The earthquake in Haiti will remain engraved in my memory for the rest of my life. I can’t even put into words how depressing, vexed, and tense the events of the last two weeks have left me. The horror and the lost of so many lives stirred up so many emotions within me. It had me asking the question, why? Over and over... Why did this have to happen to Haiti, my people, who've already suffered more than people can imagine? I know it doesn't make sense to question a natural disaster and devastation it leaves behind because man has no control over it. An earthquake and any type of natural disaster can happen anywhere in the world.
Yet and still, I will never forget the cruel, cold-hearted, thoughtless, and callous remarks made regarding the victims of Haiti by those who chose to make it out of a political point scoring moment or just out of downright mean-spiritedness and though I wish no ill any other human being; I will have no sympathy when the shoe falls on the other foot.
As I watched the so-called rescue of Haitians, why is it that I get the impression that black people are under attack and targeted for ethnic cleansing? It seems as if those who wish us ill have decided our fate and feel that it is their given right to play God, judge, and jury over us. They've made up their mind that those of us with a darker hue of skin should all be destroyed by any means necessary—the earth is not big enough for us and them too. Under what authority did they get the right to decide other human beings fate? As if they are the reigning supreme beings who breathed life into all human beings.
I remember reading, watching, and hearing about the horrors of ethnic cleansing that went on over in Europe and even in Africa and how shocked and appalled I felt. Americans watched and listened in horror. Yet, the USA is guilty of that crime as well. Only theirs comes under many different, subtle disguises called birth control and police brutality, environmental racism, the infiltration of drugs and guns smuggled into minority neighborhoods, and even man-made A.I.D.S. Resistence Records made and distributed racist video games called "Ethnic Cleansing" and "White Law" inspired by the Turners Diaries around 2000 and still do as far as I know. Was this a manuel or guide to help them make preparations to do a little ethnic cleansing or was it putting the idea out there to see how many were willing to take them up on their subliminal message?
The Anti-Defamation League publicized the existence of the game and unsuccessfully lobbied the developers of Genesis3D to change their licensing conditions to prohibit the use of the engine to develop racist games. They have also lobbied the Interactive Digital Software Association to encourage their members to adopt such policies. Stuff Magazine named Ethnic Cleansing the 40th most controversial video game of all time in January 2003. ~~Wikipedia~~
How many times do you hear words such as these coming from angry whites? "Thugs, welfare recipents, stop blaming whitey, stupid nigger, worthless race, black have too many babies, gangs, too much black violence, stop playing victim, the race card, inferior, etc.? Like a broke record these words have played over and over and over.
Throughout history black people have been ridiculed, degraded, put down, humiliated, dehumananized. If I took to heart everything said about us, I wouldn't even know my own family, my friends, or blacks that have been successful, since all blacks are seen as and lumped in one boat as criminal misfits and not as individuals. Instead I would view them all in a bad light. The good and bad in all human groups does not apply to blacks. We're recognized as ALL bad, corrupt, incompetent, lacking intelligence, and lacking moral values. In spite of the many achievements of blacks, our accomplishments are dismissed as mediocre, or worthless. We hear too many times the declaration that "Affirmative Action" is the cause of our achievements instead of our intelligence.
Those are the cheerleading sections, those in the audience of the gladiator stands screaming for blood, black people's blood, building up the momentum for ethnic cleansing. This is nothing new, the thirst for black people's blood has been going on since slavery. What is even more sickening is that some of own people are helping them execution style and through poisoning our neighborhoods with drugs.
I once read a book and watched a movie called, "Thank You For Smoking", and at first I thought to myself that whoever wrote this story needs another occupation. But then, it hit me, what the story was all about—population control! Only in America, it appears that the population that they wish to control is black folks.
As I watched the news regarding Haiti, I observed something very troubling to me. A white man who had been rescued was being interviewed. He had the same injuries as those Haitians that are dying of, a cut and broken legs. Yet the same injuries because of lack of antibotics is what the Haitians are dying of. In fact, all of the whites rescued and had, basically,the same injuries and were treated with antibotics and all of their limbs have been saved. Yet, the Haitians are dying of the same injuries because of the claims of no antibotics being delivered to them and losing their limbs. No x-rays taken to diagnose if limbs could be saved.
There are nightly reports of how the medical supplies needed are stacking up and held up at the airport and even visuals of the crates of supplies just sitting there unattended and not moving anywhere. That along with quite a few other things I've observe needs looking into. However, I doubt that will happen and if so it will be a grand performance of trying to get to the bottom of it and in reality not a darn thing done about it except that it will be dismissed as lack of coordination or some other excuse.
Herod must be proud of his offsprings. I am speaking of those who think it is their appointed duty to dictate who should live and who should die. Which ethic group is next if their goal is accomplished? Death of the poor will not make the rich...richer! Because the poor we will have with us always.
