Apparently, Governor Jan Brewer thinks she is living in the fifties or antebellum times. That heffa had the nerve to point her finger in the President's face and then turn around and play the modern version of the white female victim.
Sort of like those white women back in the day who falsely hollered rape back in the day to get a brotha hung...the scary, dangerous black brute stereotype.
That picture put me in the mind of Elizabeth and Hazel. Brewer claims she felt threaten. Uhhh...no Jan, you did not feel threaten! The only thing you was feeling was back in the day nostalgia when you could call a black man boy, or saw him as one, and white privilege.
You didn't look like you was threaten, not the way you was waving that little bony wrinkled up finger in the President's face as if he was a child you were scolding. It looked more like you were doing the threatening, a white woman with an attitude.
Well...you can thank your white privilege that your little bony, withered up ass did not have to lie face down in the gutter, spread eagle, handcuffed, and that the Secret Service did not arrest you. A black woman would not have been able to get up that close. Ask that Black woman that tried to talk to the President at the airport who was hauled off kicking and screaming during his first term.
Why the secret service men keep letting folks like you get away with some of the most outrageous and disrespectful dung y'all wingnuts be pulling is beyond me. Had you so much as raised your finger up in any of the prior President's faces, you would have been old news.
We the people know that, no one is asleep at the wheel; we're paying close attention, especially us black folks and other minorities too. In fact, the whole wide world is watching white privilege in action.
Well, it's a good thing for you that the President is a gentleman. And a double blessing that it wasn't someone else because you would have been at the hospital in emergency trying to get that gaunt finger sewn back on. I'm just saying!
It appears that you have a problem when it comes to brown and black peoples. However, what you do not recognize is that your biggest problem is fear. Most people like you get a sudden attack of fear whenever the economy is fragile or white privilege is threaten. Instead of stressing, you should learn to relax, go with the flow, and learn to see black and brown people as individuals instead of stereotypes.
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?
