Yelling White Power makes a White Person racist no more than yelling Black Power makes a Black Person racist.
Yes, of course, there are racists who scream “White Power.” There are also racists who scream “Black Power.” Racism knows no color limit despite what the #BlackLivesMatters and other Color Conscious Groups demand that everyone believe. Racism is both individual and institutional.
Ferguson Police Department is an excellent example of institutionalized racism. Baltimore Police Department is another example of institutionalized racism. FPD is nearly all White. BPD is nearly all Black. Yet, both targeted Black Citizens. Both also targeted the Poor and the Disenfranchised. Institutionalized Racism is only part of the issue with the American Police.
The American Police targets the poor, minorities and any other disenfranchised group of peoples precisely because of those groups powerlessness. The GOP and DNC pay lip service to human rights and the US Constitution and Bill of Rights just long enough to talk you out of your vote. Neither of those parties care about you and both parties are in favor of current police tactics and targets. As long as the Police do not offend the Politically Connected and interfere with those campaign contributions.
We all want to feel empowered. Unfortunately, the States have many of us Color Conscious. To be proud of the color of one’s skin is, in my estimation, stupid. Color consciousness and division is exactly what the DNC and GOP seek. That’s why Race Politics were invented. That is also why #BlackLivesMatters and similar organizations concentrate on the Racial Divide exclusively. That is exactly why despite Black on Black Crime being over 90% of the problem in “Black America” and the fact that over 90% of Crime against Black People being perpetrated by Black Criminals, #BlackLivesMatters succumbs to the Racial Politics of our age. These Race based movements are about division. The DNC and GOP divide the Citizenry and, thereby, conquer the Citizenry. Most of America is too ignorant to see this obvious truth which is why #BlackLivesMatter fails. It’s why the Black Panthers failed. It’s why Black Americans have seen a decline in their economic and social opportunities despite having a Black President and a Black SecState and the Congressional Black Caucus.
#BlackLivesMatter said that America has a White Violence problem. This despite the overwhelming evidence that most White people are apathetic about Black America and the majority of Black Crime in “Black America” being perpetrated by Black Americans.
The Black Lives Matters movement chooses to concentrate on the smaller, more politically popular issue because it is the easiest to fight in public. Therefore, it is the issue that will gain a brighter spotlight. It is the issue that will be popular with White Guilt Liberals. It is the issue that White Guilt LIberals will line up behind, reach into their pockets and hand over wads of cash. It is the issue that will create a new generation of Al Sharptons. Always eager for the spotlight and a wad of cash. Never eager to actually solve a problem or talk about real and difficult issues.
Most White Americans do not care about Black Americans because they do not know any. The Fly Over States are overwhelmingly White. The Northeast, outside of the major cities, are overwhelmingly White. To them, Black Peoples problems are Black People’s problem. White Americans have their own problems. Cops in their neighborhoods don’t have Black Teens to target. Cops in those White Americans neighborhoods target White kids. When #BlackLivesMatters spokespersons talk about Police Brutality against Black Men, they alienate millions of potential allies by ignoring the fact that Police Violence is not only a problem for Black Americans but for ALL AMERICANS.
Yeah, I know. It’s unpopular to talk about ALL AMERICANS with the Black Lives Matters folks. They think they are unique and that violence touches no one else. They believe that the government works for everyone else. They think that only Black People have problems.
And therein lies the problem.
Americans should unite to fight these issues. Instead, Americans allow the two political parties who have created all of the problems drive the conversation and frame the issues. This needs to halt.
Americans need to unite. Not along color lines. Not along class lines or party lines. Americans should unite as a people. As one.
Until Americans unite as one people and stop allowing the two Political Parties to define the issues, nothing will change.
We’ll have each “special” group clawing at one another and the Political Elite perched above looking down, laughing and picking up the pieces. Occasionally, they’ll toss a bone to this or that group. No one group will ever achieve anything meaningful and anything that is achieved will be at the expense of some greater Liberty.
So keep on with your racial politics and divides. Keep on with your Middle Class vs Welfare divides. Keep on dreaming that you will be THE ONE who becomes the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. It might happen but it’s a one in a billion chance. The Rich will get Richer. The Clintons and the Bushes will laugh. The Kochs and the Soros’ will eat Gold and drink Silver whilst swimming in pools of sterile petroleum.
Your children? They’ll drink chromium enriched sewage from fracked up water tables. GMO foods that engineer diseases yet unheard of. They’ll swim in rivers brimming with pollutants and play in fields contaminated and toxic. Oh and that minimum wage will never become anything other than the bare.
Keep voting for your favorite GOP and DNC puppet.
Keep believing that it matters.
Because…you know. #BlackLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter #GirlsLivesMatter
But never as much as #PoliceLivesMatter
Who else is gonna keep your poor Black and White Ass in line.
