WHITE AMERICA CONTINUES TO SAY, "Prove there is Racism." Let me submit this one example of the Many.
This White policeman killed George Floyd with impunity by kneeling on his neck and suffocating him. He was caught on tape and by all indications the police murderer knew he was being taped, and killed Floyd anyway. It is called "with malice aforethought." He was charged with 2nd degree murder. The police murderer was allowed bail for his 2nd degree murder. Now the judge in the case has allowed the murderer to leave the state "for his safety." Safety...as a cold-blooded killer?
Imagine a White judge giving a Black defendant Anything close to this "sweetheart deal." White skin=White Privilege & White Racism in AmeriKKKa. Just one case of the egregiously many. BTW...I can prove White American Racism Everyday.
The Struggle Continues!
donald trump SAID THIS WHILE ISSUING HIS PROCLAMATION DECLARING MONDAY COLUMBUS DAY (which it already is)...
"In recent years, radical activists have sought to undermine Christopher Columbus’s legacy. These extremists seek to replace discussion of his vast contributions with talk of failings, his discoveries with atrocities, and his achievements with transgressions.”
This happens when you elect an Ignorant Racist as president who only knows what he has been told about America's Incomplete, Dishonest, and Racist History, since he does not read.
Add this to your pathetic little mind, Dumb Ass Racist president- Christopher Columbus was a Racist like you. He was also dumb as Hell like you. In addition to not discovering America and never landing in the continental United States, he was the FIRST slave trader in this Hemisphere.
And this is who your feeble mind tells you to hold in high regard? A Racist slave trader who got lost and took advantage of an indigenous people who had NO weapons. Par for the trifling Racist "trump course."
An Honor for me to be featured with Mr. Rutledge Henry Pearson, my "American History" Class teacher, my "Civics" Class teacher, the adviser to the Jacksonville Youth Council NAACP during the 1960 sit-ins and Ax Handle Saturday when I was President of the Youth Council NAACP, and my mentor. I also had the honor to submit Mr. Pearson's name for the Florida Civil Rights Hall of Fame. He was inducted in 2016. Thank you Art Republic, thank you Jessie Ball duPont Fund Center, and thank you to the Fantastically Talented Artist, Celso. To share this space with my mentor, Mr. Rutledge Henry Pearson... PRICELESS.
Rutledge Pearson was an educator, civil rights leader and human rights activist. He was also a notable baseball player in his early years. Pearson played for the 1952 New York Black Yankees of the Negro League and he would have played professional baseball in the Major League with the Jacksonville Beach Seabirds but park officials decided they’d rather close the park then allow him to play. This event changed his life and from then on he dedicated his life to the struggle for human dignity and respect.
He was featured on the cover of JET magazine on April 20, 1964, with the headline: "Former Baseball Star Leads Jacksonville Civil Rights Struggle." The article states that he was very influential in recruiting members of the NAACP citing that in just two years he was able to drive membership from a few hundred to over 2,000.
Rodney Lawrence Hurst, Sr. is a civil rights activist, a Black historian, and the author of two award-winning books--It was never about a hot dog and a Coke®! A personal account of the 1960 sit-in demonstrations in Jacksonville, Florida and Ax Handle Saturday. His second book, Unless WE Tell It...It Never Gets Told" gives insight into Jacksonville's Black History and those Blacks who not only impacted Jacksonville and the State of Florida, but this nation as well. His third book, "Never Forget Who You Are: Conversations About Racism and Identity Development" which he co-authored with Dr. Rudy F. Jamison Jr. was released last month.
It was never about a hot dog and a Coke®! recounts with clarity the segregated civic, the segregated political, and the segregated educational climate of Jacksonville Florida in the 1950’s and the 1960’s. Hurt was the sixteen-year-old President of the Jacksonville Youth Council NAACP and was one of the leaders of the 1960 sit-in demonstrations.
These two courageous men change the trajectory of not only Jacksonville but civil rights in the South. It is our honor to have the world renowned artist, @celsoart memorialize these local legends in a #newmonument
(The artist Celso stands in fromt of his most recent Mosaic Mural of Rodney L. Hurst, and Mr. Rutledge Henry Pearson, Civil Rights Icon, and Hurst's mentor.
donald trump's LIES HAVE COST TENS OF THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN LIVES. His lies were front and center on his joke of a town hall that NBC "generously" gave him last night on television. Why? Ratings? God only knows.
donald trump wants to do away with the health care lifeline---ObamaCare/The Affordable Care Act---which has been a lifesaver for millions of Americans. And why does he want to do away with healthcare called by many, ObamaCare? Because it was was one of the signal accomplishments of Black President Barack Obama. An accomplishment which has saved millions of Americans from financial ruin.
