Okay let's get back to it. The conservatives/racists/republic ans, say that there is no way to acurately figure out how to give reparations to the deserving descendants of the BlackAfricans who were forced into slavery here in the americas. I say that all black people here in amerikkka are disenfranchise victims and they all should be awarded. The mere possession of white skin here in the americas has come with the privilege of living a better life, a life not fettered with racial prejudice. As does the opposite when you possess too much melanin in your skin tone. This country is entirely and collectively at fault for this enormous crime against humanity and payment is overdue, with interest and penalties accruing daily. The Neo-cons are trying to foster a climate of poor america, confused america, overburdened america. I say that if america was poor, then who spent thirteen billion dollars a month in a war of adventure in Iraq. If america is confused, then who voted George Dubya Bush into office twice. If america is overburdened, then who shot a space shuttle into space every two months, for the last twenty years. America and it's Neo-conservatives are full of Shit. And I have the diaper wipes. An all inclusive boycott of the american marketplace will wash away some of the fetid, and putrid denials of the Amerikkkans. This lack of Black Peoples' hardearned to fritter away on inconsequentialities will force them to come to the bargaining table at last. To at least think about making an apology to us collectively for our suffering, and to start to make restitution. This government is the biggest deadbeat dad in the history of the world. The common consensus on the amount of debt owed Black people is four hundred trillion with a T dollars. What should be done is the iniation of a world wide superfund. Encompassing the european countries for their roles in slavery and colonnialism, and jim crow et al. I will give you some more time to ruminate over those nuggets and get with you tomorrow.
PEACE & LOVE
As a Black man surviving here in the wilderness of north america, I have often wondered what my life and the lives of my people would've been like had we been given our just due for over five hundred years of forced labor. In this country the only thing valued by this society is money, cash, moolah, cabbage, or as is commonly known wealth. I believe that every black child born in this country, should be given at birth 1.4 million dollars, and retroactively for all adult black people. The value of black people would then revert back to the days when as chattel we were considered very valuable. The lives of young black men would not be frivously extinguished at a whim by this society ever again. Those lives would be lived in a better version of the american dream than has previously existed. We as black people know that the american dream would not have existed without our labor and our inventions/discoveries. Hence the america that followed would actually become that shining city on a hill. A magnificent utopia, that would make what we are now experiencing pale in comparison. I have an idea for achieving that repair.
One of the most enduring arguments against giving us reparations has been that black people with little or no financial training would just spend it all on bling and other trivial pursuits. I ask you what are black people spending the more than eight hundred billion dollars that we generate now on. What is needed is a weapon, since another well versed argument is that the proverbial THEY, meaning the white establishment will never give it to us. I am reminded of the weapon that Dr. Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi used effectively in the past and that is the Boycott. If every balck person stopped spending for thirty days, I mean stopped all spending, no rent paid no food items purchased no spending of any kind outside of our own people. This would cause a great deal of concern on the part of white america and subsequently some serious thought and negotiations would ensue.
I don't want to over tax your thought process in one day so I'm going to leave you with those ideas to chew over and I'll be back tomorrow !
Peace & love to all my peoples in the struggle
