Calling Them…“White Supremacists”… “KKK”… “Neo-Nazis”… “Extremists”… “Alt-Right”… “White Nationalists”…Means What??? You See… A Racist…Is A Racist!…Is A Racist! And, There Are MILLIONS…In America!!!

Media outlets all over the place are talking about the protestors…who they are calling…“white supremacists”… “KKK”… “neo-nazis”… “extremists”… “the alt-right“… “white nationalistsclashing with counter-protestors…in Charlottesville, Virginia…last Saturday.    Things ratcheted up Friday night…after hundreds of these “racists”…engaged in a march of solidarity through the streets of Virginia…carrying tiki torches.  On Saturday, The Washington Post reported… “Tensions began Friday night, as several hundred white supremacists chanted “White lives matter!” “You will not replace us!” and “Jews will not replace us!” as they carried torches marched in a parade through the University of Virginia campus.”  O.k…

The torch bearers also shouted… “Blood & Soil!”… “Blood & Soil!”  What???  These words… “Blood & Soil“…were used by Richard Walther Darré in putting forth the ideology that the only true Aryans…were the German peasants.   Darré delivered a speech in June 1930 where he stated, “In such a state, the German farmer is the cornerstone of the state’s policy. That should not only mean that agricultural romanticism should be promoted, but rather that the laws of blood and soil must find their point of reference as a top priority.” Adolf Hitler wanted to pull German peasants, into his Nazi fold, so Darré’s ideology became a central theme…in Nazi propaganda.  Now…

Hitler tried to pit…German peasants against the German Jewish population.   In 1933, the German government implemented the Reichserbhofgesetz – Hereditary Farm Law. The purpose of the law was to: “preserve the farming community as the blood-source of the German people (Das Bauerntum als Blutquelle des deutschen Volkes erhalten).”  The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum states on… “September 29 – The German government issues the Hereditary Farm Law (Reichserbhofgesetz) stipulating that hereditary farms (“Erbhöfe”) could only be inherited by German farmers able to document that they had no Jewish or “colored” ancestors back to January 1, 1800.”  In other words, Jewish people and Black folk were not able to own farmland in Germany.  O.k…  

These torch bearing marchers organized this… “Unite the Right” rally… in protest of the decision by the Charlottesville City Council…to move the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee out of downtown.   As part of their protest, this group of Friday night “racists”… amassed outside the St. Paul’s Memorial Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, while worshippers were inside.  A prayer service was taking place inside, including clergy members and other people of faith, in response to the “Unite the Right” rally that was to be held on Saturday.  Dr. Cornel West was the featured speaker at the prayer service.  On August 12, The Guardian reports that Dr. West said… “The crypto-fascists, the neofascists, the neo-Nazis now feel so empowered, not just by Trump but by the whole shift in the nation towards scapegoats.”  Now…

As a society…as the world…people have GOT TO call it straight.   We have got to stop trying to “clean-up”…shit.  And, White folk have got to stop trying to make it seem like the “racists” in America…only consist of…these groups they call “extremists.”   THAT IS A LIE! There are MILLIONS of racists in America…today.   Now, while not all of Donald Trump’s supporters are racists…MILLIONS…of them are.   This man received 62,984,825 votes in order to win the 2016 Presidential election.   And, his votes didn’t come from just one section of America.  Hell No!  This man got support from ALL ACROSS the United States. Can’t you see the significance of this???  We are talkin’…over 62 MILLION VOTES.   That’s a lot of got damn votes.  Meaning…a lot of people supported his racist ass.  And, they supported him…despite all the racist & evil things that he said & did…before & during the campaign.

TRUE STORY…   I use to work as an attorney in a state governmental agency in the State of Maryland.   I interacted with several different departments in that agency.   Racist hearts…were all over the place.  Shi-i-i-t…  There were White folk I supervised that did not want to follow my legal advice solely on the basis that it was coming from a Black attorney.   This racist shit…trickled…from the top down.  The White Director of the agency…upheld these White folk I’m talking about in their refusal to do what I said.   I actually had to get the Maryland Attorney General’s office involved.  The Director was extremely reprimanded by the Maryland Attorney General’s office.  They sent her a letter and copied it to me.   Do you know what she was really upset about?  She wasn’t upset about the very stern reprimand which told her that she was completely negligent in failing to direct the staff to follow what I told them to do.   NO!  She was upset that I got to see how sternly they reprimanded her.  Now…  The racist staff that I worked with were not…publicly…a part of any KKK group, White Nationalist group, etc…  However, not being a part of any of those groups…did not make them any less of a racist.   So…

Do not be fooled.  This shit ain’t nothing new.  The first census of the entire United States occurred in 1790.   At that time, the population was 3,929,214…with 694,280 of that population being enslaved persons.   Black folk would not have been enslaved from 1619 until 1865, without countless numbers of White folk, either participating in the institution of slavery or…being complicit in it happening.   Systemic discrimination would not still exist…without MILLIONS…of White folk either participating in it or…being complicit in it happening.   And, don’t misunderstand. I’m not JUST talking about Trump supporters.  NOT AT ALL!!! You see…  I DO understand that many…out of the MILLIONS of racists in this country…don’t want their hoods pulled off…so to speak.  They don’t want people to KNOW…they are racist.  OF COURSE NOT!   My goodness… “What would people say???”  That would DEFINITELY not be…POLITICALLY CORRECT.  Now…

