I’m sorry, but no, I’m not a Nawleans Creole sorcerer nor a “Good book” toting (Gucci wrapped) Pentecostal “showtime” prophet...but merely an engaging contemporary agnostic Aquarian renaissance man... with a mind of his own. Having noted that, it does seem like I’m at least hustlin’ on the. side as Negrodamus, for I’ve been shining a spotlight on the rise of the Neo-Confederate 4th Reicht… i.e., Trump and his backlash resistance movement hellbent on reinstating good ol’ fashioned American Apartheid, one way...or another - from Jump Street I’ve been on it, like glitter on gold.

Oh, why can’t the blind see?!

Trump is mainstream, “Main Street” USA, White America, just as White America is Donald Trump. From Brain surgeons and astronauts to tow-truck drivers, cops, and teachers. The Lovers of Rocky, Pro-Wrestling, and the National Hockey League, while hating the NFL and NBA. Mega fans of persecuted reverse discriminated against Great White Christian Hope, Tim Tebow. The fans of NASCAR. Monster Trucks, Reruns of Married with Children, Duck Dynasty - it is this slice of the demographic apple pie which is the base of “he whose name shall not be spoken…’

Sorry but stereotypes are rooted in long-established cultural preferences and tendencies...

I understood Obama’s Black reign of socialist terror had created this delusional perception across White America that the sky was falling, biblical Pat Robertson “end of the word” type ‘Doomsday” stuff. I’ve been beating the hell out of this conga drum, right Peter G? But good god, I have been repetitive, repetitious, repeated, and routine, you bet, like clockwork, virtually every week now, for years I’ve not strayed too far from reality.

All the disdain, animosity, and hostility I’ve maintained sat right beneath their cultural surface, has surfaced. what I’ve written off, warned was on the on the horizon, as Biden said a few years ago “they want to put you back in chains” - President Biden knows his people, Black folks don’t. Far too many of us thought White America would surrender and submit to “Black Rule,” accept the inevitable diversification and power-sharing. Fools...! Instead Trump’s clan is about to, as I’ve argued, not merely turn back the hands of time, they hope to rip the clock off the wall.

I’ve meat-headedly refused to engage in the small, simple-minded naive practice of pretending Black America’s hair ain’t on fire. It is. Hear me now: Much of White America regrets taking down the “No Jews/Niggers/Spics/Chimks and Dogs” Signs. Once more, let’s roll and stroll down the BET Soul Train line one more time...

Matter of fact, they’re mighty determined to proudly rehang them… Proudly I say!

Black America cannot guilt, shame nor force White folks to live up to the high and mighty words of the US Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, and Bill Of Rights because these noble ideas and concepts of a “civilized” civilization were never really intended to apply to nonwhite people. All those pretty words are out the window today, Democracy exchanged for White Supremacy and Nationalism. They’ll take a White King over a democratically elected man or woman of the people, the little people ...the unwashed and unworthy masses - you and I. We don’t matter now count and our voices need not be heard nor heeded.

It’s that simple. No deeper nor complex. Oh, why can’t the blind see?

And today, circa 2022 they’d like to resend the ideal of Democracy, i.e., representative government, elective government, constitutional government, popular government, self-government. Government by the people is to be rescinded because check it, White people are no longer numerically or culturally dominant American society.

They today don’t want the world’s version of US History, they want the painted and tainted “White guy version,” Trump’s version of America...oh why can’t the blind see?

Columbus...the explorer, not an invader. The Alamo was all about Davey Crockett, Sam Houston, and John Wayne wanting to help those Texas settlers live free… slavery wasn’t even on the table. The Injunes were just warring among themselves, wasting all God’s country, so settlers and pioneers came in and waged slow genocide against the noble Red people, while slaughtering the Buffalo, chopping down the grandest of all the gigantic, majestic Redwood Squioiat tress...

Slavery was really an ethical, upstanding, and righteous good institution, akin to having “Foster Children” - the good decent White man was just trying to help Black folks, give our savage lives meaning and purpose, put our lazy black behinds to work...

It’s just so flippin’ ridiculous.

The vast majority of White Americans, don’t sleep on that reality, and they wish their kids be brainwashed with their half-truths, instead of the world’s agreed-upon version of events. It’s so dismissive of the whole wide world, of the actual “real” story humanity maintains is the truth.

Instead, their idealized version of US history (“American Exceptionalism”) is delusional, laced with misplaced arrogance and blatant ignorance of factual realities, entrenched in the narcissistic idea of “screw the world, damn the truth! We won, and how we did it, don’t matter. We just came out on top - recognize!”

I find that amazing... Trump’s 80 million-strong cult is a monolithic, fossilized and unchanging sub-group so disconnected and indifferent with the truth, and so much more obsessed with their individual situation and national/global domination - that we’d better wake up…before we’re back pickin’ cotton and tobacco, well today that’d be picking Marijuana…
