Here we are, mid-week, and MSNBC and CNN are parroting my column from last week. Trump is a die-hard fan of Adolph Hitler, wants to be like him, do like him. Good God!

But let’s move on.

I don’t have a lot of faith in the rank n’ file of MAGA White women to defy the orders of their men and disobey. Matter of fact, I expect the majority to stand by their, for lack of a more fitting term, “masters” and vote for Donald Trump. I don’t believe, as a subgroup, they will do anything to endanger their privileged place in US society.

This means people of color are going to have to step up and vote in unprecedented numbers. But, as significant as showing up to vote is, we must do all we can to ensure other Black folks we know do not cast a single vote for Lord Trump.

Matter of fact, “family and friends can’t let family and friends vote for Trump.”

We have to do all we can; the fate of the Black American empire is at stake. The very fabric, feel and taste of this country our children and grandchildren live in is on the verge of going back in time.

Perhaps we Americans of color can start now with support groups at work and church, where we work to change the minds of all the “sellouts,” all the Oreos, Apples, Bananas, and Coconuts who are, despite the abundance of information circulating that outlines and highlights Trump’s infatuation and preoccupation with Adolf Hitler, still supporting the guy. The gazillion-dollar question is, how can any Black man, Latino man, Asian person, or Jewish person cast a vote for a caveman as undeniably racist, sexist, and soulless as Trump?

What makes people of color, caught up in the middle of an escalating race war we didn’t start, turn on their own kind? Black and Brown people didn’t create this cultural battleground we live in. This is no longer, and honestly has never been, the United States of America, and it’s not our fault. All we’ve all tried to do, as unquestionably wronged people - is forgive and forget, move on, assimilate and accommodate, and look where it’s gotten us. We are born into a rigged game. From “Jump Street,” the average American of color’s chances of achieving the almost mythical American Dream is “against all odds.”

Is it that Clarence Thomas type of self-hatred? Are they simply political prostitutes?

Are they Hustlers like the late Herman Cain, or just highly educated fools like Dr. Ben Carson? Are they jive-ass con men, like the buffoonish Negro ministers who aid and abet Trump?

Whatever propels these treasonous idiots, it is our collective/individual responsibility, not White liberals or ministers, but rather Black folks, to halt these clowns before they help open the doors to the gas chambers and jumbo-airplane hangar-size ovens. I’m here to tell you that some of these cats would put their own momma on the corner of 120th Ave. and Broadway in Any City USA if the price was right.

Yes, we’ve got those born in the projects, who pulled themselves up by their Converse All-Star shoelaces and believe they’re better than the rest of the field slaves; they’ll not vote, or worse yet, vote for a 3rd party candidate. Or the ones who have advanced degrees, but they’re just not into politics, or they vote Republican based on their E-Wallets and portfolios and in essence, help hand the victory to Trump.

Their misguided arrogance is rooted in their ignorance and insecurities, the desire to be disconnected/different/better than the rest of the “little people.” They represent tens of thousands of colored Americans – millions - who backed Trump because he was a fatcat baller. You have to remind these small-minded kittens n’ cats, “all that glitters is not gold!”

These fools must be stopped.

The Thanksgiving holiday is as good a time as any to address this issue at traditional family gatherings, identify these Toms, and then bring the heat, turn on the pressure - education, enlightenment, guilt, shame, perhaps a backyard brawl, but we, as a people, must straighten these you-know-what’s out. No one else is going to do it for us; we have to erase any support Trump has enjoyed in the past.

Sororities, fraternities, the Elks, Owls, Moses, Masons, Black professional organizations - the podiatrists and acupuncturists to bakers butchers, and computer chipmakers - you name it - we must find, identify and intimidate, if we can’t educate these pawns, and sit their backward nonthinking negro asses down.

MAGA America hates Americans of color more now than we were hated half a century ago. They’re talking “retribution…!”

synonyms: punishment, penalty, nemesis, fate, doom, one's just deserts, due reward, just reward, wages, justice, retributive justice, poetic justice, judgment, reckoning, revenge, reprisal, requital, retaliation, payback, vengeance, tit-for-tat, measure for measure, redress, reparation, restitution, recompense, repayment, damages, satisfaction, remedy, comeback, atonement, amends, one”s comeuppance….

And yet, and yet… millions of “colored” Americans will vote “with” those who seemingly despise us. Trump wants to represent and embody “retribution.” MAGA America desperately wants to violently drag America kickin’ n’ screamin’ back to the good ol’ days of apartheid and we can’t sit quietly by, watching the game and letting it happen on our watch!

Far too many Americans of color have developed a serious case of Stockholm Syndrome. We identify with our oppressors and think we are “different” and better than our peers in the eyes of mainstream White America, but no fool, they don’t want you as their in-laws or their boss, either!

Wake up !!!
