The “good” white people, alas the NPR “Liberals” and the MSNBC “Progressives” are going to fail Black America, pathetically so. American Democracy is going past tense. Call it a “gut” feeling, a summation based upon half a century of being Black... the entire time, from birth to today, in a racially polarized nation.

Let’s walk n’ talk: America’s today taking a step backward, and it’s being facilitated by “bad” white folks. However, it will also be the meek, weak, spineless inactions and well-documented silence of “good” white folks which will “enable” the end of this so-called “advanced” civilization. Humanity is asking “good” white folks to make a stand in the name of decency and fairness…but since there are numerically fewer good white folks, there simply won’t be enough “good” white folks willing to fight for it.

Here, let’s make this public school simple: there are more, much more racist, sexist, elitist, and xenophobic white folks,i.e., ‘bad’ white folks, than there are fair, decent, empathetic, we’ll call them “good” white folks - this obvious and undeniable numerical reality explains and defines US history - it is the story of the empire. Additionally, the “Bad” white folks have within their ranks millions of angry, half-insane white folks who appear to be much more hostile and ill-tempered. Not to mention they’ve got a lot more guns.

The “good” white folks couldn’t stop the “mean” white folks from waging genocide against American Natives. The “good” abolitionist couldn’t stop the “bad” slave traders and holders.... The “good” White folks lost the argument when it comes to women's rights, worker's rights, civil rights, and human rights. Please! Most Americans of color are still working for peanuts, have no savings in the bank, women (specifically poor White gals) still belong’ to men, the nation is being resegregated under minority white rule…

And I ask “what has white America really done for people of color?” Given us some of what we should have already had?

President Joe Biden, Obama’s boy - his “main man” just asked white America “Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?” Let’s be truthful: Most of White America made that decision decades ago…most White folks are on the side of Georgia Grand Wizard George Wallace. As they, too, are on the side of Bull Conner. The South has never laid the war to rest. It was instead immortalized and glorified.

And yes - most white folks are on the side of the infamous Confederate icon Jefferson Davis.

Look no further than the obvious and undeniable “White Flight,” the isolation and insulation the majority seek from Americans of color - separatism has been practiced and perfected by White America. Gee, the Nazis, and the South Africans looked to America to see “how-to” intern, imprison, impede, and exploit the people they hate.

The South lies but 15 minutes outside of every city and town across America, it was handcrafted by “White Flight.” The “Mason Dixon Line” is 15 minutes outside of any major downtown virtually anywhere across America.

Ponder my profound point, it is both sharp and blunt…The hallowed “South”, the Land of Dixie, the Confederacy lies but 15 minutes outside of every major metropolis, every big city and, every mid-size town across America - wherever White folk’s numbers are concentrated, wherever they are strategically isolated and tactically insulated, away from people of color, where the schools, parks, movie theaters, gyms, hospital, malls, and churches are as close to snow white, 1951 White Citizen Council White as they can manipulate the laws of society and economics to be…lies the Land of Cotton.

Your gated community can never, ever be too White.

All my caramel life I've tried to advocate this slice of common sense; we, as Black folks have merely been tolerated, not embraced. The vast majority of Colored Americans: black, brown, red, or yellow - we’ve all basically been tolerated, not welcomed, tolerated, not accepted. Archie Bunkers USA has stomached Americans of color.

Ain’t that a….?

So here we sit today at the mercy of a “good” white woman and a “good white man,” both claiming to have the best interest of Black people at heart. Together they tragically hold the fate of Black America in their hands. Yes, it’s that Romper Room simple, Arizona Sen. Kyrstan Sinema, supposedly from out west… will, along with allegedly another good white person, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, from kinda up North - will knowingly facilitate the fall of democracy by allowing the hard-earned “right” of voting to be strong armed away, stollen from millions.

Additionally, consider Attorney General Merrick Garland and members of the upper tier of the Democratic Party’s leadership roundtable and their undeniable lack of effort, lack of fire, lack of passion to defend democracy. Their complacency fits Dr. King’s thought: "The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people."

Together, without question, Black America is being sold down the river, again!

And don’t lose sight of the obvious: the outcome of suppressing the votes of people of color - the Democrat Party will also become more White, and this is the goal of Clinton and Reagan Democrats Dinos (Democrats In Name Only) and Limousine Liberals who want their party back, while Republicans want their country back.

Someone go put that “45” on by the Undisputed Truth, Smiling Faces Sometimes, or the OJays Backstabbers!

Believe it - both white Democrats and Republicans want to put the members of the 21st century New America back in our 19th-century place. Both want their control and power back - neither wants to share power with Americans of color and if you think otherwise as a person of color, well then you’re a damned fool.

Let’s wrap this up with an applicable MLK quote, after his birthday "The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict."
