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

WHEN YOU REFUSE TO STAND UP TO THE AGGRESSOR HE WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED.” ” HE WILL FORCE YOU TO YOUR KNEES, THEN TO YOUR STOMACH AND THEN HE WILL PILE ON TOP OF YOU, AND HE WILL SQUEEZE THE LIFE OUT OF YOU BY PLACING HIS KNEE ON YOUR NECK UNTIL YOU ARE DEAD”.

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?
