Post-Racial America Was A Joke!
Well...here's an odd twist of what it is like to live in post-racial America. Last night, the story of an interracial couple was viewed on HBO, the Loving Story. Here is 2012 and the racial issue hasn't been solved yet. That's because there are a lot of people who hate. They hate people with different skin colors and different sexual orientations.
"A crime and politics blogger living in Austin, Texas, claims he was cuffed and detained by police for simply walking home with his five-year-old granddaughter." ~~
Here is a man walking with his granddaughter. The girl is not frightened or crying or acting like anything is wrong. However, this man was arrested for walking with his granddaughter who is heaven forbid to some folks...black! She takes her skin color after her black parent; therefore, there is no skin tattletell sign that she is bi-racial, which is not as unusual as some folks might think.
There are many dark-skinned bi-racial offsprings that exist. I know this because there are many within my own family tree. Bi-racial children range in various skin colors just like black people range in various shades of color.
Speaking of hate, the GOP party of NO, must really have it in for women. First they want to highjack your uterus and now, well...this... If your a woman that's having some violent domestic problems, don't look for any sympathy from the GOP party. Nope, instead looks like you better start enrolling in some self-defense courses or maybe keep a pot of hot grits handy. Nevertheless, I can't help but wonder which of those on the GOP side of the fence are beating their wives or girlfriends. I'm just saying!
Black and Brown men alert! Looks like the Corporations have come up with a slick way of being slave owners. It is no secret that prisons are modern day plantations. If this comes to past, look for the arrest rate to go up and also innocent people arrest rate as well.
Attention states with a corrections budget crunch: the Corrections Corporation of America is here to help. The Huffington Post reports that the for-profit prisons giant sent letters to 48 states offering to buy up their prisons in exchange for a 20-year management contract and the guarantee that the facilities would be at least 90 percent full.~~Ryan Reilly, TPM~~
In addition to the potential loss of state jobs, Fasano said that another issues raised by the privatization of prisons is that companies can “cherry pick” only the prisons which are less costly (meaning they have younger, healthier or less-violent inmates).~~Ryan Reilly, TPM~~
Notice that they want young healthy men. I wonder do they plan to have slave auction block sales. Next, they'll want women prisoners to use as breeders to produce more healthy slaves so they can make a profit.
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
