Tyranny and Thugs

Bookmark and Share

What’s the “color,” and who’s the face of both tyrannical tyranny and treacherous thuggery in America?


A Black man.


Believe it. Despite the extreme contrast, yes, Black men sit, simultaneously at both ends of the spectrum


Interesting indeed.


President Obama, according to the reactionary Rednecks, is little more than a power hungry Commie/Pinko/Marxist/militant Black Nationalist tyrant. While the face of “crime” in America is a Black one. President of the strongest, most influential nation on the global block, as well as we’re the face of, the very-embodiment-of street thugs, gangsters and hoodlums.


We are “Public Enemy #1.”


Black men, predictably, are the official poster boys for “crime,” and an angry, unpatriotic one today runs the government, and of course he has a secret agenda to “transfer wealth,” with the ultimate prize being more than the obvious call for reparations, a cadillac for every thug... but he has the mission of disarming White men for the 1st time in the story of America.


This fear, the fear of Black men is precisely why gun sales are through the roof... because White people, specifically and particularly White males, fear Black men. Be that Black man, the duly elected President, or a card-carrying West side baby Piru Crip, they fear us. They believe we have some bone to pick with them, some “unsettled score,” and it’s their desire to be locked n’ cocked, ready to defend the White race.


Now, granted, I can understand this White paranoia... being born n’ raised in the good olUS-of-A. Additionally, I’ve read American History. I understand how this empire was constructed - employing a mentality of “the end justifies any barbaric means to attain it” - and even today Right Wing America, the entrenched Archie Bunker establishment, defends and minimizes the inhumanity of it all, even to this late date. It is no surprise many are walking-around watching their backs.


Black America’s concern? Angry White men and a few million White women are trigger happy and eager to declare “Open Season” on Black Americans, and for that matter all Americans-of-Color, all the rag-head wearing immigrants of color... hell dogs n’ cats of color if you really want to know the truth...


It was one thing when the face of Big Government was Bill Clinton, but when “Big Brother” became a Black dude name Barack... that’s when the fear of a strong central/federal government began to show itself.


Now hang on, the other side of this is, as a Black man, I’m alarmed White folks are preparing to “take back their country.” I’m unsure of where this White Backlash/revolt will go, and how quickly it will escalate to levels not seen since the last era when White folks went mad... the Tulsa Riots, The Chicago Riots and Rosewood.


It’s not the worst idea to attempt to disarm the extremists in US society although, granted, its to no avail - Ricky Bobby, Jethro and Archie Bunker will not turn their guns in. They see their guns as their first, last and logical line of defense. Just as most Blacks across America, understanding the numbers and the embedded racism in America, we’re not going to give up our arms.


I don’t believe the liberals at MSNBC, CNN or the Huffington Post can protect me from their brothers-in-law , nephews and uncles, nor do I know what atrocities the pacifist flower children might ask me to accept until they can have us freed - allowed to live, work, go to school or shop where we want.


Nonetheless, as the gun debate turns into an argument and possibly next a gun fight, let’s be clear here: White folks want their guns, not to protect themselves from Russians or to kill their dinner, no instead they want their guns to protect themselves from Black Presidents and Black gangsters, who according to Rush Limbaugh, are seeking vengeance.


Limbaugh is now promoting the incendiary thought “Lincoln” is so very popular amongst Blacks and nigger lovers because they want to finish the war Abe couldn’t.


The Republican TEA Party is looking for a fight, a reason, an excuse to halt the racial cold war and start a shooting-war... “take back their country” and the All-American culture that comes with it.


The National Rifle Association has dragged the President’s young daughters into the gun debate, and blowhards like Rush and Hannity are defending it - need we forget this is a faction of the US population that has demonstrated they will blow up churches with little girls inside - because a Black life has no more value today than it did in the times of a separate n’ unequal America.


The NRA has been walking the razor’s edge of decency for years, but the gun rights group goes to a new gutter low with an ad criticizing Obama for giving his daughters Secret Service protection while voicing concerns about installing armed guards in schools.


Are the president’s kids more important than yours? Then why is he skeptical about putting armed guards in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school?”


In other words, are these Black lives worth more than you and yours?


Surely, if the Obamas have protection from half mad White folks, than the everyday White family must be allowed to protect themselves from Black thugs and tyrants.


That’s the sentiment I want to hear from “The Right,” the truth. We’re scared and overly paranoid. That’s why so many Whites still characterize the brutality of the Rodney King beating as “well, he did resist” ...and the 24 cops were justified in beating him. Inherent and learned fears justify owning a tank and Bazooka, and believe me they are conservatives out there who own a couple of tanks... just for your Black ass.


There’s no Black Family in America who ought to be without a pump shotgun... lest we forget the tale of these so-called United States of America...
