof ALSO calls black WOMEN "self hating niggerstock" for supporting anti-black black men such as rappers Wale,Lil Wayne,and most black male entertainers.

Kola overall seemingly hates the self hatred that is so ingrained in black people and she frequently curses black and bi-racial people out on their self hate and what she says is the ERASURE of fully black unmixed looking women in American media.She blames blacks in general,including women, for being colorstruck and anti-black and believes that is black people had self love they would live united and better.

She says we need to create self loving new sons and daughters.

As far as Kola Boof and the Amiri situation,Kola claims that Amiri himself was apart of the crew of black men who had her schedule pushed back.She claims that black men are always disrespecting and picking on her and black women.He called her a bitch so she slapped him.

NaijaBelle said...

@10:17 thanks for breaking it down for us. Kola needs to take it easy...it's really not that serious. I can't imagine going through life and being that angry. By all means, champion a cause but not at the expense of being seen as bitter and psychotic.

I have to agree with this. Koola seems to be telling a truth that black people, males in particular, can't handle.

Black entertainer today do fuel colorism. Its a shame that we don't seem to defend or be attracted to our own anymore. If your not light bright and almost white you can't get a singing contract, movie role, or any job in entertainment. This is a shame. For the record, I love my Black people and see more beauty in darker melaninated black people than lighter ones.

Ok, I been on a website where Kola Boof posted at ALL time but now she just sticks to twitter a lot. Let me tell yall about this crazy ass bitch.

IF YOU ARE NOT AS BLACK AS TAR (WOMAN), SHE HATES YOU. Period. She claims to be half egyptian/sudanese (although her mother is Somali, she claims) and that she use to do arab movies.

There are soooo many holes in her taudry tales about Bin Laden me and a slew of other folks....yall she even got into it with NOIRE (the writer of the Candy Licker and G Spot) because Noire busted her in a lie that Kola told about working with her. SHe went OFF on Noire. She has went off on me on SEVERAL occassions, calling me a cracker, creeHOE, slut wench all because I call her out on her bullshit of sleeping with WHITE men....yet she gets pissed off if a black man looks at a white girl. She is full of shit and I DOUBT this man just called her a bitch for NO REASON. KOLA is a MESS. A hot ghetto, long faced mess.

Anonymous said...

Kola would go off on a crazy diatribe to anyone not agreeing with her. She and I use to get into it DAILY back in the day. She lies uncontrollably. Now as far as her poetry and writing, I have never been impresed. Very basic. and she would always tell folks to google her or send these links to these unreputable websites that no one has EVER HEARD OFF...like some shit someone made for free (like those old school geosites webpages) for proof of her fuckery. She is insane.

ELove said...

Well I HAPPEN to LUV Kola because She's BEEN THROUGH a tremendous amount of PAIN & SUFFERING yet her Mind and Spirit are actually STRONGER FOR IT... And she does go in on Females just as HARD as she does THE MALES (WORD!!!)

Hopefully she SLAPPED SOME SENSE in that Old Fool's Head... I'm from the School of "If SOMEONE disrespects YOU then DISRESPECT Them Back EVEN HARDER"

Her Twitter Rants are EPIC In NATURE and She GOES IN HARD to the BONE... She goes to the CORE OF THE ISSUE and EXPOSES IT for everybody to see and the People that usually get offended (ALL Types & Kinds...) are the ONES that Can't Quite HANDLE THE TRUTH !!!

Anonymous said...

oh and for the record, I am black..but I am lightskinned. To Kola...I was not black but a niggerstock, cree'hoe mulla mutt wench. lol. Damn we use to get that site off and poppin.

And @ the one who broke it down...I think it's 10:17...hmmm...maybe you been on the same site? ;0) YOu are DEAD ON. She always claimed everyone was colorstruck or selfhating when in reality she was talking about herself. She'd make up other characters and post as them either to pump her up or tear her down just to get shine. NUTTY as a snickers bar!

Anonymous said...

@ ELOVE: Yeah, I can see you loving Kola's crsty ass. I'm sorry but that bitch is crazy as hell. I know she CLAIMS she been thru a lot but this heffa's story changes so much, it's ridiculous. YOU KNOW THIS. come on now.

The light skinned and all things Eurocentric worship has been going on for soo long that people have gotten comfortable with it. Just because this mentality is now the standard does not make it right. Darker skinned people need to find their self esteem and self worth. Light skinned people need to stop enabling a system that alienates their darker brothers and sisters just because it benefits them. Kola Boof often speaks the TRUTH, but like most truths it disrupts the comfortable norm and people don't want to hear it, because it benefits them.

@12:45pm " you ashy knuckled funky breath baboon"

This is what I’m talking about. This woman could be a black woman lighter than you, but you assume because she said something against biracial kids she must be jealous of you??! You then go on to say racially insensitive comments about her by calling her an ashy baboon. This is what Koola speaks about. As black people we should be united. Why would you call another black person a monkey?

Anonymous said...

Mixed people never know what side they on. One minute you black and want to fight someone for calling you mixed....Next thing you white and calling black people racial slurs like you better than them. Its cool though. I blame your black daddy. Its no secret most black men get with white woman b/c of their self hate issues. Thats why yall grow up soo confused. This is also why I don't trust mixed people nor do I consider you black and apart of the black community.

