RACE AND RACISM ALWAYS TRIGGER “CONVENIENT BLINDNESS AND CONVENIENT AMNESIA” IN WHITE AMERICA.
White America was “conveniently blind” to not consider those whose hue of skin was Black as human beings when America was founded. “Conveniently blind” White America, with the total support of equally “conveniently blind” White Christian America and the White Christian Church, treated Africans as “property” to “establish” the American Christian Holocaust called Slavery, and to get around the teachings of the Christian Bible.
America’s so-called White founding fathers...All Slave Owners...were “conveniently blind” when they “founded” America and when they wrote the founding documents of this country, the Declaration of Independence, and the United States Constitution. Even though they wrote “We, the people” and “All Men are created equal”, they and their words were “conveniently blind” when it came to applying those words to a Race of people whose hue of skin was Black.
When Christian White America kidnapped Africans and brought them to this country as THE source of a Free Labor Economy, America was drunk with “convenient blindness” and “convenient amnesia” as Africans established American Capitalism.
White America hid behind a cowardice shield of “convenient amnesia and convenient blindness” when they went to war as an enemy government called the Confederacy, fighting to maintain Slavery which is the ONLY reason the Civil War was fought. Their reason for fighting the war using terms such as “Southern heritage” and “state’s rights” also is cratered in “convenient blindness” and “convenient amnesia.”
President Andrew Johnson’s “convenient blindness and convenient amnesia” was so acute that as a Slavery supporter and a South Sympathizer, he gave a blanket executive presidential amnesty to Jefferson Davis and his Confederacy cabinet, Robert E. Lee and his Confederacy generals, and all the Confederacy soldiers who fought for the Confederacy seeking to overthrow the United States of America as Treasonous Criminals.
White America Suffers from a terminal case of “acute convenient Amnesia” and “opportune total Blindness” when there are talks about Reparations for the money stolen from Africans and Blacks for 300 years.
American History historians and teachers and professors and textbook authors TODAY HIDE BEHIND multiple heading of “convenient blindness” and “convenient amnesia” as they teach and write about an Incomplete, Inaccurate, and Racist American History, while absolutely refusing to tell the True stories of the Salient contributions by those whose Hue of Skin is Black.
The Obvious Question is Why.
the American Christian Institution of Racism which today is steeped in Brazen and Blatant White American Racist Blindness and White American Racist Amnesia...refuses to admit the Achievements of Blacks in spite of White America’s daily Racist efforts to repress and discount those Achievements. Which means White America will not admit...will not acknowledge...will not allow the teachings of contributions by Blacks who helped to develop this country and helped to make this country In Spite Of the Racist treatment by White Americans. Contributions which cover ALL genres of American Life.
Convenient Racist Blindness and Equally Convenient Racist Amnesia... Reasons Why American Education REFUSES TO TEACH BLACK HISTORY.
The Struggle Continues!
