The Right Revel In The Death And Destruction Of African-Americans On Their Media Platforms.…

As we strug­gle to under­stand the deep lev­els of indif­fer­ence, antipa­thy & hatred many white Americans har­bor towards African-Americans, a look at the past may offer up a win­dow of what occurred dur­ing slavery-(the what).
The past may not ful­ly explain [why,] because after over two hun­dred years of free labor, abject servi­tude, being raped, muti­lat­ed, sodom­ized, beat­en, and have every imag­in­able evil vis­it­ed upon them, they ought to be the ones who are owed an apol­o­gy. They are the ones who are owed some­thing. They are the ones who have the god­damn right to be angry, hate­ful, bit­ter, and venge­ful.
And so though the past will not explain the “why” it offers up an oppor­tu­ni­ty that may help to explain whether any­thing will change, based on the actions tak­en so far by African-Americans.
From slav­ery to the civ­il war, from the Black codes which essen­tial­ly re-enslaved the recent­ly freed enslaved Black peo­ple after the civ­il war, to the efforts of Federal, State and Local Authorities to reestab­lish a sys­tem of enslave­ment of the Black pop­u­la­tion that was just released as a result of the Emancipation Declaration.

As it was dur­ing slav­ery- slave catch­ers used dogs to bru­tal­ize blacks.

Marching and singing will nev­er change a damn thing, one can­not leg­is­late a change of heart, but one can ensure that there is leg­is­la­tion that changes peo­ple’s actions.
We may nev­er be able to stamp out evil, igno­rance out of the hearts of those so pre­dis­posed, but we sure can make it so that when they act out of those pre­dis­po­si­tions the con­se­quences are so severe that oth­ers will think twice about fol­low­ing suit.
That is how you change behav­iors. The hunt­ing and killing of Black peo­ple by white south­ern slave­hold­ers as white lib­er­als in the north stood pas­sive­ly and with the full back­ing and acqui­es­cence of the Government and Supreme Court has been a sta­ple in America.
Those poli­cies have nev­er been flushed out of the body politic, the demons have nev­er been exor­cised. Slavery and the hor­rors vis­it­ed on African enslaved peo­ple by slave­own­ers and the silence of white so-called lib­er­als is America’s for­ev­er shame.
But it is far worse than just America’s shame. If not dealt with with the cor­rect lev­el of mea cul­pa, truth & rec­on­cil­i­a­tion and the appro­pri­ate lev­els of com­pen­sa­tion, it may very well be America’s unrav­el­ing.


The History Channel is a good place to start for Blacks, and also for Whites & oth­ers, who would like to under­stand the his­tor­i­cal under­pin­nings of the hatred, vio­lence, rapes, muti­la­tion, and death, upon which the United States was found­ed, instead of the pro­pa­gan­da of lies about its gen­e­sis based on a con­trived nar­ra­tive of hon­or and reli­gion.
In the link above, I have includ­ed a doc­u­men­tary for those of you who would like to set aside social media for a few min­utes, set aside tak­ing self­ies of your­selves, resist post­ing them in order to get likes from peo­ple you do not know.
I know that my state­ments are a bit incen­di­ary and some may find it to be an affront to their sen­si­bil­i­ties. That is exact­ly the emo­tion I want to pro­voke in you.
I want you to become angry enough that you [will] do what I sug­gest, learn a lit­tle bit about what occurred in the past to our ances­tors, in order to under­stand why the things that are hap­pen­ing to you and I, are hap­pen­ing today.

It con­tin­ued through the sixties(60’s) to the present day.

If you do read and under­stand, or even watch some of the doc­u­men­taries that accu­rate­ly depict some of the hor­rors of the igno­bil­i­ty of slav­ery, you [may] start to bet­ter under­stand that you can­not start a project on mur­der and exploita­tion and end up with the prover­bial shin­ing city on a hill.
You will under­stand the vicious cru­el­ty of Presidents like Franklin Pierce who import­ed what he called (nig­ger dogs) from Cuba to hunt run­away enslaved peo­ple. The Dogs were excep­tion­al­ly vicious and would lit­er­al­ly rip the skin from the bones of the peo­ple they inter­cept.
Pierce is from the State of New Hampshire, where there is a pri­vate University named after him today. He is viewed as one of the worst pres­i­dents ever. He was the 14th pres­i­dent of the United States, he was pop­u­lar and out­go­ing, but his fam­i­ly life was a grim affair, with his wife Jane suf­fer­ing from ill­ness and depres­sion for much of her life.[1]All of their chil­dren died young, their last son being grue­some­ly killed in a train acci­dent while the fam­i­ly was trav­el­ing short­ly before Pierce’s inau­gu­ra­tion. He was a heavy drinker for much of his life, and he died of cir­rho­sis of the liv­er in 1869. Historians and schol­ars gen­er­al­ly rank Pierce as one of the worst and least mem­o­rable U.S. Presidents.[w]

Modern-day slave catch­ers oper­at­ing with the full author­i­ty of the state.
Note: This man is in hand­cuffs, yet they allow the dog to maul him while they kneel with smirks on their faces.Qualified immu­ni­ty and the impuni­ty it breeds.