Why would she snitched on Osama? He wouldn't give her half of his cave?

I applaud and appreciate the truth that Kola Boof has the courage to say without fear. I DISAGREE with her choice of words and approach i.e. "Black men are useless", "niggerstock", etc., but NOT one word that she says is untrue and understand that she's using her anger about the state that Black people are in when she addresses people so it makes her sound like a total nutjob.
The only people that get upset about her message are: 1)Black men that dislike Black women anyway and are full of self-hatred (consciously or subconsciously) so much so that they don't even want to have Black children and 2) Black women that think that being mixed and farther away from being African is a special gift of superiority from God because they believe the bullsh*t that this Eurocentric society has constantly fed to us for centuries.

My ONLY problem with Kola slapping Amiri is that he is a 70 year old. Other than that, he should've been dealt with, but by the other Black MEN present like it used to be back in the day when Black men still respected and protected Black women on a larger scale in our communities and vice versa.

This current widening division between the Black man and Black woman today is going to have some seriously devastating effects for us for generations to come. Look at what it's doing now. Ugly. I, for one, appreciate someone who recognizes it and at least makes an attempt to do something about it, whether their strategy is flawed or not. It's better than happily helping the division grow. Go Kola!!

I sure do applaud her. Osama was a "terrorist" that was hired and trained by THE biggest domestic and international terrorists in world history. I'm sorry that you don't have a clue about who THEY might be because you rely on CNN, MSNBC, Fox, or TMZ for "news".

Seeing as how American/European culture and point of views are as far as your closed mind chooses to embrace, I don't expect you to understand the difference between the forced sexual enslavement of women versus seeking to date and voluntarily have sex with a "terrorist".

Mona, take a seat. The first thing African women do when they get over here is get some hair. Hell, wasn't it reported that African women were bleaching their skin to be lighter? Yes, it was. On the world stage NO ONE wants Africans in their country. The women are viewed as prostitutes and the men as swindlers. I am happy that you have pride in your people. You should, but don't get it twisted. If a ship were sinking and there was only one seat left on a lifeboat filled with white people and they had to choose between an African or an African American, you can best believe they would choose us. REAL.

Lastly, Kola Boof is a fraud.

I know Kola and she doesn't hate me for not being a light-skinned woman. We actually get along great. She is very sweet and very smart and she's better than me because I would've slapped him after the second time.

I can't take Kola that seriously when it comes to colorism. First off, she herself is biracial (I think her father is/was Arab). Also, she's got issues with black people who are lighter than she is. Still, that's uncool of Baraka to call her out of any name, let alone a bitch. Enough brothers do that now. Someone of his statue should not have added fuel to the fire.

I'm rather tired of the light or dark issue. I'll tell you "light skin privilege" is very very thin and most white people see us as "black" regardless of our tone. All of this stuff we put on each other is nonsense.

I am soooo tired of lightskinned people saying "whites don't see color,they just see black" bullsh!t. That is a LIE. When have you seen a lightskinned brother shot and killed by the police?

Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo, Oscar Grant, Raymond Herisse, Kerry Baxter, Danroy Henry are ALL DARK skinned males and the list goes on. Hell, you can include Rodney King. White people do see color. Now, if a white person has to chose between their own and a light skinned black person they will pick their own in a heartbeat, but if the choice is between a dark black person and a light skinned black person he will with the quickness pick the lightskinned person.

2006 study found dark-skinned Black men who murdered White men were more likely to get the death penalty than light-skinned Blacks found guilty of the same crime.

In 2007 study researched in part by Duke University Professor William Darity estimates that light-skinned men, on average, earn about $3 more per hour than dark-skinned men.

In 2006, the University of Georgia found that, all other things being equal, light-skinned people were more likely to get hired for jobs over dark-skinned people. It was worse for the men.

"Dark-skinned men with greater credentials were significantly less preferred than a light-skinned man with lower credentials," says Ph.D. candidate Matthew Harrison, whose test asked 250 of his peers to hire the best candidate using nearly identical resumes and a photo featuring the same person color-adjusted for light and dark skin tone. Most of the study participants were White.


Adds Harrison: "The economic gap between light-skinned and darker-skinned Blacks is similar to the gap between Whites and Blacks."

The findings in this study are, tragically, not too surprising, said Matthew Harrison, a doctoral student at the University of Georgia. We found that a light-skinned black male can have only a bachelor's degree and typical work experience and still be preferred over a dark-skinned black male with an MBA and past managerial positions, simply because expectations of the light-skinned black male are much higher, and he doesn't appear as menacing as the darker-skinned male applicant.

a doll test duplicated in Harlem, N.Y., last year, more than a half-century after Brown. To the chagrin of parents and psychologists across the nation, the results were unchanged.

The children are from a Harlem Day Care Center. And 15 of the 21 children surveyed preferred the White doll over the Black one.

Mr. Clark and his wife Mamie Phipps Clark, also a psychologist, conducted the doll study in 1950 that showed how racial segregation destroyed the self-esteem of Black children. The Clarendon County, S.C. experiment involved 16 Black children, ages 6 to 9. They asked the children their perception of a White doll and a Black doll. Eleven of the students said the Black doll looked “bad” and nine said the White doll looked “nice.”
