Trump . . . .” It seems a multitude of Black Americans
are “shocked” this hospitality and lodging hustler, who
occasionally lives above a saloon/gambling hall, is but
one-chessboard move away from becoming President of these undeniably
Disunited States of America. This is the singular, lone thought
which millions of Black, Latino, Asian, Native and Muslim Americans
must come-to grips with. Trump’s ascendance reflects and
illustrates most White Americans are less-tolerant and more-racist
than any of you could have imagined or admitted. Here’s the
2:33, in the AM wake your ass up call Black n’ Tan folks
must hear - the vast overwhelming majority of WASP Americans will
embrace and elect a racist, sexist aristocrat like Trump over a
moderate carpetbagging corporate-owned, anti-gun, pro-abortion,
negro-loving “Dixie-crate” like Hillary. “Shocking”
why can’t the deaf hear?
how can that be? How can you be an American of color, of color now
- and not know, nor see, nor believe this alarming level of
racism/sexism and classism remains intact if not eternally embedded
within White America? How can people of color be “blindsided”
by what is quickly becoming a nation-wide “White backlash”
for which Trump is the people’s champion. That’s White
people’s champion. For everyone else who isn’t White -
this is the beginning of a national nightmare.
why can’t the blind see?
we not see the ever-present ingrained bigotry swelling, rising? Do we
not feel and sense the tidal-wave of resentment, scorn and contempt
most, not all but clearly most of White citizens maintain
for Americans of color? Isn't the “White Flight,” the
yearnings to racially re-segregate America obvious?
most of us are so-disinterested and disconnected from basic history,
be that Afro-American/US or World history that projects like “The
Free State Of Jones,” “Roots” and “OJ”
are “breaking” news for not only White folks - it’s
news for Black people. How can that be? How can we, the people which
Plymouth Rock fell upon - be surprised? It can only be
surprising if we don’t have a clue as to “what”
happened yesteryear . . . and we don’t. I’ve listened to
family, friends, enemies, in laws, outlaws, neighbors, co-workers,
hi-lites n’ low lifes and absolute strangers who happened to be
Black, and almost to a person they minimized, slighted, marginalized
and even dismissed Trump as an oddity, a rarity, a unique White
unicorn. I was constantly told by by the uppity, bourgeois ones that
all the White folks they rubbed asses with, all the ones they golfed
and skied with - all deemed Trump a buffone. It was their educated
negro contention only the lower class “White trash” which
wasn’t well-educated nor well-traveled was the riff-raff
pales in it’s derogatory comparison to Nigger, Spic,
Chink, Injune and etc., so don’t damn my usage of the
… most of White America is White Trash, one or two
paychecks away from being forced to live a peasant-like lifestyle
most Americans of color were assigned at birth.
Mr Webster so
we can first agree what “white trash” is; "white
trash" overlaps in meaning with "cracker,"
The main difference is that "redneck," "cracker",
"Okie", and "hillbilly" emphasize geographical
locations and that a person is poor and uneducated and comes from the
backwoods with little awareness of the modern world, while "White
trash" emphasizes the person's moral failings.
failings” here’s a few synonyms
for “moral,” just in case there’s any questions:
high-minded, honorable, honest, just, noble, incorruptible,
scrupulous, respectable, clean-living and law-abiding. Gee
I can make the argument Trump is lacking in all these areas.
Trump is a trojan horse for a vast-array of “Moral failings”
- he’s a racist, sexist
self-righteous, dishonest white-collar felon who lacks high-minded
principles and and ideas. A small, simple, low-minded con-man, a pimp
who believes rich people
are better than poor folks, and that White men are better than . . .
any and everybody.
interesting, in a hostile land where Black folks are never, ever,
never given the “benefit of the doubt,” where we are
always wrong, ” guilty,” guilty as sin until
proven otherwise. Never innocent until proven-so. Yet you’ve
got both the everyday brothers and sisters and the so-called
enlightened and highly-educated Blacks, naively giving a
self-segregating nation of people, with the track record that America
has - the benefit of the doubt. White America wouldn’t
vote this stone-age caveman into the Oval Office.
delusional negroes couldn’t have been more wrong!
I’d submit what propelled this child-like mindset was a
combination of greed and ignorance. .
Black folks, from the rank n’ file no-collar worker to
Afro-American astronauts to the hifalutin’ Negro aristocrats
can’t tell you what was notable about Booker T. Washington’s
1895 Atlanta Compromise speech. Nor can they tell you
about Frederick Douglass's hard hitting Independence day
speech. They draw a blank when you say Angela Davis.Most
couldn’t tell you one or two points of the Black Panther
Party’s 10 Point Program. But wait, they don’t know
the Civil War from the Revolutionary War from the Korean War. They
can’t tell you about the Great Migration, the Great
Depression or the Greatest, Muhammad Ali - Black folks
were seeing and hearing his “defiant” quotes from the
1960’s for the first god-damn time . . . that’s
lord, we are a slightly-educated, lost, adrift people. And who can
deny this is the dumbed-down, ignorant, unenlightened state of
mass-confusion elitist segregationist like Trump believe Black folks
a man in my fifties, and I can say between growing-up and living in
only two cities, Los Angeles and Denver - with a foot in da’
hood and a foot in the burbs - I can attest I’m always apart of
that Black contingent who does know exactly the significance behind
Fannie Lou Hamer, the Soledad Brothers, Garvey’s Black
Star Line - we are the oddities. This is our problem.

man is demoted to the lower animals."
my generational golden rules . . . “all that glittered was
gold,” “ God is money, money is god,” and of course
“rich folks are “better” than poor people. No,
wait, then we produced generations which have said “life
ain't nothin’ but bitches n’ money!” So get rich,
or die tryin’!”
seemed my era remains obsessed with “keeping-up with the
Jones,” starting with college - virtually all my peers
abandoned the educational industry and were headed willingly, blindly
onto the corporate plantation - marketing/accounting/advertising -
with the soulless sole-goal being to make money - these house negroes
did all they could to distance themselves from the field-niggers,
yet they had the same materialistic daydream. As we grew-up they went
into debt craving BMWs, big-ass mini-mansions, platinum bling and
titanium blang, every hi-tech gadget they could get their hands on.
now in 2916 they appear to be bewildered and dismayed by the
unbreakable glass ceilings they pretended not to see for all the
1980’s and on . . . the same anti-union, and pro-mini wages.
Honestly, at least two generations bought this cutthroat capitalism
comapny-line, they actually believed they’d be judged by
educated White folks, not “White Trash” and that in the
name of “profit” they be given a fair shake.
them pawns, useful idiots.
fairness and equality didn’t rule the land. That's why were
besieged with “entrepre-negroes“ i.e., delusional
Black folks who thought their college degree, hard work ethic and
perfect diction far-outweighed their Black skin, thick lips and broad
nose. I’m surrounded by pompous Black MBA’s who can’t
work for the 33 year old White boys who treats them like “the
help.” These are the the chumps n’ punks who bored me
with verbal essays explaining-away “why” they’re
Republicans and Libertarians.
sad, listening to Black folks on some screen or in the booth next to
me at Sunday brunch believing the White folks supporting Trump, which
is most White people in America . . . can be shamed into
abandoning Trump. They honestly believe some business dealing or
extra-marital affair will prompt an exodus of White folks from his
camp. These colored folks couldn’t be more wrong!
people are going to” stand by their White man,” even if
the Klan is standing in his corner with him. Why we don’t see
that . . . I don’t really know. Well, yes I do - we don’t
know White people because we don’t know history.
