Let's be honest, nobody, and I do mean nobody honestly questions if America is racist…only White folks, nobody! Only White folks think Elvis was King, not James Brown, Only White folks think Donny Osmond was as talented as Micheal Jackson, and only White folks think their racist ways have lessened, it's not as bad as it was, they're not as openly hateful as their grandparents were … so… what? Shut up n' stop your belly-aching and be grateful.

Is it really ‘progress’ when a cannibal uses a knife and fork?”

Someone’s going to have to explain to me how a bloody “empire” such as America can be in doubt, question and deny being branded a racist country. There’s no question about it, America is as racist as the day is long. The “Founding Fathers crafted a land of freedom… where only White men were free. The nation fought an internal civil war because millions upon millions upon millions of White folks thought Blacks were born to be their slaves.

America is a racist nation, built on racial hatred, arguing otherwise is insane.

Just so we’re all on the same page: Stealing the very land we all stand upon from the indigenous natives... was a hate crime, as was the genocide waged upon them, not to forget imprisoning them on desolate Reservations. " Stealing, kidnapping and enslaving Black people for centuries...was a hate crime. Stealing/strong-arming land away from indigenous Mexicans ...was a hate crime. Interning Japanese citizens during WWII was a hate crime. It seems White America has a level of blind hatred that can't be denied, can't be wished away.

White America has, dig this, selective historical amnesia… they seem to forget, dismiss and marginalize all the twisted and demented acts they’ve committed, and somehow they want us, you and I to forget, the victims o their racist hatred to dismiss and marginalize all the twisted and demented acts they’ve willingly committed…upon us. It’s insulting if nothing else.

White man, please!!!

American Apartheid” - this land’s unofficial “separate and unequal in all matters which matter way of life” is without question racist. The obvious police brutality which runs rampant across the land is indicative and reflective of the "White racism" embedded in this nation. The real estate/housing industry is racist. The financial'/banking industry is racist. The health care system leaves Americans of color underserved, can't get an aspirin because some doctor thinks we're faking the pain to get drugs... The US educational system undeniably fails Black and Latino kids daily because it's laced with gutter-low expectations due to White racism and indifference. Wall Street is racist. Main Street USA is racist. Hollywood and Broadway are racist. NASA is racist.

Great White Dope Donald Trump and his uneven Presidential response to this infamous, once-a-century Pandemic was skin color-based, and reflected the racist attitude of his unquestionably bigoted base.

Great White Hope sportsman Tim Tebow's nine lives reflect the White privilege which still today rules the sports world, while Colin Kaepernick's obvious and undeniable "Black-balling" by the NFL plantation owners illustrates the racism which runs deep in America's national pastimes – sports.

The daily incidents of White folks snapping,”going-off,” ballistic on Black folks because we don't "know our place" and behave "uppity" - not sufficiently sucking up and kissing their behinds in some situation or interaction. I'd suggest these daily eruptions hearken back to the good ol” days when they could demand our “papers,” demand to know why we’re on their side of town after sundown, demand we step-off the sidewalk when they approach, look down, never making eye contact, and greet them as if they're trailer park royalty. Please think about it – that is America, the day-to-day environment they created, hand-made and maintained. That’s the preferred way of life most White folks loved, embraced and long to return to.

C'mon man, do you think I'm lying? Do you think I'm exaggerating? No! Rank n' file White Americans want your Black butt in the back of the plane – last 6 rows, a separate restroom for the "Darkies." I just can't phantom, in these polarized and flammable times we're living in, how Black folks could perceive the hostile situation as anything else.

This nation only loosened the noose around our collective necks because they felt the pressure of a colorized world watching their hypocrisy and barbarity on display. Not because they realized the savagery of their deeds or because they felt sorry for us, realized we were as human as they are. Please.

This nation was always racist, it was racist when my momma n' daddy was growing up in the 1950s, it was racist when I was growing up in the 1970s and it's still racist today. Electing Barack Obama President was abnormal, exceptional, extraordinary and totally out of character for White America, and wait… note only 43% of White folks voted for Obama. That's not even half. So to pretend that mainstream White America isn’t racist, sexist and elitist is to make believe Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny are real.

The endless "White Flight" fuels the reckless greed-driven growth of this nation while undermining any attempts of living together in peace and harmony. They don't want your black behind as their neighbors, classmates, roommates, in-laws, or as their heart doctor or kids science teacher. Black folks are generally and widely regarded as guilty and/or incompetent until we "prove" otherwise.

Mainstream WASP America has created a game of “Survival of the fittest” and please note, white America got so very “fit” with the land, blood, sweat and tears of other people, people they’ve put through hell – there’s no denying that fact.
