Trump is a trashy man, he is “White Trash...with money.”
Honestly, I’d venture to say the folks who support him are
trashy people, whatever their color, and they lack both character
week when Colin Powell passed, Trump offered this gibberish to
appease, please and inflame his constituents; “Wonderful to see
Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called
weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by
the Fake News Media,” Trump said in a statement. “Hope
that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO [Republican in Name
Only], if even that, always being the first to attack other
Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in
sorry, but I just can’t let time passing stop me from calling a
life weasel, and
Donald Trump, along with those millions who back him are low
the lowest of the low...men and women who couldn’t shine the
4-star general’s boots.
I’m left to ponder the obvious: If men like Colin Powell and
Barack Obama are too
White America, and that’s exactly what it is, both men are
then what spineless puppet do they want?
disgusted to see Donald Trump deliberately trash General Colin
Powell, and his body wasn’t even cold yet. This was, in my
brown eyes, much more than the intended insult it was, it was also an
example of how very cold-hearted and mean-spirited is all-white
audience Trump is playing to. He is them; they are he… they
are one. Horrific isn’t it?
they don’t like most Black people. They despise and oppose
Black popular thoughts and opinions.
Black Americans regard men like Colin Powell, Barack Obama,
Professors Henry Gates, Cornel West, women like Oprah, Michelle
Obama, Stacey Abrahams, Kamala Harris and Professor Angela Davis to
be model Black Americans, heroes, precisely who and what you want
your daughter or son to see as role models, to emulate and imitate -
understanding men and women are born, officers and gentlemen are
Powell was so
life, then my God, what do these people consider a good Black man to
be? Herman Caine?
can only conclude MAGA house negroes like Supreme Court clown,
Clarence Thomas, and Trump’s personal hand puppets, Dr. Ben
Carson, and Georgia Senator Tim Scott, represent “good”
men. Yes, believe it: in the miniature minds of Trump’s
America, these are the ideal, model negroes. These three modern-era
ministrials are the Black guys they consider “good niggers.”
let’s not act like Trump and his cult, when behind closed
doors. Don’t toss around terms like “Nigger,” just
as they do terms like “Chink”, “Bitch” and
“Spic.” I’d like to define and depict them as they
are, not as they diabolically pretend to be. I’m not going to
do them the favor.
on with reality... America, White America has a long history of
desiring to hand-pick Black folk’s heroes and leaders, for that
matter the leaders of all people of color throughout North American
history and for that matter, all across the globe - ain’t that
something? The effort itself is rooted in their paternal notion that
Blacks are easily influenced, merely adult children who don’t
know up from down, and will follow whomever they tell us to follow.
It’s another example of White men overestimating their
influence, clout and power, while underestimating the basic
competency of the rest of humankind.
seems White people, in general, prefer small, simple-minded negroes
who happen to be greedy fools, easily manipulated pawns who are
willing and wanting to say and do just about anything for personal
reward. Negroes who come with a price. They’ve been around
since we got off the slave ship.
the issue remains Trump’s desire, and one shared by millions of
kindred-spirited White folks to insult and demean Black people, who
should be, ought to be, based on all social norms, respected if not
held in high esteem. Why do they want to be so
Black people? The question is just that simple: What have we done
which drives the blind hatred, the animosity and contempt for Black
USA hates Treyvon Martin and George Floyd, but loves the men who
gunned them down. As they hated Dr. King at the height of the civil
rights movement, they hated Ali for not wanting to be a pawn in a
White man’s war. Hate Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
Zimmerman and Derrick Chauvin are American heartland Heroes.
America hates Black people with a spine, and a voice, who tell White
folks to go to hell with that cloaked and camouflaged White
Supremacist nonsense. They hate Black folks with a mind of their own.
They hate what they term as “Uppity Niggers.”
I’m one of them and I embrace that term, wear it with extreme
pride: Desi Cortez - “uppity” Black man. Put it on my
did we do, as a people to White America, that from their ranks
virtually 3 in 4 feel compelled to go out of their way to be cruel?
Cops and teachers who couldn’t give a damn, doctors and nurses
who treat Black patients as less? Bankers who work overtime to crush
Black homeowners' dreams. What is it we did that tells a White doctor
the Black 9-year-old is lying about her stomach pain?
are Black and Brown people “guilty” and “incompetent”
until we prove otherwise, while for folks like Trump it’s just
guess this question of
what motivates mainstream White America’s hate, will always be
something which I ponder - is it caveman elements that propel an
those visually different than you? Or is it envy? So many entrenched
and popular White stereotypes depict Blacks as so
from our physical superiority to our spiritual connections to life,
on to our mental and emotional ability to not only be able to survive
in this overtly hostile land, but to thrive... against all odds - in
a nation where millions hate you even before you open your mouth or
think because we do rise, as Powell rose from the son of Jamaican
immigrants in New York to Joint Chief of Staff and Secretary of
State, they hate us. Because everyday Black folks like myself want to
want for our kids all they can attain, want to simply go out to
dinner, go on a family vacation, enjoy anything beyond “Good
Times” and the “good life in the projects” and so
much of White America loses their gluten-free minds. We’re
trying to “live like White folks…” we don’t
“know our place,” ain’t that a …?!
hate gangsters and thugs, they hate “woke” college
students, they hate “progressive” teachers, lawyers and
supportive “good” Black cops and they hate Black
Presidents and generals who are both noble and good...they hate
everyone Black but the sellouts and Uncle Toms. A Black person must
hate themselves and embrace politicians and business people who
support a man backed by the KuKluxKlan...to garner, earn the status
of “good, decent Black folks” in the minds of White
you know what you can do with your “status”?
me, you don’t want their acceptance, approval nor respect.
Instead, hear the words of President Franklin D. Roosevelt “They
are unanimous in their hate for me - and I welcome their hatred.”
