The Discovering Syndrome
Posted By: Ivan Butcher II on March 18, 2019 |
The other day, late afternoon at the beach where I swim, I left my sandals where I always do, when I get out of the water, my sandals were gone.
Reluctantly, I questioned myself, I looked all around for them, then I noticed this white guy walking around, which looked to be in my sandals.
Oh Brother! I thought they didn't belong to anybody, since I didn't see anyone around.
The Look I Gave Him… I took my sandals, So if you don't see anyone around, it doesn't belong anyone!
What is **** about this, along with the recent influx of "Carpet-Baggers," who are here for one reason alone, and their no regard for the environment, nor for the health or living conditions of the residents.
These times reminds me of one of many American history lessons, The Oklahoma Land Rush of 1889, when the US Government opened the first land rush into the Unassigned Land. (VI a Unincorporated Territory).
If to ignore this history lesson, we are placing ourselves in the position to repeat the same history.
Everywhere the "Carpet-Bagger" goes, it is for the sole purpose of ****.
My maternal grandmother, who was told by her grandmother, of the Cherokee Nation, if you want tknow how others will treat you, look to how they treat their own.
To the racist attitude, I accept that the White Race are not All or Always Our Enemy. The Enemy is Their White Attitude of Superiority, Prejudice, Privilege, Entitlement, Control, etc... You just have to be Mindful to Whom You Trust!
If not now, when will White America begin to realize that Black Americans are their only true Ally left in the Non-White World?
Christians, who still hold on to the old prejudices of the past, are making a mockery of the death of Christ and His sacrifice, a Dream Deferred.
What I have learned and won't forget, if it looks, talks, works like a Racist, It Is WHAT IT IS.
