The Pettiness of the AA Museum

I am very disappointed with the posture of the new AA Museum here in DC by not having one item or memorial to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

This is petty and offends on so many levels especially when a large segment of the AA Museum's collections pay tribute and acknowledges the genius of Black Americans pursing diverse themes and opinions.

Our community has the unlimited capacity to respect and value the diversity of voices and realities of Black Americans . One hopes that the AA Museum will reflect this genius and find a space for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas .

It is never to late to right a wrong!

BLM Haters

BLM at the core is about the restoration of the sanctity of Black American life in America. BLM at the core seeks to elevate and value the essence of Black lives in America in the post industrial era after the shelf life of the Civil Rights Era in America.

America in the recent decades has brutal and destructive and poverty stricken for a wide bandwidth of Black Americans not just the usual suspects the Black poor but the housing collapse and the recession of in late 2000's was also devastating for the Black Middle Class and the wealth gap between White America and Black America widen significantly.

Those who refuse to explore the themes of the BLM Movement fail to understand and recognize the scope and depth of the BLM. The BLM  movement encompasses more than an end of lethal police protocols and activities but the objective of the BLM Movement seeks to augment the quality of Black life across the entire political , social and economic spectrum of America. BLM Movement seeks to augment educational achievement in every venue of Black America. The BLM Movement seeks to bring the cultural genius of Black Americans into every social policy theatre in America from the public policies of local and state and federal governance to the economic goals of corporate America.

Yet in America of late those who oppose the BLM Movement besides the racists and bigots who are always in the forefront of anything Black in America there is a another more destructive collective and massive segment of America that seeks to end the life of the BLM Movement.

This force is the collective in White America that profits from the decay and decadence of Black America . The raw reality is the fact that large segments of White America livelihoods depend on Black decay and despair . White lawyers, landlords, doctors, prisons , supermarkets , check cashing firms, banks and others in the financial system are linked to the despair in Black America.

Food stamps drive the revenues of large supermarket chains as well as large industrial agriculture enterprises . Government payments to landlords of poor Black families buttress the bank accounts of corporate land lords. White lawyers make a brisk income on racial profiling of Black defendants .

The entire charter school industry is underwritten by preying on vunerable Black families desperate for quality educational opportunities and outcomes for their kids. Political parties platforms are based on the pain and suffering of the  Black electorate. Media platforms need drive by shootings and urban carnage to sell papers and produce clicks on their web sites. Crime prevention services are a lucrative business in not only Black venues but White suburbia is a gold mine for the fears of Black criminals coming to dinner.

Religion is also a lucrative extortion business for those operating in saving souls and appealing for tithes in exchange for comfort and prayer in dealing with the  grief  and despair of urban Black America.

The harsh truth is that BLM Movement is an obstacle and barrier to the money making yields of Black decay and decadence . BLM Movement is a social prescription that many in White America and others do not wish to get approved in the marketplace.  BLM Movement is a threat to a very profitable business in America.

Black Lives Matter  for all the wrong reasons for so many in America

Occupy America

The contempt for Poor Black, Brown, White and other  Americans  continues to be a real time fixture in America in both the private and public sector. Our goverment from the local to the State and Federal levels are soaked in this mindset and have been for decades.The private sector continues to manifest this posture with its rejection of any pleas for basic living wages etc.

It is also a reality that many Americans both rich and poor collaborate , support and affirm this contempt especially when there is a financial issue or a criminal justice issue at play. Far to many Americans could care less about the living conditions of the poor and even more advocate for the disparity in policing and justice in our nation especially when the suspects are Black and Brown Americans.

Michigan's EM Legislation was in part a template for the nation a twisted acknowledgement of the reality of a post industrial 'rust belt' era in Michigan and interactive practice of the soft bigotry of low expecatations for urban cities with Black and Brown elected officials. Both themes shared the space of disdain and contempt for the cities saddled with EM operatives.

The Flint, MI saga is a direct outcome of the nature of affairs in America circa 2016 from our inept government to our corrupt private sector to wounded communities unable to handle the streams of decay. America is better than this our very essence as a nation demands that we take hold of our country and righ its wrongs now or we will destroy ourselves from within.
