Modern day Conservative thinking never was nor has it ever been about equality for the minority, only — tolerance due to the new era of time, but now with Trump in office, they no longer have to tolerate the minority. They are saying to the minority; you have been over-stepping your boundary for far to long. Why? Because of “liberal” laws as conservatives put it. Pay close attention to their language brothers and sisters and as you have noticed, “liberals” are no longer in power!, and it’s not just geared toward the minority, but Anyone who does not share their conservative way of life. The invisible Jim Crow System is Now In Full Effect! Wake-Up Young Brothers and Sisters, It’s Your Time! VOTE!
I wish to tell you a story about a slave who had gained his “Freedom”, and every time he entered a town or seen on the road, he was noticed immediately and questioned. Why? Because slaves could not travel alone, anywhere, and when on a road or in a town, a slave was with his master, and if not, he was approached by a Slave Master so-called [White man] and questioned — [where are your papers?] and he would become submissive, with eyes to the ground still being treated and looked upon as a slave, although he was a “Free Man.” If he did not humble himself, he would be Murdered!
This is still true to this very day. When you are driving in your nice expensive car that you’ve worked hard to buy, headed home in your upscaled neighborhood, you are pulled over and questioned. What is demanded of you? [Where Are Your Papers?] Once again, you MUST humble yourself or you might be Murdered! Ask the Rapper (T.I.), what happened to him in (March? 2018) — when he left his keys and tried to enter his upscale [a gated community]. He made it home to his family that night, but Breona Taylor, George Floyd and many others did not. What historical events does these actions resemble?
The [Gestapo, a secret police force of the Germany Nazi state, notorious for its terrorism, brutality and murder tactics], and there’s nothing you can do about it. The United States has now become “THE RISE OF THE FOURTH REICH,” meaning: “Internal Secret Police Forces” under the guise of protecting the American people and “The Department of Homeland Security,” has made the U.S. a Militarized Police State: Totalitarian / Authoritarian Rule. Can you see Trump now? And what is Congress doing about it? NOTHING!
To deepen my point; in an article written by Keith Johnson: Federal Grants Pay to Militarize Local Police. And since September 11, 2001, thousands communities across America have taken advantage of more with $34 billion in central government grants to equip police and sheriffs’ departments with assault rifles and exotic military weaponry.
In 2011 alone, approximately $2 billion in grants were awarded by the Department of Homeland Security, along with $500 million more allotted to existing programs. The accounting for this expense was recently compiled by the Center for Investigative Reporting and detailed in a report, America’s War Within: Homeland Security and the first 10 years of the war on terror. After reviewing records from 41 states and interviewing over two dozen officers and terrorism experts, researcher G.W. Schultz concludes that police departments have transformed into small army-like forces.
Federal grants are just one avenue police are using to get weaponry like armored vehicles, grenade launchers and M-16 assault rifles, suited to use on a battlefield. In 2011, the Department of Defense gave away a record total of more than $500 million worth of military surplus to local law enforcement through its little-known to the public 1033 program.
Passed by Congress in 1997, the 1033 program was created to provide law-enforcement agencies with tools to fight drugs and terrorism, writes Benjamin Carson in a article for The Daily. Since then, more than 17,000 agencies have taken in 2.6 billion worth of equipment. . . paying only the cost of delivery.
These are not given to the cops to fight terrorism, and the National Safety Council notes: . . .”You are eight times more likely to be killed by the police than by a terrorist.”
Do you now understand this article? Some may Not. Why? Because you have to be Black to understand. Its a cultural thing and even with some of our own people, they don’t have a clue, they would have to live one of these episodes first-hand to get it, and some still may not — saying; “he was just doing his job.” Just ask [CARLTON FROM THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR]. Need I say more? Yes!
Question? What is the answer? One answer is:
We need to raise the consciousness of our men and women, at the same time making them aware of our plight. How? By teaching them how to think for themselves and who they are, how to Love Instead of Hate. And we too of like-mindedness need to live close together and share our resources. Now our goal and meeting our objective should be?
The Goal: The ultimate objective is to address the educational needs of Our people, to endow an institution of learning that would compliment the general education provided by public and private schools and colleges.
The Objective: To prepare highly skilled, committed men and women and youth who would serve the community; to effectively recruit and prepare them to become productive citizens of society and ready for full participation in life, growth and development; and to ensure community vibrancy by effectively preparing those who have live through experiences and are now ready to give back.
We must now get out and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!!
