Yes, perhaps I am a tad too cynical and negative when it comes to believing “White” America has had some comin’ to baby Jesus moment over the last half century. And now, come 2022, there’s a new collective belief in brotherhood, sharing resources and power, living together as neighbors, co-workers, classmates… and in-laws. I just do not buy it. Suddenly, after 400 years of this… you know what. Sure, perhaps, but I highly doubt it. After my five decades of experience living this fixed game of life, I trust my “spider senses.”

That’s why I wanted to arm you with this sharp and blunt observation, a provocative thought for your “cocktail conversations” this weekend: Donald Trump, if anointed King again, would do to “urban” America what Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is doing to Ukraine…wage bloody, destructive war upon American citizens.

Ponder that both disturbing and distressing point, please, because it’s true, and scary as hell.

Fourteen days into Putin’s war and it’s undeniable to the experts on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, throughout the entire alphabet, that Putin’s “war-aim” is to simply punish the Ukraine people, break them like they were glass.

Putin didn’t know, did he?

With that noted, Trump’s backers across America are parroting his treasonous support of Vladdy. They are, in essence, defending Putin’s diabolical actions. They’d back and support Putin for King of America before they’d vote for Kamala Harris for President. Now check it, they’ll be cheering the day Trump carries out the same actions in the Bronx or Liberty Town. You know I’m telling the “Burning Bush” truth, you know it! Meanness and cruelty: core elements of the “Right’s” historical, traditional, strategic game plan.

Yet another atrocity to contemplate my deeper-thinking friends: Lord Trump, if re-elected, or if say Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is installed - if either is anointed Grand Pooh-Bah - there does exist the distinct and real possibility both these men would condone and conduct this type of orchestrated chaos and mayhem upon “urban” metropolises and megalopolises across this disconnected and disunited nation if they could concoct some reason to do another Tulsa or Rosewood.

Putin is the unofficial/official “King of all the White people on earth,” - in his little twisted mind, but more concerning, in the minds of millions upon millions of other White folks across parts of Europe, the Americas and Asia - wherever the sun didn’t set on the WASP empire.

Dig, that’s the 3-tier Star Trek Chess these sinister dudes are playing. This war is a part of some global realigning of power stuff playing out in front of our eyes, on our historical watch.

We’re witnessing the fall of European colonialism and also the re-fall of Russian Imperialism as Putin attempts to revive a dying monster. China is honestly trying to dismantle British imperialism by any barbaric means they deem necessary. Nonetheless, the world is changing and Trump is the face of those who want America to be taken back and re-made a White male-dominated and led empire. And to attain that Vanilla Utopia, Trump would engage in the same barbarism as Putin is today. Both men are heartless, soulless, and obsessed with their own individual power and place in history. Putin is bombing Ukrainian schools, churches, and hospitals. Trump’s America has a similar history of such atrocities, no?

I don’t know what you people are playing, checkers, Spades, Biz-wiz, “21” or “Tiddlywinks” but this cat is playing “Pho’ real.”

Oh!!! Why can’t the blind see?!

I’m sorry, but I just don’t believe we’re having a frank and honest conversation about “who” and “what” we, as Black folks, and other Americans of color are confronted with here, at the advent of the 21st century. An aligning of an axis of white power? A revamped Soviet Empire, a cleansed America, Great Britain, and other Europeans going further into white supremacy, Canada, Austria… a new world order? China can have back its pre-imperialism empire, and together as the fat cats, they can all split and exploit Africa, Central America, and India?

These are indeed interesting times we are a-livin’ through… There’s a “big picture” and an “end game.”

Trump yearns, at his core as the messiah of the self-acclaimed “real” Americans, to remake “Happy-Days” and “Mayberry RFD,” as do the millions-strong cult which backs him: all those US Senators, Army generals, cops, teachers, lawyers, bankers, nurses, etc., etc., etc. And just as Putin is willing to kill Ukrainians, and starve and decimate the Russian people, Trump would have no qualms doing the same here to select portions of the US population.

Trump would bomb parts of California: you know, San Francisco, Fresno, and East LA, to be sure. He might attack New York City, Chicago, Miami, San Antonio, take back the Alamo, make it a nuclear arsenal. Atlanta, Houston, and of course Albuquerque. Just as Vladdy isn’t blinking an eye to slaughtering innocent children, I don’t think merciless Trump would lose sleep over killing Americans, at least Americans of color and White Democrats (traitorous negro Lovers). Nor do I believe his, yes millions and millions, and millions of followers, would be bothered by bombing Compton, Portland, Berkeley, East St. Louis, Gary, Indiana, or Oakland if the false pretense and excuse could be concocted.

I’d also surmise that the rank n’ file Republicans across America would leap into line to rationalize, minimize and justify the attacks. Remember, the Neo-Confederacy sits but 15 minutes outside every Chocolate City across the US. “White flight,” both strategic and chaotic in its motivation, has created the “two Americas” people speak of, separate and unequal in all matters - which matters.

Bombing Tulsa was, some say, a natural instinct. Or, perhaps, a reactionary yet practical maneuver? The same applies to the bombing of Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Nothing personal. America has been and could be, especially under a caveman administration like Trump’s would unquestionably be.

Indisputably, Putin’s a cold-blooded, tyrannical mass murderer, a genocidal killer, and he’s Trump’s role model. If I understand it correctly, one of Donny’s other mentors is Adolf Hitler. I think Putin’s murderous acts could tragically be internalized and imitated by Trump.

I lay this troubling thought on the table because it’s a truth this nation should accept and examine, perhaps asking themselves, is Trump-loving America capable of committing the crimes against humanity that Putin is guilty of? And, in grasping this situation, does it not hammer home the importance of voting in the upcoming elections?
