"On March 6, 1857, Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, of the United States Supreme Court, expressed an opinion whose remnants still foul the air of America today. He stated, “But the public history of every European nation displays it in a manner too plain to be mistaken. They had for more than a century before been regarded as beings of an inferior race, and altogether unfit to associate with the white races, either in social or political relations; and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect, and that the negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit."-Internet article

Here Justice Taney exhibited the “soul” of the white man which hasn’t been questioned to this day. When he said, the history of EVERY European nation, he made no mistake in pointing out that America was a European nation. While the white abolitionist of the day seized upon the latter part of his comments regarding white men respecting the rights of blacks, they never questioned Taney’s assertion that America was a European nation. They didn’t because they were of European descent and it would follow that if you where not European, then you where by default not a full member of this nation and your full rights could be truncated in private.

Today, white “Americans” hide their association with America being a European nation because politically and economically it’s not good to make the inferior, feel inferior. They speak with cohesiveness, but act with white nationalism. The recent Supreme Court decisions regarding race and education speaks volumes to support this claim. Further the criminal justice system reflects iron plantations filled with black bodies. The cities are engaged in urban removal of “undesirable” blacks while being replaced with “refugees or hard working” immigrants. The bottom line is that people who come to America from their own nations are treated with more respect than the descendants of the enslaved. This is because the descendents of the enslaved had no nation in 1857 and no nation in 2007 to garner respect, except the European nation of Taney.

When blacks realize this undisputed fact, then perhaps we’ll see that reparations are in order and we should leave this European nation. Even if we settle in a “black” nation that is presently controlled by neo colonialist, we still wouldn’t have to deal with racial prejudice on the national level. We would have other issues, but the one that attacks your “place” in the world and by extension your sense of belonging, wouldn’t be one of them.

Many People Of Color fight racism and discrimination for years but I think they have very little will to not fight the foundation of their oppression or to delve deeper into what they have and haven’t internalized. This may be obvious to many, but I’d like to give examples of what I mean.

I’ve taken two different “ordinary” news articles that we read each day in the newspapers or watch on television.


Lot 403--Painting offered for song goes for bomb

"It entered the auction as an 18th century painting by an unknown artist worth a few hundred pounds, but emerged as a suspected early work by Renaissance master Titian possibly worth several million."


Overseas Anglican Conservatives Strengthen U.S. Presence

NEW YORK -- "More conservative Anglican leaders from overseas are building up a presence in the United States to counter the liberal-leaning U.S. Episcopal Church on its home turf.

The Anglican Church of Uganda plans to appoint a former Episcopal priest as an assistant bishop to oversee its American congregations. The Rev. John Guernsey of Virginia will be consecrated Sept. 2 in Uganda, according to the Most. Rev. Henry Orombi, head of the Ugandan province. The date of his installation in the United States has not been released.

Separately, the Most Rev. Benjamin Nzimbi of the Anglican Church of Kenya plans an Aug. 30 consecration of Canon Bill Atwood to oversee breakaway U.S. parishes that have affiliated with the Kenyan church."

In my mind these two examples typify how People Of Color are inundated with racism and its progenitor, world wide white supremacy. From a black perspective, I’d ask myself questions when I read “news” article like these. As to the first article I’d ask, how many non European paintings are hailed as “masters?” Second, I’d ask, why such a high price when “beauty (art) is in the eye of the beholder” and these paintings don’t appeal to the ENTIRE world? And third, what gives Europeans the right to determine what is and is not a “master” work of art?

As to the second article, I’d ask, why do Africans need an “Anglican” god to propagate and what’s wrong with their ancestor’s gods? When they refer to “overseas” in the context of an English church, why do they point to Africa? What is the Anglican church doing in Uganda and why do the Ugandans accept an English church which is one from their “former” colonizers?

These examples have deep implications for People Of Color and especially People of African descent. In the larger context, they go to the heart of white world rule of non white people. When these types of notions are taken for granted and not challenged, it’s akin to non whites conceding their psychological independence to Europeans without a single shot being fired. Its Carter G. Woodson speaking from the grave, “The thought of the inferiority of the Negro is drilled into him in almost every class he enters and in almost every book he studies and when you control a man's thinking you do not have to worry about his actions.”

I suppose these are also examples of why I speak so harshly of Black people. I am hurt and disappointed that they won’t even try to not think in the terms their oppressors give them. I’m not asking that they quit their jobs, kill whitey, or pick up a gun; I’m wondering why they won’t think ancestral African first. Why do they insist on embracing, like the Ugandans, a foreign god? Why don’t they openly challenge the notion that European art, or Education for that matter, (look at how many of us send our children to Euro dominated schools and Universities) is the “master” form to be emulated?

I suppose I’m writing this because I care and because if we don’t embrace ourselves, we are doomed as a People and as a culture; while never relieving the white man of his burden and staying mentally poor and oppressed.

Who are the real terrorist?

“In addition, the report disclosed government plans to build a new database to assess the risk posed by people identified as potential or suspected terrorists. The chairman of the Senate committee that oversees the Justice Department said the database was "ripe for abuse." –Associated Press

The white “ruling” class and their supporters have yet to realize they don’t sell insurance for karma. Wrong is wrong and no matter what their rhetoric, the universe knows the nature of all its children and this particular child has always felt that they where more powerful than Nature, above the laws. They felt it was only a matter of “time” before they would control the heavens and earth. But they forget, a few “pesky” details need to be acknowledged like, time is their own social construction and Nature doesn’t have such restraints. So which one will last longer, The White Ruling Class or Nature as the ozone depletes, the planet warms, and the water is being polluted?

The white ruling class and their supporters not only want to expand into and control the heavens and earth, which is the same mind set that transfers into our daily lives. They bomb, lock up, manipulate, lie to, kill, for control over other cultures, as well as their own citizens for their resources and labor. This is the same as trying to exert control over Nature with their spiritless technology. They use propaganda to justify their abuses while flipping the script to cover them up. One such flip is this government data base for terrorist. Given the number of Americans in prison, have no health care, their basic Constitutional rights eroded in the name of “national security,” domestic spying, Patriot Acts, job lost to corporate outsourcing, a government and Executive Branch that’s above Congress and the idea of “the people”, while robbing the National Treasury to pay for the greedy oil barons and corporate wars, begs the question, who are the real “terrorist?”

I wish folks would take off the propaganda blinders of “freedom and democracy” and take a look. The white ruling class and their supporters are doomed because they can’t control the one thing they should, the hypocrisy Nature put in their souls. They refuse to realize there’s no insurance policy for bad karma.
