When I woke up this morning, in I stumbled about in my morning ritual of making toilet, feeding and watering cats, and making coffee while my husband and I engaged in light chit chat.
Normally our daily initial discussions are not about serious matters, because it takes a while for me to fully waken and let my brain work at proper levels. See, he is Yugoslavian, and his accent is still heavy despite his speaking with me exclusively in American English, so we avoid weighty topics until I am functioning. We have a tacit agreement to let me fully wake before discussing heavier matters, because communication requires listening and comprehension for both parties. This helps us avoid confusion and conflict and misunderstanding each other.
This morning was different. While I was completing my morning tasks, he read to me a tweet by @intellihubnews reading: “Massacre in
#Charleston, SC as white gunmen kills 9 black church members in apparent hate crime”. I stopped dead in my tracks. My husband continued with a question, “Is the proper term Racial War, or Race War?”. I told him, and then asked him if he was serious, and where it was, as he didn’t pronounce the city correctly and I could not make out if he said Charlotte (NC) or Charleston SC. He read it again properly, and I said yes, it is a race war, now.
One would think that having a black (ok, half black) president in office would preclude a race war and would show the world that America is a progressive country. Anyway, I recalled and told my mate what happened last time we were at the brink of a race war, that it was the rash of church burnings during the Clinton administration. I had to amend myself in the retelling and let him know that while his country was being dissolved and bombarded by the U.S. and NATO, we in America were having all kinds of racial issues, and prominently shown was the crosses afire and churches of black people being burned.
I wondered aloud: Why is it that when Democrats are in the Presidency, do we have more extreme racial tensions in my country? I continued with, that when Republicans are in office, you see diversity in the cabinet members. Whereas, in the Democratic cabinet you see almost all white members (it must be noted that Clinton’s cabinet was predominantly jewish). Obama’s cabinet had only black person,Holder.
I then burst into tears as I recalled in flashes how proud I was the day Obama was sworn in, because he hadn’t been shot down before taking office, being a far cry from seeing cross burnings in Tennessee and KKK groups in full regalia with Uzis blocking traffic to ‘accept donations to help some white guy, this happened when I was in my teens. This is where I may be too sensitive for I went to an all-black-inner-city-right-next-to-the-ghettos high school for a semester and saw for myself that whites can co-exists with blacks. There was only one issue of racism by one of my fellow students at that time, but who could blame him, he watched the KKK hang his father to death. But even that student listened to reason and knew that I didn’t do this and my daddy didn’t do it. We became friends afterwards, and he would later stand up to defend me in a violent situation. I recalled also the incident where my father invited the only interracial couple in our county for dinner. They accepted, and in full daylight with the American Flag flying on our front porch, the couple came in our front door, by God! From then on we would hear the gaggling of whispering gossipers when we would go into our small town.
My flashes of recall included the strangest thing in my life. It was that of a old crusty slackjawed lifelong KKK good-ole-boy, and a inner city black gang leader going around to the back of a Waffle House, to smoke some cannabis. After doing so, they would be friendly to each other and still ask about each other’s welfare. This was also in Tennessee. So in my life time, I have seen real progress. I thought then ‘Gone are the days of that putrid hatred.”
Of course I started crying when I heard of the South Carolina shooting. 9 black people died at the hands of a white man in a church. This is the year 2015. We are supposed to be past this nonsense.
Since I always see the story behind the story, I have become very concerned at what I see as constructed racial tensions, most recently the McKinney pool party. There are groups who are paying ‘activists’ and something called rent-a-crowd to mold public opinion and fan the fire of tensions. We have also the Ferguson and Baltimore incidents, among others that have become prominent in the news domestically and internationally. The Texas Police Department Shooting has been featured as a terrorist incident, that I see as a premise to ban guns again as headlines scream for gun control. Isn’t it odd that these news pundits don’t call for the disarmament of police when cops kill innocent people, black or white, right on video! In the police department shooting, I find this can also qualify as race related issue because some in the black community voiced that they didn’t think the white perpetrator would be shot and killed like black people would be. He was.
I am disgusted by the puppeteers controlling our society. The media splashes our TVs and Newspapers with these bloody stories to sell more papers and will start creating their own stories to ensure the ratings and subscriptions continue. Mayors get fired and studies are done and nothing is truly getting done to ensure the rights all Americans are supposed to have!
The activists and protesters missed an obvious message from the movie Django:
Calvin Candie: Because I said so, that’s why! Dr. Schultz is my guest. Hildi is my nigger. Southern hospitality dictates I make her available to him.
Stephen: But Monsieur Candie, she run off.
Calvin Candie: Christ, Stephen! What is the point of having a nigger that speaks German if you can’t wheel ’em out when you have a German guest? Now I realize it is an inconvenience! Still, you take her ass out.
Supposed protesters have been wheeled out. From one of my previous blogs:
Whereas George Soros has nothing to worry about while he and his organizations have incited and PAID people to riot and foment rage in the people. His groups coined the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter, while unleashing violence in Ferguson. Soros targeted Black people directly, then sat back and watched. His puppet Obama used to work for one of these organizations.
I am even more convinced now that this is all a construct by Soros and his Government goons, to disarm and destroy our country like they did to the Yugoslavians. Perhaps black Americans can learn from a historical black activist, who’s words are not taught in school today, so I will provide a quote that is most appropriate:
15 November 1867, Fredrick Douglass said “A man’s rights rest in three boxes. The ballot box, jury box and the cartridge box. Let no man be kept from the ballot box because of his color. Let no woman be kept from the ballot box because of her sex”
That is the most important message in the whole movie. The gun in the well trained hand (black or white) does indeed make a great equalizer. None of the people, I daresay in the church in South Carolina, was armed. They had gathered in a prayer meeting. The bible teaches all to be armed. Had one or two of them had been armed that shooter would not have succeeded in taking so many lives, he certainly wouldn’t have escaped!
I don’t give a damn what color you are. If you are an American Adult on American soil, you should be armed and trained and practiced well in pistolcraft and sharpshooting. Let us all quit wasting money on the bullshit junkfood and tech toys and take instead markmanship classes and weapons handling courses. While we are at it how about folks take pistol to hand combat training so folks can disarm an idiot that has a gun. Disarming the psycho when they pop-up, that is how you control guns. Let us not wait on the government to make things better, history proves government always makes stuff worse. Do it yourself! Every individual is responsible for their own safety. I do not ever want to burst into tears again because people had no means to defend themselves from a ruffian.
“The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside. And while a single nation refuses to lay them down, it is proper that all should keep them up. Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them.” – Thoughts on Defensive War, 1775; The Writings of Thomas Paine, Collected and Edited by Moncure Daniel Conway (New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1894) Volume 1, Chapter XII
People who go to prayer meetings, do not go to chit chat with friends and neighbors. They go to have a meeting with God and discuss with Him(Her the Great Spirit, however you all call the Creator) the issues of the day and to petition our Source for the benefit of other people.
For those souls who were at that prayer meeting and were praying for others, you beautiful souls went to the Father today, you are now relieved of your earth burdens, you were faithful to the end. I know it is belated, but Thank You.