Today Franklin Pierce is long gone, he is a dis­tant foot­note in his­to­ry, count­ed only because he has to be count­ed among the group. In the White House is anoth­er White Supremacist, no dif­fer­ent than the oth­er white suprema­cists who occu­pied that office even in recent times. In fact, apart from Barack Obama, one would have to search real­ly hard to find a pres­i­dent who, even if not a white suprema­cist, has­n’t used racist tropes and stereo­types, at least to get into the office of the pres­i­den­cy.
America is not about to become any­thing but what it is. The idea that the white major­i­ty is good and decent, is a false­hood per­pet­u­at­ed by the likes of Barack Obama, it was mere­ly a fig­ment of his imag­i­na­tion, or a line he need­ed to use to ingra­ti­ate him­self to them, in order to get them to vote for him.
The silent acqui­es­cence of the white major­i­ty in the face of egre­gious acts of sav­agery against Blacks, makes them all equal­ly as guilty as the ones who com­mit the acts them­selves.

Carlos Balli was duck­ing away from Arizona state offi­cers in Glendale when Detective Brad Martin released a dog on him.
The canine, Storm, chewed Balli’s nose flesh off. Storm also ripped a siz­able chunk of skin off Balli’s face, leav­ing him scars that will stay with him for the rest of his life.

Dr. Martin Luther King Junior spoke to this before they mur­dered him fifty-two years ago. King bemoaned the white peo­ple who were appalled by Bull O’Connor’s dogs tear­ing at the flesh of young African-Americans, includ­ing chil­dren, but when it came time for African ‑Americans to be grant­ed full cit­i­zen­ship there­by plac­ing all Americans on an even keel, they all backed away.
In his book titled (crimes with­out pun­ish­ment: white neigh­bors resis­tance to black entry), Dr.Stephen Meyer chron­i­cled the his­to­ry of white resis­tance to hous­ing inte­gra­tion dur­ing the first two-thirds of the twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry. From the author’s per­spec­tive, the book is about hous­ing dis­crim­i­na­tion and segregation‑a con­flict over res­i­den­tial space that is con­test­ed along racial lines between Blacks and whites. It is a sto­ry of Blacks seek­ing to gain access to, and occu­py, hous­ing in neigh­bor­hoods whites con­sid­ered to be theirs, and whites’ efforts to thwart, pre­vent, and deter those efforts and to exclude and expel Blacks from those neigh­bor­hoods.
Not only have they con­sis­tent­ly object­ed to Blacks in neigh­bor­hoods they con­sid­er theirs, but they have also sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly destroyed thriv­ing black towns and slaugh­tered thou­sands of African-Americans to boot.
Dr. Martin Luther King asked the ques­tion, how can you demand that a man pull him­self by his boot­straps when he has no boots?
I take it a step fur­ther, how can he pull him­self up by his boot­straps when you chopped off his damn feet & hands?

Kyle Rittenhouse trav­eled from his home in Illinois to kill pro­test­ers in Kenosha Wisconsin.
Cops in Kenosha gave him and oth­er Militia-mem­bers bot­tles of water and thanked them for being there.

Fifty-two years after Doctor King was mur­dered, the 45th occu­pant of the nation’s high­est exec­u­tive office, joy­ful­ly extolls to his sup­port­ers, his efforts at keep­ing Black peo­ple out of what he calls sub­ur­ban neigh­bor­hoods.
We can talk about the Rodney King beat­ing on March 3, 1991, that set Los Angeles ablaze. We can skip over the tens, pos­si­bly hun­dreds of thou­sands, pos­si­bly mil­lions of peo­ple who have had dogs rip their flesh from their bones, their only crime, the pur­suit of free­dom.
We can look at what hap­pened to George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, John Crawford, Tamir Rice, Akhai Gurley, Philando Castille, Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Alton Sterling, Jacob Blake, and the long stream of our peo­ple and our ances­tors who have been mur­dered by this evil race of peo­ple. [mankind: kind of man].
We can look at the past ‘yes’.….now you tell me what has changed?

Joseph Malott is arrest­ed after the police sicced their canines on him. The dogs mauled Mallot leav­ing him bleed­ing.
Thankfully the DA refused to pur­sue crim­i­nal charges against Mallot who clear­ly was a vic­tim of the sys­tem of state-sanc­tioned racism exe­cut­ed through oppres­sive racist police.

Do you real­ly believe that get­ting down on your knees and pray­ing for this to stop will cause it to stop?
Do you believe that you can appeal to any kind of bet­ter Angels with­in a race of peo­ple who have exer­cised noth­ing but hatred and mur­der towards us?
If you believe that some­how all this will go away with time, please explain 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse whom some reports had his moth­er dri­ving him to Kenosha Wisconsin where he com­mit­ted mur­der?
If you believe that some­how the younger gen­er­a­tion is any less cor­ro­sive and insid­i­ous take a peek at their social media pro­file.….. fol­low their con­ver­sa­tions as you fol­low their old­er, less edu­cat­ed, more incred­i­bly igno­rant par­ents on chat threads.
Growing up I was taught nev­er to rev­el in the death of any­one, even an ene­my. Never in my life have I seen peo­ple laugh and rev­el in the death of their inno­cent fel­low human beings.
That lev­el of hatred will not go away.
Blacks bet­ter wake up.
