Know Your Enemy!

 

 

 

Malcolm X2

They make the rules for you to obey.
They hold the cards because they’ve got it that way.

They don’t play fair and they never will.
They break their own rules, but it’s you they kill.

They gave you a number and they gave you a name.
They sold your body and they did it without shame.

They made you a slave for you to clean up their mess.
They destroy your home and they say its progress.

They take your culture and they turn a profit.
They have you bowing and worshiping their prophet.

They try to steal everything you are.
They rule over you and they go too far.

They judge you and they say that’s fair.
They fill your days and your nights with despair.

They will always be your enemy number one.
They hate the beautiful dark ones kissed by the sun.

Malcolm X knew who the enemy was and he was killed for it. Yes, I know, the Nation of Islam killed Malcolm X and if anyone believes that the U.S. government had no hand in it, then believe this; there are no guns in Texas! Malcolm X was called many things; radical, racist, an angry militant separatist, but despite all of this, he was always right on point. The truth, he told, got him assassinated. The truth gets you buried and if that means, to be set free, then it is a most fucked up way to be set free!

Sigh, here is the latest evidence of who OUR enemy is!

White SC officer charged with murder in black man’s death

Dramatic video that shows a white South Carolina police officer shooting a fleeing black man after a traffic stop has led authorities to file a murder charge against the officer amid public outrage over a series of deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of law enforcement agents.

The video shows Scott falling after the shots and then the officer slowly walking toward the man and ordering him to put his hands behind his back. When Scott doesn’t move, Slager pulls his arms back and cuffs his hands. Then he walks briskly back to where he fired the shots, picks up an object, and returns the 30 feet or so back to Scott before dropping the object by Scott’s feet, the video shows.

Walter Scott may have tried to run from the officer because he owed child support, which can lead to jail time in South Carolina until it is paid, Stewart said. Scott had four children, was engaged

  1. Perhaps the time for slavery compensation is here. I’d say $5 million to each back person in America, and 10 acres of land, would be a good start.

  2. Reblogged this on An Outsider's Sojourn II and commented:
    Happy Easter, Merica!

    I’m white, and this stings! But I still cannot deny the truth in this post, and neither can you! The real truth hurts for a reason, the universe, or whomever is the creator, built the real truth to hurts, so we could changed and healed by it. But most of us choose to make up our own truth, and remain in the darkness, at war with each other and our selves.

    Read this, and then eat your Easter ham, and continue to pretend that everything is okay, because the book that speaks of your ‘chosen nature’, according to you god, says so. But know this, Mr and Ms white Merica, reality and the truth are waiting right outside your door, and sooner or later you are going to have to face and deal with them!

    • Thank you Sojourner! Your words are truly meaningful and I mean that! And I thank you also for the reblog!

      White America, as a whole, continues to ignore what is happening to Black people and they say that we should get over slavery. I ask, “How?” When the same shit is in our face today that many of our ancestors faced. Only modern technology has put the shit all up in our face with just some of what goes down and the sad fact is that Black people have been trying to have their voice heard, but no one wanted to listen and even though, video after video of severe beatings, chokings and outright murder have come to light, we are still guilty when some racist ass cop murders us in cold blood. I refuse to downplay this shit. And I will continue to call it out and denounce it for what it is, hatred of people based solely on the color of their skin, of which they can not help!

      Again, I say, “thank you.”

      • You need to, Shelby. I’m hopeful that some day, long after I’m gone, there will come a time for humanity to forget the past, knowing that it will never allow these kinds of perversions of justice, these atrocities against humanity, to ever happen again.

        But that day has yet to come, if it ever will? And so this truth must be spoken in this open and too the point manner. There is too much politically correct bullshit speak that was set up to accomplish nothing. I have lost a close friend of over forty years, because he disagrees with the way I approach these political subjects: I’m too angry and abusive, so “people won’t pay attention!”

        Well people pay less attention to the ‘you’re okay and I’m okay’ bullshit as well. So why not try a new approach to getting their dumb-ass attention: kicking ’em square in the nads, where they have to pay at least some attention.

        What X said and what you said, here, does sting. But we whites deserve to be stung by the truth, just as we Mericans, as a whole, deserve to be stung by the truth that this government is evil and destroying the world.

        Damn the tact and political correctness, the people need to be hammered with the truth for once! We have too many politicians and right reverends bullshitting, we don’t need anymore!

        So keep it up, my friend!

  3. Yes indeed, Malcolm X summed up the human condition quite succinctly. Color just another excuse for man’s inhumanity toward pretty much everyone. The only way to get out of this hellhole that humanity has created is to elevate our collective consciousness beyond this illusory I, MY, ME! As far as i know, the only cultures that lived in harmony with nature and each other are the indigenous native people of the world, which of course TPTB so desperately want to wipe out. They are the keepers of the ancient knowledge of wisdom and peace, and they unselfishly want to share it with the world. I pray their spirit holds up, because they are being robbed, squeezed, poisoned by alcohol and drugs, and all the indignities imposed by greedy corp. gov’ts all around the world. We have alot to learn and a ways to go, just keep awakening our fellow sleeping beauties.

  4. I am encountering a growing number of people – of all ethnicities – who reject centering their lives around money and their selfish needs. They seem to come to this position after recognizing that there is no real happiness in controlling and exploiting other people. I admit that most of the people I know in this category belong to minorities and that most are women. To be fair, however, I know a good number of white men who have also come around to this world view.

    The problem, in my mind, is that you never see these people celebrated in the corporate media. And because so many people center their lives around the corporate media, they make the mistaken illusion that truly altruisstic people don’t exist.

  5. The non-white is an animal.

    And the animal is an animal.

    And white men are the elite, a supreme being who has created a supreme white God in his likeness. Who, by the way, conveniently forgives their aggressions, and gives justification to their violence.

    And it is this mentality that we must come together against.

    I wonder sometimes, how I can fight for animal rights and expect gains, when blacks, in the land of the free, still struggle for equal rights, hell even white women struggle for equal rights, so dominant this male white power is. But then I think, it is this very mentality of superiority and dominion over the animals that keep oppression of the blacks alive; keeps all oppression alive. For if we willing treat the most innocent and vulnerable of creatures cruelly and without regard for their lives, what limits have we? None, as demonstrated.

    This latest blatant murderous incident in South Carolina, publicly know incident that is, has even a few of the most staunch Christian republican redneck hunters admitting to a possible police problem in their loved USA. But don’t look for anything to change, because I still hear nonsense such as, “Well, he did have warrants.” Yeah, that makes it okay.

    Aside from his religious convictions, Malcolm X, is a hero of mine. That is after he realized that some whites, however few their numbers, were / are on the side of equality. But, for me, that consideration must be shared with all beings.

    Peace, strength, courage, Shelby.

    • Thank you Peter! I appreciate everything that you have stated here and I too wonder how we will ever achieve ANYTHING seeing as how we have nothing to work with. And I read about what just went down in the south with a deep feeling of déjà vu.
