Live by the Gun
Die by the Gun


"Weapon manufacturers are never, ever happy
nor content with their sales and profits,
and of course this nation’s 'investor class'
demands always rising/never-ending profits."

As a starving wordsmith I pound-out this poignant point each and every time the cocktail conversation stops upon “mass murders” and gun safety; you’ll never take-away White people's guns, for those guns are, in the well-earned paranoid minds of White America, the only thing which can protect, if not save them from the clutches of black and Latino people. It’s no more complicated than that.

Now, unquestionably apart of the answer as-to “why” there’s the proliferation of guns across the land is weapon manufacturers are never, ever happy nor content with their sales and profits, and of course this nation’s “investor class” demands always rising/never-ending profits. Why do you think this nation is always involved in wars and conflicts all around the globe? Wall Street doesn't give-a-damn about spreading little “d” democracy, hell, American aristocrats love installing a middle-man hand-puppet who’ll allow their big- pimping and extreme exploitation of his people and their national resources . . . .

No, America is the world’s gun-runner.

However, at the end of the day it’s the internal fear that European-Americans can’t shake, that at some point blacks and other Americans-of-color realize that they’re the victims of Plymouth Rock landing atop them. We realize that Europe’s idea of Manifest Destiny, i.e., the world, and all its riches somehow intrinsically belong to white people is why the world is so “unequal” and divided. We realize we’re the victims of “colonialism.” We realize America is an empire founded, crafted and maintained by the gun. Thus, logically,‘ White men fear that at some point, some mundane, pedestrian event will occur, like Rodney King, OJ or Ferguson Missouri . . . and the little people’s response will be “the big payback.”

America isn’t a melting pot, it’s an ol’ fashion frying-pan and Trump is like fat, greasy bacon grease . . . .

Of course white America believes virtually all Americans of color own a gun - just to survive in the urban jungle, that we’re, one n’ all very angry, envious and hostile towards ”undeserving” white folks. We’re all “born fighters” and “Born killers.” And, don’t forget - Black men have a “jones,” an uncontrollable “thirst/lust” for Snow White” . . . and interestingly enough . . . white women have an oncontrollable desire to “experience” real sex” with Black men. In response to this very real primal threat, the thought is - every white man should have the option to buy as many guns and ammo as he can carry.

The fear is so great, that mentally and emotionally deranged, woman-beaters, killers, rapists can still handle a gun and help fight-off the savage Niggers, Spics, Chinks n’ Injunes . . . I’m sorry, but that's just Trump’s truth, that's how Trump’s white America sees it. Just spend the next few days listening to AM hate radio and it will be spelled-out for you. Talk radio is a never-ending, around the clock, coast-to-coast White Citizens Council meeting, and if you tune-in you’ll hear the paranoia and blind-hatred flowing and you’ll hear folks admit the guns are for black and brown people.

This is 4th grade level stuff baby: White America feared the shotgun-welding Black Panthers in 1966, so Ronnie “666” Ray-Gun demanded gun control, but by the time Bill Clinton is in the White House, white folks decide they need as many guns as possible because the “Nigger-lover” President will, like in Waco Texas, unleash the US army and the blue-helmeted UN forces down upon “real Americans.”

Please watch Hollywood’s “Red Dawn” it explains it all.

When Obama painted the White House black . . . White America freaked-out because instead of a “Nigger lover,” they had an actual “Nigger” in-charge and they just knew he was seeking restitution, reparations and revenge. So over the last decade we’ve seen Rednecks, hillbillies and good ol” boys with their own “personal” tanks and bazookas. Anti-aircraft gun turrets mounted on their houses . . . all in fear of ”The Niggers are coming’!!!”

Trump coming-to-power is the embodiment of white folks “ making a deal with the devil . . .” so-as- to keep their privilege via their guns.

The guns white folks won’t relinquish are for you and me, for all folks-of-color who’re coming to eat them. Women, children . . . scores of “innocents” can die in events like school or movie massacres and it won’t slow nor halt the white man’s love affair with guns.

Few of them will be blunt and honest enough to admit that . . . but it’s the burning bush truth.
