Concentration Camps
on the
Rio Grande
Rejection of Reparations


"Mitch McConnell has the inhumane balls, the detached
arrogance to, in essence to tell black folk: 'hey look, we
passed some laws, we let you have a Black President even . . .
so get over it, we ain’t giving you gangsters, thugs, hustlers,
tramps . . . etc, etc., etc., a damn dime."

Even with For-Profit “Concentration” camps down on the Rio Grande, where brown-skinned children are being held captive in unsanitary conditions, for extended periods of time, still most of White America is able to turn a blind-eye and cold-shoulder to these type atrocities they’ve made happen by voting-for and supporting a despicable wanna-be dictator like Donald Trump. This type treatment is deliberate, intentional and well-calculated - designed to send the message “we struggle with the notion “you brown people” are actually people.

The same “rotten to the core” base of the Republican Party “rolls their eyes” and quickly dismisses any talk of “reparations” for Blacks Americans, leaving me to openly ponder “what more do we people-of-color have to witness to come to the conclusion these heartless mo-fo’s are cra-cra?”

Do we not grasp the preschool simplicity of this complex issue called American race relations? Is it not undeniably obvious Trump’s troops are drunk with ill-gotten power, and evidently quite-willing to do just about anything their little paranoia and greed driven minds can think of to drag this nation back to 1957?

Black America . . . be afraid, be very afraid!

Hear me, hear me hear me! Please, for the sake of nation within an empire - the Black American, I ask that you heed my words, and no, not just mine, but those of Maya Angelou: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time!”

See, it’s not so much that King Trump is behaving as a well-dressed barbarian, it’s the chilling reality that Confederate Senator Mitch McConnell and the millions of good ol” boys he speaks for and represents openly and unequivocally have this con-man’s spineless back. From Alaska to Nebraska, Fargo to Key Largo, Boston to Austin - the 21st Century Neo-Confederacy is alive and it isn't merely a geographical location, but rather it’s a deep, deep . . . deep seeded neanderthal racist, sexist and elitist mindset maintained by most White males in America.

That’s just the fact Jack, the stone cold fact, Jack.

Establishing “Concentration” camps for millions of Black, Brown , red and yellow folks whom this tyrannical despot deems are his sworn enemies is not some hypothetical reach, no instead its a looming possibility . . . and a lot of us know this. If you think this President, and his national, coast-to-coast cult won't separate you from your family, place your children in camps, then I’ve got some prime real estate on the San Andreas Fault to sell to your naive asses.

Think about it, Mitch McConnell has the inhumane balls, the detached arrogance to, in essence to tell black folk: “hey look, we passed some laws, we let you have a Black President even . . . so get over it, we ain’t giving you gangsters, thugs, hustlers, tramps . . . etc, etc., etc., a damn dime. We let you stay here, you could be, should be back-in deepest darkest Africa, chasing your dinner, your dinner chasing you . . . !” Yes, hell yes! That’s how Trump, Mitch and all the rest of the Trumpian American Nazi cult see it. And if you think they don’t . . . you aint heeding Maya Angelou words. . .

This potential backyard brawl/back alley knife fight which is “Reparations” - represents the legal act of financially compensating the descendants of US slaves and is a symbolic, iconic argument, significantly deeper than an admittance of wrongdoing and a cash payout - and white America won’t do it. I don’t care how you imaginatively construct a payback to Black Americans: tax breaks or refunds, education allotments, waived tuition n’ fees - whatever is drawn-up will be opposed because it’s an admission of guilt and it gives black folks some perceived perk or upmanship which is not really warranted in the delusional world most white folks dwell in..

Mitch, ain't that a bitch!

You can’t be serious, you gotta come with a little more substance and depth than this: One can’t ignore colionial slavery’s and horrific aftermath - it’s insidious - Black codes, Jim Crow, Sundown laws , Seperate n’ unequal everything wj=hich was relevant and matterd. Societal roadblocks and landmines in all fields and endeavors of life - Job discrimanation, real estate Redlining, educational exclusion a national policy of police brutality . . . and this was all countered and rectified with being able to sit next to white folks in class, in the restroom and on the bus . . . Mitch, ain't that a bitch!

Nevertheless he’s dead serious . . . .

Look-a-here . . . Black America stands on the verge of an epic battle for the continuance of our status as “humans.” The progress so far has been paid for with the last 400 years plus of black blood, sweat and tears, and if at this crucial moment we fail to confront, combat and defeat this white backlash - which really does want to relegate us to the back rows of an airplane, unable to stay at the Holiday Inn, unable to eat at Chili's, unable to attend this university or seek medical attention at that hospital . . . if we don’t get up off our asses and exhibit “Black Power” then I shutter to envision the US of A, my children and grandchildren will have to survive and endure in.

That’s it the gravity of the situation translates into the Afro and Latino voters who don’t vote . . . you people will be written into the annals of time as punk ass losers, dumb asses who couldn’t hear the bell tolling. And for those Americans of color who now in 2020 vote for this monster . . . my God, there'll be no cave, no coffin corner you mofo’s can hide in, seriously. It will be your backing and support which will propels this bigoted, misogynist SOB back into a global seat of power where only the devil himself knows what Trump, Putin and the boys have in mind for a world they want to do nothing to or for but to loot it, to economically sodomize the world.
