Refugees or Police? Should America be in fear?

Refugee Image

The newest debate in America is the Syrian Refugee crisis, or better yet what to do with them! If you are a Caucasian American at a lower education level and/or lower income level, then you are most likely saying “not in my MERICA!” Whether it is the fear of what happened in France or the brain washing from Donald Trump which is hate talk disguised as security  measures for America! Most less educated Caucasian bigots or semi-bigots look to successful Caucasian people for leadership, which is why the message is so successful right now among the low income and under-educated Caucasians in America.

On the other side of the tracks the lower educated and lower income African Americans are still protesting against the police. Whether it is those still upset about Ferguson, or the Eric Garner murder, Baltimore, Cleveland, Florida, East Texas, or Chicago there’s plenty of mad black people to hold signs and picket all day long to go around! Protesting some bad actions by some bad people, but also condemning a whole American establishment that has a history of mistreating blacks in America, but also enriching plenty of black lives in America as well. Yes, I know there are a lot of higher educated, and higher income blacks marching too, but they are really marching to make more money  or just to say they were there it is a social  media trophy to sit on their mantle or badge to post on their Facebook page!

The biggest thing both of these groups of people refuse to admit is while they see both these issues as big problems, they completely hide from accepting the responsibility when the very things they fear from either “Refugees” or “Police Officers” is being committed by their very own neighbors and fellow counter parts of their own communities!

Caucasian Americans have committed random acts of terrorism in America than any Syrian, Iranian, or Saudi combined and multiplied, although they don’t call it terrorism even though that’s exactly what it is Domestic Terrorism!

African Americans want justice for everyone from Trayvon to Tookie in most case these victims are actual criminals! It’s unfortunate the Trayvon Martin’s get lumped in with the Freddie Gray’s! All the while we hold no African Americans who kill, steal, and destroy our own communities responsible for anything and expect the police to keep us safe!

See both communities have the wrong cure for the illness, the disease that’s killing the country we all love. Caucasian Americans think boycotting the refugees and leaving them no choice but to join ISIS/ISIL/DASH because poverty and starving children really leave a lot of them no choice, and only enforce the terrorist message. African Americans feel like even though we show very little regard for our own race, that everyone else should worship our very existence! We refuse to forget that even though we may pay some taxes etc… that we still have a responsibility to work along side the police to help root out the evils in our own community!

The truth about a lot of the refugees are unlike a lot of illegal aliens, refugees, or temporary workers already here in America from all over the world, these refugees are educated in most cases in technology and healthcare, science and humanities. We are not accepting a lot of uneducated laborer class people, who only desire to weigh down the government welfare system, we are actually importing a lot of doctors, scientists, and technology industry workers.Let us not forget they already have strong Middle Eastern communities here in America to join, which mean similar minded people ready to help them get on their feet, and get the ball rolling.

Honestly I think that is where a lot of the fear stems from, when hate speak comes from the higher educated and higher income Caucasian Americans. They know the refugees represent more competition in the medical care and technology workforce, no not nurses etc.. but pharmaceuticals and tech start up companies! For the few decades a lot of talk about immigration reform has been surrounded by the lettuce picking Mexicans and Hispanic workforce, but in reality the real goal was for the tech community to get smarter people in from over seas to work cheaper for longer and dangle the green card over their heads as incentive! The import of refugees will help alleviate the Silicon Valley under educated issue, at the same time will offer direct competition to a lot of small start up companies fighting for funding from the tech billionaires and any one else looking to get a foot in the door of the next Facebook, Twitter, etc…

In both cases we as Americans Caucasian and African American need to stop the hypocritical rhetoric that says that all Muslims are terrorist and all police are racist bigots! We need to realize that a lot Caucasian people have small military type arsenals that could overthrow a lot of smaller governments in a surprise coup. The fact that we can go buy any number of assault rifles, hand guns, and small munitions this weekend across the country at any number of gun shows who bank off the fear mongering political talk, which continues to bankroll their pockets! A mass shooting happens any where in the world, and gun sales go up, regardless whether its Columbine or Paris this is a fact!

African Americans need to realize in order to  make their lives better, it is time to debate turning in their cousin who has been selling drugs for years assisting the killing of their community the whole time. You know who the killers are, you know who the defacers are but no one is willing to speak up and do anything about it.When your car is stolen, your house is robbed the first call you make is to the police, but when he shoots the assailant you want to protest the police, something has to change! In the situations where the bigots are on the police force and in public office, we need to accept the responsibility to change the situation from the inside, step up and join the force, or become a council person etc.. hell go to a council meeting! Your concerned about closing public schools in your community, show up for parent teacher conferences 2 years before the school is determined to be under performing! We are preaching about the “Preschool to Prison Pipeline” but that starts at home, train your child to be a promoter and not a problem, but that means the parents have to step it up as well! Sign up for PTA, volunteering opportunities, etc… be a part of the community! We need to realize drugs are transforming from illegal to legal and the profits are amazing, instead of smoking it we need to start growing it! Relocate pool your money and get in the game!

