Their fingerprints are all over every act of barbarism that has ever been visited on innocent black Americans. From inducing enslaved men to engage in sexual encounters with them and when caught crying rape.
From crying rape when they were denied sexual favors by enslaved men.
From the Tulsa Riots, to Rosewood, From the Emit Till murder to Susan Smith and every case in between, white women’s fingerprints have been all over the murder of innocent black people, particularly black men.
Today, they would rather pay their last penny to help save the life of a stray dog than show a single iota of empathy to a murdered black child.
The lack of empathy is nothing new, white women have always embarked on the systematic killing of black children whom they chose to beat to death for the most minor child infraction during slavery.
One of the issues that have kinda been pushed to the backburner as COVID -19 dominates the news, is the issue of racism, and the part white women play in it.
It cannot be lost on anyone that since Donald Trump ascended to the Presidency, he has made no bones about being the most openly white nationalist, racists, to occupy the White House in our lifetime.
I mean, we all knew that even among the best of them, if we can appropriately use the term [best]to describe degeneracy, Republican or Democrat, at best, they were all rabid racists.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN SIGNED THE EMANCIPATION DECLARATION INTO LAW.
Yet still, here was Republican Abraham Lincoln, in a letter to publisher Horace Greeley of the New York Tribune;
I would save the Union. I would save it the shortest way under the Constitution. The sooner the national authority can be restored; the nearer the Union will be “the Union as it was.” If there be those who would not save the Union, unless they could at the same time save slavery, I do not agree with them. If there be those who would not save the Union unless they could at the same time destroy slavery, I do not agree with them. My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause. I shall try to correct errors when shown to be errors, and I shall adopt new views so fast as they shall appear to be true views.
LYNDON JOHNSON SIGNED BOTH THE CIVIL AND VOTING RIGHTS ACTS INTO LAW.
Yet still, here was Democrat Lyndon Johnson: A crass & boorish specimen. Some historians believe Johnson to date has been the worst of the lot of them, and may to date be the most revolting to ever attain the presidency.
The Nationalpost.com argues Lyndon Johnson has been the most vulgar president to date, As the world awaits the next nasty utterance from Donald Trump, one can only marvel at how history itself has ended up in (language alert!) — a “shithole.” Amid the chronic shock and horrified reactions, people have become blind to the fact that he is not (yet) the most disgusting U.S. president in living memory. That title actually belongs to a Texan Democrat, Lyndon B. Johnson, a howling, flatulent tormentor of women whose cussing and racism remain breathtaking today. And if you’re offended by Trump’s level of vulgarity, you really — really — don’t want to read any further.
A recorded 1964 telephone conversation with Jack Valenti touched on Johnson’s electoral chances in Texas for an upcoming presidential race: Said Johnson, “I think I can take every Mexican in the state and every n—-r in the state.” “All they (the voters) ever hear at election time is n—-r, n—-r, n—-r!”. Speaking of appoint a black jurist to the court Johnson went on, “When I appoint a n—-r to the bench, I want everyone to know he’s a n—-r.”
So we have established that racism is as much a social construct in America, as accepted & practiced, as American as apple pie.
One of the false beliefs, as it relates to race, is the idea that the face of racism in America is that of white males. This could not be further from the truth. As I have written several times over the last couple of years, in particular when the issue of Donald Trump’s racism comes up for discussion, white women have used the safety of hiding behind their white men, even as they perpetuate and indulge in the most vicious forms of racism.
In the three years that Donald Trump has been President of the United States, a real phenomenon has taken shape. One that many people have found cute names for. Some people have even found this phenomenon amusing, unfortunately, because the end result can result in death, it is absolutely no laughing matter.
It is the matter of white women calling the police on black people for engaging in the most mundane activities that we all engage in, in our daily lives.
There seems to be an invigorated awakening in white women and an energized spirit to engage in blatant racism since Donald Trump took office. However, it cannot all be laid at Trump’s feet, no matter how repugnant he is.
