Racial and Cultural
“Irreconcilable Differences"
Will Sabotage 21st Century America


"Why can’t we ship, pay for, offer a vast array of
financial/educational incentives to leave - to the
most disgruntled and combustible white folks, the
'Archie Bunker' clones to Australia, Poland, Eastern
bloc countries, . . . Russia, where they might feel
more comfortable in a land relatively
devoid of black and brown people?

Donald Trump isn’t the real problem, he’s a manifestation of the problem. The problem is most, if not the vast majority of white men can’t, won’t, don’t give a flyin’ pluck about “diversity,” “equality” and “inclusion.” No, instead they honestly seem-to refuse-to “go-along to get along” with anyone - even “their” women. They can’t work and play nicely with the rest of this nation’s inhabitants. Yes, it’s alarming as hell Emperor Trump has installed Tom Bolton as Secretary of State, and Bolton has instantly installed his own puppet as Homeland Security Secretary. Call me “cra-cra” but it sure smells and looks like a slow-motion coup. Former Secretary of State Madeline Albright’s on my screen warning Americans of “fascism” looming on the horizon . . . we talkin’ bout ovens, gas chambers . . . and lynchings of course.

The Ku Klux Klan is running America . . . again!

The iconic WEB Dubois, over a century ago noted that the pressing, ever-burning and highly combustible issue of the 20the century would be race relations: in 1903 DuBois wrote "the problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color line." America, an empire internally plagued with racial and cultural “irreconcilable differences” which I contend, after roughly 50 years of analyzation and examination is a problematic situation which can’t be fixed, at least not in our children or grandchildren’s life times. Whether you can get to this - or not, we’re in the middle of a “cold” civil war, which could flare-up, heat-up and burst into flames all across the land. When where or who or what sets it off - who's to say. What’s for sure is King Trump will overreact.

Brace yourself for the dogs and fire hoses. As well as the bullets.

Yes, the next century or so is going to find these fictitiously labeled “United” States of America being plagued, jinxed, damned, for it’s twisted past.

Might America be cursed? Cursed with the blood of Nat Turner, Crazy Horse, Cesar Chavez, four little black girls from Birmingham Alabama, Japenese children who died in FDR’s Internment camps during WWII - gee there’s just so many skeletons in Uncle Sam’s attic, who’s to say. When the chicks come home to get down, they come home to get down. What’s guaranteed is widespread racial disharmony which will foster a national, coast-to-coast climate-of hostility, conflict, disunity if not outright tribal feuding. Blood in the streets . . . along with tanks, bazooka and Tiki-Torch welding half-mad white men hell-bent on turning-back the hands of time to the good ol days of yesteryear, say circa 1955 when white men had absolute, audacious indisputable power.

Please, allow me to be both sharp and blunt: America, the different ”tribes” which constitute this patchwork country . . . we’re not on the same page. We’re not even on the same chapter . . . hell, we aren't even reading from the same book. Half of us see Columbus and the founding fathers as pimps - brutal pimps, while White America deems them heroes to be placed upon a pedestal.

What we got here . . . is a failure to communicate!

White America simple-mindedly sees itself as the “good guy,” the “hero,” ”Super-whiteman” the “winner”and therefore “head man in charge.” This empire of immigrants, built upon stolen land belongs solely if not only to white men, have them tell it. AM hate radio tells us they’re far-too arrogant, indifferent and detached to honestly give-a-damn about recognizing the roles and contributions of everybody, they’re beyond harboring any real empathy for the plight of humanity beyond their own kind.

We, the unwashed masses, the millions of assorted “Americans of color” who make-up the other America, honestly the majority . . . well, we beg-to-differ with that moonshine and Valium induced “wet” fairytale.

The two differing, if not “at war” cultural perspectives will never come together, compromise and sing “we are the world”: the only, only . . . only logical answer to save our children’s 2050 world is to break-up this forced marriage, break-up the country, go to our separate corners or states, or . . . homelands.

Once again I put on the world-wide web’s table - the government ought craft an “express” exit plan for people, of all colors who don’t want to mix n’ mingle? But specifically and particularly White folks because they’re obviously millions upon millions, upon millions of white folks who don’t desire to live in a culturally diverse America.

Now I’m fo’-real here - let’s give white people, at least what some white people, what they want - to be separated and far, far - far removed from people of color. Why can’t we ship, pay for, offer a vast array of financial/educational incentives to leave - to the most disgruntled and combustible white folks, the “Archie Bunker” clones to Australia, Poland, Eastern bloc countries, . . . Russia, where they might feel more comfortable in a land relatively devoid of black and brown people?

If they pay me I’ll move to Central America, and I ain’t alone.

As we see, “race” trumps politics and religion with Trump’s America - they’ve made a “deal with a lyin n’ cheatin’ devil and Putin.

I’m serious, it’s the only way to release some of the intense and immense pressure building. Look 1865 Confederated minded white people are willing to “burn baby burn” whole parts of cites, burn down whole town's, go to war against California, imprison millions . . . perhaps even gas millions if it helps to “take back America” and “make it white again.”