Jim Cavanaugh, an NBC law enforcement expert & former ATF special agent and commander (a 33-year veteran of the ATF) spoke about the events in Charlottesville…to Alex Witt, Saturday on MSNBC.   He said something like… “we haven’t seen anything like this before.  These white-nationalist groups have political bases, support from media outlets, etc.”  And, then…

I listened to Brian Levin, Director of Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, talk about the rally in this way on MSNBC… “ We are at an inflection point.  What we’re seeing today are at least 2 dozen individuals and groups…coming together as part of a coalesced socio-political movement.   And, what I think they’ve obtained is some entrèe into the political mainstream.  President Trump has re-transmitted these messages with regard to immigrants and Muslims and limiting immigration regard to English speakers and cutting it into half.  These are celebrated on these far-right extremist websites. And, they believe they have gotten entrèe into mainstream politics.  Indeed, when the alt-right started they stated they had 2 goals.   Basically to stand up for whites.  But, also to dismantle the traditional Republican party which left them out.  And, now we’re seeing people like Monsieur Bannon in the White House.   As well as Mr. Gorka & Simon who are parroting and re-transmitting these messages of Euro-Nationalism which are taking place not only here in the United States but in Europe as well.   Indeed, a Greek, racist entity endorsed this meeting today.   So, what I’m saying is this is one of those ah rallies or conferences that is not only big because of it’s size or big because of the diversity of the ah notorious luminaries that are there.  But because these folks are now coalesced into a socio-political movement which stands on it’s own.   And, it requires those of us in the mainstream to say, no.”  I’m listening to them, thinking…

WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!  Since, when…did racism “just become” a part of the mainstream.   It’s always been MAINSTREAM.  It’s never stop being…MAINSTREAM.”  Racists have always had a political base.  How could they not…when…Congress…has always been full of them???  How could they not when the White House has been run by racists?  Are you that naïve??? I don’t think so.”  Now…  Jim Cavanaugh & Brian Levin…are probably seen by others…as well-intentioned folk.   I get that.  I do.  But, well-intentioned or not, they are doing more harm than good, when they don’t speak truthfully.    Both, are trying to make folk think that racist people have not always had significant “political power” in the mainstream of America.  I say…  “Get the $%#* out of here…with that.”  O.k.  Check this out…

Bill Clinton…Former-Democratic President of the United States (42nd :1993-2001)

is  probably seen by many as not being…racist.  I would beg to differ.   I remember what Bill Clinton said about President Obama when his wife was running against Obama for the Democratic Presidential Nominee spot.  DAMN RIGHT I DO!!!  Bill Clinton told Ted Kennedy, “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”  He was insinuating that Barack Obama would have been his servant…back in the day.   A person…who is not a racist…doesn’t say shit like that.  And…

I also remember, how dismissive…& how just disinterested Bill Clinton was…in stopping the genocide that happened in Rwanda…in 1994.   Because Bill Clinton, as President…voluntarily CHOSE not to get involved…the Hutu majority  killed approximately 900 thousand of the Tutsi minority group in about 90 days.   They slaughtered these other…human beings.   All Bill Clinton had to do was send a few troops in…& that evil shit would’ve been quashed…in no time.  And…   I don’t give a shit what anyone says, Bill Clinton CHOSE not to help…because those people that were being killed…didn’t look like him.   They were not White.   Now, today…Clinton says this is one of his biggest regrets.  It ought to be.  It just ought to be.   O.k…

Let’s take a couple of steps back to… Ronald Reagan- Former-Republican President of the United States (40th: 1981 to 1989) .   For me, Ronald Reagan was not someone who repeated Mister Rogers statement to Black folk… “Won’t you be my neighbor?”   A February 5, 2011 Salon article…speaks volumes about the racism that pulsated through the veins of Reagan.  Salon states… “Despite a growing international movement to topple apartheid in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan maintained a close alliance with a South African government that was showing no signs of serious reform. And the Reagan administration demonized opponents of apartheid, most notably the African National Congress, as dangerous and pro-communist. Reagan even vetoed a bill to impose sanctions on South Africa, only to be overruled by Congress.” So…

Maybe…  Just maybe…   If we stop pretending that this country is less racist than it actually is…then, we can deal with the hate-filled hearts…up-close & personal.  Then, maybe we can have heart-to-heart discussions about racism…that are steeped in God’s truths. You see… Until TRUTH leads our discussions…we will continue wasting each other’s time.   And…  Until God leads us…this country will continue rotting…from within.  Now…

Make no mistake about.  This “United States of America” is…ABSOLUTELY…divided.  And…  A house divided against itself CANNOT stand…WILL NOT stand.  On the road that we’re on…AMERICA…will crumble.  Jesus says, “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand.” (Matthew 12:25)
