The blessing of America

We should never ever forget our history and all the terrible things that have occurred in the United States. Slavery was in contradiction to the founding documents of the people who framed them.

For centuries we failed to live up to the idea that all men are indeed created equal. The beauty of the founding documents though is that they were created in such a way that it allowed us to apply remedies to that which was wrong. So we were able to successfully battle slavery, Jim Crow, beat the Klu Klux Klan, lynchings, prison camps, integrate the military, integrate sports leagues, Brown vs Board of Education etc., etc., etc. 

With the passage of time, the United States has fought injustice, racism, inequality and other ills that have plagued society since the beginning of time. Keep in mind that before the United States, the way of the world was exactly what we fought to defeat. People lived their lives according to the whims of kings, monarchs, and tyrants. The rights that we enjoy in the world today and in the west is a gift given to the world by God through the United States and a handful of others nations. 

While slavery was a scourge that plagued the world since time immemorial, it was the British, then the French, then the United States that gave freedom to slaves in a way that was never ever done anytime before in human history. 

Nations like Saudi Arabia abolished slavery in the 1960s, and in Mauritania, slavey was abolished in 1981. in 2020 slavery is a scourge that still plagues the world. Many women and children are enslaved in the sex trafficking industry, while in current day Libya, actual slave markets exist and thrive. In Sudan there are enslaved people who can only dream of the freedom that we enjoy in America. 

Today in America we have grown so used to the way of life that we have that we think it exists everywhere, and that this is the way it always was. People need to be reminded that it is not, and it has not always existed in the way we have it in America today.

This is a very new experiment in history, no older than 250 years old in terms of the type of Democracy that we enjoy today, and no older than 160 years in terms of the way that America and others in the world view slavery.

Despite all that America has achieved. Despite all that we have done to correct the ills of the past, people continue to hold America’s sins against the country as a whole, failing to appreciate what we have now. Here is the thing to keep in mind though. As much as America has not always lived up to its ideals, there have always been people all along way, holding the country accountable, fighting to make the country into what we know it to be today.

During slavery there was the abolitionist movement and other examples of people rising to combat racism and other ills that prevented the country from achieving it’s full potential.

It is because of the promise of America that we passed the many civil rights bills that we have over the years, and got us to where we are today. The America of today is a world in which opportunity awaits everyone. Does racism exist? Sure! But there is no group of people in 2020 America who has to overcome what people in 1960s 70s, 80s, or 90s and earlier  had to endure. The racism that does exist is not enough to stop any group from achiving success by simply making use of the opportunties that do exist. 

The fact that bad things happen in life, including racism is the consequence of living in an imperfect world where bad things are bound to ocur. 

If no racism is the goal, then people are destined to be disappointed for the rest of their lives. Racism, like greed, like hatred, like jelousy, sociopathy, and all of the other reasons why people do bad things will be with us until the end of time.

We can choose to be appreciative of all the blessings that we have, and continue working to improve the society that we live in, or we can continue to live in grievance, upset that bad things do happen, reaching for this fantasy world where no racism exists.

Happy Independence Day America!

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!

Jussie Smullet and victimology in the black community

Ray Charles reached out from the crypt to comment on the Jussie Smullet affair. He wanted everyone to know that even though he is both blind and dead, he could see from where he was that something did not seem right with the whole matter. Ray said that if people were willing to remove their blinders, they too could have seen that there may be more to the story. As the saying goes “none so blind as he who will not see.” That seems to be the default position of the left and the Democrat party. They are willingly blind to the reality of  life in this country. They are emotionally invested in the idea that America is a cesspool of racist hatred. Instead of simply battling racism where it does show its ugly head, and then keep moving, they jump for joy because they get a situation to exploit. The Jussie Smullet story proves it one more time.

So now we know that there is a lot more to the story than Mr. Smullet would have us initially believe. The story quickly began to unravel after he first made the claim, and the sordid details are now all over the news. Now to be truthful, who knows!?! It is possible to be the victim of a hate crime in Chicago. Keep in mind though that in Chicago, 88 percent of the people voted against Donald Trump. It is not impossible that he would be attacked by two white supremacists shouting “this is MAGA country,” in the middle of a city that is predominantly black, with a large gay population, where virtually no one voted for Trump, at two in the morning, in the freezing temperatures of a polar vortex, after waking up to have a snack and realizing that he had nothing to eat at his place, then heading out in the freezing cold where he was beaten and rubbed. Whew! It is possible but unlikely. Ok, let’s get back to the point. The point is that if this incident happened exactly as Smullet claims it did, it does not prove that white supremacy is a major problem in the country. The reality is that white supremacists are not running roughshod across America. The Klu Klux Klan is not a group that has any influence in America. The handful of Nazis in America are not power players socially, politically, economically or otherwise. They hold no sway. If they hold a rally, no more than a handful are represented. They are always outnumbered tenfold by counter protesters who wish to make it very clear to them that their vision for America is not wanted or welcomed. 

Displays, accusations, or the slightest hint of racism is the fastest way to get people ostracized in American society today. Businesses, educational institutions, and other organizations are always putting systems in place to ensure that racism is aggressively tackled. There is a whole branch of government that is committed to fighting racism in the workplace, people can file individual lawsuits, class action suits are common. Many times businesses are willing to just settle if they are accused of racism. HR departments across the country work hard to ensure that people are treated fairly on the job, but none of these things matter, or is enough for the race pimps in the Democrat Party, and on the radical left to accept that the system is not out to get black people. They’d rather take incidents like what allegedly happened to Smullet, and gleefully hold it up as an exhibit of America’s resentment of black people. 

It is sad because the United States remains so needlessly divided on race, based on lies propagated by a handful of power hungry people whose modus operandi is to divide and conquer. Jussie Smullet should be a case study in victimology. Here is a young, handsome, successful black man with the world at his feet, but is not enough by that. He has fallen in to the trap that so many black people have fallen into, displaying an eagerness to wallow in the mire of victimhood.  In addition, too many white guilt ridden liberals continue to promote the idea that black people are victims of white America. They have this need to present themselves as woke heroes of the black man. These white liberals who want desperately to assuage their guilt ridden conscience for the evils of generations past, and show the world that they are good whites have a big role to play in this unfortunate saga. They need to stop! Leave black people alone if that is the only way they think that they can offer their help to the black community.
