American Justice: Design To Protect The System

10455671_10203771484181096_2260820563230053916_nLet me begin by saying; I am always surprised by the decisions made with regard to the American justice system. We have seen so many injustices throughout the history of America concerning black people; such things as the countless lynchings to mass incarcerations; not to mention the unfair verdicts in the courts. The fact is white folk know it is unjust, and this is because the system is designed to protect the system of white supremacy.

It is said that this man named Lincoln supposedly solved the race problem a long time ago, and there has been a succession of people after him claiming to cement such a notion. We can see that we have been hoodwinked – none of this is reality concerning justice or the race problem as it relates to the people of color in this country.

I was amazed by this whole bazaar legal process in this case; particularly two things. First, as I looked at my social media page, there were posts after post thanking God and many scriptures in support of the system. Personally, I don’t think God is too happy about the travesties! One post was particularly stunning. This person posted from Psalms; “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.” Frankly, we have been praying and being lead by chicken pickin faith leaders who are used as pawns in matters like the Trump pimps.

In light of the circumstances that have always existed. I’ll quote Malcolm X who said, “we are not Americans, we are victims of America” concerning Michael Brown’s death, the Ferguson scam they called justice, the murder of the 12-year-old in Ohio, and the near weekly murders of unarmed black people. These crimes should become a broader discussion of American justice. Mainly, the scourge of police brutality upon black people derived from a deep-seated fear when black male bodies are stripped of their humanity, killed by police, choked, and beaten with impunity. I unapologetically say that white people would not stand for their dog being killed and left to lie in the streets like the body of Michael Brown!

More appalling is the prosecutor’s repeatedly lashing out at the media, blaming the internet and “the 24-hour news cycle” for the unrest in Ferguson, Baltimore, and New York to also include other places. It appears as if the place fault on the dead – the victim as they did with Michael Brown was being held in judgment before the grand jury, much like the Trayvon Martin, Jordan Davis, and that poor little child in Ohio. Further, let’s not think that the information given by the news is anything near truth – it was a selective dump! And yes, I mean that literally!

“Bottom line: it serves the interests of law enforcement everywhere to have the black communities who participate in protests, as rioting and “animals,” so they, the cops, can come off as the noble protectors who stand between white people and the dark threatening enemy.” Tim Wise

Secondly, there was the officer’s fanciful account that was closer to a Hollywood script. In essence, their account of events seems more like a cartoonish description of the events. It has often been said that the issue was the officer’s state of mind. The prevailing theme is terror, but they never talk about the American terrorist – i.e., the KKK!

For example, the account given by Wilson in the Brown situation is a good indication of this: “Wilson said of Mike Brown “it” (He called the child an “it”) was like a “demon.” That the bullets didn’t “faze” him. This comes from the mind of someone who harbors a racist fear of black people and the thinking that black men are weirdly sub-human. He also referenced Hulk Hogan and said he felt like a child while being beaten within an inch of his life. The picture does not show that at all.

They want us to believe that it’s about looting, but it’s not. All of these horrific episodes committed in the name “law” proves once again that the system is not broken. The system worked just the way it was intended too. Let’s be clear, police departments across the country serve as enforcers for White supremacy, and the criminalization of blackness is reserved in the same vain as the slave catcher. You can go so far as to say, occupying forces with immunity. I wonder what would happen if they shot just one white person because he had a demonic face, and I believed he could kill the cop with one blow, as an excuse for murder.

A miscarriage of justice is what they would say. The problem is deeper than the police or the media feeding the public fear of black males with relentless negatives about blacks being violent, angry images they overwhelm the airwaves, and for sure they will blame black on black crime. There are those folks who want us to be constantly angered about “Muslim terrorist-on-American”; what about “American-on-American” terrorism as it relates to police kills and brutality.

They love to talk about Dr. King but they never use this quote “Injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere” or that he said, “America gave us a check marked insufficient funds”. They merely expect “Negroes” to simply knee and pray. Let me say, until black people look towards each other and practice group economics to obtain power. They WILL always be exploited and killed in the streets like animals.

Come on people; it does not take four hundred years to figure out if there is a race problem. However, it does take that much time to make the public think there – IT ISN’T! Maybe the happiest person in America last is Zimmerman because he continues to be the poster boy of such horror. This clown had the nerve to auction off the murder weapon he used to murder Trayvon Martin, and some bigot paid hundreds of thousands to own it!

W.E.B Dubois told us that a system can never fail those it was never meant to protect! Lastly, my heart goes out to the loved ones of the fallen, and to the loved ones of all the many we have buried in this country. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…

 


Politics 2016 All Aboard

007_1000I have witnessed the appalling darker angels of America’s past from the segregation era  to the present. Today, we can see that there are wretched people who have no problem beating, killing, or suppressing the votes of black people. When in fact, the oppressed merely want to be treated fairly and receive the most basic human rights, which is to live.

This brings me to the new or maybe not so new brand of GOP candidates, who are positioning themselves for a seat in the clown car. Let’s call them the 21st Century Citizens Council. A few days ago, the Cruz Missile, a weapon of mass destruction was the first to  announce that he is running for president but not alone in his thinking. There is a potential candidate under indictment; another soon to be; a couple under investigation; a preacher and my personal favorite a head doctor that has lost his mind.

All of them speak of leading the party of ideals or do they mean ideas. However, so far, I have yet to see anything other than an intent to relive the past, rave and insult America’s Commander in Chief, and repeal Obamacare; there is nothing ideal about it. We have a long sorted history to demonstrate what type of ideals they speak that is rooted in the notion that having a black man as president of America is lawless. Actually, his election was the most significant event to happen since the resurrection of “Jesus”. No one living or dead ever thought America (with its horrible racial history) would EVER elect a black man President; not once but twice.

