Just because FOX News has axed Imperial Wizard Tucker Carlson, it does not mean there’ll be a “positive” change across America. The overt, over-the-top arrogance and smugness far too many White males embody, that lordliness, is shocking and disgusting, even to someone like myself who believes I understand their reckless train of thought. Most, not all, but a significant portion of the White male population is the embodiment of the term “drunk with power,” and well armed. Please don’t delude yourself, the guns are to “defend” themselves against Black and Brown folks.

FOX News lovin’ White men are the “prime” source of conflict and resistance to social progress, and to civilizing our so-called highest form of civilization ever attained by humans. Tucker Carlson was merely one of the cheerleaders trying to incite a race war in order to derail “progress.”

It’s disgusting, to say the very least.

I’ve been making this point at cocktail parties and backyard gatherings for a decade: America’s problem is that far too many, if not most, White men are the problem. Let’s be blunt - Democracy in America has one enemy - the Conservative-minded/Confederate-hearted White man. The founding fathers, most if not all, never thought “democracy” was intended for people of color or women, right? And today in 2023, if they are forced to share the power, they’d rather burn this place down before surrendering to terms like integration, inclusivity, diversity, fairness, and equality.

Democracy is an inconvenience for the vast majority of White males who mark themselves as “Conservatives.” They must navigate around and manipulate it to their liking.

The noble goals of reforming the health industry, mass transportation, public education, and crafting a more compassionate capitalist system have one oppositional force to contend with in America - “Conservative” White men.

The Republican Party, i.e., the majority of mainstream White males, are opposed to women’s rights and equality. They want to control women’s sex lives, as they’ve always sought to do. They want to call Native Americans “Redskins.” They want to keep the names of Confederate war heroes and Indian Killers like George Custer hung high on mountains and monuments. They want to control gay people and force them back into the attic and root cellar. They want to put Blacks back in Nigger-town, Jews back in Jew-town, and Asians assigned to China Town. They’re opposed to Latinos crossing the Rio Grande or navigating the Caribbean Sea to get to the land of freedom, equality, and justice, yet are not opposed to Nordic, Euro-WASP brethren immigrating to America.

Who are the only people to be the victims of a US Nuclear bomb attack, yes the Japanese, you knew it wasn’t going to be the Germans.

And yes, I’d like to, strictly for effect and impact, employ the before-mentioned “terms of endearment” for I believe the vast majority of White folks use them when not in the presence of folks of color, which means, in this segregated and polarized nation, all the time. However, seldom if ever to your face, always behind your back - the epitome of passive-aggressive deceptiveness and hypocrisy, no?

I wholeheartedly believe they’re but a few, a midget’s handful maybe, of Trump-loving people who use the “B” word... “Black.” No, instead, I believe they’re simply referring to us using the same derogatory verbiage as their parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc., etc., No, they haven’t changed! It’s not that they’ve gotten worse, it’s that most of White America has only made a superficial, window-dressing type change. White American culture needs an overhaul, a coming-to-baby-Jesus experience.

Now, if you think otherwise and doubt it, I’ve got some real estate on the moon for you to buy. Only $50.000 to name a “star” after yourself or a loved one….. let’s make that deal, baby.

Mainstream White USA is vehemently opposed to Americans of color seeking equality and power. The MAGA wing of Tennessee illustrated that when they tried to politically lynch and thus silence Congressman Justin Jones and Justin Pearson. Look to Montana, where transgender Congresswomen Zooey Zephyr has been silenced by MAGA leaders, and not permitted to speak on issues related to transgender children. Too many White men seek absolute power and control, content to shove their way of life down your throat.

How can you disagree with the obvious: mainstream White males are the prime source of conflict and resistance to progress, to civilizing our civilization? Liberal, Progressive minded White dudes represent a small slice of their peer group.

Picture, in black & white, a $1.00 slice of cold pizza, cheese, no meat, at a defunct K-Mart cafeteria.

It is Confederate-minded White men who are still trying to dismantle American society’s safety nets - FDR’s New Deal, LBJ’s Great Society, and MLK’s Dream. The “Right” in America oppose the United Nations, perhaps honestly despising the notion of a “united” world standing against imperialism, colonialism, and exploitation. Trump’s cult opposes everybody and everything which isn’t, as neo-Confederate congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene said, White, male, Christian…

Check it, she’ll be Lord Trump’s Vice President pick.

Here, permit me to amend my contention: Angry, half-mad White men are “Public Enemy #1,” and they have the assistance of over 50% of voting-age White gals, who damn near blindly support and have the back of their oppressive and controlling husbands, fathers, brothers and sons, instead of standing with their fellow Americans of color, who share the same oppressor and exploiter. I guess it would be betrayal, but you can only betray someone who trusted you, and I ain’t ever trusted Mary Poppins.

Do you think White men harbor empathy for other groups? After what they’ve done in the last few months to “control” women, who could argue “Right-wing” men regard women as equal? I’d contend, no, they don’t.

Within US society, most White men have not displayed any real sensitivity to people from different walks of life. No, well please just read a 10th-grade textbook, gee, simply based on history and contemporary events - the conclusion is undeniable. If most White guys empathized with people, if most White guys identified and had an affinity for and sympathized with different diverse sects, well then hell, they wouldn’t still be trying to impose, against our collective will, their form of ruthless, mean, vindictive Donald Trump-type minority rule.

Stop me when I’m lying, otherwise…. I knew all about Emmett Till before this latest discovery of Black history by this generation of lost negro neophytes. Thank God Hollywood makes movies or Black folks wouldn’t know “who” we are, “where” we are, and “who” we’re dealing with. That’s so trifilin’.

Right Wing White men are the prime source of resistance to progress, to civilizing our civilization. Instead, they want to drag America back to their glory days and return America to 1955.

C’mon, take the next step, people! Trump unquestionably wants to be King of The World, while far too many White men, and their women, their female possessions, want Trump as their king, Lord, dictator, Grand Dragon….

Trump’s MAGA base is well-armed poor White folks, the well-armed working middle class, and extremely well-armed wealthy fat cats. Young, old, urban, rural, and suburban, i.e., a diverse, deep, and wide chunk who share a cultural commonality - their love of guns and their seemingly endless and rampant racism, sexism, and xenophobia towards “the other.”

It seems within Trump’s clan, their internal ethnocentric phobias aren’t limited to a geographical location, a religious doctrine, or an economic standing. Educated or uneducated, sure education seems to lend to some type of enlightenment, but it’s no guarantee that they will be decent good white men. None whatsoever.

From tow-truck drivers and Air Force Pilots to teachers and preachers, bankers, butchers, candle-sticks, and computer-chip makers, you’ll find MAGA backers. They may dub themselves “Libertarians” or “independents” but at the end of the KKK parade, there they are, supporting the Trump cult.

Band! One more Time - MAGA White men are the prime source of resistance to progress, to civilizing our civilization.
