White Flight
On a Global Level


"Evidently the Redneck mentality has
gone global. Hitler's Third Reich never
died . . . it lives on in England and
Mississippi,  tell me I’m lying!"

Make America White again,” “make Great Britain White Again.” And while they’re at it angry, hostile White people will be making a few other European nations ”Whites Only” again. Are Canada, Australia and New Zealand soon to follow? Confederate Texans are talking treason again, talking “secession.”

Let’s agree what we’re witnessing is “White flight . . . on a worldwide level. America for White people. Great Britain for White people.

Apparently, obviously most White folks, globally speaking are “sick and tired” of all this “We are the world bullshit.” To most White people - it’s not a “small-small world after all” - they’d rather, they’d prefer-to ”isolate and insulate” themselves from what I’m proposing they see as the little people dirty, dumb unwashed masses, the barely civilized world wide riff-raff. To these folks the 10th century notion to construct a giant wall around their empire makes sense. They’ve mixed n’ mingled far-more than what they were prepared for, in say 1960. I don’t think White folks ever thought the sun would set on the imperialistic White man’s empire. The delusional belief was WASP privilege, dominance and influence would never honestly be questioned or dismissed as ridiculous. Call it arrogance.

Evidently the Redneck mentality has gone global. Hitler's Third Reich never died . . . it lives on in England and Mississippi, tell me I’m lying!

Now, set me straight if I’m wrong here too but White Liberals, i.e., your traditional Negro luving John Brown abolitionist integrationist is an endangered species, slowing becoming extinct.

The Liberal/Progressive Tim Wise/Elizabeth Warren wing of The Left represents but roughly a quarter to perhaps a third of the entire WASP population, the rest, apparently are Conservatives, which I contend easily translates into “hi, I’m a narrow-minded, small-minded racist, sexist, elitist who’s homophobic while I believe my God’s penis is bigger than your God’s penis . . . . “

Malcolm X was all-so correct when he noted upon the bloody assassination of JFK in 1963 “the chickens have come home to roost.” Here in America the soon to be White “minority” is preparing for a race war against a world of color.

Trump’s America is locked n’ stocked.

Why do you think the Right will not give-up their machine guns and bazookas? It’s their fear and hatred of Americans of color. Not foreigners or Martians, but rather Afro/Latino/Native/Asian Americans. This fear goes back long, long, long before Obama. It’ll be a cold ass day in hell before these well dressed barbarians give up their personal tanks. This fear and paranoia goes back to pre-Nat Turner days. White folks have felt, and dig this it’s critical - always understood that if Blacks, Indians, Mexicans had the opportunity they’d retaliate and seek a righteous retribution. Call it an eye for eye vengeance for an obvious wrong, an indisputable crime. Now “Why” we haven’t sought payback as the oppressed people - speaks to our humanity.

Regardless of our decency there’s an understanding within some corners of White America their dastardly deeds are grounds-for retribution. Raping, killing, pillaging, redlining, discrimination, brutality, glass ceilings all the well documented indiscretions more-than justify the 2x4 most people of color walk-around with attached-to their shoulders

Here’s what puzzles me - if that’s the dark, decadent past, and what with today's Republican TEA Party Conservatives opposing Confederate icons and emblems being removed, instead they want Black folks to turn their eyes from it - that type detached arrogance and denial screams to me very little growth has taken place within the souls of most White people.

Racism, all the “isms” are still alive; They’d like to keep an genocidal Indian fighter on the $20 bill, instead of a Black freedom fighter. It’s understandable and acceptable for police to play judge, jury and executioner in virtually all cases - Ferguson, Baltimore, Cleveland. In Texas it's understandable how a police officer has to manhandle a bikini clad Black teenage girls at a pool party . . . . Furthermore let’s be honest here; “the Right” had no empathy and little sympathy for gunned-down gay folks of color. You thought those deaths would prompt Ricky Bobby, Gomer, Goober n’ Jethro to put down their Anti-tank guns . . . really?

How long before the USA and all the other satellite WASP nations walk-out of the United Nations? Sarah Palin, who is White trash personified is pushing this notion with the blessing and backing of the Koch klan. As far as these elitist are concerned, the world is a ghetto.

Can we all concur either those on the political right don’t “get it,” or they simply don’t give a damn. I’m going to go with the latter. Few White folks want to be Black or Latino in the American workplace, classroom, loan office or police jail cell. They “get it,” they know how their brothers, cousins and friends treat us.

Most know how they treat us.

Visualize Trump’s first 100 days of “taking back” his country . . . and after they come for the Mexicans, they’ll be going after other folks from South of the border . . .The same awaits Central Americans and migrants from the Caribbean. You Africans and Indians better get your papers in order also. Police forces across the US will be given the thumbs-up to go back to 1957 policing methods. They’ll be a “purging” of Asians from this nation’s better universities . . . you just wait n’ watch. You’ll see an attempt to take land back from the American Indians, shut down their casinos so Trump and his good ol’ boys can expand and increase their profits.

Can I make a suggestion to Europeans and Euro-Americans? Your WASP-Catholic culture desperately needs a reformation, or at some point they’ll be “at war” with the world. Here’s what scares me; I believe between Lord Trump, Israel's grand pooh-bah Netanyahu and the USSR’s Putin they’d nuke entire cities where people of color live . . . and not skip a beat, not look back. The next nuke bomb dropped by Uncle Sam or his European cousins will be on folks of color. Please, that’s a no brainer.

See Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

I'm’ trying to stay calm, cool and collective in the face of what I clearly recognize is a storm, of epic Hollywood proportions gathering on the horizons. And right now, I’m as cool as a polar bear in a thong . . . but it ain't gonna last. Archie Bunker’s followers ‘bout to act a fool up in here. They want their countries and homelands back, and they’ll do whatever it takes to achieve it. Just look at your middle schooler’s history book if you doubt me. Columnist, Desi Cortez, was hatched in the heart of Dixie, circa 1961, at the dawning of the age of Aquarius, the by-product of four dynamic individuals, Raised in South-Central LA, the 213, at age 14 transplanted to the base of the Rockies, Denver. Still a Mile-Hi. Sat at the feet of scholars for many, many moons, emerging with a desire and direction… if not a sheep-skin. "Meandered thru life; gone a-lot places, done a-lot of things, raised a man-cub into a good, strong man, produced a beautiful baby-girl with my lover/woman/soul-mate… aired my mind on the airwaves and wrote some stuff along the way."
