Killer Bees

17 04 2008

During a pissing contest with a cousin over Wu-Tang trivia recently, I happened across a Wikipedia article on Killer Bees in a Google search. Are you ready to get mad? Check this shit out:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Africanized_bee

If you’re an idiot like me and didn’t know that ‘killer bee’ is a colloquialism for ‘Africanized bee’, then the first thing you did was stare at your screen for five minutes in utter disbelief that the entomologist community would allow the terms ‘Killer’ and ‘Africanized’ to be used interchangeably.

After peeling your eyes away from the first sentence of the article, those same eyes were drawn to the image on the right side of the screen and, more importantly, the caption under that image. I’m sorry, but there’s no way that whoever wrote that caption didn’t do so with the intention of throwing out some thinly veiled tongue-in-cheek racism:

Figure 1: WHAT?!?!?!?!

Upon reading the caption, I could be heard in my condo screaming “ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS?!?!?!” over and over again for at least ninety seconds. Leave it to a fucking ‘scientific’ article about insects to, within the first ten seconds, paint ‘African’ bees as ruthless killers and then show these ill-tempered nigga-bees gangbanging a blushing (hence the pink spot) ‘European Queen’ like some twisted apian Spring Thomas* video.

Are you ready to get even MORE mad?!?!?!? Let’s get to the part of the article where we learn that the term ‘Africanized bee’ isn’t really even justifiable:

The Africanized bee in the western hemisphere descended from 26 Tanzanian queen bees (A. m. scutellata) accidentally released by a replacement bee-keeper in 1957 near Rio Claro, São Paulo State in the southeast of Brazil from hives operated by biologist Warwick E. Kerr, who had interbred honey bees from Europe and southern Africa. Hives containing these particular queens were noted to be especially defensive…Unfortunately, following the accidental release, the African queens eventually mated with local drones, and their descendants have since spread throughout the Americas.

This sentence is structured in a way to make you presume that the aggressiveness of killer bees is the fault of the African bees. But if you look closely, you’ll notice the following:

  • There is no mention anywhere that purely African bees are unusually aggressive or defensive
  • The local drones that raped the Tanzanian queens were European, since honey bees and their drones were introduced to Brazil by white people in 1622
  • Unusual aggression in the bees only happens when European and African varieties mix

So in other words, it would be equally appropriate to call killer bees ‘Europeanized Bees’ or ‘Cracka Bees’ or ‘Maniacally Genocidal Rapers, Pillagers, and Enslavers of Land, Culture, and Humanity Bees’ – but no, racist motherfuckers back in the day decided to be assholes and call them ‘Africanized’. Ain’t that a bitch? The article even goes on to say:

The popular term ‘Africanized bee’ has only limited scientific meaning today because there is no generally accepted fraction of genetic contribution used to establish a cut-off. While the native African bees are smaller, and build smaller comb cells, than the European bee, their hybrids are not smaller. They do have slightly shorter wings, which can be reliably recognized only by performing a statistical analysis on micro-measurements of a substantial sample.

In other words, the Africanized bees don’t even fucking LOOK LIKE African bees – they look like European bees!

If this whole situation isn’t a comic foil for the history of black and white race relations in America, then I don’t know what the hell is. See if this story sounds familiar:

  1. Europeans trap African females and bring them to the New World
  2. The African females are forced to mate with European males
  3. The children born of these rapes are stigmatized and rejected by the Europeans
  4. To maintain the purity of the Europeans, they consider anyone with one drop of African blood to be African, no matter how white he looks
  5. The Afro-European hybrids are now disaffected and pissed off. They move to Los Angeles and go fucking nuts

Am I talking about people? Bees? Both?

Figure 2: Kindred Spirits

Racist motherfuckers.

nigga-bees…this is what we call our local Applebees…anyway

Good comparison, I learned this a few weeks ago..when Sam on Good Morning America was messing with bees (some biggest fear thing they all did)…He was like “Why in the world are they called Africanized if they aren’t really from Africa”…Even blond haired blue eyed Sam was confused.

I hate all bees.. i don’t give a shit where they’re from. I got stung by one of those motherfathers before, ran towards my house, tripped over some street rubble and broke my arm.. the same one that got stung. So on top of having to remove that stinger from my arm, i had to go to the hospital to have it casted.

I. Hate. Bees.

I vote for changing the names to Cracka bees. Loves it.

Holocaust of a cooter? I cannot breathe.

There is absolutely nothing left that White people can do in the field of Deviltry that can surprise me. If I was escorted out of my home by a White lynch mob tommorrow, I’d say “Well, it’s not as if they didn’t make it quite clear that they hated me.”