These 2 dilemmas are different but at the same time pretty similar, both are a result of 2 communities looking for someone to blame for their own shortcomings! Allowing themselves to be guided by people who look smarter, or yell louder than they do or can! Many Americans of both races and all political affiliations are looking for leaders to follow, when the real impact happens right at our dinner tables, whether it be a four or more seats or a wood crate behind the local super market either way change is made at home on the first level of social responsibility! Our homes are the first place we have the opportunity to prevent the next Sandy Hook or Ferguson from even happening on our watch! We must learn and then teach to love and be responsible for our own actions and teach our children the same things! You don’t want your son to shoot up a church in South Carolina, then you must teach him it is wrong to hate based off color and religion, and if you don’t want your child in handcuffs at 7 years old he must know that school is a place to learn and excel, not a place to display his built up anger and frustration because his parents aren’t engaging in his life!

America is the greatest country on earth period! We as its citizens must realize that for ourselves because everyone on the outside already does! They may grow up hating us, but when given the opportunity to become a citizen, they indulge and bask in the greatness of our Constitution, Freedom and Independence they learn our laws and amendments and use them to their advantage. They take advantage of the foundation what America is built on, and adopt our Plymouth Rock, American Pride reborn and reformulated!

 

 

Tupac the missing link between Martin Luther King and true social equality

Tupac Shakur’s image and vision of his “Thug Life” mentality, was not the perverted and massively distorted vision and oxymoron  that Bob Dole and Dolores Tucker made it to be instead he was really reaching out too and talking to the single parent home, the hungry, the under and uneducated, unemployed, the downtrodden, and the forgotten American whether he/she be black, white, or brown!  Unfortunately his image and legacy is one consumed by ignorant and confused people who only saw the raw un-molded, uncut, confused and mislead young man who was actually the Next evolutionary figure in the battle for Civil Rights!

His aim was too picked up where his mother and other Black Panther leaders left, his message delivery was just, as if not more powerful than the quiet and peaceful marches and respectable manners for which Martin won our freedom as a race, but where Tupac differed is he didn’t have the respect, honor, and social acceptance as Martin eventually earned.

Instead it was a brash, young angry, and uncontrolled message that couldn’t be caged his fury and power wasn’t like that of Garvey and Malcolm X who both led with honor, dignity, and control. Instead Tupac’s audience had no guidelines or outline for success they had no road map to change they just knew where they was, and where they didn’t want to be. Tupac’s guidance was too influenced by the street life he saw, and also by the street life that the record producers, and record companies wanted to make sure got across because it was making money!

So instead of the millions listening to his message of revolution against the white people, and the Government his message came across like he was saying revolt against anyone that has more than you, including each other! Unfortunately that’s where it all went downhill, because the ignorance and laziness of poor people, along with the guile and sneaky intelligence of the Jews and other foreign music and movie companies he was guided to put a cage on his real message and make music that these fools and women wanted to listen to!

The reason I call Tupac the “bridge” is because Martin’s no violence and peaceful message had done all it could do for the African! Once the South was assumed to be “free” and Jim Crow was publicly outlawed, (though we know some still kept it as law) the fight for Martin was moved to the North were many of the blacks fled whether it be Oakland California, or Chicago Martin realized his job was still incomplete!

As Martin came into these new places were blacks were now living amongst the secret code of Jim Crow aka “James Crow”  he wasn’t being ran out-of-town or locked up by the local sheriff. No see they had a better smarter, craftier way to deal with him, they instead welcomed him to their city. Because they witnessed how being violent didn’t work in the South it only created a picture that displayed blacks as the victim and the  oppressor was the White man, well these images and characteristics would only deliver sympathy and rouse some of the soft white people’s heart-strings to feel a guilt for the black mans situation!

A bigger enemy to the black mans survival in the North was also present The Immigrant! The immigrant all though he wasn’t American and didn’t lift a hand to build America like the Africans did with their blood, sweat, and tears, they mostly fit in because they looked the same as Americans, they were white! Since this was the norm for them their only discrimination’s came down to each other and it was mostly religion based.  The immigrant was already in the North working the good jobs in manufacturing and processing and the black just had to take the customary low wage and fill in for strike pay type of jobs. The major issue here is the immigrant didn’t have the same white guilt the American white had for the Negro considering they were already considered to be better than the black when they stepped off the boat. They were able to form unions and they owned neighborhoods and communities they were the policemen and secretaries, the firefighters, and the lawyers, judges, and prosecutors by the time the black man got up north they even had the crime market on lock.

