We Don't Know White People
Very Well, Do We?


"Trump and Vice President Mike Pence
tactically refused to distance themselves
from the robed good ol’ boys and that
loyalty endeared them to the . . . millions
and millions . . . and millions of  Rednecks
and Crackers tired of hiding in plain sight."

What time is it?!

Over the next 175 days, commencing circa “right now” on through to inauguration day and beyond - the initial 100 day run where Presidents and dictators try to set a tone, if the events during this time frame fail to awake Black and Tan folks.I don’t know what will. Because what we’re all about to witness is a repeating of history. The North Carolina KKK is planning “victory” parades . . . .

Mark Twain said “history doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme.”

We Black folks are big, very, very big on rhyming, nevertheless tragically my fellow Americans of color couldn’t hear the hate - they misjudged the extreme amount of contempt and malice White people have for . . . everybody. My slightly educated Black and Brown peers underestimated how far White folks have calculated “their” nation has gone in the wrong direction, with the gains of the 1960’s civil rights era and its 2008 culmination - President Obama. We Black n’ Tan people also low-balled how far White men and women were willing to go to - anointing Trump, in order to “take-back” their America.

We don’t know White folks very well, do we?

Trump's election isn't based on the failure of “Obama-nomics” or political corruption in DC, Trump’s ascension is not “despite” the bromance with BreitBart's Steven Bannon (Glenn Beck branded him a terrifying man”) and the man-luv he’s gotten from the OG Klan and Nazis. . . but rather because of it. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence tactically refused to distance themselves from the robed good ol’ boys and that loyalty endeared them to the . . . millions and millions . . . and millions of Rednecks and Crackers tired of hiding in plain sight.

But wait, let’s yet another stolen election in its proper perspective; The hypocrisy of White America is never more evident when you consider the “pussy” grapper, Trump, garnered more of the white evangelical vote, got more support from the bible thumpers n’ holy rollers than Mitt the millionaire Mormon and GI Joe POW hero Senator John Glenn . . how do you explain that? How do you rationalize away how a man who conflicted and contradicted all of Pence's oppressive 21st century anal-retentive Puritan beliefs was backed so strongly by all these White folks who have heavenly morals and values they allegedly held all-so dear?

Instead the vast overwhelming majority of White America rejected the notion of “TEAM USA, together everyone accomplishes more, or “all for one, one for all.”

White America, as an almost monolithic group - voted for a more dangerous United States, and because of that . . . the fate of the empire is at stake.

The rubber will meet the road on January 20th, inaugural night, after Trump is sworn-in, and with Rush, Hannity, Bannon and the half-mad war-hungry generals in his ear advocating to release the hounds on the Americans of color out protesting in the streets. And they will, gleefully, with bright smiles on their faces give the orders to let the bullets fly. Have no doubt these natural born bullies will lash back, under the guise of “law n’ order” . . . and they’ll unleash hell . . . and after that I predict “all hell will break loose” and some form of martial law will be declared coast-to-coast, the internment camps will be filled and Black Codes will be reintroduced; “out of town by sundown” laws, hotel's/restaurant and assorted other businesses will refuse to serve Americans of color. Recall Rand paul's philosophical attack on the premise of the civil rights era - Uncle Sam can’t force White folks to serve Black folks at their places of business.

Who’s responsible for bringing this doomsday event about? Aging Southern Black folks - Negro-sauruses who voted for HRC instead of Bernie and put us in this predicament in the first place! Along with spineless, yellow-bellied, lily-livered White women who blindly-backed Trump. Toss in those Hispanics who think they’re White . . . and the Democratic Party which facilitated this political hoodwinking.

Already Trump has a supposed “mandate” - a decree. How? Why? Well because based-on millions of Illegal immigrants having voted - have Rush and the Rednecks tell it. US History 101 tells me, if delusioned White people believe they’re re on a mission from God to make America White again, by any diabolical means deemed necessary, if this is the case . . we are all in trouble, deep, serious double-trouble. And I’m not trying to be a fear monger, I’m simply considering what’s possible, what's been done before. Am I to believe White folks have progressed - WASP culture has had a reformation? Please don’t piss down my back, n’ then try to tell em it’s raining, right?!

Let’s talk “square-business” - what's about to happen to Americans of color? What plot is being planned to forever put us back in our proper, rightful 3rd-tier subordinate, inherently inferior places? We’re at a point-in-time slightly similar to the end of post-civil war Reconstruction; Reconstruction failed and the aftermath was devastating for Black America. Obama’s mild efforts to reconstruct America are about to be dismantled and torched, burned to the ground. And while they’re at it Trump’s stormtroopers are about to attack MLK’s Dream, LBJ’s Great Society and FDR’s New Deal - they’re drunk with power and they seek vengeance.

Yes,” hell yes I said it - they seek vengeance, not righteousness but vengeance - punishment, payback, get back - revenge. We, this nation’s designated oddballs and outcast almost “stole” their country from them. Most White people apparently must believe the Progressives, the negro luving tree-hugging Liberals went far too-far and almost gave-away their White privilege, control and authoritative power.

They want their country back, and sadly that’s breaking news to millions of Black folks who are asleep at the wheel.