The only thing that surprises me about White people is their inability to realise that Black people hate them (RE: the Jeremiah Wright fiasco)/ that most of us are not patriotic and the fact that they like Barack Obama.

I say we get some Africanized bees and turn them into a killer army and unleash them on unsuspecting White folks, whilst playing a jimbe and bumping “Return To The 36 Chambers”.

The Wu-Tang wiki was the best thing I read in 2008 thusfar, btw.

Michael Moore equated the reaction and fear of these bees to race relations in Bowling for Columbine. It is effed up that anything “African”, even though these bees are not, is deemed dangerous.

I’m so disappointed with all of life right now i don’t even know what to say. I went to the link and read the Article before reading you’re post. I didn’t even catch that of course if the queen was African and they were cross breeding duh all the drones were European. But these motherahhhhhhhhhhhh!

I did notice that they listed tons of aggressive behaviors displayed by genetically mutated creatures (much like the folks of Texas chain saw massacre) and attributed it to their un measured African Ancestry. I’m so done with white people. Done with these unbelievably sick racist bastards! I feel like I did after watching roots in the 7th grade. (Snarling at random white people)

There is one gem to gain from this morning’s downer:

“Hives containing these particular queens were noted to be especially defensive…”

Particularly defensive maybe that’s because; African Queens have the sweetest honey! -I’m talking about people. Holla! 😀

“ill-tempered nigga-bees” is what did it for me. That’s about the funniest “description” i’ve ever read.
But seriously, Jay Anthony Brown has been making fun of this for years on the TJMS w/his skit about the “African Bee”. But I’m all for changing Wikpedia articles to get the truth out. I vote for “Europeanized Bees”.

Apparently, according to wikipedia, there is also an “Egyptian Bee” in the US which isn’t an “Africanized Bee”

Please exuse the ensuing rant, but, dude, im soooo sick of these double standards and racial profiling ass police officers!! i was at your typical swaggeriffic college party last night: music bangin’, drinks flowin’, flyy ass people all around… all of that—and of course, the club was jam packed… (mind you, its like this EVERY fucking wednesday) well evidently, there were too many people on this particular night, and the police came in and shut the club down around 1:30. That’s when all hell broke loose! They had blue coats on foot, steed, and automobile running everybody leaving Time to their cars and away from their beloved Granby St… mind you, everybody else leaving all the other clubs, were chillin’, livin it up and shit, while they shooed all the black people home. We weren’t even allowed to go into the other freakin’ clubs! If this isnt a prime case of that bullshit… idk what is. im irked

A few weeks ago, my brother and I were discussing the whole Jeremiah Wright fiasco and the validity of some of his theories, namely his claim on the origination of AIDS. This led to a discussion on the CIA’s history of drug trafficking, COINTELPRO, and the Tuskegee Experiment, among other things. My brother then told me about these bees and I looked it up and read the wikipedia article. I thought it was effed up when I read it, but I definitely didn’t make the connection b/w people and bees. Very Insightful, Chris. And Hilarious! Thank you.

Here’s an article that I think you all might enjoy. Its long, but worth reading: http://www.lipmagazine.org/~timwise/NationalLies.html

This is totally off topic but I had to vent somewhere…I dont have my own blog.

I watched Real World 20 last nite because one of our paralegals daughters is the blonde chick from Columbia SC. Anywhoo…why is every black woman cast on this show a stripper, slut, or angry militant educated black chick. No wonder so many white people think those are our only options. Every brotha on the show tries his hardest to hook up with the white girls. No wonder they think black men want to chase the European bee. Not that this show didnt already annoy me, but ugh.

Sorry, back to the bees.

Nothing wrong with being an angry miltant educated Black chick! They edit that shit to death. Ayanna from Road Rules went to Howard and she is a real class act, very kind lady.

MTV methodically picks black people to play these rolls. Every black person has been angry, extremely ignorant, gay and just doesnt know it yet, argumentative, etc. Except for last season, they was no black person at all. They put someone of Middle Eastern heritage in, i guess they figure she’d fill the ‘brown’ quota. Sand niggas. Regular niggas, niggas just the same.

It’s funny though, if you have a white guy who is a raging lush, they think it’s funny/cool/him just being him. Let there be a black guy on the show, or hell even a black girl on the show like that, they’d have little house meetings about how they feel threatened, we have to vote this MF out.. last night he put a hole in the wall, I’m afraid he may rape me next.