When it comes to President Obama, donald trump's Racist stripes are all over the place. Such a Racist illiterate. Yet he was who and what White America wanted to lead America. Be careful what you wish for...and vote for. It can be deadly to you health.
The Struggle Continues!
AFRICANS DID NOT ASK YOU TO BRING THEM HERE. YOU KIDNAPPED AFRICANS FROM AFRICA AND BROUGHT THEM TO THIS COUNTRY IN THE BOWELS OF SLAVE SHIPS TO SUIT YOUR PRURIENT AND FINANCIAL INTERESTS.
You wanted to make sure we were never heard and rarely seen by writing your founding documents to exclude an entire race of people based on the color of their skin, a race of people which you did not consider human. You did this with the full-throated support and connivance of White American Christians and the White Christian community. ALL White Religious denominations in this new country, founded in part on Religious freedom, supported this enslavement way of life.
You and the White Christian Church, mercilessly worked these dark hue of skin persons as a “free labor economy.” These millions of "laborers" made you obscenely wealthy and you did not have to pay them. You developed the American Christian Holocaust called slavery which “birthed” Racism, and All from your twisted and reviled Christian mind which simply ignored Biblical teachings, as the cornerstone of the founding of this “new” Country. American Christianity supported and was a partner in America’s Original Sin.
After slavery made you quite wealthy in every aspect of American life, you still needed more. You could not envision ever giving up these “enslaved persons” who you “owned,” and who made you rich beyond your wildest dreams. So one half of you in this country decided to try and overthrow the other half of this country to continue to feed your vile and greedy pleasures as owners of enslaved persons. Imagine that Christian White America? Fighting a war to keep a race of people in chains to feed your peccadilloes. When you lost, you would not acknowledge the toll of the people you enslaved, and refused to “pay” them for the centuries of abuse you layered on them and the wages you stole from them, under the guise of Christianity.
You continued to elect Racists in presidential clothing, many of whom were Klan members in suits. Racism, and keeping your foot on the neck of Black America literally and figuratively is what you have known and what you have lived by. And that brings us to today. You elected a White Racist incompetent with no character as president to answer to 8 years of a Black dignified President with character. In your Racist mind you knew “your” new president would try and do as his slogan reads, “Make America Great Again” which for you meant putting Niggers in their place...again. And even if he could not, you knew he was publicly trying.
But donald trump did not elect himself. YOU voted for him. WE did not. Funny how that works. You, White America now are going through a hand wringing bit trying to imply you have a social conscience and social justice is the order of the day. Yet at least 1/3 of White America still does not have a social conscience, 1/3 of White America still does not give a damn about social justice, and 1/3 of White America sees my Black hue of skin as cause to call me a Nigger, which means 1/3 of White American does not give a damn about me. Funny how that Christian thing is still hanging around as this 1/3 continues to support a Racist in the White House.
Lines are clearly defined in this upcoming presidential election more so than they have ever been in this country. donald trump is a Racist who wears a suit instead of a robe. donald trump appeals to at least 1/3 of you in White America, who are “out of the closet” practicing Racists. Others of you are still "camouflaged."
When the Racist smoke clears, will White America do what is right, or will White America, once again, do what is politically expedient? I will not hold my breath. Quite frankly, I do not expect much. White America will again vote for the Racist president based on White America’s Racist roots. The White media will mumble something about Whites are angry and never say trump is a Racist and his supporters are Racist. The White Clergy will not say a word. They will however call for a prayer vigil, with masks and gloves while singing the "no-meaning" flavor of the month Christian song. Liberal and Progressive Whites will gravitate to “seeing about” abused animals before they deal with their Racism, and will say and do absolutely nothing. It is called "talking a good game." In other words, business as usual in Racist White America. Why should I expect any difference?
The Struggle Continues!
Rev. William Barber: "America has a pre-disposition to being conned." Wonder why Rev Barber uttered those truthful words?
Do you actually expect a president who has been impeached, a president who did not win the popular vote, a president who has presided over the deaths of 200,000 Americans, a president who has shown NO leadership in the midst of a pandemic, and a president whose pettiness and insults have characterized his disgustingly incompetent administration...does anyone expect this criminal president to nominate someone to the Supreme Court who represents a modicum of integrity, responsibility, and quality?
