Black political liberation, the time has come

If you are a black person living in America today, and your biggest fear is the Klu Klux Klan or white supremacy, there’s no other way to put this than to lovingly tell you that your are living in a mental prison.

This is a prison of your own making with lots of assistance from the left, the media and the Democrat Party.

This is an invitation to free yourself from those self binding chains, and to move into the realm of the liberated. Shout it from the roof top that you are a victor and not a victim. Stop walking around with the mindset that in America you are a second class citizen. You are not!

See yourselves as full fledged Americans with the same rights, privileges and range of boundless opportunities to succeed right at your fingertips, as they are for any other individual or group in this country.

Reject the naysayers who constantly tell you that the only way for you to make it in America is to have the back of one hand in the palm of the other, with sad eyes, barely looking upward, waiting on the crumbs that the government throws your way.

This does not have to be the outlook of any black person in America.

Of course it does not mean that life is not sometimes unfair. It does not mean that things will always go our way. It does not guarantee success, because the sad, awful truth is that in life bad things sometimes happen (including racism) despite our best efforts. That’s life!

That is no reason however to walk around with our heads down, and our shoulders slumped, feeling sorry for ourselves because…the white man, the system or any of the other excuses that black people often use as reasons for taking a defeatist approach to life.

There is no reason to always be suspicious of our neighbors simply because their pigmentation may be lighter than our own.

Be alert as every person should always be. The intuition of self preservation is a gift from God, but stop seeing yourself as the hunted. There is no reason for it.

Say no to the race pimps. Wave buh bye to the color hustlers, and reject the ethnoagitators. Tell Al Sharpton, Eric Michael Dyson, Mark Lamont Hill, Charlamagne tha god, and those of their ilk to take their message elsewhere.

Black people are nothing but pawns in a sordid game of chess to white liberals like Pete Buttigiege, Robert Francis O’Rourke, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. These white liberals want nothing more than for black people to see themselves as poor defenseless victims. Each of them wants to project himself as the savior of Black Americans.

In their twisted world view black people need them to survive. Black people are incapable of thriving on their own without them.

They fear nothing more than a black man or woman with a perspective outside of the status quo.

Black people do not have to go the route that these charlatans demand.

Deal with adversity as it surely comes your way. Confront injustice as you encounter it. Fight for your rights when necessary, but as black people in America we do not have to view every shadow as a racist gun.

As black people let us live as free beings with God on our side, charting our own course with guidance from on high.

Live free!

The high cost of freedom

The saying that freedom is not free is not just a nice sounding cliche. It is a harsh reality that bears witness in blood stained fields across the globe, and in father less homes across the nation. Many other relatives and friends who will never again see their loved ones know all too well that freedom is not free. The bodies laid to rest in the hills of Arlington Cemetary are a poignant reminder of the cost that we pay to preserve freedom. 

In this country’s history there have always been people willing to pay that ultimate price in defense of the freedom that we enjoy, and that so many others take for granted. Those who are the guardians of this liberty that we have been blessed by almighty God to experience have done such a marvellous job that many Americans think that this freedom happens in a vacuum. They live their lives completely oblivious to the sacrifices, and the great toll that is required of those who have sworn to defend this freedom. 

Some Americans even believe that the defenders of this freedom are the very cause of the all the turmoil and the unrest in the world. They naively think that if America was to disarm, then the rest of the world will follow, and that is all it will take to eliminate war from the face of the earth. They are willingly ignorant of human nature. They turn a blind eye to history, and they disregard the norm of oppression that people suffered at the hands of mornarch and despots for most of human existence.

Many of these Americans who hold their country in such contempt fail to realize that this concept of freedom that they enjoy today is relatively new, and was ushered into the world by America. There is however a group of Americans who understands in the truest sense of the words, that freedom indeed is not free. They stand ready to defend the rights of the naive, the ignorant and the ungrateful. They willingly give their lives in defense of those who call them baby killers, war mongers, barbarians, and war criminals. Those who give their lives in defense of freedom understand what is at stake, and because of this they are not easily deterred by those who complain about  America’s so called militarism. 

They understand that in a world of imperfect people, no country is perfect. They know that by standing in defense of liberty, they are also giving the nation the opportunity to be better.  These valiant Americans have been constants in the nations history, whether it was facing off against the mighty British Army or battling their fellow country men for the cause of freedom, they were always there. 

President Ronald Reagan, in a speech honoring the fallen, once paid tribute to one of these noble Americans. The young man’s name was Martin A. Treptow. He gave his life at the young age of 26 in denfense of freedom during the first world war. His attitude exemplified why, in such a short period of time, this country has been able to accomplish so much more than any other nation before it. 

When his body was discovered, his diary was on him, and in it was a short prose he  called “my pledge.” This is what it said: “America must win this war. Therefore I will work, I will save, I will sacrifice, I will endure, I will fight cheerfully and do my utmost, as if the issue of the whole struggle depended on me alone.” Mr. Treptow is just an example of why so many Ameicans can freely live their lives in blissful ignorance and ingratitude. It is the reason why the flag burners, the anthem protesters, and America hating citizens can continue to express what is on their hearts without the fear of political repercussions. 

As we look around the world, the evidence is everywhere that freedom is indeed not free. As Americans we have the choice to complain about all that is wrong in the country, or be thankful that we live in the freest, most prosperous country that has ever existed on the face of the earth. This does not mean that we have to ignore the areas where we need to improve as a nation. The ability, and the willingness to identify real problems where they do exist, and then put systems in place to address them is part of the legacy of those who gave their lives in defense of this great nation. 

Let us honor their sacrifices and be thankful for all of the blessings that we have as Americans.