And what white people don’t do to us on TV, we do to ourselves. Thank you flava flave for bringing your brand of coonery to the CoonPN, or My9 whatever the hell it is. Thank you Snoop and co for Soul Plane.. let yt sit back with his hands folded behind his head saying ‘eggselent’ like Mr. Burns

Please i work with a woman who’s husband is a producer for VH1, they have a producers for their shows whose job it is to get the cast drunk as possible then tell them the things that other cast members said during confessionals. There’s nothing real about any of it. They made Kevin Powell look crazy in the first one and geese he’s Kevin Powell.

And if your black and educated and not angry you missed the point some where, forgot to read something along the way.

However, if you put me in a house with a bunch of drunk White 18 year old whoreority girls and some White douchebags and some cornball Black dude trying to fuck the White girls, my sassiness would shine like vasaline on a Black child’s cheeks in the winter.

Because obviously in the real Real World, black people only fall into one of those few categories. Anyone take Psychology? This is typical outgroup homogeneity. Because Goodness forbid they try to cast a black person that is different from that type (i.e that Jesus guy from Philly) then its all a subtype. Like, oh, he’s just one of a kind. No one really likes him/cares for him/ratings go down…you get the point.

I listened to “Slava Slave” (flave) on a morning show, specifically “missjones in the morning” –NY. They went back and forth about how they’re “getting this money” and how there will still be enough money in for her come-up. Why do so many Black entertainers vocalize this underlying reason for what they do? When one only creates/works to “get money”, that diminishes the product. FOr example–Tyler Perrys’ last movie. I am still campaigning to get my money back. You can’t have 12 projects going on and still make a quality film. And he wonders why mainstream media is not taking him seriously.

Don’t you just love when you see something on TV and that minstrel show music starts playing in your head. I always see this poster that was in my brother’s barber shop, Amos’s head big pink lips, black skin and the phrase ‘dis sho am good!’ across it.. i dont remember what the product was. But i hated the poster. And every time i see some unsavory ish on TV i picture that.. and the piano music.. the last time i remember this happening is when i saw the commercial for Flava Flav’s show.

I remember one time i was leaving work, i got on the elevator and these two white girls were on, talking about their plans for the weekend. One said ‘I want to go see Soul Plane’ and the other was like ‘Yea, that’s going to be soooo funny! omigad I can’t wait’. I felt embarrassed & pissed at the same time. This is what they enjoy.. coonin on the big screen.. and MF’s are happy to give it to them.. sometimes the money isn’t worth it.

Because we as a black race have been cursed people! I’m all about the sick cycles today so bear with me. You grow up in a poor neighboorhood-> bad schools-> begin to develop no way out mentality-> just want money and not really wealth attitude begins to develop-> play basketball/sell drugs/rap/comedian/sell out!->only use money to buy certain things considered symbols of wealth in your former neighborhood like 100 million pairs of sneakers and uselessly heavy chains-> “inspire other kids to be just like you”-> have kids but they are only exposed to what you’ve been exposed to.

Where could this all stop? At the momofofo education! If we weren’t plagued with bad schools with such bad conditions that even good teachers can’t make a difference, then the idea would be to strive to be better than what is already expected of us.

@ Miss Ray

I feel what you’re saying school conditions and lazy teachers do play a major role, but i always ALWAYS have to stress the importance of having parents who care about your education. It’s not all up to the teacher, it’s the parents job as much as it is the teachers, if not more. I grew up in The Bronx, the public schools were bad, kids getting raped in the auditorium by security guards (why did we have security guards in elementary school to begin with?), kids beating up teachers, (my music teacher got japped with a trumpet), etc. Parents have to instill in their child the thirst for knowledge, even if they themselves didn’t/don’t have it. My parents didn’t graduate college, and not because they didn’t want to, they couldnt go. Had to help take care of the family, in both cases. My dad was there all the time when i was doing my hw. Made me erase every damn thing if it was wrong, or if he thought it was sloppy. It made me so mad, but now i appreciate it so much. My teachers didn’t give a rats ass.. as long as i scribbled something on the paper they were happy.

Long story short, the school can be crappy, but the standards at home should never be.