These were the rules and the way of life. With this already being set as the standards on how cities were going to be ran the politicians which came from these immigrant homes and communities didn’t have to worry about fighting Martin L. King and his black marchers being an issue or a real impact because they knew the old style communities would fight the battle for them.  See what I am saying is the no violence approach to civil rights wasn’t and didn’t work in the North because in many cases the white skinned, and olive-skinned people in the north weren’t the same white people who brought Negros from Africa on boats and whipped and made us slaves. No these fair complected people have no connection with blacks and only know that they can dance, and sing but besides their strong back and refusal to fight back for their own rights they felt as if they were better than them from the beginning. See the plight to America from a foreigner’s point of view was a new chance on life, freedom religious, and other wise they had fought in their own civil wars in their homeland and new that America could be a new way to fortune and a great place for their children and their children’s children to grow up and live great dominate lives.  In this reality of differences is where I think was the Jewish, Polish, Italian, Scottish, Irish, and German immigrants major trifle and therefore argument with the African-American.

I think they saw a weakness and laziness in the fact that this whole nation of Africans had allowed themselves to be slaves and allowed their children to be enslaved as well. The bigger fact and more evident product of slavery isn’t the physical aspect of it, it is the mental slavery in which my beautiful race still allows itself to hold it hostage! We haven’t broken the mental constraints of stepping out on our own, trusting and believing in each other, and putting ourselves first before anyone else!

This was more a of a brain dump for me at times it was all over the place and times it hit dead on, check it out and tell me where it guided your thoughts!

Black heroes (my anwser to a facebook question)

There is a void when we speak of leaders of today! Brittany not eberybody is on the same path of awareness that you and I have decided to for lack of a better term “GPS”, we live in a world were money has replaced many peoples desire to lead!
As I said before Jay-Z and Beyonce aren’t on the same statue as The Greats Martin, Malcolm, Evers, Garvey, etc… but on the same token Jay-Z, Beyonce, Will, Jada, Tavis, Dr. Cornell West, M.E.Dyson, etc… are who we have too depend on and make educated choices on what is valid and honorable! Louisville is a prime example of what being “stuck” is about, there is no reason for the ignorant deaths and violence to exude among our people from the West End to Newburgh! A feeling of lost, and jilted oppurtunities have encapsulated our race and communities! When all the while the lesson of personnal responsibilty is the real answer to 90% of the problems we as a people face!

Malcolm and Martin taught this basic aspect, as a life long building block! But as they were deemed to powerfull they were killed, using what I think is “The Cut the head off the snake routine”. Which really started with the assination of JFK they thought that for sure enough if they killed a President then those with similar thoughts would silence themselves, Martin wouldn’t, so then they tried running his name down in the dirt, you should read about what “BLACKS” had to say about Martin and his “Radical stances” because once they realized that he stood fro everyone, not just blacks they couldn’t pigeon hole him! So on and on he spoke out agianst sexism, racesim, immigration, and equal pay (he supported the unions) because he knew that even though you might gain some “freedom” what good does it do if you can’t pay the bills! But most of all his speeches and conversations about the Vietnam War and its condemnation is what got him killed! He wouldn’t tkae their hush money, because he knew that the drugs and guns, and funds that were being funneld back into our country was wrong and it was the Governments doing so, he didn’t understand why so many men and women of color were fighting for a country that was supporting the oppresser of the country we were invading! The Vietnam war placed the American disenfranchised and unrepresented in a position to go kill the Vietnamese that were in the same situation! So he had to go, because “what the government can’t control they destroy!”

The positive influencers that left from this era were bought, killed, jailed, and silenced! Jessie Jackson was well positioned to take the steering wheel and drive the vehicle after King was pushed out, but he chose the CASH! Abernathy landed himself in jail for 1 last time then he kinda gave up a few are in public service, as politicians and some are clergy!

Well by that time you have a situation were you have, a group of strong determined, stout, and proud people just chomping at the bit for a leader,  someone to take Martin’s lead and continue to speak out and preach equality for everyone, but no one stepped up! So now you have some people who have moved out the ghettos and burroughs of the North and South because before Martin we had a great migration from the South to the North, East, and West Coast some were educated and many were not depending on when they left the south but for decades they had been washing and cleaning for the whites and well to do’s but at the same time waiting for their chance to say hey look at my lawn and get out the poorest areas, where even though they new what they had since it was infected by blacks it wasn’t good enough, because for a bunch of them they didn’t love themselves! Sound familiar? So they left and behind them they left a young base of people some influenced by Martin, some by Malcolm, some by the drug addicted fathers that came back from Vietnam, some that just had no one at all, by this time women had hit the workplace and home wasn’t what it used to be! In communities where holding on your shoe strings and. Living check to check but to have a good time was always cheap and easy people get lost! Instead of positive black role models they were replaced with “Blackexplotation” ya “Supafly”, “Shaft”, “Dolomites”, all the while people who had followed Martin and Malcolm found new leaders and heros created by Jews and white writers played by Black men and women! Throw in some welfare, food stamps, projects, and cocaine and there you have the 80’s, 90’s, early turn of the Century black people!

