KKK

 

It’s been awhile since I wrote in this blog. It’s appeared to me that some Americans have become concerned about foreign Muslim terror cells coming into this country and killing, and slaughtering innocent lives. What’s been more present is the fear factor among some people who has created this hysteria. Even though among the 14 people killed in the recent San Bernardino killings, two of them were black, it has certainly been more fear mongering from the conservative pool which a majority of those voters are white.

I watched a recent short documentary on the KKK, which seems to be rekindling their old flames of hatred, bigotry, violence, ignorance and yes terrorism. It seems idiosyncratic that pundits on tv and newspapers jump to the word terror the second they get a whiff of a Muslim sounding or influenced name. On the other side of the coin, Dylan Roof the man who executed nine members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church didn’t get that same label. It seems the characterization of that name was just out of reach for America to grasp, not to African-Americans whom never forgot about these types of attacks. In the weeks following the shooting in Charleston there were 6 arson fires in the St Louis area. Most of them were set on black churches. For me, how I see it African-Americans have been living with domestic terrorism far as long as the first slave ships entered into “Turtle Island“(taken from the Aboriginal Creation story).

The issue is it’s not just a few church burnings that keeps black people in fear and delirium. It’s the domestic terrorist groups like the KKK and the White Knights that have woven their hatred in secrecy into different factions of society. One thing that should become unquestionable is the fact since blacks and other minority groups are fighting a war against hate mongers, is that two offensive fronts have been put in place. The ones we see everyday are what I would call your classic bigot in the spotlight. This includes, the likes of Bill O’ Reilly, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and others who spew hatred the myth that the “White Man” is losing the country to N#$%% and Sp&^%, Jews and of course the Sand N%$%^.

These guys on the front lines of their views represent a portion of the country that feels affirmative action, welfare and other government programs are only out to help minority groups, even when the numbers prove they themselves are the top beneficiaries. More importantly than that are the racists and domestic terrorists that are hidden in the shadows and remain elusive. These men and women are more dangerous than any pundit, because just like the War on Terror, you don’t know who to look for and distinguish the rest from who are the real enemy.

One such case came to light back in 2006 when the FBI released a seven page document that revealed White Supremacist groups have actively pursued positions in law enforcement. Now, this may be new information to the mass public, but if you say this to anyone in a local black barbershop, you won’t even get a side look. This information has been long suspected among blacks, but my concern lies in what other pockets of government and public service could a potential White Supremacist be lurking. Could it be a congressman/woman, a judge, a doctor who you rely on on the operating table. The scary truth is as long as we don’t know anyone could be an agent. Like Neo from the Matrix fighting the agents, we just don’t know until they reveal their true selves.

One potential ally took a bold stance a month ago and released the names of possible affiliated KKK members. Anonymous who stated, “We are trying to change our world…”, even if this list is bogus, it does present evidence a chaotic coadjuvant relationship in positions of power that seems to create the balancing act circus that minorities have become uncomfortably accustomed to. The saying the pen is mightier than the sword speaks to the policies that were put into place that laid a foundation for the discriminatory practices such as Redlining, Sharecropping, Jim Crow among others. Black unemployment is at epidemic levels, black business ownership is way below any other race and house ownership is down as well. While walking into a massacre is probably the scariest scene one could ever encounter, we can’t undermine the back door meetings and operations that continually to plague communities that are underserved, set aside and forgotten about.

coon

I know I really don’t disgust these issues on my blog, but there has been small annoyances that I haven’t properly addressed. I’ll try to make this quick and just so we’re clear, I’m talking about black coons in America in this blog. So what is a coon? My definition would be someone who backstabs his own people to get into the good graces of the dominant society. This person will talk down to other blacks and use ignominies to further align themselves with the dominant society. The payoff for their blind allegiance can be tv time, radio hosts jobs, book deals and popularity among other xenophobes.

These specified pockets of blacks who turned their backs on their own would rather prove ways white supremacy and racism doesn’t exist. They promote the same code words and slander that racists use to blame the problem of our state of being solely on ourselves. While I don’t see 100% blame can be put on just blacks, I also can’t say whites are the only participants in our own destruction. Since the days of Ptolemy I in ancient Egypt when he stole the land and self-proclaimed himself a god there have been “sellouts” who saw joining up with the enemy rather than fighting against them.

Today, there is a definite audience out there that will listen to a black person who holds other blacks accountable to the point where there is no exception. Within the last few years you have seen more and more black personalities on the rise such as Ben Carlson, Raven Symone, Tommy Sotomayor, Jesse Lee Peterson, Charles Barkley, Michael Jordan, Whoopi Goldberg, Steve Harvey and more but I’m not trying to name them all. The reason these figures have been allowed to gain power in society and other aren’t is simply because they stay on the narrative that racism is a made up fixation that is used as an excuse by urban ghetto community’s way of life.

In many and almost all cases of police brutality the victim somehow gets transformed into the aggressor and the officer is simply just doing his job. I know there cases where black people are clearly in the wrong and we have the tendency to holler out racism before knowing all the facts. Case in point, when Daniele Watts(Django) accused a cop of being racist, some people automatically jumped to the side of her story, but when the tape came out and it clearly showed her as a liar and agitator, she was arrested correctly. In other cases such as the one this week where a high school student was dragged by excessive force, we once again manned our battle stations in the race war. Blacks on one side and whites on the other. The American coon see this chances to throw another person under the bus to advance their own worth among the so-called “elite” class.

When you’re constantly putting down your own people instead of providing a solution you have become not only part of the problem with race in America, honestly, I don’t want you at the table when we meet up for a solution. Some would argue that from birth we are taught to hate ourselves and praise white people and for that I can agree, but I would also argue is that it takes real discipline to yourself in a state of mind that portrays you inferior. Within the last three years alone, I found out more about myself online than my combined years of schooling. It is this self-taught education that commands me to try and expose this knowledge to the masses and do better for my African brothers and sisters.

When these coons give identical views as conservatives who would rather see you behind bars than empowering yourself, I feel you traded in your black soul for their alternate reality. As far as I’m concerned they can stay on the side they’re on. We don’t want you back. I can’t say we don’t have our cluster of problems, but we have to build with each other to fix it and draw strength from our old nation building ancestors and the ancient ones who built Egypt as one of the greatest empires on earth, still to this day. I say that to say that we can do it again, starting now.
