Rednecks are coming! The Rednecks are coming! The Rednecks are here!
my God! Might it be true King Trump really is amassing an army of
half-mad cops, soldiers, Bikers and Construction workers on his side,
ready to do . . . god knows what to appease and defend him?
Yes he is amassing an army of gun-toting gung-ho white people who
despise Black, Brown, Red abd yellow Americans. Please note, I’m
referring-to Americans of color, those of us whose dead ancestors
built this empire with their land, blood, sweat and tears, over 400
years. We’ve got what’s defined as ‘earned
equality” in this decadent empire.
really wanted to pound-out a 1000 words or so on, can you believe it,
the “topic” of “Reparations.” I believe,
thanks to Congresswoman Kamelah Harris and Senator Elizabeth Warren,
with their endorsement of this reimbursing, or perhaps compensating,
or simply “squaring” and settling-up for fu*king, and I
mean that in virtually every aspect of the term, black folks - the
long, long, long overdue payment of ‘40-acres and a mule”
is a legitimate, relevant and achievable political if not economical
concept. Look, black folks - politicians, preachers, barbers and
teachers have been talking-about the “big payback” all my
caramel life, and that’s all it’s been is talk - for
black folks don’t have the type of influence, impact nor clout
- e.g., power, “Black Power” within US society to just
“make-it happen”. Nonetheless the issue is on the
big-picnic table this summer. Please grasp the complexity of the
moment: -the “Right,” Trump’s troops want to use
the topic to fuel the anger and hostility which is oozing, dripping
out of their ears, pockets and asses.
America’s hate is great, make no mistake. It’s far, far
deeper than the notion of “they merely don’t like us,”
no its blind, irrational, unfounded hate. Apparently tens of millions
unjustifiably hate you and I, because we’re not “white”
like them. It’s that 7th-grade simple. And if you question my
conclusion then I’d beg you to pick up any middle school
textbook, spend the weekend going through it, and then come back to
me and breakdown the tall-tale that is America, for it is but a
“simple” story of strongarm conquest, enslavement,
exploitation and degradation.
any logical and idealistic idea like “reparations” for
the descendants of black slaves is an idea, a blueprint which much of
white America would see as nothing more than unwarranted hand-out.
Gee, golly gee willikers - who can’t see that would send not
hundreds or thousands but rather millions of Trump’s
stormtroopers into the streets to protest the giving away of their
“hard-earned” dollars to whom they deem are undeserving,
lazy, dumb black folks.
has the potential to ignite America’s cold civil war . . .
and, according to Lord Trump, he’s already amassed an informal
army of cops, soldiers, bikers, construction workers - as he puts it
“tough” folks who will not allow the “will”
of “real” Americans, i.e., white folks to not
reign,supreme across the land.
will instead maintain his seat at the crown . . . by any means
necessary. Ain’t that a predictable bitch?
where we are. The President of these barely United States of America
is threatening to unleash the bloodthirsty Minutemen and women of the
“Invisible Empire” upon Americans of color . . . and I
flippin’ guarantee you the vast majority of Black and Brown
folks either didn’t hear about this, or they’re
dismissing it as what Trump claims White Nationalism/supremacy is -
“a small group of people who have very very very serious
problems” whose numbers are small! Trust me, there are millions
of Blacks and Latinos who parrot this camouflage Confederate
gibberish - useful, delusional pawns which white folks can maneuver
around the board of life by dangling a few Benjamins.
sellout negro and Hispanic has a price . . . and I pray a place.
understand I’m a starving wordsmith, who molds and shapes my
work around a handful of themes, I don’t roll with the flow,
furthermore I believe in my convictions, and at the end of the day
and my life - you can convict me of my beliefs: When they come
a-knocking at the door I’m gonna tell em I’m a proud-ass
Democratic Socialist who believes in FDR’s notion of
“municipal socialism” e.g., water, power, food,
medicine, education and basic transportation - the bare necessities
of life, in what is deemed the most advanced form of civilization
ever known to humankind -America, these basic elements of freedom and
security ought not be pimped, exploited and driven by the vastly
snow white “investor class’s” unquenchable thirst
for profits . . I’m not one who believes in runaway unbridled,
unrestrained, unchecked, unregulated laissez-faire capitalism where
elitist and small “a” “aristocrats” dictate
the economic well-being and prosperity of this country at the
expenses of all the little people.
am an Afro-American, whose lineage labored like millions of others to
lay the foundation of this empire, my grandpappy's were Black
Doughboys in WWI, built Submarines in WWII, my pops was an Army
MP at Redstone Arsenal where they constructed NASA rockets headed to
the stars. My wife’s Aunt Imogene was a colored Rosey
Riviter in Portland during WWII . . . I’m just saying we
black folks have earned a piece of the American pie . . . and despite
these obvious, undeniable contributions, when t nation had its
proverbial back against the wall - we stepped-up, annie-up like real
men and women and gave it our all . . and now you mofos - cops,
fireman, constructions workers . . . now you want to wage a
coast-to-coast race war, so you can take back your country and make
it klan sheet white again . . .
me if I’m shocked, suprised or in a “state of denial”
- hell no I’m not. Nor are millions of other Black and brown
folks - we “progressive-minded” non-conformist who aren't
obsessed with Benzes and 700 thread bed sheets” saw this
backlash of hatred coming way, way . . way back in 1980 with Ronnie
“666” Ray-Gun. We knew back then white men would not be
able to, nor, have any inclination-to mix and mingle with the
unwashed masses - we just couldn’t convince enough folks so
that we could have confronted this tidal-wave of intolerance decades
ago - instead we were fixated on “going along to get alone”
and we abandoned any notions of Black Nationalism and Black Power, as
we can see it will be to our detriment and that of our children.
