IN THE END
400+ years race relations issues and white supremacy dazed Black folks psych focus. Now, struggles for ‘social change’ that better’s life, transformed to demands for ‘social inclusion,’ with an eye on hegemonic authority dominates Black causes. Instead of insisting on control over our lives, we demand control over the lives of others, alongside White folks. Individual White folk’s and groups use power to further their own interest at the cost of other people and groups; been doing most of the legalized murdering, stealing, and raping of the land while Black folks watch; we say, “it’s not fair to exclude us, that we have a right to satisfaction (marginal benefits) doing the same.”
From Harriet Tubman to Malcolm X, they feared something was not right with the freedoms we sought or equality available only to the controlling White class. But we struggle to get it anyhow, “if you can’t defeat them, join them.” By any means necessary is the age-old rationale, for survival.
The foregoing is an excerpt from book one of my literary fiction trilogy, Black Urban Patriotism in Modern Times: Blindsided on the White Side. A “what if” examination of African-American patriotism in ‘White folks’ controlled America.
What if, in a Donald Trump administration, considerations to rescind the U.S. Constitution as outdated or obsolete invalidate the Bill of Rights, Amendments, and other protections? Are we sure further discussions that involuntary (unpaid) servitude; in exchange for welfare entitlements that satisfy hegemonic assertions that Black Slavery solves ‘inequality problems’ won’t materialize?
‘Behold American White supremacy,’ wrapped in its glory of the American and Nazi Flag, carrying the cross of Christ and a torch. “Praise the Lord, white European power, and pass the fried chicken, white kids want to see little black ones, and Jews die too, lessons for their bible study!
Little has changed in over 400 years, except xenophobia’s systematized and matter’s are not as they seem.”
