The Fight against Christian White American Racism and for Black Human Dignity and Respect which started in the 50s and the 60s (and before) continues. Bullets have replaced the police "billy clubs," and tasers have replaced the fire hoses and the ax handles, but the violence is still there. Blacks are the victims of Christian White American Racism then and now. AND NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
Black Voting rights are being destroyed by a Racist Supreme Court and Racist legislatures throughout the country and especially in the South. It happened before. PRIVATE Charter schools, aka segregation academies, are replacing public schools. It happened before. Blacks are harassed and intimidated from voting purely because they are Black. Whtie America-Christian White America-does not want Black America to have a voice and to elect representatives who look like them. It happened before. The Same South that fought a war as an enemy government to maintain slavery, is showing the world what their fight was really about in addition to slavery. Keeping those with a Black Hue of Skin in their place and under White thumbs. They are fighting that same war today.
Disrespect, one of the cornerstones of Christian White American Racism, also continues unabated. We see news accounts daily, and all because Christian Racist White America wanted a Racist in the White House after 8 quality years of a Black President. Pervasive, insidious, and evil racism is the order of the day in AMERIKKKA.
Try as Racist Republicants and others might, "Colored" and "White" signs of days gone by are not myths and urban legends. Of course, we did not put up the signs nor did we cause the conditions for the signs. The hatred and the evilness of Racism are not myths and urban legends. The racist violence and death exacted on Blacks in days gone by and TODAY are not myths and urban legends.
And now, the hypocrisy of all hypocrisies, White American Christians want to deny they fostered, wrote, and romanticized an Incomplete, Dishonest, and a Racist American History while doing their racist best to return to an incomplete, Dishonest, and a Racist America.
Some Black folks and White folks ask the question, "When are we gonna start fighting again?" They have to answer their own question. SOME OF US Have Never Stopped Fighting. The Struggle Continues.
