You've heard it - "What goes around comes around;" "It's Karma!" "You reap what you sow;" "How you treat others'll return to treat you," "Those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones," etc., etc., etc.
Well, to mix metaphors, the 'goes arounds' are certainly 'coming home to roost!' The myriad slings and arrows of outrageous
For all these 70+ years that I've been around, the wider, whiter community in the U.S.A. has ignored the fact that it has automatic, special whiteskin privilege and has tolerated the special 'non-privilege' of POCs. Fer Chrissakes! - POCs have been continuously lynched - deprived of their lives on the the single basis of skin hue - to this very day! (I include the Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell and other LYNCHINGS by the racist/colorist 'thugs-in-blue') (And, quite frankly, if anyone doesn't appreciate my continuous harping on the slaughters of BlackFolk - let 'em go turn Black!)
Do the 'majority' - the euraliens - really think they can continue to malignly tolerate their government's maltreatment of POCs, (including the massive messing with BlackFolks' votes down through history? - not that I am unaware of the giant scam that 'elections' are and have been; Miami Herald newspaper 2006 Report of 'voting irregularities')....including the morally-bankrupt segregation -by-color in every single vital arena of people activity: economics, entertainment, education, labor, law, politics, religion, sex and war (invasions)! (Did you notice that the nation's police don't HANDCUFF five year old white kids?)
They, the rinsed-out-by-evolution majority in this country, at their own peril continue to ignore their white male-led government's incursions aginst POC's civil and hueman rights at the same time yowling loudly (and in 'color exclusion') about the government's incursions against their own civil and hueman rights, as though their whiteskinprivilege should somehow protect them from what that same government's been doing against POCs all of these decades.
Yo! This is not how injustice and evil work: these negatives eventually become institutional and - perhaps later than sooner but certainly inevitably - affect everyone within their purview, regardless of color!
It would behoove the 'majority' in this country, if only in their own self-interests, to wake up to the realities of 'what goes around comes around,' and join with - in major meaningful ways - people of color to ensure that everyone within this racist/colorist society is equitably treated no matter what their color, class, age, gender, sex, national origin or religious affinity! What evil happens to some, eventually and - to acknowledge Karma-, will happen to everyone; haven't they learned from Martin Niemoller's description of creeping malignity in Hitler's
"They came for the socialists and I did not speak out;
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out - I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews and I didn't speak out because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me - and there was no one left to speak for me."
Classic examples of 'chickens coming home to roost' (Malcom X): -
El bushito GuantanamoGeorge's "I am the Decider!" -
The 'end of freedom of the press/speech' incarceration of Videographer/Journalist (white) Josh Wolf - for not giving up his video of an anti Madrid G-Summit demonstration in San Francisco - and for refusing to comply with an anti-freedom-of-speech federal subpoena.
Look out white woman and man! - the late Attorney William-Kunstler's predicted militarized police state's coming right down the pike atcha!'
Oh God! It's NOT "irregardless!" It's "regardless!" TRIPLE AWK!
It's NOT "elemenary!" It's "elementary!" AWK!
It's NOT "...of African descent" - FOOL! ALL huemans are "...of African descent!" - Booby - if you mean 'Black' - SAY "Black!"
