I have said this privately and now on this blog, THERE IS A RACE WAR GOING ON IN AMERICA TODAY. WE KNOW WHICH SIDE IS WINNING BY THE BODY COUNT. Are you simply satisfied with living and dying in America. What are you prepared to do? There are a number of ways to fight this war, most of which will result in adding to the body count. Can I see a show of hands: Who would rather die on their feet fighting as opposed to laying face down on some street or backroad with a knee, foot, or bullet to the neck? WHAT ARE YOU PREPARED TO DO.
After weeks of Black Lives Matter protests, removal of Confederate statues, removal of Confederate Flags and hundreds of statements of support for the cause we see the start of an active backlash. The backlash is from that silent 30 to 35% of White Americans that are quite comfortable sitting in the seat of white supremacy and white privilege. They have no intention of giving it up and oh by the way – more than willing to fight and kill to keep it. This is the core constituency of the current President, Donald J. Trump. I seldom bring up his name for a whole host of reasons that I will not go into. His core constituency has stood by for four years while he has called every other ethnic, racial, and political group in America everything but a Child of God. He is their leader and they are one with him.
Bubba Wallace found out with the rest of America what the southern recalcitrant NASCAR crowd thinks of the reform efforts within the sport of racing. One more noose around the neck of one more Nigger. No problem and no consequences. They even did a fly over Talladega Speedway with the Confederate Flag. What did you expect?
Black folk have been living in America and dying at the hands of white mobs, small groups of citizens, white men, policemen and policewomen, and those with police powers for centuries. This will not be stopped by marching and protesting no matter how many people protest regardless of how long they protest. Its been about three and a half weeks of massive protests in the US and in many parts of the world. One day after Juneteenth celebrations we get a “noose warning” in the garage of the only Black man to drive/race in NASCAR. His mother is correct, “They only want to scare you…”. They also want to raise the stakes on everyone in solidarity with protestors and those calling for reform.
Retelling the history of slavery in the Americas, disrupting traffic and even taking over police stations has a temporary effect on business operations and tugs at the morality of empathetic Americans. In the end, it does not bring about profound, fundamental change to the white power structure that exist in this country. What this country loves and worships is money. If it doesn’t negatively impact the flow of commerce in a significant way, they see no reason to make changes. Please do not forget, the entire purpose and reason for slavery and the criminality of Black people today was and is commerce. The love and pursuit of money.
Why was the Covid 19 “stay at home” guidance discontinued? Because the economy stopped generating revenue and wealth. Not because we had beaten the virus and we have it under control. It was because people were not working and therefore not spending money and not generating profits for those monied interest behind the American economy.

I will give you my answer to this question over the next several weeks and months. Keep reading.

We all know an angry man. It seems he always speaks with passion even when the words appear
