Hello, is this MAGA headquarters? Someone has stolen the Clarence the Lawn Jockey statue from the Devil’s palatial Lake of Fire Estate and he wants his boy back, now!”

United States Supreme Court Justice, Clarence Thomas, may be the most blatantly egregious and grossly disgusting “Uncle Tom” in the history of Black America, our nation, within a decadent fading empire, where we are witnessing, in “real-time” his aiding and abetting of America’s 21st-century version of the 1861 Confederacy - the most racist elements of US society: Minute Men, Proud Boys, The GOP, The Ku Klux Klan…. Uncle Thomas knows that and he still sleeps at night.

He is unquestionably operating as a pawn, a hand puppet, a “useful” idiot: let’s call him what he is - a lawn jockey for who is essentially the Grand Wizard of some racist, sexist, and elitist cult - Donald Trump.

Whatever its slightly debatable origin, the Black lawn jockey became a symbol of “obedient devotion.” And lest we forget North Carolina’s new useful idiot, Mark Robinson, yet another vivid illustration of this type of lost Stepin’ Fetchit House Negro.

Technically, these assorted nuts hate Black people in general. If they could sell their worthless souls to the flame-headed devilish wizard, in exchange for being turned White, they’d do it in a New York second. Neither of these men should be able to get a head shine at a Black barbershop anywhere across Black America!

Look, I believe we, as Black people, have an abundance, a treasure trove of evidence to convict these sellouts of “treason” - in the first degree. We can revoke, pull their “Black Man” Cards. Clarence’s has been “under suspension” since he allowed himself to be pimped by George Bush and installed to replace the illustrious Judge Thurgood Marshall.

My much better half asked me, “How in the world could anyone Black vote for Trump?”

My reply “I’d like to hear their reasons for voting for this hustling White supremacist.”

What could their reasoning be?

His elitist economic policies?

I do know more than a few high falutin people of color who vote their wallets and purses and almost dismiss every other issue.

His dictatorial support of foreign policies?

How could a person of color support Europeans like Putin and Trump who hate the United Nations and virtually all concepts of global equality?

Can it be what Grand Pooh-But claims it is: there are those elements of Black America that would buy his golden patient plastic kicks because trashy recognizes trashy?

Perhaps these men reflect the millions of Black Trump backers who are, too, victims of “self-hatred?”

One must not marginalize the hard truth: there are those Black folks who hate themselves and hate their fellow Black people. They wish, hell, yearn to be White. They have been effectively brainwashed by the greater White society, which screams to them in both subtle and overt manners - you are subpar and substandard. Just by the luck of the DNA draw you came out Black and damned - ugly and dumb - inferior and saddled with all the derogatory traits, features, and characteristics mainstream White America has hammered into our heads for the last half a millennium. Far too many Black folks have drunk the Kool-Aid the Conservatives/ Confederates/ Supremacists have been selling us:n Black folks are inferior.

I also know more than a few Black folks who regard the rank n’ file Black masses not as their societal peers: “They may be my neighbors, however, they are not my kind” - both despising and detesting the unwashed little poor uneducated folks who proudly yet ignorantly self-describe themselves as “Niggers.” However, still, as Black Conservatives, they Love “Black” people.

Additionally let’s recognize the historic Booker T. Washington versus WEB DuBois internal conflict, which was still evident with the MLK Civil Rights movement versus Malcolm X and the Black Power Movement. There were those who refused to “turn the other cheek,” who were too busy swinging to be singing “We shall overcome” - We are not a monolithic people.

And if I’m looking for rhyme, reason, and rationale as to “why” Blacks will vote for Trump, I know there are those who simply and naively believe that their individual, personal riches separate them from the majority of Black folks who aren’t wealthy - in the all-important eyes of White folks. They’ve bought and spent themselves out of their Blackness. They, too, believe rich people are better than poor folks, because they, too, calculate that God is money, and money is God.

Ain’t that a ….

Now, in dissecting the “hot mess” that is the Black Trump supporter, I can’t negate the obvious: yes, they’re technically “dumb” - uneducated, and unenlightened. They just do not grasp the “useful idiot” role they play in the multi-tier chess game that is US politics. They’re small and simple-minded, indeed “pawns” being manipulated for a few dollars.

Shame, shame, shame on these diabolical turncoats no matter what their thinking is!

I’m going to be sharp and blunt here: we, as a people, struggling in a hostile land, at a critical moment in our bloody story, ought to place immense shame and complete guilt upon friends, family, and co-workers who are Black, and even considering voting for a man backed by the Klan. Our ancestors’ efforts, their struggles for you - they and I demand we not go ignorantly into the good night.
