The Impact of **** on Black America

The Impact of **** on Black America
Posted By: Ivan Butcher II on February 17, 2017

My concerns: Divide and Conquer!

"

I came to America with nothing, I **** advantage of all the opportunities afforded me, and I worked for everything that I have." This is the standard mantra you hear from the industrious migrant.



The reality, Black immigrants legal or illegal, you are viewed by Corporate America as "Good Negroes."

I use the term Negro, because Corporate America does not see Negroes as a threat, especially those on bond, work visas or waiting for their residence status, and those illegal immigrants working for them in the shadows.



When it came to the menial jobs: nannies, cooks, house cleaners, chauffeurs, mechanics, gardeners, etc, who would be the first to accept below minimum wages, or compromise their values for a job? When the fair labor laws were changed to benefit minorities, quotas for loans, grants, scholarships, etc., who do you think jumped the line?

An Immigrant!

Those who worked for these corporate individuals would be offered opportunities, and the references needed when applying to anything in Corporate America.

My Reality: The System is trumped up against Us as a People, this is not an excuse. 



I went to Catholic school with the Irish and the Italians, in NYC. The Irish were the police, capitalizing on the Italian crime syndicate of extortion, and the Jewish controlled the courts profiting on the Blacks and Hispanics incarceration for most times trumped up cases. 



The Jewish were also the slum landlords and merchants, exploiting and taking full advantage of the plight of the Black communities to enrich their own.



After saying all of this, the issue is very little has changed since then and now.



The finger pointing, the fact that the majority of White Americans rarely live in or near Black communities, the criminals they face are their own, and the White Collar criminals which are also themselves, the Politicians and the Corporate Lobbyist, etc., yet the Black Americans are the blight on the State of the Union.



Since there is no limitation on **** cases and other civil liberties crimes, now with documented photos and business records that can identify the victims and their murderers / violators, this is where the historians and researchers, who love to correct and lecture, could be devoting their efforts in researching out and identifying those criminals.



Their benefactors and heirs should have to pay retribution and restitution for their crimes.



Every other ethnic group, who migrated to the USA, after slavery were given opportunities and privileges over Blacks in America. For one, they didn't hold past resentment for enslavement, so they were considered to less of a threat, and these groups were willing to accept whatever they were offered. This is much like the **** issue with Mexican workers. In union terms, those other ethnic groups would be considered "Scabs". 



This is not to ignore how other African descendant groups, from the Motherland and the Caribbean, take full advantage of this condition, I can speak to that fact having deep roots in the Caribbean. 



On accepting helpless refugees, into the country, is much different from that of an **** issue.


Point,  each of these groups, in a lot of cases were and are being supported by their governments with subsidies aiding in their sustainability, then each one brings one or the whole family, and then their village.  Not only are most of these other ethnic groups, many family members, most of them are of the  same Religious beliefs, which further ties them together, eventually impacting our traditions to fit their values. Instead of assimilating, they then use our own laws to suit themselves. 



Look at what happens after an international disaster, these refugees are brought to the USA, and tax payers restore their lives. We have tax and insurance paying citizens, still after Katrina, Sandy, etc., are still waiting for Government intervention in their recovery.



If you consider how the Black race is portrayed in Corporate Media around the World, it is no wonder why we as a people, especially those of us speaking different languages, do not identify with each other, The Curse of Babel.



Our so called Black Elitist need to stop trying to Fitting-In, "What they don't realize is that, They are serious, when They say that no matter which ethnic group referring, we all look alike  to THEM?" ( The Horrid Elitist Minority)



We African / Americans are a family and it is time that we begin working toward our own family's interests. The idea that, "Charity begins at home" is not separatism nor selfishness. The neglecting of ourselves and relying on others to provide for us nurtures that negative perception other families have of our community.




I believe it is time for White America to realize we are a Western Hemisphere Tribe, made up of many families, separated by oceans, cultures, customs and religions. 



To a lot of the rest of The World, We All are the **** Americans!
