it looks, walks n’ talks like a half-mad vengeful Klansman
. . . forgive me, but I’m going to believe my lying eyes n’
ears - and brand it, i.e., Donald Trump, a Klansman. The
illegitimate Presidency of Donald Trump is the beginning of the end
of these once alleged-to-be “United” States of America.
Congressman John Lewis declared; “I don’t see Trump as an
legitimate President. I cannot be at home with something that is
wrong.” Nor can I.
the sky is falling’. And next week on January 20th, high noon .

upon a time, say 1976, when this fragmented nation, still reeling
from the turbulent 60’s elected a decent man to the White
House, peanut farmer Jimmy Carter - I’d argue America had a
chance, granted a slim-ass, outside chance, but a chance nonetheless,
to live-up to it’s hollow and shallow creed “all men are
created equal.” But come 1980 and the election of Ronnie “666”
Ray-gun it’d become crystal clear White America wasn’t
about to be going peacefully and quietly into the future. No, instead
since then they’ve resisted what the civilized world’s
conceded is “progress,” yet instead they’ve
passively, but aggressively “dug-in,” holding the red
lines of segregation one-way or another. Mainstream caucasians, of
all persuasions have committed-to “White Flight” and
“re-gentrification” as the tools to avoid racial
integration - which would logically lead-to, oh my god - liberty,
equality and the pursuit of happiness by all.
followed by the Bush/Clinton presidencies all but guaranteed America
would remain at least two or three nations within one decadent
empire; separate and unequal in every element and factor which
matters. A multi-tiered land where White folks seem highly content
with building more prisons than pre-schools and creating a “school
to private, for-profit prison pipeline.” They seemed content
with quality medical care only affordable for the wealthy. The Wasp
investor class content exporting breadwinner blue-collar jobs. And
Hillary seemed, in 2008, content to continue with the highly
along came Obama.
day-one, the good-natured placid, amiable, high-brow thinker,
President Obama simply refused to go verbal blow for verbal blow,
refused to exchange “your mommas so ugly” insults. He
wouldn't ”get down with the get down,” wade-off into the
pool of mud that is Washington politics and trade blows with the
likes of Senator Mitch McConnell and all the good ol’ boys,
even though, even though I say we knew they’d promptly
taken a sworn oath to “pitch a bitch” for the entire
4-year ride. A neo-confederate-spirited effort to do all they could
do to deter, defame, deride, hinder and hamper every move, every
word, every deed this particular President put forward. Why? Not
because he was a Democrat, he wasn’t the first, nor
because he was from Illinois, he wasn’t the first President
from that great state - no he was marked from “jumpstreet”
because of the color of his skin. Weighed, measured n’ pounded
because of the color of his skin, nothing to do with or based-upon
the content of his character, ideals or objectives.
to a Black man running
the show revealed what many of us already knew; there’s
obviously still a deeply entrenched, coast-to-coast, monolithic,
fossilized cultural mentality which screams “White privilege
and dominance will be maintained by any means required!”
so we end-up right here n’ now with a conman, a hustler
election underlines the sentiment; “If White folks had to dance
with the flame-haired devil himself. . . “ their unreasoned
racism, classism and sexism would allow them to Square Dance all
night long. A coalition of all kinds of White folks has just given
permission for “South to rise” and, what we’re
finding out - even
treason will be dismissed - in order to make America White again.
Here in 2017 more Republicans like, identify and relate-to Russian
Emperor Vladimir Putin than they do a outgoing Black President and
the rainbow coalition which facilitated his two term presidency.

here, dig this heavy, heavy observation; When somebody tells you
who they are - believe them. Why don’t we believe who n’
what King Trump keeps telling and showing us he is?
the eve of Donald J. Trump’s illegitimate inauguration over
half of this nation’s population believes he’ll be in the
mirror mouthing the words he really wants to declare to the world "I
do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the
office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my
ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United
States, except in the case of the Niggers, Nigger lovers, Spics,
Chinks, Injunes and raghead Sand Niggers . . . I will, in the end -
make America White again. “
on the eve of Trump’s illegitimate reign, this may be, for a
number of starving wordsmiths like myself, who try to stir the
souls of Black folk, we, our editors and publication creators may
be silenced and punished for telling’ it like it really is,
who knows? True we may be low on the hit list, nevertheless . . . we
are at the mercy of Trump and his brown-nosing brownshirts.
as simple as it seems - Trump is what he appears to undeniably be,
a by-product of White hatred, anger, resentment, envy and false
illusions of an superior grandiose All-American White culture. And
obviously the President-elect has yet to disavow those who endorsed
him, such as the Klan, the Nazis and yes Vladdy the Communist, thus
making him deliberately, strategically “guilty by association.”
So yes, if it looks, walks n’ talks like an
illegit racist, sexist, elitist xenophobic warhawk, then I ’d
argue it is.
your Harriet Tubman instincts, those “spider-senses”
have kept our people alive in an malicious and unfriendly land, which
is unquestionably about to get more hostile.
