Many folks often enquire , ‘but Znend , why are you focusing on America when it comes to their atrocious,racially skewed, Human Rights abuse records, when there are many other countries , that ain’t doing too grand a job themselves?‘
Well, I will often say in response, ‘it was America , and not China that professed to be the bastion of democracy , and land of the free, so China can murder 50,000 Tibetans Buddhists, or execute with impunity , dissidents across that vast lands ,with a bullet to the back of the head , and in their desperate quest for natural resources ,cuddle Sudanese and similar Third World , political henchmen ,while protecting them via her lofty positions in unmentionable Multilateral Chambers ,but not America.
The Russians , their lifetime rivals , under media hound, and former KGB figurehead Putin, can murder every known independent journalists , or critic , and bomb Muslims in resource rich places such as Chechnya ,all they want, while claiming to be democratic nation , but not America.
Those French we know , are still grateful to American soldiers for halting Hitler’s efforts ,in making their country a province of Germany, that would have deprived us all of the beautiful French language of love. They can afford to treat their once welcomed ,immigrant population across their country as 5th class citizens , and as late as 2010 , still stir the pot of inter tribal ,and ethnic hatred ,across Africa from Rwanda, to the Ivory Coast, but that cannot be the way of America , a nation - in case we forgot - that was built by immigrants, or particularly,on the backs , and free blood, of African slaves, as well as their millions of still uncompensated descendants.
As for the ever conniving British, they can pretend to be a civilize , progressive , still flourishing global power , while riding the coat tails of their more powerful American cousins, as they hold outlandish Royal weddings , that will last as long as two inches of snow on the grounds of Atlanta, South Carolina , Florida , and similar southern state in these United States. There must however, come a time when they too , like America ,would have to admit their culpable role in creation of the most dehumanizing act of humanity in the African Slave trade ,and the wanton savagery,with the overwhelming trauma that followed for lifetime victims , even as we speak.
It is obvious that Britain ,more than any other country besides the USA , and one time Cold War ,arch nemesis, USSR, has -either directly or indirectly - caused more mayhem ,and destruction across the globe via her Imperial hegemonic expansionist forays ,but has escaped untarnished somehow.
It is not surprising as to what transpired , why , and the order in which they occurred ,since this wanton European savagery ended in America. It began with genocidal lynching of African men, massive Western , Southern , Eastern Europeans , Jewish , and Asian Immigrations ,to America ,to replace once free labor. It evolved to national demonization of Africans, as lazy ,criminal oriented ,illiterate , sexually uncontrollable,uncivilized ,kids producing scoundrels . It most importantly included ,a historically white, job enhancement 2.3 million Prison Industrial Complex cash cow ,that has flourished in a massive way, and help keep 12% of the US population forever powerless, when some half of such incarceration figures from within their race.
America emerged as a leader , at the end of the WW11 , due to the destruction of the rest of Europe caught up in their intertribal wars . Her position became solidified , in 1989 at the end of a pointless , and globally destructive ,and or wasteful Cold War, but one constant factor remained through it all , and that is , African peoples in this country were never made true stake holders in this country, nor even fully appreciated for what they’ve contributed to it’s development.
Every hero was attacked , as many were scrutinized beyond measure , then brandished as traitors , when daring to speak up on historical anomalies , they saw , and that’s a shame. It is evident , that after centuries of blatant disenfranchisements, via deliberate ,racially skewed social policies, today more than ever, even as token leaders such as President Obama , are trotted out ,for display as signs of progress, much is still left to be desired, as far as concrete social , economic , and political justice in America.
It is my hope that the traditional ,dominant white America , can one day come to the full realization, that irrespective of the vast economic ,and political might represented in this country,it can never fully evolve into a true Democratic ,and respected ,global, moral Leader , until it’s people addresses first ,that atrocious domestic past , by seeking to rectify it’s numerous ,continued ,racial injustices that exist, then secondly ,force it’s will on other global leaders , to do what’s right ,on a slow moving , rudderless ‘international community,‘where more are hell bent on maintaining the status quo , as it serves a particular purpose of continued global domination of others, they inherently -though erroneously -feels superior to. Time to join hands together as we search for ways to rectify historical ills, which often includes , modern elitist , closet barbarians , with evil intent , in all their varying manifestations. Stay tuned .
Justice delayed , is justice denied.
