wants to work with Black leaders to also make Black America great.
Please, Ask not what White America can do for us, but what we can
do for ourselves . . .
Congressional Black Caucus can provide King Trump with
multiple copies of all their well thought-out ideas, suggestions,
observations and solutions to make Black America healthy, wealthy,
safe, secure and wise. However between Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller
and the rest of the Knights of the Redneck Roundtable those
recommendations are going to be tossed into the “who gives a
damn Nigger” file . . . . I deeply question if we can
legislate morality and equality, especially to a segment of US
society which does not value fairness nor diversity. Perhaps we need
to look away from Dixie-fried DC and seriously ponder another path
for Black America.
insist we need a plan in the face of a man, representing the White
Establishment which has declared war on Black people. I’m
going to be brutally blunt; Trump’s White America doesn't give
a damn about you and me. Trump’s old America, which is
populated with most of the White people in America
has concluded American slavery was a “positive” rather
than a “negative” for Black folk. Additionally this
segment of US society wholeheartedly believes the White race is an
endangered species, and delusionally see themselves as victims
of reverse racism and discrimination in their own country.
a gesture of approval and support for Trump, this last month of
January the Republican National Committee received record
breaking donations from the rank n’ file, nearly $20 million,
signaling they like and approve of Trump’s war on Americans of
color. The administration is rounding-up Mexicans and Muslims as
Steve Bannon’s forces are attacking Jewish folk while General
J. Beauregard Sessions prepares the Confederate Gestapo forces to
“stop n” frisk” we gorillas in the mist.
I said, don’t ask a damn thing of these so-called real
Americans, but rather ask ourselves what can we do to confront the
clear and present danger Trump’s coup d'etat represents.
What can we do to better our lives, and the lives of our children and
grandchildren? I’ve repeatedly advocated a “mass”
exodus of Black folks to the four-corners of the globe, Marcus
Garvey, Paul Robeson, Josephine Baker and WEB DuBois weren’t
wrong. But it appears Black folks ain’t going nowhere. Instead
here we stand at the mercy of mad White men.
can Black folks do to create viable lines of defense against a
multi-front attack? Education, health care, Jobs and Law enforcement
- Black people will be targeted on every societal battlefield.
Marginalized, slighted, discriminated against, excluded
and punished in all endeavors at all levels. And the only
thing forbidding actual physical genocide is a free press, and
lest we forget they’re the eye’s n’ ears of the
globe's population, . . . and the free press is the target of
Lord Trump and his minions everyday. When President Bannon silences
the press, Black folks need to start worrying about our collective
well being. Black America needs an all encompassing cohesive effort
to address the ills and woes Black folks endure.
simply can’t “make this up as we go along.”
desperately require a collection of great thinkers - not politicians,
preachers, lawyers or activist, but rather “deep n’
heavy” thinkers from credentialed scientist to certified
dreamers to convene and strategize over “how-to” navigate
these hostile US waters; how to bring-to life the Great Black
American Empire. Internally we are crumbling under the weight of
being poor and Black in an elitist and racist America. Many of our
traditional neighborhoods have regressed to valueless shooting
galleries, where Bloods, Crips and Gangster Disciples
are killing each other for the crumbs off Trump’s gold-plated
table. And of course we’re under attack from historical,
traditional external forces - we are the enemy of White America -
from the local police to bankers, real-estate brokers, doctors,
engineers, teachers, Militias and vigilantes.
are Black America’s options? What can we do to address our

to construct a “plan” for Black America to survive and
hopefully have our offspring thrive in the decades to come. I appeal
to the National Think Tank for African American Progress, the
Center for American Progress, the NDN and their peers
to hand craft a plan to “save” Black America.
people without a plan are doomed.
are a number of options we should explore; but before the sun sets
we’d better appeal-to the United Nations, just as
Malcolm X was attempting to do at the time of his murder 50 odd years
ago. We need the global body to look into our peculiar African
American predicament and to keep a watchful eye on our well-being. If
you look up one day and our numbers go from 43 million or so down to
3 - Ben Carson, Uncle Clarence Thomas and Omarosa well then
something's gone horribly wrong for Afro-Americans.
we fear to what depths the Trump administration is capable of going.
Hear me, the only thing halting Trump’s Storm troopers from
marching us off to internment camps, ovens and gas chambers is . . .
it looks bad published via a free press. But, if no one
witnesses Lady Liberty being ganged-raped - who’s to say?
we fear genocide, and why shouldn’t we?
