Truth on the Scaffold
The Occupy Wall Street movement has earned my support for these very pronounced reasons. It is abundantly clear that there is corruption in our courts, Congress, banking, and business institutions. To deny that injustice occurs against the poor in these institutions is a moral crime. When the Texas energy company Enron went belly up, poor and working class people were robbed of their life savings and livelihoods by a runaway Wall Street type of corruption. To oppose Occupy Wall Street is tantamount to supporting the criminals who drove Enron into the ground while stealing from its own workers. To point out that many who are leading the movement are Marxist or Socialist is to say that truth and justice can only be pursued by Republicans or Conservatives. Moreover, we must remember that when governments or Oligarchs become oppressive, it drives the poor to a defensive form of social response namely Communism or Socialism.
I have painfully observed that racism is alive and gaining influence in America and around the world today. Like all other social phenomenon, it has changed and adapted to the modern state that it finds itself in. I have identified this new state as Post Modern Racism. However, it is also true that racism is a spiritual evil that exist only between Negroes, Europeans, and Westerners.
Or one could say socially that were it not for the presence of Negroes there would be no racism to speak of. Further, the advent of political correctness has increased the incidents and the power of racism. Ku Klux Klan or Jim Crow racism was far less formidable and most easy to identify and protect yourself from.
There are abundant historical facts proving since the disposing of the name Negro, Blacks have begun a fast pace journey into economic, social, and numerical extinction. It is evident with the illegal election of Mr. Obama who has an immediate White parent in his heritage which initially, psychologically tainted his Black identity among groups like the NAACP and many purest Black leaders and groups.
However, Blacks since the 1950s have been trending toward very poor leadership choices, and the abdication of the moral and family values that sustained them during the antebellum period. Yet, it has become Post Modern Racism true that Black leaders don’t help Black people become a more socially profitable people. The best example of this truth is Mr. Obama. But, it is also true that Blacks refuse to hold their Black leaders accountable while they religiously hold White America liable for every aspect of failing Black life.
Under the Post Modern Racism standard of Black leader, Blacks lead in every negative social indicator in America hands down. One of the worst negatives is that Blacks lead in abortion, but also single parent homes, men who make no commitments to their children or women. This negative has greatly crippled the Black community and is at the tipping point of being irrevocable. While it is true that some Blacks have ventured into vocations once reserved for Whites only, it is also true that they have not developed the intellect to understand how to change The Hood and lift all boats.
Politics in America that was once divided along social and policy lines of Hawks and Doves, Pro Choice, and Pro Life have now become centered on racism alone. However, this is Post Modern Racism and far more insidious than the Ku Klux Klan or Jim Crow. The Illegal election of Mr. Obama was primarily done because he was Black and held to a different standard; a standard that many psychologically deny when convenient or painful, but many also never fail to tout that he is the first Black president, or a racial accomplishment.
The Liberals had their choice and brand of racism in the 2008 election. Now the conservatives, not to be out done have found in Herman Cain the same racist opportunity to get even. However, I must admit the Liberals made a better “I am not a racist” choice in Mr. Obama than did the Conservatives. Herman Cain is a spiritual and intellectual train wreck in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. However, Ann Coulter states that our Blacks meaning Conservatives are better than their Blacks meaning Liberals.
The problem with America today is the death of truth in our churches and Congress and the birth of political correctness in academia and the media. The media that was once the referees have now become a group of bounty hunters which brings wholesale lies, dead or alive to the American people. One may desire to place a bet on which will utterly fall first. The whole Black nation , where the members hold themselves responsible for nothing in the journey to extinction, or the whole White nation who hold no truth to be self evident of their racist behavior.