Having millionaires in the United States Senate determine what is best for working class families, without input from those working class families, is akin---somewhat--- to Whites determining what is best for Blacks, with no input from Blacks...You know that, "We are experts on you, and we know what is best for you." It Will Not Work!
WITH SIX WEEKS LEFT TO GO IN THE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, we are having to wonder whether White America and its Core Racist Attitudes..."tinged with healthy helpings" of White Privilege... will re-elect a Racist Sexist Misogynistic Xenophobic Narcissistic Psychopathic Incompetent Degenerate as President. The fact that donald trump's re-election is even possible speaks volumes about the Racism which flourishes in these As Yet United States, called America. White America can claim...I would certainly not believe them...but White American can claim, THEY did not know trump well in 2016. Well, they know him now and millions of White Americans ...Racist White Americans like the Racism they see.
Let's unpack this...He is the lying-est person that God gave lips. No one believes anything he says except the trump Kool-Aid drinkers, who double as trump Rump Sniffers.
He has no empathy...he has no empathy for Americans in Puerto Rico dealing with hurricanes... he has no empathy for Americans in the West dealing with deadly fires...he obviously has no empathy for the millions of Americans who have contracted Covid-19 ...and he most certainly has no empathy for the families of more than 200,000 Americans who have died from Covid-19. A pandemic which has spread unabated in this country under his pathetic leadership as the puppet placed here by Vladimir Putin.
He allowed Putin to place a bounty on the heads of U. S Soldiers, and said nothing.
He allowed Saudi Arabia to kill an American Journalist, and said nothing.
He allowed his klavern of klan minions to fight in court against healthcare for Americans, and "egged them on."
He allowed his klavern of klan minions to argue against a Women's Right to Choose what happens to her body, and defiantly proclaimed that is his right, since he was "anointed as the sovereign one" by White Anglo Saxon Protestant Christian Evangelical Racists.
He allowed Racist wimps in the White House to spread their Racist venom about immigrants, Black Americans, and Brown Americans, while disgustingly repeating their Racist words through his ignorant, uncouth, and reprehensible lips.
Will White America vote to re-elect this Racist Sexist Misogynistic Xenophobic Psychopathic Incompetent Degenerate as President... that is the only issue. Of course they will. Will enough of them see the error of their ways and vote to get rid of this malignancy on America...that is the question. The Bewitching Hour comes in about 6 weeks. I firmly Joe Biden has the Gonads to stand up to this draft dodger squatting in the White House, and win.
I cannot get away from the fact that 54% of White females voted for this malcontent after he showed them who and what he was...and they voted for him anyway. Whatever the outcome, America has been further broken by donald trump's Racism and his Sexism. It has always been there. Black America knew immediately it was there. He left enough "racist crumbs" where anyone could see if they chose to look. Black America does not, has not, and will not trust a Racist doing Anything.
Since All of White America know donald trump is a Racist Sexist Misogynistic Xenophobic Psychopathic Incompetent Degenerate POS sitting in the White House, what is there to consider? My opinion...the Racism keeps White Privilege at the top of the agenda and White America will not give that up. We shall see. The Struggle against Racism is now and has always been a Marathon...a Very long Marathon. Do Nothing Is Not An Option!
And to those Blacks and Browns and Whites who do not have the stomach to Fight in this Racist Struggle ...who do not have the "stones" to Fight this Racist and malignant cancer named trump, and Fight his many other Racist maladies and Racist pathologies, let me leave you with this...Get Yo' Trifling, Bent-Back Negro/Negress, Kumbayah-Singing Asses Out Of The Way!!!
The Struggle Continues!
Racists are not Racist because they are smart as hell. Racists are Racist because they are dumb, stupid, and ignorant as hell.
It is truly amazing and truly amusing with all of the engineering know-how of today ...with all of the collective knowledge of today...with all of the computers and computer wizards of today...we still do not know how the ancient Egyptians, from the continent of Africa, built the pyramids, the sphinx, the obelisks, the major structures, and the hyperstyle hall at Karnak, and the city of Luxor.
BTW...It is not "taught" today as it should be taught today, but last I checked Egypt was then...and is still...on the continent of Africa...and is not now...nor has Egypt ever been located in Europe.