We have all seen the videos of white women calling the police to arrest black people who are barbecuing in the park. Studying in a common area on a college dorm. Sitting in a Starbucks coffee shop. In Cleveland, Huntington Bank apologized after an employee called police on a black man trying to cash his paycheck. Shopping at a CVS and using a coupon. Alison Ettel was filmed as she called the police on an 8-year-old black girl selling water without a permit. A white neighbor called police on 12-year-old Reggie Fields as he was cutting grass in his neighborhood as part of his summer business. Last summer, Jaequan Faulkner, 13, opened a hot dog stand hoping to raise money to buy clothes. It was reported for not having a permit. In October, a Brooklyn woman was captured in a viral video appearing to call 911 and claiming a young boy had groped her inside a deli. The footage shows young children crying as she’s making the alleged call to police, who never show up. The woman was later confronted with surveillance footage confirming the boy never groped her. On social media, users dubbed her “Cornerstore Caroline.”
It goes on and on, playing golf, staying at an AirB&B, napping on a couch, visiting the pool, running a business, making white woman suspicious, making a white woman uneasy, I could go on all day.
For some people who have never lived in black skin in America, these things may seem pretty run of the mill. There is nothing run of the mill about these racist calls to police. They are designed to use the police to kill the object of their hatred.
The brutality and violent tendencies of police who kill black people are older than apple pie. It comes from as far back as slavery.
No there was nothing called police officers during slavery, back then they were overseers on the plantations and eventually slave patrols who ran down enslaved people fleeing bondage in search of freedom.
The sheer barbarism of that era in which slave patrols would have dogs literally eat the flesh from run-away people, beat and mutilate them, are still evident today.
Police still use dogs to mutilate black people who are already subdued, beat, and ultimately murder them, even though they are unarmed and are offering no resistance.
On the contrary, white serial killers are treated with the softest of touch and are generally well protected, including being taken to get fast food after they massacred multiple innocent people.
The website (face2faceafrica.com) succinctly writes, “What escapes many people is that the whimsical killing of enslaved Blacks in the U.S. during slavery, and even after by white folks without punitive consequence is based on laws passed by white politicians, who happened to be plantation owners as well. One such devious law is the Casual Killing Act of 1669 which declared it legal to kill a slave while correcting because malice could not be presumed. The “casual killing of slaves” says that if a slave dies while resisting his master, the act will not be presumed to have occurred with “prepensed malice.”
Does the penultimate & last lines ring a bell? Let us look at those two lines again, [if a slave dies while resisting his master, the act will not be presumed to have occurred with “prepensed malice.”]
Now, do you see it?
When you see a bunch of murderous cops beating the hell out of a black person while six of them are sitting on him/her, yelling “stop resisting”, over and over again, the idea is to justify the killing of that person.
As long as they yell out stop “resisting” no matter what crimes they commit thereafter is going to be deemed justified when they investigate themselves.
These conditions are not new, they were codified into laws, they form part of the fabric of institutionalized racism built into the American body-politic.
The new reality is this, “If a black person dies while resisting his new master [the police], the act will not be presumed to have occurred with “prepensed malice.”]
Now google the name, Eric Garner. Walter Scott. Laquan McDonald. Michael Brown. Philando Castille. John Crawford. Sandra Bland. Miles Hall. Alton Sterling. Amadou Diallo. Sean Bell. ………….
(Killedbypolice.net) reports that though there are proven methods that have resulted in fewer deaths at the hands of police, only a few police departments have adopted them.
One of the strategies that stick out that I personally believe would be of much help, is the duty to intervene if another officer uses excessive force.
The fact that they have not adopted these measures and in particular holding other cops accountable sends a strong message that there is no intention to call off the killer dogs from murdering innocent people of color.
You pay their salaries through your taxes, they kill you and serve their own racist interests.
But the laws which were passed to make it no big deal to kill black people were actually passed to protect white women who would maliciously beat and kill black children.
The crying that we now see when white women are caught in blatant acts of racism, or when they illegally offend a black person is nothing new. White women have always been at the center of the barbarism that has been unleashed against innocent black citizens.
Whether it be the horrific murder of Emmitt Till, the Tulsa Riots, to Susan Smith who killed her children and blamed a black man, engaging in horrific acts of racism and reverting to the little damsel in distress has been their modus Operandi for as long as this ignoble system has existed.
Sure the men provide the muscle but behind the muscle are the devious devilish brains that have fertilized racism and allowed it to continue to grow.
