Behind those Smiling faces, ….no conscience. Somebody, somebody please go get The Undisputed Truths 45’ ”Smiling Faces” and play it loud, and play it a few times - it’s more than apropos when discussing the historically dysfunctional relationship between the police and Black Americans.

Mr. Floyd’s blood-curdling cries for them to stop - fell upon deaf ears. And as I listened to Chauvin’s lawyers offer-up what can only be deemed ridiculous and trifling excuses, i.e., the gathering crowd/mob scared the arresting police, and Floyd was “high” and in horrible physical shape, so he wasn’t murdered... he simply picked an “odd” and inconvenient time to die - it became clear that they too had no shame, none, none at all. It became clear nor does the dozen deep legal team with over a million dollars at their disposal to defend Chauvin has a soul. Please understand this caveman masquerading as a policeman is regarded by, stay with me here, millions of White Americans as a hero, as a Great White Hope, a defender of and or white America - front line warrior trying to maintain that thin line between the unwashed little dirty people like you and me, and pristine victimized mainstream White America.

A hero, like the men who murdered Emmett Till, like the men who bombed the Birmingham Baptist Church in 1960 - killing 4 little girls, like 1970’s subway Vigilante Bernhard Goetz, or like Waco Texas Wack-o cult leader David Koresh. Like Oklahoma City Bomber Timothy Mcvey, like the LA Cops who beat Rodney King half to death, like Treyvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, Charleston killer Dylann Roof and the Kenosha killer Kyle Rittenhouse...each and everyone, all of them red-blooded all-American heroes... in the eyes and hearts of millions of WASP Americans.

Am I lying?

Yes, this murder underlines my relentless contention: millions upon millions of White Americans, from all walks of life sadly struggle with the noble, yet to them unbelievable idea Black people are human, as human as they are. And, if they do begrudgingly accept “yes” we are human, well then, they wrestle with the idea we are civilized and not savages barely comfortable in shoes. Yeah, that’s the question I believe they see themselves burden with,

The White man’s burden - White supremacy masked as White supremacy...

As this judicial circus continues it will become crystal clear that too many White Americans will jump-in-line supporting some contrived and pathetic company line that will attempt to rationalize, minimize and normalize via some quasi-intellectual gibberish the tortuous murder caught on video. May I say, this is all-so typical, historical, and “White” of White folks to adopt the “see/hear/speak no evil or ill” against any White man, especially if he’s obviously and undeniably the murderer of a Black man.

No America, no world...don’t believe you’re lying eyes and ears, no instead believe these transparent, hollow and shallow White folks. Are you serious? Are you serious?! Are you serious?!

I flipped to FOX News (White supremacist propaganda) on day one and two... they weren’t even covering the trail.

Let me be both sharp and blunt: If George Floyd had been White...good lord, and if Chauvin were Black… this would not even be a “case,” no debate, about it. However, since Floyd was Black and Chauvin is White, well, we have a complicated situation. No, we don’t. This case is as it appears - it was stone-cold, ice-cold Vulcan-like cold - mean, cruel, heartless, and merciless murder o a handcuffed man. The translation was an execution in the identical vein as a 1947 lynching of a Black man in Mississippi by a lynch mob of back-alley “deputized” white vigilantes or Klansmen.

Hear me: The White male power-structure wants to put Black people not simply back in the segregated hood, they don’t want to resurrect Sundown Laws, no they want us back in chains, back on plantations… and millions of them have no shame about that medieval desire, none, none at all.

Just as Darrick Chauvin is being ridiculously portrayed as a victim, at the mercy of a giant half-mad Black...animal, White America’s delusional attempts to paint themselves as victims…. How can this be? All this does is: it allows, gives them phony permission to over-react, to play the victim and thus kill George Floyd, kill Democracy in America by eradicating voting rights and restore White supremacy.

Someone enlighten me - when, over the last 400 years of American history have white men not been oppressive, exploitative, aggressive, and hostile? When have they not been racist, sexist, elitist supremacists? When? Never! Why? Because they are those who have no shame, none, none at all.
