Trump has the Support
of the Police, the Army
and the Klan
. . .Oh Why Can't the Blind See?


"I’d venture to say, this angry WASP
backlash is hyper-escalating at scary-ass
pace. The Johnny Reb’s coming
back-to-life in front of our eyes,
like Frankenstein."

Lord Trump has the backing and support of the US military veterans, local police departments across the land, and he’s garnered the endorsement of the Klan.

As in Ku Klux Klan.

Oh why can’t the deaf hear?!

I can’t say I’m scared, but I am concerned.

Also, the Orangeman has the political backing of Republican TEA Party figures like Governors Paul Page, Chris Christie (HR Puff N’-Stuff, no?) and Confederate Congressman Jeff Sessions - who honestly believes Black folks need to be put back in our assigned pre-civil rights movement place. His support will grow. Trump’s crafting a coalition of angry White people, White people my Black friends have been telling me for years live only below the Mason/Dixon Line, in mobile homes and log cabins.

What I hope Black America is realizing; The Confederacy, the Land of Cotton, sugar, tobacco and Dixie isn’t a geographical location from a bygone time! No, instead it’s a mindset, a mentality,an attitude and perspective which is alive n’ well.

Ain’t that a bitch?

The mentality behind the murder of four little girls in a Birmingham church half-a-century ago, the mindset which propelled the murder of Emmett Till is alive n’ well in these once purported-to-be United States of America. Trump's breathed life into the Klan, gave it a overly tanned face, and hurricane-swept hair, Trump’s provided Klan-minded folks with a “Great White Hope” they can rally behind all across the land. I say the KKK is a coast-to-coast organization; From Alaska-to-Nebraska, Fargo-to-Key Largo, Boston-to-Austin and LA- to-The Chesapeake Bay- horrifically the Klan lives!

One more time; The Klan lives!

Go ahead, call me an alarmist, a scaremonger or a doomsayer if you want. I feel more like Paul Revere, dipped in chocolate.

The Rednecks are coming! The Rednecks are coming!

The KKK is an All-American institution, unquestionably as “”All-American” as Captain Crunch cereal, Johnny Quest, Ford T-Birds and lynch-mobs

Over the last few months you highly-educated hifalutin puffed-up pretentious negroes have rolled your eyes when I tried to say this unorchestrated, scatterbrained shotgun approach the Black agenda seems to have and we all seem to be expounding-upon and pontificating about - is missing the target.

It’s not simply about Flint, Ferguson or Hollywood. It’s about Rosewood.

The revolution is being televised, it’s all over cable news - while Black folks are focused on what are really sidebar issues. Look, come November this year Black folks will likely be facing an angry White establishment which has seized power and intends to turn back the hands-of-time and erase and eradicate “progress.”

Will Smith didn’t get an Academy Award for revealing the inherent barbarity associated with modern-day gladiators: forgive me but Black folks have more pressing issues. Trumps Stormtroopers are almost at your front door. See, first they came for the Mexicans, dragging out of the house, in the middle of the night 77 year-old grandmothers and 7 year-old little girls, then they came for the Muslims, of any race.

Then they’ll come for you n’ me. We too are the enemy they prepare for. We’d better stand together or we'll sure-as-hell hang together.

See, they’ve already got the noble Red man where they want him, and where they want you n’ me.

If Trump wins the 2016 presidential election… Americans of color are going to have more than a little bit of hell on our hands.

If Trumps loses the 2016 presidential election… Americans of color are going to have more than a little bit of hell on our hands.

America is about to become, for all Americans of color, a far less-hospitable, less-congenial, and less-welcoming place… if “less than” what we've been getting is even conceivable to my naive peers. It appears it’s been a task, a chore an overwhelming enterprise for most White folks just trying to be cordial n’ courteous, just trying to tolerate us from as far away as possible.

Please note the anger you see, hear and feel pouring out of Trump’s cross-burnings.

Just for a moment, if we can step-out of the lecture hall or the coffee shop and venture into “Harsh Reality-land:” Lord Trump has the backing of the White male led US military - veterans and current, the backing of local White male led law enforcement across the land, and “The Don” has the support, the endorsement of the Klan. Least I add, this iron-fisted, tyrannical ruler has what’s amounting-to his own troops, those rank n’ file eager-beaver Rednecks we see at his Council of Conservative Citizens who’ve been preparing for this moment all their lives. Remember the Militia's? They still exist and are training, preparing … eagerly awaiting Trump’s race war.

Well, okay - they’ve been getting ready at least since the day some Black guy took their position on the football team, or a Mexican women took their job down at the office, or some other Black Dude took their girlfriend.

Can you say “coup d’etat?”

If not, can you say “overthrow,” “hostile takeover” or “illegal seizure of power”- all under the guise of American “patriotism?” If there was a Black CIA, FBI or other “Intelligence gathering Organization” searching for threats to the “nation within a nation,” to Black America, surely we’d be too preparing for war against angry White folks. But no, Black folks fate, our physical well-being in case of White mobs . . . rest in the hands of the police and the military forces . . . who back Trump, who’s backed by the KKK?


Since the day the very real “game of life” was no-longer “rigged” and most White folks actually had to somewhat compete on the playground, hardwood courts, grassy fields of competition, classrooms, job sites and bedrooms … , to earn their success, these folks have been readying retribution, reprisal . .. revenge. Who do you think all those guns, tanks, bazookas and grenades are for?

Oh why can’t the blind see lord?!

Black America, you’d better recognize “who n’ what” confronts you.

I’d venture to say, this angry WASP backlash is hyper-escalating at scary-ass pace. The Johnny Reb’s coming back-to-life in front of our eyes, like Frankenstein.

I’d like to believe that Black social organizations life the Black Greeks, Masons, Owls, Elks, Mooses,etc., etc., and civic institutions like the Black church and historically Black colleges are talking about . . . surviving, talking about “self-defense” in the face of 1967 good ol’ boy vigilante/militia lynch mobs. Hopefully we’re strategizing about “staying-alive” in a country where someone like Trump is the White people's champion.

But here’s the kicker, Black n’ Brown folks, we can’t win. America needs a solution to its dilemma, and I submit, for the upteenth time it’s dissolving the “union” as we know it, and creating ethnic homeland states to alleviate some of the growing tension and mounting hostilities.

Euro-Americans get Idaho, Utah and Montana, Asians get Alaska and Hawaii, Native Indians get the Dakotas, Latinos get New Mexico and Arizona and Blacks get Mississippi, Georgia and the US Virgin Islands . . . laugh if you will but I’m putting forth a plan which could save this empire from imploding, and taking millions of us all with it.

In the mean-time 2016, for Americans of color, it’s either the ballot, the bullet or the passport baby. Pick one. And you’d better be quick about it.