But all was not lost because in communities you still had those that held onto to those basic core values and principals, teachers, educators, those entrpanuers, those who knew education was the key and they didn’t let the dynasty of Martin and Malcolm the Garvey and Tubman fighters that were white and black they called it “Black History” see not everyone could leave the ghetto, and those that stayed were not all bad and people who went astray thanks to a strong tie to the church and family!  Those were the people that raised their children not to forget where they came from so they wouldn’t be sure to repeat it! When the schools deliberatly ommitted African American studies in texgt books and denied slavery tried to act as if it never happened they fought for the truth, they fought for Black History in the classrooms and what wasn’t taught in schools was taught in homes and reinforced there by fathers and mothers hardworking individuals that belived in personal responsibility and self motivation and their children did too.

But on the flip side you had your lost and weary, your nonmotivated, lazy, slimey, low and cracked individuals that just couldn’t do right the easy street was their way to the top, some made it some didn’t. And throw in your professional athletes, and Ivy Leaguers and you have our parents generation for the most part whatever side of this coin you your family falls on you can trace it back to its source, some families who’s whole family tree dates back to the Southwick, Cotter homes, Parkhill etc untill they tore them down! Is it all their fault no, but at the end of the day you can only depend on you!

As you know crack and drugs, and urban squaller pertty much laid the ground work for our generation whether it directly affected you or not, that didn’t change the fact that you have a young and impressionable people that are just freed and opened to the “newness” of these oppurtunities their forefathers only dreamed of and died for!  It is why our jails are full of black, and latino men and women, it is the reason that States changed their laws to include align themselves with Federal agencies to attack “the problem” but more than anything they came up with new ways to distract us and keep us off balance! You name it tv, radio, news, internet, work, and church all these things are used to keep the family a broken and ununited unit, child support, is a family killer, the way they have placed a higher value on minority women and their worth more than a minority man is a family unit destroyer, the way money is used to keep you dependant on the government and the temporary benefits are family killers! The power that a stranger outside your home has to say whether you can spank your child or not is a family unit killer! Because they seen if they can kill the family, then they can kill the weak and undesirable! Well 1 of the major problems blacks have had is our willingness to fall for the lies that “our past is just that, the past” and we should leave it there! NEGATIVE, our past is the only tool we have to help us survive this present and the future!

Your feelings are Jay-Z and Beyonce don’t have anything to offer us as role models, I say this anytime a drugdealer can make it out the prohects legally flipping they dirty money to clean money, and also embrace their humble upbringings when your grand dad was a preacher, your mother a single 1, your faced with death just palying the playground, yes your life and road to success wasn’t through the doors of Harvard but I believe amuch harder door to break down, but when you make your goal is too rebuild your neighborhood, you have been to pay homage to your motherland and invested there as well with providing the basic needs of humans that we take for granted, you give clothes to the poor, because you own the company, you bring your money back to the community to create jobs by building a sports complex in your hood because you bought a sizable portion of the teams you bypass the average “have a baby, by and be a millionaire” attitude rampant by your “peers”.  When you and your wife who just happens to be black and the most successful at her game, tag team to make sure you do all you can to get the 1st black President elected (you know your hero Obama) when you single handedly turn the game around from guns and drugs to destiny and focus, from being somebody questionable to someone, respectable I have to say I can find honor in that, you know what they say you are judged by the company you keep, Oprah, Obama, Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Warren Buffet, etc… I have to say you deserve some respect!

We have to get waht we can from the people we invest in our leaders today are not as peachy keen and clean cut as our fore fathers, but that doesn’t mean they can’t or don’t have anything to offer! You have tolook beyonf the song and dance, they can’t help it they had to do what they felt was the best option to make it out the hood, and make a positve difference. And bring that success to the hood, Tiger Woods, he is no role model, but because for so long his good clean cut looks, and respectabke tone kept the white man fooled, therfore that allowed him a pass card and once whitey accepted it Blacks the accepted it! This clown denied his own race so much he went out his way to explain just how black he wasn’t hell he broke it down into percentages on our ass! He ain’t never gave shit back, or used his influence for nothing black related! “Tiger where having watermelon and fried chicken just for you at the Masters!” “Well okay Bob! Oh and don’t forget the Orange soda! Thank ya boss!” Yeah he smackedthem around the course, but he was the fool the whole time, and serves his btchass what has happened to him!  That’s the type of “Black Role model” that is being portrayed as the real positive black man and that is a LIE! They are some points and people missing I know but this is my rough draft feedback is wanted! Positive or negative!