@ Miss Ray and Lady

As a teacher, I can say that no matter what kind of school you attend, there is no greater influence on potential success than parental involvement. Where I teach, there is excellent funding, a helathy racial mix (1/3 blk, <1.3 hisp., rest white) And the story goes: Most of the kids in special ed. behavioral classes are black due to emotional issues/fighting, etc. The special ed. black kids with speech impairments talk just like their parents–which translates into babbling that no one understands–warranting extra help.
At the same time, my collegues often complain about outspoken parents who are always trying ot micormanage the school. But, these are always white parents– who are lobbying for the school to live up to its promises, spend money responsibly, and they keep us on our toes. On the rare occasion that you hear from black parents, it is usually to come curse one of us out–or tell us that “my child aint going to no special ed. class.” And this is even though they are reading three grades below level.

Parents need to be at home towering over kids during the HW hour(s), limiting TV, doing projects with/for their kids, looking inside their backpacks and instilling in them the same fear that I had of my teachers.

17 04 2008

@Sister Toldja — in anmarie’s defense, Why did I get married was good..relatively speaking . His movies are nothing more than preachy, self-satisfying and fake! Do we really want people believing that successful black people really sit around bonfires talking about…how successful they are? How can he be taken seriously.

My son’s school is like 75% hispanic, 15% black, 8% white, 2% other.. something to that effect.. i don’t recall the demographics but.. most of the kids are ESL students.. I mean, i understand that people come here, have their kids here for a better life but why don’t you even try to learn english? MOST of the hispanic kids there don’t speak a lick of english, the parents leave it up to the school to teach them. Then when they get home all they hear is spanish, so it’s like what’s the point?? The kids who do speak english now suffer. My son tells me all the time how he, and some other girl named Olivia (yt child) always get the right answer and how sometimes the teacher won’t call on them because they want someone else to answer. When i spoke to the teacher about skipping (do they still let kids skip kindergarten?) she had this ‘Oh really?!’ look on her face like what makes him so special. I’ve been reading to/teaching/challenging my son academically since he was born. And now you want to stunt his academic growth cause Pedro doesn’t know wtf the teacher is saying and won’t raise his hand?? If i left it up to them my boy would be dumb as a brick..

Parents can’t assume that the school will do it all..

Lady–dont event get me started about ESL. We have entire school committees aimed at closing acheivement gaps for ESL students (now called ELL–English Language Learners *slowly rolls eyes*). WHen I send notices home, I have to run around the school on my break looking for someone who can scribble some spanish to translate what I’ve written. When the parents do show up for meetings, community members are employed to translate for them. Many do not understand the detriment to their child’s learning when they do not learn English. And there is a liberal agenda in this country to encourage foreigners to learn at their own pace (which is like, never). Annoying!

anmarie–it got going when she told him the VD came from her!

Lady–I was so irate I forgot to say @
” When i spoke to the teacher about skipping (do they still let kids skip kindergarten?)”
There is little data to suggest that skipping and retaining akids ctually help them because both approaches can be developmentally detrimental, so your school is not gonna be very supportive of that. However, your principal has a responsibilty to ensure that the teacher is challenging your son. He should not be getting dumbed down cuz she cant differentiate the curriculum. I would walk my ass in there and demand that–then make sure she gives you a plan of action on how she will ensure that he is challenged on a daily basis!

First off, let me jump real quick to the topic at hand and say I just about died reading “Maniacally Genocidal Rapers, Pillagers, and Enslavers of Land, Culture, and Humanity Bees”.

Now to everyone’s hybrid topic. I will admit, I am one of the “children of our future” and am probably the youngest frequent poster on this board. I have to agree with everyone that points out the stereotypical, flat out racist bull shit I see black people in TV everyday (The Boondocks on cartoon network does a PERFECT job depicting this). When I see shows like Slava Slave (Clever, I like it) or any new B.S Snoop sells out for, or Tyler Perry’s stuff, I can’t help but think to myself “Damn, I guess we really do have a price for our pride”.

I stopped watching BET back in middle school, not only because I didn’t understand why these ugly ass rappers could get with such good looking women, but there was something on there that just didn’t sit right with me (I think Comic View did it in for me). There’s one Boondocks episode in which a powerful reverend of the black community (oddly enough played by Ceelo) sells his power and voice for money and “niggitry”. It really makes me sad when “gettin our money” is more important than our self worth.

Hi everyone, sorry I’m late with today’s proceedings…

Last night’s Real World was…*sigh* Aside from the fact that the girl from Philly (my hometown) is a loon, the other two dudes had issues beyond recognition. WTF did that white girl say, “I didn’t think someone so cute could come out of a place like that?” Then the dizzy bitch asked it to be edited out and laughed. Asshole.

The white boy with the anger issues looks like he gels his hair with pre-cum. I don’t follow his aesthetic. And the the tall black guy acts like he’s been told that he’s good looking one too many times, and he probably keeps a waiting list for his dick. Did you see his Hugh Heifner PJs? I vote no.

