So my cyberfriend, keep fighting the good fight in Nashville and beyond!!
It does appear and to me feels like someone trying to trivialize the most heart breaking and tragic period in the history of the human species.
Let us not forget that it was pure unadulterated greed in the desire for profit and riches of the few that forced the many into slavery.
Does that not sound like the same battle we are approaching in the coming economic disaster? The battle being currently fought in America is one of wealth.
The Republican plan was to continue to remove all taxes from the rich and tax the poor into the streets to beg. Taking what's left of the treasury and giving it to the banks and the wealthy. At that point you would have near slavery. Everyone would work for what ever money was offered.
That would have worked if it weren't for our President Obama. It has shocked the wealthy in this country that Black Americans and working class Whites carried an election by banding together to achieve a goal something few in this country ever thought would happen. But WE were successful.
That's the past and looking at the future Republicans and wealthy America one thing is coming. Note who the Republicans just made the chairperson.
In 2002 it was noted that Blacks in America had reached a threshold that the next generation of Black Americans were situated to inherit the the largest amount of money ever seen in this country.
Inez you have just seen and recognized how the Republicans plan to get power back to the rich. Nice Work....
How do you break the ties with the Democratic party Blacks have had since rich White American gave up slavery? Tell them you going to tax the first inheritance many have ever seen.
They are banking that wealthy Blacks will be a greedy and self-centered as Wealthy whites.
Your outrage Inez may be the deciding factor.
All people. Let me say that again. All Humans on the face of the Earth were descended from two Black people out of Africa.
Whites we are genetic mutants of
million's of years of evolution.
To say you know the pain of the Black race is impossible if you do not have the genetics to back it up. My mother brought her Black boyfriend to my high school functions. Yes in the South that was a painful experience for me. But one now that made me the person I am today. I didn't fully understand at the time but it changed many people for the better, me as well.
Why will the Jacksons in Nigeria and the Republicans in America fail in their endeavors to separate the Black race like they have the White, one in to wealthy the other average working class.
They fail to take in to consideration of the millions of years of the Black race of tribes and families and community in the face of overwhelming pain and suffering have made them not only Different race but dare I say a genetically superior one. Tune in in 100 years to find out.
For now, continue to look for the signs of the attempt to divide the Black Race into have and have not.
My personal opinion is this Jacksonville in Nigeria will fail for the very reason stated above. My hope the Black race will continue to say what they have said through history. Its not about sipping champagne and re-writing history at a golf course in Nigeria. Its about community and family helping your neighbors.
My mother would say to me. "Feel privileged that you are accepted with open arms in the Black community, people I have always prided myself in knowing. For it was your Grandfather that denied the basic rights deserving of all humans to the Black community in this County."
I was privileged and still am. Please God I pray for one thing: never again divide us By race color creed sexuality or national origin.
Moreover by Separating us by Greed for the riches of wealth.
