Your Enemy Will Not Be Satisfied With Forcing You To The Ground, He Will Pile On You And Force The Life Out Of You…


The biggest stum­bling block to black lib­er­a­tion in America, is the [white wing’s] refusal to acknowl­edge black human­i­ty.
Days ago I wrote an arti­cle which was a kick-off to what I hope will be a series on this sub­ject of race in America and the issues that I believe are the accel­er­ants fuelling that infer­no.
The aggres­sion we see com­ing from police toward black peo­ple is a small micro­cosm of the larg­er issue of hatred that a seg­ment of the white com­mu­ni­ty har­bors towards blacks.
They rev­el in every­thing neg­a­tive that hap­pens to black peo­ple. They have weaponized police to be their mil­i­tary wing. Not that the police were ever right­eous, but with mil­i­ta­riza­tion, KKK & skin­head infil­tra­tion, the pow­ers vest­ed in police must now be cur­tailed.
In a shame­ful twist of irony, the laws that are sup­posed to guar­an­tee equal pro­tec­tion to all cit­i­zens, the very foun­da­tion of what democ­ra­cy ought to be, is the very thing that has been used as a stick over the backs of black peo­ple.
They must no longer be allowed to weaponize police as a tool of white suprema­cy.

If you ever tuned in to AM talk radio as I do from time to time, you will hear the likes of Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Rudolph Guiliani, Glen Beck, and a whole bunch of oth­ers spew racist bile all day.
If you ever won­der at the sense of antipa­thy towards black peo­ple in a cer­tain sub­sec­tion of the pop­u­la­tion, and if you won­der where the poi­son is com­ing from, look no fur­ther than [white-wing talk radio].
It is a con­stant drum­beat of mind-numb­ing racist invec­tives that lit­er­al­ly leaves you with your mouth wide open.
You may won­der whether you have tak­en a time machine back to 1950 or whether you are in fact liv­ing in the year 2020?
They cel­e­brate the police, regard­less of the egre­gious nature of the crimes they are accused of.
Police offi­cers shak­ing hands with heav­i­ly armed white mili­tia mem­bers, while beat­ing to a pulp, those who dare stand up against the injus­tice of police vio­lence.
We have seen police fail to arrest vio­lent white suprema­cist riot­ers but vicious­ly assault and arrest those protest­ing racism. We have seen police offi­cers wear­ing the patch­es of white suprema­cists on their uni­forms.

The seg­ment of the white pop­u­la­tion refus­ing to let go of white suprema­cy did not get to where they are today sole­ly by being dumb on their own. they were dumb­ed down fur­ther by a media ded­i­cat­ed to the cause of dumb­ing it down. The end result of homog­e­niz­ing and con­cen­trat­ing that block is geared toward the con­tin­u­ance and fur­ther­ance of white suprema­cy.
My great aunt was a lit­er­al library of old Jamaican proverbs. I found that every one of them was applic­a­ble to the sit­u­a­tion to which they were applied con­tex­tu­al­ly.
One such proverb was, (If you tek time search yu wi find ants gut).[Translation] If you search dili­gent­ly you will find the intestines of an ant.
If you let peo­ple speak long enough they will reveal who they are.
What I find to be evi­dent in most of the con­ver­sa­tions com­ing from the [white-wing] is a refusal to acknowl­edge the issues that affect African-Americans.
Refusing to acknowl­edge the pain of the com­mu­ni­ty is a con­tin­u­ance of the 3/​5’s of a human con­cept, once enshrined and cod­i­fied into their laws.
It is a per­pet­u­a­tion of a sick and con­vo­lut­ed belief, albeit igno­rant and inane that deval­ues the lives of black peo­ple.
It is for that rea­son that I wrote, “when you try to change the sub­ject when I tell you what offends me you are deny­ing my human­i­ty.“
When you fail to acknowl­edge my human­i­ty you, there­fore, believe that I am dis­pos­able.