BET is far worse, if for no other reason than this shit is propagated on a self-titled “Black Entertainment Television” network. I miss Tavis Smiley’s show…and even BET news a little. VH1 is a ragged mess. First they hated hip hop, now all they do is exploit it. I want to the oil slick that is Flavor Flav to stop spreading and contaminating everything.

If we don’t get a Cosby Show or Fresh Prince or some shit back on the air, I’m going to start a petition to keep black people off the air, cause clearly we don’t know how to act.

Mr. Smith

@ Maya,

Fresh Prince, Cosby Show, My Brother and Me….

Shows that actually taught me something rather than the following formula:

Smoke kush + Get Money + Make it rain + Get signed by a record company = BET “Real Black” success.

I hate Viacom.

I just read on Media Take Out (Don’t judge me) that Slava’s 21 y/o son might star on season 4 of Slava of Love.

After everything that has been said I feel that everything can be blamed on the parents. Like Mr. Smith, I too am young, and many of us are being raised by the television or our older, unsupervised siblings, and therefore have all bets against us. If Flav’s son does get a show and “shows” his ass, can we blame him?
Also, I don’t think its fair to place ALL blame on producers/networks for how we are portrayed on TV. (maybe 50%) Its not like there isn’t plenty of evidence that a large number of people like that exist in real life. For instance: train during rush hour. Amung all of the whites in suits there will be some Hispanic kids saying “nigga” 50 times to a group of goonies talking about slanging and F-ing ho’s. You may also see a black girl in low-rise jeans giggling and shaking her butt on them. The only difference is that the ones on TV get to embarrass us in front of everyone.

Damn… that’s pretty much the same kind of racist undertones that the western world has subtly heaped on for centuries.

Merri, that Akon shit made my day. You don’t understand how much I HATE that man. I have been waiting for his downfall for a minute. I wonder how many of his wives know the truth about him….or does he even HAVE wives? Is he even African? Maybe he’s just a dark-skinned dude from Utah! Maybe he’s in Blackface? The whole thing is just splendid. I always thought he was just the music industry playing a nasty joke on me anyway.

Sister Toldja – from what I understand Akon was BORN in Senegal, but came to America when he was under the age of 5. So that other BS about him struggling to fit in and speak English are lies as well.

Mrs.Epps

hahahha I must agree wiht Merri dude came here when he was under 5…1/2 the kids in america under 5 that are american cant speak good english hahah..and him struggling yea right yea he struggled to get his dick off that 14 yr old girl’s ass when he was on stage dancing with her..but if u see the girl she dont even look 14! these little girls these days sure grow up fast. Must be somehting the water or all that MSG in the food hahah. Girls in 6th grade got C cups n shit. When I wa s in 6th grade i just started growing my speed bumps.

It is impossible for girls to hate other women simply bee the conversation which you can have with other females is so very different from that which you can have with males.

But you r other point is also true that male and female friendships are prevented by jealousy from other females with good reasons given how females choose their partners.

Speaking of ‘projected’ racism — as a kid I always had a problem with chocolate cake being called ‘devil cake’ and the vanilla one being ‘angel cake’. Anything white being ‘pure’ and ‘virginal’ and black being ‘scary’ and ‘sinful’.

Even as a 14 year old I knew something was fishy.

the absolute truth….
yup you can be guaranteed that if it’s dark it must be evil and sinful..
in the cinema world…
brunettes are always sluts and hoes and generally all round bad and blondes the ones who need saving from evil… the blondes always fell over and were in peril which is always fun to watch….
except bette davis and barbara stanwyck who were ‘brunettes’ in my eyes…
joan crawford is a case in point… but she was the bomb. evil bitch!!!!
the actress that really changed it was audrey hepburn..
anyway i digress… it’s early and my synapses are all over the place..
dark chocolate is better for you..it’s purer…. let’s consider that and enjoy it… white chocolate is a heart attack in solid form… good.. let them eat it …lol…

Funny coincidence that I stumbled on this post only a few days after hearing about Africanized bees and wondering essentially the same thing, but without doing the research or so succinctly stating the problem. Thanks for doing the work for me! Hilarious web site. Keep it up.

If you want enslavement analogies in the animal world, look no further than to ants..

See, the slave ant is BLACK, or as they refer to it as “another variety”!

“Another variation is in a European species that attacks ants that are significantly larger in size. The queen invades a nest by clinging on the rightful queen and slowly chokes her to death.”
