Racists, and more often than not, the White press, try and equate Far Right Racists and their Racist Politics with Progressives or Liberals and the Politics of Freedom and Equality and Justice for All. I heard a member of the national press say today, “In other words, They have the Far Right, and You have the Far Left. No! They have Racism and Racism Stands Alone! Just another example of how Ignorant Whites in the press are, when it comes to understanding fundamental Rights and Freedoms. And Although they are Freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution, they are Freedoms that Blacks have had to Fight For, Every Day.
America’s Racism did not just begin. It is being propagated on a monumental scale Today by an Ignorant Racist president ...and his equally Racist followers ...and an Incompetent and Complicit Racist Republicant House of Representatives...who have 5 WEEKS to continue to act as the Racists in Charge.
The Far Right and those who believe in Human Dignity and Respect for All ARE NOT to be used in the same sentence. Far Right is Racism personified and to the Nth Degree, as they always have been. The so-called Left IS NOT Extremism.
In the year since Charlottesville, Racist Republicants in Congress have increasingly turned a blind eye to the Far-Right Racism of a Racist president. They have lost interest in a host of urgent policy issues related to racial inequity and especially enforcing the Voting Rights Act, of which they had no interest, in the first place. The cornerstone of the Racist president’s Racist code-word slogan of “Make America Great Again" and Republicants are following the Centuries Old Far-Right Strategy of Racist Politics...Separate and very much Unequal ... and Definitely Do Negative Things Unto Blacks FIRST...and doing their part to "Make America Great ..err White...Again."
That is always the game plan of Racists. If you advocate for Equality and Diversity and Freedom and Fairness for All, Voting as a Right, Health care as a Right, according to Republicants and Racists---which to me are one in the same---those things are extreme, and they are Racist interpretations of “Far Left.”
There is no equivalency with White American Racism as practiced by the trump Republicant Party and Decency and Respect and Principles and Integrity. Blacks and Whites who fought for and who fight for Civil Rights and for Human Dignity and Respect don’t matter to these Racist Neanderthals and to the president of the United States and the press still cannot get it right.
I am convinced one of the major problems with the White Press is, they DO NOT have the resolve and the Black reporters and other Black staff who can explain to them...White folks...how their White Racism impacts Blacks, since we are the targets of such abject Racism.
White folks, no matter how they try and no matter how much they want to be, ARE NOT Experts on Black folks. They either do not want to, or they do not have the stones to...or in the case of FOX, they are damned and determined not to report on White American Racism. African Proverb...“Until the Lion tells his side of the story, the hunt will ALWAYS favor the Hunter.”
The Struggle Continues!