We will see in the coming election that we will get more of the same; possibly even a Bush and a Clinton face-off to be the next president. Did you know that since 1972 a Bush has been holding office of president, vice president, or running for that office? Actually, a Bush has been influencing policy since Prescott in the 1940s. Worth noting, their policies have been harmful and when speaking of the last one; his reign was an utter disaster! Unless, you were one of them, which means they benefited greatly from a war based on lies that have lasted for thirteen years.

Now, for all of you who want to believe the candidates to come from the right will do anything different. I suggest you just look at the actions of both the House and Senate! Watch and listen to the language from those who get in the clowns car as it begin to fill. You will see that as much as things change – they stay the same. The Bush clan is being resurrected as relevant; Rove, Cheney, and the entire Bush family rallying to support this man who claims to be his own man, while relying upon the same folk from the past. From what I hear, the message is continue the wars, more wars, and rob the poor.

When I think about how these so-called real America tries to impose their will upon others through legislation. The mentality of these war mongers ready to see young people die is frightening. I asked myself how can these hawks, the Grand Ol Party (GOP), who are fervently Christian and believe in the right to life are so strongly in support wars. War mean one thing – money and has nothing to do with freedom.

Some talk about secession, calling for a new Civil War, waking a sleeping giant, questioning the president’s birth and faith, people bringing guns to his rallies while knowing this countries horrible history of assignations, as he lives with a disturbing agency protecting the president. This president has been called a Nazi, a Socialist, and frankly everything but the “N-word”. The answer might be because an elephant has a brain the size of a peanut.

Frankly, it is hard to find fault in what this president has done during his terms, unlike the last guy. He brought the country back from the abyss unless and one could say saved the Republic. I don’t speak for the African American community or anyone – but me. I have lived through and witnessed bigotry via segregation and Jim Crow. What I see today from this bunch is not too different than those who came before them! It is going to be a long year. And that’s my Thought Provoking Perspective…


Cause To Worry About The President

6I can vividly remember the assassinations of the 1960s that seemed to take-out everyone intent upon changing the American status quo. People, particularly white American’s, often use the old-adage today much in the same manner they did then, with statements like “what is the problem” when it comes to the issue of race, safety or basic human rights. The short answer is a simple one – “white privilege”! Yes, I know the usual response is “we had nothing to do with the wrongs of our forefathers.” I would accept that; if they did something to correct some of them or were not the beneficiaries of a system their forefathers established to protect their descendants!

We have seen outcomes in recent times where obvious and clear murder of black men in a number of cities around the country and heard the responses from white America; most of which are armed and seem to think it was the fault of the black men or boys killed. They go to great lengths to raise money and showed their support for the murderers, while on the other hand, when the bigot in Nevada and his gang of armed thugs stood down the government law enforcement authorities. They called it “Freedom of Speech”! Yet, the police put forth a militarized response against the peaceful protesters in Ferguson as if it was Bagdad!

This brings me to my concern for and safety of the first African American president to which the president, who has alluded to his own racial experiences. More to the point – in light of the recent and continued missteps from the law enforcement agency whose “job” it is to protect President Obama; we should be very concerned! I cannot remember where a protection force “let” people into White House virtually unimpeded or allow to be close as seen in recent events, as we have seen with this president.

Let’s put this in context historically; “they” killed President Kennedy, Dr. King, Malcolm X, and others. Yet, we learned this week that a man was allowed to stand beside the President Obama with a gun on his person in an elevator. This president, as reported, has received more threats against his life than any other president in history. Why, because he is black!

The republicans in congress have slashed budgets so drastically that has caused unreasonable cuts with regard to the agency assigned to protect Mr. Obama and his family. But they continue to dog him for the Bengasi situation, which was also the result of republican budget cuts. It is very interesting how they complain about the deficit while not providing the monies for the president’s protection.

However, in the interest of “war” the money is found and put forth to execute it immediately. It is reported that the new front in this never ending war costs around two billion dollars a day on top of the trillions spent over the last dozen years or so that we a know about.  Not to mention, these are the same people who involved America in the “so-called war on terror”, meaning the ill-fated invasion into Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as any other conflicts all over the world.

Now, moving to the present, the Secret Service is getting much-deserved chastising for an armed felon roaming free in the White House and the fence jumpers incidents. More serious are the leaks of President Obama’s travel schedule to then GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and a congressional imposter getting into an area where the President was at a Congressional Black Caucus function. The actions of what seems to be a JV-team responsible for these breeches cost the director her job and ignited cries for a total overhaul of the service. This is notwithstanding, a vote of no-confidence in the agency’s proper protection of the president, which might just be only the tip of the iceberg in assessing the peril to Obama.

The Secret Service has other woes on top of the at times sloppy way it has handled Obama’s security; namely staffing and being understaffed and under-resourced. The recent lapses also prompted a spate of complaints from unnamed Secret Service agents of overwork, low morale, and fear of job security; all of which has reportedly come from within. This is a recipe for disaster and it shows from the number of debacles!

If you can recall, there were major errors in the protection of Kennedy that day in Dallas by those charged with guarding his life. Yes, changes were made after the fact. There maybe some, but I do not want this president harmed or killed, nor his beautiful family, for something to be done to correct problems of protection that is so clearly suspect. It is shocking that not only have these incidents occurred but the agency failed to make mention to the president until it was reported in the news.

My prayers are with the president and his family because it appears that he is in great peril. And that’s my thought provoking perspective…
