Black and White

White people are not the only problem that black people have. As black people, we also hurt ourselves. We rob and kill each other far more than white people do. I’ve been around long enough to know this because I have seen it and have lived through it. From the 60s, 70s, 80s up to now, the problems still persist because we continue to allow it to persist. We need to stop calling those who become successful “sell outs” “wanna-be’s” “Uncle-Toms” or “bourgeois” to name a few. We, as black people, need to stop tearing ourselves down and start building ourselves up. Otherwise, we will never be more than what the white people fear about us. There are abundant opportunities for all cultures and individuals in this country to succeed and be great contributors to society. We as Americans just need to get out there and just give it a try and stop making excuses every time we fail. We as black people need to stop blaming white people for all of our problems, get rid of the slave mentality that keeps us shackled to and living in the past. That doesn’t mean we should forget about the past nor pretend that racism doesn’t exist. But we need to stop dwelling on it 24/7. As long as there is ignorance, racism may never truly go away because ignorance is a condition that unfortunately is engrained in all of us in various degrees. But we can still work through it. Sure, there are assholes, idiots, dumb asses and very bad and evil people in this world, and they come in all colors. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t learn to get along.

The other problem is that we as Americans need to stop believing everything that we see in the press, because their agenda always seems to over-sensationalize everything that is bad in this country. I see so little coverage of all the great contributions that black Americans have done for this country. We contribute far more than just in the field of sports and entertainment. We have also excelled greatly in the field of business, medicine, mathematics, science, technology, ect, ect… There are plenty of books and articles out there that are easy to find on that topic. I guess black success is boring and not very newsworthy to the general media. We all need to stop drinking the kool-aide and believing all of the false narratives painted by the press.

Also, white people should not have to be forced to feel guilty about being white. Just make sure that as white people, you all don’t discriminate and prejudge us right off the bat based on our color. We may not all come from nice neighborhoods but that doesn’t mean that we are not decent and intelligent people with a deep sense of faith as well. I don’t claim to speak for all black people, and they don’t speak for me. We all have our own individual likes and dislikes, from politics, religion, taste in music, ect, ect. However, we are all trying to strive, thrive and survive in America just like everybody else. If I have offended anyone in this post, it is not my intention. However, I feel that a lot of people avoid facing certain hard facts about life. I am certain that I am not the only black person that has these views. Besides, I am on the latter half of my 50s and I am at a point in my life where I am getting tired of all of this BS! May God bless us and continue to guide us through all of our trials and tribulations.

We Need Each Other

“No single No one possesses the complete range of faculties. through social union, human beings complete one another, and mutually secure their well-being. Because they need one another, they have been created for living in society and not in isolation.” ~ The Spirits’ Book

Take a good long and hard look at what the so-called leaders are pushing for … I do not speak of the president, but those who fight against him.

Covid-19 came along after a three year attempt to impeach the president. The democrats, indeed, the whole advisory committee, pushed for isolation, and the covering of the mouth, signifying compliance, silence.

They sold fear, ripe and ready to eat, while this president tried to give the cure (hydroxychloroquine) which has even been proven to fight cancer … two for one. But what did the majority of Americans do? They swallowed the lies and rejected the cure … they allowed fear, hatred, and false reporting to take from them what they’ve been wanting and waiting for.

The government, previous to this one, steered jobs away from the American citizens, gifting the citizenry profit loss and opportunity loss for their own well-being.

People need to rise together, for anything other than that is ensuring our own demise.

PS – Joe Biden will be taken out of the race by his own team. Whomever they replace him with will be the true devil, or someone puppeted by him (them, since it is a group thing).

The vote will be for freedom …

… or for more of the same we got before this administration, a true slavery symbolized by the mask and stay at home orders.

More human trafficking, more missing people, more murder as they push to eliminate the protectors of the law, and release serious criminals from prisons.

Don’t let your hatred for one man cause you to throw in the towel on your country.

Regardless of the threats …

Threats that make the most hardened warrior crumble and apologize for supporting the president.

The war is real.

And it is bigger than any one man.

My hope is there will be enough Americans and others in this world to support and bring us into the light.

Pray.

Meditate.

Sing.

Dance.

Whatever you need to do to raise your vibe into one of appreciation and love, do it.

Nature works every time.

There WILL be a one world order.

It will come in the form of slavery, or freedom.

Choice is ours.

It will come from a place of fear, hatred, or good thought processing.

It is important to rule the emotions, and not be ruled BY them.

The enemy uses emotion against us … ALL of us, in various methods.

Notice it.

Stand your ground.

Reversing the KARMA from Hoarding Supplies

Great suggestion to reverse karma of hoarding necessary supplies. Be a blessing, not a sore.

Please….to the people that have bought up all the TP, hand wash, paper towels and milk. Walk down your block, go to someones door and ask them if there’s anything they may need. Then OFFER FOR FREE what you have, if they don’t need it fine, move on next door. Just don’t do this one time, one house, keep going, give some of that up. Walk around several blocks, get in your car drive to a different part of town where it might look like other’s may be in need of help.

I bet ya what, It’ll make you feel better for doing the wrong you did in the first place. You don’t have to know the people you help, you may even make a new friend or two. In times like this, people help people, neighbors help neighbors, and as for color, THERE IS NO COLOR IN THE WORD HELP OTHERS.❤️✌️

MARDRID, SPAIN – U.S. Embassy — Over 75 Indigenous activists and their allies demonstrated in front of the US Embassy in Madrid, Spain to demand justice for missing and murdered Indigenous women, two-spirits and girls(MMIW). The delegation was removed from the sidewalk by Spain’s National Police and followed for blocks. The police liaison with the group was held back and forced to show his documents.

In 2016, the Urban Indian Health Institute found that only 116 out of 5,712 cases of MMIWG reported in the United States were recorded in the Department of Justice’s federal missing persons database.

Inaccurate counts of blood quantum have had an enormous effect on Native individuals and nations.

PAPER GENOCIDE: THE ERASURE OF NATIVE PEOPLE IN CENSUS COUNTS

Native people were excluded from the first 70 years under the U.S. Constitution, which explicitly regarded “Indians not taxed,” or those living on reservations or unsettled territories, as not countable.

Native people, in particular, are the most undercounted ethnic group in the census’ history. Native people were excluded from the first 70 years under the U.S. Constitution, which explicitly regarded “Indians not taxed,” or those living on reservations or unsettled territories, as not countable. In more recent years, the U.S. Census Bureau’s own data has shown significant undercounting. In the 1990 census, 12.2 percent of Native people on reservations were undercounted, according to the Census Bureau’s findings. A decade later, the census seemed to improve, with the bureau not reporting a statistically significant undercount. But then in 2010, it jumped back up to 4.9 percent.

This is particularly devastating for Indigenous people because of how census data has been used to help determine many aspects of tribal sovereignty, such as tribal recognition and enrollment.