Sure, I under­stand that like every­one else black peo­ple are far from per­fect. I know that many of us do dumb things. Sometimes I find it incred­i­bly dif­fi­cult to stand with the cause, because I know just how dumb some of us can be. Just yes­ter­day I wit­nessed an inci­dent includ­ing a bunch of black folks that caused me to say, “Lord I some­times under­stand why we are not respect­ed”. Nevertheless, I just don’t believe that these are things that peo­ple should lose their lives over. Stupidity has no col­or.
When the Vice President of the United States Mike Pence was giv­en sev­er­al oppor­tu­ni­ties to acknowl­edge that black lives mat­ter in an inter­view and he default­ed to the white non­sense of, “all lives mat­ter”, then you know that they do not believe that black lives mat­ter.
They know damn well that when we say “black lives mat­ter” [we are say­ing black lives mat­ter too].
When they default to “all lives mat­ter,” every damn one of you black peo­ple must rec­og­nize that they are say­ing [‘your life damn sure does­n’t mat­ter to me”.]
Because they do not believe that your life mat­ter, and because they do not believe that my life mat­ter, they do not have a prob­lem when we are dis­posed of, by what­ev­er means.

Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart in a recent inter­view said, “Police are “enforc­ing seg­re­ga­tion.” “The police are, in some respects, a bor­der patrol, and they patrol the bor­der between the two Americas. We have that so that the rest of us don’t have to deal with it. Then that sit­u­a­tion erupts, and we express our shock and indig­na­tion.“
I don’t believe I have ever seen it artic­u­lat­ed any bet­ter than that.
The African-American com­mu­ni­ty has always been forced to sub­ju­gate itself to white com­fort­a­bil­i­ty, enforced by white police.
That has been an open secret. The most pris­tine, most edu­cat­ed, and high­ly placed blacks, have hor­ror sto­ries to tell of hav­ing to sub­ju­gate them­selves to the most unin­tel­li­gent, unlearned, uncouth, une­d­u­cat­ed moron with a badge and gun, mak­ing him­self fit into what­ev­er small space that white peo­ple allow him to exist in.

Black Americans, all of us, must know that when you give your lunch mon­ey to the school-yard bul­ly he won’t just take it and for­get about you. He now knows that you are scared of him, you are now on his suck­ers list. He will nev­er leave you alone until you make him.
He will not just take your mon­ey, he wants to humil­i­ate you as well…
As long as you allow some­one to invade your space and claim it as his own, and as long as you step back to accom­mo­date his aggres­sion, he will nev­er stop until he forces you off a cliff or up against a wall.
As long as your ene­my knows that you are more con­cerned with liv­ing regard­less of the con­di­tions he forces upon you, he will force the worst con­di­tions upon you.
If your ene­my knows that you would rather live on your knees than die on your feet, he will con­tin­ue to force you to your knees and then onto your face.
When he forces you onto your stom­ach, face in the dirt, with no place else to go, he still will not be sat­is­fied, he will pile onto your body and he will kneel on your neck and he will force the life from you.

Neville Chamberlain the pre-world war two British Prime Minister, will for­ev­er be remem­bered as the man who tried to appease the ani­mal­is­tic Adolph Hitler.
Hitler, we are told, saw Chamberlain’s appease­ment as a weak­ness. Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Agreement in 1938, relin­quish­ing a region of Czechoslovakia to the Nazis. In 1939, Britain declared war on Germany. Chamberlain, who had lost polit­i­cal sup­port, resigned in 1940 and died a few months lat­er.
Giving in to a bul­ly has nev­er stopped a bul­ly, step­ping back with the hope that your tor­men­tor will leave you to live in peace has nev­er worked.
It did not work for the Native-Americans, it di not work for Neville Chamberlain, nei­ther has it worked for Blacks who have spent hun­dreds of years being abused and work­ing with­out com­pen­sa­tion.
Why would any­one believe it will work now?
