Where Are They Now?: ‘Memba Her?

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember Sister Souljah (real name: Lisa Williamson), the early ’90s hip-hop “artist” who urged the murder of White people?
In what became known as “a Sister Souljah moment”, in his 1992 Presidential campaign, Bill Clinton used her to show White voters he was distancing himself from this stuff, even though his was and remains the party of hip-hop and racism. Speaking the Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow Coalition, Clinton told the Black audience that it was wrong for them to embrace the likes of Sister Souljah, who said,

If Black people kill Black people every day, why not have a week and kill White people?


Extremist Makeover: Sister Souljah

So, what is Sister Souljah up to now? Promoting Islamic values to Black American kids in her hit urban lit books and arrogantly comparing herself to Shakespeare. You knew this was coming–all of the hip-hop cretins from the ’80s and ’90s (and 2000s) eventually embrace Islam, the religion which claims to embrace modesty, but is really the Religion of American Cultural Depravity.

These days, she prefers talking about her best-selling novels, The Coldest Winter (1999) and its new prequel, Midnight: A Gangster Love Story (Atria, $26.95).
Both are raw cautionary tales about drugs and violence in New York. She calls them “literature. Period.”
“Shakespeare wrote about love. I write about love. Shakespeare wrote about gang warfare, family feuds and revenge. I write about all the same things.”

Yeah, when I think of Sister Souljah, I think “Shakespeare.” Yeah that’s the ticket.

Her publisher says The Coldest Winter has 1 million copies in print. Midnight made its debut on USA TODAY’s Best-Selling Books list last week at No. 31. This week it’s No. 54.
Souljah isn’t surprised her new book is selling. For nine years, her readers have been asking about Midnight, a handsome, fiercely proud Sudanese immigrant who had a supporting role in her first novel.
“Some girls even wanted his phone number,” she says. “I had to tell them, ‘He’s fictional.’ ” . . .
In the novel, Midnight, who immigrates to New York at 7, comes of age, struggling to uphold his Islamic values amid urban violence. Souljah wrote it to explain “how he was raised and got to be the man he is.”

As opposed to the Islamic values that create mass violence–mass murder, mass rape, and mass torture of Blacks–all over Sudan, from where her character emanates, and to which she’s quite obviously oblivious.

She praises President-elect Barack Obama for his “intelligence and endurance.”

Of course, now, with President-Elect Barack Obama and First-Lady-in-Waiting Blackie O, there aren’t any “Sister Souljah moments”, only a Sister Souljah Presidency for at least the next four years. The Sister Souljahs of the world haven’t been marginalized by Black America, they’ve overtaken the American culture and helped elect a mysterious, red-flag laden President with Marxist leanings.
Congrats, America. We are now a Sister Souljah Nation.

Shakespeare? In that case you might have wanted to open your article more theatrically:
SOULJAH: O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy are white and I shall refuse to kill thee; Or, if thou be Isalmic, thou be but sworn my love.

I think she looked better in battle fatigues. At least we knew it was a lunatic coming.

I expected this review to be worst considering it’s from a racist. The white privileged, yet your too ignorant to see and understand your baseless hatred.
